"I HEAR AMERICA
S NGI "
db- "I hear America sing-
- ing, her varied carols I
,-.N Q hearf' You know, Walt
Whitman was right. The
United States is a singing nation. Her var-
ied songs are sung by all her people in all
walks of life.
Ken Hi is a typical bit of America. Our
music is the same that is sung and played in
thousands of other Ken I-Ii's all over the
country. We hear swing, an important item
to American youth, in some form or other
every day. It is so much a part of our school
life that we couldnat get away from it even
if we wanted to do so. But Ken Hi also has
a deep appreciation of the finer music that
has lived and will live for generations. The
feeling for good music shown by the band
and choir is reflected in the enthusiasm dis-
played by the student body for these or-
Ar the football and basketball games our
marches reveal the pulse of Ken Hi. When
the crowd is in the right spirit, tense and
eager, we hear a new beat in the music.
When "Ken Hi's Sturdy Menl' or 'QFight,
Ken Hi, Fightv really rolls out of the crowd,
and there,s that extra something behind
every word and beat, then we have school
spirit and our ball team can't lose. "It's for
the clear old school I love so wellg it's for
the dear old school I yell, I yell, I yellli'
At the half, after a preliminary march or
two, the music takes a different trend. The
whole crowd rises and pays tribute to our
Alma Mater. "Hail to thee, our Alma Mater!
We with reverence sing to thee of our love
and our devotion, of our faith and loyalty.
We will cherish thy protection, we will strive
to win thee fameg we will thirst for thy af-
fection, Ken Hi, we will always love thy
name." The Alma Mater, besides being sung
at games, is closely woven into our school
life. Each time we hear it played or sung,
fresh memories arise in our minds. Because
of this association, the Taleoken this year
has been constructed with the Alma Mater
as a theme. It is a kind of national anthem
for Ken I-li and applies to all our activities-
work and play, equally.
Now as we, the class of 1945, graduate
from our beloved school, let's pick up the
torch for our country, let's shout our
national Alma Mater, "The Star Spangled
Banner," to the world, let's prove that a
singing nation is not a soft one, but is strong
and just. There's a long struggle ahead:
first, to safeguard our democratic way of
life, and then, to keep it. It is up to us, for
"conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
and this be our motto, in God is our trust."
And our Star Spangled Banner shall wave.
THE SPIRIT GF
We are a challenged youth.
db- War has found us eager to fight
and die to preserve our song of
D -' Freedom, peace asks that we make
it the anthem of all peoples. In
our wartime years at Ken I-Ii we
have learned to sing that song in all its fullness,
its quality, its tone. We have lived it in our open
class discussions, we have been aware of it during
our almost forgotten air-raid drills, we have
learned to evaluate it in the brutal terms of empty
classroom seats and full hearts.
We of this graduating class realize that it is
our responsibility to introduce to the youth of
every other country this great melody which is
such an integral part of our life. It is our duty to
bring to the lips of all peoples a song of liberty
such as we in Ken I-Ii have known all our lives.
That they will welcome it, we are sure, for to their
thwarted, starved minds it means more than just
freedom of speech and press, from hunger and
want. To them it is a symbol of free thinking, of
living as they desire, of freedom from oppression.
For them it can be priced only as men's lives are
With this in mind we strengthen our de-
termination to give to them the opportunity to
join America as liberty-loving nations, and to help
them realize their hopes. Our preparation for the
task has been well begun, and we leave Ken I-Ii
to enter a school m'ore demanding than any which
we could have conceived a few years ago, to be-
come a part of a great chorus of all peoples, in-
spired by a harmony of tolerance, equality, and

