Each of you is a Very Important Person.
There is no one on earth exactly like you.
You are the sum total of a particular her-
edity, all the experiences you have had,
all the books you have read, and every
dream you have dreamed. Every day
someone thinks of you, watches you, and
is influenced by you. Your education so
for has been designed to make your im-
portance constructive and rewarding. All
your life your importance will increase, not
particularly in prestige perhaps, but in the
number of lives you influence. Remember,
however, importance may enrich-or de-
stroy. You are far more than a birth cer-
titicate, a social security number, a line on
a pay roll, or a vital statistic. You are a
Very Important Person.

Boa rd of Education
The Board of School Directors of the
city of Altoona, who are elected by the
voters and who serve without pay, this
year chose a woman, Mrs. Harold March,
as president of the board for the first time.
These nine board members are respon-
sible for forming local policies for school
operation under the school laws of Penn-
sylvania. ln carrying out their duties they
control a 53,850,000 yearly budget and
670 employees with a 52,650,000 payroll.
Through astute management and intelli-
gent control Altoona now has adequate
educational facilities for all local students
and the lowest indebtedness of any com-
parable district in this state.
Mr. Frank Marsh Mrs. Eleanor Maurer Mr. Paul Reynolds Mr. Roy Thompson
To the Class of '57
Recently I have observed a national
consciousness of the need for conservation
of our natural resources with which God
has so abundantly blessed our nation.
Along with this awareness comes a reali-
zation that our youth constitutes our most
precious natural resource.
This human resource is also being
wasted in that individuals are not utilizing
their greatest potential abilities and apti-
tudes. In this time of critical need for
trained manpower, I earnestly pray that
each of you in the Class of 1957 will have
the vision, the wisdom, the courage to con-
tinue to fully develop and wisely use every
talent with which you are endowed.
MR. JOSEPH N. MADDOCKS

Everything you have learned in the
Altoona Senior High School will become an
instrument of power because you know its
use. You have learned to think, to inquire,
to act, and to evaluate. You have learned
to work with other people. You have
learned to be confident and able. You
should have learned your goal and to
guide yourself accordingly. Remember, if
you are to find rewarding satisfaction in
your work and if your life is to be purpose-
ful, rich, and of high achievement, you
must continue to be a learning, growing
E X , .
A national sales manager ofa large cor-
poration stated recently that his iob was to
"energize people," to stimulate people to
their best efforts. Here we try to energize
our students by teaching them that the nec-
essary ingredients for success are vision,
courage, and faith-vision to see oppor-
tunities, courage to work and struggle for
worthwhile ends, and unbounded faith
that the things we believe in and strive for
will ultimately succeed.
We sincerely hope that you have ac-
quired a broad vision and are developing
to the utmost your abilities and capacities.
We trust you will move with resolution and
insight toward a worthwhile goal. Best
wishes for your success.

Miss McGregor's sixth and seventh per-
iod classes comprise a choral group that is
not so well known as the other choruses,
but which makes up for its lack of publicity
and outside recitals by having a lot of fun
in iust singing.
Approximately eighty boys and girls
experimented daily with harmonies and
part singing, filling the third floor hall with
melody, the more modern sweet songs
being the distinguishing feature of this
group. Among the well-liked songs in their
repertoire were "Carnival Suite," "On the
Street Where You Live," "Young at Heart,"
"Green Cathedral," "Flower of Dreams,"
"Morning," "Count Your Blessings," "Thum-
belina," and "Evening Song."

Sponsored by Mr. Harold C. Wimmer, the
Junior Academy of Science continued its investi-
gations into interesting phases of science with a
varied program during 1956-57.
In addition to regular meetings, this group
made a field trip to the Tyrone Paper Mill and

highlights for the year's activities. As a special
feature, Mr. Earl Haverstick, as guest speaker,
gave a talk on opportunities in science at the
January 9 meeting.
Sponsored by Mr. Timothy Roberts and pre-
sided over by James Herdman, the members of
the 1956-57 Future Teachers of America Club in-
vestigated the features of teaching as a career.
The future teachers planned to visit several of
the State Teachers Colleges to get an idea of col-
lege life. Four student teachers talked to the
group about Indiana State Teachers College. The
club also sponsored two dances on two Fridays
when no game was scheduled.
The Key Club, sponsored by the Kiwanis

