' N the natural course of human events it becomes necessary
dj once a year, at that time when beautiful Spring is preparing
to end its reign, to call attention to that noble throng of dignified
boys and girls, known as Seniors, without which no school is com-
plete. So now we take great pleasure, ladies and gentlemen, in
introducing to you the Class of '17, It is a great class. It is a
large class. It is the largest class to have yet graduated from the
Altoona High School. It is also the best.
The purpose of this Animal is the same as all other Annuals,
and that is to put in permanent form the activities, social, athletic
and otherwise. of our school year. If we have succeeded in
putting up a book, not that will be read and then thrown away,
but a book that will be read and then preserved as an accurate
record of this Class of '17, then we shall be satisfied as having

As a class we have the right to be proud, for we have in-
augurated several new customs. One of them was our method of
creating greater friendship between teacher and student, as wit-
ness the several affairs of the Senior Science Department
throughout the year. Another was the republication of a monthly
school paper and establishing an exchange with other schools.
Our hats are off to the staff of the "Maroon and NVhite."
Then, too, we have the right to be proud of our athletic
activities. The Class of '17 has furnished more athletes than any
other class since the Altoona High School has been established.
This is a remarkable record. It has been the cause, too, of a
most successful season in all lines, a11d one sport was renewed
last fall that had not been heard of for many years in this school.
We refer to football. It is true only one game was played, but it
was a start, at least, and now it is up to the following classes to
carry it along to a further success and to bring our dear old Alma
Mater to a standing of importance among the secondary schools
lk Pk if 'F if il: 'F PF ll'
Then we havde to thank the School Board for increased ath-
letic facilities. Ry securing a gymnasium they have placed Al-
toona High School on the map as a school Hrst not only in
scholastic instruction, but Hrst in athletics. May the following
classes keep this record just as clean. ,

In the social sphere, finally, we have not been outclassed.
Starting early in our Junior year, a succession of events took
place that will long be remembered by every one there. In our
Senior year many receptions and dances were held, until at last
the time passed swiftly toward Commencement and our final
departure from the A. H. S.

OT more than a quarter of a century ago, there began to
spring forth upon the scene of human action a portion of
the human creation which was destined to attain a notable posi-
tion in the trend of human affairs. That representation of the
human creation is known today as the Class of '1T. It was after
we had discarded our long dresses and baby shoes that we began
to prepare to play our part on the stage of life. The Goddess of
Fate has done wonders to help the progress of humanity, but
when, through her undiscovered artiiices, she succeeded in the
uniting for further preparation those honorable personages who
compose the Class of '17-when she had done this, I repeat, she
accomplished one of the finally decisive steps in the progress of
socialistic achievements, for this class, besides its bright hope for
a glorious future has recorded itself in the social and educational
history of the last four years.
In the autumn of the memorable year 1913, when the summer
sun was retreating to a more favorable region to the south, we
entered the monstrous halls of this, our Alma Mater, to begin our
primary course in preparation for our respective parts on the stage
aforementioned. lYell do I remember that First yearg a year of
work and yet a year of play 3 one of failures and yet characterized
by success. The early days of that year were stamped in the
memories of all by an unconquerable sense of fearg we doubted
our ability to cope with the big things of life-which included
dictionaries and certain men. Nevertheless, through all the trials
of that year of introduction. with all the fears of authority in the
persons of Seniors and teachers, through all this, I say, we lived
successfully, like the frontiersmen of '48, in forging a passage
through the unknown regions.

1914-15-Our Sophomore year was really but a continuation
of the preceding year. As a matter of fact, the introduction time
was past, and we strutted through the halls with as much dignity
as that intended to be conveyed by the most humble of the faculty.

The beginning of the war was not the only great historical
event that marked this particular year apart as different from its
fellows. October shall ever be remembered as the month of the
momentous botanical expedition to Brush mountain, an event of
school-wide importance. A second expedition of the same nature
to that beautiful place known as Lakemont Park also set forth
the remarkable conditions by which we were surrounded. These
unusual events were scarcely impressed upon our minds till the
honeysuckles and "skippers" proclaimed the term's end.

Then, on the seventh day of September, 1915, began the real
history of our high school life-social and intellectual. XYe were

impeded our flights by "Here, boy!" but he called his sheep by

say we were real students. And then the leaders of the Class of
'17 began to appear, we saw and heard our orators-the future
presidents 5 we listened intensely to the theories advanced by our
scientists, we gazed in wonder as cards and coins disappeared at
the motions of our magicians, and the lawyers, theologians and
poets sprang into prominence.

And then, on October 2, 1916, we entered upon the last lap
of our sojourn in our Alma Mater. This was the only really
important year of our life. After a peaceful period of several
months our boys were suddenly aware of a strange vision before
their startled gaze. One day the girls took it into their heads to
become Freshies again-in appearance since they could not in
fact. S0 they let their hair, which had been done up beautifully
before, loose again, with the aforementioned result. And, not to
be outdone, the boys next day appeared in Picadilly and Buster

Not much later the Juniors desired to declare to the rest of
the school that they were still present. Deeming the posting of
notices to be the best method of securing their ends, the Juniors
greeted Mr. Robb and teachers and students one morning with
green " '18's" painted on the sidewalks around the school and
with a maroon " '18 " painted on a white cloth flying serenely
from the top of the chapel roof. Here was a time for action, so
our president climbed up the roof and brought the banner down.
and in ten minutes every Senior boy had a piece of that flag. We
were desirous of and intent upon wearing those pieces into
chapel, but upon being kindly warned of the consequences, we
said we would think it over. The pieces were NCT worn. How-
ever, we had one satisfaction. Shortly afterward the stores near
the school were being scoured for turpentine and scrub brushes-
by Juniors-and, as I said, we had the satisfaction of seeing the
Juniors scrubbing the pavement about the school. That sight
alone compensated us for our not being able to wear the frag-
ments of flag.

