By the flowing Vtfissahickon
In the outskirts of old Ambler,
On a hilltop bright and sunny,
Stands a famous institution.
Red its gables as in story,
Dear to those so happy ones
Who from it have graduated,
Loved by those who still attend it,
But no more esteemed or honored
Than by those who now are parting
From its classrooms, all so mindful
Of event in memory founded,
Of true friends who now are parting.
For, there, every wall familiar
Calls up joyful pictures painted
On our souls in brilliant colors
By the passing days so happy
Filled with comrades, books and sunlight,
Sports of field, sage, and gridiron,
Clubs, committees, operettas,
Plays in Spanish, French, and English,
"Pinnacle" with poems and stories
Dear old High School publication,
By such joys e'er occupied '
And with others oft connected
Roam we through those charmed hallways
Cool and fragrant eien at noonday.
Four short years have thus sped onward
Hurried by in happy singing
For the Blue and Golden banners
Of this little, joyous worldg
In the morning going to Chapel
Singing new and ancient lays
Saddest songs with thoughts the sweetest
Then to classrooms bright with sunlight
To discuss with pals and teachers
Works of olden, honored sagesg
To solve illusive mathematics
That conquered give us satisfactiong
To learn the languages of Europe,
Romantic stories in them writteng
To read those longfdead Latin verses
Surprising in their modern viewpoints:
To comprehend the works of science
Fathomless and fascinating.
There are tasks that oft grow duller
As the sun outside is shining
When the summer days arriving
Draw us out to sports, like tennis,
Then we sigh with endless longing.
Books, however we may love them,
Can no longer hold our interest
But this school, this spring, is dearer '
Than it has e'er been before
For we're leaving it forever,
Teachers, pals and pleasant comrades,
Friends all made in days so perfect
That our school we leave in sadness
We, whom its teachings shall sustain.

