The massive brick building standing above Highland Avenue awed most who saw it for the first time. At first inspection it appeared a great accu- mulation of lines and angles traced by brick, but a closer look revealed that it was much more than this. With the arrival of the student body it became a vibrant entity with an extensive tradition and a promising future. ln this building appeared the ulti- mate in educational facilities. Abing- Kfw ..

Yet, we were unable to accept the hy- pothesis which presupposes that a building is the main factor in the process of learning. We, the Senior Class of 1957, are both the begin- ning and the end of an educational era in Abington. We are the first to be graduated from Abingtonis new home and the last to have spent a major part of our high school life in the tradition haunted halls of old Abington. It has been our task to lead the adaption of steel and brick into a beloved alma mater. This task has been both pleasurable and chal- lenging. At the opening of the New Abington High School our faculty had increased by one-half while the student body had increased by one- third. New students came to join our ranks from places so close as Philadelphia and so far as Berlin, Germany, in the person of Bernhard Mahner, our exchange student. I --. While the builders were still busy at work, putting on the finishing touches, the members of the Student Service Corps began acquainting themselves with the intricacies of the great building in preparation to serve as guides during the unforget- table Dedication Services. These col- orful services were highlighted by , three days of justifiable pride as Abingtonians proudly presented Y their school to an estimated fifteen thousand visitors. Ours was a priv- ilege, indeed, to conclude the dedi- cation series with an address by Dr. Harold C. Hunt, Undersecretary of the United States Department of 1 Health, Education, and Welfare. ,um ' V int., g. 'H " T- ., -.if .Q - X me -W", ' - ts- .. ' iv-5 K " A revival of enthusiasm in their educational program was the experience of most students as the new building opened. Years of planning on the part of the Authority and School Board were not in vain. This favorable reaction justified the community's faith in the proposition that Abington students given adequate facilities and appropriate instruction can realize achievement second to none. Only the background of traditional activities had changed. The teams went forth from our new home even more anxious than before to bring back trophies for the expansive new display cases. Built-in bulletin boards waited to proclaim the figures of winning scores. Abingtonians were soon directing their line of attack toward the challenging goals of the New Abington's premier season. From the chemistry lab to the boards of the auditorium stage, we were the first to echo footsteps here. Our teams did not always win, to be sure, but they had a setting worthy of their endeavor. Senior Play, dances, Gala Night, sports and publications were set in a background of modern elegance. lust two examples of our accomplishments were our swimming team splashing on to an undefeated season in their refulgent new natatorium and our publication staffs returning victorious from the Pennsylvania Scholastic Press Association Convention held at Haverford and the Columbia Scholastic Press Association Convention in New York. Under glass and steel converging, we have set the pace for a new era. Look here, you generations to fol- low, and improve, but donit detract. Tread these tiles and boards and asphalt walks for decades to come, but tread lightly-for into these have gone sincere endeavor to make this structure a school. Humbly cognizant of the high privilege which was ours - we the Class of 1957 - depart but will always be associated in a unique way - with an exemplary educational organiza- tion housed in a structure planned to set the pace of learning for many years to come. 4 is 1 11 N535 tl. cn A f it gghef Dorothy Cathell To Miss Dorothy Cathell, who is retiring at the end of this academic year, the Abington Oracle Staff respectfully dedicates this yearbook. It is particularly appro- priate that a publication should have the privilege to so honor a teacher who has done so much for school publications. The sponsor of Abingtonian, Oracle and Yearbook in her varied career at Abington, Miss Cathell will also be long remembered for her Senior Honors English classes. Throughout the years she has stinted in neither time nor effort to main- tain Abington's traditionally high standards in literature and composition. From Columbia and Pennsylvania School Press Conventions, Miss Cathell has led a host of delegates back to Abington with awards in every phase of journalism. To this devoted teacher, Abingtonians vote their everlasting thanks for teach- ing, counseling, friendship and inspiration. We are grateful that she was with us to open the new Abington High School and in a sense plant here the seeds of tradition which she has carefully engendered through the years. The Yearbook Staff along with the entire Abington family wish Miss Cathell a happy and pros- perous future in whatever she may do. 5 .1 5 1 1 ' ' fx.

