Y L YMPHUNY PUB 50 HE!-XHTSTHINHS TEMPU 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 to God. 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 P11906 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 schooi age so quicidy and merriiy skip oiii to kindergarten, were transformed to the aiiegro movementg the iong, measured, eiementary period ioecame andanteg ioiossoming youth in 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 heart. rranqemcnt ll Lihitum Responstbie for composing and scoring the 1948 Amptennian is the statt shown in the study in harmony atnove.

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.

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.

The musical term, Da Capo, which captions this page, has a meaning that infers, when seen on a musical composition, a return to the beginning. Having come to the Da Capo sign, therefore, we turn haclc the pages of time to note the 89-year song of service sung hy a duo of he- loved educators and to pay tribute to them. 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- not he ignored. Rather, it is with a thrill of respect and admiration, deep within us, that we recognize their achievement, aiong with the grateful townsfolic who gathered together last Decemher to honor them at a puhiic testi- monial dinner.

Both lovers of the open road, he and Mrs. Koch, the former Goldie Biery, are often seen taking in the heauty of the Keystone state. 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- ampton. A veteran of a yearis teaching prior to attending Millersville State Teachers college, she taught at Media for tive years upon gradu- ation. Then came a year at Siegfried, now a part of Northampton, and twenty-four years at Cementon hefore her stay at Northampton, where she taught first to third grades in the Washington and Vvoif huildings.

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 scenesy' details rests in the hands of the sym- phony sponsors, or hoard of trustees, and it is to this ioody that we lilcen the hoard oi educa- tion. These are the men, then, who are charged with the Financial solvency of the school dis- trict, the purchase, repair and maintenance ol supplies and equipment, and with estahlishing not only the policies within the schools them- selves, lout also with relation to the school and the community. ' These are also the men, who, realizing the tremendous universal influence of music, lent it their support hy providing for a program ol instrumental training which reaches down to the iourth grade, supplementing the vocal pro- gram heginning in the kindergarten, elztective this year. 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 directorate is in the mild-planning stage of a longarange program designed to anticipate tu- turc educational needs. Page 15 V r Ennllulztnr 1 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 Page 10 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. .. ,nr Enncerl-Meister 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. Principal . 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.

KLEPPINGER We lcnow that the stirring music ol the marching hand holds a special appeal for Mr. Kleppinger, whose tall, erect figure and inherent sense of rhythm made him a natural selection for the position of clrum major at college. Vvhile he is not directly associatecl with music as a fine art, he is literally ancl figuratively art itself, for he teaches art all over the school system, from seniors to lcinclergarten. No stranger to the crafts which are the normal loy-proclucts ol art, he is an expert on the loom, and in proclucing ceramics, looth jewelry ancl pottery. Spare hours at home prove to loe a Uhusmanls holiclayu for lVlr. Kleppinger, who spencls practically all his own time on some form ol art, including painting and malcing ceramics. HOWARD W.

Also, while in school, the fine coorclination he utilized on the saxophone was clemon- stratecl in an outstancling manner lay the way he usecl heacl, hancls and feet on the loaslcetlaall court. Still a devotee of the laaslietlaall court, he now employs his powers of coordination in an official Ca- pacity. Lilcewise a howling enthusiast, rolling strilces give him no time to spare for his once meloclious saxophone. Vmzatinnal Arts , HARRY G. REIFF Tall and slender, like the instrument on which he once expertly performed, is Mr. Reiilt, our genial wood shop instructor and past master of the tromhone. Deeply appreciative of all types of music, he was formerly very active in Lehigh Valley musical circles. ln recent years, the heautiful tones which emanated from his tromhone in the past have been transformed to the production of beautiful oh- jects in the woodshop, while the hands which once slid ahout his instrument so nimhly have now hecome inlc stained. A printer of no mean ability, Mr. Reillt occupies his spare time hy operating his own printing lousiness, one of the few in the community. Nursing Staff LOTTIE A MOYER LESTER R.

