Ambridge schools firmly believe in a victory
through Education. This victory they are working
for does not mean just an immediate victory of our
armies but of a victory which will enable all people
to live pleasantly in a peaceful world. To further
this objective courses have been placed in the school
system which will not only enable our boys and girls
to enter the armed services better prepared but will
equip them with the essentials which we think will
be necessary to work efficiently in the post-war peri-
od. High school students are given courses which
provide culture ability to use leisure time in a
worthwhile manner improve health and fit them
for worthwhile positions. Through an education in
these phases we look for Victory Through Education.

On September the l4th we opened the

llghts transformed the fneld unto bnlluant day
light the band began to play the Star Spangled
Banner and the fans stood at attention whale
of the field After the knckoff the fans con
centratnng on the game cheered as the teams
moved up and down the field passnng puntnng
blocking and runnnng both strlvlng for vlc
tory Due to the fune teamwork and excellent
coachnng our team walked off the fneld that
nnght wnth a score of 21 to O to their credit
the American flag was raised at the north end
The Commencement of the class ot
"42" was highlighted by a speech by Doc-
tor Smith, The Doctor told the class that
he was firmly convinced that we have
rendered a greater service to our country
by remaining in school than we could
have rendered in any other way. He went
on to describe the abnormal times the
Seniors were graduating in and wished
them all luck in their careers
Dr J R Miller in accepting the class
congratulated the graduates on its suc
cess and achievements Dr Miller men
tioned that the graduates were just the
same group that entered first grade the
year he came to Ambridge.
Dr. James Direnzo in brief but im-
portant remarks lauded the class for its
work and introduced the members of the
Board of Education.
Dr. Direnzo, assisted by Miss Katherine
Forcey, Mr. William Bining, Mr. Leonard
Horseman, Miss Rosemary Crime, and
Miss Avis Cauley presented the diplomas

The presentation of the stirring pag-
eant entitled America proved to be the
most interesting impressive and success-
ful Commencement exercises in the his-
tory of the Ambridge High School. The
difference between the l94l-42 affair
and the predecessors was the elimination
of the usual orations and addresses s
the members of the graduating class por-
trayed the confused state of the world and
the events leading up to the present crisis.
After the singing of The Star Spangled
Banner by the audience Kenneth Hulet
in the role of Uncle Sam the Voice of
America told what America stood for
how hard work had made it the top-rank-
ing nation of the world. He also told how
its citizens coming from every part of the
globe made it a better place to live in.
The Chorus sang Ballad for America
which provided the motif of the pageant.
Representing the countries which have
been the victims of the Nazis eight Sen-
iors Joanne Mellott Julia Senata Veron
ict Niklewicz Steve Skapic Margaret By-
cura Jeanne Shippan Harry Bielski and
John Athens in native costumes imper-
sonated Ethiopia China Poland Czecho-
slovakia Yugoslavia Netherlands France
and Greece respectively. Each of the
countries cried out to America to help
them expressing what they were going
through. But Uncle Sam turned a deaf
ear explaining that America was not pre-
pared and that it wanted no more A.E.F.s
or no more war. Hawaii enacted by Eve-
lyn Hartstein then came on the scene
and after her announcernent of what hap-
America rose up and after explaining
that we were in the war whether we
wanted to fight or not introduced a Ma-
rine Soldier Sailor Red Cross Nurse

Keeping the home fires burning has al-
ways been the American woman S work and it
has become doubly important during these
months of the war for the happy and efficient
ly managed home has always been a mainstay
of morale To teach our girls how to best man
age their homes of the future is the aim of the
Home Economics Department The staff by
practical demonstration in cooking sewing and
other home arts teach our girls thrlftlness
neatness and above all efficiency in work
about the home
ln the teaching of their fundamentals the
girls exercise a training which will prove ex
tremely valuable to them in later life but no
less valuable will be the training received in
the development of their individual personal:
ties for the attitude of the woman toward the
home will naturally be reflected in its atmos
phere Refiness of manner and a winning per
sonallty characterize the typical graduate of
the Home Economics Department of Ambridge

The Vocational Department supervised
by Mr Taggart is composed of four di
visions with five shop rooms The di
visions are the Electric Auto Machine

The Electric Shop, under the direction
of Mr, Axtell, studies the principles and
applications of electricity. They are often
called on to work on some part of the
school's electric system.

ance and working of machine tools such

The shops, which occupy the basement
floor of the school building, are located
along an L-shaped corridor. At the short
end of the "L" is located the Vocational
office, and on the opposite side, Mr. Roth-
ermel's Wood Shop. Proceeding from the
angle of the "L" we find, on the left side,
Mr. Wolfe's Wood Shop and Mr. Arnett's
Machine Shop, On the right side is Mr.
AxtelI's Electric Shop. At the end of the
corridor is the Auto Shop.
Many and varied are the activities in

tunity to observe and practice good man-
ners are a part of our Home Economics

The gym classes this year are patterned
after the Physical Fitness Course prescribed
by the Army and Navy. This year's gym
program is more serious than that of former
years because of the many boys who will be
affected by the draft.
The gym work this year is designed to de-
velop coordination, alertness, skill, and ag-
gressiveness, as well as all-around strength.
To achieve these abilities, rope climbing,
tumbling, calisthenics, and military drill are
being taught. In addition, the more popular
sports, boxing, football, basketball, mush-
ball, and wrestling, add spice to the other-
wise uninteresting program. The Obstacle
Course will also provide something novel for
the boys, More serious interest has been
shown by the students toward calisthenics
than in former years. The intramural sports,
such as basketball and mushball, are very
popular, and well participated in.
The pupils, as well as the teachers, know
that today's students are tomorrow's soldiers
and world builders. ln acknowledgment of
this fact, both are striving to make the boys
strong and healthy.
