Superintendent of Nazareth Public Schools
We, the Class of '47, dedicate this our yearbook to Superintendent
Frederick A. Marcks, whose understanding, integrity, and sincere
kindness serve as a constant asset to the welfare and development
of our school system.
Mr. Marclgs has been associated with our public schools since 1909,
when he held a teaching position. Two years later he was made
principal, and in 1915 he became the supervising principal. Since
1937, Mr. Marclgs has been superintendent of the Nazareth Public
The Nazareth Public Schools
The high school gym and surrounding rooms are filled with people, buzzing with ad'
miring and approving exclamations. It is the evening of the annual art exhibition. This
eagerlyfawaited project is one of a varied group of extra class activities carried on and
supported by the Nazareth Public Schools. An efhcient art program- is conducted both
in the elementary schools and in the high school. Home Economics and Industrial Arts
are offered for high school students, and comprise two valuable phases of our educational
system. Musical training is an important branch of our school curriculum. The traditional
program of Christmas carols, given by the children of the elementary schools, and the
popular band concert, presented by the Nazareth High School Band, are two important
musical events of the school year,
These are but a few of the variety of opportunities Nazareth High School extends for
its students in the way of clubs and organizations. Because of this variety, the student will
find at least one activity in which he is interested. The Forum Club and the Oratorical
Contest offer students, interested in public speaking and current problems,a chance to use
their talents. The Blue and White Standard and the senior yearbook are projects carried
on by students interested in journalism and business. These are a few of the projects
undertaken by the students for their enjoyment and development.
Both in interfmural and intrafmural sports activities, Nazareth Public Schools has
developed a sound program of athletics. Throughout the school year, the high school gym
is the scene of many and varied activities, because both boys and girls cover a carefully
worked out program in physical education. Nazareth High is furnished not only with a
wellfequipped gymnasium, but also an athletic held with bleachers, seating 15,000 specf
tators, tennis courts, a hockey and softball field, and an outdoor play area. The elementary
schools have wellfequipped playgrounds, and the Whitheld Building is fortunate to have
a gymnasium in addition to outdoor hrcilities. Healthy boys and girls enjoy sports and the
Nazareth Schools have satished this desire.
The first public school house in Nazareth was built back in 1855. About 30 years
later, the North Broad Street Building was erected. For a time this building housed both
the elementary and grade school, but when the need for an elementary school became
evident, the Fairview Building was erected. Nine years later, the Whitfield Building was
In 1923, 176 pupils and 6 teachers moved into a new high school on Belvidere Street
after the old high school had been condemned. Within six years the new high school had
to be enlarged to almost one and a half times its original size. After this enlargement,
seventh and eighth grades were moved into the new high school building and combined
with ninth grade to form a junior high school. The North Broad Street Building remained
unoccupied until 1939 when it was renovated and became an annex to the junior high school.
The Hrst class of 10 students was graduated from Nazareth High School in 1893. This
year the graduating class numbers 158. Round about 1918 the commercial curriculum was
added to our school program. Music came into our schools a little later. Art and sewing
were added in '24, and that year also saw the introduction of Industrial Arts. Physical
and Health Education were started in '27, with Mr. Leh instructing both boys and girls.
Our library developed encouragingly and, in 1931, a librarian was employed. In '36
instruction in instrumental music was begun and a band was organized. One year later,
Nazareth High School became accredited. In this year Mr. Marcks was made superinf
tendent of the Nazareth Public Schools.
Because Nazareth draws many of its students from nearby districts, the enrollment
of the high school is much greater than that of the elementary and junior high schools. Our
school system has developed steadily, and the teaching staff has increased naturally with
the growing enrollment and enriched curriculum.
ln the old historic Nazareth
'Gainst the rising sun
Stands our loved Alina Mater
Pride of days to come.
Here with daily tasks we struggle
With our goal in sight
Ever mindful of our brothers
And the Blue and White.
By thy name, dear Alma Mater
We shall win the fightg
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 and White!

