His elementary school education was derived from the ,Baden Public Schools, but in his 9th grade, he entered the Ambridge School System. In two years and a summer session Bob completed the three-year requirements for graduation. His extra-curricular activities included: International Club, Morse Code Club, Patrol, Silhouette Advertising Committee, and Science Forum. Beside his intense interest in studies and activities con nected with the school, Bob wrote poetry, plays, and entered writing contests. A few days before Bob was to have left for the University of ments at the Blessing home. An explosion occurred which resulted in Bobs' death on October 19, 1945. We miss Bob, both as a friend and classmate, but his memory shall long remain with us.

THE BOARD OF EDUCATION The Board of Education is largely a policymaking body responsible to the public for the efficient and economical operation of the schools. The members are elected for a period of six years and meet regularly once a month. Frequently, however, special meetings in addition to their regular monthly meetings are held. The Ambridge Board of Education is composed of six standing committees which usually meet before each regular meeting to consider the business pertaining to the work of each of the respective committees.

BOYS' GYM The physical education program, this year, was similar to the former ones. The classes were held twice a week and one of these classes was devoted to physical culture. The other day the boys participated in various other sports and games in which they were very interested. Some of the activities were basketball, touch foot- ball, and a new game called usideline basketballl' introduced by Mr. Drake. In the warmer weather the boys went out on the obstacle course and the track. There were also marching drills, designed to acquaint the students with the various com- mands and marches that are given to men in the service. This varied program, under the direction of Coach Rubenstein, helped attain the sportsmanship, physical Htness, and mental alertness, strived for. ,718u, GIRLS' PHYSICAL EDUCATION In general, physical education includes fundamental skill of vigorous sports in the different seasons, development of coordination, rhythm, body conditioning and playing group and team games. The fundamental skills of sports are taught by our physical education instruc- tors in mushball, soccer, basketball, and volleyball, and in some type of calisthenics. Development of coordination is an objective in the program. Playing of certain groups and team games and calisthenics for agility, rhythm, apparatus and tumbling aid in this development. Using the various skills taught helps the girl develop coordination. Rhythm work consists of tap dancing, folk, square and social dancing. Response to command and alertness have been stimulated by marching and heart and lung power, so important for endurance, have been increased by scout pacing the track. Associations with classmates and teammates in dressing rooms, in physical education activities, and sports help to build desirable and wholesome attitudes and afford opportunities for expansion of personalities. In the sports and physical education program there is a challenge for each and every girl-the challenge to overcome an inferiority complex, and build a new personality with self-confidence and self-reliance., -19.- H SILHOUETTE EDITORIAL STAFF First Row: N.

Under his guidance and advice this committee planned many enjoyable programs. During the course of the year the committee organized several variety programs. These con- sisted of various talented students from our high school. The members of this committee took part in the opening exercises of the programs. Their duties were: to read the Bible, to lead the Hag salute, to pronounce the Brotherhood Creed, and to read the announcements. They also chose the sacred and patriotic songs to be sung.

This was done by having floortallcs about the different countries, singing their native songs, and by learning their customs. These projects were prepared under the competent guidance of Miss Sarah Adams who was the club's sponsor. Although the club consisted of boys and girls from each department in the school, many were from language classes. They planned an all Mexican dinner and a sightseeing trip of places that have a foreign element, in order to make it easier for them to visualize foreign countries. The officers of the club were: President-Leroy Cummings, Vice-President-Patricia Barnhartg and Secre- tary-Gwendolyn Reader. Now that the world is at peace, and newer methods of transportation are bringing all countries closer together, it is necessary to increase our knowledge of them. For this reason we believe the International Language Club has done a fine job and should be continued.

