ALLEGHENY HIGH SCHOOL
Pitisburgh -:- Pennsylvania
Remember that manis life lies all within this present,
As for the rest, the past is gone, and the future yet unseen.
0 the inquiry, what is the most precious possession of man-
kind, there are probably as many answers as persons who
attempt to reply. As a mere suggestion, we offer Memory as
the greatest possession and often the least valued one. Imagine
being unable to remember a thing that has occurred in the
past: pleasant occurrences that are a joy to review, sad experi-
ences that have made us wiser. Therefore, we, the class of
.lune 1935, have assembled this record of three years of high
school life. If in the future a glance through these pages will
awaken pleasant memories, then we, the staff, feel that though
the past is gone, its spirit may yet live again, and that its work
has been well worth while.

Annals of The June l935 Class
'OUR long years ago this class dipped its pen into the ink of high school
life and began to write history. On the first leaf of that book is recorded
the timid entrance of the ninth graders who pioneered for us. They faced the
difficulties that confront every investigator into new and unknown. They knew
no one, they were insignificant, and tbefore them lay the world.
One year later came the emigrants from Latimer and Conroy. Like the
great melting pot of America, Allegheny has taken material from many schools
and from many sections of the city and -has molded it into the shape of a com-
pact, united body.
Some of us went to see school football games for the first time. And how
marvelous it was to mingle with the upper-classmen, to cheer, alnd to Win or
lose! And how our hearts beat when the Red and Blue band pflayed our own,
our school song! And wasn't it wonderful to be able to have a social? But
school life held no great fascination as yet, we were plugging at our studies
because we felt that it would be unspeakable conduct to fail our recitations.
Fortunately, some of us have -never been able to lose that idea.
A vacation. Again the sands of time flowed toward the opening of the
school year. An immense change had been wrought in the minds of many of
this graduating class. A feeling of pride in. the school began to surge through
our veins. We openly spoke of the virtues of the balcony, of our fine, marbled
halls, of our good libraryg and of the beautiful park, llake, and conservatory
that were always ready for our enjoyment. School tradition began to interest
us, we learned of Allegheny's greatness and often resolved to do our part to-
ward upholding it.
At the same time, grades, courses, and college problems thrust themselves
upon our minds. Vlfe laid plans for our future, class offices, Lit, student coun-
cil, and even the Prom. The great change toward serious thought directed
r careers into various channels Highest honor students began to make their
appearance, and the honor roll claimed more and more of our members. The
teams also took notice of us and acquired the gifted ones of the group for
- . . h
future service. Athletic heroes began to appeal in a new light, we knew t em
personally. Senior plays became a necessary part of our education, and the
Wah Hoo was no longer a luxury but a necessity. Then, with a terrible fore-
boding, we made a sllight pause in our meteoric career.
"High and Mighty Seniors" became the title, but, peculiarly, there was
no visible change to denote that we were in the ranks of the great. Lit be-
' ' ' ' ' N h'l l nder-
came our privilege. It felt good to walk 1nto the auditorium w 1 e tie u
. , .
classmen wonder!-fed as to the excitement. The Senior Ascamfpaiglned loudlly
for their Lit officers. No question, however, but that Edwm P un was to e
On we soared, victory after victory un-til the football championship seemed
ours. Came disappointnient, but it really was satisfying to trounce Oliver and
Perr . Now the Wah Hoo honored more and more of our members, and took
them into positions of trust.
One November afternoon we trooped to the auditorium, acting important
nd im ressive The result of that meeting was the election of Chester Adams
a p .
as class president, of Edwin Pfund as vice president, with Sobehart to keep
the minutes and Hellen Arch to take charge of the finances.
Finally, as the great semester approached, we witnessed a magnificent key
presentation program, with some of us alternately laughing and almost cryrng.
Q .As our final era of higl1 school life dawned we found the class distributed
ln slx report rooms. The presidents immediately took important positions in
the affairs of student council, with Pfund as its president Hlld Rita Don-nelly
as its secretary. These two were elected the same respective positions in
Literary Society. The Wah Hoo fell into the leadership of Charles Spiegel
and Virginia Hunt. But this was not the end of our important positions, for
members of our group presided -over both the Cdllcge Clubs, both Leaders
Clubs, Shakespeare, 0.G.A., Naturalist, Radio, Senior Hi-Y, Boosters, French,
Spanish, afnd Architecture Clubs.
We put on our Wah Hoo skit, and soon thereafter all the senior ro-oms
supported the magazine l00fZy, and the school hung up a new record of 953
subscriptions for the first issue. The serious business of being seniors was
illustrated when the first report period found nine highest, thirty high, and
forty-seven honor students among 12A's.
The basketball sefason was also mostly our affair, and although we did
not win, the championship, we found consolation in the fact tl1at there is more
to sport than winning.
Again we chose Chester Adams as leader of our class, with Pfund as vice
president. Harold lde was elected treasurer, and Mary Sartorio secretary.
And do we remember the beautiful spring-like night of April 26? Of course,
it was our last social.
Our Senior Play, Growing Pains, in which Rita Donnelly and Ernest
Wuertliele played son and daughter to Professor Hanzel and his wife Virginia
Wlenand was a great success. The matinee was crowded and the evening per-
formance had a full house.
A pleasant surprise came when we learned that the school would again
have a baseball team, and a good one at that. A contest was staged to find the
room volleyball champion of the school. One-Eleven won in the winners
bracket, but Three-O-Seven came from below to triumph and then went to
Latimer to add another victory.
- The spring concert in May brought forth the best in our orchestra, band,
and choral groups. Soon came convocation day, the assembling of all seniors
at Syria Mosque, and in rapid succession followed the key ceremony and
senior day assemblies. The great social event takes place June 14, at the
Chartiers Country Club, famed for soft lights and beautiful music. Heavy
hearts, outwardly trying to show gayety, march in the Heinz Auditorium, drink
in the words of farewefll, and receive the Hnal token of their high school years,
the diploma. Thus closes the annals of the class of June 1935.
Our debt to our Alma Mater is not reckoned in the figures men employ
to express material values. Though we have seemed unmindful, the realiza-
tion of that debt has not escaped us. The exterior is at best but a poor imlta-
tion of the mind. Let thoughts rather than words, the idea rather than the
expression of it signify our thanks to the faculty, to the office, and to all those
who have helped us to write this era in our lives.
Chronicle of The Class of June, l935
February 6-The first day of school! We wander through the hall with a
superior air for at last we have achieved the lofty heights of Seniors. Our
class is large and talented. Many unusual achievements are expected of
February 6-The Senior rooms are six in number. They will be guided by
Mr. Henning, Miss Heck, Mr. Blakeslee, Miss Miller, Miss Riddlle, and
February 7-Home rooom elections reveal that Madeline Butler, Edwin Pfund,
Chester Adams, Emro Quashnock, Mary Sartorio, and Rita Donnelly will
wield the gavel in the senior rooms.
February 15-The first Wah Hoo meeting. This semester promises to be ain
entertaining one insofar as the Wah Hoo is concerned. Co-editor Charles
Spiegl will take charge of the first three issues, and co-editor Virginia Hunt
will be entrusted with the year book.
February 15-Literary Society meets for the first time. The popuflar Edwin
Bfund will preside and Rita Donnelly will jot down the minutes. Pat Mc-
Aindrews will hover in the background as vice president.
March 4 and 6-The Wah Hoo Skit. An old-time melodrama depicting the
trials and tribulations of Little Nell when her copy of the Wah Hoo is
stolen. Of course, the thief is brought to trial, but his sentence is light
when the full particulars of the case are explained. Will anyone forget
Judge Charles Spiegl's attempts at severity or Little Nell, Virginia I'Iunt's
March 10-The first Wah Hoo! Did you note the nonchalance of the staff
when congratulations were offered? Admiration for the attractive cover
and interesting literary material was widespread.
March ll-The semester play is to be Growing Pains. Practically all the two
hundred fifty-four members of the senior class appeared for tryouts. Miss
Howe will probably have a great problem on her hands attempting to
choose the best of the best ability.
March 13-At last the results of the class election are announced. Chester
Adams will lead, Edwin Pfund acts as vice president, Mary Sartorio takes
the notes, and Harold Ide will guard our depleted funds. Vague rumors
have been floating about concerning proms, picnics, and socials.
March 13-Student Council announces the election of its officers. Edwin Pfund
will preside, John Hartman acts as vice president, again Rita Donneily
will take the notes, and George Puhl will be sergea-nt-at-arms.
March 20-The first report cards, with the inevitable result that many of the
seniors look crestfallen. Well, just being a senior doesn't assure you all
A's. Better luck next time.
April 1-Pictures taken at Trinity Court. 'Shall I wear my bllue dress, or do
you think the green is better?" uThis necktie should photograph well."
uWhat do you think of my profile?" '6Gosh, I am so nervous, I just know
they won't be good."
April 2-At last the cast for Growing Pains is announced. Virginia Wienand
and Frank Hanzel are cast as Mr. and Mrs. Mclntyre. Their children,
George and Terry, are otherwise known as Rita Donnelly and Ernest
Wuerthele. Every good play has a siren, and ours is Madeline Butler.
The twenty remaining members of the cast were chosen because of their
capable performances in O. E. cl
asses and Literary Society.
April 8-The Prom committee is chosen to decide when, where, and 'how we

