Means Fun, Work, Progress
This was an important and eventful year - one
long to be remembered. The football team, with
the zealous support of the student body, won the
league championshipg the largest crop of students,
ever, entered to swell the ranks of loyal Abington-
iansg a new school building began to take form.
Abington, typical of its tradition, was striving to
achieve new goals.
Dedicated to the belief that interchange of ideas is
of the utmost importance, Abington began laying
foundations to extend the arc of understanding with
others beyond the limits of its township. Chosen as
the site for next year's Pennsylvania Student Council
Staff members Janet Smith, Barbara Spindell,
Trina Polen, and Mike Gillespie select material
with which to tell the story of the year.
Convention, Abington will play host to student repre-
sentatives from various schools throughout the Com-
monwealthg and, through the affiliation with Lily
Braun Schule, Abington will send a student abroad
to study in Germany as its representative of good
These events are indicative of a special kind of
spirit at work in our schoolg a spirit dedicated to
progress and cooperationg a spirit that emphasizes
the desire to promote understanding with others, a
spirit marked by a high sense of responsibility to the
community, both local and world-wide. These typify
the spirit of Abington - the spirit of the Calloping

Summer's over! There's ex-
citmnent in the air. A tangy fall

The School Board of Abington Township gives
unstintingly of its time to careful examination of
the multitude of details necessary to achieve those
goals which elevate a school from the mediocre to
the superb. Abington's superb reputation did not
come about accidentally. Hard work made it in-
evitable. and the School Board has given liberally
of that hard work.
ln planning a new high school for the town-
ship, the Board prepares a golden future in educa-
tion for Abington students. The new high school,
now in process of coming to life on a lovely forty-
five acre site. promises to be a most valuable con-
tribution to school as well as community needs. De-
signed to house fifteen hundred students, with a
potential for serving even a greater number if
need be, the structure will represent the best in
modern school architecture. ln guiding this build-
ing program from blue print to reality, the School
Board of Abington contributes materially to the
future welfare of the community.
The vision and energies of Dr. 0. H, English, Superintendent, give
form to Aliingtorfs School of Tomorrow.

THE CLASS OF 1055
Juniors at lastll The class of '55 had a wonderful
year. distinguishing itself most notably in sports. Even
before school opened, sports-minded Juniors were
warming up on the football field 4 a maneuver that
brought excellent results. The team went on to win
the Suburban One Championship, with eight Junior
boys receiving varsity letters.
Football, however. was not the only sport about
which the juniors could boast. Smith was the first
team All-Suburban and second team All-Scholastic soc-
cer goalie: T. Del"lavis and R. Mcftlpine were two out-
standing point collectors for thc boys' swimming team,
while li. Zimmerman was the Junior contribution to
Dave Young drives through Upi-
dah in scoring attempt.
the wrestling squad. Turning to basketball, we find
the Class of 755 equally well represented by eight Jun-
ior boys. three of them - W. Pickwell, J. Holmes,
and H. West 3 playing varsity for the second year.
We find the spirit of competition and excitement
was not restricted to sports alone. In the election of
class officers, posters, speeches, and heated debates
characterized the campaigns of the various candidates.
Wfhcn thc air cleared. W. Young had been elected Pres-
ident: li. West. Vice Presidentg Wv, Thompson. treas-
urer: and C. Scholly. secretary.
The school year closes now for a busy junior class.
See you in September!

