PUBLIS HED VUeSCiow Our School BY THE CLASS OF 1954 DL (hornet Nazareth Area Senior High School NAZARETH, PENNSYLVANIA MEMBER OF COLUMBIA SCHOLASTIC PRESS ASSOCIATION MEMBER OF PENNSYLVANIA SCHOOL PRESS ASSOCIATION First High School erected in 1884—North Broad Street If in future years today ' s high school students leaf thru the pages of the Comet and recall with pleas¬ ure incidents and events of by-gone days, the staff will feel repaid for their months of labor spent record¬ ing the activities of this school year. We have tried to recall for our parents their high school life and to contrast it with ours as we have experienced it. We feel that our theme of Then and Now is particularly fitting in this the 200th year of the Bicenten¬ nial of Columbia University, since their theme of " Man ' s right to Knowledge and the free use there¬ of " also shows our town ' s struggle and attempt to broaden and enrich our educational offerings and to make them available to a larger area of our population. This struggle for knowledge is evi¬ denced by the progress made in our changed and enlarged educational facilities from our parents ' day to our day.

The primary purpose in forming the Joint Board was to provide by co-operative effort more and bet¬ ter secondary school facilities for the students in this area. Planning for a new high school building was be¬ gun almost immediately after the formation of the " jointure " and, thru the splendid co-operative efforts of the various districts of the jointure, the results of that planning are being realized in the building pres¬ ently being erected. y Ju za n lIt -- y irc(t yoln tScli ool ddoard Bushkill Township Vincent Altemose Robert E.

When Nazareth became a third class independent dis¬ trict in 1937, Mr. Marcks was chosen to be the District Superintendent. Then when the six-district jointure was formed in 1950, Mr. Marcks became the Superintendent of the Nazareth Area Joint High School as well as District Superintendent of the Nazareth Borough Schools. During the more than forty years that Mr. Marcks has been associated with the Nazareth Public Schools, his lib¬ eral and progressive policies have been instrumental in enlarging the educational opportunities thru curriculum enrichment and his foresight has made possible, at the least cost to the district, adequate physical enlargement to meet the ever-increasing enrollment. The Nazareth Public Schools owe much to his unobtru¬ sive approach, his unselfish devotion, and the diplomacy with which he has co-ordinated the school board and faculty efforts in developing and improving both the Bor¬ ough Schools and the Joint Area High Schools.

When the high school moved into the enlarged building in 1931, the library was put into a suitable room with a trained librarian in charge. Today the high school library comprises a fully classified and cata¬ logued collection of about 7,000 volumes of serviceable books, to¬ gether with current bulletins, pamphlets, five newspapers, and over 50 magazines. Approximately 1,000 books are circulated monthly among the students and faculty. In 1948 Nazareth High School began guidance counselling as a service to the students, with one counsellor for the senior high school. Today Mr. Felve r is the sophomore counsellor; Mr. Hughes, the junior; and Mrs. McGonigle, the senior. Part of the guidance work is to help students choose their course— academic, commercial, or general—and to see that every student has the required subjects and credits needed for the college or school he wishes to attend after graduation. During the year Career Conferences, open to all students, are scheduled to explain various vocations. 1. Students use newspapers, magazines, and books during library study periods. 2. Assisted by Mrs. McGonigle, senior guidance counsellor, Shirley Abel, Robert Shekletski, and Theresa Deutsch examine vocational pamphlets, 34 Senior English students re-work compositions. i i added WorL on C -ompoditiond lit. h I Since English is important in everyday living, the c various phases of this subject—literature, grammar, and composition—are included in each year ' s course. .0.H Beginning three years ago the best creative writ¬ ing of the English classes was published annually in a literary magazine.

To show the steady growth of the science depart¬ ment, today there are three science teachers with greatly increased science equipment. Previously, all experimenting had been done in groups. To make teaching more effective, additional demonstrating ap¬ paratus and working aids were installed. To take care of the non-college students who wish a good science background, in 1938 consumer science was added to the general course. 37 r JUe Study rjCanyuayeA and Around 1914 Latin and German were included in the only course offered in high school while Greek was an elective.

