Abington Through The Years
Brother, did you say that things have changed? Not too much. The build-
ings are much the same. The trees have grown a little taller, a little thicker.
The familiar paths are worn along the ways we sl1ouldn't gog the campus we
know as well as the palms olf our hands. lt's just that our numbers have in-
creased until at times we may look like Grand Central Station on a day before
the Christmas holiday.
Through the years we've been apt to throw our chests out and brag ol
our versatility. School spirit has helped us make our publications first place
winnersg our leadership has inspired us at college and in business. Vie can
hold our own in good sportsmanship. But we are just high school kids with the
usual lads and fancies.
Come on then and pass in review through the high school all of us know so
Abington High School's memories extend
back to the year 1888, when a two-year high
school was opened in a new elementary school -
now the Administration Building- that had
been bnilt on Boucher's farm. Under the tute-
lage of teaching Principal Ambrose L. Custer,
.lennie McMahon and Annie Tomlinson flater
Mrs. Paul Knightj were the first to graduate
from this new school. The next year four boys
and one girl - Charles A. Ambler, John Blake,
Eloise Leland, john Myers, George Tomlinson
- comprised the senior classa gUnti1 1901, when
the course was lengthenedbfgo-:ye years, there
were .heye more than six gra hates a year. In
1891, l90',"':lfnd 191ffiEither5e were no classes at
CEU-Ru of .
But by 1918, fhdlygyglrollment had increased
enough for the graduatirifflelass to number fifty-
four. These early yeibskitltv Abington featured
a fifteen-minute morning ahdsfaflgsrnoon recess.

In 1908 the original unit of the present senior
high, school was constructed on the site of an
apple orchard whose trees were once sold to
be made into doorknobs. At this time the
county superintendent with the assistance of out-
side teachers conducted final exams. In these
years the school board provided students with
free tickets for the York Road trolley.
Ten years later the first addition to the origin-
al senior high unit was made. The faculty in-
creased to ten, with two of these ten still teach-
ing at Abington - Miss Lilian Reichard and
Miles 15. Messinger.
Increasing enrollment made more additions
to the school necessary in 1923 and 1926. Stu-
dent Council had its beginnings in the year 1927
with the formation of the Boys' Council. The
French Club Dance and Community Night be-
gan in 1928. Mid-year comniencenients, which
began in 1929, did not end until january 1945.
The next decade brought the construction of
the household arts cottage in 1932. In 1937

me in any learning situation than buildings, tra-

One of them stimulated and trained me in writ-

in my decision to teach English. And one of them

Traditions are the common heritage of every
high school student in Abington. Every person
who has ever danced at the Senior Prom, been a
class Thespian, or participated in the Thanksgiv-
ing gridiron clash knows what a vivid picture re-
mains in his mind.
As one who adheres to these long-established
customs, he feels a part of the school's history.
However, looking forward to life in the new high
school now under construction, he is helping .to

As a part of Abington's traditions, each student
is rostered in that course which he and his par-
ents feel best fits his needs.
A student from each of the four courses - the
Business Education, the General, the Vocational,
and the College Preparatory - has expressed his
feelings in his selection.
Students in the Business Education course aside
from the mechanical dexterity are taught other
invaluable skills such as bookkeeping which will
help them secure an even better position in the

Students in the General Course have the best

They have an opportunity to elect from a wide
field. Perhaps their choice is band or A Cappella
for their own pleasure as well as for the enjoyment
of others. Or their choice may he Home Arts or
Fine Arts, both of which provide creative outlets
for those artistically inclined.
Also one may enroll in this course and have
sufficient credits to enter the college of his choice.
Upon graduation, the boy who has selected the
Vocational Course, faces a series of steps, or if you
will, a ladder of success. Anyone of these steps
is complete in itself, the first could be direct en-
trance into a variety of occupations. Further
technical schooling may be the next stage which
will result in a career in mechanical engineering
or one of the related fields.
ln any event the Vocational Course has provided
the high school boy with a background of knowl-
edge and experience.
The College Preparatory Course represents the
sum of many experiences - the classes we attend,
old friendships and the opportunity to make new
acquaintances, and finally co-curricular activities
- sports, dramatic productions, and after-hours
social events. It means developing an interest in
democratic living by learning cooperation. Abing-
ton represents an aid and a step to a brighter and

