MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL
This year the seniors of Ford City High School
proudly present the Trireme as our mirror-a reflec-
tion of our 'high school days. It is our hope that you
who look into our mirror will recapture, along with us,
memories of your own school days, days that were
filled with happiness, sorrow, anxiety, and anticipa-
We are proudof our school and all who have
made it what it is-our principal and superintendent,
our teachers, our many different organizations-band,
orchestra, choruses, our clubs, our football and basket-
ball teams, and each individual boy and girl.
Each page, each picture means something to us.
The mirror reflects our chorus and we can hear the
blending voices and "Silent Night"-our Christmas
program. Turn a page--our basketball team. Once
again we are in the crowded gym. Only a few min-
utes to play, the score tie and we hold our breaths as
a Ford City player shoots for the basket and makes it.
We can hear the uproarious cheer of the fans and in
that moment we are very proud of our Alma Mater.
It is, therefore, our pleasure to place before you
the T,rireme of 'l95G and trust that it will, in worcls
taken from our school song, "reflections of Ford City

A MESSAGE FROM OUR
SUPEBINTENDENT OF SCI-IOGLS .
To the Class of 1950:
I am very glad to avail myself of this oppor-
tunity to convey my greetings and best wishes
to the class of 1950. I have watched classes
graduate from the Ford City High School since
1929, when fifty pupils were graduated, until
the class of 1950 with its one hundred thirty-
seven members. '
In looking into the mirror. of the past, with
particular attention being given to the last two
decades, I find we have had all the elements that
go to make a good school system-a splendid
student body, a well-trained and sympathetic
faculty, secretaries, engineers, and custodians
that were faithful and efficient, and a school
board that is and has been anxious to provide
the best educational opportunities possible for
the young men and women of this community.
Through the mist of the years certain events
are still discernible. I see the organization of
the Jr.-Sr. High School in 1929 with its shops, its
home economics department, its guidance and
its full time librarian . . . the presentation of the
trophy case by the class of 1930, on January 2,
1930 . . . the dedication of the new gymnasium
on December 14, 1934 . . . the two hundred tons
of scrap iron gathered by the students and piled
on the school lawn during the fall of 1942 as
their contribution to winning the war . . . the
dedication of the memorial plaque on which is
inscribed the names of twenty-seven of our
graduates who made the supreme sacrifice that
truth and right might prevail.
All these things I see reflected in the mirror
of the past! What of the future? Ford City High
School will continue to serve the youth of the
future iust as she has served the youth of the
past. Pupils will continue to be graduated, of
whom we shall be proud. No doubt there will
be consolidation with certain of our neighboring
school districts which will be mutually advan-
Members of the Class of 1950, I congratulate
you and wish you success.
Q. G. VINCENT
Superintendent of Schools
Mr. Q. G. Vincent, after forty-four years of association with the
public schools of Pennsylvania as teacher and administrator, twenty-
two ot which have been spent as our superintendent of schools, is
retiring. In recognition of his years of service to our school and our
community, we, the members of the senior class, dedicate the 1950
Trireme to Mr. Vincent. May this volume of "Retiections" thus in-
scribed express to Mr. Vincent the heartfelt gratitude and good wishes
of all the young people who have been graduated from Ford City
High School during his tenure of office.

HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL
MR. P. N. MARSH
The administration of our school consists of
three branches-namely, the board of education,
the superintendent of schools, and the high school
The school board plays an important part
in influencing the type of education we receive.
These men are always looking ahead and trying
to better our alma mater. Through suggestions
received from Mr. Vincent and Mr. Marsh, they
formulate the policies that govern our school.
Mr. Q. G. Vincent, superintendent of Ford
City Public Schools, handles quite eFFiciently his
responsibilities as administrator of the aFFairs of
the Ford City Schools. He is the executive oFficer
whose duty it is to see that the policies of the
board are carried out. The superintendent of
schools, while he is elected by the local school
board, is commissioned for a term of four years
by the Superintendent of Public Instruction. As-
sisting the school board in selecting new faculty
members is one of his many and perhaps most
important duties. He attends to the ordering of
new text books and other materials necessary to
the teachers' and students' daily work. Mr. Vin-
cent is ably assisted by his secretary, Miss Mar-
Mr. P. N. Marsh, our principal, is well-
known by all the students as he directs the affairs
of our high school. Among his many duties, Mr.
Marsh plans the master schedule and each stu-
dent's schedule for the year. His voice is heard
regularly over the P. A. system as he makes the
daily announcements. He handles all the finan-
cial matters of the various clubs and organiza-
tions of the school. In Mr. Marsh's oftice are
kept each student's record, and much of our
principal's time is spent in relaying copies of the
student's record to prospective employers or to
colleges. Assisting Mr. Marsh is his efficient sec-
retary, Miss Mildred Heigley.
To our board of education, to Mr. Vincent,
and to Mr. Marsh, the members of the class of
T950 wish to express their gratitude for the guid-
ance and help they have received during their
years in Ford City High School.

