For some, it has been the most important year in their school career because it is the last one. Forfothers, it has just been a step in the long progress of educa- tion. Ever since September 7, 19545, when 305 alert youngsters ran into Harding High, until June 6, 1955 When these 305 bade farewell to the sen- iors, the school has been busy shaping them into students. However, it is the students who have made our school what it is. From the view-point of a student, the year has been busy. The Allens and Jack Rank,s Shakespearean readings were a few of our assemblies. Stu- dent-participation programs have beenrmore common this year. The Thanks- The Football Dance Court which was elected by a vote of the student body. Seated: Queen Sally Nagy and King Richard Katona. Standing: Carole Datfner, Nettie Nenno, Robert Potti, and David G. Hilston, attendants. A favorite pastime, lounging in the halls. N giving, Christmas, and Easter assemblies were all performed by students Sports have always been in the tradition of Harding. The cold days of cheering our football team, the pride in the basketball team, and our inter- est in track and baseball will always be remembered. This was the year that the new and modern gymnasium, industrial arts rooms, and band rooms were completed. The school always enjoys itself at the school dances. The football dance, which is becoming traditional with the election of a king, queen, and attendants, and the gay spring dance are given each year. This year two more informal dances were given, the '6Sock-Hopi' and the "Stag-Drag". The prom is one of the highspots for those who are old enough to attend, and for those who aren't, it certainly is something to look forward to. There are other things that are important. Studies are one. Fairport students should beiproud of the school's reputation for high academic standards. Class officers are electedg class discussions are held. These are steps in building citizenship. The clubs and musical organizations encourage co-operation and fair play. The seniors will soon leave this school life, some happy and some sad, but they all will carry a part of the school with them. The school will lose something, too. Soon these memories may grow dim, but with your Harbor Light, they will live for years. The growth of yearbooks has resulted from a real need. Long ago students assembled "memory books", which were scrapbooks com- posed of programs, snapshots, and other incidentals which the student wished to remember. Out of these "memory booksl' grew the present-day annuals. The Harbor Light staff has compiled lists, taken photographs, drawn pictures, and written stories to give the students of Harding High School their memory book. Through our pages We will try to construct a class, student body, faculty, and high school. We hope our "memory book" will be a true and lasting picture of Harding High School, 1954-1955.

They spend their study halls in the library. There is ample room in the study hall, and the reading room provides adequately for students who wish to ask each Other questions or study together. The library provides them with a place to study and an excellent reference collection. Newspapers, magazines, and fiction is provided for those who can use a "free reading" period. The librarians help stu- dents choose booksto make book reports and help them find information they need from reference books. Often themes or papers that have to be typed are completed on the library typewriter. High school girls are used as desk assistants. In the evenings, the library becomes one of the places students can feel at home. Mrs. Helen Casey Mrs. Thelma- Hyduke Librarian Library Assistant Seventeen i 1 BROVVN MEMOIRIAL BUILDING The new Brown Memorial Building was dedicated this winter, and Fairport is now proud to boast of having one of the finest and newest gym- nasiums in Northeastern Ohio. ' The first basketball game played in the gym was against Harvey High School on December 10, 1954, and attending the game, was the largest crowd Fairport has ever had at a sports event-an estimated 1,000 fans. David "Butch" Hilston was the first player to score a basket in the first official varsity basketball tilt. The Skippers went on to make it a fitting dedication by downing the Harvey Red Raiders. An important feature of the new gymnasium is a sliding partition which can be drawn across the actual playing floor and two separate gym classes can be conducted at the same time, one for boys and the other for girls. The seating capacity of the whole gym is estimated at 1,200. Besides the gym there are an industrial arts room, a band practice room, individual practice rooms, training rooms, and home and visitor,s shower and locker rooms. . Yes, Fairport has every right to be proud of such a building! i.. Eighteen 735 LQ! P25 Q Q49 EHS SPORTS AND MUSIC . . . Nine Left to right, first row: David M.