Our adminis- tration has done a masterful job of giving the new Abington Senior High School a firm foundation. With plans in formulation long before our new home was completed, our transition from Huntingdon Road to Highland Avenue was not without incident but always well organized. It is no less a task to transplant a student body with its traditions and customs than it would be to move the building itself. A major chord of the educational circle brought from the old to the new Abington High is our extra curricular program of formals, established activities, publications, student government, service clubs, vocational and professional interest groups, scholarship and sports honor groups, and musical organizations- all major postulates to our high school life. After the turmoil of moving, these traditions emerged stronger than ever as a living proof of the success of Abington's formula of education. 7 Dr, W. Eugene Stull, High School Principal Dear Students: It is with a great amount of pride that I write this brief message to the class of 1957- the first class to be graduated from the new Abington Senior High School. You are to be congratulated for setting a fine example for the many classes to follow, In a sense you are pioneers. You have filled the role admirably and have met successfully the many challenges coming to any pioneering group. My heart- felt thanks are extended to every member of the class for your co-operation. After graduation some of you will go to college, others will go to work, some will marry, while still others will enter the armed services. No matter in which of these groups you find yourselves, please be assured of my sincerest wishes for your success and happiness.

Mattson. ln November of l952, the Board of School Directors ol Abington Township and the super- intendent, Dr. O. H. English, authorized a school building report and selected an educational con- sultant to consider the problem of Abington's aging senior high school. Less than four years later a great new building had become a reality- housing some l352 students in surroundings second to none in this part ol the country. School Board, School Authority, superintendent, architect, administration, faculty, and an enthusiastic com- munity had spent eountless hours planning the minutiae of detail that went into so great an undertaking. The result was worth the effort in providing the citizens ol Abington Township with a building admired for its beauty as well as respected for its utility. Abington Township which has accomplished in fact what many townships still have on the draw- ing boards- is a township of the first class with an estimated population ol 48,000 lt is located within six miles ol the city ol Philadelphia and is growing at the rate of four to Five thousand a year. The School District, which is fiscally inde- pendent ol the township government, includes ten elementary schools, three junior highs, one senior high. and employs a stall' ol 585 employees. The total pupil enrollment lor the township is 1690. Board of School Directors: Back Row: Charles W. Smith, William R. Andrews, C. Edward Shmidheiser, Carl D. lledner, Front Row: Hon. Evelyn G.

Under the capable direction of Mr. Fcgley, Miss Haldeman and Miss Brchm did everything in their power to make the educational future of our seniors more certain. They also guided those who were going into business. During the midterm rush of college ap- plications and other tasks which that pe- riod brings, the guidance counselors did their utmost to give everyone equal atten- tion. An efficient guidance department plays a major part in securing places for gradu- ates in college or positions in the world of commerce. Our guidance counselors de- serve the present respect and future thanks of all Abington seniors. The efficiency of the nursing facilities at Abington was en- hanced by the expansion of the Health Suite. The health services have increased commensurately with the size of the new plant. A secretary, Miss Higgins, is now an active member of the staffg and the number of rooms has in- creased from three to eight. The Health Suite, run by Mrs. Estrin, has been successful in giv- ing free physical and dental exam- inations, and insuring a healthy school to all who attend. Whether it be a hangnail, a sprained ankle, or a case of ap- pendicitis, our nursing staff is alway prepared to help the stu- dent's body. 0 Respect for tnlwovej 'l'he oilieers ol the Student Council: Recording Secretary. ll.

The school's social lile was centered about our Student Council which represented the students ol Abington in outside affairs as well as affairs and events within the school. As the first student council in the new school's history, this student council had the responsibility ol handling and solving many of the problems and events tangent to opening a new building. Under the guidance ol Miss Clark and the leadership ol Sarah Murray. president: Lloyd Bobb, vice president: Barbara Po- lansky. recording secretary: Indy Goss, corresponding secretary: Fred Iohnston, treasurerg and Iohn Clement, sergeant-at arms, this year's Student Council did a superb job, at the same time emulating the standards ol past councils. No one will forget Student Council Open Houses, to mention one ol their achievements. These gave students a chance to socialize in a manner not possible in the classroom or busy school activities! IAC Dance, Spirit Committee, Dog House. Snack Barg School Store are just some of their numerous projects. Our Student Council is certainly worthy ol merit and it is hoped that luture Councils will maintain the tradition and ideals of good student government. tabovej The Executive Committee of the Student Council left to right, Back Row: V.

