FOREWORD A school term begins, and there are classes. A yearbook staff meets, and the tale unfolds of a typical school year in a typi- cally American Town, Northampton. Like one big happy family 1,312 stu- dents are fused in the task of learning to be good American citizens. Like a big happy family one hundred and seventy seniors cope with present problems, glow with dreams of the future, and fondly remember the past. Yes, this is our story as the process of enlightenment moves slowly but surely to prepare us for the World of tomorrow. Then before we are aware of it- Graduation arrives, and there are diplo- mas.

THE TORCH With the discovery of fire "lVlr. Savagen found that he could carry heat, fight off wild beasts, and brighten his dismal cave. The torch was truly manls earliest means of bringing light into a dark, un- civilized world. Perhaps that is why it has always remained a cherished symbol of human progress. It is the basic step in man's search for light. BEACON Page 5 Page 17 Page 47 Page 67 Page 93 Page 121 Page 139 He Held High the Light of Learning lra li. Slieatter, BS.

Little did anyone dream, and least of all Miss Lfbttie Moyer, that th's innocent pnreliase would result in one of the finest light eulleetions in Peinisylvaniti. Tlirilletl with her tiny pun-hase, Miss Moyer hegan a serious study of antiques, visited more aut-tinns, and traveled extensively in search ot' new lights. By 15046 Miss Moyer became the first uf seven l'4'nnsylvanians to be l'lIlIl0I'Cd with nieinhership in the fainnus Rush Light Society where eligi- bility is ileterinined by the size nt' 1-ftlleetion, lee, ture exnerieiu-e, and research work.

Our School Board members serve the communi- ty well as they efficiently focus their individual attention on our school problems. They are con- cerned with directing our learning, formulating educational policies, and searching for new ways to improve our schools. They give unstintingly of their time to the seri- ous business of education. This year has been par-- ticularly important as tentative plans for a new senior high school slowly hut surely became a wonderful reality-thanks to these men of fore- sight. George A. Eichler A.B., lVI.A., Ed.D, Superintendent of Schools Page 6 An outstanding twenty -four year service record puts Dr. Eichler tops on the Wh0's Who list of educators in Northampton and in the Keystone State.

A "Note" of Thanks Forty-two years ago a young girl with a diploma under her arm and a dream in her eyes left Kutzmwn State Teachers' Col- lege and came home to teach. Certainly Mrs. Helen Newhard Smith needs no introduction to the people of Northampton. For fo ty two years she served her community well. From 1931 to 1954 we knew Mrs. Smith as su- pervisor of music in our elemen- tary schools. There was always a welcome light in the child1'e11's eyes when "Miss Newhardn came to sing. We have pleasant memories of those gay operettas.

Dr. Eichler and our teachers honor Mr. McGill at the last faculty meeting. G'lVlr. McGill retiring? What shall we do without him?', Those were our thoughts when we learned that our 'cMr. Fixitw was leaving N.A.,l.H.S. after twenty-three years of faithful service. Mr. McGill joined our custodial staff in V332 and soon became head mainten- ance man, a position which he held until his retirement this past June. Whether the problems were electrical or plumbing, stage scenery or stub- born curtains, dCharlie" could solve them with a smile. We shall miss you, Mr. McGill. May the years ahead bring you health, happiness, and jobs to keep you busy. From the raising of the flag to the banking of the boilers, these are the men who make life comfortable and ship shape for us. Our cus- todial men are truly the unsung heroes of the school.

Seniors Going Classical l fi fi p The Classical Lamp Coming into existence during the Golden Age in Ancient Greece was this saucer type class- ical lamp used by rich and poor alike. These lamps were made most- ly from clay, glazed or unglazed. They varied in size from tiny night lights to large, ornately decorated lamps. Olive oil was used as the principal fuel and was ignited by iron flint. A 'Golden Age in culture was born in the light of the classical lamp.

However, on a fine October day a fire drill is an excellent excuse for a leisurely stroll back to classes. X J T llllll W The Rush Light Medieval Europe basked in the glow of the Rush Light. This slender holder with its burning rush was introduced to our shores by the earliest pioneers. The holders had to be forged out of iron or carved out of wood. Then the rushes were gathered in wet places, dried, and dipped into grease. Later they were placed in a slanting position in the holder and were lighted by flint and steel 'istrike-a-lights." They burned very rapidly and emitted a pungent odor.

