NAUGLE That the functions of the Board of Education which aids in directing the school system may be more fully real' ized and widely appreciated, the data concerning the en- rollment, faculty, and property are included to acquaint the reader with this section. A teaching and supervising staff of thirty-one members this year is instructing 763 students in a school plant evaluated at nearly half a million dollars. Including the seventh and eighth grades, Ferndale High School has an active enrollment of 447 students with eighteen full time faculty members. The enrollment of the grade school is 316 with twelve members of the faculty. The combined enrollment of the high school and grade school is at present 763 students. Ferndale employs a school nurse, an office secretary, and two maintenance superintendents. With the construction of a new high school building, modern in the latest detail, Ferndale can be justly proud of its school system. Paul K. Branthoover C. Naugle ward Bell Hai ry E, Jeroy Frfink W, Levergood MR. FRAN K lx SUPERVISING PRINCIPAL PROGRESS IN LEISURE Leisure is now available. There are free hours now and likely to be in the future. Present day modes of living have produced many free hours when an individual really lives with himself and his enthusiasms, that time when family life may be enjoyed, and each member of the family may choose to be a stu- dent, philosopher, playfellow, or scientist. Society has progressed in over-coming the effects caused by the advent of the various mechanical aids used in the home today. With these new mechanical devices costing less, older home-making activities which formerly made members of the family dependent on each other having been pushed aside, family leisure has been created. Children, older youth and parents have been pushing forward in this new field, called leisure. In their play, children are now sharing a sense of achievement, older youth and adults are attracted to a variety of interests. Many are happy to follow that leisure model of a friend, some follow a popular patterng others use that type of recreation for which they pay. Recrea- tions that draw the family together today in crowded houses and tenement flats are limited, yet thousands of games and game books are sold. The automobile has also been an important fac- tor in leisure progress. Family jaunts are certain- ly increasing in number for picnic places, beaches, camps, and tourist recreational estab- lishments are crowded with family groups, especially on holidays. The school has accepted the challenge to keep in step with progress in leisure. The present program of sports, citizenship training, and philosophy offered in the school gives testimony to its awareness. Even the grade school so presents its art in music, color, and sports that these interests live in the future when they be- come wage earners. The secondary schools and colleges are constantly faced with requests for more of 'these activities. Students desire definite club participation, sports, dancing, and whole- some social activities. The school today also shows a definite trend toward less highly organ- ized sports. There is more training of larger athletic groups for leisure enjoyments that will continue after the completion of the schoolls course. Politics and participation in government af- fairs form leisure activities for many citizens. Many present experiences in school are present- ed purposely to lead to experiences after school. Social science courses should definitely prepare students to be intelligent citizens. The church has not been asleep. She has also aided in this progress to use leisure time in a beneficial way. Recreational specialists are found on governing bodies, and recreational halls are increasing in size and numbers. Vice is not in the competitive games but it is the in- jurious climax of the games as perceived by a group of worldly individuals. Church camps show a gain in quality and popularity and com- munity problems becorne live subjects for group discussions. Many youth are taking fast hold of mid-week and Sunday meetings in the church. The parish house, community house, Y. W. C. A , and Y. M. C. A. are now being used more freely. Major responsibility for the continuance of this leisure progress therefore rests upon the home, the school, the church, and the community recreational organization, if one exists. Leisure must remain a challenge to each. Then, as in utopia, each individual in our social order will possess a mental health that will guarantee him a feeling of self-esteem and of the worthwhile- ness of life, even though the wage-earning oc- cupation should seem heartless, mechanical, and slave-like.

Par- ticipating in the various school activities we soon began to take our place in this new life, striving for the same end as the others before us had done. The one hundred twenty-four pupils were divided into two groups headed by Misses Stat- ler, Lichtenfels, and Mr. English. Dean Blue. Ruth Brant, Jacob Schnegg, and Marian Train- mer represented the class in the Student Council. During our second year our class advisers were Misses Fleming, Myton, and Hemmons. The latter was succeeded later by Miss Neidlin- ger. Our activities were somewhat hindred dur- ing the second semester by a change to half-day school as a result of an unexpected catastrophe when the grade school burned. It was necessary to discontinue many of the school activities JOHN BAILEY ERNEST SHULL .. JANET WARING since the grade school occupied the building in the afternoons. Gradually, the days went by, until we were again at the close of another school year. Returning from vacation, the students be- came the upperclassmen-Juniors. Our class ad- visers were Miss Grace Hetrick and Messrs. Moorehead and Townsend. The class was con- tinuously active throughout the year. With Mr. Moorehead's help. the Juniors selected a class ring which was received in time to be Christmas presents. The candy club was organized to help raise the sufficient funds for the Junior-Senior reception which was held at the Masonic Temple. Regretfully. we realized that this. our Senior year, was the last lap of our long journey. As Seniors we had no upper classmen to uphold. but we. ourselves, were now the example for .M. i First Row-J. Hailey, IJ. lklne, J. fi2llX, 12, Hrcndlinuvr. U. lvilwert. XY. Vnmliergrvr. R, XY1'ight.

One of the outstand- ing features of the years was the Senior Play, '4Once There Was a Princessfi presented by the class on November 17 and 18. On January 22, 1939 the regular whole day session of classes was resumed. After approxi- mately two years, clubs and assembly programs were again continued. Practically every Senior took advantage of the opportunity to join a club and become an active contributor to its success. 1n extra-curricular activities, the Seniors were leaders. As members of the varous organi- zations the students not only were contributors but were also the recipients of worthy benefits and outcomes. The orchestra, band. chorus, Reflector, Courier, Forensic League and operetta provided an opportunity for the members of the class to take an active part in the affairs of these organizations. The boys were especially active in athletics. The success of the various teams was in part due to the Senior boys who faithfully and loyally gave their best to carry the name of Ferndale onward. Many Seniors participated in the operetta, uThe Sunbonnet Girlf' given in the auditorium on March 16 and 17. Then came the Junior- Senior reception on May 20 at the Masonic Temple. Gradually our steps were lessening till only three main events remained. On Sunday, lVlay 21, Baccalauerate service was held in the Moxham Evangelical Church. On Class Day, May 19, the Seniors bequeathed their abilities and personalities to the Juniors. One more step was left, graduation. We severed finally the last connection with our high school life. As Seniors, we are thankful for the four profitable years spent at Ferndale and grateful for the privileges and activities we enjoyed. The friendships and associations which we have ac- quired during our brief time in school We hope to continue. We hate to realize that as a group we are leaving behind all our associations to- gether, the dances, outings, assemblies, meetings, and activities actually end but the memory of these will still live on.

Vice President .,,, Secretary ......, . What was labeled a group of inexperienced and young Freshmen two years ago has crystal- ized into the Junior Class of 1938-39. The ideals of those former days took real root last year as the present Juniors became Sophomores and thus real bidders for the place they now hold. Entering the ranks of the upper classmen has been another wholesome experience for them. and the activities of the class this term have shown that the Juniors will inevitably become creditable graduation material next year. In September the class organized and chose a ring committee consisting of 'Virginia Coleman, Richard Roberts, Betty Spangler, together with the class officers. This committee selected desir- ,. ARCHIE BRUCE . , .. ..,. ROBERT WALSH ELIZABETH KOVACH able rings from which the class made its choice. The first order arrived in time to be Christmas presents for many of the students. The Juniors have been outstanding in the numerous school activities. With its wealth of personality the class has dominated and con- tributed much in its participation in the many social affairs and school organizations. Athletics has always been one of the leading activities of the class. Many of the boys and girls took part in the interclass basketball and volleyball leagues. Others who possessed more ability devoted their time toward the varsity sports and earned positions on the football and basketball squads. Fh-st Row-J. Hershberger, C. Querry, XV. Plachy, D. Evans.

