Who among us does not thrill to an exciting adventure, a search for buried
treasure, Stevenson's "Treasure Island", Edgar Allen Poe's "The Goldbug"?
And have we not idly dreamed we were embarking on such an enterprise?
The great things we would do when we had finally completed our mission and
found the laden chest.
There is slight probability that any of us will actually experience such a
venture, and yet, each day we are exploring new fields and making new
discoveries, great and small.
As we are nearing the end of our voyage through public school, we are coming
to realize the vast treasure that we have uncovered here. We wish to share
with you the precious booty in our treasure chest, Apollo High School.
He ioyed of life's pleasures
All he could find,
Yet richest the treasures
He found in his mind."

We will recall the many extra-curricular activ-
ities which afforded us relaxation and a chance
to develop our social graces. Dances, sports,
and club activities all played a vital role in
our education for well-rounded living. Among
these was the prom we held honoring the i955
Here we see Mr. Shaheen conducting a typi-
cal problems of democracy class.Whenever
possible, contact is made with real life
situations, one of these being a field trip to
the county court house and county home.
Through increased knowledge we strive to
become better citizens.
Senior Class History
ln the full of T952 ninety-six perplexed, but eager, freshmen entered Apollo High School.
During our first year, we held a dance in October and a party on the last day of school.
The next year we participated in more activities. Besides holding our annual dance, we
raised our first substantial amount of money for the treasury by selling refreshments at
the Halloween parade. The highlight of our sophomore year was making a choice of
the preferred course to be taken through the remaining three years of high school.
The herculean task of raising money to finance the Jr.-Senior Prom was the main interest
in our junior year. Among our money-raising activities we sold Christmas and general
greeting cards, stationery, and magazines. Our junior year was climaxed by the Prom,
the theme of which was "Carousel,"
Finally, as great and mighty seniors, we headed the maiority of organizations, published
this yearbook, and decided a multitude of small but important matters pertaining to
our graduation and future plans.
Let us hope that the work we have done has left its indelible mark in Apollo High School's
history so that we may be long remembered.
The lught of our learnang
Is stull brightly burmng
Our thoughts ever turmng
To old Apollo Hugh
Our mem nes never fade
Of dear friends we have made
In days far gone by
The walls that have housed
All hopes for the future
The lnghts that have led us
Through llfe s stumbllng way
Nor wall we forget
The challenge we have met

The crew members are as vital to the safe passage of the ship as is the captain.
As underclassmen you must hold true to the course and adhere to your tasks
if the voyage from grade school to graduation is to be successful. Commence-
ment is your quest: diplomas await you in the treasure chest.

The student council asserts its authority by
controlling hall traffic.
As a representative governing body in our school, the student council
is comprised of members elected from each class and each homeroom.
Their purpose is the establishment of good relations between the
student and his school.
One of the main events ot the year was an open meeting in assembly
dealing with teenagers and safe driving. This was an outgrowth of
a similar meeting in Indiana attended by members of our student
council. The audience, comprised of the student body, was asked its
opinion on the subject, with many students responding.
The traffic signs in evidence in our halls and stairways are a result
of the council's effort to minimize congestion during class changes.
Money raising activities consisted of a bake sale, the sale of candied
apples after assemblies, and also the selling of home tire extinguishers.

The men put ashore on some small island for a chance to relax from the rigors
of life on board. Soon, in sport, they are inciting contests and fights between
crews and individuals. Relieved of their tensions they board ship and resume
the search for treasure. So we take time out to recall our days ashore.

, G. Shaheen,
The Apollo Tigers, displaying the sportsmanship that has
always been a tradition at Apollo High, fought their way
through a tough schedule and the 1955 football season.
Though they were adversely circumstanced, the Tigers played
many outstanding games. Three of these games, those played
with Washington Township, Pitcairn, and Bell-Avon, will be
more vividly remembered than the others. In the Township
game, the Tigers ran roughshod over their rivals and sent
their fans home happily with an 18-0 win. The Pitcairn game
reached its climax with the Tigers behind 6-0 in the fourth
quarter, when Rich Morgan scored two touchdowns within
two minutes forging Apollo ahead as they won their second
in succession. With Bell leading by seven points, the Apollo
team came from behind for the T.D. and the conversion
P9l"'lf tying the score.
The Tigers, with no home field on which to play, showing
mostly in the rain and mud, had many depressing losses,
particularly to Leechburg. But with fight and spirit they
emerged a better and wiser team.
Amassing an enviable record of wins was the undefeated
iunior varsity team. With four wins and one tie, the Little
Tigers proved they have what it takes to make a winning
We look forward eagerly to future years as Coach Joe Fuszek
and his assistants are left with a literal "gold mine" of talent
with which to work.
Captain in his senior year and let-
terman for four years, Ron dis-
tinguished himself at end, despite
the fact that his weight most of that
time was under 150 pounds. Spark-
ling defensively, Ron was selected
on many All-Star teams, including
the W.P.I.A.L. Class B First Team.

Apollo High's 1954-T955 baseball team, under coach Max Afanesko,
compiled a record of three wins, six losses, and one tie. Though not
league winners, the Tigers displayed a potential for better teams with
most of the starting roles played by underclassmen.
The game with Franklin topped the first of many exciting conflicts.
ln the ninth inning with two men out, two men on, and Apollo behind
6-3, Ron Miller blasted a game-tying three-run homer, only to have
the game called because of darkness after one extra inning.
Being Apollo High's newest sport, baseball has not, as yet, gained a
foothold in popularity, but it seems to be coming into its own. Much
credit is due Max Afanesko and his baseball team for their spirited
efforts and fine teamwork.

The chorus is comprised of Mr. Keefer's seventy-five songsters,
providing vocal programs throughout the year. Endless hours
of singing rehearsals produced the Thanksgiving program, the
Operetta, the Easter cantata, and the annual spring festival.
The operetta was a paramount undertaking which was not
fruitless. "Smoky Mountain", presented primarily to raise
funds for choir robes, was happily received by students and
If a student can carry a tune and read music, he is eligible
to join the chorus, thus providing himself with an opportunity
to cultivate his ability, "let forth" in a song, and entertain

Much backing was needed before we could "fit-out" our ship and start in
search of the treasure. It is with thanks that we here acknowledge the business-

uncovering of our treasure chest.
