Published by the
NORWIN UNION HIGH SCHOOL
The 1934 ANNUAL is published
to bring back to you, in later
years, happy memories of four
years spent at Norwin.
In order to accomplish this
purpose, our book has under-
gone many changes, so that
school life here at Norwin would
be presented in the manner in
which we lived it each day.
We hope that we, the staff, have
accomplished our purpose, and,
that this book will be treasured
by you ad infinitum.
To MISS JONES, friend,
helper, confidant of our
four happy years at
Norwin, patient sharer of
our troubles, and willing
arbiter of just causes, we
this volume, in the hope
that she may thus realize
our appreciation of her
efforts in our behalf.
Building the Norwin
The 1934 Year Book was early planned.
General johnson's price boosting NRA made
this necessary in order to obtain the lowest
possible rates in photography, engraving, and
September saw the foundation of the year
book. In that month the thinkers thought and
thought, and decided to turn out a year book
that would go down in history as something
different-an informal year book.
Up to this time, the formal yearbook, stiff,
dull, colorless, was the trend of annuals at
Norwin. They contained page after page of
group pictures and portraits resembling rogue
gallaries and drab military platoons without
the color and beauty of uniforms. This, the
thinkers decided, would never, never do. A
radical change had to be made. It was.
The foundation laid, we set about to build
the wall. Fortunate was the staff in contact-
ing one Mr. Wise, Pittsburgh agent of the
firm that did our engraving-Jahn and Ollier,
Mr. Wise, radically against the moth-eaten
conventional in year books, brought us many
examples of informal year-booking to ex-
amine, and applying the acid test of his well-
based counsels, we decided our foundation was
well laid. This new-found friend also helped
us with many technical problems in putting
out a different book.
Mr. Frank H. Steele of Wilkinsburg, ro-
bust, fussy, experienced, was chosen as
photographer. He, too, an informalist, was
delighted with our plans, and he and Mr. Wise
found little difficulty in cooperating with us.
Mr. Steele immediately set to work on the
senior portraits. I-le made the auditorium
stage his studio, snapped all seniors in this se-
cluded spot. Retakes were made both at Nor-
win and in his home studio at Wilkinsburg.
Next on the program came the underclasses
and the juniors. On nice days, these classes
squatted patiently on the terrace fronting the
east wing of the building. These groups tin-
ished, more outdoor scenes were snapped.
Best among them, a view of the school, taken
from across the brook, was truly a work of
Other outdoor scenes were students stroll-
ing on the school walks, class officers loiter-
ing on the bridge, and the football squad and
the line-up of the first string varsity as they
appeared in the Turtle Creek game.
When inclement weather forced the pic-
ture taking indoors, he took an interior scene
of the school portal, affording an excellent
vista of the two busts which guard our main
doorway, a view of the school board in action,
our faculty, dignified and aloof, the bi-weekly
and year book staffs, musical organizations,
the basketball squad, the first string cagers in
action, and many scenes, vivid, interesting, of
gymnasts in action.
In the meantime, the staffs were picked.
The editorial board consisted of the three edi-
tors of the bi-weekly-Paul Fulton, Marion
Wilson, and Elbert Barclay. Charlotte Mil-
len, Bruce Boyle, Marie Prengamen, Albert
Powell, and Lorraine Neiman were chosen
respectively senior, junior, sophomore, fresh-
man, and ninth grade class editors. Marga-
ret Collier was chosen feature editor, and Gale
Vifohlert, Florence Daily and Florene Garlow,
picked as activities editors. The sports re-
porter, Bill Leaf, was transferred from the bi-
weekly staff. Art editors were Art Lindh and
Oscar Craycraft, staff artists of the '33 Year-
book. Typists were the regular bi-weekly key
pounders with fancy titles.
The business staff consisted of Bill Crooks-
ton, Bill Ralph, Dick Battiston, Art Herbster,
John Datz, Harry White, and Scott Lauffer.
George Sistek, fussy, persistent, ambitious,
although not a regular business staffer, con-
tributed much to the success of the book
through his fruitful salesmanship.
The business staff, energetic and enterpris-
ing, organized and began the extensive cam-
paign to sell the book. The school profusely
canvassed, the sales staff turned their heads
toward getting support from community busi-

lluring this campaign, the editorial staff,
never lazy, was busy gathering up the material
that tills these pages. The boys' sports scribe
summed up all the varsity football and basket-
ball games, and wrote on intra-mural and ine
terclass competitive sports. The girls' sports
editor related the year's actiyity i11 girl's
The class historians were busy recounting
the days spent here by their respective classes.
Associate editors plunged into work on various
subjects: Norwin traditions, the musical or--
ganizations, math club, and other activities,
versed the poetry, described the drama of the
year, and wrote up the Norwin bi-weekly and
year book staffs. Staff artists drew the care

