MR. VAUGHN E. WAGNER
Mr. Vaughn Wagner, who passed away July 23, 1945, will always live in the memories of those who were inspired by his personality and character. As a teacher and counselor, he knew that: “Education is a painful, continual, and difficult work, to be done by kindness, by watching, by warning, by precept, and by praise, but above all, by example.” As a man, he exemplified these virtues: kindness, patience and understanding, which his memory continues to inspire us to practice.CONTENTS

37History of the Class of 1946
Since the beginning’ of our freshman year in September, 1942, we have looked forward to graduation. Now it has arrived and we must go into the world to continue down life’s road. Let us look back to memories of our four years in high) school. These memories will be in our hearts for years to come.
On December 7, 1941, an event occurred that was to be of grave importance in our lives. It was the bombing of Pearl Harbor. America was at war! We were eighth graders at that time. By the time we were beginning our freshman year, the war had come closer and closer. War Bonds and salvage drives became familiar events to us. Brothers, sisters, and friends were leaving for war. We knew that the war was to have great significance in the shaping of our futures. Despite the problems of war, we had fun in our freshman year. We still remember the Victory Dance, radio station JRHS, and the Freshman Prom. Upon graduation, we became the last class to graduate from junior high school in the ninth grade.
Under the shadow of war, we entered the senior high school as be-wildered and confused sophomores. There were new courses, new teachers, and new regulations, but we soon were in the swing of things. Going to pep meetings w as an exciting new experience. An important event of the year was the Mid-Western District Chorus, held at Farrell High School, with Noble Cain as guest conductor. Under the direction of Mr. Lewis Sarcinella, class advisor, we elected the following officers: Gerald Pratt, president; Raymond Bechtold, vice president; and Virginia Monteson, secretary.
Our junior year was a successful one. With Miss Julia Wallace as class advisor, we elected Anthlony LaCamera, president; Raymond Bechtold, vice president; and Lois Davis, secretary. Our social events included the Harvest Dance, the gym exhibition, and the dances after basketball games. Near the end of the year, we worked hard to make the Junior-Senior Prom an event that the seniors would remember a long time. It was in May, 1945, in our junior year, that we received the news of the surrender of Germany. Although overjoyed at this, we were mindful of the boys still fighting in the Pacific and of another war yet to be won.
At last, our senior year arrived. The signing of the unconditional surrender by Japan in August, 1945, had made our dreams of peace come true. As Seniors, wo were rushed into a whirlpool of activities. Under the guidance of Miss Esther Zentz, our class advisor, we had photographs taken, selected invitations and calling cards, sold Reflectors, and held a number of social events, one of which was the Junior-Senior Harvest Dance at which Edith Mercurio reigned as Queen. We reelected the officers who had done such a good job in our junior year. All too soon, our Senior year was coming to a close. The Junior-Senior Prom and Class Day activities will be remembered for a long time. At our Farewell Assembly, we felt deeply the realization that we were leaving our school. In traditional Caps and Gowns, we attended Vesper services on May 19, 1946, and Commencement exercises on May 21, 1946. We graduated in the first peacetime spring in four years. The world was still unsteady from the terrible years of war. With the knowledge that the youth of America would be needed to help steady it, the Class of 1946 went forth to serve their country in any and all ways they could for the ideal of peace on earth, good will to men.

SEPTEMBER 7 ERIE ACADEMY 7-0
Playing a brilliant offensive game, the Farrell High Night Riders opened the 1945 season against Erie Academy on the opposite end of a 7-0 score. It was a hard fought contest with the home team registering nine first downs to the visitor’s three. Twice in the first half, the Night Riders were deep in Academy territory only to lose the ball on mis-cues and fumbles.

In a series of plays they were down on the visitor’s twenty yard line only to have their drive halted there.
SEPTEMBER 14 ELLWOOD CITY 6-0
Encountering their first WPIAL game of the 1945 season, the Farrell High Night Riders were edged out in a bitterly-fought contest with Ellwood City by the score of 6-0.

