U ' ’ 196s Myers Park High School Charlotte, North Carolina Volume 17 JTe Proudly Dedicate The 1968 MUSTANG Spending time and energy helping students beyond what is expected, she has added her personal touch to Myers Park. She is never too busy to listen to a student’s problems, offer words of advice, or give the words of encour¬ agement which often mean the differ¬ ence between success or failure. As if making history a vital, interesting sub¬ ject is not enough, she supports all school activities. In addition to her work for three years with The Senior Mrs. Sawyer helps to calm stage fright backstage with a cheery face before musical productions. Mama makes her contribution to the theatrical performances by supervising the make-up crew. Dressed as a Marine Sergeant Mama Sawyer displays the extent of her theatrical talents. Mrs. Sawyer, a rare person, understands and helps all students. Time is no factor, she is always willing to listen. 2 To Mrs. Florence Sawyer, Our Mama Class, she has assisted with the musi¬ cals and with Senior Class plays. Be¬ hind a gruff exterior there is a sympa¬ thetic, warm individual. Although she often threatens to “tear someone limb from limb”, we know that her sincere interest in all students shows her love for us. Two thousand students call her “Mama” and return her love by dedi¬ cating the 1968 MUSTANG to our Mama, Mrs. Florence Sawyer. Grading a history paper with Columbus discovering America in 1942 tends to make Mama Sawyer loose her patience. Completely disgusted with the senior class’s drowsiness at graduation practice. Mama Sawyer looks for condolence from other faculty members helping with graduation. Wk A 3 Myers Park Offers the Opportunity to Serve the Community, to Seek Knowledge, and to Share Friendships The opening of a new school year marks the commencement of Fall and school is officially underway with the green and white game. Sophomores, confronted with the many opportuni¬ ties at Myers Park, realize to excel is to reach out and take what they are offered. Wei -CDme 5 The Wide Scope of Interests and High Academic Standards The joy of winning and the agony of defeat elicit unity; the combination of strength and knowledge make a team invincible. The goal of excelling set so earnestly this Fall seems to have been pushed aside for extra-curricular activ¬ ities. 6 Provides Preparation for Life in Our Complex Society Filler d ’ ' ■ V 7 Enthusiastic Students Excel with True Mustang Spirit in 8 Specific Areas of Scholarship, Leadership, and Citizenship The first snowfall announces the arriv¬ al of Winter and the basketball season. Juniors are unde r pressure to make their grades for college and for the first time are participating in College Entrance Examinations and National Merit Tests. The Christmas dance is in the final stages of planning and Ju¬ niors decide on a theme for Junior- Senior. 9 MP A ffords to Each Individual an Aura of Belonging The Winter Season is drawn to a close with snow changing to rain, Myers Park at the state basketball confer¬ ence, wrestlers winning the state match, and students preparing for semester exams. The reaccrediting program reached its peak with profes¬ sors visiting Myers Park to find not only excellent academic standards and facilities but honor and good citizen¬ ship. 10 { 19 §§ e fto You ? uTTckeT 11 12 Student Life 15 Horner A wards 20 Faculty 23 Sophomore Class 33 Organizations 47 Clubs 55 Sports 61 Soccer 61 Cross Country 63 Football 64 The trees are in their autumn beauty. The woodland paths are dry, Under the October twilight the water Mirrors a still sky .... William B. Yeats 13 Senior Hi-Y’ers Gary Babcock and Steve Graham create a new Myers Park tradition in the painting of “the rock.” During the year it is not unusual to see the rock painted a different color by a rival school. Spirit of Being a What is Fall 1967? Companionship, solitude, exuberance, nostalgia, con¬ centration, relaxation, confusion moods as ever-changing as the seasons. Each new day brings a familiarity with sights, sounds, and the buoyant spirit that composes Mustangland. The rush is on. Spirit, like a contagious disease, is transmitted from one stu¬ dent to another during Fall Orienta¬ tion. This mania spurs the individual to eagerly cheer at football games on crisp September nights. Each pep rally, game, and assembly add to the fire of the student’s enthusiasm. It is all part of the Fall fervor: balloons float¬ ing high to raise spirits after a lost foot¬ ball game; service clubs vying with one another to prove their dedication to Myers Park; academically orientated clubs striving for intellectual insight into special fields. This new beginning brings great ex¬ pectations to the Sophomore, a renew¬ ed sense of pride for the Junior, and a The first sight one sees on entering the stadium is an enthusiastic Welcome to Mustangland. A contagious feeling of exuberance is transmitted to anyone who wishes to become involved. Mr. Peel, one of the twenty-four new teachers this year, listens attentively to the comments of his German class. 14 Mustang Exudes All Phases of M.P. feeling of responsibility and superiority to the mighty Senior. Nevertheless, many scenes remain the same for all classes—tag football dur¬ ing lunch and socializing in the seldom deserted student lounge. Senior girls challenge sophomore and Junior girls to an exuberant game of “red rover”. The boys serve as the attentive specta¬ tors. On cool days, groups of students strum their guitars on the lawn, re¬ creating the mood the upperclassmen know so well. “Come to the Cabaret!” There is no better way to meet the wide variety of talent at Myers Park. The Show Biz Revue ’67 glitters with new talent, new ideas, fresh jokes, and much fun. This year every Mustang feels a part of the show whether as a spectator or as a chorus girl. The talent show gives a student an opportunity to visualize the future reservoir of leadership from which the school will draw. With her captivating voice Junior Betsy Powers adds her name to the lengthy list of talented students. Beth Loonan, Amy Yopp, Anita Stonecipher, Marcia Martin, Kathy Shatley, and Rita Heanie entertain by enticing the audience to “Come to the Cabaret” 15 Bar-BQ, Homecoming Weekends Spark Myers Park thrives on purposeful ac¬ tivity. With a common concern for the During PTA Back-to-School-Night, Mrs. Sawyer orients parents on the history course she teaches. school s welfare, students and parents co-ordinate their efforts to make the school year a success. The tall PTA “Back-to-School Night” introduces the parents to their children’s sched¬ ules and teachers in order to create a healthy atmosphere for communica¬ tion. With such communication much can be achieved during a year regard¬ less of the endeavor. For example, the barbeque must be considered a tre¬ mendous success for the PTA and the student body. Club members devote after-school hours wrapping eating utensils while their parents organize a day of eating and entertainment. Such co-operation adds to understanding between the generations. Enthusiasm, whether for studies or football team, is generated by people who are more interested in developing an esprit de corps than in a mere victory. Clubs are taking it upon themselves to boost Myers Parks spirit by presenting original skits with em¬ phasis on sportsmanship. By involving many people, these skits stimulate anticipation for the coming event. Straw hats and short dresses flash the “Roaring Twenties” theme for Home¬ coming. During half-time a raccoon coat is the perfect award for the new Homecoming Queen. By the end of the evening all can see that the “Buga- loo” and “Funky” have taken then- places as this generation’s mode of dancing. “Be Happy” shouts the Barbecue’s theme. The Noblemen, one of several hit groups, presents some real “soul” music by which to eat barbecue. The Barbecue is the PTA’s one tiring, yet enjoyable, money-making project Early morning sunlight brightens the horizons of learning for Calvin Gregory. Hi-Y Club members Gary Babcock and Eddie Moore stage a boxing match at a pep rally, suggesting the fight ahead between the Mustangs and the Green Waves. 16 Autumn Activities He-Woman Greg Currie endorses M.P.

Jebbie Hugget is caught up with the spirit. She is ■een wearing the short dress, textured stockings, aid high boots typical of the new fads. Homecoming Weekend is the highlight of the football season. Each class elects attendants for the Queen, selected by the football team. Pictured are Junior Attendant Baxter Hutcheson, Senior Attendant Anita Stonecipher, Queen Libbie Andrews, Senior Attendant Rita Heanie, and Sophomore Attendant Cathy Surratt. Randy Land, Jim Stallings, Sally Cates, and Duff Goforth are enjoying the Homecoming Dance featuring the Chevelles. Sally and Duff blend into the background of the “Roaring Twenties.” After Adjusting to Routine, M.P. Students As the school year progresses into its third month, our campus is witnessing a gradual transition from the chaos of orientation into the familiar reflective mood of Autumn. Myers Park and its students are assuming a quieter air as the real business of school becomes apparent. Mid-term exams have a so¬ bering effect on classes which have been in session for nearly a quarter. Yet one does not forget that Myers Park aims at educating the whole person. Not only is scholarship stres¬ sed, but also creativity in our minds and bodies is essential in developing a sensitive human being. A subtle, yet noticeable, change is occurring on the campus. Late Autumn is a reflection of the gradual maturing of both the student and the individual. R.U.R. reveals a world of the future This year monograms are appearing on nearly every article of clothing. Sweaters, skirts, blouses, and even boys’ pants are being given an identity. Chris Blucher and John Sadoff show their symbols of identification. During the lunch period Maria Guillet tries to concentrate in the Student Lounge on incomplete homework. Seniors are given the privilege of using the Student Lounge during the three lunch periods. Some study; others consider it just a place to relax. 18 Release Efforts for Supporting School with unfeeling robots. The Senior Class Play is a superb chance to see such a world depicted by actor-students who grasp the scope of universal inertness. The Drama Department has the most comprehensive range of any of its kind. This range can be witnessed by seeing the Spoon River Anthology , presented by talented drama appren¬ tices. Thanksgiving has arrived. Traditional¬ ly, the Senior Class selects one girl to represent the School in the Carrousel celebration. This year, Joy Cox is Myers Park’s Carrousel Princess, hon¬ ored at the Carrousel Ball and Parade. i jpui • Jr Stephanie Mann, Troy Alexander, and Steve Shar- man stop a few moments to talk.

Ken Coe 20 Horner Awards Recognize Exceptional Seniors Honored for Devoted Service Each year outstanding members of the Senior Class are honored with the Horner Award for their exceptional achievements and invaluable service to the school. Those selected display high standards in leadership, scholar¬ ship, service, dependability, and char¬ acter. The number of students varies each year, but the qualifications re¬ main the same. The Horner Awards were established in 1962 in honor of Dr. Jack Horner, principal of Myers Park from 1955 to 1960. By means of the invaluable time and effort that they have contributed, these students have helped to better Myers Park. Without these leaders Myers Park would suffer not only from the loss of their service, but also from the loss of the example set for other students. Whether excelling in athletics, student government, art, music, or simple diligent effort for the school, the Horner Awardees have proven throughout their three years at Myers Park that participation brings enjoyment and fulfillment.

Lewis Dr. William Self Principal Superintendent Myers Park Receives Re-Accreditation Hopes for a successful school year were realized through the excellent coordination of the administration staff at Myers Park. Dr. Lewis worked diligently to develop better communi¬ cation and understanding between fac¬ ulty and students. This year, Myers Park underwent a Re-accredition Survey. In preparation for the final evaluation which was held in April, all departments con¬ ducted a thorough self-evaluation of all phases of the school curriculum. All teachers worked long hours after classes ended to make sure that their departments met the required stan¬ dards. The re-evaluation was con¬ ducted by a team of educators from high schools and colleges all over the state who observed classes in all de¬ partments at Myers Park. Through the cooperation of students and faculty, the inspection was successfully com¬ pleted. Mr. Johnny H.

Suzanne Clontz Vice President Mark Fellars Secretary Ambitious Officers Represent Entire Sophomore Class The Sophomore Class entered Myers Park in September full of anxiety and ambition. They were welcomed by an Orientation Assembly given by the Senior Class and Dr. Lewis. Different clubs, by having teas, gave the new stu¬ dents a chance to meet classmates as well as upperclassmen. After discovering the many opportuni¬ ties in clubs and activities, the Sopho¬ mores began to participate in the fields of their interests. Junior Varsity cheerleaders led the spectators to en¬ courage many victories from the J.V. teams. The DAT tests, administered in the fall, were good experience before the two-hour exams in January. Soph¬ omores attended most of the dances and helped to complete teh Home¬ coming and Christmas courts. As the year progressed, the students elected officers to lead the class through the rest of the remaining months. Most Sophomores obtained their Driver’s Licenses, but not without some dis¬ appointments, and very exciting mo¬ ments. On the whole, the entire Soph¬ omore year proved to be a very exciting one, giving the Youngest Class an idea of what future years at Myers Park have in store for them.

