Your heart is full of kindness and your head is full of brain, That's the way we think of you, our Principal, Mr. Swain. By teaching us to correctly use verbs and prepositions, Miss Bargman has helped us get promising positions. Rationing is the fashion these days we are told, Miss Beatty's counsel isn't rationed, it's pure gold. As slim as his test tubes and as staunch and as sturdy, Mr. Beyers makes geometry figures work out in a hurry. As Chieftain adviser and teacher of j.B.T., Mrs. Billock's duties keep her as busy as a bee. As Senior sponsor Miss Brennan to us appeals, For all that she teaches contains high ideals. With fire in his eyes and paper in his hand, Mr. Burgess teaches us the problems of our land. Since she is nurse, you can bet, Mrs. Depp- To the tricks of the hooky players will soon be "hep." Mr. Fleming's patient and guiding hand, Develops confidence and harmony in our band. From Mrs. Gardner we learn in grammar, To guard our lips and not to stammer. Miss Garver coaches our girls chorus, By singing well they do not bore us. Mrs. Graham teaches us in art, "Don't draw the horse before the cart." Mr. Howard's shop with his classes is tops, The quest for perfection never, never stops. Miss johnston's library is so bright and sunny, Classmates in there can't help feel quite chummy. An excellent coach to the boys on the team it is true, Mr. McCarthy we like to learn our history from you. With sugar and spices and satins and laces, Miss Smith's classes help girls get places. I Mr. Sprenger, your knowledge of the old, your teaching of the new Your sober manner doesn't fool us, for we know you're just you. As shorthand and typing from Mr. Tallman are learned, Aviation too saves time, when your wings you have earned. Neither English nor biology nor health nor "gym," Can take from Miss Wetzel her vigor and vim.

Knock! Knock! echoed our slight tapping on the door. As we waited to gain admittance, the inscription on the swinging sign above us was barely visible, yet with a slight movement of a hand the dust was brushed off and once again the lettering was readable, "Madame Zombie, Astrologistf' By this time, approaching footsteps could be heard stirring within, and a mysteriously clad figure slowly opened the door. After taking one look at this eccentric creature, we contemplated whether we should satisfy our curiosity or notg but with his hypnotic stare, we could make no decision of our own. At last he accompanied us to a remote corner of the house where Madame Zombie's headquarters were situated. Through a hidden power of its own, the door swung open inviting us to enter. As we entered, our eyes took in the scene before us. Heavy curtains of every color were draped from one corner to the other, and two candles gave off a faint flicker of light. In the center of the room going over charts and records sat Madame Zombie herself. Suddenly the still silence was broken by her high-pitched crackling voice that resounded 'from one corner to the other till finally it faded off into the thickness of the draperies. "Come in 'and take your seats around the table, and I shall tell you what the stars hold for the Class of '43." If you were born during the month of january, you are a practical, philosophical, talented somebody. You can idle away time if your enthusiasm wanes in tasks.

