DERR, Superintendent of the Tamaqua Public Schools, was born at Tulpehocken, Berks County, Pa., attended the public schools at his place of birth, graduated from the Keystone State Normal School, Kutztown, and holds the degree of A. M1 from Ursinus, Collegeville, Pa. After his graduation from the Normal School, he taught for three years an intermediate grade school at Ironton, Lehigh County, and had supervision of Primary grade schools. Subsequently, he taught a grammar grade school at I-Iokendauqua, Lehigh County, for a period of four years. In 1887, Mr. Derr was elected Principal of the Tamaqua High School, which position he held for twenty-one years, when, in 1908, he was elected Superintendent of the Tamaqua Public Schools. When he became superin- tendent the school population was 1500 and had a teaching force of 34 teachers. Today, Tamaqua has a public school population of more than 2800, and a corps of teachers numbering 61. Then, there were two teachers in the high school, today, there are twelve teachers in that department. The high school enrollment in 1908 was 101g this term the enrollment has been more than 500. The largest class graduated during the time Mr. Derr was principal was 25, the largest class graduated from high school during the time he has been superintendent, has been 85. Since 1908 the high school building was enlarged to almost twice its former size. Two four-room buildings were erected, a new five-room annex was put to the South Ward building, the Pine Street and North Ward buildings were both remodeled and enlarged, the former from six rooms to twelve rooms, the latter from six rooms to ten rooms. Now there are seven school buildings in the district. Superintendent Derr understands the problem of public schools and is an indefarigable worker who endeavors to hold his teachers to a high standard of requirement. He is a good public speaker, a fine man, who exerts a splendid influence for good in the community, and who has been instrumental in awaken- ing a desire for the continuance of their education in the hearts of many of the graduates. r Superintendent Derr has the proud distinction of having given forty-seven years of service to the profession of teaching. .4-.-- "vii: ' ii ' ' d esi - ' -.,,-,..f.T.,-ax Pagv Seven .-I O O HIGH SCH MAQUA TA L I ' 5,1 S ,V 91 4 25?

At first many condemned the idea and declared it to be a flagrant waste of money, a foolish method of getting rid of hard-worked-for school funds. Some even refused to give any time or help toward its making. But all this was said rashly and without realization of the value of a year book. Since then they have become wiser and more considerate and realize their mistake. For there should be no doubt in the thoughtful students mind that the year book is the most lasting and treasured reminder of school life. Witli the exception of the scholastic ability acquired, the year book is the most useful product of school life and training. Its uses are manifold. The first great use to students is its utility as ax guide to school life and as ll means of learning the administration and activities. It acquaints one with all the teachers. It gives the inside "dope" on all the clubs. It is a means of learning about the various athletics. It enables a student to plan his work both from a scholastic and from an extra- curricula standpoint. In short, it is a fountain of knowledge for everyone who wishes to go through school in the most beneficial way and to take advantage of the most that the school can give. It is also a great advertisement for the sclfool. The greatest test one can give to determine the desirability of attending a certain school is to examine its year book. From it alone, with no other information any student is able to decide whether the school is desirable or not, whether it would be worth his time ro attend it. A friend to whom you are describing your school and whose interest you are trying to arouse will nine times out of ten ask to see your year book. From this standpoint a year book is practically indispensable to the student and his school. Finally, the most important use and the reason why year books were first published is that they serve as a lasting personal reminder of school days. School days are the happiest and most eventful days of our lives. The experiences, accomplishments and mistakes of this stage in our existence should never be forgotten. Many of them are so planted in our minds that we never forget them. But there are also many pleasant memories that are driven out of our minds by the increasing cares of making a liveli- hood. They are too valuable to be so soon forgotten. A year book solves the problem. A year book to be truly successful must be crammed full of personalities and interesting snapshots of as many as possible in each class. The book is most valuable to the class that edits it, of course, but this does not mean that it is not interesting to others as well. Each class is represented by pictures, snaps and notes and many schools devote a few pages of the book to an outline in which each student can put down his own individual experiences. In this way the book becomes a permanent record of one's own thoughts and actions during the school years. As a guide to school life, an advertisement to the school and as a personal reminder, the year book undoubtedly is one of the most valuable possessions that a student can have. Only after he has grown older and has made use of it, will he have an increasing appreciation of its value. EDITOR-IN-CHIEF.

Each member receives a valuable training which may serve him in good stead later in life. In the first place there is the business ability which the publishing of a High School Annual develops in the staff. Our business manager is just about the busiest person around the school. He gives and has given much of his valuable time to planning and budgeting the book. No business man can be more careful in preparing his budget than the business manager in making a budget for the year book. Besides this he must learn a great number of technical terms used in printing and engraving. He must send an estimate to the printer which will tell him the kind of paper,. the number of cuts, the number of pages and a hundred other little details, all of which have been put down after much careful thought and intelligent planning. The advertising managers work together with the' business manager. They must be capable people, able to talk convincingly to the merchants whose advertisements they solicit. The real work of getting the material and arranging it is in the hands of the editor and his associates. The editor-in-chief is the "big boss" of the whole affair. He keeps his assistants on the job, and must see to it that each copy comes in on time. He must then carefully examine the work and if necessary order it to be rewritten. He works with the faculty advisor, in discussing features for the book, the correction and arrangement of the material. He must always be ready to express his opinion and see that it is carried out if he thinks it best to do so. His is an endless task. He burns the midnight oil many times planning things which he hopes will make the book the best in its class ever published. The art editors work with the editor-in-chief. Their work is 'painstaking and exact- ing. They must have real ability and be willing to give much time to their work. The performing of the tasks mentioned above constitutes a training whose value can scarcely be estimated. Who can tell but that the business training received on the staff, will in the years to come develop a great business executive? Or who can say that the editorial work on the staff will not produce great journalists or authors? To those who follow after us we would say that if an opportunity to serve on the staff of the annual presents itself, seize it eagerly and give your best efforts to the performance of your duty in that connection for the valuable training which work on the staff offers.

Lewis, nee Martha Gothie, '17. It is sung to the tune of "Heidelberg" composed by Gustave Luders. The school song has become endeared to each and every one of the students and Alumni. Here's to the school we love so well, l-Iere's to Tamaqua High. Here's to the school of the Blue and White, Whose colors will always fly. Here's to her sons, the best on earth, True as the stars above. Here's to the school that fosters us. l-Iere's to the school we love. Charm' Tamaqua High, Tamaqua High, Thy praise to thee we sing. Your sons so true and daughters, too, Will glory to you bring. Our Alma Mater true you are, And though we journey far, The thoughts of you so good, so true, Our best will help us do. And as the years will roll along, Still will we bring to thee Stories of honor and glory won, Though scattered from sea to sea. Your sons who already have reached the goal, And those in the years to come, Will strive for praises to bring to you, Success will mean work well done.

Such exclamations were frequently heard as we began our career as Freshmen in Tamaqua High. We were bullied and shunned by the upper classmen, but bore these insults heroically with the thought that our turn was gradually coming. One of the outstanding events of our Freshmen Year was the parade on Armistice Day. We were very conspicuous with our green ties, ribbons, and dolls in our hands. At last came our deliverance. We were now the mighty Sophs-proud and sophisti- cated! We were termed the boldest class in High School. Of special notice was the winning of the inter-class championship in basketball, the participation in the county spelling bee, the numerous sleigh-riding parties, and in the spring the mounting of Biology Specimens. Our status as a class of real importance was not firmly established until our junior Year. We were no longer persons of such little influence. As Upper Classmen we lorded it over the lowly Sophs and the more lowly Frosh. At last we entered the inner sanctum of our Alma Mater, we were now all seated in the main room. This year was marked by the large amount of work we accomplished. There were class ollicers to be elected, pennants and rings to be selected, and our studies-Latin, Shorthand, French, Bookkeeping and Chemistry, which for a time held our undivided attention because of the new nature of the work. And then our Class Play was put over big and we were on our way to Washington as we supposed! In the Interclass Track meet we easily ian lg- 1 9 V 7' i, f' 5 an ! lpi' FQ- Page Tzumzly-scum: LX X w r' ,E 1 'Baz' -Q-N. of , - TI 4 .6-? ' YW ---- 21-F7717 2-aiix away from all competition. Our junior Year was the year of our blossoming out into a class who did things and we did them! And then at last the day came for the Seniors to pass on and join the Alumni and for us to take our dignified places as Seniors. Seniors! Our destined goal! We were now in the last stage of our High School career. Never was there shown so much enthusiasm in athletic events as in this year. "No Washington Trip" came to us as a blow, but the decision to put out a bigger and better year book lessened and finally erased all disappointment. Work on the Sphinx, the class play and the numerous other senior activities made the days fly and the time has come to begin looking forward to Commencement. Preparation for this event awakens us to the fact that our High School days are drawing to a close. We feel the thrill of a battle won, and yet a pang of regret that these happy days are ending.

