O ONE of the best known teachers in the schoolg to a man
who works tirelessly on five or six man-sized jobs every day of his
school lifeg to a stimulating instructor whose students, as well as
profiting immeasurably by his learning and experience, always
enjoy his classesg to a Friend whose Christianity is apparent in
everything he does-To Mr. Poley, who has seemed especially
fond of our class and unusually lenient with us in this, our most
interesting and formative year, we dedicate our Blue and White
with enduring respect and admiration.

THE President of the Senior Class is another one of
our continental travelers. After a year's sojourn
in France and Switzerland, he returned to school
with a polished accent and the remains of a broken
leg. It all happened on a mountainfside, with
Charlie and a British skiierg when one of them
failed to navigate a turn, Charlie found himself with
a broken leg. However, this didn't affect his skiing-
just watch him sometime. Aside from his athletics,
Charlie rules the turbulent class meetings with never'
ending patience, and when we all leave school it
will be hard to find such an ellicient and swell pal.
CARLA P CHILDS
"LITTLE GIRL" has more than her share of talent
and her refreshing personality and vitality
brighten many a dreary classroom. You would never
guess that Carla used to terrorize the Lower School
teachers with her lively pranks and qluick come'
hacks, hut they always laughed and forgave her
when she sat so angelieally beside her gold harp up
on the stage and announced that she would next
play "Uh WhCl'C, Oh Wliere Has My Little Dog
Cone7". Much in demand for artistic decoration,
she draws with an originality that few of the Art
lvlaiors can equal, Especially adept with a hwkey
stick, she downs opponents twice her size, and in the
summer the goldenfhaired lassic sails her fathcr's
bugeye as easily as the rest of us can row a boat.

entered in oth grade we found a shy, conseienf
tious little girl who did her homework faithfully
and gave marvelous parties. By ninth grade Mr.
Breininger was constantly bringing ffiguratively

and we knew she was cut out for a farm girl. Every
year though we have to change our niind. For a
while there, Wyoming was her destiny: hut Home

can hear those wedding bells already. There is no

ONE of our most ridit nl stniors, Pete was the first
and last to wear tails to the Senior Dances. The
tire shortage has slightly hampered his social affairs,
hut he carries on in the most dignihed manner. Bef
sides his social life, he is famous for swearing he
never swears. and as "ghost captain" of our never-
die eleven. This needs a slight explanation, and it
goes like this Pete always helieved in Math as good

EM has an exceptional complex, and that is the
lack of the opposite sex in his otherwise pretty
normal life. Nobody seems to understand this
rather peculiar trait. and many suggestions have
heen offered as a "cure all." Besides heing practif
cally a candidate for the AllfBulgarian Soccer team,
he is the amazing star of the Biology class, and can
tell you anything ahout anything from hugs to
hears. He is the only person in America who knows
how many gamhling tahles are to he found in the
Casino at MontefCarlo, This was in some way
connected with his Economics course. Aside from
all these traits, and his great fondness for G. A.,
school wouldn't he the same without Em, and
Williams is certainly lucky to get such a swell guy.

Handbook board, these are only a few reasons
why one seldom catches more than a hasty glimpse
of Pat. Born with a knack for managing things,
fremember the recordfbreaking 1941 Athletic Din-
ner?j her school life is more than busy, and her
weekfends aren't exactly idle. But her many good
friends know that in spite of running half a dozen
things at once, she never lets bothering details get
ber down, and we'd be lost without her cheerful
eiliciency. Torn between the G. F. S. social life,
and numerous bird trips, it is not at all unusual to
see Pat come tearing in about 8:43 A.M. Monday,
more or less the worse for wear. A regular first
team member, she is successfully holding her own
in the world of sports.

