Wlien an organization wishes any of its funds Withdrawn, the sponsor requisitions a check. Records are kept so that an accurate and up-tofdate balance may be obtained at any time, The records are kept entirely by the students from the junior commercial classes, chosen because of their ability. The student bankers are Frances Silagyi, Helen Howard, Ellis Rosenberger, William Heinritz, Kathryn johnson, Virginia Trees, Dorothy Park, Amelia Piemme, and Emma Spakowski. The Tea Dance Orchestra is so called because its main purpose is to plly for the afternoon tea dances held by the various organizations of the school. The first orchestra of this type was organized during the l93l-32 school term by Edmund Manganelli. During the past two years, the Board of Activities has held the first tea dance of the year and with the proceeds has furnished the music for the orches tra. This year the orchestra was organized by Victor De Santo. The rhythm section consisted of Yingst and Davisong the saxophones were manned by Renni Myers, Mazzotta and Coheng the brasses were handled by Lodowski, Bulger, Guida and Poole. fPuge 82j Student Savings Bank OFFICFRS President ........

Any junior or senior girl who has excelled in gymnasium classes is eligible for membership. Besides sponsoring girls' basketball and volleyball tournaments, the club has enjoyed various social activities. A tea dance, a semifprivate dance, and the cus- tomary Play Day were sponsored by the girls. Of all organizations there is none that has rendered more service to the school than the band. During the last year it has evoked much favorable comment from athletic fans and musicians alike. This has been due to the efforts of Mr. Gregory under whose direction the band has been molded into an accomplished musical unit. With rare enthusiasm it has mastered and added to its repertoire a dozen well known marches. Its activities have included playing for part of the assemblies and for all athletic events. fPage Slj I-lome Economics Club OFFICERS President ........ Anna Burchick Secretary and Truaswrer ....... Ferneligger Spo11so'fx. .Miss Bryant, Miss Lyon Orchestra Less active than some clubs but none the less important is the Home Economics Club. lts membership includes all girls of the department who wish to join. Organized entirely for social purposes, the club meets once a month. At these meetings, the girls sing, dance, present readings and plays for their own entertain- ment and serve refreshments. Toward the end of the year it is customary to take a trip to Pittsburgh to visit places of interest. The annual fashion show is the occasion for exhibiting dresses made during the year. Ken Hi may well be proud of its orchestra this year for it has developed into an organization far above high school standards. The orchestra consisting of thirty- two members has played a wide range of instruments, such as the violin, cello, bass viol, clarinet, cornet, trombone, bassoon, oboe, flute, French horn, and drums. Under the fine leadership of Mr. Gregory, it has accomplished splendid work in playing at assemblies, at the Thespian and Class Plays, and at Baccalaureate Service, Class Night and Commencement. flange Xllj JUNIOR SCHOOL PATROL 'iSave the life of a child and you contribute to the manhood of America." These words can well be said of the boys who form the junior School Patrol. It is an organization of civic-minded students whose purpose is to make school chil- dren safety conscious. The patrol was organized in 1932 through the co-operation of the New Ken- sington Police and the student body. Under the able leadership of Officer Will- iam B. Fowler, the patrol has won the good will of all those about them. Each member wears a Sam Brown canvas belt and a nickel-plated badge. They guard their corners four times daily. Whether the days bring sunshine or rain, fog or snow, these public spirited boys are in their places. Reward for meritorious service is provided by their leader and by the local theater managers. The junior School Patrol oath is: "I hereby promise that I will fulfill the du- ties of my office as laid down by officers of patrols and in such a manner as to a- void accidental injury to myself or others. I furthermore promise that I will at no time attempt to operate from a position in the roadway or assume any authority over automobile traffic which I under- stand is the function of the Police Department and the responsibility of the driver. In the interest of safety I will co-operate with my parents, the principal of my school, the Junior Safety Council, city authorities, and the general publicfl fPage 79f COMMERCIAL CLUB OFFICERS The Commercial Club has boasted a membership of approximately one hun- dred thirty during the past year. Since only juniors and seniors have been eligi- ble to membership, the club has been assured a group interested in commercial work. Regular meetings have been held the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. The club has endeavored to fuliill a two-fold purpose: to keep in touch with modern business methods and to furnish enjoyable social occasions. At one of the meetings, Mr. W. C. Murphy gave a demonstration of the mimeograph show- ing how even the daily comics can be duplicated. The club has earned the money to add some other office appliances to the Munroe calculator purchased last year for use in office practice classes. Plays, pantomimes, and sketches of life in the office have been presented to show how to get the job or to please the boss. Helen Gowaty, winner of the club's typing contest, set a record of ninety-nine and four tenths percent accuracy. Maxine Prager proved to be the speediest typ- ist with a rate of sixty-one words a minute. This was the first contest of the kind held for some time and was received enthusiastically. Besides these activities there have been dancesg a Christmas party, which Santa Claus attended with surprise packages for allg an amateur hourg and to top them all a silent movie of the old days "The Phantom of The Opera" with the phan- tom there in the flesh! Everyone hopes to carry out of school many practical things learned here and to try "To do Bigger and Better Things." fpclgl' President ....... Frank Schwelss Vice President ......

