For his friendship and service to the students at
Ferndale, the Class of 1941 takes this opportunity
to express its esteem for Mr. Grant Custer, teacher
of science and mathematics. His humorous, likeable
manner has earned him the respect and cooperation
of all those who know him. The Class will always
remember Mr. Custer as a true friend.

Planning for our future education
The Board of Education is made up of five faithful
Ferndale citizens. Confronted with many problems,
this group is intrusted with the care and policies of
the school system, the selection of teachers, the yearly
budget for the continued operation of the school, as
Well as executing other odds and ends which make
up a complete modern school program. The board,
consisting of Mr. Edward Bell, who serves as presi-
dent, Mr. Harry E. Ieroy, vice-president, Mr. Harry
Miller, treasurer, Mr. Harry B. Schrock, secretary, and
Mr. Orin C. Naugle, realizes the importance of keep-
ing in step with the times and has done all Within
its power to make our school advance in education.
As We study in modernly equipped school rooms in
one of the most up-to-date school buildings in this
district and are instructed by competent teachers, We
often forget that we should probably not have these
advantages if our school board were not so pro-
gressive. To the board members who merit much
praise, we express our appreciation for the things they
have accomplished in our behalf.

HERE COMES . . . a parade of youth
young, gay and courageous!
IOHN ARMSTRONG . . . "The sport I was interested
in was football: although I did not play, I liked to
see our team play. When we won, I was happy but,
when we lost, I just said, 'Well, some one had
to lose and our team can't win all the time.' "
ROBERT BARNES . . . "My plan after graduation
is simple and complete. The steel mills are offering
apprenticeships to those who are willing to learn.
Within a few years one can work in these mills or
others, as long as one has learned his trade."
DAVID BEIHI. . . . "The most interesting thing in
school is chemistry class. ln it theory and prac-
tice are combined making it the most worthwhile
science subject for the average student. The re-
sulting good convinces me that chemistry should
be taken by everyone." '
EDITH BELTZ . . . "As I have always been very much
interested in all phases of typing, it is my desire
to become a good, reliable typist for some firm.
I am also interested in taking shorthand notes,
and transcribing all types of material."
RUDOLPH BELTZ . . . "After I graduate, I shall try
to find a job in the mills. It I do not find any suc-
cess in doing this, I shall join the Coast Artillery
of the United States."
SARA BLAIR . . . "Since we haven't a written state-
ment from Sara herself, we are not, able to give
any information concerning our former classmate
who left school during the year for marriage."
IAMES BLOUGH . . . "There are several vocations
which interest me. Drafting, farming, construction
work and truck driving are among them. I choose
several because I think that one alone is not
enough. Disqualification in one vocation lets open
chances for another."
PAUL BLOUGH . . . "The thing I will miss most
after graduation will be my classmates. I have
found them to be very fond friends as well as
good company. There will be many new friends
after graduation but few so good as these."
EMMA BOERSTLER . . . "After graduation I plan to
rest during the summer and then begin to work
again. Although financial problems may alter my
plans, I expect to enter Cambria-Rowe Business
College and then seek a secretarial position. My
greatest ambition is to travel."
BETTY BRANT . . . "I have go en much good from
my high school years. Having made many new
acquaintances, school has helped me to under-
stand and get along with other people. Through
the knowledge which I have obtained, I feel bet-
ter prepared for the future."
DAVID BOYER . . . "After graduation I intend to
work during the summer and go to college in the
fall of the same year. It is my intention to study
medicine and surgery, although at what school
has not been decided as yet."
MARIAN BRANTHOOVER . . . "What I will miss
most after I have graduated are my classmates and
teachers. For, it may be the last time I shall see
them. My four years with them will always be
pleasant memories to look back upon."
WILLIAM BRUCE . . . "Football is not just a game
of rough and tumble. It requires a sound body, the
ability to think, and above all-courage. Sportsman-
ship and leadership are important factors. One
learns to take part in a contest, and to participate
with other contestants." P
MAY CARLMARK . . . "I will miss most the com-
panionship of my fellow students. After four years
of close association it is rather a shock to realize
that I will probably never see three-fourths of my
classmates again. These friendships will truly be a
loss to me."
VIRGINIA CARNEY . . . "After graduation I intend
to go to Cambria-Rowe Business School. When my
course is finished, I intend to obtain a position in
an office. Later, I wish to travel through the western
and southern parts of the United States."
One look leads you to see . . .
DONALD CHAPPELL . . . "My plans after gradu-
ation are to become employed in some kind of civil
service work, since it is pleasant work, pays above
average, gives vacations and sick leaves with pay,
pensions, equal opportunity for advancement, with
no preference given, and no lay offs."
DONALD CLAWSON . . . "After I graduate I will
miss the friends I have associated with these four
years. Taking part in school activities such as ath-
letics, dances, movies will be a memory. The friend-
ly teachers who helped me graduate will be missed
HELEN CLAWSON . . . "I would like to have a
job in an office. After I graduate I am going to
come back to school for a post-graduate course if
possible, then when better prepared in my work
I plan to go to Cambria-Rowe."
ALBERT CRUICKSHANK . . . "After graduation my
plans are to apply for a position with a substan-
tial firm. The money thus gained is to be desig-
nated in a fund which in the future shall enable
me to attend college at least one year."
WILLIAM CLAWSON . . . "After graduation in May
there is a position waiting at a local dairy store
serving ice cream to the public. In the mean time
I'll try to find a position as an apprentice machinist
or draitsman to learn a good trade. I may, too,
try for a government civil service position."
KENNETH DANIELS . . . "Because of the training
football gives one, it interests me most. It trains
the mind and muscles to co-ordinate as a unit.
Another advantage is the rest it gives the mind
from other work which requires the use of the
ROBERT DICK . . . "When I graduate from high
school I would like to enter the photography pro-
fession. One reason for this is that I became in-
terested in photography in the school club and
liked itg and, in addition, it presents so many good
TI-IELMA DAVIS . . . "After graduation, I shall miss
the fun I've had in school, also the friends I've
made during the past twelve years, the clubs I
belonged to, and, most of all, the teachers that
patiently taught us our studies."
ARTHUR ELLIOTT . . . "The classes interested me
as a pupil the most because of the subjects chosen:
they were most helpful and interesting. The teach-
ers discussed in classes problems of interest, help-
ing us along in life and putting us on the right way
MARY FALSONE . . . "I plan, after graduation, to
find a job connected with office work. In school
this was one of my favorite activities, and I would
like to continue along the same work in the busi-
ness world where I hope to find success."
WILLIAM ESCH . . . "My plans after graduation are
to go to work for six or seven months and possibly
save some money to help towards going to school.
I plan to study art because it is the only subject
that I am particularly interestd in. After doing this,
I intend to enter the commercial art field."
GRACE FALSONE . . . "Movies have interested me
in high school, because they gave me a chance to
be free from school work. Movies, besides being en-
tertaining, are also educational and of value to
everyone that sees them."
OLIVE GILBERT . . . "After graduation I plan to
spend the summer at home during which I will
keep my eyes open for a position. If, at the end of
summer, I am not satisfied, I shall go to school
most likely to study art."
IEAN FOLTZ . . . "High school years are the hap-
piest period in your life. Those free hours before
and after school when you conversed with others,
the many social activities and the friendships ac-
quired are fond memories. After graduating you
grow away from those you have known for four
DOROTHY FITZGIBBON . . . "The most pleasurable
and profitable way to spend time is reading. A
piece of writing can hold up to a reader the hap-
piness, the temptations, the sorrows and ideals of
others. Writings are the connection between the
old world and the new. Reading is knowledge."

