ARTHUR HECKMAN MR. WILLIAM WENTZEL Dedication 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. L Appreciation i 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.

SMITH Supervising Principal Kutztown State Teachers College, Muhlenberg Collegeg Franklin and Marshall College, B.S.g Penn State College, University of Pennsylvaniag Lehigh University, M.S. 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virtues-accuracy, promptness, fidelity, acceptance of responsibility-the virtues which we often neglect as out of date.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. W ' Six MRS. FRANKLIN H.

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.

Y-Teens 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.

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.

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. Fifty-one PCI C112 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 theatrical history. 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 ruin her. 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 happily. 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.

Fifty-three 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 new significance.

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!

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 effect. 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- board. 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.

DeTurck, Dolores Hammes, Ray Burgert Hallowe'en Social 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 number of the Atom Bombers, an aggregation of delicious de lovelies second in accomplishment only to the Rockettes. The A.B.'s, including Robert Vllanner, Richard Kline, Williani Knoll, Ray Burgert, and Donald VanBuskirk, received countless curtain calls. Sixty Commencement 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 truly married. 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 Moravian churches. "Not jerusalem Rather Bethlehem." 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." Sixty-one 4,4 s - K1 2fi H H ff? ,.

Varsity Basketball 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.

Soccer 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.

Baseball 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.

Track For the first time in five years, a Fleetwood High School track team, which was under the supervision of Mr. Ralph Kieffer, was sent to the field. Even though the thinclads were just beginners, they were entered against steep competition as they traveled to Philadelphia to compete in the Penn Relays, one of the biggest track events in the East.

Cheerleaders 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.

Miss Lillian Schlegel greet- 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 second grade. 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 talent. 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 College. 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.

The class colors, blue and white, were used in the decorations, and favors were white rose buds, the class flowers. Miles Becker, class president, called the reunion to order. Dinner was supervised by Catherine Anne Smith, head waitress. During the course of the meal, Shirley Lutz, primary superintendent of the lo- cal Sunday School, collapsed from 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 Peter Morris. She was so fascin- ated by watching the world known contortionist, William Knoll do the split, that she dropped the bowl on Pete's new summer ensemble. Dinner music was furnished by Josephine Cronrath and her all cowgirl orchestra, featuring June Barlet and her magic violin. They were assisted by Robert Wanner, young hog-caller. Margaret Hartz Hamilton, elocu- tionist, recited "On the Banks of Fleetwood," accompanied by Betty Bieber on the guitar. Suddenly there was a loud knock- ing and Richard Miller was in- structed to "open the door." In walked "Limey" who had just pulled up in his new rocketship. The dinner continued with fre- quent burps by "Chicken', Hinkel, bouncer at the "Greasy Spoon." As the last course of the meal was served, Harold Schaeffer, pres- ident of the Acme Stores, an- nounced that an Acme would be constructed in Walnuttown. He ap- pointed Freddie Johnston and Betty Snyder, residents there, to act as manager and cashier. Mild excitement arose when Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Dutt, the former JoAnn Hartman, had one of their frequent battles. Edna Snyder, ma- tron at the Fleetwood Penitentiary, separated them before any serious damage could occur. Kathleen Snyder made her first public appearance, since divorcing her fifth husband, with the prom- inent bachelor Jack Brumbach as her escort. After the meal Leon "Pickle" Rothermel, Postmaster General, conducted the game "Post Office." Bruce Becker, millionaire playboy, proved to be the life of the party by purchasing the most stamps. Lee and Elaine Schucker left early because --l. Dr. Ronald Noll was unable to attend because of his first -- operation the next morning. Ray Burgert exhibited his flexi- bility of muscles by throwing Bar- bara Dreibelbis into mid-air. Miss Dreibelbis resides in Texas City, Texas. A telegram from Paris indicated that Dolores Hammes and her Seventy-three private secretary, Betty Sanders, could not attend because of the De- signers' Convention. Henry DeTurck and Ernest Sheetz, managers of F.E.M. showed slides of "Wolves and Their In- stincts." Newly-weds, Elwood and Pearl Noll, were excited about the re- 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 dance floor. 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 Springs. 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- ful rendition of the Alma Mater. Woody Henry, famed artist, played taps, and the reunion was adjourned.
