petition with poems submitted by members of the Senior Class.
"Be wiseg soar not too high to fall, but stoop to TiSCl1-lMASSINGER
Not ours to lift a flaming torch
Whose light will die out in an hourg
Not ours to lift a victor's sword
Whose flame will pass by in a dayg
Not ours to pluck buds of renown
Which droop and wither e'er they flowerg
Not ours the mighty deeds of men
Whose glory too soon fades away:
To us the quiet tasks of life
Which by unselnsh hands are done:
To us the humble, earnest hearts
That seek to serve their fellowmen:
To us the eager, noble minds
Cf greater worth than battles wong
To us the simple, loving deeds
Which live in others' thoughts again.
An honest soul dare not aspire
To rise above its given plane,
And all cannot be conquerors
To spread each name throughout the worldg
But by the meek and lowly way
A lasting peace can be our claim,
And we, triumphant, then may raise
The banner of true fame, unfurled.

1 years of service for
Germantown High School. It has
served the community well in main.
taining high standards of scholastic
achievement for its graduates.
Germantown High School may be
symbolized as a tree of knowledge
in this place of rare and famous
trees. The roots of this tree have
struck deep in this historic soil, and
have nurtured a sturdy oak of tower'
ing strength, a protection to many
against adverse conditions due to a
changing world. It has upheld the
worthy traditions of our forefathers
and it has endeavored to give to the generations past and present those ster
ling qualities of character and achievement needed for a more abundant life
In dedicating this CLASS RECORD and our lives to the ideals of our
Alma Mater, may we wish that the acorns of this tree will germinate in our
hearts, and produce trees of great strength and beauty of service for our
country and posterity.
UNE NINETEEN FORT
Humbly before Thee, great God of all nations,
Begging Thy guidance, before Thee we standg
Teach us, O Father, to make each day worthy
Of the mercy and wisdom of Thy ruling hand.
As now we stand on life's glorious threshold
With youth's hope and courage still fresh in each heart,
Give us an aim an ideal, we may strive for,
From righteousness' path let us never depart.
Teach us to work, from our task turning never,
Tet teach us to bring some good cheer to each day.
Help us to live, and in living to nurture
Some downtrodden creature we find on the way.
Help us to seek a reward not of silver,
But rather to find one in nature's delightsg
All that we ask are the beauties of springtime,
Of flowers, of blue skies, of bright starry nights.
So when through the years, as the past becomes dimmer,
Looking behind, we can say as we die,
"I made each day precious, by work and by striving,
True glories of Heaven have not passed me by."

To the Class of june, 1940:
Your Committee has done well to invite Mr. Samuel N. Baxter to be
its guest writer. You have chosen the tree as the symbol for your book,
and no one could be better fitted than Mr. Baxter to write in keeping with
this symbol or emblem.. For many years he has been interested in our parks
and public squares, and all of the trees on the property of the city are in his
care. No one could better know or more fully appreciate the significance
of trees in the lives of men, nor the qualities which they portray.
For many years also Mr. Baxter has been interested in this school and
the boys and girls whom it serves. A loyal resident of Germantown, he
has been vitally interested in its young people. Read his message carefully.
AS THE TWIG IS BENT
SAMUEL N. BAXTER

REES! What a splendid symbol to characterize the Yearbook of the
Germantown High School Graduating Class of 1940. Tress, typical
of service to mankind, grace, poise, beauty, contentment and ruggedf
ness. And what school in our great land is more entitled to symbolize trees
than Germantown High? Was it not on the very site of the school, as com'
rnemorated by the tablet facing Germantown Avenue, that Christopher
Witt possessed one of the first gardens in the Colonies, antedating even
that of the historic Bartram's Garden on the Schuylkill River?
Four years ago you came to Germantown High, transplanted from
the seed beds of your respective elementary schools. For four years you
have been growing in this nursery, watched over and trained by your faculty
that on this, your graduation day, you might be straight, well rooted and
well branched, as you are today transplanted again to other soils to live
your life in society.
In these four years, some of you may have grown stronger than others,
but all of you have been nurtured, pruned of superfluous branches, staked,
as does the nurseryman, to correct any defects in the habit of branching.
Today the faculty presents you to the world, proud of their product, as
would be any nurseryman who takes pride in growing firstfclass trees.
JUNE -.NINETEEN FORTY
And, personified as such a tree, you possess the ability to bring happif
ness to mankind and an abundant life for yourself. Shun the barren soil of
temptations which, though attractive on the surface, makes for a stunted
growth and decay. Let the roots of your efforts seek the fertile soil of rightf
eousness, that you may experience the joy of a healthy growth, long life,
fruitfulness, and a character, the shade of which mankind will seek for
council, comfort and courage.
Great as may be the faculty's interest in your success and future growth,
even greater is that of your parents. Today they fondly watch your passing
of a milestone along this great highway of life. Your mother and father
are proud of you. To some of them it has been a sacrifice to have you comf
plete these four years. Your graduation is their reward and how they cherish
this event! You owe it to them to seek the fertile soil of high endeavor
and become a healthy tree, for a healthy tree is better fitted to ward off the
evil of insect pests and disease and to bear fruit more abundantly.
" .... every good tree bringeth forth good fruitg but a corrupt tree
bringeth forth evil fruit."
Do not be discouraged if you do not attain the height of a redwood.
A spreading oak gives more shade. If you cannot be a rugged pine, rememf
ber there's grace in a hemlock. There's a place in this world for every kind
of a tree. Select the kind of tree that you admire the most and resolve that
it shall be your inspiration and ambition to be a tree that men will look
And remember, by your fruits shall you be known!
JUNE NINETEEN -.FORT
TO THE CLASS OF JUNE, 1940, I extend
sincere wishes for the future. Your contribuf
tions to the school in scholarship, in student
government and in extrafcurricular activities
will long be remembered.
I May all of you continue your development
along the above lines in a way beneficial to
yourselves and the community. Use the
facilities that our great city offers you in the
way of night schools, vocational schools,
museums, libraries and institutes to increase
your knowledge and your skills. I hope that
each one of you will feel that your education
and training are never finished, but a conf
tinuous progress throughout life.
Germantown graduates have already made
r their mark in the community, some even in
f the country at large. One of the outstanding
early graduates of our school was the late Merritt Hurlburd who directed
"Stella Dallas" and other motion picture successes and was afterwards an
editor of the Saturday Evening Post. Buck Walters, outstanding pitcher of
the National League last year, was one of our boys. Former city councilman
Thomas Minehart was another. The well known novelist Mildred Walker
is a Germantown Alumna. Among our more recent graduates Louis Villalon
is making a name for himself as a magazine editor and as moderator of the
"Philadelphia Town Meeting of the Air. " Joseph de Pasquale whom mostof you
know personally, has just been chosen in nationwide competition to be a
member of the Youth Orchestra which Stokowski will take to South America
this summer. We can all think of numerous others: professional men, busif
nessmen, artists, craftsmen, leaders in civic affairs in education in labor.
On this our 25th anniversary we look with pride on such a versatile
and serviceable body of graduates and we know that you, the Class of June,
1940, will carry on in the tradition they have established.

