K H2 OUTWARD BGUN D 1956 F OREWORD We, the seniors, have chosen mythology to be the theme of our yearbook. We feel that it not only presents a beautiful background for our class record, but also has a certain parallel and mean- ing. The background set by our class memories seems to fall in accord with the antiquity of ancient Greece and Rome and their mythological legend, both having a splendored past, yet a past that will never fade or be forgotten. This yearbook is not only a factual record, but it contains past and present thoughts and personalities of the eighteen girls in our senior class. At this moment the book may not seem so valuable to us, yet we realize that long after our school days we will return many times to the memories inscribed in this book. That is why we have tried to make our yearbook give a well-rounded and diversified pic- ture of school life as we have known it. Each section, every page, has a special meaning for us, each representing an indispensable part of our memory of school life spent at Abington Friends. DEDICATION THE CLASS OF 1956 IS QUITE PROUD TO DEDICATE THIS YEARBOOK TO OUR HEADMASTER, HOWARD WHITE BARTRAM. HIS DEVOTION NOT ONLY TO OUR CLASS BUT ALSO TO THE ENTIRE SCHOOL HAS CONTIN- UALLY MADE US GRATEFUL TO HIM. HE HAS ALWAYS HAD ENOUGH TIME AND PATIENCE TO SHOW A SINCERE INTEREST IN EVERY GIRL. IN OUR CLASSES ON RELIGION, HE KNEW JUST HOW TO PHRASE OUR IDEAS, BRING IN NEW THOUGHTS AS THOUGH WE OURSELVES HAD THOUGHT OF THEM, AND HELP US TO REACH THE CONCLUSIONS FOR WHICH WE WERE SEARCHING. HE HAS TRULY DONE AN OUTSTANDING JOB IN ORGANIZING A GROUP OF YOUNG GIRLS NOT ONLY TO WORK TOGETHER, BUT ALSO TO ACQUIRE THE DESIRE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THEIR SCHOOL AND HER COMMUNITY. THROUGH A COMBINATION OF FIRMNESS AND KINDNESS HE HAS MADE ABINGTON FRIENDS AN ALMA MATER OF WHICH OUR CLASS WILL ALWAYS BE PROUD.

Babs' ability in creative writing has been exemplified in her fine work on Acorn.: and on the literary staff of Outward Bound. She is also a real lover of popular music and can usually be heard humming some tune. Efficiency is the word for this girl. As secretary of the senior class, she has done a competent job as she does in all her undertakings. Babs' sunny disposition keeps her out of arguments, and she has a ready smile for everyone. We have often depended on her to deliver calm and helpful sugges- tions which have always gone far to keep our group on an even and happy keel. 'T -rw gf! 9 W L t M S 1 S-ei, SUSAN BLAIR ALLARD 2760 Huntingdon Pike Huntingdon Valley in 'l E551 13.21 '-iq 7 Sue has a wonderful sense of humor combined with a great amount of sensibility. Her achievements, both academic and extra- curricular, ean be attributed to perseverance and consistency of purpose. She is an excellent listenerg whether it be a funny joke or a serious problem, we are never lacking sympathetic attention from Sue. Her ready laugh and cheerful disposition make her a much sought after companion. Although at times she appears to be innocent, Sue is quite often a part of our class pranks. One of her outstanding qualities is her sincere interest in each individual. Sue is always eager to help anyone in any way she can. She never fails to act with a deep and sensitive consideration of the feelings of others. 'EZ' "Brainy" describes this quiet one to a "T," but a sudden burst of wit or sarcasm is not uncommon to Joan and frequently animates our discussions. She has a real love for learning, and her inquisitive mind and intellectual curiosity have been stimulating to our class. Who of us will ever forget those incessant "why's" that kept us in stitches and Miss Tees in a state? The ability to get a job done well and efficiently is another of Joan's many outstanding traits. As vice-president of the Student Council, she has done a fine job. When we think of Joan, we think of sympathetic under- standing of our problems, her tranquility and her deep and sincere interest in all of her friends.

