Secretaries, telephone operators, engineers, janitors, bus drivers, custodians, and cafeteria workers— all these play their part in making Abington the fine school that it is. ' -' - ' 'Dad' Turner, Scott Fry, Mrs. Chubb, Jim Condy, Doris and Mildred, Mr. Cunningham, Miss Nunn, Mrs. Murphy, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Ambler"The grandeur that was Rome.” Look it up in the library. English to speak, to write, to read, to think. Mais le francais! Quille langue! Learning Is Our Business Service is the underlying principle of all that is taught and learned at Abington. Teachers serve by giving pupils the opportunity to develop their abilities; pupils, by taking the fullest advantage of this opportunity. Graduates who win scholastic honors in college help to maintain Abington's fine reputation for thorough training. Hundreds of men, now serving in the armed forces, gained a foundation fcr this service in the classrooms at Abington High School. English and Languages While recognizing the requirements of those students preparing to enter the armed services, Abington's English and language classes still carry on with their sound instruction in fundamentals, necessary to all pupils in time of war and in the peace to fellow. 52Science, History . . . In this fast moving age, when new inventions and discoveries challenge our understanding, Abington's excellent training in math and science has laid the foundation for many a successful career. Through history we comprehend past and present; through science we explore the future. Biology, Chemistry Geometry, Algebra Bookkeeping, History 53 Health, Home Economics . . . A healthy body, a comfortable heme, an appreciation of beauty—those every American wants. Classes in physical training and hygiene help students to acquire and keep the first. In the Cottage, girls learn the fundamentals of home-making. Art classes increase both skill and appreciation. 54They Learn By Doing Shops... When Abinglon inaugurated its shop course, the School Board's purpose was to train boys for industry. In the past few years, many boys have entered the outside world equipped with sound knowledge and training to earn a living and to help the war effort. Drafting, Electric, Wood Machine, Auto, PrintingLeathercraft, Badminton, Dramatics, Stamp and Bond, Camera, Chess, Ping Pong, Knitting, Public Affairs Clubs Abington's numerous and varied clubs help every student to find a worthwhile hobby or, if he already has one, to pursue it under expert guidance. Beys and girls with common interests learn to work and play together. 56Come and Trip It As You Go Students find fun and recreation at dances held in the school gymnasium. Dances this year have been sponsored by the Student Council, Latin Club, French Club, Parent-Teacher Association, junior class, and two senior classes.
