EX- LI B RI
For three glorious years we have been working together as a
class-sharing our ups and downs, slaving over English, trying to fathom
But now our book-learning days are over, our teachers will no
longer be able to ease the bumps. We are marching in the front line.
This is a friendly book, designed to recall our friends, our teachers,
and all the funny things that happened in classrooms. Because of world
conditions, there may be some of us who will never again roam these
halls. But we shall always be here in spirit, watching other boys and
girls coming in, other men and women marching out.
All hail our Alma Materydear,
Our voice of praise and glory hear,
To whom all reverence we bear,
Of you forgetful we'll be ne'en
We shall forever for you yearn,
And cherish all that we may leam
Through future days of life,
'Mid ioy and strife,
True may we stand, both to you
And Canary and Blue.
Throughout the land of you we'll sing
Loud will our praises ever ring,
Of days that have passed by,
Fond memories of dear old high.
Oh, Alma Mater, hear our praise,
To you all honor we do raise!
Through future days of life,
'Mid ioy and strife,
True may we stand, bofh to you
And Canary and Blue.

The class of l943, the thirtieth to be graduated during the principalship of Daniel
W. Hamm, feels that it is fitting and proper to present here both a record and a composite
portrait of the man to whom this Comus is affectionately dedicated, the man under
whose leadership the school has established, and for thirty years maintained a reputation
for sound training and admirable character.
Daniel W. Hamm, the son of Mary A. Werner and Beniamin K. Hamm, was born
February l3, 1877, in Albany Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania. Four years later
the family moved to Allentown, where the boy got his readin', writin', and 'rithmetic in the
fifth ward school and in the high school, then in the Wolfe Building at Ninth and Chew
Streets. Long hours of study at Muhlenberg College made firm a belief in organization
of work and in the discipline of mind and spirit that Mr. Hamm has continued to cherish
for himself and has imprinted upon all the educational and administrative leadership
with which he has been entrusted.
A teacher in the Stevens school in i9Oi, its principal in l904, elected to teach history
and political and commercial geography in the high school in l9l0, and made principal
in l9l3 this tells the story of his progress. But it doesn't tell the whole story.
To see the tall, impeccably groomed,
lithe figure take a stairway two steps at a
time is to discard all notion of an unbreakable
pedagogical dignity. To watch him read,
face alight, some fine passage lovingly
chosen from a treasured book, is to glimpse
his rare appreciation of the beautiful
in expression. To see him touch a splendid
blossom brought for his appraisal by some
faculty gardner is to sense the knowledge
and the wonder of the naturalist. To see him
at tender ease with his family, his gracious
wife and their children, Evelyn and Frederick,
both with established homes of their own,
and the two grandchildren, Sandra, less than
a year old, and Billy, five, is to know him at
A naturalist, Mr. Hamm is planning to
complete his already extensive catalogue of
the plant and insect life of Lehigh County,
to add to his amazing collection of the
mosses of this area, and to go on with his
work in microscopic botany. Among his
treasured experiences are the summers he
spent in Maine and in the Adirondacks,when
at the appointment of Gifford Pinchot he
helped on the survey of a l25,000-acre
tract, made by the United States Bureau of
Forestry for the Great Northern Paper
Company. And one of his "small personal
satisfactions" has been his culture of flowers.
Waldheim Sunshine and Wahldeim Glory
are two of the several dahlias he has
originated. These are listed in current seed
His interests are many. He is a lover
of books, and of beauty in books. The 2500
volumes in his personal library have been
chosen both for their wealth of expression
and for their exquisite bookcraft. Chief
among them are the biographies of the
sound men who have led or influenced some
definite period in American history. And
there are books and books of science,
books and books recording in word and
picture the work of the naturalists. There are
rare copies of the old classics, there are
thoughtful books analyzing our own times.
But there are few novels, Mr. Hamm is
impatient of "books that have no substance."
There's a stamp collection, too, that is
still going on. He delights in it, works at it,
admits to "about forty-odd thousand
varieties," but adds that "rarities are not
for school teachers." The philatelists who
have seen it insist that it is a great collection.
His thought, "A teacher must be inter-
ested in his subiect and in his students. lf
that interest isn't there, he might iust as well
not be teaching," has guided his own work
as a teacher. With the same deep warmth
that has animated his many interests, he has
instilled the forces of character in his stu-
dents. He has insisted on high standards of
scholarship, but his true interest is more than
schooling,---it is the foundation of education.
"But," commented a man from town who
happened along while this record was in
the making, "you don't really know Dan
Hamm unless you have gone fishing with
him." lt seems that many a faculty man,
many a man from the town, recalls fishing
trips --Ambrose Light, Barnegat Bay, Angle-
sea, off Cape May, tuna fishing at Beach
Haven, at Lake Rideau in Canada, and
fresh water fishing all around this section
of the state. "l'll bring you a good picture,"
said his fisherman crony, and that adds
another face to the composite portrait.
The Masonic orders of town could add
more to the picture. There is no need to
review for them the high place Daniel Hamm
has attained, or the many honors they have
To the school then, the most important
element of all has been the earnest care and
thought he has given to every student who
has passed through the halls of high school.
True, there may be many who have never
been "called to the office" either for advice,
admonition, or in conference on school activi-
ties, there may be others who, in so large
a school, may never have had a personal
conversation with their principal, but person-
ally known or not, their welfare has been his
deepest concern. Those with whom he has
had personal association cherish the memory
of the deep-voiced teacher who became
quietly their friend and counselor.
Many faces has the life ofa man. Some
see them all. Others see this side, others
that. But through any one of them, or all of
them, the true man will shine.

History of the Class of T943
lt's hard for us who now are leaving to say good-by to a truly grand schoole-a
school to which we've become fondly attached. But we have had our time, we must move
on to make room for another senior class, we must go out in the world and offer our
services where they are so greatly needed. While we were here, though, we left our
mark-quite an impressive record, in fact.
It was on September 6, 1940, that the Allentown High School saw for the first time
the boys and girls who were to make up the Class of '43. Traditionally, we were as scared
as any other group of sophs, but, actually, we quickly moved into the regular high
school life, and soon we found ourselves an important part of the organizations and
activities. By pushing the upperclassmen for places on the athletic teams and even beating
them to parts in the Inter-class play and positions on the staff of the Canary and Blue,
we established a reputation as a hustling class, with George Stavridis president.
Our iunior year saw us continuing our progress, staging one successful event after
another. The Junior Prom was said to have been one of the largest ever held, the Junior
Class Play, Growing Pains, saw a capacity house heartily enioy a rollicking comedy
and the athletic teams were experiencing changes in their lineups as juniors battled for
and won starting positions. Again we held our own in competition with the other classes,
capturing parts in the Inter-class play, Ever Since Eve, and attaining prominence in other
school activities. The organization of the new Air Raid Precaution system saw iuniors given
responsible posts. Later we showed our unity by collecting class dues, the first Junior
Class to do so for many years. This was under the presidency of George Gebert.
When we returned as seniors, we came with the manifest realization that we were a
part of a nation at war. A great many changes in our school life were to be noted, but
with our customary spirit of cooperation, we did our utmost to adiust ourselves to the new
As usual, we staged a class play, another fine performance, entitled Every Family
Has One. Then there was that sensational Turkey Day battle against Bethlehem, with
the tying touchdown scored in the last three seconds of play. Yes, and we experienced
oher thrilling moments-at basketball games, in the classroom, and faced with more
serious momentse-work to be done, decisions to be made, and we enioyed a few lighter
moments-a bit of fun, a bit of laughter.
We learned from each moment, from all of them, and found the sum to be A. H. S.
Although our senior year was more or less broken up by the demands of war-
bythe draft and by rationing, we have struggled through until we now stand at the thres-
hold of our future. But a greater struggle still confronts us, we are determined to be
victorious in it. While at A. H. S. we have made friendships, conquered hardships, gained
nvaluable experience-factors which may prove decisive in the battle of life.

ACKERMAN, JOYCE M. Joyce
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
Curly hair and nice brown eyes describe the "rose among
thorns" of the aeronautics class. Although the only girl in the class,
she carries ot? most of the honors, and that holds true in all other
mathematical subiects. Quiet, but with a ready smile and an under-
standing nature, she is a swell pal. Being a whizz in her studies
does not keep her from finding time to do some drawing, ice-
skating, hiking and "roughing it." Her greatest delights are apri-
cot pie and chocolate candy. Joyce is looking forward to a career in
ADAMS, EDWIN Eddie
Honest men marry soon, wise men not at all.
Edwin is interested in printing more than in anything else.
ln fact, he prints signs and posters in his spare time. He enioys
playing basketball, football, and table tennis. Most of the time
he enioys class work, too. He did not engage in sports at school,
but he was an usher at football and basketball games.

