GNEW KENSINGTON HIGH SCHOOL S E N I O R C L A S S NEW KENSINGTON, PENNSYLVANIA My AYIIY- ' III!- 'auii v av ins- Jai X7 5 QV in . dfff QWF' At the pealc of Indian Summer, 1946, the doors of Ken Hi swung open once again to the stream of students, reluctantly return- ing from the carefree Summer days. Con- fused and bewildered, the new students anxiously sought their classrooms. The long line outside Mr. Weaver's office revealed the annual mix-up in schedules. When order again reigned over disorder, and students were finally seated in classrooms, many new faces in teachers and students were discov- ered. Ken l-li's many organizations initiated their quota and settled down to the year's activities. Politically-minded students began campaigning for class offices. Picture time came and students stood in long lines wait- ing their turn before the camera. Not once, but twice, because of camera defects. Care- fully attired seniors' designated the week of senior pictures. Football season was ushered in with lusty cheer practices. Newly garbed in smart uniforms, our band and corps of majorettes made their debut. The season was climaxed by the winning of the WPIAL. The successful play, "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthuris Courtf, and the Harvest Ball were this season,s outstanding social events. Um 5 7a june With an onslaught of basketball and name cards, Winter came to Ken Hi. College Club tests were taken. The Yuletide season was welcomed to Ken I-ii by the Christmas tree at the Trophy Case. The Christmas assembly was high lighted by the collapsing of the bleachers. After vacation, Wfinter winds chilled the glove- less hands of seniors as they sported their class rings. The Winter was brought to a climax by the Valentine Dance of the Tri-Hi-Y and the Shamrock Ball. Spring fever held the students with a magnetic force. This season brought baseball and track to Ken I-Ii. The Senior Class play, "Stage Door," chalked up another dramatic success for the year. Spring is best known, however, as the season of social events. The Sophomore Hop began the whirl of dances. The whirl continued with the Senior Private and the National Honor Society Dance, both farewell parties to the seniors. Red ribbons and black ties signifiy Class Day when the seniors bade farewell and welcomed the seniors of next year with the presentation of the lantern. Taleoken Day was the last day for the seniors and, as always, the halls were full of seniors getting autographs and promising to write and keep in touch with one another. The Prom was, of course, the highlight of the entire year when the juniors and seniors blossomed forth in formals and danced gayly to the music of Nino Lent and I-lis Collegiate Orchestra in the decorated gym. With Baccalaureate and Commencement the year was ended. Summer would come soon, the one season Ken Hi would not re-echo the noise of students in the halls. With the return of Fall, however, another round of seasons will start, one more in the history of our school. -f ,- ,xy 1-7,1-,IJ ,f w , x,1 ..,Q f,,m- 'Q ,'.V.a1:w,.L-wi.. .af .,i,L1.,14 ., Mu.. 1 ,Q .fp1.-.,.4:u',,,-1 M..

T e Board oi Education Through our twelve years of school, we have been guided by a group of men not too well known to the majority of students. These men are the members of the Board of Education, chosen by the voters as their representatives. Quietly and adeptly these men have handled all the problems and crises arising in the New Kensington schools. They have made possible the efficient system of our schools and created for them an impressive record of accomplishments. They have taken an interest in our athletic and social affairsg they have cheered our victories and mourned our defeats. As we, the class of 1947, prepare to leave New Kensington High School for the last time, we wish to express our gratitude to the men of the Board of Education for their interest, guidance, and above all, for their friendliness to us in our school live. The members of the board are Mr. H. V. Churchill, president, Mr. Cecil Fisher, vice-president, Mr. H. L. Wolf, treasurer, Mr. E. H. Blackburn, Mr. A. F. Daughenbaugh, Mr. Howard Stewart, and Mr. Charles Vaughn. Miss Veronica Mazur is secretary and Mr. Frank McKean, solicitor. Dr. E. T. Chapman is superintendent' of schools. S-4 Swpeainllencfunl Greetings to the Class of 1947: You are about to enter the Post War World. It is a world of considerable chaos and confusion. Your High School Education should give you an awareness of the problems America faces. Winning the war has not yet meant winning the peace. We must carry on the fight for Liberty, Freedom and Democracy. We must tackle our problems with new vigor. When Albert Einstein was asked how he discovered the Theory of Relativity he replied, "I challenged an axiomf, Do not shrink from the problems that will face you. Attack them courageously, fearlessly, and you will find pleasure in the doing. F. T. CHAPMAN To the Seniors: For real company and friendship, this 1947 TALEOKEN will be a constant reminder of your happy days here at KEN HI. It has a life, a character, and a story of its own and it is filled with good fellowship. You'll find those forgotten names, her picture, an event,-yes, all those things that meant so much to you this year. You will come back to this book many times and you will always find an old friend unchanged. I hope the pictures and stories of Ken Hi will be an inspiration to keep you growing in your success in the years to come. H. B.

