The ALLEGANAC I I I I I I The ALLEGANAC l l l I MR. RALPH R. WEBSTER 'Trincipal We, the class of 1936, place this picture of Mr. Ralph R. Webster, our principal, in our yearbook as a tribute to his inczilculable help and guidance during his two years at Allegany. 1936 1936 FOREWORD Prehistoric man left the story of his life on the walls of his cave. The great Greeks and Romans left their life's history inscribed on parchment scrolls. Great men of today bequeath their auto- biographies to future generations. So we, the graduating class of 1936, leave this our yearbook, as the last record of our four short years of life at Allegany. A i In it we have placed the record of the outstand- ing things in our high school career together with things which we feel will serve best as remember- ances of our four years at Allegany. Thus we leave this book to our successors with a hope that it will not be entirely forgotten and that it will serve well its purpose as both a record and a reminder. The ALLEGANAC i B In my twenty years of service on the Board of Education Ifound it a great pleasure to be associated with the young people of the Public Schools of the County and was very sorry when my term expired. 79 To Mr. Ferman G. Pugh, who served most acceptably as President of the Board of Education of Allegany County for twenty years, we deem it an honor and a privilege to dedicate this page. Mr. Pugh, a successful business man, a co-operator or a promoter in every movement that makes for the civic improvement of our community, is one of Cumberland's foremost citizens. In his various activities-business, social, and religious-he has made many contacts, all of which have won for him the respect and the regard of those with whom he has been associated. The sterling qualities of his character, his pricely generosity, his charity that knows not race, nor creed, not color, and his loyalty to his intimate friends, have made the name of this typical gentleman of the old school an honored one in our city. In our opinion, one of Mr. Pugh's greatest contributions to Allegany county is the impetus he gave to public speaking among its younger citizens, through annual Ferman G. Pugh Inter-Scholastic debates, sponsored by him for sixteen consecutive years. The good that has accrued from this activity is almost incalculable. To Mr. Pugh we feel we owe a debt of gratitude for having encouraged this form of speech work, and for his generosity in having supplied ample incentive fmedals and bannersj to make the art of debate more attractive. Qur ardent wish for Mr. Pugh is a long life, replete with happiness, which he has so richly merited. CLASS OF 1936 1936 1936 -ll The ALLEGANAC Ralph R.

The present "Cumberland Road" after passing this narrow defile which is one mile long, follows the general course of Bradd0ck's Run, north of Allegany Grove. The entrance to the Narrows, which is one mile west of Cumberland, as well as the Narrows themselves, presents one of the most magnificent scenes in the Alleganies. p Wwe f - The ALLEGANAC 4 2.1 , rr I 1 ,Qs Z in 7 g ' g ,I Enfield Jones Abbot Hess Vice-president Secretary President Treasurer The Senior Class In September 1933, what was later termed "a rather frightened 'herd' of Sophf omores" gathered within our beloved school. Thus was begun the noble experi- ment of developing the class of 1936. Our first year, under the guidance of Miss Dyer, our class advisor, and jack Read, our president, showed well our ability in scholastic and extra-curricular activities. The Sophomore reception was our outstanding social achievement. As juniors, again under the leadership of jack Read, we took advantage of most of our opportunities to set an envious record. Departing from the beaten path, we chose a class ring of yellow gold with a raised black onyx set, which will always serve as a treasured remembrance of our days at Allegany. The height of our social activity was reached in the junior-Senior prom held on May 17. Notable also was the forming of several new organizations. Miss Murray was our advisor during this year. Finally, the seemingly shortest year of our school life, our Senior year, arrived and we really began to appreciate the happiness that had been ours. At the out- set, Vaughn Abbot was chosen to guide the destinies of our class. The advisors elected were: Miss Eader, yearbook advisor, Mr. Wickard, dramatics advisor, and Mr. Davis, social advisor. At the beginning of the year, our class introduced a new type of event, the Senior acquaintance dance. Petitions circulated among the students brought about this dance, the purpose of which was to acquaint the members of the various classes with their new friends and surroundings. Now, as the year is about to end, we are preparing for the last activities of our high school days, class night, senior assembly, outing, baby night, class play, prom, and commencement. Thus as the end of what we shall always consider one of the most important periods of our lives draws near, there is in every heart, regret that school ties must be broken and yet hope that the future will bring success and happiness. 1 9 3 6 1-lil IPage 131 N Wiwm I The ALLEGANAC v I E I I 1 I l I I VAUGHN ABBo1'r-Pfesa ' dent of senior classg Boys' lea- gue, 2, 3, 43 Glee club 2, 3, 43 Hi-Y 2, 3, 43 manager of foot- ball 4.

