"Must we always consider education for our children in a curricular
framework?" This question, posed at a recent teachers' conference, evoked a
quick "no" in my mind. Yet, as I thought about it, I wondered just how
much we as a faculty do look beyond the curriculum for significant educational
experiences to offer the students entrusted to us. I also wondered how much
parents would encourage us to break the bonds of our customary "curricular
framework." And what about colleges? Would they look with favor upon
major moves away from the traditional curriculum that has been the mainstay
of the minimum sixteen units required for entrance to college?

To Retire ln August
Jeannette Hendricks has been an
integral part of AFS for more than
twenty years. As the wife of George
S. Hendricks, former teacher of
mathematics, she was hostess for stu-
dent activities both at school and in
her home. The years of her own ser-
vice have included a vast variety of
activities as upper school secretary,
ma ter stencil-maker, hostess, usher,
source of information, general con-
sultant and organizer. In fact, Jean-
nette has always been ready to assist
students, faculty and parents in any
capacity whatsoever, giving her time,
her skills, herself. She has been an
important member of the AFS fam-
ily. We shall always consider her a
part of us and extend now our deep-
est appreciation for her interest, con-
cern and unselfish devotion to the

From the Music Department
Is there anyone in our school com-
munity of parents, alumni and
friends who would and could assem-

harpsichord kit? The Music Depart-
ment would like to purchase a kit
with funds from the Class of 1965

and able craftsman to assemble it.

Noting widespread dissatisfaction among
Latin teachers with both modern and tradi-
tional texts, Mrs. Banning is planning a fresh
approach for eighth grade next year using
selections from the Vulgate "simple but bona
tide Latin from the first day. developing our
own text as we go along". Because the pro-
gram is experimental, she explains, "students'
work will be evaluated regularly and the only
grading will be on a pass-fail basis at the end
of the year".

Abington Friends School's Second Senior Project- 6'The
For the past two years Abington
Friends School has conducted a spe-
cial three Week work-study project
for seniors. Each year the seniors
have found it an exciting departure
from their academic routine. Each
year at least one student has called it
the most important experience of
my school life. " Each year more than
one student has been critical of some
aspects of the project. But none has
suggested that it be abbreviated or
abandoned. Most would like to see it
Last year 's venture centered around
the subject of "The Status of Ameri-
can VVomen." It was a. great success
with students, parents, faculty, and
the public. There was a strong temp-
tation to repeat it this year, but some
teachers pointed out that change is an
essential characteristic of the project
-change in modes of learning and
change in content.
Consequently, the first stage of the

project is an exercise in selection.
The structure and operation of the
program depends on the choice of a
subject that deserves three Weeks of
concentrated attention. This year the
general area of study was agreed upon
at summer meetings of all interested
teachers. The meetings were spaced
to allow time for reading and reiiec-
tiong in future they may include stu-
dents. The teachers who come are
those who are free and who enjoy
reading and discussing subjects out-
side their specialties.
The result of last year's meetings
was a recommendation that the sec-
ond program center around the prob-
lem of poverty. Early in the fall the
seniors elected a committee to work
out details with the faculty. Dr.
Arthur Shostak, professor of sociol-
ogy at the University of Pennsyl-
vania, was engaged a second time to
advise the steering committee. At a
preliminary meeting, he pointed out
that while a. clinical approach CWhat
is poverty? VVhat are the poor liketj
can be engrossing, a more useful sub-
ject would be poverty reform CWhat
can be done? Who should do it?J.
Emphasis On New Solutions
The committee was pleased with Dr.
Shostak's suggestions. Since Phila-
delphia's poverty programs are con-
troversial, and experimental, they af-
ford excellent opportunities for stu-
dents to learn the difficulties and ex-
citement of putting new ideas into
practice. While all students were not
able to work among the poor, many
of those who did experienced the sight
and smell and touch and taste and
sound of poverty in ways that cannot
be approached even in the best films.
These students also learned import-
ant things about themselves during
their work period. Nothing they had
read or heard compared with actual
experience and, as in the first pro-
gram, they called it the highlight of
the project. Many would like 'to see it
extended to two weeks, rather than
one. Some feel students themselves
should find their own assignments
with faculty guidance.
However, the faculty has learned
that Held work alone can sometimes
be trivial, even misleading. Unless
they are fitted into a complete frame-
work, random faets can serve to con-
firm existing prejudice. Most students
understand this and will probably in-
sist that work and study be coordi-

