THE AIM OF ADAMS HIGH SCHOOL
BY MR. H. C. IoHNs'roN
Our high school says "good-bye" to the seniors with the
hope that some of its purposes will be reflected in their lives.
We hope that our school has not only prepared them for some
future work, but that it has also taught them the values of such
things as good-sportsmanship, lair play, tolerance, and friend-
ly relationships with others. We should always remember
that the basic aim of true education is to help people to
lead lives that are personally happy and socially useful.

SE IIJH C 55 HISTUHY
In 1941, one hundred forty-one freshmen
entered Adams High. The declaration of war
in December made many activities impos-
sible but they didn't miss the Halloween
party given for them by the juniors.
As sophs they were not given the tradi-
tional Valentine party by the seniors.
Upperclassmen now. Only 90 students
reached this position. It was their turn to
treat the Frosh to a Witch party and en-
tertain the seniors at the prom. They pre-
sented the play Adam's Evening.
By the middle of their senior year twen-
ty-three of the enrolled seventy-eight had
left to join various branches of the service
and to enter college. They celebrated Valen-
tine Day in Ianuary because of those who
were to leave soon. Mr. Miller C. Hood ad-
vised these seniors. In February they pre-
sented the play Brother Goose under the di-
rection of Mrs. Hilda B. Smith.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
For their first activity as upperclassmen the juniors sponsored a Hallo-
ween party for the freshmen. Under the supervision of Miss Laura Mae
Dimond they presented the play Girl Shy.
During the year a few of the boys left school to go into the Armed
Forces. Their last act as juniors was to entertain the seniors at the prom.

Of the 123 freshmen that began the
high school trek last year, 27 dropped out
along the way but two came in as sopho-
mores. Again this year Mr. Sam Plummer
advised this group.
To help them choose and prepare
for their careers, the sophs took prefer-
ence tests. The seniors treated them on
Ianuary 19 to a Valentine party with the
added spice of farewells, to the boys
leaving for the services.
Outnumbering every other class this
year is the freshmen class which has one
hundred and one members, many of
whom will well remember those first few
day in high school. The time when a she
freshman, very much disgusted with the
many halls and doors, asked an upper
classman the route to the band room and
following directions found herself in the
boy's shower room or the time when
a he freshman was directed to the home
ec room instead of the shop. Remember
the snake dance in which all freshies,
feeling foolish, took part. In October these
freshmen attended the Halloween party
given for them by their fellow classmen,
the juniors. Freshman class adviser is Mrs.
Ruth Robine, girls' gym teacher,

Views of Adamsites

Winter weather out-stadium boots . . .
bunny gloves . . . sheep-lined aviator coats
. . . Navy Peacoats . . . head scarves imoth-

Again mother's kitchen was robbed. This
time for teaspoons so that fashionable teen-
agers could have bracelets. BRACELETS-
the more on at one time the better! The
lassies' lovely hair were adorned with bar-
retts of all kinds-personality and floral.
Ioes and lanes got together on the long
shirt idea. Some of the couples around the
school had sport shirts alike. Really groovy!
Slick-chicks turned to the bare-legs policy
--no anklets . . . paint . . . play shoes.
But bobby socks still had their niche in the
world of fashions.
Dresses for spring and summer had the
motto "the brieter the better." They featured
cap sleeves . . . sweetheart necklines . . .
drawstring tops . . . abbreviated skirts . . .
square necklines. Smooth sweaters, peasant
blouses and drindl skirts were by no means
neglected .... Boys wore loaiers as well as
girls. Shoes Wore a more polished look than

First game in the season and another
feather in the Hornets' cap. The Falcons
couldn't even break through for one touch-
After nine years of defeat the Adams'
team came back from Portage with a vic-
tory of 41-U.
First defeat of the season came at the
hands of Altoona Catholic. The opposing
teamsters scored two points for a safety
in Adams end zone, then with but a minute
and a half to go scored a touchdown.
Through the loads of mud at the point
the stingers plunged for a 13-6 victory over
Conemaugh's Iron Horses. Utz broke away
for a long run to a touchdown. Then Don
Miller kicked for an extra point and later
ran 52 yards for another six points.
Windber's eleven scored over the Adams
Teamsters for the second lose of the season.
The Hornets made the first score but a touch-
down and an intercepted pass for the oppo-
nents spelled defeat.
The Blue Hornets pinned an 18-7 defeat
on the Crimson Crushers for the second Win
at the Point. An extra point put the oppo-
nents ahead but Utz ran around end 30
yards for a goal. Then late in the fourth
frame Miller plunged for another six points.
Undefeated Portage Townshipers stayed
on top when they turned the Hornets back
for a second defeat in a row.
Even with a completely different starting
line-up Adams overran the Franklin Blue-
Iays. Touchdowns were made as a re-
sult of the Iay's penalties.
First downs and lengthy marches brought
a victorious end to the Armistice Day game
against Lilly. Lewis and Bill Varner sat in
the sidelines with injuries.
