History of Apollo
Apollo has a detailed and intensely interesting history, beginning with an
Indian village and extending after one hundred and twenty-five years to a friendly
average town, unknown beyond a radius of fifty miles, but loved by all who do
Perhaps one of the oldest landmarks of Apollo is her river, the Kiskiminetas.
This river is said to be second only to the Amazon in swiftness. The Kiskiminetas
can tell a singular and fascinating story. Hundreds and hundreds of years ago
even before the discovery of America, the Kiskiminetas witnessed the pagan rites
of the Mound Builders who lived on its banks. Evidences of these primitive people,
their homes, and their customs have been found down through the years. After
the Mound Builders came the Indians-Delawares, Shawnees, Mohawks, Iroquois,
and Tuscarawas. These savages roamed, hunted, fished, killed, and warred along
the ageless banks of the Kiskiminetas. Then came the Hood of white people seek-
ing adventure, wealth, and homes, driving the Indians westward ever westwardg
marring and blighting their primeval haunts, destroying forever the beauty that
belonged to the Kiskiminetas valley.
These white people cut down trees, laid off lots, built homes, tilled the soil,
and harvested their crops. Soon the Kiskiminetas beheld where once there had been
an Indian "sleeping ground," a peaceful little town filled with busy happy folk.
A great variety of trades were practiced ranging from tanning to the making of
steel. The Kiskiminetas was once a navigable river and Warren fApollo's old
namel was a prominent shipping point. But following the decline of the salt in-
dustry at Saltsburg, our river became practically unused. Then came the extinc-
tion of fish brought about by contamination from the surrounding coal mines.
Much thought has been given lately to the possibility of purifying the Kiskiminetas,
restocking it with fish, and by a series of dams again making it navigable. Such
a project, if carried out, would doubtless add much to Apollo and its beauty.
With the growth of a town comes the desire and the need to educate its in-
habitants through churches and schools. Many churches sprang up, took root,
and lived, until today Apollo boasts nine congregations and one in the making.
The first school was built at the southern end of the old graveyard. It was of
hewn logs and one story high. The seats were of slabs and had no backs. Due to
the growth of Apollo during the following hundred years, many school houses
were built and enlarged. Today Apollo has one of the prettiest high schools in
The welfare of these United States rests upon her common people-a strong
middleclass. Such people live in little towns just like Apollo. In the history of
Apollo can be found the fascinating story of a nation. We are now one hundred
and twenty-five years old.
Let's strive always to remain a vital and interested faction in our great land,
the United States of America.
It is difficult for the Senior Class of 1941 to
express their appreciation to Miss 1-Ienry for her
work in publishing this, the 1941 Kislcitas. Al-
though we had no money in our treasury and
although it was january-indeed late to start pub-
lishing a yearbook, Miss Henry willingly offered
to give her time and energy in helping us.
To her with our most heart-felt thanks do
we dedicate this book.
Mrs. Weaver, whose timely suggestions and
ideas steered us over many rough places, was par-
ticularly instrumental in helping us raise funds to
publish the 1941 Kiskitas. Under her direction
we made and sold valentines and sponsored a
Washi'ngton,s Birthday Ball.
To her also with deep appreciation do we
dedicate this book.
"Better late than never" became the by-word of the 1941 Kiskitas staff.
It wasn't really decided to publish this book until January. Then the senior
class launched themselves into a fast and furious whirlwind of bake-sales,
valentine sales, and dances.
A large staff was chosen because of the limited time but a staff cannot do
all the work alone-nor did we. The entire senior class cooperated. This
is deeply appreciated and to them we are most grateful.
The staff worked hard, selling advertising, books, writing articles, and
putting the book together. But we enjoyed every minute of it and it is our
sincere wish that you, who have this book, may enjoy it for many years to