May 22 and 27-Honor Roll Assembly. As a tribute to those people who halve

THERE is no need to introduce to you Chester Adams, the ideal Alleghenian.
Like all real men, Chester is silent about l1is great deeds. He walks hand
in hand with modesty. His character is the finest. He is frank, truthful, and
ever honest. As for his achievements, he not only has an admirable scholastic
record and a splendid mark in extra-curricular activities, but has proved him-
self a splendid athlete. Chesteris ability as a football, basketball, and baseball
player is outstanding. Since the Very first year Chester entered Allegheny, his
leadership has been apparent. He has led his reporting room through eight
semesters as president and has also achieved the honor of being class president
in both his senior A and B classes. Chester's unselfish spirit has wo11 him many
friends, his smile is infectious, his spirit indomitable, and his personality radiat-
ing. After four years in Allegheny, Chester has left a record which any uinder-
classmanshould be glad to achieve.
PRfESIDENT of his home room, president of Student Council, president of
- Literary Society, and chair-man of the steering committee of the Boys Col-
lege Club-these are the offices that capable Edwin Pfund holds. To find a
person carrying more responsibilities and filling worthily more offices, you
would have to go far. When Glick, as he is popularly known, accepted these
offices, he accepted them with a knowledge of the work and responsibility that
accompany them, and in the very conscientious, business-like, efficient manner
characteristic of him, executed every task. Eddy did not just jump into these
offices but slowly prepared for them in his undergraduate years. In both
IOA and IIA he won the presidency of his home room, in 12B he was chair-
man of the scholarship committee in Student Council. These extra-curricular
activities have been supplementary to high scholastic work, he is on the honor
roll of the graduating class.
CHARLES SPIEG-L, editor of the Wah Hoo, started his career at Latimer.
There l1is literary genius served Latimer Life. Upon arriving at Allegheny,
he continued his leadership. Charles ruled as President of 411 and Vice Presi-
dent of Ill. This chap goes in for studies in a great way. His name has graced
the highest honor roll consistently. He is an active member of the Boys Col-
lege Club. He is a poet, too. Every student in Allegheny enjoys reading his
original poetry and editorials. The fact that Charles is a student of three
languages, German, Latin, and English, shows his versatility. His translation
of Virgil's Aencid proves his literary success. Through his excellent acting in
Literary Society and hard work, Charles has become one of its most popular
members. We are wondering how Miss Scott will manage without her right-
hand man, who supervised the taking of pictures and the subscription contest
for the Wah Hoo. His stay at Allegheny was one of untiring work and un-
selfish service to his school and classmates.
CHARMING, intellectual, and unique is Virginia Hunt. For more than
three years, Allegheny has noticed and followed with a great deal of inter-
est and pleasure Virginia's work on the Wah Hoo. Every issue found at least
one story and one article in it written by her. Because of her ability and her
willingness to work, she was chosen co-editor of the Wah H00 this year. Vir-
ginia wrote the Wah Hoo skit Dapper Danis Revenge and played the part of
the heroine, Little Nell. In spite of her many activities, she has maintained a
high honor standing. Virginia is interested chiefly in journalism.
ALFRED BERCER is the young man who has been selected to deliver the
valedictory address for our graduation. It is only fitting and proper that
this signal honor goes to one who has established a high record in scholarship,
athletics, and extra-curricular activities. Since his entrance from Latimer,
where he was the only Highest Honor graduate of his class, Alfred Berger has
occupied a conspicuous and important part in Allegheny activities. In scholar-
ship Alfred has established a record that speaks for itself, having maintained
Highest Honor standing since 9B. His athletic prowess and skill are shown
by his membership in the school volleyball, swimming, and football teams,
and by his winning a letter in the latter two. During his senior year he be-
came a member of the Wah Hoo staff, and in his IZA semester became Sports
HAROLD IDE is a valuable member of the senior class. As president and
active member of Hi-Y he has won many friends. He has served the Wah
Hoo capably as a representative for a number of semesters, and as a member
of the senior play committee and cast he showed ability in judgment of plays
and in stage performance. A talented violinist, he won a position in the senior
orchestra. The senior class, recognizing his ability, elected him class treasurer.
In addition to his participation in these activities Harold maintained an Honor
ranking. He has been neither absent nor tardy since he entered Allegheny.
PEP, vim and vigor-these well blended-are Madeline Butler. Never gloomy,
always helpful, blue-eyed Madge deserves her popularity. Graceful in
dancing, expert inf basketball and volleyball, she has won many honors in ath-
letics. In stage performance, too, she excels. Perhaps her most distinguished
performance she gave as Prudence in the senior play. As the war wife and
widow, she reduced many in her audience to tears. Madge is a leader. She
has been president of her home room, assembly chairman of Student Council,
and a member of Girls Leaders for several semesters.
663411. SATIRE and wit" is best known to our students as Wah H00 literary
- editor. He is also president of the Shakespeare Climb. Not only has
he ably directed the study of theigreat dramatist but he has contributed gener-
ously as viola player in the orchestra. Edwin is unselfish, looking ever to the
welfare of others. He is an honor student with a friendly personality.
LATIMER sent Rita Donnelly as a sophomore. Since that time she has
steadily climbed from 'obscurity to prominence. ln her senior year Rita
has been president of her home room, secretary of Literary Society, and secre-
tary and an active member of Student Council. As Terry in the Senior Play,
she will always be remembered. She gave a delightful characterization. An-
other of Rita's many accomplishments is that she consistently maintains honor
ranking. With all these laurels is it any wonder she shines brilliantly as one
of our class stars?
VIRGINIA WIEN AN D
EVERYONE is acquainted with the splendid acting ability of Virginia Wien-
and. Virginia distinguished herself not only by her splendid performance
in the senior play as Mrs. Mclntyre, but by mainy performances in Literary
Society. She has a ine speaking voice. She is one of three chosen to make
speeches at a Rotary Club Luncheon. Virginia has won highest honor ranking.
She is well known and is liked by all the seniors. Popularity, charm, brilliaince,
and especially dependability-these are among her finest qualities. We can al-
ways find Virginia helping someone in some way. Nursing is her chosen voca-
tion. She is planning to study at the Bellevue Suburban Hospital.
THE freshmen's ideal, the sophomores, model, the juniors, envy, and the
seniors' pride. Everybody knows her, everybody likes her. Who? Why,
of course, Mary Sartorio. Her pleasing personality, cheerful disposition, and
her attractive appearance make her the center of every group. She is also
active in sports and enjoys nothing better than a good game of basketball or
volleyball. Her popularity gained her many offices. She is president of her
home room and secretary of 0.G.A. The 12A class honored her this semester
