Senior Hlass af
Greater 9ernaale J-lian Senaal,
In a day when teen-age boys and
girls are blamed for bad manners,
wild behavior, and a general lack of
interest in the finer things of life,
we wish to take exception to such
attitudes. We therefore dedicate this
issue of the Reflector to the true
teen-age spirit. We shall show the
teen-age world as our students live it.
It is really a world of hard work,
high ambition, spiritual awareness,
and good fellowship. The modern high
school youngster leads a full and ex-
citing life, complete with sports, good
books, exhilarating play, and marvelous
opportunities for learning.

The Senior Class of 1958 has been a class of
many firsts in the records of F. H, S, Beginning Seni0r0if1cers
Richard Nau, vice-presidentgJackie
Stephey, presidentg Ray Homola,
their freshmen year with 80 students, there have
been four new arrivals and twenty departures from
the classg thus 64 remain for graduation.
As freshmen they were shy students, idolizing
seniors. As sophomores the class elected Jackie
Stephey as president, re-electing her in the jun-
ior and senior years. An outstanding innovation by
this class was the "fun night", now so popular in
the school. A very successful magazine campaign
was conducted during their junior year, followed by
an outstanding prom. Students from this class were
charter members in many new school clubs.
Jim McCann has been the only five-letter man in
the history of the school.
With talented members performing, the class
presented outstanding assembly programs and two
fine plays -'Grandma Goes to Town" in their
junior year and "Time Out for Ginger' in their
senior year. MY

duced a fine assembly, good scholars, a suc-
cessful play, and many athletic stars.
Their long wait for the arrival of class
rings was finally rewarded in late December.
ln January the Prom Committee was chosen
and serious planning was begun for the big
spring-time event. Other class officers were
Vice-President Mike Povich and Secretary-
Treasurer Mary Ann Gomulka.

Under the leadership of their new presi-
dent, Norm Gavazzoni, the Sophomore Class
gradually took over their position as an im-
portant part in the school's program. Contrib-
uting their members as outstanding cheer-
leaders, musicians, and athletes, the class gave
real promise for the future when they take
over as school leaders.
Activities in which the under-classmen par-
ticipate as a group have been somewhat limi-
ted, but individuals in the class have been
active. Production of a February assembly
program and a spring fun-night were high-

Organized with their officers for the first
time, the freshmen eagerly sought to earn
a place in our clubs and sports. With Terry
Blue as their president, the ninth graders
showed enthusiasm for junior high sports, band,
cheering and clubs.
Many of the class worked diligently to
achieve their place on the honor rolls, as they
were introduced to Latin, algebra, civics and
general science. A future career as a class
of achievement seems likely for this group.

A year has passed since we entered Fern-
dale High as scared little kids. Now we know
our way around. We have become accustomed
to Mr. Lesneski and his geography assignments,
and we read books 'like mad' in Mrs. Blough's
book club. And golly, what fun we have in Miss
Spangler's history classes!
Of course, those regular trips to deten-
tion upset us now and then, but we make up
for such things by being real jitterbugs at
school. dances and volunteering for sports and
clubs open to us. You know, this school is
beginning to be some fun, and we're just
really beginning, man! Wait 'til next year-

Devoting their energies and efforts toward
producing a unique, different yearbook, the Re-

been purchased by the daily work of the staff in
servicing the candy machines.
With capable editors and devoted staffers, the

good beginning by holding a much en-
joyed 'Sadie Hawkins' Day Dance. At
Christmas time our school was put into
the Yuletide spirit when the Y-Teens
did the decorating,
Contributing stuffed animals to the
Red Cross was another of their varied
activities. Mrs. Campbell was advisor

Our pretty, high-stepping beauties
have been a real asset to our band,
football half-time shows, and basket-
ball entertainment. With five seniors,
two sophomores, and a freshman among
the group, the girls practiced hard to
work out the different dance and twirl-
ing routines. Other activities where
their excellent appearances were ap-
preciated included the cheerleading
contest, school pep meetings, the spring
music concert, and our exchange as-

Directed by Mr. William Williams and led bv
drum majorette Charlotte Szelazek, the Yellow
Jacket Band performed with distinction at our
football games. The addition of snappy white
buck shoes to the regulation uniform improved
the appearance of the outfit.
Appearing in the annual Halloween parade as
black and gold yellow jackets, the band received
applause and comments of appreciation. ln addi-
tion to the notable service of the group during
football season, members also helped with

Serving her first year as chorus director at
Ferndale, Miss Mary Cagley had a big job.
Conducting the Thanksgiving assembly and a
Christmas choral program kept her very busy.
She worked with the senior mixed-chorus, junior
mixed-chorus, and several smaller groups such
as the girls' trio and the boys' quartet. The trio
sang at intermission of the Senior Play and for
our exchange assemblies.
In the spring came the annual forensic
competition which required much work by the
instructor and the senior chorus members. The
choral groups also took part in the Spring Con-
cert which was held in May.

