Old Father Time, as he wearily approaches a milestone, sees
upon it inscribed "1922." This date carries with it a never-to-be
forgotten event for u 1, the elfz.-:Q of H22-our graduation from North-
ampton High School.
Vile stand now on the verge of success or failure, knowing not
what our fate will be, but it we have our motto 'CI-Ie can who thinks
he can" kept well in mind, we will direct our steps toward success.
As Freshman, we comprised the largest class which had entered
High School up to that time. But, alas, there remain only thirty-
seven out of seventy-seven. Fortunately this number contains
many who are skilled in different kinds of work.
Four of the tive players of the High School Basket Ball Team of
1922 belong to our class. They are NValter Troxell, Paul Reiter,
Calvin Miller and Russel Reichard. On the Girls' Team Mary
Newhard and Evelyn Hunt should he given no little credit.
The Oratorical contest exhibited the talent of the Class in
oratory as well as in the art of designingr. The speakers were well
matched and the contest wa-1 a close one. The stage was decorated
in an entirely different manner from that of preceding years.
The orchestra, which has gained fame during' the past several
years, contains eight of our class mates. They are Pearl Hills,
Samuel Renner, pianists. Alfred Kneeht, Franklin Gergits, Ray-
mond Hoch, violinists. Edgar Yehl, elarinetist. Ralph Luekenbaeh,
John Fedko, drums.
Among the pupils who have displayed their ahility as leaders
are: Bessie Lueks, President ot School Betterment Association,
VVillis Keiser, President of class ol' 1922, John Fedko, Cheer Leaderg
Paul Reiter, Captain Basket Ball Team in 1922, W'alter Troxell,
Captain Basket Ball Team, 1921.
The active work of the Aowakiya Camp Fire Girls, under the
guardianship of Miss Mary E. Kurtz, should also be mentioned.

RUTH NAOMI SCHILLING

This plump little maid with Chestnut brown
hair and laughing eyes 'won ali our hearts when
she entered the school in the middle of our first
year. Since then this country-bred bundle of
happiness has kept us all smiles. She always
has a fund of jokes for every occasion and
event and is a welcome addition to every af-
She is quite popular. She is a member of S.

WILLIS L Kl'lSlR
One of the most note-worthy events that ever
occurred in the history of Newport, happened
in 1904. Willis Keiser was born.
Keiser is bashful Nj. Willis is also very
emotional. When he worked in a blacksmith
shop, a mule presented him with a kick. Willis
.became so emotional over it that it carried
him off his feet.
It takes a hard man to be a class president,
and it takes a hard -man to be student manager
of the basketball team. As Keiser was hard,
he was picked for both.
Willis takes no interest in politics, although
he says he 'd like to meet Mr. Volstead alone
BESSIE ETHEL LUCKS
Bessie is a jolly girl,
As rraro-free as erm. beg
Sho's in for efuery bit of frm,
Always happy as can bc.
Here is our Bessie, who drifted in from
Beaver Nleadow in our Junior year. She has
a host of friends, which proves she is a pos-
sessor of a charming personality. Bessie is
one of the dancing nymphs of our olass. But
she is also a good student and ranks high in
her studies. As President of the School Bet-
terment Association, and as a speaker of the
Oratorical Contest, she has proven her ability
both as a leader and entertainer. The Minutes
of our class meetings will -be preserved for
History by Bessie's faithful pen. The La
Perle has greatly benefited .by her services as
Social Editor. This work will be useful to
her in her future work as a Journalist.
A M PTIQJNNIAN, '22

We now have before us one of the most re-
markable athletes that ever entered Northamp-
ton High. This "modern Apollol' has made a
brilliant reeord for himself and one that he can
be indeed proud of. As a Freshlnzm he first
showed signs of becoming a crack basketball
player, and he has inet all expectations. While
yet a Sophomore, he earned a sub-position on
the V-arsity team, from a large field of candi-
dates. Since then he has held a regular rberth
on the team. He captained the team through
the highly successful season of '20-,21 in a
commendable manner. At baseball, track and
field events, he has also shown his leadership.
His literary qualities cannot .be overlooked,
for "Trocky" does not devote all his time to
athletics. During his Junior year he served as
president of the Literary Society, and acted as
chief librarian of his class for three years.
A more jovial, good-natured fellow cannot
be found, and we hope that some day Troeky
will he acting as head coach at some notable

in our class who does not admire slick hair and

We are fortunate enough to have with us a
young man whose character is free from all
popular fallacies. His .pastime is spent at
solving engineering problems and not in the

Homer, at allltimes, is a quiet and diligent
worker at both studies and school athletics.
His aim is- Industrial Engineering, and he

self in her Freshman year to he leader of the

For the last year, Florence, as assistant liter-
ary editor, has helped in 'making the La Perle

whatever she undertakes she will make :L sue-

' ' Bud ' '
The portals of the Northampton H igh School
unfolded i11 the year of 1918 and adniitted this
young man, an event which raised the standard
of vboth school and class. Bud, as he is best
known -by his friends, did his -bit in all activi-
ties during his four years in high school. He
was President of the class, President of the
Literary Society, Editor, winner of the first
prize in the Oratorieal contest, Business msn-
ziger, President of the School Betterment As-
SOCl11,l1l'0ll, Inter-Class Dehater, everything, ex-
cept third assistant historian..
Bud was a. guard of the Varsity .basketball
team. Although he didn 't make many ipoints,
his defensive playing was excellent. As for
baseball, he held down the position of 2nd
hnse on the team.
Bud contributes thirty eents weekly to "trip
n light fantastic toe." He assists Coleman in
teaching the "Hif-ks ' ' the new Oriental steps.
PEARL IRENE HILLS
" 17 ev' 'na-nie is Pearl,
She is a jewelg
Is the tallr of the school."
Never early, never late, always on time. Such
seems to be the motto of this dark-eyed maiden,
for she lives up to it very Well.
Pearl fa pretty name belongs to a pretty
girl, you knowj is always eheerfulg 'which ex-
plains the reason for her being so popular
among the girls-and lboys.
As to Pearl 'S abilities in flramatics and pub-
lic speaking, anybody ,who counts at all can
tell you of her success in several plays, and
how easily she ran away with second prize in
the Oratorical Contest.
We feel confident that the Campfire Girls
could scarcely get along without her because
of her activity in that organization.
Some people say that a person who can play
the piano well can make the typewriter hum.
lf tha.t's the ease, we know why it is that
Pearl can make the typewriter look like a per-
petual inotion machine.
Pearl expects to be a counuei-cial teacher,
and we are sure she will bc successful if she
should carry out her plans and be as cheerful,
pleasant, faithful and upright as she is now.

This is the man of music and vim,
For you always see him. funlth his violin.
In Chfurch :mil school a-ncl th.eat1'e.S', too,
We hope he'll be happy whatever h.e'II do.
-Alfred was a. very quiet boy in school ,hut
was very musical. He played four years in
the orchestra and was one of the best violinists
that N. H. S. ever had. lt takes one with pep
and ambition to excel him.
His aim is to go to school to learn the art
of a jeweler. Our class knows when Alfred
opens his shop his eye will be open for a sue-
cessful business career.

