PUBLISHED BY THE SENIORS OF
ST. JEROME'S HIGH SCHOOL
"Let us then be up and doing
With a heart for any fate."
It is with these words of Longfellow's animating our spirits, we, the Seniors of Saint Jerome's publish this Sixth Volume of Leone.
We are on the threshold of our entrance into a new world, and being equipped with the armour of well trained Christian soldiers are prepared to fight and to win our battles.
We wish this book to be our treasure chest of memories of joy and happiness, of inspiration, of ideas that has given us the desire and ambition to make of ourselves men and women of character.
When our school days are over, and when we open the cover of this book and retire into the joyful memories of our Alma Mater, may we find ourselves true to the ideals and inspirations as set forth here, and furthermore, may we be
"Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait."
- Thomas Stapleton
Alma Mater we depart now
From your portals to us so dear,
But to thy voice may we answer
Though we wander far or near.
Into a world of trial and strife,
But we know that you, will help us
If we strive with all our might.
Farewell to all our school day joys,
And may God extend His blessings
To all our girls and boys.
We, the class of 1934, do
humbly dedicate this sixth volume of Leone, to our Parents. It was their great
sacrifices and unceasing efforts that made possible for us a Catholic Education.
They built this school and have made unending sacrifices to keep it up to the standard. They have been enabled by the grace of God to face the trying times of the present and the past and have emerged triumphantly from the combats.
Therefore, as our last tribute, we dedicate to them this book. We cannot find words sufficient to express our appreciation for all they have done, but we can ask God to shower His blessings down upon them.
- Esther V. DeLay
The Centenary Of Saint Jerome's
Since this year marks the one hundredth anniversary of Saint Jerome's Parish, it is fitting that we give a brief resume of the growth of Catholicity in this district.
The name Tamaqua, as we learn from the old Indian legends, means "Beaver Stream." The beaver is characterized as working incessantly and perseveringly with an incentive all its own. The spirit of Saint Jerome's has ever been like the beaver; and due to perseverance and sacrifice it stands today as a "Century Plant" to the noble citizenry of the town.
According to the diary of Bishop Kendrick, the church of Saint Jerome's was dedicated on July sixth, 1834. This date will mark the hundredth anniversary of our church. To Father Wainwright must be given the credit of building the first Catholic Church in Tamaqua. It was a plain structure erected on the hill where the old cemetery now stands.
In the year 1856, Father James F. Morris began the erection of a new church. This building was situated where the present church now stands. However, this structure was not completed until 1861, during the pastorate of Father Maurice A. Walsh.
From 1834, until the present, due to the continual increase of Catholics in the district, Saint Jerome's emerged from its capacity of "Mother Church" to the surrounding districts to an independent plant. Many of the districts which had been under the care of Saint Jerome's found it necessary to organize and build parishes of their own.
When the casual observer of Catholic Progress looks back upon the past development of Saint Jerome's, he cannot help but note the great strides which have been made from the period of its inception to the present date.
During this time many priests have taken charge of the parish. Endeared to all have been each of these pastors at Saint Jerome's. From the little children to the oldest parishioner a spirit of good will and true love has ever been held toward the priests of the parish.
It was through the
efforts of Father Baker that the Church was renovated and the school built. The
school affords a graded course of elementary studies, as well as, a first class
accredited high school.
Upon the death of Father Baker, Saint Jerome's received as his successor, Father Daniel J. Daly, who as a true and good shepherd has continued the work of his predecessors. Despite every disadvantage of the past and present - the industrial crisis, regional labor troubles, and period of national depression - he has labored incessantly to keep our parish second to none in the degree of comparative results.
May this parish ever be "Beaver like", that is, busy about Our Father's business, devoted to the advancement of education, imitating the fervor and zeal of its patron, Saint Jerome.
Furthermore, may we, the members of the class of 1934, be no little factor for an influence of good in this community. Let us continue the work of our ancestors, so that in the years to come Saint Jerome's and the town of Tamaqua may be proud of the "Centennial Class of St. Jerome's High School."