History of Senior Class
It was a cool day in September when the Senior Class of '41 first came into
Apollo High School. We were as green as grass, but no one could tell us any-
thing. At the first assembly we marched down the aisles as big as could be amid
applause and snickers. Ar the Freshman Party, as was traditional, we received our
initiation, after which no one sat down for a week. We were privileged then, so
much, that out of the whole high school the freshmen were the only ones who
received lolly pops from Mr. McCracken after his wedding. At our first high
school dance, boys and girls alike put on their Sunday "go to meetin' " clothes and
were all set to "cut the rug." To our great surprise all upper classmen had on
school clothes. It was very embarrassing to us, but we soon discovered that it all
went into the good old times.
We acted so big when we got the chance to applaud the new freshmen in
assembly. We had our "breaking in" and felt wiser in our second year of school.
At last we, too, had reached the stage where we could be called upperclassmen. It
was such a thrill to feel thatiwe were no longer mere children. This was proved
to us by the fact that we were permitted to attend the upperclassmen Hallowe'en
Our Sophomore year soon skipped by, and then we found ourselves occupy-
ing the assembly seats of those who were now'seniors. From the very first we began
planning for the Junior-Senior Prom. We held one reknown bake sale at which
twenty pzople out of eighty showed up with baked goods to sell. Our class was
very fortunate in having its dues paid up. Due to this, we did not have to earn
quite so much money. Finally the long anticipated day had arrived. The com-
mittee had the gym decorated in blue and gold. One never would have known
there was school on Thursday. Girls were fluttering around bothering themselves
with last minute preparations on their attire for the evening. The boys were busy
ordering corsages and shining cars. To us, that night, Buddy Lee's orchestra
sounded like Glenn Miller, and the blue and gold gym looked like the Rainbow
Room. No one realized that the time was so near for us to make our exit from
dear old Apollo High School. I
At last we reached the highest, point in our High School careers. We had,
before anyone knew it, become seniors. It was necessary that we begin immediately
to earn money to cover the Prom and Banquet in the spring. We had stands at
football games and held bake sales. Our biggest money proposition was the class
play, "American Passport," under the able direction of Miss Martha King. Per-
haps we had too many activities planned for ourselves, but we were ready, willing,
and able. The most interesting of the projects was the "Kiskitas." We did not
get started on this, our school day souvenir, until January. It won't take our last
few months together long to fly. Soon we will be out in the world on our own, and
these past years will be looked upon through misty eyes.

candy, pop, et cetera, be left for the School Board to settle.
We give and bequeath to the following:
To Professor Crawford, we bequeath next year's list of failures.

use as he sees fit.
To Miss King, we bequeath next year's Barrymores and Garbos. '
To Mr. Armstrong, we bequeath a new package of paper and an adding ma-
chine to keep track of lessons.
To Miss Henry, we bequeath a car load of orchids for her work on the
And to the following members of the student body we give and bequeath:
To Bill Steele, we bequeath Joe Spencer's ability to play basketball.

Junior Class History
We are the Junior Class! For thiiee years now, we have been striving to pay
dues, to support class activities, to attend meetings, and above all, to prepare our-
selves for the responsibilities of the present year and the year to come. We have
not been idle.
As Freshmen, we entered A. H. S. in the fall of 1938. We quickly learned the
ways and habits of the "upperclassmen" although too often through unhappy cir-
cumstances. How well we remember the time we accidentally got into the
Senior English Class or the time we walked into Mr. Armstrong's. supply room
instead of the exit of room 300. Ah--but we were the famous "freshies" then.
The following year we really established ourselves as an outstanding class.
Members from the sophomore group became active workers of the Tri-Hi-Y, Glee
Club, Tiger Gazette, and other organizations in our school at that time. ' Incidental-
ly, 1940 was Leap Year and the sophomore lassies did not hesitate to take ad-
vantage of the situation. No sir, we aren't so dumb this year!
September of 1940 and we became upperclassmen at last. No sooner had we
got settled for the grind than we were called to assemble for a junior class meeting
-the first as an active group since entering A. H. S. Plans were made at once to
raise money for the Junior Prom and the class fund. A skating party was held on
October ninth which was a great success, both to the treasury and for those who at-
tended. fTreasury prior to skating party-8100.1 Nickel candy bars were sold at
the basketball games held in the high sphool gymnasium.
This year we have made progress in all curricular and extra-curricular activi-
ties. We have a large group of honor students having scholastic records of A's
and B's. Several of our classmatesf are outstanding in artwork, gymnastics, litera-
ture, and science. In all sports we are represented. fThanks to Steele and Cun-
ningham for varsity basketballlj Juniors are among the charter members of the
And now we are ending the third term in Apollo High School! For three
long years we have been earnestly seeking our goal, a step at a time, until at last
we reach the fiiial and most difficult stretch-the senior year. So far we have met
our difficulties and have conquered them. Now we cannot be discouraged. .On

