To You, PRINCE OF PEACE, we are wholly indebted. Our
unsung heroes now are peacefully at rest with the thought that at last
their dreams may be a reatity. Their sons and daughters, wives and
Sweethearts, mothers and fathers, may know that their sacrifices were
not att in vain. The favorite drugstore on tile Corner, the old swimming
note in the meadow, lovers, lane along the moonlit take, the white
church on the hilt, and other dear haunts will constantly remind us of
those who never again will be among us mortatty, out deep in our
hearts we know that their spirits will tive on forever. After four endless
years of tumutt and confusion, we, the youth of the world of today,
cherish the glowing essence of peace that has been spread over time huge
globe of which we are all a part. No longer do the roar of the cannon
and the screams of the dying, haunt the young child or his youthful
mind with growing fear. Instead, there is a peaceful joy fitting the
hearts of att--young and old alike. This joy, created by our soldiers.-
weary, wounded, or sleeping-must never be abused. It must tae con-
stituted to build a better world. We, the Class of ,46, earnestly pledge
to keep this promise with our iiearts, souls, and minds, so that ottlers
may tive in a peaceful world free from the roar of cannons, the screams
of dying, and the fearful looks of children. To You, Prince of Peace,
we bow down in reverent tttankfutness for once again reigning over the

Their lives they placed upon man's noblest altar,
Entabernacled for the peace of man,
For Christian faith transmutes in man all sufering
Into eternal joys and life's awards.
And thus I feel that far beyond the thousands living
Unto our dead my pilgrimage is made,
And in th.e oneness of a common sorrow
Born of the Single Fatherhood of God,
I leave in thought the message of each dear one
Upon the altars of our templed dead.
And they in turn, to us, I feel, ane speaking
With eloquence which we, the living, hear.
They ask not to have back what they have given:
They seek not praise, nor prize, nor earth's acclaim
They only ask that we who follow after
May profit by the anguish they have borne.
They ask for men the just peace that they fought for
The better world that they have died to build.
OUR SLEEPING SOLDIERS

OUR SCHOOL DIRECTORS
Guidance the needed quality for a successful future can be achieved only if it is faced
intelligently by those controlling the education of youth. This fact has been realized by our school
directors who have provided:
Obtainable goals for students and faculty members alike to meet, as they progressed in the yearly work.
Scholastic policies which raised the standards of MHS' and gave it a reputation of a much higher
degree than many other schools of a like caliber.
Deeisive action to remove all obstacles and pitfalls from the paths trod by the students in order to
insure them of a bright future.
i l-lll.DA fl. DEPP
No other school can boast of su-eh a charming
Q truant officer who shows:
Humor and joviality as she becomes a real friend with
- the members of the student body and urges its
feminine members to follow her footsteps in the
Jollity and a completely disarming smile when rceeivf
ing the sometimes weak excuses for our absence.
Dexterity and adeptness in her desire to make people
feel at ease and selffconhdent in her presence.
DR. VINCENT W. SIMPSON
The man carrying the little satehel who cures our aches and
Vital to the wellfbeing of the student body for his meaningful task
of diagnosing their ailments.
Wnirthy of praise and many thanks for giving untiringly of his
knowledge and time to help those less fortunate than he.
Skillful in providing not only medical aid, but also spiritual and
moral aid to soothe the emotions of his fellow beings.

in gym class when peppy Roberta

curls and a gay smile, together
with an adorable wardrobe give

"Bobbi" surely paints the picture

Although Jim had only been with
us for three years, this tall Irish
lad has left an outstanding schol-

Jim was only a sophomore, he
proved his worth in athletics as a
basketball star and again the
following year as a hero of the

for chemistry and her helping hand makes
"Gert" quite an outstanding member of the

his musical achievements, this field is not the
only one in which his abilities are displayed.

Behind that pretty smile and neat appearance,
we find that Jean also has intelligence and com'
mon sense. She has time not only to look lovely
and be an honor student, hut also to be an
essential cog in the wheels of social activity
here at school.
Not only has "Ken" been an active member
in athletic participation, but also in the class'

His gentle humor and versatile manner have

Eternally overflowing with fun, and possessf
ing an inevitable giggle, it is no wonder our

though she does not take her studies too

the ladder of success.
Sweet sophistication mixes wonderfully with
sense, we find. "Pat," with her lovable, laugh'
ing expression and charming personality finds
time in her gay social life to make good in all
her school work.
Wheii we think of "Nance," we think of
the girl who is always seen having wonderful
times with the "gang" and attending all the
dances. She, however, is more than that. Nancy
is one of our busiest typists and honor grad'

Sometimes we won-der how "Ginny" can
get her honor grades, because she spends so
much of her time helping others! She is often

the Millvalean bookkeeping or -cutting stencils.
Valuable, versatile Virginia well deserves the
title of "Honor Grad."

OhI myI A delicious steaming turhey, creamy, white potatoes with gravy,
yellow crisp corn, green string Imeans. Imright red cranberry sauce, creamy Izutter,
delicious red wine, steaming coffee, hot pumptein pie'-fall of these will he wait-
ing for me on Thantzsgiving Day. And then, Diary, an extra day oft from school
to recuperate. This year everyone of us will sit down to the fruits of the land
with a song of thanksgiving on our tips, and a prayer in our hearts for those who
cannot be with us this Thanksgiving.
I can't wait, Diary.
In this month of good tidings and joy, I realize once more the teaching of
Christ and its relationship to our lives today. For it is during this season that
we want to share our homes and joys, and give gifts to those we love. The real
meaning of Christmas is being shared all over the world.
This month, we helct our first activity of the year, a tnarn party at the ever
popular St. Anthony's Lyceum. Everyone enioyect himself anrt canlt wait for
the next Sophomore activity.
The snow is falling softly, Diary, anft sprearling a realty, truly spirit of
Christmas over the earth.

world enabling others too, to be thankful.
G'nite again, Diary.
It seems the older you get, the faster time flies. Here it is December already
and the first semester almost ended. and I haven't had time enough to catch my
breath. Ati sorts of investigative themes, book reports, and taiies are piling up.
I took with an envious eye on those iucizy personages who have nothing more
to do than take a rest from school iife. Things are not att bad though and I'm
sure Christmas stiii holds many surprises in store for me.
Seasons Greetings, Diary.
I. To do better work in schooi.
Q. To be polite to my teachers and feiiow students.
5. To go to most of the activities around schooi.
4. To do my part when asked.
Now, iet me see, is there any more? Oh, that's enough to begin with.
Weil, Diary, it's sorta hard to start back to school after such a nice Christmas
vacation, but here's hoping rti get into the swing of school life again.

