mates as separate volumes, each different from
Especially is this apparent in the class index,
wherein we represented the titles of the individ-
ual volumes as the names by which we knew
our classmates, the plots as their hobbies, the
settings as the locations where they might almost
invariably be found, the tables of contents as
their activities during their school careers, and
the footnotes as the things by which we will re-
However, every one of these individual vol-
umes has the same climax, Commencement, a
climax that is in reality merely the preface of
another much greater volume, Life.

ASS RECORD, JUNE
HE terms roll around all too quickly and again
we must bid farewell to a fine group of North-
easters, the class of June, I933.
You face the future with eagerness, I am sure,
to earn your place in the sun. Let me urge each
of you to continue to study. If you cannot go to
college, enroll in some of the evening classes so
many of which are now available. For every de-
sirable position there are today many applicants
and only those who are well prepared can hope
to obtain advancement.
I shall cherish many pleasant memories of this
class, and I hope, as the years pass by, that each
of you will maintain a personal contact with
Northeast. This is your school, not only now, but
as long as you live. You have helped make its
history, and we, your teachers, are confident that
you will do your share in maintaining the high
reputation of its graduates.

ASS RECORD, JUNE I
HE time of passing of a graduating class is
fraught with ioyful anticipations of the future
and reluctant goodbyes to the pleasant past.
lt seems to be the natural evolution of a man
who is progressive, that at definite periods of his
life he must forsake those paths with which he is
familiar and strike off in a new way of his own
making. Pick the direction of your path carefully,
develop a sense of relative values, for "all that
glitters is not gold", and let your ultimate aim in
life be service to your fellow-men, thus enriching
Each member of this graduating class goes
forth into the world a marked man, a "North-
easter" . . . The tradition of this old school looks
to you to perpetuate her highest ideals, as you
honor yourself you honor your school. Strive
earnestly, therefore, to be worthy of the trust
placed upon you.
With the words of the immortal Franklin, I bid
you goodbye and good luck.
"Employ thy time well if thou meanest to gain
leisure. Since thou art not sure of a minute,
throw not away an hour."

N PURSUANCE of my duties as adviser to your Record
Book Staff, I have been gratified and inspired by
the earnestness and helpfulness of those of you with
whom I have come in contact. Such qualities easily
brush aside our daily difficulties, and only such equip-
ment can cope with the problems of a distressed
world. May you find within you the courage and the
strength to accept your responsibilities and fulfill them.

ASS RECORD, JUNE
By PAUL GooDMAN
SepTember 8, l929:
A memorable day, Tour years ago. Rollicking,
prankish youTh pushed and shoved as iT approached
The enlisTing sTaTion. ThaT youTh was joining The
ranks oT boys who were TighTing Tor EducaTion
againsT ThaT ever poTenT enemy, lgnorance.
Long will ThaT TirsT clay be remembered, when a
Tall, sTurdy oTTicer greeTed our Terror-sTricken hearTs.
ThaT greeTing will ever be a parT of our ThoughTs
oT The TirsT Tew hours on The baTTle ground.
Rules and regulaTions were given To us ThaT day.
Words oT encouragemenT made us Teel aT home,
and Tinally, aTTer being divided inTo diTTerenT divi-
sions or secTions, we were senT home To our proud
buT anxious moThers.
The TirsT morning oT real TighTing Tound us up
brighT and early To The sound oT reveille, which was
played on TaTher's old alarm clock. EveryThing was
done hurriedly, we couldn'T come laTe The TirsT morning.
A Tew days oT discouraging mix-ups Tound us nearly Tired of our new surroundings,
Tor iT seemed ThaT everyThing was going againsT us. Our supposed superiors, known
as seniors, seemed To Tind a greaT deal of amusemenT in selling empTy milk boT'Tles Tor
Two and Three cenTs To The weak-willed members of our class .... Money didn'T seem
To be oT much value Then: ThaT was l929.
During The TirsT 'Few monThs oT TighTing, our class began To make hisTory. A Tew
oT our number played 'freshman TooTball and soccer. AThleTics seemed To be The eT
diversion oT many oT our classmaTes, who showed greaT promise in Their work. Scholiar-
ship also proved To be well worTh our eFTorTs.
The end of The TirsT Ten monThs Tound us ready To give up The TighT To anoTher
enemy, DiscouragemenT, buT a Tew kind words Trom our able leader, The laTe Dr.
STradling, soon puT us back in The TighTing lines.
Time Marches On-SepTember 8, I930:
Ten weeks oT vacaTion made us anxious To reTurn To our posTs. New soldiers from The
iunior high Training camps ioined our ranks. They also Tound Trouble The TirsT Tew
weeks, buT wiTh our assisTance, They soon grew accusTomed To Things.
We were no longer Freshmen: our classiTicaTion was now ThaT of Sophomores.
This second year gave The ouTsTanding members of our company The opporTuniTy of
showing Their valor. The second TooTball Team gave posiTions To our worThy sTars.
The championship second soccer Team also Tound valuable maTerial in our class.
Players like STankey, Burns, and Milligan began To show promise. The swimming,
Tennis, Track, baseball, and baskeTball coaches marveled aT The wonderful abiliTy oT
our speedsTers. Of course noT all oT The Tellows who wenT ouT ThaT year were selecTed,
buT every coach can make a misTake!
Our sTudious group land whaT a large group There wasll began To break scholasTic
records. Marks in our class wenT up as sTocks began To Tall. Teachers were amazed
aT The high degree oT inTelligence we exhibiTed.

