OUR SCHOOL OF STUDENT P OTS is preparing to move along to the final cli ax of a lengthy and arduous course, which eac mem- ber of the training unit hopes will lead t his fu- ture career. The students have,"' of cour e, been taught all the fundamentals of learning 'n both elementary and advanced instruction. 'th this knowledge, it can be correctly assumed hat our training unit provides the necessary link etween termination of the student's instructi n and actual participation by him, to become a raduate pilot from the Ferndale Training Base. he stu- dent has certain fatigues to perform. These often seem very undesirable at the time, but are help- ful and essential for the future and are no entire- ly lacking in benefit to the student hims lf. The ultimate result of these operations is a definite ----1 l , f l N f lm! XM ,- Z , X 1 y LOOKING TO THE FUTURE understanding by the student of what is to be expected of him in the coming years. Yet, we have made only a beginning-and before our very eyes a world conflict is making our future respon- sibilities obsolete. Each class has been given a clear and concise explanation of duties and responsibilities and particular stress has been laid upon the greater opportunity for the individual to use his initia- tive in his future field of work. Each student is interested in the set of wings for which he has been striving this year. Wish him success for he has Worked hard to attain the position in which he can perform duties of great value for his country. Each and every one of the student pilots is aware of the great task which lies before him-the task of keeping America free for the future generations. Our goal can be attained only by cooperation and unity on the part of every loyal American. The command of Wllake Offn has been given. Let us heed our commanders and prepare to fly into the future.

The students who once roamed the halls of Ferndale High School are doing at job of which we may well feel proud. They are fighting for the right of all men to live in peace and with honor and decency among the millions that are fighting for future America. Thesel valiant young volunteers with their sheer, stark courage are at gallant company. They are doing a job that has much to do with the successful defense of this country, but they do t eir job lnagnificently. They shall not go unrecognized.

Today, what we all want is victory, and beyond victory a world in which free men may fulfill their aspirations. Schools, today, must help us mold men and women who can fight through to victory. Every schoolhouse must become a service center for the home front. And we pray that our young people will learn in the schools and in the colleges the wisdom and for- bearance and patience needed by men and women of good will who seek to bring to this earth a lasting peace.

For these men are doers, not idlers and talkers, and Pearl Harbor gave them, too, a whale of a job. The job of planning and adjusting a new 1943 education to fit these inexperienced youth for the future, to build strong, healthy Americans with keen, sound minds, to relieve World hatred and prejudice, to help make a peaceful and sane world in which the youth, who are yet to leave the por- tals of our schools, may find happiness and con- tent: and countless other tasks are yet to be solved. But, these men are pioneering the way, and through their measures the giant jobs will be Whit- tled down to digestible sizes.

