SCOTT The Girard College Press 2 Commencement Record Ours be the triumph however fate falls. Life is no dream in the clover. On to the walls! On to the walls! On to the walls—and over! —Herman Hagedorn. January, 1930 3 EDITORIAL e -—a “Oh, the lives of men, the lives of men In pattern molds be run—” Another turn of the loom and another tapestry is finished. The weaver stands back and surveys his work. His face lights up with the joy of satis¬ faction, but he returns quickly to his loom, and proceeds with another task. Tire¬ lessly, ceaselessly, idealistically—he goes on with his labor. It is never done. Time’s busy wheel has turned again. Girard College, a loom in which manhood is woven, a machine in which lay many of the secrets of our destiny, has turned out another product. The weaver, the Girard Faculty, has led us and guarded us throughout our days of trial; and we bow to him with deep ap¬ preciation. He is the maker of the spirit—the weaver of character. Does he rank us above or below those who have gone before? Shall we ever know ? We are confident that we have done our best. We should not say that our lives represent the finest texture of the brightest tints or that we have advanced the standards of Girard beyond all precedent; that we have attained greater heights of accomplishment than our predecessors, or that none can aim as high as we. We do contend, however, that we have tried hard to complete our course here like men, and pass to our successors a torch flaming with the right spirit. Yet, just as the turning of the weaver from the loom marks the completion of another tapestry, so does our graduation mark the completion of a found¬ ation in life. The superstructure we must build ourselves. As we pass through the portals of this great institution we find ourselves face to face with the great challenge of life. Up to this point, others have taken the initiative in fashioning our lives. They have carefully woven and inter¬ woven the strands of knowledge, habit, and experience for us, and laid securely a foundation on which we now stand separately and alone. Now the second tapestry of life is for us to weave. This is the work of the near future. We cannot stand still; we must progress. But who shall now do the weaving ? We must do it. Our lives are what we make them, and the key to our success lies in the words—“carry on.” Carry on with the spirit of the weaver, as he unselfishly sacrificed his interests for our benefit. Carry on with the same determined, yet congenial attitude which he has shown toward us. Carry on with the noble ideals he has so carefully inculcated everywhere among us. Let us not disappoint him. Let him turn to his task with a cheerful heart and go about his work again with the joy of satisfaction. God bless him. Let us go forth embracing the precious tradition that “Our Girard, our Alma Mater, She is making men.” 4 Commencement Record CLASS ADMINISTRATION UPPER SENIOR John Mason Edward William Phillips Robert Morris Rees Reed Lee McCartney Dominic Latella John Mason UPPER JUNIOR Edwin L.

The first one was held on May 25, 1928. Excitement and spirit ran high from the beginning until the end of the party. Ihen came the Junior-Two social evening on the twenty-first of December, 1928. Decorations portrayed the Christmas spirit. No qualms raced through bodies of students to deny them the full measure of joy in paying courtesies to guests many of whom had joined us at the May appointment; we were veterans of society then. We left the hall that evening with mingled feelings of joy and regret; joy in the new, friends and delightful experiences we had just had, and regret in the realization that much time would pass before we could come togeth¬ er for another good time. The following “Ides of March” brought our third social. No Caesar met a soothsayer who would warn him of ominous happenings, and none was necessary for this occasion seemed even more happy than any preceding one. Saint Patrick was given his due in the form of shamrocks and green bows, which many of the boys wore, and little green handkerchiefs which peeked slyly from coat pockets. This third social was “magnificent” to us. If life could go on affording richer experiences similar to those so skill¬ fully planned for us at Girard, what a joy all of it would be. The last social, best of all, was a scene of gayety. Everyone caught the spirit of the evening expressed this time in a series of novelty dances and much general hilarity. President Mason asks this opportunity to express warm appreciation to all those who bore the task of making this and all our social affairs successful. They stand out each one unique in our high school course. In particular we thank the decorating committee managed by each class president and led three times by Remo Di Donato who gave thought and labor without end. We shall always be grateful to you. Now that all of them are registered with the past, and the colorful decorations of their setting have been torn down, they remain forever delightfully in the background of our memories. “The fartherest is yet the fairest. The life that is yet to be Holds ever the past and the present. Itself the soul of the three.” January, 1930 7 From the Stage The Class of January, 1930, presents its public appearances in the following record: Ours was the first and only class to attempt any presentations in the audi¬ torium on Wednesday