Time Marches On-Sepfember 8, l93l:
TWO years gone by, and our inferiorify complexes began To dwindle away. As
Juniors, all our abilifies were given a chance To shine, and They did. The firsf fooT-
ball Team had The able assisfance of Fiedler, Quick, Graf, Gracyzk, Hudec, and ofhers.
The championship soccer Team held up iTs repufafion wiTh boofers like Sfankey and
Milligan. The baseball Team was aided by Effinger, Wallner, and Slabodian. The
school publicafions, The Megaphone and Archive, found fine wrifers among us. IT
seemed ThaT nofhing had been leff unfouched by our class, whefher iT be in aThleTics,
music, arf, or sfudies.
The second parT of This Third Term was made inferesfing socially by an elecfion
which gave us officers who Took charge of our firsf social aff-air, The "C" class Moon-
lighf, in sofT moonlighT on The beaufiful Delaware.
The officers of our class were: Bill Fiedler, Presidenfg Bud Finckel, Vice-Presidenfg
WalTer Kelly, Secrefaryg John Topham, Treasurer: and Vincenf Goodridge, Chairman
of The Social Commiffee.
On January 24 our beloved leader, George Flowers Sfradling, was Taken from us.
His deaTh was a greaT shock To everyone who knew him. A fine scholar and a fine
friend, long will his cheerful smile remain in our memory.
To fill This greaT man's posiTion as leader of an army of boys, a man wiTh a loving
personalify was given The appoinTmenT. His Task was difficulf, buT iT was accom-
plished as only he could do if-Theodore S. Rowland, a remarkable person, our prin-
Under his able guidance, our class reached The lasT and besT year on The baffle
fronT, The senior year.
Time Marches On-Sepfember 27, l932:
IT seemed ThaT The Tifle of Senior, To mosT of us, meanT presTige. The Traffic squad
gave us posifions in which we could show our auThoriTy by keeping The noisy lower
classmen from The halls. The Lunch Room squad placed upon us The dufy of keeping
The Lunch Room clean. As Locker Squad members, we did our work conscienfiously.
Many a leader was given a chance To show his worfh by being elecfed To an office in
one of The many fine clubs in our school.
Everyone remembers The I2-0 vicfory of our foofball Team over our hard-fighfing
rival, Cenfral. Whaf a glorious day for Norfheasfl
On Friday, January 6, Kensingfon High, our sisfer school, invifed The seniors To a
dance which was held in The Kensingfon Gym. This affair proved To be a real social
success, for everyone enioyed The affernoon. Many a girl was happy To have been
presenf ThaT day: for on Friday, January I3Th The new officers whom we had elecfed
aT The beginning of The Term combined Their efforfs wiTh Those of The "C" Class and
successfully managed a Junior Prom, and many a Kensingfon High face was seen
aT Tnlaf dance. The Beau Brummels who had Till Then been unknown showed whaf They
The officers of our class were: Presidenf, Bill Graf: Vice-Presidenf, Louis Krug:

And so we enfered our lasT 'five monfhs aT Norfheasf, The busiesf buT besT-remem-
bered five monfhs of our enfire school life.
An elecfion gave us Sydney Schreiber, The edifor of The prize-winning publicafion,

Mr. Harold Geiges, and Mr. Harry Snyderman, he soon gof busy on a fine book.

During our lasT Term aT NorTheasT a number of
innovaTions and improvemenTs were noTed. Chief
among These was The issuance of The TirsT six-page
issue, which was mainly due To The eTForTs of Sydney
Schreiber, EdiTor-in-Chief, Herman Caplan, Business
Manager: and The co-operaTion of The sTudenT body
as a whole.
OuTside of NorTheasT, Too, The Megaphone

Press AssociaTion, aTTended by over 300 sTudenTs,
The Megaphone, represenTed by Schreiber, was

A publicaTion of abouT eighT sheeTs marked The

During iTs Twelve years oT exisTence The NorTheasT Revue has acquired The repuTaTion
OT being The besT producTion of iTs kind. IT is enTirely due To The able coaching of
Mr. Weills ThaT The show has aTTained and kepT This repuTaTion.
IT was in The Revue oT '30 ThaT The hisTrionically-inclined members oT our class made
Their debuT. We Tound VincenT Goodridge as The sTewardess, and NaThan Hirshey as
one oT The "gobs," while oThers displayed Their "Teminine charm" as members oT The
chorus. The ploT was laid aboard The good ship Flora Belle en rouTe around The
world. Due To The Tine acTing and The experT showmanship oT Mr. Weills, The
audience enjoyed a Trip abroad while siTTing in Their seaTs.
The TenTh Annual Revue was anoTher novel idea born in The TerTile mind oT Mr.
Weills. IT was enTiTled "The Review oT Revues," and iT was indeed a review. The
TinesT skeTches were Taken Trom The previous producTions and TogeTher wiTh some
new maTerial were combined inTo one magniTicenT perTormance. Wherever possible,
The original acTors were obTained. Members of our class were already being recog-
nized as accomplished perTormers.
In '32 a comedy in Two acTs, wriTTen by Mr. Weills and Mr. Hughes and enTiTled
The "Green ParroT," was produced. This show Took The lead as The besT NorTheasT
Revue up To ThaT Time.
IT was in This producTion ThaT The Team of Hirshey and Kobler became Tamous.
Hirshey enacTed The role of chauTFeur. The posiTively sTupid expression on his "darkly
complecTed" Tace, his indolenT and carefree manner, and his ludicrous aTTempTs To
win The hand of The "Tair" Julia, kepT The audience in convulsions oT laughTer. VincenT
Goodridge again made his appearance wiTh George Barker as Mr. and Mrs. Glenn,
while Edward Robson Tickled The audience wi+h his porTrayal of Mrs. FiTzwilliams, The
social lion. The lasT acT was a WashingTon BirThday celebraTion in The Townsend
home, in which all The acTors Took parT in The specialTies, puncTuaTed by The sizzling
singing oT Kobler and The absurd imiTaTions of Hirshey.
The Revue oT '33, The lasT show in which This class parTicipaTed, Took The Torm of a
vaudeville show. The besT TalenT in The school Took parT in making This Revue The besT
yeT. Among The highlighTs of The show was a genuine Harlem NighT Club in which
The dusky lads oT NorTheasT displayed Their abiliTy To "hideho." The "lnTerrupTed
Proposal" displayed a Tew oT The diTTiculTies encounTered by a young Romeo, while
a scene in The TheaTre gave The audience many a laugh. The enTire show was climaxed
by a magniTicenT acT enTiTled "The Gypsies" in which Hirshey Took The lead as The
Gypsy King, ably assisTed by Goodridge, who enacTed The role oT The King's wiTe,
and SkilTon and Kobler as The King's children.
As The curTain Tell, The audience rose in Their seaTs and bellowed TorTh Their applause.
And now The curTain has descended on our days aT NorTheasT. Our role in The liTe

