MR. ARTHUR HECKMAN MR. WILLIAM WENTZEL
We, the senior class of 1947, wish to ex-
press our gratitude to our excellent senior
class advisers by dedicating- our yearbook to
Mr. Heckman and Mr. Wfentzel. They have
aided us in all our class projects, have given
unselfishly of their time, and have guided us
in our choice of future careers.
To Mrs. Frederick Schaefer, inappreciation
of unfailing efforts displayed in the compila-
tion of our year-book, we wish to express our
gratitude. The class shall never forget the
hours of labor spent inthe preparation of the
original pageant which made our commence-
ment a memorable occasion. Fleetwood High
School has profited by her efficient work as
a competent librarian and teacher.
Without her excellent guidance the 1947
Claw could not have been published.

A Message from ur Principal
The longer I work in the field of education the more
I am convinced that the chief requisites to success are
the old-fashioned virtues-accuracy, promptness, fidelity,
acceptance of responsibility-the virtues which we often
neglect as out of date. These virtues will last as long as
the multiplication table and alphabet endure. Without
them we can not climb to any position whatsoever.

Since the yearbook's name, Leonian, had lost its significance because the school's
sport teams are now referred to as Tigers rather than Lions, the staff decided to
choose a name that was more appropriate. The Student Council aided by a faculty
committee selected the new title which we are proud to display on our yearbook.

National Honor Society

Society one must possess the qualities of Character, Scholarship, Leadership, and
Service. These qualities are represented by the letters C, S, L, and S, on the emblem

its purpose to bear forward the light of truth, to lead others in the light, and
to keep ever burning in our school a high ambition for the enduring values of life.
Selection of members is made by a special faculty committee, which chooses
five per cent of the junior class and ten per cent of the senior class. Members elected
last year were Betty Snyder, Kathleen Snyder, and Ronald Noll. Seniors elected
this year are Bruce Becker, Pearl Christman, Henry DeTurck, Richard Kline, and
Leon Rothermel. junior members are Marie Burley and Ruth Ann Schaeffer.
The organization is supervised by Mr. Matthew A. Smith.

After undergoing a nation-wide change, the former Girl Reserve organization
is now known as Y-Teens. The new club name has been derived from the Y.W.C.A.
of which it is a sub-division and from the teen-age girls of which it is composed.
The girls are eligible to join the group in their freshman year after undergoing an
initiation determined by the cabinet.
PURPOSE OF THE Y-TEENS
"To build a fellowship of women and girls devoted to the task of realizing
in our common life those ideals of personal and social living to which we are com-
mitted by our faith as Christians.
"In this endeavor we seek to understand jesus, to share His love for all people,
and to grow in the knowledge and love of God."

efforts of Mr. Kieffer. The group is under the jurisdiction of the Y.M.C.A. and

ties are sent. The club pledged one hundred dollars to the world Youth Fund and
sponsored a drive to raise money to send a heifer to Europe. jointly with the Y-Teens,
dances are sponsored after basketball games.
PURPOSE OF HI-Y

age. The principles of the club are formulated by the Y.M.C.A.

advantages. Mr. Trefny directs the group.
The librarians have been both efficient and faithful in their
service to the student body. Throughout the year it was their duty
to take complete charge of the library on assigned days. Their work
consisted of distributing books, compiling circulation statistics,
and dispensing overdue notices.

This year's question for debate was: Resolved: That the federal
government should provide a system of complete medical care
available to all citizens at public expense. Each team's discussion
was divided into three parts: introduction, practicability, and
justifiability. The teams debated the question in the form of a
panel discussion which was followed by an open forum at Kutz-
town, Perry, and Fleetwood High Schools.
The school newspaper, The Red and White, is published by the
carefully selected students who comprise Press Club. For the sec-
ond straight year the members have managed, through blood,
sweat, and tears, to have a printed paper. The expert advisership
of Mrs. Bodolosky and the capable leadership of Kathleen Snyder
have resulted in staff-written sports articles, features, and editorials
which have received high praise.

