E 2 ENTRANCE TO THE PENN-BERNVILLE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL enn- errwi e .SZ 00 A When we trace the development of .our school system, we see the effects of evolution in education. Until 1949 Penn Township and Bernville Borough operated separate school districts. At this time the citizens approved a Union School District. In 1952 the ele- mentary building you see above was opened for use. In 1954 the present school system was organized. Now we are known as the Penn-Bernville Center of the Tulpehocken Area Joint School System. This system is comprised of Bethel Township, Jefferson Township, Penn-Bernville Union, and the Tulpehocken Township school districts. Included in the responsibilities of the Board, which meets the second Thursday of the month, are the planning of the school program for the entire system and the exe- cuting of the administrative powers of the Jointure. The odicers, one of whom represents each district, are: president, George R. Spannuth, Bethel Township, vice-president, Alvin J. Knoll, Tulpehocken Township, secretary, Mrs. Mae R. Streaker, Penn-Bernville Union 5 and treasurer, Floyd L. Koenig, Jefferson Township. Also attending the Joint Board meetings are representatives of the Office of the Coun- ty Superintendent of Schools of Berks County as well as Harry E. Ebling, supervising prin- cipalg Walter A. Rohrbach, high school prin- cipalg Henry S. Ensminger, principal of Mt. Aetna School, and Eugene R. Sweigart, prin- cipal of Rehrersburg School. l3 Hg L Beawvsll, PeNNA 5 1435 f 195 TV HN PENN-anRNvH.LE HIGH SCHOOL O ENNAIXI L :f m -.-. ,. Qz?fW"3f" !9'f" ' A' I ' ' " ff 'd2'S2f4T?f'-ff-'fi' ba . .

Because Pennsylvania Route 83 passes our school, we are, in this instance, Channel 83. We have adopted the titles of some of our favorite programs and through them on our own P-BHS-TV, Channel 83, you will View the pupils, in classes, activities, and sports programs, building foundations which will contribute to their success in the future. Just as a television set frequently depicts the past, so we trust that the PENNANT will bring back pleasant memories at Penn-Bernville High School. 'ki'ir'k'k 1954 PENNANT Award First Place Certificate Columbia Scholastic Press Association Columbia University New York City, New York Two libeckcafion i l Mr. George M. Sell The nature of this volume of the PENNANT calls for a dedicatee who repre- sents the ideals of this publication, which attempts to portray mainly intimacy, frankness, simplicity, and practicality. Truly typical of the spirit which prevails in the classroom and of the spirit which this, the scientific PENNANT, endeavors to convey is our respected teacher and genial friend, Mr. George M. Sell, instructor of science and mathematics. In three brief years he has taught his pupils the value of self-respect and respect for others as Well. His pupils will never forget the inter- esting projects they undertook With his guidance. To him this 1955 PENNANT is sincerely dedicated. Three ZLL of Confenffi THE GUIDING LIGHT .........

We wish available to us at our school. to express our thanks and appreciation for To the Class of 1955: T When you asked for my contribution to the 1955 PENN- ANT, my first thought was that the time is fast approaching when you will cherish one of an American's most prized posses- sions, a High School Diploma. It is not only a certificate of accomplishment or a stepping stone to future achievement but also a priceless heritage symbolizing America's faith in free public education as a foundation of our way of life. Many changes have taken place in your high school since you entered in seventh grade. That was my first year as your principal and also the first year for the new Penn-Bernville Union District. It is a part of the larger Tulpehocken Joint System. You have seen the erection of a new elementary build- ing. And an extensive modernization of the high school build- ing. You have experienced the beginning of new courses and subjects so that your school has now qualified for re-classification by the Department of Public Instruction as a six-year junior- senior high school. You have learned to know and work with quite a number of new instructors. Thus your high school experiences have reflected constantly changing conditions in the world all around us. You have learned, as all of us must, to live and work in this changing world. Congratulations on your 1955 PENNANT. This volume seems to be a symbol of your motto, "Our Aim-Success, Our Hope-To VVin". For the faculty, the directors, and myself I want to say that We, too, hope you will win. fzfwfgrzz PRINCIPAL Seven MRS.

Grades One through Six eat at 11:00, grades Seven 'and Eight eat at 11:45, and grades Nine through Twelve dine at 12:02. The cafeteria also serves as a beautiful social room for school activities. POTS, PANS AND PERSONALITIES We wish to thank our eificent cooks, Mrs. John Bixler and Mrs. Raymond Mohn, for pre- paring those hot, delicious meals to which We all look forward.

