AMERICA at Work not at
tive not destructive-America,
a land of great executives and
unknown day laborers-Amen
ica at work to build better
homes, to perfect new inven-
tions, to improve its communi-
ties, to advance the progress of
science, and to make a happy
prosperous nation. 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
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
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.

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?
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-
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
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.

To the classes of 1940:
Your senior year at Abington has witnessed the introduction of broader
vocational and industrial training opportunities for members of your class
and for those who may succeed you. These opportunities of training in the
tain industrial and commercial processes should not be
separated from the realization that employers demand that young people be
l ' l course or in any other selective field of
preparation, may I again urge your careful thought upon the value of growing
in competence in other areas of life and especially of becoming useful citizens

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
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
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.

A CAPELLA Clllllll
Chosen from the music classes, a group of 85 voices form the A Cappella choir.
which sings as a vested glee club. 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.
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.

The ORACLE, the literary magazine of Abington High School, is published twice a
year as an outlet for the creative writing and artistic talents of the students. 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..

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
A club period is an hour Well spent!

The Parent-Teacher Association of Abington High School carried on its
1939-1940 activities under the following ollicers: I. 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.

Decided to get up early this mor11ing just to have a little time to spare.
Spent too much time reading the paper, so I'll just have a cup of coffee for
a.m. Changed my mind, Figuring I need the sleep.
a.m. Up again, but this time to stay. Mother knows best.
a.m. Phew, what hot coffee! Off to school in Bill's car.
M a.m. Here I am already. CIt's only about a mile from home to schoolj
period: Machine shop. There's Howard still making his V-block. My tack
hammer is coming fine, with reservations.
Second period: English. Cassin CE.insteinj Craig stumps the class with his question:
"Who is a whom, and why?"
Third period: Study. This is an excellent opportunity to read some more of Meg0w's
Fourth period: P.O.D. Mr. Smiley just slipped me a dot, and it might just as well
have been a knock-out drop. "Who was Aristotle's kid brother?" On the other
hand, who was Aristotle?
Lunch period: If I get the guy who put water on my chair, I'll slug him one-if he's
smaller than I am.
Fifth period: Chemistry. This is no place for me. .
Sixth period: Gym. Played soccer on the baseball field and almost broke my ankle
doing it. Why doesn't somebody pump up that ball? Who told coach
we can get dressed in five minutes? In my present condition, I wonder what
I should do if we have a HIC drill?
Homeroom: Everybody jumps up when that First bell rings, but we've got to learn to
wait for the second one. A minute is much longer than I ever imagined.
Seventh period: Yeah, seventh period! Mr. Swartz caught me reading that Megow's
4:00 p.m. Ah! A chance to go home at last!
4:15 p.m. At mother's suggestion, I decide to mow the lawn, making a mental note
to make the lawn of my house out of cement, which requires a minimum
of cutting and raking.

T. Boggs Iohns and George B. Nettleton, partners in the Eureka Digestive Pill Com-

which was more important, the pill or the sugar coating. The two gentlemen concerned
decided to play a hand of poker-the winner to take complete charge of the business for
one year and the loser to act as butler to the winner. When Nettleton won by drawing
a pair of sixes, he discovered that his butler hindered more than he helped in the hliarious
comedy that followed.

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.

Attempting to surpass this, the Iune class gave a merry comedy, Three-Cornered Moon,
about a slightly "cockeyed" family, the Rimplegars. With too much money and tool little
to do, mother, brothers, and sister break the monotony by mysterious trips and contempla-
tion of suicide. But Mrs. Rimplegar has been playing the stock market on the margin,
and the family fortunes are lost. Placed on their mettle, the household really go to work
and make something of themselves.

For the first time in years, the football team
got off to a poor start by losing I3-O to the Forders.
who later took the championship. 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.

With fair weather for only one game, the girls' hockey team battled its way to
five wins and three ties, its single defeat coming at the hands of a hard-hitting Spring-
field eleven. 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.
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,

year. The sextet nosed out Lower Merion, 26-24, Clney, 25-13, Upper Moreland, 31-18g
and Conshohocken, 31-18. The Maroons and Ambler fought to a 34-34 tie. The Abing-

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. Rapp. . .

Abington's star wrestler in the I25-POLlIld class, Roy Zackey, again emerged as dis-
trict champion and narrowly missed being state champion, his bout with the hnal victor
running into extra periods.
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.
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.

victories over Lower Merion, 5-4, and Norristown, 5-2, but dropped the opened to Upper
Darby, 6-2, and later bowed to Haverford, 8-5. 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
