Democracy through experience! Soon after we en-
tered our history classes we learned that we were study-

the peoples of the earth, but also the duties and priv-

consisted of both classroom theory and actual observa-
tion ot our government at work.

Latin and French have been tor us not
a series at translation recitations but a
fascinating exploration into language,
literature, and lite. We have increased
our English vocabularies noticeably by
applying our knowledge ot Latin and
have gained an understanding of ancient
civilization through our study at Roman
authors. Our French classes have had
added zest because they have been con-
clucted almost entirely in French.

to us who were accepted into the indus-
trial department. With training in act-

Our l94O football team won no titles, but
the boys played hard and square and produced
their quota of gridiron thrills. We opened
the season in great style, winning with com-
parative ease over Sewickley and Freedom in
non-league contests. ln these games the team
showed promising power, speed, and effective-
ness in tackling and blocking, it seemed to be
heading for a record like that of the i936
team which was undefeated. Butler proved a
stumbling block, and then the strong Midland
team, which later won the section crown, took
us into camp.
This was the situation as we came up to the
crucial game with Ambridge, undefeated and
untied at the time and pointing for the AA
championship. This is the Harvard-Yale or
Army-Navy game in Beaver Valley. The win-
ner counts its season a success regardless of
the outcome of its other games. The game
was played on a snow-covered gridiron, and
our boys fought their hearts out and held the
Bridgers scoreless, True, we failed to score,
but the scoreless tie was a fine moral victory
for our gridiron warriors.
Our boys then proceeded to upset a highly
touted Ellwood City eleven by a 7-O score and
trounced a fighting Beaver Falls team l4-O
the following week. The season ended with
a 20-O victory over the New Brighton boys,
who were unable to cope with an Aliauippa
eleven which had developed into a smart, pow-
erful, and aggressive outfit.
After the season Bar and Carmandi were
selected on the mythical all-county team, and
five of our seniors, Bar, Fuderich, Ferry, Faber,
and Carmandi, were honored by selection as
members of the West team to play in the
benefit game arranged between all-star teams
from the east and west sides of the Ohio River
Mr. Lippe handled the West team, which won
the game, and Mr. Rubenstein of Ambridge
coached the East team.
The Garda-coached reserves, who won all
their games last season as they have for the
past two years, will be ready for varsity com-
petition next year, they are expected to fur-
nish some steady players for the l94l team.
The resignation of Coach Lippe, who had
served as Aliquippa's football coach for the
past fourteen years, was made public after the

Aliquippa's basketball team this year turned
out to be the best in the history of the school.
Though starting out the season rather in-
auspiciously with close wins and two losses in
pre-season games, our quintet gained momen-
tum as the season progressed, defeated decis-
ively all league competition, and won the
championship of,Section lll of the W.P.l.A.L.
with a record of ten victories and no defeats.
ln the W.P.l.A.L. playoffs, Aliquippa beat
Coraopolis and Monessen in the quarter finals
and semi-finals, advancing to the champion-
ship contest only to lose a heart-breaking
game to the polished Duquesne team, which
had one of the best aggregations ever put to-
gether in high school circles hereabouts.
Coach Lippe started the season with a num-
ber of lettermen from l939-l94O season and
obtained maximum results with his material.
George Gilbert, 6'4" center, did not return to
school, graduation and the eligibility rules
riddled the team in January, Casoli and Buc-
cilli ended their school careers, the semester
rule made Volitich ineligible. These losses
left Coach Lippe with a squad of only six play-
ers: Bar, Ferry, Blicha, Fuderich, Belas, and
Schell. The first string reserve team, consist-
ing of Hodovanich, Zernich, Odlivak, Rusinko,
and Ferezan, was immediately moved up to the
varsity squad. Adapting his style of play to
the abilities of the players, he polished the
team into a fast moving, smooth working out-
fit such as has seldom been seen in Beaver
Valley. Featuring a modified zone and man
for man defense which kept the opposing
team out of the foul circle, a speedy figure
eight offense with quick breaks for the basket,
and swift, short passes, Aliquippa mowed down
its league competition. Sacrificing individual
glory to team play, the boys moved steadily
along and many times overcame large oppos-
ing leads to win. We averaged more than
forty points per game throughout the entire
season, and Fred Ferry, star forward, ended
the season as the leading scorer of Section lll.
During the pre-league schedule, which in-
cluded Freedom, Allegheny, Monaco, Wash-
ington, Erie Academy, and Duquesne, Aliquip-
pa lost to Washington and Duquesne, but
gained revenge for the defeat later in the sea-
son when the Red and Black came from be-
hind and turned the tables on Duquesne. ln
the regular league contests we won all our
games- beating each of the other teams in the
valley twice, a record which meant the Beaver
County Championship and the second winning
of the Geneva Cup, Permanent possession of
the Geneva trophy comes with the third win-
ning. Ambridge, the only other winner, has
had the cup once. This record gave us the
undisputed championship of Section III which
is admittedly one of the toughest sections in