Student Service Corps and Before our new building opened the Student Service Corps under the sponsorship of Miss Helen Clark and lVlr. Vernard Fegley had spent many hours lamiliarizing themselves with our new plant. Their tireless service during Dedication Services will be remembered by many of the 15,000 visitors who had guided tours. But beyond that, visitors throughout the year were pleasantly and cour- teously shown the building by representatives of the Student Service Corps. No Radio City Guides ever did a more faithful job. .

At their weekly meeting the members of the Bible Club, under the supervision of Miss Dorothy Lemmert, Mr. Raymond Coleman and Mr. lrvin Pinto, review the Scriptures. As a side light to this all important activity the club arranges lor speakers, movies. and panel discus- sions built around the Bible to stimulate more active interest in religion at the high school. ln addition, prayer meetings are held three times a Week in the ofhce of lVlr. Coleman. a co-sponsor of the organization. A drive lor llungarian relief, a Bible for the auditorium lecturn. and a culrninat- ing banquet were the club's activities ol this year. Members ol the Bible Club reached all students ol the school through their well-selected Scripture selections read on the public address system prior to the Christmas and Faster holidays and by their special presentation of a Christmas play.

The seniors are perhaps the most important group of students in the school, for they are the "trailblazers" who set the standards which all lower classmen try to follow. The seniors are the base of our student triangleg a triangle without a base is not stable. It has been a long time since their parents took their hands and led them to school for the first time. Slowly but surely our seniors have climbed the educational ladder picking up knowledge and develop- ing skills to the limit of their ability. They haven't reached the pinnacle yet, for most of them will go on to further educationg some will serve in the armed services while others will be in business - each doing his share to make America strong. Whatever his future plan of action may be, each senior by graduation has attained a firm foundation which will help make the road ahead a smoother one. To every senior Abington extends its best wishes as he climbs from the plane of public education to the next higher plane in his structure of experience. 23 PAUL BERRICK ABRAMSON College Preparatory 436 Roslyn Avenue, Glenside "Abe", Varsity Swimming 1, 2, 3, Varsity "A" Club 1, 2, 3, Key Club 3, Dramatics Club 2, Sophomore Chorus, junior Chorus.

It is in subject matter courses that we learn those facts which prepare each student for industry, a profes- sion, or the home. But the academic program of Abington Senior High School is complemented by a wealth of student functions that help further their understanding of their fellow men. Business, College Preparatory, General, and Vocational Courses each foster activities which extend into the "extra-class" life of the school. Whether in advisory section, an organized club, or doing some work for another activity which his department is best able to perform, each student has an opportunity as vast as our building is large to work and learn with others in an organization sufficiently inclusive to prepare him for his destiny, whatever it may be. - 55 Q 2 C7 The sponsors ol' the Iunior Class are Mr. Woodruff, Miss Konkle. Miss I. Davis, Mr. Roberts, and Mr. Coleman. Honors and Politicians The Honor Society entered its third academic year at Abington High School in '56-'57. Alhliated with the National Honor Societies throughout the country, our Abington chapter includes those at the top level of their class academically who are also active extra-curricularly and as good school citizens. A small but select group. the Honor Society continues traditional activities of spring initiation for new members and tutoring service for those students who need extra assistance. The ini- tiation ceremony, at an all school assembly, is unique in that the new members do not know who they will be until their names are called before the school and they rise to take their place among the ranks of the nation's Honor Societies, The lighting ol candles, rep- resenting the character elements of a good student, is the focal point of the initiation service. Following this The Iunior Class oilicers who are responsible for this year's successful Iunior Prom, which had as its theme "Man- hattan" are Steve Telkins, President, Barbara Franck, Sec- retaryg Stan Shorb, Vice-Presidentg Dean Dobbins, Treas- urer.

Science The science wing of our new high school with its series of preparation rooms, work rooms, and well- equipped laboratories is a sight that inspires even the layman to improve his scientific knowledge. Never before in Abington's history have there been so many facilities offered to our science, chemistry, and physics students. Students may learn anything from physics problems to dissecting a frog in our science departments here at Abington. Sciences are a necessity for life as well as an entrance qualification to any good college or university. Amid an environment of aquaria and bell jars, sliding chalkboards, and green tinted work tables, Abington students have every chance to develop their scientific inclinations. -.fs gl A ltr Rx " I", 1 1 E l l t I A 1 sf 'rf' R, Seienee Department: George Erb, Mary Krebs, M.

