DEAR G-RADUATE: It is my pleasure to extend a word of greeting to you, this, your graduating year. You have earned your di- ploma, and you have a right to be very proud of it. In the completion of your high school course, you have made a definite forward step, and the things which you have QA Greeting from MR. NICOLA D'ASCENZO jlilember of the Glioard of Education THE Board of Public Education spends 5100 per year per pupil in providing educational opportunities for tlle youtll of our city. Mr. D'Ascenzo brings a greeting to tlve class from a riclv experi- ence as a master craftsman, for lie is re- nowned as a designer of stained glass windows. He has just completed a beautiful creation for the Cathedral of St. John tlve Divine in New Yorlc City, and forthe National Cathedral in Wash- ington, D. C. H a v e y o u a hobby? If you do not have one, I would advise the ac- quiring of oneg the old saying that "an idle mind breeds mischief," is indeed true, and the fruits thereof may be wit- nessed in any com- munity. The city of Phila- delphia is equipped with magnificent facilities for helping learned will prove of immeasurable value. If you are not fortunate enough to be able to attend College do not be disheartened: the success which you will undoubtedly achieve can be and has been gained without its help. 'Ihat it is a distinct aid, however, is not to be gainsaid, as practically all who have never gone to College, later in life find themselves wishing that they had, no matter how great their individual success. Success is never reached however, by doing only the task that is given you, but by doing more. In other words, the really valuable man to society, is not the man who knows only his job in a mediocre manner, but the man who can attack and con- quer his job from every conceivable angle. The importance of the above cannot be too strongly stressed. 8 youg witness the Free Library, the Commercial Nluseum, the Academy of Natural Sciences, the Franklin In- stitute, the Art lNIuseum, etc., almost ad intinituni. In these places you will certainly find some branch of the arts, sciences or letters to occupy you not only in your spare moments, but in moments in which you find your- self distressed by either physical or mental fatigue. Painting, etching, drawing and wood carving are my hobbies, and there is nothing equal to the relaxation in being able to turn to one of these. Further, many men have turned to their hobbies as a mean.s of livelihood, even during the present business depression. All things, businesses and profes- sions, are undergoing radical changesg whether for better or for Worse is a matter of personal opinion. Art is not exempt, naturally, because of its re THE CLASS REC ORD, JUNE, 1935 ....g Egg definite connection with society in general. 1Iodern art is justified only inas- much as it reflects past traditions, but unfortunately in most of it this tra- dition is unrecognizable. In using the word "modern,' I do so in the ac- cepted sense, properly speaking, all art of today is modern. Nothing of a radical nature can ever succeed unless its action is founded on fundamental truth. One might just as well defy the laws of nature: it just cannot be done. An unthinking person might say that the laws of nature are disregarded when we are building a sky-scraper, but not so. Every law of nature was con- sidered by the architect and by the engineer to the best of their knowl- edge: they work with nature, and are , 1 MQ-7 fp... surrounded by CRIIIOIIHHQEQ there is a reason for it. lYe hear that a certain person took up a prcfferred vocation hbecause there was money in it.', Bly advice is to choose a job that you are happy in and do it well, and try to do it better than the man next to youg the monetary gain is sure to take care of itself. Society offers you unbounded opportunities, and owes you a living only in just proportion to your service and efforts in its behalf. "Ile profits most who serves best." Have you stopped to realize the many benefits you have received through our fine school system? Your teachers have worked diligently and patiently to help you arrive at your of them . you owe a great debt of gratitude. present goal, and to every one careful to respect lier every whim. That "disaster follows indiffer- encei' is a prin- ciple to be not lightly regarded. Good art was never masked by high sounding and uninterpretable phrases: it needs no high-pressure salesmanship to put it across, but stands on its own merits.

THE CLASS REfORD, JUNE, 1935 ...ob QU, IE qs... The Outlook H221 DR. EDWIN C. BROOME Superintendent of Schools To the Graduating Class of the German- town High School, Philadelphia,Penna. MY DEAR FRIENDS! You and your classmates are ap- proaching a most important event in your lives, that of graduating from high school. You have enjoyed the privilege of an edu- cation in all grades through the senior high school, and, undoubtedly, you DR. BROOME needs no introduction to us. As Superintendent of Schools he is in a strategic position to interpret the worlr of the School System and its rela- tion to the problems of our day. His message is replete with sound advice for tlwose facing decisions requiring the bene- fits of experience for a happy landing. His advice is intensely practical, and will give satisfaction and encourage- ment in tlvese trying days. start, and many tunities for service. I have a great deal of sympathy for the boys and girls who are stepping into life today. Bly advice to you is to get hold of something honest and useful to do, Whether or not it is the thing that you had expected to do, and regardless of the compensation. You cannot run a race unless you make a a person has made a have acquired a great deal of informa- tion, many skills, and a well-trained mind. These, together with good health, high purpose, and strong char- acter, are the very best Weapons with which to iight the battle of life, for life is a battle, but a challenging one, and one that is not altogether disa- greeable. You get as much fun out of life as you put into itg and, if you put all of yourself into life, honestly and fearlessly, you will get a great deal out of it, and also make life pleasant for others. At the moment, the outlook is not very promising in the way of oppor- poor start, picked up later, and passed the tape first. If you cannot find anything to do that pays you wages, it is Wise to find something to do in the way of gratui- tous serviceg or best of all, if you can afford it, to go on with your education in some higher or different type of institution. You can never acquire too much educationg but the habit of loafing, which is easily acquired, will prove to be a handicap throughout life. I wish all of you, therefore, success and happiness in your future careers. . ' ' rl- 4 . . . . - a..'- :H-1 -- -sf' yd i' W- - ef - --:xl 10 If:- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 ----:Egan .ng-.,....

The object ot educa- tion is not only to train a student to think, but to train him to live. And to that end we must lay hold on the conviction that truth never changes. Our conception of truth changes all the who prey on a patient publicg of the diplomats who play the age-old war game without counting its bitter cost to humanity. It matters little what a man has in his headg if he does not have in his heart the spirit of square dealing and upright living, a head full of facts will get him nowhere. More and more in this modern world we are coming to realize that the only thing of value is character. Neither money nor social standing, neither popularity nor at- tractive personal qualities, can ever make up for lack of character. The business world would be wrecked in a day were any consider- able number of business men to be dishonest. We must have character in every aspect of life or we have chaos. True education concerns itself not just with a mants mind, but with his -QI 11 time, but truth itself is an eternal thing in no way affected by the pass- ing of time. If a principle is true today it was true a million years ago, and if it was not true a million years ago it is not true today. The thing that changes with the passing years and centuries is not truth, but man's grasp of truth. So let us not be misled by those who scoff at everything old and praise everything new. The point is that we must lay hold on truth, which is eternal, and learn how to apply it to situations that are ever new. VVhen we learn how to do this, we are educated, not only in head but in heart. VVe have gone to school to the enrichment of our characters as well as to the enrichment of our minds. Above all we have learned how to handle the biggest job in the worldw- that of living every day with purpose, joy, and self-control. le THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 -I: Sgr HC::E,L'l" E EE E E THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 ...srtil .- ,j 3....

