SPRUNG FROM THE SOIL OF PENNSYLVANIA
E, the Class of June, 1941, dedicate
our CLASS RECORD to our native state,
Pennsylvania, and to the principles for
which William Penn, its founder, stood.
As we leave this school, we only hope that
we can live up to the standards which
have been set for us.
William Penn founded this, his state,
with the hope that honor, peace, freedom,
and good will would abide here forever,
and it is up to us to see that they do.
So it is to Pennsylvania and everything
it represents that We proudly dedicate our
last memory of Germantown High School.

ENNSYLVANIA is a theme indeed
suitable for the CLASS RECORD of the Senior
Class. It is a state of historical importance,
romantic interest, and timely influence.
The vast variety of its interests-political,
commercial, and agricultural, justifies a
feeling of pride from the Germantown stu-
dents, inhabitants of its largest and most
important city, and warrant a place of
honor for its colors, blue and gold.
lf we do not now realize it, we may in
the future, recognize the importance of our
state in governmental affairs. In this age,
each part of any democracy, no matter
how small or great the part, has of necessity
great weight and much responsibility on
Therefore, we, as the future citizens and
backbone of our state and country, must
strive to give our successors a heredity of
which to be proud, one as great as that
inherited by us.
O THE CLASS OF JUNE, 1941:
Most of our feelings of patriotism center about the nation, thc
United States of America. This is as it should be. But love of country
need in no wise suffer because of a love of our great commonwealth,
Certainly most of us should know our state-its history, its geography,
its resources and its industries, and its people better than we do. I
suggest to you, who are leaving school and entering broader fields of
usefulness and knowledge, that you come to know and enjoy its beauties
of mountain and lake and river, that you come to know its fertile valley
and comfortable homes, that you become acquainted with more of its
people, its resources and industries than you have been able to do thus
far. It is certain that you will love it better, and will appreciate it more
fully as the Keystone State of these United States.
DR. LESLIE . EELY
The Class of June, 1941, will long re-
memher Dr. Seely for his constant interest
in our welfare and well-being. To Dr. Seely
the class now bids farewell and extends
good wishes for the future.

N THE death of Corinne B. Hardcastle, the Germantown High School has suffered the loss
of one of its charter faculty members. She began her teaching career in the Girls' Annex on Ger-
mantown Avenue with Miss Mary S. Holmes, and was transferred to this school, upon its comple-
tion in 1915, as a member of the Art Department. During all of her years of service she has been
a conscientious and tireless worker, and gave of herself unselfishly in the interests of the school,
and in its service to the community.
Although born in Chicago, Illinois, she early in life attended the Philadelphia grade schools,
and then entered the School of Design for Women, now the Moore Institute of Art, Science and
lndustry, under Miss Emily Sartain. Her work as an art student was outstanding, and in her
senior year she was awarded a fellowship for an additional year of study at the school. Her ability
was recognized by the award of the P. A. B. Widener fellowship for a year of study abroad which
was spent in England. Upon her return, she worked in New York as a designer for about a year
before entering the Philadelphia School System as a teacher.
That Corinne Hardcastle was well fitted for her work is attested by the fact that she has made
a profound and lasting impression on the many girls and boys with whom she came in contact.
She brought to her work a seriousness of purpose and a thoroughness in detail and technique which
was a great incentive to her students.
She maintained her art interests by study in summer school classes, by professional member-
ships, and by exhibiting her work at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Art Alliance,
and the Chestnut Hill Art League.
Corinne Hardcastle will be greatly missed by her colleagues, and all who came to know her
and enjoy her friendship.
EIGH WELLS PRENTICE, of the Department of Social Studies, was born on March 22,
1887, in Brooklyn, N. Y., the son of Levi Wells Prentice and Emma Sparks Prentice.
He was graduated from the Philadelphia Central High School, in the Latin Scientific Course
in June, 1907, with the degree of A.B. He then attended the Philadelphia School of Pedagogy,
graduating from that institution, in February, 1910. Continuing his advanced work he was granted
the degree of A.B. by Temple University in June, 1912. Writing the thesis, Colonial County Gov-
ernment in Pennsylvania, he was accorded recognition by Central High School, for this achieve-
ment. From the University of Pennsylvania, in June, 1918, he received the degree of A.M. for his
work in the field of History.
Mr. Prentice taught from 1910 to 1916 in the Philadelphia elementary schools, the last five
years in Manayunk school. For two years he was an instructor in the Frankford Evening High
School. From 1916 to the date of his death he was a successful and much beloved teacher of the
Germantown High School.
He was a member of the Society of the Founders and Patriots of America, the Sons of Ameri-
can Revolution, the Germantown Historical Society, and the Philadelphia History Club.
His colleagues feel that he occupied a place of unique value in the life of Germantown High
School, first, in his love of and interest in the boys and girls in his classes and those in the Rail-
road and Stamp Clubs of which he was sponsor, and second, in his minute and accurate knowledge
in the field of Early American History.
He possessed an abiding and genuine faith in high idealism of life and conduct. In the words
of a member of the faculty, "he never made any weak compromises with truth as he understood
it, developing in the gradual evolution of history."
Respected and beloved by his colleagues in the Department of Social Studies and the faculty
as a whole, the memory of his personality and work will live on in the hearts and minds of his many
friends and of the students in this school.