THE BOARD OF EDUCATION
Seated: Mr. Blackburn, Mr. Daughenbauglx, Mr. Stewart, Miss Mazur.
Standing: Mr. McKean, Mr. Gillis, Mr. Wolfe, Dr. Churchill, Mr. Vaughn, Dr. Chapman.
Here is the group of men who meet regularly
to formulate the broad policies and make the
over-all plans for the efficient operation of the
New Kensington schools. The importance of
sound education and an adequate foundation for
the solving of future problems is fully realized
by this group of foresighted men. To supervise
the activities and welfare of the New Kensington
School District is the greatest responsibility of the
Board of Education. The plans of the board are
put into effective operation by Dr. E. T. Chap-
man, superintendent, who has general supervision
of the whole school system. Although the mem-
bers of the board are chiefly concerned with the
more important phases of school work, they are
not too busy to see an occasional game, to atrend
a play, or even to drop in on an assembly pro-
gram. This year the members are Mr. A. F.
Daughenbaugh, president, Mr. C. H. Vaughn,
Jr., vice president, Dr. H. V. Churchill, treasurer,
Mr. F. W. McKean, solicitor, Mr. E. H. Black-
burn, Mr. Mancel Gillis, Mr. Howard Stewart,
Mr. H. L. Wolf. Miss Veronica Mazur is secretary
of the board.

Greetings to the Class of 1945-
You are graduating while a great war is being fought. Our men and boys are
suffering and dying to defend America and to preserve our Democratic way of life.
It will be your privilege to contribute your full share to the national effort in
total war. In so doing hold fast to your ideals. Your dreams will come true if you
work consistently to achieve their substance. The ideals and dreams of youth are
our best hope for a lasting peace and a better world. May the clouds that hang so
heavily over us soon show their silver lining.
Congratulations and personal best wishes to each of you.

Let's sing "Ken Hi's sturdy men-in Yes, let's all sing "My Country, 'Tis of
Thee!" How better can all you boys and girls keep your faith in Ken Hi and build
your love for your country, now so precious? In September 1941, 556 boys and girls
entered the Freshman Class of Ken Hi and the honored list of graduates from this
group now appears on the pages of this book. In years to come, in Whatever way
this book may bring back to you through memory your years here, may you always
keep your "faith and loyaltyi' in Ken Hi and in our country.

Mr. Russell Artman
Last fall Ken Hi's beloved geometry teacher passed away after a long illness.
An instructor in Ken Hi for twenty years, Mr. Artman had a long and full career,
one which we believe was of pleasure and Value to him and which certainly was of
x great profit to all of us now attending Ken I-Ii and to hundreds of former students.
Every day, students entered his classes prepared not only to learn but also to laugh,
looking up to him as a teacher, an advisor, and a friend. He inspired the respect of
the whole schogl. We will not forget him.

CL SS OFFICERS
Seniors: James Burgart, Samuel Tamburo. Miss Walker, Mrs. Klinke, Michael Michael, Kenneth Adams.
Juniors: Mrs. Winger, Robert McLaughlin, Robert Edwards, Palmer Means, Valentino Mennito, Mr.
Sophomores: James Shields, Gilbert Ashor, Mrs. Terwilligcr, Miss Casillo, Raymond Owczykowski,
Freshmen: Miss Stuchell, Donald Powers, Bryce Schrecongost, Dahn Cappel, Charles Best, Miss Mathison.
This year the boys seem to have monopolized the
official positions in all four classes. However, with the
help of hardworking sponsors, they have done a great
job in handling the assemblies and various social
The freshman class sponsored the successful Snow-
ball l-lop in January. Their original decorating and
colored lighting drew favorable comment from the large
crowd. By working hard the officers, Don Powers, presi-
dent, Dahn Cappel, vice presidentg Bryce Schrecengost,
secretary, and Charles Best, treasurer, have made fresh-
man affairs prominent.
In order to finance the Sophomore Hop, the mem-
bers of the class sold Ken Hi stationery very profitably.
The sales were capably promoted by Raymond Owczy-
kowski, president, Gilbert Ashor, vice president, James
Shields, secretary, and Dale Evans, treasurer.
The junior officers and sponsors probably get more
headaches and hard work than any of the others. They
have to worry about the Prom. The Harvest Moon Ball
in October was just the start of the endless money-raising
activities of the junior class. School letters, Flying
Dutchmen, and candy followed. However, the Prom is
always worth the trouble and Robert McLaughlin, presi-
dent, Palmer Means, vice president, Valentino Mennito,
secretary, and Robert Edwards, treasurer, have done
their best to make it a success.
The senior advisors and officers bear the brunt of
assemblies, Commencement, and Class Day. This year
the honored four officers were Mike Michaels, president,
James Burgart, vice president, Sam Tamburo, secretary,
and Kenneth Adams, treasurer.

