Text from Pages 1 - 112 of the 1916 volume:

Once more the end of the school year is approaching. and the "Fata" makes its second appearance. The year just past has been one of splendid progress in many ways for N. H. S., and we, the Editors, sincerely trust that the "lfata" may reilect some of this success. Let no one feel hurt by our friendly jokes: they are given in a spirit of pleasantry and good will and should so he taken. And so with fluttering hearts we submit to you the fruits of our labors. Such faults as it has we claim as ours: its virtues we dedicate to N. H. S. Your censure we receive as our humble dueg your slight measure of praise we hopefully await!

O the poet pictured the pretty brook, whose waters ever sparkled forth from a per-ennial fountain. And so We, the members of the class of 1916 must also go forth and join the stream which tue tormer graduates of our Alma Mater have helped, for many a year, to swell to ever increasing proportions. Not all the waters of the spring flow down the stream, but much is wasted by leakage and absorption of the fountain-head. So not all of the original class of 1916 as constituted four years ago, upon our en- trance in the dear halls of our High School, C311 now be counted among those who graduate. Then we were hfty in number, but in the course of four years we dwindled down to twenty-eight. And as streams of waters How not only from the fountain-head, but are augmented from many another source, so we, luckily, had our diminished numbers in- creased at the beginning of our last year's school term by seven favorite daughters and sous of our sister Borough Coplay, making us thirty-five strong, the largest class ever graduated from our High School. While all the wavelets in the bosom o-f the stream have their peculiar beauty and brightness, yet they all vary in strength and sparkling sheen, and some few notably so. And so the class of IQI6 has not one dull member or weakliug amongst its number. Yet here and there are some who already have shone in valor of brawn and mental agility, whose sparkling splendor wc take pride to display. There are Russell Kern and Foster VVeitknecht, who have won fame by writing sixty words a minute on the Underwood typewriter and have received credentials. Our six-footer. Leo Costello. has made himself the hero of our Basket Ball cage by his good work as center. Of meritorius mention is the work of Hobart Farber in the same athletic sport. Ruth Semmel and Leota Newhard are the great pianists and also did good work as guards on the Basket Ball team. , But lack of space forbids us to enumerate the many points of Worth which the members of our class have acquired under the faithful tutelage of our good teachers. 'We have faith in the members of 1916 and we are sure that their present worth, bright as it is, will become even more enhanced as years go on, even as the waters of a stream become deeper and more powerful as they dow along the course which Providence, ages ago, has determined. ESTHER Hoi-'1fM.xN VVEAVER, '16, -11- THE SENIOR CLASS O Class Motto-"Impossible is Unamericarf' Class Colors-Navy Blue and Old Gold Class Flo wer-S weetheart Rose O Oflfcers Hobart Amory Farber, President Emma Odenwclder Boyer, Secretary Earl Stanley Hawk, Treasurer HOBART AMORY FARBER "lf'Vz' know that zcfifh the Iaa'ie.v, Hrfs alwzlys 1'ai.v11iy Hades." Isn't he good-looking! The girls all answer this question with gasps of admiration, for there's no denying it. Hobie is some lady-fusser and is the school pet, even if he isn't the teacher's. He tried hard to shark it in Virgil, but really we think his pony must have gone lame or else he got one of a wrong pedigree. But never mind, Hobart, you really could play Basket Ball and we feel confident that you will succeed in your chosen profession. EM MA. ODENW ELD ER BOYER "May you rifm' be the same, Change 111 izoflzmg but your 7llllHl'.H We would not have wished "Piffy" to be other- wise, for she always was a sensible and jolly little girl. As to her name, we are sure she will have no trouble changing that. Emma never cared much about studying or going to school. but she always was very popular there. Her chief ambition is to take up domestic science and when we get hungry. we will know where to go. EARL STANLEY l-l AVVK "E1mclz"' "fl lzufvr of all ih-ings mzvfcmf, fl Imfer of all things umdm'n." Enoch was a quiet little boy, fmost alwaysl. lie loved to sit in the typewriting room with his desk close to someone and transcribe shorthand. l-le always did love to run an automobile and in summer time you could see hiun flying around the corners. Bul one day-Oh-poor Fido! NVe haven't seen Earl behind the wheel since. Earl is one of the stars that shines in the orchestra and some day we expect to see him holding an audience spell-bou-ml with his cornet. VVe know Earl will su-eceed, even if it is only to drive ll "Jitney". -13.- CAROLINE LAUBACH STEM nSll0l'f but .s'zur'e'!." "Sister" was one of the two "little ones" in our class. but she always liked very, very tall people. She was the only one in our class who could handle two suitors at the same time. This was probably due to the fact that she talked to the one by letter and to the other by tongue. But in spite of these distractions she was a good stu- dent. One thing which seemed strange to all of us was that she never attended the Basket Ball games until in her S-enior year, when she w'ouldn't miss a game. NVe suppose there was a reason! LEO JOSEPH COSTELLO "His merry glance E11fdlH1g!?l'S many ,14!?U7'f.Y.u VVhen you repeat this name, you may picture to yourself a "small, chunky boy". He is the pride of our Cla-ss, always cheerful and ready to spring a joke on someone. He always shows good judgment, especially when selecting a song, his favorite tune being, "Can't yo heah me call- ing, Caroline?" He is one of the "wonderful tive" who won many games in a creditable man- ner and always scores many points. Leo would like to be a "movie star" and we hope we will be able to see him on the screen in the near future. -14... GRACE IRENE KOCH ER A Iizfiug proof that "Great things come in .vnmrll pc1ckagvs."' Grace or "Chicken Little" as she is better known to us, is an extra small package, and therefore has an extra amount of all other things to make up for what she lacked in size. Grace was always the jollier, when the Seniors all got together for a good time. She was a great favor- ite among' the girls, hut more so among the boys. altho Grace never encouraged them. A, C. VV. seems to be her goal. VVe hope she makes and crowns it with a big success. JOSEPH HERMAN "Tut cz poet and did11'f know ff, Gmc me fl pun and' 171 try again." Behold our class poet! Joe was one of the smartest fellows we had in school. He handled almost two courses in f-our years, won a prize at contest and won several chemistry debates wixth Prof. Scheiaffer. Joe wants to become a chemist and we know he will make good, for in that peculiarly shaped head of his, there is some- thing to make alm-ost any Proffs hair stand up straight. His greatest fault was however, that Several times he became so enthusiastic that we he could not suppress the German spirit in him. thought he was going back to Germany to help the Kaiser Hght. ESTHER HOFFMAN VVEAVER "True Diligence is Alttfuys Rzfwardvd. Yes, 'true diligence is always rewarded, and we know it will be with Esther, for she always was a girl who studied hard and stuck to her work no matter what happened. Esther had only tw-0 faults which we could see, and they were inquisi- tiveness and bossiness. We think in this Esther excelled by far any one whom' we know. But these are only -two faults and Esther had so many good points that we can't pass the-m by vrilhout mentioning them. There was shorthand -she was easily our Star. And could she sing? XVhy she was one of the Seniors, representatives in the Glee Club, and we know it was Esther who made the walls ring. Last but not least- out of the whole Senior Class she was selected to do otlice work, which no one else was thought capable of doing. NrVe imagine Esther will be the tirst one in the class to capture a position, and we can picture her leading her boss around by the nose. I-IIRAM TI-IGMAS KUNTZ "BVU-nders shall :miter rmisvf' "Koonie" in spite of his nickname is as white as you or l and is also one of the Big Three- lfrey, Costello and Kuutz. I-le was always a good sport and was well liked among his classmates, but occasionally got in "hot water" with the faculty. lu his liberal Ways he was always wi.ll- iug to help along any good cause and especially the chewing gum cause. In all social attairs he worked hard and fostered our present unity and class spirit, which owe much to his untiresome efforts. This vacation Hiram intends to run a movie house in XlV3Sl'llI'1gtOI1. D. C. VVe hope he doesn't get stuck on some movie Queen, because he intends to enter college in fall. May he have the hest of Luck. -1 G- MABIIL PAULINE ROYER "A Winning Smile Always C011quf'r.r." Pauline was always a good sport when it came to doing anything for N. H. S. and eislnecially for her own