ML! - - To Miss Ethel Althauser, senior class adviser, who so willingly and devotedly guided us through our final year of high school, we dedicate this, the first Bridger. Her valuable iniiuence has pervaded our work and our play. We have found in her the true meaning of an adviser. Q .fefote we e in Time is indeed fleeing. Three brief years ago we entered senior high school, hesitant, yet confident. The time we were to spend in school loomed ahead like some unending dreamy and like a dream, the years have passed more swiftly than we had thought possible. So much has happened in these years. We have shared much together. There have been moments of happy laughter, of jubilant cries, and of sorrowful tears. We have tried, in this our first yearbook, to catch and hold at least a portion of the glowing laughter and cries and to intertwine them with our precious tears. At present, we clearly remember our eventful school years. But with the coming years' that memory will fade until, in later life, they will seem distant and far-off. This is where, we are hoping, the Bridger will prove valuable. Our desire is that it will bridge the years and link to- gether the Present and the Past.

This board, consfsting of Mr. Joseph W. Druzisky as president, Mr. James V. Direnzo as vice-presi- dent, Mr. Ernest T. Larson as secretary, Mr. John H. Brown, Mr. james J. Boyle, Mr. Frank Duzy, and Mr. john Graham,realizes the import- ance of a modern education and has done all in its power to improve our school. We are indeed grateful to our Board of Education. IU 0ur Education w l N-..., Dr. N. A. Smith Supt. J. R. Miller Mr E B Leaf Our Administrators Through the school board our capable administrative staff is selected. The staff is headed by Superintendent Miller, who directs our s'chool policy. He is active in community life and has spent many years in administrative school work. Mr. Leaf is the assistant superintendent in charge of instruction. He is a member of four fraternal organizations. Especially remarkable is his ability to take charge of practically any class of students and to dem- onstrate the most efficient methods of instruction. Our principal, Dr. Smith, is a man well known for his many achiev ments, among these being the service he rendered his country in the World War. An admirable characteristic is his willingness to cooperate with the students by fostering their progressive ideas. Concerning the Class of 1940, Dr. Smith said, "The iniiuence of the entire class has been for the betterment of the school." Miss Halaban, secretary to the principal, has worked efficiently and untiringly in the high school oHice for a number of years. The superintendent's secretary, Miss Esther Baeuerlein, assisted by Misses Yolanda Giammatteo, Elvira Nippes, and jean Knauss, is in charge of the administrative routine of the entire school system. MR EARL M. CASS D re t r f Vocational Education As We Learn Under the supervision of the administrative staff, Ambridge High School stresses the fundamental elements of education: learning and doing. The first of these is accomplished in the regular curriculum of studies, together with special courses offered Ambridge students. These special courses, home economics and vocational training, have rapidly developed into major departments of our school. In the regular curriculum are courses in social science, which are an effort on the part of the administrative staff to prepare the students for a good democratic life. The second element of education-doing! Through the ceaseless efforts of our principal, the extra-curricular program of A.H.S. has become one of the most extensive in the state. School plays, forensic activities, music, and sports have earned our school an enviable repu- tation. Moreover, our noncompetitive activities rank high. Our tri- weekly newspaper, our class meetings, this yearbook, and especially our Student Senate give the students opportunities to develop character and to prepare for good citizenship. A step toward a more perfect administration was made when the plan of advancing home room teachers and sponsors with the students was introduced in 1939. This system permits development of a closer re- lationship between teachers and students. IZ We Train for Industry A basic course in our educational sys- tem is the vocational department, su- pervised by Mr. Cass, director of vo- cational education. Our industrial program is aided by the state and the federal government. The purpose of the program is to lit students for in- dustrial employment. The vocational student's time is equally divided be- tween related subjects and shop work. At present the enrollment is two hun- dred and twenty-five boys, distributed among five shops. To the left of Mr. Cass's office is Mr. Wolf's wood shop. Here the boys learn pattern making, building construction, and job estimation. General school re- pair and construction is handled by this shop. Farther along the corridor is the electric shop, under the instruction of Mr. Axtell. Electrical repair work throughout the Ambridge Public Schools is done by the boys of this shop. The machine shop is headed by Mr. Arnett. The boys do practical machine work on the lathe shaper and the milling machine Next to the machine shop is the auto shop, which is under the supervision of Mr. Todd. After a semester of assign- ment work the boys put to practice what they have learned about repairing automobiles. In a room apart from the shops is the trade drafting department, taught by Mr. Keusch. The work here is largely practical drawing. Blue print- ing for the shops and the school is done by this group. We Take Up Home Economics A complement of the vocational program for boys is the home economics department for girls. This department, which is one of the most fully equipped in Western Pennsylvania, offers a preparatory course for girls who plan to become homemakers. The foods laboratory is a delightful room divided into seven separate units, each of which contains a cabinet sink, a table top stove, and a dinette set. Four girls work in each one of these unit kitchens, preparing and serving wholesome dishes. In the clothing department students turn out their Paris creations. We find them making everything from evening gowns to summer play suits. Important to those girls who are taking u'p interior decoration are the model rooms. The spick and span model kitchen would bring joy to any house- wife's heart. The dining room is very well furnished with an 18th century maple dining room set. The living room suite, with its appealing green and wine color scheme, is an object lesson in interior decorating. A straight home economics course is especially recommended for girls who do not intend to go on in the commercial or academic fields after graduation. These girls are given extensive training in food preparation, clothing, child training, and interior decoration. Other girls may choose home economics as an elective course. This course deals with the fundamentals of the more extensive courses. Miss Feick is the supervisor of this department and has as her assistants Miss Shaul and Miss Robb. I-if And Cultivate Art The Art Department is an important part of the high school curriculum. Three well-equipped rooms with their abundance of light and space are in them- selves incentives to work. Adjustable work-desks, a built-in modeling stand, shadow boxes, gas burners for metal work, and the best of materials are at the command of the artists. Under the direction of Mrs. Trobe, art supervisor, the students work in many different mediums, among which are oils, tempera, water color, litho- graph, charcoal, and pen and ink. The crafts program during the past year included the making of plaster masques, linoleum and copper jewelry, statuettes, and plaques. A main division of the art program is the art appreciation course, the purpose of which is to give an understanding and appreciation of modern art. History of art, fashion design, commercial art and industrial and stage designing are also taught in this course. Among extra-curricular activities engaged in by members of the art department are the painting of scenery for all school productions and the making of prom decorations and posters. Every year, several of our students enter the Beaver County Art Show. This year Helen Kruss, a senior, received first prize in oils. Other honors went to Bill Cummings and Louise McCracken, whose posters were used to advertise the exhibit. Another yearly contest in which art students have been successful is Scholastic Magazine's competition. 15 We Prepare For The Business World The students of our commercial department are preparing to take their places in the business world. Fundamentals of typing are taught to sophomores by Miss Kerschner. Exercises and straight copy material are the main worries of these "children", The commercial student, upon entering eleventh grade secretarial work, takes up the art of book- keeping. And it is an art! Journalizing, posting, and making accounts balance are the brain-twisting problems. Mr. McWhorter guides the students as they struggle through this subject. Eleventh grade typing is taught by Miss Cease, Miss Fey, and Mr. McWhorter. Students are expected to increase their accuracy and speed, to set up mailable letters, and to type invoices and other exercises. It is during the studentls junior year that he also begins to study shorthand, the written language of the business world. At first he learns to read it, then shakily writes some wobbly characters, and later transcribes from his shorthand notes. Miss Miller supervises junior shorthand. Seniors having a grade of B or better in their previous two years' work may take t.1e secretarial office practice course taught by Miss Kozak. Besides class work, students are expected to spend at least two weeks of each quarter in one of the school offices or at the switchboard. Graduates from this department have a good theoretical back- ground, together with plenty of practice, and several weeks of actual experience in secretarial work. With A Scientific Gutlook Perhaps to the uninitiated, the most fascinating rooms in the hi h h l g sc oo are those of the science department. Students ot senior science chemis- try, physics, and biology are instructed by the Professors Taggart, Rice, Serene, and Benkert. The purpose of the senior science course is not to make an extensive study of any one scienceg instead it is to give th d ' ' ' e stu ent a general knowledge of all practical science. New equip- ment has enabled the students of the chemistry laboratory to perform individual experiments this year. A six-foot model slide rule the lar est 1 8 rule of its kind in Western Pennsylvania, is a recent addition to the al- ready well-equipped physics laboratory. The biology department has at its disposal one of the largest and most modernly-equipped rooms to be found anywhere. Experiments have been conducted showin l nt g P 3 development under ideal and under poor conditions. The students have l a so made miniature plant gardens, the best of which are in the sunny bay window. An armadillo, several moles, a raccoon, and many fish have made their homes in the biology laboratory.

