It was September, in the vear 1915. that we entered Abing- —----------—5 ton High School as a full- ----------------------------------- fledged Freshman class. In that year we encountered many obstacles, of which the most annoying were our old enemy “studies,” and a new enemy, the upper classmen. From the very first day perplexities continually interrupted each other in trying to rout us, and, had it not been for our own perseverance and the kind help of the faculty, few of us would have survived the hostilities of the period. Although little of importance happened, the difficulty we had in holding our own as students caused us to heave a sigh of relief when we, at last, left for two months of vacation. In the following September we again gathered together for a roll call, where we discovered that many of our friends of the previous year had left us. To fill in these open ranks came “Dot” Langdon and Fred Oliver, whom we soon found to be the “right sort.” At our first class meeting as Sophomores we elected a President. Vice-President. Secretary and Treasurer to lead the “Fighting Nineteenth” “over the top” in our second year. And. indeed, it proved to be a decidedly interesting and prosperous year. No longer did we need to obey commands of “upper classmen” nor did we think of worrying over lessons, for, we bore consciously our wisdom as Sophomores. Needless to say, such a class became one of the strong pillars of “Old Abing-ton.” All went well till the month of May, when many members had the “spring fever” and, to facilitate their convalescence, we decided to give a Spring Dance on the second of June. What a success it proved to be! We all went home after that delightful evening with confidence and strength suf- 10firient to weather the approaching storm of “finals.” The winds blew and the floods came only too quickly. It is true that many were submerged, but a sufficient number survived to enjoy a last good time as “Jolly Sophomores” at a picnic at Neshaminy balls. Some picnic! The main feature of the day was the heroic work of “Bill” Wooley. who thought much money could be secured by jumping into the Neshaminy. Why he thought so is not for me to try to explain; 1 leave that to our wonder detective, “Neverfail" Hale. At last, tired but happy, we parted for another vacation. In the fall of nineteen seventeen the class again joined hands. To our sadly diminished band we welcomed Elsie Mitchell and “Perce” Rieder, who have done their “bit” most gallantly as members of the class of Nineteen Nineteen. In was in this year that we elected as our President. “lien" Smith, who had so quickly grown up in our midst. From short pants to “long jeens” had been accomplished in short order after his arrival as a Freshman at Abington, and he is today the “big” man of the class. Under his leadership the class steadily forged ahead in all activities. In Athletics. s:x men received their “A” for brilliant work in football, tennis and baseball, making a total of seven 1919 men in the Alpha at the end of our third year. In the inter-class debate with the Seniors we were defeated but not discouraged with the prospects of the “Monroe Doctrine and Its Present Value.” In December we gave another class dance, which was pronounced the most delightful one ever given in A. H. S. up to that time. A few months later we entertained the Seniors at an informal reception, the success of which justified our lavish expenditure of time, m ney and labor. By continuing the good work well begun we at last reached our Senior vear. which has pr veil to be the hardest year of all. As a Freshman, I thought of the Senior year as a year of peaceful and carefree life. but. alas, my deluded mind has been rudely shaken and. in these last few days. I have often wondered just how we ever managed to get away with it at all. But such is the power of concentrated effort. We just had to do it—and we did. The first month of our work this year was terribly broken up by the influenza epidemic, so that we did not get settled until nearly November. From •lie very beginning we had trouble, and each succeeding day brought more of it. ()ur sturdy president. Jairus Chase, has often uttered a groan which has been prolonged by the audible agonies of the Class I reasurer and the Oracle Editor. They have all had their troubles, and. had it not been for the energy and teamwork of the “Fighting Nineteenth.” we must long since have perished from the face of the earth. During these strenuous days our hands were upheld by the courage and buoyancy of two new members. Clarence Shelmire and Mary Yerkes. At the trying moment when we most needed good cheer, it came in the form of a reception by the juniors. The memories of this reception will remain with 11s as a souvenir of lasting friendship which was then and there established between the two classes. 