To aid us in our strife, May sweet association And when our school life's over Fill all our school days here, May we fore'er be true And may we all endeavor And loyal to thy colors, To hold thine honor dear. The glorious White and Blue. Refrain: Dear Old High School Our hearts go out to thee, With hope and gladness singing, We pledge thee love and loyalty. Ihave been asked to write a comment for use on this page in connection with the High School Song, telling something of the conditions under which it was written or the incident which incited the writing of it. After thirty-two years, I can not recall any particular incident or the immediate circumstances under which it was written. Along with athletics, dramatics and other so called extrafcurricular music, and during my whole connection with the High School I assumed the direction and leader- ship of musical activities. Feeling the need for a school song, and with the knowledge that so many school and college songs are adaptations, I concluded it would be much more desirable to have one distinctly our own, both words and musicg hence I undertook to provide it. Whether it was done at one time as an intensive eEort, or gradually developed, I cannot recall. My recollection is that John Charles Thomas, who was then a student while his father was pastor of a church in Mt. Savage, introduced it at one of the regular High School Assemblies. We then had the words put on the black-board and soon were singing it regularly. Some years ago I re-arranged the music in waltz time and had a sheet made for the orchestra, I do not know whether or not they for copiesj still exist. It has been a source of gratification to me that with the gradual growth of the school through all these years, and the physical development from the old building on Cumberland street, thru the Green street and Campobello sites to the present location, the song has been retained. I hope that much of the same enthusiastic school spirit which existed then, and which I tried to make the song express, still obtains. To the members of the graduating class I extend my congratulations and best wishes, and in the words of "Our Song" hope that "memories of these school days" will be an inspiration to aid in the developmenrof useful and happy lives. Affectionately, Howard C. Hill Principal, 1904-1911 1 9 3 6 fPage 311 dwg NQC-1 Miify fwi f f le K Bon ersox Jordano Noland King Burton Tncisurer President Advisor Vice-president Secfetarv .lumor Class This year has been the most outstanding year of our high school life. Although we have always done our best to show our ability, we have never quite succeeded until this year. Frank jordano was again elected president and Mr. Noland was chosen advisor. We were active in athletics, musical organizations, declama- tion, debate, and dramatics. Our scholastic standing was gen- erally up tofhe-average, and a number of our members made the honor roll consistently. The class selected two class rings. One is made of yellow gold with a crescent in the center of a raised black onyx, with the letter A superimposed on the crescent. Beneath the crescent is ALLEGANY. The other ring is the same style except that it has white onyx as the setting. Our tribute to the Seniors, the Junior-Senior prom, held near the end of the year, was thoroughly entertaining and drew the curtain on the activities of the junior class. Now that the Junior year of our school life has come to a close, and we scan the horizon, we assure the outgoing Seniors that we shall never falter in carrying on the Allegany tradition. fPage 521 1 9 3 6 n U The ALLEGANA N l . pf' f Sl JUN? J ,af Shaw Dela Grange Nicht Stallings Rudd Vice president Treasurer Advisor President Secretary Sophomore Class At the beginning of this year, our class faced the problem of fulfilling the expectations built up by our success as the first Fresh- man class of the newer Allegany High School. We immediately set about to organize ourselves into a smooth- ly working body. Lloyd Stallings and Miss Theresa Nicht, our president and advisor respectively, were chosen to head the group. Ruth Lee Thompson, Lloyd Stallings, and Bernice Dela Grange were selected as our representatives to the Student Council. Throughout the year our scholastic standing has been notable. Several students attained five A's, a major feat in itself. Helen Winbrenner, Bernice Dela Grange, and Geraldine Weakley continued their leadership in the Held of sports, our chief center of extra-curricular activity. The first dance sponsored by our class, the Sophomore prom, was a great success, at least to us, and gave promise of many gala events in the remaining years of our school life. As the end of another year draws in sight, we of the Sopho- more class leave a challenge to this year's Freshman to maintain the record that we pass along to them, while we promise to en- deavor, as Juniors, to hold high the standards of our predecessors.

