Hence, we have chosen the me, "Putting the pieces together". Take, then, this book. Keep it efullyg handle it lovinglyg and look at it thought . The fragments of 1952-53 are strewn in print and picture throughout the pages, fragments of the lives of each member of the class, memories that become more treasured with every passing year. Open it Where one may-at Classes, at Athletics, at Activities-familiar faces, old friends, adolescent incidents are there for one's pleasure. lt is the wish of the editors, staff, and spon- sors that the 1953 Horseshoe will give each owner the satisfaction that they experienced in putting these pieces together. 4 vs. 125 """'? 1 M. .ffzqx ff VX ,,Z" I I K x This is ox school N X.

Marjorie March Frank Marsh Roy F. Thompson 10 On a recent trip my attention was di- rected to the printing on the railroad ticket which I held in my hand, awaiting the conductor. The phrase "not good if de- tached" has remained with me. How ap- plicable this expression is in our daily so- cial relationships! The leader who doesn't maintain a close relationship with his fel- lows soon finds that he doesn't have them working as a harmonious unit. He there- by forfeits his leadership. He becomes "not good if detached." This phrase is also a profound argu- ment for internal national harmony and cooperation. Any segment in our so- ciety which becomes a detached group will detract from the general welfare of the nation. Our potential national strength will become effective in the degree to which each unit of our society fits itself into the whole pattern. Cooperative effort is one of the most vital responsibilities which you will face :ts you enter upon your post high school activities. You can add to your potential strength for social and civic efficiency only to the degree that you are able to live and work in harmony and coopera- tion with your fellow men. Remember, you are "not good if detached." IN THIS WORLD PEOPLE "ARE NOT GOOD IF DETACHEDH Dr. A. Bruce Dennisfon The Superinfendenf .-ff, ,. Principal Mr. Joseph N. Maddocks EACH INDIVIDUAL IN LIFE MUST "Fitting the pieces together" into an in- tegrated life is the problem each individual must solve in order to grow into well-rounded maturity. The educational process involves more than the mere acquisition of knowledge, skill, and competence. lt is concerned with preparing the individual for a life not only of doing, but doing what is good. The truly edu- cated person fits together with knowledge a rugged force of character, and a sensitive ap- preciation of moral and spiritual values. A lofty sense of the true meaning of life must be attained before one can know what is good and what is evil. Among the things we hope you have achieved in the Altoona Senior High School are: l. A reasonable amount of factual knowl- edge and the ability to find informa- tion when needed. 2. Mental humility. Remember, "Knowl- edge is proud that it knows so much, wisdom is humble that it knows no more," and "healthy discontent is the the root of all progress." 3. The ability to think straight and the facility to impart your ideas to others. 4. A sense of the fitness of things so that we repulse the base and vulgar and welcome the noble and refined. As students let me urge you to be a part of the worthwhile things happening around you. Be in that great company of men and women who search for truth and virtue as the greatest challenge faced by man and the most rewarding adventure offered by life. Success to all! LEARN TO FIT THE PIECES TOGATHERH It has been said an outstanding as- pect of our lives is the difficulty a person has in encountering things that are "true", "honest", "just", and "of good report". Magazines and newspapers, as Well as today's novels, radio and television pro- grams, serve up just the opposite. Maybe this is encouraging: it indicates that sordid happenings are unusual enough to be considered interesting. However, such a diet, because of this, leaves us filled but starved. We should try to balance the menu. We should make it our business each day to find something that will nour- ish the spirit, something that inspires. It may be a garden, a poem, a landscape, some music, a good book, a kindness, or thought recalled. lf spiritual elements are provided for, much happiness can be stored up for years to come. What better source of inspiration could one have than this, your 1953 Horseshoe, with its theme, "Putting the Pieces Together". For all that happens is a piece to be fitted into the pattern of our livesy therefore it is well to select those pieces with care when we may. As you leave the Altoona High School and go your separate ways, keep this book to bring back pleasant memories of three fpossibly more-of the best years of your lives. May the lessons you learned while with us serve you Well, and-good luck always! Assisfanf Principal Mr. Edgar J. Brooks Deparfm "IT IS ONLY THE IGNORANT Mr. Block Miss Cofle HUGH G.

