The CANARY and BLUE
HISTGRY GF A. H. S.
Few memories go back to the tirst commencement of the Allentown High School.
Fewer still go back to that morning in 1858 when for the iirst time a school was assem-
bled which should become known as the Allentown High School.
The school was situated on Penn Street, near the present Administration building.
With fourteen pupils, equally divided as to sex, the school opened under the master, R.
W. McAlpine. Not being in accord with higher powers his administration was soon
ended. His successor was a man by the name of Armagnac. Next came Mr. john
Sykes, who remained till the end of the school term of 1862. Mr. Tobias Kessler suc-
ceeded him and taught up to 1865, when Dr. R. K. Buehrle, now of Lancaster, took his
place and taught until be became, in 1867, the first superintendent of the schools of
Allentown. Shortly afterward the Boys' High School was moved to an upper floor of the
building occupied by Leh's shoe store. From here it went to the Academy at Eighth and
Walnut Streets. Finally, when the Herbst Building was finished, the school was taught
Meanwhile the Girls' High School, which had been formed in 1859 to satisfy public
opinion, was moved from the Horne Building to the Presbyterian Sunday School room
where it remained till late in the year of 1869 when it too settled in the Herbst Building.
This was shortly after the first commencement held in May, 1869. Three were in
the class graduated.
Harry Lawrence, the quiet member, became a resident of the far West, a short time
ago, during commencement week his remains were brought to his native heath and laid
away with his own home folk.
Entering the printing establishment of the Lehigh Register, Frank Sherer learned
his trade with that firm. About the year 1870 The Chronicle came into existence. At
tirst this paper was sold on the street. After a sufficient number of subscribers were se-
cured he became its first carrier, but only for a short time, when another printers' devil
took his place. The young man rose step by step from one position of trust and honor,
until finally he occupied the editor's chair, which post he filled at the time of his death.
Penrose W eida was a jeweler by trade. For many years he carried on business in
the place now occupied by Kahen's Ladies' Apparel, of course not in the imposing struc-
ture of the present day. When quite a young man he became an invalid. Some of the
older alumni may well remember the brave fight he made against the inroads of disease.
The commencement was held in the Presbyterian Church on North Fifth Street.
The exercises of the evening were opened by the school reciting a Psalm and prayer by
the Rev. Dr. Wood, pastor of the church. These were the days of simplicity-there were

no printed programmes. Dr. R. K. Buehrle, superintendent and head of the High
School. announced the speakers and their subjects as their turn came.
Three graduates could not fill the whole programme, therefore members of the lower
classes were selected both for essays and recitations. To vary the exercises an occasional
song was rendered by the school. Music not being taught in the Public School, since
there was at this time not a school building which owned a musical instrument, it was
exceedingly difficult to present singing suitable for such occasions, therefore this feature
was soon eliminated, and the famous Allentown Band discoursed sweet music to the de-
light of subsequent audiences.
At this particular Commencement no presents were given in public-that was a
practice which came in at a later day. There was no display of any kind, yet parents
and friends went away well pleased with the First Commencement of the Allentown
High School. '
Since many could not gain admittance, the next year the Board of Control engaged
the Court House, which was used for some years. The Class of 1875 was the last to hold
its closing exercises in the Hall of Justice.
By turns Hagenbuch's Opera House, the Music Hall and the Lyric Theatre were
The next move of the High School is made known thru the permit of the School
Board given to the graduating class of 1880 to use two rooms of the first floor of the
Fourth Ward tWolfeJ building, "the same to be under the supervision of the janitor."
In this building three rooms were occupied, a boys' room, girls' room and a recitation
room presided over by Mr. Desh, Miss Allison and Miss Barnes. In 1881 F. D. Raub,
later Superintendent of Schools, became principal while Miss A. S. Grammes became
head of the girls' department with Miss Rosa M. Kessler as assistant. In the same year
the first Muhlenberg Scholarship was awarded.
From this time on till 1894 the High School continued to expand in this building.
In that year the fthenj New High School Building was completed and possession taken
of il. Since then many classes have passed thru its halls and many events have taken
place. Among them we must remember that in 1903 the Canary and Blue was started
with Mr. Warren F ritsch as its first editor.
In 1913 the school again expanded and students were sent to the Wolfe Building.
The next year five rooms of the Herbst building were commandeered for the incoming
Freshman Class of 1918. Two years later, in September, 1917, possession was taken of
'the building now occupied. Need we say more concerning it? Certainly we have
progressed. This book is a monument to our energy and spirit. In a new building,
with a new and finer spirit the Allentown High School has come into its own.

WILLIAM HEBERLING President

DOROTHY HAAS Secretary
RUssEL STINE Historian
HER INIAN WEBER Prophet
BLANCI-IE HILL Prophetess
Alas, the four years, stay within your welcome doors has drawn to a close. It is
with sorrowful eyes that I look upon you now and realize the great truth that I will soon
be an alumnus, and no more a merry student, calling you my home. The World has
called me, and though my heart is ever with you, our fellowship is broken. I hope to
see you often but it will be only a visit, not a home-coming. Others have preceded me and
many will follow who shall feel the same strong desire for a return of your friendship
and companionship. Do not think I am not proud of being an alumnus of A. H. S., but
much rather would I sit within your happy walls and again pass thru those pleasant
days of the four years past.
Think not that I am addressing the cold stone walls of the beautiful building, but
think with me of that newly awakened spirit which I am addressing. This spirit long
dormant has always been alive, and I can See that it is early born into the lives of the
students, but never develops until Cas it has for mej the time for parting comes. It is
School Spiritt spirit for work, spirit for friendship, spirit for pleasure, and spirit of
love of one's school in all activities. This is what I shall lose, for in its place will come
the Spirit of the World, which is work, play, and work.
But not all bonds between Old High and myself will be broken, for where but in
High School can I form such warm and true companionships and sincere friendships
which shall be mine for eternity? I have gained many, and all bright, which shall never
die, always to hold me to the thought that their origin was in A. H. S. For this I am
thankful, because man's life is never without shadowsg and nothing but good old friend-
ships, the true companionship of boyhood days, can dispel those shadows and make life
easier. No stronger tie can there be to always keep bright the flame of love for my
And now, though it has been my own feeling and my own farewell I have but ex-
pressed the sentiment of the Class of 1918. I feel safe to say that every one is endowed
with this spirit, and likewise feels the sorrow of his or her parting.
Let me say in closing, that I hope the Class of 1918 will not be looked up to as a
standard of efficiency, but looked back upon as a starting point, marking the point of a
revival, where the steady climb of higher efficiency shall have begun. May the next fifty
years be one steady climb, until the centennial celebration shall again assemble us into
-one big body to pay due tribute to Our Alma Mater.

