MISS EMMA E. CHRISTIAN
To the Graduates!
My congratulations to you upon this happy occasion! May the ex-
periences of high school life help each one to discover the path of wisdom
for himself, With the brief introduction to the tools of scholarship which
you have received in your course at Eisenhower High School may you conf
tinue your studies through the years of a busy life. Une becomes an educated
person by virtue of patient study, quiet meditation, intellectual courage, and
a life devoted to the discovery and service of truth.
Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to work and to play and
to look up at the stars. Be satisfied with your possessions but not contented
with yourself until you have made the best of them. Such ambition will breed
in you temperance, self-control, diligence, strength of will, content, and a
hundred other virtues which the idle never know.
May you despise nothing in the world except falsehood and meanness,
and fear nothing except cowardice.
You have my earnest wish for success in your work. Greet each day
with reverence for the opportunity it contains and approach the night with
the joy that comes from work well done.
EMMA E. CHRISTIAN

Message to Youth!
AWAY BACK IN THE DIM DAWN OF HISTQRY, it Says in the book
of Genesis that "Enoch walked with God: and he was not: for God took him."
Professor Schneider in his great book, The Puritan Mind, calls attention
to the fact that the Puritans were not seeking something for themselves but
but were seeking to build the Commonwealth of God.
I think we realize that if we get anything founded that shall be remotely
like the Commonwealth of God, we shall have to have a sense of righteousness
and a sense that we labor not alone in separate futility but in cooperation
with God for a better social order and juster human relationships.
And so, the hopeful thing I see in the world today is that there is a grow-
ing sense in peoples minds of the reality of God as a contemporary.
If you want to walk with God, find out where the growing edge of civi-
lization is! Find out where the unsolved problems are! Find out where God
is trying to get something done for the welfare of humanity. And there, at
that point, plunge in and you will know God as Enoch and Micah knew him
and as the two on the Emmaus Road knew Him.

UR CLASS has set forth as its aims the highest and most
worthy ambitions. We feel that we have, through con-
tinuous work, successfully attained many of these goals,
an accomplishment that aids us in realizing the standard of
success as our own.
Throughout our school life we have made many cherished
ties of friendship. We believe that these affiliations will con-
tinue to enrich our lives in future years, Since we are the last
class graduating from old Eisenhower, it is only fitting that the
traditions which have surrounded us here should continue
throughout the coming years.
As a farewell to one of the happiest chapters in our lives
I sincerel tha k '
y n everyone for the cooperation that has aided
in making this, the Class of 1937 one that will b
, e remembered
and honored for years to come in Norristown High School.

way they handled the Christmas decorations. Ano-ther major

Are these students lovers of sports? Indeed, some of the
members already play on varsity and junior varsity teams.

Haunting music, soft lights. rhythmic Hgurcs and excited hearts marked the geniality of the junior
Prom held May 2, 1936,
Conscious that the affair was the first of high school functions, the juniors attached to it an air of
importance and awe. Aided by the impressive and extremely intricate decorations, the chattering,
noisy, and friendly group fell into swing immediately.
Disguised to a great extent, various corners of the Stewart gym provided means of entertainment
for all persons. Ping-pong and cards arrested much of our attentio-n.
To break the monotony of contiuous dancing, a delightful floor show was presented.
When the evenings entertainment was concluded the juniors reluctantly sauntered out, but with
an inner feeling of extreme content and satisfaction with ho-pe for more to come.
Last, but not least, we wish to mention that the whole success of this prom was entirely due to
our able and beloved sponsor, Miss Edna Earl Hagy.
Weeks of breathless expectancy were culminated on the evening of january 23rd, when the
Seniors held their Dance and Banquet at the Valley Forge Hotel.
The banquet hall fairly sparkled in the class colors of crimson and silver, and re-echoed with thc
laughter and amusing conversation that mark a joyous occasion. As a remembrance of this momen-
tous oiccasion. each senior was delighted to receive a tiny charm representing the emblem of our school.
The entertainment was furnished by james V. Loughran with Mrs. Ashenfelter leading the group
singing. Paul March and His Midshipmen furnished the rippling rhythm for dancing.
lt was entirely too soon in the general opinion. that the hands of the clo-ck pointed to eleven-
thrifty. marking the end of a grand evening - gone but not forgotten.