The main squad consisted of three seniors, three juniors, and two very promising sophomores. One of the first highlights of the year was the Student Congress which was held at California State Teacheris College in which four students participated. On January 5th, Amhridge High had the privilege of acting as host to many schools from Western Pennsylvania and Ohio when the first tournament of the season was held here. The members of the Ambridge Chapter are also registered members of the N. F. L. and the State League which has been resumed after a lull of four years. The officers for this year were as follows: President-Dolores Bohren, Vice-President-Harry Green, Secretary-Norma Jane Woods, and Treasurer- Louise Leyerzaph. The question for debate this year was Resolved: That All Able Bocliecl Male Citizens of the United States Should Have One Year of Full- Time Military Training On or Before Attaining the Age of 24. SPEECH This year for the first time, a new type of activity was introduced in Amhridge High called "Speech." Throughout the season many tournaments were attended and in these the students of the speech squad participated in such fields as Humor- ous Declamation, Original Oration, Dramatic Declamation, Oratorical Declamation and Girls, and Boys' Extemporaneous Speaking. The Speech Squad is also enrolled in the National Forensic and the State League. Throughout the season several members have appeared before different civic organizations in this town. The new activity has met with much interest and enthusiasm and we can expect much from it in the coming years. -31- SENIOR CLASS HISTORY Plese, Gregorek, Hartman, Vincenti After eleven years of struggle, toil, and fun, we of the Class of '46 have become seniors. Although it seems that all our work was done in vain, we have accomplished a great many things. As Sopho- mores we learned to control our tempers when addressed as 'cSloppy-Sophsgl' we entered into activities and in a short while we were really wel- comed into the Senior High by the Sophomore Reception. Tn our junior year, we had a wonderful time at the Prom which we gave for the seniors. Under the direction of Mr. Laing, we presented "The Late Mr. Earlyf' one of the best in the his- tory of the Junior Class plays. This three-act comedy was enacted by the following: Louise Leyerzaph, Lawrence Gahagan, Lorraine Prus, Elaine Marti, John Sinolko, Michael Zakarian, John Kucaba, Lillian Griffith, Betty Jean Arnett, Caryl McNees, Robert Cirka, A1 Hallaman, Trene Dash, and William Fagula. Now that we are seniors, we are really buzzing around. On Febru- ary 1, we presented the Junior-Senior dance in honor of the juniors. As members of the Band, Madrigal, Glee Clubs, and Orchestra, we seniors have won quite a good reputation in the music field. By editing the Silhouette and Yearbook, we have really produced some good reading material. Our debators, especially the seniors, are doing a grand job under the direction of Mr. Shaffer. The football players deserve a lot of praise for their outstanding performances. The basketball players came through in fine style. On the whole cur class advisers, who are: Miss Adams and Miss Alt- hauser, during our Sophomore year, Mr. Lauf and Miss Reaghart, during our Junior year, and Miss Adams and Mr. Desanzo, during our Senior year, can be proud of us, since we have been the lead- ing pupils in the Student Senate and other student organizations. Our Class Officers are: Matthew Hartman, President, John Vincenti, Vice-Presi- dent, Mary Lou Kesner, Secretary, and Steve Gregorek, Treasurer. Several of our senior boys have entered the service and others are expecting to go soon, thus as we enter a future full of uncer- tainty, we look back and remember the good times we have had in senior high school.

THE SOPHOMORES After being the big shots in Junior High, the sophomores felt good when they arrived in Senior High. But soon they dis- covered that they were not the boss any more but just 'Slop- mores." When they were almost veter- ans, they were formally wel- comed by the juniors and seniors at the sophomore reception. Under the direction of Miss Forcy, Mr. Mattuch, and Miss Duffy, the sophomores entered into the life of our senior high Bezuk, Walko, Yee, Miketa with great enthusiasm. Those chosen as their leaders were: Joseph Walko, Andrew Miketa, Molly Yee, and Bob Bezuk, as president, vice esident, secretary, and treasurer, respectively. This class was represented on the football field by Richard Hunt and Lawrence lVlcCandless while Joe Shapert, A1 aman, and Robert Kosis took over on the basketball court. Bob Bezuk, Orlando Loshiavo, and George Sprock took rt in both sports. Our basketball manager, Ruben Bogosian was a member of this class. In other activities, such as the band, orchestra, clramatics, and the vocational minstrel, the sophomores took an tive part. The sophomore class was off to a grand start and its future promises to be one of the brightest. Q ATT NT' T A T T-Ntlfg T'.'TT 'TT ag as "". K +9-T . 1 t 3 5. E f ' k A e , -F V- K .5 1 it .z K.

