rcJhe (9racle Editor-in-Chief SARAH WOLSTENHOLMETHE j i )ORACLE YEARBOOK Volume 24 Number 2 Gli ra n icies iq3j Abington High School ABINGTON, PENNSYLVANIAHERITAGE No selfish thought was in their minds; They did not strive for individual gains. They deeply thought, and, With an eye that glimpsed the Future, They made decisions. They neglected not the great long stretch Of endless Time and Tomorrows; Nor were they narrow That they should fail to cover and include The problems of another Day. They contemplated and counselled; They weighed their problems carefully; They criticized from every side The right and wrong of their opinions. And then they were agreed— They signed their names— And to their nation gave A priceless heritage— A Constitution. LORRAINE TITLOW. rream In order that we, the class of 1937, may pay homage to that venerable document of American government now in the one hundred fiftieth year of its existence, we have established as the theme of this book of high school chronicles the Constitution of these United States of America, that governmental safeguard which holds so vital and precious a place in the mind and affection of every loyal and upright citizen. It is our desire not to present a biased opinion on the current Constitutional issues but rather to show as clearly as possible that important document's meaning for high school students and its relationship to their progress through the four years of work, sports, and extra-curricular activities at Abington High School.Qjeclb tcaUon Silver anniversary—in leaching history and citizenship, in faithfulness to duty, and in the affections of the boys and girls he has taught. Edwin U. Smiley has completed twenty-five years of service, service given wholeheartedly and unselfishly to Abington High School and to Abington Township. Service—to the boys and girls he teaches. They like his fairness and sense of humor in the classroom and appreciate his help in managing their sports. Service—to the school in which he began teaching history in 1912 and where he is now assistant principal and athletic director. Service—to his community where he participates actively in civic, social, and church affairs—a model citizen. To you, Mr. Smiley, in appreciation of your quarter-century of untiring activity in Abington High School and Abington Township, we, the classes of 1937, dedicate this Yearbook.Superintendent of Schools JOSEPH C. WEIRICK School Board Members WAYNE C. MESCHTER, President ALBERT W. ZACKEY, Vice-president ALFRED H. KLEPFER, Treasurer E. WAYNE JENKINS ALBERT B. SHAFFER ALEXANDER C. WATT HOWARD M. GIVENS LOUIS C. METZ, Secretary, not a member.LPrincipals TTLessage To the Graduates of Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Seven: You have wisely chosen the Constitution of your Country in its Sesqui-Centennial Year as the theme for your year book. All Americans agree that this great document of democracy broughtly kingly rights to every American. More than that— the Constitution gave American citizens a fundamental and lasting foundation. You have chosen Abington High School as your Alma Mater. Abington Township has carefully planned the foundation upon which you may build for a bigger and fuller life. There may have been times when you were not sure it was all worth while. Now you realize that perseverance has its reward. Parson Ebony Snow once said: "Dictionary is de only place where you comes to success befo' you git to work." A by-product of service is happiness, and the foundation of abiding happiness is one's personal life work. My best wishes to the classes of 1937.W. H. Albright Mathematics Helen M.

