G. Horner, Superintendent F. G. Horner, Superintendent of Public Schools, was born at Meyersdale, Somerset County, Pa., in 1886. After attending the public schools in that county, he continued his studies at Juniata Preparatory School graduating from there in 1904. For the next four years, 1904-1908, he taught school in Somerset County. He then entered Juniata College, from which he was graduated in 1912 with an A.B. degree. In 1916 he re- ceived an A.M. from Columbia University. Since then he has two summer sessions work toward a Ph.D, in Administration. After leaving Juniata College, Mr. Horner taught at Bedford, Pa., for one year, 1912-1913. In the fall of 1913, he came to teach in the Tamaqua High School. Here he taught the subjects of Science and Mathematics from 1913 to 1920. In 1920 he was made Assistant Principal and in 1923, Principal. This position he held until June, 1927, when upon the retirement of Superintendent J. F. Derr, he assumed the duties of Superintendent of Public Schools. Under Mr. Horner,s supervision various innovations have been introduced into the Schools of Tamaqua. Grade Building Principals have been appointed in each one of the Grade Buildings. Standardized tests are also being given thruout the schools. It is under his supervision that the much-needed new Senior High School, will be opened. This, henceforth, will be the place of study for the Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors. On the other hand, the present High School will become Junior High in September of this year. This will be a complete, separate unit from the Senior High School and will have departmentalized teaching and ability grouping. One needs only to be with Mr. Horner a few minutes to realize the energy and the force of leadership that has carried him so swiftly to the position which he now holds. The Board of School Directors of Tamaqua are to be complimented on the selection of such a worthy man. we . , ,W . ffl 1 -t r.. W e - --M my ' xglnnf -- ' ' ng ,vsp .17 4 1 4,1 if ,wg '.

This small clan was known as the Munsee or Wolf clan. The origin of the names of many towns in Eastern Pennsylvania is attributed directly to names used by these Indians to identify a spot which they knew, perhaps as a good hunting or camping ground or because of some event, which had taken place there. Tuscarora, familiar to us, was the cognomen of an Indian tribe which had camped and left their tribal name to the spot now occupied by the town of Tuscarora. The beautiful mountain country in this district was then filled with many large and pretgf waterfallsi some of which formed a small creek running through a sheltered cup-like valley hidden among several mountains. This spot made an ideal camping ground, protected as it was from cold winds and bountifully provided with game, wood and sparkling clear water. The Indians, to designate this place called it "Tamaqua" which meant in their language "falling water." When later a town was founded by white settlers this name persisted and was interpreted by the whites as "running water." . From the origin of the name of our town, the 1928 Sphinx derives its theme. The book divisions are headed by pictures of some of the greatest waterfalls in the world, while the habits, customs and implements of the Lenapes are illustrated in other draw- ings. These drawings as well as the border design indicate that the Indians who inhabited this section of our state were an agricultural group, skilled however in the making of pottery and other Indian arts. They fought defensively but were not ag- gressively warlike and in general were much the same in their life habits as we are today. ' Therefore to give a new understanding from whence came the name which our high school bears, the theme of this book is based upon the definition of the Indian name of our Alma Mater-to us, the most fair. va , .

Their faces were dark and sombre with heavy thoughts. Suddenly a particularly sombre warrior, much bedecked with eagle feathers, stretched out his hands and en- circling the whole group spake to them in this wise: "Already, my children, four winters and many moons have come and vanished since we-then a tribe of fifty and one hundred braves first came to this Field of Learning. We, ignorant then, since have learned of many things, of the wonders of the earth and of the Supreme Being, and of the wonders of the past races, and possi- bilities of the future. We must use this knowledge." The listening warriors nodded a silent approval and the majestic voice continued: "Oh, indeed, we have accomplished much! For with the first Sun of this land yet upon us we united into a band fScience Clubj to determine why the stars shine in the heavens, why it thunders, why the seasons change, and the cause of many other phenomena of Nature." "The second winter found us advancing along other lines. An organization fBiology Clubj to learn the secrets of the birds and beasts was formed. Fortune favored us and we prospered." "When at last the Winds of the third Autumn found us still in the act of attaining higher things we were delightedly contented in the past and confident of the future." "Then the Mi hr One called a eace-council of all warriors. A chief ma nifi- g yn Q P s q . g cently plumed and a fair maid were chosen ruling powers of the tribe. Tribal colors, pennants and ornaments were added to our possessions. Even the former rulers of this dominion, the mi ht tribe of Twent -seven, were com elled to reco nize our rulin 1 . . g y 1 Y - P 4 g I g influence in their council fStudent C0l.lHCllJ for we were now a leading tribe. "Besides many glories had come to the tribe through the prowess in sports of a few brawny braves. Two sports Qbasketball and footballj claimed Warriors from our powerful tribe as their chiefs"' "The fourth Autumn rolled around--the fourth Winter has passed-and the fourth Spring glides swiftly into oblivion. Work and organization leave us little time to wonder at the future-but children-my braves-we must! The Great Spirit appeared before me in my sleep and warned me that our allotted time in this place will soon have elapsed. New lands stretch on every side. There we must show our appreciation of the enjoyable life we have lived here--let us heed the warning and seek new fields- out there." Thus ointin to a vast infinit the warrior ended. His comrades ea er at the P s Y h 3 I thought of new adventures, but sad at the thought of departure, silently pass into the shadows of their wigwams to prepare for a long journey-! 19 ..-'FG U asv.

THOMAS EDWARD AMBROSE 'Sincerity is the keynote of :ucee.c.v" "Tommy" is a quiet sort of fellow who works hard but has very little to say. His genial nature and his read- iness to help any one in need make him a very desirable friend. As to the girl question, we must give him credit for being wise enough to "let 'em alone.'y He is always seri- ous about his work and his hobby seems to be studying.

Considering what has been required of "Foxy'l besides his school work i. e., his services to the Reading Company in the capacity of call boy, we may well say that he has set a fine record in his four years' stay with us.

Clarence, as you will note below was the manager of our Champion Football Team. Much of the success of the team was due to his efforts. He is always ready for a joke, and also on the lookout for Student Council, with which he does not always agree. HCoy'f is one of our best art editors and intends to follow architectural lines.

Senior Class Notes On September 8, school opened its sessions with a new class of Seniors, eighty-one strong. It has struggled and lived up to the standards that were established by the pre- ceding classes and added no little history to the archives of T. H. S. The first class meeting was held November 21, for the purpose of selecting Com- mencement invitations and name cards. The class was unanimous in selecting from designs submitted by Paul Wagner, salesman for Bastian Brothers and an order immedi- ately placed. The second meeting was held February 28 to decide the wearing apparel for Class Day exercises. It was decided that the boys appear in dark suits and the girls in evening gowns. The W. C. T. U. contest was repeated, Eleanor Cockrell winning first prize with her essay "Why Total Abstinance from Alcoholic Liquors Is Absolutely Essential in Modern Business and Transportation? Second and third prizes were awarded to Christie Feather and Mary Nardini respectively. Something new was inaugurated in our school which for a time made things unpleasant for no few Seniors. That was the State examination in five elective subjects and was compulsory for every member of the class. That a spirit of fraternity existed in the Senior class was manifested by the various clubs that existed within it. Prominent among them, were the S. O. B., A. Z. O. and the O. M. G. C. The Seniors were also prominent in athletics, contributing in all ten members to the varsity teams in Football, Basketball, Baseball and Track. We were also well represented in every branch of sport by successful inter-class teams. It, therefore, cannot be said that the Seniors failed to do their part in helping make Tamaque High School more fraternal, more enthusiastic and more athletic.