MAE E. ACKERMAN "Mae"
Mae is one of the many seniors who hail from Stockertown.
Her merry laugh and pleasant ways help her to make friends. Ma:
especially likes ice skating, but another activity which helps to fill
her leisure time is dancing. She also enioys music, and has been an
active member of the Girls' Glee Club during her senior year. Mae
has no plans for the future, but "Time alone will tell."
YOLANDA V. AMBROSE "Susie"
Swish! There she goes. Yes, it's Viola, better known as
"Susie." Anytime you see her, she is either in a hurry to do an
errand or she is rushing down the hall collecting absentee slips,
"Susie" is one of our more active seniors. She likes school clubs
and sports. "Susie" is head over heels for a certain sailor from
Tatamy. jitterbugging is one of her favorite activities, especially
with Donald. How about it, Viola? Working at the Nazareth
Dress Factory keeps her pretty busy after school.

LESTER J. ANDERSON "Les"
Looking for "Les"? He's probably sitting in his car listening
to the radio. "Les" is one of our more quiet senior boys. Every'
where "Les" goes, joe is sure to be with him. "Les" is fond of
driving his Pontiac. especially over weekends, and he never lacks
passengers. "Les" ought to be able to drive to Bushkill Park
blindfolded by now. He's had enough experience anyway.
SAMUEL J, ARISTIDE, JR. "sam"
One can easily recognize Sam by his big smile. As Matt Rock'
wocd in "january Thaw," Sam played a major part in making the play
a success. A conscientious worker, Sam also helped the band along
by serving in the color guard. Sam's main interest is in sports:
basketball, football. and baseball. his favorite. Sam is another
senior who helped his team take the class basketball championship
three consecutive years, and he also earned his place on the team

Carvrfl! Carl Ashenfelder! You've guessed it. Ashey's
been caught running through the hall and down the steps. Even
though he hails from Christian Springs, Ashey spends a lot of time
in Bath. What's the attraction, Carl77 We know you don't work
there anymore. Carl is undecided about the future.
MARTHA H. BICKERT "Mart"
This shy little lass hails from Cherry Hill. Upon further
acquaintance, Mart is at times inclined to be quite talkative. She
is not very studious, but manages to get her work done on time.
Even though she is not an active participant, Mart is interested in
sports. To be someone's private secretary is Mart's ambition.

MARGARET M. BITZ "Bitzie"
"No kidding." is one of "Bitzie's" favorite phrases. How we
envy that natural curly hair! "Bitzie" is a commercial student from
Stockertown, who doesn't take her school work too seriously. She
spends much of her time at the skating rink at Bushkill Park, and
can usually be seen with her faithful companion, "Edelman," We
hear your favorite subjects are English and bookkeeping, "Bitzie."
JANE E. BLINTON "fame"
"Dance, Janie?" is a frequent greeting to "Janie," one of our
accomplished dancers. Although she scares easily, she enjoys all
sports, and was one of our cheerleaders. Dancing and collecting
records occupy most of her spare time. At present, however, her
main interest is centered in a brown1haired graduate. Her future
seems rather vague to everyone.

and volley ball as well. Although not a bookworm, she succeeds
in doing satisfactory work. Her main interest seems to be in

A. RAY BRONG "Ray"
Quite talkative plus not a care in the world makes Ray one
of the happyfgoflucky individuals of the senior class. Nights, Ray
can be seen behind the counter at the local Y. M. C. A., holding
down his sofcalled position. His spare time is spent in shooting
pool and bowling, in both he is able to hold his own. Whatever the
future holds for him, Ray is sure to be a success, for he is a hard
worker on every job except school work.
JAMES T. BURLEY " j 1mmy"
Small in stature, but an lturbi at the piano gives an excellent
picture of "jimmy" as everyone knows him. Although he claims
school is a trying task, he always manages to do creditable work.
Reading German, as it should be read, is one of his major accomplish'
ments and makes him the envy of all German students, After
school jimmy plans to continue his study of music.
ANNA MAE S. CARTY 'lMcCarty"
Shoot! Shoot! Glancing over the gym floor you'll spot our
blonde "hombshell" urging her team to victory. A'McCarty"
enjoys all sports, and was an efficient guard on the basketball team.
She was one of the photography editors of the Comet. Happyfgo-
lucky and cheerful, she is sure to add to the fun wherever she is
because of her ability to tell jokes. You certainly know how to
handle the clarinet, too, "McCarty."

