E101 'MPPQIL i 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. x May God's richest blessing follow each one of you.

Wm 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 Robert R Strine U31 Lloyd A.

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 Richard Kelly President SENIOR EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE Left to rght: Bennett Peay Conner Kelly Horsfall Berger and Orner E191 1 w v v . u I I 1 - 1 1 - jim. 7937 Plbneeli, PAUL ?FlNlNETT Commercial , Wayne, R.

CLASS HISTORY 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 Society and Student Council are examples of the varied activities of our class during its senior year. The annual play and the operetta were given with nine seniors portraying leading roles. The senior play was performed on two successive nights with two casts. 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- tion for our future life.

The ninth grade boys presented an original minstrel show. Poems, music, dances, and jokes were all included in the program. A magazine campaign, arranged as a contest among the home rooms, was zealously supported by the Junior High School. This was done in the interest of their extracurricular activities. THE FRIENDSHIP CLUB " The Ninth Grade Club was organized in September. It is composed of IIS members and the purpose is to combine the ninth grade sections into a class organization. The President, Vice-President, critic and program committee are elected every eight weeks. The changing of officers and arrangement of the programs provides an opportunity for every student to participate in the club's activities.

STUDENT SAFETY SOCIETY President Ronald Schniepp 'Vice-President John Smith Secretary Louise Kaminski 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.

A committee of six seniors was appointed to set up the principles and purposes of this organization. The four principal aims of the Student Council are: to obtain' student participation in the control of school affairs: to encourage co-operation among the pupilsg to establish better relationship between the faculty and student bodyg and to promote the worthwhile qualities of initiative, leader- ship and responsibility in the pupils. The presidents of the home rooms in the Junior and Senior High School and the two Vice-Presidents of the Junior Class are members of the Student Council. The original committee, Mr. Strine and Mr. Rathmell are also members. A committee of council members is now drawing up a constitution, and the first project which the council is now undertaking, is to improve the sanitation of our school. The pupils and faculty feel that this new organization, with its high ideals, will be of great value in training the students of Upper Merion to be better citizens in the community.

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. The leads were taken by Anna Munshower, Willis Orner, Betsy Croft, Jack Eastwood, Lauren Cassel, Brooke Shoffner, Ben Cotton and Theodore Kunda.

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.

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. GOLF ' The third season for a golf team has again started in Upper Merion. Last year's squad had an impressive record, winning the Section Two of the Subur- ban C-olf League. Frank Katrina, a i936 senior, qualified in the Philadelphia District lnterscholastic C-olf Tournament. ln the Pennsylvania lnterscholastic Athletic Association Tournament at State College, Paul Vasily was selected as a member of the Philadelphia Suburban Team and Mr. Raub was appointed coach. The golf team is again playing in the Suburban League this spring, and their schedule includes matches with the following schools: Glen Nor, Darby, Chester, Nether Providence, Clifton and Sharon Hill. The team has won its first two matches, which indicates that the boys are on their way to another successful season. Matches with two non-league opponents, Phoenixville and Bridgeport, have also been arranged. - Mr. Raub is again the coach of the i937 golf team and the players are: Dennis Coltart, Pete Conti, Leonard Mantell, Edward Coyle, Martin Yurick, Walter Wodenka, Robert Newhouse and Jack Eastwood. n TENNIS ' Although tennis has been one of the activities of our Physical Education program for several years, it was not until two years ago that it became a varsity sport. As many of the team members were just learning the game, only a few matches were scheduled with other schools. The boys improved rapidly throughout the seasons, and won several of these matches with their neigh- boring rivals. Stanley Kopacz, Edward Osinski and Willis Orner are the players re- maining from last.year's squad. The other candidates again are inexperi- enced players. Matches are to be scheduled for later in the season, and it is hoped that tennis will continue to become more popular as a spring sport in Upper Merion.

H IC-HLICHTS OF I 936-37 THE "SPARTANS" CHOSEN ' Upper Merion felt the need for a name to which our athletic teams could be referred. The Junior-Senior high school pupils selected the title of "Spar- tans" because of the significance of the valor and sportsmanship of that ancient Greek people. I HOCKEY TEAM UNDEFEATED ' For the first time in the six years of hockey at Upper Merion, the girls finished their schedule without being defeatedg winning six games and tieing three. FOOTBALL RALLIES AND DANCES BEC-UN ' To show our enthusiasm and support of the athletic teams, rallies and dances were held the night before some of the big games with our opponents as invited guests. THE STUDENT SAFETY SOCIETY ORC-ANIZED ' Upper Merion pupils again took the initiative this year in organizing a society known as "The Triple S"g which has proven its value to the school in caring for the safety of our students. STUDENT COUNCIL REORC-ANIZED ' 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. FACULTY CHANGES ' 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. E661 Wm OUR MOTHER GOOSE RHYMES Elizabeth Bobbay-Just An Old Fashioned Girl.

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 hurry? , E671 jim- 793 7 '6,1bl'l.Q.0!L THE U. .

"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. "Follow the Leaders for Tbey Know the Way" AUTUCAR TRUCKS Ardmore, Pa.