My first Senior meeting .V T t I was so excited to he up in Room 5, partici-
pating in my first Senior meeting. The purpose was to elect officers. I am sure
we all voted honestly as to whom we thought tmest suited to tae our Senior
Chieftains. This was proven hy the following being elected: F. Thomas, President:
L. Schomhurger, Vice President, Pat Sismour, Secretary: N. Bernehurg, Treasurer.
Now to get ahead and plan for the coming year!
Now, Diary, t am positively heing rushed. Yesterday it was a Senior meeting,
and now today it was the Senior Sioux. This meeting was held also for the pur-
pose of electing officers. We voted and the following were elected: H. Henning,
President: B. Giger, Vice President: and Edith Wolff, Treasurer. i've tween wait-
ing all three years to be in this organization and now at long last I am. Oh, I
almost forgot: there was also a G. R. meeting. They eiected officers too.
Ol., what a tzusy day! This is the dreaded season in which fate catches up
with us, one hy one. We were all called upon to give our chosen topics for
investigative Reports. The library used to seem like a quiet friendly little place
hut now it appears to he as spacious as the deserts of Egypt and there are myriads
of hooies, pamphlets and magazines to he consulted for our themes. I am a init
douhtfui as to whether or not I shalt he finished in time and right now fm so
worn-out that i can no longer hold my eyes open, so good-night for now.
We experienced our greatest victory of the year tonight. Perhaps this great
victory was partly due to the enthusiastic response we got at the pep rally. As is
traditional, we paraded through the streets with the proper respects due the coffin
containing the remains of the Shaier "HusiQy." Later in the evening the casket
was tmuried in the parteing tot adjoining the football field.
Tonight our joy was two-fold. Enthusiasm soared as we ended the game
with a score of I7-9 in our favor. Amid the flourish of tom-toms, our traditional
"indian Queenu was crowned by an attendant.
Oh! what excitement-four first ex-service man came hack today. it's swell
to have Vernie George hactz, and i'm sure he's glad to he here in spite of att

There were a good many that attended and they ioohed so cute dressed like little

a very pieasant evening. O-o-o-o-h-h-h, Diary, my stomach feels queer, guess it

SENIOR MASQUERADE BALL
Wlizit was the 'most colorful event of the season? The Senior Masquerade
Ball, of course I ! I Being the early bird, not one fantastically groomed Senior
escaped my keen eye. I made myself at home in a very inconspicuous spot when
lo and behold, who entered but George OLD KING COLE Franz who was ad-
mitted into the ball by our dwarf attendants, Bob SLEEPY Anderson, and Bob
DOC Lisensky. The first guest made himself at home when he was joined by
his friend, Betty IMOTHER GOOSE Giger who began to relate the day's ad-
ventures of her brood and stated that she hoped they would be well-behaved this
evening, as she wished to impress her neighbor Renee MARY WORTH Schindler
who was caring for them during her absence. Astoundingly enough, the dashing
Mel ALADDIN Cohen appeared on the scene early in the evening to add his
magic touch to this gala affair. As my eyes swept across the floor, they met the
striking appearance of Carol SLEEPING BEAUTY Frankowsky who was escorted
by Eugene BIG BAD WOLF Buchhol: who immediately began to trip the light
fantastic. A flash of eolorggay Chuck I-IANZEL Kuhn hand in hand with
Virginia GRETEL Kuhn have crossed the threshold. Bertha LITTLE BO PEEP
Giger, uneseorted because she has been separated from her lover fPvt. joel,
amused herself by talking to Chuck LITTLE BOY BLUE Guea who had eome
without a fair maiden. A tinkling giggle was heard from the far corner of the
ballroom as Roberta LITTLE MISS MUFFET Bauer, ,Iunella DAISY MAE
Balster, and Mary Agnes CURLY LOCKS Krain engaged in an effervescent con-
versation. A glow of red spread throughout the room as Lois LITTLE RED
RIDING HOOD Gittings and Ellen ELLA CINDERS Ernst pranced through
the door bubbling over with joy. "Screcch, scratch, screeehv were the first signs
of life from the musicians as Joe PIED PIPER Badali and the rest of his "Musical
Knights" began to tune up their fiddles. Jean CINDERELLA Blumer and Vernie
PRINCE CHARMING George caused a momentous silence as they waltzed to
the tune of "Sweethearts" and were later ioined by all who were present. The
walt: ended with the arrival of Roberta SNOW WHITE Burget and three of
her well behaved dwarfs namely, Edith Ann SNEEZY Bauer, Jean HAPPY Sirlin,
and Lee BASHFUL Schomburger. Of course GRUMPY and DOPEY must have
had previous engagements because they were not seen at the ball. In the mean-
time, I gazed about at the beautiful decorations which were 'provided by our
Marian FAIRY GODMOTHER Myers and her capable assistant Rosey ROSE
RED Fleming. The immense hall with its elaborate trimmings was an unforgetable
sight. While admiring my surroundings, I missed the arrival of the well known
Bob MICKEY MOUSE Young and his admirer Nancy MINNIE MOUSE Berne-
burg. Why there's another couple who escaped my eye-fl-Ielga CINDY Henning
and jim SMILING JACK McNerney, who were enjoying themselves with a sand-
wich and glass of punch and, by the looks on their faces, it must have been