Christman, it will be all right with him.

FRANCES C. CONDOMITTI "Francie"
Another chatterbox from Room 23, Francie has a ready smile
for everyone. Francie's specialty is telling the latest jokes. Much
of her spare time is taken up by someone from Easton. Skating
and jitterbugging at Tatamy are Francie's special loves. Not very
much interested in sports or very enthusiastic about lessons, Frances
isn't too ambitious.

student. She is an allfround good sport and in her spare time she
can be found reading a book or listening to records. Her interests
in life are having fun and going to college. Friendliness with the
opposite sex and the ability to accomplish many things will help
Norma in her future.

SIDNEY G. CUMBERLAND "Sid"
"Sid" hails from Valley View Farms. He is much interested
in school work and usually has his lessons prepared. His interest
lies in the opposite sex, but not around here-so he tells us. Either
fbi army will have him after graduation or he will become a metal
A. WILLIAM DAY "Bill"
That all his classmates look up to him is evident, for "Bill" is
six foot eight inches tallg and when seen with "Wally," they look
like Mutt and jeff. He has helped his classmates out of many tough
situations, especially in basketball. "Bill's" motto seems to be:
"How to Get In, but Not Out, of Trouble," His high light comes
every day in English class. Whenever there is a roar of laughter,
you usually find "Bill" in the middle of it. His only ambition is to
End a job.

ELSIE V DEUTSCH "Elsie"
At a glance, Elsie seems to be quiet and reserved, but looks
are often deceiving. She is a commercial student and did her bit as
a Comet typist. Elsie is also one of Miss Botto's faithful student
librarians. Her motto seems to be, "Where there's a will, there's a
way." This attitude should be an asset in her career.

question about Northampton, locality or population, will be

Not too studious, but chuck full of pranks, puts Albert into
the category of the Hitches." Keeping Room 33 a lively spot is one
of Al's chief accomplishments. He proved his worth in sports as
an outstanding lineman on this year's football team. We wonder
what "Al's" interest in Room 5 could be. Maybe that's why he
asks permission to see Mr. Leh so frequently in the hfteen minute

ERIC M. DOLL "Edgy"
If you ever want to hear a corny joke, here's your man, for
they seem to be his specialty. Besides being fun loving, "Ecky" is
interested in science, and is one of the senior art students. Psycho'
therapy seems to be "Ecky's" chosen profession. By the way, Eric,
why, in art class, do you always try to imitate a certain crooner?

HERBERT DOROZOWSKI "Herbie"
'sl-Ierbie" is an amusing character at times, but he can be
serious too. His interests are not wholly devoted to school, but
are divided between sports and girls. Baseball, basketball, and
football are all his meat, His position as end on the football team
shows proof of his ability on the gridiron. "Herbie" Ends blushing
hard to overcome, maybe it's one of his innate characteristics,

BRENT W. DOYLE "Brent"
"And I believe," is none other than the Walter Winchell of
the senior class speaking in P. D. class. He not only holds his own
in any argument, but his interest and ability in football made him a
constant menace to opposing linemen. This auburnfhaired chap
hails from Stockertown, but can be seen in Nazareth quite fre'
quently. We wonder whether his interest could be centered
around one of our commercial students in Room 23.

DORIS M EBERTS "Lefty"
Giggle! Giggle! There's never a dull moment when x'Lefty's"
around. This trait accounts for her many friends. She plays a
clarinet in the band and also enjoys pounding the piano. One of
her hobbies is dancing at the Blue Room where she can be found
quite often. Lately, she's been dayfdreaming in her classes. Could
it be a certain Lehigh student?

