I have been wondering whether the boys
and girls in our high school today will keep
America the land of golden opportunity. I be-
lieve that many of our boys and girls of today
are expecting to get a high school education with
Very little effort on their part. I feel that in
this world of ours we need more young men and
women who will work harder than ever when
they get out in life's work.
It is often said, HYou cannot get something
for nothing." Those are true words. Young
people cannot get an education without exert-
ing much effort while they are in high school.
We are moving forward very fast in this
land of opportunity in which we live. Our
OUR HIGH SCHOOL
Daniel B. Swaney
young people should mold and build character,
and develop good study habits so that they may
cope with our world problems. I am more con-
scious about our world problems, and I wonder
if our young people of today will help to guide
our country in building world peace.
The men and women of America have never
had so many world problems to cope with, as
they have today. I believe you can see now why
I am stressing that boys and girls in our high
schools should take advantage of their high
school training and get the most out of their
high school days. America needs more young
people with better training for our future.

Consideration for the hest interests of all
is the watchword of hoard of educationfcon-
sideration for school children, parents, tax-
payers and all others interested in the wel-
fare of the community.
Each school child presents its own proh-
lexus for consideration and for individual at-
tention. Different children present different
educational prohlems, and each child's proh-
lems must he understood and given special,
individualized attention. Teachers are quick
to realize the prohlems of each child and to
render help 'to each child in solving its own
Parents of school children must he given
consideration in every phase of the child's
education. Parents are vitally' interested in
the welfare of the child in the home and in
the school. The greatest good for the child
will result where there is close cooperation
hetween the home and the school. Parents
direct the home activities of the pupil and
the teachers direct the school activities. Con-
flicts hetween the home and school authorities
should he avoided after careful consideration.
Consideration hy the hoard is due every
taxpayer. This means that the hoard must
provide good schools and at the same time
practice economy, so that taxpayers will not
he hurdened with unnecessary taxes. School
costs have increased and reached their high-
est peak. School taxes must he levied to meet
the increasing costs, hut taxes will he held to
a minimum out of consideration for the tax-
Consideration for thc wclfare of thc com-
munity involves an cducated citizenry intelli-
gently eontrihuting to the common good. The

ive the class of '50 entered Georges High
School on Septemher 3, 1946 as energetic, yet
hewildered Freshmen, 145 in numher. The
highlight of this year was our first class party
which was held in our gymnasium. It was
difficult to adjust ourselves to the new rou-
tine of High School, hut as the year came to
a close, we proved successful in spite of all
As Sophomores, the following year, we were
more alnhitious and had much more confi-
dence. Many contrihutions were lnade to the
Sports, Field hy our class. We were at this
time huilding a team which would lead us to
victory in the future. Thus, another year was
By the time we had claimed the title of
Juniors, our class had greatly decreased in
numher. lt was during this year that a few of
our hoys entered the service of Uncle Sam.
Une of our higgest thrills of the year was our
victory over South Union's football team.
:gf 13 :gt
This was tht- first time we had defeated them
in six years. Gradually the Juniors took part
in the assemhlies. 'We were then entering
the home stretch.
Our last year rolled around, hut only too
soon, with only l05 left to graduate. Never
to he forgotten are the discussions in P. D.
Class, the laughter and singing in the halls,
the haskethall and foothall games, and the hi-
weekly assemhly programs. Witll a feeling of
satisfaction, we leave the portals of this High
School into a new and strange world to shift
As we leave our High School, we find the
same hewildered feeling again evident. But
with the training we have had, We will soon
overcome it to hccome successful in our

It was a niost memorable day when the
Freshman Class entered Georges last Septem-
ber. There were one hundred forty excited,
bewildered, and awe-stricken freshman. We
began to realize that the future we molded
for ourselves depended more on the success-
ful manner in which we applied and equipped
ourselves in our various courses of study and
We soon realized that though Georges is
not as large as some city high schools, it is
well equipped in that it offers excellent
courses taught by a fine and instructive facul-
ty. Our athletic field, gymnasium, auditor-
ium, and classrooms are all spacious and
modern. Our home economics department
offers wonderful opportunities for 'those who
wish to continue work Lin that field.
After a short time we held a class meeting
and class officers were elected. Blue and gold
were selected as the class colors, the vellow
rose was selected as our class flower. Anyone