USH is the class of '42's exponent of Physical
Culture, and when we think of him, we think of
the trek of the Mormons, as he somehow gets to
school from Ambler every morning. His hair and
jitterbugging are a constant plague to us, and all
we need is a large pair of shears to urge us on. As
a rooter of the dance for the Defense Program,
Bushy staggers around the floor to the tune of,
"Beat Me Daddy," or "Old Black joe," and his
polkas are unforgetable, as many of the opposite
sex will testify. Besides these great achievements, he
is famous for evading gym, his unsolvable argue
ments, and the voice behind the scenes of the "Stuf

we say ahout Ned that is uncomplimentary, he
definitely overshadows with his great sense of humor

his sense of humor and his dislike for mental lahor
have led him to getting teachers permanently side'

Sometimes even the dignified teachers smother a

PETE is the Richard Halliliurton of our class.
Leaving school in Ninth grade he went ahroad
with his family for the Friends Service Committee,
and amazed Dutch school teachers with his great
learning. For a pastime he skated on l'lolland's
canals and saw Adolph in Munich. After missing
lvoats and things. he arrived in the U. S. A. two
years later: and finding Westtiiwii too easy, he
once again came hack to G. F. S. as a welcome addi'
tion to the class of '42, and the translating genius
of senior German. We also join him in lvemoaning
the fact that his good, Dutch hicycle is in the hands
of the German army. and all secretly hope that it
is stuck somewhere in that oozy, red, Russian mud.

PROBABLY not many years from now we will
look back on Will as the genius of abstract
theories. However, we don't have to look far
ahead to see his name topping the list of honors in
the scientific journals. ln fact. some day one of his
theories might revolutionize something, and that's
what we're afraid of. Can't you see every teacher
on the Eastern coast turned into a purple dragon?
lt's nice to see Will under his car, or on his bicycle
working with something he claims is not abstract.
No matter what he says, if you plan to ride with
him, also be planning to push with your feet

GINNIES unreadable face is effective in two ways.
First as a means of concealing her thoughts it is
a challenge to any mindreader. Secondly it goes
beautifully with her witty humor. But in spite of
it, we suspect from various revealing clues that she
really has a very tender heart. Ginny won't admit
any ambition except a hankering to fly, but we
have a suspicion that in the not too distant future
she will be either a Wiuniaii in White clutching a
scalpel in her slender fingers, or an Angel of Mercy

T WAS a bright and cheerful day for was it?J when seventeen of us
were dragged into the kindergarten by our doting parents to begin
our school career. Mary Lees was to be seen peering through her
daddy's legs, and Mary Lee, later known as the "Dragon Lady,"
dissolved into tears at the very thought of letting go of her mama's
hand. Once settled, though, we really began to enjoy the place, what
with spilling bottles of orange juice and milk, building block houses,
and a Hallowe'en party at which Wilkie appeared in a white bunny
suit with long pink ears and a fuzzy cotton tail.
It was almost with regret that we left the easels and entered real
school as "first grade babies." There were three sections of us swelled
to twentyffour by the entering of Sally, Boggs, Eleanor, Ginny, Mar'
garet, Ned, and Bob. Nothing exceptional happened that year
except, perhaps, that some of us were in the pageant with the Trojan
We graduated to Wag and Puff with Miss Williams and Miss
Fellows. Miss Vkfilliams told us stories every week and drew pictures
to illustrate them which she gave to the angel fgoodyfgoody to youj
of the day. The very good ones among us were presented with gold
and silver keys for our super'plus behavior, and most all the girls put
notes at a certain desk saying "I love L. R." fIt's a wonder any of
us got keyslj Both sections journeyed to the firefhouse, the one on
Chelten Avenue, and to city hall where we viewed the surrounding
country from the feet of Billy Penn. We had fun painting the walls
of the cellar playroom even if we did get most of the paint on our'
In third grade we had Miss Bowman and Miss Keim. We also
had two additions to our class, Molly and Marie. Those of us in
Miss Keim's section displayed our blossoming talents by writing
poems about everything from "The Mist" fPeggy WJ, and "I Meant
to Do My Work Today" fBobJ. On May Day we were Indians
in a play about Penn's Woods at Awbury.
Ann Felton got off to a good start as Cleopatra, with David as
Mark Antony in a play in fourth grade. And Betty learned the hard
way. She was the first in the class to be sent to Saturday Study, and
it was only because she answered "Here" an octave too high to Miss
Weiner in gym class. Mary, with her sandy hair-then, Carla, with
her harp, and Pete, with Bull, joined us that year.
. l -
Fifth grade brought a lot of new things, such as staying at school
for lunch, going to meeting, Greek myths, boys and girls having
separate rooms, and fictitious trips in both Bible and Social Studies.
Mr. Cadbury used to take us for bird walks before school, believe it
By the time we reached sixth grade we were feeling quite grown
up. The girls had weekly sewing classes during which they pro'
ceeded to nickname all the members of the class, i.e., Boggs was
Pussyfoot. Joan Decker, with long, thick braids-wow!!, and Ann
Corson were the new members of the class. That was the year that
we had Miss Smith for English, and one section gave Evangeline in
assembly. Buddy Vaughn was gagged constantly for talking too
much, and three-quarters of the class would meet daily in Teacher
Emma's room to make up corrections. During the spring we all
became fervent bird hunters, and each Monday morning we would
try to identify our week-end discoveries that were about "so" long,
had a song that you couldn't describe, and might have been either
green or brown.
Then came seventh grade with Miss Geiger fwho took one sec'
tion up to George School on a picnicj, and Mr. Platt, with his sci'
ence field trips, his debates, and his baseball teams. That was the
year that the boys put Billy Fricke in the scrap basket which they
put on the shelf over the door. And it was also the eventful year
that Joan. had her pig-tails cut, and that we had, for the first time,
And as for the eighth grade-oh, what a year! In the first place
Bush and Tom joined us, which in itself was quite something. And
we started French and Latin, and Miss McCarroll was sick. In her
place was Mrs. Mclver. To put it mildly, we were bad in English.
Martha Stokes brought a snake to class which, quite by accif
When Joe O. was told to pick it up he
wouldn't. He said that he was afraid. There was an alarm clock on
the window sill, that had a very strange habit of going off in the
middle of class. We would all stretch, yawn, and put our heads down
on our desks. During one of these "rest periods" we were told that
if we didn't think that we were going to learn anything in class, we
could leave the room. We left.
dent, of course, got loose.

