These achievements are important in America. Because we have confidence in the worth of such ideals and because we believe our school is working toward their attainment, we present in this 1940 Yearbook one small unit of America at Work. Y Y? TO TI-IE WORKERS THE American worker is a diversified person indeed. The farmer of the prairies, an industrialist of the East, a minister, an engineer, a skilled laborer, an aviator, a teacher- each forms a small but es- sential part of a great nation, and yet each one maintains his individuality. All of them willingly work hard and are proud of their labor. We, too, are proud of them, so it is to these-the workers of our land -that We dedicate this Yearbook. 1--, J FCREWCDRD Since it is evident that the future of our America is dependent upon the ambitions and accomplish- ments of its high school students today, the 1940 Yearbook presents a cross-section of an American high school at work.

CHUBB Assistant Editor I PHILOSOPHY OF ABINGTON HIGH SCHOOL To be an expert marksman, one must have a target at which to shoot, to create a better school system, there must be objectives for which to strive. What are these objectives of education? In particular, what are Abington? objectives P The faculty of Abington High has voiced its opinion on questions concerning the philos- ophy of the school on the fundamental con- cepts of education, curriculum, and guidance: and, from the viewpoints put forth, one may ascertain the true aims of our school as an edu- cational institution. A problem that has aroused much debate in recent years is that of the proper age limit for compulsory education. How long should a student be required by law to attend a second- ary school? The Abington stand is that a pupil should be required to attend until he completes a curriculum appropriate to his needs, not neces- sarily until he graduates, or until he is eighteen years of age, or until he secures remunerative employment. Pertinent to the curriculum, Abington believes that the faculty should study each pupil to discover his particular traits and abilities as a basis for his own educational program. The greater the size of the school, however, the harder it will be for individual student contact. Both teacher and pupil are handicapped by large classes, made up of many students of varying abilities and inclinations. Should pupils be free to determine completely their own school activities? Nou is dehntely the answer to that question insofar as Abington High is concerned. The student body should have some part in determining the content and activities of its school experience, but the inexperience and immaturity of adolescents makes them poor judges even in matters of their own needs. However, too much conservation is also against the policy of our school. Students should be allowed to govern themselves and exercise their initiative as far as they prove themselves capable. On this question, Abington agrees with a report gathered from two hundred other secondary schools. Concerning pupil activities, our belief is that the sponsor of a student organization should remain in the background as much as possible, giving advice and opinions only when requested. However, when pupil initiative does not manifest itself, students and sponsor should develop their plans cooperatively. Abington High, through her faculty, has set forth her philosophy of education as it concerns the secondary school, feeling sure that most of the students are in complete accord with her aims. 8 Superintendent of Sffvools IOSEPH C.

Af- Q ' ww VOCA'l'IONAL TRAINING AT ABINGTIQIN With the inauguration of the cooperative vocational courses in 1921 under the guid- ance of William McKay as instructor, the industrial course at Abington had its beginning. VVhen Russell G. Greenly came to Abington in September, I922, he ably continued the work of his predecessor until the course was discontinued. Based on the theory that the boys needed actual experience in shops, the course allowed for the alternation of two weeks of classes and two weeks of industry in the community. Two boys would share the same job, while one worked, the other studied. When the boys were in school, they studied woodwork and drafting, together with vocational English, science, and mathematics related to shop work. However, the scarcity of jobs necessitated the discontinuance of the course as a cooperative program in 1928. From that time until the fall of 1939, the vocational course was among the missing here at Abington. Substituted in its place was the industrial arts course. Classroom sub- iects were not related to the work in the shops, and boys could elect shop periods for minor credits. This year saw the establishment of a real vocational course with the boys working in the newly constructed, modern shop. With adequate equipment in all of the departments, students who do not continue with higher education are learning to fill positions by pre- paring in the automobile, ma:hine, woodwork, electrical, and printing shops. Boys tak- ing the vocational course spend the three morning periods studying practical English, related mathematics, and related science, and the three afternoon periods in the shops. Other non-vocational boys may take shop work as an elective in the morning periods. In charge of the classes in industrial training are: Frank McClean, automobile shop, Ralph Wright, mechanical drawing: E. U. Wortman, printingg Howard Neuber, electrical shopg David Clark, machine shop, and Robert I. Rapp, woodworking. These men, qualified both through technical training and practical experience, have expressed their pleasure and satisfaction over the large number of boys electing the difTerent shop courses. In their pursuit of this course, the boys are preparing for a specific job after high school, Mr. Wright states. While some specialize in one trade, others benefit by the whole general course. A pioneer in modern education, Abington has taken a big step in preparing its youth to meet the present day need for practical vocational training. 52 , w 1 wi . ti...iiiiriiii..iiiiiiiwiiiTT.iiiiiililiiiiiiwiilrliiiiiiil.iiT.itl uiiilillliiiiiiiiwii..i..iiii.iiiiuiiilllllmllWliLililinllilii iiiiii liiiiii.iiii.iiimiiiuiliviiiuiiiiiiiiAiiiTt.i..iiililllliidlllliilililllil THE NEW SHOPS Machines at rest Tomorrovfs Grczlscfmonkcys today Printcr's zliclcs Making the wheels go 'round Engineers' hideout No k'Typc-lice here! 53 QQN.

