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- tion. 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 bring."

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- tageous. Members of the Class of 1950, I congratulate you and wish you success. Q. G. VINCENT Superintendent of Schools i. , Q, .-DEDICATION 1--+ 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. 7 2 zu--. - Via, V134 ", 5' . -L-my f 4 Y in..

MARSH TI-IE ADMINISTRATION The administration of our school consists of three branches-namely, the board of education, the superintendent of schools, and the high school principal. 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- garet Mongavin. 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. ,.

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.

E i 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- cuss problems pertaining to our graduation. To- ward spring we were caught in a whirlpool of activity. There were the junior-senior prom, Bac- calaureate services, class-night, and finally graduation, when one hundred thirty-seven sen- iors assembled in the auditorium to receive their diplomas. Senior class sponsors and homeroom chairmen are pictured at the right. Stand- ing are Marvin Russell, Frank Kreutzer, and Mr. Sowers. Seated are Phyllis Seli- ers, Pat Kiene, Mary Ann Olinger, Mrs. Baker, Miss Shubert, Miss Ward, Mrs. Adams.

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, and Beverly Walker. Beverly Cochran, who plays the alto clarinet, was a delegate to State Band. HIGH SCHOOL BAND Back Row-H. Schrecengost, M. Miller, M. Pytel, E. Karl, H. King. Fourth Row--P. Binder, J. Shiring, N.

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.

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 the rest of the cast: Wib Euchler as Randolph, Judy's kid-brother, Jim Karl and Isabelle Krukar Randolph meets Susie Bosom pals disagree Eloise elocutes! os Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Foster, Paul Shumaker as Oogie, Judy's boyfriend, and Bernadine Tirpak and Frances Remis as Barbara and Mitzi, her friends.