iourned To The gym where The TirsT NorTheasT-KensingTon Dance was launched. IT
buoyanTly sfayed aTloaT, Too, and esTablished Thereby a precedenT which may well

of his old bachelor habiTs, buT he finally gave in and proved himself To be a good
sporT. Soon he was "Throwing a parTy" of his own.
This Time, iT was for our class alone. ST. PaTrick ruled The occasion and green was
seen in abundance in The neckwear and wraps of The dancers. Punch was served, wiTh
cakes and preTzels as side dishes. The TaculTy was much in evidence and served The
purpose of inTroducing shy and bashful NorTheasTers To shy and bashTul Kensing-

classmaTes may enioy Themselves as we did aT These dances.
One of The chief argumenTs againsl' non-co-educaTional schools is The lack of Training
received in conTacT wiTh The oTher sex. NorTheasT-KensingTon Dances will go a long
way Toward answering This argumenT. The dances undoubTedly will provide pracTical
social Training from which we may all beneTiT. The success which a man achieves and
The happiness which he may receive in laTer liTe will depend largely on how he TreaTs

you may acfually see foday in Philadelphia many
consfanf reminders of fhis greaf man.
Modern Locusf Sfreef is noi' lacking in fhese con-
sfanf reminders of Franklin, for on fhis fhorofare

fhe Philadelphia Library Co. According fo Mr.
Franklin B. Hunfingfon, fhe greaf-greaf-greaf grand-
son of Ben Franklin, fhe founding of fhis esfablish-

fhis very place some of Franklin's own original works and imprinfs, among fhem being
fhe original Franklin Gazeffe. Locusf Sfreef is also fhe locafion of fhe Hisforical
Sociefy, rich in fhe effecfs of Franklin's varied efforfs. For in fhis building any of you
may see his own burning glass, and a magnificenf painfing of him. This greaf sfafes-
man is said fo have drawn up a paper which was probably fhe forerunner of our
Consfifufion. The documenf was wriffen af fhe hisforic Albany convenfion and fhe
original manuscripf is carefully guarded for public inspecfion in one of fhe rooms of
fhe Hisforical Sociefy. The Brifish Museum shares honors wifh fhis sociefy as being

ln The Poor Richard Club, which is The ouTgrowTh of Franklin's original JunTo Club,

The Quaker girl who laughed aT him.
OTher reminders, done on a larger scale, are sTaTues and busTs of Franklin in Phila-

resTs a busT of Franklin. Crowning The head of The busT is a row of elecTric bulbs,
which were lighTed by Admiral Byrd, Through remoTe conTrol by radio, on The occasion
of his polar flighT. This busT is a copy of anoTher figure now in The Franklin lnn Club.
Franklin had no connecTion wiTh This club. A remarkable sTaTue of Franklin sTands in

Franklin. IT is inTeresTing To know, This genTleman Through The generaTions is The
only one of oTher many descendanTs To reTain a few of Franklin's birThmarks! l have
seen, during my inTerview wiTh Mr. HunTingTon, a mole on his chin, a mole near his
nose, and a hole pierced in his righT ear. According To Franklin's auTobiography, he
himself had in The same places as l have indicaTed, on his physiognomy These peculiar
physical TraiTs. This and The resemblance which Mr. HunTingTon bears To This ancesTor

January I7, l707, in The residence aT I7 Milk STreeT. He was I7 years when he
plucked up enough courage To run away from home. Philadelphia TirsT saw him in