morning during the Senior-One term. This accomplish¬ ment is commendable. It represents a distinct forward step in student platform work at Girard College. The class play, Shakespeare ' s " Hamlet,” was presented last spring. Its cast included several members of our class. The actors were Gilbert Burleigh a clever villain, Francis Coyle, captain of the guards and a staunch admirer of Hamlet: Max Gross, a meek, obedient messenger; Edgar Orwig, a thick-headed numb-skull of a grave d ' gger; Merril Rex, a young gallant; and Dominic La- tella and Edwin Sherwood, travelling players. It is generally conceded that this was the most successful play ever staged in the Chapel. On the debating team we were represented by Edwin Sherwood and Gilbert Burleigh. The latter served as alternate. After close contests with the George School and Pennington School debaters on the question, “Resolved: That the two per cent quota law should be eliminated from the Immigration Act.” The work of the team was declared praiseworthy. The public speaking of our last term gave every member of the class an opportunity to make a public appearance. Our general presentations in the Chapel on Thursday mornings were of an interesting and novel nature. The conducting of services by members of our class was well done, and the Sunday evening reports were enlightening and well delivered. In the Declamation Contest, five of the six contestants came from our group. Gilbert Burleigh glorified friendship with a very impressive appeal to guard our best associations as precious things and won the first prize offered by the alumni. John Weber presented very persuasive facts to substantiate the statement that “Commercial Aviation is Safe.” Reed McCartney wove a beautiful description of the spirit of Christmas. He told of the miracle of Christ’s birth, its significance, and why we celebrate it today. Martin Mabrey presented a biographical sketch of the life of Russell Conwell. This speech was logical, well balanced, and given in an excellent manner. “Immortal Song,” the title of Edwin Sherwood’s speech, was a glowing tribute to songs that never die. “Eddie” was awarded third prize. Our class has contributed a few sterling presentations on several Monday monrngs during the term. Gilbert Burleigh gave an excellent account of his experiences as a life-guard during the summer, and Martin Mabrey offered a brief survey of the life of Russel Conwell. The final appearance of our class on the stage came in Lady Gregory’s famous one-act play “At the Rising of the Moon.” Burleigh interpreted the 8 Commencement Record leading role of a hunted revolutionist. Coyle acted the part of the policeman. Outwardly, he was a loyalist, but inwardly his heart lay with the cause of Granuaile. Bell and Orwig added a comic touch to the play. ,They represented two honest but ignorant policemen. Husted was responsible for the musical effects, while Sherwood did the back-stage work. The play was very success¬ fully given. As there is probably no extra-curriculum activity as trying mentally as public speaking, it may be readily seen that our class has made the most of the wonderful opportunities offered by our beloved foster-father, Stephen Girard. And here we should like to extend to Mr. Andrews our sincere thanks and appreciation for his untiring efforts in forwarding all our activities in dramatics and public speaking. Mother o’ Mine In grateful recognition and deep appreciation of our mothers and guardians. If I were hanged on the highest hill, Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine! I know whose love would follow me still, Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine! If I were drowned in the deepest sea, Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine! I know whose love would come to me, Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine! If I were damned of body and soul, Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine! I know whose prayers would make me whole, Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine! —Rudyard Kipling. January , 1930 9 School Publications The responsibility of perpetuating Girard College traditions in literary ac¬ tivities has fallen to several members of our class. No small portion of praise has rewarded their efforts. These boys, editors of the Magazine, the News, and the Record, and reporters for the Steel and Garnet, take with them valuable training and experience which could not have been secured in any other way. The interest and enjoyment expressed by the student body constitute a reward that ought to inspire much pleasant anticipation among our succesors. The Girard Magazine, the literary publication of the College, has been very ably managed by Reed L. McCartney, Editor-in-chief, and Philip Egan, Associate Editor. Its new sponsor is Dr. Raymond Haskell. This periodical is one of the best of its type; for pure literary effort it is noteworthy. During their in¬ cumbency the Magazine has been enlarged, it has broadened out until it is more representative of the student body, and it will take on a new color and attractive¬ ness in the spring and summer issues. In the Girard News, improvement in literary form and development in mater¬ ial have been effected. Its publication during these five months was under the guidance of John Scott, Editor-in-chief who was given very able support by William M. Shoucair, News