A School Year
REFLECTED IN THE LIGHT
In throwing the spotlight
on Altoona High School, we
have tried to keep a proper
balance and proportion, a pol-
ished lens and a clear beam.
We hope that through these
pages each student may en-
joy a true portrayal of his
school days, and our many
friends gain a better under-
standing of our varied school

Extends Best Wishes
portunities to put into practice and
everyday life those things which you
have learned in the classroom-clear

HARRY L. KRINER
Advises the Class of 1943
I congratulate each one of you in
reaching the spotlight of graduation
in the Altoona High School. Since
you have attained this first big ob-
jective in your life, you now need to
take an inventory of yourself while
under the light.
Whether you continue the life of
a student, enter a trade, or start in
business, you will need to remember
that you are now a builder of what
We hope will be a better America.
Your public school education should
have developed within you a faith in
yourself, a respect for your parents.
a love for your neighbors, a fear of
God, and a loyalty to your country.
Turn the spotlight of truth on
yourself and see Where you need im-
provement to meet those standards
established by a grateful people who
made this education and graduation
possible. I sincerely trust that each
of you may become busily engaged
in the moral, spiritual, social, eco-
nomic, and political development of
Youth-A Great Constructive Force
Youth represents the most con-
structive force in society. Upon
youth and their response to the fu-
ture depends the preservation of our
ideals of living. They are the citizens
of tomorrow. ,
The Altoona High School and
every other high school throughout
our nation is in the spotlight, for it
is our solemn responsibility to help
our youth prepare for the place they
rightfully will assume in the home
and in the community.
Our high school is dedicated to
this task, and we are constantly seek-
ing better educational techniques,
better patterns of educational expe-
rience that will prepare our students
more effectively for the problems of
Our staff is well trained to assist
our students in the maturing of per-
sonality through a carefully con-
trolled educational experience.
We trust the Altoona High School
has succeeded in making a deep and
lasting impression upon each and
every member of this splendid class.

The Spotlight-On Student and Alumnus
The spotlight of our community is
on the Altoona High School but its
beam is focused on every individual
connected with our school--on stu-
dent and alumnus alike. It is on the
efforts and actions of each of us.
Through these efforts and actions
the reputation of our school is made.
The light from the spotlight is never
directly on the school. The school is
lighted by the reflection of the spot-
light from each of our lives. Only as
We have learned to live worthy lives
can the Altoona High School be prop-
The Class of 1948 has reflected
much light on the school. May your
future labors continue to make the
Altoona High School stand out
among all schools as an example of
all that is tinest and best in education.

did not necessarily look forward to
service in the armed forcesg girls
found no shortage of escorts for so-

in homes and schools.
The first Senior Class meeting fea-

ROLLING ALONG TO GRADUATION DAY
The "forty-niners," this year's
Junior Class, held their place in the
spotlight in all school activities.
Their first class meeting of the
year was held on October 28 to in-
stall newly elected officers. The re-
tiring president introduced the head
faculty sponsor, who, in turn, intro-
duced the new officers. Entertain-
ment was furnished by the high
school dance band, which played se-
lections of popular music, and by
Junior members of the a cappella
The second meeting, on March 23,
was held to prepare for the annual
Junior dance. In addition to the reg-
ular business, a musical revue, fea-
turing songs popular during the elev-
en years the juniors had attended
school, was presented by talented
members of the class.
The Spring Dance, sponsored by
the Junior class, was enjoyed by
everyone who attended it. Held in
the study hall, on April 2, it was
brightened by special features such
as a square dance, the congo line,
and a tag dance. Music was furnished
by a juke box.
The energetic juniors were active
in all phases of school life. The class
was well represented in varsity and
junior varsity sports and its mem-
bers were among the most ardent
supporters of the athletic program.
Selected members took examinations
sponsored by Drexel Institute to test
their general knowledge. Juniors also
won recognition in a cappella choir,
choruses, dramatics, band, and or-
OFF TO A GOOD START-KEEP GOING
The Class of 1950 had an excep-
tional opportunity to become ac-
quainted with Altoona High. At their
Hrst meeting a skit introducing school
administrators and giving the loca-
tion of their offices was presented.
In this dramatization, puzzled soph-
omores were shown entering differ-
ent school offices. Each administra-
tor told the visitors something of the
service he gave to the school. This
play gave the sophomores a great
amount of needed information. The
class sponsors were also introduced.
In their own home rooms, they
elected class officers and senate rep-
One of the finest activities of the
year was the three-day program for
parents of sophomores. During these
three typical school days, the parents
saw the school and pupils in the reg-
ular daily routineg they ate lunch at
a special period set aside for them.
After enjoying an excellent program
in the auditorium, the parents met
their children, who escorted them to
the class rooms to meet the teachers.
The initial dance of the sopho-
mores, held on January 9, was called
the "Sno-Ball." With the help of
clever advertising over the public
address, the dance was a success.

