Now that the second World War has ended, those who answered America's call before completing their courses have finished their high school education in other high schools or earned the needed credits through the U S A F l program.

L 1 Opening night on the football scene found the Ghosts, play- ing under the arcs for the first time in the history of the school, white-washing Mastbaum, 30-U. After this opening success, the grid- ders, coached by Glenn Snodgrass succeeding Ed Seltzer, finished out their season with four more wins, a tie with Haverford, and losses by close scores to Lower Merion and Chester. In the suburban Big Six, the Maroonmen inaugurated their campaign with a 6-6 tussle with the Fords. Then after a I3-7 non- league setback at the hands of Chester, the injury-riddled Ghosts suffered a heart-breaking 7-O defeat by Lower Merion. Though statistically outplayed, the Aces scored early on a blocked kick and defended that seven-point lead despite repeated thrusts by Abington inside the Lower Merion ten-yard line. With their in- jured players back in fold, the Maroons breezed through their re- maining four contests, downing Bristol, Norristown, and Radnor with little difficulty. Aided by a brilliant second half defense, the Ghosts trounced previously unbeaten Upper Darby. PIGSKI FOOTBALL VARSITY LINE A Henry, Stein, Gaines, Pietchke, Garvin, Watton, Brown.

Starting out on the wrong foot with Doylestown perked up the Maroon ele- ven to hold their old traditional con- querors, Abington Friends, in a scoreless tiep then, taking a turn for the worse, the Maroons fell under the sticks of Hatboro and Ienkintown. Monday, October 23, the turning point of the season, found Abington tying the always strong Springfield team, l-l, and from then on our lassies took the victors' seat, only to share it once in a l-l game with Ambler.

Of the sixteen engagements held, the hooters gained one tie and five decisions. The main feature was a l-O vic- tory over Haverford. O'Hara, besides being renominated for All-Suburban h o n o r S, was chosen to play for the Phila- delphia All-Scholastic team in a show with an All-Star corn- pany from New York. Tom Dunlap, who accompanied Eddie on the first All-League team, and Tony lackson, who ' ' - ...R ' J received second team mention 1.5.5 5 from the critics, were the other two strongest characters.

CROSS-COUNTRY A new sport, in the form of cross-country, was revived in Abington's fall sports pa- rade this year, after a lapse of five years. Bill Leeds, indefatigable Ghost harrier, stole the show as he led the Maroon team to five victories in seven dual meets, including a trouncing of a Lower Merion troupe and L two one-sided engagements with Chelten- T ham. Leeds' second places in the District and Marcus Hook performances, plus the team's fourth places in both, proved a big hit. Even though Bill was disqualified from his District place, he still was billed as one of the five best in the state.

T AUTUMN HEADLI ERS Abington lifted the curtain on its fall season with the blaring band and the peppy cheerleaders spurring the Galloping Ghcsts to football victories against their per- ennial rivals in the Suburban League. Although there were fewer pre-game pep rallies this year, the band and cheerleaders helped the students rock the rafters of the gym with the traditional music and some new cheers. The highlight of the pep rallies came when "Spence," the gym custodian, took the spotlight to air his opinions and views about football and sportsman- ship before a packed house. Another headliner in Abington's fall activities was the sports broadcast over station WFIL with Upper Darby Two of the Ghosts stars were interviewed as were two f the Royals before the surprise guest Ed Allen of the University of Pennsylvania s football team was presented Stealing the show from the boys who starred in this fall season the girls again selected the lad of their choice for the annual Latin Club Turnabout and escorted him for an evening of fun and frolic As a climax the music department presented a memorial service in memory of those Abingtonzans who fell during World War ll Assisted by the A Cappella Choir alumni prominent in the musical world returned to pay musical tribute to their honored classmates as the curtain fell on this first act Assisting by writing publicity for Abingtons l946 47 produ tion was the lunior Fourth Estate headed by Rus sell Dilks and Catherine Strachan and advised by Miss Gertrude L Turner This organization phoned late sp rts results in to the Philadelphia papers and sent news con cermng the activities of the school and township to the local papers thus informing many people of the past present and future attractions at the Old York Road School n the hill Dilks Works with I F E News Gutherers Abnngtons Iumor Fourth Estate Callmg I F E News on Way to Lo cxl Prmters A Af Sophomore Class Ottxcers and Sponsors STANDING S cnscrs l S ooaruff Mrs Powell I Furniss I st Vi c res iiiam cr Trfas a s ll Ft L Gain s A I n 1 .ire t Q I I I r 0 , ' , . .