Hurricane Hazel and chemis- try keep us in the dark. , A fi R., Q A 1 The Candle In colonial America winter was candle-dipping time in every home. Candles for every day use were formed by dipping wicks of cotton again and again into tallow. There were beauti- fully molded candles, prize posessions in every household. Later there were patent candles of stearine, paraffin, and wax. The candle holders, whether prioket, socket, or taper style, were highly varied in design. Many were equipped with snuff- ers or pincers. The tinder box and sulphur splints supplied the light. The candle became the symbol of burning love towards Christ on Candlemass Day, February 2, which is still marked on Church calendars today.

Precision is the key word as these students develop skill, form, and muscular coordination in their performances on the tram- poline and the parallel bars. In addition the girls, directed by Mrs. Helen Wanisko, develop grace and ease in mastering difficult routines in tumbling and interpretive dancing. Mr. Albert Erdosy teaches the boys the funda- mental techniques in performing with agility on the gym apparatus or in building pyramids. Both teams constantly have one goal in mind -to give a stellar performance in the May Gym Exhibition. 7 Jack Lucky.

The battling Konkrete Kids, unfortunately suf- fering a season of injuries and senior losses through graduation, dazzled their way to second place in the league with a record of 6-2-1. For the first time in 19 years the Black and Orange Champs lost their first game to the Whitehall Zephyrs. As it was, the Lehigh Valley championship was missed by only one point. Northampton at Phillipsburg The Black and Orange raised the curtain for the 754- season against a veteran laden Phillips burg eleven. The Konkrete Kids, outclassed but not outfought, never quite got rolling. De Garo- lomo led the P'burg defensive as they stopped the Kids cold, play after play. Snyder, Barba- dorn, and Opdyhe shared the scoring honors as the Garnet rolled to a 19-0 victory. Emmaus at Northampton 2500 fans stared in misbelief as a sharp Em- maus team, affected by the 90" heat as we were, pinned a 13-13 tie on the Konkrete Kids at Wolfe Field. The Green Hornets took a 6-0 lead but N.H.S., defending Lehigh Valley League champs, came to life on a pass play from Hoff- man to Gassler. Rich Chaback bolted over from the 3 yard line. Shimer temporarily put the Kids in the lead on a 30 yard gallop. The fatal fourth quarter saw Buss return a kickoff 88 yards. Dennis put on the clincher as his PAT hit the crossbar and bounced over for the all-important point. lnexperience tells the story. Emmaus, on the other hand, had a veteran team Whose mem- bers, almost intact, played against us in the sea- son before. Whitehall at Northampton Northampton's 22 year victory reign over Whitehall came to a screeching halt as the Zephers pinned a stunning 13-7 upset. Rich Reimer put the Krippled Kids ahead on an off tackle jaunt and added the PAT. Whitehall did all the scoring it needed in the second period. Marks passed for one score and the QB sneaked for the other. Northampton at Slatington The injury riddled Konkrete Kids recorded their first victory of the campaign by submerg- ing Slatington 26-18. It proved to be a costly victory as the Kids lost the services of Richard Reimer, veteran FB, for the remainder of the season. Jack Lucky ran for 2 TD's and Shimer ran for one. Hoffman took a pass for the other Black and Orange score. Slatington's big threat, Schleicher, scored twice for the losers. Page 123 ' -- Gridiron Palmerton at Northampton Northampton's line played a prominent role as the Konkrete Kids rocked and socked their way to a 39-0 triumph over Palmerton. Mike Bendekovits blocked two punts, with Ed Cass- ler and Frank Ifkovits recovering for the Black and Orange, to set up scores. Robert Bach led the linemen as they held the Blue Bombers score- less. Steve Kotch and Charles Shimer paced the offensive with 2 TD's apiece. Rich Chabak and J ack Lucky also shared in the scoring. Northampton at Lehighton Bewildered by the mud and the Lehighton defense, the Kids were held to a scoreless first half tie.

Lucky scored three times to lead the steamroller attack. A pass from QB Kotch to End lfkovits set up a score with Charles Shimer doing the honors. Bob Reimer split the uprights twice and Shimer once to sink the Indians by a tune of 27-0. Northampton at Bangor Bob Reimer ran 66 yards when he recovered a fumble early in the first period to give North- ampton a 60 lead. Frank Ifkovits set up the Kids second score by taking a 40 yard heave fom Charles Hoffman down to the 5 yard line. Lucky bolted for 2 TD,s and Bob Reimer con- verted twice.

