The Oracle Yearbook 1949 As we of the graduating class of 1949 gaze into the future, we realize that we have come a great distance in the past few years. Now before us lies a world full of opportunities. Graduation is just a milestone in the exciting adventure of living. Behind us lies the past, affectionately remembered; before us stretches the future, boldly challenging. At Abington High School we have been trained mentally, physically, socially to become active citizens in the world of tomorrow. Here, then, is our Yearbook to show you what Abington has given us and what we have given it.

Our School Board, superintendent, and administrative staff are continuously looking ahead to the future of Abington township. We need only glance across the rood to see the most recent example of their forethought—the new athletic fields. For further proof, consider the plans now under way to enlarge the-several elementary schools as enrollment increases. Thanks to the constant planning of the present staff and their predecessors, Abington has risen from an insignificant rural school system to one of the best in the state. Our Superintendent Ur. Raymond H. While and School BoardE. B. Gernert This is Our Principal Ever since Eugene B. Gernert become principal of Abington Senior High School, he has been ready to help and to advise each student of every class. Constructive criticism and deserved praise he has delivered honestly and fairly. His kindly understanding, his sincere interest in boys and girls, and his genuine desire to keep Abington at the top among suburban high schools have won for him the respect and admiration of all. His inspiring leadership is exemplified by the success of our alumni. To Mr. Gernert, our counsellor and friend, we acknowledge with gratitude a debt that we shall appreciate even more as the years go by. Senior president gets advicePresenting As we look down the roads leading to tomorrow, we think with gratitude of those who have showed us the way. We call them "teachers", but we know they are more than that, for each one of them has not only ably instructed us in our courses of study but has guided us toward better living. We must not only be taught how to earn a living but must also become adept Top Row HELEN ADAM Beaver, B.S. . . Commercial . . Faculty Secretary. W. H. ALBRIGHT Muhlenberg, B.S. . . Penn, M.A. . .

They have sponsored and encouraged such extra-curricular activities as Student Council, clubs, competitive sports, publications, dramatics, and dances, and have, in short, prepared us to be responsible, socially adjusted citizens. 7Art and music—the finer and more beautiful things of life—have been woven by the teachers into the pattern of our school days. Through physical training and hygiene and home economics, our instructors have trained us in more practical matters of everyday living. We now realize that so-called "minor" subjects are really of major importance in giving each of us greater understanding of ourselves and the world about us. First Row CHARLES C.

With the inauguration of the homeliving course, taught by Mrs. Wyatt, Dean of Girls, both boys and girls are learning the fundamentals of marriage and family life. Home economics courses provide excellent training in sewing, cooking, and housekeeping. Abington's attractive, well equipped cottage offers an ideal setting for these classes. Physical training and hygiene help us to develop strong bodies and to keep ourselves in healthy condition. Every senior girl takes the home nursing course under a trained nurse. Sports in season, gymnastics, folk and tap dancing, marching—all add variety to our gym classes. Home-living class cleans house. Classes At Work Physical ed classes are fun. They'll soon be making their own clothes.Ed explains vacuum pump to attentive chemists. The 64, binomial theorem, the 76, Boyle's law, Pythagorean theorem—all left us something more than a headache. With their increasing importance in the atomic age, a knowledge of science and mathematics is almost essential. In the social as well as the business world, the accuracy, honesty and open mindedness taught by these subjects will pay off in more intelligent citizens tomorrow. Science end Math Challenge Experts Janet demonstrates theorem.French class holds recording session. One easy way to classify a person is by the English he uses in speaking and writing. Still more important is his ability to comprehend through reading what is going on in this chaotic world. In order that our graduates may use language effectively and read intelligently, the English department gives all students a well rounded program of grammar, composition, and literature. History courses include current events as well as a knowledge of the past. Students in language classes, besides learning a foreign tongue, gain a better understanding of the culture and customs of foreign lands. Horizons Widen History class knows answers, Pat. Literature holds class's Closses use library for search, interest.As we move out into the world of business, we look back and find that our commercial course has prepared us for the future in many ways. It has not only given us the necessary foundation of English grammar, letter writing, and a wide field of commercial subjects, but it has also taught us how to deal tactfully with other people, often under difficult conditions. The use of the many office machines—typewriter, adding machines, calculators, telephone, switch board, dictaphone, and duplicator—has acquainted us with actual business experiences and equipped us to succeed in almost any type of office work.

