We, the class of lf?-ll, dedicate this
Colophon with the utmost sincerity
and affection to Paul K. jones, science
teacher, who left us in April of this
year for a position in Westinghouse
where he is employed in a study of
efficiency, Mr. jones has spent prac-
tically eighteen years of his life in this
building. Before the building was re-
modeled, he received his grade school
education in what is now Room 7, His
four years of high school training follow-
ed in this same building. After an in-
terim of four years, he returned to
teach biology and senior science, a
position he has held for six years.

When we entered the halls of Hurst four years ago and were welcomed
in our first assemhly exercises hy our principal, Mr. Mullin, we were
addressed for the first time as the Class of 10-ll, We were proud of that
name which then seemed as remote as some mythical land. How quiclely
those four years have passed until now it is hard to realize that we were
one those pre-adolescents. entering the doors of llurst with mouths
agape and hearts pounding!
We have grown up in these four years as we passed through the flip-
pant sophomore stage to heeome enthusiastic juniors and then dignified
seniors Now we stand on the hrinlv and whether we sinla or swim is
up to each one of us.
During our four years at l lurst, we seniors have had friendly guidance
and excellent eo-operation from our administrationwfrom lX'fr Rum-
haugh and lXlr. Mullin, whose advice and help proved invaluahle, from
the school hoard whose unllailing interest in us has urged us onward,
and from our faculty memhers whose patience and slsill have prepared
us to face our prohlems with understanding, who also have given us a
firm ldasis for living.

he Senior Class
As we, the Class of I9-ll, look back over our four
years at Hurst, we point with pride to our achieve-
ments, and we regret our failures.
Although we are the largest graduating class from
this school, we are sorry that many who started
with us in the fall of 1937 have dropped out of school.
We were one of the first freshmen groups to organize
with Harry Hagerty as president, Frances Kapalka,
vice-president. and Clara lX4eisner as secretary.
When we were soplhomores, many of our group
found themselves winning honors for our school on
the football field, in forensic league activities, and
in the held of music. We were a part of that group,
the underclassmen, about whom one hears little,
but on whose support so much depends.
We emerged from the sophomore stage to wide-
awake juniors, ready to participate with the greatest
zeal in all activities, We presented two one-act plays,
"His lfirst Shave" and "junior Buys a Car," instead
of the customary three-act play. Many of our group
had leading roles in the operetta, "Tulip Time." We
were proud hosts when we entertained the seniors
at the annual prom.
Now, asseniors, we have a distinct place in hligli
school life. Our year has been Hlled with many and
varied activities. During football season, we con-
ducted the refreshment stand at the football games
This year three of our number, Betty lvlilotta, Betty
johnson, and Robert Hauser, were selected as charter
members of I-lursts chapter of the National Honor
Society. "Spring Fever," our class play, was a huge
We have worked hard to live up to our ideals. We
feel we have succeeded to some degree and that we
have not blindly reached for a star. uldeals are, like
stars, you will not succeed in touching them with
your hands. But, like the seafaring men on the desert
of waters. you choose them as your guides, and follow-
ing them, reach your destiny "