The CANARY and BLUE
History of the Class of 1918
The immortal Class of 1918 now leaps into the Canary and Blue arena and makes
its last bow to the Allentown High School. For four years A. H. S. has been blessed with
our presence-for four years her students have had ample opportunity to observe us.
Nor has our sweetness been "wasted on the desert air," and it is indeed sad that we
must now part.
But this is somewhat ahead of the game. I must first lead you, gentle reader, back
to those early days when the curtain of history iirst rises. The scene is so ancient that
most of us have, by now, forgotten that it ever existed. We were Freshmen! With
Robert Sewell as our president our army made its stand against the three upper classes.
Realizing the superiority of these other nations, for each class is a nation in the school
world, we decided that the only way we could become a great people was to first become
civilized. In accordance therewith we spent most of this Freshman year in acquiring
knowledge. As the year drew to a close we endeavored to play baseball with those
siiperhuman Sophomores but were defeated, so we retired to our scholastic trenches and
continued to study. s
However, as time rolled on the verdancy of the Freshman year wore away and at
length we exultantly called ourselves Sophomores. Beneath our Brown and White
banner we continued to battle for our rights against the upper classes. We l1ad men on
the 'Varsity football, baseball and relay teams and came in second in the Marathon. In
this way we attracted attention in athletics. Internally we were strengthening ourselves
with Lathrop Ramsay as our president. So far we used most of our time for conscienti-
ous study and with good results.
It is a pleasant thing to fall asleep in a barn and wake up in a palace and discover
that that palace is yours. Such was the experience of 1918 when they became juniors.
The scene of our endeavors now shifted to the New Building, where upon joining the
ranks of the upper classmen we proceeded to make our influence felt. Harmony dwelt
within our ranks, and with Mr. Mack as our president we strengthened our position in-
temally. We made our social debut, in the form of a dance and a card party ,which was
in every respect a success. At the close of the year a delightful picnic was held. Again
we had members on the 'Varsity football, basketball, relay, and baseball teams. Again
we finished' second in the Marathon. U tinam ne vera scriberem, but I fear that stdy was
a little neglected this year, though it still was our chief object of being present.

for they are beyond criticism. Indeed it was four years search after truth and we have
partly found it inasmuch as we now realize that we still have a great deal to learn. In
athletics, what had been such an humble beginning, proved to be an enviable success.
We had members on the 'Varsity football, basketball, baseball, track and relay teams,
and won the Marathon and Inter-class meets.
But it is in other lines we have made our real mark. The above mentioned are
commonplace, the following are exceptional. School life in the new building is a very
different existence from that of the old, and it is the sincere claim of 1918 that she has
started life in the new building. The Canary and Blue, which had not been published
since 1916 was revived by 1918, and has been made a greater success than in any previ-
ous year. The Literary Society was reorganized and maintained in spite of obstacles.
The Booster Club was instituted for the purpose of creating a heretofore lacking spirit
and has already accomplished much in that direction. It was largely through the efforts
of 1918 that the First Annual Athletic Dance, such a pronounced success, became a fact.
It is always the beginnings which are most difficult. We have started and given a firm
footing to these many activities and hope that those who follow will strengthen and

but by employing the ambition and perseverance we have hitherto shown it can safely be
said that the class shall go on in college, or in the world, and be guided by the noble tra-

a business of knowing all of the powdered sex in High School. Our
sincere hope is that he has reformed since many hearts are sad and

With the opening of the junior year, the class of 1919 came forward to witness the
most successful period of its history. Many plans had been laid for the entertainment
of the class, but for various reasons, especially "on account of the war," most of them
had to be sacrificed. However, war conditions did not prevent us from having a suc-
cessful masquerade dance on the gym floor. This success gave the spirit of the class a
firm foundation and greatly stimulated the efforts to make the annual junior Dance the
most successful in the history of the school.
On Thursday, November twenty-second, the class held its junior Dance in Mealey's
Auditorium. Despite unfavorable weather conditions, it proved a big social success and
financially it exceeded any Junior Dance ever held by the Allentown High School. This
was the main event of the year and it secured for the class a reputation which it has lived
up to and will live up to during the coming Senior year.
What has the junior Class done for the school? When the football team was or-
ganized there were six juniors lined up in the squad. In the track team, four of our
men have gained something for the school. In the debating team three men qualified,
while the class has selected capable men to continue the steady progress of the Canary
and Blue next year. This shows that the Class of 1919 is on the map and is very promis-
ing for the Senior year.
Although the juniors have played an active part in all these school activities, they
have not neglected their duty to their country. At present Bernard McDermott is serving
in France, while Douglas Krick is a member of the Ambulance Corps. In the Red Cross
drive and Liberty Bond campaign, the Junior rooms, especially numbers 205 and 219,
always appeared at the head.
As far as the class is concerned, it undoubtedly progressed in its junior year, but
the aim of every class should be to go out of Allentown High feeling satisfied that the
school is a little better than it was when you entered. The greatest opportunities for a
'class to do this appear in the Senior year and therefore the class hopes to make its goal

PROF. R. P. HOLBEN Faculty Treasurer
To tell the truth a class history is in nine cases out of ten mere bombast and bragga-
docia. But it happens that our class is one exception to the rule and no such delusive
boasting is necessary in this short recital of our startling career.
During our Freshman year our athletics were so successful that the upper classmen
were forced to blush when any of the invincible Freshies appeared. We defeated suc-
cessively the Sophs, Juniors, and Seniors. In our class were the champion pitcher of
the Lehigh Valley and the school's best pole vaulter. We played outside teams too and
gave them such a taste of our superior playing that many of them never again tried the
impossibility of beating us. I
But we did not display our genius in athletics aloneg as a result of our intellectual
ability sprang up one of the liveliest institutions of the school, the Adelphian Debating
Society. Our success gave rise to another society in the Sophomore Class but they were
soon doomed to see that we had the better organization. Our ability-was tested on the
bloodless field of debate. Our boys did nobly and far outshone the Sophs but realizing
that their opponents would get sore at being defeated and also that it is more seemly for
the higher class to win our boys generously handed over the palm to those would-be
Our brilliant Freshman year closed with a picnic at Sand Spring Park. Several
cars were chartered and almost the entire class participated in the joys of a day in the
country. The Freshman Orchestra furnished dance music. Thus ended our first year,
a year memorable in the annals of A. H. S. and all the classes stood by with bated breath
to witness what fresh outbursts of talent and originality the next year would reveal.
This year we furnished the 'Varsity basketball team with three men, the football
with two, the track team with three, and the baseball team with four men. We won the
F. D. Beary cup while two individual members of the class won second and third prizes.
No other class took as many as we did.
In the Y. M. C, A. Campaign it was our class that led again by collecting 251,494.40
We also donated a S150 Liberty Bond to the Canary and Blue Fund.
We had the honor of supplying four men on the A. H. S. 'Varsity Debating Team,
and in those renowned encounters with Bethlehem and Easton we showed of what stuff
we were made. Quite recently the ALABAMA boys of 1920, assisted by the 1920 jazz
Band, presented a most interesting minstrel show which moved the audience to prolonged
peals of laughter.
Volumes could be written on the achievements of the class of 1920 but now as we are
about to assume the responsibilities of upper classmen may our past example serve as a
guiding lamp to the succeeding classes who desire to climb to the dizzy pinnacle of fame.