The junior high football squad takes time out at a practice session to enjoy being photographed. Dr. Chapmanls office staff, Mary Jane Kurtz, Veronica Mazur, and Lydia Manning, seem happy about th-eir work. Howard Kress has become really profi- cient with the camera and is a familiar figure in Ken l-li's halls and classrooms. Pole vaulting seems -easy for Charlie Latek as he goes over the bar. Chuck Best looks as if he is going to use that pumpkin as a basketball. "Smile just a little moref, says Mr. Colao to the seniors. The Band is all sprucfed up for action. Norma Graff, Donna Veitch, Erla Weaver, and Peggy Rice, officers of the Home Ec Club, pose for a picture. The girls must be enjoying the Com- mercial Club dinner, especially Leila Pfeiffer. In 401 the students work diligently for 45 minutes sans talking. The Kentonian Staff seems to be having trouble as they line up for a club picture. I9 4mhmen First Row, left: R. Ahraham, B.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY Membership in the National Honor Society is the greatest scholastic honor in New Kensington High School. Although scholarship is the foremost requirement for eligibility, character, leadership, and service are also important requisites. As its name implies this group is part of a nation-wide organization of top ranking high school seniors. Senior section room teachers, Mr. Weaver, and Miss Boucher constitute the faculty council which elects the members. Awards are made at Com- mencement to the best boy citizen and the best girl citizen in the senior class. The club,s sponsor is Miss Hawk and the treasurer, Miss Walker. The officers for the first semester were Diego Rodriguez, presidentg Walter Bretthauer, vice-president, and Marilyn Davis, secretary. The second semester James Shields served as presi- dentg Gilbert Ashor, vice presiclentg and Joan Wyant, secretary. Z4 -Q. BOARD OF ACTIVITIES Une of the highest honors which can come to any student as a result of election by his classmates is that of membership on the Board of Activities. Problems deal- ing with extra-curricular activities are discussed and acted upon. On October 25 and 26, Mr. Vorlage and several members attended the convention of the Pennsylvania Association of Student Participation in School Government. First Row: W. Yee. P. Voyten, A.

Their responsibilities are attending to student affairs such as dances, assemblies, and sports events. Regular meetings are held to plan for these coming events. They also sponsor the Vocational basketball squad. These students and their sponsor give much time and thought to school problems. 7 HANDBOOK STAFF A guide book given to each student at the beginning of each year, the Hand- book contains information from "scholarships" to "how to become a cheer-leaderf' as well as the cheers and songs of our school. During April and May, Miss Owen and Miss Armstrong, the sponsors, choose a staff of students and the work of assembling material for next year,s handbook begins. First Row: N. Foulkrod. G. Smith, S. Wilson. Second Row: W. Bretthauer, C. David, Miss Owen, D. Smith, C. Best, J. Evans. First Row: S. Wilson, N. A. Thomas, L. Balch, D. Kantorski, P. Green. Second Row: H. Lanclowski, J. Turner, J. Stalder, Mr. Vorlage, R. Castro, C. Bickerl, M. Kapp. BANK STAFF An activity involving great responsibility is membership on the Bank Staff. These persons are chosen by the cashier, Mr. Vorlage, because of their reliability and ability to handle money and accounts and to keep books. Through this bank all financial transactions are effected. Each class, section room, or organization which has a treasury has an account in the Students Bank. 26- 1 THE ASSEMBLY STAFF These boys are the most appreciated group in the school, for their presence means an enjoyable period of movies. In charge of all the motion picture and audio- visual equipment, these boys have proven to be expert in the management of their equipment. The officers of this non-social club are president, George Smithg vice- president, l-loward Kressg secretary, Al Nemyg and treasurer, Diego Rodriguez. Mr. W. L. Jefferson is the adviser of this club.