Cross Country Base
Cross-Country, one of the most exacting of
all high school sports, has reached a height of
popularity in Aliquippa. Despite the rigorous
physical demands of the competition, almost
fifty applicants for the eight varsity positions
reported to Coach Jones last fall.
After they had completed several weeks of
intensive training over the tough high school
campus course, which measures about three
miles in length, Coach Jones held a series of
time trials to determine the varsity runners.
The harriers who took part in the dual and
championship meets for Aliquippa were C-ary
Duncan, Joe Debiec, Anthony Molinaro, Rocco
Ciccone, Bill Vafeasi Mike Ramona, Maurice
Marchal, Wilbur Powell, and John Lupcho.
Our runners booked the stiffest competition
available for their dual meets and built up the
endurance and competitive spirit which later
enabled them to make their fine showing in
the W.P.l.A.L. meet over the hilly Schenley
Park course in Pittsburgh, in which Aliquippa
placed third, losing only to the Canonsburg
and Mt. Lebanon teams.
Being thus qualified by this record, they
competed in the Western Pennsylvania Re-
gional Meet including about thirty schools
and placed fifth in the group.
For Aliquippa, baseball is one of the major
varsity sports. Eighty eager candidates turned
out when Coach Garda started practice last
spring. Since practically all of the V939 Bea-
ver County championship squad had been
graduated, Mr. Garda had to start with an in-
experienced team, but it was ambitious and
turned in a creditable season's performance
with six victories and three defeats in league
competition and two victories in the two non-
league games played again Beaver Falls.
Carrying a squad of about twenty players,
Coach Ciarda entered Section l2 of the W.P.l.
A.L., scheduling games with Monaca, Beaver,
Rochester, Freedom, and Midland. The Mid-
land team eventually won the championship of
the Beaver County League.
Bar, Pinkosky, Stamos, and Valcho handled
the pitching assignments and turned in some
very commendable performances. Stamos
did not lose a game. Bar, who had disclosed
streaks of wildness in the early games, gained
control with experience, and during the latter
part of the season held down every opponent
he faced. The record of these pitchers
matches that of the rest of the squad. All
have real ability which is being developed by
With no practice track, no field, no jump-
ing pits, with very little track and field equip-
ment, and with negligible experience, our
track team has worked wonders in competition
with other high school teams. Lacking an oval
track, Coach Roger James has his distance
runners practicing on the cross country course
and his sprinters running in the halls of the
school. The distance baton handlers won
second place in both the Three Mile Relay
ofthe W.P.l.A.L. Indoor Championships in Pitt
Track House and in the Tri-State Track
Coaches' Association Meet at Pitt Stadium,
the sprint teams took second honors in the
Mile Relay in the hotly contested W.P.l.A.L.
Nick Susnjer, Aliquippa's representative in
the shot put, was an outstanding performer
during the whole season. l-le took first place
with the twelve pound shot in the Washington
Relays and in the A.M.A. Meet, and also won
the sixteen pound event in the Allegheny
County Meet. In these last two meets, Susnjer
competed with both high school athletes and
with former high school and college stars who
were entered for amateur clubs. Then, to
climax the season, Susnjer made himself
champion of the whole W.P.l.A.L. with a
beautiful heave in the twelve pound event of
the championship meet at Pitt Stadium.