Will Myers joined us in ninth grade, the year of Mr. Platt's
famous history course when we took trips to various museums and
places of similar interest. Each car would leave with all sorts of food
smuggled in, and we would have one big feast. It was after one such
excursion that Mr. Breininger caught Betts Furman, Ann Felton, and
Mary deCoursey swinging a coke bottle against his window behind
which the other section was trying--we wonder-to study.
There were some pretty wild class dances that year with the boys
chewing tobacco and flourishing guns, and the whole class joining in
with the throwing of Christmas tree balls. But we finally outgrew
such childish things-finally.
In tenth grade the occasions were not rare that a boy, any one
in the class, would walk into class later after an unanticipated trip
to the Five and Ten to buy a necktie. Nor was it unusual to enter
Mr. Price's room and have anything from boxes and books, to
eraser and chalk either fall on you or be thrown at you. On Fridays
during lunch period there was a barnyard session, the unappreciative
called it a hog calling contest, in the girls' room.
That was also the year that Carla and Ann Corson were sent
home from school, and that Mary Lees had her pigftails cut off, and
that Mary Lee was christened the "Dragon Lady." And who could
ever forget Will dashing down the hall with the flaming scrap bas'
ket in his arms or Joe O.'s wonderful handiwork in history? The
girls made a sad attempt at writing a class newspaper, but after two
editions they seemed to forget the idea.
Kit and Jane joined us that year, and Eleanor B. left us for
awhile, and, oh yes, there was the Hrst boys vs. girls hockey game,
and Buddy Vaughn's party at Ocean City.
Came eleventh grade with half the class fwell, almost-Sally,
Ellen, Barbie, Emmy, and Bobj coming down with such childhood
diseases as measles and mumps.
At the Annual TotfLot party given by the girls at the McKinneys,
Betty made a perfect Santa Claus until one of the children piped up,
"Oh, look, Santa's wearing lipstick." She will never get over it.
And because it snowed there was no class hockey game, so we all went
to the movies instead-only not until after Bush had had time to
put a snowball through Betty's aunt's window.
Poor David, one day he innocently took his lunch from his desk
and Wilkie had discovered them Hrst.
, , . .V
We can't pass by this year without mentioning the Girls 'Athletic
Dinner which Pat ran beautifully, and at which about half of the
class fof girlsj made perfect fools of themselves in gym costumes,
style 1900. It was fun though.
Ellen took the laurels in the Elocution Contest with a superb
performance of "The White Cliffs."
The front hall is our home, and new dignity sits upon our shoul-
ders. We've had amazing success with Senior Plays, Senior Dances,
Senior Offices, and Senior Privileges Qby the way, what are Senior
Privileges?l. The noise we make at the front hall table rivals any

