eron County Schools tor 35 years, for his excellent con-
tributions to our schools and civic functions, we, the Class
of 1946, dedicate our yearbook.
The Raider - 4
Is for Energy, which we all claim
Is an essential point on the road to fame.
Is for Mastery over our foes,
Which is quite favorable, as everyone knows.
Is for Progress, the goal we all seek
But know can't be reached in a day or a week.
Is for the Opportunity which we possess,
To start our life's journey on the road to success.
ls for Romances tried and true,
Of which our school has quite a few.
Is for Integrity the Juniors claim
They as seniors hope to retain.
Is for Unity together it binds us,
United Iet's hope the years will still find us.
Is for Memories, of class and of fun
Of parties and yearbooks and lessons well done?
ls for Honors, to us they are due
For the inspirations we have given to you.
Is for Intelligence and Interest, too,
Which the departing Seniors leave to the new.
Is for Glory, we're sure our team's name
Will be enshrined in the sport hall of fame.
Is our High School it's praises we'II sing
To its fond memories, forever we'lI cling.

truly standing at the crossroad of life. 'A C men ment is a -beginning and .an

Four years ago we entered E. S.I ea r Fr hmen, thinking we "knew
all the answers" until some of as welieh z the pperlclassmlen and dde
to realize what it meant to be "Fr'.shle" 'I 'sele ed Red andliGray a our

The days of our Sophomore yearlwlere ehll fbusyllones. We selected our
class rings, sponsored a profitqble r Iler-sk tihg arty, and a gay Valentine
dance. A happy-go-lucky picnic was fittinglclim y to the year's work and fu'n.
The excitement of our Junior year lpeganlwith' the arrival of our class rings.
Soon after electing officers, we had pur first lulancgp' another on our listsof suc-
cessful accomplishments. We were hot aware w ,lllgqdso many talented Thes-
pians until our play "Spring Fever" as preserltedif 'lfllot vqas the year, loo, that
we lost Tompkins, Kinsler, DiBello, Judd, Cbsyluni, and Herrick :Ito Uncle
Sam's Armed Forces. In May came the eagbrl awdltecl Jurlibr Prom Which was
a "Prom of all Proms" and a fitfing farewel, tal thelldeparting seniors whose
places we were soon to take. fl , I, .I
The busy days of our Iastfyear at Et IS. hdll httany happy memories for
us. As seniors we started the 'social ball rolling b pnsoring the Sadie Hawkins
Shindig. For this dance the usual proceIdlJ e wel r v rsed and the girls escorted
the fellows. Staff membersfwere chosep o th w y on the 1946 Raider would
be begun at once. The yvholehearted- c qlp ati I of the entire class made it
possible for the Editor and assistants toimak this e best Raider.
In a moment noyv I will receive rlty diploma. It will be more than iust a
diploma that will be' handed to me-git will be a promise of a bright future, a
future I know will be bright because of the fine preparation I have received. So
when I am handed my diploma dnd I murmur, "thank you", what I really mean
is-thanks Emporium High, for the happy memories of the past and confidence
in the future that you have given me, I' am truly grateful.

As our class play the Class of '46, then Juniors, chose a rip-roaring comedy,
"Spring Fever," which was presented on the evenings of March 7 and 8, 1945,
to capacity audiences. While "Spring Fever" is mainly concerned with the struggle
of 'l7-year old Jackie Howard to get the money to finance his ingenius invention,
numerous other incidents weave in and out of the plot-young Peggy Howard's
hair tonic which was SUPPOSED to make the hair grow, and didn't, Jackie's love
affair with the town beauty, and a maiden aunt's "hooking" of the high school
The cast was as follows:
Jackie Howard, who has "Spring Fever" all the year 'round Jim Tompkins
Price, his married brother
Ray Butler, his chum
Mr. Knight, an athletic coach
Jackie's kid sister
, their mother
Barnes, her sister
Howard, Price's wife
Billington, Jackie's weakness .

