ments . . . lost many hours of sleep because
of those early eight o'clock classes . . . took
active part in activities such as athletics, so-
cial functions, journalistic enterprises, and
school organizations . . . soon felt the loss of
some of our classmates when candy and wax
paper sales began for the sponsoring of the

bars . . . attended our last reception as a farewell celebration . . . set
aside a day for class activities . . . after an inspiring baccalauerate
service came the grand finale . . . autographs, caps, gowns, and com-
mencement . . . the finishing touch to tour of the grandest years ot our
lives . . . now that we are to leave for positions unknown, scenes
crop up in our minds with poignant sentiment, thoughts ot proms,
parties, sports bring back mentally things past . . . a mixture of emotions
within us now that we are to leave Ferndale: sorrow, happiness, thank-
fulness-all form a part ot our feelings.

0 The call for candidates for
the 1939 football season was
answered by forty stalwart, arn-
bitious gridders, each intent upon
winning a berth on the first
eleven . . . confronted with the
difficult problem of developing
gridders of the calibre of those
lost by graduation. Coach Fisher
was working hard to discover
new material to replace Tercek,
Rychak, Balog, Bush, Wright and
Bruce . . . however, the boys of
Black and Gold victories were
strengthened by the return of
many experienced players . . . a-
,se satellites were faund: QQ-ACH QWCH
Hufman, Allison, Barron and Dan-
iels at the terminal posts, Lever-
good, Chappell, Rurnmel and
Parlevechio at the tackles, Falsone, Ohs, Hoffman and Hildebrand at the guard posit-
ions, and Michaels and Hindman as pivots . . . in the background there lay a wealth
of promising material: Wissinger, Atkinson, Clawson, Bruce and Petz were on hand
to toss the ball around.
Preliminary practice and conditioning sessions were clirnaxed by the initial game
of the year when the Iackets met an ever-tough Shade Township foe . . . a large
crowd of spectators witnessed the Townshippers bow to the Iacket's team, 26-U in the

DuBois eleven who were rated as one of the strongest in their section . . . Marusiak,
on cr beautiful sneak play, scored for DuBois in the opening minutes . . . Wissinger
tied the score on a beautiful left end sweep down the side line for a touchdown . . .
at this point, Ferndale begun to click and
pinned the DuBois eleven down to a 21-12
Before a record crowd of boosters an
inspired Windber team took advantage of

a 13-13 tie with the visitors . . . the Fisher-
men drove eighty-one yards for their first score, resulting on a pass to Hufman from Bruce
. . . in the third quarter, Bruce and Wissinger cracked the tackles and used reverses to
score the second touchdown.
The Iackets were virtually eliminated from the year's championship race when they
suffered a stinging 14-U defeat from the powerful Lewistown High in a game marred by a
drenching rain . . . most sparkling play of the game came in the opening play of the first
period . . . Atkinson received the kickoff on his own nine and ran through the entire Lewis-
town team to the twenty-five Where he was bagged by Hughes . . . Atkinson flipped the
ball to Allison on a lateral, but it was a little wide and Lewistown began its first scoring
Registering its fifth straight victory over its Westmont rivals, before a crowd of ten
thousand people, Coach Fisher's lads achieved a decisive victory, 20-6, displaying varied
tricks on the offense and by a Well-balanced attack attained a twenty point lead before the

After battling through three scoreless quarters the Ferndale and Portage teams staged
a thrilling windup as the Iackets scored twice and the Mainliners once in the final period
. . . coping the decision 16-14, Fisher's proteges advanced nearer to the Southern Cambria
County football championship . . . the first scoring play came when Bruce shot a flat
pass to Hufman who crossed the line unassisted, Wissinger kicking the extra point . . .

By a scant margin of two points, the Iackets subdued Conemaugh High's Iron Horses

margin to close the gridiron campaigns . . . Ferndale's first touchdown came as a result of
a fumble when Chappell recovered and Wissinger scored on a right end run . . . Ohs
intercepted on the thirty-seven . . . an aerial from Bruce to Hufman in the end zone was

the start . . . the last scores resulted on a fifty-seven yard march and on a twenty-seven
yard pass following an intercepted aerial.
The 1939 season was brought to a close with nine victories, one tie, and one defeat. Much
credit is due Coach Fisher and Mr. George for having developed such a fine team to rep-