S. student body is capably represented by the governing body ot the school, the Senate. This organization has tour members from each class, plus a rep- resentative from each of the major activi- ties comprising its roster. lt is the responsibility ot this group to study school problems, and to make sug- gestions to help in solving them. The Sen- ate took charge ot the sale ot activity tickets, PTA memberships, and the 1953 Horseshoe. They have worked on such projects as decorating the Christmas trees at the light wells, and they also studied the problem of having recorded music played during the lunch periods in the cafeteria. During the past year the Senate has done a fine job ot supporting the school, helping to maintain a good high school spirit and morale, and living a practical lesson in democracy at Work. 20 HOME ROOM REPRESENTATIVES tBoysI First Row: I.

This group under the leadership of Mr. Iohn Yon and with the cofoperation of the student body achieves outstanding suc- cess in every activity, such as the sale of P. T. A. tickets, activities tickets, and year- books. The representatives meet to discuss home room problems and vital issues of the school, to make suggestions, and to plan home room programs. The results of these meetings are transferred by the representa- tive to students in their classes. Every rep- resentative feels his responsibility for the welfare of the school and his fellow students. SPONSOR tinqf Mr. Iohn F. Yon ig A 1- 5 - my-M114 as vm nu ,W .- .

Handicapped by a coaching change in niidseason with Head Coach George Kavel resigning after the fourth ganie of the season and being replaced by Line Coach Robert Thcrnpson, the thirty-sixth edition of the Altoona High School football teain, with a record of two wins and eight losses, went down as one of the niost disappointing in the schools history. Led by co-captain Bob Sill who scored tour TD's on runs of eight, ten, thirty-two, and sixty yards, the Mountain Lions defeated Mount Union in the opening game of the diss astrous l952 season, 31-7, on the Mansion Park grass. The other A.l-l.S. tally was made on a pass from Nick Villano to end lack Sill. Mount Union's lone tally came late in the fourth quarter on a onefyard line dive by halfback Secrest.

S. winning streak came to an abrupt ending as the Wind- ber eleven rolled to a 31-6 win over the locals at Mansion Park. Dick Wagner scored the Lions' only tally on a pass from lim Socey. The play covered 53 yards. Windber was sparked by their ace quarterback, Han- charik, who accounted tor three touchdowns, one on a pass and two on sprints. Continuing their losing ways in the third game the Kavelmen were soundly drubbed by Westinghouse 27-0. Ernie Iones converted three extra points and scored a touchdown on a 70-yard run tor the Pittsburghers. Dur- ing no time in the game were the Lions able to mount a sustained drive and they ended up with only seven first downs to 22 for Westinghouse. nell. Third Row: G. Condon, I. Hyder, I.

Suffering their third straight defeat at the hands of Vandergrift 21-6, the Mountain Lions showed no will to win. Their only six- pointer came on an end run by Bob Sill from one yard out. Shortly after this game Head Coach George Kavel resigned and was re- placed by Robert "Beef" Thompson. Traveling to New Kensington for their next game the Lions were again defeated to the tune of 32-14. Altoona's tallies were scored by lim Socey and lack Sill. Both were on the receiving end of pass plays. Returning to Mansion Park, the A. H. S. gridders came through and soundly whipped Latrobe 25-13. lim Socey scored three touch- downs and Bob Sill scampered 77 yards on a double reverse to notch Altoona's fourth TD. This was Altoona's second win in six contests. The following week Altoona High took their fifth defeat of the season at the hands of Greensburg, 28-6, at the Brown Lion's field. The only bright spot for the A. H. S. rooters was a scintillating 92-yard runback of a punt by halfback Bob Sill. ln the big game of the year Iohnstown crashed through Altoona to the sorrowful tune of 40-U. This was the greatest margin of de- feat since l92l. All Class AA fullback foe Burgo scored five touchdowns for the power- ful Men of Troy. Altoona's net rushing was a minus ten yards. In the last two games of the season, which the locals dropped, they could garner only one touchdown. This came in the con- test with Farrell when Iim lackson recovered a fumble by team mate lim Socey in the Steel- ers' end zone. Although Iohn Hyder regis- tered 99 yards by rushing in ten tries, the Lions left the field on the short end of a 27-6 score.

