Jind where our desires are and our hopes profound. Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight. To the innocent heart of their comrades they are known Jis the stars are known the night. ” —Binyon Snnalii SUrss 1918-1932 Militant Morris 1918-1934 January, 1936 CHRONICLES 3 Foreword That this book may tend to strengthen the bond of undy¬ ing loyalty between the boys of Girard College and the College itself by serving as a means of pleasant reminiscence in the future of the happy days spent here is the fervent wish of the editors while compiling this volume. Appreciation Nowhere in the body of this book does there appear any mention of our teachers, instructors, or of those who have given their energies in our behalf in the household. This does not mean we have forgotten or, overlooked them. Though this space is inadequate and our words but feeble messengers of our feelings, we say to all our wise and beloved friends and counsellors after the manner of Abraham Lincoln, “All that we are or hope to be, we owe in a large measure to your painstaking instruction and to Girard College.’’ 4 CHRONICLES January, 1936 To Six Distinguished Alumni William E. Littleton He was one of the first three hundred boys to be admitted to the College. He entered December 1848 and left April 1855. For many years he was an Attor- ney-at-Law and served as President of the Council of Philadelphia. As such, he was the first alumnus to sit as an Ex-Officio member of the Board of Di¬ rectors of the College. Harry Brocklehurst He had charge of some building operations for the Girard Estate. In his will he left a fund of $50,000 to be applied for the use and benefit of for¬ mer students of Girard College. He came to Girard in February 1864 and left June 1871. James E. Lennon For many years he, too, was Presi¬ dent of the Council and also an Ex- Officio Board member at the College. He left a fund of $1000 for the pur¬ chase of books for any of the Alumni who are pursuing their studies in other schools. Admitted to the College in January 1870, he left in July 1877. John R. Neison In Mr. Neison we have an example of the plodder who started at the very bottom with the Ajax Metal Works of Philadelphia and at last gained its high¬ est position. His recent death revealed that he gave to the Board a residuary fund of approximately $125,000 to be used in helping needy Alumni or to aid an Alumnus in furthering his education. He was in the College from February 1871 to November 1880. Henry Kraemer The shining light of the Philadelphia School of Pharmacy was Dr. Kraemer. He was admitted to Girard in June 1877 and left in January 1884. Ultimately he became an authority on Chemistry and is revered by students of that science. William H. Kingsley We all know Mr. Kingsley. He is a familar figure in our Chapel services. For fifty years he has been connected with the Penn Mutal Life Insurance Company and is at present first Vice- President. Mr. Kingsley has the added distinction of being the first alumnus ever to be appointed by the Board of Judges as a member of the Board of Directors of City Trusts. He is the only living Alumnus on this list. He entered Girard December 1877 and left Febru¬ ary 1885. Whom We Strive to Emulate January, 1936 CHRONICLES 5 The Need The repeating of the oath of allegiance in the morning assembly of May 19, 1932, marked the beginning of a new phase of life in Girard—the National Honor Society. The idea was not a new one. More than a year before, in a meeting of the Faculty, there had been voiced the need for an organiza¬ tion for boys—a society—which would do honor to those members of the stu¬ dent body who, by high scholarship, fine character, leadership, and influence, distinguish themselves during their stay here. After long study and much de¬ liberation the National Honor Society was chosen as the desired mark of dis¬ tinction. That inaugural ceremony was an answer to an urgent need and the ful¬ filment of a highly constructive dream. What are the Society’s objectives ? Character We consider Character the sustaining power behind all great action. It con¬ sists of an amicable combination of principle and energy guided by the ability to be either pliable or inflexible on occasion, which is, in reality, the exercise of will. The possessor of char¬ acter makes enemies, but “he makes no friends who never made a foe.” Scholarship Education, of which scholarship is an important part, should be the greatest interest of any thoughtful boy. Its purpose is to develop, to unfold to their fullest extent each of his capacities. The result is an enjoyment of life which is best in quality and endless in amount. Leadership The product of Character.and Knowl¬ edge is Leadership. Knowledge makes one ready; Character makes him willing. The leader is always at the head of any movement, and he guides the others. If the goal is ever abandoned, he is the last one to consider such an act. Good and wise leaders are an everyday neces¬ sity. Service The words of the Bible, “Show me thy faith without thy works and I will show you my faith by my works,” ex¬ emplify the true aim which the Society represents. After all, why be a student, why be a leader, why a man, if not to serve ? Doing something for some one else is service to the doer. 6 CHRONICLES January, 1936 {Bashful ylmateurs The first real plays we ever took part in at the College were those annual lov¬ able Christmas plays of the Middle School which depicted life at the season of Yuletide in Old England. We enjoyed the custom of adding some new part to the old script every year and keeping it as a regular scene if it were successful. Our new scene was “St. George and the Dragon,” and we were immensely inter¬ ested in performing it. The background we received there in those grade school plays doubtless laid the foundation for all our theatrical triumphs since then. We Try Again It was in the Seventh Grade that we gave the play, “The Old Sleuth” and so revived our dramatic interests. As you may recall, we also attempted “A Christ¬ mas Carol” on the same afternoon! We claim no successes from these small efforts, but they were great fun, and even at that they served their purpose. “Stephen Girard ” It may be safely said that “Stephen Girard” is the play which will remain longest in the minds and hearts of all those who are connected with Girard College and who saw it. The charac¬ terization of the Founder was quite authentic and was well executed. The supporting cast is still to be congrat¬ ulated again at this late date. We are proud to have taken so large a part in the rejuvenation of the man to whom we owe our all and to give to those who would take it, a clear, accurate and las¬ ting picture of him who has so often been criticized through sheer lack of knowledge of him. Minor Roles in Outstanding Plays It was the good fortune of some of us to have participated in such other excel¬ lent performances as “The Merchant of Venice,” “She Stoops to Conquer,” “Jean Valjean,” and “Christmas Eve.” The training we received in public speak¬ ing and the uses we made of it are, in addition, only to our credit, and we hope to the credit of the College. January, 1936 CHRONICLES 7 In The Classroom Our earliest memories of Girard are inseparably linked with music. For many years we were under the constant supervision of willing teachers who lab¬ ored to show us the uses of voice and to impress upon us the value of a love for music. These lessons form the basis for all our other training in this art. The Choir The Junior Hundred was the first opportunity to put into practice what we had learned. We cannot forget those dreary hours we spent in rehearsing for “The Children’s Crusade,” our first big performance, but we are proud of the results. More recently many of our members have become interested in the work of the Glee Club. The history of that organization and its activities is well-known because of its success. Vo¬ cal music has made so deep an impres¬ sion on us that we are certain the enjoy¬ ment we derived from singing can only increase with time. Instrumental Back as far as the fifth grade the study of the violin was first undertaken by those of us who were interested. Then in the seventh year, Junior High, some fellows branched off into the fields of the wind instruments. Along