"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?

I967 Jeannette Hendricks 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 school. . ,.T....,... .s-.

I9046 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 lengthened. 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. tl Consequently, the first stage of the -Clarissa Ehrman produced a musical assembly program with students at Kenderton School during her week ot work with the National Teachers Corps. Supervisors re- ported her rapport with students was remarkable. 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- nated. ieform of Poverty 99 Bonnie Willig and Louise Shuiz worlied in the pre-kindergarten "Get Sei" pro- gram of the Lehigh Avenue YMCA. They reported that while this program administered by the Philadelphia Board of Education needs improvement. if still has merit for the many children of working mothers who might otherwise be unattended. 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 themselves re-examine students. The speakers enjoyed the chance to their activities from the viewpoints of students. 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 critic of the administrators of the Philadelphia Anti-Poverty Action Committee, Sylvia Meeks, the Urban League 's education director who had 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 more films. 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- ciety. 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 Headmaster Adelbert Mason, 4'The girls from A.F.S., in just ive days, made a wonderful contribution to our program . . . They brought with them in addition to their special profes- sional talents, an enthusiasm and sen- sitivity that was contagious . . . their perceptive questions gave us an op- portunity to clarify and evaluate our goals . . . I hope we will have future opportunities to work with your stu- dents." Another heartening comment came from Ann Richardson, an exchange student from Durban, South Africa, who spent a day observing the pro- ject during its final week. She said: "I have been in several public and private schools at home and in your country, but I have never heard a class discussion that was so free and so exciting. Your students have learned so much . . . all those tech- nical terms! I only wish I could have been a part of it from the begin- ning."

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 were beaming. .ii-.-.i1 , 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. 4 OAK LEAVES June, I967 From the Headmaster . . CLASS OF '63 TODAY CContinued from Page lj 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. Thirteenth Year? 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?

W Qs Wag OUTWARD BOUND 1967 ABINGTON FRIENDS SCHOOL Jenkintown, Pennsylvania Headmaster 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. Dedication 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.

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- ples. 60 ROW ONE Mrs Peters Mary Lotz, treasurerg Marianna Barbara Breinig, Cathy Harbison Jackie Carter Maria Perkins Laura Conkey secretaryg Brenda Watts, chairmang Borden, Becky McCombs, Sandy Haines Barbara Bretl Robin Becker Vicky Vanmver Claire Crossman. ROW TWO: 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. 61 AFFILI TIO 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- tures. 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.

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.

ACO 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 published. Outstanding contributions from Lower School are also printed. 64 w 4 .1 ROW ONE: Susan Elmer, Cindy Schulman, Lucy Prehn, Susan Rashkis, Clarissa Ehrman, Helen Schrack. ROW TWO Kathy Maclnnes, Mrs. Rudd, Rebecca Bass, Janey Meyerding. ABI GTO FRIE D 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. 65 GLEE CLUB 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. ROW ONE A Storb, S. Raab, M. Thomas, A.

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.

ASSEMBLY 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- sions. 68, , wa EEF T IZI ' y .. -P-ici-'?'7:":u - s H if . , k'.. ,IT 1' i - f Clarissa Ehrman, president, Brenda Brooks, secretaryg Conni Anderson, treasurer: Miss Bickley. DRAMATIC CLUB 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. 69 THLETIC ASSOCIATIO 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. The committeels lightbulb sale provides money to purchase new sports equipment, such as jackets and tunics. i ROW ONE: Mrs. Howat, Zapf, vice-president, Louise Evans.

As the teams reached a high level of achievement, their effort has happily been matched by a corresponding improvement in equip- ment. Now those at all levels of competence, from be- ginners to the varsity squad, can work with suitable bows and arrows. The teams display their skills in four or five hard-fought meets with near-by schools each year. ROW ONE: Rebecca Bass, Tia Duer, Jane Meyerding.

As was shown by their hard work, the teams were filled with ambition to improve their skills. Each girl developed, through her practice, a real love for hockey. This year was a rebuilding year and indicates great promise for future seasons. Next year's team had the opportunity of attending a hockey camp in the Po- conos. - 72 J U IOR VARSITY HOCKEY if ROW ONE: Ann Fleming, Sally Skinner, Nan Harbison, Chris Wagner, Anne Posel, Fran Bonsall, Wendy Zurn, Louise Robin Becker, Jane Gottschalg, Sue Frankenfield.

Also figuring in the speed- up were the new plays with which the teams experi- mented in their games.

Twenty-seven girls from seventh through twelfth grades swim twice a week at the Abington Y, learning various strokes, diving, and the methods of team competition. In spite of tiring practices and tense meets, the girls have time to get to know each other better and to develop a closer relationship among the Upper School classes. 76 ROW ONE: Carol Burpee, Vicki LillicraPP, Debbie Parry, Laura Conkey, Sally Skinner.

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. 77 Take me, I'm yours!