delicious. Crash! Whitt was that? The grand entrance of Herbie HUMPTY
DUMPTY Foss and his good friend, Harry SIMPLE SIMON Dilmore who were
having a rollicking good time flirting with all the pretty maidens. Following these
two jesters, came the crowd who had an especially nervefwracking ride. Among
them were Keith GOLDILOCKS Hyde, Jean JANE ARDEN Neuf, Pat FRITZI
RITZ Sismour, Edith BRENDA BREEZE Wolff, Dolly TILLIE THE TOILER
Uszko and Bernie BLACK BEAUTY Kachmar. "Beep, beep" announced the
arrival of Eddie FRECKLES Blum and Lucky JANE WYMAN Zotter accompanied
by Alice HILDA GRUBB Cooper and Kenny LARD Schindler in their old
jalopy. A chatter grew louder as they neared the ballroom door. This chatter
was due to the loquacious Toots BOOTS Randig, Erma ALICE IN WONDER-
LAND Lache, Maggie HEIDI Nist, Virginia TOPSY Blosat, and Jane PUG
Zwigart. The lights dimmed and a mood of sentimentality spread over the spacious
hall as the familiar strains of the love song "Because" floated through the air.
Whitt a fascinating appearance everyone made in the enchanted ballroom but
as the lights flashed on, the mood suddenly changed to a shout of "Whciopee, ref
freshments!" Everyone scurried to the refreshment table where our dependable
Anna Mae ANNIE ROONIE Galvin, lMillie DIXIE DUGAN Klein, Erma BECKY
GROGGINS Brennan, and Roy BUGS BUNNY Pfister, gnawing at a carrot,
were busily taking care of the demands of the hungry multitude. Tony DAG-
WOOD Sarkis, whipped together one of his super duper Bumstead Specials
while Virginia BLONDIE Young fretted over his seemingly expanding waistline.
The lights were onice more dimmed and the orchestra took their instruments in
their hands to bring forth the familiar strains of other beautiful waltzes in which
every guest participated. The ballroomfagain alive with the glittering costumes-
created a friendly, jovial feeling among everyone. No affair is complete without
a few latefcomers. Among the group at this affair we found Bill SLUGGO Snook
and Eve NANCY Porr who arrived late due to a breakdown of their limousine.
QHa!! Ha!!J Immediately they joined in the merriment of the crowd. A cry of
"hubba hubbau escaped from the lips of many of the maidens when our Al
LONE RANGER Bates entered their midst. Look over there! It's a bird, it's a
plane, why no it's Fritz SUPERMAN Thomas. He breezed through the door
with his bright red cloak flowing behind him. He bowed graciously to his hostess
and at once joined in with the others. Following immediately behind him,
partially hidden hy his red cloak, was our indispensable Gert MAGGIE Keller,
whose giggle adds a merry note to any gathering. Last but not least, entered John
JACK IN THE BEANSTOCK Koslosky, the handsome hero of our class. He is
out of this world and so was our Senior Masquerade Ball.
Well friends, it was a grand evening while it lasted, but as all good things
must come to an end so did our Mzlsquerade Ball, when the clock struck the hour