7 S. Second STreeT. His pew in ChrisT Church was number 70. ChrisT Church is

THE HUMAN FRANKLIN
by PHILIP JAMES smm-i
We mighf compare geffing fo know Beniamin Frank-
lin fo geffing fo know Pennsylvania. There are few
who do nof profess some knowledge of Piffsburgh,
Philadelphia, or Reading: buf how many of us have
ever heard of Crabfree, Slipperyrock, or Plumville?
These fowns, small fhough fhey be, are neverfheless
on fhe map, and if visifed, mighf prove more infer-
esfing fhan any parf of Piffsburgh or Philadelphia
fhaf we already know.
Franklin as fhe sfafesman, philosopher, or wrifer,
has been fhe subiecf of so many speeches and
books, fhaf if is difficulf for a sfudenf fo successfully
evade such common knowledge. There are, how-
ever, some of fhe man smaller sides of Franklin's
life fhaf l wish you fo observe wifh me. These, like
Crabfree and Slipperyrock, are more colorful be-
cause fhey are usually unknown.
If was evidenf from fhe sfarf fhaf candle-making
would never permanenfly hold fhe inferesf of Franklin, and so, af fwelve years of age,
we find him as fhe prinfer's apprenfice. Though from fhis fime on, he considered
prinfing his special calling, and was always proud of if, he was af momenfs inclined fo
ofher vocafions, and as soon as he was able he refired from prinfing, save as an
While in England af fhe age of ninefeen, Franklin had many chances fo demon-
sfrafe his experf abilify as a swimmer. The ease wifh which he faughf ofhers fo swim
was no less amazing. Franklin was proud of fhe facf, fhaf in a few hours he had
faughf fwo of his friends fo swim.
On a river iourney one day, fhese fwo friends had excifed fhe curiosify of some
counfry genflemen as fo Franklin's abilify fo swim. Af fhe requesf of fhese genfle-
men, on 'rhe refurn home Franklin leaped info fhe river and swam a disfance of four
miles, "performing on fhe way many feafs of acfivify bofh upon and under fhe wafer
fhaf surprised and pleased fhose fo whom fhey were novelfies."
Following fhis rare exhibifion, Franklin received several handsome offers from loving
fafhers fo feach fheir sons fo swim. He was seriously considering his possibilifies as
a swimming insfrucfor when condifions in America made necessary his quick refurn.
Despife a cerfain clumsiness, resulfing from excess flesh, his fondness for swimming
confinued fhrough all his life, and when nearly eighfy years of age, he declared fhaf
"fhe exercise of swimming is one of fhe mos'I' healfhy and agreeable in fhe world."
lf is Franklin's eye for business fhaf we nexf nofe. Realizing fhe scarcify of book-
shops in fhe colonies soufh of Bosfon, Franklin esfablished himself in Philadelphia as
fhe propriefor of a book sfore and sfafioner's shop. Up unfil fhaf fime, lovers of
reading had found if necessary fo send fo London for fheir books. Franklin removed
fhis inconvenience by imporfing books from Europe, and adverfising his imporfafions
in fhe "Pennsylvania GazeH'e." Before each publicafion of fhe "Gaze+'I'e," he would
scan ifs columns for a few vacanf lines where he mighf prinf an adverfisemenf of his