zmiors . . . lass of 1942
We all remember that beautiful day in Septemlter.
1938, when we first entered the doors at dear old
Hurst High School. How we lived in anticipation
for the first clay to come and then for the many days
to follow! As we entered the school, we were greeted
by several other students: who were to be our class-
mates. We were watched by everyone, for as you
know, we were known to the upper classmen as the
timid "Freshies." Always afraid of making a little
noise or of being embarrassed when entering the
wrong classes did much to bring us such a name for
we really deserved it. After awhile we became well
acquainted with numerous other students and soon
the newness of high school was forgotten in the midst
of all our friendships. During the school term, we
took several new subjects and took part in many
functicns of the school. Next came the football
season with Hurst winning the Class A Champion-
ship. Then the mid-year exams were over and soon
our year of studying was to be forgotten in the dreams
of our summer vacation.
Summer, however, was soon ended, and we found
ourselves once more entering the doors of Hurst to
renew those pleasant days of l939. Now we had our
courses planned and could soon be making progress.
The football season flew by once again. Exams were
over and our days of study were soon to be ended
as we were again looking forward to vacation days
in the hope that we would soon be entering the school
once more, this time with the proud feeling of being
The summer passed swiftly by and we were look-
ing ahead to that happy reunion with our fellow class-
mates and the continuation of our great career. As
the year rolled along our class play, "What a Life,"
was presented. This proved to be a great success.
Then came the time for the junior rings for which we
had been waiting, The juniors were very proud to
have the pleasure of selecting the standard ring for
the future students and lower classmen of Hurst.
Next on the calendar was the prom, but soon all this
was gone and the junior year came to a close.
In a few months, however, we will be back once
more to enter as Seniors and then to leave Hurst
High School with numerous wonders achieved and
great careers ahead.

Solblaommfes . . . C ass of 1943
On August 28, 1939, two hundred and seventy-
two freshmen boarded the ship, "Hurst High", for
our high school voyage. The first day on board we
received our staterooms and became acquainted
with our fellow passengers and crew. How we scamp-
ered about trying our best to be ideal freshmen, but
we still got lost and did many things we shouldnt
have done. All in all we were the most conspicuous
people at Hurst.
What excitement we had at the football games
while we cheered our team on to victory. Cf course
we were defeated a few times, but we are proud to
say that our players always maintained the highest
degree of sportsmanship.
What are those dark clouds in the horizon? We
found that they were the mid-semester exams and
how the boat did rock. Some of the sailors were
thrown overboard, but most of us were able to en-
dure the storm.
During the second semester we had smooth sailing,
and soon we anchored the ship to spend a vacation.
Much to our surprise Utempus fugitf' and again
we set out on September 3, 1940, but we were not
freshmeng we were sophomores which means "wise
fools." This time we had a definite course in mind
for everything must be planned because we are well
on the way.
Again we were attending those exciting football
games and the sophomore class was active in bring-
ing fame to our Alma Mater through the gridiron
as some of our best players are found in the soplio-
Of course we were confronted with the same storms
as we were the previous year, but most of us again
were able to overcome these impedirrents,
We wish to congratulate the members of cur hne
debating team who have become the debate champions
of the county and to mention that a sophomore is a
member of that team.
Now we must say adieu to all our classmates, and
we hope that they will return next year asjuniors
to continue our voyage and then onward to our goal-
success. Summing all things up the class of "43'
has shown its spirit whenever tested and greater
achievements are promised for the future.

reslrmen. . . Class of 1944
The Tuesday morning of September 3, 1940
marked the beginning of a long, hard, but enjoyable
march for us, two hundred eighty-nine newcomers.
We gazed in wonder at the structure before us, try-
ing to imagine just what was in store for us behind
those massive, red brick walls. Then without further
hesitation we were off on a new phase of life.
Once inside we "freshies", as we were called by the
upper classmen, found we weren't alone, Although
a bit shy, we went rushing up and down the halls,
getting in the way of others, and sometimes getting
into the wrong class. Assisted by our superintendent.
principal, and teachers, we soon became accustomed
to our new "House of Learning".
We honor the former students of Hurst, our upper
classmen, and our teachers for the many different
fields of activities and the most useful Student
Continuing our march, we came upon the football
season, in which we took an active part. Probably
because we were still full of "kiddish pep" the cheers
came largely from us.
Time passed so quickly that before we knew it we
came face to face with the merriest of all holiday
seasons, Christmas. Preceding our vacation, an
evening program was presented, which included a
half hour band concert, the singing of Christmas
Carols by the Hurst chorus, and lastly a most fas-
cinating tableau entitled, "They That Sit in Dark-
New Years! just what we needed to start the
year off right, resolving, first, to try to be honorable
students in the months to come. Though tired as we
might have been from our hard efforts, we could not
slacken our pace, for Old Father Time waits for no
man. With this new year of 1941 came mid-semester
examinations. Then the junior play, "What a Life",
starring Henry Aldrich, went over with a "bang",
March came ending a very successful season for the
Forensic League, followed by the junior-Senior Band
Concert and the basketball tournament. April, with
its spring beauty, brought us the operetta entitled,
"Miss Cherry Blossom", a very colorful and ro-
mantic japanese musical play.
Our school picnic at Idlewild Park was most en-
joyable, and a very pleasant way to end the term,
Bidding our Senior friends good-by, we have only
learned the first step on our long journey upward.
In a few short months we all hope to return to Hurst
High, and resume our learning career, not as new-
comers, but as seasoned veterans.

