What makes up this thing, Allegany High
School? There are over 1500 separate individ-
uals, all here for one purpose, disguised
though it may sometimes seem, the purpose of
learning. To teach them there exists what
often appears to be a countless number of
faculty members, and behind them stands the
Board of Education, who in turn advises the
administration. Besides the people, there is the
intangible part of Allegany, the atmosphere
it lends to all phases of school life-the friend-
liness and the sincere effort to help. Every-
where we find this atmosphere, on the campus,
in the corridors, and in the classrooms. And
everywhere we are beset by the immensity
of our institution and the immensity of that
which we started out to achieve. With every
bit of information we pick up, we become a
little more aware of our smallness as com-
pared to the whole . . . we are but one of
the many who are engaged in the pursuit of
knowledge, but, if we have learned to the best
of our ability, then we have accomplished what
we set out to achieve. The faculty has done
its part toward furthering us on our road . . .
despite numerous quizzes and detention peri-
ods, they have given us something wonderful
for they taught us to understand our fellow

administration has yet to be stumped by their
duties. An ever-ready, "Hello, there" is their
trade mark Whether you just pass them in the
corridor or go to them with one of your num-
erous problems. Every position requires tact
and understanding as part of their every day
routineg and these two qualities are an inher-
ent part of their make-up. With the demand
for high school trained workers mounting every
day, they are faced with the ever-increasing
task of directing the preparation of students to

There is never a dull moment at Allegany
. . . from the time school opens, when every-
one immediately begins making plans for those
special football weekends and the election ot
the Football Queen, until the end of school,
when Senior activities occupy the minds and
time of the eager. There is always a feature
attraction like the Mirror - the dances of all
kinds and sizes-those late evenings in the
gym putting up the crepe paper streamers for
the function on the next night-the publication
of the Allegewi-the choosing of the Allegewi
Queen-her thrilling reign, cut all too short
by the coronation of new royalty at the next
big social affair.
Getting up for Monday classes as you think
of the weekend just past and wonder-the
Twirp Dance when the gals stood for the whole
bill-the Tri-Hi-Y and Hi-Y Dance when he
had to pay-the Iunior-Senior Prom-Class
Play-Class Night-the excitement of the Sen-
ior Prom-Commencement-all of these events
contribute to the atmosphere of Allegany and
help to make that atmosphere exceed the aca-
demic . . . you will remember the highlights of
your life at Allegany, and the spirit which
penetrates lar beyond the classroom.

Every year, the Tri-Hi-Y sponsors the White
Thanksgiving. Club members collect tissue-
wrapped canned goods and cash donations
from the pupils of Allegany High. Baskets are
then prepared for delivery to the needy fam-
ilies ot the community.
"Your Pep!" Yes, "You've got it, now keep
it!" at the pep-meeting before the Thanks-
giving Day Game, the whole student body
urged the team to continue its great record
and to beat Fort Hill.
The Alcohi Mirror issues a special Thanks-
giving Edition featuring the Football Team,
Miss Campera IV, and the annual Turkey Day
Game. Many teachers, many students, and
many boosters used this medium to express
best wishes lor the team.
Here is a part of
the 8,200 people
who witnessed the
Game and saw
I-llco tie Fort Hill
7-7. Many who
saw the contest
say that I-Xlco

tries to listen to speaker, but eyes keep wan-
dering to rolls of paper piled before him . . .
tied between blue and white ribbons swarm
happy memories compiled between that first
confused day and now, the day after the last
textbook has been closed . . . reluctantly he
comes to the realization that it is all over . . .
the confusion during seventh grade registra-
tion . . . the pep rallies . . . last minute touches
on decorations . . . wonderful proms . . . frozen
toes and fingers as he cheered Alco to victory
in an important football game . . . Christmas
Carols from the music rooms . . . Assemblies
. . . the Allegewi Queen . . . those fears before
final exams . . . when they were over, the
empty feeling that this shall be no more . . .
the speaker is almost finished . . . this is the
end . . . but is it? . . . His class is singing "Dear
Old High School" . . . he views the road
which lies ahead . . . it represents a world to
conquer . . . it is not the end . . . his memories
tucked within the paper, tied with Blue and
White ribbon, are not dead . . . they are alive
. . . it is they which will help him on his jour-
ney, for now he is fortified to face the world,
fortified with knowledge and understanding.

