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. Alma Mater 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. E35 4 Avi DANIEL W.

' .4 r . lgortrait C09 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 his happiest. 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 catalogues. 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 accorded him. 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. A1-., . A ,ixmffl ME s .-L 4 ,Jw 'rfhit v., 'rv -51,6 r , V, X, 3. , ' 5.

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 conditions. 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.

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 mechanical drafting. ADAMS, EDWIN Eddie General 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. f Cffv-wf'Nf' I J ff fee- German Club 4, National Honor Society 3 4 Aeronautics 4 ADAMS, FRANCES, M.

Fran is looking forward to a career in nursing. Her sym- pathetic nature and her ability to keep her head promise nothing but success and happiness. ADAMS, HELEN Spggk Commercial 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. Page Fifteen 1943 CDMUS ADAMS, JOYCE Joyce General 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. Dramatics 2, 3 ALBRIGHT, ROBERT H. Blondie College Preparatory 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 General 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 Commercial 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. Page Sixteen 1943 CUMUS ANGSTADT, A. RICHARD Dick Commercial 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 Commercial 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 General 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 Retail Seeling Thou hast no faults, or l no faults can spyf Thou art all beauty, or all blindness l. Sadie is a girl with whom one likes to be friends. Her ability to make friends so easily accounts for her long list af them. A sense of humor plus a pleasant smile also helps. She greatly enioys hiking and movies. Page Seventeen 5 Domus ASTON, BETTY JANE Betts Commercial Can't? Come on, l'll help you. Betty, who has a pleasing personality and a charming dis- position, in spite of the fact that she takes her studying seriously, is always ready to ioin in the fun. She is always eager to help anyone whenever she can. BACHMAN, HENRY Henny General My shining ship through unknown seas Shall sail through many a day. Henny is a sociable young man with everyone but women. He is not too brilliant, but gets along with the help of others. He expects to ioin the Marines after graduation. Some of his favorite sports are football, basketball, and baseball. BACKENSTO, DAVID E. Dave College Preparatory A smile for every boy and two for every girl. Dave is a resourceful fellow who can dish out the corn along with the best of them. He loves to dance, and indulges in all sports, his favorite being football. He also is an ardent fan of basketball. Like his brother, he wanted to play high school football, but he couldn't get his parents' permission. Dave's hopes are centered on the Navy Air Corps. DeMolay, Gym Team 2, 4f Aeronautics 4 BAEHLER, THEODORE Ted General Will l go along? Yes! Where? Almost every student knows Ted's swell personality. ln fact, thinking more of his friends than his studies has been his greatest trouble. Ted is a clean-cut, all-round American youth. He was 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. Page Eighteen 1943 CDMU5 BALL, WILLARD E. Willie General 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 BALLIET, JEAN M. Jeanne General True wit is nature to advantage dressed. Personality plusl There's a friendly greeting tucked away in .leanne's smile, and an air of cheer pervading her manner, she's a companionable maiden.

He spends his time shooting pool, dancing, bowling, or at the Y. M. C. A., where he has been a member for six years. He is to be an airplane de- signer, and we wish him the best of lucky he deserves it. T Square Club 2 BARRALL, RUTH ELIZABETH Tootie Commercial 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. Page Nineteen 1943 CDMU5 BARTELS, WILLIAM Bill College Preparatory 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 Pattern Shop The woman hater of the pattern shop. An excellent pattern maker is Germ, at home, at school, and at work.

Manager 3, 4 WERTMAN, RICHARD Wertie Electric Shop He's not too short, and not too tall lust an average guy-that's all. Outstanding in his studies and popular with his friends, Wertie is liked by all. Although an earnest worker, he is interested in football and basketball. He also likes hunting, but he misses practically everything he shoots at. His hobbies are whittling and making things with his hands, and he has made some nice pieces of handicraft. Wertie plans to be a bachelor, but iust until the right girl comes along, and he hopes it won't take her long.

Her pet pastime is dancing, her pet worry, how to keep the members quiet at club meetings. Especially interested in art, she has made several posters for school ativities. Shirley hopes to enter Kutztown State Teachers college to continue her study of art.

Some day after the war she will have a permanent position with a handsome Marine, but until then she will be content to be a steno- grapher. WETZEL, BETTY Irish Commercial Loyalty is worth more than money. Betty is o friend of everyone, because she never ceases to do favors for someone else.

Everyone will remember George for his brilliant football, his witty remarks, and his attraction for the fair sex. Zeke has many times helped tote the pigskin to the double line stripe of the opponent's goal. His scholastic as well as his athletic standing may well be recognized.

