Being forced to do your best will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues which the idle never know. H. S. BOVARD, President. ElevenTwelve W. W. IRWIN Superintendent of SchoolsW. R. ANDERSON High School Principal ThirteenHIGH SCHOOL ORGANIZATION THE COMMERCIAL CURRICULUM The Commercial or Business Course of the Farrell High School is offered to young men and women who have ability and who show a natural inclination toward commercial work or who wish to prepare for a paying job as soon as they finish the course. Because business life is so complex today, it is useless to attempt more than a training in the fundamentals. Careful attention is given to stenography, typewriting, bookkeeping, commercial arithmetic, English and a thorough knowledge of the operation of the adding machine and the comptometer. For those who want a brief business training which will enable them to make a living for a few years or in case of necessity, a two years’ intensive study of shorthand and typewriting is provided. The standards set for this work are high enough to insure good preparation. Bookkeeping in the last two years includes not only practice in keeping books for various types of businesses, but instruction in the elementary theories of accounting. This work is supplemented by a careful study of commercial arithmetic, including rapid calculation. Recognizing the demand of modern business, several comptometers have been added to the equipment. A thorough knowledge of the operation of this time-saving machine is offered to our commercial pupils. These general courses give a good knowledge of the fundamental principles on which all business is operated and thus furnish the pupil with a background of valuable knowledge that it would take years of experience to supply otherwise. While these curricula are truly vocational, they are also cultural to a marked degree and will tend to have a broadening rather than a narrowing influence. The four years study of English, civics and history will result in valuable general training. Most graduates of this curriculum will probably enter clerical positions at once. However, it should be pointed out that the way is onen for higher education in business colleges, and in the business departments of various colleges and universities. Pupils should consider carefully the possibilities of further education beyond the high school and should choose subjects that will make this possible. FourtrvnOUTLINE OF COURSE OF STUDY I he larrell High School offers its students three choices of curricula. General, for those students who are undecided as to their future work and who desire a wide choice of electives. Academic, for those who are preparing for college entrance. Commercial, for students who desire to prepare for secretarial, stenographic, business or clerical work. Each pupil must register in one of the curricula at the beginning of the ninth year. The greatest care should be exercised by the pupils and parents in the selection of a course. This selection should be governed by the pupil’s ability, capacity, interest or choice of a profession. A classified four-year high school requires for graduation the completion of a four-year secondary curriculum covering not fewer than sixteen units. These units are in addition to the general work required of all pupils in health, physical education, art, music, activities and the practical arts.

All the world's a school and all the boys and girls are Merely students. They have their exits and their entrances. Their acts being four stages. The first age is the green and foolish Freshman, Enduring slams and scoffs of upper classmen. And then the innocent and guileless Soph Plodding each day unwillingly to school, Yet beaming with pride, when walking with a Senior. Then the saucy, witty, Junior classman, Full of wise-cracks and modern smart sayings. The last age shifts into the dignified old Senior— Haughty and proud of being in the highest class, The best fruit of the tree of education. And thus each one performs upon the stage, Through four long acts of toil and hard study To finally reach the longed for goal—success. —0. D., ’30.

Still aloft on my endurance flight! To stem my terror of the impenetrable darkness, I thought of the four years of the Senior’s stay at Farrell High. My heart filled with pride at the remembrance of the achievements of my fellow classmates. We admit that we were quite shy and reticent when we first entered Farrell High, but we can safely blame that on the upper classmen. We did not have to wait very long before they practiced a feat new to Freshmen. Amid tears and cries of consternation, we watched them clip the beloved locks of our boys, apparently envious of their brilliant tresses. After this first step from the muddy depths of ignorance, we Freshies settled down and tackled our books with “Vim” and “Vigor.” At the end of the year we presented an operetta which took the place of our graduation exercises. The next year we returned as Sophomores! With no pangs of remorse or compassion, we found pleasure in clipping the hair of the Freshmen, in a spirit of revenge. After the first month of school had elapsed, we gave a successful Hallowe’en party. The rest of the year was spent in good, solid work. After three months of “hectic” life, we returned as Juniors. We displayed our ability in dramatics by presenting our class play, “Hurricane Hal.” We also held a picnic. Last, but not least, came the Junior-Senior Banquet. It was a success! In the autumn of 1930, we returned to school as dignified Seniors. Our first social event was a Wiener Roast. Then came our Senior play, “It Won’t Be Long Now.” Soon we strove hard, soaring to the skies through our difficulties—Ad astra per aspera—in publishing this volume. Once again we shed our mask of seriousness and turned our attention toward the Junior-Senior Banquet. This turned out to be an elaborate affair. Our Commencement came at last! Quite a few tears were shed at this event as it constituted the last high school event of the Class of 1931. As education is no longer confined to infancy and youth, we have resolved to further our education by taking advantage of that gift given us by God—the intelligent passion for excellence—but before realizing this resolution, we bid an affectionate and hearty farewell to that which shall always occupy a place in our hearts—Our Alma Mater.

