Above are nicmbrers of the graduating class of 1909
Standing are Lloyd Bracken, XVilliam Campbell, and
Rose Huston Faulx. Seated is Nelle Moyer NVillits.
This was the first class to complete a four year course
in Ford City High School. lt was also the last class
to be graduated from the old school.
Through the Years-Fifty years have come-fifty
years have gone. Now, to commemorate the fact that
fifty classes have been graduated from Ford City High
School, we take pleasure in presenting the 1952 Tri-
reme, dedicated to the past and the future.
In our book, we have endeavored to combine the
old with the new-to suggest school as it might have
been fifty years ago and to portray the everyday
life in a modern school, to produce a mixture of happy
memories and hopes for the future. It is our fervent
hope that the 1952 Trireme will bring pleasure to both
old grads and new-through the years.

One year before the turn of the century, in
1889, Ford City was made an independent school
district, and a four-roomed building, constructed on
land donated by Captain John B. Ford on lower
Sixth Avenue, was built to house the first school
Children, Later enlarged to eight rooms, this build-
ing was the one in which members of the Class of
1902, the first class to be graduated from Ford City
High School, completed their schooling just fifty
years ago. At the time of their graduation, there
were approximately two hundred students making
up the entire school population of the Ford City
Public Schools, about thirty of these being high
school students. Under the direction of the princi-
pal, james J. Palmer, the six members of the class of
1902 completed a three year high school course, all
classes being taught by two teachers.
Classes were graduated from Ford City High
School in 1902, 1903, 1904. 1905, 1906, and 1907.
There was no graduating class in 1908, as, at that
time, a four year high school course was adopted by
the board of education and administration. During
the years of 1908 and 1909, because of the increased
enrollment in the school, all high school students
held their classes in an old store building on Third
Avenue, from where the class of 1909, the first to
complete a four year course, was graduated.
1t was during this period that those interested
in the educational future of Ford City's young peo-
ple began to see the inadequacy of the old eight-
roomed building on Sixth Avenue. ln October.
1908, the cornerstone was laid for the present school
building, located on Eleventh Street and Fourth
Avenue. Ready for occupancy in the year 1909,
this new building housed, in addition to classrooms.
a gymnasium, where Ford Cityis name as a town
of outstanding athletes had its start. Also the new
building contained an auditorium, the stage of
which has seen many interesting events-the grad-
uation of hundreds of young men and women, the
plays, concerts, and operettas that the talented stu-
dents have produced, and many community affairs.
As the school population grew, and as the
curriculum was enriched, the need for more room
was recognized, and the original building was ex-
tended to Fifth Avenue, the annex being completed
in 1922. At that time both the grades and the high
school were housed in the same building. but again
a growing school population caused the needr for
expansion of the school plant. In 1929, accordingly,
the present grade school building was completed.
Until the year 1934, both boys and girls held
their physical education classes in what is now
known as the girls, gym. ln 1934, the fine gymna-
sium on Fifth Avenue was constructed to house
the boys, physical education classes and to accomo-
date the scores of fans that witness the basketball
Ford City High School has been fortunate in
that its young people have been under the care of
farsighted board of education members and capable
administrators and faculty members. Those who
headed the school from 1902 to 1920, as supervising
principals, were Iames Palmer, Edward T.
Daugherty, C. M. McNaughton, and XV. YV. lrwin.
In 1920, Ray D. XVelch became supervising prin-
cipal, and when, in 1921, Ford City was made a
third class school district, Mr, YVelch became the
first superintendent of schools. Mr, VVelch left the
Ford City school system in 1928. Q. C. Vincent
was elected superintendent of schools in 1928 to
succeed Mr, YVelch and to serve in that capacity
until his retirement in 1950. At the time of Mr.
Vincentis retirement, Paul N. Marsh, principal of
the high school since 1927, became superintendent
of schools, and Raymond E. Miller, who had been a
teacher in the local schools since 1929, became high
Among former hoard members who served the
school and the community well were the late B. VV.
McCutcheon, the late John Shearer, the late Iohn
Sekinger, the late Ferdinand Reisgen, Dr. Albert