Since then, office practice has been added to teach the use of various machines prevalent in our local offices. Among the machines which our students learn to operate are calculators, duplicating machines, and the Allen Wales. The most recent additions to our office equipment include an electric typewriter and a dictaphone. Sms ' ®SSI OHIO £5 1. In office practice students are operating various business chines. 2.

In 1924 Industrial Arts was introduced in Nazareth High School. Because of the present limited room and facilities, only twenty-two boys could be scheduled this year. With modern machinery the stu¬ dents are able to make stands, tables, cabinets, gun racks, and other furniture. Besides making furniture, students learr to sand, varnish, paint, and refinish ma terial. 40 1 ' 1 ! L_ - ■_1 _J fa.;..,, O : s " To learn hair styling and care, students practice on each other. In 1924 sewing was introduced at Nazareth High School. Some years later the course was broadened to include interior decorating, budgeting, good groom¬ ing, manners, and personality improvement. There are approximately twenty girls, including sophomores, juniors, and seniors, in this year ' s cloth¬ ing class. These students learn how to select proper clothing, and study color and textile designs, the care of clothing, pattern selection, and clothing construc¬ tion. In 1924 art was added to the curriculum. Although at first there were few senior high school students, the interest in art increased so that separate classes were scheduled for the sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Today there is a tremendous interest in the various phases of art, but because it is a required course in junior high school only twenty-nine senior high stu¬ dents could be accommodated in art classes this year. Annually the Nazareth Junior Woman ' s Club offers three prizes to students for outstanding excellence in art work for the year. In 1953 Gene Rader won fi rst prize; William Clift, second; and John Price, third. To advertise the senior play, art students paint posters. 41 1.

By state legislation in 1945, the health pro¬ gram was expanded to provide a thorough medical and dental examination for every student while enrolled in the odd grades. Audio-meter and visual testing is an impor¬ tant part of this examination. Special em¬ phasis is placed on the correction of defects. Chest x-rays are done annually. All boys participating in competitive sports are examined by Dr. John Fraunfelder, school medical inspector. x earning by L 2 ), ' winy As a means of promoting better teen-age driving, Driver Education, in which the stu¬ dents are taught the functioning and main¬ tenance of the car, rules of the road, and are given instruction in a dual-control car, was introduced in 1947.

Each girl chooses her project and makes a dress, an eve¬ ning gown, play togs, slacks, a skirt, a blouse, a suit, a duster, or pajamas. Besides working on garments, the students study various textiles and learn to work with them. Styles and color charts are studied, enabling the students to select styles and colors to com¬ plement and fit their personalities. Students learn how to care for clothing, and the fundamentals of good grooming, and what constitutes good manners. The part of the work that is devoted to good grooming in¬ cludes the care of the hair, face, nails, and good posture. The girls are also taught how to apply make-up to accent their natural looks. In May of each year at the Junior Senior High School Fashion Show, the students model their creations. Three prizes, selected by a committee of three judges, are awarded for the best work¬ manship, styling, and suitability of individual projects. The following senior high school students earned awards: Jacque- lynne Hartman, first prize for a spring coat; Grace Rodgers, second prize for a skirt and blouse; and Roberta Shoemaker, third prize for an informal afternoon dress. Last year the three judges were Mrs. Harley Yeisley, Mrs. Raymond Christman, and Mrs. Troy Rhoades. 1. Myrtle Shafer and Kathryn Weiss model dress suits. 2.

The many varieties of subjects done in these different media include landscape, illustrations, poster design, small sculpture and pottery, fabric design, portrait sketching, and cartooning. About fifteen years ago for the first time posters were entered in a contest at the Nazareth Senior Woman ' s Club Flower Show. Since then the students have participated in annual Poppy, Health, Lions Club Minstrel, Junior Chamber of Commerce, and Safety poster contests. In design students create patterns suitable for fabric or wallpaper. Then in correlation with Home Economics classes the girls design and stencil decor¬ ations on skirts, blouses, and aprons which they have made. About ten years ago ceramic art was added to the course. Originally the work was done in self-harden¬ ing clay. This limited the articles to knick-knacks and decorative pieces. Approximately a year later the first 3 " by 4 " by 4 " kiln was added. This kiln limited the number of students that could participate in cer¬ amics. Today we have three kilns, the largest is 16 " by 20 " by 20 " , so that the students can make larger articles. These extra kilns enable more students to participate and also permit a greater variety of ob¬ jects to be made. Ceramics, although comparatively new, is one of the most popular fields of art work. ear 3 rt (Creations 1.