BEFLECTIONS OF THE VVORK WE
ln our classrooms you will find the doctors, workingmen, engineers, lawyers,
stenographers, and the farmers of tomorrow. By providing such varied curricula
as the scientific, commercial, general, and academic, our school attempts to pre-
pare us for our futures. The scientific course stresses mathematics, chemistry,
physics, biology, and general science. From the commercial course emerge stu-
dents skilled in typing, shorthand, bookkeeping, and the operation of office
machines. Our future college students interested in areas other than the sciences
find in the academic course the necessary fundamentals for their additional
schooling. For those who do not care to specialize in any of the above, the
general course offers a liberal amount of knowledge in many fields.

T950 . . . The year of graduation . . . For us
Seniors this is the biggest moment in the first half
of this century. But let us stop for a moment to
look into our magic mirror to see those reflections
of our high school days. Do you see us as we
were on our first day in Ford City High School?
How exciting that day was! The year flew by
and soon it was time for our freshman prom.
Then camethe big event of the year-our Junior
High Commencement. Do you see us when, at
the beginning of the next term, we moved into
the Senior High? Remember the wonderful time
everyone had at Kennywood? Gazeonce more
into that mirror. Do you see how many more
activities in which we gradually participated?
That spring we had two big events. We gave
our junior class play-The Hangman's Noose.
Our iunior-senior prom was also a gala event of
the spring. Now, can you see our images as
seniors becoming clear? In December we had
our senior class play-A Date With Judy. Soon
we were being called into the auditorium to dis-

We Juniors have had a very active and suc-
cessful year. First of all we sponsored the an-

season. Then, when basketball season started, we
took over the selling of refreshments at games.
Among other things, we sponsored a bake sale
and a skate, and produced the annual Junior
Play. We topped our activities for the year
with the Junior-Senior Prom. Now as we com-
plete another year, we are looking forward to
the time when we will be the Seniors of Ford
City High School.

The Ford City High School Band, under the
leadership of Miss Lola Bevington, is a rapidly
growing organization. The band, its personnel
consisting of forty-nine instruments-seventeen
maiorettes, two mascots, and four color guards,
makes a snappy appearance as the members
parade in their uniforms of purple and gold.
Drama and color is added to the football
games as the band presents its music and gay
maneuvers at the openings and at the intermis-
sions. Marching in most parades, the band is
also an asset to the community. Besides learning
their three ,"R's", band members also learn their
three "T's"-time, tone, and tonguing. During
football season, band rehearsals are held every
evening after school. The rest of the year the
band practices two nights a week in preparation
forthe annual spring concert.
Band members representing Ford City at
the District Band Festival at Punxsutawney were
Mary Ann Kunst, Beverly Cochran, Clair Culp,
Pat Binder, Dolores Zimmerman, James Shiring,

Sixty-tive voices blend together, and the result is the music of our mixed
chorus. Under the direction of Mr. Martin E. Thompson, the chorus presented
the inspiring Christmas Program, which is held annually. Instead of an operetta,
this year the chorus entertained with a concert in the spring, at which delightful
songs of many varieties were sung. Sixteen members represented our school at
the Armstrong County Chorus Festival, which was held at Apollo.

AND LIBRARY ASSISTANTS
The library is the store room of a vast amount of knowledge. This room is
continually being used by students and teachers. In addition to its fiction and
non-fiction books, the latest magazines, and the daily newspapers, the library
contains all sorts of reference material. Because of a shortage of space, it is
also necessary to use this as a study room at different times.
Besides the librarian, Miss Mitchell, there is a group of girls known as the
library assistants who help keep the library in order. Under the direction of
Miss Mitchell, these girls have learned to do various tasks connected with the
operation of a library. One of the first duties of a library assistant is to learn
to check out books. lt is also necessary for her to know exactly how to file and
to keep the card catalogue in order. Besides meeting these fundamental re-
quirements ofa librarian, the girls are often found helping prepare the attractive
bulletin board displays and helping students find the particular book they want.
You will also find these girls helpful in suggesting interesting books with which
they are acquainted. ln addition to being helpful to the library, the girls them-
selves benefit by the knowledge of library procedure they acquire and by becom-
ing acquainted with so many books. On the whole, the library and its sta'Ff are
a great asset to the school and to the whole community.

