A patchwork quilt of Life we sewg
Today will be bright gold,
For graduation is a goal
We reach in triumph bold!
To have Life's quilt a work of art
We'll welcome each new day
With color-bright or drab-to work
A masterpiece, we prayl
Red letter days, to stitch with joy,
Some blue, set in with tears,
The silver ones for sorrow deep
That comes down through the years.
But when we view in retrospect
Our work, so nearly done,
Today's bright gold will touch our hearts-
Untarnished, perfect one!

Our cheerleaders have carried on the tradition of whooping it up at all our
athletic contests in excellent style. Their efforts in coaxing and cajoling the student
body to cheer like mad often gave inspiration to our teams when the going was
roughest. Their caper-cutting often attracted as much interest as the game itself.
When enthusiasm or school spirit began to lag, this enthusiastic group provided the
stimulus that it takes to make our school a Winner. The group lent color and
atmosphere to all of our favorite sport activities and pep rallies.

Allentown High faced perhaps the toughest schedule ever arranged for an AHS team during
the I9-I7 football season. Barred from playing any P.l.A.A. teams for a period of one year, the
schedule was composed of tough prep school teams and outstanding Philadelphia high school elevens.
At the conclusion of the season the Canaries showed the commendable record of seven victories and
Allentown High opened the I9-I7 season with a 2Sf6 victory over Dobbins Tech. High of Phila-
delphia. VValter Dex scored twice to lead the Canaries to their seventeenth consecutive victory.
Southern High of l'hiladelphia put up a terrilic battle before becoming the Canaries eighteenth
consecutive victim. After Allentown came from behind in the linal period with a touchdown, lfddie
Slennner drop-kicked the extra point that gave AHS a 13-12 victory. Lawson Heclcman accounted
for both Allentown touchdowns.
Schwartz, Heclcman, Daslcolas, Gentile, Hushkek, and Horn all scored touchdowns as the
Canaries easily overcame lien Franklin 39-0. It was the Canaries nineteenth consecutive victory
and third of the season.
llullis Prep School of Silver Springs, Maryland ended Allentown's winning streak with a 743
victory. The capacity crowd that witnessed the game saw the outweighed, outmanned Canaries
put up a determined struggle. The only score of the game came on a 26-yard pass play.
Once again AIIS resumed its winning ways with a 16--0 victory over Charlotte Hall Military
Academy. The score does not indicate the superiority of the Canaries who pushed their opponents
all over the field. Keith Krause blocked two Charlotte plll1l'S to aid the Canary cause.
Allentown High absorbed one of its worst bearings in many years when Roman Catholic of
I'hiladelphia defeated the Canaries Z6-7. After dominating play throughout the lirst half AHS
collapsed during the remainder of the contest as the Philadelphians scored with ease.
l,ecl by gigantic lfrnie Parks, the Golden Danes of Romford Prep handed Allentown High its
second consecutive setback by an I8-73 score. liddie Slemmer's second Held goal of the season
accounted for Allentown's three points.
Dt-Vitr l'rep of VVashington, D. C. became Allentown High's fifth victim when they bowed to
the Canaries 25 IZ. The score was tied 6 f-6 at halftime but a 60-yard run on a pass interception by
Charlie Kehuel gave AHS the lead.
One foot proved the difference between a tie and a defeat as West Philadelphia defeated the
Canaries I3 6. Walter Dex, who scored Allentown's only touchdown kept AHS in the game with
his passing and running but a last minute touchdown drive fell one foot short of a touchdown.
The Canaries put on their most dazzling performance of the season in overcoming Perkiomen
Prep. Charles Daskolas' 65-yard touchdown, on an intercepted pass, provided the sensational climax
that concluded the season in a blaze of glory.

VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM
Allentown High School's Canaries finished out their regular basketball schedule
for 1947418 in successful fashion, winning 17 games and losing three. This record
contains a 14 game winning streak, broken by Brown Prep in a game played in the
Walter Schmidt, Canary forward and senior, put in a terrific scoring pace in
the second half season to win individual high scoring honors with 103 field goals
and 30 fouls in 20 games for 236 points. Speedy George Fedok, Canary guard,
climbed into second position during the second half drive to accumulate 62 from the
lield and -12 on the foul stripe for a 166 point total.
Fred Schwartz, lirst-half season scoring leader, took third place honors with 66
field goals and 28 fouls for 160 points. Center Al Cassium totaled 152 points on
56 from the Held and -1,0 on the foul line for forth slot, and Bobby Levan fifth on S0
field goals and 30 foul goals for 130.
All five mentioned above were starters for Coach Birney Crum's Canaries and
as seniors played their last season of basketball at Allentown High School. There-
fore their loss will be a big blow to next year's Canary squad, but with much good
material coming up from the Allentown reserves and the junior high schools,
Canary coaches will be able to develop another outstanding team.

Allentown High School's wrestling team finished the season with a commend-
able record of two victories and three defeats. Meeting high class opposition the
Canary grapplers continually found themselves up against older and more ex-
Co-captain Luther Ginkinger of the 120 lb. class was undefeated in four
matches, three of them were won by pins. Norman Schaeffer, heavyweight, also
won four matches, three of them by pins, but was defeated once. lf AHS had not
been suspended from the P.l.A.A. these two could have gone far in state com-
Other members of the team who contributed two victores were: Fred Walck,
William Gardner, co-Captain Fred Long, and Charles Zimmerman.

The Canary mermen, always a strong factor in swimming in Pennsylvania
schoolboy ranks, had to forego competition in the P.I.A.A. and step into stronger
competition among prep schools. As a consequence they lost live meets and won
but two. However, the team produced many standout performances and broke
several school records. Coach Dave Hacket can well envision a revival of Allentown
Highdswimmers fame in another year, for he will lose only four men from this year's
Leading scorer on the team was the sensational sophomore Charlie Hersh, who
scored 40M points. He toppled the old 200 yard free style record of 2:27.3 held by
Dick Mertz when he registered 2123.2 in the first meet of the season. Hersh's mark
was broken later by Jack Kern at 2 :22.9. Kern tallied ISM points.
Senior members were Bill Seip, backstroker with 21M points, Robin Buckley,
breaststroker, NM, Frank Zazo, freestyler IM, and backstroker Dale Smith 1.
Other point makers on the large list of underclassmen are juniors: Carl Rohr-
bach, freestyle, 20 5f12 points, Paul Hummel, diving 135 Bob McFadden, freestyle
13, Norman Ott, freestyle 4, Sophomores: Phil Newman SM, George Bentz 4:15
and Robert Saylor, who swam the breast and backstroke, Wentz IM.
Facing an abbreviated schedule, this year's baseball team had little oppor-
tunity to show its wares. ln the opening game ofthe season the Canaries came
from behind to score a surprise ll-7 victory over the Wvonling Seminary team on
the Wyoming home field. ln their second game, however, Allentown was defeated
by Perkiomen Prep 84.
Most of the team was made up of underclassmen and coaches Sewards and
Wildonger are building for future campaigns. Despite the handicap of inclement
weather. the squad worked hard to prepare for their opponents.
Returning from the 1947 team are: George Fedok, john Keppel, Charles
Marsh, Robert Mellman, Edward Slemmer, and George Solcol.
Previous to the start ofthe season coach Sewards conducted an interclass
tournament. The victorious seniors defeated the juniors and sophomores by scores
of 34 and 2-l.

the two scheduled meets.
John Blanchard, Louis Calpey, Walter Dex, Robert Levan, Robert Greason,
and Don Wolfe are among those who are veterans of the 1947 campaign.
ln the annual Interclass Meet conducted prior to the start ofthe season, the
seniors were victorious with 63 points, the sophomores finished second with 34
points, the juniors Finished third with 24 points.

liecause of inclement weather and a short schedule, the tennis squad has not
seen very much action. Using the Oakmont Tennis Club as a home court, they
have gained much through participation in their favorite sport.
Wielding a tennis racquet in the outdoors is one ofthe most beneficial sports
for the individual. It I10t only provides the competitive interest for the player
while in school, but it also contains tremendous carry-over value which allows him
to enjoy physical recreation for many years in the future.

