1 4. we! ,wif 2 V., mr, NV 1 X 1 L- l Foreword In years to come the pages of this Myrialog will inspire the class of '57 to live again the treasured days - gay, sad, average or super-special days that made up a wonderful high school career. Seniors of Myerstown High produced the first year book in 1921, and the two succeeding classes continued the adventure. Then there was none until 1949 when Seniors called their annual the "Myrialog.'l This custom has taken root, and the staff hopes this edition is truly bringing it to flower. May it be a beautiful memento of busy days at M.H.S. This book is made possible, not only through the efforts of the staff, but also through the cooperation and kindness of many other people. We wish to thank our Principal and the entire faculty for the assistance rendered in preparing this book. Our efforts would have been useless without the patrons of this annual. Finally, we thank the Church Center Press for the fine work it has done. Our sincere gratitude and appreciation to all these many fine people. We hope this 1957 Myrialog will be enjoyed by everyone. As the steps of progress march on, we will still hold on to our memories and look back upon them as stepping stones of our lives. Table of Contents ADMINISTRATION SENIORS INFORMAL SNAPS UNDERCLASSMEN SPORTS ACTIVITIES VALENTINE DANCE Alma Mater Faithful and true-hearted, Let us cheer our dear old I-ligh, 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 herefs 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. II 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 neier will yield. Our School History As the result of the consolidation of the early limestone schools, the Hill School on North College Street was erected in 1885. The community library, once our high school, and the Hill School served as our town's educational institution until the erection of our present high school. Our high school has been standing since 1915 and compliments greatly the work of its architect, Edward Z. Scholl, and its contractor, Andrew J. Fink. Dr. D. U. Wolff, George Uhrich, Ephriam Bleistein, John Schoener, and Harry Line were members of the first board of directors. We have had the following principals as supervisors of the school: J. J. Strahl, Ralph Davenport, Chester Hartzler, Henry Hollinger, Walter Richter, John Auld, and presently Harvey L. Nitrauer. Engravings on the cornerstones of our school are: "Education is the COYIICI- stone of successj' and "Wisdom is the birth of freedom." School Colors - BLACK AND GOLD Dedication We, the class of 1957, grateful to him for his many services, dedicate Your yearbook, 'The Myrialogi' to Mr. Dwight C. Fake. During our high school years, it was our pleasure to have him as our history, civics, and problems of democracy teacher. During our Senior Year, he served as one of our homeroom teachers. Many times his wise counseling, willingness to help, patience, cooperation, dynamic personality, and abund- ant sense of humor were a source of inspiration to us. His ceaseless strivings to forward our education will be memories cherished by our class. Myrialoq Staff lst Row-J. Bird. W. Hollinger. N. Umbenhen. N, Fink. F. Fulk. J. Wagner, J. Yeakley. E.

Keeping the schools neat and clean is their job. It would be a help to them if all of us were to be more courteous and not throw paper on the floor or paste gum under our desks. We are taking time now to thank these people for all they've done for us. Let's aid and respect them in the future. The Senior Class of 1957 C 1.135 Sona .. ,..k M, F Ff ?'0'fF? F SEFFPS FF E' EWU?

Our Senior Year Memoirs This year has found us struggling furiously for our once in a lifetime thrill, the three days in seventh heaven. We had a swell time selling coffee, french fries and needling Mr. Fake, and Miss Immel at the Myerstown Community Fair. Our girls served dutifully at the cafeteria with our enlisted men serving K.P. Our next big moneymaking project on the agenda was the production, "Thank You, Mr. Parker." From the beginning of the year until Christmas we wandered aimlessly about and occasionally collected for Landis and Landis. Our salesmanship training was further advanced with our magazine sales which turned into a yery successful project. Finally after weeks of hard work and anticipation we received our hair sizzling reward. We went to New York May 13th and came back the 15th, spending three of the most exciting days of our lives in that great metropolis. We came back intact but tired. Our next performance was to be May 24, when we held Class Day. What a day it was! There was excitement galore but it was nothing compared to Baccalaureate and Commencement. After all these experiences, happy and sad, we at last had our high school education. We will shortly be answering the roll call of life.