LEROY HALL . . . "Before I came to high school I
was very self-conscious and could not look at any
one: therefore, I hated school and had few friends.
High school has changed this a little so that now
I have more friends and enjoy school."
FRANCIS HEILMANN . . . "My plans after I finish
school are to get a job, save money, buy a motor-
cycle and have S100 with which to go to Florida
for work. If I can't get anything there, I shall
come home for work, to save to go to California."
ROBERT HERSHISER . . . "A boy should at least
obtain a high school education, even if college is
beyond him. It has helped me to overcome shyness,
weaknessesg now, I am better prepared to enter
the higher manhood to which I am entitled."
PEARL HESALTINE . . . "I feel that I have benefited
a great deal by going to high school. While at-
tending school I not only gained knowledge but I
learned to mix and mingle with people at ease. Both
my intelligence and friendships have been in-
creased by attending high school."
BETTY GRACE GRIFFITH . . . "To be a worthy
nurse is my life's aim. To be able to .help others
through pain is ample reward for difficult work
done to truly qualify me for credit due one who
helps his fellow men."
IAMES HINDMAN . . . "The most interesting litera-
ture I have read in high school was taught in
English class. We have read many interesting
books written by many of the best authors. In class
we have many of the best fiction along with non-
GLENN HOFFMAN . . . "I have always looked for-
ward to the time when I would kecome a Senior
and graduate. It really seems a very long time but
now I realize that my years in school were the
best years of my life."
IANET HOOD . . . "After I have graduated from high
school, I am planning to attend Cambria-Rowe
Business College. I am going to study shorthand
and typewriting. I also hope to study and learn
the operation of some machines that are now
used in office work."
IOSEPHINE HOMOLA . . . nlmmediatey after gradu-
ating I shall place my application everywhere pos-

Since this is my ambition, I feel that with plenty

BLAIR HILDEBRAND . . . "Football interested me
most in high school because it consumed most
of my leisure time after school. It helped improve
my physical makeup and mental alertness. It has
caused me to know more people and more people
to know me, and to build a very close relationship
with my teammates and coaches."
MIRIAM HOUSER . . . "All through my life, as I
can remember, my plans and ambitions have been
to be a secretary. In preparing for the work that
I hope to do, I have taken two years each in
bookkeeping, shorthand, and typing."
IACK HUFMAN . . . "What interested me most in
high school was football. It was a sport that de-
veloped a stronger physique and a more refined
mental attitude. Almost every boy, who participated
in this game, found it enjoyable and interesting."
CURTIS HUNT . . . "Of greatest interest to me dur-
ing my high school education was the inter-class
sports. From this activity I learned that only team
work can win a game. Secondly, I learned how to
win and lose-the greatest problem we face today."
IOANN HURRELL . . . "What I plan to take up after
graduating is beauty culture. From what I have
read and learned from other people, this field is
comparatively full. This, however, does not dis-
courage me because I feel that if I am good enough
there will be room for me."
IOLANA KERN . . . "Since I have taken a commer-
cial course in high school, my plan after graduation
is to work as a stenographer or typist. If this is
not available, I desire to work in the sewing fac-
tory or as a clerk."
A CHALLEY GE! aim for the best today
ROSE KIRCHNER . . . "I shall miss many things, but
most important are my friends. I see them every
day, but after graduation we may never see each
other again. I have found out what true friendship
is and will miss my 'pals' sincerely."
NANCY KLEPACK . . . "The Personality Club has
been a very interesting club to me. Discussions be-
tween the girls and talks in the club have been a
help because they gave many helpful points on
things which girls like to know about and which
also help in cultivating a pleasing personality."
THARON KNEPPER . . . "After graduation I would
like to be a stenographer. For the past four years,
I have prepared for this kind of work. After work-
ing a few years I'd like to travel through western
United States and then visit South America."
IENNIE KOKORUDA . . . "Due to the incompletion
of her school year, Iennie has not furnished us
with information of her future."
SYLVIA KUMERDAY . . . "I have obtained much
good from high school. If I had not attended high
school, I would not be able to fulfill my ambitions,
since a high school education is necessary to ob-
tain a job as a secretary or clerk, the two vocations
which interest me."
RICHARD LEVERGOOD . . . "The thing that inter-
ested me most in high school was the sports that
the school furnished us: and the most important was
football, playing the game for the thrill of it and
the way that it builds up your body."
SYLVIA LIKAR . . . "During my four years in high
school, I have become acquainted with many stu-
dents, some of whom I may never see again. I al-
ways have had a nice time with them and really
will miss them once we have graduated."
WILLIAM MARKEL . . . "I believe I have learned
much in high school. The lessons acquired in school
among which the functions of nature in science
courses along with the practical courses will serve
me well in later life."
MARY MAYSTROVICH . . . "Friends are what I'11
miss mostly after graduation. After we are through
school it will be hard to gain friends as close as
those of our classmates and teachers. We do not
appreciate the advantage of school until it is
almost too late."
IACK MELVIN . . . "The Hi-Y was the most in-
teresting activity I had in high school. Since we
had our own club room and used the gymnasium,
there were many recreation facilities, besides the
teaching of development of character and ways of
CHARLES MILLER . . . "I plan after graduation to
try to get a job in the mill and if I don't suc-
ceed in the first five months after graduation: I
shall try to join the army or navy."
MARY ANNA MILLER . . . "Now that I am leaving
high school I regard people and things differently.
I realize now the importance of friends. The work
has helped me conquer myself and my tasks which
are behind me and those yet to come."
AUDREY MOSEBARGER . . . "I have always said I
will be glad when I finish high school, but when
I am out I am sure I will miss those swell assem-
blies and movies, our Girl Reserve parties, cheer-
ing at the football games and, most of all, I shall
miss the many friends I made."
DORIS MURRAY . . . "The most outstanding things
I shall miss when I leave Ferndale High are the
extra curricular activities which have taught me
that I have a place in this world, and my friends
who are a part of my cherished memories."
AMELIA NAHTIGAL . . . "Entrance to high school
is a big moment in anyone's life, but especially in
mine. Being ignorant of many things, much have I
learned and added to my scanty store of knowl-
edge. My ambition is to learn and to do better
in the future."