A LICE MCGILL CLASS COLORS Black and Gold At present, the members of the Class of '29 have nearly completed their third year of High School life, and still have one hundred and thirty-one of the hundred and ninety- six who entered T. H. S. in 1925. We are mighty proud of this fact, as it is almost a sure proof that this class will be the largest ever graduated from our school. Of our attaintments during these three years, much can be said. As Freshmen, we surprised ourselves and everyone else by winning the Interclass Basketball championship, and in November, the efforts of an ambitious decorating committee were rewarded by receiving the prize for the most attractive float in the Armistice Day Parade. In our second year, we again fought hard for and won the Interclass B. B. Championship. By this time the ability of our boys as athletes was being discovered. In our Freshman year, Carl Rubin was first to play Varsity Football, and Pichacolas was :Hrst of our number in a Varsity Basketball game. The Sophomore year, the line-up of both Football and Basketball teams contained members of our class, and by the time our Junior year came around, our boys filled nearly all the places on both teams. New experiences came into most of our lives this year, with the election of oflicers, selection of rings and class colors, class meetings and working out designs for the Class Banner. Due to the popularity and merit of so large a number of our young men, it was hard to choose two for the offices of President and Vice-President. Joe Pichacolas finally gained the first honor and Robert Wagner the second. Viola Purnell received the trustworthy position of Class Secretary, with Alice McGill as Assistant. Now, as we are nearing the last round in the ladder of our High School life we can name the following as having achieved high enough honor in Athletics to have received "T's" for their efforts: Eva Abromitis, Myrtle Yermal, Mary Yermal, Hubbard Allen, Charles Folk, Dare Heydrick, Gordon Kistler, Sidney McMichael, Hower Moyer, Vincent Norris, Joe Pichacolas, Fritz Nardini, Donald Rubin and Carl Rubin.

The deceased at one time was a member of our class, but dis- continued his studies at the end of the Freshman year on account of illness. Due to long illnesses, Gladys Wright, Rheba Shain and Myrtle Yost were missed sorely from their classes at various times during the year. After good wishes, prayers, hard work, tears, long practices, and two years of win- ning the Championship in Interclass Basketball, the Junior Class hereby regretfully admits that this year the class of '30 has a better team. But, there is next year yet ahead of us, and also a new gym. Who can tell what it may mean to us? LYRIC up With apologies to john Lyly Gothie and our dear Halkyard played At matching nickels, Willard paid. He stakes his watch, his tie and collar, His "Stegies" ring, and every dollarg Loses them too, then down he throws His Sunday shoes, the hose From off his feet fwe all know howj g With these the sweat from off his brow, At last the goggles from his eyes, Jack won,-Willard sore did rise. Willard, has Jack done this to you? Oh, Garsh! Let,s think of something new. NOTICE TO ALL READERS! At last he has fallen! The womanhater of the class has succumbed to the charms of the opposite sex. "Speed', who at first belied his name is at last coming up to expec- tations and is progressing rapidly. Isn't that right, Kit? Miss Steigerwalt: "And now, what did the Dutch contribute to American life as it is today?,' Sheitrumph: "Old Dutch Cleanser? Miriam was hurrying thru' the hall, To be contrary, her pencil dropped: "Oh Hel-en,', was her ejaculation. As luck had it, Miss Freeh happened to be coming along. Fegley: "Alice, can you tell me a good definition for 'sordid,' or use it in a sentence?" Castator: "The other day, Dare knocked Pitchie down, and he sore did rise!" It puzzles us that Parnell thinks that Pepys could have written a "dairy." But then "Soup', said the same man spent all his money on dresses for himself. Who can tell? "That's a dirty dig," said Byron as he shoveled into the grease. -' ix- ' 1 f i f 14525 hte 'Zhi' 'VW fwfr all i if. x4A4a ' ' Li fwfr: Page Se-zwnty-fifve , , rg! fx ff! 1?

H. S. with colors changed from green to red. This step from Freshmen to Sophomores, was gladly accepted, and had a marked effect on our newly acquired dignity and order. The class, in two years, has thus far established quite a record in all school activities and has a promising future. Its members have influence and importance in prevailing sports, in debates, which through the eiort of Miss Steigerwalt and the faculty have been enthusiastically participated in by those of a progressive and literary mind, in social organizations, which are prominent because they offer diversion from the general school routine, and in a partial control of Student Government. Concerning the sport realm, the Sophomore Class is not lacking athletic material or supporters, for which reasons we stand conspicuous and foremost. Our all around athlete is Joe Rhubright who received fame not only on the gridiron but also as a basketball star. But, Joe doesn't stand alone, for there are other unsung boys and girls who helped carry the Spirit of '30 through. It is these athletes, who were instru- , ment1al,,either by material work or inspiration?mggmplishing Our, gywiwff winning of the Inter-Class Basketball Championship. This meritorious work was the result of labor and co-operation of our boys and girls, defining in a symbolic nature, the honor and spirit of the Class and Alma Mater. Besides football and basketball, the Sophomores are well represented and have prestige in baseball and track events. Throughout the year order was maintained through continual class harmony and policing in the form of Proctorship, direct subordination to the Student Council. The Proctors were chosen from the Sophomore assembly rooms and were represented at headquarters by members of the Council, William Yost and Albert Kershner. The Proctors for the year as elected from the various sections are as follows: Albert Kershner and John Hartwig from Mr. Stine's assembly, Franklin Metzgar from Mr. Jewell,s, Fred Brown from Miss McMonigal's and William Yost from Miss Noonan's. A reputation was also made in the class by those who took part in editing the Sophomore Notes published in the weekly High School News of the Courier. The reporters for the year were Olive Tennant, Emily Biltz, Kitty Fogel, Harry Feather, Louise Kellner and John Rhubright. During the year Dorothy Erbe, Charles Kacheleris and Ida Lewis have discontinued school as Sophomores, for some reason or other, and receive our sincere wishes for success in whatever vocation they have chosen. Since we still however, have prospects for a large number of graduates, let us strive to materialize that vision of attainment- upperclassman, and of being in the future, real citizens.

The chief one is interrogation and doubt. Some of the questions fas a result of too much thinkingj make us wonder if: Columbus could discover a theater where you can buy choice seats? Washington could make himself a modern social success without a lie? Hercules would be able to open a train window? Virgil would possibly receive an A in Latin? Radio announcers seek fame by broadcasting with pebbles in their mouths, as did Demosthenes? Hannibal could cross Fifth Avenue at Forty-second Street? According to "Modern Historyu Jack Eva says that Napoleon retired to St. Helena after Judge Landis convicted him of throwing the Battle of Waterloo. - Besides, he states that while reading History he found that George V is king of England. George V what? Some of the Sophomores said that: They would like to know Why the Hi-Y's are high. The Wenzel sisters as musician's daughters, top the scales. Emily Blitz is a philanthropist, always giving away a piece of her mind. When Koch got drunk on water he must have been in a boat. When Louise Kellner sings people clap their hand-over their ears. Bill Dunn is a bachelor that made up his mind that he can't make up his mind. Gerber a so-called cave-man, has the cave in his head. Sex appeal is green, preferably with a yellow-back and the U. S. Government seal. Pee Wee Heymen gets so many thoughts at once, he should incorporate. On December 14, Bernice Garrigues coming from the William Penn H. S. of Philadelphia, became a member of the class of 1930.

The one type to escape house cleaning, the other with the object in mind of getting off on holidays. fThe third class, composed of the studious, forms a minority and aren't considered as important in school activitiesj. Seven Modern Wonders of the School: 1-Actual work in the New High School. ,2-Tennant as a model for the bashful, weaker sex. 3-Elly Shaeffer becoming a woman-hater. 4-Milius' walking record to the Main Room. 5-Bert's hanging garden fof chewing gumj in Biology Class. 6-Skeet Metzgefs folding leg. 7--Companionate engagement of Fred and Betty. The class is proud to have in its midst so distinguished a scholar as Tillie Wall. We are sure that "Tillie,,' with the aid of somebodyls brains, would make a fine lawyer. The other day she presented these reasons for being excused from school after '4:15: 1-If not for my dear Mother's sake for old times sake. 2-Furthermore, grandfather broke his second arm while pole-vaulting. 3-If for no other reason you and me, y'might say have been brought up together in Room 8 after 4:15. This year much interest has been shown by the class both in the sectional debates and on the main High School team. We are represented on the latter by Kathryn Folk, and Emily Biltz who are surely bright prospects for the future. if I- I nf -7 lf" Li - " ' :L oi J-' 344304 Dfw! Viva! I v 7 rf 7 W' 7 WA W x 4 A 4 .

