Forum Club, Chieftain Staf, valean Staff, Senior Play. Dorothy's athletic ability is enthusiastically devoted to winning basketball honors for her class. She competes with the best in cutting fancy figures on the ice. A trim wardrobe and immaculate coilfure add to this Senior's charm. Perhaps a few years from now you may tune in on your radio and hear Dorothy playing her Hawaiian guitar. DOROTHY BAUER "Dot" Girls' Chorus, Girls' Athletic Club, Forum Club, Millvalean StaE, Thimble Club, Class Basketball. Dark brown hair, plus green eyes, plus a pleasing personality equals popular Dot. All school functions would be incom lete if Dot were not there to add to the fun. The male students find, her quite attrac' tive and vie energetically for her attentions. Her chief hobby is dancing, where her ability is wistfully admired by her audience. NANCY BECHAK Chieftain Staf, Baton Club, Forum Club, Millvalean Staf, Minstrel, Girls' Chorus, Girls' Athletic Club, Crafts Club, Dramatic Club, Class Basketball, Red Cross Club, Senior Play. One of the most digniiied of the Senior lasses is our Nancy. She is as equally adept in roller skating as she is in twirling a baton for our band. Nancy is noted for her levelfheadednesa and artistic ideas. We wish her luck in her chosen career of dress designing. MARIE BERAN "Shorty" Band, Orchestra, Rilie Club, Archery, Dramatic Club, Minstrel, Girls' Chorus, President of Girls' Athletic Club, Bowling Team, Chieftain Stall, Business Manager for Senior Play, Millvalean Staff. Marie's amiable qualities and pleasant manner have won for her the honor of President of the Girls' Athletic Club. She has the knack of injecting her witty remarks advantageously into all conversation. A dependable young lady and a willing worker would best describe Marie to her teachers and classmates alike. TERESA BEST "Tess" Library Assistant, Clam Basketball, Dramatic Club, Girls' Athletic Club. Theresa is the "Best" of our Senior class. She is another one of those quiet Mt. Troy lasses who attract our Millvale boys. If all the Home Economic students were as diligent and expert a seamstress as Theresa, Schiaperelli would soon have competition. BETTY BLAZEK "Ben" Girls' Chorus, Girls' Athletic Club, Baton Club, Rifle Club, Tap Class. A quiet manner and shy smile seem to be the belt recipe for collect- ' f ' d b . F B ll ' mg nen s a out one or etty. we equipped with th of these. can boast of many friends. The rhythmic tapping of dancing feet has made her known to many of us. .-r.e, .t . THE CLASS OF 1941 ROBERT BLUEMLING "Pete" 1 Bowling Team, Basketball Reserve, Hi-Y, Varsity Football Team, Class Boxing, Class Softball, Varsity Club. Bob, "the mighty mite" plays an excellent game of football. Always in good spirits, continually smiling, though rather timid, he is destined to make a place for himself in the future. We know he'll go places for "Never say die" is his motivating motto. MARION BLUMER Honor Graduate, Cheerleader, Millvalean Staff, Treasurer of Sophomore Class, Girls' Chorus, Minstrel, Assembly Play, Class Basketball, Rifle Club, Girls' Athletic Club, Bowling Team, Dramatic Club, Senior Play. This pcppy little dynamo adds a flavor of zest to our agile group of cheerleaders. Like an overffilled cup, her sparkling personality is always spilling over into contagious giggles and witty remarks. There is no bottom to her well of good spirits and cheerful helpfulness. It is no wonder Marion is so valued as a member of our graduating class. VIRGINIA BOSSING "Ginny" Millvalean Staff, Chieftain Staff, Crafts Club, Girls' Athletic Club. Though "Bossing" is Virginia's name, she can never be accused of this. On the contrary, her friendly and easyfgoing nature make her an easy mark for the hardluck stories of students who just can't get things done. A ready smile best characterizes the willing personality of Virginia. ROY BRYSON RiHe Club, Forum Club, Student Speaker at Assembly Millvalean Salesman. Attractive, wavey'haired Roy is always to be found with a certain Senior lass almost every hour of the day. At home-between dates- he reads widely. but at school he talks little. Dressed well, but conservatively, hc is liked by all. CATHERINE BUDACKI "Kate" Girls' Athletic Club, Forum Club, Chieftain StaE, Millvalean Typist. ' Catherine's lustrous black tresses fall in smooth waves to her shoulders making a becoming picture. Though she is quite shy with those she does not know. to her friends she is a continuous source of delight with her quick smile and willingness to help all. As a seamstress l Catherine ranks with the best of them. RALPH BURKE Millvalean Salesman, Class Basketball, Senior Play. Tall, blond "Romeo Ralph" is the idol of many feminine hearts. Although he keeps much to himself, his friendliness radiates from him in far reaching rays. We wonder if he blushes as deeply when visiting the "mountain misses" as he does in his classes.

Effervescing with gay spirits and ready wit, "Cal" supplies fun for ali her ieilow classmates. Her nonsensical chatter can be heard continuously as she converses with her many friends. She upholds the principles of the Irish race with her boisterous sense of humor and good lellowship. Her twinkling blue eyes tell you she is a true friend and a helper in necd. DOMINIC CARPENTER "Dan" Bowling Team, Assembly Play. Trim little Danny presents a study of Roman features. Quiet, ready, willing, and able, he is to be continually found with his friends, always cheerful-though rather phlegmatic. We are indeed proud of this conservative lad. RUTH CERNY "Pat" Forum Club, Girls' Athletic Club, Chieftain Staff, President of Crafts Club, Millvalean Staff. Although it has been said that Ruth dislikes school, you would not know it from her attitude as she is both efficient and prompt in her subjects. The abrupt and masculine way in which she greets her fellow classmates has boosted her friendship up and up. Her aptitude for sewing and cooking will probably steer her directly to the sea of matrimony. DELANO CRAWFORD "Del" President of Sophomore Class, Hi-Y, Class Basketball, Band, Orchestra, P. S. M. A. Band '40, Forum Club, Class Mush- ball, Bowling Team. Never let it be said that Del doesn't mind his "P's" and "Q's" when he's with the girls-especially the underclass ones. He is popular because of his smooth dancing and "happy-goflucky' attitude. Incif dcntally, he is musically inclined and plays a sweet melaphone. CATHERINE DE BANNES "Caddie" Crafts Club, Millvalean Salesman, Girls' Athletic Club, Red Cross Club. Catherines cameoflike face reveals a charming personality. It is not often a Senior class can boast of such a demure and petite lass. Her shy manner has endeared her to many df her classmates. In knitting Catherine can be surpassed by none. MILDRED DETISCH "Millie" Girls' Athletic Club, Archery Club, Forum Club, Girls' Chorus. The invigorating mountain air Ovit. Troyl has made Millie a plump and jolly individual. A cheery smile continually brightens the countenance of this well'liked classmate. Mil takes lightly the teasing she receives and more than manages to do her share of the joking. - fi JOHN DILLER "Dill" Millvalean Staff, Bowling Team, Hi-Y, Gay Nineties Pro- gram, Chieftain Staff. Madame La Zonga Diller is surc to give you six easy lessons in dancing, telling jokes, the art of laughter, chasing the blues away, being happy and carefree. Tall, thin, forever on the move, Dill is to be found everywhere at the same time. BERNEITA DUFFEY "Bunny" Cheerleader, Girls' Athletic Club, Rifle Club, Bowling Team, Millvalean Staff, Girls' Chorus, Dramatic Club, Forum Club, Assembly Play, Minstrel, Senior Play. If you are looking for a combination of red hair, lots of fun, and an easily excited temper, you will find them all in "Bunny". Her zealous cheerleading has helped our team on to many victories. Bernita is a dangerous character on the Rifle Club for she can shoot as straight as any wild man from the West. Her argurnentations will be an asset to her in her chosen profession as a lawyer. EL ffoouyf' DOLORES EST Girls' Athletic Club, Chieftain Staff, Bowling Team, Mill- valean Typist, Girls' Chorus, Forum Club, Candy Seller, Dramatic Club. Dolly's blue eyes and black curly hair make a striking combination. M Al rnia Millvale finally captured this girl from her mountain top K t. ve Highj in her Junior year. She is quite a busy young lady dividing her time between the Millvale High activities and those of the Sarah Heinz House. BERTHA FINK "Tops" High Honor Graduate, Forum Club, Minstrel, Archery Club, Bowling Team, Chieftain Staff, Millvalean StaH, Girls' w .Chorus, Class Basketball, Dramatic Club, Gay Ninetes Sho , Senior Play. Bertha is a wellfliked Senior lass who takes her studies quite seriously. ' " .d ' when she left there bhe was Mount Alvernias loss ar our gain during her Sophomore year. Characterizcd by a robust nature and a hearty laugh, she will succeed wherever she goes-in the world or home. scEven EVELYN FINSTER Millvalean Typist, Chieftain Staff, Secretary-Treasurer of Thimble Club. Evelyn's exuberant personality and excited chatter are mirrored by her laughing blue eyes. Where "Cedic" is there shall Evelyn be, giggling over the happenings of the evening before. Evelyn is noted for her demure "Shirley Temple dimples" which lurk at the corners of her mouth continually flashing in and out as she talks to her classmates. I9 RAYMOND FLEMING "Ray High Honor Graduate, Advisor of Forum Club, Camera Club, Bowling Team, Band, Orchestra, Millvalean Staii, Merit Parader, Senior Play. Shy. immaculate Ray is one of our most versatile Senior boys. He is not only a brilliant violinist but also an accomplished clarinetist. His scholastic and photographic abilities are two more attainments of which this polite lad can boast.