Here, among lathes, soldering irons, automotive engines and electrical circuits, he specializes in developing skills in the hands of both hoys and girlsg for this year he also instructs a class of the fair sex. Combining husiness with pleasure, we find he lilcewise pursues metalworlc as one of his three outstanding hohhies. The other two are fishing, and raising flowers, which are on display in the Yeager yard throughout spring, summer, and autumn. Dehnitely partial to music, hut having the benefit of only a smat- tering of training in her youth, Miss Moyer, Whose favorite is choral music, augmented her lcnowledge in this field hy singing on her church choir for many years.

He claims no favorite selection, hut we suspect that the soft whir of his drill hums a subdued, yet powerful song that has for him a tremendous. irresistihie force. In planning and initiating our dental examination program, he played an integral part as he continues to do in the ex- pansion of its scope. As an addict of the great out of doors, he has still severai additional passions-traveling and all angles of fishing, including tying his own Hies. Page ll e n I al 5 t af f DR. WALLACE G. DRUIVIHELLER 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. Dental Staff Lnnchenn Staff DR. CHARLES F. SIEGER Formerly an accomplished musician in his own right, Dr. Sieger I is definitely partial to this form of artistic expression and enjoys all types. Long unused is the saxophone on which he once performed so proficiently. However, the agility of hand he developed in the study of his instrument has lent itself admirably to the pursuit of the dental profession, his chosen calling, enahling him to carry on with ease the exacting worlc of the dentist within the confined space oi the human mouth. While his slcilled hands, lilce those of his associates, are used to enhance our school dental health program, this, with his practice, is not the total extent of their activity, for after hours they hecome instruments of creativeness in art and modeling.

Frye of the luncheon room statifg to her and her colleague falls the responsihility of producing well-prepared, well- halancecl, and nutritious meals daily for considerahly over two hun- dred hungry students. ln the lcitchen her cheerfulness and willing dis- position are ever infectious sources of good humor among student assistants, and her Cooking is as positive as her personality. Though she possesses no musical training, she is an ardent listener of all types. Cn the outside iheiis an active church worlcer, enjoys sewing and the household arts. HELEN C. RINKER At least a fifty per cent share for the tremendous success of the luncheon program this year is due iVlrs. Rinlcer, truly a virtuoso in concocting foods. Together with her coworlcer she is responsihle for the hest advertisement our luncheon program could ever hope for-the waiting of exquisitely appetizing odors ahout the corridors just heiore meal time. The lolazing hearth, the pleasant, undulating tone that accompanies simmering, the merry clattering of dishes,-all these sing an irresistihle song for her. At home she lilces nothing hetter than a husmanls holiday in the lcitchen. Vvhen all's said and done though. she is partial to all conventional types of musicg and it is our guess if her hushand, a well lcnown tenor, is any criterion, she is more than partial to vocal music. Page 33 . ., , 5 L.. Maintenance IRVIN F. DEIBERT Quiet and efficient, lVlr. Deiloert is rarely to he seen, lout the results of his handiworlc are numerous and ever present-they spealc lor him. The sulodued harmony which he creates has made him an invaluable memloer of our staff, even though he has heen with us only a compara- tively short while. Active in religious endeavor, he has served on his church hoard for a numher of years, and anything for the henetit ol the ,community is certain to enlist his support. Not a musician him- self, he nevertheless is deeply interested in music. ln his moments of spare timehe is usually to he found indulging in the creative art of woodworlcing. Page 34 Enstullial Staff CHARLES s. Mcciur When things go wrong, as they do sometimes, and a discord jars the smoothly tlowing melody ol the school system, the person in- varialaly called to the rescue is lVlr. lVlcGill. A master artisan and craftsman, he is equally at home no matter whether the exigency ol the taslc demands a plumher, Carpenter, or repairman, and many a time the cheery clang of his hammer has heen a hit performance. While he possesses no musical training, he enjoys relaxing hy his radio. We suspect though, that his lavorite tunes are those created hy the familiar clattering of his tools. Faitlilul and conscientious, We have come to talce for granted that any joh done hy him is de- pendalole.

