In the 29 years which followed up to the opening of the original brownstone building in 1906, the high school had four different homes. Among these were the Webster, the Penn, the Emerson, and the Lincoln buildings, the last of which was occupied for the first time in the school term 1894-5. "At one stage," writes Miss Linda Hooper, a teacher in the early high school days, "we had to take temporary refuge in two hastily fitted up rooms above the store at the corner of Seventh Avenue and Twelfth Street." Here the classes were taught by the principal, Mr. L. L. Book, and Miss Hooper in two shifts. Miss Hooper continues, "With only a thin board partition separating the basso and treble of the teaching force, blackboards not much larger than a handkerchief, and every article in the equipment of the most primitive, we could almost imagine ourselves in the district school of 'ye olden time.' " During this period the high school had a succession of principals whose tenure was brief, the last of whom, a certain Mr. Avis, departed quite suddenly and was succeeded by the late Dr. George D. Robb. Since Avis in Latin means "bird" the learned scholars of that year coined a phrase to cover the situation, "One bird flew out, but we got a Robb-in." Stories concerning the prodigious feats of Professor Robb are so numerous that he has become enshrined as a legend wherever A. H. S. old grads get together. However, records of the early classes furnish authentic proof to the fact that he frequently took his geology classes on all day hikes to the Point or Wopsy in search of specimens, participating in informal football games, and sitting down with the pupils to partake of their box lunches. fContinued on page 9l X- If ,- Q lJ 57' xx X x 4 -A Q , . .Q l!!'3!"llis in-fur mir' ' ' 9 1 . 9-9 5 . . 0 1 , -. :g:If"5: ff'-Q ,,d ' f 5 Fw " ' Qif14'?3f?f G Q W ff 8. m v ' N 'W . 7' ' M 5 ,Aw I, . , .

Teams of Past Parents and grandparents of the present generation of students retain vivid memories of the familiar figure of Dean Robb standing at the first floor light- well with stick in hand, challenging all and sundry with the famous Words, "Where to, brother?" ln the l906 annual, the first ever published, Dr. Robb wrote, "The public high school is rapidly becoming the people's college. This is a significant fact. Within the last decade, high schools have sprung up all over the country, and the attendance has increased 10021. High schools no longer are considered expensive luxuries, but the masses are demanding for their children an educa- tion beyond the common branches. They have come to realize that in this com- mercial and industrial age the boy needs brains rather than muscle to meet the sharp competition, and to take his place in the struggle of life. Every com- munity that supports a good high school is increasing its Wage-earning power and setting a high standard for complete living." The truth of Dr. Robb's prophetic message to the class of 1906 has been borne out by the phenomenal growth of education Which, before his retirement, he lived to see. The men who came back from World War I realized more than ever the importance of education and, in 1929, the Board erected a million- dollar annex to the original building. Throughout the 1930's the enrollment of A. H. S. continued to rise until it reached a peak of 4213 in the year 1939-40 with over ll00 graduates annually receiving their diplomas. On his retirement in l930 Dr. Robb was succeeded by Dr. Levi Gilbert, and when the latter was elected superintendent in 1938, he was replaced by the present principal, Ioseph N. Maddocks. lt is estimated that, in the 75 years of its existence, approximately 25,000 men and Women have received their diplomas from Altoona High School. A. -sf L- A ,W If V .ge A QUARTER Pictured above is an architect's sketch of the original Altoona High School building as it appeared at the time the school was opened in 1906. ln the foreground the careful observer will note ladies carrying parasols, a few bug' gies, and even some of those new-fangled Hhorseless carriages." When Altoona High Was built, it cost the then unheard of sum of 3250000 and was the most imposing edifice in the city. Doubtless there were many citizens who shook their heads in dismay and loudly lamented the extrava- gance of the Board of Education. But events have confirmed the wisdom and foresight of those men who had the courage to face critif cism in the belief that Altoona should have a high school second to none. Altoona High School means different things to different people. To some it is only a dreary building Where they spent three or four NEW HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING: l906 MILLION FOR WHAT? reluctant years and then escaped to take their place in the World of affairs. Others, no doubt, when Altoona High is mentioned, Will conjure up a vision of a favorite sport or activity in which they participated, or perhaps a class or a teacher who made a more or less permanent impression upon their memory. However, in the last analysis, a school, like any other institution, is judged by its product. lf this is the case, Altoona High is far from being, as some of its detractors state, a mere "diploma mill." Over the years Altoona grads have made an outstanding record in the field of busi- ness, the professions, industry, and the sports and entertainment worlds. Altoona High is justly proud of the achievements of its gradu- ates. And they, in turn, retain fond recollec- tions of the place where they received their earliest training. 0 ff 2 , 5 g F ' I U lg! ,Q M3 . -MW W . , 1. 4 7 Q-ff , 'N ' '54 Q Q' riffs- "' 1 ? Vvtx.