THE CLASS OF 1956
Sophomore Honor Roll at the close of the third period, first semester:
First Row, left to right: Edwinna Porter. Barbara Andrews. Joann Creve-ling. Gail Smith, Betsy Bassett. Second Row: Sidney
Homan, Allan Smith. Joan Monroe, Barbara Woodward, Nancy Straub, Susan Pierce. David Powers, Alfred Cox, Fred Thomas.
Four hundred nine sophomores entered Abington
this September, breaking all enrollment records in
the school's history. The class, large but well-round-
ed, contributed admirably and in many categories
to the betterment of Abington.
One of the foremost events of the year was the
choice of Gail Smith as an exchange student to our
affiliate school, the Lily Braun Schule, in Germany.
Sportswise. the sophomore class was well repre-
sented. Richard Barber and Alfred Dennis, footballg
Tom Calloway, soccer, Richard Clark, cross countryg
Richard Schmauk, wrestlingg and Arthur Blank, swim-
ming: all earned varsity letters and were exceptional-
ly outstanding in their respective sports.
The sophomore girls. not to be outdone in this
phase. boasted Brenda Beatty, rifle team sharpshooterg
Elizabeth McMeekin and Nancy Krewson, a pair of
basketball and hockey slarlets.
Turning to publications, we find Maria Denver,
Barbara Woodward, and Ellen Snodgrass working to
meet Abingtonian, deadlines. The Junior Fourth Es-
tate counted four sophomores among its members -
Lou Lawver, Lee Lawver, Judy Hayter and Pat Amb-
Front the music department came an exceptionally
talented and equally popular boys' quartet. This
group consisting of Mike Lieber, Hall McKinney,
Alfred Cox, and Tom Whitefield, added a welcome
touch to Abingtonis assemblies and pep rallies.
Band members, Fred Epting and Peter Scanlin,
along with Richard Cagno and Steve Murray. orch-
estra, rounded out the sophomore musical picture.
On the basis of such a record, there seems to be
little doubt that, before graduating in 1956. the sopho-
more class will contribute much to the improvement
and reputation of Abington Senior High School.

snared another one of West's heaves in the first quar-
In the next clash, this determined Abington ag-

Racquet-Swingers of '54 in Good Form
Swinging for a top record, returning veterans, Car-

formed the strong foundation for this year's team.
Striving to win the remaining position on the team
werc Joan Schmidt. Charlotte Gentry. Barbara Motson
and Cynthia Scholly.
The female racquet swingers met the teams of Rad-
nor, Cheltenham, Upper Darby, Haverford, Berwyn,
Lower Merion, Norristown, Lansdowne, Jenkintown,
Springfield, George School, and Abington Friends.
Under the excellent coaching of Mr. Stanis, the girls
again made a fine record.
The 19514 boys' tennis hopefuls were greeted this
spring by a man who was previously associated only
with basketball in Abington. Vernard Fegley set about
trying his hand as a tennis coach with assurance
which augured good results. Sparked by Bill Scar-
lett. first singles, and Jay Bhoads. second singles,
the racquetmen worked diligently toward a success-
The twelve-match schedule included Lincoln, Chel-
tenham. Norristown, Yeadon, Lansdowne, Radnor,

"Ready on the right? - ready on the left? - load

season Dave Clark's sharpshooters had won six of
their seven matches.
The deadeyes, off to-a good start, took West Catho-
lic 493-489. However at their second match, Upper
Darby handed the marksmen their only defeat 491-

to read, write, and criticize each otheris work.
Through the varied school cluh program,

A MESSAGE TO THE CLASS OF 1954
ON SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY
With your graduation, you have, in a manner of speaking, emerged into the
community . . . and you soon will be expected to assume the responsibilities
of a citizen. Primarily, this responsibility requires you to serve your
community: to think intelligently about its problems, to work conscientiously
with your fellow citizens to solve these problems and help build a better
place in which to live. In doing this, you will help build a greater America.
For Americais greatness has its roots in small communities such as ours.
There will be ample opportunity to perform this service regardless of your
future activity, whether, for example, you follow business, law, medicine,
manufacturing, education, insurance, or any other means of livelihood.
And you will find that its performance brings great satisfaction. We know
this to be true, for we speak from experience. Publishing, which is our
livelihood, offers tremendous opportunities to serve the community. And we
have been serving for 60 years.

T0 WIIRK AT M RPHY'
My name is Betty and I have a story which I
think will interest many of you. It's about my ex-
perience in the retailing field. Believe me. Variety
Store business is fast-moving and interesting. Each
counter is a store in itself.
Here at lVIurphy's one learns retailing from the
bottom up! I started out as an extra salesgirl, work-
ing every day after school. When I was graduated,
Iwas fortunate to be placed in charge of a counter. I never knew how
really interesting this work could be . . . it's just like having a shop
of my own.
Pm growing here, taking more responsibility as I go. There's still
more room for advancement . . . I can work myself into a position of
merchandise buyer, section supervisor or bookkeeper in the office. Soon
I hope to be selected to train for the job of Personnel Directress in a
large new Murphy Store.
All of us at lVIurphy's have an equal chance to better ourselves.
From what I can see lVIurphy's is tops in training . . . and there isn't a
store in town to beat lVIurphy,s on Employee benefits!
If ou're ambitious to make a " o" of retailin , 'oin the "Gan "
Y g g I g
at Murphy's soon as you can.
