Review A Year
We have seen the Ambridge High School's eminence in
school affairs rise to new heights during the past year. Remin-
iscent of the days not so far gone are the outstanding achievements
of our successful football and basketball teams, as well as the gay
evenings spent at any one of our many social affairs. Our student
governing bodies, the Student Senate and Student Court, under-
went reorganization periods in which many worthwhile augmenta-
tions took place. The inaugural of a Vocational Guidance Clinic,
one of the first projects of its kind to be employed in Beaver
County, proved to be a huge success. The senior and junior
classes' dramatic triumphs highlighted the entertaining produc-
tions presented throughout the school year. In addition to schol-
astic achievement, the individual activity groups have attained
envied positions and goals to further our heritage of fine accom-
Prcparing for Future Vocations and Avocntions
Wye dedicate this yearbook to our principal, Dr. N. A. Smith,
who has made our school the efficient, smooth-running democracy
that it is. It was through his high ideals and standards that the
curricular and extra-curricular activities of our school have suc-
ceeded so well.

The Senior Class
Seniorsl The last rung on the high school ladder of success! As seniors we
lead the receiving line at the Sophomore Reception and as seniors we romped and
cavorted with Lil' Abner and Daisy Mae at the Sadie Hawkins Day Dance. We
joined with the Juniors and Sophomores to welcome back our old "grads" at the
Christmas Alumni Dance. During this last glorious year our seniors participated
in many activities and held many important offices. Betty Jane Steele, Gertrude
Mackintosh, Delmar Mineard, and Bill Byers were included in the expedition to
Midwestern Chorus. The Student Court continued with John Athens at its helm.
Frances Rosenberger and Rudy Hlista were the chosen captains of the Girls' and
Boys' Patrol. Student Senate came to order at the insistance of the gavel held by
Bill Arnett's able hand. War Savings Stamps were sold by Nick Athens and his
helpers in 104. The proposed Flower Fund was put into working order by John
Athens and the Class Song was prepared under the direction of Julia Seneta. The
juniors entertained us at the Junior-Senior Prom.
An so the three years ended! Now we go to meet the future, whatever it may
be, with the firm conviction that right, not might, will conquer.

"4-2 Class Song"
Class of forty-two, we pledge this song to you,
That you may always hold it safely in your memory
The home work that we do,
The fun and parties, too,
Are pleasant times we had in Amhridge Senior High
So we must gog
The torch of life is bright,
It beckons us to come and guard its lightg
Our class adviser, too
We give our thanks to you,
For helping us to study and to make our stay a joy
And to our teachers true,
We hid our fond aclieug
And so we sadly leave to face our future years.

football squad was bolstered in its efforts by the many junior gridsters. Harry
Ulinslci and Chester Laniewslci were chosen co-captains for the coming year's grid-
iron team. The varsity debate squad was composed of five juniors: Frank Kloiber,
Charles Grosdeclc, Earl Nlalliclc, Williaiix Hnath, and Harry Gahagan. The juniors
presented their first dramatic production, "The W'hole Town's Talkingf' in janu-
ary, 1942. Their largest and most successful social function of the year was the
annual junior-Senior Prom.
The juniors ended their second year in senior high, aspiring to become a great

The Sophomore Class
ln September, the sophomore class was cordially welcomed by the juniors and
seniors at the Sophomore Reception.
The sophomore class this year is one of constant initiative. Speed and
efficiency has been the keynote of this yearls work. School had been in session only
a few weeks when Robert Gray, Dorothy lzalc, and Charles Herter were elected
President, Vice President, and Secretary-Treasurer respectively.
The "Sophs" took an active part in the legislative and judicial branches of
our Student Senate. Later, two members of this class, Jack Taggart and Ray
lVlcNees, held the offices of Sophomore Prosecuting Attorney and Sophomore
Defense Attorney respectively, in our newly organized Student Court.
The football and baslcetball teams were augmented by the services of many
Under the guidance of the class adviser, Mrs. Coolc, this group has steadily
progressed and promises to be one of the most outstanding classes that Ambridge
High has had.

