Enter any large, strange building.
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
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.

Barbara Cowan, Sec re ta ry-
Discoveries may be of many types. 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.

Stick 'em up.
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

Long files of noisy spectators shuffle
forward. 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
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.

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
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

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.

In their first season under head coach Richard N.
Rigby, our varsity cagers ended the season with a
record of twelve wins and twelve losses. lnthe Tri-
County League race, our boys finished a very
creditable second, with a record of eight wins and
Bob Weaver and Dick Sanker waged a hot race
all season for individual scoring leadership, with
Weaver emerging with a total of 362 and Sanker f
with 354. Three Sophomore members of the squad,
Jeroy, Povich, and Wissinger, contributed signifi-
cantly to the fine record, while McCann, Clawson,
Hunt, Gander, and Kuhs provided bench strength.
Pre-game huddle with Coach Rigby.
From dejected bench-warmer to vital substitute - go to it, Jim!

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-
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

Our golf team oflast spring, coached
by Mr. Nyle Hershberger, suffered its
first team defeat in many years. Play-
ing only two matches on North Fork
Country Club's extensive course, the
linksmen split with Catholic High. Bad
weather hampered the team and pre-
vented the scheduling of more matches.

The baseball season last spring is probably
best remembered for its horrible weather The
Tri Country league schedule was plagued by
frequent wash outs and postponements while
team practice was virtually curtailed Playing
only five games under Coach Jack Hyland our
Stingers didn t manage to win a ball game In
the opener Westmont shut out Ferndale 5 0
Then Indiana took our boys 7 3 and Conemaugh
followed with a 4 0 conquest After a loss to
Johnstown by a 5 3 count our diamond sports
men closed the season with a slugfest against
Westmont with Verndale losing the decision by
a 13 12 score
