The staff of the 1953 Eli-Mon is proud to dedicate this book to the newly organized
Elizabeth-Forward Joint School Board and the administrators of the Elizabeth-Forward
Joint School District.
It is our hope and our belief that this jointure formed by Elizabeth Borough, Elizabeth
Township, and Forward Township will be a long stride ahead in the direction of better and
more modern educational facilities for all of the young people of the district. Looking
ahead, we know that this will lead to well educated citizens who will always be able to
point with pride to their school system.
Althou h man of us who are now in school will not benefit directl b the new
S Y Y y
buildin s to be erected, we shall continue to watch with interest as our schools take their
place among the most beautiful and efficient in the nation.
We wish to pay tribute to the 18 loyal members of the joint board. These are men
and women who have given unselfishly of their time and energy in our behalf. They are
indeed an inspiration to us all.
We would also express our appreciation to our administrators, Dr. Harry Faulk,
Mr. Charles Storer, Mr. Lewis Warren, and Mr. Gordon Nevin whose countless problems
we can never really understand, but upon whose unfailing guidance we can always count.

Out of the carefree lazy days of summer we are
catapulted into fall by the approach of Labor Day and
the opening of school. Fall has many subtle and some
not so subtle ways of making itself known: nature's
gradual costume change from multishaded green silk
to rustling taffeta in brown, rust, and goldg the tangy
pungent smell of smoke spiraling skyward from burn-
ing piles of carefully raked leavesg little children
proudly carrying newly acquired schoolbooksg crowds
of teenagers noisily supporting their favorite football
teamg the between-halves rush for steaming hot dogs
and frosty bottles of cokeg gayly uniformed bands
proudly strutting their way through intricate ma-
neuvers on the gridirong the sharp yelps of dogs free
at last to follow their master in search of gameg the
acrid odor of moth balls as the first really nippy day
brings out last winterls woolensg fat turkeys preening
themselves for the last time before Thanksgivingg the
tempting aroma of spicy pumpkin and mincemeat
piesg the peal of Church bells calling all to come on
Thanksgiving morning and spend a brief hour giving
thanks to God, the creator and dispenser of all good
things of this and every season.
"Their purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every bourg
The bud may bare a lzilfer tasle,
But sweet will be the flower."
September 5-the long awaited day had finally arrived and with it 162 new students of Elizabeth
High School. There were the usual problems of locating home rooms, copying schedules, and finally of
searching madly for class room numbers. Of course, a few freshies were lost, but with a little help from
upper classmen, everyone eventually became oriented.
Class activities were a little slow getting started, but the freshmen were successful selling refreshments
at n football game, and they later held ll fine spring dance.
And so, under the able leadership of President Dale Weigel, Vice-President Marybelle Pierce, Secretary
Gayle Holliday, and Treasurer Sondra Krasheski, the class of 1956 has become an integral part of our school.

Anytime during the winter months, you will see groups of students gathered in the halls of Ii. H. S.
talking. Nine times out of ten you will find that they are just reporters of the Warrior staff gathering
news for the next edition. They will be finding out such things :is song requests, class news, and
interesting personalities to write about. And also, just Ll few days before the deadline, you will see our
Warrior editor, D. Morris, spending all her time in study halls hurrying to finish her editorial to turn
in to Mr. Parry, who sponsors the group.
When fall arrived, those who listened closely to the rustling of leaves as they were stirred by shuffling saddle
shoes and moceasins could hear our 135 sophomores as they traveled up and down the streets and lanes in and
around Elizabeth-doing what? Selling delicious salt-water taffy, of course. At only S0c a box who could
refuse? When they weren't selling taffy, they were taking a hop-skip-and a jump to the new athletic field where
they sold refreshments to a hungry, thirsty football crowd.
Next on the schedule of these busy workers was a very successful bake sale for which they busily turned out
bread, cakes, cookies, and candies which shoppers were eager to buy.
As you can sec, our sophomores are really super-salesmen, especially when they are helping those dimes and
dollars to add up in that prom-piggy bank that they are feeding and fattening up so conscientiously.
However, there are those cold, rainy, dreary fall days when our eager workers can do nothing but stare out
between the rain drops and dream of their beautiful, gay "Hawaiian Cruise" to be held in February.
just as they are busily watching the last leaf of fall do a hula dance across the window pane, their sponsor,
Mrs. Jenkins, gently reminds them that there is also a promenade to plan for before they step across into the

As the rust and gold of fall are replaced by winter's
wardrobe of black and white, the somber landscape is
brightened by: multicolored Christmas lights and
garishly painted advertisements urging shoppers to
spend their money earlyg the sound of muffled shouts
rising from a crowded gym as a basketball is dribbled
down the floor and swishes triumphantly through the
basketg sparkling diamonds which cover the whole
world the morning after a snow stormg bright flashes
of color as skaters skim happily over a safely-frozen
pondg joyful laughter of little children marveling
over the toys left by their Christmas Eve visitorg the
haunting strains of "White Christmas" coming from
the radiog the bells and horns of New Years Eveg
steaming cups of creamy hot cocoa served before an
open blaze after a hard afternoon of sleddingg big and
little boys and girls looking shyly at each other as
Valentine boxes are opened and their contents de-
liveredg a good patriotic feeling which arises from
programs which celebrate the birthdays of Washing-
ton and Lincoln and reaffirm our belief that we do
live in a nation under God which must not perish
from the earth.

