MINTER, Editor-in-chief PHILLIP D. EVANS CARL B. ZOERNER ALFRED W. ESTILL WALTER PFIZENMAYER WILLARD M. ZURFLIEH The Girard College Press January, 1932 3 r-rrr- ——--- - —-—i We’ll be True T HERE are many subjects that might be written upon in the editorial of a class book, especially when a group of students has the heritage of Girard College training, but in the foreground of our experience we can see only Stephen Girard just now. We shall remember him with a love and pride. That memory, however, will remain inseparable with the Old Chapel. The Old Chapel became to us who have spent nine years within its sacred walls a shrine—a symbol of the Girard spirit. Its Gothic lines trailed ivy up grey walls to a stately tower which never ceased to stand a sentinel-of-the-night watching faithfully over the Girard family. Each hard wooden bench inside kept us wide awake to the stern lessons of life—love, toil, loyalty, frankness, and character. How directly the Founder sent home the real Values of spiritual living through the atmosphere and activities of this sacred place! It was here that our class was raised. It was here that we sang our hallelujahs and glee club choruses. Here we acted our plays, recited our Thursday morning pieces and listened to inspiring concerts and eloquent speakers. We have filed from its doors with the keen realization that if we did not become good men Girard College should never be blamed. It gave us all that religion, example, and nobility could offer in a chapel. Now the outer gate swings wide for our last departure. Will it be to col¬ lege or to work? Where? Well, wherever the course of life leads us, let us pause daily to thank God for the friendships, the lessons, and the dear scenes of Chapel hours. With these ever before us, our love for Stephen Girard can never die; our lives can never cease to be enriched and useful; our well-founded training will serve us rightly. Now our deeds must be our lives. We will be true to the Old Chapel. And it must follozv, as the night the day. We const not then be false to any man. Girard Hymn Girard! thy mystic spirit calls To happy youth in college halls. And like a silent blessing falls To hallow evermore. From out the old, familiar bower High in the ivy-covered tower. The chapel chimes peal forth the hour As in the days of yore. Sweet memories of bygone days! Let all in song their voices raise; O, dear Girard, We sing thy praise With reverence and love. Our grateful thanks We give to thee For childhood ' s opportunity To live and learn. O may there be Rich blessings from above. Keep us with all our hopes and fears. Fill us with faith that lifts and cheers. Lead and direct us through the years — Be thou our guide and guard. Teach us. We pray, the things to do That make for manhood strong and true — Strengthen our hearts, our love renew; Cod bless our dear Girard. —Harold Barnes. January, 1932 5 In Public Speaking “Voice—the immortal instrument of God.’ UBLIC SPEAKING has always interested us. You know, it is a wonder¬ ful thing to be able to make your voice move anyone, and it is greater still to move the people you know and like. Our first public appearance was made by Lloyd Minter in 2-2. At that time he read his Thrift Essay before the high school group. It broke the ice, and afterwards the class was more willing to appear in public. Our next showing was in J-2 when our class represented two novels in character form —The House of Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne, and A Talc of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. There were two interlocutors, one for each story—Lloyd Minter for The House of Seven Gables, and Olimpio Napoliello for A Tale of Two Cities. As the stories were told, the characters entered and took their places in the settings of the novel. They enjoyed it and it keyed them up for future work in expression. During the S-l semester the annual Dramatic Club play was given. Natu¬ rally, the Senior-two class had the edge on their younger brothers, but three of our members made that coveted goal of all youthful stage aspirants. In a thrill¬ ing dramatization by our own Mr. Henry V. Andrews of Stevenson’s Dr. Jckyll and Mr. Hyde, Lloyd Minter had the good luck to become Mr. Utterson, Jekyll’s lawyer and lifelong friend. Harold Pipp, as Dr. Lanyon’s office boy, did a piece of acting more than splendid in its realism. Our only other successful contestant was Harold Williamson who played the part of Dr. Lanyon’s assistant. His able acting and his professional air of being a doctor’s assistant will remain a happy memory. It was a great emotional experience made possible by Mr. Andrews; and, after all, it gave joy to all who love classic forms of the drama. As president of the Dramatic Club in S-2, Harold Williamson is to be thanked for his work in putting on the annual Christmas play entitled Don Juan’s Christ¬ mas Eve. The other members of the club who were in the play and the club were William Schatzel, Albert Bell, Ludwig Soherr, John Whittick, and Harold Pipp. And perhaps it would be well to mention here that John Whittick and Ludwig Soherr as make-up assistants for most of our dramatic presentations should be thanked for putting their shoulders so willingly to the wheel. Ludwig Soherr, John Whittick, Willard Zurflieh and Olimpio Napoliello, captain, were our representatives in S-l in a debate against the Senior-two class. The question was Resolved: That Old Age Pension Laws Should be Enacted in all the States. We, the affirmative, won! The audience was convinced. The class was jubilant! As a matter of course, we all gave Friday morning talks which were interesting and new in that they were about the things we were interested in or had written about. They served as excellent practice in the kind of speaking everyone has to do sooner or later. 