Well, in 1944 this drastic thing happened to us. One day we found ourselves in a school room in charge of a very nice lady named Miss Loose. As the days progressed and we adjusted ourselves to our new surroundings, we found this to be better than spending a whole day at home. While in first grade we learned to read, print and do simple addition and subtraction. We also spent many enjoyable moments playing "Penny Penny," and participating in the Rhythm Band. But we found we enjoyed playing "Old Mammy Witch, Fell in a Ditch" most of all. Then one day we found ourselves climbing a steep hill to reach the big red building at the top. We were now second-graders. We were told by Mrs. Emerick that we were here to conquer the 3R's, and we immediately started the struggle. On the last day of school Janet Yeakley invited all of us, much to our surprise, to bring her birthday presents up to her house. In third grade we learned that Nancy Fink was allergic to the smell of burning leaves and had to leave Miss Schell's pleasant classroom, full of progress charts, every afternoon when the leaves were burned. By the time we reached fourth grade, the boys forgot that they hated girls, and as a result we gave Mrs. Weaver quite a hard time. We also became quite accustomed to finger- nail inspections. Mrs. Groff welcomed us into fifth grade. Here we had our first experience with a library and weather maps. Much to our disappointment we lost Nancy Umbenhen's talents wh,le she fought off rheumatic fever. This year we found we had much talent within our class. Loretta and Carole enjoyed singing "lf I Knew You Were Coming, l'd Have Baked a Cake." Finally we reached the top-sixth grade. We had many new experiences this year, too. We used the fire escape, had Mr. Snavely for our teacher, and learned to duck when we saw an eraser or piece of chalk coming in our direction. This year we really proved we had talent. We formed the Drama Club andtgave our own original productions for everyone's enjoyment. Remember the time Nancy Fink danced to "Goofus" in her pink evening gown? In the year 1951, we entered the halls of M.H.S. wide-eyed and optimistic. We soon became adjusted to sitting patiently for 50 minutes and then running wildly through the halls to our next class. This continued for a whole year, but, once in eighth grade we settled down and began the beginning of a long five year journey. By the time we entered ninth grade we were well adjusted to the many activities of High School life. We were very proud of the title of Freshman which was bestowed upon us, and frowned with disgust when referred to as ninth-graders. In our Sophomore year we were busy choosing class colors and class jackets. We were so proud of those fire-engine red and white corduroy jackets that we wore them all day in school. We also spent many pleasant hours dissecting crayfish in biology class. All this passed quickly and we soon found ourselves in the role of Juniors. This year we chose class rings. They were our pride and joy. The one big goal we had as Juniors was sponsoring the fabulous Prom for the Seniors. The theme for our Prom was 'Stairway to the Stars." And now in our Senior Year we became salesmen to earn our way to New York City. By selling magazines, running a Landis and Landis Club, and giving a two-night production of "Thank You, Mr. Parker," we finally reached our goal. Now that graduation day is upon us we remember all the troubles, and struggles of High School, but we must remember all the joys and friendships we acquired during our school days. As our first goal is reached, we say "farewell" and leave our Alma Mater dear. Class Will 1957 We, the class of 1957, residents of the Borough of Myerstown and Jackson Township, being of age to graduate and of sound and disposing mind and memory, and not acting under duress, menace, fraud, or influence of the faculty or underclassmen, do make, publish, and declare this our last will and testament, in the manner following, to wit: First, to the class of '58 we will our class trip and promptness for class. Second, to the class of '59 we leave our deep concern for one another. Third, to the class of '60 we leave our good looks and interest in school. Kenny Umberger, Clarence Sattazahn, and Kenny Brown will their ability to hunt "Elbid- ridges" to Gerald Hanley. Mareeta Demmy wills her sleek page-boy to Loretta Yeiser.