Editor, and Thayer B. Seese, Sports Editor. As the sponsor of this paper, Professor Foust deserves appreciation and commen¬ dation. More and more this paper is securing for itself a place in the minds of the students, and its power is increasing correspondingly. As for the Commencement Record, the estimate of its merit lies with you-. The staff has attempted to make it of intrinsic value to the graduates and attrac¬ tive to other interested in our accomplishments. Any success in this respect may lie attributed to Edwin L. Sherwood, the Editor-in-chief, assisted by McCartney, Coyle, Egan, and Scott. Several members of our class reported for the Steel and Garnet and kept the alumni in touch with the happenings within the College. They were Edwin L. Sherwood and Reed L. McCartney. Music We may bt justly proud of our class in the musical activities of the College. Commencing with the band, we may safely say that under the capable captaincy of Edgar Orwig, solo clarinetist, the band has enjoyed a term of unprecedented improvement. He was ably assisted in his duties by First Lieutenant Harold Davis, leader of the basses and performer on the Sousaphone, and Second Lieutenants David Gray and George Bruce, players of the Sousaphone and drums respectively. The administration of the band was reinforced greatly by the fine cooperation of the non-commissioned officers. Remo DiDonato, a solo clarinetist, has carried out his duties as Supply Sergeant with skill. John Hocking, euphonium soloist, and Malcolm Robertson, clarinetist, were 10 Commencement Record the other sergeants. They fulfilled their duties as befits an officer. Phil Egan, who performed on the French horn, was a sergeant until his S-2 term when he was obliged to give up his music. As corporals, we were represented by Kenneth Lampert, clarinetist, Milton Weber, flute soloist, and John Howell, solo bass. Our showing was widely representative in the orchestra. Carl Husted was the concert-master and leader of the movie orchestra. He was ably assisted by John Mason, head of the bass section, who also performed at the cinema present¬ ations. Charles .Robinson was the head of the trombone section, and a member of the movie orchestra. Playing solo on the oboe, we have Harold Land, who also aided in the Friday evening entertainments. In the bass section David Gray performed creditably on the Sousaphone. A little less than half our entire class were members of the Glee Club and it may be safely said that everyone of them did commendable work. As pres¬ ident of this organization, Edward Phillips is to be congratulated. The vice- president was Carroll Bell. Edwin Sherwood and Harold Davis proved them¬ selves capable librarians. Our class had a solitary member, William Tuttle, in the piano class. This versatile youth performed on the organ during the motion picture performances in cooperation with the movie orchestra. We wish to thank Mr. Frey, Mr. Pfouts, Mr. Cullen, Mr. Carey, and Mr. Banks for their interest and help in developing the accomplished musicians which our class now contains. Probably no hobby or achievement will give us more genuine pleasure and profit in life than the musical education we have received in the College. We are deeply grateful for it. Military Organization January, 1930 has been well represented in the Battalion. This class made an unusually fine showing in the tactics division, and, from the beginning, it has made a record in gaining promotions. Five of our members served as captains in their S-2 terms: John Scott, Company A, Reed McCartney, Company B, William Shoucair, Company C, Robert Rees, Company D, and Horace Frederick, Captain of Staff. Robert Klotz and Albert Strittmatter were lieu¬ tenants during their S-l term, while Merril Dobbins filled a similar post in his S-2 term. Arthur Vandegrift served as Adjutant during his S-l and S-2 terms. Edward Phillips and Thayer Seese were Color Sergeants while they were in J-2 and S-l. Among the sergeants were John Carson, Abraham Hershcovitz, Martin Mabrey, Albert Meyer, Edwin Sherwood, and Gerald Wiessler. A noteworthy incident in the history of our class was the winning of the Single Competitive Drill by Edward Phillips when he was in the 2-1 semester. In January 1930, Captain Robert M. Rees, Company D, won first prize in the Company Competitive Drill, while Captain Reed L. McCartney, Company B, was awarded second prize. January, 1930 II On Sports In this department of College activities the Class of January, 1930, was first represented in swimming. During the winter of 1926-1927 Coyle and Burleigh won their numerals and have received their “G” every year since. Later Mabrey received his numerals and for two years he and Howell have won letters. Bell started out last year with an assistant managership and proved to be the kind of a lad who develops himself through responsibility. He is an able and efficient manager this year. It has been frequently stated that the work of Burleigh, who broke all College records in the breast stroke, and that of Mabrey, Howell, and Coyle, relay and individual swimming stars, have brought to the College the greatest laurels in swimming ever attained with the exception of one previous year’s glory. Our class has made a modest showing on the cinder track. During the season of 1928 “Phil” Egan was our only man to win a letter. In 1929 we made a better showing with Jones, Bruce, Craig, and