CATHERINE D. EDELMAN "Edelman"
Not every student has the distinction of being able to live in a
village named after one's ancestors, Edelman claims this distinction
as her town is named after her great grandfather. Frequently
assuming a rather serious expression, Edelman may not appear to
like life, but she certainly does enjoy roller skating at Bushkill Park.
What's the attraction, Edelman? Besides being active in sports,
she is a good commercial student. A capable worker. she served

BETTY JANE WERKHEISER "Berry"
Here's "Betty," one of our more quiet gals, who can be
depended upon to do any task required of her. Brownfeyed
"Betty" enjoys all sport activities. Her experience in typing for
the Blue and White and the Comet will aid her in obtaining a
successful position in the future.
LORRAINE M. WERKHEISER "Lorraine"
Interested in dances, records, and books more than her studies,
Lorraine waits patiently for that day in june. An avid fan of
Vaughn Monroe, she spends most of her time chasing after his
newest records. Sports hold a special interest for her, and she can
be found at all sports events cheering loudly and long for her school
team. Her future plans are very simpleg no career for her-all she
asks is a piece of paper and a chance to say, "I do!"
MARIE A. WERKHEISER Mane
Quiet, dependable Marie, who enjoys reading, dancing, and
the great outdoors, can often be seen driving around town in her
'37 Dodge. Although quite busy after school hours, she always
has time to aid anyone who may need help. As a commercial
student, Marie intends to carry on the family tradition by working
at Binney and Smith after graduation.

RUTH E, WERKHEISER "Ruthie"
If you see a wellfdressed, darkfhaired girl dashing through the
hall, that's "Ruthie!" A friendly smile, a pleasant personality, and
an appearance of neatness are her three main characteristics.
Working at the St. Regis Paper Co, after school does not allow
"Ruthie" much spare time for clubs, but she is a student librarian
and helped on the Comet Staff as a personality editor. After
graduation she intends to continue her office work. Why the talk
of nice places for a honeymoon, 'ARuthie"???7

KATHRYN M. WOODRING "Boopie"
One of the jolliest lasses in the senior class, bluefeyed, golden'
haired "Boopie" is both energetic and helpful. She spends much
time enjoying the social activities of senior high and also TrifHifY.
Although giggling seems to be one of her chief diversions, she can
be an able student, and is sure to become a success as a secretary
after graduating in june.

ANNE E. WOODWARD "Whiz"
"Whiz" is one of our blonde, petite senior lasses, who is
capable of handling any argument that may arise. You'll remember
her as "Mathilda Rockwood" in the senior play, and she was a
real credit to it. "Whiz" is an active person and takes special
interest in all sports. She is also a lover of music and enjoys col'
lecting records. Her neatness and industry will help in her future

SHIRLEY M. WUNDERLY "Shirley"
"Silence is Golden" must certainly be Shirley's motto, for her
quiet manner is known to everyone. However, this does not inter'
fere with her having a good time. Dancing tops the list as a
favorite pastime, closely followed by ice skating. In her spare
moments she collects recipe booklets. After graduating she plans
to take up sewing as a vocation.
WALTER B. WUNDERLY "Tex"
"Wunderly messed it up again," is the familiar cry back at
Wagner, Frey, and Wunderly's table in the lab. Walter took the
humorous part of jonathan Rockwood in "january Thaw."
Coupled with Bill Day, "Tex" helped the senior class to down the
J. V.'s in their game last March. Wunderly claims the girls don't
bother him much, but sometimes we wonder.

THERESA L. YAVORSKI Tess
The giggling and chattering between "Tess" and Jean
indicates that "Tess" isn't a quiet girl. She is one of our out'
standing students, since high grades and "Tess" go hand in hand.
Dancing, reading, and ice skating hold a large share of "Tessie's"
interests. Business manager of the senior play placed a lot of
responsibility in her hands, proving her dependability. After
school she plans to enter college.