The eighth annual aquacade, entitled "South American Crain," was the most
elaborate water ballet of the entire series produced by Coach Dave Hacket. The
production was a first in the use of fluorescent and luminescent lighting effects
by black lights which truly developed the exotic atmosphere of South America.
More than 100 girls participated in the rippling-to-rhythm, synchronized swimming
program which was presented for five consecutive days before thrill-packed audi-
ences fortunate to hold reserved seat tickets in the Little Palestra pool.
A feature of the show was the baton twirling of Jackie Schoenberger, the first
in our school's history to combine majorette and swimming talents. Prior to her
baton routine Jackie gave an acrobatic dance.
Instrumental numbers featured the school's outstanding soprano, Lois Copeg
accordianist, Alice Snyderg and marimba soloist, Dolores Fenstermaker.
Ann Rhoda acted as captain on the cruise with Lois Cope and Frances Wil-
finger as her first and second mates. Helen Diehl was captain of the aquacade and
Shirley Cease served as her assistant. Student directors were Barbara Carty,
Barbara Davis, Helen Diehl, Betty Snyder, Shirley Williams, Catherine McIn-
tyre, and Sally Neuweiler. Nancy Reinhard and Patricia Scheirer managed the
amplification, Barbara Dickert and Kathryn Mack were student custodians.
Drawing considerable attention because of its blending with the theme ofthe
program was the art work done by the art students under the direction of James
Musselman. The walls of the Palestra were appropriately decorated in a tropical
motif, an artistic setting that formed the back drop for the intricate designs that
our mermaids swam. Other departments that helped to make the show a success
were dramatics, Miss Joyce Beary and Miss Rhoda Herr, music, Mr. Richard
Neubert and Mr. Albertus Meyers, vocational, Mr. Ralph Shimer, Mr. Charles
Stephenson, and Mr. Warren Taylor.
The program ofthe show was as follows:
. All Aboard, entire cast 9. Caribbean Nights
2. Sea Nymph Fashion Parade 10. Las Muchachas Dolphoines
3. Atlantic Warblers 11. Olds Sea Slats
4. Three Bells, All is Well 12. Spanish Silhouettes