"To create, extend, and maintain through-
out the school and the community high stand-
ards of Christian character" is the purpose of
the Tri-Hi-Y organization which every new
member of the Tri-Hi-Y memorizes before she
becomes an active member. Both junior and
senior girls are eligible to membership in this
club. Events included a candy-cookie sale day,
a supper dance, a mother-daughter banquet and
attendance at a rally at Har Brack High School
as the guests of the Tri-I-li-Y of that school. In-
stead of distributing the usual Christmas bas-
kets, the girls decided to make a contribution to
the Y. M. C. A. building fund. Miss Boucher
and Miss Casillo are the sponsors.

The familiar battle cry, "Assume the
angle," followed by the whack of a paddle,
launched the Hi-Y's informal initiation one
chilly day in October. However, the new mem-
bers, wearing short pants, torn shirts, and un-
paired shoes and socks took it good naturedly
fgroanj and even uvolunteeredn to treat the
old members with cigarettes, cigars, and
candy. One of several new activities initiated
this year was a host committee to meet visiting
coaches and officials. At Christmas time the
members bought and decorated the Christmas
tree which was placed by the trophy case.
Officers were Dave Cooper, president, Jim
Whalen, vice-president, Don Rupert, secretary,
and Dick Orr, treasurer.
JUNIOR RED CROSS COUNCIL
The Junior Red Cross Council is com-
prised of a boy and girl elected from each
seventh, eighth, and ninth grade section room.
These members act as representatives of their
rooms at Council meetings. They report the
suggestions and activities to their rooms, thus
enabling all to participate and to increase the
amount of work done. This year the council,
under the sponsorship of Miss Branthoover,
packed Christmas boxes for children overseas,
participated in the Red Cross enrollment drive,
and knit squares for afghans. The hard work-
ing officers for 1944-45 were Don Powers,
president, Leone Phillips, vice president, and
Jean Walters, secretary.
SENIOR RED CROSS COUNCIL
The Senior Red Cross Council has proved
a valuable aid to a worthy cause. Under the
able leadership of Mrs. Terwilliger, the council
has quite successfully completed many projects,
including packing Christmas boxes with soap,
toothpaste, tooth brushes, small toys, and other
useful articles to be sent to war-stricken child-
ren overseas. Part of the reward for this work
comes in the form of occasional letters received
from some grateful boy or girl who has been
given one of these boxes. Many students will-
ingly helped by knitting patches for afghans.
The students who meet to plan the councills
activities deserve commendation for their work.

Our Choir certainly deserves a round of
applause for the fine work it has done this year.
In rain or shine, sleet or snow, the members of
the Choir faithfully come out to rehearsal every
weekday morning at 8 oiclock. When the
Christmas season drew near, the Choir donned
robes, struggled manfully with white collars,
and successfuly presented a radio program and
an assembly program of Christmas music. Then
in the spring, the Choir proved its versatility
as well as its ability by presenting a concert of
folk songs, Negro spirituals, religious songs
and others. A definite asset to the Choir is Miss
Emogene Whitacre, whose able directing is of
the finest quality.
Strike up the hand! In their snappy red
and black uniforms the band presents a spec-
tacle of which we are all proud. The musicians
are always ready to cheer the team on to vic-
tory or to lead the student body in the stirring
strains of the Alma Mater. In the gym and on
the field, the band provides the spirit which
helps make our games such a success. The new
band mistress, Miss Vifhitacre, has the necessary
vim and vigor to put the band through its
paces. Although the 1945 Commencement will
remove quite a few from its ranks, we all know
that the band will continue to be one of Ken
I-Ii's most important organizations.