by electing her secretary. Her acting ability is among the best in our cllass.
Who will ever forget her as Elsie in the senior play. Although socially minded,
we suspect that she spends many hours on her school work. How else can
We account for the many A's her report cards show. Mary's contribution to
the 12A class has been great and able.
EMR'O QUASHNOCK possesses qualities of leadership that have made him
outstanding in all fields. As a scholar he excels, having a record of highest
honor. It does n-ot matter how difficult the problems in physics or mathe-
matics he finds the correct solution. Schollarship is not his only achievement.
His classmates have shown their faith in him by electing him president of 307,
and president of the Boys Leaders Club. Not only is he secretary of Radio
Club, but a licensed amateur operator. Interested in all types of athletics, he
plays all games well. ln gymnastics he has unusual ability. The financial
success of the senior play can be accredited to Emro,s work as financial manager.
GGHANDSOME Jack" or plain 6'Johnny',-so John Young is known to his
vast circle of friends. John is one of the persons who helped make the
illustrious graduating dlass what it is today. John is tall, has black curly hair
and dark twinkling eyes. uHandsome is as handsome doesf' And John does
handsomely, too. A good actor, he played the part of Omar in Growing Pains.
He has been president of his home room, his name has appeared often on the
honor roll. John hopes to attend George Williams College. As vice president
of Boys Leaders and Advertising manager of the Wah Hoo, he has advanced
the interests of both groups. John has been Mr. lVIiller's right hand man as
manager of the varsity team for two years and has been a mainstay on the
swimming and gym teams. J ohnny's great ambition is to be a successful teacher
of physical education.
WE have heard of the proverbial beauty who was quite dumb, but Helen
Gates destroys that adage completely. She is small of stature, and from
the tip of her toes to the top of her lovely, bronze wavy hair, she is neatness
personified. Her green eyes slant slightly upward, giving her face even in re-
pose the effect of smiling. The moment she entered Allegheny, Helen found
a prominent place in school activities and a permanent place in the hearts of
her friends. As a freshman, she was chosen president of her home room. She
held that position until her senior year. Actively interested in all types of
sports, the Girls Leaders Clulb chose Helen as their president this year. Her
ability as a commercial student Won her a place in the O.'G.A. clwb and a posi-
tion as typist for the Wah Hoo staff. As numerous as these activities are, Helen
has consistently been a Highest Honor student. A fine record for a fine girl.
UIET, studious, dependable, and always cheerful-so we may best describe
this tall blon-d senior from Room 203. As president of the Girls G0-To-
College Club, Virginia has efficiently wielded the gavel for two semesters. Her
ambition to continue her education is probably one reason for her high scholas-
tic standing. That she is a high honor student does not prevent her from doing
her share in contributing to the Wah Hoo. She is a member of the staff who
works steadfastly and diligently. Remember her humorous portrayal of the
heroine's mother in the Wah Hoo skit? She also presides over the lunch lines
and prevents hungry students from coming to injury before they come to their
lunch. Besides presiding, studying, Writing, and acting, she still finds time to
attend the inter-scholastic games. She is an ardent football and basketball fan.
Outside of sch-ool she is very active in the Co-ed Club. Virginia has made
many friends during her stay at Allegheny and in her senior year has been
indespensable in school and class activities.
NE of our strong silent men is Charles Christman. His most outstanding
characteristic is his ability on. the gym floor. A member of Boys Leaders
C1 b h 0 l n 1 J
u , e was chosen as their vice president last semester. During gym period
he acts as floor monitor. At Heinz House, where he has been a member for
seven years, he earned a senior life-saving ipin. During the fourth period he
can be fpund in the auditorium, where he plays the viola in the orchestra.
Despite the fact that he comes from the wilds of Mt. Troy every morning,
Chuck has a record of nine years of perfect attendance. Charles quite compe-
tently undertook the position of Business Manager on the Wah Hoo staff this
semester, and under his able direction the circulation of the magazine in-
creased beyond that of any previous year.
LL through her school life, Alice ,Iahn has been a leader. Her ability to
write won for her the position of Alumni Editor of the Wah Hoo. Her
articles are always interesting to read and reveal a great deal of hard work.
Because of her pleasing personality, she has held many offices during her three
years at Allegheny. She was elected secretary of Girls Leaders Club, vice
president and president of O.G.A., and Wfah Hoo representative. Alice is very
skillful in all commercial subjects. Her popularity is due chiefly to her cheer-
ful disposition and humor. Because of her diligent work, she is to be gradu-
ated with High Honor, having attained High Honor and Highest Honor many
times. Her ability reaches out into another field also. On the stage she is
superb. No one can forget her as Lady Macbeth or as Patty in the senior play.
On the gym floor, in the swimming pool, and on the tennis court, few can
surpass her. She has helped many teams to victory.
WEET and lovely are only two of the adjectives that might be used to de-
scribe Beatrice Wiltinan, the attractive president of Boosters Club. Her
pleasing personality has not only made her dear to her friends and classmates
but also a great asset to our class. As a star athlete, she is an active member
-of the Girls Leaders Club and Sarah Heinz House. She was ,lane in the Senior
Play and is an accomplished dancer. Despite all these extra activities she still
maintains an honor standing.
NE of the busiest, prettiest, and sweetest girls in our Senior Class is Alice.
Smiling brown eyes, Hashing dimples, plus a high honor standing in schol-
astlc attainments make her indispensable to her class. She is outstanding in
class activities being Programme Chairman of the O.G.A. Club, Vice President
of h ' h ' ' ' '
C1 ome room, Miss Scotts Secretaiy, a member of the Service Squad and
of the Wah Hoo Staff. Besides all her other activities she has time to com-
pete in all the athletic tournaments and her name is frequently listed with the
victorious team. She has always been an A student in the Commercial Depart-
ment, and how the underclassmen have marveled at her magic operation of
the typewriter. Although her time is well taken with other activities, Alice
is always willing to give her spare moments to helping others. Her generous
attitude and sweet disposition have won her a niche in Al'legheny's Hall of
THERE are groups of students in Allegheny who are always busy doing some-
ing but are seldom in the public eye. One of these groups is the stage
crew. They are responsible for keeping the stage neat. They supply the roar
of thunder, crash of lightning, and telephone bells for the plays in assembly.
At 3:05 dressed in trousers and sweaters twice their size, they are busily work-
ing on the scenery or lights. The typists, too, are indispensable to the success
of the school play. They readily answer S. 0. S. calls. They type programs
and cues, and mimeograph directions. The business managers and publicity
men have heavy responsibility with finances and news-releases. These groups
are a very real support to the cast.

