Motivated by the many historical events of Northampton and
vicinity in Colonial life, we, the class of.l 927, eager to impress upon
our readers not only the cold, hard facts that history records about
our forefathers, but also to present a survey of the beauty that lies
in the study of their social customs, have endeavored to trace this
phase of Colonial life by caricature and appropriate scenes as best
befit the different divisions of this book. Our main purpose,
however, has been to have this AMPTENNIAN show all the activities
of high school life from an educational point of view, rather than
merely emphasize the attractiveness of the publication. Within
limits we have produced action pictures to visualize to the reader
the original setting for the particular activity. May the readers
of the l927 AMPTENNIAN renew their school interest: may they be
enthusiastic about their Alma Mater, and may they cheerfully
recall high school happenings of their day. May this work serve
as a towering monument, built with a splendid purpose to com-
memorate the happiness, joys, sorrows, ambitions, and aspirations
of the members of the class of l927.

,,f,, 1927 Class H zstory gg,
On September 4, I923, one hundred and fifteen sturdy freshmen landed llflal
on the rough and knowledge bound coast of the Northampton High School.
Some were sturdy explorers while others were the quiet Quakers, while others
were pilgrims who came to conquer new lands for a specific goal, that of gaining
knowledge from the new land.
The first year found them riding the rough waves of knowledge, but taking a
255155 prominent place in the new land, although too shy to demand a place of recog-

Q.eg?g1,1 nltlon in the government of the country. Many members of this enterprising
H ml expedition soon gave up the hope of gaining some knowledge, and left the class,
with the view of entering the larger institution, "The World,', less prepared
than the others will be.
The second year found sixty-two of the class coming back to go through
Zi :T I l . . - . . f."i1f'f
another year of happiness and sorrow, which exists in this land of knowledge.
This year a more prominent place was taken by the class. The class entered
into many activities, in some activities the class held the highest honors, and

always helping its Alma Mater. Sports, music, clubs and other activities 511255
found the sophomores taking part in its activities.
The third year found a still smaller number back to acquire more knowledge
in this land. This year found them taking an active part in the activities of the
High School. Many honors were won, many obstacles were overcome, many
hardships were endured, but all was done eventually with the passing of the time.
will-5 The fourth year found forty-six of the class remaining in the last year in the
1 land of knowledge trying to overcome obstacles and winning honors for them-
llwldl selves as well as for others, doing their best, accomplishing many feats and
iff' partaking of the most important activities in the High School. This year was
the busiest of all of the four years, many new things had to be clone, and all
were accomplished with their motto in mind, "Labor conquers everything." ll
j..'Ql,Q This was the end of the great "nation's" career, as a group, within the portals
of the Northampton High School. The ways parted here, many going to higher Tm
institutions of learning, others going into the greatest institution, "The World."

"Goodll1ings come in small packages."
Even though you cannot always see 'Matz," you can
usually hear her, for she is one of the group of senior girls
who are known as the most talkative in N. H. S. "Matz"
has a pleasing personality and has many friends. Being
one of the seven members of the National Honor Society
is enough to explain that she is a studious and brilliant
pupil. "Matz" is very popular in the high school orches-
tra, having served as pianist for the last three years.
Martha also sings in the Glee Club.
"Matz" is very much interested in athletics, playing on
the varisty basketball team for two years.

"There was nothing but glistening dewdrops
Remained of my dream lodayf'
Gaze upon this picture and see if you can recognize
three hobbies: sports, writing letters, dreaming. Many
a time have we caught "Bathy" looking into space. We
may attribute it, this last year, to a certain person leaving
good old N. H. S. in the class before ???, but that gives us
the hobby of letter writing.
And now, sports-Howard showed his mettle in football
and baseball. He could get rid of his tackle on the offense,
and many a play never got started when this dashing end
was in form. He played first base on the baseball team
for two years. He also played the violin in the orchestra
and did his part real well in our senior play. His friendly
ways have won him much in school life and athletics, and
should carry him far in his future life.

Here is a line light-haired sheik from Washington Ave-
nue. Upon entering school he was a bashful chap, but.
as it came to the junior and senior years the teachers could
hardly stop him from talking. Wilbert's interests are
mostly in sports. At every game we could hear him above
all others in rooting for his home team. ln his senior year
he took great interest and became a sub on the varsity
football and basketball teams. Wilbert also served as a
snappy forward on the class team during the basketball
Though he has not decided on his work in the future, we
think that he will be successful in life. Here's luck to you,

"Once a demure country lass,
Bu! lhe 'city' changed her 'class'."
Yes, "Betty" was very bashful when she entered our
"ff class four years ago, but she has been cured of most of it
and she is now one of our most prominent members.
"Betty" is one of those bright students that surrounding
jf. hamlets send to our schools, and she has surely shown her fry' .

took no active part in athletics, but was a booster just the

Q55 "Bill" entered the portals of N. I-I. S. with an ambition
in mind-to get a good education. I-le accomplished his
purpose fairly well for the first two years, and then "Bill"
gave up the idea of studying. They say it's athletics and

you've guessed it. Barbara Hilberg, who hardly looks

"Ha's every inch a man and lhafs why hc's no! so tall."
I-lere's one of the smallest men in the Senior Class.
But his height does not hinder him any in his school work,
because Hillard is an active boy in performing his duties
and is willing to do anything that is asked of him. It is
because of this kindness that he has so many friends of
both sexes. When he first came to high school he seemed
to be rather bashful, but he soon sat up and took notice
and saw all the nice things of life-even in the girls.
Although "l'lilly" was much interested in his school
work. he also devoted much of his interest to sports. He
played on the Senior Class basketball team his four years,
being captain of his team in his fourth year. With his
alertness and quickness he has been a wonderful aid in all
games and led them on to victory.

in the class. Royer has been a greabasset to H. S.,
being captain of the basketball five in his senior year,
quarterback on the football squad and second. sacker on

"five" played such good basketball during. the l926-27

orator, winning second prize in the oratorical contest. He
has shown his ability in taking many leadlng roles of plays.