Not only have many increased their own social experience through the member associations, but they have definitely contributed something worth-while. Of the various organizations, the Juniors can be found as active members of the orchestra, the band, the glee clubs, Hi-Y, Girl Reserves, Photo- graphy Club, Dramatic Club, Knitting Club, Art Club, Aviation Club, Know Your City Club and others. Several students have helped im- mensely in building the school publications, the Reflector and the Courierg and in bringing honor and outstanding credit to Ferndale through their activities in the Forensic League. After Christmas vacation, school was re- sumed on the full-day session. This enabled the students to take a greater advantage of the school activities. Following the Senior party in the new gymnasium, the Juniors were per- mitted to hold a similar affair. A large number of the class shared an enjoyable time together. Music was provided by the uSwing Beesw for those who danced, and for those who didnit care to dance various games were provided for them to play. To top the evening off, the class enjoyed an old fashioned barn dance with Jack Allison calling the figures. The high-spot of the year was the annual Junior-Senior banquet and dance, in which the Seniors are the guest of the Junior class. This year the reception proved to be one of the most successful events of the year. ln order to meet the expenses of the function, the students sold wax paper and candy. The class of 1940 already is looking forward to the time when they will be Seniors. Their last school year will be an additional challenge for them to carry on their activity already begun.

Vice President .. Secretary .. . .. One hundred and six students entered the Sophomore class at Ferndale last fall. The greater part of these were students from the neighboring townships and boroughs. There have been very few dropped from last year's Fresh- man class. The tenth-year class has participated and cooperated in nearly all the activities of the school. They have shown their loyalty to their Alma Mater in football, basketball, and various other activities. Of the many programs provided by the school, the Sophomore boys seemed more in- . . WILLIAM BRUCE .. . BETTY GRIFFITH .. JACK HUFMAN terested in athletics than in anything else. Some were engaged in varsity football and many more were playing junior-varsity in preparation for their last years in school. Of this same group a number of boys helped to make the basketball season more successful through their continuous and faithful aid. ln the future years Ferndale should be well represented in varsity sports by the Sophomore class. Girls also were very active in sports, many sharing in the interclass basketball and volley- ball leagues. The others, who were not engaged in athletics of the strenuous type, were always in the bleachers cheering for their school. First Row-XV. Crow, D. Hummel, J. itvclmk, C. Ziinnicrinun. J. Patch. R.

A number joined the glee clubs which did much in the promotion of the Operetta, 4'The Sunbonnet Girlf' Approximately one-third of the cast and chorus were sophomores. Quite a few participated in the band and orchestra and they pushed the progress of these organizations to a new high. Students who were not inclined to the activities mentioned above helped to make the Reflector, the Courier and the Forensic League a greater success. Clubs were resumed again this year and the Sophomores took advantage of the numerous fields provided by the departments of the school. Many become active members in the various organizations. In social activities, the Sophomore class was right on top. The Hi-Y and Girl Reserves held a skating party which brought together prac- tically three-fourths of the high school. The Seniors held a party which was attended by all the high school classes and the Sophomores were highly represented. Although they were engaged in many pro- grams, the tenth year students never failed to he represented on the A-B list. There was an ave- rage of fifteen on the list and many new ones appeared on each six weeks period during the year. Sophomores only took a minor part in school affairs at the beginning of the year. They gradually adapted themselves and have begun to take a lead in things. The Sophomores look forward to next year when they can have more opportunity to help their Alma Mater. They look expectantly toward the Prom and for the Class Rings Which, of many other things, will make them full-fledged upper-classmen. l l l l l First Row--R. Sivits, M. Branthoover, D.

Secretary-Treasurer . The Freshmen class has an enrollment of ninety-two students which makes it one of the largest classes of the high school. Composed of students from Ferndale and the neighboring boroughs, an active, young group of boys and girls have definitely become a part of the school. Although the class doesnft have the oppor- tunity to sponsor any social activities, neverthe- less they enter into the affairs provided by other groups for the enjoyment of the entire school. Some of the most interesting functions the class took a part in were the different skating parties sponsored by the local Hi-Y Club. lVIany stu- dents of the class who have not actively become , WALTER DAVIS JOHN DAVIS ROBERT FAY associated with the school organizations have found much enjoyment in attending these affairs. As yet, the younger students of the class havenit actively participated in the social activities of the school. The group has definitely made a worthy contribution to the athletic program at Ferndale. Several have faithfully and continuously given their talents and efforts in helping to strengthen the various athletic teams. It is usually the in- experienced boys from the lower grades who provide the scrub material for the varsity to practice against. To those athletes of our class who are just beginning their athletic careers we extend our sincere wishes for success. In both First ll"w-T- lil'l1f'tH Iv. Imyt-1-. lv. 4'cslovnil'. M. Czcvnl-, W.

The junior varsity squads are composed almost entirely of Freshmen and grade school players who soon will be the varsity to represent the 'GBlack and Goldf' A number have taken the advantage of get- ting into the swing of things by joining the dif- ferent organizations of the school. The operetta, given by the members of the Boy's Chorus and the Girls, Clee Club, provided several of the class an opportunity to perform before an audience. The band is one of the largest groups in which the Freshmen take an active position. Others find outlets for their individual talents and abilities in the orchestra, the publication staffs, the Hi-Y and Girl Reserves, the Art Club, the Knitting Club, the Aviation-Science Club, the Know Your City Club, the Athletic Clubs, and the dramatic Club. The associations which the students gain bv belonging to a club, and the social adjustments that each makes is worthy of any personis time. Every club provides an informal opportunity for members from the various clubs to mingle and associate with each other. Not only are new friendships made, but each student has the privilege of contributing his share to the success of the club. Several members have continuously repre- sented the class on the school honor roll for the achievement of A-B grades. With such a beginning the class should be outstanding in scholarship as well as in other achievements. With higher aspirations and determined am- bitions, the Freshmen are looking forward to the time when they will be Sophomores. With a year of experience behind them they will en- deavor to strengthen the foundation which they already have well established. First Royv-S, M01-Iugh, M, Mgors, V, Rummel, P. Mitchell. O.

With the completion of a new high school building, modern in every respect, our aims were to feature progress in education at Ferndale, and to make the Reflector as beautiful and artistic an annual as our finances would permit. Lofty aims! . . . but if we have achieved them we consider our venture successful. Using progress as our theme we have tried to present an annual in keeping with the growth and advancement made at Ferndale. We have attempted something new in an art theme, to picture progress from the early periods of time to the present. To carry out our motive, a flag design is embodied into the art work as a symbol of the continuous advancement made through time. Murals are used on the division pages to picture the onward march in progress. With a gold cover, overwashed with black, the school colors have been used as a remembrance of the days spent in school at Ferndale. Selecting white coated paper, soot-black ink and red as the second color we have tried to introduce a dis- tinctly modern touch. Even our type has been selected after a consideration of its beauty and distinctiveness. Finally, we have tried to present something new. The staff wishes to express a word of thanks to Paul Kunkle for advice and aid in editorial problems, to George Townsend. financial ad- visor, to Margaret Fleming for assistance in artistic manners, to Grant Custer for his feature photography and the use of equipment, to Byron Kuhs for editorial assistance, and to all those who had a part in building the annual.

Announcements, sport events, greetings, jokes and sympathies were the subjects usually received. A group of students from the Courier staff wrote the various articles each morning and typed copies to be posted for the school. The most important publication of the staff is the uRig Couriern which is published at various times during the term. The first issue of the year was edited by Mary Ann Hassen- plug. Consisting of ten attractively arranged pages, the paper was fashioned after the maga- PEARL LITCHENFELS SARA RHOADES Zine style. This type of publication was received very popularly among the students and was quite successful. The magazine contains various items of school news, editorials, jokes. reports. and coming events. The Christmas edition, larger and more at- tractive, was again in charge of Mary Ann Has- senplug. Ernest Shull edited the Easter number which also was well received by the students. With the cooperation of the editors. the staff advisers, and many others who contributed their time and effort a final Senior issue was publish- ed as a climax to the fine work of the year.

Primarily, the group was or- ganized from students in the Chemistry and Physics classes, however, other students availed themselves of the opportunity to belong to such a club. Within the unlimited field of photography on which the club concentrated its thoughts, the activities varied in an interesting manner. Discussions, contests, lectures, and a uCandid Dayw were a few of the activities carried out by the group. In the discussions, the members .. .

The club promoted a picture contest in order to encourage and instruct the students to catch interesting and alive shots. The Eastman Kodak Company lectures were another outstanding part on the club program for the year. Many dem- onstrations in developing and printing were given to the group by Mr. Custer. Through the efforts of the club adviser the students profited immensely in the knowledge which each gained. The yearly program proved a very successful one for the club. First Row-L. Ripple, L.

