Text from Pages 1 - 196 of the 1948 volume:
it has otten iaeen said that there is nothing
quite so ioeautiiui as heautifui music, and
rightiy so. Yet, music is more than heauty'-I
it is a means of expression that perhaps tran-
scends ati others in universaiity.
Unfettered hy the chains of circumstance
which hind man to the puny niche he occupies
in this oid world, music is everywhere, is
ciaimed hy aii, and heiongs to none. To each,
music has a meaning ati its own. in the daric
recesses of history, the savage heat of the drum
matched the savage heat of the primitive heart.
When civiiization dawned, the chant ot the
stave tightened the hurden on his aching hack
and suppressed the nostalgia that wrenched at
his aching heart. As men,s minds broadened,
the merrie ditty of the minstrei evoked the mer-
riment of damsel and yeoman aiiice, and the
sweetiy soiemn liturgy attuned the souis of men
Today, as in the past, music lifts us to dizzy
heights of rapture, or drenches us in the dregs
oi despair. We pray with it, piay with it, sing
it and swing itg it makes us cheer or brings a
tear, we adore it and aiahor it. We find a song
in the hahiaiing hrooic, or in the rustling ot
ieavesg we teei harmony in the metaiiic ciang
ot the hammer, or in the whirr oi machinery.
Niusic is so entwined in our tives that we can-
not escape from it.
Recognizing the tremendous part of music in
the iusty, ioustiing growth of Americana, the
Northampton hoard of education. this term ex-
panded the scope of the music program offered
the student. NVith the new accent on music in
mind, it was hut naturai for the 1948 Ampten-
nian staff to note, and iater adopt, music as a
theme for this voiume.
Qnce the suiaject of the theme iaecame a cer-
tainty, came the prohiem oi interpretation. After
serious thought on the matter of appiying music
to the schooi system, as portrayed herein, it was
Found that the symphony provided the ideai
soiution. The symphony orchestra, in its pres-
ent day organization, intended harmoniously
with composition pians as they evoived, white
the music oi the masters, acknowledged hy aii
as the acme in iaeauty, tent a iiiting emheiiish-
ment to the score. Arrangement ioecame a
simpie matter. The hoard of education was
transcribed into the trustees or sponsors oi' the
modern symphony: the superintendent was
iiicened to the conductor: the principal, the con-
cert-meisterg the ciass advisors, section ieaciers,
and the teachers, musicians.
As tor the students, they hecame the sym-
phony itseit, Littie chiidren, who grow to

kindergarten, were transformed to the aiiegro

junior high schooi naturaiiy modulated into the
dainty strains ot the minuet, and the inevitahie
progression through high school and gradua-
tion, ending oniy too soon, crescendoed to the
maestoso oi the iiinaie. However, taicing iuii
advantage oi the iiherties aiiowed the com-
poser, the movements oi the symphony have
ioeen reversed so that the Senior ciass might
he enaioied to sound the grandioso heat of the
overture. Here, then, is the 1948 Amptennian.
We hope it striices a responsive chord in your

CHARLES H. BILHEIMER
In a characteristic present day pose.
in direct contrast to the symphonyys measure
upon measure and strain upon strain of heau-
tifui meiody emheiiished with fuii, rich chords,
is the simpie, iittie folic song. Passed on from
generation to generation, it increases in popu-
larity and appeai untii it more than crescendoes
the symphony in universality.
As unpretentious and unassuming as the
ioiic song, yet equaiiy as ioved and just as fa-
miiiar, is Mr. Biiheimer, who, in our opinion,
has contrihuted the outstanding meiody to this
composition. Borrowing a phrase from Mon-
trose,s "Darling Ciementinef, we can iiteraiiy
caii him a Hforty-ninerf, for he compietes his
forty-ninth year of teaching, and ali forty-nine
of them have heen spent in the service of North-
ampton, this year.
A native of the pastorai environs of neigh-
horing Aiien township, he can unquestionahiy
ciaim the honor of having given his entire life
to this vicinity for the good of aii. He has played
a dominant roie in educating at ieast three gen-
erations of youthful Northamptonians for life,
for some time ago he hegan instructing the
grandchildren of his early students. Round and
iuii has been his experience, inasmuch as he
grew up with our schools, or rather, perhaps
we should say that our schoois grew up with
him. He has not oniy taught more of our citi-
zens than any other teacher, hut he has aiso
taught more of our people to hecome citizens,
for he conducted night classes in citizenship for
immigrants over a period of some years.
It was in 1899 that, following his graduation
from Kutztown State Teachers coiiege, he first
stepped into a classroom at the Stemton school,
iater the Third ward school and forerunner of
the Franklin building. In 1904 he tooic up new