WARTIME DOIN GS--- You don't realize how important a job the youth are doing until you see them at work. American boys and girls are no longer by-standers of War. They're in it up to their ears. For day by day these young soldiers are preparing themselves to do their part in the struggle, either to take their place in the ranks or to help make the home front safe from at- tack. These youth are not all in uniform, but all are earning their stripes. It may be in com- mon place ways like collecting scrap, selling defense stamps, studying first aid, or helping with the defense program in the community. All these things the American youth do gladly. For they know to the aching depths of their hearts what kind of War this is. It isn't for boundaries, for profit or loot. It's their War. Their parents and loved ones are sacrificing their lives for everything they love and be- lieve in, for the American Way of Life. And to that end the American youth are dedicated today to insure a peaceful tomorrow. THESE BOYS ARE PREPARED TO CARRY MESSAGES in case of any emergency: for air-raid wardens, control centers, hospitals, first-aid stations, fire stations, and police precincts. 34 ,cl FERNDALE MOBILIZES FORCES FOR DEFENSE FERNDALE HIGH SCHOOL has been selling Stamps and Bonds since the start of the war. We have sold over 510,000 worth to date. This is a record of which we are proud. THESE FIRST-AID STUDENTS ARE WELL-VERSED in the care of the injured. We're proud that we are able to depend upon them, and we trust their ability. 35 ALL OUT ON THE SCHOOL FRONT 36 BOYS AND GIRLS LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE, are doing their share to protect themselves. Wardens patrol the halls while students return to their rooms after an air raid drill . . . high school students receive training in emergency medical and first-aid work .... Because of war needs, these student units are taking an active part in community defense programs. are taking an active part in community defense programs .... They know the true value of quick thought and action which is essential in any moment of peril . . . our school Front is in safe hands. YS.. 5 9 STRATEGY BOARD ' These are the strategists who planned the maneuvers of this book. They fought the battle with their mental power and herein lies their final results. 9 ABOUT FACE ' "Yea Team, fight team, fight!" . . . these ten spirit- ed squadron leaders led the entire formation of stu- dent pilots in cheering our teams on to final victory. 9 AT EASE ' These Reflector staff mem- bers relax to enjoy a laugh at the personalities of the former year books. Informal moments like these made the hard Work that followed much easier. 37 I l I SENIOR CADETS The acting ability of our Seniors was brought out this year in the smash hit comedy, "The Whole ToWn's Talking." Under the capable and pa- tient direction of Mr. Kuhs, We strug- gled through long, hard hours of drill on how to sit, walk, speak and act. But ot course We had our lun . . . eat- ing donuts, pretzels, peanuts, and candy furnished by the cast and en- joying a good hearty laugh at the ex- pense of another character of the play. Don Sell, as Chester Binney, a middle aged bachelor who has had no experi- ence with Women, gave us many a side ache with his tactics of trying to win the hand of his employer's young and pretty daughter, Ethel Simmons, capably portrayed by lane Foltz.

This was one of our few and lar between "serious" moments. 38 SCORE DIRECT HIT World like Roger Shields, a smart young Frenchman, smoothly played by Fred Mostoller. So, Mr. Simmons, Bob Grenning, schemes a false love affair between Chester and Letty Lythe, a famous movie actress, smartly interpreted by Ruth Evans. But to make her fiancee, Donald Swift, played by Paul Auman, jealous, Letty turns the tables on Chet and the affair be- comes very complicated. The climax of the play comes when Chet, Donald, and Roger have a "fight in the dark," in which Chet ends up on the chan- delier and Roger and Donald knock each other out, making Chet a hero to Ethel. The cast Was supported by Lois Iean Hassenplug as Mrs. Sim- mons, Iosephine Poliacek as Sadie Bloom, a dance hall teacher and Annie, the maid, by Eileen Larson. Other supporting roles Were played by Betty Naugle, Ruth Murray, LaVerne Lees, Pauline Maldet, Ioan Gilbert and Robert Griffith. All in all, it was a great success, even though Rhea, our student director, did have to coach us when we failed to remember our lines and our movements.

They hail from Middle Taylor, Brownstown, Lorain, and Riverside. When We are still asleep, they are on their Way to school-no matter what the day. They take an active part in school activities and produce a great percentage of the honor roll. There is always a big scramble for the best seats on the bus, and the old saying, "First come, first served," is practiced on every occasion. How- ever, in our minds, the students from Lorain Borough and Riverside are even braver, for they face the bitter Winds of Winter and the rains of spring without the luxury of a bus. Yes, a great part of Ferndale's soul rests in her tuition students. FAMILIAR FACES AND PLACES LOOK PRETTY NOW, 'cause this is for the Reflector . . . Hey! Whcxt's your hurry?

FERNDALE GEARS 0 OFF TO A GOOD START 0 Ferndale High School's Yellow Iackets, meeting Rich- land Township High in the local gridiron curtain-raiser. stacked up against surprisingly stiff opposition from the in- experienced Townshippers and managed to slide through to a 12-U victory. Although the yellow-clad boroughmen rang up a total of 14 first downs to one for the losers, Coach Fisher's men lost several scoring chances as the plucky Geistown lads repeatedly put up a stubborn defense. The local's first touchdown came in the second quarter after Bebe Altemus' nifty punt rolled out of bounds on Richland's three yard line. Geistown kicked but the punt was blocked and Brant pounced on the oval for the initial counter. Their other touchdown came in the third frame, when the Iackets showed signs of going places with a 60-yard drive. Davis heaved a basketball pass straight over the center of the line to LaMarr Altemus, who had to run only two yards to get into pay dirt.