The Freshman Class entered the High School in 1917. The building, because of
its size, caused the many different divisions of the Class to loose themselves. At the be-
ginning of our life as a Class the present juniors were very obliging and started the
Freshman on their way. Mr. Fegley served as treasurer until in the middle of the term,
when he enlisted in the U. S. A. A. S. Mr. W ierbach was then elected to serve in the
place of Mr. Fegley.
In seems that during the years of 1917-18 that the Freshman are doing well in
Athletics all around. As to the boys, basketball team, there is not much to say, but they
did well for only playing the game the first time. There are some promising players who
can easily, by good hard practise make a place for themselves in the basketball depart-
The girls' basketball team was also good in their form of play. They succeeded in
drubbing the Sophomores whenever they met them. The team also showed the Senior
and junior teams that although we were "Freshiesl' we could put up a stiff game.
A word for the football team will just let the upper classmen remember that we
severely trounced the Sophomores in a 7 to 3 game. This shows again that spunk and
class spirit are not lacking.
The next department of the sport line is the track team. Ralph Schatz '21 is run-
ning in fine shape and looks to be a very promising runner. He has made a place for
himself on the 'Varsity track team and the Class is duly proud of him. The Freshman
managed to get last place in the Inter-class Meet, but this does not discourage the team
because they know they did well when they think of the experienced men they ran
The last sport is baseball. The Freshman team shows its ability in good form.
Although the Sophomores defeated the team in the first inter-class game we are not
daunted. Paul Maury '21 represents the class on the 'Varsity and does very well. When
he finds the t'pill,' he usually hits it out in the "clover" somewhere.
From a glance at the different reports of the athletics you can see we are not slow
for a Freshman Class.
In May Mr. Bennett, the president, volunteered his services as a farmer and so he
left us that month. The vice-president, Miss Evelyn Muse, then took charge of the Class.
The biggest success of the Class was a Class Dance held in November. It was a
masquerade and dance combined. The "Freshies" came in rags and tatters, silks and
laces to join in and have one good night of fun, and fun they had and so afterward
somebody wrote a motto or yell for the class to let the upper classes know where the
fun Was bagged? "Bim, Bam, Bum,
If you want some fun,
Belong to Class of '21."
So as all novels, stories, or write-ups end this one ends with the Class living on as
happy, care-free and full of life as when we entered the Allentown High School.

No SCHOOL ANNUAL would be complete without an editorial, yet in it precedent
rules that we thank many people for the work we ourselves have done. Furthermore, we
are expected to apologize for our book. This year we determined to be different. There-
fore look elsewhere for the proof of our sincere appreciation and for our guarded
apologies But let us not forget to thank Mr. R. K. Buehrle, a former Superintendent
of Schools, who is now living in Lancaster, for his valuable aid in compiling the High
School history. He deserves special mention. Still, we feel that already enough has
been said of the past. As for the present, this book tells the tale in its entirety. There
then remains but the future to think of.
At the close of this half century we can look back with pride upon our accom-
plishments while we can also look forward with confidence to the coming fifty years.
Our immediate future seems perhaps uncertain with a new principal replacing Mr.
Hamm. Altho none of us welcome the change we must accept the issue gracefully for
the good of the High School. The best of feeling has prevailed in old A. H. S. during
this year and it must continue. Every year should bring added fame and love for our
Alma Mater. Already we rank among the foremost of High Schools in our building
and in all-around activities. The possibilities are all here-we need only to develop
them. Look even to this year in baseball. We had a "whopper" of a team. It is the
kind we want every year. Every activity needs the same impetus.
Thus we progress. Every year a little more activity, better athletics, a larger school
spirit. For these things we aim and when the Centennial year comes and the Class of
1918 comes back with the other Alumni to watch the accounting may the progress of
the second fifty years be as great as the first.
Finally, if you will practice a small part of what we have preached this year,
things will go famously. Let us remind you to attend the athletic games, to stop the
Freshmen from sliding in the halls, to request teachers to cease pushing in at the head
of the bread-line in the lunch room, and lastly remember, above all things else, to work
for that advertising permit. You know our method. Patronize our advertisers and tell
And now, with ourisignature, we go down with our class in history of Allentown

The need has long been felt in the Allentown High School for a greater school spirit
among the students, in all lines of activity, and for more eflicient and cooperative work.
As a result, the Booster Club was formed in December, 1917, and all who had the in-
terest of their alma mater at heart, and wished to better her were invited to become
About twenty-five live wire fellows from the four classes responded and already
much has been accomplished by that body to stimulate interest in school affairs. The
faculty recognizing the value of the Club gave their cooperation and came to us with
We have conducted during our short existence three very successful and novel cam-
paigns to raise money for the various departments of interest, such as the Debating
League, the track team and the baseball team. Besides this the Club endeavored to inter-
est the school in supporting all home games and succeeded beyond their hopes, especially
in basketball. To these may be added, in pride, the fact that the recent popular Athletic
Association Dance was fathered by the Club, whose members then were most active to
make it what history knows it to be.
At present the Club is assuming the responsibility of conducting a minstrel, the
proceeds of which are to go to the Athletic Association. But, better still, the Club ex-
pects to announce, before the term closes, something new for the Allentown High School,
which if supported, must become popular. A general organization of school activities is
being formed, which will issue tickets, selling at a reasonable price, which shall prac-
tically include all school activities as well as a subscription to the Canary and Blue.
The above may all sound pecuniary. But far from that is its purpose or its ultimate
outcome. The result of the Club this year and of the years to follow must necessarily
mean that a living, breathing spirit, such as A. H. S. has never witnessed before, will
hover about us and bring with it a benevolent attitude which shall so inspire the students
that they will support the activities voluntarily and all will then be members of the