T is with deep regret that we relinquish our hold upown the pen that has
traveled so many miles in the compilation owf the three issues of our Wah
Hoo. Nevertheless, we View with pride the accomplishments of the staff dur-
lng the past semester. First, the Wah H00 skit to encourage the sale of the
subscriptions with the result that the circulation for the first issue exceeded
that of any previous year-951. The theme decided upon for the three issues
was the modern inventions, radio, movies, and aviation. Attractive covers car-

STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE BODY
THE Student Representative Body, consisting of the thirty-nine presidents of
W reach report room, has had excellent team work. At its meetings the
problems of all the rooms and the school in general were discussed and solu-
tions sought. Each week a splendid program of interest and aid to the stu-
dents was furnished hy a chairman of one of the committees, and the presenta-
tions were of high quality. Other activities of the body included an assembly
program at which Edward O. Tabor was the speaker, and a scholarship pro-
gram for the honor, high honor, and highest honor students. Representatives
attended civic meetings provided by the League of Women Voters and by the
Administration. The officers were: Edwin Pfund, presidentg John Hartman,
vice presidentg Rita Donnelly, secretaryg and George Puhl, sergeant-at-arms.
S the name suggests, this club is not an organization for itself but for the
'L' - . .
interest of the school. lts purpose is to boost Allegheny in every Way
possible. Besides assisting in the lunch rooms, halls, and the library, the girls
undertook to inform the alumni about the Senior Play. As a semester project,
however, Boosters attempted to compile a history of Allegheny High. Although
this task will take several semesters to complete, the girls have laid a firm
foundation on which their successors may build. An Allegheny Alumni Wl10's
Who will be an interesting feature of the history. Material thus far has been.
collected from old Wah Hoos. Further information is to be obtained from
interviews with former Alleghenians. The Alumnae Banquet in Nlay is an
HIE Commercial Club may be just ancther club to other Allegheny students,
' but to the members it means friends, cooperation, action, and prepared-
ness for the future. No task is too difficult for a try, and each member is will-
ing to try. Every meeting is interesting. Max:-y subjects of the commercial
world are discussed. Manners, too, of great importance to all, come in for at-
tention. All in all, to the members, the club is a rung on the ladder of life.
Our officers arc: Adelaide Mooney, president, Beulah Kistner, vice president,
Ann Catalano, secretary, and ,lane Waznick, active program chairman. We
are proud of our organization, we members of the Commercial Club, and we
thank our sponsor, Miss Cooley, for her patience and kindness towards us.
THIS semester the Senior Hi-Y has had an interesting time. They sponsored
the M. U. F. and had the honor and pleasure of introducing the Rev. Dr.
Bernard Clausen, well known speaker in Western Pennsylvania. They also
sponsored a program for Dr. Lang who gave a talk on the Five-Point Star.
The clwb has joined the National Hi-Y clubs of the country. They enjoyed
several fine swims at the Y. M. C. A. in the fifth periods. May 15 the club
sponsored a successful swimming party at the Y. M. C. A. They have had
several ushering jobs and will usher for the commencement. The officers are
Harold Ide, presidentg Richard Robinson, vice presidentg and Arthur Zeigler.,
secretary and treasurer.
TENTH GRADE DRAMA