The College Club, under the sponsorship of
Mr. Timothy Roberts, is on organization whose
aim it is to better prepare Altoona High School
students for higher education. The membership
consists of seniors who are taking the college
preparatory course, this year numbering about
160. This club makes available to the students

advise the members as to the entrance require-
ments of certain colleges, the scholarships avail-
able in each field, the courses of study otifered by
the colleges, and the degrees received upon
completion of these courses. The dates and lo-
cations ot the College Board Entrance Examina-
tions are published for the members of the club
also. One of the branches of the College Club,
the Scholarship Committee, has as its goal the
presentation of scholarships to deserving pupils.
This committee, headed by Mrs. Ruby Crumm
and Dr. Hugh Black has a file ot all scholarships
available to Altoona students. Form letters are
distributed to the members ofthe club to be sent
to the director of admissions at a particular col-
lege in order to facilitate the obtaining of col-
lege catalogues and bulletins.
The club also olifers its members the oppor-
tunity of taking the American Council on Edu-
cation's Psychological Test. The purpose of this
examination is to give the students an idea of
how they stand in a percentile rating for college

They Assemble To Celebrate Religious Festivals
The Car-Teens Club is comprised of one
hundred and ten students from the driver train-
ing classes. It is sponsored by Mr. Archie Um-
stead, assisted by Miss Marie Lauver. The or-
ganization seeks to stimulate interest in good
fellowship, in better driving attitudes, and in
community driving problems. With mounting
accident tolls in the news every day an organi-
zation like the Car-Teens is encouraging. Inci-
dentally, boys who complete the course success-
fully receive a discount on their automobile acci-
dent insurance rates.
The group holds its meetings each month at
the high school. During the business session,
safety movies, speakers, or panel discussions are
presented. A social hour with refreshments
usually ends the evening.
Each year the club goes on a carol sing to
the hospitals and to Valley View Home. "Come
back next year" has always been the response.
This year the club elected as officers Marshall
Lacroce, president, Joanna Bruno, vice-presi-
dent, William Sauserman, treasurer, Alex Gib-
boney, assistant treasurer, Pat Civiello, secre-
tary, and Barbara Ellen Pegg, publicity manager.
Support of and participation in the athletic
program were the key obiectives of the members
of the Altoona High's Varsity "A" Club, now in
the fourth year and headed by Mr. Cyril Ramsey
and Mr. Carl Graf.
The club annually honors letter winners in
award assemblies for all athletic teams. The
outstanding award during these assemblies in
T956-57, was the Mountain Lion Blanket Award,
made to Michael Wherry.

And Together They Render Service Unto Others
The Ushers' Club, under the sponsorship of
Miss Marie Lauver, is composed of some sixty
junior and senior girls who serve as ushers for
the varied and many AHS functions. Wearing
either maroon or white caps, these pleasant
young women helped to seat fans and gave out
programs at all home football games. In addi-
tion, they ushered for the Language Department
play, the annual show, and the Altoona Choral
Society's annual presentation of Handel's "Mes-
siah." The girls were particularly attractive in
their evening gowns, assisting at both the orches-
tra and band concerts. In traditional white at-
tire, the girls presented programs and conducted
people to their places at Baccalaureate and Com-
mencement, and then formed a guard of honor
for the exit of the graduates.
New candidates for the group are nomin-
ated and elected in the spring by club members.
The girls are captained by Connie Adler and
Doretta Ruggles. Lieutenants are Patty Jaggard
and Beth Kerns, who will automatically become
captains next year.
Mrs. Harbaugh's Nurses' Aides constitute a
club that truly render service. These fifty sen-
iors, who are enlisted from bacteriology class-es,
serve at least eighty hours each working at the
Altoona Hospital as nurses' assistants. All vol-
unteers, these girls in their yellow smacks per-
form necessary tasks in the various wards to
lighten the burden ofthe regular nurses and pick
up valuable information on aseptic practices and
Car-Teens deliver Christmas packages