The Hi-Y is an organization whose goal is to promote clean sportsmanship, clean living and clean scholarship. This club is not merely a social group, but it is a club to better the moral and physical welfare of youth. Religious as Well as social programs are sponsored during the term. The yearly program included an intensive study outline, a Father and Son Banquet, hikes. CHARLIE BARNES ,, VAN BAILEY ROBERT NAUGLE .

Most notable of the yearls activities was the promotion of a finger printing project, intro- duction of school skating parties, sponsoring of school dances, and a horse-shoe pitching contest. The club membership is larger than in pre- vious years. making it possible to aid a greater proportion of the student body.

The purpose of the Girl Reserves is stated in the pledge HI will do my best to honor God, my country and my community, to help other girls and to be in all ways a loyal and true member of the Girl Reservesf, During the year many new ideas were worked out which stimulated and aroused more interest in the club. All of the activities were based on the code of the Girl Reserves. The program in- cluded many different features such as discussion groups, swimming, hikes, parties, and talent performances. From the number of girls who join the club it is evident that it is one of the most popular organizations. The program provides a variety JANET WARING RUTH MILLER PEGGY BUCK BERNICE WRIGHT MARGARET FLEMING MARTHA MYTON of activities so that every girl in some way can find some type of enjoyment and recreation. Bernice Wright was chosen to represent the club at the National Girl Reserve Conference held in McKeesport. In addition, ten girls from the Ferndale group were also sent as delegates. The main speaker at the meeting was Dr. Raymond Van from Harrisburg. Through these conferences the club profited greatly from the subjects discussed and the new ideas each girl brought home. With Miss Margaret Fleming and Miss Martha Myton as their advisers, the club was very active this year. i First Row-A. Schwing, E. Shiber, M. Muchesko, J. Hurrei, M. Houser, P.. J. Buck, R.

Together, with its eX- cellent music, these formations were presented at practically all football games and other functions, including parades, assemblies, and various meetings throughout the year. While still on half-day sessions, band re- hearsals Were held every afternoon at one-thirty. After changing to a full-day schedule, practices were held the first period every Wednesday and Friday mornings. Besides plaving regular band music, the band grasped and played delightful novel and sym- phonic music. For symphonic Work, Mr. Baker set a standard by which tuning and playing were followed. This became very successful in the development and training of the band mem- bers. As a band member fits himself into the organization, he learns the essence of musician- ship. He is taught various types of music, its meaning and method of performance, and in this manner creating an interest and appreciation of all music. Learning the values and essentials of true musicianship, band members are par- ticularly responsible for the revival interest made in music throughout the school. The band serves as a nucleus for all musical activity of the school. Its members help form the orchestra, including the Operetta Orchestra, and the Swing Band. Some branch out into the chorus and Forensic League. from which three members are participating this year. Mary Anna Miller. Richard Humphrey. and John Zupan. First Row-J.

With much success the orchestra has mastered numbers of the great composers. Including among these are uHun- garian Dance No. 5,', 4'Hunting Songf, UTurkish Marchf, uDay in Venice Suitef ulVloment Musicalf '6The Swanf, HPrelude,'7 and MCan- zonettaf' The regular orchestra practiced faithfully their numbers and presented them between acts in the Senior Play, on assembly programs, and for commencement. Practices were held on Tues- day and Thursday mornings during the first period. As each practice session was completed. the members advanced their ability to be better musicians. An outgrowth of the organization is the operetta orchestra. Those possessing more musical ability are chosen for its positions. The operetta orchestra practices only during per- formance time. All music in the operetta was furnished by this organization. Those playing in this group have the opportunity to learn more about musical expression than in a large orchestra. They learn to fit in with the soloists and group singers. This experience is indispen- sable in later musical life. Orchestra practices were held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and after school along with the operetta cast and chorus. This year Richard Humphrey, first trom- bonist in the orchestra and band, represented the Johnstown District in the All-State orchestra held in Johnstown in February. Hopes are held high for next year's orchestra. The school music department has purchased a base violin for future work. In a few years perhaps the orchestra will be large enough to take part in other musical activities. l First Row-Mr. Baker, H, McVicker, D. XYaring, G. Ripple, P, J. Buck, M, A. Miller, M. M.

THE GIRLS' GLEE CLUB 't0f all the arts that enrich and beautify human life, there is none that speaks a language so universal as music, nor any that all can so readily understandf' An extremely active organization with seventy-one members from all the classes, the Cirlls Glee Club has become one of the worthy and beneficial groups of the school. Once a week the students are given the privilege of meeting under the capable direction of Mr. Baker to study music interpretation and to acquire train- ing in self expression. Songs of various types are used, such as the folk, sacred, secular and classic numbers. Some of the clubis favorites are a'Barcarolle7' by Offenback, the HCradle Songl' by Brahms, and "Deep in a Dream.77 The Glee Club provides an opportunity for singing among the girls who care for good music, promotes a finer interest in musical fields, and furnishes an enjoyable recreational outlet for outstanding talent. ln presenting the operetta, the MSunbonnet Girlfi the club took a major part. Wlith the cooperation of the Boys' Chorus the combined musical group presented a very successful pro- gram. The entire cast showed remarkable talent along musical lines. The club has definitely proven its value to each member individually and to the school in general. l"ll'Nt R0W-M- M- Sflly. R. J. Dawson, J. Hume" V Reese, E. Shibcr. V. Hill. A. Rash. H. Fisher, E.

THE BOY'S CHORUS To develop musical ability, an appreciation of vocal music, and a love for singing among the students in the high school is the purpose of the Boys, Chorus. The group, composed of twenty-two boys, have done outstanding Work this year under the direction of lVlr. Baker. Together with the Girls' Glee Club, the members of the Boys? Chorus presented the operetta, 'aThe Sunbonnet Girl," which showed remarkable talent among the students. The scenery and appropriate costumes added beauty and color to the performance. During their weekly meetings, the chorus devotes its time to part singing. The experience and musical knowledge in vocal expression is well worth the time of any boy. Included among the favorite numbers of the class are: HThe Tavern in the Townng uOn the Mall" by Edwin Franco Goldman, uThree Chanteysf, including Uliight Bellsf' 4'Away to Rio," and H0ld Man Noahw by Marshall Bartholomew. The value of the chorus is mainly apprecia- tion of good music. The study made in musical expression and interpretation is the final touch in making the operetta a great success. From the work the group accomplishes, we can find the real worth of the Boys, Chorus to the boys themselves and to the school in general. First Row-D. Gilbert, W. Umberger, J. Easton, R. Humphrey, W.

The 'cjitterbugsn definitely decided that the students of Ferndale High School needed a USwing Bandl' again this year. Although many of the members of last year's group were graduated, several new musicians were added to replace their vacancies. Under the direction of lVlr. Baker, the 4'Swing Beesw have continuously showed progress. The band played several public performances, and with the money received for their efforts manv new types of music were purchased for use this season. Early in the fall, the swingsters played a dance program for the Pep Club of the Johns- town Central High School. ELIZABETH KOYACH CHARLES UCOXXOR . . JEAN DeARMY FRANK TOMKOWSKI HOMER BAKER The Swing Band has been a valuable asset toward promoting a social program at Ferndale.

THE FORENSIC LEAGUE The Forensic League was organized to pro- mote interest in interscholastic debate, oratory, music, and public speaking by encouraging a spirit of fellowship and by conferring awards of distinction upon deserving candidates. Students trying out in any field of forensic work, whether they place or not, are eligible for membership. ln reality, the league is a part-time organization as it is reorganized each year for the contests. The Forensic contests provides an oppor- tunity for outstanding students who possess un- usual ability in some field to advance them- selves beyond the regular classroom work. Each year, the contestants benefit from the oppor- tunity of competing against the best from other schools, and from the experience and associa- tions these students gather comes the reward for their work. This year Ferndale sent nine students to compete with others from the county at Ebens- burg on April l.. Of these Gladys Jones and Mary Ann Hassenplug placed first. At a district contest on April 1411 and 15 at State College they each received third place.