Football is a sport which develops young
men in many ways. It builds character which,
without a doubt, is one of the greatest assets
for meaningful participation in our democra-
tic society. Without character, an individual
is much like a ship without a rudder that
can steer for no definite goal, but wallows
hopelessly buffeted by every Wave of inde-
cisive action. Football also serves to build a
sound body which in turn serves to house a
sound and intelligent mind. Certainly any
major sport under proper supervision will
serve to develop greater coordination. One
may ask how this will equip for adult living.
The above mentioned attribute would serve
one well as a worker in our present mass pro-
duction schenie of industry. Football also
teaches a boy to give and take which fits him
to take his place in adult society. ,If a boy
can show positive adaptation to small tasks he
is assigned on the gridiron, he will be better
equipped to carry on his duties as an adult in
his chosen way of life. It serves to develop
comradship and a greater respect for oneis
fellowman. Since the very core of any athle-
tic team is teamwork, this trait thereby teach-
es one to blend his efforts with his co-worker
for the accomplishment of a common goal and
a common good of all concern.

ln comparison with the past few years,
haskethall at Georges has greatly improved.
,loc Good, former athlete of Duquesne, suc-
ceeded ,lohn Rohha as coach after the 1atter
resigned. This year the team finished in
third place, the highest position a Georges
team has occupied for some time. Witll 'the
help of two seniors, Tom Marano and Joseph
Juriga, two juniors, John ,lacohs and john
Barnette, and Rohert Kopetsky, a sophomore,
Mr. Good was able to mold a fairly good team.
The haskethall team for tho next year
holds a promising future, since most of the
1949-50 team was composed of under-class
nlen. Witll a little co-operation and hard
work from the lroys, and the support of the
directors, faculty, students, and fans, coach
Good will surely have winning teams in the
years 'io follow.

Baseball is one of our first nationally known sports
that has turned tl1e World Topsy-Turvy in its craze to satis-
fy the enormous appetite of its public. Time spent on base-
ball is not wasted as it builds character, sportsmanship, and
co-operation as well as a sound body and a sound mind.
Character, in its application of the individual and how he
reacts toward othersg sportsmanship, each member sharing
with each other its wins or its lossesg and co-operation, the
team working as a unit to defeat any opposition-all these
characteristics of good baseball make for good citizens and
leaders in America.
Georges hasn't won many laurels in baseball, but our
boys have played the game for its sheer joy. Several found
their way into Sandlot Teams and have performed well.
The 1950 team is composed of a group of hustlers and it
remains for time to tell of their results-champions! minor
or major league material! Who knows?

THE YEARBOOK RECORDS YOUR SCHOOL YEAR
We, the mcmhers of the Georgian Staff,
l1ave endeavored to make this year's edition
of the Georgian the finest possihlc. Nve sin-
cerely hope that you are well pleased.
Our yearhook preserves many fond
friendships and memorahle evcnts which we
will always cherish in our storehouse of me-
mories in the passing years. We will he plea-
santly reminded of the painstaking efforts
that have heen exerted to prepare us intel-
lectually, physically, spiritually, and morally,
to successfully meander through the path of
life. Wle humhly hope that this annual will
appear as n1ucl1 a part of Georges as each of

us has heen, and will serve as a guilding hea-
con to those who follow our course.
The complexity of our ever-changing
world is always a constant challenge to each
of us to he mentally alert. Therefore, we
must endeavor to take full advantage of the
fine facilities at our disposal here. We must
hecome good, conscientious citizens, ready
and ahle to take our places in society.
The staff is especially grateful to our
principal, Daniel B. Swaney, and to our facul-
ty advisors for the constructive guidance they
have given us in the preparation of this l950
issue of the Georgian.

