The modern style of architecture has evolved from a
changing life in a changing world. With the atom and the
space age dominating the thoughts of men, the modern archi-
tect, who is an artist-engineer, must think in terms of new
materials and new uses of old materials, of new functions, and
new advances in science. Gateway High School is an exciting
example of modern architecture. It opens up to admit light
and air and the spacious courts allow the inside to flow out
into the out-of-doors. The building has long, clean, unbroken
lines with heavy emphasis on the horizontal, flat roofs and little
ornamentation. Colored enamel metal plus textured plaster,
glass, brick and aluminium lend a warmth and beauty to the
steel and concrete construction. Fortunate, indeed, are students
of the Monroeville-Pitcairn Joint Schools, for they have as part
of their heritage, a modern educational facility of lasting
beauty to their communities.

Gateway Senior High School represents the combined efforts of two
communities united with a com on purpose of providing the best education
for our youth. The citizens of Monroeville and Pitcairn have provided
this magnificant educational structure, founded on the premise that
democracy in order to survive and function, must have an educated citizenry
modified by the desire to see our youth given greater opportunities to the
full potential of their individual ability. Gateway Senior High School
would not be a reality today without the cooperation and combined sacrifices
of these two communities.
The school plant must be considered more than brick, mortar and
educational equipment. It is a place purposely designed for effective
teaching and efficient learning. It was built and equipped by the citizens
of the two communities to house the educational program for the youth, The
combining into one student body of the students of Monroeville and Pitcairn
of Senior High School age, through the joint plan of reorganization, has
made possible the implementation of a full educational program, curricular
and extra-curricular, which otherwise would not have been possible. This
becomes most significant because the breadth and depth of the educational
program holds the key to full educational opportunity for each individual.
Gateway Senior High School is a symbol of'the willingness of the
citizens of two com unities to work cooperatively to provide expanded and
enriched educational opportunities for our children. It is our sincere
desire that students who attend Gateway Senior High School will gain the
educational strength and wisdom that will enable them to take their
respective places in our democratic society and ultimately make their
contribution to it.
May I take this opportunity to extend my greetings and best wishes
to the first graduating class of Gateway Senior High School.
Very truly yours,

Nay I take this opportunity, in the FIRST edition of THE PORTAVIAN,
to offer my personal congratulations on the successful completion of the
FIRST year of Gateway Senior High School.
we all treasure our memories as time passes and the 58-59 school
year has many that will make pleasant conversation for years to come.
The handicaps of construction of the first few weeks...the first season
for the black and gold athletic teams .... the neat and colorful appearance
of the band and their halftime shows .... the adjustment to the rigorous
academic program in keeping with the demands of the atomic age fremember
how you boasted and told your friends how Hhardn you workedj...new friends
...new teachers...new equipment to work with in your classes...new successes
in your various classes and activities...and many other pleasant memories
as pictured in the pages of the 1959 PORTAVIAN.
You have had many opportunities that all the youth of the world do
not have and we hope you have profited from these experiences. Gateway
is a beautiful high school plant with modern educational equipment and a
staff of well qualified and competent professional educators. Your personal
success will be determined in large measure by the manner in which you studied
and worked as a student at Gateway High School.
To the class of 1959, may your life be filled with success, good health
and the happiness you desire and deserve. Hay you always be proud of the
honor of being the FIRST class graduated from Gateway High School.
To the class of 1960, may you review and evaluate this year so as to
improve your work during your senior year.
To the class of 1961, you will be the FIRST class to complete the full
three years of high school at Gateway and we hope you will continue to grow
with the traditions and expectations established during this year.
May you all remember the sacrifice and work of your parents to give
you the advantage of a good high school education and the dedication of the
faculty and the school administration to prepare you for a happy and useful

GUIDANCE PUT US INTO ORBIT
Mrs. Biesuz listens patiently to questions ol an inquiring young
During the first week of school our guidance
department was swamped with hundreds of
students desiring schedule changes. Many prob-
lems were solved by the efficiency and coopera-
tion of our guidance counsellors, Mrs. Mary
Biesuz and Mr. Claire Sparks. As the year pro-
gressed, numerous interviews were conducted
and various tests administered. Sophomores and
juniors were aided with selection of subjects for
the following year and qualified seniors were
informed of scholarship opportunities. Among
the tests conducted during the year were the
Juniata College Test, the Kuder Interest Inven-
tory, the California Test of Mental Maturity,
and the National Merit Scholarship Test. The
scores from these tests and the guidance we re-
ceived have influenced our plans for the future
and provided us with an ultimate goal in life.
Mr. Sparks advises a Senior student.