Mr. Shafler's debate squad, consisting of Juniors and Sophomores, worked on
the following question: Resolved-Every able bodied citizen in the United States
should be required to receive one year of full time military training, before attain-
ing the present draft age.
The team consisted of Frank Kloiber and Charles Grosdeck, negative. and
Earl Mallick, Harry Gahagen, and Williaimm Hnath, affirmative.
The first debate of the year was at West View. In January they attended the

The Student Court of Ambridge Senior High, under the student leadership
of Bernard I-irico, completed its organization during this year. Ir will handle such
cases as skipping class, cheating, fighting, stealing, ruining school property, smok-
ing, loitering in junior high school without a valid excuse, violating the activity
plan, perjury, patrol violations, and all cases which the principal, teachers, or
students wish to present.
The objectives of this organization are to enable the students to familiarize
themselves with court procedures, and to foster fair play among the students of
the high school.
Because Mr. Robb was drafted, Mr. Bining replaced him as the court sponsor.
The court may become a permanent organization in our school.

Today the fun and study of the '41-,42 school year is a vivid realization, but
as the years roll away our school days will become but faded memories. Antici-
pating this, we have provided in this book reflections of the parade that has been
this school year. We hope that in later years by reviewing this book you may
re-live incidents of your school days, both tragic and triumphant.

National Honor Societg
To become a member of the National Honor Society is the crowning glory
which every aspiring senior seeks to attain. Membership in the society is the fruit
of doing just a little more than is expected of you during your high school life.
This is the highest recognition given to students who have been outstanding all
through high school. Scholarship, character, leadership, and service, the principles
of the society, are the yardsticks used to measure each student's quality.
Only those students who are in the upper third of the class, according to
scholastic ranking, are eligible for membership in the National Honor Society. The
ten with the highest rankings automatically become members. A list of those in
the upper third is given to each teacher who ranks each as either indispensible,
recommended, not known or disapproved. The results are tallied and the ones
with the best ratings become members after the faculty as a whole has approved of
them. Mr. Leonard Horsman, this year's sponsor, supervised the selecting.
The forty-two students included in the roll of the National Honor Society of
1942 are: Annabelle Amsler, Doroles Anronelli, William Arnett, John Athens,
Nick Athens, Sarah Barkley, Richard Barnhart, David Barr, Ray Boyle, Margaret
Bycura, Dorothy Cherich, Peter Compagnoni, Charles Cook, Emanuel Crasanakis,
Beatrice Dale, Valeria De Maccio, Anna Demay, Sam Gurmusa, Bernard Hrico,
Edward Hrico, Marion Izak, Harry Knafelc, Anthony Kroll, Betty Levy, Irene

Paul Pawlack, Dorothy Rengowski, Frances Rosenberger, Hilda Scarpone, Julia
Seneta, Jeanne Shippam, Edward Supe, Steve Talpash, Thomas Tedesco, Florence
Trimble, Elizabeth Vandenbord, Stanley Vladuchek, Gretchen Warner, and Twila
The National Honor Society should spur the underclassmen on to do their
best at all times. These students have proven their worth and it is up to the future
classes to reach the level gained by this year's class and to surpass it in the future.

The Student Senate is the legislative branch of the student government of
Ambridge High School. Its purpose is to keep contact between the students and
the executives of the school, thereby giving each member of the student body
representation in the government through his homeroom and class presidents.
Bill Arnett was elected president for the school year of 1941-1942. The other
officers of the Senate were Anthony Krol, vice president, Beatrice Dale, secretaryg
and George Pavlakovich, recorder.
This year the Student Court began its work largely through the work of the
Senate and Bernard Hrico. Another Senator, Charles Grosdeck, undertook the
task of revising the activities plan. This plan was designed to give opportunity
for participation in activities to more students than in previous years. Another
activity of the Senate was to assign to certain Senators the chairmanship of various
committees. After this action, all nominees for membership in the committees
were voted upon by the entire Senate.
In March many Senators attended a Student Council Convention held at
South High School in Pittsburgh. There they spoke with representatives of the
student government of other schools in Western Pennsylvania, exchanging plans
with them about such organizations as the Senate of A. H. S.
Cooperating with the Yearbook, the Senate participated in the Senate-Faculty
Day, a basketball game which has now become one of the annual observances in
Another highlight of the year is the Activity Party, carried out entirely by
members of the Student Senate.
Our Senate is respected by all as a really worthwhile activity of the school,
giving students a taste of self-government before they assume the greater task of
governing our nation.

