The senior class of one thousand nine hundred and forty-six pre-
sents this Trireme to the faculty, students, and alumna of Ford City High
We are living in one of the most critical periods of world history.
During this recent period, there has been a general scarcity of good
materials, and it seemed advisable not to publish a book last year. We
are thankful that, in spite ofthe current shortage ot goods, we have been
able once again to publish our Trireme.
It was through the helpful cooperation of the faculty, student body,
and stat? that this edition of our Annual has been prepared for publica-
tion. We hope that as you turn these pages, you may find those things
which will ever remind you of those happy days which we spent together
in Ford City High School.

Echoing shore on shore
The brood Allegheny rings
Clothed with sunlight gold.
The hcze o'er the purple hills
The tog, the mist, the rocks, the
Reflections ot Ford City brings.
Working hord side by side
Are students from tor and near
Thrilled with the zeol to do,
Fired by the pledge to tryg
With cheerful spirits ond heorts
They sing of the Ford City High
Even in days to come,
Our fond memories will cling
Steodtczst to purple and gold.
And wide will our banners tlingy
With loycmlty cmd pride shall we
Our tribute to Ford City bring.

"A Case of Springtime" directed by Mrs. Virginia Held, was presented by
the Junior Class on April 11.
For one evening the Parker family had their residence in the High School
Auditorium. The troubles of Bob Parker, a typical senior boy, and the antics of
his younger brother, Dickie, kept the audience laughing. Joan Abernaker, Bob's
sweetheart, and sweet Gwen Anderson, Dickie's flame, added the touch of rom-
ance that is typical of spring. Everyone, including Mr. Abernaker, the high
school principal, seemed to be angry with poor Bob. Bob's often trying sister,
Betty, and her ever present shadow, Eddie, tried to help, but were unsuccessful.
When Miss Bright arrived from the zoo, all of Bob's troubles were cleared up
and the Parker home once more settled down to a peaceful existence.

without the other. Printing has made possible our present system of
education, through printing we are able to commune with the great
minds of the past, by means of printing the present is being recorded
for the benefit of future generations as yet unborn.

guide them in their respective professions.
Valuable aid in carrying out this responsibility is the use of materials
of sound design and quality. Such materials inspire the student.