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
The class of '47 entered E. H. S. eager and green. Early in our Freshman
year, red and blue were chosen as the class colors. The highlights of the year
were an enioyable skating party, the promotion exercises, and a gala picnic at
The tirst event of the Sophomore year was the Sophomore Hop. After the
selection of our class rings, the girls organized a basketball team. One of the
outstanding features of this year was the adoption of the silver fish as our mascot.
As Juniors we entered E. H. S. with ambition. As evidence, a hot dog
stand was erected by members ofthe class to earn money. The idea was a huge
success. Following the example of the class of '46, our class put on a play,
"Great Caesar's Ghost," which will remain in the class log book for many years
to come. Discussions tor the Junior Prom are underway and we will justify our-
selves by serving nothing but the best for our departing Seniors. We will attempt
to have our annual departing picnic and prepare for the last year with E. H. S.

FRESHMEN CLASS HISTORY
Full of happy anticipation of a bright future, the Freshman Class, number-
ing l09, entered Emporium High in September 1945. Just as the class of 1946
is the first in many years to graduate in a world of peace, so are we the first to
begin our high school careers in a normal atmostphere.
After a few weeks of getting acquainted, we held our first class meeting
and elected an all male executive board. We chose as our class colors, maroon
and gray, our motto, "Knowledge is better than wealth", and our flower, the
American Beauty Rose.
With this good beginning, we feel sure that with a few more years and a
little more experience we shall be able to take over the important position of

This year, under the leadership of Mr. Graft, who recently returned from
service in the Navy, the band once more has ci place of importance in both cur-
ricular and extra-curricular work. Thanks to the rearrangement of the class
periods, this musical organization has a full seventy minute period for rehearsal.
This, plus the director's enthusiasm, helped to bring about a great improvement
in a very short time. With the addition of new members the band now numbers
The marching band played for all home football games and also those held
at Kane and St. Marys, Its appearance at pep meetings was a boost to the school
spirit, just as its leading of the Halloween parade gave a boost to the town.
The ranks of the band received with natural enthusiasm the news that eight of
their number were selected for the district meet to be held in April at Philipsburg.
New uniforms were procured this year, as a result of the tireless ettorts of
the Music Booster Club and the band members themselves. The military-style
uniforms have red trousers and a red jacket with a high collar and white lapel.
The pompom hat'with the shako on it adds a dignity to the uniform that should
make our band fully as exciting to view as it to hear.

Although the school orchestra meets but twice o week, it has increased in
membership, playing ability, and appreciation of the fine music which they study.
The student body welcomed an opportunity to hear the orchestra perform
in Assembly early this year, their enthusiastic reception should surely prove to
both the orchestra members and the director, Mr. Graft, how highly the school
regards their work. We are all eagerly awaiting the annual Spring Concert
which the band and orchestra will present to the public sometime in April.
The orchestra will always be among the school-day memories of the Class
of '46, for its strains ushered them into their years of Senior High School when
they filed in for Promotion Night. Now the notes of the orchestra will ring
in the ears of the Seniors-or rather, graduates,-as they leave the stage and
depart from Emporium High School.

Hubba! Hubba! Hubba! The flash of feminine glamour which precedes
our dashing Emporium Band, is none other than our corps of petite, scintillating,
and high-stepping maiorettes and color-guards. Their dexterity at twirling their
flashing batons and carrying their colors high is the envy of the many students.
As they strut gracefully down the street, they are one of the outstanding attrac-
tions of our famed high school band.

The largest club in the high school is the Choral Club, consisting of forty-
eight members, under the sponsorship of Miss Gladys Cromer. Throughout the
year 1945-46, it was very active in both civic and school afifairs. In December
a Christmas pageant, "Wondrous Story," was presented and was well received
by a large audience.
This year, several of our singers were chosen to participate in the district
chorus meeting. Those who are now Senior members of the Choral Club will
remember for a long time the excitement of tryouts and applications for the
choral meetings and, toward the end of a busy year, the pride with which they
received their lavaliers, symbols of faithful attendance and participation in the
projects of this group.