Dave and Emmy kept Basketball aliveg we could spot Mary standing

Jimmy was the only one who still carried a schoolbag-or maybe
we've all stopped studying. The girls took up bridge and Nurses'
Aidfingg on the one the faculty frowned, but were terribly pleased
with the other. As for our Red Cross courses-the girls dash off diet
charts at the drop of a temperature, and our boys can turn a mean
tourniquet. Any teacher will tell you how we've improved. We're
almost acting our age.
But we feel on our necks the hot breath of the Eleventh Grade.
Already they are itching to run the Pastorian, the Assemblies, the
First Teams, Dances, and Privileges if they can think of any. All
right, infants, take over. We'll soon be lowly Freshmen once more.

THE TALK OF THE TOWN
Notes and Comment
The other day we were inter-
ested to read that "Julep" John-
son, Public Enemy No. 7, was
finally cornered in a greenhouse
in suburban Philadelphia, crouch-
ing behind a tray of Shasta Dai-
sies. Official attention was at-
tracted to his hideout by the
systematic and wholesale break-
age of the glass panes in the roof.
We quote an interesting bit from
the newspaper we read: "Me trig-
ger linger gits rusty. I wuz keep-
in' me hand in," e x p l a i n e d
"Julep," perpetrator of the no-
torious series of Little Mending
Shoppes robberies, so cunningly
carried out. "Yeah," he continued,
"I wuz pickin' them panes off
one by one." This criminal called
"Julep" is in reality James John-
son. of Germantown, Philadel-
phia. His mother, when ques-
tioned, said he had always been a
"good boy" and she couldn't be-
lieve he had done the robberies.
"That wuz just it," said Johnson.
"I awweez wuz a good boy. It
begun ta get on me nerves. Be-
sides, me frens wuz aweez takin'
advannage of me."
Now, Headquarters, get after
Public Enemy No. 6.
Add interesting occupations:
we met at a tea the other day a
Mary Lees McKinney, a resident
of Hollywood. We naturally as-
sumed that she was a movie star,
but it turned out that she works
at the Disney Studios. It seems
she produces the famed giggle of
the country's latest craze, Hymie
Hyena. Miss McKinney was quite
modest a b o ut ber attainment.
"I've been giggling for years,"
she giggled. Hymie Hyena does
not have a ghoulish laugh, but a
soft, running snicker, and Miss
McKinney is just the girl who
can snicker soft and runningly.
She estimated that her salary is
559.1-5 per chortle. Well, laugh and
the world laughs with you-gig-
gle and you get 959.4-5.
VVe got an interesting letter
from a Pennsylvania farmer to-
day. It seems he was annoyed at
a little piece we wrote some is-
sues ago about a friend of ours
whose wisdom teeth had never
come in. This farmer, named
Mcllvain, seemed rather peeied
at the unwarranted publicity my
friend thus received. He wrote:
"Wisdom teeth is nothing--I only
got HM: ribs. Put that in your
pipe and smoke it." Our apolo-
gies. Mr. Mcllvain, and we will
do just that.
"But, ladies, are we all sure we want to invite Mrs. Robert
Yarnall? Her husband is so mental."

vived when the St. Regis was

BOYS' ATHLETIC COUNCIL
ESTER FlS1'lER'S hands did not tremhle when he got up to deliver his address at
the Council dinnere -'hut his knees were shaking the tahlc. He didn't need to have
heen worried though, hecause everyone knew what a swell joh he had done. Since '17
the Council has heen aiding the faculty, taking more responsibility all the time and
offering stimulation and encouragement. We dropped the Color Contest sadly this
year, hut we had to make room for other events. The school seems to have more united
strength in sports this year rather than a few outstanding stars. This means that the
teams may have had ups and downs, hut on the whole they have heen consistent.