Bootles Benbow, the most popular boy in college, is so busy with :event- ing a patent air brake, and with his various social and athletic activities, that he finds it impossible to go to class. Accordingly, he is dropped from the roll and is "kicked out of college." This news is received at the college boarding house when the lads are in the midst of a rehearsal for the annual college play. Bootles' father arrives and is furious to think that his son has wasted his oppor- tunities at college. He threatens to disinherit Booties, but promises to relent if Bootles will marry and settle down. Sandy McCann, the coach of the dra- matic club, is always trying to "fix" things for his friends. He therefore in- forms Mr. Benbow that Bootles is already married and introduces Bootles' roommate, Tad Cheseldine, who is the leading "lady" of the college play, as Bootles' wife. The scheme works successfully. Bootles and Tad move to Honeymoon Flats and live off the fat of the land, entertaining the college boys every night and doing as they please by day. Bootles completes his blueprint drawing of his patent air brake and sends it to the Speed Motor Car Company. In the meantime the supply of money provided by Mr. Benbow is running short. A colored wash-1ady, one Salamanca Spivins, calls to collect a bill and discovers the fact that the so-called Mrs. Benbow is a man in disguise. She informs the police and immediate discovery is prevented only by additional advice from the ever ready Sandy. NVhy not introduce another wife? No sooner said than done, and Mlle. Fleurette, a French costumer, is introduced as Bootles' wife. She is wife No. 2. A suffrage parade is held and Bootles' father and mother arrive to visit him. Both wives appear on the scene at the same time and Mr. Benbow, Sr., is informed by the faithful Sandy that Bootles has joined the Mormons and has two wives. Bootles' father is not so easily taken in. He employs a detective to search out the truth. This detective is really an absurd Irish Policeman, and when he tries to disguise himself as a Freshman he is hazed by the students and tossed in a blanket. At last the truth comes out. Mr. Benbow threatens to disinherit his son, but the agent of the Motor Car Company accepts Bootles' air brake and makes him a liberal offer for it. The faculty reconsiders Bootles' expulsion and 'SW-vhus. Page Svvenly-one - 0' -"'rSii- ..... WW-i--F are--We we-fax he is allowed to re-enter college.

"Honor Bright" is a production which contains a good deal of sparkling wit. The plot is delightful and concerns the none too discreet choice of Richard Barrington, scion of a wealthy family, of a chorus girl for his prospective bride. His mother, who has implicit faith in anything her son does, and his aunt and uncle await with consternation the arrival of Tot Marvel, prepared for the worst. In the meantime a telegram arrives announcing Tot's delay, due to a horseback ride with George Washington. While Richard and Warts, the butler, discuss the probable meaning of the telegram, a young lady appears, who is a book agent, "Honor Bright," and she is greeted with enthusiasm. Being versatile, good looking and not averse to doing a good turn for the handsome Richard, she consents to play the part of the absent Tot, and there the fun begins. V The uncle, Rev. William Carton, accepts her more than willingly, but his wife has definitely made up her mind never to accept a chorus girl into the family, and she re- nounces and cajoles and threatens Honor Bright at every chance she gets. To compli- cate things to the limit, the real Tot arrives and thoroughly upsets the household by breaking a window in trying to escapelfrom the country policemen. In the end crude, but good-narured, Tot marries her press'agent. Richard discovers his ideal has been Honor Bright from the beginning and the play concludes merrily.

M ARY MOYER Clan Colour A BLUE AND BUFF Junior Class History T the end of our third year in high school, as we look back over the happen- ings of these three years, the Class of '28 has much to be proud or. On September 2, 1924, we entered the portals of Tamaqua High one hundred and fifty Freshmen, the largest class to have entered the high school until that time. That same day the boys were duly "initiated" and our four-year course: was form- ally begun. During this year the class adapted themselves to the routine of work and imbibed the spirit of T. H. S. In the field of athletics our boys did fine work and laid the foundation for future greatness. HZND YEAR" September 2, 1925, marked the beginning of our Sophomore year, which proved to be an eventful one in our school. During this year student government was intro- duced, and we, as Sophomores, were given a hand in its workings. "The Biology" Club, formed to break the monotony of school life, was made successful through the co- operation of the class members and its officers. "Mandy" Whetstone and "Kate" Schaef- fer can well be proud of their record. The class made a fine showing in athletics, six Sophomores winning football letters and three basketball letters. In baseball and track we were also strongly represented. During this year quite a few discontinued their studies and at the end of the year we numbered 97. u3RD YEARU At the beginning of our junior year we were formally organized as a class and took over the dignities befitting upperclassmen. The class spirit during this year received a remarkable impetus, and at its end we find ourselves joined in spirit and prepared for our linal year in High School. This year marked our first in the actual governing of the school, proctors being chosen from among our number. They performed their duties splendidly and are to be highly congratulated. The promise shown by our class in athletics during our Freshman and Sophomore years broke out this year in a championship football team, on which six Juniors held regular berths. The basketball team, captained by one of our boys, was highly success- ful, as were the baseball and track teams, the latter also captained by a Junior. The Class did not lose very many of its members during this term, and, on the threshold of our Senior year, we predict it will be one of the largest graduated from T. H. S.

M ARY MOYER The next meeting Uan. 13, 1927j was called for the purpose of selecting rings and pins for the class. A pleasing design was selected and the order placed with Bastian Bros., of New York. At a later meeting fFeb. 2j blue and buff were chosen as the class colors and a committee appointed to work them into a suitable banner and pennant. During the year several students discontinued their studies, while others came to join our ranks. Among the former are: Wilson Feathers, Charles Androwsky, Roy Brill, and Beatrice Gould. To those who have gone we wish the best of success in whatever work they undertake. The new students who entered our class are: Eleanore Cockrell, of Shamokin, Pa., james Roberts, of Allentown, Pa., and Geneva Ludzus, of Battleboro, Vt. The mid-year exams in half-year subjects were given on Feb. 3, 1927. The juniors were affected by these in but one lesson, History, which gives place to Civics. The class basketball team terminated a successful season on Mar. 16th by finishing second in the Interclass League. They gave the leaders a stiff battle all through the tournament, but lost out in the last few weeks. The class also boasted of an orchestra, composed mostly of string instruments. This orchestra, termed "The Blue and Bull: Serenaders," played at several social functions during the year, and earned an enviable reputation for themselves as "music-makers." The hiking bug Qas usually happens every springj bit several members of our class early in the year, with the result that several clubs were formed, prominent among them being the I. W. W. QI Won't Walkj, composed of Wendell Welsh and Curtis Yost. This club broke all records, covering a total distance of 20392 miles for the year. Page Eighty-two Q-,..,,.f- AX X vi -, fr - v T' ,-...

However, the timidity soon disap- peared, since no one "got lost," as they had been told they would by the Upper- Classmen, and the class won distinction in many ways. In our ranks there was a large number of well-built boys, who were immediately recognized as the future athletes of the school. The first of the class to gain an honor was Carl Rubin, who led the rest in being first to play in a Varsity football game. It was at Shenandoah that he first took his position on the field as right guard, to do real fighting for the Blue and Wliire. The first of the class to play basketball for T. H. S. was joe Pichacolas, who took the place of forward on the Freeland floor. Of the girls, Mary Yermal, in the clash with Lehighton, won the honor of being the first among the "29's" to help the Tamaqua lassies gain a victory. Eva Abromitis was almost the acknowledged future center of the team at her first practice. At the present time the "sub" team is wholly comprised of Sophs. These things are pleasing to relate in the History of our Class, but our greatest joy and biggest accomplishment was the winning of the Basketball Championship for the first two years of our High School life. As Freshmen, we were very proud of our "Famous Five," with Heydrick as captain and Eli Purnell as coach. As Sophomores, we are more than proud of them, for, after losing to the Varsity team our two best men- Dare and "Pitchie"-we still carried away the honors. Again, in the Interclass Football League fdid you know there was one?j our boys came through without a defeat, although the game with the Juniors was very close. Thus ends our fame as athletes in the realm of the lower classmen. During the year each Sophomore assembly room elected a Proctor, who should serve a term of a month. Of the first group of Proctors a representative for the Sopho- more class to the Student Council was chosen-Alice McGill, of Mr. Stine's assembly room. She has fulfilled her ofiice efiiciently, and has gained the approval of the whole class. Now, as we near the time when we shall acquire the distinction of upper-classmen. we shall always look back regretfully on the days that have passed,-regretful that those happy days have fied, and that now the problem of choosing our 1ife's vocation-"for better or for worse," as we make it-is upon us. But we will not forget what we owe to our Alma Mater, as our minds tend toward the serious side of life, and continually we "Will strive for praises to bring to thee, Success will be work well done." And thus ends the History of the first two years of the Class of Nineteen Hundred- and Twenty-Nine of Tamaqua High School. , -,- - I ,-,,...

