THEY DESIGNED A TOP YEAR
H. V. HERLINGER
When a world at war brought to you, the stu-
dents of Mt. Lebanon High School, a challenge
to assume duties and responsibilities over and
above your regular school tasks, you were quick
to accept the challenge and adapt your thinking
and actions in line with its requirements.
You have accepted changes in curriculum, you
have participated in civilian defense activities, in
war stamp sales, in the various rationing pro-
grams, in scrap drives, and in many other war
time activities with enthusiasm and vigor. Your
contribution to the war effort has been high in
quality and quantity. Your community is proud
of your Work, of your attitude and of your loyalty
in time of War as they were in time of peace.
Your school is proud of you in that we believe
you exemplify all that is best in citizenship in a

Have you ever wondered what made our
schools tick and who was responsible for the
equipment, curriculum, and special projects that
touch our school lives? The answer is our School
The nine members of this board have the job
of running our school system smoothly and effi-
ciently, plus the problem of financing it carefully.
'Work continues outside regular meetings, for each
member is a member of one or more committees
working on special reports. To inform the resi-
dents of Mt. Lebanon of the activities of our
schools, the board each year prints the "Our
Schools" booklets. One of the board's projects,
which perhaps seemed most interesting to us, was
the building of the athletic field, but because of
war-time priorities the field has not yet been
Whatever have been its difficulties, the school
board has continued to direct the policy of our

Secretaries Miss Medinq and Miss Hill
Miss Hill and Miss Meding, whose faces
were familiar to most of us, acted as school
secretaries for the year i942-43. Despite more
important duties they were always ready with
a smile to answer our countless questions,
OK. our excuses, or lend us money for lunch.

More than two years
have passed since my
departure from the
friendly halls of Mt.
Lebanon High School.
One of my keenest
satisfactions during that
time is the splendid
manner in which the
sons and daughters of
the old school have ac-
quitted themselves in
this time of national
Whatever destiny the
future may hold, of this
much l am certainp that
Mt. Lebanon High

represented with valor,

e are living in a time when almost the entire world is at war.
Every citizen must be keenly aware of the trend of developments
in this critical period and he must keep constantly abreast of the times
in order that his preparation may be the best possible. We have
attempted to keep that basic training undisturbed and to add to the
program. This extra load you have accepted willingly and you may
be certain that you will be much better prepared for it.
Remember that never before has such an opportunity for service
presented itself. Our efforts must be directed into those channels which
will permit us to do the most good for the most people. Your training
is of paramount importance. Make the most of what you have.

MISS FISHER MISS DUFFY MRS. MOWATT
Home-School Visitor Attendance Secretary Supervisor of Testing
"lf a square were changed to a circle of the
opposite color with lines perpendicular to the
diameter, what would a triangle, similarly
changed, become?" Remember such brain-
teasers? By inquiring a bit, you would have
found that Mrs. Mowatt, a newcomer from Pitts
psychology department, was responsible for all
those rather baffling psychological tests. She also
gave individual personality and vocational apti-
tude tests. Her schedule included the evaluation
of tests of the elementary schools and a survey
of college work done by Mt. L. graduates.

ELLA B. ION
When Miss Fisher left for Slippery Rock State
Teachers' College, Miss Gordon came from the
Iunior l-ligh to be our Home-School Visitor. As
Miss Gordon said, her work was chiefly "to make
friendly home calls and extend a cordial welcome
to new families in the community who enter stu-
dents in our schools." lt was Miss Gordon who
would phone or call at our homes when We were
ill to offer sympathy and any possible assistance.
She also helped check attendance and issued
work certificates to job-hunting students.
"l have to stop at the Attendance Office." How
many of us have said that when we wanted to
plan our courses, to have our schedules changed,
to get back into school after an absence or even
to get back into classl lt was Miss lon, our busy
vice-principal, who answered our questions. Be-
sides planning the schedules for about twelve
hundred of us students and fifty-one teachers,
Miss lon sponsored the Class Rank and Achieve-
ment Committees and the Attendance Squad.
This year she added the new task of arranging
those classes for Messenger Training and First
Aid as a part of civilian defense.
Miss Duffy, Miss lon's faithful secretary,
helped to manage the Attendance Squad, com-
posed of about twenty-five girls, who collected
and filed the attendance cards and kept track of
all our comings and goings.

lf you ever got a little slip saying, "Report to
Student Court, Room 5," it was a sure sign your
"case" was being brought up. Anything from
chewing gum in class to breaking a window was
tried by this "law-conscious eight" sponsored by
Miss Taylor. The members of the court, com-
posed of one member of the lower classes and
two from each of the Senior classes, settled dis-
putes either by arbitration or by a "stiff sentence."
The court was a rather young organization, hav-
ing been started in April of '42, Some days there
were no trials, other times the jury and judges
were overworked! The court tried cases Tuesday
after school and the judges and other court mem-
bers had a closed "conference" Monday in ac-
tivities period. So beware, kids-"crime" does
"The meeting will now come to order. Will the
secretary please read the minutes of the last
With these words, Executive-Boarders went into
another of their weekly huddles. Business ranged
from formation of a new squad to drafting of
workers for the next dance. Under Miss Taylor's
guidance, however, all was efficiently, effectively
Aside from sponsoring various school functions,
E. B. announced formation of the Achievement
Committee and the Medical, Girls' Gym, and
Home Room Bulletin Board Squads. The Rifle
Club was elevated to the status of other Mt. Lebo
All 'n all, Executive-Boarders from 12A to lOB,
had quite a snappy time of it but did a swell job
of keeping our A. M. ticking smoothly.