They fought their battles with that “Do or Die,” To preserve the name of Farrell High. They never weakened when a crisis came. As proved to you by their literary fame. Each time they were confronted by a problem or task, They started right in, no questions did they ask. So brave and noble in truth were they That even in sorrow, they were happy and gay. How can we forget such merry souls Who were always struggling to attain high goals? Let us, Seniors, drink to the Juniors so brave, Their knowledge and service to the school they gave; The Juniors who are awaiting the coming day— Gay Seniors to be, in the fair month of May!

We soon became acquainted with the mechanism of the curricular routine. As the school term drew to an end, we busied ourselves in making plans for our Junior High Commencement Program, which would entitle us to our hard-earned diplomas and give us the privilege of enrolling in Senior High School. As Sophomores, we became more enthusiastic and took part in literary and athletic activities. The first social event of the year was a Senior High Dance. The gym was decorated in an orange and black color scheme. The majority of those attending were masked. We all had an enjoyable time. This was an eventful year which ended all too soon even though we were eager to become Juniors. We are now Juniors and take pride in our recognition as upper classmen. We started this term by electing class officers and by establishing ourselves to our assigned duties. This year we were well represented in both literary and athletic activities, and the participants have done their best to bring great honor to Farrell High. A Senior High Dance was held and all those who attended had a jolly time. I Now we are looking forward to the Junior-Senior banquet, for we hope to have the best one in the history of our school. The gym is to be decorated in colors representing both classes, and with the aid of the beautiful evening gowns which will have been so carefully chosen by the girls, it should make a gorgeous spectacle!

Forty-FourSOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY “Next stop—Farrell High School,’’ cried the pilot of the big tri-motored airplane that was transporting the Freshmen to their place of knowledge. Of course everybody was excited and was craning his neck for a glimpse of the stately building. The big plane rolled to a stop in front of the imposing portals of Farrell High School. Imagine the surprise of the male members of the plane when the Barber Union gave us a royal welcome by shearing our pretty locks. It took about two or three months for us to become accustomed to the taunts and rebukes of the upper classmen, and it took us the rest of the year to get accustomed to the ways of the school, discipline, and last, but not least, the teachers. When commencement time arrived, we received the coveted reward for our faithful labor. We marched into the auditorium where some of us presented a very pleasing program. After the program, we marched into the gymnasium where we received our diplomas. After vacation we returned to our Alma Mater as full-fledged upper classmen. But this time we came in the plane ahead of the Freshmen, for we were on the welcoming committee, armed with clippers. For about a week, we were in our glory chasing the Freshmen for the possession of their golden curls. At last we resumed our old routine, leaving the Freshmen to themselves. Our invitation to the Senior High School Dance in the early fall was our first social function, and it proved to be a success. But now as most of the year is about gone, we are looking forward to the next year, and hoping that we will all be aboard the plane when it takes off for Farrell High School. JOHN NOLAN, Historian.

Forty-NinrFRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY Doubtful, a little frightened, yet with undaunted spirit, we entered the Freshman Class of our Alma Mater, dear old Farrell High. We took off from the landing field with waving banners, flying colors and high hopes. Off! On a four-year journey in the large seaplane, “Education.” Inside, bald heads of the boys seemed to be the latest style. The teachers piloted the airship and we, the pupils, were the passengers. There were many rough weather days; they were traveled successfully through our pilots’ excellent steering. After we had been settled for a couple of months, we could steer the ship and relieve our pilots many times. Some of us grew discouraged and failed, but the majority of us hope to continue this trip next September, achieving more, and with higher hopes of success. The fog is slowly clearing; the great mad waves have calmed and the sea is balmy. See! The sun is shining and things look much brighter for the Freshmen of Farrell High. MINNIE SZABO, Historian.