Morse Coaches Adams, Bashore,
Connacher Off for Short Gain
Season for the Mountain Lions
An injury-riddled lineup, plus lack
of experienced material, cost us some
early season victories, but the coaches
were pleased with the way the team
played under these conditions. Al-
though the Lions were slow in get-
ting started, they came on to Iinish
in great style.
Peabody 7-Altoona 6. Altoona
received the kickoff, but was forced
to punt on fourth down. From this
point, Peabody put on a drive of 63
yards, climaxed by Pa1umbo's pass-
ing to Keen for the touchdown. An-
other pass was good for the extra
Raber, running his team from the
modified T and the power-laden sin-
gle wing, scored in the last period,
but he fumbled when trying to dup-
licate this play for the extra point.
Altoona 0 - Westinghouse 0. The
Lions gained plenty of yardage, but
the Electricians always held when
AHS threatened. The nearest to a
touchdown Altoona got was to the
one-yard line, where Raber fumbled
and Westinghouse recovered.
New Castle 28 - Altoona 12. Grib-
ble, New Cast1e's triple-threat back,
passed and ran 25 of their 28 points.

The first Jay Vee game of the sea-
son saw thirty-four eager Altoona
High Junior Varsity football players
win a smashing victory over Orbi-
sonia. The score was 47-0. It was
an "away" game.
The "B" team then traveled to
Bellwood for a disappointing 13-12
score in favor of Bellwoodg the oppo-
nents completed fourteen out of
twenty-one passes. Both teams made
touchdowns in the second quarter,
but our boys did not make the extra
point-a failure which cost them the
Johnstown left Altoona, on Octo-
ber 17, with a 6-0 victory over the
Lions. It was an exciting game, with
no score until the fourth quarter. The
boys played a tough game. However,
the next game was a 20-6 victory for
gr-Jiiglrolltown on the Mansion Park
Then the red-clad footballers from
Beaverdale came to Mansion Park
to take home a. victory of 18-12. The
game was a see-saw affair until the
last three minutes of the second
quarter when Beaverdale scored the
tirst touchdown of the game. But, a
minute later, the Little Lions tied up
the game with a touchdowng the
score was 6-6 at the half. However,
in the third quarter, Beaverdale
scored two more touchdowns and
Altoona scored one.
The Jay Vee boys finished the sea-
son with a 19-0 victory over Mahaf-
fey, with plenty of replacements. A
good way to end the season!
With the coaching of Hugh Black
and Cyril Ramsey, many of the "B"
team members become excellent Var-

District 6 title.
The Lion Cagers opened a long,
tough season with a 54-24 win over
Bellefonte. The first and last baskets

However, the Mountaineers got a
taste of defeat when they lost to Mc-
Keesport by a score of 33-27. The
Lions blew their chances by making
poor outside shots.

jans of Mount Union, 45-29. Wiberg

not hold against their strong op-

a victory streak of five games before
they were bumped off by Altoona.

