X I ' M big' aniors Senior Class Oflicers President - Robert O'Connor Vice President Peggy Black Secretary - Colleen Sergeant Treasurer Ruth Skinner Senior Class History We are the Senior Class of 1945. When we entered high school as scared freshmen, our only thought was to graduate, las soon as possiblej. The next four years passed all too swiftly, and now that we must leave Freedom High, we realize our happiest moments were spent there. As Juniors we were very successful in raising money for the Junior- Senior Prom, due largely to the patient help of Mrs. Elizabeth Fordyce, our sponsor. At last our dreams have come true. We're Seniors! Under the care- ful guidance of our sponsor, Miss Yanderpool. and yearbook sponsor, Mrs. Patterson, we were soon off on the way to a successful year. We are proud to have the cherished privilege of graduating from Freedom High, and we hope our underclassmen will enjoy their Senior year as much as We have every precious moment of ours.

D. an old grey-haired woman sat by her cozy fireside, rocking in her favorite chair. It was Thelma Fry, now an old maid 82 years old. She has, years ago, retired from her job as head dishwasher at Guthrie's Restaurant, Beaver. She was winding a ball of yarn, and as she twisted it, the yarn became the thread of memory leading her thoughts back to the lives of her friends. Pat McDade has become manager of a grocery store in Rochester, with Betty Krepps and Colleen Sergeant as head clerks and Don Beatty as delivery boy. Dorothy Sander and Janet McCune had been happily married and together became co-writers of a love-lorn column in a large New York newspaper called "Grab a Mate Before It's Too Late." Marty Fox had become the proud owner of a chain of Beaver Valley filling stations. In order to get enough gasoline to take their girls out, Dale Bott and Jimmy Martin had become his garage mechanics. Professor of Chemistry at Pitt, Walter Arbutina had been heralded as successor to the great Einstein. Vic Sepanik, star of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer had hired Jay Stuck as his publicity manager and Ruth Blesse as his private secretary. Delores Bosworth and Bob O'Connor had formed the "Chance to Dance" school with Eleanor Blesse as their model pupil. Harriet and Mildred Dimick had become Manager and Assistant Manager of Mur- phy's 5 and 10 in Rochester. Jack Gould had added a stage show to the attractions at the Freedom Theater aided at the box oflice by his wife, Janice Arnold. For years John Latham had been head artist for Esquire. All of his pictures, of course, had been censored by Mark Roknick, his chief critic. While a dramatic teacher Ruth Whitehouse had been the chief cause of the success of Bill Whipple who had become a soap box orator. Ruth later became minister of the Salem Evangelical Church. Homer Parker had succeeded Milt Crider as janitor of the high school, which now had for its principal, Bob Johnson, lovingly known to the student body as "Horse." Charlena Caplinger and Betty Lou Cocco had started a little Cuckoo Clock shop and when the old lady had visited it, they were all set to give John Conte the "bird." At Don Meehan's "Beautiful, But Underpaid Model Agency," Helen Shumney and Betty Holsingwer had been most successful as cover girls. Bill Giannette, voted least likely to succeed, had not changed his friends' opinions as he used his "High Pressure" sales talk to sell a combination fly trap and egg beater invented by Howard Burton. Active members of the Board of Trade were Warren Ruckert, owner of the Clover Farm Store, Lena Bonaparte manager of "Nick's" and Mary Jane Golletti owner of Golletti's Novelty Store. Helen Antal's dream man from the service had returned and they had lived happily together for years in a little houseboat in the Ohio River owned by Madeline Martin and her "partner in crime", Lenora Watson. Jeanne Brown had ran away after graduating and had joined a carnival, managed by Carl McCurdy, as a tight rope walker. Other added attractions were Peggy Black, sword swallower, and Mary Lou Collins, knife throwing expert. Once proud owners of the "Hat, But You Guess What Hat Shoppe", were Margie Fash and Betty Swartz who made scads of money selling old discarded lamp shades, flower pots, and any other old thing to Doris Powell, fashion expert, and Laura West, make-up artist of R.K.O. Ruth Skinner and Antoinette Di Fanzo had set up a crystal gazing racket at 55.00 a "sneak peek" until appreh.ended by Police Chief Angela Catalano. The old lady smiled wearily as her eyes closed in restful sleep. She could never forget those precious memories. She would always have them.-Always.