The lab seems to be T7 the favorite haunt of this future Einstein, for she can always be found there in her leisure time mixing all the known chemicals within hands' reach. Flem is an ardent fan of Glenn Miller, and is happiest when jitterbugging to his music. She is an extensive reader and is well versed on the current topics of the day. ' .ii ' Wg 51 ..,f' f 4 ELEANOR FRAN KE Dramatic Club, Candy Seller, Girls' Chorus, Girls' Basketball, Secretary of Girls' Athletic Club, Chieftain Staff, Gay Nineties 12.2 Show, Assembly, Bowling Team. Eleanor is a bottomless well of humor which continually spills over in gales of laughter and witty remarks. She has roven her willingness is to help by consenting to take part in several school assemblies where she was more than well liked, Skiing is included in her lon line of if sports. Her businessflike ability has been proven in her duties as lf Secretary of the Girls Athletic Club and candy seller. r,, fa X , WILBERT FRIEDEL "Will" 1,. l Witty Will is strangely enough a very shy boy, but his amiability ii and friendliness made him we l-liked, He has remarkable stamina, as 'lf he must do his school work at odd hours. No matter what comes 1' or goes, Will smiles at everyone, just as his straightfforward manner ' always prevails. , . 2 HOWARD GREEN "Greenie" Band, Orchestra, Class Basketball, Senior Play. From high up on the mountains comes this immaculate lad. He is a steady worker, but delights in taking school in a lighter vein. Short, and neatly conspicuous in a crowd, he can invariably be seen croon' ing as a member of the "Mountain Male Quartet." THOMAS GROSS "Tom junior Class, Chieftain Staff, Assistant Manager of Football and Basketball, Football Manager, Varsity Club, Class Basket ball, Wrestling Team, Mzllvalean StaE He is quite a gxtterbug and Just as competent an athletic manager Two of his class periods and most of his spare time are spent in the shop Despite the fact that he is a beginner at sports he is an excellent wrestler and has helped to put M H S on the wrestling map RUTH HAUGH Small-fry High Honor Graduate, Baton Club, Minstrel, Girls' Chorus, Girls Athletic Club, Chieftain StaE Millvalean Stal! Assembly Plav. Dramatic Club, Treasurer of Freshman Class, Secretary of Rifle Club As tiny as a minute and as bright as a new penny Ruth is liked 5 by all her classmates.

VIRGINIA HAYSON "Jeanne" Baton Club, Girls' Athletic Club, Class Basketball, Millvalean Salesman. lt is just as easy for A'Ginny" to twist the fellows about her linger as it is to twirl her baton for our band. Her mischievous air and giggling wit have induced her to take her studies lightly in the years she has been at M. H. S. "Ginny's" personality far overpowers her four feet eleven inches. MARY HEIMBUECHER "Merry X" High Honor Graduate, Class Basketball, Girls' Mushball, Girls' Athletic Club, Forum Club, Library Assistant, Archery Club, Merit Paz-acler, Manager of Refreshment Stand, Co- Editor of Chieftain, Crafts Club, President of Senior Class, Dramatic Club, Millvalean Staff. If we were to make a balance sheet of the class of '41, Mary would be at the top of the assets. She has helped prove that women :re not the weaker sex, for she has aptly executed the office of class president. Versatility sums her up to a "T" for she is willing to help in every way. Besides all her duties, Mary always Ends time for fun, and we are sure she will have no trouble in capturing success in later life. EDWARD HEULER "Ed" Camera Club, P. S. M. A. '40, Band, Orchestra, Class Basketball, Class Mushball, Minstrel Jazz Band, Forum Club, Bowling Team, Senior Play. 'iI.ittle fellow but much noise" is what many of our comrade lndians say of Ed. Always jolly and constantly after the undergraduate girls, he is prone to taking school in a lighter vein, His characterization of Edgar in our Senior Play brought out his hidden acting ability. VIRGINIA HILDENBRAND "Ginny" Student Speaker at Assembly, Millvalean Salesman, Band, Orchestra, Girls' Chorus, Forum Club, Girls' Athletic Club, Crafts Club, Minstrel, Dramatic Club, Chieftain Staff. We are sure it is Virginia's music that adds so sweetly to the clarinet section of our band. lf Virginia is not using her boundless energy to play her instrument, she is running about the halls prattling the laitestf news to her friends. We have found her to be a real pal to a o us. ROBERT IMGRUND "Bob" President of Rifle Club, Secretary of Hi-Y, Flag Bearer, Archery Club, Chieftain Staff, Millvalean Staff, Bowling Team, Forum Club. A crack rifleman, Bob is continually talking to Mr. Beyers, the ncw sponsor of the "gun toters." Firearms are not his only hobby how' ever, as archery is just as interesting and fascinating to him. "Little shsrt fellow, but got um big voice" certainly describes Bob to a ANTHONY IMHOF "Tony" Class Basketball, Class Mushball, Hi-Y. If you have a hard time finding Tony, just look in the Shop and probably you will find a busy lad, covered with sawdust and usually making a lamp. He's popular among the boys despite his quiet nature. and is often seen in Millvale riding around with his car full of "Mountain boys."