We look ahead THE SENIOR STORY Three long years ago the Senior Class, excited, triumphant, and "green-as-grass," entered the senior high as insignificant Sophomores. It was the old senior high building, and the "Slopmores," as they were affectionately named, were sent on many wild goose chases before be- coming acquainted with the mysteries of the building. The oliicers for the year for the first term were Michael Kraynyk, Robert Boyd, and Dorothy Moore: and for the second term Agnes McCallister, Gilda Stefanacci, and Donald Irons. During the course of the year, this am- bitious class participated in many worthwhile activities, such as the "Silhouette," Madrigal, Debate, and Patrol. As the months fiew by, the "Sophs" acquired a modicum of dignity and respect, and looked forward to the day when they would have-a Junior-Senior Prom! juniors! Halfway up the high-school ladder. More respect from those "lowly Sophs',! More activities with the Seniors! The year started off with a bang. The class elected Michael Kraynyk, Alex Kozel, and Don- ald Irons class officers. The change in seasons brought with it football and basketballg the all-school play, "Twelfth Night," had many Juniors in starring rolesg aspiring debaters clamored for recognition: the en- semble chorus, the competing art groups, and girls' and boys' sports were filled with a goodly array of "up-'n'-comin"' Juniors. And lastly, Seniors. Oh hallowed, revered name! "We, the class of "40"-and such like sayin's. As Seniors we paraded, proudly leading the student body after football victories, and as Seniors some of us walked down that golden pathway to opportunity in the installation services of the National Honor Society. Between these two extremes, our Seniors filled many important offices, and participated in many activities. Our leaders for the year were Nick Hlesta, Alex Kozel, and Dennis Carroll. Our debaters placed high in their contests. Our football team became "County Champsu, and was runner-up in the W.P.I.A.L. elimination. Losing only one game, our basketball team won Section III of the W.P.I.A.L., the highest honors ever attained in that section. Prominent seniors took part in the all-school play, June Mad, the Minstrel, and the Yale-Princeton game. So at the close of three years, with mingled happiness and heartache, we can say only: "Let's go, Seniors! The world is waiting for us!" 19 President - Nick I-llesta Vice-Pres- - Alex Kozel Secretary - Dennis Carroll X Q WILHELMINA ACHESON Photography Club, Typewriting Club, Short- hand Club.