Council Officers Inject Original Ideas to Motivate Entire Student Body In support of their hottest candidate these “firemen” demonstrate one of many gimmicks used during the elections. 47 Mustangs Choose the Student Council Committee That Tombstones, one of the Publicity Committees’ projects, represent the spirit of Myers Park students, and the strong desire to “kill” the opposition during football season. Leadership on the Student Council Committees is the key to success, and this year Myers Park is fortunate enough to have excellent leaders. Co- chairmen for the Dance Committee are Carol Woods, Anne McLaughlin, and Lewis Hawkins. For the first time in several years, Myers Park had five big dances: Homecoming, a Christmas Dance, Valentine’s Dance, the always popular Sadie-Hawkins, and the Junior- Senior Prom. The Publicity Committee is led by Margaret Townsley and Nick Horney. The purpose of the committee is to create spirit and enthusiasm for all events. Laurens Willard paints one of many spirit signs seen around campus for the Publicity Commit¬ tee. Participating in football intramurals is only the exciting part of the Intramural Committee. Many hours are spent compiling a schedule for homerooms to compete within the classes, and homeroom champions from each class to compete. Dance Committee co-chairmen Carol Woods, The high point during the football season is the Homecoming Game; Dr. Lewis sports a hip ’coon-skin coat to Lewis Hawkins, and Anne McLaughlin plan for complete the Roaring 20’s background, theme of the Homecoming weekend, many enjoyable evenings. 48 Requires Their Creativeness, Talents The Myers Park Student Council Of¬ ficers, Jeff Hinkle, Gary Babcock. Bill Wilkerson, and Carol Baucom, made a special effort to inject original ideas into the program for the year. Mr. Browne proved to be an excellent advisor, capable of turning the ideas into reality. Hie annual Barbecue fell under the direction of the Student Council, as well as plans for Myers Park’s first Carnival, held in the Spring. Any voting concerning the study body was arranged by the Election Commit¬ tee. Co-Chairmen Molly Culp and Anne Earnhardt worked in each elec¬ tion, making, distributing, and tabu¬ lating the ballots. All class office elections were directed by the com¬ mittee. The Student Council election is an¬ other large project for the committee, involving an assembly, speeches, cam¬ paigns, and enjoyable skits by the candidates. The Handbook-Scrapbook Committee was led by Laura Graham and Betsy Bolen, and advised by Mr. Mac! ntire. The first project, and possibly the most important project, was the distribution of handbooks to Sophomores and new students. Information about functions, activities, the constitution, rules and regulations were compiled, printed and distributed during the first week of school. David Mel aughlin and lloppy Hliot set a good example, ax co-chairmen of the House and (irounds Committee.

Mrs. Grossman and Miss Bost, the advisors for the cheerleaders, boosted the moral of the girls when Mustang Spirit seemed to slacken. In addition to being good ambassadors, these girls must also set a good example for students at Myers Park. The spirit of the entire school depends upon the degree of enthusiasm of the cheerleaders. They promote good sportsmanship and friendly competition at all home athletic events by buying drinks for the visiting cheerleaders. The duty of a cheerleader goes far beyond the task of cheering at athletic events. She must attend cheering practice every Monday afternoon and help teach the techniques of cheering to other girls aspiring to become cheerleaders during Spring try-outs. Weekly practice was held to learn new cheers as well Pam Bayne Lane Carson Anita Stonecipher Sally Helms, Alternate 50 Sophomore cheerleaders enthusiastically take the opportunity to stimulate true Mustang spirit during the half time at a rousing Junior Varsity basketball game. Competition, Rousing Mustang Spirit as practice tile old ones. The cheerleaders tried something entirely different this year, soul” cheers which were continually heard around Myers Park’s campus. The cheerleaders planned all pep rallies, for out-of-town events, which were held throughout the year. They helped advance the slogan “Nothing To It But To Do It” by selling buttons bearing this motto. They also sponsored a car decorating contest for one of the big football games. Myers Park Stu¬ dents parked their decorated cars in the SC parking lot and the cheerleaders acted as judges during the three lunch periods. The owner of the most originally decorated car was given two free tickets to Park Center. The efforts made by the cheerleaders were rewarded this year by the arrival of new uniforms, which were provided by Myers Park’s Athletic Department. The girls were proud of their new uniforms, but not so proud as Myers Park is of them, for they are the foundation of Myers Park’s School Spir¬ it. JV Cheerleaders take a break in weekly practice where they strive to become a unified and co-ordi¬ nated group.

Ruth Huneycutt, Alternate JV Cheerleaders assisted the Varsity Cheerleaders in promoting true Mustang spirit at all varsity sports. 51 Talents Manifested Through Concerts Mr. Mims directs the orchestra during class, where the students learn new and varied pieces. Once again under the fine directorship of Mr. Mims, the orchestra had a very successful year. They not only enter¬ tained the Myers Park Student Body at Christmas time, but also in the Spring. At the Spring Assembly Mary Catherine Rendleman, the concert mistress, displayed her dedicated dis¬ tinctive talent through a solo. It seem¬ ed that these two assemblies tended to open the eyes of Myers Park Students to the fact that the school has an outstanding orchestra. The activities of the orchestra seemed to double this Winter. Several members of the orchestra at¬ tended the All-State Orchestra held in Greensboro in January. Later the orchestra performed for all the Char¬ lotte Area Junior High School Orches¬ tras, with a separate assembly given for Sedgefield Junior High School. The entire orchestra went to Greens¬ boro to attend the State Orchestra Festival for rating. Myers Park’s Or¬ chestra was rated superior. “Brigadoon” was aided in its success by the orchestra. The many hours that the orchestra spent working toward this success truly proved beneficial. The Myers Park Orchestra demonstrates its distinctive talent at a school concert Many long hours were Students desiring to become All-State Orchestra spent practicing to obtain the precision and timing the orchestra acquired. Members practice numerous hours after school. MP Students look on as the orchestra practices selections from the musical “Brigadoon”. The orchestra practices selections they are going to play for the Charlotte Area Junior High School Assembly. Following this assembly the orchestra must prepare for the concert for Sedgefield. 52 Majorettes, Lettergirls, and Band Perform Varied Shows Mr. MacGrew started drilling the band, majorettes, and lettergirls two weeks before school started. Practice during and after school developed the precision and excellence displayed by the marching band at half-time shows. The majorettes had performances ranging from Halloween witches to Roaring Twenty flappers. The letter¬ girls used pom pons for the first time and paraded as a twenty-four legged Mustang at MP’s first pep rally. The degree of enthusiasm in the band was certainly doubled with encouragement given by Mr. MacGrew. Myers Park’s Majorettes are: Rita Haene, Becky Rollins, Beth Loonan, Marsha Martin, Head; Amy Yopp, Rhonda Seegal, Gail Bishop. The Band gave one assembly this year to prove Myers Park’s Lettergirls: Joanie McNeil, Irene Belk, Troy Alexander, Chris Blucher, Linda Curry, Kathy they have not only the talent to march, but also to Huey, Susan Arrington, Head; Holly Kimball, Cathy Metzger, Sally Flemming. give a concert. Myers Park’s Marching Band practices during and after school to obtain the timing and precision necessary to perform the half-time shows. MP Choral Groups Rated Excellent Superior at District, State Contests The trained voice groups at Myers Park are divided into the Choir, Cho¬ rus, Boys’ Glee Club, Girls’ Glee Club, and the Madrigals. Each group is under the direction of the capable music di¬ rector, Mr. Carl Cronstedt. Sopho¬ mores, juniors, or seniors are eligible to apply for these five groups. Performing for the student body, each singing division participated in the Christmas assembly. The traditionally robed choir took part in the candle procession. Singing the “Seven Last Words” in the Easter assembly, the choir possessed a touching quality. Continuing their tradition at gradua¬ tion, the choir sang “You’ll Never Walk Alone” as the seniors reminisced their high school years. The Madrigals is a select group of sixteen M.P. students who have shown excellence in singing. Selected from the choir members by Mr. Cronstedt, this group is very well-known and popular with the students. Invited to perform at Chapel Hill, their outstand¬ ing abilities once again brought them a successful performance. Serving the school to the best of their ability, the vocal groups often partici¬ pated in choral workshops to improve their talent. These workshops have resulted in the quality of perfor¬ mances given by the music groups. Bill Lindeman sings a solo as the choir is content to just listen. The choir fully robed performs for the Memorial Services held in honor of the late Dr. Martin Luther King. This service was conducted by Mr. Rory. Mr. MacGrew directs the Girls’ Choir at Ovens Auditorium where they received a rating of excel¬ lent Choir Officers: Pam Pillsbury, Beth Stickley, Brue Schoonmaker, and OUie Shannon. Bill Wilkerson performs a solo at one of the choir’s many assemblies. 54 Myers Park Clubs Unite to Promote Projects to Make Our School Better No one can ignore the time of year while trying to grasp the moods of a student body. Each season has a sub¬ tle yet far reaching effect on a school, because the season affect us as individ¬ uals. Fall moves adeptly in creating an atmosphere of productivity, unity, and learning. This is reflected in all our school activities especially in the formation of the clubs with an auto¬ matic coherance. A coherance that moves from student to student passing with it the need to identify. Fall is the “remembering time” of year. It is a time when one thinks of the past and future in the same instance. Some¬ times Fall seems to be a melancholy and nostalgic time for those who dream of things that might have been. However, the briskness of Fall contin¬ ually demands considering the urgen¬ cy and importance of the moment. Such a demand demands activity which in turn activates progress. And Myers Park is certainly progressing. Three months. Companionship, soli¬ tude, exuberance, nostalgia, concen¬ tration, relaxation - moods as ever changing as the seasons. This is Fall 1967 . As one of their service projects for this year, V1CA sponsored a car wash. Mike Hefner, an active member, does his share of the work as Jane Nassey waits for her car.

Ambassadors and Keyettes Honor Girls at Welcoming Tea The Keyette Club is a service group sponsored by the local Kiwanis. It was formed two years ago as the second girls’ service club. The Motto of the Keyettes is “To Build.” These two words symbolize the building of a better world through scholarship and citizenship. The main project of the Keyettes is the Sunshine Day Nursery, where twice a week the girls help care for children whose parents work. The Girls Ambassador Civinettes Club has served Myers Park in many ways. Their yearly activities include bowling with the mentally retarded children, pushing the cheer cart at Memorial Hospital, taking a group from Thomp¬ son’s Orphanage on an outing, helping at the Rehabilitation Center and giv¬ ing a “New Girls Tea.” They upheld their motto “Duty makes us do things well, love makes us do them beautiful¬ ly.” Pam Patton and Chris Blucher decorate for the New Girls Tea. Keyettes presented skits followed by refreshments. Sue George serves at the Keyette tea honoring the sophomore and junior girls who were selected as semi-finalists for membership.

Susanna Spencer discusses with girls, who are interested in membership, the point system used by Girls Athletic Association and other qualifica¬ tions required for membership. Joan Grahan lent a helping hand to a new inductee who bobbed for onions. Libby Minnis watched with a firm remembrance of her former induction, a traditional event GAA Offers Girls Good Sportsmanship as Well as Fun Members of GAA participate in a game of volley¬ ball. Old members must meet the required points to remain a member of the club. Mrs. Rotan and Miss Smith, the advisors for GAA, rest for a minute as they watch the induction games with disbelief. The Girls Athletic Association offered ten different sports to any girl wishing to participate. To meet the desires of all interested students, some athletics required vigorous activity, while oth¬ ers required little energy. To obtain points any girl could take part in most club activities, but one must have had a minimum of thirty points to become a member. First semester, six new members were inducted. In October, all interested girls folded boxes and napkins at the Bar-B-Que sponsored by the PTA. Programs at football games were sold and members served at the Winter Sports Banquet. April 25 th, many girls participated in the Charlotte track meet. The Myers Park girls entering in this event were com¬ peting against all other high school girls in Mecklenburg County. The new members of GAA try to get cleaned up after their induction. Old members enjoy the induction ceremony more the second time. Susanna Spencer and Betty Harris reveal by the expression on their faces that the memories of their induction are similar to those of the new inductees. Good sportsmanship is one of the main goals that GAA strives for and the new members prove they are true sportsmen through their good nature. 57 Monogram and Engineers Stress Leadership and Learning Engineers Club has not only provided an interesting program for its mem¬ bers, it has also sponsored projects to benefit the school. The Engineers held a major clean-up project this fall. They cleaned the parking lots, pulled stray grass, and trimmed the shub- bery. Local representatives for such firms as Celanese and Bell Telephone visited the meetings and conducted discussions. The Monogram Club encourages good sportsmanship and school spirit a- mong athletes, students, and faculty, and promotes service in the improve¬ ment of inter-school relationships. Monogram helped make the PTA’s Bar-B-Que a great success. The mem¬ bers directed traffic and delivered the Bar-B-Que. Regular duties included raising and lowering the flag plus printing and selling booster tags. Don Dietrich and Skip Bennett, while on tour with the Engineers Club, pause for a moment to buy a few things in a near by store. The club helps its members plan a future in some phase of engineer¬ ing. The officers of Engineers Club, Sergeant at Arms Vaden Blackwood, President Cleve Stowe, Secretary Skip Bennett and Treasurer Gary Davis, worked together and had a very successful year. Under the supervision of Mr. McEntire more field trips were planned this year than ever before and speakers associated with engineering addressed the club.