l had another dream last night ahout the futures of my classmates. Gee,
l wonder if any of my dreams will come true. lt's hard to imagine PATTY SISMOUR.
the wife of the owner of a steel mill, visiting MARIAN ZOTTER,S exclusive dress
shop, lznown as Mlle. Lucley's. As l neared the shop, l noticed on the door a
placard stating, "Mlle. Lucky supplies all of DOLLY USzleo's gowns." Dolly is
the singer with the hand of JOE BADALI. Then, a.s in most dreams I was in a lausy
office with typewriters clattering and men shoutin' ucopyn, and passing the deslas
unnoticed, l saw a door with neat lettering spelling out. UJEAN NEUF. Editor-im
Chief" and there was lean rushing through the office like a whirlwind, getting
tire ufzeaders' Digestn out two weelzs ahead of schedule. Amazing classmates,
MARY AGNES KRAM hadn't let any grass grow under her feet either, she was
head of the sales department of the National Biscuit Company. An executive
had seen her efficiency at the lyalzery where she started. VIRGINIA KUHN was nearly
a stranger in town, what with her world travels in Europe, Asia, Africa, and
North and South America.
Ev p0RR,S typing ability and pleasing personality won her a handsome
husband and the partnership with him in the managing of a husiness agency.
MARGARET RANDIG was still as peppy as always. coaching her own softball team
and holding a ich as personnel manager at a downtown department store. JEAN
SIRLIN was still a wonderful dancer. and was appearing in the world premier
showing of a movie co-starring her and Gene Kelly at no place other than the
Grant Theater in Millizale.
My dream became more startling as I slept ont VIRGINIA YOUNG was chosen
Secretary of the Treasury, the first of an all-woman cabinet under the first woman
president. MAGDELINA NIST was in town for a short visit. She and her huslmand
from Texas discovered a diamond mine on one of their six thousand acres ol
land. ln my dream l looleed through a magazine and on the cover and in a
numher of advertisements. l saw the face of EDITH WOLFF, one of the popular
models of the clay. IRMA LACHE, a small quiet classmate of mine met and married
a prosperous small town doctor and is the source of inspiration and hope in the
rugged life he must lead. And, last, I dreamed of JANIE ZWIGART, what a life,
the untirin' dynamo behind a number of the peace-time U.S.O. Canteens in
Pennsylvania and New Yorle. l woke up just as l was entering a theatre with
a hit production rumored to he hacked hy Ianie.
VVEDNESDAY, JUNE 5, 1946
Dear Dia ry:
Ho-Hum, it's time to retire again. l wonder if l will have another dream
lilee the one l had last night. What a dreaml
lt seemed lilee it was about the year 1965. Milllfale was alnout the same.
except for the addition of an airport next to the football field huilt hy KEN
SCHINDLER. the president of Schindler lnterplanetory Airlines. Also there was an
entirely new road huilt, connecting the airport and East Ohio Street. This type
of road was called guchate. after the famous highway engineers, CHARLES GUCA
and ALBERT BATES.
l had just purchased an atom-powered car from JOHN KOSLOSKY, the local
representative for General Motors, and was going over to Pitt Stadium to hear
the marvelous Pitt Band, directed lay ROY 'PFlSTER.
Riding on the guctnate road was so smooth that I was so stopped for speed-
ing tny GEORGE FRANZ, the police chief. Naturally I argued with George, but he
insisted that I go visit Dr. MEL COHEN to get my head examined!
After I returned, I stopped for some bread at the "Quality First Super Market"
owned 'by CHARLES KUHN. Chuck seemed to he in a heated discussion with Lois
GITTINGS, the first grade teacher, over his sons conduct in school!
Tn the store I was surprised to find LEE SCHOMBURGER whistling merrily while
waiting his turn at the cashiers counter.
"VVhy are you so happy?" I asked.
He replied, 'Tue just been made manager of the Industrial Arts Division of
Vvestinghouse Electric Corporationf'
Hcongratulationsl Want to go see ROBERTA BURGET appear as guest soloist
with the Symphony tonight? I asked.
"Oh, we can go tomorrowf, Lee said, HLet,s see that movie "Home Town
Successn co-starring CAROL FRANSKOUSKY and BOB YOUNG.
It was taken from that novel lay KIETH HYDE, remember?
Vvell, right there that mean alarm went off!
Vyfell, goodbye until tomorrow.
THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 1946
Last night my dream was like a prophecy. Looleing up at the tall, expansive
wall of buildings as tstrolled along North Avenue, I spied a sign reading HDILMORE
Cabinet Company." Upon entering this establishment I found HARRY, the
executive, and JEAN BLUMER, his secretary, husily at work. 1 asked if they ever
heard from our former classmates. A magic carpet was acquired and we were
off to see a few. Up. up, up we flew, to the top of a lofty weather tower. There
was GERT KELLER vigorously at worle predicting the weather. Down we zoomed
to the stadium where we saw Coach FRED THOMAS and Assistant Coach BOB
IJSENSKY with their football squad. They had a very successful season: winning
nine out of nine, and heing victorious in the Rose Bowl game. T smiled to myself
when I saw NTEAMMY MYERS trying to get a picture of that victorious gang, just
as she did when we were Seniors, for the next edition of the "New York Timesf,
Then we passed by the windows of the Electrical Engineering Company, spotting
BILL SNOOK at his office doing his part as the executive of the company. Higher
we climbed and passing the city hospital we saw Dr. BETTY GIGER performing a
very rare operation. Below, excitement came with hordes of people. Dropping
lower until almost touching the ground, we overheard one person remark, "That
TONY SARKIS can surely write the hooks." He always wanted to he an author.
I thought to myself. Continuing past the hook shop we found ourselves before
"Foss Flowers and Company." HERBIE had also made good in Business which
was to he expected when T rememher him in high school days,-as always deliver-
ing flowers. Next we sailed over "BLUM's Service Stationf' EDDIE, like the
rest, had achieved his life-lonq ambition, working in coordination with BOB
ANDERSON, his machinist, and EUG BUCHHOLZ, his mechanic, just as they did on
the gridiron in high school.
The carpet began to descend. Faster and faster it plunged. The ground rose
to meet us. Boom l l l Crash T l l . . . You, know Diary, T wolze and found
myself on the carpet in my bedroom instead of the magic carpet T was supposed
to be on.

LIGHTS! CAMERA! ACTION!
As the house lights dimmed and the curtain slowly -parted, a drama of the
early eighteen hundreds appeared. As our eyes became accustomed to the bright'
ness of the footlights, we noticed, not the shy, backward ladies or the chivalrous,
lightfhearted gentlemen, but our own Senior livewires ! ! ! After live years, the
town of Millvale was gifted with a Senior Play, "Pride and Prejudice," a romantic
comedy revolving around Mrs. Bennet whose one desire was to see each of her

WHAT MHS HAS MEANT TO ME
As the sun slowly sets in the crimson shy ouerhearl anrl one deeply sighs
anti closes his eyes to happily say, Uvvhen you come to the enfl of a perfect flayf,
so 1 have as I watcheol the close of my senior year slip past. When I recall one
of my most treasuretl and memorable years of my life. a. smile of satisfaction
enlightens my sorrow of leaving my Alma lvlater. Xvhile the last rays of sunshine
steal over me, I feel warm and comforted after a clay of unseemingly endless toil.
I fincl a tear mixecl with gladness ancl regret slowly slip clown my cheek ancl
vanish as I roam once again through the halls of lX'lHS. The incessant chattering
of femmes in their early teens about favorite crooners are audible to one's ears
in any locality of our school. Sports of all sorts is the subject of perpetual clis-
course between most of the stalwart young males. Our faculty, trying clesperately
to convince some nl hnow it alll, stuclent that he may be wrong or pointing out
the ways of life, are all a fragment of the sentiment storefl rleep within. Each year,
from Freshman to Senior. has captivatecl the essences of all my recollections of
lVlHS. When I hrst encountered the regular occupants, friendliness seemed to
reign within this seemingly hugh ertifice wherein I was soon to become a transient
inhabitant. The favorite haunts such as the clamoring typing room, the tranquil
library, the noisy rifle range, or the spacious auditorium come to be everlasting
traces of the unforgetable school life ancl acquaintances. Teachers were no longer
just . . . teachers, but friencls in neecl. Xfvhere coulrl an institution of learning.
from Clusty leaflets of ancient masterpieces to the problems of this world we are
all about to face, be founcl other than through the portals of lVtHS?
"Ideals are like starsg you will not succeed in touching them with your hands,
but like the seaffaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides,
and following them, you reach your distinyf'-V-Carl Sehurz.