11Under the direction of Mrs. Wyatt, the Senior play. “Engaged by Wednesday,” was sufficiently rehearsed, and a marvelously successful first and second night was enjoyed by large audiences on the second and third of May. According to rumors whispered here and there, the very “atmosphere” cf this romantic play has seriously affected two of the players—but enough in that direction. The greatest experience of our lives came to us during this past year when suddenly without warning came the greatest news the world has ever heard. Amidst the ringing of bells and the shrieking of whistles we were informed of the signing of the armistice. The world war was at an end. At last “Peace on earth and good will towards man” was again approaching reality. In the celebration of this glorious event, we. the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen, joined, sparing neither voice nor lungs in our wild ecstacy of feeling as we paraded the streets amidst the happy throngs of rejoicing America. All those critics of our worthy class who have so frequently and so openly referred to our inability and so loudly commiserated our lack of talent must bow their heads in shame this evening before this record of the achievement of the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen. ARNO FARENWALD. 12(Class |Jtirm We’ve spent four years at A. II. S., The time for us to leave is near. And so we’re turning to the stress Of duty, in which let us hear Forevermore the voice of Right, As we have always heard it call. “Let not ideals be lost from sight: O. never, never, let them fall.” Although we hear of many rules Which we should sacredly respect, If we use two of these as tools. And do not harm them by neglect. We can not falter, for this pair Of Truth and Honesty includes Each precept that will stand the wear Of years of test: and ne’er intrudes Upon a rightful enterprise. Let us remember, too. that when They do. we must relinquish then The struggle and the longed-for prize And if we’re really honest, we Must never fad to heed commands Of our own minds, for these must he The guides of all acts of our hands, Though they may contradict all laws Which others hold in reverence. These two can never fail, and hence We must seek them and not applause. For honesty is not complete If we self-truthfulness delete. 1.1If our own minds we must deceive, A tangled skein of falsehoods weave, We cannot hope to keep it from Appearing in our ev’ry deed. And thus, with mind and conscience numb. Comes ruin through fear or sordid greed. Then let us not lose those ideals Which we have ever cherished here. Let none of us through greed or fear, Develop our Achilles’ heels. By which our honesty receive Its mortal wound. Let us not heed The luring voices, never leave These ramparts, which, in time of need. Will keep us safe in each attack; Entrenched behind them, we may see Defeated wrong being driven back. And in surrender bend the knee. HAROLD C. ROBERTS. 14Glla00 f5 mig HiBtm tn th? £ mtg Listen to the Song swelling o’er the earth, As now our voices raise, Dear old Abington to praise.

Our love remains with thee, As we now pass along, with boastful song, Never wrong. For we know with Abington comes ever victory.

PERCIVAL RIEDER. 15a hr (Class |Jrnplfmi An txprrimrnt in Swntifir (Elairmuianrr Because of our interest in the coming science of the clay, which is known by the name of Psycho-Analysis, my friend and 1 have been called upon to demonstrate as far as possible the great advantages derived from such a science. Now, fellow classmates, this little experiment which we are about to perform is neither impossible nor improbable, as I hope you will be readily convinced upon the completion of our task. e are not paid as human advertisements to come before you this evening in order that Doctor h reude. the great nerve specialist, may acquire more patients—not at all. N ou have, tic doubt, heard of this authority whose name I have just mentioned. He had been able, under the inspiration of ancient and modern philosophers to bring to light this new form of mental science, which is being applied in the service of mankind by one of his disciples in New York. The origin of this wonderful philosophical science is clearly brought out in the recently published edition of Monsieur Bergson’s “Creative Involution, which book we have just completed with the keenest enjoyment. In this book, we are told that it is just as easy to read one’s future as it is to recall one’s past, not as the palmist reads it. nor as the fake fortune teller of today: but through a stratagem of philosophical theorems based on the facts that were derived collectively out of the scientific and psychological depths by the combined efforts of this great man. The scientific principles underlying this theory appear before us not as myths nor as misanthropic ideas, but as true facts; and in order to prove these facts, we shall, to the best of our ability through your kind attentive support, try to convince you this evening that such a science is possible. Since this is such a precarious experiment we beg of you to give your undivided attention, as it is necessary for you to answer two questions on these cards which will be handed each individual. These questions are. although slightly personal, very important; and. if not answered by the most concentrated mental effort on your part. I am afraid that our contemplated success will be claimed a complete failure. The two questions which are most significant are. first: “W hat is your supreme wish?” and. second. “What incident would most excite the feeling of explosive hilarity?” And I might add that you will please sign your name in full on the last line designated for that purpose. But. my dear friends, it may be of interest to vou to know that it is posssible by some of the intricate 16processes of mentalism. which Monsieur Bergson has translated for us into an atmosphere of our understanding from some higher source which permitted him to obtain such knowledge as was yet uninterpreted by mankind; to pick