REYNOLDS President The Board of School Directors for the School Dis- trict of the City of Altoona is composed of these nine men and is authorized by the laws of Pennsylvania. This Board is responsible to the voters for securing funds to run the schools, for spending the funds, and for seeing that the educational program is adequate. This year they controlled an educational system of 11,000 students, 600 professional and non-profes- sional employees, and had an operating budget of 52,504,722 - During the past several years the Board has con- cerned itself chiefly with physical improvements to the school plant. A continual program of improve- ment is now under way, which includes the installa- tion of new heating plants, replacing old lighting with modern fluorescent lighting systems, and paint- ing the interiors and exteriors of various school build- ings. Recently the Board authorized the purchase and erection of a modern flood lighting system of the athletic field to permit night games. DIRECTORS Wm H Burchneld Charles W. Clugh Walter H. Grove Park S. Hite Wm F Lehman Ias. K. McNeal, Ir. Frank Marsh Roy L. Thompson 12 In the world today we witness a terrific struggle being waged between two opposing philosophies of government-communism, as characterized by the Union of Soviet Republics, and democracy, as characterized by the United States of America. I am deeply concerned for the outcome of the contest. I note an appalling apathy among eligible voters in our country for their responsibilities and duties as American citizens. This indifference on the part of our citizens has resulted not only in corruption and inefficiency in our democratic form of govern- ment, but it has enabled certain opportunist in- dividuals to capitalize on these conditions and to spread their pernicious principles of govern- ment among our citizens. When our forefathers established the Ameri- can form of democracy, they recognized that only through the development and maintenance of a thorough system of free public schools could that form of government which they had established be made to function in the manner which they had envisaged. It follows then that you, the graduating class of l95l, who repre- sent the highest level of development of that free public school system, have a definite re- sponsibility to use the skills, the knowledge, the ideals which you have attained through high school not only to make a living but also for the service and improvement of that govern- ment. If the people are to remain the sovereign power, if the will of the people is to be the law of the land, if an act of the government is to be an act of the peaple, then it is absolutely essen- tial that you be concerned about and show a willingness to participate actively in the re- sponsibilities of American citizenship. To do so will truly substantiate "Seventy-five Years of Progress." MR. IOSEPH N. MADDOCKS ln june this year's graduating class will be an important addition to that larger group oi more than twenty-five thousand persons to receive an Altoona High School diploma. Cer- tainly We expect the members of this splendid class to take their places in the community and assume the responsibilities of citizenship in a Way that will promote the advancement of our American Way of life. You are graduating from the Altoona High School at a very unusual time in the history of our nation as well as that of the entire World. Self-seeking individuals and nations are creat- ing tensions such as the World has never known. lf our civilization is to survive, intelligent leader- ship and informed citizenship are necessary. Our School is making an earnest effort to pre- "w'-fl-'mffjnh - .

Your suc- cess will be the measure of our achievement. Since this is the 75th Anniversary Class, it means that seventy-four classes have preceded you. We are justly proud of the records of our graduates. Many have acquired national and international fame. Our graduates can be found in virtually all parts of the world. While our school has enjoyed favorable recognition from every agency qualified to judge the merits of a high school program, nevertheless, the re- sponsibility ior success rests with you as an in- dividual. We sincerely hope you have ac- quired all the attributes necessary for a happy and successful life.