Our first game of the season was under the arc
lights at johnstown. The team had worked hard for
this game, and the desire to win was present in thc
heart of every player. Even though we lost, the
experience gained proved of great value in following
The following two games were with AA opponents.
In these the glory of our school was upheld, not by a
victory, but by the fighting spirit of our team.
The teams first class A game of the season was
played at Sewickley Township and was a heart-
breaking 7 to 6 loss, although it was considered a
moral victory. Smarting from this loss, the team
travelled to Scottdale where it steamrollered aflghting
Scotty team to the tune of 33 to 0. Our second string-
ers played part of this game.
The first home game of the season was with Derry
Township, Enthusiasm ran high in this game. Al-
though we showed superb form, luck was with our
rivals and we had to accept a loss.
The coaches and players worked hard for the clash
with our ancient rivals, Mt. Pleasant, The field was
filled to capacity, and the crowd saw a hard fought
game. The Bobcats managed to push over a touch-
down in the final quarter which proved to be the
I-lurst's remaining games were fairly successful,
as we won two and lost one. The team registered an
easy win over the St. Vincent Prep team, and closed
the season with a one-sided victory over the fighting
eleven of Perry Township.
We were proud of the teams showing for the sea-
son. Surely the losses were through no fault of the
coaches or the boys. Their playing speaks for itself.

With the beginning of a new season, a new center
had to be found. Tom Tepper and Marion Hanizik
were the best prospects. Both boys, although light.
took care of their positions well all season. They
should go far next year.
Small, but fast, would best describe our guards.
Frank Puskar, Tom Bizup, and Paul Tepper were
responsible for these positions, and they turned in
reliable performances all season. Their good blocking
and tackling was a mainstay of our teams strength,
Our tackles, Walter Ungvarsky and jay Hoffer,
were hard working boys who put their hearts into the
game. Their weight helped to balance the lightness
in other parts of the line. They were responsible for
many of our teams gains and the checking of our
Our two senior ends, Ernie Polcha and Danny
Skudrna, will be hard to replace next year. They
were well matched and were both valuable players.
Danny was adept at catching passes. and consistently
jammed up the enemys offense. Although handi-
capped by injury a good part of the season, he gave
a stellar performance. Ernie also must share a part
of the glory. His fine playing was a feature of every
Cur backfield was one of the best in our class. joe
Glamp hlled the fullback position, with Gorinski and
Ubracto at the halves, and Mike Homulka at quarter-
back, joe was the sparkplug of our team. He was a
sixty minute man without whom our team would
not have been the same. As captain of the team, his
decisions were always of the best. He was a terror to
every opposing team, and there seldom was a game
not highlighted by one of his long runs. Most of our
points were scored by joe. On the defensive, he was
an excellent blocker and a terrific tackler. A senior,
he will be hard to replace. Clarence Gorinski, Walters
younger brother, was a hard to stop runner and a
whiz on the defense. His hard tackles stopped cold
many attempted gains by our opponents, and his
well thrown blocks accounted for many of our own,
A freshman Gnd, F rank Obracto, should develop into
an outstanding athlete at Hurst. His fine all around
playing was excellent for a first year man. Mike
Homulka, our quarterback, was one of the most
valuable players in the backfield. He was an ex-
ceptionally good blocker and was in on every tackle
on the defense. His blocking opened the way for many
of clamps runs. This fighting backfield and a
fighting line helped us form a smooth working team
that our school was proud of.