However, what is probably more important, Dick has a wonderful sense of humor. lt's a toss-up whether tennis or gardening is Dick's favorite pastime, if he isn't wielding a racket he's caring for flowers or shrubs. For tennis, refer to his record on the tennis team for the last two years. Basketball and football games would never get by without him. If being on energetic student, a helpful friend, and a good sport spells success, Dick should have it and lots to spare. WILLETTE, CATHERINE M.

But Jeanne needs no words, she expresses herself on canvass. She doesn't tell her middle name to anyone, but it could very well stand for high ideals. Swimming and dancing are among Jeanne's diversions, and she never tires of swinging at a shuttle-cock. Jeanne's idea of a perfect week-end is to pack up her iodphurs and spend the days "roughing it" at the Wolf cottage with a few girl friends.

YEAGER, ALYCE VERNE Allie College Preparatory Every artist clips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures. If it is true that one's works reflect the artist's personality, we could easily read the personality of Alyce in her pictures with their soft, subdued colors and well-organized design, painted with an almost tender perfection. They suggest a modest yet confident personality, a fine, delicate instinct for the beautiful, and a meticul- ous exactness, which explains her skill in solving algebra problems. What her pictures do not reveal is her ability as a pianist, and her love for dances, people, and fun.

J. is one of the many Betties in our class, but, like the adver- tisement, there's a difference with a distinction. B. J. believes lessons should give precedence to things of more importance. She is very fond of gym, and proves the fact by having the teacher's time clock to take the roll call. Although she hasn't any special hobbies, be- lieve it or not, this girl likes to study about bugs and woolly cater- pillars. B. J. expects to go on wih her education, and may go into that field. Chubby YOUNG, WILLIAM RAYMOND Moon Print Shop A rolling stone gathers no moss. Moon is a humorous and a swell guy, but he doesn't believe in rough play and wise-cracks. His ambition is to become a first class printer in some large plant. He can tell you more about printing than any ten guys, and never as much as wink an eye.

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.

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.

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. Paae Twn Hundred and Twnntv.n-um ,943 CDMUS 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 L .. 1943 CUMU5 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- pulsive, opinions. 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 fellows miss. 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. Page Two Hundred and Twenty-nine IQQXNHIGQXP QA 1855 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. Page Two Hundred and Thirty f9"lllHlc'9o'- .5 R ' fi Q '943 Q D CUMUS L A 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 1943 CUMU5 Comus Staff "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 fS5'NHlc"m 1943 CUMU-S L A 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 rw WG, L A l 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. Page Two Hundred and Thirty-four WW . 'WX ' X V A-Q' '. '? 25'-5-3 , --'f' 7'4" irfv w 'L' 7? -X -ff.-Xw 'V ' '-XF".

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. Page Two Hundred and Thirty-five f9"NHlc"m 1943 CUMUS L A RALPH V. WETHERHOLD ' ln addition to his teaching duties, Mr. Wetherhold serves as the backbone of A. H. S. athletics. As faculty manager, he has charge of arranging all sports schedules, and through his contact with coaches and teams all over the state, he has no difficulty in arranging the finest possible schedules. For his fine work during the past year, Mr. Wetherhold was elected as president of the Big Fifteen and president of the Eastern Pennsylvania Scholastic Swimming League. Page Two Hundred and Thirty-six 1943 CUMUS TOM BRENNAN A. H. S. Coaches TOM BRENNAN 'For years A. H. S. teams have been known for their impregnable lines on the defense and for their hard charging forward walls on the offense. Tom Brennan is the man responsible for the molding of the blocks of granite that A. H. S. teams have for a line. A good football team must have a good line, and Mr. Brennan sees to it that A. H. S. teams have a forward wall second to none. PAUL CLYMER When a smooth working opponent comes to town with a series of plays that seem as if they must work but never quite do, one can look to Pauley Clymer as the man who knew about these plays for weeks in advance. lt is Pauley's eagle-eye scouting that turns the trick every time. ln a decade of service both as track coach, and as assistant basketball coach, Paul Clymer has served A. H. S. with a know- ledge and coaching wizardry all his own. KENNETH WILDONGER -An A. H. S. graduate who made good in a big way at college and came back to guide his alma mater on a victorious trail, Kenneth Wildonger has been coach of A. H. S. Jay Vee squads, both basketball and football. PAUL CLYMER KENNETH WILDONGER Page Two Hundred and Thirty-seven 1943 CDMUS DAVID HACKET J. MILO SEWARDS RUSSEL KNAUSS A. H. S. Coaches DAVID HACKETH-Dave Hacket, known and respected as an authority on all aquatics, is the man behind the hard-churning A. H. S. mermen. An expert life-saving instructor as well, Dave is the big reason why A. H. S. swim teams hold the titles and prestige that they do. 'RUSSEL KNAUSS--Russel "Tush" Knauss, coach of the A. H. S. netmen and contortionists, is one of the better coaches of tennis in eastern Pennsylvania. Last year the tennis-sers went through an undefeated campaign, crushing all valley opponents by decisive margins, thanks to the superior training of Tush Knauss. JOSEPH "MlLO" SEWARDS--'A former Canary and Blue athlete, who excelled in football, basketball, and baseball under Birney Crum, became assistant coach at Allentown High in i940 along with Ken Wildonger. Joe is now a Chief Petty Officer at the Sampson Naval Training Station, New York. He is serving his country with the same drive and determination that he showed at Allentown High.