out the person who has previously answered the two questions without any signature whatsoever upon the card and without regarding the hand writing. You must remember that I can only do this under one condition, and that is that the person signing my questionnaire use his or her mental power to its most extent, which little task I think will be quite difficult for some of you here tonight to perform. But owing to the limited time in which we have to work, we deem it feasible to eliminate any unnecessary problems regarding the distinguishable personnel, as to the characterizing of unsigned cards, for 1 understand that it is not the main objective in our attempt in this experiment; so let every one take precautions in signing his card, for if we come upon any unsigned cards we shall be forced to pass them by. The cards will now be distributed, and you will be given just forty-five seconds from the time you receive your card to concentrate your thought; this being the minimum length of time permitted in such a test under such conditions as present themselves before us this evening. Name in full—Mr. Harold Roberts. What is your supreme wish—That the school day be lengthened. What incident would most excite your feeling of explosive hilarity?— To see the busses run on time. Harold, your future will be a very interesting one. especially along the line of money. I see you drawing a salary of $45,000 a year with the Delaware, Lackawanna Western Railroad as a superintendent of the road. Finding the thoughts of these four people running along the similar channels it is a matter of little difficulty to bring them in connection. I can see five years from now. in the front of the Rivoli. New York’s most famous photoplay house, flashing at minute intervals upon the vast electric sign the main feature of the evening, the title being “Love’s Fate,” by the great novelist. Martha Mitchener. And 1 can see more vividly than ever flashed before me the name of the starring couple of the cast. Henderson Smith and Elsie Mitchell. I can also see standing behind a ticket chopper, having the foot motion down to perfection, dressed in a purple uniform trimmed with large brass buttons and having the appearance of a lackey, my friend, Mr. Walter Gray. Again I find the thoughts of three of these people running on similar roads, and thus they are easily brought together. I can see. ten years from now as plainly as you have written your wishes upon these cards, the Reverend Percival Reider preaching to his congregation. a sermon drawn from Thoreau’s doctrine of “Explore Thyself.” Looking toward the back of the church in a side pew I can see Jairus Chase restlessly moving about—a conscience-stricken man. He sneaks out the door 17very cautiously while Miss Mary Yerkes quietly plays the old hymn, “Wash Me and I Shall Be Whiter Than Snow.” Name in full—Frank Conway. What is your supreme wish?—“That there were no police in Ahington Township.” What incident would most excite your feeling of explosive hilarity?— “To hear Harold Bayuk translate French.” Since the requirements are satisfactorily fulfilled by the above named person, his future is easily foreseen. Beware, my friend, and steer clear of horse races, roulette wheels, etc., and you shall succeed greatly as Supervisor of the entire Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company. I can plainly see James Brown five years hence walking wearily along the streets of a large city. He stops in the post office to inquire the location of the famous apartment house for which the city is noted. At the bureau of information he meets Arno Farenwald. who directs him to the real estate office of Hallowell Shelmire, to which he goes immediately. Upon entering he sees seated behind a typewriter, quickly tapping the keys, a charming young lady, which is none other than Frances Hamilton. Immediately John Porter approaches him. accompanied by Dorothy Stout, whom he is just about to take out for an inspection tour of the apartment house. He is invited to join them and does so willingly. Upon arriving there, they first walk into the parlor and reading room, where they see the same Walter Scherbaum who went to school with them, earnestly reading books on Thoreau. From here he is taken to see the wonderful community kitchen, the main feature of the place. His first glance, upon entering, is toward a fat, chunky fellow, in a large apron and white cap busily engaged in the intricate task of making flap-jacks in a very large pan which is so large that it keeps him constantly busy, turning and flapping them over. This curious character is none other than Harold Bayuk. Going toward the other end of the kitchen he sees Dorothy Langdon briskly moving back and forth to an immense oven in which she is baking great numbers of large cakes. Farther on he sees Margaret ilson holding a large wooden spoon in her hand and carefully testing and sampling the community pond of bean soup. From here he is taken to the elevator landing. He presses a button for the elevator, but to his great astonishment, instead of the elevator appearing, immediately an orchestra begins to play, and looking around he sees that it has for its director. William Woolley. Finally, however, the elevator appears and he is taken up to the bedrooms, in which there are about twenty beds to a room, and among the twenty beds in one room he sees all dolled up in fine linen Joseph Kidd, the chambermaid. From here he is