Senior Congress, the governing body of the Senior Class. is one of the most important of all our
student organizations. Only under its competent direction are all the senior activities carried out suc-
cessfully. lts members, which include one senior from every home room, deserve a great deal of credit
because the meetings are frequent and lengthy.
The oHicers were President-William Biaselle, Vice-President f- William Huganir, Secretary -
Mary Kuller. Treasurer-Sue Dyson.
The other members were Lester Sablosky, Daniel Ronca, lane Rolanc, Grace Clarke, Dorothy
Patterson, Frank Angelini, William Hendrickson. Iohn Cantelli. lane Root, Marion Witmer. Iohn
Thomas, Neil Granese, Robert Taylor, Ioseph Dubuque, Leighton Haney, Eleanor Ray, Edna Geiger.

Smith, Betty Stewart, Aubrey Bateman. Mabelle Glass, Naomi Rapine, Iune Benner, Mabel Leister.
Edward Baird, Dorothy Holt, Marie Steinhilber, Athleen Iaccbs, Merritt Bosler, Edward Davis.
The primary purpose of the Senior Assembly is to plan the assembly programs and produce
them. Certainly this work has been admirably completed during this past term by that group.
The body consists of two committees: one receiving outside performers who are to participate in the
prcgram and the other arranging for the publicity of coming events and also the publicity of events that

The Senior Play
Certainly George Kelly chose a perfect situation for satirical presenta-
tion in the form of a group of amateurs attempting to produce a play with the
technique of professional artists.
The "Torchbearers", a group of aspiring dramatists, under the voluble
direction of Mrs. Duro Pampinelli QSara Eagensj with the utmost serious-
ness and sincerity rehearse and produce a play "to extend the Little Theatre
Movement in America". It is this seriousness and utter abandonment on the
part of the characters themselves that cause the hilarious situations occurring
throughout the play.
The first act presents the characters, in the home of Frederick Ritter
tloseph Sheppardl, rehearsing the play which is to be presented the follow-
ing evening. The frequent interruptio-ns throughout the rehearsal by Mrs.
Pampinelli and the argument between Mr. Huxley Hossefrosse tlseighton
I-laneyl and Miss Florence McCrickett fMary Louise Crawfordl made this
scene a favorite with the audience. Despite the fact that the play is prim-
arily a comedy, Mr. Kelly has, in a very subtle manner, injected a bit of
character study into it.
The second act occurs back-stage at the Horticultural Hall, and the cast
actually rollicked throughout the entire second scene. The no-vel setting
combined with the desperate actions of the cast to make the "play" a success
invoked howls of laughter from the three individual audiences. The play
was presented three successive evenings, November 26, 27, and 28.
The third act, in the main, is a struggle between Mr. and Mrs. Ritter
tloseph Sheppard and Mary McMullinl in regard to Mrs. Ritter's future.
Of course Mrs. Pampinelli is there admonishing the "cruel husband" in his
attempt to- keep Mrs. Ritter off the stage. Mr. Ritter finally consents to his
wife's proposed stage career.
Mrs. Nelly Fell fAdeline Goodmanl was excellently played. The
straight forward opinions which this character extended always brought forth
a laugh from the audience. Mr. Spindler fFrederick Gordonl, the indis-
pensable man, portrayed Mrs. Pampinellis "yes" man. All characters played
their roles in an excellent manner. with no exception.
I-ll-EYE, the student weekly, guaranteed the play Uto be the most en-
tertaining and most hilarious ever presented upon a Norristown stage."
HI-EYES prediction was right. The Senior Class presented the play in
a commendable style.
There is no doubt in regard to the fact that much of the excellence of
the production was due to Miss Rebecca W. Price, the directo-r, and Gene
Watt. the student director.