The Reserve Basketball Team, composed of
players from last year's junior high and reserve
squads, concluded its schedule with a record
ot thirteen wins and three defeats. Besides
furnishing the preliminaries to the regular
contests- the reseives were injected into sev-
eral ot the varsity games, thus gaining valu-
able experience for next year, when a number
of them will be promoted to the varsity squad.
The competiaicn among the reserve teams
of the valley schools is strong, and all the pre-
liminary contests were well played, in fact,
some of them were closer and more thrilling
than the regular interscholastic games which
followed. The coaches of this district take
pains with their reserves and spend quite a
good deal of time polishing their style of play.
The excellent calibre of our reserves is
shown by the fact that when mid-year gradua-
tion depleted the ranks of the varsity, the
whole tirst string reserve team was moved up
to the varsity squad and will likely become
next year's regulars.
Mr. Garda, who had acted as coach for the
reserves until mid-season, asked to be relieved
of his basketball duties in order to devote his
time to officiating in W.P.l.A.L. games, Mr.
Lippe took over his work and finished the sea-
son as mentor for both the varsity players and

Deuce! . . . The tennis courts behind the gym
during most of last summer resounded to cries
of keen competition, for one of the closest and
most hotly contested tournaments in the
school's history was in progress. With prac-
tically every tennis player in the school en-
tered, every round brought surprises, numer-
ous dark horses, among them the eventual
winner, showed up during the course of the
This last tournament, arranged and super-
vised by Mr. Milanovich, produced more than
its share of thrills and upsets, for only one of
the four favored entrants advanced to the
final round. Playing of the first and second
round contests was delayed for quite some
time because of bad weather and the inade-
quate draining facilities of the clay courts.
However, as soon as the rainy season ended
and the courts dried up, the games proceeded
according to schedule.
Dark horse Andy Citara, using a slashing
and cutting game, advanced through his
scheduled contests to the finals where his op-
ponent was Jack Trembath. Trembath was
unable to get set for the fierce driving game
which had handcuffed his other opponents,
and Citara emerged victorious in the third set.

ing the football season, our cheerleaders have
instilled a new spirit of pride into our student
body. The snappy new cheers, varying from
the traditional staccato movements to gym-
nastic antics and swing rhythm- have awak-
ened an increasing interest in our cheering
section both in the pep rallies and at games.
The very definite feeling that Aliquippa I'-ligh
was back of them encouraged our teams, and
soon the growing spirit of the student body be-
came reflected in the increased determination
of the athletes to win.
The cheerleading group has devoted its time
faithfully, in regular practice sessions, to the
perfecting of the new cheers and the organiza-
tion of the cheering section. The members of
the squad have also made the arrangements
for trips of organized rooters to accompany
the teams on several out-of-town trips. Though
the cheerleaders were almost all inexperienced
at the beginning of the year, their tireless and
unceasing practice has developed them into a
polished unit, and since the squad is made up
for the most part of underclassmen, we may
expect efficient cheerleading for several years

"A game for every girl and every girl in a
Shank, Hartnett, McMullen, Antonik
game" has been the guiding motto tor Ali-
quippa girls for many years. ln l932 the
C-irls' Athletic Association inaugurated an in-
tramural sports program designed to develop
its members physically, mentally, and morally.

saving are on the C. A. A. agenda. The ar-
rangement considered most practicable for
fair matching of teams is a two-group division:
one group, the junior, consisting of girls from
9B to lOl3 inclusive, and the other, the senior,
composed of lOA to l2A students. From its
earliest experimental stages has evolved our
present stabilized and impartial point system
for letter awards.
Every girl is eligible for three awards, a be-
ginner's award of an arrowhead and class
numeral, an intermediate award ot an arrow-
head with the C-. A. A. insignia and numeral,
and the varsity letter which is granted when
the participant has earned a total of one thou-
sand points. ln competitive intramurals mem-
bers of champion teams are awarded one hun-
dred points, players in second place receive
seventy-tive points, and all others who par-
ticipate in more than halt the games played
by their teams are given titty points. ln non-
competitive activities the points given vary
with each sport. All girls who participate in
the C. A. A. athletic program automatically
become members ot the association.
Intramurals provide a never-ending outlet
tor athletic energy. From the tirst doy gf
school until the last the C. A. A. bulletin board
informs its members of the day's schedule of
every girl in a game