ADAMS, HELEN Spggk
A fine character is worth more than great wealth,
it opens the door to all hearts.
Personality is a credit, and Helen gets all the credit. We
hardly know she's around, but that applies to the best. She may
be reserved and quiet, but she's extremely capable. She is
charming and always dependable.
ADAMS, JOYCE Joyce
A liberal mouth with happy corners.
Joyce is one of those girls who is always willing to help every-
one. She has a cheery disposition and is a true friend. Joyce wants
to be an undertaker. Here's hoping she succeeds.

ALBRIGHT, ROBERT H. Blondie
l'm a women hater, but oh you country girls.
Bob is a husky, good looking young fellow who intends to
make iournalism his life work. He has many friends, but says
girls "do not worry him." He is not too studious, but studies, and
gets along with his teachers. He doesn't go in much for sports,
but is himself a good sport. Always full of fun at a serious moment,
Bob's never without a gag. He has a stainless steel constitution,
and once he has made up his mind, no twenty-mule team could
change it. He's an all around good guy.
AlLCNDER, RUSSELL Russ
Love many, trust few,
And always paddle your own canoe.
In and out of A. H. S., Russ has innumerable friends as a result
of his almost constant good humor, merry quips, and ingenious
pranks. His indulgence in hunting and fishing does not interfere too
much with his scholarship, for his marks are, with few exceptions,
quite good. He intends to be a salesman Knot of Fuller Brushesl
and we all know his sparkling smile, quick wit, and persistence, will
bring him success.
AMEY, RUTH MARIE Ruthie
She who laughs last-doesn't get the joke.
Ruth, one of the silent partners of the senior class, is popular
among both her classmates and teachers. She is rather reserved,
but those who know her intimately flnd her sincere and loyal. Her
favorite pastimes are skating, cycling, and reading good books.
Some day we hope to see Ruth happily working her way to success
in the business world.
ANGSTADT, A. RICHARD Dick
Foot-loose and fancy free.
Dick is a quiet sort nf fellow, never guilty of over study.
Among his talents are mechanics and electricity. His favorite sport
is ice-skating. He plans to enlist in the Air Corps.
ANTHONY, CAROL B. Tony
Life is just a bowl of cherries-
Relax and enjoy it.
Carol is the brainstorm of the commercial department. She
came to us last year from Lehighton. Arguing seems to be her
specialty-trying to convince someone he is wrong, even though
he's right. After school you can Find her behind the counter in her
parents' store, the Lehigh Sweet Shop, making sundaes or playing
the iuke box. She takes particular interest in typing and shorthand,
in fact, she enioys life immensely, especially dancing and movies.
ln her pipe dreams she cherishes the hope thot she may be the
President's private secretary some day!
AFGAR, ELIZABETH L. Betty
Her mind is like a sundial, it records only pleasantness.
Betty is the blue-eyed lass who is quite serious at times, but
more often is just a happy-go-lucky girl. Betty's pleasing approach
has made her a favorite among her school acquaintances. Her
main obiective is to go far in the career of nursing, and with her
determination we know that she will do iust that.
ARTWOHL, SADIE Sid
Thou hast no faults, or l no faults can spyf

included in almost all of the social affairs and is a zealous follower
of all athletic events. Wherever Ted goes from school he will have
many friends, and a man with many friends is a wealthy man.
BALL, WILLARD E. Willie
When I feel like exercising,
I just lie down until the feeling goes away.
Blue-eyed friendly Willie attended a typical one-room country
school for eight years before he entered our Allentown schools.
He is a great rooter for football, baseball, swimming, and ice-
skating. He also likes dancing and music. Because Willie
thinks time spent in reading books is time wasted, and refrains from
readin as much as possible, he and his English teacher don't
always see eye-to-eye. His reaction to o ioke is an "l don't get it"
sort of smile. Willie is a devoted church worker. We wish him
success in his career in illustrating, and we hope some-day hefmay

BARRALL, RUTH ELIZABETH Tootie
What does she have that gets you?
To most people Tootie seems rather reserved, but those of us
who know her intimately find her a sincere, pleasant, even a mis-
chievous, companion. A typical school girl, she is gay, cheerful,
full of school spirit, with a yen for dancing and ice-skating, but she
does not like cold weather too much. Her good looks and ready
humor will help her to get along.
BARTELS, WILLIAM Bill
The world is full of sweet-williams.
In history there are many great Williams, such as William the
Conqueror and William Shakespeare. Now another great William
steps into view, William Milton Bartels, Esq. Always with a smile,
he has a ioke to tell whenever he is greeted by one of his many
friends. Bill is a lover of dogs, and some day hopes to own a kennel
of Irish setters.
BARTHOLOMEW, THOMAS LINCOLN Germ
The woman hater of the pattern shop.
An excellent pattern maker is Germ, at home, at school, and
at work. He starts school at 8 a. m. in the pattern shop, at 2:45 he
goes to work doing the same thing. Evenings he is usually busy at
home making patterns or tinkering with power tools. He is a hard
worker, finishing a iob he understands and enioys. But all work and
no play makes Germ a dull boy, so his spare time he spends in
hunting and fishing. Some day Germ will be a great pattern maker
in a big industrial plant.
BARTHOLOMEW, WALTER Walt
It is better to keep one's mouth shut and be a fool,
Than to open it and remove all doubt.
While Walt's chief interest is photography, he has also more
than his share of musical ability and plays the saxophone and
clarinet. A good sportsman, he enioys fishing, hiking, and archery.
Although he has many interests, he still has time for school work.
It is not surprising that Walt plans to enter college to study electrical
BAUDER, CAROL JUNE Carol
Believe one who has tried it.
Carol's unobtrusive personality always puts one at ease.
Although she does well in school work, she manages to find time
to cheer at all our games. Her present ambition is to go to college
and then to ioin the WAACS. Drawing is of second importance.

Life is but a span, l'Il every inch enioy.
Butch has ideas, determination, and ambition, but she isn't
grim about them. She insists you don't have to sit, head in hand,
because you have an idea. Although we sometimes think her
strangejdeas are the result of too many books, this girl, with her
sense of humor and her straight -forward personality, may surprise
us. Keenly sensitive to other people's feelings, Mary seldom makes
remarks to harm others. An ardent tennis fan, she is always on the
courts. Mary plans to become a designer.

BUTZ, MARTHA LOUISE Marty
Laughter in her eyes, freckles on her nose,
There is happiness where'er she goes.
A sunny smile, laughing brown eyes, and the wild spirit of
youth, Marty is a happy-go-lucky girl. A day without some devilish
prank is a day of gloom for her friends. She spends a good deal
of energy in tennis and ice-skating. In quieter moments she turns
to music-classical, please! She admits a decided partiality tor
shorthand, yet her marks prove that she ranks high in everything.
"Much play and little work keeps Martha happy" is her philosophy.

matics ond foreign languages, but dislikes home work in anything.
He's quite a sports fan, and a sandlot ball player. Bob expects
to pursue his studies at Albright College.

member of the swimming team, he has churned the waters to many
A. H. S. victories. He likes almost any sport, especially baseball,

work to go to a dance.
Her conversation was brief and her desire was to be silent.
We wonder whether Arlene is always as quiet as she appears,
those who know her say she is not. She likes dancing, sewing,

would rather ice-skate than do anything else-unless it would be
to listen to the music of famous swing bands.
Betty has definite ideas about clothes and fashions, and ex-

or in Williamsport. However, Dick's interests are not limited to
sports. He's conscientious about his schoolwork, likes airplanes and

LEIBENSPERGER, MADLYN Madlyn
So much to do, and so little done!
Madlyn, popular everywhere, shows a keen interest in sports,
goes to every football and basketball game, and is always ready

minute to do anything, yet despite all this, she accomplishes things.
Madlyn is one of the favored few who combines having a good
time and excelling at her school work. A higher education is in
store for her.

local theatres. Besides being a swing-record enthusiast, he is a
triple-threat table-tennis addict. This rather personable chap dis-
plays sportsmanship and goood judgment at home, in school, and
on the street. Friendliness, thrift, and humor are the words for this
up-and-coming young man. Looking forward to the career of a
movie proiectionist, he is even now known as a movie fiend.

With Sam a man's word is as good as gold, for he believes that if
you trust a man, sooner or later he will come to trust you. Although
Sam cannot play any instrument, he loves good music, whether it
be modem swing or his preferred classics. Sam is ocacsionolly

roller and ice skating, and spends a great many of his nights danc-
ing. Trouble seems to be Schnee's middle name, because no matter
what he does, it is always, he says, "something wrong." ln June
he is looking forward to going to the Navy to take up his trade
there. We are sure he will succeed, and wish him good luck.