Bessie is a quiet girl, but sometimes she
get the giggles and it is hard to make her stop.
She is a .good student and is always ready to
lend a helping hand. "Wo'1'k while you work,
and -play while you play," is her motto.
The cam-p fire group is proud to elaim her as
one of their members, for Bessie is faithful to
duty and service, and lived up to the law of
the camp to her best possible ability.
She chose as her line of studies. the commer-
cial course. Some day she expects to work as
a. stcnographer for a reliable firm.
FRANKLIN ROBERT GDRGITS
As a Freshman, Franklin -was very bashful,
but he soon woke up to the fact that it would
not pay. His social duties have never inter-
fered with his studies which are usually com-
plete QCD. He is very fond of Manual Train-
ing and has done splendid work in it.
As one of our first violinists of the school
orchestra, he has, during the four years, help-
ed to make it a success. His musical voice
has also made him famous in the boys Glee
Cluh of which he is -a member.
Some day, perchance, when he has completed
his violin studies and has entered the cultural
world, his name will be flashed in gleaming
lights above the entrance to the Metropolitan

Here is one of the many pretty and famous
girls who hail from thethird ward. She is an
honorary member of the "Chatterbox Club,"
but is otherwise a good girl except when the
teachers aren't around. Her main hang-out is
the movies and she lives up to the motto,
"-Never allow your studies to interfere with
your pleasure." She is a good athlete and
proved it by her work on the class basketball
team for two years. She has ability in speak-
ing and took part in the .Senior Class Play
and in a number of Campfire plays.
Although she has the commercial course, she
intends to enter Normal School next year, and
we all hope she will prove successful as a
SAMUEL RENNER, JR
" Revmer ' '
"Au artist, s-ir, should rest 'Ln art,
And wfuive a little of his claim:
To love the deep 'musical wrt

Renner has hammered his way through high
school. He has been pianist for the high school
orchestra for the past three years. Wherever
there is a noise in the high school Renner is
there, looking innocent. His voiee is always
heard above the rest in the class-room. Samuel 's
future is not known, but we all wish him suc-
cess in whatever he attempts.

in which she took part.

large number of friends, who all wish her a

During his absence comparative peace reigns.
If hc is not seen, he is sure to be heard. If
he was as ambitious in his studies as he is in
fooling he would probably become a shining
light in the world. Shnausie expects to con-
tinue his education in a higher institution. We
are sure he will be successful and we wish
him the best of success.
BE-RNICE HAVVKINS SMITH
' ' Smiles ' '
No matter how dreary the day, the clouds
are sure to break when Bernice come into the
room. She is full of smiles till the bell for
dismissal -has rung. Bernice is a very quiet
girl-O my! yes-Please don't mention it.
She ,is a member of the "Chatterbox Club."
Ever since she entered High 'School, she
has :been very active in Athletics, especially
Baseball. This year she occupied the honor-
able position of pitcher on the Girls' Team.
Bernice has taken the Commercial Course,
but the lure of the hospital is so strong in her
that, in a few years, we may expect to hear
of her as the Assistant to Dr.-- in the great-
est operation ever performed.
MARK CLAYTON NICHOLAS
VVLhen the portals of N. H. S. opened in 1918
to admit us into the rolls of the school, we
found in our midst a diminutive boy by the
name of Mark Nicholas.
Mark was a timid little fellow when he
entered High School but he soon was over this
slight difficulty land was always in with the
Mark is a very stuclious boy and in study
periods can be seen eramming over his books
and very seldom taking his eyes oft' his work.
As he is not adapted to oratory and debating,
he sought the field of athletics. He was star
catcher on the baseball team for two years,
besides, being star guard of the class basket-
ball team. He is also Athletic E-ditor of the
La Perle. ,
Upon leaving his Alma. Mater, he decides to
take np stenographic work and, may our eyes
not go wrong when we gaze upon him as a
head clerk connected with a large firm in
New York or London.
MARY UOROTH Y N E WHARD
' ' Dulvh , ' -
Mary Dorothy Newhard is one of the charm-
ing girls of '22, and we are duly proud of
her. Mary is a very quiet girl-when the
tear-hers are in sight. She has been a promi-
nent member of the Sehool Betternient Associa-
tion for two years, and has done inueh to make
it a success.
"Dutch" is also our star forward on the
basketball team. Her greatest joy is riding
bicycle. rShe is one of the prominent members
of the "Chatterbox Club."
Mary has been a studious girl ail through
her four years and expects to complete her
education in a higher institution, her ambition
being to teach Domestic 4Sce1enee. Stick to it,
Mary, you know a good cook always has I1
host of admirers.
SAMUEL B SUHAADT
A MP'l'ENNIA'N, '22
' ' Shats ' '
Lo and be-hold-at the beginning of our
Senior year there came into our class a gradu-
ate from the University of Coplay, who did
not take long to display his Academic skill and
also to make friends.
Sam had an idea he could play -basketball,
but he soon found out his feet were in his way
so he had to drop it. Had he been with us
for four full years, he might have been a star.
Shatz made a wonderful invention in chem-
istry. It is a new method to break test tubes.

he will be the greatest chemist N. H. S. has

Alma. is a dutiful child who is seen but not
heard, za. fact th-at endeurs her to the hearts of
many. She blushes red as 21 rose at any slip
and glances up under her brown lashes in a
most innocent manner. -
However, Alma is business-like and taps the
typewriter keys and seriblales shorthand at ei
surprising rate. Alma. intended to become a
stenogra.pher until she heard of those bad, had
bosses. Now she will probably stay home nn-
nler her mother's wing.

came to us four years ago from Wilmington,
Delaware. Her residence in Cementon, during
her course here, has helped put that small town
on the map. She is one of the few in our
elass who has devoted most of her time Cwhen
she wasn 't doing something elsej to her studies.
She ranks among the highest in all her classes,
and during her eoursc, she has shown a great
liking for Latin, .being the only one in the
class who completed the four year Latin course.
She also was very fond of Solid Geometry and
As literary editor for the La Perle, she has
done excellent work, having contributed some
of the interesting short stories published in it.
She expects to study art, and we feel sure
she will make a success of it, for the ents that
she has made for the school paper show that
she is talented along that line.

Boney, was ft pretty good fellow during his
High School career. Boney, as we know him,
was the sort of fellow who had his own way of
thinking and looked at things in his own dif'
ferent light. One of Boney 's great difficulties
was to keep quiet while in school. If you
could not see him in his class room, you surely
could expect him having a conversation in the
hall, or else having an argument.
Boney was a star in athletics, as he served
two years on the N. H. S. Baseball team, and
two years on the N. H. S. Basketball team.
He also took part in track work. Besides his
athletics, he showed his ability in the school
paper, La Perle, for he was our class editor
and exchange editor. Above all, he was a
great debater, for he was our main stand-by
in the Junior-Senior Inter-Class Debate.

part in the intereclass debate. We wonder
what our Kreidersville girl will do when she
is graduated and will not be able to ramble
down in her Ford limousine every day. Grace
is one of the good sports in the class. She
never misses a game although she lives out of

Ladies and Gentlemen:
I am exceedingly fortunate and very happy to be back in
good old Northampton. Understand, Northampton is my native
burg, and I was once a member of the Northampton High School
graduating class of 1922. Seventeen years have passed since my
graduation, and I am now about to lecture on, t'Thc Class of '22
and its Destiny." I am greatly interested in the subject, as I pre-
sume every other post-member will be.
You no doubt will remember that about sixteen years ago Japan
had a little diiiieulty in agreeing with the Arms Conference at Wasli-
ington, D. Cl., concerning the naviei. VVell, I amicably adjusted the
matter for them, and since His Majesty, the Emperor of Japan,
thought me rather intelligent looking, he requested me to accompany
him to Japan. VVe sailed in September, 1922. By industry and dili-
gence I arose rapidly and, since May, 1914, have been the head
street cleaner in Tokio. After these many years of faithful service,
the Emperor granted me a year's leave of absence for the purpose
of visiting my native land, inspecting the Panama Canal, and also
to secure American teachers for a new school which he Wishes to es-
tablish. I determined to come home by traveling westward, and
thus tour the world. lt nas on this journey, which I have just
completed, that I saw many of my former class-mates.
I left Tokio on October 20th last, and took passage at Yolca-
hama for Hong Kong. As I was promenading the deck the follow-
ing morning, I gave a whoop of joy, for there on a large coil of
rope sat John Fedko. I-Ie told me that he had a monopoly of the shoe
shining business on that line of steamers. I asked him how many
assistants he had. Ile replied, "Oh, I can tend to the business all
myself." Unfortunately I didn it meet any of my class-mates at
Hong Kong. I continued traveling westward, through the Philli-
pine Islands, t"Talcu1ta and Cairo. I also visited the Sphinx and the
On the 13th of November I took a flying trip to see the Olympic
Games at Athens. Upon arriving there, I was pleasantly surprised,

for whom should I sec but Mary Newhard. It will be remembered
Mary was the speedster of our Class. She won the hundred yard
dash, defeating over 53 contestants. Her time being 4 seconds. I
was still more glad to have been there, when Bertha Bamford won
the half-mile race in 39:2 minutes. And then Isabel Miller put the
sixteen pound shot 101 ft. 6 and one-sixth inches. Besides her ath-
letic prowess, Isabel is an itinerant minister in Arizona.
On Thanksgiving day, as I was enjoying a gondola ride in Ven-
ice, I viewed a large banner suspended over the Grand Canal, on
which was painted,