Imagine then, the honor that was bestowed upon Farrell High School as the first school in Northwestern Pennsylvania to install means whereby nocturnal football might be enjoyed! Many people had visualized a game played long after sundown, but their predictions lacked the actual beauty of our first night game! Football enthusiasts were amazed to learn how far from correct their predictions had been when they witnessed Farrell High’s first exhibition of night football. When the fans beheld the velvety gridiron and then the glaring electric suns, nesting atop stilt-like foundations, they voiced their admiration in an undirected chorus of beautiful “Ohs!” and “Ahs!” Similar admiration was musically interpreted by our band, as it marched and counter-marched across the emerald field. The fans and the band concluded with, “Ours Is the Victory!” Upon leaving the scene of the fray, the crowd marveled silently at the fourteen poles supporting the huge incandescents that transferred the field into a land of “midnight sun,” whilst all the outside world was clasped in the folds of the dark night. Fifty-TwoFOOTBALL SEASON Entering upon a difficult schedule, with a team composed of many inexperienced and a few experienced players, we had very little hope for a successful season. But under the careful direction of our coaches, Mr. Ganaposki and Mr. Wagner, a team of championship calibre was molded. The football season had barely started when the true strength of the Farrell High Eleven was revealed. The result was a complete surprise for everyone. Striking like an enraged tornado, the “Blue and Gold” toppled over all opposition and ran up a string of seven consecutive victories. Among this list of victories was one over Sharpsville, whom we have been unable to defeat for the past few seasons. But all tornadoes must die down, and we suffered our only defeat of the season at the hands of Sharon High, our most bitter rival. This was a disappointing defeat, for with it our hopes for an undisputed claim for the Mercer County Championship vanished, and it enabled Sharpsville to claim a tie for the championship. Even though we lost complete control of the championship trophy, our season was a decided success. It was the best season a Farrell football team ever enjoyed, for it was the first time that a football championship was brought to Farrell.

Mr. Ganaposki had little hope, but taking what he had, he developed a squad that was to be a very strong contender for the championship of the County. After winning three of the scheduled games, we were handed two setbacks, but as the season progressed our team kept getting stronger and stronger, winning the rest of the scheduled games. Then came the County Tournament. Sharon was drawn for the first game. Would history repeat itself? We were determined to even up. We did. Sharpsville and Greenville went under the great avalanche of Farrell victories. At last we accomplished the impossible; thus, for the first time since Nineteen Twenty-Six and for the fifth time since the annual tourney was started sixteen years ago, the basketball title is in Farrell’s hands; there to stay until the following year, when the same course will be run. To Coach Ganaposki goes our everlasting gratitude for his untiring efforts in putting on the basketball court, one of the greatest and most successful basketball teams ever to represent our Alma Mater.

There has been a decided increase in the attendance at night games. Records show that the attendance has been double that of last year. The Farrell team has been successful in breaking the jinx held over it by Grove City and Sharpsville by defeating them 19-0 and 13-6, respectively. Very rarely, very seldom does Coach Ganaposki laugh when his gridders are in action. It happened in the Grove City game when End Brown made a spectacular run. “The dope bucket' was upset when the Sharon gridders defeated the Farrell football team. Tomich, Phillips and Toskin received positions on the All-County Football Team. The 1930 season was the most successful one ever enjoyed in Farrell High. Eight games out of a hard schedule of nine were won. This is the first time in the history of Farrell High School that an outstanding football team was produced. Farrell High has gained renown all over the state because of fair tactics in all its sports. Farrell High School played its first game of spring football on May 15, with Chaney High School of Youngstown, Ohio. Farrell will have permanent possession of the football trophy if they defeat Sharpsville High next year. Our victory over Sharon on their court is considered by Farrell fans as a mighty feat. This is the first time it ever happened on the new Sharon court. To defeat Sharon three times in one season is a difficult task to accomplish. The Farrell squad did it! Ed Winslow, Farrell eager, is a high honor student as well as a good athlete. Do you know that Pete Lcyshock was center on both the football and basketball teams? Our 37-13 victory over Greenville in the final game of the tournament gave Farrell their fifth county title, the second under Coach Ganaposki’s tutorship. In the three tournament games, no Farrell player left the game via the personal foul route. Hyatt and Leyshock were on the All-Tourney Team selected by the officials. Farrell High cagers won the District 10 championship by virtue of their victories over Erie Academy and Oil City. The Farrell High basketball team won sixteen out of the regular schedule of eighteen games. They have won nineteen straight games in the whole season of 1931. It seems as though Farrell's mascot predicts every basketball victory. Farrell High’s championship drive came to a close when the classy Scott High passers defeated them at the Pitt Stadium. “The most alert and the best fighting team I have ever coached,” is Mr. Ganaposki’s tribute to the 1930 squad. Sixty-OneOUR TROPHIES After five years of waiting and effort, Farrell High School again became the proud possessor of the basketball trophy and the mahogany plaque which symbolize that the Farrell Basketball Team has marched triumphantly through the Mercer County Basketball Tournament. This trophy, which is beautifully mounted, will remain in Farrell until the next tournament. The silver plaque, which is mounted on a mahogany finish, will remain in permanent possession of Farrell High School. Sixty-TicoTHE BASKETBALL SQUAD ITRST ROW: Coach Upton. Mary Tnliano.