Now you are about to step out into the world, and the life that follows will largely depend upon what road you take. If you take the path of least re- sistance you will amble along and ar- rive nowhere. The FOR years, Mr. Emhardt has been president of the Germantown and Chestnut Hill Improvement Association.

Among the first things attempted of a community nature was the building of schools. The writings of Abraham Lincoln said, "Property is the fruit of laborg path most worthwhile will be selected with a high resolve to make the most of yourself as a good citizen, and to do just a little more than is required of you. The extension of the Public School System into the higher grades can only be justified at public expense with the thought in view of a better citizenship, and is n.ot warranted unless the stu- dents accept this responsibility in exchange for the educational advan- tages provided. Knowledge is power, and power is only worthwhile when properly applied. It leads to cor- ruption and spoils, when misused. School funds are largely drawn from taxes on real estate, which have become quite burdensome. Real es- tate is simply one form of accumula- tion which is the result of labor and application and is a thing to be de- sired. All that the early settlers had property is desirableg is a positiye good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich and, hence,is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another, but let him labor diligently and build one for himself. thus, by example, assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built." The general condition of mind in lhese disturbing times is toward the tearing down of the old order of security which undermines the sta- bility of the Government. Study your history and think deeply of the causes which underlie the founding and the building of our Country. l will again referto the saying of Lin- coln, 'Wvith malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the light, let us finish the work we are inf, -:QI 13 Is-- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 -I+-,KQQU , .-, .leg 4-- PRINCIPAL THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 ....4.-ggi. 4 ,A meg To THE NIEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF JUNE 1935:- If there is one thing which more than anything else characterizes this universe of ours, it is change, ever- present, everywhere present.

SEELY Trincipal and Friend AS PRINCIPAL of this school, Dr. Seely has had a wide experience with the problems of youth. He is lceen in his understanding of life's complexities and sympathetic in his handling of its proh- lems. His parting message sounds a clarion note for those who will hear and will accept a friendly word of encourage- ment from one who is greatly interested in their success consistent with our objective makes our final goal more eas- ily attainable. Every student who finds education a slow laborious pro- cess should commit to memory the fol- owing from the writings of VVilliam James: "Let no youth have any anxiety about the upshot of his education what- nothing seems to be constant either in form or quality. Sometimes the movement is rapid, explosive and gen- erally destructiveithis is revolution. At other times it is slow, quiet and constructive-this is evolution. Generally human characters which are worth while are built up in the latter way. Psychologists tell us that only occasionally are habits broken or found suddenly, as by conversion. Almost always they are the result of slow day-by-day growth. What we will be tomorrow can be pretty actually foretold by what we are doing today. A knowledge of the above fact should be full of encouragement for all of us who strive daily to attain any worthwhile quality or ability and find its accomplishment difficult and slow.

If he keep faithfully busy each hour of the work- ing day he may safely leave the final result to itself. He can with perfect certainty count on waking up some fine morning to find himself one of the competent ones of his generation in whatever pursuit he may have singled out. Silently, between all the details of his business, the power of judging in all that class of matter will have built itself up within him as a posses- sion which will never pass away."

KONZEL- mann came to German- town High School as chief engineer and custodian in February 1915 when our Alma hlater first opened. Since 1890 he had been em- ployed by the Philadelphia Board of Public Education as chief engineer for the Old Central hlanual Training School, located at Seven- teenth and Wood Streets. lNIr. Konzelmann was born August 9, 1864. in Philadel- phia. From 1885 to 1888 he worked as assistant engi- neer of the United States . Post Office at Ninth and llarket Streets, Philadelphia. He worked in the same capacity for the Tjhiladelphicl, Inquirer from 1888 to 1890. hlr. Konzelmann took over his latest assignment under Dr. Harry F. Keller, then principal of our school, and he hasnft missed more than six school days in the forty-five years of his employment in public high schools. His interest in the school is shown by the following information which he gladly furnished. A staff of twenty-five persons is responsible for the condition of the build- ing: one chief engineer, two electrical engineers. one electrician, two firemen, one night watchman, one matron, one elevator operator, four men janitors, eleven women janitors, and one supervisor, llr. Konzelmann has the reputation of being thoroughly reliable and will go out of his way to help or co-operate with someone. This is probably one of the reasons why he is such a busy man. He does not intend to leave school permanently, but plans to return often to visit his long time friends and associates. The school will not easily be able to fill the shoes of such a reliable and cooperative man as hlr. Konzelmann. .51 2 5 Ip..

For each of us, it means the severing of friendships, and the launching out into the maelstrom of life. The past has taught us many lessons. The development of talents, of self expression, and the assumption of the responsibili- ties of leadership, are some of the characteristics which should be the outcome of our past efforts. It is my Wish for each one of you th at you will play the game of life clean, and refiect the worthy traditions of our Alma lVIater to the end that We will become worthy citizens of our community and of our country. Sincerely, EDYVARD BICKEL. -.ral 30 Ib- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 -cf-2:60 niac- GIRLS'PRESIDENT EAR CLASSMATESZ We have benefited in many ways from our high school life. From the association with many difterent types of teachers and students we have learned the principles of cooperation which are necessary to us since we must always work and live with people. Our lessons gave us invaluable practice in disciplining ourselves. VVe were taught the history of our country, and the organization of our government. This knowledge, with actual training afforded by student government, should niaketus more responsible and capable citizensg the study of literature has made us better fitted to choose the most worth-while books. VVe must always try to keep in mind, no matter what kind of position we hold later in life, that "it is the man who degrades the position, not the position which degrades the man." And now let me wish for you the greatest thing in life- happiness. Sincerely, ELLESIV ANDERSEN. --:gl 31 Ile-- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 '-fi it SSH-- 1 MISS FREEHAFER'S CLASS MR.

COMMITTEE OF TEN VERY school has its student government and at its head is usually found the finest, most outstanding students of the school. The Com- mittee of Ten is the governing body of our school. Blembership is secured only through nomination by the faculty and the vote of the Senate. It is the duty of these ten people to enforce, with the aid of sub-commit tees, all of the laws passed by the Senate. The committee receives reports of the infringment of these laws and takes action on them at their meetings, which are held every Tuesday and Thursday in Room 310. The President of the Senate during our 'SAM term was Bob Connor, who proved an able and eflicient leader. Jane Read was Vice-President and she also performed the duties of her oflice in a very creditable manner. One of Janels special duties was to oversee the lunchrooms. Kay Anderson and Bill English, both of the "Bn class, were her aides. The unpleasant job of watching for violaters of the smoking rules was awarded to Bob Richards and Alex VVallace. They both handled their work excellently. Kathryn C"Dickie,'D Schwefler and Ed Bickel were responsible for traffic in the halls and stairways. Ellesiv Andersen was responsible for the order in the assembly, and the artistic arrangement of posters on the bulletin boards was due to Muriel Manship. After glancing through this list of names and then seeing the order and management of the school, there is no doubt in anyonels mind that this Committee-of-Ten was indeed the 6'Cream of the Cropf, '-:xl 100 Ir-- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 -we gggr A- A 7 ,777 Y Y ?-W Y N555-T 9...- BOOSTERS HEN ever there,s a project around school that needs to be boosted, the Boosters are always on the job. They form one of the liveliest and most necessary groups in Germantown. In 1924 Fred Earle organized a grouptof five girls and five boys which banded together for the sole purpose of putting pep and spirit into the activities. 'l his aim has been continued with ever increasing success. The Boosters sell A. A. Books, and arrange Blass Meetings. They also originated Frolic VVeek which takes place every Fall term. The Booster Dance and Color Day, both backed by the Boosters, are two actiy ities every- body enjoys. A year ago, Germantown was without a mascot. To the rescue came the Boosters, and produced a bear. This bear appears at all the football games in full regalia and array. All of this brings to the Booster's treasury, a substantial sum which they give to the improvement of the Athletic Field and to the Students' Assistance Fund. High-pressure salesmen is the name best applied to these girls and boys. This year, the Boosters, under the leadership of Blr. Beneher, sponsor, were composed of Yolanda Grubmeyer, chairmen, Stewart Cowan, secretary and treasurer, Marion Struse, Dorothy Dingee, Helen Louise Nliller, Helen Blahalek, Dick Stevens, John Sidebottom, Bob Smith, and Pete Stranges. Two of this group, Yolanda Grubmeyer and Dick Stevens, graduate in June 1935. The Boosters this term did real constructive work, and, with the help and spirit of the student body backing them, they should continue to be the "Boosting Boostersf' --al 101 le- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 -.4 :Egg qggqn..

