i iiiliiBtlflBBglEconomy’s Ideals Inspire Modern Ambridge
In the early nineteenth century, a unique community was established on the site of our modern industrial town of Ambridgc. Economy, as it was called, was an experiment in communal living founded by a group of German religious refugees. Hewn from the wilderness of Beaver County, the tiny society prospered and grew under the gentle guidance of Father George Rapp.
The settlement lay in a favorable as well as picturesque location, with the sloping banks of the Ohio River at its foot, and the rolling hills of the Appalachians behind it. Crops were cultivated on acres of fertile farmland, and the famous orchards at either end of the village were beautiful and fragrant in the spring, bearing varieties of fruit in the harvest season.
Both industry and agriculture flourished. Wines and whiskey were distilled and sold. The textiles from Economy’s whirring wool, cotton, and silk mills were coveted by many well-known seamstresses throughout America. Their timber holdings of 5,000 acres were exploited, and they engaged in the coal and oil business. At one time, a controlling interest was held in the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad.
Principles of the highest order were employed by these pious people. To those passing through the community food and lodging for the night were offered. The Economy Hotel also provided excellent accommodations and genuine hospitality.
Due to its practice of celibacy, however, members began to decline in numbers. In 1905 they sold to the United States Steel Company a large tract of land on which it built the American Bridge Works. It was here, around the walls of the smoking, fuming mill, that the workers built their first modest homes. From these humble beginnings grew the Am-bridge of today.
Thus our forefathers of Economy endowed the town of Ambridge and its citizens with a heritage rich in idealism, high principles, honest industry, and true Christian charity.
The creative architectural and cultural achievements of the Harmonists have been key inspirations toward the growth of a thriving metropolis.
The quaint dwellings which proved most sufficient to the former residents of Economy . . .
. . . have been developed, through the extended education and welfare of modern Ambridge, into superb structures to satisfy the needs of rapid growth and prosperity.The presentation of a well deserved award is a proud climax in recognition of a senior's achievement.

Achievement through Preparation...
In this modern age, when a finger’s touch upon a single button could determine the destiny of a nation or of the entire world, anticipated preparation is recognized as an essential part for the survival of civilization. In the same sense, the Harmonists were aware of a similar situation during their own time and realized that, without certain preparation for the various problems encountered when advancing upon the new frontier, the success and achievements of their community would perish. With this in mind, they instituted among themselves a way of life so well organized that success was inevitable.
At Ambridge High, the highly perfected departmental system of studies is designed to prepare the individual student for the challenges of the future.
7Fellowship through Participation
"Mock Juris” were nccrssary for skillful fencing practice.
The “Mistletoe Ball” promoted social activity amidst the romantic seasonal decor.
One individual going his own way can accomplish very little. In a similar sense, two individuals, each working toward different goals, will again have a low overall efficiency. However, if these two should combine their efforts and strive toward a single goal, progress would be inevitable. The Harmonists applied this general philosophy to their entire way of life and found that by promoting fellowship in the society, they could face major difficulties as a group and overcome them with little resistance. The community maintained a constant schedule of varied social activities which, besides providing individual recreation and enjoyment, enabled them to become socially acquainted and left an impression upon them as a group concerning the success of the community.
The excellent program of extracurricular activities at Ambridge impresses upon the students the necessity of a well developed social character as part of an individual’s educational achievement.The enthusiastic cheering at pep rallies by the student body signified the determination toward victory.

Triumph through Determination ...
Bill Kouvolo found that throwing the javelin required certain skills developed only through long, hard practice.
The personal satisfaction and prestige an individual receives in recognition of some worldly triumph can be fully appreciated only if sincere determination and honest effort were necessary factors in reaching this goal.
The Harmonists, by maintaining the trend toward self-sufficiency throughout the community, reserved for themselves alone the recognition due for their numerous cultural achievements. Refusing aid from profit-seeking foreigners, the Harmonists were determined to manufacture within the community all the essentials of their livelihood, except the basic raw materials which could not be obtained nearby.
The athletes at Ambridge High express these same ideals of determination, and utilize their strongest physical, mental, and emotional efforts in pursuit of personal satisfaction as well as overall triumph.

Honor, in our modern world, may be bestowed upon individuals in various forms depending upon the situation involved. Elaborate presentations of plagues, trophies, certificates, and cash awards are common today.
The Harmonists, however, were limited in their means of expressing honor for a particular person. Lacking any real unit of currency to utilize as an award, the residents of Economy relied upon their skillful carpentry and creative imaginations to furnish the means of expressing honor. Fine dwellings, superior to those of the common people, were constructed for those individuals whom they felt were deserving of honor and the entire community strived for their comfort.
In a similar sense, the outstanding students at Ambridge are presented with recognition in various forms to denote that their accomplishments have made them worthy of honor.

Service through Dedication...
Dedication to one’s principals and beliefs is a rare trait in this modern era and it is therefore fitting that those few who possess this fine characteristic be so honored.
The Harmonists, in their own time, had developed the feeling of dedication among themselves to such an ultimate that each member of the community felt his own responsibility for the overall success of Economy. The leaders sought no personal profit, but merely wished to conserve the livelihood of the society.
In a similar sense, those at Ambridge High who have served for the improvement of the educational program rather than in pursuit of personal glory should be so honored for their sincere dedication.
14The dedication expressed by Jonathen Lenz, one of the original trustees, was an excellent example of sincere devotion directed toward the success of the community.

In the Same Spirit of Endeavor
Practical education, an integral part of life in the Harmony Society, presented young students with a realization of their obligations to their community. Its chief aim was to prepare the children for their future work in the Society.
The “three R’s” were a great challenge to the little children, while the older ones attended school sessions during the evenings. Although extremely limited in their choice of studies, the Harmonist children showed an eagerness to learn the little that was available to them.
Today, an education is no longer a coveted luxury. It has become a necessity to keep pace with a fast-moving world. Wider horizons and unlimited opportunities are available to those who prepare themselves.
In addition to the standard curriculum offered by most schools, Ambridgc Area High School offers courses in five modern languages, advanced science and math, and more than adequate vocational program. Every step is taken to satisfy the desires and capacities of honor students, average students and potential drop-outs.
Scientifically inclined students found personal satisfaction in conducting out of class experimentation and quantitative analysis.Board Adopts Policy to Guide School Program
Before a board meeting, Mrs. Fandergrift, Mrs. Stein, Mr. Zerilla and Mr. Bucka look over a proposed amendment.
This year, as in previous years, the Ambridge Area School Board met many challenges and coped with many problems. In cooperation with the administration, it strived to maintain and improve educational standards. Perhaps the biggest accomplishment successfully completed this year, was the approvement of the merger between Ambridge Area, Baden-Economy, and Highland school districts. The merger was accepted on March 2, and will go into effect July 1, 1966.
Besides making many trips to Harrisburg with various proposed laws, the Ambridge School Board accepted many new written policies which served as a guide line for the school’s operation. They also made many remodeling changes and made changes in the school program. Another important job of the school board was hiring teachers, administrators, and other important school personnel.
The school board has certainly served the community both honorably and dutifully, and have gained praise from fellow residents.

The administration of AHS continually strives for higher standards of education. Every year new problems arise concerning teaching methods, guidance, and the renovation of equipment and grounds. The administrative staff assumes these responsibilities and works to formulate effective policies.
Following the schools recent evaluation, plans were made to improve standards and procedures in many departments. The expansion of the science department was designed to include a course in advanced science directed primarily at college bound students. The two-track English program, whereby a two-period course is combined to include English and themes, was also developed. Improvements in the math department included the standardization of a course in trigonometry and calculus which is now available to college bound students. Plans for a new science building including a much-needed chemistry lab are being evaluated.
Resulting from the effective innovations and improvements, the administration is recognized as an essential part of the Ambridge education complex.