the way many dropped out leaving only the better musicians behind. Perhaps this accounts for the outstanding successes of the Band and Orchestra in the past few terms. Looking On Music is one activity in which every¬ one is engaged. Just because a boy was not a member of the Choir, the Band, or the Orchestra, in no way indicates that he had no musical inclinations. All of us took part in and enjoyed the group singing of the Chapel services and the informal Auditorium programmes. They linger with us because they are part of us. CHRONICLES January, 1936 Reluctance It was no small feeling of anticipation which enveloped us as our first dance approached. Some new urge prompted us to purchase stiff collars and stylish neckties. The appointed night found us busy dressing, taking great pains with polishing shoes and arranging clothes. Timidly we ventured to the dance hall and, although some of us were brave, most of us began reluctantly to dance, mercifully avoiding the toes of our attrac¬ tive partners. How differently we felt an hour later! We were delighted. The ice had been broken and the whole affair became a pleasant success. Further Gaiety Naturally enough, we were as anxious and as excited about the following dances as we had been about the first. Similar preparations were made and there lingers with us a corresponding amount of pleas¬ ant memories. But the thrill of novelty alone was lacking. Happy will be the reminiscenoes of all successive parties, and each will have its distinctive intima¬ cies. We will readily admit the pang of regret which filled us when the closing measures of the final dance were played. Regret in the end had supplanted the re¬ luctance of the beginning! Song-sheet or Uniform Interspersed among the other dances were two spectacular evenings—at least they were for some of us. The “Glee- kies” will remember how we practiced “Clouds” and also that a certain pal of ours so innocently failed to make his appearance! The Officers possess a vivid recollection of donning their uniforms and wrapping stubborn puttees in getting ready to escort their lady friends to per¬ haps the most glamorous of all socials— the Officers’ Dance. After all, it matters not. Either song-sheet or uniform, the enjoyment we received was equal and in each case the memories just as dear. January, 1936 CH RONICLES Small Beginnings Our sketchy military careers began with a brief period of absolute domina¬ tion. As the last rernant of a bygone generation, and as timid newcomers to the Houses, we were bunched together and recruited by our not too generous drill masters. Finally the rudiments of marching, facing, and the uses of the rifle were hammered into us, but all the while we led a perplexing existence because we were far from fully compre¬ hending what was being done with us. Our only effort between Mondays and Fridays was to do our best to forget what we had supposedly been taught on the drill floor. Just Cogs There came that day when we were placed in the hands, or shall we say the clutches, of the captains of the compa¬ nies. Blank files in the rear ranks were specially reserved for our feeble mili¬ tary efforts. We had become cogs in the machinery of a company. We executed maneuvers mechanically for fear of being harshly reprimanded. Upon only two commands did we look with any kindly feeling—“Rest” and “Dismissed,” but our superior officers made sure that these were omitted from their vocabularies. “Book Larnin ” But all this was interrupted by what we expected to be a welcome relief from the summer sun, the heavy rifles, and the irritating woolen uniforms, but which proved to be another hurdle along the way. How well we remember our fail¬ ings and our shortcomings in the Gen¬ eral’s tactics class! And our first cor¬ poral’s test! A mere handful of us passed, but with all we had gone beyond the mechanical stage —wc were informed! Gradually some of us assumed command. Taking Stock After four years of training, what benefits did we receive? Looking back, we jest, wholesomely. It taught us dis¬ cipline and released our latent initiative. Our experiences in this field form a dis¬ tinctive page in our book of memories. CHRONICLES January, 1936 IU Doubtful Journalists Who of us can forget the days in the Middle School when we made our first attempts at newspaper writing? The Elementary School News embodied our timid efforts at self-expression. The poetry (at least we called it that) which we proudly sent to the High School as our contribution to the Girard Magazine was of no real importance. Its value lay in the fact that it created in us a desire to continue this kind of work and to improve our product, The road leading to development of style and per¬ sonality in writing was a lengthy and a rough one. We hope that what we have since published is proof that we reached our goal. The News Despite the limited number of issues and the lack of photographs or other embellishments, we feel that the Girard News represents a high standard of writ¬ ing. What the paper contains may not be much in news value, but its language and style are above reproof. However, we do not claim that the News is a highly journalistic publication. We do not claim literary perfection. There is always a chance for improvement. It is our hope that sometime in the future all the necessary and desirable extra features of the News may be provided for and that the paper will be looked upon with more interest and the respect which it deserves. The Magazine But the real test of writing ability came when some of us were made members of theLiterary Club Member¬ ship to that organization entails the making of some contribution to the Magazine. The history of this pamphlet is brilliant. Its steady improvement through the last eight years is nothing but creditable. We express our appre¬ ciation for all past and all future editions of the Girard Magazine , the stories and articles which we always delighted to read. The Record The Class Book Chronicles should speak for itself. At least we hope it does. The saying is, “The proof of the pudding is in the eating” and the proof of the Record is in the reading! January, ivjo L n K U IN ILLLS I I Do You Remember? It was at four o’clock on some after¬ noon almost nine years ago that most of us first set foot on a “hum” play¬ ground. Whether soccer or baseball was being played, we were probably ig¬ nored that day. It was no wonder when we learned, by experience of course, that the best fighters picked the teams and were also the star players because no one dared to supersede them. Many times the games ended in a quarrel, but, looking back, it was great fun. The zest for sport became part of us and we are grateful for it. Intramural The years gradually perfected the class games so that in our first terms in the Houses we were well equipped for giving our support to our respective col¬ ors as Midgets. It was our first taste of “house spirit” and rivalry in the class. In succeeding terms we expressed our loyalty and had an opportunity to play on the House first and second teams. Never will we think of Girard without recalling those struggles for the various cups! Some one has said that the school team is only a spur for fine interhouse activity; and from what we, as players and as spectators, have witnessed, we might be inclined to believe it. The Hum Teams From the earliest of our days as sports¬ men each one of us cherished the secret ambition of one day playing on a college team. A look, however brief, into the honors of the various members of the class will prove beyond a doubt that our hopes were realized. Soccer was the chief success for out of the nine games we played all were victories. Track was a popular sport, and the team won a large number of its meets. Basketball, though only three of our members played last season, was in a measure successful be¬ cause of our representatives. We were, on the whole, well represented in the five major sports, and we wish to express our appreciation of those members of our class who so ably captained their re¬ spective teams. 12 CHRONICLES January, 1936 January, 1936 CHRONICLES 13 14 CHRONICLES January, 1936 January, 1936 CHRONICLES 15 Founder ' s Hall 16 CHRONICLES January, 1936 JOHN ' PERSHING ARENTZ ••JACK - PRESIDENT Lincoln Apartments Ardmore, Pa.

