There it stands so strong and sturdy, and yet so beautiful-a very type of the best sort of man. How proudly it lifts its bare head to the winter storms, and with what a full heart it rejoices when the spring was come again! How grand its voice is, too, when it talks with the windg a thousand aeolian harps cannot equal the beauty of the sighing of a great tree in leaf. All day it points to the sunshine, and all night to the starsg and thus passionlcss, and yet full of life, it endures through the cen- turies-come storm, come shine-drawing its sustenance from the deep bosom of its mother earth, and, as the slow years roll by, learning the great mysteries of growth and decay. And so on and on through gencrationsg outliving individuals customs d nasties-all save the , s Y landscape it adorns and human nature." --H. RIDER HAGGARD NATUREZS' SECRETS by G. Clwie Fisher.

CLASS OF 1956 PENN-BERNVILLE HIGH SCHOOL BERNVILLE PENNA. tb. il gk O Q-Y 'SV T f" .2 A f X Foreword DEPICTING FORMALLY the more serious aspects of our high school years and informally those phases closely associated with our everyday high school life, we present to you our PENNANT, the theme of which is nature. Since our school is located in an area deeply and intensely beautined by trees, we feel it is fitting to use these wonders of nature for the theme of our annual. WVE HAVE- ADOPTED the families of trees as our headings 5 and through them you see the pupils, in classes, activities, sports, and social functions, developing their talents and building the foundations which they will need for success in the future. 1955 PENNANT Award Medalist Certificate Columbia Scholastic Press Association Columbia University New York City, New York Dedication MR. HAROLD E.. MATTHEW AS A SYMBOL or the respect and affection which the Class of 1956 bears him, this volume of the PENNANT is sincerely dedicated to Mr. Harold E. Matthew, teacher of physical education, driver training, science, health, and the advisor to tenth grade. He is also the coach of soccer and baseball. We, having been his first class at Penn-Bernville, feel that his sincere interest in athletics, his emphasis on fair play, and his sense of friendliness and esthetic values have aided him to show us the value of perseverance, tenacity of purpose, courageous spirit, and devoted scholarship. It was Mr. Matthew who taught us how to conduct school dances successfully. His pupils will long remember him for his understanding and helpful guidance.

One of our objec- tives at Penn-Bernville is to try to do whatever we do just a little better than it was done before. Not only have I seen this spirit shown many times by your class but it has often been mentioned to me by various members of the faculty. You have helped to raise the standards of accomplishment for those who will follow you. Your class experienced two years of school in which you were able to choose courses in which you were particularly interested or in which you felt you could do your best work. I believe this has contributed to your individual achieve- ments. Although we always think of each one of you in terms of your all-around development as a person, a citizen, and a student in all subjects, we have also begun to think of you in the business course as potentially good secretaries or office personnelg of those in the agriculture course as better prepared for your vocation of farmingg and of those in the academic course as being more particularly prepared to enter college or other institutions for advanced learning. Many of you have distinguished yourselves in music, in art, in science and mathematics, in writing and speaking, or in athletics. My heartiest congratulations on your 1956 PENNANT. I am confident not only that it will rate high but also that it will be one of the most beautiful in Penn-Bernville's history. ASST. SUPERVISING PRINCIPAL MRS. ANNA KOHLHEPP Secretary Every day youd will find M1's. Anna Kohlhepp, Mr. Rohrbachis capable sec- retary, hard at work in her office or searching through the supply closet.

It is hoisted to its place in the front of the high school building each day by John Endy, our school custodian. After he learned the routines of this first-year job, he as- sumed outdoor tasks of the season, such as, mow- ing the lawn, clearing the steps of snow and ice, and keeping the grounds clear of refuse. -14- The WHITE PINE Amerlcan What is a school without custodian?

There are three shifts: grades one through six go to eat at 11:00, grades seven and eight eat at 11:45, and grades nine through twelve dine at 12:02. Mr. John Endy is to be complimented on the good job he does in keeping our school warm and clean. Almost any time of the day he can be seen with a mop or a broom in hand, cleaning up the dirt the students track in. His work could be greatly eased if every student would take ad- vantage of the mats found at all entrances. ..15- gui? -muuo " In THE TREE I love thee when thy swelling buds appear, And one by one their tender leaves unfold, As if they knew that warmer suns were near, Nor longer sought to hide from winter's cold, And when with darker growth thy leaves are seen To veil from view the early robin's nest, I love to lie beneath thy waving screen, With limbs by summer's heat and toil oppressed And when the autumn winds have stripped thee bare And round thee lies the smooth, untrodden snow When naught is thine that made thee once so fair, , I love to watch thy shadowy form below, And through thy leafless arms to look above On stars that brighter beam when most we need their care -Jom-:s VERY HOME BOOK OF VERSE.

