In view of his credible record as head of the
mathematics department of our high school,
we of the Senior Class dedicate this book to Mr.
Ward D. Jordan. Much of Mr. Jorclan's life
has been spent in public service. Through this
dedication, we wish to pay tribute to the nineteen
years of service which he has spent here with us.

elementary and secondary education there and went on to the
University of Rochester, where he received his Bachelor of Science

IN JANUARY 1944 a class of freshmen entered Aliquippa High School. To the seniors who
laughed at us as we pondered over which were "up,' steps and which were "down,'1 we may
have looked just like any other bewildered ugreeniesn who were getting their first taste of high
school. To us, our group of boys and girls was the most important in the world, for we were just
beginning what proved to be a happy and successful high school career.
We worked and played through four years highlighted by record breaking stamp and bond sales,
the end of the war, a bigger and better band, championship track, cross country, baseball, foot-
ball, and basketball teams, plays produced by an energetic re-organized Dramatic Club, several
well-trained choruses, and an active Junior Red Cross and F. A. R. Club.
In February of 1947, as the first organized class activity, we combined efforts with the June class
for our Junior Prom, "The Starlight Serenadef, During our last semester, we held a round of
gala events including two informal parties in the gym, the "Christmas Dream," Senior Prom, a
laugh-filled color-day assembly, and a banquet at the Colonial.
Then came January ZZ. A commencement program prepared by senior students in speech classes
heralded the event-we received our diplomas.
Dest ite all this merry-making, we ended our high school careers with a large balance in our treas-
ury, raised through the sale of greeting cards and the printing of football programs. As a parting
tribute to the school, we voted to give five hundred dollars to the QUIPPIAN and one hundred
dollars to the National 1-lonor Society Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Our class gave a host of leaders to the school's various activities, sixteen of whom were elected to
the National Honor Society, a percentage of the class unequalled in the Woodlawn Chapter's
Every class thinks it's the best. We think ours, the January Class of 1948, is better. We chal-
lenge you to match our record!

Bai-fled and humble as Freshman, yet determined to make good, we must have proved a hardy lot,
for here we are graduates of Aliquippa High School. Yes, it took a while to find the right rooms,
remember schedules and teachers' names, but we finally mastered the trials, overcame the tribu-
lations, and moved into high school activity as saucy sophomores.
We chose our courses, and most of us have stuck by them-though only now have many of us
realized the worth and appreciated the time spent with our advisers. We began to join in extra-
curricular activities, were duly initiated and hazed by the upper-classmen, and gradually elevated
ourselves as well as our thoughts to the Junior level.
As organized Juniors, our officers and committees planned socials and class parties which were
topped off with our prom "The Starlight Serenade." National Honor Society induction honored
many of our number, and as our responsibilities grew, we felt we were getting somewhere just where
-our senior year would tell.
Yes, we were looked-up-to now. We had leaders on the athletic fields, QUIP SCRIPT staff and
in numerous organizations. Andy Dobo, first semester, and Evan Tilly, second semester, shoul-
dered the headaches of our class presidency as we moved whole-heartedly toward this business of
In combining efforts with the January class for our QUIPPIAN publication, we raised money on
advertisements for basketball programs, held a mouth-watering bake sale, and three class parties
fWill you ever forget the square dance?l Then came the gala event which climaxed our four
years. It was the affair which most of us had looked forward to since our first days in high
school, without the slightest Haw or imperfection, it was the senior prom-our senior prom-a
date which will remain in our books of pleasant memories for several years to come.
All of a sudden, little realizing that we were drawing our careers as high school students to a
rapid finish, it was graduation day. The day that is never forgotten by anyone. And then it was
time to say good-bye to the familiar classrooms and teachers. Thus, we leave Aliquippa High as
the best senior class ever to come out of dear old A. H. S.

