I a - mug PRESENTING THE 1962 MYRIALCDG FOREWORD We, the Class of 1962, present to you the last publication of the Myrialog- a treasure of photographs and information to remind you of the school and its activities, as edited by the Myrialog Staff. I We, the seniors, have aimed to preserve all the memories of our days at Myers- town High School and all the wonderful times we had working together. After twelve years of work and fun, we have reached our goal. We present this yearbook to you, the students who will be entering the new school, and hope you will have a yearbook which will enable you to relive your school days in the Elco School. TABLE OF CONTENTS ADMINISTRATION SENIORS 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 glady tell, Her colors streaming, Glad faces beaming, So here's a cheer for her that we all love so well. Chorus 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. 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 The Hill School, which is located on North College Street, was erected as a result of the consolidation of the original limestone school. The Infirmary 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 1915. The members of the first board of directors were Dr. D. U. Wolff, George Uhrich, Ephraim Bleistein, John Schoener, and Harry Kline. We have had the following principals: J. J. Strahl, Ralph Davenport, Chester Hartzler, Henry Hollinger, Walter Richter, John Auld, Harvey L. Nitrauer, and presently Walter W. Wertz. Engravings on the cornerstones of our school are: "Education is the cornerstone of suc- cess," and "Wisdom is the birth of freedom." DEDICATION We, the Class of 1962, proudly and sincerely dedicate our yearbook, the "Myrialog", to those staff members of the past who began and continued publishing facts, information, pictures and other interesting data relative to the school. We do not overlook the untiring efforts of various individuals who assisted us, and the patrons who financially aided us in this project. May all the Myrialogs of the past and the present one be pleasant memories to recall in the future. TRIBUTE We pay tribute to the following faculty members, Miss Immel, Mrs. Saunders, Mrs. Hartung, Mr. McNeal, Mr. Fake, and Mr. Kugle who have counseled, assisted, and urged us on to finality. Throughout our Senior year they have encouraged us to greater responsibility and reminded us not to "squander time for that is what life is made of." CB.

Driver Training The Driver Training program was started in the school year of 1939-1940 with twenty-four members in the class. Today it is under the able leadership of Mr. Earl Hess. DRIVER TRAINING CAR Mr, Hess, Jane Sell, Shirley Reber. Truani Officers HERMAN HAAG RUSSELL BORDER-Chief of Police POLICE BEGINNING OF EDUCATION IN OUR COMMUNITY Education dates back to the first settlers of the Myerstown region, for they and their ideas laid the foundation for the schools of yesterday and today. As they made their homes in the rich valley, the German settlers brought with them from Europe the idea of church schools. This idea prevailed until 1767 when the non-parochial school system began. In this year Simon Bassler, and John Meyer provided for the erection of a long, low school building of logs. It was located at Main and Goodwill Streets and accommodated children within a five mile radius. It was not until 1804 that the German School was built just west of the Lutheran Church. This school was managed by the Reformed and Lutheran Churches from which each had a trustee to do their managing. The next school to be constructed was a log structure founded in 1820 on the present site of Thomas W. Batdorf's Memorial Studio. In 1845 the first school tax was levied in acceptance of the public school law. Eight schools were erected throughout the town, of which seven are still standing but used as homes. These schools convened for only two or three months a year. The erection of those eight schools marked a definite advancement, for in addition to the three R's the following subjects were added: grammer, geography, history, physiology, and English. The consolidation of the early schools resulted in the erection of the presently known Hill School building on College Street in 1885. In 1895 on Railroad Street a high school was built which now is used for a rest home. The final educational institution is the present high school which was built in 1915. This building is now under the direction of Mr. Wertz, supervising principal. The first yearbook was edited in 1921 by the senior class and was re-published by the senior classes of the following two years. The Myrialog, as it came to be known, was resumed in 1949. Since this time a Myrialog has been published each year. It is the policy to dedicate the yearbook to a faculty member who has been of great help to the senior class. CThis issue is the last Myrialog for a Myerstown Classj.

Projects must be persued in order to financially enable us to attain our goals in this our final year. We became salesmen through the Berger Plan early in September. At the same time we canvassed the town for subscribers on the magazine campaign. The Class Play took many weeks of preparationg this being followed with staff appointers for the issuing of the Myrialog. Our trip to New York we our eagerly anticipating with a great deal of pleasure. Then the serious days of Baccalaureate, Class Night, and finally Commencement on May 31. PRESIDENT . . . .