He believes that Eskimos came down on sleds and skates during the time of the Glacial ice sheets. Secondly: Clare Krell introduced us to an altogether new line of l-:ings-the Bon Bons. Of course, none of us have been personally acquainted with them, but it's quite possible that they belonged to some prehistoric Candy Kingdom. Hodgkins-"Somebody's going to drown in this water on the floor." Mr. Dreher-"Oh, that's all right, as long as no one gets wet." He-"I want you for my wife." Shes-"Are you sure your wife would like me?" Blewitt-"I have a book you ought to read. Shall I lend it to you?" Abromitis-"Heavens, no! I can't even hnd time to read all books I ought nor to read." There are some who have moved, got work, or otherwise found it necessary to discontinue their membership in the Sophomore Class. They are: Anna Bell, Virginia Heister, Helen Hill, Mary johns, jacob Kershner, Iola Koch, Russel Kurtz, Anna Mar- shall, Ruth Miller, Wm. Rice, and Martin Weaver. We wish them the best of luck in whatever their undertaking may be. One day a certain Sophomore girl, who lives on Cedar Street, came to school with some delightful news! Squirrels had made their home in their back yard. We don'r mean to insinuate anything, but most animals establish their homes in a place where their favorite food is plentiful. In Match we welcomed as a member of the Class of '29 one who had formerly belonged to the Class of '28, but who had studied at Williamson Trade School for the last year, Willard I-Ialkyard. We hope that he will remain with us 'till we graduate. Miss McMonigal-"Simon, what did the Cuban government promise the United States when we established the protectorate?" Lucas-"To love, honor, and obey." .Frus- I Page Alincty-Iwo 4X X Ma - -'Fi i194AF?7:7 :Ji 11 A Shortly before Christmas the class assembled in three sections in front of the High School to have their pictures taken. A few Hakes of snow were flying, but it was a new experience for most of us, so we didn't mind that. Frosh-"Teacher, what did I learn today?" Teacher-"What a peculiar question!" Frosh-"Well, they'll ask me when I get home." During the term a number of Sophs gained popularity as reporters for the High School News. They were: Rheba Shnin, Mary Swank, Mary Butler, Jack Gothic, and Constance Haiges. Bennett-"Say, this car won't climb a hill. You told me it was a good car." Salesman-"I said, 'On the level, it's a good car.' " V It seems that the Sophs like the idea of "springing" surprises. In honor of their birthdays szxprise parties have been held during the year for the following: Gladys Kleckner, Dorothy Blewitt, Kenneth Swoyer, Viola Purnell. Those who attended the last two were entertained at "Soul, Nardini fro dtuggistj-"Now, be sure and write plainly on those bottles which is for the dog and which is for Mrs. Jones. I don't want anything to happen to that dog." A Freshman in distress came to his Sophomore friend for help. "I just can't under- stand that girl," he moaned. "We had a iight, and a few days later I told her plainly that I loved her still. Now, what made her Hy into a rage, slam the door in my face, and cry, 'My father is no bootlegger, you brutel' " Begging Mr. Hartman's pardon-"The other day Mr. Hartman said something which, to us, sounded like 'an elephant the same as I am.' This sounded funny, and on investigation we found that he had said, 'an element the same as-iron.' " Pitchie-"Some lady called me handsome yesterday. Do you think it is sinful for me to feel complimented?" Mucklow-"Not at all, Pitchie.

H.S. It took us a little while to become accustomed to the laws and customs of High School, for we were as yet a bit "green." We realized early the gift of Student Government, and, except for a few occasions, tried to show our appreciation of it. After we became somewhat settled, some turned their attention to athletics, while others turned their attention "of a different sort" to upper classmen. Of the latter, boys and girls were equally successful in their endeavors. In the athletic and social activities of the High School, the Freshmen were well, though, it must be admitted, not too successfully, represented. We are young, however, and we hope for much in our three remaining years. Freshman Notes BY HARRY KAPLAN, Clan Reporter In Civics Class there were many debates held, which everyone enjoyed. For fear that some would be displeased at not getting a chance, Mr. Sell assured us that there would be plenty of matter for debate in History. The Freshmen were early convinced that many of the notices issued by the Student Council to "Under Classmen" might better have been directed to the Upper Classmen. Several times during the year, when the regular teachers were absent, the Freshmen had for substitutes "Professors" Welker and Thompson for English, the latter also for Latin, Kochenberger for Civics, and Zuckerman for Algebra. Lo! THE PROPH ET! In October, when Frances Hoffman "quit," Mr. Sell said that she would repent and return. When we returned to school after the Christmas holidays whom did we see but- Frances, our old friend. Many Freshmen made, among other New Year resolutions, one to work hard in the following year. Mr. Sell and Mr. Jewells assured such Freshmen that they would .f . ar p, d-' Vs' fi- :lf -- , .1-.f Page One Hundred ..?" 4 4K ' e ww - 3-is-F775 'Tl " K-5 have plenty of material to carry out the resolution by promising them, respectively, maps and derivatives. According to "Prof," Zuckerman, Pete Kershner is originating an entirely new algebra. It will be entitled: V KERSHNER'S NEW ALGEBRA BY A. KERSHNER, PH.B., LL.D., A.B., S.B., A.M., PHD. Mr. Sell left us at the end of the first semester and Mr. Patterson took his place, to teach us History. Although Mr. Sell's leaving was deeply regretted, Mr. Patterson is well able to instruct us in the mysteries of Ancient History for Ancient Misery?j . The Freshmen welcomed the change at the beginning of the second semester from English Grammar and Composition to Classics. Y's AND OTHER Y's Mr. Slanker-"Jack, what is a test for water in food?" J. Kock, '30-"Put the food in a test tube, heat, and, if there is water in the food, on the sides of the tube there will appear perspiration." Mr. Hartman-"Charles, were you sick or absent?" Kachelries, '30-"Both." Mr. Sell fduring discussion of "Eminent Domain" in Civics Classj-"Florence, if want Seitzir1ger's field for a new High School, how will we get it?" F.

Dunn, '50-"No, what about her?" Yost, '50-4"Thirty Scotchmen proposed to her." Gerbert, '30-"How can you tell the height of a building with a barometer?" Fusselman, '50-"Lower it from the top with a string, and then measure the string." Lewis, '50-"How can you tell the number of pieces of coal in a pile?" Mantz, '50-"Guess one-half the number and multiply it by two." Mr. Stine, on being accused of getting desperate because he was always saying "Hands up!", told us to "elevate our biceps." We have at last discovered why Tommy Tennant talks so much. She was vacci- nated with a talking-machine needle. lg- ' . -s-f" Page Om' Hundred Two A X X of , .