The highest distinction in Eisenhower is to become a member
of the Norristown Chapter of the National Honor Society. Our
group belongs to this nation-wide organization, which publicly
recognizes student merit.
Character, Scholarship, Leadership, and Service are the
four cardinal principles. lt is for these outstanding qualities
that the deserving are honored by membership.
As a group, the Honor Society performs numerous worthy
acts. lt sponsors the Ho-nor Book, in which the most notable
seniors of each class are permitted to sign as a reward for
exceptional service. In recent years the graduate file has been
under the care of the society. This file keeps a record of the
past and present status of all graduates of the high school during
the last five years. The organization also aids as requested in
any school project. On March 5, the members rendered their
first duty of this kind by assisting with the College Night pro-

With the publication of this "Spice" another chapter in Eisenhower
histo-ry has been written, A notable chapter it has been for Spices have
come and Spices have gone, but this edition has the distinction of being the
last to be presented to the student body from this, the old school. Lost to
the future classes will be the friendly atmosphere of the building and the
mystery of the tower, but theirs will be the opportunity of the new, and
Like everything else around N.H.S., Spice is a graduated affair. lt
started its career in 1896 as a monthly magazine and it remained so until
1931. It was a seasonal publication, that is, there was a fall issue, a Christ-
mas issue, one for graduation, a spring edition, and another graduation issue.
The cover was made of co-lored drawing paper, and pictures were indeed
scarce. Witness the difference. The 1937 edition of Spice is the biggest
and best yet, for the size of the pages has been materially increased, and
scores of pictures are telling their own story.

all high schools was: Resolved that all .electric utilities should
be governmentally owned and operated.
During the debating season, the club had guest debaters on
two different occasions: Ursinus College QMenl versus Upsala
College and Ursinus College lWomenl versus Lebanon Valley
College. These debates enabled us to gain certain points of
improvement from college debaters.

The Blue Book, one of the three publications of our high
school, will be published annually starting this year. The main
purpose of this book is to acquaint the Sophomores and new
students with the rules, customs, and activities of the school.
One of the main features of the Handbook is the list of
suggestions for book reports which every one needs during his
three year course. The schoo-1 songs and cheers have been re-
vised so that everyone can sing and cheer our team on to victory
at the football games. If you haven't already planned your
course of study for the coming year or years, the Handbook
will give you all the information you need about the subjects
you may take, This book is the only place where all the build-
ings that comprise our school are gathered together and put into
one place. This remarkable feat is only made possible by a lane Vink
plan of the school which is found in the Blue Book.
After much hard work by the staff under the sponsorship
of Miss Elva Blakey a completely revised issue with many new
features was published this year.

The honors for bravery and faithfulness go this year to the Eisenhower
Band for its suffering during the season of rainy football games. It is an
exceptional credit to N. H. S. to be supported by such a fine grc-up. In

various types. We congratulate the band for its staunch and excellent work
during the school year.

because of its many helpful activities. Some of these were conducting 'ipepu
meetings, keeping a scrapbook composed of clippings concerning our students,
their activities and fun, and cooperating in suburban student council con-
ferences. At these conferences, schcols in the suburban district discussed
problems for school improvements.

previous Council, and undertook many other projects. Representatives were
sent to various Student Council Conferences where "Student Leadership"
and other topics relating to student life were discused. The council also
aided in the settlement of the traffic question, which was so prevalent during
the second semester.

Honor, loyalty, and service are the ideals of the Traffic Squad. Cer-
tainly during the past year they have fulfilled these by assisting and co-
operating with the principal and faculty in maintaining safety and order.
The Traffic Squad develops tact in handling crowds and inspires in its offi-
cers a sense of duty and character develo-pment.
Entertainment as well as service is rendered by the squad. "The Tra-
ffic Hour" this year was a variety program. Salvatore Nave, Leslie Shaw,
Thomas Herdman, William Tompkins, Willis Bosler, and Ira Singleton play-
ed the opening number selection. Other features of the program were: a
dance by Ralph Smith and Richard Templin, a skit, an accordion solo by
Sullivan Angelucci, and a guitar and banjo duet by Anthony Riccardelli and
Ioseph Sortino. All appeared in the finale.