The Stingers threatened again early in the second period when a 19-yard pass from Hind- man to Ripple set the ball on the Ebensburg 19. The County-seaters braced and took over four plays later on their own 14. Hindman and Davis contributed the big chunk of Ferndale's 50-yard dash to a touch- down in the third period, with a Hindman-to- Geisler heave contributing ll yards. Davis went over from the two-yard stripe on a cen- ter plunge. Ferndale, holding a 6-U lead, attempted a forward heave from deep in its own terri- tory, but an Ebensburg back pulled in the oval and raced 18 yards for the score. The spark of victory now burst into flame and the Red and Black were soon off on a 7U-yard jaunt for their second touchdown. B. ALTEMUS DAVIS -as S ' .4 A-an-.I f S ln STRAVASNIK BRANT O PERFECT DEADLOCK O Ferndale and Conemaugh Township fought their way through a U-0 deadlock to launch a future grid rivalry. The two teams were matched so evenly that only one serious threat developed during the entire contest, and that when the Indians took to the war- path in the second quarter and moved to Ferndale's two-yard stripe before "making peace." Pure statistics can easily prove how even- ly-matched the two squads were. The Iackets piled up a total yardage gain of 111 yards, 99 by ground plays and 12 through the air, while the visitors chewed up 113 yards, 96 by rushing and 17 by passing. Ferndale held a 7-6 advantage in first downs. The Iackets threatened in the third on a pass from Stravasnik to Hindman for a first down on the enemy 30. Hindman passed to Plachy in the clear but the ball fell to the ground, losing their chance to score. STARS IN SERVICE - E 5 A I l . . . --. , -"' ., L. ALTEMUS 49 .FIGHTING SPIRIT IS DEVELOPED BY 0 AMAJOR DEFEAT I Our grid machine went down to its sec- ond defeat when Punxsutawney's rugged. hard-driving team came from behind to whip the boroughmen, 20-6, in a thrilling battle. Herb Davis pounced on an enemy tumble on the third play of the game and the Iackets needed only seven plays to eat up the 41 yards to the goal line. Davis crashed over the payoll stripe for the score. In the last quarter the Iackets hammered their way to within ll yards ot a touchdown, only to have their last-ditch passes batted down. The Punxsy gridders reeled off their three touchdowns on long marches, one on a 84- yard drive, one on a 40-yard push and the last on a 67-yard gallop. I TWELVE UP 0 The Fisher revamped Yellow Iackets be- gan hitting their stride for the first time this season and battled a highly favored Portage Bulldog eleven to a 12-12 tie. Plachy bounced on a Portage lateral on the visitor's 29 to set the stage for the Stingers' first "sting," On the next play Frambach whipped a pass to Hindman for the score. Ferndale-'s second tally was made by Bob Ripple, who plunged across from the two to climax a drive that started with LaMarr Alte- rnus' recovery of a Portage fumble on the Mainliner's 24. Ferndale held a 7-5 edge in first downs. Portage moved into paydirt on trips of 45 and 24-yard drives. The Bulldogs outgained the Iackets by 100 yards to 82. 50 AMERICAN SPORTS O N0 SOAP O Invading Ferndale High went down to its third defeat of the season when DuBois annexed a Z4-7 victory over the Black cmd Gold. The victors rang up two first-period touchdowns on a 61-yard march follow- ing the opening kickoff and on a 54-yard punt return. Ferndale threatened to overhaul the home team in the second period when they drove 64 yards to score and cut the handicap to 12-7, but the locals recorded a touchdown in each of the last two frames to finish well ahead. Bob Hindman plunged across from the two-yard line for the lone Iacket tally after Bebe Altemus' 15-yard run had sparked the long Ferndale march. Davis lateraled to Hindman for the extra point. DuBois scored its third marker from short range to climax a 52-yard, third period advance. DuBois recovered a Iacket fumble on the 26 to start the last quarter, with Stanley tearing around right end for the final score four plays later. DuBois led in first downs, 13-6, and outgained the Iackets considerably in yardage from scrimmage. MANAGERS "HARKY" HARCLERODE, BOB SAINTZ. AND IOHN HINDMAN are on the job before the big fight preparing the boys by wrapping ankles and fixing cleets. Left-end Alternus seems to enjoy their "gentle touch." O A CLOSE SHAVE I Staging a desperate 60-yard drive in the Waning minutes of the game, the Iackets over- hauled the Conemaugh Iron Horses and carted off a 7-6 victory. Conemaugh blasted their way over the goal line from the Ferndale 39 early in the fourth quarter following recovery of a Iacket fumble. The Yellow Iackets came back to take the ensuing kickoff on' their own 40 and set their wings buzzing goalward. Bebe Altemus and Hindman chalked up first downs on the Cone- maugh Z3 and 13. Hindman was good for three to the 10 and Davis drove over for the tying score on his third straight job at the line. Hindman then came through with the Winning point.