TENTH GRADE DRAMA CLUB
THE Tenth Grade Drama Club developed the acting ability of the Allegheny
sophomores. We presented two plays in chapel, Station YYY and Relax.
Both were well received. The cast of Station YYY included: Dorothy Baine,
Doris Koch, Dorothy Smith, Richard Smith, Douglas Webb, and Robert Wel-
day, and that of Relax included: Mary Alice Allendorf, Fay Anderson, Francis
Cook, Pearl De Moss, Katherine Fazio, Kathryn McNamara, Fanny Merlina,
Mary Miller, Mary Agnes O'Laughlin and Kathryn Sanfilippo. A club party
drew the curtain on a most successful semester.
THE Allegheny High School band is composed of boys from all grades in
Allegheny. At the beginning of the semester, one ambition of the boys
was to make a position in the football band. From the fifty-'five members of
the band, thirty-two boys were selected. 'ln uniform Tuesd.ays and Thursdays
we drilled and made letter formations. The band filled engagements for
parades, an unemployment entertainment, Washington celebration, and enter-
tained members of the North Side Y. M. C. A. The annual spring concert
meant much practice at school, after school classes, and at home. The mem-
bers showed a keen interest in selecting the musical numbers of the program.
They were, Tannhauser March by Wagner, Grand Festival Overture by Reissiger,
and H. M. S. Pinafore by Sullivan, The Partners by Cramer, and the Soldiers
Chorus from Faust by Gounod. For publicity we presented in assembly just
enough of our program to create an eagerness for more. Thursday, May 23,
the boys in white uniforms played as professionals for their seven hundred
guests. W. Howard Keister is director of the band.
THE Chef Club is very young, having been organized only three semesters.
The boys have been doing very well under the supervision of Miss Cole.
The purpose of the club is not merely to teach boys to cook but to do other
things around the kitchen. For instance, one week We are given a recipe, and
the next week we cook, and in between. time we have to prepare a menu for
a company dinner. We are also taught the art of scrubbing tables, washing
and drying dishes, pots and pans. From this write-up you would probably
think that the Chef Club is all work and no play. Well, you are mistaken.
We have occasional programs and many a laugh during, club period. Every
boy in the cluab is well satisfied and hopes that the Chef Club will continue for
many semesters after he has left Allegheny.

WAH H00 REPRESENTATIVES
HE success of any Wah Hoo depends to a large extent on the Wah Hoo
Representatives. We have been very fortunate this semester in having the
above group to work with the staff in selling the Wah Hoo. Their work is
very difficult, yet in spite of economic stress they have come through in splendid
fashion. H These students have given their time and effort unsellishly and have
earned the whole-hea1'ted thanks of the entire student body. More Valuable
than gratitude, however, is the training and experience they have received dur-
ing the past semester. The work they have done has helped to prepare them
for entrance into the business World. We appreciate their services to the school,
and we give our sincere thanks for their aid. Best wishes to them for con-
BOYS LEADERS CLUB
LEADERSHIP and cooperation are the theme of the club. This year has
marked a high point in efficiencyg the members have been helping Mr.
Miller run off the efficiency test in a highly systematic manner. They spon-
sored the Intra-mural volleyball matches and have helped in any possible way
any other school activities. The members of this organization are not only
leaders on the gym iloor but also in scholastic standing anrd other activities of
the school. For our annual camping trip the club chose Milton Lake, Ohio.
The officers for the semester were: Emro Quzlshnock, presidentg John Young,
' ' N 1
vice presidentg Patrick Louvrls, secretaryg Arthur Brant, treasurer. e son
T. Miller sponsored the club.
THE orchestra of 'Allegheny High School has an enrollment of forty-eight
me111bers. At the beginning of the semester a string ensemble, consisting
of two violins, a viola, and cello, was formed. There was also a woodwind
quintet composed of two clarinets, an oboe, a flute, and a bassoon. Two trom-
bones and two trumpets comprised the brass quartet. These groups helped
to supply the musical entertainment for the Literary Society. The orchestra
of Allegheny was engaged for many outside performances such as afternoon
teas, welfare programs, and a radio broadcast over KQKA from the Community
House of the North Side. The orchestra also took a prominent part in the
assemblies. We enjoyed helping to make the Senior Play professional. The
graduations of the night school and day school were accompanied by the or-
chestra. The annual spring concert included these selections: Ruy Blas Over-
ture by Mendelssohn, Schubert's Unfinished Symphony, Scenes Pittoresques by
Masseenet, and The March of the Bajaren by Halvorsen. The attentive listeners
greatly applauded the unexcelled high school orchestra. A11 of the work ac-
complished was under the supervision of W. Howard Kiester, our director.
THE Marconi Radio Club has really accomplished the purpose for which it
was established. Evidence of this is that the club has turned out three
licensed amateur operators: Andrew Puel KWSJAWJ, Paul Korneke QW8NEXl,
and Emro Quashnock QWSNUTJ. The club is main-ly interested in the short
waves. The members have been taught the International Morse Code. We
look forward to seeing many more amateurs produced by the club. Weekly
discussions include a study of the theory of radio and its practical applications.
The clwb is now planning to install a transmitter, which, as all amateur stations
are, will be used for experimental purposes. The club officers are: president,
Andrew Puelg vice president, Paul Kornekeg secretary, Emro Quashnockg
treasurer, John Mazur. Mr. Sterrett is our sponsor.
THE program for the Naturalist Club for this semester has been interesting
as well as varied. There were three leading projects, around which all
other plans centered. The first project was a trip to the Carnegie Museum
and the second a trip to the Allegheny Conservatory. Before and after these
visits the meetings were spent in studying specimens of plants and animals.
The Club is indebted to the Museum for the specimens of animals. The third
projecvt consisted of a contest to determine to what extent the members had
learned to recognize plants and animals. In preparation for this contest each
week a portion of the meeting was devoted to learning live forms of life. To
end-well there is no end, for each member will continue the work he has be-
gun as a menrber of the Naturalist Club.
SENIOR LITERARY SOCIETY
SENIOR LITERARY SOCIETY
RIDAY, the fifth period, is a popular hour with the Seniors. Each Friday
F this semester two hundred seniors have met in Literary Society to develop
their histrionic ability and to present poems, pantomimes, monologues and
plays. Who will ever forget the super-excellent acting of Frank Hanzel and
Madeline Butler in The Enemy or Harry Heck's interpretation of Casey
at the Bat or Virginia Wienand as Lady Macbeth, or the enlightening and
amusing items of Edwin Brennen's journals. Under the leadership of the
officers Edwin Pfund, presidentg Lawrence McAndrews, vice presidentg and
Rita Donnelly, secretaryg this organization gave programs for several assemblies,
presented a drama at the School for the Blind, and broadcasted from Station
THE purpose of the Shakespeare Club is to make its members better ac-
quainted with the works of Willi'am Shakespeare. This semester we have
enjoyed two plays, Midsummer Night's Dream and Anthony and Cleopatra.
Each member of the club has the opportunity to read the part of a character
in the play. The meeting every Tuesday is very informal. The clwb has cer-
tainly achieved its purpose in making its members more familiar with the
works of that greatest dramatist of all times, William Shakespeare.
11B DRAMA CLUB
THE IIB Drama Club has had a very successful semester under the sponsor-
ship of Miss Cowley. We have devoted the entire semester to finding and
developing the talent in the eleventh grade. For the first few club meetings,
we had original pantomimes and short skits given by different members of the
clubg these proved amusing as well as beneficial. Among the plays given
were: Rolls and Salt, The Fatal Necklace, Millie and Tillie Arrive in New
York, Tickets Please, and A Fowl Play. We were entertained by a visit from
several members of the Tenth Grade Drama Club, who presented A Movie
Offer and The Christmas Dance. A play in chapel completed our semester's