Miss Fiscus The Dramatic Club has, through a charter obtained, become Troupe 14 of the National Thespian Dramatic Honor Society for High Schools. Cnly eleven other schools in Pennsylvania have been able to meet the requirements for membership. The aim of this society is fivefold: to develop a spirit of active and intelligent interest in dramatics among high school boys and girlsg to assist directors and students in the selection and presentation of high school plays that are worthwhile and to facilitate many of the problems connected with rehearsals and general stage workg to provide a suitable reward for excellence attained in high school drama- ticsg to acquaint directors and students with the general progress made in drama- tics among other high schools and to encourage the exchange of ideas among the various members ofthe societyg and to secure for the benefit of the members re- duced royalty rates on the best plays available for high school purposes. Since it has become a national organization, the club has endeavored to make its meetings both profitable and enjoyable. At every business meeting there has been a speaker to address the members on some subject from the great field of drama. At each social meeting several one-act plays or original skits have been presented. The outstanding achievement of the year was the presentation of a three-act comedy, "Here Comes Charlie." lt met with such instant approval when pref sented in New Kensington that the cast was invited by Duflbs Business College to repeat the play for their student body. Wage 77 f LE CERCLE FRANCAIS OFFICERS President ....... William Shearer Vice President. . .Frank Fessalano Treasurer .......... Louise Ritter Secretary ......... Virginia Ziola Sponsor .... .... M iss Patterson lt was back in 1929 under the able guidance of Miss Patterson that "Le Cercle Francais" was organized. The French Club has aimed to promote a better knowledge of the language, people, and customs of France. These objectives were attained in the past year by speeches, songs, and plays which were presented at the meetings which were held the first Thursday of each month. Also a large number of students have be- gun correspondence with students in France. In this way much is being learned about the schools, homes, and amusements of the French people. The social festivities were inaugurated by the tea dance for which "Le Cercle Francais" may well be remembered. This affair was characterized by the extensive sale of good homemade candy which helped to make the dance a success. The annual picnic in May, held at Memorial Park, wound up the social calendar for the year. The four officers ofthe club were elected by members to pilot the club through the school year. This they have done skillfully and arduously. No small number of students are proud to wear the French club pin which had its origin this year at Ken Hi since there have been sixty-two students enrolled. That the year has been a success for uLe Cercle Francaisl' no one can contra- dictg the reason can be expressed in the one Word, Co-operation. fPuge 761 Pruztlcnt ........... Fred Keller Vice President. . .Edmund Geiger Treasurer ....... Donald Sprowls Secretary ...... Frank Schweiss Sponsor . , . ..... Mr. l-lollibaugh CONCILIUM SCIENTIAE OFFICERS The Concilium Scientiae, Council of Science, now in its second year has been endeavoring to arouse a co-operative spirit among the science students of Ken l-li for the common benefit of all. ln the fall of 1935 leadership of the council changed hands. Mr. Walter, ef- ficient leader since the founding, was replaced by an equally competent sponsor, Mr. I-lollibaugh, instructor in biology and general science. Candidates desiring membership have been invited to submit their applications, to the president. Upon receipt of any such applications, the council has voted to determine whether or not the candidate should be admitted. Council activities have included instruction in some of the sciences, oral re- ports by members, and nature hikes. This instruction, outside the classroom, has permitted the members to engage in a more detailed study of some particular subject. Mr. l-lollibaugh's instruction was supplemented by the verbal reports given by members who were especially interested in the subject being studied. The nature hikes, extensive in warm weather, have provided some actual geologi- cal and biological experiences for our future geologists and biologists. Frogs and other small amphibians have been captured. Fossils and various stone formations have been collected and identified. Such collections and other specimens have been taken back to the meeting room or laboratory for a more thorough study or analysis. The able guidance of the faculty and the interest of the students in council meetings have given promise that the organization will become one of Ken l-li's outstanding clubs. fPagc 751 STAMP CLUB OFFICERS President ....... William Walley' Vice President .... Billy Robertson Secretary ........... Ada Fulton Treasurer ........ Edgar Morgan Sponsor . . ..... Mr. Gantz Ever meeting the new and varied interests of the student body, Ken Hi has off ficially recognized the rapidly growing hobby of stamp collecting by organizing the Stamp Club under the capable leadership of its sponsor, Mr. Gantz. The club was conducted more as an experiment during the latter months of the preceding school year. The programs consisted mainly of stamp stories, stamp exchanges, and informal exhibits of stamps and covers at the social meetings by experienced philatelists as guest speakers. This year the club has sought to accomplish its aim as stated in the constitution: "to increase our knowledge of stamp collecting and to develop a more general in- terest in stamp collecting throughout the school." The club has certainly done this by the numerous talks given on the technical details of stamp collecting, the competitive tests presented, and the arranging of stamp exhibits, posters, and bul- letins in the beautiful exhibition case in the library. The club also cofoperated with the president in completing a stamp map of North America. They felt like Byron that since "a thing of beauty is a joy forever" the maps should be continued every year as a series of educational and worth-while projects. The addition of the weekly "Philatelic Gossipf' "Scott's Monthly journal," and a 1935 edition of 'iScott's Catalogue" to the stamp literature of the library has greatly aided the club members by furnishing them with the latest news of their hobby. fPugc' 741 TRI-I-II-Y OFFICERS FIRST Sumizsriait Prexidcnt .......