KOLUMBIER Vice Presiaienf , A KEY IJTE 1 4 Prelude 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 Page 38 dance. 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 and "Lil Alonergn the hitting oi an all-time high lay the cast oi "Ring Around Elizaloethf' which paclced the house two nights for the liirst time in 17 yearsg last .lanuaryls dainty Senior nsnowloall l'lop,U and the dominant commencement pageant, which sings its own song on a theme identical to this'-musici The prelude has ended: the conductor raises his haton'-on to the overturel Einschlafun DAVID S.

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. 4 Page 39 I UELINE C.

Looking aileaci, To the days before us: Leaving others here instead, Vviliie we join iiie's chorus.. t Page 79 Fantasia The title which adorns the top oi this page is in our estimation a fitting illustration of the following passages. Musicaliy, a fantasie is a capriceg a species of music in which the composer yields to his imagination and gives tree scope to his ideas without regard to restrictions in form. Rhetor- icaity speaking, the term iantasie conveys a similar impression. The direct relationship which the caption of this selection enjoys with the suhject oi the composition, can therefore he readily understood upon revealing that it concerns the class prophecy. Class it is the year 1958. The class oi 1948 is hold- ing its decennial reunion at Tom uBrennemanv 0plinger's restaurant in Havana, Cuiaa. All the chefs, under the direction of Master Chef John Ressier, are iussily preparing the enormous amounts of delicacies for the hang quet. Consultect frequently hy the master chef are the famed caterer, Stephen Celcot, and his assistants: Eleanor Smith, Nancy Arnold, June Mishico, Virginia Moll, Jean Borger, and Al- thea McRell who prepared the menus for the great event. To our astonishment we find that the build- ing in which we are sitting was designed by Paul Mackey, the loriliiant young architect, and built hy the Agioli Stranzlzconstruction con! pany while the interior was decorated under the supervision of Bruce imhody. installation oi the plumbing was handled hy Franic Saurer and Richard Meyers. Our old pals, Freddie Fegely and "Phil" Rauhenhold, installed the electrical equipment. Most amazing of all we learn that Steve Hrinda, the great philanthro- pist and owner of the South African diamond mines, had huilt Tom's tropical palace which was erected in memory of our deceased class- mate, David Bennett. Page 80 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- tory flight. So it is with the iantasie we otier you below. Liice all class prophecies it emhodies the ethereal realms oi colorful imagination as horn in the minds of Marilyn Ward and Mary Ann Luci:- enloach, its composers. May you, as we did, cap- ture its soaring spirit as you follow its strains. Prnphel: Handling the complex husiness details of Tomls restaurant is a very efficient group of secretaries supervised hy Theresa Pail. Among her associates are Jeanette Anthony, Irene Benlco, Janet Fogel, Lillian Schettler, Dolores Mensinger, Eleanor Ruch, and Theresa Yura- sits. Dolores Moser is the suave and sophisti- 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 oi our classmates found their way to this trop- ical mecca where they reside and carry on their varied occupations.

Eadenza 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.

Simiiariy, interiudes are strains which accom- pany and are subordinate to the main composi- tion, which is, oi course, symhoiicai oi the senior ciass. The giris ensemioie, during an informal rehearsal on the preceding page, iiiustrates the transition from one ciass to another, inasmuch as ali are represented in the group.

Further emloellishing their alreacly harmon- ious score is the activity ol the Juniors in all phases ol school lile. ln sports, we find Juniors talcing their places in the lineup or as cheer- leadersg in music, they are responsible lor a large portion of the loandls instrumentation and the voices in the chorus, while socially, the strains ol a dreamy waltz never lail to lxring them onto the gym lloor in rhythmic accom- paniment.

Page 87 S itu 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 IIE 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 singing the dominant, melodic note of the Seniors.