XVinter is an exciting time bringing gay parties, sled riding, and the thrilling basketball games enjoyed by our
juniors. just to be certain that winter was ushered in "formally" the juniors sponsored the November Dance and
called it "Con Capers." What 601111, they have been thinking of? Bill Willianis' Orchestra supplied the dance
music for this Atliair a la Alcatraz, and the floorshow skit was "A Model Prison," a very excellent drama prepared
by the convi- juniors, we mean. Two of the "lifers"-Fran Vidil and Sammy De Rosa entertained the prison
visitors, many of whom were hauled up before the Kangaroo Court. The Court,s most notable arrest was Mr. Nevin!
He was hned 25C for being tardy.
Later in the winter after the shadow of horizontal stripes had passed from their eyes, the juniors turned their
attention to their class pins which were ordered in january just before semester exams reared their ugly heads.
As they sat in study halls and Watched the snow pile up on the window sills and saw an occasional bird in and
out among the flakes, all of these daydreaming juniors were thinking of just one thing-the PROM, the
biggest and best one ever to be held by old E. H. S. The girls were planning the most glamorous type of gown
to buy and just how to get the right boy to pop the right question at the right time. The boys were Hguring a
budget that would include a corsage--a new suit-and after-prom expenses. Both boys and girls were trying to
agree on who would make the most beautiful queen to succeed the lovely Queen Delores.
The longer they dreamed, the nearer spring came, and as they sank into unconsciousness they could hear the
duleet strains of Tommy Carlyn's band as they danced romantically-in Paris-in April. "Hey! What was
that! Oh, O. K. Miss Rubino, we're going to start rolling that crepe paper right away."

Along with thc caroling comes the annual Christmas assembly. This year a play entitled, "Children of the Inn" was e
nacted by the
Language Club. It concerned a small crippled girl who learned to walk again through the miracle of the Star of Bethlehem. She led
many disbelicvers, even her own father, to see that there really is a God.
The Language Club is active in many ways: The group meets every month under the sponsorship of Mrs. Gibbs. These meetings are
conducted alternately by the Latin and French students. After short business sessions, members are entertained by varying programs
including interesting myths and stories, playlets and discussions. Members gain a greater understanding of the culture and language of

Tri-Hi-Y members are always active, but this year especially
so as they accepted for a service project the sending of gifts to
the Pittsburgh Home for Babies. Five large cartons of toys and
clothing were shipped between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The
W'inter W'onderland Dance, Mothers Tea, and Freshman Reception
rounded OL!! their winter program. The girls fry in every way to
live up to the purpose of Tri-Hi-Y: "To create, maintain, and
extend throughout school and community high standards of
Christian character." Miss Scott is their sponsor.

Dancing in a winter wonderland! What, no trouble today, Zeke?
When winter comes, what do you think of? Snow, sled
riding, skiing, heavy coats and mittens, or the highlight of the
season, Christmas and the New Year? All these things were in
the minds of the members of the Hi-Y as they helped with the
Christmas dance which they share with the Tri-I-Ii-Y and which
had the enchanting theme of "Winter Wonderland." Throughout
the year, though, the boys never cease guarding our halls and
lockers. Mr. Furno sponsors this group.

Every year as spring blows in, nature begins
another gradual costume change from somber black
and white winter tweeds to dainty pink and white
organdy blossoms and crisp green shoots. We become
keenly aware of the awakening earth about us and of
myriad other signs of spring: young couples walking
dreamily hand-in-hand through sweet April showersg
the sharp crack of the bat as a gravel-voiced umpire
shouts, "Play ball!"g the magic of prom night which
turns teenagers into young sophisticatcs and trans-
forms school gyms into beautiful ballroomsg a senior
play performance exciting as any Broadway First
Nightg the thrilling chords of "Come Thou Almighty
King" and "Pomp and Circumstancen issuing from
the auditorium as sober seniors, dignified in their
academic robes, march solemnly through Baccalau-
reate and Commencementg the glorious dawning of a
bright new world fulfilling the eternal Easter promiseg
the sadness and clouds of a Good Friday followed by
the never failing exultation of an Easter Sunrise Serv-
ice which proclaims again the triumphant news,
"Christ the Lord is Risen Today."