I did not see anyone else of our class until about the middle ot
January when, as I was standing along a curb in Paris, a large auto
drove up. Directly, a faultlessly dressed individual daintily stepped
from the car, and turned to survey me. No sooner did she do so than
I recognized her at once. She said, "Here is my card," on which I
read: Madam Florence Richards, Designer of Gowns. I had quite
a talk with her, and she told me all about her business. At Heidel-
berg, Where I went to see if I could obtain additional points for es-
tablishing the Emperor's school, whom should I Hnd occupying a
professor 's position but Hattie Behringer. I asked her it she would
consent to be one of the instructors in the new school, to which she
replied in the affirmative. Now she is engaged as professor of Eco-
In one of the Berlin newspapers I noticed that Homer Weist was
running the largest delieatessen shops in that borough. He had a
specialty on cheese, the ad saying: "We carry on hand 673 differ-
ent styles, breeds and species. Cheese modified to suit any taste."
I arrived in London in February. Naturally, the Hrst thing I
did was buy a newspaper. No sooner had I done so, than I saw
in large glaring letters: "American Girl to Wed Prince of
Whalez, one of thc highest peers in England." I looked anxiously
for the girl 's name, and found it to be Bessie Lucks. I was.so ab-
sorbed in the account that I forgot to stop the taxi, which was al-
ready several blocks past my destination.

O11 February 25th I boarded the American steamer, President
Wilson. I discovered that Samuel Sehaadt, Jr., was the ship phy-
sician. The crew call him "Butch," so he must be quite a surgeon.
Sam told me that when a mast is broken or disabled he often has to
act as substitute.
After an uneventful trip, which I thoroughly enjoyed, I reached
the United States, March 4th, and never, my friends, did I feel more
drawn to that starry banner, the Red, White and Blue, than when I
saw it floating from every masthead as we stea.med into New York
The first thing I did in New York was to register at the Astoria.
I started out on a sight-seeing trip early the next morning. As I
was walking along, I noticed a large theatre on Broadway, almost
hidden by signs advertising the Northampton County Dramatic
Company 's ability. The name suggested that the Company was com-
posed of Northampton County residents and I was positive that
the dramatic talent of our class could not have been overlooked.
In this I was not disappointed, for just then I saw coming out of
the stage door Gertrude Cooper and Pearl Hills. Before long we
were relating to each other our past experiences in public life. They
also informed me that Alfred 'Kneeht was the musical director. I
learned later what fabulous salaries Gertrude was drawing for her
lightning sketches. Among other things, the girls also informed me
that Edgar Yehl was Salvation Army Captain in the City of Laurys,
and that he was very wealthy. I also met Fred Coleman in New
York. You know, Fred was always inerested in Woolworth's and
now he has one of the highest positions in the great Woolwortli
building. I-Ie winds the clock. This happens only once a day, how-
ever, and in the interval he runs a pie factory at Coney Island. Fred
told me that David P. Kuntz had gone out West, and was now Gov-
ernor of United States possessions on Mars.
On March 18th, as I was walking through the City Hall in
Philadelphia, I met an important looking individual whom I knew
at once to be Paul Rieter. He is the successor to Penrose in Pennsyl-
vaniays political affairs. I had business to transact in the Post Oiiiee
Building and was surprised to see a hand-bill on the door of the ele-
vator, which read thus: "VVhy Stay Small?" This coupon, with
AMPTENNIAN, '22 Tlrirty-vzina
your name, address, and 500 sent to Dr. Raymond Leibcnguth, 1012
Penn Square Bldg., will tell you how ,to increase your height." I
was very sorry that I hadn't time to call upon him and see if he
practiced what he preached.
It will be remembered that Walter Troxell was our star Basket
Ball player seventeen years ago. Well, the star is still shining. He
now managing the athletics at Yale, and they wouldnit give him
up for the love of money.
I have now to announce that Calvin Miller has Won the worldls
speed typewriting contest. He is now demonstrating a typewriter
ot' his own invention. lt is called the Millerograph, which adds,
subtracts, multiplies, and divides, writes four different languages,
and also can be used as a cash register, safe, and, with several at-
tachments, can very readily be used as a Ford runabout.
Remembering that I was to inspect the Panama Canal, I decided
to start as soon as possible, so on May lst I left for the Canal. Hav-
ing arrived in Chicago, I picked up a Chicago paper with this
startling headline: "Horrible Accident! A man by name of Luck-
enbach narrowly escaped death." I set out for the hospital and
found my suspicions were justified. That Ralph Luckenbach is not
now in the Happy Hunting Grounds is a miracle. He got up the
idea of having compressed dynamite, and tried to perfect his scheme
by using an anvil and a t.welve pound sledge hammer. The next
moment Ralph was soaring into space. I fear compressed dynamite
will never bc a success.
Another article I saw in the paper was, "The Battle Creek
Breakfast Co., Willis Keiser, Owner, acquittedf, It appears that
this well-known company had for years put on the market a break-
fast food which was made of pulverized cork. Suit was brought by
the Pure Food Commission, but the company hired the services of
Grace L. Kern, a prominent lawyer of Washington, D. C., and she,
through her keen and masterful arguments, proved that cork is just
the thing for a sinking condition of the body. She showed that many
people's lives have been saved by cork life preservers.
At St. Louis I secured a magazine called the Western Times.
I was very much amazed when I saw the first article which read,
"The Mormons are planning to move from Utah to Siberia, under the

I arrived at the canal just nine days after I started. I boarded a
launch and accompanied an excursion on that artificial body of H20.
I was standing there on the small vessel, when somebody tapped me
on the shoulder. Turning around l behld Samuel Renner. He said
he was now a Civil Engineer.
I returned to Nortliampton by way of Florida. At Vifashington
If saw Senator Hoch, of Pennsylvania. Raymond followed his father
into politics and won the support of all thc polls by his faithful
public service as milkman. Ho is the youngest Senator at Wasil-
ington and bids fair to be rc-elected. I
My work being completed, I returned to Northampton on May
21st, About the first thing l' did was, visit the High School. Just
as I entered, Prof. Frankenfield came out of his office. He had not
changed much and was very glad to sec me. He invited me to come
in and have a talk. I did so, told him about the Emporer's school and
then asked him whether he would not consent to be president of the
College. He replied that he felt greatly honored, but that he was
satisfied with his position here and, besides, he wouldn't like to
leave his family. He gave me some of the addresses of my class-
mates and I started out in quest of them.
Going down Main Street, I niet Alma Beil. She is now stenog-
rapher in a Real Estate Office, but--I got. her consent to become in-
structor of phonography in the Emperor's College.
I hea.rd that Northampton was the home of the only man to
circle the world on a bicycle, riding at the rate of sixty miles a day.
Mark Nicholas, who accompanied this feat, was one of '22, Farther
up on Main St., I noticed this sign:
Second-hand Furniture Bought and Sold"
Helen told me she was going to start a dog and cat hospital
shortly, and an asylum for crippled chickens. May she prosper in
fuer noble work.
It was almost dinner time and I began looking around for a
place to eat. I wash 't looking long when I was attracted to a sign,
AMPTENNIA N, ,22 Forty-one
'tYe Village Tea House." The show windows looked very appetiz-
ing a11d I went in. I was surprised to see Lena Kuntz established as

John Schall is a prohibition officer in the Sahara Desert, and

VVanamakers. Glad to hear it, May, keep it up.

full menagerie. I thank you. Ruth Schilling.