These losses did not weaken their fighting spirit, but inspired them to come back with added energy and with the hope of winning the next game. The team was strong in offensive playing as well as in defensive playing, having won six games and tied one, playing eleven in all. The defeats were suffered at the hands of Sharon and New Castle, each having won two games apiece from the Farrell girls, showing that, in reality, they lost to only two teams. They tied their game with Warren. This success, based on the spirit of the players and fans by their exhibition of true sportsmanship, was due to Miss Nora Upton, who with very few experienced players, worked both hard and patiently until her team was brought to the front. The team was composed of the following players: Gelfand, King, Nugent, Rudley, Taliano, Quarterson, Sarcinella, Rocke, Phillips, Luther and Novak. With only two of these players being lost by graduation, we are hoping that the girls will have an even more successful season next year. i JUNIOR HIGH BASKETBALL We may compare our Junior High Team to Aviation Prep School pupils, wherein the rookies are taught the fundamentals of their aims. Just as aviators are taught many things before they can actually take the plane into the air and perform, so are the Junior High Basketball members, under the direction of Mr. Lewis, taught many fundamental things before they can actually play varsity basketball and perform their well-earned ability. Mr. Lewis, a former star athlete of Westminster, was chosen to cultivate their personal ability. After having practiced for many hard hours, the boys soon became capable of facing opposition. Five games were scheduled for them, three of which they won. They suffered one defeat by the Buhl Club Midgets, but later in the season beat them in another hard battle. These boys, our future champions and stars, are composed of: Chimileski, Magnotto, Brockman, Johnson, Winslow, Gardner, Andrew-kowicz, Martinko, Yurcich, Hillman, Benya, Lazor, Pritchard, Toskin, Carlos, Tinley, Novacol and Kadich.

THE ALPHA LITERARY SOCIETY The Alpha Literary Society, which was organized in 1924, is one of the most active clubs in our school. It aims to improve the music and the literary abilities of its members and to sponsor the Interscholastic Contests. For the purpose of raising funds for the Music-Literary Contestants’ awards, a play is presented annually by the society. Gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded to students who have represented the school in two contests within the year. Blue sweaters with gold stripes on the sleeves, designating how often the student has participated in Literary Contests, are awarded to Senior Contestants. Educational as well as social semi-monthly meetings are held. The main social events of the year were the swimming parties, the dances, and the meetings with the Spe-Re-Wri Club of Sharon High School. Sixty-SevenFIRST ROW: I .a Verne Lucas, Helen Ferrenee.

Short talks on the subject of banking are given each Monday by the members. In our monthly meetings which are held in Room 4 after school hours, we discuss methods of how to interest students in banking. In the contest on thrift, the lower grades carried off the honors. The officers are: Luther Low, President; Alfred Schlesinger, Vice President; Alta Quarterson, Secretary; Thomas Kerins, Treasurer; Mr. John Hetra, Faculty Adviser.

THE JUNIOR BUSINESS LEAGUE Our Junior Business League aims to give the Commercial students of Farrell High School the fundamentals of business essentials to success and also to present to the Commercial students who have won first, second or third place in the County Round-Up, a gold, silver or bronze medal, respectively. The semi-monthly meetings are educational as well as social. At various meetings talks are given by members of the Faculty. A special meeting was held in which Mr. Peters from Youngstown gave an interesting talk on the history of the Comptometer and the life of its inventor, Mr. Felt. Miss Walters also gave a demonstration on the Comptometer. The members of the League combine pleasure with their work. They took a number of interesting trips; the two outstanding trips were to Biggin’s Ice Cream Factory and to the Colonial Trust Company. The governing cabinet is: President, Coe Fisher; Vice President, Bernard Songer; Secretary, Leona Chaussard; Reporter, Marie Brunet; Advisers, Miss Donlin, Mr. Wagner and Miss Gibson.

THE BAND Two years ago, when the call came twenty-four students were on hand for the first band practice. After some practice in the art of music, these musical aviators donned their Blue and Gold band uniforms. They made their first appearance at the Farrell-Sharon basketball game at the home court. Here the band was tremendously applauded when it marched around the floor and formed the Farrell “F.” Vacation interrupted their marches for awhile, but when the football season arrived, they were on hand with a bigger and better band. The band had increased to thirty-two members. It participated at both football and basketball games and became a great success. Praise for the band increased when the Farrell Band played for the Armistice Day Celebration at New Castle, and for the Home Coming of Senator James J. Davis. Our band will journey to the Grove City gymnasium to urge our successful basketball team on to VICTORY. Thus, with the close of the Annual Basketball Tournament, the Farrell Band will close its proceedings until the next Football Season. Seventy-OneFIRST ROW: Alice Monks. Hannah Schell. Lillian Zoldan.

THE SENIOR HIGH GLEE CLUB From behind the heavy smoke screen of silence a plane bearing its eighty passengers emerges and soars into view. The spectators stand aghast! They burst into applause as the plane loops-the-loop with “Tulip Time,” sideslips with “Polished Pebbles,” and hits the sky with “Up in the Air.” This airship is the Senior Glee Club. It has been working diligently to inspire the appreciation of good music in Farrell High School. These endeavors have not been in vain since success may be measured by the beautiful operettas given by the members of the club. This year the executive body of the club consists of the following members: President, Frances Wirbanich; Vice President, Ellen Dvoryak; Secretary, Madeline Turzak; Reporter, Bernice Turner; Adviser, Miss Jamison.