Reverend Daniel J . Daly, Pastor
Father Daly, our Pastor, is one who is blessed with all the virtues that can be combined into charity, sincerity and patience. He is "a man after God's own heart", who makes no compromises when a question of our spiritual welfare is at stake. He is ever on the alert to notice and correct our imperfections, and thereby instill into us principles that will forge for us a sterling character. He uses his moral gifts in an untiring struggle, both for the spiritual and worldly success of his people the - parishioners of St. Jerome's.
We, the class of 1934, express our sincere appreciation for his ever ready counsels, and kindly interest in all our undertakings.
We pray to God that on life's way we may be guided by the principles that you have inculcated.
May God Bless You!
Reverend Timothy J. Lavin
This volume would be,
indeed, incomplete were it sent forth on its mission of joy and gladness without
our seal of gratitude to our devoted curate, Father Lavin.
We express our deep appreciation for your sincere and practical interest in our welfare. Your friendly attitude, your keen interest in our activities and your good advice have endeared you to the Class of 1934. The Graduates of this class will ever cherish fond memories of you.
Reverend, and dear
Fathers, kind Parents, beloved Teachers and dear Friends:
About to cross the threshold of life, we could not do better than to pause for a moment and offer a farewell prayer to those loving hearts, who, during the joyous years that have flown away so quickly, have ever proved our truest and worthy guides.
Reverend and dear Father Daly - With earnest hearts and voices, we express to you our gratitude, for your presence in our midst today, for the ever watchful care with which you, O Shepherd of Souls, have guarded our young lives. We pray that we, thy chosen ones for whom you have labored, may be your joy and consolation, here on earth; and in heaven your everlasting crown of glory.
Dear Father Lavin - In the short time you have been with us you have won a place in our hearts, which time can never destroy. You have worked hard and loyally in our interests. Our gratitude is expressed by welcoming you to our closing exercises.
Kind Parents - Today we realize that it was your sacrifices and unselfish interests which enabled us to acquire a Catholic High School Education. We can not begin to thank you for all you have done for us, but we most sincerely welcome you to witness your reward, through our closing exercises.
Beloved Teachers - We, who are about to enter the thickest of life's battles, salute you. Never fret kind Sisters we will not forget you in our coming years. You shall be our "voices" to urge us on to do great and noble deeds in the conflict of life.
Dear Classmates - On this our Graduation Day, we do not picture life as we did on our entrance into high school: it is only now that we begin to realize, what confronts us. While in the midst of the whirlpool of life, we must remember the motto of the Class of '34, "He conquers who conquers himself."
Our class feels highly elated, too, at the rare privilege it has of being graduated in the same year that witnesses the centenary celebration of dear old St. Jerome's. We cannot hope to have so long a life, but we trust whatever its span, that we may be found loyal children of the century-old parish - doing our duty as faithful Christians to God and man.
Once more dear friends we, bid you welcome to the Graduation exercises of our Alma Mater.

I wish I had some magic power
To do fair justice in this hour.
It matters not how much I try,
There's bound to be something slip by.
And really with a class like this
No single thing you ought to miss.
But I will do the best I can
The past four years I'll closely scan
So Parents, Friends, and Schoolmates hear
Our glorious history year by year.
The day I very well remember,
'Twas then set sail our little bark
With fifty-eight in it to start.
We started out with lots of noise
As thirty-one of us were boys,
The girls were then as now you see
As shy as ever they could be.
Things underwent so great a change.
To tell the truth I think for days
We walked around all in a daze.
We always had to bear in mind
A host of things of every kind
For instance here's one I'll name,
"Do the Latin, or after school you remain."
The Sophomore year of our class.
The boys went out with vim for sports
And as athletes proved the better sort.
Football, Basketball, Track and all
Enthusiastically they answered the call.
The girls in this year I'll confess
Were more than examples of happiness.
Was surely choosing our Class Ring.
Now this deed was one event
That caused a lot of argument
We reached an agreement finally
And chose the best that could be.
We have something to remember our school by
When on our rings we cast an eye.