Frederick winning their letters along with Egan. In baseball Null and Latella captured honors in the summer of 1928 with a letter and a numeral respectively. The last season found Null behind the bat, Latella at third, Seese in the outfield, while Reese, McCausland, Spaulding, Meyer, “Al.” and “Jim” Strittmatter acted as substitutes. Now for the tennis courts. Let us see who’s been out there in the name of January, 1930! Burleigh—numerals in 1928. Singles experts in Hennessey, Campbell, and Bell; Burleigh and Mabrey a double combination bringing credit to the College. All, with the exception of Bell, winning their letters. Among the personnel of the basketball team now having a successful season, we find Latella at right guard and acting captain. Null is at left guard with Seese and Rex competing for center. Land, McCausland, Rees, Vandegrift, Meyer, and J. Strittmatter are doing their part on the squad. The 1929 soccer squad has recorded the names of Latella, captain and star outside right, McCausland, and A. Strittmatter. They won their letters without exception. Among the halfbacks were Reese and Land; they played a strong game. J. Strittmatter played steadily at the first guard position with Sesse and Bruce dividing honors at the goal. Numerals: Vandegrift and Davis—guards. Null—halfback, ’28 and ’29. Members of the squad—Bennett, Carson, Meyer, and Phillips. Since the ruling was made that a manager must be a member of the team and play at least one game, Reed McCartney holds the signal honor of being the first to fulfill these require¬ ments. We congratulate him. 12 Commencement Record Trips No one will ever know how we have enjoyed the trips on which the College has sent us in recent years. First we saw Valley Forge where General Washington and his men spent the terrible winter of 1777-1778 suffering intensely from cold and hunger. This trip gave us a vivid idea of the suffering which many of our forefathers had to endure in order to lay those foundations of government and independence which have afforded us life, liberty, and happiness. The second trip led us to that part of the Girard Estate located in the Shenan¬ doah Valley. On the evening of our arrival at the little mining town of Shenan¬ doah, we attended a motion picture theatre and then retired to the local hotel for the night. Early next morning we enjoyed an interesting walk about the town, had breakfast, and then explored our coal mines. The study of books alone could not give us the conception of the coal industry, its atmosphere, its value to the nation, and its vastness as we saw it there. No American industry can be more interesting. Our last trip took us to the national capital. Space is too brief here to enumerate the details of this valuable experience. In short, we saw the machinery of our government, observed the ruling bodies of the land in action, and visited several outlying, sacred spots as hallowed as the National Cemetery at Arlington. In addition to these pilgrimages, the commissioned officers of the Band and Battalion visited the United States Military Academy at West Point. All reported a pleasant and valuable experience. These trips have afforded an education in itself, a pleasure long to be remem¬ bered, and another occasion for expressing special gratitude to Girard College. Appreciation The Class of January, 1930 wishes to extend its sincere and earnest thanks to the Misses Sigmund, Gleason, and North, and the Messrs. Nettleton, Carey, and Stratton, our hostesses and hosts respectively on many occasions, for the keen interest they have taken in our affairs and the fine work they have done in our behalf. We sincerely hope that this parting is not’ a permanent one. It is our earnest desire to continue these pleasant relationships with them during many future years. “Someday, somewhere, we’ll meet again, Then the whole world will echo and sigh. Mountains, rivers, divide us, but then Someday, we’ll meet again.” January, 1930 13 The Passing Years With apologies to Gray, Holmes, Longfellow , Bailey, and Shakespeare whose writings are a living inspiration. Now fades the glimmering landscape on the sight. The gradual dusky veil draws softly o’er us; The lengthening shadows wait the first pale stars of twilight. Now disappears the orbid continent, The living fire that severs night from day; Blossom the lovely stars, the scriptures of the angels’ firmament. Thus passes youth at Father Time’s haloo; Passes astride the mighty blasts of mortal storms Into dawn, into an existence that is new. —Edwin L. Sherwood, S-2-2. 14 Commencement Record Farewell Song Sixteen hundred looking on, we are in the van; We have run our marathon from child to growing man. Out beyond the open gate lights of promise glow, You, who cheered us when we came, bless us ere we go. We shall miss the daily round, victory at ball; Miss the gay parade, and miss classmates most of all. Only love illumes the years, brothers, pass it on, Light the torch and spread the flame ’till the years be gone. Sixteen hundred looking on, follow, follow hard, Fight the game, increase her fame, good-bye to old Girard. There’s a world of worth beyond, soldiers must not lag, Where good fortune waits for us, ’neath the starry flag. Farewell! Farewell! Dear temple on the hill; We’ll not forget you ’till our hearts be still. —Henry Hanby Hay. January, 1930 15 HOWARD CARROLL BELL “Pickle” Reading, Pa.