Written by Miss Katheran Stoner for the 1942 commencement exercises, Detour l943
frenamed to fit the yearl expresses the thoughts, the feelings of our graduating class.
We thank Miss Stoner for saying so ably what we feel.
The clock turns back-
Let time stand still in your mind.
Thoughts can travel back as well as forward.
lt is seventeen years ago, tonight.
America is in the midst of the gay and reckless twenties,
And the Class of 1943 has just received its first recognition-
A birth certificate.
l wonder what was in your mind then-Mother? Dad?
You must have planned-oh-a thousand things
For us-this class of '43.
Together your two heads plotted the life
We'd lead thru these years.
Maybe you saw it there before you-stretching away from 1926-
The road we'd travel-smooth, and white, and shining.
You'd work hard to make it so.
For us-you'd have life easy-the pursuit of happiness
Would be our only care.
And this, our Commencement, should be a milestone
On the smooth fair way ahead.
The Commencement of a bright and easy future
ln the brave fair world that you would give us.
And now, it's 1943-and the road you planned
Has changed its course.
Not for us will be that smooth and easy way
You would have given us.
Our Commencement is on a path--rock strewn and steep-
Knd there-just a bit ahead it makes a turn so sharp-
That where it leads is lost from sight.
But perhaps you think we start with fear:
That we resent the easy way we did not get.
lf that's the case-then let us plan for you.
When, if ever, was youth afraid?
And did you think we'd falter now?
Why-this is America-yours-and now
By right of the effort we will give to keep it-
Ours-a world not lax and easy-
A place just now, of blood, and sweat, and tears.
But think! Man has never thought less of that
Which takes the most from him to keep it.
Are we, your children, any less in your thoughts
Because at times we proved a problem-
Because of our illness that brought you fear and worry?
And so it is with us.
What we are called upon to do may not be easy-
But-the lesson we shall learn early that
Saint Paul told the world centuries ago:
"We glory in tribulation-knowing that tribulation worketh patience:
And patience, experience: and experience, hope."
What greater gift could it be ours to bring the world?
For now, no matter what our age, the times have made us men.
-by Miss Katheran Stoner.

stage he was in such a rush to make one ot his running exits
that the scenery tattered dangerously, and all hands were
summoned to hold it up.
Ye olde English custom ot serving aiternoon tea was
still in vogue and not on the ration list for the lanuary
Senior A's. As has been the custom in iormer years, the
Senior B's gave a tea tor the Senior A girls and their
mothers. Aiter a skit in which

The l2B's entertained lanuary grads at the Senior Tea.
Senior girls and their mothers lined up at the tea,
FEASTED, JIVED, COMMENCED
"A" lunch period, and ravenous Mt. Lebanonites were strolling down the hall to the cafe-
teria, when their dreams of macaroni and jello were shattered by a roar from behind. Upon
inspection, this tidal wave of black and white proved to be the Senior "A's," who, receiving
interference from neither man nor undergrad, clattered on down to the annual Senior lunch-
Upon reaching their destination, appropriately decorated in black and white, the S's
were escorted to the section reserved especially for them. After feasting regally, music was
the next order of the day. So-Seniors serenaded all the lucky ll:45-12:15 diners with our
national anthem, "Neath Cedars Stately," and various other selections-old, new, and origi-
nal. According to custom, all present in the cafeteria remained standing during the extem-
poraneous concert. After this gala occasion, "S.A's" returned to afternoon classes, with vis-
ions of the eve's promising events dancing merrily in their noodles.
That old saying, "I'll go even if it kills me," nearly became a reality for many Seniors who
attended the prom. Everything was against them, the weather and the government. Those
who remained in school to change into evening clothes after the banquet, were peacefully do-
ing so, when a sudden blast from the air raid siren warned them of a black out. Have you
ever tried to dress in the dark? Well, somehow they did it and sang at the same time. The
boys, in their room, even had Ackie Copetas reciting for them in Greek. And the Seniors who
had gone home to change into silver slippers and tulle had to hoof it back amid snow drifts
and ice, because Uncle Sam had instituted a new regulation stating: "No pleasure driving!"
The small gym, decorated in black and white, was a welcome sight and all remained for the
extra hour which was allowed because of the air raid practice,
You never know what hidden talent may be revealed at a senior banquet, and the janu-
ary Seniors "gave out" with some real surprises. They had second Harry Iameses, Eddie Duch-
ins, Benny Goodmans, and so on. But there could be only one Bill Garner, and he was there
in person as Master of Ceremonies. This Senior A introduced all acts as well as led one him-
self. He chose different Seniors to tell what they thought they would be twenty-five years
from then, and he got everything from senators to ditch-diggers. George McCall again popped
into the limelight, but this time he recited poetry. The musical revue was really filled with
surprises. Larry Rank, Vince Laschied, and others imitated famous band leaders: Lou
Caste played his B-flat clarinet: four of the fellows substituted for the lnk Spots on the pro-
gram. lf they didn't have everything "from soup to nuts" to eat, they certainly had it for en-
"But it just doesn't fit! Has anyone a size 7 hat that they'll trade for a size 5? l bet l'll
trip just when I get my diploma."
"Miss Stoner, which side should the tassel be on-the left or the right?"
Seventy nervous seniors plus that last minute check to see that everything goes right-
Everyone filed onto the stage, and then-the curtain went up. Keep your feet still and
straight-sit erect-look intelligent. Gee, there's so much to remember.
Now the speaker. Oh, my gosh! All those faces-and they're looking at me! Oh, no-
no, it's the speaker. What a relief. O-o-oh! the speaker's done.
Miss Stoner has finished calling her group-we're next. Miss Pickens now. Oh! there
it is-my name. Walk slowly, smile. Take your diploma, thank Mr. Herlinger. Oh yes, turn
the tassel. Sit down. Whew! lt's over! l'm a graduate. But, gee! I don't feel any differ-