Page N inety-.seven
Here's a rousing cheer for the
Cheerleaders of A. H. S.! It takes a
lot of effort to get an enthusiastic
response at pep meetings and foot-
ball and basketball games. This year
the boys did an exceptionally line job,
and their untiring efforts were surely
an important factor in the success of
our athletic games. Mr. Wood also
deserves a compliment on his fine
work as sponsor of these boys,
The Athletic program in Altoona
High School is under the supervision
of the Athletic Council. This group
is composed of the President of the
Board of Directors, the Superinten-

Each year the boys in Altoona
High who desire athletic activities
but do not have the time or cannot
meet the requirements for participa-
tion in varsity sports are given an
opportunity through the intramural
program. A great many of the boys
who do not take part in varsity
sports are very active in the intra-
Touch football, track, foul shoot-
ing, and basketball, which make up
the intramural sports program, are
supervised by Paul Morse.
After school hours the boys go to
the gymnasium where they take part
in the various intramural events. A1-
though these sports receive little
publicity, many of the boys work
very hard to make them successful.
There has been developed a keen
sense of competition between the
home rooms in intramural contests.
Interest and Action
In Varied Program
Such sports develop coordination and
alertness in the active participants.
The winning home rooms are
awarded banners in recognition of
their high achievement. The home
rooms retain these banners until the
following year when the contestants
again try for the championship and
the coveted banner.
Touch football is the first event in
the schedule of sports. The team is
made up of seven players, three of
whom are backs. The game lasts
about twenty minutes, with only a
two-minute rest between each quar-
ter of five minutes each. First downs
are granted with each ive-yard gain.
This year the basketball tourna-
ment between the home rooms was
exceptionally good. There were 48
teams, the greatest number ever
scheduled in any one year in Altoona

GIRLS IN THE SPOTLIGHT
One of the nicest things for girls
in the activity program of our high
school is the Intramural Sports. They
are conducted after school, under the
leadership of Miss Frances McGinnis,
and any girl is entitled to take part.
The Intramurals got off to a quick
start with a few weeks of practice
preceding the badminton tournament.
Badminton took the place of the
hockey of other years. Participating
were eighty girls, in this group,
Patty Weaver and Susan Stormer
were the winning partners. The girls
took real interest in perfecting the
technique of the game.
Without any preliminary practice,
the teams for the kickball tourna-
ment were picked by the selected cap-
tains. Approximately one hundred
girls made up the twelve teams.
Jackie Delgrosso was the captain of
the winning team.
Next came basketball, which cre-
ated much enthusiasm and good
sportsmanship. A week preceding the
tournament was used for the mas-
tery of the rules and regulations of
the game. The outstanding players
were chosen as an honorary varsity
Last of all came volleyball. After
practicing a few days, the teams were
chosen and the tournament began.
There was keen intramural competi-
tion, which made the girls alert and
eager to gain points.
There are underclass girls who
hope to attain the goal reached by
many senior girls. Much praise is
merited by the girls who worked so
hard for their letters and numerals
through three years of all-around
sports participation -thus putting
girls in the spotlight.

A Treasure Chest Filled With Fun
"Have you bought your activities
ticket?" This question was often
echoed through the halls of A. H. S.
during the ticket sale in the latter
part of September. The purchase of
the ticket is optional, but almost
every student buys one. These tick-
ets are keys which open treasure
chests of fun and pleasure.
The money received from this sale
becomes a part of a common treasury
from which the Activities Associa-
tion can draw.
The membership card makes it
possible for a student to receive
many benefits: The Mountain Echo
and the Compass without cost, and
the Horseshoe at a reduction in priceg
enjoyment from the "paid" assembly
programs which are made possible by
the associationg and a substantial
saving to all sports-minded students
in reduced rates on athletic tickets.
The fine program of activities in
Altoona High, made possible through
the cooperation of pupils and teach-
ers, gives opportunities for the de-
velopment of individual interests and

