MARCKS Serving in the Armed Forces COMET Hold High the Flag The American flag from the day of its birth Was an emblem of freedom to man o’er the earth; Thru the years, the oppressed have fled to our shore To abide ’neath the folds of the flag we adore. Since Pearl Harbor day, the dictators have tried To challenge the liberty that’s e’er been our pride. But rising to serve throughout the broad land Stands American Youth—a united band; Determined that all oppression must cease That mankind may live in safety and peace. In the ranks with the best, with ideals high Are the boys and the girls from our own Nazareth High. The boys join the arm, navy, marines; The girls do their share in auxiliary scenes. We’ll man the destroyers, the planes and the t anks And shoulder to shoulder we ' ll fill in the ranks, We’ll fight for our freedom, determined to win And unfurl our Old Glory o’er Tokyo and Berlin. i Ralph Stocker l THE COMET GERALD ALTEMOSE “Altemose” Happy-go-lucky and genial are two adjectives that fit Jerry. Boy scout work and prize fights take up most of his spare time. You never see Gerald without also seeing Carl and Charlie with him. He intends to become an electrician if he isn’t taken into the Army. Track (1) (2); Senior Play, Electrician (3); Science Club (2). I ELAINE AUDENRIED “Rusty” The first impression of “Rusty” is that she is small, neat, pleasant, but very quiet. However, appearances are deceiving for she always brings life and fun into any crowd. Two of her main interests are skating and danc¬ ing. Have you noticed that “Rusty” is quite interested in the Navy? Commercial Club (1); Glee Club (1) (2) (3); A Cap- pella Choir (3); Operetta (1); May Festival (3). MARION BACHMAN “Marion” Fight! Team fight! Yes, it’s N. H. S.’s snappy head cheerleader, adding pep to the cheering section. Marion played a splendid role as Mrs. Miller in the senior play, “Young April.” She is very active in sports. When there’s merrymaking and dancing in the offing, this lassie is always in the center of the crowd. With her pleasing personality, Marion should be an outstanding “Woman in White.” Basketball (1) (2) (3); Hockey (1) (2) (3); Baseball (1) (2) (3); Blue and White (1) (2) (3); Cheerleader (2) (3); Volley Ball, Captain (1) (2) (3). VIRGINIA BARTRON “Ginny” Happy-go-lucky Ginny hails from Hecktown. Her meat is a roller skating rink or a group of boys. Ginny is very active in sports, especially hockey and basketball. She tells us her chief ambition is to have a home of her own and we believe it, for her correspondents include soldiers, sailors, and marines. Commercial Club (1); Hockey (1; (2) (3); Volley Ball (1) (2); Captain (3); Basketball (1) (2) (3); Base¬ ball (1) (2) (3). STERLING BATH “Sterling” Sterling-—pesty, dreamy, and sometimes quiet—is one of our students from Belfast. Outside of being a tease in room 29, he is sincere in his work, even if he “doesn’t get it” sometimes. At present Sterling’s attention is focused on a dark-haired sophomore from his own home town. Football (2). GLADYS BEAL “Reds” “Well, I just can’s get it!”—Gladys’ puzzled expres¬ sions are the source of enjoyment for chemistry and Ger¬ man students; nevertheless, she doesn’t give up very easily. Her trim figure plus her pleasing personality will be two of her greatest assets in aiding her to become one of our “women in white.” Commercial Club (1); Dramatic Club (1); Blue and White Standard (2), Associate Editor (3); Senior Play, Minor (3); Prom, Refreshment Committee (2). THE COMET ROCCO BELLO “Rocy” “Rocy,” as he is known by his friends, is quite an ac¬ complished musician. According to this fellow, school is an unnecessary evil. When the 3:30 buzzer rings, Rocy’s up and out on his way home with never a worry. Never¬ theless, Rocy is an all-round good fellow, and may soon be wearing the khaki of the Army. THERESA BELSO “Terry” Theresa is our little blonde friend from Dexter. Al¬ though she has many girl friends, her friendliness ends here, for she remains aloof to the opposite sex. We won¬ der if “Joe” doesn’t interest her a tiny bit? Her skill and eagerness on the hockey field and the basketball floor indicate her vitality and enjoyment of sports. Hockey (1) (2), Captain (3); Volley Ball (1) (3), Captain (2); Basketball (1) (2) (3); Baseball (1) (2); Commercial Club (1) (2) (3). TRUMAN BITTENBENDER “Spit” “Spit,” an athletic type of boy, is a Hecktown lad. As half-back on the football team, he helped the team win many a victory. School isn’t Truman’s first love, for his main interest centers around a certain miss from Macada. Football (1) (2) (3); Class basketball (1) (2) (3). JANE BRODY “Jane” Now meet Jane, one of the three associate editors of the Comet staff. She is likewise circulation manager of the Blue and White Standard and an active member of Glee Club. Jane, always smiling, always happy, and always cooperative, hopes to become a nurse.

