"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 met." l94l-42-We were definitely older-much different from our THE TRIREME Page 26 "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.

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.

Anne Ortrnan, Frank Fair For their play this year, the Seniors chose the romantic drama, "What Anne Brought Home," and presented it to a most appreciative audience at 8:15, De- cember 4, 1942. When Anne Bennett brought home, instead of the expected dry goods, a man her husband it disconcerted the Ben- nett household considerably. However, in a laughable mixup about 'cranberry' swamps, fish farms, and real estate deals, affairs ended happily and profitably for all. we jznior cfm, pf., Between acts Frank Pair played a violin solo, "Salut d' Amour", and Shirley Yates sang two numbers, "My Hero" and "White Christmas." lust before the curtain rose for the last act, Kenneth Shumaker called Mrs. Ham- mond, the coach, to the front and on behalf of the cast presented her with a large vase filled with roses.

Rupert 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- ball. During the year the Varsity Club has t 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 our headaches. 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.

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. PUTZ HOGAN CHEER KASUN l-l.

The Glassers were scored on twice more during the first hall. The midway swore was 20-2 Springdale, a safety having been scored by Bull.

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 Fiial. SMITH SCOTT gws THOAMSWICK KLINGENSMITH ACTION AT KITTANNING DODDS l-IOLLEY KARL BYRON SHEASLE flwflaff ?lflf6'lfC! 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, THE TRIREME Page 64 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 first stringers. 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. fgafefgaf WILULJ 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 and basketball.

Pre-Season 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 score. 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 nine points. '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 scoring. '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 points. '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. BRENTWOOD 36-24 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. AMBRIDGE 29-25 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. SCOTT 34-29 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. THE TRIREME Page 67 j0l"6!