Herrick, Ph.D., LL.D. To whom, as President of Girard College for more than a quarter century, we respectfully dedicate this Class Record. June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 3 To the President of Girard College That day is e’er too soon when We must part, And you will go to leisure doubly earned. Where dwell those pleasures oft so near your heart, Those quiet hours for which you’ve lately yearned. Though strange it is that Time can lead us so, ’Tis but the flesh and not the Soul in sere; Now you may from our vision really go, Your worlds and spirit still will linger here. Through you this school’s enjoyed deserved fame, Its Founder’s dreams will all come true at last; Great teacher, father, minister—we praise your name! Crusader strong of precious mettle cast. You’ve made our life and duty more sublime. You’ve been to us the Arnold of our time. PROLOGUE Senior A. Bill, how about our Commencement Record? Is anybody work¬ ing on it yet? Senior B. Yes, yes. We’ve been thinking about it for a week or more, and everybody wants something different. Most of us want a series of scenes. That’s what life is in school, you know. Senior A. Right-O! “The play’s the thing,” as Shakespeare would put it. Let it be a play. Senior B. We’ll take a vote on it tomorrow. To put the record of our class—its high points anyhow—in a series of scenes. A great idea, Al. Let’s see how the boys ’ll take it. June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 5 SCENE I Time: ’Tis Spring, and ten five in the evening. Place: Girard College Auditorium. The final curtain has just fallen on that illustrious play, “The Would-Be Gentleman,” by Moliere. A fine gathering of spec¬ tators occupy the center section of the room. Older students applaud on the side sections and in the gallery. Two seniors talk in the rear of the auditorium. A. But the two plays differ greatly, Al. They should never be compared. B. To be sure, Stephen Girard is a literary-historical play, but particularly interesting because of our life interest in the Benefactor. The Would-Be Gentle¬ man is a comic-satire done in a pleasing but unrealistic manner from the Amer¬ ican’s point of view. A. Then give the credit to the devoted actors and versatile director. B. And how cleverly he made every player a character, didn’t he? Klose will ever stay in my mind as the Tory of 1776. How nicely Ruhland, the vag- grant boy, drew out the character of Stephen Girard. But we must hand it to Young for doing so clever a piece of work with the would-be gentleman of the seventeenth century French style. There were mood and spirit in his acting. A. What about the pert, longnosed Master of Philosophy? B. Antoniacci? Good, wasn’t he? By Jove, I shan’t forget him. Seriousness coupled with wild motions and sprays of comics. But who was that flashy Master of Fencing?—Campbell, you say? A. Smudin was a handsome, suave lover, wasn’t he? B. Nearly twenty little girls at the stage door were looking for Randich and Massimiami. Autograph seekers, eh? Well, the Director will take a few days’ vacation now. A. We aren’t going to forget these two plays in many years to come. 6 DRAMATIS PERSON E June, 1936 SCENE II Time: Founder’s Day, May 20, 1936, at 4.30 P. M. Place: The Parade Ground of Girard College. Legend: A swarming group of gaudily dressed people are moving to the rear steps of the north side of Founder’s Hall and a nearby grandstand. Others bob about and quickly fill the open spaces where standing room and other seats are available. A martial air played by the band grows louder and louder. Senior A. Here comes the “Batty” now. The band has just swung around Mariner Hall. Isn’t that Scrobe waving the baton? Senior B. Yes, he’s been doing that for a year. Senior A. Well there’s the staff! Senior B. There’s Campbell, who took the post of adjutant in J-2; he should be on General Brookfield’s right by now. There’s Pugliese next to him. “Pug” used to be a lieutenant in Company D. Senior A. Here is Company D now—leading—and that’s where they belong. Company C is second, and guards the flag. They deserve that honor. No com¬ pany has ever measured up to them in getting that “something” into the “Corn- petty” that brings victory. They ' ll hold that honor, too. Watch them! Senior B. Don’t be so sure, Bill. Captain Walter is putting “pep” into Company A that will get them somewhere this year. Watch them. But give me the band; then you don’t have to lose in “Competty.” Senior A. Well, I rather like to be eligible for that four o’clock privilege twice a week. Of course, if we could wear Pino’s shoes and “cage” that indivi¬ dual “Competty,” I should choose the hard work instead of the privileges. Senior B. And what about the discipline and fine training? “You can’t be a good general till you’ve been a good soldier.” June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 7 SCENE III Time: Morning of June 3. Place: Yard between Mariner and Merchant. Characters: Two Senior-one boys who meet and pause to pass a word or two on a subject on which they have talked before. Senior E. Heigh, Don. Senior F. Heigh, Bud. Senior E. Don, how can a fellow get into that Journalist Club now? Senior F. Well, you have to be elected by its members, but you can’t make it unless your marks are high in English and you have a reputation