SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
HE students of the freshman class who entered Gettysburg High School in 1930, entered
full of pep, enthusiasm, and plans. Little did these newcomers know of the hardships
that were to follow, of the 108 that entered only 77 were able to stand the strain.
This class did not allow its activities to remain dormant until the senior year, but instead
made a name for itself while the members were still freshmen. The 1934 class inaugurated
the custom of a freshmen party. Following this highly successful affair its parties through
all four years were enjoyed by the class and its friends.
The third year at high school brought forth the junior play which proved that the school
did not have to rely on the Seniors for dramatic ability. This play, "Climbing Roses", was
well presented by a capable cast including Robert Williams, Kathryn Gitt, Merville Zinn, Ted
Thomas, Betty Swope, Eleanor Hershey, Vida Rebert, Henry Roth, Keith Fischer, Helen
Benson and Isabelle Beal.
Not only were members of the class of '34 making themselves known in dramatic activi-
ties but they were also becoming active in athletics, in scholastic tests, and in the journalistic
Held as they assumed responsibility for the publication of the school paper.
The social activities of the Senior year began with the Hallowe'en Dance. In an
atmosphere of spooks and goblins the students danced to the melodious strains of Paul Ecker
and his Checkers.
Time flies-but its progress was as slow as freshmen going to classes when compared
with the speed with which the senior teams sold magazine subscriptions. It was a neck and
neck race until the last day when Charlie Abell's team nosed out Clarence Kitzmiller's to win
the Crowell Publishing Derby and free plates of ice cream.
The outstanding event in high school dramatic circles is the Senior Play. 'flt Pays to
Advertise" found many of the class behind the footlights. Clarence Kitzmiller and Charles
Abell again captained the two teams of ticket sellers.
Included in the accomplishments of the Seniors is the ability to dance, live, laugh, love
and dance some more. The Senior Prom will offer splendid opportunity for the class to
entertain alumni and friends at a spring dance.
High school days and high school plays and sorrows will be only a memory now that the
plans for a two day trip to Washington are about to be realized.
Plans for the commencement pageant are now under way. The theme will be centered
around "Education in Pennsylvania."
And thus the Seniors part, sadly, to go their respective ways, well pleased with their four
years of high school.

Forward, my worthy comrades, class of thirty-fourg
Welve reached the end of book-toil, life has opened wide its door,
We've hnished lesser learning taught us by our sires,
We must learn now through experience to climb to nobler spires.
Harlc! to the call of duty! The world does forward strive.
Life is swift and arduous, and only the strong survive,
No longer may we shirlc our taslcs, and stop to play,
But conquer all those obstacles that face us day by day.
Unsheath the sword of knowledge, sound the battle cry,
Enter life's ceaseless struggle with defiance in your eyeg
Ascend the upward path, with hope beneath your breast,'
With steps so firm you'll reach the top-youire bound to pass life'
Lift high the torch of wisdom, let truth lead you on
To reach those goals you've set, and to ascend success, throne,
Strive on, fellow classmates, with all your power and main,
And every honest effort will be crowned with worthwhile gain.
But in these years to come, when parted we shall be,
And scattered by the hand of fate-,tis then we,ll think of thee,
O Gettysburg, the alma mater we adore,
And of that steadfast group of friends-the class of thirty-four.

OOD character, high scholarship, ability to be a leader, and willingness to serve are
qualities which the student must attain to become a member of the National Honor
The Gettysburg chapter of the National Honor Society was organized early in the autumn
of 1931. The symbol of the organization is the lceystone, at the bottom of which are inscribed
the four letters-S. C. L. S.-which stand for the four qualities of membership.
The organization is limited to Seniors and Juniors, elected twice during the school year.
Harmon Furney, of the class of 1934, was elected to the Honor Society on March
In the first semester of their Senior year, Virginia Jones and Charlotte Nvaltemyer were
initiated as representatives of the class of 1934.
Kathryn Gitt, Clarence Kitzmiller, Keith Fischer, and Henry Roth from the class of 1934,
Virginia Storrick, Robert Hanson and Cedric Tilberg, class of 1935, were formally initiated
in assembly, March 28, 1934.
Members of the National Honor Society are elected by the faculty of the high school.
Mr. Baker, Mathematics teacher, and Miss Larson, Latin teacher, are the advisers of the club.
The ofhcers of the active organization are:
President . .. .. HARMON FURNEY
Secretary .. CHARLOTTE WALTEMYER
Treasurer . . VIRGINIA JONES
HE Hi-y is one of the largest and most active clubs of the high school. The member-
ship consists of boys chosen from the three upper classes. The aim of the club is to
create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community high standards of
The program of the past year has been profitable both socially and financially. Splendid
tallcs from local speakers, ping-pong tournaments and short hilces provided the members with
The members having obligated themselves to furnish gold footballs and basketballs to
the Senior members of these teams, they worked whole-heartedly to secure the amount of
money required. The sum needed was obtained from the proceeds of informal dances held
after several of the basketball games and from candy sales at the games.
The club holds its annual banquet in May and at this time the awards are presented to
eligible team members.
It is to Mr. Forney, faculty advisor, that the club owes much of its success. His efforts
have guided the Hi-Y club into paths of unselfish service.

