Education today is centered around
the well-equipped school building. This
facilitated school has been on our minds
for quite a long time and at last this
dream has become a magnificent reality.
An ultra-modern school has been com-
pleted and now we, the teachers and stu-
dents of North Huntingdon, have much
more ease and convenience connected with
our process of teaching and learning than
the generations before us. We earnestly
believe that these modern surroundings
and facilities will help us tremendously
to achieve the nine objectives of educa-
tion: home, other people, citizenship,
appreciation, science, work, leisure, thrift,
and health. In this new North Huntingdon
High School of educational wonders we
are learning to live better today in order
that we may live a more useful and hap-
pier life tomorrow.

Mr. Carl C. Pearsall
The experience and good judgment of Mr. Carl C.
Pearsall, our Superintendent of Schools, has helped
to make North Huntingdon outstanding. He realizes
that education is a determining factor in the pre-
serving of our democracy and that modern equip-
ment and facilities make this education complete.
As secretary, Miss Dorothy Davis won many friends
with her congenial smile and willingness to help.
Her efficiency kept the important duties of the office
running smoothly. Miss Davis is a graduate of the
University of Pittsburgh and finds many pleasure-
ahlc moments in reading.
Mr. Ellsworth Schwartz
With Mr. Ellsworth D. Schwartz as our principal.
the activities and curriculum of North Huntingdon
have been carried on with a multitude of efficiency.
The mutual understanding between him and the
students leaves little to be desired concerning the
behavior and welfare of the student body,
Mrs. Mary Shepler, secretary of the North Hunting-
don Township school district, has proved invaluable
in carrying out her duties. She attended Grove City
and California State Teacher's Colleges. Mrs. Shep-
ler spends her spare moments gardening when the
weather is permissible.

Celebrating their first year as upper-
classmen, the juniors selected as their class
officers, George Ward, president, Rudy
Moretton, vice-president, Joan Novak, sec-
retary, and Calvin Gongaware, treasurer.
Under the supervision of Mrs. Alice Kelly
and Miss Margaret Ponitz, they assumed
numerous duties. Many juniors occupied
positions on the Hi-Lites and Norhiscope
Staffs. The girl's volleyball championship
was won by a junior homeroom. Several
junior boys proved successful by playing
on the football, basketball, and baseball
There was much excitement in the
early part of the 1950-51 term, when the
Junior class chose their class rings. As
other classes, these juniors feel that there
could be no nicer ring.
The most outstanding event of the
year was the annual Junior-Senior Prom
held in May. As usual, making this a dance
to remember is the motto of every Junior
class. Funds were raised by selling blue
and gold basketball pins, and by having
several socials throughout the year.
Having arrived at this point of high
school the class of "52" feel as though they
can continue to reach their main goal. This
will be the first graduating class to com-
plete a full year at the modern North Hunt-
ingdon High School.

Fletcher, secretary, and Grace Janiro,

Many of these energetic sophomores
offered much talent to the sports schedule
of North Huntingdon. With Howard Leuk-

The sunny days of September 1950
will long be remembered by the class of
1954 for these were the first days it spent
at North Huntingdon High School. Early
in the first semester under the super-
vision of Mr. Robert Wray, they selected
as their class officers Margaret Hager,
presidentg Jack Sherbondy, vice-presi-
dentg Mary Ann Claar, secretary, Joanne
Maystrovich, treasurer. The members
chosen to represent their class in the
Student Council were Mary Kober, Bar-
bara Dubosky, Lanny Confer, Joan Pan-
zyk, Geraldine Wallace along with Jo-
anne Maystrovich and Margaret Hager.
Throughout the year, they followed
in the footsteps of the upper-classmen.
Many showed their talent by participat-
ing in school activities such as Forensic,
Hi-Lites Staff, Band, Student Council,
football and basketball junior varsity
teams and various other school organ-
Now that their first year has ended,
they hope to continue participating in
sports and in organizations during the
three years to come. Knowing they will
succeed in whatever they try, we wish
them luck and happiness ahead at a
modern and thoroughly equipped North

