1939-40-As freshmen of 1940 we began to strive for our goal-to
be seniors. "Big shots" now, we strutted about the lower
halls defying anyone to seem superior to us. We had few
social activities, but, through the management of our home-
room chairmen and class sponsors, we arranged a "get-
acquainted" dance of our own. The crowning glory came
when we were promoted into Senior High.
1940-41-Being one step closer to our destination we enthusiastic-
ally opened our sophomore year. The noise and clatter
increased on the upper floor, and we were not so childish
as we had been only a year before. We elected officers:
President, Anne Ortmanp Vice-President, Raymond Pechang
Treasurer, Robert Holleyp and Secretary, Delores Sanko.
Through their able leadership we sponsored an important
and gala soiree-the Sophomore Hop. We were blossom-
ing out socially and gaining more sophisticated personali-
ties. Each had begun to feel "l am a part of all that I have
l94l-42-We were definitely older-much different from our
"green freshmen" stage. We got off to a snappy start by
celebrating Ford City High School's first undefeated and
untied football season with a Victory Dance featuring
Francis Patt's Crchestra. Now Iuniors, we were very much
in favor of an extensive social program. We sponsored the
Valentine Dance, the usual Iunior Play, and climaxed the
season with the traditional Iunior-Senior Prom. Officers
for this year were: President, Raymond Pechany Vice-Presi-
dent, Anne Ortmany Secretary, Meade Klingensmith: and
Treasurer, Madeline I-lnatiow.
1942-43-We have reached our goal, but we will not stop reaching
until We achieve still greater accomplishments in the future.
Boys are beginning to look at girls with more interest, and
girls are definitely interested in the boys. With the aid of
the class officers and co-operation of Mr. Marsh, our social
calendar is "filled to the brim" with events. Class officers
elected are: President, Meade Klingensmithg Vice-President,
Anne Ortmany Secretary, Frances Volekg and Treasurer.
Teddy lablonski. We hold the annual Hallowe'en Dance
followed up by several smaller dances and skates. Not to
be forgotten are the Senior Play, another success, and a
jolly Sadie Hawkins Dance. Spring arrives, and with it
comes, not love, but Baccalaureate and Commencement.
A feeling of emptiness and sadness enters each Senior's
heart-a feeling we try to drown with gaiety. Graduation,
the climax of twelve glorious years, comes and is gone.
We aren't Seniors now, but young men and women of
America, and so we take leave of our dear Alma Mater and
say, "So Long" from the class of 1943.

Let us turn the hands of thelclock back to pre-high school days when all
the eighth graders were looking forward to the time when they would be called
"Freshmen." At last in the fall of 1940, the students from the various schools
entered Ford City High's doors as Freshmen, all eager to make new acquaint-
ances and to find out what high school was all about. Like "big shots" they
strutted through the halls feeling superior to other students. Before they knew
it, the first semester was over and the second already started. A few tea dances
were held and they anxiously awaited the day when they would receive their
diplomas at Commencement Exercises. Thus the first quarter had slipped by
and they were ready for Senior High School.
The time changed to the second quarter and the same group, not so child-
ish as before, began the Sophomore year with eagerness and enthusiasm. This
year found them successfully sponsoring their own dances and skates, as well
as attending Junior and Senior affairs. Officers for the year were President,
Robert Cieplyp Vice President, Charles Sporneyp Secretary, Helen Zoszak: Treas-
urer, Rita Beuth. The school term was soon over and they were ready to enter
the third quarter.
Their Iunior year had a snappy start with a Victory Dance as their first big
affair. "Dutch" Campbell and his orchestra furnished the music. The Christ-
mas Dance, which was also a successful event, was followed by victrola
dances and skates. As the yearbook goes to press, plans are being made for
the Iunior-Senior Prom. They owe the success of this year to the splendid lead-
ership of Elsie Sellers, Presidentp Robert Cieply, Vice President: Pauline Sanoba,
Secretary: Tom Cole, Treasurer: and the Iunior Home Room Chairmen.
They still have the last quarter to complete. We hope that their Senior
year will be as pleasant as their past years have been.

The Sophomore Class of this year is the Class of '45. As Freshmen, the
class got a good start under the President, Helen Croyle and the Secretary, Lois
Hellman. The rest of the work was taken care of by the home room chairmen.