May Queen Crowning The May Queen, Dorothy Borro, was chosen by popular vote of the students. The crowning was sponsored by the Newspaper Staff, under the direction of Mrs. Harriet Naser. The procession was led by Peggy Black, Thelma Fry, Helen Shumney and Laura West as heralds. They were followed by Jane McCauley, Nellie Keller, Betty Coulter and Martha Parks, ladies-in-waiting, dressed in evening gowns of pastel shades and carrying arm bouquets of lilacs. The Queen, who wore a beautiful white gown and carried a bouquet of assorted flowers, was preceded to the throne by Kim McCracken as crown bearer, Joyce Stacel and Judy Borro, who scattered flowers in her path. Dorothy was crowned "Queen of the May" by Doris Powell, then editor of the 4'Bulldog Barker." MAY QUEEN Q WlJ4Q1fFff4 M1 ual!

The class, consisting of 88 members, was divided into three sections. With Miss Goll as our sponsor, we held a reception for the freshmen early in the fall, and for the first time in the history of the school, the sophomores decided to pay dues each semester. Our class has had many years of fun together and we are looking forward to two more together. FIRST ROW-W. Bruno, D. Gaskins, J. Rosepink, A. Padezanin, J. Love, H. Dimer- ling, R. Whitehouse, J.

Eighth Grade The Eighth Grade this year under the supervision of their homeroom teachers, Miss Weikal and Miss Ringer, went far in their preparation for high school. They became more enthusiastic about school activities, and whole- heartedly participated in all their school functions. They wish to offer best Wishes to their preceeding classes. They are following your Well-planned footsteps and are striving to set the same example for others after them to follow. FIRST ROW-D. Upperman, P. Dean, C. Bilotto, L. Mengel, D. Bilotto, L. J.

By sponsoring numerous dances, basketball games, football games, chancing off bonds, and holding an annual Tag Day, the Varsity Club was able to purchase sweaters and jackets for Seniors and Juniors who had earned a letter "F" in at least one competitive sport sometime during their high school career. Enough money was left in the treasury to send our football boys to Slippery Rock State Teacher's College for the coming season. The club was sponsored by Mr. Josephs, our new football and basket- ball coach. c FIRST ROW-M. J. Golletti, L. West, J. McCune, P. McDade, B. Fry, H. Martin, P. Black, J. Stacel. SECOND ROW-R.

The Patrol is organized with two captains, Doris Powell for the girls and Warren Ruckert for the boys. No outside patrolling by the boys was done this year, but they aided in the collection of tickets at football and basketball games. The girls patrol the halls in the building, and help keep order at games, too. Our Student Patrol has been very active this year. Their chief aim is to make the school safer for the students.

A few of their activities included Bible reading in the home rooms, participation in a chapel program, a Christmas banquet, collecting toys for a children's home, raising money for mirrors in the girls' room, at- tending church, sending members to the State Council meeting in Harris- burg, attending rallies, swimming at the Y.M.C.A., and their annual Mother-Daughter Banquet.

The purpose of this organization is to spread high standards of Christian qualities throughout the school, community and country. For this purpose the following ideals were set up: clean speech, clean sports- manship, clean scholarship, and clean living. The Hi-Y sent representatives to the annual Tri-Hi-Y and Hi-Y rally which was held at Rochester. At this rally the Freedom Hi-Y was pre- sented the Achievement Award of 43-44. They also have a basketball team that plays other teams in the valley. Again following the example set by the Hi-Y Club for 43-44, they joined the Y.M.C.A. This gave them the permission to swim at least twice a month. Two annual projects of the club are to attend the various churches in town and help in the collection of food for the Passavant Memorial Home. The club this year was sponsored by Mr. Harr.