The editorial board read, corrected. and re-
wrote to their hearts' content, then presented

contracted to print the book, transformed the
typewritten copy into lead and antimony.
Proofs were made from all the galleys of
type and many were the hours sweated away
by the proof-reading static.
Proof, read three times, thoroughly, seemed
practically memorized. The galley proofs,
well corrected, were then submitted to the
printer and the corresponding corrections
made in the type. Once more proofed were
the corrected galleys, and once more the stall'
sat down to a few more hours of marking cor-
rections on the new proofs. This process was
repeated until, to the best of the stat:f's knowl-
edge. all copy was absolutely correct. The
many bunches of slugs were now ready to be
arranged in their proper order.
The printer, following the instructions sent
him. then arranged the ditlierent sections of
the book, matched phimto-engravings with cor-
responding type. The ditferent forms were
then placed in the press and printed, sixteen
pages to the sheet, eight on each side. These
sheets were folded, cut, made into booklets.
and these booklets bound to form the book.
As a tinal touch. the attractive twoftone blue
cover, made by the National I'ublishing Coin-
pany of l'hiladelphia, was attached.
The 1934 Year llook, no longer a dream
or an ideal, has become a reality!

The year 1933-34 saw great advancement
in the music art at Norwin, although none of
the school's musical groups were entered in
County Forensic League contests.
These groups which so Well upheld Nor-
win's standard of music were the Band, the
Orchestra, the Girls Lyric Club, the Boys
Glee Club, and the newly-formed A Cappella
The band played at all the football and bas-
ketball games, appeared at chapel programs,
took part in many civic parades and celebra-
tions, and topped off the year with the annual
concert on March 2.
Among the many beautiful selections played
at this concert, one stood out most-Jimmie
Weaver's own composition, "Norwin March",
dedicated to the students of our alma mater.
The band held practice each Monday night
throughout the year and will continue to prac-
tice during the summer.
The Norwin orchestra, directed by Mrf
Sample, was late in getting organized this
year but nevertheless soon made up for its
tardiness by its excellent performance at the
concerts given March 23 and April 27.
At these concerts also appeared the Boys
Glee Club, largest in the schools' history, the
Girls Lyric Club, attired in white, the massive
combination of both clubs, Virginia Irwin,
violinist, and the newly organized A Cappella
Chorus, dressed in blue and gold robes.
The A Capella Chorus was given most rec-
ognition of any musical organization this year
when Mr. Claude Rosenberry, Director of
Public School Music of the State Department
of Public Instruction, made arrangements for
this group to appear on a coast-to-coast radio
broadcast Sunday, April 8, as Pennsylvania's

"The Youngest", a three act comedy by
Philip Barry, was presented in the Norwin
auditorium Friday, April 13, by an all-school
This, the one and only all-school play of the
year, was the first under the direction of Miss
Martha Painter. It was sponsored by the
Norwin bi-weekly and year book staffs to
make up a deficit in their funds.
The cast was selected from the sophomore
and senior classes only, because of the incon-
veniencesmcaused by the two session day. The

through a committee of art students directed
by Mr. Edwards, and assisted by members of