The years that have passed since our entrance to High School,
Are gone like a dream, and now we are here,
To take and accept all our friends' 21d11ll1'?li'l01l,
Wlio've gathered to see us, from far and from near.
lVe bow to their praises, tho, all the while knowing,
That fully we merit the praise they 're bestowing,
And that we deserve all the love they are showing,
As we enter the world ls bnsy life without fear.
Although we are glad a new life to be startingg',
We cannot help feeling' a pang of regretg
And unbidden tears will arise at the parting
From teachers and classmates and friends we have met.
But let us be cheerful and clown with all sorrow,
To-clay we'll be happy, no trouble we'll borrow,
For trouble enon,e,'h will come with the morrow
No matter in what place our way may be set.
Here 's a health to our classmates, and one to our teaehersg
And one to the clear ehnms whose friendship we prizeg
They have been to us all more like brothers than preachers:
And bacl luck to the one who this statment denies,
VVe've been led along but have never been driveng
To class and to pleasure onr best we have giveng
To reach the high goal with our might we have striven,
And now on himself only, each one relies.

ln 1922 we furnished one regular and two subs, who did much
for the basketball team.
Our Interclass Basketball honors faded this year, due to a radi-
cal mistake. But this doesn't make us fret. Our reason f-or giving
the cup up this year was: We won the cup in our Freshman year and
our motto is, f'Do unto others as you would that they do unto you."
We wanted the cup, but. seeing we couldn't get it, we gladly gave it
up to others.
We have a competent Tennis team to put to market this year and
our -boys will play hard in the Tennis Tournament.
Our Class is also taking active part in non-athletic afctivities about
the school. The first thing which is of note is the N. H. S. Cafeteria.
which is almost entirely run 'by the Sophomore girls. Every one who
was accustomed to eating here fell for the cooking. Our class furnish-
ed a number of La Perle staff officers including the Editor-in-Chief.
ln S. B. A. matters our class is not left out, each representative
doing his or her part faithfully. We furnished the Vice-President.

HISTORY OF CLASS 1925
Northampton High School opened her gates, one beautiful day
in September, to seventy-seven new students whose name, after they
had entered the high school building, 'became the Freshman Class.
There were so many of us that thc upper classmen trampled all over
us the first few days. Finally, we 'became accustoinecl to the daily
routine, and now we believe that Northampton High School eoulrl not
exist without us.
Freshman life in Northampton High School will soon be over,
for the days and weeks have flown so rapidly that we can hardly
realize that soon fwe will be Sophomores. Z
Although our class is not organized, we have a representative l'ody
by the name of the "Council" to perform our Class's most important
The orchestra profited greatly by the new members from our
class who joined it. The famed musicians are: Elizabeth Newhard,
pianist, Renia Guth, celloistg George Snyder, saxaphonistg Robert
Klotz, banjoistg Arthur Young, Ruth Newharcl, and Violet Rupp,
We have a fine boyls basketball team. They captured the inter-
class cup, thus proving the Freshmen, although green, are capable of
accomplishing great tasks and receiving honors. The team which
won fame for us has the following Freshmen as its members: Thomas
Fluck, Arthur Young, Harold R. Snyder, Samuel Weiss, Clarence
Clliristlnan, Frank Herman, Charles Hoats, and Henry Rabenold.
We have eontridnited two members, Arthur Young and Samuel
We-iss, to the Varsity team. The girl 's team was not so successful as
the boy's'team, but there are three more long years in which to re-
Even though :we are miserable little Freshmen, the upper classes
have great respect for us, giving us a grand time at the party held
in our honor. ln other events we were always included.
We did our best to help all other kinds of entertainment by tak-
ing part in the B. S. A. Bazaar, "Pan" the cantata, and "Miss Cherry-

It is most deplorable that former schoolmates or classmates, hav-
ing once become memibers of the Alumni, pass out into the world and
lose sight of each other, save for the few times a year when they meet
at the social gatherings of the Alumni Association. Yet, this is exact-
ly what happened and is happening even now. We might think of
a number of methods by -which We might combat this evil, but, for
the present, let us content ourselves with but one, and that one
method is publicity in the form of the statistics which appear from
month to month.
However, even statistics demand a certain amount of system in
their arrangement. Therefore, what better way is there than to
start these statistics 'with the record of the last class to be admitted
to the Alumni Association, the class of '21. Though having gradu-
ated from high school less than .a year ago, we can feel sure that
much remains to be known about the new spheres of life in which

TI-IE REAL GIRL
Constance tried a pink bow at her collar, but discarded it, and
put on a sober one of black velvet. She put three invisible hairpins
in a rebellious strand of hair. She scrutinized her gloves for a pos-
sible treacherous rip, and finding none she turned slowly before the
glass with an anxious eye ou the effect of her costume.
"Miss Reyburn, do you think I'll get it?" she demanded, turn-
ing suddenly to the lady who sat by the window.
"If she could know the real girl you would certainly get it,"
said Miss Reyburn warmly.
That was comforting in a way, yet on second thought, not so
comforting. Constance knew she was shy, and that she really never
got acquainted at all with some people. She was suddenly assailed
with doubts. She looked in the glass, and saw an ordinary looking
young person who, on occasion, might appear awkward and stupid.
And Mrs. Elson was so particular. Miss Reyburn looked, and saw
a sweet, dainty girl, whose pleasant expression bespoke a never-
failing kindness. Just now the girl was at her worst through doubt
and tiinidity. But Miss Reyburn wisely added no admonitions as to
"Remember, Constance, that you are well prepared to teach,
and that you have Miss Irving's warm recommendation."
"And yours also," said Constance, with a smile breaking
through. HI ought to get any kind of a position on two such recom-
mendations as these. I do hope I shall succeed. I've prayed for
Fifty-six AMPTENNIAN, '22
'tYou'd better pray for the place that's best for youf' said Miss
Reyburn. "Now, good-bye, child, and my best wishes go with you."
But when Constance was gone she shook her head. 'fShe lacks
self-confidence and Mrs. Elson needs to be impressed," said the little
teacher. "But I know there 's a place for a girl like Constance."
Constance took her way from the school grounds toward the
colony of summer cottages' about a mile away. She had graduated
from the Irving School that June, but, unlike the other girls, there
was no home for her to go to. Her mother had been a classmate and
close friend of Miss Reyburn and Miss Irving, and it was the kind-
ness of these two that had kept Constance in the splendid school.
But now she felt that she must hasten to make her own way. Mrs.
Elson was looking for a governess for her small daughter, and Miss
Irving had spoken of Constance for the place. She was on her way
for the interview that morning.
A maid in stiff, white cap and apron showed Constance in, and
said Mrs. Elson would be down in a few minutes. Constance sat
down, and tried to acquire a calm and ladylike repose. But her
heart jumped at every step on the stair and she could feel her
color rising. "I'1l look hurried and hot and fru1npish," she thought
Mrs. Elson's minutes were long. A group of children came
within range of the open French window. There were two boys of
perhaps ten years, dressed in Indian suits, a girl of six, who was
protesting and crying, and a boy of about four, who tagged, puppy-
like, behind the others. Constance leaned forward with interest.
"You gotta be it," cried one boy.
"I don 't want to," protested the girl.
"Aw, let her go, and she can 't never play with us any more,"
said the other.
"Yes, I will play with you, too," cried the girl.
"Then you've get to be a captive and be burned at the stake."
There was a fresh howl at this. Constance slipped out of the
French window. "I know a lots better Indian game," she said.
They looked her over with approving eyes. "Tell it," said Roy
"Let the girl be the Indian princess, who is to give the prize.
AMPTENNIAN, '22 Fifty-seven
Let her sit on this big stone. Then you boys do the
corn-dance for her. You can play there lots more of you.
Here are some more to help you now," and Constance heck-
oned to another small Indian and a neglected-looking little girl who
lingered watching. The two girls sat on the big stone, and the boys
prepared for the corn-dance.
"How do you do it?" asked Ralph.
"This way," said Constance, illustrating the skipping step. and
The boys were charmed, and fell into step innncdiatcly, enliven-
ing the proceedings with Indian yells. The tiny boy joined, and
presently the girls slipped off the rock, preferring to be actors rather
t'You be the princess," panted Roy.
"All right," said Constance, enthroning herself and cheering
the performers on. Upon this scene fell a. frigid voice. "Did you