Here at Germantown, it takes the form of the Sen- ate. Senators and Alter- nates for this body are elected by the various record classes. All rules governing the Student body are passed by these representatives. Meet- ings are held the first ltfonday of every month, at which time the members of the Committee of Ten make their reports. A tax of five cents is collected every term from the members of the school. This money is used for the purchase of HGV' Pins, for donations to the Stu- dents' Assistance Fund, for the Senate Dance, and all other expenses in- curred during a term. Bfany illustrious names from the Class of June, '35 appeared in this ternfs rolls. Betty Bliss was the effi- cient representative from Book Une. Kathryn Frazer represented Book Two, fulfilling her duties in her usual, quiet, dependable manner. The Sena- tor from Book Three was Ed Geb- hardt, and Alan ltfoyer headed Book Four. Book Five was led by Roy Shu- bert. Roy has been a Senator from his F term, and accordingly the Sen- ate was no new story to him. He ful- filled this job in his usual, inimitable, efficient way. llary Vollrath was the Senator from Book Six. Mary, also, has been active in executive affairs and proved an asset to the class. Alternates of the class were: Ralph Barley. Alonzo Clifford, Jane Hobson. Marjorie lfiller. Lucile Sauder. and Dick Stevens. Gym team captain. i "G" Pin winner, and gen- eral all-around man, Bob Connor, was president of the Senate this term. Vfith his executive abil- ity, excellent judgment. and line leadership he has been an inspiration to the entire school. Witty, pretty Jane Read of "Bliss Finney' fame was an equally fine vice-president. tYith these two at the head of the Student Government it is no wonder that this term of the senate has lJ9l'I1 so suc- cessful. No Senate article would be com- plete without mention of its clever gum-drop cultivating sponsor, Bfr. Strauss. Those who have had him in a class know him as the one who can make the story of the tariff interesting and who tells those grand farm stories. But in Senate lffeetings it is he who brings order out of chaos and helps straighten out the affairs of the Senate. The Senate is one of the outstand- ing activities of the school. Those who are its members are the best of the school. It is a body to be respected and obeyed. There is no doubt that if all the representatives of this legis- lative body are of the caliber of the present representatives from the senior class, Germantown High School will retain its fine name and reputation. --:il 103 Ii:- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 ...qi gay 3 g n 3... THE CLIPPER HE Glipper Offfce-where homework and notes are prepared and copied, where puns and wisecracks reign supreme, where controversial subjects of the day are expounded, and where, incidentally, the work for the Glipper, the school newspaper is done. This is a kaleidoscopic view of what greets the outside observer. But working on the Glipper Staff isn,t all fun. Proof of this is the four- page edition published by the staff every other Tuesday. To the clanging tune of typewriters, four flat tenors trying to sing "St. Louis Bluesf, and the general chatter and hub-bub, the writer must prepare his copy. lNIr. Coleman is faculty adviser of this group and Frances Nemerov, editor, the second girl ever to hold this position. Burton Wenkos, Sports Editor, Margaret Smith, News Editor, Lois Ozier, Copy Editor, and Arthur Silber, General Business Manager are the senior members of the staff, and a goodly number of "Av students are members of the contributing staff. A staff member is expected to be a human dictionary and encyclopedia, and must be able to spell anything from uagnosticismu to "zythm,,, and know the number of mothers in the Hfothers' Association. Stories are written on envelopes, or on the back of chance test papers, and, on rare occasions, on regular composition paper. There is always a noted scarcity of pencils, ink, and erasers. The Glipper is a means of conveying the latest in school news to the student body and providing for the expression of literary talent. It keeps those at Germantown High in close contact with the school, as well as adording an enjoyable and profitable activity to the journalistic-minded student. -'sal 104 rp.- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 --ug Q11 - rg 1 fi, Q ,A ll 9.... THE CLIVEDEN HE year 1935 has been the twentieth Anniversary of the Clireden lVIagazine. As old as the school, its career has been as wide and suc- cessful. The first fifteen years oftits existence, it was the only medium of news in the school. With the advent of the Glipper, the Glireden became what it is now,-an outlet for the literary talent of the school. The ltlagazine has won honors at the Columbia Scholastic Press Assof ciation for several years, and also at the Pennsylvania Association. VVithin the past two years, radical changes have been made in the physical make-up and contents of the Glireden. This renovation was started by Don Cooke in September 1933, and has been furthered by the succeeding editors. At the same time that Don Cooke became Editor, NIL Jones took over the advisership of the magazine. Prior to that, Mrs. Pennycook had been its mentor. lNIr. Jones has proved a wise and fair helper to the editors and to the staffs. For the past two terms Lucile Sauder has been editor. This term Arthur Lewis was Assistant Editor, and Doris Townsend was Poetry Editor. On the business end, Gene Silver, Betty Kershaw, and Arthur Silber have been diligent workers. The Mfagazine has had the benefit of the finest artists in the school. Last term Dot Passant was Art Editor, this term, Ruth Whaley, Betty Jeffries, and Jack Reichel have all been assets in this branch of the work, and the twenty-one Seniors of the StaH this term have been a talented group. It is no wonder, with such support, that the Glireflen is a top-ranking Magazine. --:gl 105 Ir:-4 ...q.- 0 W THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 plgg-q.... CLARENCE N and Saturday eve- Mrs. Martin.. , .... Barbara Weiss, Betty Brill ning-S, Llay 31-d and 4th, the Mr. Wheeler. .. ..4. Burt Kniveton, Bill Senior play, "Clarence,', written by Booth Tarkington, was presented by the Senior Class. It was a rollicking comedy of the adventures of an ex- doughboy whose sole achievement seemed to be that he could drive a mule team without the use of profane language. The story concerns his entrance into the scrappy family of a prominent, tired business man, and his success in relieving the situation by removing the bone of contention, in the person of the lovely young governess whom he marries. The audience rocked with laughter when the scion of the fam- ily, young Bobby VVheeler and his at- tractive sister, Cora, fought tooth and nail about everything and anything to the consternation of the timid Clar- ence. The 'gblissfulv home life of the VVheelers and the eternal triangles that grew up around the ex-soldier with liver trouble, were the back- grounds of this case of mistaken iden- tity and love-in-a-sun-room play in four acts. , The play terminated a feverish struggle stretched over about three months, in which practically the whole class participated. The main plank in the platform, of course, was the cast under the able direction of Bliss hlarion Prince of the English Depart- ment. They attended, we hope, the major part of the rehearsals and cer- tainly were well rewarded by the final productions. Both casts were as follows: Mrs. Wheeler ..,,.,.., Betty Bliss, Betty Kershaw Bobby Wheeler. .,...,. Louis Black, William Wimer Cora Wheeler. ....