Who are those busy people whose names
appear in the Alcohi Mirror as sponsoring a
school event, directing an extra-curricular
activity, starring in a new play, writing the
spirit of Allegany between the lines of their
publications? They are the school leaders: they
could be you. For the activities of Allegany
are not closed organizations, open only to a
select few. They are there waiting for any and
all willing to devote a little of their time and
effort. And you will have a wonderful time as
you make your contribution . . . those dead-
line days spent haggling in the Allegewi room
. . . those terrific rehearsals for the shows
. . . those lovely voices from Rooms 218 and
220 as the musical groups practice for the
Spring Concerts . . . those brisk fall afternoons
outdoors as the drum-majorettes do their fancy
stepping in preparation for next Saturday's
game . . . the hectic times spent in reaching a
Mirror deadline . . . studying the activities of
the United Nations .. . . planning for World
Peace . . . French Club and Spanish Club . . .
taking and developing our own pictures . . .
posters, posters, posters . . . and then the final
culmination of all their efforts as the members
are awarded the school letter for outstanding
work. A high school career spent between the
covers of a book is not complete: it is the activi-
ties which make for the well-rounded school
life and a well-rounded student able to meet
the demands of our modern world.
allegewi of '54
In recording the year's activities at
Allegany, the Allegewi has lacked noth-
ing in potential material. Everyday some
new and unusual event was taking place.
We have tried to portray these event as
they affected the student's life.
Although all yearbooks must contain
essentially the same material, it is the
hope of each editor and staff to produce
a book as different as possible from any
previously published. This year's book is
different-it is also unique. It is the prod-
uct of genius, sometimes mad, sometimes
misguided, but nevertheless genius. The
Allegewi has gone modern in every sense
of the Word-layout, type, copy, photog-
raphy, and cover.

societcls inventum clramaticorum
Offering activity tor young actors, S. I. D. is composed of boys and girls from grades seven, eight
and nine who like to participate in dramatic Work.
Pertinent reports and demonstrations are given at Weekly meetings on make-up, diction, gestures,
and correct postures as essentials in becoming actors.
The climax ot the year comes on the day when the club presents its annual assembly produc-
tion. Here, these young thespians put into practice the fundamentals they have learned and get an
insight into what lies ahead in upper-c1assmen's dramatics.
Here's Where majorettes are made.
The aim ot this organization is to prepare girls tor the important task ot being a majorette in
the Allegany Band.
Under the capable guidance ot Dorothy Metz, the senior drum majorette, the members practise
twirling and the intricate manuevering ot a baton.
Once each year, the club displays its talents in an assembly and more otten by marching with
the Iunior Band at some of the I. V. games and in parades.

Allegany's athletic program is founded
upon one thing, the ideal of good sportsman-
ship, and it is with this ideal that all athletic
events are carried out, whether it be the
Championship contest in Basketball or an in-
tramural game fought over the muddy ground
of the athletic field. When we think back on
the fall season, we are warmed by the mem-
ories of those Friday and Saturday evenings
in Fort Hill Stadium, as with hoarse but jubi-
lant voices we cheered the Blue and White on
. . . the anxiety, and the final joy as we
watched our team emerge victorious .... But
football must share laurels with basketball . . .
and again, we delighted in the play and the
triumphs of the Camper five . . . baseball fol-
lowed and we were just as happy cheering
for the Alco nine . . . and then came Track
. . . and we were pleased with the efforts of
the cinder artists .... Truly, we are mighty
proud of all our teams. We are likewise proud
of our intramural schedules . . . and the Girls'
Athletic Association, which sponsors athletic
contests for the fairer sex is deserving of our
praise .... We are happy to be a small part of
the sports program at Allegany High School
. . . for each sport is founded upon and upholds
our ideals of democratic play and good sports-
manship which Allegany upholds at all times.

THE BETTER TEAM LOSES
The Allegany High Campers opened their
1953 season with a slam-bang performance
against mighty Patterson Park of Baltimore, but
it wasn't good enough. The Clippers walked off
with a hard-earned 12-6 decision.
More than 5,300 fans saw Lester's Campo-
bello eleven surprise the Baltimore Champions
with a second-period TD in a display of power
that gave the game an upset tinge. However, the
Clippers fought back after the sting, tied the
score shortly before the half, and then took to the
air early in the third quarter for the victory
Ioyce and Rank were standouts in the back-
field while Wisler and Hadra were particularly
effective on the forward wall.
ALLEGANY FLATTENS BEALL
The Lestermen scored their first victory of the
season at the expense of Beall High. Alco's pow-
erhouse, held at bay for almost three periods by
a series of penalties, broke loose for three late
touchdowns to overwhelm an inept Beall High
team, 28-0, before a packed stadium of Frostburg.
The Campers of Coach Roy Lester jumped the
snap on the line and in the backfield eleven times
to nullify four touchdowns which cost the team
95 yards in rushing. Two other 5 yard penalties
were plastered on the Blue and White during the
afternoon to set the Campobello machine back a
total of 105 yards.
REVENGE OVER THE HUBS
The Lestermen scored their second win of the
season as they rolled to a convincing, 20-6, win
over the Hubs of Hagerstown.
In marking up the victory, the Campers dem-
onstrated their power by marching to three touch-
downs and just falling short on another occasion.
The victory was the first a Blue and White eleven
has scored in four years over a team coached
by Mel Henry.
Iunior halfback Bucky Rice was the star of
the show with a 55 yard punt return for a TD in
addition to another touchdown jaunt. Dick Rank
scored the other six-pointer for the Lestermen.

