M ':,- vmwwik , ,.. , And when the stream Which overflowed the soul was passed away, A consciousness remained that it had left, Deposited upon the silent shore of memory, Images and precious thoughts, That shall not die, and cannot be destroyed. . . . William Wordsworth And so it is with usl Desiring to recapture and perpetuate precious thoughts and images of school work and play, we have gathered these pages of prose and pictures, Like the sentiment expressed by the poet, we are not willing that such fond memories should die. Those images which sink deepest are often those which we scarcely know, at the moment of their imprint, that we are noticing at all. So it is with our experiences in school - with those thrills, vivid for only an instant. It is also true with words - for there are some which are brilliant, clever, incisive - and man- kind is not willing that they should die. The Reflector staff has chosen to illustrate these images of life and school with many time- less expressions of perpetual voices, The theme of our book - Great Quotations ofMankind - is woven about familiar places and friendly faces. We rest secure in the faith that if our efforts prove insignificant on these pages, at least the wisdom and wit of the ages will not have been rewritten and reread at a loss by our patrons. 1 .o 4- ' f s T' 5' U f" . ., 'gi 1 - 2 I , , , 1 f' l 4 1, ff. sa. ka 1 A n 2 il' A ' 4 5 .

I A 1 Q Mr, s. my Grimm, Jr., Super- Miss Patricia Sass, Secretary to the high school principal. With the formation of our expanded school system as the result of the jointure, our high school profited in the hiring of a principal, Mr, Elmer Berkebile, Mr. S. Ray Grimm, Jr., our supervising principal, now serving his second year in that position, has been extremely busy in seeing to the smooth operation of an enlarged program. We have, therefore, been fortunate, indeed, to have Mr. Berkebile enter our school and effectively administer our program. Coming to Ferndale after a successful teaching and guidance career at Adams Twp. High School, Mr. Berkebile has been acclaimed by students and fac- ulty for his good beginning as an administrator. Our office staff has undergone further change with the retirement of our long-time secretary, Miss Wilma Mooney, after 27 years at Ferndale. She has been re- placed by Miss Bonnie Ryan, who now serves as secre- tary to Mr. Grimm, and by Miss Patricia Sass, who works with Mr. Berkebile. Both girls are recent grad- uates of our high school. u.1fa5 fdefwig ia denf 1 f 7 ,gl . fde free .4 inchnecl . .pope V Greater Ferndale Joint School Board ,I First Row: Martin Hodos, Robert Hag- e l erich, Geo.

P-' A i - Mr Elmer Berkebile, High The Greater Ferndale School System, formed by a new jointure of four districts, has become operative this year. Each district elects five mento st-rveonour joint school board. The advantages and improvements in our school system re- sulting from the jointure are numerous and important. l'he equal representation of school board members gives each dis- trict an opportunity to share in the management and policy making of their schools. The improvements in our educational program resulting from the jointure include a guidance counselor, a new high school principal with an additional clerk in hisoffice, fine arts for all students from kindergarten through 12th grades, and health and physical education in grades 7 through 12, The schools now render such services as nursing, guidance, home bound instruction, and many extra curricular activities which were not offered before the new contract was drawn up. Many services that were needed for the youth of our community and the local boards of education are now being furnished, The jointure contract was drawn up on a five year basis with each district sharing in the operation and upkeep of F. ll, but retaining their own districts' building responsibilities, However, all instructional expenses are included under the administration of the joint board. Mr. Carl Harrison was elected president of the joint board with Mr. Robert Cowan as vice-president, Mr. Richard Clay- comb as treasurer, and Mr, George W, W, .lones as secretary, School Principal Miss Bonnie Ryan, ztov the 'Supervising Principal i , 1 r wi ,, 5 .4 , M.

In the two years that he has been teaching in Ferndale,Mr, Hersh- berger has proven to be a thorough, competent teacher. We believe that he is a man with a future. During school hours Mr. Hershberger teaches mathematics. When the school bell sends the students horneward, Mr. Hersh- berger then spends many hours ably coaching our junior high school boys in basketball and football, or instructing the golf team. His thoughtful advice is also important in his role as advisor for the senior class. This tribute from his students comes to a man, young in years of experience, but to one who has his heart and soul in the well- being of all of us.

