FARRELL SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL
Standing majestically, the new Farrell Senior High School holds dominion over
a spacious campus on East Haywood Street. As the beauty spot of our city, this
modern, fireproof construction basks in the merited glory of its artistic workmanship,
as well as in the long-waited goal of achievement that it represents.
On November 30, 1939, the modernistic entrances of our new high school stood
ajar to admit townspeople and visitors to view the twenty-two class rooms, four
commercial rooms, four science laboratories, a visual education room, an art room,
a library, a mechanical drawing room, the superinte-ndent's office suite, the principal's
office suite, the secretary's office and board room, two teachers' rest rooms, the
band and music room, the combined auditorium and gymnasium with the stage, four
storage rooms, two shower and locker rooms, two health rooms, a cedar storage
room, two home economics rooms, a housekeeping suite, two machinery rooms, a
boiler room, four shops, two coaches' quarters, and a cafeteria.
This modern edifice with its marble and travertine finished hallways, its master
tile and terrazzo floors, its air conditioning units, and its automatic eye control
lighting facilities met the approval of all participants in the Dedication Day tours.
Climaxing in an all-important evening ceremony held in the auditorium-gymnasium
before a mass crowd of approximately three thousand attendants, the exercises of
Dedication Day, November 30, were a worthy demonstration of appreciation for the
"House of Learning" which stands a monument to the progress of educational
Although we, the graduating Class of 1940, shall be listed among those missing
from the classrooms and hallways of this, our Alma Mater, we ask, as the first
students to be graduated from its portals, that you who aspire to graduate in years
to come may cherish it as have we. Grant this glorious Alma Mater the respect it
merits! Grant it the long life of' beauty you alone can give it! Dedicate yourselves
as the foundation upon which this epitome of achievement may rest!
"Strive on and on, oh, Alma Materg
Fly the blue and gold on high!
We shall pledge our faith triumphant
To our school, to Farrell High!" l

PENNSYLVANIA STATE EDUCATION
ASSOCIATION AND TEACHER PROBLEMS
The rapid changes taking place in world and domestic affairs increase problems
of maintaining livelihood for everyone. Without exception, teachers face important
tasks in safeguarding their professional interests. However, not only are teachers
responsible to themselves, but more important, to society for the preservation and
progress of the public schools. Teachers must recognize this obligation for the
benefit of the boys and girls who are entitled to free and adequate schooling as
their accepted heritage in a democracy.
Experience shows that intelligent and effective effort toward accomplishing a
desired end is possible only on a cooperative basis. In no way other than by collab-
oration with their colleagues can teachers produce results that are to be expected of
any enlightened group today. In order to bring this about all local branches of the
Pennsylvania State Education Association are intensifying their activities this year.
Their job is to promote understanding, and to create a desire for cooperation on
the home front. This is essential to the winning of undertakings begun by the state
and the national associations.
One of the most urgent of problems before teachers deals with financing ed-
ucation. With millions of students in schools, there remains a million or two more
who are denied opportunity to attend. Even where facilities exist, these become
subject to attack in times of stress, which is, particularly, when they are needed most.
Along with the problem of preserving schools themselves, there exists the
need of protecting and extending the concept that democracy and education are
inseparable. To this end, however, democracy must be practiced, not just taught,
in the educational process from top to bottom.
Not since the days of World War I, has the world situation presented an
ominous appearance as at present. If anything, the strong waves and undertones
of bigotry, racial prejudice, and ignorance coupled with unemployment have made
our times worse than in the last generation. However, teachers should not bc
pessimistic, but rather the more eager to accept the challenge. Their discharge of re-
sponsibilities in a manner that recognizes social obligations should have the effect
of improved moral and socio-economic readjustments that will follow the current
Withal, perhaps, the most vital need to the attainment of any objective is the
preservation of academic freedom-an unswerving opposition to either foreign or
domestic ideologies not consistent with the spirit and purpose of the American Bill
of Rights .
The local branch recognizes and believes it is working toward the fulfillment
of its obligations.