ester a play entitled, The D0ttedPLine was given by the officers, reports from
the Tri-State Convention were given by those memlbers who had attended, and
the club visited Remington Rand. Two periods were devoted to students find-
ing shorthand difficult. Much of the club time has been spent in learning
court phrases and taking court dictation. The club has -had its social times,
too. A tea at the home of our sponsor, Miss Wylie, a trip to VVJAS-KQV
studios, and a picnic all added to the fun of O.G.A. members. The purpose
of the club is to prepare the student for conditions he will find in the business
world, and to develop efficient typists and transcribers.
NINTH GRADE DRAMA
'6Do you belong to a Drama Club?"
uYes, the Ninth Grade."
MOh, just the Ninth Gradeli'
SUCH remarks are often heard. We ninth graders are always thought of as
just kids, but we feel that we have formed a real club, with the help of
sponsor, Miss Braham. The chief aim of the club is to prepare ourselves to
fit into higher drama clubs. This semester we have had plays, pantomimes,
monologues, and other entertainments which have been very interesting. Our
object is not just to provide entertainment but learn to play many varieties
of characters. Another aim of our club is to learn to take responsibilities.
We have organized various committees, each one of which is responsible for a
certain amount of work for the club. We have learned that individual re-
sponsibility and cooperation are needed to make a Drama Club a success.
ALLEGHENY STAMP CLUB
A LTI-TOUGH the Stamp Club is new in Allegheny, it is one of the popular
fl chrbs. Much has been done to expand the knowledge of stamps. At every
meeting at least four reports on stamps were given by the members. The club
worked this semester on a most unusual project. A map of South America was
framed, and around the map stamps of South American countries were mounted.
The stamps were contributed by members of the club. During the clubfs exist-
ence this .semester we have enjoyed seeing a 35,000 collection, shown to us by
Mr. Daul. The Stamp Club has stimulated stamp collection in the school.
The club officers are: president, Paul Korneke, vice president, Louis Gold,
secretary, Margaret Olscheskeg treasurer, Alexander Vellis.

' corner. In the Church, seated near friends, we waited for the bell of
Bebe Wise, our president. Betty Walker read the devotions and Margaret
Walker, tl1e minutes. Our programs of speeches, club talent, songs, and
games were arranged by lVIargaret Olscheske and her committee. Our Cere-
monial, of a religious character, cared for initiation of new members. The
income this semester resulted from the selling of Easter Eggs by Theora
Thompson, a volleyball game with Girls Leaders arranged by Helen Mateusiak,
and the collection of dues by Christina Manesictis. Outside activities were
hikes, Christmas dolls, Foreign clubs, teas and picnics, managed by Margaret
The purpose of our club is:
"To develop noble character, to promote social friendliness throughout
the school, to be of service to humanity, to follow the Divine Word, and to
give at all times our best."
NJUST A BIT O'FUN CLUB"
66 UST a bit O'Fun" is a junior literary club. This club, organized this
semester, is s onsored b Mr. L. Hole and has as its ur ose, besides
P Y P P
creating fun, the introduction of its members to better books, plays, and motion
pictures. The different members try to see the latest plays and 111otion pictures
and read the newer books and plays and then, give oral reports on them. Be-
sides these literary reports we have musical and dramatic programs which have
been very successful. We are very eager to have this club continued as we feel
that the students 'need to be educated in the matter of good plays, books, and
ON WITH THE SHOW!
EACH week, uThe meeting will please come to order," called brunette Marie
Schultz, president of the lIA Drama Club. Secretary Chester Bearrow
read the minutes. Old and new business, heated discussions, made for lively
utstanding Clark Gables were Chester Bearrow, Carroll'
Hake, Poole Bashaw, Kenneth Hohyans, Edward Ackerman and Albert Marky.
Our Claudette Colberts, Norma Shearers and Kathryn Hepburns included Rec