Since YWCA sponsors the club, members participated in a car wash to raise money for the organiza¬ tion. At Christmas, Senior Y-Teens gave a party at Amy James Nursery and in February a tea for the faculty was given. In April the girls cleaned out the parking lots. Senior Hi-Y is nationally and locally affiliated with the YMCA. The club was organized for Christian fellowship through service projects in school and community. Members made football and baseball scoreboards so sports- fans could follow the games that were played. Senior Hi-Y maintained the green rock in front of the school and members purchased mirrors and instal¬ led them in the men’s restrooms. The officers for Senior Hi-Y are: Chaplain Tim Beaver, Sergeant at Arms Ed Moore, Vice President Terch Whitesides, Treasurer John Casanova, President Steve Graham, and Secretary David McLaughlin. Last year our Hi-Y placed the large green rock in the front of the school so this year one of their main projects was the maintenance of this rock. Officers of the Senior Y-Teens are: President Emily Blackwood, Vice President Evaline Marshall, Trea¬ surer Peggy Crowell. Y-Teens offers girls new and lasting friendships and they take pride in working together. Officers of Junior Y-Teens are: President Elaine Whitesides, Vice President Betsy Bolen, and Secre¬ tary Tricia Booth. Junior Y-Teens serve the school and community through Christian fellowship. Service Projects. Gary Babcock patiently makes repairs to MP’s rock. The up keep this year became quite expen¬ sive for Senior Hi-Y since the rock constantly changed colors. Susan Teat, a member of Junior-Y-Teens, washes one of the blackboards in the Math Building. The cleaning of the Math Department was the main fall project of Junior Y-Teens. 59 Latin Club members get ready to go to Raleigh for a convention.

MP is Recognized through Latin Club Awards, Other Honor Organizations ensemble, band, orchestral and choral performances. Modern Music Masters is one of the few chapters of the national organization that has com¬ bined music with school service and their accomplishments have brought honor to Myers Park. Honor Society inducted five per cent of the Junior and Senior classes at Myers Park each semester. After first semester, the top ten per cent of the Senior class was inducted at a voluntary assembly. The Latin Club fared well in competi¬ tion this year. An exhibit by the club took first place at the North Carolina State Fair. At the Junior Classical League State Convention in Chapel Hill, the Latin Club won awards in history, word derivatives, and mythol¬ ogy. Qualifications for induction in Modern Music Masters requires at least one semester of a music course. The purpose of the club is to foster a greater and continued interest in solo, Modem Music Masters have their annual banquet This honorary organization has brought many honors to Myers Park. Carl Whitaker, President of the National Honor Society during first semester, conducts the fall induction ceremony. Jane Dunning, the lead singer, performs like a professional actress during her pantomine skit for the honor society induction. Only the top five per cent of the junior and senior classes were inducted in the fall. fiWSiX! 60 Soccer Gains Popularity, Emerging as Year’s Successful New Varsity Sport Soccer was a brand-new varsity sport at Myers Park this year and surprised many people about many things. Stu¬ dents discovered quickly that it was an excellent spectator sport, more interesting and more brutal to watch than football. The team itself, just born last year in intramurals, was a surprisingly excellent one that practi¬ cally devoured all competition. The team and spectators were an ex¬ tremely spirited bunch who took up the feeling about Soccer that only foreigners were known to possess. David Woodall poses beautifully during a lax moment The team, led by devoted members like David Woodall and many others, gained publicity over the intercom and with posters. Once they got the people to watch the first time, there was no need for any additional effort. Word got out and the team gained a large group of very loyal followers, even at away games. Under the fine direction of conscientious Coach Campbell, the team produced and turned in an exceptional season. Soc¬ cer could probably be considered the biggest success of any new sport ever at Myers Park. Junior Bobby Allison boots one in complete solitude. t 61 Players’ Individual Efforts Merge to Produce Unified Team Stokes Van Pelt (66) and Kline McGee set up defense. High school Soccer is moving rela¬ tively slow, as Charlotte—Mecklenburg is the only system in North Carolina with a full Soccer season. Interest is growing however, and Soccer should be recognized in the ranks with other major varsity sports in a few years. There were many highlights during the year. A 2-2 decision win by East manufactured a feeling of revenge which resulted in a 3-1 victory over East on their own home field with their own student referees. The first night Soccer game in Charlotte was played against Christian under the lights in our stadium. A technicality over an uncalled penalty kick in State qualifications ended the year. Personalities made the team what it was. Steve Pourlos, a little Greek hotbox, was most valuable amd most consistent as a sophomore. He was a terror to all when hiding behind his larger teammates. Henly was a calm and quiet type, but high scorer regard¬ less. John Bayne was a tough fullback with lots of wind, unlike David Wood- all. Woodall wasn’t the man to try to score through when he had his breath. Harris lasted well as running was inconvenient within the goalie’s box. In place of physical lung pain he experienced mental anguish with Woodall’s moods and disposition. Stokes Van Pelt was valuable for consistency and overall steady play.

Team with Depth, MP Harriers Take State Championship A tremendous amount of talent, depth, and determination prevailed in shaping the strongest cross-country team in the history of Myers Park, trounced all high school competition, three times with the perfect score of fifteen. Every meet excepting the Davidson Frosh provided at least four team competitors, but none could match the endurance and ability of Myers Park. Junior Gary Allen led the pack most of the year, with seniors David Todd, Lanny Davis, Mike Cald¬ well, and George Wilson providing the pressuring type of competition neces¬ sary in building a superior team. Ju¬ niors Cornell Pride and Les Brown rounded out the nucleus of the team normally responsible for scoring, as in Cross Country only the top five from each school are figured into the scoring. The Harriers’ schedule included six regular season meets, Gary Allen cap¬ turing first out of the first four. The team’s only defeat was dealt by Har¬ grave, a Virginia military school, who overcame all opposition. Two easy victories followed before David Todd came up from behind to win the Conference and lead Myers Park to the title. The Sectional Title also fell to the Harriers with Cornell Pride first. At State Lanny Davis captured fourth, with Pride, Allen, Todd, and Caldwell placing seventh, thirteenth, fourteenth, and sixteenth respectively. George Wilson also placed well as the Mustangs took their second State Championship. Terrific inter-squad competition spelled success through¬ out the season, making it doubtful that such power will ever be seen again at Myers Park. THE SEASON (Low Score Wins) M.P.

The boys had a tremendous reputation to live up to as Myers Park tradition brought on ex¬ pectations of another powerhouse. A team cannot be best year after year, though people expect it to be, and this year’s team was not. The team compiled a disappointing 3-1-6 season, the first losing season a Myers Park football team has experi¬ enced in many years. A number of these losses were not really indicative of how the games were played, how¬ ever. Bad breaks fell on the Mustangs in many games, and small mistakes led to large disasters. Though the team played well overall in most every game, playing especially fine defense, it appeared that the lucky spark was never ignited. Magnificent drives up to a defender’s goal would be stopped abruptly by a loose ball or similar mishap. There were other reasons for the poor season. Mecklenburg produced many powerhouses this year which added to the destruction of the Mustang image. Powerful North was a top contender for the Sectional title. East and South each had unusually strong teams. Gas¬ tonia Ashley also possessed great tal¬ ent. 1968 was also a year for previous victims of the Mustang to revenge the past. This worked as an advantage for them, as they had nothing to lose and everything to gain. The few victories that did fall to the Steed were sweet ones. One cannot forget the upset over Harding, as Myers Park swept over their favored opponent through determination and terrific spirit of the team and the crowd. Despite a poor season, school spirit emerged at Myers Park during Football season that had never been known. If it was losing that brought about the change, it was well worth it.

Coach Purcell began forming his team in fear that he would not find as fine an aerial quarterback as previous years. The past’s Jeff Beaver, Rick Arrington, and Neb Hayden were hard to replace. After much soul-searching he placed Tommy Land in the number one spot, who turned in a respectable record. Land was backed up by a fine Sophomore, Mark Fellers. With this year’s experience, the quarterback po¬ sition should be a strong point in next year’s team. Tim Beaver was trained as quarterback, but switched to the line to turn in an outstanding season. The linemen were tough competition for everyone. Fred Amon, at defensive and offensive tackle, packed meat and muscle and played his best after a skirmish with Bill Tate. Rob Couick was always mean and liked to get in on the roughest plays at defensive end. Bill Tate disregarded personal pain on defense and players discov¬ ered quickly he was not one to be taken lightly. Tom Williams was an¬ other mean lineman who earned an East Carolina scholarship for Football and Wrestling. Tom was the team’s luckiest player, always at the right place at the right time for great glory. Tom Land (3) finds room and breaks for pay dirt around the end against Garinger. Sophomore Mark Fellers (12) passes behind tough, grit-teethed Rob Couick. (83). 66 Fine Receivers Credit to Team Effort Laurens Willard played left guard and was a starter all year. He was an experienced hardknocker and was chosen by his teammates as most valuable lineman. David Moore was known to make unbelievable plays at times, and was the finest defensive lineman. Junior David Withrow played center and could always be counted on in tough situations. Ike Smith, a promising sophomore, played offen¬ sive right guard and defensive middle guard. He was quick to catch the opposition’s moves and tried always to be in the middle of the action. Duff Goforth and Terch Whitesides were depended on heavily to be at the receiving end of all aerial plays. The two shared a record for most recep¬ tions in one game. Goforth had all the moves and terrific speed. Whitesides at split end made the All-County team. Dennis Johnson returned many a punt during the year, Pike Jones was counted on for speed, and Bob Goins lived up to his brother’s reputation. Despite the poor record, the team displayed good spirit and much deter¬ mination and was a credit to Myers Park. Tim Hart takes out rusher as Land (3) nips the ball.