Scribe ......W.... ....,,...... Troop 30 of Ferndale was organized by the Admiral Robert E. Peary Council, Boy Scouts of America, in May, 1938. Starting with eleven scouts at the time of installation, the troop has increased its enrollment to thirty-two members, four leaders, and eight committeemen. The scouting movement is a program of interesting, useful things for boys to do in their leisure time. These boys learn the mysteries of Woodcraft and nature, first aid, swimming, cooking, camping, signaling, maping, hiking, and citizenship. Scouting provides an oppor- tunity for boys to serve. Its activities not only give pleasure and knowledge, but they prepare to meet any emergency. The Ferndale organization ranks him-h among D the most active troops in the Johnstown district. PAUL KUNKLE DWIGHT DICK WADE KIPP HOMER BAKER ERNEST SHULL .. . DAVID BEIHL Since the organization last May, the boys have established an excellent and memorable record in various phases of the scouting program. The outstanding activity of the troop is summer camping. Last year the boys spent one week at Kiwa-Li-Rota, the Admiral Robert E. Peary Scout Council Camp, and are planning to return for a two-week period this July. Mr. Keller, chairman of the troop committee, pro- vides a way for each scout to earn his necessary camping expenses during the year. Through this program practically eyery scout in the troop is a camper. The Ferndale Organization is looking for- ward to another successful year and a very en- joyable summer vacation.

GRACE HETRICK BYRON KUHS The Dramatic Club held its first meeting on February 8, 1939. Miss Hetrick and Mr. Kuhs supervised the organization. ln the second meet- ing the club elected officers to carry out its plans for the year. During the club periods the members were instructed in breath control, reading a short poem twice with only one breath, expressing themselves without the use of their voices, only making motions with their bodies, also using the same sentence several times to express dif- ferent manners and ideas. Later a program committee was appointed with James Saly acting as chairman. Others composing this committee were Rosemary Burns, Betty Grace Griffith, Audrey Mosebarger, and Mary Lou Swartz. This group had charge of the entertainment that was furnished to the club. As a result of their Work, the play, c4Wurzel Flummeryfi was presented on March 8, 1939.

MARGARET FLEMING The Art Club is a group of students who wish to increase and extend their love, beauty and appreciation for art. Many entered the organi- zation because they wished to make art either their hobby or profession in later life. The Art Club combines the social, education- al, and aesthetical interests of the entire art department. Varied phases of work were carried out in the weekly meetings. One of the outstand- ing subjects encouraged was the ability to ex- press oneis feeling and emotion through beauty and splendor. Many pieces of work were carried out in oil, water-color, pastels, sketchings, and beaded handcraft. Although the half day sessions were busy, the club found ample time to do some extra work on the side, to be shown and displayed in the annual exhibition planned by the club. The club has attempted to bring life into the school by their work during gloomy moments. The members hope to pass their heritage on to future clubs with the thought that its aim will always be before them. The success of the club this year should be an inspiration for others to follow.

TOWNSEND Although the club suffered a late start due to the half day session of school the first sem- ester, much has been accomplished by the group. The weekly meetings were spent discuss- ing various topics in aviation such as planes, dirigibles, models, shells, air pictures, famous pilots, and modern aviation in war. On March 29, 1939 the club sponsored a model contest for its members in the gymnasium of the school. The club was divided into two classes, the experienced and the inexperienced model builders. The entire group constructed the same model, a Senior R. O. G. The judges were local men who had a knowledge and in- terest in the field of aviation. The club was very well enlightened and entertained with information Mr. Townsend gave concerning his ten week tour of the west coast last summer. While there he visited several air- plane factories and some of the nation's largest landing fields. Mr. Townsend was in California when Howard Hughes returned after circling the world in a little over three days. The Aviation-Science Club has been a bene- ficial organization for its members. The club is planning to sponsor a larger series of pro- grams next year. The members of the club are: John Arm- strong, John Beltz, Cordon Berkey, Paul Blough.

HERBERT ENGLISH WADE KIPP The purpose of Know Your City Club is to provide an opportunity for students to become better acquainted with the business centers in Johnstown and the suburbs, and to discuss the more important civic problems of the day in order to promote and develop better citizenship among the boys and girls. Although the nature of the club is slightly different from the other organizations. the mem- bership of the group has grown greatly since its inauguration. Two meetings each month are spent in ex- cursion trips to local business establishments and industrial factories. The remaining periods are devoted to informal discussion treating with the various club expeditions during the month. The students will long remember the interesting places that were yisited this semester. This type of field excursion has a worthy educational yalue. Not only do the students enjoy the opportunity to journey beyond the walls of the school. but they actually see the different industrial operations in action. The club is definitely a yaluable asset to its mein- hers. The members of the club are: Edward Beltz. Betty Brant. Bill Clawson. Charles Dibert. Alice Eash. Frank Fitzgihhon. LaRue Green. Lee Hall.

DARL YOUNKER Secretary .....,.... .,,..,i M ARIAN TRAMMFR Adviser ....,.............i...., PEARL LICHTENFELS The Knitting Club was not organized until after the Christmas holidays, however once in- augurated its progress was rapid. Most of the members of the club were beginners, that is, they hadnit the slightest idea as to how to proceed with the methods of knitting. At the first meeting the officers were nom- inated and elected. Miss Lichtenfels instructed all of the beginners to bring some yarn and needles to the next meeting. The following week this was done, and by the end of the period, many of the members of the club knew the fundamental points of knitting. During the remaining time the club periods were devoted to the making of gloves, and other useful articles. By the end of the year these materials will be completed and many will wear them to school next fall. The Knitting Club is one of the most im- portant organizations because of the fact that it teaches the members to construct useful things for themselves and their friends. The success of the club was largely, if not entirely, due to the patience and untiring efforts of Miss Lichtenfels who was the sole instructor of the group this year. Members: Grace Falsone, Mary Falsone, Sylvia Kumerday, Virginia Carney, Mary F.

THE HOME MAKING CLUB President .,,.. ..,. E DNA MAE PETERS Secretary ,...... .,....,. A GNES POLIACEK Treasurer ,. ,. .. DORIS WARREN Adviser . . .. ...... MARTHA MYTON A comparatively new club was organized by the Home Economics Department during the year, the Home Making Club. At present, the membership of the group totals twenty-two girls. Progressiveness has been chosen as the pass- word of the organization. The program included and emphasized a wide variety of work. First the girls made Girl Reserve scarfs. The second project taken over by the club was the making of the operetta costumes. The undertaking was so successful that several of the members have made duplicates of the costumes for themselves. Some of the girls have been sewing for the teachers, others have been working on their own personal articles. The goal of the group is to make a well- planned spring wardrobe, their aim, to complete it. To this end the club has been working earnestly and patiently, knowing that finally they will have accomplished something of value and usefulness. Under the supervision of Miss Myton, the class is planning to discuss such subjects as charm, personality, color harmony, and clothing selection. Every member of the club feels certain that her time was profitably and wisely spent in be- longing to the Home Makers Club. Members of the club are Dorothy Boyer, Helen Cvrkel, Mary Ann Hassenplug, Hannah Hildebrand, Grace Mackell, Agnes Malinak, Edna Mae Peters, Erma Rhodes, Ruth Shikalla, Doris Warren, Helen Adams, Florence Getzik, Jeanne Opel, Agnes Poliacek, Donnabelle Porter, Daisy Shaffer, Gladys Todhunter, Chris- tine Ceslovnik, Jean Jones, Mary Maystrovoch, Mary Parlevechio, Garnet Rhodes. kv .a .- ,E Z ,41 Q - fi .w ,. ni T , L gf X , ' w A 2,2 . 7 Q F" if 'lt-s Q W Q, LX, M Y K 5 ff'-nf, ii. lk Q j X ---'T iff' X M " 2 f ,ve . , 1 f A ' A ' 2 I 1 ' A , " A X f' li 5, ' Q. - 5 .