Gaiety and mirth at Norwin ran high
when the social events of the year took
place in the school gymnasium. The first
major event of this kind was the Christmas
hop, sponsored by the Norwin staff. This
was a merry dance held in honor of good
old Saint Nick and took place in an atmos-
phere of his favorite colors-green and red.
Christmas trees were liberally scattered
about and added to the spirit of the occa-
sion. This was on December l5th. The
Society Smoothies provided the music and
sent the dancers whirling around the floor
in grand style.
The next star occasion was the annual
Letterman's Rall, held May 4th, and was a
gala affair indeed. Herbert Fritsche's or-
chestra presided in a gym decked in blue,
gold, and white. This dance is always one
of the red-letter school shindigs and pro-
vides much enjoyment for those lucky ones
In Commencement VVeelc, dedicated to the
Seniors, the Juniors do their part nobly,
giving a farewell reception to the departing
upperclassmen with a Grand Promenade. It
usually takes place on Wednesday of that
week, but this year that day happens to be
Memorial Day, so the dance has been
moved up to Thursday, May 31. It will be
done in grand style, as always, and this
year promises to be one of the history-mak-
ing affairs among Junior Proms. The. Prom
is always anticipated with eager gladness
for several reasons. The primary one, of
course, is the pleasure and enjoyment al-
ways derived from such an event, but there
are others too. It is the last school dance
which the Seniors attend as students of
Norwin and so is given in their honor. They
are the guests of the evening and all efforts
are expended towards making them forget
the sad fact that soon they will be only
alumni-no longer members of Norwin
Besides these big, formal dances, there
were two other socials held. These also
were much enjoyed, for dances of this kind
help to round out high school activities and
add an extra zest to the work and play of

The Norwin Senior Math Club was formed
by a group of twenty-four senior boys who
were taking their fourth year of mathematics,
solid geometry and trigonometry. Faculty
advisor for the organization was the senior
math teacher, Mr. McMunn.
The aim of the club was to promote greater
interest in the higher mathematics and en-
gineering. This aim was accomplished
through bi-weekly meetings at which addresses
were given by local engineers, industrial
films shown and reports given by the members
of the club.

Starting the season with only one regular
and tive letter men left over from the 1932
varsity, the Norwin gridmen went through
an unsuccessful season as far as victories
were concerned, but the players displayed un-
usual hghting spirit which promises a strong
team for the coming season. The team play-
ed exceptionally well and deserves much
praise for their line play against Greensburg,
VV. P. l. A. l.. co-champion, Sewickley, Pit-
cairn, and Turtle Creek. Norwin dropped
six games and won three.

Norwin's rebuilt team opened the football
season against lfast McKeesport High School
on the home turf. The visitors, sporting a
powerful and underrated eleven surprised all
dopestcrs by upsetting the lllue and Gold lZf6.
Early in the game, llill Senior, captain and
only regular from last year's squad suffered
a broken collar bone which kept him out of
action until the Jeannette game.
Nokwix ...... SEWICKL1-:Y
On Saturday, October 7, the Blue and
Gold grid machine topped the Sewickley
Township Bisons to register their initial vic-
tory of the season. After playing listlessly
throughout the first half of the game, the
Clavvsonites rallied strongly and handed the
visitors a stinging 19-6 defeat.
Nokwix ...... GREr:Nsi2URG
The following Saturday, a hard-fighting
Norwin eleven traveled to Greensburg and
dropped a close game to the powerful county
seaters, 13-7. The deciding touchdown came
as the result of a lucky break, when a Nor-
vvin fumble flew into the arms of a fleet
Greensburg back who raced 50 yards to score.
The Blue and Gold threatened time after
time to score in the second half but the
Brown and White managed to hold them to a
NORNN'IN ...... NEW KENSINGTON
The Norwinites in their first "AA" game of
the season, bowed to a strong New Kensing-
ton team on the latter's field, 20-6. Norwin
played a much improved game and Ken Hi
had tough going throughout the entire four
quarters of the game.
NORWIN ...... PITCAIRN
Norwin's varsity, displaying a more power-
ful and more varied attack than in any other
contest of the season, swamped a bewildered
Pitcairn team. After the dust of the battle
had cleared, the local boys held the long end
of a 46-6 score.
NORXN'IN ...... MCKEESI'ORT
Armistice Day saw Norwin drop another
tilt to McKeesport High School. The lighter
Blue and Gold gridmen, unable to gain a
footing on the slippery turf, could not gain
against the strong' Tube City line. Aided
considerably by long runs, McKeesport raced
over 19 points to Norwin's O.