The 1967-68 J.V. Football team, which ended its season with a 7-3 record, was a credit to the fine direc¬ tion of Coach Allen and his assistants, Coaches Peal and Hartman. From a group of boys which included only twenty sophomores, the coaches developed a fine, unified team. How¬ ever, going into the first game with West Mecklenburg, the team was not yet completely organized. The Ponies led 6-0 up to the last two minutes of the game when West connected with a long pass to score. The extra point was good and the Mustangs fell 7-6. Myers Park came back in the second game against South. Led by quarter¬ back Rick Osborne and halfback John Davis, the Ponies thrashed South 30-7. The third game with North left the Ponies with a 6-0 victory in what was supposed to be their toughest game of the year. The Ponies picked up speed Mike Agresta (23) comes up to assist in a take¬ down. Doug London displays beautiful form against North. and tromped Garinger, Olympic, and Second Ward. Their streak was stopped, however, by Ashley as the Mustangs suffered their worst defeat of the season 19-0. The Ponies bounced back against Harding to win 15-0, but were shut down again by an East team 6-0. This hard-fought game was termed “the best of the year” for the Ponies, although the breaks fell to East. Catholic fell 12-7 to end the season. The team’s 7-3, however good, does not justify the effort put out by Coach Allen and the members of the team. Outstanding performances throughout the season were given by Rick Osborne, center Les Todd and flankers Neil Burkhead and Ken Le Blanc. One statistic does credit to the team, however. The Mustangs out- scored their opponents 136-52 with four shut-out games. Neil Burkhead (22) outmaneuvers an entire North team. Rick Osbome looses a last minute pass in good form. Donnie Gilmore (41) leaves two complete teams behind as Neil Burkhead (22) and Steve Poe (85) follow up. 69 Chalking Up Impressive 7-3 Record 70 Student Life 73 Beauties 74 Junior Class 79 Organizations 95 Clubs 101 Sports 109 Basketball 109 Wrestling 115 Swimming 118 Intramurals 120 Through the hushed air the whitening shower descends, At first thin-wavering; tiil at last the flakes Fall broad and wide and fast, dimming the day with a continual flow . . . James Thompson 71 A Winter snow scene gives the campus a quiet, serene appearance. The absence of usual noise and bustle of activity witnessed on regular school days presents a dramatic and unusual impression of Myers Park. A solitary student is seen walking to English class. The winter months demand time for serious studying although concentration is sometimes difficult for the individual. Most students manage to overcome tire daily grind. Dances Relieve Winter Exam Tensions, Conscientious Mrs. Boston, Mr. Oliver and other faculty members enjoy the Christmas party given by tire Future Homemakers of America. As the first wind blows and the thermometer drops, winter sets in at Myers Park. In the air is the feel of basketball games, snowball fights, and fires in the Student Lounge. The atmoshpere has more hustle and bustle as students change classes, rushing to avoid the cold outdoors. Yet, studies lag and minds become easily irritated from indoor confinement. But what is more exciting than gazing out a class¬ room window and seeing snow softly descend to the ground, knowing sled¬ ding and snowmen are in store? Of course, complications do arise: for example, trudging through slush and snow to take College Boards. Christmas brings intense excitement. Everyone looks forward to collecting food for the less fortunate and erecting the Christmas tree in the Student Lounge. Even decorating for the Christmas dance creates a sense of loyalty and cheerfulness. The months pass slowly. February witnesses a relief from dormancy with the Valentine dance. This year Melin¬ da Finch and Barry Brewer reigned as King and Queen with a court of Sophomore, Junior, and Senior cou¬ ples. As spring draws near, Seniors think of winter as the end of a way of life; Juniors, as a time for renewed scholar¬ ship; and Sophomores think of the many winters to come. People listen and dance as the Interpreters go through their motions at the Christmas Dance. Sally Cates, sponsored by the Engineer’s Club, was crowned Christmas Queen. As Doug Furman speaks, Chris Potter attentively listens and arranges his notes during a Speech Class debate. 72 The Cheveiles put on a show at the Valentine Dance for dancing students. The Student Council sold nickel “hearts” to admirers who wished to send them to admirers who wished to vote for the Court. Melinda Finch and Barry Brewer, who received the most hearts, were Valentine Queen and King. Students Receive National Honors National Merit Finalists: FRONT ROW: G. Davis, D. Dietrich, J. Roberts.

Therefore, it is appropriate to ac¬ knowledge these leaders for such qual¬ ities as; leadership, scholarship, char¬ acter, and dependability. The National Honor Society inducts fifteen percent of the Senior Class and five percent of the Junior Class each year. The main purpose of this organization is to instill a desire for learning and to reward achievement where merit is due. The Junior English teachers have se¬ lected senior, Robert Lipscomb as the recipient of the Harvard Book Award. Libbie Andrews has been chosen to receive the D.A.R. Award for good citizenship. Every junior girl is eligible for this recognition by a member of the Charlotte Chapter of the Daugh¬ ters of the American Revolution. The University of the South selected Carl Whittaker during his junior year to be the recipient of the Sewanee Award for Excellence. The Senior Class selects a deserving boy and girl who display the special quality of leadership as recipients of the Danforth Award. In February, interested Juniors participate in the National Merit Testing in hopes of possible scholarships. Twelve seniors have been chosen as National Merit Finalists because of their high ranking scores. Letter of Commendation Win¬ ners are those who ranked lower than the finalists but have been com¬ mended for their distinguished scores. These people have received the following honors: FRONT ROW: David and Steve McLaughlin, appointments to the Air Force and Naval Academies, respectively. SECOND ROW: Hallmark Nominee Martha Pennigar; Carl Whittaker, Sewanee Award for Excellence: Hallmark Nominee Margaret Pierce. Libbie Andrews and Robert Lipscomb have been selected as Danforth Award recipients. Libbie also was the DAR Good Citizen. Robert also received the Harvard Book Award and tire Civitan Citizen¬ ship Award. 78 Dickie Corbett President Juniors Demonstrate Versatile Ability with Enthusiasm The Junior Class returned hopefully awaiting a new, more forceful role in the activities of Myers Park. They quickly elected an all-male slate for their class officers. Moreover they had two promising leaders in the Student. After leading Myers Park in sports they looked for other class responsi¬ bilities. The Art Department had many Gold Key Awards due to the talented ju¬ niors. RUR, The Night Is My Enemy, and Brigacloon all had juniors as leads. The Debate team had many out¬ standing speakers and debaters be¬ cause of the class’s interest. Even though they kept the secret of the theme of Jr.-Sr., they had not failed to put in endless hours of work. As the Junior Marshals helped wiih graduation they knew they took a true part in leading and representing Myers Park. David Archer Vice-President Bob Goins Secretary John Austin Treasurer 79 W.

Winter Accompanied by Excitement of Christmas Break The weeks between Thanksgiving and semester exams are broken by the welcomed Christmas holidays. The Christmas Dance keeps many students decorating up to the last days of school. Drama students are busy pre¬ paring for R. U. R., a successful production. The football team is still working hard, but the end of the season looks close, to the disappoint¬ ment of most Mustangs. Also, too close are the exams, soon after vaca¬ tion, when students cannot seem to get back into the grind. Gary Babcock is interviewed by Buddy Thomason during a football pep-rally. Gary wears the Mustang’s head displaying his willingness to fight for a victory. Publicity committee members give many of their after-school hours to help plan and make posters such as these publicizing the play R. U. R. and the Christmas Dance. 95 Drum Major, David Crawford, leads tlie band in one of its many outstanding half-time shows. Joy Cox energetically cheers helping to spur spirit and enthusiasm in the crowd. Majorettes, Rita Haene and Becky Rollins, express disappointment over the loss at the State Basket¬ ball Finals.

Cheerleaders Spark Winter Athletes This Winter the Varsity Cheerleaders sponsored a “Most School Spirited” pep rally for the wrestling and basket¬ ball teams. They chose one person from each class they thought had shown the most school spirit since school began to give their definition of school spirit and a short spirit talk. In March, when the basketball team advanced to the State Finals, the cheerleaders made the team food to take with them to Greensboro. Stu¬ dents as well as the cheerleaders joined the team that night to support them in the finals. As the team falls behind, Sally Johnston, Marshal Young, and Mary Johnson stand to encourage victory. Mustang head, worn by the cheerleaders, is the mascot representing true Mustang spirit. The mood set by the cheerleaders seems to have been transferred throughout the crowd.

Sizer Advisor As Winter Terminates, Basketball and Spring Fever Strike The Football season is hardly over before another great sport begins. Basketball draws a large crowd of spectators as well as the wrestling matches preceding. Plans are in the making for a Valentine’s Dance, at which time the King and Queen will be announced. A masquerade party was held for the band members only. Participants came to the basketball game dressed for anything but playing their instruments. The band did play, however, but the team was almost unable to continue their game. Many classes have found studying easier out of doors as the weather becomes more beautiful. The Basketball team stands for recognition at a pep-rally: Bob Anders, Billy Tate, Terch Whitesides, Robert Diggle, Tim Beaver, Hoppy Elliot, and Bob Withers. Votes are collected and tallied for the election of Valentine’s King and Queen by members of the Elections Committee. Intermurals Committee Chairmen, Steve Poe and Steve Neal, keep intermural schedule in order. Lettergirls Brenda Stroupe and Linda Curry discuss the seriousness of a loss during a basketball game.

It is a time when one may cast the past aside and look forward to the future. The crisp fresh air gives students the will to attempt all and seek nothing but success. The realizations that were once nothing but dreams gives us a more urgent initiative. The school spirit that buzzes like electricity from one stu¬ dent to the next demands a greater unity and the Myers Park students respond in full. But the ever-present agony still remains. The agony of defeat and failure only encourages us to do better next time and therefore causes a determined student body. Determined in everything; sports, scholarship, leadership, citizenship. It is this same Winter Season that gives us the need to group together and perform service projects creating a unity that links all as one. Vice President of the French Club, Helen Webb and Secretary Larry Prince conduct a meeting discussing their Christmas project Beverly Glover gets assistance with her make-up before going on stage. Tommy Campen, an active Key Clubber, works on the Winter project of painting the press box. 101 MP Students Seek Honor through Speech and Debate Clubs Members of the debating squad Chris Potter, Hugh Odom, and Doug Bums listen intently to the opposing teams statements. Myers Park ' s Debating Team has brought us some very outstanding honors and awards in public speaking. Speech Club officers are Corresponding Secretary Ann Earnhardt, President Edie Seanor, Secretary Paula Cushman, Treasurer Chip Hope, Historian Warren Linde. Myers Park debaters appear before the student body to debate the topic of the year. Many students may gain valuable ex¬ perience in the realm of speech. This club meets on alternating Thursdays and features speakers as well as stu¬ dents on a variety of topics. Some members of the Speech Club are also involved in the National Forensic League which is a selective group of students who are active in competitive speaking. By participating in various tournaments, students earn valuable points for the various NFL degrees. Myers Park won the sweepstakes award at the Wake Forest Tournament early this spring and also took top honors at the Camelia Festival in Columbia, South Carolina. To earn money for the National Tournament in Pittsburgh, four debaters gave a demonstration debate. The Myers Park debaters have been very active in city-wide television debates. Under the leadership of Mrs. Potter, students get an opportunity to develop them¬ selves fully in the areas of speech. Categories for participation include debate, original oratory, extemporane¬ ous speaking, interpretive reading and radio announcing. The Speech Club received the Interclub Council award for the outstanding achievements and honor it brought to Myers Park. Hugh Odom makes a telling point in his presenta¬ tion. The Debate Team won many honors. 102 International Relations Club Formed Red Cross Serves Soldiers in Vietnam The International Relations Club started in 1967 by a group of students interested in learning more about oth¬ er countries and the United States’ relations with them. The club has had such interesting speakers as Dr. Weiatt from Queens College, who discussed life in Russia; and Mrs. Pitalugo, who gave an interesting talk on her coun¬ try, Uruguay. Miss Guffy told the club about education in France while Mrs. Southerland showed slides on South¬ ern Rhodesia. An informal discussion with Ellen Roberts and Johanna Powers, two Myers Park exchange students, added a great deal of insight into the countries they visited. As projects for this year the club has cleaned off the patio, typed cheers for the sophomores, presented a showcase featuring Christmas in other lands, and helped with curb service at the Bar-B-Que. Myers Park’s Junior Red Cross is a junior division of the American Red Cross. Representatives from each homeroom notify the students of the projects and encourage participation. Many projects this year have con¬ cerned our soldiers in Vietnam. Cross¬ word puzzles and carton game books were assembled for wounded soldiers. In an attempt to reach soldiers per¬ sonally, the Red Cross sent billfolds, paint sets, and other such gifts to soldiers on their birthdays. For a Christmas project, the dub collected toys that were distributed to children in foster homes. Their Easter project was to make cheer posters to put in the corridors of hospitals. Last Year’s $150 collected in the annual member¬ ship drive set a record and was con¬ sidered a phenomenal sum. This year Myers Park’s Red Cross thoroughly outdid itself in collecting $480. The officers of International Relations are: Vice President Peggy Crowell, Secretary Caroline Pur¬ nell, President Dickie Glensor, and Treasurer David Norton. At one of their meetings. International Relations invited Dr. Weiatt, the professor of Russian at Queens College, to speak. Myers Park’s Red Cross officers are: Vice President Jo Anne Crilly, President Sue Kennedy, Public Relations Harry Smith, and Secretary-Treasurer Tricia Booth. Having a different project at each meeting, the Red Cross this year concentrated mainly on our soldiers in Viet Nam. They sent birthday presents and also games to our wounded soldiers. 103 French Club officers are Vice President Helen Webb, Treasurer Stephanie Stothart, Secretary Larry Prince, and President Clarice Moussalli. Through their leadership French Club found a very successful year. Numerous programs were planned by the French Club this year. Slides of France were shown to give the stu¬ dents a better understanding of life there and after one of the business meetings, bingo was played and prizes were given. German club has pro¬ moted general interest in and under¬ standing of the German people, lan¬ guage, history, and customs. Members helped during the Myers Park Bar-B- Que. At Christmas time carolers took up a collection which went to the interclub council. Spanish club meetings were varied to keep up stu¬ dents’ interest. Speakers talked on South American countries and Spain. Students presented a play in Spanish about Christmas customs. Sarah Shaw listens intently for her numbers during a game of bingo. For a Winter project the members of French Gub washed blackboards for French teachers desiring this service. French IV members Tom Mundorf, Charlie Wallace, and Tommy Campen have a discussion about tire French language, people, and way of life. In Meetings Students Learn Customs Members of French Gub, Judy Starnes and Anne McQuilkin participate in a game of bingo. Meetings were held the fourth Monday of every month with a new program at each meeting. As their Spring project, French Gub constructed an Faster bulletin board. The German Gub officers are Vice President Ruth Scott, President Norbie Black, and Treasurer Robert Parrott Meeting the first and third Thursday of each month, members found the varied programs interesting and informative. As their Winter project, G erman Gub provided buckets for the SC patio to be used as ash trays. Officers of Spanish Club are: Treasurer Elaine Whitesides, Secretary Dodie Lyle, President Jack Nichols, Vice President Winston Edmond. As a service project money was sent to help a hospital¬ ized Spanish girl. 104 The officers of Future Teachers of America are Treasurer Johnny Clontz, Vice President Mary Lou McFarland, President Susan Miles, and Secretary Sherry Graham. For their first project FTA took phone orders for the annual Bar-B-Que. On January 26 during the mid-term break FTA gave a coffee hour in tire library for the teachers. Various refreshments were offered. Students Strive for Future Occupations Myers Parks Future Teachers offers students an opportunity to learn about the teaching profession. The club’s programs included speakers from all phases of the educational field. One of the major projects of FTA was the annual teachers tea given at semester break. The Myers Park FTA is a part of the County FTA. Three county officers were from the Myers Park club. This county group compiled a scrapbook and presented it to the Myers Park exchange student, Bruce Howe. The Future Homemakers of America is opened to all girls interested in learning how to improve home and community life. Selling iron-on name tags was a main project of the year. Money earned was used for a mother daughter tea. The club sponsored an underprivileged family at Christmas by taking clothes, food, and toys, to them. For the Myers Park Carnival the FHA built a country store booth in which they sold cookies, candies, and paper flowers. The Future Homemakers of America were host¬ esses to a teachers tea during the Christmas Season. The girls prepared all the refreshments served. Officers of Future Homemakers are Vice President Nancy Woods, Secretary Francis Culp, Treasurer Susan Miles, Reporter Debbie Watts, and President Karen Brown. The members receive training in how to improve home and community life. 105 Mary Jones, an active member of FHA, prepares to assist in serving at the teachers tea. Interact Plants Shrubs by Mobile Units to Brighten School With “Service above self " as their guide, the Interact Club made their fifth active year quite successful. In the fall of the year, the members of the club distributed football sched¬ ules, sold booster tags, sponsored pep rallies and sold Myers Park license plates. The license plates, which were made by the club members them¬ selves, gave the club its first profit. During the Winter season, Interact members sold Christmas cards to be sent to the soldiers in Vietnam. An¬ other project which pertained to “overseas” was the Foreign Exchange Banquet. Myers Park students were able to buy tickets to this dinner to meet the foreign exchange students from all over Charlotte and to experi¬ ence foreign entertainment. Interact combined with the three other service clubs at Myers Park for the project “Bottles for Boy’s Town.” Boys are given a chance to apply to the Interact Club three times yearly. The applications are screened by the fac¬ ulty and the members of the club before a final decision is made. 1st ROW: President Austin, Vice President Horney, Secretary Mundorf, Treasurer Watts, Gale. 2nd ROW: Junior Director Hope, Thompson, Church, Nichols, Dunaway, Markham. 3rd ROW: Barnhardt, Thomas, Hawes, Lipford. 4th ROW: Brown, Martin, Blumenthal, Odom, Schoonmaker. 5th ROW: Sergeant at Arms Stout, McLaughlin, Ranson, Durham. 6th ROW: Austin, Burton, Appleton, Taylor. 7th ROW: Mr. Nichols, Mr. Peel, Seltzer, Senior Director Whitaker, Whitesides.