Anil'-P' 1351 ,-71Z Q, '51 SOCCER One of the most exciting activities this year was girls' soccer. This sport attracted thirty-five sophomores, eighteen juniors, and fifteen seniors. Games were scheduled on days when the weather permitted, and pick-up teams were organized for these practices. An all-star game was scheduled and the best players were chosen to participate in this event. Unfortunately the coming winter weather prevented this game from being played.

The Bridger eleven, composed mostly of green boys ranging from the ninth grade through the twelfth, started the season with a rather low opening game tally of 12-0 over the Class A school of lVlcKees Rocks. The first score was made in the second quarter by Jamery, who intercepted a pass and raced 55 yards down the field, the second score in the third quarter by little 117-pound Bambiani with a 27-yard run to the end zone. That game showed that the boys had "possibilities," but the high hopes were soon shattered by the results of the next three games.

The worst defeat of the season was suffered by the Rubensteiners when the New Brighton veterans piled up the score of 25-O before 3,000 disappointed Ambridge fans. However, that failure did not entirely demoralize the boys for they knew they were still green and had a lot to learn. -73- FOOTBALL First Row: Moranz, Knopick, Mayer, Rutel, Kissiday, R.

Fourth Row: Coaches-Barth, Rubentein, Drake, After a weekys recuperation, the Moe-men vigoriously attacked the Beaver Falls Tigers with undying faith on home ground. Although trounced by the visitors, the team felt inspired by its developing power that held its foes at bay with a close score of 13-7. The tally made by the Garneteers was by Bezuk in another of his quar- terback sneaks from the 1-yard line. Mraovich kicked the placement. The next gridiron struggle was the climax to the teamis story. The result that Ambridge swamped Ali- quippa by a 36-6 count was undoubtedly the most unexpected upset of the entire season. Due to the strong backing of the student body, to the unrelentless drilling by Coaches Rubenstein and Drake, and to the bitter rivalry between the two schools, the Garnet and Gray boys made the trip to the opponents' grounds bent on putting up a fierce battle. Before a crowd of 10,000 fans, the Garneteers gained the lead during the first quarter. In the second frame, they were still on the offensive and were piling up points so that, at the end of the half, the score was 16-O. The spectators awaited a powerful counter-attack by the Quippans at the beginning of the third period, but again, it was the Ambridge team that poured on the heat. Although the Quips scored six points in that period, they paid heavily for it in the last quarter. That victory by the Ambridge High lads was attributed, not to luck, but to the expert skill in management and maneuverability of everyone connected. Touchdown were credited to Bezuk, Knopic, Mayer, Kisi- day, and Despinesg and a fieldgoal to Mraovichg but, they were only possible through the teamwork of the entire squad. Spurred to victory by the previous game, the now experienced boys from Ambridge overcame the Rochester Rams. In the first period of the game, Mraovich kicked a fieldgoal. Bezuk also tallied with a sneak play across the line. The second quarter gave both teams seven points, Rochester by Nocera, who ran 77 yards, and Ambridge by Bezuk in another sneak play from the 1-yard mark. The Bridgers then defended the tally of 16-7 through the rest of the struggle. Awakened to its invincible power, the Bridger team added another feather to its cap when it journeyed to Sharon ground and returned with the score reading, '!Ambridge 19-Sharon 13." In the first quarter, Bezuk crossed the line on a sneak Dlay. The second period made another score for Ambridge when Jamery scooted around left end on the Statue of Liberty play, and Mraovich connected on the placement. In the third frame, Bezuk made another of his quarterback sneaks across the line. The Sharon boys made good in the last period, with two touchdowns and one placement to their credit. To end its grid season favorably, the Ambridge High eleven swamped Vandergrift by a total of 33A13. Mayer opened the scoring with a 61-yard dash to the end zone. Minutes later, Tony Frangione also tallied one as he received a short pass over the goal. Vandergrift came back in the second quarter with Spaniel cutting around left end to score. The third period gave six more points to Ambridge via another short pass to Tony Frangione. The last period of the last game ended with two more touchdowns for Ambridge-one by Bezuk and one by Moranzg and one touchdown for Vandergrift, made by Minarcin. With a record of five wins and three losses, the Ambridge team completed its grid season. Thus ends the story of an underdog team that became a success. Those lettermen who have played their last football game for Ambridge High were: Ray Frangione, Tony Frangione, Ed Baran, Bill Span. Mike Despines, Andy Mayer, Jim Vincenti, and Vic Janicki. --79... lsr . A .I Nl h - M: -nf-' 1 5 A f if 1 za , E U . . ' 4 5. f ,, "sk A 0 V r . ' h pf f .1 Y xi 5 f . + wg , ,f if ' , Q' vgpagf.