With an aggregation of light, but hard-fighting boys, Coach
Lewis produced a winning gridiron machine. Playing heads up
football, the Eagles completed a tough schedule of nine games.
losing only two. The team won no championship, but through-
out the entire season showed the highest degree of sportsmanship
and team spirit which was a credit to the school.
The Eagles opened the season with a thrilling 6-3 victory
over Olney High of Philadelphia, and followed this victory with
another, Haverford 0, Norristown 33. On the following Satur-
day, Norristown conquered a strong Pottstown team 7-0 in a
game that was played on a rain-soaked field. The Eagles then
journeyed to Radnor for a Friday afternoon game and emerged
victorious, 27-0. Returning home the team continued its victory
march by trouncing Upper Darby 34-0. Abington came, saw,
but was conquered 19-0. Then in the big game of the year
Norristown downed Lower Merion by the decisive score of
18-7. This game was played in Villanova Stadium before a
crowd of over 10,000 people. After winning their first seven
games. the Eagles met their Waterloo, Chester High. 9-0. In
the annual Turkey Day clash with Germantown Norristown lost
their seccnd game of the season, the score was 6-0. In winning
seven and losing two, the Eagles amassed a total of 144 points
while the opposition garnered only 25.
Non-istown and Haverford in action
This year the system of having a different captain for each
game was inaugurated and met with unamimous approval. At
the end of the season Charles Taormina and Robert McCracken
were chosen as co-captains. ln addition to this honor, both
boys received recognition on All Suburban and All Scholastic
Led by Taormina, the center, the Eagles' line proved stal-
wart on both offense and defense. Flanking Taormina were
Edward Boyer and Edward McAdoo, two hard playing guards.
Two of our bigger boys, Ioseph Quinn and Iohn Payne, held the
tackle positions. The end positions were capably occupied by
Walter Hitchcock and Francis Basile.
With Robert McCracken, high scoring fullback, leading
the attack the Norristown backfield was a formidable threat
to all opposing teams. The halfback posts were manned by
Robert Bergey and Charles Fidler and the signal calling was
done by Thomas Whalen from the quarterback position.
When praises are being given, we cannot forget the plucky
scrub eleven which kept the varsity on their toes throughout
the season. Our coaches, Lewis and Burnett, are also in order
for high praise fo-r their work in developing our Eagles.

Not to be daunted by the misfortunes which followed them, 1936-37
basketball men concluded a highly successful season. Their league record of
seven wins and seven losses placed them in third position in the suburban
league. The Eagles were also undefeated in their three non-league tilts.
This year's team was slated to do big things until dame fo-rtune turned
her back and allowed old man jinx to enter the ranks of the team. First,
Peter Piermarini was lost and then both captains, Robert Bergey and Robert
McCracken, were removed from the varsity line up due to injuries. Still
this new team, which was green because of lack of experience, managed
to defeat every team in the suburban league except Lansdowne at least once.
Starting the season badly by losing to Lansdowne 26-15, the team re-
deemed themselves in the next four games by defeating Haverford, Alumni,
Pottstown, and Cheltenham. They then bowed to Upper Darby, Radnor
and Abington bfore beating Pottstown for the second time. Two more de-
feats were received by Norristown from Lower Merion and Lansdowne until
the Eagles humbled Haverford again, The last loss of the season was to
Cheltenham and then to make their season successful the Eagles won their
remaining games from Upper Darby, Radnor, Abington, and Lower Merion.
Outstanding performers were William Seavey, Guardg Thomas Whalen,
forwardg Seavy was third from the top of the leagues high scorers. Whalen
was also high in scoring and his floor work on the court was close to per-
fection. Others who saw most of the action during the season were: Edward
McAdoo-, and Charles Fidler, forwardsg Richard Martin, center, Gordon Gus-
tafson and Lester Sablosky, guards. Congratulations to Coach Lawson Earl.