MISS E. GRACE HARDY
HOW DO YOU DO?
Y FIRST real touch with this good friend-my 'QHow do you do?,'fwas on the floor of the third story
of the William Penn High School, when the practice of dismissing and receiving our classes brought us
two, having adjacent rooms, together as neighbors for a little pow-wow at each changing hour. At one
of these early meetings, I recall that she introduced to me the then new limerick:
"For beauty I am not a star
There are others lovelierfarg
Myface, I don't mind it,
Because I 'rn behind it,
It's the people infront that I jarf
With these early contacts, I sensed her special charm and always during that year at William Penn our touch
and go was one of cheer and smiles.
In September, 1911, she came to the Germantown Annex for Girls, teaching mathematics and forming one
of that dear group of friends and teachers that make the memories of those years very precious to us all, teachers
and pupils alike. Always that same contribution of cheer and smiles lived on, making her one of the most cher-
ished members of our little group.
In September, 1915, with the enlarged faculty and the procession of over eight hundred girls, she came to
the Germantown High School, the consummation of the five years of life in the annexes, both boys, and girls'.
Here in her classroom-number 130-in corridor and assembly, in dining room and faculty meeting, in season
and out of season, teaching her girls-later, girls and boys, touching the lives of many more closely and sym-
pathically than mere Algebra and Geometry lessons, she was one of us. Patient, wise, always helpful-many a
pupil will have kindly memories of comfort and aid.
With the faculty-principal and teachers-there has been always loyalty, cooperation, sympathy, a jest
with its laugh, a generous gift when collected for sympathy in sorrow, or celebration of joyfalways a dear com-
panion. She leaves a memory of cheer and smiles.
When Miss Hardy no longer belongs to the life of school, which has been so large a part of her full life, with
her fine preparation in Baltimore at the Public Elementary Schools, at the Girls' Leahin School, and at Goucher
College, where she received her A.B.-with her years of teaching at Goucher College, at Westfield, New Jersey,
and at Mary Baldwin Seminary in Stanton, Virginia, and here in Philadelphia and Germantown-when thus
she changes from school to home, with its varying obligations and opportunities, may she retain warm mem-
ories of us, her school-life friends, and heartfelt, loving wishes for her new life. We, her friends here, will bear her
in dear remembrance, her cheer and smiles-and so-"Goodbye.,' MARY 5- HOLMES-

ACH year Germantown High School, to-
gether with the several other high schools
in Philadelphia, the hundreds in Pennsyl-
vania, and the thousands in the United States,
pour forth their graduates, young men and women
about to enter college or business, ready to take
an important part in civic affairs.
The procedure is not new. Yet today, when
the patriotic ties are more closely felt than ever
before, and when the conditions of world govern-
ment rise to challenge fresh combatants, this event
of graduation attracts new attention, interest,
It is, or soon will be, squarely up to us to attack
the problems we are Sure to face-Self-adjusb
ment, Self-support, and Self-confidence. We can-
not achieve one of these three without the aid of
the other two, nor possibly succeed in life without
the acquisition of all three.
Therefore, since no one can do the job for us,
we must all struggle alike to the common end-
Self-securityfattained through devotion to na-
tional and civic affairs.
T HAS given ine greater pleasure than can
be expressed to have helped to bring to you
this CLASS RECORD. It does not, however,
belong to us, the editors, nor to the staff. It be-
longs to all of us, our entire class.
We have tried to present in this book the actual
record of the activities of our Class of June, 1941.
Here we have included the complete story of our
high school years.
The teachers under whom we have worked,
the advisers of our class, our athletic teams and
their records are all in these pages.
Wie have recorded the high spots of our Senior
year and the extra-curricular activities in which
so many of us are interested. Here are pictures
of our friends, whom we hope to keep as close in
later years as they now are.
We have produced a CLASS RECORD that we
hope will be the bond of remembrance of our
happy days in Germantown High School.
LEVVIS B. LOGAN.
N ClCRMANTOW'N, we are proud of our newspaper, the Clipper, which is pub-
lished by the members of the Clipper Staff under the able supervision of Mrs.
Coodman. Everybody in the school is invited to write articles for the paper,
and has a possibility of becoming a member of the staff.
The Clipper Staff is the backbone of the paper, and is headed by the capable
editor-in-chief, "Billw Oldach. Daily after school, the members may be seen work-
ing hard to send the Clipper to press on time.
Some of the many interesting features of the Clipper arc: "The Three Bearsf,
"Clipper Clapsf "Duds for Debs," "Tisc Disc," "Wadda Ya' Sayf, "Views and
Revicwsf, and all sorts of sports' articles.
As a member of the Philadelphia High School Press Association, and the Co-
lumbia Scholastic Press Association, the Clipper has won many prizes, and we hope
it may win many in the future.
HE Cliveden Magazine is the oldest publication of Germantown High School.
lt was first published in 1915, one year after the school was opened. From the
excellent art work of the cover to the last page, the Clivedcn is full of interesting
reading matter. Each issue contains new and different material. The magazine
offers short stories, plays, reviews of movies, humorous tales, and many other inter-
The Cliverien staff and its faculty advisers encourage the literary talent of the
school. They place posters on the bulletin boards urging pupils to write for the Clive-
rleng they sponsor short story contests during the course of the year offering prizes
for the best stories receivedg they publish any poem or other article that seems to
meet their required standard. For these reasons the Cliveden has been the most im-
portant force in furthering the literary attainment of Germantown High School.
The Cliverlen staff and its contributors owe Mrs. Suteh a great deal for her help-
ful work in publishing such an excellent magazine. Mr. Laderman has done a real
job with the sales of the Cliveden, for the detailed work in handling the financial side
of a publication is no small or easy task.