Secretaries at AHS
The secretaries in our various offices serve the students, the teachers, administrators, and the public. They handle the multitude of details making Ambridge High an efficiently operated school. In the central office a trio of women perform those jobs most familiar to the student body. Here the permanent record and class schedule cards of each student are on file. Typing up and mimeographing tests papers, printing the daily announcements, and maintaining a lost and found department are a few more of their many duties.
All money transactions are handled by the secretaries in the Finance Office. This staff handles the funds of the schools organization and cafeteria tickets and those from activities sales. Checking supplies from the stock room is also another of their jobs.
In the attendance office is kept the attendance record of each student.
Serving the administrative department are the secretaries of the superintendent’s office. This branch receives packages sent to the school, maintains the school board’s records, and serves as receptionists for visitors to the school.
"What is your excuse todayt” is a familiar question to tardy students when they report to give their excuses to Mrs. Per-suitte in the attendance office.
Among the clerical duties in the superintendent’s office are filing tuition records and mailing orders for school supplies.
23Nurses Cheerfully Render Medical Services
Whenever a student was in need of medical attention, the first thing said was, “Call the nurses’ office.” It was the job of Miss Ann Stolar, Mrs. Lucille Albright, and Mrs. Naomi Peters to administer the needed treatment to the student.
The Department is well equipped and has fine facilities to handle any minor medical problem that may arise.
Medical examination schedules and the tuberculosis innoculation program were set up by this administration.
The nurses not only administered to the medical needs of the student, but found that part of the treatment was listening to personal problems.
In addition to this staff, the school was serviced by two local doctors and five dentists. Medical examinations were given to all eleventh grade students and dental examinations were administered to the seventh graders. Also, physical exams were scheduled for those boys who participated in varsity sports.
Junior high students receive dental check-ups after being prepared by Miss Stolar.

Custodians Perform Many Indispensable Tasks
Students welcomed a warm school building on frigid winter mornings, but few of them stopped to think of the people who kept our school comfortable, neat and attractive throughout the year.
During school hours and long afterwards, members of the maintenance crew cleaned the corridors, the classrooms, the restrooms, and the auditorium. Other personnel maintained the grounds and the stadium, giving the school a neat appearance both inside and out.
The heating and ventilating systems were kept in good repair by another division of the maintenance crew. At night a watchman kept vigilance over the deserted hallways.
Nutritious and delicious food was prepared for the faculty and student body in spotless kitchens by the women in charge of the cafeteria.

Curriculum Staff Coordinates Study Courses
Dr. Benkert and his secretary, Janet Gaona check the grading scales to make sure they are correct.
At all grade levels of the six Ambridge Area public schools, the curriculum was carefully planned to meet the educational needs of all the students. The twenty-two member department, headed by Dr. Joseph Benkert, coordinated the courses in the various grade levels to enable the students to progress from one level to another without needless repetition or confusion. Planning with foresight, the Curriculum Department worked diligently to provide each student with the best educational opportunities possible.
Although arranging and coordinating curriculum was the major job of the department, the staff also took the responsibility of selecting the text books to be used in the various courses.
With the help of the A.A.J.C.C., semester test grading scales were again determined under Dr. Benkert’s supervision.
Orienting new teachers was another important task performed by the Curriculum Department. Special attention given to new teachers enabled them to use to full advantage the many facilities offered by the school.
The Curriculum Department proved itself an important factor in the efficient operation of the Ambridge Area School system.
26Guidance Department Aids Student Planning
Guidance counselors, Mr. Michael Beley and Miss Josephine Brogno, and school psychologist Mrs. Elsie Kac .mer helped all students who requested their services.
The major task of the counseling staff was to advise students in planning their courses and their futures beyond graduation. Career books, pamphlets, films and college catalogues were available to interested students.
Although most of the staff’s time was spent in counseling students, many hours were spent supervising and administering testing programs such as the I.Q. tests and the college boards. Prior to the fall term, they compiled class schedules for every student in the school.
During the year, the Guidance Department made arrangements for representatives from many Western Pennsylvania colleges, universities, trade schools, and branches of the military service to speak to interested students.

Basic Courses in Commercial Subjects
Future secretaries, bookkeepers, and office workers begin building a foundation for their careers by taking the commercial course while in high school. After graduation, students wishing to continue their education may apply for entrance to any of the area’s many fine business schools.
Ambridge Area High School’s commercial department offers students adequate opportunity to prepare for positions in the business world. In addition to the basic skills of bookkeeping and secretarial work, the business training program advocates the development of wholesome attitudes toward work. Supplementing the conventional courses of typing, shorthand and bookkeeping are instruction in modern filing methods, switchboard operation, and the use of various business machines. A course in personal typing and notehand is available to conscientious academic students who wish to prepare for college work.
Careful selection of courses and sufficient preparation in high school enables commercial graduates to obtain satisfying business occupations.

Fine Courses in English
Anita Thorton Myrtle Trcmbley Kathryn Troll
Although one of the most difficult and complex languages in the world, English is also one of the most expressive. It is studied not only by the youths of our nation, but also by students of many foreign countries; thus attaining status as a truly universal language. Its international appeal lies in the fact that it is functional and yet extremely versatile.
The first aim of the English Department of Am-bridge Area High School is to teach students to communicate effectively and efficiently. Careful attention is given to sentence structures and the usage of correct grammar. Proper capitalization, punctuation, spelling, and enunciation are stressed as important facets of oral and written communication. Also studied are the prose and poetic works of early and contemporary authors. Through the reading of poems, plays, essays, short stories, and novels, students gain an understanding and appreciation of the literary contributions made by past and present generations.
The themes course proves invaluable to those preparing for college. Clear and intelligent expression leads to the building of informative, entertaining compositions.

AHS Stimulates Interest in the Creative Arts
Extensive opportunities were offered by the Am-bridge Area High School Fine Arts Department to students who showed interest in the visual, literary, and performing arts. In art classes, color and design were stressed. Many students worked with oil paintings, in which they were given the opportunity to employ the glazing techniques of the “old masters.” One-man shows in the Senior High Library exhibited work done by art three and four students. Dramatics students, by increasing their knowledge on famous playwrights and renowned poets, learned of past influence on the present-day theater. Choral classes were designed to develop better singing habits for the students through participation in group and solo work. Some musically inclined students preferred band. Throughout the football season, band members accompanied the Bridger team and played a major role in providing school spirit at games away from home. Rather than taking part in a specific art, others chose to study music theory to learn of the outstanding composers and musicians of the world.

Physical fitness and good health habits are essential to an individual’s well-being. Hygiene and physical education classes teach students to appreciate, promote, and preserve good health standards in their own personal lives and in the community.
The gym sports program varied with the seasons, the increasing availability of numerous kinds of sports equipment, and the interests and capabilities of the students. Enjoyable diversions from the routine activities included tennis, bowling, soccer, archery, and folk dancing. Aside from gym class instruction in basketball, volleyball, and softball, students developed skill in these sports by taking part in intramurals. During the winter months, calisthenics, tumbling, and gymnastics spiced steady diet of basketball and volleyball.
In conjunction with the physical education classes, hygiene classes explored the best methods of sickness and accident prevention as well as first aid and home nursing skills. This year, group teaching has proved very effective, particularly in the study of first aid.

Languages are Beneficial to Cultural Study
Because of the natural boundaries created by oceans, mountains, deserts, and seas, peoples of the world became separated into many groups. For this reason, the various languages of our world have developed. Today there are more than 2,800 different languages. Ambridge Area High School offers the study of seven of these languages: Latin, German, Spanish, French, Russian, Polish, and Italian.
With few changes, our English alphabet was derived from the Latin alphabet. Long after the use of Latin in conversation was discontinued, it became the language of Middle Age scholars. Today it is retained by the Roman Catholic Church and employed by many scientists. The Romance languages offered, Italian, French, and Spanish, descended directly from the Latin. As many of the world’s great mathematicians and scientists arc of German origin, the German language is helpful to students pursuing careers in those fields. Russian and Polish gives students an opportunity to learn more about the culture and language of their ancestors.

Driving an automobile can be an enjoyable experience, but can also be dangerous. Statistics prove that over one million Americans have been killed in automobile accidents since the vehicle was invented. This illustrates the vital need for the education of new drivers in the operation of automobiles and the rules of the road.
Ambridge Area High School offers a driver’s training course in two phases, auto theory and actual driving in traffic. In the classroom, auto theory students learn driver qualifications, traffic laws and violation penalties, care and operation of a vehicle, and good driving attitudes. In the school’s student-driver cars, they gain experience in traffic on streets and highways. Here the students’ alertness, skill, and timing can be developed. Also, proper driving habits and a courtesy for other drivers and pedestrians are taught by the instructor.
A complete course in driver’s training is an asset not only to young drivers but also to their community. Persons instructed in safe driving set an example for others and can greatly reduce the number of deaths and injuries on the nation’s highways.