Coach Fisher began preparations for his fourteenth floor campaign at
Ferndale with eight veterans back from the 1938 season, and with fourteen
other candidates . . . entered the newly organized Tri-County Basketball
League composed of six teams-Windber, Westmont, Ebensburg, Blairsville.
Indiana and Ferndale.
Ferndale's Yellow Iackets 'made an impressive start in the Tri-County
League by posting a 26-10 defeat on the Ebensburg Cagers on the local
borough floor . . . piling up a six-point lead in the first quarter, it was the
Iackets all the way.
In a rip-snorting, soul-stirring pandemonium the Black and Gold scored
a 23-21 sudden-death victory over Cresson High in an extra period . . .
in bringing forth a Wild-and-Wooly last quarter, climaxed with a last few
seconds of hair-raising play, these two schoolboy teams staged a truly
spectacular show . . . with less than a minute to go Heilman whipped his
only field goal of the evening through the cords to put Ferndale out in
front, 19-17 . . . but not to be outclassed, Cassidy matched this with his only
goal to tie up the game . . . upon Ferndale's gaining possession of the ball
after the goal, Wissinger thundered up the floor and pitched one through
with fifteen seconds remaining . . . and with a mere eight ticks of the watch
left Gates flamed one through for Cresson to force the contest into an extra
period where lack Hufman scored from A
the floor to raise the flag of victory . MAKE THAT BASKET I
In a thrill-packed game with Westmont
on the local floor the Fishermen and the
Enghmen staged a see-saw battle . . .
through the game, the score was tied no
less than five times and twice the Hill-
toppers held the lead, once at 17-15 in the
toppers held the lead.
With defeat staring them in the face,
the Indiana High School passers rallied late
in the Tri-County League game, registered
seven points in the last three minutes of
play to tie the score as the fourth period
ended, and then added two points in an
extra period to edge out the Iackets 39-37
and assume first place in the pennant race.
Falling short of their goal in a last-
period rally the Ferndale lads dropped a
heated 43-39 decision to Alleghany High of
Cumberland . . . the Iohnstowners started
off TALl.lI.lI1-CI l2.Ll.,l.,,le.ad.4:tiJhe+encL,o.f.,lhe

reins after Cumberland had jumped to a

Iohnstown I-ligh's Trojans jumped into
the drivers' seat early in the contest and
held the whip hand throughout as they de-
feated the Iackets 34-27 in the renewal of
an old rivalry . . . at one stage of the con-
test the visitors managed to slice the I. H. S.
advantage to two points.
Chalking up its third victory in the Tri-
County League, Ferndale passers defeated
the fast Windber quintet, 31-27 . . . after
trailing by one point at the end of the first
frame, the Yellow Iackets held slight leads
at the end of the second and third frames.
In a rough-and-tumble tussle with the
Orange and Black Blairsville High school-
boy five, the Fishermen thumped their hosts
to the tune of 30-22 to strengthen their hold
on second place in the league standings
. . . with big Iim Wissinger as their steady-
ing influence, the visitors took a six-point
first-quarter lead, saw it almost slip away
in the following frame and then rallied to
salt the victory away in the third stanza.

Approximately seven hundred fans packed the new gymnasium to
see the Iackets wipe out the stigma of an early-season defeat suffered at
the hands of the Iohnnies . . . it was anybody's game right up to the final
to go when Clawson dropped in the winning field goal to break a 22-22
Ferndale tightened its grip on first place in the Tri-County League
when the Iackets shaded Indiana High, 31-29, in an extra-period game
on the Ferndale floor . . . it was a close call for the Iackets who were
trailing 29-27 . . . then a personal foul was called on Bruce just as the
whistle sounded to end the fourth quarter . . . it Was a breath-taking
moment, but Bruce connected both tries to tie the score at 29-29 and force
an extra period . . . the victory gave Ferndale almost definite claim for
the Tri-County championship.
Playing before a packed house, the Iackets dropped a heated rough-
and-tumble classic to the Iron Horses of Conemaugh, 26-19 . . . the night's
scoring was accomplished largely by the free-throw method.
At the close of the regular season, the Iackets ended up by Winning
nine out of ten games to be declared champions of their league . . . this
placed the Fishemen in the District play-offs for the P. I. A. A. championships.
Homer City and Gallitzin became the first teams to fall by the wayside
in the battling for the District Six P. I. A. A. championship when they each
dropped a decision to the Yellow Iackets in a first and second-round game
respectfully by scores of 47-22 and 48-24 . . . in the third-round the Iackets
were eliminated from the running when Conemaugh outclassed the losers.
In ending the season, Ferndale again met defeat when the fast Frank-
lin sharp shooters tramped them under 28-25 to remain in the St. Francis