6 Class Record A number of the members of the class also gave Sunday evening reports in conjunction with Bible study. In S-2 we had four of the six representatives in the Declamation Contest. Olimpio Napoliello gave a touching picture of the influence of the old Chapel in his life. Willard Zurflieh gave a vivid description of city streets as he knows them and loves them, and of his love for the city. Following this, Ludwig Soherr talked of his fondness for Germany, the land that gave him his parents. The last speaker was Lloyd Minter who talked about his ideal of a dad and his idea of becoming a good one himself. Among the three who won, however, Olimpio Napoliello received first prize. All the contestants did so well that the matter of prize-winning in itself became quite unimportant. The contest, as a whole, was considered unique in originality in the history of the College. Time is drawing to a close. There is only one more event—Commencement. To represent our talent in this event, we shall hear Carl Zoerner, our first honor man, deliver the valedictory address entitled We’ll Remember. Our second honor man, Lloyd Minter, will deliver the salutatory and an address; and finally our class speaker, Olimpio Napoliello, whom the faculty thought represented us best in public speaking will speak on Have Faith in the Present. Not without a word of heartfelt thanks to Mr. Henry V. Andrews, our director and coach, most of all our friend, do we close this episode and wish him good luck in all his further stage enterprises among Girardians. All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players. In Music “For song hath ever paid its way.” UR first attempts in music were in the piano class. Philip Evans started to play while a young boy and continued his studies on the organ and piano as far as J-2. In 2-1 he won a first prize at the piano. Now he is the class entertainer. For a while Albert Bell played the piano and at one time won a second prize for proficiency on that instrument. A debt of gratitude is due Mr. Banks for his efforts in their behalf. Perhaps our strongest showing in the Instrumental Music Department was in the orchestra. Among the youngest to join this organization was Anthony Alfe who played all three violin positions and, in S-2, became first violinist, con- certmaster, and leader of that group. He did a wonderful job in these position, and we extend to him our congratulations and thanks for the pleasure he gave us. Next in this group comes Harold Williamson, who played contrebass for four years, and who in his fourth year as leader of his section became the assist¬ ant-leader of the orchestra. We congratulate him too. Two of our members were in the orchestra until their S-l year. They January. 1932 7 are Edward Pryjomski and Harry Smith. They played the viola and bassoon respectively. Playing in the drum section we find John Young who was in the orchestra from 2-1 to S-l. His handling of the traps was much enjoyed and appreciated by all. Another violinist, Albert Krupp, connected himself with this organization in 2-2 and continued until S-2 when he became assistant-manager. Two other members of the class were in the orchestra for only one term and served adntirably as good “pinch-hitters.” They were Warren Whiteoak, trom¬ bonist, and Carl Gessner, clarinetist. While they were rather young, Anthony Alfe, Albert Krupp, and Edward Pryjomski played in the string section of the Movie Orchestra. Carl Gessner and Harry Smith played their respective instruments in it also. And last but not least, John Young played the traps and gave us the noise effects before the advent of the talking picture. They filled a needed place in their time and we missed them when they were gone. In the band we were also fairly well represented: The oldest member was Warren Whiteoak, who held membership from 7B to S-2 except for one term. In his S-2 year he became the captain and leader of that organization. He did well and hereby receives our commendation. We are like the Germans: we love a military band, and this year’s work pleased us. The next two most faith¬ ful members were Kenneth Craver, saxophonist, and Lloyd Minter, drummer, who remained in the band from 7B to S-l. A few of the members were migra¬ tory. Carl Gessner played in it from 7B to J-2 and then went to the orchestra for his S-l term. John Young was a drummer from 7A to 1-2 and then he too went to the orchestra. During his S-l and S-2 terms, Harold Williamson wielded the drum-major’s baton with such dexterity that he left a picture in our memory never-to-be-for¬ gotten as he w ' alked in front of the band. Our greatest showing in the musical life of Girard was in the Glee Club. Here we were represented by twenty-six boys. Most of them had been in the Junior Hundred in their youth and served the full term in the Glee Club front J-2 to S-2 inclusive. Others didn’t, but their ever-ready aid in the last few months was felt and appreciated. Those who served for a year and a half were, in the tenor sections, Robert Banks, Albert Bell, Sidney Gersh, John Gibney, the president in S-2, John Keger- reis, Lidio Mignogna, Harold Williamson, William Walton, the vice-president in S-2, and Willard Zurflieh; and in the bass sections, Anthony Alfe, Kenneth Craver, Alfred Estill, Philip Evans, Carl Gessner, Gene Harvey, Joseph ' McGinley, Lloyd Minter, Olimpio Napoliello, Edward Pryjomski, Harold Reilly, and Harry Smith. Among those with us for only a year or less were Harry Evans, Leonard Greene, and Ward Winning in the tenor sections, and George Howard and Warren Whiteoak in the bass sections. 