E Plasterites Qnot parasitesj meet in 211 every fifth period Monday. Per-
: haps you are wondering why we are called such names. It so happens
that we use Plaster-of-Paris for the construction of small models. All of our
houses are designed and made to scale by our future architects. Plaster flows
continually into the moulds during our session. Some one is always telling
William Cox, our secretary-treasurer, to buy more plaster. All materials are
bought from a small fund created by cluib dues. This semester our treasury
will be doubly taxed. Two extraordinary Wiener roasts are being held at the
Hickory Club farm. A two dollar prize will go to the designer of the model
that is most neatly built, decorated, and landscaped. Alfred Berger 13 our
president, William Diana, our vice president, Harold Wausat is our publicity
manager. The club owes all of its success to Mr. Medlock, our sponsor, who
taught us how to make these plaster models.
ART CLUB v
THIS semester the Art Club has been at work consistently.- I The club chose
as its theme, Boosting Pennsylvania. Posters were drawn to illustrate the
many beautiful sites of Pennsylvania. The very best of these were entered in
a contest at Penn State. Members of the Art Club supplied the scenic work
for the semester play. The banners that were awarded the various report
rooms for Wah Hoo subscriptions were also contributed by these art students.
Among the members are those who design the covers for the Wfah Hoo and
create the funny cartoons. They have been working on the seal as an insignia
for awards for the Athletic Council of the North Side. The business meetings
provide practice in parliamentary proceedings. Vincent Bartolmayo, vice presi-
dent of our Art Club is the winner of the Federal Housing Administration
Poster Contest. The prize was a trip to Washiiigton, D. C.
IN the Federal Housing Contest, among 1350 entries, Vincent Bartolmayo,
' vice president of the Art Club won first prize with his poster MRepair Noww.
He was awarded a trip to Washingtoii. ln the North Side Athletic Seal Con-
test, Willialn Canyock, Wah H00 cartoonist, won the lirst prize, fifteen dollars.
His seal will be used for all athletic awards. Second prize, ten dollars was
Won by William Diana, president of the Art Club and Wah Hoo artist. 'Other
persons from Allegheny who won prizes were Sidney Navratil, Dolores Kimbel,
Eugene Burgoyne, Louise Duibsky, Florence Richey, Vincent Nigrelli, a11d Mary
THE Aviation Club spent the past semester, its third one in Allegheny, com-
pleting its organization program. The program included the formation
of the members into Junior Birdmen and Junior Aviator Squadrons. The boys
gained much practical knowledge of Aviation through debates, inspection tours
of the local airports, and model designing .and building. Besides holding their
own contests, the members competed in three national model contests. Many
students profited by the talks gi-Ven them by club sponsored aviators. The
club, through its .lunior Birdmen and Aviator contacts, has outlined a program
of projects designed to make Allegheny foremost in aviation circles. The pro-
gram included talks by prominent fliers, demonstration of gas-powered models,
contests, and aviation displays. A display in June included models, photos,
maps, and other interesting data. The members of the Aviation Club are
rapidly leading Alleghenians into America,s latest and fastest-growing industry
GIRLS LEADERS CLUB
ONE of the well known clubs of Allegheny is Girls Leaders Club. Outstand-
ing it is, perhaps, because o-f the excellent work which these girls do. They
help the athletic instructors with classes. They also referee and coach under-
classmen in tennis, basketball, and volleyball. Girl Leaders are girls who rank
well in their scholastic standing, and who also excel in athletics. This club
has a pleasant social life. An annual initiation, a Senior Play Dance, and a
week-end camping trip are its chief features. These members work hard and
are deserving of the name Leaders.
N December thirteenth, Alleghenyms Girls Leaders Club took part in the
0 annual party in which the leaders of Section II entertained the Section I
leaders. Lan'gley's leaders staged a play and each club present sang its club
song, and then a dinner was served in the gym. Then the girils danced, and
danced, and danced. Naturally everyone had a line time.
THE National Physical Education Convention was held in Pittsburgh, April
24-27. The Girls Leaders Club gave a demonstration as did all the other
city Leaders clubs. The meeting was held at the William Penn Hotel. Our
girls looked very attractive in their new yellow suits.
RESUME OF GIRLS ATHLETICS
THE new type of basketball turned out to be very successful. All the teams
' participating in the tournament put on fine exhibitions of an excellent
game. Smallwtood's team copped the twelfth grade championship, but it was a
hard fight for all concerned. Campbell, Williams, and Waugaman won the
eleventh, tenth, and ninth grade championships respectively.
It so happens that the leaders in basketball served in the same capacity
in volleyball. The games were a little less exciting than basketball but never-1
theless they were interesting. The champs were Kelso, Hosey, Campbell, and
With the spring comes tennis. The girls are all eagerly awaiting the call
to sign up for this renowned recreation. lncidentally, the tournament only

BOYS GO-T0-COLLEGE CLUB
THAT the Boys College Club is a comparatively new organization in Alle-
gheny is shown by m3l,', the founding date, on the cluh emblem. The
heart shaped emblem represents the brotherly heart by which the members
are pledged to help each other. The major interests of the club are a study
of the various colleges, their admission requirements, and means of securing
scholarships. The scholastic standing of the club is very high, always an aver-
age of honor, and sometimes high honor. Representatives from local colleges
have addressed the clwb. Programs on Indian lore and Held days educate the
members in love with the out-of-doors. The members represent every out-
standing activity, are pledged to iight for the honor and good name of Alle-
gheny High, and practice the good fellowship and the ideals taught by the

SNIFF 'N SNOOP
AST thou yet heard the seniors, theme song? It goes like tl1is: Oh we're
heading for our last round up. But before we go let's make this moment
sweet agai11. Of all the contraptions that ever found parking space in front
of dear old Allegheny, Jim Born's thing-a-mijigger takes the cake. How many
brands are represented in that can, jim? You may or may not believe the
following: Jimmie told Degenhart he was going to dispose of his leaping Lena
because the gas gauge isn't accurate. His statement was that when the gauge
registered one half he couldn't tell whether it was half full or half empty.-
The other day while Marian Samuel was practicing on the piano an officer
came up to the door and told Marian that he was informed that a fellow by
the name of Mozart was being murdered. fWell what's the difference he has
been killed many times before.7-Sometimes we can't help getting the impres-
sion that the big idea is to have the armament and the lllllllall races end simul-
taneously. May the best man win.-Art Norkus has been heard telling the girls
what an easy school Allegheny is. 'GWl1y", says Art, NI can do anything I
want to in that school, I get here any time before 8:45 and leave once in a
while before four o'clock. Al Schimmel may not 'be Scotch but I w-onder why
he took the telescope to the top of the Cathedral of Learning. My hunch is
that he was looking for a free ball game.-Wionder whether Allegheny will
survive without us. fI mean how did it manage to survive with us.j-Here's
a problem that Einstein can't even answer: If I had three apples, two of which
contained a worm each and one containing two wormsg and if I gave you two
apples how many worms would I have left? Uust a little tip-the one worm
was twice as long as either of the other tw'o.J-Miss Cornelius had to give Cher-
mock an A on his Hnal theme. After all what does an English teacher know
about the effects of 'latitude on the coloration cf Lepidoptra? fLet it go as
butterfliesj The seniors were asked to put down their names exactly as the
wanted it 011 their diplomas: Harold Ledrick put down No. 13999.-Doesn't
.lfoe Setler remind you of cheap coffee-he's a little weak in the bean.-
Charles Christman told me that his uncle possessed untold wealth. '6Yes",
said Christman, 'che didnft tell in his income tax report." That's all right

ZXLLEGHENYWS chances for having a championship team this semester are
L great. So far, it has lost only two games. Our team inaugurated its sea-
son by trouncing Wilkitnsburg. In a heated contest with the Alumni our team
was again successful. In an exhibition game with Langley, Allegheny tied
score with their opponents. Our team received its first set back from the Silver
Lakers, Westinghouse. While our boys were in a slump, Peabody gave Alle-
gheny its second defeat. Recovering from the shock, Allegheny racked Schen-
ley. Our winning streak continued. South Hills fell to Allegheny in a non-
league contest. When Allegheny met Peabody in its second game, the tables
were turnedg our boys gave Peabody a good trouncing. The team avenged its
second defeat by trouncing Westinghouse. Tfhe Allegheny-Schenley tilt ended
by a score of Allegheny ll-Schenley 3. Ovnly two more games remain to be
playedg these will decide the section champs.
If our city has an All-Scholastic baseball team this year, Allegheny should
place several of her players on that team. O,Nei'l is our iron mang he certainly
can twirl the ball. Our infield., composed of Adams, Verbanets, Stott, and
Burtnett, is almost perfect. Ken Luther plays a brainy game of ball behind
the plate. Our Helders-Hurlburt, Duffy, and Wright deserve great credit, too.
Any olne on Coach Springer's team would be a good candidate for the All-
Scholastic. Our Coach has turned out a wonderful team this year. He de-
serves congratulations for his good work.

