As we left our Alma Mater, we carried with us our Trireme-A Treasure Chest of Memories. Through the years we can open our "Chest" and relive our school days. It is filled with memories, starting at the top with our biggest year of all-our Senior year. It is, therefore, that we present this our T953 Trireme, trusting that it will bring "memories of happiness" to everyone.

VM THE DXLETIO 64 'VAS-Q O lmrii 7 of N I Qdic ' We sincerely dedicate this edition ot the Trireme to the Mothers and Fathers ot the class of 1953. lt was our parents who first started us up the ladder ot school education. Now that we have reached the top, we begin to realize the grati- tude that is due to them. lt has been they who have had the most patience, understanding, love, and devotion, and who have always been more than willing to give us some ot their time or lend a helping hand. To those two people who have done the most to make our lives a success, we oFFer this "Treas- ure Chest ot Memories" as a small token ot love and thanks. 6 6yl"Q9?3,'.9fjQf K WV' pf?" fM?'fJjffwf'7ff fX55fffVf,Q,yfC7mjgfL A ,VP 'J as J 2, fy Wy KJ .

Let us review our high school days and remember some of the most important events. We shall always remember our Freshman Prom, the trip to Kennywood, our Sophomore year, the big Junior-Senior Prom, and "Blithe Spirit", our Junior Class Play. Then came our Senior year. At last we reached the goal we had been striv- ing toward these busy years. Our Senior Class Play "Family Circle", our Junior- Senior Prom, the banquet, Baccalaureate, and finally Commencement were all in- cluded, along with many other events in that busy year. When we received our diplomas we realized that this was not iust another sheet ot paper, we had worked hard for this and we deserved it. This opened new doors and we were proud. Yes, on looking back over our high school career we see an enioyable as well as a profitable one. It is with pride and some regret that we leave our Alma Mater, Ford City High School.

Besides the football games, the band also made many other public appearances-the Labor Day Parade, two benefit football games, pep rallies, the Halloween Parade, and the Ar- mistice Day Parade. After football season, the band prepared for its annual Spring Concert and the approach- ing band festivals.

These groups included the Varsity Mixed Chorus, the Boys' Chorus, the Girls' Chorus, and the Senior and Junior Ensembles. With all of these groups working separately and together, there was always "music in the air". In December, all voices were blended as once again the Christmas Story was related in song. Providing the background tor the Christ- mas program was a mural painted by the Art Club under the direction of Miss Portz. QQ The most active group in the vocal music department was the Varsity Mixed Chorus. All eighty-five members of this group worked to- ward the production of the operetta, "Fortune Teller". This depicted gypsy life in Livonia, a small European kingdom. In addition to this, the chorus sang in programs presented in other schools. Some of these were: Vandergritt, Kit- tanning, and Indiana.

Our Student Council received its charter in 1949-1950. Every year it has made great strides, although this year has been its best. Think ot all the Student Council accomplishments. It approved the constitution of our clubs, provided noon recreation dances in the girl's gym, sponsored movies in the auditorium for those who ate lunch in the school building. Student government was promoted through election of the Student Council otticiers, class officers, and homeroom chairmen. These people strive to plan projects to make our school year more enjoyable. This year the Student Council undertook the great task of selling re- freshments at the home football games. Through the co-operation of the students and the faculty this proved to be a success. Four delegates were also sent to the Student Council State Convention which was held at Forty-Fort. No one can for- get the third annual "Snow Ball." It was the highlight ot the season. We watched the progress of the Student Council from the day of its installation to the present date. As this year is brought to a close, all will agree it has been a suc- cessful one tor the Student Council-our own governing body. 'ia Front Row-E. Bryant, T. Zablocki, J. Kerr, J, Waugamari, E.

