'Goinst the rising sun
Stands our loved Alma Mater
Pride of days to come.
Here with daily tasks we struggle
With our goal in sight
Ever mindful ot our brothers
And the Blue and White.
By thy name, dear Alma Mater
We shall win the fight,
And for us, thy sons and daughters,
Days will e'er be bright
Nazareth High, to thee we're pledging
All our main and might-
Never shall dishonor cloud thee
Nor the Blue cmd White!

XFRANK GEORGE ALICH
"Watch out, watch out, l gotta get my English finished." Here
comes Alich, another hard worker in the fifteen minute periods. He
likes to get his work finished in school, so that he can enjoy a good
night's fun after school. 'iAlich" participated in class basketball
and was a member of the Science Club. He likes mathematics and
chemistry very much and hopes to become a chemical engineer

ROBERT WILSON ACHENBACH "Bobby"
"Bobby" is one of the Belfast "gang." His chief talent seems
to be mischievous pranks. Although he may appear indifferent, he
is not entirely uninterested in the opposite sex. His hobbies are
hunting and ice skating. "Bobby" will probably be wearing the
navy blue in the near future.
JEAN GRACE ALTEMOSE "Buggsie"
Jean is a peppy lassie who enjoys sports and square dancing.
She is noted for the endless practical iokes she plays on her friends.
One Tuesday each month finds Jean at Commercial Club in room 25.
Besides finding time to write to servicemen, she also finds time to
type for the Blue and White. "Buggsie" hopes, in the future, to
become a hairdresser, but we wonder if a certain boy from
Tatamy will change her mind.

MARION ELIZABETH ALTEMOSE "Marion"
Marion, another at the more quiet and reserved Altemose clan,
delights in giggling. Frequently she and Jean can be seen riding
their bicycle for two. Marion's specialty is playing hairdresser to
the citizens of Tatamy. She writes Tatamy news for the "Item,"
Playing baseball and sewing are her leisure time activities.

VINCENT ORTHELLER ALTEMOSE "Vince"
"Vince," the tricky lad, hails from Clearfield. He enioys
talking and ioking with his classmates more than studying. He likes
to play basketball in gym class and was on the J. V. Squad in his
iunior year. "Vince" wants to be an aviation engineer. He intends
to go to college tor one year and then ioin Uncle Sam's Air Corps.

Elephant is crazy about it, says little Lexie with the big pink
bow in "Let Me Grow Up." Shining black hair, ability to achieve
good grades, a pleasing personality, plus her own version ot
laughter should prove helpful in college. Besides all this, "Jackie"
won the first prize in the I944 oratorical contest. She also showed
her ability as a member of Student Council and as Associate Editor
of the Comet. Her heart belongs to---Oh, "Jackie," we're con-

"Yea Team! Yea Team!" lt's only Mae spurring the team on

last three years. Besides her pep in cheerleading, she is also a
whiz on the basketball floor. Even though she possesses all this
pep, Mae takes her good old time in getting to and from classes.
Her 'Future ambition is to become a nurse.

GRACE HELEN BARRALL "Gracie"
"Gracie's" shy and quiet disposition in the classroom is quite
deceiving, because outside of class she is just as talkative and full
of fun as the next person. Her 'favorite sports are basketball and
volley ball. She also loves to dance, especially with that certain
person from Pennsville.
Commercial Club 2, 3.
DOROTHY MAE BECK o
"Dot," who hails from Bangor, is a lolly little lassie, full of fun
and with an unusual laugh that attracts much attention. She does
not take part in sports or extra school activities because working
in Murphy's 5 and 10 takes up most of her time. She is fond ot
dancing and bowling. We think her heart-throb is wearing the

GEORGE GIDEON BENSING "Bensing"
"Hal Ho! Ho!" Don't get excited, folks. lt's iust "Bensing's"
bellow at some poor fellow who has fallen down the steps. He can
find time for laughing at anything, no matter how serious. "Ben-
sing" says he doesn't mind school, but he sure is glad when summer
comes. His special "love" is English. l??l He says he wants to be
an Undertaker, following in his father's business. One of his
favorite foods is ice cream and he claims he can eat a gallon at a
time. We'd have to see that to believe it, though.
Science Club 7,
BERNADINE BEATRICE BITTENBENDER "Benny"
Crack! "Benny's" chewing gum again. She's active in sports
and always greets everyone with a smile. How does that Ford
look? After what "Benny" puts it through, we're afraid to look.
All joking aside, she's really a good driver. Just ask her three pals
from Hecktown. "Benny" will soon leave the foursome because of
the ring she wears on her third finger of her left hand. Do we
hear wedding bells in the near future? They wouldn't have any
connection with Moorestown, would they?

