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 well. 4 i 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.

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 the whole school made weekly radio broad- casts. Abington's Golden Anniversary Yearbook of '38 highlighted Boys' and Girls' Etiquette Clubs, and many other popular organizations. Boys outnumbered girls on the cheerleading squad. three to two. In February of this year, Abing- ton hecame a three-year high school, following six years spent in elementary school and three years in junior high. Beginning another tradition, the Latin Club staged its first Turnabout Dance in November 1938.

Nine years later, war hatreds were forgotten when Abington's affiliation committee brought Christa Gaedeke, from Lili Braun Schule in Ber- lin, to spend a year at Abington. Abington High looks forward to a new life in a new building, we are confident that this history will continue to enrich the school's tradition.

Shaffer Qnee Helen Leffertsj attended Abington Schools from l89G to l906. At the commencement exercises for the three graduates of the class of lflflti were addresses by the valedictorian, the salutatorian and class his- torian, selected according to the highest rating in the class. My entire family, including my two brothers and our three children, graduated from Abington High School, All of the grandchildren are attending the Abington Schools at the present time. I salute the Class of "55" as a member of the Alumni Association. Mrs. Albert B. Shaffer Xlr. Albert B. Shaffer, who attended Abington Schools from l89l to l90l, graduated from the "Old Brown Stone Buildingl' which was built in 1888. At that time the High School consisted of one classroom which contained three classes taught by one teacher Qklrs. Bessie Stewart Engardj. The major subjects were mental arithmetic, history, geography, etomolo-gy, and Latin. The old bell tolled for the opening exercises, recess, and lunch. As l look back fifty-four years and see the prog- ress of the Abington High School, it gives me a feeling of great pride for "Old Abington." Mr. Albert B. Shaffer My stay as a pupil at Abington High School was of rather short duration owing to the fact that I entered as a junior in March l900. Since the Class of l900 had only four members, I was asked to write and deliver the Class Prophecy. After another year of hard studying, our Class of lfltll, consisting of ten pupils, was ready for the Commencement exercises and our diplomas. I have in my possession now my diploma and our class picture. I am very proud of Abington High School, the wonderful work that it has done, and the progress that it is making. Vallee l'Villiams Niblock Teachers have always been more important to me in any learning situation than buildings, tra- ditions, or activities. One of them stimulated and trained me in writ- ing. One of them instilled in me such a love for literature and language that she was instrumental in my decision to teach English. And one of them challenged my thinking' in a field where I lacked facility and had to work extra hard to earn my grades. new teachers replace retired ones, you can still be sure that there will always be someone at Abington who will have made your three years there a valuable part of your life. David R. Cook Through the Years- 19911, 19951945 and 1955 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 establish precedents which shall become a part of that history. 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 business world. Amid a whirl of brief forms and rapid dictation, the future secretaries learn by hard work one of the most difficult of the clerical skills. Typewriters, adding machines, calculating ma- chines, mimeoscope, and voice writers have their place. Class officers of '51 are Secretary .Ioan Norman, Treasurer Roland Young, jr. Students in the General Course have the best onortunit for a liberal education. l l Y 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 better future.

As a result of their careful planning to meet the needs of a community whose population is increasing very rapidly, the Hamilton Avenue Elementary School opened at the beginning of Feb- ruary. Then, too, the new high school, which has been a dream on blue print, is now in the process of becoming a reality on Highland Avenue. This building which is designed to accom- modate fifteen hundred or more stu- dents promises to be a wonderful asset toward meeting school as well as com- munity needs. 1.1'f! In right: Nathan S.

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- sonal happiness. 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. Gordon Biddle 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. Chip Archer 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 our graduation. 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. Barbara Ulmer Wm.

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. XVith eleven wins to their credit the Maroon and XVhite gridders lost a hard-fought battle to Lower Merion who tallied twice to salt away the subur- ban title. Rebounding quickly from defeat, Rollie NVest and Company, which included three-year varsity men "Sugar" Dennis and "Duke" Young, trounced the Royals. 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.

Duke Young and Xilayne Smith maintained 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. R. It' 5551? Ifmt' Una: C. Nlarx. ft. Gunn. K, Rappaport, lfoley.

Uratjla Stall llatitlrtls Traditional Traits 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. httsts Jack Stopkoski, David Fay, and Norma Kickers sketch interesting cartoons for senior pt cs. 1 11111111 111111111 1s1110 s11111s 01011 110 Pl d b I '111-.1 - '11 .1 .

'R . 1 WE I 'll 1 N xx yi ' ' L TWU Laps tu GU 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- man. Contributing their know-how to Forum activities were Edward Farkas, X'Valter Tappert, Nick Mul- lins, and Theodore Rights. Scholastically those who frequently rated a Spot on the honor roll were Constance Cunningham, Carol Vsfard, Barbara Gattiker, Theodore Rights, 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- cessful production. 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.