Interact provides an opportunity for young men to work together in world fellow¬ ship dedicated to service and international under¬ standing. Scott Verner, Hugh Odom, Rick Mundorf, and Tom Markham actively participate in Interacts beautification project. 106 A mbassadors and Keyettes Become Hostesses for Teachers and New Girls Mary Catherine Rendleman, a member of Ambassa¬ dors, displays her skill as she helps to entertain at the teachers banquet. The banquet was held in February and followed the " George Washington” theme. Keyettes honored the Sophomore girls at a Tea. The purpose was to introduce the Keyette club to the new girls and explain the purpose for the formation of a second girls club at MP. Ambassadors showed their apprecia¬ tion for the faculty with a car wash and Teachers Banquet. Another Am¬ bassador project helped to promote school spirit. They sold pom pons and basketball stickers, and they “swal¬ lowed Ashley’s green wave” by selling green Kool-Aid during the lunch per¬ iods. Ambassadors, sponsored by the Senior Civitans, also took an active role in Civitan functions. This year they were hostesses to the District Civitan functions. Ambassadors re¬ ceived the Service Club award from Interclub Council. As their winter project, Keyettes cleaned out and painted the restrooms at the stadium. At Christmas, this club sponsored a family by donating clothing and food. They gave toys to the children as well as a Christmas tree. The girls also straightened out the English Depart¬ ment office. Keyettes send two repre¬ sentatives each Thursday to the Ki- wanis Club luncheon. Using the colors purple and gold, the Keyette Club strives to build a better student body, school, and community. Keyettes hold welcoming meeting for new sophomores prior to the Welcoming Tea in the new cafeteria.

Key Sponsors Student Faculty Game and Service Projects The Key Club, composed of thirty five boys, continued to help better Myers Park this year through its ser¬ vice projects and other duties. The Key Club was responsible for repaint¬ ing the press box and cleaning up around the football stadium at the beginning of the school year. In addi¬ tion to publishing the Key Club Direc¬ tory, containing over $1500 worth of advertisements sold by the members, the Key Club also presented a pep rally skit and helped with delivery at the annual Bar-B-Que. Also, the Key Club sponsored the Student-Faculty Basketball Game and presented out¬ standing citizens speaking over the intercom during Key Club Week. In a joint meeting with two other service clubs, the Key Club helped plant shrubbery and clean up the campus in the fall. Other service projects includ¬ ed painting new signs in the gym for Myers Park’s different opponents, pro¬ viding taped music in the cafeteria during lunch, and collecting thousands of bottles in the Boys Town fund drive. Steve Poe, Ken Coe, Will Bethune, and Dickie Corbett work together to trim the shrubbery. Sponsored by the local Kiwanis, Key Club strives to provide worthwhile services not only to the school but to the community as well. The lovely, spirited cheerleaders contribute so much to our sports. Not only do they encourage good sportsmanship but they also distribute spirit among the spectators. These lovely cheerleaders were selected from tire Key Club to appear at the annual student faculty game sponsored by that club. Tim Ferguson, an active member of the Key Club, participates energetically in tire Winter project of painting the press box. Hot Hands Secure Eighteen Victories Tim Beaver (54) taps as John Austin awaits the ball. In a “rebuilding” year, the Mustangs compiled 18 wins against 8 losses. The Mustangs opened-up with seven non¬ conference games, winning three and losing the other four by a total of 16 points. At West Charlotte, the Mus¬ tangs fell 60-59 in a very close game to the dominant Lions. Bob Anders had 22 points and John Austin added 17. Next, the Steeds defeated Durham at the Durham High gym. The follow¬ ing night, Myers Park lost to Greens¬ boro Page because of poor foul shoot¬ ing. Returning home, the Mustangs ran past Garinger 54-47. Bob Anders scored 17 points and Bill Tate made 13. In the fifth game, East won 50-47 in a game troubled by shooting and officiating. The Mustangs ended the pre-conference season games at Burl¬ ington, where they split two games against Burlington and Reynolds. A- gainst Burlington, John Austin and Bob Anders scored 1 7 and 16 points respectively. The following night, the team fell 56-49 to Reynolds.

The latter was a battle, but fine defense spelled victory for the Stangs. Bob Anders had 19 points and Bill Tate wrapped things up with two layups late in the last quarter. Next to fall to the Mus¬ tangs was North. John Austin and Fred Lapish led the scoring with 18 and 14 points. After having the game with Ashley snowed out, Myers Park returned to defeat West 60-55. Tim Beaver was high with 19 points. Harding fell next to the mounting Mustang powerhouse, 67-53. Wins over South and Olympic brought the tally to eight straight victories, five conference among them. Led by Bob Ander’s 26 points, the Mustangs downed Second Ward again, 60-57. The Mustangs extended their winning streak to thirteen games and clinched the conference title with their last five conference games, including in the winning streak. The team had matured considerably. 1968 Varsity Basketball: KNEELING: Tate, Whitesides, Austin, Elliot, Corbett. STANDING: Perry, Edwards, Anders, Beaver, Hayes, Diggle. 110 Anders (41) lays one in to opponent’s aggravation. Victorious Season In the conference tournament at Park Center, the Mustangs defeated Hard¬ ing in the first game. Second Ward, however, snapped that Mustang four¬ teen game winning streak despite a brilliant effort by Bob Anders with 25 points. This did not overly discourage the team, as their fine record had already gained them a berth in the State Tournament to be played in Greensboro. This was one case in which tournament play had not des¬ troyed the chances of a team which had rightfully deserved a shot at the big title. Anders (41) shows up South’s best with a jumper shot. Quick and maneuverable John Austin (15) puts in two. Mark Edwards open-mouths two points against Garin ger.

In the final round at Greensboro, the Mustangs met Dudley High of Greens¬ boro. In a hard fought and hot-shoot¬ ing game, Myers Park edged a 65-62 win. Bob Anders and Tim Beaver led the scorers with 21 and 22 points respectively. The following night Wilmington de¬ molished Myers Park’s championship hopes 64-48. All-State Kim Huband’s fine shooting plus a cold night for the Mustangs spelled defeat. In the con¬ solation game, Myers Park was beaten by Raleigh Broughton. Robert Diggle (33) passes in the Green and White game. This year’s Mustangs was a team that surprised many people with its great¬ ness. The team began slowly and appeared to be another disappoint¬ ment as football had turned out to be. Veteran Coach Jim Hartman rallied the team, however, and the relatively inexperienced boys were determina¬ tion itself. Comprising great unity and outstanding squad leadership of play¬ ers such as Bob Anders, Tim Beaver, and Bill Tate, the team left behind them a year Myers Park can certainly be proud of. Happiness is getting ten after a very sweet victory. Versatile Stowe Perry (24) takes time from scrapping to add needed points. Lapish (44) snags a rebound under the watchful eyes of Diggle (32) and Perry. 112 Two North JV s attempt to comer a ‘Stang, but Tom Land (22) steals as opponent turns his attention to sophomore Pike Jones, fail.