Mary Elizabeth. the softest spealring Senior, recites the correct answers in her classes barely above a whisper. HARRY KLAAS "Hank" Varsity Basketball, Varsity Football, Varsity Club, Class Basketball, Class Softball. Handsome Harry is one of the biggest boys of the class, and very prominent because of his sturd build. This of course. has won him a coveted place on the football field just as wavy hair and smooth features make him exceedingly popular with the fairer sex. MARIE KNOCKEL "Sis" Girls' Athletic Club, Crafts Club. As eager as Marie is to malre friends, her quiet ways and shy smile have hindered her from making advances, Her ebony hair and dark eyes are an attractive combination. Though Marie takes her studies lightly, she has come this far with no mishaps and we are sure she will succeed in the world. ROBERT KOFMEPIL "Robin" Honor Graduate. Bob, a polite, retiring lad, is willing to bet on football. baseball, or any sport in which he can piclr a winner, In P. O. D. classes, he is not only hard to convince, but just as hard to draw into a discussion because he hates to have anyone spoil his pet theories. His willingness to cooperate and his steady thinking will be an asset to the business world. GERALDINE LANG "Gerry" Hizh Honor Graduate, Chieftain StaE, Millvalean Stal Girls' Athletic Club. We were indeed fortunate in securing Gerry for our own school as she was formerly a student of Brentwood High. You can always End Sue and her whispering and giggling in some corner of the school. Her cheerful attitude will lighten any sickroom when she has Gnished her much desired nurse's training. EDNA LAVSA "Eddie" Baton Club, Minstrel, Concert, Bowling Team, Treasurer of Rifle Club, Treasurer of Junior Class, Millvalean Salesman, Chieftain Staff. The theme of Edna's happiness is attractive clothes, and if she were graded on this we are sure she would rate an A. Blonde hair and blue eyes add to this likeable Senior's attractiveness. Edna has added much spirit to our school for she is one of those girls we can dub a "staunch supporter" of all affairs. 1 'i -7-qugzpr-3,-----T-1-,--,-.----,fir -V. ....i, in... :,. ,., ,,,, . , ,P A 1 K 1, li F IAMES LAWSON ululiglen Football, Class Boxing, Orchestra, Band, P.

Ice cream cones and heated discussions are the two things that "Moose" enjoys most. ln any good argument he lilies to let every- one know that he's not asleep. He's a lot of fun in English class, where everyone enjoys his oral book reports. We will especially remember "Moose" for his ability to dance, his sturdy build, and his placement kicking on the gridiron, THE CLASS OF 194 Page Ninetee I n Let X31 .nz .AF 153.

She good naturedly accepts the teasing re' marks about her 5 and l0c trinkets which jingle merrily from her wrists and neck. Mildred's varied wardrobe is the result of her expert sewing ability. SUZANNE McNERNEY "Sue" Chieftain StaE, Girls' Athletic Club. Another one of those cheery Irish has found her way to our school. Sue is always ready for all types of fun where her merry laughter lets you know she is present. She and "Gerry" are inseparable pals and their senses of humor make them a jolly pair. VINCENT MIHLFRIED "Splinters" Band, Orchestra, Bowling Team, Class Basketball, Clue Softball, Wrestling. "Vince" is a tall boy with two outstanding characteristics-curly hair and a contagious smile for everyone. He usually attends every dance in school and certainly he has made more progress in dancing than he has in his English classes. If ever you have trouble with your pet joke, just tell it to Vince and you are sure to be rewarded with his unusual chuckle. JACK MONAI-IAN "Mossy" This tall, lanky lad is extremely bashful which is evident from his numerous blushes. On the ym iloor, however, ,lack is inconspicu- ously athletic. Here his digdence vanishes. for he is in his own element. At the same time, though, he has not failed to "court" one of our underclass girls. RICHARD MUENZER "Buck" He may be hard to find since he's one of the smallest boys in his class, but ep y "Ritchie" doesn't have much trouble making friends. His red thaatch indicates a quick temper and sometimes it gets the best of him when his friends call him "Buck." ,ff ,L ,. -e 'f i -. .ig -v "- !- s ut .v 1 4 Us n u ' weeds... -'.-1, veal? -.

Secretary, Senior Play. As an Easter outlit would be without a new chapeau, so our band would be without Betty, for she adds that perfect touch. Betty can " always be seen busily rushin here and there in order to remain a competent secretary to Mr. lgleming, and still attend all the school affairs. Popular is just the word to describe our high-stepping drum major. HELEN NOBBS Girls' Athletic Club, Baton Club, Girls' Chorus. A merry smile and mischievous glance are the enviable treasures of this tiny-waisted miss. Helen is as welcome to school affairs as money to a miser and the functions are always brightened by her presence. She can usually he counted upon to be present at school skates, one of her favorite diversions. MARY 0'BRIEN Honor Graduate, Library Assistant, Chieftain Staff. Mary must have at one time "kissed the Blarney stone," for she is continually chattering to her groups of friends. She ably relates many experiences that have happened to her while she was an cHicient librarian for M. H. S. Her professional manner and friendly attitude will surely carry her to far heights in the world. JACK OSWALD "Ossie" Millvalean Salesman, Assembly Play. "Don Juan" Jack is always fashionably attired in the latest styles. His talks in English class are always interesting. as he has a knack for choosing unusual, humorous topics. Constantly with the girls, he is til be found glibly talking away, as if he has not a worry in the WO! . MILDRED OVERAN D "Mil" Baton Club, Millvalean Salesman, Minstrel, Girls' Athletic Club, Girls' Chorus, Dramatic Club, Class Basketball. Millie is quite a popular miss since her contagious giggle adds more fun to everything in which she participates. Her jet black curls, the envy of many a girl, bob up and down vigorously as she dances the latest "jitterbug" steps. Millie's dark beauty and sunny dis- position will prove an asset in her chosen profession of nursing.

A A bright smile and a pleasant manner of speaking characterize con' genial Rose Marie. She is a sedate, quiet miss who is noted for her immaculate hairstyles. She and Ev are inseparable companions. FRED PHILLIPS "Fritz" Camera Club, Class Basketball. One of the intellectuals of our groug of Senior boys is Fred. His blood pressure is significant in his a ility to blush. Foremost in his affections is his ja opy, which has been the subject of many an Lnteresting theme. As a law student, Fred takes his place among the est. EDWIN PORTERFIELD "Pol-tei" Hi-Y, Rifle Club, Bowling Team, Millvalean Staf. This Senior lad is exceedingly interested in photography. He is is neat dresser and is fond of driving his gasoline bulgy through the town. Good naturedly he takes the "ribbings" of his fellow students because of his weakness for blonde locks. Ed is a prominent member of the rifle club. ANNA MAE PSCHIRER "Gal" Sirk' Chorus, Girls' Athletic Club, Archery Club, Millvalean ta . Though Anna Mae is jolly and garrulous she knows when to be quiet and makes a model pupil in classes, es ecially in secretarial work. Her easyfgoing nature has made her a beloved pal to all of us. The Senior class can be proud of a jovial personality such as Anna Mae's. REGIS RANDIG "Bandit" Vice President of Varsity Club, Hi-Y, Captain of Football Team, Class Basketball, Class Boxing, Class Softball, Reserve Basketball. Captain Randig, who usually sports a shy, different manner, is quite a "hefman" on the gridiron. His frequent successful arguments with the referee have shown us that beneath that mask of "blush" lies a spirit of courage. His nonchalant manner and carefree air have won him a host of friends, THELMA RAVA "Thelma" Honor Graduate. Girls' Chorus, Assistant Editor of Mill- valean, Forum Club, Girls' Athletic Club, Thimble Club, Minstrel, Assembly Play, Dramatic Club, Vice President of Senior Class, Senior Play. No matter what comes or goes, "Thelm" is always the same-do pendable, pleasant. and companionable. Although she is quiet and reserved with strangers, when she is with her friends she becomes a one-sided conversationalist. "Thelm" has decided vie ints on almost all subjects and no amount of persuasion can changgvhgr mind. She is one of those capable persons who is an asset to any class. ,Hex , .,.,.