Here Miss Loose tried to give us a start in formal education. We showed off our musical skills in the rhythm band and Cdue to an unfortunate incidentj lost our big base drum-remember Kathryn Myer regurgitated. The following year we migrated to the school on the hill. Mrs. Emerick taught us to eat the right thing for breakfast, and we became members of the Cardinal and Bluebird Breakfast Clubs. Even the walk down to Main Street seemed several miles long. Those were the days we read about Alice, Jerry, and Jip, and were divided into classes according to our reading ability. During our third year, taught by Miss Schell, we became skip-rope enthusiasts. This year we were proudest of our prize possession, our huge paper-mache elephant, which our own little hands had designed. The two most thrilling events of the year were: Little Oscar arriving in his hot dog truck, and our visit to the Shrine Circus at Harrisburg-recall how the huge monkey came and visited the audience. Too bad it didn't come near us. Our fourth grade, with our own lockers, was spent on the second floor of the hill school under the supervision of Mrs. Weaver. Marion Schnoke, from Mt. Aetna, joined our class at this time. Who had the neatest arithmetic workbook and handwriting in the fourth grade? Nobody else but Kathrine Keener. Yes, this was a memorable year for we made our first public appearance in two plays: "William Penn and the Indians" and "A Good America," which were amusingly interrupted by the fact that Connie Kline had stage fright-her mother washnotlpresent. Naturally we played the traditional games of girls catch boys and boys catc git s. It was in the fifth grade that Mrs. Snavely took us into her tender loving care? ? ? We learned the meaning of perseverance and how to do the tongue test. Remember this, seniors? It was to make sure your teeth were clean. Square dancing became the current rage, our favorite being "Picking Up Paw-paws." Competition was hot and heavy on weekly reader tests-high scorers were Larry Forry and Susie Bordner. This year the girls became great baseball lovers--remember our Casey at the bat-yes, it was Mary Schoener. We were now the "upperclassmen" of the Hill School with Mr. Snavely in complete control. More than once we came home from school looking like erasers. We got into the routine of coming in early to do over our "do overs," especially arithmetic. This was the year we were introduced to a new subject "boys" by none other than Ann Strauss. As we entered M. H. S., Mr. Hoffman and Mr. Fabel guided us through the halls. As we struggled to find the right class rooms, the halls of M. H. S. became a lot noisier. Our class was greatly enlarged by newcomers from Jackson Township which increased our total to seventy-three. Mr. Gates, our famous English teacher, spent countless hours in the shop after school designing an unbreakable paddle for Mike Lebo. Also during English classes our boys acquired a steady aim with a water pistol, and we learned to cough and drop books on time-remember the time we had to write five chapters of our English book because we all coughed at two o'clock. Miss Fanelli and Mr. Ayers were our homeroom teachers during the ninth grade. It's a miracle the boys did not get ptomaine poisoning seventh periods due to the delicious C?j cake smuggled to them from Home Ec. class. We couldn't count the number of essays written for Mr. Ayers on chewing gum and talking. Betty Mauser, from South Lebanon, joined the class at this time. Our theme song became "A Capital Ship," while our favorite piano imitation was the "Anvil Chorus." The most outstanding event of the year was our trip to Gettysburg with Mr. Kugle setting a track-like pace. Tenth grade came, giving us the honored title of sophomores. Our pride and joy was our baby blue charcoal grey class jackets. Our natural acting abilities were portrayed in "Comin' Round the Mountain," with Ann, Fred, Wooly, and Marian Helder making their debut. Biology classes, which were especially pleasant for the girls, were spent disecting worms, cray- fish, and frogs. Donna Scipioni, Charlotte Eckenroth, and Jerry Reed, three light heads fwe mean hairj, joined our class. Yes, it happened to us. Donna and Catherine arrived at Hershey Stadium after the first quarter of the hockey game,-why? They missed the bus. How inter- esting l??J our English classes became due to Mr. Kugle's inspiring C??J lectures featuring Charles Van Doren, Henry Steele Commager, as well as Franklin and Marshall College. Mr. Whitfield and Miss Fanelli were our homeroom teachers that year. Eleventh grade appeared and with it came geometry, German, and bookkeeping. The arrival of our shiny new class rings had us all beaming. The usual pattern followed-fresh- man and sophomore girls were soon wearing junior class rings. Mr. Kugle was confronted with many major, as well as minor problems in our homeroom. Mr. Hess taught us how to be efficient drivers, although some of the boys forgot quickly. The highlight of this year was a beautiful evening spent entertaining the seniors at the "Mardi Gras." We labored many hours decorating for this event under the careful supervision of Mrs. Brightbill. We had our trials and tribulations. Seniors at last! A busy year of hard work was ahead of us which was to bring great rewards. Mr. Fake, having no respect for the dignity of seniors, forced many of us to attend eight o'clock classes. The reason for these early classes was tardiness-and who do you sup- pose were charter members?-Lutzie, Penny, and Donna. The first three months of our senior year were devoted chiefly to three major projects: The Berger Club, the magazine campaign, and the senior class play, "Terror in the Suburbs." Being a murder mystery we uncovered new talent and had two nights of howling success. The staff for the annual publication of the Myrialog was chosen in October and work began within a few weeks. While I am writing this the completion is within view. Tireless hours by some members of the staff, and their able advisor Miss Immel, in order to secure information, in research, in designing, in class polls, in hours of photographing classes, as well as class officers -plus many more details necessary in the editing of a yearbook took up our time. Another customary and annual highlight of the senior year is the Valentine Dance sponsored by the Sr. Tri-Hi-Y. The memory is a beautiful, but unfortunately, short one-one night and it is all over. Remaining, however, are four more months which will be filled with such activities as field trips in P. O. D. to court, and the jail. Tentative plans to New York are in the makingg Class Day activities and Baccalaureate to be planned in the future. Twelve years in school life has past and gone-good days, bad days, long days, short days, busy days, loafing days, new friends, a sense of responsibility, and plans made by many in terms of the future. These are the memories of our school life. CLASS WILL The Last Will and Testament of the Class of 1962, Myerstown High School, Lebanon County, Pennsylvania. Be it known by all those present, that we, the Class of 1962, being of sound minds, stable characters, the usual mentalities, and ofttimes first class prevaricators, do make and publish this our first and last Will and Testament.