PAULINE CHRISTIE “Polly” Blonde hair Brown eyes A cheery smile Mix these together and you have “Polly.” She enjoys all sports and likes ice-skating. She and “Whizz” can usually be found strolling up and down the hall at 3:30. Polly’s ambition is to become a nurse. Hockey (1); Volley Ball (1) (3); Basketball (1) (3); Baseball (1); Band (2) (3). EDITH CLAUSS “Edie” Little but spunky! Edith’s plump but lively form, dark hair, flashing smile, and cheery greeting attract the dull¬ est person’s eye. Her liveliness accounts for her ability in sports. Friendliness is her greatest asset. Put her on a cannibal island, and, we believe, even the cannibals will love her in a friendly way. Commercial Club (1) (2) (3); Hockey (1) (2) (3); Baseball (1) (2); Basketball (1) (2) (3); Volley Ball (1) ' 2) (3). 1343 TH- rrr THE COMET BESSIE COLVER “Bessie” Neatly curled dark hair, attractive clothes, and a pleas¬ ant and jolly disposition make Bessie an attractive per¬ son. Bessie is very active in first aid work. She enjoys crocheting and singing. Bessie hopes to take up nursing. Glee Club (1); Commercial Club (1). CARL DAVIDSON “Lem” The second of the three musketeers is Carl. Quiet and good-natured, he is well-liked by those who really know him. He is a good boxer for th at is his chief delight. After graduation, Carl wants to join the Navy. Science Club (2); Track (2). SHIRLEY DECK “Deckie” Reserved and shy, that’s Shirley. She may be shy to many of her pals, but “Carie” knows her better. This efficient senior should get ahead quickly in the business world for she follows direction promptly and has the gift of choosing good-looking clothes. Shirley’s auburn hair makes everyone sit up and take notice. She enjoys sports and plays with much fervor.

Business Manager (3); Hockey (1) (2) (3) ; Baseball (1); Band, Color Guard (2). MATILDA DEUTSCH “Matty” This blonde, blue-eyed lassie gives one a good impres¬ sion at first glance. In all of her activities, both in school and out, she has shown herself a capable leader. Her quickness on the gym floor has scored many a point for her basketball team. Her marks indicate that she spends a good deal of her time studying. Matilda’s ambition is to become a secretary.

