MILLVALE HIGH SCHOOL
bnfovs essa e
During the greatest of all wars something must be preserved to lighten the
afflictions of the masses. That is the reason this spirited Class of '43 proudly
introduces the fifteenth 'Millvalean to alleviate the distresses of the day.
In order that old acquaintances should not be forgotten, that the mirthful
pranks of our high school days be long remembered, and that the enthusiasm of
the underclassmen be aroused . . . we wish to film a realistic picture to be focused
in our memory . . . forever.

The idea originated the first day of school
when Miss Brennan suggested to some of her
students to write to the boys. From this little
nucleus the Newsletter grew and has been
sponsored by Miss Johnston and Miss Brennan,
mimeographed by secretarial students and

OUR FACULTY AS WE KNOW THEM
Mr. Holsinger says you can win if you're steady,
For knowledge and wisdom come to him who is ready.
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.

MADAME ZGMBIE SEES OUR FUTURE
THROUGH THE STARS
Knock! 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."

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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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-
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.

"SKATES" ' N r
To the tune of the "Skater's Waltz" the whirl of the wheels may be heard
as they glide over the floor of the West View Roller Rink, Millvale's popular arena
for holding skates. 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.
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.
'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.
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.
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
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.

One really knows that summer is on its way when Miss S'mith's Fashion
Show takes place. 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.
"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.

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.
"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.
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.
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

Rakers, William Rakers, Robert Riley, Harold Sadwick, joseph Wellinger, Mitchael
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,

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.

By far one of the busiest rooms at M. H. 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
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.
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!
"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

Another successful season has passed into Millvale football history. 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.
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. .
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.
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
"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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.

Under the new guidance of Kirk Tallman, the Chieftains experienced a
moderately good season. 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

Bill, a "dead shot" from any part of the floor, played four years of varsity
baskethall, bringing fear to all his opponents. 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.
"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
"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.
"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.
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.
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
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.
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
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
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

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.