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN, the SCi6I1'liS1'
By SYDNEY HELLER KANE
When The name of Beniamin Franklin is menTioned
as a scienTisT, one immediaTely Thinks oT his Tamous
kiTe experimenT or lighTning rods, buT This only rep-
resenTs a small porTion of his scienTiTic acTiviTies.
Franklin had an insaTiable curiosiTy. He asked more
quesTions Than could be answered. The basis Tor
all This curiosiTy was a passion for The pracTical. He
was a hundred years ahead of his conTemporaries,
in ThaT an absTracT Theory alone was noT suFFicienT,
every experimenT had To have a pracTical applica-
How many oT us know ThaT Franklin is The paTron
sainT of The American opTomeTrisTs? ThaT Franklin
was The TirsT man To use biTocals? In I785, when
Franklin was in his sevenTies, his sighT began To Tail.
He wenT To an opTomeTrisT and was TiTTed wiTh Two
pairs oT glasses, one Tor reading and The oTher Tor
disTanT obiecTs. Changing glasses conTinually soon
became very annoying To Franklin, and being The pracTical genTleman ThaT he was, he
seT abouT To make one pair of glasses serve bo+h purposes, The resulT--bifocals. His
meThod was To cuT The glasses of each pair exacTly in half, maTching up in The same
frame circle one-half of each lens, The upper Tor disTanT obiecTs and The lower Tor
reading. Thus we have The TirsT pair of bifocals and by merely moving his eyes,
Franklin had The use oT Two pairs of glasses.
AnoTher producT of This genius was The Pennsylvania sTove. This was one oT his
mosT pracTical invenTions and revoluTionized The heaTing oT homes. lT is inTeresTing
To noTe ThaT in sTaTing one of The advanTages of The sTove, which required less wood
Than oTher heaTi-ng appliances oT The day, he menTions The TacT ThaT wood as a 'fuel
would soon grow scarce. This clearly shows The ToresighT of The man: iT Took us unTil
The presenT day To sTarT a real ToresT conservaTion program.
Perhaps you are under The impression ThaT The ulTra-violeT lighT is a producT of The
20+h cenTury and ThaT resToraTion To good healTh by iTs use also originaTed wiTh The
same age, buT This is noT so. ln Franklin's Time, when Madeira wine was made, Tlies
TrequenTly Tell in. One day Franklin opened a boTTle of This wine and Tound Three
Tlies. These flies he placed in a sieve, so ThaT The wine would drain off, and leTT Them
in The sun. ln less Than Three hours, Two oT Them came To life and Tlew off. The
logical conclusion was ThaT The sun has been The source of life. lT Then occurred To
Franklin ThaT if Tlies could be resusciTaTed, why noT human beings who had drowned,
and, in a leTTer relaTing This discovery, The scienTisT makes The requesT ThaT if he
could perTecT The resToraTion he would like To be embalmed in Madeira wine and
Then revived aTTer a period of Time. l wonder, had This wish been granTed and
on being revived Today, how Franklin would deal wiTh our presenT problems, boTh
scienTific and economic.

Anofher medical feaf was his affempfed cure of disease wifh elecfricify. He fook
several paralyfics and subiecfed fhem fo elecfric charges for several days, each day
increasing fhe sfrengfh of fhe charge. His pafienfs soon found fhaf fhey were able
fo move fheir arms and legs. The freafmenf proved successful. Today we affempf
fo cure infanfile paralysis and muscular disorders by almosf fhe same mefhod.
He observed fhaf rum made in lead fanks caused sfomach ailmenfs similar fo fhaf
which prinfers gof from using lead fype. His proof was fhe facf fhaf fhis disease
was mosf prevalenf among lead workers. He recommended fhaf physicians fake fhis
info considerafion and affempf a cure.
Anofher example of his greaf abilify is shown in his explanafion of fhe earfh's
magnefic field and ifs effecfs. Franklin believed fhaf fhe earfh was once a liquid
mass and fhaf fhrough fhe ages fhis had slowly cooled and fhe lighfer subsfances
floafed fo fhe fop, causing mounfains in fhe final hardening. He furfher reasoned
fhaf since iron can be magnefized by anofher magnef, mighf nof our norfh and soufh
magnefic poles also confain large quanfifies of iron ore, fhis mefal being magnefized
by anofher planef wifh a magnefic field and sfill furfher, mighf nof fhe whole solar
sysfems be held fogefher by a similar magnefic affracfion? Nexf, in deducfion, came
fhe fhoughf fhaf fhe femperafure zones and 'rhe posifion of fhe seas was defermined
by fhe sfrengfh and posifions of fhe earfh's magnefic field. If 'rhe laffer be frue, if
accounfed for fhe facf fhaf in frigid regions, fossil remains are found, proving fhaf
life once flourished fhere. Since fhaf fime a planef wifh a sfronger magnefic field
came nearer fhe earfh and changed fhe locafion of fhe magnefic poles. This in furn
moved 'rhe presenf arcfic and anfarcfic regions from fropical fo frozen zones. Since
fhe sea was also confrolled by fhese magnefic fields, perhaps when fhis change, caused
by anofher planef, fook place, fhe greaf Flood came. Franklin's explanafion of fhe
Flood shows his desire and efforf fo explain unknown phenomena.
No doubf some of us remember when 'rhe Wrighfs flew fheir firsf airplane off Kiffy
Hawk, and exclaimed: "l wonder whaf fhis age will come fo wifh all ifs new con-
frapfions," buf fhaf really wasn'f new. ln I784, affer seeing fhe firsf balloon flighfs
carry men, Franklin prophesied a fufure aerial war. To be exacf, he conceived of
5,000 balloons, each fo carry fwo armed men, as fhe fufure army. The balloons
would fake off, land, do fheir desfrucfion and fhen leave before fhe enemy could
collecf fhemselves. To prepare againsf such an affack was almosf impossible in
Franklin's mind and so in fhaf early day he recommended an end fo all wars. Per-
haps even such greaf ships as fhe modern Macon were in fheir embryo sfafe in his
brain. Today we see fhis prophecy fulfilled in our greaf air forces.
Franklin was one of our earliesf paleonfologisfs, as shown by fhe facf fhaf when
several fossil feefh and bones were found in fhe Ohio V ll f f h
fo him for classificafion.