So now, at this the close of our Senior year and of our High
School pleasures, we turn our memories backward and review
the past year's life. Society has flourishedg smokers, parties,
dances, receptions, and the final picnic have served to unite the
Class of '17 by ties of friendship. The class may be said to have
established the school paper, "The Maroon and White", this act
alone has served to elevate our standing among other schools.
In athletics, '17 stands supreme, with three stars to our credit on
the basket ball team and many more on the base ball team. And
in general intellectual ability, according to some of the faculty, we
have equalled any of our predecessors. Taking our past as a
picture of the future, we can imagine unheard of successes for
the Class of '17-successes engendered by the past four years of
fellowship and good will.

"So I dipt into,the Future
Far as human eye could see."
At the close of the season of 1927 we were having an i1n-
promptu box party at the new Albright Theatre. The show was
a hit and Tessie had a leading dancing part. So the party was
a miniature class reunion. Comment was started by the general
praise of Lowder's Orchestra, which was under the capable leader-
ship of Morris himself.
just then the Gables drifted down the aisle, and a few min-
utes afterwards the Allens and Davises, much absorbed in each
other. That started the talk in earnest. Every one contributed
to the conversation.

for the best Chautauqua out, and "Ed" Felty has the old Castle
House open, making New York go dance mad again. Catherine
Shaffer is managing the American shop of Lady Duff Gordon.
Pearl Deeter's curls put an idea into her head and now she is a
famous hair-dresser, and in the athletic world we are represented
by Walter Irwin, coach for the Yale Varsity Foot Ball Team, and
by john McNelis, pitcher for the Athletics. Then Marjorie
Sellers is head of the Modern Language Department of the Phil--
adelphia schools, and Louise Sisley has succeeded "Kitty" Stier
as a teacher of modern dances. Violet Cox has joined the ranks
of the school marins and is now teaching in Pittsburg. Robert
Moore is the newly elected City Manager of New York, while in
the same city George Meyers is increasing his fame as a temper-
ance lecturer. Mrs. I. Isenberg, nec Theo. McEldowney, was the
first member of our class to be married.
James Morgan is the youngest judge on the bench, and
Homer Replogleis career as a lawyer has been exceptionally bril-
liant. His first defense was a chef d'aeut'I'e of oratory. And, oh,
yes. there's "Bob" Zimmers holding down a Latin professorship

ACH year the progress of music at the Altoona High School
'I is manifested through the various musical organizations.
As a medium of publicity there is no better agent than the music
of our institution. Our frequent visitors see us in a student body
only during our chapel service. The music of that service is the
only work of our school that is observed by the public. For this
reason this phase of our school work should be at its best at all
times. Realizing as we do that in the four years spent in ou:
Alma Mater we have perhaps failed to reach the standard toward
which we aimed, yet we feel that our class has played her part
well in the musical life of the school. It is for the under classmen
to profit by our failings and to take up the task where we have
The orchestra of 1916-17 was beyond a doubt more evenly
balanced than ever before. NVith a larger instrumentation than in
former years, it was possible to play several musical compositions
with pleasing results. Another new feature of the orchestra is
the fact that our conductor is a member of the faculty-Mr.
Sharp has from the beginning of our school year shown his musi-
cal ability as our director. Coming to us as a perfect stranger,
he has organized the talent of our school into a commendable
musical body. Our school should feel doubly proud of its instru-
mental music this year, because besides a first orchestra, we can
also boast of possessing a second orchestra. During the winter
months our chapel services were varied by the music of this sec-
ond orchestra. Through the training they have received they will
stand ready to be substituted for those who go out this year.
One of the Hrst things the orchestra did was to organize and
elect officers. The result of this election was: Harold Moore,
president, Paul Gleichert, managerg joseph Fay, treasurer, and
Sara Plette, secretary.
On special occasions and at certain intervals the school has
been entertained with musical numbers by the orchestra. They
have always been selections of high standard and appropriate for
The 27th of April witnessed the combined musical organiza-
tions. including the chorus and glee clubs and orchestra, come
together in a splendid rendition of good musical numbers. The
concert opened with a march from the opera "Aida," Wihile the
orchestra was playing this selection, the chorus came to the stage.
Under the splendid leadership of Miss Rollins, supervisor of
music, our silver-throated song birds performed their parts with
fine talent and skill. Selections by the Boys' and Girls' Glee
Clubs followed and delighted the audience. Catherine Zeth.
reader, and Robert Leman, violinist, assisted in the evening's
entertainment. Miss Zeth gave one of James W'hitcomb Riley's
bear stories as she alone can do. She was on the program for
only one selection, but was forced to respond to the enthusiastic
encore. Robert Leman played as we had never before heard him
play. His splendid technique predicts a brilliant career for him.
He also was forced to play a second number.
The chorus has rendered faithful service during the past
year. Under the guidance of Miss Rollins' baton they have led
the song service during the chapel period. On holidays they have
entertained us with numerous vocal selections.
Miss Rose Lenson seems to be the prima donna of our class.
On the night of the Senior Girls' Reception to the Senior Boys.
,she delighted her audience with "The Old Refrain." XYith loud
applause she was called back and sang "just a Longing for You."
Esther Eberle, Harry XVhite, and Howard Thompson. who
have all taken solo parts in our musical programs, we are also
proud to own as members of the Class of 'l7.
The classes which come after us will have the advantage of
hearing a splendid Victrola. On April 12, the Hood College Girls
gave a concert which was well received and enjoyed by a large
audience. The club, under the direction of Henry Ward Pearson,
made a splendid showing and delighted their audience with sev-
eral piano solos as well as classical numbers, an original playlet,
readings, and costume songs. The big feature of the evening was
the singing of their college song, during which all the Hood
alumni who were in the audience arose, showing that Hood is well
represented in Altoona.
We had the pleasure of hearing Mrs. Brumbaugh, of Harris-
burg, who sang several selections for us and delighted us with an
encore. She received deafening applause.
The band is slowly but surely coming into its own in the
Altoona High School. It deserves a great deal of praise for the
spirit it put into our team during the basket ball season just past.
VVho is there with feeling so dead that he's not aroused when the
band strikes up the lively strains of the "Old Gray Mareu? Our
band had one trip this last year. Those who were at me game in
Johnstown remember what a splendid "noise" they produced.
But our fellows have not been trained to play only "ruff stuff."
Several times during the term we have heard them play for our
chapel service. This is where the brass section shines. for each
time they first played the hymns over alone. VVe all enjoyed
their music and wished for more.
The uniforms for the band as yet are somewhere in the dim
distance, but with a little more work and a lot more 'igreenbacksu
those uniforms will become less visionary and more realistic.