Assistant Editor f lvlary Ulrich
Adviser f f Miss Heimhuecher
Rattle, rattle-f the presses are rolling! Whgit flowery language to deserihe
our dilapidated little mimeograph, hut it always gets our treasured paper out on
time even though it just makes it. We're certainly proud of the "voice of MHS"
and its vivaeious editor, Jeanne, for our Chieftain is "tops" with all our squaws
and hraves. One can constantly find Jeanne searching for one of her roving
"nosey newstersu to hand in his tardy assignment, or seeking some typist to begin
the actual task of typing the "dummy" Even our dynamic adviser, Miss
Heimhuecher, has quite a time reading the hieroglyphics of the English language
which the reporters insist on writing. It's an exciting day for all when our paper
appears every other Friday and it will certainly he remembered hy those who
have helped to make it the best ever,
SENIOR LIBRARIAN ASSISTANTS
"Wli:it is a good book to read?" "Is this book on the reading list?" These
are some of the questions you hear being asked in one of the busiest rooms in
MHS, the library. Miss Johnston, our librarian, and her assistants come to our
rescue when we're looking for something for that investigative report or history
talk, etc. The librarian assistants perform such duties as keeping records of over'
due books and book lines, shelving books, and helping their classmates with reference
questions. Wliait would we do without these capable and cheerful helpers!
"There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Withciut oppress of toll:
How frugal is the chariot
That bears a human soul."
Whait a drab old school year we would have, if it weren't for the assemblies!
We wouldn't have these reliefs from monotony, if it weren't for the untiring
efforts of the Assembly Committee. At the end of the school year each student
is given an opportunity to state his favorite assemblies of the past year and give
suggestions for the forthcoming one. Then, the Assembly Committee under the
supervision of Miss Johnston, Miss Brennan, and Mrs. Williziiias, see that these
assemblies are fearried out. These always prove an incentive for us to be at
school bright and early on Thursday mornings. To miss one assembly is to miss
a fine start for the balance of the day. Variety is the keynote, for laughter and
tears are in evidence!
Now that it's time to pack and get out,
I review events gone past,
And stamped right here in the front of my mind
Are the assemblies that'll always last.
They'll last in my heart, my soul, and my mind,
For how can I ever forget
The speeches, debates and solos we had,
The likes of, I've never met.
Roberta's playing is the very best,
The leaders do extremely well,
And led by the aid of a faculty coach,
The assemblies were truly "swell"

How How!! Nitchee Nitchee!! just a little bit of Indian talk to introduce
the Senior Sioux. Parties, dances, and swims are but a few of the limitless activities
of the club. The Senior girls, with Helga Henning as president and Miss Smith
as sponsor have spent many enjoyable hours together. Bertha Giger, the vice'
president, and Edith Wolff, the secretary and treasurer, are two more of the sup'
porting props of the organization. "The Big Three," along with the rest of the
class, made all the social functions memorable occasions. The friendly spirit of the
club added a touch of smoothness to some of the toilsome duties of the Seniors.
And by the way, those red and white felt Indian Maidens were designed by one
of the members of the club. Soon the little emblem 'became a part of Senior Sioux,
just as the club was a minute part in the vast machinery of the 'high school

Have you ever wondered just what makes the Millvale High School Band
truly great, year after year? In the auditorium, on the street, or on the football
Held, "something" is there urging the students to do their best, in producing one
of t-he outstanding groups in the district. It is SPIRITgspirit coming from the
pride every member feels for the band. You can see that spirit marching with
them, resulting in matchless perfection of music, drilling and showmanship.
Let us not forget to give praise to our new band director, Mr. Moses, who
is truly a credit to Millvale High.
MR. FLEMIN G
When you looked closely at the swelling mass of red uniforms on the field
during football season, a short figure dashing merrily here and there came into
focus. Although he was short in stature, the role Mr. Fleming assumed was one
of unlimited proportions. During our past football season he kindly consented to
direct our band and for this we will be eternally grateful. At our last game,
when the red mittens waved wildly and he called, "How about 'Casey', kids?" it
was with tearffilled eyes that we wholefheartedly sang the song he made famous.
Whenever the "redfcoats" are on parade, we who knew Mr. Fleming will always
remember the spirit he instilled within us and the spot he holds in our hearts.
THE GIRLS' CHORUS
Listen! Can't you hear it? The melodious strains that pour forth from the
bandroom each afternoon are produced by none other than the Girls' Chorus. Are
they good? Why certainly, they are! Thursday morning assemblies are often en-
livened by their tunes, leaving everyone humming as they set out to class. They
not only sing popular music, but the -classics as well. Their willingness to particif
pate in concerts and assemblies is an asset to them for their spirit is high as they
strive to keep that of their countrymen the same way. This was shown by their
singing at Deshon Hospital to help boost the morale of our country's wounded
soldiers. Wziit, let us not forget to give a hand of applause to their capable director,
iMiss Huebner, whose untiring efforts are not unnoticed. Surely these girls will
always go through life with a song in their hearts.
Whiit is a song if not to hide
The feelings that we have,
Or maybe a song is to speak our thoughts,
Wliether they're good or bad.
There are songs of joy and sadness,
Songs of days gone by,
Songs that are sung for a little while,
And songs that will never die.
All of these songs are sung for us,
Right here in MHS
For the girls in the Chorus are always prepared,
And never fail to do their best.
With a glitter of hatons and a shimmer of flags you
can readily tell the "high steppersu are about to perform.
As they deftly maneuver down the field we can see each
one of them, a smile on her face and head held high.

