Todd aroused the admiration of his students. Through his understanding help and friend- liness, the boys were quick to make him one of them. He had just completed his 17th year of success- ful teaching when death cut short his teaching career. Born in Woodlawn and educated at the New Sheffield Academy, Mr. Todd came to Am- bridge in his youth. After working at various positions, he began teaching auto mechanics in the high school when the vocational course was first instituted. Mr. Todd strived persistently during the early years of the Vocational Department and achieved a great triumph-the respect and friendship of his students. Those who were acquainted with Mr. Todd fully realize that we have lost a superh instructor and good friend. 1 ..s :T - f Joyce Mason, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Mason was born in 1931 in St. Benedict, Pennsylvania. In 1945 she moved to Sewiclcley Creek Road and entered the Ambriclge School System. Joyce was killed during her Junior year of high school on October 22, 1947 in an automobile accident. Joycels main interests in high school were music and art. We deeply regret the loss of a class- mate and friend. WAYNE NURNEY -1. , JOYCE MASON Wayne Nurney, son of Shepard and Mary Nurney, was born in Glenwillard, November 21, 1929. Entering Ambridge as a freshman, Wayne elected to take the general course. He became a member of Miss Sarah Adam's homeroom upon his entrance into the senior high. Among his many hobbies, hunting and fishing were his favorites. Wayne also found much pleasure in roller skating. The fatal accident o c c u r r e d while Wayne was riding in a jeep with some of his friends. The loss of one of our fellow students is deeply grieved by all. IN APPREEIATIUN To the Faculty who are our instructors, friends, and advisers in the development of our better selves, we express our deep gratitude. Their generous instruction and understanding help have enriched our high school lives. Through their en- couragement, We have strived for success in maintaining high scholastic standards. A spirit of cooperation dom- inated our triumph and we feel that thus united we have left a heritage challenging the years to come. l l ,- Q sf, ,.s,g?Qif .19 at -A QLQJPQV , .tyiffl .

SMITH The value, the possibilities, and the power of the right type of education for youth and for adults are better appreciated today than ever before. Education in America has long been recognized as a public necessity. However, it is only within recent years that the real power of education in promoting international good will and cooperation has been utilized. Today a number of international educational organizations are working to- gether in an effort to win a permanent world peace. In your production of the Bridger of 1948, you have ably presented a good outline of many of the pleasant and valuable experience which you have had during your last three years in the public schools. The sacrifices which your parents may have made in lceeping you in school, and the money that has been expended by the people of this community and by the state in providing an opportunity for you to have an education, all repre- sent an investment of considerable proportion. However, just as those who have gone out from Ambridge High before you, you too will soon be taking your places in the home, in industry, in business, in the professions, and in the government of the community, the state, and the nation. May each of you live up to the high standards of achievement and the high ideals of conduct for which your Alma Mater has always stood. SUPERVISOR OF INSTRUCTION, DIRECTOR OF CURRICULUM AND RESEARCH IN SECONDARY EDUCATION DR. JOSEPH M. BENKERT There are two ways by which the peoples of the earth may achieve One World.', The first, or totali- tarian method, is to liquidate all opposition. World order thus becomes the candle light of a leader reflected many times by faithful followers. The second, or demo- cratic method, is through universal education. Our motives and our democratic idealogies must be made clear to the world. Mutual understanding is the only basis upon which to build a cooperative democratic world society. It follows, therefore, that our motives and our idealogies must be constantly scrutinized. These are the duties of the citizens of a democracy: to select from the cultures of the past 'tlhose specific contributions of the sciences and the humanities which would strengthen our democratic societyg to eliminate from our social, political, and economic organization those malpractices which would undermine the Com- monwealth. Finally, in a democracy, every candle must shine, not from the reflected glory of the leaders, but from the individual light produced when free men are stimulated to full development in an atmosphere of democratic public education. PRINCIPAL OF SENIOR HIGH MR. MICHAEL F. SERENE The school is the institution where education not only takes place but is put to use. In a highly civilized democratic society the use of writing and printing make-s education a necessity. An educated individual has com- mand of the pronunciation of words, the connotation of synonyms, the flavor of idioms, and the use of his mother tongue. This is Education! From it results social organization. The tendency of human minds to learn from one another results largely from social intermingling through- out school life, It is by this intermingling that one demonstrates his education. From social inter-mingling comes also social change since whatever new is discovered by one individual becomes the property of all through the use of the spoken and printed word. The aim, content, and method of formal education is the same as the aim, content, and method of social progress. What- ever change is made in our schools comes out as change in the society of the fuutre. Within limits, education is practically the guiding force in social change. Therefore, we educate not only students, but in the long run the .world itself. The Ambridge High School has a place to play in the future. Its students go forth prepared to assume their places in the Society of Tomorrow. LEADERS rl... . img' -gl,-iiffli. ErI???L1l' ' I I 'I' I DIRECTOR OF VOCATIONAL AND INDUSTRIAL ARTS MR. L. TAGGART The importance of vocational education in our local, state and national economy, was very aptly ex- pressed by our Pennsylvania State Chief of Industrial Education at a recen-t meeting in Harrisburg. His state- ments follow: We believe vocational education is a personal asset to an individual because it enables him to earn a living, maintain a home, and afford a family. We believe vocational education is an economic asset to our country because trained workers create wealth by increasing the amount and -the quality of production. We believe vocational education is a social asset to our people because success in work gives them happi- ness, satisfaction, and a feeling of security. M VE, the students of Ambridge High School, Wish to express our appreciation of the school board. We take this opportunity to render our thanks for their efforts and wish them further success in their work. This policymaking body, consisting of eight members elected for a six-year term, considers the problems of administrating the schools. Broken into seven committees, the Board further studies the programs of education and maintenance.