GIRLS' ATHLETIC CCUNCIL
ERHAPS it's just because we're getting older, or perhaps it's because the Athletic
Council, as its members insist, is broadening its field of interest, but whatever
the reason is, this year we seem to have really learned something about it. XVe'vc always
known its duties included appointing managers, awarding insignia, and so forth: but
this year the Council interested itself in everything pertaining to the girls, not just
to their sports. A first aid course was introduced, and, due to the influence of a
certain camp in Maine, the Council also decided to have a school bracelet with the
school seal and to award charms representing the different sports instead of the former
felt insignia. We hear a great deal from the old members about the long afterfschool
discussions of the Council, and debates about rather unfathletic subjects at that, but
under the rather eflicient president, Patty Brown, dust flies and things get done.

bared our innermost workings to the public eyeeand then Ye Ed is by nature an
advocate of the democratic policy. No more whip cracks behind closed study doors
and secretive board members with nervous, strained faces: we invite you all to write
your life stories for us, or at least a movie or book review.
When Ellen arrives in class with a huge sheaf of papers and spends the period
with an efficient looking pencil that works overtime you know that an issue is about
to burst forth. All young hopefuls bring their compositions to her, and after wading
through it ruthlessly with that brutal pencil, she not infrequently prints them. This
all-welcome policy is a new invention, and if you all thumb over this year's Pastorians,
I think the variety of material will amaze you.

BLUE and WHITE BOARD
S USUAL the BLUE AND W'Hl1'E to end all year books got started in a flurry in
September. Meetings were called and ultirnatums laid down wildly by Editor
Foster concerning when material was to be in. He decided that everyone in the class
was to be on some committee-yes, everyone! Enthusiasm for having it completed
by February fell off a little around Christmas. Spring found Ye Ed with straw in the
hair and fire in the eye screaming at his devoted board, "I've written this whole book-
yes, I have, every word. Look, I'm turning gray!" XVhen the shouting died we dis-
covered a very creditable year book the result. It may not be the best yet, but it's
the best written in the year '42,
E WAVERED until after Christmas over the old prolwlem to give or not to
give a Uilhert and Sullivan operetta. Everyone secretly practiced for solo parts
until the hitter lwlow came no Nelson Eddys and few Grace Moores. Mr. Fowler
was so complimentary ahout our Christmas Concert that he wanted to see a similar
spring event in company with a play. Spurred on hy these kindly words, we practiced
wildly for our performance to he given with The Devil and Daniel Welwster. We how

NDER Mr. Fowler's suggestion the dances hecame more personal. He urged that
we concentrate on entertaining our own school rather than make a drive for vis'
itors. Coke appeared on our refreshment tahles, for about two minutes, and the atmos-
phere became more intimate. The receiving line came out of the ether and hecame a
very real part of our dances, for Mr. Fowler stalwartly attended every one. Perhaps
we waver hack and forth between the red and the hlack, hut we all agree that fun
makes up the losses.

HE Handbook Board always flourishes in the deepest secrecy, getting out the edi-
tions efheiently and quietly. You hardly ever hear of them, unless perhaps you
won the tennis :up and they want to know your middle initial. This year, however,
you might have heard loud and frequent complaints from the editor in the Senior girls'
room on the suhjeet of priorities for defense, which had deprived the printer of the
paper needed for the Handbook. Iekes relented, however, and the 24th edition of the
Students' Handhook appeared this fall complete with a thorough face-lifting job which
hrought it really up to date.

HIS year's foothall team was a distinct improvement over last year's. Starting out
with a large squad, Mr. Breininger and Mr. Lewis went through the usual period
of getting the guys in shape. Our practice was late heeause of Polio. and the coach
looked nervous. However. he cheered up when we defeated Mr. Fowler's Tower
Hill. Perhaps we were too happyg we lost to Church Farm School for no reason
whatsoever the next week.
We then won three games in a row, thanks to our powerful haekfield and timely
signal calling. ln the next to last game we rolled up one of the largest scores in his'
tory. Overfconiident we were thrown hy our great rivals in the last game.