The Assembly Committee selects the programs which are presented to the
students throughout the school year. Fun as well as education is considered in
their selections and, as a result, a well-rounded schedule is obtained.
Eighteen members Lll1dCI' the direction of Mr. Julian Mcwhtvrter faithfully
attended to their assigned positions during the last year. They sold and collected
tickets at all the football and basketball games. They also sold tickets in the halls
of the school for special programs which were presented in the auditorium such as
matinees and special evening performances. The co-chairmen of this committee

Senior Class Plag
On May 1 at 8 P. M., the curtain rose on the three-act comedy, "Ever Since
Eve." Supported by a stellar cast, and produced by dramatic coach Miss Gertrude
Lee, the Senior Class presentation was enthusiastically received by a capacity audi-
ence. Working behind the scenes were the following committees and sponsors:
Tickets, Miss Forceyg Publicity, Mr. Snyder, Property, Miss Cauleyg Usher, Mr.
McWhorter, Programs, Miss Cease, Costumes, Miss Robb, and Music, Mr. Mc-
Cormick. The plot revolved about Johnny fRaymond Boylel Clover, an aspiring
newspaper editor, and his high school journal, "The Penquinf' Assisting him in
his work were his best friend, Spud fGus Babilisj, and an unwanted helper, Susan
fJoanne Mellottj who, through the assistance of Martha fMary Marmackl Willard,
had secured a position on the staff. There was conflict between Susan and Johnny
due to their differing journalistic ideas. ln the midst of Johnny's trials and tribula-
tions, Lucybelle fGretchen Warnerj Lee, a southern charmer, enrolled in the
school and promptly attracted the male population. Among her admirers were
Johnny, Spud, Preston fSteve Skapikj Hughes, the football captain, and members
of the team fSenior Varsity football playersl. Johnny and Spud plan to take
Lucybelle to the prom, leaving Susan without an escort. Johnnyls parents were
typical American folks. Mrs. Clover fl-lilda Scarponel proved to be an under-
standing mother, although Mr. Clover fDavid BarrJ was slightly absent-minded.
In obtaining "ads" through the barter system, Susan and her friend Betsy lSarah
Barkleyj secured a pin-ball machine and a typewriter. Too late they discovered the
typewriter to be a carrier of germs. Johnny and Spud were confined to their
homes with the measles, and the first issue of the Penquin was edited by Susan and
Betsy. Misconstrued items in the personal column aroused the anger of the sub-
scribers. Mr. Quinn fHoward Mermelsteinj, the high school principal, ended the
confusion over an article reporting his marriage to Martha Willard, by overcoming
his timidity and proposing to her. The pin-ball machine brought near-disaster when
it was installed in a restaurant and proved to be crooked. The problem was solved
when the girls' old friend, a gruff but kind-hearted policeman fJames Hopkinsl,
overlooked the matter. The boys, having discovered how insincere and callous
Lucybelle really was, decided to take Susan to the dance. When Lucybelle fluttered
in at the last moment, Susan big-heartedly allowed her to tag along. Thus the
curtain fell on one of the most entertaining plays ever presented in Ambridge
The Kozakettes Club, which consists of all the secretarial practice students,
chose the following as officers: Veronica Nicklewicz, president, Peter Giammaria,
vice president, Dorothy Rengowski, secretarygand John Hettish, treasurer. Miss
Kozak is the club sponsor.
The Kozakettes have been quite active this year. They held a skating party at
Carnot on December 15, a little Christmas grab bag party, a Valentine party on
February 11, and a banquet near the end of the school year.
The future secretaries bowl every other Wednesday. Executives, last year's
club members, Secretaries, Clerks, and Bookkeepers are the names of the four bowl-
ing teams that have been organized. At the end of the bowling season the club
had a bowling party.
The Usher Committee is divided into two groups, one of which is sponsored by
Mr. Snyder and the other by Mr. McWhorter.
Mr. Snyder's Usher Committee worked only at basketball games. The mem-
bers included in this group were: Dorothea Hrynewich, Hilda Scarpone, Anne
Knopick, Naomi Austin, Phyllis I-lulet, Julia Seneta, Margaret Dale, Betty Rizi,
and Beatrice Dale.
Mr. McWhorter's committee, with Beatrice Dale as chairman, ushered at per-
formances such as: Birch, the Magician, the Christmas Pageant, Rubinofps concert,
the Junior Class play, the Senior Class play, and Commencement.

