lt has been stated by high-ranking government

American youth by furnishing suitable housing

ADMIN! T BA Tl 01V
Dr, H, C, Tilley, born in Franlclin Borough, attended
the Conemaugh Township and East Conemaugh Schools.
He graduated from Shippensburg Normal and received
his Bachelor's, Master's and Doctor's degrees from the
University ot Pittsburgh. In I928 he became supervising
principal of our schoolsg but iust prior to that he
completed two years legal training. Dr, Tilley's constant
work and untiring effort is of great value to the high
scholastic program and the business administration of
Mr. D. G. Seese became our first high school principal
in l93O. He received his Bachelor's degree from Juniata
College and his Master's degree trom the University ot
Pittsburgh. He has since completed study toward his
Doctor's degree. He is eligible tor a superinte-ndent's
commission and holds a diploma from the International

The public school has been established tor the
education of the American youth. Many and varied
are the demands imposed upon it as it faces the
problem of preparing curricula which will prepare
the student for the held ot his choice.
The Academic course may really be labeled as
college preparatory work. The pupil has the
opportunity to study tour years ot English,
mathematics, science, social studies, and foreign
language, in addition to art, shop, home economics,
music, and health. lt the individual's schedule
permits, typing may be added.
The Commercial course prepares students that
they may immediately take positions as secretaries
or stenographers. lt is centered principally around
typing, shorthand, bookkeeping and office practice,
although the education ot the student in English
and social studies is not neglected. Practical
experience is gained as aides in the ottice and as
secretaries to teachers,
The General course is provided for students
who do not wish to enroll in the strictly academic
or commercial subjects. Extensive work may be
taken in music, shop, home economics, or art. ln
the shop, boys have an opportunity to work with
their hands, and often discover some type of work
tor which they are especially fitted. ln home
economics the girls are taught every tundamental
of good housekeeping,

"The Voice of Democracy."

Our stay in school has been only a small part
of our lives, but a happy part. One realizes this
only when he reminisces and pictures the highlights
of those years.
As freshmen we were truly "greenies", but
improved rapidly under the sponsorship of Mr.
Sileck. lt seemed strange that we were divided
into several homerooms, but we found unity as we
elected officers. Even though we were not superior
salesmen, we helped the yearbook staff by selling
Christmas cards and candy, A skating party was
held in order to start a class treasury. Everyone
present reported having had an enjoyable evening.
Spring came, and the few asked to the Prom were
the envy of the maiority, however nearly all were
seen at Idlewild Park participating in the many
ln the fall of 1953, many of our members
joined the football squad, the band, the majorettes,
or the cheerleaders. Thanks to Miss Cromer tMrs.
Failsi and Mr, Sileck for helping us to arrange the
Sample Fair, which netted our treasury additional
Summer rapidly passed by, and upon our return
to school we were ioined by many new students
from East Taylor township. lt was an interesting
year for all of us. The time had come for the
selection of class rings,-ours, for a day. "lt's a
Date", the class play, was soon followed by the
Junior-Senior prom. The gym was beautifully
decorated, the girls wore beautiful gowns, and we
felt we had been perfect hosts. The school picnic
climaxed the years' program.
September i955, and we were Seniors, We
elected class officers and selected as our motto-
"Let us be seen by our deeds". We chose the
American Beauty rose to blend with our colors,
pink and white. "Line of Scrimmage", our class
play, provided an opportunity for many to show
their ability as actors and actresses. Additional
funds were needed for our Senior Banquet at
Wissinger's Inn, and these were secured by spon-
soring Doc Williams and his Border Riders, As
guests of the iuniors, we had a wonderful time at
0 Myrna searches the files for the history of
Among seniors who gained notable achievements
were Stephen Hamel, who made the highest score
in a test given by Juniata College, Barbara Drye,
who won county honors in the "l Speak for
Democracy" contest, Dixie Lee Secrest and Nancy
Goughnour whose essays merited first and second
places in the American Legion contest, and Delores
Kokler, who successfully defeated all contestants
to become "Miss Disc Jockey of l956" at radio
For the second time in a five year period, all
honors in the Johnstown V. F. W. Ladies Auxiliary
essay contest were captured by local students.
Frances Strippy, Mary Kindja, and Stephen Hamel
finished in the order named.
Marian College received second place county
honors in the essay contest sponsored by the
Cambria County Legion Auxiliary Council.
Finally the night of our graduation had arrived,
May 22, and in the audience we could see the
smiling faces of our parents, relatives, and friends.
Many of our group plan to enter college in the
fall, and Uncle Sam will claim some in the armed
forces. Others will seek work, while a few of the
girls plan to be married.
Truly we can say-our years in school were
happy ones and we are proud of Franklin-East