8 Class Record They all regret leaving the club and, most of all, their friends Messrs. Bruce Carey, director, and Harry C. Banks, accompanist. A word more and that is all. We must pay tribute to two of our class members who have made our times a little more enjoyable with their music: Messrs. Anthony Barbaro and Edward Pryjomski, instrumentalists. To those gentlemen who led us through our musical life, and who have led others through the same experience to gain a greater happiness, Messrs. George O. Frey, Bruce Carey, Harry C. Banks, Jr., Earl Pfouts, and Edward B. Cullen we extend our deepest gratitude. “Music, when soft voices die... Lingers in the memory. Melodies, when Time has gone, Live within the souls of friends..” In Athletics I N the broad field of Girard College sports, our class has shown a keen and active interest. Bill Blair leads the class in the number of letters earned with four to his credit. For two years, 1929 and 1930, he was the mainstay of the Girard tennis team, and Captain of it in 1930. Anthony Alfe and Kenneth Craver also received their letters in this sport the same year. In swimming, our class was modestly represented by George Ehrich and Leonard Greene who won their numerals in 1930. Ludwig Soherr earned his letter the same season, and in 1931 captained the Girard natators. Alfred Estill served as manager of the team in 1931 and received his letter. Eight members of our class were on the 1931 baseball squad. They are William Black, Edward Bushnell, Kenneth Craver, Sidney Gersh, George How¬ ard, John Kegerreis, Joseph McGinley, and Walter Zondler. All these men with the exception of Kegerreis, Gersh, and Craver won their numerals while the first three earned the coveted “G.” On the cinder-path, and on the field, our class has an enviable record. Rob¬ ert Banks, Harry Evans, Carl Gessner, William Gibney, Alfred Moscariello, Walter Pfizenmayer, and Warren Whiteoak won their letters in the 1931 cam¬ paign. In the same year, Anthony Barbaro and Lidio Mignogna received their numerals. Soccer proved to be the sport in which our class w as best represented. Walter Zondler, right-end and captain led the team through a successful season marred only by one defeat. William Walton and Harold Williamson were co¬ workers of Zondler on the forward line. John Kegerreis was regular right-full¬ back for two seasons, and William Gibney varsity goal-tender. The substitutes, Olimpio Napoliello, Edward Bushnell, Sidney Gersh, George Howard, Joseph McGinley, Lidio Mignogna, Alfred Moscariello, Walter Pfizenmayer, Robert Whittick, and Carl Zoemer were constant threats to the holders of regular berths. All these men won their letters. James Egan was the capable playing- January, 1932 9 manager of the team, and for his efforts in this line he was awarded a letter. Leonard Greene is now a wearer of the “’32” by virtue of his work as assistant manager. On th e basketball court, our class was represented by nine members. Wil¬ liam Walton, Sidney Gersh, Joseph McGinley, Lidio Mignogna, Walter Pfizen- mayer, and Carl Zoerner all received their numerals in 1930. Robert Wh ' ittick served as assistant manager and also won his numerals. William Blair, Walter Zondler, and William Gibney received their letters for their work in the same season. Among the members of our class who were on the Gym. Team are Willard Zurflieh, Pasquale Spinelli, Robert Banks, Anthony Barbaro, and Alfred Estill. Barbaro and Zurflieh received their letters and the others won their numerals in 1930. Robert Whittick, William Black, Frank Di Meo, and Harold Pipp received letters for acting as athletic officials. The class of January 1932 wishes to take this opportunity to express their thanks and appreciation to the coaching staff at Girard—Messrs. Otto, Brayer- ton, Dunlevy, and Groff, who gave their heartiest support and interest to the athletic program of our class. Our Socials N OW the last slowly-fading strains of music have passed away as thoughts in a dream and our social evenings at Girard have come to an end. We can only look back upon memories cherished by us as schoolday delecta¬ tions gone but always to be remembered. For many weeks the members of the class planned the J-l dance and on May 9, 1930, the anticipation of it reached its culmination. It was the first social, and everyone was anxious and excited. At eight o’clock the guests began to arrive, and the musicians started their unending duty of the evening—to help provide our entertainment. Soon the entire floor was filled with gay, gliding couples. A “dummy” dance presented the unique feature of the affair. This was performed with “Arrfos Jones” and “Ruby Taylor” as the “dumimies.” Almost everyone had a chance to dance with either one or the other of these characters that evening. After the good-nights had been said, our first social became a fond mem¬ ory and the next one seemed a long way off. Incidentally we had chosen Miss Miller, Mr. Carey, Mr. Otto and Mr. Joll as hostess and hosts respectively to help in making our debut. As all upper classmen know, after the first social there is alWays a linger¬ ing conversation about this event for many days following. Our class was no exception, and the members enjoyed this aftermath wholeheartedly. We had no sooner finished discussing the J-l dance than we began to look forward with eager anticipation toward the J-2 affair which was to be held in December. 10 Class Record Christmas! Everything seemed to point towards a merry one on Friday evening, December 12, 1930, as we were about to enjoy our second dance. The spirit of the Yuletide season was spontaneous. Upon entering the decorated room the guests came under its spell. Festoons of green hung from the lights. Red and green streamed from the center light to distant points of the room. Icicles and bells displayed on the walls added to the prevailing atmosphere. On one side of the dance hall was a cozy fireplace in wihich an imitation Yule log guarded by two Christmas trees was burning. The trees were bedecked with many vari-colored balls and other ornaments. A floodlight cast its piercing beam upon the trees reflect¬ ing all the hues of a rainbow. Cotton on the windows suggested falling snow and added to the charm and beauty of the occasion. The music started promptly, and the floor was soon alive with gay couples. During the earlier part of the evening a “dummy” dance was again held. Lloyd Minter dressed as Santa Claus came into the room with two small dummies representing the domestic side of the Christmas saint. Mr. Santa was given to a girl and Mrs. Santa to a boy. Those who received the dummies were obliged to dance with them. When the whistle