HIGHWAYS AND BY-WAYS
"Two roads diverged in a Wood, and I-

"less traveled by." Zgliti,
On the superhighway the traveler will find speed, 'ii 'fits

THIS YEAR WE GELEBRATE
THE FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY
OF THE BRUWNSTUNE BUILDING
Mr. Ernest Dejaiffe Mr. Norman Ernest Mr. John Hill
MR. FRANK MARSH
BOARD OF EDUCATION
The nine members of the Board of School
Directors of the city of Altoona have the legal
responsibility for the operation of all city schools,
including our own building.
Besides controlling a 650 employee staff
and almost a two and one-halt million dollar
payroll, these ladies and gentlemen arranged
during the past year for the construction of a
new and modern field house at Mansion Park,
remodeled and re-equipped three home eco-
nomics classrooms, completed the painting and
relighting of the high school building, reduced
the real estate taxkone mill, created a higher
salary schedule for the teachers, and spent ap-
proximately S20,000 for new instructional equip-
ment 'For the high school alone.
Mr. Frank Marsh served his second term as
president of this civic-minded group during the
Mrs. Harold March Mrs. Eleanor Maurer Mr. Paul Reynolds Mr. Roy Thompson
Mr. George Kensinger
DR A. BRUCE DENNISTON
To the Class of 1956 x
Graduation from high school marks a most
significant event in your life. ln the first place it
identifies you as one of a select group because
only slightly more than half the youth of your
age attain this enviable goal. Perhaps the great-
est outcome of this achievement will be the in-
creased opportunity you will have for self-
direction and self-determination. With this
cpportunity will come an increased personal re-
sponsibility for your ideas and your actions. I
sincerely hope that your experiences and lessons
in high school, the guidance of sincere teachers
and the counsel of devoted parents will fortify
you against errors of iudgmentf against conduct
repugnant to good breedingp and against the-
ories and doctrines that are alien to sound
reason, the spirit of America, or the will of God.
MR. JOSEPH N. MADDOCKS, Principal
MR. EDGAR J. BROOKS, Assistant Principal
Since the fiftieth anniversary of this
building comes on a day when some
believe they should get more and more for
less and less work, it is particularly impera-
tive that our young people learn the dignity
and honor of honest work. For this reason
we still insist that our students be diligent
and dependable in their studies. We be-
lieve that it is important for young people
to have a wholesome attitude toward hard
We hope the members of this class have
acquired an abiding faith in our American
ideals, an appreciation of honest success,
ambition, courage in the face cf difficulties,
and resourcefulness towards the ever-
changing problems of the world of to-
May the lessons learned in the Altoona
High School equip you for a future of genu-
ine progress and achievement. Congratu-
Fifty years ago the Altoona youth were
admitted to this building for the first time.
Thereafter a graduating class left on the
final day of each school year to achieve
positions in education, business, the pro-
fessions, and vocational fields.
Each class has found, as the class of '56
too will find, that the day seems to carry
with it a likeness to what has appeared on
this same June day for many years, name-
ly, that each such day is a good day to start
They have found, as you too will find,
that every yesterday seems but a dream and
each tomorrow is only a vision. However,
a today, well lived, makes every yesterday
ci dream of happiness and every tomorrow
can be a vision of hope. Look well to this

THIS HELPFUL LITTLE BOOKLET lS INDISPENSABLE TO SOPHOMORES
Without the Compass sophomores would
be even more bewildered than they seemed
to be upon entering the high school. The
Compass included such helpful bits of in-
formation as attendance regulations, fac-
ulty lists, required credits, book report read-
ing lists, school facilities, and even a floor
plan for those who had trouble with their
sense of direction.
We give full credit to those staff mem-
bers, who worked faithfully to get the book-
let to the press. Each staff member was re-
sponsible for her own duties, which in-
volved consulting heads of departments
and administrators for the latest specific,
accurate information. Upon the completion
of that task the material was assembled
into page form, then checked, re-checked,
and last of all proofread. The Compass was
then sent to the publisher for printing, and
the work of Miss Mabel K. Bowman, spon-
sor, andthe staff was finished. Each sopho-
l more will be presented with a copy of the
MISS MABEL K. BOWMAN booklet 'FOI' OWU personal USS at The be'
Adviser ginning of the next school year.

