I., . , I V Dedication C E, the senior class, think it only fitting and proper to dedicate our 1954 FORT to the two people who have been most instrumental inits production---Miss Kathleen Stack and Mr. Gomer Williams. They gave unselfishly of their time and efforts to the creation of this annual, without their patience and industry, it probably would never have become a reality. MISS KATHLEEN STACK NLY now, as we look back over all they've done, do we realize how indispensable they were. Working side by side, we came to think of them not only as teachers and advisers, but good friends as well. Rolling up their sleeves with us, they pitched in willinglyg our objectives became theirs, too. To them, with all our respect, affection, and thanks, do we dedicate this Yearbook. MR. GOMER WILLIAMS N that same school year 1951 - 1952, the Class of 1954 traveled diagonally fas the crow fliesj from Room 15 to the Home "Ee" Room to pick up the other adviser, diminutive Miss Jeanne Stapleton. She, too, through three years of calm and storm, has encouraged and directed us to satisfying experiences in class activities. This other half of the page, we dedi- cate to her as a symbol of our high esteem of her friendship, service, and patience. MISS JEANNE STAPLETON Advisers N the process of organization during the school year 1951 - 1952, our class caught Mr. Ralph Gramley, between issues of the Red and White, off guard and initiated him as one of our advisers. Through three years of storm and calm, he has counselled us wisely and guided us successfully. This half page, we dedicate to him as a token of our sincere appreciation of his patience, service, and friendship. MR. RALPH GRAMLEY In Memoriam C 1 JAMES HANNIGAN N these words of tribute the Class of 1954 honors the memory of Mr. James Hanni- gan, who died on February 9, 1954, at his home, 6 Englewood Terrace, Forty Fort, after several months of illness.

He successfully smoothed over the rough spots in our class meetings and was ever willing to lend a helping hand. Because of his natural ability as an artist, Jerry contributed much to the success of the Junior Prom decorations and the Christmas decorations inhis home- rooms. He may have been the shortest team member, but his springy leaps on the basketball court added many extra points and thrills. A talent of Jerry's that remained latent until his junior year expressed itself as "Father" in the junior play. The blustering "O'Hara" in the senior play gave him another opportunity to show his dramatic ability. He proved his versatility by capably serving as Busi- ness Manager on the RED AND WHITE this year. His friendliness and easygoing manner will gain him many friends . FRANK RICHARD KREN President of the Student Council With his pleasing personality and great popularity, Frank Kren has won many laurels. His classmates honored him with the position of class vice president in tenth grade. By popular acclaim he was named "Mr Touchdown" at the annual dance in his senior year. several other positions in the well experienced to be presi- year he was recording secre- was vice president.