We also see Mrs. Kohl, the art teacher, check- ing Sonja Henne's wood-burning project in the background. The class has made many other worksg such as, cave paintings, Egyptian art, and also church art includ- ing various cathedrals. ART8 Here you see several of the eighth grade pupils completing their drawings. These eye-catching pictures have helped to en- hance the environment throughout the school. One of their projects was to draw what they thought Mars and its inhabi- tants looked like. Grade 8 is always anxious for art class period since they enjoy drawing. ACAD MIC The GRAY BIRCH ART!! Brenda Kirkhoff chats with Nancy Henne about the enameled earring she is baking, as Nancy puts the finishing touches to her painting. In the back- ground is a drawing by another art stu- dent. Some members of this class have worked in oils. Also they are looking for- ward to tempera painting. ART9 nBe careful now," says Larry Leonhard to Norman Frantz, "and don't let the col- ors run into each other or your picture will be ruined." They have done many projects this year, some of which have been on display on the bulletin board. Promising talent is shown among these freshmen even if they 'seem over active, much to Mrs. Kohl's dismay. CUUR E A Very Adaptive Tree DRIVER EDUCA T I ON mTake your time, Forrest, and you won't hit any flags," exclairns Mr. Mat- thew, as LaVerne Koenig and Larry Luckenbill check his accuracy. These boys are setting up a course for other Driver Education students to follow. The stu- dents also have object lessons in the class- rooms. AEETY PATRUL 'WVait here while I see whether the street is free from traffic, "says Carl Lach- man to a group of school children wait- ing impatiently to cross the intersection. The safety patrols are observing the rules of the AAA, taught to them by Mr. Matthew. They also see to it that stu- dents behave in an orderly fashion on the buses, which is by no means an small undertaking. DRIVER EDUCA T I ON Faye Tobias is demonstrating, on the magnetic board, how to turn at the corner. The pupils learn what to do in traffic conditions in the classroom before they have actual experience at the wheel ,,,, "No price is too high to pay for a reputationf' is very true in this class. driving is of vital importance to citizenship. of the car.