taken to the top floor and introduced to Louis Mullen, who shows him the latest modern improvements, that is, the shed and landing of the airplanes by which the residents of the apartment house go and come. While he is being shown its merits, a large biplane lands on the platform and 18slowly rolls into the shed. Its pilot is Oscar Hale, who has just returned •'rom Lehigh College, twenty miles away. Fellow classmates, if any of you have been overlooked in our little experiment this evening. I wish to assure you that it was due entirely to your failure to sign properly the cards. Now, friends, I hope this demonstration has conclusively proved to you that it is no longer necessary to look into the future as a vast wilderness of unknown terrors; but that we may at any time see the road ahead by turning oil the spotlight of psychological experiment. JAMES E. BROWN WALTER M. CLULEY(Class Hill We, the members of the Class of 1919 of the Abington High School, County of Montgomery. State of Pennsylvania, conscious of approaching the end of our life in this building, and being in possession of a remarkably sound mind, memory and understanding, with due regard for the rights of the upper classes and the comfort and amusement of the infant Freshmen, wishing to make provision for the disposal of our worldly goods, jokes, idiosyncracies and good wishes, do hereby declare this to he our last will and testament. All former wills are hereby declared void. Said will to be executed when the last member shall have received his diploma. Said items of bequeathem? r shall he hereby read and duly executed. Item I—To the incoming Seniors we willingly, gladly and cheerfully give and bequeath all the privileges and favors which have been bestowed upon us—our good looks; our charming dispositions; and extraordinary good behavior. As an example of the latter we cite our silence in the ranks in the chapel, when the Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen are requested to leave the room for chatting and giggling, and sent to their respective rooms, a calamity that never lowered the dignity of a Senior. Item II—To the Sophomores we bequeath the care of the Freshmen, so that they may teach them how to behave and to realize the responsibility and importance which falls upon their shoulders when they enter into the greatest episode of their dear little lives—that of being a high school student. The Sophomores shall instruct them in the use of the garbage can. and how to patronize the lunch room: and. last but not least, the ice cream counter, so that the school may keep up its reputation of being the most generous customer and consumer of the greatest amount of “eats.” Item III—To Mr. Weirick. our principal, and to the other members of the faculty, who have so kindly and generously helped us through our four years’ struggle for that little piece of paper, so important in our lives, we leave an expression of gratitude and good cheer. Item IV—To the School Board we leave our thanks and gratitude for their courtesies during the past four years. Item V—To the orchestra we leave our thanks for their indispensable services and pass said services along to the incoming Seniors, hoping that they will appreciate our generosity. Item VI—Elsie Mitchell, generously inclined, hereby bequeaths her melodious soprano voice to Beatrice Griffiths and, Mary Yerkes. similarly 20inclined, leaves her rich contralto to Katherine Spayd. both of which we enjoyed in our Friday morning matinees. Item VII—James Brown donates his beautiful green necktie to Roland Spohn, to help him show his colors. Item VIII—Frances Hamilton leaves her special attraction, her ability to hurry, to Elizabeth Williams, so said Elizabeth shall get to her classes in time. Item IX—William Woolley bequeaths his athletic success to Merrill Ambler. Item X—Martha Michener leaves her literary talent to Myrtle Peirson. Item XI—Percy Reider cheerfully donates his winning smile to Henry Pierson in hope that it may help him through the three years to come. Item XII—Margaret Wilson leaves her ability to talk to Alta Street. Item XIII—Clarence Shelmire bequeaths his lavender socks to a deserving Freshman, who shall wear said socks to help him remember he’s no longer a Freshman by the time he receives them. Item XIV—Joseph Kidd thoughtfully left a phonographic record of his charming voice to be put to use if the piano breaks down. Item—Walter Gray donates his sang-froid to a deserving and blushing Freshman who shall need it on the spur of the moment. Item—-Arno Farenwald cheerfully hands his editorial pen to any deserving literary student. Item—Henderson Smith donates his politeness to be distributed share and share alike among the Freshies. Item—Dorothy Stout leaves her curly hair to Florence Krips, that said Florence may appease her partiality for blondes. Item—Louis Mullin leaves his knowledge of farming to deserving new Seniors; may they keep his grave green. Item—-Walter Cluley donates his “Western” knowledge to a Sophomore maid, so she may learn the topography in Room B to help her find her loved one in the movies. Item—Harold Bavuk bequeathes his love of vacations to no one in particular. Item—To the rest of the school all the pleasure, interest, knowledge and satisfaction that can be derived from the addresses of visitors in chapel. Item—Russell Smith donates a jar of brain-storms to the Biology class. Item—A book is bequeathed to the Junior class.