Charlotte Williams and Joanne Stauffer will their deep interest in the opposite sex to Judy Dinger. Stewart Hower wills his long vacations from school to Skippy Steltz. Janet Wagner wills her "big cars" to Jimmy Knapp. Tom Brown wills his deep interest in English class to Brian Donley. Nancy Gettle and Dolores Kieffer will their job at the Twin-Kiss to Pam Stechman. Martin Wenzler wills his love for shorthand to Bobby Prescott. Judy Ficca wills her attractive wavy hair to Judy Mosser. Richard Wolfe wills his love for study halls to Donald Miller. Myrtle Boyer and Peggy Brown will their top-typing speeds to Herbie Hibschman. Peter Jeffers wills his instrumental ability to Dickie Bicksler. Rachel Sanger wills her promptness to Susie Pearson. Carl Brown wills his 'thot car" to Russel Spitler. Helen Kreiser wills her gracefulness to Sally Watson. Donald Dubble wills his sex appeal to Arnold Miller. Doris Sterner and Janet Yeakley will their letter writing habit to Anita Yeakley. Carl Heffelfinger wills his cigarettes to Ralph Derr. Barbara Buck wills her pet peeve, teachers, to Russell Lausch. Tom Kershner leaves his scientific interests to Dickie Loose. Winnie Hollinger wills her job as school treasurer to some lucky junior. Marie Mays and Shirley Trautman will their roller skating talent to Bernice Brandt. Pauline Long wills her sewing technique to Shirley Hamish. John Wenger wills his driving skill to Mr. Hess. Anna Mae Phillippy wills her well-recognized giggle to Faye Sterner. It is our sincere wish that the underclassmen appreciate these gifts that we have bestowed upon them. In Witness Whereof: We have hereunto set our hand this 27th day of May, in the year of our Lord, 1957. Witness: Mrs. Russel Brightbill. Address: Borough of Myerstown, County of Lebanon, and State of Pennsyl- vania. Witness: Dwight C. Fake. Address: Borough of Myerstown, County of Lebanon, and State of Pennsyl- vania. Senior Class Prophecy The footsteps of time take us to the year 1977 and we find that the Class of 1957 has come a long way since its graduation from Myerstown High School. Our classmates are fill- ing these unusual positions and professions: As we enter town we find Janet Schell has just been named as the first woman Chief of Police. Her favorite hangout is the "Soda Less Soda Fountain" owned by Dorothy Rittle and Anne Mae Phillippy. l Donald Nixon is busy setting up bowling pins at the "Knock 'Em Dead Bowling Alley. His chief customers are Tom Brown and Carl Heffelfmger. l Have you read "Frog Hollow News" published by Nancy Fink and Faye Fulk? Elaine Bashore and Myrtle Boyer are lzept busy delivering this daily paper on their Mickey Mouse tricycles. Peggy Brown has opened her "Free for All Who Survive Gymnasium." Her numerous victims are dragged to Ronnie Krall's "Kill Me Quick Hospital." Millie Brubaker is his head pill peddler. Pete Jeffers is a trick professor at "Hop, Skip, and Jump Kindergarten" located at Frog Hollow. Another professor, Tom Kershner, has invented a flying saucer which can travel to the moon in 367-l!60 seconds. His understudies are Charlotte Williams and Joanne Stauffer. One of the largest business establishments is the "You Mess 'Em We Press 'Em Dy1Dee Service" operated by Dolores Kieffer, her main customers are Betty Rutter Hixenhelser, Shirley Fake Smith, and Ruth Heller Snyder. Stewart Hower is operating his "Nut Cracker Race Track." Busy terrorizing the many spectators are daredevils, Wolfe, Dubble, and Hunsicker, just back from the Mt. Zion 500. Moody's Junk Yard employee, John Bird, has just invented a new wrinkle resistant metal to be used on all driver training cars. He is now enjoying a vacation at the Millardsville Quarry on his 252,000 bonus. Allen Miller, that tall dark, handsome, dashing, masculine, lovable, heartbreaking actor from Elbow Creek is appearing at the premiere showing of his first movie, "The Hot Rod and the Cop." As we wander back into our Alma Mater we find John Wenger in the chemistry lab still trying to prove that fire burns. Jon Swanger is busy taking curves out of the Millardsville Road. He wants to be sure that Carl Brown won't try to drive in the quarry again. As you wander down to Buffy's you will find Kenny Brown running the auction. His chief auctioneer, Rachel Sanger, can be heard at the outskirts of Weavertown. Mike Honker has just had his first case, Kreiser vs. Achey. Helen claimed that Stan, the painful dentist, pinched her tongue in the process of getting rid of a tooth. Pauline Long was the only witness. Loretta Mader has her own beauty salon with many little Maders trying to help. The scalp scrubber, Mareeta Demmy, has just finished torturing her first victim. We hear she can really rub hard. Did you ever see the new dance studio in Chicago? lf you haven't you are really missing something. Barbara Buck is the instructor with her best pupil, Audrey Sattazahn, making daily T.V. appearances. Janet Wagner has just been named Imperial Salesman of the year. She has done so by selling an Imperial to each of her classmates. Multi-millionaires, Stechman and Wenzler have purchased two apiece. They attained their wealth by pressing shirts for the Myerstown High School faculty. The rodeo has just come to town. Judy Ficca is the number one horse lady of the year. Clarence Sattazahn is kept busy keeping the horses in shape for the rodeo. Winnie Hollinger is now the only minister's wife to be a marriage counselor. Her only problems are, Janet Yeakley and Doris Sterner because they can't join the army. Their main protest is, "We're sick of writing letters." Nancy Umbenhen is now appearing in her first opera as a metropolitan star. The name of the opera 1s, "My Dame's Cuckoo." As we turn on our T.V. sets we see .the famous roller derby in progress. Champions, Gettle, Trautman, and Mays at present with two broken arms, make this exciting since they all hold first place records. Carole Sholly is really rolling in.the money. She is now sketching for McCall's pattern company. Take a look at one sometime and notice the great work she's doing. After all these steps your shoes must be rather dirty. How about a shoeshine at the "Super Duper Shoeshine Shop" operated by Carl Zellers and Kenny Umberger. They use a new ma- chine which shines shoes like old in one minute. Cmntz.

Since that time our girls have won four championships under the leadership of Mrs. Brightbill. ln the 1952-53 season, the 1954-55 season, the 1955-56 season and this year, with the full co-operation of the team, Coach Brightbill had another championship team. Due to the skill and agility of the team they became the undefeated team of the county. Thus it was that our girls "did it again."

Our girls never seem to lose faith in themselves and always have lots of zip and energy. We topped the record of last year by winning 1 game and tying 7. This year we had a team of Seniors with the exception of the "goalie". We all wish the Hockey Team "lots of luck" next season. SCHEDULE AND SCORES Myers. Opp. Myers.