A year ago last January, upon the suggestion of several classical students, a Classi-
cal Club was organized at the High School. At first its membership included only boys,
but now is open to all students pursuing the classical course-nine Seniors, twelve
juniors, twenty Sophomores, and thirty-live Freshmen. This year the Club boasted
of two members who, although science Seniors, elected first year Greek in addition
to their prescribed branches. Their intention is to continue this subject in college,
and we are sure it will be with credit. We are reminded here of the eminent scientist
and engineer, Dr. Hollis Godfrey, of Drexel Institute, who, at this year's meeting of
the Classical Association of the Middle Atlantic States proved to be one of the latest
supporters of the classics. The fact that such a man pleads for the classics shows
that there must be some goodly ministration that they perform in life.
The meetings of the Club are held after school on the tlrst Tuesday of each month,
in the music room. The programs, which are printed in Latin, are quite varied. Al-
though the plan of having outside speakers for the meetings has not been followed this
year, yet each time from eight to ten numbers were given by the members, including
readings, solos, songs in Latin by the Club, and the translation of two or three Latin
and Greek translations from prepared sight-translation sheets. The last feature is always
interesting, and provides a large part of the benefit to be derived from belonging to such
a club. Refreshments are served regularly. The only exception was the meeting in
April, when it was voted to buy a War-Savings Stamp with treasury funds. The dues
are ten cents a month.
The officers elected at the last meeting to serve next term are: President, Carl
Cassone l19g Vice-President, Georgianna Althenn '20, Treasurer, Bertram Shover 20,
Secretary, Blanche GeWehr '21, Quartermaster, John Baker '19.

"Even in wartime we cannot afford for a moment to forego the great and beneficent
strain of thought and idealism that Greece and Rome have handed down to us. Hun-
dreds of men in the trenches and training camps have been heartened and nerved to
their grim tasks by some remembered snatches of Euripides, or Horace, or the eclogues
of Virgil. There are more copies of Virgil and Caesar and Cicero sold every year than
of most modern novels." This is not so strange when we discover that those old fellows
were just as human as is our own corner of Eighth and Hamilton Streets. The classics
are still safe.

The Literarg Society

THE 1918 EPITOME
Temporary organization of the society took place on Thursday, September 20, 1917,
Organization under a constitution followed on Friday, November 2, the temporary
officers were elected for the year, and the organization was christened the "Franklin
Literary Society." In the meantime two meetings were held at two week intervals.
High aims were held for this society. It was found indispensable to the welfare of
the school, its training was needed, and its benefits were longingly thot of. We aimed to
inspire the 1300 people of our High School with something more ideal than the movie
furnishes. We hoped to build up a little circle of friendships, intellectual, like those of
Johnson and Franklin, only larger in size, which would enclose dear old High School
closely within it. Follow, Dear Reader, the history of one year's efforts and results.
ERA, THE FIRST
The average time of session for the first f1ve meetings was one hour and twenty
minutes. The average attendance was 143. We saw success on the condition that every-
one would do his bit, leave his hammer at home, and bring his horn. The programs
were purely literary. Consisting of solos, duets, and quartettes, both instrumental and
vocal, essays, readings, parodys, impropmtu speaking and debates. Yet we lacked the
essential keen interest. This was discomforting. The environment was offered as the
excuse. It seemed to ht, for how could our puny efforts begin to compare with the
-stupendous work about us-our new High School-and offer to it a suitable compan-
ionship. Then it got to the stage where our order was infamously disrespectful and
atrocious. Something had to be done. A powerful plea was made by the Principal, he
then, like a good Christian, answered his own prayer by devising an enrollment system
admitting only members to society meetings which would be held during school hours.
ERA, THE SECOND
Immediately the attendance increased, the average was 575. With our presence
and kind attention did we encourage our professional performers. No more was there
discourteous clapping, or applause for the Scripture Reading. 100 per cent. conduct was
attained. When impromptus were the order, the participant invariably responded, and
the results proved that those present were thankful that such a good speaker was chosen
for the subect. Progress was smooth, but all agreed that action was slow. Racy things
were watned. Then we experienced our first fall from our ideal, for we discarded prin-
ciple and compiled programs which were burlesques of what a Literary Society meeting
ought to be. N o trouble in the least was experienced from knockers.
The iickleness of some of our audiences was unaccountable, for there were times
when there was more applause when the person walked on the stage than when he went
off, even tho the production was good. True sportsmanship prevailed all around.
Nearly all the participants gained confidence as they worked off their numbers. Calls
for volunteers for future programs were liberally responded to.
May this good constantly be dispensed by the Franklin Literary Society. May the
Society continue to grow in ambition and numbers, for in doing so, each member will re-
ceive one more strong tie binding him to his Alma Mater, The Allentown High School.

Last October Prof. R. P. Holben addressed letters to Easton and Bethlehem High
Schools, calling a meeting of these schools at Allentown for the purpose of discussing the
Organization of a debating league As a result of the meeting such a league was formed,
an organization effected and a constitution adopted. The league is now an established
fact and will always be a credit to Allentown High School, its founder.
The idea of a debating league at once took a strong hold on the students of the
school as evidenced by the splendid financial and moral support given Allentown's team.
Allentown did not win a debate this year and as a result our beautiful Canary and Blue
silk banner, passed into the possession of Bethlehem for a year. Next term this banner
must not only be regained but in addition we hope to get a red and white one for our
The prospects for next year are splendid. Two invaluable members of the team, it
is true, are lost-namely, Ernest McCready, thru graduation, and Willis Santee '20,
'thru sickness. Four 'Varsity debaters remain, however, to form the nucleus for a victori-
ous team next year, namely: Arthur Gillespie '19, Gerard Mest '19, Herbert Brown '20
and Jacob Tallman '20.

