Crouse, supervising principal ot Edgewood Schools, promoted, this year, as in the past, a school program designed to meet the challenge of a changing world. ln coping with increased enrollment, teacher appointments, curriculum enrichment, budget es- timations and other related administrative du- ties, Mr. Crouse demonstrated his awareness of Mr. Foster C. Crouse, Supervising Principal. the responsibilities of educational leadership. This administrator's many years at Edge- wood as a teacher and supervising principal have provided him with a sympathetic under- standing ofthe problems and interests of the stu- dents. Moreover, such an association, giving an opportunity for analyzing, comparing and evalu- ating educational trends, has resulted in the con- tinuance ot an academic program that occupies a prominent place in "The Edgewood Story." Miss Louise Doty, attable and eiticient school secretary, spends many hours in executing the duties involved in the smooth, running of a school oftice.

Quick meet in regular monthly meeting. ,Schonl QDLIJUL To provide for the educational needs of the boys and girls of Edgewood has been one of the primary obiectives of the five members of the Edgewood District School Board. Believing in high academic standards, the Board has formulated policies and procedures that are destined to establish standards of high scholastic endeavor at Edgewood. Mr. Alan Garland, president, Dr. Arthur R. Koenig, vice president, Mr. Edward Strothman, Mrs. Charles Macfarlane, Mr. Robert Campe, con- stitute the voting members of the Board. Dr. J. G. Quick acts as secretary. .1 . I-. . . 'l7'Zc6'lwuL, Jcarhelz, ln her role as guidance counselor, Mrs. Elizabeth McClure advised and counseled many students on subiects varying from selection of colleges to matters of conduct. To assume this position, Mrs. McClure found it necessary to relinquish her sophomore English classes. However, that department's loss has been the whole schocl's gain, for under her su- pervision, the area of guidance has been made a vital and informative part of the school's pro- gram. Mrs. Elizabeth M. McClure HEAD TEACHER AND COUNSELOR .SdmL67fw Well-planned curriculum and special services aid in development of youth With the emphasis on high academic stand- ards being promoted in this period of world-wide tensions, Edgewocd High School has maintained a curriculum that aids the student in his prepara- tion for future study in institutions of higher learning. Providing an excellent background in the academic field by offering four years in the languages, French, Latin, and Spanish, fcur years of mathematics, English, and social studies, and three years of science, Edgewood gives the stu- dent an opportunity to prepare himself for com- petition in any field. Furthermore, courses in ad- vanced English, speech, college algebra and iour- nalism create further opportunity for advance- ment on the part of the interested student. Art uperintendent of Buildings, David icFarlane, directs maintenance staff Administering polio shots is one of the many services f school. performed by Dr. Roland Neal, school doctor. Miss Dorothy Quinton, Mrs. Gurli Richards, Mrs. G. H. Schwarz- lcopf, Mrs. Mary Flick, Mrs. Dorothy Kelly, Mrs. Margaret Hiles. and music courses, too, offer the oppcrtunity for creative expression while studies included in the home economics, commercial and shop areas take care of those boys and girls who wish to partici- pate in the practical arts. Adequate instruction and special services were provided by the teaching staff of twenty- eight, a guidance counselcr, a doctor, a dentist, and a custodial force of tive men and one woman. A survey of the curricular aspects of Edge- wood High School indicates that it is a school de- signed to provide for the needs of the college bound student by offering those basic subiects, which, when mastered, will give boys and girls a feeling of academic accomplishment. Gene of the custodial staff lends helpful and friendly aid to students and faculty. Pot Winton explains her Buhl Planetarium prize-winning lotin exhibit to Clegg Holli- day and Carol Koppel.