SEPTEMBER 28 ERIE STRONG VINCENT 0-26
Although the turf was slippery from a heavy afternoon rain, the Night Riders found themselves able to take advantage of all the breaks and recorded their second victory of the season. Led by Captain Bill Gargano, who intercepted an aerial in the first minute of the second half and scampered down the sidelines for a sixty yard jaunt and the second touchdown of the game, the Night Riders rode to an easy victory. The preceeding play proved to be the most thrilling of the contest. Three additional scores came as a result of plunges by Pedas, Fratilla, and Hailstock. Ballish corf-verted two pacements to heighten the score to 26-0, at which point the game ended. The Night Riders used a combination of fake and keep spinners and short aerials to provide the visitors with trouble throughout the clash. The Erie Strong Vincent team displayed fine spirit, but their efforts were not enough to overcome the power of the Farrell Club. The final score was 26-0.The 1945 Football Season
When the Farrell Night Riders invaded Taggert Stadium, they found before them a powerful Red Hurricane team. Unleashing a pair of speedy backs, the Ne Ca Hi gridders exhibited a brilliant running attack and had the Farrell boys with their backs to the wall many times during the game. Refusing to be outdone, the Night Riders were determined to chalk up a score. When the Daymen were deep in Ne Ca territory, Phillips faded back and heaved an aerial to Pedas who avoided a would be tackier and scored standing up. Captain Gargano converted by placement to end Farrell’s csoring. New Castle scored on three occasions by a series of running plays that netted them nineteen points. The clash ended with the Night Riders on the short end of a 19-7 count.
OCTOBER 20 CAMPBELL MEMORIAL 7-7
Outplaying a heavily favored Campbell Memorial team, the Farrell Night Riders battled to a 7-7 tie in a bruising battle. The high-light of the contest was a flat pass from Maurice Phillips to Captain Bill Gargano on Campbell’s 49 yard line from which point he raced across for a touchdown. This same lad kicked the goal for the extra point. Farrell kicked off to Campbell and on the first scrimmage play, they scored and converted to knot the score. Both clubs had numerous scoring opportunities but lacked the initiative to carry the pigskin over the white stripe. The Night Riders rated as underdogs refused to be out-classed and came out on the gridiron playing as they never played before. Line play was outstanding on the home team with the Daymen outcharging and outstanding a heavier Memorial line.
On a cold, brisk October evening, a fast moving Rochester team outplayed and outclassed a surprised Farrell team. The visiting Rams scored early in the game and remained in the lead throughout the game. Farrell received the ball after nn exchange of kicks in the second canto to start their drive toward the goal. Pedas climaxed the drive by streaking off the right side of the line on a fake reverse for 34 yards and a touchdown. Scoring for the Night Riders was at an end, but the powerful Rams continued to score until the final whistle. The Night Riders found themselves behind by the score of 32-6. Fratila, njured in the previous game, was a surprise starter but had to be removed after a few minutes of play because of injuries. Unable to gain much yardage on the turf, the Night Riders took to the air but to no avail.
65The 1945 Football Season
Demonstrating their superiority in every phase of the game, the Farrell High Night Riders scored in every quarter to down the Braddock eleven by the score of 39-0. Relying on hard, straight driving, the Night Riders repeatedly penetrated into Braddock’s territory. Hailstock, the speedy freshman, was particularly impressive with his fast breaks, accounting for two of the Night Riders tallies on long runs. Nicastro, Phillips, Pedas, and Captain Gargano each scored a touchdown to add their contribution to an overwhelming victory. Ondich converted once, with the educated foot of Gargano splitting the uprights twice to add to the scoring. Although they were outscored, the Braddock club succeeded in registering ten first downs to the victor’s eight. The Night Riders were on the verge of scoring again in the last few minutes of the game when James broke loose and galloped down the sidelines on a 49 yard jaunt only to step out of the bounds on the two yard stripe. At this point, the game ended.
Played before a capacity crowd of 8,000 spectators, the annual grid classic of Shenango Valley, between the schools of Sharon and Farrell, was a clean, hard fought, and rugged game. For many of the boys, it was their last year in football, so it was natural that they tried to make it the best game. Truly it was, for one could not see greater sportsmanship shown by any other club then these two teams showed toward each other. Farrell had the honor of scoring the first marker of the clash. It came after Sharon had kicked to Fratilla who returned it to the 34. Pedas picked up two yards, but on the following play, Phillips realed off a 49 yard sprint to place Farrell in scoring position. After a few bucks at the line, Captain Bill Gargano powered his way over the goal to account for Farrell’s score. The conversion attempt was low. Sharon tied the game midway in the third quarter and also failed to convert.
From this time on, the game was a see-saw affair with both teams kicking to each
other and playing for breaks. Thus, we close the pages on the 1945 football season
with both teams concluding their schedule with this game. The final score of this
well played game was 6-6.