Twenty The Fairport Skippers again Wound up with a better than expected season. In fact, Coaches Matt lvary and George Daly were well satisfied with the inexperienced team. The team could boast a five Win, three loss record, which is not too bad considering the caliber of the opponents. Fairport played eight class A schools, some with large enrollments. The Skippers placed only third in the North- eastern Conference with a 2-2 record, but with the players returning next year, the outlook is much brighter than it was last September. Robert Jarboe fNo. 76J is leading in- terference for fullback Robert Potti fwith ballj as Potti charges for a sizable gain against the Riverside Beavers. Rich Katona KNO. 841 goes for a short gain Richard Katona, three-year foot-ball letter-man but- is encircled by four Geneva players and is and the play-caller of the football team, receives SUODPCG- t-he V.F.XV. Most Valuable Player Award. Fairport 6-Mentor 264' Fairport's only score was by Darryl Mackey on a left end run. The Cardinals proved too much for the Skippers to let them score any- more. Mentor boasts the league title for the second year in a row, but the Skippers will be aiming for it next year. Fairport 38 - Geneva 123 The entire Skipper line and backfield played excellent ball to enable the local eleven to cop their first season's N,E.C. victory. Fairport 34--Ashtabula Harbor 14 "Butch" Hilston highlighted the game by one of the season's longest runs, 90 yards after he plucked a handoff from the Harbor quarterback. Dick Eckert and Jim Cardina were the defensive stars. Fairport 0 - Painesville 2555 Everything seemed to go wrong-for the Skip- pers, that is. It rained all day and the field was drenched and soggy, hindering a running attack and preventing any passing. Harvey played ex- cellent football to sink the Skippers as Landfield ran wild. Fairport 12- Conneaut 6 Bouncing back from their defeat from Paines- ville, the local Harding eleven came back with an impressive victory over Conneaut, the favored team by 4 T.D.'s. Albin Ulle scored the first T.D. on a beautiful 56-yard run and Ken Urban took a pass from Bob Potti and raced 28 yards for the final tally. Fairport 15 - XVickliffc 6 Too many injuries prevented the team from rolling up a larger score, but the outcome wasn't bad at all. "Bull" Mackey scored the first touch- down and Potti threw the pigskin to Urban for the second score. Katona booted the extra point. Fairport 26 - Riverside 095 The Skippers had a big night against River- side with everybody getting a chance to show their stuff. The second team played most of the second half. Scores were made by Hilston, Urban, Potti, and Mackey. Fairport 7 -St. Joseplfs 20 The local schoolboys played on even terms with the boys from the big city for the first three quarters, but in the final quarter St. Joe's su- perior manpower made the difference. at Indicates N. E. C. games Seated: Bob Ulle and Don Rinyo, managers. Standing: Head Coach Matt lvary and Assistant Coach George Daly. Twenty-one Richard Katona, 165 lb. senior-All league quarterback and one of the finest ball players around is what they say about Rich. A triple threat back, Rich will be the hardest man to replace next year. ' Quarterback Richard Katona puts his head down and plows over the goal line for a T.D. before being brought down. James Cardina, 160 lb. senior- "Bummy" starred on offense and really proved that he could handle that center spot when an accurate pass from center meant the difference between victory and defeat. Richard Willhoite, 175 lb. senior - t'Kilroy" really was a mean guard when he was in the game. Persistent injuries benched him for nearly half the season. He will be sorely missed next year. Richard Katila, 155 lb. junior-A hard hitting guard was "Princie", who paved the way for many a. T.D. and also prevented a number of opponents from scoring. Albin Ulle, 160 lb. sophomore-Albin was one of the two fleet-footed halfbacks that the Skippers sported this year until a knee injury benched him after the Conneaut victory. Albin cracked that game wide open with a startling 55 yard run to pay dirt. Twenty-two Steve Ruszkai, 175 lb. senior-Steve, the scholar of the squad, tackled the op- ponents with as much zest as he tackled the books. Robert Potti, 180 lb. junior-This boy could plow right through the defensive line for some good gains when he wanted to. Bob was an asset at the fullback