"A youth of labor in such an age of ease."
"Butch" is another of the "four horsemen" of Coplay
who distinguished himself in athletics at Coplay High and
at Northampton. "Butch" was our star fullback, whose
line plunges we will always remember. He was also one
of the first eight players on the varsity basketball team
and outfielder on the nine. Louis thinks studies come
after athletics and girls, but he doesn't take a back seat
in any of his classes, especially in English.
"Butch" is also the "clown" of our class. His "wise
cracks" often cheered his fellowmen to victory when they
were on the verge of defeat. We do not know what work
"Butch" intends to follow, but we can rest assured that he
will accomplish his aim in whatever he attempts.

How well I recollect the last week of August of the year 1942! Because it
was one of the most happy periods of my life l feel highly honored to relate my
experiences during that short period of time.
As I was walking down the main thoroughfare of the city of New York on
my way to the station to take the train bound for Allentown, a car drew up at
the curb. My old friend, Willard Hahn, alighted from the auto and invited
me to go to a place l would never have dreamed of.
After a five-minute drive we reached a very large building with three letters
on it, S. H. S. Upon inquiry, Willard told me that they represented three
names very familiar to me: Smith, Hahn and Stout. The three were partners
of the largest contracting firm of the city-Hahn was in charge of the architec-
tural work, Smith of the mechanical, and Stout was general foreman. While
on an inspection tour of the building, I was surprised to find at various office
desks, Verna Dotter, Barbara Hilberg, Hedwig Krencs, Harry Lentz and
On our way out of the building, Willard and I met Francis Eschen and "Joe"
Termena, both of whom had just returned on the S. S. Maxima. "joe" had
been studying for the ministry in Europe, while Francis informed us that he
had spent six months abroad preparing for an ambassadorship. Walter Kutzler
was Francis' trustworthy secretary.
"Joe" Francis and I then set out once more for the station. Again we were
halted by our old chum, Hillard Rabenold, who was on his way to Johnstown,
Pennsylvania, where he owned a large garage. Hillard informed us that four
more of our classmates were in Johnstown: Walter Newharcl was Hillard's
partner in businessg Andrew Micio, head mechanic: Wilbert Beers, sales manager:
Howard Bath, postmaster of the city.
A news stand was the next attraction. In one of the leading papers, The
Laiesi News, I read to my friends an article saying that Webster Schneck, friend
of the editor, E. Albert Royer, had spent the past week with him. Frederick
Fogel was business manager of the same paper.
Having reached the terminal we were about to purchase our tickets when
Louis Schaadt ran toward us. He offered to take us to the Dunmore Flying
Field, where his latest plane, which he and Charles Coble had designed, was
waiting, he said, to take us home. Before turning on our direct route home he
"flew" us to Redcliffe, a new plant of theirs, still very small but showing sure
signs of growth and prosperity.
"lt will only take us a few minutes to Hy over and see Paul," insisted Louis.
We agreed and soon found Paul, working very hard in organizing a chain of
stores in that vicinity. Paul's secretary was Anna Chandick. At the same
town we saw Lillie Day as community nurse. Paul suggested that we go to
see one of his stores built by Otto Miller, contractor, of Nlaneuville.
In the evening at Redcliffe we heard Alice Trankley from the party platform,
campaigning for the fall election of state representative to the General Assembly.
Anna Rodenbach and Florence Kleppinger were her assistants, Anna typing
her speeches for the newspapers, and Florence mapping out the territories they
were to cover.

The next day Louis and Charles made arrangements to take another flight
east and that we should again accompany them instead of taking the train as we
had planned. The airship worked fine for about one-third ofthe distance. Then
Charles found trouble with the engine and we were forced to land. Having
decided to take the train for the rest of the distance we walked into a drug store
until train time with the hope of getting something to overcome our dizziness.
Edgar Kline, owner of the store, chatted with us for a long time, telling us that
David Lucks was a popular attorney of the same town.
Francis, l-lillard, "Joe" and l finally boarded the train where we were sur-
prised to see the Gernerd twins, who were both on their way to their respective
high schools, where each of them was in charge of athletics. Charles made
known to us that Elizabeth Nagle was teaching at the same high school and
that Dorothy Mertz was a teacher in the junior l-ligh of that city.
"That reminds me," remarked George, "Elizabeth Bibighaus is teaching in
the same school in which l am instructor." Louise Luckenbach and Lovenia
Miller, both married, were kindergarten teachers in a newly erected building.
Arriving at Allentown we bid each other farewell, hoping to meet again in the
The following day Roger Laub paid me a visit before leaving to take up his
duties as principal of the school in which he had formerly taught. He seemed
exceedingly proud and happy, not only in telling us of his wife and three chil-
dren, but also that on his teaching staff were former classmates of ours: Margaret
Miller, Myrtle Nagle, Katherine Minich, Jessie Keefer, Martha Bachman,
Edith Odenwelder and Ruth Farber.
I think now that you can readily see why l feel so happy in seeing all of my
dear classmates within a week and finding that none of them had forgotten the
class of l927.

1928 Class History
"Inactivity" has been an unknown word in the class of '28 during the past
year. This term seemed very short to them, for all were busy preparing for
their work as seniors.
The class is represented in almost every organization in the school. Members
belong to the Debating Club, S. B. A., High School Happenings Staff, Hi-Y
and Orchestra. Much material for the varsity athletic teams was taken from
the junior Class, for Donald Newhard, Lewis Flom, Walter Hawk, Charles
Reichard, Alec Susko, John Moore, Mary Cougher, Irene Kline and Ferne
Schaeffer have played on athletic teams during the year.
Our biggest feat, however, was the inauguration of the public speaking con-
test in the junior year. The contest was a fine one with lots of "pep." The
participants were Margaret Kleppinger, Louise Nagle, Catherine Rice, Carrie
Roth, Donald Newhard, Paul Malarchuk, Willard Boyer and Charles Sieger.
We are now looking forward to the time when we shall become seniors and
hope that we can do as seniors should do.