CLASS OF 1948 DRAMATICS
The dramatic activities of the Class of '48 have been wide in scope and superior in quality.
We have done more than our share in raising the standards of AHS activities, not just by acting,
but through the cooperation of the class as a whole. There are many achievements to our credit
without which it would have been impossible to offer such successful productions.
Probably first in importance is the students' eagerness to participate in the various dramatic
ventures. Our zeal was certainly shown in the splendid representation of our first production,
the interclass play Love Your Neighbor, in March of 1946. Although we were just a little bit
green in the ways of AHS, we still managed to fill over one-third of the cast. This spirit has con-
tinued through our three years at AHS. Second in importance was greater variety in the type
of drama produced. Third in importance was our two and three night stands, the Class of 1948
was probably the first in the history of Allentown High to introduce repeated performances on
consecutive evenings. Fourth, better scenery, improved electrical effects, diversified programs
and outstanding publicity.
The third and fourth goals might never have been reached without Lois Eisenhard's per-
suasive efforts exercised on the powers that be, or the persistance and skill of Alan Super and
Charles Qualley in buying, mixing, spreading, and voicing their opinions of light green water
paint. The efforts of Charles Snelling and Elwood Semmel in publicizing the productions some-
times led one to think the dramatic crowd were in constant rehearsal for The Huckrterr. As for
the programs, the class program committee could never have achieved the success it did without
the cooperation of Mr. James Musselman of the art department, Mr. Ivan Bixler of the printing
department, and Mr. Shimer from the electric department. Of course, it would hardly have been
possible to have a successful play if the actors had not done such fine jobs.
The Class of '48 has set an outstanding precedent in their relation with the school custodians,
who in close harmony with the committee, formed for each production a hub about which the
actors could move. Maybe through the years there have been big wheels and little wheels and
every now and then a feeling of disagreement, but the main wheel has always been one of co-
One ofthe most glamorous events of the year was the annual fashion show. The show, in its
fourth year of presentation, was appropriately named "The Story of Fashion." Through the
cooperation of Mr. Robert Stimmel of the Distributive Education Department and some of the
local merchants it was possible for the girls of AHS to get a preview of the new spring styles. The
show was presented to the parents and friends on March 9 and to the girls on March 10 during
A very pleasant surprise was in store for some of the models. Just before the evening show
several photographers from Lzlfe' took pictures for their magazine.
The styles shown featured one of the most important assets to a girl's wardrobe this spring-
the "new look." From gorgeous gowns to pretty pedal-pushers, it was evident that the trend
toward softer, more feminine lines is becoming exceedingly popular with girls and women every-
Sportswear shown consisted of bathing suits, slacks, shorts, and skirts and blouses. Coats
and suits accentuated the ballerina skirt with its flowing lines. Pretty print dresses and the
highlight of the show, the evening gowns, were also modeled by the girls. The gowns were of
pastel shades, and some featured off-the-shoulder, tight-fitting bodices.
Music was furnished by the Canary Cavaliers and Betty Abraham, soloist. Mr. Stimmel
was assisted by Miss Lucy Bittner and Miss Eleanor Geisinger and personnel from the stores
that furnished the apparel. Narrators for the different events were Doris Ehrich, Elaine Wal-
lander, Ethel McAuliffe, and Lillian Miller.

THE BAND AND MAJCRETTES

This year our school has seen its marching band develop into a magniiicent
organization. Under the expert guidance of Mr. Meyers the band has performed
intricate drills which were never before conceived. Spectators will recall the
colorful performance at the Thanksgiving Day game when the band formed a
church while the octette sang an appropriate selection. The spectacular display
on the night of the Roman Catholic game, when the "Bells of St. Mary" was sung
and played cannot go unmentioned. Then too, our Concert Band has been a great
success. During the Christmas holidays it took part in a concert at Harrisburg.
The majority of students fail to appreciate just what makes these achievements
possible. To the energy, skill, and enthusiasm of Mr. Meyers, who spent long
hours in march and drill rehearsals for the part of each member, we may attribute
the success of this splendid musical group.
The concert orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Albertus L. Meyers, is an
outstanding organization in our high school. It not only delights audiences during
auditorium periods, but other extra-curricular activities. It features both classical
and popular music.
ln recent years individual members have won honors for their Alma Mater
by participating in the Eastern District and All-State Orchestras. The group has
also proved itself worthy, by winning top honors at the annual Kutztown Music
In March, the orchestra, together with the band, presents an annual Spring
Concert for the enjoyment of the public. They, truly, proved themselves an asset
to the school.