They were on hand to referee, keep score, and take care of the equipment during the games. Led by Chairman Al Seaman, the committee was supervised by Mr. Roth- ermel, later succeeded by Mr. Budimir. This com- mittee encouraged good sportsmanship and stimu- lated rivalry among the teams. They drew up rules for the athletic events, and whenever needed, they handed down decisions on protests. In addition to these many tasks, the Intramural Sports Committee also sends write-ups to the Daily Citizen.

They attempt to clo this by setting up active mushball, volley ball, soccer, and basketball schedules. During the tournaments the girls learn to work together as a team and build wholesome asso- ciations with their teammates. This committee is chosen by the Student Senate and is supervised by Miss Spahr. MZ4... ASSEMBLY COMMITTEE A dramatic-minded committee combined their talents for the purpose of preparing entertaining assembly programs. Besides their special Christmas and Easter shows, talent programs were presented by the senior, junior, and sophomore classes separate- ly.

Among the programs these twenty-nine girls ushered are: the Mid-Western Band Concert, Senior Class Play, and Graduation. Into their hands falls the job of passing out programs and seeing that the public has found seats. -25- Cun achooll plump JUNIOR CLASS PLAY A hilarious comedy entitled Take It Easy was presented by the dramatically-inclined portion of the Junior Class on November 14, 1947. Miss Hulllnerg, director, introduced a dual cast thus giving more juniors a chance to participate in this event. Mrs. Highgate, an eccentric, absent-minded woman, wished to have her portrait painted. At the same time she sends for a man to paint her kitchen. When Tom Lawrence visits Nancy, Mrs. Highgate mistakes him for the kitchen painter and puts him to work. On the arrival of the kitchen painter, she is anxious for him to paint her portrait. The plot was further confused by the entrance of a thief, plotting to steal Mrs. Highgate's pearls. When Mrs. Highgate found her pearls missing Beagle Jones was brought into the picture. All the confusion ended as the pearls were found and Mrs. Highgate gave permission for Nancy and Tom to he married. The juniors took entire charge of the production filling the jobs of student director, prompters, stage manager, stage crew, property, make-up, costumes, ushers, tickets, finance, and interior decoration.