What happy moments are re- lived as the members of the Class of 1958 reflect upon these four years! In recalling the activities ot their freshman year, they remin- isced about the 'Fun and excitement at the Freshman-Senior weiner roast. With the addition of the Forest Hills students, their sophomore year was highlighted by the acquisition of class rings, the presenta- tion of "Pennies from Heaven," their Soph Hop, and the production of "Club Sophomore," an assembly. Winning the Play Day banner proved their outstanding athletic ability. During their iunior year, they honored the seniors at their Junior Prom, "Hawaiian Holiday" and presented their second assembly. To climax this year they held a class picnic at North Park. Assuming the leadership of activities in their senior year, the Class of 1958 presented a play, "Family Circle" and held the Winter Prom, "Moonlight and Mistletoe." At Commencement, as they listened to Dr. B. V. H. Gilmer con- clude his speech, they realized that this was the last time they would be united as a class. However, they were consoled by the thought that, though they would all follow a different path, memories ot Edgewood would always remain in their minds and hearts. Senior Class officers Cynthia Hawkins, secretary, Mr. A. G. Glessner, class adviser, Carl Hein, president, Allen Parkman, treasurer, and Bill Birdsall, vice president, discuss agenda for the year.

The Yearbook Staff, headed by Cynthia Haw- kins and Marcia Schultz and under the direction of Mrs. Isabel C. Kerner, in changing from the previously used method of production to the let- terpress method, found itself faced by varied problems. These involved the compilation of a dummy, arrangement of layout, scheduling of pictures, and writing and re-writing copy. This year's staff inaugurated ci new feature when the members organized an assembly pro- gram to promote the 1958 Sylvan and to present the purposes of it to the students and faculty.

Work on the Edgecator Staff was designed to develop skills in accurate, concise, creative, and forceful expression of ideas and to foster habits of dependability, cooperation, and initiative. This publication, edited by Peg Whitney and Lola Motto, and carrying a staff of 35 members, pro- duced an eight-page, mimeographed, bi-weekly paper presenting as complete a coverage of the school as possible. The business staft, headed by Carol Mrosco, conducted the subscription campaign and cli- rected the circulation of the paper. The activities of the Staff were directed by Mrs. Carol Geis during the first semester and were under the supervision of Mrs. Isabel C. Kerner in the second half of the year. 49 Journalists gain experience on Sylvan and Edgecator Staffs Rage Cordic is informally interviewed by Marge Gillespie for an Edgecator article. Learning the audio and visual techniques of stage preformances and promoting the successful production of school programs were the responsi- bilities of Edgewood's stage crew. Among the settings created by the crew was a 1920 living room scene for the Senior Play, "Family Circle," the music department's show, "I Hear America Singing," and a college campus setting for the annual fashion show, "Miss Co- Ed."

Growing steadily since its organization five years ago, the group, which met mcnthly, had 35 members on its roll this year. In crder that all members could learn the basic darkrocm tech- niques, the facilities of their wcll-equipped dark- room offered an opportunity for the training of prospective photographers. Each year members gain valuable experi- ence by printing 400 grade school classroom phc- tographs 'for the PTA.

At the monthly meetings of the Club, the French students participated in interesting activi- ties which acquainted them with the customs and beliefs ofthe French. Movies, group games, dis- cussions about the way of life in France, singing of French songs all contributed to a better under- 59. gm, Linquists strive for fluency in speech standing of France. In addition to these activi- ties, most of the conversations during the meet- ings were in French, giving the students an excel- lent opportunity to use their knowledge of the language.

Functioning to promote greater appreciation ofthe culture and language of Spanish speaking countries, "El Circulo Espanol" outlined a program to fulfill this purpose. As a self-sustaining organization, the Spon- ish Club sold stationery and Christmas cards to raise funds to carry on various activities through- out the year. On December 16, a Christmas fiesta was held featuring the traditional breaking of the pinata. Co-operating with French Club, the Spanish group sponsored a dance entitled "The Franish Frolic." With Mrs. Maria Fluharty as faculty adviser, this year's Spanish Club was fortunate in having Joseph Estrada, "Pepe," a Spanish exchange stu- dent, to participate in and help with the activities. 53 First row-T.

Contrib- uting to the fulfillment of this, the members, under the guidance and supervision of adviser Mrs. Charles Raisig, entertained a group of young girls at the School for the Deaf by dramatizing a short skit and presenting refreshments and gifts to them. ln order to raise money for the purpose of sending a girl to Bethany College Conference in the summer, the girls held two fund-raising pro- jects, a sale of candy early in the year and the selling of baked goods in the Spring.