The members of the class showed a good spirit of cooperation by following their
leaders nicely. At the end of the term one hundred eighty-five members of the
class received certificates entitling them to enter Senior High School.
This fall those same students entered school as Sophomores. They
started the ball rolling by electing the following class officers: President, Andy
Dinko, Vice-President, lack Paifrathy Secretary, Lois Heilrnany and Treasurer,
Thomas Eddy. Unfortunately Andy Dinko left school. His vacancy was filled
by lack Paffrath, the former Vice-President.
The Class, under the leadership of their officers, intended to go places
and they succeeded. The Sophomores say, "We have kept the ball rolling so
far, and it isn't going to stop on us now."
The ambition of every Sophomore is only one-to become a Great Big
Iunior about whom they hear so much.

The Varsity Club, sponsored by Mr.
Campbell and Mr. Hubert Rupert, is made
up of those students who participated in
the varsity sports ot basketball and foot-
During the year the Varsity Club has
been in charge ot the scrap drive held at
the beginning ot the school term and has
ushered at the home basketball games.
By selling pictures of the basketball team,
the Club was able to finance itself.
The 1943 Trirenie was published under
some very tryiriq circumstances. The
scarcity of needed materials, the increased
cost of available materials, the inability of
our contractors to hold labor skilled in the
needed arts and fields all have added to
Nevertheless, we did try. We hope you
like our endeavor. Yes, there are some
mistakes in the book, but to err is human.
We have attempted to give you an out'
standinqly different book, one that will
always bring you back to those happy-
qo-lucky, carefree school days of l943.
While the world has been in a turmoil we
have pursued our own little plan of work
and play. Most of us have been happy
in ity and, if in future years this Book of
Memories recalls that happiness, it will
have served a purpose in which We are
proud to have had a part.

September 4 Night Ford City 0-Scott 0
Although Ford City had the ball on the 5 yard line three times, once as a result
of a blocked kick by Siniawski, we were unable to score. Outplaying our opponents
:rs far as first downs were concerned, we lacked the scoring punch. Scott presented
a problem by using an 8-man line, and our fumbles did not help any.
Having seen our team play such bang-up ball against this highly-touted eleven,
local fans looked forward to another really successful season.
September 12 Ford City 12-Vandergriit 7
Smith opened the scoring in the first quarter by running around end from the l2
yard line, but we failed to convert the extra point. In the second quarter Vandergrift
forged ahead 7-6, scoring on a long pass and converting the extra point.
Our battling eleven came out for the second half and marched 80 yards to score,
with Babe Fijal carrying the ball through the center on the deciding play. Ford City's
line held the strong Vandergrift offense to five first downs. As a result of the rough
playing, Siniawski received several cracked ribs.
September 18 Night Ford City 'I-Arnold 13
Three times in the first half Ford City went as far as the 5-yard line. Her chief
trouble was dissension in the huddle.
Arnold used a tricky cut-back play, enabling them, within three minutes, to
shake loose their backs for two runs of 55 and SO yards. Beyond this, they were
never inside our 40-yard line.
Fourth quarter: Siniawski blocked a kick, Kamer recovered on enemy's 35, two
successive first downs were made, Babe Fijal passed to Smith resulting in our only
touchdown. Babe Pijal converted on a line plunge.
October 3 Ford City 13-Swissvale 19
Swissvale drew first blood on an 18-yard end run. ln the second quarter, Ford,
City marched 70 yards and culminated this with Babe Fijal scoring on a center plunge.
This feat was repeated in the third quarter with the added attraction of a pass from
Babe Fijal to loe Buff giving us the extra point. Rogan and Hank Fijal played good
ball. Late in the last quarter Swissvale scored on a 30-yard pass to the left halfback
and then converted.
A desperate Ford City team tried an aerial attack which back-fired when Anthony
intercepted and ran G7 yards for the winning touchdown.

On a wet and cold day Ford City's Purple Raiders took the field as the underdog
to a very good Coraopolis team.
Alter an exchange of punts Siniawski blocked a kick and Bob Kamer recovered
for a touchdown. Hall score was 6-0 Ford City.
The teams exchanged plays on the muddy field until early in the fourth quarter
when Ford City took the ball on their own 40, marched 60 yards for a touchdown with
A. Fijal going over from the 2. The Fijal brothers, Sirochman, Smith, and Rogan took
turns in carrying the ball in this drive. As time ran out Ford City was again threat-
ening lrom the 10-yard line.