A lover of music, Mr. Billieimer made an
early acquaintance with tlais field, wimen, as a
luoy, lie studied violin, later winning a position
in tlie tiien popular Vveaversvilie orchestra. Oi

loer, playing tlie clarinet. At College lie relin-
quisiied iris violin for the gridiron, where lie

Close coworlcers and colleagues for many
years, for hoth taught in the George Wolf
elementary school, John G. Koch and Helen
Cummings retired from the teaching profession
in June ot 1947 with a combined total of 89
years in service. The tremendous iniiuence they
played on the lives of countless children can-

we recognize their achievement, aiong with

Only one day, his soie ahsence from school

conduct his ,daily music classes, during which
many were the days that the students sang his

ate of Keystone State Normal school, Kutz-
town, he came to Northampton in 1915 to he-
come principal of the new Governor George
Wolf school, still his position at retirement,
hut spent a short time at the Central school
awaiting completion of the huilding. Prior to
that he had taught at the Geryville, Buclcs

come associated with the cement industry.
Both lovers of the open road, he and Mrs.
Koch, the former Goldie Biery, are often seen

A lover of grand opera, of which Puccini's
"La Boheme" is her favorite, Miss Cummings
taught twenty of her forty-nine years in North-

she taught at Media for tive years upon gradu-

tinued her education with graduate worlc in

When seated in the concert hall, drinicing
in the celestial strains ot heautiiul harmony
which come pouring forth from strings and
hells of instruments, one never thinks ot the
symphony orchestra as heing highly organized
husiness enterprise. Yet, precisely, that is what
it is. Tours and concerts must he arranged lrom
a standpoint of financial teasiloilityg musicians,
arrangers, copyists and other employees of the
organization must he paid, and music and
other supplies and equipment must he pur-
chased and maintained.
Responsihility for all these vital Hhehind the

VVith an eye constantly tixed on progress
and the tulure, the hoard, heeding the initial
trickle of advance intormation on a coming
statewide emphasis on safety and driver edu-
cation, has already concluded details for in-
clusion ot this subject in next term's curriculum.
Among a score ot other accomplishments, the

turc educational needs.
DR. GEORGE A. EICIZILER
. Superintendent ,
The conductor of a symphony has a clual
responsibility. First of all, it is his duty,
through interpretive genius and the meclium of
his expressive baton, to thrill his audience by
ei awing the maximum of beauty out of the
musicians before him.
His other phase of responsibility, which is
just as important, if not more so, than the first,
is to carry out and aclminister the policies of
the symphony sponsors. This often calls for
assistance even in establishing policy, for the
concluctor is usually more familiar with details
than anyone else.
The administration of a school system such
as this one can, in many respects, be said to
parallel closely the difficult taslc of the sym-
phony conoluctor, anol, We find in Dr. Eichler,
a man who has been successfully and capably
shoulciering the enormous responsibilities which
the office oi superintendent entails.
Although not a musician, he is a music lover,
and is especially ioncl of the semi-classics ancl
light opera. Highly progressive, he is clecicleclly
in favor oi the 'expancleci school music program:
in fact, he is ciecicietily in favor of anything for
the benefit of the schools or the community in
general, in Whose service most of his out of
school hours are spent.
NORMAN A. LAUB
An accomplished violinist in his own right,
Mr. Lauio is iiteraiiy, as Weil as figuratively, a
concert-meister, and We find, in delving through
hack numioers oi this volume that, in his student
years here, he was First chair violinist in the
high school orchestra.
Recently, however, he has had to iay aside
his heioved instrument in assuming the re-
sponsibility for administering hoth the junior
and the senior high schoois, which iast year
began a merging process, now compiete, from
an administrative viewpoint. Young, capahie
and efficient, We find in Mr. Lauh a true con-
cert-meister, iceeniy attuned to the many sounds
and iniiuences emitted by his schools.
Ranking a ciose second to the conductor oi
a symphony in importance is the concert-meis-
ter. This individual, of necessity, must know
as much aioout the orchestra and its components
as the conductor, ior, in the aiosence oi the
maestro, he must he prepared to take up the
ioaton. in many cases he is an understudyfoi
the director. .
The concert-meister is the ieading violinist
oi the symphony orchestra, and as such, must
ioe thoroughly familiar with every whim and
gesture oi the conductors haton. He is the pivot
upon Whom the entire organization turns, for
ali other musicians depend upon his guidance
in interpreting the conductor,s desires.