This club was called the Tri-Hi-Y. Since its inf ception the club has endeavored to maintain the high standards framed by the charter members. Ken Hi girls have considered it a great honor to be chosen inf to its membership. All students of Ken Hi, as well as many residents of New Kensington, are fa- miliar with the splendid work that the TrifHi-Y girls have carried out for the bene- fit of the school and community. At Christmas time it has been their custom to solicit aid from the student body in order to pack a number of baskets of food to be distributed to the needy folk of New Kensington. Each year they have had a number of social activitiesg the first one was a semi' private dance which came in the early fall. A tea dance was held to help earn the necessary money needed for the Christmas baskets. Une of the most unique and delightful affairs was the Faculty Tea when the members proved themselves efiicient hostesses. Then each spring the club has held a Mother and Daughter Banquet at which time the mothers have been the guests. Besides planning and carrying out these activities, the club has endeavored to suggest campaigns that would create more school enthusiasm. fPuge 731 HI-Y OFFICERS Senior President. .Charles Shetler lunior President. .Donald jacohus Sophomore President ......... .................Ralphl.acey Sponsors .......... Mr. Sisley, Mr. Hollibaugh, Mr. Stoner The HifY, this last year, under the directorship of Mr. George D. Wheeler and sponsored by three faculty members, was principally a character building club, as the purpose implies. Through the courtesy of the Kiwanis Club, the HifY was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to hear such men as Professor Lady of Slippery Rock, Dr. Hoyt of Grove City, Dr. Galbraith of Westminster and Father Tasch of Pittsburgh. These men presented problems which are bound to face all the youth of today when they step into the world about them. These problems included war, poli- tics, and liquor control, all of which are vitally important as well as interesting. The club was not with out social activities. The calendar included both a Father and Son, and a Mother and Son Banquet. Their girls were entertained one evening especially set aside for them and a semi-private dance was also held. The HifY was represented at the Hi-Y Camp on Lake Erie in August and at the Older Boys' Conference at Punxsutawney in December. ln both instances, programs and activities were discussed and exchanged in order that the short com- ings of one club might be remedied by something that had been used to a good advantage in another club. A new method of membership was also inaugurated whereby membership was thrown open to all high school boys. In this manner, the Hi-Y was able to reach many more boys, the number being between seventy-five and one hundred. fPage 721 NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY OFFICERS Fiasr Siimissnia President .........