Hiking, horseback riding, and basketball are only a few of her favorite sports. Writing letters and collecting pictures of movie stars are her favorite pastimes. Leona is fond of school and would like to become someone’s secretary. Volley Ball (1) (2) (3); Basketball (1) (3), Captain (2); Baseball (1) (2) (3); Commercial Club (1) (3); Craft Club (3); Comet Staff, Photography Editor (3). WILLIAM DRUMM “Will” Bill is the big, silent tackle who played so well on our football team. “Will” is not especially keen about school work, but nevertheless he manages to get his work in and keep out of trouble. After 3:30 he is usually at “Swavely’s.” Bill is interested in basketball and coaches his own team. Football (1) (2) (3); Class Basketball (1) (2) (3). THE COMET RUTH EBERTS “Eppie” Here’s our little giggle-box in person. Petite, fair complexion, brown hair, and an ever-ready smile—these describe Eppie. She specializes in the latest jokes. The Navy will greatly appreciate Ruth as one of its future women-in white. Operetta (1); Glee Club (1) (3); A Cappella Choir (1) (3); Blue and White (3); Music Festival (3); Senior Play, Costume Committee (3); Comet Staff, Personality Editor (3). NELSON ENGLER “Nellie” “Always be as mischievous as possible and hardly ever work” seems to be Nellie’s motto. This not very am¬ bitious boy hails from Hecktown, where he spends his evenings loafing at the village store. He, no doubt, will join the Army after graduation. Class Basketball (1) (2) (3). YVONNE FLYTE “Yvonne” Yvonne is one of our serious, studious, and dependable gals. Although she is very quiet, her friends know her wittiness and enjoy being with her when a little fun is needed. She is interested in commercial subjects, and wishes to become a bookkeeper in the future. KATHERINE FOCHT “Kitty” Alive, full of pep, and vitality—those are the charac¬ teristics that best describe Katherine. By the way, do you have your life insurance paid? You do? Well, then you can ride (at your own risk) with Katherine in her Chrysler. Seriously, though, Katherine, have you been affected by the rubber and gasoline shortage? Dramatic Club (1) (3); Commercial Club (3); Blue and While Standard (3). LEONA FOGEL “Leo” “Leo,” one of our peppy cheerleaders, participates in many sports with vim and vigor. Wherever there is activity and fun, there “Leo” can be found. The basket¬ ball captain is quite an attraction, isn’t he, Leona?

JOHN FRANCZAK “Johnnie” Shyly blushing, Johnnie smiles brightly when teased about the girls. Although he tries to avoid them, this handsome fellow finds this difficult to do. Perhaps, he wants to concentrate on his studies, but we know he doesn’t dislike the feminine attractions of his class. 1943 THE COMET SUE FRANCZAK “Sue” Here’s brown-eyed Sue with the lovely long eye lashes. Sue serves as photography editor for the Comet and is also an active member of Dramatic Club. Since Sue is pleasant and friendly, she should be an excellent nurse. Basketball (1); Science Club (2); Dramatic Club (3 ; Baseball (3); Comet Staff, Photography Editor (3). BETTY JANE FREY “Betty Jane” Here’s another of our cheerleaders and one of our best dressed seniors. Tall, blonde, and a pleasant per¬ sonality—all describe Betty Jane. Although she works at Murphy’s after school, she still finds time to partici¬ pate in sports.

MARION FREY “Mamrnie” In Caesar’s time all roads led to Rome; the modernistic version is that all talking leads to Marion. Marion says she hopes to become a Florence Nightingale someday; that is, if a certain subject beginning with a “C” and ending with a “Y” doesn’t prove an obstacle. Dramatic Club (1); Glee Club (3); Music Festival (3). MARY FULS “Mary” “Hi, kids!” This is Mary’s habitual greeting to her pals. Recently, she became an assistant-leader of one of the Girl Scout Troops of Nazareth, and is proving her self capable in her duties. Mary is a good commeicial student, and after graduation, she intends to become a WAAC.

Commercial Club (1); Student Council (1); Class Bas¬ ketball (1) (2); Senior Play, Minor (3). HERMINA GOTTO “Minnie” Dark hair, brown eyes, and a slender figure spells “Minnie.” Her congenial nature has added charm on many occasions. Minnie is an industrious individual and quite interested in the commercial subjects. Who’s that fellow in an army suit? Um-m, that would be telling!!! Commercial Club (1) (2) (3). HELEN GROLLER “Helen” “Are you kiddin’?”—that’s Helen’s pet phrase. An¬ other of Bath’s contributions to Nazareth High, Helen says all her interests lie in commercial subjects, and she hopes to do secretarial work someday. However, we have our doubts, since the Army and Helen keep the postman quite busy. Magazine Campaign (1). MARGARET GUTIERREZ “Goody” There goes Margaret swishing her long brown hair and flashing her big brown eyes. Margaret is a good art stu¬ dent and shows it by her color combinations. She is a staff member of the Blue and White Standard, an NYA worker, and an active sports participant. “Goody” hopes to become an interior decorator.

DANA HAPPEL “Dana” Our short and chubby Dana hails from Tatamy. Dana should make a good secretary. Her art ability earned her a place on the Comet Art Staff. Besides being fond of dancing, Dana simply adores flying with that certain flyer from the Tatamy Airport.