By NELSON R. JANTZEN
My worfhy colleagues delivered fo you inferesfing

zen, Benjamin Franklin. As a scienfisf and valuable
member of our communify Franklin was unexcelled,
and if is fherefore fiffing fhaf fhe greafesf pracfical
and scienfific insfifufion of Philadelphia is being
erecfed as a memorial fo fhis pafriof.
The Poor Richard Club has had a greaf alfruisfic

vized cifizen. As a resulf if has unifed wifh fhe
Franklin lnsfifufe in building a memorial, nof only

greaf infrinsic value fo fhe cify of Philadelphia.
The amazing sum of five million dollars was
solicifed fhrough donafions by fhe backers of This

Alfhough fhe enferprise is fermed a "museum," if is only a museum in fhe modern
concepfion of fhe word. Nof so long since a museum was, as sfafed by Dr. Howard
McClenahan, leader of fhe enferprise, "a junk heap, wherein only 'firsfs' were fol-
erafed, and copies however perfecf were faboo." The presenf-day fheory porfrays
a museum as an enlighfening agency for educafion. And such is fhe Franklin lnsfifufe
The purpose of fhe enferprise is fo explain fhe fundamenfal principles of science
and fheir applicafion in modern indusfry, along wifh fhe developmenf of mechanical
devices from fheir original predecessors. This will be done largely fhrough experi-
menfafion, use of charfs, use of phofographs, or in any ofher pracfical manner. ln many

enioymenf. ln cases where dangerous apparafus is used, an affendanf will demonsfrafe
Of course, originals will be on display, for fhey add fhe necessary afmosphere and
provide a poefic fhrill fo one who would gaze, lef us say, af Franklin's original elec-
frical machine. Buf when such is fhe case a duplicafe will be consfrucfed wifh which
fhe curious public may meddle. If fhe duplicafe is broken, anofher may replace if