SENIOR A, B, Cis The alphabet plays an important part in our everyday lives-even in our speech: "Watch your P's and Q's", "It's as simple as A, B, C", and many other common phrases prove this. Even now in these trying days, filled with many of the complexities of life, we are using the alphabet,-going so far as to use it in our rationing system. For this reason, the alphabet has been chosen as the basis for a review of our Seniors. Page Thirty-four stands for Activeness. The busyfbees of M. H. S. are V. Mihlfried, R. Pfund, and J. Wolfarth. stands for Beauty. While this attribute is easily found among the maidens of M. H. S., for the sake of simplicity, it has been narrowed down to A. Poslusney, J. Schiefelbein, and M. Schoenian. stands for Charm. And our four charming seniors are P. Peindl, R. Babic, L. Gross, and I. Heck. stands for Dwarfs. Through the halls of M. H. S. trip these elves: M. Pavkovich, R. Bennett, M. Wilkes. stands for Eyes. It seems as though the female iris is not appreciated, for the most entrancing eyes belong to F. Mrak, J. Blobner, R. Heuler, and F. Pschirer. stands for Fooling. If we were to ask the teachers, they might say that we all fool too much. But the following people seem to be quite adept at whiling their time away in such a manner. They are J. Petti, L. Ostrum, B. Haser. and P. Heil. stands for Gentlemanly. Our dashing Sir Walter Raleighs are H. Dott, H. Bearl, and A. Fleming. stands for Handsome. Naturally all the boys are good looking just as all the girls are beautiful, but for the same reason that we picked only three girls, we have picked only three boys. These handsome lads are R. Bossing, J. Cunic, and R. Funk. stands for Initiative. Although the boys have the prettiest eyes, the girls have all the initiative, and they are T. Dieter, M. Kumpfmiller, and T. Pschirer. stands for Jollity. You will always find these smiling and ready for fun: J. Aufman, L. Schmidt, M. Huerbin, and E. DeBrestle. stands for Kindliness. The four kind souls in M. H. S. are M. Schwab, N. Schultz, R. Walters, and E. Pschirer. stands for Loyalty. Those students chosen to represent this characteristic are R. Strafalace, R. Pusateri, N. Imhof, and D. Rheam. stands for Music. We will long re- member N. Boss, N. Pfister, and F. 'Munson for their musical artistry. stands for Napping. The three out' standing "snoozers" of our class are I. Pschirer, M. Klug, and A. Colville. stands for Originality. In one way or another, everyone is original, but alas! everyone's originality is not apprec' iated. The following are our most original seniors: S. Lache, B. Born, C. Williams, and B. Walter. stands for Perseverance. No matter how difficult the task, B. Riddlebaugh, C. Staus, J. Hite, and M. Leonetti stick to it until it is finished. stands for Quietness. Of course, all seniors are noiselessl, but B. Lunz, M. Matakovich, G. Koelsch, and A. Bissert are as quiet as mice. stands for Radiance. The dictionary defines radiance as lustre. The follow' ing indeed have shining personalities: A. Ulrich, C. Pickl, D. Voit, and J. Stout. stands for Sports. We have thrilled to them in basketball and football. They are our outstanding athletes: W. Rakers, P. Knauer, J. Pusateri. stands for Tallness. Many of our graduates will reach "the heighth of their ambitions", but few will reach the heighth already attained by E. King, E. Miller, and D. Sipple. stands for Usefulness. Claiming this position are R. Porr, W. Leahy, and L- Canter. stands for Vim and Vigor, and J. Breitenbaugh, O. Senk, and M. Thomas have plenty of it. stands for Willingness to help. No matter what the task or how difficult it may be, H. Burke, E. Waltz, and K. Bauer are always willing to help in any way they can. stands for "X-cellence" that is found in all of us. Who knows, even you may be a "diamond in the rough." stands for Youth. The youngest mem' bers of our class are E. Geyer, R. Barkovich, D. Parolski, and R. Lambert. stands for Zeilfelder. She is the only "Z" in our senior class. If it weren't for good old Louise, we couldn't finish this alphabet.