For the past four years, the confusion gen-
erally accompanying the first week of school
has been noticeably decreasing. The main rea-
son for this is the Ken Hi Handbook, pub-
lished each year by a small staff of students
under the sponsorship of Miss Owen and Miss
Armstrong. Year by year this little book of
"vital information" has become more and more
indispensable to Ken Hi, particularly to stu-
dents entering the school for the first time.
The Handbook has also been the salvation of
many a student who has forgotten his book's
title or author when "Book Report Time"
rolled around. For these and many other rea-
sons we may well give three cheers for the
hard-working staff and sponsors. V
"Our school exactly as it goesv is the apt
motto of these journalists. All of them are first
year students in the subject, and, in addition to
their textbook work, they find time to gather
and prepare for publication the news of Ken
Hi. Class functions, club activities, and athletic
feats are their material, and the staff members
interview celebrities, write feature articles and
editorials. This year pen sketches and cartoons
were used effectively and appreciated.by the
twelve hundred readers. Under the supervision
of Miss Russell, Bernard Koperek, editor, and
Phyllis Croissant, associate editor, the staff
publishes an excellent newspaper twenty five
times a year-a real accomplishment in this year
of paper shortages and printing difficulties.
The Bank Staff handles the financial mat-
ters of the school. The staff includes four tell-
ers, a check-writer, four bookkeepers, one mes-
senger, and two auditors. When the members
are chosen, they serve the second semester of
their junior year and the first semester of their
senior year. These students work with Mr.
Vorlage, the cashier of the bank. Section rooms,
classes, organizations, individuals - all are
served by the students' bank. Its most import-
ant duty, caused by the war, is selling war
stamps and bonds. The members of the Bank
Staff are a very efficient group, very depend-
able and trustworthy. Ken Hi is much indebted
to this group.

works quietly in a corner of Miss Boucher's
office? She is one of Ken Hi,s Attendance
Staff. These girls give up their study halls
voluntarily to help keep that intricate system of
checking the attendance running smoothly.
They make it possible to keep available at all
times up-to-date information about absentees
and late-comers. In their spare time they do
odd jobs and run errands for the office staff.
These girls deserve special praise for the grand
job they did during the heavy December snows
when there were many students who were un-
able to attend school or were working.
This club, under the able leadership of Mr.
Keiser, is composed of senior commercial stu-
dents who are recommended by the commercial
faculty. The active Commercial Club has two
meetings each month-the first Thursday and
the third Thursday. All sorts of business prob-
lems are discussed, and, at the social meetings,
the members turn their eyes to the future. Ar
these meetings, men from the business world
fell the members what is expected of secretarial
workers. The Commercial Club has a member-
ship of sixty-five students. The club has had
a very successful year, as it presented two tea
dances, a pretzel day, and a radio program.

Activity is the by-word of this organiza-
tion. Each member does her bit once a week in
assisting Miss Rosemarie Pascaretta in the man-
agement of her gym classes. Here the girls
learn the fundamentals of fair play and im-
partial judgment. In lighter moments, the girls
turn their attention to dancing and bowling,
activities to which they cordially invite the
student body. An informal initiation of all new
members insures good fellowship. And right
good fellows are the officers-Natalie Oswald
is president, Norma Hardy, vice president,
Martha Black, secretary, and Marjorie Hayes,
treasurer. The Leaders Club is one of the most
vital and helpful clubs in Ken Hi.

Backing Trade School in all its events
throughout the year is the Vocational Hi-Y.
This group consists of juniors and seniors who
meet regularly to plan social and community
affairs. The purpose of this club is to arouse
the interest of the students in promoting clean
living, clean speech, and clean sports in the
Vocational School and in everyday life. Spon-
soring this organization is Mr. Frazier, a mem-
ber of the faculty of the Vocational School.
The president of this organization calls meet-
ings when matters of importance arise. New
members are elected at the beginning of each
school year and are introduced into the club
by a very strenuous initiation.
VOCATIONAL BOARD OF ACTIVITIES
The Vocational Board of Activities is a
group of students elected to that position by the
student body. Their duties are to govern all
student affairs such as dances, skates, sports
events, and assemblies. This board sponsors the
vocational basketball squad. Mr. L. Black is
the advisor and also coaches the Basketball
team. The membership is composed of a repre-
sentative from the sophomore, junior and
senior classes and the presidents of the junior
and senior classes. Regular meetings are held
to plan interesting activities for the students.
This group is very active in making possible
many athletic and social events for the students
of the Vocational School.