Rice, besides scoring Allegany's first touch-
down weaved and faked his 140 pounds through
the huge Keyser line for l43 yards in 21 rushing
It was Rice who sparked every Alco scoring
Statistically, Keyser was never in the game.
Allegany led in first downs, 16-3, net yards rush-
ing, l93-42g and passing yardage, 78-41.
This exhibition of power was an index of
things to come. The Alco team was ready for all
comers including the opponent of them all-Fort
Hill High School.

With only 45 seconds, ticking away on the
scoreboard clock, halfback Eddie Ioyce rocked
his way into pay-dirt from the two yard line to
give Allegany its hard earned victory, 13-6.
THE BULLDOGS GROWL
A determined Camper eleven, seeking their
fifth straight victory, invaded Martinsburg, W. Va.
The Martinsburg Bulldogs were out to stop the
Marylanders and, as a result of this feeling, local
fans witnessed a fierce gridiron battle as Alle-
gany finally turned the tide with a l3-0 victory.
Allegany tallied its first six-pointer in the first
period after a poor Martinsburg punt was re-
turned to the Bulldogs own 30 yard line. Five
plays later, Eddie Ioyce smashed over from the
six to score and Rank added the conversion.
It was not until the middle of the final stanza
that Bob Kirtley was able to direct the final score.

ALLEGANY EDGES LA SALLE
A 53 yard march, spearheaded by Quarter-
back Bob Kirtley's running and passing gave the
Campers a fourth period TD and a thrilling, 7-5,
victory over a determined band of La Salle
Kirtley plunged over from the one to cap the
sustained drive and then surprised the Explorers
with a pass to End Bob Reiber for the game-win-
ning extra point.
In one of the most exciting and hard fought
contests of the season between the evenly match-
ed teams, a crowd of 5,500 saw La Salle tally
first early in the third period, on a 34 yard run
by Fullback Hudson, to take a 6-0 lead.
The all-important extra point try was fumbled
by Hudson, holding for Kegg to kick, as Alle-
gany's defense smothered the play.
ALCO "OUT-SKATES" ELKINS
The weather outside was frightful, but it could
not stop the Campers as they "out-slid" the El-
kins Tigers, 20-0, to record their seventh straight
Before less than l,000 fans, who braved the
snow-blizzard weather, Allegany struck with
sudden fury as the game got underway and from
then on held the Tigers at bay as Alco registered
three TD's in the driving snowstorm which at
times made visibility almost impossible.
Kirtley again was the star of the game be-
cause of his generalship in directing the plays.
Ioyce, Wartzach and Lowery scored the touch-
downs. Rank added two extra pionts.
The Campers completely dominated the sta-
tistical department, holding the Elkins team to a
net yardage of 38 yards on the ground and 9
through the air, while they chalked up 151 yards
rushing and 30 yards by air.

ALCO TIES FORT HILL, 7-7
Allegany and Fort Hill shared City Cham-
pionship honors as the two stubborn gridiron
powers battled to a thrilling 7-7 deadlock. It was
the first time since 1948 that a Camper eleven
could halt the charges of the mighty Hahnmen. A
tense crowd of 8,200 sports enthusiasts witnessed
the 26th Thanksgiving Day Classic.
Climaxing a 70 yard Alco drive in the second
period, "Nook" Weller crashed the scoring col-
umn on an end-around play. Dick Rank added
the placement. A Fort Hill scoring attempt, late in
the same period, was frustrated when Iim Hoffman
intercepted a pass in the Allegany end zone and
returned the ball to his own 17 yard line.
Deep in the third quarter, Fort Hill lost the
ball on downs at the Allegany fifteen. On the
Linda Lowe -
next play Kirtley picked up ten yards, but a pen-
alty set the ball back on the Campers' ten. Dick
Bittner pounced on an Allegany fumble and the
Sentinels took over on the two. The Lestermen
put up a valiant goal line stand for three downs,
but it was not enough as Ralph Poling smashed
to pay-dirt. Gene Weber's boot tied the score and
that Was the ball game.
The Sentinels failed to score a first down by
rushing but completed six of nine passes for five
first downs and 78 yards. They made their sixth
first on a Camper penalty.
The Campers collected six of their nine first
downs on the ground for 132 yards rushing, two
firsts were the results of penalties and one was
by way of the airlanes.

