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.
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.

"Bonnie Barbara Allan" says the ballad, and so say we about
our budding journalist. 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.

SUSAN BLAIR ALLARD
2760 Huntingdon Pike
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
"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.

Cathy, the youngest of all of us but also the tallest, impresses
us by her quiet manners and her mature way of thinking and act-
ing. 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.

BARBARA ANN FISHER
1301 Huntingdon Road
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.
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 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.

"A true leader" can be used as a pithy description of Maija.
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.

Joan has always been the class jester. 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.

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.
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.

"Sleepy Time Gal." 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.

Lynne's genial personality adds much to the Class of '56,
Wisecracks and ready retorts which are likely to pop up at any
time are standard equipment in her speech. 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.
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
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-
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
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
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.

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
"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
"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
"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."

"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."
The mad scientists
Is it morning or night?

Book Day make-up artis
The dangerous group
"We're forever blowing
Making a little moon-
just off the boat
The tiller of the soil
Oh judee . . .