She seems to be one of the most peaceable persons in our class yet is able to make everyone laugh with her funny remarks. Cathy will be remembered for her scholastic ability and her fine editorship of Acorn: in her junior year. We find a true friend in Cathy, always ready to help whenever needed. She never passes an unkind word. We know instinctively that we can trust her com- pletely, and we like her for her understanding, patience, and sincerity with everyone. We are sure she will have a successful life built upon firm ideals. The little blonde with the sparkling blue eyes and short stature is our Nance. While in class, she has a quiet and mild manner, belied only by the mischievous twinkle in her eyes. Outside class, she is full of fun and always eager to go along with the crowd. Nance has one trait that is seldom found: she is a good listener. She is always willing to be attentive to whatever you have to say. However, it is easy to get her to tell you about her trip out west this past summer. Being around Nance, you are captivated by her infectious laughter and are immediately put at ease by her con- genial manner. We shall most of all recall her agreeable disposition. NANCE LOUISE EMHARDT 215 Rech Avenue Oreland 00 gf . ?t 49 1 Y 3:4 in , 'aw BARBARA ANN FISHER 1301 Huntingdon Road Abington o 9 M fu . E Barbara could almost be called an "efficiency expert." Regard- less of what befuddling task is set before her, she organizes it and always does it beautifully in an amazingly short time. Every- thing about Barbara-the way she dresses, the way she works, her carriage and her manner of talking- is meticulous and neat. Generally she is phlegmatic, but if she differs with an idea or feels she has something to contribute, we have a hard time keeping her quiet. Never once does Barbara abandon her principles, regardless of the consequences. Her unusual ability to handle and control varied types of responsibility has earned her the name, dependable. No wonder she is always busy. Barbara's self-reliance and patience will be valuable keys to a successful future. is 'Qs Betsy's intelligence makes her one of the great assets of our class. But she knows also how to keep her nose out of books at the right time. Everyone remembers her running on the hockey field and getting rosy cheeks from the wind. Because of her ability, independence, and interest in Affiliation, she was chosen to spend a short time in France. Fascinating stories of the wonder- ful experience she had as well as the adept French accent she brought back prove that she took the utmost advantage of her sojourn. Likewise she was able to show to the French people her high-standing American way of life. Her varied duties Betsy always undertakes and performs with a well-rounded knowledge and a sincere interest.

ANN HOLBROOK HURD 625 Highland Avenue Jenkintown 9 O x J A345 Ann has a mind of her own and can be counted on to con- tribute to our discussions. She is a wonderful audience for the class joke tellers, having a keen sense of humor, and she gives us a chuckle when she zips around in her little buggy. Our little one is capable and energetic. She always has her finger in a hundred different pies. Don't let that size fool youg Ann is a conscientious behind-the-scenes worker. She is invariably around to lend a help- ing hand in all our projects. Although she seldom steps into the spotlight, Ann has done more than her share to keep the class running smoothly. Hats off to you, Annieg we need more like you! Mary, though she came only for her senior year at Abington Friends, gives us the impression of having been here all along. With her relation of many tales about Scarsdale, she has brought lots of pep and such a cheerful manner that by seeming always happy, she communicates her joy to each of us. We feel sym- pathetic amusement when she gets into one of her frequent dithers. We like Mary's red hair and attractive features. How can she keep her slim figure with her love for food? She has definitely added a great deal of spirit and friendliness to our class. And that is certainly what' has brought her, with her naturalness and unaffected personality, so many friends. We really wish we had known Mary before.

Her poise and maturity enable her to control different situations with the greatest tact and efficiency. She reaches beyond what is expected of her and is always ready to assume more than her share of responsibility. Along with these qualities, Maija is outgoing and enthusiastic. She gives vitality and vigor to our class. A wide knowledge of world affairs and an intellectual curiosity make Maija a stimulating companion. But no matter what problems con- front her, Maija is always faithful to her ideals. Her deep and sincere concern for people, while present through all her school years, has been exemplified more than ever in her fine job as president of the Student Council. wiki if f QQ! WJ?

