1 5Publ'ished by T H E C L A S S of JUNE 1940 FORTYJEIGHTI-I CLASS, JUNE 1940 3 UNE NINETEEN FORT THE HUMBLER WAY Nora: This poem received the Aline Michaelis Award in com' 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. MARY C. ERDMAN. 4 UNE NINETEEN FORT DEDIC completes twentyffive 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 ATIUN 1 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. 5 UNE NINETEEN FORT YOUTH'S PRAYER 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." MARIAN Rose ENGLEMAN. 6 l UNE NINETEE O T FOREWGRD James M. Barrie has said that "We have memories that We may have roses in December." Our CLASS RECORD is the book of mem' ories of happy moments, days, and years spent in more or less intimate association in and out of school with our classmates. If it is true that friendships formed in high school are more lasting than any formed in later life, then the preservation of the incidents here recorded will be increasingly cherished with the years truly the roses of graduation time will bloom in the December of our lives This is our hope' JUNE .'.NINETEEN .-.FORT DR. LESLIE B. SEELY Pfinci pal 8 UNE NINETEEN FORT 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. ' la Principal. 9 UNE AS THE TWIG IS BENT SAMUEL N. BAXTER President-Germantown Horticultural Society Arboriculturist-Fairmount Park Commission 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. 10 NINETEEN FORT 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 up to. And remember, by your fruits shall you be known! 11 M' 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. VIRGINIA DEM. RAAcKE, Assistant to the Principal. 12 UNE NINETEEN FORT Q MISS MADGE M. YOUNG Class Adviser for the Girls MR. RGLAND L. RUDRAUFF Class Adviser foo' the Boys 13 JUNE NINETEEN FORTY TEACHERS EMERITUS 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. FF PIC Ulf Pk Pk 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 quently played. However, Miss Cole does admit taking part in several which went unf discovered and unpunished. 14 JUNE .-.NINETEFLN .-.FORTY 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 graduate work. Theiplans for Miss Cole's future life are not yet definite. At present, she expects to go to France or to Southern California. Pk ik Pl: Pk 3F 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 Pennsylvania. 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. 15 - JUNE NINETEEN .-.FORTY LIST OF FACULTY ART AND MECHANIC ARTS DEPARTMENT WILLIAM L.

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 death. ,. 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. 18 JUNE .-.NINETEEN .FORTY 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 il 1 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 . P- 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 . U4 ylw under the auspices of the Carnegie Institution of Wash' 911 ington and was published in 1918. lu , I Dr. Van Haagen's relations with his pupils were always 1 lg I M i1l cordial, and many of them can attest to his broad knowledge U I ll fl p I in many Helds. He possessed unusual skill and inventiveness If p', p 4' p. in laboratory technique, as well as mechanical ingenuity, ,Il . ffl iliiyl and as a consequence was instrumental in many cases in fili il ' ill fllll furnishing students with the impetus to follow chemical ii I 1 f 5 ,ll 4 careers upon leaving the school. He will be greatly missed I p 4 1 .lil by his fellow teachers and by all the pupils who have I lj ll I gl A 'gil known him.

As a result of his injuries, Dick Findeisen died a few days later, just as the football team, of which he was a member, was scheduled to play the annual Frankford game. Dick was with the team in spirit, for he sent the boys his best wishes, and asked them to win for his sake. When Dick's passing was flashed over the wire, and announced between halves, the tribute paid to his memory made a profound impression long to be remembered. . That Dick Findeisen was loved by his friends was evidenced by the establishment of a memorial in his honor by the Germantown HifY of which he was a member. In humbly trying to preserve his memory, Mr. and Mrs. Findeisen presented a cup in the Senior Athletic Assembly to the boy possessing qualities which in Dick were admired by his class mates-characteristics of a ine Christian spirit, generosity, and helpfulness to others. 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.