P X 1 'gli-1 ' SQ-.xx , V Q 'K ka x JN September l95l,Station FORT-TV, Channel 54, was christened by Producers Jeanne Stapleton and Ralph Gramley. Leslie Philla- baum was chosen program director and had on his staff--FrankKren, assistant director, Marilyn Carl, script girlg and Gloria Andress, fi- nancial agent. Because it was fall Channel 54's headliner was "Sports Scenes," a show featuring the Flyers' weekly football game. Halfback Frank Kren and Center Joe Ackourey were often in focus on those nights. On February 1, Station FORT-TV introduced "Theater Play- house." As their first presentation the 54 Players--Phil Battenberg, Virginia Downey, Hilda Green, Marian Laines, Joe Ackourey, Tim Common, Tom Heath, Mike Hinebaugh, Ronnie Olshefski, and Tom Re gan--gave Command Performance. Marilyn Zabusky was associate director of this drama which kept the audience in suspense for a half hour. In the winter, "Sports Scenes" brought on camera Roy Rosenbaum, John Newcomb, Frank Kren, and John O'Connell on the basketball court and Roland Pearson, Harry Lamoreaux, and Bill Corcoran on the wrestling mat. After following Don Hosey, Joe Ackourey, Roy R0- senbaum, Frank Kren, and Bill Corcoranwith the camera's eye around the track, Channel 54 left the air for the summer. In September 1952, the cameras moved to Set Z. Program Direc- tor John Newcomb--with his assistant. Marilyn Carl, script girl, Jane Somervilleg and financial agent, Bill Corcoran, gatheredaround him--was setting the stage for the coming year's programs. The roving cameras again followed the Friday night footballgames where Joe Ackourey, Bill Corcoran, Frank Kren, Charles Abenmoha, Don Wilkinson, Don Hosey, and Tom Regan were often pinpointed by the lens. The Mr. Touchdown Dance, sponsored by Channel 54 on Novem- ber 15, received full coverage. As the season changed, "Sports Scenes' picked up basketball games with Carl Conway, Tom Heath, John New- comb, Jerry Olexa, Les Phillabaum, and Roy Rosenbaum, and wres- tling meets with Joe Ackourey, Bill Corcoran, Dale DeRonde, Frank Kren, Harry Lamoreaux, Roland Pearson, and Tom Regan participat- ing. Qgs -wg, , ""wli.41 N Ps.. vssih The staff decided to continue "Theater Playhouse," and on Janu- ary 30, 1953, presented a one-act comedy, Ever thin Nice. Jane Somerville and Hilda Green, the mischievous aug ters of Virginia Brehm, upset the otherwise calm household of their aunt and uncle, Marian Laines and John O'Connell. Margaret Richards and Frank Kren had the romantic roles in the production, and Phil Battenberg was associate director. LIE Little -lkg Laughed, with Marian Laines and Margaret Richards as associate directors, was in the spotlight on March 20. Phil Battenberg, the budding psychology student, and John Newcomb, her gangling teen-aged brother, had as parents Ali- son Rubury and Jerome Olexa. On the night of May 2.3, the scene cut to gay Paris. There the staffs and associates of Channels 53 and 54 joined in dancing around a miniature Eiffel Tower. Next in the sport line-up were trackmen Joe Ackourey, Bill Cor- coran, Frank Kren, and Don Hosey. Channel 54's concluding produc- tion for the season was the state track meet at Penn State. The cam- eramen got a close-up of Roy Rosenbaum receiving a trophy for fifth place in the pole vault. As the cameras rolled September 1953 on Set 3, Script Girl Gloria Andress sat with pencil poised, Financial Agent John Newcomb poured over his accounts, Assistant Director, Marilyn Carl helped in any way she could, and Director Jerome Olexa yelled, "Rol1 'em!" With those words