School Improvement in the Making
Home Room Representatives are
truly democratic delegates, each one
having been chosen by his respective
home room. This group has many
functions, one of the main ones is
helping to solve problems which af-
fect the students themselves.
This year, after considering some
of the problems in the school and
discussing methods of improvement,
this Wide-awake body launched "Teen
Tactics," a policy which was accepted
with enthusiasm by the students.
These representatives also act as
sales managers in their home rooms.
It is their duty to take charge of the
sale of P. T. A., activities, concert,
and annual show tickets, and to han-
dle Horseshoe subscriptions. They
are also responsible for the collec-
tion of funds for all approved school

The installation of Girls League
officers on September 16 was the first
of many fine programs presented by
the League. At that meeting the
Reverend George Bowers spoke on
"Right and Wrong." His topic, one
of interest to everyone, was well re-
At a later date a representative of
the Butterick Pattern Company, Miss
Florence Swartz, gave a wealth of
information on styles, color combi-
nations, and figure types. Her sug-
gestions on fashions for teen-agers
were really "on the beam."
Included in this year's activities
were the sophomore orientation pro-
gram, a talent show, which aug-
ments the scholarship fund, and a
Mother and Daughter banquet.

Regains Prominencc in School Life
In October the first meeting of the
reorganized Boys Federation, which
had been inactive for two years, was
called to order. Hugh G. Black, the
sponsor, explained the purpose of the
organization-to develop the interest
of the boys and to advance their
physical, social, mental, and spirit-
ual welfare. The guest speaker, the
Reverend Karl E. Swanberg, stressed
the fact that keen interest and untir-
ing effort is essential to the success
of any undertaking.
The Federation, throughout the
year, heard excellent speakers on a
variety of subjects and enjoyed a
film on game conservation. A magic
show was put on by Mr. McDermitt
for the purpose of raising money to
be used for scholarship awards and
loans for deserving college men, the
correction of eye defects and the pur-
chase of glasses, and for the general
assistance of needy boys in Altoona

The Seriveneras Paradise
On the air! The scriveners of

evening over station WRTA, when
they present plays, debates, and
other special features.
In addition to this weekly program,
these enterprising students partici-

this Altoona group, with the guid-
ance and help of Miss Heller, is al-

the student must be presented with
an application for membership.

KNOW WHAT'S NEW IN SCIENCE
Academy of Science
The Academy of Science was com-
posed of students with ability and
interest in science. The members did
research in original projects which
they presented to the club and which
they entered competitively at the
science fair and at the regional meet-
ings of the state organization. Visit-
ing lecturers and field trips high-
lighted the year's program.
Art Display Club
With their artistic arrangements in
display cases and on bulletin boards,
the Art Display Club members
stressed A. H. S. social and athletic
events, as well as the different sea-
sons and special days of the year.
The variety and timeliness of dis-
plays not only captured the interest
of the students, but caught the eyes
of visitors, too.
Rain or shine, the Auxiliary Police
were on duty. Before and after
school they were outside the building
directing pedestrian traffic and en-
forcing the safety laws. At com-
mencement and the senior banquet
they helped park cars. This group,
sponsored by John Yon, worked out
a system of letter awards similar to
that of the football team.
Hugh Black, who coached baseball
during the spring months, also found
time to sponsor the Baseball Club.
This group met once each week to
discuss different plays. Mr. Black
taught the boys the fundamentals
and the "inside" of baseball, thus
giving them a better understanding
both in playing and following the