Stanley jagoda was our varsity center. His ex-
cellent floor maneuvering enabled us to score many
points. He had an unusual ability to take the ball off
the banking board, and scored many points by bounc-
ing in the rebounds. Walter Evanko assisted him at
center. His accurate passing and cool headed play-
ing made him a valuable player. Both seniors, as
are the other varsity men, they will be missed greatly
George Sopko, joe Solomon, George Artim, and
William Straslicka took care of the forward po-
sitions. George was a fine passer and dribbler, and
was good at long shots. His reliable shooting added
much to our offensive punch. joe Solomon could be
counted on to score consistently in every game and
to keep the ball moving. George Artim was most
accurate at one-hand shots from the side and raised
our score in the final tally many times. His playing
put a defensive kick to the game. Bill Straslicka's
play sparkled throughout the season. An excellent
student, he was a leader in his class.
Mike Sibal was a smart and tricky guard. With
Mike scoring heavily in every game, our team chalked
up many wins. His clever dribbling and passing
were features of every game. Bernard Bysiek was a
great booster to the team 's morale and success. His
fine defensive playing crushed many opposing teams
offenses. Our two other guards, Homer Jones and
joe Minnick, although not seeing as much action,
were nevertheless hard and dependable Cagers. Homer
was a tricky left handed dribbler, and joe Minnick
was best at the four line. Their efhciency was a snare
to the invaders.
joe Petrantone, Chris Hunter, and Bill Stras-
licka took care of the managerial posts and deserve
much credit for their fine work all season.

Our theme for this year, Hlleaching for a Star", was
the original idea of our Editor-in-Chief, Betty Mi-
lotta. To her and to Miss Potts, our faculty adviser,
most of the credit for the organization of this lfook
should be given.
Having received direction from Betty, the main
features of the Colophon were written voluntarily by
the members of the Colophon staff. The staff mem-
bers worked long and diligently, and although their
assignments were tedious, you may be sure that each
member was delighted to have been given the op-
portunity to take Part in presenting this last farewell
flourish of the senior class.
Seniors of "-ll", this Colophon was published
mainly for your beneht. lt is yours to cherish through-
out the years. We hope it will be a constant reminder
of the many happy days spent within the walls of
our Alma Mater

The I-Iurstonian is a star point to which the students
of Hurst turn their attention for round-about news.
In its filth year of publication, this paper is the best
yet, because now it is printed by a printer, just as
other leading school papers.
It is published every three weeks entirely by the
students and expresses their opinions. The paper con-
tains the usual sports, poems, humor. alumni news,
comments, coming events, club news, and every-
thing of interest to its subscribers.
The staff is composed oi' juniors and seniors in-
terested in journalism. The editor-in-chief, asso-
ciated editor, social editor, sports editor, alumni
editor, circulation manager, and assistant managers
were elected at the Hrst staff meeting. The news-
paper owes its new turn of prosperity to the advisers,
Miss L. Myers, and Mr. Batiste. Of course a paper
is not complete without that every necessary part,
the ambitious reporters, who hand in their best
news. Then there are the typists, who type all suit-
able material to be sent to the printer. The galley
sheets must be checked for errors in printing and
articles are placed in the position on respective pages
on which they appear in the final edition. These
sheets are sent back to the printer, and then a notice
appears on every bulletin board, blackboard, window
and corner. that there will be a "l-lurstonian To-
The rates are twenty-Hve cents a year or three
cents per copy. This paper surely 'ishinesm with news.

