Back in 1940 a bunch of 48 misinformed children happily started school.
After one week they realized that it wasn't the fun Mommy had said it would be,
and they sadly settled down to face twelve years of reading, writing, and what have
Second grade marked the beginning of Lila Wise's hectic love life, and her
first conquest was Johnny Clay. In third grade Clay was out of luck because
George moved to town. That was the year everyone came home with dirty pants-
seats because Miss Schell made us sit on the iioor when we forgot our paint clothes.
In fourth grade we had Miss Layser, but even a red head couldn't cope with
us. Billy Rittle had a first class crush on her and she was having lots of trouble
with Eisley, Bollinger, and Clay.
Miss Uhrich was our fifth grade teacher. Most of us received our first slaps
from her. However, we thought a great deal of her and fought with each other to
clean out the dirty pigeon hole and to scratch her back.
Mr. Snavely, our sixth grade teacher, punished us by throwing chalk. ls it any
wonder that all of us came home looking like erasers?
Seventh grade was a big year in our lives. Now we didn't play boys catch the
girls. Certainly not, we were grown up. Now it was girls catch the boys. Eighth
grade found us blase to the rigors of high school. This year many of us occupied
the corners of Mr. Mitchell's science class.
The voice of Miss Donough, our ninth grade homeroom teacher, was often
heard echoing throughout the halls. This year many of us struggled in our efforts
to understand algebra. Jeanne and Joyce had their first escapade with the office
due to their hookey-playing.
Tenth grade found Jeanne and Joyce still in trouble with the oliice. The 10-A
section was exceptionally well-behaved since Mr. Batdorf was their homeroom
teacher. The end of the year found us happily sporting our new class jackets.
Miss Immel and Mr. Lantz were the unfortunate teachers to have charge of
us in eleventh grade . The pupils in Mr. Lantz's homeroom never had the same seat
for more than two weeks. This year class rings circulated throughout the various
Finally we achieved our goal. We were at last sophisticated seniors. 1952
found us ready and waiting to go out into the world, but what did the world have in
store for us? It was very unusual for any of the seniors to be found in classes this,
our last year. Much of our time was spent in the candy room enjoying candy and
We worked hard this year, but were rewarded in our trip to New York City in
May. By the end of the year we no longer were the mischievous students we had
been, but were partially settled and more mature.
Commencement exercises found us happy in our knowing that twelve years of
school were now completedg and also sad to leave the halls of dear M. H. S.
As we look ahead fifteen years we see the members of the Class of 1952 as-
suming the roles of both leading and well known citizens of our country.
Myerstown has elected its first woman burgess, Prohibition candidate-Caro-
lyn Lebo. The man responsible for her election is Marvin Weidner, a sworn totali-
tarian Cnot saying which way he teetotals.JAnother outstanding figure in the political
world is Raymond Phillips, who has recently been nominated for the national presi-
dency by the Vegetarian Party. "Wild Carol" Bird and "Saddle Crazy" Harding
are touring the country with their exciting Wild West Show. Pat Umberger has
recently been honored with the title of Mother of the Year because as well as rais-
ing twenty-four children she also raised a brood of 500,000 chickens. Marlene
Garloff, and Joann Yeagley are the featured stars in Ronald Sell's Aquacade. Mar-
ian O'Bryan and Lanny Schott are the happily married proprietors of "Chuppie's
Inn." The outstanding show on Broadway is "North Atlantic" written by Joyce
Keeney. Its star is none other than Russell MMario" Yost, who is taking the place
of the immortal Jack Haines. Two other famous showpeople are Shirley Frantz
and Richard Andrews, who are appearing at the Met in Phyllis Kline's opera,
Schnitzelbank. Robert Brown has been awarded an Oscar for his role in a remake
of "The Great Caruso." James Gaylor's All-Girl Orchestra now features Iris Brick-
er and her Magic Violin. Marian Umberger has recently obtained her thirteenth
divorce, and she has been asked by the Nevada Chamber of Commerce to establish
a permanent residence in Reno. Oil Tycoon, Fred Ruppenthal and his wife, Shirley
Ranaldi Ruppenthal, have recently returned from Puerto Rico where they claimed
two new gushers. The New York Social Register has named Lila Wise the Deb of
the Year. Their president is George Eisley. Glenn Donough has been given the
Emerson Hauer Award for outstanding research in the field of animal breeding.
Glenn has cross-bred an owl and a goat and presented to the world a Hoot-Nanny.
Doris Keener and Ray Tobias have opened an auction house on the road to Bul'fy's.
The national basketball champs are Barbara Shott's Speedgirls. Her star players
are "Tricky Dribble" Wengert and "Wingfoot', Stecher. Gwen Miller has signed a
contract with the girl's Olympic Poker Team. Ronald Lehman is a prominent
candy manufacturer, and his private secretary is Nancy Ream. Friends predict a
marriage in the near future. Millie Clay, June Miller, Janice Bashore, and Lynn
Peilfer are professors at Guy Wartluft's Streetcleaners and Janitors College. Alta
Hess is the Dean of Women and Richard Souders the Dean of Men. The William
Shuey Memorial Hospital has recently elected to the staff a new doctor and two
nurses. The doctor is the brilliant brain surgeon, Harry Shaak, and the nurses are
Mary Rothenbach and Shirley Muth. Multi-millionaire William Rittle has just
published his life story, From Rags to Riches with a Lebanon Daily News Paper
Route. The Zug Manufacturing Company, canners of Riter's Tomater Sauce has
opened a new plant in Mt. Zion. Orval Garlotf is in charge of the rotten tomatoes
and Kenneth Yiengst is the sales Manager. Calvin Beamesderfer has opened a
new night club in Reistville called Calypso Callie's Cabana. He sells drinks to ex-
minors exclusively and his business is exceptionally fine. James Bollinger, founder
of Suppie's Slurpy Soups Inc., is Myerstown's latest millionaire which makes Carolyn
Ressler especially happy. Ellen Snyder is still in M. H. S. with the additional duty
of being secretary to Mr. Bennetch. Julia Beidler, Shirley Miller, Gladys Ziegler,
and Gail Dietrich are old married women content and happy raising broods of
children. Howard Brandt is a singer on the Grand Ole Opry hour, as well as a soap
manufacturer. Maryellen Frantz has written a thesis on Einstein's Theory of Rela-
tivity arguing that it is unfair to aunts and uncles. Eugene Brightbill is giving doc-
tors the 30 day Camel test. His side-kick, Connie Kessler, is dancing for the Muriel
Cigar ads. Arlenei Shower and Marilyn Schell have opened a new resort hotel in
Atlantic City only ten miles from the Boardwalk. In the television field Della Long
and Neal Hoke are delighting audiences with "Della and Nealie's Breakfast Club."
Robert Wetzel and Loretta Stum have opened a dancing studio in New York where
he is popularly known as the Square Dance Kid. Loretta Fogelman is having her
first art exhibition of her breath-taking oil paintings in the David Hoover Museum
for Struggling Artists. Last, but not least, we mention John Clay, our ill-fated ex-
plorer who, when last heard from, was wandering in the Amazon Jungle looking