HE Committee of Ten consists of ten students from the highest grades who
are elected by the Senate in the last meeting of each term. The purpose of

directed the committee.

Senators and Alternates are assigned to special duties, some are sent to the stairways on the first floor to
keep the students from coming upstairs from lunch and wandering through the hallways. They also keep the
students going in the right directions on the "up" and "down" stairs. They also help in the lunchrooms which
are one of the biggest problems confronting the Senate.
The Senate not only governs the students but it aids the finances of the school by collecting Senate dues of
five cents from each student in the school. These dues are collected several times each term and the money in
the treasury is then used for the Students' Assistance Fund, to defray the cost of the "G" pin awards, and for

ness, and success in all your undertakings.
The goal for which we have striven so many years is now at hand. We have
reached the end of our school life together and soon we shall go separate ways. Some
of us will continue our educationg others will enter the business world, but. let us all
remember the friendships which were so dear to us in our high school days.
I wish to thank you for the honor you have bestowed upon me by electing me
your Class President. With the help of our class advisers, Miss Mullikin and Mr.

NE of the most interesting activities of the school is the Shakespeare Contest,
which is held near the end of each fall and spring term. This contest is spon-
sored and judged in part by the Womenis Shakespeare Club of Germantown,
which presents the first prize of five dollars.
The contest is arranged by the Dramatic Club, with the cooperation of the
Mothers' Association. It is held in the library and consists of selections from Shake-
speare plays. Students from the top three classes are permitted to compete, although
others may enter without being eligible for a prize.
The participants are coached by the sponsors of the Dramatic Club, Miss Marion
Prince and Dr. John E. Mason. These faculty members also guide them in their
choice of selections.
Elizabethan costumes, belonging to the Dramatic Club, are worn. This year a
set of new costumes was bought and used in the contest. Contestants are urged to
give some of the more rarely played recitations and dialogues from Shakespeare.
A judging committee consisting of several members of the faculty and a repre-
sentative of the Germantown Shakespeare Club, awards first, second, and third
prizes. While the judges make their decisions, tea is served to mothers, faculty, and
The first prize, awarded at the February commencement, was won by Marie
Mfinroe as Rosalind in As You Like ll.
The second and third prizes were won by James West for his portrayal of Henry
V in a speech for the defense of England, and Betty Bradford as Lady MacDuff in
Catharine Cualtieri received honorable mention for her presentation of Lady
Percy from Henry IV.

EMORIES come back not only to me, but to all of us who have spent tl1ree
or four years in Germantown High School. Those happy, carefree days, those blue
Mondays, days when the report cards were issued, football games, school plays, the
proms, initiations into local fraternities and sororities, assemblies, and many other
memories of our school, return. Yes, each one will remember something particularly
exciting that happened while he was in high school.
A few of us will remember the bright sunny day in September, 1937, when we
entered our future Alma Mater. We were not very large and we came from small
grammar schools and were engulfed in the hustle and bustle, the buzzing corridors,
and myriad classrooms of the new school. We were the skeleton crew of the present
ln February, 1938, we took our first step up the ladder tow ard graduation. We
were 9B,s and did not feel so small because we knew our way around the school, and
there was a class lower than ours, nowl
The following September a flood of students descended upon Germantown from
the junior high schools of the vicinity to enlarge the sophomore class. These sopho-
mores were really freshmen in regard to being new in Germantown. lt was their turn
to go around the school with wide eyes looking for their classrooms, while those who
had been in the school since 9A sat back and watched them. This new group brought
with them many students who were to become well-known around Germantown
lligh School. A few of them were: 'Teggyv McVicker, "Win1py"' Vrooman. "Mitzi"
Gimbel, and Carson Stiles.
In February, 1939, the whole class took another step toward our goal, the step
was into 1013. By this time everyone was fairly well settled into the routine of Ger-
mantown lligh School, and we set to work studying for the terms to come. At the
end of this term Edward Block was awarded the prize for the highest average of the
Junior year brought many changes. Everyone seemed to have acquired an inch
or two of stature, more poise, an "I-belong-here-now'i expression, and heavier books.
New teachers, new subjects, and harder work created the impression that there
would never be enough time for class organization.
But in 1113, under the capable supervision of the class sponsors, Miss Mullikin
and Mr. Jacobs, officers were elected. "Bob'7 Gordon, President of the Boys, Car-
son Stiles, Vice-President, "Bill" Suflas, Secretary, and "Wimpy'7 Vrooman, Treas-
urer. "Peggy', McVicker was Girls, President, Mildred Hudson, Vice-Presidentg
"Ginnie" Ruch, Secretary, and "Mitzi" Gimbel, Treasurer.
With these ambitious executives at the helm, the class grew into a well-organized
group fairly buzzing with plans for the Junior Prom and the purchase of class rings.
All details of the prom were taken care of by a hard-working committee headed by
"Jim" Wilschke. After much preparation and anticipation, June 14th finally arrived
and the lucky ticket-holders turned up at Cedarbrook Country Club to dance to the
music of Roger Kent's orchestra.
An efhcient ring committee, with Deirdre Rhodes as chairman, made it possible
for every proud junior to wear a Germantown school ring.
Those chosen from our class to serve on tl1e Committee of Ten for the follow-
ing term were Ann Nshley, Deirdre Rhodes, "Bart" Allen, and "wimpy" Vrooman.
That year we had looked forward to for so long came at last, the year full of
excitement and good times. We were seniors!
The "B" term started with a bang as the class showed its desire for variety in
the election of officers. ln the boys' selection, "Bob" Gordon remained as president,
".lack', Martin was the new vice-president, "Wimpy" Vrooman changed to secre-
tary, and "Bill,' Suflas became treasurer. As for the girls, Norma Wedttl took over
the secretarial duties.
Nctivities came thick and fast. Germantown's newer, better, and stronger foot-
ball team battled through a brilliant season, everyone took part in the schoolis twenty-
fifth anniversary celebration, and stage-minded students, some in our class, gave
their talents to the school play. Class business was limited to the collection of dues
under a new and more accurate system. introduced for the first time in tl1e fall.
While we were still in the midst of 121K work, plans for the RECORD BOOK were
begun under the guidance of Miss Lamine, -Xdviser. and Miss Hardcastle, Art Ad-
viser. The industrious spirit of the class was manifested by the large number of
students who applied for positions on the staff, but unfortunately, only a fraction
could be appointed. Those chosen started work immediately under the leadership
of Olga Domanski, editor, and Lewis Logan, associate editor.
Before the term ended, the next term's Committee of Ten was formed. "Wimpy"
Vrooman and Ann Ashley were President and Vice-President, respectively. Other
members from our class were Carson Stiles, "Peggy" Mevicker, "Bob" Gordon,
Deirdre Rhodes, and "Perf ie" Brown. The class was ready for its final term in
The February semester began with almost the same group of executives: "Below
Cordon and "Peggy", lNlcVicker, Presidentsg Carson Stiles and Norma Wedul, Vice-
Presidents, "Jimmy" Vililschke and 'Vlildred lludson, Secretaries: and "Bill7' Suflas
and "Mitzi" Cimbel, Treasurers.
With an already good start on 12B business, the class cooperated splendidly in
making plans for the luncheon, prom, and commencement. The committees formed
were headed by "Cinnie', Buch, Frank Carrol, Bruce Herold, Janet Kennedy, Peter
Osborne, and Shirley Young. Nlany other members of the class were among those who
helped to make a success of the school show, "June Mad."
Everyone seemed to be busy. To be sure, the rush of events was so great that
,I une crept up unnoticed, bringing at the same time the sad realization that old friends
must part, and the exciting promise of a new and different life after graduation.
The old order changelh,
Yielding place to the newf
And Cod fumls himseU' in many ways
Lest one good custom
Should corrupt the world.