Three cheers for the Booster Club!
Of course you've heard them-cheer-
ing our football and basketball teams
on to victory. Throughout the year,
under the sponsorship of Francis
Wood, the aim of this club was to
promote enthusiasm and spirit at
athletic games. You must agree they
did a super job!
The boys' Bowling Club, under the
sponsorship of Elwood Faris, met
after school on Thursdays at the
Trialto bowling alley. In May, the
scores of the members of the six
teams were averaged, and the six
boys with the highest scores went to
Harrisburg to play for the state high
Roll those balls, girls, strike! Set
them up again, boys, for the mem-
bers of the Bowling Club who meet
at the Trialto Bowling Alleys on al-
ternate Thursdays! The girls of the
club were enthusiastic as they tried
to better their scores and improve
their technique. Miss Eyre was the
sponsor of this energetic group.
Honor counts are important-to
the members of the Bridge Club, at
least! The "fans" met every other
Thursday, under the direction of
Miss Hare, in the placement office, to
study the fundamentals of this inter-
esting game. The club also enjoyed
the refreshments which were served
at every meeting.

ENCOURACE NEATNESS AND ORDER
Please pick up those papers before
you leave! That's the familiar admo-
nition of the Cafeteria Patrol check-
ing on the order of the cafeteria.
This group of boys, sponsored by
John Yon and Carl Graf, see to it
that the lines are orderly, the paper
picked up, excess noise eliminated,
and the chairs properly placed.
The Conservation Club, a worthy
organization under the sponsorship
of Cyril Ramsey, performs a neces-
sary service to our community. The
aim of this club is to promote interest
in the preservation of the gifts of
nature. Although this was the first
year the club was in existence, it
proved its merit in many ways.
Each week a group of Christian
boys and girls enjoyed an hour of
fellowship. A period of singing and
testimonies was followed by a speak-
er who brought a short message from
the word of God. Every Fellowship
Club meeting featured a short enter-
tainment by members with special
interest and talent.
Flask and Beaker Club
As a project, the Flask and Beaker
Club, under the sponsorship of Wil-
bert Hoffman, performed experi-
ments on commercial products, to de-
termine the merits of each of them.
Other activities of this group in-
cluded hearing speakers, going on
field trips, visiting chemical plants,
and providing news for a Pittsburgh

TRAIN FOR WISE USE OF TIME
Future Teachers of America
The Future Teachers of America
were sponsored by Eugene Lantz.
The students in the club expect to
go to college and most of them plan
to teach. The privilege of visiting a
grade school and teaching for a short
time was a "high spot" of the year.
Talks on college life were featured at
The newly formed Hall Patrol was
responsible for increased order and
quiet in our halls while classes were
in session. This group was composed
of pupils with high scholastic records
who were selected for the job. Miss
Heiss was their sponsor. For par-
ticipation in this work, the students
Hi-Y Club, Junior
The Junior Hi-Y, affiliated with
the Y. M. C. A., was made up of a
group of boys from the junior class
whose purpose it is to promote high
standards of Christian character in
school and community. The boys met
each week at the "Y" and carried out
an active and varied program of
sports, educational features, and so-
Hi-Y Club, Senior
A group of senior boys banded to-
gether to form a Hi-Y Club. Their
purpose is "To create, maintain, and
extend, throughout the school and
community, high standards of Chris-
tian character." Every Thursday
night they enjoyed sports, swim-
ming, or, perhaps, a short movie.
Their motto is "Clean speech, clean

APPRECIATE SPONSOR GUIDANCE
Horseback Riding Club
Ride 'em, cowgirl! To learn the
correct methods of all the phases of
horseback riding is the aim of the
club. The girls were divided into
groups of five and assigned a certain
day of the week in which to go riding.
At the stables in Pleasant Valley,
they rode for one hour with instruc-
Nature Observation Club
With the ending of the first semes-
ter, the Nature Observation Club
completed its study of aquariums.
The students found that the study of
the likes and dislikes, the surround-
ings, the growth of fish can be very
absorbing. Field trips were planned
for the study of different kinds of
flowers and trees.
It's fun to learn how to take pic-
tures correctly and then develop
them yourself. This is the main pur-
pose of the Photography Club di-
rected by Harold D. Yoder. The stu-
dents take unusual "shots" and late
in the year have an exhibit of the
best ones. This is a worthwhile club
for any amateur in photography.
The Pinochle Club was one of the
few clubs that was organized with-
out the help of a teacher sponsor.
Student officers were able to manage
it successfully for the enjoyment of
the members. After several meetings
had been held, tournaments were
staged between winners to find the
best players of the group.