MONITORS One of the most active clubs in the school is the Monitors, sponsored by lVlr. Mooney. The duties of its members are to supervise traffic in the halls and help lceep confusion down to a minimum during the changing of classes. They also assist the students during fire drills and take section rooms to their places at assemblies. The officers are president, George Smith, vice-president, Diego Rodriguez, and secre- tary-trcasurcr, Elmer Stevens. 17 gan! Under the very capable tutelage of Mr. Oliver, Ken I-li's band rose to greater heights this year than ever achieved before. After two weeks spent at camp in Meyersdale, the band returned and axiously waited for the seasonal sports to open so that they could go to work. Attired in snappy red and white uniforms, the band put on admirable performances at each game. The band steadily increased until finally Mr. Oliver had seventy-eight members in his group. Every day in the sixth period, strains of martial music floated through the halls, usually enticing a few students to stop working and listen. In the spring and fall, they go outdoors and practice marching down Ridge Avenue. This year, the band participated in the All-Western Band with a total of eight representatives and in the Allegheny Valley Band Festival which gave a series of four concerts. Bob Armstrong, a sophomore who plays the trumpet, was the only member to participate in the All-Stare band which met in Lebanon, Pa., on March 12, 13, 14, 15. 28 Ma' No high school band is complete without its majorettes and Ken Hi is no exception in this respect. These two groups have worked in complete harmony to bring additional fame to Ken Hi. Football games and basketball games would not be nearly so colorful without the Band and Majorettes. Led onto the field by Nellie Mae Johnson, Betty Lee Fox, and Kathryn Janibagian, the majorettes made a delightful panorama each time they performed. This group of thirty-nine girls was newly organized last spring by the leader, Mr. Oliver. All summer long, they worked steadily and diligently to achieve the perfection that was displayed during each of their performances this year. They, too, spent two weeks up at camp where they practiced each day with the band. Beverly Salvatore, a little fourth grader, acted as the mascot. She made a spectacular figure on the field when she executed difficult maneuvers. Ar the basketball games, the majorettes danced at the halfg each time they did something unusual and different, making the entertainment exciting. 29 N. Foulkrod, J. Evans, G. Henry, H. Greer, C. Kaufman, N. Baumiller, N. Hotfman, D. Smith. The cheerleaders of 1946-1947 deserve the praise and admiration of the entire student body. In the summer of 1946 under the supervision of Mr. Oliver they accompanied the band to camp for a week. In their snappy red skirts and white sweaters the squad of eight began the season with several new cheers. The climax of the successful football season was the thrill of cheering in Forbes Field before seventeen thousand people. After the big football season they "cheered for the basketball team,', attending every game. In January they held a general dance for the high school students. Their expert cheering is the result of many long hours of practice under the eye of their peppy head-Diane Smith. They received rousing support at the welcome pep rallies. They are under the supervision of Miss Pascaretta. 30 - 0 p Quadra W. L. Jefferson, J. A. Gibson, D. Fletcher. K. W. Slosky, T. A. Dunn. W. L. JEFFERSON Mr. Jefferson is in charge of all the athletic equipment used in the sports program at Ken Hi. This is a difficult job, for it is one that must be worked on the whole year. J. A. GIBSON Mr. Gibson is assistant football coach and head basketball coach. His team took second place in league play. Mr. Gibson also teaches physical education. D. FLETCHER Mr. Fletcher, head coach of the football team, has finished a very successful season. His boys won the W. P. I. A. L. crown and went through the season undefeated. K. W. SLOSKY Mr. Slosky is assistant football coach and coaches Junior Varsity. His team has just completed a very successful season and is undefeated. T. A. DUNN Mr. Dunn coaches the Parnassus Junior High School basketball team and also coaches baseball. Mr. Dunn's squads have furnished much of the material for the Varsity teams when they come to Ken Hi. 31 46-alia!! First Row: C. Moses, W. Riesen, H. DeFelice, A. Ofiesh, I. Moyes, H. Stroud, L.

L. championship. One evening we were in fifth place but before midnight the next day we found our- selves the champions, when, contrary to all predictions and expectations, Ellwood City defeated Ambriclge and Redstone defeated Duquesne. Thus Ken Hi, by the point system, emerged on top. The road to this title was long and hard but the team started with a bang by defeating Beaver Falls and continued with that same spirit through the entire league season to the last game when they smashed the much- heralded Vandergrift machine 21-0 at Forbes Field before a crowd of 18,000 fans. The team and their coach, Mr. Fletcher, and his assistants, Mr. Gibson, Mr. Slosky, and Mr. Jefferson will long be remembered in Ken Hi. The assembly at which Mr. Ballentine, in behalf of the W. P. I. A. L., presented the trophy was indeed a memorable occasion. 32 Ciancutti H. Vestrand W. Thrower H. Tamburo Feroce W. Horrell J. Klein T. Kotowski France George Greene 33 R. R. V J. R.