Becoming an oral surgeon may he the result of Dr. Drumheiierys
short-lived study of piano during his youth. We might also con-
jecture that the avocation of his boyhood days has become the occu-
pation of today, inasmuch as while he used to play upon the ivories,
he now works on them. Modern music and the semiciassics hold equal
fascination for this courtly man, who aided not only in planning our
school dental examination program, hut is also helping to carry it
forward. Definitely partial to nature and all things rustic, the Drum-
heiiers are at home to their host of friends in Baiiietsviiie.
DR. CHARLES F. IVIORITZ
Still another devotee of the semiciassics and of music in the mod-
ern manner is Dr. Moritz, who like his colleagues, is an ardent lover
of nature. Formerly a serious student of the violin, the delicate fingers
developed in years of practice now stand him in good stead as he
deiicateiy proioes the jaws of patients to pluck moiars instead of
strings. When the winds hlow iorisk and the world turns to gold,
he forsalces his forceps for a shotgun. The same thing takes place
every springtime, for with the blossoming rehirth of nature, he is to
ioe seen upstream with rod and reel. In school he pursues our cavities
with intensity equal to his pursuit of the wily trout.

exacting worlc of the dentist within the confined space oi the human

The prelude to any symphony is what we
lilce to thinlc of as heing that kaleidoscope of
sounds coming forth when musicians are care-
fully warming up their instruments, Hsettingn
grnigouchers, or limloering up hands prior to the
performance. Slcilled liingers race madly up and
down the finger laoard, pursuing evasive melo-
dies to the accompaniment of hows vilarating
with joyful resonance. The French horns emit
their imperious calls: the grulii voice oi the laas-
soon is answered hy the deep-throated Hzumn of
the loass violg the flutes inject a pastoral noteg
the rounded tones of the clarinets trill over in-
tricate passagesg the olnoe adds a plaintive
countermelody, and the percussion roars out
intermittent thunder. A lcaleidoscope of sounds
it is, laut pleasant, nevertheless, for it portrays
the loving touch of the true musician, who thus
conscientiously, 'yet enthusiastically, prepares
for a taslc that is pleasure as well.
So it is with the senior class. For the past
eleven years they have laeen warming up for the
climax in their collective school careers. This
is a rather extended prelude, we admit, laut
valid, for what student does not loolc forward to
his or her senior year as the acme of school lite?
As we sound the overture to the symphony
of the year, we Find in retrospect, that the
prelude has produced many dominant strains
as well as chords and passages of such out-
standing laeauty that it is difficult to forget them,
even though they have long faded away.
Still haunting our memories is the ninth
grade promotion pageant, Hl"lymns of Freedomf,
the smash hit of 1945, written and produced
hy the class. Promotion Chairman lVlarilyn.
Ward delivered the address: lVlary Ann Luclc-
enhach composed the class song, and everyone
toolc part in the production. Strilcing responsive
chords too, are mllimls Christmas Faunf' which
the entire class helped to put on: the Hallowelen
party, andthe never to he forgotten farewell
Qnce in senior high, sonorous notes of oliliicial
timlare were sounded lay lVlary Krill, .loseph
Kowalchulc, Dorothy Smoliclc, and Theresa
Taras, who led the Sophomore song as class
officers, only to loe sulomerged under the over-
tones oi Ruth Feidler, Eugene Susco, Dorothy
Smoliclc, and Lillian Sclrelifler in the Junior
rluloel-Lied. Now lceynoting the Senior suite
are Andrew Shelalc, Michael Kolumlaer, Verna
Hoffman and Theresa Stuhits, who are depict-
ed in the role of lcey signatures on the page
heading this division.
Melodic strains wove patterns throughout
the senior high sonata as individuals modulated
into various fields of activity. As sophomores,
several of the girls helped to sing the ensemlole
into the state championship. As Juniors, solos
were sung hy Dorothea Zamadics, who was
crowned NDaisy lVlaeU at the Sadie Hawlcins
dance, and Theresa Stulaits, ilunior prom queen,
while Owen Unangst and lVlary Ann Luclcen-
laacll perfoimecl as a duo in lcing and queen
roles at the Mardi Gras. On the podium in the
Junior Spealcing contest were lVlarilyn Ward,
Charles Krantz, Selma Roth, Owen Unangst,
Frances Fredericlc, Nicholas Yarosevich, Ruth
Feidler, and .lerome Clauser.
Tripping the Senior scales were Andy Shelalc
and Ed Filipovits, who galloped the Konlcrete
Kids through their third straight undefeated
seasong the Sadie Hawlcins duet lay Laura lVlae
Coleman and .loe Deutsch, as nDaisy lVlaeH