A SENIOR'S DAY OF "DAZE"
ONDAY again. And here you are, groaning
as usual about unfinished homework.
There's enough of it to kill any able-bodied per-
son. And from the looks of it, the trig will do just
0You intend to be a good little citizen and partici-
pate in homeroom m eeting, but resolution is
nipped in the bud as you realize, horrified, that
the dreaded English test pounces today. So-for
the next hour, you gotto make like a brain. Be-
sides, presy won't mind. He'd be more surprised
if you acted like a human being-for a change.
The poor guy is the "lone ranger" of conversa-
tion-he oughta be named Hamlet. And all he'1l
get out of it is the galloping fidgets. Too soon
comes the minute bell. You try to persuade your-
self that the clocks are screwy, but that doesn't
OSuddenly there's the test staring you in the
face. You wonder if the fellow beside you studied.
But as you watch him reading it, he keeps picking
his jaw up off the floor. H-m-m-m, some true and
false. Eenie-meanie-minie-moe - well, all fin-
ished. Oh, completion-let's forget about that
and do a little matching. You can use your pow-
ers of deduction on that! Oh-oh, the minute
bell! You lay your paper feebly on the desk and
wonder how soon the little black wagon will be
iStudy beckons. You intend to do a neglected
book report and other odds 'n ends. B-u-t-your
seat is next to the window, and you know that
you'd better go to the library. Such an intellec-
tual atmosphere there-maybe you can get the
latest copy of "Life." . . .
0Trig next. You've been Miss Smith's target re-
cently, and you're hoping she's tired of wrong
answers. Besides, you haven't the assignment.
Miraculously, you know question No. l. But
the kid next you had his mit up first-he always
does when you know an answer. That heel is
your Achilles! A half-hour later, and the sus-
pense is getting you down. The mathomaniac in
front of you is paged. He's a big guy-maybe if
you hunch down behind him, teacher won't see
you. Fifteen minutes later, and you're wondering
if you can stave off an imminent heart-attack.
Suddenly Mr. Horsman beams in, announcing
that Pontiac, license No. DC838 must be moved
immediately. Yours! You leave the room behind
in a split second ....
0Lunch, and you come and get it. On good be-
havior today, you disable only four instead of
the usual five victims. A figure looms in your
path, and to your amazement, remains there. You
inform it that you're a Senior, and then proceed
to tell it off good and proper. Then Mr. Horsman
turns around and tells you off. After considerable
deliberation you choose six cents worth of vita-
mins in the form of jello salad. Being as you are
the end man on the C period line, there wasn't
much deliberation after all ....
'That jello made you powerful sleepy, and
grogginess persists through Spanish and Social-
ogy. You show life at 3:15 however, as someone
asks you to go up-street. As you plow through
the lobby, you are proudly conscious of having
accomplished much in school today.

Biology Gave "Cross-Section"

