MARQON AND WHITE
To G. H. S.
With a low bow and a humble air, we, the Class of 1920, pre-
sent to the school and our friends outside its portals, this, the
first year-book of the MAROON AND WHITE. In every page is a
sincere, if unwritten, wish for the good of the school and every
page fervently breathes the belief that you will carry forward
all that is best.
You'll find both sense and nonsense intermixed. Truly it is
that way everywhere. We hand you a good-sized bite of plain,
nourishing common sense and lest you choke on the size of the
bite we furnish a clear, sparkling drink of jest and top off the
whole repast with a salad of memories, just enough memories of
play to make it delectable.
It is our fervent hope that when our memorial has been pe-
rused you will not be disappointed in your expectationsg and if,
judging with leniency you will find it worth while, we shall feel
repaid for our labors.
MISS HELEN L. COPE, the worthy and
beloved Supervising Principal of the
Gettysburg Schools and the sponsor of
our publication. l-ler memory will never
fade from our lives.

Our Mirror shows:
In September, 1916, a merry band of sixty, sweet, young green
things entered the spacious halls of G. H. S. Most of us felt
quite small, realizing the great superiority of our upper-class-
How happy we were when we all came in,
Some real fat, and some real thin,
We began our work with hic, haec, hoc.
To be true and frank, this was no joke,
Then too, We heard of b-1-c, m-1-n and x-1-z.
But even then most all got through,
Some staid behind, but very few.
"Oh the horrors of that Freshman year." When we came out
of that dreadful ordeal of the "finals," we were all haggard,
worn and thin. But in the summer months we soon picked up
all that lost flesh and energy.
The next year came with troubles more.
How well it sounded, "A Sophomore."
It all Went w'ell for a little while,
Then slack she came, with little guile.
Oh how we struggled to reach the height,
But to be a Junior was Worth the fight.
We struggled on and on through those four years of High
School, never ceasing our work when little difficulties presented
themselves. But now in our Senior year, one will notice that
there are only forty left. Where is the remainder of our class?
Probably some have sacrificed themselves in the great world war,
others have taken unto themselves a husband or "vice versa."
Maybe some on account of change in circumstance have to earn
the daily bread, and others perhaps have gently dropped behind
and will appear again within. a year or two.
Within our merry band of forty there are fourteen true
blondes, and twenty-six brunettes. Our variety is seen in the
leanness and stoutness of our class, for the whole of us weigh
two and one-half tons.
And now those green things that have been growing for these
past four year, have suddenly burst forth into perfect specimens
of manhood and womanhood. Each one has a special ideal to
live up to. Each one a different road to travel. If crossroads
present themselves in this path of life, we must not follow them,
but continue in the same straight and narrow road with which
Throughout our four years' work in G. H. S. we have had
nothing to benefit us more than the great "World War." We
have learned that "Experience" is the great teacher, and have
been taught lessons of sacrifice, by bearing the burdens of the
war. We have become proud of our country, and know that she
is loved at home and revered abroad for the way in which she
has shared these new and unaccustomed burdensf She has
shown an efliciency that makes every American even prouder
than ever before to say, "I am an American." Are we as a class
who are almost ready to step into the heart of the world and pick
up the thread of life and hard Work that has been previously
dropped by one who has finished his life work, going to help in
problems of peace as we did the problemsof war? Insteadfgoff
entering a life of uselessness, we need not only to alleviate the
political and social unrest in our own country, but also to heed
the appeal borne to us on the waves of the Atlantic, to use our
resources to build up our sister countries. .
And now that our school days are over we are "Where the'
brook and river meet." We will stand at the boundiikiify line-bei
tween two epochs of civilization. In later years people will look
back on the present time and will say that the war of the twenti-
eth century was the parting of the way, the division between the
old and the new world.
We must not think at present of the good times we will have
in the future, for now our thoughts must be more serious, for we
are looking into a future that is filled with great events, and we
wonder where our footsteps will lead us. We think that we are
better equipped and more able to cope with the wor1d's diflicul-
ties for the war has taught us to be more sympathetic and self-

