We, the class of '59, wish to present to you this treasure, our Myrialog. In
it may you share with us our dreams and fulfilments.
The first yearbook was edited at Myerstown in 1921. After two years of
publication it was discontinued. The class of '49 once again resumed the task
and named it "The Myrialogf'
We wish to continue this tradition, of gathering all our mementoes of Myers-
town High School, and present them to you, our readers.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
EVENT OF THE YEAR
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.
J oyous 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.
The Hill School, which is located on North College Street, was erected as a result of
the consolidation of the early limestone schools. The community library and the Hill School
served as our educational institutions until the erection of our present high school.
Architect, Edward Z. Scholl, and contractor, Andrew J. Fink, built our high school in
The members of the first board of directors were Dr. D. U. Wolff, George Uhrich,
Ephriam Bleistein, John Schoener, and Harry Line. We have had the following principals:
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
success," and "Wisdom is the birth of freedom."
To Miss Kathryn Dech, we the Senior Class of '59 dedicate our annual year-
book, the Myrialog.
Miss Dech has given to many pupils of our student body a finer appreciation
of music, chiefly in the vocal field. Beginning in Junior High School she made
it possible for many of us to use our leisure time and vocal talent wisely. Re-
hearsals of all musical groups Cnot forgetting the operettal, in preparation for
spring concerts, occupied most of her time-not mentioning the extra hours
that followed. In addition to this, her German classes also kept her in contact
with other students of the school.
For her helpful instruction, patience and humor we gratefully thank her.

We wish to reserve this place in our Myrialog for four people who play one of the most
important parts in our school life.
They deserve credit for the fine job they have done in heating our school and keeping
it neat and clean. Help in the future by being courteous to them at all times.
As the Class of '59, we wish to thank them for a splendid job well done.

l. Our senior class of '59,
Accomplished things quite fine.
We stuck together in time of need,
And loyalty was our creed.
We studied hard but
And now our task is
Each one will go his
had some fun.
And make his knowledge really pay.
We owe our thanks to all of you,
Our teachers, parents too.
You helped us in so many ways.
We hope to earn your praise.
The twelve school years have quickly
But all the joys will last.
The best we have we gladly give,
So all our memories will live.
To say "Farewell" is hard to do,
It makes us all feel blue.
"Farewell" to you of '59
May every class be iust as fine.
We leave you
We hope that
A better class

'I he year we all looked forward to has finally arrived: our Senior year. This was "our"
Our Senior year had just about begun when we started preparing for the Fair. This
was our last Fair as students and we made the most of it! Promptly after the Fair we began
rehearsing for the Senior Play which was presented November 20 and 21. We reached our
goals in l.andis and Landis and the magazine campaign. After several difficulties, we received
our revsard: A fabulous three-day trip to the magificent New York City from the eleventh
to the thirteenth of May. On May 22nd we had Class Night and May 24 and 25 were Bae-
calaureate and Commencement respectively.
Our last year was filled with joys and disappointments. but it was a year we shall never
forget, Wc leave M.H.S. hesitantly, because it served as a place of learning and companion-
ship with all our friends. We will cherish our memories we leave behind, and wish all the
happiness and success wc have experienced to the future graduates of Myerstown High School.

In 1947 we left the comforts of home to start our journey through school. Our first
stop was in first grade with Miss Loose and Mrs. Snavely. We were promptly divided into
three groups for our reading classes: the Robins, the Wrens, and the Bluebirds. All of us
enjoyed the privilege of ringing the bell at recess.
We made our next stop in second grade with the assistance of Mrs. Emerick and Mrs.
Snavely. Here we were required to tell what we had for breakfast every morning. Finger-
nail and handerchief inspections were daily routine occurrences.
Miss Schell and Mrs. Snavely led us into third grade where we happily welcomed a new
subject called division.
Fourth grade was a happy year for we were promoted to the second floor and had our
own private stairway. Mrs. Weaver and Mrs. Snavely helped us to put on a Columbus play
for our parents. Competition was hot and heavy on those Weekly Reader Tests.
Mrs. Groff helped us through fifth grade. We all made coal gardens as a class project.
It was this year that we had a lover's quarrel between Rodney and Brian for the affections of
Loretta Ziegler. We also worked in committees of four in our classes which in turn taught
us to work together.
Finally we reached the middle of our journey when we entered Mr. Snavely's sixth
grade. This was the year of flying chalk and erasers. They almost always found their mark.
We had a library of our own and enjoyed choosing our own books to read. We also had
a private fire escape and many of us became members of the Safety Patrol.
The next half of our journey landed us in the strange new world of seventh grade. Miss
Fox and Mr. Hoffman explained the complicated routine of this place to us. We quickly
became acquainted with Mr. Nitrauer and his faithful friend Betsy.
Mrs. Brightbill and Mrs. Shover really had their troubles with us in eighth grade and
we spent many nights after school. This year the Corn Sisters, Billy and Jan, made their
debut in our assembly.
We felt very important when we acquired the title of Freshmen. Mr. Batdorf and Mr.
Bucher were our homeroom teachers. We were all completely baffled by our new subject,
Tenth grade brings with it thoughts of class jackets. We were very proud of them and
wore them as often as possible. Mr. Gates and Mr. Henderson tried to teach us that "Silence
is Golden." Biology class was the favorite subject of all the girls, especially when we dis-
sected frogs, worms, and grasshoppers.
Our class rings came with our Junior year and some of us passed them around many
times. We were guided through this year by Miss Gudemann and Mr. Whitfield. Our class
parties included an ice hockey game at Hershey and a night of bowling. Our major project
was the Junior-Senior Prom, centering around the theme "Spanish Gardens." This year we
also acquired double vision in the form of the Steiner twins.
The Senior year was one of studies and numberless activities. In October the Fair made
us proficient cooks along the line of French Fries and instant coffee-not overlooking the
capable cooks and waitresses of the cafeteria. A very short course in dishwashing and
drying was demonstrated in the kitchen during the three days of the Fair. Our major profit
making project was Landis and Landis. Other projects pursued were magazine sales and the
Senior Class Play entitled "Great Caesar's Ghost." Two short trips by the P. O. D. classes
to the County Court House and Harrisburg were also included in the busy schedule of this
our last year. The Myrialog Staff was kept busy planning, designing and assembling material
for our annual year book. The immediate reward, looked forward to by all, was the trip
to New York. This was closely followed by Class Day, Baccalaureate and finally, Graduation
which was always our chief goal.
Now that our journey is over, we shall all start in a new direction on life's highway of
experience. We shall travel with the faith and the knowledge we have gained at Myerstown
High School, and will always keep in mind, "It matters not how long we live, but how."
Be it remembered that we, the Class of "59", or is it "69", of the Myerstown
High School, or is it the Hill School, of the County of Lebanon, and the state of
Pennsylvania, or is it the state of Cbnfusion, publish and declare this as our first,
or is it our last, will and testament hereby making null and void any writings here-
tofore made. Therefore, being of sound mind C? ?J we bequeath:
First to the Class of "60", our class trip to New York and to Harrisburg.
Second to the Class of "6l", our variety of musical talent.