class. She really was one of the very fe-w with a lot of class spirit. But she was also go-od at other things. She spoke al the Oratorical Contest and captured the lirst prize. She was a member of the Girls' Glee Club and was great admirer of haslcet-hall and a certain star. She believed in treating the lower class-mates a little better than her own. Try to picture Pauline in an up-to-date school room, administering knowledge in small doses to the children. Don't give up. Pauline, we are sure you will succeed. JOHN PATRICK DREISBACI-I "Sile11rc ix Gnldezf' lf silence is golden, John surely has enough gold stored up to hll a house. Perhaps we had better say knowledge, because while the rest of the class chatlered and giggled, john paid atten- tion to what was going on and was the wiser for it, we are sure. He had a little trouble with the girls however, for his mannerly conduct won the favor of all of them. John expects to become a mechanical engineer and we are sure that he will make good. -17- RUTH ELLEN SEM MEL "C0mpeI me not to toe the mark, Bc fwfr pri-nz and Iruc, But ruflzur let me do flze things That I ought fmt to do."' This little rhyme will tell you much about S6'Il1l'I1SliS actions in school, which make her the despair of the teachers. But in spite of that she certainly can play the piano, her favorite tune being "I wonder what 'case' I can break up next." Besides playing the piano, playing Basket Ball and being a. good student, Ruth keeps up a steady correspondence with "Him", of whom we have heard so much. NVe know that if she can put the afore-mentioned "Him" out of her thoughts, she will succeed with her music. FOSTER REICHARD VVEITKN ECI-IT A wise old owl sa! in 011 oak, The more he heard the less he spoke, The less hc' spoke 1110 more he heard, Iflflzy lH'E1L,f we like that wise old bird? Foster came to join our ranks from that pros- perous and very lively city of Laurys, and never he nor we have been sorry that he took such Zl bold step. His purpose in so doing was to be improved and we certainly have made a big suc- cess of it. Foster at one time was very bashful, quiet and afraid of the girls and consequently stuttered, but under the good training received from his classmates, he has overcome all these difficulties, much to the delight of some people. -13- GLADYS SARA MILI-IAM Ul"Vlll1f'A' in a Ntm1e?" Hold your hats, here comes 'fWindy Mil--ham". She seems well contented with the prefix "Mil" of her surname and never intends to part with it. Gladys can talk and talk and then talk some more and when you think she is linishcd she can even talk some more, She is all that can be se- cured in the Edison, Columbia and Victor talking machines combined and possesses an inexhaust- ible supply of ten cent records. Taking is by no means a fault of her's, al- though some of the teachers consider it thus, but it is in reality a remarkable talent. She was con- sidered one of the best elocuticnists of the High School and always made a favorable impression as such. Then she di.d not use her ten-cent records but used the three and four dollar type. lt is very evident that she will be a teacher of elocution and we should be happy to have our children receive her excellent training, SAMUEL DAVID FARBER "For den tho' tlanquislietl, he could argue still." Samuel David Farber Cfor old times sake, Sammyj was fortunate to have biblical names galore-Samuel David. Get that? Some religious boy. Nevertheless religion and its representatives have done a great deal for the young man. Although he has a very heatlhy appearance, nature never intended him to be an athlete. But we must say, he is a great athletic fan and had actually made a gruesome effort to be a ball player. It is a ball game in itself to see "Lefty" Farber "pitch his head off" trying to make the Varsity. He seems to 'tossess some undeveloped ability in his left arm and we unanimously ad- vise him to practice slinging the dish rag to get into trim. Yet Samuel has his triumphant sphere, which is his intellectual and oratorical ability. He showed remarkable ability by capturing second prize at the Oratorical Contest. VVe either ex- pect him to become a sales agen-t or a great statesman. Best Luck, Samuel David. -l 9- EDITH MAE NEWHARD "Tis 'ZUOIlllIl1'J clmrms, that lull our mrcs to rest, Dear 'ZE'0IIItlIl .9 l'l'llll'7lI.YJ that g-we to life, 1l.r:v.rl." Edith more often called "Toddy" -on account of her size, has the art of being able to play inno- cence. She can turn a trick without detection from her facial delineation. Edith believes in be- ing kind to under class men te-specially a Jr.D In her freshman year her ambition was to go to college, but she has recently decided to become a nurse. She is working hard to carry 'out this ambition and expects to enter the hospital as soon as she leaves N. H. S. We are sure she will succeed, as she is making a good effort and so has made :1 line beginning. Best Luck is our wish to you Edith. H OVVAR D FREY DANKEI. "For Satan find: some misrlzicf still for idle ll-ands to d0."' Did Howard Frey Dankel? I don't know whether hc did, but he seems well done and in reality over-done. Although his surname is Dan- kel, yet we rather call him "Tangle", for he is tangled in most everything from a girl to his own curly hair. Howard usually bears a smile from ear to ear that seems very attractive to the ladies and has allowed him to go to Coplay to shoot B. B's. Although he has always been a night owl, yet in 'school he showed some undeveloped abilities. He- took a great liking to shorthand, probably due to the fact that his long hand did not suit him. No doubt with his strong will and good head he might bump into a wall of success. -20- ELSIE ANNA STETTLER "Bz'Hf'r lute them 11vi'cr." Although Elsie lives in lower Northampton, the Lipper part of the city seems Lo have more attracf tions for her. She is frequently seen walking up and down Main street falone?J Elsie is fond of athletics and plays center on the second team of our basket-ball squad. Tennis also has attractions for her. Anyone calling on Elsie, who brings chocolate candy or ice cream is sure -to work him- self into her good graces. LANVRENCE CLATDEN SHOEMAKER "What have we llervf A uma?" Although Lawrence is a boy, we are sometimes inclined to think ditterenitly, as his pink and white complexion is rather misleading. Lawrence tried his luck at Basket Ball, but failed, altho he did make the baseball team. He- was constantly seek- ing the attention of the ladies. although for all his trouble, he was not very successful, except when it came to using his pocket knife: then he was in great demand. l1Ve feel sure he will suc- eeecl as an engine-er if he can stop thinking about his complexion and girls long enough. -21- LILLIAN ELIZABETH BERNHARDT nsfeemln "Who :hall if bc'?"' Lillian is another of the happy-go-lucky class. She travels with "Todcly" Newhard and bo-th are alike in two things. She, too, believes in being kind to under class men.C?l She is another of our singers and is a member of Glee Club and sings in the Senior Sextette. She likes to sleep and for this reason was called "Sleepy". But we must admit she is wide awake when the fun is hanclyf?J Lillian also wishes to become a nurse. VVe think she will make a good one if a jolly disposition and rosy cheeks help in any way. Suocess to you, Lillian. HAROLD CLAUDE XVOLFE "Rather Small, but Good-Nat-m'ea'." Harold was :mother one of the boys who came from Kreidersville to develop his brain, and he succeeded fairly well, too. But there was one of his accomplishments which far excelled his studies-and that was his marvelous bicycle rid- ing. VVe even used to see him entertaining the "kiddies" after school, by giving them rides home. Harold also found exquisite delight in lending some girls quarters to get sundaes. The girls say they wouldn't have tasted half so good if Harold hadn't lent them the money. VVe think Harold wants to be a speed-king, because his greatest delight now is t-o push his dad's "Im- perial", We know he will succeed. .-.'D'J.- FANNIIE HORTENSE HORN "Al: 111.v.'