New Kensington High School
New Kensington' -- Sm Pennsylvania
Graduating classes at Ken H1 have long tell
the need for some means whereby they could leave
a record of their activities during their life at Ken
Hi. Previously, the thought of publishing such
records in a class annual was an abstraction of
which to speak hopefully but not a reality to be
Keeping this tact in mind, we, the Class ol'
1934, determined in the publication of this volume
to serve a double purposeg first, to leave a desirable
memorial of our classg and secondly, to provc that
an annual at Ken Hi could be published. lf we
have accomplished this twoffold task, we feel that
we have leftafitting legacy to the classes that folf
The Senior Class of 1934 wishes to express its
gratitude to those who have contributed to th:
advertising in our publication, and asks that everyf
one will show his appreciation by promoting the
welfare of the people who have so willingly aided
We wish especially to tender our appreciation
to Miss Ada Fiscus for willingly rendering aid
while acting as editorial sponsorg to Mr. Russell A.
Artman, under whose supervision the financial
success of the book was assuredg to Miss Martha
Russell who aided in the subscription campaign
through publicity in the Kentoniang to Miss Marie
Walker and Miss jane Taylor for managing the
candy sales which aided the hookg to Miss Sarah
Barranco for her assistance in typing: to -all of the
class and club sponsors for providing the records
of activities and memberships of their groups, and
to Mr. Louis Wise, representative of jahn and
Ollier, the engravers, who was always on hand
to render service of any kind.
ln sincere appreciation for one whose
:iid came willingly at all times, whose modes'
ty effected such ii friendly spirit between
teacher and pupil, and who through his
instruction instilled in us a desire for
truth, we, the Class of 1934, dedicate this
hook to our esteemed friend,
MR. RUSSELL A. ARTMAN
HISTORY OF THE YEAR BOOK
When the seniors of 1934 assembled in school
last fall, they heard rumors that their class would
attempt to puhlish a year hook.
This end, they realized, was not to he accom'
plished wixhout any difficulties. The most out'
standing one heing the lack of funds, hut the
determined class worked hard with the ideal of .1
siuccessful hook as its goal. Among the many
activities which financially aided them were the
ulollyfpop week" during which the girls sold lolly'
popsg tea and evening dancesg johnson the great
magician who imparted his tricks of magicg and
candy selling hy girls of the entire high school.
Through these various means sufficient money was
earned to edit the hook.
"Ta1eoken'l, which was suggested hy Beatrice
Shukis and Harry West was chosen from ninety-f
five names and is the annual's title. It is a conf
traction of the words "tale of Ken'Hi" and is prof
nounced "Tailfefofken". A prize to the student
who entered the hest name added much interest
to the contest.
The seniors of 1934 are proud that they sucf
cessfully published the first year hook of Ken-Hi
since the class of 1913.
The staff for 1934 was appointed 'by Class President
Anthony Pallone. lt includes:

variety of interesting programs, which included
dramatization of French plays, reviews of French
authors, histories. and poems.
Alnumber of songs have been composed by

sung to the tune of Auld Lang Syne.
Another feature of the club is the highly
educational correspondence carried on with stu'
dents in France and Belgium. The letters which
have been exchanged have been humorous and

in which it was a contestant. After the final eliminations, Ken Hi's team received
third place in the league.
Verona, a nonfleaguc rival, was the victim of a brilliant Ken Hi attack with
a score of 33 to 0 in the s:ason's opener at the Fourth Avenue Stadium.
The subsequent week the "Glockmen,' faced Norwin, their first conference
rival, on the local gridiron, and had scarcely any difficulty in defeating their oppon'

Continuing their victorious lead, Ken Hi journeyed to Wilkinsburg and won
their second conference victory by defeating them by the score of 20 to 0.
Braddock's team traveled to Ken Hi the following week to open their initial
football game with the local school. "The Flying Dutchmenn once more reached
the peak of victory by the repeating of the score 20 to 0.

