SENIOR PROM, 'Twas the twentieth of June And throughout each house- Each maiden was busy, busy as a mouse. The colorful gowns were put on with much care Q In hopes that the esoort soon would be there. Ma in her apron and Pa in 'his best Were just settling down for a nice evening rest. When suddenly outside there arose suich a clatter, I sprang from my chair to find out the matter. There standing straight and looking "just so" Was the handsome but awkward blushing young beau. His flowers were placed in a fair gentle hand And the long ride started for Bob Masons swing band. From the midst of the city to the edge of the town To the Wildwood Country Club the gang was bound. Then there was gossip and dancing and laughter, Which resounded to the top of every rafter. . Till the break Io-f the day that was dawning The tired ones, eager for sleep, began yawning. So the wraps were brought out And we left with a shout, Toodeloo to all and to all a good-night. fWith apologies to Eugene Field by Mary Heimbuecherj Page Nine 'rdf , li- 1 it - .1 5 .....

'fx- 4 THE MILLVALEAN Page Ten ALDINGER, WALTER "Walt" General Course, Class Basketball. Amiable, cooperative, easy-going-all three blend together in forming Walt Aldinger. Not the least important of his assets is Wzlt's unusual laugh. Practically everyone has heard those jolly hearty peals of laughter at one time or another. Although he doesn't take his school-work too seriously Walt has won the friendship of many of his teachers and fellow students. AUTH, KATHRYN "Kathy" Honor Graduate, Commercial Course Girls' Chorus, Rifle Club, Crafts Club, Baton Club, Girls' Athletic Club, Senior Play, Minstrel Show, Tap Class, Millvalean Staff, Chieftain Staff, Class Basketball. ! There's never a dull moment when Kathy's around, for she is a carefree lovable girl who can always think of something witty. She can readily boast being the best read Senior. Since she expresses frankly her opinions and feelings on all subjects, she has become an advisor to many of her classmates. BAUER, ALVIN A Honor Graduate, Commercial Course, Sec- retary of Freshman Class, Vice President of Sophomore Class, Chieftain Staff, Candy Seller, Rifle Club, Girls' Chorus, Senior Play, Millvalean Staff. This petite miss is gifted with natural curly hair and a dazzling smile. She is small in stature and sweet in disposition. Her natural bri htness is valuable to any girl. Alvina is lovable and liked by all. proving the fact that good things do come in small packages. BEARL, MARGARET "Margie" General Course, Vice President of Crafts Club, Girls' Athletic Club, Millvalean Salesman. Not a sweeter or jollier person can be found in our class than "Margie", Her determination in her art work will probably lead her to a successful career. Although she only came into our midst in her Junior year, she can claim many of her classmates as admiring friends. BENDER, EDWARD "Speed" General Course, Class Basketball, Class Mushball, Football, Hi-Y, Millvalean Sales- man, Stage Manager for Senior Play, Chieftain Staff, Wrestling. "Variety is the spice of life" must be "Speed's" motto for he seems to have a new girl friend for every month of the year. From latest reports, it appears that Bd's present heart-throb comes from Shaler. However, "Speed" gets along equally well with the fellows and he can usually be found pulling a gag on one of his friends. BENDER, IRENE "Renee" Commercial Course, Secretary of Crafts Club, Millvalean Staff. Irene lends her enthusiastic support to indoor as well as outdoor activities, and her independent spirit makes her stand out in any group. The character traits of politeness and neatness make her a perfect lady while the age old habit of blushing adds to her charm. BERGMAN, LOIS "Bug" Commercial Course, Rifle Club, Baton Club, Crafts Club, Millvalean Staff, Camera Club. Gondlnaturcd Lois' thoroughness and alertness are roven facts in bookkeeping class. She attends football and basket- ball games with that same thoroughness, never missing one. Lois knits and collects autographs of famous people for diversion, but her real interest, we are told, lies in Ohio, where Mickey resides. BERNEBERG, MILDRED "Millie" Commercial Course, Tap Class, Senior Play, Minstrel, Girls' Chorus, Girls' Ath- letic Club, Millvalean Staff, Assembly Programs. Right now "Milly" is trying to become a cook, and a very pleasing one she makes with her red curls and jolly attitudc. "Milly" has made many of her friends happy this fall by presenting them with mittens she had knitted. Not only has she shown us how well she can sew, but also how well she can act. BERTRAM, DOROTHY "Dottie" Honor Graduate, Commercial Course, Rifle Club, Band, Orchestra, Crafts Club, Chief- tain Staif, Class Basketball, Millvalean Staff, South Westem P.S.M.A. Band 1940. "Dot", who never lacks partners. is probably happiest when "jitterbugging" to the music of Glen Miller or dancing a smooth waltz to thc melodic strains of Wayne King. Dot is an ardent follower of all school activities as well as an added attraction to the school band, for she has won the honor of being the first to play the school's bell-lyrc. BIERY, JACK "Butch" Academnic Course, Band, Orchestra, Presi- dent of Senior Class, Vice President of Hi-Y, President of Rifle Club, Chieftain Staff, Vice President of Junior Class, Senior Play Prompter, Millvalean Staif. Jack, our Senior president, is the idol of the weaker sex. The best-dressed Senior, he is an industrious student, well mannered and pleasant, and has been described as the "ideal American boy." Jack finds most delight in music and photography, being especially fond of Glen Miller's recordings. BOETTCHER, RALPH Honor Graduate, Commercial Course, Senior Play, Forum Club 1938, Millvalean Staff, Chieftain Staff. Although he appears serious to outsiders, Ralplfs class- mates now that he is the possessor of a keen sense of humor. This he has proven many times with his clever English themes and witty remarks in Economics. A flair for acting was also prominently displayed by Ralph with las unforgettable portrayal of "Father" in the Senior ay. BRAUN, ROBERT "Wimp" General Course, Class Mushball. If you hear the latest joke being related and glance around, nine times out of ten you will find the narrator to be Bob. Wit and humor are the two predominating traits in his m.a.kc'up. To many people Bob may appear quiet, shy, and unassuming, but his classmates know him as he really is-a carefree, amusing, likeable chap. NINETEEN HUNDRED FORTY Page Eleven THE MILLVALEAN l Page Twelve CANONICO, JOSEPH "joe" General Course, Varsity Basketball, Varsity Club, Orchestra, Class Basketball, Class Mushball, Boxing. Joe Canonico, "Canoe" to his pals, has always been full of fun and laughter. Even though joe is inclined to bc carefree, he has proven his worth on the basketball court with his agile footfwork and those long shots so well' known io the spectators. Joe's jolly manner has been the chief reason for his popularity with all his classmates, hoth "guys" and "gals." COLVILLE, MARGARET "Margie" Honor Graduate, Commercial Course, Tap Class, Assembly Program, Girls' Chorus, Chieftain Staff, Millvalean Staif, Library Assistant, Minstrel, Rifle Club, Crafts Club.