Roller Skating Club
To learn new techniques and im-
prove old ones is the purpose of the

in the afternoons after school at the

members gained self-confidence and
felt more at home on skates after a
few of these meetingsg the expe-

Pedestrians who passed the Teen-
Age Club on alternate Thursday aft-
ernoons heard the strains of "Bal-
lerina," "How Soon," and other pop-
ular songs coming from the "juke
box." There the Social Dancing Club
got together to learn new steps. The
membership was large enough to call
for five instructors. So, on with the

The squad leaders play an impor-
tant part in the work of the boys'
gym classes. These boys, chosen for
their dependability and quality of
leadership, take charge of the squads
during regular classwork. They also
work with the squads during gym
tests, directing the boys and helping
them to improve their form.
Swimming and Water Safety Club
The Swimming and Water Safety
Club, under the sponsorship of Paul
Morse, met at the Y. M. C. A. every
Thursday. Two lifeguards assisted in
training the club members. This club
was open not only to those who
wished to improve their strokes by
more practice, but also to those who
enjoyed fun in the water.

THE HORSESHOE OF 1948
Can you imagine a crowded hall in
which everyone is going a different
direction, or a stairway that reminds
you of an escalator that suddenly
began going backward, leaving every-
one and everything in a mad scram-
ble? Of course not, this would be
very difficult for a student of A.H.S.
to imagine, for we have Traffic Pa-
This organization is composed of
loyal students who are elected each
year by the faculty and older mem-
bers of T.A.P. Their bright arm-
bands may be found everywhere in
A.H.S., while under the guiding hand
of Miss Lauver the members faith-
fully execute their duties at their
posts and keep our hall and stairway
traffic moving in an efficient manner.
The Tumbling Club entertained on
a number of occasions during the
year. For the Girls League, the girls
presented a very delightful program
which included a number of novelty
features with mats and springboards.
They also appeared in the annual
show and in assemblies. The sponsor
was Miss Dorothy Richards.
"Section A, row B, seat C-right
here, sir!" Such is the courtesy and
attention given all patrons of im-
portant events of the Altoona High
School, whether the event is a foot-
ball game, an annual show, or an
orchestra concert. An all-girl organ-
ization, under the sponsorship of
Miss Eyre and Miss Lauver, it can
boast of a line personnel.

INSPIRATION FOR EVERYONE
In October, Frank Krivsky, the
band and orchestra director, ac-
cepted a new position at Valley Forge
Academy and was replaced by Rus-
sel Bohn, who came from Ephrata
High School, where he directed in-
On February sixth, under the di-
rection of Mr. Bohn, the band pre-
sented its annual concert in the
Roosevelt auditorium. At Hollidays-
burg, the judges showed their ap-
proval of our band by awarding it
first place in a contest held there.
"On-Altoona," played by the band,
after each touchdown, and many
other selections, kept enthusiasm at
high ebb for each game.

With the signing off of the public

The spotlight shone this year on the
big event presented in April, the

ALWAYS IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Howard W. Lindaman
Now focus the beam of the spot-
light on Howard Lindaman's A Cap-
pella Choir, one of the organizations
to which the school looks with pride.
During the year it was the center of
attraction on many occasions and at
The choir members felt honored
when they received an invitation to
sing for an educators' conference
held at Lock Haven State Teachers
College in October: there they ren-
dered several selections for an appre-
ciative audience. Just before Christ-
mas, the group sang for the patients
in the Cresson Tuberculosis Sanito-
rium. A very enjoyable portion of
the Christmas musical program was
rendered by the A Cappella Choir.