Changing from a mimeographed paper, the Glass-lp became a printed one pub- lished monthly. Subscription drives were held at the beginning of each semester to finance the cost of the editions. Added to the paper were pictures of teach- ers, students, and their activities, and current news and extra features. The staff, having been enlarged, was di- s vided into three main groups-editorial, busi- ness, and art staffs. The staffs met frequently to work out assignments and to prepare them for a monthly deadline. Certain members had spe- cific iobs while others helped in a variety of tasks, the editors supervising all work. Co-editors ..., .. Albert Callahan Cathryn Meinz Art editor ...,.,. ., , ,.

Anderson. foachea, A new addition to our athletic staff this year was Coach "Bill" Abraham. He took the brawn and the brain of eleven boys and molded a determined football team. The Glasser's record of three wins, one tie, five losses, and one forfeit showed the team's strong desire to win. Left to Right: Mr. Rupert, Mr. Caruso, Mr. Black, Mr. Simmons, and Mr. Abraham. K 82 FREEPORT C7-Oi Playing for the first time under their new coach, Mr. Abraham, the Glassers dropped the season's opener to a spirited Freeport eleven on the lat- ter's turf. Although our defensive unit was out- standing, the boys' unfamiliarity to their new offensive system withheld them from scoring. Aside from the Yellow Jackets second quarter score, the game was played on very even terms. L. Rybarik, J. Byron, and A. Lux. BUTLER C43-Oi Joe Cappazuti's Golden Tornadoes ripped and roared through the Ford City forward wall with ease as they chalked up a very decisive victory. The Double A squad's ground attack picked up an amazing 400 yards, while their defensive team had little trouble stopping the yet inexperi- enced Forder offense. Butler halfback, Roger Hathaway, contributed greatly to the Tornado victory. ' Uwwitq. j1wtl2n.lL A Q Front Row: D. Stivason, J. Littek, J. McCarthy, P. Busch, T. Bowser, C. Eck, F.

Paul Mr. Abraham Sandy Bryant Leechburg C19-'l3l Under the lights at the Hilltop Field for the first time, the determined Glassers initiated the home campaign by throwing a real scare into the Blue Devils from Leechburg. A crowd of more than 3000 spectators witnessed a 90 yard pass play from Quarterback Bozzo to lanky End Ray Miller. Sending the Glassers ahead of the undefeated Blue Devils for the first time in four years. Dick Hunter, Leechburg speedster, turned in his usual sensational game. Tarentum H2-20l Holding oFf until the second half, the Ford City aggregation came out in the third quarter to overcome a twelve point deficit and win their first victory of the season. Lorenzo Pendleton led the Zephyrs offense, while Don Scott and Bob Wingard played an exceptionally rough defen- sive game. Coach Abraham's emphatic half- time pep talk inspired our boys for that second- half spurt. Stanley Gowetski Ronald Klingensmith Raymond Miller West Deer K0-6l Ron Klingensmith intercepted a West Deer aerial on the Forder three yard line and raced the re- maining 97 markers for a touchdown, enabling Ford City to mark up its second successive vic- tory. Outstanding defensive line play by Jim Roberts and Leo Oresick also figured greatly in the victory., Swissvale C14-141 '. Although victory was near as Ford City was driving into Swissvale territory when the gun sounded, the Glassers remained undefeated for the third consecutive week, and they settled for a tie with a fast down river team from Swissvale. Kenny Bryant, Lorenzo Pendleton, and Ray Miller were outstanding as they matched wits with Swissvale's triple threat, Paul Krist. John Ollin- ger converted both Glasser extra points. A., .J ., John Myschisin James Roberts Donald Scott New Brighton C24-61 Suffering from their first attack of fumblitis, the Glassers were defeated at home by the defend- ing Class A champs from New Brighton. Kenny Bryant was the only bright spot for the Glassers as he averaged ll yards a try carrying the pig- skin. The powerful New Brighton's ground and aerial attack combined to penetrate the Forder defense and account for the victory. Arnold C14-331 Ford City played their best game of the season at Arnold as they topped the Tigers by a con- vincing 33-l4 score. Lorenzo Pendleton scored on the first play from scrimmage, and within a minute Leo Oresick had picked up an Arnold fumble and raced into pay dirt. From there it was the Glassers all the way as Ford City picked up 20 more points for good measure. Don Deaderick turned in a standout game as quar- terback for the Zephyrs. HF Vandergrift U9-71 Vandergrift's Blue Lancers invaded Ford City and bestowed upon the Glassers their fifth set- back of the year. There was no stopping the big powerful Double A outfit as they led all the way. In winning the Lancers injured "Tank" Boarts and Don Deaderick, thus handicapping the Glassers for the season's finale. Kittanning K2-Ol Forfeit game. Robert Stewart Robert Wingurd The 1952-53 basketball team will go down in Ford City history as one of the finest ever pro- duced. Although the team did not fare so well in their terrific December schedule, they later became renowned for their outstanding play. Lacking height and showing only one hold-over regular, along with three lettermen, the team featured teamwork with no outstanding scorer. After winning the Section I crown the Glassers upset three W.P.I.A.L. tournament entries, and were not eliminated until the W.P.l.A.L. final. Pictured at left: Mr. Black and Mr. Rupert The Rupertmen were appropriately termed the "Giant-Killers" and "Mighty Midgets" by district sportswriters. Upon returning home from Pittsburgh after being defeated by the powerful Sharon Tigers the Forders were greeted by the band and hun- dreds of ardent fans, a heartwarming display of appreciation that will long be remembered. When asked to comment, Coach Rupert complied by saying "This is the best little town in the state, and we have the best little team in the state!"