Despite her many outside interests, "Marie" has maintained a hi h scholastic record and will always be remembered Ear her old' fashioned, but everfcharming, blushes when she recited in front of the room. DERRINGER, ROBERT "Borp" General Course, Class Basketball, Mush- ball, Boxing, Varsity Club, Hi-Y, Varsity Football, Millvalean Staff. Genial, happy'go'lucky "'Borp" has been seen with so many different girls that it is impossible to point out his real heart-throb. Bob was a star guard on the football team for two seasons, noted for his speed and highfgrade defensive work. Although he is quite talkative. "Burp" is never boisterous or impolite, but instead, he is a good- natured boy with a cheery outlook on life. DILLMAN, BETTY ANN "Dil" General Course, Baton Club, Girls' Chorus, Rifle Club, Millvalean Staff, Dramatic Club, Senior Play, Chieftain Staff. As a dark, vivacious brunette, "Dil" ranks high in the opinions of her classmates. She participates in all the school activities and we are happy to say that she added a bit of color to our band as a majorette. She and her friend "Zi" are inseparable companions. DITMORE, RUTH "Ruthie" Commercial Course, Riile Club, Girls' Chorus, Minstrel, Millvalean Salesman. A talkative and jolly senior is Ruth. A neatly dressed Hgure and blond hair make hcr the ideal school girl. She is friendly to all and is willing and able to giggle at all times. She is a member of the trio of Alvina, Cel, and Ruth.

DOTTERWEICH, RICHARD "Dick" General Course, Rifle Club, Class Mush- ball, Band, Orchestra, Minstrel Orchestra. "Dick" is well-known as an accomplished pianist, Hunt' ing is another one of his occupations and "Dick" proved he could "bring home the bacon" by slaying a large deer during his junior year, He takes no back seat in class' work, especially in P.O.D. where his carefully selected arguments provide many an interesting class discussion. EICHLER, ROBERT "Ike" Comme:cial Course, Forum Club 1938, Dramatic Club, Class Basketball, Senior Play. Since hc is wcllfinformed nn politics and presentfdav affairs, Bob is fond of P.O.D. where his clearlywzxpressed opinions never fail to start an argument. It is then thai Bob is in his glory.

GARFINKEL, SIDNEY "Sid" General Course, Varsity Football 1937, Class Basketball, Class Boxing, Class Mush- ba .

