First Class Contained Six Members
The real history of the Altoona High School begins in the year 1877 when
the first graduating class of six members, two girls and four boys, proudly re-
ceived their diplomas on the stage of the original Eleventh Avenue Opera
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.

Great A.H.S. 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.

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
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

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

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
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.

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-
If the people are to remain the sovereign
power, if the will of the people is to be the law

You have chosen wisely in selecting the
theme, seventy-five years of progress, for your
1951 Horseshoe. 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
'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

Capably sponsored by Miss Kathryn Bloom-
fied, the student government in our school, the
Senate, has, among its duties, that of maintain-
ing a high school spirit and a good morale.
This group of Workers, composed of four
members from each class plus a representative
from each major activity, has the responsibility
for the Activities Ticket sale, the Horseshoe sale,
and the P. T. A. Membership sale. Among the
various school problems these members Worked
out was the decoration of the school Christmas
trees, the sponsoring of the College Conference,
and entertaining the school with a Christmas

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.

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
annual show, the Senate, and the athletic pro-
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.

The Iunior class is always the luckiest class
in school. 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

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
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

To create a better understanding among
girls is the primary purpose of the Girls' League.
ln order to fulfill this purpose, a series of pro-
grams is planned for each year.
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

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-

oh, that Writing, rewriting, and re-rewriting to
tailor all the Writing to fit into carefully meas-

troubles too, with scores, records, and photo-

Each year the Compass staff, under the
capable leadership of Miss fda Woomer, pub-
lishes a helpful guide to newly-arrived sopho-
mores. 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
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-

activities promoted by the Academy of Science
which meets monthly under the sponsorship of
Harold C. Wimmer.
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.
Art Display Club
Display cases make a very realistic con-
tribution in highlighting calendar events and
seasonal interest. 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 effect-
ive arrangement of the displays is the Work of a
group of students trained and interested in this
particular field by Miss Marian Plitt.

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.
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

Girls' Bowling Club
"Strike! " Oh, to hear that Wonderful word!
What a thrill it is to know you've knocked down
all ten pins! To knock down ten pins on the
first ball is the purpose of the Girls' Bowling
Club, under the direction of Mr. George Ufema.
The girls meet weekly at the Utema Bowl-
ing Club to enjoy this popular sport. One oi
the things they learn, incidentally, is never to
make a higher score than the steady makes.
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. This service, rendered to
the school by the students themselves, was of
great benefit to the whole student body.

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.

Iust as any community has its police force
to maintain law and order, A. H. S. can proudly
boast of its competent Traffic Patrol-commonly
known as TAP. Their "badges" are in the form
of maroon and white armb s. Their job is
to maintain orderly condu on the stairs
between classes. Candidates are nominated
and elected by the faculty and rnembershof the
patrol. Miss Marie Lauver is sponsorlffof the
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.
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.
These girls, with the distinctive maroon
hats, are seen in attendance at various other
activities, which include the English Department
play, the annual show, various concerts, the
Baccalaureate Service, and the Commencement
exercise. Membership is acquired by recom-
mendation by a senior member, after which the
students are voted upon. Sponsors of this group
are Miss Marie Lauver and Miss Irene Sauser-

Resplendent in bright new uniforms ot red
and black and led by the newly organized ma-
jorette corps, the A. H. 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".
The music has also been revised for great-
er variety. Much to the enjoyment ot all, mar-
tial music has been supplemented with popular
music ot several types.

bering 114 pieces, entertained the fans at the
games with its new music and formations. It
was the largest ever to appear at Mansion Park
and included also a five-girl color guard.
While the basketball season was in prog-
ress, the band furnished the fans with enjoyable
music, one hundred piece group presenting a
fifteen-minute concert which was broadcast over
WISW during the half-time.
May l and 2 a Music Festival for Music
Week was presented at the Mosque in which
the band played an important part.

Qne ot the best liked and wellfknown
features ot this high school is the a Cappella
choir. As in the past, they were under the direc-

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

Mill," Victor Herbert's well-known operetta.
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
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.

sembly programs composed oi various types
ol music, rendered a number of selections for

A greater variety oi music has been intro-
duced this year ranging trom symphony to
swing. The orchestra includes in its repertoire,
concertos, suites, and popular music such as
"Begin the Beguinef' and "Iealousy," which
featured soloist Walter Rose.

This large musical group is a favorite With
all. It is composed oi girls from the sophomore,
junior and senior classes. They specialize in
secular musicffrom Bach to spirituals. Because
ot the tact that the girls take chorus in separate
periods, practices of the complete chorus must
take place after school. This year they took
an active part in the successful music festival
held in May at the Iaiia Mosque.

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
It's all done by mirrors
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-

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
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.

UNDER the leadership of new coach
Kavel, and inspired Maroon and White grid
machine topped a successful season with a
19-12 win over the previously undefeated Can-
aries of Allentown and a 6-O victory in Altoona's
first decision over lohnstown since the contro-
versial l-O win in l94O.
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-
NEXT, the Mountain Lions, featuring long
runs and pass plays, took the measure of Van-
dergrift by a 26-6 count. Led by jolting Bill
Weaver, the Kavelrnen also turned back the
hornestanding gridders of New Kensington, 13-0.
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.
REBOUNDING from the previous week's
loss, the Lions displayed their best form of the
year in deefating a highly favored Allentown
grid machine, at that time top contenders for
the state title.

Many a boy in Altoona High would not
have the opportunity to participate in organized
basketball competition if it were not for the in-
tramural basketball program.
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

two cycles or round-robins with the other five
teams in their league. The two best teams from

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

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.
Who's got it!
I-low do things look, girls?
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.

Yet They Grind Exceeding Small"
Build in your dreams a future time
And build it as you wish it, too.
Picture it often, high and fair,
And then just hold it always there.
Remember, only building thus
Can lite's attainments come to us.
Who build no castles in the air
Will build no castles anywhere.
