Tip-toe along wax-shined halls and gaze, fascinated, at closed, silent doors. Listen to the muffled hum of busy life, confused but vibrant. Re- flect upon the muted whispers beyond those walls, or ponder the message of that tapping sound. Gain a measure of courage, and respond to that urge to peek inside those inviting doors. But, just now, enter if you please the friendly atmosphere of Ferndale High School. Walk quietly down long, clean halls, Listen, too, as the sounds of work and play blend from behind closed doors. Thrill to the faint sound of melodic voices in choral practice, chill at the rising cresendo of excited screams of athletic strife deep in the heart of the building. Pause at the roar- ing beat of many type-writers in a frenzied speed effort, contrasted with U00 the brassy, triumphant march blared out by a band. Go anywhere in this building, and hear this mixed chorus of familiar sounds - the hint of shop, home, office, or play. Respond to that desire to open these doors. Catch a fleeting glimpse of an exciting place full of bustle and activity. Here is life! Our doors are open. Our welcome mat is at your feet. Follow us through these pages of open doors, and learn to know and love our school. 2 fd' V Y ,I,,.. 1-1 Opportunity Happiness -2- f"If7 iflo --LV' Z7 -N If 'IVI V af 'c 7- Q-f 2 -7 Popularity Success Q3- Wealth :E L2- fi gi a,w w 1 1 x 1 1 3 ,a 'Z 5 Service , Tig' Nui' , 'U 'ffm qffl' .,,.4-r 3 Dedication Mr. Ned McGhee, to whom we dedicate this issue of the Reflector, has taught at Ferndale for seven years. Witty and friend- ly, he has ably conducted popular Spanish classes, instructed senior English, and guided the dramatic arts group. He has di- rected numerous excellent plays and has been outstanding as interlocutor in the P,T.A. minstrels. Married to one of our former teachers, Mr. McGhee is the father of two boys. He holds an A,B. degree with a major in Span- ish from Wilkes College. Upon graduation, he spent a year in New York at the Feagin School of Drama, and in 1954 received a Master of Education degree from the Uni- versity of Pittsburgh. gf' fy? Y. Board of Education The Board of Education of Greater Ferndale High School is made up of many public-spirited citizens ofthe jointdistricts. On the first Thurs- day of each month, this twenty-member board assembles at Greater Ferndale High School for its monthly meeting. The entire groupis divided into six committees with each member serving on two of them, Some of the problems confront- ing the board are budget, activities, personnel, property, textbooks, and supplies. -Jf.c1..,,, G.

The wise old world has witnessed the fruitful search for new continents, the revelation of ancient civil- izations, and the successful application of the wonder drugs. Within our times the phenomena of electron emission and the amazing fission of the atom have filled us with wonder. To every student our modern classroom offers equally exciting moments of discovery each day. Through education, one may conquer time and space, and be transported into the remote reaches of man's dimly remembered past, or he may fly on the wings of fancy into the brave new world of tomorrow. The Einsteins and Edisons, the Tennysons and Brownings, or the Lincolns and Wilsons of history probably had no better beginnings. Their opportunities were likely less adequate. The creative mind of man at work under encouraging environment will continue to uncover new and marvelous things. Such is the doorway open to all students, everywhere. The latch will open to a touch.

This year's senior play was a three-act farce entitled 'Host to a Ghost", lt was presented by the capable cast early in December. Mrs. Catherine Rodgers, our new librarian, was the director. The play opened with stage-struck Polly Peters confiding in her younger brother, Marty, and neighborhood pal, Nancy Dean. She reveals that a big-shot theatrical agent is coming to hear her sing. She has written to him, claiming to bea glamorous star training under a famous vocal teacher. To keep her parents from discovering her deceit, Polly convinces them to drive to a dis- tant city for Cousin Linda who is planning to visit them. Polly then tries to persuade her kid brother to pose as her teacher. Meanwhile, cousin Linda comes by train, and arrives at the Peters' home accompanied by a ghost! The weird happenings that followed had the household in an uproar. Finally the theatrical agent arrives and neatly gets invited to remain over night. This man eventually proves to be a swindler who holds the family captive. After play- ing hair-raising hide-and-seek with the ghost, the kids are glad to welcome Mr. and Mrs. Peters upon their return. ln the end, everything worked out nicely with the capture of the unscrupulous plotters who had sought to cheat Linda out of her money. 7, M ...la lr ',l 'r Host to lm M ff- 3 3' Have a nice trip, Somebody call the cops.

Q Student Government Our student council is an organization designed to work toward student welfare and to stimulate student interest in our school. A practical ex- periment in representative democracy, this body consists of two delegates from each home room plus presidents of all clubs and organizations. ln the spring of each year the person who will succeed to the presidency of council is chosen by popular vote of the student body. Edward Janosko, our popular, all-round senior, was elected for this year. Council met regularly once a week throughout the year, planning various events and projects, A major contribution to the school by council was the student handbook, listing pertinent information about grades, dates, and regulations. Council also sponsored the Christmas dance and the February Valentine dance, as well supervising "safety first" efforts during the noon hour. 4-.fre ...f Student Council Officers Seated: Mr. Allison, Adivsor, T.

