can look back with a chuckle upon the things that were definite worries a
few months ago.
, The Staff, with Betty Pugh, editorg Dona Jean Rupert, associate edi-
torg and Miss Notareschi, advisor, set themselves to filling empty spaces
on the dummy with pictures and words that would serve as a 'pictorial his-
tory of the school year. The sports editors, Janie White and Ted Myzwin-
skig and business manager, lrene Clawson, worked equally well and earnest-
ly to produce a well-organized book.

The Commercial Club is limited to members of the Commercial Depart-

the club encourages members to put forth their best efforts. Throughout
the year the members have had various get-togethers. Among them were a
Spaghetti Dinner, a Surprise Birthday Party followed by a movie, the Jun-
ior Initiation Party, a Valentine Dance, and a Farewell Party for the sen-
iors. The club is sponsored by Miss Notareschi.

GIRLS VARSITY BASKETBALL
Coachcd by E. G. Brown, who did a very good job, the girls team had
a very shortseason. Playing the strong Saltsburg team first, they were
defeated on January 8, 21-17. For the second game the t?am went to Avon-
more by bus to down Avonmore 8-7. The game was very close all the way,
with Avonmore leading at the half 6-3. Both teams played rough and
fought hard. Playing host to the Alumni for the third game of the season,
the team was handed its second setback 24-20. Bell Township took the
next game from the girls 18-14. The Ridge went to Saltsburg for the re-
turn game and was defeated again 16-12. Determined to beat the Ridge in
the return game, Avonmore played rough and fast. Elders Ridge was
equally determined to win and defeated the Avonmore girls 13-11. The last
game of the season was played at the Ridge. Bell Township downed the
Ridge 20-19. The season record shows 2 wins and 5 losses. Although the
losses outnumbered the wins, the girls showed good sportsmanship and en-
joyed playing the games.
