The Ford City High School Band is one of the most prominent organizations
of the school. With its forty players, six snappy drum maiorettes and four color
bearers, the band did well its part in the football games this past season. The
band has always shown itself willing to do its bit in all community activities.
This year four members Pat Fester, Pat Green, Lee Ray Green, and John
Stroud were chosen to represent our school at the Central Western District Band
Festival held at Meyersdale. Fifteen members also attended the County Band
Festival at Dayton. After long hours of work, patience, and cooperation the
annual spring concert was presented in May.
Under the direction of Mr. Zimmer the band rehearses every Tuesday and
Thursday evening after school.

might help us to fit into this great industrial program which all of us are facing.
In our home economics classes our girls are learning how to meet the impor-

Through our science department we have been ushered into that great
unknown field by which much of the world's marvelous achievements have been
Recognizing too that the economic prosperity of a people is dependent to a
degree upon their knowledge of business principles and skills, our school prepares
us by instruction and practice in the commercial field.
Realizing that without art and the things of beauty our life would be drab

The purpose of the Tri-Hi-Y is to create, maintain and extend throughout
the school and community high standards of Christian Character.
It was a busy and successful year for the club. Besides the usual events
in the program of the organization they sold refreshments at the home football
games and sponsored a "Tag Day" for the March of Dimes. Other events of
the year were a Christmas Party for the first and second grade pupils and "clean-
up week" for the school. The newest service which the Tri-Hi-Y added to their
already long list is the impressive Friday morning devotional exercises which
were broadcast throughout the building over our public address system.
The Tri-Hi-Y may well appreciate the guidance and help which Miss Thomp-
son has given them.
The Trireme Staff congratulates the Tri-Hi-Y for its services in our school

Since the Gregg Secretarial Club was organized in 1933, it is one ofthe most
active clubs in the school. It is composed of advanced students in shorthand and
this year has l2 members. Meetings are held regularly every two weeks. lts
primary purpose is to conduct business meetings in accordance with parliamen-
tary law, to secure actual secretarial training, and promote a friendly spirit
among the fellow members.
The biggest proiect undertaken by the club was the business management
ofthe Trireme. The members sold 615 yearbooks in one week's time.
On the lighter side-the club had several parties and skates. As is the
:ustom each year, an outing in Pittsburgh will be enioyed by the members at the
end of the school term.

JUNIOR VARSITY FOOTBALL
Sept. 7 Ford City 0-Vandergrift 22
A big experienced "Lancer" eleven, as usual, beat us in
our opener. Bair's defensive play was tops but even that was
not enough. Maybe next year??
Sept. 'I4 Ford City 'I9-Evans City 0
Playing under lights for the first time in the history of the
school, we beat a tough Evans City team. Madzy, Stivason,
and Caruso scored touchdowns and Caruso split the upright
for the extra point.
Sept. 'I9 Ford City 0-Har Brock I2
Playing in a drizzle throughout the game, we suffered our
second setback of the campaign. Penetrating Har Brack's terri-
tory all evening, we were unable to push over a tally. Madzy's
flashy running and Kuvic's brilliant line play were the stand-
outs of the evening.
Sept. 26 Ford City 27-Swissvale 0
Spirited by the pile-driving of Larry Smith, we rolled to
victory over a big Swissvale team. Sacik, C. Gurski, Lloyd,
and Stivason scored touchdowns with Caruso adding the extra
points. This made us possible class "A" contenders.
Oct. 5 Ford City 9-Tarentum 0
Seconds before the intermission Caruso lifted a 25 yard
place kick through the uprights to give us a 3-0 lead at half-
time. The passing of Sacik and receiving of "Chet" Gurski not
only were the standouts of the game but also set the ball on
the 2 yard line from where Smith plunged it over.
Oct. 12 Ford City 'I4-Leechburg 7
Overconfident, we almost suffered our first defeat in class
"A", After Gurski scored on the fifth play of the game, we
were stopped cold by a determined Leechburg team. They
tied the game in the final period but Smith tallied to put us
ahead once more. Only time saved us as Leechburg was on
the 5 yard line at the whistle. Caruso added the extra points.
Oct. 'I9 Ford City 6--Springdale 19
We were eliminated from class "A" by a strong, fast
Springdale eleven. "Chet" Gurski scored our only touchdown
on a 20 yard pass. "Ninie" Zacour and Byron showed good
Oct. 24 Ford City 6-Amold 20
We played spiritless ball at Arnold after being eliminated
by Springdale. "Skip" Lloyd's passing gave us our only score
as he flipped one to Madzy in the end zone. Zacour again
showed great line play as he stopped the Arnold attack time
Nov. 1 Ford City 13-Punxsutawney 0
Finding ourselves again, we bounced back to win our fifth
game of the year. Madzy, running beautifully, scored both
touchdowns with Caruso adding the extra point, Scripps and
Holizna played superb ball.
Nov. 8 Ford City 19-Kittanning 0
We made it, the 8th straight victory over the "Kats." Byron
blocked 3 kicks to set up 2 of the touchdowns. Madzy carried
from the two, Smith galloped 30 yards, and Cippel raced 40
yards after stealing the ball. Beating our closest rival made
the season a success.