Some of them also aid in keeping the cafeteria quiet while the grade children are eating. Another of their duties is to help those going home for lunch across the road. Their adviser, Mr. Matthew, has been teaching them the rules of safety and how they will bene- fit by observing them. HOMEMAKINC ffomemalcing I2 Working hard, these girls are seen ex- pertly putting the finishing touches to their garments so they can display them on the dummies seen in the background. most of the girls made jumpers and skirts with the exception of one girl who made a suit. H0m6mdklhg 9 Here we see Melinda White, Betty Burkhart, Jane Wilhelm, and Nancy Speicher making use of the living room corner of the lovely I-Iomemaking room. These girls have just completed their class lesson. They now are busily engaged, looking at the latest fashions and seeing what's new for home-makers. They are being instructed in the art of sewing. Homemaking I 0 This industrious group of girls con- sisting of Lynda Kulp, Joyce Delp, Pauline Glosser, Elinor Earhart, Kay Pfautz, and Susan Goldstein is working on their skirts. Since this is their first year of sewing, there was much basting and ripping be- fore the projects were completed. Their relaxed positions reveal they think it was Worth it. Homemaking 7A These seventh-grade girls are learn- ing how to become charming young ladies by properly manicuring their nails and brushing their hair 100 strokes a day with a good stiff brush. Ann Klose is indus- triously combing Louise Henkeas long blonde tresses. These girls will soon be learning other phases of Homemaking. IHJUSITIHI Arts .9-I0 Mr. Sleppy tells his class that some of the nicest architecture can be ruined if the nail is driven in at the wrong place. So he instructs his classes in the art of driving a nail into a board. Of course, one must hit the head of the nail, not the wood or one's fingers if one wants to make a success of the project. Industrial Arts 7-B 'LHOW do you find the center of the wood?" asks Barry Kraatz as the rest of the group proudly puts the finishing touches on their broornholders, which was their first project of the year. These boys chose bench stools to be their next project, suggested by Mr. Sleppy, who enjoys giv- ing these boys a good start in carpenter- ing. INDUSTRIAL AR T S Industrzkzl Arts I1-I2 These junior and senior boys are learn- ing how to become helpful husbands. After taking this course, they should be able to render assistance to the little wo- man when repairs are needed around the home. Here we see several of the boys working on some projects, Industrlkzl Arts 8 These Industrial Art students are pon- dering their next move in the construction of their broomholders. Mr. Sleppy is ex- amining the work of Leo LaFol1ette to make sure it is exact. If it isn,t measured correctly, the finished product will be unsatisfactory and the students' precious time will have been wasted. Now is the time to lay a good foundation for this work. Latin I0 Joyce Reber is busily engaged in the translation of a Latin story, Ulysses and his experiences. Mrs. Kline is carefully watching to correct any errors Joyce might make while the rest of the class is follow- ing the story in their books. Pictures illus- trating this myth provide a background for the photo. English I 0 Here we see members of the sophomore class engrossed in Elinor Earhart's read- ing from JULIUS CAESAR. Mr. Shenton has explained the features of Greek and Roman architecture and the famous phil- osophies that have transcended to us from ancient civilizations. Many of the students have noted the Greek architecture in the buildings in nearby towns. LANGUAGES German I2 'LWelches Tier ist das kliigste-der Hund, der Fuchs, oder der Wolf?" . . . write some of the students in German 12. Whether translating stories or conjugat- ing verbs, these pupils always seem to en- joy working with this familiar language. Notice the completed projects in the photo. English 8 These eighth grade pupils have been testing their ability in writing complex sentences. Larry Kline is proving to the class that the sentence on the board is a good example of a complex sentence be- cause it has a dependent clause and an independent clause. These students also have been studying simple and compound sentences. MA T HEMA TICS Trzgonometry I2 Mr. Sell is explaining this problem to a perplexed group of students. If you un- derstand the fundamentals of trigonom- etry, you are very lucky. just ask any pupil of this phase of mathematics. This is the first time in many years, that this subject is offered in the school. Arithmetic 75 Louise I-Ienke is explaining the mark- ings on the ruler to the rest of the class. The ruler is not the only tool used in construction. They are also learning to use a compass and a protractor. Correct usage of the ruler is a great aid in home- making and shop, as well as in science. If the pupils learn now to make their work neat, it will be easier to do so in other classes. Geometry II IF TXNO SIDES OF A TRIANGLE ARE EQUAL, THE ANGLES OPPO- SITE THESE SIDES ARE EQUAL. 'CTO prove this theorm, you must first bisect angle B and prove the two new triangles congruent. Then, since the triangles are congruent, 4 A: 4 B because corres- ponding parts of congruent triangles are equal," says Brenda Kirkhoff as Mr. Kaiser looks on. Brenda thinks this is very interesting. Algebra .9 These students are embarking on a career of higher mathematics by first learning the value of exactness in rela- tion to their Work. They will soon learn the formulas for finding the volume and area of these objects. It seems amazing that those formulas were originated so long ago by Greek and Arabic mathe- maticians. MUSIC MUSlb 9 This portion of the grade 9 music class enjoys watching Nancy Speicher as she demonstrates her skill on the piano. They have been listening to records and learn- ing how to appraise different types of music. The class is anticipating movies to be shown later this year. MUSlf 7A Cynthia Miller is seated at the key- board ready to accompany Larry Endy, Sandra Kerner, and James Kintzer, who eagerly await her introductory notes. They all appear to enjoy their music class immensely. Several members of the class are taking lessons on various musical in- struments. We hope to see them in the band very soon. Music 8 The interested expressions you see on the faces of these pupils stem from the fact that they are watching Kenneth Mohn as he disassembles his trumpet to explain to the class how the sound is produced. Besides this, the group studies the lives of various famous composers. They also listen to music appreciation records. Music 7B Here we see students of music class warming up on a few familiar Christmas carols in preparation for the Christmas program in December. Moreover, they enjoy singing "Mary Had a VVilliam Goatf "Polly-Wolly Doodle," :'Farmer Brown's Cow," "Chiapanecas," and 5'Clementine." Thesestudents also enjoy listening to classical records during their regular class periods. Gym I0 One of the games most frequently played in the girls' gym class, when the weather is suitable, is field hockey. Here we see a few of the tenth grade girls practicing a routine play as Mrs. Epler instructs. They also enjoy learning the techniques of girls' basketball which is played indoors during' the winter season. These girls enjoy tumbling on the mats. Health .9 NThat's too tight,', says Judith Bertram as Audrey Bohn adjusts her arm bandage. These ninth grade girls are practicing their knowledge of First Aid, which they have acquired this year under the able direction of M1's. Epler. The knowledge of First Aid can be a very valuable asset in many ways. It will be a great help when they have their own homes and children. PHYSICAL ED Gym 11-12 Here we see several boys doing one of the many stunts which are taught in the gym classes. This stunt is called a human pyramid. Be careful, boys, Elmer, Jerald, and Gene would not care to be dropped accidentally. To date other activities of this class included inter-class soccer com- petition. Health 8 "The human body is a very interesting and complex machinef' states Sally Care as she points to i'The Human Body ,at Work," one of the newly acquired aids in studying health. Mr. Matthew is the in- structor encharged with teaching these students the value of clean and healthful bodies. Charts like the one we see help to make these health classes more enjoyable. SCIENCE Chemistry II-12 "You gradually pour the diluted sul- furic acid through the thistle tube onto the zincj' says Marvin Kulp. Winifred Pyle watches the hydrogen accumulate in the bottle as Earl Bond records the effects. Mr. Sell supervises the experi- ment because working with acids and gases can be dangerous. General Science .9 These industrious students have made winter gardens as a part of their science study. Doris Correll and Joanne McQuate are holding theirs up for exhibition. The grasshoppers on the blackboard are also used for further scientific study. This is a study of science in general. A more de- tailed study of science will follow in the next year of school. Biology I0 '4The star fish is an echinoderm belong- ing to the asteroidea classf' states Sher- wood Himelberger. This class has disect- ed different forms of small animal lifeg such as, frogs, worms, grasshoppers, and clams in their scientific studies. The pupils find these lessons in disecting very inter- esting but sometimes difficult, The board in the background holds a Hunt with Care display. Science 7 Barry Kraatz is revealing some of the mysteries of science to the rest of the class, under Mr. Matthewis competent direction. In the background is the Mc- Connell Graph. This graph contains charts of the circulatory system, muscles of the body, and many other pictures which make health and science easy to understand. fhlstory 9 'iSee where the coal is mined, timber is cut, and oil wells are drilled in this re- sourceful state of ours,', exclaims Nancy Speicher, as she points to a pictorial map of Pennsylvania. The pupils find the study of our state very interesting. On the bul- letin board we see pictures pertaining to their history lessons. Geography 7 Mr. Kaiser and some seventh grade geography students are studying a relief map of the country of Japan. The class has been studying how people in the rest of the world live, what they do, and how their way of living compares with ours. As they read about the living conditions in other parts of the world, they are glad they live in America. SOCIAL STUDIES Itfstory II Frederick lNilhelrn is using the pointer to show the rest of the class some of the land claims made by the states about 1750. The other part of the map displays the territories during the French and In- dian War. Mr. Berger is their able instruc- tor. Ifstory S A group of eighth grade pupils listen attentively as Miss Riegel points to history references on the blackboard. Miss Riegel correlates much of her literature and Eng- lish grammar with social studies. If these pupils pay close attention, they will acquire a wonderful foundation for history and learn to better understand the problems in the world today. The YELLOW BIRCH: An Important Timber Tree Agricultural Shop II -I2 The eleventh and twelfth grade boys are putting the finishing touches to a teachers' mailbox that, when finished, will be placed in the ofiice. Time and pa- tience were required to make the mail- box, but with Mr. Sleppy and LaVerne Koenig as the head of the project, it was soon completed and is now serving its purpose. Agriculture 9 These nfuture farmersn are watching as Raymond Herring catches up on the latest farm improvements as described in 'Successful Farming". In addition to this magazine, the Agriculture Department also subscribes to many magazines which help the boys immensely in their work. VVe see also other members of the class working on their Crop Production Books. A CRI C UL TUBE Agriculture II -I2 Mr. Sleppy gives his advice to a few boys while the remainder of the class works on their farm account books. The farm account book is a true account of a local farmer, and the books must check with Mr. Sleppy's record when they are completed. Agrlculture 9 - I0 The ninth and tenth grade agriculture boys are diligently studying their lesson in agriculture, which was assigned by Mr. Sleppy.

