"The outstanding event of the season," she says, "was the visit of the girls from Friends Academy, New York. We all enjoyed them very much, and we were glad to see so many of our own students out to see the game. Our captains did a very nice piece of work with their respective teams, and we have some fine players growing up."

Betsy was chosen as the girl to go by a committee com- posed of student council representatives, members of the affili- ation committee, and several of the faculty. Her fluency in French, her wide interests, and her personality made Betsy the committee's unanimous choice. Behind the scenes of affiliation is a committee of two girls from each class. They meet regularlyto consider fund-raising projects, exchange of correspondence, gifts and students. Through the recent sale of magazines and the forthcoming sale of photographs of all the girls in the school, more than 31,000 is raised. Of this, 3200 will go toward Betsy's travel expenses, and the balance pays the round-trip fare for the girl from Alsace, plus .her incidental expenses here, including side trips to work camps and educational and religious conferences. j ., , TWO NEW CRUTHS. ...V a, o, .. , , Additions to the faculty since September are Mrs. Ruth Field, third grade teacher, and Mrs. Ruth Ammon, secretary. Mrs. Field received her B.S. from Temple, then continued 'her work in education at the University of Pennsylvania and the Vassar summer institute. She taught in the primary grades at Germantown Friends School for seven years. ln Oreland, Mrs. Field keeps house for teen-age son and daughter, Bob and Virginia, and a husband who, as a sales representative of the Dettra Flag Company, Oaks, Pa., with the west coast of the U.S. as his territory, is seldom home. Her spare time, which must be limited, is devoted to read- ing, gardening and the Sunday School of the St. Phillips in the Fields Church of Oreland. Mrs, Ammon studied religious education at the Baptist Institute, Rosemont, was on the staff of the Devereux School for retarded children, Devon, taught English at the Berlin, N. J., Junior High, and moved recently to Willow Grove. With her husband, Raymond, a veteran of the war in Korea, Mrs. Ammon has been gardening and decorating around thleir new home. She sings in the Glenside Methodist Church c oir. THE OLD WRINKLES ARE GONE Have you noticed and admiked -the-face-lifting operation on the former Libby Memorial Library room? New paint and new furniture have joined forces to make a Student Room. The Class of '54, at graduation time last June, presented a green sofa and chair. New stools, a new rug, and the tele- vision set set the stage for comfortable lounging fin oii-class hoursl. Under the supervision of the art department, students are decorating the curtains with block prints depicting the history of A.F.S. The whole redecoration project was managed by a Student Council committee. WOOL FOR WEAVERS For her art classes, Mrs. Grace Duer earnestly pleads for odds and ends of wool which may be used in weaving and 'hooked rug projects.

N, Three Weeks! in' America by Marie-Reine Matt lEditor's Note: Last Spring Claire Nitschelm wrote for us her impressions of Abington Friends School as she completed her exchange year and prepared to return to France. Now "Wren" newly arrived from Selestat, sets down her first im- pressions. Written in French, the following article was trans- lated by Miss Schabackerj When Mr. Bartram asked me for a short report on my experience in the United States, I was very liattered. I wish to tell all who read this article of my great joy and gratitude at having been so kindly greeted by my new family flVIr. and Mrs. John W. and Adele Fitzgeraldj . The two weeks of vacation before the beginning of school allowed me to see some of your country and to know the people a little bit. We spent the first weekend in the mountains where I had the opportunity to meet many people, and I surely have a fine remembrance of them. Several persons who were born in Europe liked to chat with me about their former county and we were able to ex- change memories reciprocally. Since then I have seen that this friendly disposition is general, and I was particularly happy to experience it with my classmates. 1 "Wren" Matt The first day when we met on the hockey field, I could feel this union and team spirit, which makes for the strength and value of the school. Thus I talked with the Sth grade girls just as I did with the Seniors. Each one tried to put me at ease and lim grateful to them for it. The clan spirit which some- times exists between different classes of a school doesn't seem to be known at Abington Friends. The organization of the school was completely new to me, because I didnit know that this team spirit could exist also between members of the faculty and the Student Council. I find, personally, that it is extremely wise to give duties to the students. In this way, they learn to take responsibilities. Another characteristic which I believe is general in the U.S. is that the people are extremely practical and do not like There will naturally be other things to say, but one cannot judge the character and soul of a people in three weeks' time. use . i DF FORMER AFS STUDENTS Trifield: second row: Ched Miller, Barbara Driver, Debbie Joan Diesinger: third row: Mary-Jo McConnell, Mary Light Suzanne Graham, Marian Clement, Mary Whittleseyg fourth Longshore, Linda Frederick, Eloise Wveihenmayer, Peggy Wer- Whittlesey, Babs Allan and Wendy Wyatt.