. HAIL TO THE CHAMPS
ONE of the most popular events in Allegheny this semester, was the Boys
Intra-Mural Volleyball Tournament. This contest was sponsored by the
Boys Leaders Club, sponsored by Coach Nelson T. Miller. After a heated con-
test room 307 succeeded in winning the tournament. Twenty-six home rooms
entered the contest, each team was composed of six men. The various teams
were matched by drawing lots. Thirty-two matches were played. After a
team was defeated, it dropped into the losers' bracket. The final match was
played between tl1e winners of the two brackets.
307 won two games in the winners? bracket. Then 111, their strongest
opponents, S6111 307 down into the losers' bracket. After winning five straight
games, 307 managed to come to the top-the winners of the losers, bracket.
The crisis came on May 14, when 111 met 307 in the play-off. Five games
we1'e played, i11 which 307 won four games by the following scores: 15-6, 15-10,
15-4, and 15-12.

TAIQE your marks! Get set! Bang!
The crack of the pistol sets off a11 Allegheny swimmer to win for his Alma
Mater. Our team had an exceptionally fine season this year, when one con-
siders Allegheny's greatest handicap-the lack of a pool. Through the courtesy
of the Y. M. C. A., we were able to have a team. Our boys practiced there
every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoon.
Unfortunately, our city didn't have a Championship Meet. Lack of money
to supply medals was the chief reason for discontinuing the championships.
Well, our boys wonft raise a disturbance, for last year Allegheny High didn,t
have a swimming team. Not a single pool on the North Side was then available
for practice. However, an Inter-scholastic Swimming Meet under the auspices
of the University of Pittsburgh brought our swimming season to an end. Alle-
gheny didn't fare so well against so many well practiced teams from four
states. But our record is hard to beat. Allegheny won three of her four official
meets by the following scores:
Allegheny 47 - - - Connelley 17

ADVENTURES OF A HALL WALKER THROUGHER
I SIT in my seat i11 a coma, for maybe it was the fourth pcriodj while the
teacher delivers a lecture on some Chinaman-it was either Confusion or
Yellow Iaundice. Then suddenly like a bolt out of the Vermillion there comes
the honk of a bell. I dash out of my seat, crawl under a few desks, tear across
the room and climb over the anatomys of fellow bell waiter forers fits my
turn on the bottom tomorrowi. I almost get out into the clear, but I trip
over a Kiddie Kar that some one left in the hall, but luckily I save myselffrom
such asparagusting fate. Alas I have not reached my goal for just then I am
koncked on the head with a left handed monkey wrench dropped from the
balcony. It doesn't hit me squareg I am just a "bit tetched on the head".
Saved but not long, for what do I see but Pat lVIcAndrews' Ford coming down
the stepsg there is no escape this time. The rat trap hits me head on fwhat
do I care if he wants to ruin his Fordj. Then I get tossed 32 ft. 6M inches into
the atmosphere but being nonchalant fno, I doIn't smoke lVIuradsI I grab a
chandelier fine Tarzani. There I am the ceiling above me death belowg am
I perturbed uno" fah my stoogej but I pull out my trusty sky hook and slide
down to good old Vice Versa. After many hardships I reached the ticket ma-
chine before anyone else Iivictoryj. Vifoe is meg just then I remembered I had
brought my lunch that day.

THE VVISDOM OF KING SOLOMON XIII
T so happened that in the days of our graduation, fwhich for our conveni-
ence is I935 B.C.i, there ruled in the land of Bologna, a king by the name
of Solomon. A king who was exceedingly wise. In fact this king was so wise
that he boasted an I.Q. of 239 fin the shadei.
Now it was customary in that day to believe in soothsayers and fortune
tellersg It was held wisely to taketh ones problems to Solomon, fwho gazed
lntro the crystal ball and never gave the right HHSW6I'.j
And lo, in the days of 'Solomon was erected a temple known as Allegheny
High School fit's a pretty old buildingi. It was from this temple that many
brilliant scholars were sent into the world. These scholars were second in
wisdom, only to Solomon. It was, in that day, deemed necessary for these
shholars to seek out Solomon for the answering of their many problems. And
it came to pass that a sophisticated senior madeth himself visible to the eyes
of Solomon and asketh of him saying: uOh mighty king canst thou but fgazei
in thy crystal and reveal unto me which girl I shall taketh unto our Prom?"
Whereupo'11 the learned monarch went into a violent trance and revealed the
following: 64011 thou unworthy son -of a goat's beardi' sayeth Solomon. athou
shalt taketh to thy Prom the blond, the short girl with the freckles and the
big feet: thou must leave for me the girl of exquisite charms for she shall be mv
fortunate fran." And lo. a dejected senior was from that dav on observed in
the halls of Allegheny, in a loathsome and melancholy mood.
Now being that Solomon was errually at home in discussing the mast. ores-
ent. or futureg there cameth unto him another senior, who had only recently
discovered that he had taken himself unto too many movies on comoanv time.
"Oh gracious king", sayeth he unto Solomon. unow am I aware of the fact
that my grades will be of an inferior rankg tellest thou me shall I graduate
with such a learned class as shall soon depart from these stately portals. or
must I be content to be thrown among the swine of a 'notorious bunch of 'numb-
skwlls?" And lo unto this unscholarly nupil did Solomon sav: uOh thou de-
i-nted creature. according to mv Ouiia Board the can't use the crystal twicei.
thou art doomed to the fate of all lnafers-thou must cast thv lot amongst the
vounger brethren and maketh thyself a burden unto themg better would thou
be to quaff of the hemlock cup and rid the world of thy incumbrance.
It was with such wisdom that Solomon did rule for nigh onto three score
and five years. But the day of Solomon's worldly termination did come and
the world was deprived of his unwanted wisdom.
We talce this opportunity to thanlc the members
ot the June, l935 graduating class ot Allegheny
I-Iigh School tor selecting us to illustrate the WAH
I-IOO with their portraits.
We trust they will have as much pleasure in
possessing our portraits as we had in their malcing,
and wish tor all the class, and also those who tollow,
success beyond their most ardent desires.