DAVID S. BENNETT
ln tlie words of the musical term, einsclilalen.
It was on tlme morning of Monday, Octoluer
8, 1945, that David completed luis solo in tlne
sympllony of life and entered upon llis rest, liis
sleep diminishing into a tranquille and legato
elegy. He played his part, and played it Well.
VVe've joked and laughed Witli Davidg we've
argued with liimg we remember his carrying the
lights for the band at evening practices: We
remember liis keen interest in all scliool activi-
ties: we remember him as an intelligent, yet
lun-loving student: we rememloer luis love for
tinkering witli bicycles, airplanes, wood, and
producing unique inventions. We rememlmer
David as a lriend.
The music of tlie great Master can never be
forgotten even tlfrougli the sympliony llas ended
and the performers have gone, for it is as im-
mortal as tlie Spirit Wl1iCl'1 created it. So itis
with David. Although tlie Composer has writ-
ten tacet into l'1is score, we sllall never forget
tl'l6 lively and lilting tune David once played.

Fegely and "Phil" Rauhenhold, installed the

learn that Steve Hrinda, the great philanthro-

mines, had huilt Tom's tropical palace which
was erected in memory of our deceased class-
mate, David Bennett.
Ever since the dawn of yeartmoolc history the
class prophecy has played an indispensilole,
dominant part in the score of each. Truly ca-
pricious in nature, it is usually the result of
the composer letting down the hars oi fancy,
therehy freeing imagination to exuherantly
spar: the horizons of reality in ioeautiful, transi-

cated receptionist while the chief accountant is
none other than Alton Mann.
The reason for the selection of Cuha as the
locale for our reunion was the tact that many

in musical terms, a cadenza is an ornamental
passage introduced near the close of a song or
solo, either by the composer or played extem-
poraneousty hy the performer.
The ending of this movement of our sym-
phony is drawing near. Therefore, we feet it is
perhaps the opportune time to make provision
for a cadenza. You are the composer: and white
the music you have just been reading is still
fresh in your mind, take pen in hand and write
down your contribution to the score.
The cadenza is always played ad tihitum, or
at wilt, according to the individual interpreta-
tion of the musician. So, in your own style,
piay your own cadenza--your autograph.