Bower, YV. T. Roberts, Byron Miller,VE. E. lXlorrison,
XV. Boggs, D. O. Crouch, the late Ceorge P, Lentz,
Calvin Miller, Dr. NV. A. Frederick, Iulius Steiner,
XValter Brookhouser, Earl Artman, YVilliam lVatson,
John Pella, Ralph Reisgcn, Otto Schecren, George
Brown, Henry llollev, Ioseph Frick, and Dr. Iames
Allison. The present board members are: Louis G.
Goldman, president, Floyd DeLong, vice-president,
John P. Badura, treasurer, Iohn Mclntosh, Dr. A. R.
Pechan, Dr. Paul Opalka, and Dr. Ted Rupert, Miss
Margaret Mongavin, secretary to the superintend-
ent, is also secretary of the hoard of education.
There have been teachers, too, whose long
years of service and contribution to education in
Ford City are worthy of mention. The late Olive
L. Hammond taught for forty-seven vears in the
Ford City schools. Mrs. Ella V. Kinley, now re-
tired, was a member of the faculty for thirty-two
years, Miss Edna Kerr, retired, for twenty-two
years, and Miss Estelle Butler, formerly the princi-
pal of the grade school and now retired, for twenty-
Graduates of Ford City High School have re-
ceived the benefit of fine scholastic training and
have done credit to the advantages they received
as they attended college or went into business, in-
dustry, or trade. ln 1929-30, a great educational
stride forward was made in the Ford City schools
when a junior high school, consisting of grades 7,
8, and 9, was created. At that time, classes in art,
activities, and guidance were introduced, while
woodworking, mechanical drawing, and homemak-
ing were made a permanent part of the curriculum.
ln 1950-51, a guidance department was reorganized
under the direction of Miss Evelyn Deen.
1t was in 1928 that Ford City received the dis-
tinction of being the only Armstrong County school
to have met the requirements necessary to he listed
as an accredited high school with the Middle
States and lXIaryland Association of Accredited
High Schools and Colleges. In 1950, after a pro-
gram of self-evaluation by the staff, the high school
was re-evaluated by a visiting connnittee and found
worthy to continue on this list of accredited schools.
Activities have played their part in the devel-
opment of Ford City students, 1n the years before
and during YVorld YVar 1, until the early twenties,
two literary societies flourished, the Athenian So-
ciety and the Sempiterna Society. The keen rivalry
between the two groups created much interest
both in the school and in the community, leading
to manv entertaining and lively debates.
Other organizations have come and gone, but
each has left its mark on the students and on the
school. ln May, 1927, the XVelhikhanna History
Club, under the direction of Mrs. Hammond, pub-
lished a valuable booklet, "Comnnmity Annalsn,
commemorating the fortieth anniversary of the
founding of Ford City. A chapter of the National
Honor Society was introduced in Ford City in 1927,
as was the National Athletic Society. In addition
to the honor societies. the Gregg Club, under Miss
In 1928, these students represented Ford City in an interscholastic contest held at the University of Pittsburgh, winning., tn.
scholarship cup. Alice Stiener made the highest all-around individual record in the contest, in which seventy high schools and 760 stu
dents participated., Standing are Bernard Apple, Edgar Burns, Franklin Core, James Vensel, Hubert Rupert, Edward Steiner. Stated
are Florence Crawford Miller, Alice Steiner, Rita lieftou Pincus, Laura Pignolet Ludxviek.
Shubert, and the Tri-Hi-Y, currently under Miss
Mitchell, are the oldest organizations in the school.
As its ancestor, the present Student Council,
formed in 1950 and now under Mr. Wallis direction,
had the Activities Council, which was formed in
1924 and existed until the early thirties. A school
newspaper, prepared by student editors and read
to the student body each Friday, existed before
1920. Later, a student editorial staff collected
school news which was published regularly in the
Daily Leader Times. In 1929, the ReHector was
published under Mr. Hutchisonis and Mr. Honse's
sponsorship, with Frank Brookhouser as editor. This
paper was succeeded by the Panorama, which was
published under Mrs. Hammondis direction, The
Glass-Ip, reorganized in 1950 under Miss Johnston,
was first published by students under Miss Fisher.
Before the advent of the Trireme in 1939, Ford City
seniors had published two annuals, the Oracle in
1912 advised by Professor Cook, and the Caldron in
1927, with Miss White as adviser. The Trireme has
been under the guidance of C. W. Black, G. A.
Barnett, Clara Sullivan, Mildred Stockdale, Eliza-
beth Weaver, and business advisers G. A. Barnett,
Clarence Marshall, T. P. Baughman, Margaret Shu-
bert, and Lina DeHout.
Music has always had many followers in the
Ford City schools, and there are a number of grad-
