In a few weeks school doors wIIl reopen and I shall be a SSDIOF Only
one short year and Then my hIgh school days WIII be mere memorles to be
put away wIth The notebooks and pencIls but never completely forgotten
I remember Those wIll be the words I ll say frequently In the years
to come I ll remember The mornIngs when we heard the announce
ment All students report to The audItorIum Ill remember The fIrsT
day of deer season when The Teachers dIdnt dare gnve tests
member The rushlng down The corrldors to be fIrst In The lunch lIne
I ll remember The last mInuTe crammIng before tests I shall remember
so many many thnngs that made my lIfe aT Northwest enloyable as well as
profrtable From the confusIon of the seventh grader to the mlxed emoTIons
I shall remember not only events but also personalItIes my schoolmates
and especrally my Teachers Oh to be able to thank every teacher for some
lItTle thIng that has helped me In school lIfe to thank an EnglIsh teacher
for Instance for teachIng me to place a comma between Independent
clauses a hIstory teacher for advIsIng me to deposnt my gum In the curcular
fIll a home economIcs teacher for guIdIng my hand as I sewed my IIFSI
seam or a shop teacher for hIs patIence as I gummed up one table leg
after another These may seem TrIvIal thIngs but to an average Helen Jones
or Joe Smuth they wIll be Important In lIfe after school
I could go on wrItIng of my remembrances but enough of The past I
shall antIcIpate the future My senlor year IS about to begIn I know It wIII
be the most eventful of my school career The memorable events whIch
wIII hIghlIght the year wIll be recorded wIth The hope that they may brIng
loy on a remInIscent nnght In the future

Today was the flrst day of school We were glad to see all our Teachers
of last year and a few new ones who seem very nnce In past and present
tributes dauly to the students needs and gundes hum to make perfect hrs
understandrng of the sublect
Our teachers are invaluable but there are others who are Indispensable
The supervlslng pnnclpals are never too preoccupied with the busnness of
runnung the school to refuse to hear our requests or help us solve a per
sonal problem The loyal office staff works continuously fllllng out lengthy
reports and handling all matters of Importance l often wonder how they
fund time to gave us the locker key or sell us lunch tickets
The medncal personnel also comes ln handy We appreclate our nurses
when we are suck or have an accident but we have also found them to
be marvelous people to talk to when classes get boring and we need a llft
During fnnals they must dnspense truckloads of headache pulls
And what would we do wnthout the cafeteria staff? On those days
when we could smell barbecues or pizzas from rooms T29 or T30 we
wouldnt trade our cooks for the best French chefs
Truly from the supervsslng pnncnpals down to the custodians all con
trnbute their share to make our days at Northwest happy ones
years, Northwest has been blessed with wonderful teachers. Each con-
Mr. L. Augustine's P.O.D. class
conducts a panel discussion on
a present day problem.

year When I was a seventh grader the school was new to me I Ilved

three numbers The follownng year I was a freshman at Northwest I re
turned to the state of confusion and remalned there for months Dauly
I got lost several tnmes In the maze of corrldors Each mornlng upon enterung
the bunldlng I would pause at the crossroads and repeat to myself
Straight ahead IS the office to the left IS the cafeteria to the rnght as the

The Northwest Girls' Chorus consisting ot one
hundred and nine members had a busy schedule
for the year. Early in November, under the direc-
tion ot Mrs. Phyllis C. Michael, they began inten-
sive rehearsals tor the Christmas program which
was put on as a combined concert featuring both
chorus and band. One number that was especially
enjoyed was "White Christmas," which was sung
in four-part harmony by the newly organized
Soon after the beginning of the second semes-
ter, rehearsals began tor the Easter concert, which
was also a combined concert of chorus and band
including twirlers. This concert featured, as did
the Christmas concert, various types of music,
ranging from popular to sacred.
The final appearance of the chorus was -at the
Baccalaureate services held June TO in the audito-
rium. Two selections were sung, "One God" and
"I See God." Solo parts were sung by Cathie
Moore and Eileen Honse. Accompanists for this
service, as well as for the Easter concert, were
Rebecca Franklin at the piano and Isabel Culver
at the console of the organ.

The Northwest Octet, which featured special four-part arrangements, was
organized in November and gave its first performance at the Christmas concert
along with the chorus and the band. The numbers presented by the girls were
especially enjoyed both at this program and at the Easter program as well as at
the special programs they presented including one at the Mother-Daughter Banquet
at the Shickshinny Presbyterian Church on May 3 and another which they pre-
sented at the P.T.A. meeting held in the Northwest auditorium May 19.