Much credit for the well regulated traffic
in our halls should be given to the Monitors.
These boys, directed by Mr. Mooney, are sta-
tioned at strategic points in the halls and on the
stairways to supervise traffic. The monitors
assist the students during fire drills and con-
duct the section rooms to their places when
assemblies are held. One monitor is on hall
duty every period, acting as a messenger and as
a committee of one to welcome visitors. New
members are selected by the present members
and their sponsor, and approved by the office.
The 1944-45 officers are Milton Davis, presi-
dent, Bert Johnston, secretary, and Dick Orr,
The Victory Club is one of the most active
organizations in Ken Hi. Under the able spon-
sorship of Miss Mathison and Miss Gosetti, it
carries on its work of selling stamps and bonds
to the students each weelc. Through the efforts
of a publicity committee war posters are ex-
hibited, a score-board is maintained, and the
drives are publicized. Each class is headed by
a colonel and each section room by a captain.
The captains sell the stamps in their own rooms
and the reports are handled by the colonels. A
salute to the Victory Club which is doing so
much to aid the war effort in our school!

calls to the cast of "Double Exposure," the
annual play presented by the Dramatic Club
under the capable direction of Mrs. Klinlce.
The receipts from this project are used to
purchase lights and other essentials for dra-
matic productions, besides making it possible
for all the "actors" to witness a professional
performance at the Nixon Theater in Pitts-
burgh. The president, Gene Jiusti, vice-presi-
dent, Marjorie Lucas, secretary, Gretchen Van
Winkleg and treasurer, Audrey Westerman
have led the club successfully this year. Activi-
ties included one-act plays, produced, directed,
and acted by the students, and initiations of

The Ken Hi orchestra, although very limit-
ed in instrumentation, has progressed greatly
this year under Miss Whitacreis capable and
exacting leadership. The excellent violin section
is one of the orchestra's chief claims to fame.
In fact, the notes issuing from 208 the third
period each morning have been anything but
sour. Members have learned to follow the con-
ducting of a leader and to interpret and play
classical music. Despite the fact that public ap-
pearances of the orchestra have been few, it
has provided Valuable experience for those in-
terested in music. This organization is another
which helps to stimulate the spirit of American
youth through the medium of music.
THE BOARD OF ACTIVITIES
The outstanding event sponsored by the
Board of Activities was the banquet served
December 7 to representatives and sponsors of
classes and organizations. To mark the twenti-
eth anniversary of the Board of Activities, Mr.
Weaver reviewed many of the interesting prob-
lems which the board has discussed and solved
from time to time. An addition to the board this
year was the election by the sophomore, junior,
and senior classes of a member at large from
each class for a term of one year. At regular
meetings of the board various aspects of school
life affecting classes, clubs, athletics, and the
student body as a whole are thoroughly dis-
cussed and decisions reached.
NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
The greatest scholastic honor in New Ken-
sington I-Iigh School is a membership in the
National Honor Society. Grades alone are not
sufficient, as character, leadership, and service
are important. A few students are elected by the
faculty council at the end of their junior year
to maintain the society until the fall election.
This year the club expects to amend the Con-
stitution, making it possible for students to be
eligible for membership after completing thrity
weeks in Ken Hi. The new sponsor is Mr.
Mooney and the treasurer, Miss Hawk. The
student officers are Tom Stevens, president,
Dave Evans, vice president, and Dolores

Ken I-Ii's Assembly Staff deserves a lot of
credit for the many menial tasks which they
perform. We students take many of their act-
ivities for granted. The Staff must operate all
movie equipment, the record machine, and the
public address system. In addition to their
many duties, which require missing classes, they
must maintain at least a C average in their
studies. All members of the Staff take a movie
operator,s test. Those who pass are awarded
the amateur movie projector,s license. A few of
the Staff's former members now are serving as
operators in the Armed Forces. The members
of this organization and their sponsor, Mr.
Jefferson, have made possible much of the
entertainment enjoyed by the students of Ken
Hi in assembly programs.