This Year, two days of lectures and
films preceded the field work, with
eight days following it. During the
final week, there was a field trip con-
ducted by the Philadelphia Rede-
velopment Authority and a day of
interviews with important otlicials in
poverty programs. Each team of stu-
dents made oral reports on its Work
and interview assignments in order
to share its findings with the class.
The faculty was surprised and de-
lighted that so many qualified people
were willing to take time out from
important work to come to Jenkin-
town to talk with a class of only' 25
students. The speakers
enjoyed the chance to
their activities from the viewpoints
Dr. Shostak spoke at the iirst and
dual sessions. In addition, students
had the opportunity of hearing Dr.
Julian Griifer, a regional director of
the Oiiice of Economic Opportunity,
the agency which administers all fed-
eral poverty assistanceg the Reverend
Tom Ritter, executive director of the
exciting Opportunities Industraliza-
tion Center, Dr. Donald Cheek, out-
spoken director of the Council for
Research for Better Schools, Nicholas
S-troh, the Evening BulZet'in's bitter

Committee, Sylvia Meeks, the Urban

harsh words for the Philadelphia
school system, the teachers' union,
and the people who Hee to the suburbs
rather than lead the fight to improve
the system. There were a number of
panel discussions with representatives
of VISTA, the domestic peace corps,
the Job Corps, and grass roots coin-
munity action groups.
Both documentary and art films
were used. These included "Raisin in
the Sun," "The Quiet One," "View
from the Center," and 2'The Bicycle
Thief." Students would have liked
Books and articles on poverty are
coming out every day, but Michael
Harrington's The Other America re-
mains, as Dr. Griifer pointed out,
"the Uncle -Tomfs Cabin of the war
on poverty." Other useful books
were Louise Shotwe-l1's The Harvest-
ers, Harry M. Caudill's Night Comes
to the Cimtberlamis, and John Ken-
neth Galbraith 's The Affluent So-
Term papers on some aspect of the
problem were researched and written
before the project began, and stu-
dents were urged to spen-d as many
weekends as possible at work camps
sponsored by the Friends Social
Order Committee. Those students who
regularly participate in Work camps
proved to be much better prepared
for the program. Two of them were
on the team which worked with Na-
tional Teacher Corps trainees in a
slum school. Their supervisor, Pa-
tricia Alpren, wrote in a letter to

Fathers' Social Notes
Although Father 's Day is otticially
slated for mid-June, AFS fathers
celebrated much earlier this year. On
Sat., April 22nd, under the direction
of George Foust of the Fatl1er's
Committee, lower school boys and
girls, 115 strong, joined with S0
fathers to bicycle, play baseball and
volleyball at Alvethorpe Park in
Jenkintown. They then enjoyed a
picnic lunch of hoagies, steak sand-
wiches and hot dogs. As a special
treat, "coke" on tap was provided
and 'prizes awarded. George Britton
lead the group in a "sing-along", ac-
companying them with his guitar.
Although the weather threatened, the
sun came out later to end the day on
a joyous note.
Upper School fathers scheduled an
evening of baseball with their daugh-
ters on May 26th which included
dinner at the Yorktown Inn. A bus
took the party of 69 to the Connie
Mack Stadium where they watched
the Phillies beat the St. Louis Cardi-
nals. Alfred Breinig made all ar-
rangements for the event.
Dutch Fair Brings
Total To 5316.000
Was it the winy weather, the
friendly folk, or the fair and fallow
farm of the Marvin Neelys that drew
900 people to the Dutch Country Fair
on May 13?
Ask any of the 100-odd people who
put in countless hours of preparation
and they will tell you it was all of
that, but much more. And the much
more was the determination and op-
timism of one Nancy Bailey Neely.
She wanted to end the development
campaign with a. bang, not a whim-
per, and she did it.
Nancy, of course, would like all this
space devoted to thanking people-
Meeting people, alumni and alumnae,
school people, parents, students, next-
of-kin, distant relatives and all those
marvelous people who pa.tronized the
fair because they knew a good party
when they saw it.
, Nancy would also want it mention-
ed that Qmiraclej 90 dozen eggs sold
out by three p.m.! The house tour
attracted 227 and Cadded miraclej
264 paid to see the a.rt exhibit. When
the Schutzes counted all the money
there was S3100 in the till. After bills
are paid the tl53l4,000.00 already
pledged to the development campaign
will be topped with a bonus of about
52,250.00 Small Wonder the Messrs.
Ewing, Parry, Mason and Shaifer
, Play Day Joins May Day
There were many innovations at
May Day this year. Heading the list
was the combination of the two picnic
days into one: Blues competed against
Whites Land won again ly on the hoc-
key iield before moving over to the
grove,where Susie Adams was crown-
ed queen and her willing subjects
danced at her feet. Also new for this
year was a perfect spring da.y, with
the dogwoods ringing the hockey field
and grove in full bloom.
Mary P. Harper Parry received a
corsage from her graduating grand-
daughter Debbie Parry While cele-
brating the seventieth anniversary of
her graduation from AFS. We learn-
ed that the Old Pupils gathering, the
forerunner of our May Day, lost its
name because there were those who
didn't care for the confusion with
Old Peoples. Nothing new about that.