HE record of the Class of Nineteen Hundred Seventeen has
I been very brilliant in social affairs. Early in the Junior year
the first dance was held on the second floor of the Vtfolf building.
Mention of it brings back fond memories and worries, for to
many it was their first dance. The highly polished floor covered
with chunks of tallow and the dreamy music of the Andy Ettle-
man Pep Orchestra proved dancing to be a real art. Those who
had two reasons for not responding to the advances of the musi-
cians, brought forth a billiard table from somewhere and amused
themselves dropping the balls into the pockets and making bad
One dance was not enough, so three more at different inter-
vals and after several weeks of agitation on the part of persistent
ticket sellers, were arranged at the attractive quarters of the Al-
toona Social Center. These were all well attended, which showed
that the class had early taken a hunch from the museum mummy
who has not had any fun for over five thousand years.
In June the "song of the wind in the rippling wheat" is heard
and "the lilt of the brook under rock and vine." The honey bees
which were tipsy upon the nectar of the locust blossoms in May
are divinely drunk in the red clover, buzzing a merry tune to the
glory of peace and plenty. The mocking bird has become a busy
housewife, teaching a nestful of downy birds table manners and
the difference between ferocious and edible insects. and the rudi-
ments of the art of music which is as far as the end of the rainbow
beyond the great composers and the so-called song birds of opera.
In June, when all the world is so fair, our thoughts when
Juniors, naturally turned to picnics. Wopsononock was chosen
for the spot, where the class spent the day, getting back to nature
on the mountain top with fun and frolic and futile efforts to keep
warm around the merry-go-round engine.
Hallowe'en seems to be the official time for masqueraders.
However, the Seniors came to the first dance of the year minus
the masque, but with plenty of new suits and cheap suspenders.
Although stray pieces of corn stalks and dark brown chunks of
ginger bread with blisters on had been scattered artistically oi'
the floor, also on other surrounding points of interest, fox-trotting
held its charm until an early hour.
Once upon a time the polite social function was regardel
merely as a glad and golden opportunity to stand around half the
night in a pair of tight shoes and swap views on the weather or
get an overdose of potato salad with machine oil on it. llut when
the Senior Reception on February 1 was held, the whole class
A delightful little sketch entitled "Quits" was presented to an
eager audience. The leading lady, called the Preceptress, wore a
dress that had been fed into the jaws of a slow-geared sewing
machine that Was hard to pedal, but she was proud and huffy.
nevertheless. The leading man, Fred Olney by name, wore a
twenty-five cent white bow necktie and rightat an exciting mo-
ment it broke loose and tried to get up around his ears. It failed
to do this, however, and finally compromised by riding the top of
his collar both fore and aft. But he was as happy as though hc
had on a high-priced neck tie guaranteed not to break loose from
its moorings. It isn't the tie that makes the actor, anyhow.
After delicious eats had been servedpin the banquet hall the rest
of the evening was spent in dancing.
The reception was a grand success, from President Davis'
ingenious plan of getting the girls home safely to the coffee which
appeared to be like muddy water. lint the chairman of the Social
Committee explained that it was "ground" before it was made!
The students on the Social Com.mittee, although they had each
told their' friends and relatives just 468 times that they were
members and always looked modest when their achievements
were mentioned, yearned after more publicity. At a secret meet-
ing they decided to hold a dance at Russell's on March 23, and to
have leather programs, with purple pencils, a drove of long-hairel
musicians who had never been curried, a luncheon served in the
French language, two colored men to stand at the door and an-
nounce the names, and to let the welkin ring the neck of any per-
spiring undergraduate who would try to get in. Did you get all
this? I hope you did. The Social Committee didn't. Immedi-
ately they set out to obtain the necessary money, but only suc-
ceeded in raising 31.50 and the ire of their parents.
However, all the class enjoyed the dance and each one read
the names on the back of the programs. Among the prettiest girls
in the room was Edward F elty-at least among them every time
I saw him.
During this year three Senior smokers were held at Russell's.
The main parts of these meetings were the speeches and ban-
quets. Many elevating subjects were discussed, such as: "Cigar-
ettes and How to Use Them." Bright and catchy tables of gov-
ernment statistics were read, showing the increased growth of the
paregoric industry in the United States as compared with the
increased number of infants during the same period. Sensational
and thrilling booklets on the prevalence of epileptic fits among
poultry and the thousand-legged worm were passed around. Pete
Fox was the sensation of the First meeting, when he gave his
immortal thesis on "How to Make a Hen Lay, and Other Feats of
An alarming condition arose one morning. when the Senior
Girls swept all ancient traditions to the four winds and decided
to hold their entertainment for the Senior Boys iirst. These
social functions clog the wheels of education and wear out every-
body, from the High School janitor, Hen, to the most brainy
and intellectual watchman that ever slept at his post. The girls,
undaunted, however. hurried home to write out countless pro-
grams and invitations and also to hunt up the family atlas to dis-
cover the countries and their capitals. Hut in many homes their
thoughtful little brothers and sisters had been ahead of them and
had had a light over the worthy atlas. Reason had fled and in
departing had left the United States and Mexico hopelessly di-
vided, with war-stricken Germany torn out by the roots. all Gaul
divided into three parts, the barren deserts of Africa tiezl to the
tail of a cat, and a reign of terror and blackberry jam raging up
and down the entire Mississippi valley.
But the boys came, and the Reception Committee descended
upon the unsuspecting eighty-seven delegates and pinned colors,
cards, and remarks about the weather on their freshly-pressed
suits. They were then invited to discover the ink and light well.