The College Club, under the sponsorship of
Mr. Timothy Roberts, was organized as an edu-
cational club for college-bound students to in-
form them on such things as entrance require-
ments, courses offered, scholarships available,
and degrees conferred. Membership in this club
is limited to senior college preparatory students.
The college preps met bi-monthly during the

securing the following speakers: Mrs. Ruby
Crumm, dean of girls, Dr. Hugh Black, dean of
boys, Dr. A. Bruce Denniston, superintendent of
schools, and Dr. Robert Eiche of the Altoona Un-
dergraduate Center. Also included in the pro-
gram were two movies, one on St. John's Col-
lege and another on Pennsylvania State Univer-
The scholarship committee, whose aim it is
to give deserving students scholarships, was
headed by Mrs. Crumm and Dr. Black with the
following members: Miss Sarah Bell, Mr. Joseph
Maddocks, Mr. Edgar Brooks, and Mr. Harold
Stong. The committee kept a card file of all
available scholarships. Altogether they had
several hundred. The committee also distributed
fcrm letters to the members of the club to be sent
to the director of admissions at a particular col-
lege to facilitate obtaining college catalogues
The members of the club were given an
opportunity to take the American Council on Edu-
cation Psychological Test, which gave them their
percentile rating for college entrance. The club
was also given information about the dates and
locations where the College Board Entrance Ex-
aminations would be given.

Looks like a mighty good program.
Sponsored by Miss Marie Lauver, the
Ushers' Club plays an important part in
Altoona High School life. Identified by
their maroon and white caps, girls from the

N INAUGURAL OF ANNUAL SERIES WITH JOHNSTOWN AND WINDBER RIVALS
Narrowly missing a crack at the coveted
W.P.l.A.L. Class AA title, Altoona High's Moun-
tain Lions reached a new high in performance
this year under the coaching of Earl Strohm in
compiling a 7-3 record including upset victories
over rivals Windber and Johnstown in the in-
augural of the Silver Scoop series.
This, plus the fact that fullback Curt Plow-
man was named to the all-state team, makes
the T955 season one of the best since the hey-
day of "Snaps" Emanuel and "Sonny Boy" Mil-
Plowman did exactly what his name im-
plies 'From the very first. In the opening rout of
DuBois, 40-6, Curt scored three touchdowns on
runs of eight, 61, and six yards. Bert Stoner,
Lou DeAngelis, and Mike Wherry each tallied
once in one ot the worst defeats pinned on the
Beavers in recent years.
At Mansion Park the following week the
Maroon and White gained an early grip on the
Silver Scoop and took sweet revenge for three
straight previous losses in thumping Windber,
25-7. This time Stoner hit the double figures by
scoring on a twin touchdown effort on sprints of
36 and T2 yards. Terry Ward and Plowman
added insurance markers.
Although Curt Plowman racked up two
touchdowns in the next game on rain-swept
Mansion Park, an epidemic of fumbles, with

the bride instead of the bridesmaid during

Altoona met defeat during the regular

Altoona High's Varsity basketball team of
1957 should be one of its best if the record of
16-4 compiled by the 1955-56 Junior Varsity is
to serve as an indication of things to come.
The Little Lions of Coach Guy Denniston
were beaten only by Windber, 45-37, Duquesne,
63-55, Williamsport, 63-44, and Westmont, 51-
46. Ralph McGirk, high Jayvee scorer for the
year, collected 15 points in the last contest.
The season opened on a sour note in the
Windber loss, but the Little Lions ran up two
straight, lost to Duquesne, and then knocked off
11 straight opponents before losing to William-
sport. Victories came at the expense of Kittan-

McGirk gained high man honors fsingle

against Johnstown in a dramatic 46-45 triumph.
Ralph connected with two foul shots in the last
three seconds to decide the issue.