In November the Library Club featured Tag Day in order to
secure money to enroll the school as a member of the Book of the
Month Club. Book contests in the junior and senior high schools
were sponsored during Book Week. Mrs. Schaefer directs the ac-
tivities of the club.
The purpose of Dramatic Club is not to make actors of the
members but rather to encourage everyone in the improvement of
his self-expression. The club offers the opportunity to develop poise,
self-confidence, and appreciative values. Plays, readings, and skits
were presented to the assembly upon several occasions. The organi-
zation is supervised by Mrs. DeBlasio.
During its weekly meeting the Travel Club studies distant places,
peruses travel magazines, solves geographical puzzles, and listens
to illustrated lectures. Pictures collected while traveling in America
and Europe by the adviser, Mr. Knoll, are projected on the screen
and are described in detail.
Throughout the school year the club discusses present-day prob-
lems in the state, the nation, and the world. It is the purpose of
the club to instruct the members concerning the ever-changing
political and governmental scene. Mr. Trefny is the adviser.

The Gowned Chorus, a very select group of mixed voices, is an
organization characterized by its bright red gowns. Under the
able direction of Mr. Sandt, the members have sung at a number
of musical festivals in the county and have participated in many
community events. Ronald Noll is the accompanist.
The band is a popular musical organization of Fleetwood High
School. At present it is composed almost entirely of boys and
girls from the junior high school and elementary grades and has
greatly improved in performance during the past year. The band
provides excellent entertainment in the school's assembly programs
and participates in the town's parades. Rehearsals are held twice
a week under the direction of Mr. Sandt.

This group, formerly the Girls' Glee Club, has now acquired
the unique name of Treble Singers. Girls from ninth to twelfth
grades who are interested in singing three-part music are eligible
to become members.
The boys of Fleetwood High School are given an opportunity
to reveal their vocal talents through participation in the Boys'
Glee Club. Their appearances in numerous functions in the school
and community have strengthened the reputation of the group
as an outstanding musical organization.
Marianne, the annual operetta, was presented by the music department on De-
cember 3, 1947. Mr. Sandt's proficient directorship, Mr. D'Amelio's striking settings,
Miss Austra's professional coaching of the dance interludes, and Ronald Noll's
brilliant accompaniment combined to make the occasion a highlight in the school's
Marianne Uune Kelchnerj, heiress of the Golonda Emerald Mines in Alguara,
a small South American country, is preparing for her ,twenty-first birthday when
she is to come into possession of her property. Marianne and her friend Mabel
QAudrey Stufiletj, an American girl who is visiting her, are surprised by the arrival
of a group of American engineers in the employ of the Alguaran government in
a dam-building project. The engineers are headed by Al Carter fRobert Wannerj
who is immediately attracted to Marianne. His assistant, Johnny O'Shea QRichard
Kline, is delighted to meet Mabel, an old college friend once again.
Ramon de Trava Qvlfilliam Burnsj an ofiicial from the bank which holds
Marianne's property in trust arrives to turn it over to her on her birthday. The
fortune attracts him as much as her charm attracts Al Carter and he resolves to
break up her friendship with the American and marry her himself. Enlisting the
aid of Marianne's butler, Marco QHarold Schaefferj a released jailbird, he produces
forged papers which make it appear that Al Carter has been bribed by a competitor
of Marianne's mines to construct the dams so that they will Hood her mines and
This plot fails, however, when Johnny O'Shea and Mabel discover evidence
that the documents are forged. Marianne and Al are reconciled and everything ends
Other members of the cast were Senor del Monsara fNorman Dettraj and a
policeman QArlan Heffnerj. An Alguaran native chorus provided a colorful back-
ground for the production.

