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.

Then We turn to the intormal routines ot school and present YOUTH'S SOCIAL LIFE. We give you a bird's eye view ot the activities Within the numer- ous student organizations. Every school is proud ot its athletes and every stu- dent takes pride in showing his colors. We have set aside a part ot the book in which YOUTH GIVES A CHEER tor the many athletic activities. "All work and no play makes lack a dull boy." Have you ever heard this maxim?

"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." I NIA.-5 W cm N 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 also." 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 brain." 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 opportunities." 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 of it." 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 grand years." 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- fiction books." 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- sible. I intend to become a professional singer. Since this is my ambition, I feel that with plenty of hard work, confidence, perseverence and per- sonality, I shall be successfu1." we Clfe SE IORS! -. - f 6' 34:5 Vg.-I -ff V Q t 1? nity' 1- Z f iff I - .

"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 aiding others." 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." -in I , n 1541 UV ' Q r ' The speaker of the day Q, lx h er J V' l Q N Q + J ,X ov 4 ,Q W N g l Lk ,F Q- .Q is Markcl , ' , X .

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 career." 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 cherished memories." 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 hobby." sd' . ......... 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- fort." 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 high school." 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 best part." RUTH SIVITS . . . "My first plan after graduation is to obtain a job in some down-town store.

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 matrimonyf' 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." .-Eg. : ata yx gk! kgs i 5, . 65 -QF 1 R R 5 S S Q SG N R Long may they wave triumphantly! 4277 ' 1 1 , X pf kk gy.,-lk!

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 States." 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 myself." 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 gained." DARL YOUNKER . . . "Sewing and cooking are my delights. I have learned many things 'in Home Economics that make a finished garment look less homemade. Experimenting with foods is something we can do every day. If you don't believe try it some time." ROBERT THOMAS . . . "Bob has not been with us since the first part of the year. He is now working at the Lorain Steel Company."

I t's our guess, you don't know the half of it--- l34l "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 other people. 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- year process. 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 athletics."

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." 1 ?:'?f?5WW" ' ' ' 4 4 J J,-.5 . 5- a .

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 "Hattie". The Courier staff personalities were: Editor, Mary Florence Snyderp Assistant Editors, Patty Mitchell, Betty Grace Griffith: Art Editor, Olive Gilbertg Reporters, Lois lean Hassenplug, Albert Cruickshank, La- Vern Lees, Rose Kirchner, Ruth Weimer, Curtis Hunt, Nancy Todhunter, Lois Saylor, LEFT TO RIGHT: Miller, Snyder Schweitzer, Van Horne. Griffith. REFLECTOR . . . many hours of dreaming. 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 Ferndale. 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.

Mr. Baker gives the songsters a work-out in assembly 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. t44l BOYS' CHORUS T11 e tfzlk of the I OVI11 c Sp , ring Concert, TOP PICTURE: FIRST-Kimmel, Dibert, Heider.

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 . . .

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 . . .

I t's a sure bet . . . the destiny of today's youth lies 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.

The program of scouting is built around the Boy Scout's Motto, "Be Prepared" . . . To do its part toward strength- ening and invigorating democracy the Scout Movement is reflecting the national mood by preparing its members for instant and effective action. Boy Scouts are now training in scout- craft and outdoor lore for any sort of emer- gency and disaster service . . . Through the Emergency Service Corp, training is given in first aid, rescue work, firefighting and 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 . . .

Displaying impressive early season form, the Iackets routed the Shade Town- ship High gridders in their first interscho- lastic football game of the season at the 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 threat. 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 F' .3 Strike up the band Something to howl about The touchdown that made us howl! interference to sweep the visitors off their feet on powerful end runs.

A recov- TOdh.,m,, ered fumble near the Iacket goal line proved the play which determined the contest in favor of the Blue and White and resulted in Ferndale's first defeat in three starts. 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 T..EkA.-M TEAM-TEAM TEAM! One hundred and sixty-five horsepower yell 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 l59l 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 and Levergood. 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- WOW! the pigskin Ferndale ,.,.....

Chappel, Daniels and Hoffman paved the way for the backs to get into the open on several occasions. Scoring on 7l and 73-yard drives, the Iackets downed their old rival Conemaugh High, l3 to 6. Chased up and down the field during the first half, the Iron Horses came back in the second half and turned what appeared to be a one-sided affair into an exciting game. The Horses narrowly missed tying the count in the final minute of play when a pass receiver left a pass slip through his fingers. Coach Fisher's lads.

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. Fernda1e's victory vaulted the Iacket's posi- tion of a leading contender for the cham- pionship of the Eastern section of the Cen- tral Pennsylvania Conference. In the Armistice Day football game at the Point, the Fisher gridders easily routed the Red and Black warriors of Indiana, 27-0. The local juggernauts rolled over the Indians for a total of 18 first downs to one. For three of their four touchdowns Fern- dale marched 64, 44 and 78 yards, the fourth coming on a pass worth 69 yards which was the outstanding single piece of work of the whole tussle. 2 ge 2, hair -trigger "get - up -and - go".