Do you suppose the six mem- bers of that first graduating class of the Altoona High School could predict the future which is today? Could they have forseen automobiles, airplanes, radio, television, all of which are now commonplace? Can We of today foresee the future with its uncertainty? We older ones can- not, and probably you cannot. However, you have attended and have been graduated from this high school. You have learned this, I hope: you need not have fear because of your inabil- ity to foresee the future: the important thing is not that we foresee the future, but that we do not fear it. 'evils .- - ln your schooling, Which has culminated for the time being in high school, you have done far more than merely acquire knowledge. You have developed habits of Work, study, and play. You have formed attitudes and personal philoso- phies. You have established friendships which will be a part of your life from now on. You have put yourselves in debt intellectually to the faculty who have Worked with you, a debt which you repay when you establish yourself in the World as responsible citizens. And now We send you into the world. Like the class of 1877, you cannot foretell the future, and like them, you must not fear it. Congratu- lations and best Wishes to each and every one of you. MR.

Home Room Each of the 80 home rooms of A. H. S. selects one person to represent it at the student coun- cil. These people are the home room represen- tatives, Whose ideals and objects are similar to those oi the Senate. They are required to carry back from representative meetings infor- mation concerning student activities, and to take the lead in the home room programs, which in- clude discussions on student conduct and on fire drills and college conferences. Their goal is to keep the standards ot the school as high as possible in the interest ot the student body and the community. 23 Representatives Miss Bloomlield Top Row: Miss Bancroft, Miss Corle, Miss Faust Bottom Row: Miss Fleck, Mr. Hoffman, Miss Mattern fMiss Orr not picturedl The class of '51 has finally reached that long awaited goal-graduation. During their three years at A. H. S. they have worked ear- nestly to prepare themselves for the future. High on the list of achievements are the honor and distinction brought to the school by two seniors, loan Frank and Sheryl Crain, winners in the American Legion Oratorical and Essay Contests. As a diversion the seniors sponsored a dance on November 24, at the lewish Mem- orial Center, which was quite successful. An active class, seniors led the way in other activi- ties, namely: the English Department play, the SENIOR OFFICERS well, treasurer. annual show, the Senate, and the athletic pro- gram. Seniors forged ahead with "improvement" as their goal. A panel discussion was held in the auditorium to discuss school problems. Many of the participants in this panel were seniors who stressed school and self-improve- ment. As a result of this panel the student body formed an advisory council composed of four members from each class. These boys and girls are now ready to begin their careers, jobs, and dreams. May they be ever courageous and have as much am- bition as they did in this, their graduating year.

They have passed the awkward adjustments of the sophomore year and still have the pleasures of the senior year to look tor- ward to. The class of 1952 took full advantage of its fortunate circumstances. They elected their officers early and settled down to being juniors. They started off their social season with the Daisy Hop and later sponsored the Cupid Dig, both full-ot-fun events. In February the entire class gathered in the auditorium and calmly took their I. Q. test under controlled conditions, later being complimented tor their conduct and performance. The class was well represented in all activi- ties and sports: they Worked hard and played hardy and now they look forward eagerly to being seniors.