Constance felt as if all her blood were rushing to her face.
"I am Constance Wo1'th," she stammered. "I came to see about
the situation as governess. Miss Irving thought-" Here she came
to a full stop, and mutely extended the recommendations, which she
fished out of the bag.
"Ah! I see," said Mrs. Elson, adjusting her eye glasses. "I
remember Miss Irving spoke of you." She glanced at the paper,
then lowered it to look at Constance. "I don 't think you will do,
Miss Worth. To be quite frank, I fear you would be lacking in dis-
cipline, and I make a great point of discipline. I require a certain
amount of dignity and poisef' She waited a moment. t'W:1s there

"No, Mrs. Elsonf' murmured Constance.
"Then, good afternoon." .
The children with Constance waited until the lady disappeared
in the French window :
"Say, will you play again. they demanded, turning to ier.
Constance hadn't much heart for play. But the mischief was

equal to it."
Instead of taking time for consideration, like a self-possessed
young person, Constance looked up with tears in her eyes, and said,
"Oh! I'll like to come very much."
"Very well, I'll drive over to the school this afternoon and talk
with Miss Irving, and then I'll make my arrangements with you."
Constance fairly flew back. She was i11 a hurry to talk with

she concluded her story, with her sunniest smile. "And I like the

that's what usually happens."

THE LADY OF LALOA
Just the other day .I met Charlie Underwood at the club. It
was the first time I had seen him since he had returned from the
South Seas where he had gone to recover his health.
Although he appeared much stronger, he seemed to me to have
aged greatly in those few months. There was a harassed, anxious
look about his face which showed many new wrinkles. I commented
on the fact, but he seemed to pay little attention to my remark.
HI wonder if you wouldn't do a little favor for me?" he asked.
interruptingly me rather abruptly.
-Wl1611 fl had replied afhrmatively, he quickly led me to one ot
those small, private rooms the club furnishes for the convenience
of its patrons, and going: in, closed and locked the door. Rather
mystified at his peculiar actions, I complied with his wish to sit
down in a comfortable arm chair near the open fireplace and to
light my pipe. Underwood stood on the hearth, a long, gaunt, sol-
"Fd like you to keep these for me, old manf' he began, hand-
ing me a tiny mother-of-pearl box, fastened with golden clasps. He
quickly pressed a certain spot with his thumb nail and the lid
sprung up revealing a minute ivory image of a woman. The whole
box was not more than an inch square, the likeness was less than
three quarters of an inch and was ingeuiously fitted in a grove the
exact shape and size of the ivory woman. The carving was won-
derfully life-like and exact to the minutest detail. Wliile I was
exclaiming over the beauty of the miraculous work, Underwood
lifted up the image and its compartment disclosed four unparalled
rubies. I am not a connoisseur of precious stones, but l instinctively
knew that nowhere would there be found a ruby to equal any of
those four that glittered up at me like so many drops of pure blood
in the sunlight.
"Looks as though your trip might have been rather profitable,"
I commented, after I had finished exclaiming over the marvelous
"Maybe," he answered rather grimly, Hbut I'd sell my soul to
have this contraption back in the old ruined temple of Laloa, where

it came from, O God, but I was a foolf, Inconsistently he laughed
a laugh that caused me to frown and examine his eyes sharply. For
a moment there was a look in them I did not like. Then it was he