November ll Ford City 48-Kittcmninq 0
This was the game to which everyone looked forward-it was a game that could
have made Kittarinings season, or helped heal some ol the wounds of Coaches Camp-
bell and Rupert. Alter the first eight minutes, it was Ford City all the way. Touch-
downs were made in this order-Hank Fiial raced 25 yards, Brother Babe plunged
two and made one on a pass, Bufl recovered a kick Siniawski had blocked, Kamer
and Rogan each intercepted a pass for theirs. Kiene and Sirochman broke into the
scoring column on extra points.
Clean play marked the contest on the part of both teams. Much of the credit must
go to those boys who will never again don the Purple shirts and Gold pantsy namely,
Captain Pechan, Siniawski, Cheer, Kasun, Kamer, Bull, Kiene, Sirocliman, and l-lank
THOAMSWICK KLINGENSMITH ACTION AT KITTANNING DODDS l-IOLLEY
KARL BYRON SHEASLE
lt took more than the prospects of en-
tering a football season without a field
or of strict governmental regulations
on travel to discourage the thirty-five boys
who came out for football during the
August "call" Working hard and long
for the first game only two weeks off,
Coaches Campbell and Rupert prepared
a team worthy of the name, Ford City,
from a squad composed of many who
were out for the first time.
Halfway through the season the prac-
tice field was changed from the ballpark
to the Seventh Avenue "Gravel pile".
Here the boys worked even harder and
much credit must be given to the Fresh-
men, Sophomores, and Iuniors who stood
up time after time only to be knocked
down again by heavier, more experienced
lt is the consensus of opinion that the
team was better than the records show.
However, we did score l2l points to our
opponents' 86 points. The season showed
three wins, four defeats, and one tie.
This years Basketball squad consisted
ot thirteen players, three managers and
two coaches. These eighteen, plus long
hours ot hard work and practice, produced
a champion team. The tirst part ct the
season looked bad for Ford City, with
travel curtailed, a poor-showing team and
a chance of the coach leaving for the
Navy. But as time went by the govern-
ment lifted certain bans, the team showed
it had the "stuff", and Mr. Campbell plan-
ned to stay with us. The Glassers made
an unirnpressive showing in their pre-
season games by losing four and Winning
three. But the Forders broke loose, won
eight straight games to tie up the Section I
Championship, and then went on to the
finals in the WPIAL.
Six ot the thirteen members are seniors
and will be lost this year, while the other
seven are all juniors who will be playing
their last games next year. Much credit
should be given to the managers, espe-
cially the senior manager, Ioe Perry of the
U. S. Army, who did great Work in football

VANDERGRIFT 28-22 Home
Ford City opened their basketball season by de-
feating a scrappy Vandergrift team in a slow 28-22
victory. The Glassers did not look too promising an
this game but fought hard the whole way.
APOLLO 25-24 Away
The Forders met their first defeat as they traveled
to Apollo. After coming up from a fifteen-point deficit
the Glassers lost in the last minute of play to a good-
looking Apollo five.
HOMESTEAD 25-22 Away
Ford City won fame as they took over an "unbeat-
able" Homestead team which had won their first five
games. Ford City looked like a championship team as
they put up an lmpregnable zone defense but almost
lost out as the Stealers heaved them overhead.
AMBRIDGE 33-25 Away
The Forders' fame was short, as they took a mer-
ciless beating at the hands of the "Bridgers" by the
score of 33-25. Ford City was slow, weak, and dumb
as compared to a superior LOOKING Ambridge team.
BBNTLEYVILLE 41-25 Home
Host again, this time to a graduate of Ford City
High, Nick Carlesi, the Campbell men after a slow
start, took the game into their own hands and won
easily from little-known Bentleyvtlle, 41-25.
APOLLO 38-20 Home
Ford City looked a bit dazed after the smashing
defeat suffered at the hands of the Apollo team. This
brought the number lost and the number won to an
ALUMNI 51-30 Home
Again the Forders seemed to be tn a trance as an
All-Star Alumni team rolled up the largest score the
Glassers have yet had against them.