MATH CHARTED OUR CCURSE
Math plots our course day by day as though we were only a point on a huge
graph on which our ability is plotted against our intentions. From Algebra I to
Trigonometry we gained valuable information that will assist us in our future
be it industrial, commercial, or scientific. Our minds were broadened by our
efforts which were directed and supplemented by our math department. We
owe a great deal to those teachers who showed us the way. Only we ourselves
can be held accountable for the outcome of our lives.
Being a new school, a major objective of the math department was to set a
high standard curriculum to be met by succeeding classes. And this was ac-
complished. We will be able to look back on Gateway with great pride and ad-
miration in the coming years.

Daily practice was in preparation lor the Spring Concert.
In our modern world today, music moves our
minds in many ways. Two ways which were
elaborated upon at Gateway were instrumental
and vocal music.
The blending of many different kinds of
voices was created in our choral classes. Learn-
ing to read music and to control our singing
voices is very important and is a knowledge
that will always be of use to us.
Especially active in instrumental classes were
our section rehearsals. These took place one
period each week by individual instrumental
groups. The main purpose of these groups was
for students to obtain a little extra help with
musical selections used in the regular band
In conclusion, we find that music has defi-
nitely moved the minds of many of our students.

WE LEARNED FRCM
The historical accounts that we found in our history texts enabled us to see
solutions to current problems. World history informed us of the civilizations
of the seven continents of the world and the rapid growth of numerous types of
government. By studying the peoples of distant lands we developed a toleration
for customs, beliefs, and ways of life that differ from our own. The formation of
the original thirteen states and the early beginnings of our nation's government
were important stepping-stones in American history. For seniors Problems of
Democracy was an excellent preparation for entering the business world or
furthering our educations. The knowledge that we gained in politics, banking
and finance, and economics will readily be put to practice in the near future.
All of the phases of social studies taught us to think for ourselves and to seek
the truth before making important decisions.

HOME ECCNOMICS BRIGHTEN
OUR EVERYDAY LIVES
Everyone knows of homes that seem to run like clockwork. The house is al-

worked. She has time for outside activities. Her secret is good home manage-
In our Home Economics classes we learned the basic skills in cooking, sew-
ing and making the home a happy and comfortable place in which to live.

BRCADENED OUR HORIZON
One of the most helpful subjects taken in high schools
is the study of a foreign language. Studying subjects
such as Spanish, Latin, or French, not only helped us to
speak the language, but also aided us in understanding
the history and customs of the people who speak that
dialect. Our Spanish students became quite familiar
with the dress and customs of the Spanish people, and
the French students learned to appreciate the beauty of
the French language. Our Latin students delved into
the old and dead, but fascinating, Latin period, and
translated various stories concerning the Roman Em-
pire. Many words taken from these three languages con-
stitute a major part of our own English vocabulary. Our
students soon discovered the importance of learning
another language, for it enlarged their vocabulary, and
knowledge of our native tongue.