We not only preceive that she is apt

The fact that she leads her class in

Alumni Editor of Maroon and White
The night was a dreamland. The mystery of June
Was framed in its beauty by the silver of moon.
The stars of pure pearl in a lacquer of blue
Hung trembling, ethereal, evanescent and new.
The garden was perfumed with lilac and rose
And swayed to the melodies flowers compose.
The lantern of silver that hung just above
Shed a light fair and soft as the wing of a dove.
The wind whispered love songs in accents'so sweet
Each flower and fern courtesied low at his feet
With eyes of devotion.
The brook in its Wrapper of violet and green
Hummed a lullaby soft to the flowers unseen.
The dew-studded grass in the joy of the night
Cupped the diamonds aloft in the sheen of the light.
The spiderwebs silvered raised glittering on high
A staircase resplendent that reached to the sky.
From a corner remote of the haven so fair
Came the tuning of crickets across the still air.
Lo! the garden expectant was thrilled into life
By the musical tinkle of fairyland's' fife
And fairy commotion.
A bright fleecy cloud through the wide pathless way
Of the star-sprinkled heavens was burdened with fay.
Down the filigreed staircase with laughter and mirth
The whole fairy cortege descended to earth.
Coruscant and airy they trod on the green
Round the gem-crusted throne of their mistress, the Queen
In dim twilight groves and in light-checkered shade
They danced to the music the good crickets made.
The mist of their wings in the pale, mellow light
Made a rapturous vision of silver and white
Enchanting to see.
They danced all the night on the smooth-shaven green.
A picture, in faith, that no mortal has seen.
No thought but the present, they reveled in mirth
And enjoyed to the utmost their visit to earth.
But hark from the distance a clear brazen crow.
The cock giving warning that fairies must go.
The birds' sleepy twitters were heard here and there.
The sound of earth's wakening was borne on the air.
The sun from his throne raised his round ruddy head.
But he saw not a thing. All the fairies had fled. ,
And so now must we.
We've danced, Class of '20, and sung all our life.
We've been happy in peace. We've been happy in strife.
We've fumed over studies and laughed over play
In the bright light of youth that has glowed o'er our way.
We've had filigreed stairways to climb and descend.
Though they seemed not of silver they are in the end.
On the smooth-shaven path of our days in H. S.
We have all done our share, perhaps more, perhaps less.
We know if our way has been straight or been bent
If our days have been busy or idly spent.
It's up to us all.
If we've been the grasshopper instead of the ant.
It's too late to mend and we know that we can't.
The moonlight of '20 is now on the wane.
We're near to the end of our dear High School lane.
The clear crow of Life loudly bids us recall
That the sun of Commencement peeps just o'er the wall.
Take a last look at scenes reminiscently dear
And remember the time of departure is near.
Look ahead, dear old '20, at the future in store.
When she beckons and points to the half open door.
Go answer the call.
Pictures "to Be"
"We're Dreaming Dreams"
One fine evening, as I was sitting by the fireside and reading
some books from the library, I came across a very old one with
a very strange title. While reading this book, DeQuincy's "Con-
fessions of an English Opium Eater", I seemed to imbibe some
of the marvelous spirit therein and before long I was fast
asleep. As I slept, I dreamed, and my dream carried me back
through many years to my High School days and then back
again to the present time and then twenty years beyond until it
was somewhere in the year 1950. I seemed to be at this time in
a large city with beautiful buildings and wonderful parks,
through which ran many strange vehicles.
As I was tired of walking, I hailed a-cab and as the driver
opened the door something seemed to remind me that I had seen
this face before. It was a broad face and somehow it looked
more like a woman than a man, sure enough! now I recognized
the driver. It was one of my old classmates, Floranna Hoke.
I entered the cab and rode through the heart of the city,
meanwhile Hokie was explaining the sights to me and asked if
I would like to see the Old High School Building.
I consented readily and we entered to be met at the door by
a thin, oldish-looking man in spectacles. It was not hard to
recognize this man. It was Gib Bell and included on his staff
of helpers were Margaret Sanders, Professor of Physics, and
Jake Shmuckler, Janitor.
We walked around the building and, to my surprise, it was
the same old building. The people of Gettysburg still refused
to give the pupils a better High School.
I excused my taxi and climbing aboard a street car, I started
out for the National Cemetery, the old hanging-out place of the
gang. I looked at the conductor. Ha! it was another old pal,
Milo Diehl. On the walls of the car were some "ads" and I soon
was attracted by these. The first one to catch my eye was
"Pretzels like Mother used to make. The Wible, Berry Bak-
eries." Another was "Art School, York St., Misses Kissinger
I reached the cemetery after a time and I was surprised to
see our old friend, Keith Percival Burger, guiding cars over the
battlefield as Myrick used to do.
I stopped in the cemetery and was amused for a while by a
photographer who seemed to be skipping about like a young
lamb over the lawn. This was Jim Mumper. He had taken
over his uncle's business and was doing very well. I went to a
refreshment stand and saw as the waitresses, Mms. Louise Ben-
der, Mary Bercaw and Flora Mizell. I shook hands with each
and went on my way to town. While going in Baltimore Street
I saw a large brick building and a sign on the lawn proclaimed
"The Margaret Major School For Girls." I went still further
and came to the Post Office and remembering that I had some
letters to mail I entered and to my surprise I was met at the
door by Clare Routsong.
I asked him what he was doing. After he replied I nearly
fainted. He was in the undertaking and embalming business in
Bendersville. I posted my letters, after having shaken hands
with Bob Morris, the postmaster and Charles Ogden as mail-
Before I had gone a block I was attracted by a beautiful build-
ing which housed the Arcadian Theatre, formerly the Photo-
play. Several large signs attracted my attention and I noticed-
that there was a special attraction on that evening entitled "The
Woes of a Widow" starring Mrs. Treva Weikert Gilbert and
Donald Leroy Weikert. -
Before I had gone much farther I noticed a sign "Weiser's
Medicine Store. Everything in Patent Medicines."
I then went to the Times Building to see Bill Duncan but to
my surprise I was met at the door by Miss Ellen Tipton, Editor-
in-Chief of the Gettysburg Times. I talked with Ellen for a
while and then I walked to a neighboring park and purchased a
paper. I was tired and needed a rest so I sat on a bench and
read the news. The first thing that attracted my attention was:
DOCTORS MAKE M.ARVELOUS DISCOVERY
Malaria caused by Mosquitos.
Doctors Winebrenner and Roth of the Annie M. Warner Mem-
orial Hospital, after years of experimenting, find that the com-
mon mosquito is cause of malaria.