The Seniors were the first to entertain, and the Freshmen followed their footsteps. Ask anyone and you may get this for an answer- "Couldn't have had a better time!"-so it proves Only t0O Well how much skating parties are enjoyed. Page Fifty-two WE HEAR AMERICA SINGING The orchestra under the able direction of Stanley T. Fleming has done it again! Something new has come to the halls of 'Millvale High-an assembly held every Thursday morning called "We Hear America Singing". Here students raise their voices loud and clear to the strains of songs, old and new. Mr. Fleming has realized that singing is a great morale builder and certainly in these war times we are in need of such an emotional outlet. Singing such songs as "Onward Christian Soldiers", and the theme songs of the various branches of the armed forces. The assembly has opened with the reading of a passage from the Bible, followed by the Lord's Prayer, flag salute, and the singing of our national anthem. We hope that this will continue through the years at Millvale High, and that other schools may follow in our footsteps. GOING HOME 'lout of the chill and the shadow, Into the thrill and the shine, Out of the dearth and the famine, Into the fullness divinef' MARGARET E. SANGSTER. In memory of Mary Himber, a member of the Class of '44, who died in October, 1942. JUNIOR ASSEMBLY After having promised one "slapfhappy" assembly, the Juniors presented the student body with a "howl" of a show. The audience, as well as the ones taking part in the assembly, had a chance to show their talents. There were jokes, songs, monologues, one dramaticfllj play, solos by student instrumentalists and vocalists, and to top it all, the "Truth or Consequence Show", where the various students took part. This event was surely one that we will remember in years to come-it's one of those things that make our high school years memorable. HI-Y DANCE This year the students were happy to find one of the HifY dances open to all instead of the traditional private aifair. However, one private dance was held for the entertainment of the members only and their outside guests. All who attended both affairs remarked at the fine entertainment provided. The success of these affairs encouraged participation in the rest of the gay events of the year. HALLOWEEN PARTY The privilege of starting the year with a "bang!" went to the Freshmen when they held a private Hallowe'en party. While witches and gobblins danced on high, Mr. Howard acted as master of ceremonies, giving prizes to the one with the funniest and most original costumes and also leading the Freshies in all the games they played. As seen through the eyes of the guests, the party was a great success. Page Fifty-three SMX HOW SMH!

This event is attended not only by students, but also the town's people. The smart, attractive ensembles were modeled by the girls of the sewing classes, under the skillful direction of Miss Louise Smith. The sport clothing, street and school dresses, and evening gowns were made during the class periods only. Besides making these fashionable outfits, each girl was required to remodel some discarded garment. Again the fashion parade was highflighted by two bridal parties-the cotton wedding and the silk wedding. Lois Ostrum, bride of the cotton wedding, was dressed in a crisp white eyelet gown, a fingerftipped veil adorned her coiffure. The bridegroom and best man were Bill Rakers and Bob Kinnen respectively. Lois' attendants were: Sylvia Lache as maid of honor, and Elva Ruth Miller, Bernardine Lunz, Eleanor Geyer, Margaret Matakovich as bridesmaids. Ann Poslusney, dressed in a brocaded white satin gown and a long flowing veil led the silk wedding attended by bridegroom Bob Rakers, Joe Pusateri, best man, Mary Zeppuhar, maid of honor, and Thelma Pschirer and Dolores Lunz as bridesmaids. Attending both wedding parties were Ronald Poslusney, as ring bearer, attired in a white satin suit, and Donna Lee Genter, as flower girl dressed in a blue embroidered, eyelet pique gown. Gloria Werner made the weddings complete by singing "I Love You Truly" and "O Promise Me." WE'LL NEVER FORGET Miss Young, our efficient and cofoperative secretary for willingly helping us in time of need, seeking us when we were wanted in the office for "important" business, mimeographing our tests and greeting us cheerfully in the mornings- injecting us with the desire to start the day right. Our handy custodians, 1Mr. Hildebrand and Mr. Gauss for offering a helping hand in keeping our school spotless, filling our school supplies when they were exhausted, being repairmen when the occasion demanded and making the school cozy for us on dismal mornings. CI-IIEFTAIN "At last, the Chieftain's coming," or "Hurrah, something to talk about," may be heard shouted about the ever popular Chieftain-our school paper. Since the vital materials needed to carry on