Latin Got 10B Spotlight
Latin and the Romans got their

Translations held sway, and

OUR FAMOUS FOURTEEN . . .
Lanny and Lucy Lebanon saw many of Coach Luecht's prote-
ges earn fame on the gridiron in the l942 season. Bob Buckett, bet-
ter known as "Bucketts," turned some of the l st performances of
the season as he alternated between guard and end. Beside Buck-
etts in the line was red-headed Bob Clatty, stellar tackle, who led
the Mounties' offensive endeavors with his fine blocking. Playing
next to "Clatts" at end was pugnacious Acky Copetas, one of the
hardest hitting blockers and tacklers ever to show on the local
Frank Corbett, at quarterback, heaved those thrill-packed touch-
down passes to Leonard DeLonga, versatile lunior end. The two
smallest men of the squad were Ioe F erraro and Chuck Friday. loe
alternated at guard, making himself stand out with his pile driving
tackles on defense, while on the offense he consistently cleared the
way for the fleet-footed Mountie backs with his fine blocking. Chuck
Friday, hard hitting quarterback, proved himself to be one of the
best blockers on the team.
Working at guard throughout the season was lunior Tom Han-
over, a newcomer to the local sports scene. One of the few Iuniors
to crash the football headlines, Tom consistently turned in fine per-
formances. Bob Ienner, at the terminal post, proved his merit time
and time again as he broke up enemy offensive forays with his
bone crushing tackles, while he doubled up as a passer and pass
receiver scoring several times on passes he received from his team-
mates. At the halfback position fleet-footed Tommy Laboon turned
in some of the finest performances recorded on the local gridiron
this season, when he worked Coach Luecht's tricky formations
to score repeatedly.
Pullback "Tubs" Lang practically won the Dormont game for
us single handed with his excellent kicking. Tubs was a mainstay
on the offense and held up his side of the line on the defense with
his fine blocking of the line. Iohn Murphy, stellar tackle, better
known as "Mury," was one of our strongest men on the defense as
he drove into enemy backfields to stop the opposition dead in their
At center, Don Owen showed up particularly well in the New
Castle game when he accounted for over half the tackles made.
Don was as cool a center as we have had in many a day and
showed up best when under pressure.
One of the best players ever to grace a local gridiron was
Capt. Iohnny Ulcxm, speedy halfback who was the sparkplug of the
team. A crafty, tricky, runner, lohn was the fastest and hardest run-
ning back on the tc n. While not standing high in the scoring col-
umn lohn was rgsponsible for setting up many of our touchdowns,
either with his fine open field running or his smart choice of plays,
as he called all Mountie offensive plays.

. . . ON THE GRIDIRON
Mt. Lebanon opened the football season with her
traditional rivals, Dormont. The Bulldogs had one
of the best teams ever, and the Blue Devils had a
hard time subduing the Dormonters 7 to 6. The
Mounties were kept out of serious trouble by the
excellent kicking of Tubsy Lang.
ln the second tilt of the season the Mounties over-
powered a strong Westinghouse team, that later
won the City Championship. Although l4 to O was
not a large margin, the Mounties seemed to regard
this as a practice game for the coming W.P.l.A.L.
The first double "A" game was with Mononga-
hela, in which the Blue Devils tallied 32 points to
their opponents' O. Laboon personally took three of
the touchdowns over on wide reverses.
New Castle overcame the Blue Devils 20 to 6 in
the first defeat in three years on the regular sched-
ule. New Castle spurted ahead in the first half by
l3 points. In the second half the Mounties came out
with renewed spirit. The gridders marched down
the field for a touchdown in the first few minutes of
the third period. With very little delay they secured
the ball and again started down the field for the
tying points. But as they neared the goal line, o
fumble ruined their chances, New Castle scoring
another touchdown to sew up the game.
Returning home the gridders avenged their defeat
at New Castle by overthrowing Trinity l9 to U.
Despite their 240 pound fullback Trinity could not
stand against the Mounties' fast-charging line.
Washington visited Mt. Lebanon and returnec
home with a 6 to O victory. Not until the last perioc
did Washington push over their 6 points. t
Enraged by two defeats the Mounties came baclf
to vanquish a strong German Township team 20 t
U in their last divisional game. This marked th
fifth victory and made the difference between
good and a bad season for the Blue Devils.
Canonsburg was scheduled at the last minute tc
replace the game with Oliver, which had had to be
called off. The second and third teams had an op
portunity to show what they could do, Mt. Lebanor
winning 32 to 6.
Coach Luecht considered this a very good season
keeping in mind that it was one of the hardes
schedules Mt. Lebanon ever played.

Under the new leadership ot Coach "Speed"
Clark the Mounties marched through one ot the
most successful basketball seasons in the history
ot Mt. Lebanon. The Blue Devils started their
season by defeating seven non-league opponents,
one ot which was a powerful alumni squad. Sev-
eral complete teams ot previous years took part.
The quintet went through a l3 game winning
streak, defeating Stowe, Cratton, Coraopolis, Car-
negie, Dormont, and McKees Rocks. At the end
of lanuary, each opponent had been taced once.
The Mounties, having broken their winning streak,

Lebanon pulled ahead in the section race when
Brentwood lost to Coraopolis. Things, however,
were too good to last. McKees Rocks surprised
everyone by a 38 to 32 victory over Mt. Lebanon.
This defeat put the Blue Devils tie for tirst place
with Brentwood again. Brentwood was the last
game ot the season and would have been the de-
cisive battle it a technicality in the eligibility ot
two first-stringers had not ruled the Blue Devils
out ot the race. Discouraged and weakened by
the sudden turn oi luck and by the loss ot two
starting players, the Mounties dropped the last
game to Brentwood 40 to 35.

Five boys held their positions on the first team
practically the whole season. ln the center posi-
tion was lanky Bob Dickson. Bob stood about six
foot six and proved to be very valuable under
the basket. Although Coach Clark's system had
the boys playing different positions on the de-
fense from on the offense, generally speaking,
Bob and Dick Andres were forwards, while Bar-
brow and Feisley held the guard positions. Bob
Andres, although rather short, kept his opponent
guessing by not showing his next move. Dick
Andres, about six foot two, acquired a pivot shot

he could use from either side-a shot that many
opponents found next to impossible to stop. Bob
Barbrow earned the nickname "Ace" from his
uncanny ability to make long shots from his
guard position. Most opponents found it hard to
guard Feisley and, in the attempt to do so, often
fouled him. lim took advantage of this situation
by making good a large percentage of his foul
shots. After seeing this team in action we believe
future teams will have to go some to compare