He has been of much help to Miss johnson and has done fine work in making the library a brighter and neater place in which to do research work. "Trombone Johnny" has been one of our most valuable assets. ALEX ROHOZA "Hecky" Reserve Basketball, Class Basketball, Minstrel, Forum Club, Rifle Club, Class Mushball. Bing Crosby has nothing on Alex, for at lunch hour "l"lecky", with his cronies, can be heard singing the strains of some familiar song. Hecky could inveigle a laugh from anyone, as his quips and jokes are enjoyed by all. Personality plus--that's Alex! ROSE RUDAR "Honey" President of Freshman Class, Archery Club, Vice President and Treasurer of Girls' Athletic Club, Class Basketball, Girls' Chorus, Minstrel, Chieftain Staff. Rose was appropriately named, for a sweeter rose cannot be found. An omnipresent smile and a cheery attitude toward everyone has endeared her to all her classmates. Perfectly groomed hair and immaculate clothes characterize her to the "nth" degree. Although Rose aspires to be a beautician, we think she will be an expert housewife instead. DOROTHY RUMBAUGH "Dots" High Honor Graduate, Editor-in-Chief of Millvalean, Merit Parader, Advisor of Forum Club, Library Assistant, Chieftain Staf, Girls' Chorus, Crafts Club, Minstrel, Dramatic Club, Student Speaker at Assembly. Although she has only been with us for two years. Dot has carved a niche in the hearts of all her classmates. "Busy as a bee", she never refuses a job and once started. does not stop until it is completely hnished. Her kind. understanding ways, her cheery words of help, and her ever-ready smile have assisted many a fellow student. Dot is one of the most faithful workers of the class of "4l". EILEEN RUZOMBERKA Cheerleader, Treasurer of Girls' Athletic Club, Dramatic Club, Class Basketball, Chieftain Staf, Millvalean Staf, Girls' Chorus, Minstrel, Bowling Team, Gay Nineties Show. She's in-she's out-that's the way Eileen's attendance record for the past years reads. Nevertheless, she is in school enough to malre us appreciate her friendly personality. Her lusty cheering helped to arouse much school spirit among the student body for the past two years. She is happiest when trying new and difficult dance steps with her numerous pals. ARDELLA SCHAPER "Dell" Girls' Chorus, Assembly Play, Baton Club, Girls' Athletic Club, P. S. M. A. Chorus, Minstrel, Millvalean Salesman. "Life is just a bowl of cherries," or so it seems with "Dell", for she is always ready for a good time. This blue-eyed blonde is welcomed by all, for she is always ready to break into a melodious song. Ardella's rich alto voice won her the honor of attending the All-Western State Chorus, and we are sure she will go far up the scale of musical success. THE CLASS OF 1941 Page Twenty-three EVELYN SCHMIDT "Ev" Millvalean Salesman, Crafts Club. A bewitching smile, and merry, laughing eyes are the captivating qualities of this charming miss. Her gay spirits far exceed her tiny stature. A wise man indeed is the one who prophesied, "Good things come in small packages." JAMES SCHMIDT "jim" Since "jim" is one of the tall boys of Millvale Hi, we can well say that he belongs to the "upper" class of students. Always cheerful, he is a friend o everyone and one of the few that can get along with teachers and pupils alike. His future looks bright, as he has the qualities necessary for business. BETTY JANE SCHMITI' "Ben" Rifle Club, Baton Club, Minstrel, Chieftain Staff, Millvalean Typist, Girls' Athletic Club, Class Basketball. Every class must have that sophisticated lady to make it complete. Betty jane's golden locks and charming manner have helped to heap this title upon her person. She is forever talking and her blue eyes snap energetically as she relates some humerous tale. Her slim hgure gracefully ornaments our Baton Club. GRACE SCHRASS "Schnappsy" Girls' Athletic Club, Chieftain StaH, Millvalean Typist, Thimble Club. Grace is one of those carefree students who always seems to get a maximum amount of fun out of a minimum amount of energy. If you don't know her, just look for a girl charging down the hal with some typing for Miss Smith, and ten to one it's Grace. Her gay vixitticisms and jolly laughter have added much to the fun of the cass. BETTY SCHROEFFEL "Sis" Honor Graduate, Dramatic Club, Forum Club, Girls' Athletic Club, Clam Basketball, Girls' Chorus, Axembly Play, Minstrel, Millvalean Typist, Class Mushball, Senior Play. A hearty laugh and keen wit are Betty's envied contributions to her class, A beloved pol to all her classmates, no task is too great and no detail too small to perform for them. Her humorous attitude enables her to see the optimistic side of life. RITA SCHROEFFEL "Rec" Forum Club, Girls' Athletic Club, Archery Club, Chieftain Staf, Dramatic Club. Though Rita is always worrying about her studies, she needn't for she usually makes the grade. A friendly lass from Mt. Troy would describe her accurately. Rita has collected many friends about her at Millvale High. ,ff 'TC3'-'sf' ' M'-.LR Q SPH' "Biff . 3 '1 - ' ELSIE SCHWALM "Else" Rille Club, Millvalean Staff, Bowling Team. Elsie is another one of our care-free Senior girls. Where studies are, Elsie never is. She does not believe in the adage, "Silence is golden," for she would rather talk than eat. Friendliness and wit shine forth from her merry eyes, just as her lovable personality and attractiveness have gathered friends from both sexes about her. RUTH SENK "Ruthie" Girls' Chorus, Dramatic Club, Forum Club. Deep, deep dimples attractively punctuate the sweet beauty of Ruth. Being of a lovable nature, Ruth has seriously attracked her allections to one of our Senior boys. Ruth, we hear, is well versed in the culinary arts-perhaps wedding bells. WALTER SERVATIUS "Beans" Bowling Team, Class Basketball, Millvalean Staff, Chieftain Sralf, Class Softball, Football. "Beans," Diller's sidekick, is the topfnotch bowler of our school. When he isn't bowling, his spare time is Zpent setting up pins. His jovial personality, plus a thorough knowle ge of commercial subjects and -sport highlights should insure him a position in either Held. MARIAN SCHERMOCK "Shirley" Honor Graduate, Secretary of junior Class, Girls' Athletic Club, Archery Club, Minstrel, Chieftain Stai, Girls' Chorus, Millvalean Stall, Assembly Play, Senior. Marian's twinkling eyes and natural brighmess are an asset which any class would envy. Along with these outstandin characteristics, she distplays that peaches and cream complexion which aoa ada advocate. Gi ted with a kind nature and a sense of humor, hflgrian leaves no chance for a joke to slip by. If she supports everything in life as she does her vehemently expounded views in P.O.D., we know success will be hers. PEARL SHIRING "Sue" Girls' Athletic Club. One of the most quiet members of our class, Pearl has a sweet quality of shyness. Although she is not often heard, she's well worth listening to. In the two years that she has been with us. her attrac- tive blondness and friendly attitude have made her a vital part of Millvale Hi, FRANCIS STAUS "Frank" Forum Club. Quiet and unassuming, Francis can always be found studying his Law or writing a short story. His opinions, given at large intervals, are sensible and thoughtfprovokin , and you need but read one of his stories to know him-thoughttgul, generous, and broad-minded.

"Stickle" makes a lot of sweet syncopation come out of his trumpet, but Mr. Fleming has to keep an eye peeled in his direction to make sure tnat it isn't the strains of "Frenesi" or some other popular song that come forth. Aside from playing a trumpet he manages to keep in the limelight by talking glihly in circles. BERNADETTE STEEDLE "Benny" Crafts Club. A member of the fair-haired group of our class is Bernie.

