" There are two reasons for its publica- tion — to record the accomi)lishments and deeds of the class of ' 55 and to keep in lasting memory the pleasant associations made dur- ing our sojourn at our Alma Mater. If in years to come memories may be recalled by scanning these pages, our efforts shall not have been in vain. The first publication of a yearbook began in 1921. The tradi- tion continued for two years, then the book lapsed. The class of 1949 again published a yearbook, giving it the title, " The Myrialog. " Now, we, the class of ' 55, continue this tradition. In future years, when we have each gone oui- own way, it is hoped that this yearbook will remind them oif the grand times enjoyed during theii- stay at Myerstown High School. Dedication Wc, the class of 1955. proudly dedicate our carbook. " The Myrialog. " to Mr. Howard Klopp. whose wise counsel, pa- tience, and willingness to help us, have been a constant source of inspiration. To us and our problems he has given unsel- fishly of his time and energ and therefore shall alwa s occup a fond place in our memories. His unfailing etTorts in for- warding our education will long be re- membered. —5— Tribute We wish to pay tribute to Miss Mabel C. Immei, who so willingly gave of her time and effort to make our senior vear a success. Without her able assistance we would not have been near as fortunate in our Landis and Landis Club, Magazine sales, the Fair, and in the publication of this yearbool;. Without her hand pushing us forward we would never have been able to attain our goal, the New York trip. To her now. in order to show our ap- preciation, wc pay this tribute. Myrialog Staff Row 1— S.

Alma Mater Faithful and truc-hcarled, I-Cl us cheer our dear old High, Wc 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 evVy 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. 11 Honors she has taken. On the track and with the hall. 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 ch«er fpr her, for her who ne ' er will yield. —8— A lmmi frAtiDn —9- Mr. Harvey L.

Our other big events all occurred at the end of the year. Our Class Trip was first, on the 9th, lOth and 1 Ith of May. We had one day of rest, then the Junior-Senior Prom on the 13th. Iliis was followed by Class Day on May 20lh, This was our last day to " blow off our steam. " The more serious events came next, with Bacca- laureate on May 22nd. The final, but most signilicant event, was Commencement.

I his was to be our first day of school under the supervision of Miss Loose. During the first stop of our educational career we were taugiit the A. H. C ' s and the 1. 2. 3 " s. Wc were di ided into three reading classes, the Robins. Bluebirds and Sparrows. Our orchestra that vear was called " The Rhvthni Band. " in which wc learned ail about the triangle, tambourine, and such delicate instrimients. We used to pkr, doctor, too. Wc even had medicine, using candy hearts as pills. Wc made our second stop and were ably assisted through second grade by Mrs. I-nicrick. Here we began to get a taste of the 3R " s u nabridged. Wc began to collect milk weed pods as a class project. Miss Scliell ushered us into a beautiful but sad third grade, where wc were lauglit the long and short of it (by this we mean ilisisionl. 1} this time .leie Pearson and Dave libling were already up to nonsense. Fourth grade made us verv energetic, for this ear we had to climb steps every morning. We were finalK promoted a floor and had our own private stairway. Miss La ser taught us the multiplication tables from 1 to 10. The boys finally started taking an interest, we girls wondered if it were the lessons or the teacher ' s beautiful red hair. Remember the day Charles Miller made his debut with his squeeking clarinet. Mrs. GrolT taught us poems, and how we loved to recite them indi ' idua!ly be- fore the rest of the class. This is the year Harold Mann decided to bring flowers to Mrs. GrolT, the only catch wa s he picked them in her own backyard. Finally we reached the half-wav mark when we entered Mr. Snasely ' s room. We felt very privileged, for this year we had a piano in our room. We also learned the art of ducking erasers, which came flying our way. This was the first year we had a library. It took some of us very long to decide which book we wanted, especially when we got out of class to choose one. The bovs particularly liked health class, in the summer we played baseball outside and Mr. Snavelv was the ump. We remem- ber well the big clock and the constant ring of the telephone, which caused mLich confusit)n even among the teachers. We were also the guardians of the entire school in the form of the Safety Patrol, and exerted our authority, especially in the snowball season. Wc began a wonderful new adventure when we entered 7th grade. Miss Werner and Mr. Daniels had the diflicult job of explaining what evervthing was all about. We came to know Mr. Nitrauer quickU and learned that his word w::s law. We were quickly introduced to Mr. Mitchell and his old expression. " In the corner i|uicklv. " Eighth grade came and Mr. Daniels and Mrs. Brightbill had their troubles. Many a night we stayed after school until the entire class got quiet. The following year we acquired a title of F- eshman. We wrote essays — many essays for Mr. Klopp, such as Speech is SiUcr. Silence is Ciolden and the liistory of ihcwing gimi. Romances flourished and studies were forgotten. In tenth grade we were sporting our new class jackets, which we thciught were the greatest things in the school. We had Mr. Buchcr and Mr. Batdorf for home- room teachers. We dissected frogs, grasshoppers, and crawfish in Bioloev class. Mr. Klopp took us on a tour of Ciettysburg. The big day came and we were happily flashing around our brand new class rings. It wasn ' t long before our class rings changed hands as often as the weather, ihis year we gave the " Jr.-Sr. Prom, " our theme was, " Somewhere Over the Rain- bow. " Mr. Klopp took us on a tour of F. M. College in Lancaster. Wc also went to see an L. V. C. basketball game. Finally we reached the top. This year we made the French Fries at the fair, the girls washed their hair every day and the Home l-c girls were kept bus with the cafeteria. We had a marvelous time gathering l.andis and Landis members and selling magazine subscriptions. The P.O.D. classes took a trip to the County Court House and we visited the Lebanon Daily News Oflice. But, of course, the thing we looked forward to most came, our trip to New York. We know these memories will live in our hearts forever. —76— Class Will Last Will and Teslamcnl of the t lass of |y55.