President---N k Perr Vice-Pres.---Joh K stas Secretary---Edward Rutk ski In the year 1938 A.D. the class of '41 entered the new senior high school, the first sophomore class to have this privilege. They had their first "get-together" September 14. On October 10 they were received by the upper classmen at the Sophomore Reception. They swung and swayed Tal Williams' way. The officers, Edward Rutkowski, John Kostas, and Connie Shaffer,took charge of the first meeting on October 13. The music department sent Florence Libson and Alvin Bufalini to New Castle to participate in the Midwestern Band Festival on October 20. On Monday, November 21, they gave their first party, the Sopho- more Turkey Hop. Football varsity letters were awarded to Leo Nobile, John Kostas, Ray Ulinski, and John Budimer. Ray Ulinski was the highest scorer in the county. Allen Yeakel, one of' the members of the debate team attended the Student Forensic Congress at California State Teachers' College. Those who had a hand in making Twelfth Night a success were Carl Kerchner, Irene Hyshak, Adelaide Kowaleska, Anna Mae Pribulski, and George Sivy. The girls did their bit in basket- ball during the Yale-Princeton game, as Betty Fleming and Anna Mae Pribulski cheered their teams on to a tie. In the middle of the year Kurt Deuschle became class president. Among homerooms to give assembly programs were Miss Shaul's, Miss Miller's Miss Kerschner's, and Mr. Newton's. Even the Seniors had to admit that the pre-Lenten dance of February 17 was a huge success. Henry Gary's orchestra fur- nished the music, and a hilarious fioor show was given. On February 23 a class meeting was in charge of the newly elected president. At the meeting Dorothy Banks was elected receiving secretary and John Frynkewicz vice president of the science forum. The varsity cheer- leaders added Alfreda Ryzowicz and Irene Kulbacki to their list. Many earned the right to attend the activity party on April 28. Alvin Bufa- lini, Valentine Ciccone, and Florence Libson represented the A.H.S. in the Beaver County Band Festival. Their activities for the year were ended on May 20 at Kennywood Park. 45 Is Continuing Still Nick Perris, John Kostas, and Edward Rutkowski were elected to guide the class of '41 through their junior year.

President---R ha d H Secretary---Antho y Krol Making their debut in 1939 in this "domicile of knowledge", better known as the Senior Hi, the Sophomores were given a "hardy" if not "hearty" welcome by their upper-classmen. The newcomers who, as "freshies' ' in Junior Hi, were accustomed to "dishing it outf' rather than "taking it", found it rather tough going at first, but soon became used to the antics of the veteran inhabitants. Although made the target of the upperclassmen, the Sophomores proved that they were made of "sterner stuff." Miss Forcey, to whom the Sophomores were assigned, was at a loss to know how to handle this huge "bunch of green kids." "Time heals all," however, and the "Forcey Kids" numbering 479 in all, were soon adopted into the huge family of Ambridge Highsters. Seeming to favor the male contingency, they chose the following to head their class: Richard Hood, president, Dominic Montagna, vice-presidentg an Anthony Krol, secretary. The Sophomores turned out "full blast" and received their first im- pression of high school frolic at the Sophomore Reception, held in their honor. The "Sophomorons" fa title which the Seniors gave themj were not long in entering the social whirl and held the "Sophomore Shadow- Shuffle"-sans Seniors and Juniors! Furthermore, much to the surprise of the "uppers," the Sophomore lasses, with the greatest of ease, "snag- ged a stagv for the Leap Year Dance.: They were no slow bunch, those Sophs! Every class has its share of talented studentsg the Class of "42" was no exception. The Sophs were especially blessed with dramatic talent. In the opera "Martha" Delmar Mineard was given one of the leading roles. Raymond Boyle, Ralph Caplan, and David Barr proved their acting ability as end men in the Minstrel. Also making their debut in the Minstrel were Mary Kay Brown, Mildred Narkevic, and Elsie Bla- narik, who demonstrated that their feet had rhythm. Bill Cummings and Kenneth Hulet gave stellar performances in the light comedy "June Mad." Among the promising young artists in the Sophomore class were Louise McCracken, Edwin Kwiatanowski, and Bill Cummings. The "Rubinoff" among the Sophs was Frank Klimek, aspiring young violinist. Mary Marmack demonstrated her talent at the piano. Tak- ing an active part in oratory were Howard Mermelstein, Chester Prince, and Richard Hood. 49 Has Hardl Begun Mary Ann Ozimek was the only Sophomore cagerette to crash the Yale-Princeton line-ups. Bruce Keusch brought his camera along and acted as all-round photographer, while Billy Byers tugged along his "gee-tar.', The Sophies also boasted a line crop of athletes. The grid- iron stars were Benny Chiaverini, Paul Paletti, and George Hlopek. To the Class of '42 also goes the honor of having inaugurated the Sophomore Forum Club. Raymond Boyle was elected president, and Julia Seneta secretary. Margaret Bysura represented the Sophomores inthe Student Loan Association by acting as treasurer of the committee. Benny Chiaverini, Mike Kostas, and Joe Doyle comprised the Sopho- more board of directors. Kenneth Hulet was the only boy to receive a position on the twirling squad. One can readily understand why the Class of '39 was so eagerly wel- comed by their new alma mater. They're great kids, those Sophs! MISS FORCEY Top row: W. Arnett, V. Robovsky H. Kubicki, R.