We gather our belongings, pack our outfit— precious books and all—and walk slowly to meet him. Tears come as we pause to take one last look at our beloved home and school; but this cannot be. We must go out and make our marks in the world. We leave humbly—not as conquerors. We leave determined to work hard, to behave well, to do the best with every opportunity that arises, and to improve ourselves as we go on hoping and striving for great responsibilities. The chief possession of our class may be our spirit. We are fresh, trim, eager, and resolved that “God’s in his Heaven— All’s right with the world!” Eight or nine years ago the majority of our class entered Girard. We were then striplings unaware of responsibility. Everything was new and strange. It took patience on the part of our instructors to mould us into the patterns desired. Gradually the time came when the strong could be discerned from the weak. During the process of elimination which naturally followed, our class was thin¬ ned out to what it is at the present time, the cream of the crop. We will for that reason be constantly watched by those left behind. There¬ fore, we must enter into our new existence with the thought of carrying on the work of those great men who have gone before, with a zeal worthy of their praise. We have striven to attain or surpass marks set by other classes. Whether we have or not is for our mentors and friends, the Faculty, to decide. Ever since we entered Girard, the Faculty has been with us, guiding, molding, counselling, and encouraging. They did all that was in their power to understand us, and to lend assistance whenever possible. To them belongs a large measure of the credit for having made us what we are and what we are to be. The lion’s share of credit, though, belongs to our mothers and guardians. We always, in our upward climb, had a vision tucked away in the inner fastnesses of our minds of those who would be waiting to receive us triumphantly at the end. We knew their hearts would be broken if we did not succeed. That vision has been a constant beacon light. It has drawn us onward. We pay tribute to them now. We cherish our childhood scenes. We shall strive to compensate those who took part in creating them by proving ourselves worthy of what has been done for us. Let us climb earnestly upward, surmounting all obstacles, aiming unceas¬ ingly for success by service to others. Who without that ideal is worthy of the name Girard? Until we reach that goal, we cannot pay our debts to Stephen Girard, our mothers, guardians, and humanity. 4 Commencement Record CLASS ADMINISTRATION J-i Marcus Dale George Hoagland Gerard M.

Hoagland Class Socials Commencement Record Till the stars grow dim we’ll dance.—Proctor. O UR CLASS SOCIALS were undoubtedly the form of entertainment from which we derived the greatest pleasure and enjoyment during the last two years in Girard College. The absolute success of these social evenings was caused in a large part by the genuine interest taken by the various hosts and hostesses who served us in planning and guiding these affairs. Now that the last, faint, lingering strain of music has faded away, we wish to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to all those who assisted in making them so enjoyable. Our first social was held on January 11, 1929, and proved to be one of the incidents in our lives at Girard to which we shall always look back with pleasure. The music started at exactly eight o’clock, and until the close of the evening every¬ one was in high spirits. During the intermission, Fred Lane and Joseph Gualtieri entertained those present by singing a few popular songs. They did their part in a very creditable manner; so well, in fact, that at the next social they were again requested to serve us in the capacity of vocal entertainers. All too quickly the dance was over. With varied feelings of regret that the first social was past, and with anticipation for the next to come, we took ourselves away from the scene of revelry. As we returned to our regular duties the next day, it seemed that our Junior- Two Social was far away; nevertheless, almost before we realized it, May 1929, the evening of our second class social arrived. At this dance, many novelties were introduced which proved to be the source of much merrymaking and enjoy¬ ment for ours and subsequent class socials. Besides the amusement furnished by the pair present at the first dance, we were entertained by Joe Sbaragba and Jerry Terlingo, who illustrated a dance which was all their own. Needless to say, all reveled in the pleasure and entertainment that was ours for the night. It was the Senior-One party that was unanimously agreed to be the best of the three in which our class had so far participated. It was held on November 22. 1929. At this dance, during the intermission, we were amused by a male quartet composed of members of our class who sang some popular songs in a very success¬ ful manner. We desire, at this time, to extend our congratulations and thanks to all who took part in the entertainment at our class socials. The Senior-Two social was a very fitting accompaniment to our last term in Girard. It served to make even more firm the bonds of friendship that had so long united us. The affair was not only enjoyable, it was exceedingly beneficial. The planning and anticipation of this event created a sincere spirit of cooperation in us. It pervaded every member of the class, and before the dance w s well under way, all who were physically capable of attending were present. “Happiness, 1 guess, is just a memory.” So it seemed to us, as we came to the realization that our last class social was over; nevertheless, despite the fact that we never again June, 1930 7 shall be able to enjoy together, as students of Girard, the entertainment that we derived from these affairs, we shall always be capable of fondly remembering them. Joys too exquisite to last; Yet more exquisite when past.