COACH CHARLES SNYDER
Exhibiting a fighting spirit throughout the entire season despite the fact that they were on the latter end of the winning column, the Farrell High Reserves proved to their coaches that they were capable of becoming future varsity grid men. Coaches Charles Snyder and Felix Bonadio should be commended on their fine work of developing the boys. Competition was keen at all posts because the participants were gridiron boys who refused to let up and therefore their spirit remained in high gear. From the number of candidates who reported for training we can take heed of our future in the field of sports.

In his sophomore year, George won the state championship in the 95 pound class and Howdy Prizant wen in the 112 pount class for the state title. Again the following year, George, already feared to be a likely title holder, lived up to thia fashion and gained recognition as state champ in the 103 pound class while Jtofrro Bralich won in the 165 division to give the locals their share in state honors. Tlhisi year, George won the 112 pound title and Mouganis gained the title in the 143 pound class. Co-captain George Lewis has “rung up” thirty-six consecutive victories during his high school career of wrestling. The winners of the state tournament received gold medals. It was held at Pennsylvania State College on March 15-16.

On August 25, 1938, under the direction of Mrs. Virginia Jamison Armstrong, the mothers of the band members formed the Band Mothers organization to aid the Farrell High School Band and the Music Department. The first officers were Mrs. Julius Schermer, president; Mrs. John Maxwell, vice president; Mrs. Earl Linder, secretary; and Mrs. Benjamin Williams, treasurer.
To purchase uniforms for the drum majorettes was the first project of the Band Mothers. Under the direction of Mrs. Armstrong, Farrell High School was the first school to introduce majorettes in the county, and the first majorettes were Doris Rager, Audrey Shellenberger, Stella Mason, and Dolores Szabo.
The Band Mothers also sponsored the annual, now traditional, Christmas party for the music students. In 1940, under the supervision of Mrs. Edward Thomas, the mothers presented a Tom Thumb Wedding, which included the grade and the high school music students. Each year, the mothers award each graduating senior with eight semesters of music a jacket, but during the war, when jackets could not be bought, they presented each senior with s five dollar award.
MR. WILLIAM BLOUGH
MR. THEODORE KARHAN
When the membership was opened to the mothers of the orchestra, the band, and the chorus members, the organization under Mrs. Armstrong, its founder, changed its name to the Farrell Music Guild. The first meeting was held November 3, 1941, with thirty members present.
Some of the outstanding w’ork done by the guild was the housing for the State Band, the District Chorus, and the District Band w’hen they met in Farrell High School. While the visitors were here, the guild provided lunches, dinners, and entertainmnets for the guests. This year, they sponsored a George Washington Dance on February 22, 1946, when Benny Jones and his orchestra furnished the music.
The present officers are Mrs. Louis Minkoff, president; Mrs. Bert Moss, vice president; Mrs. Chester Hogue, secretary, and Mrs. Claire McGhee, treasurer.
Mrs. Armstrong directed and organized Farrell High School’s first band. Mr. James Dunlop is head of the Music Department, Mr. William Blough is director of the choral music, and Mr. Theodore Karhan is the conductor of the Farrell High School Orchestra.

In the fall, the members of the club joined The International Students Society. The objectives of this group are to develop international friendships and fluency in the written language through the exchange of letters with young people of France. Much interest and many pleasant hours have been devoted to this project, “Speak French whenever and wherever possible” became the slogan of the club. In order to stress the importance of speaking French, the club started a fund for the purchase of French records for class use.
The outstanding social functions were the “hoirees” held by the combined clubs of Sharpsville, Sharon, and Farrell High Schools.
The season ended in a glorious riot of color when the French club’s red, white and blue jackets appeared in the month of May.Hi-Y
Under the direction of Mr. Ralph E. Dr each, the Ili-Y members strive to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and the community high standards of Christian character.
Pledged and guided by the four planks: clean speech, clean sports, clean living
and clean scholarship, the Hi-Y members have attained a highly reputable name for their excellent work in selling programs, and ushering at the games. They also have sponsored dinners for the athletes of the school. They have participated in the community war and post war drives. They have helped to make the recent clothing drive a success.
The members of the Hi-Y are chosen for the club upon recommendation of the faculty who judge their personalities, their character, and their scholastic attainments during their school career. To the best of their abilities, the members have completed every assignment given to them.