1929 Class History A
The year 1926-27 turned the "green" freshmen into earnest sophomores.
We have proven ourselves earnest and willing workers in the numerous activities
in which we were engaged during the year.
The class is very much interested in debating and defeated the freshmen
in their first forensic assault. In our second attempt we were not as fortunate,
losing to the first classmen by a two to one decision.
Glancing at the orchestra we find a large number of sophomores represented
there. However, this is not the only place where we find the second year class
students, for they have their representatives in the S. B. A., the Hi-Y and the
Although deprived of the opportunity of having the cafeteria because of
changes made in the Domestic Science rooms, the sophomore girls served num-
erous luncheons in quaint and dainty style to which the teachers were invited.
The play "Fleurette" gave the sophs a chance to exhibit their ability in danc-
ing and singing, for the choruses comprised many of them.
Now that we come to the close of our sophomore year we are looking ahead
into our next two years of High School, hoping to meet with as much success as
we have in the past two years.

The 192 7 Zlmptennian
1930 Class History
On September 7, l926, the portals of N. H. S. were opened to a group of
people called freshmen and who were destined to become one of the main factors
of high school activity. It took us quite some time to get acquainted, for we
were very large in number and most of the year was devoted to bleaching our
color of green from our faces and habits, but now as we approach the second
division of our high school career we notice that we are quite ready and eager
The class is well represented in various organizations and activities of the
school: the Orchestra, the Glee Club, the S. B. A., the Debating Club, and the
Art Club, while quite a few have been successful in making the athletic teams
which is unusual for freshmen to do. The class has shown dramatic ability in
comprising a large part of the choruses in "Fleurette" and public speaking
ability in winning and losing one of the two interclass debates with the freshmen.
We are very proud of our class artist and cartoonist, Kenneth Vandegrift.
He has given numerous chalk talks in chapel and provided entertainment between
the acts of the Senior Class play. Kenneth also draws cartoons for our school
The other members of the class may not be so talented, but as we complete
our first year's journey through high school we have begun to learn one of the
greatest class functions pulling together. With such a good start we hope to
continue and become a great asset to N. H. S.

Review of the Football Season
Enjoying its second year as a sport in Northampton High, football came into its own and
is now recognized as the major sport. Our first attempt in l925 was not very successful, but
not until our '26 season got under way did we realize what that previous season did accomplish
along development of material. We started out with a hard schedule, playing teams with many
years' advantage over us. But we came out victorious four times, tied honors twice, and bowed
to defeat twice. We scored 52 points to our opponents' 70.
The Athletic Association gave the team a sumptuous banquet at the end of the season and
presented the letters and gold footballs to the seniors playing half the total number of quarters.
The Exchange Club had banqueted the team previous to the "Catty" game at home as a sort
of "pep" session.
Our backfield was composed of Royer, at quarter: Schaadt at full: Hawk and Eschen at halfs.
Eschen was elected captain and fulhlled his position at half and captaincy very well. Hawk
played the other half and is our newly elected captain for the l927 season. Royer called the
signals and played safety man on the defense very ably. Schaadt, our big line smasher, played
a wonderful game. He often tore the line to shreds with his weight and speed at getting away
and was our big defensive man behind the line.
Bath and "Georgie" Gernerd held down the wing positions as they should be done. Kutzler
and "Charlie" Cernerd were our charging tackles and their work on that old '26 team will not
be forgotten. The guards were played by Micio and Sieger, both veterans of the '25 season.
"Fritz" Fogel played his first year at center with no end of credit. He played every minute of
the schedule, a feat of which he was the sole accomplisher. He relayed the ball well and fought
off the plunges like a veteran on the defense.
On the second team we find Cullen at full. His punting proved valuable in the Wilson Boro
game. Otto Miller played the one half and Beers the other. "Awmish" Miller proved his mettle
all along and especially in the last "Catty" game. Coble called the signals and played well at
Bangor. The line men were Druckenmiller and Newhard, who played several games
at guard. Reichard, also a junior, will help next year. The others are Gogle, Silfies, Bilheimer,

Moran and Lutte who is a promising frosh for the backfield. Steinmetz left us for Palmerton
late in the season.
The team trotted out on the N. A. A. field for their first game with Pen Argyl. Familiar
with out last year's record the fans' "dope" was entirely upset and we turned in a I3-6 victory.
We scored in the early part of the second quarter. Pen Argyl came back and scored in the
beginning of the second half and the third quarter found a deadlock. Eschen, captain, displayed
a brand of football that deserves no end of credit. His spirit seemed to electrify the other ten
men. We came back and scored, Eschen taking it over after a series of off-tackle smashes. He
also kicked the goal.
With hearts and hopes way up, we traveled to Stroudsburg the following Saturday. There
we encountered a team who outweighed us and had several years of experience to their credit.
But although we played out of our class, we put up the gamest battle, but went down for the
count at I2-0. They scored early on a blocked punt, running I4 yards for the tally. The ball
zig-zagged till the final frame and they scored on an intercepted pass. They could do little
through the line, while the Black and Orange proved good on offense and defense, but couldn't
put over the punch when the goal posts were in view.
Wilson Boro came here for the next tilt and looked quite confident after lacing Northampton,
47-0, last season. It was a game never to be forgotten. Eschen was out, due to a broken nose
received in the Stroudsburg game. Royer piloted the team successfully against the invaders.
Our only chance was a field goal attempted in the third quarter, but failed by inches. Schaadt
was taken out of the tackle position and put at full. He stayed there the rest of the season, which
easily explains the great game he put up when shifted. Wilson scored on a forward pass, but
the play was recalled when one of their men clipped out a man from the rear. The game ended
with the ball in mid-field as it had been for a great part of the game.
"Catty" came up for the first of a two-game series. Up until this year, "Catty" had a great
deal of sports running their own way, but that was destined to fall, and fall it did with a 7-6
score. The largest crowd ever at a game at Northampton turned out and they weren't dis-
appointed. "Catty" scored first on a cleverly executed triple pass, but their kick for extra
point was smothered by three of the Konkrete forwards. From then on till the final whistle
the Black and Orange rallied and finally Schaadt took it over. With the count, 6-6, Eschen
dropped back to try for the point. The line held perfectly and the goal was kicked, giving us a
one-point margin. We again started a march down the field. Forward passes and line bucks
netted us big gains and the ball was in our possession on "Catty's" three-yard line when the
final whistle sounded. One more play would have materialized the score, but 7 loomed before
us as we stopped and 6 seemed much too small to suit "Catty."
Next we found Lehighton on the schedule. It proved a dismal game and the Black and
Orange tasted defeat for the second time. But a mental defeat was impossible when the capa-
bility of the officials was weighed, it wouldn't even balance a headgear or shoulder pad. Playing
against these odds and added to that, the outweighing and experience, the score ended, 28-6. All
kinds of violations seemed to pass by the officials, who were brothers, as though they were per-
fectly correct. But laying these aside, we played our best and a defeat like this hurts at the time
of its infliction.
We next went to Bangor and hung up a tie, I2-IZ. Bad breaks before the game broke up the
team. Schaadt pulled a ligament in his hip at signal practice, the night before the game. Royer
was out with a wrenched knee, received in the "Catty" game and again in the Lehighton game.
Coble and Beers played and put up a fine game, although their lack of weight and experience
handicapped them. Eschen again proved his ability at running the ball and scored first. Although
his failure at kicking both extra points was felt gravely, his run of 90 yards in returning a punt
for a score proved a thrill. George Gernerd picked up a fumble and raced 96 yards for a touch-
down. Bangor unloosed an aerial attack and twice they came from behind to tie us. Keat.
our former athletic mentor, handled the Bangorites.
Palmerton came to Northampton, prepared to keep up their remarkable season. They
were undefeated and heavy odds were placed upon them. But the Konkrete Kids had a greater
desire to win and their efforts were not futile, when we turned in a 7-6 victory. It was a tough
one to lose, but victory is sweet and soothing when one can chalk up the only victory over a
remarkable football machine as represented the Stephen S. Palmer High School. They scored
first on a fluke, but their alertness gave them the touchdown. On a double pass, Hawk fumbled
and mistaking the umpire's whistle for the referee's, failed to recover it and Palmerton did. They
had four yards to go for a touchdown. N. H. S. checked their attack on the five-yard line and
the fumble followed. The kick for extra point was blocked with easiness by Andy MICIO, our
husky little guard. Then came that desire for victory, and Schaadt delivered the punch. Hitting