The entire action took place in the living room of Nick's and Arlene's home in the suburb of a mid-western city. The fun begins when Nicky and Arlene, married only six months decide to separate. The trouble? Nick's rheumatic Aunt Hazel Nutt thinks she should rule the house, but Arlene's imaginative mother, Genevieve Jarboe, urges Arlene not to submit to Nicky's ridiculous masculine tyranny. The young couple decide to move to their separate "frat" houses. Nicky invites his best friend, Bill Jones, to keep an eye on the house and Arlene invites Dot Wilson, her best friend, for the same reason. More confusion results when Bill's society girl friend, Audry Hardwick and her Uncle Hiram, who imagines he is suf- fering from attacks of high blood pressure, arrive for a visit. At the same time Dot's boy friend, Wilmer Sneed, drops in. Things really start happening when Mrs. Jarboe, and Aunt Hazel meet and fire their mutual dislikes for each other in no uncertain terms. Each character, for the sake of convenience, assumes the identity of some other char- acter until everything is in a state of hilarious confusion which is heightened almost to hysteria when Word gets around that hatchet slinging maniacs and knife throwing idiots are on the loose. To add to the fun are the antics of Aunt Jubilee, the Negro cook, Elberta Peach, and Pothagerous Brown, Jubilee's run-away husband, who turns up as a "Wild Man From Borneo" in a visiting circus. Soon everything is straightened out happily for everyone.