Under the direction of Carroll O'Brien, the choir sang over station WFIL in a special program and at the Strawhridge and Clothier store. At Christmas time, the group made a most attractive appearance as they carolled through the halls of the high school building, robed in their maroon and white vestments. The procession and carols of the choir always form an impressive feature of the Christmas P. T. A. meeting. ELIZABETIIIAN SINGERS The original Elizabethan Singers assembled about a table and sang 11 cappella. The group at Abington which carries this name is composed of those students who have been chosen as the best singers in all the music classes. Contrary to the old custom, Abington's Elizabethan Singers group themselves about 11 piano, instead of a table, presenting a rather informal gathering intended to promote a friendly spirit. During the Christmas season, this group of eighteen singers presented a program of carols at Strawbridge and Clothier's Ienkintown store. 61 litlitorial aml lfcatttrc Httsittcss aml Circttlatiott Xcws aml Sports Pttlwlisltctl tltrcc tttttcs tttotttltly lty a sttttlcttt stall, tltc .lfillllglflllltlll pruscttts a pans t tttta ol' scltool lilt- aml ttrtivitics Iltrottglt ttcws, sports, ctlttorials, itttcrvicws, cartoons, 'cial uolttlttlts, aml cxcltattgcs.

Aided by the English and Art departments, whose classes prepare the material, the editorial board selects and organizes the most appropriate contributions for each isue. This year the staff chose The American Way as the theme for the December issue and Romance Travel, and Adventure for the spring issue. These two numvbers revealed the literary and artistic abilities of the students in the form of essays, short-stories, editorials, features. poetry, cartoons, and illustrations. This year Abington can be truly proud of its literary magazine, which won First place in both the P. S. P. A. and C. S. P. A. contests and also was awarded All-Columbian honors for its editorials. Ieanne Cassady was editor-in-chief.. The stall was guided by Miss Dorothy Cathell, sponsor, Miss Helen M. Clark, assistant, Mrs. Kathryn P. Walker. art: Miss Edith M. Milne, who substituted for Mrs. VValker during the second semester: and I. S. Furniss, subscriptions and circulation. 63 IUNIOR FOURTH ESTATE Managing Editors Ray Anderson Marianna Kitfe Gloria Wall Marjorie Postle UN l0Il F0 BTH ESTATE For eleven years, the Iunior Fourth lfstate has been the publi- cations honor society at Abington: for seven, the oflicial publicity group.

XIILNE I 65 Club Program As a means of insuring the participation of every student in some Field of benehcial extra-curricular activity, the present club system of bi-monthly meetings was directed at Abington this year under the faculty chairmanship of I. Shaylor Woodruff and his assistant, Miss Lilian I. Reichard. The 43 clubs now functioning may be separated into three distinct divi- sions. First come the clubs closely allied with subjects, such as French, Latin, mathematics, and German clubs. Since hobbies play an important role in most students' lives, each year naturally develops the need of more hobby clubs so that these are more numerous than any other type. This group in- cludes the Camera, Caravan, Theatre, Radio, and Modern Dance clubs. The third group of clubs provides recreation along with beneficial know- ledge. These very popular clubs include the Chess, Reading, Writers, and Nature clubs together with such sports groups as the Football and Golf clubs. A progressive plan has been devised whereby the clubs meet alternately twice a month. While underclassmen are enjoying their assembly period, the upperclassmen have club period and -vice versa. This plan allows all clubs to have their meetings during the same week, besides utilizing the free assembly time to a decided advantage. Through their participation in clubs, pupils have the opportunity to ex- change ideas with others interested in the same fields and to arouse otherwise dormant interests. Through correspondence, students gain a broader know- ledge of foreign customs and schools. Outside speakers lend variety to the meetings and at the same time encourage students to take an active part in informal discussions. A club period is an hour Well spent! 66 ill .ul y My l1i11,i3ii1iiiill11i11N1,iiiilliiiiilllllllflll llllllllll CLUBS AT WORK Malin: Auto xIL'L'l1Lll1i I4I'llX'L'l XJILITL' Xylxflllilllllll Hath 67 CLUBS AT WCDRK I 1ln'.1rx SI amp I nmlm fflll xlurx L mum I Illll L l11 tlw groove l'm1s111' at thc Prom .XILI111111 Sllppilfl llclping 51111111 Claus Scniur Slylu Slum' fu 5. ll. .X.