When, at some time in the future, we recall
our days in high school, one of our first thoughts
will be of our Tri-Hi-Y and of its influence upon
all of us. We shall certainly remember the con-
ducting of devotionals over the intercommuni-
cating system in cooperation with the Hi-Y, and
the selling of refreshments at the home football
games. Its members will also always carry the
remembrance of the meetings, especially those
at which our local ministers made their interest-
ing talks to the girls and those at which faculty
members gave the instructive "Teen-Talks".

Judy by Aleen Leslie. This three-act comedy,
adapted from a radio program of the same
name, concerns the life of a typical teen-age girl,
Judy Foster, played by Barbara Wilsoncrott, and
her humorous escapades in trying to raise money
to become Queen of the Charity Ball. The play
was a huge success through the cooperation of

GUR CHRISTMAS PROGRAM
SILENT NIGHT . . . HOLY NIGHT . . .
The darkened auditorium was slowly filling
with myriad lighted tapers as the girls' chorus
filed onto the stage. After the last strains of the
familiar hymn had died away, Mr. Thompson
stepped before the footlights to begin the annual
Christmas program. In addition to the choral
numbers, appropriate orchestral numbers were
presented, the trumpet quintet contributed sev-
eral chorals, and from a distance the Brass Choir
played Christmas carols that added to the listen-
ing pleasure of all. The instrumental numbers
were all under the direction of Miss Lola Beving-

OUR STAFF AND ITS WORK
The staff of the 1950 Trireme has known a
busy year. First of all, it was necessary for us to
select the theme of the book, and after much de-
liberation "Reflections" was selected. Then we
prepared the tentative layouts and made the
arrangements for students and organizations
to have, their pictures takes. Our student pho-
tographers also busied themselves taking snaps
to be used in our book. Then we started work-
ing on the immense job of doing individual sen-
ior histories. Pictures were identified and made
ready for the engravers, art work was completed,
copy was written-there was always some staff

to only three defeats. Undefeated in sectional
playing, they represented Section One as far as
the semi-finals of the W. P. I. A. L. play-oFfs

As the staff of the 1950 Trireme looks
into the mirror, we see the images of the
many people who have contributed to the
success of this annual. During the year
Mr. Marsh, our principal, and Mr. Vincent,
our superintendent, assisted the staff in in-
numerable ways. Miss Weaver and Miss
Shubert, under whose capable leadership
the book was edited and sold respectively,
are reflected in our golden mirror. We see
also Mrs. Haggerty, to whom we wish to ex-
press our thanks for the suggestions and
advice she gave us. Reflected also in our
mirror are the men of the faculty-Mr. Rup-
ert, Mr. Shakley, Mr. Thompson, Mr. Baum,
Mr. Gregory, Mr. Davis, Mr. Ortman, and
Mr. Heidenreich, the members of the bas-
ketball team, the cheerleaders, the major-
ettes, the band, Miss Shumaker, Miss Bev-
ington, and all the others who assisted in
the benefit basketball game for the Trireme.
We are grateful to those outside of school
who have aided us in making this publica-
tion a success-Mr. Traut from the engrav-
ers, Mr. Wyant from the printers, and Mr.
Leister, our photographer. Of course, we
shall not forget the faculty and student
body, whose cooperation made possible the
publication of this book.
The staff is also grateful to the indi-
viduals and the firms who helped us by
taking advertising space in our book or
who made cash donations to us. In the fol-
lowing pages will be found the advertising
section of our book. Those who assisted us
by donations were McCarty's, Kilgore's
Beauty Shop, Julius Steiner, Rearick's Store,
Patchin's Store, Chief-of-Police Nelson, and
the Ford City Hardware. These good friends
of Ford City High School, our advertisers
and patrons, will be remembered by the
staff and the student body.
To the many people whose faces will
always be reflected in our mirror we, the
1950 Trireme staff, wish to express our sin-
cere appreciation and thanks for the help
they have given us in the publication of our

Since, we have reached our highest step,
And we are seniors now,
Our class lacks neither vim nor pep,
But soon yve'll'take our bow.
As we go bustling to and fro '
With never a moment to stop
We're making plans so we can go
To our last high school hop. '
Our time has come, the end is near,
We sit upon the stage,
We're happy, yet we shed a tear
As we turn a memory page.
We say good-bye to all the fun
We had while we were here,
But our reflections in the mirror,
Still show a lot of cheer.
For our purple tinted mirror,
Bound by the frame of gold, 1
Reflezts the memories and cheer,
Of dear old Purple and Gold. lg'