Turnstiles click, coins jingle, and monotonous voices repeat again and again, "tickets, please." To the average student or interested adult, this is just another game. But to the poised and eager athlete, it is more than that. Perhaps it is his gateway to glory. For some, this glory may be the de- lighted cheers of the crowd. It could be the warm clasp of Dad's big hand and the wel- come sound of, "Well done, Son." The gate- way could even lead to awelcomed scholar- ship for the hero of the fray. Of course, no honest athlete seeks per- sonal gloryg his aim is higher, for he aspires only to bring honor and victory to his school. This year our athletes have had their moments of glory, and our school has thrilled at their successes. Here we pass again through some of those exciting gate- ways to glory. Varsity Cheerleaders .

Scash 'eml' With these words the 1956 cheerleading squad soared to victory in the thirteenth annual cheerleading contest. The victory made our school the first to win the contest four times. This year's squad consisted of four seniors, three juniors, and three sophomores, elected last spring by the student body. The girls were led by captain Donna Holmok and co-captain Barbara Goss. They were directed by the faculty advisor, Miss Dorothy Lance. The squad cheered at all football and basket- ball games, and led the assembly pep rallies. ln November the J.V. and Junior High cheer- leaders were chosen. They cheered at their respective basketball games.

Successful Gridders-Victors Over Westmont To a Ferndale team starved for victory over a traditional foe, the 1956 campaign came to a thrilling, wonderful climax with a convincing victory over the red and gray of Westmont. With a hard-charging forward wall clearing the way, Paul Muffley scored both Ferndale touchdowns, one early in the game, another in the third period, to win, 13 - 7. With ten lettermen reporting to new head coach Jack Hyland in August, the squad spent a rough but profitable week at Camp Blue Knob before the opening of school. Plagued by injuries to key players such as Bert Kaufman, Bob Weaver, and Paul Muffley, the team suffered tough-sledding in early games. Opening against Richland at Windber Stadium, the Jackets were swamped by a score of 32 - O. On a soggy field at United Joint High our boys were nipped by a 6 - 0 score, and then absorbed a 46 - 0 lacing from a good Conemaugh Township team. Playing a rnuch improved brand of ball against Catholic High in a 7 - 7 tie game, and in a scoreless duel with Cone- maugh, our gang broke into the win column against a weak Adams Township squad, 21 - 6, On a cold wind-swept field at Franklin another 0 - 0 deadlock resulted as our boys fought off a closing spree. Then a thrilling Point Stadium encounter against Bedford resulted in last-quarter defeat for our Jackets, 20 - 14, but the great Westmont game victory spelled SUCCESS for a season in which our squad improved steadily.

Compiling a season's record of one win, two ties, and three losses, the Junior Varsity foot- ball squad performed capably for their new coach, Richard Rigby, ln addition to this six game schedule, many of the boys got additional chances by appearing in varsity encounters. Nudged aside by Conemaugh Township by a 6-0 margin in the opener, the squad then was nipped, 13-12, by Richland. At Westmont an interesting game ended in a 6-6 deadlock, while Catholic squeaked by in a sharp 7-6 engagement. The squad then took Franklin into camp by a 20-0 count, and closed the campaign against Adams in a 6-6 tie. The boys now move upto fill vacancies on our varsity eleven.

Jr. High Football Under the watchful eye of Coach Nyle Hershberger and his assistant, Mr. Allison, our Junior High gridders worked through a six game schedule in which they improved as the season progressed. Gaining needed game experience and working long practice hours on fundamentals, the squad produced many boys who will earn their F on the varsity in years ahead. Defeated by Catholic Jr. High by a 14-0 count in the opener and by Richland, 21-7 in their next outing, the Baby Stingers were then barely nosed out by Adams 14-13. Following a fourth loss to Conemaugh Township by a 32-0 score, Fern- dale won its only victory, a 36-0 romp over Franklin. The season closed with a 0-0 stalemate with Shade.

Spring Sports With only two lettermen returning, the thin- clads of Coach Michaels faced a difficult schedule under unfavorable training weather. Opening against Dale, our boys were victorious, 91-28, but in the next outing were taken over by Somer- set, 81-37, ln the big district meets, such as the Coaches, Tri-County, Johnstown Pitt, and District Six events, our boys finished well down among the also-rans. Probably the greatest ray of light of the track season was the sterling performance of little Ed Dallape in the 440 and 880 yard runs. Ed toppled meet records on several occasions as he brought numerous first place medals home to Ferndale. B, Weaver, P. Muffley. 186-.