The International Society, a new organization,
has within a year become one of the outstanding
clubs in Amhridge High. It is composed of forty-
live French and Spanish students selected by the
sponsor, lVliss Adams. The purpose of the Socie-
ty is to further a better understanding of the life
and customs of Spanish and French people.
Ar their first meeting, members elected John
Athens as president. The other officers chosen
were Charles Grosdeclc, Nick Athens, and Hilda
Scarpone. A Constitution was formulated by a
committee headed by Bernard Hriccw. Colors and
a motto were chosen by a direct vote of the club
Several times guest speakers visited the meet-
ings, lecturing on such subjects as Nlexico and our
own Spanish Southwest. The Society attended a
meeting of a large Latin-Ainerican club in Pitts-
burgh as a field trip.
During the Christmas season the second year
Spanish class sponsored the Pinata, a Spanish
Yuletide celebration. In February the senior
French students presented a musical program
highlighted by a debate on the subject of French
composers. Debaters were Charles Cook, Valeria
Di lVlaccio, and Evelyn Hartsteing Richard Barn-
hart was master of ceremonies. A carnival, in-
fluenced by the New Orleans Mardi Gras and
supervised by members of the advanced French
class, was the club's final celebration of the year.
The Girl Reserves of our school are affiliated
with rho Wfestern Pennsylvania and Ohio District
in Springfield. Our chapter has a membership of
sixty-live girls and it meets every Tuesday during
the club period. The officers' duties have been
performed by Nlarilou Thomas, presidentg Helen
lfysura, vice presidentg Vera Wess, secretaryg
and Nlargaret Bycura, treasurer.
The club has been helping others this year.
They gave a Christmas party for the underprivi-
leged children, and they were instrumental in
starting a junior Red Cross First Aid Class for
girls of the high school. The pledge of the Girl
Reserves is "I will do my best to honor God, my
country, and my communfty, to help other girls
and to be in all ways a loyal, true member of the
Girl Reserves." Thus we can see why rhi- Girl

The story of the Ambridge gridiron season of 1941-42 is one of the most im-
pressive and long-to-be remembered in the annals of Ambridge High School
With Monaca as the first victim on the roster of the Garnet and Gray, the
thirteen--year-old tradition of an Ambridge eleven always emerging victorious from
opening game remained unblemished. With Captain John Lazorski and tall,
rangy Harry Ulinski playing an excellent defensive game, Victor Frangione aided
offensively by scoring in the final quarter to give Ambridge a 6-0 victory.
ln the second game of the season, the Garneteers had to be content with a 6-6
moral victory as they completely outplayed their highly-touted rivals from Donora.
The lone Ambridge touchdown was made by Captain Lazorski as he raced thirty
yards to cross the goal line after intercepting a Donora aerial.
The Rubenstein men received the seasonls first setback as they bowed to an ex-
perienced eleven from Turtle Creek. The ball-handlers from Turtle Creek smashed
through the Ambridge wall continually, as they scored four times and converted
twice to win by a 26-0 score.
In the first county contest of the season our boys met a fast New Brighton
eleven. Although the Crimson and Gold scored early in the game on a safety, the
Garneteer's surging power came back in the second canto as Kosinski plunged over
from the one yard stripe, and the dependable toe of "Chas" Laniewski making the
extra point. The second Bridger marker came in the final quarter as tackle Mike
Smollnary of Ambridge trapped a Brighton back behind his own goal line. Score
A vastly improved Garneteer eleven came out to face their next adversary.
Displaying some of the classiest running of the season, a new star was found in
small "Clutch" Bombiani. With a fast-charging Ambridge line holding a Beaver
Falls team scoreless, Bombiani and Laniewski rolled up a marker apiece and
watched both conversions split the up-rights for a 14-0 victory.
Facing a powerful undefeated Aliquippa eleven, the Ambridge griclders
reached the senson's peak of perfection as they succeeded in downing their tra-

