For the first few months, we were pushed hither and yon and didn’t quite know what to do next, but somehow or another we pulled through alright. When Sophomores, we were permitted to organize and for our officers we chose: President, Amy Murray: Vice President, Clarence Myers: Secre- tary, Amelia Mahan: Treasurer, Charles Horning. The big event of the year was a Valentine Party held in the Main Hall of the High School Building. Everyone was of the opinion that it was the best party of that year. In September 1929, we again gathered together as Juniors with Mr. Smedley as our home room teacher. We were now more acquainted with the teachers and routine of work and because we were ‘ Juniors’' and Upper Classmen we thought we were just “IT”. Our officers this year were as follows: President, Clarence Myers: Vice President, Jane Walton; Secretary, David Heilig; Treasurer, Nadeine Reiter. For some reason or another our Class has obtained the reputation of breaking contracts, and having a lot of trouble in making up our minds as to what we want and want to do. But anyway, after quite a few “spats”, breaking of contracts and misunderstandings, we chose our Class pins and rings. In November we sponsored a dance in the Minquas Fire House. Quite a large crowd turned up and the proceeds increased our treasury. We are sure everyone enjoyed the events of the evening. In April, the class, along with a few town’s folks, Mr. Heffner, and Christian Sanderson, journeyed to Gettysburg for an inspection of the Battlefield. "And a good time was had by all.” In May we again joined our friends at the Minquas Gym for another delightful party. Not long after that, in the same month, we gave the Junior and Senior Reception, such as had not been given before. A short programme was rendered by the Juniors and then card playing and dancing was enjoyed by all present. In 1930, as dignified Seniors, we gathered in the historic home of the Senior Class, room 12. Almost immediately we elected officers with David Heiling as President: Amy Murray, Secretary: and Annawyn Johnson, Treasurer. Plans were made to raise money for that famous Washington trip. The treasury was low and something had to be done. A play, “Bab--A Sub-deb , was given by several members of the class and proved quite a success. Our Senior Class gave many heroes to the Football, Basketball, and Baseball teams. A party was given in the Minquas Gymnasium and met with a surprising success. Pennants, emblems, and caps were purchased by the members of the class with almost as much trouble as our rings were last year. Everyone dreads the name of June. For in that month we—fifty-two members of D. H. S.—will have to say goodbye to our Alma Mater to join some other and higher institution of learning. —Amy L. Murray, '31. ( TWENTY EIGHT )(2&iss 31 Hew realize just what a valuable asset the class of 31 has been to Down-ington High School and how much they will miss us when we have passed on to higher fields of learning. In order that the said loss may be lessened to some extent, we, the class of 31, have deemed it necessary and proper to bequeath the following: Robert Plank’s big feet to Duer Smedley. Jean Pollock s plumpness to “Ibbie" Wray. ‘ Dave’’ Heilig's popularity to Clarence Fitzgerald. "Chic" Horning’s success with the ladies to Pusey Lammey. 'Johnnie" Johnson's athletic ability to Elizabeth Carpenter. "New” Moore’s broken heart to Joe Sciarretta. "Bill" Mendenhall’s love of French to Johnny Francella. Dot Nice’s niceness to Anna Colella. Blaine Harkness' love for women to Stuart Pollock. Nadeine Reiter's charm to Sylvia Weinburg. Bernie Bentley's dates to Sara Kauffman. Allen Popjoy’s build to Earl Entrekin. Helen Johns' sense of humor to some of the teachers. It may come in handy sometime. Jane Walton and June Pawling s romance to Alice Dennis and Park Moore. Lots of luck! Marion Foreman s superiority complex to whoever needs an extra supply. Sara Showalter s daily French work to the Bulletin Board, where everyone can see it. Grace Moore’s brightness to Nip Westmoreland. He needs it! Hanna Burgess’ blushes to Ross Dague. Helen Lessig’s boy friends to Lillian Bareford. Amelia Mahan's poise to John Kaemfer. Helen Lewis' wit and humor to Edwin Lewis. It must stay in the family. Alvernon Rimel's bashfulness of boys to Lois Henry. Jeanne Pawling's brown eyes to the one who most desires them, but watch out - - . Grant Myers' laziness to Mary Bareford. Amy Murray's girlish figure to Elsie Hashinger. "Wils” Pollock's devilishness to Jack Lamping. Tom Deets “man of the world” air to Arthur Harrison. Walt McClure’s jitney bus to anyone who can afford to keep it in running condition. Marguerite Ames curly locks to Mae Bowman. "Lib” McMenamin's inferiority complex in basketball to Ruth Pannebaker. "Dot" Battin's popularity with the opposite sex of Glen More and West Chester to - - - (maybe she had better keep it) Mary Mahood's permanent wave to the one who needs it more than she. Winifred Bowman’s 'swell' boy friend to all the present Senior girls who admire his car. “Patsy" Myers' ability to keep late hours and still get high marks, to Charles Elston. Neil Trumbower’s thriftiness to the Junior Class. They’ll need it soon. Space being limited here, the worthless and useless habits of the other Seniors are bequeathed to the incoming class as a whole and may they use them to the best advantage of all. Duly signed and witnessed. —Attorney Helen McCardell. '31.