13 to 6 victory, which was third consecutive winning decision.
The "Hilltoppers" met Tarentum, our old traditional rival, at Tarentum the

At the close of the 1933 basketball campaign, many fans ex'
pressed their feelings of doubt as to whether Ken Hi could again
be the Section I winner for the fifth consecutive year. However,
after several prefseason contests, all uncertainty had been removed
and these same fans were enthusiastically predicting a second
W. P. I. A. L. crown for the Kenites, as they had been impressive
in their victories over Aliquippa, New Castle, and Western Penn,
sylvania School for the Deaf. Only two defeats were suffered
during the preliminary exhibitions, at the hands of Kiski and New
The Red and Black had little trouble in winning the Section

A slow first half start by Ken Hi gave the ultimate state
champs an unsurmountable lead in the first half of the game and
the City Leaguers were able to eliminate the Kenites 39 to 26,
One of the most successful basketball seasons in the history
of Ken Hi was enjoyed by the 1934 Red and Black combination.
This year gave Ken Hi its fifth consecutive Section I toga. It also
marked the third instance when only the ultimate state champions
stopped the Glockmen.
As a tribute to the team and the coach who accomplished so
much in bringing honors to New Kensington and the school, the
business men of the community feted them in a rousing testimon-
ial, followed by an elaborate banquet at the Hillcrest Country Club.
This is the third

Ten men were selected by Coach Dunn for
the regular squadg then eight boys were chosen
from the eighth grade to make a foundation for
next years team. Later seven hoys were chosen
from the seventh grade.
These hoys were given a set of practice
drills for the development of catching, passing,
shooting, and poise. 5
Scrimmages were next in ordcr so that the
hoys might learn the tactics of organized otlensiv:
and defensive play.
Every other boy in the school has played
a schedule of not less than five nor more than

ln September. nineteen hundred thirtyfone, two steamers, the Parnassus

freshman on board. Before they had gone far out to sea the 'iEinpressl' lresh'
man had a skate, the iirst activity'on board their steamer. To celebrate the
Irish holiday, St, Patriek's Day, these same hearty sailors sponsored their lirsl
dance. Not to be outdone, the freshmen on board the lfloyu gave a very
successful party just before they reaehed their home port.
The next year the two freshman groups combined and sct sail as sopiif
olnores on the Ken'Hi "Enipress". It took the skippers lirom the llarnassu-

Freshman Class History
The freshman school year has ended and many ol the pupils ar,

their careers for later life.
The present freshman class hegan its history in New Kensington lun'
ior High School in the lall of the year 1931. At that time there were ahout
225 or more students on the lresh'na:1 rilll.
During the seventh year, th: p Csent irehman class he'd many elierf
:shed memories, Among those most easily reeolleeted are the activities of the
Mu i: Cluhs sponsored hy Miss Cost. Their highest homo: was rc rg ze
quested to sing hefore an asseinhly and present a short play. In 1934 they
aggin had the same prlvilege.
The activities of the art classes were sponsored hy Mrs. M Carr.
Their greatest achievements were in displaying their work hefore an assemhly.
They were also given the honor to eotnpete in a poster sliow ltr Po' ny Dah
This year the freshman class had their geatest attendance on record, in the
history of the school,
In 1933 they hegan as freshmen, a eognomen very suitable for them:
for all of the upperclassmen 'ooked down upon them as h'greenies" or "fresh-
ies." Class elections were held and olfieers selected, as the new vilage was
very eager to elect their governing hody,
On that glorious night of Dceemher 8, 1933 they held their Hrst
activity, a skate, which proved an astounding success. The proceeds enabled
them to hegin their hrst hawlt a3'ount as a Class.

Parnassus .lunior High
The Parnassus junior High School Hrst came inta
being in the fall of 1931, following the consolidation of
the boroughs of New Kensington and Parnassus, as a
full fledged junior high schoof with a d.stinct organization.
Mr. O. W, johnson was chosen to head this new
setfup, and his Held of activities has since been broadened
until he is now directing the activities of all the junior
high students in the city.
During its three years of functioning as a junior
high school, Parnassus has graduated 615 students into
the senior high school: many of these students are out'
standing in school life, and bid fair to become credits
to their community. The school spirit of the aggregation
has been exceptionally fine, and the white brick building
on Main Street is pleasantly remembered by those who
have passed through its portals.
Seventeen full time and four part time teachers
are employed ,and the walls resound with the busy hum
of industry from this happy, contented group of teachers
Parnassus junior High has been outstanding in
athletics. During the three years of her existence she has
produced six championship teams-'three in basketball,
and three in football. ln that time only one game of bas'
ketball was lost, the football teams did not lose a game,
but tied one.
Although the venture to maintain a separate jun-
ior high school was new to this community, it has been
an unqualified success as its many students will attest.