H. S., two hundred and thirty strong, the largest class in the history of the school, and, as we then thought, the most frightened. Our first day as Freshmen will always be remembered as one of the most embarrassing of our lives. We suffered the jeers of the upper classmen, the horror of getting into the wrong classrooms, and many other humiliations common to all Freshmen. This, however, did not last long, we became accustomed to the school routine, and our frightened feeling gave way to one of pride-pride because of the fact that we were at last members of good old T. H. S. The Get-to-gether party was the first social event of the season that made us feel ourselves a part of the school. A large number of Freshmen would be seen at all the athletic events. We responded to every activity of the school, in fact, we were proud of our Alma Mater and helped to support her in all her undertakings. But we patron- ized not only these many social events, for you can find the names of Freshmen in all the athletic and musical organizations of the schoolg and, most important of all We studied,-studied hard on the first rung of the ladder reaching to a higher education. Thus we spent our year as Freshmen. Many dropped out along the way, being forced to discontinue their studies for various reasonsg to these we wish a successful future, hoping they will be able to make a name for themselves in the work they have undertaken. We hope the ones who are planning to continue their studies will return next year, resolved to make their work one degree better than this year, and so keep on, that at the end of our four years in High School, we may look back, and see four years well spent.

Hartman QIDGYQDNGF Coach Robert N. Hartman, known to his teams as "Fighting Bob," has gained wide fame for the success of teams coached by him during his three years here. Devel- oping teams noted for their hard and clean playing ability from green material is a job that he has done well. Hart- man was an athlete himself before becoming our Coach. He played basketball for three years at Selinsgrove High School, and at Susquehanna University he proved his worth and versatility by playing Varsity football for four years, earning three letters. Thus by personal example and from his own experi- ence he can teach his teams better because of a first-hand knowledge of his subject. No one who has played under his ability, and the records set by his teams are unspoken tributes to his worth. He has lifted the name of Tama- qua High School to a position of State-wide prominence in the athletic world due to the fighting spirit which he 1 instils into his warriors, and they in turn have made the name of the "Blue Avalanche" one to be respected. The welfare of the teams is an important matter to Hartman, and he gladly seizes upon anything which will improve them. For this reason he spent his vacation at Bucknell University at the summer school of coaching, held by the greatest football mentor in the United States, Knute Rockne. There he received expert instruction in the latest twists of football. This well illustrates a spirit of progressiveness and a feeling that his job deserves the best he can give it. , His versatility needs no enlarging upon, as it is best expressed by the splendid records piled up by his teams. One championship team and two runners-up in one season is an impressive total, made more so by unforeseen obstacles which more than once have injured his smooth-working machine. "Bob', is not just plain "coach," a figure to be obeyed because he is boss, but he is a real pal to the athletes, who obey him more because of their respect for him than for his position. So successful has been his reign and his popularity so great, that the school would be hard pressed to find a coach who could successfully fill his place in the event of his departure.

Whetstonc CAPTAIN MANDY WHETSTONE, '28 Quarterbaek 5 ft. 5 130 lbs. "Egger" certainly proved to be an able and fighting leader. Whenever things would begin to "look dark" for the team Mandy would gather the boys about him and instil that old spirit into them that brought them through the season with such an unblemished record. Mandy is an all-round player. He drop-kicks, passes, runs the ends, and, most of all, he is the brains of the team. Undoubt- edly "Egger" will be heard of more in collegiate football circles in the near fu- ture. , "Skeet" was the punter of the team. Some of' his punts reminded one of Lindbergh's i'Spirit of St. Iiouisf' because they looked as though they never Would come down. In the Blythe game Skeet kicked one about seventy-live yards, and a fellow who can kick like that in his Sophomore year will have no trouble whatever in earning a position on any college team in the coun- Rl'1ul:rigl1t Gilmer DANK GILTNER, '28 Right End 6 ft. 160 lbs. "Dank" was a great factor in Tama- qua High's impregnable line. Always a sure tackle, he was harder to get around than the Chinese Wall. He was named as All-Regional End in 1926, and proved his right to that position by becoming a terror to his opponents. Breaking up plays behind the lines or under punts, as Well as being an able interferer, he was rightly considered one of the State's best. "Dank" should give a good ac- count of himself in intercollegiate foot- ball. '4 s4A4, Page One Hundred and Five 35.

"Pinkyl' is the type of player who seldom stars individually, but is always strong in team- work co-operatively. He is a triple-threat man, performing everything with great exact- ness. He was the main cog in the machinery that produced the double and triple passes in the backfield. Pinky was a demofn on the defense as well as a reliable interference man. We look for him in some col- lege line-up next year. Weaver GORDY WEAVER 28 Right Taclzlf 5 ft. 4 155 lbs. tAbie'i is the Knute Rockne type of guard-short, fast and heavy- set. He was by far the best guard in High School ranks in the coal regions during the past season. "Mecca" got more tackles and broke up more plays than any two guards his size that ever played on the local field. Should "Abie" go away to college, as we think he will, he should find no trouble in earning a regular birth on any first eleven. Purnell 5 ft. 11 162 lbs. 'tGordy" was one of the shock absorbers of the line. His terrific charging and breaking up of en- emy plays while they were in the making was noticeable in every game. "Terrence" was always a hard worker, and whenever he got that ferocious look upon his face the enemy surely did suffer. Gor- dy had a tough break when he had his knee hurt inn the last game of the season, but we hope it will not prevent him from going out for football at whatever college he may attend next fall.

"Sap" was another member of the famous "Four Piano Players." Dare, a triple-threat man, was the player upon whom the team depended when it needed a few yards for a first down or a touchdown. He surely could hit that line. He was picked as the best fullback in the regiown this year, so watch him in the future. PAT VALENTINE, V28 Center 5 ft. 10 153 lbs. "Pat" is the kind of player who doesnit know the word t'quit," or if he did know it he never be- lieved it had anything to do with football. In several games "Pat- ty's" face could not be seen for blood, but he would not be taken out because of his love for the game. Pat would play in or out of the line as the enemy's position in our territory would necessitate. When in the line he would smash up the enemy's plays, and when out of the line he was continually knocking down or intercepting their passes. Much is expected of Pat in his pursuit of the game. Pichacolas Valentine JOE PICHACOLAS, '29 Left Tackle 5 ft. lil 160 lbs. "Pitchy" is the sort of player that Gil Dobie considers an ideal tackle. Joe started the season as a halfback, but was moved up to a tackle position. The change seemed to benefit him, as he smashed up all en- emy plays that ever came his way. Joe is a junior and still has another year to don the moleskins in behalf of Tama- qua High. ff, ' ,, .ff --3 ' .4 manga f . f 1 1 .f ff -' '. ,. Al,.

Narclini Rubin FRITZ NARDINI, V29 CARL RUBIN, y29 Left End Left guard 5 ft. 3 135 lbs. 5 ft. 11 210 lbs. "Butch" was the heaviest man on the team, but his weight did not lessen his "Freddo" might have been the small- est member of the team, but what he lacked in size he made up for in his fighting spirit. Fritz is a hard tackler, and when he hit the opposing backs he made every ounce of his weight felt. His fighting spirit, together with his wonderful playing the past season, led the boys to elect him captain for next year. speed in running interference. Rubin unquestionably made the opposition feel sick when he hit them. "Butch" still has another year to tear apart the foes of T. H. S.

The highest praises should be bestowed upon these warriors and their mentor, "Fightin' Bob" Hartman, the man who put Tamaqua High on the football map of Pennsylvania by producing an undefeated eleven. At the begin- ning of the fall term about thirty-five candidates answered the call for the first practice. Of these thirty-Eve, thirty "stuck it outv until the end of the season in an attempt to bring glory to their Alma Mater. That their efforts were not fruitless has already been proved by the record they have hung up for themselves. Next to the tireless work of Coach Hartman, the big reason for the success of the team was the co-operation of its members. There was no individual "star," but just eleven good players "in there," one as good as the other and every one of them fighting for the good "Ole Blue and White." The local team won nine games, garnering a total of 287 points, while the enemy had plenty of trouble in collecting the small sum of 13-seven points being scored by Summit Hill and six by Susquehanna Reserves, both in the final minutes of the game and via the air route. The success of Bob Hartman's regime is attested to by the following records set up by the teams under his guidance in the last three years: Pts. Scored Year Won Lost Tied H.S.