Miss Hawk The National Honor Society was first organized by Dr. Edward Rynearson at the Fifth Avenue High School in Pittsburgh fourteen years ago. Since then there have been more than five hundred charters issued to schools ranging from Maine to Hawaii. New Kensington High School was granted its charter January 21, 1925. Each year the Faculty Council of the high school chooses a maximum of fifteen per cent of the senior class and five per cent of the junior class as those likely to succeed our great Americans. The judging is based on the qualifications of scholar' ship, service, leadership, and character. These qualifications are interpreted as follows: scholarship is the high standing in one's respective classesg service is the willingness to render cheerfully and enthu- siastically help to the school whenever called upon to do sog leadership is to demonstrate a degree of initiative in class-room activities, which leads to higher scholarship for all, as well as contributing ideas which may be useful in the civic life of the schoolg character is the manner in which a student meets his obligations to his school, by the spirit he puts into his class work and by the influence he has on his school associates. The National Honor Society's activities aim to increase the progressiveness of the schoolg therefore there are few which concern the welfare of the society itself. lt encourages citizenship in the school by presenting awards to the best senior boy and senior girl citizen. fwge 711 BOARD OF ACTIVITIES OFFICERS Ken Hi has been fortunate in having a Board of Activities whose duty it has been to keep the social affairs of the school in smooth running order. At the beginning of the year the board acquired two new members from the sophomore class, and it didn't take these new members long to realize the diversity in the scope of the board's work. lt acted as an arbitrator between classes and clubs, it considered applicants for any official position in the high school teamsg and to the best of its ability, it coped with the numerous little details that bobbed up. The board has been able to help some of the students to pay their activities subscriptions by its yearly candy sale. Also, with the permission of the organiza- tion, a novel entertainment was put on in the form of a musical comedy which was sponsored by the junior class. The board has helped Victor De Santo's or- chestra by sponsoring the first tea dance of the year, the proceeds of which were used to purchase music for that organization. The outstanding social event was the banquet, an annual affair in which representatives of all the clubs were brought together. The Board of Activities has included the following representatives: Mr. Chap- man, Mr. Weaver, Miss Watson and Mr. Vorlage of the faculty: joy Edelson and Sammy Sampson of the Class of 19365 Edith Roberts and William Alex of the Class of 19375 and Helen Murray and Richard Freeman of the Class of 1938. fPuge 70 j President ...........

Since 1920 the 'iKentonian" has been the herald and recorder of the student activities at Ken Hi. lt has been not only of service to the student body, but also of value in giving its editors and reporters practical experience as evidenced by the number of former Kentonian workers now engaged in active newspaper work. Primarily a student publication, the "Kentonian" has given its staff members an excellent outlet for self-expression. Consequently, the fifteenth volume of the "Kentonian" has been no exception in regard to new ideas. This year the paper has won wide acclaim through its series of "Guest Articles," which were written for the "Kentonian" by well-known leaders in business, educa- tion, politics, industry, and the sciences. Outstanding among these were Henry Horner, Governor of lllinoisg j. Edgar Hoover, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Roy A. Hunt, President of the Aluminum Company of America, State Senator Benjamin H. Thompson, Edward R. Weidlein, Director of the Mellon Institute of Industrial Research, and Harold L. lckes, Secretary of the Interior. Two additional features inaugurated by the staff of 193586 were "The Man in the Hall" and the "Roses and Thistles" columns. As a special Christmas attraction, the HKentonian" was printed in two colors, with an exclusive Christmas story by Betsey Barton, daughter of Bruce Barton. The Kentonian stag, at the end of a most successful year, may feel justly proud that it has set a precedent which future journalism classes will do well to follow. 1Pugc 691 THE TALEOKEN EDITORIAL STAFF Editor-in-Chief ...............