Just like them. The discovery was made many years before.
On another page I found the advertisement: ,

and horseback riding. Miss Reaser has won numerous prizes
as a dancer. Miss G. Weikert holds the records for the 220 yd.
dash. Miss Beard has ridden thru Ceasar, Cicero and Virgil
and is a very accomplished horsewoman.
I decided to go out to college and see if it had improved any.
On the gate was a sign which proclaimed, "University of Get-
tysburg. Established 1832.9 I entered and saw in the mathe-
matics room, Miss Lillian Weaver, instructing a class in Trigo-
nometry. In another classroom I saw Miss Alice Munshour and
Miss Martha Lentz, instructors in Agriculture.
I emerged from college, after having shaken hands with Ross
Sheely, coach of the baseball and football teams at that institu-
I was casually glancing skyward when I noticed a large air-
plane with the insignia somewhat resembling a set of traps. I
asked a passerby who this was and I was told it was Bob Dear-
dorff, the flying parson. Bob wanted to be an aviator and his
mother wanted him to become a preacher, so they combined
their ideas. A
I then went to a neighboring club of which I was a member
and heard a record by Rexitus Von Humbug Gilberto, the noted
I then shook hands with Ducky Armor, noted third baseman
for the New York Giants.
Soon I journed through the stores and met Miss Pfeffer, head
of the cloak and suit department of Lestz's, and Miss Esther
Hartman, head of the music department of P. W. Stallsmith's,
When I picked up a magazine in Stallsmith's I saw a story by
Maybelle Weaver, a new song by Evelyn Toot and I also noticefl
the "Good Food Department" by Misses Anna Oyler and Mary
I was glad to have seen my old friends and I must say after all
these interviews, "Ain't Nature Wonderful ?" -
The Senior Circus.
"Everybody out for the Senior circus. If you don't see it
you'll miss the chance of your life time. This way, people, the
show is now going on. Our exhibition covers about a mile of
ground and has almost a MILO tents. From as far as Seven

on, fellows, get your best girl' and step right up and buy your
tickets. They don't cost a great DIEHL. You won't regret it.