The Jackets battled through a tough and strenuous schedule with brilliance and color that enabled them to capture two different gridiron titles, the Western Division P. 1. A. A. Championship, and co-holders of the Cambria County Football Conference. Coach Bruce M. Fisher, Ferndaleis varsity football, basketball, and track mentor, with the assistance of Franklin George, began prepara- tions for his thirteenth gridiron campaign at the local school with five lettermen from the 1937 Cambria County champions and some forty additional candidates. On Saturday, September 3, with less than two weeks of practice, Ferndale invaded Wind- ber to engage the husky Blue and White aggre- gation. For the past nine years Windber had continually handed the Yellow Jackets a defeat, but it was with the spirit of revenge that Fern- dale took the field against the Coaltowners. The COACH ASS'T. COACH FISHER GIGURG ld Jackets started the ball rolling with a 8-0 victory and displayed a combination of power and de- ception that would be hard to stop. Both the line and backfield were brilliant, and demonstrated to the many spectators that Ferndale had a com- bination that would give their opponents plenty of trouble during the season. After sending his squad through a brisk pace the following week, Coach Fisher primed his Black and Gold gridders to give Shade Township a setback for their 1937 tie-game. With a mag- nificant display of razzle-dazzle, the Jackets rolled up their second victory of the season, 39-0. A stiff test awaited the Ferndale squad the following Friday when the schedule called for the strong DuBois eleven at the Point. The Westerners had sailed easily through their first two encounters with decisive scores and were determined to give the local team its first set- back. ln the opening minutes of the game, Fern- dale staged a sustained drive of 60 yards to put the locals in front 6-0. By an off tackle play, Tercek smashed his way through the line for the first touchdown. Receiving the ball on the 20 yard line, the determined DuBois gridders marched straight down the field for their first score. The Fisher clan then let loose a marvelous exhibition of razzle-dazzle deception and power drives to pile up a decisive 2-1--T victory. The following week Ferndale inet Franklin at the Point on a mud-soaked field in drizzling rain and storm. Neither team was able to display much in the way of football, but Tercek waded through the mud on a 50 yard end run to score the only tally. Shooting a quick pass across the line to Atkinson the Jackets scored the extra point and eeked out a T-0 victory. Ferndale next lined up against Boswell and with another beautiful display of razzle-dazzle stung the invaders to death. By scoring in every quarter to roll up a 40-T advantage. the Black and Cold turned back the visitors with a de- cisive victory. With fire straight wins for the season, the locals took the field against a sterling forward wall from Westmont. ln the annual Qjl'lft'lgt' battle Football Conference Awards Left: VV. P. T. A. A. Trophy Right: Cambria County Trophy Center: VV. P. I, A. A. Team Award the Hilltoppers took possession and control of the ball practically all of the first half. Fern- dale's attempts to run the ball were uselessg marred by numerous fumbles, the locals were forced to play a defensive game the entire half, Tercek and Atkinson performed like two veterans in the second period. Running the ball in perfect style, these two gridders staged a scoring spree to upset the Red and Slate team 13-0. Aided by some beautiful blocking and interference, the Black and Gold returned to life to keep their record unmarred. Another difficult test awaited the team on Saturday afternoon at Portage. The main-line gridders were undefeated for the season and were determined to hand Ferndale their first defeat. The first half was played on even terms, neither team could break through the opposing defense. Ferndalels aerial attack was useless against such a powerful line as Portage dis- played. Being greatly outweighed but never outfought, the Jackets stubbornly fought on. With the start of the second half came the thrill l Tercek, receiving a pass from center on his own 40 yard line, ran 60 yards around left end for the lone touchdown of the day. With a 6-0 score the Fishermen were now determined to keep the lead. Although forced several times in a des- perate attempt by Portage to score, the Jackets pulled through a hard fought battle to emerge victorious. Vlfith this victory Ferndale now claim- ed the Championship of Southern Cambria County. Conemaughls scrappy lron-Horse machine put up a game fight, but found themselves trail- ing 24-0 at the close of the final quarter. Scoring honors were divided among Tercek, Balog, and Davis. Playing against a heavy, defensive team. the locals took to the air in order to capture their sixteenth straight victory. Ferndale's un- erring passing artillery completely baffled the Detzelmen who threatened but little to put over a score, and were forced to play a defensive game throughout most of the sixty minutes of tugging. ln the second foreign invasion of the season. the Black and Cold team repeated its feat of the previous week and handed the Ebensburg eleven a 13-T trimming to clinch the Southern Division Championship of Cambria County. A small, light machine from Adams Town- ship lined up against the home lads but were swamped under by a decisive 32-0 victory. Fern- dale's second and third team played practically the entire second half. It was wllercelc bighti' for this retiring veteran gave a spectacular dis- play of his unusual ability in running the ball to pile up twenty-four of his teamis points. With a nineteen game winning streak the Yellow Jackets had but one remaining scheduled game. Journeying to Curwensville to play before a crowd of nearly four thousand spectators the Jackets took the field against one of the toughest foes to face the Fishermen this year. From the opening kickoff to the final whistle, a courag- eous and fighting Jacket eleven attempted to eke out a victory. but it was Curwensyilleis day. The home team upset the visitors l3-tl and made the race for the Western Pennsylvania title close between the three leading contendersslllindber. Curwensville and Ferndale. At a meeting of the conference coaches held Left: Tercek crosses goal for touchdown.

A and were given the right to represent the West in the annual East-West championship battle to be played on December 3rd. Kulpmont. the rep resentative team of the East. played hostess to Ferndale. ln the ensuing battle. Ferndale bowed to defeat at the hands of one of the smoothest and most powerful and deceptive teams to ever face a Yellow Jacket combination. The Fishe lads were held scoreless during the first three periods of the game. ln the closing minutes of the last quarter. Ferndale ran three touchdowns across to eke out a 50-I9 score. Although Kulp mont outweighed the Ferndale team almost eighteen pounds per man and displayed unusual brilliance in every department. the local team ney er gave up until the final whistle. Since it was impossible to arrange a dale for the Cambria County play off. Xanty-Glo. the representative champions of the Northern Di vision. and Ferndale. the winner of the Southern title. were declared eo-holders of the V938 Cam bria County Championship. ln building his WSW team.

VARSITY BASKETBALL Ferndale High's Yellow Jackets launched their cage campaign against a strong alumni quintet in the annual Varsity HIP' Club game. Although the varsity trailed by a few points throughout the first three periods, the alumni were forced to come from behind in a thrilling last quarter to defeat the locals, 34-30. The high school boys hit their stride early in the last chapter and scored 11 quick points while limit- ing the opposition to two to take the lead for the first time. The graduates knotted the count at 28-28 and with three minutes remaining to play moved out in front. Wissinger was high scorer, connecting three times from scrimmage and four times from the foul line for a total of 10 points. The Jackets had little trouble in taking a 32-21 victory from Portage High.

The score at the quarters stood 6-3, 15-10, 26-14. Wissinger and Rogers paced the Yellow Jacket attack with a total of 25 points. Rolling up its margin of victory in the third frame, the scholastics defeated Ebensburg Cam- bria High, 20-15. The first two periods were fought on defensive terms, the score standing 3-2 in favor of Ferndale and 5-5 at the half. Flashing a strong defense, the Black and Gold upset Wfindber, 29-15.

Held on fairly even terms the first half, the Johnstown Catholic High cagers hit their stride in the last two periods to sink the Yellow Jackets 39-25. Although the Catholic proteges were in front the entire way, they were never able to gain more than a five-point lead until the third quarter. After three close quarters, the Fisher clan staged a 16-point scoring spree to win easily over a snappy Ebensburg quintet, 35-26. Scoring honors went to Rogers with 4 field goals and 2 points from the foul line for a total of 10 points. In a return engagement Conemaugh High School's Iron Horses put on a last-minute rally to turn the tables on the Ferndale Yellow Jack- ets, 32-29. With only four minutes of play re- maining and the Jackets leading by 7 points, 27- 20, the Horses came galloping back from the brink of defeat to count 12 points to Ferndalels 2 and edged over the finish line a winner by a nose. Up until the final frame the Jackets ap- peared to have the situation well in hand. They were in front, 9-7, 15-12, 27-20 as the quarters ended. Westniont High scored its most important victory of the season in taking the measure of its old arch rival, 42-30, on the Hilltop floor. This was a costly defeat for the Black and Gold as it squashed Ferndalels pennant hopes, for it was the Jackets, fourth loss. Given a tough battle for three quarters, Catholic High turned on the steam in the final heat to annex a 39-29 decision on the locals, floor. lts attack clicking against the Crimson's zone defense in the first half, Ferndale jumped away to a 9-5 lead in the first quarter and in- creased their advantage to 19-13 by the half time.

The Jackets blasted the Franklin Blue Jays' Conemaugh Valley League championship hopes by trouncing the Birds 24-13. After the first quarter which Franklin quintet carried by a 4--3 margin, it was all Ferndale as the Jackets went into the lead at 10-7 at the half and then boasted advantage to 20-10 at the close of the third period.