To advance these ideals the girls worked as nurses aides at Columbia Hospital in Wilkins- burg, organized a Christmas party at the Home for Aged Protestant Women, gave the Mother's Tea in May, and had speakers who talked on sub- iects pertinent to the interests of the group. To perform a service to the high school, members of the organization sold various types Evelyn, Marcia, and Carole prepare intricate decorations for "The Leprechaun Leap." of candies to raise money with which they bought new mirrors for the girls' locker rooms. Enjoying a swimming party, sponsoring the annual girl-ask-boy dance, "The Leprechaun Leap," and presenting a fashion show, all added up to a serviceable and satisfying year for the Senior Y-Teens.

Music club provides melodious entertainment To further the appreciation of music among the students of Edgewood, the Music Club, which met on the first Monday ot every month, orig- inated programs designed to fultill this aim. These were planned by Fred Albitz, president, Peg Whitney, vice-president, Barbara Nichols, secretary, and Bruce Bowden, treasurer, with the help and guidance of Miss Elizabeth Garland, music instructor. The highlight of the Club's activities this year was a musical production, "I Hear America Sing- ing," presented in February by the music depart- ment. The evening's program was planned by the students, and featured such groups as the aCappella Choir, Girls' Ensemble, Boys' Octet, Girls' Trio, Junior Chorus, the Top Hatters, and grade school groups. In addition, solo acts star- ring individual members of the Club added to the evening's entertainment. 9 Wluulr, Whether they marched on Koenig field or played in the auditorium, the instrumental or- ganizations of Edgewood added to the enjoy- ment and atmosphere of many performances. Under the direction of Mr. Robert Matzen, both the band and orchestra intensified school spirit. The band marched to several home football games, creating a great deal of enthusiasm among the spectators while the orchestra played for all school assemblies and special productions, setting moods appropriate to the occasion.

Dual cast stages "Family Circle" December 12 and 13 "'I intend to be an actress" was the statement reiterated throughout the play "Family Circle" by the leading character Cornelia Otis Skinner as played by Anne Cypher and Nancy Gilmer. This dual-cast play, presented by the Senior Class and directed by Mrs. Charlotte McLain, was given on December 12 and 13. Miss Mary John- son, student teacher, assisted in the direction, while Mimi Guth and Peg Whitney acted as stu- dent directors. Centering around the life of Cornelia Otis Skinner, its action was set in Bryn Mawr, Pennsyl- vania, during the summer of 1920. Throughout the play Cornelia tried to convince her mother, depicted by Lola Matta and Carol Flick, and her father, played by Frank Moser and Tom Wil- liams, that she had dramatic ability. Contributing to the love interest were the actions exhibited by Charlie, as portrayed by Bill Birdsall and Terry Beal. Matta, A. Cypher, F, Mo- Drago, H. Gray, D. Pea- rnck, N. calmer, T. Will ummm Festive occasions brighten routine of school life "All work and no play" is an axiom that has little appeal for the students of Edgewood. Though they believe that the primary purpose of school participation is that of learning, they also feel that engaging in social activities helps to develcp a well-rounded personality. Arranging and taking part in assembly pro- grams, dancing to the music of the latest records at Rec Hall, originating new ideas for decorating the Edgewood Club tor the fabulous dances ofthe year, formulating interesting club programs, go- ing to open houses are a few of the fascinating and creative proiects that till the off-school hours of the Edgewood youths. Specifically, "Cuddle in the HuddIe," Moon- light and Mistletoe," "Franish Frolic," "Date with an Angel," "Song of the South," will linger in the minds of E.H.S. students as being lovely and memorable events. Relaxation with conversation keynotes the lunch room activities for junior boys. ,Nga SJ , wx M k 1 ra w if "E': S1 . 1- K 5 YN Q 5 ,?,5.:,n X 4, x 5 :M 1. X -. Qi .ww 6' vi. f .