eral important engagements came in

appeared on the Lincoln Day Dinner

Governor Duff as honor guest.
There were many requests
the students of A.I-I.S. for the choir
to sing and the members, happy to
comply, rendered selections for class
meetings and many other assemblies.
Th annual show was based on the
idea of a tour, with the travelers en-

The fortunate girls who were in
Francis G. Wood's Chorus had a
period of enjoyment and musical in-
spiration each day of the week. The
Thanksgiving program held a special
place for the chorus, and each stu-
dent felt thankfulness in his heart
as he listened to their songs. A trip
to Philipsburg was a main event of
the year, and the program rendered
was highly appreciated by the au-
dience. The loveliness of the Christ-
mas pageant was enhanced by the
traditional carols sung so splendidly
by the choir. Broadcasting over
WJ SW several times during the year
on the program School Days pro-
vided fun and a thrill for the girls.
Keep up the good Work, and our
school will always be in the spotlight!

Room 317 was the center of ac-
tivity for the Girls Chorus under the
direction of Miss Alma Eberle. The
chorus did splendid work in the
Christmas pageant, Adoration. The
members also participated in the
Christmas musical which was pre-
sented in the high school auditorium.
The repertoire of this chorus con-
sisted mainly of religious music. The
octette is a very active part of the
B E A M Miss Alma M. Eberle
group, it has provided entertainment
for various P.T.A. meetings through-
out the city and also for programs
at the Penn-Alto. The Girls League
enjoyed the numbers presented at
one of its meetings. It is an inspira-
tion to the students of A.H.S. to
have organizations, such as this
chorus, which give to our school a
Warm, friendly "beam."

'l'lllCRlC'S MAGIC IN MUSIC
Three times a Week the dance band,
under the leadership of Ted Johnson,
met after school and practiced that
special kind of music that boys and
girls like for dancing. This group
played the latest "hits" of the day,
and it was fun to dance to its music
at the various school functions. The
band also played for several outside
activities. The students of A.H.S. are
always eager for this group to be
successful because it adds enjoyment
to school life.
nn .utu Polka
The members of the String Quartet
use two violins, a viola, and a cello.
Early in the fall the group banded
together for practice with John Mas-
ters as student leader. The ensemble.
with the help of Mr. Krivsky and Mr.
Bohn, earned high commendation for
excellent performance. The quartet
numbers included in a program pre-
sented at Juniata College and the one
given in the annual orchestra concert
were well received. During the year
the group furnished entertainment
for different P.T.A. meetings.

Fannie E. Magee
As usual. the dramatics depart-
ment, under the direction of Miss
Fannie Magee, gave to aspiring
young actors and actresses a fine
opportunity for training in such im-
portant things as proper breathing,
clear speaking, and pantomime. The
whole school reaped the benefits of
this training, for the dramatics stu-
dents presented many entertaining
plays in assemblies.
The English Department play was
a comedy in three acts, "Apron-
String Revolt"g it was presented in
the Roosevelt auditorium on Decem-
ber 5. "The Adoration," given just
before Christmas, was a religious
pageant with the story taking place
in Judea: it was a beautiful por-
trayal of a serious theme.
As the curtain fell on the 1947-48
term, the dramatics department
closed a successful season.

Blow, oh gentle mountain breezes, Now the shades of night grow darker
From the golden westg Birds have gone to rest,
Breathe thy peaceful evening tidings But our colors shine the brighter
To the A. H. S. Of the A. H. S.
Whisper to us words of pleasure, Sinking sun behind the hilltops
As the dim twilight Sighs a soft "goodnight"
Softly gathers 'round our colors, To the colors waving o'er us,
Dear Maroon and White. Dear Maroon and White.
Night has slowly crept around us,
Stars are shining bright,
Waving, oh so calm and peaceful,
Dear Maroon and White.
We shall always sing thy praises,
Work for thy successg
Hail to noble Alma Mater!
Hail to A. H. S.