left tackle and right tackle like battering rams, the entire backfield plowed through for four
first downs, and then Schaadt took it over. The ucrooshaln moment came. Eschen was set
to try for the point. the ball was snapped, it snapped right back, but from his toe, over the up-
rights, and the 7 looked like a million. The game ended soon and we were victorious, and tired.
After trimming Palmerton, we decided to scrap the zinc and take on the iron again. Our
final game-at "Catty." We decided to make up for the two defeats last year, and we did, very
emphatically. It was short and sweet, 7-0. "Catty" was entirely outplayed, and only showed a
little spirit in the beginning of the half, but they were stopped on our ten-yard line, and never
saw it again. They did get quite a few breaks when Eschen fumbled several punts. The field
was mud here, mud there. mud everywhere. But football is football and mud or no mud, the
Black and Orange made the Brown and White taste defeat, a la mud. The First play after we
kicked off, "Turdy" Sieger came up for air, looking like a mud-bath. lt was fun. especially when
7-0 looms in view. Hawk, at half, took the ball over for an early score in the first quarter.
Schaadt was back on a right tackle formation. He received the ball and hit off tackle, handing
the ball to Hawk as he hit the line. Hawk turned and followed to the left side where Royer at
quarter was interference. The "Catty" team was all crossed-up and the two wearers of the
black ran alone till Daugherty, "Catty" captain, came too close. It was a forty-yard run and
Royer clipped him as Hawk flashed across the line. The play went through the thickest mud
of the field and this also helped to keep "Catty" away, thinking that we would stay on the good
part. Eschen kicked the goal. Royer made a short run and took it over again, but the ball
was taken back when holding was charged against Northampton. It proved a fine curtain for the
football season and long will the season of 1926 be remembered. It established football as the
major sport, thanks to Mr. Hillegas, the hard work and the faithfulness of the squad, the backers
and the followers. May l927 prove just as thrilling and just as successful.

Review of Basketball Season
The trend of affairs turned our eyes and thoughts toward basketball, a well-established sport
33,,g55 in N. H. S., made still more attractive by the prospects of a great team. The squad, 42 in all, 'J
responded to Coach Hill:-.as' call. It was cut down to I5 and real work started. Royer, after
three years of playing for the Black and Orange, was chosen captain. Kutzler, Miller and New-
We hard were all back from last year's squad and Eschen filled the other vacancy. The Gernerd
twins and Schaadt finished the eight that traveled and Beers, Flom, Reichard, Sieger, Lucks and
Smith made up the remainder.
We tore down the curtain for the start of the Lehigh Valley interscholastic Basketball League
at Palmerton on December 3rd, The game was fast but not until the second half did the Black
and Orange tear loose. At half time it stood, 7-5, and the game ended. 23-I4, in our favor. :Tis

We lost our first game to Stroudsburg on their floor the following Friday. Disqualification
by personals broke up our team and we lost out in the last few minutes. The final was Z5-I9, 3-iff?"
and the score was I8-I8 three minutes before the whistle stopped hostilities. Kutzler, Eschen
and Gernerd left via the personal route and Stroudsburg was able to score on our broken defense.
Kutzler and Royer had three field goals each, while Wolf of Stroudsburg had four. Their foul
shooting was very effective, scoring 17 points for them.
Slatington came down for our first home game and after a long rest over the Christmas vaca-
tion, we turned them back with a 25-22 slap. We were never headed at any time, the half ending,
563 I4-9, and substitutes entered the last few minutes. Edwards had four field goals for Slatington
and Royer seven for the "Konkrete Kids."

january l4th. brought us "Catty" and another victory. With football still in memory, the
26-25 defeat was a terrible burden to carry back to the iron town. "Catty" led, I4-9, at half
time, but a spurt in the third quarter evened it up for the N. H. S. five and it was 25-25 with one HFC
minute to go. Klein, the referee, called a "Catty" player for tapping the ball on a jump before llmlmll
it reached its highest point. I-le wanted to give it to Northampton as an out of bounds play. 'A "
but after debating and showing the rule book, he was finally convinced of his error and we got
the foul goal. With the score tied, Royer shot the foul and made it, the game ending very shortly.
Safe It was a loosely played game. Dougherty was high for "Catty" with four from the floor, while
M om, Miller had Six for the Black and orange. gg.
We played at Whitehall next and handed them a 27-I2 defeat. The game was exceedingly ,xii
slow and poorly played. An entire team replaced the N. H. S. five twice in the game, and this
held the score down. Miller and Royer were high with five and six field goals, respectively.