When there is any tedious task to be done, she is always ready, willing, and able. FLORENCE STONEWARD "Stoney" Girls' Athletic Club, Millvalean Staff, Chieftain StaH, Forum Club. Flo, a creditable representative of Mt. Troy, is exceedingly apt at commercial subjects. An amiable regard toward her fellow students, coupled with a becoming air of shyness, make her well liked by all who know her. Because of her domestic ability, she is a student worthy of Miss Smith's pride. EVELYN SUSKO "Eve" Girls' Athletic Club. Evelyn is an enigma that just can't lee solved.

CHRIS TRAICHE "Senator" President of Forum Club, Band, Orchestra, Gay Nineties Show, Assembly Play, Chiettain Staff, Millvalean Staff, Dramatic Club, Class Basketball, Senior Play. P. O. D, classes are Chris' specialty. He takes a stand in every discussion and consequently is one of the acuve memters oi thc Forum Club. Well known among the students as the "walking library," he is rarely ever seen without botn arms full of books. Above all else, never let it be said that Chris is poorly read. BETTY TRITSCH "Betz" Baton Club, Minstrel, Girls' Chorus, Millvalean Salesman, Forum Club, Bowling Team, Assembly Play, Crafts Club, Rifle Club. Some people think Betty is a quiet and shy lass, but that is because they oon t know her. In reality, she is lull of pep and friendliness that have endeared her to many of us. Smart clothes and thick brunette locks top oil a pleasing personality. The Baton Club would be minus an added attraction it betty were not a member.

BETTY WILKES "Shorty" Girls' Athletic Club, Girls' Chorus, Minstrel, Assembly Play, Archery Club, Girls' Bakabau. Betty resembles a diminutive China doll-fragile. delicate and blue eyed.

Her spare time is devoted to music, for she not only plays the piano, but also sings, as is shown by the fact that she is an ardent member of the Girls' Chorus. DOROTHY ANDRISEVIC An ambitious future nurse is this dependable young Senior. Dorothy has worked hard during her four years at Millvale High, but her carefree nature has won her a host of friends. However, she has never permitted her love for fun to interfere with her studies. MARY HEIMBUECHER In spite of the many activities in which Mary participates, she has managed to retain a splendid scholastic record, winning for her the friendship of the faculty as well as underclassmen. To climax her outstanding career, she was chosen for the Merit Parade as well as the office of class president. GERALDINE LANG The most difficult of assignments could not succeed in discouraging Gerry. If she follows her ambition to study nursing, her classmates are conhdent she will succeed. "Nothing too tough for Gerry," is a familiar reference to her. RAYMOND FLEMING Ray holds the distinction of being the only boy graduating with high honors. He proved an invaluable assistant to Mr. Burgess in taking the informal Millvalean pictures. Although a shy lad, Ray has won the friendship of practically every Senior. RUTH HAUGH Ruth is an excellent example of the fact that size has nothing to do with brains. In four years at Millvale High, she has achieved a scholastic record that she can well be proud of. Everybody who knows her will always remember her friendly manner and cheerful smile. DOROTHY RUMBAUGH Dot is "one in a million." She can always be found in a cheerful and helpful mood toward classmates and faculty alike. judging by her excellent work with the Millvalean we are conident that she will realize her ambition to be successful in the field of journalism. Since her type of person is a rarity, the class of '41 will always be proud to claim Dot as a member. HONOR GRADUATES MARIE BERAN Marie is a student of the 'Commercial Course and some day this future secretary will find her place in the business world. Her employer, whoever he may be, is certain to be as satisfied with her work as the faculty of Millvale High has been for the past four years. THELMA RAVA Thelma is a perfect example of the adage, "A friend in need, is a friend, indeed." She is always ready to help either classmates or the faculty and can always be depended upon to do a good job. Arrangements for dances or skates have a strange way of falling upon Thelma, for which tasks she can always be found ready, willing and able. P age Thirty MARY ELIZABETH KELLER Although red hair and bad tempers are said to go hand in hand, Mary Elizabeth has disproved this theory. She possesses a great talent as well as love for chemistry. Sihe is one of the "crack shots" of the Rifle Club, although she handles a rifle almost as gently as a test tube. PRISCILLA LENTZ Priscilla's excellent piano playing has made it common knowledge that she is a great lover of music. Her ability to do almost anything has won for her the admiration of all. A wealth of knowledge lies behind her unassuming manner. ELSIE WITZORRECK "Was that supposed to be a laugh?" Indeed it was and its happyfgoflucky owner is none other than Elsie. She is one of those rare lasses that excels in practi-cally everything she does, and this year she received another honor-that of being declared one of Miss Smith's inest knitters. DOROTHY CALLAHAN "Cal," as she is known by her friends, is a great lover of scholastic sports. She knows that "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," and she has seen to it that this never happened to her. Despite this fact she has maintained her scholastic honors. MARIAN SCHERMOCK Marian is an enthusiastic supporter of practically every activity that is held in the school. She does well in all her subjects, but Bookkeeping seems to receive the honor of being her favorite. Marian is an unusual person, in that she is alwavs busy in study halls. MARY O'BRIEN When it comes to finding your way around the library you can always de- pend upon Mary for help. She knows the books in the library almost as well as they know themselves. A student of the Commercial 'C-ourse, she will some day prove of inestimable worth to her employer. MARION BLUMER Marion is another of those Senior girls who is considered "tops" by her classmates. The excellent results she obtains in anything she does proves that she will go a long way in any field of work she may choose to enter. WINIFRED THOMPSON Winifred is one person who really seems to enjoy school. This is probably one of the reasons for her fine scholastic record at Millvale High. You can be sure that whatever she sets out to do she will accomplish. Winifred is well read- especially on material she can obtain about General Lee. BETTY SCHROEFFEL Betty's friendly manner and pleasant disposition permit her to call practically everybody she knows, a friend. She is the athletic type and loves to watch a good game as well as participate. Her main interest in school as well as for the future seems to center around Home Economics. ROBERT KOFMEHL Although Bob never seems to be too busy with his homework, or in the least worried about his classes, he always manages to remain on the honor roll. lxigh scholastic record does not, however, mean that he is a great admirer of sc oo.