LAWRENCE F. ZEINER 'lLar1y"
"Trouble with your car?" If so, "Larry" could give you some
helpful advice. He's an experienced hand at this since almost all
his spare time is taken up working at the gas station. "Nothing to
say," is his slogan in P. D. class, but in physics class we know
better, for Mr. Shekletski has a hard time keeping him quiet. The
family Buick really gets a workout when "Larry" goes to town.
The Navy is a future possibility.

WILSON A. ZERFASS, JR. "junior"
Wilson is that tall, handsome fellow who helped the basketball
team to many victories. He is also a member of our band. Although
he always seems to be busy, Wilson still manages to iind time for a
certain little senior from Room 17. He is serious when it comes to
school work, and he is sure to succeed in all he undertakes. After
graduation Wilson intends to enlist in the army. Somebody is
going to be very lonely.

On September S, 1946, Miss Myra Druckenmiller, the principal of junior high school
for the past fifteen years, passed into Life. Both as a teacher and as a principal, Miss
Druckenmiller was considerate and willing to help her students. This teacher helped to
mold line character in the boys and girls who passed through her hands. The death of this
well loved woman is a great loss both to students who have graduated under her guidance
and to those students who were not fortunate enough to have had her as a teacher.
Miss Druckenmiller came to Nazareth in 1909 and began teaching in the sixth grade
of the elementary school. In 1923, when the intermediate school was organized by com'
bining seventh and eighth grades in the North Broad Street Building, she was chosen
principal. After the addition was built to the present high school in 1951, the seventh
and eighth grades were moved to the high school building and combined with ninth grade
to form the junior high school. She was elected principal of the junior high school in 1931,
where she served until her death. In the fifteen year period in which she served in Nazareth
Junior High School, well over a thousand students came to know and to love this teacher

Giving up much of their spare time, the Student Council members Work to improve their school and fellow
students. While their classmates are enjoying a football or basketball game, these nine members sacrifice their
time to sell refreshments and clean up the gym or football field after an event has taken place.
Under the able leadership of their president, the Student Council functioned in many fields. The Lost and
Found Committee notified students of any article lost or found and kept an accurate list of such items. The
duty of the Catalogue Committee was to maintain and take charge of a catalogue library of indexes to various
colleges. These catalogues were made available to the students and through the Student Council, undecided
seniors found suitable colleges for themselves. The Building Committee, consisted of boys and girls interested
in the preserving of school property, discussed the condition of the building and arrived at conclusions of ways
to improve our school.
Each semester the sophomore, junior, and senior classes elect a boy and girl representative to the Student
Council. All the class presidents automatically become members, making a total of nine. Officers are nominated
and presented to the student body in an assembly program. After each candidate has been introduced to the
student body by individual campaign managers, everyone votes for the person who he thinks is best qualihed
to Ht the position. S
Four dances were sponsored by the Student Council with the money raised from the sale of refreshments
at sports events. The Thanksgiving Dance, Christmas Dance, Winter Hop, and Barn Dance were all thoroughly
enjoyed by senior high school students. Refreshments were served, games provided for those not wishing to
dance, and fine music for dancing presented.
The aim and accomplishments of the Student Council have tended toward the promotion of a spirit of
cooiileration among students and a Eine attitude toward the school, Miss Florence L. Nicholas is faculty adviser
to t e group.

"Ain't nothin' a lawyer can do. Mathilda and me got a right to live here until the day we die, and that
might be quite a spell." This is jonathan Rockwood declaring his right to move back into his Connecticut
horse after an absence of six years. That the Gages had purchased the house in the meantime meant nothing
The problems of the Rockwoods and Gages were solved in the three humorous acts of "january Thaw,"
presented January 14 and 15, However, before this was accomplished, the Gage family began to wonder
whether they would freeze or starve. They all agreed that they preferred to starve rather than to eat a con-
coction of corn flakes topped with olives and syrup.
The disappearance of Barbara, the Gages' young and beautiful daughter, with the Rockwoods' son made
matters worse. Both families feared it was an elopment. Mr. Rockwood was particularly annoyed because he
did not believe in intermarriage. "Democrats should marry Democrats," he said.
When Mrs. Gage discovered the barn was iifty years older than the house, she was determined to redecorate
it and move in. This took care of the housing situation.