Posting a 4-3 record, this year's football team had the best season of any Edgewood foot- ball team in over half a decade. The greatest change over preceding teams was the improved morale, as the team went into every game with the feeling that Edgewood's team was at least equal to their opponents. Under Coaches Arthur Betts and George Rodgers, the youthful Vikings brought renewed pride to Edgewood. The second year of the single-wing offense at Edgewood High brought about a vast improve- ment over the previous year. In both offense and defense the team made progress, as the offense averaged 16.4 points per game, a 9.1 increase over last year, while the defense showed a 14.5 points a game increase, allowing the oppo- nents to score an average of only 7.7 points a game. The usual offense line was: Ends-Jameson, Heller, and Fleming, Tackles-Lohman, Gibson, and Lucidi, Guards-Leberknight and Zemenack, Jnufbal Gridders attain best record in over half a decade and Centers-Raisig and McAdams. The back- field consisted of DeMore and Johnston as quar- terbacks, Brown and Moorehead as tailbacks, Drago, Dodez and Rocco as fullbacks, and Sny- der, Huber, and Drago as wingbacks. The de- fense included Parkman, linebacker or tackle, and MacKay, center guard. This lineup includes four seniors, eight iuniors, seven sophomores, and one freshman, which gives next year's team eight returning starters and eight other lettermen. Each game a senior player acted as captain for the team. Zemenack, Leberknight, Drago and Parkman were the four seniors selected for this honor. Scoring the most number of T.D.'s was soph- omore, Bill Moorehead, with five touchdowns in the three games in which he played. Eldan Sny- der was second high scorer with four, Brown and Jameson with two, and Dodez, Rocco, Heller, Drago, and DeMore each with one touchdown for the Edgewood football team.

Playing ability, good sportsmanship, cooper- ation with team and coaches, are several of the qualities necessary for obtaining an Edgewood varsity letter. Fulfilling these requirements and receiving their Edgewood "E" were Seniors Allen Parkman, Henry Gray, Dick Drago, Chuch Leber- knight, Ron Zemenak, and Sam Colbeck. In the Junior Class, Don Jameson, George Lohman, Chuck Raisig, Glen Fleming, Stan Vlasak, Chuck Bair, Ron Heller, Rich DeMore, and Jack Huber were presented with this symbol of achievement. John Brown, Jim Gibson, Dick Dodez, Rich Lucidi, and Bill Moorehead were the sophomores who attained recognition in receiving their football letters. The only freshman receiving a letter this year was Howie MacKay. Reserves leap from bench as Vikings score. Every year an award is given to the out- standing athlete in memory of Skip Potts. The lettermen from both the football and basketball teams cast their vote for the highest honor given to an athlete in Edgewood High School. Don Campbell was the recipient of the Skip Potts award for 1958. FOOTBALL STATISTICS E.H.S. , 6 East McKeesport , E.H.S. ,. ,. ,. 24 Verona . ,. ,,,.

Vikings provide thrills for spectators Edgewood 6 - East McKeesport 0 September 13 Strong offense and defense were keynoted as Edgewood sneaked by East McKeesport. After keeping the ball deep in Ram Territory, the Vik- ings finally scored late in the fourth quarter on a 20-yard pass by Tailback John Brown to End Ron Heller, who galloped 40 yards for the win- ning touchdown. The running extra point was unsuccessful and the game ended 6-O. Edgewood 24 - Verona 6 September 20 Although the game started slowly, the Vik- ings easily mastered their traditional cpponent, Verona. Edgewood came to life in the second quarter with John Brown scoring on a 40-yard run and End Don Jameson scoring on a pass from Wingback Jack Huber to bring the score to 13-O at half time. Early in the second half Brown scored again, this time on a short run. The sec- ond string toyed with Verona as EHS worked up the field on the running of Scatback Ron Gonter Veteran players listen to pre-game advice of Coaches Betts and Rodgers. and finally scored on an end run by Wingback Eldan Snyder. Verona scored on the last play of the game to bring the score to 24-6. Edgewood 6 - Sharpsburg 21 September 27 Striking early, the Vikings sccred on a pass from Jack Huber to Don Jameson for a T.D. In the second quarter the Vikings fell apart and Sharpsburg scored three quick touchdowns on a long pass, a long run, and a short line plunge. The half ended 6-19. The second half was a stalemate with the only scoring being a safety for Sharpsburg in the third quarter to bring the final score to 6-21. Edgewood 0 - Centerville 7 October 4 Dominating this game was the defensive play as both teams held their opponents in check. EHS threatened frequently in the first half, but were never able to score, so the half ended O-O. The second half continued as the first until late in the fourth quarter when the Vikings fumbled on Ron Zemenak Dick Drago Henry Gray 7 , Qs. 'R X 5 1 ag air gg km 1 .