Perhaps the most significant edu-
cational venture at Abington Friends
School outside the usual curricular
pattern is the Senior Project, de-
scribed in detail elsewhere in this
issue of Oak Leaves. Although we
might not find unanimous agreement
among students, faculty, parents, and
our visiting speakers or panelists on
the timing and method of the project,
I think there are few who do not see
the values of this departure from the
usual academic curriculum. The pro-
ject seems to promote some import-
ant educational gains: it involves in-
dependent study through reading that
is not narrowly limited or highly
structured Cthis encourages the
strongly motivated and searching
student to pursue her study in
depthlg it requires critical assess-
ment of "experts" who diifer among
themselves and with whom the stu-
dents have had personal contactg and,
perhaps most innovative of all, it
provides the students with direct in-
volvement and experience in the pro-
ject, studied, not merely with a
teacher-directed, textbook - oriented
approach to the topic under study.
The enthusiasm of the students,
the encouragement of a university
professor who participa.ted in the pro-
ject, the favorable evaluation of our
studen-ts' work experience by those
not directly associated with the
school, should give impetus to break
further the confinement of the tradi-
tional curriculum. Should such ex-
periences start earlier - perhaps in
the freshman, sophomore, or junior
years? Would perhaps an extension
and development of the Senior Pro-
ject idea be a valuable and enriching
program for a year between high
school and college? Recently Presi-
dent Kingman Brewster, Jr. of Yale
University promoted the idea. that fl
great many high school graduates
would proit by a year before college
in some activity that "was in sharp
contrast to the pressure for competi-
tive academic achievementf' The de-
lay, he said, "would do wonders for
motivation, for perspective and for
character. ' '

formal education becomes a necessary
part of the fabric of our society, we

U, Hill! W
One of the greatest joys of this, my first, year at A.F.S. has been the warm
reception and appreciation I have received from you, the Senior Class. For this
I shall remain ever grateful.
I send every wish for your success and happiness that I hope will be created
in your lives through the spirit of giving of yourselves to the world, of seeking
the best from those you meet, and of not accepting the ills of society without
diligent efforts to reform them. The comment of William James, "The great use
of life is to spend it for something that will outlast itj' may well provide the
precept that, if followed, will insure the success and happiness I wish for you.
At Abington Friends there is a spirit of friendship and cooperation,
and yet, each student is urged to know herself and explore for herself.
It is Miss Bertha Huey who guides us in this search and who helps
us in planning for the future as well as in coping with the present.
She unifies the spirit of the school by generating spirit in the student
body and within the classes. We Seniors have always been grateful
for Miss Huey's good counsel and firm hand when we have had
a problem, either as a group or as individuals. It is because she has
made some of our most important years a little smoother and a lot
more meaningful that we take pleasure in dedicating Outward Bound
1967 to Miss Bertha M. Huey.

ST DE T CGUNCIL
The purpose of Student Council is to promote school
spirit by encouraging. participation in school projects
and activities. It recognizes the need for high respon-
siblity and democratic leadership in cooperative self-
government working for the students with the faculty
and the headmaster.
Council members have taken responsibility for stu-
dent proctored study halls and recently created a new
Spirit in Action committee designed to impart to the
school a greater understanding of the Council's princi-

RELIGIO S LIFE AND WELFARE
The Religious Life and Welfare Committee guides
many aspects of school life. Its day-to-day duties in-
clude choosing devotional readings for assemblies and
organizing discussion groups.
The keynote of welfare projects this year was the
change from "doing for" to "doing with." Following
this idea were the parties given for children at Friends
Neighborhood Guild and a volunteer program in which
students performed rehabilitation of personal hygiene
with patients at Philadelphia Mental Hospital.
The Affiliation Committee seeks to establish a rela-
tionship between schools, not just between individuals.
With our aliiliated school, Lycee Stendhal in France,
the Committee exchanges letters and pictures of school
life which help the students understand foreign cul-
This committee sponsored two exchange students at
AFS this year: Glenda Femandez from the Institut
Juarez in Mexico and Christiane Secher from the
Lycee Stendhal. Rebecca Van Buren spent her junior
year in France as our ambassador.

