Gowns and suits are as- sembled in gay quantity and flower shops are left pleasantly depleted of their floral masterpieces. The crowning of the King and Queen climaxes a Wonderful evening of fun and en- tertainment. King Alfred Mata and Queen Joyce Double Wore the coveted crowns at the 1954 Prom. Allin all, the Prom is a perfect end to the school year. , f 47 Q 7 ' 77 f' "" W M V61 UMA 'C' X5-9, f ' ffcff V, -. ,gf A XCYXZIZ V 2 1452x6444 X 1fQjjiL-4+ fx ffl' ',- "-I f' " ,f "I 'Lx 'f J k ,Q'?4t4,ff.1 f ,ff 17.52 ,fizffxfd ' gf V , if f f"7 5 - G X, M lr , 4pLa,,1g!

Though faced with a tremendous weight defi- cit and a difficult schedule of nine AA teams, Ambridge, under the experienced guidance of Head Coach Michael Sebastian, triumphed in eight games and shared a 6-6 tie withHar- Brack, Consolation was had however, in the fact that the other Bridger opponents were thoroughly vanquished. Having defeated all other Class AA county teams, Ambridge was awarded the Beaver County Championship by Geneva Col- lege and finished second in the WPLAL. Un- der the Gardner System of scoring for the WPLAL Championship, Clairton won because her team remained undefeated in Class AA rank, although tied with Dormont, a Class A team, This tie did not count since the scoring is done only on Class AA games. Ambridge's lone tie, however,put the Bridgers out of the running since I-lar-B1-ack is a Class AA team. The 1954 Bridger Eleven proves that speed and determination to win are essential factors in producing a Winning ball team.

Perhaps they are your father or brother or sister and perhaps someday, even you may be among them. For these people are the men and women of Wyckoff Steel. Serving the world, you say? Yes, indeed. It may not have occurred to you but cold finished steel, which is what we make at VVyckoFf, is used for the precision parts of literally everything in the world that is mechanical . . . and in this mechanical age that includes just about everything. Youlll find cold finished steel in ordinary objects like mechanical can openers and screw drivers and automobiles andjuke boxes. Youlll find it, too, in unordinary things like rockets and jet planes and Geiger counters and radar equip- ment. You'll find it in Ambridge and you'll find it in Timbuctoo. Yes, the men and women of WVyckolT Steel Company make only cold hnished steel-make it fine and tempered and truefbut they literally serve the world with one ofthe basic niziterizils of our modern civilization.