Page 125 Page 126 Northampton at Stroudsburg By walloping the Stroudsburg Mountaineers 4-7-14, the Konkrete Kids rolled up their biggest point total of the season. The NHS footballers reached their peak in the third quarter by copping 7 TD7s. The substitutes finished the game by yielding 2 TD's to the Poconos. The scoring was divided among five men. Lucky led with three TD's, Shimer two, Lutte and Marth each one. Bob Reimer toed 5 PAT's. Catasauqua - Northampton Turkey Day found Northampton High's power- ful ground attack riding the Catty Rough Riders into the soggy turf at Muhlenberg Field. The first period was a 7-7 deadlock with Lucky and Salivonchik doing the scoring. Coach Al Er- dosy's charges iced the contest in the second half as Lucky and Shimer bolted over for scores. lfkovits picked up a blocked kick and scamper- ed for another TD. ln the second half, Robert Reimer and Shimer picked up a pair of TD's on short plunges. Catty scored twice against the NHS subs and the final count stood at 39-19. Losing 17 seniors from the 1953-1954 cham- pionship team, the 1954-55 edition was stacked mainly with raw unseasoned Junior Varsity members. Many of them were not yet adjusted to varsity playing, and it took a game or two to gain some poise. However, the steady im- provement in their performance was evident as the team regained the precision that the fans were used to seeing. By mid-season they were in top form, and their efforts for the remainder of the campaign reflected a good job done be- yond anticipation. On TV at last.

J., the Konkrete Kids put the lessons they learned from Easton to good use with Co-Captains Kulp, 1Vlicio, and Keglovits scoring pins in the 39-14. triumph. The Black and Orange ground the Allentown Canaries into the mats with a rewarding 28-12 victory on the loserls mats. Steve 1Vlicio and Breitfeller scored falls with Micio pinning his man in 0:12. Coach Harry Wall's proteges outclassed Naza- reth hy a 41-5 tune. Don Santo pinned Beck in 1 C16 with a Bar and Chancery. ln a liattle for second place the Bethlehem Hurricanes succumbed to the Kids' winning ways by a 24-16 count. Battling in the 165 lb. class, Don Kleppinger came through with a 2-0 deci- sion over lVlikalow. Next NAJHS rolled up a 31-16 victory on the Phillipsburg Stateliner mats. Using a body press Ed Keglovits spiced Northarnptonls Black and Orange victory with a 1:08 pin. Trying for a first place tie, the Kids fought desperately before going under to Easton 30-16. Bob lVleyers7 victory paced the Northampton attack. Back to their winning ways, the Black and Orange again proved their superiority by lacing Washington, N. J., 30-10. Kulp, 1Vlicio, and Keg- lovits scored falls in a repeat performance, and Keller. replacing the injured Brownmiller, post- ed a decision over his opponent. The Konkrete Kids walloped Allentown by running up a 35-16 win to keep intact their league record of never having lost to the Canaries. Billy, Lotti, Breitfeller, Micio, and Keglovits scored falls as NAJHS's mighty matmen nicked Nazareth 40-5. In a nip and trick match Bethlehem downed the K.K. 24-21 with A. Lotti avenging an early season loss to Ayre by pinning him. The Kids finished the season by walloping Piburg 42-6 in the final match. Paul Miller and Rich Santo, up from the .lV7s scored first period pins. Coach Wall and assistant coach A. Billy's charges wound up the season with a fine 9-3 overall record. Ralph Wagner's JV,s completed an undefeated season by garnering nine vic- tories and a tie. Our three District ll champs-Meyers, lVlicio, and Keglovits-went on to the Northeast Region- al Tournament and all three survived the prelimi- naries. ln the finals Micio and Keglovits beat District 4 champs, Moyer and Reigel. Meyers Went under to dfstrict 4 champ, Lertz. Our regional champs advanced to the State Tournament at Penn State. Both boys took the preliminaries and continued on to the all impor- tant state finals. Co-Captains Steve Micio and Ed Keglovits competing in the 133 and 154 class captured state champ honors as lVIicio defeated Milligan from Washington High School and Keglovits downed Kottmeyer from Lancaster High School. With one hundred and twenty- seven Pennsylvania high schools competing for eleven state titles, we can be justly proud that Northampton won two of these-many thanks to Steve Micio and Ed Keglovits and their fine coach, Mr. Harry Wall.

After a slow start in pre-season games, the NHS ball- hawks gradually picked up lost ground as they gained valuable experience. With only two seniors competing, the Kon- krete Kids opened the exhibition games with Parkland. The Trojans emerged victorious with a 76 - 50 victory. John Lucky kept the Kids in the contest with 19 points. Next on the agenda Was Coplay, with the Wildcats grabbing a 641 - 63 last minute thriller. Gerald Simcoe led the Black and Orange with 15 markers. Dave Keen and Bethlehem's high scoring Hurricanes took NHS for a 92 - 410 roll. On the rebound the Kids nabbed a 55 - 52 vic- tory over Phillipsburgis Stateliners in prepara- tion for league competition.