Assisting in the daily work of the library is the Li-
brary Committee-:'s original and primary purpose. Com-
mittee members are responsible for charging out books,
keeping circulation records, and receiving fines. Behind-
the-scenes chores, such as keeping shelves in order and
paying library bills, are also done by the library aides.
A more recently assumed role of this Committee is
keeping students abreast of new ideas by stimulating
use of the resources of the library.

The bi-annual student literary publication, Acorns,
recognizes those students who display particular liter-
ary talent. The stall always seeks to stimulate creative
writing and, this year, was especially interested in en-
couraging students to use a variety of literary forms so
that Acorns could reflect the diversity of the student
body. Acorns welcomes art work, giving students inter-
ested in this field a chance to illustrate articles to be

The Abington Friend is published monthly by a stu-
dent editorial staff. This year, for the first time, alter-
nate editions of the newspaper were professionally
printed. Such improvement increases the paper's effec-
tiveness as a means of communication and gives re-
porters a chance to learn journalistic techniques.
The Abington Friend stimulates discussion of school
and community affairs by its editorial stands and by
encouraging students to contribute their opinions
through letters to the editors.
The sixty-nine girls in the Glee Club practise during
the school day twice a week. Girls from seventh
through twelfth grades are welcome to join. Through
singing a variety of music, the girls learn to appreciate
and understand the many forms choral music has as-
sumedithrough the ages.
This year the Glee Club performed in four concerts
with nearby boys' schools. Its greatest effort was di-
rected toward singing Haydn's Creation in the spring.

In recent years the octet has outgrown its name,
including eleven members this year. The members are
chosen by try-outs. They meet several times a week,
learning the techniques of ensemble singing and prepar-
ing selections to perform at Glee Club concerts and
other musical affairs.
Because the octet is composed of girls really inter-
ested in this type of singing, it brings enthusiasm and
ability to every piece of music.

This year the Assembly Committee has tried to ful-
fill its function by presenting programs which are both
entertaining and of significant educational value. Such
programs as the Kennedy Memorial Lecture Series
have combined these aims most effectively. The lec-
turers gave to the students a new awareness of the
humanities and sparked their interest in fields ranging
from poetry to architecture.
Student participation was encouraged throughout the
year in debates, talent assemblies, and group discus-

The Dramatic Club was formed with the belief that a
knowledge of plays and play producing is definitely a
part of cultural education.
Its purpose is to awaken greater interest in the dra-
matic arts and to provide an outlet for such an interest.
Besides aiding students in gaining acting experience, a
play provides an opportunity for students to develop
their talents in some other activities essential to play
production, such as set design, costume, and make-up.
The Athletic Association is probably the most vocal
committee in AFS. Promoting school spirit and keeping
the student body aware of all sports events, the main
concerns of the committee, are accomplished by skits
in assembly, pep rallies, and bulletin board displays.
The A.A. picnic, held early in the fall, gives classes
a chance to meet their new students.

Archery has been growing rapidly in both participa-

high level of achievement, their effort has happily been

ginners to the varsity squad, can work with suitable
bows and arrows. The teams display their skills in four

their hard work, the teams were filled with ambition to

seventh through twelfth grades swim twice a week at the

Since many of our best players had graduated, the
tennis team has had a rebuilding season this year.
However, many of the girls who played varsity and
junior varsity singles and doubles did very well and the
future of upcoming tennis teams looks promising.
With the construction of the new school will come
the addition of new courts and more practice sessions,
so that we can look forward to having tennis play a
bigger role at Abington Friends.

"I didn't exactly like this new glossy surface,
because it made the school look like a museum,
and that's exactly what it was to me, and what I
did not want it to be. In the deep tacit way in
which feeling became stronger than thought, I
had always felt that the Devon School came into
existence the day I entered it, was vibrantly real
while I was a student there, and then blinked out
like a candle the day I left."
