Captured here in these pages are our past and present realiza- tions and fulfillments. Dear reader, as you leaf through this Myrialog remember kindly the Class of '58. Begun in 1921 our yearbook was dropped two years later till 1949, when the present Myrialog series was started. May this tradition last with the school, for the fine memories it recalls to us. We want this book to remind us of our happy times and wish to thank our patrons and all others who made this publication possible. Table of Contents ADMINISTRATION SEN IORS INFORMAL SNAPS UNDERCLASSMEN SPORTS ACTIVITIES VALENTINE DANCE Alma Mater Faithful and true-hearted, 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 eviry heart sing, Let ev'ry voice ring, There's no time to grieve or sigh. It's ever onward, our course pursuing, May defeat neier 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 ne'er will yield. 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 cornerstone of suc- cess," and "Wisdom is the birth of freedomf' I Dedication To Mrs. Helen Brightbill the Class of '58 most sincerely dedicates our Myrialog. In our Junior year she acted as class advisor and consultant to us. We have always found her friendly and willing to assist us Whenever needed. When, as Juniors, We decorated the gym Mrs. Brightbill helped us make the Senior Prom a decided success. In her regular line of duty Mrs. Brightbill is the hardworking Physical Ed. teacher and also coach of our girls' basketball team. In the past four years she has produced three girls' Championship teams. For the many ways she has aided us, for her patience, humor, and understand- ing we wish to thank her.

But this one thing we'll all remember, All the twelve years weive spent together. i Senior Memories The school year of '57-'58 found us entering the doors of Myerstown High as students for the last time in our career. We looked forward to our Senior year with hopes and fore- bodings. First on our agenda came the fair. And what a fair! There was lots to be done, but everyone pitched in and made it a success. Our Senior Play, "Keep Moving," was a hit and a lot of fun as everyone who saw or participated in it will agree. Our Landis and Landis Club goal and magazine quota were reached after much persuasion by Miss lmmel and Mr. Nitrauer. Finally after eight months of hard work tfor some of usj and waiting Cvery muchj came the big three days in the grand city of New York. From the twelfth to the fourteenth of May we enjoyed our reward for twelve years of faithful attendance. On May 23 we had Class Night and May 25 and May 26 Baccalaureate and Commencement respectively. What a time we had! Everyone was a little nervous and proud. This, our last year, had its very sad and happy times mixed with a lot of the in between days that are expected in a normal year. We leave our Alma Mater with a feeling of regret and will cherish the fine memories we leave behind us.