Miss Emogene Whitacre, the most capable choir leader, has produced quality and quantity from her well-organized group. Many public appearances are made each year, including the radio programs, with the Spring Festival as a finale. R. McLaughlin, J. Wiles, D. Buckner, R. Pyle, E. Milligram, First Row: G. Myers, N. M.

SCRIPT AND SCORE The Script and Score was organized in 1945 for students possessing musical and dramatic tal- ent and has grown by leaps and bounds under the direction of Miss Whitacre. The club affords an excellent opportunity for combining these two forms of art when the members present an opera or an operetta. The club members attended a professional opera performance in Pittsburgh in 1946. 52 ATTENDANCE STAFF The Attendance Staff is a group of girls from the sophomore, junior, and senior classes who work in the Dean of Girls' office during their study halls. They list the absentees, check attendance, assist the dean in the clerical work, and gener- ally malce themselves useful. The group is not a social one and the girls are to be commended for their excellent service. First Row: P. Werner. J. Vairo, C. Davis, R. Whalen. Second Row: D. Chambers, G. Henry, Miss Boucher, P.

ORCHESTRA Under the excellent leadership of Mr. Frank Oliver, the Ken Hi orchestra has become very well trained. In the case of the orchestra it is not so much the number of members as it is the musicianship of each member. The violins blend in with the other instruments to malce sweet-sounding music. Any one who is capable of play- ing any orchestral instrument is eligible to try out for this organization. 53 THE I-II-Y The purpose of the Hi-Y is "To seek, to create, maintain, and extend high standards of Chris- tian character throughout the school and communityf' Every boy at Ken I-li in his senior year, will- ing to accept this purpose, is eligible to join. The club sponsors a dance and decorates Ken Hils Christmas tree each year. Members of the club attended a rally at Blairsville and the Y. M. C. A. annual dinner. First Row: E. Stevens, D. Cappel, W.

Under the capable supervision of Miss Eiges and Mr. Mooney the members are directed in their selection of a college and their courses of study. Tests are given through the year to determine which students will later compete for scholarships. On Career Conference night, March 18, representatives from colleges will be here to talk with seniors and their parents. 54 THE GIRLS' LEADERS CLUB After the familiar initiation, the senior girls chosen as members of the Girls, Leaders Club are prepared to assume the position of assistant to their sponsor, Miss Pascaretta. Each girl assists in one gym class a week if her schedule permits. Dependability and initiative are learned while physi- cal health is aided by the healthful activity. Several social events add to the interest of the club. First Row: R. Walters. J. Bazzano, B. Miller, D. Smith, F. Palumbo, Evans, N. Hoffman, Miss Pascarctla. C. Marral, N. Graff. R. Smith, P.

The initiation in the Fall is remem- bered by those subjected to it. One of Ken Hiis newer clubs, it has not listed as many activities as our other clubsg in the future, however, it will become one of the most active. 55 THE COMMERCIAL CLUB The club, sponsored by Mr. Keiser, is composed of junior and senior commer- cial students. Two meetings are held monthly. At social meetings, held on the third Thursday of the 1'l'1OI1tl'l, Persons Wl'1O are COnf1eCted the business world are invited to explain actual business conditions to the students.

France THE DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION CLUB The Distributive Education Club was organized in 1945, when Mr. Owens, its sponsor, first came to our school. The members of this club are all students of the course bearing the same name and, after having classes in the morning, work in the downtown stores each afternoon. They graduate with full credits from this course and have still gained valuable experience for their future worlc. 56 VOCATIONAL HI-Y The Vocational members of the I-li-Y have been very active in the interest of the school in campaigning on co-operation, clean speech, and honesty not only in school but in everyday life as well. They also participated in a rally at Blairsville. They also have sponsored successfully dances and other events. The members are under the guidance of Mr. Upton. First Row: P. Fraino, M. Kayafas, R.

THE V-NEWS This paper which is published monthly at the vocational building has upheld its record for six years. It has been received through the mail by our servicemen in all parts of the world. This was made possible by the efforts of Mrs. Griesemer and the staff. James Heller has been an excellent editor for three years. Dan Kedzierslci is associate editor. 57 BASKETBALL First Row: C.