History of The Sophmore Class
If we had a family Album of the Sophomore class, we should probably arrange
it like this:
Open the book to Page One. Why, who are all the children? That picture
was taken way back in 1939. We were in eighth grade, then. '
The next page reveals another group-only a little bit older and wiser. This
is of the class of '43 lvery distimguishedl as Freshmen following September 5, 1939.
And Now! And now, on the next page is a picture of a group of very bril-
liant looking ladies and gentlemen. The Class of '43 today.
Notice the following pages are pictures of our outstanding class members.
First, Louise Ankeny and Lois Ann Armitage-our class officers.
We played football, too, merely say A. H. S., and you say Hockenberry, Lees,
and a few more.
Basketball pictures include our two excellent class teams who seem to make a
habit of winning on the hardwood. Of course the Junior Varsity is crowded with
Perhaps we should follow these with some pictures of the six Sophomores on
the Tiger Gazette Staff or some of the Sophomore officers in the various organiza-
When we came into A. H. S., we made up our minds that we would join some
of the many school activities. Now, many of our members belong to Tri-Hi-Y,
Hi-Y, and G. A. A.
Of course we, as every class, have those few and far-between classmates who
put studies before fun. They think of "x-l-y:z" while dancing, and "Agricola
hliam docebat" springs into their mind at the Vandergrift game. Most of us are
discovering that it is no cinch to be a Sophomore.
An old joke says that there is nothing as proud as a Sophomore. We hope we
have not impressed you that way, for we are trying to be the same bunch of kids
that stuck their noses around the corner of the High School door two years ago.
We still have those girl-crowded "stag" parties anyway.
I will sum your second year in high school with a little fcornyj poem:
We liked our hrst year with you,
You gave us lots of fun,
But we've discovered since then,
The second is the one.

Freshman Class History
The Class of 1944 entered our great Institution of Learning on September 3,
1940, as a group of bashful students. They had only to wait two days for their
initiation, which was on September 5. The Freshies met the upperclassmen and
came through with flying colors. This initiation dance was the first one in the
Freshman social career. Their next big dance, on October 21, was their own private
affair-the Hallowe'en party. At this dance they gained confidence in themselves
and made a stagger at dancing. The Freshies were invited to most of the upper-
class dances, including the Christmas dance, the Washington Township Hop, the
G. A. A. dance, and the Washington Birthday Ball.
Two of the chapel plays this year were presented by Freshman home rooms.
They displayed their talents in acting when 310, Miss Hoofring's room, presented
"The Dearest Thing in Boots" and 308, Miss Cooper's room presented "I-Ienry's
Mail Order Wife." Both plays were a howling success, and the Freshies were
quite proud of their acting ability.
Many of our teachers have been impressing upon us the fact that our first
nine months in a high school career are the most interesting and important, which is
very true and wisely spoken.
The Freshmen have a few up and coming poets. Some illustrations of these are:
THE Poon Fmssi-:MEN
We Freshmen have to watch our step,
The Seniors say we haven't pep!
I wonder what in the world they'd do,
If they hadn't once been Freshmen too.
All Freshmen start to ,high school
And try to do their bestg
But soon they start to tell you
"Gosh, I need a rest."
A few are bright to start with,
Things go in their head, not out,
But most just look ,around and ask
What it's all about.
Initiation time soon comes,
Paddling's, dark halls-hear the roarg
We head for the gym-some Freshies
Some stumble round the floor.
You see them strolling through the halls
So happy, they could singg-
But when they're in the classroom
They can't recall a thing.
For instance, first thing teacher says
Is "Now we'll have a test."
All hearts sink-smiles turn to frowns
'And you can guess the rest.
But after the Freshman year is through
And all is said and doneg
They only hope the years ahead
Will offer half that fun.