The leadership of our class was placed in capable hands with the election of James Sullivan as president and Mr. Delaney as acl- visor. James Sullivan was also chosen to be our representative in the Student Council and the Student Government of Allegany. Great interest has been taken by us in scholastic and outside activitiesg we expect to develop just as rapidly along these lines as any class which has preceded us. The outstanding freshman achievement was the winning of a place on the varsity football te m by Jmes Sullivan. Alertness and hard work made this poagible, and it will serve as an inspiration to us. Although we held no social events purely our own, we did accustom ourselves to the swing of things at such attractions as the Girls' league dance, and we are just itching to try our ability and ingenuity at things of this kind. This year has been surprisingly enjoyable and has given us a hint of the happy days ahead.

Davis Maintaining the standard of former Allegany Student Councils, the Student Council of 19354936 will be remembered for its many accomplishments. lts first accomplishment was the increased attendance at basket- ball games. Through the cooperation of its individual members, the council made a successful drive for the sale of season tickets. The next achievement was the sponsoring of the third annual Loyalty Night. Besides these two projects, during the year, this organization held many profitable discussions on such problems as revision of the honor roll system, honor in the class room, profitable use of five-minute periods, and restoration of order in the assemblies. This club, which is representative of the student body, feels that it has done much in the past year to improve student self- control, service, and school spirit in Allegany High School.

This organization, which was first organized in 1932 and to which all boys are eligible for membership, is governed by an inner council, composed of the officers and four representatives from each class. Heading its list of activities are the general meetings of the league, which are held tri-weekly during the year. At these meetings, many interesting addresses were delivered by prominent men of the community. These men spoke on such subjects as vocations and sports, which appeal to high school boys. Through these talks the members gained much profitable knowledge and advice. Besides the general meetings, sectional meetings were held, in which the boys discussed topics of immediate interest to them. Under the guidance of Mr. Arthur W. Taylor, advisor, and through the efforts of its members, the Boys' League has upheld its keyword "cooperation" and achieved its aim, it has cooperated with the faculty and with other organizations in the school to make Allegany outstanding in the community.

Grganized "for the purpose of assembling the members in cooperative under- standing and unity," the league has put over many projects dur- ing the past year. During the year, six general meetings and twelve sectional meetings were heldg the general meetings for the transaction of business, and the sectional meetings for the discussion of modern culture and etiquette. The social program of the year consisted of three functions: a tea, given in the fall, in honor of the new members, and two tag dances-one November and one in April-to which was invited the entire student body. According to tradition, the league sponsored a "white" Christ- mas and a uwhitel' Thanksgiving. Thus the Allegany Girls' League looks back upon an active and successful year of service to the school and the community. President ....... , ............. Veronica Kompanek Vice-presidents .... ....

Harbert As the year draws to a close, the Allegany Boys' Hi-Y, local chapter of the nation-wide Hi-Y organization, feels that it has moved another step closer to the high goal set for it by the national council. Its aim is to develop Christian character, encourage clean courageous living, and to promote good sportsmanship among the boys at Allegany. To help develop Christian character and encourage clean living, the club heard a series of instructive and inspiring talks by prom- inent men of the community. To promote good sportsmanship, the club sponsored the annual bonfire and rally on the eve of the Penn-Allegany football game. To improve the mutual relationship between the three schools of the city, the Hi-Y cooperated with other Hi-Y Clubs in spon- soring the fourth annual swimming meet. To maintain its position as a social leader in the school, the club, following precedent, held an annual dance on Friday, March thirteenth. Although membership in the club is limited, all boys in the school are eligible for consideration for membership. fpiigf 461 -,-- Vi- -ll 1 9 3 6 MW! r j X- NX!