The Athletic Cluh includes all ineinhers of the football, haskethall and

activities, such as dances, picnics and hanquets for the three major sports, function
through this organization. Sweaters are also provided for the varsity seniors
from the accumulated dues that have been contributed hy each memher through'
out his high school career. This cluh has done much toward hettering the social
aggressivcness of our high school athletes. Since it does not include varsity men
only. an equal opportunity is given to all athletic participants.

"Kuhn and Guea where are those 'jalopies'?"
Every Thursday you could see our Candy Sellers hustling and bustling around
school getting the food ready for tomorrow night's game. Yes, these girls and
boys were kept quite busy during the season. The boys earried the refreshments
up to the football Held and the girls and their helpers took charge in the evening.
lt was a weighty task trying to secure our rationed goods, but there was fun too!
We wish to thank our Refreshment Committee for keeping the customers satisfied.
They're indespensible. Who ? ? ? Why the stage crew of eourse. Did
you ever see the confusion going on behind the scenes? Well the stage crew
are the persons that get everything under eontrol. Without these dependable boys
MHS would have been literally lost. Their assistance helped in making the
senior play and our many entertaining assemblies successful. We want to thank
Ken Schindler, Roy Pfister, Woody Straub, john Butler and Glenn Neuf for
their everflasting cooperation throughout the year,

Efficient, energetic, and exceptional-three words which describe one of
MHS's most popular feminine members, our school secretary, Mrs. Chambers.
As we look back now, and remember her :cheery smile and enticing personality,
our hearts overflow with gratitude for the countless ways in which she has helped
to make our days run smoothly. We can never forget her understanding ways
and patient nature as she solved the mysteries which lay about us. just merely
saying "Thank you" can never express our true feelings for her unlimited eo'
OUR HELPFUL CUSTODIANS
Looking for a "rightfhand" man? Cease the search now, for here at MHS
we have, in the persons of Mr, Hildebrand and Mr. Gauss, two of the best "right
hand" men in the business. Continually "pickingfup" after students, their days
are spent keeping the school clean and comfortable and answering the numerous
demands for their services. Many times their assistance was taken for granted,
but we do realize the true worth of such unlimited duties and wish to express
our sincere appreciation.
Our "star subwf-fthat's what she is. Those three familiar adjectives-ready,
willing, and able certainly apply to 'Mrs Billoick, who very conscientiously served
in the absence of our faculty members regardless of the subject to he taught. Her
cheery smile and charming personality make her presence quite pleasing and her
appearance in Millvale is noted with joy on the part of the students. A friend
when in need, and a true friend indeed, Mrs. Billoek is welcomed with open arms
A recent newcomer in'the halls of MHS, Mrs. Fallon is well on her way
in teaching our girls how to keep in shape. She has won approval by being an
enthusiastic member of their chattering sessions on hikes to and from the field.
Enthusiasm and congeniiity are her two main attributes and the willingness she
possesses should make her outstanding. Carving a niche of her own at Millvale
in this short time has been no hard task, and we sincerely hope we have laid the
"welcome mat" before Mrs. Fallon.

Gay dresses and pretty flowers adorned the young maidens at the mid year
prom of the Seniors. These lovely young ladies were escorted by their handsome
Cavaliers to St. Anthony s Lylceum on january 26th where they danced to the music

Three cheers for Coach Strem ! ! l With his keen contagious spirit of sportsman
ship "our" boys did the joh of winning in friendly rivalry on the gridiron. Helping
Coach Strem was "old faithful" "Doc" Howard and everready Mr. Beyers who
trained the Freshies to take over next fall. Rah! Rah! Rah I ! !
MEL COHEN-Captain-Right Halfback
Mel. a triple threat halfhack, was the main cog in the powerful Millvzlle
offensive thrusts. His speed and swivelfhipped running plus his great defensive
play made him one of the greatest players and best captains that ever donned an
Indian uniform. Rival coaches proved their admiration and respect for Mel by
selecting him for the first team of the All W. P. I. A. L. Class B schools.