—Montgomery. Our Trips EEING without feeling has little value. If our trips to Valley Forge, Wash¬ ington, and Shenandoah had been taken for the sole purpose of sight-seeing, their worth would have been but little. We went, rather, to catch the spirit of the place, that our lives might be enriched by the experience. Everyone knows that at Valley Forge such and such a cross marks the spot where this or that general stood; everyone knows that one or another building in Washington is located here or there; and everyone knows too that so many tons of coal are mined in Shenandoah each year. So when the boys went to Valley Forge they did not know just what to expect. What they found there is hard to explain. It is hard to explain because it is not tangible; it is something that reaches those small, obscure corners of the heart of every red-blooded American; that feeling of reverence and respect for those shabbily-clad men who made it possible for us to stand on those beautiful hills and feel tingling in our veins the thrill of Liberty. Similarly, in Washington, when we walked her many streets and viewed her buildings and memorials, there seemed to grow in the mind of every boy a dim picture of what Washington and our country used to be, a clearer picture of what Washington and our country are now; and then above all, a vivid image of what we, as good citizens of these United States, should strive to make of our glorious country in the future. And, of course, we need not worry about forgetting that wonderful trip to our own Girard E state in the Shenandoah Valley for what we saw there and learned there has been stamped upon our minds with such clearness and beauty that it will take more than time to wipe it out. It was there that we saw a busy world at work—mines, the breakers, factories—all living symbols of progress. Many members of June 1930 may walk up and down the steps of the Capitol as hardened, solemn senators, or may work as engineers in or about Shenandoah,or revisit Valley Forge; but no matter how many times they visit these places or how long they stay they will never feel that same thrill which they experienced when they saw, for the first time, these hallowed places. 8 Commencement Record Sports I N the way of sports, June 1930 started early, and as a result, established a creditable record for themselves, having thirty-five letter men. Iskierski leads the class, having won the first “G” in the swimming season of 1928, and a letter for this sport every year since. In 1929, Schuck, Bramble, and Gualtieri also won letters in swimming along with Iskierski, and duplicated the feat in the season of 1930. The class has been very successful in basketball. Kerstetter started this activity for us by winning his letter in 1929. At the same time, Dale, Hoagland, Morris, A. Moore, and Terlingo were awarded their numerals. Then, in 1930, the boys put forth a great fight, and as a result nine were presented with the coveted “G”, while two earned numerals. Captain Al. Moore, Morris, Lane, Kerstetter, Hoagland, McCormick, Terlingo, Liebig, and Duffy were those who received their “G”s while Crawford and Powers were presented with numerals. In 1928 Kerstetter received his numerals in soccer, and the following year letters were awarded to Morris, Iskierski, A. Moore, Saul, Terlingo, Lane, Ciav- arelli, Kerstetter and Sbaraglia. Wyncoop was given numerals.. For the past year, all of our teams have been very ably managed. Hauber managed basketball; Winston, baseball; Turner, swimming; and Stem, track. For this valuable service, each has been presented with a letter. Credit must be given to the three cheer-leaders, R. Moore, Keown, and Gladfelter, who did so much to “pep up’’ and invigorate the team by their praise¬ worthy cheering. For this they too, were awarded “G’s.” Captain Ed. Morris, Al. Moore, Lane, Hauber, Crawford, Terlingo, Hoag¬ land, Bramble, and McCormick for their hard fighting in baseball this year received their “G’s.” Numerals were given to Dale, Kerstetter, Blunt, Powers, Buehl, and Higgins. Letters were also presented to Al. Moore, Morris, Lane, and Hoagland in 1929. At the same time, Crawford, Gualtieri, Dale, Terlingo, Buehl, Kerstetter, and Hauber won numerals. Al. Moore and Hoagland earned numerals back in 1928. In the 1930 track team we have Captain Tinkleman, Dugan, P. Foreman, Hoskins, Saul, Wyncoop, Iskierski, and Bramble, all of whom have earned letters. This is the third with which Tinkleman has been presented. Bramble, L ' ebig, Wyncoop, and Iskierski have two to their credit in this sport. Feldman and Roan, our sole stars in tennis, gained the varsity emblem for such. These two and Ciavarelli have also been members of the squads in previous years. June, 1930 9 School Publications T HE Class of June 1930 has literary talent revealed in a number of its