HE Debating Club of Gettysburg High School, conducted as an extra-curricular activity,
had an interesting program of debates during the late winter and early spring months.
This club was organized several years ago for the purpose of promoting interest in
debating in the local high school and in the town.
Gettysburg High School's debating team is a member of the Southern Pennsylvania
Inter-scholastic Forensic League. The other members of this league are: Shippensburg, Car-
lisle, Chambersburg, Waynesboro and Hanover. Preliminary debates are held between the
teams of the tri-school division to determine the league winner at Gettysburg College in April.
Debates outside of league competition were held with Washington, Baltimore and the
Gettysurg College Freshmen. The question debated was the nation-wide subject for high
schools, "Resolved that the United States should adopt the essential features of the British
system of Radio Control and Operationf'

OR the past several years, one of the most active organizations in Gettysburg High School
has been the glee club of mixed voices. This chorus is composed of about seventy
voices, and three successful operettas have been presented by them. This music club is
under the supervision of Miss Dorothy Brindle, supervisor of music in the Gettysburg Public
In 1932 the operetta Q'In Old Louisiana", starring Josephine Codori and Eva Sachs, was
presented. "The Count and the Coed" was presented in 1933 with many of the members of
the class of '34 taking prominent roles. Those who took part were Betty Swope, Charlotte
Waltemyer, Keith Fischer, Robert Shriver, Richard Fox and Paul Anzengrubet.
In 1934 "Riding Down the Sky" was presented to one of the largest audiences ever
attending a high school performance. Virginia Jones and John Rosenstengel portrayed the
leading roles as "Carmelita" and "Ben" respectively. Other members of the class taking
prominent parts were Merville Zinn, Robert Williams, Betty Swope, Mary Jane Applet,
Kathryn Gitt, Paul Anzengruber and Richard Fox. The characters all portrayed their roles
in a pleasing manner and revealed the great amount of time spent in the preparation of this
During each Christmas season the chorus presents a program dealing with the events
appropriate to this occasion. In 1933 the Cantata "King All Glorious" was presented and in
1932 the pageant "The Christmas Story" was given.
The first "Spring Revuen of the choral club was given in March, 1933. This proved
successful and a second revue was given in May, 1934. These programs represent the com-
bined eiforts of both the glee club and the orchestra.
GETTYSBURG HIGH SCHOOL BAND
Director, E. S. LONGANECKER
HE Gettysburg High School Band, since its organization in 1929, has become an inte-
gral part of the life and activities of the school. From a few members, with little or no
equipment, and with little support and enthusiasm, the band, now under the direction
of Mr. Longanecker, has grown in membership, has enlarged its equipment with a selected
library of music, instruments and uniforms, and has come to have the cooperation of the
school and community as well as to have sufficient enthusiasm to encourage beginners in the
grades to take up instrumental work.
Various athletic events, patriotic and community parades, the annual band contest of the
National Forensic League, and public concerts provide much opportunity to play and the
incentive for the boys and girls to strive to belong to the band.
Development of technique on an instrument and an understanding of music for enjoy-
ment are the goals for which each member strives, while balance in instrumentation, unity and
perfection of tones of the ensemble, and interpretative execution are the aims of the band as

"It Pays to Advertisef' the Senior play, presented April 27, was enacted solely by mem-
bers of the Senior class. It was evidently a success, judging from the reaction of its thrilling
moments upon the audience.
The plot was woven about a millionaire soap king, Cyrus Martin, who made a bet with
John Clark, a rival soap manufacturer, that Cyrus, son, Rodney, would earn more money in
a year than Clark's son, Ellery. Then in order to make his son go to work, Cyrus asked Mary
Grayson to cause his son to fall in love with her. Mr. Martin disinherited Rodney, hoping
the incentive of his love would force Rodney to work. The son got in touch with a "live-wire"
advertising booster, Ambrose Peale. They combined their talents to form the "B" Soap
Company, "unlucky for dirtfl The main purpose was to advertise "U" soap, so strenuously
to Cyrus, that he would buy the company. The Comtesse de Beaurien who was to help the
company, turned out to be a fake. Meanwhile, just as the soap company seemed a total
failure, the boys' sensational advertising finally succeeded. After a great sale of soap, Cyrus
Martin agreed to back them, thus assuring their continuous success. Mr. Martin was very
proud of his son, and Rodney and Mary were married.
We owe the success of our play to Miss Mcllhenny, Miss Scott and Miss Ramer. Due
to the recent illness of Miss Mcllhenny, Miss Scott and Miss Ramer helped direct the play.