Candle Light Service
Soft candelight issued from tall red tapers, while fragrant evergreens formed
the background for the inspiring Christmas Candlelight Service held on Thursday,
December 19, in the Emmanuel Evangelical United Brethren Church.
Mrs. Russel Royer and Ronald Noll played effective organ-piano accompani-
ments throughout the program. The chorus in the traditional red gowns entered
and took their places carrying lighted candles and singing Adeste Fideles. Mr. Smith,
our principal, read the Christmas Story from the Scriptures after which the assemblage
sang It Came Upon the Midnight Clear. The choir offered their interpretation of
While Shepherds Watclaed Their Flocks and Deck the Halls.
An artistic solo-trio arrangement of Are .Maria with violin accompaniment by
Mrs. Joseph D'Amelio was the choir's next contribution. joyous carols preceded
the offering during which time a trio sang the Lord's Prayer. The program reached
a climax when Mr. Sandt, the director, presented june Kelchner, who was chosen
Honor Soloist, in a rendition of Holy Night
with choral accompaniment.
While the audience and choir sang Silent
Night the congregation lighted their candles.
To an audience whose eyes sparkled in the glow
of candlelight and whose hearts had been lighted
by the spirit of Christmas, the choir sang Good
Night and Christmas Prayer. Reluctant to break
the spell of so lovely a service, the assembled
guests hesitated to leave after the last echoes
of Harle the Herald Angels Sing, the recessional
hymn, faded on the night. To them the words
of Tiny Tim, "God bless us everyone," held a

A Date With Judy, was presented to a record crowd on March 13 1947 under
the able direction of Mrs. Bodolosky.
Judy QDolores Hammesj and her friend, Barbara Winsocket QJoAnn Hart-
manj are determined to defeat Tootsie Whiteman in soliciting contributions to
the Community Relief Fund so that Judy will be crowned Queen at the school dance.
Soliciting is too slow for them, consequently, using their parents' names, they
enter a number of contests, as a means of raising some quick money. The results
are disastrous for instead of money, Judy's mother fPatricia Strousej wins twenty-
four bottles of "Glint-O" "The Hair Dye for Lively Ladies." Judy's father QRonald
Nollj wins honorable mention in a nation-wide contest for the most "kissable lips."
But Judy is not one to give up easily. She tries her literary talents and concocts
a "true confession" story entitled "I am a Bigamistf' Unfortunately, the script be-
comes confused with Mrs. Foster's speech to the P.T.A. and when she is unable to
give the talk herself because of illness, Mrs. Shultzhammer fElla Morrisj reads it
for her. Judy, and Mitzi Hoffman fKathleen Snyderj have been trying to impress
a theatrical producer and friend of Mr. Foster with their acting ability in order to
procure roles in his next play. The girls plan to pledge their first week's salary
to the Community Relief. They enact a scene from the high school spring play for
the astonished Mr. Martindale QRobert Hamiltonj. Mrs. Schultzhammer sweeps in
waving the "confession manuscript" and demanding that Mrs. Foster resign from the
P.T.A. To add insult to injury, Oogie Pringle QRobert Wannerj tells Judy that he's
tired of waiting for her to make up her mind and has accepted Tootsie W'hitman's
invitation to the dance.
The last act takes place the night of the big dance. Judy is heartbroken not only
because Tootsie has won and is to be the Queen of the dance but also because she
believes she had lost Oogie to Tootsie as well. Randolph fLeon Rothermelj, Judy's
precocious brother tells her that anyone who waits for a Van Johnson escort de-
serves the treatment she's receiving. Life has reached tragic proportions for Judy
but before the evening is over she almost makes a new conquest of Rexford O'Connor
QHerbert Duttj a new boy in town, becomes involved in a near elopement, and
finally, in a last minute mad rush, goes to the dance with Oogie and is crowned
Queen because Tootsie Whiteman has hives!
Additional characters were: Hannah Uune Kelchnerj, a belligerent cookg
Mrs. Hotchkiss QPearl Christmanj, the washerwomang her snub-nosed daughter
Eloise fMargaret Hartzj who elocutesg and Susie QBetty Bieberj Rex's kid sister.