afternoon. So will that JAKE over there that's making the
people laugh. Here in this corner are two WEAVERS. My
friends, look well at these specimens. You'll notice that one
snorts through its nose. A study of these animals will tell you
that that is its method of laughing. The other is very indus-
trious. When it has nothing to weave it weaves dreams and
fibs. This suit of ARMOR has come victoriously through the
battles of York, Shippensburg and others too numerous to men-
tion. Yeh, it is kinda nicked but that's because it's so ancient.
It was once worn by MAJOR Shurtz. This BERREY was
brought from the wilds of Two Taverns. Botanists have been
unable to classify it but they think it is some relation to the
gooseberry. Here's a MORRIS chair that once held the form of
a great man, none WEISER in the world. He is the world-
famed inventor of the hamBURGER sandwich. You can get
samples of his invention at that stand over there for ten cents,
one dime. Now this way, friends, and I'll show something
worth looking at. You've all heard of and mebbe taken shower
baths. Well, this ain't a water shower it's a MUNSHOUR.
They do say it's part of the one Old Man Moon uses. Guess you
won't be much interested in this pair of monkeys, see them
everywhere. These are kinda unusual though, they're so af-
fectionate. Comical to see him KISSINGER, ain't it? This
funny thing? Why, that's our new BOB-tailed banANNA. It
grows in Chile but it got cold feet so we had to transplant it.
This place here you might call a pigpen but it ain't, folks.
It's our OGDEN. What man don't like a little den of his own?
Our 'ogs do, too, and we gotta humor 'em because they're prize
ones. If you keep MUMPER haps they'll come out. No, that
ain't an exhibit, that's just the OYLER that looks after the ma-
chinery. Good EVANS! there's the BELL. Boss wants me, I
guess. Have a HARTMAN and get out of my way. Don't be
WROTH about it, people, come back tomorrow and we'll have a

E. E. T.. '20,
Let's Take Vacation.
' I want to go out of the city,
From it's fashion and form cut loose,
And live in the open country
Where the gooseberry grows on the goose.
Where the catnip tree is climbed by the cat,
As she clutches for her prey.
The innocent unsuspecting rat
On the rattan bush at play.
Where the musical partridge drums on his drum,
And the woodchuck chucks his wood,
And the dog devours the dogwood plum
In the primitive solitude.
'I want to drink from the moss grown pump,
That was hewn from the pumpkin tree.
Eat mush and milk from a rural stump,
From form and fashion free.
Fresh gathered mush from the mushroom vine,
And milk from the milk weed sweet,
And juicy pineapple from the pine
Such food as we love to eat.
1 M. W.
A Senior Phantasy.
The day was dark and dreary.
My eyes were closing fast
When down the street on a rocking horse
Rex Gilbert flew apast.
His hair was wildly Howing
And his eyes of deepest pink
Were streaming tears of orange hue.
It made me stop to think.
And then another clattering,
A wail and then a scream.
Mark Wible on a turtle's back
Was shedding tears of green.
I thought that was the ending
And tried to go to sleepg
But Horace on his hands and knees
Was crawling down the street.
Then Slim she came a-pushing
A baby coach so small,
In which Floranna howled and cried
Because she couldn't crawl.
Came Routsong on velocipede
With face as black as night.
He had in tow fat Jessie Beard
Whose hair was silvery white.
And Howard Berry waddling
On bow-legs fat and round,
With a look of agony on his face,
As a choir boy was gowned.
As down the dusty highway
They sped with all their might
Don Weiser followed on ice skates.
He flew past like a kite.
And then came Mary Kissinger
In a sleigh of deepest red.
The horse was blue with purple stripes
Although he looked ill-fed.
And Lillian looking anxious
And Gladys looking wild
Flew past in candy wheel-barrows.
What made them look so riled?
Bob Morris on a broomstick.
He beat upon a drum
Which was tied to the top of his crimson hair
While he sucked his dimpled thumb.
I hailed small Donald Weikert
As he one-stepped past on skiis
And asked him what the trouble was.
His .answer was a sneeze.
But Harold was more cordial
In his Wheezy Ford of tin.
When I asked him where the fire was
Ile answered with a grin.
"Jakie's sellin' guinea pigs
Direct from the Hall of Fame
But he's had to give a lot away
Because his eyes are lame.
And so he shouted to his friends
To come while they were fresh
And he would give them all away
If they'd ketch 'em with a mesh.
The crowd that you have noticed
So flustered and upset
Are all a-going down to Jake
To get a little pet.
But Greedy Rex was heard to say
That he would get them all.
That's why you hear those wails and tears,
That's why you hear them bawl."
The day was dark and dreary.
My eyes were closing fast.
The traflic had all passed along .
And I could sleep at last.