Ralph Derr 46. Kay Zearfoss 43 History Our climb toward higher education began in 1945 when we were put under the supervision of Miss Leah Loose, our first grade teacher. After a few days we found a great love for recess and thought ringing the bell a privilege. While reading about "Puff and Spot" we also learned how to play "trap" which became one of our favorite pastimes. P. S. Jerry Yeagley was already making a big hit with the girls. We then moved up to the little red school on the hill and met our second grade teacher, Mrs. Emerich. Later our grade was spilt and Mrs. Snavely was also given the privilege of teaching some of us. Crack-the-whip seemed very thrilling to us, especially when Kay Zear- foss was the "cracker." Miss Schell, our next teacher, stressed penmanship quite a bit and is the reason for the very neat and legible handwriting of all the seniors. "Can't you come up those steps any quieter?" was one of Mrs. Weaver's favorite expres- sions. This was the year Mr. Yeagley tried to make musicians of some of our classmates. We were now almost seniors in that little red schoolhouse and Mrs. Groff let us put our desks into groups as long as we wouldn't talk. Cally Umby, alias, "Lizard" favored us with many a solo throughout the year. Coal gardens fascinated our little brains beyond repair. Oh well! Sixth grade found us putting away childish games like boys catch girls. Mr. Snavely taught us more refined games. Basketball became a favorite. Professional chalk ducking was our pride. Guess who was Santa Claus in the operetta this year? You're right. It was our chuckling Bill Fulk. As we once again entered the halls of Myerstown high school we felt pretty small and unimportant. Mrs. Brightbill and Miss Welch served as homeroom teachers for the town students while Mr. Hoffman took charge of the Jackson township students. Students shared their first experience in making class money by selling cotton candy and candy apples at the community fair. We now felt at home in this big school and Mrs. Brightbill and Mr. Mitchell were our homeroom teachers for our eighth year in school. Gene Daub, Dick Loose, and Kay Zear- foss could usually be found out in the hall or in the corner during science class. Ninth grade began with a bang as we now held the title of Freshmen and were proud of it. Explorers Fake and Klopp took us on an expedition to Gettysburg. The climax of the trip was a water pistol battle between Eileen Keener and Mr. Fake. The lucky homeroom teachers were Mr. Batdorf and Mr. Bucher. Class jackets, gray and white, were our prize possessions during our Sophomore year. We launched a new idea in assembly programs when we presented "The Hit Parade." Of course "Straussie" had to lose her shoes when completing her part in "The Rock and Roll Waltzf' There's one in every crowd!! This was the year Cally became a professional dic- tionary carrier between our homerooms where Mrs. Jeffers and Mr. Klopp were in charge. Now promoted to Juniors under the direction of Mrs. Jeffers and Mr. Ayers as homeroom teachers, we ordered our class rings. Decorating the gym for the Valentine Dance and spon- soring the Junior-Senior Prom were quite a chore but with the help of Mrs. Brightbill, our class advisor, we came through with flying colors. The highlight of our prom "Polynesian Paradise" was the music of Saxy Schollenberger and his orchestra. Bill Fulk put on quite an act as Simon Legree, the villain, in our assembly production of "Uncle Tom's Cabin." Seniors, at last! A year of hard work was ahead of us which was to bring great rewards. Mrs. Saunders and Mr. Fake were a great deal of help although Mr. Fake could be really troublesome when he made us come in to 8:00 o'clock classes if we were even a minute late. The Senior play "Keep Moving" was a big success even though Gerald Hanley almost lost his goatee and the curtains didn't always close on time. Miss Immel led us to success in all our efforts, some of which were Landis and Landis Clubs, Magazine campaign and the fair. The Myrialog, the trip to New York, Class Night and Commencement were memorable highlights of our school careers. Class Will - 1958 We, the class of 1958, of the Myerstown High School, residents of the Borough of Myerstown, Jackson Township, County of Lebanon, State of Pennsylvania, make and declare this our last will and testament, under no pressure of the faculty or underclassmen, in the following manner: First, to the class of '59, we will our class trip. Second, to the class of '60, we leave our brains and co-operation. Third, to the class of '61, we leave our sense of humor and athletic ability. Elaine Strauss wills her intelligence to Faye Sterner. Calvin Umbenhen wills his reputation as humorist to George Brightbill. Linda Long wills her job at the Taste Good to some lucky under classman. To Dennis Brubaker, James Knapp leaves a pleasing personality. Nancy Kohl .and Peggy Beyler will their positions as school treasurers to some lucky mathe- matical Juniors. To Delmas Tevalt, Herbert Hibshman wills his height. Suzanne Pearson wills her sewing ability to Judy Schaeffer. Shirley Houtz and Elson Eiler will their quiteness to Judy Dinger and Tubby Auchenbach. Ralph Derr wills his avoirdupois to Richard Walters. To David Lessig, Mark Schwear and Miles Brandt will their black hair. Bill Fulk wills his fan club to Russell Spitler. Barbara Bingaman and Mary Hain will their mental abilities to Kathryn Stauffer. To Charlotte Hoffman, Pat Haag wills her flirting ability. Betty Shuey wills her typing ability to Bernice Brandt. Peggy Smaltz wills her true blonde hair to Joan Kohl. Gerald Hanley wills his dancing steps to Jim Longenecker. To some lucky junior, Eileen Keener leaves her position as President of Senior Tri-Hi-Y. Kay Zearfoss wills her athletic ability to Faye Ellen Krommes. Nancy Phillippy and Marilyn Mastro will their friendship to Pat Miller and Phyllis Leininger. Marilyn Yeakley and Pearl Wolfe will their trips to Schaefferstown to Pam Stechman and Elaine Feeg. Jerry Yeagley wills his good looks to Glenn Mader. Jeanette Rutter and Pat Wilson will their places in the Home Ec. Room to Shirley Fullmer and Mary Jane Houtz. Edward Swanger wills his athletic ability to David Hipp. Barbara Yordy wills her sweaters to Sandra Waltermeyer. David Grumbine wills his romantic traits to David Shenk. Kenneth Harding leaves his gracefulness to James Bird. Lloyd Nixon and James Rittle leave their trips to Landis and Landis to two prospective seniors. Gene Daub wills his good driving record to Mr. Hess. John Ernfield and Leroy Souders will their interest in school to Terry Hoffman and Mike Hibshman. Edna Brown wills her cooking ability to Doris Houtz. Lloyd Claman and Gene Lutz leave their love for girls to Skip Steltz and Terry Witter. Lucille Darkes wills her neat wardrobe to Carol Kratzer. Dick Loose wills his love for chemistry class to John Atkins. John Hess and Jonas Kreider will their musical ability to Brian Donley. Arnold Miller wills his good manners to John Whitmoyer. Jay Yeagley wills his love for typing to Bill Siverling. It is our hope that the gifts we have bestowed upon the underclassmen will be cherished by them. In Witness Whereof: We have thereunto set our hand this 23rd day of May, in the year of our Lord, 1958. Witness: Mrs. Lena B. Saunders Address: Borough of Myerstown, County of Lebanon, and State of Pennsylvania. Witness: Mr. Robert A. Hoffman Address: Borough of Myerstown, County of Lebanon, and State of Pennsylvania. Class Prophecy "For I dipped into the future, far as human eye could see, Saw the vision of the world, and all the wonder that would be." Grand opening!!