-lmzcf weak ll thing the lzmrl of woman is." Fannie is one of our number who comes from Coplay. She is very quiet and love-S to have things quiet around her. fSOl1lClIlI'l16Sl She used to like the Junior Class pretty well, but thnt's all oli, thank goodness! Fannie hopes to become a school teacher in good old Coplay. Well, we hope you will succeed, Fannie. CLIFFORD PAUL MILLER "I-Ve klmcu Ihut wiilz 11112 ladies H1"s alzculyx l'!l'lS1lIg Hades." Clifford is also one of the stars of our class. He is one of the best cartooniists we have record of, and he supplied many Seniors with cover de'- signs for Patron's Day. I-Ie has lately shown a decided taste for Coplay and when he goes there, he always get-s a square deal 1DiehlD. Several years ago Clilf was fond of harboring, but he has decided that the occupation does not pay and has therefore given it up. Cliff is quite a Tennis shark, although he takes revenge out of the game, if he happens not to he overly fond of his op- ponent. -231 LILLIAN RUTH REIL "Il's the .rongs yr sing and the smiles ye wear, Thats making the .vmmlzizw wc1'yzc'he1'e." Lillian was what you might term a "j0llier", always 'talking and laughing until the blues had to take wings. She could sing very well a-nd we hope she will make good with her voice. She intends to teach I1 kindergarten. Vile pity her pupils however, because she always had st "Will" of her own. ARTHUR JAMES HAI-iN 'iBll.S'l'lfllI7l!".S'5 11c'z'r'r imlkcs zz Man." Well, then Arthur will never make a man. Arthur belongs to the group of bicycle riders and was often seen with his shir-t sleeves rolled up to his elbow-s, Fixing some break clown or flat tire, but he always Fixed it some way or the other. Arthur does not seem t-o like shorthand very much, and we are sure that he will follow in his father's foot-steps. At that rate Arthur will be eating "Doggies" all his life. Arthur wants to be a machinistt for a little while before he enters the slaughtering business and we feel certain be- fore he has completed his carreer he will have invented some sort of device for automatic butchering, Behold, lXlorthampton's future butcher. I 7 RUTH HARTZ GANGWER "GiggIc and ilu' world giggles with you." Gangway, here comes Miss Gangwer. Her "cloudy" expression hails from VVeatherly and the simultaneous giggle probably from the nitrous oxide flilllglllllg gasj found in the coal mines. Although she seldom has this cloudy expression, nevertheless we would rather see her with it than without, for when she giggles the only way to stop her is "to scare her to death" or tell her something that will make her crossg the former method has often been used to some avail. yet the latter has proven itself the better remedy. Whenever there is a noise in High School she is in the vicinity-looking innocent. In the lab. she seems very fond of accidentally pouring away prepared solutions and acids to show her house-- keeping ability in washing glass ware. Her aiml- hition is to join the Grand Army of Teachers. Can you imagine her telling her pupils how good she was when she was a dear little School girl? The best of luck be her's. HAROLD AMOS FREY - . uv a "Cupid "As long as his :mmf is .Y1l0I't.n Well! lfVe1l! Here we are, the matchmaker of the class. Harold tried to play basket-ball, but did not succeed very well because his feet were always getting in his way. We thought that if Harold kept on going to school for about tive years. they would at last 'turn out a sport, but we all had 'something of a shock when we went f-or a sleighing party. "Cupid" is quite a good Commercial student and some day we hope to see him sitting at a schoolmas'ter's desk. COnly watch your feet. Haroldj -25- A f l ,t Y. 1 se V i t t ,Q ft ph ' A , fl Y ' 'i l 'QQ Q sgf, z ,v 7-it ui: FL' - LEOTA GRACE NEVVHARD I 'fPuIrc-ns and fellow CIt!.N'.S'lIltIfI'.Y, I am to disclose tt'o11dc'r.r." One of the wonders of our school is Leo-ta. She was brought up in Northampton and this probably accounts for her good health and spirits. She belonged to our Basket-ball Team, which is in itself a praise of her merit, and although she did not score any goals in this game, she was successful in scoring in some other games. The Orchestra also has always valued her services as one of the pianoists. Leota is inclined to take things :ts they come and has a cheerful outlook on life and therefore will succeed. RUSSELL VVOLFE KERN "Tlzf'1'e is tt gift bryorzd tht' rettfh of arf,-- ' of being eloquently .riIc'nt." Russell belongs to the "Country Club", that is, this lad hails from Kreidersville. He is noted among us for several things. First as a musician, he surely can make a piano give for-th harmoni- ous melodies. Probably this fact is the cause for his superiority over all his classmates land for- mer N. H. S. graduatesj i.n typewriting, which is his second noted specialty. He has attained the speed record of 74 words a minute. But with these characteristics, Russell has been somewhat shy and rather quiet. However his shyness seems to be disintegrating towards the end of the course. Russell thinks his destiny is to be a stenographer. Our best wishes for success. -25 - ELLEN CHRISTINE HESS "And llzen she would talk, O11 my, how .thc would tallef' Ellen always held true to her motto. She was stndious enough, but -somehow always had a little difficulty with German. One day in translating she "brought a surprise home" instead of "bring- ing a bride l1on1e." She was very fond of carry- ing on a conversation with Howard and, to his great sorrow, he had his seat changed. We never quite knew who it was Ellen was saving her kisses EH, but some day she'll surprise us. Success en. CLARA LOUISE HOAGLAND "She looks quiet, but oth llljllii Clara always was a quiet little girl taking things as they came. Aft speaking she was great, having won a prize at our oratorical contest. But "when boys and du-ty clash, then let duty go to smash." was her motto. Neither teachers or school mates could persuade her to study after she had once set her mind upon certain attrac- tions no-t in her High School course. You should have behaved better "Clarissa". -2 7- RUTH VIOLA SCHEAFFER "Are there any more at home like you?" "Tootsie" was a quiet little girl when she first arrived at N. H. S. with the Coplay 'fbunch", but af-ter she got acquainted, her tirnidness wore off and she would talk and giggle until we we-re com- pelled to ask her to stop. Ruth took a great fancy to the Juniors, it seems and one of her favorite expressions while in their company was "Oh I. A. H!" She expects to go to Kutztown and we hope she can teach the Golden Rule to the Kid- dies better than she herself ever pretended to un- derstand it. EILEEN LOIS KRAMER "Good lwlo-ws the wind that profits ctferybrvdyf' Thus it was, that Z1 good wind blew Eileen across the Lehigh river to our school. We are glad to have her among our number. Her cheery smile is ever welcome. Her rosy cheeks serve as an attraction for many under class mates, es- pecially Iuniors. Eileen isa good student, al- ways willing to lend a helping hand. Lately she has become interested in Tennis and is rapidly progressing in the ga-me. XVhen she plays the score is "Love', for a long time. W'e wonder why? But nevertheless, we wish Eileen a happy and successful future. ESTHER FOGELMAN NAUSE "Music hath chm'm.r."' To Esther has been given the gift of song. She is our best contralto. The rich quality of her tones have made her precious in our Girls' Gle-e Club and Senior Sextettes. Esther may be classed wi-th the "happy-go-lucky" kind, is usually in for fun and her hearty laugh is heard frequently. She comes from the upper end of town but there must be some attraction in the Third VV'ard, since Esther is seen frequently in or near that locality. Although she has taken the Commercial Course we hope she will develop her vocal talent and base her future upon it. Good luck to you Esther. CECELIA AGATHA DURNIN "To be quiet and good is to br- lmpfvyf' Cecelia is one of the four Coplay girls who joined our number this last term to take a post- graduate course after graduating from Coplay High School. She is ve-ry quiet, somewhat shy, usually alone and studies Zl great deal. Cecelia looks rather cross at times bu-t still "looks are deceiving", and she is a good little class mate just the same. She expects to become a nurse, and ultho she looks frail and slendor, we hope she will succeed. SENIOR CLASS SONG--1916 TfV01'ds by foe Herman. Music by Ruth Semmel. Wie are the Seniors of N. H. S. Of the class of nineteen sixteen, Our talents they say would win success, VVere't not for the nonsense mixed in, But in spite of our reputation Our sentiments are up-to-date And if you doubt our education, .lust think what we did in debate. lVe're very proud of our speakers bold, ' VVho for us our cause defended, So nobly did they our claims uphold ' That our rights were always granted, And now that the task is completed' j Wfe have nothing more to fear. " " And forgetting' who was defeated Well give the defenders a cheer. Chorus Then while our colors proudly glow Cver us so, over us so, Gaily a-singing we will go, Merrily oh, merrily oh. O TIIIIG-Tleflllfp, TKAMP, TRAMP. In a room the Juniors sit, Feeling sad and very blue, For they'd rather be a hundred miles away, And the tears they hll their eyes 'Spite of all that they can do, 'Though they try to cheer each other and be gay On the stage we firmly stood Wlhen their boldest charge they made And they could not make us tremble by their roar, But before they reached their seats They were looking back dismayed And we gave the cry of vict'ry o'er and o'er. Chorus Tramp, tramp, tramp, the Seniors march right on, O cheer up junior here we come And beneath the starry sky We will show you once again I-low a Senior beats a Junior in debate. -30- 'I916 CLASS PROPHECY O ALF after four, and I was experimenting on Nitrous Oxide flaughing gasj in the N. I-I. S. chemical laboratory, when, Bang! something exploded. I heard pieces of broken glass falling to the floor and simultaneous- ly a vapor overcame me. Finally I saw no more of the Lab, everything becoming dark. In my stupor