The Junior Class, with 77 members, is one of the largest groups in recent years. Their year as Juniors has been a busy and a progressive one, for the class has worked hard, scholastically, athletically, and in extra-curricular activities, The annual magazine campaign, a class project which provides funds for the Junior-Senior banquet and reception and partially defrays yearbook expenses, was a tremendous success this year, Setting a goal of 53000 in sales, the class actually surpassed this total by S77,16. This determined spirit was gratifying to the entire school. In the campaign, Jack Hoffman and Jane Parkinson proved themselves as top sales personnel. Other highlights of the year, ofcourse, were the purchases of attractive class rings, and the presentation of a wonderful Prom. Individual members contributed their talents to all school activities. Particular mention of the exceptionally large honor group seems worthy. Attaining this enviable roll were Barbara Cowan, Pat Baldwin, Mary Jo Burley, Anna Marie Fetsko, Donna Holmok, Edward Janosko, Betty Lanko, Wendell Laposata, Lillian Long, Mary Ann Marcinko, Nancy Pollack, and Donna Swarny. -il l I ..-Y.-ug Jumor Class Officers: ' ' ' Bill Cvrkel, Donna Swarny, vxce-presxdent, Cowan, secretary Barbara "iv A p NR .J ,Q Q l,,,f l .fbi 70' K I l ,P I "5 nrmyi :LVN . ww' way to a man's heart isthrough Satan finds mischief for idle hands. . . .

Seventy-three Sophomores, comprising the second year students of our high school, entered avidly into numerous school activities. Most important on the list of their achievements was the imposing number of honor students among their membership. Consistently attaining this scholastic feat were Jill James, Richard Nau Charlotte Szelazek, Judy Drum, Teresa Dugan, John Gander, Lois Garshnick, Judy Kemeny, Bill Krum, Jos- ephine Malisko, Richard Sanker, and Virginia Tomak, An especially important feature of the 1955-56 year was the first class party sponsored at Ferndale in many years. With President Jackie Stephey as its leader, the class arranged an enjoyable evening of fellowship and festivity, It is hoped this precedent can be adopted by future classes. Another unique feature instituted by the class was a welfare committee commissioned to send "get well' cards to members who had extended absences. Class members serving in special activities included Teresa Dugan and Richard Nau, Courier representatives, and Jill James, Reflector staff apprentice. Entering the key club as new initiates were Jerry Cuppett, Richard Sanker, James McCann, Richard Nau, and Bill Krum. Of course, Sophomores served in considerable numbers on cheerleading and majorette squads and'in athletic en- deavors. Sophomore Class: First Row: R. Adams, W. Krum. R. Thomas, E. Czyrnlk, R.

XJ 44 I The ambitious, but at times boisterous eighth grade had the advantage of mixing as a unit before entering high school this year. With 89 students divided into three sections, these kids had the advantage of shop art, music, and gwn instruction in their curriculum. The group produced talented musicians and some fine singing voices for Junior Chorus. Those deserving special mention as the class scholars were: Francis Pilzys, Lois Burkett, Patricia Dudash, Nancy Hocken- smith, and Joseph Karas. Although no boys stood out in athletics, the large number of these lads who turned out for Junior High sports gladdened the hearts of the coaching staff. Eighth Grade First Row: C. Hagerich, D.

Q-U - With the formation of our new jointure, namely the Greater Ferndale School System, seventh grade students from all four areas came to our Junior High this year for the first time. There were 88 scared and bewildered youngsters roaming our halls searching for their classes, the library, and the lunchroom early in the year. However, it didn't take them long to learn "the Ferndale policy." These students have joined enthusiastically in contributing their talents to Junior Chorus, Band, and assembly programs. Many of the boys turned out for Junior High athletics. Consistent honor students from seventh grade wereg Carolyn Brock, Bonnie Shaffer, William Straub, Barbara Barkheimer, Jane Bauder, Victor Bevec, Terry Blue, Diane Brant,Suellen Claycomb, Gail Feight, Audrey Gindlesperger, Carol Jean Gould, Jon James, and Elisha Ann Smith.