CLASS HISTORY OF l94O'
Graduated! Four of the happiest years of our lives flown! Reminiscing, was
it not only yesterday that we entered high school as mischievous, wide-eyed fresh-
men? Was it not only yesterday that we felt honored to converse with our upper
classmen, even though we were buffeted about by their quips? Yes, it was only
yesterday, and inexperienced though we were, we accomplished practical things that
year, our first year of high school life. Under the supervision of Mr. Anthony
Kilbert, we elected James Munro, president, Betty Rose Broderick, vice-presidentg
and Doris Ruger, secretary. We chose "Excelsior" for our motto, royal blue and
silver for our colors, and the forget-me-not for our flower. Commencement exer-
cises and diplomas climaxed the events of the year.
Miss Anne Gojdics supervised our sophomore year when we elected James
Munro, president: Betty Rose Broderick, vice-president: and Martha Frantz, sec-
retary. Although our Freshman year was extremely interesting, we had always
regretted the fact that we were not permitted to compete with the upper classmen,
so we were elated when, as Sophomores, we were given an opportunity to participate
in literary and athletic events. A large number of our classmates competed in the
various fields, and were rewarded according to their merits and abilities.
After a comparatively eventful Sophomore year, we were admitted into the
ranks of the upper classn1en. Directed by Miss Julia Wallace, we named Edward
Frank, Betty Rose Broderick, and Anastasia Hrisoulas as our officers. We sponsored
the Moonlight Dance with marked success. In the Class Day Field Meet, we matched
our athletic ability withlthat of the Seniors. The much anticipated affair of the
year was, of course, the Junior-Senior Prom which we sponsored. Bidding the
Seniors farewell and good luck at the Farewell Assembly, we accepted the responsi-
bilities conferred upon us as the future Senior Class.
Captivated by our surroundings in the beautiful Farrell Senior High School,
we began the final year in our high school career under the supervision of Miss
Esther Zentz. To our class advisor, we attribute the success of the first nmin event
of our senior year, our class play, "Almost Eighteen", a comedy in three acts. Then
we selected our class emblems, class rings, commencement announcements, and class
day uniforms. Many of our classmates were members of the Night Rider and the
Reflector Staffs, of the athletic teams, and contestants in the Music-Literary Con-
test. With the aid of our class advisor and class officers, we successfully sponsored
the first school dance of the year. At the close of the term, we matched our athletic
ability with the juniors on the second annual Field Day.
Sadly and tearfully, we took leave of our Alma Mater at the Farewell Assembly,
following which we journeyed to Conneaut Lake, where with the seniors of surround-
ing schools we had a gala time. We were the guests of the Juniors at thc Junior-
Senior Prom. Finally came Baccalaureate services and Commencement Night! These
events ended our sojourn through school. We departed with the hope that we had
contributed the right precedent to the future classes of Farrell Senior High School.

We competed in contests, acted in plays.
Tests and discussions made busy our days.
We wrote and read essays, debated, declaimed,
Each student strove to achieve what he aimed.
How painful the thoughts are when we reminisce,
We'll long to remain hereg our friends we will miss.
Now life must claim us: we go with a sigh,
But we leave friends behind us in dear Farrell High.