Mrs. Lazar, sponsor, was assisted by Captain Jeanne Petricko and Lieutenants Becky Stettler, Mary Brown, and Vera Prisiaz. The girls also ushered at the football games. Along with these duties this group promoted many social affairs. Their biggest undertaking, a Valentineis Day Formal, met with the approval of the student body. An initiation banquet followed their informal initiation. Later in the year, the girls met at a second banquet celebrat- ing a successful year. - -i A U T O D R I V I N G This year a course called Auto Driving was introduced into Ambridge, open to juniors and seniors only. Their schedule began with thirty-six hours of lecture work from textbooks. This was supplemented with movies on highway safety and with testing equipment. After dividing the classes into groups of fours, the fifty-five enrolled students spent the remainder of the year actual- ly driving. Mr. Chapala, auto driving instructor, took a special course on Highway Safety Driving from the A.A.A. in Bay City, Michigan. A.R.C.H. Snyder has been generous in donating a dual controlled Pontiac to be used in these classes. Such a course has been tried successfully in many states, but has had a slow start in this area. Aliquippa and Ambridge are the first schools in Beaver County to institute driving into their cur- riculum. Some schools offer one-half or one credit for this subject, and some require all students to take an auto driving course before graduation. attentive to oun wr-:Qtane -29.- I Si t E 1 , 2 g , fq Ii i it 5 ,,, 8 lit WL H 4 M ,, W ' 15 5 3 1. m Q '- i.g f Y ' . f ' 1 f Z A wx W l i 3 A f ix W Q' 1 M Q 33' , Y A , FQW i yi x s M71,3Sii 1' Wx fl QV V gf V : 1 I ig- V l W Y ,M Y I A A M1 it Lgmilx 1, M'-K .wwf K ,wyhyhh Mm 'mlm' lk, ,, ' 'Q I ,,A, 1, ll .I QV V W ' , W if-, 5 91 56 D5 an ff! an gp F31Q j- gif f i .

From this group an ensemble of seventeen voices sang for the Baden Woman's Club and the Business and Professional Woman's Club, another group for the Elks Memorial service Yule- tide caroling has become a memorial part of the Club's functions. Participation in Mid-Western and State Choruses is anxiously sought by the enthusiastic vocalists. Their year is culminated at the Annual Vocal Concert. They also furnish background at the Baccalaureate and Commencement services. Accompanied on the piano by Regina Burzesse, the club is lead by President Richard Ma- thias and Vice President AI Seaman. Jean Troup and Dolores Bursh are secretary and treasurer, respectively. A Hobo convention marked the Madrigal Club's biggest social event. Barn dancing and re- lay races highlighted this gala affair.

A representative from each home room contributed his services to the Silhouette. These people handled the distribution of the monthly publication and gathered subscriptions at the be- ginning of the year. SIS, SILHOUETTE The editorial staff of ,47-'48 celebrated the Silhouette's Silver Anniversary by maintaining an outstanding record. Never before has there been such a large paper published monthly in Am- bridge High School. The practice of presenting an outline of Ambridge High in six or eight pages was a policy set up this year. Due to the high cost of paper and printing, the paper was cut down in the latter part of this year. With a circulation almost reaching the 1000 mark, the Silhouette has been awarded second place among the best high school papers in the nation by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association.

ARRANGING BUSINESS DETAILS THE BRIDGER This year the graduating class of Ambridge High School has presented the ninth annual Bridger to the senior high students. The Senior Editorial Staff was assisted by a Junior apprentice staff who are preparing themselves for work on future Bridgers. Long hours of tedious work produced this informative book of memories. Many hours were spent both in and out of school taking and mounting pictures, writing articles, and gathering information on all phases of high school life. The advertising staff began their work early in the year, and much credit for the Bridger should go to them. Neither should the circulation staff be forgotten. They have worked steady since early September taking your orders and finally delivering your Bridger to you. In your hands you now hold part of your pastg and in this past are preserved many hours of enjoyment mingled with sadness for posterity. This book is a collection of memories which can't be forgotten. Keep it and cherish it. BRIDGER STAFF PREPARING ENGRAVING COPY PHOTOGRAPHERS ON THE SPOT V W K .M Q0 mu , W 'W' ' W , ' 2 '7 VV -- wh.