On January 28th we set ourselves to even the score with Stroudsburg. We were both tie M
for first place and this game meant top of list or next. Stroudsburg was also resolved, but the gk,-22,3
score of 33-Zl set them one peg under us. It was the fastest and best game seen on the Wolf S2153
UE! floor. Teamwork was the sole factor and both teams put upa wonderful fight. The half ended,
firm I6-l6, and the result was a toss-up. But again, Coach Hillegas imbedded that spirit in his team Qfjl
and few more talks like that will ever be heard by a team in N. H. S. It bore fruit, too, and
YQTQ blossomed into a rally which broke the tie and we coasted to a I2-point victory over the league
13445 leading team. At last, we reached the top and led the league. Miller, Royer and Newhard
had four goals apiece. A better game at guarding is hard to find and Eschen and Kutzler received JJ-,
well-earned praise. Taylor and Davies had three each from the floor for Stroudsburg.

We ended the league season by polishing off Emaus at home with a 46-20 landslide. The 7?-T317
first five played the first quarter and nearly all of the third. Thirteen men again played for Pill
Northampton and kept the scorekeepers busy. ln the first six minutes of the second half, N. H. S.
scored at the rate of two points a minute. Royer and Miller did heavy duty, getting 9 and 5 il'
field goals, respectively. Kratzer counted six times from the floor for the visitors.
Although we dropped the league pennant, we won the town title by defeating the Holy Trinity
five, 27 to 20. It was very rough and loosely played before a small crowd. We led, I9-I0, at
half time. Newhard scored I3 points for Northampton, while Thomas had 9 for Trinity.
This game finished the season, the best we had for a long while. The big league banquet will
at the Hotel Allen in Allentown, finished the season officially and needless to say, all present ifii
had a wonderful time. All the teams were represented by players and coaches and after the 5 .. Q
chicken banquet came the dance. We sincerely hope that it will be an annual affair.

The 1927 Track Season
The year l927 was Northampton High's first experience in track. A team was organized
and represented our school in three meets: the Penn Relays at Philadelphia, the P. I. A. A. Meet
at Lehigh, and the Lehigh Valley Interscholastie Track and Field Meet held at Muhlenberg.
The team was scheduled in only one event, the relay, at Philadelphia, and came out sixth ofthe
ten entries. At the Lehigh meet the team was rather unfortunate in being placed in Class A,
in competition with large high schools. The team did well under the circumstances. The
meet at Muhlenberg turned out more successfully for Northampton than the previous meets.
The team succeeded in securing two first places, two seconds, two thirds, and two fourths, netting
a total of 24lf2 points, which placed them in second places.
Each member of the track team deserves undivided credit, for in this sport success depends
upon each individual. Although handicapped by a regular track and lack of experience, North-
ampton may feel proud of its premier attempt on the track.
The boys who composed the team are as follows: Kline, Schaadt, Coble, Hawk, Rutman,
Laub, Eschen, Beers, W. Smith, Flom, Sieger, Kutzler, D. Smith and Mensinger.
The annual Field Day of the borough schools was observed on Friday, june I0th. The
affair was more elaborate than any other year, the training in track contributing largely to its
P. E. Demonstration
The Physical Education Demonstration was given on the evening of June 2nd under the
direction of Mr. Hillegas and Miss Berg. Stunts and drills by both girls and boys were inter-
esting and well received by a large audience. The appreciation of this kind of work proves that
people are realizing more and more the importance of it.

Dotter came into the limelight as a forward and a classy one, tool Verna has the "ol' fightin'
spirit" and we know she will make good in future athletic undertakings.

Mary Gougher came back as our center this year after havmg served on the varsity team 55,-gil
iffy for two years. Although her position did not give her a chance to capture individual honors,
she did much to win the game she played. Gougher indeed has that fighting spirit, especially
when her opponent is somewhat "scrappy." Mary will be back next year and we expect great
things of her on the new floor. ,
lrene Kline, our enviable side-center, has completed her first year in athletics. "Kliney"
was a sub last year, but determined to sit on the bench no longer and consequently stepped in
Him the position of side-center. "Kliney" is not a "bad shot" either and can readily be substituted
as forward. As Irene is only a junior, we look forward to the continuance of her athletic work.
Ferne Schaeffer has been a member of the team for two years and has lived up to her previously
Q, established record. Ferne at first played center, but was shifted to the guard position and
together with Miller held down the opposing forwards. Another year of good work ahead of
7 5 Ferne make it our best! 3 6'

Lovena Miller has completed four glorious years of varsity basketball. For two years "Husky"
was our center and the next two years became our plucky guard. "Husky" played the game
lllsll hard and as many forwards know it was not easy to get around her. Her position will be hard
Eliafzyj to be Filled next year, but we hope that Lovenia will continue to use her basketball ability and
EW! ecome just as much of an asset to another school as she was to us.
"Matz" Bachman was indeed a good substitute and has earned her letter by having played
LM, the required number of quarters. Christman and Keefer were the other two reserves and they
too have doneivery well. Bachman and Keefer will graduate, but we hope Christman will become
a star forwar in the two years ahead of her. 'f

Northampton High has just closed its most successful season on the diamond. The nine
won thirteen out of fifteen games played, running a close second to Lehighton for the Lehigh
Valley Interscholastic League Championship. Each member of the team merits its success as
well as the coach. We found in our team the necessary "punch" to come from behind and beat
out their opponents, so essential to victory. Northampton fans were well pleased with the
team's showing and hope for the continuance of the 1927 enviable baseball record. The team
is as follows: Pitchers, Termena, Susko and Smith: catchers, Micio and Szupperg First base, Bath:
second base, G. Gernerd and Eschen: third base, Moore and Lutteg shortstop, Royer: outfielders,

and the high school. - The local delegates, R. F. Smith Cadviserl, Willard Hahn, Frederick Fogel,
Albert Royer and Wilbur Smith, who attended the older boys' conference at Hazleton, brought

wealthiest and most active in Eastern Pennsylvania.
The officers of the club are: President, Willard Hahn: vice-president, Ray Rutmang secretaryy

of the present membership. The success of the Hi-Y club in the two and one-half years of its
existence is due to the maintaining of its great aims :-To create, maintain and extend throughout
the school and community, high standards of Christian character.
The emblem of the club is a white cross in a red triangle. 'The whitehcross represents purity
and the red triangle represents red-blooded service and growth ln body, mind and spirit.