How convenient it will be when the boys learn to use the power machines without causing accidents! What these lads need is experience, but under supervision. Safety is a predominant factor in the instruction of the use of the school's power equipment. gricuhuraf Goume AGRICULTURE 11-12 Benny Reed, with the advice of Mr. Sleppy, is demonstrating the use of the drill press, which is one of the most accurate means of drilling dif- ferent-sized holes. But why such a large appar- atus to bore one small hole? Only the Agriculture pupils can tell you. Fourteen INDUSTRIAL ARTS 11-12 What is a pipe threader? According to the expression on the lads' faces this must require serious thought. The Eleventh and Twelfth grade boys are also curious to know as Mr. Sleppy is about to show them how this apparatus works. Many a pipe can be ruined if one is not careful and exact. This pipe threader is one of the machines the boys should be able to operate by the end of the term. .gnclufffriaf .xdrfa INDUSTRIAL ARTS 9 "Study the mechanism of the seeder before you start to use it. Otherwise you may defeat the purpose of even the most useful of all new time-saving devices." This admonition comes from Mr. Sleppy. The Industrial Arts 9 boys are instructed how to adjust the mechanism of the machine. INDUSTRIAL ARTS 7 "Steady there, Larry! Don't saw that board crooked," says Mr. Sleppy, as he and the other Seventh grade boys Watch Larry Kline try his hand at handling the saw. These boys will, with- out a doubt, become good contractors some day- if they heed the advice of their instructor. Of course the work of a carpenter requires more skill than just that of sawing. 1 INDUSTRIAL ARTS 8 In the grade 8 Industrial Arts class the pupils are wondering how to use the square. But oh! To the rescue is Mr. Sleppy to explain its use in relation to measuring metal or wood. This accurate tool has many figures on it. Be careful, boys! To learn the purpose of the numerals and the use of the square takes time. The many uses of the metal polished steel square are demon- strated in this class. Fifteen SHORTHAND 11-12 "Write in Shorthand the brief forms-I, good, be, been, but, for, am, them, all-" says Miss Moyer to Jeanette SchaeH'er and Marilyn Bal- thaser. The other class members are carefully eyeing the work of these girls to see whether or not they are correct. When one is in a hurry, these 'hooks' are handy. Deciphering them is another story. TYPING 11 If you can type without looking at the key- board, you're good. Of course typing takes a lot of practice. Jeanette Schaeffer is trying her best to type by the sense of touch. Miss Moyer is always willing to give tips. But the juniors find there is more to the course than where one looks. Speed is a sure necessity before one can call herself an accomplished typist. Sixteen ommercia! gourae BOOKKEEPING 11-12 "Is this a debit or a credit?" asks Paul Miller as Miss Moyer is ready to oier him as- sistance. Other class members are doing the same problems. When you see green work sheets, you know pupils are doing Bookkeeping, which re- quires accurate and neat work. TYPING 12 "Careful now. Look out! Don't hit the wrong key," warns Miss Moyer as she watches Betty Koenig test her typing skill. Betty's classmates are also busily engaged in improving their speed and accuracy in this course. How discouraging it is to find for every error, you lose two points! Oh, well! That's part of the technique. .!4I'f.4 Art 11 The class is making mobiles and studying monochromatic heads. A mobile such as you see hanging from the window must be handled with care. The purpose of the head study is to show the proportion of the eyes, ears, etc., to the head. Besides this work pupils engaged in elementary ceramics. MUSIC 9 Mr. Berger looks on, or should we say lis- tens'?, While a group of Ninth grade boys, accom- panied by Kay Pfautz, sings one of their favorite songs. What is it, however, the boys are singing? Everyone seems to be enjoying the meter and the message of the lyric. Besides singing the Ninth grade music class also listens to classical records. Seventeen ART 9 It should be easy for these students to cos- tume a play for an assembly. Some pupils are painting costumes with water colors, while others are doing sketching. Mrs. Kohl is keeping a scrutinizing eye on them as they do this work. More close observation is necessary when it's time to clean up at the end of a period. MUSIC 7 A group of Seventh grade girls sings "Giri- biribin", accompanied by Eileen Tobias. With classes such as this, these pupils should become good senior chorus members in the future. Sing, girls! There is relaxation in this harmonious deed. Singing is one art in which all people do the same thing at the same time. river gjclucafion DRIVER EDUCATION Driver Education! ...... Where's the car? These students are studying theory. The machines