IT' A TIP! . . . something to remember
that old gang of mine. .. O FOOLlN'!
DONALD OHS . . . "During my four years in high
school football interested me most. The heated con-
flicts which arose in the different games we played,
playing the game for all it was worth, and for
the way it helped build one in mind and body,
made football my favorite."
PHYLLIS OTTO . . . "It always has been in my mind
to follow something in the medical profession. Since
I am not financially able to take up a medical
course, I will try to be a nurse which will possibly
fulfill my desire."
IAMES PATCH . . . "Once again Ferndale stepped
into the limelight with its dramatical accomplish-
ment, the "Kind Lady." The brilliant characteriza-
tion of this drama by the players has received great
appraisal from everyone. The play, being very
highly dramatical, was a great task to undertake,
but I enjoyed it."
CARLO PERACCHIO . . . "My plan after gradua-
tion is to seek employment in the mills. Anything
will do to start. But later I would like a job as time-
keeper or paymaster, some job of this sort which
is not dirty and pays a livable wage."
ROBERT PETZ . . . "When I graduate I would like
to work for the government, by joining the navy.
Our country is so big and strong and our govern-
ment is so secure, I'm sure I will make good if I
get this opportunity."
ELDON PITTMAN . . . "There are many things I
like to do, but the one I like most is conversing
with other people. I like to discuss matters with
them on any subject and to make it interesting.
While mingling with other people one builds up a
personality which is a great asset to your future
KATHRYN POLIPPO . . . "To me, the most interest-
ing and enjoyable pastime is dancing. It seems to
thrill and impress me more than any activity I have
ever entered. Owing to the small amountljof knowl-
edge I possess of dancing, as a career it would not
impress me, but as a hobby it enchants me."
DORIS POLLOCK . . . "Through my father's aid, I
may have a position waiting for me if I can prove
myself worthy of it. It is a position as stenographer.
The course which I took in school prepared me for
this type of work."
BETTY PRITTS . . . "After graduation my plans are
to try to secure a position in an office, but if there
is no place for me in the business world, I will go
to New York and take up the study of dancing so
I will be able to teach other people this art."
DEAN RHODES . . . "Playing in the orchestra is an
extra curricular activity which has been of great
value to me. It helped to improve my musical and
mental ability. By doing this I am able to raise
for myself a higher standard in the musical world."
GARNET RHODES . . . "I have learned the value of
a pleasing personality. This was accomplished most-
ly through the Personality Club. A very specific
study of helpful mottos were exchanged. This one
has helped me, 'although you can't have the best
in life make the best of what you have."'
GLADYS RIPPLE . . . "I have been planning for the
last four years to become a nurse after I have
finished school. Although I have been told it is hard
work, I am still determined to be one."
HELEN ROSTOCHAK . . . "My plans after gradua-
tion are not many. I have been thinking of the many
jobs available, and the one that appeals to me
the greatest is to become a clerk in one of the stores
in our vicinity. Therefore, I am sure I can be a
success in this field."
BETTYQRUMMEL . . . "After graduation I will miss
the fine friendships gained while in school. We
learn more each day by conversing with others,
and also through our teachers, who are patient and
willing to help us in their kind way. These are
DEAN RUMMEL . . . "After graduation and until
August 20, 1941 I will have to work on a part time
job. When I'm eighteen, I will apply for a job in
the mill or in a garage, since mechanics is my
Hail to our colors, the BLACK and GOLD
IOSEPH RYCHAK . . . "I think the most interesting
vocations are electricity, radio, and mechanics, which
contain an absorbing interest and a potential source
of practical knowledge. Here are needed trained,
ambitious, individuals to supply new improvements
and developments, and to add to our daily com-
LEIGHTON RUMMEI. . . . "The vocation that interests
me most is mechanical drawing. It is simple and
there is a large field for employment. More men
are needed to make plans for machines. Mechanical
drawing is the subject in which I am most inter-
ested and that I like the best."
IOSEPHINE SCAVUZZO . . . "One of the things that
I am going to miss the most after graduation is my
friends. It almost breaks my heart to think that we
may never meet again, unless by mere luck we
happen to run into each other. After graduation
there are new and different fields of activities which
we must all be ready to perform, and here is
where We must all depart, for better or for worse."
VIVIAN SCHWEITZER . . . "High school gave me
many memories which I shall never forget. Even
though work discouraged me at times there was
always someone to cheer me. I can truthfully say
the happiest four years of my life were spent in
WILLIAM SELL . . . "I plan to work with my father
after graduation. After working with him for a short
time, I would like to take a course in aviation which
has always been one of my pet hobbies."
ANNA MAE SHULL . . . "The most enjoyable part of
my high school life has been my Girl Reserve mem-
bership. Promoting many friendships, it really was
worthwhile and constructive because I was taught
to help others. Yes, being a Girl Reserve was the
RUTH SIVITS . . . "My first plan after graduation is
to obtain a job in some down-town store. If this is
impossible I am likely to take up the beauty trade
or personnel work. To work among people is my
MARY FLORENCE SNYDER . . . "Have I gotten any
good from high school? I certainly have. In Fern-
dale High I was taught sportsmanship, leadership,
to be individualistic in my thinking aside from the
regular course. High school has undoubtedly made
me a better individual."
ETHEL SPORY . . . "My future plans after gradua-
tion are: first, to take a two-year pre-nursing course:
then, to go in training for three years in the hos-
pital, hoping to be a graduate nurse and to con-
tinue further in this field."
RICHARD SPOTZ . . . "The photography club is an
activity which I have learned about and I think will
help me in later life. Photography today is seen on
battle fields, in newspapers, picture telling books,
air views and many other things. In choosing this
activity I think I will not stop at what I learned in
school but try to learn more."
MARY LOU SWARTZ . . . "Mary Lou left us in the
middle of the year to tie the nuptial knot of
FRANK STURM . . . "The xnost interesting vocation
to me is the repairing of cars. Car repairing is
going to stay here for quite a while. After the first
of April, the motor companies stop making cars.
Almost everyone will get his old car repaired then."
LEROY THIEL . . . "What interested me most in
school was movies. To give a movie in school gives
you some amusement. But the picture isn't all of
the movie idea. Movies take time, therefore, one
misses a couple classes the week of the movies."
IOHN TODHUNTER . . . "With all of Ferndale's out-
standing activities, the thing I will miss most is the
spirit. Everyone at our school does his best, or tries
very, hard to make a thing gop as a rule, things go
over with a bang."
FRED THURAU . . . "After I graduate I would like to
take up forestry, but seeing that the college cur-
riculum is too rigid for me to enter, I cannot enter
this as a profession. State College and Mont Alto
are the only colleges in Pennsylvania that carry
forestry as a course, and their fee is too high for
the amount I can afford."