GABRIEIJS H. S.-0 The moleskin bearers of Tamaqua High opened the season by an easy victory over St. Gabriells High, of Hazleton, conquerors of Shenandoah. - No longiruns fea- tured the game, as the team just played straight football. The scoring was shared among Heydrick, Purnell and Whetstoneg Purnell getting two touchdowns, Heydrick one, while Whetstone added the extra points. A fifth touchdown was scored by Gilt- ner, who recovered a fumble over the goal line, but Referee Griffith called it a touch- back. TAMAQUA-3 65 LANSFORD-0 Tamaqua High completely outplayed her traditional rivals from the Valley in all points of the game. Although it was supposed to have been one of the "big games" of the year, the subs played almost half of the game. The two local guards, Mednick and Rubin, each scored a touchdown. Other scorers were Whetstone, Purnell, Heydrick and Allen. TAMAQUA-135 MAHANOY CITY-0 The Blue and White gladiators defeated the big Maroon team from Mahanoy City in a well-played game at the latter place. It was the first Blue and White victory over Mahanoy City in years. Only once did Mahanoy City threaten to score. That was when they recovered a fumbled punt on the locals' fifteen-yard line. But the town boys' defense was too much for the up-county lads. Whetstone and Rhubright did the scoring, each getting one touchdown. "Man- dy" added the extra point. .1 qw 14' E., J e 19 L fi MIL!

Three of the touchdowns were the result of steady marches of line plunging, while the fourth was the result of a fifteen-yard pass to Giltner, which put the ball in scoring position. Whetstone carried it over. The other scoring was three points after touchdowns by Whetstone and a safety scored by Giltner, who tackled Zangle back of the enemy's goal line. TAMAQUA-185 SUMMIT HILL-7 Tamaqua High won its "big game" of the year when the local warriors defeated Summit Hill before the biggest crowd of the season. The game was hard fought all the way through, both teams playing a wonder- ful brand of football. The first score of the game resulted from a fumbled punt that was recovered by Nardini on Summit Hill's ten-yard line. Rhubright, on a double pass, crossed the goal line behind perfect interference. The second score resulted from Purnell's interception of an enemy pass on their fifteen-yard line. After several line plunges, Heydrick carried it over. The last score came after Whetstone put the ball in scoring position by a forty- yard run. Purnell carried it over. Summit Hill scored one minute before the end of the game on a forward pass to Kastrava. TAMAQUA-5 85 BLYTHE TWP.-o Showing their best offensive form of the season, the powerful Blue and White gridiron machine ran roughshod over Blythe Township on the local field. It was the biggest score of the season for the local scholastics. .M wwe W J- -man 1 HM FW -UW fa".

For the first two quarters the teams were deadlocked, but Tamaqua had the edge on the boys from the other end of the county. In the early part of the third quarter Giltner recovered a fumble on Minersville's forty-yard line. After about six line plays Heydrick crashed thru guard for a score. Whetstone accounted for the other seven points. He got his touchdown on a triple pass play after running ten yards. TAMAQUA-S03 PORTER TWP.-0 Tamaqua High scored her eighth victory of the season and fourteenth consecu- tive one, when Porter Township fell before the powerful Blue and White eleven. From the beginning it was only a question of how many points Captain Whet- stone and his mates would score. Everyone played a bang-up game, but the open field running of Rhubright stood out. Three times the Sophomore halfback raced for a touchdown. He made runs of eighty-five, seventy-five and forty yards to score. The other three backs scored, as did Allen, a sub. TAMAQUA-449 SUSQUEHANNA RESERVES-6 Tamaqua High closed the most successful football season in history when the Blue and White machine scored a 44-6 victory over the Susquehanna Reserves on the local field. There was nothing to the battle that was staged. From the start the superiority of the town scholastics was seen. The battle was the last for Captain Whetstone, Mednick, Weaver, Purnell, Gilt- ner and Valentine, all regulars. Four of the six named scored, Whetstone, Purnell and Valentine getting touchdowns, while Giltner added an extra point on a forward pass. Gordon Weaver, a tackle, was helped from the field in the third quarter with an injury to his right knee.

All four of the defeats came on foreign floors and the team holds the distinction of having been undefeated on its home floor the Armory. ---: Taken individually, this was perhaps the tallest squad that ever Ktrod the cedars" for Tamaqua High School. Six of the eleven topped the six-foot mark, while the other five were close behind 1 them. ., , fl , F M? The bright spot in the seas0n's results was the work of the reserves. Many a close game was due to their strength, and when, with six games remaining on the schedule, they were called upon to take the places of the original Varsity, they came through with a "bang', and scored six consecutive vic- tories. This was the result Of Mr. Hartman's foresight in working the entire squad into all the games, and it is to him that much of the credit for this successful season is due. With such a showing and record, we may look for great things in basketball next year. The players making up the "Varsity', and to whom letters have been awarded were: Weaver fCaptainJ, Whetstone, Giltner, Valentine fManagerj, Pichacolas, Hey- drick, Rhubright, Allen, Norris, McMichael, Moyer and Kistler. NESQUEHONING AT TAMAQUA H fDecember 2, 1927j In the season's opener the Blue and White of town waved triumphantly over the Red and Gold banner of Nesquehoning, to the tune of 30-9. Nesquehoning presented a small team which had no chance against the big squad the Tams threw on the floor. They were held to one lone field goal, coming in the last few minutes of play. This was scored by Malcuskey, Who, by virtue of this goal and two fouls, led his team in scoring. Pichacolas led in points for the Tams, with twelve to his credit. This game brought out the reserve strength of Tamaqua, which was afterwards to be more thoroughly tried. ' TAMAQUA AT COAL TOWNSHIP QDecember 9, 19271 Tamaqua opened its league season with a victory over Coal Township, score 22-17. The game was fast and exciting, and the outcome was always in doubt until the last quarter, when the Blue and White forged ahead. Rhubright was high scorer, having registered three field goals in a row during the first three minutes, while San- ders starred for the Township. The score at half-time showed the Tams to have a lead of four points, the count being 13-9. A 172244041 .V , . . .

Al- though the score was one-sided, the action was fast throughout the game, and the Tams had to work to get all their points. Tamaqua,s guards put up a "whale" of a game and held the fast-cutting Shamokin team to one field goal, garnered in the last twenty sec- onds from beyond the foul mark. Norris led our boys in scoring with four field goals, while Albright scored the "Greyhounds, " only basket. The tally at half-time showed the score to be 6-1, the lowest score registered in any one half during the year. ASHLAND AT TAMAQUA fDecember 21, 19272 Tamaqua's second league game at home was marked by slow action and poor shooting on both sides. The game established a low scoring record for the season, the final tally being only 15-9. There was no outstanding star or scorer on our squad, but Towe scored five of Ashland,s nine points. Tamaqua led Ashland 7 points to 3 at the end of the first half, and outscored them 8-6 in the second half. ALUMNI VS. TAMAQUA fDecember 29, 1927j This was one of the fastest and best-played games of the year. The "old grads" had plenty of pep and speed, and the Varsity had an uphill fight to beat them, 28-16. The Alumni lined up with Norris, '27, Welker, '22, Bonner, '25, and Zimmerman, '25, forwards, Kraft, '25, center, and Miller, '25, Purnell, '22, and Giltner, '25, guards. They showed teamwork that kept the Varsity always "on the jump." The score at half-time was 13-9. TAMAQUA AT SHENANDOAH fjanuary 6, 1928, Tamaqua's first league defeat came at the hands of Shenandoah's "Blue Devils,', score 46-32. The Tams, although putting up a good floor game, were way off in shoot- ing, and Shenandoah took advantage of this "off night" and registered 46 points. Dou- gal, their center, was high scorer of the evening with 22 points, while Giltner tallied 15 for the locals. Shenandoah led 24-10 at the end of the first half. TAMAQUA AT READING Uanuary 7, 1928j This was one of the best games the "Blue Avalanche" played during the season. Jumping from a small court at Shenandoah the night before, it made a wonderful showing against Reading on the Armory floor. After leading Reading at half-time, 17-12, and keeping the lead until the fourth quarter, the good work went for naught when four of the starting five were banished on fouls. This proved to be the turning point of the game, and although the game was , closely contested, Reading won out by coming from behind and getting a lead of 11 points.