Then a tall, heroic youth struggled for the stairs and with a big
megaphone and a clean shirt informed the admiring groups that
the worst was yet to begin in the auditorium.
The stage was gorgeous, for it was covered with the High
School beauties seated in a large semi-circle, with their sweet
smiles and new shoes and all wrapped in domestic science, ath-
letics, agriculture, forestry, etc. Ah! lt was a most impressive
sight. Then one of the girls insisted on singing. She sang on
A brave violinist next sallied forth and with a stout heart
and only three strings melted the souls of all that were in sight of
Three beautiful readings followed hard on the heels of each
other on educational subjects varying anywhere from bears and
pirate stories to a goose with one leg. i
Two graceful dancers with dainty dresses and tight shoes
appeared next. They tried to persuade the eager audience with
full arm and foot movements that they were "Coming Through
the Rye." llut as all the rye had been put in the punch, they had
hard work, for the audience would not believe it. The program
was completed when an imitation little Dutch boy with wooden
shoes and a pair of pants with several patches grafted on them
beautifully demonstrated the Netherland Hop.
After the performance all journeyed down stairs with a
dainty appetite and later returned with acute indigestion. The
rest of the evening was spent in fox trotting. until Professor
Robb stopped the music.
The Senior Boys. after repeated attempts to arrange a sta-
tionary date. decided to have a Senior Vaudeville Show on Tues-
day, April 2-L. They informed the girls on the day before that as
they wanted to save themselves the labor, and that as the printing
machine was broken, they would omit sending written invitations.
XVhen the girls arrived large silk flags and generous bouquets
of sweet peas were presented them at the entrance. They were
then told to enter the auditorium, where Mr. Sharp had the or-
chestra coralled. After repeated efforts to get the chord, he
threw open the window to get the air. At 8.30 P, M., Gloom,
after being borne to the stage amid the muffled sobs of the pall-
bearers, undertaker, and the minister, whose faces resembled ani-
mated gravestones, was buried somewhat roughly, leaving joy
and Mirth to dominate the evening.
After giving full instructions to the ushers when to start the
applause, a brave youth with a speak-easy tongue and an extra
shirt ascended the rostrum and, with one arm in the bosom of his
forty-five-inch vest and the other wandering aimlessly through
space, delivered a wonderful introduction, with gestures attached.
for his great master, Prof. G. O. P. Fox, L. C. D., Ph. D., G. C. D.
The professor appeared to be a mild creature-one who sits
around in a corner by himself and thinks things over in dead lan-
guages. Nevertheless he pulled some startling feats of scientific
magic that would deceive the eye of any potato, even if it didn't
want him to.
Next came Prima Donna Sawtelle. Sawtelle used to be a
good fellow until he contracted a serious case of musical talent.
Some false friend told Harold that he had a voice, a regular bari-
tone, I believe they called it,' that would look well on a Frenchman
with long hair, and from that moment his mind seemed to totter.
He used to get up at 4 o'clock every morning and sing "Free as a
Bird" in his bare feet. till his parents secretly hoped that he would
get a mouthful of words caught in his throat some time and
strangle on them before competent help could arrive. But never-
theless he sang very well.
The curtain then arose upon a dainty tragedy. A maid was
discovered dusting off the scenery. During her weary hours of
toil she secretly yearned for the day when she could demonstrate
.,,g.5.,,,, .,,, ,ve
home-made soup to some Romeo who could supply her with three
rooms and a picture of Lincoln. But she was not to live thus. A
treacherous villain, with a string of murders fastened to his credit.
entered upon her innocent young life, and demanded a kiss for his
trouble. She was saved, however, from this humiliating scene by
a powerful hero who had started out in life with a vest that had
grown too short for him in the waist, but by dint of perseverance,
punctuality, perspectibility, pertinacity and perspecuity, had won
a deathless love from Trilby and demonstrated it with a half
Nelson round the neck. The villain was assisted by the villainess,
an infatuating beauty with a white dress and a red wig. Together
they laid out their plans like an undertaker. It was a deep plot.
The Countess of the House of Spondulix was the real mother oi
Trilby, although she was now acting as an Abigail to the Countess.
The villain had stolen her from her parents when she was a
young babe, and now she had nothing but a poor memory and a
cheap necklace to remember the incident. Fellow sufferers, if
you have tears to shed get your shedder ready. W'hile the
Countess was relating her history in a sad minor key, aided by
the tune "Hearts and Flowers," played by a rising young genius
with but one of his fingers, the low-cut villain and bewitching
villainess entered, and with cruel hearts and a piece of garden
hose, struck the conntess a deadly blow. The air was rent in
twain by a wild shout, which sounded as though some one were
being murdered with a dull pair of shears or a garden hoe, and a
meek voice exclaimed: "NVhy, you mean things! You tried to
murder me!" It was a thrilling moment. Trilby rushed in and
placed the blame on the villain, who threw it off and put it on the
villainess. But just then our hero rushed in.
"What is the trouble P" he yelled, and grabbed Trilby in his
"T hey have murdered the Countess," sobbed Trilby. "But I
know you won't let them do it."
"No, Trilby. Even though I have a limited education and an
uncle who works in a laundry, I will light to the finish."
The villain, after he has taken a fatal dose of poison by mis-
take, and sees that he is going to die, rather than be taken alive,
shoots himself. The villainess then falls over his dead body, her-
self killed in the general melee.
As no scientist has yet discovered how far you will have to
drop a feather to break a two-dollar bill, you will have to draw
your own conclusion.
The party ended after the students had eaten everything but
the pictures on the wall and had danced their fill.
After this the students settled down to get a firmer grip on
their credits until June, when our 'final social events, the picnic
and banquet, were held.
VVe have Miss Helen Gehret to thank for the art design at
the head of this department.