ANTHONY STABILE ANGELINE BONADIO HENRY PRATT
President Secretary Vice President
In September, 1937, we entered the Freshman Class. What a memorable day
it was when we were given the opportunity to become a genuine part of the high
school! The male members of our group good naturedly permitted the upperclass-
men to relieve them of the task of combing their hair by removing all their curly
locks. When the confusion of the first few weeks had terminated, we attempted
more serious things. With the competent assistance of our advisor, Mr. Kilbert,
we chose the following to be our leaders: John McKay, presidentg Darrell Maxwell,
vice-president: Emily Jane Sherwood, secretary. Under their guidance, we sold
magic writing pads to pay for our Reflector photographs. Although we were repre-
sented in practically every school activity, the pinnacle of our initial year of sec-
ondary school was our commencement. We had the distinction of being the first
Freshman Class in Farrell High School History to compile and present a progressive
program. With our Junior High Diplomas tucked under our arms, we left the school
to enjoy three months of relaxation and recreation.
After duly initiating the incoming Freshman Class the following September,
we were thrust into a whirlpool of activities. We elected our class officers. With
Miss Ann Gojdics, as our advisor, we chose Anthony Stabile, president, Peter Barber,
vice-president, and Angeline Bonadio, secretary. We were again represented in all
school activities, but this year we occupied more conspicuous positions, especially on
the football, the basketball, and the music-literary teams and in the operetta cast.
All these passed rapidly and in the spring, the crowning event of the year, the
Freshman-Sophomore Frolic took place. This enjoyable dance proved to be the
zenith of our social life in our high school career. Thus, having successfully com-
pleted half of our course, we paused to enjoy a brief summer intermission to prepare
our minds and bodies for the more serious duties of Juniors.
Our third year of high school has proved to be one of the most adventurous
of our lives. As we sought to adjust ourselves in our new school, we found new in-
centives and set forth to greater achievements. Under the direction of Miss Julia
Wallace, we re-elected Anthony Stabile for president, and Angeline Bonadio for
secretary, and chose Henry Pratt for our new vice-president. With a minimum of
activities taking place, we eagerly anticipated our Junior-Senior Prom. Reviewing
thc past three enjoyable years, wc need not be ashamed of our record, and looking
forward to our Senior year, we can only hope that it will be as successful as the

ln the fall of 1935, we, as Freshmen, began our first year of high school. How
excited we all were! We shall never forget our first days of high school when we
were a little enthralled by the upper classmen. Neither will the freshman boys forget
the welcome given them by the older boys who had initiated them by cutting their
After acquainting ourselves with new and interesting studies, and after witness-
ing thrilling ball games, we selected class officers under the guidance of Mr. Anthony
Kilbert, our Freshman Class advisor. Following a few days of anxious waiting, we
learned that John Mouganis had been selected class president, Robert Day, vice presi-
dent, and Lena Mazzotti, secretary.
Our activities during that year were many: the Latin Club, the French Club,
the Junior Tri-Hi-Y and the Student Forum. Probably the most important work of
the year for many students was their participation in the music-literary contest.
After weeks of hard work and preparation for this event, the contestants won high
honors in the annual Mercer County Music-Literary Round-up, which was held in
Grove City, March 31, 1939.
The social event of the year was the "Freshman-Sophomore Frolic," a dance
held by both Freshman and Sophomore Classes. With the g11idance of our teachers
and the cooperation of many students, this event, enjoyed by everyone, proved to
be a great success.
On commencement night, June 1, 1939, our junior high school was filled with
happy, excited Freshmen waiting breathlessly for their diplomas. At the close of the
Commencement Excersises, we received our cherished diplomas, and this event culmi-
nated our Freshman year. We all looked forward to three carefree months and to
the day when we would enter senior high school.
After our vacation, we returned to school with more determination to gain
knowledge and to succeed, than ever before.
This year, with the guidance of Miss Anne Gojdics, we have selected Norman
Solomon as president, John Mouganis as vice president, and Goldie Mikulin as secre-
tary. The activities this year are many: the French Club, Senior Tri-Hi-Y, Mixed
Chorus, Glee Club, Band and Orchestra, and the Student Forum. Again the Soph-
omores, together with the upper classes, are preparing for the Music-Literary Contest
and are also engaged in minor activities.
We, the Class of 1942, are proud to be the first Sophomore Class in our beauti-
ful new senior high school, and having entered Farrell high to learn, we shall go
forth to serve.