ABBIE HARIEGLE “Aobie” Serious but pleasant! Abbie is one of our quieter classmates who finds joy in the little things of life. In¬ stead of hockey, she’d rather crochet; instead of dancing, she’d rather embroider. One of her enjoyable pastimes is writing to boys in the service. However, Abbie is quite enthusiastic about taking pictures. When you want your wedding pictures taken, don’t forget “Abbie’s Studio.” Commercial Club (1). JAMES HARRON “Jimmie” Curly, blond hair and a wolfish whistle, plus his con¬ stant teasing indicates what Jimmie is like. He is a like¬ able chap and proved his popularity by being elected president of the senior class and of the Student Council. Jimmie played the part of Brian in the senior play. Watch out, girls, when you see Jimmie sporting a Marine uniform, because he has made plans with Uncle Sam to enter that branch of the service.

Al¬ ways ready, willing, and able to help someone out of a tight spot. Out of school, her interests lie in Bethlehem, and she spends much of her time there.

CATHERINE HECKMAN “Kathy” Working takes up some of Catherine’s time, but she devotes a great deal more to her main interests, music and organizations for young people. Commercial Club (1). RUTH HERTZOG “Ruth” Ruth—tall, dark haired, and dark eyed—hails from Cherry Hill. She appears quiet on the surface, but that is only on the surface. How can anyone be quiet when their favorite sport is roller-skating? By the way, Ruth, has the Coast Guard been restored to health? Commercial Club (1) (2): Craft Club (1) (2) (3). ANITA HEYER " ‘Anita” “Guard her!”—it’s Anita at one of her favorite sports. An all-round athlete, Anita derives some pleasure irom school, in the field of sports, since she frankly admits that studying doesn’t agree with her. Anita plans to attend an industrial arts school after graduation. That is, if the Navy doesn’t intervene.

RICHARD H.OCH “Hochie” In addition to a good physique, “Hochie” possesses an amazing intelligence which has constantly kept him on the honor roll. As the quarterback and captain of the football team, and as a varsity guard on the basketball squad, he has often helped Nazareth in defeating its op¬ ponents. “Hochie” is very popular with his fellow stu¬ dents.

Secretary and Treasurer (1); Tennis Tournament (1) (2); Prom, Decorating Commit¬ tee (2); Athletic Council, President (3). FLORENCE HOFER “Lou” Usually smiling and pleasant, Florence seldom shows a grumpy face to anyone. She has many friends and never lets one down. Her stenographic ability and readi¬ ness to please leads us to believe she may someday be the President’s secretary. Then, if the President has any leisure time, Florence may teach him to Jitterbug, for she is light on her feet as well as on the typewriter keys.

V THE COMET ROBERT HOUCK “Bobby” The fair sex holds a great attraction for Bobby. Per¬ haps that is the reason for his being tired and sleepy in classes. He is not too studious, but is comical, and is a constant tease which makes him a welcome addition to any group of students. Uncle Sam holds a future in the Marines. Glee Club (1); Science Club (1), President (2); Dra¬ matic Club (1). CHARLENE HOUGH “Houyhie” This attractive miss with blonde hair and blue eyes wears good-looking clothes, which are topped off with a pleasant smile. “Houghie” is quite an ace in sports and in P. D. classes she can hold her own. She wishes to be¬ come a “Woman in White.” Could Stockertown inter¬ fere with your plans, “Houghie”?

JENNY HURYN “Jennifer” Quiet, well dressed, an excellent student, a good friend, and a very capable cheerleader best describe “Jen¬ nifer.” Her high scholastic standing and consistently good work make her the pride of the faculty; however, Jenny does not neglect her extra school activities. As one of our cheerleaders, she has helped our teams on to victory.

I MARGARET HUTNIK “Margaret” Margaret greets everyone with a cheery “hello.” Her smile and sunny disposition have won her many friends. With her many outside interests we wonder where she gets the time to study, for Margaret is the competent typist for the Lion’s Club. With her ability and pleasing personality, Margaret should go far in the business world. Class Treasurer (2) (3); Blue and White, Typist (2); Magazine Campaign, Manager (3). IRENE JOHNSON “Tiny” This petite miss with big gray eyes, black hair, and a lovely soprano voice is active in the Glee Club, A Cap- pella Choir, Forum Club, and also in sports.