An out- standing feature of this department is that the major shops are self-contained units having their own lavatory, lockers, and washing facilities. Print shop, machine shop, wood shop, electric shop, and me- chanical drawing rooms make up the vo- cational department at the new building. bile shop is still at the Huntingdon Road School, but will eventually be at the new building, too. Abington is proud in its tradition ol vocational education. It is possible for Abington boys, who are so inclined, to get vocational training that will prepare them to embark on a trade upon graduation. The essentials of a good education are not left out, however, in the important fields of academic subjects. Mr. Grun gives demonstration in wood shop for Rich Learn, Walter Dickerson, Fred Bauerle, Eddie Wolf, and Ronald Fortune. 70 Prom All Angles 'Bw N 9 ' A il Radio appears to be the main lines of interest Those seniors who qualify alternate between school and an industry associated with their course on successive weeks.

With such new facilities this year as individual practice rooms, the band has a better chance than ever to keep up its high previous standard of accomplishment and service. The courses oll'cred this year in instrumental music include band as a major and instrumental music as a minor, with the extra- curricular organizations of orchestra, dance band, and string or- chestra. Some ol the presentations of 1956-57 were the concert band at the Spring Festival, Kiwanis Kapers, and the Dance Band at Gala Night. It is interesting to note that Mr. Schneller, Mr. Wright, Mr. Gable, Mr. Brodhagg, Mr. Miller, and Mr. Awad are members of the Dance Band. Arthur Crouthamel, I. Mcrvin Godshall, and Verus Weaver of the Music Department gather around the grand piano. The Sophomore Girls' Quartet: Carol Smith, Iean Toothill, Cindy Bayer, and Linda Breeze. 1 iw' ,X I v 4 N Another organization worthy of mention is our string orchestra capably lead by Miss Dorothy Gardner, an Abington alumna. A number of their scores were heard at the Senior Play. Under the direction of Mr. Verus Weaver, head of the band, orchestra, and dance band, and his never-ending enthusiasm toward instrumental music, the department is sure to progress in enjoyment, performance. and self-satisfaction of a iob well done. Our sophomores showed vocal promise this year in the person of a girls' quartet and a boys' quartet. These capable groups con- tributed their talent to school assemblies and Gala Night in numbers well calculated to please both traditional and modern tastes. It is, indeed, an encouraging sign for Mr. Godshall and admirers of vocal music to have enterprising sophomores contribute their talents early in their school career. fx Mr. Ulsun gin-s imliv' 1 ' I " .

We can always be proud of our athletes and teams because they stand for the ideals of sportsmanship and fair play. With the long line of sports we have at our disposal, almost everyone can compete on at least one athletic team. This com- pletes the circle of high school life, balancing mental activities with physical endeavor for every student so inclined. The community shared with us our fine new facilities. Every day and evening when school was not in session, township citizens and guests could be seen coming to our natatorium and gym. The parking lot was rarely deserted while Abingtonians utilized to the fullest extent our "comprehensive school and community service center." Many great athletes of yesterday and today believe that sports are a great converter of men from boys, and women from girls. With our excellent facilities, Abington is doing its share making these conversions. 79 Ghost Gridclers Give Cheltenham 35W t4 ., L -33. .'

Head mentor Carroll was ably backed by his assistants, Schneller, Pawl- ing, and Smith, who coached the team into a brilliant start by winning the first three out of four games. However, plagued by injuries in the latter part of the season, the Ghosts maintained their lighting spirit and determination. With the big line strengthened by Iadick and Holmes, quarterback Steve Rhoads and his fellow ball carriers were able to get loose on long runs which helped the Abington cause.