uates who are having successful music careers. In
the early days, a part time music teacher was always
a member of the faculty. Alumni well remember
the Boys, Quartette, members of which were Henry
Sellers, first tenor, George Duperrieux, second
tenor, Arda Bowser, bass, and August Shubert, sec-
ond bass. This quartette, organized in 1913, stayed
together even after the boys had Hnished high
Among the early surpervisors were Miss Fleck,
Miss Bailey, and Miss Mechling. Later, Miss Becker
organized the first band and introduced "On Ford
Cityv to the students. Music supervisors who have
succeeded them have been Miss Cathers, Miss Ball,
Miss Botdorf, Miss Gessler, Miss Thompson, and, at
the present time, Martin Thompson. The first
band director was Margaret Colonna Steinmetz, to
be followed by Alfred Zimmer, George Kyle, and
presently, Lola Bevington, as instrumental directors.
Alumni interested in music and speech also
recall with pleasure the Forensic League contests
during which Ford City students Won many honors.
They well remember the trips to the Clarion track
and music contests, especially the year, 1931, when
they brought back a cup which had been won by
Ford City for three years and was then to become
its permanent possession.
Today the idea of singing and playing together
has replaced the idea of contesting, and Ford City
musicians are represented in county, district, and
state orchestras, choruses, and bands. Ford City
has entertained county chorus several times, re-
cently with its own Iohn Raymond as guest con-
ductor. District chorus has also met in Ford City,
as has county band, and, in the spring of 1952,
Many fine athletes have been developed
through the sports program at Ford City High
School. Curiously enough, twenty-five or 'thirty
years ago, it was track, not basketball, that brought
Ford City its fame in the sports world. In 1925
and 1926, brilliant records were made by the track
teams, with Wendell Welch, an outstanding track
man, winning the state championship in 1925. Track
was discontinued as a varsity sport in the early
Although basketball was played in Ford City
before 1921, it was that year that marked a mile-
stone in Ford Cityis basketball history, for it was
then that Ford City made its first appearance in
W.P.I.A.L. competition, winning the secion. The
school has had sectional championships to its credit
then and in the following years-'24, '28, ,29, ,30,
,31, ,32, ,33, ,34, ,35, ,36, ,37, ,38, ,40, 341, '43, ,45, ,46,
,47, ,48, ,50, 751, and the present season, i52. In
addition, under Coach Campbell, the local teams, in
,37 and '38, were VV.P.I.A.L. champions. 1948,
under Coach Rupert, saw the local basketball team
as W.P.I.A.L. champions, P.I.A.A. western regional
champs, and P.I.A.A. state runner-ups.
Basketball coaches who have molded these fine
teams have been Roy McIntosh, A. Sheridin, C.
P, Campbell, James E. Davis, and Hubert Rupert.
Coaching junior varsity recently have been Fred
Ortman and Robert Black. Robert McCoy has
been junior high coach.
Traditionally, the annual football contest be-
tween Ford City and Kittanning, played on Armis-
tice Day, has been the highlight of the football
season. Ford City has been victorious in this an-
nual classic 16 times, with Kittanning winning 11 of
the games played, with one tied game. Ford City
has produced football greats, too, and has won
several county championships. In 1941, the foot-
ball team was undefeated and untied.
Football coaches at Ford City have been Roy
McIntosh, A. I. Sheridin. Iohn Honse, George Kase,
and Iames Davis, with Hubert Rupert and Robert
McCoy assisting. Recent junior varsity coaches
have been Fred Ortman, Robert Black, and Paul
Caruso. This year for the 1951 season, the games
were played on the new hilltop athletic field, which
eventually will be equipped, not only with a grid-
iron. but with facilities for night football games,
track, tennis, and baseball.
Minor sports include golf and baseball. Ford
City also has iunior varsity football, iunior varsity
basketball, and a iunior high basketball team,
initiated in 1951. Basketball is played intramurally
by many boys during the school year.
One cannot close the athletic history of Ford
City without mentioning the girls, basketball teams
which played interscholastically during the twen-
ties. Under their successive teachers, Miss Patrizio,
Miss Shumaker, and Miss Schoch, the girls have
enjoyed a variety of intramural sports, In the
spring of 1952, a Play Day was sponsored here un-
der Miss Schochis direction, in which schools in the
surrounding areas were invited to participate.
This then is Ford City High School through
the years. VV e have touched but lightly the crowd-
ed years that have passed since 1902, but we hope
that we have given a brief glimpse of our Alma
Mater--its growth, its people, and its accomplish-