Breaking out of their slump, the Kids hit the victory trail by scalping the Lehighton Indians 66 - 46. Simcoe and Lucky did most ofthe damage by sharing 45 points. Stroudsburg Mountaineers suffered a 59 - 53 defeat by our win-hungry hoopsters. Next Sim- coe,s drive-in shots netted 21 points as Emmaus went under 64- - 56. In the following game the Kids walloped Whitehall 68 - 54 to keep their streak intact. Slatington put a sudden halt to Northamptonas Winning Ways by tabbing an 86 - 58 victory. History repeats! After compiling a 4 - 3 record in the first half, the Kids did a retake in the second half. The veteran Palmerton "5" and Captain Oravec slammed the Black and Orange 75 - 36 to open second half competition. Catty again pulled a close 53 - 51 victory out of the fire. Case and Dulick sparked the Catty 44577. Simcoeis 20 point effort was tops for Northampton. Shimer, Hoffman, and Gassler pitched in as Lucky approves Simcoeis smart foul shot in the Lehighton tournament. teamwork was the key to a 41 - 20 decision over Lehighton. Dead-eye shooting by Lucky and Miksits accounted for a 67 - 61 Northampton High victory over Stroudsburg. Emmaus' efforts fell short in a 58 - 55 verdict as Myers' high scoring was in vain. Whitehall went under 50 - 46 as Coach Schneider's freezing tactics paid off. The Black and Orange finished the season in a three-way tie for third place as they bowed to Slatington in the seasonls final. Despite Lucky, Shimer, Simcoe, Miksits, and Hoffman hitting double figures, NHS came out on the tail end of a 72 - 68 contest to the veteran Slaters. ln looking back over the season, everyone agrees that Palmertonis ,lim Oravec, Cattyis Mike Dulik, and Slatington's Merril Eckert were the loopls top players. As for our own Konkrete Kids, John Lucky and Gerry Simcoe were the teamls mainstays with their uncanny shooting. Edward Cassler and Charles Hoffman accounted for most of the rebounds and tap ins. Shimer, Miksits, and Amatols drive and hustle kept things moving at a brisk pace. Coach Schneider anticipates a bright 1955-56 campaign as six lettermen return for a "hoopful" season.

Another record fell as Dale Salter broad jumped his way to 20743, in the Emmaus meet. The final score gave the Kids 57 points and 38 to the Green Hornets.

That electric feeling in the air means N.H.S. is going places on the diamond. Hitting will be the chief factor in the Kon- krete Kids, bid for championship, and batting is stressed at every practice as Coach Mike Liset- ski's crew prepares for another big baseball sea- son. Back for his last season of outfield duty is veteran Richard Reimer. Other ballhawks are Charlie Hoffman, Steve Kotch, and ,lack Lucky. Pushing these starters for positions are Steve Eisenreich, Ron Kuharzuck, Michael Chuss, and Dale Tutko. Thus far airtight infielding in the persons of Phil Bollman, Ray Reimer, Robert Reimer, and Page 136 Donald Santo has come up to expectations. Spike Santo and Joseph Miksits prove to be top infield reserves. Chief pitching candidates are Cliff Kleintop, Charles Hoffman, and our veteran hurler Frank lfkovits fthe Amptenniarfs top-notch Sports Editonj Charlie Shimer tops the catching list and is ably backed by newcomer Mike Shimoskie. ln the seasonis first encounter the Kids drop- ped a close 4'-3 decision to the Catty Rough Riders as Reds Kleintop went- the route scatter- ing seven hits. Next N.H.S. traveled to Parkland and brought home with them an 8-2 decision. The Konkrete Kids broke out in a rash of hits as Phil Bollman and Charlie Hoffman led the attack with two booming homers against Coplay. Hoffman gave up 6 hits as he baffled the Wildcats for a 9-3 triumph. The Kids got off to a fast start in their first league encounter by blanking Catasauqua 7-0. Reds Kleintop pitched brilliantly as he spun a 5 hit shutout against the Rough Riders. The Kids next edged Whitehall High 5-3 in an independent contest. Hoffman in relief of lfko- vits squelched a Zephyr rally to preserve the vic- tory. Northampton recorded its second straight league victory to take over first place in Lehigh Valley League competition. Palmerton was the victim of the Kids 10-7 victory in a free swing- ing game. N.H.S. collected 7 safeties while the Blue Bombers slugged 13. The Black and Orange plays a running game and with that plans to capture a league champ- ionship for N.H.S.