Following a planned program, the sopho- mores received excellent guidance their first few weeks in Altoona High School. On October l7 and 18 the 800 sophomores attended two re- ceptions in their honor in the cafeteria. At this time they were introduced to the superintendent of schools, the department heads, the sopho- more class sponsors, and the teachers, all ot whom gave them advice and instructions re- garding their high school careers. One of their most outstanding programs was an orchestra concert by the Altoona High School orchestra under the direction of Mr. Iohn Monti. Since the sophomores came from different junior high schools, class elections were not held until the middle of the term to enable them to get acquainted with their classmates. At this time the following students were elected: president, William Burchfieldy Vice president, William Reeder: secretary, Cora Mae Tanney- hilly treasurer, George Rhine. 79 1 The Sophomore Class SOPHOMORE SPONSORS Top Row: Miss Cherry, Miss Crist Middle Row: Mr. Graf, Mr. Rung Bottom Row: Miss Unverzaqt, Mr. Yost tMr. Alfred Dietze not pictured belowl Cast of German Play: 1906 The Activity Program In A.H. Activities in the early high school days were confined largely to glee clubs, debating and oratorical societies, and language clubs. The first orchestra of eight members was organized in 1906 tpage '73 under a student director, Charles C, Woods. ln the same year publication work began with the first an- nual headed by Lynn Nl. Moses, and the first Mountain Echo, edited by Dee Brown, lt was not until l9l2 that the A. l-l,S. band tpage 79 made its initial appearance playing at the War Governors Convention here in that year. For a time the organization lapsed but the band was revived in the l92O's and, under the late Frank Krivslcy, attained state-wide prominence in the l93U's. Choral work, which forms so prominent a part of the modern high school, dates back to the early 1900's when Euphemia Heilrnan flonesi was director of music. Since l925, when Howard luindaman came to Altoona l-ligh, school choirs have Carried the maior roles in the various annual shows. The a Cappella choir fpage 75, perfected by Mr. Lindaman in the thirties, has served to launch many a suc- cessful musical career, invludirig that of lanet fl.af'fertyJ Blair who graduated from the ranks of the choir to Broadway and Hollywood fame. One of the oldest continuous organizations is the Girls' League founded in l9Z2 by Miss E, Marie Lentz, to promote standards of service and scholarship among the girls. ln l93l, lrvin S, Gress, then dean of boys, founded a similar organization for the boys. One outgrowth of these societies was the rapid development of student clubs which they sponsored. The student Senate was started about 1930 by Harold l. Pegg and replaced an earlier Student Council of the twenties as the student self-governing body. The leaders of all the major student organizations, in addition to elected represen- tatives of each class, comprise the membership of the Senate. At one time dramatics in A. H. S. was largely confined to productions presented by foreign language clubs tsee picture abovel and one-act assembly plays. During the last two decades, however, the high spot of the dramatics year has been the annual English play presented in the fall of the year. fi 41' fzww ug I A M ' M as X -, K- in N 'Ni-5 3 .

The first of this year's series of genuinely entertaining meetings was an absorbing talk on communism given by Mrs. Silvacs, a refugee from Latvia. The following meeting provided 'an interesting assembly dealing with teen-age habits. Of course, the girls will all recall the style show sponsored by the Simplicity Pattern Company, a show which gave them an idea of the many creations that could be made with just a pattern, a sewing machine, and a little pa- tience. The next program in the series was a movie film called "Fast Date," which revealed the horrible consequences that can result from reckless driving. Oh's and ah's were audible on the day delectable foods were made right on stage by the representative from the Natural Gas Company. Concluding the year's programs was the annual mother and daughter banquet. The girls and their mothers were privileged to hear the distinguished Baron Eric Von Tannenberg from Estonia recount his experiences with the Communists. Boys' Federation With the introduction of officers on Septem- ber 28, 1950, the Boys' Federation held its initial meeting. Throughout the year the primary purpose that was maintained Was that of devel- oping the interest of the boys and of advancing their physical, social, mental, and spiritual Wel- fare. Many programs were arranged to promote this purpose. The entertainment at Christmas, which featured Mr. William Houraney at the organ, was well received. The organ music blending with the Voices of the boys in the tradi- tional carols brought forth much seasonal feel- ing. This year most of the boys were due for military service, none of them before gradua- tion. ln order to enlighten their minds a little, speeches were given by actual service officers, who tried to advise the boys concerning the situation facing them. Of all the programs held, the most outstand- ing Was that which had as the main speaker, Benny Bengough, coach of the Philadelphia Phillies. Through his discussion on baseball and the questions from the audience, the pro- gram proved to be one of the best liked of the year. MR.