Membership requirements for the Tri-Hi-Y are election by the club members, a scholastic standing of an average or better than average grade, and a recommendation from the faculty.
To create, maintain and extend throughout the school and the community high standards of Christian character is the purpose of the club, while its slogan is “Pure Thoughts, Pure Words, and Pure Actions.” The colors of the Tri-Hi-Y are red, white and blue which express sacrifice, purity, and loyalty. The aims are self-improvement, Christian fellowship, and united service.
Under the direction of Mrs. Mary T. Jones, the club advisor, and the officers, the members have participated in many school and civic activities.
Under the leadership of Mrs. Emily Breckenridge, the members of the Junior Tri-Hi-Y have held many interesting and educational meetings in which group discussions of girls' problems such as home relationships and personal habits proved worthwhile. Companionship and good sportsmanship were also important items of the Junior Tri-Hi-Y meetings.
The requirements for membership in the club, purpose, aims, and colors are the same as those of the Senior Tri-Hi-Y club. The junior members have also participated in the school and the civic activities.

Advisor ...Latin Club
The Latin Club, the largest organization in the school, composed of all students enrolled in Latin, is an extra-curricular activity, through the function of which its members can understand better the practical and cultural value of Latin, can interest their fellow students therein, and can gain a more thorough knowledge of Roman life, customs and language. The Latin Club furnishes an opportunity for the pleasure-able learning of much about the Romans and their civilization for which there is not sufficient time in class. It helps in the establishing of friendly relations between student and teacher, and between student and student. It gives an outlet to the dramatic instinct, develops leadership and responsibility, and encourages originality on the part of the student. It opens up to him a new world of books about the Romans and the Greeks. It develops in him an appreciation of ancient art and literature. In short, the Latin Club can give the student such a friendly interest in the classics in general, that he will be eager to go on with them in college and will look upon them with respect and admiration in his future life.
The official organ of the Latin Club, “Pergamus,” a newspaper edited by the students of the Latin Classes is in its second year of publication. “Pergamus” meaning “Let us Advance”, is indicative of the spirit of the Latin Club.
The Latin Club has a minimum of four meetings a year, of which one is the annual dinner dance in May. This colorful spring festival brings to a close the activities of the Club for the year.

To provide a social atmosphere in which students may use their knowledge of Spanish phrases and customs is the main purpose of El Circulo Espanol under the direction of Miss Mary Brown. A passing grade in Spanish is the only requirement for membership.
During the meetings which are held at regular intervals, the members hear speakers tell of Mexico or South America, see Spanish movies, play games, sing and dance, or hold fiestas in traditional Spanish style. They therefore have a chance to see Spanish customs and traditions become a reality.
Since all students of the Spanish I and II classes are members of El Circulo Espanol, it is one of the largest organizations in the school. All Spanish students therefore benefit greatly by learning the fascinating drama of Spanish customs in a social atmosphere.

HOME ROOM MANAGERS
Home room Night Rider managers, under the supervision of Miss Olga Gojdics, sell the school newspaper to the students in their respective home rooms, keep the financial records for their groups and report their totals to their advisor. They also keep the mailing lists up-to-date. Indirectly each manager learns to handle money and to keep records.
In addition to the home room managers, the Night Rider advisor selects two students to solicit advertisements from the business firms for the Night Rider.
THE EDITORIAL STAFF
The twofold purpose of The Night Rider is to provide publicity for the school and to give students an excellent educational laboratory in which they may learn the background of newspaper technique. All interested students with writing ability may become a reporter on the newspaper staff, but editorial positions are filled only by members of the Journalism class taught by Miss Mary Brown, advisor of The Night Rider Staff.The 1946 Reflector Staff