as a worker. Why don’t you try for a place in the Literary Club? Senior E. That’s a good club, too, but I’d like a part in putting out the News. The Journalists Club is the Girard News staff, and that is an experience more than worth while, it seems to me. Senior F. See Antoniacci, the present Editor-in-chief, or Scrobe, the Pres¬ ident of that Club, and they’ll tell you what to do. Freedman graduates too. That leaves three vacancies on that staff. Senior E. They did a good job all right. It means something to hold the News up to its customary level, and even more to get some improvemtents. But I may look into the Literary Club. Their work is interesting because they study plays, playwrights, poets and their best works, besides producing the Magazine. Too bad the Magazine can’t be issued at least four times a year. Senior F. Why not see Editor-in-chief Campbell or Spinelli, who has been President of the Literary Club. Aiken, Rosenburg, and Sands have been on that staff, too. Any one of those fellows can tell you. And they might recommend you for a place with thle “Lit.” if you feel you can do a good job. Senior E. A great idea. Thanks, Don. 8 DRAMATIS PERSON E June, 1936 SCENE IV Time: Evening. Place: A reading room in Bordeaux. Characters: Only four seniors — A, B, C, D. A. My earliest recollection in this music work is the Junior Hundred. Boy, how we worked on that “Children’s Crusade.” But who isn’t boastful now that he has sung in the great Mendelssohn Choir? And we won’t forget how “Caesar” Antoniacci took the award for the mellowest soprano choice. B. Well, we had the pleasure of growing up into the Glee Club, and that’s where we “got our noses over the notes and blended our voices in true harmony.” A. Say, Al. Who will the “Gleekies” remember as the boy who really liked to sing solos? C. Now don’t let that out, Bill. Just put down a fine piece of work for Bill Surgener as leader and club president and let it go at that. D. But I shall never forget 1935. Remember the grand finale of Carl Gold¬ mark’s “Sakuntala”? Mr. Frey put us through the mill on that, didn’t he? A. We played like an experienced military band last Founder’s Day. B. Right. And for that give some of the credit to Captain Purcell and officers Scrobe, Frank el, Glick, and Griswold. D. And don’t forget Student Leaders Schneider and Fassett. They knew their stuff. A. But how about the high point in music in our class experience? D. That’s easy, Bill. When the whole school sang the cantata from Bach it brought the house down. That was an hour we shall never forget. C. Hey, there, fellows! Have you heard the latest ? Mr. Carey has just been handed a Doctor of Music degree at Moravian College. Great! (In Unison.) Hooray, Carey! Doctor Carey! June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 9 SCENE V Time: Saturday, January 11, 1936. Seniors are returning from Washington. Place: Interior of a Baltimore and Ohio Coach. Two seniors converse. Senior B. This Washington trip has been wonderful. Although the chapel at Valley Forge was very beautiful, and we saw a great many historic places there, I think we enjoyed ourselves much more in Washington. Senior A. Naturally we did. It was the first time that most of us slept and ate in a hotel. I don’t see why anybody wouldn’t have a lot of fun. Senior B. What a sight that was in the Capitol! We saw the S’enate and the House of Representatives in action, and the Supreme Court Justices at work. Senior A. That was wonderful, but for me the biggest thrill was Mount Vernon. Just to think that we were standing right in the house of George Wash¬ ington, where a couple hundred years ago he might have been standing himself. Senior B. Did you walk to the top of the Washington Monument. Senior A. I didn’t. Walking down was bad enough. Senior B. How did you like the Washington theatres? Senior A. Whew! The theatres were all right but the people’s smoking made me dizzy. Senior B. Hah! Hah! So I thought too. By the way, don’t you think it was pretty tough that we didn’t have good weather? Senior A. Yes, maybe the pictures I took in the Lincoln Memorial, at the White House, and at Arlington won’t come out well. Senior B. Maybe the pictures will be spoiled, but our good time wasn’t. (Call is heard from behind the scenes: “First call for dinner!”) Senior A. Let’s go, boys! I hear we get chicken. 10 DRAMATIS PERSON E June, 1936 SCENE VI Time: Friday, June 5. Society members have just been inducted. Place: First floor corridor. High School building. Two seniors lean against the wall as they engage in conversation. Senior A. Well, now that Aiken and Rosenberg sit in the seats of honor, che National Honor Society has claimed seven of the Class of June 1936. Senior B. I wonder if we aren’t one of the few classes to place three members while they were in J-2? Campbell, Antoniacci, and Walters. And in the S-l term they took two more—Scrobe and Spinelli. Senior A. C.S.L.S. Citizenship, Scholarship, Leadership, and Service. Those are great qualities to keep before a school, and we are all happy to see seven of our own boys conspicuous in their possession. Senior B. You know, Al, those qualities serve as the basis for elimination of prospective members, too. When the members of the society, teachers, and housemasters go over the upper third of the