This organization is an offspring of the Boys H1-Y, ff yr and joins with them in attempting to extend, create, and maintain throughout the school and community, high standards of Christian character. Forty-five elected girls, twenty-live seniors, thirteen juniors, and seven sophomores, constitute the membership of the club. This year the Hi-Y has endeavored, in small ways, to develop a stronger and better school spirit. An annual Valentine dance was thoroughly enjoyed by members of the organization and their friends. Another of its social functions was a "welcome home" for the alumnae during the Christmas season. A large represen- tation of Hi-Y delegates from Allegany attended the conference held in February at Beall High School of Frostburg. Under the advisorship of Miss Simpson the Hi-Y has taken another forward step in accomplishing its high ideals.

The band has made a name for itself in the community since its organization. Ever since its earliest public appearances in 1928, it has held a high reputation as a musical unit. The band began its season by playing at the home football games, oc- casions which provided much experience in drilling. On Armistice Day, it gave a very colorful performance in the parade and won a prize for its excellent appearance and performance. After playing at several out-of-town football games, the band closed its fall season at the Allegany-Penn game on Thanksgiving day. This musical unit received much praise from the radio announcer who broadcasted the game and from the coaches of both teams. Serving in the capacity of a cheering section, the band played at all home basketball games. The public appearances of the band ended with its per- formance at the spring concert. Through the untiring efforts of all the members and the director, this organization has had a very active and successful year and has added great- ly to the pleasure of the public events of Allegany High School.

This foreward step has greatly aided the development of the orchestra and a new standard in musical interpretation has been the result. Throughout the year, the orchestra has played at school as- semblies, debates, dramatic productions, and declamation contests. Music was rendered by this organization at the Chamber of Com' merce dinner, and at the Memorial Service of the junior Order of American Mechanics. Music at both the Allegany and Flintstone commencements was rendered by the orchestra. At the Spring Concert, this popular musical organization again displayed its merit. The orchestra was singularly honored at the all-Maryland high school orchestra in Baltimore, by having ten representatives in this select group. The orchestra has contributed much towards inculcating a taste for classical music at Allegany, and can justifiably have pride in its excellent work. President ....... ....

Eloise Dougherty With the combined efforts of a group of experienced singers and some talented newcomers, the Boys' Glee Club has had an- other year of achievement in the field of harmony. Several new and varied selections were added to the repertoire of the club at the beginning of the season. After diligently practis- ing these selections, the boys were able to sing them like professionals. The first public appearance of the Glee Club was at the annual Spring Concert. The double quartette, a selected group from this organization, also appeared before the public for the first time. The performance was highly praised by all who heard it. How- ever, the culmination of the Cilee Club's schedule was not reached until its annual assembly program. These Taylor-made pro- grams are known for their individuality and wit, along with their splendid harmony. This year's program was received with great enthusiasm by the student body. With the Choral Club, the Cvlee Club made its final appear- ance on the occasion of the Sermon to Graduates. fPage 501 1 9 3 6 ws-. WV' l The ALLEGANAC x 5 , .

