Yvith affection and gratitude she will be esteemed by those who knew her in the twenty-five years she taught at Abington. Principal presents jewelry gift. MR. FRANK Mc'CLl,li,XN A familiar figure in the Vocational Department for more than thirty years, Mr. Frank McClcan is remembered by the student body as one who taught them that a car is to be handled with respect and that strict adherence to trallic regu- lations is only another name lor connnon cour- tesy. To these ex-pilots in appreciation of their serv- ice and loyalty to the student body of Abington High School, we dedicate our YEARBOOK, Cold watch given by faculty at tea. xy ,, V 'Wh ,sn 1 .11 - - . ,- -11-J -4:1 , --, .I 1".',1l.. 5 ' " K1-'11 ' , f ., . -A:-l. 611. 7 I . gg, 1 '. .vi 4 3, ' ' ---1 0- . 1' ,' ' ,. 4 ,.5,?'

The men and woinen who work together in order that we may become better citizens are continually trying to hold high the tradi- tional standards of Abington. Dr. O. H. English, our superintendent, and the School Board are kept busy planning for our ed- ucation and providing additional facilities for our growing population. Their unsel- fish service for the students and the town- ship has made Abington a better place in which to live. DR. O. H. ENGLISH Superintendent Umar Able Nwvigw for Mr. Gernert, who knows just what is going on from the latest sports scores to the newest extra-curriculzir activity and its Abington participants, is really "johnny on the Spot." GREETINGS TO THE CLASS OF 1951 Among treasured letters from former students I read: HI also want to take this opportunity to tell you how thankful I am for the training I received at Abington. I shall never forget my three years spent with you." On many occa- sions you and I have discussed the varied activities in our program. Is it not true, that as you have par- ticipated in these activities, you have rendered sincere service to your school and at the same time brought unto yourselves immea- surable benefits? Truly, education is worthwhile when you improve yourself while serving others. This is America at its best. May you continue to serve throughout life. Cordially, E. B.

NIC? ,E pa Inv' i Big shot Bobo entertains the cast. Mother Is a Freshman Amid the tears and threats of a daughter "cut ut by my own mother," the ravings of a frus- rated college dean, the poems and flowers from love-sick professor, Mother triumphed. The por- rayal of the widowed Mrs, Abigail Fortitude Ab- 'ott of "Mother Is a Freshman" was handled by ue Kiel and Pat Wells on December 5 and 6 espectively. No one can forget Sylvia's deep- oiced disdain of college dances, the boasting of Bobo, or the riotous antics of the crowd at Green Iall Girls' Dorm. But the most treasured recol- actions are reserved for the players themselves- hose late night practices, that line that had to be epeated, and the nervous anticipation before the urtain rose. Coaches and stage hands pose for birdie Abigail is surrounded by upper classmen. Sem iozf Play Sitting: D. Cherry, j. Gernert, L. Schlemmer, 1. Schwarz, L.Thompson, S. Kiel. Row I: Edgar, N. Kerr, E.

CONCERT ON DECK Ship's bells sounded . . . all hands were on deck as the orchestra tuned up for "Mother Is a Freshman" and the various dedications of new elementary school additions. Eight students were chosen from the Boys' Chorus and Girls' Ensemble, two hard-working groups who real- ly love to sing, for the District Chorus, conducted by john H. Raymond of Lafayette. Joint vocal and instrumental groups brought out the best for the Christmas and Easter programs, Gala Night, and the Spring Festival.

Students and faculty worked to- gether to produce a memorable Yuletide. Dur- ing this festive week, the A cappella choir daily caroled through the halls. To climax the joy- ous season, the various musical groups combined voices to present an inspiring program of sacred music. In keeping with the spirit, Abingtonians col- lected money for the purchase of a record player for our affiliate in Germany. ,til ai Al Cappella B X YQ Z 4 A' Q t W All voices join in the Hallelujah Chorus A ff-'P a' ' if , .G fi 4 gf I E -2 .