LESLIE VAN HORNE . . . "Aside from acquiring
knowledge, high school prepares one for the world.
Usually graduates don't go to college, thus the pur-
pose of high school is the development of person-
ality. This enables a person to get along with man-
kind in the world. When a graduate has not
learned the laws of life, he has missed the purpose
of high school."
DEAN VARNER . . . "I am going to work on the
farm until I can get work somewhere else. What
I would like to do most is drive a truckp later mak-
ing a tour through some of the states of the United
DORIS WARING . . . "Graduation is the cause of
many separations and it brings about many fare-
wells. I will miss the associations with the fellow-
students. To leave them will mean that I am going
to lose many hours happily spent with them."
BENIAMIN WACKER . . . "I have acquired much
from high school. It is true, I could not replace the
President of this United States but I have learned
the fundamental principles of living. It is my belief
that every citizen should have knowledge of these
principles in order that Democracy may flourish."
ROBERT WARSING . . . "I believe I'll miss my friends
the most alter graduation. I'll miss the good times we
had in the morning and at dinner time. Many of
them I'll never see again and some I'll see only
once in awhile."
BERNICE WRIGHT . . . "During my high school
years the Girl Reserves have interested me very
much. Having had an active part in this activity
taught me how to assume responsibilities and get
along with other girls, younger and older than
CHARLES ZIMMERMAN . . . "I have gained much
from high school. One of the most important things
I have learned is how to get along with people.
I have learned the value of good sportsmanship,
something that is very much needed today and
that many people lack. Other things were also

in the book of time We find ourselves "green
Freshies" standing in awe of our superiors-
the dignified upperclassmen . . . We took
the usual initiation into all the school affairs
and determined to make our places Well es-
tablished. As "Freshies" we'll never forget
how hard it was to get to school early-ima-
gine 8:00 o'clock! After the first year of
learning our Way around, we disregarded
our greenish touch and elevated our ranks
to the "Sophs" . . . helped initiate the in-
coming crop of new students . . . really
glad now that We were past that part of
our schooling but still longing to be Juniors
. . . with a year of Work we finally attained
our next goal.
As Iuniors We are a happy-go-lucky

SOPHOMORE CLASS . . . much bigger than
anyone dreamed of . . . but wait till we tell
you about the hits and surprises of this year!
Iust a few months ago, we were the Fresh-
men . . . but now we look down on them as
unimportant "Greenies" and still look up to
the Iuniors and Seniors sheepishly as digni-
fied ideals. The year held much in store for
us . . . struggled through the regular daily
routine of biology, English and history,
fdon't ask me who Socrates was? . . . soon
began participating in nearly all the ac-
tivities of the school . . . showed our colors
and pledged our entire loyalty to our Alma
Mater . . . the males engaged wholeheart-
edly in football, basketball, and volleyball
while the females found active roles in minor
sports, sharing in the interclass basketball
and volleyball leagues. The enthusiastic
students were always packed in the bleach-
ers cheering the school on. We distinguished
ourselves as participants in the social affairs
of the school . . . played a fiddle in the
orchestra, blew a horn in the band, sang
in the glee club, or occupied a chair in the
Hi-Y or Girl Reserve . . . contributed two
lovely majorettes to the band . . . used up
much energy to make the Spring Concert
a success . . . offered services for the Re-
flector and Courier . . . showed our "stuff"
by doing the latest steps on the dance floor
. . . and believe it or not, took the usual
of the SOPH . . .
"flops" at the skating party . . . provided
enthusiastic cheerleaders with vitamin D
plus to lead the screaming mobs . . . never
failed to uphold the educational side by
having strong representatives on the A-B
lists, became less noisy and childish since
our Freshman year . . . many of the teachers
were thankful for this as more than once
we were the cause of many headaches . . .
settled down to a year of hard work al-
though we didn't kill ourself with too much
exerction . . . contributed our share of talent
for the school assemblies . . . slightly felt the
effects of the spring weather-could it be
called "Spring Fever" . . . made a serious
attempt to win the volleyball and basketball
leagues . . . enjoyed the weekly assemblies
and approved the movie program of the
school . . . thanks for the school holiday
while a few of our loyal teachers signed
their "John Henry" on the conscription list
. . . our boys went for spring baseball in a
big way and took advantage of the rec-
reation and pleasure it provided . . . car-
ried our candy boxes for several weeks and
sold nickel bars to earn enough dough for
our Iunior and Senior expenses. Maybe we
were a hit, after all! But, still, we are
anxiously looking toward next year with
hope and expectation-thus occupying the
seats of the full-fledged classmen.