Good Library Facilities Provide Aids to Study
A library provides knowledge and information on many subjects for persons of all ages and interests. We can share the experiences of others by reading about their thoughts and achievements. We can study all that scientists, historians, and philosophers have learned and compiled through the ages. Up-to-date information in all fields can be located in periodicals, magazines, pamphlets, and newspapers. The great literary works of the past and present can be enjoyed.
The two libraries of Ambridge Area High School offer a wide selection of fiction, nonfiction, and reference books. Students are aided in their choices by a librarian or an assistant. A librarian is always on hand to help students locate reference materials, or to offer advice about the wide selection of reading material that is available. The assistants are fellow students who have elected a course in library science. They have been instructed in the use of the card catalogue and the book classification system.
Each year many new and interesting volumes are added to the shelves of the libraries. Every effort is made to provide books and materials suited to the students’ educational needs, to develop their desire for reading, and to stimulate their interests in many fields.

39Math Courses Meet the Needs of Every Student
Mathematics has played a vital role in our constantly changing technological society. Keeping abreast with these changes is the Ambridge Area High School mathematics department. The curriculum is designed and diversified to appropriate the needs of its many students. Through the utilization of new methods and up-to-date textbooks, pupils are instructed in the basic fundamentals in various fields. Courses offered in general mathematics supply students with the principal concepts necessary for well-rounded knowledge. Refresher Math I and II serve this purpose. Essential to the college-bound student is algebra, which forms the basis for further studies in more advanced mathematics. Algebra I and II teaches the solution of problems and equations by means of symbols. The measurement and construction of lines, surfaces, and solids with their relations is the goal of geometry students. In the senior year, students who desire to do so may elect trigonometry and college-preparatory math. They measure sides and angles of triangles, and ascertain relations between them with the aid of the slide rule. To the exceptional pupil, a course in calculus is offered.
Geometry students Bernard Dipolo and Dorothy Wilamonvski learn the art of constructing geometric figures with compasses and protractors.

Through the years, home life has drastically changed as a result of improvements and new inventions. Modern appliances have simplified the task of housework. Recently developed machinery and tools are an aid in minor repairs and home improvement projects. To prepare for the future roles of homemakers and wage earners, students must be instructed in the everyday practical skills. The Practical Arts Department of AHS serves this purpose.
Girls who elect the home economics course find it complete and well diversified. Training is offered in cooking and sewing, as well as etiquette and nutrition. Study also includes family relationships, home management, proper dress, child growth and development, and home hygiene. Many rewarding vocations are derived from knowledge of various phases of home economics.
The industrial arts program aims to give pupils a background that will help fit them into the world of work. The basic portion of this course is mechanical drawing. Through the use of blueprints, students can plan projects of their own designs. These ideas may later materialize in the wood or metal shop. Safety and good workmanship arc stressed at all times. Since many students will seek employment immediately upon graduation, they, also must be trained. An elective course in distributive education is offered in which the student attends morning classes and is given the opportunity to practice salesmanship in the afternoon by working at one of the local stores or business houses.

Science is the knowledge and understanding of nature and the search for the truth about all material things. If we are to advance steadily in this field, intelligent and well-trained individuals are necessary. To provide the education required, Ambridge Area High School offers a diversified science curriculum.
The Senior Science course emphasizes the practical aspects of science as the student meets them in his everyday life. Learning the life processes of plants and animals is the concern of biolog)' students, who explore the fields of botany, zoology, and physiology. Chemistry involves the study of inorganic matter. Laboratory experiments are performed and data is recorded by pupils observing various chemical reactions. While studying energy and its effects upon different materials, physics students participate in demonstrations to prove or test the applications of principles. An advanced course, consisting of meteorology, geology, astronomy, and oceanography is keyed to the interests of those desiring a career in the scientific field.

History Analyzes Principles of Government
The chief purpose of a social studies program is the development of a national pride and national patriotism. In addition, an appreciation for the customs and institutions of other lands is gained. Through the study of ancient and modern history, civics, and politics, students are prepared for the future privilege and responsibility of citizenship as voters and possible officeholders.
Ambridge Area High School offers a varied social studies curriculum. In freshman civics classes community government and the rights and duties of citizens are learned. Pennsylvania history teaches the foundation of the state’s government. Sophomores learn the significance of world events, past and present, in World Cultures. A working knowledge of American history is offered to students in the junior year. Affairs of the nation are studied and analyzed, bringing their causes and effects to attention. In the last year of high school, seniors complete their social studies training with Problems of Democracy and Economics. Since the qualities of good citizenship and the ability to manage income are necessary traits in a member of society, .hese two courses are excellent complements to the students’ education.

Shop Boys Learn Trade Skills For Future Jobs
In a highly industrial society such as ours, there is a rapidly growing demand for skilled workers in all fields. A comprehensive vocational program must be provided to train students in the basic manual skills. AHS offers such a program in four areas.
In the automobile shop, boys perform major and minor repairs on cars. They do body work, tune-ups, and overhauling jobs. The electric shop teaches industrial electricity and residential wiring. Students in this division perform a helpful service to local residents by repairing electrical equipment and appliances. The machine shop prepares boys for entry into the field of tool and die making, as well as providing training for those planning to enter the engineering profession. The correct use of hand tools is learned in the wood shop. House models are built with the idea of teaching proper construction. Advanced projects, such as roof framing and stair building, are undertaken by seniors. Some cabinet making and carpentry is also done.

In the Same Spirit of Enthusiasm . . .
“Enthusiasm is the genius of sincerity, and truth accomplishes no victories without it.” Working, laughing, and playing together, the Harmonists employed the truth of that quotation to gain the fellowship that their name implies.
Realizing that friendship and laughter make work lighter and more rewarding, they made games of apple picking, haymaking, and harvesting. Singing as they worked, the Harmonists met their chores and obligations with vigor and enthusiasm.
Today’s student life activities spice school routine in much the same way as the Harmonists’ quilting bees and haymaking parties did then. Student life is where the candid, the commonplace, and the unusual lappens, and it is here that the students’ enthusi-sm lies.
Stimulated by the companionship and good times f school life, students developed this same spirit of thusiasm, pride, and loyalty to their school and ; things they accomplished through it. Student : is indeed the very heart of all that is remem-ed of one’s high school days.
The modern "hootenany" trend was introduced into several activities and was enthusiastically welcomed by Ambridge students.School Bells Ring as Ambridge High Students
loess to the football fi,l l during the '64 season was not always through a gate.
The close of a long summer, the faint sounds of distant school bells, and the renewal of old friendships were highlights of the initial weeks of September and welcome days to most Ambridge High students. With the restful memories of a fun-filled vacation, students found the beginning weeks of school most helpful in preparing for the two long semesters of study and achievements. As a climax to the first football game, the Garnet and Gray dance gave new and old students alike an opportunity to become acquainted.
Activities in the form of clubs and other groups found October an ideal time to initiate new candidates as well as to renew the oaths of last year’s members. Although the hustle-bustle of initiation procedures seemed endless, the closing weeks of October usually found the clubs in well organized groups, ready to carry on the year’s activities.
Two new clubs were given charters this year, the World Affairs Club and the Future Journalists of America.

Senior Guides, such as Eileen Gliptis, greeted parents during visitation week.
With the faint clues of an oncoming winter, Novem-ber brought to Ambridge students the close of the football season, marked by the traditional game with arch-rival Aliquippa. Student enthusiasm, as well as team spirit were boosted to new heights by the first outdoor assembly and the pre-game bonfire, which was expertly managed by the members of the Student Council. Enthusiasm, however, proved insufficient as the Bridger’s couldn’t get rolling against the Quips and were forced to sacrifice the victory to their cross-river foes. Open House gave parents a chance to chat with the teachers of their sons and daughters, and view the educational facilities of Ambridge High. The auditorium stage was transformed into a palace throneroom as the Junior Class presented their class play, “The Mouse That Roared.” Wintry December brought about the beginning of the basketball season. As Christmas vacation drew near, the Student Council completed their plans for the annual Mistletoe Ball, “An Old-Fashioned Christmas.” The Ball provided an excellent opportunity to put forth warm season’s greetings and best wishes for a successful new year.

