' We, the fourth class to graduate from Upper
Merion High School, desire in these pages to ree
create scenes from our high school life.
Now we are pioneers entering a newer, more
complicated phase of our livesg whether it be
science, mechanics, or any other modern work,
Upper Merion has prepared us for the vocations
which we have chosen.
We hope this, our issue of the Pioneer, to be
worthy of preservation by our classmates. May it
be an aid to them in keeping alive happy memories
of Upper Merion.

TlElE NEED FOR SERVICE
' ln the history of our schools another class is ready to be graduated. Al-
though the world has been more perplexed during your high sc-hool career
than ever before in the history of the world, yet your superintendent and
teachers have tried to prepare you to take your place in a new and changing
world. The goal for which you have striven through your years of application
has at last been reached.
Whether you move forward to continue your education in the field of
experience or in a technical school, get all the knowledge and culture that
you possibly can that you may be able to meet the demands made of you and
to carry high the ideals of this great democracy. This new world infto which
you go has as its watchword "Service". You must now help to create thisi
world of which you have dreamed: for which you have prayed. We have
talked much of peace and justice, of equal opportunity, of development
and achievement for every one. We can have these things and more but we
will gain them only through persistent efforts, and we can only claim them
truly when we are able to pay their full and difficult price.
May God's richest blessing follow each one of you.

A CALL TO YOUTH'
' You who represent Upper Merion's contribution to the large group of high
school graduates from this nation, may well consider yourselves a fortunate
group. Good fortune has attended you in a variety of ways. In none is she
more impressive than in that the world today shows a need for you as she has
not shown it to the several classes immediately preceding you. Because of a
division of labor you may often be assigned to tasks that in themselves are
quite simple. More and more do you need to see the relationships of simple
tasks to life as a whole. Relationships of man to man, singly or in groups, con
cern us as they have not done heretofore. l trust that you may immediately
become active and helpful agents in your community, and hope that your
high school training may be of help to you in your ventures
TO THE CLASS OF I937
' As you leave Upper Merion to become good citizens and home-makers
take these fine qualities of character that have resulted from your training
here, and use them in a manner that will bring you happiness and success
This is the wish l give to each one of you, and, in so doing, l express the
sentiments of the entire High Sc-hool Faculty

' Like all other good things our high school career has come to an end. To
some of us it seems like the greatest thing that could happen, but to the
great majority it brings a pang of regret. We will long remember our high
school days at Upper lvleriong the times when we were happy, sad, confident
and optimistic will come back to us from the pages of The Pioneer. Although
sometimes these memories that we now cherish may fade w-hen we face
life's great adventures. l somehow feel that we can never fully forget those
happy moments we so thoroughly enjoyed while in high school. As we leave
school we wish to thank the faculty for their kindnesses and consideration
and to wish the entire student body all the luck and happiness in the world

I The extracurricular program of Upper Merion offers an opportunity for all students to par-
ticipate in activities outside the classroom. As Sophomores, we realized and appreciated this
opportunity and became active in all the school organizations.
Four of our members had leads in the operetta, "Bon Voyage" and two in the annual
play, "Smanthy". Several of our classmates have been members of the band and orchestra
since they were students in the Junior High School.
Placing the varsity athletic teams as their aim, many Sophomores became members
of the hockey, basketball, football, tennis, wrestling, rifle and baseball squads.
June came and we left for the summer vacation, no longer "Sophs" but Juniors.
ln the role of "Jolly Juniors" our interest in social activities increased. We gave a.
Hallowe'en Dance and it was a decided success.
Again the members of our class took part in the dramatic life of our school. Six 'had
principal parts in the annual play, "Seven Keys to Baldpate", two had leading roles in the
operetta "Pickles", and we were also represented. by leads in the Christmas Pflay.
We had classmates on both the varsity and iunior varsity teams of all the sports. ln
addition to these activities, one of our members was chosen to lead the band.
The outstanding social event of the year, the Junior Prom, took place in May. The
theme of the picturesque decorations was centered around a Southern Plantation.
Our senior year was our third and most enjoyable of all. We immediately organized
as a class and elected officers who were to guide us through this, our last year at Upper Merion.
Choosing the name "Spartans" to'represent Upper Merion, participating in all sports,
sponsoring a Hallowe'en and a Subscription dance, and organizing the Student Safety

The Class of i937 leaves Upper Merion with mingled emotions, enthusiasm and regret:
enthusiasm to enter a newer and more complicated field of work, regret to feel that we
must leave the school where we spent many happy years and were provided with a founda-

Faculty Adviser Mr. Strine
' ln December of l936, Upper Merion High School Students realized the
necessity for having a safety committee to regulate the loading and unload-
ing of pupils on the school busses. Under the direction and supervision of
Mr. Strine, a Student Safety Society known as "The Triple S" was organized.
There are seventeen members in the society, and each member is a patrol-
man on his bus.
Because of the co-operation of the student body and the patrol mem-
bers, the Student Satety Society has been considered a great success. Its
powers have now been extended from the regulation of bus conditions to
any safety conditions necessary in the school.

AN N UAL PLAY
' Due to the untiring efforts of Miss Martin, the director, and the co-opera-
tion of the cast, the annual play "The Chinese Chest" was highly successful.
The story is mainly concerned with Margaret, whose socially ambitious
mother wants her to marry Herbert Wolcott, a prominent lawyer. As a token
of his love, Mr. Wolcott presents Margaret with a beautiful Chinese Chest.
The exciting story unfolds and reveals that Wolcott, with the assistance
of some Chinese, has been importing dope. The conspiracy is cleverly un-
covered and Margaret and O'Neil, the policeman, become engaged.