Coaches ROBERT GEHRINGER- -Mr. Gehringer, who assisted Coach Crum in football and served as a physical education instructor, was a football and track star at Allentown High. Bob is at Norfolk Naval Training Station serving as a Chief Petty Officer. He entered the Navy in December of last year. HELEN NOBLE SLOAN-Mrs. Sloan, one of the most charming and active teachers at high school, is the sponsor of many extracurricular sports for girls. She organizes the ping- pong and tennis tournaments, and in these past few months she has been drilling girls for the Physical Fitness exhibition. Mrs- Sloan is a true source of inspiration and a real guidance to all her pupils. MIRIAM BOYER-'Slim and full of pep, Miss Boyer is the capable sponsor of the Girls' Gym Club and the Girls' intra- mural basketball teams. Besides coaching the Gym Club for its various exhibitions, she too has done a wonderful iob in patiently drilling hundreds of girls for the Physical Fitness exhibition. Popular and fun-loving, Miss Boyer is respected and admired by all her pupils as a true friend and a real adviser.

Then we will know that- Victor or loserfnone will win, For then all will be gone- All hate, All love, 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, More hate, More death, 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 To steal And kill, For man is man, And such must always be.

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. JOYCE BONSTEIN ELIZABETH BRIGGS FREDA FETZER GERALD HUTTER HENRIETTA MILLER ROBERT MAIKES LORETTA GARRAHAN ROBERT ERICH THOMAS GRIDER Page Two Hundred and Forty-one 1943 CDMU5- Wl1o's Who in Football BOB NUMBERS, center-Captain and a member of the all-state football squad. Bob held up the center of the Allentown line throughout the season. FRITZ SNYDER, tackle-Another Canary who earned a berth on the all-state team. Fritz struck fear into the hearts of opposing backfield men with his charging tactics and determination. CHARLIE KARAMAN, guard'--A charging guard who generally camps in the oppon- ents' backfield. DlCK ANDERSON, fullback'-A consistent ground gainer and the Canary mainstay in the kicking department. LEO CRAMPSEY, end-A pass-snatcher of the glue-fingered variety, and a good man on defense. ERNIE DEMETER, quarterback--A smart general on the gridiron, who blocks with amazing effciency. JERRY SCHMOYER, guard-Not a flashy performer, but Jerry had the knack of being in the right spot at the right time. GENE DIEFENDERFER, halfbackwOpposing tacklers have considered using motor- cyclqor chasing Ge ep they can't catch him any other way. R S M . -- i , ha fback-A big bruising back who simply butted his way through opposing lines. Russ throws an accurate pass. PETE SUKEENA, tackle-All season his side of the line was a closed door to enemy runners. RAY HOLZ, endAA bulwark on the defense, and always a threat when the Canaries took to the air. JOHN BARANCHOK, halfback-Outran enemy tacklers all year and gave safety men the chills. GEORGE WHITNER, fullbackfSplit open opposing lines and gained valuable ground all season. KEN MlNCHlN, fullbackkSparkled on the defense, where he was consistently inter- cepting passes. BILLY KLlNE, quarterback-A triple threat man who led the team in great fashion. WALT ZIEGER, halfback-Specialized in place kicking, and aided the Allentown cause all season. George Steckel, Dick Keen, Dave Williams, Harry Hartman, Wes Farmer, Franz Fischl, Henry Gearhart, Bob Harr, and Bob Hamilton all did a great iob of substituting in the backfield. Bob Bossons, Bennicuff, Harry Fullas, Ray Kern, Mel McNabb, Tom Richardson, Mel Keyser, Kressler, Macknis, Shafer, Reese, Zaro, and Woodring were capable replacements for the line. Page Two Hundred and Forty-two 1943 CUMUS 1942 Football Season WEST HAZLETON 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. NORTHAMPTON 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 Farmer. ST. CLAIR 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 game. HAZLETON 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 1943 CDMUS 1942 Football Season READING 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. PHILLIPSBURG 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 success. POTTSVILLE 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 end zone. 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. EASTON 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. SCRANTON 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. BETHLEHEM 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. Page Two Hundred and Forty-four 1943 CUMUS Who's Who in Basketball MOON HANEY Captain and the deadliest sharp shooter on the squad.