. . . . . and as we look back on
this year we recall the first day
of school as if it were yesterday
For many of us this was a new
experience because the year be-
fore we had all attended dif
ferent schools. The following
weeks became a getting ac
quainted period on the part of
the student! and teachers. As
the year progressed, we dis
covered we had a common
bond, which is known as "Gate
way" school spirit. Remember
our fabulous football and bas
ketba-l-1 games. How could we
ever forget them! In fact, the
whole school year was filled
with wonderful memories of our
In the years to come, Gateway will be known by its students. The three
classes of fifty nine set a fine example to be upheld by classes of the future.
Most of us can be proud of our accomplishments at Gateway and will look back
to those days with appreciation.
Students are given a very important place in the composure of this annual
because of the role which we played in the development of the school year.
Seniors are pictured in the first of the three student sections. Life-like, portraits
of the Seniors were employed to suggest vivid memories of our days at Gate-
way. Underclassmen were given individual shots that would be more legible.
This yearbook is devoted to you, the students of Gateway, for your efforts which
meant so much to the development of a policy to be followed by our successors.
Nine hundred students of the three classes at Gateway cooper ated magnani-
mously with the administration in accomplishing the task that was set before
them in that first school year of our new high school, nineteen fifty nine. We
students realized that this year was the golden opportunity to set down a system
of high standards to be met by future classes. Many of us had the experience
of attending other schools of the area in our sophomore and junior years. This
helped us to understand the reasoning behind many of the new ideas and rules
which we encountered. Cooperation and understanding of the merits of our new
ways proved to be fruitful and we students were responsible for this.
Our school was the recipient of extensive publicity during those first few
months. This was due to the ultra modern architecture of Gateway. As the new-
ness wore off, the attention that our school received was centered around the
actions and attitudes of the students. Our reputation will hinge on the type of
publicity that the students demand. Again, the ball bounces back to the students.
Are we to allow our many good qualities to be overshadowed by those few un-
praiseworthy traits, or will we persist in accentuating the positive and minimiz-
ing the negative? This is our decision.
A S Q
K il q
For everyone education is growth governed by discipline and continuous
curiosity. One criterion of this growth is the ability to adapt to changing
conditions. The seniors, pioneer class of Gateway Senior High School, have
offered evidence of successful preparation for such adjustment. Assembling
in September in an unfinished building, they were limited to activities within
academic classroomsg representing varied scholastic backgrounds and social
interests, they had little opportunity for the rapid acquaintance which develops
best in large-group action. Nevertheless they were able to assume leadership
as monitors in the cafeteria and corridors, to sponsor the first social activity,
the Christmas dance, and to plan a successful yearbook by the end of the Srst
semester. Thus they gained a certain disciplined uniformity. However, con-
sistent interest in scholastic endeavor is somewhat lacking in the ,class.'FUr
many seniors, graduation will end their formal years of schooling, years
that are few indeed, considering the average span of life. Success and hap-
piness will be attained only by a constant desire for mental and spiritual
needs. Developing and maintaining an interest in knowledge not only will en-
rich personal lives but may have far-reaching effects, eventually influencing
the prosperity of the nation.

DEATH BE NOT PROUD
Death be not proud, though some have called
Mighty and dreadful, for, thou art not soe,
For, those, whom thou think'st thou dost over-
Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill
From rest and sleepe, which but thy pictures
Much pleasure, then form thee, much more must
And soonest our best men with thee doe goe,
Rest of their bones, and soules deliverie.
Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, dings, and
And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse
And poppie, or charms can make us sleepe as
And better than thy stroake. Why swell'st thou
One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally,
And death shall be no moreg death, thou shalt

if Pat Licheniels and Alice O'BIock talk junior Class business.
Oliver W. Holmes once said, "Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul,
as the swift seasons roll!" Little do the members of Gateway's first Junior Class
realize how swiftly those seasons do roll, but throughout their school career
they have been building mansions-those of character, intellect, and friendship.
The repeating cycle of the seasons has etched on their minds the teachings of
parents, faculty, and experience.
The difficulties these students have encountered will soon pass away-their
sojourn as underclassmen will end shortly. As Seniors they will not forget the
experiences of this year but will use them as a foundation for future achieve-
ments. Their success will be measured by the passage of time, as the seasons
roll on. Growth of intellect and character will be the result of their associations
-present, past, and future. As Longfellow so aptly said,
"Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of timefl

We, the Sophomore Class of fifty nine, have spent our first
year in Gateway High. The impressions we garnered and the
friendships we made will stay with us forever. During our next
two years in this school, we hope to be able to carry on the pre-
cedents and traditions that have been established by this year's
graduating class, and to make our own contributions to the his-
tory of Gateway. We feel very fortunate in being the First class
to spend all three years of high school at Gateway. We are not
hampered by years and years of traditiong we will have a part
in establishing and maintaining customs and practices that will
stay here at Gateway after we are gone.
We offer our sincere congratulations to the Senior Class of
1959, and our good wishes go with them wherever they may go

had a slow beginning. The var-
ious organizations and their
sponsors, not only provided
great enjoyment for all partici-
pants, but gave students an op-
portunity to increase their
knowledge, and to work together
in a unified manner, while striv-
ing for a set goal. The accom-
plishments made by these
groups have established a pat-
tern to be followed and adopted
by those students in the coming
years. For this reason, we have
all worked exceedingly hard to
lay a precedence to be met by