Meeting Adams Township for their first round play, the Jackets walloped their opponents in an easy engagement, 41-14. The Townshippers gave the Jackets a battle in the first quarter which ended in a 9-9 deadlock. With the start of the second session the winners quickly pulled awav and showed an 13-12 lead at the half. They boosted their margin to 26-12 going into the last round. Wissinger claimed high scoring honors with a total of 12 points, making 6 tosses from the floor. In a nip and tuck battle with Conemaugh, the most outstanding bidder for the champion- ship, the teams played on even terms until late in the third period. Pacing the first two quarters by a narrow margin, the Ferndale cagers were pressed hard for the lead at several times. Hit- ing their stride, the Iron Horses went out in front and held a lead until the final whistle, eliminating Ferndale from the race. With only two losses through graduation. re- placed by a promising squad of reserves, it is hoped that next season will bring a winning quintet and a victorious season.

The squad was composed of Freshmen and Sophomores who performed with remark- able skill and ability to assure capable material for next yearls varsity. The Junior Varsity this year consisted of two quintets, a Freshmen and a Sophomore group. By dividing the boys into different teams they are able to develop more skill and accuracy among themselves as a playing unit. The team entered the South Fork elimina- tion Tournament and finished with an impressive record. Although the other schools in the play- off represented strong teams, Ferndale finished third, winning the consolation award. Two of the Junior Varsity members were honored for their outstanding performance by winning a position on the All Tournament Team. The record which they established as a team is an indication of their ability.

Keen rivalry between all the teams is one outstanding characteristic, and one that guarantees first class, high-caliber games. The league was organized into two divisions, the Majors and the Minors. Each class selected its representative teamsg the more experienced boys playing on the Major teams, while the players with less skill competed in the Minors. Due to a misfortune the Minor league dropped out, but the Majors continued stronger than ever. The Seniors won the pennant and gained SENIORS SoPHoMoREs the undisputed championship of the interclass basketball league for 1939. Playing a schedule of ten games the Seniors won seven, dropping three to the other classes. Their excellent team- work, fine passing, and marksmanship were factors to their credit which helped them to clinch the winning title. STANDING OF TEAMS Won Lost Seniors ....... ....

GIRLS' INT ERCLASS BASKETBALL Basketball is one of the active sports which the girls of Ferndale have always enjoyed. This year the league consisted of four teams, providing an opportunity for approximately forty girls to compete in the weekly contests. During the nine game schedule each team dis- played the same good spirit and fine sportsman- ship which has always been an outstanding out- come of the activity. All during the season keen competition was evident. The standing of the Senior, Sophomore, and Freshmen teams was tied several times dur- ing the pennant race. At the end of the schedule the Freshmen were leading by the narrow SENIORS SOPHOMORES margin of one game, hence the pennant for l939 was given to the ninth year quintet. Since the basketball league helps to find va place for each girl in the recreational field as well as to promote her own physical develop- ment, it is a sport which every participant en- joys and cherishes.

BOYS' INTERCLASS VOLLEYBALL Shortly after the opening of school the Boys' Volleyball League was organized. Players and captains were chosen from each class, and ap- proximately forty boys availed themselves of the opportunity to take part in the sport. The manager of the league was John Bailey who arranged the schedule. The league was organized into two halves. The first division continued until Christmas vacation, and the second half resumed until the end of the season. Games were played during the noon hour on Monday and Wednesday. The officials were selected from the boys in each team who had familiar knowledge and ex- perience of the game. As the season advanced, keen rivalry and competition was felt between the teams. At times the outcomes of the contests were so close that hot controversies existed, but these only SEN1oRs SOPHOMORES encouraged the members to play a little harder in order to win. The strongest competition developed between the Juniors and the Seniors. Each team success- fully threw their opponents for losses. During the season schedule these two teams met each other twice, each class winning one of the games. The teams became more determined to win the championship, but the underclassmen were con- tinuous threats for the opportunity. For the past two years the pennant was won by the present Senior team. The Juniors were aiming to break this winning streak and they put forth every effort toward such an end. Since the season was shortened and a play- off could not be arranged. an agreement was reached. The Seniors and Juniors were declared co-champions of the Boys' Interclass Volleyball League of 1939.

U, .xllismy GIRLS' INTERCLASS VOLLEYBALL Volleyball always has been an outstanding interclass sport for the girls of Ferndale. This year approximately seventy girls from the four high school classes took part in the competition. The Eighth Graders were also included in the league until afternoon classes were scheduled for them. Each class had its best players in every game, making them all very interesting and exciting. Although each team was good, the Seniors and Freshmen were ahead at the end of the season. These two met in a playoff to determine the championship, and the Seniors succeeded in edging out their opponents to win the pennant. This makes the third year the Seniors have won SENIORS SOPHOMORES the contest. During the last two years they have only lost one game. Since these games give the girls some clean fun and friendly rivalry as well as help them develop good sportsmanship, we predict for the league and for the girls of Ferndale High School many good times in the future.

Bailey' Track started early in the spring with nearlv forty competing for places. There were very' few lettermen back from the previous year so that practically all the candidates were new and inexperienced. After two weeks of practice. Coach Fisher arranged an interclass meet to determine those qualified and possessing ability' in the various events. Most of the boys displayed about the same talent but not too strong for school competi- tion. For this reason, the track team did not meet with its usual success. The outstanding event was the relay. the team composed of Charles Tercek. William Livengood, Archie Bruce and Victor Balog. The squad competed in several meets with district schools. Among these were Altoona. Ebensburg, Cochran, Garfield. Joseph johns. Indiana and the Junior Pitt Track and Field meet. Although the track squad as a group did not place among the winning teams. there were sev- eral individuals who did win places in the dif- ferent meets. Dick placed in the mile. the high jump and the pole vault. Tercek captured sev- eral places in the 4:40 yard race. At the County meet in lfbensburg the Fern- dale llelay' team won first place and received the relay trophy for the event. This was the outstanding accomplislnnent for the season. Since Ferndale lacks a proper training field and track. it is yery difficult for the boys to actually condition tlremselyes for competition. ln place of the sport this year. the athletic de- partment is plamiing on substituting soft ball and interclass track. This will permit more of the Ferndale boys to participate in minor sports. lt is hoped that the new actiyities will attract a large group of thc boy s.

A special matinee was given to the grade school Wednes- day, November 16. Miss Sara Rhoads directed the play with Frank Tomkowski as student assistant. The prologue takes place in the drawing room of the Palazzo Dellatorre, Rome. The first two acts take place in the home of the Boydis, an average American home, while scene II of act III takes place in Phil7s living room in the loft of a barn. Miss Fleming and Mr. Kipp with the aid of several students designed a very appro- priate stage setting. The Gately S Fitzgerald Furniture Company and the Penn Traffic Com- pany very generously loaned us some necessary furniture.

Hazel is the first one to mistake Princess Dellatore for the sewing woman they were expecting. Immediately Hazel is very fond of the Princess. Ruby doesn't like the idea of the princess coming to her home, as she fears the princess may attract Milton D,Arcy from her. Phil Lennox, an old friend of the Boyd family was quite fond of Ellen Guthrie before she married the Prince. He is the first one to recognize her as Ellen Guthrie instead of the sewing woman. Timid Joe Boyd was next to recognize her. Ellen is worried, because Millertown was still expecting a princess. Not wanting to dis- appoint them sheugot clothes from a friend in Chicago and a girl named Josephine to serve as a French maid. When she arrived in all her splendor, Millertown got what they expected. Milton and Ruby plan to be married and Ellen Guthrie finds she still loves Phil. Their dream came true.

THE CPERETTA The glSunbonnet Girlfl an operetta in two acts, was presented by the mixed chorus in the high school auditorium March 16 and 17. Dir- ected and coached by Mr. Homer Baker and Miss Ethel Neidlinger, the cast showed remark- able talent in presenting their parts. To give the story of the operetta a natural setting, a middle western farm scene was painted by Miss Margaret Fleming with the assistance of several members of the art department. A beautiful stage background representing a large western farm, showing a series of rolling, partly wooded hills, the narrow country roadside, shadded occasionally by lonely treesg a massive but well-constructed farm barn, and a patch work of fields, gave a realistic touch which made the operetta very natural and real to life. The final touch was added with the gorgeous cos- tumes of various colors to decorate the stage. The story of the operetta is centered around the life of Susan Clifton, better known as the HSunbonnet Girlfl Having been left an orphan while quite young by her musical parents, Susan was placed under the custody of a skinflint couple, Mr. and Mrs. Abijah Scroggs. As the scene opened, Mrs. Henry Coleman. the president of the Federation of State Music Clubs, arrived in the village to stir up local talent and giye the contestants a chance to win a scholarship in music. Her daughter, Barbara, her son, Bobg and his pal, Jerry, accompanied her on the trip into the country. A musical contest was held in the front yard of a pros- perous and respected farmer known as Mr. Meadows, whose daughter was to be one of the contestants. Mrs. Meadows, who was greatly in- terested in the young folks, was aiding Mrs. Cole- man to conduct the musical contest. Sue hearing of the contest. shyly met the women in charge and 1 A First Row--Betty Griffith, Ruth Sivits, Betty ltnnnnol. NYultcr lioqrls.