members. These students, as an outlet for their activity, were chosen to represent the Class on the Girard Magazine, the Girard Nczvs, the Steel and Garnet, and the Commencement Record. They have striven to set a standard in these literary and journalistic organs which will give younger classes pride in attaining. The unit that expresses the literary thought of the whole school, the Maga¬ zine, was ably guided this last term by Harvey E. Stoehr, Editor-in-Chief, and his associate, Charles F. Schuck. These two piloted the Magazine into channels of endeavor hitherto unattained while Dr. Haskell gave excellent counsel. The task of making the News as appealing as possible fell to the genius of C. Cheyney Brown, Editor-in-Chief, Thomas E. Bramble, News Editor, and William H. Gladfelter, Sports Editor. Under their management, and Professor Foust’s supervision, the News did its best to become a medium of helpful influ¬ ence and bearer of news for the students and the faculty. Through their efforts the News will probably appear later with the improvements that they strove to effect. Gerald Smith and William E. Kerstetter represented the Class as corres¬ pondents to the Steel and Garnet, our alumni publication. The latter was mater¬ ially aided by the valuable contributions of these two members of June 1930. As for the Commencement Record, that publication dealing exclusively with the achievements of the Class of June 1930, the Class selected those who they thought were best fitted for planning this book. Those so honored by the Class’ approval were Thomas E. Bramble, Editor-in-Chief, and his associates, C. Chey¬ ney Brown, William H. Gladfelter, William E. Kerstetter, and Gerald Smith. The Record is an honest account of our activities during our stay in Girard. The members of the staff have done their best to show that the June 1930 class has an enviable record. Musical Achievements T HE Class of June 1930 was fairly well represented in musical activities during its stay at Girard. It can justly be proud of having made a creditable record in the Band, Orchestra, Theatre Orchestra, and Glee Club. The band was ably captained this past term by Marcus R. Dale who was also head of the trombone section. Harry Dugan, Assistant Leader, played the clarinet in the same row with William Bonsall, Second Lieutenant, and George Lewis. Keeve Winston, saxophonist, Bertolet Rickenbach, a capable drummer, and Douglas Wright, bassoon player, complete our representation in the Band. 10 Commencement Record In the Orchestra we were similarly well represented. Elmer Roan, first vio¬ linist and Leader, Harvey Stoehr and Delbert Wilson, first violinists, concert- master and assistant concertmaster respectively, assumed able leadership. Wil¬ bert Hyneman, manager and trombonist, and William Kieme who played the French horn, complete our identification with the Orchestra. Several members of the Band and Orchestra from our class helped instru- mentally in making the Theatre Orchestra the success it is today. They are Elmer Roan, Leader, Wilbert Hyneman, Delbert Wilson, William Kieme, Harry Dugan, and Harvey Stoehr. Partly through their efforts, this Orchestra has come to be an accepted and dignified institution in Girard College. As for the Glee Club, that organization representing the best male voices of the students, the Class of June 1930 can boast twenty-nine members, or slightly more than one-third of the entire number of seventy-five. The members of our class are: First tenor—Harry Dugan, George Hoagland, Edward Turner, William Bonsall, Joseph Gualtieri, Robert Lloyd, Albert Moore, Vice-President, Elmer Roan, Charles Schuck, and Harry Stem. Second tenor— William Gladfelter, George Lewis, Gerard Terlingo, and Delbert Wilson. Baritone—Robert Buehl, Maldwyn Jones, William Kerstetter, Librarian, Marcus Dale, President, Joseph Duffy, Fred Lane, and Joseph Sbaraglia. Bass—Thomas Bramble, Librarian, Cheyney Brown, Victor Hauber, Wilbert Hyneman, James McCormick, Howard Hoskins, Eugene Saul, and Douglas Wright. To those who made our success in musical endeavor possible, we wish to ex¬ tend our most sincere thanks and appreciation for what they have done. We have in mind Mr. George O. Frey, Head of the Department of Instrumental Music, Mr. Earl Pfouts, Violin Instructor, Mr. Edward Cullen, Band Instructor, Mr. Bruce A. Carey, Director of the Glee Club, and Mr. Harry C. Banks, Jr., Organist. Appreciation T HE Class of June 1930 wishes to express its sincere and hearty approval to Misses Smythe and Keech, Messrs. Jarrard, Stewart and Patched, our hostesses and hosts, for the keen interest they have taken in the class. The success of the class’ social affairs was in no small part due to the em¬ phatic and spirited cooperation of these hosts and hostesses. We especially want to thank Mr. Jarrard, who, though handicapped by his long illness has done much for the class, and has established a friendship which will long endure in the hearts of the boys. We sincerely hope that our parting will not sever the bonds of our priceless friendships with those with whom we have come into such close and pleasant contact. June, 1930 11 Behind the Footlights A LL the world’s a stage,” said Shakespeare, and, as far as our class is con¬ cerned, quite a bit of our world was a stage. We cannot boast a Garrick or an Arliss, but we may comfort ourselves in the fact that from first to last every