Together with those of the Senior and Junior
classes, the tone sung hy the sophomores forms
a perfect triad, or three-note chord, which com-
pletes our tonic exemptitication of the high
school student body.
The least dominant note of the chord, it seems
to us that the most appropriate musical descrip-
tive term which can he applied to this class is
sotto voce, which according to the musical dic-
tionary, means softly: in a tow voice, or in an
undertone. This is particularly illustrative of
the Sophomore class, which entered Senior high
last fait quietly and unpretentiousty and has
been carrying on its academic program and its
share in activities much in the same manner.
Sotto voce we cali the sophomore note, hut
we cannot lose sight of the fact that it is the
tonic, or hasic note of the triad, for upon the
sophomore ctass our student Ioody is built. We
must, in the same vein, keep in mind that in
two more short years, the sophomores will he

With the opening strains of the minuet
movement which concerns the Junior High
schooi, our symphony ioegins to assume its form
as a full scale composition. So designated in
HA Tempof, the introduction to this volume,
this phase of our educational system is indeed
welt adapted to the title appearing on the top
of this page. X '
Considered a dainty movement, the minuet
is always in tripie rhythm, illustrating the
three-year junior high school period. Qriginaiiy
of slow tempo as a dance, it has, however, been
treated so freeiy hy composers that its tempo
now varies from the traditional speed to the
light, cheerful, and quick-moving aiiegretto.
This, too, has its counterpart in our Junior
High school, for in seventh grade, the school
annually becomes host to a new group of stu-
dents. ' Young, hesitant, and inexperienced,
these dainty youngsters garner new experiences
slowly and cautiously. In the eighth year time,
training, and experience comhine to send them
skipping lightly aiong. Vvith dignity and grow-
ing maturity added in the ninth grade, the
'junior High Seniors" portray the true, stately
tones of the minuet.
Ampiy illustrating the varied moods of the
minuet in graphic form is the photograph adorn-
ing the division page immediately preceding,
which depicts Anna Jane Schisier, instructor
in vocal music, conducting an eighth grade
music appreciation ciass from her favorite posi-
tion at the piano. Survey it carefully, and you
will find the seven students caught in full hy
the camera's eye displaying as many moods.
Added to the already numerous and varied
moods in the Junior High school this year were
several which served to accentuate the ihvaii
uahie role played hy this school since its in-
ception in 1927. First, in keeping with general
educational administrative practices as devel-
oped throughout the state, a merger oi the
junior and senior high schools into a single
unit from the standpoint of administration, loe-
gun last term, was accomplished under the
leadership of Principal Lauh. This has been a
definite advantage to tooth schools, inasmuch
as both, being erected adjacent to one another,
had in the past Ioeen utilizing the facilities of
each. in like manner the faculties of hoth
schools have heen serving the students of each
in order to carry out a tiexihie. interchangeable
program of education. Therefore, unification
of administration has served p also to solidify
the hitherto 'separate treatment of the same proh-

ing the decision on that point hy the hoard of
education. For the initial time in Junior High
history, a hand, now fully uniformed and well
rehearsed, was formed iast autumn under the
direction of instructor Leon C. Kuntz, who also
supervises the instrumental music program in
the elementary schoois. This organization,
which closely paraiieis its counterpart in senior
high, made its maiden how hefore the puhiic

Within the school a weii-rounded curricular
and activity program is carried on under the
direction of an excellent faculty as individuals
as well as a team. A tive-wire student council
is elected through the medium of school-wide
potting conducted in a manner which closely
approximates community election procedures.
one of media utilized hy the school in recogniz-
ing and accomplishing today,s primary educa-
tidnaiipurpose-the production of good citizens.
Although the academic phase of the Junior
High school is stressed more so than the activity
phase, neither the latter nor the social side of
school life are overlooked. A full ciuh and ac-
tivity program operate continuousiy throughout
the school year, and the annual HaHowe'en
parties and farewell dances are events which
linger long in the minds of the students.

THE OPENING or allegro movement of our

that is exactly the manner in which we note
them in their daily travels to and from classes.
Truly a happy, joyous allegzo is portrayed
hy these kiddies who loulolole over with antici-
pation and delight at the new experiences con-
tinually awaiting them in school. For most ol
them, the hell cannot ring early enough. Com-
of the kindergarten into the slow, measured

reality, a gradual one, even though it does not
seem so. Once adjusted to the vitally important