ELKTON KENNETH BLAKE "Blakie"
The girls must certainly take a lot from this tease, "Blakie," who
hails from Belfast. "Blakie" says chewing gum or talking at the
wrong time is good for bad iaws. He is willing to try anything
once, except schoolwork. Much of his leisure time is spent at the
DONALD STEPHEN BOYHONT "Bohunk"
Donnie, happy-go-lucky and with an excellent physique, is
something to look at. His main interest in school is to tease the
girls and this art he's mastered. "Bohunk's" spare time is spent
helping out at a gas station and he really seems to enioy himself
working. "Donnie's" ability and quick thinking helped our football
squad out of some tough spots.

ELEANOR DORIS BORGER "Blondie"
That long, lank, and lean figure with the blonde hair and robin-
blue eyes is none other than "Blondie," Her policy is one of dis-
tributing good will and bearing no malice. Her favorite sports are
ice-skating, croquet, and baseball. She hopes some day to become
Baseball l, 2, 3, Sale of War Bonds and Stamps 2.
XRICHARD FRANCIS BREINIG "Breinig"
"Toot! Toot!" Here's the town clown on his skooter in the
senior play. School work is no obstacle to Richard. However,
d-e-a-r hunting is more fun, isn't it? Or maybe you'd rather go
hiking with some boy scouts. Make way for "Breinig," the drummer,
as he comes parading down Nazareth streets leading the band.
"Breinig's" advice to the boys about the opposite sex is: "Don't
waste your breath on such creatures!"

GERALD JOHN BRINKER "Brink"
A quick "hiya," and then down to work. Thot's "Brink" arriving
at school in the morning. He says that he's in a hurry to get his
algebra done, but usually he ends up by participating in the general
gab with the rest. He was a constant follower of the basketball
team, and one night driving home from a game, he bumped the
grill on his Chevy. He said he had his eyes on the road, but you
can't tell. How about it, "Brink?"

THEODORA ANN BROBST "Teddy"
Here's another versatile senior, "Emily" of the operetta and
"Mrs, Holden" of the senior play. She is a member of the Blue and
White Stat? and has contributed to the Comet as a Music Editor.
With all these activities she still has time for other things. Could it
be male companionship, Teddy? Her ambition is to be a secretary,
and she intends to go to business college.

MICHAEL ANTHONY BUCCHI "Mike"
"Mike" is the larger ofthe famous Bucchi twins. He is remem-

ball. "Mike" finds school rather dry, but usually manages to come
through in his studies. He has many friends.

WILLIAM ROBERT BUCCHI "Bill"
Crash! Bang! Yes, Bill and his friends are in the Lab mixing
chemicals and another experiment has gone wrong. BiIl's ability
in football was shown by his skillful playing in many games.
Although small, he certainly can run that ball down to the goal
post. He is frequently seen helping his father repair shoes. Bill's
interest in school lies---no, not in school work---but in a certain

JANE ELIZABETH BUNN "Jane"
Meet one of the Associate Editors of the Comet. Tall, dark,
and slender, that's Jane, a favorite with all, especially Roddy.
She was also Business Manager for International in the magazine
campaign last year. Studious but fun loving, participating in many
school activities, this reliable, even-tempered senior is sure to be
successful at Hood, where she plans to take up Hospital Dietetics.

DONALD PAUL BURLEY "Burley"
This Tatamy lad's attention is held by a little sophomore from
room 9. If any girl is looking for a iitterbug teacher, "Burley" is
the man. We'd like to know where he gets his technique. To
l'BurIey" a school day is iust another day that comes and goes.
He has the distinction of being the only auburn-haired chap in the

ELAINE ANNA BUTZ "Butzie"
Elaine is one of those girls who spends much time behind a
counter at Murphy's. A cheerful disposition and a gay outlook on
life contribute greatly to Elaine's enioyment of life. Her favorite
sports are swimming and football. She intends to become a
DORIS ENOLA BUZZARD "Doe"
Although Doris is a quiet type of gal, she's a "swell" pal.
She enjoys music, reading, and cooking. She has contributed to
the Comet as a personality writer and is a faithful member of the
Girls' Glee Club. The army holds a special interest in "Doe's"
heart. She hopes to be a nurse.