Of course we must not forget the ladies behind the curtain who gave the lines to those who needed them, the prompters, Frances Nemerov and Lucile Sauder. Our tall stalwarts on the stage crew also deserve a round of applause. The boys who rushed about with hammers, nails, and odd bits of scenery were Harrison Dotts and his six little dis- ciples.

CLASS DOINGS ODAY, marked with four years of high school associa- tion within these portals, we take our leave of this, which has been our life, our work, and so much of every day to us. All that we have claimed and enjoyed must be left as heritage to those who follow. VVe can only take, in departure, the memo- ries set forth on these pages. Bewildered innocents we were when first We came to Germantown, and in the great perplexity of the average freshman and sophomore We, in- quiringly, poked our noses into every- thing. We explored the school from the humming engine room to the dim fourth floor corridor. VVe were initiated into thc mysteries of such high subjects as geometry, and we barely managed to control our stom- achs long enough to disect and exam- ine a dead frog in Biology class. At our entrance into the "D H term Dr. Seeley appointed, with geometric precision and artistic execution, hfr. Rothermel and Miss Freehafer to the advisership of our class, and, at the same time we selected our class officers. Ellisiv Andersen and Vin- cent VValsh were chosen as presidents, Kathryn Frazer and Bob Connor as vice-presidents, Mary Yollrath and Ed Bickel as secretaries, and Jane Cohalan and Alex Wallace as treasurers. VVe had several class assemblies to complete our organization and the treasurers managed to collect the grand sum of ten cents from of us-our first payment toward class dues. Vlle then advanced to S'C's,' with less evidence of our previous wide- eyed state and a certain sophistica- tion acquired only in high school. The class held a meeting early in lllarch and we selected our oflicers, choosing Ellisiv Anderson and Bob Connor as presidents, Kathryn Frazer and Ed Bickel as vice-presidents, lVIary Vollrath and Alex YVallace as secretaries, and Jane Cohalan and Dick Stevens as treasurers. An innovation at the election was the selection of Doris Townsend and Bill Wimer as historians. Our organization was quickly widened by the selection of com- mittees and groups to handle the great amount of work that was to be done. The ring committee with Dorothy Gerhardt and Joseph Gart- ner as Chairmen was choosen along with the Party Committee which had Yolanda Grubmeyer and Donald Peters as heads. Then came the Party! It was the highlight of the term, our first social event. It was the fifteenth of Nlay, and remember how it rained! The entertainment started in the audi- torium with a very amusing playtin which Dick Stevens, clad in shorts, starred in a humorous role. VVas he embarrassed-well that goes without saying. Refreshments were served in Room 301 and then we retired to the gym for dancing. A C. W. A. orches- tra supplied the music and a varied and colorful floor show was pre- sented. It was a grand party and we all left with happy hearts but with tired feet. --QI 108 Is-- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 ...qt Qu That term many of the members of our class became active in club work and were elected to oHices in these organizations. Some of the boys and girls were admitted to Hi-Y groups and others did active work on the Clipper and Glireden Staffs. At the beginning of the "B" term we re-elected our former officers and committees were appointed to handle the vast amount of work on hand. Miss Prince agreed to coach our Senior Play and Jane Read, Roy Shubert, Alex VVallace, Betty Ker- shaw, Ed Kling and Ruth Breiden- back composed a committee to read plays and select one suitable for our class to present. Our party that year was on the eighteenth of December. A short humorous skit was given. in the audi- torium in which Bob Richards san.g several songs, Bobbie VVeiss recited, nearly wringing her hands off in the process, and several of the girls pre- formed group dances. Refreshments were served in Room 300 and dancing followed in the gym. That term the editor and staff of the CLASS RECORD BooK were choosen and they started to work early in January. Then our "A" term! We now were truly eligible to that high and dignified title, "Seniors" Our high school days were rapidly nearing their close. So much was done that term. VVe selected our officers early in October and choose Ellisiv Anderson and Ed. Bickel as presidents, Kathryn Frazer and Dick Stevens as vice-presidents, Diary Vollrath and Arthur Lewis as secretaries, and Jane Cohalan and Ed Kling as treasurers. 1j -ay... The Senior Prom committee was headed by Jane Read and Ed. Hyde and they selected Old York Road Country Club as the place to hold our dance. Friday night, June 7 was chosen as the date and Jack Delmar's orchestra supplied the music. Re- member the grand time we had? VVill you ever forget it? It was all we dreamed our Prom should be, and even more. Fred Clapp and Harriet Hibbs headed the Party Committee a.nd Elleanore Clark, Betty VVhy, Clifford Gilpin, Bob Logan., and llelville Freas acted as aides. The party was a fine example of their very hard work. The Senior Luncheon Committee had Bob Connor and Jeanette Bauer as Chairmen and Bill VVarner, Alex VVallace, Dick Schilling, Roberta Campbell, Ernestine Potts, and Jane Hobson served under them. All their plans met with well merited success. Yvhat a lovely time We had, the last time that all of us were together. And "Clarence" on Friday and Saturday nights, the third and fourth of May! Will we ever forget it? Senior plays will come and Senior plays will go, but We will hold ours up before any for close scrutiny. lt was a grand production, and how hard Ruth Breidenback, publicity manager, and Louis Cohen, ticket chairman, had to work. To them, the members of the cast "Clarence" such a fine along with who made production, a vote of thanks! And now it,s over and We're leaving has been so near to us, this which leaving it forever.