VITAL MANPOWER MOVES INTO ACTION 0 EVEN STEPHEN 0 I-'in underdog Black and Gold eleven bat- tled to a 6-6 tie with Barnesboro High School's Red Dragons in a nip-and-tuck contest. Ferndale was stopped twice after driving as far as the Barnesboro l5 in the first half. The second march was turned into a Dragon touchdown when their left-end snatched a Ferndale lateral in mid-air on the 21 and romped over the Iacket goal line. Starting from the Dragon's 43 early in the third quarter Ferndale needed only a few plays to advance to the three-yard stripe, from where Hindman swept right end for the tying tally. The placement kick was blocked. The Iackets were kept at a distance throughout most of the contest by the flashy punting of the Dragon's fullback. Time and again his kicks pulled the Barnesboro eleven out of danger. Ferndale outplayed their opponents by a considerable margin. The Stingers held a 9-4 edge in first downs and gained 160 yards to 73. With the exception of the interception, the Dragons were unable to advance into scoring position at any time. 0 WE DOOD IT I Westmont led Ferndale 6-U throughout most of the interborough gridiron clash, but the Yellow Iackets staged a determined fourth-period drive which netted a touchdown, and then lateral passed for the all important extra point which decided the contest 7-6. Westmont achieved its only score early in the game when they blocked a punt, recov- ered the ball and raced 22 yards in the open to the Ferndale goal line. Ferndale received the ball on its 42-yard line. Davis made three yards and a line plunge failed. Then came the most sensational play of the game. Davis broke through right tackle and reached the Hilltoppers' 45, where he tossed a lateral to Alternus, who ran down the sidelines to the 16 before being brought down from behind. The next three plays yield- ed only six yards but on the fourth Hindman fired a pass over the right side of the line to Plachy, who made the catch in the end zone. A lateral pass, Davis to Hindman, manu- factured the all-important conversion point for the triumph. CHEERLEADERS IN ACTION create enthusiasm cmd morale for our fighting divisions.

Ferndale's high-flying Iackets tucked away their first win in the Tri-County League to make a successful start by annexing a 33-27 count over Indiana in a whirlwind game all the way. Decidedly off-stride and unable to find their sting consequently the Yellow Iackets went down to a 33-28 defeat at the hands of Ebensburg High's Red Devils. The score was quite even throughout until the Ebensburgers really got going in the last quarter to grab the lead.

FIRST IN THE SERVICES Q i l THOSE WHO HAVE WON DECORATIONS One of the impressive facts about the heroes produced in the American fighting forces is that they are almost invariable athletes. In our American sports-football, basketball, baseball, track, etc., they pre- pared their muscles, their nerves, their minds, to function as perfect machines in the hazardous game of deadly War. Yes, and in these same competitive sports they learned another thing that soldiers in a great and noble cause must have-fight- ing spirit and the will to win. The Varsity F Club are all "he-men," alert to America's needs of today . . . and tomorrow. Upon these veterans Will de- pend the outcome, just as Was true in the past-when they met the opponent, face to face, and fought to keep their record intact. We honor our athletic heroes and give to them the decorations Which they so nobly have earned the right to wear. Only those athletes Who have met the requirements for a letter in one or more varsity teams are eligible for membership in the Ferndale Varsity "F" Club. The pur- pose of this organization is to foster the spirit of fair play, cooperation, and clean living among athletic competitors in Fern- dale High School. Each club member pledges to be loyal at all times to his team and the school which it represents, to play the game honestly, to obey training rules, to play the game hard, trying to win by strength and skill, to treat his opponents with courtesy, to be a good loser and a generous Winner, and to set a good example for the Ferndale athletes who are trying their best to gain the opportun- ity to be a member of the varsity squad or team. We salute these boys - all disting- uished heroes who have carried our banner through an- other successful cam- paign.