FERNDALE SCHOOL GETS INSPECTION
BY MANY PARENTS
Visitors See Contrast Between
Old and New Facilities
OVER 2,000 PRESENT
Many Improvements Are Made Over
Early School Structures
"It wasn't like this when I went to
This was a popular expression last night
as some 2,000 persons pushed their way
through the halls and rooms of Ferndale's
new 5250.000 high school building inspect-
ing the latest in educational facilities in
Greater Iohnstown's most modern educa-
The occasion was the first "open house"
held at the new structure since it was
placed in use at the opening of the
borough's old grade school building destroy-
ed by fire in 1936.
Parents and friends of borough students,
as well as hundreds of persons from sur-
rounding school districts were included in
the crowd of curious adults who swarmed
through the building from the time the doors
opened at 7 o'clock until well after ll.
Expressions of amazement were heard
frequently as parents mentally contrasted
the improvements made in educational facil-
ities since the days when they attended
school as youngsters.
The modernistic, "streamlined" exterior
appearance of the building itself, presented
a marked contrast to the red-brick building
of former days, while the improvements
within brought forth many comments of ap-
In place of the old box-type desks,
parents found new study desks with ad-
justable seats and tops. Books were not
piled in desks, but were kept in spacious
O WHAT OTHERS HAVE T0 SAY
Instead of glaring light bulbs suspended
from the ceiling, parents found an indirect
lighting system filling the rooms with a
soft glow. Then, too, there were no hot
radiators to sit beside, each room having
its own individual heating system, which
brings heated air into the room through
Many other modernistic features, such as
glass brick in the walls of the gymnasium
and auditorium, a public address system
which is used to send announcements or
radio programs to the class rooms, compact
folding seats in the gym, and an electrically
operated curtain on the auditorium stage,
made more vivid the contrast between the
school of today and that of yesterday.
Boy Scouts and students guided the
visitors through the building, while teachers
were stationed in the rooms to explain the
classroom work. Music during the evening
was furnished by the high school band.
Arrangements for the open house were
made under the direction of Frank Keller,
FOOTBALL PLAYERS AT FERNDALE HIGH

Parlevechio, received letters and sweaters,
and six new lettermen were presented
The new lettermen are: Paul Rummel,
seniorg Glen Hoffman, Blair Hildebrand, lim