munity high standards of Christian characterfl The members are outstanding

GER ANTOW HI Y
55 LICAN living, elean speech, clean scholarship, and clean sportsmanship," is
the platform of the Germantown lli-Y. These planks are the foundation of
tI1e eluh and the members try to live up to them. Membership in Germantown
lli-Y Club, is one of the most highly prized honors of the school.
The club itself is an organization of boys with high Christian ideals who have
the purpose of extending these ideals throughout the school and community.
The program of the Hi-Y consists of dinner meetings each Tuesday evening at
six o't-lock with a business meeting afterwards including a speaker or a discussion.
At each of this term's meetings there has been a guest faculty member present. The
highlights of the year's program were the "mother and sonw dinner, the dance, and
the joint meeting with the girls' lli-Y. Athletics are also included in the program
of club activities and are very popular with the members.
The officers this term were excellent, bringing the elub to a new high in standing
and usefulness. They are headed by "Bohn Gordon, President, and included "Wimpy"
Vrooman, Vice-President, Jim Mullen, Secretary: and Don Smith, Treasurer.
The backbone of the elub is its sponsor, Mr. Garton S. Greene, who. without
ruling, guides it in those channels that best, further its welfare and its work.

ERHAPS you saw yourself in the School Play this year-or, rather, someone like you. Are
you a girl of sixteen, like heroine Penny Wood CAlma Rau, Norma Wedulj in the throes of
her first love affair? Or are you a boy like Chuck Harris C'Dick', Mcllhinney, "Dodge" Ta-
bogal, who took a long time to realize that he was the object of Penny's affections, and that she was
the axis of his young love-life?
Mrs. Wood., Penny's mother QMarie Monroej, was young in spirit, well-dressed, and full of a
certain charm which made her house a center of neighborhood activity.
The life of Penny's nineteen-year-old uncle, Mervyn Roberts CHarold Moorehead, Frank
Rauchj, was blighted by the infatuation of Milly Lou Uean Cass, Eleanor Snyderj, the twelve-
year-old neighborhood nuisance.
Complications set in when Mervyn asked a "smoothie,' college friend, Roger Van Vleck fBruce
Herold, "Pete,7 Osbornel, down for a visit. Roger captured Pennyfs heart for a while and also
interested, but fleetingly, Mervyn's "glamour girl," Julie Harris CLois La Roche, "Pat" Dirkj.
Mr. Wood, Pennyis father C"Bob" DuBree, "Doug" Hydej, throughout the play, stood agreat
deal from his wife, but took it good-naturedly. Chuckfs father, Mr. Harris fAustin Landellj, gained
a better understanding of his son, and even became an enthusiast for gliders like Chuck.
Shirley and Ralph Wentworth CAlice Wurst, Lourainia Vrooman, and George Wellsj, friends
of the Woods family, were typical brother and sister. Effie and Elmer, the hired help who were
apart of the family,were portrayed by "Peggy" OiNeill, Bonnie .lean Hampton, and "Don" Cameron.
Associated with the play were: Production Manager, Mary Claytong Assistant Prompter,
Jeannette Armstrong. In the key positions on the business staff were: Chairmen-Accounting,
M. Morrison and J. Kirrstetterg Ticket Sales, L. Manning, C. Binswangerg Advertising, P. McCann,
S THE American public slowly wakes to the realization that a movie cannot
quite compare with "the real thing,'7 Germantown's Dramatic Club develops
the growing interest in stage productions within the school. Miss Prince and
Dr. Mason, the never-tiring co-sponsors ofthe vlub, are responsible for not only the
plays and skits given at the meetings, but for the school play as well. This term's

