SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
"Men Hlllull come and men -may go,
But I go 011- f0rcz'e'r."
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.

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

"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!

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

ner and always scores many points. Leo would

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
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.
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
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.
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
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-

"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.
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.
LILLIAN ELIZABETH BERNHARDT
"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.
FANNIIE HORTENSE HORN
"Al: 111.v.'-lmzcf weak ll thing the lzmrl of
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-
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.
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.

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

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.
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
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".
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-
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.
Then while our colors proudly glow
Cver us so, over us so,
Gaily a-singing we will go,
Merrily oh, merrily oh.
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.
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.
'I916 CLASS PROPHECY
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
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
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-
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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.
HISTORY OF THE JUNIOR CLASS
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.

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
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.

FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
E now come to the class of IQIQ, which is last but not least.
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.
Little deeds of kindness,
To your teachers now and then,
May sometimes raise your standard,
From zero up to ten.

OUR LITERARY SOCIETY i
N the past year our literary society has met with marked sue-
eess. 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.
THE ORATORICAL CONTEST
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-
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.
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

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

Cqjuniorsfl and brought in their verdict that the Seniors had won the
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.

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
,'. in M
' I Ml' W
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
Un receiving his change he joined me and related his adventure in
,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
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
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
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,
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
I-Ie looked at me in astonishment and said:
"XfVhy Northampton and the Yankees, the first game of the XVorld
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.

BOYS' GLEE CLUB
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
The Juniors have a mixed sextette composed of Mabel llest, .Xlarie

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.

in number and talent. New members are yearly coming into the orches-

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
of the City of Allentown. Prior to this, Mr. Richard Neubert had been
the instructor. Among the members of the Orchestra are:

THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
HE Alumni Association of th-e Northampton Hiigh School is
an organization composed of graduates of the High School.
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

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

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.

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.
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!

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

Senior-"Nice evening. VVe will have a nice day to-morrow if it
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. Hard Luck! Champion, make
it good next time.