Scott Hi from North Braddock with a
Hashy and heavy grid machine handed Nor-
win another set-back on the home field, 19-O.
The Blue and Gold was unable to penetrate
the strong defense of the visitors. The Reed-
men, however, led by Gross, one of the
finest halfbacks to visit Norwin, rushed over

Jeannette High School, Norwin's oldest
rival trampled their way to a 21-0 victory
over a much lighter Norwin team. Norwin
usually plays its strongest game against the
Glass City eleven but on this Saturday our
footballers didn't come up to their standard
of previous years.

ing and thrilling defeat over Turtle Creek

The organized cheering, capably handled by
a squad of seven students, was an enthusiastic
aid to the football and basketball teams
throughout the seasons. Fred Neiman, '34,
was the head cheerleader. His assistants were
Robert Datz, '34, Bruce Boyle, '35, Catherine
Clohessy, '35, Betty Kuhn, '35, John Fehrs,
'36g and Bud Peters, '36,
These cheersters, effective, energetic, effer-
vescent, were hard-working and tireless in
their efforts to speed the fighting teams on to
victory. They were an inspiration to the stu-
dents at pep-meetings, on the football field,
or on the basketball floor, and always have
their efforts been appreciated and rewarded
with whole-hearted support.
The Junior football squad of 1933, the
seventh in the history of Norwin, made a fine
showing on both their own and their oppo-
nents' gridirons this season. The junior
squad is made up of varsity aspirants from
the two lower classes of Norwin and the
ninth grade of the Irwin junior High School.
This year the Juniors had a new coach,
Mr. Fischer, whose first year was successful,
his proteges winning four games and tying
one. This team has another achievement to
be proud of-their goal line was not crossed
These boys received valuable information
and drill on the fundamentals of football and
you may expect to see a lot of them on the
varsity next year. Two scheduled games, one
with Greensburg and one with Sewickley,
were postponed and remained unplayed be-
cause of adverse weather conditions.

For the second consecutive year, the Nor-
win varsity basketball squad emerged victor-
ious in the VVestmoreland county basketball
tournament, copping first honors in the Class
The Blue and Gold entry in the
annual tourney surprised all dopesters by their
dazzling play and scoring power against pow-
erful opposition. Entering the tournament as
the underdogs, the Norwinites defeated, by
decisive scores, three of the strongest teams
entered in the competition, Jeannette, Latrobe
and Monessen. The victory over Latrobe was
especially surprising, as the Section X cham-
pions had twice previously defeated Norwin
in league competition. The lllue and Gold
cagers defeated Monessen in the finals, 39-20.
Winning the VVestmoreland county cham-
pionship enabled Norwin to retain possession
of the circulating trophy for another year.

The 1933-34 Norwin basketeers got off to
a slow start, losing seven of their first eight
games, but the boys improved steadily and
finished the season with eighteen victories and
ten losses. In sectional competition, the Blue
and Gold displayed good form, winning seven
and dropping three games. Norwin lost twice
to Latrobe, sectional champions, and once to
Greensburg. They conquered Greensburg
once and Blairsville, Jeannette, and Derry
Township twice each. The members of the
squad were Rouldin, Zavora, Kerr, Johnston,
OlConnell, Thorne, Craycraft, Van llyke,

men. All of these except llouldin, Zavora,

The boys' intramural sports program was
greatly curtailed this year, and interclass foot-
ball, mushball, wrestling, and volleyball were
abandoned. Class basketball, however, was
renewed with even greater vim and vigor than
in other years. Besides the A and B class
league, an independent league composed of
underclassmen played off a complete schedule
of games and the winner met the class B
champs in a game to determine which team
should play the class A winners for the school
In the class A race the seniors finished the
race with a record of ten victories and no de-
feats. These games, however, were closely
contested, and the juniors and sophomores put
up stiff battles before falling before the
champs. The senior B team also finished its
schedule with a perfect record, and after de-
feating Purdue, champions of the independent
league, met the senior A team for the school
championship. The A team emerged on the
long end of a Z6--15 score and thus became
the possessors of handsome awards given to
each member of the team.
The members of the senior A champs were:
Guy, Highberger, Cowell, Fulton, Senior,
Herbster, Payne, and Kifer.
The B championship team members were:
Leaf, Kasparek, McGreevy, Crookston, Mc-
Allister, Kroon, Neiman, Stoker, E. Friclc,

This year, interclass sports proved to be
very popular with the fair lassies at Norwin.
The girls participated in basketball, volleyball,
archery, tennis, ping-pong, and last but not
Again, as usual, basketball, with Margaret
Sofaly as manager, has been the foremost
sport, and has enjoyed more attention this
season than ever before. The teams were
divided into two groups, Class A and Class TS.
The championship of the A tournament was
won by the Senior team composed of the fol-
lowing members: Charlotte Millen, Captain,
Betty Boch, Nancy Brown, Faye Carmack,
Margaret Collier, Harriet Cook, Martha Kerr,
Lola Larzelere, Anna Leathers, Eva Mae
Qualls, Florene VVatson, and Marion VVilson.
Following is the Enal rank of Class A:

The B tournament ended in a triple tie
among the Seniors, -luniors and Sophomores.
At the playoff, the Senior team consisting of
Alice Youngstead, Captain, Harriet Cook,
I.yda Hill, Martha Kerr, Doris Kite, Sara
Kunkle, Helen Miller, and Eva Mae Qualls
won first place.
Volleyball, which immediately followed bas-
ketball, was managed by Betty Muse, and was
another interclass sport which afforded much
pleasure and excitement. The girls played
better volleyball than ever before and there
was no little trouble in picking our best teams.
The championship of the tournament was won
by the Sophomore team. Following is the
final ranking of the tournament:

Hockey, one of the newest sports, but one
of the best, was accepted with much eager-
ness on the part of the girls. Inter-class
s - Q
l U T
games were held in the fall, during which
much skill and agility were displayed. This
interesting sport afforded much exercise, and
pleasure to all four classes, with the result
of producing some very skillful hockey play-
ers. So much enthusiasm was displayed that
the girls were even to be found on the field on
Archery has also played a prominent part
in girls' intramural sports. The arrows
whizzed through the air, hitting the target,
and very often the bull's eye. The girls turned
out to be very skillful archers, almost rivals
of Robin Hood himself, who, had he been
there, would have found himself up against
much competition. A "Columbia Round"
archery tournament under the management of
Nancy Brown, was held this spring, the re-
sults of which are not known at this date.
Tennis, a new but exciting sport, was played
in the fall. This sport was carried on by
means of an all-school elimination tourna-
ment. All girls, regardless of their training,
were eligible for participation. This sport
was accepted with much enthusiasm making
the contest a great success. The tournament
was won by Cornelia Hockensmith, with
Nancy Brown as runner-up.
Ping-pong, an exciting sport played in the
spring, was carried on by means of an elimi-
nation tournament, with Helen Drake as man-
ager. It was accepted by the girls with so
much enthusiasm that the contest was a great
success. Last year's tournament, held late in
the spring, was won by Charlotte Millen. This
yearys contestants will have to work doubly
hard to win over the present school champion.
The OHicial's Club, open to members of the
two upper classes, was very much in evidence
this year. The work consisted of refereeing,
umpiring, timing, and scoring, and seemed to
be enjoyed thoroughly by the girls. The
membership of the club was as follows: Betty
Boch, Nancy Brown, Faye Carmack, Mar-
garet Collier, Marie Curry, Helen Drake,
Lyda Hill, Florence Hurst, Louise Jamieson,
Sara Kunkle, Lola Larzelere, Anna Leathers,
Charlotte Millen, Alberta Mosso, Eva Mae
Qualls, Margaret Sofaly, Florene Watson,
Marion Wilson, and Alice Youngstead.
This year has proved to be a very success-
ful one in the world of sports at Norwin, due
to the hard work of the girls, and to the ex-
cellent training and coaching given to them by
our Physical Education Instructor, Miss Alls-
,Nlthough we all consider Norwin an indie
vidual school, on a much higher level than
any other we know, there is something that
she has in common with all other schools-
traditions. Many of her traditions have
come down to us since the establishment of
Xorwin in 1916, and some date farther back
than that, when our .Xlma Mater was the
lrwin lligh School. Une of these very old
traditions is the football teamg Norwin has
been represented on the gridiron for many
years and consequently her team is very
well known throughout Xvestern l'ennsyl-
vania. Although the basketball team has
not been in existence quite so long, it has
been a tradition for many years, and the
opening of its season is always looked for-
ward to with much eagerness.
ln musical lields, Norwin has always
been quite active. She has had an orches-
tra, which has been steadily improved and
enlarged each year. 'llhe Norwin band, and
the tiirls Lyric Club are also traditional.
The practice of giving a Christmas play
and also the .lunior Class play was discon-
tinued last year.
The publication of the Norwin school
paper was begun in 1919, The last issue of
the paper was always dedicated to the sen-
iors until 1920, when the first year-book
was publishedg it has been edited every
year since then.
'llhe program of the closing week of
school and the graduation exercises has ad-
hered to the same pattern since the early
days of Xorwin, 'llhis week, dedicated to
the Seniors, has always opened with llac-
calaureate Services on Sunday night, fol-
lowed by Class llay, Senior l'lay, the an-
nual l'rom for the Seniors given by the
hluniors, and then finally Commencement.
These traditions, which have come down
to us since the founding of the school, tend
to instill in us a respect and reverence for
our Alma Mater. 'llhey play an important
role in the history and development of the
school as well as in the minds and hearts of
its students, preserving an atmosphere of
respect for things gone before and eager
anticipation for events to come. This at-
mosphere is partner to that abstract idea
"school spirit". One cannot exist without
the other, nor can one come into being
without bringing the other with it. So tra-
ditions are as much a part of our school life
and activities as are books and tablets.
The game of games! On a bright, sun-
shiny afternoon in September 1931, the open-
ing whistle blew for the greatest football game
ever to be played at Norwin. After the kick-
off we entered the classrooms for some very
strenuous work. In a short time we found
that we needed to know who our officials
would be. Mr. Brurnbaugh, as our coach,
was ably assisted by Miss Lauffer, Miss
Schade, and Miss Wariiock as our class ad-
visors. The game started with our president,
Anthony Cook, as captain, our vice presi-
dent, George Sutton, as quarterback, and our
secretary, Elma Zanella, as head cheerleader.
Our team, as well as our cheering section,
was well represented in all fields of activity
and was very prominent on the Honor Roll.
Our Athletic teams suffered many defeats as
is usual in the Freshman Class. The whistle
blew to close the first quarter after many
friendships had been cemented.
At the beginning of the second quarter, or
Sophomore Year, we had a new group of
prominent players in George Sutton and
Richard Battiston, with Betty Kuhn acting as
head cheerleader. VVe made a better showing
President . .... . .. GEORGE KLINE
Vice President GEORGE SUTTON
Secretary . ... BETTY KUHN
in all activities this quarter. Friendships were
strengthened and the closing whistle brought
sorrow to many because of parting for a brief
span of three months, thus ending the first half
of the football game.
We welcomed the third quarter, Junior
Year, because it meant that we had been grad-
uated to the status of upperclassmen. In
this quarter we found our leaders to be George
Kline, the plunging fullback, who had shown
himself one of the team's mainstays, George
Sutton, quarterback, who has also been ex-
tremely successful in the music line, and Betty
Kuhn, still acting as head cheerleader. During
this quarter we selected an attractive class
ring. Although there were no other clubs in
which we could show our talent, we were well
represented in all the musical organizations.
This quarter closed with trials and tribulations
as to raising funds for the prom.
With our fourth quarter close at hand we
are looking forward to the prospects of a
snappy, yet dignified, Senior Class and we
trust when the final whistle blows that we
have won the greatest victory of our High