Although a number of the talented members were graduated last year, the spirit of the orchestra has been maintained. The orchestra composed of students from the Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior Classes is capable of playing either classical or popular music. Throughout the year it has furnished music for Literary Contests, plays, operettas and dances.

But to add to its attractiveness, dramatize “Up in the Air,” the operetta with the aviation theme, which took place in sunny California. This operetta was presented by the musical organizations of Farrell High School on Thursday April 10, 1930, under the direction of Miss Virginia Jamison. The purpose of the performance was to raise funds in order to purchase music, instruments and band uniforms. Thanks to the artistic ability of Robert Wheeler of Class of 1930, the scenery for the operetta was painted to perfection.

EightyTHE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION The Farrell High School Alumni Association includes all graduates of the school and the wives or husbands of any one who has graduated from Farrell High School or any one who has attended Farrell High School for one full year or more. When the members of the Class of 1931 are included, we will have almost twelve hundred on our Alumni roll. If the saying is true that the strength of a school is in her Alumni, one can to a great degree ascribe the present strength and prosperity of our school to this large and loyal band of graduates, nearly all of whom use their influence wherever possible to promote the interests of Farrell High School. The purpose and aim of our association is to benefit the athletic, social and scholastic standing of Farrell High School. First: By persuading athletes to remain in school the full four years so that the athletic standing of our school will be maintained. Second: By helping all plays, debates, concerts and contests in a financial way and co-operating with the committees in charge of such affairs, and by purchasing the yearly annual. Third: By helping to foster in the High School pupils the advantages to be had in completing the four-year course, by fostering in them some appreciation of the benefits to be derived from a diligent perusual of studies, and by creating prizes to be awarded for excellency in scholarship. The Alumni officers for this year are: Mrs. Wm. A. Broderick, nee, R. Elizabeth Heinze, 1910, President; Lucy Brunet, 1923, Vice President; Hazel Mae Patton, 1913, Secretary; Harry Shilling, 1924, Treasurer. Board of Directors: Attorney Fred Jarret, 1921, Chairman; Celia Burns, 1914; Ruth Davis, 1926; Jeanette Friedman, 1924; Elmer Griffiths 1923; Margaret Cantelupe, 1926; John Hetra, 1922; Jules Roux, 1921; Florence Read, 1924. During the year the Alumni holds a banquet to honor all athletes and literary contestants of the High School. Beginning last year a scholarship fund was created whereby the boy or girl intending to further his or her education in a higher school of learning, receiving the highest grade for the High School course, is awarded a prize of $100.00 for excellency in scholarship. In order to defray these expenses, the association from time to time sponsors entertainments such as dances, card parties, and benefit shows which are open to all friends of the High School. These have been moderately successful in the past, but still are not up to par. Every graduate should turn out for these affairs in the future even at personal sacrifice, for the sake of dear old Farrell High. MRS. WM. A. BRODERICK, President. Eighty-One.SADIE WEISSBERGER JANICE ROSENBLUM HONOR STUDENTS Sadie Weissberger, valedictorian of the Class of 1930, completed the General Course in three years with an average of 93.75 per cent and with sixteen credits. She was a member of the Alpha Literary Society and of the Senior High Glee Club.

The first Scholarship prize of one hundred dollars ever to be awarded by the Farrell High School Alumni Association was presented to Sadie at the June Banquet. Janice Rosenblum, the salutatorian of the Class of 1930, was graduated in the Academic Course with an average of 93.625 per cent and with nineteen and a half credits. During her high school career Janice was an active member of the Alpha Literary Society, the Glee Club, the Reflector Staff, and participated in the Alpha Literary Play, the Junior and Senior Class Plays and in the Interscholastic Contests. At present, Janice is enrolled in the Education Course at Slippery Rock State Teachers College where she is active in literary and dramatic events. ighty-Tu'oBERNICE TURNER OUR VOCALIST Bernice Turner, a member of the Class of 1932, has won a secure place on the honor roll of Farrell High School by her vocal ability. As a representative of our school, she competed in the state finals and won second place in the State Contest held at Philadelphia, May 10, 1930. Her first honor was that of the victory in the annual Mercer County Interscholastic Contest, which made it possible for her to bring her school the fame that she did. She won her next laurels at the Northwestern Pennsylvania Contest in Meadville, Pennsylvania, in which six counties were included. After this contest, the Board of Education made plans to send Bernice to Philadelphia where she emerged victorious. Not only has she won Scholastic Contests, but she has also gained much praise and popularity from her host of radio fans over Station WKBN at Youngstown, Ohio. Everyone is proud of our young vocalist who has brought fame and honor to our community. Kiffhty-ThrceLITERARY CONTESTANTS FIRST ROW: Francos Dmohoski. Mildred Roux. Elsie Mao Rickenbrodo.