BOOK III Urganizcztion Vocational School Webster defines a vocational school as one in which students are prepared for the technical arts and crafts. The boys attending our vocational department have their choice of one ofthe following trades: drafting, pattern making, and machine shop practice. Along with their trades they are taught such related subjects as shop mathematics, shop theory, science, and geometry. English, civics, and economics are the classical subjects included in the course. The instructors are all men who have had years of practical experience. Following the guidance of our capable instruc- tors, the student has every opportunity to learn more in less time than if trained in some shop or factory. During the three year course, the instructors attempt to impress upon the minds ofthe pupils the importance of safety in the shop and elsewhere. The boys of trade school also get much practical experience, such as doing repair work, making cabinets, planning new fire alarm systems, designing, together with many other projects for the school and commercial trade. The graduating class of this year is the first class to have started the regular course in the new building. It is also the largest class that has graduated since the Vocational School was founded. Activities other than the regular course are: a Hi-Y Club, sponsored by Mr. Anderson, two basketball teams-a freshmen team and a varsity team sponsored and coached by Mr. Black, and a group interested in aviation organized as the "Silver Hawks Flight" of the "Junior Birdmen Club," sponsored by Mr. Warner. Vocational education has gone far toward increasing the supply of skilled and semi-skilled labor. It enables the children of the laboring class of today to become skilled craftsman.

M iss Klingensmith, Mr. Ganr: We, the Class of 1939, began our career in New Kensington High Schoolin the fall of 1933. That year, as seventh graders, we found many new rules to follow. The next year we tried our hardest to become the ladies and gentlemen we were expected to be. We were pleased at the end of the year to see Mary jane Richards and Sammy Caruso receive the American Legion Awards. But it was in our freshman year that we became socially prominent. There was the skate where hoys and girls together glided along, The biggest event, however, was the annual Saint Patrick's Day Dance. We finish the year looking forward to three more years in Ken Hi. fPage 62 j Wage 611 Johnson, Kenzo Johnson, Mary Jones, Josephine Joseph, Emaline Joseph, Hilda Juare, Gertrude Kalwarski, Stanley Kanaan, Nagy Kunicki, Edward Kautzmann, Rita Jane Keitzer, Charles Keizmer, Rose Keller, Eulah Kerr, Jimmy Kersten, Lillian Kieszek, Edward Klaes, Anna Mae Kleisner, Ruth Klingensmith, Miriam Kochanski, Walter Konselman, Sam Kopczynski, Walter Kozikowsky, Reinalcl Kozilnicky, Mille Kozlowski, Sophie Kraft, Anne Krause, Dorothy Krynicki, Wanda Kubit, Blanche Kubit, Stanley Kuchta, Joseph Kumacheski, Betty Kuntz, Clair Kurocik, Martin Kyle, Alvin Lacey, Ralph Lamie, Katherine Laporte, Sam Latona, John Laughlin, Edward Lavery, Charles Lavery, Jim Leech, Raymond Leipertz, Mae Dorothy 4 'L Libengood, Jack Lilli, Robert - Lindh, Harold Lindh, Paul Little, Ralph Litvinovicz, Anna Litvinovicz, Sophia Lloyd, Ethel Mae Long, William Lucci, Sam Lukomski, John Luther, Dana Lyle, Dorothy Jean Magoulis, John -fPage 601 CLASS ROLL, continued Mangini, Charles Mangone, Frances Marello, Rose Marin, Sam Marotti, Anna Helen Marrash, Louis Mashick, Arthur Matergia, Orlando Mateya, Leo Mazoski, Lottie Mazur, Helen Mazur, Regina Mazza, Edith McAllister, Eugene McCready, Wilbur McGinnis, Ruth McHugh, Doris Mcllwain, Betty McKeever, Walter McKinnon, Louise McQuaide, Janet Mears, Margaret Ann Menk, Ruth Mennitto, Reynold Meyer, Loa Jane Mike, Dorothy Miller, Louis Mishtal, John Mohr, Dorothy Mohr, Rosetta Montgomery, Harry Moran, Joe Morton, Eugene Mufiley, Albert Mulholland, Lester Murray, Helen Naamy, Edna Nader, Joseph Nasser, Edward Neahmia, Mary Neahmia, Rose Nealer, LaVerne Nevling, Marjory Niland, Dot ' Nolf, Ethel Mae O'Brien, Betty.