ITH the graduating class of June 1940, there are three members of the faculty
who will terminate their years of service by retirement. To them, we say
farewell, and extend our most sincere wishes that they may have the opporf
tunity to do the things which seemed possible only in dreams. May good health and
happiness attend them.
In interviews, we learned what we always suspected-that they had a past, that
they all were "regular fellows" in the best sense of that term, and that they, too, en'
joyed the pranks of their high school days, the same as we do today.
These are their stories:
In the fortyfeight years in which he has taught,
Mr. Fox has regarded teaching, not only as a prof
fession and means of livelihood, but as the thing he
held closest to him.
As a boy, he attended John Arms' Academy which
he entered directly from grade school. He had to walk
three miles along the tow path of a canal, and in order
to utilize this time, he recited his lessons aloud.
The advice of a teacher, whom he met while workf
ing on a farm, impressed him so much that he attrif
butes this to the choosing of his life's work.
After leaving John Arms' Academy, he taught for
a short time, and then entered Millersville State
Teachers' College. Again he resumed his teaching.
During this time, he finished an A.B. course at Ursinus College, and took advanced work
at Temple and the University of Pennsylvania. He first taught at East Coventry, and
from there he went to Abington and then to Morrlyn County where he was supervisor'
principal. His next assignments were principal of Norristown Grammar School, and then
teacher of history at Norristown High School. In 1920, Mr. Fox came to Germantown
as a teacher of history.
All through his life he has had little time to devote to hobbies. He enjoyed hiking
and bicycling and became very much interested in the debating which he did in literary
societies. Here at Germantown, he conducted the Archery Club which was very popular.
Mr. Fox looks back over his teaching days with great pleasure and satisfaction.

Miss Cole received her high school education in a Friends' School. She received
very good marks and got a fine background for her further education.
In this school which was run on rather strict principles, pranks were not too fref

Miss Cole, in her school days, was a great laugher. l
She was easily amused by little things, and really
suffered from her unconquerable giggle.
Clothes were Miss Colels biggest worry. She
doesn't remember much about the styles, but does
recall that owning a large variety of skirts and blouses
was the making of a wellfdressed girl.
Miss Cole believes that her school days were not
her happiest ones, but she admits that they were
bright days, for she attended schools where she
knew many other pupils, and enjoyed participating
in school activities. She took her underfgraduate
work at Goucher College. She attended Sarbonne,
Paris, Bryn Mawr, and University of Chicago for her

Dr. Haussmann says, as he anticipates graduation,
that he would like to say goodbye to his friends at
Germantown, and then quietly disappear. He has
graduated several times before: first from a small
Lutheran parochial school in Michigan, next from his
father's tutoring, and then from the University of
Since 1909 Dr. Haussmann has taught German and
Latin in the Philadelphia high schools. He started
in Central, where, in addition to his teaching, he
ccnducted the orchestra after school for several years.
In 1916, he was persuaded to come to Germantown
and take over the supervision of the orchestra, which
before that time, was conducted by Mr. Fox. At
that time the members of the orchestra were handicapped by having to purchase all
their own music, and other equipment, but the orchestra became increasingly better,
until finally, music was made a regular curricular subject.
After his last "graduation" June 1940, Dr. Haussmann hopes to have more time
to spend on his hobbies, which are stamp collecting, chess, local historical records, gen'
eology, and music.
Although Dr. Haussmann does not take much interest in thrills, he admits that
when in school, he, too, took part in schoolboy pranks.
From his boyhood days, Dr. Haussmann's ambition was to be a teacher. If fulf
filling one's ambition marks a successful life, Dr. Haussmann has abundantly succeeded.

1 JOHN G. BEGHTEL
The unexpected death of John C.
Bechtel came as a distinct shock to the
members of the Germantown High
School Faculty. Unaware of his illness
and seeing him in his accustomed place
on Tuesday, March twelfth, we found
it diiiicult to believe that his life had
terminated on the following morning,
After a number of years at the Gen'
tral High School, Mr. Bechtel became
a member of our faculty in the year
1916 as a teacher of Mathematics. In
this position he remained until 1927,
when he became Head of the Depart'
ment of Mathematics in the South
Philadelphia High School for Boys.
Upon the retirement of 4Mr. Harry
Graham in 1935, Mr. Bechtel returned
to the Germantown High School as
Head of the Department of Mathematics, in which position he continued until his
Mr. Bechtel occupied a place of distinction in the Germantown High School. He
was a teacher in the best sense of the word, devoted to his profession and the various
problems involved in it, and genuinely interested in the students that attended his
classes and whom he came to know through other means. He was tireless in the per'
formance of his duties and in the service that he rendered outside the classroom to inf
dividual students and to the life of the school.
He gave much of his time to promoting school athletics, acting as treasurer of the
athletic association and as coach of the golf team. He believed in maintaining high ethical
standards in all athletic contests, and did much to develop a fine spirit of sportsmanship
among the members of our athletic teams. -
In his work as department head, as teacher, as colleague, as encourager of the right
kind of student activities, and in all phases of his life at the Germantown High School,
he endeared himself to faculty and students alike.
We shall greatly miss Mr. Bechtel because of the large place he occupied in the life
of our school, because of his vigorous personality, and because he possessed those qualf
ities that made him more respected and admired the better he was known.