The Adelphians, the first debating society organized in the history of A. H. S., have
rounded out the second year of their history with flying colors. The constitution of the
Society was signed and adopted on March 12, 1917.
Literary activities were non-existent at A. H. S. when the Adelphians founded their
society and credit for their renaissance belongs to the Adelphians. Their loyalty and
progressive spirit has characterized the Adelphians from the start. The fraternity of its
members is the outstanding fact of its history. The high standard that is demanded
limits the membership to only the very best in the school.
The Adelphians lost the debate with the Oracle last year, but did not lose their
nerve. They came back this year by placing four Adelphians on the inter-scholastic
debating team, or as many as all other societies put together. A mock trial was presented
to the school in September with great success. The first annual Adelphian banquet was
held on February 1, at the Guthsville Hotel. A chicken and waffle dinner followed by
speeches, dancing and games were the order of the evening.
The Adelphians held meetings regularly every week from November to April,
rendering a program at each meeting. The membership has been doubld since the
society's organization, having a total membership at present of forty-three. In every
way the Adelphian Society is one of the best organized and promising organizations in
the High School. The following are its members:
Misses Anna Apgar, Florence Cary, Ruth George, Gladys Hersh, Mary Kengel,
Alice Knecht, Marion Kresge, Laura Foreman, Nina Nagle, Ruth Raker, Maude Snyder,
and Messrs. John Abbott, Charles Bauer, Herbert Brown, Ned Bohlen, F. S. Butterweck,
Walter Devine, Edward Darms, David Dickey, Charles Good, William Hager, Ellwood
Helfrich, William Hillegass, Edwin Huff, Elmer Huhn, Dominick Isabella, Richard
Kammel, Edgar Newhard, Edgar A. Poe, Paul Paine, Elzert Persons, Winton Rein-
smith, jacob Swartz, Walter Romig, Elmer Shaffer, john Shaffer, Carl Sipple, Jacob
Tallman, Elbridge Walker, Warren Wenner, William Wetherhold. The faculty mem-
bers are Miss Florence Cobaugh, Critic, and Mr. R. P. Holben, Honorary President.

The Oracle De-hating Societg
The Oracle Debating Society was organized on March 30, 1917, by the class of 719,
then Sophomores. The main reason for this organization was a challenge to a public
debate from the Freshmen who had formed a similar society some time before.
As soon as the society was organized, the challenge was accepted. The Oracles
chose the subject which was "Resolved, that the Moving Picture Theatre forms a desir-
able place of amusement? The Freshmen chose the affrmative side to argue on, so the
Oracles began work on the negative.
There was now active competition for the debating team. The society had weekly
meetings which were made very interesting by general debating and impromptu speak-
ing. Finally a debating team of two speakers and an alternate was chosen with the as-
sistance of Prof. Norgang, who was the faculty advisor of the Society.
After several weeks of silent preparation the debate was held on May 15. Although
the Freshmen defended their side with great ability and thought, the Oracles won by a
unanimous vote of the judges. Debating had, by this time, become quite interesting to
the members of the society. The weekly meetings were continued with great success until
the end of the term. At the last meeting a vote was taken to admit all classes to member-
ship. This was passed, now making the Society a school organization.
With the opening of school in September, the Oracles again began their meetings,
but, owing to the organization of a literary society, the meetings were held every two
weeks. Debating in various forms was practiced.
At the beginning of December, an Inter-scholastic Debating League was formed be-
tween Bethlehem, Easton, and Allentown High Schools. This gave the Oracles a chance
to get some of their members on the school debating team. Hard study was taken up by
several of the members, and, just before Christmas, when the trials were held, three
Oracle members made the teamg two as speakers, and one alternate.
The interscholastic debate was not held until April 15, and it was a great strain on
the debaters. It was due to this fact that there was no inter-society debate this year.
i The active part of the work was now over, and the society discontinued its meetings
early on account of the number of other activities and increasing lack of interest. It is
hoped, however, that the Oracle Debating Society will thrive next year with greater zeal

E Libra!-lj Lilararimx :
A new phase of school life in the High School during the past year was the Library.
The Junior and Senior Classes distinctly remember how difficult it was to get access to
the few reference books in the old High School. They looked forward with keen interest
to the time when the commodious and delightful room in the new building should be open
to the student body. During the first year, for some reason or other, the students could
only look into the room through the glass doors and see the beginnings of an apparently
excellent reference library nicely arranged in glass cases. However, th old saying "all
things come to him who waits" came true in the summer of 1917, when the Board of
Education assigned the care of the library to Mr. Harting in addition to his duties of
The advantages to the students have been three-fold up to the present. First and
foremost, it is a reference library. It contains some of the latest and best encyclopedias
in the market today. It is fairly well equipped with reference books for the department
of English, It is poorly equipped with books in reference to history, economics, science
and the practical arts. Secondly, it is a reading room in which quite a number of maga-
zines and periodicals are kept to keep the student body posted on the problems of the day
and the prospects of the future. Thirdly, it is a place of refuge for those who are
temporarily without a habitation through the absence of a teacher caused by sickness or
other vicissitudes which must needs be frequent in a large body of men and women.
Heretofore, when a teacher was absent with no one to look after his or her divisions, the
pupils were apt to stray about the building in accordance with their own sweet will and
would naturally get into mischief and be a nuisance to those who were at work. Finally,
this is an age of books. No High School of any pretentions whatsoever could afford to
be without a good reference library containing books that would otherwise be beyond the
reach of the masses. The safety of the Republic depends largely on the intelligence of
the citizens. The public library is only second in importance to the public school in at-
taining that end. Therefore money invested in choice books for the use of the boys and
girls of this and later days will be one of the best possible uses of public money.

Two seasons have passed since the organization of our Chorus and Orchestra, and
considering the time "at which we have been at this business," splendid results have
been attained, in fact I dare say better results have already been achieved than at many
other High Schools of which I have knowledge, where there have existed these same or-
ganizations for several years. During our short career, there appeared with us at con-
certs the followihg artists: Miss Olive Kline, sopranog Miss Mary M. Barrett, sopranog
Marie Stone Langston, contraltog and Mr. Reinald Werrenrath, baritone. Not only did
the newspapers of our city speak well of these organizations, classifying them among-the
best in the citv, but the soloists always without being asked, lavishly praised their efforts.
One of the pleasant things to me is the fact that we have eight young ladies in our
Orchestra-a custom that is discouraged at some co-educational institutions.
One of the things which I regret is the attitude of so many of the boys twith good
tenor and bass voicesj toward the Chorus and toward singing in general. I am sorry
to say that the male section of our Chorus 1 although goodj is not representative of the
best in the school. I say this with all due respect to the boys that are faithful and "have
done their bit" to put the Chorus on a high plane. Such boys as refuse to sing in the
Chorus, without a. legitimate reason are not only lowering the standard of the school but
more than that, they are injuring their own individual interests, and mark this state-
ment, the time will come some day when they will regret that they did not embrace this
opportunity of improving themselves mentally and physically, for without going into
any arguments about it, vocal music has proven itself to be the means of producing a
more pleasing speaking voice and a larger compass, and who dare say that they do not
wish to possess these qualities, even for ordinary every-day life.
When the United States entered this terrible world war and our boys went to the
different Officers' Training Camps, a large percentage failed to receive thir commis-
sions, simply because their voices were not sufficiently developed to give "the commands"
satisfactorily, the government at once sent Song Leaders to these Camps and singing be-
came a regular part of their daily work with the result that it reduced the percentage of
failures to a minimum. Q
But as mentioned previously I feel proud of the results attained and hope that each
year will be an improvement on the past.
To the Seniors who leave us this year let me say: Don't forget us, encourage us by
your presence at our future concerts, for through these organizations many a boy and
girl will get their start musically which in some cases will bloom into artistic careers, we