A busy schedule of events in the school and community were enjoyed by the eighty members
of the A Cappella Choir under the new direction of Richard Neubert. Concerts marking the Christ-
mas Season and Music Week featured the choir which made its initial debut in December in a
specially prepared sacred program.
The round of activities for the year, arranged chronologically shows quite an extensive effort
on the part of our choristers.
In DECEMBER: Three assembly appearances marking the Christmas Season, Concert, Good
Shepherd Home, Concert, Hess Brothers Department Store, Bell Telephone Party,
Americus Hotel, Radio Broadcast, WSAN, Capital Bakers program.
In JANUARY: Annual Concert, High School Auditorium.
In FEBRUARY: Two assembly programs Central Junior High School, Concert, Conference of
Christians and Jews, Masonic Temple.
In MARCH: Assembly Concert for the students, Raub Junior High School Concert.
In APRIL: Harrison Morton Junior High School Concert. '
In MAY: Annual Music Week observance, American Pageant.
In enlarging the choir from sixty to eighty voices it was necessary to procure twenty new gowns
which were paid for from concert receipts. Plans are made for an additional mixed chorus in the
high school next year. This will function on a five day per week basis.
A trip to the music center of the world, New York City, provided an enjoyable finale for our
1947-48 A Cappella Choir members.
'lihe Vocanovas is a new group that was organized to sing lighter styles of music
for social functions, foothall games, assembly programs, and various community
affairs. Some of the outstanding events in which the group participated were during
the hall'-time hand maneuvers which featured music of the "Bells of St. lVlary's,"
and its singing of sacred music appropriate for the Thanksgiving Day game. The
Vocanovas also appeared hefore such organizations as the Lions, Cosmopolitan.
lndustrial, Rotary, and Kiwanis Clubs.

The Allentown High School Girls Chorus under the direction of Richard G.
Neubert was organized to provide an opportunity for girls not in the A Cappella
Choir to participate in a group musical activity.
Beginning in September the chorus of sixty voices practised weekly one day
after school and Friday third period. Next year, however, the chorus will be treated
as an elective with girls and boys voices, and rehearsals will be held during school
The January concert given in the High School auditorium included musical
numbers by the various vocal groups. The chorus presented in its portion ofthe
program: "By the Bend ofthe River," "When Love Is Kindf' "The Alphabet,"
"My Johann," and "Johnny Schmol-ter," a Pennsylvania German song.
In their final concert the Girls' Chorus was merged with the A Cappella Choir
in the presentation of "Song of America," by H. Alexander Matthews.
Our high flying Canary Cavaliers have acquired the polish of a professional
organization that will long be remembered for scintillating performances in audi-
torium programs, during basketball games, and at social affairs. Ready to give out
at the drop of a hat, these lads have really created a liesta spirit in the cafeteria

The National Honor Society Was established to create scholastic enthusiasm,
to promote leadership, and to develop charcater in the students of Allentown High
School. The occasion of its twenty-first anniversary was celebrated by a hobby
show at which any student might exhibit his favorite interests.
In an endeavor to improve the appearance of our Alma Mater the Society
engaged in a clean-up campaign with noticeable results. Generous contributions
were made to charitable causes. The Clinic was established for the benefit of
students with low grades. In accordance with this program members of the Society
voluntarily tutored their less gifted classmates. A marked improvement in the
grades of their charges has been a gratifying compensation for the time and eH'ort
expanded in this project. Throughout the term various members have utilized
study periods by acting as messengers, or receptionists in the main office. Service
was rendered to sophomores on that grand, glorious, puzzling hrst day at AHS,
when the upperclassmen were devilishly bent on directing the sophs to the class-
rooms on the fourth Hoor. The National Honor Society with its high standards has
been a model for our school, indeed.

teachers, Miss Mooney, Miss Shoemaker, and Miss Smith, who are doing all in
their power to bring girls sports to the foreground again as they Were many years ago.
The girls in the club perform on the mats, the horse, the spring board and the
parallel bars. Despite the complaints that are heard every Wednesday and Friday
when the club meets, the girls really enjoy themslves. The club exhibited its
proficiency in an exhibition held on March 10, 11, and 12. The purpose ofthe
exhibition was to display to the people of Allentown what the girls at AHS can
accomplish in the held of physical education.

The purpose of this club is to further interest in the French language, customs,
and way of life. As one of their activities they collected fifty-five pounds of food
and sent it to the starving people of France. For each holiday, the members put on
special programs portraying the celebration as it might take place in France. Mem-
hers studied the lives of prominent Frenchmen and have made a scrapbook of facts
and pictures relating to present day France.