The fifteenth annual gymnastic exhibition was presented on March 20 and 21
in the high school gymnasium under the supervision of Miss Austra and Mr. Heck-
man. The gym was lavishly decorated with atom bombs and bomb explosions in
collaboration with the theme, The Atomic Age.
After the program opened with Modern Twist Marching by a group of selected
senior boys and girls, calesthenics were presented by the seventh grade boys. Lighted
flashlights in the darkened atmosphere put "Atomic Lights" over with a startling
Four boys executed a comedy act, "Atomic Research," which was succeeded by
"Rotary Atoms," tumbling, performed by a number of girls. "Dance Research," a
study of ancient and modern "hops" was followed by boys' tumbling and spring-
The finale featured a group of eight senior girls, dressed in blue gowns, who
performed a dance called "Rhapsody in Blue." At the end of their routine they
caught the huge atom bomb which had been extended from the ceiling.

A colossal variety show was the main feature of the annual senior Hallowe'en
Social on November 1, 1946.
The professional-appearing male octet set the tempo for the night with their
interpretation of In Lore In Vain. A hilarious play, TlJere's One Born Every Minute,
portrayed Ernest Sheetz as the supposedly expectant father and Pearl Christman,
JoAnn Hartman, Patricia Strouse, Betty Snyder, and Joyce Kreidler as nurses. Two
fs and a K Uune Kelchner, janet Adams, and Kathleen Snyderj were enthusiastic-
ally applauded after singing To Earls His Own and Prisoner of Love in their own in-
imitable style. Lore and Nervousness, a negro dialogue, spotlighted Leon Rothermel
and Ray Burgert arguing about the art of love. Dolores Hammes tapped a snappy
Melody in F routine. It's Colossal, a skit dealing with a long-awaited proposal which
ends tragically, featured Kathleen Snyder, Janet Adams, and Robert Wlanner. Richard
Kline and Ronald Noll thrilled the audience with their two-piano arrangement of
Night and Day and jealousy. Artistic Development starred June Kelchner as the
petite wife who wants to reform criminals, Ronald Noll as her provoked husband,
and Henry DeTurck as the man who changed her mind. Joyce Kreidler tapped a
smart version of I W'alleeal In. The last playlet, Will You Marry Me, concerned the
love affair of William Knoll who proposes to his would-be love, Dolores Hammes,
only to find that she is already married.
The finale and climax of the show was a hilarious applause-provoking dance

accomplishment only to the Rockettes. The A.B.'s, including Robert Vllanner, Richard
Kline, Williani Knoll, Ray Burgert, and Donald VanBuskirk, received countless
Fair Are the Meadows, the title of our Commencement pageant, is an account
of the Pennsylvania Dutch, a group of sturdy immigrants who gave America its
heart. To present a kindly and yet an accurate interpretation of these people who
have meant so much to our country is the purpose of this dramatization.
The Voice of the Pennsylvania Germans is the narrator throughout. The first
episode, permeated with the spirit of William Penn, is concerned with the coming
of the Germans to Pennsylvania. In a school scene, in which Christopher Dock, the
master of Skippack School presides, his class retells the coming of these thrifty
farmers while a spotlight reveals tableaus of the Mennonites, Dunkers, Lutherans
and Reformeds, Schwenkfelders, and Moravians. Important men of Dutch ancestry
are shown in murals at the end of the historical part.
Market Day, typical of springtime in the Dutch country, is the theme of Epi-
sode II. Mr. Cramer is selling potato chips, the Umberhauers have a vegetable stall,
Mr. Bagenstose is the butter, egg, and chicken man and Mrs. Goodman sells flowers.
Against this background the customers move- some to buy, others to gossip, and
still others just to look. An organ grinder ambles through the market aisle playing
Lauterbacla as the episode ends.
Summertime in this land of peace and plenty is one of contentment and recrea-
tion. A Sunday School picnic is the feature of the summer episode. The Rebers and
Christmans have come with their children to attend the "salibration" to which they
have looked forward so long. A German band marches through the grove playing
and escorting the superintendent and the performers. A male quartette sings johnny
Schmoker and the program is almost ruined when a bee "sticks" Lillie Emmalina
Hiester. A kindly country doctor comes to the little girl's rescue with medical aid
and a peppermint stick and the day is saved.
Autumn in this happy land is an activity-filled season. When the hills are afire
with scarlet and the scent of burning leaves is everywhere, harvesting, sales, apple-
butter boiling, and quilting are at their height. An auction and an Amish wedding
are enacted in Episode IV. The main action centers about a quilting party in the
home of Sally Anne Stolzfus. Sally Anne is excited because she is going to marry
Reuben Byler on Thanksgiving day. The second part of the episode occurs after
the wedding. The guests are assembled and there is much merriment. Reuben sings
Du, Du Leigst Mir lm Herzen, Sally Anne shows him her "haussteier" Qdowryj,
and the jovial guests finally toss Reuben over the fence indicating that he is now
The Pennsylvania Dutch have always known how to keep Christmas. Today,
Bethlehem is known as Pennsylvania's Christmas City. Long years ago in 1741,
Count von Zinzendorf with his daughter, Benigna, reached the Lehigh River settle-
ment on the eve of the Christ Child's birthday. That night with a full, thankful
heart the devout Moravian nobleman composed a hymn that is used today in the
Episode V depicts the naming the Bethlehem and then portrays a Christmas
eve of today. Rosina, coming in from caroling, finds her grandmother, the oldest
living descendent of the Count, in a remniscent mood. As they talk, the spotlight
discloses a putz scene. Suddenly the carolers arrive to sing to the grandmother.
Holding lighted beeswax candles they offer O Morning Star and Silent Night. In
the distance the town crier announces dawn and from the tower the clear music of
the trombone choir peals forth. The music fades and the Voice speaks.
"Just so good brethren, does Christ kindle a blood-red flame in each
believing heart. May your hearts burn as brightly as now the candles burn."