No chairman was appointed this year, instead duties were divided among the entire com- mittee. Members sold and collected tickets at football and basketball games, plays, and other school events. They also ushered and patrolled at basketball games. Seniors who served on the finance committee for two years received a letter. To retain mem- bership one must work at twenty events a year. Several students joined the committee in their fresh- man year. ,42.- ART PUBLICITY COMMITTEE The Art Publicity Committee is a special committee of twenty students chosen by Mrs. Lut- man to publicize all school affairs. Selections are based on the artistic ability shown by students. To obtain a letter one must serve two years, be a senior, and make at least twenty projects a year. This year the students made posters for dances, plays, concerts, and all programs presented by students. In addition to this they made place cards, entered contests, and did work for outside or- ganizations such as the Children's Aid and B.P.W. Club. During the year they made a field trip to Pittsburgh where they visited the Art Exhibit, Conservatory, and Zoo.

As in previous years, this legislative group has achieved a memorable record. Auditing the activity fund books has been added to their duties. Through their diligence and persistence, an interchange of ideas was conducted among the valley schools. One of their tasks in maintaining a full, traditional school life was the inauguration of a student store. Automatically each homeroom president represents his section in the Senate. Under the guidance of Mr. Mattuch, parliamentary procedure was upheld by their alert officers: President, Andrew Boschettog Vice President, Joe Walkog Secretary, Mary Pelcarchilc, and Treasurer, Joe Sestile. The ultimate goal of student participation in new projects was encouraged by our ambitious leaders. This list of accomplishments presents a record to be upheld by future Senators.

Wlatlo nail Ho non Socletmj Upon entering senior high, an important goal is membership in the National Honor Society. Every junior and senior to be eligible for membership must have a high rating of Scholarship, Service, Leadership, and Character. Character, the most important factor, is rated by each teacher. Of the highest ranking students, only fifteen percent of the seniors and ten percent of the juniors become members. During their impressive installation ceremonies four seniors speak on each of the four qualities necessary for membership. The vows are taken by the new members and each old member renews his. Those installed in their junior year served as foundation for the 1948 chapter. Every year the organization holds one social event. Last year a well attended hay ride and an outdoor picnic at North Park was their choice. Row 1: Schultz, Prisiaz, Miss Bogovich, Naclzalc, Gray. Row 2: Cramer, Marshall, Karnavas Brown.

Clfocationall 'Dixie Jubilee Cwllnlmtnz-:Q On February 4 the Vocational Department presented its traditional Dixieland Jubilee Min- strel. An all-male Cast displayed their talents in a two-part program centered around a show- boat theme. Miss Hullberg directed the end- men, who clowned and sang in typical minstrel fashion. Some of their solo selections were Old Man River, Robert E. Leef' Stormy Weather, and 'llVly Gal Salf' with the chorus joining in. Through the untiring efforts of Nliss Rice the chorus provided a colorful back- ground. A jubilee Ball made up the second portion of the unforgettable stage production. The female parts were portrayed by the boys. Also featured in the dances and skits, was the High School band, conducted by Mr. Sporny, which proved very amusing in the dance pantomimes. Construction of stage props was done by the boys of the Wood Shop, and with the coopera- tion of the Electric Shop, effective lighting and sound was achieved.

THE IEIZTS FITTTTEALL SEASTIN The Ambridge High School football aggre- gation showed early that they were again a power to be reckoned with when they pulverized St. George in the lidlifter '51-7. The scoring mara- thon saw touchdown by Sam Bombiani, Willie Dozier, Bill Carpenter, Johnnie Gaspersic, Jay Pribulsky, and Bobbie Bezuk. Bezuk also passed for two touchdowns. The best the visitors could do was score after an Ambridge fumble in their own territory. The locals then treked to Vandergrift where they did the expected, throbbing the home boys 14-0. Vandergrift looked good in the first quarter as they ran five first downs but were hindered by penalties that kept them from scoring. The second time the Bridgers got their hands on the ball then sent 11,000 fans to their feet by springing Sam Bombiani on the 65-yard touchdown jaunt. Bob Harris converted and the half-time score stood at 7-0. After resisting a Vandy bid for a touchdown the locals came back with another tally by Bom- biani and Hanan Harris again converted. The red-hot gridders then journeyed to New Brighton for a breather only to find a very alert eleven that passed the Bridgers into a frenzy before they finally succumbed to the Bridger methodical attack 33-14. Brighton scored first on a long pass play after being assisted by a few THE VARSITY SQUAD ,.,,,.,, -il .