Among those whom we wish to recognize are

interest in our efforts, that all our undertakings

We have come to realize what blessings we
have had and we feel that a mere "thank you" is
not enough to express our gratitude. In words, a
"thank you" will have to do, but in our hearts
lies the appreciation that cannot be put into words.
A MESSAGE TO UNDERCLASSMEN
We, the class of l956, wish to express our
gratitude and appreciation to those underclassmen
who, through their unselfish efforts and cooperation,
made this edition of the Jayonian possible. Someday
you in turn will be seniors, and you will find that
the publication of this book will be a fruitless task
unless you enlist the aid of the underclassmen.
Continue the good work, help the seniors of each
year, or how can you expect cooperation when
you become seniors?
Our main campaign is the sale of Christmas
cards and candy, and records show better than
any amount of words that the support of the
underclasses is not only desirable, but necessary.
This year they were responsible for seventy percent
of the total sales. The same is true of preceding
years. ls this not sufficient proof?
Remember your turn as Seniors is coming, and
in closing l can only hope that you will receive
the some cooperation, the same eager response
as we have received, and that you will find in
this book the satisfaction of being proud that you
helped make it possible,
The staff of the i956 Jayonian wishes to extend
its congratulations to the staff of 1955 for the
splendid yearbook which they produced and the
honors which they brought to our school by being
awarded "medalist honors" in the national yearbook
rating contest sponsored by Columbia University.
They failed to achieve a perfect score only by the
lack of two identifications-the snap shots and the
Schools throughout the nation enter their books
in competition at Columbia University and we feel
very proud that the highest honors should be
bestowed upon our Jayonian. l wish to congratu-
late the sponsors, Mr. Hite and Mr, Salem, and
can only hope that this book and future editions
may bring further honors to our school.
"LET US BE SEEN BY OUR DEEDS"
We, the class of 1956, selected the above
motto, for we felt it best represented the pattern
by which we must fashion our lives in order to
attain our ideals and goals in life. Be it ever
before us as we take our places in the world,
' Linda admires her watch, the reward for
her efforts in selling magazines.
As lawyers, doctors, businessmen, housewives
or husbands, we shall all be recognized by our
deeds. Good deeds will bring to us the friendship
and understanding of our fellow-citizens, while
harmful deeds will bring upon us the scorn and
contempt of society. Unknown men are being
constantly recognized and are advancing to new
heights, while men who have already achieved
fame are rising to even higher goals through their
We are the generation which will lead the
world through the hardships and perils of the
future. Much depends upon us, our wisdom, our
attitude, and our ability to lead. Reaching for
across the distant horizon, we and our deeds shall
be the inspiration of an age which will go far in
determining the future peace of the world.
God grant that future generations, in measuring
our deeds, may say: "'Twas a iob well done".
HOW CAN ICOMBAT
"How can l combat iuvenile delinquency?" is a
question l have never asked myself, because
juvenile delinquency does not exist in my community.
And why not? The reason is that I, and my teen-
age friends, have joined forces with interested
adults to provide supervised recreation and activities
which grant our youth an outlet for pent-up energy.
Our educators have the full confidence of both
parent and student, and have established numerous
business and social clubs, headed by local teen-
agers who exert a tremendous influence for good
among their youthful companions. Dramatics,
athletics, and music are but a few of the many
evening programs in which we participate. Again
kindness, respect and friendship are established.
Within the community I will cite the Lion Cubs,
an organization for teen-agers as an example of
youth participation. Some render invaluable aid in
conducting a midget basketball league, others
plan weekly dances. Some assist in scout work,
while others chaperon the younger children at
Sunday is God's day. We travel To church,
join in group activities, and receive religious
I have told "What l am doing to combat
iuvenile delinquency" with the hope that other
communities may adopt a similar plan,
Our first important venture was the election of class
officers. Under their direction and the supervision of our
sponsor, Mr. Hite, many activities were successfully
completed-a magazine sales campaign was conducted,
class rings were selected, and a skating party was held.
Many iuniors participated in, "Jays A' Roarin", a musical
Junior play time came and what a date we selected
-Friday, April l3. However, "Love ls ln The Air" could
not be iinxed. The cast was selected and rehearsals
began. What fun we had!
The big event of our year was the Junior-Senior
Prom at which we played host to the seniors. The gym
was beautifully decorated in the form of a rose garden.
Weeks were consumed as thousands of roses were
"grown" for the occasion. We slaved and we slaved
as we worked patiently with wire and crepe paper, but
on the evening of May llth we were truly proud as
juniors and seniors assembled to dance to the music of
Jimmy Cannin and his orchestra,
Our last activityfthe school picnic-happily brought
our junior year to a close. Summer vacation and then,
. , , "forward we'll march" To another school turn,-at
the top of the list as Seniors.