June 8, 1933.
My Dear B-,
The oddest thing happened to me the other day. It was the day after our
class reunion. I was sitting all alone in the garden, feeling rather blue over the
fact that I hadn't been able to get there. Suddenly I felt as if I were in the midst
of friends, then I heard a soft voice speaking to me. I looked all around, but could
see no one at f1rst. Presently I discovered a small figure sitting on a rose nearby.
It seemed very familiar and for a few seconds I wondered where I had seen it before.
Then I recognized it as the Brownie of our class year book.
He was smiling brightly. "Come, don't look so sad," he said. "I can tell you
what you want to know. Close your eyes and listen carefully." I did so and he
began to speak in a low monotone. His tone was so drowsy and hisf descriptions so
realistic that I seemed transported to the places he described. His voice drifted
farther away, and I seemed to be in Africa, near a ruin on the border of a jungle,
where a party of tourists had stopped. I was startled to see a lion rush from among
the trees toward the party who seemed to be unarmed.
All fled but one young woman who fainted at the sight. just as the lion was
about to spring on her prostrate form, a young man opened a case which he was
carrying and took from it a gleaming instrument. He began to play, and behold! it
was a saxophone. Never had I heard such music since I left high school. It inspired
me with a desire to dance. The lion seemed to be affected the same way for he paid
no more attention to his victim but began that quaint old dance, the Charleston. I
looked more closely at the man who had wrought this miracle. It was Bud Snell.
Another of the tourists having the appearance of' a doctor returned and began
to administer to the girl who in a few moments was revived. The doctor proved to
be Morris Pollon, now famous.
The party returned to Cairo leaving the lion still under the spell of the music.
That evening they went to see a boxing match where our former classmate "Kid"
Delaney, knocked out Gene Tunney in the 13th round. Later on the way home from
the iight they discussed a new figure in the literary world, the greatest short story
writer of the age, Miss Ruth Marchant, equaled at times by Fannie Hurst.
The Brownie's droning voice went on, next to Italy. A crowded music hall
in Florence was all attention to the famous Madame Galli Curci, accompanied by
the no less famous Frances Cohen. In the audience were Nellie Tenbrook and' her
friend Mrs. Lilly S. Mechanic who was celebrating her fifth wedding aniversary
by a tour of Europe. In another part of the city was Ethel Gibbs, teaching a night
class in French.
--D-tif effmbler High School Esm-
Our next friends were found at the top of the world. Brownie declares he was
in Alaska yesterday and he found Bertha Edwards teaching Art to the Eskimos.
Jimmy Smith was there too, getting ice for his ice trade next summer.
The Brownie talked about warm weather and Cape May which he had visited
recently. In the Hotel Congress, he saw Lucie Hammond, the chief cook, directing the
cooking and serving those delicious southern dinners. Helen Brosz was doing permaf
nent waving by the seashore in a dozen or so beauty parlors.
At the county court house he saw Judge Wentz dictating to his private secretary,
Alice Worthline, and William Vincent sleepily trimming the judges moustache, which
has developed nicely since we knew him.
The judge was getting ready to try a lollypop case fthe Amendment of 1931
prohibits the distribution of lollypops among childrenj. Harrison Ziegler, head of
a notorious lollypop ring, had been arrested, also Linford Katz, owner of the house
used as a center from which to distribute the candy.
The next case was a question of whether or not to fine George Berry for causing
the police unnecessary trouble. He disappeared about a week ago and was found
finally in the bell of his Bb Helican bass horn, the same one that he used to play in
Since Harry Fisher lived in Cape May and our Brownie was feeling hungry, he
decided to see Harry. He arrived too late for the meal however, for Harry was just
washing the dishes. While he was there someone knocked at the door. It was Bill
Brister, selling magazines to help get his third degree. He told Brownie he'd been
playing a lot of football lately, and had been using an elasto-tweedo football uniform
invented by Thomas Lynch.
Brownie then went to Washinton where he saw Margaret Unger giving a
suffrage speech to a crowd of suffering women. She told him that Gladys Colgan had
been made a drawer in the Bureau of Printing and Engraving and was now Head
He went to Hollywood, it seems, and found that Bob Fay had become a movie
star and Catherine Manns was giving dancing instructions at the Black Bottom School.
He must have known I was growing anxious for home town news because that
is what he told me next.
Ambler now has a large female police force. Mayor Lear has recently appointed
Thelma Adams as head of the force.
Dan Marple has been awarded the five year service stripe at the Montgomery
County Janitors Convention and was the youngest janitor there.
Charles Lee, the famous poultry judge, lost his prize chicken about two weeks
ago, when it escaped from the coup in which he kept it and was run over.
Elizabeth Umstead is writing a book on the Private Life of a Secretary.
--L-if The :Pinnacle jfist-
Frances Scheibner, as Miss Maple Glen, was declared winner of the Ambler
Beauty Contest. She was not awarded the prize however, as the other judges declared
Judge Roberto had showed partiality.
Alice DeWolfe has become a nurse as she wished, but a plant nurse. She has
been known to sit up all night with' a sick plant.
Harold Richmond has established a stand along the main road to Pitcairn's
Aviation Field at Horsham and sells sandwiches andlhot dogs.
Ben Meyers has begun a collection of bugs and flowers, but has grown very
absentfminded. He has been known to put the net in his collection box and wave the
bugs around in the air.
Carl Sabold has gotten married, as we all knew he would, and has become a
He told me that the last time he saw Bill Russell, he was engaged as a bricklayer
and entertained his fellow workmen during the noonfhour by playing on the Jew's
I was suddenly brought back to reality by a dull explosion. I turned to thank
the Brownie for his very cheering information before investigating the noise, but he
was gone. Now isn't that just like a Brownie?
I found out in the evening papers what the noise had been. Gordon Houpt, the
noted chemist, lives near me, as perhaps you know. He had been performing a new
experiment and the mixture blew up. He was not seriously injured.
Brownie told me nothing of Bernese Lee, but I know for a fact that she has
become quite an actress and toured America with her company last winter.
I hope to see you sometime in the future but no one knows when it will be. If
you hear any more about our classmates let me know, as I am always curious to hear
what they are doing.

The band, under the leadership of Mr. George O. Frey of Girard College, has
made excellent progress during the past year.
A Euphonium and Helicon Bass have been added to the instrumentation. The
Euphonium is the gift of Mr. Harvey Gravell, President of The American Chemical
Paint Co. of Ambler. Mr. Gravell stipulated that if Ashley Collis, who was selected
to play the Euphonium, made satisfactory progress, the instrument should become
his at graduation. The band appreciates this generous assistance.
For the remainder of the year five engagements are scheduled:
May 24 and 25, in the High School Auditorium, to precede the Junior High School

During the 1927 hockey season, our girls, coached by Miss Boyles, produced
a team which was defeated only by Springiield, who did not lose a single game. As
the Ambler hockey team has been in existence two years, attempting a full schedule
only the second year, it has high hopes and ambitions for the future.
Alice deWolfe was captain and managerg Anne Parry has been elected manager
for the 1928 season.
The results of the games played are as follows:
