Parlez-vous francais? lf not, stop in and visit the lunior French
students in Room 7. They will soon help you to understand and to
speak the French language. This year the French Club consists of
junior students alone. Only French I is being taught since there
were no French I classes last year.
Under the sponsorship of Miss Keenan, the club demonstrated
its French ability before the entire student body by presenting some
French plays and customs in an assembly program. The club tis
known as Le Cercle d' Amitie and is one of the most interesting and
informative organizations at Hurst.
With the assistance of their able teacher, Miss Keenan, the
members of "El Club espanol" learn the customs and ways of our
Pan American neighbors. The club motto is: "Hay un gran trecho
por espanol," which means "lt's a long way through Spanish." This
year's club activities included the Christmas dance, skating parties,
and several assembly programs. Many members of the club are
corresponding with a Spanish speaking boy or girl.
When those from the Spanish l class are initiated into the club,
a Week of fun is had by all. The Senior year members receive pins
at the annual spring banquet.

All is quiet in the upper hall as one passes the library. The stu-
dents seem to enjoy going there, for it has such a pleasant, inviting
atmosphere. The Library Club, consisting of five members from each
class, is the only club that functions every period of every day. The
members serve as assistants certain periods each day under the
supervision of the librarian, Mrs. Evans. lt is the duty of these people
to help keep the library running efficiently and assist the students
in locating reference material and selecting fiction books.
The beautiful pictures hanging on the Walls were presented to
the library this year. All Hurst students are proud of their library
and take care of its books and furnishings.

The N. F. L. is composed of a small group of ambitious students
:selected from a large group of public speakers. Although this is one
of the small clubs, it is by far one of the most active.
Members have the opportunity to earn points in all types of in-
terscholastic debates and speech tournaments. At these tourna-
ments all the phases of speech are covered: extemporaneous, dram-
atic, humorous, oratorical, original, and debate. A student must earn
twenty points to obtain membership. As a token of reward the sen-
iors receive the club pin. The best speaker of each year has his or
heir name engraved on the club trophy.
"A Date With ludy," a three act comedy by Aleen Leslie, was
presented by the senior class under the direction of Miss Fisher, on
February l8, l947. The play was adapted from the radio program
of the same name, and revolves around Iudy Foster, a vivacious,
impressionable, teenfage miss, whose get-rich-quick schemes made
her entire family the laughing stock of town.

Hats Off To The Champs!
The i946 football season opened on August
21, with many enthusiastic boys reporting for
practice. For the first time in the history or
Hurst High School, the boys were taken to a
football camp at Trent, Pa. With high hopes for
the season, the boys spent two weeks of rugged
training for the rough season which lay ahead
of them. A few fell by the wayside, but this did
not discourage the more determined ones.
They continued their regular practice in order to
do their share in bringing glories to their Alma
When the whistle blew for the opening
kickoff, it was the Hurst Hurricanes against the
East Huntingdon Bulldogs. After the first game
it could easily be seen that our coaches were
producing a varsity which was willing and
eager to do their duty. The small, but fighting
Bulldogs, went down to defeat with our Hurri'
canes piling up the score of 32-U.
Our next encounter was with our neighbor-
ing Latrobe eleven. Due to Hurst's failure to
kick on the fourth down, the Wildcats were sent
deep into Hurst territory to score and score
again. The Hurricanes carrie back to score but
the game ended 26-6.
The largest crowd to ever witness a foot-
ball game at Cffut field were on hand to see the
Greensburg Lions down the Hurst eleven by a
7-O margin. Both teams gave all they had till
the last minute of play, when the Lions finally
scored their one and only touchdown. The con-
version was good, giving the Lions a 7-O victory.
Our next game was played against the
mighty undefeated Dunbar Mules. All scoring
was done in the second quarter of play, with
Dunbar scoring first and Hurst following up. lt
was a hard fought second half, with neither
team being able to score. There were no long
runs or spectacular plays for either team. lt
was a battle between two hard hitting, hard
driving teams which ended in a 6-6 tie.
The next week, Hurst played the Ieannette
layhawks. leannette, being too powerful,
downed the Hurricanes by a score of 25-6. The
following week the Hurst eleven defeated the
Derry Township eleven by a score of 20-13.
The game with South Union was a rugged battle
all the way, but ended with the Hurricanes
chalking up another victory with a score of 18-6.
The greatest game of the season was
played with the Bobcats of Mt. Pleasant. A
capacity crowd witnessed the battle of the rivals
which showed both teams fighting tirelessly.
The Hurst eleven proved too powerful for the
Bobcats and downed them in a thrill packed
game by a score of l3'6.
Our last game was played with the Scot-
dale Scotties in a sea of mud. This game was
the deciding factor for the Class A County
Championship, which was won by the Hurst
Hurricanes by downing the Scotties by a score
of l2-7. This marked the end of an extensive
campaign for Hurst and another successful sea-
son was chalked up for the Alma Mater.

As the final whistle blew at the Hurst-Derry
Twp. game, the curtain dropped on Hurst's Bas-
ketball season for l947. For the Hurricane Bas-
lceteers it was a most unpredictable, trying year.
From the start of the season the boys
worked under difficult and unusual playing
conditions. The floor of the Hurst gymnasium
was being rebuilt which necessitated practicing
away from home. Each evening the boys,
along with their new coach, Mr. Stephen
Tomechko, boarded the bus and headed for the
Mt. Pleasant Armory. This made the day seem
endless, but our basketeers were ever faithful
to their Alma Mater. They put in long prac-
tice periods and strove valiantly to gain recog-
nition against the teams they met in tough
competitive games. Although their victories
were few, we feel that they deserve a tribute
of praise for their earnest endeavor.
The experience gained by the boys, through
their introduction into W. P. l. A. L. Section X
will be of great value to them next season. We
are certain that next year will produce a team
that will account for many great victories.

"Take Me Out To The Ball Gclme"'
The lost bciseholl cgonre of the seoson rnorked the finish of
fl hord fought series of Arneriods fovorite sport. Section lX
provided plenty of tough competition for the Hurricanes through-
out the seoson. Not only do the boys who oortioipote in this
qreftt sport do Credit to our Notionol pfrstirne, but also to thernf
selves und the school they represent. Even with o veterdn
teorn it wus still rouqh soiling for the "Hurst Nine."
'lhtcinq core of the infield, We found Emil "Hook" Kirik ot
the 'hot r'orner', while foe "Monk" Brosky hdndled the duties
of shortstop. Leo Keep ond Dick Taylor olternoted ot second.
Hurry "Phooey" Miller ond Leonord "Goofy" Kopcho did the
some ot the nurnher one sockg Emil "Bunny" Lucos wos behind
the plote. foe "folds" loworski ond Regis Kelley handled the
deliveries. Solok, Choppo, Wolk, Yosher ond Ed Cibulos Corn-
pleted the tectnt.
The post record is one of which We con he proud. Whot
the future holds is uncertoin. The coorchinq and the spirit is
hero only thnr- will tell.