Beginning the new year on the right note, students complied with the annual “locker clean-out,” and found most of the homework papers and other articles which were thought to have been lost during the first semester. Andrea Krol, Quarterback Queen, reigned at the Quarterback Banquet, where outstanding players of the football squad were given particular recognition along with the all important cheering squad. Ambridge High was honored to host a foreign exchange student, Doris Panzio, who had chosen Ambridge as her temporary alma mater. Since the closing weeks of January also marked the first semester’s end, the increased study and last minute “cramming” were evident of the upcoming semester exams.
Cold February set the stage for this year’s Senior Class play, “Ask Any Girl,” which was shown to be successful by the fine attendance it drew. The Continental Cupid, sponsored by the F.T.A., gave students a chance to relax from the tension of recent exams and enjoy social recreation in a pleasently decorated atmosphere.

Ambridge High Students Combine Talents in
Although the cold winds of winter remained throughout March, seniors found significance in the month, when on Senior Day, they were given an opportunity to put forth their accumulated instructive abilities and take over the teaching chores for an entire day. The dramatization of the all-school play, Pioneer Go Home, gave outstanding Thespian members a chance to put forth their finest acting abilities. The girls seemed to dominate the sports scene during the closing weeks of March with spirited cheers leading to the traditional Yale-Princeton basketball game.
The first signs of spring’s warmth were paralleled by Ambridge students with their annual musical presentations from the high school’s well rehearsed music department. The vocal category was displayed at the Spring Choral Concert while the instrumental renditions were presented at the annual Band Concert. Outstanding students being initiated into the National Honor Society was the feature event during the last days of April, as students found that spring had arrived and the stowing away of winter’s garments was appropriate.

May and June areHighlighted by Seniors’ Graduation Exercises
May brought to many students the first signs of the semester’s end, and to many Seniors, the end of their high school years. Once again the lessons were reread and facts were drilled as students attempted to prepare for final exams. Also on the minds of most juniors and seniors was the final dance of the year, the prom. The last minute preparations and the hectic rush of over-anxiousness were climaxed hv the
formal grandeur of the occasion. Returning to school for the last good-byes and farewell tokens, seniors now awaited the arrival of graduation, while underclassmen saw only another year gone.
June came quickly but passed slowly as Arn-bridge students found that school days seemed to drag enormously when the weather was so inviting outside. Finally, graduation night bade the departing seniors a fond farewell, and the last day of school rolled around as a climax to an active high school year.

In the Same Spirit of Participation . . .
Thrifty and industrious, the Harmonists combined work and pleasure; turning tedious chores into enjoyable recreation. Harvesting, haymaking, and apple-picking became picnic-lunch outings, with everyone lending a hand enjoying himself, too.
After an abundant supply of food had been harvested for the winter, the Harmonists assembled for their annual autumn feast celebrating a bountious season. The women spent the entire day preparing food for the festive occasion in the community kitchen.
Although recreational forms have greatly changed, people still seek the satisfaction gained by working with others as a group. In the same spirit of participation, Ambridge Area High’s activities and organizations offer constructive and creative diversions from a steady diet of textbooks and homework.
The enjoyment and experience gained by participation in these activities rounds out the individual and makes him a greater asset to his community. Through these mediums, enthusiasm and school spirit arc expressed and vividly brought to life.
Participation in extracurricular activities is considered an essential part of the educational program at Ambridge High.■■

FT A Helped Stimulate Interest in Teaching
One of the most active career organizations of Am-bridge High School is the Future Teachers of America. The club members not only participated in a wide variety of programs and recreational activities, but they also learned about the field in which they planned to work. In its third year of existence, the chapter has increased its membership to 179 members.
During the autumn, the FTA ran a concession stand at the football games in order to raise funds for its various local conventions. The annual “Continental Cupid” Valentine’s Dance, also helped to enlarge the club’s funds and provided students with a chance to get together and enjoy an evening of lively fun. On a more dedicated basis, senior F.T.A. members took charge of classes on “Senior Day” along with other qualified students. This day gave members a chance to experience some of the trials and tribulations of the teaching profession.
This year the FTA selected seven members to attend the state convention in Harrisburg which was help in April. However, the whole organization was invited to attend the local spring convention at Thiel College, which helped junior and senior members plan for their future education.

67Program Committee Helps Finance Forensics
Helen Garliek and Sidney Gulentz, members of the program sales committeet practice sales technique while awaiting the fan’s arrival.
Throughout the football season, members of the Program Sales Committee sold eye-catching programs to football fans who wanted to keep informed of the player line-up. Mr. Lysle P. Shaffer, sponsor of the club, planned and designed the attractive programs, which were then sent to Waugh Arnold’s to be printed.
The girls practiced their sales techniques the afternoon of the game, but as time for arrival of the fans drew nearer the girls prepared to put these techniques into practical use. Dressed appropriately for their out-of-doors tasks, these club members stationed themselves just inside the paying gate, or made their way through the crowded bleachers to sell their “merchandise” to the spectators. The members usually worked in pairs, and as one handed the program to the customer, the other collected the money for the program. The money was put into the cus-tomery small box, later to be counted and turned over to Mr. Shaffer.
The profits made from the program sales helped to defray the expenses of the Forensic Society.

Finance Committee Handles Money with Ease
Do you remember the girls who stood at the stadium gates and collected tickets before each football game? They were the twenty-four members of Mr. Hors-man’s Finance Committee. Whether punching season passes at the gates or selling tickets to a steady stream of people, these girls performed their services well.
As an interested audience watched the first act of a class play or the 8:H kickoff of a football game, the Finance Committee girls counted the night’s proceeds and turned the money over to Mr. Horsman for safekeeping.
Mr. Horsman assigned the girls to work in pairs at the class plays, football and basketball games, dances, and at the annual Yale-Princeton game. In order to obtain the greatest efficiency, the more experienced girls sold tickets and counted money while the others collected tickets at their assigned posts.
ONE of the many duties of the finance committee included collecting fees from students entering the National Merit Scholarship Program.GIRLS’ LEADERS CLUB—Front row: M. Sonich, D. Welling, C.

Gym leaders are often required to lead classes in group exercises.
Girls, dressed in red gym suits and carrying whistles, are envied members of the Leaders’ Club. They set up equipment for the gym classes and assisted Miss Yost, the girls’ senior physical education teacher. On April 13, the Ambridge High School Leaders’ Club hosted the annual Play Day. Local area schools sent representatives to meet in various contests, such as volleyball, basketball, and relays.
Leaders’ Club tryouts arc held for junior and senior girls who can meet the qualifications of membership. Selection is based upon their personality, citizenship, leadership, scholastic and athletic skills.
The girls were an odd looking group on initiation day. They wore softball gloves on their heads, soccer shields on their legs, and “birdies” in their ears.
After school the old Leaders’ Club members treated the inductees to a dinner. An impressive candlelight ceremony later, formally initiated the new members who promised to uphold the “health, safety, and sportsmanship” of the Leaders’ Club.Competitive Spirit Promoted by Fencing Club
In preparation for the coming area-wide fencing assembly, the Fencing Club began its weekly practices with loosening-up exercises and foot-work drills. Next, with masks for protection and foils in hand, students participated in bouts which helped them develop coordination, precision, and agility. Weekly workouts were held under the skilled supervision of Mr. Walter A. Carter, sponsor of the club. To provide variety, students occasionally played the game of Round Robin. This game gave all members a chance to take part in competitive rounds for the championship of that particular week.
On February 18, the group journeyed to Chatam College for a fencing tournament. Here bouts were held which displayed the skill and experience of students throughout the area. When the eventful day ended, those who desired further training and practice in this sport signed up for an additional course offered by the college.
Two fencing club members practice basic fencing skills.