On November 27, 1925, a number of graduates took things into their own hands and called the meeting which resulted in the present organization. The first officers were: President, Chester Brachman, '22, Vice-President, john Lawson, '24, Secretary, Myrtle Schaeffer, '22, Committees were also appointed and large attendances were recorded at the meetings, which were held regularly once a month. The first social activity sponsored by the new association was an Alumni dance, held in the Armory Hall, December 28, 1925, one of the most successful ever conducted in town. Y The By-Laws Committee was busily engaged during this time and the organization gradually began to take permanent form when a set of laws and other requisites was added. During the Easter vacation of 1926 another dance was held, which was also very well attended, and proved the very excellent means of a large get-together for the Alumni and their friends. On Friday, March 19, 1926, new ofhcers were elected to serve for a period of one year and they were: President, Eli Purnell, Vice-President, John Lawson, Second Vice- President, Eleanor Clarke, Recording Secretary, Myrtle Schaeffer, Corresponding Secre- tary, Sarah Klecknerg Treasurer, Clarence Koch. The Alumni Association took a small, but commendable, part in the graduation exercises in June, 1926, by publicly extending a welcome to the outgoing Seniors on Class Night and by donating several prizes for meritorious work on Commencement Night. During the summer nothing of importance was attempted and, with the exception of monthly meetings, all activities were suspended. Another splendid get-together dance was held in the Masonic Temple auditorium during the Christmas vacation, concluding the events of another year. This year finds the organization a working body worthy of the loyal support and membership of every alumnus of Tamaqua High School. The present ofiicers are: Presi- dent pro tem, Eli Purnell fVice-Presidentj, who is filling the vacancy made by Clarence Koch, recently resignedg Second Vice-President, Sarah Klecknerg Recording Secretary, Dorothy Oliver, Corresponding Secretary, Myrtle Schaeffer, Treasurer, Howard Rieman. 7 ,, 2 r:--.!"rvIa. f - Page One Hundred Six AX 6 'il - . 1' 4 MW -7--7 4-Q-'-We Egf r'- -a..K Alumni News ltems 1911 Millard Gerhard, a graduate of the Class of 1911, and Mary johns, of the Class of 1921, were married june 3, 1926.

On Thursday, March 8th, the Bell Telephone Co. gave us a wonderful surprise by giving a demonstration of the work of the operators in all the different divisions, including local and long distance.

It proved to be quite a gala affair. "Punch" Knorr was the holder or rather the recipient of the next blow-out, since it was a surprise party on the occasion of his birthday on November 30th.

Although there were not so many as during the past year, they introduced a note of gaiety into the monotony of school life. a The first social event of the year was the second annual Get-Together Party held in the Masonic Temple, November 19, under the auspices of the class of 1927. The early Part of the evening was divided into a series of entertainments. Each class had a short sketch or pantomime and they all were delightfully rendered. The juniors presented an interesting representation of a Friday afternoon in a grade school. The Juniors impersonated the part of the grade scholars especially well. Recitations and readings were delightfully given by the following juniors: Mary Moyer, Ethel Reichelderfer, Ethel Fritz, Kathryn Schaeffer, Curtis Yost, Gordon Weaver, Paul Wagner, Franklin Giltner, while Gladys Whetstone gave a clever impersonation of the teacher. Following the juniors the Senior presented a clever pantomime. The action was carried on by: , Luke Kochenberger ......................... A fickle Professor Mabel Griffiths ..................... A Light Headed Freshman Elizabeth Long .....................,...... An Erudite junior while Albert Thompson performed the duties of reader. The professor fell in love with the erudite Junior and the antics which he per- formed in professing his love, set the audience into convulsive laughter. He won the heart of the junior and they became engaged. As his fiancee was still admiring the ring, the symbol of his love, the Professor saw the light-headed Freshman and imme- diately transferred his affections to her. In a rage the erudite junior threw the ring at the Professor, and stamped off the stage, leaving him free to woo the Freshman. This he did with alacrity. The Sophomores in their turn held a Beauty Contest. Several of the Sophomore boys, arrayed in beautiful bathing suits, which displayed their manly forms to the best of advantage, represented the beauties of the vicinity. They paraded slowly and daintily past the judges. After much deliberation, Carl Rubin was selected as "Miss" Tamaqua. The judges, Mr. Sell, Mr. Stapleton, M-r. jewells and Mr. Hartman, were later commended on their wonderful ability to recognize genuine beauty. Last but not least was the Freshman's dramatization of "The Sailor's Sweetheart," by a mixed group of the class, who carried off their part of the entertainment very well. After the entertainment a dance was held. The music was furnished by the Blue and White Orchestra. During a short intermission a delicious lunch was served.

Muir'-"""F i'aA"'F??'l'7 if Coaldale Celebration Tamaqua High's victory over Coaldale on November 6-the first in six consecutive years-naturally occasioned a great deal of celebration. Confident of victory-before the game-the rooters paraded up and down Broad Street, leading Coaldale's goat, to the tune of music made by the pupils themselves, aided by every variety of noise makers available. The demonstration before the game was mild compared with the enthusiasm after- wards. When the Blue and White Rooters reached the Puritan, Mr. Wood, rejoicing in our victory, treated each parader to an ice-cream cone. On Monday night a celebration was staged on the athletic field, at which time a huge bonfire was lit and Coaldale was burned in efiigy. Speeches were made by Mr. Hartman and Captain Norris, after which the crowd literally went mad in riotous dancing and singing. Every one went home feeling that the celebration was as nearly equal to the victory as it was humanly possible to make ir. Dr. Barker's Speech On january 7, Dr. Charles E. Barker came to Tamaqua under the auspices of the Rotary Club. In the morning he delivered an address to the pupils of the 7th and 8th grades and the high school on the subject, "How to Make the Most Out of Life." One thing he attempted to fix firmly and leave with us was Thomas Huxley's definition of education. "The chief purpose of education is to train the mind and the will to do the work it has to do when that work ought to be done whether you like to do it or not." In the afternoon Dr. Barker gave an address to the mothers and daughters on "A Mother's Responsibility to Her Daughter," and in the evening he talked to the fathers and sons on "A Fathers Responsibility to His Son." Dr. Barker is an experienced lecturer with university degrees as a Doctor of Hygiene and Physical Culture and was President Taft's health advisor during the four years he was in the White House. Before taking up the work for the Rotary he devoted his winters to lecturing to the general public on health for the International Committee of the Y. M. C. A., and in the summer he was the leading Health Lecturer for the Red Path Chautauqua. Since 1919 he has been in the service of the Rotary, having been engaged after delivering his now famous address, "A Father's Responsibility to His Son," before the Rotary International Convention at Salt Lake City. Personal Notes The Senior Class held a Doggie Roast at the Covered Bridge on September 20. Mr. Sell and Mr. Dreher, two of our teachers, acted as chaperones. On November 29, Isabelle Reichelderfer entertained a group of Senior girls and their boy friends at her home on Lafayette Street. Edythe Schrope spent the week-end of April 10 in New York. Dot Nitchun spent the Christmas vacation in New York visiting her family. On Saturday, March 27, joe Norris hiked to Reading. 'ZTUGL-. I Q " I f"' -1 P' 'ii f--13,5 - gi..

All the visitors found it interesting and feel as though we are a little better acquainted with our foreign neighbors and their customs than we were before. The class of '27 extends its sympathy to Paul Neifert and Joe Ondayko, who each lost a parent through death during the year. During the year Eleanor Kershner made several trips to State College. We wonder what the attraction is. Estelle Steinert was absent from school for a month suffering with Scarlet Fever. The "jolly Eight" entertained their friends at their various homes. Kathryn Bingaman entertained a group of Senior girls at her home on Arlington Street on March 30. At this time the "Iris" Club was organized. The Class of '27 extends its sympathy to Emilie Stapleton, '27, who during April, on account of sickness, was forced to go to a sanitarium in Allenwood, Pa.

It is the life of the school, as it embodies the spirit of honor among the students of Tamaqua High School. For this reason an active, democratic system of student government means an active, democratic and successful school. The organ of this association is the Student Council, which controls and regu- lates the activities and discipline of the school. The power of the Council is exercised through the co-operation of a President, Secretary and a Representative from each of the four classes, who make laws and determine questions affecting the student body. . :-., g'F ' .- ,, F..-.f "ai, f V we- - - 1:32. , Page One H zmdred Eighteen A X x 41 , , W 4 fw'f.'i ...FL -Ka. .- . m e ef- CX Hi-Y Club President .... ..........................

R OBERT WAGNER The Hi-Y Club, composed of Seniors, juniors, and Sophomores, is an organization whose purpose is to "create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community, high standards of Christian Character." The club meetings are held every other Tuesday morning in the high school. At these meetings all the club business is transacted and many interesting and inspiring talks on the problems of every.day life are delivered by prominent men of the community. Yearly state conventions are held in some city of the state, at which time some of the best speakers in the country bring to the delegates worth-while messages to carry back to their local clubs. Albert Thompson, Charles Schisslet, and Donald Gerhard, as delegates, and Dan Schlegel, Earle Fleming and Luke Kochenberger, as visitors, attended the 19th convention held in Hazleton, November 26, 27, 28. At present there are about thirty-frve members of the Hi-Y and an enlarged and increasingly active club is promised for next year. Z .