Finally, the entire senior class chose the White cover with the maroon from tive samples by popular vote. The lite of the annual staff was not all a bed ot roses. Daily journals were kept, from which the calendar couplets above the senior pictures were composed. We identified stu- dents in over seven hundred pictures. And oh, that Writing, rewriting, and re-rewriting to tailor all the Writing to fit into carefully meas- ured spaces! The sports writers had their troubles too, with scores, records, and photo- graph identifications. These are the mechanics of putting an annual togetherenot all play, of course, but it was tun. Here you have our combined efforts, and we hope We have fashioned an annual you Will like now and cherish in the future. "The seniors will never go for that cover."

' if zu - One of the best organized groups in the high school is the staff of the Mountain Echo. Several working groups are smoothly synchron- ized into a complete newspaper staff, consisting of twenty-one members. ln addition, there is an extra reporting crew of fourteen people. This staff is reorganized and the editors replaced each semester. Sports, literature, arts, and science are ade- quately covered each month, as well as such features as the Senior Socialite Column, which contains thumbnail sketches of outstanding sen- ior personalities. This year two new columns, "I'sfa-lottin's" and "Lightwell," have been added.

Many newcomers to our school also de- pend upon the Compass. This little booklet contains all the informa- tion necessary to get along in the school, in- cluding school regulations, attendance rules, songs, cheers, faculty list, required reading list, and even the school floor plans with room num- bers in case one gets lost. F ull credit should be given to those behind the scenes on the publication for the careful Work they do. Each staff member has her own duties. Hers is the job to consult the heads of departments and the administrators for specific material and to check the accuracy of that material. When all the material has been gathered, it is checked, re-checked, and proofread. Then the Compass is ready to go to press. All the hard Work that goes with the Compass is noth- ing compared to the aid it renders to the sopho- mores. 1' Quill and Scroll Tune in every Monday evening at 4:30 to station WRTAl You'll hear your friends of Quill and Scroll performing their weekly broadcast.

This year members of this group, in addi- tion to speaking before several civic organiza- tions, presented their projects at the science fairs in Indiana, Duquesne, Allentown, and the Buhl Planetarium in Pittsburgh.

Effective displays are va source of information and pleasure for the stu- dents of A. H. S. They present an opportunity to publicize student achievements and awards. They also promote enthusiasm for departmental activities and school publications.

The difficult and important task of directing pegestrian traffic and enforcing the safety laws outside our building falls to the Auxiliary Police. Under the direction of Mr. Iohn Yon, this group has made their armbandg and poles symbols of safety, and has contributed heavily to our splendid safety record. They also have the job of parking cars at the football games, at Bac- calaureate and Commencement exercises, and are included in the awards given at the end of the year.

Boosters' Club The Boosters' Club, under the guidance of Mr. Philip Ghessie, was responsible for much ot the school spirit found at basketball and foot- ball games during the year. Working in conjunction with the A. H. S. cheerleaders in such projects as the sale ot school pencils and plastic seat cushions, the Boosters have become a vital element in main- taining school morale. Most of the members who met regularly on club period days were seniors, and so Mr. Ghessie sees the need for newer members for the Boosters. Fellowship Club The theme and purpose of the Fellowship Club was Christian service and the obtaining ot experience for those who will some day go into the religious work. The club, sponsored by Miss Sarah Dun- can, carried on a variety of activities during the year designed to promote religious interest. Clergymen from the community came to speak at some of the meetings and missionaries from Alaska and the Philippines were heard. Future Teachers of America The main purpose of the Future Teachers' Club is to promote enthusiasm towards and in- terest in teaching as a lite work. Under the sponsorship of Mr. Eugene Lantz the club meets every other Wednesday to discuss the psycho- logical aspects of teaching and to hear inter- esting talks by college education supervisors, practice teachers, and school administrators. As two of their many projects the members of Future Teachers' Club participated in radio broadcasting and visited elementary schools of the city to gain experience in grade school teaching.

Hall Patrol Nearly one hundred boys and girls served the school as hall patrol members under the supervision of Miss Kathryn Bloomfield during the l95O-51 term. Among their various duties were the checking of hall passes and the keep- ing ot order in the halls during classes, cer- tainly a difficult iob.