Tn the fall of '32 we too came to high
school. A new epoch in the history of N.
H. S. began the day we entered its portals.
Trenibling with fear and awe, we so-called
green Freshies began our struggle for know-
ledge. Our Freshman Class was divided in
'32 because some of us went to the Junior
High. The class officers there were Dale
Mathias, president and Christine Coles, sec-
Our leaders at Norwin were Scott Lauffer,
president, Elmer Erickson, vice president,
and Evelyn Frye, secretary.
VVe were scorned, perhaps, by upper-class:
men, but soon we too were to have our day.
VVe were destined to be a powerful influence
at Norwin and we set to work to make our
class record one of the best. Long, hard
battles were fought with algebra, history,
Latin, English and gym, but we were re-
warded for our valiant efforts.
Class parties and socials helped to lighten
our burden and brighten our outlook for the
future. We were well represented in athletics.
Many of the boys proved to be fine athletes
and a few, the makings of future stars. The
girls, too, were very much interested in sports
of basketball, volleyball, and hockey. Under
the able guidance of Miss Allshouse, they had
a splendid year. Feeling weary of study, we
decided to take a vacation and rest in prep-
eration for the next era of our stay at Nor-
In September, 1933, we again mounted the
steps and entered the Mansion of Knowledge.
This time we bore the title--Sophisticated
Sophomores. Now, we too, could look down
upon the Freshmen and laugh at their expres-
sions of anxiety. Our friends from the Jun-
ior High joined us once more. We chose to
lead us through our second year at Norwin,
Elmer Erickson as our president assisted by
Russell Steel, vice president and Betty Leh-
The task of fitting ourselves for the next
advance to success was certainly no easy mat-
ter. Qnce more we journeyed over the rug-
ged paths of study, perhaps sometimes falter-
ingly, but were not outshone in honors. Fre-
quently we had the largest number of stu-
dents on the honor roll. lVe distinguished
ourselves in athletics as well. Our basketball
and volleyball teams reaped the harvest of last
year's experience, the girls being defeated
only by the Seniors.
In all fields of activity we were well repre-
sented, both the Hand and Orchestra boasting
Sophs in their midst. For the first time the
sophomore class boasted of three members on
the bi-weekly staff, three on yearbook staff.
Also we were represented on the Champion
Varsity Basketball Team. Again we took time
off to attend the socials.
As our second year at Norwin draws to a
close, we look back upon it as one full of ad-
venture, fun, and hard work. We feel that
our struggles have not been in vain and that
we have had as profitable a term as any class
VVe know that we have made our first two
years at N.H.S. worth while in every possible
way, and deserve a brief rest.
VVe, the "Class of '36" anticipate a success-
ful Junior year and look forward to it with

