RAY MARSHALL CHARLES DOVERSPIKE
As freshmen on the first rung on the ladder
to graduation, we were somewhat awed by the
ease and assurance with which the upperclass-
men went through the school routine. Would we
ever be able to walk along the third fioor hall
without feeling self-conscious? A tea dance at
Christmas, a skate, and several other dances en-
abled us to become better acquainted with fellow
freshmen and to put off the feeling of uneasiness.
We were important in our own right at the
freshmen prom for which Tony Krozly's orchestra
was engaged and of course we were the center
of attention that memorable night in May when
we received the certificates which entitled us to
call ourselves members of Ford City Senior High
As we reached the second step to our ulti-
mate goal, we headed our class with the follow-
ing capable officers: President, Stanley Glady-
siewski, Vice-president, Robert Stepp, Secretary,
Jackie Darrall, and Treasurer, Charles Stroud.
Under their leadership, we sponsored several
dances, but of course the big event was the
Sophomore Prom, at which we entertained the
Juniors and Seniors. As we grew older, we
became better prepared to take our place in
BEVERLY HOY HELEN FOLCIK
This was perhaps the most successful year
in our school history. Through the efforts of our
officers-President, Ray Marshall, Vice-President,
Pat Ryan, Secretary, Beverly Hoy, and Treasurer,
Charles Stroud, and our class chairmen, we
made this a big year financially. Our Junior
Play, "A Credit to the Family," made a hit with
all our friends. As a fitting end for such a year,
one spring night the new gym was transformed
into a South Sea island paradise as we enter-
tained the Seniors at the Junior-Senior Prom.
At last we reached the top-seniors! How
important we felt as we went about the tasks
associated with sponsoring dances and putting
on our play, "The Whole Town's Talking." As a
climax to our social season we ioined with the
juniors in sponsoring a combined Junior-Senior
Prom. With Ray Marshall, Charles Doverspike,
Helen Folcik, and Beverly Hoy as our officers, we
made our last year a happy one. As the end
approached, we were caught in a whirl which in-
cluded our prom, our banquet, baccalaureate
and, of course, the big night when we received
our diplomas. It was with a feeling of sadness
that we realized that our high school days were

Entering the basement floor as green freshmen, we were readily welcomed
and swept up in the activities of the year. Our initial year was climaxed by
our first prom and the Promotional Exercises, after which we left our title as
"greenies" to the incoming group.
Having been promoted to the second floor, we spent a peaceful year under
the watchful eye of the office. A well-attended prom marked our progression up
the next step of the ladder.
We passed into our Junior year, well-prepared, except in financial matters.
We soon rallied, however, through dances, skates, and our own Junior Play,
II ' Il
By popular vote it was decided to combine the Junior and Senior Proms
and have one big dance for both the Juniors and Seniors.
Thus we pass the third rung of the ladder, looking forward to the top.

The Vocal Department of the high school, under the direction of Miss Marian
Thompson, presented three outstanding programs during 1947-1948. The first
choral activity was the sponsoring of county chorus, November fifteenth and six-
teenth in Ford City. One hundred and thirty students from neighboring schools
in Armstrong County combined with twenty Ford City students to present a con-
cert under the direction of Mr. Duft, choral conductor of New Castle High School.
On December 18, 1947, the annual Christmas Concert was presented.
"Christmas in Song and Story" made up the first part of the concert, a carol sing
ending with a snow scene concluded the program.
On March 19 the operetta "Once in a Blue Moon" was presented. Students
having roles in the operetta were Mary Elizabeth Fraed, Beverly Hoy, Lois Jane
Malc, Dorothy Ann Reisgen, Marjorie Dunmire, Carrie Johnston, Willanna Millen,
John Portasik, Bill Kovacik, Val Schmaus, Dick Duff, Lloyd Mansfield, Charles
Doverspike, and Ray Marshall. Well-trained choral groups, interesting dance
routines, and colorful sets also helped make the operetta a huge success.
Providing music for the baccalaureate and commencement exercises con-
cluded the activities ot the department.