E have with us in the enterprising Class of 11117. one who has won so
many laurels, both in cage and on track, that we can find no better
way of showing our deep appreciation of his achievements than to
dedicate this page to him-VValter Irwin.
At forward, i11 the years '15 and '11i, he displayed such marvelous
speed, such an abundance of lighting spirit that he was unanimously chosen
captain of the A. H. S. Basket llall team of '17. It was under his calm. yet
mighty, leadership, his never-give-up spirit, and his splendid headwork, that
the team of the season past was enabled to win twenty-tive out of twenty-
seven starts, and the championship of the P. I. A. A.
But, although his llasket Ball record totally eclipses any other ever
made by an A. H. S. student, his record on the track is equally as good.
Starting as a Freshman in track activities, he has made the team for four
successive years, and each year earned his letter. Last year. had it not been
for Irwin. the A. H. S. would have descended into utter oblivion in track
circles. He was the track team of the year '1Ii.
We are proud to have Walter Irwin as a member of our Class of 1917,
and we can but hail him with the hearty cheers of fellow classmates, as the
greatest athlete that ever wore the Maroon and White.

The basket ball team of A. H. S. for 1916-17 was, from start
to finish, the greatest team that ever wore the Maroon and W'hite.
More records were established and more traditions broken by
their marvelous passing, shooting, and team work than ever before
in the history of the school. Starting in the latter part of Decem-
ber, with neither practice nor coaching, they went through the
hardest schedule a High School could possibly have had, and
then twenty-live wins out of twenty-seven starts won for them
the title "Champions of the State of Pennsylvaniaf, Here we
On December 27, before a handful of fans in the St. Luke's
Gym, the successful season was launched, almost at the cost of
defeat. There had been no practice, no coaching, in fact, the
team had not been together since last season. But through the
hard playing of the boys, individually, we met and defeated the
first challenger, who, by the way, was none other than our old
foe, Hollidaysburg. Those present had little hopes of there being
anything but an unsuccessful season this year. But those who
knew only said, "Wait till they get together."
At the end of the Christmas season the boys returned to their
duties with the one determination to get down to good, hard, stiff
practice and bring the team up to what it ought to be. They were
met by Mr. Sharadin, who had been selected as coach. The work
was started. Many anxious nights for those involved followed,
might add that the credit of the successful season is attributed to
the efforts in the years '14, '15, '16 of Coaches Hargraves and
Roberts for producing such players as represented the Maroon
and White this year. It is our only regret that they were not
present to share the glory of victory. iVe cannot be too loud nor
long in our praise of them, the two coaches that had the A.-H. S.
at heart. VVith four regulars and as many subs from last year's
VVestern Pennsylvania Champions, Coach A. J. Sharadin had his
work already started for him. The team was there, all that was
needed was coaching and practice.
but after much shifting around, the veterans held their own. The
team picked for the first trip was as follows: Capt. Irwin and
Healey, forwards 3 the center position was awarded to Braucher,
formerly center of Juniata High School, while to Dietrick and
Vaughn went to the defensive work.
But, alas! hopes for a clear record were banished. DuBois
handed us such a stinging defeat that it could only be swallowed
rightly after a few tears had been shed. The team claims this
defeat was similar to that of the'Light Brigade when they made
their famous chargeg for the referee was to the right of them, to
the left of them, and in front of them with but one aim-to call
fouls every time an Altoonan touched the ball. But the next night
this defeat was counterbalanced by a victory which showed what
material the Mountain City boys were made of. They defeated
Punxsutawney on Punxsy's own floor, something which, 'tis said,
has never been accomplished by any other High School.
The following XVednesday, amid the blare of the band and the
ceaseless yells from the cheering section, the season was opened
rightly at home. Huntingdon was the victim, and although they
were easily downed, the boys lacked the pep and the team work
necessary. There was no spirit displayed. Friday of that week
Tyrone was humbled by a somewhat close score on their own
But the paths of victory seemed to lead but to defeat, for the
following week the second snag was encountered. VVe were
torpedoed, and, after forty minutes of struggling, finally sunk by
a "U boat" run by the Hollidaysburgers. The torpedo was none
other than the "burgers " sterling referee, Mr. Fuller. But again
the listlessness of our team was evident, and this time it spelled
defeat. Something must be done. Many things were suggested.
new plays tried, but of no avail. Then came the change, the
change that made ours a winning team. Irwin went to guard and
Vaughn to forward. It was this lineup that won the champion-
ship. XYilliamsport was the first to meet the revised team, and
great was the poor lililltowners' fall, for they were completely
The following week came a two-day trip, the results of which
were two more victories. At Robertsdale they met a husky bunch
of miners, and although there was some talk as to how these boys
could dig something that rhymed with goal, they could not dig
through our guards often enough to down the Altoonans. Juniata
College Reserves were met the following night. Those who saw
the collegians play in our gym will stand by the statement that
they had Irwin's men outweighed by fifteen pounds. But obsta-
cles had no weight with them, and when the smoke of battle had
cleared away they were once more on the heavy end of the score.
Four days later, on our fioor, after somewhat of a scare, the .lum-
ata boys were downed again.
Then came something which made the fans wake up.
Friday, the 9th of February, the wearers of the Maroon and
XVhite, accompanied by the band and 300 enthusiastic rooters,
invaded the city of Johnstown, with the result that the poor
Johnnies were completely mauled to a standstill. Neither their
brilliant football tackles nor their persistent tistic tactics could
stop our boys from making goals. XVhen the final whistle had
blown they had beaten the johnnies on their own floorg almost an
impossible thing to do. Next week with a sub-team Tyrone was
easily defeated. Huntingdon proved another easy victory. The
following day the coach sprung a surprise. VVhen the game was