I THE INTERSCHOLASTICS On April 11, 1930, our Interscholastic Dirigible left its mooring mast and glided gracefully on a non-stop flight to Penn High School's Hangar in Greenville, where throngs awaited its arrival for the Annual Music-Literary Round-Up. After they had demonstrated their ability, everyone anxiously awaited the decisions of the judges. When this period of relaxation was over, the assembly was informed that Farrell High School had won third place in the Class A Contest and fourth place in the County Round-Up. This success was due to the diligent efforts of the coaches, Miss Wallace, Miss Gojdics, Miss Riley, Miss Burrows, Miss Mickulonic, Miss Wible, Miss Bobby, Miss Jamison, Mr. Mason, and Mr. Hetra. The county presented gold, silver and bronze medals to the first, second and third winners of the Class A and B schools. Eiuhtu-FourCOMMERCIAL CONTESTANTS FIRST ROW: Dorothy Kudelko. Mary Gracenin.

No. 2 BY MARY UDRITCH STUDENT CREED I believe in the Farrell High School as an institution which gives a training beyond price, developing those qualities that produce the finest type of American citizenship, personality, honesty, reliability, promptness in meeting obligations, service, and morality—and trains for the serious business of life. I therefore believe it my duty to render cheerfully and enthusiastically every assigned service, to co-operate with the faculty and fellow students, and to uphold scholarship, and to maintain at all times a loyal school attitude. ENROLLMENT The total enrollment of the Senior High School is 908 pupils. The enrollment is as follows: Freshmen ...................... 350 Sophomores .................... 229 Juniors ....................... 183 Seniors ....................... 146 OUR FOOTBALL FIELD The new improvements on our football field have made it one of the best fields in this part of the state. It has been taken care of by workmen throughout the whole summer; new grandstands have been purchased. The greatest improvement is the introduction of a lighting system. This is a great honor for Farrell High School since it is the first school in Northwestern Pennsylvania to have flood lights. CLASS MEMORIALS The Class of 1930 purchased a very fine filing cabinet as their class memorial to the Farrell High School. The cabinet is used solely for Reflector work, for the purpose of collecting material for our year book. It is also the first piece of furniture for the Reflector Room, which is to be one of the features of our new High School. The wicker furniture and the rug which are to be seen in the Teachers’ Room and in many plays, are gifts of the Class of ’29. The beautiful Baby Grand Piano, the memorial of the Class of 1928, has played a prominent part in all our school activities. The bronze tablets of Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Speech” and a selection from Scott, were presented by the Classes of 1926 and 1927 respectively. The statuary and the beautiful oil paintings, which are in the main hall, are memorials of the Classes of 1924 and 1925. All previous classes presented beautiful oil paintings which may be seen in some of our class rooms. JUNIOR WORKERS The Junior Workers under the supervision of Miss Moraca, sell refreshments at football and basketball games, in order to help defray expenses of the Junior-Senior banquet. This little group of workers has accomplished much toward the success of the Junior-Senior Banquet. Members of the Junior Workers are as follows: William Griffiths, Edward Kar- pinski, Thomas Kerins, William Magnotto, Mary McCartney, Jack Miller, Lillian Scott, Roy Thomas, Steve Wasko. NIGHT FOOTBALL When night comes because no one can stop it, you may find in the parks, country roads and even in the trees, lovers who bill and coo while the man in the moon winks at the stars and laughs up his sleeve. Night means privacy, and day means scarcity of lovers. But whoever thought that night football would be played at Farrell? Well, to make a long story short, it gave Kif h ty-Sevin2 THE BEACON Class of 1931 BY MARY UDRITCH many people a chance to attend games which they couldn’t attend in the day. The result—Farrell tied Sharpsville for Mercer County Champion. This was due mostly to the great support of the team by the football fans who would rather attend a game than play ping-pong with the neighbors or feel the new tooth of little Oswald who is the center of attraction in the neighborhood. As the gossipers will tell you, we won eight games and lost, one—that one to Sharon—a feat never accomplished by any other team of Farrell. As years roll by, you will always remember the football team of 1930. This team was under the leadership of Pete Leyshock, our captain and Mercer County’s all-star football center. Every player fought like a tiger and when the game was over, the opposing team would think lightning struck them while the Blue and Gold warriors were as cool as cucumbers. We must not forget Coaches Genaposki and Wagner, who were responsible for our successful team. They accomplished what they set out to do. Last, but not least, think of the referees and umpires who received jeers instead of cheers. But such is football life. Ho, hum! THE FOOTBALL TROPHIES “To the victors belong the spoils.” Therefore Farrell and Sharpsville, who tied for the Mercer County Football Championship, are the proud possessors of two ornamental football trophies. The Schmidt Memorial Trophy is to remain in Sharpsville for the first six months, and the Ideal Service Stations’ Trophy will remain in Farrell during these six months. At the end of six months, both schools will exchange trophies. As the Schmidt Trophy is a three-year trophy, it will be handed over to next year’s Mercer County Champs. The Ideal Stations’ Trophy will remain in permanent possession of the winner of the 1931 football game between Farrell and Sharpsville.