The Patriotic League
The Patriotic League is an organization for girls, promoted by the Junior War
Work Council of the Y. W. C. A., and the members sign the following pledge:
"I pledge to express my patriotism-
'tBy doing better than ever before whatever work I have to dog
"By rendering whatever special service I can to my community and country,
"By living up to the highest standards of character and honor and helping others
to do the same."
The High School Section, one of the first in the city, was 'organized under the lead-
ership of Miss Mary F. Mosser last September. The officers elected for the term were
Anna Bowen '18, President, and Miriam Wertman '18, Secretary and Treasurer. At
this time the girls decided to make the special service of the Section, Red Cross Knitting.
During the winter we also made trench candles and scrap books for the soldiers and col-
lected a small amount for the Baby Fund.
Once a month all the sections meet together. Of course, the most important and
best QP, League night was Monday, April 8, when the High School Section took entire
charge of the programme. A play, "Ye Village Schule of Long Ago" was the chief at-
traction. Mrs. Boyd, the wife of one of the officers at Camp Crane, coached the girls.
In view of the fact that most of the girls had not participated in a play before, they did
Some of the musical members of the League prepared a Kitchen Symphony under
the direction of Miss Irene Walbert. Up to this time we had not realized how much
harmony lay dormant in our household utensils. The A. H. S. Girls' Octette, the Hoola.
Jazz Band, and Mr. Stewart Fox from Camp Crane, who recited, completed the pro-
gramme. A dance in the gymnasium followed.
The Section has adopted a constitution and elected officers for the next term. Dur-
ing the summer months the girls will meet at the Y. W. C. A. rooms on Hamilton Street
above Ninth. They have also planned for hikes and picnics during vacation.
Surely, every girl at High recognizes that she must help win the war. Thru the
Patriotic Leagueyou can work for Uncle Sam and the boys in whatever way you prefer,
and as the High School is given credit for the work done you will be boosting the school
too. We wish all the girls in '19, '20, and '21 would join the Patriotic League and
work to 'tcan the Kaiser." We can do it, we will do it, but how soon depends on you.

The Athletic Association as
RICHARD L. SCHMOYER President
Different ages have stressed different phases of education. In our own day and
nation tremendous changes in school curricula have taken place. When the Class of
1018 entered first grade no one dreamt that by its graduation day physical training would
be one of the requirements for crossing the goal line. Yet such is the case. Nor is that
all. School Boards begin to erect and equip gymnasiums and athletic fields for in-door
and open-air contests and games of various kinds.
Allentown was one of the pioneer cities in tearing down the high board fences-
jail walls in miniature-which hemmed in the school buildings in earlier days, and open-
ing up the school grounds to the children of the city twelve months in the year. Notwith-
standing the fact that hundreds of ,children visit the playgrounds daily during the sum-
mer months, the lawn part at many of the buildings would be a credit to a professional
landscape gardener. Thus the children of the city have conclusively proved that organ-
ized games and vandalism are not necessarily concomitant.
Few, if any, ages or nations have been more intellectual than Greece in the days of
Pericles. Is it not a peculiar coincidence that so near an approach to physical perfec-
tion and intellectual preeminence should be found in the state which had for a long time
given more attention to physical training and athletic contests than any other country?
In connection with Greece a few of the requirements of the contestants in the games
of those days ought to be mentioned. A participant in the Olympic Games had to be of
pure Hellenic descent and without reproach in civil life and conduct. He had to undergo
ten months' continuous training in the gymnasium. On the day of the games the con-
testants, with hands on the bleeding victims offered in sacrifice, took an oath that they
have complied with the requirements and that they will play the game without guile.
Then, with a foot on the line, they waited for anyone to challenge their descent or char-
acter. The victor was presented with a crown of olive leaves and a palm for the hand.
Of course nothing was too good for him in the estimation of his fellow citizens and high
honors, rich gifts, and everlasting renown followed in the wake of victory.
In the High School the "A" takes the place of the palm and the crown of olives.
It is a fixed principle of the managers of athletics that none of the contestants take un-
fair advantage of their opponents, preferring an honorable defeat to a dishonorable vic-
tory. They realize full well that such a course spells defeat now and then in contests
with less scrupulous managements but there can be no satisfaction that lasts in victories
that are only apparent.
The two teams that won more games than their opponents were the Girls Basketball
and the baseball team. The future prospects of some of the other teams appear in
radiant hues to their respective managers. They are on the trail of excellent material
in the fore and background.
One of the distinctive features of present day education is preparation for service.
There is considerable difference of opinion among educators in reference to the courses
of study which best subserve that purpose. But there can be no doubt that a strong body
and good health are essential to render the best services to one's country or fellowmen.
If athletics do not attain that goal, it is the fault of the management and not of athletics.
That they do will not be denied by those who observe the results of continuous training
for a few months. To such observers there is no doubt that Athletics can rightfully
claim a fair proportion of a pupilis school life.

This was the most promising year since 1915. Material from all classes and lt
was a hard matter to select the "service team."
As to numbers the juniors were strongest and with the majority of the material left
a better year than even 1915 is assured for next year. '
Our main and only deiiciency was in the high and low hurdles. Only one real
person stuck for the regular season. There was other promising material for these
events that never reported for practice.
The relay team showed promise when they came within.1 3-5 seconds of the high
school 1-mile Relay record, at the Penn Relays, regardless of the fact that they only
placed fourth. With only Connelly leaving and with J. Starner and E. Painter and
others to fill his place a 'trecord" relay team should be produced next year.
One weak point in the team was the lack of continual "team work," though each
man must do his own work there dare be no ill feeling or inner-competition. Any team
must fully harmonize to be a real true success.
A new meet in history of A. H. S. track was with Perkiomen School. Though the
team did not expect more than 10 points they managed to acquire 30 to their opponents'
Frequent bad weather delayed the team somewhat but they "came round into
form" and made a successful year of it.