MUSI-lBALL. . .The old reliable, mushball,
both opens and closes the intramural season
for the girls, it is the last sport played before
the summer vacation, and it is resumed im-
mediately after the first day of school in Sep-
tember. With a myriad of female "Babe
Ruths" eager to "fake a cut at the ball," the
shop field is crowded day after day with skilled
sluggers and fielders. For the past several
years the number of participants has been in-
creasing with a new high each year. This
year fifteen full teams took part in their re-
spective leagues, for in mushball, as in all
other girls' athletics, the players are grouped
according to their experiences in either the
Beginners' League or the Advanced League.
The Dukes took the pennant among the be-
ginners while the Aces captured the flag in
the senior group.
VOLLEYBALL . . . As soon as bad weather
calls finis to the mushball season in the fall,
the girls start right in with volleyball. Since
volleyball is played indoors where several
games can be played at one time, a hucle
number of girls are enrolled each year. Al-
most every afternoon the gym is filled to

capacity with gyrating and shrieking dervishes
frantically attempting to keep the ball away
from their opponents' outstretched hands.
The girls who have played before and who are
familiar with the rules act as referees. This
year six teams of experienced players and ten
of newcomers played through their schedules.
The Aces and the Indians won the titles in
their respective leagues.
"On with the game!" . , . volleyball
"Shinny on your own side!"
HOCKEY . . . The clash of the sticks, the
thud of a ball, and the eager shouts of en-
thusiastic hockey players are familiar sounds
to the ears of passersby on the road below the
shop field. The "shinny on your own side"
devotees spend several afternoons each week
practicing and playing field hockey, and this
game has developed into one of the most pop-
ular of girls' sports at A, H. S. The speed of
the game, the skill of ball handling, the invig-
orating autumn air, the quick and unexpected
reversals of fortune which occur during the
games have endeared hockey to the girls. ln
fact, this year so many players responded to
the call that it was necessary to form two
leagues, one for the beginners and the other
for the experienced enthusiasts.
BASKETBALL . . . Swishl Amid the tri-
umphant shrieks of the enthralled players, the
ball drops through the hoop for another score.
The lure of girls' basketball continues to exert
its influence as the major intramural sport for
our feminine athletes. Despite the difficulty
of securing playing time and space, almost
two hundred eager players turned out forming
nineteen teams, eleven of which were com-
posed of first year players. Games are played
whenever time can be squeezed in between
boys' varsity and reserve practice: after school,
in the evening, and sometimes even on school
holidays. The climax of the season was an
All-Star game between teams of experienced
players, the event was so successful that it has
been definitely adopted as the annual feature
which will cap each basketball season.
BOWLING . . . Crash! A well placed ball
sweeps all the pins before it as it thuds against
the backmat, and another bowling enthusiast
is born. Twice each week after school a group
of about a hundred girls fills the Orpheum
Alleys with shrieks of glee at a strike or cries
of disappointment as a ball skithers off the
alley into the gutter. The girls are granted a
reduced rate, and though they themselves
must pay this fee, the number of participants
has more than doubled during the past year.
Only duck pins are used since the ten pin ball
is too heavy and unwieldy for high school girls.
The bowlers are divided into groups, and they,
in turn, conduct their own tournaments.
"Dead-eye for the hoop!"
Ceravolo, Martin, Referee Reich, Rebich, l-lanshew
"Keep it out of the gutter!"