This year the group, which was formerly known as the Student Council, adopted the name Student Senate. The Senate is composed of the presidents of each home- room and class, with a faculty adviser appointed by the principal. The members of the Senate must maintain a grade of B- or above in four subjects. The officers of the Senate this past year were Donald Irons, president, Bernard Rogoff, vice presidentg Agnes McAllister, secretary, and Miss Ruth Matteson, adviser. The Senate chooses the committee members and chairmen who make up the student committee system used in our school. The chairmen are appointed by the president with the approval of the Senate, while the committee members are nominated and voted on by the entire Senate. The eleven committees are Assembly, Club, Social,Homeroom, Boys' Sports, Bulletin Board, Scholarship, Finance, Usher, Publicity, and Lost and Found. Their work culminates at the end of the year in an activity party given for all students participating in school activities. This party is planned annually by the Senate. The major accomplishments of the Senate during this past year were the establishment of an honor study hall in which students study without faculty supervision, the formation of the Ambridge High School Student Loan Association, a plan for student controlled assemblies, and a special bureau to investi- gate damage to school property. It has been found that with able leader- ship student self-governrnent can be a successful project. 56 As Leadership And Scholarship Unite Scholarship, leadership, character, and service are the four cardinal principles upon which the National Honor Society is based. On April 1, the high school faculty cast their votes for aspiring candidates. They marked the students as indispensible, recommended, not known, or dis- approved. Only those who ranked in the upper third of the class were eligible for membership. Votes were tabulated by the sponsor, Mr. Serene, and a special committee of teachers. The fifty-six members of this year's chapter of the National Honor Society of Ambridge High School were installed in May at an impressive and appropriate ceremony, during which the four principles were ex- plained. On the roster are Marguerite Antonelli, Harvey Burr, Alice Eielski, Andrew Bires, Doris Buchanan, Cleo Bloom, Kenneth Canonge, Dennis Carroll, Ray Clerc, Sophia Demay, john Dnistran, Betty Droz, Caroline Droz, William Droz, Helen Druzisky, Robert Duzy, Madolyn Fletcher, Theodore F rynkewicz, Helen Halaban, Carolyn Hamrlik, Harold Hartling, Reed Hetherington, Nick Hlesta, Paul Hoko, Robert Holets, Lois Jeanne Howarth, Donna Hughes, Donald Irons, Dan Karas, George Kisiday, Michael Kraynyk, Helen Kruss, Paul Kuncio, John Kurelich, Carolyn Lambie, Elizabeth Maceross, Dorothy Mann, Agnes McAllister, Betty Mae McCracken, Rosemary McCrory, Dorothy Moore, Eugene Moran, Grace Palmer, Chester Rosenbauer, Bernard Rogoff, Georgiana Soboslay, Nancy Stauffer, Gilda Steianacci, Olga Towcimak, John Thom, Elizabeth Urda, Eugene Vandenbord, Ann Vernak, Betty Vlasic, Veronica Vlasic, and Lester Wagner. Officers were selected at the first meeting. Those chosen were Olga Towcimak, presi- dentg Michael Kraynyk, vice presidentg Donna Hughes, secretary- treasurer. Membership in the National Honor Societyiis a challenge, for it marks those honored individuals as outstanding, and sets a standard for them to uphold. Class of 1940 members have pledged themselves to go forth from A.H.S. striving continually to serve, to lead, and to build character. 57 We SILHOUETTE Top row: M. Marmack, L. Johnson, V. Vlasic, D.

Students especially interested in journalism make up the staff ofthe Silhouette, which is sponsored by Miss McNees and Miss Trembley. This is the largest organization in the school. Its purpose is to publish tri-weekly, a school newspaper. A prospective staff member must have the recommendation of his English teacher and must write a try-out article assigned by the sponsor. If the article is satisfactory, the student becomes a reporter. Writing, editing, typing, soliciting advertising, and proof reading are a few of the jobs which must be done before the paper is printed. The distribut- ing of the paper, the duty of the circulation staff, comes last. A tribute should be paid to the "makers and doers" of the A.H.S. journal, the Silhouette. High feeling among the students, determination of class officers and student senators, the efforts of senior class adviser, Miss Althauser, and assurance of iinancial stability influenced Dr. Smith in his decision to allow the class of '40 to publish a yearbook. Assisted by a committee of teachers, Miss Althauser selected an able staff. Each senior room was represented by at least one staff member. Nancy Stauffer, editor-in- chief, worked with her assistants directing staff activities. Hub of the yearbook's wheel of progress was room 315, senior headquarters. Be- cause willing helpfulness was the by-word of every staffster, that wheel moved swiftly and smoothly. 58 X fi Z Yew" QM IQ 13 And Take Part in During the three years which we have spent in high school, we seniors have participated in many dramatic productions. The first opportunity which we had as sophomores to appear behind the footlights was in the all-school play "Charm Schooln. The two selected as members of the cast were Carolyn Lambie and Helen Drobnak. Their fine performances helped make the play a definite hit. After our "hegira" from the old building, our dramatic program was stimulated by new equipment and better facilities. Shakespeare's comedy, "Twelfth Night" was the all-school play that year. Sir Toby Belch, portrayed by Bernard Rogoff, and Sir Andrew Aguecheek, played by Eugene Vandenbord, created a sensation by their antics. Other Class of '40 members in the supporting cast were Carolyn Lambie, Ray Clerc, Kenneth Canonge, Robert Duzy, James Taggart, and Don Irons. The first opera in the history of our high school was produced in No- vember of our senior year, when the music department presented "Martha". The seniors in the principal roles were Marguerite Anton- elli, Mildred Bowan, Eugene Vandenbord, Carmen Ross, and Robert Duzy. Many seniors were included in the mixed chorus. The opera was a musical and financial success. Mr. McWhorter's plan of presenting 'outside' programs at a cost of only two cents per student was introduced and proved to be very suc- cessful. Among the programs of this type were a glass blower, a wrestler, a magician, and several lecturers. Dramatics 1 if .1 4 A ' J J W .1 'J . -J I , Ill! ff' I 1 I A Singers In the First Ope a I A H S A previously untried type of school production was inaugurated with the presentation of "Minstrel Days". This, the first all-student pro- duction, was directed by Dorothy Mann and James Klimek. The music and program arrangement was done entirely by students. Reed Hether- ington was a perfect interlocutor and foil for the gags of the senior end- men, Andrew Bires, Bernard Rogoff, Kenneth Canonge, and Eugene Vandenbord. ' A novelty play, "Pierrot and Pierrette", was given in assembly by members of the dramatic class. Cleo Bloom was a charming Pierrette and Donald Irons a conceited Pierrot. Ray Clerc portrayed the role of matchmaker. Another assembly play presented by Miss Lee's dramatics class was "Box and Cox", a one act comedy, one of the most enjoyable programs of the year. Donald Irons, Ray Clerc, and Marguerite Antonelli com- prised the all-senior cast. "June Mad', the all-school play, climaxed the 1940 dramatics pro- gram. The four seniors who had stellar roles were Elizabeth Urda, Steve Sabol, Reed Hetherington, and Carmen Ross. The trials and tribu- lations of high school students were enacted and finally solved, but only after many comic situations had arisen. This play culminated the dra- matic activities of our class. 61 We Study Vocal And Instrumental In addition to our extensive vocational program, Ambridge High is proud of its music department. This department numbering over three hundred students, includes the choral group, the orchestra, music ap- preciation classes, and the band. In the choral group there are two hundred and fifty vocal students. Of these students, the forty best are selected by Miss Parson to become members of the Madrigal Club, and from this select group are chosen those students who participate in forensic contests. The entire club took part in the Midwestern Chorus and sang for the Music Club and the Woman's Club. Senior members provided baccalaureate and com- mencement music. The Men's Glee Club, also a part of the choral group, is selected by Miss Parson. One hundred students of Miss Par- son's vocal classes participated in the outstanding project of the music department, the presentation of the opera, "Martha". An ensemble, consisting of fifteen voices, an octet, a male quartet and a soprano soloist, were selected for forensic competition at California,Pennsylvania. The ensemble, including Margurite Antonelli, Dorothy Banks, Elizabeth Urda, Mildred Bowan, Eva Waslo, Lois Johnson, Catherine Shoop, Carolyn Lambie, Robert Duzy, Nick Perris, Carl Kerchner, Eugene Vandenbord, Kenneth Canonge, Carmen Ross, and Joe Jezewski placed first. The octet, with Marguerite Antonelli, Irene Hyshak, Sara Baiardo, Lois Johnson, Katherina Babich, Robert Kartychak, Steve Sabol, and Kenneth Canonge placed second, as did the quartet comprised of Car- men Ross, Nick Perris, Eugene Vandenbord, and Joe jezewski. Our soprano soloist, Marguerite Antonelli gained fourth place. In addition to her choral groups, Miss Parson conducts music appreciation classes. The students of these classes study the lives and works of famous com- posers and learn to appreciate beautiful music. Mr. McCormick conducts the high school orchestra consisting of thirty pieces. The orchestra provides music for the high school plays, commencement exercises, and special assemblies. Under Mr. McCormick also is our high school band of seventy members, including the drum major, a twirling squad, and color bearers. The highlight of the 1940 band program was the Midwestern Band Festival of March 15-17. More than one hundred and fifty students from twenty-two different high schools came to Ambridge for this fete. Seven musicians represented our band in the festival. As a fitting climax to the three days of band activities, Mr. McCormick was elected president of the Midwestern Dis- trict Band Association. 6?