William ...... Resume “Bab”, a vivacious young sub-deb, arrives home unexpectedly, since her school has been closed by an epidemic of measles. Being a very romantic young girl, Bab succeeds in fooling her family into believing she has a lover whom she is going to marry. She buys a picture of a current movie hero and claims him as her fiance. Carter recognizes the actor as a college friend of his and turns the tables on Bab by inviting Guy to the house. Bab is terrified when she learns what a turn events have taken. In attempting to regain one of the fictitious letters written to her fiance, disrupting affairs between her sister Leila and her fiance, Clinton Beresford. In the third act Bab is recovering from an attack of measles and, penitent, succeeds in getting Leila and Clinton safely away to the church where they are to be married. Carter returns to Bab and unexpectedly reveals his love for her. The curtain falls as Bab, the debutante, sobs in her father's arms as her lover goes in search of fame and fortune so he may be worthy of her. Marian Foreman . . Nadeine Reiter Wilson Pollock ... .

Great men-he and Pinchot. “Patsy” Myers in a French Cafe; just another Gigolo. “June” Pawling, head of a big chain of roadhouses, lived in luxury with Jane. Need I mention her last name ? “Dave” Heilig was doing great work as head of the Salvation Army. He says he always liked to stand on street comers as well as shake a tamboureen Blaine Harkness was, would you believe it-the greatest field liner at Shibe Park? Warren Guie was the greatest horse back rider in Ringling Bros. Circus. Coming events cast their shadows before you can see Warren cantering along most any day. “Dot” Battin was following in the footsteps of Gloria Cherry as an Evangelist. Some change from high school days! Amelia Mahan was, at fhe time I was crystal gazing, visiting conductor of the Mastbaum Symphony Orchestra. Helen McCardell working as manager of “Ye Olde Beauty Shoppe”, Bryn Mawr. Franklin Beale hailed as one of the greatest sprinters in the 1940 Olympics. “Bob” Plank as the most outstanding criminal lawyer in New York City. “Wils” Pollock has become head of the “Pollock Airplane Construction Co. Inc.” Nadeine Reiter has taken Dorothy Dix’ place as love correspondent of the Evening Public Ledger. “Chick” Horning has succeeded Mr. Gingerich as football coach at Downingtown. Leta Tweed has gone to ease the pain of the wounded Marines in Nicaragua where the natives are still rebelling Jeanne Pawling is Hollywood’s newest discovery as portrayer of juvenile roles. Weldon Bicking has enlarged the Bicking Stores so that it’s only rival is the American Stores, Inc. “Dot” Nice has become head of one of the most famous detective agencies in Chicago. Dot always loved excitement. Amy Murray has established a business school at the comer of Brandywine Ave. and Main St. with Helen Lessig and Elizabeth McMenamin as her assistants. Winifred Bowman on board an ocean liner enroute for France where she will take up her duties as a dress designer in Lucille’s Shoppe. Jesse Trego, shipwrecked on the South Sea Isles, has bcome chief of a cannibal tribe; we always thought Jesse was awaiting some exciting turn of fate. Bernice Bentley has followed in Miss Lillie Flynn’s footsteps as nurse at D. H. S. Jean Pollock has achieved fame as she has taken home the Blue Ribbon from the State Fair for two years for her excellent cake baking. Annawyn Johnson (We’re in the Navy now), as a Red Cross Nurse, proved too attractive for one marine. Ada Miley has proved to be Ted Lewis’ only rival at playing St. Louis Blues on the clarinet.