The backbone of Abington, like any
institution of learning, is its academic
staff and service personnel. Keeping
a friendly eye on our interests and wel-
fare were the supervising principal and
principal who provided the leadership
that helped make Abington a school of
which we are justly proud. t
E. B. fiernert
In his long, faithful service to the youth and
citizens of Abington Township, B. Gernert, who
resigned as principal May 13, has shown exceptional
ability as an administrator. Under his leadership,
our high school has risen to its place among the
best schools of the state. In state and national
meetings, Mr. Gernert has represented our school
and our township so capably that the reputation
of Abington Senior High School has spread
throughout the country. That fine leadership we
shall sadly miss.
In his relations with students, faculty, and par-
ents, Mr. Gernert has been at all times both friend-
ly and fair, winning the liking and respect of both
the students and teachers. The excellent discipline
of the school has won the commendation of all
schoolmen. Curriculum improvement, club -pro-
gram, athletics, community relations, better
school equipment, unusually high scholastic stand-
ing all of these have, under his leadership, given
our high school a top rating among high schools.
Students, teachers, and citizens sincerely regret
losing Mr. Gernert as principal at this critical
point in the history of the high school. All feel
a deep gratitude and loyalty to him for his untir-
ing, unselfish, and excellent service as both teach-
er and principal. To him go our best wishes for
many more years of community activity and per-
Mr. Gernert, a fine man as well as a capable
principal, has given us, during his thirty years of
service, the benefits of his understanding, sympa-
thy, and untiring efforts. His ambition has been
for the good of the students and the school. Abing-
ton won't be the same without him.
President of tl1e Student Council
Mr. Gernert as a man understood our problems: as a friend
willingly listened to them, and as a principal often helped us
find a solution to many of them.
Mr. Gernert has been an able adviser and friend
to all Abington High School students. He has
never been too busy to listen to a pupil's problem,
no matter how trivial. Because of this, many stu-
dents brought their personal problems to him. It
is this friendly atmosphere around school and his
forthrightness that students appreciate and value.
Deep in the hearts of all loyal Abingtonians will
remain the memory of a dynamic leader, a great
principal, and a true friend.
President of the Key Club
As we look back upon the traditions of Abing-
ton, we will cherish memories of Mr. Gernert, who
inspired, challenged, and guided us. We recall, too,
with special warmth, those times when he was no
longer "principal" and we were not "students" but
friends. We regret that he may not be present at
Walter H. Young, jr.
President of the Senior Class
As we, the Class of '55, have studied, served, and
socialized, Mr. Gernert's excellent guidance has
been significant to us. He has never been too busy
to listen to our problems or share our desires. He
has made us want to miss that three o'clock bus to
stay for co-curricular activities. Wie have played on
the teams and published our works, but behind
us has been his ever-encouraging smile and word
of praise. We owe him many unspoken but
strongly felt thanks.

West Scores El Tffs
Because of the winning streak of the 1953 squad,
Head Coach Carroll and Assistants - Schneller,
Pawling and Smith - favored the T formation,
which proved highly successful. The Ghosts rack-
ed up 242 points against their opponents' 59 to
compile a record of 7 wins and 1 loss.
Rollie X'Vest with his smooth ball handling and
running proved to be an ace left halfback for the
T. Taking his aerials were George Long and Gor-
don Biddle, ends. The forward wall consisted of
tackles, Clarke Ivins and Dick Barberg guards,
Robert Brosso and Paul Magrag center, "Chip"
Archerg backs, Dom Ventresca, "Sugar" Dennis,
Steve Murray, and "Duke" Young. Assisting in
these positions were ends, Toni DeFlavis, Peter
Budd, and Sam YVashingtong tackles, Tony Simon-
etta and Carl Holmes: guards, Harry Love and
Dick Zadickg and backs, Ray Marino, Dave Young
and -lim Gentry.
In their opening clash the Ghosts spurred on by
the fine playing of Dom Ventresca met the Golden
Bears who were trampled under foot.
Two weeks later saw the Carrollmen under the
arc lights hold Haverford to a scoreless defeat.

XVhite gridders lost a hard-fought battle to Lower

ln the weeks following Maroon Meteor, Rollie
West, led in a 28-point spree over the Chester
Clippers. The Eagles never got off the ground.
Closing the season the gridders, captained by
Clarke lvins, overwhelmed their York Road rivals,
the Panthers of Cheltenham, whose claws were
clipped early in the game.
just as Ventresca QSGQ started lugging the pigskin on the 15-
yard line, the Cheltenham Panthers came charging in to
stop a long run.

record, beating Upper Darby, Cheltenham, and

In losing to Chester, the cagers, supported by

themselves proud as they came within one field

an average of .303 while first baseman Brosso had
a .500 average with four for eight.
Coach Erb faced great problems in teaching his
proteges the techniques of more efficient base-
running, hitting, pitching, and fielding. A mastery
of these fine points resulted in a better scoring
record in the remaining games of the twenty-
three that were originally scheduled. Leading
league contenders who offered the greatest opposi-
tion for our hard-hitting diamondeers were Upper
Darby and Cheltenham.

Paving the way lor the hand among the cheering
fans were the color guard, majorettes, flag twirl-

perky hats, and intricate formations they dazzled
the spectators in every event in which they par-

dignity as the national anthem was played.