The high stepping majorettes in their white and gold
uniforms, under the direction of Ray Hunter, drum
major, and Peggy Heasley, head majorette, did a superb
job of entertaining at the football games, parades, and
the band concert. Their fine twirling, dance steps, and
other routines were enjoyed by all who saw them. Many
evenings were spent after school practicing in either the
Cafeteria or the hall adjacent to the Band Room, using
a tape recorder for their source of rhythm and music.
Getting to the school a half hour before the band in
order to go over the show was "all in a days work" to

The band, under the direction of Mr. Schuch, consisted of 80 members, in-
cluding 7 peppy majorettes and a high-stepping drum major.
Band practice was in full swing by the middle of summer. Long hot hours
were spent marching on the parking lot at the Junior High School in Monroe-
ville. There were also many playing rehearsals in the bandroom as well as out-
side. Section rehearsals, held during this time, helped to build a strong and well-
Football season got under way with many fine halftime performances being
enjoyed by the spectators. This was a great opportunity for our band to display
their talents both in marching and playing.
The band also participated in the Halloween and Christmas parades held in
Concert season was no exception. The concert band's first appearance was
at the joint P. T. A. meeting held on March 19, 1959. Another concert for the
public was held in the spring. The members of the band, soloists, and instru-
mental ensembles, worked diligently to produce one of the finest concerts
Gateway shall ever hear.
During the school year, several band members participated in band and
orchestra festivals sponsored by the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association.
The members of the band and Mr. Schuch are to be congratulated for the
excellent music and fine performances which they worked so hard to present to
us during our first year at Gateway.

The melodius blending of 72 carefully-selected voices
composed our colorful and outstanding mixed chorus.
Under the skilled supervision of Miss Barclay, the
chorus director, each individual learned the importance
of mutual respect and cooperation. Many students who
possessed a deeper interest for choral music organized
into trios and sextets. With the arrival of our piano in
early February, a new and noticeable enthusiasm grew.
The entire group practiced earnestly to make this lirst
mixed chorus a memorable part of Gateways growing
A little levity lessens the lethargy.
Miss Barclay also included in her busy schedule the direc-
tion of the girls' chorus. Twice weekly this unique combination
of soprano and alto voices filled our chorus room with lovely
choral arrangements. Having access to the piano was a great
asset and everyone considered it a very welcome addition to
our music department. These girls worked diligently toward
the perfection of each new piece. Our entire student body deeply
appreciated the sincere efforts of the girls' chorus throughout

Sue Senlt aims lor accuracy from a prone position.
The Rifle Club, known as the 'lGateway Gunners," was one of our largest
activities. Although there was little use of the rifles, the members learned the
fundamental parts of the rifle, its operation, and safety rules to be followed.
The team was divided into sections which met separately after school.
Some of the first operations which they learned were the correct manner of
aiming, firing, breath control, and scoring. These operations were learned after
school with special training devices.
In the coming years it is hoped that the team will be in the W.P.I.A.L., and
be one of the strongest teams.

The name of our biology club is ZRH, Cpronounced
Zo-eb, which is the Greek word for life. It is the pur-
pose of ZQH to promote among its members a better
understanding of nature and the biological sciences.
This understanding was gained by individual projects,
lectures, and important field trips to museums, wild life
reserves, and other points of interest. Students inter-
ested in ZQH were required to maintain at least a
C average in their school subjects. To establish a high
level of activity, each member had an individual re-
search project on which he was required to present
a monthly progress report to the club. Throughout the
year six standing committees studied the various facets
of individual and club programs undertaken. All mem-
bers of our biology club were grateful for the oppor-
tunity to work in such a fully-equipped science de-
partment as was provided them.

students wishing to further their education. Dur-

and irregular. With the beginning of the second
semester, we held our meetings every week on
alternate days and periods. The students af-
filiated with Beta Club learned of the colleges
which offered the subject or subjects in which
they wanted to specialize. We selected ten new
members this past year. These students were
required to maintain an A or B average and to
seriously be considering a college career. We
hope that these new members will gain guidance
from Beta just as their fellow graduating mem-
bers prepared themselves for their post-high

is a chapter of the national organization. The members
were enrolled in homemaking in junior and senior
high schools throughout the United States, Puerto Rico,
and Guam. Promotion of good homemaking practices,
careers in Home Economics, and better homes and
community life are the main objectives of the club.
Enjoyable to the entire school were the bake sales
which were conducted during lunch hours on various
days throughout the school year. We will always re-
member the initiation which was conducted in the pres-
ence of our parents. However, all was not work, for we
attended the performance of "Cinerama-South Seas"
at the Warner Theater and enjoyed ourselves at the
Mother and Daughter Banquet.