Cinderella cast aside Books and complications, Forsaken were the Latin words And scientific explanations. Off went the sloppy saddle shoes Which had weathered life with a smile, On came a pair of glassfheeled slippers, The latest Paris style. The faithful skirt of other days, Which for service had won renown, Was replaced by something frilly, An eyefbrow lifting gown. The beautician's magic touch, As she Exed each gleaming curl, Made Cindy think herself Quite a stylish little girl. Then came the night- Gindy waited with excited expectation, Her nose she powdered Hfty times In nervous desperation. Her Prince Charming came at last In his chariot of tin and rattling bolts, And Cindy gritted her well-brushed teeth As she thought of the forthcoming jolts. Well, away they went And Cindy danced until the stroke of f - Untilcililgr -poor feet ached each time They touched the polished floor. As upon her waiting pillow Cindy dropped her weary head, "Gee, it was a swell prom!" Were the last words that she said. Page Thirty-three ' Q L? Ji .- 4 I1 g A.. "'5T!""7'i V , g"1z'F'Y!W"fL" V' H. 'f Y. -'i' , .J1q,gf., ig f , ,N THE MILLVALEAN HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR FOUR YEARS September 1937-Starry-eyed, shaking, Freshmen, expecting the inevitable, were formally introduced to Millvale High. Probably a little relieved, perhaps a little sorry, we were informed that we would not be subject to initiation. New to the school also was Mr. Fleming, who came from Shaler, of all places! With him came the striking red and white uniforms for the band. Born this same year was the annual Varsity Minstrel Show with its end men, beautiful girls, lively jokes, songs, and dances. 1938-The Sophomore year had arrived! The magazine campaign rewarded us with a basketball scoreboard. This new additio-n was a token of good fortune, for in that eventful year Millvale battled Etna for the local championship fwhich we are sorry to say we lostj. After a twofday session of examinations, the Sophomore class held its Mid' Year Frolic, with dancing and tables of fun for all who attended. This new idea proved quite successful. The Chieftain was founded that year, the great responsibility resting on the shoulders of Miss Oldham. Many were those students embarrassed by the inevitable "Chief C All" column. But joy alone did not prevail throughout the year, for it was during Christmas vacation that death claimed Mr. Gruber, one of our faculty members, wellfliked by all who knew him. Late in the spring a good time was had by all Sophs at an outing held at North Park. The Baton Club was organized for the purpose of training capable drum majorettes, who have since become renowned. 1939-We experienced students "set out on the last half of our school career. 2 Observed this year was the Sadie Hawkins' Day when a Li'l Abner and Daisy Mae w-ere chosen by popular election. A new group, the Crafts Club, founded by Miss Blackstone, gave each member a chance to display his talents in handicrafts. With the cold months came the knitting craze. Illness claimed many of the teachers during this time, and it was not surprising to find a "sub" at the head of many of the classes. An explosion in the Chem Lab added to the distress and caused the lengthy absence of Mr. Zimmer. Millvale was proud to be hosts to members of the P.S.M.A. Band Concert. The JuniorfSenior Prom, with "Gone With The Wind" at the theme, climaxed the year. 1940-Seniors at last, but we say this with a sigh of regret! We first turned our attention to electing the following class officers: Mary Heimbuecher, Thelma Raya, Dorothy Callahan, and Regis Leindecker. We have deeply appreciated the thoughtful guidance of our beloved sponsor, Miss Brennan, in our many problems. We are able at last, to say that Millvale has a football field which we owe to the untiring efforts of Mr. Swain, Mr. McCarthy, Mr. Tallman, and school board members. Having a football field gave the Seniors a chance to supply refreshments for the people and money for the class treasury. Perhaps inspired by this new field, the team had an undefeated season until the championship game with Masontown. Q The work of the Millvalean was undertaken by Dorothy Rumbaugh, editorg Thelma Rava, assistant editorg and Miss Beatty, adviser. Two new sports, wrestling and archery, were introduced to Millvale High. Two changes in the faculty brought us Miss Carnahan and Mr. Beyers. Although Baccalaureate and Graduation are past, we students of the Class of '41 will cherish forever fond memories of our four years. Page Thirty-four SENIOR FUTURESQUE In nursing Dot.

Of Oswald's fine clothes we never tire, In a few years his pictures will be in Esquire. Now in Los Angeles, now up to New York, To Milly, airfhostess, will be just a day's work.

Eleven men beyond reproach, Of these Zep will be the coach. In books Betty Jane Zisman can hold her ground, Working in a library she perhaps will be found. When Ev.

AUTUMN DANCE ORANGE and black crepe paper, skeleton heads, pumpkins, black cats, corn' stalks, blended with red and blue lights was a. pleasing atmosphere for an autumn dance. This annual affair welcomed the timid freshies who had been going around in a helterfskelter manner since the beginning of the new school term. Everyone was dressed in his best suit and dress while he danced to the rythmic music of many popular orchestras. To top this gala affair, delicious re' freshments were served. SEWING CLASS DANCE PATCHES, patches, and more patches, decorated the gym floor on November 15. Variety-Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Sammy Kaye-mixed with gaiety- dancing and laughter-is an essential feature to make any dance a success. And so it was. As usual refreshments were served, and everyone who attended this affair had an enjoyable evening.

However, there shall remain under its motherly wings, many, many more for you. Whether you are a quaking freshman, a spirited sophomore, or fwe hopej a self-assured junior . . . give some serious thought to your respective futures. It is not too late to analyze your' selves and your remarkable problems . . . to think about the attainment of that goal called SUCCESS! Once you have decided upon a definite course, do not swerve, do not sidestep any barriers. Our school, through the years, has unfailingly and indiscriminately offered us equal opportunities of knowledge and enlightenment, just as it had done to countless others before. Let us hope that its fidelity and generosity to us shall not be in vain. Let us hope that the infinite patience and tireless efforts of our teachers shall not have been fruitless. We should resolve, when our studies have been completed, to leave our school with gratitude in our hearts, and the strength in our bodies to farce what destiny holds in store for us. How proud our Alma Mater should be, when one day some of her children would accomplish something worthwhile, something outstanding and contributory to the betterment of our posterity. Already, there is a pang in our hearts at the thought of leaving its friendly halls, buzzing classrooms and solicitous teachers. It shall hurt us, too, to leave those undergraduates with whom it had been our good fortune to associate. It is with reluctance that we leave her friendly portals, but when we do, we hope that just one small wish of ours may be granted . . . we hope that she will leave her stately doors ajar . . . ajar just a little, so that our spirits may wander in, now and then, to reminisce and dream of the happy, neverfto'be'foi'gotten days spent here. So here's to YOU, Undergraduates! Accept our heartffelt best wishes in all of your undertakings. If our message shall even in a small way contribute to your wellfbeing, and possibly help to awaken some of you into a new determination to succeed, then we shall be content. In our hearts we shall know that our Alma Mater shall some day be PROUD of you! Sincerely, THE SENIOR CLASS. NICKEL DANCES A HURRIED lunch preceded the many dances held during the lunch hour - for the students were anxious to "cut the rug" before the inevitable required them to return to classes. Eagerly they tripped the light fantastic on the gym floor until the shrill ring of the bell bid the dancing party to end. In good spirits the students returned to classes with the hope of again enjoying this half hour of fun in the near future. FASHION SHOW MART attractive ensembles garbed the innumerable misses who brilliantly modeled beautiful costumes of their own creation. Sports clothing, street dresses, evening gowns-all examples of what the sewing class has done undner the competent instruction of 'Miss Louise Smith.

