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 School. 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 school activities. BEVERLY HOY HELEN FOLCIK Secretary Treasurer 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 over.

Standing: William Turicik, Vice-president, Beatrice Valek, Treasurer 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 Tish. 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. 32 Back Row-William Jansen, Valentine Woyton, Leo Placha, Walter Kissick, Gerard Slagle, Domenic Cesare Third Row-James Thomaswick, Dean Doverspike, Richard Passmore, Robert Helm, Earl Cooper Second Row-Anabel McJunkin, Eileen Beck, William Lucian, Eugene Revay, Edward Germy, Donald Roberts, Miss Bottlander Front Row-Marilyn Duff, Jean Protz, Joanne Kane, Martha Greene, Doris Hindes, Elma Klingensmith, Vera Carney, June Tolliver 33 Back Row-Frank Gariglio, George Todoroff, James Liptow, John Skukalek, Franklin King Third Row-Stanley Wilson, Charles Hutchison, Bud Byron, Ben Cook, Marilyn Yingst, Joan Carberry Second Row-Charles Milligan, William Retzger, Richard Hand, Joan Jageman, Joan Gowetski, Frankie Jean Hepler, Lois ,lane Malc, Miss Beamon Front Row-Clara Klingensmith, Gladys Sipe, Donetta Barbour, Lorraine Thiry, Patricia Fester, Doris Priester, Delores Czapcr Back Row--Angelo Scopel, Robert Maus, Kenneth Lettrich, George Fitzgerald, John Stroud Third Row--Helen Coleman, Charlaine Schwab, Verle Coleman, Henry Dietz, Joseph Bureau, Anthony Remis Second Row-Joseph Hagofsky, James Waugaman, Lila Lhote, Betty Lou Tongue, Rose Marie Baculik, Joseph Kiiowski, Frank Hribik, Miss Roessing Front Row--Lois Jackson, Gloria Capizzi, Eloise Wiser, Rose Morvik, Agnes Harriger, Louise Good, Elizabeth Kiiowski Back Row-Francis Churchill, James Hohl, Grant Daugherty, John Varholla, William Stover, Joe Krukar Third Row-Lee Ray Green, Richard Karabin, James Bowser, John Falsetti, John Rudosky, Kenneth Reitler Second Row-Beverly Miller, Lillian Kral, Hope Arnold, Bernice Campbell, Virginia Walker, Robert Ortmann, Paul Malagari, Miss Steiner Front Row-Rita Rupert, Joan Gross, Elizabeth Cippel, Helen Szalankiewicz, Elizabeth Kendra, Nancy Gold- man, Jean Holizna, Peggy Edwards Back Row-William Roberls, Karl Sfollenwerlc, Roberi Hileman, Howard Zerick, Vicior Arco Third Row-Walter Cryfzer, William T Ilk Ed d L Ed J h J k R l ur'c' , war unz, son 0 nsion, ac eit er Second Row-Georgia Cassel, Paul Klacka, James Novak, Richard Duff, Leona Kama, Beairice Valek, Margie D S unmire, Mr. owers f J X, , , W ff ff J f QT J J 1 127: if 5.1222 ii gf 57" fvig-f' 'li-ll-.ln ,MZ27 ff" '::::-rea , ff ii f 1 .

The band has gone to every football game this season, not only to perform, but also to cheer for the team. The band has also gladly taken part in community functions. With thirty-five players, six smart maiorettes and four color guards, the band presents a colorful spectacle when it is on parade. The band also has a reserve of eight iunior maiorettes.

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.

Mrs. Goodhart 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. 57 Tri eme Bottom Row: Anita Matinez, Literary Chairman, Stella Kiiowski, Chief Secretary and Accountant, Patricia Ryan, Art Chairman, Ray Marshall, Advertising Chairman Top Row-Nicholas Balazik Cel, Lois Mae Beck Cal, Nelson Bish Cal, Dorothy Brisky Cbl, Julia Bryant Cal, Dara Lee Chestnut Cbl, Jackie Darrall Cbl Third Row-Charles Doverspike Cel, Helen Folcik Cbl, Mary Fraed Cal, Kathleen Frisina Cbl, Donald Haney Cel, Stanley Gladysiewslci Cel, Evelyn Heilman Cal Second Row-Sally Heilman Cel, Tom Houseman Cel, Beverly Hoy Cbl, Bill Kovacik Cel, Rose Kovalovsky Cel, Dolores Krings Cel, Bob Lungrik Cel Ca, artg ad, advertising, b, businessg e, editoriall Miss Smart Dorothy Ann Reisgen Michael Martinez Miss Weaver Art Advisor Editor Ass't Editor Editorial Advisor 58 fwfr Bottom Row-James Stivason, Sports Chairmanp Willanna Millen, Club Chairman: Lila Wills, Music Chair- man, Mary Wyant, Finance Chairman Top Row-Lola Mansfield Cbl, Donald McCarthy Cel, Lois Meek Cel, Patricia Nelson Cadl, Dorothy Olsheski Cbl, Dolores Parisi Chl, John Portasik Cel Third Row-Jean Ray Chl, Maureen Rogan Cel, Irene Sereda Cbl, Rose Shevchuk Chl, Bernice Smathers Chl, Phyllis Spang Cadl, Margaret Stanko Cel Second Row-Robert Stepp Cel, Charlotte Stotler Cal, Walter Tihanovich Cel, Esther Valek Cal, Gladys Veres Cbl, Elizabeth Wielohob Cal, Teresa Zboran Chl Ca, arty ad, advertisingp h, businessp e, editoriall Miss Shubert Betty Heilman Jerry Jean Nameche Miss Aurand Business Advisor Business Manager Ass't Business Manager Advertising Advisor 59 Standing-Dara Lee Chestnut, Irene Sereda, Stella Kiiowski, Bernice Smathers, Kathleen Frisina, Teresa Zboran, Gladys Veres, Dorothy Olsheski, Rose Shevchuk, Dolores Parisi, Lola Mansfield, Jean Ray.

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 34. SEPTEMBER 25 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 wasn't able to take advantage of the breaks they had in the game. OCTOBER 18 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. OCTOBER 24 Ford City-0 Arnold-25 Playing at home once again, the Forders lost their eighth game.

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 Jerry Slagle. 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. 65 Section Une Champ Back Row-Mr. Rupert, Gerard Slagle, William Jansen, Francis Churchill, Howard Zeriek, John Skukalek, Clyde Yates, Mgr Front Row-Joe Krukar, William Englert, John Gurski, Edward Halas, Jim Brumbaugh, John Portusik, Valentine Woyton Senior ettermen JAMES BRUMBAUGH A Archie A , guard . 2 letters good one hand shot specialist ., handles the ball well JOHN PORTASIK ., Porky , guard long shot specialist fouls are his meat EDWARD HALAS , J Hula . .

EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTOR FOR CRAFTCO COVERS - SCREEN CREDITS - There are many people behind the scenes in the production of a yearbook. Included in this group are Mr. Vincent and Mr. Marsh, who have given us their full cooperation, Mr. Traut and Mr. Wyant from the engravers and printers, who have given us helpful advice, Mr. Leister, our photographer, who answered our every call, all persons who aided in the production of the Variety Show and other money-making enterprises, the individuals and firms who contributed to the support of the yearbook through advertising, and lastly the faculty members and the student body, without whose genuine cooperation it would have been impossible to present the 1948 Trireme. All these and many more have aided in the production of this yearbook, and the staff hopes that the recognition given here will in some measure express its appreciation.