Wyatt English Gertrude L. Turner English Alice F. Weaver Commercial Spanish, GermanTHE CONSTITUTION-NOW Joseph Hampton Moore, born in Woodbury, New Jersey, March 8, 1864, received his education in the public schools of Camden, New Jersey. For twelve years he worked as reporter and editorial writer for the Philadelphia "Ledger." 1895-1897 marked his rise from Chief Clerk to City Treasurer of Philadelphia. In 1907, he was elected to fill an unexpired term in Congress, where he served fcr fourteen years, gaining fame through his untiring ef- forts for improved inland waterways. When Philadelphia elected him mayor in 1920, he resigned his post in Washington to assume the highest office in his home city, a post which he filled so efficiently for four years that he was re-elected mayor fcr the term beginning 1932. Ursinus College and Hahnemann Medical College both bestowed on him the honorary degree of LL.D., and Italy decorated him with the Chevalier Order of the Crown. ft MONG notable Philadelphians, perhaps J. Hampton Moore, former mayor and member of Congress, is the one best qualified to voice opinions on the subject which is the cause of so much controversy in these present times—namely, the Constitution of the United States. Knowing that in Mr. Moore's fourteen years in Congress he naturally would have come to many definite conclusions concerning this famous document, a committee from the "Yearbook" determined to seek an interview. The request for an appointment, to our great delight, received a prompt and favorable reply. On a Saturday morning we set out—three rather diffident, yet eager, reporters, whose first desire was to reach Mr. Moore's office in the Widener building exactly at the appointed time. When Mr. Moore opened the door, we saw a slightly built, immaculately dressed gentleman, who struck up a sprightly, disarming conversation as he went about tidying the office. Although he is rather short, his un- hesitant motions are always very direct and decisive. His rugged, distinctive face and determined jaw made him a favorite subject of caricaturists during his mayoralty. Hornrimmed glasses and iron gray hair complete the picture of this leading Philadelphia citizen. His very cordiality soon dispersed our shyness, and without further ado the interview commenced. "Mr. Moore," we began, "do you think the study of the Constitution is stressed enough in the public schools of today?" "Not nearly enough," he responded. "It might be well, in view of recent public discussion of the Constitution of the United States, if our high schools would devote more time to the study of the important document. The young people of our country have a great deal at stake in this matter. No country can continue very successfully 'to establish justice, insure domestic tranquillity, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessing of liberty' without a Constitution,or some similar basic form of government. Preceding generations of Americans have found the Constitution of the United States effective, and if the present generation and 'our posterity' wish to uphold the standards set up by our forefathers and adhered to for 150 years, they cannot very well swerve from it." "Then you do believe that our Constitution is an absolute necessity, don't you?" "Oh, yes," he replied quickly. "Without a Constitution or basic laws guaranteeing peace, equality, liberty, and progress, any country is subject to the rule of the strong over the weak, to dictatorship, disorder, and outlawry. Constitutions and basic laws are designed to right wrongs and to hold an even balance between the weak and the strong, the poor and the rich, the fit and the unfit. For want of basic laws or their observance, countries and peoples have fallen into decay." Our next question was one which many have been asking in the last few years: "Do you truly believe that the Constitution has served its purpose well?" A decisive, "Certainly," was our answer. "No one will deny that the United States has grown strong and powerful under our present Constitution. Before it was adopted 150 years ago, our people were divided into colonies, each separate and distinct. Thus separated, they were not sufficiently strong to resist foreign invasion, and were subject to internal dissensions so that, like Spain today, they might have proceeded to internal warfare—with any colonies not involved looking on as silent witnesses. Under the Constitution, the union of all the colonies was formed with definite assurance of peace, equality, and protection for them all." "But," we continued, "some say that the Constitution has already served its purpose, and is now out of date. What do you think of that criticism?" Mr. Moore hesitated only a minute and then said frankly, "The Constitution, helpful as it has been to our own people and admired as it has been by other civilized nations, is not necessarily sacrosanct. It can be amended by the people themselves under terms which it prescribes. Experience has shown that amendments made to the Constitution by the people themselves have in no way diminished the popular respect for the instrument itself. In one instance at least, however, an amendment to the Constitution demanded by a majority of the people was recalled later on by another majority of the people when the amendment was no longer desirable. If, therefore, the Constitution is subject to amendment by a vote of the people, there can be no reasonable objection to the Constitution itself, but if it should develop that any one of the three coordinate branches of government set up by the Constitution—the Legislative, the Administrative, and the Judicial—is to be destroyed without a vote of the people, or by any sort of dictatorship, then not only the Constitution itself