The game was characterized bv poor passing and shooting on Tamaqua's side, while Freeland came from behind in the last half to win out. The boys plainly showed the effects of the previous games and seemed listless in their floor game. This defeat proved costly in the final accounting for the league title. MT. CARMEL AT TAMAQUA Uanuary 13, 19281 The Blue and White came back in fine style on January 13 to win from a big, strong Mt. Carmel five, 31-19. The Tams put up a Hne passing game which the foot- ball champs of the State could not break up, and tallied 31 points while the "Red Tor- nadov was getting 19. The excellent guarding by Tamaqua was a feature of this game. Time and again our two husky guards took the ball out of Mt. Carmel's hands and started it up the floor, where their quick passes to the forwards made many a goal. ,Whetstone led the scorers with 11 points. TAMAQUA AT MAHANOY CITY Uanuary 20, 1928j Tamaqua lost its big chance of winning the league title by losing a hard-fought game to Mahanoy City, score 42 to 24. The score is not suggestive of the battle which the game really was. The first half ended with Mahanoy City but seven points ahead, and the Tams had high hopes of victory. But Mahanoy City during the half must have been instilled with the spirit of its Coach, johnny Goepfort, and came back to hold the Tams to seven points while they garnered eighteen themselves. Our team put up a great fight and really outplayed Mahanoy City in floor work, but as in previous games, failure to "hit the cords" proved costly, and another game went on the wrong side of the ledger. , COAL TOWNSHIP AT TAMAQUA Uanuary 27, 1928j Tamaqua High defeated Coal Township High for the second time, by the score 26-22. The game was fast and "crammed" with action, and the Tams won out by but four points. At half time they led by S points, the score being 16-11, but in the second half Strunk, by fine shooting, carried the Township five up to a tie, which was not broken until only two minutes were left to play. Whetstone led the Blue and White basketeers with 14 points, while Strunk registered 9 for the Township. TAMAQUA AT SUSQUEHANNA QFebruary 1, 1928j The "Blue Avalanche" bowled over the Susquehanna University Reserves at Selinsgrove on the above date, 38-28. The game brought out the Tams' reserve strength in the play of Allen, Norris and McMichael, who led in the scoring. The game was exciting and well-played, and the Tams can be proud of their showing. 34" '. . W V If' 2'-fy 11- ' , TT' -'fr 1' ' " 3 ,I .fa ' ' - mf, 24. ,ggi , Q f, ,L f - 1 0, ,- .9 fy, , I Q, .

This quintet played fine basketball to come through with a 26-23 win over a much improved "Greyhound" five. Although handicapped by inexperience and the strange floor, they conquered these obstacles, and proved their true worth. TAMAQUA AT ASHLAND QFebruary 10, 192 81 Tamaqua scored its tenth victory of the season at Ashland on the above date, defeating the High School team of that place by the score of 39-18. The outcome of the game was never in doubt, the Tams leading from the opening toss-up to the final gun. SHENANDOAH AT TAMAQUA QFebruary 17, 19285 Shenandoah,s "Blue Devils," one of Tamaqua's oldest rivals, met defeat at the hands of the Blue and White warriors of town, to the tune of 35-23. This game was one of the fastest seen on the Armory court this year, and it was only after a hard and game struggle that the "Avalanche" won out. The teamwork during this game was some of the finest during the year, and showed the real strength of the Tams. FREELAND AT TAMAQUA Qfiebruary 24, 19281 The "Blue Avalanche" gained sweet revenge for its former defeat at the hands of the "Midgets," and on the above date flashed a pretty offensive to score 39 points while holding Freeland to 11. From the start of the game it was merely a matter of with how many points the Tams would be leading at the final Whistle. The boys showed their proficiency on the Armory floor by beating this snappy little outfit by 28 points, and can well be proud of their play. TAMAQUA AT MT. CARMEL QMarch 2, 1928, Tamaqua defeated Mt. Carmel, the "Red Tornado," by the score 35-25. This was the second victory of the Blue and White over the football champs of the State, and well-deserved it was. The Tams jumped ahead at the start and were never headed. Mt. Carmel several times came close to the Tams, but lacked the punch to forge ahead, and when the final gun barked it found the "Avalanche', leading by 10 points. A .

The score gives evidence of the closeness of the game, but it cannot bring out the fierce, hard fighting and playing of both teams. An inspired Blue and White team took the floor against a big, strong, confident Mahanoy outfit, and at the end of a hectic forty minutes emerged at the long end of the count. Norris gave a wonderful exhibition of shooting, and at the end of the first quarter had tallied 13 points himself. During the next three quarters he added 5 points, swelling his total to 18, which gave him high- scoring honors for the night. But no one star could be picked out of the glorious playing that night, and it was a TEAM tha t gave Mahanoy City its first defeat of the season. 'QE- ummvggvwu 'Z'-' 'If ff- .

NooNAN Ni F Student Manager - EVA ABRoMrr1s I it With only three victories out of ten games, the 1927-28 sea- son for the female athletes on the basketball court was truly a , 5 if 4 filure-but a failure Worth the price when one considers the des- ,' . f tined victories for next season. An entirely new squad, with the L U I exception of last year's Varsity center, was forced to open the season. It fought gamely under such odds, but it wasn't enough- 4 for they lacked experience. 'i il During the first third of the season Captain Eva Abromitis A filled her former position of center for a team composed chiefly of H 9'- ,JM last year's substitutes. This arrangement resulted in a good de- ' fense but a rather weak offense. For though the forwards had ' lots of fight and were good passers, it was their inexperience that scored against them in forced competition with more experienced Amazons. This difficulty resulted in a shifting of players. With the transference of Cap- tain Eva to forward, the offense was strengthened somewhat, but it wasn't until the last third of the season that the girls Hnally hit their stride. The discovery of a crack running-mate for Eva in a Freshman guard caused the desired strengthening of the offense, and from then on the losses were in the minority. The features of the season were the Alumni game, a tie game lost in a hard- fought play-oifg the Schuylkill Haven game, the first victory of the year, the Mt. Carmel game, won on their court after a previous defeat by them on our own court, and the Port Carbon game, won by a glorious margin. The two crushing defeats of the season were received at the hands of Freeland and Coal Township teams-probably the two best in the State. And they struck during the experimental period! Eva Abromitis and Anna Paulonis, guards, Eleanor Pfiel, Viola Purnell and Myrtle Yermal, occupying the center section positions, formed the aggregation which represented Tamaqua High on the court for the major part of the season. However, there were many transferences, and we find "Bubby', Pfiel success- fully jumping center, Eva Abromitis and "Pinky" Purnell working in as side centers, and Myrtle Yermal alternating at center and side center toward the close of the season. During this time Beatrice Barnisky, Olive Tenant, Emily Biltz and Anette Williston played at guard positions and did their bit in holding their opponents' scores down to a respectable margin. In several games Alice Castator and Betty Williston handled the offense in fine manner, rolling up quite a few points for our scores, while Mary Fogel, Eleanor Wagner and Constance Haiges took good care of the middle court. 1.?

The Inter-Class League The Inter-class League this year aroused great enthusiasm and rivalry among the various classes. From the opening toss-up in the first game to the final whistle in the play-off, there was not an idle moment. The teams all appeared to be evenly matched and the standing all through the season was closely contested. The Seniors, although leading the legaue all through the play, lost out in the final few games, and the Juniors and Sophomores, tied practically the entire season, forged ahead to finish the league season in a tie for first place. In the final play-off for the title, the Sophomores de- feated the Juniors, 22-16. The standing of the teams at the close of the season was as follows: Won Lost Pct.

Trackff-1927 During the latter part of February the first call for track candidates issued by Coach Patterson was answered by 35 recruits, each eager to win a place on the team that had won the County Championship the previous year and which had the makings of another championship team because of the fact that only one had been lost by gradua- tion. Following the Interclass meet, the squad was cut to the following, who composed the Varsity for the year of 1927: Captain W. Welsh, Reese, Schlegel, Weaver, Allen, V. Norris, Griesemer, C. Rubin, L. Welsh, Scheirer, Swoyer, Kochenberger, McMichael, D. Rubin, J. Gothie, D. Schlegel, Koch, D. Gothie, and Schaeffer. Donald Gerhard served at the helm of the team as manager, and that he served well can be seen by the attractive schedule that the team went thru. 711 F21 VW 415573 H H -707 HW' lm x A A 4 1 Page One Hundred and Tfwenty-.fix I E ff ,gd W , V-Xffspv uf VM , 1 ll A l ill QU 23' l V5 ' ' .4 G.. !-F?V's,x it I928 srmnx H H 1 "iffy I v I 4 w 'I E 'Q 1' 'n n' 'A n M L H Q' lrjgmf MHA! K V Tamaquafs Championship Relay Team During the track season of 1927, the relay team carrying the colors of the Blue and White composed a quartet of the four fastest runners ever turned out by any school in Schuylkill County. This team has the record of winning every relay race in which it participated. They were victors in the Penn Relays against some of the best teams in the State. In the Anthracite meet they defeated the pick of the Anthracite, and in the County meet, which they entered as underdogs because of Pottsville's re- markable team, they were again victorious in the phenomenal time of 3:37, breaking the old relay record by ten seconds.