Mt. Lebanon's cross country team had another
very successful season last fall, inasmuch as they
won all their meets. They won the W.P.l.A.L.
championship and had there been an all state
meet, their chances for winning it would have
been very good. Last year's squad Won the
state championship, but this year's team was con-
sidered more p o w e r f u l and better balanced.
Georges Township was the first to meet the Blue
Devils and received a l5 to 40 defeat. Most peo-
ple are not familiar with the scoring of cross coun-
try. The lowest score wins and l5 is a perfect
score. The second meet was a quadrangular af-
fair won by the Blue Devils with a score of 20. St.
Clairsville met Mt. Lebanon next, only to be de-
feated by a l5 to 40 score. Aliquippa met the
tracksters at Schenley Park and was defeated by
a score of l7 to 38. A dual meet with Canons-
burg followed, in which Canonsburg was de-
feated 20 to 35. Brentwood played host to the
Mounties next and the usual thing happened-
Mt. Lebanon won l5 to 40. Connellsville came
the closest of any opponent in a dual meet with
a score of 30 to the Mounties' 25. ln the last meet
the Blue Devils won the W.P.l.A.L. championship
with 27 points while the closest runner up, Con-
nellsville, had 72. Leathers and Simmons were
possibly the best cross country men ever at Mt.
Lebanon. The boys shattered four course records,
including two at Brentwood, the Canonsburg
course, and Mt. Lebanon's own course. The first
team consisted of Toler, Adams, Kraemer, Mar-
shall, Murphy, Bhodewalt, and Bray.

GOLFERS, RACQUETEERS SPLIT SEASON
Our golf team, playing a stiff eight game sched-
ule, won four matches, dropping a like number. The
team consisted of Captain McVay, Mechling, Dick
Andres, Bob Andres, Smith, Bicker, Meyer, Schmidt
Beginning the season with a 9-6 win over Snow-
den, they were stopped cold ll-4 by Baldwin. Our
3-732 loss to South Fayette, according to Mr. Saxton,
the team sponsor, was a real heart-breaker with
Mt. Lebanon losing in an extra hole play-off. How-
ever, the team bounced back to beat Brentwood.
Successive defeats by Snowden and Baldwin were
uffered by the team, but by taking revenge on
South Fayette and by beating Brentwood for the
second time they evened up the win and loss col-
imn. The four consistently high golfers were Mc-
Vay who averaged 83, Dick Andres 86, Bob Schmidt
8, and Bob Andres 89. Managerial chores were
Our tennis team held its own on the clay courts,
winning four out of eight hard fought contests. ln
the number one position of the Mounty team was
Bud Knoche, followed by lanky Bob Dickson. The
number three spot was held down by Charles
Knoche, while Bob Andres and Bart Giles completed
the Doak sponsored quintet.
They were able to take Brentwood in their stride
hanging up two 5-O wins. Bridgeville proved to be
as easy, as they garnered another pair of 5-O wins.
Crafton, however, was another story, with Mt. Leb-
anon losing two matches by the scores of 3-2 and
4-l. Crafton went on to win the W.P.l.A.L. champion-
ship, beating Bellevue and New Kensington. Shady
Side hung another pair of defeats around the neck
by the close fought scores of 3-2 and 3-2. l942
marked the beginning of the W.P.l.A.L. tournaments
at State College where Bud Knoche represented Mt.

GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
Mt. Leboites, like Lucy, that is, gained good
times, new friends, and better health as they
spent after-school hours at many and varied
games in the gym and on the playing fields. For
this year the Girls' Athletic Association flourished
as never before, when girls sought, through sports,
to reach the higher standards of physical fitness
our wartime and forthcoming peacetime will de-
Along with this, however, there was plenty of
gaiety and excitement furnished by several novel
events provided by the Cr.A.A. during this past
One of these outstanding days for its members
was the "Patriotic Play Day," when each girl
became a member of a team named for one of
the United Nations and that afternoon played nu-
merous sports to aid in the victory of that nation.
To top off the afternoon there was a pantomime,
"The Human Ford," done by the Council, as well
as delicious refreshments. Another special occa-
sion was the basketball game played between a
team composed of women faculty members and
one made up from the Council.
The G.A.A.'s second Play Day was held in
May. Once more the G.A.A. came through with
a top time.
Tennis, the first sport to be played last fall, was
rained out, but cageball supplanted it very satis-
factorily. Duke, captained by Nancy Nicklas,
came out on top in this tournament. Basketball
continued in popularity. A large number of girls
took part in the race for the top sextet, which
proved to be Margery Graham's team, Lehigh.
Volleyball was next on the G.A.A. program and
the girls who batted the ball vigorously across the
net later played soft ball with a vengeance. Bad-
minton, horseshoes, and tennikoit completed the
A tense moment ensues, as this
G.I-LA.-er shoots. Basketball was
Lucy's favorite sport, and like many
other Mt. Lebanon girls she gave it
everything she had.
Hockey was new to most of the
girls, but they took to it almost im-
mediately. Disregarding cracked
shins, dribbling a reluctant puck
goalward, they soon became veter-
ans of the fields.
"Your game." "Gosh that girl has
a good forehand1" "lean certainly
can place her drives!" Typical re-
marks as the shuttle-cock reigned su-
preme. A perennial favorite in the
"Keep it up and over." Cageball
brought out many an athletic miss.
This sport called for closely co-ordi-
nated team Work, and Mt. Lebo girls
found that they had "what it takes."
GUNNERS DEVELOPED MARKSMANSHIP
BOTTOM: Frost, Gallaher, Davies, O'Connor, Eichenberq, Spoerlein, Tattersall,
TOP: Graham, Peters, Eiler, Colvill, Shellinger, Mr. Swartz Ccoachl.
Keeping pace with the times, the ritle team shoul-
dered their guns as usual this year. Coached by
Mr. Swartz, our team was expected to hold its own
in the season's matches as many ot last year's club
members and a nucleus ot tormer team members
have made the team.
However, there have been some changes made.
Shoulder to shoulder matches are out for the dura-
tion. Blame it on gas rationing. However postal
matches have been substituted. ln these matches
the opposing teams shoot their targets on their home
ranges and then send the scores to the other school
where the results are tabulated and returned. The
excitement ot shoulder to shoulder matches will be
missed, but postal matches will keep interschool
competition alive. The war nearly ended every-
thing by cutting ott the supply ot .22 shells, but in
the nick ot time the government granted enough
ammunition to permit schools to continue shooting.
The formation ot the first string necessitated some
elimination during the first of the year. The ritle
club was organized and anyone was permitted to
join. A trial period Was established, during which
the fundamentals ot prone shooting were taught. At
the end ot the period the uninterested members and
the very bad shooters were dropped. This was
necessary in order to conserve ammunition and to
give the active shooters more opportunities. Then
the squad was organized. The ten "dead eyes" that
made the team were: O'Oonnor, Eiler, Davies, Mer-
shon, Specht, Tattersall, Eichenberg, Frost, Spoer-
The Log went to press at the beginning ot the ritle
team's season. Our prediction, however, is that by
the time you have read this, they will have shot a
successtul season against tough W.P.l.A.L. compe-

"Let's wrestle and box for the rest of the period.
OK. boys, speed it up!"
And so it went, four days out of five. We ran, did
push-ups, boxed, wrestled, rode imaginary bicycles
upside down. For four hours each week we boys
went through exercises-and what for? To groom
fight to protect our homes,
for war. To prepare to
our democratic life. We were glad of this challenge
to American youth.
Bode and tussle.
Something new and memorable in
Mt. L. sports history was the basket-
ball game-and what a game it was
-between the GAA. Council and a
team of women faculty members.
After sundry practice sessions, both
teams felt capable of taking on the
other, while Lanny and the rest of
the male population bemoaned their
exclusion from this novel event. Re-
gardless of numerous postpone-
ments, the contest was finally held.
Then our faculty proved its physical
prowess as, oblivious to minor in-
fractions, they breezed through both
halves with the top score of the l4-l2
Hanover and Smith have a bout.
Although the ianitors have long since torn down
the bleachers and picked up the candy wrappers,
the memory of this year's boxing and wrestling tour-
nament lingers on.
Open to all the school, there were violent battles
in each of the classes, as antagonists displayed
their mettle. Winners of the l943 boxing matches
were McChesney, Seifert, Peters, DelGrande,
Schmidt. Wrestling match winners were: Bowers,
Lucchessi, Orr, DeLonga, O'Connor.

Activities Banquet and Key
The Activities Banquet was definitely a success.
It was hard to believe so many students could take
an important part in activities, from Triple Trio to
cross country. But there they were, from the presi-
dent of Executive Board to the winners of G.A.A.
sports letters, each dressed in his best and reading
his placecard, the special issue of the "Lantern"-
all gaily chatting with friends in anticipation of the
events in progress.
After feasting on the elegant food, we sat back in
our chairs to applaud the people who were pre-
sented with awards. Among these awards were the
activities keys, which represent all-around achieve-
ment in activities, since you must have obtained
ninety points to receive this honor. Quite a few kids
got their keys last lune, too. It was lots of fun watch-
ing everyone we knew walking up to the speakers'
table to get his letter or pin.
Guest speaker was our former principal, Major
L. E. Perry, whom we were happy to welcome home
for the festive occasion. Finally, as everyone
wandered slowly out of the big gym, we heard
someone exclaim, "Boy, I really had a neat time!
I never thought the Activities Banquet could be so