WALTER K. VAN HAAGEN, PH.D.
N MAY 9, 1940, Dr. Walter K. Van Haagen of our faculty died after an illness
of several weeks, and with his passing the Germantown High School has suffered
the loss of one of its most profound scholars. Dr. Van Haagen's modest and
retiring disposition was so pronounced that probably only those who knew him inf
timately are in a position to appreciate the many facets of his personality. He not only
was eminently well prepared in his major subject, Chemistry, but he had read widely
in the humanities and in other branches of science. Coupled with his erudition were a
keen sense of humor, a charitable spirit for the difficulties of both his pupils and his col'
leagues, a generosity of heart, and an innate kindliness of purpose.
In the earlier years of his teaching career he was an instructor at the University
of Pennsylvania, Lehigh University, and the Georgia School of Technology. He came to
this school in 1919 as a substitute teacher at a time when there were no eligible appointees
in Chemistry, and later he qualified by examination for the position which he was des'
tined to hold until his death.
In some respects it is regrettable that circumstances did not permit Dr. Van Haagen
to continue research work in his chosen field of inorganic Chemistry. However, if we
are to believe with Emerson that there are always compensations, had he done so his
teaching during the past two decades might have been less effective. His research work
. before coming to Germantown was of a very high order.
' J Of his thesis for the doctorate, concerning a study of the
A -p compounds of tantalum, the late Edgar Fahs Smith stated
A I ' f ' A in one of his graduate lectures that it was an achievement
I " . comparable to the work of Faraday. Another notable
I . I piece of work to which Dr. Van Haagen gave full time for
I more than two years was a refdetermination of the atomic
.l weights of boron and fluorine. This paper was executed
ylw under the auspices of the Carnegie Institution of Wash'

In November 1938, there was a collision between

WHERE THE RAINBOW NEVER FADES
It cannot be that the earth is man's only abiding place. It cannot be that our life
is a mere bubble cast up by eternity to float a moment on its waves and then sink into
nothingness. Else why is it that the glorious aspirations which leap like angels from
the temple of our heart are forever wandering unsatisfied? Why is it that all the stars
that hold their festival around the midnight throne are set above the grasp of our limited
faculties, forever mocking us with their unapproachable glory? And, finally, why is it
that bright forms of human beauty presented to our View are taken from us, leaving the
thousand streams of our affections to flow back in Alpine torrents upon our hearts?
There is a realm where the rainbow never fades, where the stars will be spread out
before us like islands that slumber in the ocean, and where the beautiful beings which
now pass before us like shadows will stay in our presence forever.

NCTATICNS BY THE EDITCR
ITH the completion of this term, Germantown High
School marks the end of twentyffive years of service
to the community. It was with this in mind that we
chose Trees for the symbol of our CLASS RECORD.
We were most fortunate in being able to obtain the intaglio
engravings by the well known artist, Rose Metzorg Kerr, which
we have used as dividers. Our cover, too, bears the form of an
oak, the standard of power and might.
We tried to show outdoor life in the individual pictures,
and in the informal groups photographed on the school lawn.
The arrangement of our book this term is different from that
of most class books. We have tried to maintain interest by ex'
tending the personal pictures to the end of the book on the
lefthand pages, keeping the rightfhand pages for pictures of
class, school, club, and athletic activities.
We, of the RECORD Booic Staff hope that the CLASS RECORD
will serve as a book of memories of people, events, and activities
in Germantown High School.

ORN in Mecosta, Michigan, a little town settled as a lumbering center, Rose
Netzorg Kerr recalls many memories begun in the last decade of the last century.
She remembers herself as a plump little girl who liked to think things out for
herself, and act accordingly. In her father's store, a dry goods and clothing enterprise
which bartered calico for eggs, and knee pants for potatoes, her first interests in colors
and costumes began to grow under the encouragement of her parents, through making
Her school years began in Big Rapids, Michigan, where a kindly and understanding
kindergarten teacher used clay and weaving mats, and sewing cards with colored yarns.
The family moved to Battle Creek, Michigan, where the public schools provided able
and sincere instruction in the essentials of the day with drawing added as a "special"
In high school, she was elected art editor of the Paean, the high school annual.
The principal, T. Paul Hickey, now Director of the Detroit Institute of Technology,
encouraged her use of pen drawing, and drew her attention to the work of Howard
Pyle, the American artist. Harry Gage, a young painter, was then making murals in
the high school, and through him, she gleaned the essentials of making clean black and
On graduating from the high school at Battle Creek she attended Western State
Teachers College at Kalamazoo, Michigan, enrolling in the music and art course. After
two years of teaching these subjects in the public schools of Grand Haven, Michigan,
she was asked to return to Western State Teachers College as a faculty member, later
becoming the chairman of the Fine Arts Department succeeding Emilia Goldsworthy
Clark, her former teacher.
During vacations and sabbatical periods, she studied intensely at the Art Institute
at Chicago, Illinois, under the direction of Elmer Forsberg, now Finnish Consul in Chi'
cago, from whom she received 'fine training in drawing, painting, and composition.
Later, in New York City, she became a pupil of Howard Giles, A. N. A., who was
teaching life drawing and Dynamic Symmetry at the New York School of Fine and
Applied Art. It was while there that she met James Wilfrid Kerr, then an art student,
and now a painter, etcher, and publisher. They were married in 1922, Mrs. Kerr resign'
ing her position at the Teachers College, and beginning her professional work with
her husband in New York City.
The Kerrs now have a studio home in Waldwick, New jersey, where they work
together in the arts, chiefly for graphic arts reproduction. Mrs..Kerr prefers costume
drawing to all other, for it gives her an opportunity to express the drama in the human
figure. Tree drawing has always been an intense interest, and she finds in trees the
expressions of personal differences just as though they were people.
Her hobbies are music, cookery, needle crafts, and people. Children of any age,
create for her a world infinitely worth while and close to the creative work she loves
so well. How people behave under any and all circumstances provide more dramatic
interest to her than does the stage, the radio or the movies.
UNE, 1940, marks the end of twelve years of assof
ciations and friendships formed in the course of our
public school education and culminating in our graduaf
tion from Germantown School. These associations and
friendships have influenced our lives, and their memories
will be cherished in years to come. As we pursue our
individual ways in college or in business, our paths will
be divergent and it may be we will see one another only
on stated occasions or at reunions. It is my wish that
success may attend you, and give you the happiness
that may be your portion.
You have honored me by electing me your president
during the past four terms, and you have loyally sup'