Lastly, we nominate and appoint as executors of this, our last will and testament, Mrs. Peirson and Mr. Ling. 21In witness whereof, we. the class of 1919 of the Abington High School have hereunto set our hands and seal this 1.5th day of June, 1919. Signed, sealed and delivered by the Class of 1919 as their last will and testament in the presence of Miguel Angelico. Seraphic Wavers. Patricia Francesco Bouquet. DOROTHY I.ANGDON. Ulantlp ©ratimt The Class of '19 is met to-night to renew its past history and to prophesy the future. The speakers before me have not told all the truth; the Historian has related to you our history, which I am sure you will agree has shown all our virtues; our Poet has put his thoughts into verse and has shown you our doings as he would like them to have been; our Prophet has foretold the future as he sees it. All of these have told you things which many of you may doubt, but now I am going to tell you the truth. We are willing to admit that we have not been the the great and glorious class that some of our predecessors have boasted they were. All of us are by no means stars in Chemistry or Trig.; nevertheless we have held our own. We have demonstrated that fact by the part we have played in Athletics, social activities and in our literary achievements. Our Class has been small and we have not accomplished some of the things which we had hoped to accomplish. However, we feel that your class. Juniors, ought to do greater things with the aid of our new building and equipment. So with our best wishes for your success. I give you this mantle with the earnest desire that you may uphold the traditions of dear old Abington ; nd gain the goal which your ambition has set. and that, when you in turn give this mantle, you may have done as well as we. the Class of 1919. have done. LOUIS E. MULLIN."iEngagrb bg UrbnrBbajj” “Engaged hy Wednesday,” a farce in three acts, was successfully staged by the Senior Class on the evenings of May 2 and 3. It promised to be the best play ever presented by the students of this school, and the predictions were fully realized. The scenes of the play could have been laid in any of our typical Western college towns in the best time of the year- that of the gay summer. The entire action throughout took place on the lawn between the Persons’ and Watson’s homes. Walter Scherbaum. as “Martin Henry.” played his part quite well, satisfying everyone as being “the laziest man in the county"—except where his chickens were concerned. As Miss Abigail, a woman with ideas. Dorothy Langdon acted the part of a determined and commanding “old maid.” The leading characters in the play were l.ucille Persons and Arthur Watson, cleverly represented by Elsie Mitchell and Henderson Smith. Among the others who took part were Margaret Wilson as Mabel, Marv Yerkes as Marie, and Frances Hamilton as Jane, friends of Lucille, who played very well. The parts of the three friends of Arthur Watson. Dick, Jack and Ted. who developed a startling case of mumps in the second act. were interesting, played by Percival Rieder. Oscar Hale and James Brown. An unusual and very attractive feature of the play was the Indian Dance given by several boys of the class.