The band season always begins early, and this
year was no exception. Marching practice to learn
new drills and formations took up much of the
band students' time in August. September arrived,
and the band members put into practice on the
football field what they had learned during the
preceding month. The band also took part in the
annual parade at the Bloomsburg Fair. ln October
the band participated in the Shickshinny and Ben-
ton Halloween parades. In the latter parade, our
band tied for top honors.
With the arrival of cold weather, the band
moved indoors and practiced daily to provide
music for special occasions. The first of these was
the senior play which was presented in Novem-
ber. Following this, the band went into rehearsal,
under the student direction of David Albertson,
for the Christmas concert. In January Mr. Gregory
became the faculty sponsor. Again, the band pro-
duced the music for the junior play which was
presented in March. Following closely or. the heels
of the junior play came the spring concert given
at Easter time. Here the band and the chorus
ioined forces to present a program of popular,
semiclassic, and religious music.
ln May six band members-David Albertson,
Thomas Pugh, David Kiethline, Joseph Link, Betsy
Jones, and Isabel Culver-took part in the West-
side Band Concert which was a great success.
All of our seniors were placed in first chairs,
an achievement which gives credit to their musi-
With the coming of warm weather, the band
began its twofold job of preparing marching and
concert music. On May 29 the band participated
in the Union Memorial Service in Shickshinny. The
following day brought the annual Memorial Day
parade in which were displayed the talents of
the twirlers as well as those of the musicians. The
band rounded out a full year by playing the pro-
cessional and recessional music at the Commence-
ment exercises on June 14.

The music program in our school would not be
complete if it did not present an opportunity to
the student who is interested in modern dance
music to play that type of music. Such an oppor-
tunity was given to the members of our Dance
Band. Throughout the year, they played at func-
tions both in and out of our area. Two of the
more memorable occasions on which they pro-
COLOR GUARD-Linda Cragle, Rebecca Cragle,
vided music were at the Freshman Hop held in
the gymnasium and at a banquet in the Sterling
Hotel, Wilkes-Barre. The students had another
chance to hear the group since they presented a
school assembly program in the early part of the
year. As usual the Dance Band ended its year's
activities by playing at the Class Night presenta-

To produce the T960 edition of "The Northwesterf' the seven-
teen students who composed the staff met in room 129 every
Wednesday during activity period. Early in the year, assisted by
their advisor, they made the necessary decisions such as color
and design of the cover, general theme, and layout of pages. At
subsequent meetings, they worked either as a group or as in-
dividuals on whatever part of the book had to be completed at
that time. Although the task required much labor, the members
of the staff feel they will be amply rewarded for their efforts
if they have succeeded in producing a yearbook which will be
enjoyed now and treasured later.
Madeline Glodek, Mariorie McMichael, and Darla Weston, assisted by several other
members of the staff, typed hundreds of rough drafts and final copy sheets.
The co-editors, Judy Featherman and Caroline
Kinsey, take time to look up from their
work of making a page layout to have their

easy it is to run off neat copies of the
paper on the new offset machine, the
pride of the commercial department.
After the individual sheets of the school
paper have been printed, the next task
consists of sorting and stapling the sheets.
That is what Barbara Johnson, Nancy Harri-
son, and Eileen Learn are doing.

One of the annual proiects of the Tri-Hi-Y is
the presentation of gifts to the children in the
Nanticoke orphanage. At Christmas time, the girls
collected used toys and other articles and pur-
chased new ones with money earned through
proiects to present lOO orphans with gifts. The
girls also delivered 48 baskets filled with candy
to the same children a few days before Easter.
The organization participated in the "Teen-
Talks" put out by the State Y.M.C.A. For fulfilling
the requirements of the course, which is a series
of talks on teen-age problems, the club received
a banner. In addition, the members conducted
discussions on other topics of interest to young
girls such as clothes, charm, and vacation ideas.

fourth consecutive year. The success of the program,
which was established to promote thrift among students
as well as adults, is measured by the great increase in

The purpose of the Student Council at Northwest is
to act as a go-between for both teachers and students.
Under the direction of Mr. Edward Augustine and Miss
Mildred Dzuris, it enables students, through their
homeroom representatives, to voice their particular dis-
likes and to do something about them. It also chooses
assembly programs which will entertain as well as
educate the students. ln addition, every Christmas the
Student Council erects and decorates a beautiful Christ-
mas tree in the lobby ofthe school.

seven victories out of ten interesting contests. The end result
was a tie for second place, and this was not decided until
the final game of the season.
Albert "Mike" Seigtried performed in excellent style on the
diamond just as he did on the gridiron and hardwood. Rob-
ert Stackhouse handled the pitching chores like a true cham-
pion. Vaughn Titus, Neal Sorber, and Albert Seigfried have
played their final game for Northwest High, and their serv-
ices will be greatly missed. Howard Seigfreid, who was

Northwest auditorium on December 23. The pro-
gram opened with the reading of the Christmas
story from the Bible by Gloria Zubris. During the
program Judy Featherman, Albert Seigfried, and

the direction of David Albertson, student band
director, the band played a group of popular
Christmas songs, "l Saw Mommy Kissing Santa
Claus," "Here Comes Santa Claus," and "Rudolph,
the Red-Nosed Reindeer."
The Girls' Chorus, under the direction of Mrs.
Phyllis C. Michael, sang "Winter Wonderland,"
"Twelve Days of Christmas," "Angels We Have
Heard on High," and "Gesu Bambino." The octet
sang a special tour-part arrangement of "White
Christmas" which concluded with the entire cho-
rus ioining the song. The band played for the
finale, "Christmas Suite" and "Frosty, the Snow-
man," to which the twirlers performed.