Opening their season in March with a rec- ord breaking performance in the two-mile relay event at the annual Pitt lndoor lnvitational meet, Coach Paul Adams' versatile l952 track team went on to end Mount Lehanons ten-year reign as champions of the WPIAL relays and recap- tured District Six honors from Iohnstown l-ligh's Trojans. ln addition, the A. H. S. cinderpathers gained eight of a possible l2 first places in the annual Coaches relays at Mansion Park, fine ished first in the third annual West Central Coaches association meet at Iohnstown setting four new records in the process, and copped the Pitt Iunior college meet. Don Prough, who finished fourth in the State meet in the 880, was a consistent winner throughout the year in his specialty, as were Dave Freas in the mile, and the two-mile relay team of Dave Freas, lack Russell, Dave Duval, and Don Prough. Dick Wagner in the quarter mile, and Dick Cox in the hurdles, also turned in several sparkling performances to add to team honors. ff HU V' N " l TIIDNJ 10084 Figures don't lie. but Track THINCLADS HALT MOUNT LEBANON TEN -YEAR WIN STREAK 1952 TRACK SQUAD First Row: I.

With the experience gained this season Coach Adams expects the local squad to make a strong bid to regain the state title in 1953. Cheering Secfion PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE PICTURE Cheerleaders While assembling this book the editor came across a group whose piece in this year's pic- ture popped up repeatedly. Because of their great services, the entire student body gives three cheers to a wonderful group of girls for their untiring efforts at school pep meetings, on the football field, and on the basketball court. With plenty of pep, the cheerleaders really put gusto into the games. ln all kinds of weather these spirited girls kept up the morale of the fans and players. lt was their all-out support which helped our fighting football Lions hit the line hard and carry the pigskin over for many a touchdown. Under the able supervision of Miss Helen Bloomfield the girls were a colorful addi- tion to athletic events. M aioreffes Likewise, the majorettes deserve much cre- dit. These snappy girls, high-stepping down the field with batons twirling and skirts swirling, helped greatly to boost the fans' morale as well as that of the players. Their precision and all around perfection of performance drew favor- able comments wherever they appeared. Al- though this is only the third year of a majorette organization in the school, it already consists of two corps of baton-twirlers who are entitled to rank among the very best. Many thanks and three cheers for the faith- ful and loyal cheerleaders and majorettes who have added so very much to 52-53. lOl CHEERLEADERS Upper Photo: Patty lackson, Barbara O'Donald, lone Man- giacarne, Maureen Kessler.

Baseball ELEPHANT WIN OVER When the Altoona High Elephants downed Kiski Prep, Saturday, May l7, by a score of 13-6, it marked the tenth consecutive victory for Coach Hugh Blacks i952 squad and the first perfect season since l932. Good fielding, timely hitting, and a well balanced mound corps combined to put the Blackmen so far out in front in most contests that only the lohnstown game was so close as to be decided by a single tally, 3-2. The season opened with a 7-O win over Mor- risorrs Cove in which Clair Duffy and Bob Forn- Walt led the attack with two hits apiece. ln the next game Clair O'Connor and Herb Bolger limited Windber to five bingles as the locals tri- umphed, 8-2. 1952 BASEBALL TEAM First Row: Assistfxnt Cfotivti ltoscom- Wiiioiirxiii, C.