Whenever any musical activities are planned by members of the high school

services held for the graduating seniors, the Triple Trio has a special part in the
singing program. lt is a great honor to be chosen as a member of this group,

When you see, on Thursday afternoons, a little knot of High School students
all trying to look over the shoulder of someone who is engrossed in a copy of
the local paper, you may be sure they are reading the latest Hi-Herald. The
Press Club is the organization that each week fills a corner of the "Press Inde-
pendent" with school doings, from write-ups on games and other activities to
subtle comments on the latest romances.
The Press Club's success is due to its hard-working officers and to the"super-
snooping" of its reporters. So, thanks to the Press Club, words often heard
around the school are, "l know that's so because I read it in the Hi-Herald."

STUDENT SAFETY COUNCIL
This year a new type of student training was inaugurated with the forma-
tion of the Student Safety Council, the purpose of which is to make the student
body conscious of the importance of safety in the home and at school.
This organization strives to continue developing safe attitudes, habits and
skills begun in the elementary and junior high schools and to develop attitudes,
habits and skills essential to efficient and safe participation in all phases of school
activities, particularly in athletics, industrial arts, and the laboratory. The offi-
cers for this year are:
President Norman Zwald
Vice President . . . Bernard Sassman
Secretary Milton Ford
Treasurer Richard LaBrozzi
The council is sub-divided into several departments, namely the Publicity,
Program, Accident Reporting, Correspondence, Safety Patrol, Inspection, Shop
Safety Engineers, Bus Patrol, Home Safety Representatives, and Athletic Safety.
Although the council is newly formed this year, the results of the students
efforts are very noticeable, particularly in the crossing of streets. We are sure
that with the present student attitude the efforts of the Safety Council will be
meaningful and worth-while in the years to come.

The Emporium High School Football team, although having
lost several games, emerged from the current season with the
satisfaction of knowing that they had played good, clean, hard,
football. Coaches Bricker and Miller, with the unpleasant
thought of having one of the toughest schedules ever encoun-
tered, worked hard to get the boys in condition for the first game.
Rich Labrozzi and Mont Close, co-captains, along with Ed Horn-
ing, Don Davison, "Becky" Zwald, and Harvey Bowley formed
the senior nucleus of the team. Other members who completed
the line-up of the Red Raiders are: Darles Kreakie, Harvey
Gribble, Bill Averill, Jim Parks, and Bob Parks.