Miss Dorothy Willison With its varied repertoire, pleasing appearance, and vocal a- bility, the Choral Club, under the direction of Miss Dorothy Willison, has maintained, during the past year, its popularity in the school and the community. This girls' unit, Allegany's largest vocal organization, has had, this year, a membership of approximately one hundred, exceeding that of any previous year. The Choral Club made its first appearance at the perliminary declamation contest on December seventh. On this occasion a select unit, the Musettes, composed of ten members, made its ini- tial appearance. During the Christmas season, the club went carolling at various places in the city, and at Easter, presented a delightful musical assembly program. Its next performances were at the annual debate and the spring concert, where the girls ren- dered several pleasing numbers. The culmination ofthe year's work was attained with the club's charming performance at the commencement services. Thus the Choral Club of 1935-'36 has carried high the banner of vocal music in Allegany High School. 1936 IPHSCSIJ 1 Octet Comprised of eight of the best vocalists in the school, the octet has, in the past year, brought to many audiences beautiful inter- pretations of many types of music. Crganized for the purpose of providing advanced work in har- monic singing, this vocal group has established and maintained contacts with the community and with organizations in the community. Possibly one of its most impressive performances was part of the Christmas program, the octet rendering a very impressive ac- companiment to the religious pageant. Besides the carols that were sung at that time, a solo entitled "Cantique de Noel" was sung by Ernest Enfield. The octet sang, during the year, at the Kiwanis club, the Rotary club, the Lions club, at Elintstone commencement, at the Spring Concert, and at the Allegany High School commencement.

The membership of the club is limited to ten. Officers are elected each semester in order that many pupils may gain the ex- perience of holding office. A new system has been inaugurated by which a club pin is given upon entrance and later a certificate is presented upon the satisfactory completion of the required work. During this year, the club has been honored with lectures by several prominent photographers. A dark room for the purpose of developing Hlms has been recently constructed by A. K. O. Several new and successful projects involving the intricacies of photography have been taken up. The camera organization was approved this year by the Student Council. Each year, prior to the summer vacation, A. K. O. visits a spot of particular interest to members of the group, to secure interest- ing snapshots. This year Alpha Kappa Omicron had a very en- joyable trip to Annapolis. Presidents ...... ........ R obert Russell, Donald White Vice-presidents .... ....

The foundation was laid on December 6, at the preliminary Tasker G. Lowndes decla- mation contest. jane Luman, who gave a dramatic reading en- titled "How the Larue Stakes Were Lost," and Hugh Shires, who gave an oration, "Ropes," were selected to represent Allegany in the final contest which was later held at Central high school, Lona- coning. These victors received gold medals for their achievements. Jane Luman won the Girls' Declamation banner in the final con- test held on December 13 and thus brought a championship in public speaking to Allegany. Other participants in the preliminary contest were: Muriel Widman, Dorothy Vandegrift, Florence Chandlee, Veronic Kom- panek, Robert Russell, Dixon Beightol, Stanley Whitson and Burns Stanley. Although Allegany did not win the county championship in the William A. Gunter debate contest, we feel that it gave excel- lent performance in this line of public speaking. In the prelimi- nary contest on March 27, the affirmative team, composed of Lee Mortzfeldt, Jane Luman, Hugh Shires and Florence Chandlee, alternate, defeated the negative team composed of Muriel Widman, Dixon Beightol, Veronica Kompanek and Thomas Robinson, alternate. ln the final contest on April 3, the Allegany affirmative won over the Beall negative, and Allegany negative defeated the Barton affirmative. However, since both teams of Allegany and both teams of Bruce were victorious, a debate-off was necessary to deter- mine the championship. This was held on April 6, at Western- port, and the Bruce negative defeated the Allegany affirmative. Veronica Kompanek and Lee Mortzfeldt were awarded the medals given to the Allegany teams. The question for debate was: Resolved, that the several states should enact legislation providing for a system of complete medical service available to all citizens at public expense. fPage 541 1 9 3 6 Dramatic Productions THE CAT AND THE CANARY-Staged November 20 and 22, 1935, directed by Harold C.

TOLL HOUSE All the original toll houses in the states-of Pennsylvania and Maryland were built on the same general plan. An act of the General Assem- bly ofthe state of Maryland in 1831fauthorized the erection of two brick toll houses, but this one, near the Six Mile House, is the only one standing in this state. The old posts of cast iron that were once a part of this toll gate were removed from their place at the old "gate" and are set up as a "relic of former days," in the rear of the Court House in Cumberland. f The ALLEGANAC Back Row: Fred Anderson fAsst.