"Lu" must have had a second helping when personality was handed out. She fairly shines wherever scholastic honors are concerned. To top her high school career off with a bang, she was chosen by her fellow students for the Merit Parade and was elected editor of the Millvalean. HOAK, EDNA "Eddie" Commercial Course, Baton Club, Rifle Club, Crafts Club, Drum Major, Band Secretary, Millvalean Staff. Like cake without frosting, so our band would lack that certain touch without our high stepping, trim figured drum major, Edna. Her dark complexion and black hair make her outstanding and attractive in her red and white uniform as she struts through the town twirling her baton. Edna's sophistication has brought her the respect and admiration of her fellow students. HOAK, SAM "Bloody" General Course, Millvalean Staff, Class Basketball, Football, Basketball Manager, Varsity Club, Hi-Y, Class Mushball, Senior Play, All-District Football League, Chieftain Staff. They say that dynamite comes in small packages. and this is especially true of "Sam" for he proved to be a dangerous foe as a lineman on the football squad. "Sam" is very popular and acceptable to the "gals" of Millvale High, and it could be this attraction which draws so many of them to the local ice-cream parlor where "Sam" clerks. HORTON, ROBERT "Lefty" General Course, Varsity Football, Class Mushball, Class Boxing. "Bob" has been responsible for more hearty laughs than any other boy about the school.

NINETEEN HUNDRED FORTY Page Fifteen THE MILLVALEAN Page Sixteen LACHE, KARL "Lock" General Course. For a quartet of years, Karl, one of the fairest Seniors, has been coming 'round the mountain, but none of the "city women" have succeeded in winning his heart. Instead, Karl's bashfulness creeps out in a deep red hue which covers his face when the girls surround him. Timidity is thrown to the winds, however. when "Lock" begins to exercise his vocal chords with some of his cronies at lunch time. LANG, BERNICE "Porkey" Commercial Course, Millvalean Salesman. Curls! Curls! Everywhere! "Porkey's" here with her "Shirley Temple" hairfdo.

Contrary to the adage "Silence is Golden", this girl is a great talker-interesting too. LANG, NORMAN "Chick" Commercial Course, Band, Orchestra, Millvalean Staff.

MAIRE, IRMA "Inn" Commercial Course, Chieftain Staff, Girls' Chorus, Camera Club, Rifle Club, Crafts Club, Millvalean Staff.

MAN SKI, ALICE High Honor Graduate, Academic Course, Senior Play, Senior Editor of Millvalean, Artist for Band Concert and Minstrel Posters. Alice has led hcr class in scholastic honors for four years. The combined qualities ot ..ttractive..ess, ability, and a charming personality should take her far along the road ro success.

Etta Mae is a Senior with a quiet manner but a jolly, readyffor-anything nature. Beneath her quiet disguise lies a funsloving attitude which she has shown quite frequently at Senior Play rehearsals. Her main hobby, it seems, is operating the mimeograph machine which she does quite eflicicntly for the school newspaper. MOHR, VIVIAN "Viv" High Honor Graduate, Commercial Course, Millvalean Staff, Library Assistant, Chief- tain Staff, Senior Play. "Viv" is one of thosc girls whose chief object in life is making others hapcpy.

A dimpled smile and pleasant chatter are her outstanding characteristics.

PALARZI, FLORA "Flo" Commercial Course, Girls' Athletic Club, Girls' Chorus, Rifle Club, Minstrel, Mill- valean Salesman. Flora is always surrounded by members of the opposite sex who take advantage of her good nature by ever- lastingly teasing her. At football and basketball games, she is a constant inspiration to the players and hardly ever misses a match. PAVKOVICH, ANN "Annie" High Honor Graduate, Commercial Course, Forum Club 1938, Senior Play, Class Basketball, Girls' Athletic Club, Chieftain Staff, Millvalean Staff. "Tops in Typing" is Ann's cherished title, won after hours of pecking at a typewriter. Because of her de- pendability, teachers entrust confidential tasks such as tests ro Ann's discreet nature. This trait, no doubt, will lead her to a worthfwhile position in later life. PFISCHNER, PAUL "Pep" Academic Course, Band, Orchestra, Ride Club, Camera Club, President of Junior Class, South Westem P.S.M.A. Band 1940, All-County Orchestra, I-Ii-Y Club, Mill- valean Staff, Senior Play, Vice President of Senior Class, Crafts Club.

Bob has been described as "most likely to succeed." and we feel that he will because he is reliable, coopera- tive, and business-like.

