Ambler High School
to us on punctuality. We had two of the iriest chaperones, Mr. Harkins and Miss
Potteiger. They weren't really chaperones, but one of us out for a good time, as we
were. Gee! did we have it? It's something we'll never forget!
"That's the year we gave 'Penrodf Sure enough, we three Bobs were in it.
Virginia Finney was my sister in the play, Phyllis Wooler was in it, also. Then Buck,
Webb, Delaney, and I played again that year in 'Charm Schoolf Trudy Walker gave
a spurt of drama in that as a school mistress.
"As Seniors, we took the school by storm. Coulter Allen was the president, and
Jean Gehman was secretary. That reminds me-I wonder if Jean still plays the piano.
She always played for the Assembly singing. I think she worked harder than the
actors at operetta rehearsals, yet she was always willing to play again if you wanted
her to play.
"That was the year the track team won so many trophies. They always came
home with a place-usually first. Yes, the other teams were also good that year. We
always had hard fighters.
"Yes, that was one of the 'depression years.' Yet, in spite of the panics, the school
put over some mighty ticket campaigns for 'Miss Lulu Bett' and 'Oh, Doctorf
"We used to have grand times during home room periods with Miss Kulp and
Mr. Meyers. They were our class advisors. Don't think it was all fun. We had lots
of work to do, and some of the hardest tests. One of the greatest things accomplished
by anyone was running past Charles Illingworth in the hall. He was chief of the hall
guards, and he was strictly business.
"What time did you say it is? And I must be in Philadelphia in ten minutes!
Well, I almost felt as if I were back in High School again. Yes, indeedyg I'll never
forget those years at Ambler High.
"So long, youngsters-Contact!"

"You think you have a football team? Well, you should have seen old Duke
Romano crashing over the line, and Joe Hayman was the best end you could want.
Barbecow was the track team that year, already preparing himself to break records.
Dillon certainly could knock a baseball for a homer, and Roberto could cover second
like a blanket.
'sThat's the year we gave a mystery thriller, 'Whispering Pines' That's when
Bob Webb started his dramatic career, Bob Buck, too. Yes, I was in it. They used
to call us the 'three Bobs' Yes, that was a great play, and we put it over all by
ourselves, sold the tickets and all.
"Then in 1932 we became Juniors, Boy, that was a thrill. And, you know, I
was president that year, yes, Elsie Deutsch was secretary, Home room teachers? Yes,
they were Miss Bork and Mr. Duncanfyou've heard me speak of them, Miss Bork
is the teacher with whom we got up a Christmas party for a poor family. Maybe
that wasn't fun! Why, we had everything from dolls to chickens.
"We were a musical class, too. Six of our members were in the band and
orchestra. We still carried on the other activities. That year Dillon, Delaney, Bar'
becow, and Brown were added to the football team. That's when the action started.
And, say, we almost made up the full basketball team with Fluck, Pete Roberto, Phil
Barbecow, and Allen on the team. That year Wanda Jensen, Trudy Walker, Miriam
Hale, and Elsie Deutsch were on the hockey team. The same year Hunsicker managed
the track team and discovered new ability in Linclenfelser, john Roberto, Brown, Rose,
"Yes, that's the year we went to Washington, too. Three glorious days they
were! You would have split your sides laughing at Mr. De Roba, our guide, lecturing