The National Thespian Society is an organization for dramatically inclined students. In order to gain membership in the society, a person must earn ten points on one of the club’s many projects. The points can be earned by acting, or by serving on one of the play committees, such as make-up, publicity, scenery, or the costume committee. Upon achieving the required number of points, new members were formally initiated in the society.
New Thespians were awarded Thespian beanies of blue and gold, national colors of the society, which bore the traditional comedy and tragedy masks. They also received a year’s subscription to “Dramatics,” the official Thespian magazine, and a membership card granting life time membership in the club.
This year the Thespian Society successfully helped produce the Junior Class Play, “The Mouse That Roared.” They also aided in the production of the Senior Class Play, “Ask Any Girl.” The All School Play, “Pioneer Go Home,” which was the last play of the year, was sponsored by local Thespian group, Troupe 1032.

Jr. Red Cross Conducted Charitable Programs
The only requirement for joining the Junior Red Cross is the willingness to take part in the Red Cross program. It is a program of both education and service. Junior Red Cross groups work closely with senior chapters, and follow Red Cross ideals and policies.
This year the Amhridge Chapter of the Junior Red Cross conducted two meetings each month. In addition, several members attended county-wide meetings, at which problems and projects common to all chapters were discussed. For the various holidays colorful favors were prepared and sent to area hospitals. At Christmas time, a special committee volunteered to decorate the Beaver County Children’s Home.
In the fall, a group of interested students journeyed to the Sewickley Valley Hospital. Here they were taken on a guided tour by a staff nurse. Students became acquainted with hospital procedures and equipment and were invited to view the new wing which was recently completed.
In the spring, members were chosen to attend a summer camp at a local college. The trip was financed by the club from dues collected during the year.

AAJCC Aids With Test Grade Distribution
The Ambridge Area Junior Curriculum Club proved its importance throughout the year. During the week that followed the semester tests, members were busy delivering test-grading results and test curves. Members of the organization were carefully selected by a few members of the faculty. The A.A.J.C.C. members were not only busy with grade distributions, but they also served at after-school faculty luncheons.

Squads Rendered Useful Audio-Visual Services
Special lighting and sound effects are important factors during an assembly or school play. The stage lighting squad, under the able supervision of Mr. Hertnecky, are specialists in this field and are invaluable to a successful production. These boys work backstage to produce the various lighting changes that must take place during a play production.
Numerous machines are used to guide the students toward a deeper comprehension of the school curriculum. Slides, tapes, movies, and records were supplemental to the regular textbook material. Mr. Hertnecky’s audio visual aids’ squad operated and maintained the machines and equipment.
The pressbox announcers worked side by side with Mr. Drake, faculty advisor, at all home football games. Their main task was to identify the players and keep Mr. Drake informed of their movements. The squad is sometimes called upon to make the announcement at the end of an assembly that students must return to their first period class.

76Usherettes Serve In Uniform For Class Play
Under the sponsorship of Miss Amelia Karnavas and the leadership of their president, Diane Kudra, the Usherettes performed many duties at school events. The members began the 1964-65 school year by ushering at the football games. The girls smiled cheerfully and repeated, “Right this way, please,” as they led spectators to their reserved seats. Posing as soldiers, they dressed in black slacks, bright red jackets and white blouses and passed out programs for the Junior Class Play—“The Mouse That Roared.” This performance was repeated when the seniors staged their class play. Whether ushering at ball games or at school plays, the girls gladly gave of their time after school hours and enjoyed their work.
The girls pay dues of fifty cents annually and use this money for various worthwhile projects. This year the Usherettes purchased black and white pins, which identified the girls as members of the Usherettes.

Talented Students Pursue Scientific Interests
Through experiments and projects, budding young scientists shared their knowledge and interests with other members of the Science Club. “Students were informally introduced to the various fields of science, and became acquainted with demonstration techniques,” explained Darrel Black, president. Among the fields chosen for discussion and exploration were biology, chemistry, physics, electronics, and genetics. Several members undertook projects from each of these fields of interest. All equipment and text materials on hand were made accessible to them.
They researched and presented their project to the group. In so doing, freshmen as well as seniors were offered an opportunity to research in their field of interest and to take an active part in the bi-monthly meetings.
One of this year’s outstanding members was Stephen Truth, who scored a perfect 800 on the chemistry division of the College Entrance Examination. This was the second consecutive year that a member of the Science Club had achieved such an honor.

Under the cover of initiation frolics stands one of the most highly honored organizations at Ambridge High. Only students with high grades and a good background in Social Studies can gain admission to the Historical Society.
One knew the Society was starting in on its year of activities when new members walked through the halls dressed in the costumes of eminent historical figures of the past. They were accepted into the society formally at an evening dinner where guest speaker, Miss Amelia Karnavas, showed slides of Greece taken on a recent vacation.
To raise funds the Society operated a concessions stand during the football season, sold packages of historic documents, and sponsored a Thanksgiving Dance in November. This year an exciting “Shindig” marked one of the social highlights of the school year.
These projects went toward financing the Society’s trip to Harrisburg for the state convention.

Combined Madrigal Produces Fine Concert
Sophomores, juniors and seniors blended their voices to comprise the Senior High Madrigal.
Under their proficient director, Miss Laura Jean Rice, the various vocal groups presented an outstanding Christmas choral program. Highlights of the concert included the following selections: “Let Carols Ring,” “The Birthday of a King,” and “Jesu Bambino.”
During the holiday season the senior madrigal sang in the halls and later other chorus members joined to sing in the traditional manner around the Christmas tree.
The Junior High Chorus, under the direction of Miss Kathryn Troll, followed the program of the Senior High Madrigal.
Several senior members of the Madrigal were chosen to sing in the Midwestern Chorus. The State Regional Chorus will have two representatives from Ambridge, Andrea Probsdorfer and Harry Moffitt.

Gym Aids Demonstrate in Phys. Ed. Class
Girls known as gym aids were chosen from the freshman and sophomore physical education groups to assist Mrs. Palmer, girls physical education instructor, in her efforts to improve the gym program of our school. Procedures for the selection of these girls were unlike those used in previous years. As they explained, demonstrated, and counted for an exercise drill their leadership ability was checked. They then displayed their knowledge and understanding of basketball rules by refereeing a game during a class period.
Once chosen, the gym aids assumed the duties of taking attendance, demonstrating new skills, and recording test scores.

School Pride Is Maintained by Student Council
If there is an idea to express or a complaint to make, the place to go is the Student Council. Under the guidance of their sponsor, Mr. John Budimir, this body of homeroom representatives gives attention to all business brought before it.
During the Christmas season, the Council promoted the holiday spirit by decorating a large tree in the lobby of the school. Hard work and cooperation among members resulted in one of the most successful Mistletoe Balls in years. Through careful planning their theme, “An Old-Fashioned Christmas was beautifully executed. The Student Council also co-sponsored Senior Day, giving seniors an opportunity to teach classes and experience some of a teacher’s dilemmas. To show their interest in the school’s appearance, Clean-up Day and Dress-up Day were held during the report card period.
This year a new bulletin board was donated to the school by the Council.

Guidance Helpers Aid Counselors with Details
“It is more blessed to give than to receive,” was the motto of the eight girls who unselfishly gave one period a day to work in the Guidance Office. They sorted career pamphlets, corrected standardized tests, compiled survey results, and ran numerous
errands for AHS counselors. These helpers, chosen from a list of volunteers, were characterized by their dependability and their willingness to give of their time without neglecting their studies. Various commendations have been awarded them.