The College Club, sponsored by Mr.
Wfeaver, endeavors to help its members choose
the schools they will attend and the courses
which they wish to take. Representatives from
various eastern and mid-western colleges and
universities are invited to speak to the club.
During the second semester the Guidance Of-
fice Staff gives intelligence and mental matur-
ity tests. These serve the dual purpose of fa-
miliarizing pupils with long, grueling examina-
tions and of letting colleges lcnow the standing
of future students. The results of the tests de-
termine which students may compete for the
various scholarships which are available. The
College Club is very helpful to those students
who wish to further their education.

The men who sweat out the game on the
bench endure no more torture than do the
coaches. Every tense moment, every good play,
can clearly be read on the face of the coach.
When things go wrong, the cheering loses its
zest, the players tire, but the coach's "get in
there and fightf' keeps the players going. The
coach's job does not end with the long hours of
tedious drill and training, for he must be a
patient advisor as well as a stern disciplinarian.
Ken Hi is indeed proud of its fine staff of
coaches. Through their endeavor they have
proved themselves worthy of public as well as
student praise. They are not content with mere-
ly doing their jobs well, they are moving the
goals of Ken Hi's sports ever higher. Ever
ready for new ideas, these men have taken
every opportunity to encourage the students to
participate in sports. These are the men to
whom we students look for leadership in the
new athletic programs being planned. The
coaches of Ken Hi are really doing their part
to build a stronger America.
Here are the members of the athletic staff,
the men to whom we owe so much: Mr. Lenox,
athletic director, Mr. Glock, basketball, Mr.
Fletcher, football, Mr. Jefferson, baseball and
junior high basketball, Mr. Slosky, junior var-
sity basketball, and Mr. Pierre, football.

With a squad of only seven, the cheerleaders of 1944-1945 captured and held
our interest in, as well as our respect for, their abilities. In their eye-arresting red and
black uniforms, the fellows and girls held their own against all comers on the field
and floor. Their two purposeful young leaders, Aenicl Horton and Agnes Uhar,
with the aid of the two sponsors, Miss Pascaretta and Miss Rankin, established a
hard-working team. Their diligence and faithfulness in turning out, rain or shine,
is to be admired. The hours of practice that preceded each game were plainly seen
in the precision of their work. Our hearty thanks go out to them, these cheerleaders

second string played most of the game. Mike
Michael scored three of Ken I-liis six touch-
The Kenmen aroused new enthusiasm in
the students by upsetting a highly touted Red-
stone eleven, 6 to 0. Harry Tamburo inter-
cepted a pass to set up the touchdown. After
three plunges had failed to net a score, Joe
Veltri passed to Sam Tamburo for the touch-
Ken Hi came through in the season finale
beating previously undefeated Kiski, 19 to 0.
The game was played on a muddy field at Herr
Stadium, which the Kislci boys sarcastically
called 'tthe local duck pondf,
A summary shows that Ken Hi won 4,
lost 3, and tied 1, and outscored their oppon-
ents, 83 to 59. At the close of the season, the
team elected Henry "Barrel', Falcon and Sam
Tamburo as co-captains. Each had four years
of football behind him.

Although the Kenmen of '44-'45 did fall a little short of winning the WPIAL
section championship, they rang up one of the best records in this school's history.
'Wfhen the first day of practice arrived, Coach Glock's squad consisted of only four
"hold overs" from last yearfs varsity. But in a few weeks he built up such a mighty
team that it presented the fans not only with plenty of excitement, but also with
fourteen victories in seventeen games. This year's squad, like the Kenmen of the
past, had that certain spark that is typical of the Glockmen. When most teams would
be giving up the game as lost the Flying Dutchmen start uswishingv away and, as
the fans know, have won many a game because they wouldn't quit until the last
In the six pre-league games, the Kensters came out on top in all six. Among
these victories they knocked down the famous Avalon and Duquesne teams. When
the league games began, the Glockmen opened up against the Ford City five. They
easily added them to their list of victories and also Kittanning in the following
game. Butler, by the heartbreaking score of 38-34 was the first to stop the winning
streak of the Kenmen, but unfortunately not the last. At the half of the league
season the Glockmen found themselves part of a triangular tie with Ford City and
Butler. Opening up the second half they dropped the first game to Ford City. This
broke up the triangle and little hope was left for the Glock five. They knocked off
their next three opponents only to lose the last game of the season to the mighty
Har-Brack. This left the Kensters second in the league's record at the end of the