N. Hunsberger, Ir., presi- dent, Shelden W. Hughes, vice-president, Elmer A. Lissfelt, recording secre- tary, Edward G. Zepp, treasurer, Mrs. Grant Swartley, corresponding secre- tary, and Miss Gertrude L. Turner, historian. As guest speakers at the monthly meetings, members heard Superintend- ent Ioseph C. Weirick, Rusty Callow, the Penn crew coach, Professor Arthur Cleveland of Temple University, Reverend lack Hart, Dr. Samuel Grafflin, and Ioseph C. Green of the Pennsylvania Department of State. Highlights of the year's program were the Christmas play given by the music classes in December, a spelling bee and 'klnformation Please quiz between the ladies and the gentlemen of the Association in Ianuary, the student forum discussion on What the High School Student Expects from His High School Training in March, and the Community Night program in May. Again the P. T. A. scrapbook, edited by Miss Gertrude L. Turner, won a first prize in the county contest. As usual, in order to raise funds for the P. T. A. scholarship, the organization gave a sauer kraut supper in November and a card party in March. Funds raised at these two affairs helped defray the expenses of the annual Athletic Banquet, staged this year at Casa Conti, for all the school athletes, and provide a S200 scholarship. With a P. T. A. membership of five hundred eighty-nine, Abington High School can be truly proud of this helpful group and very grateful for the P. T. A.'s interest and assistance in school activities. 70 H lil W IINX lg wx X B-4 7:00 7:02 8:10 8:30 8:31 8:31 First TIIBGUGH 'nm mwfs Womi Decided to get up early this mor11ing just to have a little time to spare.

D E Nts RBILLY Presenting 320 College Avenue, a swiftly moving collegg murder mystery with a sority house as the locale, the Ianuary class proved their acting ability to two crowded audiences. When suddenly your partner falls dead on the floor in the midst of a gay sorority dance, it's a serious matter. The very annoying and very annoyed Irish detective couldn't solve the mystery, but the president of the sorority eventually discovers the crim- inal. Suddenly the lights go out, the murder attempts escape--then the surprise ending. THREE-CORNERED MOON -Tonkonogy Friday Cast Saturday Cast DAVID Woou ........I Kenneth Rimplegare.. .... - ........

Among the many inexperienced underclassmen who played well was Tom Hyndman. The following week the boys, although vastly improved, lost to a strong Chester team I9-6 in a game featuring a brilliant 70-yard touchdown iaunt by Abington's Sonny Washington. The first home game was lost to Lower Merion in a battle which exhibited fine defensive work by lack Boeve and Ed Wineburg, linemen. A fast Upper Darby team gave the Abington gridders, who played their poorest game of the season, their fourth trouncing. 26-0. Win number one came when the Ghosts downed Coatesville 18- the entire team showinv s iirit , . n rj I plus. The following week, in a non-league battle. F00'l'BALL the Ghosts rolled over Friends Central 51-0-a iield day for Abington backs with Whittingham leading the parade. Valley Forge managed to gain a I5-I3 tie by a last-minute touchdown in spite of the inspired playing of the Ghosts. Most brilliant of defensive games was the Rad- nor tilt, when the Ghosts stood in the shadow of their own goal posts again and again and held. A last-minute touchdown via a pass gave Radnor a 0-0 win. It was generally conceded that Cheltenham would win the Turkey Tilt, but Abington vowed that the Panthers would have to fight every inch of the wayg and, though the final score was I8-6, Abington put up a splendid fight and actually out- gained Cheltenham. e '-suamfe-A-E-1 -Ml- X 5 y HOCKEY . 5 A D.