SERVICE WAS FUN FOR G.R.'S-HI-Y
Did you see Santa Claus and his helpers last Christmas?
Maybe you missed Saint Nick, but his helpers, our own Beta
Girl Reserves, were quite busy. Figuring that we high school
kids had outgrown the baby doll and tin soldier stage, the
Betas collected all our old toys to put under the Christmas
trees of under-privileged youngsters.
"Air raid signal yellow," the busy chatter of Civilian de-
fense personnel, the shriek of air raid sirens-this was part of
the life of the Alphas during the year. The swing shift for staff
operators in the Municipal Building control room was from
four to six, the graveyard shift from six to nine. On shifts when
"business" was slack, time was occupied by, "Did you know,
have you heard?" or by feeble attempts towards school books.
Some of the Deltas were alternates for the staff operators
in the control room, but their main activity for the year was a
War Recreation Committee. Meeting with the l-li-Y, they
formed a group of six members to combat gas rationing and
tire shortage by having different activities at school-bridge
for the card sharks, ping pong for the paddle wizards, and the
inevitable dancing for the more romantic types.
These groups would have been at a great loss without
Miss Frobese's sponsorship of the Betas, Miss Groves help to
the Alphas, and Miss Tiel's suggestions for the Deltas.
Let's see! Basketball Thursdays, meetings Mondays, din-
ners and speakers often. That about made up l-li-Y.
President Bill Pritchard, with Beg Schmidt and Lou Caste,
vice-president and secretary, started the year off with a bang.
We had a couple of "fun nights" with dinner and games at
the Dorrnont YMCA. Our semester speakers included Bever-
end Fallon and Mr. Shultz.
We added something new, too. Dave Faloon became l-li-Y
chaplain, replacing the unofficial devotional leader. Cur spring
officers, Ed Peetz, Prank Price, and Charles Esgar, helped make
this l-li-Y year stand for good fellowship.

Remember what a thrill it was to see our band
marching down the football field between halves!
How smoothly they made those intricate formations,
all the while playing such lively tunes! What
seemed so difficult to us was a rather simple matter
for them, for they had been practicing their maneu-
vers many weeks before football season begany
and when the big moment came, each one was well
acquainted with his part.
With the end of football season, our band did not
cease its activity, for it was frequently seen in num-
erous downtown parades. During concert season,
emphasis was placed upon musicianship rather

than on marching. Strains of "Glow-worm", "Aul

pealed forth from the band room during sixth period
These selections soon became familiar to the entir
school and to the community at large, since the
often found a place on the program when the ban
played for P.T.A. or civilian defense meetings.
Throughout the year, drummer Fees spicy storie
added life to band practices and Guinnie Price'
"humor" kept things moving at a lively pace. l
certainly took a patient director in the person of Mr
Miescer to guide the destiny of this musically-mind

Those phrases certainly bring back memories!
Having begged, borrowed, and stolen various mu-
sicians here and there, we considered ourselves a
pretty good group. After practicing like fiends for
Miss Cribbs fAm l kiddin'?!, We made our first pub-
lic appearance. We felt very important, playing
between acts of the Senior Class Play! A few times
we even missed our cues, We were so interested in
watching the stage.
Time marches on! Next came the Christmas Pro-
gram. We were kept busy slipping out of the Way
of A Capella, the play cast, and the stage crew.
Then we had to play most of our numbers in the
dark. CWell, we have to alibi those sour notes
Then we mustn't forget Senior Assembly! lt was
sorta sad to think of all the swell kids that would
be leaving, but we soon forgot that in the pride
of all the outstanding achievements they'd made.
The final event on the calendar was Commence-
ment. lt was the last time the Seniors were together
as one group, and as we sat in the orchestra pit,
we felt a lump in our throats. Another short year
and we'd be joining them. Could you blame us for
feeling a bit sad?

Such tones, harmony, and all around good music
as we've ever hard anywhere came from our own A
Capella chorus. And it didn't happen by accident.
Miss Cribbs had a big job changing the "cracks"
and "squeaks" of the first few rehearsals into the
music we heard at the Christmas program and
Senior Assembly. Constant practice third period
and the fun we had singing under Miss Cribbs' di-
rection helped to make a fine chorus.
ln the way of smaller groups, we were well sup-
plied by the Triple Trio and the Boys' Ouartet. How
can we ever forget the girls' lilting "White Christ-
mas" and the boys' rollicking "Old Man Noah!"
These choristers really proved the truth of the old
adage "practice makes perfect"--and had such a
grand time doing it.

LANTERN KEPT "OUR BOYS"
AND US IN THE KNOW
Despite the paper shortage, the loss of
crack photographer lack Marshall to the
Bugle Call and of editors Lois Crawford
and Walter Brand at mid-semester, the
"Lantern" still shone brightly.
This year Lanternites placed the accent
on bigger and better recognition of Mt.
Brown, Brand, Chotner, Miss
McLaughlin, Perkins, Bode,
Lebo alumni in the service. The War
Service Committee did a swell job of
keeping tab of Mt. Lebanonites in the
service, and also took over mailing of
"Lanterns" to servicemen subscribers. Our
Service Flag was originated and designed
solely by Miss McLaughlin. War stamp
sales were promoted by timely editorials,
cartoons, and pictures, and our paper
published several complete lists of grads
in the service.
Aside from all this, life rolled on smooth-
ly in 312 - except when the deadline
reared its ugly head. Under the leader-
ship of the elusive Bode and old timers
Crawford and Brand, assignments were
given with zeal - but weren't returned
with quite as much energy. Then Ianu-
ary-and Lois Crawford with her "Odds
'n Ends" departed for parts unknown,
while Bill Perkins turned in his printer's
ink for a frat pin.
However, "Bil-ly" an d new editors
Marion Korb and Oliver Brown soon "had
the situation well in hand." Don Brown
began the editing of "Sideline Sayings."
Snappy fe a t u r e s and news stories
"poured" in regularly from various sourc-
es. lrene Chotner took over loan Daker's
old paper route, while lean Hathaway be-
came official money changer.
All agree that the only disappointment
of the season was Ioe, the new printer,
who isn't half the character that the per-
verse "Dutch" was.