Huey and Mary Helen Bickley. These two teachers have guided our paths of learning and citizenship during our high school years. It would be difficult for each of us individually to say "thank you" for their genuine interest in each pupil. So as a group our class wishes to salute these two members of our faculty for their unerring patience and the in- centive that they have given us all to- go beyond "just what is necessary." Their qualities of humor, friendliness and helpfulness have made us respect them as teachers and, most important, as friends "Outward Bound" is a symbol of their patience, guidance and faith from which we have all greatly benefited. 1 4 HELEN SCSQTT ' 1 St ICS GRACE TEES Som U Science 1- 55963 H Scwlh I' RQT ggeix Q 1 1 Y RU A'1gIlje3gLD E LIZABETH SMITH l Athletics MARY HELEN ' BICK English LEY gb, ,.2 ,,' f E -A LY Q wwf w w r aw 1.

Want A Ride? 1 1 I1 the Days of Olde The Class of '55 had its beginning as far back as four year old kindergarten, when Adele appeared. It was a time of wild paintings and naps. In five year old kinder- garten, Merle and Phyllis joined Adele for another year of painting, naps and running around the playground. The three girls became very good friends. In first grade, Carol joined the class. Those were the days of co-ed classes, and even at that tender age, Carol attracted the boys. She learned how to handle them besides learning to read and write. In second grade, the boys were gone, but we found it hard to miss them. A new era was beginning. It was the era of "playing horse." This lasted from second grade to about sixth grade. Everyone paired up, and one girl would be the horse, and the other would be the rider. We galloped around for hours every day. Third grade brought Jessica and more happy days doing little besides having fun. Jessie was very studious and learned her lessons well. More horses and a game called "Come" were added to our list of activities. Fourth grade was a very active year. Linda, Mary, Greta and Dee were added to the class. Mary and Dee worked very hard, while Linda and Greta sat on the bench in the hall, giggling. The work was getting harder, and everyone had to buckle down a little more. By the time we reached fifth grade, the Class of '55 was beginning to shape into something. Merle still had everyone out to her house to play horse, but we were be- ginning to feel grown-up. Mild delinquency broke out, but it was soon curbed by means beyond our control. We then settled down until sixth grade. In sixth grade, Jane joined the happy group. She had a real horse instead of an imaginary one, but by now, the horse influence was dying down. Sixth grade will always bring us certain memories. Who will ever forget our embroidery and all the long hours spent on it, or Mrs. Frank reading stories to us? We were really big girls then, because we were at the top of lower school. Seventh grade brought us many innovations, such as being in upper school, changing classes, and having many new drawings. Ann and Joanne joined the group and added their personalities to the class. While Del was running through the woods with Brownie every day, some of us were beginning to get interested in the opposite sex. Most of us, however, were dead set against it. Dancing class was pure torture then, and we were always thinking of new ways to get out of it. Who will ever forget eighth grade!! Some say we were a little wild that year. Mandy joined us and became as wild as the rest of us. Will we ever forget "Hanner and her Pussycat," "Tabercat" or "F.O.B.B."? Dancing classes became less of a torture to most of us, and by the end of the year, we thought we were all grown up. Did we have a surprise! Diane joined our class in ninth grade. Our class was very calm this year, like the calm before the storm. Freshman Day came and went, and with it came an epidemic of mumps. Gver half the class got them. We mostly remember Latin classes with Miss Elmore, and people disappearing from art classes. Tenth grade! The storm was here. What a year! Sandy and Shep appeared on the scene, and joined in the activities. This year was our wildest and worst year. We did the bunny hop in history, had pillow fights, put glue on teacher's chair, and did any number of terrible things. Who will ever forget Ann and Joanne outside the window, or current events classes? That was also the year of "Mademoiselle," the Sopho- more Play, and Linda's election party. Margie, Doris and Joan joined the class for our junior year. We settled down from the year before, because we had so much to do. We got our class rings, took College Boards, got our drivers' licenses, and gave the Junior Prom. We'll never forget driving to the student concerts, or making the daisy chain. Twelfth grade brought us Reine, and we've very glad it did. We had lots to do this year, but we had a lot of fun doing it. It was a year of "lasts": last Halloween Party, Prom, Arbor Day, and last Activities Dinner. Our class has reached the end of high school. We may all remember different things about our high school days, but We'll never forget the fun we've had as a class. if 'P lmszmrs and Pastimes ai As the Class of 1955 takes notice of its final year at Abington Friends, we think back about the many events that have gone into completing our high school days.