The Art Club
This organization is in its infancy, having just been organized in the month of April. Although
it is only a young organization. the Art Club is not lacking in its ability or accomplishments, as
was shown in their work of painting the scenery for the last act of the Senior Class play. This
was the first work of its kind and was very successful.
The club is divided into three groups which include the basketry group, the sketching group,
and the cartooning group. Each member is allowed to choose the group he wishes to enter and
work with. The sketching group has already made plans to sketch familiar scenes in this locality.
Members of the cartooning group have exhibited some of their work in the school paper.
The officers of the club are: President, Edith Odenwelder: vice-president, Mary Shaffer:
secretary, Leora I-leymang treasurer, Ray Wahl. With Miss Meyers as adviser, the Art Club is
assured of a bright future.

Although our debating teams have not been exceptionally successful this year, interest in
that activity has greatly increased at N. H. S. For the Hrst time in the history of the school,
hir, our teams debated with Catasauqua. On March 24th the dual debate took place, with the Jfiw
affirmative teams traveling. The question for debate was "Resolved, that the U. S. Congress
was justified in excluding the Japanese." The affirmative team consisted of Louise Luckenbach,
David Lucks, Edgar Kline and Mary Martin as alternate, while the negative team consisted
LEU of Lovenia Miller, Roger Laub, Dorothy Mertz, with Bertha Loras as alternate.
QQ? Although the judges voted against us, both at Catasauqua and Northampton, our teams
profited by the arguments and exerience in preparing for the triangular debate, one of the annual
events of the school year. The teams entered in the debate are from Pen Argyl, Nazareth and
Northampton. The question was, "Resolved, that the Immigration Act of l924 should be revised WUI
to admit japanese immigrants on the same basis as European immigrants." The affirmative
team was composed of Lovenia. Miller, Edgar Kline, Dorothy Mertz and Leora Heyman, as
alternate. The members of the negative team which traveled to Nazareth were Louise Lucken-
3215? bach, David Lucks, Bertha Laros, with Alice Trankley as alternate.

The Nafzonal Honor Soczety
Last June, Northampton High was granted a charter by the National Honor Society, estab-
5762 lishing in the high school the Northampton chapter of the National Honor Society of secondary
" schools. lts purpose is to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render
M service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of American secondary sf
M schools. To be eligible for membership a student must have spent at least one year in the school
, in which he is elected, must have a scholarship rank in the first fourth of the class, and his mem- Y 21
bership must be based on the four things: character, scholarship, leadership and service. Not
more than fifteen per cent. of any senior or graduating class may be elected to membership. ln
H95 june, live per cent. of the juniors will be admitted and the following September, the remaining
ten per cent. This means that only seven of our seniors have the honor of being members of the gffygfii
society. They are carefully selected by the Faculty Council with due consideration of the four
requirements. The officers for the first semester were: President, Elizabeth Nagle: vice-president,
25355 Lovenia Miller: secretary, Martha Bachman: treasurer, Roger Laub. The officers for the second
semester were: President, Roger Laub: vice-president, Lovenia Miller: secretary, Elizabeth
6 is Nagle: treasurer, Elizabeth Bibighaus. img
The society meets once a month and all meetings are open. We sincerely hope that this new M
organization will continue to grow and prosper in such a way as to uphold its four principles and QV
promote its aim.

511 pictures were taken with the purpose of placing them in the book. The reason for their absence
is their failure to turn out and of course, they could not be re-taken because the particular activity
QQQA1 happened only once. However, we hope that we have impressed our readers with our record
.-lk.. of high' school activity presented in a manner that will interest our alumni and have them recall TM'
their high school days. We have entered in the book the names of our alumni as far back as
we could trace them and where they may be found with the purpose of having classes interested Q12

of future years will continue this work we think we have secured a means of increasing the sub-
H scription salesias well as circulation. We leave it to you, as readers, to say whether our motives
11 have been achieved as we would have desired them accomplished.

This year's school publication staff continued the work started by last year's staff-pub-
lishing the school news in the town paper, "The Cement News." We went a step further than
they did, in publishing our news weekly instead of every other week. Since the school news
is published in the paper its circulation has greatly increased. ln this way the townspeople
are brought in closer connection with our school affairs. The staff has tried, this year, to interest
more students in contributing material for the paper. The new staff, too, has this as one of its
aims and we hope that the students will further their interest in this work of the school paper.

W. C. KUTZ, Faculty Adviser
The Thrift Club was organized in the beginning of this school year to try
to induce the pupils to save. It seems to be the desire of some of the pupils
to be non-depositors. They think that because they are in the high school they
should not deposit. That is not the right attitude to take. The school cashiers
formed an organization and elected Howard Bath as their president. Numerous
talks have been given in chapel, but they have had little effect upon the student
body. The only class that had morethan thirty depositors was the Junior
Class. The banner throughout the term has been in the junior room.
During the year there has been keen competition between the junior girls
and boys. The girls had the banner the first semester and part of the last
semester. Recently the boys have kept the banner and there was no danger
of the girls receiving it. The freshmen shook the jinx off in the last half of the
term. They were second highest and made the juniors strive harder.
The members of the Thrift Club are: Howard Bath, president: William
Mathern, Margaret Kleppinger, Catherine Sicher, Robert Lentz, Marion Lau-
bach and Kenneth Reinert.
Some of the slogans which have been adopted are:
The freshmen are way down in the list,
The sophomores are up creeping,
The seniors are but lost in mist
While the banner's in juniors' keeping.