I directed my footsteps to a large temple, which I recognized from my study of mythology as the Delphian temple. Though I entered cautiously, I was met by a god who required of me the errand upon which I had come. Seeking to find favor, I did ohei- sance and spoke of 1ny connection with the Class of 1916, N. II. S.. and was given the choice of hearing revealed the past or the future of the members. Satisfied that I knew enough and more of the fame of our class- mates, I earnestly entreated the god of the temple to delineate their futures. Knowing that he had a difficult task before him on account of the large class, the "Spirit of Delphi" busied himself at once and conjured a tree with thirteen boughs, on the last of which were thirty-five branches and twigs with as many candles. I rightly surmised that this tree repre- sented the N. H. S. and each branch the successive classes. The upper- most, most thickly set, of course, related to the Class of 1916. The spirit moved and Lillian Ruth Heil was named as the first sub- ject of his divination. Upon the mention of her name, one of the tapers suddenly lit up and fiickered in the darkness. This brunette has a bril- liant future awaiting her. As a vocalist she will become pre-eminent and linked with her natural tendency to instruct, she will become the worthy successor of the line of eminent supervisors of music in the N. I-I. S. A trio of lights now appeared, and it became apparent that as many members of the class would follow the same life vocation, and I could hardly await the mention of their names. This spirit of unrest was no- ticed by the god who made haste in naming Lillian Elizabeth Bernhardt, Edith Mae Newhard, and Cecelia Agatha Durnin. Surprise was added when nursing was named as the life work of these three classmates. Cecelia certainly will become the supervisor in one of the larger institu- -31- tions. Lillian and Edith, more vivacious, upon returning from the European war after serving with the Red Cross nurses, will take their turns as day and night nurses in the "Sunshine Hospital of Northampa ton", which will be founded by the multi-millionaires of the Class of 1916. The new illumination was meant for Emma Odenwelder Boyer, whose early inclination for domestic science fcandy making especiallyj will develop until she will be recognized as leading confectionaire in the country and will occupy the position as head of the Domestic Science department in the Northampton Domestic Science School. The next candle, larger than the others. represented Leo Joseph Costello. Instead of developing the natural tendency of becoming a mechanical engineer, he will become a metallurgist and has fond hopes of evolving a method by which gold and other precious metals could be located thru surface treatment. There is an old Indian tradition that a large casket of silver was hidden in the Lehigh mountains between Treichlers and Northampton, which will become the immediate Field of his practical experiments. VVhether the legend had a false basis or whether the old Hint lock which he will bring to the surface after his directions will be carried out, was the only thing deposited in the Lehigh Mountains will never become known. A wee Hickering light, just bright enough to make a ruddy glow, attracted my attention and Howard Frey Dankel was depicted as an aviator. a vocation which he assumed by force of circumstances. His change of residence shortly before graduation made rapid transportation from VValnutport to the N. H. S. essential. Steam, trolley cars. auto- mobiles and motorcycles were discarded as too tedious and fiying machines became his hobby. He will devise a mechanism that will be accepted as the standard air craft. The candle that met my view next was meant for john Patrick Dreisbach, who won fame in the devising of a storage battery of vest pocket size that runs everything from a table salt shaker to a mammoth stone crusher. This was a problem tggaiviiich Edison had devoted his life, but was foiled by the seeming impossibility of the task. Dreisbaclfs ingenuity will make him world famous. A brilliant light next dazzled my eyes and the rattle of vials and the scent of medicine brought out the fact that the Hobart Amory Farber would become his fathe1"s successor and would enjoy a large and suc- cessful practise in medicine and surgery and would become noted as a lecturer and consulting physician. That the god was possessed with the spirit of the times, the Shakes- pearean Anniversary was settled in my mind when I was informed that the scintillating taper was meant for Samuel David Farber, whose early impersonation of Shakespearean characters goaded him on to a more critical study. Samuel will be engaged 365 days each year on the plat- form depicting great characters. A light now darted before my vision and the presence of l'Cupid" was felt. Harold Amos Frey, who came by that appellation in a manner unknown to him or anybody else, stood forth as that character. In his hand was a copy of the Leap Year Edition of the fascinating book, "How to Catch a Man", for which he will accept the general agency. A candle with the longest tongue of flame shot out from a taper and this character, Ruth Hartz Crangwer, vies with Charlie Chaplin, who makes people laugh by his awkward mannerisms in the movie world. But our illustrious classmate will provoke laughter by laughing. There seemed to be an unnecessary pause before the next light ap- peared and behold there were two of them-Arthur -lames Hahn and Harold Claude lVolfe possessed like characteristics and the thought was expressed to me that they were not without some place in the fast mov- ing world of commercial development. Harold will some day be owner of the largest automobile works in America, and Arthur will become his reliable assistant. The dazzling light upon which l next gazed. depicted Earl Stanley Hawk. The diverging lines of Lincoln Avenue at 21st Street, were al- ways considered an insolvable engineering problem, but the master mind of Earl Hawk, applying himself to the task, brought the solution and Lincoln Boulevard, as it will be called, will be a monument to his fame. QEarl's thots will often go back to the tragedy of poor Fido, and how it might have been prevented had the street been as wide then as it is to be.J . The upward leap of the Hame which n-ow appeared was representa- tive of Joseph Herman's intiiitiqzii powers. No one is surprised that Joe should become a scientist of world renown. That was what was pre- dicted of him and his determined eHort to invent perpetual motion, a problem to which he has devoted his time and energy, is expected at least to revolutionize power. His earlier patriotic fervor will change trend and he will be commended for his advocacy of things American. A career as practical stenographer was indicated by the light of the next candle. Ellen Christene Hess, true to her training in N. H. S.. will assume a position in john XlVZl.l'l3.11'lZlliEI"S Paris store, but having shown her ability in a few years she will become the better half in a happy home in Northampton, a place she was loathe to leave. A carefully shaded light was next seen, and the life work of Clara Louise Hoagland was given as that of a hair dresser. New departure in coiffure, conceptions of a recognized leader will give this quiet student prominence that will bring her into frequent consultaton with the many social lights of the renowned class of IQI6. A cluster of three lights, burning steadily and brightly, tells the future of these three girls, Fannie Hortense Horn, Eileen Lois Kramer and Ruth Viola Schaffer, who topped the Class of iI5 in Coplay High School and took a Ph.D. with the Class of 1916, H. S. Always to- gether, sharing joys and sorrows of school life. no thought could be given to separate careers. With one accord they will matriculate in K. S. N. S., pursue the course with full determination to follow Eileen's proposal of "Let's have a boarding school". To hnd a place where they could be together, stay together and work together, could only be solved by opening an institution of their own, which will be known as "Junior Seminary", at Coplay. Here cooperation will be effective under joint supervision. Eileen of course will be found at the head of the depart- ment of Mathematics: Fannie, of the department of Science. including Domestic Science: and Ruth of the department of Languages. The rh-ythmic flickering of a light did not surprise me that it was meant to inform me about a famous musician. The Paderewski of the class will develop in Russell Wolfe Kern, whose student days were spent in solitude at the type machine, with the th-ought ever present that he wanted as well to excel in piano key manipulation. The next candle was smaller than any of the others and it was de- picted that Grace Irene Kocher had a double future. The development of her vocal expression which was always a hobby with her, will bring her into the position of instructor in elocution in the Northampton Nor- mal School. She will keep close to her work till the rattle of dishes lures her from the school