Fw S 'Follow the 61611111 Looking through the Irzterplamemary Minutely, I came across an article that caught my attention. It was a review of the recent cinemascope television show, "Follow the Gleam." The article said: "What a crowd was gathered here tonight. 150 million people all over the universe must have viewed this gala affair. Twenty of the Earth's most famous women were gathered on this show. Everything grew quiet, the house lights went out, and the show had begun. The Master of Ceremonies introduced the first person. It was Diane Badik, the famous clothes designer. She told him how she loved combining unusual colors, and that she had started a new trend by combining. orange and purple. 'I'd like you to see my latest creation,' she said, and out came Phyllis Simon, the famous model. She was wearing a new pink and orange Badik original. , "The next person was Doris jean Miller. She had just finished lecturing to the student body at Cornell, and she was on her way back to Princeton as she was the University's first woman head. With her was Greta Gronquist, who had been the secretary of the man who had originated the first space ship to Mars. She said the job had had a lot of bookwork because they had to write to Mars and get permission. "Mary Ickler was next and told us that she ran the world's most famous resort- Buck Hill Falls. She had gone there on her honeymoon and had liked it so well that she worked until she became its manager. "Everyone knew the next three people, as they sprinted onto the stage. The first one was Linda Hano, the Universal tennis star. She told us her plans for the future. She planned to play PSKLEF MNPOT from Jupiter, and then BLK SKT of Pluto for the Interplanetary Cup. With her was Adele Fitzgerald, who told us she was getting ready for the 1976 Olympic Hockey Team. In 1972, she was on the Olympic Basket- ball team, and in 1968 she played on the Olympic tennis team. Joanne McDowell, the last but not least of this athletic trio, is a very famous baseball player. 'I've always liked baseball,' she said, 'but I was very surprised when a team asked me to sign a contract. Right now, I'm pitching for the Phillies, but I hope some day to become the manager-.' "A loud jingling was then heard, like the sound of spurs, as Mandy Funk loped onto the stage. She runs the World's most famous dude ranch, located near Banff, Canada. It was left to her in the will of a very good friend. 'Do you like this career ?' the M.C. asked. 'You bet!' she replied. "The next famous person was Barbara Sheppard. She told us she had the largest gopher farm in the world. She raises all different kinds of gophers: big, small, fat, thin, blue, orange, and green. She seems to be very interested in her work. "Judging from the applause, the next person was very well known. It was Ann Fry, the great actress. She had just finished making a picture called, 'The Ann Fry Story,' and was about to begin its sequel, 'Out of the Frying Pan.' She said she had been interested in acting ever since she was in a school play of 'Pride and Prejudicef "Marie Reine Matt, the next guest, is Earth's Ambassador to Mars. She said that she had been interested in doing diplomatic work for many years, and she hoped some- day to be a member of the United Planets fa branch of the United Nationsj. "At this point in the show, a large explosion occurred. The M.C. told the audience not to panic, that it was only jane Jordan, the 'mad chemist.' A few minutes later, out she came, covered with black, Besides accidentally blowing up three of the World's largest chemistry labs, she has invented a new formula for Ice Cream Sand- wiches. "Next to appear was 'Miss Outer Space' of 1975, Carol Young. She told us how she started out as 'Miss Elkins Park' and had worked up to become 'Miss Wor1d,' 'Miss Universe' and finally 'Miss Outer Space.' "A beautiful soprano voice was heard off-stage, and it was soon discovered that its owner was joan DePaul. She was singing for the Metropolitan Opera Company and had come to appear on this show between acts of 'Carmen.' She said that once she had made the A.F.S. Glee Club, she never had any more trouble. "Jessica Stephan was next to walk onto the stage. Everyone stood up, the band played the National Anthem, and the clapping lasted for fifteen minutes. This was the first woman President of the United States, who had, by issuing 'The Stephan Doctrine,' ended wars forever. "Everyone recognized the next guest as Merle Bennett. She had had a brilliant career as a nurse and is now developing many new medicines and treatments. She told the audience how she gave up the chance to marry because she thought her career was so much more important. "The next person was Sandra Albertson. When asked what she did, she replied, 'I sell "Interplanetary Pink Pills for Pale People," made on Pluto Planet.' She also said she lived on Pluto, but that she did a lot of traveling from one planet to another. "Applause filled the room as the famous author and critic, Barbara Danehower, walked onto the stage. Millions of people have read her world famous book, The Bee. She said that she had just finished another one called, "Around the World in a Sailboat, which she hoped will be as successful as the first one. "The last, but not least, guest was Margie Lang, the renowned editor of the Inter- planetory Minuiely, the most widely read newspaper in the Universe. She has just been chosen 'Editor of the Year,' for her fine work. "The twenty celebrities then came back on the stage for their bows. Everyone agreed that this was the best show ever put on. After twenty curtain calls, the clapping died, and the house lights went on. The show was over."