supervision and friendship of the teachers, we, the stu'
dents, have progressed up life's ladder. We have gained
much in character and knowledge for which we sincerely
thank the faculty. We hope we have not been too diihf
cult and have given our teachers some real joy in our
stay in Germantown. It is with regret that we leave our
good old school, but "Time Marches Cn."
To my fellow classmates I say, "Thank You" for the
excellent cooperation and splendid class spirit shown
throughout our stay at school. The Glass of june, '40
has had outstanding supporting oilicers, and, as presif
dent, I wish to acknowledge their help and assistance.
For the class members my wish is that they may have
life at its best-good health, good friends, and good

HIS term the allfimportant matter of organizing the Commencement Exercises
was, as usual, entrusted to the care of a committee. Ruth Ayres was the chairf
man of this committee. The june '40 Class was unique in that a double graduaf
tion was bestowed upon it. On june nineteenth the regular Commencement was held at
school, and the next evening another took place at Temple Stadium. This latter was
a most unusual and successful graduation of all the city high schools. Another unique
feature of this enterprising class's school ceremony was that the girls and boys, although
gowned, wore no caps. The customary manner of giving out the diplomas and awards
was maintained, and the entire class sang a composition by one of its members. The
whole affair was a wellforganized and beautiful graduation.
The Senior Luncheon was held at the Cedarbrook Country Club on the nineteenth
ofjune. All the class was in high spirits for the memorable occasion, and it was enjoyed
to the uttermost, amid the usual uproar and excitement. The event was climaxed by
dancing to recordings and with entertainment by some of the class members. The whole
Luncheon was enjoyed heartily, and we all wish to thank Mary Jane Lytle and her
conscientious committee for their excellent work.
The character of Henry Aldrich, typical adolescent youth, has become almost
immortalg our School Play, "What a Life," has helped to make it so. On the evenings
of May fifth and sixth this play was presented by members of the Dramatic Club and
the Senior Class. The leading role of Henry was played on Friday night by Art Pen'
man, and on Saturday by Harry Merscher. Both were more than excellent in the part.
The supporting casts were large and wellftrained, and each member contributed his
part with much display of talent. When the final curtains closed, we all felt that our
school had presented not only a hilarious play, but one that was sympathetic with the
trials of being "high school age." This was the first term that the play was given under
the auspices of the whole school, rather than just by the 12B Class.
Each term the coveted "G" Pin Award is given to a worthy group of students.
Three members from the "CH Class, live from the "B" Class, and ten from the "A"
Class is the maximum number who may receive the pin. Ordinarily a person may be
elected to the honor more than once, but in the past term it was found necessary to
limit this. So many persons of the graduating class were clearly deserving, that it was
decided not to give the award to anyone for a second time, in order that a totally new
and valuable group might receive it. Nothing could be more representative of the high
standards that the Class of June, 1940, has upheld throughout its school career, than
is this fact.

THE SENIOR, PRCM
HE biggest social event of our high school career occurred on the twentyffourth
of May. After much deliberation on the part of the committee, Cedarbrook
Country Club, the scene of many proms, was chosen. The dance music for the
evening was furnished by Tom Darlington and his Royal Sylvanians. Twelve musicians
and a vocalist made up the band, and provided the syncopated rhythm in the approved
Early in the evening the grounds were dotted with gay couples slowly making their
way towards the dance floor which was gaily decorated to suit the occasion. The cus'
tomary green and white predominated.
Cne of the interesting features was the unique motherfoffpearl star with the school
seal, which was chosen as the favor for the girls. The orchestra also presented many
novelty numbers that added an additional thrill to the evening.
All in all, the prom of the June Class of 1940 was a great success, and everyone
had a most delightful time. Our thanks to the Prom Committee under the able leadership
of john Carson for the splendid prom they gave us.
lncidentally, the june 1940 Class was the first class to give a Junior Prom. This
event, also, took place at Cedarbrook Country Club on june 4, 1939. The orchestra was
the Kenmore Karavan which everyone enjoyed dancing to. This class opened the way
for later Junior classes and now it is a regular event each year given by the eleventh