Ihc Mohawks ll;cn joiirncycil to Wci ncrsvillc and defeated the Wcr- icrsville Kedskins h the same score they won their openinj; j:anie. 7 to 2. The Womelsdorr Lions pro ed to he a tougher opponent and the Mohawks edged them by a 5 to 4 score. With three prc-lcagiie victories on the books the Mohawks were ready to open their league with conlidence. I hey won their first league game by defeating South Lebanon 6 to 2, with steady pitching by Bill Pencil and Gene Bueher. Myerstown ' s first set back came at the hands of last year ' s league champiorvs. the Palmyra Palms, who behind very good pitching edged the Mohawks by a score of 3 to 1. Mverstown then stepped out of their league to travel to Flizabethtown where they trounced tiie Lancaster C ount lads by a score of 13 to 4. Home runs by John Ment er and Dale Fake played an important part in the victory. ' Lhe Mohawks " second defeat came at the hands of Annvillc. A pitching duel between Buehei and Bahney of Annvillc ended with a 2 to I score in favor of Ann ille who later went on to win the 19. 4 county championship. The ne l game with the Richland ( hicks turned out to be a real breather for Mycrstown with every one on the team conlribuling to a 22 to 5 victory on the Kichland held. The Mohawks played their best game when they defeated the Ncwmanstown Nlaroons by a score of . ' ! to 4. Fine pitching by Buchcr, timely hitting, and very good defensive play deter- mined the outcome of this tussle. The journey to Heidelberg proved to be successful with the Mohawks adding another game to their win column b defeating the Barons by a score of 6 to I. The bat of Firestine could not be stopped and he collected ?• hits for 4 times at bat including a triple, double and single. George Lessig received credit for the victory allowing only two hits, one going for a homerun. North Lebanon Joint invaded Mycrstown and behind good pitching by Zimmerman kept the Mohawks ' bats silent as his team mates went on to a 4 to 2 victory over the home team. Mycrstown ended its season by traveling to Cornwall only to be defeated by the Miners 2 to 1 in a very tight ball game. .Mlhough Mverstown outhit the Miners . to . ' ' behind the line pitching of Bill Fencil, good defensive play by the Miners was the deciding factor in the final outcome of this game. Bueher not only led the team with fine pitching, but also had the highest batting average of 466. followed closely by Firestine with an average of 458. Although Mycrstown did not win the County Championship, they had a successful season with 8 wins and 4 losses. The prospect for a winning team in 1955 looks good with only 3 seniors yradiiating. The boys on the team were: Dave Fbling. Conrad Youse , Gene Bueher. George Lessig, William Fencil. Franklin Fields. Marlin Umberger, Terry .Schott. Frncst Firestine. Robert An- drews. Loren Kline. Dale Fake. Kermit Hower. Gene Lessig. Peter Jeffers, Richard Wolfe, Jere Pearson. John Ment er, and Cieorge Peiffcr.

Four of the girls are seniors and will be leaving this year. Junior Varsity Cheerleaders Row 1— M. Potleiger. J. Kicca, Captain C . Sholh, B. Repperl.