Although the Blue and Gold had an "off-year" schedule in 1939, much training
was needed to put a squad into the field. With only three lettermen returning, the
coaches set to work to produce a winning team from the 87 men reporting for
practice. After much field work and "skull practice", an inexperienced but deter-
mined aggregation was chosen to fulfill the hopes of the Farrell football fans.
Farrell's Night Riders opened their football season by defeating a fighting Erie
team by the score of 12 to 7. Erie made scoring threats in the last half, but each
time Farrell's defense tightened and Erie was unable to score again.
In a game played mostly in a downpour of rain, the Farrell High Alumni knocked
the varsity from the ranks of the undefeated. During the first quarter, the varsity
made a fifty-nine yard drive to the Alumni one yard line, but were turned back.
The teams exchanged punts in the second and third quarters. The Alumni gained
possession of the ball on the varsity nine yard line after a fumble, and in four plays
they crossed the goal line and scored the extra point on a run. The game ended
shortly afterwards with the Alumni winning 7 to 0.
St. Joseph of Oil City handed the Night Riders their second setback of the
season at Oil City. St. Joseph opened the scoring in the second quarter and rallied
with two eighty yard touchdown runs in the early part of the fourth quarter. Farrell's
lone touchdown came in the closing minutes of thc fourth quarter. The game ended
with St. Joseph on the long end of a 26 to 7 score.
The Night Riders showed real form against St. Mary's of Pittsburgh, when they
scored twice in the first quarter after long drives. An aerial attack paved the way
to score again in the second and fourth quarters. Farrell's defense proved too tight
for St. Mary's and the game ended with Farrell's winning 26 to 0.
Farrell won its most important victory from Cathedral Prep of Erie, by a 7 to 6
score. In the first quarter, Erie put on a touchdown, but they missed their point
after the touchdowng thus they were defeated when Farrell scored a touchdown and
a point after a touchdown in the third quarter. Erie threatened again, but Farrell
took over in downs, and kicked out of danger. Since the last game on the schedule
with St. Luke's was cancelled due to bad weather, the game with the Cathedral Prep
team ended the football season for Farrell with three victories and two defeats.

One of the greatest basketball seasons in the history
of Farrell High School began on December 11, 1939, when
the Blue and Gold met the St. Joseph High School team
of Mt. Oliver in Pittsburgh. Coach Lewis permitted all
of the players: Monteson, Bosak, Sorokich, Linonis, Kata-
kowski, Cannone, McKinnis, Morocco, Latsko and Mitchell
to perform in the game in order to test them in real action.
Joseph Katakowski, veteran star of lnst season, made fifteen
of the thirty-seven points that brought victory to Farrell.
Monteson and Bosak scored six points each. The score at
-I-U1-,QR LEWIS the half was 18-16, and 37-23 at the close of the game.
r"""' In the first home game of the season, the Blue and
Gold trimmed the Pittsburgh Central Catholics, 35-15.
Again Coach Lewis gave every player a chance to perform, and it was Monteson, who
scored eleven points. Bosak, Sorokich and McKinnis added six points each. The
Central players' scores were evenly divided.
December 16, 1939 will be a memorable night to Joseph Katakowski, who wrote
"Huis to a spectacular scholastic athletic career," when he led his team to victory
with a 28-15 score over St. Luke's of Carnegie. He is an athlete of whom Farrell
fans can well be proud.
Making it four straight victories, the Steelers defeated Duquesne Prep by a
30-19 score. During the game, Monteson scored thirteen points and Sorokich scored
Farrell defeated the hard-fighting St. Joseph's team of Oil City in a 26 to 23
victory. After taking an early lead, Farrell was not headed throughout the game
although the score was 20-18 at the end of the third quarter. Karlovich, who was
in the starting lineup for the first time, played a splendid game.
With a thrilling 22-20 victory, the Alumni marred the Varsity's five game win
streak. Bernard Brysh, who was the ace performer for the Alumni, tallied four field
goals and two foul tries. The Alumni cagers were Brysh, Bonadio, Burieh, Kata-
kowski, Palanti, Caruso, Pochal, Leyshoek, Frew, and Hamilton.
Displaying excellent passing and fine defense, the Steelers won a 39-16 victory
over St. Mary's team of Pittsburgh. Bosak scored thirteen points during thc game.
Farrell showed well at the foul line, making eleven out of fourteen attempts, they
counted fourteen shots from the field.
When Farrell met St. Justin of Pittsburgh, Coach Lewis allowed fourteen of his
players to participate in the game. The members of the first team played in only
part of the first quarter. In the 36-12 victory for the Steelers, Sorokich and Cannone
were high scorers. An interesting feature of the game was that Farrell scored
thirteen points in the third quarter, while they held St. Justin pointless.
Tough luck trailed the Steelers to Johnstown when the Johnstown Central
Catholic team won their fifth consecutive victory of the season and their thirty-First
victory in thirty-four starts. They defeated the Steelers 32-26. Monteson and
Bosak were the high scorers for Farrell.
In a thrilling game with Central Catholic of Pittsburgh, Farrell won its eighth
victory by a 26-24 score. The Steelers led at the end of the first half, but both
teams tied the score at the close of the third quarter. As the lead changed hands,
the spectators shouted themselves hoarse. Monteson was high scorer, having made

