ENGLISH DEPARTMENT Mr. Joseph Devlin Halpem, (Mrs.) Evelyn Chairman, English Dept. Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. And still they gazed and still the wonder grew, that one head should carry all it knew. Litrature is my utopia, here 1 am not disenfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet gracious discourse of my book friends! They talk to me with¬ out embarrasment or awkwardness. — A student in “Paradise” Francendese, (Mrs.) Janet Mr. William Stein Mr. Robert Long Chairman, Social Studies Dept. The Historian is a prophet looking backwards. History is only a record of crimes and misfortunes. History, a distillation of rumor. What is History but a fable agreed upon? — Except from a term paper written by Robert Me Clennen (only joking, Mr. Long!) Mr. Edward Vavalo Zeil, (Dr.) WilUam Every artist was first an amateur. A picture is a poem without words. It is clever, but is it art? Art is the imposing of a pattern on experience, and our aes¬ thetic enjoyment in recognition of the pattern. Everything passes. Robust art alone is eternal. The bust out¬ lasts the citadel. He is the greatest artist who has embodied, in the sun of his works, the greatest number of the greatest ideas. Every artist writes his own biography.

Olivastri LIBRARY RESOURCE CENTER Mr. D. Rodilis At the entrance of the Library building, housing the Library Resource Center, an inscription greets the visitor: HERE IS THE HISTORY OF MAN’S HUNGER FOR TRUTH, GOODNESS AND BEAUTY LEADING HIM FROM BONDAGE TO FREEDOM. It’s this curiosity of man that causes him to question, and investigate while trying to exist with the elements. The LRC is charged with two most important objectives: —Help direct curiosity of the Girard students —Prepare students, with skills enough to investigate enevitable puzzlements after graduation- and make their quest for knowledge a habbit. This year the LRC has indeavored to meet these objectives by continuing the daily classes and night study. Also, the beginnings os an educational TV project has been part of its involvement in school act¬ ivities. Act 195 has provided the LRC with many useful units of equipment and materials—from fossil collections to books on rocket assembly. Girard College has one of the most comprehensive Resource Centers in the area. Fot they can conquer who believe they can.

For the first time Americans saw eiqierts from all over the world, and the sport caught their fancy. Up till that time there had been little downhill skiing and no slalom in this country. After the Olympics, the demand for downhill skiing resulted in the building of hundreds of miles of trails in New England and New York and, as the craze swept west, in the Rockies and Sierras. Ski tows and aerial and ramways followed winter resorts opened up: vilages awakened from hibernation to become snowy boom townsj European instructors by the score ceune to establish schoolsj here sporting-goods manufacturers reported sales of skiing equipment at the head of the list. No sport has grown as fast as skiing did in the thirties. STUDENT COUNCIL Every nation has a government that it deserves. A house divided against itself can not stand. What government is the best?

The game was, alter all, one of the first to be played here The famous 1 0 between Wnp and Rutgers-which is claim«l to be the start of inter;ollegiatelfootbltr rn fact clearly a soccer game. The teles were based on those drawn up in 1863 by the IZ’ football association- and in England the word ‘footbaU” means soccer! The origins of soccer have been variously traced back to ancient Greece and Rome or Egypt or China. No one reaUy knows where it all started-recreaction involving kicking and chasing a round object seems always to have been a part of man’s life. But it is that 1863 date that is held to mark the birth of the modem game. When the London football Association published its rules, it gave soccer its offical title: Association Football. The woid soccer is believed to be derived from Association, first shortened to Assoc., then, coirupted to soccer. And today in the words of one enthusiast, “The sun never sets on soccer.” Sept. 18 St. Joseph’s Prep.H 3:30 Sept. 20 Frankford H.S.A 3:15 Sept. 21 Penn-Jersey Soccer Jamboree. at Solebury School.10:30 A.M.

Jones cross country For years cross-country and track and field events have been misunderstood by all sports fans. They know that track and field events are considered spring sports and cross-country, a winter sport, but the diffeiences, though obvious, have confused. The history of long distance running (cross-country) in the United States is not particularly noteworthy since foot racing, like professional wrestling today, was not a reputable sport. Before the Civil War when foot racing was in vogue, many races were discovered to be fixed. As a result the sport practically died out The late nineteenth century was the era of professional sports or¬ ganizations (such as the American Hockey Association and the National Baseball League); yet there was no professional organization for cross-country.

However, wrestr ling as a sport is said to have been popular among the Sumerians some five thousand year s ago. Later the ancient Greek and Romanss were devotees of the sport and glorified the muscular young man who took part in the activity. Wrestling continued as a favorite sport through the ages. In medieval Europe it was widely pop¬ ular and many international tournaments were held. In the United States wrestling has taken two directoins. College wrestling is a true representa¬ tive of the grappling art. Professional wrestling, however, has suffered from an overdose of show¬ manship and has become such a phony activity that it cannot legally call itself a sport but must be billed as an exhibition. College wrestling has been kept pure by the AAU and remains a sport in which much skill and stamina are required. T llrs. rec. 5 Jenkintown (scrimmage) .A 3:15 V rGStllDQ Tues.