Signed, sealed, published, and declared as the will of the Class of "59", we have sub-
scribed our names as witnesses thereto:
Ruth E. Jeffers, witness
Donald J. Kugle, witness
As we look into the future to see the jobs and professions which we will be fulfilling in
I979. we see that:
Lee Blouch, Perry Como's understudy, has just opened Blouch's Tint Hair Salon -for
discriminating women. Madam Troutman, who just returned from visiting her relatives

Basketball was first played in the county in the form of a Tri-Hi-Y league. When
Miss Werner came in 1948, the county basketball league was organized.
in the 1950-51 season the county league was started. Since that time our girls have
won four championships under the leadership of Mrs. Brightbillg one in 1952-53 season, the
1954-55 season, the 1955-56 season, and the 1956-57 season.

building up. Our team was in third place this year.

The Senior Tri-Hi-Y is a Christian organization composed of senior high girls. Its
membership at present is 85 students.
lt was organized in the school year of 1942-43 under Miss Betty Anne Rutherford's
leadership. The following year with the help of Miss Esther Zug, they organized and coached
a Tri-Hi-Y basketball team. This remained in effect until the board hired a Physical Educa-
tion teacher, who then organized a high school team.
ln February of 1944, the big event of now and then was held, the first Valentine dance.
In this year Miss Rutherford left Myerstown and Miss Zug assumed full duties as advisor.
When in 1950-51, Mrs. Helen Brightbill joined the faculty as Physical Education teacher,
she assisted Miss Zug.
Miss Francene Swope became the leader when Miss Zug resigned in 1951-52. In 1053-54,
Miss Welch took over leadership duties. ln 1955-56, Mrs. Merrit Jeffers became leader and
in 1956-57, Mrs. Lena Saunders joined as assistant advisor. They are at present our advisors.
Weekly meetings are held and are opened with a devotional period, followed by discus-
sions and program as planned by the state-wide organization.
Some activities of the club during the year are the Christmas Pageant, caroling through
the halls at Christmas, holding services at the Old Folks' Home, Christmas parties for the
first grade, the Retarded class. and finally the Valentine Dance.

MYERSTOWN COMMUNITY FAIR
I934 Lebanon County, Pa. 1958
The Myerstown Community Fair started in 1934 and was discontinued during the war
The Annual Community Fair directors were as follows: President, Charles L. Moyerg
Vice President. Robert F. Smith: Secretary, Earl J. Brubaker: Treasurer, Edgar Landis.
These first directors gave our Fair an excellent beginning.
The purpose of this community venture. in a broad sense, is to promote the interests
of Agriculture. Home Making. and Community Commerce: and to effect a spirit of good-will
and cooperation between the various realms of community interest. In a more specific way,
the Myerstown Community Fair seeks to perform many educational functions. lt developes
rural. town and school leadership by actual cooperation in the conduct of the Fair and
educates by providing best products to be viewed bv neople of the community.
Each year the privilege of exhibiting products at the Fair is extended to all thc patrons
in Myerstown and anyone else in Lebanon County.
The officers of the Community Fair in 1958 were the following: President, Arthur
Alspachg Vice President. Harvey Nitrauerg Treasurer, Larry Mentzer: Secretary, John Sherman.
The grades from seventh to twelfth each are given a specific item of food to sell at the
Fair. ln this way the grades earn money for their class treasuries. Regular meals are
served in the cafeteria provided by the senior class.
In l958 the Myerstown Community Fair was the only fair conducted in Lebanon
County and enlisted the cooperation of the people of the entire county to aid in making
this institution one of state wide recognition. lt is a three-day affair, free to the public,
featuring entertainment. athletics. educational exhibits and commercial exhibits, without
objectionable features. ln previous years there were over one-thousand exhibitorsg that made
over three-thousand entries in various departments of the products that they exhibited. The
commercial exhibitors displayed their products under the large tents.