Since our shop is equipped with up-to-date ma¬ chinery, the students make stands, tables, wardrobes, chests, gun racks, and other furniture. Besides mak¬ ing furniture, students also learn how to sand, var¬ nish, paint, and polish their projects. Since industrial art is elective in senior high school, approximately twenty-five boys were scheduled for this course the past year. Each year there is a showing of the student work at the annual Art Exhibition. Last year the following boys were awarded prizes for outstanding work: Ralph Wentzell and John Smith, co-winners, first prize; Arthur Reph, second prize.

In 1953 the Blue Eagles of Nazareth Area High School finished the season as co-champions of the Le¬ high Northampton Interscholastic Athletic League. The only game lost was an independent one, played with the undefeated Whitehall Zephyrs. Opening the season with Nesquehoning, the fight¬ ing Blue Eagles ' fumbles and inexperience proved costly. After stopping many of Nesquehoning ' s drives, the Nazareth eleven finally started a drive of their own, climaxed by a touchdown run by Don Nikles. In the second half Don Nikles again climaxed twc drives by scoring two more touchdowns, and And) Leh, Jr. added the two extra points for a 20-0 score In the second game the Eagles met the powerfu Whitehall Zephyrs, who took a commanding leac early in the game. Nazareth ' s only score came on the sixty yard run by Ray Douglas. Andy Leh, Jr. addec the extra point and the score stood 27 to 7 in favoi of Whitehall as the whistle sounded. With the scent of victory in their nostrils the Blue Eagles pursued their second and third league victories on two consecutive Saturdays. Both Hellertown anc Coplay succumbed quite readily.

Pen Argyl pi ayed hard an d staved I off the Eagles ' offense until the closing minutes of the J iecond quarter when Frank Nikles, after a 75 yard narch, finally scored on a short pass. The second half proved to be just as difficult as the first half with great defensive football being played by Pen Argyl, holding the Blue Eagles five times within the 10 yard line. Nazareth scored once more before the game ended to nose out Pen Argyl 1 3 to 0. Bangor, a traditional rival, played host to the Blue Eagles in an important and decisive league contest. Metz scored the only touchdown of the game on a pass from Ray Douglas, Protecting their one touchdown lead, the Blue Eagles played fine defensive football the remainder of the game to eke out a narrow win over Bangor. Eager to avenge the previous year ' s defeat, the Blue Eagles met the Emmaus eleven with high spirits. Playing on a muddy field, the Nazareth eleven bull¬ dozed their way to three touchdowns. Emmaus scored only once, a long pass in the final quarter. Metz breaks loose on an end run. In the contest that was the gate¬ way to the championship, the Blue Eagles met the East Stroudsburg eleven. The game was closely con¬ tested throughout. Andy Leh, Jr. broke a last quarter tie by scoring the game¬ winning touchdown on a quarterback sneak, resulting in a 14-7 win.

Nazareth and Wilson met in the annual Thanksgiving Day game to decide the league championship. Af¬ ter a hard fought first half, both teams managed to score one touch¬ down. In the second half the Blue Eagles managed to get two quick touchdowns to pull ahead decisively. Wilson, pressing hard, managed to tie the score before the game ended. Having entered the game as the un¬ derdog, the Blue Eagles completely outplayed the Wilson Warriors and could feel proud of their achievement.

The ninety-five pound class had to be forfeited as Naza¬ reth had no one who could make that weight. Notable among the individual achievements of the year were: (1) Harold Wilson ' s non-losing streak in his own weight class during the past two years; (2) William Daney ' s winning five out of eight bouts with four of these being pins; (3) and Richard Metz, a first- year squad member, winning six out of nine bouts. 1953-54 WRESTLING SCHEDULE Opp. N.A.H.S.