Coach: Mr. Richard Powers It’s impossible to say how many millions of people in the United States eind other countries enjoy the sport of swimming. Most people £njoy the water, and it’s difficult to believe today that iince in man’s history water was a natural enemy. There was, of course, a great amount of swimming going on long before -t was thought of as a ®Port. Credit for turning this survival art into a sport goes to the British. The first competitive swimming of which there is any record occured in 1837 in London. This first swimming meet was sponsored by a group calling themselves the National Swimming Society of England. In those days the only swimming stroke known to the English was the breast stroke. In 1844 when a group of North American Indians were invited to participate in a swimming meet in London, the English learned something new. To them it looked as if the Indians thrashed the water violent¬ ly with both arms and legs. The Indians were using a stroke that later became known as the crawl. In 1878 Frederic Cavill, an Englishman living in Australia, visited the South Sea Islands. He . noticed the natives using the double overhand, but also noticed the kicking motion they made with their feet. He brought the stroke back to Australia and began teaching it. The stroke became known as the Australian Crawl. In 1912 there were four swimming styles recognized at the Olympics: free style, back stroke, butterfly breast stroke, and orthodox breast stroke .The U. Si. swimmers were recognized for con¬ tributing diving to the sport. swimming Wed. Hec. 4 George School .H 3:30 Thurs. Dec. 12 Harriton High School.A 3:30 Tues.

Callahan basketball Mr. James Naismith is the inventor of the only sport purely American in origin. Basketball is one of the few sports that is not the result of a long evolutionary process. It was the brain child of one man, who was, incidentally, bom in Canada. He taught physical education at the Y.M.C.A.. Training College in Springfield, Mass. At the end of the football season in 1891, Dr. Nai¬ smith put his mind to work devising an indoor recreation which would appeal to the football play¬ ers, who were reluctant to face a winter of calisthenics and gymnastics. Some kind of team game would be the thing. A soccer ball sowld do as a starter, and the goal should be out of reach so that men playing in scanty gym suits on hard floors wouldn’t get hurt in mix-ups at the mouth of the goal. Skill, rather than force, would be stressed, he reasoned. After some experimenting. Dr. Nai¬ smith had a couple of old plach baskets fastened to the railing ot the gym balcony and directed the boys to shoot at them with the soccer ball. At first teams consisted of nine men, then seven and finally five. Wed. Dec. 4 George 5 Jiool.H 4:15 Sat. Dec. 7 Penn-Jersey Baskeibaii Jamboree at Pennington.3:00 Tues. Dec. 10 Pa.

Fulton ba?5rball Around the end of the 18th centuiy, school boys along the Eastern coast began bat-and-ball games of various styles, according to the number of players involved. One of the earliest of these games, one-old-cat was simplicity itself. Only one base and three players were required: pitcher, catcher, and batter. With more players, the game needed more bases and it became two-old-cat and so on. When there were enough players to form sides, it was called rounders, town ball, goal ball, or base ball, depending upon where it was played. Whetever the name of the game, the garner had one thing m common: the batter hit the ball and ran for the base, or goal, while the fielders tried to put him out by catching the ball on the fly or by fielding it and touching him with it before he got to the base. On June 19, 1846 the first match game of baseball was played at Elysian Fields between the Knickerbockers and the New Yorks.

Ehrig, R. Andrews, Mr. B. Seeber t tennis In 1873, at a Christmas party in Wales, Major Walter C. Wingfields introduced a game which he called “Sphairistike or Lawn Tennis.” With him he had a set of rules and the implements of play. The Major’s game, an outdoor adaptation of the ancient game of court tennis, was played on an hour glass shaped court, with a box in the center of one court for the service area. Outdoor tennis had been played in England before the Major had introduced the game and his rule book. Neverthe¬ less, he took out a patent on Sphairistike, claiming he was the inventor of the game. Whether he was or not, the awkward Greek mane, meaning “play ball” w s soon dropped, and the game of¬ ficially became lawn tennis when the Marylebone Cricket Club issued its rules in 1875. This was the real beginning of lawn tennis, which today is the most popular court game ever devised. Thurs. April 1 Roxborough H.S. (scrimmage)H 3:30 Tues. April 15 Vallijy Forge Military Acad.

The hurdles streched all the way across the track, and when a man knocked one down it was down for all. Runners used the standing start even after C. H. Sherrill, a Yale sprinter of the late 80’s, introduced the crouching start and ran away from everybody. The New York Athletic Club was the pioneer in amateur track and field in this country. In 1871, three years after the N.. Y. A. C. was founded, the club built the first cinder track in AMERICA and invited track athletes from all over to compete at its annual games.