Three Losses, And Three Ties
Encountering three new teams this year,
the Altoona High Mountain Lions finished
their 1956 season with a respectable rec-
ord of four wins, three losses, and three
ties, with the three tie games representing
a record for AHS fcotball teams.
The 1956 edition of the Mountain Lions
was loaded with talent. Tackle Wayne
Nail was named to a first string All-State
team while end Frank Ammer and quarter-
back Jim Swanner received second team
recognition. The annual Joseph F. Cohen
Blanket Award went to Michael Wherry, a
The Lions opened their season with a
smashing 32-6 victory over DuBois and fol-
lowed that game with a hard-earned 14-0
triumph over Windber. In both games, the
aerial pyrotechnics of Swanner and Am-
mer proved poison to the opponents.
Coach Earl Strohm's crew wasted no
time in trouncing Westinghouse, 33-O, by
racking up a touchdown during the first 30
seconds of the game. This win set the Lions
record at 3-O.
Jim Swanner throws a pass against Latrobe with fellow players blocking
Co-captain Bill Gardner tries in vain to block a pass
Appearing to be invincible, the Moun-
tain Lions received their first setback of the
season when Duquesne upset them, 12-6,
in the first W.P.l.A.L. game for the Lions.
Altoona High's adventure in the W.P.l.
A.L. continued to be an unhappy one. Play-
ing against Har-Brack fcr the first time, they
fought to a 7-7 deadlock.
Two touchdowns in the last minute and
three seconds of play chalked up another
win for the Lions against Latrobe. Faced
with their second deadlock near the end of
the game, Altoona's Wherry and Ralph
McGirk scored rapidly for a 26-13 victory.
ln the seventh game Allentown's Can-
aries unleashed a sharp aerial attack which
kept Altoona High off balance all evening.
They gave the Lions their worst defeat of
the season, 32-0.
The annual Johnstown-Altoona clash
was played during a steady downpour of
rain with the Lions coming from behind to
tie the Troians at 13-13. With a minute
and a half to go in the game, Bob Calise
recovered a Johnstown fumble on the Tro-
ian's 15-yard line. With 58 seconds re-
maining, the score came when Swanner
passed to Wherry, who was in the end
zone. Wayne Nail's extra point try was
wide to the right. The possessor for 1956
of the coveted Silver Scoop, the symbol of
football supremacy between AHS, Johns-
town, and Windber, was to be decided
upon the outcome of this game. Since it
ended in a tie, Johnstown was awarded the
trophy because of its better record.
Again playing in the mud against
McKeesport, the Mountain Lions let an early
21-0 slip from their hands, settling for a

Logan in the final tilt of the season 27-19.
A change of luck for the AHS Juniors

Pepsters Promote Enthusiasm At Athletic Contests
"Victory, victory is our cry .... V-l-C-
T-O-R-Y!" Thus Altoona High's cheerleading
group, under the direction of Miss Dorothy
McGregor, inspired enthusiasm among our fans
throughout the 'football and basketball season.
After spring try-outs, ten lassies were se-
lected to serve with this peppy group, with three
other girls chosen to serve as substitutes. Prac-
tice to put across their repertoire of some 25
cheers began the last week of August. Six new
cheers were added to the collection, among them
the popular "Hello Cheer," "Roar Lions," "Ma-
roon and White, Fight, Fight," "Come on
Through," and "We've Got a Team."
Chosen cn the basis of their citizenship,
scholarship, and personality factors, the pepster
squad was always "right on the iob" when it
came to backing our sports teams in their com-
petitions with other schools. These morale boos-
ters with their maroon and white skirts, white
blouses and sweaters, and maroon and white
saddle shoes and socks were always a welcome
sight at AHS contests.

coach in 1936 at Altoona.
ln the 1956 campaign the Lions won the Dis-
trict 6, West Central Coaches and Pitt Center
meets. They were second in the W.P.l.A.L. re-
lays, and fourth in the Tri-State meet. ln the cm-
nual Coaches' relays, Altoona came out on top.
ln 1956, the half-mile relay team set a new
record every time they ran. This team broke the
440 relay record which was held by Mt. Lebanon
since 1940. The 880 relay record was also
broken this year. Captain Bob Wherry set a new

Compiling a brilliant season's record of ten
victories in twelve contests, Coach Hugh Black's
1956 Elephant nine posted its best mark in re-
Opening the campaign with easy wins over
B.C.l. and Cresson the Blackmen ran into unex-
pected trouble when Hollidaysburg eked out a
9-8 decision and then Johnstown clubbed the lo-
cals into submission, 8-2.
The following week, however, AHS resumed
its victory march by outlasting the Mercersburg
Academy nine on its own field and went on to
close out the season with eight straight triumphs.
Included among these were double victories over
Windber and Clearfield with single wins over
Indiana, Tyrone, and Huntingdon.
Spark plugs in a year in which hitting
seemed to predominate over pitching were Earl
Clouser, Tommy Lane, and Dick Rcimey with the
stick, while Bill Socey and Clouser led the mound
Altoona High's inaugural five-match
venture into the realm of scholastic wrest-
ling proved to be unsuccessful in gaining
victories but valuable in experience
The first three matches of the season re-
sulted in easy wins for the opponents of
AHS. Everett topped Altoona twice, 38-12
and 38-8, while Cresson won the other
match handily, 39-17.
The final two matches of the year were
with the undefeated Hollidaysburg iunior
varsity. ln the first match the Tigers won,
30-15, but in the second encounter Altoona
was leading until the last event, losing the
match finally by the score 24-20 .

taking part in the Pyramid Club or other outside
activities. These outside activities include bowl-
ing, roller-skating, ice-skating, sled-riding, ski-
ing, swimming, hiking, bicycle riding, and horse-