( THIRTY THREE )-d\ Tp ri nee eve ‘Was” Charles Martin used to be a prince; that was before his wife died, and he sold his business and became a drunkard. He traveled extensively and upon arriving he was not fit for any further globe-trotting. An old friend attempts to enlist his services as associate editor of a magazine that he controls but is unsuccessful. Then a fairy godmother came to him in the person of a little girl and told him a pitiful story of a fairy princess, who was writing stories in a cheap boarding-house, but was unable to sell them. Martin was interested and after accepting the editorship went to rescue the fairy princess. The boarding-house contained only such individuals as can be found in cheap American boarding-houses; those happy, funny people who live for life only. It contained the fairy godmother, the princess, and an expert in "International Law." Martin succeeds in getting the "International Law” to the proper authorities. and thinks that he has rescued the fairy princess but finds that she didn’t need rescuing as she is a famous authoress, merely looking for background. She gives his heart a new home and thus enacts a lively, interesting and moralizing comedy. Characters Charles Martin . Bland .......... Jack Curruthers . Comfort ........ M iss Vincent . ..

(THIRTY FOUR)(THIRTY FIVE)( THIRTY SIX )^Junior (2fa$5 t3^i$forv The years have a way of rolling on irresistibly. When we timidly entered the first grade, on our first day of school, our entrance into High School seemed in the dim and distant years to come. And our commencement day seemed so far away that its glamor was practically lost by its remoteness. In September, 1928, the halls of Downingtown High School witnessed the entrance of about 75 boys and girls who were the beginning of the class of 1932. The rolling years have carried us through three years of High School and today we stand on the threshold of our senior year, with the once distant Graduation looming large and brilliant ahead. Except for the suppressed excitement usual to the Freshman year, our first year held no incidents of unusual interest. Our Sophomore year saw us assuming definite working order with the election of officers as follows: President .... Vice President Secretary Treasurer Earl Entrekin George Stine . Isabel Wray Alice Dennis Old Rose and Gray were chosen as our class colors, and to inspire us to do our best the motto: . Toil Conquers All Things" was selected. In this year we also wrested from Miss Phillips' Seniors the honor of being the only 100% banking class. Thus causing such a spirit of rivalry in D. H. S. that almost every class came up to the 100% standard. In February we attempted our first class party which was a brilliant success, socially and financially. During our Sophomore year we won $25 in the Hutchison Class Popularity Contest. Our class was increased in the beginning of our Junior year, when we welcomed a considerable number of new members. The class election resulted in the ushering into office of: President .... Vice President Secretary .. . . Treasurer .... George Stine Earl Entrekin . Alice Dennis . Isabel Wray Among the events of this year lingering in our memories are the "Doggie Roast" at Upper Dam. and another successful party held in January. This year we bought our class rings, which are certainly good looking. So far the class of '32 has contributed its share to the school life about it. In athletics, scholarship, dramatics, and music, we have furnished stars. And now just ahead is the greatest adventure of High School Life - our Senior year. —Lillian Bareford, '32. ( thirty seven )oitiorc £K\S io In the fall of 1929, about eighty freshmen entered D. H. S. to pursue the onward trend of their studies. Since that time our number has decreased considerably. Being Freshmen, we were not allowed to have class officers but we did elect Park Moore, chairman. Of course, the Freshmen Reception was held in our honor and some of the boys received free hair cuts. Many freshmen enjoyed the weiner roast. This year we organized and our officers are: President ....................... Park Moore Vice President................... Joe Sciarretti Secretary ....................... Robert Ash Treasurer ....................... Marie Yeager Several Sophomore boys were on the football and basketball teams. Many boys and girls answered to the call of Glee Club and Orchestra. Our first social venture was the Sophomore Party which enjoyed great success. We re pushing onward, hoping to be a credit to D. H. S. —Dorothy Musselman, '33. ( THIRTY NINE )Freshman ClassQ^ve$^tnan The gates of Knowledge that guard our institution opened momentarily to admit the Class of '34. This band of Frosh have yet to prove their worth but an active grip is slowly overtaking the various activities. We possess plausible Girls’ and Boys’ basketball teams and are well represented in the Girl Reserves, also the Dramatic Club. And where would the Orchestra be without Freshman aid? Our colors are Crimson and Silver - the American Beauty Rose is our flower - and the motto: “Ours The Victory." We are endeavoring to maintain the high standards of this institution and hope to improve and be improved by it. —Beryl E. Hurlock, ’34. (FORTY ONE)o A H O !• Eighth GradeNot more than five or six years ago, the Eighth Grade in the Downing-town Public School could very easily be accommodated in one class room, and presided over by one teacher, but that time probably has gone forever. The Eighth Grade at the present time consists of seventy-five pupils and occupies two classrooms. Departmental work is being done in the Seventh and Eighth Grades, and we feel that the children are doing a fine piece of work. Most of these seventy-five pupils are residents of Downingtown, but we have one from West Whiteland and one from East Bradford Township, and three from East Cain Township. Several of these boys and girls play in Junior Orchestra and also in the Band, and can speak very well on an Assembly program. With sincere earnest effort on their part, we are in hopes many of them will enter and be a credit to Downingtown High School at the opening of school in September, 1931.