One down and two to go. We were told that
this year would be hard scholastically, but we were
sure of it when we received our schedules, and
positive when we received our books. When report
cards were issued, the students proved that, with
a little effort, one could attain success.
The first day of our Sophomore year, we met
our sponsor-Miss Vujcich-who had guided us
through our Freshman year. We were very surprised
to find that, although the school enrollment had
increased, our class had diminished greatly.
The first movement in re-organization was the
election of officers. The students showed wisdom
by electing those whom they thought were best
qualified to represent them.
Quite a few found their place on the athletic
field, others, musically inclined, joined the high
school band and orchestra, the remainder were
content with watching the games and cheering the
boys to victory,
But even though our schedule was hard and
our goal high, we found time to attain membership
in various clubs organized by the school. Our
activities program began with the initiation of our
fellow classmates into the various clubs, participation
in the intramural basketball and volleyball games,
and the display of our ability in dramatics.
We looked forward with enthusiasm to the
coming of the Yuletide season, the decoration of
our home rooms, and our part in the Christmas
As sophomores we visualized the fact that we
needed funds for various events in future years.
When asked if we wished to sponsor a skating
party, we readily agreed upon a date in March,
the venture proved to be profitable.
Exams were passed and as we thought of the
joys of Juniorhood, we had to pause to look back
to our Sophomore year and the many beautiful
memories we shared.

The eager freshmen finally began in August their
journey to the top of the list as Seniors, and now they
were well on their way toward the accomplishment of
The freshman class had many boys who participated
in football, basketball, and baseball, and many became
stars of the game. The girls now ioined the Y-Teens and
prepared for their initiation. They received a list of the
clothing they must wear and the rules they must follow.
The rules were fairly rough, but the group was not
discouraged, because they began planning for the day
when they would make plans for initiation of the
freshmen of next year. The ritual turned out to be fun.
Mr. Strippy, the class sponsor suggested a skating
party to raise money they would need in the future
years. The class co-operated with the plan and the
party was a success.
Finally the time had arrived for the freshmen to
become sophomores. They were eager to reach a higher
rung of the ladder, but were sad at leaving their happy

' John, Jean, Ishmael, and Joseph come
to the end of o school day.
The eighth grade went forward with their heads
held high at the prospect of becoming freshmen. Four
hard years of work lies before them.
The first weeks of school were spent in making new
friends and gaining the acquaintances of the teachers.
Mr. Salem was named as class sponsor.
Many of the students took an active part in the
programs of the school. The Halloween party was one
of the most popular activities with the class. Everyone
dressed in costume and came to the social, determined
to have a good time. They ioined in the games and
some won prizes in the many contests.
A skating party was their only source of income for
the year. A good time was had by all,
Time passed quickly. The class was now prepared
for the county exams. These were soon conquered, and
the class again held heads high as they realized their
dreams of becoming freshmen,
Beginning the climb to the top proved very interesting
for the seventh grade class. The time had come when
they could participate in the activities of the upper-
classmen. They experienced great ioy as they joined in
the Christmas party and the various sports events. New
classes were opened to the students. Gym proved to be
one of the most popular among the entire group.
Students displayed a great deal of interest in their
subjects and were not slow in becoming accustomed to
the change in schools.
Their main event of the year was a skating party.
All ioined in the ticket selling and the effort was not
wasted, there was a large crowd at the rink. The school
busses provided transportation to and from the party.
Prizes were given to the skaters who could perform the
best acts on skates. There was also a cake walk. The
cake was beautifully decorated and the winner shared
his prize with the remaining skaters. A good time was
had by all.

The SECRETARIES received much valuable experience
as they carried out the assignments of their respective
teachers. Their work consisted mostly of cutting stencils
and producing mimeographed copies of tests and Work
sheets. The students on many occasions vvere afforded
opportunities ot taking dictation.
The SCHOOL BOY PATROL was organized by Mr.
Medler and its members deserve much credit for their
faithful vvorlc in all kinds of vveather, The patrol group
stresses the importance of crossing the streets and board-
ding buses at properly established places. Congratula-
tions on a iob well done.
The COMMERCIAL CLUB under the supervision of Mrs.
Nagle and Miss Galbraith proved a valuable factor in
furnishing programs for the football games and all
dramatic productions. The use of color added to the
appearance of the completed work. This was done at
a minimum cost.
The KEY CLUB was headed by Anthony Ziner, with
Mr, Medler and Mr, Margetan serving as sponsors. lts
members operated the school store and conducted noon-
hour entertainment. They held dances after several
games. Much instruction was derived by extending
invitations to industrial leaders to appear as speakers.