JACQUELINE JONES “Jackie” Meet this plump, little brunette, one of our good art students from Bath. She is a very efficient co-editor of the Blue and White Standard.

SHIRLEY KACHLINE “Shirley” Shirley gives one the impression that she is shy, but she really isn’t to those of us who know her. Although dancing takes up much of Shirley’s time, she manages to do her homework. Shirley goes out for all sports and is very active on the gym floor. She would like to be¬ come a secretary but something else comes first. Come on, ’fess up, Shirley! Volley Ball (1) (2) (3); Basketball (1) (2) (3); Base¬ ball (1); Commercial Club (1) (2) (3). ROBERT KAHLER “Bob” Tall, dark, and handsome with a pleasing personality is this lad. Bob is a good commercial student and an eager participant in sports. He has been practicing box¬ ing steadily and shows a great interest in this art. In the military line, Bob wishes to become a “devil-dog.” Football (3); Class Basketball (3); Track (2); Com mercial Club (1) (2); Class, Vice President (3), ALLEN KALE “Kaley” Buried somewhere among the pages of a book, you’ll find Allen reading about airplanes, hunting, or baseball. No, he isn’t a bookworm, for he always manages to keep the girls around him in hysterics. Maybe that’s why Allen dislikes studying and shows a decided preference for the 15 minute periods.

Upon entering the dining car, we immediately spotted two marines conversing with an air cadet. Approaching their table, we recognized the marines as Robert Ziegler and James Harron, and the air cadet as William Quinter. We were all enthusiastic when we learned that their des¬ tination coincided with our own. During the course of our meal, we naturally turned back the pages of time, reminiscing about our fond memories of happy school days and our care-free classmates. Ten years had passed since that June 17 in 1943, when solemn and dignified, we had been together for the last time as seniors. We learned from these boys the various paths our friends had taken. Gerald Altemose is head electrician at the Metropolitan Opera Company where Lorraine McConnell is starring in the role of Elsa in Wagner’s Lohengrin. Margaret Gutierrez has recently redecorated the study of the newly elected U. S. Senator, Ralph Stocker, to whom Matilda Deutsch is private secretary.

At this point a colored porter interrupted to inform us that we had reached the city of stars. As we all left the train together, we suddenly heard the roar of a motor and looking up we saw a huge airliner which we were to discover later had Ernest Lahr and Caroline Repsher as co-pilots and Lois Rohn and June Kline as stewardesses We were both thrilled and surprised when the giant bird landed at the Lahr-Wagner Airport, only a mile from the depot. Hurrying to the airport, we learned from Joseph Skrapits, who is training pilots, that among his fellow-workers are Richard Laubach and Sherwood Silfies, commercial pilots, and Ralph Lindenmoyer, head mechanic. As the passengers descended from the plane, we spotted Doris Trine who has recently translated into English Adolf Hitler’s “Meine Fehler.” She was accompanied by hei new husband, Dr. Hirnbohrer, the famous German brain specialist. Gioia Michael, another one of the passengers, has come to Hollywood to study styles for Sacks, Fifth Avenue, New York City.

As a part of this great movement, the Nazareth High School Victory Corps was inaugurated with an appropriate induction ceremony on May 14, when 228 students were enrolled in general membership. The purpose of this corps is two-fold- To train the youth for war service with which they will come in contact after they leave school- and to get active participation of the youth in the war effort of the community while they are yet in school. Ths fust of these purposes would give students guidance into services of occupa¬ tions in which critical needs exist, wartime citizenship training, a physical fitness program, stressing competence in science and mathematics, preflight training in aeronautics, preinduction training for critical occupations, either in land, air, or naval forces or in productive civilian life, and community service. The second purpose tries to interest the students in such phases of war work as air warden, fire watcher, or other Civilian Defense Volunteers Activities, U. S.

The induction ceremony was opened with a selection by the band. Rev. Paul Meinert led the devotional exercises which were followed by the “American Creed” recited by Robert Ziegler.