Booster Club Members Elevate School Spirit
A common sight on days prior to baskrtball games are the boosters making signs and decorations to encourage the Bridgers to victory.
Clusters of paint cans, art paper, and paint brushes cluttered the main lobby long after the last bell rang, as Booster Club members decorated the halls Yvith gayly painted signs in an effort to raise AHS’s football and basketball teams to victorious heights. These bright and often witty signs greeted students the next morning and put them in the mood for the pep assemblies and the ensuing game. Ambridge routers Yvere in good attendance at all away football games too, as Booster buses Yvere provided.
This year’s fund-raising projects included the sale of toothbrushes. Boxes of toothbrushes sticking out of purses and lodged on locker shelves Yvere a strange sight indeed, but the sales Yvere so high that a second shipment had to be ordered. Profits from these sales Yvent to finance the Booster buses which provided transportation to and from the away games.
89Honor Society Holds Thirty-Ninth Induction
Mrs. Shenot, faculty advisor of the National Honor Society, discusses the qualifications of a future member with George Poutous and Dave Sysyn.
One activity of the N.HS. is the sale of garnet and gray pompons.
“I pledge myself to uphold the high purpose of the National Honor Society—to maintain and encourage high standards of scholarship, character, leadership, and service.” With these words the gray robed inductees of the Honor Society pledged themselves to this highly coveted chapter. The Society held their thirty-ninth ritual of induction on April 22. A solemn atmosphere filled the auditorium w'hen the opening exercise began.
Speeches on character, scholarship, service, and leadership were given and the pledge was recited. Afterward the Society treated its new members their parents and guests to a tea in the cafeteria.
Under the sponsorship of Miss Amelia Karnavas and Mrs. Rosemary Shenot, the Society sold pompoms at the home football games to raise money for their scholarship fund.
Old programs and yellow' roses, the flower of the Society, may be stored aw'ay and forgotten for a time, but the feeling of achievement and enlightenment that they stood for will always be close to us.

Attendance Aids Improve Class Attendance
Desks placed at regular intervals along the corridors of the Ambridge Area High School marked the posts of the hall Monitors. These students were excused from their studyhalls during the school
year to take their assigned positions. By recording the names and destinations of students found in the halls after the late bell rang, they decreased loitering and helped improve discipline.

Gene Evanitsky ponders an idea for a new cartoon for the next edition.
A new era in the Silhouette’s record of reporting the news and activities of the students of Ambridgc Area High School was entered this year. In previous years the Beaver Valley Times had published our school newspaper. However, due to an overflow of requests from other schools for the same privilege and a lack of news’ space, the paper had to discontinue this policy. Miss Virginia Griffith, the sponsor, and the editors found that the most economical way to solve the problem was to engage a local printer to do the job. Having overcome the most important obstacle, the staff began gathering the news, and in no time, the paper had gone to the presses. Students anxiously awaited the first edition. Although a small fee was charged, the student body readily subscribed to our paper.
Dave Ehrenwerth discusses the main points of editing a high school newspaper with fellow workers, Terry Makowski. Dan Eppley.

DECA Gives Students Practical Job Training
DECA Club, Distributive Education Courses Association, filled a growing need for a vocational course in distributive occupations. Maintaining a minimum of fifteen hours a week in school, the twenty-three members of the DECA Club spent another fifteen hours a week in distributive occupational employment.
DECA offered a solution to student financial difficulties by combining theory and practice. By enabling students to hold down a job and attend school at the same time, five potential dropouts finished high school this year.
DECA members spent their mornings learning English, business math, typing, and distributive business theories. Afternoons and evenings, they could be seen putting this theory to practice in many local business establishments. Both student and merchant profited by this arrangement, as public relations improved, a better grade of employee was available, and the dropout rate decreased.

Sun and World Affairs Promote Global Peace
Having students participate in something is one of the best ways to show them the way it operates. This is how the Student United Nations under the guidance of Mr. Serrafino Fazio is worked. Its members research countries belonging to the United Nations and obtain an insight into the goals and workings of this world body.
Throughout western Pennsylvania there arc fifty-four participating schools in the S.U.N. organization. Each school is assigned countries that are official members of the United Nations. Ambridge’s seventeen delegates were assigned Senegal, Somolia,
and Upper Volta. The Ambridgc delegation attended monthly meetings held either on the campuses of the University of Pittsburgh or Carnegie Tech in Pittsburgh. All of these meetings were in preparation for the two day mock United Nations’ General Assembly meeting held at Carnegie Tech on March 11 and 12. Here they learned through actual experience the workings of the General Assembly, World Court, Economic and Social Council, and Trusteeship Council. The interesting workings of this organization has made it one of the most accepted ones at Ambridge this year.

Mr. Desanzo, sponsor, and the Bridger staff have for the third consecutive year, brought honors to our high school. The 1964 Bridger received the coveted Keystone Award, the highest award given by the Pennsylvania Press Association for high school yearbooks. The Medalist Award given by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, and an Excellent rating by the National Yearbook Association were among other honors bestowed upon the book.
Last spring, the initial plans for the 1965 “Bridger” were drawn.
After a general theme was decided upon, a miniature layout was submitted to the Foote and Davies Company in Georgia. As the year progressed, copy writers, typists, and photographers hurried to meet their deadlines.
After all materials were compiled and rechecked, the final proofs were returned to the publisher for printing. Only student response and the ratings received from a panel of judges will indicate the success of the 1965 “Bridger.”

On January IS, Ambridge Area High’s newly organized chapter of the Future Journalists of America received its official charter from the University of Oklahoma. Silhouette editors and Bridger staff writers and editors were invited to membership by Mr. Desanzo, sponsor. Members were chosen on the basis of their journalistic abilities and accomplishments.
The Silhouette and Bridger staffs were not able to take advantage of the critical services available through the home office because of the late arrival of the charter. Other services that will be of use to future staffs through the terms of the charter include a monthly bulletin, a lending library of scholastic publications, journalistic tapes and visual aids, and professional counseling if requested. Although the club was still in the process of being organized, this year’s members received their subscriptions to the F.J.A. Magazine and were honored with F.J.A. insignia pins at the Awards Assembly in April.

Debate and Journalism Inspire New Ideas
This year, several new members were inducted into the Quill and Scroll. This organization is an international honor society composed of high school journalists. Those eligible for membership in the society were writers for school publications, such as the yearbook and the school newspaper.
Mr. Desanzo, sponsor of the local chapter, awarded gold pins to worthy members at the awards assembly for scholastic achievement in April.
To those students wishing to engage in formal debate, the Forensic Club presents the opportunity. Negative and affirmative speakers are alternately given the opportunity to voice their positions and reply to opposing speakers. Through these debates, students learned to state their ideas clearly and concisely.
The Forensic Club, sponsored by Mr. Shaffer, was financed by the selling of football programs.

In the Same
Spirit of Perseverance . . .
Before Economy was recognized as an established community, the Harmonists suffered many crop failures and profit losses. With a persevering, hearty spirit, they continued to work together and were soon rewarded as their agricultural and manufactured products found a market in the Pittsburgh area.
Determination, cooperation, and hard work became the by-words of this industrious group of people. Thus, the Harmonists embarked on several decades of prosperous trade and gained wide-spread influence in the development of western Pennsylvania.
This same spirit of perseverance is evident as one observes the courage and good sportsmanship displayed by the members of the Ambridge Area High’s athletic organizations. Whether they won or lost, the Bridger football and basketball teams played with determination and cooperation.
Intramural and interscholastic sports provide opportunities for students to learn athletic skills, self-discipline, teamwork, and above all, a strong sense of competition and determination.Varsity Football Emphasized Co-operation in