Trade School Class History
On the lifth day of September 930, the survivors of those who took
Mr. MQller's entrance examination eagerly assembled as a freshman class in
the New Kensington Vocational School, This department was then located
on the ground floor of the Ridge Avenue High School,
Our freshman year passed quickly because we were kept busy in eithf
er the machine or the patternshop getting a start in our respective trades,
Many bruised or cut fingers were the results of our clumsy efforts in attempt-
ing perfection, and through the teachings of Mr. Anderson ,Mr. Remy, and
Mr. Warner, we began to feel that some day we might become tradesmen
In addition to our general store of knowledge, we studied drafting under
the instruction of Mr. Miller and Mr. Marsh.
During our second year Mr. Marsh was replaced by Mr. Black. One
notable event that occured this year was the moving of the vocational school
from the Ridge Avenue building to the present commodi-us location in th-e
old high school building on Fourth Avenue. All the moving and reconstrucf
tion of the machines and equipment was done by the students of the voca'
Our third and final year was spent entirely in our new location. Since
our separation from the high school proper, the School has been represented
in athletics by a varsity basket ball team. Other activities have consisted of
a school skate, literary programs, and participation in a harmonica band.
Although our number has dwindled down to about on-efhalf of what
it was at first, we feel that our number of thirty three members constitutes
a residue of tried and true timber. It is with regret that we bid farewell
to our school and faculty.

Free to go, the world is yours
To meet and face it as you will,

So onward, as your spirits thrill.
Go build your mansions large or small
Go test your might against the foe,
Go sweat and slave within the mill,
Or else gon on-the more to know.
Enkindled in your body, there is life,
Upon you rests the burden of success.
You, and you alone, can reach your goal
By aiming high-yes4nothin-g less.
Enjoin your talents all around,
Go seek that which you love the best,
Go search until at last you've found
The making or the breaking of the test.
A stately mansion stands upon the hill,
A cottage lies deep in the vale,
The world is waiting for your call,
If you will never, ever flinch or fail.

Before the heartbreaks and the terars.

Senior Class History
Four years ago our country, was threatened by Ignorance.
the land of our natural enemies. The president in 1930 organized
an army of almost two hundred loyal followers. The army was for
the most part, inexperienced, but, under the constant drilling of
the different officers, we increased our knowledge and had some
hard battles with the enemy army of Ignorance. Our soldiers, after
these constant skirmishes, needed diversion, which was furnished
at the annual freshman party. Graduation, the capital city of Ig-
norance, was the center at which our forces were directed in the
effort to conquer our enemy. After nine months of fighting, both
countries called a truce.
In the fall of 1931, our army was again mustered. But this
year its size was increased by the consolidation of New Kensing-
ton and Parnassus, as a result a body of over one hundred stalwart
fighters marched to our aid. We sec-ured the financial aid necessary
in the carrying on of this campaign by taxing everyone who attend-
ed the Sophomore Hop. The army by this time was better trained
and was making longer and steadier drives toward Graduation. As
both countries seemed to need a rest, a halt was soon called to the
After three months of peace, the war again sprang up in
the fall of 1932. Revenue for paying the cost of the war was raised
by several dances and a skate. The army by this time had gained
a reputation for perseverance and hard fighting, which they well
deserved since their goal was now mvuch closer. In the spring, the
army of 934' declared a holiday and royally entertained their pref
decessors of "SPV at the annual juniorfSenior Prom. With this
event, our fighting was temporarily at an end.
When we commenced school in the fall, we had Graduation
nearly in sight. We now needed one great drive to get us there.
This year we took a great step toward recognition by publishing
the first year book of this school. Now everyone put on the su'
preme effort to overcome the last barrier to our occupation of the
coveted city, Graduation. These were Lhe 'Finals' over which every'
one but a few stragglers climbed. After all our comrades had been
honored at the juniorfSenior Prom, we received our diplomas. As far
as we are concerned, Ignorance no longer exists. We all must now
strive to have it deserve the name which we have given it. That
name is 'Success'!

GOODBYE KEN HI
TunefOut of the Dusk to 'You
Here we at last depart,
Each to his path aloneg
We bid goodbye to old Ken Hi
And pleasures we all have known.
Longing our worth to prove,
Daring our best to dog
Let's do our part with all our heart
Making our dreams come true.
Though now we must depart,
May the old dreams remaing
May coming years be free from tears
And may we meet once again.
Parting brings us mvuch pain,
Hoping in parts repaysg
For old Ken Hi let's live or die
And prove her worth always.