Although Bill seldom carried the ball, he was one of the most important
members of the backield. His main task as quarterback was to rip open holes in
the line for the fullback and halfbacks . . . and this he did with great enthusiasm
and vigor. Bill is one of those boys who never make the headlines but who are
just as important to the team as those who do.
BOB ANDERSON-Left Halfback
"Muggsy," who was perhaps the speediest and shiftieist of all our backiield
men, proved his worth to the team by his great running and kicking. He often
brought the crowd to their feet by his spectacular end sweeps and .coffin corner
kicks. His sense of humor and fighting spirit made him one of the most popular
members of the squad. Although he was small in stature and lig-ht in weight, he
contributed greatly to the success of the team.
HERB FOSS-Left Tackle
Herb was one of the heaviest members of this year's squad. This weight
plus his large stature made him a very aggressive tackle. Herb didn't find his true
form until the middle of the season but from then on he played great ball. Always
in there working for the team, Herb's playing was one of the eleven reasons for
our strong defensive and offensive playing. When Coach looks at his tackle candif
dates next year, he'll wish that Herb was one of them.
TONY SARKIS-Left End
Boy! was that a kick. This 'was one of the many remarks made when Tony's
magic foot collided with the ball. Tony's ability as kicker with his allfaround play
at the games proved a great value to the team. Although "Sabu" appeared to be a
"wee bit" lazy, he was one of the fastest men on the team. His ability to give and
take with a grin, made him a true sport and great team player.
KEN SCI-IINDLER-Right Guard
Undoubtedly one of the greatest guards that ever tied a Millvale shoe strin-g
was a lad by the name of "Joker," Ferocious blocking and dynamic defensive
play brought lhim words of praise from rival players and coaches. The proof to
this last statement was his selection to the second team berth on the W. P. I. A. L.
Class B team. His favorite statement, "That's my man," which referred to a rival
player stretched out in the turf, will al-ways be remembered by his teammates.
"Joker" was one of the main reasons for the many gains up the middle of the
GEORGE FRANZ-Left Tackle
George, the heaviest player on the squad, although not spectacular, could
always be counted on to give everything he had. His easyfgoing nature and
friendly attitude to all made him popular with this teammates. His favorite remark,
"I'll get him next time," proved a challenge not only to George but to his team
as well. We will best remember him for his vastly improved 'play during the latter
part of the season.
"Fritz" has so expertly mastered his position that his abilities on the grid'
iron have become unlimited. Each pass from center was treated with special
precision, allowing the backs to perform at their best. His skillful coordination in
centering and blocking made him a powerful offensive threat. Defensively his line
backing prevented many long gains for our opponents. This lad's versatility will
certainly be missed in years to come.
Bob has played a leading role for the unsung heroes of the gridiron. Although
he was the lightest player on the line, he was not the most timid by far. He
poured all of his heart and soul into each minute of the game, and with these
untiring efforts he continually opened immense gaps in the opponents' line. His
gorillaflike tactics on the defense made our forward wall one of the strongest.
Eddie, our powerful and hardfrunning fullback, could always be counted
on to pick up those last few yards fthat are so hard to gain, for a hrst and ten
or touchdown, Whenever a hole opened up the middle, you could be sure that
fast "back" plunging through for yardage was Eddie, one of the best in the
district. He also proved valuable as a defensive player by his fine work at backing
up the line. Eddie's playing will long be remembered by all those who watched
EUGENE BUCHHOLZ-Right End
Eug-a quiet, steady, hard working player-was very seldom caught napping
by his opponents. Although he did not have much of a chance to be a pass ref
ceiver, since Millvale stuck close to the ground on their offensive thrusts, he dis'
played his great defensive 'play at end in every game he appeared. His admirable
teamwork and defensive skill made him one of the most valuable and useful
players on the squad.
HARRY DILMORE-Right Tackle
Although the lightest tackle on the team, Harry proved his worth by his
determination and will to win. His fast charging and ferocious tackles made up
for his lack in weight. Harry, our morale builder, was the fellow to see whenever
your spirits were low, for his merriment and witty talk could always be counted
on to pep you up. His keen sense of humor and his rough defensive play will be
missed greatly by next year's team.
Although "Hoops" didn't play much this year, he proved his ability by his
outstanding play in the Sharpsburg game. Since the chief duty of a quarterback on
the single wing is blocking, Tom did'n't get much of a chance to show his prowess
as a passer. "Hoops" will help lead the Red and White next year, since the
lettermen elected him co-captain,
BOB GLATZ-Left End
"Mulky" was perhaps the outstanding wingman on the squad. His accurate
blocking enabled many a yard to be gained by the backfield. Bob got a great
kick out of breaking up interference so th-at the backers up could make the tackles.
"Tough as nails", Bob was noted for his aggressive style of play and since he is
only a sophomore he should become one of the greatest ends in Millvale history
during his two remaining years.
Chuck received his chance to make good when Fritz, our regular center,
broke his hand. Through his play in the last two games he proved that we may
expect a great deal from him in his remaining season. Once he improves his
blocking, Chuck will keep up lMillvale's reputation for having good centers. The
experience be gained this season will greatly aid next year's team.
ROBERT SCHWAB-Right End
By his playing and excellent kickoifs, "Bo" proved himself not only a great
end but also a versatile player. When fullback Blum was injured, "Bo" promptly
moved back to the plunger's post and did a great job. He was both big and
tough, a fact that was felt by all his opponents, who were on the receiving end
of his blocks and tackles. "Bo" will team with Glat: next year to give Millvale
a line pair of terminals.
BILL KUNZ-Right Tackle
Bill was one of the hardest working players on the team. His reward for
this was a berth on the first eleven even though he was only a sophomore. Bill's
opponents will admit he was a hard and wise blocker. The experience he has
gained this year will make him number one contestant for a tackle position next
year. Keep up the good work, Bill!
They did it again! Yes, the Stout family has produced another football player
who will hold up the laurels established by his brothers, who preceded him on
the gridiron. "Popeye" was noted for his speed and shifty running on end
sweeps. Although he weighed only 112 pounds, he was perhaps one of the most
ferocious tacklers on the team. If he continues to eat his spinach, he will gain
a lot of yardage for next year's team.
GEORGE SCHINDLER-Right Guard
This lad was noted for his abilities as a good player. His blocking was excellent
and his defensive play was better than that! George could use his head and was
smart in figuring out what was coming next. To be better than his brother was
one of his main ambitions and he no doubt will accomplish it next year. The boys
proved their admiration for him as a player and individual by electing him cof
captain for next year's team.
Enough credit can never be given to those "mighty men of football," the
managers. Their untiring efforts at outfitting and catering to the wants of the
football squad deserve much commcndation. The team members, from the Seniors
down to the Freshmen, take off their hats in respect to jack Wills and his two
hard working assistants, Paul Ceh, and flap" McCloskey. Thanks for everything,
PRESENT FRESHMEN, BUT FUTURE STARS!
Although haskethall season was a little unsuccessful this year, the hoys tried to
do their hest and displayed the clean sportsmanship and citizenship that MHS has
always heen designated for in all sports.
FRED THOMAS-FORWA RD
During this year, his last, "Fritz" has really played Afl haskethall. He
could always he counted on to do his share of the team's scoring, and that,
plus his allfaround ahility, made him an important eog in this year's haskethall
machine. His serious nature and his "wanting to learn" made him popular with
h-oth coach and fellow teammates alike.
"Hoops" was the "dead eye" of this year's varsity. His skill at foul shooting
plus his one handed shots from the center, made him one of the valuahle memhers
of the squad. l'Hoop's" all 'around play and his smart hall handling, gained through
experience, will decide many a game for the "47" edition of the "lndians".
"-lap" can do everything with a haskethall hut make it talk. His surprising
passes, thrown with great skill, set up many a scoring play for the tcam. As the
season progressed so did "laps" skill at dropping in those long shots. His passing
skill and "dead eye" shooting will make him one of the stars of next year's team.
Although Eddie was the smallest player on the varsity, his aggressivcness and
skill made him one of the most valuahle players on the team. Because of his
faking 'and speed, opposing players found it dihfieult to keep him from scoring.
With two more years ahead of him, Ed will undouhtedly hecome one of 'Millvale's
"greats" in haskctball.
Being a southpaw, Donnie is quite adept at shooting onefhand shots from
the left side of the floor. His hall handling also Icavcs little to he desired. These
two factors plus the experience he gained this year will enahle Donnie to lit easily
into next year's starting five.
Glenn stands a inerc six feet four inches in his stocking feet a height which
cnahled him to control the hanking hoard in most of the games. The opponents
found it difficult to check Glenn on his pivot shots which resulted in many points
for the "Indiansf' Glen's fine play and scoring ahility will prohahly form the
nucleus of next ycar's team.
"Give credit where credit is due" is a saying that must he applied to the
good work that "Scuk" did as a haskethall manager. This joh was taken care of
with great enthusiasm and untiring spirit. Coach will he as glad to have "Scuk"
hack as any of his players, hecausc he will have a veteran hack at a tough joh.