The SUGAR: MAPLE: A Common Shade Tree COMMERCIAL Shorthand I2 Dear Mr., Dear Mrs., Dear Miss, . . . These brief forms are an aid in speed writing. Just ask one of the girls in short- hand class! Here we see Carol Tobias demonstrating her skill as Mrs. Mooney dictates. It is a great achievement for these girls to take dictation at a speed of 80 words in a minute. Boolclceeplhg II "Is merchandise inventory a debit or a credit?" asks Brenda Brehm, as she is busily working on aibookkeeping problem. These junior girls find their bookkeeping classes interesting, although they some- times find the subject difficult. They strive diligently to learn the fundamentals of bookkeeping in order to be better pupils in the second-year course. Typlhg I2 These seniors are typing warm-up exer- cises before they begin their assignment in the lesson for which they are marked. This class was the first to have the sec- ond year Commercial Course, and the pupils seem to enjoy it. Typing is an es- sential need for these girls as they are about to venture out into a secretarial world of their own. They are striving to type at a high rate of speed. Shorthand II These pupils anxiously listen as Mrs. Mooney points out some of the character- istics of shorthand to them. Several of the students are trying their skill by dis- playing their talents of shorthand on the blackboard. The characters being display- ed on the board by Faye Tobias and Nancy Henne are brief forms, which are an ab- breviated form of the most common words used by a secretary.