The Blue and Whz'te Standard
"But the work's gotta be ing it goes to the printer tonight!" This is a sincere and
worried plea, expressed time and time again by the sweating Blue and White Staff just
before the school paper "comes out." But eventually the work is completed.
This year the Blue and White Standard capped third place honors in the nation'
wide competition among newspapers of senior high schools, with enrollments of 300 to
750 pupils. The Columbia Scholastic Press Association is the sponsor. Both the school
and the Blue and White Staff is proud of this recognition.
Our school paper was also awarded third place in the annual contest sponsored by the
Pennsylvania School Press Association.
There is more to publishing a school newspaper than meets the eye. Terms such as
"prooffreading," uheadfliningf' and "dummy" may be mere lingo to some, but to the
editorial staff it means work and often times headaches. But it's fun. Fun for the staff to
produce, and fun for the student body to read. The publication is bifweekly.

The Commerczbl Club
The main purpose of the Commercial Club is to increase student knowledge along
general business lines. This idea was carried out by the presentation of various programs
arranged by a special committee. The club, under the direction of Mrs. Evelyn Weaver,
met on the first Tuesday of each month.
Among the programs presented was a discussion of Rider College and the courses of
study it offers presented by Miss Belva Saricks. That a good personal appearance is of
great value was demonstrated by a skit on good posture. The actual operation of a busf
iness concern was observed through a tour of the C. F. Martin E? Co. Guitar Factory.
Social activities were not overlooked by the club. The members enjoyed a Christmas
party and a picnic at Nazareth Borough Park in June.

For the first time the Science Club, represented by five members and the faculty
adviser, took part in a Science Congress held at Allentown High School on March 19.
While there they gave a demonstration entitled "Cooking and Heating by Induction."
To perform this experiment a specially constructed coil was used.
The purpose of the Science Club is to enable students to use the facilities of the school
to help further their knowledge of the sciences.
The Club, which is advised by Mr. Franklyn Kostenbader, meets in the laboratory
the last Wednesday of each month. At each meeting a picked committee of two or three
members performs and discusses an experiment in some branch of physics or chemistry.
"And so, fellow citizens, if you want labor unions to continue exercising their crippling
influence, if you want to witness a hopeless skyfrocketing of taxes, then vote the Demo'
cratic ticket !" On November 4, 1946, these unforgerable words were delivered by Robert
Leh, who left no doubts in the minds of the audience concerning which party he favored.
But Catherine Edelman, a staunch Democratic supporter, presented equally forceful
arguments, and before long, the auditorium was seething with conflicting political en'
Samuel Aristide favored the Republicans and upheld the opinions of Robert Leh,
while Franklin Kessler, completely sold on the Democratic party, voiced reasons for his
choice. The political rally was a success,
The Forum Club, under the supervision of Mr. Paul Goulding, meets on the fourth
Friday of each month. At these monthly getftogethers, the members discuss subjects
aimed at helping them to improve their public speaking and oral reading.
On February 7, 1947, Roberta Millheim, Charmaine Hutchison, and Clara Redline
told the club of their experiences at the Weekfend Work Camp, located in Philadelphia.

day, April 30. Sponsored by the Alumni Association, it was coached by Mr. Paul
Sarah Faust spoke on the topic, "Why Must We?" in connection with the prejudice
against japanese Americans in this country. Bernhard Mittemeyer spoke vigorously on
"Whither America," stressing the kind of individual citizen this country needs to make
democracy thrive. Robert Leh emphasized the prevention of a depression in his talk
entitled "The Vanishing American Dollar." Pauline Kenyon presented a vivid picture of
the millions of people starving in Europe in her topic, "Mom, I'm Hungry." George
Wolfer encouraged the conservation of natural resources in the United States in his talk,
"Things Can't Last Forever."
After the speakers delivered their speeches, Attorney Walter Peters, the judge,
presented the first prize to Bernhard Mittemeyer and the second prize to Pauline Kenyon.
In making his decision, Mr. Peters took into consideration the manner of delivery and the
contents of the speech.

