THE ORACLE YEARBOOK Volume 23 Number 2 Chronicle of the Classes o f 1936 Abington High School Abington, PennsylvaniaTHE GATEWAY TO THE FUTURE 13 THE GATEWAY TO HEALTH 45 THE GATEWAY TO EXPERIENCE 57 THE GATEWAY TO LEISURE 63 Entered as second-class matter October 6,1914, at the Post Office at Abington, Pa., under Act of March 3, 1879.ZaCHARV lAYLOR WEIRICK built fine cabinets in the Bald Eagle Valley, Center County, Pennsylvania. His son, Joseph C. Weirick, superintendent of the Abington Township schools, during the thirty-five years of his scholastic career, has been building Christian character, ideals, and leadership from the raw material of human lives. Mr. Weirick brought to Abington High School, in 1918, a wide range of teaching and administrative experience. He found an enrollment of 190. He left an enrollment of 1,060 when, in December, 1934, he succeeded Mr. Ling as superintendent. Mr. Weirick believes in scholarship. He raised the status of Abington High School from that of "just another country school” to that of a leader in academic and activities circles, rated by some of Pennsylvania’s leading colleges as the “best high school in the State.” Mr. Weirick believes in discipline. He lives the statement, “Only the man who can control himself is fit to control others.” Mr. Weirick is dignified. He is exact. He is immaculate. Yet he is human. He enjoys a real joke. He likes boys and girls. He mellows with them. Mr. Weirick sets a high standard. “A good teacher must know his subject. He must develop in his students character and responsibility. He must teach subjects second, boys and girls first.” Because of Mr Weirick’s outstanding record, because of his continuing faith in the younger generation, WE, THE CLASSES Of' 1936. DEDICATE TO HIM THIS YEARBOOK.

B. Gernert Sponsor Gertrude L. Turner Art Adviser Ruth E. Messinger Financial Adviser David E. KruegerA SMALL white column, supporting on its surface a device which records the daily journey of the sun through the heavens, serves to remind the faculty and students of Abington High School of the passing of Samuel S. Utz, teacher social studies and mathematics. Students who attended classes under Mr. Utz or knew him in his capacity of assistant football and baseball coach and sponsor of the Campus Club remember his faithful teaching and his inspiring guidance. The superintendent, the principal, the members of the faculty who came into daily contact with Mr. Utz as an instructor, as the head of the athletic stock-room, and as a friend, will not forget his enthusiastic co-operation and his genial presence. Students have paid Mr. Utz tribute in the beautiful canna bed on the front campus. Administration and faculty have paid tribute in the sun dial. The school pays tribute in memory of one who might well say: “I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course. 1 have kept the faith.” 6 IN MEMORIAMTHE PRINCIPAL HEN EUGENE B. GERNERT succeeded Joseph C. Weirick as principal of Abington High School, in December. 1934. he came not as a stranger but as a friend. Mr. Gernert had headed the mathematics department in Abington from 1920 to 1930, perhaps during the school’s period of greatest advancement. He had watched it develop from a small rural institution of a few hundred pupils to one of the finest high schools in suburban Philadelphia, indeed, in the whole of Pennsylvania. He had sent forth a continuous stream of students who distinguished themselves and Abington both in college and in life. Mr. Gernert had left Abington to become principal of Steelton High School and. later, assistant superintendent of the Steelton public schools. Abington remembered this worthy son and called him back to continue in a higher capacity the work he bad laid aside four years earlier. Mr. Gernert is a man of broad vision. He believes in athletics, clubs, school publications, music, art. He himself was an expert tennis coach and orchestra leader during his teaching years at Abington. He makes it possible for Abington teachers and students to contact national leaders in thought and action. Abington placed confidence in Mr. Gernert. He has not failed in this trust. He is maintaining the Abington ideals of scholarship, discipline, responsibility, character. He is spurring the students to new levels of achievement. He is blazing a trail of courage, ambition, perseverance, and kindness in the hearts of those who have the pleasure of knowing him and working with him. 8 THE ORACLE9 Walter H.

ALBRIGHT feels that education is more than knowing the material found in books. If you are unable to apply this fund of knowledge to meet new situations, if you lack the ability to pass correct judgment on practical problems, if you permit some one else to do your thinking for you. then you are, according to this class adviser, uneducated, although you may possess a dozen diplomas. The world has a right to expect that a young person who has been given the fine tools of life will be an artist and not an artisan in living. It looks to the educated youth to be a refining, uplifting force in the community, an inspiration to those who have not had his priceless chances. Abington has faith in the January class of 1936. ♦ In high school, our class assumed leadership and gave its whole-hearted support to the school. Now that we are graduated, we are entering new fields of endeavor and are receiving opportunities to continue to achieve in our own sphere of activities. With all these new-born interests, we do not wish to forget our Alma Mater. We feel a deep sense of appreciation toward our school for the excellent foundation we have received in preparation for life. ot many schools have so comprehensive and thorough a curriculum, so many varied extra-curricular organizations, nor so well-trained and conscientious a faculty as lias Abington High School. Let us as graduates stay behind our Alma Mater. Let us join the Alumni Association and give it our loyal support in all its activities to aid the school. Robert C.