Being sure of yourself is an important trait for any wrestler to have, hut it
seemed as if Ken possessed this quality more than any other wrestler. His swift
hut sure movements and tricky holds made him one of the best on the team.
He could always be counted on to fight to the end and this is one trait that will
also help him through life. Yes, to say that Ken comes from MHS makes us
throw our our chests and feel proud.

Mel, the captain of the team was liked by all. Before each boy wrestled, Mel
was on hand to lend a 'cheery word of encouragement. His matches were always
interesting, for the saying, "You can't keep a good man down" seemed to apply
to him. This mighty wrestler ended the season with no defeats to mar his record.
His short, powerful, frame was no easy prey for anyone. Weight proved no problem
to Mel, because he could always manage to meet the requirements. He was serious,
yet could be humorous when the occasion permitted. Next year's captain will
surely have azdifficult job filling Mel's shoes.
"Pin him, Snook!" was the sound that echoed through the gym when Bill
was on the mat. He would crouch at the edge of the mat and sihoot in at his
opponent at the signal, "Wrestle." Before you could wink an eye, Bill would have
his rival down on his back. Then, while everyone cheered, the referee pounded
the mat and Snook had another pin to his credit. Although he lost a few bouts
in the beginning of the season, he ended with a good showing.
GEORGE FRAN Z
The heaviest member of the team was George, who had a mere one hundred
and eightyffive pounds to his credit. Whenever he was on the canvas, George
put forth all he had. Although he only came out for wrestling in his Senior year,
his lack of experience was greatly aided by his sincere determination. When he
wrestled, it seemed as if two giants were flying through space for his weight didn't
seem to hold him down. George's firm spirit kept him going when the odds seemed
At first glance, you would think Tony a rough, tough, and rugged person.
He was just that on the canvas. He wrestled big boys, small boys, and mediumfsized
ones. He would come out fighting and keep it up till the match ended. He had
some trouble in keeping down to weight, because he worked at "Jake's Blue Room."
Eating seemed even better than sleeping to Tony, for in both he excelled. All
his teammates will long remember Tony's big toe which often kept him down to
Tall, thin, and lanky might well describe George. Yet, with all this height,
he only weighed one hundred thirtyfthree pounds. This light weight however
didn't seem to hinder him. He moved out slowly until he just touched his
opponent. Then, as if by magic, he would suddenly explode into a burst of speed
and throw his rival down before 'he knew what 'had happened. It would be all
over in a few minutes because he was determined to pin him. This occurred at
every match when he wrestled. Next year he should prove an aid in increasing the
number of matches won. .
Since wrestling is a sport of merit, making the team de-pends on ability rather
than whether you are a Freshman, Sophomore, junior, or Senior. "Speed," a
Freshman, proved this by being a varsity wrestler in his first year. His strength
took over where his training left off. Many times he was victorious only because of
his greater strength. Speed was another of "Speed's" assets. When on the mat,
this nickname was proved time and time again. We hope that next year "Speed"
will again be a powerful cog in the wrestling team.
"Butcher Bill" and "Crippler Umsteadn acted as managers to the wrestling
team. Whether cleaning up the medicine room, giving out or taking in equipment,
or administering first-aid to an unlucky graippler, the task fell to Bill or john.
What could our boys have done without the cheerful helpfulness of these untiring

Beeause he is usually one of the live high, he is considered a valuable memher of
the team. His jola this year was to keep order on the range, if Mr. lleyers was
ahsent. Vx7e are expecting great things from him ncxt year.
"Berne" has heen a memher of the team for three years. and has seemed to
improve each year. You could usually find her "haunting" everyone for money,
for she was our secretary and treasurer. We hope the team next year wont lind
it too difficult to match her skill.
"Buck" was one of the few underclass lettermen last year. Although he
doesn't take the rifle too seriously, he is a constant eraekfshot on the team. Frank
added the merriment for those waiting for their turn to shoot. Keep up the
good work for next yearis team, Frank.
If there are forms to make out or relays to he arranged, you can always
count on jean to he of assistance. With her merry chuckle and charming way, she
is usually in the middle of every discussion. Levelheaded too, Jean maintains her
composure at all times and especially during matches.
Un scientific issues Wcmcbdy has no equal among the other memhers of the
team. His knowledge of guns is extensive and his ahility to shoot is tops. Many times
he can he found in the shop busily cleaning or repairing our guns. Next year he
will he one of our senior stars. Keep up the good work, Wticidy.
