While you have been away defend- ing this great country of ours, we have tried to preserve those traditions and standards that you remember as Abing- ton's. The world was at war when we en- tered these halls, now we are going forth to make secure that peace which over 1800 former Abingtonians aided in bring- ing about. We graduates have been pre- paring to take our places in the post- war world-educating our minds, build- ing our bodies with sports, filling our leisure profitably with music, dramatics, art, and publications. We did what we could to help the war effort-selling bonds, working in hospit- als, taking war jobs. Fellows went into service right out of our classes-some never to come back. Yet we haven't changed, Jim. We still rush madly for the lunch line and buses, twosomes still walk the track, we still crowd the gym for rallies and yell at games. Yes, itis still the same old school, Jim. Turn the pages and you will see.

TRUMP, MAINTENANCE ENGINEER FREDERICK W. HILL, SECRETARY RAYMOND H. WI-IITE, SUPERINTENDENT chool Director During the time you have been away, the School Board has certainly been do- ing a fine job. Remember how athletes walked home or rode the P. T. C. if they missed the first bus out? Now these lucky studes ride home in school buses as late as 6:15. The School Board recently in- creased the amount appropriated per pu- pil for books for the library. If you want help with your individual problems, Mr. Lissfelt has more time to spend advising students. The townshipls comprehensive testing program has also been expanded. The war has changed many things in Ab- ington township, but, as conditions im- prove, the Abington School Board and superintendent will see to it that Abing- ton schools keep pace with the best. Zepp. Miller, Rieder, Hill, Trump. Clem. Jenkins, Holmes, Zackey, Armstrong. White PIII UIPAL E. B. Gernert Secretaries Miss Doris Sllronk Mrs. Albert Armstrong ' ' .-f' ' .r . - . ince Mr. Gernert was principal when you graduated, I hardly need to tell you what a source of inspiration and never-failing guidance he has been to us. Yet with all of his respon- sibilities here, he has not forgotten you boys. Did you know, Jim, that he spent all last summer working with wounded veterans at the Naval Hospital? None of you will forget his faithful correspond- ence while you were away nor his cheery welcome when you came back. Through his leadership, our school has maintained its high standards, even under war con- ditions, and is now preparing its students to face the problems of the post-war world. Commercial . . . Of course, we in the commercial course still think our course is the best in the school. We realize more than ever that with work slack- ening and not so many workers needed in in- dustry the commercial graduate must acquire speed and accuracy to the highest possible degree. Under the di- rection of Mr. Krueger we have sold candy for the flower fund and solicited advertise- ments and subscrip- tfons for the YEAR- BOOK and ads for the ABINGTONIAN be- sides our regular class activities.

Dot translates General . . . Jim, do you remember how many kids always crowded into the general course? Well, it's still just as popular. More students are choosing that course so that they can specialize in music, in art, or in home economics. Of course, there are still some generals who landed in that course when the go- ing got too stijf in classical or commercial or engineering subjects, but that number is steadily decreasing. The gen- eral course offers a well-rounded education with a wide choice of subjects, an opportunity that many students really appreciate. Classical . . . Latin contracts, 64 equations, French verbs, German vocabu- lary, English novels and essays-these are a few of the worries of the overworked classicals. But fortunately it's not all work. Many of you returned servicemen enjoyed the Latin Club's Turnabout Dance, and the school applauded the ceremony of the Vestal Virgins and the Roman comedy given during Latin Week. However, our main objective is to prepare for college-not an easy task now that you returned servicemen are crowding to colleges in such numbers that they are receiving more applications than they can possibly ac- cept. But we know that the classical course has given us an excellent foundation for college work when we do get in, and we've had lots of fun with all our hard study.

Most of the ones you knew are still teaching here, although there have been a few changes. Mr. Roberts and Mr. Seltzer have returned from the Armed Forces. Mrs. Marion Bright Bayne, a former AH S grad herself, is now Miss Herzog's assistant while Miss Anna Miller has joined the commercial department and Mr. Pawling, the history department. You should have seen these busy teachers during the war, Jim. They worked hard for the Red Cross, headed bond drives, and served as blood donors. Mr. Gernert served on the Rehabilitation Staff at the Naval Hospitalg Mr. Smiley did his bit on the Ration Boardg while the whole faculty as- sisted several times in issuing ration books.