Her witty words with sometimes sarcastic comments and dramatic joke-telling keep our class laughing almost continually. Besides the humorous facet of her personality, joan also has a tremendous aptitude for leader- ship. This she proved by being our exceptionally competent class president. Her enthusiastic hockey captainship added a lot to the spirit of the team. Joan's intelligence and scope of knowledge are responsible for making her an interesting conversationalist. Because she has definite opinion about many things, she quite often indulges in spirited arguments. Ioan is frank and honest about everything she does and says, and because of this rare and outstanding quality, she has earned respect as a leader and a friend. The arrival of Daniele is one of the most wonderful things that has ever happened to our class. Our likable "francaise" has made countless friends ever since she stepped over the threshold of Abington Friends. Her perpetual smile and pleasant manner touch the hearts of all who know her. Her eagerness to learn, accom- panied by deep interest in everything and everyone around her, has brought and will continue to bring valuable rewards. Dannie is both an interesting and enjoyable speaker and also an attentive listener. Outstanding is her soft-spoken, yet dynamic manner which, combined with her other qualities, adds to Daniele's charm. Dannie will never be forgotten for her deep sensitivity and love for life as our wonderful, "gentille" French exchange student.

J -I' The word "conscientious" makes us think of Janet. Give her a job to do, and it is done with sincerity and effectiveness. Assisting with the photography for the yearbook, she has shown her accept- ance of responsibility. Then, to add to her picture, Janet is the girl in our class who has never lacked for beaux. This fact can be ascribed to her effervescent personality. janet has a ready smile that can be easily turned into laughter. We have always envied her pretty clothes, especially her sweaters. janet has an undeniable faculty for knowing the right thing to wear at the right time. Neat- ness should probably be her middle name, for she is always im- peccably groomed. She carries herself with poise and grace. PDQ If you ever want a candid and straightforward answer, just ask Sonny. She will not hesitate to reply to your query, often with a witty remark. Sonny is prone to do whatever little favor you ask of her. Out on the hockey field she really excels, for in this phase of school she shows an avid interest. Sonny has a very changeable mind and heart. One week it's this boy, and the next week it's that boy. Yet she never sits home on weekends, and she can always manage to have a good time, no matter what she does. She worries very little and enjoys herself to the fullest. Her matter-of-fact and carefree manner characterizes her whole personality.

That's our Bryant, who is perpetually in a happy daze. One should not be misled though. The lazy drawl is only a good front for the accurate observations and satirical remarks that Bryant is likely to come out with. She has a keen wit and puts it to good use. Bry is an active and skillful participant in various sports. Possessing an abundance of school spirit, she is always ready to support a large share of extracurricular activi- ties. As a social success, Bryant, who was our First social butterily, ranks at the top of the class. The fact that she has her goals clearly in sight and definite methods of attaining them assures Bryant of her success and happiness. Judy is the class glamour girl with her slim figure, sophisti- cated clothes and hairdo. Since she first came to A.F.S., we have had a hard time keeping track of Judy between her whirling social life and frequent movings. With her wonderful sense of humor, Judy makes many of our problems seem much smaller by giving them an amused chuckle. She never gets angry but always keeps the light touch. Judy says she believes in taking things easy and enjoying life, but in reality, she is a hard worker. fThat is, when she is not kept home by the elements.J She's both athletic and artistic besides. We owe to Judy's Congeniality many of the wonder- ful times our class has had together. JUDITH JOYCE UTTAL 231 Meetinghouse Lane Meriou C515 gil S, Q!