Football, a traditional high-spot of Red and Black
activity, was a puzzling mixture of flourishes and
depressions for the 1947 season. Losing fourteen
lettermen from 1946, Coach Aschman had to re-
build his football machine from the bottom up.
With little experience, they lost all but one game,
but in each their determination to win was evi-
dent. Even in defeats, it seemed that Fate, too,
was playing against our boys, with seldom the
right combination of ubreaksl' that could have
won perhaps two or three more ball games.
Carrying the ball from the fullback position were
Clarence Shaw and Frank Orr. I-Ialfback slots
were shared by Florige Polombo, Bob Batchelor,
Matt Belich, Mike Vurdelja, and Norman Cory
who alternately took their stand in offensive and
defensive playing. The quarterbacking depart-
ment went to Mike Lovra, who did the passing
and kicking for the team. In the terminal posi-
tions, we had Bob Grossi, Bill Metropoulas, Way-
man Todd, and John Barone, with tackles, Ernie
Nero and Dan Metropoulas, playing some fine
ball, also. Two newcomers, juniors, Bill Waryck
and John Gregor, strengthened the center of the
line at the guard slots, while Center, Nick Klopo-
vich was kick-off man.
Losing their opener to North Catholic, then beat-
ing Butler, the team was given a definite setback
with their ensuing losses to Central Catholic,
Rochester, Ambridge, Ellwood City, Beaver Falls,
and New Castle. The last games, however, show-
ed a pick-up in team spirit that was seconded by
the home-town following. The will to win evi-
denced at the close of the season emphasized the

THREE YEARS . . . Three Championship Teams
Under the direction of Kenneth Webb, the 1947-
48 basketball squad racked up an outstanding
season record of 18 wins and five defeats to cop
the W. P. I. A. L. Section III and Beaver County
Championships for the third consecutive year.
Unbeatable spirit and desire to play good ball
were evident throughout the season.
Composed of eight senior veterans from the var-
sity and reserve squads, the team included John
Sudar, Joe Zugay, Andy Dobo, Albert Mudry,
John Kendrick, Reginald Bright, Al Tomeo, and
Nick Klopovich. Additions to the varsity squad
were Mike Zernich, James Frank, and Clarence
A starting line-up consisting of Mudry and Zer-
nich at forward, Dobo and Zugay at guard, and
John Sudar at center carried the Quips to a
smashing victory over the Alumni on the local
hardwood for the opening of their pre-league sea-
son. Next, Homestead took the rail-end of a 48-
36 game. The locals then racked up their high-
est score of the season, an 80-29 win over New
In their first away game, the Quips met defeat at
Duquesne with a 46-41 score. Victories over
Johnstown and Altoona brought steady ball back
into play, and North Catholic fell prey with a 62-
46 score as the Section III title race began.
They came, they saw, they conquered, are about
the best words to describe the game in Beaver
Falls. The Quips scored a 50-41 win with A1
Mudry paving a 16 point stretch for honors.
Despite Mudry,s 26 point record, the boys met
defeat in Wilkinsburg. Although not a Section
game, the short end of a 51-46 score did mar the
Returning to the local hardwood, the Quips
bounced back from defeat to turn the fables on
New Castle with a 41-33 win. A winning Sharon
fielder in the last four seconds of play marred the
sectional record of the team in a thrill-packed
Bengal gymnasium, but a 51-39 trouncing for Far-
rell reprieved them.
Ellwoocl City was next on the local agenda, and
with John Kendrick's fine playing, the 54-42 win
But the never-to-be-forgotten game of the year
was the Ambridge tilt. With the football defeat
ringing in their ears, the boys tore the Bridgers
apart, rivet for rivet, as they scored their 75-24
Proving their only defeat at home, the Beaver
Falls Tigers played tit-for-tat with a 51-48 defeat
for the title-bound Quips.
Now the going was rough. A win over New

proved to be one of the most spirited on the floor
and in the bleachers. The feeling ran so high
that spectators damaged the players bus to the
extent of 5225.
With forty seconds remaining in the tilt, Mickey
Zernich made a basket and gave Aliquippa a 42-
40 victory over the Sharon Bengals in their sec-
ond meet. Traveling to Farrell for a contest that
eventually decided the outcome of the sectional
race, the team once more relied upon Zernich for
the winning basket. Their hard-fought 39-37 de-
cision proved the last of the thrillers as Ellwood
City and Ambridge again fell easy prey to the
Quips, might. The Wolverines went home with
a 66-42 defeat while the Bridgers were once more
shellacked with a 58-29 score. Now the locals
were Pitt Stadium-bound for a try at the W. P.
I. A. L. Championship.
With A1 Mudry scoring 17 points, the Quips beat
Scottdale in a quarter-final tilt with a score of 49-
39. But in meeting McKeesport in the semi-
finals, the boys showed the effects of a long, hard
season and lost their heart-breaker, 46-36.