Two Garnet and Gray drives fizzled out, before Willie Dozier smashed over from the two. The second Canto found Sammy Bombiani bang- ing over another score from the three. With the opening of the third period came another Dozier touchdown scoring on the longest run of the evening, 24 yards. Bombiani scored again on an end run, then, after Bezuk set up a score on a pass to Pribulslcy, he bounced into the end zone for the final score. Loschiavo Reese A triclcy Beaver Falls team met and broke the Bridgerls back in a game that found the Orange and Black just too good as they walked away with an 18-13 win. On two long drives the visitors scored twice while the Bridgers fought back with a score of their own when Bomhiani climaxed a sustained drive by jointing the last eight yards. The Orange and Black, eager to avenge last year,s last-minute victory, rose twice to stop the vaunted Ambridge grid machine with- . .gtallwcmt ,Cinema-:rt Bogosian Hun+ in the five-yard marker, then scored again. The locals finally scored, but it was all over and the Bridgers were uoutf' After a weelc's rest, the rejuvenated Nloemen treked to the bluff where they routed their tra- ditional Aliquippa rivals 45-Z. Sam Bombiani and Willie Dozier shared the scoring honors with three touchdowns apiece and end Bill Carpenter chip- ping in with one. Dozier turned in the Bridgers' Yacovoni Mikeha longest scoring jaunt of the game and the year with a 77-yard sprint. The game of the year arrived. The game brought together a tough, untarnished Rochester eleven and their biggest obstacle, the one-de- feated Bridgers. Close to 15,000, a record crowd, watched the Rams grab off an early lead via the air-lines just three minutes after the kickoff. Nloments later, Rochester's Nocera blocked a Harris punt, scooped it up and scampered some 50 yards to make it 14-0. Then Bobbie Bezuk, Sam Bombiani passing combo clicked twice and the locals were back in the game. As Harris missed the one all-important conversion, the score stood 14-13 at half-time. Willie Dozier and Bombiani then spearheaded a third period drive that the latter climaxed with an off-tackle slash. The extra point was missed. Just four minutes remained when the Rams recovered a fumble near midfield and promptly turned it into a score that put a close hard-fought ballgame into the proverbial bag, 21-19. A tired, limping Garnet and Gray squad, still licking their wounds from the heartbreaking loss to the Rochester Rams, traveled out to New Kensington to meet the wrath of a powerful Kenstein squad 27-6. Despite the loss of four first stringers, due to injuries early in the tilt, the Bridgers put up a stunch ground defense only to have the Coalminers put on an aerial show that accounted for three of their four tallies. The only local score came in the third stanza, when Bezuk smacked over after Jay Pribulsky had sprinted 33 yards to the two. just for the fun of it, the championship Ren High eleven tacked on one more and it ended 27-6. The finale found the Bridgers cramming twenty-five points in the second quarter and easily gained a 25-12 dceision over a visiting Ellwood City aggregation. Orrie Loschiavo scored twice on two long sprints, Bezuk on a 32-yard jaunt and Bombiania chipped in with a two-yard plunge as the curtain rang down on another thrill-packed season. Although a record of live won and three lost doesn't look too successful on paper, the Bridgers were never counted out on any occa- Many students ar- rived early to avoid the gate-crowd at the Rochester game.

A lot of credit was given to the two co-captains Seaman and Los- Janicki Ses+ile Gnwancll to clflctonlff Hanievich chiavo who took a back seat and let others play even though it was their last year. After seven- teen defeats the team was still full of spirit. Mr. Palmer also commented that size had a lot to do in holding the team back. It was also stated by Mr. Palmer that the boys in future years that played this year, along with hard practice, would make a reputation for our school and a name for themselves.

The event is under the excellent supervision of the athletic director, Miss Marcella Spahr, who introduced this all-girl affair in 1932. Twenty outstanding basketball playing girls are selected at the end of the intramural basketball tour- naments. They then practice three hard weeks for this big game. Captain Beverly Bauman headed the Bulldog line-up. Her teammates included Eleanor Wagner, Ann Pukach, Jeanne Sestile, Catherine Catanzarite, Betty Kost, Shirley Winarchek, Loretta Szafaryn, Faith Mack, and Pauline Felix.