are a means of testing visual acuity, depth per- ception, hand steadiness, braking distance, and reaction time. The theory of driving must be studied before the pupils actually get behind the Wheel of a car. With Gerald Miller behind the wheel and Mr. Matthew beside him, a part of the class are viewing the measuring of Gera1d's reaction time and his braking distance. What if Gerald's re- action time is slow? Will he be denied a driVer's license? This may be the thought of many a class member as he nervously awaits his turn. "Now watch for the red light 3 then brake!" orders Mr. Matthew to James Gehris as Bernice Luckenbill operates the signals of the machine that tests reaction time and braking distance. Waiting for their turn are: Marvin Kulp, Earl Bond, and Frederick McQuate. This knowledge should aid the pupils to be drivers with good judgment, a requisite especially in times of emergencies. Eighteen "Line the cars side by side!" directs Mr. Matthew to Jane Klopfenstein as she prepares to start the depth perception test. In this test Jane must line up the cars until she thinks they are side by side. What was your score, Jane? Results of this test can be most thought-provoking to anyone who already drives a car. omema ing HOMEMAKING 11412 X "Is this a knitted or a purled stitch?" Such a query introduces Homemaking. These Eleventh and Twelfth grade girls had approximately one month to knit a sweater or a pair of anklets. The girls enjoyed the art of knitting after they had passed the complicated step of learning how. HOMEMAKING 7 "Easy now, you missed a spot. Thereg now you have it!" is the thought of Mrs. Ritter as she conducts her daily Homemaking 7 class. Here you see Seventh grade girls learning the art of manicuring as Mrs. Ritter looks on. "But, re- member, girls, it is not polite to do this in public," warns Mrs. Ritter. HOMEMAKING 10 Even though we live in a machine age, these girls take an unusual interest in learning to knit. Of course Mrs. Ritter was always willing to correct that stitch that had been purled instead of knitted. This group made sweaters, shawls, or socks. We'll be waiting to see the girls don their finished products. We've seen baby socks and booties being made. Who'1l wear these? HOMEMAKING 8 Here are four girls stenciling on their own scarfs. The girls chose their own designsg such as, flowers, leaves, or monograms. We don't recall seeing these lassies wear the finished product. Wasn't their work of displaying quality? Oh, a Nineteen few more years and they may be able to surpass all of us in this fine art. anguageai GERMAN 11 Here you lind five of the German class finish- ing a miniature pail project. After having paint- ed the pails with flat black paint, they painted Pennsylvania-Dutch designs on them and bronzed the brims and handles. With vines in the pails, the environment of the library has been greatly enhanced. ENGLISH 8 Herman Degler, Shelve Benzel, Miss Riegel, Miriam Boltz, Betty Burkhart, and other class members look on as Mary Lou Hofert explains the poem, "The Good Samaritan", by the use of a visual aid. Such an aid should facilitate memori- zation and retention of this English requirement. Maybe this accounts for junior highschool mem- ory efficiency., A LATIN 9 Seven of the Ninth grade girls are eagerly engaged in one of the class activities. It may be the declension of a noun or the conjugation of a verbg or perhaps they are translating a mytho- logical story. In any case the girls seem to be busy as Mrs. Kline looks on. ENGLISH 10 Mae Degler and Nancy Phillips are reading their Voice of Democracy essays to their class. They were the chosen representatives from Grade 10 in the in-school eliminations. A bit more practice in this creative Writing, and perhaps Mae or Nancy will be able to represent Penn-Bernville in the County contest at the WRAW studios. Of the ten contestants Marvin Kulp of Grade 11 was the Winner. Twenty GEOMETRY 11 "There is the bridge across the Tulpehocken Creek," says David Sweigart as he proudly dis- plays his scaled drawing of the school path along the road to school. This one and one made by Marvin Kulp had been turned over to the Penn- Bernville School Board to be used in a discussion at a regular meeting. ywafkemafiw MATHEMATICS 12 "This shows how they compare," is a familiar expression used by the seniors studying various problems of the consumer. The graph used here by Jerre Gehris is just one example of various ways in which this class has learned to interpret statistical data and problems of everyday life. ALGEBRA 9 "What is the formula?" asks Mr. Sell as Warren Ebersole is showing members of the Algebra 9 class how to find the volume of a sphere. The algebra class constructed solid geometric figures out of construction paper. Each pupil had to apply the formula learned from the geo- metric figure to abstract problems. To