Under the faculty supervision of Mr. Nock and
lvlr, Myers, the Student Government Association
has completed its third year as the representative of
the student body.
The Student Council, governing body of the Asso-
ciation, includes a Senate and a House of Representa-
tives. Upper classmen are entitled to two Senators
from each class and two Representatives frcm each
home room, while the freshmen and sophomores are
limited to one Senator and one Representative from
each class and home room, respectively.
Meetings are run according to parliamentary law,
and are called every two weeks by the president of
the council, who must be a senior senator.
The Constitution of the Student Government
Association provides for the following standing
committees: Trafnc, Social, Assembly, and House
and Grounds. Chairmen of these committees are
appointed by the president.
lt is the function of the student council to attain
the objectives of the Student Government Association
by proposing and enforcing laws for the welfare of
the school and by regulating and encouraging social
and scholastic activities. The council is the mouth-
piece of the student body and the organ of com-
munication between the faculty and the students.
ln addition to the aiding of the traffic situation
by the installation of the hall permit system and the
I-lall Guards, it has accomplished other notable a-
chievements, which include the sponsoring of as-
semblies, the dances, and the management of the
intramural basketball tournament.

The debating season of 1940 and 19-fl has been
very successful both from the standpoint of the
valuable training received by each debater and from
the competitive angle,
The first noteworthy achievement was the selec-
tion of two debaters frrm our team on the Little
Six Debate Conference Team. Individual debaters
making this distinction were Robert Hauser. the
negative speaker. and james Metz, the afhrmative
speaker. Their rewards were as follows: Robert
Hauser redeived a reward for the most effective
speaker and .lames Metz received a gold medal for
being on the winning side. The hrst debate trophy
was won by the debate team this season and will be
shared jointly by lfranklin Township and Hurst,
In addition to winning two places on the con-
ference team. the four debaters consisting of James
Metz and Calvin lwfetz, affirmative, and Willard
Adams and Robert Hauser, negative. were successful
in winning the County Debate Tournament lneld at
Hurst, defeating the strong Monessen quartet in
the hnals. Our team also went to the quarter hnals
in the National lforensic Leagues Southwest Debate
Conference at Penn State but lost out in the state
elimination tournament to Cumberland Township,
champions of Greene County.
Mr. Silvis, the sponsor of our debate teams, and
other debaters including Dan Murtha. Betty Milotta.
Leo Kaczmarek, Betty Funkhouser, Frank Mehalov,
and Margaret Straslicka have helped in making the
Season a success.

The Ushers Club, which consists of twenty-four
boys from all classes, has been sponsored for the
past several years by Miss Barnhart.
The duties of the club members are usually con-
fined to the auditorium where they take charge at
evening performances. Miss Barnhart has trained
them to assume responsibilities and to conduct them-
selves in the proper manner while ushering a stage
crew which is responsible for the changing of scenery
between acts,and operating the lights is also main-
tained by the club. Perhaps, you have watched the
crew who have been assigned to coyer the auditorium

The Go-to-College Club is one of the brightest
groups of stars around Hurst. In the past this club
has proved its wort.h by the increasing number of
students attending various types of schools of higher
learning. The purpose is to increase the capability
for the life work which each student has chosen as
most suitable to his type of personality.
This year the club consists only of seniors who are
planning to attend colleges, universities or any type
of higher institution. Through the sponsor, Mr.
Mullin, it has had representatives from colleges and
universities in this vicinity speak concerning the
courses offered, recognition by other colleges, en-
trance requirements, annual expenses and scholar-
ships. These interviews prove benehcial to this
group, because it not only helps them to decide on a
college career, but their adaptability to certain
fields and the quality of work expected of them.
When it comes to taking scholarship examinations,
they really shine. Students volunteer to take them
to find their ranking among students of other high
schools, and also their possibilities of succeeding in
college work. Several from this group also registered
to take the Senatorial Scholarship Examination.
Through the representatives from different col-
leges, the college obtains names of those interested
in the courses which they offer, and the members
receive booklets and information concerning their
interests. We are sure they are going to be "shooting
stars" in their careers.
"Parlez-vous francais?" is a common phrase among
the junior French students, while the seniors are
busy translating "Les Pechesn, 'Boum-Bounn, and
"L'abbe Constantin". The club, under the sponsor-
ship of Madame Sowash, shows its capability of
speaking French by responding to roll call, with
"ici" or "present", Meetings are conducted in
French, including the minutes and the business.
The purpose of the club is not only to acquaint
the members with French customs and habits, but
also to give them a better speaking and reading
knowledge of French.
The club has purchased several books on French
customs and plays. It also receives A'Le Petit Jour-
nal", a newspaper written entirely in French, which
is published bi-monthly.
Everyone took part in a very enjoyable Christmas
party, at which stories concerning Christmas in
France were told and Christmas Carols translated
into French were sung. Santa Claus distributed
gifts and refreshments were served.
Vocabulary bees proved amusing as well as edu-
cational when the juniors were willing to stand their
intelligence against the seniors. All those who be-
long to this club are certainly proud to display their
French Club pins which seem to give them a feeling
The seniors will be honored to have the capable
juniors take their places, with hopes that the stars
of the sophomore class will feel as though they should
join this twinkling constellation of French stars,