The Fleetwood Tigers, entered in the strong Northern Division for the second
straight year, fought a tough schedule, and, as a result, had a rather disappointing
season. Although they did not enjoy many victories, they gave every team a hard
fight and waged many nip-and-tuck games only to fall short in the end.
The team consisted of the following players: "Pete" Rothermel, tall forward
and team's high scorer, Lee Folk, a small lad but mighty valuable for scoring, "Abe"
Heffner, center, and runner-up in points, "Bill" Burns, veteran guard, excellent
defense man and ball handler, Carl Herman, who displayed both defensive and
offensive ability, and was co-captain with Burns, Bruce Leibelsperger, another senior,
who although he did not see too much action, proved his worth whenever signaled
to the floor.
The able reserves included Lester Moyer, Stanley Moyer, Gerald Sholedice,
Lee Hill and Warren Miller.

Fleetwood's soccer team went through the 1946 campaign without enjoying
a single victory from any of its league opponents-Hamburg, Kutztown, and Perry.
Although the Tigers boasted a zero in the win column, they waged many close
battles only to fall short of victory in the end. The local boys gave all of the oppos-
ing teams a run for their money, and all league participants knew that they had
been through a battle when the final whistle blew.
Among the close games played by the Tigers were a 3-1 loss to the Kutztown
Cougars, a 1-0 setback at the hands of Perry's Admirals, and a 2-1 loss to the Cougars.

This year, Fleetwood High's baseball team is entered in the Southern Division,
composed of Boyertown, Amity, Oley and Birdsboro. The fans are expecting a
rather successful season from the Tigers because of the fact that six veterans will
be returning to the fold. The local boys will be especially strong in the infield where
they have a holdover for every position.
Last year's team, after getting off to a Hying start, hit a slump towards the end
of the season and ended in third place behind Boyertown and Birdsboro. The
highlight of last year's thrill-packed season was the Tiger's 7-1 victory over Birds-
boro which knocked the latter right out of the divisional pennant picture.