VITALOS, EDWARD Sticks
Do not fear: there is glory enough for alll
Eddie is a good friend. Some of his favorite sports are hunting,
fishing, skating, trapping, and swimming. Eddie is tall, lanky, and
handsome. They always call him Sticks because he is about 6' 4"
and played basketball for the the St. John's C. C. C. He gets up
an hour or so early to go hunting in the flelds with his dog Sal,
and rarely comes home without game in the pouch. He is rather
amiable and quiet in school, but when his temper is aroused, it is
time to soothe him and to heal his wounds.
VOGEL, ROBERT H Bob
Better to suffer and to die than lose one shade of my character.
Robert is a fellow with a pleasing personality and a grand

best he can, no matter what it is. He does not believe in laughing
at others' mistakes or embarrassing them. Robert believes in
having a good time at the proper places. His diversions are ice-
skating and photography. He also has a flne voice and more than
ordinary acting ability. Robert wants to be a doctor, and his en-
thusiasm will make him a good one. We wish him the best of luck.

With her bright smile and her happy laugh, Rosie's a cheering
gal to have around. Commercial studies keep her more than busy,
but she's never too busy to give time to loyal and devoted friends.
With a flair for art, she mischievously decorates her belongings
with iounty figures, much like herself. Her bubbling personality,
ambition, and reliability should insure the success we wish her-
and that's a lot!
YURCOVIC, MARGARET IRENE Margie
A daughter of the gods, divinely tall,
And most divinely fair.
Here is a miss whose pleasing personality has won her scores
of friends. With strangers Margie is quiet and shy, with her
friends, mischievous and gay. Margie is a good student, and really
works at her studies. She is interested in becoming a private steno-
grapher, but give her a marimba and she can go to town.

YURICK, JOSEPH Joe
I use my own mind, and take good advice from others.
.loe is always willing to be friendly with whomever he meets.
There is a time and place for everything, is his motto. He is depend-
able and ambitious, and set in his mind.
YURICK, KATHRYN Kitten
A lovely being, scarcely formed or moulded,
A rose with all its sweetest leaves yet folded.
Kathryn really needs no introduction. You've seen her strutting
around the High School. She enioys dancing, and is one of the
high stepping maiorettes. Her brain works iust as fast as the baton
she spins so skillfully. Kathryn can make anyone happy. She's
everybody's friend, and one of the few gifted with beauty and

ZABOY, HELENE Speedy
Sensitive, swift to resent, but as swift in atoning for error.
A remarkable sense of humor and a magnetic smile distinguish
Speedy. This pretty girl enioys singing, dancing, and painting, and
is an ardent rooter at basketball and football games. Being
artistically inclined, Speedy's success in photography is assured.

ZAWEDIUK, ANNA Ann
- A cheerful companion is worth more than fine gold.
A happy, lovable girl, always willing to help out, is Little Ann.
Dancing and swimming are her usual ways of spending her leisure
time. Her ambition is to be a telephone operator or a salesperson
in a large department store.

ZIEGLER, RICHARD Zeke
A wolf doth grin before he barketh.
Zeke is full of fun, and loves always to be in the thick of an
argument. He says he's shy, and his frequent blushes substantiate
his assertion. Much as he enioys baseball and football, he likes
archery better. Zeke does not care for school too much, but when
he's away from school for any length of time he "misses it." His
favorite subiect is algebra, and his favorite companion his dog,
Jiggs. Zeke likes the United States Novygsays Navy blue is his
favorite color. Here's luck in your life on the ocean wave.
ZILLIG, CHESTER Chet
He is a fine, a safe and discreet man.
Chester moves quietly about his business, in a friendly fashion,
not saying too much, but when he talks people listen. He gets
around too, but there's no boasting about it. Prod a little, you'Il
find he has visited several of the big camps, wherever his father
has happened to be. Coax a little, he'Il tell you how his mother
visiting at the camp, went in and baked a chocolate cake for some
of the soldiers, or about his father's letters from North Africa. A
pretty knowledgeable fellow is Chester, but he'Il wait for you to
ask before he tells. Chet worked with the Signal Corps in New
York last summer, and knows some of the Intelligence service from
the inside, but again he knows howto hold his tongue. An intelligent,
delightfully companionable and discreet person, Chester can be
trusted by his friends and by his country.

ZIMMERMAN, JOHN RICHARD
Vixi et quem dederat cursum fortuna peregi.
I have lived and have finished the course which fortune assigned me.
This bright boy says he likes to sleep,
But his recitations make teachers weep lwith ioyl.
Of all the guys that you may meet,
Here's one whose work iust can't be beat.
A horse-back rider he tries to be,
And reading-"lt's an art," says he.
And he's to be an engineer,
He'Il be a grand one, never fear.

ZIMMERMAN, ALLEN A. Al
Quiet? Under water.
AI, at his tender age, possesses the rare ability to give Hnancial
advice. His favorite way of spending leisure hours is working in
his radio laboratory or reading the Hnancial reports in the morning
papers. He expects to take up flnance at Muhlenberg, and to com-
plete his education at Lehigh. Don't be surprised if you find him
on Wall Street some day.
ELI, CALVIN Eli
Diligence is the root of success.
Eli, a member of the pattern shop, is a likeable fellow. He is
about flve feet five, dark haired and dark-eyed, and has a host
of friends, especially girls. In Eli's spare time he will amuse himself
by hunting and fishing, though sometimes he turns to roller skating.
ln shop, if Eli isn't singing or humming, he will probably be telling
you tales of his hunting and fishing experiences.

0ur Fellow Graduates
The Comus, speaking not only for the class of 1943, but for the school and the adminis-
tration, here pays tribute to the teachers who are this year retiring from their active work
as members of the faculty. The long and constant respect that the Allentown High School
has enioyed and maintained among the schools of Pennsylvania is due to the capable and
devoted service of its teachers. To the men and women who are stepping out this year the
school wishes a long and happy period of opportunity to enioy both the leisure and the
chance for perhaps a more varied activity than time has heretofore allowed them.
lt is with affectionate and respectful appreciation of the quality and the spirit of their
efforts on behalf of the thousands of young people in Allentown that the school, and this
class, here pays them tribute, and it is a pleasant thing to know that as we go about the
town, we shall still be meeting and greeting these friends of our school days.

The alarm clock sounded, and down the hall
A light went on, and Mother's call
Reminded us 'twas time for school,
So hurry up, no time to fool.
Reluctantly we left our beds,
Where tired, dreamy, sleepy heads
Had rested'--and dressed slowly now,
Had to dress before hot chow.
With Mother's coaxing we left at last
And grabbed our books-Anot walking fast
To get the usual trolley car.
We groaned and moaned--it wasn't far.
We went to classfwe had our lunch,
Sat with the gang, all in a bunch,
And talked about the latest swing
And other unimportant things,
And back to classereluctantly,
But cheeriofvto a quarter to three.
But today it was a different day,
Tho the sun was shining, things seemed gray,
We left the paper on the chair
And didn't bother, iust didn't care.
Today was differentfyesrfa different day
ln every manner and sort of way.
We walked the steps of A. H. S.,
But now more slowlyffand I guess f
We never noticed much before
The columns and the great main door,
Continued on next page
Page Two Hundred and Twenty-five
But today we paused and iust took stock,
And gazed above at the old school clock.
The same things there as years before,
But somehow differentfand the doorff
We pushed it open and went to class
While old familiar faces passed,
And students with their Comus came,
Asking us to sign our name.
We went to assembly, to our old seat
And rose intently on the first beat,
And there it wasfwe wished to cheer
To hear our Alma Mater dear.
Today was differentfthe words meant more
Than they had ever meant before,
And tho we tried in vain to cheer,
Our voices melted-a trickling tear
Betrayed the love we held so near
For our school song and what it held dear.
Today was different-our last day,
To roam the halls our time away.
No more assembly, no more lunch,
No more gathering in a bunch
ln the old familiar halls,
Answering other classmates' calls.
The time was ours, we could delay,
Because today was a different day.
And as we roam the halls of life,
There's something we will all confess,-
We'll never forget the memories
We shared at A. H. S.

History of the Class of 1944
The Class of 1944 came to A. H. S. on September 1941, with a splendid reputation.
They immediately placed some of their members on the athletic teams, in the interclass
play, and on the rosters of various clubs. The Class of '44 lost little time in getting started.
As iuniors they were active in all phases of school life. They represented their class
in nearly every club and team, and they made a fine showing in the War Bond, Red
Cross, and United Appeal Campaigns.
After the thrilling Bethlehem football game, they along with seniors and sophomores
turned their attention toward the presentation of their first dance, The Junior Prom.
Held on Thanksgiving Day instead of the day after as had always been the custom,
the Prom was a decided hit. and the Junior Class reioiced in a sensational success and
realized a good profit. After the Christmas holidays, the Class produced a play,
One Mad Night, unique because of its varied characterization of the inmates of a mad
house. That play was another success for the Class of 1944.
As Juniors, the class was affected by the changes in school routine brought about by
the war. Because the Army requested that high school boys who would enter the armed
forces at the end of the school year be given a more intensive physical education program,
iunior boys gave up their two weekly periods of gymnasium to the older fellows.
Some iuniors are already in the service, more are preparing to go. The iunior class
is proud of them. The Allentown High School, will, we hope have reason to be proud
of its class of 1944.