Pyramid Club The purpose of the Pyramid Club is to train girls to build triangular formations, using dif- ferent gymnastic stunts. The girls build the centers of the pyramids on tables using poles and small benches. This year the members of the club have obtained two pyramid ladders in order to build new and different formations. Giving public demonstrations is one aspect of the club. This activity was not begun until the second semester after the return of the sponsor, Miss Frances McGinnis. Boys' Squad Leaders The experience senior and junior boys gain from serving as squad leaders in the physical education classes helps them to develop de- pendability and leadership. Squad leaders are appointed each year to aid in the daily exer- cises, to take charge of equipment, and to open lockers at the close of each class. These boys, chosen for their ability and gymnastic skill, do much to increase general efficiency in conduct- ing the gym classes. Girls' Intramural Sports Club ln case you have ever wondered what those loud screams coming from the girls' gym after school are, it's the Girls' Intramural Sports Club playing basketball or some other rousing game. The purpose of this club, under the lead- ership of Miss Frances McGinnis, is to provide opportunity for, and stimulate interest in, ath- letic activities. ln addition to healthy exercise and physical skills, the girls strive to acquire the spirit of good sportsmanship.

Candidates are nominated and elected by the faculty and rnembershof the patrol. Miss Marie Lauver is sponsorlffof the group. h Cafeteria Patrol Credit for the fact that there are no flying saucers in our cafeteria, or other flying missiles such as roles, cups, and crumpled napkins, can be given to the Cafeteria Patrol. They also have the task of seeing that chairs are pushed neatly against the tables and dirty dishes are taken to the dishwashers. This unsung but very necessary group is under the direction of Mr. Carl Graf and Mr. Iohri Yon. Ushers Club The girls who come earliest to games and concerts in order to lend a helping hand and a ready smile are known as the Ushers.

S. band appeared in numerous athletic events, community festivi- ties, and many parades and, in addition, pre- sented its annual concert at the Mosque. Under the direction of Iohn Monti, the band has introduced several innovations this year. Monotonous precision drills have been changed to pageant and novelty formations such as a western rodeo, the numeral, twenty eight, in a program for the Twenty-eighth Division, and the "Chattanooga Shoe-shine Boy".

As in the past, they were under the direc- tion this year ot Howard W. Lindaman, and scheduled the first and second periods in the auditorium. The a Cappella concentrates chief- ly on sacred music, including this year "Our Lord Now Victorious," sung at commencement, "Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "The Lord's Prayer." However, this year the a Cappella undertook one ot its most ambitious projects, the major portion ot the singing and acting in the annual show, which, in this case, was "The Red MR. HOWARD W.

Throughout the year the group, in addition to this major activity, made various public per- formances in the community, presenting a dra- matic effect in their new robes of deep maroon with white collars. They received great ap- plause at the opening of the local community chest drive, at their Veteran's Hospital enter- tainment, at various functions at the laffa Mosque, the Penn Alto Hotel, and the Iewish Temple. Their assembly concerts in our own auditorium were high spots of entertainment here. H Important groups within the main group are the senior girls' quartet, the senior octet, and various barber shop quartets. These small- er groups do performances of their own, under Mr. Lindaman's direction. An interesting in- novation this year was the May Festival, in which all the major music organizations of the city took part, from grade schools up, featur- ing separate groups and larger units. Following in the rich tradition of previous years, this year's a Cappella was one of the best advertisements in the community for the Altoona High School.