Members of the varsity squads act as coaches and referees for the inter-class games. The schedules for the boys’ and girls’ games are the same. They are as follows: Seventh versus Eighth; Ninth versus Tenth, and Eleventh versus Twelfth. Winners of Seventh-Eighth and Nirth-Tcnth grades then play. The victors in turn play with the winner of the Eleven-Twelfth grade game, and the grade that wins this fray is pronounced the champion. Since each team is boosted by its class, the attendance is always large. THE BOOSTERS BONFIRE The Farrell Boosters, an organization of our business men, sponsored a bonfire to celebrate our Mercer County Championship victory. On March 16, at 7:30, a parade was formed on Fruit Avenue, south of Haywood Street. It was led by State Troopers and the High School Band. The procession went over Fruit Avenue, down Idaho, over Broadway to Hayw’ood, then up Haywood Street until they reached the football field. At the field speeches were given by Mr. Ganaposki, Mr. Wagner, Mr. Irwin and Mr. Stoeber, the director of athletics at Thiel College. At last the great moment arrived. The fire had been started! Soon the flames were leaping into the air. Exclamations of delight were heard from the crowd as the light from the fire changed the darkness into semi-daylight. As the fire grew smaller so did the crowd, but their holiday spirit did not leave them. This affair showed the valley what loyal boosters the Farrell team has. The whole town, old and young, were present to celebrate the victory. “Our hoys have won the Mercer County Championship so we have reason to be happy.’’ These words were spoken by Mr. Anderson at an assembly held in honor of our floor team on March 9th. Mr. Thorn, director of athletics at Grove City College, presented the trophy to Mr. Anderson. Medals were presented to the team by Coach Ganaposki. The program was concluded by cheers led by John Nolan. More reasons to be happy! Farrell basketball team is now’ the champs of District 10. This time the trophy was presented by Mr. Stoeber, director of athletics at Thiel College. After the medals were awarded to the team, our mascot, “Midge” Magnotto, congratulated the team on its good work and urged them to take the State Title. This meeting was also closed by cheers. SEMPER FIDELES The Semper Fideles Club is an organization formed by thirteen Senior boys, who maintain that the ties of Friendship should not be broken after graduation. This aim is carried out in the club-name, Semper Fideles—“Always Faithful.” Many social events are sponsored by the club, including: parties, a basketball game with the Senior Girls’ Basketball Team, and a wiener roast. In addition to this, the members have decided to hold a banquet each year after graduation. The membership includes: President, Michael Bobish: Vice President, Pete Bil-lioni; Secretary, Joseph Monaco; Treasurer, .josepn iviorar; Andrew Waliga, Anthony Russo, Bernard Songer, Stanley Jan-usko, Edward Ebeling, William Jackson, Rocko Bono, Mickey Dzurinda, and Steve Samball. JUNIOR POLICE The Junior Police is a group of boys from the Senior High School whose duty is to put up the canvas and to patrol the field during football games, to act as usher uuring basketball games, and to see that the lines are orderly during dismissal. Eighty-NineBY PAULINE KUTNAK SOCIETY NEWS JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET The Social Calendar of 1930 was brought to a close on May 22, 1930, when the Seniors were honored guests of the Junior Class at the annual Junior-Senior Banquet. A delicious dinner was served at the Methodist Dining Rooms by the Ladies of the Brenner Class. The menu included: Fruit cocktail, chicken (English style), mashed potatoes and gravy, buttered peas, green vegetable salad, rolls and jelly, ice cream, cake and coffee. Luther Low, the Junior Class President, acted as toastmaster at the affair. Luther delivered the speech of welcome, and Albert Pintar, President of the Senior Class, responded. Bernice Turner, a guest artist, gave several beautiful vocal numbers. Talks were also given by Mr. W. W. Irwin and Mr. W. R. Anderson. The Banqueters then retired to the gym, where music for danfcing was furnished by Les Daniels Orchestra. The gym was transferred into a beautiful dance hall. A huge Japanese lantern formed the center light decoration, with the class colors forming the streamers. The success of the event is to be credited to Miss Riley, the Junior Class Adviser, and to the committees in charge. SENIORS HOLD WIENER ROAST The Senior Class of 31 was caught in the midst of a wind-storm caused by the commotion of their first social gathering, resulting in the Wiener Roast, held Tuesday, October 7, 1930. Through the courtesy of Myer Frank’s Furniture Store, the People’s Hardware Store and John Losik, the Seniors were piloted to their destination and landed at Buhl Park. The entertainment consisted of games, dancing, and vocal solos by several of our talented