The 1964 Bridgers, opening the season against Hopewell, their new cross-river rival, were stunned by the fired-up aggressiveness of the Viking attack. Finding themselves unable to penetrate the Hope-well defense for a tally, the Bridgers realized a 12-0 defeat before a capacity crowd at the Aliquippa Stadium.
Determined to avenge their exhibition loss, the Bridgers traveled to New Castle to open their WPIAL play. Sparked by the versatile running of halfbacks Patterson and Shcleheda, the Ambridge offense managed to dominate the scoring. The result was an impressive 6-0 victory for the Bridgers.
In their first home game of the season, Ambridge faced the Har-Brack squad before an enthusiastic crowd of about 5,000. The Bridger defense, led by tackle Ron Kamzelski, held like an iron wall and time after time threw the astonished Har-Brack ballcarriers for key losses. Having little difficulty in rushing repeatedly over the goal, the game ended with Ambridge over Har-Brack by a 19-0 margin.
Inspired by their undefeated record in double-A games, the Bridgers moved on to Reeve’s Stadium to take on the highly-rated Tigers of Beaver Falls. Under the worst playing conditions of the season, the Bridgers were aided by the muddy turf when a Tiger fumble of the opening kickoff was recovered by an Ambridge defender in Beaver Falls territory. On a following play, quarterback Skonieczny called on fullback Andrus to carry the ball. To the surprise of everyone, Andrus broke wide open and sprinted all the way to pave the road to a 6-0 Ambridge victory, as a torrential rain plagued any scoring attempt for the remainder of the contest.
In an attempt to continue their unbeaten record, the Ambridge eleven returned home to do battle with the Sharon Bengals before a good crowd. The underdog Bengals, however, showed their intent to spoil the evening for their opponents by preventing the Bridger quarterback from completing a single pass, while allowing only one touchdown. The final tally on the boards showed Ambridge in a heart-breaking 14-6 defeat.
105Extra Effort by the Bridger Defensive Line
Remaining at home for an exhibition game with Central Catholic, the Bridgers had hopes of ending the perfect record of the Vikings from Pittsburgh. It was a different story for the Garnet and Gray, however, as the Vikings dominated the scoring throughout the entire game resulting in a decisive 27-0 win over the battling Ambridge team.
The Bridgers, before a home crowd of some 4,000 fans, faced off against a visiting Ellwood City squad. The defensive Ambridge linemen managed to hold off the powerful Wolverine offense and with less than a quarter remaining the score lay knotted at 13-13. In the most surprising comeback against the Bridgers during the entire season, the Wolverine managed to secure six quick points and then ran out the clock. Again the Bridgers tasted defeat by a 19-13 margin.
The following week, as Ambridge met the Hurricanes of Butler in another home game, a hopeful crowd watched the powerful Butler defense hold the mighty Bridgers to a 39-0 defeat.
Co-captain Roskovsky crashes through the banner to lead the Bridgers onto the field in the tradition of all home games.

Coach Radi made use of every spare second from the sidelines in presenting expert advice to quarterback James Skonieczny.
In an attempt to prevent its first losing sea-son in five years, the Bridger squad journeyed northward to duel with Farrel, who were still in search of their first win. With the aid of heavy yardage gained by halfback Hazinski during the second half, the Bridg-ers maintained a consistent lead over the outclassed Farrel squad and secured a 21-13 win in the final quarter of play.
Having regained some needed confidence, the Bridgers set out to protect their overall record of four wins and five losses in their final home game against undefeated, archrival Aliquippa. The Bridgers started off with a strong first quarter, but were unable to crack the Quip defense for a score. The Ambridge defenders made a fine showing but were unable to prevent the highly ranked Quip runners from twice plunging over the goal. Then disaster struck as a Quip defender plucked off an Ambridge pass and galloped into the end zone untouched, putting the Quips in front 20-0. Despite the skillful display of running by fullback Stary-szak in the second half, the Ambridge eleven could do nothing with the powerful Quips, and had to settle for a disappointing 20-0 defeat. The Quips, taking advantage of the victory at Ambridge, went on to demonstrate their agility by capturing the cherished WPIAL championship.

IllVarsity Basketball Encouraged Ball Handling to
The 1965 varsity basketball season, although it docs not seem impressive by merely noticing the win and loss record, may be termed a success in many aspects. From the beginning of the season the Bridgers realized that their lack of consistent height among the varsity team members would prove to be a disadvantage. Attempting to make up for this deficiency, the squad spent many extra hours drilling for fast ball handling and shooting accuracy.
Beginning the pre-season play against New Brighton, the Bridger quintet couldn’t seem to match the scoring of the determined Lions and the game ended in a 53-61 defeat. The following week, the story was much the same as the Ambridge five were served up another loss at the hands of the Monaca squad. The tables then turned in the favor of the Ambridge players as they were able to down their next six opponents in order, capturing the championship honors at the Hopewell Holiday Tournament.
The Bridgers, entering section play with a 6-2 pre-season record, met first with the Tiger quintet of Beaver Falls. Sparked by the fine 21 point performance by senior Bill Jula, the Ambridge squad drubbed the Tigers by a 59-44 count and looked ahead with high hopes.
Calculating the opponent's constant height advantage, the Bridgers awaited good shots rather than sacrifice rebounds.
As a climax to his fast break down the floor, Bill Jula drives under for this well executed lay-up.Balance Lack of Height

Consistent Scoring by Determined Seniors
Their high hopes, however, were to no avail as the Bridgers, despite fine defensive teamwork by Bob Sheleheda and Tom Bly, could not secure a single victory in six attempts. Then, in the return duel with Beaver Falls, the Bridgers finally managed to find their second win of the season. The following week, before a jam-packed home crowd, the Ambridge squad upset the highly rated Sharon team by a 72-65 margin. Scoring honors in this contest were again claimed by seniors Bill Jula and Bob Sheleheda.
After a three game slump, the Bridgers returned home to face the New Castle squad before another overflow crowd. The Ambridge fans watched four Bridger players hit double figures in the scoring column to shade the New Castle five by only two points.
In the season’s final game, the high spirited Bridgers traveled to rival Aliquippa High School to put a scare into the first place Quips. With an early lead but submitting only in the last half to a 52-69 defeat, assuring the Quips of the section championship. Despite the losing record, the Bridgers’ ability to pull upsets over several top-rated teams is a fine example of sincere teamwork and determination, and made Coach Ed Drake worthy of commendation.

116A Long Win Streak Highlights J.V. Season
The Bridgers junior varsity basketball team, aided by the fine coaching of John Wylie, made a fine showing during the 1965 season.
The squad began the season at New Brighton where the first victory of a seven game win streak was claimed. Time and time again, junior Dave Bucka showed his precise accuracy by swishing through a high percentage of the team’s two-pointers. Then as they came into contact with the higher rated teams of the section, the Ambridge players managed to secure only a single win out of their next six games. Slowly regaining the confidence they had gained in their opening contests, the Bridgers managed to edge past the Sharon and Ellwood City teams by close margins, giving the Ambridge squad two additional wins to bolster their record. Junior George Botsko, setting the scoring pace in both games, gave fine examples of well-executed offensive maneuvers. To provide an added advantage, tall and lanky players, John Senkevich and Frank Kaufman, helped the Bridgers dominate the rebounding action. The Ambridge team, out of the four remaining games, managed to claim two victories, losing to the strong Butler and Aliquippa squads. The record at the end of the season showed the junior varsity with a hard-earned 13 win and 7 loss performance.

The 1965 junior high basketball squad, for the first time in many years managed to complete a perfect undefeated season. Probably the biggest asset to the team throughout the entire season could be most easily described by naming the team’s sensational scoring leader, Dennis Wuycik. Big Denny came up with a season total of 390 points, more than twice as much as his nearest teammate.
Rolling over their first six opponent’s with no major threats, the Bridgcrs found competition a little more rugged against the rival Aliquippa squad. At halftime the score showed the Quips ahead by a 15-18 margin. Led by the combined defensive action of Jahoda and Wuycik, the battling Bridgers managed to come back for a 39-33 win before a crowd of disappointed Quip fans. In the following game against undefeated Rochester, the Ambridge quintet demonstrated again their second half talents as they came back from a ten point losing margin at halftime to hand the Rochester five their first defeat.
During the season, hard practice and drills supervised by Coach Steve Garay helped Denny Wuycik develop his valuable “dunk shot” and enabled starting players, Taylor and Jahoda to perfect their shooting accuracy. Having maintained their perfect record, the Bridgers found their hopes of an undefeated season riding on the final game with the strong Aliquippa team. Fortune smiled on the Ambridge five, however, as they were able to dominate the scoring and pave the way to a 51-33 victory. This marked the first time in more than a decade that the Bridgers were able to win both games from the rival Quips. Wild and jubilant celebration followed as the “little” Bridgers celebrated their most successful season of the past several years.
When he found himself in a light spot, Rich lorfido found opponents had little defense for his "fade-away” jump shot.
Coach Steve Garay found himself in the showers as part of the celebration after the game which assured an undefeated season.
Often when the opponent's defense tightened, lanky Dennis Wuycik found the only direction to go was up.