Early in the season Ambridge won the Washington County Cham- pionship by defeating Donora High. One of their outstanding triumphs was the victory over Cleveland Shaw, the Ohio high school team which placed fifth in the nationals in 1939. After defeating four Beaver County teams, their consequent county championship qualified them for Forensic League competition at Penn State, April 13-15. Here, the affirmative team defeated Waynesburg, East Pike Run, State College, and Monesson. The negative team de- feated Waynesburg, California, and Saint Vincent, but was defeated by Monesson. By winning second place in the Pennsylvania District con- tests, the A.H.S. debaters became eligible to compete in the national finals at Terre Haute, Indiana, April 29 to May 3 . A compilation of the seasonis record shows that the affirmative won 13, lost 1, and participated in 11 non-decision debates. The negative won 13, lost 3, and participated in 12 non-decision contests. 64 And To Spend Our Leisure Wisely They Pl Ou Club Sched le In addition to power of expression, worthy use of leisure time is taught through the club program of our school. The wide variety of clubs en- ables each student to choose one which particularly appeals to him. At the beginning of the school term, this is signified by Iirst, second, and third choice on a club slip. The club committee assigns a definite num- ber to each club. First choice is respected as far as the individual quota permits. Tuesday is oliicial club day. Each club meets in its designated room, and the meeting is conducted by the oiiicers. Parliamentary procedure is used in conducting club meetings. Miss Cauley, club supervisor, is assisted in her work by the club com- mittee, Ralph Wagner, chairman, Lounell Boggs, Helen Halaban, Do- lores Goscinski, Carol Armington, Michael Kraynyk, Evelyn Hallas, Regina Hilger, Mildred Petkash, Madolyn Fletcher, Richard Barnhart Dorothy Cherich, Dorothea Hovanec, Elsie Blanarik, and George Sivy. Among the many duties of the committee are the collecting ofthe ab- sentee slips, assigning students to club, and planning new clubs. Clubs help train members for future vocations. Silhouette prepares high school students for the field of journalism. Those interested in the aerial profession gain experience through membership in the airplane club. The newly formed Future Teachers' Club supplies valuable in- formation to those who wish to make teaching their career. Ambridge is noted for its democratic club system. In fact, there are two clubs which have no faculty supervision. Student sponsors have entire charge of the meetings of both Fencing and Photography Clubs. We are very proud of our varied and extensive club program. 6.5 ur Club Activities Train Miss Feick's Girl Reserves stand for cheerfulness of service and ex- cellence of character. Among other activities directed by President Rosemary McCrory have been scrapbook making and hiking. Repre- sentatives of the A.H.S. chapter attended one of two Girl Reserve con- ferences in Wheeling, West Virginia, and one in Springfield, Ohio. Because of its high scholastic entrance requirement and its sincerely educational purpose, the Local Historical Society, sponsored by Miss Cauley, is one of Ambridge High's most revered institutions. The so- ciety is sponsoring an attempt to restore Logstown and has been invited by Allegheny Archeological Chapter No. 1 to participate in a scientific exploration of that same early settlement. Other club undertakings have been a preparation of genealogical data charts, a trip to Washington, D. C., and the annual banquet held on April 30. Miss Lee's newly organized Radio Club is an active group. During the past year the members, with the aid of their President Jack Rosen- field, collected material on "the anatomy of radio." Other projects were the construction of a radio set and a trip to Station W.J.A.S. in Pitts- burgh. During football season, the Varsity Club, sponsored by Mr. Ruben- stein, studies and practices new grid plays, while during basketball season a similar program is carried out in the Hoof sport. Mistakes made in past games are reviewed, and plans are made to correct them. To il- lustrate his ideas, Coach occasionally uses diagrams and movies. For Service! . . .