on which the remainder of his or her life is de-

down to the level of the fourth grade children shown per forming on them. The aloove scene, as well as that depicted
on the division page immediately preceding, are familiar sights in each elementary school.
prising our allegro movement this year is a total
kindergarten enrollment of 158 where, in ad-
dition to learning desirahle traits and attitudes,
each tot is tendered an early acquaintance with
vocal music through the school-wide program
in existence. Vocal training is carried out from
kindergarten through the twelfth grade.
The process of modulating from the allegro
cent on instrumental music talces place. Here,
through the efforts of Leon C. Kuntz, who
conducts the program, children learn not only
to read and understand notes and musical
terms hut also the fundamentals of actual mu-
sicianship. This is accomplished through in-
struction on preloand instruments, mainly sym-
phonettes, as shown loeing played on the divi-
sion page heading this section, or on straight
tiutes, depicted in the hands oi emhryo virtuosos

Little lcnown as a musical organization prior

reaching strides forward during the year. Not
hy any means the least of these was their selec-

UNTQUCHED IN preceding discussions
concerning the musicai iife of the schooi are
those opportunities for student musicians and
artists in aiiied tieids to harmonize With others
in neighhoring educationai institutions. AII of
them comprise meets, which are heid on a com-
petitive hasis on district and state ieveis.
The purpose hehind these contests is to
promote the cuiturai side of schooi iife through
competition. Therefore, each individual schooi
spends the forepart of any term in doing its
utmost to deveiop taient existing either iatentiy
or activeiy within its student hody. Upon the
arrivai of contest time, the hest is chosen to
represent the schooi in district events, Where
in turn, the hest Within the district is chosen
to enter state competition. Vxfinners at the state
iinais are designated as champions in their re-
spective fieids. The honor thus hrought to the
individuai schooi tends to develop schooi spirit
and encourage more students to greater en!
Among the contests in which Northampton
students participate actively each year are those
invoiving hand, orchestra, chorus, and the
music and forensic contests.

Masque and Minnnsinqlfer
So closely allied with music that it might
be called its twin sister is drama. Each is in-
dispensable to the other and both claim a
common heritage. There is much drama in the
presentation of any program devoted to pure
music, and vice versa, there is much music in
the performance of drama. Amply illustrating
the foregoing statement is the above title.
Masque is defined as a species of musical
drama, while the minnesinger, as a twelfth
century troubadour, was one of the lorerunners
of what we lqnow today as the acting profession.
A considerable share of the schools busy
stage is allotted to dramatic effort, with heavy
accent on the senior class play, the commence-
ment pageant, the junior spealcing contest, cle-
bates, and forums. l..ast but by no means least
are the many dramatic presentations during
weelcly assemblies by both junior and senior
high student bodies and their accompanying

Class play, in a spirited, sliilliul manner exemplifies the caption heading this picture. '

NOT TO BE OUTDONE by the seniors,
the Junior class attracted the largest audience
in many years to the 22nd annual speaking con-
test, a traditional junior function, which took
place Feloruary 26 in the auditorium.
Awarded first prizes in the contest, so close
that the judges were closeted well over a half
hour, were Catherine Kowalyshyn, who pre-
sented "The Snow Goose," and George Etch-
ler, who offered 'The Glorious Vvhitewasherf'
Dorothea Pyndus, speaking on "Mama and
the Hospital," and Barton Schlegel, whose ora-
tion was "The Land of the Free," were ac-
corded second prizes.
Likewise awarded prizes for the excellent
addresses they delivered were Robert Lentz,
"Thicker than VVater:U Grace Miller, "The
Church with an Overshot Vvheelgu Nicholas
Oranczak, MFor Whom the Bell Tolls," and
Joan Anthony, "The State of the Union."

IF 'SHAKESPEARE COULD KNOW
that the high schools of today encourage de-
hating he would he appalled, for the old Eng-
lish masters spoice of debating in the sense of
a tight or quarrel. In fact, Mr. Shakespeare once
talked of men "debating with the sword." A
debate stiii contains the theory of persuasion,
hut instead of swords or fists the weapons are
facts, logic, seii-control, and alertness. Par-
ticipation in dehate calls for dramatic ahiiity
along with excellent judgment. The dehater
must he ahle to express his ideas clearly and
systematically: he must he ahie to detect false
and inconsistent reasoning. As with acting, a
dehate must he interesting: the voice weii mod-