SENIOR PROM BEVY of resplen- dent girls and youths invaded the gaily decorated ball- room at the Old York Road Country Club on Friday night, June seventh. It was our Prom! The occasion we planned for, dreamed about, and imagined for ages, was row a reality. Jack Delmar's easy rhythms soon Hooded the ballroom and We were olf. The orchestra of ten pieces played modern melodies much in the manner of Casa Loma, and Jack Darby was the featured vocalist. Bright ginghams, gay taffetas, sleek crepes, and demure laces added a wealth of color and beauty to the scene, and were a striking contrast against the more subdued attire of all the male escorts. A novelty exhibition dance was performed by Muriel Manship and Alfred Vvebb and there was a lucky number dance participated in by all. Dr. Seely and hlrs. Seely, Blr. and llrs. Raacke, llr. and hlrs. Rother- mel, and Bliss Freehafer were the faculty guests who were present. The committee that planned the prom was headed by Edwin Hyde and Jane Read who, besides keeping the committee members in hysterics and stitches, proved that good can come from hilarity. Those serving under them were Dicky Schwelier, Adelaide Phillips, Peggy Gawthrop, John Gleason, Harrison Dotts, Fred Brink,Yolanda Grubmeyer, Carl Boyer, and Louis Black. To them, all of the credit is due for making the prom such a grand success. At the first meetings the committee decided upon the place and the price of the tickets, and the members then went to the senior classes to approximate the number of couples that would attend. It was found that there would be about one hundred and fifty, and arrangements were made with this number as a basis. After this, the orchestra was se- cured and the decorations and the entertainment decided upon. Then the night came. We all arrived at the country club in gay, festive spirits, bound to have a good time. hfelody, puns, and songs reigned supreme. Everybody was happy and we forgot all about school for a night. At one o'clock the or- chestra packed their instruments, the lights were lowered, we donned our wraps, and then set out on the long road for home, and now our prom is just a hazy memory that we will always cherish. The tunes, the faces, the good time, and the laughter have all been laid away in lavender to treasure as one of the high lights of our school days. --al 110 Im-- -G 3231: ----W E , THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 THE SPORTSMANSHIP TROPHY presented to Germantown High School in recognition ry' jing ieam work among the high schools of the city REQ- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 "f' I4 fgggqn- SENIOR CLASS OF JUNE, 1935 Athletic Honors and Records I-First Letter or Large G II-Second Letter or Block G III-Numerals BARLEY, RALPH Gym, III, '34, Gym Leader, '32.

Scores! Fumbles! Pen- alties! F OOTBALL! Such exclamations im- mediately recall to our memories the peppiest, heartiest season of the year. The time when school spirit and enthu- siasm runs high, when the last period on Friday seems the longest and the most boring of the week, when the Germantownites, decked in green and white caps an.d socks, wave pennants while running to catch the trolley car. All these signs point to only one thing. FOOTBALL! lVho can forget the thrill of that first game with Olney when the Bears stopped the enernyis attack on their own two-yard line and then retaliated by scoring a touchdown. Al Stewart, who was standing in the end zone, snared one of Charlie Dukes' passes. This was good for six points, and later proved to be the margin of victory. How the predictions for the rest of the season were strewn about. VVhat a disappointment was in store for us! VVith each succeeding defeat at the hands of our opponents, West Phila- delphia, Central, Gratz, an.d North- east, our enthusiasm was dampened, but never our spirits. All who were at the Frankford game were thrilled by the courageous exhibition of our stellar fullback, Dick VVoltemate. Thrice he was knocked out, but thrice he came back for more. But then even gridders must graduate, and those graduating in the June,,35 class are Louis Black, Bill Vliatson, Dick Schil- ling, and Bernie Gold- stein, the temporary cap- tain. They all have played their last game for Germantown High School. On the other hand, 6'Pop', Gideon has acted as coach for the Green and Vlihite for the last time. He has officially resigned his position and Blr. Tierney will take up the reins. "Pop" deserves a great deal of acclaim for the effort he has put in on the team. In 1914 he became a member of Germantown's faculty and also assisted lXIr. Davidson in coach- ing football. Some four years ago, at the latter's death, "Pop" was ap- pointed head pilot of the team. In retrospect DIL Gideon has seen many players come and go. The outstand- ing ones among the long list of men he has developed are Berry, who later became All-American, Louis Hayes, one of the finest schoolboy centers, Barrowitz, Stan Sokolis, Johnnie Gil- lespie, and Fred Benner. "Pop" stated that Benner was one of the best and most accurate drop kickers that he ever saw. He also claims that present-day teams are far more ad- vanced than those of yesteryear. To- day's teams know more about both fundamentals and fine points. "Why I could have taken our past season's fC07ZfiTl7lCd on page 1211 .al 114 11:-A . THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 ..-.QQAQQ BASKETBALL TEAM F THE basketball rules had been changed so as to es- tablish a third 6'half" to the game, we German- townites might have boasted of a different score. In every game the Bears never began to play until the second half. But-when that second period did come- how they did play! Every time, we fell short of victory by a mere few points. One time, however, the team did emerge victorious in one of the most thrilling games possible. WVhat team member or spectator at the West Philadelphia game will forget how, with the score 20 to 18 against Germantown and one minute left to play, Art Thompson from past midcourt, shot a field goal to tie the score. Then, after being fouled, and after the game was officially over, he made good his free shot and brought victory to Germantown! The present graduating class had a good representation on the team. There were Jack Rich, the captain, Bill Stone, and Mel Freas. All of these boys played crackerjack games and the class may well be proud of them. The basketball team has left a moral worth remembering for future use, not only in sports but in life. VVhen you start lighting for something start right away. Don't wait until its half over. IIE-rw TRACK TEAM ERE was one team that gave G e r m a n t o w n great hopes. The cinder- men started the season with many leftovers, and they certainly showed their stuff. And did they make a fine showing in the Penn Relays! Although con- testing against many other schools, they man- -- aged, nevertheless, to walk off with a second and fourth place in two relay events. VVe call that work! The members of the track team that graduate with our class are: Don Peters, Bill Jones, Otis Terry, Al Bob- row, Raymond Sugan, Lloyd Britting- ham and William Watson. All of these fellows were willing and hard workers and deserve much credit for their con- scientious efforts. As the graduation day draws near, once again these athletes, like others in the past, put away their spikes and their track suits, end their rigid train- ing and daily practice. All these ma- terial remains of days gone by will be put aside, but the thoughts and the remembrances of those grilling days, of those close contests, of those inti- mate friendships-they will never be put away. In years to come, the memories of those incidents will re- turn and with them that sense of pride and loyalty of having really served Our School! '-:AI 115 THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 ...QTQQII 1 .p.... SOCCER TEAM LTHOUGH soccer is little heard of, and although its whole season was played unaccompanied by brass bands and cheering coeds, it was, nevertheless, played with that customary spirit and sparkle that is characteristic of all Germantoxx-'n's coached aggregations. Only three times out of their eight contests did the Clivedens meet defeat. Twice they emerged victorious. The remaining times, they were held in a deadlock. T he class was well represented on the team by Joe Benamy, Bill Stone, Thompson VVatts, and Arthur Lichterman. Joe Benamy was the high scorer of the season with four goals to his credit. It was through G6I'II13,I1t0YVI1,S surprise tie with Frankford that the championship fell to Northeast High School. None of the team members vsill ever forget either that grueling battle or the grit that Bill VValters, the co-captain displayed. Playing all over the field at once, he didnit stop until he was carried off the field unconscious, as a result of an accident. That spirit, exemplified by the captain, the spirit of fight and battle, was the only thing that upheld the morale of the team. No screaming crowds, no cheering students, no clashing newspaper headlines,-nothing to cheer them on. Only the personal desire to play, to play hard, enabled the team to gain such a fine record. Although soccer will probably never hold a place of great interest in Germantown, nevertheless, with such a spirit of fight and pep as shown by this team, it will certainly never completely die out.