class and find only two or three eligible each term, it becomes a real honor to make the National Honor Society. Senior A. “Survival of the fittest!” Well, they should survive, all right, and of course they should be especially honored. Senior B. Shsh! Here come s ome of them now. Let’s go over there and see how they feel. They certainly look pleased, don’t they? Senior A. (to himself) What wouldn’t I give to be with that group! June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 1 I SCENE VII Time: Present. Place: A section room in one of the upper houses. Characters: Five letter men—all Seniors. Senior C. Remember those snowball fights between Lafayette and Good Friends? Gone are the days of being “newbies” and celebrating “Mothers’ Day. Senior D. Well, house competition took that out of us a bit, and it was good training for the varsity squads. Our class took a big part in all this, but Bordeaux takes all honors with four cups. Senior E. Yes, there’s Ed. Foreaker, a six-letter man with two letters each in soccer, baseball, and basetball. Senior C. And Aiken, track star and captain. Think of our track material: Antoniacci and Aiken—distance men; Spinelli and Gould—in the hurdles; Young and Dworkin on the weights, and Co-Captain Surgner, Scrobe, and Sands as jumpers. Senior D. Swimming interested me more. We won all of our twelve meets. And give due credit to Co-Captain Schneider, Glick, Purcell, and Campbell. Senior E. Take our star pitcher, Klose, Captain Walters—heavy hitter—a born leader, Foreaker, Rodgers, and Clegg and we helped make baseball here this year, too. It was a fairly bad start in basketball last winter, but, with Captain Reifsnyder’s spirit and the efforts of Foreaker, Clegg, Scrobe, and Walter, Girard can’t be ashamed of our part. Senior D. When we make up the record for the year, we must not omit the fact that we won nine games—every game, in fact, played in soccer last fall, thereby upholding the Girard record of “no defeats since 1931.” Time and again Rodgers, Klose, and Foreaker covered themselves with glory. Just mention those star defense players of the Class of June 1936 and, well, “Nuff’s said!” 12 DRAMATIS PERSON E June, 1936 SCENE VIII Time: Immediately after the elimination dance, Senior-two social evening. Place: Corner of the ballroom, Founder’s Hall. Two seniors are seated in the corner of the room where they are earnestly conversing. Soft music emanates from behind the scenery in the orchestra corner. Senior A. Is “Andy” Caldwell lucky! That’s the second year he’s won the elimination dance. Senior B. Yes, and he won the spot dance in S-l, too. {Laughing.) How did Haich ever win in the J-2 dance with “Andy” on the job? Senior A. Don’t forget Stapes luck in J-l—at the hop. {Both watch dancers who are supposed to be dancing off stage.) Senior B. Bill, who’s the best dancer on the floor? Senior A There’s no choice, Al. They all dance well—but differently. Senior B. How funny it all seems now when we look back to J-l days. How the big fellows used to josh us about being afraid to dance! A. You can always tell the veteran dancers from the novices. The veterans are the first on the floor. That’s why you see S-2 on the floor first. {The orches¬ tra starts playing Auld Lang Syne.) Senior B. (With a sigh.) The last dance of the last social. We must not forget to thank the hostesses. They put a lot into these dances for us. Senior A. Look! There are two girls not dancing. Follow me! We mustn’t sit by and watch our guests have an unpleasant evening. {The strains of Auld Lang Syne die out and the curtains come together.) June. 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 13 ARTHUR L.

As Emerson said, “The only way to have a friend is to be one.” “Andy” was everybody’s friend.

Box 73 New Hope, Pa. Piano Class, 6A to S-2; Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; President, French Club, S-2; Sil¬ ver Expert Typist Pin, S-2. “Porky” has a reason for taking up the trade of pipe fitting. It seems that he was made for his profession. The tunnels are low; so is “Porky,” but he intends to go high. He should; he is a pole vaulter. His piano chords struck our heart¬ strings. “Denny” enlivened many dull moments with his own arrangements of popular songs. Let’s hope he becomes even more famous than Eddy Duchin, or Paderewski, if you please. 20 DRAMATIS PERSON E June, 1936 ALBERT E. M. DUBBS “BOT” BERNARD DWORKIN “GABBY” Pine Grove, Pa. Glee Club, J-2; Vice-President, Chem¬ istry Club, S-2. 1210 S. 17th Street Philadelphia, Pa. Track, ’34; Track Team, ’35; Cast: Stephen Girard; Cast: Don Juan’s Christ¬ mas Eve. The blood of the “wild and wooly west” courses through his veins. We all re¬ member him racing to the radio at the first sound of yodeling, and during his leisure time he was often seen poring over a cowboy tale. “Bottle” should have been born a century earlier, when men were men, and the cattle knew it. “Gabby” has a nickname that was well earned. His expostulation was constant. One day, however, “Gab” received a great surprise. He settled baek on his heels in c classroom and poured forth a stream of lengthy words. “Enough! Sit down! came from a wearied teacher. “Gab sat down darkly. He had finally been stop- June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 21 FRANCIS EGAN STANLEY A.