Phntn Club l Dramatic Life And Some of our best warblers belong to the Popular Songs Club. Mr. McWhorter sponsors the canary clan, which, with its 125 students, boasts a larger membership than any other club. A valuable member is Mary Marmack, the pianist. Mr. Arnett's Bowling Club is divided into leagues and teams, with live or six people on each team. The team which wins the greatest num- ber of games during a thirty week schedule becomes the champion and wins the prize. Miss Forcey sponsors the "children's" forum. The object of this group is to discuss questions of interest to the Sophs. Ray Boyle is chairman and his right-hand man, or rather, woman, is Julia Seneta. There are thirty-five members in this club at present. However, a de- cided increase is expected next year. The Future Teachers' Club was organized at student request. Miss Fey, sponsor, selects for discussion among the members topics which pertain to teaching. As yet the club has a small membership, but hopes for a larger enrollment in 1941. The student sponsored Photography Club was organized by Bruce Keusch and is dedicated to the proposition that what our school needs is more and better look-at-the-birdie fellows. Among their '40 projects was Silhouette and Minstrel picture work. The Game Club gives many champions an opportunity to shine in their favorite contests of skill. The purpose of the club is to develop sports- manship. Ping-pong, bridge, five hundred, and Chinese checkers are some of the more popular games. Mr. Taggart, sponsor, charges each person a small fee at the beginning of the year for the upkeep of these games. The club is made up of forty-one highsters. It's My Jump . . . Game Club 69 Participation in Civic Tri-Sig Club, under the sponsership of Mr. Bining, aims to teach its members how to enjoy themselves socially. To be eligible for member ship, a student must be able to cooperate with other members. To criticize other students' writing and to improve one's own writing- are the objectives of the "Quill Club", sponsored by Miss Kerchner. Voluntary writing previous to application for membership is the only requirement. Poems, stories, and'sketches are criticized during club period. Those writings which are considered best are included in the Quill Magazine which is published several times yearly. The Science Forum, under the direction of Mr. Benkert, promotes an interest in science. It supplies an opportunity to discuss scientific pro- gress and aims to contribute to science programs of the school. The members provide movies and promote trips and projects of a scientific nature. Among its many undertakings during the past year have been a field trip to Pittsburgh and the construction of a telescope. The Shorthand Club, sponsored by Miss Miller, gives an opportunity for advanced commercial students to try out for awards. The fraternal name of the club is the "Order of Gregg Students". Mildred Shaw re- ceived an award for typing fifty words a minute. Archery enthusiasts, following the example of their Sherwood ancestor, Robin Hood, have taken to the woods. Mr. Rice and President Charles Cain have directed the making of bows, arrows, and targets during the past few months, and now nature claims them for bull's eye practices and contests. l 70 . ,L pu. 0 W?

Throughout the year minute plays are given in French and Latin. The purpose of the group is to further the members' knowledge of Latin and French culture. The Leaders' Club, sponsored by Miss Spahr, has as its members girls who excel in athletics, character, and service. During meetings, these "sports in shorts," presidented by Jeanette Zwatty, are taught routine gym work so that they may assist the instructors during class periods. This year, by means of several money-making projects, they purchased garnet and gray uniforms. Closely connected with the Leaders' Club is the Junior Leaders' Club, under the sponsorship of Miss Hughes. The Fencing Club, a comparatively new group, sponsored by Bill Kiernan, Paul Stewart, Donald Musgrave, and Lester Wagner, is devot- ed to the objective study and active practice of fencing, the sport of kings. The soil enthusiasts of Miss Shaul's Gardening Club do very interest- ing work. Discussions of newspaper articles in horticultural subjects are carried on during club periods. Other activities include the study of various cut flower arrangements and the conducting of question bees. The girls made a trip to Phipps Conservatory, Pittsbutgh. Novel craftsmanship is the work of the Hobby Club, sponsored by Mr. Robb. Beaded pocket books, bracelets, and rings are some of the things made by the girls. The boys made leather belts and watch fobs. 73 Or Take Up New The College Research group devotes itself to the objective study of the many different types of business and academic colleges. Under the direction of Miss Cease, sponsor, and Harvey Burr, president, the club has compiled a virtual gold mine of information by collecting catalogs and pamphlets. Students having questions concerning colleges may be- come associate members, and frequent meetings are held to supply the requested information. The Chess Club holds contests among all the members to determine the champion. Leo Kokoski became "King of Chess" in the Ambridge High School after a strenuous battle with Eugene Moran, the former champion. The club, sponsored by Mr. Dodds, played and defeated Sewickley High during the year. On the basis of scholarship and leadership, the efficient library assistants are chosen. This organization has been changed from an extra-curricular activity to a classroom credit subject. One of the projects this year was the completion of a file of catalogues from every college and university in the United States. The members of Miss Robb's Chef Club enjoy numerous activities during the club period. Among these are learning simple techniques of food preparation, proper selection and care of clothing, and good man- ners. A tour through the Heinz Plant gave the boys first hand infor- mation concerning the future for chefs in commercial food industries. The Boxing-Wrestling Club, sponsored by Mr. Serene, is developing skill in these sports among the "Cyclone Kids" of the high school. Dur- ing club meetings boxing and wrestling matches are held in the gym. One night each week is set aside for those especially interested. 74 Looking Forward . . .

They have sponsored several exhi- bition contests, and a few active members have entered state and national model clipper contests with success. Mrs. Trobe's Art Club meets weekly in our studios on the third Hoor. Because her brief program of making visual aids for class rooms was a success, Mrs. Trobe intends further developing the plan. Soap sculp- turing, fashion designing, and cartooning are among the other projects which members have done. 76 For Art's Sake With Wings . . .