ditional rivals from across the river by the decisive score of Z1-0. The Bridgers
gave ample evidence of their superiority over the Red and Black as they scored in
the opening minutes of the game with Kosinski carrying the ball after a thirty-five
yard sustained drive. Laniewski's try for the extra point was good. An intricate
new backfield shift again caught the Quippians unawares as Bombiani sneaked
through on a reverse from the twelve yard stripe. Once more Laniewski split the
up-rights for the extra point. Cementing their lead in the final quarter the Bridgers
drove sixty yards to score again with Laniewski making both the touchdown and the
Then came the costly one-point defeat which eliminated the Ambridge gridders
from the county title race as the Bridgers lost to a flashy Rochester eleven by a 7-6
score. Ambridge scored but the slippery oval failed to clear the crossbars for the
extra point. Callela, sensational new Rochester back, came smashing through in the
final quarter to tally for the Rams, and Horzman made the all-important extra point
as the Rochester eleven led 7-6. Ambridge threatened once more, however, as
Laniewski, with seconds left to play, dropped back to the twenty-six yard line for a
place kick. Over eight thousand fans watched the referee nullify this hotly debated
held goal and a Rochester eleven had triumphed over Ambridge for the first time
in more than ten years.
Rebounding from their one point defeat, Ambridge came roaring back to upset
Midland in the closing game of the season by the one-sided score of 53-0. Com-
pletely dominating the Held, the Bridgers did not find it necessary to kick once as
Laniewski, Bombiana, Krancevac, Locke, and Lazorski scored a host of touchdowns
while they kept the Leopardmen from moving the oval farther than the Garneteers'
forty-five yard stripe.
Faced with the difficult task of developing the smallest and most inexperienced
squad ever to respond to spring training, Coach Rubenstein and his aides, Mr.
Snyder, Mr. Hlista, Mr. Rowley, and Mr. Karakitsas, succeeded in hurling one of
the most powerful and most feared elevens ever to don the Garnet and Gray uni-
Although inexperienced at the beginning of the year, the Ambridge gridders
of 1941-42 have succeeded in compiling an enviable record which shall go down
alongside the greatest in the annals of Ambridge High School football.
Especially worthy of note were Seniors Bites, Locke, Cuda, Lazorski fcaptainl,
Bombiana, and Shintowsky in the annual East-West encounter. Finally, our heartiest
congratulations for a successful season to Captain John Lazorski and Seniors Shin-
towsky, Santry, Supe, Cummings, Kostas, Bires, Bombiani, Cuda, Locke, and Smol-
nary, all of whom have played their last game for the honor and glory of Ambridge
Senior High School.

Coached by Assistant Coach Snyder, the Ambridge reserve team was one of
the best in many seasons. Better than their record shows, the reserves played a
hard brand of football all fall with the express purpose of giving each of the re-
serves a chance to participate in actual play and gain experience. The secondaries
showed plenty of spirit and drive although hampered by a small squad at the be-
ginning of the season.
The inexperienced Ambridge secondaries dropped their first game to Sewiclcley
but gaining experience as the season wore on, they succeeded in turning the grid-
iron tables later to defeat Sewiclcley in a return game, and also succeeded in twice
defeating a strong Bellevue eleven. In the final tilt of the season, the Bridgers
played hard luck football as they lost to the Rochester secondaries on a fumble in
the last thirty seconds of play. A few of the boys who stood out this year and will
probably see varsity action next year are Ringer, Coleman, McClure, Wolf, Welling,
Striclco, Kurch, and Jula on the line and Savie, Lojeclc, and Boneski in the back-

The varsity cheerleading squad is selected each year from the cheerleaders'
club. The cheerleading club period is spent in making new yells, streamlining mo-
tions, planning for pep meetings, and football rallies. Not a pep program or new
yell is ever brought before the student body without Hrst having been rehearsed and
practiced over and over again. A
Each member of the varsity squad must have a grade average of C or better, be
in good health, possess a sense of cooperation, and have lots of pep and enthusiasm.
Each must develop a sense of responsibility by taking charge of pep rallies and
and teaching club members all the cheers.
A letter is awarded to each member of the varsity team provided he has had
one year as an active member on the varsity squad.
The squad this year consists of Anne -Ianiclcy, captain, Evelyn Shane fseniorsl ,
Martha Larson, Peggy Wessley, Evelyn Chinchilla, Bill Gulish, lVlarie Sotyrou
Uuniorsl, and Clarence Welsh fsophomorel, and is sponsored by Mrs. Coolc.