' An interesting feature of the Christmas program was "The Nativity", a
sacred cantata presented by the Merionites and other high school students.
Songs, based on old French carols, pantomimes and readings of the scripture
story made up the choral composition. Well-known scenes shown were
those ofthe inn and stable in Bethlehem.
Mrs. Diehl and Mr. Messick directed the music and Miss Martin coached
THE MAGIC NUTCRACKER
' An operetta, woven about the music of the Nutcracker Suite, was of
humorous character and completed the program. Junior high school pupils
played the parts of the fairy tale characters which were life-sized dolls and
toys around a Christmas tree.
Mr. Messick directed the music, Miss Foley the dances, Miss Grove the
costumes and Mr. Kinter and Mr. Rathmell took charge of the scenery.

of a wealthy American girl who was born in Japan, and unaware of heir
identity, was raised by Kokemo as a Geisha girl. Her father's secretary, whos
had abandoned her upon the death of her parents, returned to Japan with
a party of American friends. The action is then centered about the love affair
of Cherryblossom and Jack, an American, who tried to prevent her marriage
to Togo, a wealthy politician.

' Upper Merion girls opened their seventh basketball season in January
I937. This was the first year in which they played two division basketball, the
new style of court competition which is rapidly' replacing the old method of
playing. The girls, although inexperienced, adapted themselves very quickly,
and played some closely contested games. The junior varsity, winning five
of the eight games on their schedule, showed promise of developing into a
well-balanced team for next year.
Captain Mickey Chambers, and her five senior teammates, will graduate
in June. Eleanor Eckman has been chosen captain of the i938 varsity.

' After a lapse of one year, baseball has again taken its place as one of our
spring sports. At the request of the boys, meetings were held under the
supervision of Mr. Strine to decide whether or not the sport would be
reinstated. The decision was a favorable one, and the boys sponsored a "Bring
BackiBaseball'i campaign. They gave a movie benefit in school which was
wholeheartedly supported by the pupils. The proceeds obtained enabled
them to buy the necessary equipment for their team.
A large squad has turned out for practices, and games are being scheduled
with nearby schools. The return of baseball has been received with much
enthusiasm in the high school. The student body hopes that the boys and
their coach, Mr. Strine, will have an enjoyable season.

' At the request of the Seniors, a Student Council was again started in the
Junior-Senior High School, and as evidenced by the success of its first project
on sanitation, is going to be a vital factor in our school government from
now on. -
' THE HOME ROOM PLAN DEVELOPED
' Realizing the values to be obtained by a well organized home room, definite
plans were made by the faculty each week for a beneficial guidance program.
The students have co-operated, and home rooms are increasing in importance
in our school.
E PIONEER ADVANCES
' A much improved year book can be credited to an active Senior Class which
deserves congratulations for a very accurate and attractive school record.
' To Mr. Helfferich, Mrs. Miller, Miss Witman and Mr. Messick, Upper
Merion's faculty and pupils bid a fond farewell, and extend sincere good
wishes for their future happiness. To Mr. Mitterling-C-reetings-and we
hope that you are as glad to be with us as we are to have you.

THE INQU l Rl NG REPORTER
What would you have been if you weren't a teacher?
Mr. Raub replied "a ditch digger"g when told it was for the year book,
he quickly changed to "business man."
The nursing profession would have claimed Mrs. Marwood, Mrs. Diehl,
and Mrs. Miller. Who knows, perhaps we may have had a Florence Nightingale!
Mr. Moll would now be pleading cases in a law court, and wouldn't we
hate to be on the wrong side of the fence.
Miss Foley said that she aspired to be a keeper in a zoo. Well, she didn't
miss it by much!
"ln the business world", was Mr. Strine's emphatic reply, but we cer-
tainly are glad that his choice was otherwise.
We have one in our midst who would have been a circus barker-Miss
Martin. Well, we are surprised!
Poor Mr. James' ambition to be a hobo was wrecked when his wife
made him go to work.
Oh, my, we have two teachers who at one time had ambitions to be
physicians-Mr. Wartena and Mr. Hensinger. They certainly would have had
more pains in the neck to take care of then!
Teaching school saved Mr. Messick from becoming a beggar or thief.
We wonder what his answer would have been if he hadn't been in his usual

With Apologies to H. W. Longfellow
Listen my children and you shall hear
Weather news of a faculty dear,
'Twas in the year of '37
That thoughts of this report were given.
'Twas one day in March of that grand time
When a bad blizzard assailed Bob Strine,
All our knowledge went on the wing
For we saw threatening-snowstorm King.
No hope was there for reaching shelter
For next came the whirlwind Hensinger,
Blue skies Martin then told us the trick
Less noise in music will please Messick.
Hurrah 'tis spring and no more winter
Welcome indeed is sunny Kinter,
Happy we'll be in our new found cove
lf we can withhold more storms from Grove.
Now we have made a weather. report
You may laugh or cry or just make sport,
But we ask you, and our teachers too,
Don't you think that it's really quite true?

Where Does a Truck Engine Belong?
"UNDER THE SEAT"-because that is the nearest point to the rear axle
that is practicable for loading.
Why are Autocars the only trucks with the engine under the seat, where
it should be, instead of being in the cab with the driver?
Because Autocar's exclusive "Engine-under-the-Seat'' design is covered
by broad patents.
Does it cost more to put truck engines under the seat?
It does, and it's worth it. For in addition to giving all the now commonly
accepted Chassis and load advantages that inhere in short-wheelbase handi-
ness, putting the engine under the seat makes every possible provision
for the driver's comfort and ease of handling.
For those who do not yet realize the unquestionable superiority of
"Engine-under-theSeat"Autocars, all we ask is to put one alongside any
other short-wheelbase truck. This alone will convince them that Autocar
is a thing apart.
