This year another Senior Class was graduated from Ford City
High School. 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.

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.

The time has come for the class of "'l953" to leave Ford City High. This year
ended the most enioyable one of our high school careers. 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

Another successful year of vocal music by
the various groups under the able direction of
Mr. Thompson was enioyed by everyone. 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.
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.

The Glass-lp, while retaining its old name,
took on a new appearance and many stat? mem-
bers this year. 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-
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.

We never knew how much work and effort
was necessary to produce a successful year-
book. From the time we selected our theme
we were busy checking appointments, taking
pictures, cropping, pasting, and meeting
and not meeting deadlines. Filling your
treasure chest full of the memories that you
will treasure was not an easy task. While
this has been a responsible iob it has been a
most interesting experience. We hope you
will enioy our eFForts.

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.
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.
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

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
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-

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
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.

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.
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.
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.

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.

The Rupertmen were appropriately termed the
"Giant-Killers" and "Mighty Midgets" by district
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!"

RAYMOND MILLER CHARLES SITCH
Ford City--75 Tarentum-37
The 1952-1953 hardwood campaign officially began for
Ford City as the Glassers started on the right foot and de-
feated a rangy Redcat team at Tarentum. 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
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
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-
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
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
'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
'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,