HEALTH AND DENTAL STAFF
The schoo1's records and correspondence were
handled very efficiently throughout the school
year by our competent office staff. There was
always a smiling face and helping hand when
information or office facilities were needed. This
was one of the main reasons that our first year
at Gateway was such a pleasant one.
The cafeteria staff spent many tedious hours
in a hot kitchen preparing nutritious and health-
ful meals for our students and teachers. The
food was not only delicious, but was served in a
colorful and efficient way by a cheerful staff.

When the doors of Gateway
were opened in the fall of
nineteen fifty eight, students
who had previously attended
other neighboring schools were
stymied by the large student
body at Gateway Senior High
School. During that first period
of adjustment, students and ad-
ministration were faced with the
task of organizing and becom-
ing acquainted. This was ac-
complished through sports. Our
school was represented very
capably in district competition
by our athletes. Starting off with
football and continuing through
basketball, rifle, track, and base-
ball, students were given ample
time to meet new friends. Our
students appreciated the efforts
of the team participants and
understood the many obstacles
facing the coaches. They placed
their hopes in the future and
so a sound foundation was built
for sports in coming years at

The first production of the Gateway Senior High School Ath-
letic Department was a football team of which we were all
proud. Not knowing the size of our student body, th - W.P.I.A.L.
announced that our football team could not enter the league
this year, therefore, all our games were exhibition. As our stad-
ium was not completed, we used the Wilmerding Stadium for
our home games which were played on Saturday nights.
We kicked ofif the season with a victory at North Allegheny
25-7 on Saturday afternoon, September 13. With one victory
under our belts, we met a strong team in Bellmar which we tied
7-7 at Wilmerding Stadium, our temporary home. At Swissvale,
we again met a stubborn, strong team but we rose up to the
occasion and defeated them, 6-0, on an intercepted pass by
Harry Stevick before 2,000 rain-soaked fans. We returned home
to play Freedom with an undefeated record, the Bulldogs ran
into a red-hot Gateway team and were trounced 39-6. Two of
our touchdowns were scored on long passes: one from Painter to
Stevick for 37 yards and the other from Painter to Fritchman
for 45 yards. Our other touchdowns were scored by Bert Solak,
Eugene Corl, Bob Steffenino, and Ed Hahnfeldt. Our next op-
ponent was Fifth Avenue, undefeated in city league competition
and considered one of the top ranking high school teams in the
city of Pittsburgh. Bob Steffenino scored our first touchdown
after substantial ground gains by Cain, Corl, and Lobaugh. On
the Fifth Avenue 14 yard line Randy Cain took the handoff,
got into the secondary, eluded two would-be tacklers, and went
over standing up to score for our other touchdown. The final
score, undefeated Gateway 13-Fifth Avenue O!

Painter to score on pass plays of 55 yards and 22 yards. Cliff

Our one and only defeat, a heartbreaker, was suffered at the

The stalwarts of this years team were our first-stringers! They
were Jim Fritchman, Right End, Harry Stevick, Left End, Bert
Solak, Right Tackle, Wade Logan, Left Tackle, Ron Foster,
Right Guard, John Slack, Left Guard, Frank Debone, Center,
Butch Painter, Quarterbackg Cliff Lohr and Randy Cain, Half-
backsg Eugene Corl, Fullback. We were co-captained very ex-
pertly by Wade Logan, Jim Fritchman, and Ron Foster.
They were a fine group of boys who cooperated together,
and made many sacrifices throughout the season. This was quite
evident due to the fine record for 1958! They had to hurdle
many obstacles since this was the first year of the joint high
school. The team, as a whole, was very worthy of all the glory
that was so deservingly bestowed upon them. They put in many
tiring hours of strenuous work in order to give Gateway High
School glory on the football gridiron. The coaches were very
happy at the completion of the season, not only from the stand
point of wins and losses, but also for the opportunity to work
with such a fine group of young men which made the season an
even more successful one.
The "Gators" were Seniors: Harry Stevick, Jim Fritchman,
Larry Buczkowski, Rod Irwin, Wade Logan, Bert Solak, Patsy
Pino, Ron Foster, John Slack, Eugene Corl, Cliff Lohr, Randy
Cain, and Frank DeBone. The team included Juniors: Vern
Walker, Butch Painter, Ed Lobaugh, Larry Peer, Gary Gosnell,
Chuck Boyer, Butch Loffredo, Jim Heidler, Nick Fiasco, Bob
Steffenino, Bob Smith, Bob Quear, Jack Grayson, and Wayne
Jordon. The Sophornores were: Bob McNeil, Ed Hahnfeldt, Dan
Schuckers, Ed Schmitt, Bill Hoover, and Milan Drakulic.
A great season for a great team for a great school for two