The Fishermen missed a touchdown by inches in the third period when Bruce. on a long end run, advanced the ball to the 10-yard ribbon. The powerful end sweeps proved too much for the Lewistown gridders as Ferndale hit their stride to run up 20 points in rapid succession.

The Iackets won their fourth straight Southern Division title and earned the privi- lege of meeting the winner of the Northern Division in a playoff for the l94U crown against Cresson High. The Fishermen went on a spree to trample Cresson, 49-6, and captured the The success of the season was largely due to the fact that the boys worked to- gether harmoniously as a group and that each boy individually was able to carry out his assignment, also to the fact that sev- eral of the boys were able to fill two and three positions. Hoffman, particularly served as a utility back, guard, and end and was able to fill any of these gaps at the time he was most needed. K62l NIEEPER !" another basket! Swish-swish! . . . Another basketball season started in full swing. Entering the Tri-County League for their second season, the Yellow Iackets won the championship for the second consecutive year. The Iacket Iunior Varsity, likewise, came through and captured the title in the newly organized I. V. league of the same section. The Fishermen closed the regular conference season with ten wins in the same number oi starts and completed the entire season with a record of eighteen wins in twenty games for an outstanding record. Finishing in the same creditable manner the George tutored I-V's. lost only one game in twenty-one starts and climaxed the year by winning the South Fork Iunior Varsity Tournament in championship form. By virtue of winning the Tri-County League championship, Ferndale met the Iohnnies of Iohnstown High in the first play- off eliminations of District Six. Despite the tact that the Iackets had once beaten the Trojans earlier in the season, the Stingers were shoved aside in a close contest, 21 to 20.

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- er to place the Iackets in front just as the game ended. In their first Tri-County title threat, the Fisher quintet successfully met the challenge by subduing the Westmont Hilltoppers, 39 to 25. A slashing seven-point drive early in the fourth quarter put Ferndale out in front and set the stage for the Yellow Iacket's 30 to 27 victory over the Iohnstown Trojans.

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- ning streak by a decisive 48 to 35 score. Ferndale met Westmont to end its schedule in the Tri-County League and downed their old cage rivals 33 to 27 for its lUth consecutive victory in league com- pletion. After this victory the Stingers met Altoona High's Mountain Lions, but were unable to protect a nine-point margin gained during the early part of the tilt and were nosed out by a single point, 23 to 22.

After the discontinuance of track for two years made necessary by the condition of the playing field, Ferndale High School re- sumed interclass basketball and track last spring. Following the interclass meet, a team Was selected and entered in three meets: a dual meet with Westmont, the Iunior Pitt and the Cambria County meets. Despite the fact that the entire team was green and inexperienced and with facilities for practice very limited the squad managed to sweep the field events in the dual meet with Westmont but lost the running events.

At the county meet held at Ebensburg, Ferndale captured fourth place against a strong field. Levergood placed first in the high jump, and came only V4 inch short of the county record. Ohs earned third place in the same event. Levergood captured third place in the pole vault. In the running events Huster came in third in the mile after leading for nearly the full distance. Fourteen points were earned for the day's work, but the squad received valuable experience for the next year. .........Down......Plop!

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.

K -stftzset me Y 1 is-fir. 1. ss.-is-ss :H f 1 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 keen competition. C783 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 next to impossible. It's driving me mad, I tell you! I dream about it all night. In my sleep 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. "Keep it going! Stay in time!" tBump- bumpl "Get to work! Watch the shift!" tBump-bump.l And so it goes on. That slow, incessant bump stays with me all the time. BUMP- BUMP-bump-bump!! ti' HAFQ t I Eileen Larson believed in oiling her ice skates before using them. Dad took his unusual beating in pre- paration for the Iunior-Senior Banquet. The four students who played hookie to go skiing had detention for a week. Who was the teacher who liked to eat apples on her way home at noon? Did you notice the gray hairs after the Iuniors started writing themes and making speeches? Could it be that the Iuniors sold candy in study hall? We occassionally heard cz rustle but not the rustle of leaves. Leslie Van Horn's eyebrows have been arched nicely. Thanks to someone! A full waste-paper basket of chewing gum can be gathered in each school day. Someone should teach limmy Stouppe how to operate an alarm clock. We wonder it Iim Hindman, the "bone crusher," really lived up to his name. Ask the "Dutchman." Who was the Freshman boy excused from detention by the teacher only to dis- cover that detention was excused that night by Mr. Keller? There was a time in Mr. Custer's life when he didn't know what to say. Dick Hassenplug was seen in Moxham wheeling an empty baby carriage. Now what does that mean? The photography club party has put two heretofore bachelors into the Romeo class. Nice going Iack and Al. Watch out girls if you can't understand what your boy triendis saying. The French II class has read a love novel. Who's the female collector that Dick Spotz and "Dave" Beihl visit regularly? ..scraps from the scratch pad. A salute to spring . .. Girls' Chorus in action Swing your pardner 0 0 Those boys again The grand finale THE AMERICAN HERITAGE OF SONG 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". A musical pageant with a smattering l80l FIRST Hauser. Zeiler. T D K. Davis, Boerstler. SECOND - Ripple.

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 the finale. 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. USHERS CLUB . . .