Each member chooses his own project . . . most of the boys are engrossed in design- ing and building airplanes . . . other members have se- lected projects such as weaving purses, etching brace- lets, making portfolios, linking wooden belts and chip- carving. These unusual projects will probably keep every- one busy practically all year. The group has participated in discussions on art subjects. Each student has been de- lightfully surprised with the splendid results of this newly organized unit. I WINGS FOR AMERICAN YOUTH 0 A new wrinkle was injected into pilot training by Instructor Wolfe. He figured that a lot could be accom- plished for the good of America and for our future pilots by organizing a school airplane club. As a result, Fern- dale did its part to "keep 'em flying." Our young aviation cadets learned the designs and makes of airplanes so they could recognize them in split-second time . . . studied the intricate mechanisms . , . built model planes for Uncle Sam . . . acquired some fundamentals in the art of flying . . . and became acquainted with technical terms not usually intelligent to the layman. The result was good-better trained students. PHOTOGRAPHY President WILLIAM HARRIS Vice President DONALD HAGERICH Secretary-Treasurer PATRICIA IACOBS Advisor MR.

PHYLLIS GILBERT l 0 WELL DONE, MY LADS 0 Have you ever heard ot the Assembly Band? Well, you should have, since it played quite frequently for school USO activities . . . entertained in assemblies, assisted for the Senior Play, worked-out for basketball games and came to the rescue for other special programs. For several mornings every week it could be heard practicing during preparation period . . . the squeak of the violins, the beat of the drums, the toot of the brasses-all, were under the untiring supervision of Mr. Iohnson. Although the director has obtained several gray hairs from it, its music has been enjoyed by every one. O BUBBLING WITH VIVACITY O One of the largest training units within the school is the Dramatic Club. With spacious, well-equipped head- quarters in the auditorium, each student had the oppor- tunity to develop hidden talent and to get over the. "jitters" and stage fright. After many hours of basic instruction in dramatic fundamentals, each trainee was on his own . . . some took part in plays, a few gave lectures, and others performed individually . . . each contribution afforded a USO program for the entire training school units .... Our year's training provided both recreation and pleasure after long classroom sessions as well as practical ex- perience. O A PAD FULL OF SYMBOLS I Yes, we will wear the white collars of tomorrow! Un- der faithful guidance and advice we have been training to be better prepared to fill our future positions. But wait! . . . We did something entirely new this year-took dicta- tion and typed letters and orders for hard pressed in- structors. Learned scores of other things too-wrapped packages, sealed envelopes, typed even right margins, cut stencils, and performed in model interviews . . . and never found time to glance at our watches. With all this knowledge we say-"Watch out business, here comes your future secretaries!"

Yes, that was the blended voices of the Boys' Chorus . . . not only singing songs for programs etc., but mostly blasting away for their own enjoyment. The boys sang for assemblies, participated in the Spring Concert. formed a fine octette, and acquired a more basic founda- tion in music. The voices ranged from high, clear tenors down to the deep, mellow basses . . . harmonizing to- gether there was a fine result . . . occasionally, however, a few notes escaped which were not called for in the music. O LET FREEDOM RING 0 With unfailing good nature and a beat of the baton, Robert Iohnson, a newcomer to our music department, calls the chorus to order .... What patience! Familiar strains faintly float through the corridors, with sopranos and altos harmonizing equally well . . . enjoyed hearing Mr. Iohnson "tickle the ivories." This was a period of re- laxation-what fun it was to stack our books, sit back, and pour forth with gusto . . . however, we were often reminded about chewing gum as well as our musical signs. Altogether we worked hard, had a lot of fun, and gained valuable and helpful training in musical experience. I ALL OUT ON PARADE O Accepted the services of many new volunteers to in- crease our size in a record-breaking march to success . . . progressed enormously under the supervision of Command- er Iohnson . . . contribtued color and expression to the football games . . . participated in many weekly assem- blies . . . spent long weary hours drilling at Commanding Headquarters . . . were commended on our precision and snappiness .... were famed for the uniqueness displayed while maneuvering on the football field . . . drafted the services' of twelve "super" majorettes Cyep, they can twirl, tooll . . . added a marching novelty to the pep meetings . . . rendered our services at the Christmas Parade fbrr, was it coldll . . . all in all, enjoyed a merry year serving in Ferndale High School's Commanding Forces.