Mr. Keusch is in charge of the Publicity Committee, and Richard Hood is his assistant. Mr. Axtell directs the Stage Squad with the help of Captain Eugene Moran and co-Captain Paul Kuncio. 77 Camera Viewing These Care Sponsored by Mr. Benkert, the Safety Patrol is one ofthemost impor- tant groups in Ambridge High School. It is concerned with the safety of the students in front of the school, at nearby crossings, and at the For Our driveways. During the football season, special patrol groups are on duty. Our efficient safety program results for cooperation of this group. Safgty The officers of the outside patrol are as follows: captain, Carmen Rossg lieutenants, Dan Karas, George Benko, Robert Bucci, and Pete Riccardi, sergeants, Edward Ochman, Steve Matuch, Frank Pavla- kovich, Fred Perich, Rudy Breletic, and Joe Stasny.

S. football season started off with a bang as the Garnet and Gray aggregation upset the powerful Erie Tech eleven by a score of 13-0. The boys from up north never threatened our goal,whi1e the Bridgers kept the ball marching down the Held most of the afternoon. Halfback Rakas opened the Bridgers' scoring on a reverse from Ray Ulinski. Our second touchdown was made by Chester Kamzelski. Running our visitors ragged with reverses and laterals, A.H.S. sound- ly trounced Monaca, 34-O. The Bridgers kept their opponents backing up during most of an extremely warm afternoon. Monaca succeeded in making 1 first down, while Ambridge chalked up 13. The scoring was divided among Rakas, Ulinski, Karas, Spadefore, Paletti, and Hlopek. The following Saturday, the Garneteers played host to the strong team from McKees Rocks, and paced by Anthlony Rakas, who scored twice, A.H.S. won its third straight, 27-0. 82 -f . BML. 5 zirifffa-i,.. , Once again it was the "Great Wall," the Ambridge line, which con- stantly thrust the Rox backward. Yardage gained was heavy for our boys, while McKees Rocks found it very tough to gain ground. The quest for football honors was continued as A.H.S. travelled to Reeves Stadium and overpowered New Brighton, 12-O. The game was not spectacular, for there were few lengthy gains. The Bridgers scored both touchdowns following 65 yard marches, Ray Ulinski and George Hlopek finally going over. The comparison of teams can more fairly be shown inthe fact that N. B. made only 3 first downs, while the Bridgers measured off 13. Four straight! The "Great Wall of A.H.S.," heretofore unscored on, finally permitted an opponent to see what it looked like beyond the last white line. Bea- ver Falls became the first team to regislter a score against the Bridgers when a wide-awake Tiger scooped up a blocked punt and raced across, standing up. However, the rest of the game was all Ambridge, and the final score showed Ambridge 215 Beaver Falls 13. Five straight! The Garnet and Gray of Ambridge met and defeated the Red and Black of Aliquippa on October 28, 13-7. In the first half, Ambridge dis- played the power for which it is known, as the Bridgers kept the ball deep in "Quippa" territory during the entire canto. It was Ray Ulinski who climaxed two of the Ambridge drives with touchdown plunges. Aliquippa turned aggressor in the second half and the Bridgers were victorious only after they had staved off a late rally. Score: 13-7. Six straight! FOOTBALL Top row: B. Cheriavini, R. McCreary, A.

The Rams pro- vided some real competition for a while, but the Garneteers were the better team. Ray Ulinski continued his great scoring drive as he registered both touchdowns. Once again it was the "Great Wall of A.H.S." that featured the game. Seven straight! Displaying more power than they had shown throughout the season, Coach Rubenstein's gridders snowed Midland under, 19-0, on November 4, to win the Beaver County champion- ship. Nearly 8,000 fans witnessed the dazzling array of reverses which com- pletely baffled the Midland Leopards. A.H.S. piled up 17 first downs to Mid- land's 6, and gained almost three times as much yardage. Ray Ulinski scored the first two touchdowns, and in so doing, won the county scoring title with 48 points. Anthony Rakas registred the Bridgers' final score, which placed him third with 42 points. This game finished the regular season for Am- bridge. The Garneteers had the splendid record of 8 wins and 0 defeats, making them one of the two undefeated Class AA teams in Western Pennsylvania. These 8 straight wins brought Coach Rubenstein's record at Ambridge to 78 won, 14 lost, and 5 tied in 11 years. The 1939 Bridgers were his sixth un- beaten team here at Ambridge. But then came Waterloo! On No- vember 25, 1939, A.H.S. met Jeannette in the Clairton Stadium for the Cham- pionship of Western Pennsylvania. The Jaw Hawks struck viciously on the first play, sending their fleet little quarter- back straight through the Bridgers for 95 yard touchdown runback of the open- ing kickoff. That jaunt spelled DOOM for Ambridge. The Bridgers battled for the rest of the game, but could not cross Jeannette's goal line. The game ended 6-0. Thus, another of Ambridge High's great grid teams passes into history, but not into oblivion. The names ofthe '39 Bridgers will live long in the hearts of Ambridge folk. Especially to be re- membered by his classmates will be Captain "Champ" Carroll, who, even though his body was not able, never- theless led his team into every combat with the spirit of a great leader.

Fittingly enough, it was Captain Anthony Kubek who scored Ambridge's first point of the 1939-40 campaign. High-scoring "Rus- ty" Jurkowski sank the first Held goal. Leetsdale was our second victim. A.H.S. had little trouble in winning, 37-19. Ambridge met the powerful Erie Academy live at Erie in contest number three, and neither team was victorious. After an extra period, the game was called a tie, 35-35. A.H.S. won the next two, beating Taylor Alderdice 49-18, and McKees- port, 43-42 Section III Title Donora gave Ambridge its first de- feat of the season. The Bridgers seemed to have lost something, for they failed to click throughout the contest, finally losing, 42-40. Then, led by the famed Longnecker, Erie Academy invaded Ambridge and administered the Bridgers' second con- secutive defeat, 34-29. Section III competition was tough this year, as it always is. However, the A.H.S. Bridgers proved their superiority by twice defeating every team but New Castle. Beaver Falls was first, and Ambridge won over the Tigers, 19-17. Next, led by Paul Gutowski's 10 points, the Bridgers upset the favored New Castle team, 30-24. There followed three "breathers," in which "Rusty" Jurkowski's play sparked his team to victory. Butler was defeated to the tune of 33-25. New Brighton followed, and lost, 46-22. The Garneteers traveled to Ellwood City and walloped the Tubers, 41-29. Then came the big game with Ali- quippa. It was the most thrilling fray of the season, and was won by A.H.S. in an overtime, 27-25. The "sudden- death" extra period ended when Andy Matika flipped in the winning goal. Six more Section III battles followed. The Bridgers nosed out Beaver Falls, 22-21, and walloped Butler, New Bright- on, and Ellwood City, before meeting Aliquippa. Once again the Garneteers were too good for the 'Quippians. The final score was 30-26. This ended Section III competition, with Ambridge winning the title, with 11 wins and 1 loss, a new Section III record! Thus, A.H.S. entered the W.P.I.A.L. Tournament. But the Charleroi Cougars stopped the Bridgers at the start, win- ning a first round 26-17 victory. How- ever, Ambridge regained much of its prestige, for Charleroi went on to win the championship.