In the Junior year Class officers we elected
For President Thomas Stapleton was selected.
The second place Vice-President
Right straight to Francis Burns it went,
And then to even things up a bit
We chose two more as we saw fit.
The Secretary was then proclaimed
And Mary Baddick was the one named;
For Treasurer we all agreed
That Stephen Detrick do the deed.
When that first Senior day arrived
And twenty-seven strong returned.
Once more in St. Jerome's to learn.
All from Brockton went to Blythe
Others matriculated to various highs
Each with success we hope will meet
And by their talents overcome all who compete.
Resolved our efforts to combine
That we might make a book so rare
That nothing with it can compare.
We think of course we did succeed
And you can prove it if you'll read.
I hope you all agree with me
That the class did the best that could be.
It makes us sad to think it so.
Tomorrow morn this famous class
Will kneel again at Holy Mass.
We'll beg God's blessing with us stay
And Mary's smile to light our way.
And then when falls the evening shades
Our school life into memory fades.
Their training of us we will show
We will strive to keep in mind
How they were Holy, Gentle and Kind.
Heaps of thanks to them we do bestow
And with heads bending low
Offer to whisper "Au Revoir."
Mary K. Baddick, '34
|A happy task is mine today
And many things are mine to say
I'm here, you know, to prophesy,
A wondrous tale, indeed have I
So list intent while I unfold
The secrets that our futures hold.
I'll tell you of Thomas Stapleton.
In all his studies he did fairly well
His future's easy to foretell
It wont' be long, just wait and see
It's a first class lawyer he will be.
Both far and near will spread their fame
All other stars will cease to shout
They'll turn their records inside out
Oh, yes, it's Joe and Steve I mean
They're not as shy as they might seem.
To New York's University,
And there behold a startling scene
Our Joseph Somers in sternest mien,
Professor, yes, indeed, he'll be,
teacher in Trigonometry.
Whose future I'll unfold next
Daniel McDonald, world renowned will be
For research work in Chemistry.
Of course, you're not surprised at this
For that's one class he'd never miss.
The tale I'll tell of these next two.
Please note it well - two surest wagers -
For Moran and Haggerty will be managers
Of a Sporting Goods Business of their own Situated in their own home town.
And it will be our Francis Burns.
He'll cure your small and greatest ills
With his own special kind of pills.
Of course his assistant will surely be,
Tommy Dillon, just wait and see.
This class will have one millionaire.
Now who do you suppose 'twill be?
None other than our friend-Sweeney
The secret of it all now hear
His book, "How Troubles Disappear."
To some far distant western shore
I'll take you now to see Joe Fisher
He'll join a famous company
And sing in musical comedy
If you've not heard him yet, please do
For there's a treat in store for you.
Will very soon be leaving us.
In the Convent their vocation lies,
But we'll meet them by and by
They'll be dressed in Blue and White
Teaching children to read and write.
Fair Anna who is from Reynolds;
This will not be her stronghold
For just as soon as it is meet,
She'll shake the dust off her feet.
And you will see her name some day
Emblazoned on the Great White Way.
She's the first female to know how;
With Anna DeLay as her chief aid,
They both are being highly paid.
Their glory they have not bought
Their fame is very well sought.
This town's celebrity will be.
While others city light prefer,
Tamaqua is good enough for her
She'll write all day, let it be said,
The glory of her town to spread.
The tale I'll tell of these next two
Please note it well-surest bets
Margaret and Miriam are suffragettes
And here I repeat the old surprise,
The shyest do often prove otherwise.
On Education they did always dote
Now they're employed in a university
Rose successfully teaching stenography;
Esther at last a pathologist;
And on the faculty her name heads the list
All thought her a fine little lass
Nursing was always her keenest delight
Mary's profession suits her all right,
It's her ambition to relieve pain
And never worry of her own gain.
The Courier now, 'tis plainly seen
Is quite a paper of renown.
But it's surely safe to say
'Twill be much better some day
For quite a journalist is Marie,
Whose name on the Editor's line we'll see.
Will have a firm - McGlinchey and Hanlon.