blew, the possessors of the dummies were given booby prizes. Confetti here, confetti there, confetti everywhere! White confetti was used instead of the usual colored sort, and the room soon assumed the appear¬ ance of a mid-winter snow storm. Many a couple received a well-directed shower of this “snow.” Thus another class social went into the dim past and alert minds looked ahead to the forthcoming March. Amid unusually delightful decorations we held our S-l dance on March 13, 1931. The spirit and light heartedness which pervaded this would have led a spectator to believe that each one of the dancers was a true son or daughter of old Ireland. The decorations, as well as the spirit of the dancers, reflected the Emerald Isle. Green and white streamers hid the ceiling. The large, green harps and shamrocks which adorned the walls would have warmed the heart of any true Irishman. A huge green “brogue” in one corner gave just the last touch of gaiety. As usual, the gowns of the ladies furnished the necessary contrast in the color scheme. It was one time, however, when the gentlemen were not to be outdone in originality and taste by their partners, and the number of green handkerchiefs and ties on display attested to their knowledge of proper color- harmony in dress and in their sense of what is appropriate for the occasion. After the confetti dance and the moonlight waltzes two-score and six tired but happy couples walked slowly to the Lodge to say good-night. Thus another occasion slipped by. Perhaps the most enjoyable of all our socials was the last!—the S-2 dance. On October 8, 1931, our class opened the fall season. Instead of arrang¬ ing streamers about the room, the decorators centered their efforts on pro¬ ducing an atmosphere of autumn. Along one side of the hall there were shocks of corn with their yellow ears exposed. To add to the effect, a number of small January, 1932 II animals suggestive of the hunting season were placed among the shocks. The fantastic figure of a scarecrow, smiling blandly with arms wide-spread, ex¬ tended to all best wishes for the evening. All too soon the strains of the moonlight waltz brought the finale, and we began to realize that the last social was over. To all those who so kindly helped us, our hostesses and hosts, teachers and others, we extend our thanks, and ask to be counted among their friends. The pleasant associations formed at our socials will long be cherished among us. It is with a feeling of regret that we give thought to the fact that we shall never attend another class social in Girard College. School Publications T HE Girard College literary activities have been kept intact and in flourishing condition by certain members of this class during the last year. The Girard Magazine, The News, correspondence with the Steel and Garnet, and the Class Record have been outlets for our work. Like our predecessors, we have tried to maintain or improve the high standards set by previous classes. In journalism, Alfred W. Estill, as Editor-in- Chief, led his staff through a successful term of gathering and publishing the news of the College. As News Editor, Olimpio Napoliello was conspicuous in his effort to bring to the front newls interesting to all. Philip Evans, Sports Editor, kept the literary ball in play and made eveiry report interesting. Carl Zoerner served as president of the Literary Club and took an active part in the Girard Magazine editing. As Editor-in-Chief, Lloyd Minter reports a wonderful and worthwhile experience. As Associate, Willard Zurflieh made a large contribution of excellent quality to the poetry for which the Magazine is much appreciated. The leadership of the Record is assumed by Lloyd Minter who was ably assisted by Alfred Estill, Philip Evans, Carl Zoerner, Walter Pfizenmayer, and Willard Zurflieh. You have noticed that both of these publications came out on Time as usual. That is one test of efficiency, you know. For the literary organ of the alumni, chalk up a perfect mark for Harry Evans and Harold Williamson as good correspondents in keeping our older brothers in touch with our life and activities. Well, it has been a pleasure! This staff work has been thrilling and f ull of pleasure and profit. They enviably wish their successors the “best of luck” in this great work for the “Hum.” As a fitting conclusion we wish to extend our deepest and warmest gratitude to the sponsors of these publications: Professor George C. Foust of the News, Dr. Raymond Haskell of the Magazine, Dr. D. Montfort Melchior of Steel and Garnet, and to Mr. Charles M. Cooper and Mr. William C. Eldridge, instructors in the Print Shop. 12 Class Record Military Organization T HE time has come when the Class of January 1932 fails to respond to the command “Fall In.” For the last time we have obeyed the summons of “Dismissed,” and it leaves in us a hollow feeling. However, we have not been without adequate recognition in this organization. We have developed quite a large number of commissioned officers, all of whom have served to the best of their ability. In the senior term we had three captains: William Walton, Company A, Alfred Moscariello, Company B, and Carl Zoerner of Company C. Moscariello, previous to this term, had served for an entire year as lieutenant, while Walton and Zoerner served in this capacity for one semester. The Staff was headed by Adjutant John Whittick, with Walter Laird, 1st Lieutenant, Harold Reilly, Quartermaster, and Harry Evans, 2nd Lieutenant. As was previously the custom, parade was formed under the authority of the Staff at the beginning of this semester. Our class has also found some competent sergeants in the following: of Company A, Blair; of Company B, Gibney, Soherr; of Company C, Banks, Davis, Egan, Napoliello, and Howard, Color Sergeant; and of Company D, Ehrich, Kegerreis, Mignogna, a color Sergeant, and Zurflieh, first Sergeant. Besides this distinguished list of officers, our class received a specia l honor when John Gibney of Company B received first prize for proficiency in