History of the Class of 1945
There is an old Chinese proverb that says, "Hunger is cured by food, ignorance by
study." The wartime dawn of September 8, 1942 found some thousand sophomores trudg-
ing up the stairways of our High School to satisfy that second hunger, and lunch-time
found them rushing down again to satisfy the first hunger. A goodly number lost no time
in making apparent their status as sophomores as, in their innocent ignorance, they struggled
through iammed cafeteria lines, precariously balancing a tray upon one hand and a
newly acquired pile of books on the other. Nevertheless, this first class to enter the Allen-
town High School during World War ll was not all thumbs, as they soon proved.
lt wasn't long before sophomores were found to be holding important positions on the
A. H. S. football, basketball, and swimming teams. When the clubs and societies of the
school began functioning, sophomores were eager to ioin. As the year went on, they dis-
played additional talents, appearing on the stage in the auditorium and contributing
to the Canary and Blue.
Upperclassmen found the sophs to be iust another class. There was nothing very spec-
tacular or even amusing about them, except that "they get smaller every year." Con-
sequently, it was with a great deal of surprise, yes, and ioy, that the '45'ers noticed
that only a few cries of "silly sophomores" were aimed at them.
Sophomores, along with the iuniors, gave up their precious two periods of physical
education each week to the seniors. The price rise in the cafeteria hits sophomores
particularly hard, for they have a considerably longer time to eat in the cafeteria.
However, all sophomores are bending every effort to see to it that the cause of this rise
in prices is eliminated long before their graduation.
D-- Tun. Hum-Invl and Twnntv.ninlst
Canary and Blue Staff
RUTH WHlTENlGHTf-Editor. Although she has a vigorous obiective style, Ruth prefers
to create beauty for the sheer beauty of expression. Her work is smooth and finished,
with a professional touch. She feels that writing is a purely personal matter, dictated only
by mood and ability. A bit reserved, she can nevertheless win friends and influence people.
ELIZABETH TOWNLEY -Associate Editor. Betsy, she of the charming manner and
mischievous green eyes, is a precise grammarian and a dependable worker. Elizabeth
was trained in English schools up to her high school days. Her work has an assured quality,
styled simply but surely. She is a thorough scholar, and persistent in her efforts.
GEORGE STAVRIDIS - An up-and-coming lad who knows all, sees all, and hears all.
Dynamic and dapper, George is one boy who knows what he wants and how to get it.
He may stumble occasionally, but his recovery is always witty and fast. Even though he is
enlisted in the Marine Corps Reserve, he will still be one grand newspaper man.
BETTE KNAUER f-The feminine half of the "Do's and Don'ts for Dates" team. Quiet
and correct, she is the very picture of the right thing to do. She is an accomplished musician
and a good student.
WILLIAM HILLEGASSffThe absentee member of the staff, William entered Muhlen-
berg College at the beginning of the second semester, and has been doing his share of
"Do's and Dont's" from the campus. At High School he was the typical bright-eyed
young-man-about-school, and he is iust as much on the beam at college. After all, a
student of his caliber is the answer to a teacher's prayer.
ESTHER PERIN Y Energetic Esther, precocious Perin. She turns out stories in the modern
manner, poems which reflect a maturity not perceptible on the surface, and she writes
exchanges with iust the right touch. She can work, if she wants to, but you must make her
want to f- and that's her whole story.
JEANNE MARIE DOERN -f-Vivacious Jeanne is one of the props of the literary depart-
ment. Her work has that quirk of originality that makes even the most apathetic reader
sit up. Active and social, in touch with student opinion, Jeanne always has ready an up-
to-the-minute suggestion. She is withal a thinker, with definite, although sometimes im-
SPURGEON DUNBAR ' That dreamy look and rather hesitant manner really means
that in reality Suprge is out on the road with his dog, thumbin' his way to somewhere,
forgetful of drab common-places. The wanderlust is in his eyes. His poems have a dreamy
quality, his stories have plots. In them he isn't a boy who might be called dreamy but
one who lives in a world that is very real.
BRIGITTE UHLIG Competent, wholesome, an American school girl down to the last
hair of her curly head, Brigitte is thoroughly versed in all phases of writing from news to
sonnets. She attended the Institute at Northwestern, under the Medill School of Journalism,
and was associate editor of the "Clamo" publication of the Clayton High School, Clayton,
Missouri, from which she came this year.
PETER KALANDIAK-Conscientious, hard-working able Pete is one of the valuable
men at High School and on the Canary. His sports style is snappy, his zest and diligence
is characteristic of all his work. Pete has a "terrific eye for color"-was one of the artists
who decorated the War Scrap Book-and a nimble wit, both necessary to creative art.
WALTER PETRISKEY-Another thorough sports writer, whose straight news style is
strictly straight, with a definite precision. A typical regular fellow, Walter is usually
quiet and a trifle taciturn, but it is always Walter who sees the thing to do that the other
AMONG THE UNDERCLASSMEN
ROBERT FREDERICK and JAMES FRANCIS are two out-of-doorsmen who have had
extensive hunting, fishing, and camping experience. James writes occasional verse, while
Robert sticks to factual writing, both have enlightened and entertained the school.

THE CANARY AND BLUE STAFF
MARY PATRICIA KING-Dramatic, with a certain verve, and 0 Celtic sense of beauty,
good at feature writing and handling "different" ideas. When Pat moved to Reading
with her family in early Spring, the Canary lost a valuable member of the staff.
HORACE MCCREADY-Another budding young man about school, likes what he likes,
"and his likes go everywhere." Keen, observant, willing and enthusiastic, he handles
straight news well, and usually does an interesting feature angle besides.

THE CANARY AND BLUE STAFF
JUDY RUHE Rather scholarly, Judy is best at either news or definite assignments.
Well-read, she has a rich general background, and shows promise of action. When she
comes into more active contribution, the school will know her better.
RICHARD SNELLING f Dick has done several unusual pieces of work. He still needs a
bit of polishing, with an emphasis on things which require imagination and creative ability
rather than a straight obiective approach.
Page Two Hundred and Thirty-one
"Merry" Mary Jean GriderfEditor-in-Chief of the Comus and a real leader in
many other activities, Mary Jean is an active and indispensable part of the Class of '43.
She writes high school news for the Morning Call, and that tells you something.
"Jiving" June Brelsfordff-June has really worked hard on such an essential part of
the year book as the Class Calendar. Much credit is due to June on her transcribed diary
on page 219.
"Busy" Betsy Fenstermacher--lFeaturesl When you see Betsy achieve a far-away
look in her eyes, and start to chew on the end of her pencil, then you know she is about to
come forth with a brainstorm. Most of Betsy's brainstorms are things that are sure to be
lots of fun, but when she directs her thoughts in the channels of Comus material, it cannot be
denied that Betsy's drive is really hitting home.
"Gabby" John GabelliniflFeaturesi An unusual sense of color and consistency makes
Gabby a valuable man to have around for artistic arrangement of pictures and material.
Caryl Ann "Flash" Gordin'--lAssociatel Always willing to help out, Caryl is one who
can be depended on. She may need a little backing to get started, but when Caryl
decides she will do something, she really lives up to her nick-name. Flash! and another
burdensome iob is done successfully.
"Brainy" Bill Hillegass--lBusinessl Whenever a deal comes up involving the ladies,
Bill is the man who owns the kid gloves to handle it. Manners are not all Bill is interested
in, however, his scholastic record and his leadership among the fellows, as well as his
fair record among the college men at Muhlenberg, prove that.
"Pee-Wee" Harold JonesflBusinessi Contributes the steadying influence to the live-
wire business department. Quiet, and with an uncommon amount of common sense, Pee-
Wee keeps all business transactions on good old terra firma.
"Plugging" Pete Kalandiakff-flSportsi The hustler of the staff and always on the go.
Whether it's an inter-class play, a year book or a scrap-book, Pete's right in there pitching.
"Flying" Phyllis Kratzffllieaturesi The whizz of the features department. Phil puts a
certain touch to everything she does, and when she and Betsy Fenstermacher get their
heads together-watch out!
"Bobby" Robert Long -fflBusinessi Quiet and pleasingly unassuming, Bobby goes
about his work in a systematic manner that spells efficiency.
"Lippy" Leroy Newman flFeaturesi Quick on the trigger and raring to go -that's
the Lip Newman. With a shrewd business sense and a smooth-flowing line, a better man
for this department is simply not to be had.
"Timid" Theresa Nikischer-flAssociatei Theresa is one of those girls who believes in
the rule, "Silence is golden." She follows this adage steadfastly, too, except when an
original idea is needed. When that time comes, Theresa knows iust where to find the
pennies from heaven. She has been a vital part of the Comus staff.
"Marvelous" Marvin Sachs-lAssociatei ln his writing, living, and work, Marv is
perfection itself. A quick sense of humor offsets any overly sober leanings he may have.
"Sharpey" Sherman SassflBusinessi Sharp and brim full of ideas for the obtaining
of the financial backing so vital to the publication of a year book, Sherman fits into the
business angles of the publication as if he were born to them.
"Lively" Leanna Schaffer-llfeaturesi Leanna is one of the associate feature editors
and a good one at that. She has the happy faculty of being able to dash off a poem
or an article behind any large book in any class, and at the same time to remain on the
best of terms with her teachers and schoolmates.
Page Two Hundred and Thirty-two
THE Colvlus STAFF
"Natural" Ned Schantz-fiSportsl Ned's a natural all right, and whether it's smashing
across the deciding acesgand he's smashed across plenty-or getting in that physics
experiment, Ned's the lad to do it.
George Stavridis-"'P. G."-lSportsl One of the most important writing posts on
the Canary and Comus staffs was held by this small but mighty dark-haired Greek. As
soon as "P. G." began writing for the Morning Call, the staff knew that they had a corker
of o writer.
Page Two Hundred and Thirty-three
THE Comus STAFF
"British" Betsy Townley-lAssociatel Betsy has been one of us for three yea rs, but since
her firstappearance among the crowd she has been steadily gaining friends and admirers.
Her colleagues on the Comus Staff appreciate her ability and versatility, and the phrase
is echoed by all, "lf something needs doing, Betsy's the one who can do it."
"Ruddy" Ruth Whitenight-lAssociatel ln addition to her many duties as editor of the
Canary and Blue, Ruth has contributed much time to the Comus. Everyone likes to read
Ruth's philosophy. Her mind is something to be dreamed of by the rest of us.

J. BIRNEY CRUM
Throughout the state, A. H. S. basketball, football, and baseball teams are known
for their aggressive heads-up ball playing.
Behind the boys out there on the field is one man who has spent long tedious hours
instilling in them not only the fundamentals of the game, but the competitive spirit vital
to all great teams.
The man behind the A. H. S. teams is J. Birney Crum, the youthful mentor of baseball,
basketball, and football.
To local sports fans he is best known as the man who gave Allentown its first state
championship basketball quintet, and as the coach who brought home a Big Fifteen Con-
ference title two years ago.
Maythe coming years see even more championships and more honors come to J.
Birney Crum and his hard-driving clean-hitting teams.

.g mondfr, Qylzere is god?
And when the battle is won,
And the conquerors have said
What may be done
We'll think of all who died
And why they died.
Then we will know that-
Victor or loserfnone will win,
For then all will be gone-
And life must start anew
To build up all that's lost.
And when again life's built anew
And all is as it should be,
Who knows, but that there'll be more wars,
And then again all will be gone.
What price for life?
My mind reels.
I think of all these things.
l wonder, Where is God?-
Creator of mankind-
Father of iustice.
Where is he to let such things come to pass,
That man should kill man?
And though I wish it were the fault of God,
l know it is the fault of man,
Of man who cannot help but by his greed
For man is man,
And such must always be.

Here they are, all nine of them!
In other words, these are "Victory Barkers," not barking for victory in Casablanca,
not barking forvictory in the Aleutians, not barking for victory in the Solomons, but, bark-
ing for victory for A. H. S.
Seniors all, they are going away, maybe some to the Army, some to the Navy,
some to the Marines, some to higher places of learning, some to war production, and,
who knows, maybe some to the kitchen. But wherever they go, we know that just as their
magnetism spurred the crowds on the football field and the basketball floor to cheer the
Canary and Blue on to victory, so their cheers will ring loud and clear until the whole world
is cheering for a victory won.
Yes, they've kept 'em cheering, they've kept 'em singing, they've always had the
situation well in hand.

1942 Football Season
Showing great deception and power, Allentown's flashy grid aggregation rolled
over WestHazleton High School by a 31 to O victory in the first tilt of the year. Allentown
tallies were garnered by Crampsey, Anderson, and Farmer, the latter galloping 35
yards to score.
Brilliant ground and aerial play enabled the Canaries to crush the Northampton
Koncrete Kids by a decisive 30-O score. Second and third stringers played most of the
game. Pay dirt territory was crossed by Anderson, Crampsey, Baranchok, Fullas, and
Allentown made it three straight with a l9-0 victory over a strong and highly rated
St. Clair eleven. The power of the Allentown forward wall proved too much for the elusive
and lateraling opponent. The speed and drive of the Allentown backs highlighted this
The only defeat of the season was handed to Allentown by a never-say-die Hazle-
ton squad. Pushed all over the field by the powerful Canaries, Hazleton finally won by
means of a 57-yard pass from Degatis to Paternaster. The Canaries outplayed Hazleton
from the start, but could never cross the double line.
Page Two Hundred and Forty-three
1942 Football Season
Rebounding from their Hazleton defeat, the Canaries bowled over with surprising
swiftness a far-from-weak Reading High School team. Russ Strait was the big gun for the
Allentonians, scoring 18 of the 35 points registered by the Canaries. Demeter and
Baranchok scored the other two touchdowns. Walt Zieger highlighted the tussle by kicking
five straight placements.
Allentown and Phillipsburg battled to a scoreless draw on a muddy, rainsoaked
gridiron. Neither team could get on the march, and the game, as a whole, consisted of a
kicking duel between Dick Anderson and Dragotta of P-burg. ln the last few seconds of
play, Walt Zieger attempted an Allentown field goal from the 20-yard line, but with no
Allentown's power was at its best as the Canaries overwhelmed Pottsville by a
26-0 triumph. Anderson, Steckel, and Hartman accounted for the team's touchdowns, and
Pete Sukeena tallied a safety when he blocked a Pottsville punt and recovered it in the
STRONG VINCENT lEriel
Combining fancy passing and deceptive running plays, Allentown romped to a 20-0
victory over Erie Strong Vincent. Dick Keen sparkled as he intercepted an Erie pass and
galloped 64 yards to score. Anderson and Holz each tallied a touchdown, and Walt
Zieger kicked a placement.
Plunging Dick Anderson and speedy John Baranchok propelled the Canaries to a
13-6 victory over Easton. Playing an aggressive game, the Canaries scored once in the
second period with Anderson lugging the ball, and then again in the last period with
John Baranchok turning the trick.
A strong, previously undefeated Scranton eleven succumbed to the charging Canaries
by a 20-0 score. Crampsey, Whitner, and Diefenderfer helped the Allentown cause by
scoring 6-pointers, and Walt Zieger converted two placement kicks.
lt looked black indeed for the Allentown cause when Bethlehem's Bill Krasnai crossed
the Canary goal-line and then converted with iust three minutes of the game gone. But
with four seconds of playing time remaining, Russ Strait chucked a bullet pass to Leo
Crampsey,waiting in the end zone, to put the score at 7 to 6. Walt Zieger then entered
the game and cool as ice, booted the ball between the uprights for the most important
point. Final score, Bethlehem-7, Allentown-7.

Review of 1942-43 Basketball Season
That confidence, that determination, that fighting spirit which has dominated Allentown
High basketball teams for years and years was lacking this season, and as a result, the
court campaign may be termed a fairly good one as compared to other seasons. Year in
and year out, Allentown fans eagerly anticipated playoff games, and the Canaries won
league and district titles and even a State Championship in 1935. Allentown teams were
always in the thick of the battle for honors, but this season was different, and here's
hoping it will be better next year. The team engaged in 24 contests, won l9 games and
lost 5 games. Our team won the city championship over Central Catholic by taking
two out of three games.
Willie Stellar, Willie Piff, Arpod Milkovics, Earl Nattress, Bill Hushkek, Ken Moyer
and Joe O'Keefe put their talents together to defeat Allentown in the curtain raiser,
53 to 49. Bill Hushkek led the scoring with 25 points for the Alumni.
Allentown High checked in with its first victory of the season as they turned back
Cliff Hartman's Emmaus five by a 60 to 22 count. The Green and Gold zone defense
failed to stop the onrushing Canary offense which was paced by Moon Haney, who
scored l7 points.
A tall, rangy P-burg quintet battled tooth and nail with the Canaries for three
periods, but Allentown finally stepped up their tempo of play and won out in the fourth
frame with a scoring splurge which sank the Garnet, 46 to 30.
Coach Crum's crew made it three in a row as they swamped the Troians from South
Whitehall, 56 to 24. The Canaries functioned smoothly throughout and continually piled
up a larger advantage as the periods rolled on. Krainiak paced the Allentown attack
with ll points.
Page Two Hundred and Forty-six
Review of 1942-43 Basketball Season
Two flowering East Penn League basketball rivals provided action aplenty in the
opening league contest. After four periods of torrid ball playing, Joe Preletz's Red
and Blue Hurricane conquered the Canaries 38 to 32. Al Saemmer tallied 14 points to
lead the Liberty Boys.
Tuning up for the Hazleton contest, Allentown spurted in the last stanza after a nip
and tuck battle with Palmerton's Blue Bombers to win a 44 to 34 decision. Haney and
Krainiak registered 12 and 10 points to lead the Canary attack.
Allentown flashed one of its best defensive games of the season as they played
heads-up basketball and turned the tables on Hughie McGeehan's Mountainers, 29
to 28, in a thrilling tussle before 2,500 fans. The two teams reverted to a great defensive
battle to hold back each others scoring machines.
Tamaqua almost pulled oneof the league's maior surprises when they led Allentown
for three periods, but the Canaries turned one their scoring eyes to emerge finally with a
well deserved 58 to 50 victory. R. Jones paced both teams with 15 markers.
Traveling up to Pottsville, Allentown's downtrodden Canaries bumped into a fast
breaking Pottsville quintet and fell before the Maroons by a 39 to 32 count. Pottsville
simply outran and outplayed the Canaries, who were behind the greater portion of the
ln a fast-moving, exciting contest, Easton's Red Rovers piled up an early advantage
and then stopped cold an Allentown rally in the waning moments to topple the home forces,
31 to 35, thereby handing the Canaries their fourth league loss this second half.
The Garnet and Gray cagemen handed Allentown their third consecutive defeat as
they played steady, deliberate ball to win in the Lafayette College gym, 44 to 41. The
game was nip and tuck throughout, but Phillipsburg out-scored the Canaries, 10 to 7 in
the final stanza to win the battle.
Playing an independent post season contest for the benefit of the American Legion,
Allentown was forced into an extra period to defeat Palmerton's Blue Bombers 48 to 47,
and broke their three game losing streak. Moon Haney's foul conversion with 8 seconds
remaining enabled the Canaries to triumph.
Reading's Red Knights fell for the second time before the Canaries by the score of
45 to 33. The game was close for three periods as Allentown led not more than three
points at the end of the quarters. The Canaries displayed their best attack in recent
games in turning back Reading decisively.
Central Catholic visited Allentown in the opening of the best two-out-of-three series
and lost the initial contest which was nip and tuck for three periods, but Allentown turned
loose once again in the fourth frame to win a 38 to 33 decision.
Page Two Hundred and Forty-seven
Review of 1942-43 Basketball Season
Allentown's Canaries lowered the curtain on their 1942-43 basketball season with a
glorious 40 to 31 victory over Leo Crowe's Vikings at Rockne Hall and thereby won the
city basketball championship. Allentown employed a successful zone defense which had
the Vikings stumped, and they were unable to solve it till late in the game. The Canaries
meanwhile handled the ball smoothly and worked plays consistently. George Krainiak
tallied 16 points to lead Allentown.
Last season's title holders trailed Allentown for three periods and almost pulled a
victory from defeat as they rallied in the fourth frame to throw a score into the Canary
five, but Haney's basket clinched the game, 39 to 36 for Allentown's third East Penn
ln a fast moving battle marked by good teamwork and accurate shooting, Allentown
held the lead throughout the heated encounter to defeat Easton's Red Rovers, 59 to 46,
thereby finishing in second place in the East Penn loop race.
Two quick baskets by Berger and Melinchok in the last 40 seconds of the game
broke a 30 to 30 deadlock and gave Allentown a brilliant 34 to 30 decision over the
Red Knights in a thrill-packed contest in the Palestra. Berger, with 11 points, led the
home team assualt.
Determined to win the second half title, the Canaries' hopes were cracked wide
open when Bethlehem invaded the Palestra and registered a close 33 to 32 thriller,
Allentown's inaccuracy from the foul line proved to be fatal in their drive for league su-
premacy. Gasdaska chucked in 18 points for the winners.
Hazleton handed Allentown its second setback within a week as they played a fast
moving ball game marked by great defensive play, to win 36 to 22. The Canaries played
ragged ball, inaccurate shooting and sloppy passing virtually lost them second half
honors. Al DeGatis took scoring honors with 14 points.
Bill Anderson's undefeated Ardmore Aces and state champions poured it on from the
beginning, and out played the Canaries from start to finish to gain an easy 45 to 31
triumph. The fast passing and the beautifully set plays of the Lower Merion five proved
to be superior in the contest.
Starting slow, but gradually quickening their pace, Allentown conquered the Blue
Raiders 44 to 24, to break a three game losing streak. The win was the first in the second
half of the season.

With the loss of such key men as Mike Chomik, George Steckel, Herman Jackson,
Jack Soler and Stan Dziedzie, Coach Paul Clymer was in doubt as to his chances for a
successful track season for l943. But in pre-season performances, a fine flock of iuniors
and sophomores came up and along with the seniors, bolstered the team a great deal.
Back from last year ore Russ Strait, Gene Diefenderfer, Mike Elchook, and Bob Kline.
Coach Clymer expects these veterans to carry the burden this year. At this writing, the
team has engaged in two meets and has won twice. The Canary trackmen defeated

1942-43 Swimming Season
Because of transportation difficulties, it was necessary for Coach Dave Hackett to
cut down the number of swimming events to almost half of what they have been in previous
years. The Allentown mermen engaged in five meets, winning two and losing three. Blair,
Mercerburg and Coatesville were able to sink the Canaries while Reading fell twice to
Making its seasonal debut, Allentown's swimmers were turned back by a Blair
Academy team by a close 34 to 32 count. Allentown won five first place positions to Blair's
three, but the Academy won out when they placed men in the second and third slots.
Allentown lost their second straight dual meet when a superior Coatesville High
aggregation defeated the Canaries to score.
The Canary mermen won their first victory of the season as they easily defeated the
Red Knights of Reading. Joe Kirby and Bernie Wilgruber highlighted the meet with
Mercersburg Academy proved to be more than a match for Allentown as they cop-
ped six first places, five seconds and one third to humble Coach Hackett's swimmers,
53 to 'l3. Bill Schmidt, formerly of York, easily defeated Joe Kirby and established a new
pool record for the lOO yard breaststroke. Joe Kirby established a new Allentown
school record as he churned the distance in one minute, ten and three tenth seconds.
Joe Kirby, Allen Smith, and Bernard Wilgruber sparkled in their respective events
as Allentown closed the season with a 37 to 29 victory over Reading at Reading. Cor-
pousis, Reading star, captured the 40 yard free style and the lOO yard free style.

Girls' Gym Club
The Girls' Gym Club, with a membership of thirty, under the direction of Miss Boyer,
has had a most successful year. In spite of the fact that no exhibition could be put on this
year, the girls have practiced twice a week, without grumbling. They contributed no small
part to the Physical Fitness Program, June 2, 1943, and gave a most enlightening and
entertaining exhibition for the Business and Professional Women's Club.
Seven senior girls were awarded medals for their skillful gymnastic work, and in
spite of not having enioyed the usual exhibition, are urging other girls to ioin, for the benefit
and the pleasure they will derive from the experience and training.

Amidst the clouds unfold.

Among the brooks and streams,
All these natural glories,
Are like mystifying dreams.
The trees in all their beauty stand
Against the colored sky,
Their branches reaching outward,

Gives way to a full moon,
And twinkling stars, maiestically,
Proclaim that night is soon.

Allentown High School Band
The Allentown High School Band has enioyed another successful year of pageantry
under the lights of the Jack Cofllield Stadium. Although the band has been prevented
from attending out of town games this year, it has been recognized as one of the best
high school bands in Eastern Pennsylvania. Besides entertaining the crowds at basketball
games, the band had the opportunity to take part in the celebration of Armistice Day
as well as to help in the Community Chest Drive. Under the capable supervision of Alburtis
L. Meyers, the band has presented a high-lighted schedule of concerts.
The Drum and Bugle Corps has been an addition this year, and it has added both
beauty and attraction to the scene.
We are all acquainted with the twelve Maiorettes whose snappy drills have caught
many an eye in the audience. They have also made an attractive and colorful appearance
in all the parades and drills, under the leadership of Connie Walters. The two tumblers
have done their big bit to make the drills more entertaining, in fact, we are very proud
of our band and all its members.