BETWEEN THE LINES
It's been rather lonesome since you left dear
old Philadelphia, but with entering high school
and everything, I don't give myself much time to
Germantown is so big, and being a freshman
doesn't help. Most of the class is new to me, com'
ing from another part of the city as I have, but
there're very willing to be friends so don't trust
your old pal too muchg she may betray you for one
of her newer acquaintances. Love, JANE.
February 8, 1939
So much has happened since I wrote you in thirty'
seven. Now my class has organized in preparation for
graduation. We have already elected Miss Young,
my English teacher, and Mr. Rudrauff, one of the
art teachers, the class advisers.
Last week we had election of officers and Jane
Barber and John Carson walked off with the presif
dencies. Barbara Buckley and Bill Krebs were
elected secretaries, and Jack Gravenstine and Bar'
bara Welsh, treasurers. They are all swell peopleg
too bad you can't live here and know them.
I'm so thrilledg Daddy said I could buy my class
ring now from the committee in school that has
charge of orders. Mary Jane Lytle is chairman.
Remember my introducing her to you last August
when you were here?
Better sign off before I wear down this lead so
I won't be able to do my algebra tomorrow.
'Bye now, JANE.
March 30, 1939
I always said my class was best and it's always
doing something to prove it. At the last class
meeting, our mascot, an eagle, was unveiled and,
Ruth, he's adorable. He was duly and dutifully
christened Egbert, "Eggie" for short. The motif
was taken from the frieze above the main entrance
and designed by Moni Engle.
But the best part of all is this. Dorothy Berry
and George Buckley, assisted by a committee, are
selling Eggie pins. They are to be about an inch
high and cut out in the shape of Egbert. Clever,
don't you think? Love from Eggie, too, JANE.
April zo, 1939
Everyone here is so excited. Our class is giving
a Junior Prom, the tirst one ever given in German-
town. June Stallings is business manager so it's
sure to be a success. We don't know yet whether
or not it will be formal but chances are that dress
will be optional.
Something else but not so important. Ruth, I
think the Class of June '40 has really landed.
In the Clipper, that came out Tuesday, Eugene
Witt and Fred Bremier made the gallery of pic'
tures. First time anyone from our class has done
One more important thing, the "G" pin awards
were made this weekg Jane Barber, John Carson,
and Moni Engle were the ones from 11B honored.
They all deserve congratulations.
Before I get too congratulatory, I had better
stop until next time. As ever, JANE.
April 29, 1939
Thursday was the girls' annual gym meet. It
was one grand time, full of spirit and good sports'
manship. As usual our team ran off with the prize.
Jean Anderson won the individual silver metal
for second place and Eleanor Jones received the
bronze medal for third place.
I'll write soon again and say more, but for now,
June 20, 1939
The last weeks have been so full of exams I
haven't had much time to write. Only thing of
importance was the election of four members of
our class to the Committee of Teng Fred Bremier,
George Haviland, Gloria Veit, and Bill Krebs, if
The term is nearly over and when we come back
we will all be Seniors, so until July,
P. S.: I don't see how I could have forgotten
but the Junior Prom was June second at Cedar Brook.
I had the most wonderful time! It was just as
huge a success as I predicted.

The term has started with a loud bang. Per
usual, ofhcers were elected and per usual, Jane
Barber and John Carson were elected presidents.
Vicefpresidents are Bob Ogle and Mary Jane
Lytle, and secretaries, Wiliard Krebs and Kay
McSparron. It was decided that it would be
more convenient if the same treasurers were kept
until graduation. Love as usual, JANE.
January 6, 1940
. This is station GTN broadcasting to say Happy
New Year, even though it is six days late. Promptly
as ever Class B has already done something this
year. On the fourth we entertained the Great William,
a master magician, if there was one. Rather I
should say he entertained us. He did everythingg
changed Water to wine, rags to silk, produced
girls from empty trunks, and made pigeons and
rabbits disappear. In fact, he made everything
disappear but the audience.
Good as the show was, the turnout was not quite
as good as expected, but then everything can't be
done perfectly all the time. This was presented
in place of the usual class party and may set
another precedent in Germantown.
As always, JANE.
February 8, 1940
Now that we're seniors, things are popping.
So much has to be done before graduation. The
RECORD Booic Staff has been organized for quite
some time and the people for various committees
are being considered.
Officers were elected and the presidential oflices
went to Jane Barber and Francis Courtney, Pete
That's all until we really get started.
February 16, 1940
Small note to let you know we were notilied
of our 12A averages recently. The highest boy
and girl each were awarded a livefdollar prize by
the Boosters. Jane Leflar and Randle Kauders
were the ones chosen this term.
More seriously than usual, JANE.
March 18, 1940
The biggest thing around school recently has
been the school play, "What a Life." A double
cast has been chosen with Harry Merscher and
Art Penman as Henry Aldrich, and Ruth Dubbs
and Muriel Grubmeyer as Barbara.
Ch! yes, the committees have been appointed
to conduct the prom, graduation, school play, and
luncheon. Chairmen are John Carson, Ruth
Ayres, Jane Barber, and Mary Jane Lytle.
I've been thinking, did I forget to tell you that
George Haviland has been elected president of the
Senate and Gloria Veit, vicefpresident? If so, please
notify me and I'll verify it. Love, JANE.
April 26, 1940
Today was a big day. In assembly this morning,
ten of our class received the coveted "G" Pin
Award. For the first time, everyone agreed that
the choices were excellent.
The other thing was the girls' gym meet. First
and third prizes came to us, Alberta Twining,
winning the silver cup, and Jeanne Anderson, the
bronze medal. Our team earned the most points,
and took the first prize for the third term. I never
saw seniors get so excited before, but the feeling
is grand. Full of school spirit, JANE.
May 26, 1940
I can hardly keep my eyes open even though the
Prom was two days ago. Everyone had a perfect
time. The girls looked beautiful, the music was
good, the place ample, in fact, the most I can say
is, "lt was perfect." Dreamily happy, JANE.
June 24, 1940
It's all over. Our luncheon and graduation were
held last week. Both ran smoothly with no mishap
to speak of. It's a little sad to be saying goodfbye
after twelve years of school, but then the friends
worth having will still be around, and our memories
should be bright and full.
Although this phase of events in high school
is over, there are still college and business worlds
to conquer, and then watch our progress!
With love as ever, now graduated,