The ASSEMBLY committee is a newly formed
organization which was established for the purpose
of having student participation in the selection of
movies and in the general planning of interesting
programs. The support of the entire student body
was secured, the results were that, at an average
rate of ive cents, many late films were shown.
The group enlisted the aid of the dramatic clubs
for special presentations. Mr. l'lite was sponsor.
The LIBRARY club proved invaluable to their
sponsor, Mrs. Caples, in the conduct of routine
duties. The members derived much pleasure in their
tasks of mending torn books, classifying magazines
and current periodicals as suitable classroom
material and checking the proper arrangement of
books. The group was very cooperative in helping
students procure information for class assignments.
The club was educational as well as interesting.
The STAGE CREW is a group of non-glory
seekers who are as essential to the successful
production of a play as the actors themselves. A
setting seldom serves two playsp thus new scenery
must be built, set and painted. Perfect timing in
light and curtain control requires attendance at
the final rehearsals. The care of movie screens is
also one of their tasks. Mr. Margetan, shop

With the presentation of this 1956 Jayonian,
the staff, headed by Mary Kindia as editor-in-chiet,
has completed its duties for the current year. Many
long, weary hours ot writing, editing, rewriting,
and proof-reading were but a tew ot the tasks
which confronted the statt, sponsored by Mr, Hite
and Mr. Salem.
While all members participated in the publica-
tion, certain students deserve mention tor out-

proved invaluable as managing editors. Marian
College, Myrna Kelley and Frances Strippy rewrote
articles to meet word limitations. Doris Gilmore,
Patsy McGuire, and Phyllis Gillin spent many hours

Havrilesky wrote sports news. Delores Kokler served
as advertising manager. Several iuniors-George
Pazin as photographer, Patricia Bolha as artist, and
Virginia Furman, Diane Loya, and Lorraine Kelley
at mounting pictures-gained valuable experience.

We turn back the hands of time to our iunior
year when an enthusiastic group reported to Mr.
Hite and Mr, Salem for tryouts for "Its A Date."
After three weeks of rehearsal, fof course, we were
competent thespians?'??l, the play was ready to
be presented. On March 25, 1955 at 8:00 P. M.
the curtains were opened, and o very nervous cast
made its debut, however, after a few minutes, the
excitement diminished and we felt we did a very
creditable iob of entertaining a capacity audience.

Prospects were really bright for the Blue Jays
in mid-August when an enthusiastic group of foot-
ball candidates, including fifteen lettermen, reported
for physical examinations. After a few days of
tryouts, a squad of thirty-two players embarked
for Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, and a week of
conditioning at Juniata College. Under the tutelage
of Coach Giurich, the Blue and White gridders
became well-drilled in offensive and defensive
The Opening game found Franklin at Johnstown
Catholic, but the score didn't mean the downfall
of the mighty Jays. The next tour games left
followers with smiling faces. Then came the big
game, Conemaugh. The Horses were heavily
favored to defeat the Jays, but the locals put up
a thrilling battle and handed Conemaugh their

Past seasons have found Coach Strippy with
a dirth ot material tor his iunior high football team,
however last tall a large group ot ambitious lads
answered his call. With them the business ot
learning the game and keeping training rules was
quite a serious affair and, although their record
was not most outstanding, they gave promise ot
being worthy replacements for the many varsity
positions lett vacant by graduation.
The Jayonian congratulates the squad on the
earnestness with which they trained and on the
sincerity with which they played. We predict that
many will join varsity coaches, Giurich and Patcher,
at training camp in August, and that the Jays ot
i956 will again be returned victors in the maiority
ot their gridiron battles.

Basketball . . .
Many and diversitied opinions may be expressed
about the basketball season of 1955-56. Pessimists
may look upon the results as disheartening, while
optimists will study the rebuilding program and
look to the future years with hope. Blue Jay
opponents were mostly veteran teams with several
winning league honors and participating in District
6 ploy-offs for the state championship,
Greatly handicapped by lack of height, Coach
Milan Giurich faced the choice of playing the
schedule with a senior squad or of reaching into
the lower ranks and developing for the future. He
answered this problem by using upperclassmen in
early games, and then wisely brought up young
and inexperienced players to complete the season.
Inability to control the boards proved their greatest
obstacle, however they carried into the games a
"never say die" spirit which, with the experience
gained, make the Blue Jay hopes for 1956-57 loom
much brighter. Only two lettermen will be lost
from the late-season squad. The remainder were
freshmen and sophomores.

THE SPORTS SEASONS
ARE NOW COMPLETE
The cheerleaders deserve much credit for the
splendid manner in which they aroused the support
of the student body at all athletic contests. Mrs,
Mulvehill was in charge of the group. They united
with the Pep Club in promoting organized cheering.
Many hours were spent by senior Captain Uzelac
and her squad in drill work. Mary Bosser is the
only other senior cheerleader.
Early spring found a squad of nineteen
candidates, mostly underclassmen, reporting for the
baseball squad. Eager and willing, the boys looked
forward to a fruitful season, however, a weak
pitching staff and inability to hit in the clutch,
combined with spotty defensive work, made winning
a cumbersome task.