With Coach Buzard at the helm and Marangoni and Heckman as chief
officers, the good ship "A, H. S. Tigerv left port on September 7 under
sealed orders. Early signs indicated a rough voyage, but all hands settled
down and pulled the old tub through with a much better record than was
expected. Upon the gallant ship's making port, her log was perused and
the following entries set down:
"Toward afternoon on the first day, the cruiser "East Deer" was sighted
steaming from the south with all hands on deck and preparing for battle.
The "Tiger" rounded to and gave her opponents a feeble broadside. After
two hours of skirmishing, both ships retired from the scene with neither
gaining any great advantage. Score: 0-0.
"Exactly one week later the lookout reported a strange vessel bearing
down on the "Tigerl' with every stitch spread. At the second volley the mast
of the "Aspinwall,' was shot off, and our noble craft sailed placidly on.
"At dusk on the following Friday the destroyer "Indiana" attempted
to creep in under cover of darkness, but the noise made by her inexperienced
seamen aroused our worthy vessel. Clearing the deck, the first mate switched
on the new 60,000 watt lighting system and awaited the foe. At the first
broadside, the "Tiger', gained the advantage and proceeded to dismantle
her opponent. Score: 21-O.
"The next night encounter was with the "East Pittsburghf, The battle
was a rather drab affair, neither ship showing much aggressiveness, and to-
ward dawn the enemy withdrew. Score: 0-0.
"Disaster overtook our noble craft in the form of the submarine, "Blairs-
villef' Surprising our ship, the "Blairsville" launched a torpedo that carried
away her rudder, causing her to wander aimlessly for several days. Score: 0-13.
"Speedily repairing the damage, the "Tiger,' once more patrolled the
seas. The first hostile ship encountered was the "Freeport,', and the Greek
Gods nearly shot her out of the water. Score: 32-0.
"The next battle was with the destroyer "Homer City." After a few vol-
leys, which nearly sank her, our opponent brought all remaining guns to bear
and loosed a tremendous broadside. Little damage was done. Score: 19-6.
"During the following fortnight, two armed merchantmen, the Q'Bell
Township" and the "Washington Township" were encountered off the coast of
Oak Hill. Both were poorly armed and were crippled at the first attack.
Score of each encounter: 12-0.
"On the return trip, the "TigerH had a slight skirmish with the "Cak-
dale," a small canoe, captained by a former Apollonian. Using only her light
artillery, the "Tiger" utterly demolished the little craft. Score: 20-0.
"The last engagement before entering port was with the battleship "Van-
dergriftf' The heavier craft brought all guns to bear and delivered a terrific
broadside, surprising our worthy seamen with its power. Score: 0-6. '
"Upon entering port, our gallant vessel was greeted with resounding
cheers and a great banquet. Farewells were tendered to Seamen Grimm,
Maragoni, Heckman, Hileman, lVlclVlillen, Newhouse, Reefer, Kinnard, and
Faber who will be missing on the next cruise. Their loss will be keenly feltf'

The Basketball Season
This yearls basketball team, in the opinion of Coach Buzard, was one of
the best teams he has ever coached. There was an abundance of good ma-
terial, the first team consisting entirely of five veteran Seniors and the second
team entirely of hve up-and-coming Sophomores. These two groups were
often alternated as units and this system seemed to work well, the squad win-
ning 14 and losing only 8 against some of the best teams in this part of the
The big news at the beginning of the season was the transfer of Apollo
from the easy Section XXI to the fast Section V. Fans were dismayed at the
strong opponents they would have to face, but the boys were undaunted and
proceeded to finish in second place, losing only three league games, two to the
champion Springdale squad and one to an inferior Vandergrift team that
played far over its head.
In non-league competition the Tigers won 7 and lost 5. The only teams
that they didn't beat at least once were Kittanning and St. joseph of Oil City.
The Kittanning team was not of the caliber of our Tigers, but Apollo just
couldn't seem to develop any scoring punch in either game. On the other
hand, the St. joseph team is one of the best in Western Pennsylvania and the
Tigers climaxed the season by holding them to a 35-33 score on their own
floor, the game being tied with ten seconds to gn when St. loseph sanlc a long
shot to take the lead.