GYM TEAM ERHAPS Germantown wasn't in swing when it cam: to football and basketball, but it certainly did giant swings when it came to the gym team. VVith every added victory the school's athletic interest in- creased. Finally at the end of the season, Germantown found itself second to only one other team, Olney. But, for individual honors, the Bears were right on top! Neither the members of the gym team n.or the fans will forget that in almost every meet, Dave Danserls name appeared at the head of the list, nor will they forget that, at the final championships, his name appeared once gain, this time for a new and greater honor--the individual Public High School championship. The graduating class may well be proud of the gym teamls record. For, after all, the majority of the team was composed of June '35 graduates. First of all there was the captain, Bob Connor, then Alonzo Clifford, Dan Pressman, Bill Viiarner, Ed Hyde, and Oscar VVhiting. A fine showing for our class! With the approaching graduation manytoftthe members will put away their gym suits and their sneaks. Few of them will ever find themselves performing on the bars, on the rings, or on the mats as extensively as they have done during their high school years. But none of them will stow away and forget the friendship and comradeship of their high school team days. Together they have climbed the ropes to great heights. Now, separately, may they climb the rings to the highest bar of success.

This team has shown one of the most promising outlooks of any of Ger- mantown,s athletic ad- ventures this past year. In addition to this, the team could well have bragged of two of the best pitchers in the Public High League. These were Nfonroe and VVatts, regu- lar first-class hurlers. But we graduates also had our share of fellows on the team. In addition to the strike-out ace, Thompson Wlatts, there were Joe Benamy, Philip Blee- , han, Bill Stone, and Carl Seeger. All these lent a hand in rolling up a good record for the baseball team. The team had some tough breaks, as all teams do. One of the hardest to bear occurred in the Gratz game. After hold- ing a tie for the last seven innings, Gratz pushed over its winning run in the last half of the ninth! Tough luck, but it's all in the game. Soon we'll expect to find these stars from Germantown's diamond starring on bigger diamonds. VVho can tell which one will be a major league hero? And all these fellows certainly have the stuff. So here's to you-you base- ball men-to bigger and better scores, more hits, and more home runs on the diamond of success! nq119kH THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 ...qt :QI mega- I GYMKHANA SHOVV of Sh0ws-GYlNIK- HANA! A show which is as good as one done by pro- fessionals. There were dances, tumb- ling, a review of sports, an exhibition of games, and singing. There were all sorts of dances, toe, tap, soft shoe, and modern. The costumes were most attractive. The tap and soft shoe dances were done by large groups, while the toe, modern, and eccentric dances were done by groups of about twelve or fifteen. The toe dancers looked charming in their silver and black costumes, and the modern dancers resembled autum ri leaves in their vari-colored tunics. Those in the eccentric dance made a hit, half of them in blue overalls and straw hats, the other half in red blouses and short plaid skirts. The type of tumbling exhibited was something new. Never before in Germantown High School have the boys and girls worked together. This was tried and proved very successful. The boys and girls made eight pyra- mids and every move was made with the greatest precision. Between the pyramids, individuals performed, win- ning much applause for their demon- strations. It can never be said that this act did not make an extra-special hit with the audien.ce, or I should say the audience, all but one gentleman, who seemed to think the shorts too short, and the distance between the bottom of the shorts and the top of the socks too long. Clmagine such im modesty ! U There were two drills. One was done by the boys and the other by the --sf 120 Ie THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 ...Q-Qu - girls. The girls, drill was a contrast of the types of exercises done in motherss day and those done now. The drill by the boys was a club swinging drill. Swinging clubs is tricky enough to do, but when one is on a rather crowded stage it is so easy to meet someone else's head. For- tunately, no such thing occurred. One of the numbers was done with jumping ropes by a group of girls. The program was made more inter- esting by the demonstrations of two teams, one a men's and the other a BE sp... women's, from the Philadelphia Turn- gemeinde. Both teams were cham- pions. The women performed on the parallel bars while the men worked on the horizontal bar. Judging by the 6'0hs,' and "Ahs,, that were heard, it is certain that most of the audience had never before seen such exhibi- tions. Everyone who saw Gymkhana will agree that it was extraordinary and interesting entertainment and will hope to see many more as good.

VVhen a new step is being shown to the Dancing Club, the space around the stand resembles a bargain counter in the basement of a department store. This term the girls were trained not only for the gym meet, but for the festival commemorating the " Three Hundredth Anniversary of the Establishment of Secondary Education in Americaw held at Convention Hall. The at- tractive costumes and the excellence of the dances were proven by the appreci- ation of the audience at the celebration, and, as for the gym meet, the first place in dancing was awarded to a member of our own class, Betty VVhy. Gym Leaders seemed most popular with the seniors. So many more came out than in past years, and they have all done good work in helping the teacher. It seems that our class enjoys watching the gym meet more than partici- pating. It was rather hard to get a team together. This is partly due to the fact that there are not many girls in the class who take pleasure in gymnastics. There were some "game sportsn who went through the whole meet with strained ankles, and a few more who were recruited two days before the meet. One could easily call this gym meet a 'Kshort storyf, because there was cer- tainly a struggle involved. There was a good turnout for track and baseball. It must have been the "call of the great out-of-doorsf, but with all this work, only two girls in the class have won the highest honor that can be received for athletic attainment. The two who received this, the varsity G, are Betty Why and Ethel lVIcDer- mott. To them, and to all our girl athletices, we wish good cheer, and the best of luck! -4:41 122 Ib-A 310m ga W 1 El 1 W 1 I! THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 ---'tv 3lu, JE ep... DEBATING CLUB ROSPECTIVE lawyers, jurors, and judges find outlet for their talents! This startling announcement sounds like an unplausible newspaper headline, but it is actually fulfilled by the Debating Club. That age old adage, "it takes two to make an argumentf' has urged would-be aspirants to the forensic art to look around for likeeminded souls. Such souls may be found in this Club. mln short," as llr. lylicawber would say, it appeals to various types of students, the willing speakers, ardent listeners, and fair- minded arbiters. The purpose of the Debating Club is to train the students in the art of debating and of public speaking. This is well accomplished under the super- vision of the sponsers lV1iss Ege and llr. Arnold, who have had charge of the club since its beginning. The debates are given by four members who volun.teer in advance to debate on a topic. After they have presented both sides, the meeting is thrown open to a general discussion of the same question. This permits each member to express his own ideas. lNIomentous current questions are often settled in this discussion,-at least they are settled to the satisfaction of the club, if not to the world at large. Occasionally outside speakers, former students, lawyers, or faculty members are invited to address the group. lNIuch of the success of the club is due to the cooperation among the members, the sponsors and the ofhcers: President, Harriet Wurmang Vice- President, Henry Pommerg Secretary, Nlary Vollrath. VVith this support the club has attained the active position it now holds in our school life. --al 124 Ia-- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 ..-.fe QL f Jay... COMMERCIAL CLUB HE Commercial.