"MR. AND MRS. NORTH"
"Wh.ere's my mail bag?" "ls that my cue?"
"Miss Stoner, now what do I do?" "Has anybody
seen the cast?"
lt all started when Miss Stoner announced the
lune class play would be "Mr. and Mrs. North."
Everyone frantically read try-out lines, attended try-
outs, tound out in 308 Who the cast was, s-i-g-h-e-d-
:hen patted everyone else on the back.
Rehearsals began by pushing chairs, tables, desks
I-anything-around tor props. Then there were
Suzy Carrell's "Witty remarks," Roger O'Connor's
hair, and Kitty Witz's screams. Vic Minnotte ac-
quired a quick accent While Lynn Pringle developed
:hat "sophisticated air." lack Miller became a hard-
boiled detective in no time, and Ed McAninch be-
came-just a detective.
At rehearsals Cooper the Cop, Chuck Adams,
stood around with his mace. The rest of us just
stood around-some holding brushes, some cam-
eras, some dead bodies. Anyone who wasn't dead
or in the closet at the end ot the play lost all pres-
Lots ot credit tor the success ot "Mr. and Mrs.
North" goes to Miss Katheran Stoner, who did a
bang-up job ot directing the "whodunit" comedy.
Some more of the same credit is due the unheralded,
but very important committees and Workers behind
the scenes. Make-up, properties, lighting-all these
and more were done by students. A hand also is
here tor Mrs. Geraldine Morgan who supervised the
committees. And then-but Whoa-that's my cue-

WE WORKED ON THE HOME FRONT
A First Aid Lesson in Splinting
Learning not to tie "granny" knots and recov-
erinq from the effects of artificial respiration were
favorite occupations of the 275 students who took
First Aid this year. A ten-hour course was taken
by all messengers, and a few brave souls took
the twenty hours required for a Red Cross certifi-
lt was not always easy to find the necessary
time for these classes, but eventually the course
was completed and the final test taken. Those
who participated felt they had gained something
really worth while. They may not be quite ready
for front line duty, but they have learned some
things that will, doubtless, prove very valuable
to them in the future.
Miss McLaughlin cmd Her Service Flag
Congratulations, s e n i o r highersl Time and
again your efforts were exerted in one way or an-
other for the war effort. Most outstanding among
these was the time and effort you spent with the
rationing program. Mrs. Morgan, head of this
phase of war work, more than appreciated this
willing and cooperative spirit you displayed. The
first rationing period found 325 students eager tf
help. During gasoline rationing only 25 studen
were needed, but in February l75 aided with i
point rationing of canned goods. Acting as l
tesses, ushers, office clerks, or telephonists,
500 students helped-a total to be proud of
Forty-eight stars representing our nation, a key-
stone representing our state, a cedar represent-
ing Mt. Lebanon, and a number representing our
brothers and friends who had joined the Armed
Forces. This was the Service Flag, originated and
designed by Miss Florence McLaughlin.
The numbers on the red, white, and blue trib-
ute were made by Miss Timko and were changed
to keep pace with our swelling service roll. Credit
for keeping the flag up to date goes to the Armed
Forces Committee, which was responsible for this
roll. Faculty, alumni, and students-all our fight-
ing men of whom we were mighty proud.
Air Raid Drill
Woo-o-o-ol The eerie wail
of the siren announced air
raid drill and do not think
that the half-dozen drills we
had were spent in an un-
earthly silence accompanied

I 'fill behoove all student
messengers to walk the
"straight and narrow" from
now on, for their fingerprints
are on file. These were taken
by two of our policemen as
part of the requirements for
messenger service. Such
subjects as high explosives,
incendiaries, gas defense,
and map study were taught.
With this background of
training, members feel them-
selves much better equipped
to meet the emergencies of
an air raid, if one should
come to Pittsburgh.

improved and passed upon by the rest
of the staff in the fall.

The sales campaign was a big affair..
Remember how the prospective salesmen
besieged you every morning, and how
the public address announcer repeated
every evening, "And now we have a skit
for the Log"? And don't forget how you
waited until the last day to buy yours.
The Weeks Senior pictures were being
taken and delivered were memorable
ones. First came a flourishing of combs,
lipsticks, suit-coats, and neckties when
Mr. Rosser arrived: next, the unfinished
proofs began floating through the hallsi
accompanied by such comments as, "Oh!l
how neat! or, "Simply awful! l'm goingi
to have retakes", and, "l like this one
best"g last of all the finished photographs
arrived and were e X c h a n g e d among
friends with bits of loving phrases and
best Wishes written upon them.
lt's hard to say good-bye to dear old
Mil.. Here we've seen some of the best
football and basketball games and track
meets we'll ever witness. Lucy and l sup-
pose all schools are the same as far as
studies and general principles are con-
cerned, but there's something about the
spirit of Mt.L. that's different. We've tried
to capture it for you in this-our diary.
l942-43 has been a memorable year. As
it draws to a close we wish you God-
speed and hope you will cherish this Log
as much as you will the memories of
events here recorded.
See ya' in the Great Wide World!