BOHN Hidden away on the third tloor of the build' ing are two of the finest choral groups that the high school has ever produced, although they are very seldom publicized as the bigger cho- ruses are. Mr. Russel Bohn's Choruses special- ize in classical numbers, with proper emphasis on songs for the annual show, in which they co- operated this year with the a Cappella. The choruses were scheduled to sing in this year's May Music Festival. ln addition to his two groups, Mr. Bohn has also directed the all girl chorus, another oi our outstanding choral groups. 115 J" . M' x f ar 'I It's all done by mirrors t W is t DRAMATICS The highlight of the dramatic year Was the three-act English department play, under the direction of Miss Sarah Le Van, entitled "And Came the Spring." The theme of the play cen- tered around a typical American family and their teen-age daughter Whose fascination for her sister's beau brings trouble for the family and laughs for the audience. The arrival of a New York society girl adds chaos to the family household, but all complications are straight- ened out just in time to end the play happily. The play was one of the best received pro- ductions presented in the school thus far. It was outstanding for its remarkable timing and was also financially successful. Another drama presented during the year was the one-act play entitled "Red Carnation", which was a dramatic innovation to A. H. S. students as it was a script-in-hand presentation. To those who prefer an exciting melo- drama, "The Lights Went Out" Was a thriller. The cast enjoyed doing it and the audience re- ceived it Well. As stage productions were impossible for every occasion, skits presented over the public address system often proved quite effective. Tribute was paid to such immortals as Lincoln and Washington in this manner. This year initiated the arena style play called "The Confession" which was presented after school for those students who were in- terested. ljxdncf 601718 Lights, cameron, oction! 7 7' 7 2 llg K!

ALTOONA HIGH ATHLETIC TEAMS Over the years Altoona High athletic teams have earned respect from most opponents. The trrst athletic team of record was the l895 Football Teanr tpictured abovel. The modern football record dates from l9l7 when the sport was resumed after a lapse of nearly a decade. lt is interesting to notrr that, although victories were recorded over local toes, it was not until 1929 that A. H.S .produced its first championship learn tpage 87, a team which shared the state titlo with Williamsport after a scoreless tie played at the Cricket Field. The Maroon Avalanche, as the team was then called, rnade three more unsuccessful attempts to win the state crown, losing in the l99l linals to lohn Harris, tying Bethle- hern in l934, l3-l3, and bowing to Ashland in l935 at Man- sion Park. Again in l937, the Maroon and Wlrite became the Huncrowned champ" of the WPIAL after coasting through an eleven-game schedule undefeated. The teams produced in the early l94U's were also of charrrpionslrip caliber but, of late, the material has been sub par and strong teams have been tew and tar between. Strong basketball teams at A. H, S. have been so num- erous that it is impossible to mention all ot them. Coach "Abe" Sharadirrs l9l7 team tpage Bl, led by the peerless "Walt" Irwin, compiled the remarkable record ol Z5 wins and two losses. The l92Z team tpage Sl climaxed a suc' cesstul season by accepting an invitation to play in the na- tional tourney at Chicago where they advanced to the iinal round. ln T933 tpago 83 and again in l938 teams coached by "Snaps" Emanuel went to the state finals losing to Lower Merion and Hazleton respectively. The l943 and 1946 toarns went through an entire season with only two losses. The 1949-50 team reached the western semi-finals before losing to Homestead. Track experienced a renaissance in the l93O's under Coach Dick Bartholomew, which resulted in perennial Dis- trict Six championships and numerous state titles tor indi vidual performers. The mile relay team oi l932 tpage 75 won the championship of America at the Penn Relays only to be disqualified for iostling. In l935 "Rabbit" Ward set records in the lUU and ZOO yard dashes of 9.8 and Zl.8 seconds respectively which still stand. Baseball, which flourished for a time in the l92U's, was revived under Coach Hugh Black in the l94U's with great success, victories over such schools as Mercersburg and Kiski being recorded with trequent regularity. 1 Nh VANDERGRIFT GAME Boots lohnson tries vainly to elude three enemy tacklers First Row: Manager I-I.

FOLLOWING the dedication of the new- ly erected Mansion Park lighting plant, Altoona displayed its new "T" formation in a grueling 7-7 deadlock with Windber. The next Saturday the locals, sparked by Oliver Evans and Bill Weaver, hit the win column for the first time since l948 with a 20-13 triumph over Westing- house. NEXT, the Mountain Lions, featuring long runs and pass plays, took the measure of Van- dergrift by a 26-6 count.