Though not the most successful season for A. H. S. the football team under the
leadership of Raymond Snyder made a fair showing.
Spirit was lacking both in the team and student body and as a result the team did
not accomplish what they surely would have done otherwise. Usually the team was
"scared" by the mere name of the school and it was really the name that defeated the team
and not the opposing team.
Our first game was at Norristown, where we lost, 14-0.
The next Saturday Easton paid us a visit and took home our present in the form of
a 24-0 victory.
Following this we took revenge on Pottsville and won by the score of 9-0. This was
the cleanest and non-arguing game of the season.
On Booster Day Moravian Parochial was substituted for Lafayette Freshmen. Re-
sult was a 6-0 victory for A. H. S.
The next game at Lebanon was a victory for Lebanon, 27-6, but a victory "without
honor," for they had acquired our signals and knew our every play.
In our next game the Muhlenberg Sophs attempted to continue the plan of the
Alumni, but failed. 'I' he game ended in a 16-0 victory for A. H. S.
The iinal game at Wilkes-Barre on Thanksgiving Day proved a poor one for A. H.
S. Though W.-B. went into the game with the game lost, in spirit, they managed to pull
ahead and nose out a 19-7 victory.

we lose four of the team and it will be hard to find someone to take the
place of Miss McFadden, who has been the star for two years. Miss Mack has been
improving so fast that we may hope for great things from her next year. We are glad
that Miss Curley remains at center, although she has no side partner, since Miss
Wagner is leaving. Although we lose both guards, Miss Flexer will be a iine guard
for she is both tall and quick and has already shown what she can do and with the
material from the under classes the remaining positions will be filled. The team last

will do even better. It can only be done by team

What makes up a good magazine? Certainly only through the pursuance of an
equal and thorough development of each department can a standard of high excellency
be attained. It is generally conceded that the wit section receives first attention, but
what then comes next? We recognize the fact that a staff may adopt one department or
other for special consideration, and probably neglect a department that another paper
considers important. But success depends not upon this. It depends upon the fresh,
snappy, interesting write-up which carries home a point. This is the reason why our
paper ranks so high, basing from criticisms. A staff has many ways of ascertaining
its success. Two may be employed successfully--the attitude of th'e student-body
represented bv the paper-the criticisms of friendly magazines. These are the fore-
casters of good work. There are times when quite a number of magazines comment
upon one magazine. Tracing these criticisms is tremendous pleasure, and you may
rest assured that on reading that paper you will find first class work. lVe have received
many helpful criticisms. Thru these and our observations of other magazines valuable
benefits were derived, the greater number of which it was impossible to pursue to their
full course this year. These, coupled with some excellent original plans, will be thor-
oughly exploited by the new staff, and then the CANARY AND BLUE will have earned
a place among the stars. L
During this year we have experienced most pleasant relations with other high
schools, and we pass their names down so these relations may not be severed. We con-
tend that the exchange department is the finest in any paper because of the pleasure in
it, the new ideas, and the fine inter-school spirit and feeling afforded. ,
We close our work with hearty and sincere wishes for the success of all school
publications, but most abundantly for our CANARY AND BLUE.
Following are some of the comments we have received this year:

appropriate for a football issue. Your editorials are all appropriate and rousing. Certainly you
should have more support and interest in athletics. All your athletic items are very fine, especially
the one on "The Value of Athletic Compensation." The two cartoons are very clever. It would be
better to have your Class Notes and Society Notes in separate departments. The Alumni is es-
pecially well written. Your Exchange Department would be better if you would comment on your
exchanges. Have a few more jokes. We are glad you give a little space and time to dramatics.

2 CLASS PRQPHECY I s
Upon a warm, sultry afternoon late last July I lay, almost helpless, upon the snow-white
bed of Private Ward 83, at the Princess Eugene Hospital, New York. The last I remembered
was a shady recollection of some past existence where the events were far from over-pleasant.
Confinement had always been unpleasant for me, but here I was, with a broken leg that would
take another three weeks to mend. Even at that, I smiled cheerfully to the attending nurse as she
entered and went about her duties. Yes, 1 confess, she was-er---sort of, well, pretty, don't you
know. "I feel thirsty," I said, "can I have a drink ?" "1'll go and see," she replied.
As she left the room a sort of haze clouded my vision. It was as if a heavy mist was slowly
enveloping me. But presently the nurse returned and stated that I could have some cold grape-
juice in a little while. As she was about to leave the room again, I called to her and she returned.
"Will you please find a telephone number for me ?" I inquired. "I want to speak to C. K. llulwer,
on Frankel Street." Smilingly she reached for the directory and searched it awhile in silence. Then,
-"Dr. C. K. Bulwer, Electro-physician, 11030 Frankel Street, West." "That's it," I cried. "What
is'the number, please?" "Good, One-Nine-One-Eight." The mist seemed to approach, not
stealthily any longer, but in openface leaps and bounds. "Thank you," 1 said as I groped for the
phone on the side table. "Remember," she warned, "Dr. Scott says re--'I But I did not hear her.
Drat Dr. Scott anyhow!
Still the mist approached. It was almost upon me when a sweet voice came over the wire,
"Number please." "Good, One-Nine-One- Eight." A pause followed, during which I heard her
repeated rings. And still the mist approached. It was a crouching monster, ready to envelop me
at my slightest sign of weakness. UNO one answers," replied exchange. Panic seized me. "Won't
you please try again?" I pleaded. "What was the number, please?" In my agitation I revealed
the key to my thoughts as I hastily replied, "Good Old Nineteen, Eighteen."
A flash of lightning pierced the mist and was gone. At the same time a reassuring voice
said, 'LI am the Spirit of Nineteen Eighteen. Command and I obey!"
My thoughts were first of the Arabian Nights and Alladin's Wonderful Lamp, but then
they returned to dear old High. In a twinkling my unknown friend said, "The High School
Building that you were so proud of-that grand new building-is no more, for it now serves only
as the office, reception and dining-hall of the present gigantic new Allentown High School."
"But what of the Class of 'l8," I cried,
"VVilliam Heberling, the president of your famous class, after returning from Europe in
'22, took up Y. M. C. A. work and is now in Panama, running the largest gymnasium in that
state. He is well on the way of being the most influential man in the province. Then. there's
the vice-president, Elizabeth Hagenbuch, whose "Lieut" returned a full-fledged colonel. She has
abandoned domestic science for the pursuit of the truer scince, that of home-making."
By this time I had reconciled myself to the fact that, as the thought of each classmate was
answered the correct whereabouts of every member was plainly disclosed.
E. FRED IMCCREADY, our esteemed Editor-in-chief, after completing a course at a famous
banquet, finally resolved to travel. He is at present managing the "Make Ready Fuel and Lumber
Company in Michigan. The firm is making millions extracting gasoline from wooden toothpicks.
It took EDWARD QUIER ten years to know he had real musical talent. But now the famous
Quicr's Choir of a prominent New York Church is a great Sunday attraction in that place.
HARRY OSWALD, the class giant, is holding a lucrative position in a downtown department
store disguised as one of their marble pillars. U