Any twelve A or B student is eligible for membership in this organ.ization, and from the members, the oifcers of the club are elected. The officers, elected in the fall term of 1934, were re-elected for the Spring 1935 term. These officers are: President, ltlary Davis, Vice-President, Marion Black, Secre- tary, Blarian Brinkworthg Treasurer, Louise fisher. Each term the Commercial Club, in conjunction with the entire Com- mercial Department, gives a demonstration in the assembly. This is to brnxg to the attention of the other members of the student body, the Work that is being done in that department. The dues which are collected from the members provides two prizes of five dollars each. One of these prizes is awarded to the best commercial boy student, and the other prize to the best commercial girl student. The rest of the money received from dues is put to such purposes as filling Christmas Stockings for children. and making up baskets for poor families. The members of the club arrange for their own social functions, which provide the entertainment. This club enables the commercial students to form many friendships among their fellow students, which will endure long after they have graduated. .af 125 Ie-- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 ...opfgfj AST June the Germantown Hi-Y celebrated its tenth An- . niversary. For ten years this, one of the finest organizations of the school, has been holding fine meet- ings, for ten years doing service to the school, for ten years helping to develop boys into finer citizens for the community, for the state, and for the nation. If a boy is required to practice these high ideals of the Hi-Y platform and purpose in his youth, he will surely carry them into his later life.

Greene, the ad- viser, Hi-Y hs done them a world of good. CHI RHO HI-Y HI RHO is a . unique club, diierent in every Tuesday night, gives to the high school boy, beside fine fellowship, the best speak- ers available to young people. Some of these have been Mr. L. P. Hoyer, Principal of VVagner Junior High School, Mr. Roland, Principal of Northeast High Schoolg Reverend D. F. Singley, Nlr. Louis Gordon, Barney Berlinger, and "Rusty" Cal- low. Besides the speaker of the evening, a member of the facultyiis invited. In the course of theiyear several special meetings are held, such as the joint meeting with the Girls' Hi-Y, the meeting with Chi Rho, the Hi-Y conclave, which is a meeting of the five Hi-Yis in the vicinity, the Mother's and Sonis Dinner, the Father's and Sonis Dinner, and the picnic at Camp Tinicum with the Girls, Hi-Y. Each of these meetings has a special purpose in furthering the ideals of Hi-Y. The oflicers of the club are: Presi- that it was the first club organized by the Y. M. C. A. for Y. M. C. A. boys and not connected with any particular high school. An employed boys' club had been func- tioning for about tent years. In 1931, looking over the group, it was dis- covered that they were very few em- ployed boys, but that most of them were boys in high school, and that a Hi-Y program would probably be best suited to their needs. Mr. Pitt, Assistant Boys' Secretary, was au- thorized to present the Hi-Y program to them. The boys of that group en- thusiastically adopted the program and, choosing the name 'KChi Rho,', took their place among the Hi-Y Clubs of the Germantown Area. They have an interesting program each ltlonday night which includes a dinner prepared under the direction of the boys. In 1933, Mr. S. R. Bryson, popularly known as '6Doc,', became adviser of the club and Chi Rho continues to go places and --:rl 126 Ia-- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 .mg-ml do things under his able leadership. This organization has been inter- ested in performing service projects around the Y. M. C. A., leading boys' clubs, and putting on special activities such as the annual Halloweien Party and helping with the Dormitory Kiddies' Party. It also had the dis- lj -44... us to find our place in the community and to realize and fulfil our duties as a citizen of it. Under the leadership of the officers, Jane Read, President, Mildred VVright, Vice-President, Adelaide Philips, Treasurer, and Kathleen An- derson, Secretary, Hi-Y has taken an active interest in the Youth Confer- tinction of sending the largest delega- tion in the state to the State Hi-Y Con- vention which was held last fall at Coatesville. Similar to other Hi-Y Clubs, Chi Rho holds an An- nual Blothers' and Sons, Dinner, an Annual Fathers' and THE platform of I-li-V is clean speech, clean sports, clean scholarship, and clean living. ences held in the churches of German- town sending dele- gates to attend the meetings, hearing their reports and holding discussions, continuing the work started there. One of the most pleasant features of Sons, Dinner, participates in various Hi-Y Conclaves, and has a prominent speaker at each regular meeting. Those in the "A" Class who are members of Chi Rho are: Dick Stevens, Cliff Gilpin, Roy Shubert, Mel Freas, Jack Reichl, and Bill Senior. Chi Rho is affiliated with the State Hi-Y Association and at the present writing it ranks seventh among the hundreds of Hi-Y Clubs in this state. GIRLS' HI-Y CLUB T IS the aim of a Hi-Y organiza- tion to uphold faithfully the ideals of their club. To accom- plish the Hi-Y purpose the girls, with the help of their sponsor and friend, Miss Mulliken, undertake some form of community Work each term, such as assisting in the annual Welfare drive, or helping to supervise children at a settlement house. Hi-Y helps Hi-Y is the dinner held once a month at the Y. W. C. A. Besides having a good time, talking and singing to- gether in a home-like atmosphere, the ,giivlsl receive inspiration and help in theinformal talks by speakers who are really interested in young people. Through its affiliation with Y. M. C. A. the club participates in the many additional activities, such as a swimming parties and the spring picnic held at Camp Tinicum together with the Boys, Hi-Y. Only those who have been Hi-Y members can really appreciate what a privilege it is to enjoy its benefits. The friends they have made and the guidance they have received through the meetings will be a constant reminder of Hi-Y. VVe hear that D.