Ken Hi's 1944 baseball team, coached by Mr. Jefferson, played good ball all
season and garnered seven wins out of the twelve games played. The Kenmen drop-
ped their opener to Freeport 5 to 0 but came right back to shade Freeport 2 to 1 and
Arnold 1 to 0. West Deer edged out the Kensters 2 to 1 in an exhibition game. Then
the team really went to town, beating Tarentum 5 to 0, Springdale 5 to 0, Har-Braclc
7 to 4, and Arnold 9 to O. West Deer again barely shaded the Kenmen, beating them
5 to 4. In a real slugfest the boys rolled over Tarentum 21 to 7. Two defeats closed
the season, these coming at the hands of Springdale 6 to 5, and Freeport 10 to 4.
Sam Fritz and Dick Clark shared the pitching chores with Dick winning all six
games he pitched. In his l to 0 defeat of Arnold, he pitched no-hit ball and struck
out 15. In defeating Har-Braclc 7 to 4 he fanned 18 batsmen.

THROUGH WAR YEARS
Proud, eager, patriotic men,
Plunging into unknown depths,
Ready to serve 'Our Country' when
Menacing hands threaten democratic concepts.
Humble, just, merciful attitudes
O'er all free lands, pure selfless flames,
Shining examples of fortitude,
In history's record engraving their names.
Skylark, "A String of Pearls,,' "Tan-
gerinev-these are the songs we were singing
in December, 1941, when Ken Hi was a school
as yet untouched by war. It was on the eighth
day of that month, though-that Monday when
we sat huddled near our classroom radios to
hear Congress declare war-that we, the Class
of 1945, got our first glimpse of the excitement
it brings. We were freshmen then, in a school
that looked as it always had looked. We were
were freshmen who had been brought that far
with the feeling that war was the bombing of
places we had never seen, the death of people
we had never met. War to us was glory.
Soon, little changes crept into our life.
We drilled for any emergency, some of us be-
came CSCD messengers, many of us studied
First Aid, and we sang "Praise the Lord and
Pass the Ammunition." War was fun.
When we returned to school for our soph-
omore year, we got acquainted-Parnassusites
and Ken Hi veterans-but we were disappoint-
ed to find that too many favorite teachers had
left for the service. That year a few of them
and some uniformed boys visited Ken Hi on
short furloughs. We envied them their great
adventure and laughed when they claimed we
were to be envied. War was the dazzle of uni-
In our junior year we were a little more
sober, for each of us could mention at least
one Gold Star name of a friend or former Ken
Hi student. Rationing had tightened up, so that
it was getting harder for Mrs Lenox to main
tain the quality of food in the cafeteria. By
that time visiting servicemen were not an
unusual sight in our halls, and boys began to
leave in greater numbers than we could deem
necessary. Even our own classmates enlisted.
War was ugoodbyen.
Today we are in our fourth wartime year
at Ken Hi. Seniors now, and graduating, we
realize that all our high school education, all
our high school fun has been colored by the
red demon of battle. When we glance at our
service flag that commands the hall we read
there that almost fifteen hundred boys and girls
who attended Ken Hi have entered the armed
services while we have passed four years as
students, and more than forty-five have already
given up their lives. It has taken these facts to
teach us that-War is a hard lesson.
Because it has been so much a part of us,
then, we have set aside these pages in our book
to pay tribute to those of our teachers and
alumni who have served and are yet serving on
the fronts. They have glorified the name of
America, they have carried with them to the
lines the principles they taught and learned
here in Ken Hi. We are conscious, though, that
the greatest tribute we can offer them cannot
be made in words, but in the completion of the
the task they have started, and the' fulfillment
of their desires for a better world. With the
courage, with the faith, with the humor which
they exemplify, we must do it, for we cannot
let them down. War must never come again.