This year, Fleetwood High's basketball and soccer teams were constantly spurred
on to their greatest efforts by ten cheerleaders, strikingly attired in red and white.
Pep meetings in assembly each morning before important games helped to boost
the boys' morale for the approaching conilicts.
The crowd charmers had to achieve certain standards in their "book-larnin' "
or they were released from the squad.

ed us at the door and we paraded proudly to our tables and chairs in the first grade.
Each year brought us something new. We remember exchanging valentines in
our own Post Office which we created with the help of Miss Frances Slaveni in
In third grade we presented our version of Snow W'hite and the Seven Dwarfs
directed by Miss Helen Mertz. This production introduced our wonderful dramatic
Fourth, fifth, and sixth grades under the guidance of Mrs. Ethel Heffner, Miss
Esther Schlegel, and Miss Louise Kelchner rapidly passed by, as we outgrew our
pinafores and knickers, and looked forward to being upstairs.
Seventh and eighth grades were a thrill to us, because of our changing rooms
each period and assembly programs. Both years our assembly contributions were
in connection with Thanksgiving. Our director in seventh grade was Miss Elsie
Bateman and in eighth grade Mrs. Evalyn Dorian.
In ninth grade a curtain was lifted revealing the 9B pupils in a room eight set-
ting. We soon became acquainted and made history in almost anything we attempted.
That year art was an elective and those who chose it presented Snow White and the
Seven Dwarfs, this time as a marionette show with music. We selected our class colors,
blue and white, and proudly wore our class hats. Our assembly program, directed
by Mr. Knoll, pleased the entire school.
We were separated in tenth grade. Each of our assembly programs was unique.
The 10A presentation was a Truth or Consequence program about William Penn
directed by Mrs. Glenn Smeltzerg 10B featured a novelty dance number entitled
"The 10B-etts," augmented by two plays coached by Mr. Wentzel.
In our junior year we occupied the auditorium as our home room. During
that time we received our class rings and Mrs. DeBlasio coached our assembly
program. Several of us represented Fleetwood in the All-County Chorus, band
concerts and in the Tri-County Chorus Meet held at Kutztown State Teachers
Before we knew it, September, 1946, dawned. Nothing seemed new to us ex-
cept perhaps, our title, Seniors. We were successful with our magazine campaign,
soup and cake sales, and the annual Hallowe'en Social. We decorated a Hoat and
entered it in a number of Berks County's Hallowe'en parades. Many of us had
leading roles and took part in the operetta, Marianne. Our school was represented
by some of us on the Berks County Junior Town Meetings of the Air, and also at
numerous county musical events. As in other years we helped again in the Gymnastic
Exhibition and many of our boys participated in all the sports events. Our class
play, A Date With judy, had many favorable comments, and broke all former
records in attendance and financial return. Field day passed by quickly and success-
fully for us. One of the highlights of our last year was traveling to New York
for our class trip. Finally the event arrived for which we had striven for twelve long
years--Commencement! We presented our Pennsylvania Dutch pageant and donned
our caps and gowns to bid farewell to our Alma Mater.
We have heard the bell for the last time. "Today we followg tomorrow we lead."

a sneezing spell, into the arms of
Carl Herman, locally famous for
his Charles Atlas Studio.
Anna Hoffer, women's bowling
champ, passed the finger bowl to

ident of the Acme Stores, an-
nounced that an Acme would be

pointed Freddie Johnston and Betty

frequent battles. Edna Snyder, ma-
tron at the Fleetwood Penitentiary,
separated them before any serious
damage could occur.

public appearance, since divorcing
her fifth husband, with the prom-
inent bachelor Jack Brumbach as
After the meal Leon "Pickle"

Newly-weds, Elwood and Pearl

cent arrival of 1 a new tractor
for their farm.
Patricia Strouse made a grand
entrance in a slinky black gown,
but to the delight of the jealous
few, she slipped and fell on the
The cheering of Donald VanBus-
kirk accompanied the fan dance
which Ella Morris and Joyce Kreid-
ler performed. Donald still has
hopes of becoming a husband.
Janet Adams and William Burns
were recipients of many congratu-
lations upon the recent announce-
ment of their engagement.
A vote of thanks was extended
to Dick Rothermel for his contri-
bution of luscious apple juice pro-
cessed in his huge plant at Moselem
A late arrival was the prom-
inent June Kelchner, first woman-
president of the United States. Be-
cause of her stomach condition
she brought her own lunch con-
sisting of strained soup.
After having awakened from his
nap, Robert Hamilton was assigned
to the clean-up committee.
Hen Kline, director of music at
Sing-Sing, led the group in a tear-
