A FRONTIER OF EDUCATION
Block by James Penton, ’33
The graduating classes of Abington High School wish to acknowledge their indebtedness to J. C. IVeirick, principal, "whose fifteen years of untiring service have placed Aldington High School on the frontier of education.
Whence they came from, few ever know, Whether yielded by sky, or by sod. Here for a space—then onward they go And the unbeaten path has been trod.

The Yearbook Staff wishes to thank the Parent-Teacher Association for its consistent support of all
student activities.THE FACULTYBlock by Henry Riebsamen, '33
And so it came to pass
That those seniors who here gave
Their time and whole-hearted support
To the High School
Have passed on,—
To higher institutions of learning Or to the land of live and learn, Having buried here their school spirit, Which, unable to rest in peace,
Will return to haunt them
As on timely visits to the High School,
They recall their happy school flays.

Blue eyes. Brown hair. Medal for four years’ meritorious service on football squad. Assistant swimming manager. Full of fun. Likes auto racing and boxing. Favorite expression: “Boy, that’s a darby.”blue Monday
RING-innnnnnnnnnnnnng, darn that old clock, it would have to wake me up out of a nice sleep. “Oh! Mom, what day is this, Sunday?”
“No, young lady, this is Monday morning and it’s about time you got up for school. Don’t you think so? It's seven o’clock.”
Monday morning and school at that and me with no lessons prepared. And 1 have a history test, at that too. Woe is me. I was just wondering if there is any way of getting out of going to school today. Toothache ! No. That means a trip to the dentist and I’d rather have my history test any day or time than go to the dentist. Now let me see, I mean, think. I don’t know what's wrong with me but shut my mouth wide open if I don't think I'm going backwards. I mean, getting all twisted up. Say maybe I can lie here (this bed sure feels good and warm) until it will he too late to go.
“Young lady, are you ready? It is now 8:30 and the bus is gone, I know your tricks. You think you're going to try another one over on me but I’m wise. Here, take this quarter for carfare and Don’t Forget to Bring Bock the Change. No more of your monkey tricks. I'll see you later about the change I didn't get from my dollar I gave you for church yesterday.”
Oh, gee, I forgot all about it. Heck, here comes a trolley. I wonder if I’ll miss it, oh, I mean, make it. Yes, I did (puff) (puff). Boy that sure was hard going to get it, though.
“Yes, Miss Clark, I’m prepared, (fibber). Are we going to have that test today? No. Gee, that’s great. Well, good-hve, Miss
Clark, see you tomorrow.” Boy, that was a close call. Yes, hut wait’ll I get home.
r'V UMB DORA was a graduate of —' Abington High School.
She always left Study Hall by the wrong entrance and clattered down the hall, high heels tapping a tune. She never locked her locker and she never locked her lips but you can lick the lipstick off. When skirts were long, Dora fell over hers. When hair was hanged, Dora’s front hair tickled her eyelids.
Dora had a boy friend, the Dumb-bell.
The hoy friend thought that Hardy was out-of-date and he didn’t take to Carlyle. He considered Macbeth a poor attempt at a murder mystery. His deepest grievance was that he wasn’t allowed to read newspapers in the library.
The Dumb-bell didn’t study English because he said he meant to spend the rest of his life in New Zealand. He couldn’t learn French because his tongue wouldn't work that way. He couldn’t do his mathematics because he counted on his fingers and he had only ten. His explosion of the day came in chemistry. He couldn't pass P. O. D. because he didn't know anything about baseball and he thought free silver was a handout.
Dora and the Dumb-bell evolved a brilliant plan. Each took the other's examinations. Between them, they secured a synthetic diploma.
It was good everywhere except in Abington High School but why worry about a trifle like that?

“The Sdfekept Memory of a Louely Thing1'
SERVING here! Serving there! Where service is needed, be it in the rest room, in the locker rooms, at the information desk or elsewhere, the Girls’ Hi-Y is on hand. The impressive initiation, the regular social program, the closing picnic are institutions as are the collection of used magazines and Christmas cards for the Kentucky mountaineers and the donations for the welfare.
As officers, one finds: President, Mary Armstrong, Maude Rossiter, Grace Armstrong; vice president, Charlotte Hill, Frances Campbell, Sara McCartney; secretary, Edith Hoffman, Charlotte Hill; treasurer, Sara McCartney, Edith Hoffman.
An equally unselfish service organization is the Boys’ Hi-Y. Carrying in ropes or benches after games, selling milk for relief, cleaning up papers, whenever anything unpleasant is to be done, the boys are right there. Wild debates and wilder discussion are features of the meeting.
Tti the offices have been : President, Ogden Wilbor, William McGee; vice-president, Kenneth Webb, Harold Geyer; secretary, Edward Deming; treasurer, Philip Dagostino ; parliamentarian, Leonard Kelly, William Renner. Charles Drebes; chaplain, Harold Geyer, David Michael, Edwin Parsons.
The Girls’ Hi-Y and the Boys’ Hi-Y are selective, honor groups. Student Council is an elective body, to give representation to the homerooms of the school.
“Democracy cannot be learned where it is not lived.”
In accordance with its motto, the famous statement of the great educator, John Dewey, the Student Council of Abington High School has had to solve as a main problem, the development of proper parliamentary procedure in extra-curricular activities.
To this end, at each meeting of the Student Council, a different member presides. Every time a question of parliamentary law arises, the council consults its parliamentarian, who is sufficiently well informed to advise the group on points of order. Every member eventually becomes a parliamentarian.
For the same reason, a council member acts as parliamentarian at each of the various club meetings, both to decide questions raised to support club officers in achieving the desired result, freedom through order.
The leaders of Student Council are: President, Edward Miller, Ernest Wat-ntough; vice-president, Ernest Watmough, RadclifYe Romeyn; secretary, Mary Armstrong, Betty Bee Irvin; treasurer, Stanley Paist, Dorothy Clark.
Abington’s weekly newspaper, the Abing-Ionian, has been in existence for nine years. The staff believes that in that time the Abingtonian has taken a definite place in school activities. It has so grown in popularity and in number of subscribers and contributors that it represents a fair cross-section of the student life at Abington. In the building up of desirable behaviors, and the strangling of mischievous tendencies, the Abingtonian, has done its share toward the establishment of school morale.
There have been many ups and downs in the strenuous life of the paper, but it has made its appearance on Thursday with regularity that has caused the students to look forward to their weekly Abingtonians. During these years of financial readjustments, when many other school staffs are cutting their publications, the Abingtonian has kept going, full steam ahead. The Abingtonian's allies are its subscribers, its contributors, and its loyal supporters. With their assistance, the paper expects to con-(Please turn to page 57)

THE Mathematics Club. Sounds dry, doesn’t it? But it really isn’t. Enlightening games, practical every day problems and informal arguments, all go to make up the Math Club’s programs. With Mr. Weirick to trisect angles and Mr. Sold, to demonstrate the fundamentals of surveying, this group has a good time. Mathematical personages are: Mr. Albright,
sponsor; Stanley Plewes and Robert Wer-den, president; Abraham Jacobs and Robert Montgomery, vice-president; Sara McCartney and Katherine Weil, secretary-treasurer.
The Latin Club is an important institution in Abington High School. It benefits the school in a great many ways. Club members have sold hot dogs at football games, the entire profit from which goes to the Student Loan Fund.
Through the Latin Club, a member learns more about the subject and more about Latin customs, the little extra touches which improve his Latin. Through the Latin Club, graduates of Abington High School make the grade in college.
From time to time, the Latin Club has outside speakers at its meeting. At that time, the other students of the high school who have no other club are invited to the meeting. In this way. the Latin Club benefits the high school. Indeed, the Latin Club is very necessary to the high school.
Rulers of the Latin tribe, sponsored by Miss Lobach, and Miss Winslow: Consuls— Dorothy Hogg, James Allanson. Second— Marion Rorke, Thomas Foster. Scribe— Betty Snvder. Quaestor—First—Thomas Foster, Second—Richard Koenig.
So attractive are business studies in Abington High School that the Commercial Club must meet in four sections, coming together as a whole only twice a year.
The Mineograph section devotes itself to advanced commercial work. The Typing
division promotes efficient and accurate use of the typewriter. The Travel group sees the world through the glamour of the imagination. The Diction unit shines for better English.
As a whole, the club stages social functions, does a large amount of welfare work, gives prizes for commercial achievements of students and graduates, exemplifies the romance of the business world.
With Mr. Krueger, Mr. Furniss, Miss Weaver, Miss Hepler and Mr. Roberts as sponsors, the club obeys: President, Beulah Garlinger; vice-president. Harry Davison; secretary, Alice Gallegher; treasurer, Harry Glaeser.
With the desire for a better understanding of the German language and people, the second year German students hold their bimonthly meetings to discuss German life in general, special topics about German schools, literature, and the theatre being delivered. During festival seasons, the club holds parties, plays typical German games, and serves German refreshments. At intervals during the year, students make trips to see German Motion Pictures.
Once achievement for 1932-3.3 was an assembly program celebrating the natal day of the great German composer, Richard Wagner.
Members of the German Club take turns in issuing German decrees to their classmates.
To be a member of the Pan-American Club inspires one to search for new and interesting material about our neighboring countries. The term, Pan-American, includes all South, Central, and North American countries.
The local Abington chapter is a part of a nation-wide society with its headquarters in New York City, a society which has made great progress during this, the first year of its existence.

From Precision Ground Tools to The Preserving Industry—this indicates the range of thought of the Vocational Club. A doggie roast at Baederwood, a picnic at Mermaid Lake, an industrial inspection— these are the chief amusements of the boys.
Mr. Wright serves as faculty sponsor. The club’s officers are: Frank Kinsey, president; Tom Sullivan, Frank DeCarlo, vice-president ; Henry Meisel, Stanley Rockett, treasurer; Fred Rockett, secretary; and Lester Sacks, corresponding secretary.
Beautiful senoritas, Spanish gardens and patios, historic buildings, magnificent scenery, Spain in all its grandeur, are brought to the students of the Spanish classes, who form the Spanish Club, every other Thursday in Room 9, under the supervision of Miss Reichard.
This year, the club studied a trip through South America as well.
Each class has a “presidente” who presides over the class and calls on different people to discuss the topics assigned them.
As a closing sentence, what could be more fitting than a proverb in Spanish—El Hombre sin harro peor cs que un muerto.
Volcano explored—Man risks life.
Life, time, nothing matters to a scientist who wishes to advance his profession.
So the young Science Club members learn as they listen to fellow members discuss such interesting topics as the above.
Because of the growing interest in the scientific field the club has again divided its
organization into three sections: Junior Group, Mr. Erb, sponsor; Senior Group, Mr. Burlington, sponsor; Radio Group, Mr. Messinger, sponsor.
Carlos de Murrie, representative of the Radium Chemical Company, Inc., New York, gave the main address of the term, on fluorescence.

The yearly feature of La Rcpublique Francaise is the evening spent in dancing at I.e Cabaret Coq D’Or. Lily-of-the-valley corsages, lucky spot dances, waitresses in French peasant costumes—during the evening one meets these novelties and many ethers.
The dance is onlv one of the delightful achievements of the French Club, which constructs puppets in French costume for a marionette stage and carries out inumer-able other interesting projects.
Officers of the French Club are: prefect Philip Kind, Gilbert MacDougal; viceprefect, Laura Biggard, Robert Warden; secretary, Marion Rorke; treasurer, William Davidson.
“A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” This might weil be the motto of the Art Club, which puts on display in the main corridor each month a quaint portrait, a bit of a sea, a sky, a colorful landscape, a study in flowers, a foliage, the current circulating picture of the month.
The purpose of the Art Club is to encourage the study of different phases of art and art appreciation.

“CThe Music makers and CThe Dreamers of Dreams”
The nineteen-thirtv-three music season has been very successful with the Abington High School Band and Orchestra.. The band made a very creditable showing during the past year. Some of the finer pieces of work accomplished were: Inspirational playing during football season, the concerts during music week, programs given at P. T. A. meetings, the faculty play, the operetta, the various appearances of the jazz orchestra.
Instrumental music is a pleasing feature of Abington High School.
Always ready to participate by singing in assembly programs or at Parent-Teacher Association meetings are the Girls' and the Boys’ Glee Clubs. Their aim is to develop an appreciation of good music, good tone quality, accurate intonation, good posture, and artistic interpretation.
One of the most picturesque and entertaining events of the school year was the operetta, The Bells of Capistrano, directed by Mr. O’Brien, starring all music groups. The spectacular Christmas ensemble is not to be forgotten.
This year, a new musical feature was added to the already numerous projects of the music department, a sacred cantata, The Holy City, which was the outstanding event on the Community Night program.
Fascinating is the name of the youngest child of the music group, the A Cappella Choir, whose members sing without accompaniment. Only those music students are eligible who have passed a somewhat rigid vocal examination. It shares with the glee clubs the musical laurels of the school.
56“Speech Jill Siluer Fine"
DEBATING, in Abington High School, is an intellectual sport. To he in the debating squad is to cross swords with some of the keenest minds in the student body.
The 1933 debaters are working out an idea of the sponsor, the building up of a score-board for judging.
Whether Abington debaters win or lose, every year they do original work in the field of debating.
Like debating, dramatics has crossed the line from extra-curricular to curricular activities. The Dramatic Club has become the Dramatic Activities or Public Speaking group.
Every day, one may find in some corner of the homeroom, classroom, or auditorium one or more gathering of boys and girls learning to portray life and to understand life through the medium of the drama.
Types of ships and flying and phases of aviation as a career have been presented by topics or by open discussion.
The speaker of the year was Mr. Harry Byers, connected with the Naval Aircraft Factory, who explained how to fly and described various kinds of fighting ships.
Highflyers of this group are: President, Robert Loucks. Jack White; vice-president. Robert Loucks. Edgar Mitchell; secretary, Frank Whittock, Harry Dooley; treasurer, Radclifife Romeyn, Norman Tompkins.
Who invented the popular matinee dance ? The Reading Club, of course. Doesn’t it always read the minds of the student body?

Directors of reading are Miss Miller, sponsor; Betty MacLav, Hazel Allen, president ; Emily Wacker, Virginia Wildrick, vice-president; Emily Muller, secretary; and Margaret Anderson, treasurer.

The Junior Fourth Estate, honor publications organization, because it is composed cf an equal number of high-rating. Abing-tonian and Oracle staff members, constitutes the mouthpiece of the school.
Let us observe the working of this machine.

And from this car that really costs you no more you can get the greatest motoring thrill of your life.
We would like to prove to you the real economy of owning one of these cars. And we would like to have you drive one over a road of your own choosing.