Besides run- ning on the record-smashing relay team, he has won a place second only to Pennsylvania's champion half-miler. Winnie during the past year made it a habit of breaking records, in the County, Anthracite and District meets. This is a slate full of achievements enough to satisfy any athlete. Winnie has yet this track season in which to gain the goal he has set for himself-State half-mile champion-and he has the confidence of the school behind him that he will make good. "Jack', Reese was the "speed" boy of the team, on whom depended the finish of the race. The word' speed does not do credit to Jack, for any time that points were needed or the team was behind, Jack was there with something faster than speed. That is Jack,s greatest accomplishment, always steady and ready to do his best. Besides being anchor man on the relay, Jack was also a point win- ner in the dashes, as his records show. "jim,' Schlegel, the old reliable lead-off man of the team! To Jim, although he has never won much personal honor, belongs the distinc- tion of never failing to secure the "pole" for the team. Jim is always in the race and never fails to give all he has. His biggest moment was his winning of the 440-yard dash at the annual District meet this past year, a record which speaks for itself. .W-I-H: x A A 4 1 - Page One Hundred and T-wenty-eight gif 4.4, l-' l"4l l928 srnmx ,w 1 1 'D X S ,ri rl '., s I, L' 4' ' X Vks v A 1 ,. :.

At the annual County meet he won the 440 in record-breaking time, and then ten minutes later ran his usual steady race in the relay to help the team break the record. David Thomas: "Davy,,' the man who takes care of the aches and pains of the team! Ever since track has been inaugurated fand to Davy belongs some of the honor of bringing track to our schoolj, Davy has had charge of the physical condition of the team, and has always kept them in perfect condition. Be- sides his work with the track squad, Davy is always on the job, whatever the sport may be, as all followers of Tamaqua teams know. Mr. Patterson: "Pat," as the boys are fond of calling him, has the job of teaching the team how to run. That he knows his business can readily be seen by the success of the track team. Although Pat has only been with us for a short time, he has won many friends due to his active interest in sports and his pleasing personality. With Mr. Patterson as coach of the track team for the present season, we can look forward to another championship re- turned to T. H.

INTER-CLASS TRACK MEET For the second consecutive year the Class of '27, by scoring heavily in the track events, won the annual Inter-Class Track Meet. The Class of '28, with 31 points, fin- ished second, while the Class of '29, with 29 points, and the Class of '30, with 3 points, finished third and fourth respectively.

League Track Meet at Selinsgrove on May 8, the Blue and White retained her title as League Track Champion by defeating the pick of the Anthracite. By winning six first places out of eleven events, the Blue and White was able to gather forty-five points, compared with thirty-seven collected by Mahanoy City, who finished second. Mt. Carmel, Shenandoah and Ashland finished third, fourth and fifth, respectively. In the first event of the program the dope was upset when Reese was nosed out for first place in the 100-yard dash by Walincius of Mahanoy City. The Welsh brothers then shifted the score in favor of Tamaqua when they scored six points in the half-mile-"Winnie" winning and "Mush" finishing fourth. Griesmer and D. Schlegel raised the score three points by finishing third and fourth in the broad jump. Then W. Welsh came thru with a victory in the mile by a record-smashing drive, and the meet was practically decided when Reese and Weaver finished first and second in the 220. Allen was nosed out of first place in the pole vault, but he raised the score three points by finishing second. Weaver, then, by a quick getaway, led the crowd all the way and won the 440-yard dash. Rubin boosted the score by finishing third in the shot put, and then Allen won the high jump and McMichael tied for fourth place. A medley relay team, composed of Reese, Weaver, Schlegel and W. Welsh, easily won this event by over forty yards. DISTRICT NUMBER 1 On May 14 the team journeyed to Lehigh University to compete with the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association Track and Field Champions of Dis- trict No. 1. The team made a wonderful showing, winning third place with 12 points in the meet, which was won by Bethlehem with 22 points. Weaver scored the first point for the Blue and White when he finished fifth in the 220-yard dash after a beautiful burst of speed in the last 100 yards. J. Schlegel then climbed to the pin- nacle of fame when in the 440 he secured the lead at the start, and by running a steady race managed to keep this lead all the way around to win in the time of 55 1-S seconds. W. Welsh, competing in the 880, took the lead at the gun to avoid being caught in the crowd of 24 starters, and ran his usual race to win the District Title for the second con- secutive time, in the time of 2.07 4-5. The Blue and White medley relay team, without the presence of Schlegel and W. Welsh, who were not allowed to compete in this event, finished fifth, and gave the Blue and White another point.

Welsh, winners of the 440 and 880-yard cham- pionships of District 1, journeyed to Bucknell to compete against the pick of the State for State honors. Jim, running the 440, for the first time in his High School career got off to a bad start, the lead obtained by the others Was too much, and Jim Was forced to contentuhimself with sixth place, a very good showing considering the fact that he was against the pick of the State. Winnie, in the 880, Was more fortunate, coming from behind in the last 100 yards to finish second to Bloor of Barnesboro High, the winner, in the time of 2.03. Winnie broke his own record in making the time he did for second place. COUNTY MEET On June 9, competing against the best of the County, in which were included the star cinder men of nine schools, the Blue and White, by a steady uphill ight, man- aged to retain her title as County Champion by winning the meet with a total of 3721 points. Pottsville, who surprised the County by beating Coaldale, who was doped to win, garnered 292, points, while Coaldale scored 26. The other teams shared 27 points among them. Tamaqua took the lead at the start when the Welsh brothers gathered six points in the mile run, W. Welsh winning and L: Welsh finishing fourth. In this event Welsh broke the old record, held by L. Welsh, by fifteen seconds, setting the time at 4.49. While the mile was being run, the high jump was completed and Allen, who was doped to win, could do no better than tie for third place. The Blue and White picked up another point when Reese finished fourth in the 100-yard dash. W. Welsh then raised the score five points by winning the half-mile. Griesmer raised the Blue and White score three points by finishing second with a jump of over 19 feet. Reese boosted the amount three points by coming from behind in the 220-yard dash to finish second to Laigon, the high individual scorer of the day. Tamaqua failed to place in the shot put, but Weaver broke the record in the 440 when, with a beautiful burst of speed, he crossed the tape a winner in the time of 53.9. The Blue and White, at this time M point behind the winner, came thru in the relay with a thrilling victory in 3.37. Allen nosed out Yaag of Pottsville for second place in the pole vault, and Norris finished fourth, giving the Blue and White the County Championship for the second consecutive year.

I EASTON On June 11 the Blue and White squad of only 11 men, due to the lack of facilities for transportation, and without the services of Weaver, who had been injured in the County Meet, journeyed to Easton to compete with the Easton High Track Team in a dual meet. Unfortunately, two meets in three days proved too much for them, and lacking their "old pep" they were forced to bow to the tune of 47-43. Allen was the star of the day, Winning both the pole vault and high jump. Captain Welsh was defeated in both his distances, but the time in both events was slower than any time ever made by the Blue and White Captain. K. OF C.

Before the game started Paul Neifert was elected captain for the baseball season. A good-sized crowd attended, although the weather was very bad for baseball. Tamaqua had one big inning, but after that it was a pitchers' battle, with Neifert allowing but four hits, while his opponent was touched for seven, which were bunched to score all of our runs. For the winners Joe Norris and "Bill" Zigmont led with the stick. TAMAQUA HIGH-35 LANSFORD-2 fAt Lansfordj Tamaqua High staged a one-run rally in the eighth inning to defeat its old rival, Lansford High, by a 3 to 2 count. The contest was one of those hard-fought affairs that have always featured games between the two schools. It was not finally decided until the eighth inning, when Williams doubled and scored on an error of omission. Neifert was felt for four hits, while the visiting twirler permitted seven, three of which were doubles. Spectacular fielding by the local boys got Neifert out of some tight places. Norris in right field made a wonderful running one-hand "shoestring" catch that came with the bases filled and resulted in a double play. Yuscyk and Whetstone made some fine pick-ups in the infield that counted for outs. TAMAQUA HIGH-18g LYKENS-2 fAt Homej Tamaqua High went on a hitting spree on Saturday afternoon to score an 18-2 win over Lykens High. The Blue and White boys pounded out twenty safe blows, "Bill,' Williams leading with five. After the third inning the game was never in doubt. Neifert up until the third inning had allowed but one hit. He was relieved by Joe Rhubright, a Freshman, who played his first game and gave a good exhibition of pitching ability. During the three innings he twirled, seven were set down remaining two were forced to hit weakly to the infield for easy outs. on strikes, while the ,sth XLLAA- 1 Af4':uZi 411 14 X 4 'QW ,rn A X J ...