"The little schooner, 'Adagof put nie and my baggage oif on
the two by four wharf of Laloa, where it stops every month.
The whole town met me on the deck and gaped with curiosity, for
they had seen very few white men. As he had written, David Thorpe
met me and took me to his hut. He looked very much as if mission-
ary work agreed with him and he was the same good fellow he was
back in the old Princeton days. Of course, he was delighted to hear
from the outside world and kept me almost a week answering his
questions. However, I finally managed to examine my surroundings
and the village-hardly a Village though, since it was only a half-
dozen huts, containing about three dozen adults, and ten times as
many pick-a-ninnies, little brown things, that were always under the
foot. The natives seemed quite friendly chaps, willing to examine
and admire me and everything I wore.
"The first month or so passed along easily. I smoked, read,
walked and slept, mostly the last. However, things were getting
very boring when Dave roused my interest by saying the islandcrs
were preparing for a leopard hunt. I waited impatiently for the
day, in the meantime cleaning and re-cleaning my rifle and colt. At
last the day arrived when we started off into the jungle. Almost
all the men and rboys of the litte village went along. We were fifteen
men strong, including Dave and me. Traveling through the dense
jungle with foot trippers everywhere, was hard for a tenderfoot like
me, but I managed to keep up appearances and let no one know of
the hard knocks I received right and left. Hunting is something of
a recreation for those islanders so we took the journey by easy
stages and only madea few miles during the first morning. N0 leop-
ard tracks had as yet been found and, in fact, none were expected
until we had gone at least ten miles toward the opposite end of the
"It was that very afternoon I made my first discovery. W'hile
the natives were preparing their noon meal I wandered oif a bit
JXINTPTENNIAN, '22 Sfifnty-one
toward thc top of a hill. Suddenly something caught my eye. Thru
the jungle and up the hill there ran a narrow path that looked as
though it were very seldom used. The path itself would not have
struck me as peculiar, if there hadn't been carved on a large tree
bordering the way the image of a woman, like you just saw in
the box. It was large and wonderfully worked. I was sure none
of the natives I. knew could have done itg it was the work of a master
hand. Underneath the figure were a number of symbols, unintelligi-
ble to me. Because the image seemed to guard the entrance of the
path, I walked on up the hill. I reached the top and-stopped in
surprise. A foot before me a cliff bordered with great bushes that
concealed the edge, dropt down a sheer fall of at least two hundred
feet. It formed one side of a Wall of precipices that inclosed a deep
valley, about a mile wide and two miles long. And, the shut his
eyes as though he saw the pictures before himj, in the middle of the
flat plain that formed the iioor of the valley was built what looked
like a mass of glistening silver rocks, piled up by a giant 's hand. I
could see that it was some sort of a crudely made, but immense
building, but nowhere could I perceive any human being, although
some of the fertile valley land seemed in a rude stage of cultivation.
For a long time I stood there watching the unchanging scene and
wondering how a descent into the valley might be accomplished.
Suddenly I turned and my foot caught in something almost causing
me to fall. I looked down and saw a rusty iron ring. I dropped on
my knees and tugged at the ring. Wit.l1 a start it came up with a
slab of rock and threw me back-wards. Hnrriedly I arose and
peered down the hole left by the slab. R-ungs of a ladder extended
as far down as I could see. It must be t.he way to that mysterious
"Thrilled at my chance discovery, I decided to go back to the
camp and tell Dave what I had found and to ask his opinion about
descending and exploring. Although I was a full mile from the
camp I covered the distance through the jungle in a short time, fol-
lowing marks I had slashed on trees to keep myself from being lost.
I rushed up shouting and then stopped in dismay. The camp was
empty! Not a soul to be seen! A flutter of white on a tree caught
my eye. It was a note Dave had left, saying that a scent of game
Si,pty-tfw0 AMPTENNIAN, '22
had .been picked up and as I was nowhere around and no time was
to be lost, he and the natives were going to follow it up and return
as soon as possible. I was to wait there.
"Wa.it! No, that was impossible! From my knapsack I took a
fiashlight and my Colt. Then I started off, my riiie in my hand.
E'I lo-st no time in going to the secret ladder and beginning to
climb down. The rings were slimy and the passage musty and damp,
but in my great excitement I scarcely noticed those facts. Soon be-
low me, I saw a faint glimmer of day-light that steadily grew strong-
er as I went down. At last I stepped on ground and discovered my-
self in a. small cave-like room with a hole cut through the rock to
admit air and light. Before me stood a massive door in the center
of which was again a carving of that mysterious woman. Seeing no
knob or latch of any sort, I pushed thc door which easily and quietly
gave way, disclosing a long, dark tunnel. I was stumbling along the
rough ground making good use of my flash-light, when suddenly I
heard the sound of low chanting and saw a faint glimmer of light.
Cautiously advancing I soon found myself behind what appeared to
be an altar, on which sat a life-size form of that mysterious woman
carved from marble, and this cursed box I hold. I crouched low in
the darkness and examined my surroundings. The room was circu-
lar and tapered up into a dome, the walls and floor were pure mar-
ble and the top of the ceiling was studded with flashing jewels. Ex-
cept for those and the altar, the place was bare of all decoration and
was lit merely by flaming torches. I was puzzled over the peculiar
fact that there were no doors in the room, when suddenly opposite
me, I saw the marble wall slowly moving. The crack so formed
opened and through it came the most wonderful woman this earth
ever cherished. Straight, supple, graceful, with midnight hair and
eyes, crimson lips, and dazzling white skin! Her features were per-
fect, simply without a flaw! Suddenly I recognized her as the model
of the image on the tree and door and altar!
"Wliile I lay silently behind the base of the altar, she came up
chanting and, dressed in her flowing white robes and weighted with
gleaming jewels, she knelt and laid garlands and food at the foot of
the goddess. Then quietly she arose and, as the marble wall rolled
back, she left. I have never seen her since, except in my dreams,
AMPTENNIAN, '22 Sixty-three
but every fea.ture is as clearly defined in my mind as it she stood bc-
fore me in all her glory. '
"I Waited for a few moments hoping she might appear again,
but, fearing that Dave might return and become anxious at my ab-
sence, I turned to leave. Suddenly some evil thought made me
remember the little box that lay on the altar. I picked it up and
tried unsuccessfully to open itQ Stung by curiosity, I most foolishly
resolved to take it with me and to find its contents.
"Wl1c11 I finally reached the upper air again, breathing heavily
from my long climb, I put back the slab of rock and hastened toward
the camp. The natives and Dave had already returned and were
preparing supper when I arrived and began to blurt out the story
of my discovery. But, to my surprise, the one native who under-
stood English fell on his knees, shrieking and calling upon his com-
panions to follow him. Dave grew pale and grasped me by the arms
shouting hoarsely: 'lVIan, man, what are you trying to bring on our
heads? God, what a crime you' have committed! Know you, man,
you have entered the holy temple of lialoa, Where no mortal can
trespass? Know you, your life lies in the hands of the priests, who
will follow you ever for vengeance? Leave, man, leave! Save your-
self, if you can! Luck it is that the Adago comes tomorrow.
"He hastily prepared to leave, while the islanders still knelt moan-
ing and howling and shrinking away from mc. Dazed, I followed
Dave through the thick jungle to the little village that nestled on
the shore. The missionary explained to me as best he could, the
feeling of the superstitious natives toward the mysterious temple
back in the valley, how no one had ever entered the temple or had
seen the priests and priestesses, who had lived in the ruins from
time immemorable, each generation having for its head the most
beautiful woman of the tribe and, through some peculiar circum-
stance, every high priestess had resembled those preceding her. It
was evident that the wonderful woman I had seen was the present
high priestess, the Lady of Laloa, for whom I would give my soul
"And so it was that the next day I left with the little schooner,
and not until we had lost sight of the green island of Iialoa, did I re-
member the little box I had taken and forgotten to show to David
Sfi,pfy-f0m- AhTP1'ENNIiIN, '22
Thorpe. On the return trip I amused myself by dreaming of my
beautiful Lady of Laloa, and fooling with the box, until I found
its secret opening.
"It is three months since I left that island so hastily and until
a few days ago, I have been undisturbed, but now-I am followed,
my every movement is watched, I dread the night. I see dark-faced,
white-robed figures! I am afraid-afraid!"
Here Charlie dropped into a chair, with his elbows on his knees
and his face in his hands. For a moment he sat so, then bracing him-
self, he asked me again to take the box..
I, too, was afraid, I had not visited India without learning the
vengance of the brown-skinned races. Accordingly, I refused to
take the deadly box, but advised him to put it in his safe deposit
drawer and to consult with the police. He promised he would and
then we parted, he to hurry home shuddering at every shadow, I
to sit and muse over the tale and try to find a way to help my friend.
Yesterday I heard of Charlie Underwood's death, plunged into
his heart was a dainty stiletto, on whose handle was carved the
image of a woman. Yet on l1is lips was a smile and pressed in his
hands was a little piece of silk cloth. The porter says he admitted
an unknown woman, whose face was hidden by a veil, that he caught
but a glimpse of black hair and great, dark eyes. One woman alone
could have caused Charlie Underwood to die with a smile on his
lips. She is the Lady of Laloa.
' -Gertrude L. Cooper, 22.
Throb-throb-throb, another short breath, another sob, a gasp,
and there were four Pennsylvania girls, stranded with their almost
gasless automobile on a lonely mountain in Maine.
They had left home for a camping trip, a few days after the
schools had closed, for they were all teachers. The girls had been
traveling for three weeks, buying their l'grub" along the way and
using any convenient wood or Held as their lodging place.
AMr'rENN1.xN, '22 Sindy-y'ifz-c
It was four o'eloek on this particular day when our story opens.
As the ear had come to a standstill the girls breathed a deep sigh
and slowly started to untwine themselves from the many trappings.
Eleanor Kent, the girl at the wheel a11d owner of the ear, turned to
the rest. '
"If you had held your breath all the way up as 1 told you to,
we'd be at the top of the mountain and richer by a few drops of
gas. But you didn't, so you 'll have to get ont, that 's all there is to
it. You could try to flood the carburetor by jumping on the running
board there, Ruth. It might do some goodf'
Ruth turned to the right hand of the ear, jumped up and down
on the running board but to no avail. "It's no use," she said, stop-
ping for breath, "we might as well back down the hill and park in
that small cleared plot for the night. I didn't see any 'no parking'
sign there. But talking about breathing, did you think we were
balloons, that hill is half a mile long."
"Oh, I'll forgive you," said Eleanor, as she slowly let the car
hack down the hill. At the bottom they began to prepare their suite
"Hattie," said Eleanor, "make your daily inventory."
This wa.s a standing joke, for Hattie always kept a. list of arti-
eles which she inspected every night to be sure they had not dropped
part of their lodging room arong the road. The list consisted of:
1 Ford Sedan with tools, etc.g 1 tent, which could be erected over the
car at night with sleeping room for two 011 each side, and which
could be strapped to the running board during the day, 4 cotsg 2
candle lanterns: 2 'stuffed' suitcasesg 1 Sterno stove, 1 hatehetg 1
revolver and 1 box of matches, last but not least, a few dollars.
They soon had the tent erected and supper made over the camp
fire. Ruth and Hattie decided to take the lantern and follow a lum-
ber path to see if they could find a hut or house where they could
They had been following for the last half hour, through the
darkness-for they had forgotten to bring matches-what they be-
lieved to be a path. Suddenly Hattie clutched Ruth 's arm.