The loss was slight: 53-52 in a three minute overtime. Salt was also rubbed into the wound due to an official’s failure to recognize Myers Park’s call for time-out in the last three seconds of overtime. Such was the team’s beginning. The squad, with starters Charles Wallace, Steve Sharman, Alan Mayfield, Mark Fellers, and Willie Leary, would pick up speed and demand respect from all opposition. The boys met Greensboro Page for their second game, which marked the beginning of a four-game winning streak. The streak included a tough but exciting game with East and a delightful trounce of Garinger, always the arch rival. Second Ward was loom¬ ing like a dark cloud, however, and would give the team its most devas¬ tating loss of the season. The loss was a hard blow to the rising moral, setting the team up for two more consecutive defeats by North and West. Junior Varsity Basketball Team: Sharman, Yoos, Jones, Fellars, Land, Wallace, Mayfield, Cass, Evans, Clinard, and Weathers. 113 Lively Season Ends Disappointingly as Steeds Fall in Close Tournament Final Reincarnation came to the disap¬ pointed J.V.’s as they met Harding and Olympic. Trounces of 71-34 and 60-28 were sweet victories that pre¬ pared the boys mentally for a rematch with powerful Second Ward. South was to squeeze by them in the last ten seconds of play, however, as the eager team had gotten itself into foul trou¬ ble. The respected power of Second Ward was a considerable fear. The wounds were still open from the last game. The boys rallied, however, and did not make mistakes as before. Second Ward fell 61-49 in the most coveted, re¬ vengeful game of the year. The season came to an end with a close loss to North, a cold, slow defeat by Ashley, two good victories over West and Harding, and revenge over Ashley in a rematch. The J.V.’s were barely squeezed out by North in the Southwestern 4-A Tournament. A tap-in by North as the overtime buz¬ zer sounded destroyed hopes of the talented team reaching the finals. It was a disappointing end to a re¬ spectable season. The boys had shown, however, that they could beat anybody on a given night. With a few breaks a State Championship could have materialized. Mark Fellers (40) strains for control of the tap. Junior Charles Wallace (44) slips by for tw o as Fellers (40) follows in case. Wallace (44) and Mark Fellers (40) prepare to recover a rebound that wasn’t. Sharman (20) adds two to the 53-43 rout of North. Myers Park’s JVs dominated the boards against North. Soph Mark Fellers (41) fires an outside corner shot. 114 Heavyweight Tom Williams inflicts pain on his opponent to get in position for a pin. Magilla was John Davis finds himself on bottom for a short undefeated. while. Wrestlers Rush to Undefeated Season, State Championship The 1968 Grapplers produced a State Championship team this year in the winning Myers Park tradition. The team went undefeated through regular season competition, the first such wrestling team produced in the West¬ ern District of North Carolina. With this meat in their stomachs, they destroyed all District competition for a victory that qualified seven Mus¬ tangs for the State Championship. These seven boys from Myers Park were more than any other school had ever qualified, and resulted in nearly doubling the score of their closest opponent as they shined in the sea¬ son’s finish. There were obviously many stars in this truly great team. Bruce Thomp¬ son, a senior, went undefeated. Bruce was voted popularly by his teammates as Captain and was co-receiver of the Sanaford Award. He climaxed the season as district champion and State Champion. Tommy Williams, another senior, went undefeated through two seasons. Magilla led the team in points, was district champion, and also was awarded the Sanaford Award for excellence. An unfortunate injury, however, kept him from going to State. Tom was the spectator’s favor¬ ite, as each humorous “Magilla want nanna” demonstrated at every match. TOP: Tom Coppedge suffers considerable embar¬ rassment. BOTTOM: The tide turns as a pin Second year veteran Rick Lee exercises skill and strength as he easily overpowers his luckless revenge materializes. opponent. 115 Undefeated Thompson, Williams Lead Onslaught, Seven Qualify for State Fitzhugh Stout, a senior who was relatively unrecognized at the season’s start, improved steadily through the season with a respectable four pins and four decision wins. He qualified for the State and took a second in his class. Ken Coe, another senior, got a slow start but like Stout pulled up and took second in the District and pro¬ duced will at the State meet. Dennis Chapman finished second in the dis¬ trict and also placed well in the state. There were many other fine grapplers on the team. Jerry Hedgecoe wrestled for his first year, and accomplished a phenomenal district championship and third in the State. Howard Widis went undefeated during the regular season, but was sadly upset in District quali¬ fications. He was not able to go to State. Bob Parnell’s record was the same as Howard’s demonstrating that tournament play is often unfair. Senior Fitzhugh Stout finished second in the state. Jeff Chandler pauses to plan his strategy while opponent displays his distaste at giving up riding time.

Anguish shows in opponent’s face as Bruce Thompson pulls a typical quick pin. Coaching, Individual Desire Blend in Superior Wrestling Jr. Howard Widdis takes control of a running opponent Greg Currie rounded out the seniors of this year’s team. Greg’s season was one of considerable disappointment as he was plagued with knee trouble throughout the year. Greg still pro¬ duced well, however, totaling some forty-five points for the team. Tim Ferguson and Robert Ross acted as replacements and added depth to the already strong team. Rick Lee. a junior, produced a very good season. He accumulated ten wins, placed sec¬ ond in the District, and finished strongly in the State Tournament. Jeff Chandler added many points to the team, while Jerry Hedgecoe was unde¬ feated for his four matches. It is very unlikely that any team in the future will be able to match the excellence of the 1968 Wrestling Team. A team can only be so good, and this team was standing at the top. Next year veterans Lee, Widis, Hedge¬ coe, Ferguson, Coppedge, and others will return to hopefully produce an¬ other fine season. The next year will be a difficult one, however, for other schools in the District will have ma¬ tured and make tough competition. Still, Myers Park will always have this season to remember if others fail. A sincere congratulations to an extreme¬ ly fine season. Portrait of an athlete: Currie in position of mind.

Conference Championship Seized by Sophomore Jack Morrow displays excellent entry form. A new coach and a renewed team spirit led the Myers Park swimming team to a conference championship and a deceiving fourth place in the State Meet this year. Coach Gene Link, new to the team and the school this year, must be recognized as one responsible for much of the team’s success. Never having coached swim¬ ming before and unfamiliar with the minor sport, he took it upon himself to learn everything, even up to the strokes used and practicing them him¬ self. He could be seen after practice learning how to dive, and became rather amazingly proficient rapidly. His drive restored a respect and a spirit that had been lost in recent years. Senior Gene Stallings once again showed he could be tough. He put meat into the four hundred freestyle, while Edward Godwin usually dom¬ inated the fifty free in dual meets. Bill Ranson swam in the fifty and hundred free and wherever a strong man was needed. Senior Doug Gubbins con¬ tended strongly in breastroke and helped build the medly relay, one of the strongest in the state. Junior Tom Rehm swam individual medly, hundred fly, and the fifty free in tough meets. Teague Skaggs was a strong fill-in for the freestyle relay along with Kemp Dunaway and Tim Turner who added depth. Steve Hawes was a fine backstroker and free-style man. Sophomore Backstroker Buddy Brietz pulls into the wall in the medly relay. Senior Breaststroker Gubbins leans off the blocks just as Brietz makes contact. THE SEASON M.P.