Led by Captain Catherine Phy, the stick-wielders gained a moral victory when they deadlocked the highly-rated Cheltenham hockeyists 1-I. Doris Pfoertsch, tricky center forward, captained the Northeast Suburban varsity while four other Abington co-eds gained berths on the second team. SUCCEB Abington's soccermen started their 1939 season well, tying Whitpain, defeating Haverford, and then blanking Hatfield. However, these were the only victories the team won except its 2-I upset of a powerful alumni squad. The Ghosts were defeated twice by Lower Merion, Upper Darby, and Berwyn, and once by Hill School, Whitpain, and Haverford. Lettermen included Robert Cochran, Walter Quay, Leonard Sautter, Graham Fling, David Calderwood, Harry Kelly, Russell Keyes, Ralph Chubb, Alfred Holmes, George Provo, David Krueger, and Fred Cunningham. 82 GIRLS' BASKETBALL Edith Chubb Eleanor Nehlig Doris Pfoertsch Grace jenkins jane Scott jane McCahill, captain BOYS' BASKETBALL Augustine Penecale john Sawchuclc William Gibb Tom Hyndman Clark Cutting Joe Gregor Walter Quay GIBLS' BASKETBALL Four wins, four losses, and one tie is the record the girls' basketball team made this year.

The Abing- ton team bowed to Norristown, 30-73 Upper Merion, 34-30g Lansdale, 27-26, and Spring- Held, 47-27. The varsity, coached by Miss Sarah Loudon, consisted of: guards, Edith Chubb. Eleanor Nehlig, and Doris Pfoertsch, and forwards, Grace Ienkins, lane Scott and lane McCahill, captain. B0YS9 BASKETBALL Although the record uf the boys' basketball team, one win out of thirteen, is a sad story for Abington sportslovers, here, at least, was a team which never quit even though hopelessly behind. Ienkintown was the one team defeated. Augustine Penecale holds the scoring honors of the squad by compiling a total of 172 points for the season. 'Wisty' was closely followed by Iohn Sawchuck, Bill Gibb, and Tom Hyndman, who gained 42, 41 and 40 points respectively. Other regular members of the team were Clark Cutting, Ioe Gregor, and Walter Quay. Coach George F. Erb was assisted by Robert I.

In suite of this fact, the Jros Bccts for I I look ver hrifht as the so homores show much 1 I 94 Y is I promise and have already proved a lug asset. Jeanne Habhegger, sophomore, was high scorer for the season. Althoufh the virls did not make an im vressive record, actual statistics show that ls 2- D l they were outscored hy only three points.

The three teams to defeat the Maroons were: Norristown, 28-31: Eddystone, 29-373 and Pottstown, ZS-37. In the sulmrhan district meet at the University of Pennsylvania, Robert Dippy hroke the meet record in the 220-yd. event for the second straight year.

Although Coach Snodgrass' wrestlers started the season in very poor style, the team finished with four wins and three defeats. The Maroons dropped the Hrst three meets, losing to Lower Merion, 27-63 to Chel- tenham, 28-3, Roy Zackey gaining the only points, and to Lansdowne, 22-Q. With decid- edly improved form, the grapplers won the four remaining contests. Abington defeated Upper Merion, 20-17, by virtue of good wrestling by Hugh Scott and Iimmy Pinkham: Haverford, 29-8, Upper Darby, 20-17, and Penn Charter, 25-8. GULF Although only two lettermen, Augustine Penecale and Sam Penecale, returned from last year's golf squad, the three vacancies left by graduation in Coach E. A. Brunnefs team were ably filled by Pete Di Palantino, Kenneth Shaknitz, and Ioseph Gregor. In the early season matches, these inexperienced linksmen admirably assisted the two veterans in beating a strong Upper Darby team, 1253 to zk, at home, defeating the Chel- tenham squad, 12-3, and trouncing the Ienkintown quintet, I4 to I.

Takiiig a second in the first triangular meet with Upper Darby and Olney, the Ghosts' only setback in a dual meet came at the hands of Norristown. Trouncings for Lansdale. Germantown, Ambler, and Olney and a default by Chester brought prestige to the runners. An iniury to previously undefeated Captain joe Morgan destroyed fXlJlIlglOHlS hopes for a first place in the Suburban Championships. TRACK So far this season, the track team has many promising candidates. some of whom have already proved their ability. The relay team that went to the Penn Relays did something that had not been done before by an Abington teamg they placed third in the mile relay. This team consisted of Sonny Washington, Richard Harley, Newton llunsberger, and Max Pincus, running anchor. VVith four more maior meets to be run, the team has a good chance to show its strength.

Abington started out with hope of regain- ing the suburban crown despite the fact that only two players were back from last year, Al Playford and Ed Iohnson. Since the team as a group was rather inexperienced, the helding at First was erratic: however, consistent hitting brought the boys from behind to down Lower Merion. Coach George F. Erb is especially interested in his hurlers, Tom Hyndman, Al Armstrong, and Dan Kennedy, because these three excellent moundsmen will all return next year. Al Playford and Ed Derby shared catching duties, while Roy Fay covered thirdg Walt Dusch, shortstopg Ed Iohnson, secondg and Iohn Easton, First base.