With exceptional shooting Pendleton, Salankiewicz, Rovnyak, and Sitch all hit the two figure scoring column. Ford City-55 Central Catholic-57 Although the Glassers overcame a 10 point deficit, the Central Catholic Vikings managed to score four points in the last 10 seconds of the game and cop the victory. Lorenzo Pendleton came through with 11 points besides playing on outstanding floor game. Ford City-39 Sharon-52 At the third consecutive road game, there was no stopping an Atterholt-McHugh combination that clicked for 30 Sharon markers. Sitch and Salankiewicz were high men for the Zephyrs. Ford City-58 Westinghouse-49 At home for the first time, the Glassers gave the fans a real treat as they whipped a tough Westinghouse aggregation. Sitch. Miller, and Salankiewicz were the main threats to the Pittsburgh champs. Ford City-44 Johnstown-55 The undefeated Johnstown Troians came to town and put on a magnificent shooting display as they hit for 552 of their shots. The District Six team averaged 6'2" in height along with being fast and aggressive. Lorenzo Pendleton chalked up 15 points for the Glassers. Ford City-49 Arnold-52 Traveling to Arnold our boys grabbed an 11 point lead in the first quarter but when the final gun had sounded Arnold had won by a three point margin. Pendleton was leading scorer for the Glassers, Kenny Bryant was our top rebounder. Moses and Tom Saska tallied 18 and 17 points respectively for the Lions. Ford City-46 Duquesne-32 Returning home Ford City got back on the winning trail as they defeated the "Little Dukes". The Dukes were unim- pressive in their sixth outing, thus Sitch and Salankiewicz by scoring and Miller and Bryant by controlling the backboards, took advantage of them. Ford City-54 Aliquippa-56 ln a game almost identical to the Ford City-Aliquippa game of a year ago, the Glassers once again overcame a 10 point disadvantage only to find themselves behind when the final gun sounded. Ford City-25 Monessen-26 ln the final exhibition game before section play began, Monessen's Greyhounds came here to face the Glassers in a battle of defenses. Both teams were off on their field goal and free throw attempts, thus the scoring was limited. Five foot seven Rich Rovnyak did the impossible by being top re- bound man for the night. Ford City-46 Har-Brack-43 Ford City had a shaky start in Section l as they edged Har-Brack Tigers on our home court. Har-Brack's outside shooting was sensational, but it was oFfset by excessive foul- ing. Ford City-58 Butler-50 The Glassers took a big step toward the Section l Flag as they defeated Butler in the Tornado crackerbox. Trailing into the final period, the Forders depended on some timely and accurate outside shooting from Rovnyak and Salankiewicz, Ford City-67 Kittanning-39 The Rupertmen made it three in a row as they knocked off the Kittanning Wildcats on our home court. Miller, Sitch, Bryant, Salankiewicz, and Pendleton, all hit the two figure column for the Glassers. "Grampa" Adams was high for the Wildcats. Ford City--69 Vandergrift-45 The Forders had no trouble defeating the Section ll leaders