For the last two years the girls' basketball teams have missed being
champions by one game. However, this year the girls overcame that ob-
stacle to become champions by having an undefeated season. Miss Mario-n
Blew, the girls' new athletic director, proved a great success with each girl
individually and with the school as a whole. '
The season began with the exciting interclass games which were won
by the "Scavengers", captained by Betty Tapley, high scoring junior 'varsity
The varsity schedule started with the only game in the Gotwals' gym,
Chester. Gur girls wc-n by a score of 48-15. The second game began a
series of away victories, Abington 33-315 Haverford 50-143 Upper Merion
37-18: Conshohocken 36-18: and Lansdale 40-37. The next home contest
was held at the Rittenhouse Iunior High School where the girls met Lower
Merion, who administered their only defeat last year. Each girl was de-
termined to win and again, after a hard fought game they were successful
by 48-29, The following week Miss Blew took her sextet to Spring City to
come home with their last but not least victory, 53-29.
The Junior Varsity also completed an undefeated season with many
Next year's team looks promising and we hope they will keep up the
excellent work under their new Captain, Eleanor Bingaman.

Second place--fifteen victories and two defeats. That was
the record of our 1936 tennis team. This team, captained by lack
Racquet, was not out of the championship picture until the last
match was played due to the fact that at the finish they were
but one match from first place. Playing on that team were three
seniors, lack Racquet, William Marberger and Morton Sab-
losky, and three juniors, Lester Sablosky, Warner Shannon and
This year's tennis started off with Charles White winning
the fall championship and Warner Shanno-n being elected to
captain the team. Coach Babb started indoor practice at Rit-
tenhouse as early as Ianuary, so that by the time the boys got
out of doors they were in top form. Besides the three lettermen
returning from last year, the team has Fred Gordon and Francis
Roncase, two new players and.Chris Huber and Fenton Cloud,
two boys from the junior varsity. With these seven boys Coach
Babb hopes to annex that long awaited title. Here is the hope
that our racket wielders bring home that championship.

The 1936 track season saw Norristown High lose its first
dual meet in many years, This meet was lost to Lower Merion:
however Norristown won all their other dual meets and placed
in the first three in all other meets. Thus the H367 season can
be considered a success.
This year's team began practice early in Ianuary and those
who braved the cold winter winds to come out were rewarded
in the annual Winter Track meet. As a beginning for this
year's team Coach Lewis has only four lettermen from last year.
They are Charles Rose, dash man: Theodore McKinney, high
jump: William Wills, middle distance runner: and Ic-hn Payne,
javelin thrower. Despite this apparent lack of material, Lewis
is expecting to put forth another good team. The reasons for
this optimism are the facts that the team has had plenty of prac-
tice and that last year's junior varsity men have sufficiently
developed since last year to take the places of the track-
men who- have graduated. We hope you are right, Coach

Led by captain Margaret Raimondi the 1936 track team finished the
season with a record of two meets won and two lost.
Hopes of an undefeated season were dashed in the first meet of the
year when Norristown was beaten by Bristol. The second successive lo-ss
was again at the hands of Bristol, this time in the "N" Club Interscholastics.
Although defeated in this meet, Norristown finished ahead cf Schwenksville
and Springfield. The Eaglettes fared better in the last two meets of the
season. The first victim was Springfield followed in turn by Abington.
Members of the squad included Captain, Margaret Raimondi: Catherine
Austerberry: Edna Bean: Eleanor Bingaman: Fern Finley: Sara Hallmang
Adele McConnell: Dorothy Radcliffe: Mary Roediger: Katherine Schiele:
Cornelia Spence: Dorothy Wagenhurstg and Hazel Pernet.
The "N" Club Award, given annually to the most valuable member of
the team was presented to Dorothy Radcliffe.
Track practice for the 1937 season got under way late in April under
the direction of Miss Marion Blew. Prospects for the season were Dorothy
Radcliffe and Eleanor Bingaman for the high jump, Adele McConnell for the
standing broad jump, Co-rnelia Spence in the running broad jump and dashes
and Hazel Pernet and Louise Iones who are outstanding in the throwing
events. Included among the candidates were a number of sophomores who
gave promise of developing into stars of some of the future N. H. S. teams.