Today's schools, instead, are a seething cauldron of activity as extensive as the exertions, talents, and desires of boys and girls. It is, therefore, important that in our study of precious moments of school life, 1955-56, we should devote this section of our book to some of these memory en- voking experiences. Regardless of the leisure time inclinations of our pupils, whether they are athletic,musical,literary, or dramatic, in our co-curricular offerings each person may find an outlet for his preferences. Our school life is made immeasureably more interesting and varied by mass participation in such pursuits. 5 wiv. en are never 50 !ILefy fo Aefffe a quewfion riglzffy aa w en flue? i5cu.1.4 il ree y. . . afall ay Council Members: Seventh grade: Jon James, Joyce Rininger, Billy Hoffman, Carol J.

Bough, Admitting many new members at their mid-year initiation, the Ferndale Varsity F Club became one of the largest groups representing letter-winning athletes in years. The initiation ceremonies for the new members was a jolly and interesting affair. Led by president Tom Balog, the Club sought to vary pro- ceedings by new activities and methods. As in the past, the boys served as parking attendants and sold candy at the annual P.T.A. minstrel. Other officers were Hildebrand, vice-presidentg and Ashcom, sec- retary-treasurer. Mr. Michael continued as F club advisor. . Row: M. E. Killen, R. Drum, J. V. Mlinar, A. M. Fetsko, M. A girl for every sport and a sport for every girl." This is the motto of the Girls' Athletic Association. To become a member of G.A.A., a girl must earn fifty points by participating in girl's interclass sports. To be eligible to become an officer, she must have a minimum of seventy-five points. Officers for 1955-56 were Judy Stuver, presidentg Ten-ie Weaver' vice-presidentg Carolyn Blas- chak, secretaryg and Mary Ann Marcinko, treasurer. The highest award given in G. A. A. is the club pin, awarded to those earning five-hundred points. A chennile emblem is provided for those girls earning more than one hundred points. The association uses money-making pro- jects to purchase the awards. Under the capable leadership of Mrs. Sue Higgins, a new addition to our faculty, the club conducted a program of basketball, volleyball, and softball. lt was aninteresting and successful sport's year.

These capable girls efficiently conduct our stu- dents to and from the auditorium for assemblies,thus contributing to the smooth functioning of our school program. A few minutes before each assembly the girls go to their assigned stations, ready to see that everyone gets to his seat in an orderly fashion. After each program usherettes are responsible for the tidiness of the auditorium. They also serve as polite escorts at all public functions in our school.

The Future Nurse's Club of Ferndale was organized in September, 1955, under the able supervision of our school nurse, Mrs. Ling. In January the writing and approval of the constitution was accom- plished. Aside from the regular business meetings, members were given a general idea of what is expected of a student nurse. Present plans include future movies, speak- ers, and a tour of a hospital. Included in the instruction period was first aid, the metric system, medical spelling and proper making of beds. The club was open to girls from grades 9 to 12 who were interested in the nursing profession. A gir1's pep club was organized this year for the pur- pose of promoting school spirit. "Always peppy' was the motto adopted by the club. Under the capable leadership of President Marcia Hern and her officers: Barbara Cowan, vice-presidentg Teresa Dugan, secretary, and Bonnie Ling, treasurerg the pep club put on many snappy routines at the basketball games with their black and yellow shakers. Membership in the club was attained in the following manner, a girl had to fill out an application form to join the organization, then two of her teachers graded her on such things as self-expression, appearance and coopera- tiong finally, grades were considered in which the appli- cant had to maintain a C average in all subjects. Although it has had but one year to function, the club shows great promise of becoming a worthy addition to our activity program. ' r P' 9? ii- sir m. .

Miss Shirley Callen of Butler did her practice teaching in business education under Mrs. Christensen, while Mr, Ronald Perks did his in the same field under Mrs. Rager. A former Ferndale graduate, Miss Connie Paulakos, worked in girls' physical educa- tion classes with Mrs, Higgins and Mr. William Donovan of Tamaqua taught geog- raphy in the junior high field with Mr. Les- neski.

One special feature was an Indian act performed at the Conemaugh Twp. game. A new innovation for majorettes was their half-time exhibitions during our home bas- ketball season. The girls demonstrated con- tinued improvement in their technique and crowd-pleasing skits, marking a successful year of service.