In Witness Whereof: We have hereunto set our hand this 25th day of May, in the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and sixty-two. Dwight C. Fake, Witness Peter Hottenstein, Witness CLASS PROPHECY "Time-a-vac" a mechanical brain that has been fed detailed information on the Senior Class of 1962 has provided us with the following information of that year twenty years from now. The year is, 1982. Susie Bordner is head secretary at the Hopeless Book Publishing Company, Inc. located on Satellite One. Their slogan is "If you can write it we can sell it." Marion Schnoke and Nancy Hower, assistant typists, are having trouble handling the Martian transcripts. Jim Yiengst has opened the "Happy Hoppy Horse" Riding Stable. His most frequent customer is Millionaire Flying Haak who owns and operates an airport. Jim, however, has trouble keeping the happy horses from hopping and has Catherine Schworer, part owner of the stable on de-enargizing their diet. Artist Charlotte Eckenroth has opened a spacious art studio which deals with the draw- ings of space radiation forms which are invisible. Nurse Marian Helder is working at the Live Long Hospital. Her special job is to take care of the accident cases that come in from Mars and Jupiter. A most frequent patient is Mark Gibble who is the test pilot for the Z-7296 3116 Rocket. Connie Kline's Dietetic Food Stores are going to merge with Thomas Christman's O 8a P Stores to form the largest chain of stores in the universe. On Luna Tuny Vision we see that great bowling star John Nevius who has 623W per- fect games to his credit. He is now enroute to compete with the moon singles champion. Fighting for our Solar System are Robert Wengert and Larry Forry. Working for the F. B. I. and investigating invasions of flying saucers, they have received silver matching cup and saucers. Heard for the first time anywhere this year, the new singing star Herb Miller who has sold a million copies of a recording of the "class song of '62." Marilyn Lindermuth and Donna Scipioni have opened the "More Beauty, Less Weight" shop. This is a beauty and reducing salon on the planet, Amos. Nurse Betty Neiswender has recently joined the firm to help give revival pills to persons who collapse from exhaustion or surprise. Richard Weirich is top salesman for the VO Spherical Wig Company. His product guarantees hair that will last a lifetime and maybe even longer. Mary Schoener has worked her way up to the position of head designer for the House of Christian Schiors. Mary's design called the "Half Moon", modeled in the Spring by Jean- nette Emfield, won recognition as the most unusual design. Penny Honker, lady tycoon, is President of the manufacturing company for Peppy Panta- lope Pills. Lester Gettle has the job of guarding the gold door to the room that holds the secret of how the pantalope pills have acquired their peppiness. Nancy Boyer and Nancy Oberholtzer are at the Universal Fair this year to compete for top honors of Miss Giggle Box of 1982. Ron Garloff has taken time off from teaching gym classes at "Falling Stars Space School" to judge the contest. By the way the "Falling Star Space School" is located half way between Satellite 7 81 8, and is Kathrine Keener's private un- finishing school for space cadettes. In the sport's world we find coach Gene Haag of the Tiros playing the championship game against coach Bicksler's Nimbus champions with Recovery Hal assisting along medical lines. Marlin Daub has recently opened his new missle center on Aeros, employing Larry Klick to count asteroids. Gladys Shaeffer, Secretary for the Under-Secretary to the Under-Secretary of the Secretary of the Fuel Development, has written a letter to Linda Feeg selling her half of Asteroid 47.