quaint the members with the art of debating. The activities include prepared
and impromptu debates, discussions, and occasionally challenges from other
schools are accepted. The club meets on the second and fourth Thursday of each
Once a term, the members and sponsors relax and enjoy a real social afternoon
at a party. Most of the talent for this afternoon's entertainment is drawn from the
club and includes instrumental music, dancing, singing, and impromptu debates.

URING its first term of existenrc, this club gained popularity by leaps and
bounds with its unique combination of the French, Spanish, and German lan-
guages. As a result, the number of members this term has doubled, asituation
which creates more problems to be solved by the sponsor, Miss Chubb.

the ways and customs of the people who speak them. There are some fortunate

HE A Cappella Chorus, under the excellent leadership of Miss Grace Evans,
has become one of the outstanding groups in Germantown High. This group's
popularity has steadily grown by their singing at churches, on the radio, and at
other social functions. The chorus makes a striking appearance in its new green and
white gowns, which were purchased for them by the classes of January and June,
1940, and the NIothers' Association.
We give three cheers for Miss Evans and her chorus for the many pleasant pro-
grams they have given us.

meetings. At one gathering a guest speaker spoke about Ancient Greece, another
time there was an "Information Please" program with the members asking the ques-
tions and the teachers answering them. ln May the club presented a Latin play in

RAILROAD CL B
OR many years the Railroad Club was under the helpful guidance of its adviser,
a member of the Social Studies Department. Mr. Leigh Wells Prentice. From
the time the club was organized, he accompanied them on many trips made to
the Philadelphia Model Club, the Annual Philadelphia Model Show, and to many
exhibits of streamlined trains that have had their showings in Philadelphia.
Frequently, at the club meetings that were held every Monday in Room 327,
Mr. Prentice would show exciting motion pictures about the Evolution of American
Transportation, Railroad History, and many other interesting subjects concerning
The Railroad Club suffered a great loss when Mr. Prentice recently passed away.
The faculty adviser taking his place, Mr. Charles Bortner, will also look after
the Railroad Club. Under Mr. Bortner's supervision the club plans to make extensive
trips to the Erie Avenue Engine House of the Reading Railway, the Forty-sixth
Street and South Philadelphia Engine llouses of the Pennsylvania Railroad, and the
Eastside Engine House of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad for the purpose of learn-
ing how the railroads are operated and to photograph their locomotives.
It is hoped that these trips, the railroad literature distributed by Mr. Bortner,
and the many discussions held at the club meetings, about the modern trains, Diesel
engines, and railroad safety, will be helpful to the members. It is also hoped that
these boys, with their practical knowledge of the American railroads, will be able to
contribute something toward the great National Defense program.
The ofhcers of the Railroad Club are: Robert Winkler, Presidentg Dick Mell-
hcnny, 'Vice-President: and Blake Moyer, Secretary.
HE students of Germantown lligh School now have the opportunity of joining
a newly formed club. Only under the able management of Mr. Primiano, the
sponsor, and Lois llerst, the president. has the Chemistry Club been able to
organize and accomplish fascinating work.
The members of this club, which meets on Wednesday afternoons, carry out ex-
pcriments in chemistry which arc optional in their classroom work.
Being in a chemistry class is not necessary for eligibility in the club. The club
ofliccrs this term are: Lois Kcrst, President, Betty Bishop, Vice-President, Austin
llillltlklll, Secretary, and Alim- Slillllfillllill, 'llrcasurer
VER since its organization, the Current Events Club of Germantown High
School has been under the able direction of Miss Grotevent. With her help
the club has had enjoyable weekly meetings. The members of the Current
Events Club are usually those students who wish to know more about the world
situation at the present time than their regular class periods furnish them. The
students obtain this information by having discussions and debates on certain sub-
jects, which are based on newspaper and magazine articles.
The members of the club this year are: Frank Rauch, Jane Lawrence, Loretta
Rauch, Zena I-Ieckman, Michael Smalet, George Laquer, Shirley Jacobs, Frances