Football Under the leadership of Allan Twigg, the football team feels that it has added much to its store of football experience, cooperation, and sportsmanship, although it turned in a record not equal to the standard set by former Allegany teams. Allegany opened the season at the Mid-city stadium by defeating the Romney School for the Deaf, 14-O. Playing its next game at Piedmont, the Blue and White team succeeded in scor- ing a 6-O victory over a hard-fighting West Virginia team. Allegany next met its first defeat of the season at the hands of an experienced Keyser machine, with a score of 13-O. Ferndale was the next team to invade Cumberland, only to return home with a 14-13 defeat. To play its first C. V. A. L. contest of the year, the Allegany team journeyed to Hagerstown, where it suffered a 34'6 setback. Playing its next game at home, Allegany defeated Handley High by a score of 27-7, giving Allegany one victory and one loss in the C. V. A. L. A very exciting contest was seen when the Campers topped Waynesboro 20-19 in the third C. V. A. L. clash of the season. The following week, Bedford High brought into Cumberland a fast team that handed coach Harbert's boys a 32-6 defeat. Allegany suffered a 13-6 setback from Martins- burg High in its final C. V. A. L. contest of the 1935 season. In the tenth game of the year, Allegany defeated Ridgely High by a score of 32-6 at the Mid- city stadium. The Campers closed their 1935 campaign by battling Penn. High on Thanksgiving Day in the Mid-city stadium. The south end gridders succeeded in conquering A. H. S. for the first time, giving them a 20-6 setback. Allan Twigg, guard, and Frank jordano, back, were selected on the all-star C. V. A. L. team, and Charles Cubbage and James Sullivan received honorable mention. Iordano had a total of 33 points, placing him third in the league scoring. A Charles Cubbage, end, Paul Gilford, guard, received positions on the all-star city football team, Donald Bowersox and Lloyd Boor received honorable mention. In the city scoring, Frank jordano had a total of 64 points for the season, this placed him third. 1 9 3 6 -ll- lPage 591 The ALLEGANAC .-- Back Row Coach Bowers, George Grant, John Kalbaugh, Robert Kiiffner, Sherman Weatherholt James Roby William McLaughlin, John Carlton, Ben Ritchey, John Metzger, William Wagoner, William Rhind George Berry Roy Hinlcle, john Miller, William Yeager, Wilbert Robertson, Manager.

The Blue and White squad finished third in the W. M. 1. League, accounting for the other five games by three losses and two ties. The iirst contest of the season was played at Beall, where Coach Bowers's boys played a scoreless tie with a hard-fighting Frostburg team. The Campobello team credited its initial victory by defeat- ing Penn. High on the A. H. S. field by the score Z-0. The second tie game of the year was played with Central, at Lonaconing. The defense being very good on both squads, neither team was able to tally a point during the whole game. An experienced Bruce com- bination was the next team to meet defeat by Allegany. flt may be noted here that A. H. S. was one of the few teams in the state that defeated Bruce High during the 1935 seasonj The Hilltop- pers began the second half of the W. M. I. League at Frostburg, where they met their first defeat of the season. Penn Avenue avenged its first loss by defeating the Blue and White squad 4-2 on the South End field. At Westernport, A. H. S. took its third loss of the season from Bruce. The final game of the W. M. I. contest was with Central, at Lonaconing, when Allegany scored another victory by defeating Central 3-O. Jack Read was selected goalie on the all-star team which was picked by a committee consisting of all the coaches in the league. Bill Schaidt and Dick Beveridge, backs, and Fred Burton, forward, received positions on the W. M. 1. second all-star team.