The 1919 football team made a record that will probably re-
main on the books a long while before it is equaled. Eight vic-
tories out of nine starts and 243 points against the enemy's 6 is
the record that entitled them to claim the "Mason 8z Dixon Foot-
ball Championship for 1919". The success was due to the unity
of play that characterized the speedy backfield and iron line.
This unity was instilled into the team by Coach W. D. Reynolds
to Whom much credit belongs by reason of his faithful and hard
Work. Six members will be lost by graduation and they leave
big holes to till next year. The graduates are Captain and Full-

After displaying a brand of ball for the first half of the sea-
son that entitled them to the right of meeting teams that were
far above their class the basketball team ,was forced to discon-
tinue the season when scarlet fever broke out in college and
caused the right to the use of their gymnasium to be revoked.
Every member of the team was a player on the champion foot-
ball team. A glance at the basketball schedule below show that
one-third of the games were with teams representing schools
several times the size of G. H. S. Had the season been finished
the team would have had a record far better than that of any
team in the preceding years. The graduating members are
Guards Horace Armor and Jacob Shmuckler, Center Donald
Weiser, Forward Ross Sheely, Sub. Keith Burger.

Baseball Team -
Up to the time that we are pounding this out on our type-
writers the baseball teams show every indication of duplicating
the football team's record. They received one setback in eight
games and bid fair to complete the season without any more de-
feats. The two main happenings in the 1920 baseball season
were the development of Brady Armor as a second baseman and
the twirling of Ross Sheely. When Hunter, who before this was
the mainstay in the box, developed arm trouble Sheely stepped
into the breach and saved the season by very remarkable twirl-
ing. He has just turned in five straight victories in which he
has allowed but 16 hits. Brady Armor is the new man on the
team and he has given some very fine exhibitions of playing
around the keystone sack. The rest are all veterans having
played in their respective positions for at least a year and some
longer than that. Four members of the team graduate this
year :-Horace Armor, third baseman, Ross Sheely, pitcher and
rightfielderg Robert Deardorff, centerfielderg Jacob Shmuckler,

G. H. S. Dance.
On the evening of May 1, 1920, the pavements of North Wash-
ington Street were monopolized by couples wending their way
to the G. H. S. dance in Glatfelter Hall. The committee in
charge of the affair was Messrs. Arthur Buehler, Horace Ar-
mor, Keith Burger, Henry Scharf, Ross Sheely, George Scharf
and Robert Hartley. They composed the Finance, Decoration,
Refreshment and all the otherpcommittees. The success of the
afair shows what our boys have the ability to do. Beside the
large attendance of H. S. pupils and alumni were Miss Cope,
Miss Borge, Prof. Reynolds, Prof. and Mrs. Lefevre and Prof.
and Mrs. Shank.
The hall was decorated with maroon and white streamers, a
bower of the same screening the orchestra from view, and on
the wall at one end of the hall a large 1920 reposed. The lights
were covered with colored shades. At intermission ice-cream,
cake and candy were served to the dancers, that is, to most of
them, for there is a rumor afloat that some of the couples re-
ceived none whatsoever. If the rumor is founded on truth those
poor unnourished couples have our most profound sympathy.
As the dance was semi-Leap Year the girls did most of the
'swapping' of dances. It was a new experience and the ladies
kept tally on their fingers until their fingers were full and then
they had to fall back on the better memories of their partners.
Except for a few sad instanc-es where one dance was promised to
three or four different individuals everything was satisfactory.
The home waltz was being played as the clock in the tower
above the hall started to chime the last hour of the night and as
the last stroke of twelve sounded across the moon-lit campus the
last strain of the home waltz died away on the air. The G. H. S.
dance was no longer a reality, but a memory.