It is easy for Lynne to talk to people, and you rarely find her with nothing to say. You can always be sure that if Lynne is around, something unusual is happening, for her zest and ebullience keep things moving at a rapid pace. Automobiles are the main focal point in Lynne's life. just ask her any question about them! A person who can easily make friends is Lynne, and she is known throughout the upper school because of her cheerful, friendly manner. Once you meet Lynne, you can never forget her. OUR ODYSSEY In 1942 the Class of '56 started their journey to becoming Seniors: a long journey, but a happy one, touching many shores. The first port was K-4. Here Maija and Lynne boarded. They tell us of the wonderful fun they had swinging in the playground, creat- ing works of art with water paints, and singing while Mrs. Adams played the piano. They were sorry to depart for K-5, but new experiences were in store. Barbara joined them, and together they learned to make wagons and stools in the workshop. Almost like carpenters! "Sharing-day" was a new experience, an edu- cational one, too. Everyone brought an article to share with everyone else. Dolls, pets, leaves and all sorts of odds and ends were shown. On we went to first grade. We were big girls now, for we were learning to read and print. Our favorite friends were found in the stories we read: Spot, Muff, Jane and Bill. Second grade brought more story-book friends. Here too, we started working on proj- ects such as maps and realistic art work. As we moved on to third grade, we lost the male members of the class. What a lonely third grade we looked forward to! But it was not so bad. We were so busy learning new things that we forgot about our losses. We graduated from printing to writing. Multiplication and division were added to our knowledge of mathematics. Bryant arrived in fourth grade. Miss Ducker added geography to our lessons. Furthermore, we had our first sport tournament: hop-scotch. The surest place to find our class was in the driveway fwith the teacher's chalkj, drawing hop-scotch blocks. In fifth grade janet and Ann got on board. This year we were taught to embroider. What mother will ever forget those beautiful tea- towels! But jumping rope was the activity which took most of our time. Our teacher, Miss Brennan, became engaged, and what a time we had giving her a shower. We felt quite important in sixth grade. After all, we were at the end of our lower school journey. joan B. and Cathy joined us here. The class put on the fabulous production of "Rolito." What a hit! We also published "Little Acorns," which everyone enjoyed writing for and then reading. jacks was the tournament this year. The rest of the school certainly had to be careful in the halls, as we were every- where. Seventh grade and upper school at last. Judy and Joan O. joined us on our nature walks with Miss Tees, looking for birds, trees and wild fiowers. Memories remain of those first class meetings in the upstairs science lab. We gradu- ated from embroidering and proceeded to make skirts in Home Economics. Few of us ever wore them. We arrived in eighth grade and were joined by Babs and Chris. What an eventful year. Some of the concoctions made in cooking class were inedible, especially some fried chicken. In hopes of missing an algebra test, we hid on the cellar steps. We missed the test and also part of the Christmas Party. Reaching our Freshman year was quite an event. Betsy joined and helped prepare for the big day, Freshman Day! Remember the play, the wishes and our big sisters? To enliven Latin classes, Miss Elmore brought her inimi- table humor. One class which was never dull was history, with Mr. Goulding, of course! As Sophomores we again became actresses to present the Sophomore play, "Five for Bad Luck." With the new members Sue and Sonja, we worked to put over a wonderful project of sweat shirts. Nance boarded the boat in our Junior year in time for the anticipated Ring Dinner. For weeks we waved our right hands to show off the rings. We all cooperated on a wonderful prom. What fun we had painting those fish and putting sparkles on them! The night was a beautiful, warm night, just right for dancing and then for swimming. At last we reached our Senior year. Daniele and Mary joined our class as we reached the end of our journey. Our first undertaking was to prepare for the Ring Dinner. Everything would have been fine had the caterer been on time! We will remember our Senior Prom: the "optical illusions," the combo and the parties before and after. Finally we got our Senior Room and the seniors just disappeared from study halls. The debates up there were often stimulating! We seemed to be undecided as to how to disembark, but after many arguments, we decided to do it in caps and gowns. As we conclude, we remember not only the big events which took place during our voyage, but the fun we had as a group, the friends we made and the experiences which we shared. It was certainly a wonderful trip full of memories which we will keep with us always. 'K -if --. J.