individual drill, while Lidio Mignogna of Company D received second prize. The medals which they received had a beautiful casting of Founder’s Hall on the front, and, on the reverse side, the name of the winner. As the echoes of “Retreat” die away, the class of January 1932 lock up the uniforms which they have so often worn in the past, and leave that organization with heavy hearts. “With heavy tread of feet, they march with the ages.” Our Trips ' ' " SEEING is believing.” This might well have been stated as our testi- mony for during our life in the College we enjoyed several trips arranged for the purpose of instruction. We benefited greatly by these trips and, at the same time, thoroughly enjoyed them. We made several day excursions in the city before entering the High School, but in our J-l term we were privileged to go to Valley Forge. This came in connection with our study of American History. It was not the buildings and marked spots that held our interest as much as the spirit of the place we felt— a spirit of reverence and respect for the brave men who made our liberty and freedom possible. Later we went on a day and night trip to Shenandoah and the Girard Estate. January, 1932 13 All the greyish slate piles, column banks and breakers, mines, and smoke in the distance brought forth the life and pictures of the hard work it takes to furnish us with heat for our comfort. So, as we saw many grimy-faced and tired miners plod wearily home with lunch boxes under their arms, we w ' ere thankful for all they do for us and glad that we didn’t have to follow their footsteps. And, of course, members of our class who were officers of the battalion en¬ joyed a trip to West Point. This trip was wonderful. Dressed in their uniforms, the members of this trip took the brunt of very amusing stories w hich you may secure by asking one of the boys who were there. The sights and interest¬ ing facts relative to this trip will surely be long remembered by everyone who went on it. There is one trip which conjured our anticipation long before we went upon it—the trip to Washington, the capital of our country. Here the members of our class saw the Capitol, the Lincoln Memorial, the Congressional Library, and a host of other interesting places. It is useless to attempt expressing how much it was enjoyed. However, we hung again pictures of a banner experience in the galleries of our memories. Everyone of the class of January 1931 will cherish the precious memory of Stephen Girard who made it possible for us to have such pleasure and instruction. We also wish to thank Mr. Frey, Dr. Melchior, Dr. Wolf, and Dr. Herrick for their part in this. School life is over, and gone with it are the trips we took, but the memories— thank God for them,—the memories are still with us. And so are good friends. The embers of these friendships shall never grow cold. 14 Class Record UPPER SENIOR Olimpio Napoliello William E. Walton Walter T. Laird William F.

And dust is robing silently the place Where daily he appeared with smiling face And taught the children with his patient care. It was his daily duly to prepare Young boys for life’s uncompromising race. He comes no more. No longer will he grace The school room or the master s vacant chair.

If we cannot convey our feelings through writing or music, we must express them through another language—the language of the tongue. The man who can speak in public with forceful, fluent, clear language is the man who has success within his immediate grasp. When we were in the upper Sophomore Class, we had our first taste of dra¬ matics, producing before the class several one-act plays that were coached by one of our classmates himself. Howard Andrews was the first in the class to make a public appearance in speaking when he delivered his original poem, Fire, before the High School assembly on December 1, 1930. The ice was cold, but he skated out like a good scout and broke it for the rest of us. Since then, things have rolled along more smoothly. When the Dramatic Club presented O’Neill’s In the Zone Eddie Edmunds proved among the best talent in the College with his interpretation of the Irish Driscoll’s character. Howard Andrews helped to fill in with the part of “Scotty.” The play was a great success, and we certainly were proud of our part in it. When the club came to prepare its annual play in 1931—Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, excellently re-written by our coach, Mr. Andrews, we again found our class represented. The now famous Eddie Edmunds did a fine job as an Irish “Bob” on the London police force. Emmett Dunn played the part of Dr. Jekyll’s comely rriaid-servant, while Howard Andrews held the minor part of a man on the street. That’s another play we shall always remember with pride. December brought the Annual Original Declamation Contest in which we rejoiced in having two representatives out of the six competitors. Howard Andrews and Robert Kerstetter proved to the upper Seniors that we lower Sen¬ iors were no mean competitors, for Andrews won second place with his Southern Scenes and Kerstetter took third place with his Adventure of Prayer. How the audience applauded ! And how we exulted! At Christmas time the Dramatic Club presented before the High School assem¬ bly Harry Kemp’s Don Juan’s Christmas Eve in which Howard Andrews charac¬ terized the part of the half-witted stable boy, Tadeo; Midhael Massa that of the tapster; James Parker that of Don Juan’s sweetheart, Esmeralda; and Joseph Knapp that of Roderick. The play was acclaimed as measuring up to the stand¬ ards set by previous Club productions, and again we had done our part. With the upper Senior term on hand in February of this year, we had steady work ahead of us. On Lincoln’s Birthday Robert Kerstetter’s presentaton of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and Howard Andrews’ delivery of Vachel Lindsay’s Lincoln Walks at Midnight opened the term with compliments from many sources. On Washington’s Birthday James Parker kept up the good work with