H. S. and entered, to be pounded, moulded and shaped into the illustrious results you now see before you. Brave and courageous we fared through thick and thin, until we attained the distinguished name of Juniors. You ask what we have accomplished. The answer is found in students like Margaret Leusch. Edith Wilson, Dorothy Donbavand; in Theresa Young, our fiery orator, and in Madonna, our Geometry expert. Fortunately, the girls also have a representative in this terrifying subject in Florence Reynolds And. ah. how often have we looked for signs of fever when William Hallowel vies with Mr. Mutch in Physics class! But we excel not only on the intellectual side of life but in the athletic as well. We rush to the gym with enthusiasm. There is Mathers, one of the poles of our class, physically if not mentally; and there also, steady and firm, is Hallowed, waiting his chance to shine. And then, if we let our glance drop ever so low. whv. sure enough, there is Ambler, distracting his opponents by slipping between their legs and springing up from unlooked for places. And we must not foreet Yates. Lever and Dabney. Our girls, not to be outdone by the boys, have had a greater representation in basket ball than ever before, with Ella Koons leading them on to victory as the star shooter. It is greatly to be wondered at. if all class dues are not paid—or even overpaid. Our treasurer. Ambler, makes his drives in his own little wav and whips his army into shape with his own little tactics. Alas, we should say the modern methods of warfare are h rrible! But our deepest svmpathv g es out to Penrose, our reliable president. He deserves a medal for the skill with which he repulses the onrushes in our uproarious class meetings. And. of course, any visitor may easily be directed to the Junior class rof'm by a shrill feminine voice, which comes floating down the stairs and creeps into nooks and crannies, knowing no restraint, and wlr-h undeniably belongs to Miss Griffith. And. surely, you know Spohn? 'Nufif said. MYRTLE PFIRSON. 27Looking back over the past year, we find many things of interest to call to the attention of the reader. To begin with, the most important of all was the St. Patrick’s Day dance, which was held in the Gym on March 14. The committee, although the path was rough and rocky, finally succeeded in producing the best attended dance ever held in Abington. Athletics this term have been very interesting. The girls' basket hall team played the Freshmen and Juniors, and defeated the former, hut lost to the latter. The hoys’ team did better; they played the Juniors and Freshmen also, hut won both games. We hope that by next year we will he able to say that we won every game. Class meetings there have been many. When our able president. Russell Erb. left us. we elected in his place Dorothy Douglas, the vice-president. Then we were minus a vice-president, so Victor Scott was chosen to fill this place. You have no doubt seen Sassaman hurrying from room to room the first of each month with a small book and fountain pen in hand. The expression on his face could only be caused by trouble in financial affairs. He is our class treasurer, a fact which saves his reputation. The girls have quite a reputation as gigglers, but we sometimes wonder whether or not Mary and Ted aren't rivals for the presidencey of the Class Gigglers’ Club. Mildred, Peg. Doris and Katie are active members. It may seem that we have forgotten the scholastic end of our work, but it has been well upheld by a majority of our members. To sum it up, we hope that by the time we shall have become Seniors, we shall be all that a model class ought to be. FLORENCE KRTPS. ANNA E.

One in 'st admit that we are a great addition to the school. When w: rea h o ir Senior year, and graduate. Abington High will feel that it has lest a wondei-fully brilliant class. The day of our entrance is a day to be remembered by all. “Jour terrible!” We were utterly bewildered. The halls formed a veritable labyrinth. We were lost, although too proud to admit it. Finally, we found our c'ass-rooms. and in a few days, began our work as poor m'serable “rresh:es." Recently our class had a meeting, and we elected our class officers. Paul Sassaman was elected president and has proven a very "Tool ne. Dorothy Fincke is vice-president: Carl Reichert, secretary; Dorothy Reeves, assistant secretary: and Blair Neely, treasurer. Many of our number have taken an active part in athletics. U'rTh an 1 Anglada on the first team, and Fincke. Peirson. Reeves and Sm’th on the second, represent our class in basket ball. Among the boys we find Mc icker. Roehm. Wilson. Reilly and Myers. In football. Roehm and MeVicker have won their A’s. In baseball. Stinson, Wilson and Myers have shown won ler-ful ability. Among the track men we find Reilly and Sassaman. Sassaman has also won a letter in tennis. In several class games of basket ball our teams were defeated; but our girls succeeded in winning a game from the Junior girls. Five or six times a week we wearily wend our way down the dark hall to Algebra class. Puzzling over formulas, theorems and quadratic equations, we work, as the minutes drag slowly on. Sometimes we shudder to see the big red book in the hand of the teacher, the book that contains the problems for a difficult test. Greater is our fear when we see him with the small black book, the book which contains the marks of the past term. One of the most delightful classes is that of History. Verv often there is a good chance to take a nap; the voice of the teacher serving as a gentle lul- 31labv (Mr. Ziegler ?). 'Hie monotony of tlie subject of Medieval times is often broken by “M’uncle says this.” and “M’uncle says that." or “Down a’ m’uncle’s office.” by one of our dear fellow members. Upon entering Mr. Smiley’s class on that eventful morning when the fifty paragraphs have been covered, we might hear the exclamation. “Don’t frown so much. Dorothy, you’ll spoil your good looks 1” As we come to the end of our dreary day, we leisurely find our way up the stairs to Latin class. By the time we have finished conjugating verbs and declining nouns, we are delighted to hear the bell ring. And guess who is the first to shut his book and run. Ask anyone in the Latin class. Everyone knows. Not long ago our class conducted chapel. We showed the other classes that the Freshies were not quite so stupid as rookies are generally supposed to be. We had a very interesting program, and we hope it was enjoyed by all. Every member of the class will agree that we shall leave our Freshman Class better developed, both mentally and physically (thanks to Mr. Ziegler’s fresh air).