September 21, 1944
Well, I made my campaign speech for Senior
Class President today. Although making speeches
doesn,t go over with me very well, it was fun. Gee,
Dear Diary, do you think I'l1 make it? If I do, it will
be the biggest thrill I ever had. Here's hoping!
September ZZ, 1944
I guess Iym not much good at making speeches, or
else I just wasn't lucky enough to be elected, But I
was happy to congratulate Senior Class President,
Mike Michael, and his fellow officers-Vice President,
Jimmy Burgartg Secretary, Sam Tamburog and
Treasurer, Kenny Adams.
September 28, 1944
I certainly hope I looked my best today, but I'll
know for sure when those proofs come back. Yes, I
had my Senior picture taken, and guess what-I
skipped a whole period of English by letting kids get
ahead of me. But, believe me, I wasn't the only one
with that idea. Oh, no!
October 20, 1944
At long last the proofs came in today, an.d I never
heard such "Oh-ing" and "Aw-ingu and "Ouch-ing".
Well, I can't say much for mine, but I saw some
pretty nice ones. Really I don't think I look so bad in
a cap and gown as some of the kids do. I saw some
funny ones! Of course, since the directions said
"D0n't expose them to the sunlight", we all walked
home showing them off.
October 21, 1944
Oh, dear, I just couldn't make up my mind as to
how many pictures I would need. I didnit know
whether Aunt Tillie would be angry if she didn't get
one or not. All day kids asked me. "How many are
you getting? I don't know what to do." I just said
"Ditto'l, but finally ordered a dozen with a large one
thrown in. Gee, I hope I have enough.
December 16, 1944
Dear Diary, 4
Today I ordered my name cards. Paul Demma
assured me that I would receive them, at least, by the
day before graduation, so I gave him my dollar.
Gosh, I donlt know what I'11 ever do with a hundred
name cards, but everybody is doing it.
February 21, 1945
I rushed from study hall today to do more ordering
-announcements this time. I joined the long line
outside the bank and overheard someone say, "The
more announcements I send, the more gifts I'l1 re-
ceive. Now let's see 6 times 36--." What character,
I thought, as I placed an order for three announce-
March 9, 1945
I never knew my classmates could do such a good
job of acting until today. A very good one-act play,
called "The Valiant", was presented in Senior as-
sembly by a few of our Dramatic Club proteges. Al-
though it was on the serious side, I think everyone
enjoyed it. I know I did.
March 16, 1945
Chester Dembinski and Rozella Swanson were the
lucky seniors to be crowned Shamrock King and
Queen at the Shamrock ball tonight. Rozella looked
so sweet in her white gown, and Chester was really
handsome in that tux.
April 17, 1945
Tonight my "stage career" at Ken Hi ended. Gee,
it was fun playing in that mystery thriller, "The
Night of January Sixteenth". The house was packed
and lights were bright land I was scaredj. You know,
Dear Diary, I think they liked it-the audience, I
April 24, 1945
My goodness, the man-power shortage is bad when
there aren't any junior or sophomore boys to fill in.
But, forgetting all that, I think it was nice to have
just seniors at the dance tonight, sort of a farewell
party. O, dear, why do I get into these moods!
May 9, 1945
All through the halls today could be seen big black
ties and little black ties, big red bows and little red
bows. Heck, I'm not proud! In spite of my red hair I
wore the biggest red bow that I could find in town.
I have been looking forward to this day all year and
I wasnit disappointed. It was swell!
May 18, 1945
Really, it's a miracle that I'm able to write to you
tonight. My hand is cramped from holding a pen all
day and signing my "John Hancock" in everybody's
book. Besides that, it's pretty late right now for should
I say early-in the morningl. I had a wonderful
time at the prom! "He" told me I looked pretty, and
he was so handsome in his tux. I think I walked on air
May 27, 1945
I thought I would bake in my cap and gown to-
night, and, oh, that red tassel! But, seriously, our
speaker gave us good advice, and somehow I felt a
little frightened and a little proud as I sat there
listening to our baccalaureate sermon.
May 28, 1945
Tonight forthe first time, as I walked down the
aisle and took my seat, I fully realized what it all
meant. It meant that I had just completed twelve
long, happy years of school. I would never be coming
back to those dear days in Ken Hi except in mem-
ories. Dear Diary, as I sat there tonight, and as I
walked up to receive my diploma and mumble "Thank
you," all those memories flashed through my mind.
I don't mind saying that when I walked off that
stage, tears filled my eyes.