The evidence of the teamls earnest playing is shown in its excellent record of 18 games won and 3 lost. Also doing their hit were two capable boys from last year's Reserves-Bill Kissiday and Ed Stanislcy. In order to get warmed up for the W.P.I.A.L. league games, the Ambridge High Bridgers felled seven opponents in pre-league games. The first Ambfidgq 60 ,,YYY,,,, Beaver Falls 31 Amlsridge 30 ..

High scorers were Lefty Stepaniclc with 10 points and Captain Vic Janiclci with 8 points. Again Stepaniclc, with a total of 16 counters, led the Amhridgeites to victory to the tune of 39- 29. This time it was over the Donora Dragons. Greensburg was next on the list, so the local lads journeyed to the opponents' Hoor and knocked off a winning score of 37-34. As a substitute game to replace one cancelled by Allegheny, the Bridgers welcomed the quinet ...., 81 Y, from Moon Township. The Townshippers, how- ever, were sent home on the tail end of a 49-21 score as Stepanick and Jamery copped 17 and 14 points, respectively. Sewickley was the next victim to feel the impact of the Ambridge brigade. The neighbor lads returned to their domicile all wrapped up in a 51-19 defeat. Contributing greatly to this was Henry Iamery with a total of 17 points to his credit. From up the river a new opponent came to involuntarily sacrifice itself in order to build up the growing reputation of the local lads. It was the Taylor Allderdice team, trailing behind with 25 points while the home-town heroes piled up 52. A second contest with Greensburg showed im- provement for the Bridger team. Knopic's 15 points and Stepanick's 13 points paved the way for the victory of 42-28. With a record of seven wins and no losses in the pre-league games, the A. H. S. squad opened its W.P.I.A.L. Section III race by beating New Castle with a close score of 34-33. Knopic and Moranz, together with many of their special set-up shots, led the Garneteers to a 42-39 victory over the Ellwood City five. Ambridge met its first setback of the season when the Tudor Lewis coached boys from Farrell succeeded in their try for a win. The final Hash on the scoreboard showed 37-40 in favor of the opponents. Unleashing their wrath caused by the setback, the Bridgers swamped the New Brighton quintet by a tally of 52-33. In this game Stepanick, Am- bridgels southpaw pivot artist, made his high score of the season by gathering 27 points. This is just two points short of the W.P.I.A.L. record. The Garnet and Gray next took Beaver Falls over. The game ended 60-31 with Moranz, Janicki, and Knopic working hard to obtain 14, 13, and 12 points, respectively. The Sharon five lost a close game to Ambridge. The opponents went home with 26 points of a 30-26 score. Ambridge captured the Section III lead by overpowering the previously undefeated Lippe- coached Quippans. Moranz and Stephanick, both ranging a height of 6' 22", led the attack which ended with a tally of 42-30. With a great reputation and a bright future, the local lads started the second half of the league games by defeating New Castle 42-33. Ellwood City put up a hard fight and gathered 34 counters, but still was unable to top the Am- bridge score of 36. The local high school basketball team gained revenge for the previous setback of the season by trouncing Farrell with a nine-point lead. Kno- pic,s 15 counters and Stepanick's 10 counters helped greatly to administer the score of 39-30. New Brighton, under Coach Roark, was next to be trampled under the impregnable onrush of the mighty Ambridge basketeers. Captain Vic Janicki, with scoring honors of 18 points, led his fellow players to a Section III record lead of 40 points. The final score was 55-15. The next game on schedule was to be with Beaver Falls, but because of an electric shortage, the game was postponed to a later date. The Sharon team, striving for championship, came to the local floor bent upon a victorious outcome. So it was. Although the Rubensteiners piled up 25 points, the visitors bettered it by a count of 26. It was in this game that Jamery, one of the "regular six,', injured his knee. The Bridger high team was all but problema- tically put out of the Section III title race in W.P.I.A.L. as the Quips laced the locals by a 41-32 score on the winneris floor. Lloyd Cable, the Quippan star center, kept the team going by scoring 16 counters. Stepanick was next high scorer with 13 points to his credit. The Ambridgers, playing their last game of the season defeated Beaver Falls 44-32. Stepanick of the Garnet and Gray and Boller of Beaver Falls each gathered 14 points. Thus the Ambridge High School basketball team of 1945-46 terminated its struggle for cham- pionship, satisfiecl by holding third place in the W.P.I.A.L. Section III race and also by being co-champs of Beaver County. Ray Stepanick led the scorers with an 11.5 average, while Mike Knopic came second with a 10.6 average. ?L35'Q'a A, sw f , X :.. .i g 'SL , A 1 , . N' ff . A in .. , , K , , , V+!