SENIOR CLASS PROPI-IECY
It was a warm May day in I942 when the telephone rang in my ofhce in the Times building. I
answered it, "There's a big fire on Bill Rife's farm," the voice was hysterical. I could get no more infor-
mation from that source.
"Grab a camera," I shouted. Dorsey Stoner, our cameraman, grabbed his coat and followed me to
the car. We shot out into the street, nearly running over Dr. Keith Fischer. At our command he
clambered into the seat. "Big fire, may need your help!" I yelled.
We spun around the new square f just completed by Donald Sheely and Co.! and went out Cham-
bersburg street, dodging the debris on the street from the new tailoring establishment of Jim Gilbert
which was in the process of completion.
"What were you doing when we picked you up?' I asked Keith.
"Oh, just drumming up business for Miller, Shriver, and Culp,', he replied.
"Yes, but Eddie's a doctor, Bob's an undertaker and Harold's a florist!" I protested.
"Correct, and in the right sequencelv he snapped.
We drove on in silence until we approached the line of cars heading for the fire. It seemed that
all Gettysburg was going to the fire. Charlie Abell was in the line in his grocery truck. "Ginny"
jones, "Kotty" Gitt, and Jeanne Hamilton, local teachers, were trudging toward the fire. Their car
could get no farther in the crush of traffic.
At last, we, too, were forced out. "Bud" Anzengruber and "Honey" Trestle, the college coaches,
waved to us. We walked toward them in the mud.
Lawyer john Brehm and Eddie Plank, the college swimming coach, joined us for awhile. Then we
came upon Vida Rebert, Helen Benson, and Sara Gehr, local nurses doing first aid work among burned
and exhausted firemen. We left Keith there. I saw "Cubbyy' Thomas lying there with a broken leg.
He had been struck by a falling rafter and now Dr. Eddie Crist was setting the leg.
Then we went to the Ere line. Fire Chief Bill Stoops paused a moment to get a drink from a
i'Hey Chief!" I yelled, "Any idea how it started? ,,,, U
"Spontaneous combustionf' he said and grinned.
In front of us the two Deitch boys of vaudeville fame, and Bud Deardorff, manager of the Sweet
Pea Fruit Farm, were wrestling with a hose.
Richard Fox, either of Penn State or State Pen, I forget which, came running from the pumper.
Some men were running past. I saw Don Feeser who contributes his sax appeal over a national
network with his saxy band. Walter Coshun, bookie for "Ed" Crist, "Harm" Furney, local valentino,
"Bud" Zinn, brewer, and Clyde Spangler, farmer, went past. Then a wall crashed and flames shot out.
Everyone ran back, Helen Eckard, winner of the Noble prize, tripped and nearly fell, Johnnie Guise,
representing an old established insurance firm helped her to her feet and ran on beside Genevieve Cluck,
the movie actress, and "Mil" Cleveland, the little girl who made good in a big way.
Mary jane Appler, another actress, and "Issy" Beal, wife of a local grocer, were wandering through
the crowd distributing coffee and cakes.
The two Butt girls, now Mrs. Trostle and Mrs. Anzengruber, were helping with bandages.
We bumped into Catherine Chamberlain and Annie Holowka, modern novelists. They were
frightened but I told them there was no danger.

Then the roof fell and the following rushed by: Hazel Tipton, beauty expert, Lucille Horner, the
poetessg Everett Wills, the screen star, passed yelling something that sounded like 'Huck" Williams is
in trouble. Two screen stars are trouble if kept together.
Someone stuck a cup of coffee into my handg it was Hazel Wfilliams, a fellow worker on the Times.
She was gone with Ruth Weikert, the teacher, before I could touch het.
"Hey, Stoneyf' but Dorsey was goneg I went in search of him. He was helping a contingency of
nurses and teachers, who had been pressed into service. I saw Betty Troxell, waving her arms, yelling
something to Lottie Staley and Ruth Miller. Ann Maust was there. I greeted het, "How's the C. W.
today?" Naomi King grinned as Lil Mumper, Romaine Plank and Btty Swope came up. I inquired
what they had been doing since they left school. "Light housekeepingf, they replied simultaneously.
Another trio approached, Elinore Hershey, the athlete, Maybelle Kadel, the Y. W. C. A. worker,
and Verna Heck, the interior decorator, passed us and moved on into the crowd. Charlotte Waltemyer,
a dean in a well-known college for women, Ruth Dougherty, Abell's helper, Irene Gallagher, stenographerg
Paul I-Iarbaugh, Democratic candidate for governor, Eleanor Cluck, now busy with a career, Virginia
McPherson, chemistry teacher, "Rosy", successor to Joe Pennerg Mary Heagy, a shop ownerg Evelyn
Strickhouser, her partnerg Charlie Woodward, the big business man, and Ruth Witherow, his bookkeeper.
Dorsey leaned over and said, 'iThis looks like Sunday afternoon on the boardwalkf,
I turned toward him as someone bumped me. It was Carleton Biesecker, the Mennonite preacher
who had succeeded Billy Sunday. He yelled at Betty Miller, the dress maker, and Jean Newman, the
librarian, before disappearing into the crowd with Charlie Pitzer, the astronomer.