Here's a rousing cheer for the cheer-
leaders of A.H.S.l lt takes a vast amount
of effort to get that big, enthusiastic re-
sponse at pep meetings and football and
basketball games. ln all kinds of weather,
these live wire pepsters kept up the morale
of the fans and players and helped to spark
the team to victory.
Drilling and rehearsing, leading pep
meetings, and greeting visiting cheerlead-
ers were the duties ofthe group. This year
the girls did an exceptionally 'Hne job and
their untiring eftorts were an important
factor in the success of our athletic contests.
This squad, consisting of nine girls, was
chosen on the basis of citizenship, scholar-
ship, and personality factors. Before school
began, the cheerleaders practiced at the in-
tricate routines required for more than
twenty cheers. Miss Dorothy McGregor

May 28, the 1955 cinderpathers of Coach Paul
Adams finished second for the team title to

Although Western Pennsylvania athletes
dominated the meet, Altoona's Terry Clarke won

Bob Wherry took a second in the half-mile run

him a fourth.
In addition Lion relay runners came in
fourth in the half-mile event and finished third

Earlier in the year the Adamsmen had fin-
ished second in the Tri-State Coaches meet at
Pittsburgh, swept the field in the West Central

N0 FUDGIN' NOW
Tick Ramey chooses sides with team mate Bob Burchtield.
An elephant, they say, never forgets. In
any case Coach Hugh BIack's A. H. S. Elephants
are not likely to forget Friday, May 13, for a
long time. On that date the local tossers
dropped the second game to the Johnstown nine
giving the Trojans a clean sweep of the series
for the first time in many years.
Aside from this dual setback the Blackmen
did a very commendable job, downing their op-
ponents nine times in 14 outings, sweeping both
games with Windber and Indiana and taking
single encounters from Hollidaysburg, Clearfield,
Mercersburg, and Saxton.
The 1955 season was featured by an 11-8
triumph over Mercersburg and a brilliant one-
hitter hurled by right hander Jess Zorger against
Indiana. At one stage the Elephants racked up
a win streak of five in a row which was ended
by an unexpected loss to Clearfield. After a
one-run defeat by Kiski the Elephants closed out
the year with three more triumphs.

CHAMP GIVES GUIDANCE TO GRAPPLERS LEARNING GRIPS

the Altoona High intramural sports pro-

and basketball, while Dallas Webb, junior

Three eight-team leagues playing on
Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, com-
prised the basketball circuit. Approxi-
mately 300 boys participated. All action
started at 6 o'cIock with a twin bill in the
boys' gym and the same in the girls' gym.
Home room 217 copped the championship.
The cage program, in addition to devel-
oping a sense of team work, alertness, lead-
ership, and sportsmanship, attorded all in-
terested boys an opportunity to be active
in athletics. A.H.S. students who were not
varsity or junior varsity team members
were eligible to play.
Intramural wrestling was introduced at
the expense of over 52,000 to its sponsor,
the Altoona School Board. In hopes of fur-
thering the possibility of a varsity team in
the near future, extensive developing per-
iods and the teaching of basic fundamen-
tals were the nucleus of Mr. Webb's under-
taking. Webb is a former intercollegiate
champion from Penn State.

FOSTER GOOD FUN AND PROMOTE GENUINE FELLOWSHIP
The Girls' Intramural Club is responsi-
ble for most ofthe shouting, pounding, and
whistle blasts in the girls' gym. Under the
leadership of Miss Frances McGinnis, the
girls learn good sportsmanship and fair
play in badminton, volleyball, basketball,
dodgeboll, and kickball, playing each
game with enthusiasm and skill.
These sports are open to all girls who
are interested in participating in them after
school. The standing of the girls is based
on the point system. Points are received
for each sport, and o specific number of
points is necessary to earn awards. The
points are totaled from the beginning of a
girl's sophomore year to the end of her sen-
ior year. Participation in all contests gives
the team member full credit, while part