James Knapp has won the Interplanetary Peace Prize for transporting bubble gum to the planets with his newly invented "Napnik." "Twenty-eight Ways To a Delicate Giggle" the outstanding novel of 1988 was written by our own Mary Hain. Pat Wilson and Jeanette Rutter are co-owners of the "I Can Boil an Egg Studio" for prospective brides. Herbie Hibshman has just put on the market his newly devised "Schocker soccer shoes." The guarantee on these shoes was made personally by Jimmy Rittle, founder of the Tutti Fruitee Corporation. .Visiting M. H. S. again is the great trampoline artist Barbara Yordy who will attempt a triple twirl with an extra twist. Tying for first place in the National Traffic Safety Slogan Contest are John Ernfield and Leroy Souders with these slogans: "Too many ponies under a hood surely bring trouble and that is no good," and "Dragging is a little wicked, you will get a traffic ticket." Believe it or not Cheeky Brandt has finally learned to play checkers while sitting on a flagpole. "Don't mope when you can joke" is the favorite expression of Miss Nancy Phillippy on her TV show "The Dramatic Squirrel." Lucille Darkes is now top mechanic at Richard C. Loose's "Hot Rod Shop."

Cally Umbenhen is head warden at "Smack-A-Traz Reformatoryf' for naughty boys who shoot water pistols at English teachers. Pearl Wolfe and Patsy Haag are co-engineers of the newly built highway from Myerstown to Schaefferstown. The other one was badly worn. We never could understand why Pearl's car kept sliding off the road every time she got as far as Reistville. Gerald Hanley has just won the Oscar for his performance in "The Professor In the Red Flannel Negligeef' The M. C. of this annual event was that hilarious jokster Jerad Yeagley who took honors for the evening with his story of "Abe Cats." If you have never heard this story, please forget we ever mentioned it.

We are very fortunate to have two such devoted teachers to help these children who are less fortunate than we.

The Safety Patrol was organized in 1931 by Robert W. Mitchell shortly after the time when the Palmyra Lebanon County Auto Club began sponsoring school safety patrols. Myerstown Patrols accompanied by the High School Band have marched in the annual Safety Patrol Parade since 1935. Selected representatives attended the National Safety Patrol Parade at Washington, D. C., during the years 1936 to 1941. Members receive a certificate and badge on the completion of as sernester's service. Junior High Members may earn a letter. The bus trip sponsored by the police department and the faculty advisors at the close of school term is traditional with the Patrol. Points of interest visited by the Patrol were Trexler Game Farm, Hershey Police Bar- racks, Lebanon County Jail, Miniature Village, State Museum, and the State Capitol. The Patrol is proud of its record of no accidents or injuries to pupils on patrol covered corners in twenty-five years of service. 177041121 Row 1-left to right-E. Swanger, R. Loose, H. Hibshman, D.

After a shaky start with 2 losses, the Mohawks proved to be unconquerable in winning just the Leba- non County Championship and going on in P. I. A. A. play to win both the District 3 and Eastern Regional titles. Their record for the season was 11 wins, 2 losses and 1 tie.