Winifred is more than a little inclined to argumentation. Her mind is a store of heterogeneous facts which she is apt to recall at almost any time. Not always relevant to the subject under discussion, these miscellaneous facts are apt to be startling and disconcerting to anyone taking the opposite side. Her 'fVoice of Democracy" speech was first runner-up in the county. She was voted the senior most likely to succeed. -36..

A friendly smile is characteristic of this lass who has been chosen the most friendly girl of our class.

There were no new additions this year, but we made great strides forward under the guidance of Miss Bickel, now Mrs. Noll. As we embarked on our high school career, we acquired Marvin Kulp from Birdsboro. As we went on into Eighth Grade, Gerald Heckman took his place with us. Under Miss Riegel's able l direction, we put on a play in assembly, entitled, "Forbidden F ruit", which was one of the first evidences of some of the varied talents of the branches of our tree. I .

CUPID'S FROLIC of our school. We enjoyed a swimming party the following summer. As we became sophomores, our advisor was Mr. Richard Spare. The year was highlighted by the arrival of our stunning red and black class jackets and a Christmas party. We again sponsored a dance, '4Cupid,s Frolicn, February, 1954. The decorations featured a dropped ceiling effect of white clouds and red sparkling hearts. The class officers were: president, Marvin Kulp, vice-president, David Sweigart, secretary, Carol Tobias g treasurer, Sandra Haag 3 and chaplain, Gerald Heckrnan. This year the class went on a Held trip to the Franklin Institute, Betsy Ross house, and the aquarium. Our class party was held at Glenn-Alsace, July, 1954. We gained two new branches-Gary Kohl from Wilson and Evelyn Larkin from Muhlenberg. Mr. Sell guided us in choosing our beautiful class rings at the beginning of our junior year. The Christmas party was enlivened by the presence of the advisor and his wife. The trunk and branches of our tree showed their merit in the presentation of the junior class play, "Horne for Christmas". Our class was well represented in school and county musical functions. There were representa- tives in All-County band, All-County chorus and All-County or- JUNIOR CLASS PLAY .. 39 - First Row: Carol Tobias, Earl Bond, David Sweigart, Fern Ernst, Gerald Miller.

TLJIQU Tree Under the direction of Mrs. Pearl B. Kline the SENIOR CLASS has sponsored the magazine campaign, merchandise club, a Christmas dance and bake sales. There are twenty-four seniors in the class. T The seniors had outstanding projects. They made earrings and pins in Christmas novelties. Clockwise: Winifred Pyle, Robert Kline, Gary Kohl, Glenn Beidler, Gerald Heckman, Jeanette Schaeffer. -40- In clockwise position we see YVinifred, Robert, Gary, Glenn, Gerald, and Jeanette in the candid photo, making beautiful Christmas decorations. The Snowflake Whirl, the Christmas dance, had a record number of alumni attending. We are proud to say that the seniors are a very active group, for they have members in all of the clubs. Those in which they take part are: Library, Audio-Visual, Typing, PENN-GUIN, PENNANT, Sports Boosters, Sports Leaders, Homemaking, F .F .A., Music, Chorus, Band, and of course members representing the class in Stu- dent Council. They also had an outstanding De- bate, Class play, Boarding House Reach, Sample Fair, Prom, May Day, and Graduation. Because of the cooperation of this class we can see why they should be represented by the Tulip Tree, a handsome North American tree of the Magnolia Family or Flowering Family with a crowning glory of tulip-like flowers. This tree is turned into high-quality paper for books, articles so familiar in the life of the seniors. Do wood Tree These twenty-six ambitious JUNIORS, repre- sented by the Flowering Dogwood that is used to make shuttles because the wood is hard, smooth, and shock-resistant and is especially valuable in the textile industry, are engaged in Audio-Visual, Art Club, Band, F.F.A., Homernaking Club, Senior Chorus, Music Club, and Sports Leaders Club. The class oficers-president, Brenda Kirkhoflf, vice-president, Frederick Wilhelm, secretary, Faye Tobias, treasurer, Dennis Sweigart, chaplain, Joan Houck-are doing a very good service in guiding the class progressively. They are engaged in many activities, such as, bake sales, selling necklaces and tie clasps. They presented their Junior Class Play, 'iMarry Them OIT", a three-act comedy with Brenda Kirkhoff in the leading role. The class is very well pleased with their class rings. They are also very proud to be able to spon- sor the Junior Prom. The candid shot shows Brenda, Joanne, Brenda Brehm, and Frederick preparing for a bake sale Brenda Kirkhoff, Joanne Wfcngert.

