MR. I-IENRI R. TODD
WORKING and instructing in the auto shop, Mr.
Henri R. 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
Those who were acquainted with Mr. Todd fully realize that we have lost a superh instructor
and good friend.

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
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, 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.
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.

SUPERINTENDENT OF sci-Ioots
DR. N. A. 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
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-
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
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
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
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.
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-
"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
"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. The presiding officers and standing committees are:

BOYS' INTRAMU RAL COMMITTEE
Organized by the Student Senate, the Boys'
Intramural Sports Committee set up a schedule for
intramural basketball and football games. 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.

It is the aim of the Girls' Intramural Sports
Committee to further good sportsmanship among our
female athletes. 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
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. The Assembly Committee also handled make-up
and costumes for the minstrel, Junior Class Play,
and Senior Class Play. This year was Miss Hullberg's

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

This year the corridors of Ambridge High have
been faithfully patrolled by twenty-one members of
the Girls, Patrol. 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.
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.

and cooperation aided in building
the finest band in our school history,
much credit for its success is due
in no small part to the efforts of

GIRLS' GLEE CLUB
The Girls' Glee Club, consisting of ninety members, was reorganized again this year under
Miss Rice's sponsorship. Lead by President Dolores Belis and Vice-President Audrey Poling, the
group took part in several musical programs during the year. Assisting these two officers was
Sylvia Dugan, Secretary-Treasurer. Their main achievement was the annual Spring Vocal Concert.
Selected from the music class, fifty high ranking singers are invited to join the Madrigal
Club. 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,
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.
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
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
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.

Thirty-three students, supervised by Mr. Robb, handled the financial proceedings at all school
affairs. 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-
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.

Student government is upheld in Ambridge High School largely through the efforts of
the Student Senate. 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.

May 22, a memorahle day for over 210 students, marked the Junior-Senior
Prom. With their escorts, gown-clad girls entered the gym which was transformed
into a "Chinese Fantasyf' Mrs. Lutman and her art committee decorated the walls
with silver painted murals.
A successful evening was due to the conscientious Junior Class Officers,
who brought Baron Elliot and his VUCAE Orchestra to provide the music.
The evening was climaxed by Mike Kostas, the king of 1942, crowning
Bill Kisaday and Dorothy Towcimalc as King and Queen of the Prom. After the
Coronation, Anna May Sovich and John Hronas joined the royal couple in leading
a grand march.
Under the direction of Mr. Robert Schoenweis, a group playing five violins,
two violas, two cellos, two string basses, and a piano make up the string ensemble.
They furnished music at the Junior Class Play, the Senior Class Play, a
program at the Jewish Synagogue, the Band Banquet, and several assemblies.

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

of the unforgettable stage production. The
female parts were portrayed by the boys. Also
featured in the dances and skits, was the High

Construction of stage props was done by the

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
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

penalties. 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.
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-

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'
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,
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
Although a record of live won and three
lost doesn't look too successful on paper, the

The team this year was slightly inexperienced
due to a lack of lettermen and also a new coach
Mr. Palmer promised that they would show a
good team next year if they had the same co-
operation he had this year. A lot of credit was
given to the two co-captains Seaman and Los-
Gnwancll to clflctonlff
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
Sbvlnlted . . . .fomgall .

Although Ambridge has had cross-country
only two years, Mr. Piper turned out a team this

teams. In spite of a tough schedule, they de-
feated Beaver, Connellsville, Langley, Central

The most talked of affair in the life of every
sports-minded girl is the annual Yale-Princeton
game. 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.
Princeton's aggregation was composed of Cap-
tain Dorothy Towcimak, Linda Fardo, Helen Wo-
liski, Genevieve Gapinski, Rochette Carnavale, Mary
Pekarchik, Dorothy Jean Petricko, Ester Olson,
Eleanor Jula, and Shirley Fulton.
Yalels cheerleaders, Vera Prisiaz, Kay Maker,
Sara Marshall, Eva Bologna, and Mary Bellas, fol-
lowed the old tradition of the "Bulldogs', by wear-
ing OLIIHIS of blue and white in quilted satin.
Rooting for the "Tigers,' were Virginia Orler,

Volleyball is a must for many Ambridge High
girls. 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
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.

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.

FTER twelve years of hard work and fun,
we, the class of '48, are ready to face the uncer-
tain future. 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-
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,
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.

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.

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.
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 ,
sister K or other relatives work there. Perhaps some day you, too, will earn your
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.

should know each other
Through the years, many Ambridge High
School graduates have been welcomed into the
Spang-Chalfant organization. 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-
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
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
