Professor ll. F. Derr
J. F. 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
r Superintendent Derr has the proud distinction of having given forty-seven
years of service to the profession of teaching.

The Value of a Year Book from the
HE discussion this year concerning the method of using most profitably our class
money and the subsequent decision in favor of an improved year book has disclosed
to many formerly unappreciative students the value of this annual publication. 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.

The Value of a Year Book from the
N ADDITION to the value of a year book to the student, there is the importance
and value of the book to the staff. 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
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
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.

The song given below has been Tamaqua High's school song
since 1917. The lyric was composed by Mrs. E. G. 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.
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.

HERE do we go from here?" "Wl1ere's room 3?" "What period is this?"
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
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

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.

Mary, a prize in a small package, comes
here from Brockton. She is very quiet
and reserved and is generally found
studying. But she is not selfish with her
knowledge as she is always ready to dis-
tribute it among those who need it. Such
wonderful traits as these are not found
everywhere and cannot be -
denied, for these characteristics
acting as a huge magnet have
drawn her many friends. We
can well be proud of her.

who is not worried by thoughts of comely

has taken scientific subjects during each

During his Freshman year
Reynold was so retiring that
we thought we'd never make
friends with him. However
each succeeding year seemed
to bring him closer to us and
now he is our true friend.

T the beginning of the school term a class meeting was held, at which
the officers of the previous year were re-elected.
Many Seniors competed in the annual W. C. T. U. essay contest.
From the number the ten best were chosen to deliver their essays at a meet-
ing in the High School Auditorium, November lst.
"Is Prohibition a Success?" the essay delivered by Bernard Zuckerman,
was adjudged the best as to contents and delivery. Essays by Royce Schaeffer
and by Mabel Grifhths won the second and third prizes, respectively.

Prof. Stapleton acted as timekeeper in the Anthracite League play-off at
Bloomsburg. Members of the basketball team were taken to see the game as
a reward for their hard work in trying to win the title.
Early in the term a class meeting was held to select our invitations. A

sentative of Bastian Brothers.

Kicked Out of College
"Kicked Out of College" was presented by the Class of 1927 on April
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
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

he is allowed to re-enter college. Under the circumstances his father relents
and he wins the hand of Miss jonquil Gray and promises soon to introduce her
as his third little wife.

Honor Bright i
"Honor Bright," a farce in three acts, was presented by the Senior Class in the
Majestic Theatre on March 29th.
"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.

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.
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.
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.

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.

Our Accomplishments as
Under - Classmen
N September 8, 1925, one hundred and ninety-six boys and girls entered rimidly
upon their first year of High School life. 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
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
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.

BY CONSTANCE HAIGES, Clan Reporter
We have recently discovered several additions to be made to History: Firstly:
"Soup" McMichael informed us that Canada was settled in a most unique manner. 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
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."
Ma - -'Fi i194AF?7:7 :Ji
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
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
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. It's the lady who is the sinner, not you."

Freshman Class History
N September, 1926, the Class of 1930, two hundred strong, entered upon the Fresh-
man studies in dear old T. 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.
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
When we returned to school after the Christmas holidays whom did we see but-

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

algebra. It will be entitled: V

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.

Mr. Slanker-"Jack, what is a test for water in food?"

of an association which would keep them in touch with one another, but it was not
until 1925 that anything definite was done. On November 27, 1925, a number of
graduates took things into their own hands and called the meeting which resulted in the
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
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
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
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,

The Get-Together Party
The routine of the school year was lightened by various social activities. 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
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.

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
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
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.
The Senior Class held a Doggie Roast at the Covered Bridge on September 20.

The Student Government Association has become a living, energetic organiza-
tion, and the one organization upon which the student body is dependent. 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.

Senior Girls' Glee Club
The Senior Girls' Glee Club is a group of thirty-live girls picked by the music
supervisor. 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.

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.

The Mixed Chorus is an organization, composed of thirty-five girls and fifteen boys,
who have been given special training under the direction of the music supervisor. On
Christmas Eve the Mixed Chorus sang Christmas carols and since that time has sung at
many school affairs. They also appeared at concerts given in the high school auditorium
in conjunction with the orchestra. This organization is not only of value to those inter-
ested in taking part in musical events, but it is welcomed and appreciated by the audi-
ences before whom it appears.

The High School Orchestra is composed of twenty-live pieces. Although it is not
the first year of its organization it has become a valuable asset to our school under the
supervision of Mrs. Hopkins. Its public appearances have met with universal favor
and commendation. The orchestra played at a banquet given in honor of the Spanish-
American War Veterans and furnished the music for the Senior Class Play.

"Bob" Hartman--the coach who put on the gridiron
the best team Tamaqua High School has ever had-the
idol and the paragon of all his players and a tireless worker
in his effort to place T. 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
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.

an-1 Q v X
Captain "Joe" Norris-leader of Tamaqua High's
first championship football team in over ten years
and the greatest fullback she has ever had! "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
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.