Allegany's fastest man Charles Eirich ran in only
three meets which certainly did not enhance the
Campers' scoring opportunities.
Eirich was little short of sensational in the meets
in which he did participate, running the 100 yard

the important County Meet.

OFF TO A GOOD START
The Campers opened their 16 game schedule
by defeating Central, 4-3, at Campobello. The
game was a pitchers' duel with a total of six hits
and twenty strike-outs in the contest. Freshman
Harry Iser was the winning pitcher.
DOWN GOES MT. SAVAGE
Mt. Savage was the next victim to bow to
"Hubie" Radcliffe's Alco nine as the Campers
dumped the Indians, 7-3, at Mt. Savage. Iser
chalked up his second straight win.
LOSING THE FIRST ONE
"Chuck" Eirich, taking a fling at pitching for
the first time, got his first starting assignment
against La Salle and lost, 8-6. Kirtley of Allegany
and Shuck of La Salle belted homers.
BEATING THE BULLDOGS
The Campers upped their Bi-State Conference
record to 3-l by beating "Augie" Eichorn's Bruce
Bulldogs, ll-6, at Allega.ny's field. Eirich belted a
homer and three singles in four trips to the plate.
Iser was credited with the win, his third in a row.
SCALPING THE INDIANS
Iser continued to flash great form as he threw
a five-hitter at Iohn Thomas' Mt. Savage Indians
to win, 6-3. In racking up his fourth victory, Iser
also had two hits. "Bucky" Rice contributed two
bingles in the Alco attack.
TOO MUCH CENTRAL
Alco dropped its second game of the season,
4-3, as they managed to get only two hits off Cen-
tral's Iack Brodie. "Chuck" Eirich was the losing
Bob Dawson, getting his first starting assign-
ment of the season for the Campers, pitched great
ball but lost a heart-breaker, 2-U, to the Fort Hill
Sentinels. It was the Campers fourth loss in a row.
A home-run, over the centerfield fence by Shaffer
of the Sentinels, was the deciding hit in the
ISER WEAKENS AGAINST BEALL
Beall High's Mountaineers finally broke Iser's
magic spell, 8-5, as they jumped on him during
the early innings. Bob Dawson, who took the hill
in the third inning, did a masterful pitching job.
The damage, however, had already been done.
Eirich had another field day with a homer, a
triple, and a single in four trips to the plate.
BEALL GOES ON A RAMPAGE
Beall again bested the Campers as they got
15 runs and a like number of hits to record a
15-5 victory. Ten big runs crossed the plate in
the third frame for Beall as Eirich dropped his
third game. Kirtley with a double and Eirich with
a homer paced the Alco hitters.
THE SLUMP'S THE THING
The Campers continued their slump as the La-
Salle Explorers bested Iser, 10-6. Iim Hoffman had
a triple and a single to pace the Alco batsmen.
This was Alco's third loss, in City play.
GOING DOWN, DOWN, DOWN
Hyndman provided the opposition for Alle-
gany in the next encounter. They soundly
trounced the Campers, 12-5, as Iser lost his third
straight game. Eirich had a homer, a triple, and
a single to provide a bright spot in an otherwise
THE WORM TURNS
Hyndman returned the visit two days later
and fell to "Hubie" Radcliffe's charges, B-2, as
Bob "Fat" Boy" Dawson hurled superb ball. Hoff-
man had a homer and a single and Freshman
Rodney Breedlove had two hits to set the pace
EIRICH WINS HIS FIRST GAME
"Chuck" Eirich chalked up his first win as the
Campers downed Bruce, 8-6, in Westernport. Iim
Hoffman and Rodney Breedlove socked two hits
each to lead the Alco nine.
GOING TO TOWN
Apparently having shaken their losing ways,
Radcliffe's boys recorded a 10-9 decision over
Flintstone with Iser getting his fifth win of the
year. Iser was also the big gun with the bat as he
rapped out two triples and a double. Eirich
helped out with three singles.
SAME OLD SENTINELS
The Campers closed the season by losing to
Fort Hill, 7-3, on the Sentinels' field. Iser hit a
two-run homer for the Campers and, according
to Bobby Cavanaugh, the Sentinels' Coach, it
was the longest homer ever hit on the Fort Hill
diamond. Dawson was charged with the loss.