room into a pleasant home, to which she will be devoted. Topped only by a light that was noticed before, this next one indi- cated a tall personage. Hiram Thomas Kuntz, who early in life showed an inclination to compound medicines for dumb animals will attain his ambition and his remedies will be of acknowledged superiority. As a veterinarian he will establish a large practice at the National Capital. The footlights were suggested in a taper which directed my atten- tion to Gladys Sara Milham. Her- natural expression and vivacity will enable her to develop into the leading elocutionist in the Eastern States. Her impersonations and character studies recognized during her student days, will win the admiration of all and will be the incentives to closer application of the development of her natural talent. A most peculiar light flashed, portraying character lines, and fore- told of Clifford Paul Miller's talent for caricature. Pen and pencil drawing during his school days were the start of his career and he will be known as Amcrica's best cartooner. He will advertise extensively and his own physiognomy will be recognized in the sketch which will be the center of his ads. "Schumann-Heink equalled", was the expression of the god as he introduced the next light. As a vocalist Esther Fogelman Nause will have a brilliant career and tl1e appellation of "Shumann-Heink of Ameri- ca" will be only too well deserved. She will surely bring distinction to the illustrious Class of 1916. A light accompanied by thrills introduced Leota Grace Newhard, whose training has been in the direction of assuming the position as su- pervisor of music in the public schools. She will be successful in her vocation and will discharge the responsible duties of that position in the metropolis of the cement regions. Illuminated in its respective place was a candle that told of Ruth Ellen Semmel, whom no one could consider anything but an instrumen- talist of note and fame. Sh-e will graduate with high honors from the best conservatory in the country and will step into a high position until she will take charge of the musical department in Semmel's Emporium. The next light portrayed the future of Lawrence Claiden Shoe- maker. l-le will discover that electrical energy is the cause of gravita- tion, a problem which will be unsolved until this master mind makes the announcement. Professor Shoemaker will become the collaborator of the most eminent electrical scientists of the world. "If it pleases your honor ?" were the words repeated by tl1e god in fore-telling of the chosen life work of Caroline Laubach Stem. The law appealed to her and she will pursue a course in the law department of one of the larger institutions. Her hrst case will be the final argu- ment in the now famous "Fido" case which will be tried and retried from the graduation year of the class of IQI6. She will appear for the -35- defendant and is expected to win the case and absolve her classmate from the taint of inhumanity. A highly scented light was the means of introducing Elsie Anna Stettler, who started in a business career as a dispenser of perfume. She will be classed as a teacher of more than ordinary rank in the local Schools after completing a course in K. S. N. S. The delights of the tennis court fascinated Esther Hoffman 'Weaver, according to the prophecy over the next light and keeping up with the brilliant work, begun during her student days, will bring her to be the champion woman tennis player in America. Wlhen tennis is out of sea- son, rapid taps of the typewriter will engage Esther's attention. The rapid shooting forth of the tlame from the next to the last candle indicated speed, and Foster Reichard lfVeitknecht. It was told that he will become the auto speed king of two continents. His training will be done on the speedway that encircles Laury's, Kreidersville and Northampton. Then the last candle lit up and I heard my name, Mabel Pauline Royer, repeated several times. I became intensely interested. l be- lieved the god was about to depict a rosy future, when l recognized the voice of .lanitor Smith, who found me in a stupor on the floor of tl1e Chemical Lab. Thus tl1e prophecy of the Class of 1916 came to an abrupt end. Wfhether the oracle of the Delphian temple in its divination of the life work of the Class of '16 will be realized the years to come will stand as witness. So be it! -M. Puzllilzc R0-wr, '16. O Our Freshman year in High School we were timid, young and shy, And we studied very earnestly to make our average high. The next two years were happy ones, and very busy too, Xllith all our fun we never shirked the work that was to do. And now that we are Seniors and our school days almost o'er, We hope to tread successfully the path which lies before. Our courses were not easy, we had no time to fool, Now we're proud to have the largest class in the history of the school. -E. H. IV., '16. -36- JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY OF THE JUNIOR CLASS O N the year IQI3 thirty-seven proud freshmen filed into the beau- tiful auditorium of the Northampton High School. ln each heart beat high the hope of success. As the year drew to a close they had bound themselves together like the links of a chain. Since that time we have added and detracted from that chain and to-day there still remain twenty-seven links. Although we are as yet no links of gold, when our four years course in N. H. S. draws to a close we hope to shine much brighter than gold. VVe, as a student body of the class of 1917, have acquired great ability and have shown it in our knowledge of English, French, German and Latin: besides that, our commercial students surpass every other class in their mathematical ability. Let us now enumerate to you a part of the success which the junior class has attained. VVe have formed a Dramatic Club, whose purpose is to give an entertainment at the end of each year, and also to see to the dialogues which are given at our literary societies. At the head of this Dramatic Club is M-arie Erschen. Next is our famous orchestra and junior sextet. Lewis Meixler, our accomplished Celloist, "Jakey" Schadler the cornetist, and "Buff" Bartholomew, "Artichoke,' VVolfe and "Shrimp, Young, our violinists, when practising are enough to draw the heating system from its foundation. And the sextet is known as the best "howlers" that the faculty ever came across. We dare by no means forget our Basket Ball players, who are Olive Kuntz, Hattie Becker, Hannah Dilliard and Johnny Prye. Clive Kuntz being our long distance thrower, while Hattie Becker has become famous by poking the ball th-rough the basket at a three-foot distance. Every- body but the Seniors acknowledges that our class has the best players in the High School. To go further we have Joe Bittner, our champion tennis player, who has broken about ten rackets and used up most of his energy in Firing tennis balls into the Lehigh river. And still we must not forget our speed artists, VVilburt Danner's sixty and Olive Kuntz's forty words a minute breaking the record. These are only a few of our accomplishments and we hope to keep the faculty busier next year than we have kept them the first three years. "They can never tell by the sparks we throwf' Success, we the class of 1917 are fast approaching. HANNA1-1 EDNA DILI.I.XRDl, '17.

Cliioysj MORE CLASS PHO ' SO SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY O One bright summer morning in September IQI4. a large body of Freshmen entered the Northampton High School. This number dwindled down to thirty-four in the first two years of our course. But today the thirty-four are putting forth their best efforts to make their High School course worth while. "I do not know, nor will I vainly question, Those pages of the Mystic book which I hold, The story still untold. But without rash conjecture or suggestion, To win its last leaves in reverence and good speech, Until 'th-e End' I reach". As Freshmen and Sophomores we have succeeded in gaining quite a reputation i11 Literary Society, both in reciting and conducting it. In the last election of the 191 5-1916 term we have succeeded in having all th-e offices of the Society controlled by members of our class. The re- sults of the election were: President, George Schissler: Vice President, Eugene Stubbsg Secretary, Elsie Newhardg Treasurer. Floyd E. Geary. Our class is well represented in Athletics, containing some of the best athletes in the school. "Cap" Schissler, Geary and Stubbs strength- ening the boys' basket-ball and base-ball teams. Miss Hawk, Miss New- hard, Miss Schaeffer and Miss Stroh have proved themselves satisfac- tory in the girls' basket-ball teams. "Cap" Schissler proved himself supreme in the IQI5 Field Day Marathon by winning the Two and a half Dollar Gold piece. The Sophomore class with its two years more in High School, wishes to accomplish many more important achievements so as to make the class of 1918 a class to be long remembered in the "History" of the Northampton High School. 0 FOR PARENTS ONLY Remember while reading our reports that: E may stand for excellent.