Coach Varsity Football V The 1944 football squad was ably coached by two newcomers to the Freedom High School, namely Mike Josephs and Gene Harr. Mr. Josephs is formerly from Pitt Univer- sity where he was a member of the faculty. Mr. Harr is a graduate of Freedom High School and formerly coached Conway's crack Junior High team. Following the one week training period at Slippery Rock State Teacher's College, Coach Joseph settled on Sepanik, Johnson, Moss, Parker, Ruckert, Giannette, Fox, Mee- han, Uzyak, Smith, Trettle, Harold Martin, Latham, Mabin, McIntosh, and O'Connor as his varsity. While at Slippery Rock Coach Joseph installed the T-formation Can en- tirely new systemJ with the potential all county quarterback Rudy Trombetta handling the ball. A great blow struck immediately as Rudy was forced to drop football due to a serious arm injury. Freshman George Uzyak, a 130-pound passing wizzard, was called on to fill the shoes of Trombetta and performed like a veteran all year. George also handled the kicking duties ably, averaging over thirty yards on each kick. The won and lost record is not very impressing as the Bulldogs lost seven out of ten games to their opponents. A high light of the season was Freedom's holding the big Red and Black of Aliquippa to three touchdowns. We're looking for next year's team to avenge the defeats handed to us by Beaver, Monaca, Leetsdale, Mars, Zelienople, and Hopewell. Two Junior half-backs, Bud Martin and Edgar Martin, will not be with next year's team as Uncle Sam has already put his finger on them. Bud would have been a four- year letterman had he been permitted to finish his schooling. Next year's team will be minus the line smashes of Vic Sepanik, the bruising tackles of Bob Johnson, the hard charging of Homer Parker CU. S. Navyj and Jed Latham, the pass catching of Don Meehan, the spirit and fight of "Butch" Ruckert and Billy Gian- nette, the ruggedness of Marty Fox CU. S. Navyb, and the stopping of Bob O'Connor. All of these boys have completed their twelve years of school and are all either in or are awaiting call by the armed forces. The varsity of 1945 will probably be molded around Jim Trettle, Dick Smith, Carl DePaolis, George Uzyak, Wesley Mabin, Floyd Mclntosh, Roy Moss and Ed Winston. Trettle and Smith are both great open field runners and should have the best year of their football careers. Wesley Mabin is an excellent pass receiver and is a vicious tackler on defense. Students: If you want to have a winning team, get out there and cheer the boys on to victory. We play Monaca for our opening game. Don't forget, Monaca beat us in 1944 and will be out to repeat! We're not going to let them, are we? To the Team of next year we say: "A chain is only as strong as its weakest link." Freedom High will have no missing link if you do your individual part to the best of your ability. Remember, too, that you can't score without the ball, so "get that ball."' Summary of I944 ALIQUIPPA-20 FREEDOM-0 In the opening game of the season the big Red and Black team of Aliquippa downed a fighting Bulldog eleven, 20-0. The Freedom boys showed spirit that had been missing for many years. On defense Vic Sepanik played a "bang-up" game, as did Bob Johnson. "Scorch" Smith was the bright spot on offense throughout the evening. SHENANGO-0 FREEDOM-0 Our second game found Freedom out-playing a rugged Shenango team, although neither team was able to score. Harold Martin, diminutive fullback, drove to the one-foot line at one point of the game, but on the next play a mix-up in signals resulted in a fumble. Marty Fox played the best defensive game for the Bulldogs. MARS--33 FREEDOM-6 In a surprise upset a hard-hitting Mars High School overwhelmed the Freedom eleven in the mud at Mars, 33-6. Before the Bulldogs could get settled, Mars had thrice crossed the goal line. During the second half Coach Josephs substituted freely, giving much needed experience to the substitutes. ZELIENOPLE-14 FREEDOM-6 Scoring twice in the third period, Zelie defeated a spirited Freedom team, 14-6. Freedom's lone tally resulted from a pass, Uzyak to Vic Sepanik in the end zone. Johnson attempted to convert but his kick was blocked. Dick Smith was again the offensive star for Freedom. BEAVER-25 - FREEDOM-0 Again this year Freedom lost its traditional game with their bitter rival, the Beaver Bobcats. The rnud and rain slowed the T-formation of our Bulldogs tremendously. Carl DePaolis, big Sophomore center, played a great defensive game while Uzyak was the bright spot on offense. Vic Sepanik played his usual good game on both defense and offense. Football Games LEETSDALE-13 FREEDOM-6 After starting off with a bang to score in the first few minutes of the game, Lady Luck turned against our boys. Freedom badly outplayed the Spartans only to lose a close game 13-6. Bud Martin was the chief ground gainer of the day. He also scored our lone touchdown. The Freedom line was a power-house throughout the game as Fox, DePaolis, Parker, Moss and McIntosh smashed their opponent's offense consistently. SEWICKLEY-6 FREEDOM-13 Our team finally settled down to play the brand of' ball that they were capable of playing all year. "Scorch" Smith and Bulldog Sepanik were again outstanding for the Freedom team. Jim Trettle showed that he will be a real offensive threat in '45 as he raced 75 yards on a pass interception. MONACA--19 FREEDOM-0 In a one-sided contest the Indians of Monaca scored a surprise 19-0 victory over the Freedom High eleven. Vic Sepanik made his debut as fullback in this game and gave a good account of himself. HOPEWELL-21 FREEDOM-0 Playing their last out-of-town game the Bulldog eleven dropped a hard-fought game to the large Hopewell Township team. Vic Sepanik and Jim Trettle did the majority of the ball carrying for Freedom, while Johnson was strong on the defensive. BESSEMER-0 FREEDOM-0 To draw the curtain on the 1944 season the hard-fighting Freedom team held the hapless Bessemer squad to a 0-0 deadlock. John Latham's all around playing stood out, as did Mabin, Sepanik, DePaolis and Mclntosh. ' P ME1-:HAN JOHNSON Senior Lettermen In Action F LATHAM SEPANIK R Senior Lettermen HOMER PARKER-Although he had never played football until his senior year, Homer has proved his worth as a stubborn tackle. Grim and determined describe him best on the playing field. WARREN RUCKERT-"Butch" has been a letterman for two years. His gigantic size has helped him to be a constant defensive threat at his tackle position. JOHN LATHAM-A converted end, "Jed" became the quarterback in our T-formation system. Bothered by bad legs all year, he was used sparingly as a passer. BILL GIANNETTE-Our hard-working guard was best known for his spirit and fight. A two-year letterman, Bill will be a hard man to replace. ROBERT JOHNSON-Usually the biggest man on the field, "Horse" took ' advantage of his size to pile up the opposition. On offense, he was a fine pass receiver, his catches setting up many of our touchdowns. VICTOR SEPANIK-Vic was the mainstay of the Bulldog squad all year. In his senior year he was considered one of the county's best fullbacks. Many times Vic caused the yardsticks to be moved forward. MARTIN FOX-One of the most rugged defensive men in the county was Marty in his senior year. When an opponent's ball carrier was hit by Marty, he usually stayed hit for awhile. DON MEEHAN-WHS one fellow on the squad who never quit trying. He was a good offensive -end, but had some bad luck when he had his leg fractured. Even after this he came out to practice. FIRST ROW-D.