ROBERT YOEMANS CHAPMAN "Chapman"
Robert wins the award as Mr. Goulding's favorite problem
child. Although he seldom answers in class, we believe "Chapman"
does much more thinking than he would have us believe. We
know, too, that he can earn 90's if the spirit moves him sufficiently.
"Chapman" spends much time at the "Y," He is a vigorous par-

CLASS PROPHEC Y
After months of diligent work, our four mad scientists-Professors Scheffler, Noll,
Skrapits, and Thompson-have perfected their remarkable time machine. At last the
moment for the final test is at hand! As we step aboard, Jennie Engler, a petitie little
hostess conducts us to our quarters. After we have been strapped in our seats by the
eminent Mr. Noll, the perils of this unique voyage are explained to us in detail by Mr.
Thompson. A switch is thrown and we are off into the fourth dimension amid a shower of
sparks and a roar of rockets. Since Mr. Scheffler has set a dial for the year T947, we
naturally find ourselves in l958. Evidently he is still asleep at the switch.
Oops! What was that noise? To our dismay, we have crashed into the ultramodern
Fleecycloud Apartment House. Dot and Bece come rushing toward us surrounded by
little iitterbugs. Bece is kept busy teaching the latest dancing techniques to all the
debutantes. Three efficient nurses, who live in the next apartment, rush to our aid. They
are Pauline Schoeneberger, Kathleen Shotwell, and Margaret Fassman. Not far behind
them the portly Dr. Searles waves his bottle of pink pills. We are immediately revived
and decide to explore the rest of the building until our damaged ship can be repaired
by William Schultz, master mechanic

to convince the housewives, such as Gloria Rohn and Viola Hahn, of the superiority of the
old-fashioned egg beater.
Arriving in New York and feeling very ambitious, we decide to walk uptown. Passing
a famous theater, we learn that Eileen Hoffmeister and Joseph Herd are playing the
romantic leads in the play "Strange Romance." What a team!
Not far away Michael Messinger is the head mechanic at the Smiling Irishman Garage.
We enter the Radio City Music Hall with the idea of relaxing. The feature movie is
entitled "Red Head" and Eunice Rudge and Donald Burley play the title roles. Jack
Kennedy is the voice behind the Movietone News Shorts.

Representing the student body of Nazareth Senior High School, the Student Council
consists of nine students-a boy and girl representative from each class, the three class
presidents, and Miss Florence L. Nicholas, the principal, serving in an advisory capacity.
The Student Council this year was able to sponsor three dances-a Thanksgiving, a
Patriotic, and a Barn Dance. Although refreshments were served at these parties and
fine orchestras were provided, there was no admission charged, since the members of the
Council were able to defray the expenses by selling refreshments at the football and
The Council has maintained a complete, up-to-date file of college catalogues. The
lost and found department, which is composed of members of the Council, held auctions
in the auditorium with the articles that were not claimed. Besides this, they have a
committee which cooperates in the care of the building. This year, two members of the
Student Council were chosen to represent the student body on the assembly committee,
which planned the annual assembly program.

tickets at all of the football and basketball games under the direction of the Faculty
Manager, Mr. Cump. Realizing that certain changes were needed in the Athletic Asso-
ciation Constitution, the association this year made the necessary revisions.

A Patriotic dance was the feature of this school year's final festivity, the annual
iunior-senior frolic, held in the gym on May ll, from 8:00 until ll:3O o'clock.
A canopy of red, white, and blue crepe paper streamers, stretching from the center
of the ceiling to huge clusters of flags on the walls, made a colorful background for the
gay, flowing gowns of the girls and their darker-clothed partners. These gay couples
danced to the tunes of the Arcadian's Orchestra. For those not wishing to dance, games
Refreshments were served, buffet style, to a large crowd of happy students and
faculty guests in the lunchroom from tables colorfully decorated with flags.

During this school year, the high school gymnasium was the scene of three delightful
and entertaining parties, sponsored by the Student Council. The purpose of these social
affairs was to promote more friendly relations among the students and faculty. On Novem-
ber 17, a Thanksgiving Dance was heldg on February 20, a Patriotic Party, and on April
27, a novelty Barn Dance.
At the Thanksgiving Dance the walls were cleverly adorned with pennants of different
schools, and chrysanthemums were placed on the tables in the lunchroom. At the Patriotic
Party the gym took on another aspect as flags were the predominating factor in the
decorating scheme. The Barn Dance was enlivened by the wearing of gay and colorful
costumes-the boys wore overalls and loud plaid shirts while the girls wore gay cotton
The music for these dances was furnished by the Nomads' orchestra. Games were
played by those who did not wish to dance, and, during intermission, refreshments were
served in the lunchroom. Each of these parties had a large attendance and was thoroughly
enioyable both to students and teachers.

High hopes were held for the returning nine lettermen to create in this year's team an
unbeatable combination. However, iniuries, bad weather, and miscellaneous difficulties
prevented these hopes from materializing. Although the season was as a whole, poor,
the brilliant playing in the league games won the league championship award. The
record for the season is two wins, six losses, one tie.

zines offered another opening for advertising. By inviting attention
and winning interest in their products, sales and profits skyrocketed.