Gateway's first basketball team was an inspiration and a
credit to our school. They were ably coached by Mr. John
Galagaza and Mr. Regis Laughlin. The "Gators" opened their
exhibition schedule at Kittaning where we were downed, 50 to
33, with Chuck Cowell scoring ten points. Our first home game,
played on the junior high floor, was against a strong Norwin
team. Although Chuck Cowell and Ernie Chadderton each
scored four points to lead Gateway's scoring, we lost 57 to 26.
In our next game we avenged our football defeat at the hands of
Oakmont, by scoring a 27 to 24 victory! Butch Painter bagged
nine points while Lee Harkins socked eight. We lost our next
game at Norwin by the score of 60 to 18 with Russ

The Gateway Junior Varsity Basketball Team, known as
the "J.V.'s," also proved a credit to our school. Capably .coached
by John Galgaza and Regis Laughlin, the j'.V.'s set the stage
for the varsity games. The team, set up to give the boys exper-
ience for future years, Consisted of sophomores primarily and
a few juniors. Several of these boys will be called upon next
year to boost the varsity to greater basketball heights. The
final record for the '58-'59 season was two wins and eighteen
losses. In coming years these boys will be exposed to varsity
competition, and they will duly meet this competition with their
freshly acquired skills.

MAY STAND FOR MANY YEARS.
The track team represented Gateway High School very well this year in
ability as well as in sportsmanship. Coached by Mr. Donnellan and Mr. Blan-
kenbuehler, we made a very line showing for ourselves. In our first meet at
home, the experienced Penn Hills Indians proved too strong for the Gators with
the final score being 109-18. We, however, bounced back to whip the Duquesne
Dukes at home again, 82-45. Plum also proved a weaker opponent and were
trounced 87-39. The victim of Gateway's third straight triumph was Braddock.
The main attraction of this meet was the 100 yd. dash which pitted Charley
Powell, Braddock speedster, against our Jim Fritchman. Jim proved the faster
and won by live yards. Our second defeat of the season came at the hands of
Turtle Creek by the score of 67-60, a tough one to lose. Our next and final meet
proved to be another heartbreaker as Homestead nosed us out, 65-62. The high-
light of Gateway's ,59 track season came at Mt. Lebanon. Being invited to the
Mt. Lebanon Relay Meet was a distinction since this was our first year in
W.P.I.A.L. competition. But of more importance is the fact that our "880" relay
team placed third in a field of many participants.
The "runners" on this years team were: Aker, Barton, Boring, Braden, Camp-
bell, Diable, Emigh, Gunther, Henkel, Lohr, Mirro, Quinn, Nicolazzo, Shultz,
Sell, Szalanczy, Waltour, Zerker, Rutherford, Walters, Heidler, and Smith. The
"field men" consisted of Bryant, Walker, Foltz, Pasky, Beckett, McNeil, and
Slack with Fritchman, Borth, Stark, Hoener, Lekawa, and Steffy participating
in both track and field events. Our record was 3 wins and 3 losses.

IN FIRST SEASON
Gateway High School had a successful baseball season. Al-
though the boys lost several close games, they proved to be fine
sportsmen and a credit to our school. They were coached by
Mr. Johnson and Mr. Szakalac. Gateway opened their regular
league season against Penn Claridge at Pitcairn. They were
shutout, 7-O, with six of Penn's runs being unearned. With a
game under their belts, they traveled to Plum and whipped
them by the score of 9-3 with Bill Hodgkinson gaining the vic-
tory. Playing at Trafford they went down to defeat by the score
of 3-2, two of Trafford's runs being unearned. Their next home
game, against Franklin Township, proved more favorable to
Gateway rooters. Aided by a 3-run 7th inning, the Gators won,
6-5. Playing at home they next won over Plum again, this time
4-3. Gateway's third defeat came at the hands of Trafford, the
eventual winner of the section, 4-2. They played their return
game with Penn Claridge away and were once more taken to
defeat, 7-3. Closing out the season, the t'Golden Gators" visited
Franklin Township and were downed, 8-3. The season record
stood at 3 victories and 5 losses. This was a surprising beginning
for baseball at Gateway.