XV hen we entered the magnihcent High School building in IQI5 we numbered forty-five, but since that time we have had the misforftune of losing five of our members, which decreased our number to forty. We are proud to say that our class has members from out- lying districts whose loss would be very deeply felt. These honorable personages are: johnny Heil, Wfilbur Fenstermalcer and NVi1liam Lerch, who come from Kreidersville, and one more, Ralph Kuntz, who comes from over the hills of'iTreichlers. You know every little bit added to what you have got, makes just a little bit more, therefore we are all glad for extra additions to our class. The boys' basket ball team has shown splendid results and excellent ability. Much of this honor is due to the famous Bert Luckenbach, who hails from Levan's Park. ' The Northampton High School has a splendid orchestra. Much credit is due 'to our class for supplying it with so many of its members. Among these are: Lloyd Schissler, Carl Rhode, Leonard Keichel, Nor- wood Keck and Gladys Newhard, the latter having already served the second term in the capacity of violinist. We also have some good or.ators in our class who, we are positive, will make good. We have taken our part in the Literary Society and although the part We have taken does not amount to so very much, still we do not despair. VVe still have three more years during which we intend to sh-ow the coming classes what success and fame we mean to accomplish in the history of a High School. Stop! Look! and Listen! to the Class of IQIQ. 0 Little deeds of kindness, To your teachers now and then, May sometimes raise your standard, From zero up to ten. -45- THE FRESHMAN CLASS Q I Class Colors-Purple and Gold President .........

This is undoubtedly due to the fact that our programs have been interspersed with Sketches, Book-reviews, Narra- tives and Character Sketches, all of which have helped to remove the monotoiny of our former sessions. Each and every member has taken more interest than before and we are sure that our Friday afternoon meetings have been beneflcial in a literary way to all of us. The debates have, on the Whole, been interesting and in general debate we have found a great deal of enthusiasm. The Freshmen earn praise for the interest they have been taking in this part of the program. We hope that they will continue. Along the musical line we can not help but note the progress made in our societies under Miss Scholls instruction. Quite a few splendid numbers have been rendered during the past term. Feeling that we have made progress and that we have improved upon the various features of the society in the past, we, the class of 1916, do hereby extend our encouragement to future classes, to still further improve the literary work, as the years roll on. -47- THE ORATORICAL CONTEST 0 NE of the most pleasing events whirh the Senior class of each year looks forward to, is the Oratorical Contest, in which eight representatives take the platform to deliver eight splendid ora- tions. On the evening of February 16, this event took place for the IQI6 class. After many long hours of studying and rehearsing the Height" sat in a semi-circle upon the stage of the High School auditorium, ready to enter the contest. The great opportunity to speak before the public and a chance to 'win a prize was before them. Each did his or ner part splendidly. As to subject matter and the manner of delivery no former contest measured up to this one. The following were the speakers and the titles of their orations: "Our Nation's Crisis" ................ Lillian Beil "The Use of lnfluence" . . . . . Clifford Miller "Too Proud to Fight" . . . . . Pauline Royer "Our Nation's Mistake' . . .. joe Herman "Soldiers of Peace" ..... .... C aroline Stem "The Heroine of Peace" .. Hobart Farber "The Crossroad" ................. Clara Hoagland "The Ready Eagle and the Dove" .... Samuel Farber After an hour and a half of speaking, interrupted by High School orchestra music, the judges, Dr. XV. H. Reese, Mr. Cr, E. Oswald, and Mr. R. R. Urich, retired to decide upon the prize winners. It was diffi- cult to decide, but Dr. Reese finally brought in the decision. ln his re- marks he stated that "defeat is often an incentive to future victory". Experience has proven this to be true and we sincerely hope and wish that such may be the case with the future career of the losers. The judges' decision was as follows: Q Pauline Royer ................. . . . 3510.00 prize Clara Hoagland . . . ' . 5.00 prize joe Herman ......................... 10.00 prize Samuel Farber ...................... 5.00 prize Hearty congratulations, dear prize winners. VVe hope that in the future, you will look back upon the glorious evening of the 16th with pleasure and remember that that evening did something to spur you on to win greater and more glorious contests in the future. FRESHMAN-SOPHOMOTE DEBATE O ING. Bang, Boom! Bing, Bang, Boom! Have you ever heard a Bing, Bang, Boom! on some old tin bucket and there the the kiddies play soldier in the back yard? It is a roll call of attack begins. just so did the Freshmen and Sophomores decide to imitate the 'Innior and Senior soldiers, by having a debate on the last Friday afternoon Society program. It was a voluntary program and the volunteers were many and good. The debate however was the best and most exciting feature of the afternoon. The Freshmen soldiers. Leonard Kiechel, Bert Luckenbach and Jesse Kline on the negative side, and the Sophomore soldiers Cyril Thomas. VVilliam Rheinhold and Eugene Stubbs on the aflirmative side faced each other boldly. The question for debate was, Resoilvezi, "That the Pen is mightier than the Sword." The President gave orders to make the attack and the fight began. For about half an hour shots were fired from behind opposite rail fences until at length. the Freshmen retreated and the Sophomores came forward waving their victorious banners of Black and Gold. Both sides had fought bravely and they were to be congratulated. Vile hope that .in IQ18, when these two forces will meet again upon the battle field behind the footlights, there will be the same or even more enthusiasm and determination than existed on that glorious day of the "Pen and Sword" debate.

S.-I seen the squire and he said you would have to give it to me quick. JUNIOR-SENIOR DEBATE 0 OHV for the "really and truly" battle. On the evening of the 28th of April, IQI6. one of the greatest and most exciting debates ever heard in N. H. S., took place. The junior militia, Olive Kuntz, Hannah Dilliard and Merrit Ryan, and the Senior artillery, joe Herman, Pauline Royer and Hobart Farber, took their places eager and ready for the fray. Both sides brought out good and solid argu- ment for some time upon the question, Resolved, "That our jury system should be abolishedf' The judges, Messrs. Kohler, of the Bath High School, X!VGlCI'lJ2I.Cl1 of the East Allentown schools and Shetlock of the Coplay High School easily and quickly decided that the Negative fSeniorsil were far supenior in their argument to the Affirmative Cqjuniorsfl and brought in their verdict that the Seniors had won the debate. ' The little electric apparatus in the shape of an aeroplane, which hung above the stage, and which the juniors thought would help them win the debate, had forgotten to take its bombs along up into the air and consequently did more harm than good to the class of IQI7. After the decision had been brought in, great cheers 'arose from the Senior Cllass and they at once joined in singing their class songs with a spirit such as never before prevailed. The juniors answered the songs as merrily as they could, but it seemed rather difficult for them to sing. Finally the orchestra struck up a march and the Society adjourned, after which the Seniors gave vent to their joy over the victory. The rest of the program was very delightful. Two splendid recita- tions were given by Marie Erschen, '17, and Grace Kocher, 'I6. The musical numbers also were pleasing and gave due credit to Miss Scholl, the musical director. The evening was one which will long be remem- bered by the members of both classes. Before the debate. a good bit of rivalry had sprung up between them, but after the battle, peace was restored by an Inter-Class Social and we are sure this rivalry did both classes a great deal of good. The program follows 1 Song, "Soldiers' Chorus" ................... ........ S Choo! Recitation, "Red-Head and "Wliistle Breeches" . .... Mavic Ersclzezz Selection, "Bells of Shandon" Q ..............