most students the construction work is a popular assignment. Twenty-one MATHEMATICS 8 "Hold it a minute," says Barry Speicher. "Let me explain that easy problem." With prob- lems like this one, pupils should have no difficul- ties when they face the responsibility of managing their own homes. Perhaps Barry some day will be able to figure out his own income tax too. What a help that will be! But by that time there may be no such tax as that. GYM 11-12 Leo Houck is getting ready to receive the football while Henry Bohn is about to blow the referee's whistle. Football is one of the boys' favorite sports. When the weather permits, the boys who are sports-minded lose no minute of the lunch period. Out they go to play this game. pkydicafv glofucafion GYM 11-12 As Mr. Matthew illustrates on the floor with chalk, you see a few girls attentive to learn the correct technique of playing basketball. The hope of the girls is to organize an all-girl basketball team in the near future. GYM 7-8 "Line up and count off by four!" This class is in position to do the trunk-bending exercise. The boys do a number of exercises similar to this one. To close the gymnastics of the period, the lads usually do one lap around the track. Stay in good physical condition, boys! We'll need you in sports shortly. HEALTH 9'-10 Someone--short of breath? Well, not for a long time. Frederick Wilhelm is showing a group how to give artificial respiration. The boys have studied also other forms of First Aid, such as, symptoms of injuries, transportation of an in- jured person, and bandaging. Knowledge of First Aid is, according to statistics, a help in the pre- vention of accidents. -. Twenty-two cience PHYSICS 11-12 Barry Himelberger and Richard Balthaser are balancing two different weights on a ruler to find the principle of moments of the measure. The other pupils are watching and waiting for the correct readings to put in their experiment copy. What is the reading, Barry? We want to hand in our experiments on schedule. SCIENCE 9 Sherwood Himelberger is explaining the operation of a Model A Ford motor to the group. The class studied and learned about the operation of motors as well as the maintenance of them. This is just one of the many projects in which the class has engaged this year. But why a Ford motor, Sherwood? BIOLOGY 10 Insects! Oh, what a subject! But that goes with biology, the study of plant life. The Tenth grade pupils have made this insect collection which includes the bee family, the butterfly fam- ily, the fly family, as well as other insects which inhabit the surrounding sites. This is a course that could inspire a pupil to learn a great deal about the insects that pest him. SCIENCE 7 The pupils of the science 7 class are studying plant life and admiring the beautiful collection they have made this term. Included in this study are how the plant gets food, how the plant grows, and how to get seeds from the plant. The plants in the room require daily care. This activity is an interesting one since it enables the student who brought in the plant to observe its growth and development. Twenty-three HISTORY 10 Having read about the Greek and Roman contributions to civilization, the pupils have gathered around a map for a short quiz. With this audio-visual aid the pupils should be able to remember what scientific peoples these nations were. History 10 includes also the study of Egyptian civilization as well as other civilizations of the ancient world. HISTORY 7 As a group of Seventh grade pupils watch, Kenneth Mohn tells about Europe's Cradle of Civilization. Leslie Weidman points to Greece on the map as Miss Riegel listens attentively. Besides learning historical facts, Seventh grade here can learn also the fundamentals of out- lining. Miss Riegel correlates much English grammar and literature with social studies. Twenty-four onion! Sfuvhea HISTORY 11 As Gary Kohl points to the map of World News and explains the location of the new happen- ings of the week, several other pupils look on with interest. This study was a great help to the juniors when time for the debate rolled around. We participated in a triangle with Bethel and Ontelaunee schools. CIVICS 9 Since propaganda plays such a large part in our present-day political and economic affairs, Norman Burkey is shown pointing to a list of types of propaganda as Susan Goldstein, Pauline Glosser, Kay Pfautz, and Sherwood Himelberger look on. Studies of this nature may prove in- valuable to our future adult citizens. me X55 gfpil kfgisxxfx TE I 30 1 I My N fur W L if C9 G ENNAN Lx" N x X x RICHARD THOMAS BALTHASER "Dickie" Nature Club 1 Audio-Visual Club 2, 3 Camera Club 1, 2 treasurer, 4 Chorus 1, 2 Soccer 2, 3, 4 Art Club 2 PENNANT 4 l Richard, who can be found around the bowling alley, pool room, or a swimming pool, displays the gusto of a lad who means to do his job well.