The club was organized in October, at which time Estelle Steinert was elected President and Kathryn Bingaman, Secretary and Librarian. During the year enough money was raised by various concerts to provide the girls with blue and white smocks, to be worn each time the club appears in public. The club sang at numerous church and school functions. On January the 24th an excellent concert was given by the club. It was held in the M. E. Church Auditorium and was well attended. It was the first of its kind ever to be given by a local High School Glee Club. The program was well rendered, due to the most excellent training of Mrs. Hopkins, the music director. .!""""f'!-'SSVF V I ar fi 4 ,Vg , fv ' in '- ,gf ml... . , , ,. , 11,-7,,flxk Page One Hundred Twenty AX X . -2 , l' . 41 , , TI A f,wr ,.....,P- esQ.',nn- 3---.mx ' Debating Team The debating season opened with a bang this year because the call was issued to Sophomores as well as to the Upper Classmen. As a result the rivalry in the tryouts, held March 25, was much more keen than usual. The successful candidates were as follows: Affirmative Team: Dan Schlegel, '27, Captain, jack Gothie, '29, Ronald Howells, '29, and john Whalen, '28, Alternate. , Negative Team: Albert Thompson, '27, Captain, Ellen Evans, '29, Bernard Zucker- man, '27, and Charles Heyman, '27, Alternate. The Negative Team met the Schuylkill Haven Affirmative at Tamaqua, April 22, on the subject: Resolved: That the Welfare of the American People Demands the Open Shop Principle in Industrial Relations. The judges, Homer Knapp, Pottsville: Joseph F. Noonan, Superintendent of Mahanoy Township Schools: Harold Stewart, Superintendent of Blythe Township, decided unanimously in favor of the Aiiirmative. The Affirmative Team was scheduled to debate Allentown Prep on the same subject, but due to the sickness of the Allentown Faculty Advisor the debate was cancelled. Although the season cannot be called a successful one, yet the added interest shown in tryouts gives encouragement and promise as to next year's team.

H. S. in the front rank in all major sports-a feat which he has accomplished! Starting with green material in the fall of 1925, Hart- man only through perseverance whipped up a team which went through the season with six victories, three defeats, and a tie to its credit. The record of this year's eleven needs no elaboration here. Nine wins with one 15-12 de- feat, it is engraved indelibly upon the minds of every fol- lower of high school football and, while undoubtedly, the players themselves are largely responsible for the outcome of the "battles"--still the superiority of the coaching was evident in every contest in which the team engaged. Only a trifle less successful were the basketball teams under Mr. Hartman's guidance. Forced to start work in 1925 with an entirely new combination, every member of the Varsity of the previous year having been 'lost through graduation, he built up a team whose record of victories and defeats tells nothing. "We build the ladder by which we rise," and during the preparatory period of 1925-26, the foundation was laid for one of the fastest moving quin- tettes that ever graced the Liberty Hall court. Despite the fact that the championship went elsewhere, Tamaqua High School was looked upon as the most formidable foe of the League Leaders. The girls, also directed by Mr. Hart- man, had two very successful seasons-in short-both teams showed the results of most persistent training by an efficient coach. Proving his versatility as an Athletic Mentor, the base- ball nine of 1926, under his tutelage, was runner up for the County Championship. In every sport in which Tamaqua had a team to represent her-whether on the grid, court, or diamond, the clean tactics and sportsmanlike conduct exhibited, have been in. dicative of the training received at the hands of the coach. 1 3- f Sf ' V ' I , e- 'I I .. -- 4, Page One H7l71dI'Ud Tllffllf-'JJf11i11? hq.3'u1ll"q X .522-:--.

"Joe" is the scrappy kind of captain with a lighting spirit which he communicates to his teammates. He is a trirple threat man and an excellent ball cartier who re uses to be downed by his opponent until he has dragged him a yard or two. On the defense he is a hard tacklet from whom very few escape. When "joe" graduates we lose one of the greatest football players in the history of our school. He has not definitely decided what he will do next year, but we hope to see him on a Freshman team of some college in our state. jack, "the speed king" of the team, showed his heels to opponents more than a couple times. Al- though he was playing only his second year he was easily a candidate for the All-Scholastic. Reese is an all-round man, he works well on the end of a double or triple pass and he punts and passes with great dexterity. jack is "peerless" as a broken field runner. He showed that it wasn't all brawn that counted in football by his clever headwork while in there-CoaL dale and Pottsville will testify to this. jack, scoring in every game but one, was high scorer with nineteen touchdowns. It would be no surprise to see his name in the 1ine-up of one of the strong eastern college elevensr. Patty Valentine-our center supreme! Patty is the kind of player who plays steady all through a game. While he is in the game there is no let up for him. He is a good tacklet and plays a roving game that enables him to intercept or knock down many for- ward passes. He has another year to go and in that year we hope to see Pat develop into an even greater player than he was during the past gridiron season. -.

I-Ie is tall and rangy and has a knack of catching forwards that is great to see. He is a dead sure tackler and enemy quarters seldom ran his end the second time. "Dank" should be the greatest end in high school ranks next year. 'Wuuggi "Gordy" Wfeaver-our roving tackle! "Gordy" had a lot of spirit, which he used to a great advantage in helping to keep up the spirit of the team. He gave all that was in him while he was in there and he was one of the mainstays of our defense. Weaxfet is a junior and we look for his name in the list of all-scholastics next season. Rubin was a big factor in our line-a stone wall on the defense! Despite the fact that he is heavy, he was fast on his feet and because of this was often called out of the line to run interference. He is only a Sophomore and should develop into a star of stars by the time he is a Senior. .ffl ,XT 7 I 1 Q - 45?-v Page Oric HIlf11l1'f0ti Thirty-one A X x 41 ' v 11 A wv"f"3-P 4Ka: . Fi vr- G----mea ' - U'-u "Pinky" Purnell, a halfback and one of the "Four . ,. Wk F Nardini, a small fast end, was part of our never failing line, and it was because of his speed that few opponents succeeded in getting around his end. "Fritz" is only a Sophomore with two years to de- velop. "Watchl1im!" f--- f ' " ""' Horsemen," is a consistent ground gainer. He is the plunging type of back who makes his hole when there isn't one waiting for him. "Pinky" has still one more year in school and his friends expect him to go big next year. VV ffl. -X ,J a 3 "Ted" Leiser has played his last game of football for the Blue and White, as he is a Senior and gradu- ates with the class of '27, In losing "Ted," Tamaqua loses a dependable tackle. He was not the kind of star that shines, but one of those real stars who is continually plugging to win. He was one of the best men in our line and will be missed when next fall rolls around. 1 4. .. f- W . vga' ,, 4 - -I E 'I' ,.

He was often forced to play men twice as heavy as himself, but he gener- ally came out on top. "Abie" was taught to charge low and he surely does do it. Earl "Sax" Fleming-Manager of Tamaqua High's championship football team. has the distinc- tion of being the first non-playing manager that we have ever had. So successful was the season, from the managerial standpoint, that it is an established fact that the A. A. has for once in its history a surplus rather than a deficit to its credit. "Mandy" Wherstone-our all-scholastic quarter- back! He is a capable drop-kicker, passer, and an expert field general. He was the brains behind the team in every game we played. Because of the quali- ties he displayed as quarterback he was elected cap- tain for next season. Page One Hundred Thirty-three l - 6 ' ' ln F' - 'kw in-I qixxfifg Football Games TAMAQUA-975 ST. CLAIR-O AT TAMAQUA Our football team started the season in a great way by running wild against St. Clair. The varsity played only about half the game and every one on the squad saw service. Captain Norris proved to be a scoring ace, when he crossed the last chalk mark ive times. l 4 TAMAQUA-66, SCHUYLKILL HAVEN-0 l AT TAMAQUA Schuylkill Haven was outclassed throughout the game. However, with the score 66-0 in our favor, Schuylkill Haven "roorers" had enough spirit to cheer their team. Reese, with four touchdowns, one for 60 and the other for 80 yards, led the scoring. The entire backlield of Whetstone, Reese, Norris, and Purnell worked like a clock and earned for themselves the name of "The Four Piano Players." . .A 2- INNO- i , ' F"""" ' ., r C' " ' H:- , ff:-q.f' Page One Hzmdred Thirty-four , nv -.