The girls were mainly interested in a physical fitness program . . . had several games with the boys athletic club . . . learned new games . . . developed a worthy spirit ot enthusiasm and enjoyment in athletics. The club moved outdoors and participated in such sports as baseball, tennis and croquet when the weather permitted . . . you should have seen some of those home runs! Girls were especially interested in basketball . . . completing a successful year, simply filled with good times in sports, each member developed many new friendships, and learned the real value of ideals in sports. 0 TI-IEY'RE ALL DOING IT I As we glide past the gym, what do we see but twenty- tive busy twirlers. Ot course it would be monotonous just drilling from 8:00 to 8:30 every morning for six solid weeks. so there are other things included. Look! Now they are exercising and getting physically fit for tuture activities .... Yes, they are also taught the latest dance steps to break the monotony . . . we will later see them rehearsing march- ing routines. The members ot the club are selected on their ability and personal appearance. They, too, have an aim- to measure up to the standard baton twirlers. 0 T0 KEEP 'EM READING 0 One of the many useful and practical units of Ferndale . . . established for the first time this year to acquaint stu- dents with knowledge of the library. The club has accom- plished much during this year in the way of keeping books in order and contributing articles to the bulletin board, also handing out those little white slips that really are a headache when suddenly out ot a blue sky someone po- litely, and smilingly, hands you a "please remit." Several programs demonstrating just what they should have learned were given .... All in all, real achievements were attained.

We decided our theme to be aviation, since it seems to be the present and future keynote of America. With the co-operation of the staff, we were soon on our way with the general layout. We must confess copy assignments caused headaches . . . but we worked diligently and offered what wisdom we had. Mr. Kunkle's good advice, along with his willingness and patience, contributed to the success of our Reflector. The co-editors spent many hours working on page layouts. Our brilliant ideas brought money to finance the book . . . yes, we all participated, by jivin' at the "Iinxs" dance and dishing out nickles for guesses on the mysterious ob- stacles to be found in the cakes . . . we even canvassed homes to sell Xmas cards. The most interesting feature of our book is its informality . . . take notice to the informal snapshots taken and supplied by Mr. Custer. The aim of the entire Reflector staff was to make this annual an at- tractive and invaluable book . . . we hope you like it! 0 COURIER DRAMATIZES SCHOOL LIFE 0 "Hey, did you get your article Written yet?" "How many words in that write-up?" "There will be a staff meet- ing at 3:30 in Mr. Hill's room." These were a few of the common remarks heard from time to time among the Courier staff members. Editors-in-chief of the school paper were Ruth Weimer and Ioan Gilbert, two capable seniors who helped the paper weather many a storm. The humorous, eye-filling columns were products of Marilyn Miller's creative mind, while the thrilling sport's columns were written by Steve Virus. Exchanging school papers with many nearby schools, loanne Kelly was a busy editor. To keep the school in- formed about our alumni, both at home and on the front lines of action, Lois lean Hassenplug had a difficult as- signment, but she filled it very capably. Robert Wright, our number one ace in the art field, very effectively planned the art designs for each issue. Assisting Bob was Carl Larson, who shared the responsibilities equally well. Dorothy Rubrecht headed the busy reporters who hounded everyone for news, news, and more news. The journalists attributed much of their success to Mr. Hill, who advised them soundly on difficult problems and snags confronting them. The staff can proudly look back upon a record of success and popularity. STAFF Editors EILEEN LARSON RHEA GINDLESPERGER PATRICIA IACOBS Ass't.