"FRE HIES"...take a tip from
your superiors who know the ropes.
MR. FRANK KELLER, SUPERVISING PRIN-
CIPAL, MAKES THESE SUGGESTIONS TO
YOU: "Every member of the 1944 Ferndale
High School Class should have acquired
from his Freshman schooling an unshakable
faith in self, a firmer moral standard, and a
keener satisfaction in living agreeably with
The continuation of these acquirements
aids further educational growth. Obtaining
an education is a slow process. Knowledge
is not acquired as easily as a new coat. It
might be compared to your body's acquisi-
tion of a new skin which requires a seven-
The many classroom discussions, the
various oral and written reports, the re-
quired and selected courses of the cur-
riculum are only vehicles that help bring
education to you. Also worthwhile plays,
athletics and appreciation of nature help
you along the educational highway. Music
will also aid you. You should learn to dis-
tinguish between music as mere motion, and
music as a mover of souls.
Whether you know it or not, you are
a stockholder of civilization. Therefore, press
on in such a way as to neither diminish the
capital stock nor to reduce the dividend."
WILLIAM BRUCE, SENIOR CLASS PRESI-
DENT SAYS, "As a Senior, I wish to give to
my underclassmen, the "Freshies", many of
the special advantages and joys received
from athletics . . . Football, a major sport,
trains the body physically and mentally . . .
Although long and Weary hours of practice
are required, each one in itself is different
and fascinating . . . courage and more
courage is needed . . . A successful team
is made only through the determination of
its players . . . each player must possess
high spirit . . . In order to be a good athlete
you must work hard in the fundamentals
during your four years of training . . . these
practical rules are applied to all other

OUR SOPHOMORE PRESIDENT, LUKE
STRAVASNIK, STATES: "Freshies, do you
want to be popular? If so, you should take
an active part in all the school functions.
Be sociable. Social activity plays a large
part in your life as a studentp it develops
cooperation, initiative and leadership . . .
gives opportunities for self expression and
creative work. Don't fail to benefit from the
amusements and good times you can obtain.
Whatever your tastes and likes are, Fern-
dale has a club or organization to satisfy
you. Come on, "Freshies", be a good fellow
and step right out next year . . . follow your
upperclassmen and get into the swing of
things. There's a good time in store for each
of you, everything imaginable, but you must
take the initiative."

The editors give you the scoops of the year.
EDITORS . . . bursting with news
COURIEB . . . What's the excitement?-the
Courier is out! Reportorial assignments,
deadlines, page layout, copy, and mimeo-
graphing-these are familiar expressions to
those persons interested in journalism who
voluntarily devote their time to publishing
a magazine each month for the school.
For the students the paper performs the
service of training in journalistic writing
and layouts, and of training in executive
abilities. For the school the paper sum-
marizes the educational, athletic, and social
events and informs the public concerning
the progress and activities of the school.
Aims for the present year included
wider and better news coverage, more
artistic page layouts, fthanks to Olive Gil-
bertl, personal humor, wider sports cover-
age, with a special endeavor to add in-
dividuality and human interest throughout.
We added a new but well known gossip
page called, "Under the Hat" which is
written by that mysterious person called

planning, and working have gone into the
compiling of this, the l94l edition of the
Reflector which we now present for your
approval. We have attempted to present for
you an accurate record of the many experi-
ences of the school year, 1940-4l, which you
have enjoyed because you shared an in-
timate part in them. We have endeavored
to make you the principal theme of our
undertaking. Your activities, from the open-
ing day of school to the last, furnish the
backbone of our production. May you look
back in future years, when your memory
grows a little rusty, and live again with re-
newed enjoyment the years 1940-41 at
A number of changes have been made
this year in the arrangement of the script
material and new informal ideas have been
incorporated in the general layout of the
pages. We hope you enjoy the informality
of this year's edition. A scrap-book section
has been added in place of the usual
business ads. By using a little paste and a
pair of scissors, we want you to file away
all the hundreds of odds and ends you have
collected since you first started to school.
It is the sincere wish of each member
of the staff that the Reflector of l94l will
be a real pleasure to all its readers.