With but a single regular, Harry Ulinslci, having put in his appearance for
basketball practice, the 1941-42 squad faced its first opponent in Monaca and suc-
ceeded in winning by a score of 32-28.
Turtle Creek was the next victim and as forward Tom Osso rolled up a high
total of fourteen points the rest of the Ambridge quintet backed him to the extent
of a wide margin victory, 33-11.
Meeting their first reverse of the season, the Bridgers went down in defeat be-
fore Monaca in a pre-season game, as they trailed by three points, 28-31. junior
Eddie Shemelya led the Ambridge court-men as he rolled up twelve points from
his right guard position.
Dropping their second consecutive game, the Ambridge boys bowed to a strong
Erie Academy live by a 33-25 count. Six-foot-four Captain Harry Ulinslci led,
scoring eight of his ten markers in the second half. Doing an about face, the
Bridgers returned the following week to hand the Erie Academy five a two point
set-baclc, winning 35-33. On its final pre-season game, Ambridge had a field day as
it rolled up a 52-24 win over an outclassed Stowe team.
The first league tilt found New Brighton coming to the local court. The
Bridgers, fighting all the way, managed to elce out a 31-28 victory over the scrappy

across the river, i.e. Aliquippa. In the most
exciting game of the season, Ambridge cut
the cords in the last fifty seconds of play to

game, the Bridgers were themselves the vic-

Going into the second half of the W. P. I.
A. L. Section HI race, Ambridge dropped a
43-36 decision to New Brighton as the
Bridgers' defense failed to click against high
scoring, little Lou Peluso, Brighton forward.
Again eliminating Ellwood City, the Am-
bridge courtsters ran up a two basket lead
to win 29-25.
Although Ambridge showed excellent
form as they met their jinx team, New
Castle, for a crucial battle to determine the
Section III lead, the Bridgers were carrying
the short end of the 37-34 score when the
hnal whistle blew. Ambridge scoring power,
led by Laniewski and Ulinski, with twelve
and eight points respectively, was greatly
augmented as the local quintet rang up their
best foul-shooting record of the season, mala-
ing sixteen out of a possible twenty.
Eliminated from the W. P. 1. A. L. cham-
pionship, the Bridge-men nevertheless de-
termined to take the county championship as
they trounced Beaver Falls 32-27. Shemelya
led the scoring with nine markers.
1n the final game of the 1941-42 season
the Bridgers again came through to decision
Aliquippa by a score of 39-29. No less than
five players were waved to the showers via
the four-foul route during the course of the
hectic battle. Sewing up the Beaver County
championship, the locals were paced by Osso

respectively. The Aliquippa fracas was the
last occasion upon which Senior "Fiji,' Fi-

the Bridgers took two in a row, Stowe and New Brighton, by 41-18 and 21-19
New Castle decisioned the Ambridge preliminaries by a one basket lead, 22-20.
The Bridgers' slump continued as they lost their next three contests to Beaver Falls,
Aliquippa and Avonworth by scores of 31-13, 44-21, and 24-15 respectively.

The Ambridge Golf Team, coached by Leonard Rothermel, succeeded in
gaining last year's Section VI, W. P. I. A. L. championship for the second con-
secutive year. Featuring such stalwarts as Williaiia Bowan, Paul Gutowslci, Steve
Furis, John Gabal, James Andrus, Walter Juszalc, and Mike Mazur, the Ambridge
golfers succeeded in compiling a record of six wins against three losses participating
both in W. P. I. A. L. competition and non-league matches. Individual golfing
merit was acknowledged as Williain Bowan and Steve Furis, low stroke average
golfers on the team, tied for twelfth place with scores of 88, while participating in
the W. P. I. A. L. Medal Play Championship at the Westmoreland Country Club.
Those participants who finished among the first seven qualified for the State High
School Medal Play Championship at State College,
Although veterans Williaiia Bowan and Paul Gutowslci have been lost by

The physical education program in the
Ambridge Senior High School is one of in-
terest to students and teachers alike. A
highly diversified program of mass cales-
thentics, drill marches, tumbling, bar-belling,
and such seasonal sports as football, basket-
ball, softball, wrestling, and boxing assure
a varied roster of physical activity. Stress-
ing the necessity of increased physical edu-
cation for the youth of our country, Coach
Rubenstein, director of our physical activi-
ties program, has recently introduced a pro-
gram of elementary military marching drills
With a total of eighteen classes a weelc
and an enrollment of over five hundred and
fifty boys, the gymnasium is a frequent prov-
ing ground for all new exercises or sports.
Coach Rubenstein arouses interest in intra-
mural sports and high school athletics by
giving rhe boys a taste of these activities in
the gym. The resulting interest in a gym-
nastic team, traclc team, and boxing efforts
have been more than a little due to the pur-
poseful and varied physical education pro-
gram in our school.