They worked long and harcl to keep the name of Abington High School well known favorably everywhere. Along with everyone else, they worriecl through the news, blundereol through a maze of ration points, and over- came serious shortages in the school. In short, Jim, the teach- ers came through with flying colors. Fourth Row- Katharine Mill-er, Englishg Edith M. Milne, Arty Pauline E. Nunn, Foodsg T.

Then when you arrived next morning, how it was all 'miraculously clean again? Well, that wasnit any miracle, the custod- ins did that job with lots of hard work. Lunchtime finds the helpers ft the cafeteria, cheerfully preparing food. All during the day, secre- zries, telephone operator, engineers, and custodians work to keep Ab- igton running smoothly. Every morning and evening, faithful 'us drivers deliver us at our destination. All year school doctors, yurse, and dental technician check our physical condition. A stu- fent really feels grateful to all these helpers who work to make our chool days the best time of our life. 14 ., , rv .I -. H .-1 ,, X , '14 V 51 .'

Our newspaper and magazine continued to make their regular appearance. In the past four years, we've in- cluded a lot of service news as well as school doings, for we've been sending the ABINGTONIAN to hundreds of you alumni in service. Since the entire staff has put a lot of work into the paper, we were proud when C. S. P.

Student Day, when we students substitute for the teachers. was an outstanding event in the school year. Of course, everyone en- joyed those P. T. A. Open Houses in the gym, given with the help of the Student Council. Other out- standing Council pro- jects were the Career Conference and the Christmas donations to Ch,rist's Home. Those hard-working girls, the Internos, were, as always, a de- pendable, helpful group, One of these girls was always at the Service Desk to direct visitors and to run errands, The In- Sernos also ushered at olays and at Com- nenceinent. Every week the J. 7. E. rounded up all ,he school news and jot it to the local and :ity papers.

The Dramatic Club, on November 30 and De- cember 1, gave its version of the melo- drama, PURE AS THE DRIVEN SNOW, full of intrigue, romance, and contemplated murder, with the evil villain trying to abduct the helpless Purity. She was, of course, rescued in the nick of time by brave Leander Longfellow, and Mortimer Frothingham received his just punish- ment. This was the first major Dramatic Club production in several seasons. We seniors selected the popular com- edy, YoU CAN,T TAKE IT WITH YoU. What a crazy h o u s e h old that was! Snakes, fireworks, Russians, and income tax collectors created havoc in the Van- derhof home, ruled by happy-go-lucky Grandpa Vanderhof, whose philosophy of life was not to work or worry about mon- ey but to have as much fun as you could. Herb Chandlee really gave an unusually fine performance as Grandpa, but the whole cast was excellent. Sorry you couldn't be here to see it! DRAMATHI wi Wx' Q. f mv" .. 19- .,qC5vi1 S I ' , 3. . L.

Big Ed brought Abing- ton smack back into the headlines with a second place berth in the Big Six this year. The team eked out a 7-6 win over Penn Charter after losing a 20-0 affair to Haverford the week before. We did what was deemed impossible the very next week by downing Lower Merion, 19-13, for the first time in five years. Dobbins Vocational and Norristown handed ns setbacks, but we came down to earth in time to lick Upper Darby and Radnor.

Although our league standing wasn't anything to brag about, Coach P. T. Gantt's squad was well represented in the All-Scholastic and All-Suburban line-ups. Leonard Blumenthal, Ghost goalie, finished his three-year term as varsity goal tender by gaining a place on the Philadelphia All-Scholastic team. Dick Dunlap and Ed O'Hara grabbed first team positions with the All-Suburb- an e l e v e n, and Leonard Blumenthal, Norman Smith, Nick Vassalotti, and Joe Hutelmeyer were names on the second team roster.

We were not surprised to go down before Hatboro, Abington Friends, 1nd Jenkintown all in succession. However, we staged 1 surprise attack on the lassies from Springfield and held them to a 3-3 tie. With a reserve of energy from this game, we lost to Norristown by only one point. Ambler and Cheltenham came next, and twice again our hockeyists were overcome. Then the last game of the season provided solace for the downcast eleven when they defeated Upper Merion by a one to nothing score, thanks to Virginia Winegard, who captained the team.