THE CLASS OF I9-H BAND THE Band is another of Millvale's prize possessions. If we were to contrast the band we have today with that of a few years ago, we couldn't appreciate enough the work Mr. Fleming has done to improve the musical ability of the students. This glowing spectacle of combined musicians, dressed in red and white uniforms, have displayed their skill at the football games, at home as well as awayg at school assemblies and at various high schools. They had the privilege on one occasion of playing at Forbes Field. Accompanied by West View and Springdale they presented a concert in the Millvale High auditorium. Several of its ablest students have had the privilege of participating in the AAfWestern P.S.M.A. Conf cert held annually at a different school. Each year the band is improving rapidly and we believe it has developed a commendable musical department of which the community may be proud. The Millvale, Springdale, West View Concert brought a gratifying attendance on Wednesday evening, February 12. The special arrangements, one of which was the renowned favorite "Comin' 'Round The Mountain" were a treat to hear, and the splash of color created by the uniforms added a festive touch to the scene. The junior Orchestra was also there to do its share toward the entertain- ment of the evening. Creating a 'pretty picture in their becoming evening gowns, the Girls' Chorus rendered several selections. Thelma Pschirer sang a solo part. The baton club gave an exhibition of twirling technique. Because of the untiring efforts of the three conductors, Richard L. Camp, of West View, Carl L. Bremer of Springdale, and our own Mr. Fleming, the evening was a definite success. THE BATON CLUB THE Baton Club has enjoyed its second successful year of providing entertain' ment for the school and the community. This sparkling group of baton twirlers arrayed in red and white uniforms, has won the admiration of Millvale and all who have seen them Under the supervision of Mr. Fleming, their director, the club has also mastered'ihe art of flag twirling. The members of this club include: Betty Murslack-drum major, Betty Alberth, Dorothy Andrisevic, Nancy Bechak, Dorothy Callahan, Ruth Haugh, Virginia Hayson, jean Hyde, Helen Nobbs, jane Lackey, Edna Lavsa, Evelyn Martig, Mildred Overand, Anne Poslusney, Dorothy Rheam, Jean Schiefelbein, Betty Jane Schmitt, Ardella Schaper, Betty Tritsch and Armella Ulrich. GlRL'S CHORUS THE Girl's Chorus is a pride and joy of Millvale. Since the beginning of the school year, September 1940, Girls' Chorus has been made a regular elective subject yielding one'half credit per year. Under the skillful guidance of Mr. Stanley Fleming, the chorus gives out with its grained harmonious voices renditions of a number of rather difficult selections. They have graciously participated at the Christmas assembly and also at the Band Concert. The Girls' Chorus and the student body have done much in showing their appreciation of the finer type of music. r ORCHESTRA THE orchestra made few public appearances throughout the year, but no time was wasted as Mr. Fleming, the conductor, spent many periods on the study of tone. As a result, the music the orchestra produced for the Senior Play was superior in this respect. .Their later appearances at the Fashion Show and Graduaf tion proved that this year for the orchestra has been one of outstanding progress. Page Fifty-nine IIII MIHX XII XX 'zixh THE CLASS OF 1941 OUR FORUM CLUB THE Forum Club was organized among the Senior P.O.D. classes and expanded until it engulfed the entire school. Through the sponsorship of the Forum Club we have had many informative as well as democratic "Forum Assemblies," where subjects such as "This Is Not Our War"-"Aid To Britain"-"Grades, Credits, and Reports"-"Our Crime Situation," and many others were intelligently discussed. Evening meetings were held with a. fair degree of success. Mr. Burgess, the sponsor, and Chris Traiche, the president, who received splendid cofoperation from an Advisory Board and class representatives, provided the impetus for the Forum movement in our school. We sincerely hope that in the future the Seniors will take this club and make a communityfwide organization of it. The active members were: Nancy Bechak, Marion Blumer, Ruth Cerny, Berneita Duffey, Ray Fleming, Virginia Fleming, Tom Gross, Mary Heimbuecher, Mary Elizabeth Keller, Priscilla Lentz, Mildred McClaren, Thelma Rava, john Reiners, Dorothy Rumbaugh, Francis Staus, and Winifred Thompson. VARSITY CLUB THE Varsity Club whose purpose is to stimulate and maintain athletics by enthusiastic cooperation and sacrifice was organized in '35 by Coach McCarthy. Before acceptance into the club, a person must have earned a letter in a major sport and be in good standing. This year the club sponsored a dance at the Schenley Hotel which replaced the usual annual rninstrel show. The proceeds of the dance were turned over to th football team to 'pay for injuries and various other expenses. The officers for the past school term were: Robert Zeppuhar, President, Carl Seidl, SecretaryfTreasurer: and the members: Albert Rosendick, William Rakers, James Lawson, Carl Hoak, Robert Bluernling, Elmo Marasti, James Shields, Carl Seidl, Regis Randig, Harry Klaas, Robert Zeppuhar, Frank Munson, John Cunic, Paul Lambert, Joseph Pusateri, and Paul Mihlfried. ATHLETIC CLUB THE Athletic Club with Miss Wetzel as organizer, is quite an active group. Their meetings are held when there is anything definite to be done or dis' cussed. In groups they go roller skating at various rinks and during the winter, ice skating at North Park. Hikes are another one of their healthful activities. They have staged one of the best assemblies of the year, a "Gay Nineties Program." The officers include: Marie Beran, presidentg Elsie Witzorreck, vice presidentg Rose Rudar, treasurerg and Eleanor Franke, secretary. The active members are: Dorothy Andrisevic, Dorothy Bauer, Nancy Bechak, Marion Blumer, Betty Born, Marion Brown, Catherine Budacki, Dorothy Callahan, Mary Canonico, Ruth Cummings, Catherine DeBannes, Arrnella Derringer, Mary Ali-ce Dezort, Grace Eichler, Evelyn Finster, Marcella Gollob, Mildred Grimpe, Evelyn Healy, Irma Heck, Mary Heimbuecher, Dorothy Jeskey, Rose Marie Kapp, Mildred Overand, Helen Nobbs, Marie Knockel, Mercedes Lunz, Mildred McClaren, Dorothy Penisch, Catherine Pickl, Thelma Rave, Dorothy Ritter, Henrietta Schlag, Grace Schrass, Betty Schroeffel, Rita Schroeffel, Olive Senk, Florence Stoneward, Pearl Shiring, Rose Struna, Evelyn Srusko, Wini-fred Thompson, Armella Ulrich, Lucille Vecenie, Betty Wilkes, Dolores Wittman, Eileen Zeller, Evelyn Zovko.

THE CLASS OF 1941 HI-Y THE HifY consists of a group of elected boys who are an asset to our school. These youths meet once a month to discuss business matters and plan activities intelligently. In the past they have held many successful dances, taken informative trips, and competed with other clubs playing basketball. This year the Hi-Y, sponsored by Mr. Sprenger, has been under the able leadership of Bernard Beran, with Ray Piefer as vice president, Robert Imgrund as secretary, and Carl Siedel 3.5 f1"63Sl1I'6I'. RIFLE CLUB THIS year the Rifle Club was one of the most active organizations in the school. The sponsor of the club, Mr. Beyers, aroused the competitive spirit of the members by arranging matches with the rifle teams of other schools. Matches were fired with Cakmont, Mt. Lebanon, Etna, and Munhall. The club also par' ticipated in the Hearst matches and completed targets bi'weekly for the National Rifle Association. Some of the members won medals for high scoring on their individual targets. At the end of the year, the one having the highest score was rewarded with a medal. This year the honor went to the president of the Boys' Club, Robert Imgrund. The secretaryftreasurer of the Boys' Club was Edward Wokut+ch. The officers of the Girls' Club were Olive Senk, president, and Rita Hayson, SCCI'Ct3.1'y't1'EH.5llI'9I'. CRAFTS CLUB THE Crafts Club enjoyed its second year of existence at Millvale under the competent direction of Miss 'Carnahan, the instructor. This young group of skillful craftsmen have learned to make various trinkets such as wooden trays and colorful belts as well as do a bit of metal tapping. The group includes Ruth Cerny, president, Annette Cohen, secretary: and Catherine DeBannes, Dorothy Jeskey, Marie Knockel, Marilyn Lipp, Mildred McClaren, Wilamalleene Miller, Jean Northey, Rose Marie Pfister, Dolly Schermock, Geraldine Schwartz, Evelyn Schmitt, Bernadette Steedle, Emma Velich, Gloria Werner, and Elsie Witzorrock. NEWSPAPER GGHAVE you heard the latest?" "Did you know that?" "I would never have dreamed that." All these expressions may be heard at noon time following an issue of the Chieftain-the paper which contains gossip, announcements of the future activities, special features, timely essays, names of honor students, and a few laughs. The responsibility for the Chieftain's success rests upon the able shoulders of Miss Oldham, adviser, and the cofeditors Mary Heimbuecher and Elsie Witzorreck. The "news hawks" are: Dorothy Andrisevic, Dorothy Bauer, Nancy Bechak, Mary Conrad, James Gutcher, Bertha Fink, Virginia Fleming, Ruth Haugh, Jean Hyde, Mary Elizabeth Keller, Geraldine Lang, Sue McNerney, Edith Miller, Dorothy Rumbaugh, Betty Jane Schmitt, Geraldine Schwartz, Lilian Shepeta, Rose Struna, Chris Traiche and Mercedes Zimmer. The nimble fingers of Catherine Budacki, Gloria Gloor, Regina Kaib, Thelma Rava, Anna May Schafer, Marion Schermock, Betty Jane Schmitt, Rita Schroeffel, Florence Stoneward and Eileen Zeller type the entire paper. One can always depend on good sports writefups when john Diller and Walter Servatius are on the job. Round and round goes the mimeograph when Bob Imgrund, Rose Rudar, Evelyn Finster, and Grace Schrass get started. Circulation is operated by Ray Emerick, Paul Knauer, and john Breitenbaugh. The stencils are ably taken care of by Marie Beran, Virginia Bossing, Ruth Cerny, Mary O'Brien and Eileen Ruzomberka.