po- sition and will return again next year. Thomas Remaley, 160 lb. junior- 'tC0ach" starred on defense and was pretty hard to move from his tackle po- sition. This boy has one more year to continue his fine work. Richard Orris, 145 lb. sophomore - Ritchie wasn't too big, but he could really get up and block and plug up the line. This rough and tough guard has two more seasons of action in store for him. -Butch was voted unanimous all-league David "Butch" Hilston, 190 lb. senior end for his terrific defensive work this season. Butch has aided the team for the past three years and has been voted all-league twice. Steve Ruszkai and James Cardinal, two football letter- lnen who were not present for another picture. are shown here at their usual positions. David "Whitey" Hilston, 155 lb. sen- ior-Whitey also held down the tackle spot and showed himself to be mean at all times. Richard Eckert, 210 lb. junior - "Crunchy" besides adding all the humor to the team was a Tarzanic two-way tackle. He proved his worth in many games and will also return next season. Darryl Mackey, 165 lb. junior - "Bull" rounds out the team of running backs and is a constant threat on of- fense. One more year is also left for him. Gary Brainard, 140 lb. sophomore- Another fleet-footed halfback that has a story similar to Ulle's. He also had a knee injury from the Conneaut game. Fairport expects great things from this Speedster. John Knotts, 190 lb. senior-"Bucky" with his glue fingers showed that he could hold his own at the end spot. He could really hold on to those passes. Kenneth Urban, 155 lb. junior-Ken could play either end or halfback and he proved that he could handle both po- sitions well. Ken will return next year and we hope he sees a lot of action. John Resetiar, 160 lb. senior-An end who was at his best in the Geneva game, Jack proved that extra effort pays off in the long run-72 yards long. Robert Jarboe, 165 lb. freshman - Being a freshman didn't hinder this boy from showing his stuff. He could carry the ball and block and tackle like a veteran. Many years of play are left for him yet and we know he'll make good.

Fifty-three SENIOR CLASS PLAY OF '55 Miss West, the director of the play, chose a sprightly and gay comedy, "Our Hearts Were Young and Gayn. This delightful and thoroughly laugh- able play was dramatized by Jean Kerr from the book by Cornelia Otis Skinner and Emily Kimbrough. Cornelia and Eniily, two 19 year-old girls, are caught in a web of ex- citement as they depart to Paris on a large, luxurious ocean liner. They pester and perplex the crew. Cornelia, who loves to express herself dramatic- ally, and Emily, a scatterbrain, involve their newly-made friends in a few of their difficulties. Soon, however, they do arrive in Paris only to be greeted with exploding gas meters and a selfish and mercenary dramatic instructor. All the characters romp through the play with such gaiety and skill it just proves that their hearts really were young and gay! Steward .... Mrs. Skinner .....,. Cornelia Otis Skinner . . . . , .

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY To become a member of the National Honor Society is the highest honor which can be bestowed upon a member of the senior class. The members are chosen on four counts-scholarship, leadership, character, and service. Members must be in the upper third of the class scholastically and only fifteen percent of the graduating class is chosen. Grades are compiled on the basis of seven semesters of school, except for mid-years who have already com- pleted eight semesters. Seniors fulfilling requirements were listed, and the faculty members voted for six, which was this yearls quota. The program was an impressive ceremony this year and very different from those of the past. The faculty members were robed, and as the students were chosen, they, too, were given a robe. The initiation service which followed was one of the most dignified and inspiring programs ever seen here. . ' A Y O ' HONOR -p socnfv l The Emblem of the Society H The emblem is the keystone and flaming : 7 ll 5 torch. As the keystone is used for stability, ' so the structure of our education is held firm and true by the virtues represented in this symbol. The flaming torch .is symbolical i of the searching light of truth. Character, 3 scholarship, leadership, and service are rep- ' resented by the letters C, S, L, and S. Sixty- eight CAN YOU IMAGINE!