Thus, the Vikings completed the season runner-up in the Sharpsburg Tourna- ment and Section 16-B. In the exhibition schedule they defeated a section winner, McDonald, 60-47, the lnter-State Prep League champ, Shadyside Academy 51-45, the Verona team twice, 72-40 and 72-33, and the Alumni, 77-45, while losing to section win- ners, Avonworth, 40-77, and Sharpsburg 53-68, in the Sharpsburg tournament final. The section play had a sad start as the Vikings lost to Trafford in the small Trafford gym, 60-68. They snapped back, winning the next two decisively, and everything went well until the fourth game when they were defeated, 45-59, by the league-leading Wilmerding Wild- cats. After this defeat, they valiantly tried to set up a winning string, but were stopped by Wilmerding again, 34-41, to erase all title hope. ln all, they had a record of 16-5, 11-3 in Section 16-B play, and averaged 58.9 points a game, against 47.6 points for their opponents. The team was well balanced, with the first string being comprised of two rebounders, Heller and Fleming, two good outside shots, Huber and Campbell, and a playmaker, Brown, plus a well balanced bench. The J. V.'s also had a good year, compiling a 15-9 record, 11-3 in Section 16-B play. The team was comprised of an unusually strong group of freshmen, bolstered by a group of sophomore and junior veterans. Highlighting this year's intramural sports program was the basketball leage for non-varsity players supervised by Mr. Charles Huffman. The league, comprised of 11 homeroom teams, in- volved a roster of 100 boys. Junior homeroom 17 capped first place, de- feating senior homeroom 21, 36-35, in an over- time period. The members of the winning teams were awarded miniature trophy cups by the Edgewood Recreation Board in recognition of their victory. 18 ML VARSITY STATISTICS E.H.S.. ,, . , H40 E.H.S ...,,.,. ........ 7 2 E.H.S ....,... ,. ..., 72 E.H.S. .,,... ,...,.., 5 'I E.H.S. ..,, ,,.77 E.H.S ..,.. .. ..,,.,, .60 E.H.S .....,., . .

' and Khan , Ffzovlda, "Victory, victory, that's our cry," was the familiar chant of the Edgewood cheerleaders as they combined skill and energy to cheer this year's athletic teams to victory. A sparkling appearance was made by the quintet at the first football game as they dis- played their new maroon and white outfits. The cheerleaders collaborated with their sponsor, Student Council, to present an assembly based on a school spirit theme. Both the assembly and numerous pep rallies were designed to heighten S Jchbn, the spirits of many Edgewoodites. Marking the end cf the 1957-58 cheerlead- ing year was an assembly which featured both the basketball lettermen and the five regular cheerleaders. Advised by Mrs. Elizabeth McClure, this years' squad included Sue Conley, Margie Gil- lespie, Cynthia Hawkins, Sue Rengel, and head cheerleader, Janet Stoehr. Roz Roth served as alternate cheerleader while six-year-old Jeannie Stoehr was the mascot.

For twenty-five years the emphasis in girls' sports has been on intramural compe- tition. As an added incentive, the winners of the various tournaments have played several outside schools including Ellis, Win- chester-Thurston, Ambridge, Wilkinsburg, Shaler, and Chatham. Outlining the intramural schedules, planning activities and promoting girls' sports in general were the duties of Presi- dent Carol Flick, Vice President Marcia Schultz, Secretary-Treasurer Margie Gilles- pie, and Student Council Representative Janet Earhart. Teammates wait anxiously for the outcome of a spike. l 74 Since their sophomore year the present senior girls have been active in all phases of sports. They have won all intramural and interscholastic tournaments in which they have participated. This included out- standing victories in volleyball and basket- ball. According to Miss Cooper, "The enthu- siasm, skill, and sportsmanship displayed by the senior girls, namely, Sue Conley, Mary DeMay, Carol Flick, Cynthia Hawkins, Susan Rengel, Marcia Schultz, Janet Stoehr, and Peggy Wood, have been very gratify- ing." Participating in Play Day at Mount Lebanon on April 25 were Marcia Schultz, Cynthia Hawkins, Susan Rengel, Peggy Wood, and Mary DeMay, This event, in which 15 schools participated, included events in the areas of track, volleyball, ten- nis, swimming and related field events.