The Library Club of Hurst High School, consisting
of twenty-five members, is practically the only club
that functions every period of every day. The mem-
bers serve as library assistants certain periods each
day under the supervision of the librarian, Miss
Wilda Myers. To encourage the desire for reading
better books and to relieve the strain on the librarian
are two of the main purposes of this noteworthy
organization. Sophomores, juniors, and Seniors are
the only ones that are accepted, and each year at
the first meeting, the new members are taught the
fundamentals of caring for the library and the books
in it, Meetings are held every two weeks at which
time part of the period is devoted to business while
the program committee ends the period with some
sort of recreation.
Then, too, the members have sponsored several
social functions, Two roller skating parties and a
Valentines Day party were enjoyed by the Club and
their guests. Also, the Library Club helps with the
decorating of the library for certain holidays. For
Christmas, white pine boughs, a small Christmas tree
covered with minature "best-sellers", and a letter to
Santa Claus with book requests made the library
look very "Christmasy". The library assistants are
noted for their courtesy and efficiency and all in all,
the Library Club is of vital importance to our school
since we dould not do without those pleasant-faced,
always-ready-to-help amateur librarians.

His ary Club
The American History Club was organized last year
by a group of volunteers from the junior history
classes. Officers were elected and plans were drawn
up for the meetings. The group agreed that in order
to be a member in good standing it would be necessary
to attend the meetings regularly as well as participate
in all club activities The main objective of the club
is to visit places of historic interest. After much
discussion it was decided that rather than take short
tours it would be much more desirable, following the
example of many other such organizations, in other
leadings schools, to visit our national capitol.
With this objective in mind the club sponsored
various activities throughout the year in order to
raise sufhcient money. The A. E. Troutman Company
very graciously styled dresses at a showing of spring
fashions, the proceeds of which went to the club.
A series of parties was then held in the Activities
Building with Miss Fisher. The sponsor of the club,
and the members acting as hosts and hostesses. At
these parties the guests were ably entertained with
party games and dancing, the music for which was
furnished by Bernard Bysieks recording set. After
a lucious lunch all went home happy in the thought
that soon the History Club would sponsor another
such party. In basketball season the club treasury
picked up a few pennies from the sale of hot dogs,
pop, and candy.
With spring and the treasury embursed, the club
members are busy rounding out their plans to visit
Gettysburg and Washington, DC. with its Lincoln
Memorial, Arlington Cemetery, White House, the
Capitol Building, and the many other places which
every citizen desires to see as they are monuments