The Senior Class THE ORACLE AT DELPHI One day, being very curious, the Goddess of Literature, Mary Helen Bickley, stopped at the Oracle at Delphiw to inquire into the future of a group of promising pupils. "I say," said she to the priestess who was in charge of relaying information to and from the famed seer, "what is in store for these girls in the years to come?" The priestess looked intently into the flames coming forth from the crevice in the earth and put the question to the Oracle. After a few minutes during which the crevice had been smoldering industriously, she heard Apollo's reply and turning to the Goddess, she said: "Babs Allan will become a great literary genius and will win five coveted Pulitzer Prizes. One of them will be for her biography of another of your pupils, Maija jansson. The book, entitled Peace and War, is considered one of the master- pieces of the century, and does justice to its subject. Miss Jansson, the famous ambassador to Lyberia, will do what mankind has been trying to accomplish for years. She will do away with all war weapons by means of passive resistance. A large part of Miss Jansson's success," continued the priestess, "will be attributed to the advice of the psychologist, joan Batt, who will originate a new philosophy in addition to her work as a psychoanalyst. This philosophy, which will be called Battaism, will advocate the supremacy of the human mind. Miss Batt, who will be the youngest person ever to receive a Ph.D., will have some trouble with the renowned debator, joan Oppenheimer. Actually Miss Oppenheimer will not be opposed to the theoryg in fact she will really agree with it, but will argue in order to make other people think. She also believes in making people work for their opinions. "The business success of the times will be the fabulous chain of restaurants, called 'Little Fishersf will be popular all over the world because of their fine food and reasonable prices. Another successful business venture will be the popsicle factories owned by a great humanitarian, Chris Lapp. In the long run Miss Lapp will find that manufacturing popsicles will be cheaper than buying them, as she generally eats two or three at every meal. "On the religious side, Catharine' Brooks will become an internationally re- nowned minister. She will take 'round the world tours in the cause of Christianity among all men. Her interest in this field will come from the close association of a friend who will also be interested in this work, and with whom she will be working in close contact. Also beneficial to humanity will be the home for homeless boys managed by Bryant Taggart. Miss Taggart acquired her experience in handling boys during her high school days when she maintained an "open house" policy at her home. "In the fashion and beauty field, Miss Janet Scott will make the news with her revolutionary new "Lose Weight and Remain Healthy" theory. Since this theory will be the product of many years of trial and error, she feels she must pass the benefit of her experience on to others. The year 1960 will see Miss Nance Emhardt named "Miss Ipana" because of her lovely smile. The award will be only one of many won by Miss Emhardt, who, even in high school, was a popular cutie! An "item" will be the marriage of the glamorous artist and model, Judith Joyce Uttal, to the Sultan of Lululand. This match will cause quite a Hurry of excitement and anticipation among the international set with whom she runs. Many friends of Judith Joyce's think she has been planning it since her high school days. "Another happening that will have the whole world talking will be the sale of the famous S jostrom jewels. Miss Sonja Sjostrom's collection, which was begun in high school, will include some of the most valuable pieces in the world. Rumor will have it that Miss Sjostrom's future husband is insisting that she sell them. "Several of your girls, I am told by the Oracle," said the priestess, "will be awarded plaques for outstanding achievement in their fields. First, Miss Lynne Welfiey will be the first woman to break the speed record at Indianapolis Speedway. Her car will be a 1940 Ford coupe with a 1955 Oldsmobile engine in it. Because of her excellent ability at the wheel she will be able to maintain a speed of 396 M.P.H. during the entire race. The second plaque will be awarded to Miss Sue Allard for her unusual ability as a taxi driver. The award goes to her for two counts. One is her ability to find, without any difficulty, any location in the city. She will attribute this to her marvelous sense of direction which she was known for even in high school. The second reason is her friendliness and affability to all her passengers, a rare quality in taxi drivers of her time. "Miss Ann Hurd will contribute to the field of science by announcing her new formula for killing all harmful bacteria. Unfortunately when the formula will first be tested, it will be found to kill a few helpful bacteria, too, but Miss Hurd will soon correct the error, and woe be to all bad germs! "A new travel editor will be hired by the New York Times Magazine. The editor, Miss Mary Hutchinson, will be taken on because of her interesting series of articles comparing Scarsdale to Meadowbrook. "The names Daniele Peterschmitt and Betsy Helveston will be known through- out Europe as well as America. Miss Peterschmitt will write a book that will list and explain all confusing American slang which she learned during her sojourn in America. This book will become invaluable to visitors to the United States and make clear such expressions as 'Dig you later, alligator,' 'gross' and 'scabby.' Betsy Helveston will become head of the Affiliated Schools Association. Her experiences as exchange student to France will help her to do a good job. Because of her efficiency she will also be asked to head up other important committees, but her school days taught her the penalties of taking many jobs at once." With that the priestess looked up from the flames and concluded by saying: "Apollo says that the gods and good fortune will always be with your girls as they must have been with you, Miss Bickley, during your years as their teacher." h . ff? ...