As the years of your elementary school days go by, your knowledge is greatly augmented: but your class remains small, having been increased by only two - Bernice Luckenbill, who joined you in Second Grade from Pine Grove, and Violet Kramer, from the Strausstown School. As you enter your Sixth year of education, the names of Jerre Gehris from Muhlenberg Township and Cath- erine Rieser from Reading are added to the ro . 1949 - This is the year you enter Seventh Grade in the high school building. This, too, is the year the school acquires a new name, for Penn Township and the borough of Bern- ville have united and formed the Penn-Bern- ville Union School District. Besides becoming familiar with the name of Penn-Bernville, you become familiaralso with the names of Lois Frantz, Gerald Knorr, and Charles Seifrit, whohave joined your class from Muhlenberg Township, Exeter Township, and Bern Town- ship respectively. As you begin your Ninth year of education, you welcome to your class Marlene Beidler, Thirty-two I Seated: Bernice Luckenbill, Betty Labe, Jacqueline Saul, Lovina- Stoudt, Violet Kramer Standing, First Row: Betty Koenig, Lois Frantz, Elaine Fisher, Catherine Rieser, Sandra Fox, Doris Berger, Marlene Beidler, Mrs. Kline ,Second Row: Kenneth Labe, Richard Balthaser, Gerald Knorr, Richard Reber, Edward Kantner, Jerre Gehris, Leo Houck, Gene Spayd, Barry Himelberger, Charles Seifrit, Paul Miller Sandra Fox, Betty Koenig, Jacqueline Saul, and Lovina Stoudt - all from Jefferson Township. You, the Class of '55, along with your president, Jerre Gehrisg vice-president, Charles Seifritg secretary, Doris Berger, and treasurer, Barry Himelberger, are the last class to have Mr. J. Paul Burkhart for your homeroom advisor. This pleasure was yours for only one semester, preceding his retire- ment. In this brief time you are very much inspired by his advice. The same is true for Mr. E. Willis Minnich, who succeeded him. In your Sophomore year you selected your leaders: president, Catherine Rieserg vice- president, Jerre Gehrisg secretary, Betty Koenig, treasurer, Barry Himelbergerg chap- lain, Lois Frantz. On November 25 you have your first class party under the supervision of Mrs. Dorothy Hill. Two other important events of the year are: the "Irish Reel", the dance you sponsored, and the receipt of your beautiful blue and gold class jackets. As you reach your Junior year you elect the same class oiicers you elected the pre- vious year, having changed only the office of chaplain to Bernice Luckenbill. Among the many activities in which you engage are: bake salesg a tour of Philadelphiag a Christ- mas party, a swimming party, "The Robin's Hopvg and the presentation on Dec. 10 of your class play you'll always remember, "Miss Chatterbox". You purchased your class rings this year, under the direction of Mr. George M. Sell, your homeroom advisor. 1954 -'55 - the year to which you have been looking forward for so long a time .- your Senior year. Again you elect the class officers of the preceding year, having changed only the chaplain to Lovina Stoudt. Edward Kantner joins the class, increasing your class roll to twenty-three. Under the direction of Mrs. Pearl Kline, you sponsored: bake salesg a magazine campaigng a sample fair, "The Snow Ball Frolic"g and a class play entitled, "Boys About Bobbette". You took part also in the Junior-Senior Prom and May Day. You are the first class to graduate from the Penn-Bernville Center of the Tulpehocken Area Joint School System, which was formed this term. As you step for- ward to receive your diploma, THE BIG PAY- OFF, you have a feeling of triumph, for you have attained the highest rung of the ladder of secondary education.