I 950-FUTU RESQUE As I boarded the M.H.Sr. transport plane at the County Airport, I was surprised to see Robert Kroner and Warren Wenner enter the pilot's cabin. Cecelia Wagner and Dorothy Bertram, the hostesses, told me they were the best pilots on the line and had won many honors in flying. Since I had about fifteen minutes before leaving Pittsburgh, I decided to have ra chat with Cecelia and ask her about our former classmates. But Cecelia interrupted, "Anne Pavkovich, I thought you were afraid :of planes. Now you're flying to New York. What for?" "Well, I'm going up to attend a special meeting of the managers of the company I work for. You know, Robert Harkins is the president of this organiziar tion and Wallace Miller is the vicefpresident while Frank Svach and a few others are his managers in different parts of the country. But tell me what you know." "Well, this man entering the plane is Professor Ralph Boettcher. He's Math teacher at the same university where Bill Schiefelbein teaches "bugology" and- But Cecelia was cut off because the plane was filled with "Oh's" and "Ah's" as Kathryn Hunter, the famous movie star, entered the plane. She was followed by her staff: Dorothy Steininger, secretary, and Bernard Flowers, press agent. I thought Kate wouldn't recognize me but she did and immediately came over to talk over old times. But I soon had her telling me about Hollywood and I was surprised to find the number of our class that had 'become famous in Hollywood. Kathryn Auth was writing scenarios and Vivian Mohr, dialogue. All this time Robert Pfischner has been enjoying success with his autognaphs which he collected early in the thirties. iMarie Kovacic was building a career anound herself with her acting, while Edna I-Ioak has won the Academy Award for her great -performances and Viola Schmitt's talpfdancing has brought her much praise and ovation. "But enough about Hollywood, Anne. How about Millvale?" Kathryn asked "Why, haven't you heard? Eddie Ruzomberka is coach at Millvale High and Paul Pfischner is Millvale's most popular doctor. His cousin, Bill Pfischner, is a famous lvaiwyer in Pittsburgh and Allen Kremmel -is an absentfminded Professor at Columbia University. And do you know that Mary Sebetich is the girls' basketball coach at the Mt. Troy Recreational Center? Oh! But we're taking off. I'll see you later, Kathryn. And with that I walked to the main cabin for my trip to New York. As I left the plane, I got into a cab and headed for the Waldorf Astoria. To my amazement I found that Sammy Hoak was chief chef and Eugene Riley had his orchestra on the top floor while Morris Sadwick was thrilling the crowd with his nimble fingers on the piano. Meanwhile, in the lobby, Irma Maire had her desk in a secluded corner with a sign :above it which said, "Public Secretary". Page Twenty-five THE MILLVALEAN All in all it was a day of discoveries for me, but more was coming because I tuned in the radio and heard Elizabeth Klug give some "household hints", while her dietitians, Etta Mae Mohr and Lois Bergman, aided her. After this I saw Thelma Rheam face me is-n the television screen for she was demonstrating ia face cream for an attractive complexion. Soon after that, I turned to the paper and saw Michael Guido's and Stan Siranovich's pictures on the first page. Mike has just won the National Bowling Championship and Stan was lightfheavyweight champion and it certainly did my heart good to see "Millvale" under the pictures. On the other side of the page was a picture of Dan McCauley dressed in the Pittsburgh Pirate's uniform as he hit the home run that won the World Series. All these discoveries were too much for me and I crawled into my bed for a good night's rest. The next day I awoke bright and early to do some shopping. I strolled down Fifth Avenue and saw a large sign which prominently displayed hats. I walked into the shop and the first person I saw was Mildred Berneberg, who was the pro-prietress and Lavina Schafer, her assistant. They ran a complete clothing shop with models for everything. Alvina Bauer