Four years ago, while VVorld VVar ll was at its height of ferocity,
the class of '47 began its high school career at Elders Ridge. We made
our share of usual freshman mistakes, most of them trivial, until some-
how when we had finished the year much of the haze had disappeared.
Like all sophomores we came back in September 1044, eagerly
anticipating seeing the new class of freshmen make the same mistakes.
Like the proverbial sophomore, we were probably "silly," but we didn't
think so. jane Chakan was our president that year. lncidentally our
classmates began to excel in sports. The happiest news of the year
came just before the end of school when we learned that the war with
Germany was over.
Before school began for us as juniors, total victory had been pro-
claimed to a weary world. Vtle were thankful that many members of
our families and some of our classmates would be returning home.
Our whole theme for that year was "Peace-it's wonderful." XVith
many restrictions lifted we could look forward to a normal school
career. ln fact, we began with a great deal of zest by raising money to
take the class of '46 to Kennywood for the annual junior-senior outing
which had been prohibited during war time.
Then came the fourth and Hnal year with many of us anxious for
the year to come to a close so that we could try our wings in a world at
peace. But to many, a kind of nostalgia for days that soon would be
past filled our last wear. Wle made new friends that year and saw many
new faces on the faculty and soon-almost before we realized it-the
last test was over, the last bell had rung, and we were graduates of
Elders Ridge High School, diplomas in hand, saying good-bye to all
the days that we had grown to enjoy.

The Commercial Club organized this year under the sponsorship of Mrs. Edmunds. The first
meeting was held on November 21. 1946. Officers were elected and a constitution drawn up. The
purpose of the Commercial Club is to do commercial work for the teachers of our school. This relieves
the teachers of many duties.
The Club is for juniors and seniors only. One must average a three or over to be eligible.
There are twenty-six members.
Meetings are held regularly. Aside from work, the members provided enjoyment for them-
selves. Different activities were held during the year. including parties and initiation.
Each member did his very best to make the Commercial Club a success which it really was.

Although we didn't have a very successful football season we did have a good team Most of
our defeats were to schools of a higher class. Lack of experience was the main difficulty the boys en
countered. We started the season with a nine game schedule which was one of the hardest schedules
in the county. On this schedule was a very highly rated school in Ohio At the end of the season we
had five losses, three wins, and a tie.

of twenty-three games. Of these games ten were league contests,
'l'he school played in Section 19. lY.l'.I.rX.L. this year and placed. in a tie with Plum Town-
ship. for third place for league honors. In the county tournament the "Ridge" was beaten by In-
diana in the preliminary contest for the Group I title.
Coach lfuszek ably tutored the team and was well pleased with the season, although he would
have liked to added a few trophies to the school trophy case.
.'XltllOLlgIll no top honors were taken by the team as a whole. some of the boys received recogni-
tion for their playing ability and sportsmanship. "Satan" 'l'eyssier was elected to the lirst string
of the Section 19 All-Stars with johnny Loyisa and 'AI-Rolo" lfinotti being' listed with the players
for honorable mention. Lovisa was placed on the Group l All-Stars of Indiana County: Finotti