as the Forders battled for first place position in the
January 14 Mars 20-Ford City 62
was Hallas's night to shine as the Ford City reserves
most of the game to drub an overpowered Mars quin-
the largest score of the season, 62-20. Second honors
went to Leo Szymanski who had 11 points.
January 17 Freeport 13-Ford City 34
Ford City's tight defense proved too much for the Free-
port tive as they were downed by the Glassers by the score
of 34-13. With "Chet" Gurski hitting 12 points, the Forders
were never in any danger.
January 21 Sharon 42-Ford City 33
a last-quarter spurt the Sharon Tigers defeated the
hard-fighting Glassers by the score of 42-33. Without the aid
of "Chet" Gurski, who was ill, the Forders were overpowered
in the final stanza to take their third loss of the season.
January 24 leechburg 22-Ford City 41
Again the scrapping power of the Ford City five was out-
standing as they downed Leechburg on the latter's court by the
score of 41-22. Leo Szymanski with 16 points led the Hurri-
canes to the win which made a deadlock tie with Butler for
Section l champs.
January 31 Butler 19-Ford City 34
By making most of rebounds and playing heads-up ball,
the Ford City quintet downed the Butler squad to become Sec-
tion l leaders. "Chet" Gurski was the most consistent scorer
as he dropped in 17 points to lead the Glassers to a 34-19
decision over the maior contenders for Section l supremacy.
February 7 Vandergrift 22-Ford City 47
The Ford City quintet came one notch higher on the Sec-
tion ladder by downing the Vandergrift Blue Devils by the
score of 47-22. Scoring honors went to Bill Sacik as he paced
the Purple Hurricane with 13 points.
February 11 Kittanning 32-Ford City 35
A "hepped up" Wildcat squad gave the Section l leadezs
quite a scare till they were finally downed in the final stanza
by a desperate Ford City five. It was a below-par game whfch
the Glassers played but they could not be denied. John G.rski
led scoring with 12 points.
February 14 Mars 14-Ford City 73
What is believed to be the highest scholastic score in Alle-
gheny Valley was chalked up by Ford City as they downed a
below-class Mars squad. Again Hallas shone as he sank 18
points to take the evening's scoring honors.
Mr. Fred Ortman
February 18 Freeport 32-Ford City 55
The Ford City Purple Hurricane gave a demonstration of
why they are section leaders when they downed a game Free-
port five by the score of 55-32. John Gurski took scoring
honors with 14 points.
February 21 Leechburg 18-Ford City 18
Hallas with 17 points and Sacik and Brumbaugh with 11
each were the scoring threats of the thrashing that the Glassers
gave to the Leechburg quintet. Unable to penetrate the Ford-
ers defense, the down-river foes had to be content with the
few long shots they could take from the outer coast.
February 25 Butler 36-Ford City 31
An indilterent Ford City five, who already had the Section
clinched, were thrown for a loss by the Butlerites by the score
of 35-31. There was not much spirit or fight in the game but
it would have been nice to have a clean slate.
March 3 New Brighton 36-Ford City 61
The Ford City Glassers, Section I champs, hammered New
Brighton to defeat in the Quarter-Finals at Pitt Stadium by the

but that fatal shot shattered the hopes as the gun went off.