"The First Semesteris the Hardest". On
September 5, we entered the protecting portals
of Norwin Union High School and sentenced
ourselves to one term of hard labor. It was
rather difficult going at first, but the Freshmen
triumphed over all. We soon adapted our-
selves to the routine of N.H.S. and began to
like it. At first we were head over heels in
work for thought we werej but not too busy
for other things. Oh no! We proceeded to
establish ourselves firmly in every organiza-
tion we could.
In athletic activities we weren't so good,
we shared the fate of other Freshmen by be-
ing defeated right and left by the more ex-
perienced upperclassmen. After settling our-
selves, we decided we needed a few officers
to pilot us through N. H. S., and for this pur-
pose we chose Jess Eyler, presidentg Eugene
Craycraft, vice-presidentg and Hazel George,
VVe'll admit we were slightly green at first
but that soon wore OH. We were a bit slow
in making the Honor Roll but we soon man-
aged to show the upperclassmen that we too,
could make it if we wanted to. Besides fill-
ing our heads with knowledge, we learned to
be loyal to dear old Norwin High School.
"Time Passes Quickly"--thus the end came
to our Freshman year and as we look back,
the whole term seems but a day. It is with
great regret we leave the protecting portals
of our to be alma mater although it is only
for a short time. We shall return next year
as Sophomores. Then just watch us go!
Salute! Our future in Norwin.

Iiarly one September morn nine years ago
the 1934 Ninth graders started on a voyage
with one ambition, to conquer Knowledge.
VVe traveled on through our first live years
with little trouble, but in our sixth year we
lost the ship we had all learned to love so
much. The ship was taken from us by fire
on the night of January twenty-nine. Tem-
porary shelter was found for us in the Meth-
odist Church until a new ship was completed.
Our new ship was a beautiful and modern
boat where provisions were made to take care
of us through nine years. VVe continued on
through the next two years, losing only a few
passengers along the way. At the beginning
of our ninth year we took on new passengers
f1'om North lrwin, Paintertown, and the Pa-
Wlith the crew so enlarged, we decided we
needed a captain, so on October twelfth we
elected as our leader, Matthew Kim with Sara
Cole, Lorraine Neiman, and Jack Parlitt as
aides. Later on, a social was planned to break
the monotony of the voyage. This party was
held with great success on the evening of Oc-
During the next month we enjoyed our an-
nual Christmas program. After all this hard
work, we were all looking forward to our two-
weeks vacation. Thoroughly rested, we start-
ed on our voyage again. At this time a bas-
ketball team vvas organized and entered in the
Westmorelaiirl County Junior High League.
The team was quite successful and won fifteen
games out of the twenty-two games played.
Chapel programs were given, and we were al-
lowed to participate in the publishing of the
bi-weekly paper of our sister crew. We sailed
smoothly on, and neared the end of another
lap in our voyage. We: dropped anchor near
the first of -Tune and left the ship looking for-
ward to the next lap of our journey where we
shall join the students of Norwin to continue

Message to Seniors
TO THE CLASS OF 1934:
As you join the ranks of Norwin alumni you reach higher ground from
which you can look back upon your school days. It is as though you have crossed
:1 valley and climbed the mountain top beyond. You look back with Z1 sense of
satisfaction upon the distance covered, and forward to higher peaks with courage
and a heart for new adventures.
I, too, am having the same experience. 1 ani graduating with you. l began
here with you twelve years ago and am leaving with you. This experience has
been an education for me, as it has been for you.
VVe go out together with new hope and at this commencement resolve to do
the best that is in us-onward, forward, upward.