'lihe Latin Cluh, one ofthe oldest organizations at AHS undertakes new projects
each year. This term the juniors presented Il play which drew a parallel hetween
the Roman patriots Cicero and Caesar and their counterparts in American history,
VVashington and Lincoln. Coincidental situations in the creation and preservation
of their states were stressed.
Another interesting activity was the construction of "fasces," symlsol of
Roman power. lfveryone enjoyed copying one of L'icero's letters on wax "tahuli"
and the cluh was proud ol' the fact that their translation of the Freedom Pledge
appeared in the lVlarch issue of "Rm llf'.rtz1f," a Latin newspaper to which it suh-
serihes. 'lihe singing of Latin hymns. working of crossword puzzles, and the pre-
sentation ol' reports on ancient life round out a thoroughly interesting program
which is ofgreat henelit to all concerned.

JUNIOR RED CROSS COUNCIL
The Junior Red Cross organization endeavors to encourage the school children
of America to take an interest in the children of other communities and countries.
At Allentown High School Roll Call and Friendship projects are carried out each
year. Meetings are held twice a monthg one for all Junior Red Cross homeroom
representatives, the other for the elected council which consists of three boys and
three girls from each class. Because of the 10095 response to Roll Call, all students
at AHS are memhers ofJunior Red Cross, and every homeroom has a representative
who participates directly in all of its humanitarian activities.

The Orotan Debating Society of the Allentown High School is an organization that had its
beginnings in an era when debating was given public support, when forensic ability was recognized
as an achievement equal to or even surpassing athletic prowess. lts value as a moulding factor
for leadership, responsible citizenship, and even the hrst stages of statesmanship has been evi-
denced in the number of former members who have attained prominence in public life. Although
formal inter-scholastic debate schedules have not been followed during the past decade, informal
meetings at the homes of members have cultivated a knowledge of current problems, fostered a
tolerant give-and-take in free discussions, and afforded a knowledge of procedures in public
discussion, such as, the open forum, round table discussions, town meetings, and formal debate.
During the Christmas Holidays the club sponsored a house dance in recognition of the fact that
the social graces should also play a part in the educational growth of youth.
Plans for the remainder ofthe year include participation in the Oratorical Contest sponsored
by the Lions Club, three panel discussions, a round table discussion, and four formal debates.
It is believed that so varied a program is of real value to the participating members in afford-
ing a constant stimulus to become informed about current social, economic, and political problems.

The Gas Model Club, consists of fifteen boys whose hobby is the construction
and operation of model power airplanes. The purpose ofthe club is to give the boys
an opportunity to discuss such subjects as the building and maintainence of the
planes, the different kinds of fabrics or engines, and types of glue. The members
cooperate in the construction of their planes. When weather permits, the boys
bring their aircraft to school and Hy them on the football field. Each member owns
at least one power plane. They are working to have high caliber planes that will
excel into competition against other aeronautical clubs outside the school.

information in homemaking. Since most of the members intend to become house-
wives someday, the things they learn at their meetings will be of much value to
them later. Mrs. Bennis, a nurse, has given the girls training in care ofthe sick and
the rearing of children. The members also learned the proper making of beds and
general hints useful to good housekeeping.