And if you'd learn how to dance,
Be sure to give these two a chance.
No others better can impart,
Instructions in this graceful art.
She is sincere and not sullen.
We know her choice as sister will be
Divine through life and never melancholy.
We wish her success in all she may do
For girls like her are all too few.
I've told of each and every one.
As for myself - no matter makes,
I'll trust my fortune to the fates
And for you all, I wish today
A future ever bright and gay.

In September we assembled for the third lap of our high school course. Our number had been greatly depleted, many having discontinued, and we now number seventeen. We were soon grinding out the daily task of Chemistry, History, Spanish, etc. The school days passed very quickly and before we knew it the Christmas holidays had arrived. After a week's vacation we were again back at our lessons, and studying hard for the weekly tests. Assembly was held every Friday afternoon in the auditorium of the school. The programs arranged by the various classes were educational, interesting and entertaining. Much of our time this year was spent in practicing basketball. This was well spent time, as you will see from the report of our basketball scores. It might be mentioned here that the Junior Class can well be proud of the work of its representatives, Wm. Hackett and Wm. Lynch, on this team. Now, although Spring, our thoughts must turn to examinations, and we must give them due consideration and preparation, so as we may pass them creditably and return next September as dignified Seniors.

At last we have attained the envied position of Sophomores of St. Jerome's High School. It was early in September, of 1932, that fifty seven scholars became full-fledged members of the Freshmen Class. During that first year we won our early successes, which are characteristic of the class of '36. After being accepted by our upper classmates for our real worth, we settled down to regular routine. At a class meeting we elected our officers as recorded above. Despite the innumerable difficulties left untouched, we became Sophomores. To our dismay we found, this year, our class registration decreased to twenty five. This year our studies brought us into the midst of Mathematics, History and Caesar. Now as our Sophomore year is drawing to a close, the uppermost thought in our minds is that the future will be as successful and progressive for our welfare as has been the past.

September 7, 1933, saw the arrival of a quite distinctive class at Saint Jerome's. Thirty-eight strong, they entered to be introduced to new work, a new routine and new teachers. All was strange and consequently full of interest. Teachers, texts and rosters became the topic for animated discussion. After being safely anchored as Freshmen, class organization was begun. Vigorous campaigning was followed by an exciting election, the results of which are recorded above. October thirty-first found white-faced and nervous Freshmen assembled. The famed "initiation" was about to take place. Fearful, yet courageous, we tried to enter into the spirit of the occasion. Three times we entered the field of drama. Our first endeavor was "The Touchdown", featuring Jean Goeser, Mary Wolfe, John Moran, James Winklespecht, Russel Coleman in the various roles. The second time we prepared a program in honor of Abraham Lincoln. This was enlivened by the humorous Trilogue, "At the Ferry", starring Edmund Semanski, Margaret Mullen and Wiliam Clausius. The third, a "Mock Trial", was staged as a project in Civics. Looking back we view a year brimming with activities and fun. Work, too, was accomplished, and we say, "We are Content."

Another successful basketball season passed into history. The Lions had taken the floor nineteen times and emerged victorious fourteen times.
When Coaches Jimmy Knowles and Frank Boyle, Lion stars of yesteryear, took over the coaching seat, left vacant by the loss of Frank McCoy, they found Captain Joe Murphy, Gene Dillon and Bill Hackett, regulars of the 1932-33 team, all set for another season on the wooden way. Steve Dietrick, Bill Lynch, Joe Fisher and Dino Banditelli were also good prospects and fitted into the machine perfectly. The others making up the varsity were Alex Moran, Hubert and Don Brown, Jimmy Fisher and Joe Portz.
A word of appreciation must be given to Father Lavin, who so faithfully contributed his services that the Lions were able to carry on their supremacy as they have done in the past.
The players wish to take this occasion to thank Father Lavin for his kindness in taking them to Philadelphia to witness the Penn-Cornell basketball game.
And last, but not least, a word of thanks must also be given to the managers, Alex Moran and Donald Haggerty, who have performed their duties faithfully.