Basketball Bovvling Tumbling
TUMBLINC . . . Rolls, handsprings, head-
stands, balances: all these are in the reper-
toire of the members of the tumbling group.
Formed originally to provide a greater oppor-
tunity for practice for the Spring Exhibition,
the group has attracted quite a large number
of girls who wish to become more skilled in
gymnastic feats. The girls practice individual
and team tumbling, learn to form intricate
human pyramids, and incidentally acquire
that spring and suppleness so coveted by high
school girls. This is the first year tumbling
has been incorporated into the intramural
schedule, but the interest in it has been so
great that it will undoubtedly be continued.
PLAY DAY . . . Members of the C. A. A.
who participate annually in two or more of
the major intramural sports automatically ac-
quire one of the primary qualifications for
membership in the Girls Athletic Leaders
Club, a group which has originated many of
the girls' athletic activities. Among these is
an annual Beaver County Play Day, initiated
in l932, to which nine county schools send
representatives from their respective C. A.
A.'s. Since then, with the exception of one
year, when Midland asked to take over, Ali-
quippa has held annually a spring play day.
This year the motif of the play day was ln-
dian. Ten Aliquippa girls, each assisted by a
lieutenant' captained teams named for lndian
tribes. On each of these teams played a rep-
representative from each participating school.
The program included all kinds of sports from

with each other, Aliquippa girls refereed all
games except basketball, which was refereed
by future physical education instructors from
the University of Pittsburgh. The team cap-
tained by Elsie J. Naddour won the champion-
ship. The prize to each girl on the winning
team was a very colorful lndian peacepipe.

achieved their purpose: to bring together girls

The patriarch of the forest of extra-curricu-
lar activities is the National l-lonor Society.
lt is a landmark which enables every high
school pupil to place himself and what he is
doing. Those who, in after years, look back
to high school days will still see the landmark
shining plainly. The service each semester of
inducting new members becomes a part of
flesh and blood. The ritual, for all its repeti-
tion, never ceases to interest. Casually we
find ourselves listening, sometimes half-
repeating parts of the ceremony. We all
realize the importance, suddenly, of the sig-
nificant purposes of education and of the high
austerity of those purposes. And few there
are who, encountering the work of National
l-lonor Society and witnessing an induction
ceremony, can remain indifferent or keep
from vowing to do better simply for the sake
of better being.

ficult to visualize correctly the exact physiog-
nomy of the original acorn. So is it with the
Quippiani Now that the volume is a fait
accompli, the origins of the book have already
become lost in obscurity and partially have
become legend. Who can remember the first
faint stirrings which were promise of growth?
Who can subtract the inspiration from the
idea- or the idea from the inspiration? Who
can remember the growing pains and their
finely shaded variations? Who can remember
in detail the socials, the games, the assemblies,

the ever increasing deluge of events, and eval-
uate correctly the influx of each new element?
Who would attempt to weigh the value of one
hour against another, the weight of one con-
tribution against the pertinence of another?
Here is the Quippian Committee whose mem-
bers best know of all such things. But they
are now a part of the legend, and in the light
of accomplishment they know that whatever
has been is now less important than what is.
And though the year's end will see the dis-
banding of the Committee, here, at least, is a
tireless legend in which they remain together.

Although the Freshman Girls Chorus is one
of the most recently organized clubs in the
school, there are seventy-two girls enrolled as
members. This club was organized to enable
the girls to become acquainted with each other
and to train them so that they will be ready to
enter the Bach Choir. Each girl is permitted
membership for the duration of her freshman
year. Thus, there is provided a completely
new membership each year. The girls are
willing to appear an both school and civic pro-
grams. Weelqly rehearsals are held on Mon-
days after school.

siderable amount of youthful steam has been
converted into notes which ring true and af-

larger, ever increasing in musical perception
and appreciation. At their best, the boys
crystallize in song a certain spirited quality of
the youth of our school. The organization is
one of the largest of the school's singing
groups. They often sing unaccompanied.
Membership is open to all boys who are inter-

faithful in attendance at meetings.

she file her fingernails short? Why does she
dress in a white uniform? ln curing a sick-

Or bestow blessings upon her? The Future

They spend their time during semi-monthly