Spring poured healingly over a budding earth. The Queen of the May is crowned and a day of festivities is inaugurated. The First Annual May Day was held on May 16, 1930. The ceremony was officially opened with a grand parade from the high school building to the scene of the coronation at the East Ward building. The various high school sections, with colorful floats leading the gala procession, with the tuneful melodies of the Band blending to create a perfect atmosphere. Upon arriving at the lower building a series of ceremonies led directly to the crowning of Sara Diffendefer and Charles Horning as Queen and King of the May. The crown heads then sat as judges at the "Trial of Johnny Jones," a health play with a moral. It was characterized with amusing and complicated acting as well as rhythmic dancing. The May Pole Dance was administered by girls of the high school and exercises from each of the grades. But now that the magnificent pageant is verbally told, to whom belongs the credit? With patience as their handmaiden and skill as their guide, Miss Flinn and Mr. Allen successfully directed and staged this colossal outdoor pageant. To their efforts belong the laurels and the praise. (FORTY FOUR)o vc^e$iva^D The High School Orchestra was organized in 1921 by Miss Sylvia Cover, who besides being the director was one of the few members. It has been developing and increasing rapidly since that time, but the orchestra was not very well known in the county until 1928 when Miss Ruth Shumway took charge. The orchestra is very often called to play at many dramatic and social functions of both school and many other organizations of the town. They also played for the Chester County Directors’ Convention in December In 1928 the High School Orchestra won its first honor which was the second prize at the Play Festival where an inter-county scholastic orchestra contest is always held. Since that time it has always won a prize; winning first in 1929, second in 1930. and first in 1931. Through the orchestra work much talent is developed which would probably never have been developed if it were not for the orchestra. It is the duty of every high school student who can play a musical instrument to be in it, and for those who cannot play to ably support it.

Entertainment in the form of the living stage is highly appreciated. During the last semester a proficient dramatic club was organized by Mr. Heffner and Mrs. Hoffman. The students seeming most talented in this art were selected by a series of try-outs. Entertainment and drama are gifts of the ages. From the early drama of the Greeks to the modern musical comedy they are a series of histories, romances and experiences. Drama implies beauty, skill and grace. It trains the actor and perfects public speaking. An experiment performance was wholly successful and proved that D. H. S. was ready and eager for a club that could supply a serious melodrama or a mirthful, side-splitting comedy. From the pathos of Shakespeare to the frivolity of Cohen and Kelly. Among the many performances of the club were: "Inn Scene’’ from David Copperfield", "The King's Fool", Tea and Algebra’, “Too Late for Worcestershire ', “A Lover's Errand’, "The Case of Sophronia’’, and the cyclonic melodrama, “Nevertheless the Villain.” The advisors and the members cooperated every week to present some striking feature. The season was accepted with pleasing results and larger plans are being formed for another theater year. The club wishes only to entertain and make happy the students. It needs your cooperation and solicits your goodwill. If you are dramatically favorable, interview the advisors and perhaps some day you will be a Lon Chaney or a Charlie Chaplin! But until then let's give the actors a big hand . . . Curtain. ( FORTY SEVEN ) {Bop’ (gfee Su The Boys' Glee Club of Downingtown High School has had a very successful season in music.

Rah Rah Team Team, and the warriors rush to the hardened gridiron. The Band strikes up, "When the Blue and Gold Men Fall in Line!" Lusty cheers and waving of pennants are only a peep at the opening of an ever popular football battle. Experiences that are never forgotten are afforded the Band members, while following the team, adding their share of pep and vigor. Who could forget their inspiring music at Coatesville, or that colorful ceremony on Armistice Day? The commanding baton of Amos Miley is as essential as the rudder of a ship, his successful piloting bringing them to ports of rich rewards. Thanks could never be fittingly expressed for his untiring efforts. The twinkling of carnival lights, heated contests, the aroma of strawberries on cream, and marching under the Stars and Stripes to pay homage to our liberators are mere glimpses of that organization’s varied life. The curtain is drawn amid vociferous applause for that organization and it goes into "winter training" only to inaugurate another successful season with the dawning of Spring. President . . . A. B.