"Ol1,', sighed Ruth, "Vin so glad. I was afraid we'd never find
a hut in these Wilds."
They kept moving towards the light quite rapidly now, for it
seemed to give the1n strength to go on. They were so absorbed in
crawling through hriers and over stumps that they did not notice
that the light at tiines disappeared and was gradually moving
toward the left. Then suddenly Hattie could not see it.
"VVhy it's gone," she gasped, "no, there it is." Now it flashed
on and off continually. The girls stood still. lt was quite close and
seemed to be in the hands of someone who was moving cautiously
and stealthily along. Hattie took hold of Ruth 's hand which was as
cold and elainy as her own. They were breathing hard. It was

Back in the tent Helen and Eleanor put out the camp Hres and
entered the tent. Eleanor sat on her cot facing Helen.
"Shall T read this story to you," she asked?
"Why of course, you dear, I always enjoy a story."
So Eleanor started to read. lt was a. very thrilling tale of the
jungles and its mysterious ghosts. The girls shivered.
All at once Eleanor stopped reading and listened. She turned
rather pale as she looked through the tent tlap and her hand slowly
started towards her pillow. She slipped it underneath and it came
in contact with the cold metal of her revolver. She kept her eyes
on the ground outside. Yes, she was sure, it was that awful creepy
thing. Helen sat there frightened, watching first the tent opening,
then Eleanor. A crash-a quick movement of Eleanor's hand-a
flash-a sharp report-someone yelled. Eleanor ha.d tired.
Had she, oh ha.d she murdered? Wliy' hadn '13 she been more
careful? The cold sweat stood on her forehead.
"Hello," called a deep bass voice from the outside, "who's
there? Trying to kill me?"
AMI-TENNIAN, '22 Sixty-seven
At thc sound of the voice Eleauor's face relaxed. The voice
sounded so familiar. It could not be-for he was still miles away.
Again she heard him calling as 'he turned the corner of the tent.
Oh, now she was sure. She jumped up, ran out of the tent, and
threw her arms about the man 'S neck.
"Oh, you dear," she sobbed, "why didn't you say you were
you? Suppose I had killed you."
"Why, Sis,"' the look of bewilderment left thc man's face, "I
didn't expect you for another week. But why did you try to kill

"Why, Tom Kent," she exclaimed, "how you surprised us. I
don 't know what your sister thought you were when she tried to
kill you. Tom, tell us how you happened to be here," she begged.
They seated themselves on a log and he explained how he had
seen a light which must have been their camp tire, how he came to
investigate, for he was to guard against all forest tires. All at once
he had stumbled upon their tent and then heard the shot.
"Where is Ruth-and Hattie," he asked, standing up and look-
"Oh, I know you are anxious to see Ruth," laughed Eleanor,
"but she 's not here."
"Not here," asked Tom.
"No, she and Hattie went for tgas' and they haven tt come back
"Well, we had better look for themfl said Tom. "They
Sll0l'llCl11,lZ be out on such a dark night as this and in a strange woods.

The girls in the woods slowly opened their eyes as if fearful of
what they might see. Ruth needed only one peep, was she dream-
ing-no, there stood Tom smiling down at her.
"Well, Ruth, you certainly were very slow in recognizing me,"
said Tom a few moments later, but how did you happen to fall
asleep here? You are only about twenty yards away from your
Sixty-eiglzt AMPTENNIJNN. '22
"What, so near the tent and we had been walking, it seemed
miles and miles, following a light which vanished every few seconds
until we heard a shot and a yell. Then we sat here to wait until
morning before trying to iind eamp. l suppose we were dozing
away when you came up." '
"You poor clears," said Tom, "you must have been following
my light, which vanished every time I stepped behind a tree."
"Yes, and Eleanor fired the shot because she thought Tom was
some one trying to murder us," put in Helen.
"Well I'm so glad the 'gas' didn't reach," said Eleanor after
they had returned to camp and were settled for a chat, "or we
wouldn't have met you, Tom."
"Well, l'm glad I didn't stop breathing when you told us to,
Eleanor Kent, or we would have reached the top of the hill and been
many miles away," replied Ruth, and she nestled her hand into
Tom 's large palm.

THE MYSTERIOUS LIGHT
He awoke. There was a blinding light across his eyes. He
jumped up. It was still there. He dodged it. Again it was there.
He dashed into a. closet and closed the door with a bang. It was
gone. There evidently was nothing wrong with either his eyes or
his brain. But what was this strange thing that tormented him at
night? He threw the door open with the same suddenncss he had
closed it. Again, he was blinded with that dazzling light: again he
swiftly withdrew into the recesses of the closet. Then he crawled
noiselessly out to surprise his tormentor. The light was gone. He
waited a moment and yet no light. He ran to the window and
watched for a long time, but there was not a move, not a. sign ol'
life anywhere. All was still and dark.
The next day Mr. Britt formed a plan to outwit the person or
thing'that was responsible for the light that was causing him so
much uneasiness. He began at once to gather linen and old clothing,
with which he formed the figure of a. man. He hid the dummy in
the closet in the hall, and went downstairs.

A half hour later he was on his way to the city which was nine
miles distant. Here he purchased a wig that would give the figure
the appearance of a real man. He hurried to reach home in time
for lunch so that his absence would not create any suspicion among
He immediately went to the closet to get the figure. To his sur-
prise and amazement, it was gone. He questioned the servants, but
they all denied being in his room. 'The closet had a-peculiar lock to
which he and the laundress alone had keys. He locked the door be-
fore leaving and the laundress denied being near the closet that day.
He hit upon another plan. He went to the city again, and re-
turned late with Mr. Benton, his friend, whom he smuggled into the
house without being seen.
That night Mr. Benton occupied his bed, while Mr. Britt was on
guard at the French window that opened upon the porch. They
watched for several hours and almost gave up hope when that daz-
zling light began again to play about the bed. Mr. Britt stepped out
of the window noiselessly. He saw a dark object. He advanced
slowly and wih a bound jumped upon it. The light vanished. Mr.
Benton hurriedly turned on the electric lights. The dark and strug-
gling object proved to be a ragged, half-witted boy from the town.
A tourist had given him a powerful Hash-light and he amused him-
self by flashing it in the eyes of people while they slept.
The mystery of the light was solved, but what had become of
the dummy? They put many questions to the half-witted boy, but
could learn nothing from him, They reprimanded him and allowed
him to go free.
Several days later, while eating lunch, Mr. Britt received a
telephone call from the chief of police. Several boys had been
caught smoking in a sha.nty. They had a eollection of clothing which
they used in playing circus and giving shows. One of the boys con-
fessed that they had committed several small robberies to obtain
these. Among them was a suit belonging to Mr. Britt. He went
down to the city hall immediately as he was curious to know how
the boys got into the closet, because that was the suit he had put on
One of the boys confessed that his mother was the laundress and

The next ceremonial meeting was held in the oldest Church in
this community, to which the girls had hiked. Hattie Behringer and
Mary N ewhard were there welcomed into the Camp.
On one of their many hikes they invited the girls and teachers
of the High School and all enjoyed a pleasant evening around a
Camp Fire, preparing their supper.
In November they presented the play 4'Prineess Kiko," the
proceeds of which will be used for their camping trip this year.
The girls have been raising funds through the year by making

The Girl Scouts of the 1923 Class are the Troop 1 of North-
ampton. They were organized December 7, 1921, with Captain
Caroline L. Stem, and lst Lieutenant Marie J. Stettler as officers.
The object of this organization is to promote the interest of the
Scout in Nature, physical and mental training, home and business
life, and in better womanhood. We promise, as we are installed,
"On my honor I will try to do my duty to God and my country. To
help other people at all times. To obey the Scout Laws."
The ten laws are all statements of the trustworthiness, loyalty,
usefulness, thriftiness, and indeed all that should make a Scout
honorable. The Slogan, "Do a Good Turn Daily" and the motto,
"Be Prepared," are both well named. Not unlike Camp Fire Girls
do we work for honors. Badges are offered as the insignia of pass-
ing a test proving the efficiency the Scout shows in art, music, sew-
ing, nursing, swimming, house work, dancing and economy, besides
a great many others.
The Scouts have not been progressing as rapidly as they hoped,
for the reason that meetings cannot very easily be arranged, so that
all can attend. They intend to give plays in order to gain money to

THE SCHOOL BETTERMENT ASSOCIATION
The School Betterment Association was formed in 1919 for the
betterment and control of all school activities.. Each year it aims
to leave something to improve the school and to infiuence the stu-
dents in years to come.
This term has been very successful and the members have shown
good school spirit. They began activities by giving a reception to
the Freshmen and drawing' up a high school Honor Code. As the
crowning event of the term, they published Northampton High
School Hand Books. These books contained general information
concerning' courses of study, school activities, affairs, etc. The books
were distributed to all high school students, but after this year they
Will be given to Freshmen only. The money was obtained by holding
bazaars and festivals in the halls of the high school.
Clean-up Week was held through the efforts of the Association
and proved successful. Speeches were given every morning at as-
sembly, thereby gaining the enthusiasm of the entire school.
The Student Betterment Association improves every term, and
,the outgoing members sincerely hope that the next term will show
marked improvement over this.