HE Slide Rule Club is an organization for mathematicians and those interested
in higher mathematics and physics. The club, under the auspices of Dr. Jessie A.
Rodman, enables the students to learn the use of the slide rule. Dr. Rodman
has been the sponsor of the club since its organization.
The first term is devoted to simple calculations, multiplication, division, roots,
and powers. The following term, trigonometry is taught on the slide rule. The learn-
ing of these functions on the slide rule aids the student in his algebra, advanced geom-
etry and trigonometry. After the student has been in the club a year, he is eligible
to compete for a slide rule in the annual contest. On such an occasion, Dr. Rodman
gives the club problems, and the member getting the greatest number correct wins
Every member of the club feels that learning to use the slide rule in high school
is an asset for a future in engineering school or business.
The officers for this term were: President, "Jim" Wilschkeg Secretar -Treasurer,
HE Commercial Club, under the sponsorship of Miss Catharine Logan, meets the second Monday of each
month. All commercial students from IIA to 12B inclusive are eligible for membership. Activities include
lectures by representative business persons, and visits to places which are sources of practical information
to those who will shortly enter the business world. One of the attractions this term was a trip to the testing la-
boratories of a large retail concern. Members also enjoyed a party held at the term's close.
A worthy project of this club is the awarding of the commercial prizes to the boy and girl of the commercial
course having the highest senior averages.
The officers this term were: President, Dorothy Stevenson, Secretary, Eleanor Kullg and Treasurer, Florence

surgical dressings. Each term the girls dress dolls and fill stockings for these children.
The present officers of the club are: President, Virginia Lawsg Vice-President, Amy Yeagerg Secretary,
Edith Wrightg and T reasurer, Mildred Evans.
NE of the most interesting and educational organizations in Germantown High is
the Camera Club. Started by Dr. Bacon in the early days of the school, it was a
large active club of boys. Under Dr. Bacon's leadership, a dark room on the fourth
floor was made available for the club,s use. The group held an exhibition each year, hut
when Dr. Bacon retired last year the Camera Cluh was discontinued.
This term the club was organized once more under the supervision of Miss Young and
Mr. Gelman. Mr. Celman is interested in the processes of photographing, and Miss Young
in results of color work. The club gave an exhibition this year, showing to good advantage
the fine work done by the members.

ITH the arrival of autumn came one of the biggest thrills for a Germantown High School
student, the football season. Among the many veterans who returned from the previous
season were Luongo, Lutz, Miley, Spindler, Allen, Feeley, and the Green twins. Up from
the second team came Martin, Suflas, Carroll, and Ackerman. Studenmund was promoted to
In the first game, a favored La Salle team was downed by the untested Bears by the score of 7-6.
The next victim of the High Street gridmen was Olney. The backfield of Luongo, lNIartin,
Allen, and Sufias led the team to a 26-0 victory. After this game the football spirit of the school
was highly aroused, as was the fighting spirit of the team.
In their first acid test against a strong eleven, the Bears were held to a scoreless tie by North-
east. During the game, the green and white gridders marched to the one-yard line, but were stopped
by the strong Northeast forward wall.
When Gratz was crushed, 33-0, Germantown was in the running for first place in the Public
Next came the thrill-packed Roxborough game. The Indians outweighed the Bears and used
this weight to advantage by gaining a 19-7 lead. With Martin and Allen running reverses, Luongo
smashing through center, and Spindler snatching passes, the aroused Bears overcame the lead
and won by the score of 27-19.
As a result of the "win,'7 Germantown captured first place in the Public High League.
A supposedly weak West "Philly" team was next encountered, and the Speedboys surprised
everyone by holding the overconfident Clivedens to a scoreless deadlock.
Finally, the long awaited game with our traditional rival, Frankford, approached. The Blue
and Gold scored twice in the first quarter and held a 14-0 lead at the half.
A fighting Germantown team came out for the second half. Martin and Allen teamed up on
a passing combination that advanced the ball to Frankford's two-yard line. "Big Bill" Luongo
smashed over for a touchdown on his second line buck. Luongo, Lutz, and Miley combined on
around end plays, but the powerful Frankford line held the Bears on the one-foot line.
Although Frankford won the game, 14-6, Germantown had the Blue and Gold on the defensive
throughout the second half and held a 12-8 advantage in first downs.
We were the only team to score on Frankford, but the only defeat suffered by our boys yielded
the Public High League crown to them.
The last game of the season was the annual Turkey Day classic against Norristown. Both
teams were hampered by a muddy field, and the game ended in a scoreless tie.
Much credit should be given to Coach Augustin for the success of the team.
The seniors who graduate this June are Allen, Martin, Suflas, Carroll, Spindler, and Ackerman.

FTER dropping two pre-season games to La Salle and Penn Charter, the Green and White basketeers
successfully opened their official season by defeating Olney in the first league tilt by the score of 19 to 16.
However, the Bartholdmen settled back into the doldrums and lost four straight games to Northeast,
Bartram, Southern, and Central.
It was not until the Gratz game that Germantown was able to break that win column again when "Charlie"
Goldberg, sailed a last-minute field goal to give the Green and White a 26 to 25 decision. Germantown then
traveled to Doylestown to encounter the National Farm
School during the vacation period. After giving the
Clivedens a wholesome meal, the "farmers7, handed them
a 39 to 16 defeat to digest.
Beginning the new term by playing Ben Franklin, our
basketeers handed the "Poor Richards" a 34 to 27 drub-
bing with "Tom'7 1VIcGarvey, sinking six field goals for
Germantown. Next the public high champions, the boys
of West "Philly,'i came to Germantown, and the "Speed-
boys" proceeded to show our team that they were the
champions by defeating us to the tune of 31 to 18. The
Roxborough Indians scalped our team, but not until after
a hard fought battle, with the visitors winning, 36 to 24.
Traveling to Frankford to play our traditional rivals,
the Green and White avenged the defeat suffered in foot-
ball with "Bill'7 Sufias, former footballer, ripping the
cords for twelve points. The final score stood German-
town, 33, Frankford, 23. Germantown closed their season
by dropping a contest to Overbrook, 34 to 20.
The seniors graduating from this year's squad are:
"Bill" Sufias, "Charlie7' Goldberg, Lester Calkins, Bruce
Bunting, Carson Stiles, and "Wimpy,' Vrooman. With
"Tom" McGarvey, "Rip,' Brown,and Captain "Charlie,'
MacFarland returning next year, the chances for the
Green and White look rosy.
ERMANTOWNS soccer tean1 did not burn up tl1e league this year, but the other teams certainly knew
they were there. Although they won only one contest, the boys played hard fought games, losing by nar-
row margins. This was the first year the Green and White was represented by a team in the league, a
select circle consisting of only six teams. The young team that Coach Hynson put on the field gained valuable
first year experience. None of the boys graduate this spring so a veteran team will report for duty next fall. Out-
standing among the players was "Bucky", Miller, who was elected captain.
With the school yard being torn up and rebuilt, the squad was forced to practice at the Germantown Boys'
Club, which is quite a distance from the school. Credit is given to Ray Mullen for his valuable coaching assistance.