The class with the assistance of Mr. Sell, their advisor, is making any and every possible effort to earn money for their senior year activities. On these projects there seem to be a high degree of cooperation and many signs of good leadership. It looks as if the future will be bright for this active class.

A traditional activity of this class is the choice of their class colors-blue and gray. Stars, blue and gray crepe paper, and balloons in the cafeteria indicated "The Milky Way", a dance conducted on Nov. 23, was in preparation. Recordings furnished the music, and a special fea- ture was a jitterbug contest won by Gary Kohl and Virginia Reed. In the candid picture Lorraine, Su- san, Kay, Joyce, Pauline, and Lynda were busily organizing thoughts in preparation for the danc- ing dolls and the crystal ball which were portions h of the decorations. A bake sale, held at Bubbenmoyer's and a Christ- mas party were other activities in which the class participated. An anticipated activity is a class trip to Franklin Institute in Philadelphia.

With the cooperation of their teacher, Mr. Shenton, the class had a part in the Christmas program which was held at the St. Thomas Union Church. Other activities of the group included a science project with ter- rariums to make their science classes more inter- esting and the construction of a bookcase to put in Mr. Shentonis room. The class is engaged in the following clubs: F.F.A., Audio-Visual, Homemaking, Art, PENN- GUIN, Sports Leaders, and Sports Boosters. Eastern Cottonwood Tree Marlene Rentschler, Barbara Ernst, Grace Degler Kirkholf, Larry Kline. The glossy, leathery, toothed leaves of the cot- tonwood tree, largest of American poplars, have the shape of a triangle and give off a pleasant fra- grance of balsam when crushed. The seeds have a cottonlike wing by means of which they are spread that has given the popular name, cotton- wood, to this tree. It represents the EIGHTH GRADE which is composed of thirty-nine mem- bers. This class is advised by Miss Riegel. Those who lead the class are: president, Sally Care, vice-president, Larry Kline 3 secretary, Eileen To- bias, and treasurer, Irwin Zerbe. Red Cross, Audubon, Music, Audio-Visual, and Sports Boosters clubs are the organizations in which members of this class participate. One of the outstanding activities in which the grade has engaged was the sale of donuts during 'idonut weekn, They provided a fine program of inspiration for Thanksgiving. This included a choral reading and a play entitled, "It Sounds So Cheerful". Characters in the play as seen in the candid' photo were: Marlene, Barbara, Grace, Betty, Ardell, Larry, Ruth, and Larry Kline. They also accom- plished outstanding work in the Founders Day Program given at P.T.A. The play, "Bake a Cherry Pien, was given in honor of George Washingtonas birthday.

T rem blin The SIXTH GRADE consists of forty-one members with Richard Wilhelm, president, David LaFollette, vice-president, Lulu Broadwater, sec- retary, and Dennis Speicher, treasurer. These pupils enjoy the extra activities of Variety Club No. 3 and participate in Safety Patrol. Projects undertaken by this group of pupils include a Class Mural on Colonial times and the construction of a model volcano. They hnished the class mural by a correlation of art and social studies. The candid picture, in the background, Aspen an aqueduct of ancient Rome and Greece, shows Edward, Carl, Gretchen, Doris, Harold, and Rich- ard making parts of the mural. The class has several members in the school band. On January lst, their teacher, M1'. Carl H. Savage, left 5 and Mrs. Irene T. Hassler assumed his duties. The Trembling Aspen, representing the sixth grade, is a pioneer of the forest community 5 for it opens the way for other trees in the course of forest succession. Nothing is more im- pressive than to watch the changing color of the bark. As soon as it becomes wet, it changes from a yellowish-green to a deep olive green. Magazine paper is one of the fine products of this tree, so important in school life. Wilhelm.

They have, with the help of their teacher, Mrs. Rotherrnel, completed several projects. Among these they have painted trays and put designs on them. They used their trays to give as Christmas presents. They have had a part in the Hallowe'en parade, a Halloweien party, and a Christmas party. They have also made a movie of the Civil War and Epler, Dennis Zcrbe, Robert Smith. had a Valentine Party. In Social Studies they had a puppet show on Western Expansion. Working on puppets in art class, as seen in the candid picture, are: Nicholas, Mrs. Kohl, art instructor, Tanya, Joyce, Dennis, and Robert. The fifth grade also made a transpor- tation map.