modeled shoes, Margaret Colville wore hats, Ruth Ditmore was in the dress department, Betty Ann Dillman was in the glove department and Betty Zeilfelder was modeling coiffures. I asked Mildred about everyone in New York and I was surprised to hear that jimmy Donaldson was New Yorkis popular artist and Marie Kaib was his favorite model. jack Biery was publishing a book on etiquette and Robert Derringer was doing the printing. Eddie Bender was one of the best referees in the country and Richard Dotterweich was one of the top sports writers. Sidney Garfinkel wlas the noted radio commentator on sports while Henry Erk was holding down his position as the circulation manager. But I couldn't stay any longer, so I left for Radio City to see some of the broadcasts. As I entered the building, I ncticed that a new broadcasting studio was being built. Much to my surprise and amazement, I learned that Walter Aldinger was chief architect. The many famous personages from Millvale in Radio City amazed me. There was Lucille Heimbuecher who was publicity director of a large firm, William Koza was the hero in one of the daytime serials and Bernice Lang was the heroine. Elizabeth Wilhoit was the "Singing Lady" and Walter Kennedy was running for the governorship of New York and gave many speeches over the radio. But suddenly we turned to the sports world and I soon discovered that Joe Canonico was winning honors in basketbwall and Robert Weber was "mowing down" all players on the proffootball field. But Walt was then called by Karl Lache, the backer of his programs, and Robert Horton, this gag'man, so I unwillingly left. But I didn't go far for right across the street was the public library where I found Armella Yochum as reference librarian and Irene Bender was her assistant. Margaret Bearl was in the children's book department and Alice Manski was among the encyclopedias locking for an assignment to give her junior English students. I walked on to the third floor and there I met Marion Robinson giving a lecture on clothes and using Catherine Wukits as her model. Since Catherine could not be without Mary Marlovits, Mary was making the dresses that Catherine was misdeling. As the lecture came to an end, I again made my way to the street and prepared to view some more New York sights. As I was jostling through the crowd on Fifth Avenue, a voice cried out, "And where do you think you're going?" The voice sounded so familiar I turned around and saw the blue uniform and smiling face of Donald Russell. Donald was so taken aback at seeing me that he didn't know what to do. But he soon "came to" and we started chatting. He informed me that just a block down, I would find Robert Wellinger working at Tiffany's Jewelry Store and two blocks down I would hear Norman Lang's violin as he played for the concert goers and still further down, I would find Robert Eichler, that patriotic American, arguing with a Communist soapfbox speaker. Well, I thanked Donald, and hurried down the street. As I was about to enter Tiifany's, a man with grayfblack hair and a serious face was coming out. Page Twenty-six IF YOU WANT TO KNOW SEE NINETEEN HUNDRED FORTY It proved to be jack Osteritter on his way to Rockefeller Center where he and Thomas Schrass were chemists. He a'lso told me about some of our 1940 Seniors. jeanne Swanson was a nurse at Bellevue Hospital and Marian Ritchie was the librarian there. Marie Schmeltz was modeling clothes as was jean Schmitt and Elmer Voit was bookkeeper at Tiffany's. But he had to hurry to work and then he came back and said, "You know, Flora Palarzi is a night club singer and Uh! Can she sing! Yes, she can really sing. fthoughtfullyj Well, goodbye until I see you again." "Goodbye, Jack," I answered and with that I entered Tiifany's. There on the counter stood a picture of Norma Ziegler displaying rings on a beautiful pair of hands. But I oculdn't stay in New York much longer, so I left for the airport to board the M.H.S. plane for home. There I mfet Alice Moedinger and Anne Murslack as hostesses and Robert Braun as pilot.