Baseball Squad Loses Many By Small Margins
Not only showing his capabilities as a fine outfielder, Jerry Muzyka also proved to possess a powerful hitting ability.
The 1964 Bridger baseball team began the season in fine fashion by nipping the rival Aliquippa team by a 4-3 margin. After playing seven consecutive innings without a score, Ambridge managed to break the ice for four tallies in the eighth and by holding the Quips for only three runs, were assured of the win.
It was a short and lonely taste of victory for the Ambridge squad, however, as they dropped the next five consecutive games by small but decisive margins.
Team spirit then shot to its peak for the comeback game with Aliquippa, and the Bridgcrs prepared themselves with extra practice and a self-assurance. Sparked by the fine defensive playing of Rich Stolar and Gene Jakubowski, the Ambridge team surprised the overconfident Quips and handed them their second defeat of the season.
Maintaining some excess talent from the Quip game, the Bridgers managed to put down the powerful sluggers of Beaver Falls by a 4-1 score in a game played at the newly opened Ambridge field.
The final two games of the season were fine examples of team effort on the part of the Ambridge squad as well as their opponents. The Bridgers’ inability to find the needed tallies during the late innings proved, as it did during most of the season, to be the main factor which enable the opposition to keep an edge over the Ambridge squad.
Despite a losing record of 3-8, the Bridger squad, as well as Coach Steve Garay, are to be commended for their fine display of good sportsmanship throughout the season.A nice grab by the catcher prevented a near wild pitch in the Braver Falls game, played at the new Ambridge field.

121Buck Edwards finds that the ability to put forth extra effort is an essential factor for successful participation in the shot put event.
Beginning the season with a fine, well-balanced team, the 1964 Bridger track team managed to claim victory in three out of their four dual meets, losing only to the Beaver Falls squad.
In the District Qualifying Meet, at New Wilmington, the Ambridgc team gave an outstanding performance and put an easy claim to the third place honors. Don Fitzgerald won the shot put while Frank Staryszak won the discus throw by setting a record of 144 feet, 5 inches. Junior Buck Edwards placed second in the discus and sophomore Pat Patterson won the pole vault for Am-bridge with a surprising record vault of 12 feet. In the running events, Mike Kastrounis won the mile run and teamed up with Allen Parapot, Larry Alushin, and Pat Bilyk to bring home the first place honors in the two-mile relay. The fine results at the District Qualifying Meet gave a well deserved climax to a successful season and showed the effects of the well-disciplined training conducted by the Bridger coaches, Mr. John Chapala and Mr. Dwight Piper.

The 1965 cross-country team, paced by senior runners Michael Kastrounis and Allen Parapot, completed what was termed as a fairly successful year by their coach, Mr. Dwight Piper.
The Bridger team, seeing the necessity for a strong training program, were at work each day after school churning off an average of two to four miles each session.
Their fine preparation came to a climax as the Bridger runners placed fourth in the District Qualifying Meet, making them the only representation from Beaver County in the W.P.I.A.L. Championship Meet. In the championship meet, the Ambridge team made a fine showing, placing tenth out of some forty entries and beating some of the state’s highly rated teams.
In the junior varsity cross-country running, a fine season record of ten wins and two losses was shown,
as the team lost only to Mt. Lebanon and Butler. In interscholastic golf, the Ambridge squad began its 1964 season with high hopes of bidding for the section title. With the team’s high spirits being continually renewed by the fine scores set by Ron Wolo-shan and Ron Janicki; the Bridger team rattled off four straight victories, each by a wide decisive margin.
Back on the road to victory, only after dropping two hotly contested matches, the team managed to breeze through the remainder of tne season without a loss, thus earning a berth in the sectional playoffs. Here, the Bridgers again came upon the strong Moon golfers, who were responsible for one of the previous Ambridge losses. After a fine showing there by both teams the match ended leaving Moon with a victory and the Section 8 title, and the Bridgers with an overall record of 10-3.

Yale-Princeton Basketball Provided Girls’
Today’s colorful, exciting Yale-Princeton annual All-Star basketball game is the result of an idea started thirty-three years ago at Ambridgc. The players are chosen by several try-outs held after school during the weeks before the game. Also chosen are cheerleaders, managers, and reserves for each team. The halls rang out with victory cheers for the Yale “Bulldogs” and the Princeton “Tigers” for several weeks prior to the game. The managers are responsible for preparing posters, making badges, and decorating the Y-P trophy case. The small but essential jobs promote the success of the game.
Action in this year’s game showed the Princeton team carrying the lead for the majority of the game with the final score showing the Tigers ahead by a margin of 27-26.
Not only does the Yale-Princeton game promote athletics among the girls, but also aids in breaking the monotony of school’s daily routine at this time of year.

The opening jump was always an exciting start to the intramural basketball games which were played Mondays and Wednesdays.
The intramural program of athletics at Ambridge provided an opportunity for participation in various competitive sports to all students, whether they be interscholastic stars or interested scholars. The program was designed to meet the individual tastes of both boys and girls. It covered in its broad range of sports, basketball, volleyball, softball, bowling, tennis, ice skating, table tennis, and various other sports.
The facilities of the Greater Ambridge Area have set the stage for the development of this fine intramural program, and the increased attendance and participation by the students have determined its success. The sponsors, instructors, and other personnel directly associated with the intramural program are deserving of sincere commendation. Through their efforts a program was developed which provided pleasure, enjoyment and a source of athletic recreation. It also developed a sense of clean competitive spirit, a high morale, and an excellent opportunity to maintain personal fitness.

133The modern world recognized the progressive achievements and inventions of the Harmonists,
A modern pump displayed the Harmonists inventive progress.
In the Same Spirit of Progress . . .
In 1824, the Harmonists established their third settlement at Economy and proceeded to make rapid progress in its development. From a small group of struggling settlers, they grew into an industrious, self-sustaining community.
As children, they received valuable training in many practical skills which enabled them to take their places in the society as adults. They were able to look back with humble pride at their accomplishments in agriculture, industry, and education.
In the same spirit of progress, the students of Am-bridge Area High prepare early for the world they must face after graduation. Choosing the correct courses, consulting the guidance counselors, taking achievement tests, and applying for jobs or college admissions are the first essential steps to future success and progress.
As AHS students graduate and finally take their leave, they begin to appreciate the many opportunities that a high school education opens to them. As the Harmonists have proven, the key to real success is preparation.
Graduation climaxed the student's progress through high school.FRESHMEN: Abraham — Mozes

As school resumed in the fall, seniors returned to fulfill their last year at AHS. It was a year of concentrated study, numerous social and athletic events, and participation in many extra-curricular activities.
During the first term, David Sysyn, John Rohal, Shirley Krupski, and John Koodrich were elected senior class officers. Seniors cheered enthusiastically at football pep assemblies and games; including the traditional Ambridge-Aliquippa game. The highlight of the holiday season came at the annual Mistletoe Ball, where students danced in an atmosphere of “An Old-Fashioned Christmas.” The Senior Class Play, “Ask Any Girl,” proved a rollicking success. In March, Senior Day provided an opportunity for students to experience the headaches, and rewards of a high school instructor. The most important social event of the year, the Prom, took place on May 7.
On graduation night, June 2, 435 seniors accepted their diplomas and sang their beloved Alma Mater for the last time.

ZuchowskiThe variety of manufactured goods expressed the self-sufficiency of the Harmonists.
Lacking modern means of communication, the Harmonists posted most notices and announcements on the community’s milk wagon.ADVERTISING
In the Same Spirit of Enterprise . . .
Having a good market for their products, the Harmonists were economically stable. Goods from their cotton, silk, and woolen mills sold from Pittsburgh to New Orleans. Whiskey distilling was an important industry in Economy until it ceased to be profitable when the government placed a revenue on its sale.
Because of the honesty and good business policies of the Harmonists, their products stood on their own merits. In the community itself, news and advertising were posted on bulletin board on the side of the milk wagon. As it made its daily rounds, everyone gathered around to read the notices posted there.
With the advent of radio, television, and other mass media communication systems, advertising has become an important key to modern business. In this highly competitive age, businessmen must keep the image of their products ever before the public through advertising.
Ambridge merchants have found that advertising in the Bridger is one effective way of achieving this. Honest promotion through good advertising is the mainstay of profitable business.
With encouraging banners, Ambridge students shoived school spirit.Economy Radio and T.V.