Thy clouds all other clouds dispel And lap me in delight. Besides athletics, “Egs” has other hob¬ bies. 22 DRAMATIS PERSON L June, 1936 ELWOOD J. FARRINGTON CLARENCE DAVID FASSETT 400 Bethlehem Pike Erdenheim, Pa. Manager, Basketball Team, ’35-’36; Or¬ chestra, 1-1 to 2-2. “It ' s the little things that count” “Fuss’ ” small stature was only a frag¬ ment of what made up his peculiar, like¬ able personality. 5040 Irving Street Philadelphia, Pa. Band, 7B to S-2; Orchestra, J-2 to S-2; Assistant Leader, Orchestra, S-2; Ser¬ geant, Band, S-l; Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Swimming Team, ’35-’36. “Mouse” only denotes his nickname. When some obstacle confronts him, he fights it with his habitual sticktoitiveness until it is wiped clear of his path. June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSONAE 23 " ED” 708 Darby Crescent Prospect Park, Pa. Orchestra, 7A to S-2; Assistant Con¬ cert Master, Orchestra, S-2; Librarian, Music Club, S-2; Assistant Librarian, Music Club, S-2; G!ee Club, J-2 to S-2; Vice-President, Class, S-l; Soccer, ’34; Soccer Team, ’35; Basketball Team, ’35- ’36; Baseball, ’34, ’35. “Ed” is a mighty fellow. He displayed his ability on the baseball diamond, the basketball floor, the soccer field, behind a pair of boxing gloves, and on the ping pong table. An all-ronnd man you see. This is our “Ed.” BERNARD FRANKEL “BEAR " 1883 W. Columbia Avenue Philadelphia, Pa. Band, 7 A to S-2; Orchestra, S-l to S-2; First Lieutenant, Band, S-2; President, Music Club, S-2; Glee Club, S-2; Univer¬ sity of Pennsylvania Summer Band, ’35. We know “Biff” best as “Bear” Frankel, with a powerful body and a cheerful disposition. He is as playful as a cub and as thoughtful and as wise as Mr. Bruin himself. 24 DRAMATIS PERSON E June, 1936 " BENNY” 2527 N. Spangler Street Philadelphia, Pa. Orchestra, 7 A to S-2; Librarian, Or¬ chestra, S-l, S-2; Associate Editor, Girard News, J-2 to S-2; News Editor, Girard News, S-2; Vice-President, Journalist Qub, S-2; Silver Expert Typist Pin, S-l; Pitman Shorthand Pin; Assistant Con¬ cert Master of Orchestra, S-2; Third Honor Student. JOSEPH F. GILLICH " JOE " 3304 Rorer Street Philadelphia, Pa. Sergeant, Battalion, S-2; Glee Club, J-2 to S-2. “Gill” is a fast-moving fellow with a witty remark ever ready on the tip of his tongue when th e occasion calls for it. This good-natured critic of the class, " Benny,” always had his say in our af¬ fairs. However, when there was nothing to criticize, “Ben” was a quiet fellow, and one would hardly know that he was about. June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 25 THOMAS P. CLICK ••TOM” 648 E. Frederick Street Lancaster, Pa. Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Band, 7A to S-2; Second Lieutenant, Band, S-2; Secretary, Music Club, J-2, S-l; Swimming, ’34-’35, ’35-’36; Manager, Swimming Team, ’35- ’36. “Tom” is the sheik of the class. His long hours of practice on his clarinet were not spent in vain, for he captivated the heart of lady charming as the charmers of yore enchanted their snakes. HAROLD D. GOULD “CHINK” 29 Crocker Avenue Johnson City, N. Y. Band, 7 A to 1-2; Chess Team, ’36; Track Team, ’36. “Chink” believes that “when you’re smiling the whole world smiles with you.” That is the way we shall always remem¬ ber him—a friendly smile. 26 DRAMATIS PERSON E June, 1936 HARRY TROUTMAN GRISWOLD " GR1ZZY” 223 Albemarle Avenue Lansdowne, Pa. Band, 7A to S-2; Second Lieutenant, Band, S-2; Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Swim¬ ming Team, ’34-’35, ’35-’36; Orchestra, J-2 to S-2; Secretary, Woodworking Club, S-2. Bed is the boon for me, Though it’s better to work, than reap. But hear the words of “Ollio,” “It’s b etter than all to sleep!” Nevertheless we shall remember “Gris” as one of the most pleasant fellows in the class. « ' ■} ••PLUG” 4707 N. 3rd Street Philadelphia, Pa. Secretary, Camera Qub, S-2. “Every kingdom must have its jester” “Roundy” was the class jester. He be¬ lieved that laughing u ' as the best medicine for the mind and the body. With him laughing zvas contagious. His fat, chubby laugh zvill be one of cnir pleasant mem¬ ories. June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 27 " HEFFS” 1121 Eynon Street Scranton, Pa. Band, 7A to S-2; Orchestra, J-2 to S-2; Librarian, Music Club, J-2, S-l; Baseball, ’35. “HEIMY” 3625 N. Randolph Street Philadelphia, Pa. Sergeant, Battalion, J-2 to S-2; Glee Club, S-l to S-2; Vice-President, Modern Language Club, S-2. “Heffs” is a native of Scranton, and, “Help me, ‘Heinie,’ or 1 sink!” How lie’s proud of it even if you insist on call- many times he kept us from getting a ing him a coal miner. He is as loyal to “Spanish A” we cannot hope to tell, hut his home town as he is to his numerous he was a great help out of class as well as friends. in class. 28 DRAMATIS PERSON E June, 1936 EDWARD RUSSELL KE1M “ED” 100 N. Walnut Street Lewistown, Pa. “Ed” was able to enjoy silence until a few of his friends surrounded him. Then his adventurous and mischievous spirit would show itself. Some day we can look for “Ed” to climb to heights in the world which he has attained in our hearts. 