the paper were hard to obtain, the paper was issued for only one semester. The able adviser, Mrs. Billock, and editor Ruth Lambert, with the help of the entire staff have made the Chieftain one of the most talked about affairs at school. The clever cartoons and catchy headings were the work of our artists B. Born and E. Schiebelg the society and fashion editors were D. Sipple, Marie and Agnes Pecjakg while the "over a coke" column was handed by D. Grego and J. Houlahan. J. Aufman and K. Bauer were the skillful reporters of the thrilling sports accounts. The news of the school was most capably taken care of by the following news reporters: L. Gross, G. Werner, M. Lipp, Jim and Phil Gittings, B. Walter, M. Schoenian, C. Pickl, B. Riddlebaugh, J. Russell, M. Wilkes, W. Leahy, B. Martig, and H. Bearl. The efficient typists and mimeographers, always on the job, were M. Kumpfmiller, R. Strafalace, G. Koelsch, T. Dieter, A. Ulrich, E. Pschirer, D. Voit, L. Schmidt, M. Pavkovich, and R. Babic. Peg e Fifty-six Ctivities Ima X1 SX X, X Page BATON CLUB Dashing, high stepping figures of the Baton Club, arrayed in dazzling outfits, are led by our charming drum major, Armella Ulrich. Their graceful movements and tricky stunts are the results of the many hours of faithful practice with their batons and red and white flags. The Baton Club leading the M.H.S.'s Band is one of the schools greatest assets. The members include: Armella Ulrich, Jean Schiefelbein, Ann Poslusney, Dolly Lunz, Mary Ann Sarkis, Agnes Pecjak, Marie Pecjak, Delores McCloskey, Grace Hayson, Celine Bluemling, Lois Zwicker, Dorothy Heintzinger. BAND "Give credit where credit is due" may well be applied to our band. In their fascinating new uniforms they may be seen marching down our field, at Forbes Field, or at any gala parade to the tune of "Johnny Get Your Gun" and many other snappy numbers. This year the members of the band have cheered our boys on the field to victories with songs that are favorites of everyone. Our own "Cassey" has proved a delight to the community as well as the spectators at the games, and they keep screaming for more! This shows the popularity of our band in only one of the many ways. K Mr. Fleming and also the members of the band have spent many extra hours diligently and patiently, so that they may claim these honors. To every member of the band we Seniors wish you continued success in the future. GIRLS' CHORUS Since the departure of Mrs. Elliot, Miss Garver has taken over the task of directing the Girls Chorus, and has handled it very successfully. This year the melodious songs of the Chorus were featured at the TrifBorough' Concert, Christmas Assembly, Baccalaureate and Commencement. The "warblers" include: Grace Hayson, Ruth Lambert, Laura Kress, Rose Barkovich, Jean Bertram, Anna M. Bissert, Leona Ganter, Mary Margaret Klug, Sylvia Lache, Sylvia Manupelli, Dorothy Martig, Elva Ruth Miller, Rosalia Moeller, Dolores McCloskey, Ruth Porr, Eleanor Pschirer, Dorothy Rheam, Lillian Schmidt, Gloria Werner, and Jean Wolfarth. Page Fifty-nine Page Sixiy HLY CLUB One club that has come down through the years with respect and honor by all boys is the Hi-Y. The club is under the able leadership of Mr. Sprenger, who is present at all the club's activities. Several dances have been sponsored by the Hi-Y where the boys have not only entertained the members of Millvale High but their friends from other schools as well. The membership includes: President, jack Aufman, VicefPresident, jack Stoutg Secretary, Robert Funk, Treasurer, Norbert Imhof and also the following members: Ralph Bossing, john Breitenbaugh, Paul Heil, Jack Hite, Floyd Hubstenberger, Paul Knauer, Robert Kremer, Thomas Stout, Frank Mrak, Harry Munson, William Nauman, Norman Pfister, Robert Pfund, Harry Pschirer, Robert Rakers, William Rakers, Robert Riley, Harold Sadwick, joseph Wellinger, Mitchael Georgalas. SENIORETTES The familiar phrase of "something new has been added" may be applied to the Seniorette Club. Composed entirely of Senior girls, this club is somewhat a continuation of the "Cirls' Athletic Association" and is again under the leader- ship of -Miss Wetzel. The girls in this club got together and enjoyed many pleasant hours seeing shows in Pittsburgh and made an unforgettable trip to the Buhl Planetarium. A number of gatherings were held at Miss Wetzel's home where the members greatly enjoyed each others companionship and the wonderful fudge for which Mrs. Wetzel may someday become famous. On one occasion was the farewell surprise party for Helen Burke, a member, who left us to go in training as a nurse. An outing ended an unforgettable year. The officers were: President, R. Babicg Vice President, B. Riddlebaughg Secretary, P. Peindlg Treasurer, J. Wolfarth. Other members included: A. Bissert, B. Born, H. Burke, T. Dieter, L. Gross, B. Haser, I. Heck, M. Heurbin, M.

