WOODRING The " Woodie” Of course, everyone knows “Woodie” to be our town ' s milk¬ maid. Since she gets so little sleep, she has quite some trouble staying awake in classes. She claims it’s her work on the route, but sometimes we wonder!! “Woodie” is an enthusiastic athlete and enjoys dancing. Although “Woodie” has quite a lot of fun with Daisie, she finds time to earn good grades. Elaine is training to be a stenographer, but Bill might change her mind.

GLORIA S. YEAKEL " Blondie” Petite, full of pep, plus the disposition of an angel---all these factors contribute to make “Blondie” well-liked by both boys and girls. Having the ability to work as hard as she plays, she is quite well-rounded and is never too busy to lend a helping hand. Her sense of humor is outstanding. “Blondie” participated in the Dramatic Club play as “Ada, the feather brain.” She has her heart set on nursing in the future. At the present her big concern is a certain dark-haired boy in Room 33. Dramatic Club 2, 3; Glee Club 2, Secretary-Treasurer 3; Baseball 3. JOHN F.

Shirley Brody Muriel Herd Jeanne Kahler Ronald Roth George Way •m6 After years of diligent research we, the Class of ' 46, make a prediction. It is our firm belief that by January 1, 2163 A. D., every member of this class will have completed his journey in this world and will have had some years of residence in the next. (Anyone now living wishing to contest our prediction may do so at the above date if he or she is accompanied by both parents. In such a case we will revoke and make amends for our rash prophesy.) With the aid of jet propulsion time has flown to the year of our Lord, two thousand one hundred and sixty-three. It is midnight on the evening of October 31, Hallowe’en. On the grounds that once belonged to N. H. S., we now find the fabulously beautiful Roth Memorial Park, erected by the public in memory of the great physicists, Doctors Gladys and Ronald Roth, whose patient and ceaseless efforts brought about the discovery and widespread use of MATQXVRLSCZ, a liquid of greater benefit to mankind than water. At the last stroke of twelve Dr. Ronald’s bronze statue trips gaily over to that of his colleague and together they move off to visit the haunts of their old school mates. Leaving the park by Cupid’s Corridor they stop at the statue of the eminent Walter Albert, whose constructive genius harnessed the power of radar, making it possible to drive an auto¬ mobile without hands. (This is indeed a boon to lovers everywhere!) However, his mechanism has been known to fail at times and these failures brought about the untimely end of Harold Arnold, John Houck, and Frank Miklos. In the next block they pass Thunderbolt Theater, a place full of dear memories. It was here that Marguerite Remel’s immortal book, Bringing Up Scoffs, was first given as a play in which Arlene Schortz, Jean Schaffer, Viola Ritter, Gerald Butts, John Flegler, and Robert Osterstock made their theatrical debut. The theater was partially destroyed when over zealous autograph hounds sought the star of stage, screen, and radio, Virginia Heiney. Miss Heiney, with her troupe designer, Ethel Lakey, and her manicurist, Anna Anschau, barely escaped with their lives. This catastrophe gave plumber Carl Barlieb so much business that he was able to retire a year later. Under the able direction of the architect, Pauline Heidenwolf, the place was made more beautiful than ever. In fact the stage was so large that shortly afterward, horses from Ted Schafer’s livery pulled Donald Geiling’s massive wagons in the now famous Prairie Schooner scene of Carl Kraemer ' s never-to-be-forgotten tragi-comedy, " Mid¬ spring’s Nightmare’’ or " What’s so rare as a day in April—without an umbrella?” Two blocks down and three blocks over stand the ruins of what was once the most beautiful Turkish Bath in town. Owned jointly by Pauline Fenstermaker, Pearl Barrall, and Ethel Miller, it was patronized by such celebrities as Willour Smith’s famous Galloping Golden Gophers—Frank Sours, Steven Karlowitch, Stephen Paukovits, and Kenneth Smith, the flashiest backfield in the history of professional football. Noted officials for many games included Walter Solt, Walter Huber, and John Petraglia with Jean Gold, Pauline Eckhart, and Doris Weiss covering for the press. Next door stands the building which once housed Anna Cowling’s Miracle Mud Pack Plant of which Amelia Klusko was president. Veronica Temos, Miss Mudpack Complexion of 1960, claimed that all her fame could be traced back to her first mud pack which was given to her when she took Marion Smith’s Success Course. Their only source of mud was Tatamy, in fact, Elizabeth Eyer’s property. This is what put Elizabeth and her family into the exclusive and refined 400 4 10 club of that little metropolis. Older folks who can remember the flavor of Pierzga’s Pies still drool at the very mention of Mike’s delicious pastries. Mike had such a large business that he had to hire Francis Soffera and John Gerenser to deliver them about town. Frank Maurek was honorably proclaimed " Woman of the Age,” when he patented his Wearever Nylons. However, Frank did not wish fame and so he soon sold his business to Kenneth Warner, who quickly amassed a large fortune. With stock broker, Ed Taylor, and insurance agent, Paul Kahler, to invest and protect his money it has been kept in the Warner family until the present day. The Class of ' 46 produced many prominent figures in the field of education. One of these was Delphine Shafer, who produced the educational movie, " Winning the Sweep- stakes,” which was based on Mary Hahn’s secret for winning any kind of contest, race, or game. Another was David Pritchard who was Superintendent of LeRoy Eckhart’s Body Building School. One of his pupils, Richard Altemose, became the Atlas of the Atomic Age. At Columbia University they found Irene Horvath’s tomb. She spent 20 years