After Mr. Frack’s inspirational address, the insignia were awarded by Mr. Adam Shekletski, director of the Victory Corps, and Miss Florence Nicholas, principal of Nazareth Senior High School. 1943 THE COMET Prom Strains of soft music filled the gym and extended a musical invitation to the couples gathered for the Junior-Senior Prom on the evening of May 14. As the scintillating rhythms of Mark Hilburn and the Nomads lured the couples to the gym floor, the girls, in their long, flowing gowns of pastel shades, were a vivid contrast to the marching array of red, white, and blue decorations, gracefully swaying from the ceiling with every movement of the dancers. For those who did not care to dance, games such as Chinese checkers and parchesi were provided. During intermission the dancers gathered in the lunch room to enjoy delicious refreshments. The long tables were decorated in a patriotic scheme of red, white, and blue, with centerpieces, consisting of tall red, white, and blue candles. Members of the committees included: Faculty adviser: Mrs. Ralph Metz. Decorating Committee: Albert Gaumer, chairman; Marion Alich, Marjorie Griffin, Robert Krieger, John Landon, Juniata LeVan, Corrine Ott, Elizabeth Wartman, Mabel Werkheiser, Gladys Werner, Jean Wunderly, and Henry Wyjhoskie. Refreshment Committee: Doids Rice, chairman; Betty Hahn, Hattie Hirman, Raymond Lemley, Victoria Marsh, Harvey Heckman, Betty Gold, and Anna Shook. These students were ably assisted in their work by Miss Pearl Schnerr. Entertainment Committee: Virginia Lehr, chairman; Betty Worman, Ruby Hough, James Neumeyer, Shelton Keller, and Stephen Keppel. Social Activities During this wartime period, our school parties, sponsored by the Student Council, were better attended and more enjoyed than ever before. On the evening of November 19, happy couples danced in the gym to the music of the Nomads. Golden ears of corn, crimson berries, and autumnal foliage added color to the festive occasion. December 23 found these same dancers swaying once again in the gym to the rhythmic strains of the Nomads, this time against a background of lighted Christmas trees. In the lunchroom, the tables were artistically decorated with pine. Lighted candles and a miniature Santa with his bag of toys formed an attractive centerpiece. Games were provided for those who didn’t dance; these students found amuse¬ ment in playing Chinese checkers or other games. As the hands of the clock reached eleven, the students realized that the fun and the gayety of the evening were ended and laughing crowds slowly wended their way out of the gym and proceeded homeward.

Basketball This season’s varsity basketball team, consisting of four lettermen, was among the leaders of the Lehigh-Northampton County League throughout the season. Nazareth was in first place during the first half of the season with Wilson a close second, but in the second half Nazareth was tied for the lead with Wilson. In the playoff game with Wilson, Nazareth was defeated by the score, 32-36. The team’s record for this season was 11 victories against 6 losses. Varsity Dec. 15, 1942 N. H.

Football Together with Coach Leh’s help and the exceptionally fine playing on the part of both lettermen and newcomers, the Nazareth High School football team added another championship to its long list of Lehigh-Northampton County League titles. The fighting spirit of both the team and the students helped to produce a good record of 6 victories, one of which was a victory over our arch rival, Wilson. The defeats numbered only 2, but since neither were league contests, they had no effect upon the league title. Date Team Sept. 26, 1942 N. H. S. 19 Shillington . 0 Oct. 3, 1942 N.

My Teacher! j (With Apologies to Whitman) O Teacher! my Teacher! this fearful poem’s done; The mind has weathered every rack, the end we sought is won; The end is near, the bell I hear, the pupils all exhausted. While follow eyes the steady gaze, the teacher grim and daring; But O mind, mind, mind, O the sweating drops in thought, While at the desk our teacher sits, Wise with object thought. O Teacher! my Teacher! get up and hear our cries; Rise up—for you the mind is strained —for you our ears do ring; For you we study all we can, (Which isn’t much at all;) For you we cram this poetry, and hold the verse in awe; Hear, teacher! Dear teacher! This turmoil o’er head; It is some dream that at this desk You’ve weary pupils led. My teacher does not answer, her lips are set and still; My teacher does not hear our voices, she has no heart or will; The poem’s anchored safe and sound, but we—our heads are aching, The victor poem from fearful “poet” returns with object won; Exult O pupils, and ring, O bells! But I with mournful tread, Walk the floor of my teacher’s room ’Cause the poem’s left my head. Donald Miller.