numbers . . . part of the group organized
a swing chorus which sang only swing num-
bers . . . really, it was remarkable how well
the entire group of boys mastered four part
harmony! . . . in fact, found enjoyment in
working out on such favorites as "Stout-
hearted Men," "Home on the Range,"
"Away to Rio," "Blow the Man Down" and
"Standin' in the Need of Prayer" . . . to the
beat of Mr. Baker's baton, aided by the
sweet smiles of Mary Anna Miller at the
piano, the boys could often be heard har-
monizing to their hearts' content . . . of
course there were a few tainted notes which
were not called for in the music . . . the
group is comparatively small, but none the
less popular and efficient. The spirit is there,
and they sing! sing! sing!
The year's program was climaxed with
the "Spring Concert" in which the Boys'
Chorus held a prominent part and shared in
putting the task across as a job well done
. . . nice going boys!
CHORUS . . . Mr. Baker gives the songsters a work-out in
GIRLS' CHORUS . . . there is a time when
everyone finds joy and pleasure in forget-
ting the daily routines of life and lifting their
voices in some old favorite . . . do you
remember how that old gang of yours
almost raised the roof, bellowing at the top
of their voices, "School Days" or "Home on
the Range"? Anyway, eighty-seven young
voices from all classes met every Wednes-
day around the piano in front of the audi-
torium and continued such a start. There
were many favorites among the girls, but
"Southern Memories", "Indian Love Call",
and "Tea for Two" were the hits of the year
. . . The period the club meets, zestful and
clear voices could be heard vocalizing to
various types of songs, everything from
classics, sacred and folk numbers to the
more current popular hits. During the year
the organization took part in a special
Thanksgiving Assembly program, which
helped the students catch the spirit of the
occasion, and also prepared, in cooperation
with the Boys' Chorus, numbers for the Spring
Concert, which, mid much enthusiasm, went
off as a roaring success. Under the direction
of Mr. Baker, the girls have learned to ex-
press themselves more clearly in music as
well as acquiring a more sincere apprecia-
tion of the singing art. To each member of the
group, this year's training has
been extremely helpful and
valuable-not only have we
learned new songs, but we
have a c q u i r e d additional
knowledge in the fundamen-
tals of correct singing. The
chief contribution of the Girls'
Chorus has been giving plea-
sure to other people . . . through
the untiring efforts of Mr. Baker
this year's program has been a
big success and a creditable
improvement over past years.

CLOTHING CLUB . . . let us peep into the
sewing room and see what its inhabitants
are doing . . . the clicking of shining nee-
dles, flying of busy fingers, wisps of soft yarn,
and a display of brightly colored dresses
warns us that the Clothing Club is really
"going to town" . . . of course all work and
no play would be quite monotonous and
contrary to the girls' idea of an interesting
out-of-class activity . . . in contrast, anyone
could soon see that much time was spent
in gabbing and chatting between the
stitches . . . we wonder what the girls found
to talk so much about!
The club accomplished much during the
year . . . The beginners were taught the
basic stitches and then made samples. Many
of the girls have made useful and beautiful
articles, such as blouses, skirts, dresses and
jumpers . . . We must congratulate the girls
on their ideas of design and style as they
really were in step with the times. The club
taught each girl to be practical in her selec-
tion of clothing and to design new clothing
to suit her body in the most stylish manner
. . . All in all the organization had a very
successful and useful year under the guid-
ance of Miss Lichtenfels.

PERSONALITY CLUB . . . every girl wants
to know the answer to this question, "How
can I improve my appearance and personal-
ity?" . . . for this purpose, approximately
sixty girls turned out at the beginning of the
school year, anxious to learn the secrets of
charm and poise. The year's program got
underway with much enthusiasm and fea-
tured many highlight attractions during the
term . . . Mrs. Munro, an instructor from
"Nick's Beauty Academy" and Miss Adams,
from "I-Iammonds", gave lectures and dem-
onstrations to show the proper care of the
hair, skin and teeth . . . through these inter-
esting activities many worthwhile hints and
tips were suggested that each girl could
apply to improving her own individual self
. . . Under the direction of Miss Wonder, the
club adviser, the members studied a series
of articles on "Tips to the Teens" which
were educational and practical to everyone
. . . Then, too, we learned to be cheerful in
order to win friends and influence people,
to know and use good manners and proper
etiquette tpardon me, no, thank you!l
Clothing is an important part of one's per-
sonality . . . choosing the proper color, style,
and design has a definite relation to in-
dividual make-up . . . Here's a hint!-watch

DRAMATIC CLUB . . . "Lights!" "Curtains!"
"Lines!" . . . "No, no, no!-put more expres-

sayings of directors behind the scenes. Or-
ganized for the purpose of developing hid-
den talent, overcoming stage fright and
learning to express thoughts clearly and dis-
tinctly, the dramatic club enables students
to help themselves more advantageously
for social living. For the weekly meetings,
two members of the group planned the pro-
gram in which the entire club took part . . .
presented short plays, dramatized parts of
"Merchant of Venice", recited poems and
tongue twisters and put on an assembly
program as a highlight of the year . . . in
fact, everyone really had a good time and
many happy mo-

STUDENT COUNCIL . . . an organization
composed solely of students with the pur-
pose of supplying a finely adjusted link be-
tween the administration of the school and
the student body.
Membership is divided among the class-
es in a way calculated to afford the greatest
possible benefit. Each home room in the
building elected representatives making a
total of fourteen in the entire organization.
Under the direction of Mr. Hill, faculty ad-
viser of the group, the council met to discuss
such problems that came before the school
from time to time.
After the election of lack Hufman as
president, the council settled down to busi-
ness and put their views to Work in regard
to school problems. The various representa-
tives carried back to their home rooms the
information they had gathered at these
meetings and in this way important an-
nouncements reach every pupil.
Since the beginning of its meetings in
October, Ferndale's Student Council has
been thoughtfully and thoroughly studying
the problems which concern the school.
Among the many things the members have
done this year are: arranged for cheering
sections at the football games, instructed
first floor students to leave by Clay Street
side exit to avoid congestion at cafeteria,
listed rules for behavior in auditorium, urged
students to keep our building looking new
by keeping halls clear of paper and other
scrap, arranged for the decoration of two
Christmas trees on school ground, enabled
students to sit Wherever they please at bas-
ketball games, and organized the subscrip-
tion campaign for the 1941 Reflector . . .
under the direction of our capable officers,
this has been a valuable experience for all.