an original eulogy on our country’s first president. The Friday morning original talks went ahead quite well on the whole with our aim always to set higher standards. Leslie Spencer initiated the practice with 4 Class Record a talk on The Far East Situation followed by Gustaf Ostrom on Amateur Radio, Emmett Dunn on John Masefield, Raymond Bell on Steinmetz, Robert Gilpin on Bill Tilden the Second, John Lewis on Tropical Fish, Michael Massa on Ants, Fred Hocking on Days of ’49, Irwin Chudnow on Philadelphia of the Past, Robert Sickles on Speed , Elmer Schneider on The Girard Camp. We hope we have laid the firm foundations for more interesting and mature original speeches in the future. Our class delivered thirteen Sunday evening reports on the lives, works, and influence of various great religious leaders. Michael Massa, Gustaf Ostrom, Fred Hocking, Manfred Garibotti, Kenneth Tennant, Irwin Chudnow, Edward Ed¬ munds, Robert Kerstetter, Raymond Bell, Howard Andrews, Raymond Wess, Jonn Angeny, and James Dunfee gave these reports in a very creditable manner. In this year’s annual group of plays w e were again well represented. You all know the fine piece of work Eddie Edmunds did in the characterization of the little “Dr. Rosy” in Sheridan’s Scheming Lieutenant . James Dunfee is to be complimen¬ ted on his work as the dashing young “Lt. O’Connor;” we also thank Michael Massa for his part as a fifer. You will never forget the excellent work James Parker did as “Nat” and Fred Prinz as “Dr. Higgins” in O’Neill’s Where the Cross is Made.. We believe that the memory of Howard Andrews as “Pere Marlotte” Will linger as long as that of the others, along with Lawrence Maybin as “St. Albret,” Manfred Garibotti as “Chevalier de Frontenac,” Emmett Dunn as “Isabelle,” and Raymond Pierce as an Indian. We thank our fine electricians also—Frank Douglass, Gustaf Ostrom, and John Angeny. Surely we have learned a wealth of dramatic treasure in these three plays, and fond memories of them will surge back as we sit and watch plays of the future. When Memorial Day rolled around, we had the four captains in the Battalion deliver the accustomed poetry and prose. Now we have come to our first climax—Commencement. We must show the very best that is in us. It has been decided that Fred Hocking, our Valedictorian, Ed. Edmunds, our Salutatorian, and Howard Andrews, our Class Speaker, shall make speeches at Commencement. Those three have decided to make more than mere speeches. They have resolved to make every fine thought, every noble expres¬ sion their supreme effort—the best that is in them. That’s what our class stands for. We shall be gone shortly. You who remain may remember us. We who go can never forget you—Girard. We have harder tasks to face than public speak¬ ing and dramatics. But we’ve learned to face them with the determination acquired in our public speaking training here. Girard has given us her best—we must give her name our best. We extend our most sincere and warm thanks to our director and coach, Mr. Henry V. Andrews, who has given himself to us wholly, untiringly, unselfishly. It is from men like him that we take our class standard—to give the best that is in us. AH the world’s a stage, And all the men and women are merely players. June, 1932 5 Athletics O UR class was first represented in this branch of College activity hy Edward Edmunds and Joseph Foreman. Both won their numerals in 1929; the former in gym and the latter in swimming. Later, during this same year, William Mosier and Irvin Seese earned their numerals in tennis. The following year, we were less modest in our representations. Our mem¬ bership in sports jumped from four to eight. Two boys were capable of winning their letters. William Mosier, a singles expert, won his in tennis, while Edward Edmunds, an accomplished gymnast, was awarded a “G” for work in the gym. Irvin Seese and John Flannery received numerals during this year for tennis, Robert Sickels for track, Robert McCutcheon and James Parker for swimming, and Robert Gilpin for soccer. Our only member on the 1931 gym team was Floyd Staupp, who is accredited with a letter. In baseball, during the summer of 1931, Harry McKeon, Robert Gilpin, Ray¬ mond Pierce, Robert Rogan and Irvin Seese were able to capture numerals. In she following year, Raymond Bell received numerals,and Raymond Pierce, Robert Gilpin, and Harry McKeon, their “G’s.” In 1931, Edward Edmunds earned his letter on the cinder path along with Robert Sickels, James Dunfee, and Charles Johnson. During this season Irwin Chudnow and George Lewis were able to win their numerals. The personnel of the track team this year found eight boys in the Class of June 1932. Captain Edmunds was the star and the teams highest point winner. Leslie Spencer was the manager, and was awarded his letter in this capacity. In addition to these two ietter men there were Joseph Foreman, George Peters, Fred Hocking, James Dunfee, Cloyd RufFaner, and Irwin Chudnow, all of whom made the team. Six men represented our class in swimming. Joseph Foreman was one who, after having won two numerals in this sport, wns accorded his letter in 1931. In both years, 1931 and 1932, Frank Douglass and Howard Andrews were awarded numerals. During the 1932 campaign, John Angeny and James Parker acquired their letters. Thomas Hammonds, assistant swimming manager in 1931 and manager in 1932, was awarded both numerals and letter for this work. On the soccer field our class was well represented for nine of our classmates helped Girard pass a most successful season. The letter men for 1931 were half¬ backs Robert Rogan and William Mosier, goal-teqder Raymond Bell, and full back Robert Gilpin. Numerals were awarded to Irvin Seese, James Dunfee, and Harry McKeon who played on the forward line. Manfred Garibotti and Alonzo Baker also received their “32’s” for their work as half-backs. Among those on the basketball team in 1932 were Robert Rogan, William Mosier, Irvin Seese, Raymond McCracken, Irwin Chudnow, and Raymond Bell, the playing manager. These above-mentioned fellows all won their letters while Alonzo Baker, Lawrence Maybin, Harry McKeon, Elwood Neely, and Kenneth Tennant received their numerals. 