We advanced in '38 to Miss Bittle, our second grade teacher, where we learned the 3R's. Miss Schell guided us through third grade, Miss Klopp, fourth, Mlss Uhrich, fifth, and finally we reached the height of our hill school career, sixth grade. Miss Gruber bade us farewell and then we were launched on a new and exciting part of our school life--junior high school. We entered junior high school with a wonderful feeling and with new hopes because we could now go to the dances and join the varlou activities. Many romances began to blossom ln eventh grade. In eighth grade we became more confident of ourselves. We knew the various rooms and we were no longer late for classes. In tenth grade we selected pennants, hats, and our class colors, blue and white. As juniors we sported flashy class rings and sponsored that gala affair-- the Junior and Senior Prom. Now we were the leaders of our school--Seniors. We had many happy tlmes in our senior year. We had worked hard but our labors were rewarded. On May 8th, we left for New York City, and after 3 wonderful days we returned to Myerstown on May 10. Class night saw us together, having fun as a class, for the last time. Finally, with tears in our eyes, we reached the highlight--graduation. We were sorry to leave you, dear Alma Mater, but happy to join the ranks of the alumni. Our First and Final Will We, the class of '50, well-known Myerstonlans, well-educated at Myerstown High School, situated at Railroad and Carpenter Streets, a most beautiful a.nd southern section of this borough, grant this publishment of our most cherished ownings unto the said party, to have and to hold--or else, put these things, which we so dearly bequeath, in a wheelbarrow and haul them to success.

I5 Class Prophecy The sands of time in the hour glass have been running slowly for twenty- five years. This is nota usual hourglass which fortells birth, youth, marriage, and death, but this is the senior hourglass of the mid-century class of '50. With cherished thoughts of these students--in first grade, in sixth grade, as freshmen, and finally as Seniors in M. H. S., we see the same pupils, but mat1u'e, in the year 1975. As the sand runs slowly and regularly through Father Time's Clock, we see the faces, some which we recognize, butothers which are wrinkle-streaked, gray-haired, and worn with success or failure. As we examine these sands we see them in their present occupations-- Betty Gass and Stella Schnoke are operating the "We Mess You Up Beauty Salon."

" Now working at the "Everyone Welcome Town Jail" is the lawyer who knows nothing about law, Kenneth Lentz, and the sheriff, Lazy Lefty Leffler of Lebanon County. The sailors of the class, Glenn Balthaser, Harold Swanger and Dick Brown, will receive their honorable dishonorable discharge as soon as they can be located on the high sea--Strack's Dam.
