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 -WHITMAN 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- ganizations. 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. S Qi ig DEDICATIQN TO THE SPIRIT GF AMERICAN YOUTH 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 valued. 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 democracy.

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. SUPERINTENDENT DK. E. T. Cllaplllan 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. E. T. Chapman Superintendent of Schools 13 PRINCIPALS ixfif. H. B. WCHVQI' 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. H. B.

JOHNSON J- R- SISLEY Supervisor of Elementary Grades Principal of Junior High School 15 IN MEMORIAM 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. HAZEL ARMSTRONG Civics JOHN BATISTE Bookkeeping M. A. BAUGHMAN History J. L. BLACK Mathematics, Economics, Industrial History ,Qvvngyd k KENNETH B5Ei S Chemistry FLORA G.

Juniors: Mrs. Winger, Robert McLaughlin, Robert Edwards, Palmer Means, Valentino Mennito, Mr. Burnett. Sophomores: James Shields, Gilbert Ashor, Mrs. Terwilligcr, Miss Casillo, Raymond Owczykowski, Dale Evans. 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 activities. 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.

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.

HI-Y 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. JUNIOR RED CROSS First Row: B. Krause, R.

THE CHOIR 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. THE BAND 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. THE CHOIR Director: Miss Whitacre.

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 KENTON IAN "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 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. BANK STAFF 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. BANK STAFF A. Timmins. hard, B. A. Barber, J.

Shep- 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. COMMERCIAL CLUB 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. COMMERCIAL CLUB First Row: P. Fisher, N. Gahagan, J. Shephard, M. Prazenica, S. Rywak, B.

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. LEADERS CLUB First Row: E. Puhalla, R. Bev- eridge, P. Garner, F. Walters, B. . Barber, A. Horton, N. Oswald, . Hardy, E.

VOCATIONAL HI-Y 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.

VICTORY CLUB MONITORS 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, treasurer. VICTORY CLUB 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! DRAMATIC CLUB Places . . . Curtain! These are familiar 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 new members. DRAMATIC CLUB First Row: A. M. Jack, M. F Steele, R. Johnston, M.

ORCHESTRA 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. 1 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 Wright, secretary. BOARD OF ACTIVITIES Seated: R.

ASSEMBLY STAFF 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. ASSEMBLY STAFF S. Haddad. P.

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. First Row: A. Honick, H. Kress J. Valentine, G. Ashor, R. Devine Second Row: I. Short, B.

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 82 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 of '45, 83 BATON TWIRLERS Kneeling: B. Fox, M. Lucas, K. Janibagian, N. M. johnson, B. Keilzer. Standing: W. De Luca. FLAG TWIRLERS R.

In what proved to be one of the year's most thrilling games, the Kenmen opened their season with a 6 to 0 win over Vandergrift. A beautiful twenty-one yard pass from Joe Veltri to Sam Tamburo in the last minutes of the fourth quarter netted the only score of the game. The rough going started after that, how- ever, when the Mt. Lebanon Blue Devils drop- ped Ken Hi from the Double A race by defeat- ing them, 26-13. It was a hard fought battle, but the Mountie's jinx stuck for the third suc- cessive year. The Red and Black ran into a strong eleven at Har-Brack and were beaten to the tune of 20 to 7. The score at half-time was 7 to 7, but the Green and White ran away with the game in the second half. In their next encounter, the Kenmen bat- tled to a 0 to 0 tie with North Catholic. Both teams exchanged touchdown threats in the first half. The second half was played in a steady down-pour that turned the field into a sea of mud. Monongahela's Wildcats downed Ken Hi in a close game, 7-0. Bob Rawslci and Henry Falcon played bang-up ball for the Kenmen. The Red and Black hit the winning trail again, easily downing Bell Township, 32-6. The second string played most of the game. Mike Michael scored three of Ken I-liis six touch- downs. 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- down. 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, 7 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.

Pack, A. Barker BASKETBALL 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 second. 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 season. S9 BASKETB LL J 1 .1 ' J , JAYVEES Row One: D. Allison, J. Lavick, S. Toney, T. Ciancutti. J. Doyle, W. Cartwright, W.

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. -Russell Shalkoski 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- forms. 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. Captain J. O. Black Lieutenant S. E. Gantz Lieutenant H.

Wolfe DIARY 1944-1945 September 21, 1944 Dear Diary, 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 Dear Diary, 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 Dear Diary, 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 Dear Diary, 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 Dear Diary, 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 Dear Diary, 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- ments. March 9, 1945 Dear Diary, 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 Dear Diary, 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 Dear Diary, 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 mean. April 24, 1945 Dear Diary, 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 Dear Diary, 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 Dear Diary, 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 all evening. May 27, 1945 Dear Diary, 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 Dear Diary, 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. This Boolt is Bound DRUG STORES KINGSKRAFT Famous for Low Prices New Kensington, Pa.