Channel 54 started on its most successful year. The same pro- ducers, Miss Jeanne Stapleton and Mr. Ralph Gramley, backed it as they had when it was televising with only 51 kilocycles. The station continued to present the football game of the week, featuring the same bill as the previous year, with the addition of John O'Connell and Darius Thomas. Program highlights that fall were the naming of Co-captains Frank Kren and Bill Corcoran and Center Joe Ackourey to the West Side Conference All-Star Team and the election of Frank as Mr. Touchdown of Channel 54. On October 17, FORT-TV sponsored a square dance which was well-received by the people affiliated with the station and their friends. For their dramatic productions of the season, "Theater Playhouse" presented a fast moving mystery-comedy in three acts, Home Sweet Homicide, and a powerful one-act drama, The Storm. In Home Sweet Homicide the fun-loving children--Hilda Green, Phil Battenberg, and Joe Shedlarski fan import from another station,--not only helped to solve a murder, but also succeeded in making wedding bells ring for their widowed mother, Virginia Brehm, and Roy Rosenbaum, a police lieutenant. Other roles were capably taken by Jerry Olexa, Marian Laines, Ronnie Olshefski, Marilyn Zabusky, and Les Phillabaum. ls, .fl 454' 5 5 s fi c M ' is . 5.3 t 'Q ,,Q.,g,ti . s ' . 1 W Q . ,sf I .2 3- .ff t M M :yi fl Ig wk?- ' f.-1.4. ,.,. 4 a K N 'N , D 1 kr L ii' L , , x Q t Ronnie Olshefski was associate director of The Storm. The cast of this drama consisted of Virginia Downey, Madeleine Fishof, Jane Somerville, Roy Rosenbaum, and Les Phillabaum. Channel 54 was pleased to receive the TV Award for the outstanding play and to have one of its associates, Les Phillabaum, receive honors for his vivid characterization of "The Hunter." This year "Sport Scenes" picked up John Newcomb, J'erryOlexa, Les Phillabaum, Roy Rosenbaum, Carl Conway, and Tom Heath on the basketballcourt, and Charles Abenmoha, Joe Ackourey, Bill Cor- coran, Dale DeRonde, Harry Lamoreaux, and Roland Pearson on the wrestling mat. During the rest periods the cameras switched to the cheerleaders--Jackie Wolfe, captain, Gloria Andress, and Alison Ru- bury--who were busy working up enthusiasm among the spectators. The favorite music program of Channel 54, the Band Concert, was given on May 7 and featured Phil Battenberg, Marilyn Carl, Jane Som- erville, Carl Conway, Tom Heath, and Al Schrader. The cameramen made sure that they got shots of Virginia Downey, captain of the ma- jorettes, and color guards Margaret Richards, Virginia Brehm, Mar- ian Laines, and Irma Lloyd as they participated in the concert. The FORT-TV GUIDE had a successful year under the editorship of Jane' Somerville and Jackie Wolfe. The station's almanac, THE FORT, was capably published by Marilyn Carl and Ann Marie Proleika. All legal decisions of the channel were taken to a council, which was headed by Frank Kren and included Margaret Richards and Bill Cor- coran. Off-screen activities were arranged by the Y-Teens and Hi-Y Clubs under the leadership of Gloria Andress and .Toe Ackourey. On May 15 the members of Channel 54 were honored at a dinner- dance given by Channel 55--the group scheduled to fill the empty spot on the screen when Channel 54 left the air. Among its last screencoverages were the Baccalaureate Sermon on June 6and Class Day on June 9. With the Commencement address by the Honorable Orlo M. Brees on June 11, Channel 54 signed off sta- tion FORT-TV and prepared to launchvaried programs in several sec tions of the country.