Fine things are expected out of Brietz next year, along with an¬ other sophomore, Ken Skaggs. The diving department was once again the strongest in the State this year. This year Senior Steve McLaughlin was back and a new diver, Jack Morrow, also joined the team. The two were undefeated in dual meets, trading the first place back and forth between them. In the State Meet, Morrow captured first place with a score of 328.65 and McLaughlin fin¬ ished second with 308.65. Both were nominated for High School All-Ameri¬ can. Most Valuable Gene Stallings (left) and Ken Skaggs leave the blocks for the 400 freestyle distance event. Gubbins stretches out for a fine start. Mr. Skaggs and Coach Niver, looking on, were a great help all year. Steve Hawes and Ed Godwin begin the 100 freestyle. Both were valuable assets. Steve McLaughlin, nominated for High School All-American, pauses before a dive at the state meet. 119 Goins strains every muscle in a melodramatic intramural Bob Goins plays brilliant pass coverage over the world reknown receiver Poe. surge. Extended Intramural Program Prompts Sportsmanship, Harold Muse inflicts terror rushing on his victims. A quarterback, a ball, a good back, and no receiver. The Myers Park Intramural prog ram this year was an unknown but bene¬ ficial program providing recreation for boys not participating in varsity sports. Directed by two teachers new to the school this year, Mr. Warren Cox and Mr. Ed. Good, the program was more extensive than previously but was still lacking in support among the many. Despite the apparent lack of interest, the intramurals attracted good com¬ petition in football, basketball, and tennis. Wrestling intramurals were also planned for but never materialized due again to lack of interest. Perhaps next year active participation of more students will make the program more worthwhile for the money allotted and the inconvenience to the direc¬ tors. Being attacked by two acquaintances would be interesting, but avoiding the situation becomes more important. 120 Bob Goins attempts the impossible: catching the ball. A quarterback fakes everyone out: throwing to a tree. In contemplative solitude Jim Jeffries studies grass. Amusement for All The football intramurals attracted a number of boys, with tournament play deciding who was to play the championship. “Pat’s Blue Ribbon” squeeked by the “Whalloping Winos” 16-0 in a hung-over game. A Junior team, very appropriately termed the “Squirrels,” swept the basketball in¬ tramurals. Gene Horton and Tommy Markham dominated tennis with their astounding skills. Unpopular rejects from a low-budget horror movie rush an imaginary Y.A. Tittle in hopes of gaining reknown. Steve Poe approaches the tee wit!) career ambitions, such as finger amputation. Nonconformity reigns as the ball is thrown behind the receiver, not the norm. 121 122 Student Life 125 Senior Class 131 Organizations 185 Clubs 189 Sports 197 Track 197 Baseball 200 Golf 203 Tennis 205 Closing Section 208 Sponsors Patrons 212 Acknowledgements 216 Spring, with that nameless pathos in the air Which dwells with all things fair, Spring, with her golden suns and silver rain, Is with us once again . . . Henry Timrod 123 College Boards, Sadie Hawkins Dance The school atmosphere changes with the coming of spring. A sense of re¬ newal permeates the student body. In¬ side and out, new life abounds. Excite¬ ment, expectation, and laughter are present as thoughts gaily turn from the “grind” to the inviting outside. Mus¬ tangs manage to take spring fever in stride and work in relaxation. Minds tend to wander as unfeeling teachers continue assigning term pa¬ pers. Libraries and bookstores become beehives of activity. In March Juniors have their first change at College Boards. The results of this test are anxiously awaited. Track, tennis, and baseball keep the boys busy with practice while the girls have their inning at Sadie Hawkins Day. The dance featured Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs who put on a show like never before. The mood set by the dance and the privilege of wearing shorts made it easier for students to attend classes on the Saturday after Sadie Hawkins. Each year the Thespians delight the Myers Park student body with the theater-in-the-round. This year “The Night Is My Enemy” absolutely cap¬ tivated the audience with its “hair- raising” mystery. During a production presented in the round, the audience is so close to the play’s action that it becomes personally involved with the characters. The suspense of “The Night is My Enemy” was overwhelm¬ ing. Spring has arrived as seen in the blooming of the flowers. This flower is only one of the many signs that appears to indicate a renewal of life on campus. Each person is challenged to discover the new “me.” Students relish and relax in the freedom that has been presented by Spring. Students are seen casually walking to and from classes. Myers Park has two excellent programs by which its students are able to realize their citizenship in the whole world. The Charlotte Exchange and the American Field Service programs afford foreign and American youth to share in common experiences. Cathy Harkey talks about her experiences at the Foreign Exchange Assembly. The Thespians present the breathtaking drama “The Night is My Enemy.” The audience become a part of the honor as the actors became the characters they are portraying. Debbie Hutchison, Lloyd Rose, Bany Bell, and Leslie Fox dramatically interpret their roles. During his lunch period Ty Church sees a new outlook on the subject as he chooses one science book from among many in the school library. 124 To everyone’s delight Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs sing a medley of their hits during the Sadie Hawkins Dance. These terrific performers never stop entertaining a large crowd at Park Center. The dance, sponsored by the Student Council, encouraged all girls to invite an eligible boy to share the weekend of dining, dancing, and picnicking. Recipients of Letters of Commendation are, as follows: Stephanie Stothart, Libbie Andrews, Risa Levine, Ruth Scott Carl Whittaker, Ward Bursley, Robert Parrott Sue Wright (not pictured). Laurens Willard and Hank Williams finally find a way to win, although illegally, the Student-Faculty Basketball Game. Each year students and teachers join in a game of fun and frolic to entertain an audience. 125 A Physics lab is an excellent opportunity to discover the complexity of the world in which we live. Jay Lee experiments with a spectroscope and wave machine. Spring saw many changes occur at MP. The most unusual one was the cultivation of Mr. Barber’s garden. Such plants as parsley, sage, and thyme were grown. Plus pieces of sculpture designed by the “budding” artists decorated the small plot. Eddie Burnsides and Reggie Caldwell work for the common effort. The Cushion Concert and Carnival Provide Recreation for Ambassador Carol Baucom delicately paints flow¬ ers on someone’s knee. This booth was one of many at the carnival. The choir even performed “marriages” for couples who wished to be sere¬ naded by the illustrious group. Spring fever is an obstacle which students must overcome to survive third quarter. The faculty combats an illusive force which infiltrates study with such requests as, “How about having class outside today?” Teachers arm themselves with their defense- report cards. This year’s Easter vacation which usual¬ ly grants a reprieve from study is being used to make up snow days. Groans can be heard from one end of campus to the other as school remains open. “We’re having a carnival, Myers Park’s first!” announces the Inter-Club coun¬ cil. A certain percentage of profits goes to the Inter-Club scholarship. Every interested club, hoping to clev¬ erly outwit any competition, has made elaborate plans for a booth. The public is invited to join in sponge throwing, flower painting, car bashing, and even ice cream making. The carni¬ val is a center of fun and entertain¬ ment for all habitual window shop¬ pers, hippies, rabble rousers, regular students, and moms and dads. For an unusual evening, the Senior class invites everyone to the Cushion Concert. Folk singers, comedy acts, and rockin’ band groups provide en¬ tertainment for a lively evening. Every music enthusiast expects to be there sitting or standing, stag or drag, dead or alive. Miss Bost and her history class try desperately to cope with spring fever and to properly cover the World History course at the same time. Whether the latter can be accomplished while the former is remedied is a doubtful question. 126 The untimely, tragic death of Dr. Martin Luther King brought a time for careful reflection. Mr. Rory spoke at a memorial service arranged by MP students. Restless Students Student Council elections is a time of nerves, excitement, and re-evaluation. Coleman Smith de¬ cides to ride his tricycle in support of his candi¬ date. Mary Catherine Rendleman, Scott Verner, Neal Schwantes, and Doug Gubbins play a special arrangement at the Cushion Concert Because of the variety of talent offered, anyone could find their “thing” during a relaxing evening. Myers Park strives to orient its students on the common experiences shared by all. Sue George, Susan Neal, Susan Arendel, and Susan Miles find several things in common at the Sophomore Tea given by Keyettes. Each Spring the club invites Sophomore girls to become acquainted with its members and its functions. Edward Lowe, Bunny Alexander, Jim Danbury, and Ward Bursley listen as Doug Gubbins and Scott Verner serenade everyone passing by on a lazy. Spring afternoon. 127 As the Junior Class learned this year, giving a Jr.-Sr. is such a time-consuming, frenzied business. Will Webb, Baxter Hutcheson, and helpers work diligently to complete their mural. Somehow, most plans are completed before the actual night. Along with Spring As the school year draws to a close, a final, hurried rush of activity begins. The last weeks are the time for some of the most important events of the year. The Sidewalk Art Show affords par¬ ents and students the opportunity to observe and purchase the work of Myers Park’s art students. The show brings forth nearly every picture done by the students during the 1967-68 school year for every art student is allowed to enter at least one picture. The student artists profit substantially from the sale, as each student keeps all but ten percent of the sale price. The Junior-Senior Prom given for the Seniors by the Junior Class provides the crowning touch for the year’s social activities. The decorations based on fairy-tale stories climax twelve weeks of intense work. Couples stroll through the various rooms reaping the harvest of much endeavor. To Michele Glen- ham and Fred Barden the New Cafeteria becomes a fairyland. The Sidewalk Art Show creates more excitement for the habitual browser, the amateur art enthusiast, and the sensitive loafer than any other school event The Show exhibits the art work produced within the year. Many parents, students, and just interested people come to look, buy, and admire the sculpture, needlework, blockprints, and paintings. The money earned finances both the students’ and art department’s various causes. The sound of the bagpipes introduces the audience to the flavor and spirit of BRIGADOON. The bagpipes shove the hands of the clock back into the time of Old World beliefs and traditions. For after all, one day lived in the town of Brigadoon is like one hundred years in any other place. 128 Come the Mustang Traditions that Complete the Memories The Chorus and Orchestra combined their talents to make this year’s musi¬ cal, Brigadoon, a great success. Lerner and Lowe’s Brigadoon is a fanciful play deriving its name from an imagin¬ ary Scottish town. The cast and crew of Brigadoon rehearse for many nights whipping the play into shape. Well over two hundred people are responsi¬ ble for the production of Brigadoon as the set crew, chorus, lighting crew, prop men, and many others work with Mr. McGrew during the long hours of preparation. Finally it’s opening night, and Brigadoon begins three nights of successful performances. The last few weeks seem agonizingly long to everyone, and the Seniors begin to doubt if graduation will ever arrive. But, graduation does come, and with it comes a feeling of relief for past accomplishments, and a feeling of anticipation toward future challenges. The very existence of Brigadoon was threatened with the hatred of Harry (Bobby Crump) for the town. The result was the killing of Harry. In this scene the men try to rationalize the necessity of Harry’s death; each person vows not to tell the other town folk. Buddy Thomason and Irene Belk have been selected by the Senior Class to be Mr. and Miss Myers Park. It is felt that these people possess the qualities which exemplify the best attributes at Myers Park—Character, Service, Loyalty, and Dependability. Christi Clanton straightens Debby Thompson’s collar minutes before the processional. Each Senior begins realizing that a way of life is drawing to a close. Memory’s door, however, will never completely close. 129 Overview We look beyond. Summer in its fullness comes. Tomorrow’s promise beckons with knowledge. Like a beacon to light our path. Three years Filled. Toil, laughter, youth’s nectar a heady wine Filling memory’s cup of time when hand grows weak. Proud Thanksgiving We are ready for Life’s ever-changing moods. The door stands open And we enter to seek. Mimi McDonald and Laurie Newton find a few moments to chat before that second bell rings. These precious moments crystalize as time stands still. Douglas Deal and Larry Carter enjoy a pep rally. Though in a crowd the individual Mustang must stand out Irene Belk, intoxicated with victory, hugs Billy Tate. A year at MP is mixture of wins and losses. Temporarily abandoned for a snow holiday, TARTUFFE patiently awaits its owner’s return. Totally absorbed in taking notes, Wray Abercrom¬ bie discovers a new world opening before him. On Halloween one Band member decides to toot Fall, Winter, Spring. The individual walks this his code of living. Many people might join his campus-growing with its ever-changing moods, ranks. 130 Buddy Thomason President Fitzhugh Stout Vice-President Marshall Young Secretary Seniors Surpass Previous Classes with Mustang Spirit Myers Park has always prided itself on the excellence of its senior classes, and the Class of 1968 has followed tradi¬ tion by surpassing the previous classes. For three years they have benefited from the advantages put before them and in return have supported and contributed to Myers Park in all pos¬ sible ways. Through enthusiasm and effort, the Senior Class has exhibited true Mustang spirit while adding im¬ petus to underclassmen. Spirited “Se¬ nior Mustangs” have led and support¬ ed the school from the stands as well as from the fields. As in the past years, this class had its share of excellent athletes. National Merit Scholars, various winners of many other scholarships, Gold Key art winners, and talented musicians. The drama department can boast of its talented seniors who contributed en¬ thusiastically to the many productions given this year with “Brigadoon” high¬ lighting the year. The Myers Park Fair found Seniors working and supporting the clubs to which they belonged. Under the leadership of able Class and Student Council officers, the Seniors worked to unify Myers Park and keep it in the number one position in all activities. Mark Edwards Treasurer 131 One of the most important facets of Myers Park life centers around our Foreign Exchange Students. Each year several Myers Park families have an unforgettable experience in interna¬ tional living by hosting foreign stu¬ dents under the American Field Ser¬ vice and the Charlotte Exchange Stu¬ dent Program. Both the students and host family are carefully screened. Patience and a sense of humor are necessities in helping the new brother or sister adjust to an entirely new mode of living. Myers Park students are given the opportunity to visit families abroad during the summer months. They, too, experience an entirely new way of life while adopting new customs and making new friends. In both groups of students, each is emphatic when describing the experience as the most memorable of their lives. They have accepted and participated in a different society while gaining in in¬ ternational understanding. Kirsten Bolling comes from Norway to enjoy the Myers Park campus with her sister Cathy Harkey. Emily Seldon and Nina Holbeck from Denmark enjoy the various advantages of Myers Park. Bruce Howe from New Zealand and Rick Ericson participate actively in Myers Park life. English wit enters the life of Susanna Spencer with the arrival of Colan Appelton from England. Colan Appelton and Nina Holbeck create interna¬ tional understanding with their contributions to Myers Park.

To become Secretary of the Student Council was Cecily’s desire. The Elections Committee Supervised Spring Student Council Elections The Elections Committee did a fan¬ tastic job this Spring in supervising Student Council Elections. Students wishing to run for an office were required to have a certain average. The students voted in homeroom for the candidate they wished nominated. The two candidates with the greatest percentage of the votes became nomi¬ nees. A special assembly was held, at which the entire student body was given the opportunity to meet the nominees. Following the assembly the student body returned to homeroom to cast ballots. The following morning the new Student Council Officers were announced. Final candidates for Student Council elections are assembled for the presentation of their campaign speeches to the entire student body in the gymnasium. The seriousness of the moment was broken by the highly original skits given by avid supporters. 185 August Delivery Requires Staff Return After Graduation Diligently working to make the annual a success, the MUSTANG staff com¬ piled nine months of school activity and memories into an annual. Working in unity, the MUSTANG Staff worked towards retaining the high standard of previous yearbooks. This year the students voted to have a September distribution in order to cover all spring events. Selecting an original cover, theme, and layout were major decisions for the staff. Consisting of eleven major staff and seventeen minor staff members, the staff worked under the capable leader¬ ship of Robin Kimbrel, Editor-in- Chief. Majo r staff members were each re¬ sponsible for a specific section, while the minor staff aided in writing cap¬ tions, copy, and heads. Taking on a big responsibility, the major staff worked to make the yearbook live up to its high expectations. The Editor-in-Chief, Robin Kimbrel, was responsible for the progress made on the yearbook. She co-ordinated all literary work in the annual, as well as designing the opening and closing sec¬ tions. Guiding the major staff mem¬ bers at staff meetings, she helped and encouraged each member. Receiving money for the MUSTANG and keeping financial records Jane Dunning, the Business Manager, had a large responsibility. She handled all matters concerning advertising and billing of the yearbook. The Class Editors co-ordinated the entire class section and were responsi¬ ble for all students’ pictures. The Clubs, Organizations, and Student Life Editors all worked to recapture activities at Myers Park. The Faculty- Curriculum Editor presented the op¬ portunities offered by our academic program. The Sports Editor made coverage on all sports. The Photog¬ raphy Editor had the responsibility of seeing that all the assigned pictures were taken. Clothed appropriately for hours of strenuous planning Steve McLaughlin works ardently as Sports Editor. Deep concentration is required by Jane Dunning in the management of the MUSTANG funds as Business Manager. Robin Kimbrel, Editor-in-Chief of the MUSTANG, spends many hours after school co-ordinating the annual. Christina Spence, Betsy Therrell, and Susan Trice ham-it-up while busy at work for the major staff. 186 Minor Staff: Frank Fite, Christina Spence, Susan Trice, Peggy Crowell, Carol Allison, Nancy King, Betsy Therrell, Connie Harris, Steve Poe, Susan Rose, Rhonda Seegal, Linda Valenstein, Lucy White, Anne Hayes, Lee Walker, Debbie Gary, Rusty Kelly. Kathy Howe, Sophomore Class Editor, is respon¬ sible for class pictures and activities involving sophomores. C • mmsmm y. • Robin Patterson, Clubs Editor, marks contacts to be enlarged. She is responsible Mary Lou MacFarland, Senior Class Editor, checks Senior Portraits against for covering all activities sponsored by clubs at Myers Park. Student Activity Sheets which compile Senior Statistics. Ruth Buker, Junior Class Editor, is responsible for identifying and alphabetizing class pictures. Posting a schedule every week of the assigned pictures is one of the duties of Bill Venning, Photography Editor. Under the firm leadership of Mr. Kiser, the MUSTANG Staff strove to accomplish their objec¬ tive. 187 Photographers Become Adept in the Techniques of Processing Negatives The photographers were responsible for taking all pictures, developing film, making contacts, and enlarging some five hundred pictures to be used in the 1968 MUSTANG. Many after¬ noons and nights were spent in the darkroom developing film. Gene Stal¬ lings, head photographer, was in charge of making sure all film was processed and the chemicals were re¬ turned to the refrigerator after use. Each photographer was assigned pic¬ tures of school activities on Friday for the next week. After his picture was made the photographer had to process the film and make contacts. These contacts were sent to the annual room where major staff members would mark the contacts they wished en¬ larged, and then return them to the darkroom. The photographer enlarged the designated contacts, a process which takes forty-five minutes to an hour for one contact. These enlarge¬ ments had to be soaked in chemicals, washed in clear water, and finally dried. Perhaps the least publicized, but extremely hard-working MUS¬ TANG photographers, took many outstanding pictures, and without their co-operation the MUSTANG would not be a reality. Mr. Browne, Advisor to the photographers, spends numerous hours aiding the MUSTANG Staff as well as the photographers. Gene Stallings, A1 Harris Tommy Coffee, and Rocky McDowell form an assembly line for enlarging, drying, soaking in chemicals, washing, and redrying pictures Gene Stallings Head Photographer, is responsible for seeing that all pictures are taken and film is processed. John Harloe doesn’t seem to think that JV Football is very exciting. With him are Tom Coffey and Fred Barden. Minor Photography Staff learns the technique of processing film and receives hints on how to take an outstanding picture. By apprenticing the Major Photography Staff during their Junior year they gain needed experience. 188 Winston Edmond and Paula Gallant discuss the excitement and secrecy that accompanies the National Honor Society inductions.