Everyone respects and admires this specially selected group of girls, who are chosen by their classmates for their character, congeniality, and scholastic ability. Taking charge of the service desk and ushering at school productions are only two of the many services which the Internos club performs. Public Affairs Club Representing Abington in forums, debates, conferences, and radio broadcasts, the Public Affairs Club and debaters work under the guidance of J. Ira Kreid-er. These world-minded students are well abreast of current affairs and domestic problems. The Public Affairs Club gives an excellent foundation for the active, thinking man of tomorrow. Internos initiation tops the agenda. Election returns interest debaters. Art Club Art students started the year with a record production of colorful posters which greatly aided the Township Bond Issue. Throughout the year, the young artists work industriously for various school affairs, making posters, attractive stage sets, and unique dance decorations. Girls and boys who started art work at Abington now are making art their profession. Library Helpers Before, after, and during the school day, a group of girls help Miss Briggs in the library. While these girls are recording incoming and outgoing books, taking inventory, and doing general library work, they are not only serving the schcol but are gaining valuable experience for a vocation that some may enter after graduation. Librarians ponder Dewey Decimal system. Artists design fashions.Hobby Clubs One sign of a progressive high school is its variety of activities. At Abington every Wednesday all the pupils spend one period in the club o their choice. Each student has a chance at the beginning of the school term to select a club in which he is most interested or to help start a new club; consequently, 35 clubs have been formed, ranging from Chess to Social Dancing. Some clubs are divided into sections to accommodate the large number joining or to provide greater variety of activities. While clubs help to relieve the monotony of regular classroom work, they do much more than just that for us. They develop our interest in worthwhile hobbies; they train us in leadership and cooperation; they gain us new friends; they may even start us on a vocation. In future years, we shall spend many happy leisure hours following the hobby we first learned to enjoy in our high school club. Knit one, purl two. Whose move, Lindfors' or Miller's?

Opening the season with small experience but high spirit, Abington's Ghosts played Central to a 6-6 standstill under the arc lights. The Ghosts appeared heading for another tie with Haverford until late in the fourth quarter Sam DeTrent bolted 45 yards off-tackle to score the winning touchdown. The first loss came when the Carroll-men reeled before Lower Merion's larger and more experienced team, 21-7. With Henry Burnett scoring two touchdowns, one in the final seconds, Abington squeezed past Bristol, 15-14. The ensuing game with Upper Darby was just as exciting, although it was defensive play that gave the Ghosts the victory. All the Ghost fans could still see that Upidah was heading for paydirt 'til Burnett snagged him after a 50-yard chase. The league was thrown into a three-way tie when Chester, after losing to Abington, 13-2, edged Lower Merion, 7-6. Aerials from Bob Dicker to Pete Fetterolf scored two touchdowns to stop an equally air-minded Radnor eleven, 19-7. When the traditional Cheltenham game was resumed after a lapse of two years, the rivals met in a sea of mud, battling each other to a standstill for three periods. Then a disastrous fumble on the two-yard line gave Cheltenham a touchdown. Final score, 6-0. Top Row—Heron, Klauder, Nice, P. Harvey, Kern, Souer-mon, J.

However, coming back strong in their next game, the Ganttmen defeated Upper Darby, 3-1, to become involved in a tie for first place in the suburban league. In their following league games the Ghosts won one, tied two, and lost two, finishing second to Lower Merion. Captain Tony Washofsky gained a berth on both the All-Suburban and All-Scholastic teams, while Alan Quay and Bob Smith gained places on the All-Suburban, Bill Carter receiving honorable men- Rugged alumni game tion.Hockey Hockey Coached by Mrs. Jane Scott Triol, who used to play for Abington, the hockey team won two, lost four, tied two. After a 4-1 loss to Ambler, the team perked up and outscored Jenk-intown and Hatboro before Spring-field broke the two-game streak. Defeat by Radnor brought disappointment, but the closely contested Cheltenham game ended in a 1-1 tie, followed by a duplicate tie with Norristown. A fine new field awaits next year's team.

However, in the first two weeks of the season, the harriers met with discouraging defeats at Lonsdale and Upper Darby. Bouncing back quickly, the Maroon team shut out Ambler in its first home meet but lost a close one to Norristown. Then the team got hot! Romping away with successive victories over Chester, Lower Merion, Springfield, and Haverford, the Ghost runners piled up four wins in a row to finish their scheduled season in a blaze of glory. Placing fourth in the District meet, the varsity qualified for the state championships, where the harriers captured eighth place, outrunning both Upper Darby and Norristown.

However, when the final count was taken, the Ghosts had four wins, twelve losses, and a last place in league ratings. There were no easy games on the Maroon and White schedule; all victories were hard earned; and three defeats— Ben Franklin, Cheltenham, and Haverford—were due to last-minute goals by the victors.

Three returning lettermen—Ulrich, Higgins, and Carter—together with several newcomers—O'Brien, Washofsky, and Allison—formed the backbone of the squad. After losing their first two meets, the mermen olso dropped a tough battle to West Chester by a 36-30 count, come back to win two meets in a row, then lost to Coatesville. The team's outstanding swimmer proved to be Tom O'Brien, who amassed a total of 66 points, capturing five first places in seven dual meets. Top Rovr — Higgins.