Fully aware of the import of the word, we introduce to you our understudies, the Sopho- rnores. Modestty and unassumingty they came to us last September after relinquishing the first chair positions they had won in junior high by virtue Page 88 of ahitity, hard work, and length of service, to join a larger and more complex organization which varied tooth in temperament and move- ment. Just as modestly and unassumingty as they Snplmmnre Class fContinued from preceding page, arrived, we see them adequately filling the void left hy their predecessors moved higher on the scale. Although they have lost the first chair posi- tions they previously enjoyed, the sophomores are earnestly understuclying more difficult scores toward the time when they will hold similar positions on a higher level. Already showing strong evidence that they possess the qualities of which leaders are made through the remarlcalyle advances they have achieved in many phases of school life. we llincl the sophomores turning transition to advantage loy learning the Finer divisions of tone, the ahil- ity to distinguish hetween fair and good, and developing the slcill to interpret their scores and acquiring the values of timing and harmony.

Page SQ I MIQIUDP H MINUET 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 Page Q2 inuet 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- tems. Secondly, the Junior High school this year registered a new Hfirstn through the impetus lent the entire systemfs music program follow- 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 at a program presented in the auditorium some-, where ahout midterm, and since has heen pro- viding incidentai music at every school assem- hiy session, not to mention its outstanding per- formance in the first annuai music festival held in April. 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.

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- and nrlante of the kindergarten into the slow, measured andante ol the elementary progression is, in reality, a gradual one, even though it does not seem so. Once adjusted to the vitally important andante, however, each child hegins the slow, careful exploration and expansion of mental processes and the development of fundamentals on which the remainder of his or her life is de- pendent. It is in the fourth passage of this graduated movement that the wise action of the hoard of education talces form, for at this point the ac- Petit Pastnrial Prelnand instruments like these straight flutes are utilized hy lnstructor Leon C. Kuntz in hringing instrumental music 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 Page 98 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- ' r sion page heading this section, or on straight tiutes, depicted in the hands oi emhryo virtuosos on the opposite page. Foiiowing the mastery of these, conventional instruments of ati types may he procured on a Ioan or rentai hasis from the schooi district, with instruction continuing on the same hasis.

Going modern, the hand ient indirect emphasis to the 'igood neighhor policyu in its presenta- tion of "South of the Riof, not to mention an ellfervescent arrangement of the iiiting uNar- cissusu in the latest harmonic fashion. One of the hardest Working organizations in the school as weii as one of its hest advertise- ments, the hand is one of a very few groups which does not cease functioning at the end of the school year. Continuing throughout the summer, it offers concerts during the supervised play season on iocai playgrounds, as Weii as heing featured in an all day combined concert and picnic at Dorney paric.

A DECIDED HIT was registered at the music festival hy the Junior High school girls chorus with their presentation of mlihe Dan- cersf' "The Token," and the old Swedish folic song uBux0m .Lassiesfy Little lcnown as a musical organization prior to the current term, the junior chorus made far- reaching strides forward during the year. Not hy any means the least of these was their selec- tion. the Swiss folic song "Carol of the Shep- herdsf' which they featured in the Christmas vesper service. Directed loy Anna Jane Schis- ler, this group consists of approximately 55 voices, as shown in the picture helow. PARALLELING THE junior chorus on a higher level is the Senior Girls chorus. Also comprising some fifty-odd voices, the group during the past term undertook a serious pursuit of three-part music. Directed hy Anna Jane Schisler, they sang H0 Nightingale, Awalcef, and "Shepherds Christmas Songf, looth old Swiss folic songs, hefore a rapt audience at the Christmas vespers. Music organizations. The chorus performed superbly in singing the spiritual, "Rise Up, Shepherds and Fol- low,H at the Christmas vesper service. Equally as well received were Hslcip to My Loun and URecessional,H hoth presented at the spring music festival. GRACE NGTES which emhellished the general musical program during the year in- cluded those efforts hy individuals and groups, effected mainly in assemhiy programs, which in our opinion are worthy of mention as en- Trehle Tune s Treble tones are sung loy the Junior High school girls chorus t 0 the piano accompaniment of their director, Anne Jane Schisler.