Apollo High School Band
"Qne-two--three-Play!" And the Apollo High School Bancl plays,
malcing up with effort what it lacks in skill.
This organization is under the clirectorship of Mr. Clarence Sturgeon and
is made up of students of Apollo High School and Elementary Gradesl They
play at all the home football games, furnishing entertainment during time-
outs or between halves. Next year's group expects to get capes and caps
which will give the bancl a much better appearance.
This year four members of the band-Harry Cochran, Tom McCullough,
Bob Sturgeon, and Raymond Ankeny--were selected to represent Apollo in
the All-City Bancl which played at the Pitt home games.

This year Professor Sturgeon continued his policy of having the Senior
members conduct the orchestra in the monthly chapelsg each taking his turn
with the baton. The orchestra kept up its fine work as in the past and besides
playing for chapels and the Senior play, performed at several church, Ameri-
can Legion and Athletic Association activities. Several musical educational
movies also have been shown at the orchestrals regular Nlonday evening prac-
tice. For the Commencement program the orchestra performed the Allegro
ITIOVIIIBHI of the "Willia1n Tell Cverturef' by Rossini.

just ask any girl in Glee Club, and she will tell you it is one of the most
interesting organizations in our school. All year the girls anticipated the
weekly practices. They met every Wednesday under the direction of Mrs.
Myers. Their first big event was giving a program over radio station WKPA.
As this was a new experience for most of the girls, great was their excitement.
At Christmas time, Mrs. Myers, after training her songbirds to perfection, pre-
sented a most inspiring program of Christmas music. Two of the highlights
of this fete were the 'presentation of the famous "Hallelujah Chorus" by the
Glee Club and a solo by Mary Lou Gebheart of Indiana. In the Easter pro-
gram the girls wore their new vestments.
The Glee Club wishes to take this opportunity to thanlc Mrs. Myers for
her much appreciated and capable leadership.
Speech Club has been an outstanding activity of our school curriculum
for two years, having been organized in 1940 by Miss Patton, one of our able
English teachers. Because Miss Patton is an English teacher, she can bring
out many points to the members. Some of these points are: Tone quality,
posture, enunciation, and pronunciation.
There were about twenty members in the club this year consisting of
Juniors and Seniors only. The aim of this organization is to produce better
speakers in the high school.
The student body as a whole have a better conception of what this club
really stands for, since the program given in chapel near the end of this
school term. The members prepared several exercises including group read-
ings, pantomimes demonstrating posture and facial expression. Tongue twist-
ers brought out the lighter side of Speech Club.
It is a great privilege to belong to such a club during your high school

The Tri-Hi-Y Club in Apollo boasts an enrollment of forty-eight mem-
bers, made up of girls from the Sophomore, Junior and Senior classes. The
club has made steady progress under the capable guidance of Miss Jackson,
Miss Henry, Miss Hoofring, Mrs. King, and Mrs. Shaffer.
The club's purpose is to create, maintain, and extend throughout the
school and community high standards of Christian living. The platform is:
self-improvement, Christian fellowship, and united service. To try to attain
this goal, the club packed baskets of food at Christmas and Thanksgiving
times and distributed them among needy families.
To raise money for a fund used to send girls to camp, skating parties
and bake sales were held and basketball schedules were sold. One of the most
beneficial projects carried on by the club was a Bible Study Course continued
for eight weeks, taught by able leaders from the community.
The Hi-Y and Tri-Hi-Y acting together as host and hostess at a district
rally on April hrst was one of the outstanding attractions of the year. In
future years the club hopes to even surpass the high record already set.
This year, 1941, is the first year for such an organization in Apollo.
This club was organized by the boys in Apollo High School and is affiliated
with the National Y. M. C. A. organization. The club is a Christian organ-
ization composed of boys representing the Sophomore, Junior, and Senior
classes. Ir is the purpose of the Hi-Y to build a Christian community and to
maintain a high, Christian standard of living.
The induction ceremony was conducted by the Leechburg Hi-Y Club in
the Lutheran Church of Apollo. It is the hope of the club that it will con-
tinue to grow and to fulfill its purpose in the community during the coming
TllC OH'-lCEl"S of the club HFC!