A. , 0 ORTI-lAlXlP'l'ON" yelled a red h.aired and freckled faced con- ductor on the New York and Northampton Limited, as the train rolled into the station, amidst the rumble of the elevated railroad and the faithful whistle of the air-breaks. In my triumph, I jammed my forefinger into the.ribs of my sleep- ing friend Sam, half lying on his seat and snoring to the tune of a wood- lU2ll1iS saw which was either too rusty or had an over abundance of nicks. lle ,jumped up as though he were shot, only to see me hastening toward the platform with my luggage in my arms. I-le sized up the sit- uation and was soon by my side. V Wfhen we descended from the train, we stood there in bewilderment, listening to the buzzing and humming of the coming and going trains, above which every now Zlllkl then we heard the eager voices of news boys yelling, "Cement News, all about the subway explosion at 21st and Main streets, and the wedding of the ex-German Ambassador I. Herman." This was all a dreadful shock for two elderly men advanced in the sixties, but with a smile of admiration we walked thru the station as though we were both president of tl1e road. just at this moment the shadows were creeping thru the extensive windows and the glittering electric lights both illuminated the increasing dusk and displayed the most brilliant parts of the station's magnificent appearance. "W'hat's that ?" exclaimed Sam pointing to an electric sign which actually dazed us. "Sub, no soupf' muttered Sam slowly. "Say l-Iobie, how about getting a soup," he suggested wisely and meanwhile with a grin, pulled his belt about six holes tighter as circum- stantial evidence of his need. Of course, one would naturally be hungry after travelling an entire day on a steel railroad coach, where one had access to nothing more than peanuts, candy, chewing-gum and pop-corn, so I readily consented to his timely suggestion. So down the stairs we went, arm in arm. The lights at the bottom of the stairs cast a reflection on the cleanly kept white marble steps, that brightenedgour spirits and made us throw out our chests still further till Sams vest came near losing a button. lfVl1en we reached the bottom of the stairs, we were confronted by a man, partly concealed in a blue suit decorated with engraved brass buttons. who told us, we had to buy -51- ,'. in M ' I Ml' W E a ticket ere we could enter. Sam, somewvhat exasperated, stepped forward with his thumbs un- der the lapels of his coat to tell him who he was. lflut for some reason or other, I have always had respect for a man thus uniformed and when I glanced at the hard mahogany club clinched in his huge right hand, I had even more for Sam, so I gently pushed him toward the ticket win- dow. The direction of the push was entirely accidental. Nevertheless Sam took the hint and walked over to the ticket window. "Two please," he demanded. "XNhere to ?" was the snappy re- sponse. "To a plate of soup, of course," was the sarcastic reply. "Come speak quick and git. Can't you you're detaining the people in back of you P" So after a heated argument-thank heavens the agent was caged up, for Sam's temper was satusrated-he discovered that we had entered a subway station instead of a restaurant. '6Well, give me two tickets to some swell hotel," muttered Sam in a subdued tone. "'xVill the Palace do P" the agent inquired. "NVell, it sounds Ht enough," admitted Sam, pulling out a roll of yellow backs. Un receiving his change he joined me and related his adventure in disappointment. ,lust then the electric train drew into the station. so we made haste in order to secure a seat. VVith the elbowing of arms and the demolish- ing of shoe tips we were shoved into the train by those in the rear and packed therein as tight as sardiues. Sam was afraid to exale all his breath for fear that he would lose the required amount of room for the expansion of his chest during in- halation. It was in fact the first fat reducer Sam had taken for years. All this would not have been so discouraging had the crowd not largely consisted of sutfragettes on their way to the polls up city. Lucky to say, I only had three hat pins rammed into my Cranium, while Sam, he- ing less fortunate, got one directly in the eye. After about an hour's torture, which some frail-minded people call a ride, we reached our destination-a relief. Wfe scrambled thru the crowd of masculine women, like two roses among thorns, with our laces aglow, for in spite of our old age we had not forgotten to blush in the presence of the once fair sex-but now so utterly changed. But alas! The Palace! A palace indeed it was, for it lacked nothing -5 2- forthe make up of a palace. 'l-lad the Astor Hotel of New York been placed aside of the Palace. the former would have resembled a log cabin. As soon as we registered, a cunning looking bell boy whistling, "Amidst the Glows of Northampton," a very popular piece of ragtime, grabbed our baggage and made for the elevator. VVe followed him for fear he was trying to run away with our possessions. You know. queer things happen in these large cities. VVe were directed to a suite of rooms, which King Louis the XlV'th of France would have been "tickled to death" to sit in, but being too fatigued to enjoy the unexpected luxury. we soon hit the pillows and while I dreamt of suifragettes. Sams specialties were soups and ticket agents. The next morning we found our way out of the hotel and prome- naded down street. The streets showed all signs of an attractive city. The flashy automobiles glittered like mirrors in the sunlight, that entered from the heavens thru the gap-like opening at the very top of the sky- scrapers which seemed to pierce the heavens to an unknown heigth. Every now and then we heard the 'iclip-clap" of a lonely looking stray horse bearing a tag similar to a dog license and sewing the same purpose. The pure white asphalt, which glittered with all the brilliancy and cleanliness of the very house-hold, was traversed by automobiles and Fords spinning up and down the highway, barely missing the traffic of- Hcers. As we were strolling along wondering whether Rip Van W-'inkel's return to his native town could have been more mysterious than our's, we came across a taxiplane standing along the curb. "All aboard. for a bird's eye view of Northampton," yelled a man dressed in a pilot's uniform. Naturally Sam and l were both Spartans in bravery and courage: so we did not hesitate to meet his daring offer, but made a dive for the two nearest vacant seats. As the buzzing of the motors increased we ascended in a vertical direction, passing the windows of lawyers, dentists, doctors. brokers, insurance agents and many similar money makers. After we had passed the last skyscraper, we sailed in a horizontal direction. The air proved to be very refreshing-the Atlas now used smokeless coal and made a dnstless cement-the atmosphere bore an in- vigorating enchantment and truly rivaled that of the sea shore. After soaring around awhile seeing things of more or less interest, -53- my attention was drawn to a ball park, that resembled the Polo grounds of New York. I immediately asked the man along side of me, who was playing. I-Ie looked at me in astonishment and said: "XfVhy Northampton and the Yankees, the first game of the XVorld Seriesf' No longer did the sight seeing trip please me: I only longed to be on earth to take in the game. In my now unattentive state of mind l perceived city parks and spires which Europe's cathedrals would be proud to be beautitied with. I looked, gazed and stared to find some familiar spots, but the only one that I could find was the Lehigh River, which was so altered that it ap- peared by no means natural. Yet all this did not interest me for I longed to be back on earth to witness the ball game. My desire came quickly enough when the pilot yelled: "Get your parach-utes." E But I could not stir, I was petrified, so down and down I went with a snappy "Hello and goodbye" to every one I passed until I crashed on something hard. Then to my astonishment I discovered that I had fallen out of bed and that it was time for school. -Hobart Fczrber.

BOYS' GLEE CLUB ,im - I f' e wifi USI ORT.H.+XMPTON seems to be very proud of our High School. The rapid musical advancement is a topic of almost daily dis- cussion. Yule owe a good part of this to our lnstructor. Miss Amy Scholl. Through her patience and direction, we have the two courses, Theory and Appreciation of Music added to the regular school course. ln our Chorus singing, one can easily hear the basses and tenors, equally balanced by the sopranos and altos. The three upper classes have caused the Literary Society program to be more interesting by several renditions of their quartettcs, sextettes and octettes. The Senior male quartette is composed of Leo Costello, Hiram Kuntz. Russel Kern and Samuel Farber. ln addition to this quartette. the Seniors also have a girls sextette. composed of Lillian lleil, Ruth Semmel, Grace Kocher, Edith Newhard, Pauilne Royer and Esther Xause. The Juniors have a mixed sextette composed of Mabel llest, .Xlarie Erschen, Hattie 'XfVitt, Hattie Becker, Ella Frcer, lforrest Hunt and Arthur WVolf. 0 T HE GLEE CLUB Our Girls' Glee Club is composed of eight members from each class. They have appeared in Concert several times during the school term and pleased the audience with their airy renditions. The Glee Clubs are now in existence for several years and each, year shows a marked improve- ment in singing. The Cwlee Club is composed of the following: Frcshmclz-Renia Shelheimer, Mazie Berg, Beatrice Gouger. Grace Smith, lrene Stettler, lrene Young.