"Dank" Giltner-our great right end! 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
"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.

"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

"Able" Mednick, although small for a guard
proved that he had the goods. 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.

TAMAQUA-975 ST. CLAIR-O
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
TAMAQUA-66, SCHUYLKILL HAVEN-0 l
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."

TAMAQUA-12, SUMMIT HILL--13
AT SUMMIT HILL
Tamaqua High lost its only game of the season to Summit Hill. 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.

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.

The game was played in the home park of the World's Champions, Portsville
Maroons. The wet field did not deter our backs who, when they once started, could
not be stopped. Norris made the first one and Reese and Purnell followed with two
more the same half. 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
Tamaqua, minus Captain Norris, Nardini and Leiser, had a hard time defeating
Nesquehoning, early touchdowns saving the day. Nesquehoning scored her touchdown
on a blocked kick near the end of the game.

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.

TAMAQUA-53g BLYTHE TOWNSHIP-0
Blythe Township came to Tamaqua with a strong team with which they expected
to gain a victory. 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.

Tamaqua overcame its traditional rival, Pottsville, at Westwood Field, although the
game was played in muddy, yellow clay, which held our bacl-:field in check. 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 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

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
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.

Captain .................. ELIZABETH LONG

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.

The Sophomore class, last year's champs, repeated their win again this year
in the league organized in Tamaqua High School. 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.

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.
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.

TAMAQUA HIGH-6g MAHANOY TOWNSHIP-4
With a practically new team taking the field Tamaqua High opened up the season
by defeating the Township nine on her own diamond in the first league game. 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
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
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.

TAMAQUA HIGH-19g BLYTHE TOWNSHIP-o
Tamaqua made it four straight by taking Blythe into camp by another one-sided
score on the home lot. 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
TAMAQUA HIGH-35 MAUCH CHUNK-1
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
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.

TAMAQUA HIGH-15, MAHANOY TOWNSHIP-1
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
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.

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.

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
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

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.

Here is an evil that must be

Firstly, it must be corrected be-
cause it is a great waste of

Cheering is a dreadful menace
to the people of this day and

will be no more marriages be-
cause the lovers will be too stiff-

Then what will we do? The
time to correct the evil is be
fore it gets a neckhold. In or-

A SEXY GAME
It is a commonly accepted
fact, that in order to get the
most 0L'.t of life one should be
habitually glum, grouc-hy and
depressed. There-'s a lot of fun
in this: you can make it a game.
Make yourself "it." The idea
Assume the grouchiest and
most depressed look you can
muster. If the day is full of
sunshine, start immediately, if
not wait until it is. When con-
ditions are fav0rable, try your
best to cheer some person up
with a gloomy story. This pro-
cedure rarely fails. Continue
this process as l-ong as you meet
with success. Should you. meet
with anything else, don't be dis-
couraged. Practice makes per-
fect. Increase the gloominess
of your tales. Have no qualms,
for fear of becoming too glum.
In order to tabulate results
wwe have devised the scoring
chart found below:
One Victim ........ 15 glums
Two Victims . . . . . . 45 glumsl
Three Victims .. . T5 glums

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
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-
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.
James McAllister, noted chew-
ing gum sprinter, established a
new world's record today. Un-
der the baleful eyes of the en-
tire High School faculty he
chewed the same stick of gum
continuously for live days, six
hours, twenty-two minutes, fifty-
nine and two-lifths seconds. He
beat the former record by more
than two hours.

Macbeth Contenders for the title.
MacduE-Wait till you see him.
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
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
Macb.: Aye, so 'tis. Wliat's this?
Messenger Boy: A telegram, sir, collect 81.85.
Macb.: Zounds, why didn't she wait till the eclipse. Then she might have sent it as
a night letter, which would cost only 98c. Will that woman ever learn anything? Here
you are, my lad, 31.85 and here, 5c for your trouble.
Now is your chance. Do the deed and thou art champion.
Macb. Qasidej: Is this a golf club-which I see before me-the handle toward my
hand? Aye, I'll do it now, ere too late.
Macbeth steals up behind Duncan, who is chatting with some ladies on the proposed
tax on golf-balls, and carefully tees off.
Macbeth faddressing ballj: Thou, fatal, pale, white sphere Hy true, do the duty I
command thee. fStrikes Duncan.j
Duncan: I'm killed. Who is this foul fiend who does not cry fore? fDies.j

an all-day sucker, which he purchased at 5 P. M.

Macbeth addresses ball as before and strikes.
Banquo: Treachery, I'm killed, what hard golf-balls they make. There should be a
law against it. fDies.j
Macbeth: Now let them stop me from becoming champion.
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
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
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
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

A Football Game -
as rqorted by
PHILANDER X-RAY. F. O. B.-C. O. D.
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
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.

I Your gift will have added distinction and prestige if it is purchased at Schuyl- I
I kill County's oldest Jewelry House. Since 1847, the name "Green" has in- I