Wieepin Advised by Mrs. Noll, the FOURTH GRADE, the Weeping Willow, a Chinese variety whose graceful branches droop in cascades nearly touch- ing the ground that is generally found along stream banks, consists of thirty-one members. Busy as beavers, they played a part in the Hallowe'en Parade and afterwards had a party. For Thanks- giving they made Pilgrim faces. Their largest proj- ect was decorating Hower pots with Christmas decorations. Part of the P.T.A. program enter- W zllow tainment came from this class. A Valentine box, St. Patrick's Day decorations, and an egg tree for Easter are their future plans. They have completed a science unit on aquarium and terrarium life. Studying Colonial life and dress is a worthy use of classroom time. A trip to the Berks Historical Society was included in a study of Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania German designs and a wall manual showing industries of Pennsylvania are some of their projects completed in their art work. ' On March 8 they plan to take a trip through Maierls Bakery.

I White Uzllow The lhlhite VVillow symbolizes GRADE THREE. Whenever the slightest breeze blows, the land- scape is fairly illuminated, for the silvery-white lower surface of the leaf stands in such a strong contrast with the dark-green upper surface. The chief value of the tree lies in its ability to bind soil along streams and as a beautifier of marshy meadows and pasture lands. This class, so repre- sented, is composed of thirty-six members and is directed by Mrs. Kathryn Brunner. The class has done work in the Red Cross and presented a fine Christmas program. They learned to play symphonettes under the direction of Mrs. Reif- snyder. Some of the outstanding proj- jects in which the class participated were: they made tom-toms, clay pot- tery, a related mural, and took an active part in singing. They had the bulletin board covered with In- dian pictures and brought Indian articles to school, such as, totem poles, dolls, belts, and other Indian articles. They even sang Indian songs. In the candid picture proudly displaying some of the articles which were made are: Nancy, Linda, Paul, Kurt, Harold, and Sally. Notice the covered wag- ons on the mural. -49- Mary Balthaser, Thelma Speicher, George Rep- pert, George Tobias, Suzanne Bender. hinin PWIIOUJ SECOND GRADE has forty-five pupils. They have packed Red Cross boxes. At Hallowe'en they had a part in the parade and afterwards enjoyed a party. For Thanksgiving Mary, Thelma, George, George Tobias, and Suzanne made Pilgrims, which you see in the candid picture. For Christmas the pupils made clay Christmas trees and painted them. They have made their own rhythm band instruments this year, having used paper plates, bottle caps, salt boxes, and oatmeal boxes. Their future plans are to make a Valentine box and have a Valentine party. This class, represented by the Shining Willow that deserve a place of honor on the home grounds because it has green leaves so glossy they gleam in the sun-like silver and that is transplanted with ease, has an aim to love reading. Many new books helped to promote this interest. By means of these books the pupils hope to get a better understand- ing of our community life. In art class the second grade made a frieze which included churches, banks, houses, factories, schools, etc., to show the duties of the various pub- lic servants, such as, the postman, the milkman, and the fireman. Future plans include a trip to a dairy and a chicken hatchery in the spring.

Pennant Under the supervision of Mrs. Kline, the twen- ty-four members of the senior class met Novem- ber, 1955, through February, 1956, to publish the annual school yearbook, the PENNANT. There is a lot of work put into the PENNANT, as all the seniors now realize. First the pictures were taken by our photographer, Mr. Leon Himmelberger. Captions were made by the individual commit- tees. After copy was written, the engraver, Mrs. Kathryn Gehret, gave us the dimensions of the pictures. The pictures were scaled. After copy was typed, it was edited to Ht in the space allowed for the copy.

This was one of our greatest years in baseball for Penn-Bernville High School since 1942. Yes, the Western Division Championship was won by the fighting Wildcats, thus putting our Robert Kline pitching a ball or in his wind-up. play. school into the County-Playoffs. The seasonal rec- ord for league competition was seven victories to one defeat. The Wildcats opened the season on April 11, 1955, against Bethel on the home diamond. This ,was a very close game. The outcome was a victory Mr. Matthew, coach, with a basketball and a referee whistle.