P lymouth- At the beginning of the Cross Country season in Sep- tember it appeared as if Abington would be represented by a strong running team. The five top men on the team were running close together or more or less in a group which in Cross Country is one of the first things the coach looks for to determine the team's strength. Besides this, there were additional boys running at the heels of these boys. But as the season began and Abington lost three out of its first five meets some of the team's enthusiasm died out. Beginning its sixth meet with a 1-4 record the team overwhelmed the Cheltenham Panthers and its next five rival teams also to leave its record standing at 7-4. This proved to be the main drive of the team and it'once more rearranged the tcam's outlook toward Dist. I Meet McDowell in Action! Doyle Sets Blistering Pace! Whitemarsh 43 - 3rd the rest of the season. Completing their list of duel meets C14 in numberj by overpowering Plymouth-Whitemarsh the team pre- pared for the District Meet. This meet is held at Cobbs Creek Golf Course where the boys run a distance of over 215 miles. It is the big meet of the season with 22 teams represented. Here Abington placed third of the 22, outrunning three teams that had previously defeated Abington. The I.V. also placed third. Among the duel meets the one that stands out most is the one with Springfield. Running on the Spring- field course, Abington came out on top thus ending a 20 meet winning streak that Springfield proudly boasted of. Cross Country Team: Qleft to rightj Back Row. Mr. Naumann, R.

Abington's soccer team had one ol the finest records in recent years. Due to lack ol team experience the booters had only a mediocre start. But any shortcomings in experi- ence were soon offset hy the marvelous spirit which prevailed among Coach Cantt's team. The Ghosts were in contention lor the Suburban Championship until the last games of the season. Adding an international flavor to the team was the presence ol Berhard lVlahner, our exchange student from the Kant Ciynniasiunl in Berlin.

They finished their season with a 16 win and no loss record clinching the Suburban Swim Championship, and then went on to beat Coatsville in the District One swim championships to win the Dis- trict One title. A The toughest meets were the two Cheltenham Meets which the paddlers won because of their depth. In these meets the boys were behind going into the relays but pulled out to win both relays and clinch the meets. Pawling's Paddlers boasted of the sprint power in free-style of Bob Tomlinson and Carl Meitzner while Iohn Clement paced a very fast 200. Breaststrokers Tompkins and Abramson bettered last year's winning time in state championships but were only 2nd and 3rd in the district.

Abington Senior High School put forth in 1957 one of its best golf teams in recent years. The capable direc- tions of Mr. Brunner supported by the ability, experi- ence, and mental attitudes of the boys, formed the mould of a championship squad. lVlost important of all, however, to the success of the golf team was the access of the challenging Huntingdon Valley Country Club Course, a privilege offered to few high school teams. Mr. Brunner, foreseeing a good season, made a special effort to schedule skilled opponents. Such teams as Penn Charter, Haverford School, Norristown, Lower Merion, Central, and Cheltenham provided the keen competition which the Ghost golfers deserved.

Track and Pic-:ld Events "No one will find Abington a push-over this year", track coach, William Naumann, confidently pointed out before the harriers' 13 scheduled tilts. A quick glance at the results of the team's first meet of the spring season would indicate that his statement will be fully justified. The Ghosts scooted the cinders for a 60-53 victory over North Penn, perennial Bux-Mont League Champions. With Fred McDowell running the half mile and Carl Lewis turning the quarter, Mr. Naumann should have few worries. Speedy Dick Doyle should take many firsts in the mile event while his bud- dies, Ieff Castle and George Gunn are hopping the hurdles. Heavy- weights Dick Iadick and Bruce Ulrich can put the shot put fifty feet and should be great assets. Mr. Carroll and Mr. Capaldi are assisting Mr. Naumann this year in javolin, discus throw and shot put events. Carl Lewis rounds curve on a fast quar- ter mile. . Bruce Ulrich hurls shotput. 'SYS X 99 Ready for another tough schedule under the direction of Anton Stanis, the boys' tennis team is pinning its hopes on a nucleus of returning senior lettermen and a host of promising underclassmen. Back from last year's squad, which placed third in the league, are Steve Rhoads, first singles, Iohn Clement, second singles, Charles Ruzieka, third singles, and Guy Fincke, fourth singles. These boys displayed their feats of net Wizardry in two preliminary matches early in the spring. In the first of these, the Lincoln skirmish, Steve Rhoads achieved an impressive victory over Ioe Celis, individual runner-up in last year's Philadelphia Public School tournament C6-8, 7-5, and 6-21. Other wins were scored by Iohn Clement C7-5, 7-555 Charles Ruzieka C6-2, 6-45, and a freshman, Iohn Benus C6-0, 6-23. The doubles team of Scott Downing and Bob Fer- nandez had little trouble downing the Railsplitters 6-2. 6-4, rounding out a good-looking 5-0 shutout. Mike Drought, who journeyed to the State Doubles Cham- pionship with Steve Rhoads last year was unfortunately ineligible this season. Drought had an extremely un- orthodox but effective style. Another memorable spring sporting event was in order when North Penn played host to the galloping netmen of Abington. With the combined talents of Fineke, Downing. Fernandez, Hodgson, Doering, Benus and Van Horn, the home team was unable to capture a single. With such promising junior players as Bill Halbert, Stan Shorb, and Russ Harwood the netmen look forward to a successful 56-57 season with an even better year to follow.