Boy Scouts are now training in scout-
craft and outdoor lore for any sort of emer-

other services connected with emergencies.
At camp and on hikes, through games
and other attractive activities, the scouts are
learning what to do in cases of crisis and
how to help other people at all times . . .
Scouting is doing its part to teach the

Displaying impressive early season
form, the Iackets routed the Shade Town-

Point Stadium, 45-U. The Iackets took quick
advantage of an early break to tally a
touchdown in the first minute of play, and
then rolled up a top-heavy score until the
last period when the Shade boys held the
local reserves and put on their only scoring
In defeating DuBois the following week
the Stingers displayed a mighty combina-
tion of power, speed and open football in
routing an old rival, 38 to U. The Fisher
cohorts from the opening Whistle used a
baffling assortment of aerial tricks against
which DuBois had little to offer in the way
of offensive football. The Iacket line set up
such a stubborn resistance and played their
assigned parts so well that only twice did
the visitors cross the mid stripe during the
first three periods. The only threat of the
night came when DuBois rolled up five first
downs to reach the 1U yard line against
the second-stringers, with Ferndale finally
taking the ball on downs. Touchdowns for
the locals were scored by Bruce, Clawson,
Petz, Ohs, Hufman, Heider. The outstanding
feature of the evening was the manner in
which the line formed a wave of six-man

victory over Ferndale. A recov- TOdh.,m,,

line proved the play which determined the
contest in favor of the Blue and White and
resulted in Ferndale's first defeat in three
The Yellow Iackets came back the fol-
lowing week to rap the Fort Hill gridders
of Cumberland by a 32-6 score. Halfback
Bruce, who ran wild throughout the game
behind spectacular interference, paced the
Stringer's attack as he scored four times.
The Iackets turned in their best perform-
ance of the season to date as they ran wild
at the expense of a heavier team in perfect
machine-like manner. Ferndale needed
only three plays after the opening kickoff
to tally its first touchdown. Behind beauti-
ful six-man interference, Bruce again scored
twice in succession to place the Iackets well
One hundred and
out in front. Ferndale tallied its fourth score
via the air route in the third and fourth
stanza. Ohs took a four-yard heave in the
end zone from Davis for the counter. Late
in the fourth quarter after the Fort Hill threat
was stopped Bruce took a pass from Petz
and galloped 85 yards for the Stinger's final
touchdown. Again the Ferndale forward
wall proved stubborn and difficult to crack
as they turned in a beautiful performance.
The next week found Ferndale hitting
their stride again in defeating Westmont on
the Point Field by a four-touchdown mar-
gin, 27 to U. A 5U-yard run by a back shaken
loose from a midfield scrimmage, a long
forward pass and a couple of backfield
laterals scored four touchdowns for the Yel-
low Iackets to provide the winning margin
over the Hilltop gridders in their annual
clash. Touchdowns were made by Bruce on
a long sideline dash, by Petz on laterals
who romped over the goal line twice, and
Hufman who pulled in a pass from Claw-
son and shot across the goal line. The points
after touchdown were made by Hufman
The Iackets chalked up their fifth vic-
tory in six starts by routing the Portage
Bulldogs, 27-U. Able to gain only a 7-U
lead in three quarters over the Portage High
gridders, the Fishermen tallied three times
in repeated succession in the fourth quar-
ter to turn a close battle into a one-sided
affair. The initial score came after a 53-
yard march and the other three as a result
of two forward pass interceptions and a
blocked punt. The Stingers, shoving their
opponents all over the field as they made
18 first downs to the losers five, had all of
their first-half chances spoiled but got
started in the second half to bag the game
and never to be in serious danger. Much
credit should be given the line for their
strong defensive and offensive work. Huf-

kickoff and then failed to cash in on two
excellent scoring opportunities during the
remainder of the half, while the first-half
whistle erased an almost positive touch-
down. Touchdowns were made by Hufman
and Daniels on passes, Bruce scoring from
scrimmage for the point.
Rallying in the fourth and final period
after trailing their opponents through most
of the game, Ferndale came from behind
to defeat the powerful Red Devils of Ebens-
burg. By virtue of a second-period score,
the county seaters held a seven point edge
over the Iackets until after the last period
was well underway, when Ohs, playing a
bang up game, intercepted a pass to pull
the game out of the fire. At this point, the
Ferndale boys became fighting mad and
put on a tremendous splurge of power
which resulted in a last minute victory. The
entire line carried out their assignments
perfectly for Petz, Bruce, Clawson, and Da-
vis to put the pigskin across twice in less than
three minutes to boost their score to 14-7.

"lost their grip" during the closing minutes
Ferndale eked out a narrow decision,
24 to 23, over the Indiana cagers in the ini-
tial Tri-County Basketball League. With just
about a minute to go and the score dead-
locked at 22-all, Clawson sank a field goal
to give the Stingers their victory. Con-
tinuing in championship form the Iackets
took another step toward successful de-
fense of its Tri-County League title by
handing Ebensburg a 36 to 17 defeat.
Not until the third quarter did the
Stingers start to Click on all five cylinders
to roll up a typical breathtaking lead to
place them in undisputed possession of first
place in the Tri--County League by down-
ing Blairsville, 49 to 19.
Getting off to an early lead, Ferndale
continued its winning streak by topping the
Coal Towners of Windber, 44 to 31. The un-
defeated Iackets, showing lots of early
speed, racked up 14 first-period points to
give them an early advantage.
Ending their game in typical last min-
ute hair-raising fashion, the Iacket passers
came from behind to eke out a one point
margin, 27 to 25, over Altoona. Davis, in a
last moment shot, whipped a perfect ring-

tory came at the expense of Indiana in
another last minute breath-taking margin.
Clawson, on a one-handed pivot shot,
dropped in the Winning goal. With the
Iackets steady pounding throughout the first
halt, Windber started to crack, putting Fern-
dale out in front to cop the Coal Towners,
34 to 27.
The Stingers continued to hold their un-
defeated record by defeating Blairsville,
49 to 23.
Facing one of the district's best basket-
ball combinations, the Iohnstown High Tro-
jans shattered the Stinger's l6 game Win-

Ferndale met Westmont to end its
schedule in the Tri-County League and
downed their old cage rivals 33 to 27 for

looked like anybody's game. In order to
have a well organized league, Bernice
Wright was elected Manager and "care-
taker" ot the seasons records. After the final
toot of the Whistle the Iuniors were seen
doing their "victory dance" as they had
emerged from the fire as "Winners" . . . but
what happened to those Seniors? . . . it
doesn't seem possible! Volleyball as an ex-
tra-curricular activity provides many oppor-
tunities. Many girls have a chance to par-
ticipate either tor the sake of recreation and
pleasure or for the companionship with
others. Some who lack skill in the sport
have an opportunity to learn the game
through participation . . . anyhow, volley-
ball is a popular sport at Ferndale High.