Miss Fink, Mr. Walter An interesting study in contrasts would surely be afforded by peeping at the awed, though not altogether subdued, seventh graders of four years ago, and then observing the confident, self-assured sophomores of today. The advancement we have made is something of which to be proud. We have supplemented our regular school work with helpful clubs, such as Glee Clubs, Civics and Stamp Clubs. Socially we have added out bit to the high school records with successful freshman and sophomore dances and skates. Many lasting friendships were made when the graduates of Main Street Junior High came to Ken Hi last fall. - As we look forward to the remaining two years, we pay tribute not only to the spirit ofour fellow classmen-their initiative, originality, friendliness and spirit of cooperation--but also to the teachers who have helped us to advance thus far.

Zdila, Emily The Class of Nineteen Thirty-Seven ln retrospect, the past years have been a colorful historical pageant, built against an unusually effective setting, the characters admirably portrayed by the Class of 1937. The scene opened with the class as seventh and eighth graders. Very little happened because everything was new and we had to adjust ourselves. The music clubs helped to relieve the monotony of the regular routine. Then as freshmen, being the upper classmen in Junior High, we began to take part in the activities of Ken Hi. The class promoted a skate and a com- mendable Saint Patrick's Day Dance which led up to a fascinating climax, the Junior High School Commencement. Now, the scene changed for we had reached the Senior High School. With the epithet "Sophs" now affixed to the characters, growth and development were very noticeable. All could see that the skate and Sophomore Hop were events worthy of an older and more experienced group. As juniors, advancing upward in the scale of importance, the Masque Ball came to life amidst a variety of intriguing colors and costumes. Looking forward to the climax of this year, the class began preparation for the Junior- Senior Prom by presenting a musical comedy entitled "Betty Who?," an extremely successful and historical venture. A new scene lies ahead-one of new experiences, new experiments-a scene in which our class hopes to accomplish more than ever before. Anticipating the grand finale, commencement, in which the massing of the entire castrwill be the most im- pressive scene of all. the class will find that painstaking and enthusiastic production offers rewards worthwhile.

Let me again feel the thrill I once knew, Help me recapture that fresh point of view. II Let me be bashful, wondering, and shy- Look on the seniors with worshipping eye. Let me forget all the facts I have learned, Leave but the incense my dream gods have earned. III Backward, turn backward--let me once more Dwell in that sunshiny heaven of yore, Warm me with memories ere I say "Goodbye" To all my loved school-days in Dear Old Ken Hi. -Edith Middleby QWirh apologies to A.

While trying to do this, We ofthe staff have also tried in the theme of the hook, to catch something of the spirit of the pioneers of our val, ley. We trust that our school spirit is identical with their initiative and de- termination and we hope that in some Way every page of this hook will reflect the real spirit of Ken Hi.

They played their games as preliminaries to the regular varsity contests and proved themselves able contestants in close, interesting and well-played games. Outstanding were the games with Parnassus and Arnold, arch rivals of Ken Hi. Arnold, who went as far as the junior W. P, l. A. L. finals, was given a real tussle each time. The Arnolclites mustered every ounce of strength to down the plucky little Kensters. Much credit is due Mr. Lenox, the coach, for the fine spirit shown by the boys. The boys showed splendid team work. Each did his best for the good of the team. lt is this training and spirit that will some day make the boys valuable members of the varsity. fPage 921 Vlfarchol, I o h n s, Hileman, VARSITY Abraham, Albert, Bayster, Eule- bosh, Faldowslci, joseph, Kertis, Mackool, Mazur, Parkhill, Tim- l mins, Richardson fmanagerl.

Black, former Kittanning High School coach and an official referee, acts as coach for both teams. The freshman team, a member of the junior High League, had a very poor sea- son, winning only two games out of twelve played. These losses were attributed to lack of practice and to the fact that the boys had never played together before entering Vocational School. The varsity squad enjoyed a much better season than the freshmen, winning eighteen of the twenty eight games played. Of this group of players only three will remain to play next year. At the end of their season the varsity team had the pleasure of participating in the Falcon's junior Gold Medal Tournament in which they reached third place. Ralph Timmins received medals for sportsmenship and for being the outstanding player on the losing team. Timmins and joseph both won places on the second All Star Team. Each boy who played in the tournament for Vocational School received a bronze basketball as a token of his accomplishment.