When Mrs. Scroggs, prompted by her daughter, Evalina, heard of it, they hatefully refused to allow Sue to take part sice she hadn't and decent clothes for such an affair. Barbara, Bob, and Jerry sympathized with Sue and went to her aid. With the beginning of the second act,a friendly crowd of young people had gathered to take part in the dayis event. The list of contestants rapidly dwindled when Mrs. Coleman discovered the name of a certain girl called Susan Clifton. When Sue arrived, dressed in a beautiful evening gown belonging to the kind hearted Barbara, the crowd was startled and surprised. After her number, the judges im- mediately presented her a scholarship as winner of the grand prize. Sue soon discovered that her beauty and charm had captured the affection of Bob Cole- man who offered his hand and heart, but he is rejected on the grounds that his interest is based on sympathy for her misfortune and poverty. In the meantime, Bob went in quest of the constable, Ezra McSpavin. Jerry also discovered that he was in love with Barbara. Bob had spoken to the constable about Sue, releasing information that he believed her parents left some sort of property to her, but the Scroggs had refused to divulge the nature of it. The constable was persuaded to intercede in the name of the law. Then, just at the conclusion of a dance number, the constable disclosed a dispatch box containing Sue's rightful property and among it a deed to a town lot in Los Angeles which proved to be of considerable value. With this proof, the barrier that held Sue from marry- ing Bob was broken. The curtain drops on the prospect of a double wedding. Ample humor is offered by Mr. Scroggs, the henpecked husband, Jerry, the breezy college youthg Evalina, the shrewd Vixen, the village constable and his simple son, Reuben. Much credit for the success of the Operetta should be given to Mr. Baker, Miss Neidlinger and Mr. Kuhs who directed and coached the students, to Miss Fleming and her assistants who painted the stage scenery, to Miss Myton who supervised the making of the costumes, to Mr. Kipp who constructed the stage.

RUTH SIVITS PARADE OF PROGRESS After the first great catastrophe of Johns- town, the Flood of 1889, Ferndale as a com- munity began to develop. It was then that the residents of the borough began to consider the question of education for the future citizens of Ferndale and its surrounding areas. The first school building was opened in November, 1889. It was a one-room, unplastered, wooden struc- ture and was then located in the thick-wooded maple grove where the present new high school building now stands. The first teacher in the community was Norman E. Berkey of Somerset. The growth from 1889 to 1902 was slow considering the fact that only sixty pupils were in attendance the latter year. ln 1905 the community witnessed an expan- sion with the beginning of a business section and the construction of the Windber carline through Ferndale. To accomodate the seventy six pupils at this time a second story was added to the building. ln 1911, on account of the overcrowded con- ditions, the seventh and eighth grades were moved to the Municipal Hall on Vickroy Ave- nue. A new six-room, light brick structure was erected in 1912 to replace the old inadequate building. This was part of the old grade building destroyed by fire in 1936. At the same time the faculty added several new members to its staff. The following year, in 1913, a one-year high school was organized, with four pupils enrolled. By 1914 the class had increased to six students. and to fifteen by the following year. There con- 1t'lGltN1JA1i1f1 IIIIAIPIG SUIIHUI.. 1002 GRADE SCHOOL FIRE. 1936 tinued a steady' growth during the coming years. By 1916 an addition of six rooms was necessary' to accommodate the enrollment of 250 students. The spring of 1919 saw the first graduating class of a four-year high school. Nora Saylor and Robert Clay comb were the graduates. The routine was to spend two years at Ferndale. one year at Dale. and back to Ferndale for a fourth year. Frank Howard and Foster Bowden were the graduates the second year. lly' 1921 another building was demanded and was erected on the play ground where the present high school now stands. This building was colu- pleted in 1928. consisting of thirteen classrooms. a study hall with library facilities. an auditorium with a capacity of fiye lumdi-ed. and an equipped gyinnasiuin. This housed both the junior and senior high schools. The approximate enrollment was 1021 of which .t2o were attending the first six grades and 001 high school students. This unusual growth developed from the tuition students of Concntaugh Township. .lenners Toyynsliip. llolsopplc. Stonycrcclx Township. and Middle Taylor Township. These students not only helped the high school in a financial way but aided such ac- tivities as athletics, dramatics and music. Their attendance increased the size of the classes and decreased the cost of instruction. In 1931 the Home Economics department was added to the high school curricula. Four years later a boys, general industrial arts shop was installed in the basement of the grade building. . A disastrous chapter was written into the history of the Ferndale Schools in 1936 when the grade school was destroyed by fire. '4On the morning of December 11, 1936, occurred the fire which burned the Ferndale Grade School Building. When the blaze was first discovered, only a few regarded it as serious: it was thought that the fire could be controlled without serious loss and damage. Scarcely any one believed that the fire would reach the as- tounding proportions that it did. The fire was first reported shortly before eight o'clock in the morning when smoke was LOOKING NORTH FROM HENRY STREET GRADE SCHOOL BUILDING BEFORE THE FIRE noticed issuing from the building. By the time water was supplied, the fire had gained such headway that under no circumstances could it be checked. About noon the entire structure had been burned out except for one or two rooms along Henry Street. The loss of the building and equipment was estimated at 347,000 In order to meet the emergency, grades seven to twelve attended the first session of school from 8:00 A. M. until noon, while grades one to six assembled from 12:30 to 4:30. lt also became necessary to schedule the extra-curricular ac- tivities of the high school in the afternoon. High school clubs were done away with and that time was utilized for additional class periods. ln the fall of 1937 ground was broken for the erection of a new high school building where the old grade school had stood. When fully completed and equipped, the new school will contain 18 class-rooms, a sound proof music conservatory, a science laboratory, a commercial department, an industrial arts shop, a home economics department, a special art room, a spacious auditorium, a fully equipped gym- nasium, an administration office, and a complete cafeteria. Modern in every respect the new Ferndale High School should be a challenge to better educational opportunities for every stu- dent. The latest in modern equipment and text books are used throughout the entire school with the result that a progressive educational system is maintained at Ferndale. -MARY ANN HASSENPLUG H .NEED JOM!