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. HARRIBT F. CORBETT, Editor. FRANK SWEBTBN HARRIET Coiuaizrr ANNETTB RIELING 23 UN THE SCHOOL LIBRARY THE CLASS RCSE NETZCRG KERR 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 doll clothes. 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" subject. 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 white drawings. 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. 25 UN E 1940 GREETINGS 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' ported me in the fulfillment of the duties of the oiiice. I am grateful, and thankful for your cooperation. As we separate, may I wish for each one of you that strength of character, and that sturdiness of purpose which will make you a worthy alumnus of our Alma Mater. Vale! Ever your friend, JANE BARBER. JANE BARBER, President ALBERTA TWINING, VicefP'rcsidem PHYLLIS MAIR, Secretary BARBARA WELSH, Treasurer 26 T GREETINGS OCKING back over the past three years spent in the Germantown High School, it seems impossible that we are about to be graduated. The time has passed rapidly, pleasantly, and profitably. Through the constant 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 luck. FRANCIS E. COURTNEY, JR., Boys' President, june, '4O.

Algebvaically speaking: 4A -I-ZQ-I-6F+2T 2 Dot THE CLASS CUR CLASSAY 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.

Goodman, Sypherd, Bains, ' Carson, Roper, Harnecl. 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 modern style. 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 grades. 33 UN E 1940 GEORGE E. BODENSTEIN 431 W. Bringhurst Street Mecnamcar.

' 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 Hello, Ruthie: 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 Hello Darling: 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 Hello Ruthie: 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 so. 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 Dear Ruth: 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, Love, JANE. June 20, 1939 Dear Ruthie: 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 you're interested. The term is nearly over and when we come back we will all be Seniors, so until July, Au Revoir, JANE. 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. JUN ROSE CATERFINO 88 E. Haines Street COMMERCIAL HOBBY: Dancing. Q Acrrvmizsz Commercialette Club D, Com' mercial Club B.

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 Hello there: . 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 Deaf Ruthie: 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 for short. That's all until we really get started. Love, JANE. February 16, 1940 Dear Ruth: 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. THE CL.ASS March 18, 1940 Dear Ruthie: 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 Hello Ruthie: 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 Deaf Ruthie: 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 Deaf Ru: 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, JANE. U NE.

Algebmically speaking: 2Q-I-SN-I-1A+2O : Matt THE SCHOOL OUR SCHOOL 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. 51 . E 1 0 I JUN 94 WILLIAM FLEMING, ja. 7444 Rugby Street MECHANICAL ARTS HOBBY! Fishing, Finding Something Easy to Do.

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 astronomy. 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 afternoon. . 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 future. 61 UN E 1940 MADEE HANSEN . 117 W.

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 ciated. 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. 65 UN E 1940 ELIZABETH HOWARD 45 W.

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.

Algebraically speaking: sR+1c+6F+7G :George ATHLETICS CUR SPORTS 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 Zinman. 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 were standouts. 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 champions. The team will be heavily hit by graduation, losing Cooper, Washington, Lamb, Johansen, Gasperson, Sweeten, Brear, Courtney, Clifton, Winston, Tucker, Vogel, and Herold. Our golfers have done well, beating all opponents except Roxborough. Seniors are Art Penman, George Buckley, Randle Kauders, and Jack Loughridge. 77 UN E 1940 LOUIS FRANK MARSILIO 530 E.

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' consciously into 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?

BASEBALL TEAM 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 games. 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. S3 JUN JOSEPH P. MULQUEENEY 6320 Chew Street INDUSTRIAL HOBBY: Swimming.

FOOTBALL TEAM 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 about even. 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. 85 U NE 1940 MARGARET MARY O'HAGAN 1966 Church Lane COMMERCIA L HOBBY: Gymnastics, Dancing.

Algebfaically speaking: 4A -l-SA +3D+3E+5P : Sherry ATHLETICS GIRLS' ATHLETICS 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 other team. 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. 95 JUN WILLIAM KETNER SHORTALL 1982 Dallas Street ACADEMIC Algebraically speaking: zQ+6P+1H+s1 2 Bill CONSTANCE ROSALIND SIANI 5009 Wayne Avenue ACADEMIC HOBBY: Dancing.