Uratjla Stall llatitlrtls
You are Abington High School. You help
to loster these qualities - school spirit, sports-
manship, leadership, and integrity - which
have made our Alma Mater a school ol which
we can he justly proud. XVith this concept
in mind, the stall set to work to produce an-
other prize-winning Oracle, one ol the most
widely circulated publications. Under the
guidance ol Miss Haldeman, the stall worked
especially hard to record the way you work-
ed, played, and made lriends. The editorial
stall worked hard writing senior personalities,
checking dummies, prooling copy, and eom-
posing captions. The typists and art students,
too, have contributed many hours ol their
time. Moreover, the business stall diligently
sought ads. Through it all everyone has ex-
perienced true teamwork and that leeling
commonly known as school spirit.

As juniors we were the class which could no
longer play the part of innocence nor boast of
superiority. It was up to us to get into the swing
of things. This it might he said we did in May
l95sl. After a close election, Richard Schmauk
was elected presidentg Joseph Foley, vice-president,
Harry Heist, treasurerg and Joy Reber, secretary.
Upon returning to school in September the class
was well represented in various activities. In Stu-
dent Council Steve 'Iones and Harry Love took an
active part. In publications was Brenda Beatty,
sports page editor, as well as Staff XVriters B. X'Vood-
ward, Monroe, NV. Link, M. Denver, D. Saal-
frank, and B. Mackleer. In -HIL most notable were
Lou and Lee Lawver who covered sports. Allan
Smith and Leslie Duer were active in Forum activi-
Of course, Cala Night enrolled many. Included
was the well known boys' quartet - M. Lieber, T.
Mfhitefield, A. Cox, and H. McKinny. Others
were M. Denver, C. Riley, C. Corbett, R. Turn-
bull, N. Voltz, YV. Malone, as well as many chorines
who helped to make Gala Night whirl.
Scholastically, consistently taking honors were
.Ioan Creveling, JoAnn Hargrave, Allan Smith,
joan Monroe, Judith NVurst, Suzanne Pierce, Alfred
Cox, Sidney Homan, Robert Iisterling, Barbara
Xvoodward, Marliese Braitinger, David Powers, and
In the sports world, special attention should be
given Richard Barber, Steve Murray, Dominick
Ventresca, George Long, Harry Love, Richard
Clark, Richard Engelbrink, Nancy Krewson, Mar-
garet Pinder, and Carol Starke.
At the close of the year we put on the gala affair,

Although three hundred and seventy of us wan-
dered aimlessly up and down the stairs and
through the corridors that first day, AHS gradually
became a part of our lives.
After being onlookers for a few short weeks, we
offered our services, too. Those interested in
working for the Alzingtonirzn or some other publi-
cation were Theodore Rights, Edward Farkas,
Frances Miller, NVilliam Clayton, and Marc Silver-
Contributing their know-how to Forum activities
were Edward Farkas, X'Valter Tappert, Nick Mul-

Fred McDowell, Rhoberta Engelbrink, Judith
Goss, Mary Redstreake, Barbara Anderson, Carolyn
Schaaf, Peter Kreisel, Edward Farkas, XValter Tap-
pert and Elaine Cardiene.
Sportswise, Edward Rothenheber and Fred Mc-
Dowell sprinted with the pack of cross country boys.
Link amazed upperclass wrestlers as did Richard
De Flavis, the tankman.
Most active were many of us in the eighth an-
nual Gala Night production. Deborah Peltz and
Janice Waters opened the show as heralds. Gwen
Wunderle, James Mc Anally, Jane Orcutt, Sally Stit-
zinger, Patricia Wright, Dorothy Czarnecki, Joan
Benus, Deborah Bushnell, janet Drake, Gretchen
Funk, Carl Holmes, Jerry Stoltz and Harold
Yerkes, as well as others, helped to make a suc-
In May, class officers were elected to serve for
the coming year.
Looking ahead, we see a bright future for our-
selves as up-and-coming jaunty juniors.

counter is a store in itself.
Here at Murphyfs onc learns retailing from the
hottom up! I started out as an extra salesgirl, work-
ing every day after school. Wllell I was graduated,
I was fortunate to he plat-ed in charge of a counter. I never knew how
really interesting this work could he . . . it's just like having a shop
of my own.
lim growing here, taking more responsibility as I go. Thereis still
more room for advancement . . . I can work myself into a position of
merchandise buyer, section supervisor or lmookkeeper in the oflice. Soon
I hope to he selected to train for the jolm of Personnel Directress in a
large new Murphy Store.
All of us at Murphyls have an equal chance to hetter ourselves.
From what I can see Murpliyfs is tops in training . . . and there isn,t a
store in town to heat Murphy's on limployce lmeuelitsl
If you're ambitious to nialw a "go" of retailing, join the Hflangw