PAUL SMITH and ROGER DIETRICK, two commercial boys, have formed a partnership for the

I did not know he was musically inclined." HNeither did I." replied the wise one, "you sec, he
has become a freight and transfer man."
LATHROP RAMSAY has lately become a playwright. His latest Eighth Street triumph has been,

Life of an Editor
It will always bring to the Class of 1918 a feeling of sadness and remorse that we
did not act sooner in this most terrible of tragedies. We all saw it coming, and yet we
delayed. Had we but known in time, we might have prevented the presence of those
unnecessary grease-spots in our auditorium-it would have been an easy matter to lend
our Editor a revolver or "Rough-on-Rats."
The story goes away back to the beginning of history. Our Editor always was a
precocious child, given to big words, bid ideas, and a big head,- he wore a 724 hat.
He has remained as erratic as dear Professor Weills says, and also like the dear
Professor, he developed a bad case on the feminine sex. Perhaps this was the begin-
ning of the tragedyg we will never know. At any rate, when he was elected "Mr. Editor
of the Canary in Chief" his iron constitution began to rust. The strain was tremendous.
At times it seemed as tho he must fade before our very eyes. Finally it was determined
that something must be done. Pictures were taken to send to the Ford Manufacturing
Company, specialists in nut-ology. At the top of the opposite page you may see two
of them, taken during his last days. Notice the noble, careworn brow, the haggard
features and the sloppy tie,--the girls never could make him tie it correctly. Such
was our editor in days gone by. No more shall we hear him ubawl out" the staff, no
longer will he borrow war-taxes from his friends, never again will he roam the halls
helping others to "get in wrong."
The climax came the day after the last proof for the Final Issue was read.
Imagine the reaction,-"nothing to do till tomorrow." after having done everything at
once for days previous! At last, on that fateful day in june, our Editor came to school
with a look less haggard than usual. Someone, we conceal the murderer's name, found
a pin on him. and accused him of stealing it from the Physics Lab. It was enough
to make a sane man crazy, and it aroused all the repressed ravings of the worn out
brain: he determined to escape from school. Being continually pestered by girls. this
was hard to do. At last he jumped to the roof, waved goodbye to his friend, Kathryn
Susan Hagenbuch fsee photoj, removed his coat and jumped.
Queer as it may seem, he remained unhurt. But now he had the craze. Into the
auditorium he went, and climbed to its highest point. His motive can only be guessed
at. Perhaps he thought he was going to bed. Maybe he was looking for a prominent
place from which to orate. We saw him get out a book. Was he going to select the
text for his funeral sermon? No, it was only a book on "How to Know a jitney at
Sight." When he had finished reading he arose, yawned, and with a look of utter
weariness let himself sink to eternal sleep.
But he did not fall asleep that quick. He found himself alive, so he sadly gathered
his scattered shin bones and ligaments and tried to clean up the grease spots. What a
miserable failure he had made of his attempt at suicide! He knew now he could stand
any shock, so he went to the office for his report. Well, he knew that he had flunked out.
He gazed at the pasteboard, swooned, and fell. Wonder of wonders! he had passed.
An hour later the doctor shook his head hopelessly. Then our editor came to for
just a moment, his last on earth. "You poor fish! Where's that copy?"
The funeral was largely attended, and our departed friend was reverently covered
with yellow earth and green sod. tSee photo.j
The legend on his modest marker o'er the spot where rests his mortal dust reads in
UWFC touching W01'dS! The rose is red, the sky is blue
Our job is finished-our Editor too.

El FAREWELL W
To Wnoixf IT MAY CoNcERN:-
Dear teachers and whoever else be curious, well we know that you all are now con-
sumed with deep pain and grief to find that your fondest beliefs in various individuals
of the Class of 1918 have been erroneous. It has indeed been a sad duty to disillusion
you-and yet we dared not to publish in this work "soft soapl' for the benefit of each
individual lest his education be incomplete and he, going out into the world beyond,
should carry with him only a swelled head and a great sense of his own importance.
Thus it has been our unfortunate lot to show, as in a mirror, that students, as well
as other things, are not always as they seem.
However, do not judge us solely by the gossip penned beneath our names. We
are not all in love, nor are we all crazy. Not everyone is a skillful "rider," neither
do we all spend our entire time in sleep. Our percentage of f'incorrigible" boys and
"chewing-gum" girls is no higher than usual. And again on the other hand we would
not have you believe that each and everyone of us is entirely sober, industrious and
guileless-that tribute is paid only when the author knows not whereof he speaks.
Fommonly this is called Hpaddingf'
Rather, kind reader, we would ask that you remember us, one and all, as a merry
crowd. not of unusual merit, but jolly and good-naturedg given to work when necessary
and play if possible, with a useable conscience and a fair conception of honorg and
happily endowed with "pep" and pride and ambition.

We have the very best
shop equipment and
every facility for prompt
production of quality
The famous Levy
Acid Blast process gives
our half-tones a cleaner,
deeper, sharper etching
than the tub method
most commonly used,
and makes it easier for
your printer to give you
a first class job.
The Second is Starf-
ford Co-operation. For
the benefit of our cus-
tomers in their dealing
with us, we have pre-
pared a valuable hand-
book entitled "Engrav-
ing for College and
containing 164 pages
and over 300 illustra-
tions, and giving com-
plete information in re-
gard to planning your
publication, the prepara-
tion of copy, and order-
ing of engravings. This
book simplifies order-
ing, prevents costly mis-
takes, and means high
quality engravings at
lowest cost. We do not
sell it--but we lend a
copy to the staff of each
publication for which
we make engravings.
WE Lend a Copy of this
Book to the Staff of every
Publication for which we
make the Engravings
Let Stafford make your commencement. invitations, fraternity statipnery,
visiting cards, and any other copper plate engraving or steel die embossing.
We have a large department devoted exclusively to this class of work, and can
give you both quality and service. Samples with prices on request.