On the bulletin board are some examples of the excellent work that is produced. The Vocational Industrial Clubs of America played a big part at Myers Park this year. Being the first year for such courses as Graphics and Health Occupations, students were given an opportunity to relate with future ca¬ reers. ICT offered students the experi¬ ence of combining classwork with on the job training. Distributive Educa¬ tion acquainted students with the busi¬ ness world. The highlight of the DE Club year was the Annual Bosses Banquet where employers were hon¬ ored by the members of this club. This year the DE Club won first place at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg fair for their booth. While checking over one of his student’s work, Mr. Clark carefully explains the best technique that can be used. Lina Ross receives on the spot training through the new course Health Occupations that is now offered at Myers Park. Here she examines Jayne Massey in the mobile unit that is specially equipped for the course. The officers of the Distributive Education Club are President Boice Triplett, Treasurer Hennie Lem- ckert, and Vice President Greg Johnson. Students in distributive education not only receive training in the classroom but they also have an opportunity to practice what they learn in their after school jobs. DECA provides a social outlet for Distributive Education students and promotes the belief of democratic philosophies of private enterprise and competition. 190 A gripping scene from THE NIGHT IS MY ENEMY, which was presented on the main stage as an arena production. The officers of Limelighters are Treasurer Barbara Bell, Secretary Barry Bell, Vice President Melody Melton, and President Leslie Fox. Limelighters stimulates and strengthens the interest and appreciation of Dramatic Arts. Thespians ' Limelighters Bring Success to Myers Park’s Drama Department The drama department lias put forth an outstanding effort for a successful year. The Drama III class gave selected character sketches from Edgar Lee Mester’s Spoon River Anthology. The Night Is My Enemy by Fred Car¬ michael was produced by the Thes¬ pians as the annual arena play. Drama I and Drama II students participated in the Childrens Little Theater pro¬ duction, The Mystery Rocket. Myers Park won a “distinguished” rating in state and district competition for one-act plays and Lloyd Rose received the Betty Smith Playwright Award for “The Gate”. The Limelighters’ pur¬ pose is to promote interest in the field of dramatics. The National Thespian Society is a select group of promising drama students who have shown abil¬ ity in the drama department. The Thespian officers are Treasurer Johnny Clontz, President Lloyd Rose, Vice President Gerald Col¬ bert The Thespian organization is a dramatics honor society and members are inducted at the end of the year. Johnny Clontz, Treasurer of the Thespians, re¬ ceives help with the application of his make up as he enjoys a snack.

President of the Latin Club Bill Ranson has led his club through a great year. The many projects on the table are just several of the ones used to fill the hall display cases during Latin Week. At the conclusion of Latin Week, the annual banquet is held. This is the summation of a very busy, active week of chariot rides, filling the display cases, and the slave auction. A final tradition is followed and this is the toga c ontest Here Bill Ranson chooses the two winners. 192 Varied Activities Occupy Students in the Spring 193 Interclub Council Carnival Provides Scholarship Funds ' iii’Cf.mif 194 : mam 195 wmm : mmy V. 196 Trackmen Forge Winning Combination 440 Sprint-man George Wilson rounds the first turn. Stuart Allen’s 1968 Track team opened up a season that was not destined to be as superb as preceding years, but produced a season that no one could be ashamed of. Preceding teams had been well balanced in most all events. This year had the finest field of distance runners Myers Park has possessed, but lacked depth in the sprints and field events. The season began with two indoor meets in the Tin Can at Chapel Hill. These were not considered important in themselves but proved valuable as workouts and experience builders. With this start the team began their outdoor meets. The season breezed through with Myers Park soundly trouncing every competitor in regular season meets. Their undefeated season was marred only by losses received during large invitational meets. Allen’s previous teams had practically become just accepted to take the state champ¬ ionship every year. The man at the top is always the one for others to shoot for, bearing a significant dis¬ advantage. Sophomore Pike Jones, Myers Park’s best sprinter, leaves the starting blocks for 10.2 second 100 yard time. Bob Fletcher leaves competitors behind in good Bob Goins, leading opponents, clears hurdle easily, form. 197 Mustangs Victorious in Queen City, Conference, Sectionals 4 Versatile Lanny Davis takes baton from Coleman Smith. The sprints, 100 and 220 yards, were the job of Pike Jones, Bill Bennet, and Marty Anderson. They were fine but could not live up to the past’s Mike Todd and Louis Jewell. The quarter mile was composed of George Wilson and Herb Gale. Wilson did an excel¬ lent job toward the season’s end. Low and high hurdles were dominated by Bob Fletcher, but he had All- American Jeff Howzer’s Adidas to fill. It was an impossible job. Fletcher was backed by Bob Goins, John Davis, Henry Funderburke, and Ralph Clontz. The shorter distances were complete with the 880-yard relay, built with strong sprinters Pike Jones, Bill Bennet, Marty Anderson, and anchored by versatile Senior Lanny Davis. The 880 relay was one of the state’s strongest. The mile relay, with George Wilson, David Todd, Coleman Smith, and Lan¬ ny Davis was exceptional, winning first in the sectionals along with the 880 relay. The mile relay also became State Champ while the 880 relay took second. The two distance runs, the 880 and mile individual, had more depth than any other team in the state. Lanny Davis consistently led the 880, but usually had to strain to keep his spikes out of David McLaughlin, Cornell Pride, and David Todd. Respectively, their best times were 1:57.6, 1:59.5, 2:00.5, and 2:01.6. Gary Allen could always be seen leading the mile with as good as 4:29.8, closely followed by David Todd, Les Brown, Mike Cald¬ well, and Steve Austin. Myers Park distance runners were untouchable.

JP The high jump was led by Henry Funderburke, one of the city’s best, while Terch Whitesides and Bob Annas placed well in dual meets in the pole vault. Bernard Gary was the Mustang’s best in the broad jump, while Howard Segal dominated the discus and shotput. The team was composed of many tremendous athletes too numerous to mention all their personal accomplish¬ ments. These stars joined great effort to take the Queen City Relays for Myers Park’s thirteenth straight time, never having lost. Myers Park took firsts in the 440 yard relay, the shuttle hurdle, and distance medly. This par¬ ticular relay also set a record at the Furman relays, composed of Miler Allen, Pride in the 880, Smith in the 440, and Todd in the three-quarters. The Mustangs went on to dominate the conference and were undisputed in taking the Sectional title. Dis¬ appointment reigned, however, as Myers Park lost the State Champion¬ ship and dropped from the usual first to a fourth in the state. Competition was keen as the first four teams were within seven points of each other. TOP: Myers Park broad jumper balances in the pit.

Baseball Team Records Best Season A strong crew of Varsity Baseballers this year dealt Myers Park its finest record in the game’s history here. The fine season cannot be attributed to any particular individual, as fine team effort and tested coaching ability of Coach Sink spelled the success. Also assisting in the production of the good year was a new assistant coach from Chapel Hill, Coach Gene Link. Strong effort and spirited determination, teamed with excellent coach-team re¬ lationship, proved an unbeatable com¬ bination. Leading his fine team in most games was Dale Sprinkle on the pitching mound. Notorious for his fastball, Sprinkle turned in a remarkable sea¬ son. Backing up Sprinkle was three- sport star Tommy Land, with Chip Holden and Sophomore Brad Biggers, forming one of the strongest pitching crews in the city. Biggers came on especially strong at the season’s end, with two consecutive shut-outs. Sprinkle displayed excellence in bat¬ ting as well as pitching, with consis¬ tent strength at the plate. 200 Garinger player begins slide as Myers Park’s Rob Pierce awaits ball at second and referee watches intently.

Rob Pierce, Ed Moore, and Lynn Wagner were Myers Park’s toughest on the plate, however, each with an average near an excellent 350. Reli¬ ance was placed on these three power¬ houses every game for scoring. The remainder of the team also produced well throughout the season.

The year began miser¬ ably with five out of the six first six games losses. Morale would be expect¬ ed to be non-existent after such a beating. The young Mustangs proved worthy of Myers Park tradition, how¬ ever. Behind the exc ellent coaching of Wayne Ayers, the Ponies rallied and fought back to win eight out of the last nine games. Only determination and guts could have been responsible for this remarkable comeback. Strength on the pitching mound was in the form of Marshall Sloan, whose efforts the team could not have done without. Rick Osborne, dependable on the plate and in fielding, produced well all season. Macky Allen and Bob Wethers also were tough in both these areas. These three boys were recog¬ nized as the better parts of the team machinery, but could not have oper¬ ated without the support of the well- organized remaining six. The come¬ back that resulted from their efforts gave them a tie for second place in the city, rounding out a great season. THE SEA SON M.P.

Golfers Take Second Consecutive Championship Conference Doug London displays his winning form in practice. Coach Jim Hartman’s golfers once again finished a fine year and took the conference championship for the sec¬ ond consecutive year. The top six for this year were Tiger Jordan, Bo Tur¬ ner, Doug London, Lex Alexander, Jack Kirby, and the illustrious Rob Roland. Other strong replacements were Tom Ashcraft, Skipper Duna¬ way, Tom Keller, Randy Keller, Rick Mattox, Dennis Stanley, and Tommy (Mouse) Lineberger. These strong competitors, even with having to prac¬ tice on their own, went on from a conference championship to a coveted first place in the Southwestern 4-A. Individual stars built the scoring nu¬ cleus of the 1968 Golfers. Bo Turner turned in a 77 at the 4-A sectionals for a third individual low and medalist for Myers Park. Tiger Jordan was the most consistent for the season shooting in the low 70 ' s. London steadily progressed through the year, and Lex Alexander, a sophomore, improved fast to surprise everyone and join the top four. Disappointment came as powerful East destroyed the Mustang’s chances of going to State. However, with loss of only Turner, next year’s team should be State Champs. Top four golfers are Lex Alexander, Doug London, Tiger Jordan, and Bo Turner.

All of the top seven singles players were sophomores or juniors, so it is obvious that next year’s team will be a sectional power. The top singles were composed of fine players in Sophomore Frank Leitner, Doug Bethune, Kemp Dunaway, Ken Le Blanc, Stokes Van Pelt, Dick Gaery, and Senior Owen Hoke. Se¬ niors comprised the majority of doub¬ les teams, consisting of Gary Babcock, Robert Fligle, Charles Ervin, Steve Kraft, Glenn Haene, Doug Roberts, Tom Markham, and Hu Odom. The team, coached by Bill Cloaninger, was not publicized greatly but as shown by the scoreboard, their season was a respectable one. Overall the team ac¬ complished a fine 10-3 record. Within the conference the team finished a great 10-2 season, its only loss dealt by powerful East. Senior Steve Kraft plays forward in a doubles match.

There was no such thing as a close match, as the Stangs soundly trounced everyone in the conference except East, who trounced them. There were four complete shut-out games where Myers Park left their opposition scoreless. Independence, Olympic, West Charlotte, and surpris¬ ingly, mighty Garinger were among these victims to an unmerciful Mus¬ tang. Frank Leitner led his young team into the sectionals, finishing second in sing¬ les competition. Doubles match of Van Pelt-Gaery finished second in the sectionals also. Bethune and LeBlanc went to the semifinals in the section¬ als. Myers Park finished this tourna¬ ment with a first place, and qualified six players to the State Tournament. These were Dunaway-LeBlanc and Van Pelt-Gaery in doubles, with Doug Bethune and Leitner in singles to leave Myers Park a fourth in the state and round out the season. Tom Markham played smooth, consistent games in good form as displayed here. 205 Head Football Coach Gus Purcell confers with Quarterback Land during time out.

The former is often more important for good teams. Coaches Purcell, Haircloth discuss football tactics. Mod Coach Campbell gave high school soccer respect. Varsity coach Sink assumes favorite position while watching his team.