Strafalace, A. Ulrich, D. Voit, M. Wilkes, L. Zeilfelder, B. Walter. VARSITY CLUB The Varsity Club includes those boys who were athletic enough to claim the coveted award, the letter "M," They have displayed their skill as athletes on both the field and floor. The club was sponsored by Mr. McCarthy and Mr. Tallman who were the coaches of football and basketball respectively. Since the change in the traditional distribution of sweaters occurred, the boys were quite disappointed not to receive oneg but they were quite satisfied with their gold footballs and basketballs and treasured them dearly. The members were: J. Cunic, F. Munson, P. Knauer, J. Stout, J. Breitenbaugh, J. Pusateri, R. Rakers, W. Williams, R. Pfund, F. Binder, H. Munson, C. Chambers, S. Cohen, J. Aufman, F.

S. is our indispensable library where a staff of girls assist the librarian in rendering a helpful service to the students. On hand two periods a week, Mary Pavkovich, Rose Babic, Margie Wilkes, Edna Mae Giger, Adele Weir, Wilmalleene Miller, Mary jane Vogel, Marilyn Lipp, Virginia Mussen, Charlotte Rothmeyer, Dolores McCloskey, Alberta Vecenie, Gloria Werner, Annette Cohen and Jeanne Krapf prove their worthiness to our librarian, Miss Johnston. The work performed by these girls is a constant round of activity such as shelving books, keeping records of over' due books and book fines, answering questions fWhat is a good book to read? Is this a good book for freshies?j and helping underclassmen with reference questions. The highflight of the season really comes when the Book Week Tea is held alternately at Millvale and Etna High Schools. At these gatherings the librarians from each school attend and become well acquainted. Such commendable work as these girls render is beneficial to all of us, and it deserves some hearty recognition. CHEERLEADERS No camera could capture the peppy effervescent moods of the gay cheer' leaders, who have definitely won a place in our minds as we talk and think of our football players. These girls-Betty Riddlebaugh, Marjorie Wilkes, Mary Pavkovich, Rose Strafalace, Pearl Peindl, and Grace Mihlfried-as they may be seen fighting and urging our boys on to victories, make us feel as though we had a real part in the game! BOWLING CLUB "Up on alley four!" is a cry often heard on Monday afternoons. Then with a swing of the arm, the ball goes straight down the alley and "bang" goes a strike! "Good Deal!" a voice from the back shouts, and the next member enthusiastically takes his turn. Robert Bennett was the club's able leader for the first half of the bowling season, and Steve Ceh carried on successfully for the second half. Mr. Fleming was chosen as sponsor. Each week dues were paid so that at the end of the bowling season the bowlers celebrated their victories. The teams having the names of wellfknown colleges such as Duquesne, Duke, Notrg Dame, Penn State, Pitt, and Carnegie Tech had the following as their mem ers: J. Aufman, M. Voit, A. Ulrich, D. Voit, C. Pickl, M. Zeppuhar, V. Mihlfried, R. Brown, D. McCloskey, H. Sadwick, H. Shaufl, A. Pfister, W. Leahy, L. Gross, R. Lamber, F. Pschirer, G. Penisch, A. Vicinie, -M. Schwab, K. Bauer, M. A. Brunner, E. M. Cornely, H. Burke, O. Senk, J. Weber, I. Heck, and G. Koelsch. The captains of these teams were: F. Mrak, S. Ceh, Lawson, R. Bennett, R. Kramer, and H. Franke. ' ' Page Sixty-five VVAR BRINGS MANY CHANGES TO M. H. S. There is probably no corner of the world that has not been affected by World War II in one way or another and our Alma Mater has proved no exception. In order to keep abreast with the times, new courses have been added to our curriculum. Aeronautics was the first one of this group to be followed later by Aviation Math. frequired of all Sr. boysJ and courses including Radio and Morse Code. Each Thursday afternoon rhythmic marching may be heard from the gym floor as many of our junior and senior boys, learning not only how to march properly but also the art of handling a gun, carry out the snappy commands of an R. O. T. C. officer from Pitt. Such training is bound