Opponents 6951 The close of the 1935-36 basketball season marked another successful campaign for Ken Hi. A glance at the records would show that the Kenmen were rather slow starters. The Red and Black were able to win only three of the twelve games in the first half of the schedule, also playing a tie for the first time in their history. The latter part of the schedule showed a marked improvementg the boys lost only three, while winning nine. A totaling of the records would show twelve victories, eleven defeats, and one tie. The Kenmen were able to break even in the season's "warm up" games. The sectional race seemed well-balanced. The Kenmen won five and lost five, placing third with a .500 average. For the second consecutive year in as many starts, the Red and Black won first honors in the A. K. V. Tournament. The Flying Dutch- men were presented the beautiful Fintex trophy, which they must win twice more to keep for all time. fPage 901 VARSITY Q hute, Almasy, Benson i, Shukis, Linko, Shonesk o Shiprak lxernan M nm, Kreitzer, Kaczmarczylc . , I Y Y Y C a Painter, Sampson Cman lye-rs Cmanagerj.

The record doesn't reveal, however, how difficult was the schedule which they successfully faced. Of the nine opposing teams, no less than six were Class AA. Coach Glock presented, as always, a clean, hard-fighting eleven. Belle Town- ship served as a test in the season's opener. Har-Brac was met abroad in an eve- ning contest. Arnold, Ken Hi's traditional rival proved to be very stubborn, hold- ing the Glockmen to a scoreless tie. The Red and Black met their first defeat at the hands of a passing team from Charleroi. Ken Hi Hopened up" for the first time of the season coming from behind to run and pass its way to a close victory over a clever Mclieesport team. The Kenmen proved their defensive strength in a very close decision over a highlyftouted Monessen team. The Flying Dutchmen proved to be too strong for the visiting Braddock team. Greensburg was the fifth Class AA team to be met. The Gloclcmen fought valiantly, but suffered their second defeat by a single touchdown. Nine seniors played their last game for Ken Hi when New Castle defeated the Red and Black in the Ken Hi Stadium. fPuge 891 Cl-IEER LEADERS OFFICERS Cheer Leaders .....

They were determined to organize a better cheering section and received splendid co-operation from the student body. "Ken" and "Kenna," red and black yarn dolls, were made to earn money for the cheerleaders' uniforms and met with instant success. Several new yells were introduced: "Yea Team, Victory," "Yea Red, Yea Black," and the very popular "K", New motions were applied to "Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight," "Fight, Team, Fight" and the spirited "Hit 'Em High, Hit 'Em Low." Much school spirit was also created by this new song: FLYING DUTCHMEN CTune-"ON W1scoNsiN'lJ Flying Dutchmen, Flying Dutchmen Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight, Fight Take that hall right down the field We've all our faith in you-Rah, Rah, Rah.

Imagine a reckless and wealthy youth who writes ardent love letters, an attorney brother-in-law who steals them and then gets his hand bag mixed up with the grip ofa burglar, and the burglar who tries to recover his plunder. Add to these the maid, the English butler, and the police who proceed to live up to the name "flat feet." And finally, picture the screamingly funny situations in which these and other characters may find themselves and you have a play where the swiftness of the action never halts for an instant and where the lines themselves hold a fund of humor. flange 84j Stage Managers.,lohn Bulebosh Frank Pazul, Walter Shearer Lois Schriver, Dorothy Cook Varsity Club OFFICERS President ........,. jack Villella Vice President. . .Leonard Benson SccreraryfTreasu.rer ......... .............AlbertDe Mayo Sponsor .......,.....

Mr. Anderson The Varsity Club, an honorary athletic fraternity composed of lettermen in any of the athletic fields, proved itself a capable unit in the management of the A. K. V. Tournament where they directed the visiting teams, managed the locker rooms and handled the check room. In addition it presented a trophy to the third place team in the tournament. Meetings were held irregularly and only when the necessity arose for a meeting. The club was dissolved after basketball season when its period of utility was over. The Vocational Hi-Y was organized in the year l934. it is supervised by Mr. R. J. Anderson, vocational patternmaking teacher, and is governed by a group of four officers. The club promotes many good projects helping to keep the Hi-Y ideals of clean spirit, clean bodies, clean minds, clean speech and of perfecting a better understanding of true friendship. y f Many interests are included in the activities sponsored by the club. A repre- sentative has been sent to the Older Boys conference and to a Hi-Y training camp. The organization as a group has visited various industries, among them being the Aluminum Company plant and the Allegheny Steel works The club holds an annual benefit show, the proceeds of which are used in the initiation of new members. fPage 831