but well ordered government is in danger." And, warming to his subject, the mayor concluded decisively, "Unless we have a government free from dictation of any individual or selfish group, we may well prepare for the ultimate overthrow of those standards cf morality, equality, freedom, and justice which have thus far been sustained in the United States." SARAH WOLSTENHOLME, HELEN ROBERTS, JOHN MOORE.THE CONSTITUTION - THEN there goes my hat!" In the grip of a blustering March wind, Helen's ''—' hat skipped blithely up a little alley that turned off from Chestnut Street. Of course, she followed it and stooped to pick it up when it lodged on the steps of a building at the end of the lane. "Girls, I've found it.” Her voice reached us as we stood on Chestnut Street, vainly searching the nearby buildings for Carpenter's Hall. ''Found what?'' "Carpenter's Hall, of course. It's back here off the street." We dashed back the alley to join her, and at last we three stood before the object of our morning trip—the famous home of the Constitution of the United States. (And it had taken a little green hat to lead us to this renowned shrine!) As we crossed the threshold which had known the footsteps of such famous men as George Washington, Patrick Henry, Alexander Hamilton, and lames Madison, the ages seemed to roll back, and there we were in the year 1787. In the spacious white-panelled hall, about forty-five men, dressed in the picturesque garb of the period, sat at tables littered with papers. Although all were weary after four months' labor on this document which was to be the backbone of the great United States, a glimmer of hope burned high, for the work was almost completed. Yes—a happy sigh arose from a group of men concentrated at a central table. The work was done! Quickly the signatures of those present were affixed, and a messenger rushed to tell the people assembled at Independence Hall that at last they were to hear the words for which they had been waiting. Although eager to reach Independence Hall and hear the reading of the Constitution, we could not resist lingering a moment to fix in our memories the scene of its drafting. On one side was the high desk on which the document had been signed. On its top lay the silver quill pen, still wet with ink. The pegged Windsor chairs stood scattered near the desk, left where they had hastily been moved. The dignified grace of colonial architecture gave added beauty to this scene already glorified by its significance.As we stepped again into the street, modern 1937 Philadelphia had disappeared, for a crowd of colonial men and women were hurrying up narrow Chestnut Street. We joined the throng and entered the crowded lower hall, where now rests the famous Liberty Bell. Above us, at the top of the wide flight of stairs stood George Washington as he read to the assembled citizens the completed Constitution. From his lips came these ringing words: We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquillity, provide for the common Defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." A deep silence followed as people from each separate state realized the true value of this manuscript which was to weld them into one complete union. But the great task was only begun. This reading to the people was on September 17, 1787, but it was not until June 21, 1788, that the Constitution became a working unit—when nine of the thirteen colonies ratified it. During this year and a half, the document was presented to the second Continental Congress in New York City and to each of the colonies. When it had been approved finally by Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, and New Hampshire, the original manuscript was returned to Independence Hall, there to be revised, recopied, and signed. All these facts passed through our minds as we stood again in the year 1937 in the east room of Independence Hall. Protected by velvet ropes, in all its dignity and significance, was the scarred yet beautiful table, on which were signed the Declaration of Independence and the final copy of the Constitution. Under this venerable desk lay the threadbare, faded carpet on which each signer trod as he stepped up to affix his signature. How wonderful that we, three school girls, should have the privilege of standing in this room, sacred forever to the memories of that distinguished group who signed the Constitution. Ranged along each wall were the scarred and worn chairs on which these men had sat. Perhaps George Washington himself had filed that scratch with nervous fingers. Had Alexander Hamilton nicked that chair rung with his boot? Filled with reverence for these great men and the result of their labors, the United States of America, we added a fitting climax to our visit by standing quietly in respect before the massed flags of the forty-eight states, surmounted by the national flag of our country. As we opened the great white door, mounted with original forged iron hardware, and made our way into bustling, modern Chestnut Street, the cold blast of wind that swept the street brought a sudden thought to our mind, "The same March wind had blown a little green hat up an alley and taken us back one hundred fifty years." HELEN BIERLIN, HELEN HASSENPLUG, ALICE STOCKER.We, The underlying purpose of all education is to prepare future citizens for their place in the world. Abington High School furthers this purpose by supplying boys and girls not only with training in academic subjects but also with the necessary principles for later social adjustment. These seniors have learned to live and work successfully with other people by their class, extra-curricular, and social activities, and now face the world, trained in citizenship. the Students—CLASS OF JANUARY, 1937 M.