in an exhibition tussle on our hardwood. Salankiewicz, Pen- dleton, and Miller had remarkable shooting percentages, while "Potshot" also controlled the boards. Ford City-36 Rankin-27 The Glassers staged a second-half comeback to defeat Rankin in another exhibition fray. The relatively low score was due to poor shooting from the field. Ford City-45 New Kensington-41 The Forders successfully completed the first-half of league play by downing New Kensington on the latter's fioor. Sitch and Salankiewicz led the scoring parade, while Bryant con- tributed a fine fioor game. Ford City-73 Har-Brack-51 Traveling to Har-Brack, the Glassers really caught fire and made a fine start in the Section l second-half race. Although the Tigers again were deadly from the outside, Ford City's teamwork dominated the game. Ford City-65 Vandergrift-52 Although Vandergrift shot 56? in the first-half and led the Glassers by 15 points at halftime, the Forders rallied to outscore the rangy Lancer Quint. A second-half all-court press by Ford City proved disastrous to the Section ll champs. Ford City-61 Butler-38 The high-riding Glassers continued their league sweep bv trouncing the second place Butler Golden Tornadoes. A full house of 1,600 ardent Ford City fans watched Bryant, Salankiewicz, and Pendleton, lead the Forders scoring and Ray Miller control the boards. Ford City-72 Kittanning-47 Ford City annexed its twenty-fourth Sectional Champion- ship by whipping Kittanning Wildcats in a foul shooting ex- hibition. Ray Miller, who hit eight for eight free throws, led the Glassers as they connected for 36 out of 51 charity tosses. Ford City-62 New Kensington-26 Only as a matter of formality, the Glassers downed New Kensington and thus posted Ford City's thirtieth consecutive league win. Senior, Bob Stewart, ioined the two figure club as he dropped in ten points. ON TO THE FIELD HOUSE! 'Ford City-73 German Township-35 Underdogs, the Glassers baffled the experts as they wal- loped a towering German Township five. Outstanding was Ford'City's 432 shooting percentage, Kenny Bryant's defen- sive work on 6'9" Ed Frimmel, and the over-all teamplay of the Forders. 'Ford City-61 Charleroi--56 Heavier underdogs than before the Glassers became known as "Giant-killers" when they won a W.P.l.A.L. quarter-final decision over the highly touted Charleroi Cougers. Rich Rovn- yak iced the game in the late minutes by sinking nine out of ten free throws. 'Ford City-58 Greensburg-49 Ford City valiantly fought its way into the W.P.l.A.L. finals as they defeated Kalbfus, Cavanaugh and company. Sport- ing an incomparable shooting average of 45'7s, the Rupert "midgets" gained the admiration of all Western Pennsylvania basketball fans. 'Ford City-41 Sharon-49 Battling for the W.P.l.A.L. Crown, Ford City was out- classed but not outfought by a sensational Sharon five. The Glasser fourteen game win streak was halted by Sharon's impregnable 2-3 zone. Because of a definite height advantage, Sharon controlled our boards, thus setting up the speedy Tiger fast break. HATS OFF TO FORD CITY FOR A TERRIFIC SEASON, "W.P.l.A.L.
