" The Class of " 54 " wishes to preserve all the memories of their happy high school days through this yearbook. As our footsteps carry us away from school into our separate lives we long to think back over our experiences in Myerstown High. The work on the yearbook began before Christmas 1953, when Miss Immel, the Myrialog staff of twenty-two members, and coop- erative students began fulfilling the assignments given them by the editor, Dolores Phillippy. Miss Welch aided the artists in com- pleting the cover. Finally, the students ' work was submitted to the Church Center Press at Myerstown. The presses rolled off these handsome yearbooks all ready for the seniors and patrons. Our sincere thanks to these workers. And now as you turn each page, may a remembrance fill your heart of the joys you had at Myerstown High. —2— DR. CHARLES F. ROUH Dedication We, the Class of 1954, sincerely dedi- cate our yearbook. " The Myrialog, " in memory of Dr. Charles F. Rouh. who died January 7, 1954 Dr. Rouh faithfully and unhesitatingly served as the school doctor for fourteen years, besides rendering extensive medical service throughout Myerstown and sur- rounding areas. His patients thought high- ly of him, both as a doctor, and as a friend. The school, too, will not forget the untiring efforts and medical assistance which were so willingly given by Dr. Rouh. The dedication of this yearrbook is our mettioriam to this man who contributed so greatly to the welfare of our school and our community. —3— Tribute We oft times take for granted the work of Miss Immel. She scampers around deUvering Lan- dis and Landis orders, oversees work at the fair, makes us fill our quota selHng magazines, and always has words of ad- vice for those in need. We need to express verbal thanks to her as well as these words of thanks. To her now we pay special tribute for the careful planning of many important occasions in the senior year. We are sure her excellent judgment will guide future classes to a successful graduation. Myrialog Staff Row 1 — Richard Roller. Virginia Lebo, Michael Hottenstein. Carol Hollinger, Dolores Phillippy.

Let us cheer our dear old High, We revere her and defend her, and her colors proudly fly: We will stand for her united. Of her deeds we gladly tell, Her colors streaming. Glad faces beaming. So here ' s a cheer for her that we all love so well. CHORUS Joyous and ever loyal. Let us boost for our Old High, Let ev ' ry heart sing, Let ev ' ry voice ring, There ' s no time to grieve or sigh. It ' s ever onward, our course pursuing, May defeat ne ' er our ardor cool. But united, We will boost for her, our Old High School. Honors she has taken, On the track and with the ball. May she always rank the highest. May her colors never fall. There ' s no other that can match her. When her team is on the field. Her boys the fleetest. Her girls the sweetest. Then here ' s a cheer for her, for her who ne ' er will yield. —6- XClynn00xZ4 aZa yK . Mr. Harvey L.

Our other " big " events all occurred at the end of the year. Our Class Trip was first, on the 10th, 1 1th, and 12th of May. We had one day of I est, than the Junior-Senior Prom. Our Class Day was on May 21st. This was our last chance to " blow off our steam. " The more serious events came next, with Baccalaureate on May 23rd. The final, but most significant event, is Commencement. Now we are out on our own facing the problems of a life-time which we hope will yield success and happiness to everyone. -22— je K j: L4 ROBERT GEORGE ANDREWS 346 West Main Street, Myerstown, Pa.

After a few weeks we found it was not exactly a dream, but Miss Loose tried to make our dream come true by showing us the easiest way to learn the three R ' s. Second grade found us surveying the grounds of the hill school with Mrs. Em- erick as our guide. Our advancements toward the third grade were learning to tell time, attending the assembly programs and being in the operetta. We advanced to third grade where Miss Schell taught us more complicated things, such as the weath- er maps, keeping health charts, and also learning to snap our fingers. Miss Layser had the unfortunate task of taming us down in 4th grade, since it was leap year and the girls took advantage of the fact. In fifth grade a few of our classmates decided school would be more interesting sitting in the hall, so Miss Uhrich granted them their wishes. This was also the year we had Mrs. Frantz, and Miss Leib. Sixth grade was the half-way point in our adventure. As Mr. Suavely guided us we thought ourselves geniuses and could go our own way. Seventh grade found us a little baffled, as were our new classmates from the rural schools, in finding all the new rooms of the high school. This was the year of many new adventures for all of us, such as learning to dance, with Mr. Daniels as our instructor. We were also greeted with the two most loved expressions, " In the corner quickly! " by Mr. Mitchell, and Mr. Reed ' s " Don ' t forget your decimal point. " Mr. Reed and Mr. Mitchell remained with us as our homeroom teachers in eighth grade. With great enthusiasm we were greeted by Miss Immel and her ring and also welcomed Mr. Marquette and his memorizing of many historical events. In ninth grade we initiated Mr. Klopp, but he also made us write many essays, as " Speech is silver, silence is golden. " The fair found us selling soft drinks. Tenth grade Mr. Batdorf and Mr. Bucher chaperoned us as we strut- ted about with our new class jackets, beanies, and pennants. We also acquired the scientfic knowledge in the biology lab. Quiet a few of us chose the romance language of Latin under the guiding hand of Miss Donough. Miss Fox and Mr. Lantz supervised us in eleventh grade as we proudly dis- played our new class rings. There was quite a fad as girls were seen wearing boys ' rings. After Mr. Mitchell was through with us in the corner, he taught us how to be efficient drivers, although some of the boys forgot very quickly. This is the un- lorgettable year we sponsored the Junior-Senior Prom. The day of the prom found us worrying about a program. In twelfth grade Miss Kopp and Mr. Fake had to cope with us as we excitedly exchanged class pictures. The peculiar noises in Mrs. Fairlamb ' s class, the jokes of Mr. Fake, and Mr. Bucher ' s idea of letting us run the chemistry lab was part of having a good time. We were sales clerks for the Landis and Landis Club and our magazine selling was a minor chore. After being haunted by the thought of prepar- ing the year book we finally wrote the last pages. After studying and working for twelve years, our dream became a reality — our three day trip to New York. As graduation day approaches we stand at the threshold of a new and different life and we look back upon our twelve years as time well spent. We deeply regret having to leave the halls of dear old M. H. S. —68— Class Will Last Will and Testament of the Class of 1954, Myerstown High School, Borough ot Myerstown, County of Lebanon, and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