Starting to play early in the fall, the girls form teams of their own choice to compete in a tournament which lasts for several weeks. At the end of this contest, Miss Spahr piclcs two all-star teams, their subs, and two reserve teams. Champs of the ALL-STAR Springtime brings sunny weather, and sunny weather brings out the Ambridge High lassies for mushball. The girls play during regular gym periods and then form their own teams to play after school. Highlighting the season is the big all-star game. The all-star teams are picked by Miss Marcella Spahr school for that season are the winners of the all- star tussel. A challenge from the boys added on extra at- tractions to the 1947 season. The victors of the all- star game consented to the contest, and after a long, hard struggle, the boys won by a slight margin. MUSHBALL who supervises the intramural teams as they compete at their bi-weekly passions. Besides the regular teams, there are subs, and the two reserve teams which provide entertainment before the main event. Not only does mushball provide enjoyment for all, but it also helps to build healthy, young Americans.

We find ourselves looking back to the day we entered Senior High School. Though looked down upon by the upperclassmen as we rallied together and elected Joe Walko, President, Andy Miketa, Vice Presidnetg Molly Yee, Secretary and Bob Bezuk, Treasurer. After choosing our leaders, we were quick in joining the ranks of the extra-curricular activities. Sopho- mores were seen on the debate team, writing for the Silhouette, winning honors on the athletic fields, and shining in scholastic achievements. We were formally welcomed into the Senior High by the Juniors and Seniors at the Sohomore Recep- T H . SENI CLA E CR SS '7 tion. Our class advisers were Miss Forcey, Mr. Mattuch, and Miss Duffy, who remained so throughout our last glorious years in the Am- bridge High School. Our Junior year was filled with more excit- ing events. At this time we re-elected Joseph Walko as President and Andy Miketa as Vice- President, Becky Stetler and Mike Sovich were added to the group as Secretary and Treasurer. Six of our more sports-minded girls won posi- tions on the annual Yale-Princeton teams. Others were invited to join the Historical Society, Lead- ers' Club, and sixteen outstanding juniors repre- sented their class on th: National Honor Society. We were guests of the Seniors at the Junior- Senior Dance in December, and in return were the hosts at the annual Junior-Senior Prom held in May. Enhancing the oriental decorations at this affair, was the music of Baron Elliot. One Mad Night, our first dramatic production, re- ceived much acclaim. To lead us as Seniors we again chose Joseph Walko and Andy Miketa as our two top officers. Assisting them were Mary Sapp as Secretary and Michael Kurch as Treasurer. The highly honored position of president of the Student Senate was held by Andrew Boschetta. Under his leadership, 76 a student store was inaugurated for the first time in Ambridge. This year we feted the Juniors at the Junior-Senior Dance, and they were the hosts at the Prom, which was our last school social affair. By now many had gained recognition as Editors and Captains of school activiites, while others won laurels in debate, sang in Madrigal and Glee Clubs, and played in both the band and orchestra. As seniors, we were initiative. We introduced six and then eight pages to our school publication, set up committees to visit other schools for an interchange in ideas, and finally, lead the school in a Leap Year Dance. Further honors were attained when Richard Rytel placed first in the All-State Track Meet. Our football players, led by Captain Bob Bezuk, deserve much praise, as do the basketball players and their Co-Captains, A1 Seaman and Orlando Loschiavo. Though these activities have taken up much of our time, we have not forgotten the real purpose of being in school. Our scholastic standards have been kept high while we have had our fun. Now we are leaving and shall be on our own, but we will never forget those who have encouraged us to move onward. Our parents, our teachers, and our fellow-students will always be with us, though not before us.