MIKE MELlNCHOKvfHas an unorthodox set shot, but it is an effective weapon. Mike is a great pivot scorer. DICK SCHMIDT--+ One of the smoothest and smartest ball handlers on the team. He is skillful in dribbling through the enemy's defense for lay-up shots. BILL GOWERAfBill is a valuable man for breaking up close ball games with his long, looping, accurate set shots. BILL KLINE-Bill moved up from the iunior varsity in late-season and proved to be a great scoring star. DICK FRANKLIN-A great defensive ball hawk and a real scoring threat with a left hand push shot. HENRY GERHARD f-e- Another upcoming basketball performer who directs offensive operations with his sharp ball handling. KEN MINCHIN-fLanky, fast and aggressive ball player, Ken scores points from various angles. Page Two Hundred and Forty-five ,943 CDMU5 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. ALUMNI 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. EMMAUS 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. PHILLIPSBURG 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. SOUTH WHITEHALL 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 1943 CUMU5 Review of 1942-43 Basketball Season BETH LEHEM 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. PALMERTON 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. HAZLETON 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 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. POTTSVILLE 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 fray. EASTON 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. PHILLIPSBURG 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. PALMERTON 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 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 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 1943 CDMU5 Review of 1942-43 Basketball Season CENTRAL CATHOLIC 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. POTTSVILLE 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 league triumph. EASTON 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. READING 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. BETHLEHEM 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 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. LOWER MERION 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. TAMAQUA 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. 1942-43 BASKETBALL SEASON SCHEDULE Allentown 49 Home Alumni i"AlIentown Home Bethlehem 33 Allentown 60 Home Emmaus fAIIentown Away Hazleton 36 Allentown 46 Home Phillipsburg Allentown Away lower Merion 45 Allentown 56 Home South Whitehall y'Allentown Home Tamaqua 24 'kAllentown 32 Away Bethlehem i"AIlentown Away Pottsville 32 Allentown 29 Home Palmerton "'Allentown Home Easton 37 'fAllentown 44 Home Hazleton Allentown Away Phillipsburg 44 i'Allentown 58 Away Tamaqua Allentown Away Reading 33 'Allentown 39 Home Pottsville Allentown Home Central Catholic 33 'Allentown 59 Away Easton Allentown Away Central Catholic 31 Allentown 34 Home Reading 4 'l'-League Games 739 Page Two Hundred and Forty-eight 1943 CDMUS Track 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 Emmaus 54Vz to 465 and Phillipsburg 57 to 5l. The Allentown relay team of Mike Elchook, Gene diefenderfer, Willie Flamish, and Bob Klein, entered the Penn Relays and placed sixth. 1943 TRACK SCHEDULE April l3 Inter Class Meet Home April 29 Bethlehem Home April 20 Phillipsburg Away May 4 Emmaus Home April 24 Penn Relays Away May l l Reading Home PERSONNEL Dashmen Weights Mike Elchook Russ Strait Gene Diefenderfer Hufdles Ralph Walters Rudolph Favotto Jack Moser Richard Holveck Wesley Farmer John McNally Leonard Glazier Charles Edwards Richard Franklin James Brown Distance Jumps Robert Kline John Yeager William Flamish John Mertz Robert SHOW Jack Mqggr Robert Gery Paul Harrich Page Two Hundred and Forty-nine John Waelchli John Baranchok Donald Miller' pil-EN7' 1943 CUMUS 'P- I 3 larva 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 Allentown. BLAIR 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. COATESVILLE Allentown lost their second straight dual meet when a superior Coatesville High aggregation defeated the Canaries to score. READING 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 brilliant perfcrmances. MERCERSBURG 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. READING 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.

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.

The rivers wind and intercross 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, Their trunks outstretched so high. And high above, the fading sun Gives way to a full moon, And twinkling stars, maiestically, Proclaim that night is soon. Kathleen Bunk C09 .gfys Over Wow Life can be dull, Life can be plain, Life can be iolly, and yet full of pain, Life can be hopeless and cruel and undone, But unless you're a student, Life isn't much fun. Folks can be happy, and folks can be sad, Men can be lonely, yet make women glad. You can be young, and you can be free, But unless your a student, you're something to see. You may have seen people, both young and quite old, You may have experienced the heat and the cold, O yes, your quite lucky, but you're not perfect, lad, Unless you have taken the chance that you had. The chance to know all that is offered to you, The great chance to conquer, the new things to do. lt's all over now, yes, but don't you feel sad, Because you refused the best chance that you had.

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.

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.

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, auditorium.

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.

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 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.

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 1942-43.

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.

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.

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 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 its 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.

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.

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.

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 in reserve.

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 Bulletin. 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.

A '355 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.

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 the school. This year the club presented another hilarious comedy, sponsored by B. S. Kane, Kenneth Wildonger, and the club officers.

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.