girls. Red Gross and his Tin Pan Orchestra also rendered several musical selections. In the midst of their enjoy- ment, the Seniors were hurled into a panic over the disappearance of some of the refreshments. In due time, however, all were found. We ate, made merry, and were then piloted “back home.” BANKING COUNCIL WIENER ROAST An occasion to be remembered by many of the younger fliers is the Banking Council Wiener Roast, held Tuesday, October 14, 1930, at Buhl Park Landing Field. The night was an ideal one for a roast, with the moon and the girls inspiring the boys to build a huge bonfire over which they roasted their wieners and marshmallows. An enjoyable program was given by the Frisco Boys, the Turner Sisters and Steve Kudelko. THE SENIOR DANCE On November 21, 1930, the Senior High students stopped their plane of learning to enjoy a few twirls in the High School Gymnasium. The passengers, having discarded their uniforms for a few hours, made their entrance in the gymnasium in their dark new suits and flowing dresses. Music was furnished by the Harmony Seven. TEACHERS GOLF PARTY The teachers of the Farrell High and Public Schools were guests at a Golf Party, given by Messrs. Ernest and Rudolph Schrot. The party was held at the Evergreen Golf Course on Thursday, February 19, 1930. Golf, cards and dancing were the main attractions of the evening. Special guests at this affair were Mr. and Mrs. Read and Mr. and Mrs. Irwin. SHARON GIRLS ENTERTAIN The Sharon girls proved to be very charming hostesses when the T. M. T. M. Club members entertained the Senior girls of the Valley. NinetyClass of 1931 THE BEACON 5 BY PAULINE KUTNAK The Farrell Higrh Squadron set out for the Sharon Airdome with only one thought in mind—to have a good time. Upon arriving there they were ushered to the auditorium where a program of each school’s individual number was given. The valentine and magic stunts presented by Sharon and Sharpsville High Schools were enjoyed by all. The program was followed by dancing in the gymnasium. Refreshments were served in the cafeteria. SWIMMING PARTY A swimming party sponsored by the Alpha Literary Society was held on February 15, 1931, at the St. John’s Parish House, at Sharon. It was a very cold night, but this did not keep our bathers from venturing into the water where they enjoyed the swimming for one hour. In spite of the fact that transportation was not furnished, a large number of students attended. BUSINESS LEAGUE OUTING The day of the Junior Business League Picnic had finally arrived. The truck was soon filled, and the happy members were driven to Riverside. Many future opera performers made their debut at the opening of the program. Many games were played and a stunt was presented. This caused each picnicker to be the proud owner of a large appetite, and so they ate unsparingly of their limited supply. But as each day must end, this day of days also ended, and the picnickers turned toward home with hopes of more happy gatherings in the near future. JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET May 28! Subdued voices! Exclamations of delight! Tense excitement filled the air. A riot? No, something more important—the Junior-Senior Banquet! In anticipation of this great event, the JuitTors put forth much effort to make this banquet the most successful of any yet held. To the strains of Sam Campagna’s low, melodious music, and the entrancing voice of the crooner, the gym was immediately transformed into a panorama of coIot. The charming girls, beautiful in exquisite evening gowns glided slowly in the arms of handsome and well groomed boys. The Juniors were highly rewarded for their hard work by the sincere appreciation of their guests. SENIOR GIRLS’ PARTY On Monday, April 20, 1931, the Senior girls entertained the Senior girls of Sharon and Sharpsville High Schools at an enjoyable party in the Farrell High School Gymnasium. The entertainment began with the Farrell girls presenting a one-act play, “A Matter of Husbands," a vocal solo by Helen Szabo; a Style Show by a group of Seniors. The Sharon Seniors delighted the audience with two recitations and a piano solo; the Sharpsville girls presented an interesting pantomine. At the conclusion of the program, the girls enjoyed several hours of dancing to the music of Billy Ward and the Harmony Seven Orchestra. After the dance the girls went to the cafeteria where refreshments consisting of home-made cake and ice cream were served to one hundred seventy-five girls. The committees in charge of the party were: Refreshment, Gertrude Galizia, El- len Dvoryak, Catherine Smith, Helen Bou-gher, Wilma Ingram, Bernadette Heagney; Entertainment, Marie Brunet, Tressa Mason, Frances Wirbanich, Rachel Roqueplot, Ethel Madura; Reception, Rose Gelfand, Mildred Neely, Julia Marshall, Alta Quar-terson, Helen Seeman; Orchestra, Virginia Quinn, Evelyn Campbell. The advisers of the party were: Miss Sarah Cooley, Miss Margaret Jones and Miss Helen Mickulonic.