The Marconi Radio Club
The Radio Club was organized in November, 1924, by the present Senior
Class as a division of the physics department, which was at that time under
the supervision of Prof. F. A. Christman. The purpose of the club was to afford
the members a better opportunity along the lines of specialization and research
in the radio field. The Research Committee which often was a joint committee
of the several committees doubtless did the most constructive part of the work.
This committee under the direction of the president selected three radio sets
from which one was to be chosen by the club. The knock-down sets submitted
to the club for consideration were: a Super-Heterodyne, Browning Drake Hook-
up, and a Fada Neutrodyne. After discussing the merits of each, the Fada
Neutrodyne, which is a five tube set, was decided upon. The set was finally
completed the last week in February, l925. And on March 4th the set was
demonstrated in the auditorium to the school as a whole, when President Coolidge
broadcasted his inaugural address directly from Washington, D. C. The radio
cabinet was built by Peter Stout of the junior Class, who was later admitted
to the club as an honorary member.
The radio club owes its success to the able instructions of Prof. I. L. Sheaffer,
who is at the head of the Science Department. It was under his direction that
the set was rebuilt, thus giving the school one of the most efficient sets in the

M Buz-z-z-zl Buz-z-z-z! No, that's not the pleasant hum of the busy bees, but it means almost
the same thing. The large hand saw is just beginning one of its endless courses in sawing out
'f:fj1V,l the legs of a. table on the side of a magazine rack. This saw is one of the most valuable pieces
of machinery in the department because it saves hours of physical labor in making of furniture. II
Above the buzz of the saw we hear the bang-bang of countless hammers. No, it's not the ff,QQ,Q
wrecking-crew at work-it's the noise of the students at work, To see them at work does remind
us, though of busy bees. They are working on tables, chairs, desks, taborets, radio cabinets and
H2357 book stands. Some are at a large table staining, filling, shellacing or varnishing the products
P32223 of their labor.
ln another department, open only to juniors and seniors, we hear the cluck-cluck of the fi:
lathe. This art requires skill and practice to produce satisfactory results.
Manual training is one of the most valuable vocational courses in the school curriculum. It
not only prepares a student for a trade, but it also serves as a pastime during leisure hours.
Nothing is more interesting than to take a piece of wood, a saw, hammer and plane and try to
':ff'f'ffj fashion the wood into some useful piece of furniture.
Every student should take advantage of this training. Nothing gives them greater pleasure
than the clay of the exhibit when they know that people will come to admire the product of their lik!
skill, and that the next year they will strive to make their products still more perfect. ig!-fgii

mechanics and concrete work, occupying a large part of the lower floor of the building.

Domestic Science Department
The year l926-27 has been a very interesting and successful one for all who
have taken this course, for which Miss Seidel, the head of the department, deserves
a great deal of credit.
The sophomores' greatest work of the year, the cafeteria, was daunted
because ofbthe work going on in the basement in connection with the building
of the new Junior High School. Not to be outdone by former classes, the girls
instituted a new idea of serving a series of luncheons to the high school teachers.
According to all reports the lunches were a great success and the girls well merited
this result. The sophs also entertained their parents at a May party.
The department was again interested in the meat essay contest. The fresh-
men and sophomores together submitted thirty-Five essays to the National Live
Stock and Meat Board with the hope of keeping up the tradition, "a prize every
Besides the regular routine, the freshmen made a special study of child care,
During the course of the year the two upper classes of the department took
trips to further their study in that particular line of work. The sophomores
and freshmen visited the Freihofer Bakery in Allentown. The sophs also visited
the Howertown Dairy and the Egypt Silk Mill.
The seventh and eighth grade girls were occupied with cooking and sewing
mainly. The seventh grade girls entertained their home room teachers at break-
The Continuation School classes organized a Home Economics Club to do
special cooking, sewing, etc., for families of town. The club also took up the
study of camp-cookery. The classes of this department made clothing for the
children at the Good Shepherd Home.
In view of the fact that the Domestic Science classes will occupy new and
ultra-modern quarters in the Junior High School next year, we look forward to
brilliant and successful work.

with pride, a big step taken by our School Board, the appointment of a full Hail
sf'-1 ' hool nurse. 1:21
Since a school nurse is a new personalle to our faculty, a review of her work
ll,l,,ll will interest our readers. During the first four months of the term, a physical
examination was made of every student in our schools by the medical inspector
and school nurse. Of 1,844 pupils examined l,072 were found defective. This
is where the school nurse has her biggest task, trying to have the defects cor-
rectecl. Doing this work the nurse made 466 home visits to encourage parents
M to have their children's defects corrected. 3l6 of those defects were corrected,
llwllll which shows a big field still remaining, but a permanent and hopeful beginning.
During the following six months of the term, a diphtheria campaign was con-
ducted with 545 pupils taking the three doses of toxin-antitoxin, thus helping
in the national wide campaign to eradicate diphtheria. Nutrition classes were
organized for the children I0 per cent. or more underweight in the Hrst, second,
4,t,Qv,V'i third and fourth grades. These children were weighed weekly and the individual
charts demonstrate the success of the classes.
Home nursing classes were also conducted for the girls of the Continuation
School, giving them practical instruction in subjects relating to the health of
the individual, the home and the community. These things together with the
answering of many first aid calls, the following-up of absentees, taking cases to
clinic, and the keeping of records, fills the daily and busy life of a school nurse.