Yale - Prillcetoll
This all-girls sports event has become the most looked-forward to affair on
the feminine school calendar. Last year the tenth anniversary of the annual Yale-
Princeton affair was celebrated, and between the halves of the annual clash the
captains of the two teams presented Miss Marcella Spahr, the originator of the
classic, with a large birthday cake that was bedecked with ten candles.
One of the most spectacular girls' basketball games ever presented to an
all-girl audience in the Yale-Princeton classics, was the one played on the "1Oth
Anniversary Day." Princeton was leading with an 18-8 advantage at the termina-
tion of the first half, and things began to look rather blue for Yale. Finally, the
Yale cagerettes rallied and were ahead, 24-23, as the final canto began. However,
Adelaide Kowaleska, a Princeton stalwart, made a foul shot and resultingly tied the
score at 24-24. Shortly afterwards the whistle sounded and the game ended.
Score, 24-24. Bowan and Kubia led their respective teams with 12 points each.
The Princeton sextet was composed of Dorothy Bowan, Adelaide Kowalska,
and Anne Sepak, forwards, Helen Ciccone, Elizabeth Derkach, and Bertha Tedrow,
guards. Yale's blue and white uniforms were donned by forwards Elizabeth Kubia,
Jeanne Kuchtyn, and Mary Sapovchakg guards Qlga Jaroway, Dorothy Banks, and
Leading the cheers for the Princeton aggregation were: Betty Flemming,
Marcia Mann, Elene Boggs, Sarah Barkley, and Joanne Mellott. The Yale cheer-
ing squad consisted of Charlotte Taylor, Anne Mae Pribulsky, LaVern Cochenour,
and Dorothy Hovanec.
Recognition letters were awarded to Estelle Hogrefe, Helen Tomley, and
Emma Blazier, who were the managers of the Yale-Princeton classic. The senior
members of the playing teams and the cheering squads also received recognition
letters for the services that they rendered.

The high school girls are given an opportunity to participate in a well-balanced
program of activities during their gym classes. Body building exercises take up a
major part of the gym period. There are the jumping jack, which is an excellent
exercise for good posture, the swing and bend that strengthens the chest muscles,
and then the C. C. C. to strengthen the stomach muscles. There are many others,
hut these are the IhOSt benehcial.
Other sports conducted according to the seasons of the year are mushball,
soccer, volley hall, tumbling, the horse, and baslcethall. Basketball is the favorite
winter indoor sport. Not every girl is a star player, but if she wishes she may play
in the games held after school. The girls are not chosen according to homerooms
or for slcill, but teams are piclced from the three individual classes. Each class
consists of four teams, Red, Orange, Green, and Yellow. These games arouse the
girls' interest in athletics.
The gym classes are conducted under the leadership ol: Miss Spahr and Miss
ldughes. Sportsmanship is stressed in all classes and games. This gym hour, twice
every week, gives the girls a little recreation time and allows them to participate in

The Leaders' Club is one of the finest girls' activities in the school. It trains
its members for leadership. The officers of the Leaders, Club for 1942 are:
Geraldine Larabee, president, Mary Ann Ozmeclc, vice president, and Alfreda
Safyran, secretary-treasurer. Initiation of new members was held on January Z2
in Room 214. These girls were chosen by Miss Spahr and Miss Hughes, for their
gymnastic ability and are the A-1 girls in all sports.
In the fall, when school begins, the girls are anxious to get started on soccer,
so these girls aid Miss Spahr in organizing soccer teams. Intramural games are
played after school and the "All 5-Starn soccer game closes the season. This year
the girls played "Speed Ball" which is similar to soccer, but not quite so dangerous.
Along with old man winter comes basketball, which puts a new flame in the
girls' enthusiasm. Leaders' Club girls are placed in charge of refereeing intramural
games and also those played during the gym period.
Then towards spring, mushballs and bats are taken out-doors to begin several
weeks of good healthy exercise. During this season the Leaders' Club girls help
the gymnastic instructors by umpiring class games.
Besides these seasonal activities the Leaders, Club has regular club meetings in
which they are instructed in the fundamental rules of sports. They also plan
events which occur at intervals during the school year. They held a dance, "The
Leaders' Club Hop," in the study hall.
So, on through the year these girls do their share of leading and drilling in all
sports, setting an example for the other girls, developing a healthy mind, a healthy
body, and a sense of leadership.