member of June 1930 did his level best to boost the standard of public presentations set by preceding classes. As is generally the case, the class play was the most outstanding accomplish¬ ment of the year. It was a departure from the usual, as plays go at Girard, for the plot wove itself around characters of a modern type, rather than those of people who lived centuries ago such as Shakespeare or Rostand portrayed. The play, “The Admirable Crichton,” was written by a contemporary author, James M. Barrie. Thomas Bramble took the role of Crichton, the butler. This seemed a rather innocent part, and so it was until near the climax of the performance when Crichton came to the front, while Lord Loam, in the person of Robert Lloyd, head of an English family, drifted into obscurity. He was not alone in this, however. To understand this comedy one must know that this particular English house¬ hold, with Lord Loam at its head, once a month changed places socially with the servants. After one of these changes they decided to go for a sea voyage, and before they knew it they were wrecked and marooned on a desert island. The relationships on the island soon developed into those comically assumed back in dear old England, Crichton taking the lead. Then they were discovered and rescued, and each awkwardly fell back into his old position. Curtain. Among the ones who were taken down a few rungs on the social ladder by Crichton while on the island were Ernest, Lady Mary and Lady Catherine; while Tweeny, formerly a servant, became very important socially as did Crichton. Joseph Gualtieri gave a most comical interpretation of Ernest, while Fred Lane took the part of Lady Mary, and Joseph Ciavarelli, that of Tweeny. Then, too, there was Eugene Saul, playing the part of Treherne, a clergyman, who was to be found with the family both in England and on the island. Joseph Duffy, impersonated Lady Brocklehurst, mother of Lord Brocklehurst who like Ernest was a jolly old Englishman. Then, last but not least, the roles of servants were very ably filled by Elmer Roan, Monsieur Fleuri, a chef, William Scheib, a foot¬ man, Joseph Sbaraglia, a stable boy, John Hrom, a coachman, and Howard Higgins, a maid. Despite its complexities, the play was given in a first-class manner. Here we should like to extend to the class of January 1931, full appre¬ ciation for their cooperation in making this play a success. The debating team also came through with flying colors. The debate with George School was the fifth of a series of debates yith our friendly opponents and, both schools have taken two decisions, the discussion was both interesting and exciting. Girard’s winning team consisted of four members of our class: Meyer Feldman, Captain, William Gladfelter, Joseph Gualtieri, and John Hrom, serving as alternate. 12 Commencement Record Although we were represented by only one classmate in the declamation con¬ test, Thomas Bramble took second prize on a subject which, as far as our class went in presenting candidates for the final contest, was quite appropriate: “The Man Who Stands Alone.” In speaking of public appearances, we must not forget the fine showing our French students made in the play “Joan of Arc” given on a Monday morning under the direction of Miss Frey, our French teacher. The play was unique. It was made up of a rather small cast: Charles Liebig acted as Joan of Arc, Joseph Gualtieri was an English soldier, Gerard Terlingo and Meyer Feldman appeared as two French soldiers, and Joseph Ciavarelli, a French flowergirl. Then, too, there were several activities in which the whole class participated. Every member made at least his debut before the public, and each in turn did very well. We must not forget, too, the good work done by those twelve class¬ mates who were chosen from volunteers to give Sunday evening reports. Mr. Andrews may be assured of the deepest appreciation and most sincere thanks from the Senior Class since all know that it was he who made these suc¬ cesses possible. Military Organization T HE Class of June 1930 has been very well represented in the Girard College Battalion. During the past several months four members of the class have served as company captains and one became Captain of Staff. Gerald Smith captained Company A; Edward Turner, Company C; and Thomas Bramble. Com¬ pany D. Victor Hauber was Captain of Staff. The following lieutenants in the class gave a good account of themselves: Charles Meisky, Robert Iskierski, Charles Schuck, and Ralph Powers. Adjutant— George Hoagland. Sergeant-Major—Joseph Gualtieri. Sergeant-Major of the Staff—Raymond Moore. Color Sergeants—William Scheib and William Ker- stetter. Quartermaster—Maldwyn Jones. Supply Sergeant—Joseph Ciaverelli. In addition to this representation several other members of the class have been sergeants at one time or another during their service in the Battalion. Among them are Paul Foreman, Thomas Hake, Howard Hoskins, Bernard Tinkleman, James McCormick, Robert Buehl, Cheyney Brown, Wilford Scott, Albert Moore, and Edward Morris. A signal honor which the recipient deserved well went to Robert Lloyd who received a medal for proficiency in the single competitive drill two consecutive terms. May the drills of life prove that he possesses the same merit in meeting their requirement too. And so the Class of June 1930 receives honorable discharge from the Girard College Battalion.