Two touchdowns had put her on top, but instead of playing straight football the team resorted to a fatal forward pass, which was intercepted by an enemy end who ran fifty yards for a touchdown, giving the "Hillers" a one point margin with which they defeated us. Although the defeat broke our record it put the spirit into the team, which made the victories over later rivals possible. -1 1 . .,m...... A TAMAQUA'-24g SHAMOKIN-O AT TAMAQUA When Tamaqua defeated Shamokin she showed her real power. Shamokin, with a good team, came here believing that she could easily defeat us. Our team, still smarting under the defeat administered by Summit Hill the week before, soon took the wind out of Shamokin's sails. On her first offensive play Tamaqua had a touchdown, but the ball was brought back because of holding. We were not to be held back, however. Whetstone kicked a field goal, which put us in the lead. After this our backs got working and scored three touchdowns, Purnell one and Reese two, Whetstone adding the three points after the touchdowns.

In the second half Reese went off tackle for his second touchdown. In the closing minutes the same player intercepted a forward pass and raced eighty yards for the last score of the game. TAMAQUA-1 55 NESQUEHONING-6 AT NESQUEHONING Tamaqua, minus Captain Norris, Nardini and Leiser, had a hard time defeating Nesquehoning, early touchdowns saving the day.

F776 TAMAQUA--334 COALDALE-0 AT TAMAQUA It was a perfect day for football and the largest crowd that ever witnessed a high school game in town was there to see Coaldale meet defeat. Tamaqua High was represented by eleven "playing fools," who went into the game with the intention of winning and never stopped until the last whistle. It was a team that played the game and not eleven individuals. No one starred. Within live minutes Tamaqua scored, when Reese went over with a touchdown. About two minutes later Norris followed with a six.pointer. Pumell, Wlietstone, and Giltner scored the points that completed the one-sided victory. Not once was Tamaqua forced to punt.

On the first few minutes Tamaqua scored and from then on it was one run after a touchdown. The local team played good football the hrst half, but lost interest during the latter part of the game. The big guns in the scoring were Captain Norris and Jack Reese, with three and four touchdowns respectively. ln... Page Om' H undrcd TlJiffJ'-Sl'l."PIl ia' F . " "' - .,.,.

Captain Norris played the game of his life, scoring both touchdowns, one on a freak play. Reese started around the end and finding himself trapped reversed his Held, only to find himself in the same predicament. Norris, in the meantime, raced down the field and called for the ball. Reese threw a thirty yard forward to Norris, who stepped across the goal line for a touchdown. TAMAQUA--139 ALUMNI-8 AT TAMAQUA Tamaqua played a thrilling game with its Alumni, who drew first blood when Welker received a pass from Purnell and ran forty yards for a touchdown. Valentine was all over the field. He blocked a field goal and blocked a punt, which he held and went across the goal line for a touchdown. Reese was downed for a safety, when Yermal broke through and stopped an end run from punt formation. With three minutes to play our boys scored a touchdown on a play they never used before. Whetstone threw a forward pass to Giltner, who in turn threw a pretty lateral pass to Reese, who went fifty yards behind perfect interference for a six pointer, which gave us a margin of five points.

PAT VALENTINE Mrzmzger ........ ............. J OE Noluus Faculty Mmmger ....... MR. R. B. STAPLETON Condo ................ MR. R. N. HARTMAN During the 1926-27 season Tamaqua High was represented by a very good basketball team. The varsity squad, made up of Norris, Valentine, Picholas, Weaver, Heydrich, McBreen, Whetstone and Rhu- bright, formed the aggregation which made a Hne showing for Tamaqua High by linishing fourth in the Anthracite League, winning fifteen out of twenty- three games played, having dropped five league games, two to Hazleton, the leaders of the league, two to Mahanoy City, who pushed Hazleton to their highest and best playing, and one to Shenandoah, who finished third in the pennant fight. The five games were bitterly fought by the Blue and White until the final whistle ended the contest. Our boys played their best to win, but were forced to go down to defeat. Because of the spirit and the fight they showed they were admired both by their friends and their opponents throughout the circuit. The brighter side of the season was the victories scored by our team in the other games that we played. With two victories over Ashland, Mt. Carmel, Free- land and Shamokin and a game won for each one that we lost in each of the sets of games played against Pottsville, Slatington and Coaldale, our team has rounded out a very successful season. The teams that were played outside the Anthracite League were defeated by overwhelmingly large scores on the local floor. Coach "Bob" Hartman had developed this team from entirely raw material during the two years that he has been in Tamaqua. joe Norris and Eddie McBreen are the only ones from the entire squad who will not return next year. With the foundation that he has built we believe Coach Hartman will have one of the greatest teams that has ever represented Tamaqua High School, and we prophesy great things for next season. -.

FLORENCE NAI-xr Faruliy Aifarmger ....... Miss MARY NOONAN Coach ................ MR. R. N. HARTMAN The girls' basketball team has just finished the most successful season since the first team was or- ganized in 1921. At the beginning of the season Miss Mary Noonan was elected Faculty Manager, and Florence Nahf, Student Manager. Starting with five veterans from last year the team was taken in hand by Coach Hartman, was taught many new plays and passes, and finished the season with the record of fourteen games won and five lost. The team was well organized, and in their playing one of the most noticeable features was the passing. The ball was not thrown from one end of the floor to the other, but was passed from the guards to the center or side center, and then to the forwards. The superiority of this method of attack was easily recog- nized and resulted in higher scoring. Florence and Ethel Nahf, our well known twins, were our crack forwards. Ethel's highest scoring game was that with Nesquehoning, in which she scored sixteen goals from the field, while Florence, in the game with Mount Carmel, ran up a score of seventeen points, four field goals and nine fouls. Minnie Paulonis and Eva Abromitis, as side center and center respectively, took care of the middle of the court in a manner that won much commenda- tion for them. Edith Schrope and Elizabeth Long held the guarding positions and the manner in which they intercepted passes kept many teams from scoring. The members of the squad, in addition to the varsity, are Myrtle Yermal, Mary Yermal, Beatrice Barnisky, Alice Castator, Viola Purnell, Olive Ten- nant, Eleanor Wagner, Emily Biltz and Betty Willis- ton. These subs showed promising form and will furnish needed material for next year inasmuch as four members of the varsity will graduate, leaving only Eva Abromitis, mainstay for next year's team around whom a team must be built.

They won six straight victories and did not drop a single game to any other class team. The team, composed of Captain "Hub" Allen, the leading scorer in the leagueg "Vine" Norris, the third high scorerg Moyer, Jones, Kistler, Folk and Wagner, was coached by Eli Purnell, former T. H. S. star. The juniors, after having lost their first game, came back strong and won all but one of the remaining games. The Freshmen did not have long enough to improve their play or they would have hnished higher. The Seniors' playing was erratic throughout the season. If the material that was developed in the interclass games during the past means anything, Tamaqua High School should have winning teams for at least the next four years. There was much interest shown in the league this year, as the gym was packed with fans for every game. -4 'Qi'- '1' !"!"i,g,j - , .,,, 3 Page One H 1lIId1'L'd Forty-six , 0 MW A ,,, ' fy-'1'r2,..,17 7esa.'War: 'Z' V - ' ' ff "Yugi 13 K' XX :pe-. l x ,gl ' 469 f?

Baseball Notes When the season opened about forty candidates answered the call issued by Coach Robert Hartman, who worked the squad into a smooth working combination. Practically every member of last year's team can be ranked as a star. The percentage for the season was .778. The pitching records are as follows: A Zigmont-.S00, winning one and losing the same number. Heydrick-l.O00, winning one. Neifert-.883, winning live and losing one. The batting wa.s headed by "Dank" Giltner, followed by Zigmont, XVi1li Purnell, Norris, Whetstone, Neifert, Yuscyk, Valentine, Weaver and Heydrick. The team as a whole showed up very well and all will be back for the 1927 season, when they hope to give the fans a real treat. ams, that The Blue and White was poorly supported during the year, despite the fart they showed good baseball to the handful of fans, who came out to see the games. When the 1927 season opens the Blue and White hopes to see more supporters out rooting for the veteran team that will represent Tamaqua High on the diamond.