CHEERLEADERS Responsible for directing school spirit at all basketball and football games this year was the Cheerleading Squad under the capable direction of Miss Stella Barr. Doing all practice on after- school hours, this hard-working team of four boys and three girls developed a working vocabu- lary of thirty-two cheers, f1V6 of which were new. Not content to simply rest on their laurels and blissfully follow in the wake of an already successful activity, this year's cheerleaders developed many "f'irsts". This is the first year that so many of the motions of the old cheers have been changed and so many acrobatic and specialty dances have been added. This is the first year that so many boys have been used on the squad. This is the first year that the cheerleaders have had a public address system for their own use in the stadium, money for which was raised by the cheerleaders, themselves, through the sale of "Dinks,'. The squad consist of: John Smolko, acting captaing John Vincenti, Richard Loclcwich, Mike Zalcarian, Jeanne Sestile, Joanne McKelvy, and Demaris Zagrocki. YALE-PRINCETON GAME This event began in 1932, under the direc- tion of Miss Marcella Spahr. It is patterned. after the annual Yale-Princeton game at Oberlin College, Alma Mater of Miss Spahr. This is a social activity which only lassies and their feminine friends may attend. The teams were chosen from girlis intramural basketball players. The 1944 fans for the Prince- ton wfigersn were led in cheers by: Virginia Orler, Josephine Brogno, Ruth Ann Austin, Lil- lian Martin, and Louise Leyerzaph. Their colors were orange and black. Leading the cheers for the Yale "Bulldogs,, were Estelle Seyboth, Helen Chekanowsky, Sophie I-lladio, Dorothy Klak, and Louise Kingerski. More important were the two teams, and fighting for the orange and black banners we find: Eleanor Braun, Captain, Frances Lehn, Margaret, Linda Fardo, Helen Lesack, and Jane Moyer, subs, Frances Tomko, Eleanor Wagner, Frieda Beaman, Ella Mae Barnhart.

When we say these words we think of our school and thoughts of school are never complete without our thinking of the high school band. Mr. Sporny and the band mem- bers deserve our greatest praise, for they have both worked hard to make this year's band out- standing in the history of the school. There are over one-hundred students registered, although only seventy-seven usually played. The remaining members were used as substitutes. This was the greatest enrollment the band has ever had. There were also two drum majors and four majorettes. The band specialized in formations this year and succeeded in mastering sixteen. They were: An anchor, airplane, Marine emblem, tank with mov- ing wheels, Hello, sailor, a boxed "AH for the Alma Mater, tenth, Dave, square counter march, coffee pot, tepee, bell, Mexican hat, and the let- ters or nicknames of the visiting school. In addi- ticn to these formations, the drum majors and majorettes did several dances to songs the band played, This year's band managers were Tom Croner and Louis Caldarelli. 87 REFRESHMENT COMMITTEE First Row: Durniak, Dur- niak, Bogosian, Beheler, Peros, Mr. Shaffer, Marsillo, Gatta, Jaslcol, Raso, Loshiavo.