The next seven games were won in succession with the very last league game the most exciting. Robert Kline, a stocky junior, threw a one-hitter against the VVernersville Redskins. The score was 14 to 0 in favor of the hungry WILDCATS. The first game of the County-Playoffs was played at Birdsboro. That game featured the strong arm of Barry Himelberger, who, up to the last half of the seventh inning, was on his way to winning his first County-Playoff game, however, the Birds of Birdsboro came back to score two runs in the last half of the last inning and beat the Wildcats by a score of 4- to 3. The second game was played on the Penn-Bernville diamond and presented a challenge to the Wildcats, for they had to win this game to stay in the playoffs. The game was even in hits, but the erratic fielding of the Wildcats proved to be the faltering factor. The final score was 8 to 5 in favor of Birdsboro, thus eliminating the VVildcats from the playoffs.

Shag-Bark Ifckor :Athletic Egunnment There is a time when almost everything goes the way you want it to, and there are times that no matter what you do everything seems to go wrong no matter how hard you try. This statement sums up our 1955 SOCCER season which ended with a record of one win, four defeats, and one tie game. Many things hampered Coach Matthew and the soccer team in a year that could have been more successful had some things remained the same. These things were the results of school jointures and team injuries. The latter accounted for the uncertainty of starting line-ups, which saw new faces in almost every game. Although there were seven seniors on the team, only three of them had had previous experi- ence. It was around these three that a team was built. The boys played well on defense, but the inexperience showed up in the offense First Row: LaVerne Koenig, Curtis Miller, Raymond Herring, Richard Mengel, Sherwood Himelberger, Carl Lach- man.

The first game we played on the home field against Schuylkill Valley. The game saw only one goal scored which was by our own Gene Correll on a corner kick. Well, the Penn-Bernville Wildcats squeaked by Schuylkill Valley 1 to 0 and were off to a good start, everyone thought. The second game saw this hope fade as Conrad Weiser, one of the jointure schools, played the Wildcats on the home soil. This game started out to be quite a game, but in the second half the extra manpower of the Scouts started to show in the game as the visitors started splitting the goal to defeat the host Wildcats 4 to O. The next game against our arch-rivals, Bethel, ended in a scoreless tie. The Schuylkill Valley game was won by the Schuylkill Valley team by a score of 2 to 0. The game against Conrad Weiser followed the pattern of the first game with the Scouts leading 1 to 0 at halftime. In the second half the mighty wall fell on the Wildcats, as the Scouts scored four goals. The final result was a 5 to O victory for Conrad VVeiser. The final game of the season was played on the home soil against Bethel, and saw them score two quick goals in the second period as they later added two more. The final score was 4 to 1 in favor of Bethel. Marvin Kulp, a senior, having played four years, was picked to play right- halfback on the County All-Star Team. He was feted at a banquet and was given a medal for his outstanding performance in his four years of this sport. . ' . eefaiilf . ,lg . iii' . If " .rt Wg .. . ,X . ,.,, , , nigga, --ts ff .

In the pictures shown on these pages, you can see the girls engaged in the various sports offered for them at Penn-Bernville. The student body for the first time this year witnessed two very exciting field hockey games. In the first game, the eighth grade girls were pitted against the ninth grade girls. Here spectators witnessed some outstanding plays made by the girls of both sides. Ninth grade emerged victorious to the tune of 3 to 0. The goals were scored by Patricia Kalbach, Joanne McQuate, and Janice Seip. The sophomore girls were opposed by the juniors and seniors in a Held hockey game that held the spectators interested from the first whistle till the end. Both i sides played very hard, but the defenses were too strong, and the game ended in- Marilyn Balthaser Joan Houck Winifred Pyle Sandra Haag Fern Ernst Joyce Delp Some of the other games that the girls participate in are: soccer, volleyball, and a modihed game of basketball. All are taught and played in gym classes. As spring comes along, we expect to go Hall-out" for volleyball and softball. A lunch- time program will be set up for all those interested in this sport to create greater enthusiasm for the game. Furthermore, there are plans to visit an archery course and have the girls try their hand at the bow and arrow. We hope, too, to include some track and Held events in our gym classes. Looking ahead perhaps we can look forward to participating in sports in this area on a larger scale. Mrs. Epler, the girls' physical education teacher, hopes to develop enough interest in the various girls' sports so that in the future the pupils will be able to participate in inter-scholastic athletics the same as the boys do now. For the first time in the history of the school, the girls' gym classes, through the efforts of Mrs. Epler, were outfitted with beautiful blue gym suits. We trust the keen interest and the great enthusiasm of the girls will cause this new phase of student life at Penn-Bernville to thrive and to develop into a sports program both in the high school and in the community equal to that fostered and nurtured in the boys, athletics. The goal of the group is to make possible "a girl for every sport, and a sport for every girl".