there obtaining her B. L. N. T. (Better Luck Next Time.) Students of the stars came from miles around to hear lectures by Barbara Kleppinger, doctor of Astronomy. Here, too, was found a plaque dedicated to Dottee Danforth’s discovey of flea powder for domesticated wolves. Flitting back to Nazareth they pass the remnants of Fred Hooper’s Home for the Feeble Minded. This home employed George Miltenberger as bouncer, Robert Lambert as caretaker, and Ruth Leiby as head nurse. They finally approach the Indian Cemetery where the rest of our school-chums lie at rest. The Secretary of the State of Coma, John Ziegler, was buried here by the mortician, Donald Markle. The hearse was driven by Dottie Christman. The main attractions at the Barnum Bailey Circus, two hundred and one years ago, were the daring feats of Lois Rotzell and Marguerite Ferraro on the trapeze and Gloria Yeakel’s stupendous leap from a 40-foot pole into Robert Meixell’s arms. At that time Helen Tamandl signed a life contract with Dorney Park. She took the place of the laughing dummy in front of the Devil’s Cage. Next they came across the graves of La Rue Arndt, Gordon Arnold, Arlene Kahler, and John Searock. All were happily married (not necessarily to each other, however.) Glancing from one stone to another, many memories were brought to mind. Muriel Herd used to beat a drum for the Flow Soap commercial on the Flow Hour of Charm which featured the Flow Gently Trio—Barbara Muth, Mary Jane Neel, and Lorraine Repsher, who made famous the aria, " Shall We Wash?” (Incidentally, " Flow” spelled backwards spells-.) Pauline Wunderly was Doctor of Obstetrics at the Philadelphia Zoo for forty successful years—40 triplets, 80 twins, and 10 singles were born during that time. The same year that James Miksch was elected to the presidency of the S. P. C. A., JoAnne Kern wrote the immortal book, Murder in the Butcher Shop or Who Killed That Calf? Vera Clewell succeeded J. Edgar Hoover as chief of the F. B. I. and induced David Gower to portray the villainous characters in Richard Thompson’s movies for anti-crime education. Colonel Lucy Detwiler of the Women’s Army Corps will long be remembered for her endless " Battle against Bugs,” of all shapes, sizes, and colors. In 1965 John Julius succeeded John L. Lewis as President of the United Mine Workers when he promised not to strike for less than two days’ work per week. This strike was aimed primarily against the Dora Manning Coal Company. Kenneth Frey, Charles Tonay, and George Stewart in a nation-wide poll were voted as the best dressed men of their day. Annabelle Weaver and Erna Nagle were competent secretaries to Joseph Hirman who worked himself up the hard way to the position of Commissioner of the Super Sewage Disposal System of New York City. Theresa Fickert became the Director of the O. B. I. (Office of Bus Information.) The Brown-nose Union for better marks with less apple-polishing was organized by Martha Houser. She devoted her life unselfishly to this worthy cause. - m George Way won celestial fame as the creator of " Luminous Licorice Lipstick. " It glowed in the dark. Other inventors were Carmella Perna and Mary Uhler whose contributions to science consisted of hearing aids for scarecrows and an eyewash for potatoes. Via the international telephone system Frances Steltzman married the Frenchman with whom she corresponded during high school days. (This established a precedent that has gone down through the years.) Their great grandson is present emporer of the Republic of Neutopia. Jeanne Kahler built and operated the Sunshine Special, the first railway tube to encircle the globe. Lester Scott painted the sun spots for the pictures of the sun which Jeanne used as a trademark. Lester Siegfried became captain of the U. S. Basketball team which captured the Olympic title in 1964. In the sports world of her time, Shirley Brody became the world’s bowling champion after 42 years of practice. (She never did give up.) In Irene Vitez’s sidewalk cafe Marion Leh and Margie Ambrose would cut a rug backward when Gloria Edelman and her Pennsylvanians played " Twista! Tosa!” the great composition of the prominent artist, Mary Reph. Angelo Nardella, in his Front Street Barber Shop in Bath, was the first to use the Radar Razor which had been invented by Ralph Kratzer. Adjoining the barber shop was Catherine Flick’s Finger Wave Salon. She won a nation-wide hairdressing contest and her exquisite hair styles became the rage of the year 2000. In Hecktown they found the remains of Eva Lieberman’s factory which, in its better days, manufactured costume jewelry that Catherine Inhoff and Shirley Morris modeled. In the nearby thriving metropolis of Newburg is found the first apartment store that dealt entirely with articles for twins, triplets, quadruplets, and quintuplets, founded by the Meyers’ Twins. Leaving Newburg they are attracted by the reminiscing of some town folk about the great achievement of Elaine Woodring who has gone down in the history of the Pygmies of deep Africa for her daily milk deliveries there. This had increased their stature to 6 feet 3 inches. Dacia Wagner, the sanitation officer, washed all the bottles. Elaine’s daily visits to Africa were a great boon to missionary Arlene Bartron. Arlene befriended Doris Hunt, Virginia Siegfried, and Anne Wimmer when they moved the headquarters of their Archeologists Company to the jungles. In their day Alice Rohrbach, Jean Brown, and Rose Carlo were known as the " Atomic Trio” because of Lorraine Florey’s atomic pen which enabled them to take shorthand at 1000 words a minute. Last, but not least, they travel to the tomb of Kathryn Follweiler. For some reason or other the inscription doesn’t make sense. " Passed on from a broken toe, because she didn’t wear shoes when she kicked the bucket.” It’s all in fun So don’t be sore; But if you are, Stamp on the floor. —Amen.