When spring comes, can the long-awaited G. A. A. dance be far behind? Of course
notg because almost every high school girl is fully prepared with a new dress, and a crisp
Carnation boutonniere for her date. This dance is different from any other, in that the
girls ask the boys. This gala affair that the G. A. A. sponsors ends a winter of hard
and serious basketball playing.
Twice every week the girls entertain students during lunch hour by dividing into
teams and playing a hotly contested game of ball.
G. A. A. president Phyllis Bernadowski instructs vice-president Alice
Geplurt in the finer points of holding a basketball as juan Monturo,
athletic manager, and Betty Cliuiis, secretary, look on. Perehed
nearby ready to offer advice are representatives Barbara Cliomas,
Minnie Gephart, and Carol Smart. Treasurer Janice Sterling grins
Looking for someone?
"Thr muxic' in my bear! I bore,

The Spring with its fresh greenness sprouting everywhere, its blossoms blooming over all, and its promise of new
and better things to come, has begun to touch Elizabeth High. That "Promise of new and better things to come"
seems to be a pretty good motto not only for spring but also for our newest organization, the Junior Thespians. Our
junior dramatists are being prepared for their Senior Thcspian work, thus making the statement of better things to
come really true. While they're at it, however, they intend to do their best and are starting off very well with
Miss Helen Jaskol for a sponsor and a splendid play to enact. Albert Biddle holds the ofhce of president of the club,
and is assisted by Lou Elesie, vice-presidentg JoAnn Charles, secretaryg and Harvey McKay, treasurer. The play cast
hopes to present their work before a number of the town's groups in addition to the high school students. Here's
hoping future springs will see the Junior Thespians as successful as they are this, their first spring at E. H. S.
The play's the thing.

Of the many plays presented in thc spring by Senior Thcspians, perhaps the most successful .md
funniest, was the one produced by the seniors of the class of ISZ. The play, "The Inner Willy." is a
three .ict comedy telling how Wdlloughby Adams, a bnshful boy sheltered by his three aunts, is goadcd
into being n man by his inner self.

One of the main events on the program for National Education Week, was the play produced by the
Senior Thespians. The play, "The Red Lamp," is a comedy telling how each member of the family had his own
signal for the lamp, and the complications that arose when each tried to use it.

As we tlanced to the enchanting music of Baron Iilliot's Orchestra, we look hack on
the preceding weeks with amuseinent. W'e were sure that the tleeorations woultln't he
eompletetl or that they woultln't he put up on time. Hut the gala evening finally ai'rix'etl
and all went well.
Highlighting the evening was the eoronation. As the lights were tlinimetl, the
audience became speechless. Then we heartl the sentimental strains of "Stairway to the
Stars." All eyes turned to the hack of the room as the retiring eourt antl queen, lloseann
Kettering, walked tlown the aisle.
Xlfhile the melotly was still being played, the new court came into view, followed hy
queen Delores Sutter. They slowly antl majestieally made their way toward the throne
v, here the Coronation ceremony was performed.

Seeing the blossoming trees and budding flowers of spring arouses the interest and
enthusiasm of the Science Club members and Mr. McNish, their sponsor, ns they start on
their way to Phipp's Conservatory for their annual spring tour. Their ofhcers arc:
Anthony DiBattist:1, presidentg George Ohusek, vice-presidentg Lois Muslims, secretnryg
and Albert Biddle, treasurer.

The Senior Class officers look serious as with their class sponsor, Mrs. Keeler, they check over
lists of their class members and records of past achievements. President Earl Tanner makes
notations concerning possible futures of various members of the Class of '53, Vice-President
Ronald Gahagen reads over accounts of their many activities since they entered high school as
"green" freshmen in the fall of 1949.
Secretary James Morrison wonders whatever happened to those who dropped out of the
class and Treasurer Arthur Bartrug wonders how many will return for their fifth anniversary
As time for the senior play, senior banquet, Baccalaureate, and Commencement slowly, but
surely rolls around, almost all seniors are surprised to find that the wonderful feeling of relief
which they have been anticipating for so long is accompanied by a strange new feeling-almost of
sadness and regret at leaving iamiliar places and friends who have grown to mean so much
through the years.
A predominating thought in many minds quite naturally is, "What next?" The answer to
this query may vary from Military service, to college, to marriage, but everyone has a good feeling
of accomplishment and the knowledge that whatever the future may hold, they have been wise
in completing this important step in their education.
They know, too, that this is just a step ahead-certainly not the end of anything. They find
it fitting that they should graduate in the spring when all real beginnings are made.