Joe Papasodero We Have an Extensive The Lionhearted Leopards of Miss Lee's home room captured the high school basketball championship when they defeated the Snyders in the Final game, 27-21. The Lee's eliminated six teams, the Serene's, 29-9, Shaffers, 18-8, Fey's, 26-17, Cook's, 20-19, Shaul's, 28-16 and the Snyder's. The Lees presented the best all- around team in the tournament. Cap- tain George Kisiday jumped centerg Harry Rengowski, and Paul Durniak both were high scoring forwardsg and Mike Delizio and Don Irons led the defense in their positions as guards. The Lees averaged 25 points to their op- ponents' 15. There were other good teams in the school. Prominent among these were the Senior Finalists from Mr. Cook's home room. Paced by Ted Ziolkowski, the Cook's were hard to beat, and fell only to the Lees. The leading scorer in the tournament, Ralph Wagner of the Newtonls, led his team to the Junior championship by defeating the Shaul's, 36-10. His aggregated point total was 98, an average of 20 points per game. The Snyder's, a group of scrappy Sopho- mores, forced their way to the Finals by defeating the other Sophomore teams and one Junior entrant. Lou Taddy was the spark-plug of this team. The high school intramural program is directed by the Boys' Sports Com- mittee, headed by Chairman Bill Mc- Henry, and sponsored by Mr. Michael Serene, who deserves the greatest credit possible for his efforts to serve the boys of A.H.S. Intramural Program No longer can the girls of the high school be called the "weaker sex? For- merly content to be mere spectators, they now insist on being active parti- cipants in vigorous sports activities. Their program, at present, is as broad and diversified as that of the male con- tingent. Among the sports included in the athletic curriculum are basketball, mushball, soccer, and volleyball. All girls interested may participate. After a hardy season of intramural competi- tion each sport is concluded by an all- star game. Two teams made up of the best players are chosen, and they "light it out" to determine the better team. During the summer season the lassies are kept busy "dusting off Aunt Min- nie's Dresser." Mushball is the seasonal interest, and the girls have fun Hbattin' the ball around." Soccer makes its de- but at the First sign of fall. Soccer fields are marked off, shin guards make their appearance, and then the gals start "kicking',. When cold weather sets in and one must remain indoors, basket- ball proves to be the popular sport. The Yale-Princeton classic at the conclusion of the season draws an enthusiastic crowd. It means more to those "fems" than the Rose Bowl game or the World Series. With such a varied program the high school "sports in shortsn are never idle. Our Girls Play Soccer and This year's All-Star Soccer Game proved to be an exciting event. The Navy team composed of upper-classmen was defeated by the score 8 to 2. Since the Red and Yellow Teams, composed of a Junior and Sophomore group, battled to a tie, it was decided that both teams should compete against the Senior Navy team. The victorious Junior-Sophomore team consisted of the followingg Red: Captain Banks, Allen, A. Jarowey, Bowan, Jasler, Hale, Derkach, O. Jaro wey, Spolish, Mellott, Sapovchak, Ma rovich, Johnson, and Hladiog Yellow Captain Ciccone, Hrenowich, Kubia Kowaleska, Burka, Dale, Erdelyn, Ted row, Pastelak, Graham, Yerega, Lara bee, Kolesin, Sotyron, and Solomich. The defeated Senior Navy team con sisted of: Captain Tallarita, Kapusta Shoop, Howarth, Hughes, C. Droz Druzisky, LaBarr, Ceschia, B. Droz and D. Mellott. Stage The Yale-Princeton Classic The ninth annual Yale-Princeton classic, climaxing the high school girls' athletic program, proved to be one of the fastest of the series of games. Twenty players, made up of the best performers from the A league, com- prised two squads. The Princeton team consisted of Captain L. J. Howarth, P. Tallarita, B. La Barr, T. Vasilik, E. Derkach, O. Towcimak, M. Spolarich, J. Burka, H. Rosensteel, E. J. Ceschiag while Yale was represented by Captain J. Zwatty, H. Engelhardt, E. Kubia, M. Shaw, O. Jarowey, C. Shoop, H. Druzisky, M. A. Ozimek, C. Droz, and H. Ciccone. Staging a comeback after a poor start, Princeton won the classic with a 28-23 victory over Yale before a capacity crowd of feminine rooters. Yale started off as if they were going to make a run- away race of the game, being in the lead 13 to 5 at the end of the first quarter.

Continuing their sen- sational team-work, the Tigers scored 10 points to 3 of Yaleis. Although Yale out-scored them 7 to 2 in the final quarter, Princeton emerged victorious. Captain Howarth was the leading scorer for Princeton, While Pauline Tal- larita followed with 7 markers. Captain Zwatty and Elizabeth Kubia shared the scoring honors for Yale. The Eli-Tiger meet this year dis- played more enthusiasm and excite- ment than ever before. Cheering for Princeton was led by Carolyn Hamrlik, Betty Fleming, Mar- cia Mann, and Marilyn Marti, and for Yale by Mildred Bowan, Dorothy Mann, Anna Mae Pribulsky, and Char- lotte Taylor.