Tri-Hi-Y Purpose: To create, maintain, and extend throughout the school
and the community high standards of Christian character.
The members ofthe Tri-Hi-Y strive in all their activities to carry out the pur-
pose ofthe organization.
During I947-48 speakers were engaged for almost every meeting, and one
meeting of each month was devoted to a talk by one of the local ministers.
Each Friday the girls conducted the devotional exercises for the entire school over
the intercommunicating system.
During the year several civic proiects were undertaken by the girls. They
canvassed the town for the infantile Paralysis drive and collected clothing which
was sent to a needy family in the South.
"Teen Topics Il," a course in personal development set up by the national
Y. M. C. A. organization, was presented to the girls, as was a course in etiquette
and personal grooming.
Under the leadership of the sponsor, Mrs. Goodhart, and its officers, the
organization has contributed much to its members and to the school.

holding the Vans for the first four downs, the
Glassers were no match for them.

Playing their first class "A" game, the Glass-
ers tried valiantly but just couldn't get started

Ford City-7 Har Brac 34
Playing at home for the third straight week,
the team was completely outclassed by the Tig-
ers. Ford City's only score came as Jim Stiva-
son streaked 97 yards for a touchdown on the
kickoff. The blocking on this run was excellent
as Stroud threw the key lock and not one player
laid a hand on Stivason. Al Cippel split the up-
rights and the score was Ford City 7-Har Brac
Ford City-0 Swissvale-25
Traveling to Swissvale for their first away
game, the Glassers went down to their fourth
straight defeat and second in class "A."
Ford City-6 Tarentum-26
Playing at Tarentum, Ford City scored once
again. Portasik went off tackle and cut back for
a 45 yard sprint and a touchdown. Al Cippel
tried for the extra point but it was no good.
Ford City-0 Leechburg-'I9
After holding Leechburg to a 6-0 lead at
half time, the Glassers let them score 13 more
in the last half. Ford City wasn't able to take
advantage of the breaks they had in the game.
Ford City-0 Springdale-34
Ford City traveled to Springdale and was
blitzed by a one man scoring act. Left halfback
Alex Kozma scored 32 of Springdale's 34 points.
The team lust couldn't stop him.
Ford City-0 Arnold-25
Playing at home once again, the Forders lost
their eighth game. The team improved some-
what, but not enough.
Ford City-0 Punxsutawney-41
The Woodchucks handed Ford City their
worst licking in nine games. lt was also the
Glasser's ninth straight loss.
Ford City-7 Kittanning-0
Coach Davis' protegee's finally won a game.
The field was a sea of mud. Portasik cracked off
tackle and cut back for a 38 yard iaunt and the
game's only touchdown. Al Cippel booted the
slippery pigskin through the uprights to make
the score Ford City 7-Kittanning 0. The Wild-
cats never made a serious scoring threat.

The stupendous Glassers' basketball team under the tutelage of Coach
Rupert has traveled farther on the path of fame and glory than any other team
in the annals of the school. Emerging victorious through a tough sectional battle
and trampling their opponents in the Western Regional rounds, the Glassers
earned the trip to Philadelphia for a chance at the state championship. Despite
its defeat by Norristown in the state finals, the team has established a record
for fine playing and good sportsmanship.
In the tournament games the fans who followed the team so faithfully were
well rewarded. They saw big Ed Halas, a dangerous man under the basket,
drop them in against the best defenses, they saw the miraculous shooting of
John Portasik from the outer court, they saw John Gurski, the best defensive
player this side of the Rockies, keep the scoring of the opponents down, aided
by Bill Englert, who always came through in a tight spot, they saw Bud Zerick,
a boy who opened the fans' eyes with his brand of playing. The Glassers had
powerful subs in Junior Woyton, Joe Krukar, and Bob Stivason and a helpful
second team in John Skukalek, Richard Asay, Bill Jansen, Donald Wolfe, and
To these boys, to Mr. Rupert, coach, Mr. Ortman and Mr. Zilla, his assistants,
Mr. James Davis, intramural coach, and to Mr. Harold Sowers, faculty manager
of athletics, the Trireme extends its congratulations.

and the student body, without whose genuine cooperation it would have been
impossible to present the 1948 Trireme.