NICKEL DANCES Jitterbugs were in their glmo-ry as the school's P.A. system floated the sweet and swing recorded music of favorite dance bands around the gym, at the popular nickel dances during noon hour and after school. There the "doggie" was much in evidence, and caused our gay young blades to whirl and twirl with the alacrity of professional jugglers.

W A Page Thirty-four W 4 - F 'wg 'vm NWETEEN HUNDRED FORTY THE TWELFTH MILLVALEAN During the last days of their Junior year, the class of '40 received a mimeo- graphed list of important Millvalean staff positions and were requested to cast their ballots for the persons of their choice. When the votes were counted, it was announced that Lucille Heimbuecher had been chosen EditorfinfChief and Robert Pischner, Business Manager. Then, from the rest of the ballots came the names of the persons chosen as heads of various sections. To Alice Manski went the important task of supervising and directing all senior Millvalean material. One of her assistants, Anne Pavkovich, was placed in charge of senior features. She in turn was aided by Edna Hoak, Alvina Bauer, and Jack Biery. Henry Erk, with his assistants, Wallace Miller, Ralph Boettcher, and Dan McCauley, turned out the writeups beside each senior boy's picture, while Kathryn Auth with her staff-Marian Ritchie, Mary Marlovits, and Anne Murslack-wrote those of the girls. Each senior's activities throughiout his high school career were recorded beside the pictures by Etta Mae Mohr and Mildred Berneberg and the secrecy of the senior census was carefully guarded by Margaret Colville and Marie Schmeltz. Because of the thoroughness and accuracy required in underclassmen writeups, Vivian Mohr, with the helpful suggestions of English teachers, placed Thelma Rava, Ruth Haugh, and Mary Heimbuecher in charge of the interesting junior feature. Edythe Sauter, Virginia Heim-buecher, and Edith Miller wrote the clever Sophomore article and Catherine Pavkovivch, Armella Ulrich and Anna Mae Kofmehl devised the Freshman writeup. In charge of school activities writeups was Marie Kaib who capably directed the writings of Norman Lang, musical activities, Bette Zeilfelder, social affairsg and Marion Robinson, club writeups. When it was announced that Edward Ruzomberka was head 'cf the Athletic section, everyone knew a wise -choice had been made, for Ed was a star athlete himself. Warren Wenner and Sam Hoak assisted with the football writeups, Frank Svach and Robert Derringer with the basketball, while Mary Sebetich recorded the activities of the girls' class basketball teams. Paul Pfischner's hobby stood him in good stead when he learned of his position as photo-graphy editor. His able assistants were Betty Ann Dillman in charge of senior pictures, Allen Kremmel, group pisctures, and William Koza, small informals. jimmy Donaldson supervised the artistry of the yearbook, .and Elmer Voit controlled the money of the annual through his position of treasurer. To get all the material in a readable condition, these efficient typists were appointed-Armella Yochum, Elizabeth Klug, Bill Pfischner, Irma Maire, Lois Bergman, Elizabeth Wilhoit, Norma Ziegler, and Jean Schmitt. For the untiring energy displayed by Mrs. Keller and Miss Bargman and the whole Senior Play casts in raising funds as well as providing excellent entertain' ment, we express our deepffelt appreciation. To Miss Johnston, the whole Senior class as well as the staff extend their wholefhearted gratitude for her unselfish cooperation and her ability to make the class realize the importance of pulling together. We also express our thanks to the rest of the faculty for the help and advice so generously given in time of need.