JGINING FORCES, more or less, to form the mixed chorus were the personnel of the girls and hoys' choruses. ln this group, under the direction of Helen Newhard and accom- panied hy Anna Jane Schisler, musical knowl- edge acquired in either one of the two smaller organizations was utilized to good advantage and expanded. Four-part harmony was stressed, therehy enahling hoth girls and boys to broaden their musical experience from the less complex harmonies employed in the smaller hancing the suhject which is the theme of this hoolc. Among these were the girls' trio, composed oi Jane Hawlc, Ruth Feidler, and Charlotte Heller, whose surprise performance turned out pleasantly and heautifuliy. Qn the male side of the score was the Hijloradora Barbershop Quartetf, composed of Stanley Dech, Richard Demlco, Jay Smith, and Kenneth Beers, who carried all hack to the gay 90,s and the NFoun- tain in the Parlif, Also never to he forgotten was the time when the new grand piano arrived and was nintroducedn to the student ioody hy the faculty memhers who played on it. Among these were Rohert Snyder, Leon Kuntz, Anna Jane Schisler, Elizabeth Miklus, and Mrs. Jennie Smith.

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! deavor. Among the contests in which Northampton students participate actively each year are those invoiving hand, orchestra, chorus, and the music and forensic contests.

All were then introduced to Gordon Berger, guest conductor, loy Lewis Howells, Whitehall director of music, who was host, and rehearsals hegan. Mr. Berger, who is haritone soloist with the Fred Waring ensemhle, revealed a most pleasing personality and an exceptional knowl- edge of music as well as its interpretation. At the concert clear, ringing hallelujahs, and jigs and dance tunes which set everyone's feet tap- ping vvere climaxed hy the heautiful and in- spirational finale, in which the one hundred fifty-four voices poured forth their utmost in the Vvaring arrangement of uBattle Hymn of the Repuhlicn under the spell of Berger's ex- pressive hands.

Page 111 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 rehearsals. Ballet Bravura All eyes focus on Selma Roth fseated, third from lefty, whose portrayal of the leading role in HRing Around Elizabethf, Senior Class play, in a spirited, sliilliul manner exemplifies the caption heading this picture.

The tirst school production to run two nights in the above time, patrons jammed the house both nights, many of them twice, to witness what was easily the most outstanding acting by a high school cast in many a year. Setting the pace throughout the production was Selma Roth, whose stellar performance in Page 112 A the title role equalled that of the best profes- sional acting.

In fact, Mr. Shakespeare once talked of men "debating with the sword."

WILLIAM OSLER once said, UNO man is reaiiy safe or happy Without a hohhy, and it makes precious iittie difference what the outside interest may hes-anything wiii do so long as he straddies a hohhy and rides it hardf' Any man, Whether he is famous or a nonentity, wiii he a more interesting person with a hohhy. There are countless hohhies-some indoors, some outdoors, some expensive, some inex- pensive. Aii of them, regardiess of cost or iocaie, faii into four naturai groups: doing things fiishing, hoating, etc.i, coiiecting things fstamps, hooks, etcj, making things fwood- carving, painting, etc.J, and studying or iearn- ing ahout things fastronomy, etcj. Most of the hohhy ciuhs fail into the third category, that of making things, although aii four forms are evidenced. ONE OF THE LATEST hobby groups in our school is the Modei Aviation ciuh, which is concerned with making modei airpianes. During informai meetings the hoys oi the ciuh discussed design and made a study of huiiding planes. This was mereiy a preliminary to the next joh, that of cutting the haisa exactiy so that each part fit together perfectly. After the pieces were cut accurately came the intricate joh of assemhiy.