In the latter unit pupils made covered Wagons, pottery, tom-toms, and a mural. Making a Nature notebook seemed to fascinate these pupils of the Third Grade. The contents included: how animals are different, how they get their food, how they escape their enemies, as Well as sections on magnets, the earth We live in, and the sky above us. The small picture shows a group of pupils working on such an animal notebook. A symphonette club, organized for the children, serves primarily as encourage- ment for the child to play an instrument in the school band.

This was a part of a study to develop a better understanding by the children of the community and its help- ers. They have made a study of the duties of a postman, milkman, fireman, etc. This unit was culminated by a trip to a dairy and to a chick hatchery.

This camera had been used to take some of the photographs for this annual. Members of our Student Council attended the County Student Council meeting at Northeast Junior High School in Reading. Besides having approved the school calendar and the activities of classes and clubs, this governing body has promoted school morale by designing a Wildcat emblem and having it placed on sweat-and T-shirts which were sold to the pupils. Officers of this group are: president, Barry Himelbergerg vice-president, Mar- vin Kulpg secretary, Catherine Rieserg treasurer, David Sweigartg chaplain, Brenda Kirkhoif. The representatives from grades 9, 10, 11, and 12 respectively in addition to one representative from grades 7 and 8 respectively meet every Monday afternoon during the second half of the Fifth Period. All clasees look to this group to ap- prove their activities. Whatever a class wishes to undertake as a fund-raising project is first taken by their class repre- sentatives to Student Council Where it is discussed. If this group approves, the approval of the principal, who is an ex- odicio member, is sought. Thus, Student Council serves as administrative unit for the student body. It is for this reason that they have the initial place in this section of the PENNANT.

At these meetings all mem- bers worked on appointed committees to arrange the annual. The pictures were taken, captions made, and copy written. But now the work just began. The engraver, Mrs. Kathryn Gehret, gave us the dimensions of the pictures. The committees scaled their section. After the copy had been typed, it was edited to fit the dimensions allowed for the writing. Final scaled dummies were completed by Elaine Fisher, Gerald Knorr, Betty Labe, Richard Bal- thaser, and Charles Seifrit.

Barry Himelberger Gerald Miller David Sweigart There are a lot of iirsts that have been attributed to Penn-Bernville, and undoubtedly a lot more will come its way. The latest of these iirsts came on the heels of last year's soccer season. Not only did the Wildcats push forward to round up enough wins to give them a winning season, but for the first time in the history of the school two Wildcats booted to Marvin Kulp Leo Houck 31, ra, wa top honors on the Berks County All-Star team. Honors in this case went to Bar- ry Himelberger and Leo Houck, both seniors. For their efforts both athletes were feted at a banquet where they were given medals for their fine, outstanding play.

The schedule itself turned out to be quite a challenge. Featuring games with Robe- sonia, Womelsdorf, Bethel, and Wernersville. Despite the fine record compiled by Penn- Bernville, the season's champions were not decided until the last game. With one game remaining, Penn-Bernville was tied for this coveted spot with its traditional rival, Bethel. As the seconds ticked out the last seconds of play with the score tied, Bethel copped the championship on a penalty kick to win the game. In looking back in retrospect Coach Har- old Matthew explained that the 1954 soccer Larry Luckenbill, LaVerne Koenig, Gene Correll, Robert Bender, Edward Kantner, Mr. Matthew gjclucafecl jeef team was by far one of the best teams he ever coached. The opening game of the season was against Robesonia at Robesonia which ended up in a tie, 0-O. With this scrimmage under their belts, the Green and White turned on the steam and came bellowing through with three wins in a row. In the second game against Wom- elsdorf at Womelsdorf, Penn-Bern- ville walked away with a 2-1 vic- tory. Against Bethel at home, the score read 2-09 and in the fourth game, Wernersville fell victim to the count of 4-1. Lady Luck ran out on the Green and White in their next two starts when they bowed to Robesonia at home, 2-33 and to Wernersville, 1-2, at Wernersville. Five points meant the margin of victory in the Wildcats' seventh game against Womelsdorf. Playing at home, the locals zipped past the visitors by booting across five goals to zero for their opponents. With one more game remaining and being tied with Bethel, the Wildcats were determined to romp through this one and win a cham- pionship. But again luck was not in their favor and they lost 0-1 on the Bethel field in a hard-fought con- test which was not decided until the last minute of the game when Beth- el scored on a long kick to win the Western Division championship for the first time. When the statistics were com- piled at the end of the season, Penn- Bernville had scored 16 times in eight games against eight goals for the opposing schools. Two of the games ended in shutouts for the local team. The top scorer for the Wildcats was Robert Bender, a sophomore, who booted six balls through the goal. .na , f a.-1 'QTZ2 ' :Q-75 ' 'si 'X ,f , s ,.... 1 X ,Q 40 g. .QQ is W' .. . ,,,, M53 V 22--37: ' fifwfe Q- L 15-i.-1-3 gsifT1??e1i ,- - ' -4 E95-,,-.-,...,s. -4- J-..