WE STACK OUR
TAKE TO THE
"Gosh!" "These rehearsals drive me mad!" and similar remarks
greeted the advent of this year's class play-"Kind Lady".
Maybe so, nevertheless the play went over with a bang and We
mean just that!
But, We really admit the truth now that it's over, rehearsals
were as much fun as a party. A casual onlooker might have
thought it was anything but play practice at times, yet really
serious Work was put into the production and real talent and
acting came out of it. Much credit is due to Mr. Kuhs for the
fine manner in which he put the play across. To the Wonder-
ment of all, he didn't get seriously angry at any of us, for which
We are also thankful! At times the boisterous spirits of the Seniors
weren't easily controlled While now and then those off stage
sat around and enjoyed their bewilderment oi their gesture of
exhaustation. We shall not forget the amusement We had the
first time We Went over our lines . . . To the players, these are
lasting memories and to us all it meant a very enjoyable evening.
This year's play, "Kind Lady," was a difficult story to pro-
duce a11d the undertaking required long and patient hours of
practice . . . but the cast members were always there, ready
and Willing to give their best to make it one of the best senior
plays at Ferndale.

the ol' zip that is often needed to keep in

School life is hard to describe . . . it is com-

four hundred students, plus the faculty,

epidemic of sweater ornamentsp and finally,

Something smart! ...the newest fads and fancies
Have you noticed the newest spring
fashions? They have a definite patriotic
trend-dresses of red, white, and blueg flag
pins: sailor hats.
Dresses are more tailored this year,
being mostly a shirtwaist type. Cottons and
sharkskins are among the most popular
materials. The most popular colors include
red, white and blue combined for the
patriotic idea and the lighter shades of rose,
blue, yellow and aqua.
Suit coats are long and have a mannish
effect. Tweeds and plaids are the most
popular material for suits.
Hats are taking a more feminine trend.
Flowers cluster on the top of pancake hats
and around the brims of poke bonnets.
Evening dress is also along the more
feminine line. Net, lace and chiffon are most
chic with delicate crepes running a close
second. Colors for evening dress are deli-
cate and include pink, White, and other soft
This year seems to be a year in which
patriotism and femininity will reign. When
has it not been so?

You girls have probably noticed that the boys don't roll
their trouser legs up any more. There is no need for alarm, for
if the girls have fashions and change them, why can't the boys?
Rolled sleeves, that is, sleeves rolled slightly above the Wrist, and
sweaters seem to be in style for the boys now. Did you notice
that the boys are wearing more neckties? When a boy wears a
tie without being coaxed, there is only one reason and that is
there's a girl involved somewhere.
Boys, if you want ideas of what the well-dressed boy should
wear, just look at Ferndale's fashion plate, Leslie Van Horn.
Stylists predict bright colors for men in the spring. Won't Les
Van Horn look positively "too, too divine" in a red coat, blue
pants and a yellow shirt?
Take care, you girls. For too long have you laughed at the
boys never changing fashions. Now you're going to receive some
I'm getting tired of the slow and terrible
bump-bump-sixth period. I can't stand it.
We have to stay in time with it, and that's

I see that screw-driver bump-bump-
bumping on the edge of the blackboard.
Then I see the object for should I say sub-
ject?l of all my misery. He glares at me,
and still the incessant bumping goes on.

And so it goes on. That slow, incessant
bump stays with me all the time. BUMP-

Girls' Chorus in action Swing your pardner
Those boys again The grand finale
SPRING CONCERT . . . comprised of the American Heritage of
Song . . . climaxed the year's work in the music department . . .
supervised by Mr. Baker . . . both girls' and boys' choruses, band,
and swing band participated in special numbers of all kinds . . .
the song "America the Beautiful" served as the theme and basis
for the painting on the scenery so capably done by Robert
Wright, Robert Hesaltine and Charles Hesaltine of the art de-
partment under the supervision of Mr. Boerstler.
Developed over a period of six months the concert proved
a finished performance. Its patriotic note was emphasized near
the end of the program when a girls' trio in evening dress
dropped a musical hint to the effect that those not satisfied with
the way things are done in the U. S. A. had better "Go Back
Where You Belong".

An ironic touch entered the program
when the same trio-Betty Brant, Vivian
Schweitzer and Ruth Sivits-told that "The
Nightengale Sang at Berkely's Square" fin
Londonl when it was more likely that bomb-
ers were falling there.
The program was varied by the appear-
ance of soloists, soldiers, square dancers
and baton twirlers, in addition to the boys'
and girls' choruses, a boys' swing chorus,
the "Dreamers," the Swing Bees and the
Ferndale High School Band. The entire cast
sang and played "God Bless America" as
Dancers and marchers who performed
under a handicap on the crowded stage
were well received. The marchers included
a group of soldiers who appeared during a
mixed chorus rendition of the Civil War
Song. "Tramp! Tramp! Tramp!" They were
joined by Richard Spotz as "Abraham Lin-
coln," whose appearance waked an out-
burst of applause during the number.
Indians and Pilgrims were on the stage
at the beginning of the program, when the
boys' and girls' choruses sang such num-
bers as "Pale Moon," "Indian Love Call,"
and "The Landing of the Pilgrims". The
singing of "Yankee Doodle" by the three
figures made famous in the painting, "The
Spirit of '76". They were joined by the ap-
pearance of George Washington, person-
ified by lack Hufman.
Continuing the personification of the
music, a group of cowboys joined the mix-
ed chorus and the boys' chorus in singing
"Home on the Range". With the singing of
"Oh Susanna," a group of square dancers
appeared on the stage and received hearty
approval from the audience for their out-
standing performance. Further variety was
given to the program by the presentation
of a humorous melodrama entitled "The
Lamp Went Out".
Soloists were lack Schuster, flute:
Ioseph Rosenthalp Charles Trexel, pianog
Leona Koreltz, accordion: Paul Auman,
trumpet and Lois LaBrie, clarinet.