DRAMATIC CLUB HE Dramatic Club has had a long and distinguished career as one of the out- standing student activi- ties of Germantown High School. It was organized in 1916,underDr.JohnE. Mason, and boys only were included in its mem- bership. In the first play that the boys presented, the young gentleman por- traying the role of a girl didn't altogether click. ladies, heretofore left out in the cold, were invited into the organization. From that time until now, girls and boys of our school have worked hand in hand for the glory of the Dramatic Club. During this semester, Dick Stevens was president, Kay Anderson, vice- presidentg Alice Styver, secretary, and Stuart Cowan, treasurer. At the meetings the business comes be- fore pleasure. Blinutes are read, followed by the various committee reports. A list of current Philadelphia stage shows is read with a brief resume of each. After the business meeting, either a short one-act play is presented, or an alumnist, who has followed the theatre, returns to give to the club an enjoyable slant on the stage. Attendance at the meetings is encouraged by a prize awarded every three weeks. The club aims to give plays by well known playwrights such as Milne, Barrie, Morley, and Tarkington. Hence, the Under the able leadership of Bliss Marion Prince and Dr. John E. lV1ason, a high standard of acting will be maintained. The delightful comedy, ulilrfight Qjf, coached by Dr. hlason and given after the regular school hours, was a fine example of the dramatic ability of some of the club mem- bers. Later in the season the crowning dramatic event, the Senior Play, Clarence, which was coached by Miss Prince, and included in its cast Dick Stevens, Jane Read, Dickie Schwef- fler, Janice Smith, Willie VVimer, Ed. Bickel, Elleanore Clark, and Dorothy Carfagno, members of Dramatic Club. During the past ten years, the Dramatic Club has added broadcast- ing to its activities. This season qjlllfid Gopperjield was presented over the radio, and we were proud to hear our amateur actors interpret the im- mortal characters so ably. The club on numerous occasions has been happy to present gifts to the school. These have been used for the athletic fund, the student,s as- sistance fund, the library, and for stage scenery and equipment. This past term it has had a selective membership of from eighty to ninety students, each of whom will recall with fond memory their' high school days. Hence, we say, "Adieu!,, May the Dramatic Club forge ahead to glean fresh laurels and bring new triumphs to Germantown High School. --21 130 In-A THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, .mp-Q5 1935 FOOTLIGHT CLUB 4lo HE,F00tlightClub has been active since the beginning of our school in 1915. lt has always been under the leadership of hfiss Young, and recently 1NIr. Jones became the co- sponsor. It was origin- ally an all girls, club and the boys needed for the male parts were bor- rowed from the Dra- matic Club or selected from English classes. Quite a few boys were given a start in dramatic work with these parts. After the co-educational system was introduced in Germantown High School, membership was opened to boys and girls in thc upper classes. The Footlight Club was the first to conceive the idea of an after school performance. The first play with which they carried out this idea was Booth Tarkington,s "Seventeen" The profits from the play helped a great deal in the creation of our pres- ent stage: it helped to buy the velvet curtains, the inner drape, and a large part of the scenery and the fur- niture. They also contributed toward the purchase of the interchangeable set. The organization has also pre- sented several one-act plays for our morning assembly programs. You may recall S' Vlleenies on Wlednesdayf' 'SFarewell Cruel VVorld,', Little Vllom- men,', "'l he Yaliantf, 'STwo Crooks and a Ladyf' and "Submerged.,' Each term the club holds a party to -.S which the alumni are in- vited. In this way the sponsors are able to keep in touch with the former members. hfany of these gradua tes have continued their study of the drama and the stage. Aside from the new members' play, the pro- grams for the meetings included an interesting lecture by Morton Tec- kosky, a student from the Temple University, who discussed the fundamentals concerned when one produces a play and a very interesting lecture given by hir. Bryon Vllalton of the Alden Park Manor Players. The Club enjoyed a delightful evening at Alden Park Blanor at the presentation of Jerome K. Jerome,s "The Passing of Third Floor Backf, The officers of the club for this term are Alex VVallace, president, Betty Kershaw, vice-presidentg Jane Cohalan, Secretaryg Ralph Barley, Treasurer. The entertainment for the meeting is arranged by Betty Keys, the chairman of the program committee. The Footlight Club has always been well represented in the Senior Play. This term Alex VVallaee and Yolanda Grubmcyer have leading roles in the play, "Clarence.', Other important roles are taken by Betty Kershaw, VVilliam Senior, Barbara VVeiss, Joseph Breen, Josephine Carey, and Louise Griepenkerl. --11 131 Ia- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 --o-go w !- LATIN CLUB OFFICERS GERMAN CLUB M11 132 1p- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 ...qs-QM LATIN CLUB HE Latin Club, under the leadership of Miss Hutchings, is one of the most interesting and educational groups at German- town. It was the first club started in school and has grown until its mem- bership is one of the largest of all the clubs. Both upper an.d lower class- men are welcome to join, providing that they take Latin. This club endeavors to give the student a better understanding and appreciation of Roman life and cus- toms in an interesting manner. The monthly meetings, arranged by the officers with the help of Miss Hutch- ings, carry out this purpose by means of talks and sketches given by the club members and occasionally by outside speakers. The most popular features of the meetings is Miss Hutchings' general information games that reveal how observing or unob- serving students are, by such simple questions as, "What direction does the statue of William Penn on top of City Hall face?" This term the officers were: Ade- laide Lamb, President, Spencer Brad- ford, Vice-Presidentg Jean Boyd, Secretary, Jean lNIaguire, Treasurer. The continued interest in the meet- ings proved their success as leaders. This club not only has many educa- tional advantages, but it also en.ables the students to become better ac- quainted at the party held at the end of each term. Through these contacts made in the classrooms and in clubs are the memories of tomorrowkept alive. It is these good times associated with school work that make high school what it is. naw... GERMAN CLUB HAVEN of knowledge for German students" should really be the title of our Ger- man Club, for this is a group com- posed of information seekersg those German students who are ever anx- ious to know more about Germany and the German people. This Club has held a notable place in the extra-curricular activities of the Germantwon High School for many years. In 1926 a group of in- terested students who were anxious to form a German Club organized under the sponsorship of Dr. Hausemann who is still, willingly and helpfully, caring for this organization. The limiting of club membership seemed an undemocratic principle, and since democracy had been preached to the American high school student since time eternal, any stu- dent taking German is welcome to become a member. The club has done much in familiar- izingits members with German life, art and culture. VVhatis more appropriate in a High School in Germantown than to develop an interest in German habits, customs, and traditions, since the founders of our community were Ger- man immigrants. It is just a small way of paying a debt to our noble founders. ' The work of this club is carried on through its officers: President, Marian Schmid, Vice-President, Robert Peel, Secretary, Harriet Wurm,ang Treas- urer, Marjory Maytrott. The group this term, though small, is a coopera- tive, working body. Its Work is sure to continue, and to attain greater heights in the years to come. --:AI 133 Is-- THE CLASS RECORD, JUNE, 1935 ....g: 5353 ,- YERYONE knows that there J are definite rules to be obeyed in and around the school building, but some people just seem to like the social contacts they make in Room 310.

Originally, it was under the auspices of the English Club which was started by Miss Manship. After Miss Manshipis retirement in 1932, Miss Ebling became the clubis sponsor. She held this position for two terms, then turned it over to Miss Thorne. A year later, with the disso- lution of the English Club, the Shakespeare Contest was conducted by the Dramatic Club under llliss Prince and Dr. Mason. The contest is not limited to mem- bers of the Dramatic and Footlight Clubs only, but is open to all members of the A, B, and C classes. The con- testants choose their own selections with the advice and assistance of the faculty members in charge of the con- test. They may have two interviews with the sponsors who attempt to aid them in their preparation. The selec- tions must be given in costumes which are provided from the school's costume room, under the direction of Mfiss Allen. A first prize of five dollars is awarded, usually to a Senior, by the Shakespeare Club of the Womcxnis Club, second and third prizes are awarded by the Dramatic Club, a fourth prize is given by the Mothers' Association. The contest is usually held the last Week of the term. The 5th of June was the date this past term. The judges were chosen from the faculty and the Shakespeare Club. While they were deliberating, there was a musical program, and tea served by the committee of the Dramatic Club with Bob Connor as chairman. The outgoing president of the club always presides, therefore, Dick Stevens pre- sided this June. lNIembers of the faculty, the Shake- speare Club, and the Mothers' Asso- ciation are the guests who are invited to attend the contest. The programs are arranged with an attempt at harmony. It is the aim of Miss Prince and Dr. Mason to choose more or less unfamiliar selections. It is with great pride that these sponsors noted that the February contest of this year did not contain 6'To be or not to be,', "The Quality of Mercy' nor 6'The Seven Ages of Manf' There has always been great inter- est in the Shakespeare Contest. It is one of the most exclusive activities in the school, one of the more cultural, formal affairs of the term. It is a pri- vate affair and one may only be admitted by invitation. .it-n.zf:55,,,wLl,Jw -s' 5 -J Q-v X -aM-J 113.