Social Notes Early in September the S. O. B. Club reorganized. William Hinkel and William Wall were taken in as new members. The club was formed in the fall of 1925 and consisted of members of the classes of '27 and '28. At present there are fourteen members of which three are students at college. On September 20 seven Senior boys met at the home of Paul Wagner and organ- ized the Alpha Zeta Omicron for social and fraternal purposes. Those who signed the pledge were Curtis Yost, William Guy, Ralph Heister, Wendell Welsh, Paul Wagner, Samuel Radcliffe and Archer Woodwell. The following week, September 27, the club met for the first time at the home of Wendell Welsh and from this date on regular weekly meetings were held at the homes of the members. Cards were the usual enter- tainment and refreshments, of course, were served at the close of the evening. The members speak of their "Pins" as being "meal tickets." During Institute week Paul Wagner absorbed some college atmosphere when he visited Collegeville as the guest of his cousin who is attending Ursinus. PI- 9? 95 FE On October 18 Paul Wagner, Curtis Yost and Pat Valentine attended the pre- sentation of the play, "My Maryland" in Hazleton. The class of '28 extends its sympathy to Mildred Wenzel who lost her mother in October. On October 22 Dorothy Cooper visited her former classmates as the guest of Sarah Jacobs. Constance Burkeholder, also a former member of the class of '28, paid us a visit during November. The evening of November 8 saw our annual Get-together Party in the Masonic Auditorium. Gordon Weaver played "host" on December 9 at an enjoyable card party to which Ethel Reichelderfer, Mary Moyer, the following were "among those in attendancenz Olive Reed, Sarah Jacobs, Kathryn Schaeffer, Gladys Whetstone, Franklin Giltner, Theo- dore Purnell, Hower Moyer, Ralph Heister, Andrew Raab and, necessarily, Gordon D.

Among them we might mention Luke Kockenberger fwho visited for an entirely differ- ent reasonj , Earle Fleming, Edith Schrope, Paul Neifert, Jack Reese and Albert Thompson. Over the holidays Gladys Whetstone, Sarah Jacobs, Ethel Reichelderfer and Mary Moyer entertained with a series of parties. QThe boys reported an enjoyable vacationl. :P :Q Q are Curtis Yost, james Scheirer, Rodney Prosser and Pinky Purnell went to Reading and saw the Reading-Tamaqua Basketball game. PT- 2? 21- -r On January 20 a large number of loyal rooters accompanied the team on its Mahanoy City invasion. Altho the team lost, the Tamaqua delegation let Mahanoy City know that it was there after the game. The Senior Class presented its play in the Majestic Theatre before a crowded house on March 6. . sp sp sp :1- The boys received a thrill on Easter Monday when Ethel Reichelderfer brought a visitor. In case you were'nt introduced she was jeannet Marshal from Reading. The Mixed Chorus, under the able direction of Mrs. Hopkins, presented the operetta, "The Gypsy Rover" to an appreciative audience in the Majestic Theatre on April 12. Even though it was Friday, April 13, we were very glad to see Mr. Peeling, who taught us History in our Sophomore year. -314 0L QwJU l a va . .vvf 4. 753711 4 My VMI ima FEMA :FIG XML! 3.2 3 fr, il Page One Hundred and Forty-one l928 srumx 'H af ,iff 5 is ,' 7?-.

THE FAMILY UPSTAIRS The Senior Class on March 6, 1928, in the Majestic Theatre presented "The Family Upstairs," a three-act farce, which proved to be the most successful play ever produced by any Senior Class. The plot centers around an average American family with low finances but high social aspirations. Mrs. Heller is constantly trying to make improvements in the home so that her daughter, Louise might meet and marry a rich young man. In spite of her attempts to better conditions Mr. Heller and the rest of the family continue to remain as they are. Meanwhile their daughter has met a supposedly rich young man, Mr. Grant. He calls upon the Heller family and wishes to take Louise out for the afternoon. There are all sorts of preparations in order to make a good impression. Finally, after many breaks made by the family, Louise reveals to Mr. Grant the true condition. Mr. Grant then reveals that he also is very poor and that he must support his mother as well as himself on his bank clerk's wages. True love triumphs, however, and the play ends with arrangements for the wedding of Louise and Mr. Grant. The entire Cast showed rare ability. So realistic were the characters, that the play from beginning to end was full of laughs and unusual humor. CAST Mrs. Heller ............., ...... . ,... .......... , . .

Many new rules and regulations were made this year, which were obeyed by the student body and as a result, proved a benefit to the school.

A., is composed of boys in the High School who have promised to "create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community, high standards of Christian character." The Tamaqua organization at its inception Uanuary 29, 1925j, took as its "plat- form" the following four "planks", flj Clean Living, Q25 Clean Speech, Q35 Clean Sports, Q41 Clean Scholarship. Since that date, it has increased in numbers and strength, until today approximately sixty members answer the roll. Something new was tried this year by the local club, when it entered a state-wide contest concerning characters of the Bible. For seven weeks the boys met, under the guidance of Rev. Myers, and discussed the famous men of old, and on the eighth meeting-night, underwent an extensive examination, in which they came off with flying colors. The annual Banquet was held on April 17, shortly after the culmination of the Bible Study contest. It was served by the Ladies, Bible Class of the Presbyterian Church, at which place the "spread" was given. Among the guests were: Mr. F. G. Horner, Mr. R. B. Stapleton, Mr. H. W. Slanker, Mr. R. N. Hartman, and Reverend Myers. All these men gave short talks, while Mr. Hartman spoke at length on "Clean Sports- manship." Don Gerhard also gave one of his inimitable monologues, and kept the club roaring for a full ten minutes. At the close of the past year, nearly twenty new members were initiated into the club. All these newcomers have co-operated splendidly, and when the Seniors step out of the club, they will be ready and willing to fill their places. With such spirit as this the local club ought to wield a great influence on school life in the years to come. ,........ -- N -- - : - --- ,. i I Y W 55 'U fe. 7 . I-may Y . fly ,.

Malischauckie, '29 QAlt.j The Blue and White Debating Team received a new impetus this year under the able coaching of Miss Steigerwalt. Each team engaged in two debates and, judging from the splendid showing made on each occasion, we can look forward to a bigger and better Debating Team next year. The schedule of the debates was as follows: Affirmative: April 26, West Hazleton High School May 4, Allentown Preparatory School Negative: April 27, Schuylkill Haven High School May 4, Allentown Preparatory School The questjon debated in all cases was "Resolved: That a High Protective Tariff as a permanent policy promotes the best interests of the United States." In the first debate a two to one decision was awarded in favor of West Hazleton High School. A record crowd attended. However, on April 27, the negative team retaliated with a victory over Schuylkill Haven. This victory more than made up for the Hrst defeat as it was the first win over Schuylkill Haven who are our keenest rivals in the past three years. f -f ' .... i- 'sg-ale rf' .A .. A.

THE MIXED CHORUS The Mixed Chorus is an organization of thirty-four girls and twelve boys, selected from the musical aspirants of the school and given special training by the Music Supervisor. The annual rendition of carols on Christmas eve marked its first public appearance of the year. A representation of the organization continued the yearly musical pro- gram by singing at the Salem Evangelical Church on February first. The presentation of the Operetta, "The Gypsy Rover," on April tenth, demon- strated great future possibilities for such a well-trained, well-led organization. Appearances of the Mixed Chorus are ever welcomed and appreciated by the audi- ences before which it appears and the school feels duly proud of the successes of its Chorus. -i vi 'E P5 fgivve I . -ol Mu' il 4 '53 "' 'ri 'VX' 14 W 'mn iii?

GIRLS' GLEE CLUB The Girls' Glee Club consists of thirty-four girls selected and specially trained by the Music Supervisor. At its reorganization in September Reba Shain was elected President and HeleniFreeh Secretary and Librarian. The substantial foundation from the preceding term, swelled by numerous new recruits, developed into quite a harmonious organization during the year. The high light of the year was an evening concert presented January twenty-fourth in the M. E. Church. The classic program, intermixed with light selections was Well received by a large audience. The Glee Club also sang for the Parent-Teacher Association in November and for the junior Music Club in December. -1 ' .' f' .L -29 fi "ef, 102 Q, an-muung A f 44.1 ' 4 f ,f Uvif " "" ,lla l X45 -W -f Wifi L-wif vvw ' sri .Y . - , , M, t A A A , H, Page One Hundred and Fifty I , 2 8 5 P H I N 'ms"i,:'rg,,q X " 0 f 4 f 'lf -U 'Q Q' 'a f' 'l lr 1 L V, . lille!! x.,1,.