T THE head of all school government presides the Senate. At its meetings the
senators, or alternates, of every grade in the school gather for the purpose of
lawfmaking. They also discuss the problems that arise in every aspect of
school life. Mr. Strauss, who is in charge of the group, guides the Committee of Ten
in its efforts to enforce the laws of the Senate. Each student is asked to cooperate with
the Committee to make our school a wellfordered place. The Committee members,
elected each term, are Hve boys and five girls chosen by the Senate from arepresentntive
list of A, B, and C Classmen.
The school's Boosters are under the care of Mr. Rothermel. To these five boys and
five girls is given the job of raising money for the students' assistance fund, the Christmas
baskets, and the bus fund. Their most intensive activity is during Booster Week of
each term. This week's work is climaxed by the everfpopular Booster dance. Boosters
may always be relied on to do a splendid piece of work.
Germantown's school magazine, the Cliveden, is one of which we are all justly proud.
Under the sponsorship of Mrs. Sutch, the Cliveden was awarded second place at the
Columbia Press Conference this year. All the student body is urged to contribute origf
inal stories, poems, and articles to the magazine. Beside these, there are many more
features of a high literary standard. It is little wonder that the Cliveden has nearly
reached the peak of journalistic perfection.
The Clipper, our wellfknown paper, has appeal for every student. Contributions
for the Clipper are always welcome. Mrs. Goodman and Mr. Laderman, of the Literary
and Business staffs, have successfully completed another term of publications. In the
Columbia Press Conference the Clipper has won many prizes. It is, in addition, a mem'
ber of the Pennsylvania and Philadelphia High School Press Associations.
Once each term the Dramatic Club sponsors the Shakespeare Contest. Students
from 11B, 12A, and 12B are eligible, and they may present either a monologue or a dia'
logue from any of Shakespeare's plays. The Dramatic Club is in charge of all arrange'
ments for the contest, and Miss Prince and Dr. Mason coach the participants. A live'
dollar prize is given to the winner, and there are also second and third prizes.
The A Cappella Choir of Germantown High School is famous throughout the
city. Miss Evans has established a high standard for the choir, and its performances
are none but the best. A drive to raise money for the choir has been started that they
may purchase uniform gowns. This term the A Cappella singers played an im'
portant part in the musical evening given by the school. In this evening it was aided
by the school orchestra. Mrs. Golden, who is the competent leader of this group is also
in charge of the band. Orchestra participation is not only valuable as an actual school
subject, but is a constant source of joy for the musicallyfminded students. German'
town High School would not be the same without its orchestra.

LUB life plays an important part at Germantown High School. Although it is
not compulsory, every student is urged to join some club, or at least one after'
school activity for his own particular benefit. The types of clubs are enough
diversified that everyone may find a group in which he is particularly interested. Largest
and most popular of all are the Debating and Dramatic Clubs, but the others are just
as interesting and helpful in their own way. In these days of turmoil what could be
more instructive than attendance at the Current Events Club? Here matters of vital
interest to us are fully discussed. For the mathematicallyfminded, there are many inf
structive hours to be spent in the Slide Rule Club. Sponsored by Dr. Rodman, member'
ship is limited to about twenty members so that all may receive her personal attention.
Knowledge of the use of a slide rule is useful in engineering, architecture, physics, and
The language clubs are Le Cercle Francais, and Res Latinae. A student of either
French or Latin will find these clubs highly enjoyable. Games are played, songs are
sung in the respective languages-a pleasant way to learn new vocabulary. Once a term
each club holds a party, and both give awards at graduation.
The HifY's are important organizations in our school. The Germantown HifY,
the Chi Rho HifY for boys, the Girls' HifY, and Junior HifY are all fine groups, and
are equally popular. The Chi Rho and Germantown HifY's each meet once a term for
a dinner with the Girls' HifY, while the junior HifY is a more'orfless separate unit. The
boys enjoy many sports ,activities through the yearg the girls take part in helping the
Germantown Hospital Store and the Settlement House. Membership in all these clubs
is by "tryout" only, but, once in, no member would ever give it up.
Commercial students will find a ready welcome in the Commercial Club. This
Club's activities are very interesting, as they include visits to banks, a newspaper build'
ing, and an ice cream factory. Business men often visit the club. The club awards
a prize at graduation to the commercial student with the highest average.
"A pleasant way to go to the hospital-join the Hospital Auxiliary" is a slogan
familiar to us all. Active Auxiliary members get a real thrill from their work. The club's
biggest project is visiting children in hospital wards, and entertaining them through the
Newest among the organizations of the school is the Boys' Glee Club. Already their
line work has been recognized through assembly programs, and by their beautiful singing
at the first musical evening given by the school. Many members must leave at the term's
end, but if the remainder continues, great things may be expected from the group in

THE DEBATING CLUB
F ALL the numerous clubs in Germantown, the Debating Club is the one that
is probably the most popular with the students. Not only is it the largest,
but the most interesting and educational. Its purpose is to develop and en'
courage public speaking, and to acquaint the members with the art of debating. For
many years its enthusiastic participants have flocked to Room 233 where Miss Ege
and Mr. Arnold have lead them to success.
Through the Debating Club, many Germantown students have kept informed of
the current topics, both foreign and domestic, which today afford much discussion.
They have also had an opportunity to hear the opinions of others and to express their
own. At several instances members of our Debating Club have been invited to enterf
tain at different social affairs, and received many compliments for their fine work. This
term we had the pleasure and privilege of hearing a debate given by the Freshman Def
hating Team from Ursinus College. This was of interest to all, and was greatly appref
The club meets every second and fourth Thursday of the month. At the end of
each term, serious thoughts are laid aside, and the members enjoy a most delightful party,
including refreshments and entertainment by the talented.
This term's oflicers were: William Phillips, president, Jane Althofer, vicefpresidentg
Dauphin Free, secretary, and jane Barber, treasurer.