F ieldball Although not having an outstanding record during the season, the fieldball squad feels that it has accomplished something in the line of good sportsmanship and fair play. ln observing the scores of the 1935 campaign, one will notice that most of the contests were comparatively close. lt seemed that the Blue and White squad lacked only a few points from win- ning in four out of the six games. This ia itself shows that the A. H. S. squad certainly had fight and determination. The only victory was that over Penn High, played on the Campobello field in the first meeting of the season between the A. H. S. and South End squads. The result of the game showed Allegany on the top of a 6-5 score. The Blue and White team suffered defeat from the following teams: at Beall, O-6, at Central, 4-12, Beall at home, 7-105 at Penn, 6f1Og Central at home, 7-9. Geraldine Weakley, back, was successful in securing a position on the girls' all-star W. M. l. fieldball team, which was selected by the coaches of the county. Bernice Dela Grange, back, and Fannabel Smith, forward, received places on the second all-star team. 1 9 3 6 fPage 611 I A Back Row: Coach Bowers: Harold Athey, Mgr.3 Lloyd Stallings, Charles Cub- bage, Hoyd Boor, Kenneth Smith, Charles Rhind, Junior Kennell, Robert Shearer, Asst. gr.

Boys' Basketball Winning the seventh state ,championship in the last ten years, the Allegany High Basketball team, under the guidance of Coach Walter L. Bowers, turned in the record of 25 victories and five defeats for the 1935-1936 campaign. Beginning the season with Piedmont, on the West Virginia court, the Blue and White team suffered a 30-Z9 setback. The second game was played with Meyersdale, where Allegany scored its initial victory of the year. Allegany received its second defeat from a powerful Alumni team. Before receiving its next loss, Allegany succeeded in winning six straight games from Ferndale, Keyser, Hagerstown, Barton, Martinsburg and Beall. Allegany lost its first city game to La Salle by a score of 34-28. Westnmont downed A. H. S. 35-33 as a result of a last minute goal. Another six-game winning streak was stopped when Beall High handed Allegany its only W. M. l. League defeat. ln its first clash with Penn, on the A. H. S. court, three extra periods were played, with Allegany finishing at the long end of ii 47-43 score. The Blue and White finished the rest of the season with all victories to its credit. A. H. S. won the W. M. l. League championship by defeating Bruce, 40-18 in the final game after winning over Central, 44-19, and Penn, 40-29. Allegany succeeded in downing Westmont and Ferndale in their return games 36-26 and 45-33, respectively. The Blue and White squad continued in the P. A. l.. tourney to determine the state champions. This resulted in four straight wins: over Oakland, 41-19, Emmitsburgh, 40- 173 Hyattsville, 32-125 and Cambridge 38-16. The Hilltoppers also defeated the Cloak- ers, lnter-state champions, 41-40 in an exhibition game played on the Alco court. Allegany succeeded in having all live players mentioned in the selection for the all star W. M. 1. team. Jack Read and William Schaidt received positions on the first team, Donald Bowersox was placed on the second team, while Frank jordano and Louis Wolf- ord were given honorable mention.

Allegany played its first game of the season with the Alumni on the home court, where it suffered a 26-25 setback. A. H. S. succeeded in making the first W. M.

Allegany played its First game away when it conquered Central High of Lonacon- ing 36-31. Penn High was the next team to be defeated by Allegany. The Blue and White team scored decisive victories over Bruce and Barton thus advancing two more games in the W. M. I. race. In the second meeting of the season be- tween Allegany and Beall, A. H. S. succeeded in downing the Frostburg team 24- 20. Allegany received its first W. M. I. defeat of the season from Central in the return clash. A. H. S. downed Penn High the second time during the campaign with the score 31-26. The final game of the season was played with Westernport, where Allegany battled a hard-fighting Bruce team to a 24-24 tie. With this tie went the hopes of a possible playoff with Central to determine the champions of the W. M. I. league. Fannabel Smith, Bernice Dela Grange, and Geraldine Weakley received places on the first all-star W. M. I. team, and Betty Ritchey received honorable mention.

