Robert Scattergood Fox, Historian
this latter class come the mistakes we have made, which I shall pass over because of the lack of time.
We entered Abington, this class of nineteen twenty-one, forty-five strong, from all the schools in the district, and our hue was such that it did not need spectrum analysis to discern us. This hue soon wore off, however, as we became better acquainted with ourselves, the faculty, and our studies, and as the Sophomores became better acquainted with us. Our Freshman year saw the death of hazing, but the Sophomores were determined that it should have a great funeral, and bent their energies, for the first few months, in that direction. There was the old, time-honored initiation of the “paddles,” several fellows were doused in the locker room, and it is a matter of record that one of our worthy members, Kennard Gregory, could not enter school for the afternoon session, one day, because the Sophs had in their possession, K’s number twelves, afterwards discovered in the rain spout.
During this time we found that Abington was a place for work rather than a good time. As a result of this, students began to show themselves. Eleanor Biecker, Walter Sassaman, Francis Tull, Eleanor Conway, and Kennard Gregory, all made enviable records in their Freshman year, and what is more, have held them all the way through.
Perhaps the biggest event of the year was the first class meeting at which we elected officers. It was in this meeting that Bill, or perhaps I should say, ‘Shorty’ Louchheim first shone as a politician with Vic. Scott co-starring as the favorite son.
The meeting took place early in February. When the smoke of battle had cleared away, and reconstruction work had been started, we found that Vic was the chief executive, with Fred Phipps as his assistant, while Martha Stinson had been chosen Secretary, and Oliver Brock, treasurer.
Sports also received their share of attention with Walter Sassaman, Russell Erb, Curtis H. Iloose, and George Noble showing the athletic ability.
With all these things, the first year passed so rapidly that before we realized it, June, and the bane of all students, the finals, had arrived. One was welcomed with open arms, but the other was left behind with a very low mortality, and then—and then we were Sophomores.
The first thing to do, of course, after becoming Sophomores, was to organize. This time Russell Erb was elected president, and Dorothy Douglas, vice president. Erb, however, left Abington in his Sophomore year, so Dorothy was moved up a step to the presidency, and Victor Scott was elected to fill her place.
S HISTORIAN, I shall try, tonight, to take you back into the oblivion of the years, detailing to you events forgotten and unforgotten, and some, perhaps, which certain members of the class wish to be forgotten. In