PENNSYLVANIA SCHOOL MUSIC ASSOCIATION The South Western P.S'.M.A. Band Festival, brought to our town by Mr. Fleming, was the most important event of the school year. Two hundred and ten students representing high schools from many districts in southwestern Pennsylvania participated in the festivities and gave the town and its people a celebrated feeling of importance. The boys and girls in uniforms that represented their respective schcols made a colorful appearance. Mr. Harold Bachman of Chicago acted as guest conductor at the concerts and he was ably assisted by directors from represented schools, who aided with sectional rehearsals and also conducted several numbers during the concerts. Another unusual feature cf the band festival was a group of flag twirlers from Ferndale High School in Johnstown, who, with their brightly colored flags floating majestically through the air, won much applause from the audience.

The record for the season was one win, four losses and four ties. Coach 'McCarthy and Assistant Coach Tallman are Looking forward to a successful season in the fall because of the experience of many players and the advantage of having a trainf ing camp and a home Held.

This year, for the Hirst time, they were successful in securing an adequate training camp for the players, which in all probability will prove a valuable move. Page Fifty-six NINETEEN HUNDRED FORTY VARSITY LETTERMEN Warren Wenner Weighing 165' pounds and reaching five fee-t ten inches, "Red" proved to be a great player. Constantly chattering, "Red" kept the spirits of our team on a high standard. By stopping almost all of the opposition's off tackle plays, he proved tio be one of the best tackles Millvale ever had. He 'played his best game against Etna High. Robert Derringer Plsaying his second year as a varsity member, "Borp" was considered the fastest man on the squad. Bob could be seen making large openings for our fast backfield and stopping the opposing backs. He is remembered especially for his performance in the Shaler game. Sam Hoak Although Sam weighed only 135 pounds, he was one of the main stalwarts of the line. His consistent line of cha-tter kept every team member on his toes. Sam's small stature enaibled him to sneak through small holes and stop the offensive backfield. In due respect to his offensive and defensive ability he was chosen as a guard on the AllfDistri-ct Team. Stan Siranovich Despite his lack of size "Stan" was one of the main cogs on this and last year's eleven. On the offense he proved a capable end by snagging what everybody thought were uncatchmble passes and by being a good interference leader. As a defensive player "Stan" always seemed to be in the midst of all the plays and played especially well against the heavier opponents. Robert Harkins His ability to catch passes was boosted by his immense height. Because of his wanting to win, Bob was often seen in scrapes which usually occurred when playin-g against our rival teams, Etna and S-haler. His 185 pounds at right end proigdlgo strengthen the right side of the line which was hazardous to the opposing 'ac e . Walter Kennedy This was Joe's first year on the team, and because he was a senior he had to work twice as hard to make the varsity. His ability to back up a line on the defense and his accuracy in passing on the offense won him a regular berth. Carl Hoak "Cal" played left 'halffback on this year's squad and proved to be a very good field general. His passing was supreme and his fast side stepping enabled him to mrake many large gains for the Indians. Only a Sophomore, he will receive his second football letter this year. james Lawson After playing his first two years as a Varsity center, "jungle" was shifted to quarter back and pnoved to be quite capable for this position. He was chiefly noted for his long distant punting which kept the enemy back in their own territory. Regis Randig "Rudy" is a hard stubborn guard playing his Hrst season as .a regular. Rudy could be seen at the bottom of almost every pile with the ball carrier's legs twisted in his arms. His high spirits and joking mood kept the team in a fighting mood. A Page Fifty-seven THE MILLVALEAN Carl Seidl Although only a sophomore, Carl alternated with Joe Kennedy at center throughout the year. His superb tackling and backing up the line were helpful in many games. Much is expected of him in the next two years. Harry Klaas Though this was Harry's first year in football, he played in enough quarters tzo earn himself a letter. Because of an injured knee, he was forced to sit on the bench at the beginning of the year. When quite recovered, he was seen in action leading the offense on large gains. His height and weight will be needed on next year's squad. Edward Miklausic A fast sidefstepping right half for the Indians was "Eta", He was chiefly noted for his brilliant defense on passing and was always intercepting the ball. Once in the open he was hard to stop :and often made large gains. His best game was at Avonworth. Albert Rosendick A small but hard right half back was "Rosy", a dependable ball -carrier. Although not a regular, he managed to secure enough quarters to class himself a varsity member. He was outstanding for his line plunges which enabled 'him to make Hrst downs for his teammates. Edward Ruzomberka Because of an appendicitis operation in the latter part of August, "Eddie" was excluded from the lineup. His injuries healed after a ifew months' lay off and he Bnally managed to play the last game against Edgewood. George Roth Despite being a newcomer both in school and on the team, George, a rugged fullfback, finished the season with enough quarters for a letter. His greatest asset is his plunging ability which enabled the team to make those hard precilous feet for first downs. SUBSTITUTES The substitutes were john Britenbaugh, Frank Munson, James Shields, Herman Lipp, Robert Bluemling, Paul Knauer, Ellsworth Gosnell, Robert Zeppuhar, Paul Mihlfried, Earl Chambers, William Rakers and William Kuntz. Most of these boys played in games but did not earn enough quarters. This experience will prove helpful no them for next year. HONORED The Varsity Club extends a unanimous vote of thanks to Mr. Cishen, Mr. Wellinger, and Doctor Baldwin for the gold awards presented to the senior mem- bers of the school teams. Their interest will go far toward stimulating greater athletic prowess in wour student body. VARSITY CLUB To this club belong the lettermen of our football and basketball teams. Their main achievement is to present a delightful minstrel show each spring. Coach McCarthy is their enthusiastic sponsor, and Edward Ruzomberka their president. Walter Kennedy, Carl Seidl, Robert Derringer, Carl Hoak, Sam Hoak, Robert Harkins, Harry Klaas, Stanley Siranovich, James Lawson, Dan McCauley, William Riakers, Edward Miklausic, George Roth, Regis Randig, Elmo Marasti, Warren Wenner, Rsobert Pfischner, Edward Ruzomberka, Joseph Canonico, Frank Svach, Robert Zep-puhar and Paul Knauer are the members of this club. Page Fifly-eight NINETEEN HUNDRED FORTY Pugu' Fiflv ni TI-IE M I LLVALEAN BASKETBALL SEASON The basketball team, composed mostly of seniors and freshmen, enjoyed a fair season. During the regular season, the Indians won twelve games land lost ten. Though losing some very close games, Millvale managed to end up in third place in Section 18 with eight victories and six setbacks. Millvale displayed some brilliant playing in administering defeats to Oakmont, Verona and East Deer, and in being the only team in the league to come as close as three points in losing to Etna, winner of the section. The team was generally handicapped by the inexperi' ence of most of the members. The underclassmen, composing the second team, gained valulaible experience which will prove valuable to them next year.