Maul Canaries BETUHNING to Mansion Park the follow- ing Friday night, the Lions received their first defeat at the hands of a powerful Latrobe eleven 21-7, the home team's only score coming on Dan Maier's interception and 65 yard run. Touring to Greensburg, Altoona absorbed its second straight defeat 21-O in a game that saw all the scoring confined to the first half. P ACED by the running of Fullback "Skip" Evans with Quarterback Iim Rothrock going over for the only score of the contest, Altoona defeated its arch rivals from lohnstown. Next week going down to defeat in a night game at Farrell 33-O the Lions took their worst defeat in many a season.

After a setback by Farrell, 42-32, the Lions dropped home games to Chambersburg, 52-37, and to Duquesne, 45-33. Traveling to Cham- bersburg during the Christmas recess, the locals met a superior team and went down by a 50-34 count. They then lost a 30-27 heart breaker at Mclieesport. For the first time in six years the Alumni triumphed in the annual game, 56-40, and the locals' losing streak mounted to seven straight when the Maroon and White bowed to lohns- town, 40-3l. 1951 Varsity Seasons Next the Lions vented their spite by piling up an easy 61-29 win over Ferndale, and, still on the rampage, knocked over Franklin, 63-35, and crushed DuBois, 65-31. Unable to stand prosperity, the Lions now dropped two close decisions, to Williamsport, 4l-38, and again to the lawns, 40-36. The latter defeat ended the locals' hopes tor a spot in the District playoits. Returning once more to winning ways, the Lions swept past Westmont, 55-44, and also tagged Franklin with a second deteat, 58-47. However, in a return game, Westmont caught the Lions oft guard and avenged an earlier loss, 47-36.

Athletic Council The ten men shown in the above photo- graph are the "men behind the scenes" who are responsible for the working of the Altoona High athletic program. Representing the School Board and faculty they cooperate with M. Raymond Hoffman, the athletic director, in fixing policies, purchasing athletic equipment and supplies, and arranging schedules of games. One result of their planning Was the in- stallation of lights at Mansion Park which were used for the first time last fall in the Windber game. They also gave their approval to the plan to play night football for the first time in the history of the school. Under the able guidance of the Athletic Council Altoona High is marching forward in step with the times. 137 MR. RAYMOND HOFFMAN ,av The A. H.

Each night over a period of l2 weeks the swish of the basketball sinking through the hoop is a common sound at AHS. Under the super- vision ot Mr. Robert Wolfe and Mr. Paul Morse, the contending home rooms were divided into six team leagues. Two leagues played each night, one in the girls' gym, the other in the boys' gym, three days a week during the twelve-week period. Each of the teams in the league took part in two cycles or round-robins with the other five teams in their league. The two best teams from 1--W Ouch, my toei Over the top. each 1eague met in a p1ay-off to determine the final home room winner. Among the first six teams in competition were Rooms 121, 320, 202, B-10, 315, 102. Home room 102 emerged as the intramura1 Winner. 1t was estimated that 42 different teams participated in the program and at one time or another 335 boys played for their home rooms. Severa1 other ath1etic contests took piace during the term in connection with the physical education program. Among these was a free Biock that shot! Oh, my aching back! throw foul shooting contest in which each boy in the gym c1asses was given ten shots from the fou1 1ine. Some perfect scores were regis- tered. To discover hidden taient for the track team, fifty-yard dash ehminations were he1d in the boys' gym. Other notah1e activities of this term's gym program were training in mass rope c1imbing, the Red Cross emergency carries, and artificia1 respiration. Correct methods were taught and practiced by a11 the boys in the classes. GIRLS' Who's got it! I-low do things look, girls? INTRAMURALS Good sportsmanship is as important among the girls as it is among the boys. With a fine spirit the girls of our high school, under the lead- ership of Miss Frances McGinnis, enjoyed friendly competition in the sports events that took place in the girls' gym after school. This year the girls played round robin dodgeball, basketball, volleyball, scooterball, and mushball tournaments, and an elimination kickball tournament. Refereeing, scorekeeping, and timing was done by members of the teams which were not playing. The girls received awards on a point sys- tem. First award was the last half of the class numeralg second was the first half of the class numeralg third was the eight inch Chenille "Aug and the highest award was the sweater or blazer, whichever was preferred.