Chorus membership was increased to 55 voices, including many more freshmen and sophomores than in former years. Amajor improve- ment for choral work was the purchase by the Ferndale P. T. A. of a set of stage risers enabling a convenient seating arrangement. Uncompleted chorus plans at the time the yearbook goes to press include plans to enter Forensic competition on the district level, with hopes of getting into the state-wide contests. The chorus has been at work on the required Forensic number, 'Dar- lin," an American folksong. The chorus appeared in a Thanksgiving assembly, while the boy's quartet contributed their vocal talent to assemblies fre- quently throughout the year. Accompanist for the chorus was Barbara Balog. 63 kj -1--I-4-Q .,,4,gs,,,g4 IJ f XA iw QR E3 Doris Hostetler I V Cheerleaders fa n J Kneeling B Miller, S Lumnitzer, erw P Tredennick Standing I Given, Statler, P Baldwin, M.

The varsity squad was ably led by Ann Grimaldi, captain, and Terrie Weaver, co-captain. The cheerleaders succeeded in winning fourth place honors in the annual cheerleading contest with their cheer, "Yellow Jacket's Praise.' During the year, the girls led the cheers at all football and basket- ball games and also planned many pep rallies to whip up the enthusiasm of the student body. There was also a Junior Varsity and Junior High squad which cheered for their respective basketball teams and prepared the girls for future varsity cheering squads. ek . , ajfjif ,J i'1c:'..fff'g'f,-cf lc- :.dZjQ4,,64.

Balog, Grimaldi .as -X .. - . x "Mr, Co-Ed," a comedy in three acts, was the vehicle for senior class dramatic talent this year. The locale of the play was Cedar Hill, an ex- clusive eastern school for girls. Cedar Hill, however, was so deeply in debt that even the ivy on the hallowed walls was mortgaged. The story revolved around the desperate need to convince Mrs. Cobina Colgate-Brewster, a rich but eccentric trustee, that she should contribute the necessary money. Mrs. Brewster consented on the condition that one Lotus Smith, her only grandchild whom she had never seen, must attend the school. Interest was heightened by the encroaching presence of one Mr. Oliver Lee Oliver and his new aviation cadet school. This growing institution needed facilities and sought to purchase Cedar Hill. Charming Eustacia Hayworth, dean of Cedar Hill, finally made the arrangements for the arrival of Lotus Smith, feeling that at last her financial difficulties were solved. However, to the consternation of every- one, Lotus turns out to be a swash-buckling cow poke, 6'4" tall, from Skeleton Hole, Wyoming. The remainder of the action centered around the decision to conceal the new male student's sex under petticoats and make-up, at least until after Mrs. Brewster's contribution could be assured. Interesting roles were included for Miss Carr, a frustrated poetry teacher, Miss Pooley, an indefatigable gym teacher, and Homer, the outspoken school handyman. As all good comedies do, the tangled circumstances gradually were rearranged, with the result that Cedar Hill was finally saved by Mrs. Brewster's repentant generosity, Homer successfully wooed the rich widow, and Lotus continued his education.

More and more, com- petitive sports have come to occupy a reserved niche in the program of the mod- ern school. Year after year, boys large and small from schools large and small, cavort and strain for personal and team glory and honor. Such endeavor typifies the American scene, whether it be the small fry on the asphalt playground of grammar school, the maturing youth in the shiny gymnasiums of high school, or young manhood on the hallowed gridirons of college cam- puses. Our school, competing frequently beyond its class against traditional rivals who have outgrown it, has found that victories grow harder to obtain, however, when victories are achieved, they are even sweeter for their elusive- ness. The past year has been a lean one in terms of football victories and basketball success, never- theless, we are happy to present in the following pages the pictures and stories concerning some interesting events in sports. We reaffirm our conviction that the poet voiced the athlete's true creed with the words: ...Not the quarry, but the chase. ...Not the trophy, but the race. gs .3 1 ' x ah f A, if ,Sv--'ff' K.

Hoffman Varsity Football: Our varsity football squad began the 1955 season with eight returning lettermen, including Hasse, Hildebrand, Ashcom, K. Kaufman, Sabo, McCann, Balog, and Michalides. Losing the services of Al Sabo and Bert Kaufman via early-season injuries, the squad carried on with many under-classmen in key posts. Being long on spirit and short on experience, the team fared badly in the win column, losing to every team except United Joint. ln spite of a rather dismal record, the gridders continued trying and learning throughout the campaign. In the final game against traditional rival Westmont, the Stingers faced an undefeated foe, but undermanned as they were, our Jackets succumbed bya39-0 score. Despite the poor record, the season produced valuable experience for many boys.