This year, as the curtain was raised, a chorus of l25 girls complete with soloist and
piano accompanist held an audience spellbound by the expert rendition of Nevin's
Land of Heart's Desire. Guest soloist, Alfred Barto, is an alumnus of A. H. S., and one of
our own seniors, Florence Dorward, played the piano.
The Girls' Chorus has become famous for its beautiful annual concerts, climaxing
many months of rigid training and strenuous rehearsals. Dr. Warren F. Acker, sponsor
of the chorus, seems to have a bubbling amount of zest, energy, and patience.
Gowns or short dresses was the chief debate among the girls. And I don't think we
shall ever forget that "iazz session" while waiting for the photographer.
We shall always recall the chorus concert of January 2lst, l943, as
cessful and unforgettable.

On a late spring afternoon
A-tramping thru the fields I go:
To end my day l climb a hill,
And gaze upon God's earth below.
And as upon God's earth l gaze,
A thrill of beauty fills my soul,
Then-lending reverence to the scene,
l hear a church bell softly toll.
High above, the sun is setting,
Slowly sinking in the west.
Naught but earth and sky about me,
This is the place to dream and rest.
As daylight dorkens into night,
l say a prayer of thanks and praise
To One above I know will guide
Me safely thru life's tangled ways.

Orchids to Dr. Acker for his excellent coaching both as director and friend.
The A Cappella Choir
lt's 2:45 p. m.Ythe bell rings, and everyone makes a wild dash to his or her locker.
That is,-everyone except the members of that group known as the A cappella choir.
These students, with music under arm, trudge happily to room 222 where the enchanting
strains of Swing Low, Sweet Chariot or some other composition soon my be heard.
The Allentown High School A cappella choir is probably the leading choral organiza-
tion in the Lehigh Valley--and has given concerts for the United Appeal, Kiwanis Club,
Trinity Memorial Lutheran Church, Mountainville, and Salem Reformed Church in this city.
They sang over the radio, and during National Music Week appeared in the A. H. S,
Although rehearsals were strenuous, they were a lot of fun. lt seemed too bad that
the choir lacked tenors this year.

The A Cappella Choir
Remember the day you entered school?
The kids were unfriendly-sort of cool.
And then remember the friendship you had
With little Johnny, and another lad?
Remember the cramming you had to do
ln order to pass an exam or two?
Remember those hours in Study Hall
When you never looked at a book at all?
Remember the report cards, good and bad?
Remember the hours explaining to Dad?
Well, all that's over, you may say,
But you'll want it back again some day.
Three solid years of life and fun-
Three short years that seemed like one.
And now as each month looks toward June
We know these days have passed too soon.

The members of the Latin Club, more than half of whom are also members of the
Junior Classical League, sponsored by the American Classical League, "covenant to hand
on the torch of classical civilization in the modern world. They believe an acquaintance
with the civilization of Greece and Rome will help them understand and appraise this
world of today, which is indebted to ancient civilization in its government, laws, literature,
languages, and arts." Moreover, appreciation of the beautiful, and nobility of expression
are not only deeply comforting, but stabilizing in a period of unrest.
And so, with J. Warren Fritsch and Phillip Schmoyer as co-sponsors of the club, it is
apparent to the membership that the Roman is no longer Roamin', Latin isn't latent.

The German Club
The German Club is made up of all students having German and having attained an
average of at least eighty-five percent in this subject. The prime obiective of the German
Club is to learn more about the language, customs,and people of Germany, than one
learns in the class room.
The highlight of the events in which the German Club participated this year was the
ioint Christmas meeting held with the French Club. This was one of the few occasions
where the French and German languages were spoken under peaceful circumstances in
our modern world. Poems and stories about Christmas and the Christmas seasons and cele-
brations were read in both languages, translations of the story or poem followed the
reading. Various members of both clubs told of the customs of the Christmas Season,
carols were sung by both clubs, and all who attended seemed to enioy the entire program,
The German Club met every two weeks, alternating with business and entertainment
programs. During the program meetings, poems and stories were read in German:
folksongs were sung, and from time to time Mr. Allam, the sponsor, presented riddles and
questions. The club also continued its research program dealing with German and
Pennsylvania German folklore. Everyone was told to be on the look-out for German
calendars, almanacs, and pictures. "Before you throw it away, bring it to Mr. Allam",
was the watchword. All of the club members enioyed their association with the club
and were proud to be members.

Le Cercle Francais
A group of boys and girls, eager to know more about France and her people, gather
twice a month for Le Cercle Francais.
Strains of La Marseillaise bring thoughts of French social customs, folk songs, operas,
and memories of meetings conducted in French by the president, Geanne Marcy.
The French-German Christmas program is an old tradition, a strange combination
in these war days.
Mademoiselle Swope, of the Frech Department, is the sponsor of Le Cercle Francais,
and has done much to give inspiration to those who are eager to be fluent French speakers.
Those who graduate this year say aurevoir to pleasing and interesting programs of

Senior Mathematics Club
Just before the close of the first term, the Math Club was revived in A. H. S. but with
a different framework this time. There is a separate club for each class, each with its
own officers and meetings. The Senior Math Club has Mr. Neely as sponsor, and Mr.
Weinsheimer as an interested participant and often the lecturer. The development of a
further interest in mathematics is the prime aim of the organization. Those topics which
the clsss time does not allow to be discussed during class are often the bases of discussion
at the meetings. The members of the club have shown that they would like to know the
why and how of various formulae theories, instead of iust using them to solve problems.
Practical application is invariably the root of many controversial subiects. These mathe-
matical open forums, held every two weeks, have broadened the mathematical knowledge
of every member. lt is the sincere hope of the club that those that come after will continue
where we leave off. '

Junior Mathematics Club
This club was organized on January l4, l'-743, through the untiring eFForts of Mr.
Hartzell and Mr. Rentschler. Any pupil who is interested in mathematics can become a
member of this organization.
The chief purpose of this organization is to further the knowledge of the members
and to stimulate their interest in advanced mathematics.
The regular meetings are held on the first and third Wednesdays of each month.
Programs are arranged by the members and faculty advisers to carry out the purpose
of the organization.

Sophomore Mathematics Club
This past year saw the development, at A. H. S., of a mathematics club for sopho-
mores only. ln the latter part of the first semester, a nucleus of eleven members met with
Mr. Reichard and Mr. Dankel and organized. Presently, thirty-three budding mathema-
ticians were attending program meetings and learning something above the first year
algebra and plane geometry that they were studying in class.
As might be expected in these times, the topic of universal interest was mathematics
as applied to aviation, and accordingly, Mr. Earle H. Weinsheimer, who is teaching the
elements of aeronautics at A. H. S., was invited to deliver a lecture on the subiect. He did
so, most interestingly.
The second outside speaker for the year was Mr. R. R. Neely, one of the respected
instructors in mathematics at A. H. S. and in the Pennsylvania State College and Muhlen-
berg College extension courses. Mr. Neely's topic was the integration of the various
branches of mathematics. His lecture on May 5 was highly instructive and was delivered
in a most absorbing way.
What would be a club without an outing or two? The farewell picnic was a last
gesture of comradeship among the members as members of the sophomore mathematics
club, who will leave the club next year to ioin the iunior club. The sophomore club is in-
tended to be permanent, however. During the meeting of April 7, a constitution was ap-
proved which will be the organization basis for future sophomores.

The National Honor Society .
The beginning of every school term brings to the high school a newly organized
National Honor Society, one with new officers and new duties, but retaining the principles
of the past and the constant desire to be of service.
In these times of peril the group has done more for the school than in the past. Con-
ducting a clinic to help others and supplying messengers for the office were routine dutiesg
selling Defense Saving Stamps and acting as interpreters during the rationing registration
and doing many other special tasks as the need would arise have given further evidence
of their willingness to serve. The National Honor Society is constantly proving its worth to

Orotan Debating Society
Organized with the intention of furthering the comprehension of logic, providing
experience in debating, and encouraging general good fellowship, the Orotan Debating
Society is an important organization of the high school. Mr. Waller, the very able sponsor,
helps the group to organize its program.
The meeting is officially called to order by Jack Tuberty, president, and the minutes
are read by Richard Snelling with an occasional effort at wit. Of course Sam Missimer, as
treasurer, reminds the members of dues to be paid. The sophomores Y-Gomer Reese,
John Wilcox and Larry Milstead engage in arguments of their own since they know it is
futile to argue with iuniors and seniors. The iuniors H 'Sam Missimer, Vincent Peters, Richard
Snelling, and Edwin Pickard-not realizing the futility of arguing with such seniors as
Jack Tuberty, Bill Hillegas, and Don Markley, try to do the impossible, that is, to convince
a senior that he is wrong. With words exhausted, the meeting is adjourned.