An indispensable part of the
functions of any high school are
activities. For in our democratic
reserve time for social training
in addition to a
the fact that we were learning,
we students of
tended in great numbers many
activities that were held
throughout the year. The warm
aura, which was so prevalent at
the first social events of fifty-
nine, served as an incentive for
others to attend and as a result
attendance increased. Those
who attended, realized a new
facet of Gateway, the "heart" of
our schools. We sincerely hope
that in the years to come, more
social events can be enjoyed
with the same enthusiasm that
was found in fifty-nine.

The Junior Class of 1959 had the distinct honor and privilege of
performing in the first class play at Gateway. Starting practice on Feb-
ruary 20, the cast worked every day after school and on Saturdays till
the day of the play.
"Our Hearts Were Young and Gay" is a three act play dramatized by
Jean Kerr from the book by Cornelia Otis Skinner and Emily Kim-
brough. The play retells the actual adventures of two young American
girls on an European trip. The voyage really took place during the
summer of 1923. Although most of the characters and incidents were
extremely funny, they were authentic. Cornelia wanted to be an actress
so she arranged to take lessons from a famous French actor. Emily, her
roommate who was interested only in men, worried about the boat
sinking. The girls were nineteen and spent a hilarious summer coping
with anything from "measles" to "bedbugs." All their zany acquaint-
ances added to the humor of the play.
The favorable comments about the play proved the Junior Class set
a pace which will be challenging to all.

The First few weeks of January were
busy ones for the three finalists in our
March of Dimes Princess Campaign.
Sue Senft, Paulette Steenson, and Carol
Sheaf were selected from twenty-eight
candidates representing each homeroom.
The campaign managers for our lovely
finalists were Dan Shuckers, Sandy
Stroschein, and Barry Muir respectively.
During the contest that followed, fancy
containers were distributed in the home-
rooms and in the cafeteria and each
manager kept an account of the money
that was collected. Colorful posters were
placed in the hallways and daily an-
nouncements were made pertaining to
the drive. When the campaign drew to
a close, we were very happy to announce
our senior class candidate, Carol Sheaf,
as Gateway's representative in future
competition. On january 17, 1959, Carol
appeared on Jay Michael's Band Stand
accompanied by her manager, Barry
Muir, and our principal, Mr. Eugene B.
Yarnel. Carol modeled lovely fashions
along with nine other girls representing
district schools. As a result of the entire
campaign, Gateway High School con-
tributed S656.60 to the March of Dimes
which will be used to promote the
health and happiness of others.

On May 16, hundreds of students attended Gateway's first
annual school picnic held at Kennywood Park. The afternoon
was sunny and welcomed the crowd to a day of fun and excite-
ment. Both young and old enjoyed the fluffy cotton candy and
tasty hot dogs available throughout the park. A new ride called
the 'Crazy Orbit' gained many enthusiastic passengers during
the course of the day. By evening the weather had become
rather cool and dark clouds began to gather overhead. The
crowd dispersed as the rain started to fall and students left for
home, tired, but happy with the day's events.

Brother Goose, an exciting and hilarious
three-act comedy by William Davidson, was
presented by the senior class on May 8.
The opening of the curtain revealed the
rather disheveled living room of the Adams'
residence, the home of Jeff Adams CBrother
Goosey and his orphaned brother and two sis-
ters for whom he was solely responsible. A
rather personable, struggling young architect,
Mr. Adams found his problems increasing by
leaps and bounds when Wes became enamored
of a Southern Belle, Carol, attempted to win a
Chrysler in a cereal contest, and Hyacinth, a
ten-year old, developed a passion for playing
football. With the arrival of Peggy Winkel, an
attractive hosiery saleswoman who consented to
turn to housekeeping, the problems of the
Adams' family began to resolve themselves. The
humorous incidents resulted finally in jeff's
recognition of Peggy's feminine charms, and all