'NEW KENSINGTON 32-22 Away
Ford City opened up their league games by trav-
eling to Ken Hi. This game was different as Ford City
really went to work and beat a good Ken Hi team by
a score of 32-22. Folta led the locals by racking up
'ARNOLD 20-14 Away
Ford City took to the road, this time to invade
Arnold. The game started off very slow as the F orders
led at half-time by a score of only 9-6. The second half
was a little better but scoring was scarce. All ended
well, though, as Ford City won 20-14. Holley led the
attack with nine points. Folta's playing and Pound-
stone's playing were the main factors in this victory.
'KITTANNING 41-29 Home
Ford City, playing host this game to their old rival
Kittanning, led throughout the tussle and won easily
41-29. All the Ford City players saw action this game.
Pechan was high man with 10 points.
'HAR-BRAC! 49-30 Away
Ford City captured their fourth section triumph in
a row at Har-Brack .by the score of 49-30. Holley led
the attack with 13 points. Zilla and Folta each con-
tributed ten points, thus keeping Ford City in the lead
throughout the game.
'BUTLER 32-24 Home
Butler's Golden Tornado came scurrying to town
this day but didn't fare too well as Ford City triumphed
again to the tune of 32-24. Ford City played an ex-
cellent ball game-in the first half-and led by a score
of 21-10. Poundstone was high man with 13 points.
Folta and Pechan's rebound work was superb through-
out the game.
VANDERGRIFT 34-22 Away
Ford City at Vandergrift took a non-league win by
the score of 34-22. It looked bad for the Glassers at
the end of the first half as they trailed 15-9. But Ford
City came back and playing like a championship team
walked away with a victory. Folta and Zilla were
high men with 10 points apiece.
'NEW KENSINGTON 39-28 Home
The Campbell Clan played host to Ken 1-li and won
an important league game 39-28. The first half was a
nip and tuck affair with Ford City leading 25-16. The
second half was a little better as the Forders pulled
away from their foe. The Kensters made one last
feeble try but the time expired. Holley was high scorer
with 16 points.
'ARNOLD 34-20 Home
Ford City, really going to work this game, won
easily over the defending WPIAI.. Champs by a score
of 34-20. The first half ended with the Glassers leading
16-14 but the second half was all Ford City, as Arnold
scored only six points to the Forders 18. Folta and
Poundstone showed up well on rebound work with
Pechan looking good on his pass work: Zilla led the
'KITTANNING 45-27 Away
Playing before a capacity crowd the Glassers
clinched the Section One Crown by putting a scrappy
Klttanning team on its knees 45-27. The first half was
a hard one as the Purple and Gold Clan led by only
two points, 17-15. The second half the Forders pulled
way ahead with Lewis playing an outstanding game.
. . . -. 861-5017-
Kittanning was outscored in both the third and fourth
quarters 14-6. Lewis was high man with 11. Zilla
next with 10.
'HAR-BRAC! 35-40 Home
With a natural one word let down on their hands
the Glassers tried desperately to stop a sharp shooting
and aggressive Har-Brac team but just couldn't put out
enough and lost their only section game 35-40. The
Glassers looked as they had in most of their pre-season
games. Zilla was high scorer for the locals with 12
'BUTLER 39-25 Away
Ford City came back to win their last section game
39-25. It was an easy game for the Glassers as Butler
missed many shots. All of the Glassers squadmen
played in this game.
Ford City met Brentwood in their first game in the
tournament and won easily 36-24. The score at the
end of the first half was 15-7 with the Glassers in the
lead. The second half was much faster, as Brentwood
tried to overcome their defense but the Forders kept
their lead in check. Holley and Poundstone were lead-
ing scorers with 12 and 9 points respectively. Folta,
Zilla, and Pechan should be commended on their in
and out ball rolling.
In a semi-final game which brought together two
well balanced teams Ford City won a nip and tuck
battle 29-25. Ambridge was leading at the end of the
first half 16-14. The second half looked like a revised
Ford City edition as they outplayed the enemy through-
out. Ambridge tried hard to come back but it was too
late, as the Forders had too great a lead. Holley led
the attack with ten points.
Performing before a PACKED house, Ford City and
Scott met in the WPIAL Championship game. Both
teams started with a bang and kept an even pace
throughout the first half. Scott held a slight edge at
half-time 21-18. The second half was a bit slower.
Ford City crept at one time to within one point of the
enemy but couldn't overcome that obstacle. Scott
seemed to get new life and surged to a five point lead
which was not overcome by the locals. Folta was key
man for the Forders with 10 points. Ford City went
down fighting-a great TEAM.