The year 1952 is a year that will 'be stamped
in our minds and hearts forever. For it is our
graduation year! lt doesnit seem possible for
the years to have flown by so quickly.
Was it just four years ago that we were but
freshmen, thrilled by the fact that we were high
school students and inspired by the desire to be-
come seniors? VVe were delighted by the idea
of planning our schedules, and it made us feel
as if we truly were growing up. WVe,ll never
forget out Hrst formals, dress suits, and our
Freshman Prom. Our year was climaxed by our
junior high promotional exercises, when we re-
ceived a certificate that meant we had been pro-
moted from junior high school into senior high
The big thing in our sophomore year was
our trip to Kennywood-a whole day of roller
coasters, fun houses, hot dogs, pop, ice cream,
As juniors we shall put in our book of memo-
ries our junior play, "Ring around Elizabeth",
another trip to Kennywood, dances, the junior-
senior prom, and finally the school picnic at
Crooked Creek Dam. Remember how good we
felt when we took the seniors, place in the audi-

Seniors class officers pictured at left are Dolly Thomaswick
treasurer, Cassie Bower, vice-president, Elsie Vargo, secrc
tary, and John Englert, president.
As seniors we realized a position of impor-
tance. Our underclassman friends looked to us
with admiration and longed for the day when
they, too, would be seniors. Our play, "Mother
XVas a F reshmanv, was especially good. As the
days passed swiftly, we realized that our high
school days were ending and that we had made
them happy ones.

To commemorate the fact that the fiftieth
class was graduated from Ford City High School
this year, a Spring Festival was held on May first
in the high school gymnasium for the alumni,
parents, and friends of the school.
To open the program, Mary Kathryn Bower,
a member of the graduating class, was crowned
festival queen. Miss Bower, attended by Elsie
Vargo, as senior attendant, Joyce Luchesa and
Ann Novak, as junior attendants, Phyllis Liberto
and Betty Ann Volek, as sophomore attendants,
reigned over the proceedings of the evening.
Following the coronation various depart-
ments of the school entertained the queen and
her court. Music was provided by a chorus
of some one hundred thirty voices, the Ford City
High School Band, the Brass Ensemble, and the
Gridiron Four. Boys of the physical education
department exhibited drills in calisthentics,
tumbling, and marching, and a group of girls
presented a novel drill with jumping ropes. To
add color and gaity to the evening, a square
dance and several vividly-costumed folk dances
were performed, the latter being accompanied
by the singing of the Mixed Chorus.
After the program, the Student Council
sponsored a dance for the participants, alumni,
parents, and students.

ance of Joseph Carlsonis "Baths Goes Dramatic"
was enacted at the Commencement Exercises.