The J . V. squad had a comparatively successful season this year, posting a 4-2 record. The two losses came at the hands of Conemaugh Twp., 33-19, and Richland, 13-6. The four wins were recorded over Westmont, 21-7, Franklin, 8-0, Conemaugh, 19-0, and Boswell, 26-6. Individual scoring honors went to Paul Muffley with 26 points, and Bob Weaver with 25. The team was coached again this year by Mr. Jack Hyland. Many of the boys saw considerable action in var- sity contests, providing much experience for campaigns ahead. Jr. High Football: Under the direction of Mr. Nyle Hershberger, our large squad of Junior High hopefuls had a respectable season, winning one, tying three, and losing two games. The record included a 6-6 stalemate with Catholic, and scoreless deadlocks with Franklin and Conemaugh Twp. Defeated by Richland, 25-6, the little Jackets reversed the tables later to the tune of 26-0. The other loss was to Shade Twp. by a 20-13 tally. General public and school interest in the Junior High gridders was evidenced by good crowds at all games. , , gc' I g "fa,if,Yl9., 'vvigyi ' fa, rm' 5,4 . 'J T' X 1 .. ' A lan.

The Ferndale Thinclads in 1955 boasted a fairly suc- cessful season as they copped one of the three top places in the majority of their meets. The Stingers placed third in the opening quadrangular meet at Conemaugh Township. The Indians took first, with Windber and Ferndale battling it out to a close second and third. At the annual Coaches Meet in Altoona the Yellow Jacket Track Team copped a third 'place in class B com- petition. ln Tri-County competition the Stingers again held onto third place, placing behind two top teams of the district, Johnstown and Windber. Then the Ferndale Yellow Jackets defeated the Hill- toppers in two track meets at Price Memorial Field, with the Jacket Varsity scoring a 59-41 victory, and The Junior High a 59-37 triumph, The Stingers held a first place in almost every event. Ferndale dropped back to snag only a fifth place in the Junior Pitt Meet as they lagged behind amidst tough com- petition. Adams-Summerhill copped a first in the Class B events. 84 5 i ,Lv- 1 ,. L.

The 1955 Ferndale golf team, under the supervision of Coach Nyle Hershberger, went on to hold that superb record of all wins and no losses, as they completed their seventh straight year, undefeated. The five regulars on the team were Jim Gallagher, Bob Scheer, Bob Fetsko, Tom Balog, and Al Sabo, each of whom did a fine job in winning their matches against such teams as Jr. Pitt, Catholic High, and Ligonier. Other team members were Bob Swarny, Bob Kurtz, Bob Yeager, John Homyak, Herm Gehlman, Bill Gaspar, Ron Otto, Dick Hunt, and Ralph Skinklss. Ferndale won their opening match by downing Jr. Pitt, 10-8, in the closest battle of the season. The next match was at Ligonier with the Stingers coming out on top, 11 112-6 1f2. The last two matches were played at home with Catholic Hi, with the Yellow Jackets downing their rivals twice 15-3, and 23-2. The Ferndale High baseball team in 1955 broke even with a 6-6 record. One of the wins came on a forfeited game by Conemaugh. The Stingers were beaten twice by Johnstown, 3-0, and 3-1. Westmont also took Ferndale in hand twice by the score of 3-1 and 5-4. Franklin was the only team the Jackets were able to beat twice, our boys winning by scores of 8-4 and 6-2. Ferndale led the league in the number of hits per team. This was largely offset by the fact that they also had twice as many errors as any team they played. Few of the Jacket's hits went for extra bases, with Mick Zahoran hitting the team's only homer: Huck Hildebrand, Ted Hasse, and Ted Rager were the three lone pitchers of the Stinger mound staff. Hilde- brand posed a 3-2 record, while Ted Hasse had a 2-1 record and Rager a 0-3 log. Bob Scheer, one of our 1955 links- men. ,haf ,Q Baseball Team - 1955 First Row: B. Popchak, K. Kaufman, E.