to be of help in War or peace! At the beginning of the second semester our first Senior, Bob Bennett, left us to join the Navyg a few days later Helen Burke left her Senior class to begin nurses training. Later in the semester Frank Munson, Ken Bauer, Joe Petti, and john Cunic enlisted. The biggest "gap" was left in the class in March when thirteen of our members Cpictured abovej left to attend trade school preparing for defense jobs such as welding, drafting, machine shop, sheet metal work, pipe fitting, etc. Undoubtedly, one of the most touching assemblies ever held in our audi' torium occurred on March 4 when we bid goodfbye to our beloved coach, Mr. McCarthy who left us to become a Lieutenant Junior Grade in the Navy. Many of us found ourselves with new schedules and different teachers as a result of this change. All in all this class of '43 has probably seen more changes than any other Senior class could boast of. Many of these have not been too happy, but we are still most thankful to be members of this class in a school which is still unscathed by shells or bombs!

The accomplishments of the 1942 squad will take their place along side those of past teams as some of the brightest ever attained. In winning seven and losing two of a stiff, ninefgame schedule, the Indians distinguish themselves as one of the best of Millvale teams. Directed by coach McCarthy, who was ably assisted by Mr. Tallman and Mr. Beyers, the 1942 aggregation will long be remembered for its very satisfactory performance. Nine rahs for the team ! ! ! Are you ready? Let's go ! I ! JOSEPH PUSATERI-Left End joe, a steady, hardfworking player, consistantly outfran enemy backersfup to make sensational catches of long forward passes. This offensive ability, along with line defensive play, combined to rate Joe a fourth-string berth on the :illfW.P.I.A.L. team of stars. JOHN CUNIC-Left Tackle "Mex," the huskiest man on the team, standing six feet high and weighing one hundred and ninety pounds, is surprisingly fast afoot. A hard tighter and able performer, John was a valuable block in the little "seven blocks of granite." His fighting spirit which the Marines now claim will surely be missed next year. Page Sixty-nine FRANK MUNSON-Left Guard Frank, a seasoned veteran, always managed to get his man. He was im' movable in the left guard slot, and enemy quarterbacks seldom directed a line plunge at his position. When they did, however, Frank was always ready, willing and able to throw back the attempt. . ROBERT RAKERS-Center Center position supposedly a weak spot was ably taken care of by "Hobe" until his injury in the Aspinwall game forced him out of action for the remainder of the season. "Hobe's" accurate passing of the ball and fine defensive play will make him an invaluable asset to next year's eleven of which he is to be captain. HARRY MUNSON-Right Guard "Huntz" proved a durable barrier to enemy backs who tried to break through his position. A fast and -experienced Junior, he will evidently be a valuable asset to the Indian forward wall next season. "Huntz" even carried the ball on one variation of the flonker play. FRANK BINDER-Right Tackle Frank is as scrappy a player as any coach would wish for, and his peppery chatter and words of encouragement made him a sparkfplug of the team. He could "take it" and "dish it out," as his opponents well knew. Too bad next season won't Hnd him sparking another Indian team to victory. JOHN BREITENBAUGH-Quarterback A bundle of dynamite is "Pinky," one of the best blockers on the Chieftain squad. His unerring sense of judging distance tended to make him an excellent pass receiver. "Pinky," signalfbarker of the Warriors, filled the quarterback position with admirable skill and diligence. He will be sadly missed on the grid next season. ROBERT PFUND-Fullback "Scorp," a hard plunger, was always dependable in getting those bitterly contested yards that make first downs. His shoulder injury in the Aspinwall game forced 'him out of action until the final game. A sensational catch of a long forward pass against Avalon was his