The Norristown High School swimmers coached by Mr.
Thomas Brownback and captained by Richard Hays finished a
successful season with six victories and three defeats. Besides
accomplishing this, the Mermen took third place in the District
Interscholastics finishing behind Coatesville and Upper Darby.
The proteges of Brownback opened the season with con-
vincing triumphs over Eddystone and Overbrook by identical
scores 49-26. Fc-llowing these victories the N.H.S. splashers
swamped Radnor in the highest score of the season 54-21.
Olney, 1935-36 Public High School Champions came to
Norristown to nose out the Eagle contingent 38-37. They
vanquished Abington 41-34, only to lose two close ones to
Coatesville 32-40 and Upper Darby 36-39.
The Mermen closed the season trouncing Haverford 43-32
and Eddystone, a previous victim, 50-25.

The 1937 swimming team, although defeated in half its meets, Hnished
the season with a better record than the 1936 team. The girls won three of
their meets and lost three.
The season was opened at the Norristown Y with Radnor as the
oponent. The home team downed the visitors. Next the girls travelled to
the Sixty-third Street pool where they defeated Upper Darby by almost the
The third meet was at home with Haverford, Norristown went down
to its first defeat, lo-sing by seven points. In the next meet Norristown suf-
fered its second loss, this time at the hands of Cheltenham. The score was
the closest of the season, only two points separating winner and loser. The
team's third straight loss came at the hands of a strong Abington team, ulti-
mate winner of the Suburban title.
Finally, Norristown closed the season by defeating Coatesville in a
home meet, making a record of three victories, three losses.
High-scoring honors for the season go to jean Topley, freestyle and
diving star. She accounted for 58 points. Second highest was Betty Bodey,
the mainstay of the form-swimming contingent, with 342. Marion Root,
freestyle and backstroke ace comes third with 30.
The four varsity members who will graduate are Captain june Kulp.

As usual, Norristown High School and Coach Hedstrom
produced an impressive cross-country team. They finished third
in the Suburban Championships held at Cobbs Creek Golf
Course and lost only one dual meet. This defeat came at the
hands of Germantown on Thanksgiving by the score of 60 to 76.
After a 19-41 win over Olney, Norristown conquered Wil-
liamson Trade School. Lansdale, Ridley Township and West
Chester. Ambler and Haverford were then defeated in a tri'
angular meet. Pottstown was the next victim, and we also
avenged last year's only two defeats by beating Lower Merion
and Upper Darby by the scores of 25-30 and 19-36 respectively.
Individual scoring honors go to Captain William McNamee
and Sterling Krecker. Krecker is the only senior on the team:
therefore Norristown may be assured a good representation

Norristown High Schocl was again well represented on the
baseball diamond this year. Coach Harvey Fishburn faced the
arduous task of emulating last year's team which was barely
beaten by Haverford in a playoff for the crown.
As a nucleus for the bat-bearers Mr. Fishburn had fine
veterans, namely: Edward McAdoo, robust catcher: Robert
Behney, star pitcher: William Seavey, brilliant shortstop, con-
verted from a catcher: Raymond Mincarelli, fleet ball hawk and
the hard-hitting Iesse Benyish. He also had William Hendrick-
son, flashy third-sacker returning and Merritt Bosler, lanky first
baseman. Two members of last year's sophomore team filled
the right field bill, Leonard Piazza and Theodore Marinari.
The baseball team finished last season with a record of ten
victories and four defeats, a very remarkable record in view
of the losses that the team sustained through injuries and gra-