Although the Wildcats were unable to capture a Win in their five official starts, the spirit and enthusiasm displayed by the team, urged on by the cheerleaders who directed the cheers of the fans, gave Coach Harold Mat- thew the assurance that next year's challenge will be met more satisfactorily. Hampered by the lack of facilities and no gymnasium, Coach Matthew called for a prac- 1 Sherwood Himelberger Frederick Wilhelm tice on Dec. 1, 1954, which was held on the Bethel High School floor. By the time the first game rolled around on January 5, 1955, he had mustered a 15-player roster: three freshmen, five sophomores, three juniors, and four seniors. Practices continued on the Bethel floor and other floors Whenever and Wherever they were available. In the first game, Penn-Bernville was able to rally only 20 points to its opponent's 47.

It wasn't until Feb. 9 that the team again pitted its talents against the faculty on the Bethel floor. The students scored 38 points, but lost to the tune of 48-38. With three defeats now in the record, the Green and White pre- pared to meet Bethel for the second time, and again Bethel came up with the most points to hand the locals their fourth loss 55-36. In its final game of the season with North Lebanon on Mar. 1, the Wildcats scored 25 points against 46 for their opponents to ring down the curtain on their first unsuccess- ful, but promising, season.

The Green and White opened its season against a strong Newmans- town nine on April 4 at home. In this opener the Wildcats were handed their first defeat by a lop- sided score of 12 to 1. This loss, however, did not 'dis- courage the locals, for they bounced right back in their next game at Bethel on April 13 with an impres- sive 16-6 win over Bethel High School. By the end of their seventh game, the Wildcats had compiled a record of only three wins against four loss- es. The eighth game saw the Penn- Bernville nine come through with a decisive 1-0 victory. This eighth game was one of those games that could end all games. For in this game, which turned out to be a pitcher's duel, Barry Himelberger held the opposi- tion to just one hit.