Varsity Basketball Once again the Freedom High School players have completed a very successful bas- ketball season. Their long unbroken string of victories was broken by Rochester by a score of 29-23. This game decided the sectional championship. Many will agree that if we had not been "off" in our shooting in this one contest, we would have been the champions of Section XI. Coach Josephs, after the traditional pre-league experimentation, settled on Latham, Johnson, O'Connor, Mabin and Dyminski as his starting line-up. Homer Parker was the "sixth man" on the team as he capably played all positions. The chief substitute roles were handled by Harold Martin fnow in the Navyb, Moss, Winston, DePaolis and Farls. Don Meehan, a senior, was forced to drop basketball because of an old football injury. "Jed" Latham was the leading scorer on the team and he ranked very high in the sec- tional scoring race. Lanky Bob Johnson was close behind Latham in the scoring de- partment and was the best rebounder Freedom has had in many years. Again this year, Bob O'Connor was the most clever player on the team. By dribbling back and forth across the floor, he "froze" the ball for two minutes against Monaca. Mabin and Dy- minski were outstanding on defense and both were dangerous set shots. Four seniors have played their last game for Freedom High School. They are Bob Johnson, Homer Parker, John Latham and Bob O'Connor. Next year's team will un- doubtedly be built around Wesley Mabin and John Dyminski. Coming up from the Re- serves are several promising boys, namely, DePaolis, Love, Winston, Farls, Moss, Graham. Remember, fellows, "More fight means more Wins."

Junior High Basketball Under the coaching of Mr. Harr, assistant football coach, the Freedom Junior High cagers enjoyed a very successful season in 1945. Outstand- ing among their long line of victories were wins over Ambridge, Monaca, Beaver and Midland. In the Beaver and Midland games the Freedom players tripled their opponent's scores. The starting line-up was usually composed of Donald Hall and Law- rence Martin, forwards, Mike Witouski or Henry Devries, centerg and Albert Totera and Casper DePaolis as guards. Hall and Martin were the leading scorers of the team and both ranked very high in the sectional scoring race. Lost to next year's team are Hall, Witouski, Devries, DePaolis, DeDominicus and Hoffman, all of whom will be candidates for the Varsity and Reserves. Martin is the only veteran on hand for Mr. Harr's '46 team but several promising Eighth graders, namely, Simmons, Zinkham, Wolfe, Weaver, and Jimmy Robinson will be on hand to add strength to the Junior High teams.

The players were: DePaolis, A. Love, Winston, Farls, Diklich, Savanovich, C. Graham, Arbutina, Brockett, Borro, R. Graham, McCauley, J. Love and Moss. Of these boys, DePaolis, Winston, Farls and Moss gained some valuable experience playing with the varsity. The boys had a very successful year and should provide Freedom with another winning varsity team next year. lil. ,,,, ,,i, , , inn, Freedom AK Reserve Basketball Scores 1944 - I945 21 1 11 1111St. Veronica 24 1 11 veee Ambridge 45 111 11 11New Brighton 21 1 11111Leetsdale 35 1 111 1 11New Brighton 12 1111 11111St. Veronica 24 1 11 11111Beaver 51 1 11 1 Sewickley 43 11 1 11 Hopewell 43 11 1Monaca 26 1 11 1111Midland 31 11 11 1111Rochester 25 1 11 Beaver 22 1 11 1 Sewickley 42 1 11 1 Hopewell 41 1 11 1 1Monaca 33 1 11 1 Midland 34 1 1 1 Rochester 20 1 1 Leetsdale llur Patrons Dravo Corporation-"Keystone Sand Division" Freedom Cash Market-"Fresh Meats, Groceries and Vegetables"--We Serve the Best.