CLASS PROPHECY August 15, 1960 Dear Diary: Being here at the World's Fair is more fun than we ever imagined a summer vacation could be. The days have been so crowded and rushed with events that we have neglected to completely write each day's happenings, but it seems welve seen everyone in our high school class of 1939. It was a great joy to meet so many of our former friends! Early this morning we caught a trolley at the corner of Fifth and Forty--third Street for the fair grounds. Janet was barely awake, but the the cool morning breeze from the ocean soon re- freshed her with pep and zip. To our great sur- prise we were happy to meet the Trammer sisters, Marian and Dorothy, at the entrance to the fair. In the course of our conversation Marian re- lated her career as a commercial instructor at the University of Washington. Dorothy, director of the sales department of the Sears Morgan Com- pany of New York City, had aranged to spend a two weeks, vacation with her sister in New York. Our chat together was momentarily interruped by an unusual commotion at the entrance to the main gate. Directing traffic with furious waves of his arms was john Bailey, our former class president, yelling his age-old expression, 'fmake it snappy and don't forget it." Laughingly, we pushed through the crowd and made our way to his station. We learned from our brief discussion together that a group of former boys from good old "203" who could always arouse the most noise and excitement, really had a reason for their commotion now. Yes, its true, they have the largest "Flea Circus" at the Fair. Alvin Allshouse, Mike Batz, Gordon Berkey and Dean Blue managing a flea circus! It sounded impossible. Our party resumed their trip. After purchasing our admittance tickets, we leisurely strolled along the main walk looking from right to left at the modernistic arrangement of the different buildings. Approaching the Westinghouse Science Building, Virginia caught sight of what looked like a familiar candid-camera fan, Charlie Barnes, it couldn't be anyone else! He had just snapped a picture of two famous ladies. The next building we visited was the "Ford Motors." The floor manager was no other than the great master of ceremonies of our Senior class, james Saly. Of Course Mr. Saly tried a smooth sales talk. Leaving here, we then ventured to the Science Building. Upon entering we found that Ernest Shull had gone in business with Dr. jykell and Mr. Hyde. We then proceeded to the Hall of Fame where we found the pictures of two great 'tCharlies." We took particular notice to O'Connor who had won fame as a great racing driver. Last but not least was the au- thority on problems of American life, Dibert. The Hall of Fame would not be complete without "The Big Four" who played on the All-American Pro- fessional Football team-Carl Bush, Charles Tercek John Rychak, and Robert VVright. VVe actually felt that Ferndale had been well represented among the great men of the world. Vllhile leaving, we ran across Bill Griffithf a professional tipper on horse racing. VVe talked over several incidents of our former school days, recalling many of the jolly times we spent in detention hall! Bill informed us that Dorothy Boyer, Helen Bush, Eileen Daugherty, and Ruth Brant had all turned out to be nurses in the General Hospital in Philadelphia. 7 August 16 Today we called a taxi to take us to the fair. VVhen stepping into the rear seat, we immediately recognized the driver as Victor Balog. It was grand to meet Victor and his business suited us fine! Vile took the longest route to the main gate, and drove to some of the most interesting places. VVhile speed- ing down Fifth Avenue, we passed the t'Ritz Beauty Salon" owned by Helen Molnar. Victor informed us that she had employed two of our old classmates, Eileen Shiher and Leona Pittman as operators. Two blocks further, we caught sight of "The Smart Dress Shop," owned hy Margaret Muchesko. By this time we had to end our pleasant chat with Victor, as we finally had arrived at the entrance of the "Great Fair." VVe were stopped at the curb by a tall, heavy set uniformed man. It was no other than the State Motor Policeman, hearing the name "Lieutenant Vilarren XViley" upon the badge of his coat. lie had merely delayed us to say "hello" and to inform us of some friends he had met entering the fair. Before departing, VVarren told us that Bettie Mae VValker had received an excellent position as a correspondent for the Saturday Fvening Post. Strolling along, arm in arm, we caught the faint sound of music. Vpon drawing nearer, Mary Ann recognized the music of a famous radio orchestra, the "Rippling Rhythm Makers." XVe just couldn't help hut step inside the dance garden and listen to the soothing melodies. NVe noticed on the program that l.ee Ripple was director: NVade Vtnherger was play- ing solo trumpet. After talking with Lee for a short time, he di- rected us to the "Sunch-Hildebrand Hamburger Stand." Rosetta and Hannah had a few words with us and were pleased to announce that their business was so great they really should enlarge their establishment. August 17 Before supper Janet suggested we make a tour of Radio City. Upon our arrival we joined a group of sight seers and recognized our conductor as Edgar Howard. First, we were taken to hear the leading commentator of the day, Walter Beals. In the next studio, we watched a sketch entitled "School Days," dramatized by Florence Borisek, Bert Brendlinger, Vada Lohr, Wayne Knepper and Edna Mae Peters. As it was an original play of true experience, it was really amusing and recalled many former memories. In the last studio, we heard the most popular come- dian of the day, Betty Clark, on the Royal Top Cola program. Also at Radio City we noticed Paramount's latest picture, starring our own Alice Fay. Rosemary Burns was playing as the stepmother in Sam Rose's newest version of Cinderella. Sam has become New York's best known playwright and Rosemary one of Amer- ica's foremost character actresses. This evening we attended the grand opening of a new night club on Times Square. Several noted peo- ple present were called upon to say a few words. Among these were David Shumaker and Bernard Thomas, writers of the latest song hits, "Crocodiles Will Always Exist," it really didn't make sense, but song hits never do. August 18 Today Mary Ann suggested we visit the office of the 'KNew York Times." We were happy to find john Zupan had worked his way to the position of editor. We remembered that John was editor of our 1939 Reflector. He said he would gladly show us through the printing plant. Walking along one of the corridors, who came dashing in, all out of breath, but Betty Howard, the star reporter, with a scoop on the very latest strike of the "Davis Driver's Union." He said that William Rogers, better known as "Bill,'l was president of the union. We next entered one of the extension rooms. Cath- erine Brendlinger and Ruth Shikalla were employed as head typists. They handed us a copy of the latest edition to read. On the front page was printed the news that Walter Ritchey had recently been aD- pointed Secretary of Agriculture in the President's Cabinet. Turning to the women's page, Virginia read an interesting article written by Alice Moore, a Physical Education instructor at the University of New Mexico, on how to prevent overweight. Further down the page we noticed that Ferne Hershberger had recently been crowned the golf queen of the United States. On the society page we read that Marilou Porter was sailing for Europe to study Horticulture, and accompanying her was jean DeArmey who in- tended to study music in Paris. Bidding John a farewell we caught an elevated train to Rockefeller Center. On the same train we met Gladys jones, a noted radio singer, who told us that jacob Schnegg, better known as 'Professor Quiz," was sponsoring a contest this afternoon at the Center for the benefit of the crippled children of New York. Accompanying Gladys, we spent an enjoyable hour with "The Professorf' Also in the audience were Erma Rhodes and Grace Mackell, New York's outstanding fashion designers for the Style Shop of America. VVhat a long day! We decided to return to our ho- tel room and spend the evening as quietly as pose sible. Janet tuned in the radio on KDKA just in time to hear the announcer introduce Frank Tomkowski and his violin. We really decided that our old class- mate had become one of the outstanding musicians of the time. Glancing over the sports page, Virginia read that Clara Herzog and Caroline Kamiel had been crowned the skating champions of the United States. As a team these girls had toured practically every large city in the country and had displayed their un- usual grace and skill as skaters. We were glad to learn that Ferndale was still going places. On the back page of the advertising section, Vera Hill and Anne Schwing had announced the opening of a new hat shop on Forty-Second Street. Mary Ann remarked she would certainly purchase a new hat tomorrow! August 19 Our last day in New York! What a grand time we have spent together in such a short time. Mary Ann secured our tickets at the Greyhound Station and found another of our old friends, Helen Cvrkel. Helen was employed by the Greyhound Lines as a travel guide. She informed Mary Ann that Doris Warren, Agnes Malinak, LaRue Green and Alice Eash were touring the world on an information trip. It seems as though these girls have been employed by the March of Time as news finders. Again, Fern- dale carries on in the share of the world's work. Yes, it looks as though our classmates who set "Progress" as their goal have come well on to attaining it, regardless of their respective fields. The old say- ing, f'Success comes to those who seek it," still holds true.

COMPOSITION ON A PIG I must tell you what I know about a pig. A pig has got four legsg a leg on each cornerg two legs in front and two behind. I I suppose any fool knows that.j Pig,s feet are good to eat, but not until the pig's done using them. I like Iem. I like ,em pickled. A pig has got a tailg he some- times wears it on one side and sometimes on the other. I don't know what the style is nowg pig sty-le I guess. It's fun to cut a pig's tail off, but itas wicked. A pig is just as big as a sheepg that is, if the sheep isn't too big for the pig. A sheep gambolsg pigs don't gambol. Pigs wash themselves in mud. The more mud a pig gets the cleaner he thinks he is. I had a pet pig onceg he's dead now. I liked that pig. Wfe were just like two brothers. He was just like mv brother Bill-had his nose stuck in every- body,s business. Themis the only two pigs I'm personally acquainted with. That's all I know about pigs. A man left his umbrella in a hat-rack of a hotel. Fearing it would be stolen. he left the following card: "The man who owns this um- brella strikes a two-hundred-and-fifty pound blow and will be back in fifteen minutes." A tramp took it and left the following card: "The man who has got the umbrella walks ten miles an hour, strikes a three--hundred pound blow. and won,t be back at all." A man who does business on a large scale: -A coal dealer. Can a lover be called a suitor when he doesn't suit her? Teacher-Johnny. give the principal parts of the verb 'cswinif' Charlie-Swim. swam. swuin. Teacher-Good! New give the principal parts of the verb "dim," Charlie-Teacher. l'd rather not.