RED RAIDERS GET LATE START
The Red Raiders opened their season by playing a strong
Lock Haven eleven. Lock Haven scored two quick touchdowns
in the opening minutes of the game to build up a I4-0 mar-
gin. The Raiders then proceeded to play the Bobcats on even
terms the remainder of the game. Lock Haven came out
ahead with a score of 20-6. Emporium's lone touchdown was
scored on a pass from Rich LaBroui to Darles Kreakie.
The following week the Raiders iourneyed to South Wil-
liamsport to play a highly favored South Williamsport eleven.
Neither team scored in the first half, thus leaving no one a
margin at half time. ln the third quarter South scored a
touchdown and extra point, but this did not hinder the Raiders.
In the same quarter Emporium came right back to score a
touchdown and added the extra point to tie the game. It
looked as though Emporium would pull an upset by holding
the home team to a tie, but the Mountaineers scored a touch-
down in the final minute of play to eke out a 13-7 victory.
A pass from LaBrozzi to Kreakie was again responsible for the
FIRST WIN OF THE SEASON
Playing at St. Marys, the Raiders racked up their first
win of the season when they pounded out a 6-0 victory. The
Emporium team, led by LaBrozzi and Davison, outplayed the
Dutchmen but it took a pass from LaBroz1i to Kreakie to chalk
up the winning touchdown.
UPSET OF THE SEASON
Port Alleghany upset the dope the following week when
they took the Raiders by a I3-7 score. The Emporium eleven,
led by LaBrozzi, Davison and Harvey Gribble, played the
Gators on even terms, but a touchdown in the third period
by Port topped the local stalwarts. Richie LaBrozzi raced 55
yards for the Emporium tally.
RAIDERS THE BETTER TEAM
Playing a return game with St. Marys, the Raiders added
another game to their win column when they dropped the
Dutchmen for the second time, coming out ahead with a score
of I3-6. Coach Bricker revamped the team for this game,
Mont Close and Bob Parks were moved from the line to the
backfield, while Jim Park's position was changed from full-
back to end. Bill Averill was promoted to the Varsity tackle
position. These changes helped the Raiders as they were then
a much improved team. After 0 scoreless first half, the Red-
clad Emporium team came back strong in the third period to
chalk up two touchdowns. Labrozzi scored the first six points
and tossed a touchdown pass to Bob Parks for the second.
RAIDERS PLAY BALL
Against a strong Jersey Shore team the Raiders turned
in the best game of the season. Emporium was a decided
underdog, but led by LaBrozzi, Close, Bowley, Parks, and
Davison, the team outplayed the favored home team although
they had to settle for a 6-6 tie. Jersey Shore scored a touch-
down in the opening minutes of the game on a blocked kick.
They threatened to score several times in the first half but
met heavy opposition from the Raiders. The second half the
Red team came back strong to mark up the tying touchdown.
With the forward wall opening some big holes in the Jersey
Shore line, and LaBrozzi, Bob Parks and Close doing some
fancy running, our team drove 68 yards for its touchdown,
which was scored by Rich LaBroz1i.
Curwensville was next on the schedule and was the only
team really to outplay the Raiders. They were the first team
that we failed to score against, and they were victors over
us with a score of 31-0. Curwensville was the best team the
Raiders faced all season and though they tried hard, they
failed to hold the victors in check.
WITH A FEW BREAKS
Facing Johnsonburg our team was up against another
heavy favorite. The Johnies scored in the second quarter and
also made the extra point. Then trailing 7-0, the Raiders mid-
way in the third period put on a drive that reached Johnson-
burg's 2-yard line, but they put up a strong defense and held.
In the last period Johnsonburg scored its second touchdown.
Although they beat us I4-0 our team deserved a better fate,
and the Big Reds outplayed the winning team.
THE END OF OUR SEASON
Ringing down the curtain, the Raiders iourneyed to Kane
for the final game of their schedule. It was a scoreless tie.
The game was played under very poor weather conditions.
The field was a sea of mud, and snow fell during the entire
game. LaBrozzi, Park, Zwald, Close, Horning, Davison and
Bowley all finished their high-school football careers in great
style, each played a great game. Emporium held the upper
hand all during the game, outgaining their foe 148 yards to
38 yards, but couldn't shove over for a touchdown.

The Red Raiders Basketball squad of "46," composed chiefly of Sophomores
and Seniors completed a successful season with a record of 8 victories and 7 set-
backs. The team was captained by Norman Zwald, senior, one of the guards,
and backed by such Sophomore stalwarts as Darles Kreakie, guard, John Larson,
center, Sammy I-apore and Bee Tompkins, forwards and Jimmy Donovan, Frank
Blumle and Bud Orr, who also figured greatly in our victories. Having seen
the team in action this year, we believe that they should by all means have an-
other successful season next year.
The Jay Vee's, too, had a splendid record of 10 wins and 4 losses, which is
also encouraging, for these boys are the ones that will be our Varsity in years
LOCK HAVEN: Emporium High School opened its basketball
season by playing Lock Haven Catholic on the home court

easy victory, were almost defeated in their second game of
the season. Austin held the Red Raiders to 35 points, while
scoring 29 points themselves.

game of the season. With the score tied at 20, and only 20
seconds to play, a hard fighting "Dutchman" slipped one
through the loop. Final score: St. Marys-22, Emporium-20.
COUDERSPORT: Emporium again took up its winning streak

VARSITY "E" CLUB
Emporium High's Varsity Club is comprised of those who
have earned a school letter by participating in some field of ath-
letics during their four years of studies. Also, to attain member-
ship, candidates must survive the club initiation ordeal and be
recognized for good sportsmanship.
The club's activities for this year include plans for a trip
designed for "sports" interest, and securing Varsity sweaters for
those members leaving their Alma Mater as lettermen.

yells ring out from the cheering ranks of E. H. S., you can always
be sure that our six peppy cheerleaders are down in front, call-
ing encouragement and keeping school spirit right up on top.
With new cheers, motions and members, our cheerleading