Rodenbach, Hannah Dilliard, Hattie Becker, Miriam Kleppinger. Semurs - Gladys Milham, Esther Weaver, Lillian Beil, Pauline Royer, Lillian Bernhardt, Esther Nause. Grace Kocher. The Boys' Glee Club is also worthy of attention. One can hear the boys at their best in one of their selections: "Ding, Dong Bell". They watch their "Ps" and "p's" and consequently the outcome is good shad- ing. ln a like manner the members of the Boys' Glee Club have se- lected eight from each class. The Boys' Glee Club is composed of the following: Freslzmen - Norwood Keck, Hillard Miller. Tony Becker, Lloyd Schissler, David Getz, Carl Rode, Leonard Kiechel.

Sl?1Il0l'S -Leo Costello, Arthur Hahn, Hobart Farber, Samuel Farber, Russel Kern, Earl Hawk. The School Chorus, both Glee Clubs and the Orchestra combined their forces to make th-e annual Spring Concert a success. The move- ment for a Spring Concert originated in IQI2, and has now become an annual affair to be rendered in May. The numbers on the program were this year performed by various members of the High School with great ability. Gladys Milham gave a very pleasing reading, entitled "Mrs Smart Learns to Skate." The Boys' Glee Club sang "Carry Me Back to Old Virgiunyug the Girls' Glee Club, "Spring Songn: the High School Chorus sang "Even Bravest Heart May Swell", "The Hiring Fair" and "O ljltalia Beloved". O ORCHESTRA Since the year IQII, the High School Orchestra has been increasing in number and talent. New members are yearly coming into the orches- tra and at present it is at .it's best. The Freshmen generally have quite a time of it, getting accustomed to the method of instruction and even the instructor himself. For the past two seasons. the orchestra has been under the instruction of Mr. Lloyd Moll, one of the leading violinists -5 7- of the City of Allentown. Prior to this, Mr. Richard Neubert had been the instructor. Among the members of the Orchestra are: f7iGll'f.YfS-Rlltll Sernmel, Leota Newhard, Evna Stroh. Firsf Violinists - Ralph Bartholomew.

The object of the organization is to cherish feelings of friend- ship among its members, further their interests, and sustain and advance the interests of the High School. The Association was organized july 26, IQO4, with a membership of seventeen. The present membership is one hundred and forty-eight. The Association offers prizes every year amounting to twenty-five dollars. The first two prizes of ten dollars each, given to the two best speakers at the oratorical contest are furnished by the Association, as well as the five dollar prize offered to the person having attained the highest average at the end of the four year course. In order to raise money to pay for these prizes, concerts or plays are given. On the evening of November 26, 1915, a successful concert was rendered by members of the Alumni in the High School Auditorium. A card party and dance was also held on Xhfednesday evening, December 29, IQI5, at Howells Dancing Academy. Although the weather was very unpleas- ant, many members and friends braved the storm and enjoyed the event. A banquet, an event always well attended and enjoyed by all present, is usually held some evening during commencement week. The officers serving at the present time are: President, Ralph F. Smith '1O: Vice President, Katie Raubenhold '06: Recording Secretary, Helen M. Newhard i101 Financial Secretary, Helen S. Reinhard 'O4: Treasurer, Edith Hills '13: Trustees, Harry Rice 'O22 Katie Raubenhold 'O6: Harold Best '1o. The Executive Committee consists of the officers and a member of every class. The following represent their classes on the committee: :Xmy Scholl '02: Mrs. Charles Nicholas 'O3: Fred Terwilliger ,042 Mabel Knappenberger 'ogg Mrs. Edward Erick 'o6g Jennie Peters 'O7Q Mrs. Olarence Beil 'oS: Jennie Fenstermacher 'ogg Thomas Blumer YIOQ Clay- ton Gable '11: Leon Kuntz '12: George Miller '13: joseph Moore '14 and Edwin Hess VIS. We extend our greetings to the class of 1916. VVe certainly were glad to hear that the members of this class were always ready to help in any event which. might better the High School and our wish is that as soon as they become members of the Alumni Association they will put forth all efforts and help ns reach the goal for which we are striving. We wish to congratulate the members of the class for having completed the High School work and hope, that as each member of the class unfurls the sails of his or her ship a11d passes out into the sea of life, the journey will be a successful one and that some day all wi-ll reach port safely.

IQUNTZ, '16. 0 "NOTHING TO DO" Nothing to do till tomorrow No place to go but school, Only one good natured teacher Wfho ever lets us break a rule. Nothing to do all day Except our lessons drear. Only Mr. Franlcenfield CH To fill our hearts with fear. Nothing to hear but bells That summon us to class, No one to knock but teachers And they get square-alas! But, after they've read the above complaints, They'll sympathize with us, we pray. Nothing to do but work That's the 1916 motto, they say -C. L. S. '16, Music Teacliel'-You will please copy the following and memorize: Part Song: A choral composition which has not been sufficient- ly rehearsed. It is part song and part not. Time: This is the measure of the length of notes. The student and amateur has but little use for it and takes as his motto: "We take no note of time." Tuna: An obsolete succession of notes intended to please. It is not used in our modern music. Slide Trombozze: A peculiar instrument which the performer swallows and regurgitates at will. DREAMS XVe came to school, one day in September Both small and shy, as well we remember. Our band then numbered two score and ten NVhich has dwindled to thirty-flve women and men. ln History and English, we shone so bright That the teachers regarded what we did quite right. Some typewriting records show our boys at their best And the clicking thereof ne'er gives anyone rest. Basket-ball had some bright stars from our class And in base-ball our boys surely will pass, Uur singing we do, well to pass by For such noise ne'er before Hlled this old High, But violin, piano and Cornet XVere some of the wonders of our bright set. In talking we surely surpass the others For that we learned from our own mothers, The teachers will be glad when we go For they have often told us so, So now we bid you a kind farewell And hope you will support next year's class. as well! -R.

' -75- JUST LIKE SOME EVE KNODV Some years ago there was a shiftless youth who was even too lazy to laugh. He was considered a burden to the whole community, so it was decided to bury him alive, to which he did not even object. Well, the funeral procession was on its way to the happy hunting ground, when it was halted by a kind hearted minister who had great sympathy for the youth on learning of his gruesome fate. I-Ie said. "Give the lad into my care and I am sure I can make something out of him. I have enough corn to feed him through his whole life." Upon hearing this, the youth who lay motionless in the cofhn, shoved open the lid and slowly stuck his head out and inquired: "Is the corn shelled?" "No," was the answer. "Then go ahead with the funeral." A Dialogue which took place between a junior and a Senior on tl1e night of the Senior-junior Inter-Class Social, about II.45 P. M. CAST 1.

VVe will have a nice day to-morrow if it don't rain." Junior-"Yes, I hope so." This part could not be plainly understood. Anyhow the Senior was trying to make a Date to take the Junior home, because he had come with the paeer. Then the "Another Junior" appears on the scene. The Ex-Pres. says to the "Another junior": "Didnt I promise you that you could take me home, since the Inter-Class Debate F" Another junior. "Sure All right to-night." Ex-Pres. "Oh, well Champion: wait until some other night." The two juniors go down Main Street. II.5O P. M. The Champion goes up Main Street CUp to Lilv's, where he kept the pacer.j He looked sore and sad.