LMOST a yearly ritual was hroken heyond repair this year hy the Soccer Team.
Cur mighty eleven fell right and left to end up in fifth place in the lnteracademic
League. The causes are not very clear when you notice we held Penn Charter to a
O43 tie, and P. C. finished in second place. The team was handicapped more than
once in its games hy sickness, which seemed to he prevalent throughout the season.
Despite our defeats we all found Fi a hard hitting, inexhaustihle Captain, and
Mr. Smith an invaluahle coach, and we all graduate with the feeling that we gained
some good experience, if not the cup. We all hope sincerely that next year's team
quickly makes up for lost time.

ITH a 6-0 victory over the Alumnae to start our year off with a bang, the
hockey team had a fairly successful season. Our game with Moorestowii was
one of the most exciting in the school history--with really top-notch hockey, the win'
ning goal being made in the final minute of play. The rest of the season saw two
more victories, three defeats, and one tie. There was no one outstanding player, and
the team worked with fine cooperative spirit under the guidance of our cofcaptains,
Patsy Brown and Peggy Wessels.
The second team also did a good job with five victories and one defeat.

HIS year's Lacrosse season was neither glorious nor ahundant with lots of inter'
school competition. On the contrary, it was full of wippy team players, hut they
had no chance to show off their prowess in the typical spirited Germantown Friends
School manner. It is true they did have that game with Erwin's. The team considered
that merely a warmer upper until the transportation situation arose and smashed all
hope of other games to hits. They all have worked hard and gotten lots of experi-
ence and fun out of it, and we know next year the Lacrosse team will arise from its
neglected state and return to the victories of yesteryear.

ESPITE our slow start the end of the season found us with live victories and six
defeats. In a game with Wilmington Friends, who had won nine straight games,
we fought hard all the way, but were finally defeated 48-49. It was in this game
that Dave Smith set a new school record by scoring 23 points.
We had a night game this year, during the Golden jubilee of basketball, with
Friends Select, and gave all the money to the Basketball Memorial in Springfield,
Mass. Then the annual gym exhibition was dropped, and we had another night
game, with Spring Garden Institute, whom we defeated 29f15. Best of luck to Bill

NFORTUNATELY we only had two regulars from last year's team, and that
spells had news in any one's language. Somehow Miss Miller whipped a team
into shape that was able to make some showing in all the games, The scores don't
show the profitahle hours of practice or the close, tense moments of play. We rememf
her them, however, and next year's team, having grown through last season's experif

HIS year Mr. James had one of the largest turnouts in a long while. With about
twentyfeight hoys out it made competition for positions keener. After win'
ning the first two games our weakness in hitting and in the infield finexperiencedj
began to tell. The next two games went down as defeats, 2-4, 4f9. We then defeated
Tower Hill, formerly Mr. Fowler's old school, by the score of 341. Now with the
good spirit which prevails, here's hoping for a successful ending.

HIS year's team, after losing only lst singles and onefhalf of lst doubles from last
year's, has a very bright outlook. Following a late start of practice, Mr. Bathgate
arranged the team positions and discovered it to bc one of the best balanced teams in
many a year. With Emlen Brown playing first singles, Tom Foster second, Tom
Shipley third, Ted Stevenson fourth, Paul and Wright first doubles and Whitall and
Wood second doubles, we are looking forward to a very successful season.

HIS squad was formed out of the problem-what to do with those who didn't
care for basketball. For two years the team just played among themselves, but
this year they felt themselves capable of tackling outside competition. They found it
pretty stiff but were undaunted. They have raised badminton to a major sport. The
entire team graduates this year, but we hope there will be others to take their places.

they formed of ahout every team in the school. At the date that this goes to
press. however, the strength of the squad looks pretty uniform. The Helen Wills
lvioody who will win the cup hasn't made herself stand out at the date that this goes
to press. For the past three years the cup has heen taken lay the Class of '41, so we
are all pretty anxious to know who will he the new star.

is an advantage in having your annual printed in
a plant that does a lot of this class of work.
For fifteen years we have been making year books
for particular schools and colleges.
l Your year book lasts a lifetime-and it is printed
- only once. So take no chances. Place it in the
hands of specialists.