I particularly desire to have this class, which is now leaving this school as alumni, keep in mind and carry out Abington's ideals and standards, whether it be in college, business school, or any other social or community group.

In carrying on the necessary activities of the school year, the boys and girls, in their class meetings, train for citizenship, choosing suitable candidates for class and school offices, conducting proper elections, and voting on current questions of student life. All pupils as members of their class organizations thus gain practical experience in democratic self-government, experience that instills in each one an appreciation of the privileges and powers involved.THE CLASS OF '37 As a yellow flame, leaping straight and tall, You face a stranger world. As a well-trained army, brave and strong, You march with flags unfurled. With the spirit of youth, you are out to win; You know not of loss or defeat. You stand prepared for the buffets and stress Which life shall force you to meet. So stand in truth and the trust of God, Though the clouds may be thick and gray, And the seemingly insurmountable odds Through faith shall pass away. SARAH WOLSTENHOLME.

'Tis with regret that I tonight bade farewell to my beloved companions of ye January class. Dr. Fite did preach an inspiring Farewell Sermon.

Long will I cherish memories of Baccalaureate, but longest will I remember Commencement. Verily 'twas a glorious climax to four all too short years in these protecting walls. I close with regretful farewell to the past but with high anticipations for the future. 46 JANE BUTTERWORTH, HELEN ROBERTS, MARECHAL CLEGG.cTo (Defend the dionor of llTaroon and didinte— Athletic competition bestows a two-fold blessing upon its participants. Not only do the boys and girls representing Abington High School in sports gain physical fitness, but they also receive a more valuable gift, the development of an attitude of good sportsmanship. The whole purpose of athletic competition is defeated unless the athletes learn to obey directions, to forget personal glory in a desire to promote teamwork, and to practice good sportsmanship for the glory of their school. These attitudes developed on the athletic field will later function as desirable qualities of a good citizen.FOOTBALL Letters—Bates. Leidy. Watson. Dorn, Guy. Clayton, Plewes, O’Brien. Cunningham.

FOOTBALL After suffering a relapse, the school's football prestige returned to normal when the 1936 eleven, under Coaches Snodgrass, Erb, and Seltzer, won five games and lost three, capping the season with a brilliant victory over Cheltenham. In the early games, the inexperienced Maroon team failed to click. Bristol was defeated in the opener, 13-7, but Chester and Lower Merion trounced the Ghosts, 14-0 and 33-0. Then the team suddenly came to life and whipped Eddystone, 13-0 and Haverford, 31-0. Norristown topped the Maroons, 19-0, but a huge Radnor team was downed, 15-0. The grand finale of the season saw the hard-driving Ghosts completely outplay the previously undefeated Panthers and walk off with a 13-6 victory. HOCKEY Last fall's hockey season finished with a record of four wins, one tie, and three defeats. Evelyn Anderson's early goal against Doylestown gave the Maroons a surprise victory to start with. The next week, Abington lost a heartbreaker to Jenkintown when the Red and Blue tallied a last-minute marker, but Miss Herzog's eleven came back fighting to defeat Upper Moreland, Springfield, and Olney. In spite of Abington's surprisingly strong opposition, Ambler nosed out the Maroons. This defeat was followed by the only scoreless tie of the season—against the Alumnae. Closing their season at Cheltenham, the girls fought a nerve-wracking struggle but lost by the close score of 2-0. 48SOCCER Letters—Davies and Geissel (Co-Capt.), Allen, Gibbons, Koenig, Kuhn, Paist.

Gantt completed his eleventh year as soccer coach last fall when his team won seven out of ten league games to come closer than ever before to winning the Suburban Championship, ending the season in a three-way tie with Upper Darby and Berwyn. Seven veteran players are left to bring honor to Abington next year, with some very encouraging prospects to fill the vacancies left by graduation. Probably the most interesting game of the season was the home contest with Upper Darby, when, smarting from a defeat during the first half of the season, the fighting Maroons overcame the Upidahs, 2-1. CROSS COUNTRY The cross country team last fall, under the direction of Coach Roland C. Ritchie, ended the 1936 season with a perfect score by defeating its six opponents, Haverford, Olney, Upper Darby, Chester, Ambler, and Lansdale, and placing second in the Suburban Championship meet, held at Cobb's Creek. Although cross country is only two years old at Abington, it is fast becoming an outstanding sport. A meet that drew a large crowd was the triangular contest with Haverford and Ridley Township. Abington proved the strongest by defeating its opponents, 24-60-72. 49GIRLS’ BASKETBALL Letters—B. Whitley (Capt.). G. Stout. M. Genther, B. Ferris. E. Johnson. M. Braccio, E. Gilbert (Mgr.).