The Photography Club, a new activity at Nazareth High School under the direction
of Mr. James Roth, gave students an opportunity to study the principles of photography.
At the bifmonthly meetings, members discussed the parts of the camera and their
uses and the composition of pictures. They also took pictures, using various cameras, and
experimented with the developing and printing of them.
Some students developed an interest in advanced methods of picture reproductions.
This introduction to photography will enable these students to continue this hobby.

Because successful social activities in a school are needed to help the students develop
into wellfrounded individuals, Nazareth High School has made sure the social life of its
students is not neglected. The Sophomore Party, the series of dances sponsored by the
Student Council, and the Prom fill this need,
Golden cornstalks, weird, black witches, and illuminated halloween masks lent
atmosphere to the initial social event of the school year-the Sophomore Halloween
Party. During the first part of the evening the students took part in group games. After
refreshments had been served, the scene changed, and the young people danced to the music
of Reuben Heller and his orchestra.
The Student Council sponsored a series of four successful and informal dances through'
out the year. These dances are open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors, and are very
popular among the students. White and red corn cobs contrasted against deep green,
provided an effective background for the Thanksgiving Dance. At the Christmas Dance,
two beautifully decorated Christmas trees, and holiday greens spread throughout the gym,
put everyone into a festive mood. Much to the delight of the students, Santa himself made
an unexpected appearance and added to his popularity by distributing sweets. After the
intermission, during which refreshments were served, all those present joined in singing
Christmas Carols. The group singing was led by our Brass Choir. Reuben Heller's
Orchestra furnished the music for both the Christmas and Thanksgiving dances.
The Winter Hop came next in our series of dances. Reigning supreme over this gala
affair, goodfnatured snowmen smiled down from their lofty perches above the baskets, on
the merry scene below. Fitting in with the scheme of things were crystal icicles and
winter greens. Students danced to the changing tempo of the Nomads Orchestra.
Nazareth High completed its social season with a good old barn dance. Girls, dressed
in fetching cotton frocks, danced merrily around the gym with their hillfbilly partners clad
in blue dungarees and flashy shirts. The Nomads Orchestra provided peppy music for the
square sets and folk dances and kept the crowd stepping. Bunches of straw and old'
fashioned lanterns added to the originality of the dance and helped to make it a success!
This year's football team, winning all but two games, lived up to everyone's expectaf
tions, especially as they defeated our archfrival, the powerful Wilson squad by a high score.
Captain Hildenbrand led his charges through six victories, but the team lost the all'
important Bangor game. The heavy, charging line, and light, fast backfield formed an
almost unbeatable combination. The punting, passing, and placefkicking was extraf
ordinary, and 50 yard punts, 40 yard passes, and 50 yard kickfoffs were expected in most
of the games.
Although the team won no championships, they played their best, and the games
were all interesting.

After losing the hrst three games, our basketball team went into the league game schedule and came out in a
tie for first place in the middle ofthe season. However, we were defeated in the playoffsg but we came back
the second half, a determined and revengeful team. Although the scores don't show it, the team played its
best to the very end.
Captain Kromer, with his stars, Marlyn Roth and "Dick" Ucherroth, scored a great many points. Roth
was elected to the league all-star championship team. The alumni game was the last one, and the high school
won it by a high score.

Last year's baseball team played marvelous ball. The team started the year with the
LehighfNorthampton County League Championship, defended it, and this year's squad
will try to pass it on.
In the play off game, Nazareth won the league championship from Hellertown. As
league champions, Nazareth played Bethlehem in the District 11 playoff and was defeated.
The pitching was excellent. In the first game with East Stroudsburg, Nardella, whose
record was 4 wins and 1 loss, struck out 23 and gave only 1 hit. In the Wilson game,
Hanner, whose record was 4 Wins and Z losses, homered to score the only run, thereby
winning his own game.