I milri) Abington.............. it (t The football schedule this year was much interfered with by the influenza epidemic; as a result, only three games were played. The first game was with Cheltenham, at Elkins Park. The game had been arranged hurriedly that very morning, and our team went into the game, although it had not practiced for a week. At the end of the game the score was 16-0 in favor of Cheltenham. This was a fair showing, when it is considered that Cheltenham averaged ten pounds heavier to the man. In the Swarthmore game, fumbles bv the home team were plentiful, and the visitors won the game. The last game was played on Thanksgiving morning with Lehigh Freshmen. Our team seemed to hit its stride, and in the first half the visitors did not have a chance. The second half Mattson managed to cross the line for his team, and the game ended in a tie. Erb and Noble played a strong game in the backfield. while Jarrett and Yates greatly added to the stretch of the line.

As a whole, though, the team made a fair showing, considering its weight and the hard schedule. Abington took both games from Haddonfield, one from Lower Merion and one from Bryn Athyn; all the rest of the games were lost. but. to the strongest scholastic teams. Scherbaum played a consistent game all season at forward, while Fincke strengthened the team considerably at guard. 1 7 Abington 44 Results of Schedule 19 H athoro 77 . 25 3 44 . 28 .... 36 4 44 . 26 .... 38 5 44 22 Narberth .... 44 6 44 . 35 .... 53 7 44 . 25 .... 18 8 44 12 Germantown Academy .... .... 44 () 44 . 28 .... 30 10 44 38 Haddonfield .... 32 11 44 34 Narberth .... 46 12 44 43 Bryn Athyn .... 45 -UOSirlii’ Haakrtball The girls’ basketball team this year won half the games on the schedule. Wilson and Koons formed an excellent scoring combination, with Sjostrom and Ulrich doing the work at the guard positions. Anglada. Fincke. Armstrong and Peirson composed the rest of the team, and each did her share in all the games. Captain Margaret Wilson holds the individual scoring honors.

Mathers. Seherbaum. Hermann. Kidd. P. Sassaman. W. Sassaman, Conway. Noble. Porter. Woolley and Hallowell. Of these. Yates. Hale. Gardner and Kidd have been chosen for the Relay Team. In the Penn Relays Abington came in fourth, and at Cheltenham Gardner came in second in the "100" and third in the "220.” These are the only “places” Abington has obtained so far. although it is likely the team will win some events in the Lower Merlon meet. 43arark SrarniSafifbail Baseball has been the most successful sport this year at Abington High School. The team consists mostly of under classmen, with the exception of Captain Scherbaum and Hale, who play second and third base respectively. Ambler. Hallowed and Phipps are new baseball men this year and have been playing a fine brand of ball. Ambler is the only player on the team at the present writing who has had no errors, and as he is one of the leading batters, may well be considered a star. Fincke has proved a formidable pitcher, and there are not many who can hit him when he is at his best. Liebrick has shown up well at the other end of the battery, and in a few years should develop into a fine player.

Out of these a fairly strong team was developed, consisting of Fincke, Woolley, Bayuk, Braun and the Sassaman brothers. Only two matches have been played so far. and both were with Chestnut Hill Academy on the courts of the Germantown Cricket Club. Abington came out victorious in both matches; the first time, 4-1. and the second 3-2. It is not likely that any more matches will be scheduled, due to the fact that nearly all the schools that have tennis teams are in the Interscholastic League. It is to be hoped that at some future date Abington will be in the League, as she has a stronger team now than most of the schools in it. 47Ulhr ODrarlc VOL.