Miss Strittmatter, Mr. McCoy, Mr. Thompson,
and Mr. Muller, this year has been one of suc-

Instituted in Ford City High School in the
fall of 1950, the Student Council has become an
organization respected and admired by all stu-
dents. In fulfilling its purpose-to promote
better relationships among students and between
students and the faculty, and to encourage stu-
dent activities-it has performed a real and
recognized service among us.
The functions of the Council have been
many and Varied. Perhaps the most important
project has been the setting up of an Award Sys-
tem, wherein outstanding workers in all activities
will be recognized and rewarded. Other projects
have been the Christmas 6'Snow Ballf selling
buttons for the Kiwanis nKids, Dayf sponsoring
the noon time dances, and selling refreshments
at the football games. Members of the Ford
City body also attended the state convention held
in Kittanning in October, The election of coun-
cil officers stirs up much interest among the
students and provides all of us with some valu-
able knowledge as to election procedure. The
two years of hard work and cooperation bv our
representatives on Student Council have given
us a thriving, well-organized group of which we
eau well be proud.

many projects. The most outstanding project
for the year was the Christmas party for the
Orphans of the Willia1'd Home at Indiana. Other
events included a dance, a spring fashion show,

American Education Week. Club meetings
spoke at the bi-monthly meetings. A Christmas
party and a Sock Dance under the supervision of

The library with its attractive new furnish-
ings is probably the most frequented room in the
school. On its shelves may be found the latest
in current fiction in addition to its store of refer-
ence hooks and non-fiction Works. The many
students who enjoy lighter reading find pleasure
in its magazine rack, Where many periodicals are
to be found.
Students find that the Library Assistants,
trained by Miss Mitchell, are very helpful. This
group of girls perform many services as they
become acquainted with the "behind the scenes"
working of a library. As they assist students in
finding books, keep the card catalogue in good
order, help in checking out books, see that the
books are replaced on the shelves, the forty-eight
girls who are library assistants are really acting
as junior librarians, With their colorful bulletin
board displays, the girls keep interesting book
selections before our eyes. Under Miss Mitchell's
guidance, the girls are finding new vistas opening
to them in the world of books as they perform
their services to the rest of the student body.

All eager to produce an excellent book for an
anniversary edition, some thirty-eight members of
the yearbook staff banded together at the beginning
of the school year and began the difficult, yet satisfy-
ing, job of putting out the 1952 Trireme, 'ithe biggest
and bestest of ,em all." Enthusiastic thinkers began
to put ideas to work, artists displayed their talents, a
strong advertising team plastered the Walls of the
school with posters and filled the students, ears with
radio advertising-the mighty rush was on. Perhaps
the most fun of all was looking through the old pic-
tures of classes and events that had occurred uthrough
the years," interviewing alumni to give us a background
of Ford City High,s history, and collecting material
and ideas for our staff artists. Satisfying is the know-
ledge that a record number of Triremes has been sold
this year. Tell us, have you seen the 1952 TriremeP
Tom, Beverly, Janet, and Oreste are looking

As tbe curtain fell amid boisterous applause on uAIOtl1GI' ls a Freslnnanf, we
realized with great joy tbat our Senior play was a definite success. This comedy,
Written bv Raphael David Blau, centered about Abigail Abbott, who entered
College as freslrman wliile ber daughter Susan was a sophomore. Abigal bad
been improvident with ber busbandis insurance money and had no other means
of support. so took advantage of an unusual scholarship for anyone bearing the
name of Abigail Fortitude Abbott. Many amusing incidents arose as Dean Gill-
ingbam. Professor Nlieliaels. and tlie whole eampus became involved witlr Abi-
gail and ber plans to put Susan tbrougb college. The fact tbat niotber and dangli-