G. A. A.
Every year the Girls' Athletic Association becomes more and more inter-
esting and 1940-41 was no exception. Under the leadership of Mrs. Ollinger
fMiss Knight to youl, the girls really went places. The program included
several bowling parties wherein the girls proved their ability to "juggle" the
pins. Let's not leave unmentioned the numerous spaghetti feeds and theatre
parties, the Christmas Party was one of the "big events in the lives of little
women." They really didn't mind washing all the dishes-it was lots of fun.
As usual, the girls' class basketball was supervised by the G. A. A. this
year. The basketball captain certainly worked hard making out schedules,
checking grades, recording points, and the like. At the close of the season,
the winning team will be presented with gold basketballs, and the champs will
be awarded the trophy. All in all, G. A. A. is grand.
The "Tiger Gazette" deserves a lot of credit from the student body for
its loyalty to them. Every month without fail the students have been able to
read about their school and find out some things about it which they might
never have known.
This scholastic bit of news is issued every month by a staff of thirty-
four students under the direction of four of our faculty members: Mrs. Smith,
Mrs. Johnston, Miss Patton, and Miss Hoofring.
Every year the staff and members have tried to pick an editor who is well-
liked by the students and one who has had experience on the staff. The editor
for this year is Betty Davis. Many of the other members of the staff are also
Seniors as is the editor, Janet Beck, News Editorg Ethel Boney and Tom Passa-
relli, News Staff, Mary Gallagher and Dorothy Ament, Features, Herbert
Stitt, Rewrite Editor, Jean Kerr and Marguerite Wylie, Art Staff, James Bush,
Businessg Marian Shockey, Circulationg Jean Kerr, Harry Cochran, Marian
Shockey, and William Rosensteel, Typistsg Richard Ferguson, Betty Jane
Crawford, Thomas McCullough, and Buster Passarelli, Mimeographing.
For those who are on the staff there are many means of education afford-
ed by the District Press Association and the Pennsylvania State Press Asso-
ciation which held its conference in Pittsburgh last fall. Many of the "Tiger
Gazette" staff attended. At this time, Apollo's "Tiger Gazettei' won third
prize in the P. S. P. A. annual contest.
The equipment which the staff uses for publishing its paper is very
modern. The large mimeographing machine was of recent purchase and this
year the staff is planning to secure a new type machine. It is a Master Under-
wood Typewriter which will aid in setting up the paper in different styles.
Funds for the purchase of new machines and equipment is obtained by
dances which are sponsored at the time of holidays such as Christmas and
Thanksgiving. Tea dances have also been a source for its revenue.
The Tiger Gazette wishes to take this opportunity to thank the teachers
who have so generously aided the student in publishing this newspaper.
The Class of l94l produced, under the direction of lVliss King, a modern
play entitled "American Passport," by Dana Thomas. The play had as its
theme--Americanism. Throughout the three acts we became more acquainted
with a modern American family. The father, played by Richard Ferguson,
was a modern Rip Van Wiiikle, who discovered, quite by accident, that his
wife, son, and daughtergljorothy Amcnt, Roy Gourley, and lithel Honey--
were Communists. He was aroused to this fact by his aunt, janet Beck, and
a neighbor, Marian Shockey. After this terrifying shock the father did all in
his power to stop his family from becoming a disgrace to society. Louella,
Mary Elizabeth Crawford, who added cheerful comedy, was put on a strict
patriotic "diet" so she would not become a Communist. Tom lVlcCullough
and Helen Cunningham, Syhil and Dickls friends, also aided the father in
making his family "more American." '

The growth of a community depends, to a large extent, upon the aggres-
sive and cooperative spirit of the merchants, professional men, industrialists,
and interested citizens. Apollo and vicinity has been fortunate in having!
civic-minded men and women who have helped promote industrial, civic and
educational growth. The Kiskitas staff pauses on the 125th anniversary of
the founding of Apollo to pay tribute to these people, both living and dead,
for the part they played in the growth of our town.
By means of Subscribers, Patrons and Advertisers, the Kiskitas was most-
ly financed. We thank them for their willingness to support our book by
their financial assistance.
There were others who helped in other ways-Miss Cooper, who so ably
assisted the Literary Staffg Miss Jackson, who aided the Advertising Staff.
To them we say, "Thanks!"
We also owe gratitude to Mr. Sprankle of Rawsthorne Engraving Com-
pany, to Mr. Brown of Record-Ziegler Printing Company, to Mr. Shaffer,
our photographer, and to Ralph E. Rupert for their consideration and help.