The Student Council is the governing hody of the student mcmhers.
This council was organized at Georges Township High School in 1929 to
develop student self-government and the training necessary for good
citizenship. This organization tends to create in the minds of the stu-
dent methods of gaining success hy being honest, loyal, courteous, and
cheerful, through clean speech, clean hahits, and good manners.
Each home room selects a memher who represents the111 in the Stu-
dent Council. The hi-monthly meetings consist largely of discussing
prohlems that arise in the school. Some of which are the punishment of
disohedient students, and reporting all who deface school property. Mie-
tllods for improving school conditions, such as placing a large mirror in
each of the rest rooms, how to use the money in the ucounciln treasury,
and how to raise funds for different cluhs are also dehated.
To puhlish anew the 'Gtleorges Forecast" is an aim not yet reached.
This puhlication ceased hccause of the paper shortage during the last
war. The council also striving to increase interest in organizing new
cluhs and reviving old ones.
The l949-50 Student Council has contrihuted much to school acti-
vities. A stand for rcfreshlnents supply foothall fans with hot dogs,
coffee, candy, ice-cream, and potato chips.
Proceeds from noon dances and Mtag-daysw are used to huy chcer-
leaderls uniforms, sweaters, and letters for sports and music awards.

The ever popular swing hand of Georges Township High School, as
directed hy lVlr. Nelson Gaal, is made up of nine students. Feeling that
music should he included in scho-ol life, you can always depend on them
for the hest in entertainment.
This active group, known as Wfhe Rhythm Kidsi' pcrl'orms for many
assembly programs and noon dances. These dances are held once a week
in our gymnasium, enjoyed hy all who show their appreciation hy good
attendance. The tunes consist of hoth popular numhcrs and polka
The instruments used in a hand also play an important factor in
ohtaining excellent music. Therefore, these musicians have chosen the
following to make their's the hestg the clarinet, saxophone, trumpet,
piano, sliding trolnhone, and drums.
Besides having the instruments, you must he ahlc to play them well,
which requires practice. These students sacrifice their own time and
have no complaints even when an unexpected rehearsal is called. This
is their secret for their ahility to play well.
Patience and responsihility must he taken into consideration in prc-
paring young people for the music World. So we give our thanks to Wir.
Gaal, and we hope he will ever continue his great work, as this kind ol
amusement plays an important part in cvcryoncis life.

The National Honor Society is an organization of which many stu-
dents would like to be a member. In November l6, 1925, the National
Honor Society was started at Georges, when a charter was granted by the
National Council of the National Honor Society.
To be a member of this organization, a student must have an average
of eighty-eight percent. A vote is cast by each teacher and by the old
111e111bers of the society. The new members are initiated into the so-
ciety by a candlelight ceremony. The colors, blue and gold, are dis-
played with ribbons tied to the candles. The pin worn by the members
is an emblem of the Keystone with a flaming torch.
The meetings of tl1e National Honor Society, wl1icl1 a1'e held on the
second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, are begun with the pledge
of the society.
The "Christmas Tree Fund" which was raised this year was sponsor-
cd by the National Honor Society. The money that was collected bought
a Christmas Tree and decorations. It was on display in the center of the
stage during the Christmas season.
The members chosen at the beginning of the senior year were: E.
li. Winfrey, Gladys Vcrbus, John Morawa, Myrna Sutton, Dolores Gower,
and Patricia Smith.
The officers elected were: President, Geraldine Metz, Vice Presi-
dent, Catherine Hench, Secretary, Dolores Ann Hudockg Treasurer,

of Georges High came into existence. The idea had heen a long contem-
plated one, hut prior to this time had failed to materialize.

ll10I'C, Junior, and Senior classes. After careful speculation, fifty 'talent-
ed girls were chosen. During the course of six weeks the I1llll1ll0l' lnount-