called with Chambersburg a whole sub-team was put in. There
was much comment fro-m the stand, and the cries became louder
for "The team! The team !" but the regulars were nowhere to be
found. The half ended 14 to 4 in favor of Chambersburg. When
the second half started, the regulars, tired out from the hard game
the night before, had to not only defeat Chambersburg, but over-
come a ten-point lead. Could they do it? The game ended
A. H. S. 35, Chambersburg 23, while the score of the half was Bl
to 9 in favor of the locals.
Next came the inevitable. Something was accomplished that
few High Schools can boast of. Five straight games were won
in five days on five foreign floors. Tuesday, February 20, after a
grand send-off, the team started on its big trip. Lewistown was
the first to meet the onslaughtg in direct order the strong Ship-
pensburg Normal five went under. Next came Chambersburg.
Here the fouling and blocking of the Chambersburg Five almost
overwhelmed the Altoonans, and had it not been for the fair
BASKET BALL TEAM
referee the story might have been different. At Hagerstown the
town team suffered defeat for the first time. Then the final game.
Could they make a clean sweep of the five? It was a tired group
of warriors that wore the Maroon and W'hite that night. XVaynes-
boro had seventeen straight victories. They also boasted that
they had never been defeated in their own "back yard." The half
ended 14 to 11 against our boys. Then came a conference, the
result of which was that the Cumberland Valley boys beat them-
selves. Time and time again Irwin and Dietrick received knees,
elbows, slaps in the face for which Pat dropped in fouls. The
Wiaynesboro boys lost their goats plus the game, and Altoona won
their last game of the trip. The next day when the boys returned
they received so many hugs, slaps on the back, handshakes, and, it
might be added, kisses, that they were almost completely smoth-
ered. They had put the A. H. S. on the basket ball map.
It took several bottles of liniment plus many hours of rubbing
before they were able to get into shape for their next game, but
they were brought around in such shape that Lewistown was held
without a field goal. Twenty-four hours later Wfindber was lined
up against the Altoonans on VVindber's floor. It has always been
a tradition that Windber is Altoona's Jonahg but not so with this
A. H. S. team, for again we came out on the heavy end of the
But one feat was no more than accomplished until another
one was brought up. Now came the cry, UB-eat Johnstown again.
Beat Johnstown again." So great was the crowd that it was
decided that Y. M. A. Hall, thelargest in the city, would have to
be used. Long before the appointed time the large hall was filled
to its capacity and many were being turned away. The Maroon
and VVhite was in a blaze of glory that night and dare not suffer
defeat. Away with traditions! "This is our year," was the senti-
ment. XYe must win. lfVin we did, for at no time in the game
could the poor .lohnnies get their heads above the water. Down
they went to defeat, thanks to the wonderful fouling ability they
had acquired. They committed just one foul every minute.
A week later we met Willianisport on their own Hoor. It
seemed the Billtowners had found our weak spot, for with six
minutes to play they had the "Sharadinites" 26 to 16. Then came
the rally. The Cherry and VVhite were so surprised that before
they came to their senses the final whistle blew and A. H. S. was
victorious with a score of to 28. Vtfhile the Billtowners were
waking up, Vaughn had counted five from the field and Pat two
with four fouls by the latter. Windber the following week made
But now since the season was fast coming to a close a cham-
pionship had to be decided. Since their victory over the Al-
toonans, Hollidaysburg had been in a state of unrest and now they
came forth with the claim of the championship of Blair County.
It was a challenge readily accepted. And again the Y. M. A. Hall
was packed to its capacity. Wlien all was ready the band struck
up "The Star Spangled Banner," and as the enthusiastic crowd
rose to its feet, the five A. H. S. regulars trotted forth to battle
with small .American flags sewed to the backs of their jerseys. It
was a sight long to be remembered. Ere the strains of the beloved
song had died away there was a swell of confidence in the Maroon
and VVhite ranks, for well they knew that the old flag would never
touch the ground that night. It was agfight from start to finish.
The "burgers" played one of the fastest, cleanest games seen here
thisyear, but their repeated attacks on our boys' defense was of
no avail, for Irwin and Dietrick were impenetrable. Our first
championship and twenty-third victory of the season were won
Friday of that same week the husky cage men from DuBois
were our guests. Iiut they had forgotten their referee, and the
five did not work very well together without the aid of their
sixth man, for they could not keep up with the pace set by the
locals. It was like a wagon trying to run on three wheels. This
game finished our season, the most successful season the A. H. S.
ever played. We were champions of Central Pennsylvania and in
direct line for the championship of the I". I. A. A.
Could the championship be decided? When all contestants
had been eliminated it was found that Reading held the eastern
title, while that of the central and western sections went to Ai-
toona. Negotiations were immediately opened with the Dutch-
inen, and it was finally decided that the championship of the State
should be decided in Altoona on April 3. Once more the big
Y, M. A. Hall was filled. It was a never-to-be-forgotten night.
For the last time Capt. Irwin, Braucher, Dietrick and Davis
would wear the Maroon and White, and as they trotted out 011
the floor the cheering was deafening. Could they win their last
game-the most important of the season? Could they bring a
title to the A. II. S. that it had never held before? Reading had
our boys outweighed and practically outclassed in team work, but
play as they might they could not overcome that never-give-up
spirit so clearly manifested by the Altoonans. They dare not
lose. Half time ended with Altoona leading by a close margin.
Then came some inside "dope,' the "dope" which gave us the
Dutchmen's weak spots. "Billy" Roberts, who was on the side
lines, had noticed holes in the Reading defense, and with the
ability he had shown in former years he mapped out attacks on
their defects. Iie told each player how to work their plays, how
to guard, who to "feed," with the result that ere the following
twenty minutes had elapsed, Altoona was placed on the top rung
of P. I. A. A. basket ball ladder for the first time in history.
Hurrah! The boys had won their last and greatest championship.