State College Early Triumph The girls' tennis team coached by Miss Gertrude Herzog had high hopes for a winning '57 season. Although they were hampered at the beginning of the season by bad weather, the netmaids man- aged to pull through for an effective team and season. Led by returning varsity letterwinners Connie Cunningham, Anne Helfrich, Carolyn Seeburger, Iill Childe, and Ioan Benus, the team diligently and spiritedly met their opponents.

These girls worked hard for six weeks to learn the game and its strategy before their first game. When they entered their first game against George School, they knew little as compared to the long years of experience that their opponents had accumulated, but their enthu- siasm and sportsmanship brought them out on top morally in spite of their loss. This spirit never faltered whether the competition was rough or as inexperienced as themselves. Debby Nickles, junior, did a good job as center of this year's team and is expected to carry on as a probable star of next year's varsity team. The seniors responsible for the acceptable record of our first LaCrosse team are: Barbara Rickner, Ellen Beebee, Lynn Yonker, Mary Iane Trout, Ioyce Kraekle, and Beth Hitchner. Carol Iohnson, our star sophomore, seems to be as versitile in LaCrosse as she is in basketball and hockey. Pam Patton, a sophomore attack wing, also did her share in putting the ball into the goal. The 1956-57 LaCrosse team has set a tradition that we hope will be upheld by future teams. LaCrosse is a difficult game, but we hope through years of practice that our team will set records as all our other girls' sports teams and give us another sports team to be truly proud of.

Away Ianice Young prepares to swing while Ioan Warburton "catches upf' i'Sluggersn Swing Ahead Led by three varsity letterwinnersg slugger, Iudy Gimpel, secondbase woman, Janice Young, and fielder, Elain Eckel, the girls' softball team remained determined for a successful season although the squad was very "green". Aided by returnees Kay Kauffman, our varsity pitcher, Barbara Thompson, Ioan Travilla, Carolyn Fox, and Harriet Mayer the team looked toward a favorable season after dropping their first game 14-0 to Lansdale. Although it was difficult to tell, at the beginning of the season, who the stars of the '56-'57 would be, Miss Black made an attempt to test everyone in this game. She watched intentively and chose her first team discriminating between what she thought would be two successful first teams. Friends Select showed promise as a victorious team but the Abingtonians went into the game with determination. Their endeavor was not without result. Rounding out the girls' schedule were Hatboro, Girls High, Upper Moreland, and Cheltenham. I FT Girls' Softball Team: Back Row: Cleft to rightj Coach Miss Black, L. Wiley, R. Thompkins, M.

Ardent student participation supplemented by faculty and administration assistance, have resulted in memorable occasions during the year at Abington. The cheerleaders, colorguard, baton twirlers, and the band added the dash of color necessary to make our athletic events spirited and unforgettable. Senior play and Gala Night resulted in fun and frolic for the entire school family. Who can forget the tumultuous pep rallies during the football season, and the numerous dances throughout the year? These are, indeed, events which will often be reminisced by many in the years 'to come. These spectacular events are certainly a fit conclusion to our theorem for a well balanced school season. For without dances, plays, and talent shows -our clubs, academic activities, and athletics on the school calendar would be far from complete. We sincerely hope the sophomores, juniors, and future students of Abington will strive to keep up the tradition and continue to present these spectacular events in the countless years to come. 105 2 .al 'sal s 5 it t i if 'I- ' ' , f 'et A A - 1, A ,, J H V' - 2 .

It'l 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 Murphy's one learns retailing from the bottom up! I started out as an extra salesgirl, working every day after school. When I was graduated, I was fortunate to be placed in charge of a counter. I never knew how really interesting this work could be . . . lt'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 Murphy's have an equal chance to better ourselves. From what I can see Murphy's is tops in training . . . and there isn't l. store in town to beat Murphy's on Employee benentsl If you're ambitious to make a "go" of retailing, join the "Gang" at Murphys soon as you can.
