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. fp.

The next fall saw them entering the new building on Fourth Avenue. j0lf'6! ,SZAOOK ' - ,7Alf'0lfl, A lfAQ 806145 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 games. 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 school principal. 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- five years. 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. 9 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 school. 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, district band. 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 thirties. 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- ments. ri N ' x fl. -5 I 'Q wx .-w ' 4 415 2 4 o' 'vi 3743 1 ' Q . 1 x, x .Q , ,Q Ei- :Q ,Fda ' ,. 2- 90" K.

Marsh Superintendent of Schools Mr. Paul N, Marsh, superintendent of Ford City Public Schools, has been at work in Ford City schools since the year 1920. He has been employed in many different capacities, including those of a teacher, principal, and superintendeut. For seven years, Mr. Marsh was a science teacher here, before his election in 1928 to the principalship. At that position he served the school for years before his ascension to the office of superintendent. Mr. Marsh was graduated in 1916 from Pennsylvania State College, where he later did grad- uate Work. He received, in 1936, his degree of Master in Education from the University of Pitts- burgh. As Superintendent of Ford City Public Schools, Mr. Marsh carries out the policies adopted by the board of education. Among his many duties are the certification of teachers, the offering of re- quired subjects in curriculum, and checking enumeration and enrollment of children of school age, as set forth by the Department of Public Instruction. It has been largely through the work of Mr. Marsh that our school is an institution of which the community can Well be proud. Mr. M-lrsh shows senior class president, john Euglert, and Tom Jansen the many trophies won by Ford City students through the years. 13 vw rinccyoa an l4fLiIfLiZ5If8lf':5 '61, !9l"0gl"6LlWL l"d l'VLOI"8 lfAdl'Z fde lflmee X Q Mr. Raymond E.

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 school. - 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, fun! 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- toriuml ZKULIS5 of 7952 99aft QVAFWQGHCQ Z fy MM Jafar 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. of fda Cyfcmd of 7902, j ...L- Above are the senior home room chairmen: Ed H0- baugh, Tom Jansen, Oreste F alsetti, jim Allison, Ianice Rupert, Dorothy Bowser, Garnet Pore. -69 f ll 1' 'VP J 'I , :TQ-gb 1wxs:,--'-im., Rgvq Josephine Andrews "Ion Celia Anthony '4Cil,' Has a lovely soprano voice . . . am- bition: to become a Wave or NVac , . . took commercial course . . . her hobby is driving her grandfatlieris Cadillac while she isnit sleeping or eating . . . president of Tri-Ili-Y . , . parliamentarian of Gregg Club . . . a member of the yearbook staff.

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. eniom Af ima gui. mme-an C1lIlL4 HCI 18 Lrmxn4c1 P10111 PIIHLLSS 1111114 lum the priucv, and Dick E 111 Studi-nt Coux1ui1 o11igers uri- I'1'2lC1f' for u niuctiug. 121 Tom and Cussiv urn- enjoying t11v 111111 ' ' 1 1331 Sai 111 ' ' ' ' " ' ' ' H , 100 mm 11 1 ' ' ' U k 011.

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.

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.

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 through the old F. C. H.