Woodard, R. Tarnburo, G. France, W. Carney. Basketball has long been a popular sport at Ken I-Ii and the continued demand for tickets is evidence that N. K. l-l. S. fans still like their basketball. Coach Gibson had a spirited team willing to learn and take directions. The team finished in second place in the section and provided the crowds with many a thrill. Arnold proved to be our only nemesis by defeating us twice. Those games were the most exciting of the season. Ken l-li also participated in the Westmoreland County Tournament at Greensburg and reached the semi-final round but was defeated by Greensburg. Recognition must be given to the Jayvees for their excellent record this year. They completed the 1946-47 season undefeated. Since the Jayvees furnish much of the material for the varsity, next year,s outlook is promising. The Vocational basketball team is made possible by Mr. Black who coaches the team. They have come through many a time with flying colors. The boys are given a try out at the beginning of the season and then Mr. Black has the task of choosing his team. Games are scheduled by the Board of Activities. Much enthusiasm has been displayed by younger players. Coach Armstrong's junior high team came through with an enviable record. Even fifth and sixth graders, under the direction of Mr. Vorlage, have had their teams and have competed with groups within the New Kensington district. The above is an indication of the desire of the athletic director and coaches to make the en- tire athletic program as comprehensive as possible and to include in it an ever increasing number of students. 58 Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken Ken VARSITY SCORES Penn Twp.

The school years have passed quickly. It seems a very short time since our arrival at Ken Hi for our sophomore year. Many of us, of course, were in Ken I-ii for our earlier school years, but the majority came from various schools through- out the district. Slowly prejudices were forgotten and friends were made. The routine of this much larger school was a little frightening at first. Soon, however, we became accustomed to it and felt at home in the crowded halls. Each successive year was crowded with activities and seemed to fly. At last the senior year came. We were the Class of 1947. This year brought even more activities than the others. We had capable officers to see us through this busy year-Fred George, president, William Huffman, vice-president, Dale Evans, secretary, and James Shields, treasurer. Our sponsors, Mr. Mooney, Mrs. Klinlce, and Mr. Kordes guided us skillfully through the maze of Taleolcens, rings, and Commencement announce- ments. The twelve years are almost over and it seems such a short time. The halls we thought so confining now seem surprisingly dear to us. We leave sorrowfully, leaving behind our fun-packed school days. 64 Seniaad DIANA ABRAHAM+Diana wonit forget th-e good old days at P. H. S.

HOME ECONOMICS CLUB The Home Economics Club has been affiliated this year with a national organi- zation called The I-lomemalcers of America. The club is sponsored by Miss Olmer and Miss Stuchell. The members of the club arranged and staged two fashion shows and attended one in Pittsburgh. Mothers of the girls were guests at the fashion show in the high school. 90 D THE VETERANS CLUB The Veterans Club was newly organized at Ken Hi this year. The Club was sponsored by Mr. I-ladden, who was himself a returned veteran. It was organized for the purpose of making those returning to resume their studies feel more at ease in the unfamiliar classrooms and to afford an opportunity for discussion of their problems. Its activities included sports and social functions. First Row: A. Resek, E. Turiak, G. I-leuvel, D. Wagner, R. Wagner, Mr. Hadden. H. Beck, T. Callahan, J. Lamont, P. Redline, A. Guiney.

This year the club presented the play, "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.', Their pin can be worn only by those who earn it. Once a year they journey to Pittsburgh to the Nixon. Informal meetings are held at the homes of the members. Mrs. Klinke is their capable sponsor. 91 l' :N - , 8 1 Down in 105 Marilyn Davis, Frank Detchmendy, Howard Kress, and Arthur Eazer spend long hours rehearsing for the Dramatic Clubis UA Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court."

Baseball, although it doesn,t attract so many spectators, is a favorite on Ken l'ii's athletic program. The team, guided by the able coaching of Mr. Dunn, placed second in our section. The pitching staff was a winning combination and two mem- bers are eligible for the 1947 team as well as several other varsity players. The team showed great spirit and their record is another of which Ken l-li students and graduates may well be proud. Ken Springdale Ken Arnold ...,.

The additional sport is another evidence of Ken Hi,s expanding athletic program and the response on the part of students participating was gratify- ing. In spite of the fact that we won no meets, the team showed spirit and improve- ment uncler Coach ChegWidden's instructions. Dave Allison won the mile race in all meets except the triangular at Greens- burg which Warren Bowser won. Allison defeated the W. P. I. A. L. mile champion by covering the distance in 4:52.5. Tony Kotowslci was high scorer for Ken Hi and also won the broad jump in the first triangular meet.