A. H. S. to have football! Think of it. after eight long
years of banishment the good old game-the best of all school
games-is once more to be played by the students of the A. H. S.
No longer will the student followers of the gridiron have to sit
back and read of other High Schools having championship teams,
for now is their chance to get out and put the Maroon and Wliite
back to the place where it belongs, foremost in scholastic foot ball
The material for accomplishing such a feat is everywhere

lighting for the supremacy of the gridiron the spirit seemed to
become imbedded in us, and even at the danger of expulsion from
school two teams were formed in our ranks, one from the Indus-
trial class, the other from the General. In early November the
battle royal was staged. It was one never to be forgotten, both
for the game itself and the result it had on the future A. H. S. It
was the final step toward bringing back the long-hoped-for game
of games, foot ball. Although we have never had the chance to

The A. H. S. Base Ball Team of 1917. although of the first
calibre, had not the unlimited success of the Basket Ball Team.
Being set back time after time by bad weather conditions, it was
the middle of April before the team had its first good work out
on the East End Field.
In the middle of March candidates were rallied and practice
was held in St. Luke's gym twice a week. Under the watchful
eye of the coach and also with the application of an unlimited
supply of rub-down. the winter's stiffness was worked out and by
the time "Old Sol" had dried up the mud puddles on the field, the
pitchers and catchers were in true form. john McNelis, '17, was
chosen chief of an effective group of pitchers, while to McGinley,
'19, went the receiving job, making up a perfect Irish battery-
something to be feared. Throughout the year Johnny pitched
excellent ball, and it was only his tightness in pinches that saved
us from several defeats. Braucher, '17, one of High's old iron
men and of Juniata make, was the life around the initial sack.
Vaughn, the junior athlete, performed the "Eddie Collins" stunt
at second. Short stop position was filled by a speedy little man
named Moore, called "Bobby" for short, and his activity plus his
alertness plus his wonderful form won for him much applause
from the stands, especially among the fair fans. Then came
Beswick, '17, the other fourth, also the biggest fourth, of what
could easily be called a Connie Mack S100,000 infield. "Bunk,"
although somewhat affected by his recent illness, was back in true
form, and nothing in the line of hot grounders or line drives ever
got past him. The outer garden was tended to in left by reliable
Capt. Mathias Sanders, '18, clean-up man of the club. Mat's
specialty is home runs and a batting average of round about .500.
In center "Skinny" Hahn got all that looked like possible fence
breakers, while the right end of the patch was superbly tended
by Chas. Harrison, also of '17 class. The subs, always ready for
a chance, were F. McNelis, '19, Harris, '19, and Miller, 'ISL
Although the schedule was somewhat lighter than former
years, when the team did get a chance to perform it certainly dis-
played some excellent ability in its defense of the Maroon and
XVhite. The opening was with Curwensville, a team of huskies
that looked more like a town team than that of a High School.
But with McNelis in the box and Mat there with his home run,
things were rather easy for the A. H. S., and when the nine
rounds had been faithfully fought we came out on the big end-
4-3. Next the boys went up against the strong Lock Haven
Normal team, reputed throughout the state as one of the best in
normal circles, but neither side proved the master and after a
pitchers' duel the argument ended in a tie-3-3. A short time later
the Normal boys invaded the East End Park for the sole purpose
of being treated to a ducking, for after just four innings of fray
with a pitchers' duel on, the game had to be called. The score
was then a tie-4-4. To date this is all the games that have been
played. but there is lots of chance for the team to show what it is
We cannot be too unlimited in our thanks to the Athletic
Committee, which was composed of Messrs. Gaines, Ake, Irvine,
Grimminger, Hammond. Sharadin, Ridenbangh, and Shriner.
Throughout the year they showed their hearty co-operation with
the school, and had it not been for their superior judgment it is
doubtful if our athletics could have been carried on so success-
fully. Many thanks to them. and especially to Mr. Shriner for
the splendid five-day trip arranged for the Ilzisket llall Team this
year. They made things worth while.
Hats off to Homer Replogle. Ile is the one great cheer
leader and with him leading the "Booin-get-a-Boom," the cheering
section could make the rafters in any building creak.
The members of the class of '17 wish to suggest to "Pat"
Healy that he find a more secretive place than a llell's Gap Rail-
road coach and a more appropriate time than 10 A. M. for the
delicate purpose of holding hands with a certain DuBois maiden.
Too much praise cannot be given to Messrs. lleswick and
Hurd. They were there with the goods.
Messrs. Dietrick and "l'uddy" Heess have secured work for
the summer. They are going to pose for a patent medicine com-
pany in a touching scene called "Before and After Taking."
"That letter must have come from a Horal shop," remarked
the postmaster at Waynesboro as he handed oy er a letter to
smiling "Boots" Davis. "It sure smells sweet." How did it hap-
The one handicap of the year was our blushing center's
beauty, and everywhere the team went the girls were after our
poor Larue. In Punxsy there were several girls injured, one seri-
ously, in a rush for him after the game.
A new song is to be used in the A. H. S. from now on.
"Ireland Must Be Heaven, for the Healeys Came from There."
Ireland has no navy, but a company of Irish hand grenadiers
would be something to scare the Teutons. The McNelis-McGin-
ley battery, for instance.
While speaking of the Irish, McCann's Irish cheering section
must be mentioned. They yelled the loudest when Reading got its
It looked like a tragedy. There lay VValt. Irwin all stretched
out and the coach earnestly rubbing him with a rather pale looking
liquid labeled 'AEmbalmer's' Fluid."
The Senior'Class of '17 is thinking of buying a statue of
"The Old Gray Mare," instead of a Minerva.
Vaughn's ability to write love sonnets with Braucher's name
signed to them has caused many a sigh throughout the ranks of
the fair ones.