WE'RE SINGING THE SCHOOL SONG
By HowARo HOLMES
We're singing the school song tonight-
How each note of it rings on the ear!
The voices, how happy and bright,
And the words, how remarkably clear!
"Near a busy city street,"-
How the words lead on and on-
"Home of virtue, Learning's seat"-
ln that old, familiar song.
There a noble school does stand
We shall sing of oft again,
Honor's rule our guiding hand.
Don't you love that old refrain!
"Hail, Northeast! Hail, Northeast!"
How they make that chorus ring!
"From the greatest to the least"
Loyal sons thy praises sing.
NORTHEAST HIGH SCHOOL IO9
INGING THE SCHO
Say, you old "grad," when we sing it-
Don't you hear a voice iust then,
That within you cries, "l wish that l
Were only back again."
Tonight we too shall feel it,
For we ioin your ranks, and then
Our hearts will iump and we will wish
That we were back again.
Back again! Forever passing
Those old "sheep-skins" down the line,
Listening to farewell speeches,
Singing school songs all the time!
But life wosn't made for dreaming!
We must do far more than sing,
For the men who are the greatest
Are the men who do the thing:
Build the bridges, rule the nations,
Write the books-the rule's the same:
The man whose work's the finest
Carves in memory's halls his name.
We are starting life's adventure,
"From the greatest to the Ieast."
We ask God's blessing on this class
And on our school-Northeast.

'IQ 3 3 The ouflook for fhe I933 baseball season was exceedingly brighf. Lou
Effinger, lasf year's sfar hurler, backed by an enfire veferan feam, was
fhe cause of fhe exulfafion.
The feam, coached by Mr. Engel, ushered in fhe season wifh Germanfown, wifhouf
having fasfed any oufside compefifion. The old adage, "Pracfice makes perfecf,"
seemed fo hold frue, for fhe Archives fook a 5-2 lacing from fhe Clivedens. Reds
Bailey gained fhe decision over Effinger, buf had Lou received fhe proper supporf fhe
resulf mighf have been differenf.
Hopes soared high again when fhe Red and Black squad frounced ifs arch rival,
Cenfral, I0-4. Effinger, besides holding fhe Mirrors fo fwo hifs, furned slugger and
rammed ouf four hifs. One of fhese was a home run in fhe firsf inning wifh fwo men
on fhaf feafured a five-run rally. Jerry Neri also connecfed for a round fripper in
Affer fhis auspicious change fhe Englemen furned sour again. They mef Olney and
much fo fheir disgusf and sorrow, fasfed defeaf for fhe second fime by fhe score of
5-2. If was an old-fashioned pifching duel befween Effinger and Dick Carfer of fhe
Trojan nine, fhe score reading 2-2 af fhe end of seven innings. Buf fhe eighfh frame
furned fhe fables in favor of Olney when Carfer's homer plus some infield errors
neffed Olney fhree runs and fhe ball game.
Chances for fhe fifle were now very dim buf fhere was sfill an oufside hope. This
lasf flickering ray of hope was exfinguished by Soufhern when fhe Downfowners

naTed Trom The pennanT race and ETTinger Tailed To compleTe his game Tor The 'TirsT
Time in Two years. The lone Archive Tally came as a resulT of GraT's homeric smash.
Warnas, a second-sTring hurler, made his varsiTy debuT relieving Effinger. Warnas
silenced The SouThern baTs very e'FTecTively Tor The remainder o'T The game, noT per-
miTTing a run Tor Three innings.
The WesT Philly game 'found Warnas aTTending To The piTching chores while E'FTinger
played in The ouTer garden. The rookie made good in his iniTial sTarT and Turned in

up The game. Benny Culp showed his prowess as a long disTance clouTer by hiTTing
'Two circuiT drives, bringing his ToTal Tor The season up To Three.
Warnas was given his second piTching assignmenT againsT Frankford, and The
diminuTive Tlinger again emerged vicTorious. This game was a hard-ToughT baTTle wiTh
The deciding runs coming in The ninTh inning. Sickenberg sTaged a dramaTic Tinish
when he clouTed a Tour-masTer wiTh Dennis on T'irsT in The 'Final game To give NorTh-
easT a 6-4 vicTory, iTs Third of The season.
E'TTinger reTurned To The mound againsT GraTz and showed real Torm, winning 3-2.
Wallner's Timely hiTTing provided The margin of vicTory, a'TTer The oscillaTing score

son. All The HillToppers goT Tor Their hospiTaliTy was a neaT 3-O blanking, provided
mainly Through The eTTorTs of Lou ETTinger.
The TilT was The TiTTh loop Triumph and landed The Archives in a Triple Tie Tor