The Canary, under the guidance of Miss Frances McConnell, faculty advisor,
and Gerald Bergholtl, this year's editor in chief, is well on its way to becoming a
Medalist Award winner. Even though the Canary is only in its second year of pub-
lication, it recently copped second prize at the Columbia Scholastic Press Associa-
Credit for our school paper's status is largely due to the work of its page
editors: Winifred Glose and loan Van Emburg, newsg Lois Eisenhard, editorials,
Malvin Bank, sportsg hlane Lehr, features, and I. Williain Zartman, copy editor.
As in any newspaper, the backbone of the Canary is its staff of twenty-live
reporters who cover their assigned school beats, after which they turn the material
over to their respective page editors. The page editors consult with Miss McConnell
and the editor in chief to plan the page layout or "dummy,"
After the articles are typed by Miss Margaret Kunkle's classes, the dummy
is sent to the school print shop where Mr. Ivan Hixler directs a splendid job of
printing the paper.
Given ll few more years, the Canary is almost sure to gain its dual dream of a
Medalist Award and the fullest backing by the school body.
CANARY ED1TORIAL STAFF
Upon the shoulders of the editorial board rests the burden of our Canary. It
is these seven leaders of the press club who draw up the rough copy of the issues,
and, planning, assigning, writing, reading, and proofing, shape the material into a
perfect example of journalism. It is they who are the driving and guiding force
which leads and directs the mass of reporters. They are always on the job, working
steadily, often overtime to keep the school enlightened and satished. There is the
sports editor, who makes it possible for even those who cannot attend the contests
to appreciate them: and the news editor, who sees to it that every event in the
school is reported. In charge of the inside pages are the feature editor, compiling
examples of school literary talentg and the editorial editor, presenting viewpoints
on important issues. Behind all sits the copy editor, chief proofreader, corrector,
reviser, the man who determines the paper's style, and over all stands the editor-in-
chief, overseer, the one who is blamed for the mistakes and praised for the achieve-
ments. A compact cooperative editorial board leads to greater achievements.

The editor, staff, and faculty adviser, in composing this year's Comu: have
spent every effort to make our annual one to which the Class of 1948, and the
student body in general, can point to with pride. Throughout the book the reader
will detect innovations that depart somewhat from the traditionally formal style
characteristic of the yearbook found in practically every Allentown home. We
have utilized material and ideas from previous publications and have supplemented
this material with original ideas of our own. We have consulted printers, engravers
and publishers for suggestions to make this the best possible vehicle for telling the
story of Allentown High School' and for recalling the pleasurable years of our
youth. The success of our effort lies not in our power to judge but rather in the
manner with which the book will be received by its readers.
We wish to acknowledge sincerely the splendid cooperation and assistance
received from our art instructors Mrs. Blanche Lucas, Mr. Homer Bortz, Mr. James
Musselman, and these art students: David Williams, Virginia Lilly, jewel Pietrobon,
Adelma Smith, Peggy Diehl, Margaret Hausman, Doris Leiser, Marilyn Horlacher,
Our gratitude is also extended to Mr. Robert Brong and his photography staff
for their invaluable service rendered in recording school activities with their
We are particularly grateful to Miss Elizabeth Dietrich who has been a model
of patience in dealing with the copious drafts of material that had to be typed.
At the same time the staff and every member of the senior class takes this
opportunity to thank Miss Helen Gerhard for her inspiration and encouragement,
Mr. Clifford Bartholomew for his generous compliance with numerous requests,
Mrs. Earl Weinsheimer for her tireless efforts expended in checking and double
checking numerous details concomitant with such an undertaking, Mr. Garrett
Miers and Mr. Charles Reinhardt for their practical advice and suggestions in the
preparation of the Comur dummy.
SONNET ON LIFE
Is this, my life, a shell of emptiness
In search of some retreat from this delusion?
A dim, weak shadow lost in dire confusion
And darkness, which foretells of nothingness?
Have all my goals been classed as idle dreams,
Which, transient, 'scape my eager, pleading grasp?
And in whose mirth are mocking at my task
To conquer all my vain and worldly schemes?
But through my dark despair there comes a light
To lead my faltering step, my groping hand,
And take me to some clear, celestial height
Where I might stop and thinkfand thus I stand
And see that Work, alone, can vanquish night,
And bring about the hopes and dreams I've planned.
-VIRGINIA BENNER, '48
Through ice and snow all winter long
I Watched the leaf buds swell,
The warm sun came and made them burst
In springtime's magic spell.
Today I saw a green leaf fall,
I gave the tree a glance-
How long it's preparation therem
I-Iow short it's time to dance!
-JOYCE GRAHAM, '48.