Arculo und Pizzicuto
A noble musical heritage is that claimed by
Northampton. lndeed, the love for music pos-
sessed by residents ol the community is inherent
in that it has been cultivated and handed down
from generation to generation until it is now
second nature to most.
Without a doubt the greatest individual
musical possession in the community is the Haff
quartet of stringed instruments, collected by
the late Dr. Charles A. Haiti. A man who must
be adjudged truly great by many standards,
for he was not only a great surgeon, but also
the founder of Northamptonis hospital, a
scholar, philanthropist, and friendly philoso-
pher, as well as an accomplished musician, it is
only natu'al that he turned to music as a means
of expression, one channel of which resulted
in the gathering ol several ol the worldys finest
Still further proof ol: his true greatness is the
fact that the instruments were not garnered to
become showpieces, but to be shared with
humanity, inasmuch as he, in addition to pro-
curing some of the best instruments made by the
masters, also gathered the best musicians of the
area to play them. Thus was the Hail: String
quaitet born, and many were the occasions
where music lovers were able to thrill to the
superb tones ol superb instruments in the hands
of superb musicians. Une ol' these was Dr. Hail:
himself, for, being especially fond of the viola,
he was regularly seen in the ensemble playing
his beloved instrument.
This collection, then, is the subject of the
division page devoted to the community, im-
mediately preceding. Shown displaying the in-
struments is Dr. Donald VV. Halif, son of the
elder doctor, who is following in his latherss
The instrument held by Dr. Haff is a violin
made by Antonius Stradivarius in Cremona,
Italy, in the year 1699. Known as the celebrated
ulaatont Stradf, it was named after Charles
Phillipe Lafont, a Frenchman, who was solo
violinist to the Emperor of Russia in 1808 and
played llirst violin for Louis XVIII in 1815.
Lafont performed on this instrument in a com-
petitive concert with his friend, Paganini, and
was so gratified with his success that he used
it during his entire lifetime and had his name
inscribed in it.
,A..-.Lh......-, ... . A.. --
Also a product of the great master, the violin
shown to the immediate right ol Dr. Hallf was
made by Antonius Stradivarius in Cremona,
Italy, in 1700. This violin is known as the
HRussian Stradf, and was selected by Leopold
Auer, of Russia, for his famous pupil. Margaret
Berson, later a refugee who escaped to England
by way of Siberia.
It is an undisputed fact that Antonius Stradi-
various was the most illustrious violin malcer
of all time. These two Strads, typical examples
of the grand masterys golden period, were made
one year apart and are peculiarly similar in
tone and appearance. Both show well preserved
wood and golden brown varnish. Both likewise
overflow with lite, producing magnificent
strength, brilliancy, and carrying power.
Shown on the lar right is the viola, made by
Peregrino Michelis Di Zanetto in Brescia, ltaly,
during the year 1540. It is difficult to imagine a
more finely preserved specimen ol the very
earliest period of Italian violin malcing than this.
No doubt Gasparo de Salo derived his ideas
and inspirations from Zanetto. William E. Hill,
of London, bought this instrument from N. F.
Vuillaume, Brussels, in 1875 and sold it to
Colonel Sandys, tor many years a member ot
British parliament. It was exhibited in the
South Kensington exhibition of 1855 and at the
Loan exhibition of the Musicians company in
1909. This viola is unusually large, accounting
for its peculiar tambour, lcnown as ucathedral
Standing in the foreground is the violincello,
made by David Techler in Rome in 171 1. Leon-
ard Rose, solo ,cellist with the New Yorlc Phil-
harmonic, used this instrument in all his solo
worlc for seven years. Exquisite in wood, design,
worlcmanship, it is a perfect marvel of the mas-
ter,s creation. The tone is sonorous, pentrating,
and most pleasing in quality.
Northampton in the past has been the pos-
sessor of many line musical organizations rang-
ing lrom symphonies to bands. Of these, the
most outstanding is undoubtedly the Stemton
band. Organized in 1880, this aggregation was
among the llinest in the Lehigh Valley and re-
mained active until the start of the war. Much
ol its lame was due to the last conductor, Harry
R. Newhard, now director of the high school