Increasingly important in these days of war, when homes are being up-rooted and
the past forgotten in the maze of today, is the Historical Society, whose function it is to
preserve in the minds of the students the heritage of their native ground.
This year the Society has completed the color film, "Historic Allentown," which is a
permanent record of the spots of local historical significance. lt has added to its library
books of great value, which would not otherwise be available to the members, and it has
presented both its film and its library to the school.
The Society is a charter member of the Pennsylvania Federation of Junior Historians,
which was organized last year in Harrisburg, and in several capacities has become active
in the Federation. The Allentown Chapter chose the name for the New State publication,
the Junior Historian and played a prominent part in the meeting of the Federation which
took place April 30.
The Allentown High School Historical Society was organized in 1935 by its sponsor,
Melville J. Boyer, head of the Social Studies Department.

The Commercial Club is composed of Senior Commercial students who have attained
an average of 85 per cent in every subiect. Socials are held once a month at the homes of
the members, and business meetings are held every two weeks at school.
The purpose of the club is to create an interest in business problems and to prepare
the student for a business career. Through this club the school and the businessmen are
more closely united.
An annual alumni banquet and dance is held, whereby former and present day mem-
bers are able to discuss the present business situations.
Through the faithfulness of the otticers and the cooperation of the members, the club
has had another successful year.

During the first World War, work with younger girls and children was placed in a
new department known as Girl Reserves. They wanted to create a better understanding
among young people through fellowship and service.
Today, in the second World War, the Girl Reserves continue their important and suc-
cessful work. The girls like variety and have included in their program collecting keys
for the scrap drive, establishing a baby clinic, and making scrapbooks for soldiers.
Mid-winter and summer conferences keep the girls in touch with other cities. At con-
ferences they compare notes on club activities and learn to mix with strange groups.
Under the capable guidance of Marian L. Grider, the Girl Reserves will remain girls

Red Cross Council
The purpose of the Allentown High School Junior Red Cross Council is to uphold the
standards of the American Junior Red Cross and to contribute all possible service.
The Council is elected from representatives of each homeroom. lt consists of twenty-
three members: six sophomores, six iuniors, six seniors, one representative of the National
Honor Society, one representative of the Varsity A Club, and the presidents of each class,
This year the Junior Red Cross formed Standard First Aid Classes, collected games,
playing cards, and books for the service men as well as knitted sweaters and squares for
afghans. ln addition to this, a group of commercial girls were prepared as Staff Assistants,
to aid the school nurse or to help at the Red Cross Chapter House.
The council, which was organized under the guidance of Miss Struthers last year'
served as a pattern for similar groups organized this year in all schools of the county-
These councils exchange ideas through contributions to the Lehigh County Junior Red Cross
The second Allentown High Junior Red Cross Fair, which was held in March, proved to
be such a success that it will serve as a pattern for more events to be held in school. The
proceeds of this fair were turned over to the Red Cross.

The Student Pan-American League
Senores y Senoritas: The Student Pan American League was organized in the
Allentown High School in l942 and already has an active membership of 21 students
all interested in improving the relationship between South American countries and the
United States. This is being accomplished by corresponding with various school pupils
in the South American countries. The exchange of scrap books made by South American
pupils and members of our club will also help to promote a better understanding.
ln the club itself, time is devoted to making the scrap book previously mentioned,
discussing the interesting facts of these countries by means of a roll call of South American
countries, showing slides, and listening to speakers, selected because of their connection
with Latin American countries.
We consider this one of the most democratic organizations in the school because it
is run by and for the members.
The meetings although conducted informally, are orderly and all the material set
down by the Program Committee to be covered during the course of the meeting is
accomplished. The meetings are not all work, there is play as well, in that there is singing
of Latin American songs in Spanish and the playing of Spanish games.
We believe that the obiects of the League,which is a national organization,are being
fulfilled. The success of which in no small part is due to Mr. Waller, the Club's Sponsor.

Varsity "A" Club
The Varsity "A" Club, now in its third year, continues to make a name for itself. The
Varsity "A" Club consists of boys who have earned a letter in any sport in the Allentown
High School. The club will long be remembered for its fine work. ln 1943 the club sold
War Saving Stamps to the pupils of the high school, and carried on a highly successful
scrap drive. The organization is rapidly becoming one of the most valuable clubs of
This year the club presented another hilarious comedy, sponsored by B. S. Kane,

Us Belles of '43
fWith apologies to Mr. Edgar Allan Poel
Hear the l943 belles,
What a world of youth and ioy their chattering foretells!
How they chatter, chatter, chatter, '
From morn and noon to night!
While the profs, that oversprinkle
All the halls, seem to twinkle
With professional delight.
There are Brelsford, Tallmadge, Neil,
They can talk until you keel,
From Phyl Bitler, our debater, Caryl Gordin talking wells,
From the belles, belles, belles, belles,
Belles, belles, belles-
From the babbling and the gabbling of the belles.
Hear the lilting, laughing belles,
What a world of sport and fun their liquid note fortellsl
Through the drowsy study hall
Hear Ross's laughing call!
Hear the running, rippling notes
All out of tune.
Hear from all the gay young throats
Wavering sound like the air-raid sirens on which the pupils dote.
Hear the Ioons!
When from Corinne Ridley swells
A peal of fun for other belles,
How she tells
Of the spirit that impels
The chaffing and the laughing
Of the belles, belles, belles, belles,
Belles, belles, belies--
Of the lilting and the lilting laugh of bellesl
Hear the grave and solemn belles,
What learning and what wisdom their thoughtful toiling tells!
Day and night, at home and school
How they study rule on rule.
For the world they're no concern,
All they do is learn, learn, learn,
Night and day.
Then there's Whitenight, Brophy, Reinhard, Kichline, Drayton,
Getz and Brown,
They're brainy belles, their shining light the brightest in the town.

Che Belles of '43
Except for Knecht, Garrahan, Wentz,
The "will's" and "can's" and "do's" and never "cant's",
Who with resolute endeavor
Struggle on and upward ever.
Now add to these the students Marcy, Grider-f
Oh, the belles, belles, belles!
What a tale their working tells
Of honest ioy!
Like the hum of busy bee
Hear their song of industry,
A song of pure content without alloy.
From the sound one fully knows,
By the murmur
Soft nowffnow firmer,
How their interest ebbs and flows,
From their faces one can tell,
By the lightening
And the brightening
Of their eyes, they love it wellfe
This deep desire for knowledge which none shall ever quell
Of the belles,
Of the belles, belles, belles, belles,
Belles, belles, belies'
Oh the yearning for great learning of the belles!
Hear the music of the belles,
What a world of iargon iive their iitterbugging spells!
ln the wee hours of the night
Hear the laugh of youth's delight!
Hear the merry sounds of ioy,
See the glances, shy and coy
From the fair.
Oh there's Miller, Moyer, Muth, Wessner, Walters, Wagner, "Jake",
Sparkling eyes, lovely lips, waving hair, what tempting
What delights of youth they're sipping,
See them swooping, drooping, dipping,
As o'er glazed floors they are slipping.
Hear admiring folks declare,
"There's Lucille and "L'retta Frey."
Oh! the belles, belles, belles!
The crowd their fame 'foretells
One by one.
"Ueberroth, Quinn, Bedell, and Mittl,
Phyllis Bauer-my, she is little!

Che Qellef of '43
See that slender Rickel girl,
Ruth Garger, what a whirl!"
What flash from eyes, what flirt of curl,
All the tricks and traits of pretty girls that be.
See the lovely forms of grace!
Eyes so happy!
Steps so snappy!
Or the drowsy droops of le'sure
As the waltz draws on with pleasure
What is in these pretty belles
Which draws the spirit or impels
ls't the babbling and the gabbling?
ls't the chaffing and the laughing?
ls't the studying and the tolling?
ls't the swooping and the drooping?
'Tis a happy combination
Found in girls of every nation
More or less.
Which is really more, the dancer,
Student, talker, laughter?-Answer?
You must guess!
More or less.
For the belles, belles, belles, belles,
Belles, belles, belles
Keep you guessing day and night,
And you're never sure you're right
About the belles, belles, belles,
Belles, belles, belles, belles,

The Staff of the Comus wishes to call the attention of the faculty
and the members ofthe class of 1943 and their families to the following
list of Allentown business men. It stands to reason that the men who
advertise in the Comus are not only interested, but actively interested, in
the school and in the young people who are graduated from the school.
The single active return that we can make for this interest is to familiarize
ourselves with these names and to patronize our advertisers, who are
in this case also our friends, whenever the occasion arises.