XYe. the class of 1917, want the business men of Altoona to know that we consider them good "sports." In a period generally con
ceded to be one of business depression and international crisis, they have invested in this publication sufticient advertising to carry it
through. Seldom did our solicitors meet with refusal.
Now can you, the readers of this book, play your part as well as the business men. We ha.ve informed them that we will do
everything possible to make the closing portion of our book attractive. Suppose you break over the traces of tradition and read what
we have to say in our ads.

FTER the usual nmnber of severe blows had been struck by
members of the class in the interests of world progress, a
self-made man, who had fought the battle of life till he was round
shouldered, came in with an armful of diplomas, laid them on the
table and said:
"l'hilosophers and Seers of the Class of 1917, Ladies and
Gentlemen: As the Chairman of the School Board of Pumpkin-
ville, the vast honor has been thrust upon me of presenting these
diplomas to you this evening. After having listened to your pro-
found words of counsel and wisdom, and after having heard
your new and beautiful views of life and success, I feel that there
is probably not much that I can say. XVith your kind permission.
however. I shall try to give you a few of my views on the great
theme of 'Life' as I have found it. You, tonight, are standing on
the threshold of life. as you yourselves have admitted this even-
ing not less than 56-I times, if I have counted' correctly. I have
greatly enjoyed listening to your lavender-colored essays and
your orations with perfumery on them, and, I presume, as you
sit here with your new shoes on and gaze out upon life as far as
the eye can see, you imagine that it will be easy to conquer, and
that it will all be more or less of a rose-tinted dream. Life is not
altogether one grand, ceaseless, free-for-all, open-air picnic. with
a free bus going right ont to the grounds, nor is it made up alto-
gether of moist and mildewed gloom. Life is a mixture of sun-
shine and shadow, pleasure and pain, poetry and poll tax, matri-
mony and measles, pride and porous plasters. The babe in the
cradle today kicks up its heels and laughs and tries to put one foot
in its mouth and has a grand old time, but tonight it will be filled
with sorrow and tincture of paregoric. A boy gets a licking and
a piece of pie and goes to bed to dream of Santa Claus and Satan.
Man stands on the proudest heights of his glory with an onion
poultice on his chest, and full many a poet wears a wreath of
laurel and a liver pad.
"Once, years ago, I stood where you stand tonight. Ah! l
remember how I stood up in my new pants that struck me just
around the shoe-tops and told a vast and eager audience how to
conquer success. But I can see now that it is pretty hard for a
boy with a buttonhole bouquet to step right out and cause much of
an uproar and commotion in the great, waiting world. Tonight
you will take your dear little essay, with its wonderful sugges-
tions for haltering success, and you will fold it up and tie a pretty
double-bow knot around its waist and lay it away in a quiet place
and sprinkle sachet powder on it, and then, tomorrow, you will
start out into the world. Then, some day, after you have had a
few hand-to-hand scufiies with the world, in which you have not
succeeded in doing any great and irreparable damage to the
world, you will get out your cream-colored essay and read it all
over in a quiet, subdued tone of voice, and then you will note, as I
have been observing, that it is one thing to sit here on this plat-
form, surrounded by rose-geraniums and members of the faculty,
and make plans with soft, oriental fringe on them, but it is quite
another thing to step forth and carry them out.
"But stick to your dreams. Nearly every great man was
once a boy with a dream, and the reason the dream came true was
because he stuck to it and was not disheartened or turned aside
by ridicule of spring hats. If you have hitched your wagon to a
star, let nothing dismay you."

CENTRAL TATE ORMAL SCHOOL
The Central State Normal School is more easily reached by Altoona and Blair County students than
any other school in the state. Through trains between Altoona and Lock Haven make it very convenient for students
who wish to spend an occasional week-end at home.
The Central State Normal School has its course of study so arranged that the maximum amount of professional
work is given.
The Central State Normal School graduates are in great demand because superintendents know that all these
graduates have done one whole year of practice teaching under the supervision of critic teachers and in addition that
they have received special training in rural school problems.
The Central State Normal School has high standing professionally because all of the instruction is given by
instructors who have made special preparation for the snbjects they teach. All the senior and junior classes are
taught by the heads of the different departments.
The Central State Normal School offers the very best Teachers' Course at the least expense. There are no
The Central State Normal School offers special courses in Music, Domestic Science, Art, Kindergarten,
Expression and Business. It is possible for a good student to take a regular Normal course and at the same time do
some work in a special course.
The Central State Normal School is so situated that few places excel it in picturesqueness of scenery. It is
supplied with an abundance of pure mountain water. The rooms in the dormitories have lots of light and are neat and
cheerful. The health of students is exceptionally good.
The Central State Normal School is a most excellent school for one who is preparing for the teaching pro-
fession. All of last year's graduates have schools and many more could have been placed in desirable positions.