The ALLEGANAC Xfsf7f:f f f ff . -flQ'0!aJ . ff Track, 1935 One of the best track teams in Allegany's history was riddled by graduation in 1934, so when the first call for candidates was given in 1935, only three men of known ability responded. These three, Captain Donald Buckle, Lamar Minnick, and William "Red" Miller, again proved the truth of the well known saying, "Quality outranks Quantity." Buckle developed into the best distance man Alle- gany has ever had, and he now holds the school record for the Mile Run at 4:51 and the Half Mile at 2:06 3! 5. Minnick established a new school record for the 440 at 54 3! 5, and was a mainstay on such events as the Broad Jump, Pole Vault, and Javelin. He also holds the school record for the last event at 143 feet. Miller was high point man for the year and the winner of the Alumni cup. He developed into an excellent sprinter, being especially brilliant at the 220 yard distance. His new school record of 22 4 X 5 is very fast time for this event. He is also co-holder of the school record in the Pole Vault, at 10 feet 9 inches. Other performers de- veloped as the season progressed. Lloyd Boor came to the front as a good per- former with the weights, Bill Schaidt showed promise in the distance runs, John Hess and Bernard Blough were valuable relay men, while Gerald Carlton came through in the last meet of the year with a 5 foot 6 inch High Jump mark, which brought to him the only first place won by Allegany in the State Olympiod. Outstanding team performances were recorded on May 4, when second place was won at the University of Maryland Interscholastic meet. Berlin high won with 22 points, while Allegany ranked next with 15, due mainly to the work of Buckle, Minnick, and Miller. At the C. V. A. I.. meet at Winchester, Va., on May 18, third place was won. Winchester was first, Hagerstown, second, and Martins- burg, fourth. The Annual City meet, with La Salle and Penn. Avenue as oppo- nents, found the Allegany team in top form. Of the thirteen events on the program, ten were won, and several new records were set. The Allegany score of 70 points more than equaled the combined scores of Penn. Avenue and La Salle. The P. A. L. county and state meets closed the season. The usual handicap of not being allowed to enter a good many games and events proved too strong once more, so as a school we had to be satisfied with second place, with Penn. Avenue as the winner. The writer voices a final wish, that he may live long enough to see A. H. S. given equal opportunity to enter events and to score points with the other county schools on a P. A. I... field day. F. A.

The campers were defeated by Penn Avenue, county cham- pions, 10-5g Everett, 3-lg and La Salle, 7-O. The Allegany High team topped the Romeny Deaf School 15-10, 17-5, Central 15-6, 4-2g Hyndman 9-5, 14-115 Romney 11-1, 1-Og Everett 5-4: La salle 6-53 and Penn Avenue 12-5. All but four regulars graduated last year, and the 1936 team will be built around William "Red" Miller, shortstop, Vernon Cubbage, outfieldg Jack Read, outfieldg and Frank Jordano, husky backstop. Although not attaining the record made during the pre- vious year, the 1935 tossers can be proud of the fine showing they made in the fourteen-game schedule against strong opposition. bl The ALLEGANAC fPage 661 Acknowledgements To Miss Pearl A.

Damage was estimat- ed at S2,500,000. The city was practically cut off from the rest of the world for twenty-four hours. The flood swept the entire eastern water- shed of the Appalachain Mountains from New York State to Virginia. , ,.-. ,I The ALLEGANAC i 5 O fPage 731 I Boosters Paul Hudson Lua Syckes Donald Bowersox Thomas Keech Dolores Wintermeyer Helene Hartung june Clauson Mary Stevenson Maud Lee Wilson Alice Louise Read Miss Mary Rice Robert Gilpin William Huff Harry Bowman Olive Bopp Martha Knieriem Maryland Eyler Edith Goff Louis Wolford Martha Lee Keyser Zuma Steiner Elliott Jett Gretchen Reighard Jane McDermott Charles Beckwith Muriel Widman Bobbie Shearer Eva Simmons Virginia Self Mona Wilson Burton Barnard Robert Sten Millicent Wigfield Lela Nesbitt Louise Copeland William Schaidt Allan Twigg Eugenie Alther Dorothy Broadwater William McLaughlin Dorothy Thompson Helen Smith Betty Lee Smith Lula Welsh Helen Winebrenner Mildred Dennison Leota Perdew Eloise Rafter Edna Shanholtz Charlotte Hartsock Olive Robinette Marguerite Rotruck Fannabel Smith Orville Wolz Stanley Whitson Helen Groves Page 741 19 3 6 .