outstanding play of the season. IOHN STOUT-Right Half "jimmy" was the versatile man of the squad, for he played every position in the backlield with amazing skill. His rapidity in handling the ball made him one of the fastest men on the team. Jimmy's performance at fullback against North Catholic will long be remembered as one of his outstanding achievements. PAUL KNAUER-Right Half A speedy stepper and excellent kicker made "Elbows" a standout in his position. His exquisite punting was a match for the best any enemy kicker could offer. Paul has been credited with a fine job of faking and hiding the ball on trick plays. This distinctive skill marked him as a vital member of our spirited team. WILLIAM RAKERS-Captain-Left Back A veteran of four years of football at Millvale, Billy was an indispensable cog in the Indian offense, while his outstanding defensive ability made him a fine allfround "back," Bill was always dangerous, his brokenffield running and fast, unexpected breakways made him an ever potential scoring threat. Page Seventy CHARLES CHAMBERS-Right End i This year found "Bo" taking over right end duties on the first team, a job in which he proved his lcapabilities. A quiet, steady worker he was a great asset to the right side of the line. "Bo" still has another football season to look forward to, and we're sure he will prove a skillful worker. STANFORD COHEN-Guard They call this Sophomore lad "Reverend" but the enemy says a prayer when Stan goes into action as guard. One of the more muscular gridders, Stan is noted for his fine spirit and sportsmanship. His firm tackles will unquestionably make him a worthy fighter for next year's eleven. WILLIAM NAUMAN-Right End "Red" really means stop for enemy players when they try to crash the right end post. A willing and active participant of the squad, he did his best in the games he played. Because of this, Bill will undoubtedly be a varsity man in the coming season. JOHN KACHMAR-Center A reserve center on the Chieftain eleven, johnny proved his skill at playing center in the North Catholic game. A quiet, steady worker he was a decided asset and proved invaluable when Hobe experienced his injury during the season. johnny always cooperated to the fullest extent. HARRY PSCHIRER-Halfback The Sophomore class is proud to claim Harry as one of its members, -for his versatility in playing any position on the team made him invaluable. Always on hand to display his talents, Harry, as one of the team's staunchest supporters, can look forward to a successful season next year. DONALD DE GENTHER-Fullback "Duck," a favorite with his teammates, really "saved the day" when Bob Pfund was injured and Don stepped into his position as fullback. Formerly a tackle, Don played each post with equal skill. Let's hope the Army spares him for next year. FLOYD HUBSTENBERGER-Halfback Despite his size, "lHups" was the best kicker on the ilvlillvale squad. Playing both half and quarterback positions proved no stumbling block to him, for he excelled in both. We hope he will prove as helpful in the Navy as he did to the team. FOOTBALL SUBSTITUTES Much has been spoken about the Varsity football squad but not to be undone is the mentioning of the capable reserves of the past season. Although these boys did not receive letters, their Hne fighting spirit was always on hand to be used whenever needed. These boys were: M. Cohen, F. Siranovich, W. Bender, C. Franskousky, O. Hempel, J. Perez, R. Riddlebaugh, F. Thomas, J. Ulrich, G. Bertram, J. Chernowski, H. Dilmore, H. Foss, L. George, R. Lisnesky, C. Murslack, K. Schindler, E. Elstner, M. Georgalas, J. Gittings, R. Lacke, E. Schwab, C. Hyde, T. Stout, G. Franz, and J. Lambert.

Their record showed a card of nine wins and eight losses, also finishing in a tie for third place with Aspinwall in our section. An outstanding fact of Millvale's record was that they were the only team to defeat Sharpshurg who won Section XVIII laurels. Millvale was in the 'gthick of the race" until they lost a couple of tough games to Etna and Aspinwall. Better luck next year, hoys!