Elks Youth Day Election
On April 12, the mock election sponsored by
the Berwick Elks Club was held at Northwest for
the second year. The three parties-Liberator,
Ranger, and Royalist-consisted of students from
the P.O,D. classes of Mr. James Cooney, Mr. Lyle
Augustine, and Miss Mathilde Lask. This year our
school had the honor of electing the candidates
for governor. Mildred Wisneski and Albert Seig-
tried, who were chosen as candidates, made cam-
paign speeches at Northwest, Berwick H i g h
School, and Nescopeck High School. Albert proved
to be the successful candidate.
The Liberators secured all offices except one
which was taken by the Ranger party. To cele-
brate their victory, the Liberators held a free rec-
ord hop at Falcon's Hall in Mocanaqua.
Thomas Pugh, Ranger senator, Michael Bedio,
Royalist representative, Andrew Steeber, Libera-
tor representative, and Albert Seigfried, governor,

The Easter concert was held in the Northwest
auditorium on April 19. As a special feature of
the program, the students entered the auditorium
to a prelude of organ music played by Rebecca
Franklin. The band, with Mr. G. G. Gregory as
faculty sponsor, opened the program with the
number "King Cotton." David Albertson, student
director, led the band. The Northwest Girls' Cho-
rus, under the direction of Mrs. Phyllis C. Michael,
then presented a program of song which was
composed of various types of music. The first
group consisted of the semiclassic type songs,
"If I Could Tell You," "Tea for Two," and "Easter
Parade." "Harbor Lights," in special four-part ar-
rangement, was featured by the Northwest Octet.
The band introduced the sacred portion of the
program by playing "l Believe." Isabel Culver
then took her place at the console of the electronic
organ and played the accompaniment for Cathie
Moore's solo, "Calvary." She also played "The Old
Rugged Cross" as soft background music while
Judy Featherman read the poem "Two Pieces of
Wood." After an organ solo by Isabel, "Christ
Arose," the chorus sang "One God," "He," "I See
God," and "Holy City." They were accompanied
on the organ by lsabel and also on the piano by

The Junior-Senior Prom was held on Saturday, May
14, in the school gymnasium, which was beautifully
decorated in pink and ice blue. The theme of the affair
this year was "Wishing on a Star." A catered dinner
was served in the cafeteria, followed by dancing in
the gymnasium with music furnished by Jack Melton's
orchestra. At intermission the result of the voting was
revealed and the Prom Queen was crowned. Dancing
continued until midnight when all departed with happy
memories of an enjoyable evening.
Rebecca Ridall is the Prom Queen. She sheds a few tears of
happiness as she is crowned and presented a bouquet of
beautiful long stemmed red roses.
After the presentation of gifts to
the queen and her attendants, the
girls pose for a picture with their
escorts. They are Samuel Sorber,
Nancy Harrison, Rebecca Ridall, Fred
Kalweit, Linda Cragle, Joseph Link.
With thoughts of school work banished
minds, both teachers and students relax
a delightful evening.

Albert Seigfried delivers the opening address to welcome everyone to the
Hall of Fame.
Class Night was held on Friday evening, June lO,
in the school auditorium. The title of the presenta-
tion was "Out of Dreams." The twenty-one seniors
with the highest scholastic averages had speaking
parts, but the entire class participated in the pro-
gram which was directed by Miss Mathilde Lask. The
beautiful stage setting was the work of Mrs. Mary
Whitney and the art department. The singing was
directed by Mrs. Phyllis C. Michael while the prelude
and postlude music was presented by the Dance
Band under faculty sponsor G. G. Gregory.

At eight o'clock, on Tuesday evening, June 14,
the Northwest Area High School held its fourth
annual Commencement in the school auditorium.
The Rev. Charles H. Ramp opened the exercises
with the invocation. He was followed by the
guest speaker, Attorney David R. Perry, who de-
livered an enlightening address. Mr. Claude E.
Miller, supervising principal, then presented the
diplomas to ninety-two seniors, and Rev. Ramp
closed the exercises with the benediction.

Following the invocation, Mr, Miller introduces the guest

Mr. Perry, an attorney and a legislator, gives an interesting address on the topic
"A House Builded Upon A Rock."
Here we see Mariorie McMichael accepting her diploma.
Mr. Miller continues to call the names until all of the
44 boys and 48 girls in the class have received a diplo-
ma, the symbol of twelve years of work.
The presentation of diplomas comes next. As Mr. Miller
calls each name, the student approaches to receive
his diploma. And now he has reached the letter "K."
Caroline Kinsey comes forward to take the square
white envelope containing her diploma.
Ethel George poses, hat in hand, and smiles as she
clasps her diploma. Dorothy Vogt is much too happy
for tears. Atter all, Commencement is really just a be-

After the benediction has been pronounced,
the band plays the recessional, "March of the

Slowly the graduates begin to leave the stage

Some are sad, some are glad-all are relieved.
As they emerge from the auditorium doors,
Ethel Goss and Bessie McDaniels shed tears
of sadness. Joseph Link seems content to have