Or you could see them in their stand under the grandstand, rushing around getting all of us our refreshments. The profits go to the Debate Team. -88,4 FINANCE COMMITTEE The object of the student finance committee is to give training in handling money and meeting the public. 1 Members were elected by the Student Senate from a list of volunteers drawn from the homeroom. They were approved by Mr. David Snyder, Assistant Princi- pal. The 1945 chairman, Jean Kellmer, was chosen by the senate. The members of the committee numbered thirty this year.

Cf course, it was the usher committee which was comprised of junior and senior girls under the sponsorship of Miss Barr and their chairman, Rose Kraynylc. Their duty, besides looking lovely in their gowns, was to see that those attending the many performances received programs and were comfortably seated. The usher committee has certainly been a boon to the entertainment provided for the various audiences this year, and we are confident it will continue to be just as successful in the future. Egg.. ART CLUB The main purpose cf the art club was for the club members to make scenery for plays, programs for the dances, decorate the gym, and design posters to adver- tise football games and other curricular activities in the school. It also gave the artistically-minded a chance to express their own original ideas. They were under the direction of Mrs. Lang, and she was assisted hy Mike Zalcarian, President, Al Rosso, Vice-President, Artie Petris, Secretary. Ugg- MADRIGAL CLUB First Row: A. Vlasic, Kline L.

Rothermel, the boys of Ambridge High were permitted to participate in intramural basketball and mushball games. These sports stimulated sportsman rivalry between the different homerooms and also provided the boys with recreation and entertainment. Basketball games were played every Monday night at designated times decided upon by the Intramural Sports Committee. This Committee, headed by Michael Hovanec, was divided into several subcommittees whose duties were to set up rules, to keep score, to keep time, to take care of equipment, to draw up a schedule, and to referee the games. In the spring season, the boys formed several mushball teams and participated in that sport immediately after school. The various tasks which had to be taken care of in these games were also performed by the Intramural Sports Committee. BOXING CLUB The Boxing Club, under the guidance of Mr. Serene, was composed of boys interested in boxing. The club met every Tuesday during the club period. The object of this club was to teach the members to defend themselves and be more developed physically. The members of the club were selected by Mr. Serene from many candidates. The members were divided into weight classes and they held boxing bouts among themselves in preparation for the annual boxing tournament. The members were under the capable leadership of President Theodore Mickey, Vice President Paul Altonian, and Treasurer Richard Hunt. -97- Row l: Sestile, Gatta, Wassum, V.

This, however, did not dampen the enthusiasm of the 120 girls who came out for this sport. The games were played on the Junior High baseball field and the upper Senior High fxelcl.

After developing slcill and coordination of muscles in training and as a climax before starting to enter the different meets, the team staged a program in the auditorium in which every team member participated. Our school was well represented and much honor was attained when the gym team, with Sam Altonian as captain, entered the different meets at Allegheny, Johnstown, several Y. M. C. A. meets, the W. P. I. A. L. meet, and finally the Penn State meet. Letters were awarded to everyone on the team for they all had at least placed and won some honor. The higher ranks were attained by Altonian and Frangione. mgg- GIRLS' GYM TEAM With Miss Barr as coach and Josephine Brogno and Sophie Hladio as man- agers, the Girls' Gym Team made themselves very active and Well-known. The group was composed of forty girls who were divided into three groups. One group, in charge of Peggy Voettiner and Eleanor Pugar, learned different tap routines. Another group learned ballet dances and this group was in charge of Paula Caputo. The third group was in charge of Sarah Kline and Lois Hess, and they learned free hand drills, Indian club drills, and so on. The girls met during club periods and after school on Wednesdays. During these after school sessions the girls did work on the rings, parallel bars and the horse. As a climax of their worlc they held a program in April and the girls showed the result of many months of work and training. Miss Weseley and her group of Junior High G. A. A. girls did folk dances as their part in this all-girl program. -100- Presto, Vladucheclc, Hoffman, Marmaclc, Rossia, Prusick, Kolesin VOCATIONAL MINSTREL The third annual Vocational minstrel was presented this year with a cast of 125.