The Student Council is the representative body of the students of Nazareth Senior High School. It affords an opportunity for the students to have matters of student interest brought to the attention of the school through the Council members—a boy and girl representative from each class and the three class presidents. All problems are thoroughly discussed at the bi-monthly meetings and are acted upon accordingly. Miss Florence L. Nicholas is adviser to the Council. Three dances—a Thanksgiving, a Valentine, and a Spring Dance—were enjoyed by the student body through the sponsorship of the Student Council. Furthermore, they acted as hosts for the afternoon dances which were held between 3:30 and 4:45 p. m. This year a boy and girl representative from the Council served on the Student Faculty Assembly Program Committee. The Lost and Found Department functioned promptly and efficiently in returning misplaced articles to their owners. A college catalogue library was maintained to help all students in selecting the colleges in which to pursue their studies and vocational training upon graduation from high school. Besides this, a committee of the council aids in the care of the building.

Mr. Paul W. Goulding coached the contestants. This year the contestants unanimously decided to select topics of a lighter nature to balance the numerous other programs which we were privileged to have had devoted to world affairs. Bernard Mittemeyer spoke feelingly of his former homeland, Surinam, as " The Little Country of Milk and Honey.” Robert Leh wrapped numerous traditions about the White House into a package called " The Great White Father’s Wigwam.” George Way assured one and all that " There’s No Place Like Home.” EB THE BAND PERSONNEL J T CORNETS AND TRUMPETS Walter Albert Lee Arndt James Eyer Marion Frack Robert Frack Reuben Heller Russell Kindt Walter Kostenbader Frank Martin Ear!

FACULTY ADVISER: Miss Belva Saricks SOCIAL ACTIVITIES The Sophomore Hallowe’en Party on October 31 marked the gala opening of the social season at Nazareth High School. The gym was effectively decorated with black cats, goblins, and witches. During the first part of the evening group games were played with advisers participating. Reuben Heller’s orchestra provided music for dancing. Appropriate refreshments were enjoyed by all. The affair promoted a friendly feeling among the new underclassmen and faculty members. The Student Council, under the direction of Miss Florence L. Nicholas, sponsored three delightful informal dances. On the evening of November 16 the gym was bedecked with autumnal foliage and red and gold corn. The Nomad’s Orchestra provided music for dancing from seven thirty until eleven o’clock. Games were available for those not wishing to dance. Re¬ freshments were served during intermission. On the eve of February 13 a St. Valentine Dance proved to be a huge success. Approximately 330 guests, including servicemen from various branches of the armed forces, participated in the fun. Music for dancing was furnished by Reuben Heller’s orchestra, while those not wishing to dance enjoyed playing various games. Red hearts and gay cupids added the romantic touch to the atmosphere. Refreshments were served in the lunchroom which also carried out the red and white color scheme. At this dance a receiving line extended a cordial welcome and bade farewell to reluctant guests at eleven o’clock as the last strains of music seemed to whisper an evening to remember. Again on May 24 the gym was the scene of a Spring Dance. Lovely spring flowers adorned the gym. Refreshments were served in the lunchroom. Music for dancing was provided by Reuben Heller’s orchestra and games were played by those not wishing to dance. Something new this year is our after school dancing period. Each week on several nights from 3:30 until 4:45 Reuben Heller’s orchestra provided music for dancing in the gym. Miss Florence L. Nicholas and Miss Margaret Franck were the faculty advisers.

In the beginning of the season the Blue Eagles were in a slump, but with team spirit, cooperation, and the old fight the team won the last three games. The season’s climax was the defeat of the Wilson Warriors for the second consecutive season. 1945 N.H.S.

Leiby A TOAST TO SHORTHAND 3CP Shorthand is the subject we like the most, And so to it we’ll drink a toast! Useful? Indeed it is. For jotting notes, it’s a whizz. Interesting? How could you ask? And the homework is such an easy task! Sixty, eighty, a hundred words a minute, Though fate seems to be agin’ it; That’s the speed for which we strive. And through long practice we’ll arrive. Transcription is another story: Commas and periods in their glory; Nevertheless, a perfect letter we’ll turn out.