Striving to maintain the high stand-
ards which were set by last year's Norh-
iscope, much planning and consideration
was given to the 1951 yearbook. For last
years commendable work the Norhiscope
achieved the Medalist Award. This year's
newly appointed adviser, Mr. William
Couchenour, worked diligently to help make
the Norhiscope a success.
Under the leadership of the co-editors,
Georgette Carosso and Franklin Chadima,
with the assistance of the staff members,
the Norhiscope is published to convey mem-
ories of student life to every boy and girl
attending North Huntingdon.
Serving as the literary editors of the
yearbook were Anna Shoenenbroich, Jeanne
Viecelli, and Patricia Filkosky. Each show-
ed their eagerness and capability with the
cooperation of Joan Novak, Jean Beter, and
Nancy Whitcraft, their assistants. Often
they were seen hurriedly gathering last
minute bits of work. Chosen to handle the
art work, Jean Lagalski and Judy Lauffer
proved their talent time and time again.
Shirley Lewis and Tom Molsky, photog-
raphy editors, ably supervised all pictures
which were taken throughout the year for
the Norhiscope. Covering boys' s p o r t s
events was Stanley Rackley, while Jac-
P. Ftlkosky, Vtecellt, Beter, Carson,
Whttcraft and N ovak, literary editors.
queline Carson efficiently took care of girls'
sports. To improve the financial standing
of the Norhiscope, Janet Kleckner and
George Krick, business managers, spent
much time and effort soliciting ads.
Many profitable projects were under-
taken and dances sponsored by the staff
as a means of raising funds. Monogram-
ed T-shirts, sweat shirts, and white silk
headscarfs sold by the yearbook could be
seen adorned by many of the students.
In order to better prepare themselves
for their responsibilities the editors attend-
ed the Pennsylvania Scholastic Press Asso-
ciation Conference in November. The con-
ference which took place for two days was
held in Allentown. Returning with many
new ideas in yearbook make-up, the trip
proved worth-while in helping to plan and
edit one of the finest Norhiscopes ever pro-
duced at North Huntingdon.
Also a successful bake sale was held
at Sam Sandson's Market to financially
support the Norhiscope. The senior mem-
bers of the staff showed their dramatic
ability by presenting a two-act, slapstick
comedy for the students at an assembly.
The play entitled "Fun in a Chinese Laun-
dry" developed into fun for both the
participants and the audience.

Published current school events for students
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! These
were the words shouted by all Hi-Lites
salesmen at the beginning of the school
term. The staff had good reason to shout.
They were selling a paper which printed
the latest news. Past and coming events
which occurred throughout the year were
printed in the thirteen big issues.
After much persuasion Elaine Roth,
the reliable editor-in-chief, finally convinc-
ed the reporters to work and stay "on the
beam". Serving as assistant editor, Nellie
Eichelberger aided Elaine in planning the
make-up of the paper and in writing head-
This year, Mrs. Marian Daily, the co-
operative adviser, chose a board of editors
consisting of Delores Miller, Janet Kleck-
ner, Norma Jean Neri, Jackie Carson, Pa-
tricia Filkosky, and Anna Shoenenbroich.
Setting the bi-weekly together was the suc-
cessful accomplishment of this group.
Always nearby to type the issues were
Naomi Rain, Bettie Mae Yost, and Florian
Blotzer. Without their assistance the paper
never would have been sent to Braddock
for publication. Ellen Whitlach, the editor
who had the funny bone for the feature
page, encouraged her feature staff to write
original stories and poems. Under Ellen's
direction the staff produced to the best of
The day the paper arrived everyone
dashed to see who were the heroes of the
previous sports events. Preparing the
sports page was the responsibility of Joe
Handling the business end of the pa-
per, Dale Kober proved his ability as an
efficient business manager. Many ads were
sold by the advertising managers, Dave
Eberhart and Don Creighton, by thorough-
ly canvassing the community.
Don Wollam, circulation manager, sort-
ed papers for the salesmen to distribute in
the home rooms. A student who handled
the exchanges from north to south and
east to west was Myrna Good.
The most outstanding event of the
year was attending the Pennsylvania
Scholastic Press Association Conference
held in Central Catholic High School in
Allentown. Six staff members along with
Mrs. Daily spent two days hearing lectures
and going to classes. To enable the stu-
dents to become better acquainted with
publishing newspapers was the main pur-
pose of the convention.
Secrets of the past year, such as the
king and queen of the Hop, and other im-
portant announcements were revealed by
the Hi-Lites. The paper was also respon-
sible for the handling of votes for principal
and secretary for a day.
Sponsored by the Hi-Lites were sev-
eral successful attractions. Students who
proved their honesty by doing a good deed
had the honor of being reported as a good
citizen. A special feature was the short
story contest. Of those submitted, the best
appeared on the feature page. An addition-
al section of the Hi-Lites was edited for
the dedication of the new building. Pic-
tures taken throughout the new high
schoool were printed in an extra roto sec-