'U' W 1 if Qul 4X 1, ' lt 4' it X1 e ' fl! Boys in Assembly CLASSES, CLUBS - During the year, students, for the most part, showed a keen interest in their sub- iects. The scientific and engineering groups had to struggle with "the Gil," THE RETURN OF THE NATIVE, and trigoncmetry, to mention only a few. As usual, the generals had the privilege of choosing from the diversified subjects in the curriculum. The commercials worked harder than ever at their typing and shorthand in order to prepare for the business world: the classicals were still plugging along at their beloved Latin: and the vocationals gained practice in their chosen trade. This combination cf work and plea- sure was such a success that even the severest critics could find little fault. Sewing Club Boys' Etiquette Club 'TOMORROW THE WORLD' Through the efforts of I. lra Kreider and the Public Affairs Club, Robert Wal- lace, son of the former vice-president, came to Abington to present his views cn our relations with Russia. This was only one of the many interesting fall assembly programs, which also included a fascinating pottery demonstration, stu- dent forums, and musical features. Clubs continued to play an important part, with a variety of activities rang- ing from gymnastics to needlework to give each student the choice of his hob- by. Many of the clubs helped in as- semblies, dances, and newspaper work: but perhaps the Public Affairs Club de- serves especial credit for its diligent work in presenting forums for Abington- ians and in cooperation with other schools.

Lissfelt as director, the Student Council managed a variety ot activities, supported by the entire stu- dent body. Early in the year they enlisted membership tor the Iunior Red Cross, handled a successful subscription campaign tor the ORACLE, and unveiled Kilroy at their Witches' Whirl. At Christmas time, the Council collected the annual donations of oranqes and toys for Christ's Home. To climax their work, they sponsored the Heiter Drive, raising over SZUU to pur- chase Agathei tor hungry Europe. Presentation of Civic Attitude Awards at the conclusion of each semester rang down the curtain on Council work. Z Z-Z o i Q 27 o f o 5 wa? 4' 5 fff ef 4E2,4 X T, if fl' A r OOO 4 l' ' '. f 2.

'THE ICEMAN COMETH' Opinion on foreign and domestic affairs, pre- sented in student fcrums under the guidance of I. Ira Kreider and the other history teachers, aroused much thought in the minds of students. Climaxing this work came the Temple Mock Congress, at which Russell Dilks represented the Speaker of the House. His gavel controlled the activities of over 2,000 students. The ABINGTONIAN Valentine Dance, a new so- cial event, and the lunior Prom on March l4 at- tracted many students and alumni. Among all these pleasures, there were scme un- happy mornents. The Whole student body, and the boys in particular, felt deep regret when three charming young practice teachers returned to Bea- ver, and the mid-term exams provided their usual number of anxious, laborious hours. Recognition in the field of art was brought to Abington by Peggy Rcckenstein when she won a SCHOLASTIC award for costume design. The band room was the scene of much activity as Mr. Smith introduced several "boogie Woogie" numbers into the band's repertory. Under the editorship of loan Hoffman, the OR- ACLE staff worked efficiently so that each student might receive his copy by Christmas. This holiday issue, filled with interesting verse and stories, and attractive art, was awarded a first place by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. Amidst all these activities, the students still found ample time to frolic in the blanket of snow which covered Abington during February. In February, too, the Student Council ccmpleted its drive for funds to send a heifer to the starving people of Greece. Led by Richard Painter, the Coun- cil collected enough to pay for a considerable por- tion of a second cow. ORACLE srnrr , ' ,J-..

This year's footlight fantasy, FANNY AND THE SERVANT PROBLEM, a laugh-packed comedy by Ierome K. Ierome, saw the lights December' 6 and 7, 1946. Fanny, played by Terry Eckert and Estelle Sommers, found herself in trouble when she discovered that the servants of her newly-acquired aristocratic spouse CBill Armstrong and Clem Darby? were her own relatives. Laughs followed loud and fast as she struggled to get out of her predicament. A little battle- scarred and weary, she finally extricated herself for the inevitable happy ending. Intermission music Was provided by the orchestra, directed by Leon- ard B. Smith. The amateur fcotlighters turned in many sterling and startling performances.

This victory, added to those of 1937 and 1939, fulfills the requirement for permanent possession. Gaining seven victories in eight official meets, the girls romped past all but a strong Trenton High team. Sev- eral individual stars on the Abington team turned in fine rec- ords. Swimming without Iane Porter, one of the mainstays of the team, the girls took a fifth place in the lnterscholastic Meet. Iane Porter took two first places in the junior high sec- tion of this meet.