Two groups of girls have served this
year in varying capacities in the library.
The seventh and eighth grade girls, with
Mrs. Rodgers as their advisor, met every
other Wednesday during Club group B's
period, Besides learning the duties of a li-
brarian, they helped with keeping the bulletin
board up to date and attractive. They also
made clever book markers for distribution
with library books.
The other group of girls, grades nine to
twelve, were volunteers who gave upastudy
period once a week to aid with desk work,
shelving of books, or caring for magazines.
The experience received by the girls, plus
the help given to the librarian, made the
activity well worthwhile.

ture of the student body at assembly periods.

by rows, their courteous manner, and con-
sistent performancc help the administration
and faculty to maintain a smoothly func-

"Time Out for Ginger" proved to be a hila-
rious hit as an excellent cast performed capa-
bly under the direction of Mr. Ned McGhee and,
his student assistants, Jackie Stephey and Eve-
The action in the play centered upon the
amusing antics of Ginger, the tom-boy daughter
of a talkative, eccentric banker. When her father
made a controversial speech at the local high
school advocating the right of youngsters to do
only what they wished, Ginger obliged by going
out for football.
Despite violent opposition of many parties,
Ginger insisted upon her decision, supported
only by her father and the family maid, Lizzie.
After many complicating moments, all turned
out well when Ginger realized that being a girl
was more fun than playing football.

Ferndale's team headed for its annual train-
ing week at Camp Blue Knob with eleven return-
ing lettermen. With this favorable
outstanding season was expected, and
it was. The record shows the leas
losses by a Ferndale grid team in recent years.
With five wins, two losses, and one
ing another sweet victory over our traditional
rival, Westmont, this outcome was accomplished
by an extremely light, but rough and
ln the opener againstRichland Township, who
had an undefeated season, the Rams
a high school rarity, a field goal, to defeat the
jackets by 10-7. Our boys then broke
column with a 25-7 romp over United Joint.

Next came the surprise of the year. Fighting
like wild animals, our gang held Conemaugh
'Township to a 0-0 deadlock ina game marked by
its rugged line play. Next, inagame in which the
Jackets ran wild in the second half, they defeated
Catholic High, 22-0. Behind adevastating ground
attack, the Jackets trampled aheavy Conemaugh
team, 32-O. Then, following a two-week layoff
caused by the flu, our gang routed Boswell, 54-7,
running up the highest single game total for the
year in this area. On November 9, on a cold and
snowy field, the Jackets battled to a wonderful
13-2 victory over Westmont. ln the last game, the
hard-fought season took its toll and the Jackets
bowed to Adams' inspired play, 24-6.

The players on our junior
varsity team were sophomores
and juniors who did not play
varsity. The squad played afull
schedule, except for games can-
celed because ofthe flu. Playing
under Coach Dick Rigby the boys
performed capably, compilinga
fair record, and gaining val-
uable experience to prepare
them for next year when they
will fill vacancies left by de-
parting senior regulars. A few

Mr. Charles Allison. Under
such careful and friendly in-

on mastering the fundamentals
of the sport. Improving continu-
ously throughout their success-

prospects who will be assets
for the junior varsity next year.

Again as in past years, our school has
reason to be proud of our varsity cheerleaders.
During the football and basketball season, aid-
ing in such activities as pep meetings, bonfires,
and poster-campaigns, they did much to gen-
erate school spirit.
Acting as hosts, the cheerleaders conducted
a successful and entertaining district cheer-
leading contest at the War Memorial Arena.
Our squad had won the contest the previous
year with the cheer, "Scash 'Em." Trophies
for the event went to Johnstown Catholic, first
place, Westmont, second, and to Central Cam-

Winding up their campaign with four con-
secutive victories, Ferndale's basketball squad
ended with a respectable record of twelve wins
and ten losses. Under Coach Richard Rigby, in
his second year at the helm, the squad finished
in fourth place in the tough Tri-County League
with seven wins and five losses. The regular
starting five of Wissinger, Povich, Kuhs, Jeroy,
and Clawson received strong support from a
capable bench. Gander, Garner, Sass, Kesslak,
and Miljanovich provided the fast-breaking var-
sity five with the necessary reserve strength.
Offsetting a definite lack of height by teamwork
and an aggressive, full-court press, the squad
played several outstanding games. Highlights
were narrow losses to Portage with sky-scraper
Len Chappell and to Johnstown. In a thrilling
win over Westmont, our team eliminated the
Hilltoppers from contention in the league. Lead-
ing Jacket scorers and their point totals were as
follows: Wissinger, 341, Povich, 276g Clawson,
182, Jeroy, 1753 Garner, 127, and Kuhs, 114.
