edication MISS HENRY 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. XVEAVER 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.

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 know her. 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 western Pennsylvania. 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. I

"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 COXTIC.