LTHOUGH the Green and White harriers of Germantown did not have a successful season, they did man-
age to keep out of the cellar by defeating Gratz. The outstanding members of this yearis squad were "Dick'7
Church and Charles Rickard. The latter won a beautiful cup by competing with an outside club in a Mara-
thon race. Bruce Bunting and james Brownsworth are the only members graduating, but with the other members
of the squad and Church and Rickard returning, Germantown should place high in the championships.
Too much credit cannot be given to those boys who do their best for Germantown without much publicity

RYOUTS for the track team were held up because the school yard was being repaired. There are plenty
of untried rookies who may nose out some of the veterans when given tryouts. From the cross country
team came Captain "Dick7' Church and Charles Rickard to run the longer distances along with Charles
Mcnges. Coach Reith expects "Bob" McKinney, star gymnast, to reach the height of eleven feet in the pole
vault. Sheppard returns for the hop, step and jump, while "Bob,' Luongo, Kershaw, Bower, and King compete
in the low hurdles. Other boys who are expected to round out the team are Wilson, Fisher, Oldach,and Murphy.
It is certain that with all this material on hand Coach Reith will develop a sound team, and be a threat in
the Public High League.
NE of the newer sports at Germantown High School, table tennis, is becoming increasingly popular. Under
the guidance of Mr. Shuster, the team was organized three years ago, when it became a member of the
Public High League, but chielly because of player shortage, has not yet been able to win the champion-
ship. During the 1940-41 season, the team, captained by "Dick" Garrison, won two matches while dropping six.
"Joe" Vila was the team's outstanding player and leading scorer. Other members of the team were: "Bob',
Van O'Linda, Frank Towey, "Lou" Roman, Ralph Malaby, "Jack" Seidman, Felix Stranges, Roger Preux,
"Bill" Price, "Bill" Bailey, "Bill,' Van 0'Linda, Claude Chouteau, "Bill,' Haff, and Franklin Brickman. Mem-
bers graduating are: Vila, Garrison, R. Van 0'Linda, Stranges, Towey, and Preux.

ITH the baseball season getting under way, Germantown's chances this spring
are not as bad as they seem. The only lettermen returning are Captain "Joe"
Moore and "lack" Kulp who hold down the hot corner and the keystone
sack, but Coach Raacke has much talent coming up from the second team. The
rest of the infield should consist of Charles at first base and Bissig at shortstop,
while Bender should see plenty of action behind the plate. "Bill,' Groves will be used
as a utility infielder.
In Charles MacFarland, "Bob" Miley, "Barty', Allen, and Vernon Dise, the
Clivedens have a formidable pitching staff which should win quite a few games with
the aid of some timely hitting from their teammates.
Outfielders Albert Chanco, "Bill" Suilas, "Tom" Cummings, and Marks round
out the team.
Germantown defeated Germantown Academy 7 to 3 in the only game played to
date. So with this as a start and if the newcomers develop., the Clivedens should
make a good showing in the Public High League.

ERMANTOWN High School's gym team placed fifth in the city champion-
ship meet, held at the Philadelphia Turners Gymnasium at Broad and Colum-
bia Avenue. Although four "Zwargmen" won places in the championship,
this was still not enough to bring victory to the Germantown team, because of very
keen league competition.
"Bohn McKinney and "Steve" Green won the city tumbling and side horse
championships, respeetivelyg Bruce Herold and Frank Smith tied for third place on
the side horse.
Next year the team will suffer from the loss of Bruce Herold, captain, and three-
year veteran, and co-captain, Frank Smith, a member of the squad for two years.
Warren Conrad, William Farina, 'Lincoln King, and Raymond Lepley, all first-year
members, will also graduate.
Dr. Zwarg hopes that many new members will report next year for the squad
as the positions of graduates this term will have to be filled.

HIS year Coach Strauss is dubious of the team's chances in the Public High
League. When "Bob" Miller, number one singles man last year, moved to
Washington, the burden fell on the shoulders of "Bohn Bodle and "Bob,' Van
O'Linda. One of these is certain to land the number one position, with ",loe,' Vila
playing number three.
The Green and White netmen will play all their home games at our home field
if the courts are ready. Otherwise, the Clivedens will continue to play host to the
visitors at the Allen's Lane Courts.