Z THE JUNIIJR ELASS N ENDING our second year of high school, we, the junior class, look back on two full years of attainment in the fields of scholarship, athletics, student government, journalism, and dramatics. We acknowledge a sense of gratitude to Mr. De- sanzo, Miss Smith, and Miss Adams, our class sponsors. It was with their aid that we survived the first nine months of our high school years. As sophomores we banded together to elect Paul Erdelyan, President, Mary Ann Moranz, Secre- tary, and Frances Batz, Treasurer. After our lead- ers were chosen, we found courage to withstand the usual barrage of lipstick, shoe polish, and cheap perfume. It was during our sophomore year that we strove to take part in the betterment of our school and our class. We gained valuable training and laid the foundation for the parts we are to play as upperclassmen. With the end of summer we found ourselves addressed as juniors. Presiding at the head of our class were Paul Erdelyan and George Mihalic, again elected as the two top officers. Assisting them as Secretary and Treasurer were Frances Batz and Joe Sestile, re- spectively. For the first time our influence was strongly felt. juniors attended the Student Con- gress, were invited to join the National Honor Society, wrote for the Silhouette, took part in speech and debate, played in the band, and became active members of the football and basketball teams. Another accomplishment of our class was the dou- ble cast in Wlnake It Easy, a comedy directed by Miss Agnes Hullberg. The climax of a successful year came at the annual Junior-Senior Prom, at which time we feted the seniors. With an eye on our past achievements, we are looking forward to a bright future in our senior year. 3 g I ,e : Erdelyan, President: Mihalic, Vice President Bah, Secretary: Ses'l'ile,i Treasurer Row 1: Virginia Agrecy, Lois Amsler, Thomas Arthur, Mary Austin, Dolores Babyok, Robert Babyok, Joseph Bachor, Betty Lou Ball, Agnes Bologna, Lois Barnhart, Marvin Barnhart, Fannie Barr, Row 2: George Barrett, James Barto, Hil- da Bartosh, Frances Batz, Eugene Beech, Juanita Beeler, Mary Bellas, Robert Bentz, Jean Besick, 'Patsy Bevard, Dorothy Bisco, Wayne Bishop.

Q 5. .r o . . o , . 1 . ,K , 1 . A steelworker once accidentally let a pair of tongs slip through the rolls of a steel rolling mill. The tongs were ruined but the steel in the tongs was improved. That accident gave birth to the Cold Finished Steel Industry,-a process where Finished Steel can be made harder, more solid in structure, free of all surface de- fects, true to size and shape, bright and beautifully polished. Every phase of your daily life is bettered by its perfection. E Not an automobile, train or airplane X Could Opera without cold finished shafting and parts made from cold finished steel bars. Not a machine Jill in your own Ambridge plants could operate . . . not a typewriter . . . telephone . . . radio . . washing machine or ironing machine would serve as they do today without this finer steel. Even the knobs on the door handing? of your family car are cold finished steel-one of thousands of parts and gadgets which are produced by the millions on automatic machines from bars of cold finished steel. Right here in your community is one of America's leaders in the cold finished steel industry- WYCKOFF STEEL COMPANY . Perhaps your father , brother , +0 BL: sister K or other relatives work there. Perhaps some day you, too, will earn your o living helping Wyckoff Steel produce this finer steel so essential to the modern way of life. Wyckoff Steel congratulates you on completion of one of your most important phases of life- high school In EE' -with the message that full production throughout industry is the answer to better living for every American.

Many, many par- ents of Ambridge High students are Spang- Chalfant people. This makes for a pretty close bond. Naturally, we get to know something about you and you get to know something about us. We think you'd like to know more about some things your parents have helped in and you may share in-things that have made Spang-Chalfant's name known in almost any spot you could point to on the map. For instance, right here in our Ambridge plant we make high grade oil well casing and drill pipe of our own design and capable of drilling the world's deepest oil wells. Recently, for example, the deepest exploratory well in the world was drilled at Fort Cobb, Caddo County, Oklahoma. It probed three and a half miles into the earth. All of the pipe was made here in Ambridge- Only a few years ago, drill- ing to such a depth would have been consid- ered impossible. To make the finest pipe which can be sold at competitive prices requires the most modern machinery, tools and manufacturing methods. Do you know that we now have a moderniza- tion program well underway which when com- pleted will provide us with what we believe to be the finest pipe making machinery in the world? With the latest modern machinery and manufacturing methods and with continued product development, we can all look forward to a continued demand for our pipe and for our services.