The senior class of 1934 presents "Labor
Conquers All" a drama in four acts. Follow-
ing is a brief of the presentation
Labor Conquers All
Act l. 'fThe lfrosh"--As the Cl1l'1Z1l11 rises
on the first scene, a September 1930 setting is
seen with a chorus of two hundred singing the
overture. Vvilliam Senior, Fred Neiman, and
Helen l.ong played the leading roles. Many
members of the supporting cast took part i11
the scenes from the Girls Lyric Club, Hand.
Orchestra, Athletics, Dancing Choruses. and
other special side attractions. This Act prov-
ed a great success and aroused much anticipa-
tion for the second.
Act. ll. "The Sophs"-The second act was
laid in September a year latcrlthe main char-
acters were played by Francis Mcfireevy, NVil-
liam l.eaf, and lflelen Long, with a large sup-
porting cast again showing the side features
in their best light. The "Belle of llagdadv
made an interesting scene, and contributed
largely to the applause when the curtain was
Act 111. "juniorsl'fOnce again a change
in roles is made-this time reverting to those
of the first act-VVilliam Senior, Fred Nei-
man, and Helen Long. Another innovation
in the way of original scenes was made-a
depression party. There were others too-as

a Popular Musical and Novelty Concert-
little one-act plays within the large one-and
novel chapel scenes given by different groups
of the cast. The entire body at this time chose
an emblem--a gold ring set with a ruby stone.
A happy frolicsome event marked the close of
this actgthe junior Prom, a fitting finale as
the curtain rang down on the third act.
Act lV. 'last llut not l.east"fln Septem-
ber 1933, the final tabloid of this magnificent
drama got off to an inspiring start. The
humble participants of "The Froshn were now
the mighty leaders of the pageant, the talented
actors and actresses of this great scene!The
leading roles were taken by Charles Stoker,
Lloyd Lauffer, and Helen Long, greatly im-
pressing the entire cast with their ability and
diligence. Throughout the entire act all ef-
forts were expended towards making the final
scene-Graduation-a success-The Bacca-
laureate Address, Class Day Exercises, Senior
Play, Senior Promenade, and last and greatest
of all-Commencement--these were the stir-
ring events portrayed in the last moments of
our drama. The curtain dropped and the ac-
tors departed to go their way through the
Lands of Opportunity in search of Success
and NVorthy Achievement.

The class of '34 is leaving
Sad to state-but trueg
VVithout us, we can't imagine
XYhat the school will do!
Of course, we hate to leave it,
lVe know you all will pine,
But then, you must remember
That we've really served our time.
VVe've taken all its ghastly tests
And uttered not a sound.
lYe've felt real sorrow in our soul
XYhen report cards came around.
But somehow, we'd soon recover
Even though we'd fail,
But it still remains a wonder
How we lived to tell the tale.
The teachers just don't seem to know
lYhen enough's enough
They had no mercy-didnlt care
lf we were "in the rough".
But now welll leave them to their sport,
And Juniors,-never shirk!
just keep on grinding night and day
Till you die of overwork.
And maybe some day we'll come back,
As dignified professors,
And then we'1l wreak our vengeance on
Our ........... ..... . .... successors.
The class of nineteen thirty-four is
The day has come when we must
part and say adieu,
Now Juniors and Sophomores and
all you Freshmen too,
So join your hearts with our hearts
to praise our Alma Mater true,
The faculty has helped in making
W'e hope that we have brought
And since we'll not return next
year when you all do
VVe say farewell tolday-good luck

The publication of a school annual is impossible Without financial
aid from some outside source. This aid is usually received from the
business men of the Community in the form of advertisements in the
book. This year, as last, in order to get in line With present business
conditions and reduce the expense of each advertiser, and also to
include a greater number of business men, the advertisements have been
replaced by a BOOster's page.
To the following contributors who have made it possible to publish
this book, We extend our thanks and take this opportunity to show our
appreciation of their kind and generous Contributions.