THE ORACLE25 AbINGTON HIGH SCHOOL has consistently educated the June Class of 1936, as all its other classes, to develop a scientific attitude; that is, to take all facts, judge them impartially, weigh them, and give an unbiased opinion. Abington desires its graduates to become participating members in the community; to take an active interest in all problems of government; above all, to become good citizens. These outcomes are implied in Mr. Messinger’s counsel: “Be good Alumni.” ♦ May 1 stress the values of the traditions Abington has given us? lopping the list of these traditions is the driving desire to carry on—never to quit. In all Abington activities, we have been led to look up—never down. In life, this wdill be a great task. No matter how great the problem, how momentous the decision, we can always find strength, hope, and confidence by looking up. I p! Perhaps past that last cover of leaves, up to those great white fluffy bison charging across that field of blue, up to God. He is there. His hand is forever ready to ease the burdens in our hearts. As the doors of Abington close behind us for the last time, we must always remember to look up. Merl Sciieffey THE CLASS SPONSOR THE CLASS PRESIDENT YEARBOOKTHE CLASS OF JUNE YOLANDA M. AGOVINO Yola.

It can be small or large — it is his soul, A place where he can put earth’s loveliness, Like yellow daisies, in a purple bowL For there’s the loveliness of heaven above With all the stars of night in its embrace, The bittersweetness known when first we love, The afterglow of our remembrances. The notes of birds that soar, like singing arrows, Through wind-torn space, swept clean by April rain. The sweetness spring has brought — will bring again. Why does man fear that misty far-a-way That we call death? ’Tis hut a distant dream That comes to all when life is full and sweet, And lands beyond hold things of more esteem. We know this earth of ours; its moods and ways, The things not understood, like death and birth, Should be a mystery never known — and be — Unfathomed, evermore — to men on earth.

And in the strife we two could see How close together each new rent Cemented stronger than the moon pulled tides. Several hundred miles away My buddy goes a-dynamiting. He sniffs the Hampshire conifer, Sweet perfumed. And standing knee-deep in spring’s flooded waters, Can see slashes of piscatorial color. Another friend there cannot be— Acquaintances, yes, Back-slappers, yes,— N DS Too tight a union to let slip Another spirit within the gates— ’Twould quite impossible be. There is the Gang, the roustabouts With whom, ’though never on the outs, We were never in And yet— We quarreled little, argued less With those we did our day beside. There did escape no solemn vow, No rule for friendship, To fasten down in order of council Whatever values it possessed— No reticences, for All was common property— We three. Edward Morrison, ’36.

HARDWARE s J 424 York Road Jenkintown, Pa. y s GIAMBATTISTA BO DOM Master Typographer Giambattista Bodoni must have been an artist. Not only did he ply his trade as a printer in Parma. Italy, but he made himself acquainted with all the ancient literature of Greece and Rome, so that he might produce a type suitable to their beauty. In 1766 Bodoni was made head of the Duke of Parma’s private press to which he soon brought prominence by the excellence of his work. Bodoni was indefatigable. He labored over intricate type, trying to reproduce for the world many of the ancient oriental alphabets that had fallen into decay and might have passed out of existence but for his efforts. Not only did he specialize in ancient languages, but his scope was so great that it included the Greek. Latin, French, German, and English languages. One of his books alone was printed in 135 different languages. Particularly are his French and Italian classics prized for their typographical elegance. In addition to the typography of his books, Bodoni was accurate and true jn reproducing the literature itself. His “Homer" is a magnificent work. His Greek letters are the most perfect reproductions of Greek manuscripts that have been attempted in modern times. Bodoni himself was a man of small stature, but the clear, level gaze of his eyes and his untiring vitality placed him in command of every situation. He must have been somewhat of a philosopher as well, for the allegorical Greek letters that introduce the paragraphs of his “Homer” show interpretation and understanding of the classic itself. Bodoni died in Padun, Italy, in 1813, celebrated then as now for the beauty of his types and for their practical value. This yearbook is printed in Bodoni Book Type. from the Press of H. G. Roebuck Son BALTIMORE, MD. PLEASE MENTION THE ORACLE
