OFFICERS 156' Glass st 'tial Qnudiv 1945 Joe P. Faber Anthony Tomeo President Vice President ouise DeMartines Ann Lechman Secretary Treasurer 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 history. 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!

H OFFICERS Glass Evan Tilly Floridge Palombo President Vice President Zora Clipper Patricia Flick Secretary Treasurer 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 graduating. I 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.

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 " . . . May our spirits never die" of the Alma Mater. 00" 4- Top: Brown, Cory, Vurdulja. Batchelor, Polumbo, D. Metropoulos, B. Metropoulos, Shaw.

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 Shaw. 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 Brighton. 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 Quips' record. 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 was easy. 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 win. 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.

Feeling ran high at the game as it 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. Action on the Hardwood Left-Tough luck, Shaw.

K 68 action-pins on fine Diamond 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- ship. 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 straight time. 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 season. .nm Top-Simko attempts a put-out. Middle-Zugay round ing third.

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.

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. few wg," 'T ef: Z,-b 5 ffl is M fig f -X, K L I L -- we ' ' J ' - -:pix .fi Y V Y sr X 'jk 5:5 Y 'ji X 5 'F - -get in X1 "-- -- J , ' Q X Qi I M, ,, ,w ' A up . -Qi'w ,11""'i 7 N Www i K I wllllllllll , ' RQ' , A ' 'xxmci ,' my N--xx Wu" . till. -so fl X gil N" A- L QQ . - its X sag, l f!

Speaking for our first semester Editor, Joe Faber, and myself, I take this opportunity to thank our staffs and all those who made our 1948 QUIPPIAN a reality. To Patricia Flick and Joe Stani- chak-our grateful appreciation for their time and effort beyond duty. To our fellow graduates whose financial assistance so aided our cause. And to Miss Cochran-for without her, we of the QUIPPIAN staff believe the publication of our yearbook would have been an impossibility.