With seven wins and two ties they ran up enough points to become a contender for the W.P.I.A.L. Class B title. The only other conf testant for the title was the strong Masontown team. In a playoff game at Etna, Masontown, a much heavier team, defeated Millvale for the title. The 1940 team will go down in history as one of the best ever developed, and therefore, the boys deserve a vote of thanks for their splendid efforts. The following is the season record for 1940: Millvale 0 ffffffffffff- West View O Millvale 6 f f f ffff East McKeesport O Millvale 14 - f f f Etna 0 Millvale 12 f - 1 Freedom 6 Millvale 13 f f Avalon O Millvale 13 f f Aspinwall O Millvale 0 f f f Sihaler 0 Millvale 17 f f Avonworth 6 Millvale 22 ffff f Edgewood 0 ikMillvale O fffff f Masontown 26 Won 7-Lost 1-Tied 2. fW.P.I.A.L. Playoff Game. To Coach joseph McCarthy, and Assistants Kirk Tallman and William Beyers we extend our heartiest congratulations and thanks for the Hue team they turned out this year. With such a coaching staff, we can be sure that Millvale High School will never be at the bottom of the list in sports. The greatest event at Millvale this year was the opening of a brand new football Held. Located on a hill a short distance from the school, it is considered one of the best high school fields in the district. The field was scheduled to be ready for the first game of the season, but heavy rains and slides delayed the completing. However, the work was rushed, and amid speeches and music by the band, the field was dedicated the night of the Etna game, which Millvale won 14f0. All home games were played at night under the best lighting system of any high school field in this district. HON ORED IVIILLVALEANS THE Varsity Club is indebted to our townsmen Mr. Cohen, Mr. Wellinger, and Doctor Baldwin for the gold awards they so generously presented to the seniors of our school teams. Their interest in our school is a stimulant to the players and the student body as well. Page Sixty-eight THE CLASS OF 1941 OUR VARSITY LETFERMEN Robert Zeppuhar-END-This was Zep's first year on the "Varsity Eleven," but he played his 'position at left end like a veteran, scoring a touchdown on a pass in the Etna game. Harry Klaas-TACKLE-Harry was the heaviest man on the team, and that extra weight proved a despair to enemy linemen, for when Harry hits them they stay hit! Regis Randig-GUARD-Rudy was the renowned Captain of the Chieftains this year,, and he assumed this responsibility as well as he played his position as guard. He was the smallest man on the varsity, but the -boys dub him as the toughest. Carl Seidl-CENTER-Si's splendid work as center and his fine defensive play have undoubtedly insured him a position for next year. james Shields-GUARD-jim was one of the best defensive players on the team. There were very few gains made through his position. Frank Munson-TNCKLE-Frank was one of the heaviest members of our team and one of the hardest tacklers. Munson was always one of the first to get his man. joe Pusateri-END-This was joe's first year on the varsity, but he made up for his lack of experience with his fine work on the right end of the line. We can expect a lot of joe in the future. John Cunic-END-Mex is another first year man who has done exceedingly well. His best game was at Avalon where it seemed every tackle was made by No. 38, alias Mex. Elmo Marasti-TAGKLE-Moose played fullback last year, but moving him to the line was no mistake. He kicked the 'first fieldfgoal made by a Millvale High team in ten years. Paul Lambert-END-This was Doc's Hrst year in Millvale, but he made a fine showing at his end post. A lot will be heard of this Lambert boy in the near future. Bob Bluemling-END-The Chieftains were blessed with a surprising number of en-ds this year, but that didn't stop Pete from being in there giving all for his Alma Mater. Bob's line defense work will certainly be missed next year. Paul Mihlfried-TACKLE--Tall, quiet Milky is bashful where girls are con- cerned, but on the gridiron enemy linemen get out of his way. Many an opposif tion player found Paul a solid block in the Millvale line. james Lawson-QUARTERBACK-jungle is one of those rare members of a football team-a fourfyear man. He played center in his first two years, but in his Junior year he was moved to quarterback where he certainly became a star. Jungle was noted for his punting. Karl Hoak-LEFT HALFBACK-Cal was the "brains" of the team-the fellow who called the plays. He excelled in short plunges and in passing. Ed Miklaucic-RIGHT HALFBACK-"Eta" was one of the inest broken field runners Millvale had. In the Avalon game he broke away twice for runs of over fifty yards. V Bill Rakers-FULLBACK-They called him "BonefCrusher", and how he lived up to it! When all 135 pounds of him hit an enemy line, he went through. And, when he got out in the open, he was as slippery as an eel. Millvale fans are going to hear a lot of Butch Rakers in the future. Al Rosendick-HALFBACK-Al is one of the best runners in the Millvale backfield. His weight makes -him one of the greatest assets in Chieftain power plays. and when punting is concerned, Rosey's alwavs there! Ellsworth Gosnell-GUARD-Goss had a bad break at the beginning of the season when he broke a rib, consequently, he was forced to be inactive. When he did participate, though, he really played a good game. SUBSTITUTES To our substitutes Michael Fodi, George Marlovits, Ray Emerick, Roy Kremmel, Bernard Beran, Harry Munson, Earl Waltz, Charles Schermock, Elmer Steinsdorfer, Paul Breitenbaugh, jack Stout, Paul Knauer, James Lawson, Emil Heintzinger, and Robert Pfund we are deeply grateful for their fine cooperation.

The team, under Mr. Howard's guidance, won three matches this year and are looking forward to a much better season next year because only one regular member of the squad is graduating. With a little moral support, the boys hope to give to wrestling some of the popularity which football and basketball share at Millvale High. Under the official point system the individual scores are as follows: Tom Gross fffff 32 Harry Munson f-ff 18 ,Iohn Breitenbach f f 28 Jerome Kremer f li Paul Lambert - f 22 Joseph Petti f f 10 Tom McGinley f 20 john Cunic f 10 Frank Munson f 20 john Saul f S ARCHERY CLUB THIS group of Robinhoods was organized for the first time this year by Miss Wetzel. Up to the football Held each Monday and Thursday afternoon they would hurriedly strut, as this was when they displayed their skill. At a distance of about forty yards they would shoot their arrows into the bull's eye for the hilly Bertha Fink and Olive Senk were chosen as the leaders. Other participants were: Rose Babic, Marie Beran, Lorraine Gaus, Sally Kennedy, Violet Lang, Bartholomae Mikus, Rose Rudar, Dolly Schermock, Marion Schermock, Adele Weir, and Evelyn Zovko. BOVV LING LEAGUE CRASH! With a resounding clatter a strike is made and a feminine cry of delight is heard. Yesffor the first time in Millvale Highs history, girls were permitted to join the bowling league, which up to this year was strictly reserved for boys. Although the girls' bowling wasn't quite what it could have been, they enjoyed it immensely. The boys seemed to thrive on their company and many high scores were recorded. In all, it was well worth the effort required. Page Seventy-two i l 'l'llIf VIASS Ol llll Watch "Closely Archery 'S Better Fvihf-5 We 're the Bowfefb' Ye al Red ! Yeag White!