O EVENTS OF THE YEAR
PARENTS NIGHT EVENT, FERNDALE.
ATTENDED BY 400
Approximately 400 persons gathered in
the Ferndale High School Thursday evening
for the first Parents' Night Observance held
in the new building since its completion.
Parents and friends spent the evening
conferring with teachers in the different
classrooms, inspecting displays of work
done by the students examining the new
Displays included everything from sam-
ples of practical furniture, such as magazine
racks and utility cabinets, made by boys in
the industrial arts department, to displays
of food, food charts, dresses and other gar-
ments made by girls of the home economics
A feature of the industrial arts display,
first ever arranged at the school, was a
spinet desk made by Leroy Felton, a senior.
A display in the art department, includ-
ing pencil sketches of different students, at-
tracted considerable attention, while a dem-
onstration of experiments performed in the
chemistry laboratories also proved of special
After the inspection trip, a reception was
held in the school cafeteria and tea was
served. Musical entertainment during the
evening was furnished by the high school
band under the leadership of Homer Baker.
The following members of the P. T. A.
were in charge of the affair: Mesdames E.
W. McNally, Frederick Sharpe, Wilson Geis-
ler, Crede Davis, Ioseph Kelly, Robert
Markel, G. Huntley Humphreys and Herbert
Hossler. Tea was poured by Mrs. Geisler,
Mrs. Richard Allen, Mrs. Markel and Mrs.
CAPACITY CROWD AT FERNDALE
Dance Numbers Prove Popular at
Initial Spring Program
Ferndale High School's combined music-
al organizations last night won the plaudits
of a capacity crowd with the presentation
of their first spring concert in the new high
Given in place of the annual operetta.
the concert proved one of the rnost enjoy-
able musical entertainments offered at the
school in some time.
Variety was provided by the groups
participating in the program, including the
boys' glee club, girls' glee club, mixed
chorus, the orchestra, band, Swing Bees, a
girls trio, instrumental trio and a dance
chorus. W rr , O . un. , n. , ,mm
The dance number, an Armenian ballet,
presented by a group of girls in colorful
costumes, proved one of the outstanding at-
tractions of the evening, while another
dance number, given during a tableau de-
picting an "Italian Street Scene," also was
The girls trio received a big hand for
its rendition of three numbers, while the
mixed chorus did exceptionally well in
singing "Cherubim Song" by Bortniansky.
A humorous note was added to the pro-
gram with the presentation of a comical
pantomime by Richard Roberts and Betty
Grace Griffith during the number "Soldier,
Soldier." As a special feature, Iohn Hamil-
ton gave a demonstration of baton twirling.
The band concluded the program in a
striking manner by playing five numbers,
including Sousa's "The Thunderer," and the
"Star Spangled Banner," during which the
American Flag was displayed. The entire
program was prepared and directed by
Homer Baker, music supervisor.
Today I am a Freshman! It is very nice
except I am afraid of the Seniors, they are
so big and terrifying. I study English, al-
gebra, civics and science. My teacher said
to spend at least three hours in studying
so I do. Everybody thinks we are green
but we know different.
Since I have last written to you, I've
grown two inchesp had a permanent and am
a Sophomore. I'm quite important because
I spoke to a Senior. We are having lots of
fun-we only study an hour and a half.
So long now, mother said its time I go to
bedg its nearly two o'clock in the morning.
My Dear Diary:
Life is wonderful. Guess what? We only
have to study a half hour now. There seems
to be epidemic of "mumps" and even some
of the Iuniors were childish enough to get
them. Will they never grow up? Goodnight
now I must put curlers in my hair.
Today I was walking down the hall
and when several Freshmen saw me they
ran. Suddenly I realized-I'm a Senior!
Everyone is eagerly awaiting the Reception.
It's one of those swanky affairs that only
comes once in a lifetime. What fun! Study?
NEVER. I'm a Senior!
O LITTLE LA UGHS
A patient is a person who is being
nursed back to health and who:
Complains that the medicine is vile
and isn't doing him a bit of good.
Thinks it would help if somebody were
to rub his back and then charges the rubber
with brutality and a deliberate intention to
take all the skin off.
Asks to be read to and, soon after the
reading starts, drops off into a sleep.
Demands that the radio placed next his
bed, monopolizes it for the whole of the
day, and then fusses because the programs
are so awful.
Wants to talk while the thermometer is
in his mouth, and when it registers a normal
temperature, insists that it must be broken.
Suspects that members of the family are
trying to slip out of the house and leave
him to meet his end alone.
Says the food tastes awful and that they
show very little imagination in planning
his meals. "Stewed apricots again. Ugh,
Take them away."
Warns members of the family to wait
until they get sick and see how much sym-
pathy they get from him.
Doesn't feel like drinking the ginger
ale and asks if they will bring him a
chocolate milk instead.
Reproaches them for their indifference
and says that the next time he is taken ill
he is going straight to a hospital where they
have pretty nurses to look after you.
Denies that he is unreasonable and
protests that he knows of no one who under
similar circumstances, would behave as well
as he does.
In short, exercises so little restraint over
his feelings that one may well inquire how
such a person ever acquired, of all things,
the name of "patient,"

hostess offers you rich, dark brown fruit cake, if you were honest
you might respond in this manner:
sb Madam, so far as I am concerned, you might as well offer
as me a combination of carbolic acid, potassium, strychnine and
sb other subtle and deadly poisons.
Q Iudging from your kindly and compassionate expression, you
9 do not realize that once this cake has entered my system I will
almost immediately suffer a loss of appetite. This will be followed
by an uneasy feeling in the neighborhood of my midriff.
I will retire to bed, but sleep will be fitful, accompanied
by unpleasant dreams in which I will be chased by bandits and
Wake myself and my wife crying out for help. I will then get up
9 and mix a brew of hot water and bicarbonate of soda-a
Ga remedy I detest above all others-and gulp it down.
sb I will arise tomorrow morning feeling that I have lost my rv
G2 dearest friend. One look at the spareribs at breakfast will bring '
distress and I will inquire of the cook if it will be too much