THE DRAMATIC CLUB
NE of the oldest and most popular clubs in the school
is the Dramatic Club. At the two monthly meetings
talks, quizzes, and short plays are presented which
vary from an adaptation from the Greek dramatist, Aristophenus,
to a modern farce by Stephen Leacock. Once every other year
a threefact play is given after school. The club sponsors, Dr.
Mason and Miss Prince, are two very fine coaches whose delight'
ful personalities have inspired the club's activities for several
years. Beside the regular meetings, the other activities of the
club include: plays in the assembly, performances for local
clubs, frequent radio broadcasts, and a semifannual party. The
arrangements for the Shakespeare contest are also in the hands
of the club, which provides the refreshments and the second
and third prizes. The officers who with the chairmen and their
committees have led the club in the past year are: president,
William Philipsg secretary, Dorothy Morin, and treasurer, Jane

LTHOUGH Germantown High has won no championships in recent years,
a high level of athletic achievement has been maintained. Concrete proof
that this is done is offered by the fact that the school won the sportsmanf
ship trophy for the fifth time last fall.
The crossfcountry team was beaten only by Northeast, and Senior Dick Cooper
finished third in the championships. It seems very unfortunate that this squad which
proved itself to be one of the best teams in the school was so poorly supported by the
student body, and received so little of the credit that was due it. Washington, Garvin,
Brear, and Johansen also will graduate this year.
Our soccer squad was undefeated, finishing with a record of four wins and three
ties. The team was not entered in the Public High League, but competed successfully
against League members. Graduating in June are Comerford, Sweeten, Tucker, and
The basketball team did well considering some wholesale revisions necessitated
by midyear graduations. It was a low scoring outfit that seemed to function best in
close games. Missing next year will be Comerford, Fleming, Grant, Hill, and Gravenstine.
With expert coaching by Dr. Zwarg, an inexperienced Cliveden gym team made
an excellent showing. Leading scorers were Collin, Herold, Greene, and McKinney.
Greene set a suburban record for the rope climb in the meet with Jenkintown.
While our fencing team fared badly, the individual brilliance of Bill Govette is
worthy of comment. He was undefeated during the regular season, and won the Public
High League Championship.
VVhile it has become somewhat the custom to ridicule members of the table tennis
squad, it takes a high degree of skill and dexterity to play the game well. The team had
a good season against stern competition. Bob Miller, Frank Towey, and Bob Van O'Linda
Our swimming squad was defeated only once during the season, and the free style
relay team of Paul Calhoun, Bob Walker, Dick Butler, and Bill Champion was the best
in Philadelphia. Though theirs was our only victory, seconds and thirds were plentiful
enough to land the Clivedens in second place. Although cofcaptain John Carson and
Gil Gaylor will graduate, the outlook is bright for next year.
The spring sport schedule is not completed as this is written, but our track team
is enjoying its best year since 1935. An improvement in field events is a contributing
factor. The Ogden plan, featuring relays, has proved popular. This innovation works
to the Cliveden's advantage because we have a wellfbalanced squad with few stars.
As this is written, the team has topped all opponents but Cverbrook, the defending
The team will be heavily hit by graduation, losing Cooper, Washington, Lamb,
Johansen, Gasperson, Sweeten, Brear, Courtney, Clifton, Winston, Tucker, Vogel,
Our golfers have done well, beating all opponents except Roxborough. Seniors are
Art Penman, George Buckley, Randle Kauders, and Jack Loughridge.

There are many
that a given group
of people can pos'
sincerity, and others
of equal imporf
tance. Not the least 'p
of these line qualif
ties is good sports'
manship. Its im'
portance in the
scheme of educaf
tion is recognized
by an annual trophy award to the Philadelphia
High School exhibiting the highest type of sports'
manship. This year the trophy comes to German'
town. The xifth time that we have beensohonored.
The athletic program in our public school sys'
tem is not primarily regarded as recreational. Far
more important is character building-teaching us
to play the game, but play it fair, to excel if posf
sible, to show consideration for our opponents.
This is the essence of good sportsmanship, We
see it not only on the playing field, but in the
cheering section as well. In the supreme eifort of
trying to surpass opponents, it is easy indeed to
be swept away by
enthusiasm and a
desire to win, and
therefore to slip un'
habits that might
be called unsportsf
manlike. lt is com'
' mendable that, in
the estimate of
team captains of
f other schools, Ger-
mantown High has
succeeded best in
refraining from slip'
ping into such practices. Only by the cooperation
of the entire student body has this been possible.
However, there are still considerable grounds
for improvement as evidenced, for example, by
poor spectator conduct at some basketball games
during the past season. By everybody's whole'
hearted support we can iron out those details and
perhaps even make our school the perpetual home
of the trophy. It's worth trying.
After all, wouldn't the world become amore
pleasant place to live in if everybody would pracf
tice a little more sportsmanship?

HE baseball squad has had a fairly successful season. Pitching has been plentiful,
and usually of a high standard. Hoch, Richter, Miley, and Allen have had the
majority of assignments, and usually were more efhcient than their support.
Inability to hit with men on base has killed the Cliveden's chances in several hardffought
Mainstay of the team has been firstfbaseman Charley Comerford, whose timely
hits have won more than one game during the season, and whose Eelding has been of
equal caliber. '
The season opened with Germantown Academy, and a sloppy game resulted. A
different Cliveden pitcher was used each inning, with no regard for efhcient perform'
ance, and we were lucky to gain an 1141 tie.
The hrst two league games were with Northeast and Olney. Germantown had
fine pitching from Hoch and Richter but the opposing hurlers were even better and we
lost by scores of 2f0 and 5fO, respectively. The Olney team produced many fielding
gems, including a timely double play that snuifed out a Cliveden rally.
The team functioned better after these two defeats, winning from the league leadf
ing Southern squad, Gratz, and Central in rapid succession. Ben Franklin broke our winf
ning streak, but we came right back to snow under Roxborough by a score of l3f4,
putting the game on ice in the first inning when ten runs crossed the plate.
On the whole, the season could be regarded as fairly successful.