Louise Nagle, a junior of N. l-l. S., represented her school in the elimination
contest of the Philadelphia Region of the National Oratorical Contest held at
Allentown, April I9, l927. She was successful in triumphing over six rivals
from the high schools at Pen Argyl, Catasauqua, Allentown, Coaldale, Nazareth
and Allentown Preparatory School, thereby winning the right to participate
in the semi-final meeting of the Philadelphia Region at Hazleton, April 25th.
Louise was not as successful at Hazleton as she was at Allentown, but neverthe-
less we feel duly proud of her achievement in bringing signal honor to her school
and community by winning the judges, decision for first place in the contest at
Allentown. The following is a copy of Louise's own oration:
JOHN MARSHALL AND HIS CONTRIBUTION TO THE
The World War has left in its wake countless evils and hardships, but it has
also brought about certain good things and perhaps the greatest of these is the
increased interest of our citizens in the Constitution of the United States. Before
the war, very few of us gave more than a passing thought to this wonderful docu-
ment, while at present it is read and studied and discussed by persons in all
walks and stations of life. Who is there among the substantial people of our
country today, who has not given thoughtful and even prayerful consideration
to this foundation stone of our government? In seeking inspiration to guide
us in our study of, and to sustain us in our firm adherence to the constitution,
we most naturally turn to the man who more than any one else established the
constitution, who breathed life into it, who gave it power where few thought it
had power and who established rules for interpreting it that have withstood all
attacks-Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Marshall.
To him it was plain that he had come into this world with a particular work
to perform. Having been born of poor parents, his early education was meager.
He began the study of law when he was eighteen. During the next period of
his life he was greatly in demand as an attorney, a member of the Virginia
Assembly, an Executive Councilor, soldier in the Revolutionary War, delegate
to the State Convention which adopted the federal constitution, member of
Congress, envoy to France, and in l80l he was appointed Chief Justice of the
Contrary to the views of most Southern statesmen, John Marshall viewed
the nation as vastly more important than the state and that the state's rights
must be subservient to those of the nation. When the thirteen states of the
Union adopted the constitution, they reserved all rights to themselves and
granted to the United States government only such as were specifically set forth
in the constitution. Then, during the first thirty or forty years of life under
the constitution there was a continual struggle to determine to what degree the

supremacy of the National Government should extend and numerous attempts
were made to infringe upon the sovereignty of the nation. Then it was that
Marshall stood as a bulwark to defend it and to extend it even further than its
most ardent admirers had hoped. William Howard Taft has said of him:
"The Supreme Court has indicated, over and over again, through Chief
Justice Marshall, that the United States was a nation and a sovereign capable
of dealing with other nations as such, and with all the powers inferable from
If it is true, as it is, undoubtedly, that to Washington is due the birth of the
United States, then it is equally true that it is due to Marshall more than to any
other man that the nation has come safely through the trying ordeals of infantile
weakness, and has triumphantly emerged into well-developed manhood. Had
the constitution at the outset been committed to other hands it probably would
have become the instrument for establishing state sovereignty. However,
under Marshall's guidance, and his interpretation and exposition of the consti-
tution, the sentiment of nationality germinated, grew apace, and finally a vigorous
national life developed.
A person of narrower vision and smaller courage never would have done
what john Marshall did. ln his management and decision of the Marbury
versus Madison Case, Marshall's acts and words were those of a statesman of
the highest rank.
Up to the time of this famous decision no answer had been given to the
question, 'iWho shall say with fnal authority what is and what is not law through-
out this republic?" Who, in other words, shall have final authority to say
whether Congress or the President was exceeding authority or whether laws
passed by the different states were infringing upon the constitution of the United
John Marshall chose this insignificant case to be the means for delivering a
powerful opinion which decided for all time who had this final authority. Madi-
son, the Secretary of State under President jefferson, refused to deliver com-
missions to certain justices of the Peace in the District of Columbia after they
had been duly appointed and confirmed-Marbury was one of these Justices.
He tried to get the Supreme Court to compel Madison to deliver the commissions.
The question for decision was whether the Secretary of State could be compelled
by the Supreme Court to deliver commissions, in a mandamus proceeding.
In the constitutional convention there had been considerable argument as
to who should have power to negative Acts of Congress, but not a word was put
into the constitution that the Judiciary should have this final authority and now
Marshall decided that he would announce the famous principle that the Supreme
Court shall have power to declare invalid any act of Congress which, in the
opinion of the Court, offends the constitution. In his famous opinion, Marshall
I 2 I
Q . ..

announced that Madison's refusal to deliver the commission to Marbury was a
violation of Marbury's right for which there was a remedy. But he declared
that the Act of Congress of I789 authorizing the Supreme Court to issue a writ
of mandamus, was unconstitutional. Therefore, the Supreme Court could not

I-hs most memorable words, depicting the Constitution as he interpreted it

are these: The Constitution IS either a superior paramount law not to be changed F342
by legislative acts, and as such 'altertable' at the will of Congress. If the. Con-
stltutlpn is supreme than an Act of .Congress violative of it is not lawg if the
Constitution is not supreme, .then written constitutions are absurd attempts on
the part of the people to limit a power infits own nature lllimxtable. There is
absolutely no escape from the conclusion that a law repugnant to the Constl- EQ
tution is void, and that the Jucllclal as well as other departments are bound by
-ff ":f the Constitution'."
. ll my
What deep significance these words had with state courts as well as national
tribunals! For, thereafter they fearlessly applied the principle that Marshall
had announced and the supremacy of written constitutions over legislative acts
was firmly established, thus establishing the constitution as the Supreme Law
of the land.
In FCCCIHT YCHYS UUUICYOUS Changes have been made to this constitution
There have been attempts to amend it so that the ever- changing Congress might
override decisions of the Supreme .Court-thus undoing the excellent work of
John Marshall. Some of the constitutional amendments have met with hearty
approval, while others are unpopular in certain sections of the country. But .Jim
mu these amendments are now parts of the constitution and it behooves us, as
lovers .of this fundamental document, to obey them. As we give ear to heated
and misleading arguments today about the constitution, let us follow the example
of the greatest constitutionalist, let us be brave and courageous in its support,
and finally let us pray God that the principles expounded by John Marshall never
M32 shall cease to be revered.

REMEMBER SCHOOL DA YS
NVhen we grow up to be men and women, our school days will always be dear to us and remem-
bered with great joy, as will our chums and the fun we have had.
There are three very helpful things to promise Ourselves now at the beginning Of the new adven-
tures in life, First: Work hard and try to be an honor to our calling. Second: Save as much as
we can. Third: Do some kind thing for some one else each day. How proud we will be Of Our-
selves if we do.