The opening pitch of the Quip and Ambridge
game ushered in the 1947 W. P. I. A. L. baseball
season which netted Aliquippa High another vic-
torious team. With most of the veteran players
returning, the Red and Black's prospects for an-
other successful season were very encouraging.
Directed and guided by Coach Lippe and whole-
heartedly cheered by the entire community, the
Quips diamond players swept from one glorious
victory to another to finish what they thought
would be another trial at the section champion-
Due to an infraction of the rules, the Quips lost
the first seven games on forfeit. Lloyd Cable and
Joe Ceravolo, two Quip mainstays, participated in
a charity basketball game with Coach Sam Milan-
ovich and were declared ineligible because Mr.
Milanovich was considered a professional, there-
by eliminating the Quips from the flag race. Ali-
quippa would have completed its difficult ten
game schedule undefeated and would have trod
home with the section bacon for the seventh
Playing honors were distributed among Ciccone,
our second baseman, who with an average of 515,
won the reputation as the best lead-off batter in
the section, first baseman, Clarence Neish, who
also was good with the "big stickug Joe Ceravolo
at shortstop and Simko at third base completed a
strong and well fortified infield contributing their
share of fielding and hitting. Joe Zugay, Lloyd
Cable, and Edward Evanko alternately carried
the pitching chores and outfield duties with Nick
Klopovich supporting them as a relief hurler.
William Slezak, Bob Grossi, Albert Dukovich,
and Steve Celich saw action behind the plate.
Mike Lovra and Bob Wallace participated in sev-
eral innings of play in the infield while Tom Rich-
ards and Lou Villa alternated in the outfield.
Marvelous teamwork was displayed by all the
boys, and often it was difficult to decide who was
the star of the game. The speed, agility, and co-
ordination of the Quips deserve our thanks and
appreciation for their fine play throughout the

Coach Sam lVlilanovich's reserves, the future varsity, completed just as successful a season as the
varsity. The reserves, however, accomplished something that many reserve teams of the past
could not: They defeated the Sharon reserves in a home game. Many of the games were very
close, but our reserve team had a firm hold on victory. Dale Cable and George Danovich led the
team in scoring throughout the season. It was the consistent playing of these boys that enabled
the reserves to achieve such a record. All the preliminary games were well played and gave the
spectators something to remember in view of our next basketball season. If these boys play the

The Junior High Basketball team, coached by Roger Jones, has completed the most successful
season in the history of the high school. They have copped twenty-two straight decisions with-
out a defeat, and the Junior W. P. I. A. L. crown. This record even surpasses the 1944-45 sea-
son when, with one loss, the Junior High team still took the W. P. T. A. L. crown. Their daily
practice sessions have not only proved creditable, but it will in the future as they step into the
varsity roles. This year they participated in a rather tough schedule, with teams such as Am-
bridge, New Castle, New Brighton, and Greensburg for the WPIAL championship. The exper-
ience gained in these games brings them that much closer to reserve and varsity duty.

Affiliated with the national Student Council, this group of homeroom presidents
serves as a unifying force to discover the need for and work toward improvement of
the high school as well as schooling its members in parliamentary procedure.
Elected each semester, these spolcesmen for their homeroom groups bring before
the Council such problems, complaints, and applicable improvements as may bet-
ter school spirit and property.
Beaver Falls High Schoolls Student Council were among recent visitors of the

Serving the school by ushering at athletic events, graduation exercises and school-community pro-
grams, the Hi-Y may well be called a service organization in addition to providing its members
with a yearly program of social, athletic and instructional activities.
In striving to live up to and promote clean speech, clean sports, clean scholarship! and clean living,
the I-Ii Y boys' purpose is to create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community
high standards of Christian character.
Social events of the year included the annual sweetheart and father and son banquets and attend-
ance at a Pittsburgh Hornets' hockey game. The boys also purchased blue sweaters with their
triangular emblem on them. In addition to regular visits to district YMCA's, the club is active
in intra-mural basketball and soft ball.

A group of advanced girl vocalists, the Special Chorus draws its members from the larger Girls'
Chorus. Equally as active as the other groups, the girls are often called upon by civic organiza-

school socials. They hope to accumulate enough funds to purchase robes for themselves.