To Seek for Greater Heights
The years are rolling swiftly on,
Like golden clouds they fade away.
Our school days soon will be but mem'rieS,
Those treasures dear to us today.
We cannot live by dreams alone
Or visions of our school life past,
But face the future with a will
For time and youth are going fast.
We know the goal we're striving for,
It is "To seek for greater heights."
This we have chosen as our motto
Despite all challenging "ifs" and "mights".
We see a forking-road before us:
Two- ways of life from which to choose---
The one to the left is a smooth-paved road
So easy to travel-how can we refuse?
Many have taken this left-hand turn
Because there are pleasures along the way,
The idlers arnble slowly along
With little of work and plenty of play.
Off to the right is another road -
That is hard to travel: the surface is rough,
Yet men plod on by the sweat of their brow
For just drifting on is not enough.
aeL1 'fiii2ffiiElS5ritfiaii5i:se W ' A 'i if
ima r T is
V a lf
There are rivers to cross and mountains to climb
And the way leads on to an unused trail
That is almost hidden by briars and saplings
Yet those still plod on who dare not fail.
But how should we know as we stand at the fork
Which way is better? Which road leads to good?
And a wrong turn now may mean sadness forever
So let's think a while then go where we should.
If we turn back the pages of history
Through bygone ages we would find
Such names as Franklin, Lincoln and Clay
Who with efforts to greater heights had climbed.
Although we can't all be presidents great,
Lawyers, and doctors, and writers of fame
To do the best of whatever we do
Can surely be called a worthy aim.
So if we strive and seek and try Q
To set the world and all aright, i
Somewhere far on that narrow trail
We are sure to reach a greater height. f
As the giant new Eisenhower High School
becomes, at last, a reality, old N.H.S. reposes on its
laurels and settles back to anecdotage. It was in
1870 that wide-eyed scholars came first from the
Oak Street structure to the imposing brick De-
Kalb Street School. Only half its present size,
the building was surrounded by a shady, sturdily
fenced lawn, and was dignified by a small belfry.
Three rooms easily sufficed for the
students of the high school so that the
first floor and much of the second
housed the grammar grades and the
women teachers' room, the superin-
In 1884 A. D. Eisenhower became
principal and for the first time co-edu-
cation was introduced. The two direc-
tors served as the faculty and at the
end of each term students' marks were
published in the newspaper.
The McCann Library in rooms twelve and fourteen was open to the
school and public cn Tuesday and Friday evenings and Saturday after-
noon, and the auditorium, made up of rooms 21 and 23, served for opening
exercises and a study hall. Here, at Christmastide, the famed Antigone and
other plays were presented. Here, the principal, armed with a great hand
bell, proclaimed the change of classes.
On the third floor, too, was the combined mice and man lunch room.
When the students had finished their meal, the rodents scurried gracefully
up the gas pipes and cleaned the crumbs. Since there was no cafeteria, the
basement was used for Chemistry.
The really flourishing activities of this period lay in the Agassiz Society.
the Ciceronian Literary Society, which collected a very fine library of its

kind, and the Friday afternoon Literary Club. Senior events consisted of
the Christmas Class Day in which the Girls' Prophecy written by boys
and the Boys' Prophecy, by girls were presented, and of a trip around his-
toric Philadelphia conducted by Superintendent Gotwals. Football and
participation in the Penn Relays began early in the nineties and in 1896
"Spice" was issued for the first time.
The turn of the century brought with it an enlargement and complete
renovation of the school, and in 1903 the building was remodeled again to
its present style. Basketball made its bow at this period and in 1909 the
athletic Held was first used. From that time until the present the school has
shown magical growth. Student government has developed from a mere
puppet to a real controlling body. Forensics, dramatics and minor sports
have become essentials of the curricu-
lum. The Handbook and Hi-Eye, in
1928, became with Spice, regular pub-
lications of the school.
The promise of the much longed for
new school was realized in 1936, Dur-
ing the year plans have been formulat-
ed and foundations laid. We, of old
Eisenhower, see in the new building
not only a great physical growth, but
also a broadening of interest in the
development of education.