GIRLS' BASKETBALL Facing the difficulty of mastering a new technique because of the change to the two-court system, the girls turned in a fairly good record with decisive victories over their keenest rivals, Cheltenham and Springfield. Although mid-year graduation caused the loss of three stellar players, Evelyn Anderson, Helen Hassenplug, and Nelda Sowers, with the able coaching of Miss Gertrude E. Herzog, the reorganized team lost only two games. 42 Upper Merion 13 31 .... .. Norristown 33 30 ...Cheltenham 18 21 ... ..... Jenkintown 39 21 ... Lansdale 45 45 13 33 ... Springfield 26 20 ....

Abington's expert mermaids opened a victorious season by submerging their powerful Main Line foes, Haverford, following this with victories over strong Upper Darby and Norristown teams. With the help of a championship relay team and outstanding stars in all events, the girls easily defeated, by wide margins, all remaining opponents, including their old rival, Cheltenham. This unbroken series of triumphs captured the Suburban swimming crown for the first time in the history of the school. BOYS' SWIMMING After concluding an unsuccessful season of eight dual meets with one win and seven defeats, all by narrow margins, Coach Trainor's natators, managed by Raoul Kister, tied for third place in a field of ten in the Suburban Championship meet. Diver George Stoner, undefeated in two years of league competition, placed second in the state finals, while Captain Stewart Simon placed fifth in the 50-yard freestyle. .- 1GOLF Delia, Coyle, Falbo.

GOLF In spite of having but two lettermen remaining this season, the golf team hopes to measure up to the usual winning standard of previous years. Twenty-two candidates reported for practice, and Coach Brunner has selected a temporary squad, but the question of eligibility may seriously deplete the ranks. Two girls aspired to the team but were not permitted to compete. WRESTLING Very much weakened by the loss of Paul Asure, Kenneth Plewes, and Edward Reim through mid-year graduation, and of Jack Donahue through injuries, the wrestling team came to the end of their season with four wins against three losses. Two outstanding matmen were Anthony Ciliberto, who was high scorer, and Richard Crouthamel, who garnered four victories in as many matches.

Coach Erb is optimistic about the prospects for the nine if the hitters produce as they can and the pitchers come through.

While some have boasted it as the work from Heaven, others have given it a less righteous origin. I have many reasons to believe that it is the work of plain, honest men, and such, I think, it will appear." ROBERT MORRIS TO A FRIEND. "The Constitution is for the living and not for the dead.” THOMAS JEFFERSON. "The American Constitution is, so far as I can see, the most wonderful work ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of man." GLADSTONE. "In questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the claims of the Constitution." THOMAS JEFFERSON. "The people, the highest authority known to our system, from whom all our institutions spring and on whom they depend, formed it" (the Constitution). JAMES MONROE. "The language, 'We the people,' is the institution of one great consolidated national government of the people of all the States, instead of a government by compact with the States for its agents." PATRICK HENRY. "The Constitution was 'extorted from the grinding necessity of a reluctant people.' " JOHN ADAMS. "It (the Constitution) will be a pattern for all future constitutions and the admiration of all future ages." WILLIAM PITT, Prime Minister. "Some men look at constitutions with sanctimonious reverence and deem them, like the ark of the covenant, too sacred to be touched. But I know that laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths disclosed, and manners and opinions change with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also and keep pace with them." THOMAS JEFFERSON.SENIOR SHOTS JUST CAit IV) - "'ARY OOdS LIP WHISKER IS SO CUTE » THE TIMIE MAR' LEAVITT HAP TO OlEV (0 WORTH OF UM I Turkey-da Football Results •Tfa fa erscri..AB1NGT0NS FRIENDS % ’■' t J ’' v» U. »• }- --- » I W. 4Lj ----Cj.