Following a layoff due to rain, Clyde Barr and Dave Sim- mers combined their efforts to Whitewash Clear- field, 7-U, yielding a total of only three hits. Windber High's Ramblers proved unex- pectedly stubborn on their home lot, but fin- ally fell before the tight pitching and heavy hit- ting of Herb Bolger who hurled the first five frames and drove in two runs in the 4-2 Win. The return game with Mercersburg saw the visitors enjoying a one-run lead until the fourth when the Elephants exploded for four tallies to put the game on ice, 7-3. Lynn Barger and Gene Critzer shared honors on the mound. ln the next game relief pitcher Lynn Barger had to come to the rescue of Clyde Barr after Beccaria had rallied in the late rounds to reduce an Elephant lead of nine runs scored in the first two innings. The final score was 9-5. Altoona's eighth straight victory was a personal triumph for southpaw lack Ruffing who went the entire route to hurl the locals to a 6-3 win over DuBois. ln the historic clash with Iohnstown Lynn Barger again played the hero's role by limiting the lawns to four hits and tripling home the deciding marker. A seven-run rally in the final two frames enabled the Elephants to overwhelm Kiski, l3-6, and close their season unbeaten.

The staff of the Mountain Echo has answered the chal- lenge by putting out a paper that gives excel- lent coverage of all phases of school lite in each issue. Under the guidance of Miss Mildred Heller, the paper won a second place award at the an- nual March Columbia Scholastic Press Associa- tion Convention, which is sponsored by Colum- bia University and attended by speakers and students from all parts of the country. Three members of the high school publications, Mary Grace Kerr and Harry Kaufman of the Moun- tain Echo staff and Leo Leopold of the Horseshoe staff, attended these sessions. In the effort to give complete coverage of school activities, new columns were added this year. The most noted of these were "Discs 'n' Data," a report on latest records and hits, writ- ten by Dick Reddiclc, and "Girls' League," a column contributed by Nancy Shew and Alice Campbell. The Mountain Echo, along with the Horse- shoe, played host to the Pennsylvania School Press Association in November. During April the paper played host to the spring conference of the Central Pennsylvania Scholastic Press Association. They often do their own typing. ll 5 l They confer about sports events.

The most impor- tant appearance of the a Cappella was at Harrisburg, where they sang for the School Directors' Convention on invitation. The group was accompanied by the orchestra and our local school directors, and all agreed that Altoona High School had had a great day. Throughout the year the a Cappella, acting as representatives of our student body, made various public appearances in the community. They were well re- ceived at the Red Feather Kickoirt Banquet at the Penn Alto, at their State Press Con- vention entertainment, and at their ap- pearance in the May Festival. The senior 22 members ol the group ctlso entertoined ctt the Lincoln Dcty Bctncruet cxnd dt the Mosque lor the Shriners.

Miss Eberles chorus participated in the Music Festival at the laiia Mosque in May and also entertained at quite a few P. T. A. meetings.

REPERTOIRE AND MAINTAIN HIGH STANDARDS Mr. Russel Bohn Mr. Bohn's Chorus One of the very finest choral groups in the school, under the leadership of Mr. Russel Bohn, has been specializing in some of the world's finest choral literature, ranging from Fifteenth century chants to present day blues and classics. This choir appeared in many of the local churches and pleased congregations with their ex- cellent performances of choral music. They presented the school with a fine Christmas program and participated in many civic and P. T. A. affairs. This most active and capable group has a repertoire of almost two hours of singing and is noted for its descriptive and tonal qualities. They deserve and have always won high com- mendation for their interest and achieve- ments. First Row: N. I. Hepner, M. L. Snyder, D. Peters, N. Boslet, P. Lardieri, A. Snyder, E. Lehman, E.

At different assemblies throughout the year members ot the dramatics classes en- tertained their classmates with a selected number ot plays including "Debt Takes a Holiday", "Leapin' Lena", "Peudin' Mountain Boys", "Submerged", "Miss Personality Plus," "Two Crooks and a Lady", and "Por Two Women". The first year dramatics classes during the first semester study such interesting topics as pantomime, mimic, gesture, and body movement. During the second semester the classes study voice production and charac- terization involving rnind and voice. Both groups made tours to radio stations in the city and made recordings ot their voices. Dra- matics helps people to show to advantage their good qualities and to develop poise and selt-assurance. 129 Mrs. Schlutzliammer of the P. T.