6 Class Record Four other fellows, Elmer Schneider, Paul Bankes, Gustav Ostrom, and Leo Milner earned their letters for serving as athletic officials. And now the Class of June 1932 takes this opportunity to thank all those who took interest in our athletic program at Girard, and all the coaches and officials who made our athletic successes possible. Military Activities T HE hopeful recruit of today is the general of tomorrow. Such it happened was the case in our class. We were made recruits in our One-one term, and we had not served in that capacity long when many of these raw soldiers decided that an officer’s position was a “cinch.” It may be interesting to note, also, that our class was the last group of recruits to wear the blue suits with the long trousers. During our Senior-two term we were represented on the Staff by Garibotti and Dunn as Captains of the Staff, Flannery as Adjutant, and Hammonds as Quartermaster. Elmer Schneider held the post of Senior Color Sergeant. Clay¬ ton Bucher was a Lieutenant on the Staff in our Senior-one term. As Captain of Company A, Howard Andrews served well. From the same company came Bankes, Supply Sergeant, and Prinz and Foreman as Sergeants. Mosier served as Supply Sergeant for Company B during our Senior-one term. Company C was ably captained by Neely. During the Senior-one term J. Johnson acted as Supply Sergeant with Sickles, Chudnow, Geist, and McKeon as Sergeants. Ruffaner and Knapp were Second Lieutenants. Captain Bell did a fine piece of work commanding Company D. During our Senior-one term this company was captained by Garibotti who was ably assisted by Dunn, Wess, and Spencer as Lieutenants, and by G. Lewis as Supply Sergeant. In the single Competitive Drill of January 1930, Manfred Garibotti, then a private, honored himself and his class by gaining first place in that drill. He was awarded a silver medal. Samuel Geist came through twice in single competi- tives by winning second in January ’30, and first in June ’30. For his work Geist was awarded a bronze medal the first time and a silver medal the second. Several merrfbers of our class attended C. M. T. C. last year and they came back with such good reports that many more members expect to enjoy a month in one or another of these camps. Those who attended last year were Raymond Bell, Jack Wess, George Lewis, and Joseph Foreman. June, 1932 7 School Publications T HE Department of English in Girard lias extensive activities. Besides govern¬ ing schoolroom work, there is a great deal of its activity that passes before the eyes of the public. It would be egotistical of our class to say that we have passed and left far behind all of our predecessors’ work, and it would also be very incorrect if we were to say that we have not equalled them. The publication that comes most frequently before us is The Girard Nears. By looking over the copies of the Neats it is easy to see that it was well managed. All of the articles were well written. The editorials were timely and of incalcu¬ lable value. Special columns were varied and interesting. Everything in the issues of last term points to a well-balanced, hard-working staff. Manfred O. Garibotti has done a fine piece of work during his Editorship of The Girard News. His associates, Charles Johnson and Fred Hocking are also to be highly complimented. The Girard News has created an interest in Girard’s own current events, and has added a great deal of pleasure to our school life. Girard’s oldest student publication is The Girard Magazine. Years ago this was a class Commencement Record, but now it is purely a literary journal. Just as a step forward was taken when the Magazine was made purely literary, an additional step forward has been taken in the last five months by means of radica ' . changes in the contents and the appearance of this work. First of all, the editori¬ al articles were omitted, and this branch of activity was taken over by The Girard News. The Hamilton Codd Forum was also discontinued because this was, first of all, a character that was given a different aspect by each successive writer. Thus The Girard Magazine has taken a stride forward by providing more space for literary contributions, and by discontinuing articles which occupied space that might be used more advantageously. The Girard Magazine during our brief reign has been under the guidance of George W. Lewis, as Editor, Irwin Chudnow, the President of the Literary Club, and Irving Frankel. They have fulfilled their duties and have carried the Magazine to a higher level. In the Commencement Record we have tried to show in its true light the relationship of the Qass of June 1932 to Girard College. The Staff of the Record has compiled the achievements and honors gained by the memliers of the class. These achievements have been written in such a manner as would not seem boastful, and yet would show that the Class of June ’32 really did its best to become a helpful influence in the everyday life of Girard. Those chosen by the Class to be their representatives in this publication were Fred G. Hocking, Editor-in-Chief, and his associates, Edward Edmunds, Howard Andrews, George W. Lewis, Charles •E. Johnson, and Manfred Garibotti. Thus we pass on to our successors the school publications. May their work with them be as helpful and as interesting as it has been for us; and may their suc¬ cesses be as unlimited as our attempts have been valuable to us. 8 Class Record Trips F IELD trips provided for the various classes are activities to which every boy looks forward. It was in our Upper Junior term that we made our first trip. Late in the term we took the annual trip of the Junior Classes to Valley Forge. At this shrine of American Independence the class spent a day looking over the various memorials of our country’s Revolutionary period. This outing is still in our memories and will