PAUL REITER '22
"Boney", our diminutive flash, -was one of the stars of the team.
"Boney" had little experience previous to this year, but was a great
help in our Winning the pennant last year. He could always be
depended upon to bring the fall out of our opponents territory and
take it up the floor. Although of small stature, his skill and keen
eye more than overcame his lack of bulk. He is one of the most
skillful floor workers on the team and his keen eye has brought woe
to many opposing teams. He is a senior and will be greatly missed
for our next year's team.
EDGAR LANE '24
"Laney", the other forward, hails from Coplay. He is a new
man at the game, but his Wonderful strides forward have won him
a regular place on the varsity. His floor work, his passing and
shooting of baskets, have been one of the features which has con-
tributed to the success of the team. The team has developed a sys-
tem of plays which is hard to excel, and "Laney" is one of the
mainstays of the team's success. He is only a sophomore and will
be left for next year's varsity.
Eighty-eight AMPTENNIAN, '22
WALTER TROXELL '22
"Trockey" was one of the causes for our successful seasons. He
was one of the most important factors last year when we won the
pennant. He covers the pivot position with such ease that thus far
he has not been out-classed by any of his opponents. He is one of
the leading scorers on the team, a heady floor-worker, and his sen-
sational work has contributed largely to the success of the team. He
started his basketball career three years ago. "Trockey" usually
gets the "tip-off", and tosses the winning basket. On the defensive,
he was just as brilliantg for, time after time, he broke up our op-
ponents passes and took the ball down the floor and caged the bas-
ket. He is now a senior and will certainly be missed.
CALVIN MILLER '22
"Culp", our stellar guard, showed a good example of guarding
for the last two years. As a guard, he is in a class by himself, one
of the best guards that ever played on any N. H. S. five. He was
dreaded by all forwards of our opponents as it was no easy task to
cage a. double-decker while 'being guarded by "Culp". Besides star-
ring at guard, he could allways be depended upon to cage a few
double-deckers when most needed. He is a senior and after play-
ing on the varsity for t-wo years, he will leave a big gap in the team
that will require much effort on the part of the next season's coeah
RUSSELL REICHARD '22
"Bud", paired with Miller as guard, helped to balance our team
during the year. He did not believe in individual glory, but believed
in team play. It is his phenomenal work at guard that has saved
more games than anything else. There hardly is a scrimmage in
which he doesn 't have the upper hand. His strength, cool head, and
determination have broken up many an opposing team's play, and
to him must be given a great deal of credit for the team 's work. He
is also a senior and we will give our hearty thanks for his basket-
ball work in N. H. S.
AMPTENNIAN, '22 Eighty-m7'fw
A number of our lower classmates have helped a great deal in
making our basketball season a success: Smith and Miller, from the
Sophomore class, Thomas from the Junior class, and Schaadt from
the Senior class. Smith and Miller are forwards who have but a
short experience at playing the game, having started when the call
of candidates was given in fall. Their work and progress is al-
most as phenomenal as the varsity men themselves. Their iioor work
is especially brilliant.
Thomas, our sub-guard, is a scorer of no mean ability, as is
shown by the records, -but his great defensive work shines out above
all else. If he will increase in skill a11d eiificiency at the rate he has
in the past, he is destined to Win naught but fame, and his 1ne1'its
duly deserve it.
Schaadt, has clearly demonstrated his efficiency in a case of ne-
cessity by his remarkable all around work. He can till any position
and is a good, all around man.
The main feature of the team's success is not only the consis-
tent winning of games, but the conduct of all the men, who have
shown at all times that they are gentlemen, and who have won many
compliments which they deserve, for their clean and honest playing.
GIRLS ' BASKET BALL
This year the girls' basketball has nearly died out, but we have
brighter prospects for next year. Wheii our coach, Miss Berg, call-
ed for candidates, she found plent-y of material, but the real kind
was lacking. We had three players left from last year 's team, name-
ly, Evelyn Hunt, Helen 0'Loughlin, and Edith Wolfe. There is but
one player on the varsity graduating this year, Mary Newhard.
In '20 the girls were considered a championship team, in '21
they lost more than they won, while this year they played but two
games. These were played with the champion girls' team of the
valley, Bethlehem. The last score :was 19-12. Our line-up for next
year will far excel this year. N. H. S. -will enter the league next year.
The line up for this year 's team was:
Mary Newhard, '22, Forward.
Nmefy AMPTENNIAN, '22
Marguerite Berg, '24, Forward.
Edith Wolfe, '23, Centre
Helen O7L0l1gl1llll, '24, S. Centre.
Marian Hall, '23, Guard.
Ethel Mohrey, '24, Guard.
Marguerite lVIeiglian, '24.
Marian Kline, '24.
Roda Beil, '24.
Ruth Newhard, '25.
You readily can see that if the team will Work together next
year, and will advance as rapidly as they did the last game, they
will surely have a successful season.
This year 's Varsity wish next year's team greater success.

MANUAL 'TRAINING DEPARTMENT
The Northampton High School is credited with a wide-awake
department of Manual Training. By efficient supervision, the
achievements shown in the picture have been attained during thc
term 1921-'22. Although not many of the 1922 class have taken ad-
vantage of this opportunity, those who have, calculate it fortunate
to have received such a valuable training.
The Manual Training room is a very disagreeable place for
idlers. No one can nor dare be idle amid the sounds of buzzing
saws and chattering lathes, and the tap-tap of the hammers beating
time to the song of industry and toil.
Wlieii viewing the products, it seems as ,though fairy elfs played
an active part in producing the furniture that is placed on exhibition
yearly. But it happens to be nothing more than the earnest toil and
handicraft of the seventh and eighth grades in the public schools
and first and second years in high school. The lathe turnings are
furnished by the third and fourth year's students at High School.
The instigator and promoter of this progressive repartment, to
whom we owe all honor and respect, is Mr. Clinton A. Bilhiemer.
The senior class hereby wishes to show its appreciation, as well
as that of all others benefited by the Manual Training Department
ot the Northampton High School.

DOMESTIC SCIENCE DEPARTMENT
This department, one of the most interesting in the course of
the girls' sophomore year, has proved very successful.
Miss Seidel, the head of the Domstie Science Department, many
months ago, brought up the matter of running a cafeteria and the
girls eagerly took it up. First, they planned menus. Naturally the
meals were Well-balanced. The cost was worked out, and, after all
was fully decided upon, large attractive posters bearing the menus
were placed in the halls, while tiny tickets were made and sold by
N mety-fo ur AMPTENNIAN, '22
Crowds of students stopped each day to read and comment upon
the menu and quite a few who are obliged to carry lunch Cincluding
the teachersb bought tickets.
It meant work, at first, but, of course, the girls were anxious
to please their customers so they hurried about splendidly. When
all was quite ready, the students and teachers entered the Domestic
A tray and a knife, fork and spoon were given to them. Thus
prepared, they selected the food they desired and went out into the
hall where a long table and many chairs were placed for them.
The girls felt quite encouraged when the dishes were brought
back, for they appeared quite clean, and few complaints were heard.
However, all was not as perfect as it might have been, but
these matters were surprisingly few and, no doubt, it was due to
the fact that all the lunches were managed so successfully through
the supervision and aid of the Domestic Science instructor, Miss
As the weeks went by the food improved and a little money
was made with which new equipment was bought. Many helped the
good cause along, such as the making of their own delicious ice-
cream, cakes and rolls.
Never was a sign of any food wasted that could in any way be
used, for these amateur cooks remained at noon and received their
luncheon free. The work seemed to give them all a hearty appetite.
I think one of the main things the girls learned to do was to wash
dishes, for there were stacks of them.
At last, after eleven weeks of hard work, the cafeteria was given
up and another line of interest taken. This was hat makin-g. Small
wonder the people commented at so many new hats appearing on the
streets of Northampton.
This about ended a big season for the girls and they all seemed
to think their efforts had been well worth while.