JUST AS THE. success of a musical organ- ization depends upon each and every member, so it is with sports of all types. Harmony and rhythm, emheiiished with smooth and fast Howing tones, again predominated strongly to result in the 1947 football season repeating the performance of that previous, giving Coach Al Erdosy's Konkrete Kids a well-deserved, unde- feated league season for the third consecutive year. Backing this."sport of sportsn solidly were the hand with its hrisk and snappy marches, the cheer leaders'-fpeppy, vivacious, and tire- less-and last hut not least, the sideline rooters whose hard and spirited cheering often resulted in many hoarse Voices'-for no voices at ali. For theiiopener of the season the Kids again tackled Philiipshurg, strong class A team, in a non-:eague match under the lights and lost a heartioreaker. Though the lads were edged from the victor's end 7 to 6, their superb per- formance wiii linger in the memory of the 90001 fans. The offensive power was due to the hard running of Fiiipovits and Wolf, who kept Phil- lipshurg on the Worrying side' throughout the game. The standout defensive play was con- Pczge 130 tributed hy Ends Yapie and Graioarits in the line. In the second game of the season, their first league match, Northampton easily overpowered Emmaus to the tune of 47-0 hy putting on a dazzling display of long runs, accredited to Lou Wolf. The unexpected occurred when Co-captain Andy Sheiak slashed through the line, hiocked an Emmaus punt, scooped up the hall, and ran 50 yards to paydirt. Defensive halfhacks Dick Phillips and Paul Struss time after time dumped Emmaus hacks with vicious tackles, preventing them from making gains. Tackling Vvhitehaii next, the Konkrete Kids football juggernaut was stalled temporarily in the initial period, hut started eating up yard- age throughout the rest of the game. The out- standing gridiron piaying of Ed Fiiipovits and his terrific offensive punch staiemated Vvhite- hall. Many a time two or three "Would-he tackiersn hanging on his hack failed to hring him down. Matching the driving force of Fil- ipovits was "Lil Joe" Gerenscer, who displayed his shitty and deceptive running hy outvvitting the Whitehall defense. fcontinuecl on next page, Fuqa Yaple eludes a Catasauqua hack to successfully complete a pass. Sports The superiority of a smooth-running, hard- hitting, and powerful team was amply clem- onstrated hy Northampton hy howling 'over Slatington, their fourth opponent, hy a score of 65-0. Big holes were continually opened by the slaughtering loloclcs of "Big Ed" Gall, while Niclc Yarosevich, outmaneuvering the defense with his speed, whislced hy into the secondary and was rewarded by carrying the hall across the finish line four times.

Qverwhetming Pen Argyt to the tune ot 21 to 6, the Kids that afternoon supplied the answer as to which was the stronger. Susco and Graharits again excelled in their aggres- siveness on defense white Guards Rosas' and Reimer did repeat performances on accurate down-the-field htoctcing. With the crushing of Stroudsburg High the Kontcrete Kids annexed the Lehigh Valley league titte for their third year straight. Al- though the mud and driving rain in which l r Plc its I 'Y-fr 'i.: they played seemed to stow up the gears in the Northampton power machine somewhat, they emerged 27-7 victors. A demonstration of some mighty fine down-the-field htocicing was given the fans hy Hshatters' Benetstcy. Susco and Resster, Hmud-clad granite htocicsf, halted every Pocono advance.

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 instruments. 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 footsteps. 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. Page150 ,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 tonef, 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 band. - -g. - - - - - - - -g. - -g.g. - - -g.g.g.g.g.g. .g.g.g. ..g..Q-Q 1 THE ROTARY CLUB OF NORTHAMPTON QOTAPP. 1' T Q Cl Dx ORGANIZED l926 L CLUB NUMBER, me XO fb 1 INCORPORATED l935 MEETINGS ON TUESDAY AT 6:00 NORTHAMPTON, PEN To the Class ot 19448 am. - ALLEN HOUSE NSYLVANIA Ttiese are trouiaiecl times! with twelve years of preparation tseliinci. you, we extenzi. to you a corctiai tianciciasp anct an invitation to siuarc in this generations most important task' preservation ot democracy.