Bill hrought Millvale high honor hy gaining the sectional scoring title with 111 points and also setting a new individual scoring record with 202 points. His outstanding feats have showered him with praise. Page Seventy-three PAUL KNAUER "Elbie" was one of the mainstays of the varsity team for four years. His shots from the middle of the floor often proved exciting, bringing the crowd to their feet! Paul was missed by the team the latter part of this season when he was forced to drop out due to a knee injury. Next year's team will greatly miss Pauls services. JOSEPH PUSATERI "Joe" was called by his teammates the "work-horse", because of his untiring effort. For this reason other teams constantly kept an eye on him, trying to out' guess his moves. Having played two years of varsity basketball, joe will be one of the missing links in next year's team. ROBERT RAKERS "Hobe," one of the robust members of the squad, was always an asset to the team. His onefhand shots from the corner and also his accurate foul shooting made 'him an indispensable member of the team. "Hobe's" enthusiasm will cer' tainfy put a spark into next year's playing. ROBERT PFUND Playing his second season on the varsity, "Scorp" was ideal in both defensive and offensive work. His swiftness on the court, which was a decided help to his own team, often baffled his opponents. Bob's teamfwork and unceasing en' deavor definitely played a vital part in the season's outcome. FRANK BINDER Although Frank was not very tall compared to the other members of the squad, he was one of the stalwarts of the team. Always getting the ball off the banking board, he did his best throughout the whole season. Frank has had only one year of varsity basketball, but in that time he has shown promising results. JACK AUFMAN Jack, the smallest player on the team, displayed flashy tactics which bewildered his opponents. His shot from the middle of the floor that 'beat Etna will be remembered in basketball history. Although Jack was 'a newfcomer of this year's team, he proved his versatility in countless games. BASKETBALL SUBSTITUTES The reserves of the basketball team proved their "weight in gold," for they were more than helpful whenever their services were needed. They were a great aid in building up the skill of the Varsity Team, for by practicing with them, thcze boys then displayed some tricky opposition. They were: Otto Hempel, Mitchell Georgalas, Larry Funk, John Kachmar, Robert Kremer, and Robert Riley. HATS OFF TO OUR MANAGERS! Although joe Wellinger and Fred Blosat are only "pint" size, they helped the football team in a "big" way. Indispensable in time of need, these little warriors aided the Chieftains on to victory. The wrestling team owes a great deal of its success to their able manager, Bill Kunde. On hand when injuries hampered any member of the team, he administered skillful aid. His loyalty to the team played a vital part in their outcome. Such willing assistance as Bob Funk and Fred Blosat gave to our basketball team is rare indeed! Their ine enthusiasm and cofoperative nature was valued highly by all the members of the team. Pa 3 : Seventy-four VVRESTLING The wrestling season closed this year with four wins to our credit, three losses, and one tie, an admirable record for any team. Under the capable and willing leadership of Coach Robert Howard, our wrestling warriors put the name, Millvale High, on the map of athletics. These boys, from "big', Frank Munson to 'llittlem Shorty Wellinger, contained champion material. Although the sport is comparatively new, the foregone record shows a bright future for the wrestling YCKIIH.

OUR ATHLETIC BENEFACTORS Do you believe in Santa Claus? M.H.S. believes not in one, but three ! ! ! Mr. Oscar Cohen, Mr. Joseph Wellinger, and Dr. L. C. Baldwin have indeed been good to our football and basketball teams, presenting the boys with gold footballs and basketballs. The boys also received a banquet of turkey and all the trimmings, financed by the Athletic Association, and prepared in the school kitchen under the super' vision of the 'kQueen of Cooks," our own Miss Smith. The speakers of the evening were: Captain Edward Gallup, United States Army, A. L. McCombs, Football Coach, Aspinwall High School, Kirk Tallman, William Beyers, Joseph T. McCarthy, and some of our boys, including William Rakers, Robert Rakers, and Joseph Pusateri. 'Mr. V. C. Holsinger gave the invocation, and the toastmaster for the evening was Mr. James P. Swain. Surely no school can boast of such benefactors, and such memorable occasions 'git gives that needed ounce of encouragement to spur our boys to victory.