The Lost Will ond Testament
We, the graduating seniors of N.H.S., being slightly Uteched in the
haid" lthis is due to o-ur trying to puzzle out this craze of surrealisml, do
hereby bequeath to the members of Eisenhower the following items in this
our last will and testament:-
We leave our deepest sympathies to the Faculty because we realize that
there will never be another class like ours.
Also to the Faculty we leave a list of radio programs on which the star
attractions are comedians. lWe realize it is hard to get new gags, but now
that Social Security is in effect, all jokes over sixty-five years of age will be
To Miss Blakey we leave one gross of mouse traps so that she can de-
mouse her farm.
To "Curly" Lewis we leave. one bottle of wave-set and a book entitled,
"How to marcel the hair in ten easy lessons."
To Mr. Miller we leave a chain and padlock so that nothing so tragic
may ever again happen to his pet chair.
Salmjbo and Rambo leave their most unusual UI skill of writing col-
umns to W. Boyd Hill, the wizard of the typewriter, who, as 101 out of 93
people do, use the hunt and punch system.
We leave the juniors the old school with the hope that they graduate from
our new, super-clossal, gigantic 51,000,000 high school.
Unfortunately we have not the wherewithal to supply Mr. Melick with
the materials tot build a skyscraper, but, if he ever gets the urge, some time
after school he may drive out Markley Street and proceed to observe with
great interest the building of his new stamping grounds.
To the juniors who are lucky enough to get Miss Blakey next year we
leave one carload of aspirin tablets. We have already faced "Hamlet,"
"Macbeth," and "Paradise Lost."
Ralph Smith leaves that lilting tenor voice of his to Edgar Emery.
Ro-berta Evans leaves her remarkable factually it's astoundingj literary
ability to Kathryne Elsie Reifsnyder.
Harry Yoder, Sam Banham, Bill Biaselle, "Reds" Monahan, Bill Hen-
drickson, john Thomas, "Gunner"' Gordon, and a few others, leave their
titles as "men about town" to any junior or juniors who can stand the pace.
Bob McCracken and Hazel Pernet leave their athletic ability and good
sportsmanship to Bill Seavey and Dot Radcliffe respectively.
june Benner leaves to his sister, Doris, the burden of carrying on the
traditions of the Benner family in N.H.S. for one more year.
William Huganir leaves his ability to create masterpieces of penman-
ship to Bernard Rothman.
We also leave the sun, moon, stars, and everything that was nailed
down, to the classes that will follow in our foot-steps.
We have left just about everything in sight, so we hope the world has
left us a few positions not paying under one thousand dollars a week which
will not engage our time more than one hour per month.

On a Beethoven Symphony
The tense, hushed audience,
A lifted baton--
Then, the whisper of a violin,
A silken thread of melody
Weaving into a shining tapestry
Crashing chords and tender notes,
A wild free song, and pulsing sadness
Once again, the soaring melody

And conversation flows with "my",

What egotists we mortals be!

Be the building old and shabby.
And the walls lacking paint,
All within are warm and happy,
Studying while the lights grofw faint.
Windows rattle, floorboards creak,
Plaster falls from unseen places,
Even while the pipes do leak
Wisdom shines from sunny faces.
Cheers are raised for Alma Mater
By the ones who love her dear,
Love for her they ne'er will barter,
Though at times she does seem queer.
Let there be seven chambers in my heart:
And six shall be of earthly saddened things,
Of grey coals dying on a crumbled hearth,
Of thunder and a torrid summer noon,
Of Bach, and Schumann whispered to the moon,
Of foreign hills.
The seventh be a blinded nightingale.
That locked apart from all the fervid world
Doth see but dreams
And sings eternally,
Bathed in pale moonlight,
Bordered by Helds of snowy white,
Is a road. Crystal grass along the edges,
Pearly, patterned frost on all the hedges:
Only the drowsy driver softly singing,
The sleighbells faintly ringing,
Breathe the silent stillness cf the winter night