V. BASKETBALL SQUAD Back around 1918 basketball became an official school sport with a faculty coach; before that time students played in various places about town. The 1953-1954 edition of the Nazareth Blue Eagles Basketball team overcome a height deficiency by showing great aggressiveness and ac¬ curate shooting. These features enabled the cagers to post a .500 record in league plays. The highlight of the season came when the Blue Eagles upset the powerful Fountain Hillers, who were runner-ups in the league race, by a 64 to 59 score on the Nazareth hardwood. The bulk of the scoring hinged on the fine efforts of Bill Agnew and Captain Bob Shekletski. Agnew, the team ' s most consistent scorer, set a new school season scoring mark by rimming 397 points, and set a new school single game mark by pumping home 45 points in his final scholastic ap¬ pearance against the Green Waves of Pen Argyl High. Bill also copped the league high-scoring laurels. Shekletski took second high scoring honors with 315 points. His driv¬ ing lay-ups and accurate foul shooting accounted for most of his tallies. Shekletski moves into position to receive a pass from a teammate. Coach Don Smith, Manager Dale Robert Shekletski, Andrew Leh, Jr., VARSITY BASKETBALL SCHEDULE N.A.H.S.

For a number of years the teams practiced on a nakeshift infield to the east of the present high chool, with an occasional practice on the Nazareth tall Military Academy diamond, the present site of he Memorial Library. When the Trombower Athletic ield was built, a baseball diamond was laid out on he east end of the field and for a number of years his sport was carried on here. Finally baseball ac- |uired its own field and today has a spacious lot idjacent to the football field. In the early years the games were played on Sat- irday afternoons on Nazareth Hall Military Academy liamond. Large crowds attended the games and com- etition was keen. Today baseball is an after-school sport with spectator interest somewhat less than in past years. Over a period of years Nazareth High dominated the baseball championships in the Lehigh-Northamp- ton County League, with two District XI Champion¬ ships and numerous undefeated seasons. The 1953 Blue Eagles completed a highly success¬ ful season with seven wins and four losses, while the six and two league log gave them a three-way tie for league honors with Parkland and Bangor. Naza¬ reth eliminated Bangor by a seven to three count but was defeated, in the championship game, by Park¬ land to the tune of nine to one. Walakovits led the batters with a .410 average, followed by Senneca and Rissmiller with .403 and .350 averages, respectively. In the pitching depart¬ ment Weaver had a clean slate with a four and zero record.

Prior to the 1929-30 season, the girls ' athletic teams were coached by a member of the high school faculty and basketball was the principal sport enthusiastically played on an interscholastic basis for approximately fifteen years. Since 1934 the girls ' sports have become intramural.

For several years after the introduction of physical ducation into the high school curriculum, Coach An- rew Leh handled both boys ' and girls ' gym classes, ginning in the fall of 1929, a woman faculty mem- sr was hired to teach physical education and coach ie girls ' sports. Last spring, for the first time, badminton and archery were added to the sports—volleyball, basket¬ ball, and baseball—already taught in gym classes. The girls enjoy these sports indoors as well as out¬ doors when weather permits. Mrs. Margaret Heckman has charge of girls ' physi¬ cal education and coaches all girls ' sports and the cheerleaders.

Braving the brisk autumn winds, hockey en¬ thusiasts competed for the school championship. After rough and vigorous battles, the Stopettes won the final championship. After fifteen exciting basketball games, the semi-final and school champions were chosen. The junior Jollyteers defeated the sophomore PS ' s for the semi-final crown. Then the Jollyteers, led by co-captains Yvonne Jones and Stepheny Nichols, captured the school championship from the senior Zombies, 20 to 19, in an exciting game. In the 1953 volleyball season, the senior champs defeated the junior semi-final winners for the school championship. The crack of a bat, the sound of running feet, and excited voices ushered in the softball sea¬ son.

It had four pages with three columns to a page. Its staff of twen¬ ty-five members covered school, alumni, sports, and club news, book reviews, and editorials. There were no photographs and few cuts. During the year thir¬ teen issues were published. The Blue and White Standard of today has been much improved by constant evaluation and criticism from the Columbia and the Pennsylvania School Press Associations. It usually contains four pages with four columns to a page, one of which is devoted to junior high school news. The present staff is composed of thirty-eight mem¬ bers, three of whom are co-editors. Photographs and cuts enliven and add interest to the paper. Eight is¬ sues are published during the year.