Before the game got under way several of the players could not be found and Coach Hartman had to drive back to town for them. Up until the eighth inning our boys could not hit the Township pitcher, but in the eighth and ninth solved his delivery for enough hits to win the game. Neifert got the first call as pitcher and with great support managed to keep the Township nine safe. TAMAQUA HIGH-195 ST. MARY'S QCoaldalej-9 AT COALDALE Tamaqua again proved that she could play ball by turning back St. Maty's in the first home game by a large score. Heydrick, a Freshman, started, but was relieved by Neifert when support failed him in the first inning. Zigmont starred at bat by collecting four hits, including a home run. Norris and Purnell made three hits each. In the second inning seven runs were made, which clinched the game. In all Tamaqua collected nineteen safeties. TAMAQUA HIGH-7g BLYTHE TOWNSHIP-2 AT BLYTHE While Tamaqua's track team was fighting for first place in the Coaldale track meet, the baseball team journeyed to Blythe Township and won their third straight victory of the season and the second league contest. Neifert was again on the mound and it was his third win. "Pinky" Purnell's base-running practically won the game. He collected three of our seven runs. Blythe collected only four hits. The victory sent Tamaqua on top in the league. ' 271019.

The locals scored at will, Blythe at no time threatening. Every player on the team started and every player scored a run or more and had one or more hits. It was the second straight from Blythe. As their "heavy artillery" could not get going, it did not seem like the same Blythe team that held Tamaqua to a close score the week before. TAMAQUA HIGH-35 MAUCH CHUNK-1 MAUCH CHUNK Pitching his first game of the season, "Bill" Zigmont, our classy "southpaw," let Mauch Chunk down with three hits and registered Tamaquafs Hfth win in five starts. Chunk scored her lone run in the second and was held scoreless for the remainder of the game. Williams' hitting featured along with Zigmont's twirling. In the third, Tamaqua made two runs and in the eighth added another. With Zigmont, Tamaqua High has about the best pitching staff in the county. TAMAQUA HIGH--20g LANSFORD HIGH-0 AT LANSFORD Tamaqua High scored the greatest victory of the season by turning back Lansford High on her home ground. It was the greatest victory ever scored over the Panther Valley boys, the locals collecting sixteen hits, while Lansford collected but four. It was our sixth straight win, and Neifert's fifth, of the season. Besides pitching a good game Neifert had a perfect day at bat, collecting four hits in as many times at the plate, including a double and triple. Only one player failed to hit safely. Not one error was committed by the team, both the outfield and the infield making wonderful catches. Lansford got her first hit in the sixth inning and not one of her men got farther than second base. In the eighth the game was called on account of the high scoring. TAMAQUA HIGH-53 SUMMIT HILL HIGH--8 1 AT SUMMIT HILL After winning six straight games the team traveled to Summit Hill, where the first defeat was met. Eleven errors accounted for the set-back, only one of our players failing to have a miscue, Zigrnont in right field. The field was in terrible shape, which made it hard to play. Tamaqua outhit the winners 13 to 12, but could not hit when it meant runs. -saw 'fr'- Page One Hrmrlrvrl Fifty-one L x 0 , - ln 4' W' -7 -- P ek -2 -1 We ,S W wer-ug -X TAMAQUA HIGH-15, MAHANOY TOWNSHIP-1 AT TAMAQUA After losing his Hrst start, "Dare" I-Ieydrick, a Freshman, came back strong to win from Mahanoy Township on the home field. He allowed but two hits. He would have registered a shutout, but in the last inning he threw wild to first with a runner on second who scored later. Heydrick made a pitching record by striking out four batters in succession. In all he struck out eight batters. The batting was led by Zigmont, who made four hits. Giltner was second with three, and Purnell, Williams, Norris and Neifert made two. The locals scored in every inning but the second and fifth. TAMAQUA HIGH-1g POTTSVILLE-10 AT TAMAQUA Tamaqua's hopes for the championship were shattered when Pottsville finished on the long end of the score on the home lot. The local nine had been idle for three weeks, which accounted for the defeat. Pottsville's pitching ace was the whole show, fanning sixteen of our batters and making four hits for his team. Zigmont, on the "hill," could not get his curves working, and our batting was anything but good. "Mandy" Whetstone was the only player who was set down on strikes. fin. .yi-, if sazqy, ff' rf 'N alt .SWIVEL - .- - 2' ll ll U I' g -7- Page One Hmzdrcd Fifty-two 7 1-q? ka, f - xl A 6 x -x TnAcx A , If .. - T' 4' .f-ri' v'f1"" -7---F' i.a.'.Ff?a -1 je'i-:fm is X ? If X N lx ts NX Track Team A Early in the season of 1926 about thirty-five can- didates reported for practice for our first track team. Out of these thirty-five came the team, which made a great name for Tamaqua High School. Of course the faint-hearted ones dropped from the squad and some were forced to quit, but when june rolled around we had still seventeen out for the team prac- ticing faithfully every day. Some of the seventeen won laurels for themselves and Tamaqua High. The high scorers for the season were Captain Reese, with 55 points, and Wendel Welsh, with 45 points. The varsity was composed of Captain J. Reese, W. Welsh, L. Welsh, J. Schlegel, D. Schlegel, H. Allen, J. Delay, J. Scheirer, C. Rubin, Nardini, Androwsky, Kochenberger, Kostenbader, Swoyer and R. Schaeffer. Although they started out with the greenest of green material they finally rounded themselves into an ag- gregation of cinder path artists that won the county title. To make a championship team out of a green team is something that required a great deal of hard work both for the team and our coach, but the results showed their efforts to be worth while. Delay, our jumper, is the only one lost by graduation. He will leave a big vacancy in our team, but although we do lose one of our scorers the remainder of our championship is still intact. The outlook for the season of 1927 looks bright and believe our track stars will have a rosy path, as well as a Cinder path as a field of operation, during the coming season. .EWYPL Page One Hmulred Fifty-four -52-as 'hee- x 41 , , Tl lb WWW- ' "' -P 3 9 4'- F7757 .:l i I Track Season of 1926 The track season of 1926, the first year Tamaqua High had a track team, was an overwhelming success in every respect. Starting with the Thirty-second Annual Penn Relay Carnival our athletes of the cinder path began to make a name for themselves and their school. A team consisting of L. Welsh, W. Welsh, I. Schlegel and Reese succeeded in bringing back a second place in the one-mile-relay. It was a continual up-hill tight that enabled Tamaqua to earn a place in the largest Track Meet held in our country. The following Saturday, May lst, the entire team entered the Coaldale Invitation Meet. Tamaqua scored twenty-six points, which earned for them a second place. The individual stars were "Winnie" Welsh, who won both the one mile and one-half mile, "Harp" Delay, who won the high jump, and "jack" Reese, who came out first in the 100 and 220 yard dashes. Welsh and Delay broke the interscholastic records in winning their events, while Reese broke the field record in winning the "220." The pick of high schools in Schuylkill and Carbon Counties competed in this meet, many of them with veteran teams. We are well satislied with the showing of our team. On May 15th the team divided, five going to the District Meet at Allentown and the remainder ro the Anthracite Relays at Hazleton. "Winnie" Welsh won the half-mile and broke the record in doing it. "Harp" Delay finished third in the high jump and Reese Hnished fifth in the 220 yard dash. Tamaqua hnished seventh in the meet, a fair ' YWIRDID- Page Om' Humfrcrf Fifly-firc' 4, 'refre- - 0 -3" 4' av-v -.....P i.a.'.f'ivry showing considering that we had only five men competing compared with forty-five by Lower Merion, the winner of the meet. Many of our smaller stats won places in the Hazleton Meet, bringing home the first place in the junior High Division. "Winnie" Welsh placed fifth in the one-half mile in the State championship and the team won the Anthracite lnterscholastic Track Meet at Selingsgrove on May 22, Delay capturing first place in the high and broad jumps, Reese "copping" the century and the furlong dashes, L. Welsh, the half-mile, and a team of L. Welsh, Reese, J. Schlegel, W. Welsh winning the medley relay. Altogether the team scored forty points to win the next meet and by doing it won the Susquehanna Challenge Shield and a Silver Cup for the relay. On May 30 a half-mile relay team, composed of Scheirer, W. Welsh, J. Schlegel and J. Reese, won the Wm. Sharon Trophy in the Coaldale A. A. Meet. On June 4 our cinder stars defeated all county rivals at Cressona in the Schuylkill County championships. It was a meet of meets that was decided by the last event, the mile relay which Tamaqua won by one-half lap, with Coaldale and Pottsville linishing second and third respectively, the final score of the meet being Tamaqua, 28-Potts- ville, 27 DQ. It was the great work of W. Welsli that won the meet for T. H. S. In addition to winning the one mile and one-half mile runs he made a thrilling run in the relay that Hnally decided the meet. In the final meet of the year Tamaqua defeated Easton in a dual meet at Tamaqua by a score of 52 to 38. They completely outclassed Easton in the track events, but fell down in the field events. The team had a very successful season, having accumulated four loving cups, the journal Cup, the Cornell Cup, Anthracite Relay Cup, the Leach and Symbol Cup, and three shields, the Susquehanna Challenge Shield, the Wfm. Sharon Trophy and the junior High Shield from the Anthracite Relays. 'Ivi- ,L l W-l"' A l 9, , :,f ,,f ,Er i.q-3-lg, -A-V F, Z Page One Hundred Fifty-six ??