3411 Jasper Street Philadelphia, Pa. Manager, Soccer Team, ’35; Secre¬ tary, Naturalists Club, J-l. There were many happy hours that we spent talking and laughing together. June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 29 ANGELO MASSIMIANI GEORGE MOWER 3052 N. 21st Street Philadelphia, Pa. Piano Class, 1-1 to S-2; Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Vice-President, French Club, S-l. “Have you heard this one?” We all answer yes, but “Mass” tells it anyway. Besides being a walking joke book he could on occasions be the president of the class, study hall monitor, and the best fighter in the class. Fort Washington, Pa. Band, 7A to S-2; First Sergeant, Band, S-2. “Ikey” is a quiet fellow, and we will always remember him as such. He speaks seldom, but with conviction and knowl¬ edge. 30 DRAMATIS PERSON E June, 1936 “OLDIE” Philadelphia, Pa. Glee Club, S-2. Oldie’s favorite tune is “Gloomy Sun¬ day,” a tune which expresses his mood exactly. But it is said that in every dark cloud there is a silver lining. “Oldie” goes the expression one better, however, for he is lined with gold. PETER OTTO E “OATS " 119 Harper Street Dunmore, Pa. Assistant Manager, Soccer Team, ’35; Secretary, French Club, S-l; Vice Pres¬ ident, French Club, S-2. Plumbers are not very well known, but when they are needed there is hardly a substitute. Yes, “Oats” was a plumber and wasn’t afraid of letting people know it. He did his job zvell, so well that even passage of years zvill not wear away his odd mannerisms which are soldered firmly to our hearts. June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSONS 31 ANTHONY PINO ALFRED G. PREIKSAT 1312 S. 13th Street 312 E. Louden Street Philadelphia, Pa. Philadelphia, Pa. First Prize, Single Competitive Drill, Sergeant, Battalion, J-2. J-2; Treasurer, Class J-2, S-l; Vice-Pres¬ ident, Art Club, S-2. If we were to look for a person with whom we could compare “Ouf,” we should not have to look far. Dr. Samuel We shall never forget this little friend Johnson stands out as a shining example, of ours. He has fastened himself to our “Alf” is large, rough, and rather witty, memories forever by his understanding He presents an unforgettable sight in the nature and helpfulness. electrical shop, in the classrooms, and in Mariner Hall. 32 DRAMATIS PERSON JE June, 1936 JOHN PUGLIESE “PUG” 1025 Mercy Street Philadelphia, Pa. Lieutenant, Battalion, S-l; Soccer, ’34, ’35 ; Basketball, ’34-’35; Basketball Team, ’35-’36; Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Vice-Pres¬ ident, Woodworking Club, S-2; Confer¬ ence Committee, S-2. If “Pug” is as good a dancer as some of the girls at our dances have made him out to be, then he wont have any trouble getting along—with the girls. JOHN EDWARD PURCELL " PURRY” 24 East Union Street Tamaqua, Pa. Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Band, 7A to S-2; Orchestra, J-2 to S-2; Captain, Band, S-2; Vice-President, Music Club, S-l; Secre¬ tary, Music Club, S-2; Swimming, ’32- ’33, ’34; Swimming Team, ’35-’36. We may show our respect for John in quoting from Whittier: “When faith is lost, when honor dies The man is dead.” June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 33 rjf 3 4 ERASMUS A. RANDICH “DICK” 1110 Marlborough Street Philadelphia, Pa. Lieutenant, Battalion, S-l; Cast: Don Juan’s Christmas Eve; President, French Club, S-l; Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Man¬ ager of Track Team, ’36; Cast: The Would-Be Gentleman. “Easy come, easy go.” This is a char¬ acteristic of Dick which we cannot over¬ look. He liked to lean on others, yet there was never a time he stood by and let some other unfortunate “sink.” EUGENE R. RAUP “ERP” Philadelphia, Pa. Glee Club, J-2 to S-2. “ When old pleasures die Some new ones are nigh.” Here is a man of widely varying inter¬ ests and ideas. From air pilot to tap danc¬ er his ambitions range. Where he will eventually direct his talent and effort we don’t know, but we wish him success in whatever line he chooses to pursue. 34 DRAMATIS PERSON E June, 1936 HOWARD B. REIFSNYDER “RIFF” 24 N. 23rd Street Mount Penn Reading, Pa.

JOHN J. REINHEIMER " JOHN” 57 Lackawanna Avenue East Stroudsburg, Pa. Track, ’34, ’35. If John can leap as far in life as he can in the broad jump, we need have no fears for his future. " Of every noble work, the silent part is best, Of all expressions, that which cannot be expressed.” So it was with " Riff.” He was liked by every one, and yet we are unable to pick out the source of his strange magnetic potver. June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 35 JOHN RICHARDS “BOOKY " 278 Carey Avenue Wilkes-Barre, Pa. Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Band, 7 A to 2-1. WALTER G. RODGERS “DODGE” Philadelphia, Pa. Soccer, ’33; Basketball, ’33-’34, ’34-’35; Baseball, ’34, ’35; Soccer Team, ’34, ’35; President, Chemistry Club, S-2; Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Cast: Don Juan’s Christ¬ mas Eve. “Booky” was a name which was easily derived. If the library should burn to the ground; an extensive catalog of the books could be secured by consulting “Dcc’je” was one of our outstanding “Booky.” Credit must be given, how- athletes. He never seemed to be pressed ever, for his extensive reading shown for time. Whenever every one else was plainly in his studies and in his large in a hurry, he nonchalantly brought up vocabulary. the rear — among a group of his young admirers. It was his carefree, unassum¬ ing nature that won him his many f riends. 36 DRAMATIS PERSON E June, 1936 “ROSIE 2435 Coral Avenue Philadelphia, Pa. Band, 7 A to S-2; Orchestra, 7A to S-2; Glee Club, S-l to S-2; Junior Life Sav¬ ing Certificate, 1-2; Silver Expert Typist Pin, S-l; Literary Club, S-l to S-2; Uni¬ versity of Pennsylvania Summer Band, ’35; National Honor Society, S-2. “The love of learning, the sequestered nooks And all the sweet serenity of hooks.” “Rosie” has sincerely appreciated his schoolwork, and he has achieved high standing as a scholar of the class. Con¬ gratulations. RAYMOND F. RUFF “RAY” 2239 N. Howard Street Philadelphia, Pa. Secretary, Woodworking Club, J-l; Band, 7A to 2-2; Vice-President, Wood¬ working Club, J-2. Ray also was one of the quieter fellows of the class. However, when he said something, it was well worth listening to. June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 37 “DOUG” 410 S. 22nd Street Philadelphia, Pa. Band, 7 A to 2-2; Cast: Stephen Girard; Secretary, Dramatic Club, S-l; Vice-Pres¬ ident, Dramatic Club, S-2; Cast: Don Juan’s Christmas Eve; Second Prize, Thrift Essay, 2-2; Soccer Team, ’35. PARKE RYNIER " EARS” Gordonville, Pa. “Ears” never greeted any one but with a smile and a joke. It was mainly his ability that put Bordeaux Hall ahead in athletic achievement. “Doug” proved himself to be an accurate judge of men’s clothing styles. His good looks went very well with his meticulous mode of dress. 