Steelers, Farrell High rallied in the fourth period but found themselves on the
short end of the 27-25 count when the final whistle blew. Yarchak and Fabish were

in the new Farrell Senior High School gym.
The Steelers invaded Warren, Ohio, where they defeated Pierre Hill's Presidents
with a 33 to 23 score. In the third and the fourth quarters, the Farrell cagers played

Monteson who made thirteen points.
Greenville High Trojans upset the Steelers for the first time in more than ten
years of basketball competition. The game which was played at the Thiel College
court was filled with action. The lead changed hands several times throughout the

score. The lead changed hands several times throughout the game. Farrell tied
the score just before the final whistle and threw the game into an overtime period.
In the extra period, the pace was fast and the guarding determined. Linonis sank
the foul which was the final point for winning the game. During the contest, Linonis
scored eleven points.
"Hutch" Monteson again was high scorer for the Steelers when they defeated
Hickory High School cagers 33-20. At the end of the first half, the score was 14-13
in favor of Hickory, but the Farrell cagers rallied in the second half and made their
seventeenth win of the season.

won an easy victory over the Brookfield High School eagers, by a 34-17 count.
The Steelers played one of their best defensive games of the season when they
defeated New Castle High School 26-24. Although Farrell led throughout, they were
never able to relax. "It was anyone's game until the final whistle." New Castle

The need for an adequate and sane program of health
and physical education as an integral part of the school
program has long been apparent. Our modern industrial
civilization with its automatic machine and high speed
tension has brought physical and mental strains in modern
living. Unfortunately, there are still a few persons who
fail to realize that because of a changed environment, grow-
ing boys and girls are living in a new world where physical
education becomes a stern necessity if they are to be ade-
quately prepared tu live well and happily. Our schools are
responsible for physical literacy as well as for mental lit-
MARY L. HICKEY
Physical Education is health education. It is recrea-
tion. It is hygiene. It is education in the truest sense. Under present industrial
conditions of living and work, it is more necessary than in the past that our children
be given the opportunity for physical activity and exercise. We live in an age that
deprives the average boy and girl and adult of the joys of the great out-of-doors.
Man must find means to develop his organic vitality and health outside, in the play-
ground or gymnasium. More and more because of our artifical, specialized, indus-
trial life, we must provide means by which wc can actively pursue those activities
that will preserve our organized development essential to health and growth.
Physical Education programs promote the real lessons of education. Such pro-
grams promote behavior, and behavior is the end of education. Through sports and
games children develop good sportsmanship and this means character building in a
real sense. On the playtield with the team, the boys and the girls are stimulated to
practice the lessons of control, poise, and good behavior. They learn to smile in de-
feat to be generous in victory, to follow the leader, and to hold the line with courage
and not to give in, such are the lessons of life. These lessons cannot be preached
or taught-they must be put into active practice in the game of life.
A Physical Education program means a better citizenship. Health, cleanliness,
poise, vitality, and mental alertness are all objectives of a true Physical Education
program. It encourages mass participation so that all may enjoy active sport. It
helps in posture and health service. It believes in recreational opportunities for the
industrial worker. It promotes recreation for adults and play for children.
To carry out this educational interpretation of Physical Education many states
have established through legislative action Physical Education as a part of the
school system. These states are thinking of Physical Education program in the terms
of educational play and athletics. The Physical Education programs are not confined
to the gymnasium. They include health programs, playground programs and athletics
programs-whether indoors or outdoors-in the classroom or on the playfield.
With the development of the idea that education is training for behavior and
that we learn through doing, Physical Education in its educational aspects, rather than
its mere physical training activites, will assume a large place in future educational