Joseph Stamm leads the opening May Day march as the flower girls - the Queen's attend- ants - Grace Minnershitz, Irene Reppert, Marylee Gehris, and Grace Messner lead the way. Following the maid of honor, Shirley Hoyer, is our 1954 May Day Queen, Fern Berger. After the march the queen and her court were entertained by members of the physical education classes as well as by pupils of the elementary school. The back- ground consisted of flowers brought in by the student body. The queen and her at- tendants seem to be enjoying the enter- tainment. Unfortunately there was such a cool breeze that the girls had to resort to their coats for comfort. W The ninth and tenth grade girls are entertaining the queen with the May Pole Dance. The girls, as you see, have started the weave. The streamers were green and white, our school colors. A large number of people came to view the crowning. The pupils too seemed to enjoy this new experi- ence. Again Mother Nature made the girls struggle. The poles had to be securely fastened for this activity. The school's May Queen was Fern Berger, a senior in 1954. She was crowned on our school campus on Friday afternoon, May 14, 1954, at 1:30 o'clock. This was the first May Day in the history of the school. Miss Berger is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Berger of Bernville, R. D. 1. Her maid of honor was Shirley Hoyer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Hoyer. The program was under the direction of Mr. Matthew. Sixty-four H- , 360625 February 12, 1954. CUPID'S FROLIC was held in the school cafeteria. "Grab stakes and run!" was the highlight at the sophomore dance. "Save one for me", says Marvin Kulp as he approaches the shoe pile. Decorations included hearts dangling from a false ceiling effect produced by the parachutes. March 19, 1954. It is not that they are enemies, it is just that Betty Koenig and Bernice Luckenbill are jitterbugging to the tune, "Sh-Boom", at the ROBINS' HOP, sponsored by the juniors. In the background are Lynda Kulp and her brother, Marvin, also 'living it up'. You can see part of the decorations, the robins, streamers, and pole crepe paper. Featured at the ROBINS' HOP was the high school Dance Band which includes the woodwind section: Marvin Kulp, James Gehris, Elaine Fisher, Jane Wilhelm, and Fern Ernstg the brass section: Charles Seifrit, Gary Spangler, J erre Gehris, David Sweigart, and Frederick Wilhelm, string percussion: Lois Frantzg and percussion: Robert Bender. l l April 9, 1954. This occasion really brought out the school's male population because it was a Barn Dance, originally planned to be a Sadie Hawkins Dance. Getting rid of excess energy are Carrie Houck and La- Verne Koenig, who seem to enjoy square dancing. The center of all decorations was a drawing of a barn dance scene, animals were silhouetted for the side walls, and lanterns were suspended from the ceiling. Sixty-fifve November 19. Time out for a snack of chips and coke as a group of boys gather around the Paradise Inn. Serving the boys is Dennis Sweigart. The dance was one of the highlights of the sophomore class activities. The ENCHANTED EVENING theme was well carried out by decorations that included birds, leis, and the posts as palm trees. December 22. The annual Christmas dance, sponsored by the seniors as a 'home- coming' for alumni, was called the SNOW BALL FROLIC. It really brought out the graduates. The music was furnished by the FOUR DEUCES. Table decorations, the result of a Homemaking class activity, were snow women, some of which became a part of some of the classrooms during the winter months. - V 3611685 October, 1954. "We really fooled them this time!" could very easily have been the thought of both Mr. and Mrs. Matthew as they unmasked to receive a prize at the P.T.A. dance. Who would have guessed the football player and cheerleader? Fun- niest and best-dressed couples also received prizes. Mr. Matthew here seems to try to evade the camera. We presume his at- tire justiiies the gesture. Our P.T.A. sponsored this masquerade dance for pupils in grades seven through twelve. Winning first prize for the ugliest dressed individual was Frederick McQuate, Cleo Hoffman for the best-dressed single. Records were played for entertainment. The mask and dress allowed pupils to enter free of charge. Sixty-six w .fliama January 28, 1955. THE SNOWFALL BALL sponsored by the junior class was enjoyed by many students as they danced to the wonderful music provided by Maxie Kulp and His Orchestra. As the students and their guests entered, they registered and were presented with favors that con- sisted of two small snowflakes gayly sprinkled with sand and dangling on a ribbon. Here is another familiar scene at THE SNOWFALL BALL of a group of pupils and their guests sitting out one of the dances and admiring the decorations. Here you see a few of the seniors and a guest admiring the miniature snowman in the background. Scenes such as this occur fre- quently at our monthly dances held in the cafeteria. Sixty-seven Here are Joanne McQuate and Pauline Sonon enjoying a spot dance at the dance sponsored by the juniors. Of course there were many varieties of dances among which we may make mention of an elimin- ation dance . In addition there was a cake- walk, as well as a guess cake, to increase the enjoyment and merriment of all present. With a centerpiece on the wall in the form of a black hat and the words: SNOW- FALL BALL, in addition to the snowflakes dangling from the ceiling and flowers on the window sill, the environment is con- ducive to dancing. That is just what Earl Bond and Mildred Kiebach, Barry Himel- berger and Betty Koenig, Judith Bertram and Virginia Reed are enjoying at the time of this picture. "We were doing the mambo at our jun- ior class play!" exclaim Earl Bond and David Sweigart. This was one of the pan- tomimes done between acts of the play. Favorable weather, good acting, hilarious lines-all made this evening most enjoy- able. The fellows were really disguised, so much so that a few of us did not recog- nize Earl. Nice work, juniors! December 23, 1954. Betty Burkhart seems to be the center of attraction and attention as she sings a solo and also leads a group of Eighth grade members in sing- ing Christmas carols. Miss Riegel directed the presentation of the program. This pro- gram was an inspiring one, for it made us feel we had a good 'send-off' for the holi- day vacation. Ouafwwbn, cfbmfa December 15, 1954. Presenting the school's new Driver Education car to our instructor, Mr. Matthew, is Franklin Brown, representative of Brown Motor Co., Robesonia. Looking on are Frank Sylves- ter, president of the Reading Automobile Club, and principal of Penn-Bernville High School, Walter A. Rohrbach. How happy the pupils of Driver Education classes were to get experience in driving! Did the car stall or did David stall the car? That is a debatable question. December 16, 1954. This was the big event for the juniors as they presented their class play, "Home for Christmas". Playing the leading roles in the play were: Marvin Kulp, Winifred Pyle, and Henry Bohn. You see Winifred and Marvin in the picture. Mr. Kendra and Mrs. Kline directed the cast. Mr. Sz Mrs ' E. Thomas Sheetz Mr. Sz Mrs. Harry Gehris Norman H.