See how rich the cough drop makers are becom- ing. Just the other day we learned that the Smith Broth- ers had made enough money to pay for a shave. Then, too, cheering is under- mining' the health ot' the young- er generation. At present doc- tors are alarmed over a new dis- ease which has sprung up. This I6Hih6I'yUgitis, as it is called, af- fects only hardened cheerers. It results in their getting a stiff- ness in their throats, which makes their necks feel like leather. VVhat enjoyment can young folks get out of necking with a neck like that, we ask yon? Cheering is a dreadful menace to the people of this day and generation and must be curbed in some way. Pretty soon there will be no more marriages be- cause the lovers will be too stiff- necked to speak to each other. Then what will we do? The time to correct the evil is be fore it gets a neckhold. In or- der to d-o this we must petition student council to restrain all cheering till some scientist dis- covers a way to soften our necks. CHINESE PROBLERIS SOLVE-D Marshall Julius S.

Girls are doing it con- tinually. Before breakfast, after breakfast, before lunch, after lunch, at school, at dinner, at the dance, all you see them do- ing is-dab, dab with their pow- der puffs. Just think of all the energy .that is wasted daily in this process: think of the time that is wasted: think of all the powder that is wasted when water is plentiful and is even better for washing the face than Powder. It is a shame. Then, too, powdering is dan- gerous to the health. The pow- der gets into the lungs of the user and settles there. Finally she becomes a victim of con- siumption.

Lies OLD JUPE PLUVIUS says: See for yourself Price: Free to D Students EDITORIAL XVHY GIRLS LEAVE HOME This much-mooted question is here discussed upon the urgent request of Doctor X. Y. Zucker- man. dean ol' :Toe College. After a thorough and most painstaking research, we have come to the conclusion that the true reason for girls leaving homes is the preponderancy of the homes. They ca.n't carry -them along. Most homes weigh on an av- erage from fifty to seventy-live tons. Any girl who could walk off with such a home on her shoulders would be rather hef- ty. VVe fear for the health of the poor husband who stayed till three o'clock at a. poker game when this young Amazon would be through with him. Then, too. if the girls would take their homes with them there would be a rather compli- cated traffic problem to solve. How could a puny cop expect to direct a husky young lady with a home on her hands to "step on it"'? The likelihood is that the home would fall on him in- stead. Taking it by and large, we believe that the best thing for a, young lady to do is to leave home where it is. POLICEMAN CHASES "CATS" A kindly cop today informed Jack Bingaman and Katherine Reese that a courthouse is not a place where young people are supposed to make love.

Lady Macbeth-Macbeth's reason for taking up golf. The stage, we mean of course the course, is all set for the great tourney. The greens are newly rolled, at much expense, which neatly broke the people's hearts. The tees have been imported from India, where all good "tees" grow. So to proceed with the proceedings. Macb.: How, now, Banquo, wherefore the cuffs on the bottom of the trousers? Ban.: Good reason enough. Yestereve, due to the rain, I turned up the bottoms of my trousers lest they become wet. But lo, when I was about to turn them down I found in the cuff two pence, which had fallen through a hole in my pocket. It is a most wise Pl'CC3.llflOl'l. Macb.: Aye, so 'tis. Wliat's this?

The match seems about to be postponed, but Macduff, dashing up in a Yellow Cab, proves to the golf commission his eligibility for the title. So, the match commences. Macduff: Wretch, at last thou art at my mercy. Today witnesseth your downfall. They play, and Macduff, much to the surprise of all, vanquishes,Macbeth, and is crowned king of golf. Macbeth then returns home with the alibi that if he had not lost he would have won, which completely satisfies Lady Macbeth, and they lived happily ever afterward. Class Side Show On the 14th of june, 1963, I, having some leisure time at my disposal, decided to visit a circus, which was in town on that particular day. Upon arriving, however, I found the main tent jammed to its capacity. I then decided to visit the sideshow. The first attraction was a trio of Mexican knife throwers. Imagine my surprise on seeing that the performers were "Doss" Lawson, Bill Farrell, and Ted Leiser. Their practice in throwing pens in T. H. S. surely served them in good stead. Next was a man who was turning to stone. On looking at him a second time I found that it was jim Schlegel. jim, as president of the student council, was known as "hard.hearted Schlegel." After this there was a remarkable exhibition of bareback riding. Yes, it was Maggie Miller. Her "light" weight always assured her success along this line. Then we were shown a lady who had been asleep for fifteen years. Mabel, "Sleepy" Seltzer, surely was living up to her reputation. On passing to the next tent we saw a demonstration of snake charming. Dot Sink, it was this time. Her hypnotic powers were well known in T. H. S. Then came the strong man's act, lifting 1,000 pounds with the teeth. No doubt about it, it was Syd Griesemer. He always was our Samson. Next on the program was the sword swallower, Earl Fleming it was. Earl always was a hearty eater. The curtain now lifted on the world's champion heavyweight trio, Betty Correll, Mabel Griffiths, and Frances Stegmeier. They tried to increase their weight, but must have taken too many pills. After this came the Siamese twins. We give you three guesses. They were E. and F. Nahf. They never could be told apart. And then the contortionist. Did you ever see Charles Heyman put his feet behind his head? This ended the show and on my way out I heard a voice crying, "Hot dogs, hot dogs." I decided to investigate. Yes, Zuckerman it was. He never could keep his mouth shut. As I passed out of the show grounds I couldn't help but wonder what are the benefits of a high school education, and what school one must attend to become a lion tamer. 5- 4, ?, -, ri.. :Wat nib F, Page One Hundred Sixty-four A X .gr W .,-:np aixjfa Fjgxtm The Latest in Fiction THE ENGHANTED HILL ............. .

After wending my lonely way through a rude and jostling assemblage, which was slowly passing through the portals into a stadium which greatly resembled the protection of an equine's foot I found my place amid a great throng. A great and mighty shout arose when a number of quaintly garbed young men appeared on the so-called field, which resembled that household article, the gridiron, I believe it is so called. A gentleman, accompanied by several others, all dressed in white shirts and knicker- bockers, appeared in the center of the gladitorial field. A spheroid was placed in position and one young gentleman, followed by nine others, gave it impetus by striking it with his pedal extremity. I have neglected to men- tion the spheroid was held in a vertical position by a prone young gentleman. The Hying spheroid, on its downward descent, fell into the arms of a member of the opposing side. He was rudely thrown to earth by several young gentlemen who grasped his legs. Then an odd feature of the contest ensued. A dance by four young gentlemen began and ended by one grasping the spheroid and running toward a pair of upright poles. His fate was the same as that of the above young man. Whenever the gentleman in white would grasp the spheroid and walk, either one side or the other would give a mighty cry of dissent. This kept up for a period of about an hour. Suddenly a gun was heard, and one side of the stadium became children, leaping and dancing. The only interesting feature of the contest, as I see it, is the dance performed by the young gentlemen and the savage cries given in unison, which were led by cavorting young gentlemen. It is an exhibition of the reversion to prehistoric age. 4r1 .E'1r1nn-. -f -gt'-v" F vi ' T Page One Hundred Sixty-eight ' LX X 5 S nv .. - 7' ,-a t gg i'Qs'F?7r, fi Calendar of Events --- 1926-27 '-YSEPTEMBER 7-First day.