ever be when we think of all that took place there. At the close of our Senior-one term we were taken on a three-day tour to Washington, D. C. This trip left much with us to be thought about. We saw the various buildings in which the governing powers of this country of ours act. We saw the many sites left from the days of George Washington; Mount Vernon, with its spacious gr ounds and colonial buildings. The last trip afforded to the classes by the College is the trip of the Senior Classes to the Girard Estate and coal properties at Shenandoah. This unique experience familiarized the boys with the activities which surround a coal mine. Music M USIC is vital in life; but, to appreciate or reproduce it, one must work. Due to the constant training and good advice of our friend, Mr. Carey, many of our class have blossomed into real singers. Twenty-three members have earned places in the Glee Club. Manfred Garibotti held the presidency of the Club throughout his Senior-two term, and Raymond Pierce was his vice-presi¬ dent. We extend to them our hearty congratulations for their splendid services. Howard Andrews and George Lewis showed themselves to be competent librarians. Robert Kerstetter, Norman Abel, Robert Gilpin, Elwood Neely, Leslie Spencer, Robert McCutcheon, John Miller, Frank Douglass, Irving Frankel, John Lewis, Michael Massa, Robert Sickles, Raymond Wess, Fred Prinz, Harry McKeon, James Parker, Cloyd Ruffaner, Robert Rogan, and Kenneth Tennant complete the list. We thank them for the entertainment they provided us, and commend them for the fine work they did. In the band we find three more of our classmates: Norman Abel, Irving Frankel, and John Angeny, members from 1-1 to S-2. Frankel and Abel played clarinets, and Angeny performed on the Sousaphone. Abel was first lieutenant and assistant leader in S-l and captain and leader in his upper Senior term. Angeny served as first lieutenant and assistant leader, and Frankel as second lieutenant. All of these fellows performed in a manner that has brought credit to them and the class. June, 1932 9 Fred Hocking and Edward Edmunds played in the Orchestra from 1-1 to S-l. Hocking played the clarinet and Edmunds the violin. Eddie was assistant con- certmaster in his lower Senior term, and Fred was leader of the woodwind section. Kenneth Tennant and Michael Massa continued in the orchestra until they grad¬ uated, Ken played the viola, and Mike the flute and piccolo. Both were leaders in their last term. These boys all did their best to make the orchestra a success. We congratulate them all and hope they continue to develop their musical talent. Last, but not least, in our list is John Miller. He is our only representative in the piano and organ class. John received two prizes for proficiency on these instruments, one while he was in 7B, and the second when he was in S-2. He also won second prize in the Boy’s Week Organ Contest in 1931. Of course, it is well known that he has done his part in providing accompaniment for the Sunday evening services. We commend him for the help and pleasure he has given us, and wish him success for the future. We extend to those men who have done so much for these boys and the class our deepest gratitude: Messrs. George O. Frey, Earl Pfouts, Bruce Carey, Edward Cullen, and Harry Banks, Jr. Our thank you is a very warm one. Socials M ANY of the friends we have gained and delightful memories we treasure are the pleasant outcomes of our class socials. Sufficient expressions of gratitude for the enjoyments we obtained from these affairs are almost impossible for us to make. Our first social was held on Friday evening, January 16, 1931. Excited and happy, we were, amid a cherry and white decorative scheme. The streamers were woven into a net above us which, in turn, wove into our spirits the gaiety it dis¬ played. The effects of these colors were in harmony with the excitement the novelty had placed upon us. During a pause in the dancing, President Garibotti presented to our hosts and hostess. Miss Munn, the pins of the Class. This act conferred upon them honorary membership in our class. Three months had to pass before our Junior-two social would be held. This time soon passed, howtever, and the spring social was upon us. Spring surrounded us and its magic touch had found its place within our spirits. The social room had all the signs of the new season that could be desired—green streamers representing the ever-increasing verdure of the outside world, and flowers blooming abundantly in the soft yellow rays of the tulip-garbed lights. Leaving the hall this evening was done with no small regret; regret that this thing of joy wtas not to be a joy forever and that so long a time must elapse before the next dance. 10 Class Record Regardless of this seemingly long time, it did elapse; and quickly too. We had buckled down to work—work which made long days seem short. At last it came for the harvest time had rolled around. Another of these anticipated affairs came to bring us our pleasure. It was our Senior-one social. A huge and smiling moon in harvest yellow greeted a band of happy dancers. Shining stars and crescents added picturesqueness to the decorations. Novelty dances left us with the remembrances of their gaiety. Confetti filled the air, and, though it has since been brushed aside, its bits of joy remain with those on whom it fell. Careful planning made our last social the best of all. It was held during this year in February and did honor to the Bicentennial Celebration of Washington’s Birthday. The keynote of the decorations lay in the patriotic appeal of our national tri-colors. Red, white, and blue streamers radiated overhead in flowing grandeur. And we shall have reminiscences, in fair days to come, of delightful times the joy of which we shall recall with gratitude. In conclusion, we wish to extend to our hostesses and hosts: Miss Munn, Miss Duncan, Miss Schanley, Mr. Blythe, and Mr. Nicholson our appreciation for their earnest efforts in making these affairs great successes.