Reorganized early in September around a nucleus formed from the remainder of the 1927 Orchestra, it soon expanded to a well-balanced organization of twenty- three pieces. The Orchestra plays at all school functions including the Senior Class Play, the High School Operetta, Class Day and Commencement and has always contributed much to the success of these affairs.

From the overture to the grand finale the able direction of Mrs. Hopkins was evident and to her was due no small part of its success. Promptly at 8:15 the lights dimmed, the curtain glided upward, and the hushed theatre beheld a colorful camp scene of a sombulent gypsy band. All at once from the forest, there came the voice of a man singing. The camp quickened with expectancy and then into its midst strode Rob, the hero of the children and the favorite of the men. The band joined him in song and then all the gypsies departed to Work at their apportioned tasks. While the camp was thus deserted, Lady Constance accompanied by her fiancee, Lord Craven, who had become lost in, the forest, stumbled upon the camp and while Craven went to see to their horses Rob appeared and, like a fairy tale they fell in love at first sight. ci V.

Two years passed and Constance had at last consented to marry Craven. It was the night before the wedding, the guests assembled in Sir George's home were waiting for Sir Gilbert Howe, a distinguished young nobleman. Upon his appearance Lady Constance uttered a joyous cry, Sir Gilbert was her gypsy Rob! And so he was, he had been stolen when a baby and had been brought up in the gypsy band but Meg had repented and Rob, knowing his true identity fell heir to large estates and a title and so, as Rob said, "The good fairies have led me to the beautiful country after all, and our story, Constance, can end in the proper way, "They lived happily ever after." There were also pretty love affairs between Nina and Capt. Jerome and Zara and Sinfo and many comedy scenes by Sinfo and Marto as well as specialty ballet and solo dances. -if n A?U 3 V 1 9' :fr ',:' I -. ef' f , vvvvvvvvvv 9, -' Z- Q ,f 5141 f- ' W G Y V X Q L A 1 Page One Hundred and Fifty three s..

At that time Eleanor Camp was elected President, Mary Brobst 1 First Vice-President, Helen Freeh Second Vice-President, Eleanor Pfeil Secretary, Ann 1 1 Castator Treasurer. The Club, a branch of the National Federation of Music Clubs, is organized for the purpose of furthering musical interests among the young people. It meets once a month in a combined business and educational entertainment session. Twice a year it holds on "open night" meeting to which all friends of the Club are invited. The big event of the y-ear is the banquet to which all Club members are eligible and which marks the close of its scholastic year. NX CHS I Qs 9 f Ei , Y .f.

To these undeserving souls we owe the grand old game of pinochle. Now we are again gathered in that same room playing black jack. To those sin- cere and unfaltering disciples of Hoyle, we re- spectfully dedicate this volume, not forgetting the fact that one and one makes three.

Q. SMEE Xodious was our orphan of the storm. After much persuasion he iinally consented to relate to us the story. It was one Saturday evening in December, and after being snow' bound for three weeks Mr. Smee and his son set out to town in their twinfhorse sleigh. Upon their ar' rival Mr. Smee hitched his horse to the flag pole on the Majestic and sent his son on an errand. When he had returned with the provisions, the sun had melted the snow and old man Smee was left alone at such an inaccessible height and died before he could be rescued. CAt this point of the story Quinto fainted and was un' able to go ony Nickname-Foolish. MONTGOMERY WARD His father named him Mont' gomery Ward because he was of the male order. His troubles, however, were more than milk. The very Hrst day his mother left him fall on the floor, so you can imagine the ob' stacle he had to overcome to act like one of us. "Mont" is a little more than a local lad trying to make good. He comes to us from the Huylkill Schaven Orphanage with a fine recommendation from Prof. Tufor A. Nickel. For further peculiarities, write him for the latest summer and au' tumn catalogue, a book so "dear" to many Scotchmen.

Actors of Ebsiol Before the Chinese Institute for the Blindj Rodney Cholmondley Van Spiflington De Puyster St. Claire is riding along in his expensive rig, drawn by his faithful rocking horse "Onion Budf' when whom does he see by the roadside but Daphne Horsefeathers, a poor but proud working girl, on her way to work in the Buttonhole factory of Rodney Cholmondley Van Spiffington De Puyster St. Claire's father. fScene lj . "Fair Damself' cries Rodney Cholmondley Van Spiffington De Puyster St. Claire. Q'Come ride with me in my chariot to yon Buttonhole factory." "Thank ou, kind Sir," re lied she. "M edal extremities, forsooth, are indeed Y P Y P transposed into those uncomfortable creatures known as "hot dogsl' and fain would I rest them." fScene 2j . . An evil leer lit up the face of Rodney Cholmondley Van Spiffington De Puyster St. Claire, as he twirled his navy blue mustache, in a truly villainous manner, and rl hollow laugh slid from beneath his crockery teeth. As they drove along, their faithful steed suddenly developed a carbon knock and Rodney Cholmondley Van Spiflington De Puyster St. Claire steered him to a shady nook and proceeded to grind his teeth. "Hal My proud beauty!" he cried as he seized Daphne's barrel-like waist, Q'We are alone and you are in me power-r-r-r-. I-Ieh-heh!,' CScene 3j . "Unhand me, villain!,' cried Daphne. "Is there no one here to protect a defenseless maiden?" As she gave Rodney Cholmondley Van Spiflington De Puyster St. Claire a sock on the jaw. fScene 41. Seizing her oneman scooter she essayed to speed away from the foul fiend, who now sneered dizzily at her from the protection of an umbrella. Cscene 5 J . A hollow groan struggled from the bottom of Daphne's hip-boots, as the wheels of her scooter fell off and Rodney Cholmondley Van Spiffington De Puyster St. Claire triumphantly held aloft a left-handed monkey Wrench. QScene 6j. "Fair one," cried he, "Yield to me or I will put you to death neath the teeth of yon buzz-saw.', t4A4, "' "' 1 llgf Une Hundred and Sclvcnly-three H .

As Rodney Cholmondley Van Spiflington De Puyster St. Claire moved toward Daphne with an evil intent in his heart and a baseball bat in his hand, a new figure burst upon the scene. QScene 7j. It was our hero, Percival Snigglefritz, cow nurse on his father's farm and Daphne,s Sweetheart. "Villain,', cried he, "Unhand that maiden ere I change the location of thy pro- boscis," and, placing a protecting arm as far around Daphne as he could reach, he stood between her and the vile dog who had assailed her. fScene 81. "Curses! Hashed!" snarled Rodney Cholmondley Van Spiilington De Puyster St. Claire through his mustache and drawing forth a wicked-looking sling shot he let fly at Percival with a mislaid bird's egg. QScene 91. But our hero was not being caught napping, for with a quick motion he drew an atomizer and drenched Rodney Chol- mondley Van Spiffington De Puyster St. Claire with a deluge of Listerine. QScene 101 . This was too much for Rodney and with a baffled curse he slunk away muttering to himself "Eeny-meeny-miney-mo!" QScene llj. Then turning to Daphne, who had been a breathless spectator, and, indeed, was quite blue in the face from her breathlessness, Percival cried, "My love, come to me!,' With a sigh as of a leaky steam boiler she came to him and as his arms pressed as much of her as they could hold, her arms slowly crept around his neck and clung tight. QScene 12j.

Printing is a business of inhnite detail, in which it is difficult to keep one's cye on the ball. Good printing doesn't just happen. It has to be nursed and coddled and watched and wheedled through intricate machines and many processes. Rapid printing doesn't iust happen, either. Somebody must step on its tail, 'worry it. tease it, prod it, hound it through. But through it all our eye is on the ball, just as in your business your eye is on the ball. Helping customers keep their eye on the ball is your business, as Well as ours. We can offer most able assistance and render a worthwhile service on College and High School Annuals.

Longer years of life, usefulness and enjoyment are now accepted as matter of fact. Ponce de Leon looked for a miracle to restore youth -now it's the fashion to stay young.