With a record of seven wins, two losses, and one tie, our powerful team under the leadership of Co-cap- tains Kren and Corcoran had a great deal of spirit and determination. Joe Ackourey, Frank Kren, Bill Corcoran, John O'Connell, Tom Regan, Charles Abenmoha, Tom Heath, Darius Thomas, Donald Hosey, Don Wilkinson--the seniors on this peppy football team--will never forget their successful years as members of the squad. How can the team ever forget the inch deep dust at Westmoreland or the blizzard during the West Pittston game?

Although the thought was that we didn't have a winning team, the grapplers proved otherwise by coming through with 6 wins and only one loss in the conference league. Our senior wrestlers-Harry Lamoreaux, Dale De- Ronde, Bill Corcoran, Charles Aben- moha, Tim Common, Carl Lingertot, and Don Wilkinson-have done their best to make the 1954 seasona success. Backed by the strength of the underclass matmen and the competent leadership of coaches fMr. Steltzer and Mr. Earll, the Flyers were worthy of the support given by the student body. SCORES F.

Sfudem' Council NDER the leadership of President Frank Kren, the Student Council experienced a successful year. His report of his trip to the National Convention at Portland, Oregon, was one of the year's high- lights for the student body. The magazine project, after a slow start and a lagging campaign, ended in a blaze of glory, just short of last year's total. The profit made possible contributions to the yearbook and whirlpool-bath funds. Mary Lou Newcomb and Bob Mack, with Miss Stack, attended the State Con- vention at Pittsburgh. The lunch room was well managed by Student Council members, with the new plan of daily written reports proving very satisfactory. Another innovation was the suggestion box into the Council and the School. The All-School Play Production, which were dropped ideas for the good of F. Kren, M. Richards, M. L. Newcomb, R. Rundle, W. Corcoran OFFICERS President ....... '. . Frank Kren Vice President Ma ry Louise Newc omb C orresponding Sec reta ry Margaret Richards Rec ording Sec reta ry Ruth Ann Rundle Treasurer ..... William Corcoran sponsored by the Council, proved enjoyable and fi- nancially profitable. An outstanding accomplish- ment was the staging in the auditorium of a regu- lar Council meeting for the benefit of the whole student body. The use of committees in study- ing and solving prob- lems worked very well. The Student Council's record for 1953-54 is one of which the officers and representatives, as well as the student body, can be proud. This year- book, the Council's big project of the year, through its theme "Te1e- vision" is a "screen" version of the combined efforts of THE FORT Staff, Student Council officers and representa- tives from the Class of 1954, and faculty advis- ers of the Class and Council. 52 President Kren taking the Stu- dent body on his trip across the Frank surveying the Bad Land of South Dakota from a high point.

When featured in the band concert, they twirled with lights on their ba- tons while everything else was in darkness and the band furnished the music--a delightful spectacle. Leading the band down the field at every marching performance was the color guard--setting the pace for the rest of the band. It was especially important dur- ing the playing of the Star Spangled Banner, for it was they who carried the colors. 60 Irma Lloyd, Margaret Richards, Marian Laines, Virginia Brehm Captain--Jaclde Wolfe ' Alison Rubmy Gloria Andreas First Row: Ruth Amold, Carol Berretta, Judy Gommer.

This required hours hard practice in which we worked together nd laughed together. In our junior year we started to think about a theme for our prom. Our thoughts took form in "An Evening in Paris." Once more we were joined in a spirit of co-operation as we spent hours de- signing and building. We recorded these events in words and pictures within one cov- er-our yearbook.

Off to art class. 77 Secretaries Miss Melba Thomas MiSS Ida Mewinger CYHE School District of Forty Fort Boroughis efficientlyand faithfully served by its two sec- retaries, Miss Messinger and Miss Thomas. We pay tribute to Miss Messinger, who has arduously earned the strategic position of mastery of all records, so essential to the smooth run- ning of a public school system, including budget, bids, supplies, pay roll, and personnel informa- tion. In the midst of a busy daily schedule, she is ever willing to answer a question or to do a favor. Miss Thomas, likewise, is daily confronted with many phone calls, absent and tardy slips, bulletin announcements, reminders to teachers, sorting of the mail, state attendance registers, and school correspondence. She, too, is never too busy to respond graciously to any request. For her pleasant, unruffled personality we express deep appreciation. The members of the Clas of 1954 thank Miss Messinger and Miss Thomas for their many acts of kind service. C usfodians Mr. William Beach, Mr. Edmund Kent Mr. Miles Lamoreaux CHE term "custodians" adequately describes the above well- known trio, for never did three men take greater care of a public trust than "Bill," "Doc," and "Mi1es." The building exte- rior and interior, reflects in its cleanliness, comfort, and cheer the daily care bestowed upon it by these faithful employees of the Forty Fort School District. Frequent are the occasions on which visitors from far and near express sincere compliments on the attractive appearance of our school plant. Teachers and pupils, alike, testify to the ever-ready, willing cooperation of their three custodians. For the many acts of helpfulness during their six years in the high school building the Class of 1954 says a heart- felt "thank-you." 78 S INDIVIDUALLY AND COLLECTIVELY THE CLASS OF I954 ACKNOWLEDGES WITH SINCERE GRATITUDE THE ENCOUR- AGEMENT OF PATRONS WHO HELPED TO MAKE POSSIBLE THIS "TELEVISION" EDITION OF THE YEARBOOK.