During the 1940 wrestling season, twenty-six athletically-inclined boys composed
the Farrell Wrestling Team. Possessing the qualities of initiative, self-reliance, in-
dependence, and self-restraint, these boys confidently matched their prowess with
the teams of other-schools.
Although the season was not distinguished so far as actual victories were con-
cerned, the wrestlers gained in experience. They computed in the following matches:
Erie Academy 19, Farrell 185 Grove City 23, Farrell 9: Erie Academy 1895, Farrell
1755: Grove City 28, Farrell 14.
Culminating the season was the District 10 Tournament which was held at the
Farrell High School. The scores were Grove City 40, Farrell 34, Erie Academy 15,
and Edinboro 7. During the meet, Captain George Burger, Chester Burger and Paul
Low won District 10 championships, while Henry Caputo, Joseph Ruffo, Dominic
Mangone and Gene Milliron won second places.

THE SENIOR CLASS PLAY
From the first call of "Curtain" until the final curtain, a human drama of smiles
and tears was unfolded before a large and an appreciative audience on the evening
of December 8, 1939, when the Class of 1940 prsented "Almost Eighteen." This
three act comedy by Dana Thomas was the first play to be presented in the new gym-
nasium-auditorium. Under the direction of Miss Esther Zentz, the Class of 1940
sponsored the play to raise funds for the commencement and memorial gifts to the
Telling the story of the trials of adolescence, this three act comedy was enacted
by a well trained cast of twelve seniors. Eddie Barry, a young and human genius in
disguise, who attempted to prove himself a man even though he was only "Almost
Eighteen," was played by Stanley Bombeck. The roles of Eddie's mother and father,
the average American parents, were filled by Betty McCauley and Hloward Wharton.
Annette Chiel portrayed the character of Eddie's modern young sister, Beatrice
Barry. Betty Rose Broderick performed as Ann Sherman, Eddie's ideal.
As Mabel Warren, Martha Frantz was the music teacher, and Ann Lengyel, as

The Boys' Chorus, the Girlsf Chorus, the Mixed Chorus
ln compliance with the demand for high school choruses, a varied program of
musical instruction entered the curricula of the Farrell Senior High School as an
elective group of studies. Under the capable guidance of Miss Helena Spisak the
mixed chorus, the girls' chorus, and the boys' chorus became organizations which
actively and successfully developed musical talent.
Participating in many school programs and ceremonies, the largest of these
organizations, the mixed chorus, achieved initial and immediate recognition from
As a fitting climax to a year's earnest endeavor, the entire representative body
of the choral groups presented a vocal concert on April 18, 1940, in the auditorium-
gymnasium of the high school. This display of trained talent proved that these
musical groups merited the praise and the applause that they received upon this

LE CERCLE FRANCAIS
Le Cercle Francais, the only academic organization in our school, held its regular
meeting every Thursday morning in the Visual Education Room or in the Music
Room. The aim of the Cercle is to familiarize the students with French life, art,
history and literature, Therefore, several meetings were devoted to the idea of
developing an appreciation of French history, art and literature, by pictorial pro-
grams referring to the glorious Gathedrales of Notre Dame, Chartres and Rheims,
the beautiful Palace of Fontainebleau, the historic Palace of Versailles and scenes
of Paris and the Cote d'Azur.
The governmental system of the club, based upon the French parliamentary
system proved very interesting and instructive. All officers were elected or appointed
according to the laws of France. The Parliament, realizing the power of their "Vote
of Confidence," kept a judicious check upon the Cabinet which determined the
policy of the club.
The success of the organization has been due to the following members: le
president, Roger Bousigesg le president honoraire, Mademoiselle Margaret Rouxg le
premier ininistre, James Farmartinog le ministre des seances, Kolma. Greenstoney le
ministre des programmes, Jacqueline Gatetg le ministre des affaires, Ellen Podolskyg
le ministre des sports, Edward Frank: le ministre des affaires, Martha Frantz: le
ministre de la musique, Harriet Polanging le ministre des chansons, Jean Anne Shell-
Among the social events which proved to be very popular were the Box Social,
the Leap Year Frolic, and a Bon Voyage party for the seniors of the group. In
addition to the social activities, the club will participate in the intramural basketball
tournament in which they again hope to win a trophy. The Girls' Team won the
trophy last year.
The members of the club are as pictured:

United service, fellowship and self-improvement are the ideals of the Tri-Hi-Y
Club. Through the combined efforts of Mrs. Mary Jones, advisor: Florence Wolo-
shyn, presidentg Doris Rager, vice president, Joan Sarchett, secretaryp and Esther
Wachter, treasurerg this organization has been one of active service.
The forty girls who compose the Tri-Hi-Y were chosen for their character, lead-
ership, scholarship, cooperation, and reliability. During the school year, they spon-
sored campaigns: namely: "Good English Week", "Leap Year Week", "Clean Up
Week", and others. They ushered at school occasions, acted as aids for the Dedi-
cation Day ceremonies, sold candy during lunch hours, and contributed to charitable
organizations in the community. In an effort to make the pep meetings more in-
teresting, they presented the short sketch, "Footballs and Powder Puffs", and a
mock Major Bowes Program.
Designated as a service club for the benefit of the student body, the Tri-Hi-YA
is 11 representative group worthy of commendation for its successful existence.

Under the direction of Mr. Ralph Dresch, a group of aspiring Juniors and Seniors
organized the Hi-Y Club of Farrell High School in September, 1936. To create,
maintain, and extend throughout the school and the community high standards of
Christian character is the oath that all members take when they are initiated into
the club. Each member strives to uphold this purpose. The four planks upon which
the programs arc based are "Clean Speech, Clean Sports, Clean Living, and Clean
This year, the members have strivcn to fulfill the purpose and program success-
fully as the former members have done. They have rendered many services to the
school and have participated in many school activities, namely: ushering at the dedi-
cation of our new school and at all school events in the gymnasium, selling programs
at football games, taking and selling tickets at all athletic events, and honoring the
football, the basketball, and the wresting squads at club banquets.
The officers of the Hi-Y are Mr. Ralph Dresch, advisor, James Munro, president,
Thomas Latsko, vice president, Howard Wharton, secretary, and Harry Vermeire,

THE NIGHT RIDER
Freedom of the press! Bold-faced headlines, scoops,
interviews, columns, features, and questionnaires proclaim
the doings and the achievements of the Farrell Senior High
School and its associates!
Now in its third year of unfailing success, the Night
Rider has become a dominant institution in the workings of
our democratic school system. Not only from the stand-
point of a publication, but also as a service foundation, this
"informer" has in addition to its journalistic activities,
sponsored tea dances, annually donated a Christmas tree,
presented programs, forwarded an intramural basketball
team, conducted varied contests, and participated in the
Dedication Day ceremonies of November 30, 1939.
Acting as hosts to county journalists, amateurs and
professionals, members on the staff of the Night Rider
successfully planned and executed a semi-annual press con-
vention on January 27 of this year. Following the assem-
blage of the guests in the auditorium-gymnasium, Mr. Mel-
vin Blair and Mr. R. S. Lyman spoke to the aspiring journ-
alists on subjects pertinent to high school publications. The
meeting was then thrown open to forum discussion on the
problems confronting the successful editing of a high school
newspaper. After the meeting was adjourned, lunch was
served, and the convention came to a successful close.
Previous to this year, administrative authorities had
prohibited any competitive advertising in this school pub-
lication. This year, however, the restriction has been re-
moved and all merchants and business men may solicit sub-
scriptions to advertise in the paper. It is through this
medium that many students have received not only literary
training, but also training in commercial tactics and con-
As the finale to a successful year, all journalists, home
room managers, delivery boys, advertisers, solicito1's, ad-
visors, and those in any way connected with the "Night
Rider" were enjoyably entertained at a social gathering in
the music room on May 9.
From its enthusiastic beginning in 1938, the "Night
Rider" has been capably supervised by Mrs. I-larry G.
Pirrung, whose efforts have been the driving force of its
journalistic achievements. Likewise, Misses Anne and Olga
Gojdics, who have acted as assistant advisors, have promoted
the success of this institution.
The "Night Rider" is Farrell High School's messenger
of good will because it maintains and upholds the ethics
and policies of good journalism.