38 DRAMATIS PERSON E June, 1936 ROBERT J. SALDUTTE “SAL” 7155 Clover Lane Stonehurst Hills Upper Darby, Pa. Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Soccer, ’35; Basketball, ’35-’36; Cast: Stephen Gir¬ ard; Cast: Don Juan’s Christmas Eve. It’s funny how “Sal” was able to avoid getting a “G” so long. But as you know there are restrictions upon eligibility. Nevertheless “Sal” was a fine athlete, a soaring tenor, and a graceful dancer. CHARLES L. SANDS " CHOLLY” 618 E. 3rd Street Berwick, Pa. Track Team, ’35; Second Prize, Wash¬ ington Essay, S-2; Associate Editor, Girard Magazine, S-2. A smile was his token of friendship to the undergraduates, to his classmates, and to the visitors of Girard, for it must be remembered that Charlie was the star guide of our school. His quiet thought¬ ful smile will always hold a pleasing place in our hearts. June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 39 THOMAS SCHLOSSER ROBERT FREDERICK SCHNEIDER Sharpnack and Bayer Streets Germantown Philadelphia, Pa. Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Piano Class, 6B to S-2; Orchestra, S-2; Soccer Numerals, ' 35; Vice-President, Music Club, S-2; Silver Expert Typist Pin, J-l ; Gold Expert Typist Pin, J-2. “The little things are what count.” And when Tom says that it is the little things that count, all that one has to do is look at him. Neat clothes often make the man — but it goes much deeper than that with Tom. 1457 N. Dover Street Philadelphia, Pa. Orchestra, 1-1 to S-2; Student Leader, Orchestra, S-2; Band, 7A to S-2; Uni¬ versity of Pennsylvania Summer Band, ’35; Junior Life Saving Certificate, 1-2; Swimming, ’32-’33, ’33-’34; Swimming Team, ’34-’35, ’35-’36; Girard 100 Yard Breast Stroke Record,’36; Record Medley Relay Team, ’35-’36; Co-Captain, Swim¬ ming Team, ’36; Silver Expert Typist Pin, J-2; Gold Expert Typist Pin, S-l; Vice- President, Naturalist Club, J-l; Secretary, Woodworking Club, S-l. Behind all his foolishness there is a seriousness, which, when displayed, never fails to leave us perplexed. This was shown in his work in the Commercial Department. Our only hope is that “Reg¬ gie” will be as successful in his career as he was in the world of word signs and short forms. 40 DRAMATIS PERSON E June, 1936 “JOE” 4708 Chester Avenue Philadelphia, Pa. Glee Club, J-2-S-2; Secretary, Art Club, J-2; Sergeant, Battalion, S-2; First Prize, Individual Competitive Drill, S-l; Art Editor, Commencement Record; Band, 7 A to 2-2; Class Speaker; Cast: The Would-Be Gentleman. ANGELO L. SPINELLI " SPIN” 2339 S. 16th Street Philadelphia, Pa. National Honor Society, S-l to S-2; Secretary, National Honor Society, S-2; Secretary, Class, J-l, J-2, S-l; Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Band, 7A to S-2; Associate Editor, Girard Magazine, J-2 to S-2; President, Literary Club, S-2; Second Penmanship Prize, 2-2; Associate Editor, Commencement Record. Joe is a talented and quite versatile fellow. We know his art through this book and his dramatic skill f rom his work on the stage. But to know him complete¬ ly one must meet him at a more informal moment, when he is whirling his body into a wild tap dance, or yodeling a cow¬ boy tune, or even speaking one of his foreign languages. He did things without having to be told and did them conscientiously. “Spin” was the hardest worker in the class. Hc was always a willing helper, never tired of “giving a hand.” His reward should be great success. June, 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 41 CHARLES STELLO “CHAS” 347 E. 146th Street Bronx, N. Y. Glee Club, S-l to S-2; Sergeant, Bat¬ talion, S-2. The daring young man on the flying trapeze had nothing on “Chas.” He is quite daring and, although we have no trapeze, you should see him work out on the rings. ARTHUR C. SWASEY " ART” 7222 Brent Road Upper Darby, Pa. Sergeant in Battalion. According to Thomas Fuller, “There would be no great ones if there were no little ones;” and Browning declares, ‘“We find great things are made of little things.” Just take a look at “Art” and draw your own conclusions. 42 DRAMATIS PERSON E June, 1936 “WALT” 108 Third Street Mifflinburg, Pa. President, Class, J-2; National Honor Society, J-2 to S-2; President National Honor Society, S-2; Captain, Battalion, S-2; Band, 7 A to 1-2; Cast: Stephen Girard; Cast: Don Juan’s Christmas Eve; President, Dramatic Club, S-2; Baseball, ’34; Baseball Team, ’35; Basketball, ’34- ’35 ; Basketball Team, ’35-’36; Soccer, ' 33; Soccer Team, ’34, ' 35. RALPH WEIRBACH " DUTCH” Lansdale, Pa. Business Manager, Class, J-2; Soccer, ’34, ’35. “Dutch” is a quiet fellow outside his own circle of friends, but when some sort of athletics calls him he always leads the pack. One of Walt’s mottoes seems to be, “Whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well.” We found this character¬ istic dominating his spirit, and many times the job of leadership was placed on his broad shoulders—in the classroom, on the campus, and in our Honor Society. He’s a leader of whom we shall always boast. June. 1936 DRAMATIS PERSON E 43 JOHN H. YEAGER ROBERT A. YOUNG 401 E. Cranberry Avenue Hazleton, Pa. Because of his determination Jack will prove himself to be a “live wire” in his chosen field of electricity. 2052 W. Glenwood Avenue Philadelphia, Pa. Glee Club, J-2 to S-2; Cast: Jean Val- jean; Supply Sergeant, Battalion, S-l; Sergeant Major, Battalion, S-2. “Men for their sins Have shaving, too, Entailed upon their chins A daily plague.” — Byron. “Boscoe” had a tough time maintaining his schoolgirl complexion with that awful black beard. Better watch out, “Boscoe,” that beard must be kept short or you ' re apt to singe it some day.