The majorettes have received the well earned
applause of all who have seen them perform, This
newly organized group added much of interest to the
band at the football games. The twirling batons
caught the gleam of the sun's rays as the six sopho-
more girls followed the drum major, Richard Busdosh,
down the field ahead of the band. At the half they
furnished novel entertainments. One of their most
outstanding performances was acting as bell ringers
while the band in bell formation played "The Bells
of St. IVlary's".
The majorettes very willingly have assisted with
assembly programs whenever called upon. At their
first assembly program, they jokingly were asked
if they wanted someone in the orchestra pit to toss
up the batons as they dropped them. The girls
proved that they could manage even the very tlifh-
cult tricks without losing their batons.
Their skill and dexterity has been gained only by
hard work. When they were freshmen, they began
to be trained by lVlr. Green, It was a moment of
triumph when they were permitted to wear their
new uniforms of white trimmed with gold braid.
From the red feathers on their hats to their white
leather boots, they were perfection itself.
We are very glad that they will be with us for
two more years, and we are expecting to see our
majorettes in action many times in the future.
The Hurst Band, under the direction of Mr. Green,
is composed of seventy members. Scarlet uniforms,
prancing majorettes, and stirring music are indi-
cations that the Hurst Band is on the march. At all
football games, in all kinds of weather, these hardy
members marched in intricate formation, Six new
majorettes in white and gold uniforms completed
the personnel this year. They performed at the head
of the band with the drum major, Richard Busdosh.
At Christmas time the music and dramatic de-
partments presented a splendid program. The band
entertained with a delightful concert. On March
I8 the band presented a full evenings entertainment
of music to a well filled auditorium of enthusiastic
friends. Later the Hurst band traveled to Ebens-
burg, Pa. to present a concert. In the combined
band there were one hundred and sixty-five members.
Each year awards are given to the boy and girl
who have been outstanding in music during their
four years at Hurst. The band members this year
awarded the honors to Dorothy Fultz and john
Band training is now begun in the grade schools
before the student reaches high school. Thevlunior
Band has done unusually well this year, and many
of its members next year will join the Hurst Band
as experienced members.

In vocational training. the Home Economics
girls have completed their third successful year.
Under the sponsorship of Mrs. Kapalka, the club
meets in the Homestead School Building and is
transported via the school bus,
The members have chosen a favorite flower,
bachelor-button, and favorite colors , . . The
aim of this club is to be star economists, so that they
may plan' proper menues and make their ovun stylish
clothes which give that Uwell-dressed look".
These girls are glad to be helpful in making our
school programs and plays colorful by making cos-
tumes to fit the occasions. Ready to be of service,
they smilingly helped to prepare and serve banquets
of various organizations. They have learned to plan
their days so well that there is plenty of time to do
the 'imustsn and still time to prepare a tasty meal
Special individual attention is given to the colors
a girl wears well, and also the styles of clothes in
which she looks best. A home economic girl can
usually be recognized by her neatness.
These lone-stars realize that they are going to
have real competition when they take their places
among other stars of the universe, and so, practice
now what they have learned, so that they will know
how to apply it in later life.

Our tapping stars, led by lvlrs. Carman, can be
heard doing a rbythmical tap above the music ol a
dreamy waltz. The dancers are divided into two
groups, the advanced and the beginners. Of course
the girls hope that, in time, they will be able to do
time steps, bells and perhaps wings, just as Eleanor
Powell and other famous tappers.
The advanced group is comprised of the upper
elassmen, who have been in the club in previous
years or perhaps in an operetta or minstrel. liven
those who have taken lessons, enjoy showing their
ability as a terpsiehorean, They have hnished the
tap to walt: time and began on a military tap.
The beginners are those who envy the advanced
group, and in order not to be 'shown up", have
joined the club too. They take the steps very slowly
at first, increase in speed at each practice, and learn
so rapidly that they show promise as great or greater
than those of the advanced class.
As soon as a few girls find a vacant corner, they
begin tapping their feet in rhythm, il lor nothing
more than"to keep in trim". lt may sound like a
woodpecker at hrst, but alter a while you too, leel
like dancing. The club is composed entirely ol girls,
but we are in hopes that the boys will take an interest.
WHAT A LIFE"
The juniors under the direction of lN1iss Barnhart,
were very glad to present "What a Life", made
popular by "the boy who lives on your own street,"
All the troubles began when Henry disturbed a
study hall. From then on, he got into mischief faster
than he could get out. ln order to take his best
girlfriend, Barbara Pearson, to the spring dance, he
promised to make the highest mark in the history
exam. He "borrowed" some of his answers from
George Bigelow, making things much more compli-
cated. All the while Mr. Ferguson, a substitute
detective, and Miss Wheeler, the music teacher were
searching for several lost band instruments. The
mystery was solved by a pawn ticket, that was
afterwards admitted by George to be his. Henry
finally "found" two tickets dropped by Mr. Nelson,
the assistant principal, Haccidentally on purpose.
Altogether the play was most interesting, enjoy-
able and full of fun from beginning to end. The
juniors certainly shone in this play.