(£ootU( 5 tason The football season of Downingtown opened on September 27 when D. H. S. pulled through with a nice victory. In the first quarter. Yohn intercepted a pass and dashed 35 yards to make the first touchdown of the year. In the third quarter, Grant Myers, end, made the second touchdown. Joe Sciaretta dashed through Phoenixville's line for the third touchdown. This was a good opener and a fine brand of football was shown by the 1930 eleven. Downingtown 18 Stevens Trade 0 The same story as last week. Downingtown was much stronger than its opponents. One of the most tricky plays of the season was displayed by Nip Westmoreland when he hid from the Stevens Trade team and caught a long forward thrown by Captain Horning. Many members of the second team played well and Buzzy Yohn was present with his spectacular end runs, one of which resulted in a touchdown. The line held often when the Stevens Trade line threatened. The last touchdown wsa made by the flashy quarterback, Joe Sciaretta. Downingtown 6 West Chester 12 Downingtown High's eleven outplayed and outclassed their opponents in the first half but lost to West Chester in the second half, scoring two touchdowns. Downingtown led in the first half 6-0, our lone score resulting from a forward pass thrown from the arms of Horning to Yohn who dashed across the line for the first tally of the game. West Chester’s first touchdown was scored in the third quarter by an end run. The second touchdown for West Chester came early in the last quarter when Bruno received a pass which was over the goal line. This day will long be remembered as it was an ideal football day. Downingtown 13 Middletown IS Amid the cold winds of Autumn our High School eleven bumped up against the boys from Middletown. Middletown were trailing at the end of the first half, 6-0, Downingtown’s touchdown resulting from a forward pass caught by Mike Mento, but came back in the second half with a very strong rally and scored three touchdowns, all on end runs. After Middletown was done scoring, Downingtown was again moved by the old spirit and scored a touchdown from a forward pass which Mike Mento caught. The first point after the touchdown was then made by Nip. Although Downingtown did not win, they made a very fine showing against the upstate eleven. Downingtown 14 Collegeville 0 This time Downingtown turned the tables and won from Collegeville by the score of 14-0. Touchdowns were made by Nip Westmoreland and Buzz Yohn. Each of the touchdown scorers made an extra point. ( FIFTY NINE ) Downingtown 6 Berwyn 14 On a brilliant Armistice Day, Berwyn High came to the J. Hunter Wills Athletic Field and went home with the American Legion Trophy. The first period of the game was scoreless but on the very first play of the second quarter, Berwyn scored a touchdown. Berwyn also opened up another drive late in the second quarter and had the oval on Downingtown's 18-yard line when the half ended. Early in the second half the opponents partly blocked a Downingtown punt and the ball was given Berwyn on the thirty-yard line. On the next play the right halfback of Berwyn dashed thirty yards for a touchdown. This made Downingtown’s fighting spirit rise and fleety quarterback, Joe Sciaretta, with the ball on Berwyn's nine-yard line, plunged under a mass of players for a touchdown. The biggest crowd of players ever assembled on the Downingtown field were present. There were approximately three thousand fans and there was more school spirit than in any other game on Downingtown's schedule. Downingtown was also one of two teams to score on the county champions and it was the only county team to score on them. Downingtown 0 Coatesville 3 Before a crowd of fifteen hundred fans on a very wet day, Downingtown's powerful eleven held Coatesville to a field goal gotten early in the second quarter. In the first part of the game Downingtown appeared to be the stronger team, and in the second quarter Coatesville threatened and struggled hard but our team were watching. On the last down, Coatesville High booted a field goal. In the last two quarters Downingtown often threatened and twice in the last four minutes D. H. S. was within one yard of the goal line. One of the last plays of the game was when a Coatesville player intercepted one of our forward passes and dashed fourteen yards and was abeut to go for a touchdown when that hefty halfback, Buzzy Yohn, made a flying tackle. The game was a hard fought one and was the first time in five years that our High School suffered defeat by the Red and Black. Downingtown 0 Pottstown 0 On a good old football day, Downingtown High bumped up against the strong Montgomery County team. In the first quarter. Chick Horning was injured and did not appear the rest of the game. George Ciarlone was put in and displayed himself as good material for the 1931 team. This closed our inter-scholastic football season. Downingtown 6 Alumni 0 At a post-season game played for the benefit of the welfare committee of the Lions Club, Downingtown High outplayed and outclassed the old grads, even if they did make a touchdown after the final whistle had blown. D. H. S’s. touchdown resulted from one of Yohn’s spectacular runs. This was the last football game for Captain Charles Horning, fullback; David Heilig, center; Junior Pawling, Newlin Moore, Thomas Deets, and Wilson Pollock. They probably will join the Alumni squad for the 1931 season. This team will long be remembered for its clean fighting spirit and determination, for it proved that victory is not the only principle of Downingtown High's football team.