Those teams are getting better, too. This year we were a little slow getting started because "Pop:' had lost almost his whole 1945 team and had to work on a crew of green kids. When we lost hue league games in a row, things looked pretty dismal. Then, all of a sudden, we set a cocky Chelten- ham Club on their ear, 25-23. Those green kids had ripeneol. And they proceeded to prove it by upsetting Norristown, Haver- ford, and Upper Darby and tying the league standings into knots.

ES ' K 'nfff' ' " " " ' Zawya' Suburban interscholastic champs in swimming - that's the big news about Uncle Charley Pawlingis mermen, Jim. We never even had a look at the champ- ionship before. What's more, we were un- defeated in league meets, losing only to George School in the last meet of the season. We tied with Norristown and Up- per Darby in the P. I. A. A. district meet, qualified six boys for the regionals, and three for the state finals. Harper added one more to his victories when he won the 100-yd. breaststrolce in the regional meet while Cline and Morrow took sec- onds. Boy, it really was a great season!

With both varsity and intramural pro- grams this season, our girls, coached for the first time by Mrs. Marion Bayne, came out for the squad in such numbers that we had three teams. We were very proud of our varsity, and you will be, too, when you realize that they won six out of nine games. A few of the high- lights of the seasons were the games in which we squelched unbeaten teams such as Ambler and Abington Friends. An- other bright spot was our 29-20 victory over Lansdale, whom we had never pre- viously beaten. In the intramurals, the juniors came through victorious. "' " "" P5 Drexel Institute J. V.

The Penn Charter match was close, but the 23-20 verdict favored as. Haverford, Upper Darby, and Cheltenham defeated as before our lone league win-a 30-11 victory over Lower Merion. We took Perkiomen, 40-0, then met New Jersey's state champ- ions, Washington High, who trampled us, 45-0. That was bad, Jim, but re- member - we DID beat Lower Merion.

Coach Erb's nine won 15 out of 18 games this season, taking the last eight right in a row. We had to play 10 innings to beat Cheltenham and 11 to down Haverford for the title. Kessler pitched a no-run, no-hit game when we beat Lower Merion, 8-0. That makes three championships this year - boys' swimming, Triplett's state title in the 100-yd. dash, and baseball. Ray!

The list is headed by our class president, Dick Davidson, varsity reliable in basketball, closely followed by Louise Huttlin, well known for her work in the band and her piano and organ playing. We have two cheerleaders on our list, Shirley Mills and Jo DeTrent, who also doubles as class secretary. Football is well rep- resented by Student Council president, Dick Gessner, class Athletic Representative, Fred Trimble, Angelo F anelli, and Neal Hethering- ton, publications, by our Yearbook editor, Andy Nehlig, co-editor of the ABINGTONIAN, and Josephine Spitzer, Honor Roll regular. We're especially proud of Harry Harper and Lenny Blumenthal. Harry won both district and regional championships in swimming, and Lenny represented Abington on the All-Philadelphia champ- ionship soccer team. Another soccer player is Dick Dunlap, who won the district title in wrestling in 1945. Betty Stevenson won the Civic Attitude Award several times. Elaine Shutts is one of our bet- ter artists as well as a worker on newspaper and magazine. Carl Wilhjelm took over the leadership of the band when Director Smith was ill last fall. These boys and girls have served Abington loyally, we know you'll join us in paying them this well deserved tribute. NW wk M if Q x W X!

Class Colors: Crimson and Gold Class Flower: Rose In the fall of 1943, nearly 300 sophomores entered Abington High from the two junior high schools. The new class elected Bill O'Boyle president and made their social debut at a gay sophomore party. Bill led the class through their first two years but then left to join the Army. In the senior year, Dick Davidson was elected class president. This class, Jim, has sponsored the usual activities-Junior Prom, senior play, and finally Com- mencement. It has been a good three years, Jim, a time that we will always remember. OFFICERS PRESIDENT Richard Davidson VICE-PRESIDENT Harry Harper TREASURER Jiames Meaney SECRETARY Josephine De Trent A. A.