"Miss Cherryblossomn, a musical comedy in three
acts, was presented under the direction of Mrs.
Russell, Mrs. Garmon, and Mr. Green,
The entire operetta took place in a japanese tea-
garden. Cherry trees behind a picket fence Howers
to scent the air, and japanese lanterns created a
beautiful and romantic stage setting. Miss Evelyn
Barnes, an American girl born in japan whose parents
died of fever, is brought up as a ,Japanese maiden.
Her father's secretary uses her property for his own
ends. When Evelyn, who is known as Cherryblossom,
is about eighteen, Worthington and his secretary
returns to japan on his yacht with a party of Ameri-
can friends,. One of them john Henry Smith, or
jack, falls in love with Cherry and wishes to marry
her, but Kokemo, who has brought her up as his
own daughter, wants her to marry Togo, a rich
politician. The action of the piece centers around
jack's efforts to outwit Togo and Kokemo.

The final theatrical production of the class of '41
was 'Spring Fever", under the direction of Miss
Mrs. Bertha Howard and her two children, jack
and Peggy are living with Eulalie, Berthas old-maid
sister after Mr. Howards death. jack has an inven-
tion by which he expects to make millions, that is-
if his mother would only provide enough money to
put it on the market. Peggy begins to make hair
tonic that did wonders for lvlr. Knight, but a mistake
in the making of some of it, caused a neighbor lady's
hair to fall out. jack asks Tessie, the maid, for some
money, but she is so lazy that she doesn't even
listen while being spoken to. Spring Billington,
jacks weakness, who insists on popping in at the
wrong moment, comes in once while jack is trying on
a dress for Donna, his sister-in-law, wife of his brother
Price, and again when Peggy accidently plunks her
hat on his head. Peggy, trying to do a good turn for
her Aunt Euly, writes a proposal of marriage to
Mr. Knight, signing Eulie's name, and one to Euly,
signing Mr. Knight's name, but they are glad she
did. With the help of Ray Butler, jacks pal, they
finally get the invention,-an electric toothbrush

The "star" club of Hurst is the Choral Club which
ranks first in membership, because it is composed of
nearly a hundred beautifully blended voices, Not
only has it increased in membership since last year,
but also in a wider range of different presentations.
Its first successful presentation was the Christmas
program, in which the chorus rendered Christmas
Carols and presented a play entitled "They That Sit
in Darkness", the cast of which was chosen from its
The operetta, "Miss Cherryblossomu was one of
the best ever presented at I-Iurst. Its theme, being
japanese, insured colorful scenes of the background
and also the costumes and fans of the Ceisha girls
and the formal apparel of the Americans.
Mr. Green, as well as the entire chorus were pleased
to have six representatives at the "All-Western
Chorus" at Ligonier, in which schools from all over
Western Pennsylvania took part.
This club meets every Monday and Wednesday
in the Activities Building. All students who were
in the chorus last year and still attend schools are
in the chorus this year, if they wished to be. Tryouts
were held for anyone who would like to join, but
only those suitable were selected.
These stars hope to show their ability in singing
pleasing numbers at the annual baccalaureate and
commencement exercises. We know the public never
tires of their music.