Although -relying mainly on his defensive fplay, he acquired a "dead eye" for long shots in the last half of the season and pulled many glames out of the fire. With his team play and consistent wisecracks, he kept up the spirit of the squad. Eddie Ruzomberka The fact that he was a regular varsity performer for four years and captain of this year's team has enlarged the pl-aying experience of Eddie. Called by many opposing coaches "the best player in the league", he real'ly deserves this title. Ed is a great ball handler and passer, and has mastered the difficult pivot shot which enabled him tid cop the individual scoring title of the league. Frank Svach "Butch" was continually being called on "to slap the base", because of his un' canny ability to slap the ball with one hand into the hoop from any angle on the court. His tricky ball handling and fancy onefhanded shots enabled him to put on scoring spurts when the team was behind. Despite being 'hampered by a knee injury, he was second to "Ruzy" in individual scoring. Bob Harkins Blond Bob was a stellar performer and a six footfone center of the team. His great height enabled him to retrieve the ball off the board and start the offense rolling. Bfcb has always been an ideal defensive player but during the past season he surpassed all other efforts, playing his best game against Shadyside Academy. His rugged play and Hery temper kept the team fighting to the last minute. Dan McCauley Although not a regular, because of much illness throughout his four years, Dan proved himself a ca-pable substitute. Besides being a clever passer, he is an "ace dribbler" and a fine defensive team player. OTHER LETTERMEN Robert Zeppuhar This Junior proved a capable defensive man. He was often oailled on not sub' stitute in crucial moments in games and helped considerably with his long shots. Edward Miklausic "Ita" was considered the fastest man on the team and although only a sophof more he wvas often seen making layfup shzcts on fast cut plays. Carl Hoak This sturdy substitute :proved valuable in getting the ball off the banking board and fighting every minute. William Rakers Although only a freshman his previous experience and fancy passing enabled his team'mates to set up plays. Paul Knauer As a freshman, "Elbows" revealed some highfclass form and dribbling and, as with Rakers, much is expected of him next year. FRESHMEN BASKETBALL Under the leadership of Kirk Tallman, za freshmen basketball squad has been organized in order to furnish material for Mr. McCarthy's future Varsity. This year's team played a schedule including such teams as West View, E-tna, Shaler, Avalon and Aspinwall. Freshmen players include Joseph Pusateri, Pinky Britenf baugh, Ralph Bossing, Bob Pfund, Bob Bennett, jack Aufman, Charles Kopp, Lester Schwab and Jack Stout. Page Sixty-one THE MILLVALEAN WRESTLING TEAM T-his year M.H.S. en-tered a new line of endeavor in the field of athletics when a number of boys undertook the :art of wrestling under the leadership of Mr. Howard. Since they did not get started until late in the season, the team was not in W.P.I.A.L. competition. Next year, however, this sport should take a large share in the spot light as it will be played on equal standing with the other major activities. The wrestlers on this year's team are Edward Bender, Bernard Flowers, Warren Wenner, Robert Kroner, Walter Kennedy fthe only one on the team with previous experiencej, Jerome Kramer, Tom Gross, Pinky Britenbaugh, Earl Waltz, Tom McGinley, Ellsworth Gosnell, Ray Rudolph and Mike Quinlan. GIRLS' CLASS BASKETBALL This year the girls, as usual, formed enthusiastic teams and displayed their skill at several ma-tches Icutside school hours. The Seniors came out victorious, although the other teams gave them keen competition. Won Lost Captains Seniors ffffff 6 0 Mary Sebetich Freshmen f f f 3 3 Verna Mae Pavlick Sophomores f f 3 3 Geraldine Best Rita Hayson Juniors ffffff O 6 Betty Murslack The Senior team consisted of Anne Murslack, Anne Pavkovich, Catherine Hunter, Ilvlarie Kovacic, Lavina S'cl'ua.fer, Adelaide Waltz, and Captain Sebetich. Among the juniors were Eileen Ruzomberka, Mary Heimbuecher, Betty Schroeifel, Betty Wilkes, Gloria Manupelli, and Captain Murslack, The team of the Sophomore class included Mercedes Zimmers, Betty Alberth, Mary Canonico, Rose Struna, Olive Senk, and Captains Best and Hayson. Freshman Team--Catherine Pickel, Helen Burke, Dorothy Voit, Betty Born, Betty Riddlebaugh, and Captain Pavlick. BENEFIT The basketball team along with three of our boys, deserve much credit for their share in successfully putting on a benefit performance in mid-season. Proceeds of the game helped to pay for the hospitalization of two boys, Frank Munson and William Kuntz, injured during the football season. The basketball game, between the Indians and Pitcairn, required two extra periods with Millvale finally winning 3361. Stan Siranovich, a lad who has gone far in boxing finalist in the United States National Amateur Associa-tionj put on a great iight against Billy Wolf, well-known local fighter and winner of the Amateur Golden Glove Tournament. The efforts of Kroner and Flowers in fighting two boys from Etna and West View were appreciated 'by those who attended the affair. GIRLS' ATHLETIC CLUB This year welcomed the organization of a new club commonly known as the "Girls' Athletic Club." Different active sections were formed, including an ice' skating and a dramatic group. Under the sponsorship of Miss Wetzel the mem-bers presented an assembly program. The officers were Mary Sebetich, president, Rose Rudar, vicefpresidentg Eileen Ruzomberka, treasurer, and Geraldine Best, secretary. BOWLING TEAM The 1M.H.S. 'bowling team was something new and somewhat of a success in sports activity at Millvale High this year. Composed of such talent as Elmer Voit, Walter Aldinger, Bob Harkins, Tom Schrass and Captain Mike Guido, all seniors, and james Lawson and Walter Serva-tius, juniors, the team ended with a record of eleven wins and two losses. Among their victims were Shaler, Monaca, West View, Duke Preps, Arnold and M.oKees Rlccks. Much credit can be attributed to Mr. Swain, Mr. McCarthy and Mr. Zimmer for giving the boys their start.