LTHOUGH the football team had only a moderately successful season, a rapid
A improvement of the squad toward the end of the season dispelled some of
the gloom of a disappointing year. The Hrst game with LaSalle was closer
than the score indicated. The final was 12f0 favor LaSalle, but field play seemed
The next two games ended in ties with Olney and Overbrook. The Olney game was
a heartbreaker since the team was leading 7fO in the last quarter. The timefhonored
sleeper play proved successful once more, as a previously unseen Olney end took a flat
pass from halfback and raced to within a foot of the goal line. A score was inevitable,
and so the twentieth occasion for Gerrnantown's Brst victory was delayed until later.
A tie was managed with a big and fast Overbrook squad when Bert Miley, later to be
judged AllfPublic High end, took a pass to score in the third quarter.
Then followed successive defeats to Gratz and Northeast, which brings us to the
highlight of the season-the Frankford game. With the school, an underclay against
our traditional rival an upset seemed opportune, but fate willed it otherwise. Heading
140 at halfftime, the Clivedens could not hold the lead against the powerful Frankford
squad, the final score was 2749.
Then the improved squad broke loose to completely outfclass a heavy Central team
by a score of 13fO. The brilliance of Charley Waters and Barty Allen was largely ref
sponsible for the victory. The final game was lost to the powerful Norristown squad,
6fO. The game was played in a literal swamp, and was largely a punting duel.

ACH and every term finds more and more girls of Germantown High School be'
coming interested and indulging in interclass athletic activities. A great deal
of the credit for the improved varied sports is due to the Girls' Athletic Associaf
tion Executive Board, under the leadership of Miss Steger, and to the gym sponsors.
The Board is governed by the president, and assisted by the vicefpresident. The
treasurer handles all receipts and payments of money, and the secretary keeps accurate
minutes of all business meetings. Each grade has a representative who relates new ideas
received from her class for the improvement of the sports program.
Mrs. Duffy and Miss Wert are responsible for aiding the leaders to perfect the many
aims of the various pieces of apparatus. These trained girls are placed at the head of
squads in the regular gym classes to instruct the others. The leaders not only learn their
aims but have a great deal of pleasure in so doing.
The success of the Dancing Club is due to Miss Freehafer's helpful and instructive
guidance in Modern, Ballet, Character, and Tap. Those who have seen them perform
at Christmas Pageants, Graphic Sketch Club, Senior Plays, and the Gym Meets, appref
ciate their skill.
This year, as usual, another highly successful Gym Meet was held. Again our team
came through with flying colors. Alberta Twining, one of our most enthusiastic athf
letes, won the cup for attaining the highest number of points for apparatus and rhythmic
work. Jeanne Anderson was another high scorer in the meet, and was presented with
a bronze medal for her achievement. Other Seniors who were members of the winning
squad are Moni Engle, Claire McCoy, Jane Brockmier, Millicent Lush, JosephineVisco,
Madee Hansen, Roberta Morrison, and Helen Laird. This is the third consecutive year
our class has won top honors for their outstanding performance. We hold the record
for capturing the team title three times in a row, as this has not been attained by any
Horseback riding has become very popular during the last few terms. Under the
leadership of Miss Wert, some of the girls learn the principles of riding, while others
improve upon these fundamentals.
Every week several swimming classes are held at the Y. W. C. A. pool. Miss Snyf
der is credited with instructing beginners, and perfecting intermediates and advanced
swimmers. This club also has a group which devotes its time and energy to passing the
American Red Cross Junior and Senior Life Saving requirements.
In the Spring, the athletically inclined girls' fancy turns to baseball. Under the
direction of Miss Steger, the girls enjoy interclass competition. This game calls for
real teamwork which the girls must have in order to acquire winning results.
Gur girls have been very active in hockey, basketball, baseball, track and field work,
tumbling, and horseback riding. These sports are not only entered for competition, but
to each participant comes the greatest factor-good sportsmanship.

"The wife who drives from the back seat of a
car," declares a courageous exchange, "isn't a bit
worse than the husband who cooks from the dining'
room table."-Religious Telescope.
The butcher was surprised when a slim young
woman asked for twentyffive pounds of beef. All
the same, he cut off the joint and put it on the scales.
"Will you take it with you, or shall I send it to
your home?" he asked.
"Oh," she murmured, blushing prettily, "I don't
want to buy it. You see, the doctor said I had lost
twentyfhve pounds, and I wanted to see What it
looked like in a lump."-Lookout.
Whatever trouble Adam had,
No man in days of yore
Could say, when Adam cracked a joke,
"I've heard that one before."
THB RIGHT CROWD
Professor-"I am going to speak on liars today.
How many of you have read the twentyffifth chap'
ter of the text?"
Nearly every student raised his hand.
Professor-"Cood. You are the group to whom
I wish to speak. There is no twenty-fifth chapf
.Ioan-"Oh, what a time We had! I just donlt
know how I ever came-through! First, I got angina
pectoris, and then double pneumonia, followed by
arteriosclerosis and phthisis, after which they gave
me hypodermics. Then I had barely recovered
from these when I got tuberculosis, with appenf
dicitis, followed by tonsillotomy.
"Yes, indeed, it was the hardest spelling contest
I've ever had."-Exchange.
Bride-"Yes, I cookde my first meal last night-
it was a grand success."
Bride-"Yes, he's going to get me a cook right
HSOMEBODYIS ALWAYS," BTC.
A farmer visited his son's college. Watching
students in a chemistry class, he was told they were
looking for a universal solvent.
"What's that?" asked the farmer.
"A fluid that will dissolve anything."
"Thats a great idea," agreed the farmer. "When
you find it, what are you going to keep it in?"
"Yes," said the newspaper reporter, "I always
carry my notes in my hat."
"I see," said Fogg. "News in a nutshell."
Two Negro boys were having an argument. One
doubted the existence of ghosts, but the other
claimed to have seen one the night before. "Ho,"
said the doubter, "and what was dis here ghos'
doin' when you las' seen him
'iles' fallin' behin', mistahf' was the answer,
"fallin' behin' rapid!"-Exchange.
EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT
The boss was interviewing a man who was
applying for a position.
"Do you know anything at all about electrical
"Yes, sir," was the prompt reply.
"What is an armature?" asked the boss.
"Oh, that's a guy who sings for Major Bowes."