N THE fall term of 1938, a fencing team was organized in Germantown High School. 1t was sponsored by
lV1r. Laderman and coached by Dr. Swarg. A year later it was accepted into the Public High League. Al-
though the team has not won a championship, it can boast of an outstanding performer in William Govette
who graduated in June, 1940. Govette won the epep championshipin 1939 and the city foil championship in 1940.
This year the team was ably sponsored by hir. Weiss. Its members were: Howard Gewertz, James Bower,
and James Brewer in the foilg Leslie Kaufman and James Grifhth in the eppe.
After representing the school in fencing for three consecutive years, Captain Gewertz, Brewer, and Griffith
will lay down their swords in June, 1941.

HE 1940 golf team made one of the best showings it has made for years. It finished in second place after
Roxborough. This season the "straight hitting golfers" under the able coaching of Mr. Kehs, expect to
give the other schools a tough battle.
Through the courtesy of Marble Hall the boys are able to practice weekly and play their matches there.
Only two veterans from former seasons reported this spring, so there are several positions open for new-
comers. New members are "Lee'a Keeler, Malccxlm Remington, "Bud" Stiles, George Griffen, and "Bob,' Brewer,
while the veterans are "Jim" Wilschke and "Charlie', Wall. The managers of the team are "Bud,' MacDonald
and "Ken" Jolly.

HIC voluntary participation of every girl in the various gym clubs has brought
a widened interest in physical education. The cooperation and good sportsman-
ship shown one another in joining the different groups gives each girl something
to think about, for consideration of the other fellow is a good rule for everyone. Ex-
plicit teamwork is required in all sports and especially for those desirous of coming
through games victorious.
On Tuesdays there are the dancing classes, modern, tap and toe, under the super-
vision of Miss Freehafer. There are also leaders, swimming, and riding clubs.
In the spring a girl's fancy turns to thoughts of the Spring Festival. A May
Queen, selected by the girls of the senior class, presides and dancers perform the age-
old, but ever new, M ay Dance.
Other programs introduced during the year are: volleyball, soccer, hockey, has-
ketball, tumbling, and track and field work.
To help make these interests do their utmost a Girls' Athletic Nssoeiation has
been established each semester.
HE ardent followers of the classics participate every Tuesday in the funda-
mental teehniques of the ballet. The ballet now being practiced is entitled "The
Silver Swan.'7 The sleeping swans are awakened by the dawn breaking over the
horizon and almost instantly they become playfulg then as dusk comes on they grad-
ually become drowsy and fall asleep. The interpretation of swans as given by tl1e
dancers is delightful in its freshness and interpretation.
Miss Freehafer has studied the art of dancing and is therefore well titled to teach
it. The ballet group becomes larger each semester as more and more girls become
interested in the art of dancing.
EP, vim, and vigor fill the effervescing athletes of the Tumbling Club. The
tumhlers number over thirty, and are going ustrongf' The girls presented the
fruits of their labors at the Spring Festival. The pyramids which usually repre-
sent the finale are obtained after much practice and show the individual talent of
each member. Many of the girls have their own original stunts. With Miss Free-
hafer's creative mind, the club members have been able to prevent duplication.
Tumblers this term are: Strieby, Garappo, Mohan, Twining, Weaver, Kennedy,
Olsen, Sweeny, Thurston, Quinn, Idill, Lester, Mathews, Schreck, Albertson, Mullen,
Marsilio, Oldhem, Murphy, Wilson, Landis, Tressville, Peppelman, Bell, Jacobs,
Paskins, Tycher, Yerkes, Angstandt, Stonnelake, Weston, and Miller.
YMNASTS of the various grades gather on Wednesdays under the joint guidance
of Miss Wert and Mrs. Duffy. Each girl learns the respective aims of her
grade so that in class she may aid the other girls. The rhythmical coordination
of all the enthusiastic leaders is responsible for the harmony of the physical education

VERY Tuesday and Wednesday' a large splash echoes through the Y. W. C. A.
when the Germantown girls explore the depths of the pool, enjoying one of
the most healthful exercises. Under the sponsorship of Miss Morgan, the girls
are becoming proficient in the various graceful strokes and dives. Beginners, inter-
mediates, and advanced swimmers compose the club. Both the Junior and Senior
Red Cross Life Saving tests are given and each girl reaps the benefit ofher swimming
in health, enjoyment, and ability to aid in emergencies.
ANTERINC along the bridle paths near the Drive, our Riding Club looks very
picturesque. Miss Wertls enthusiasm and irrepressible vigor is reflected in
the growing popularity of the club. Under her careful supervision, the beginners
soon become "riders," The more experienced members are good horsewomen.
The club rides Tuesday and Wednesday under the direction of the following
ol'Hcers: President, Shirley Bell, Vice-President, Helen Reigelg Treasurer, Nancy
Smith, Assistant Treasurer, Grace Smith, Secretary, Emily Hubbs, and Assistant
Secretary, Eleanor Shafebook.
In History Class, they tell us William Penn
Was stubborn, and persistent midst his countrymen-
And thus arose the general opinion,
That in Pennsylvania's part of the dominion,
There lives a group of dull, persistent men,
With characters like that of William Penn.
They tell us nothing ever happens here.
That we grow less important every year,
With lack of movie stars and presidents,
World's Fairs, Warm Springs, and glam'rous residents.
But we who live here cannot understand
Their cries of woe. We like it.'