The Assembly Committee composed of faculty and students is kept busy providing speakers, pep rallies, films, and talent shows to be presented to the student body for their enjoyment and instruction. During the first semester, assemblies were greatly curtailed. When the fire towers were being built 'and several exits were temporarily blocked, it was too haz- ardous for large groups to meet in the auditorium.

Wrestling Squad Our grapplers, led by their undefeated team-mates - Ted Kitson, Phil Harvey, and Dave Pepper - had a nearly perfect record in their nine matches, losing only to Upper Darby and Cheltenham. They triumphed over Lower Merion, Yeadon, Springfield, Lansdowne, Haverford, and Bristol twice, scoring 314 points to their opponents' 106, to claim a .777 average for the season. Rady on the right.

During practice Hartshorne shot a 100 with 10 perfect bullseyes. Only Set-ly and Captain lilaydon will be lost by the diploma route, thus leaving Coach Clark good prospects for next year. IxmcI1115.

The next week a bitter- fought battle with Central ended scoreless. But the Ghosts were on the rise and handed Haverford a 13-0 defeat. The Lower Merion size and replacements proved the margin, 20-7, as a blocked kick and a succeeding tally in the fourth quarter overcame the Ghosts' 7-6 lead, resulting from joe Dinkins' 15 yard end run. Again, a blocked kick by Coatesville, also in the final period, caused a second disheartening defeat by an 8-7 edge. ?AlLL Harvey's off tackle thrusts through Cheste line.

A strong offensive, spearheaded by Bob Bailey's two touchdown runs, enabled the 19-7 victory over a good-sized Upper Darby squad. Luck held. Bob Frick's blocked kick and John Lucas's tackle in the end zone gave Abington a 2-0 margin over Chester in the battle in the mud and second place in the Suburban League. The last quarter jinx prevailed at Norris- town when two scores in the dying three min- utes brought the 13-7 loss. Climaxing the season, a blocked tryffor-point by Wallie Car- roll, the successful placement of Bob Frick, and the sparkplug running of Ted Kitson supplied the 7-6 victory over Cheltenham. ,- I Kmart.

Playing their arch rivals in the rain, the Ghosts lost a heartbreaker, their first league contest, to the Panthers 5-4. Inexperience at bat and a stalled veteran attack caused the diamondmen to drop their next four games to Lincoln, Upper Darby, Norristown, and Chester. Anyone of these games could have been won by an opportune hit. YVith Haverford and Lower Merion still untried, the remainder of the schedule predicts a fair season for the team. Row I: R, Liuzzi, I.

Ullrich, Ely, and Waeltz gave gool support at the bottom of the lineup, too. Norristown, though, provided a rude surprise in the opening contest as the Eagles jolted the Maroons 4-I.

Other leading contenders were pole vaulter OBrien, broad jumper Har- vey, high hurdler Dennis, miler C. Miles, and shot putter Deane. At the Penn Relays on April 27 the track- sters made a creditable showing by pacing the mile in 3:32 for a close second to Cheltenham. On Saturday the team placed third.

Industrial art offers variety. lVill we ever forget those first days when we were learning our way around the unfamiliar halls? During assemblies how impressed we were by Mr. Gernert who made us aware of the necessity of securing sufficient credits, of exhibiting proper as- sembly decorum, and of upholding the high school's esprit de corps. As loyal Abingtonians we bought A. A. tickets, subscribed to the various publications, attended the many social affairs held throughout the year, and followed the tradition of wearing maroon and white on Fridays. With our Soph Hop, held in October, came a sense of belonging socially. We got an opportunity to make many new acquaintances. The entertain- ment showed considerable talent among the sophs. plebgs Leaving the lowest rung of the ladder, we con- fidently looked forward to being juniors. Row I: B. Kiefer, L. Kruhm, J. Hull, J.