Not one, not two, not three, but twen-
ty-five energetic majorettes twirling silver
batons appeared in white, turtle neck
sweaters with navy blue skirts. These
girls faithfully attended all football games
and several parades with beaming faces
even though the weather was sometimes
to their disliking. Excellently this smiling
group displayed many a performance
worth remembering. Neatly attired in
their bright uniforms the majorettes pre-
sented a splendid appearance.
Headed by Doris Bergman, junior,
the majorettes learned numerous steps to
arrangements of popular songs. Other
capable leaders were Jeanne Viecelli and
Nancy Caldwell, seniors, and Dolly Orsino,
junior. Each contributed to the success
and accomplishments of the group.

Sketching the wonders of nature was one of the many ac-
tivities undertaken by the Art Club this past school term. When
the weather was favorable, the meetings were conducted out-
doors, and the members were given a scene to draw. They sat
on the campus and put forth the best of their ability on the
paper provided. Mrs. Helen Hadley was always present to give
assistance and reliable advice.
Seeking to improve his artistic ability, each member took
special interest in the club's projects. New phases and ideas of
art were introduced to them. A composition in charcoal was
discovered by the members as an amazing media with which
they could obtain varied results. Shading with charcoal, al-
though more difficult than with pencil, proved to produce an
entirely different effect.
Painting figurines seemed to arouse much interest. First of
all the figure must be sanded so as to present a smooth appear-
ance. Applying a base of white enamel was the next essential
step. Carefully painting them with brightly tinted enamels
completed a tedious but worth-while task.
Under the enthusiastic leadership of Judy Lauffer, presi-
dentg with Joseph Dalesandro, vice presidentg and .lean Lagal-
ski, secretary-treasurer assisting her, the Art Club has exper-
ienced one of its most eventful years. The members agree that
they have gained a greater knowledge and appreciation of art.

As the Christmas season approached, it brought with it the
most awaited event of the year, the annual Christmas Hop.
Sponsored for the first time by the senior class on December 22,
the Hop was furnished with music by Maurice Spitalny and his
orchestra. Mr. Spitalny comes from a family of famous musicians.
Featured at the intermission of the dance was the coronation
of the queen, Jean Lagalski, and the king, Charles Ponitz. Making
up their court were Norma Jean Neri, Ray Rice, Jackie Carson,
and Franklin Chadima.
The theme for the Hop was "White Christmas." An all white
ceiling with shining stars covering the sides of the gym contrib-
uted to the effect of the theme. Around the bandstand were silver
Christmas trees highlighted by the blue spotlights. At the end of
the gym a huge realistic fireplace was constructed.
Added to this year's coronation of the king and queen was
a special attraction. The elected queens and kings of the past four
years were invited to take part in the ceremony. Leading the
procession were the previous queens and kings followed by this
year's king and queen. The crowns were passed to each king and
queen finally being handed to Bill Noble and Lois Horten, last
year's king and queen. They then proceeded to crown Jean
Lagalski and Charles Ponitz.

Exhibited superior courage and developed good sportsmanship
Although losing eight of their nine
games this season, the Bulldogs led by
Kassian Kavalcheck and Roy Seibert, dis-
played unusual lighting spirit and skill.
Overshadowing the numerous setbacks was
the display of good sportsmanship and
In opening the 1950 season, a deter-
mined squad traveled to Wilmerding. Our
opponents, displaying a powerful and
under-rated eleven, surprised all by up-
setting Huntingdon 28-12.
The first Class A opponent brought
the Ford City Glassers to Shaw Field. After
sixty minutes of bruising play, the visiting
team accounted for thirteen points, while
the home team mustered only twelve for a
In an exhibition tilt Jefferson Town-
ship's heavy grid machine handed the Blue
and Gold contingent their third setback
28-6. Injuries coming at inopportune times
were disastrous to the Bulldogs. Unable to
start a consistent offense at West Deer
Township the following week, the Kaval-
checkmen suffered an 18-13 surprise in the
last minutes of play.
Managers Wall, Boggs, Robertson,
and Plues on the job.
Playing their best. game of the year,
North Huntingdon outscored the Kittan-
ning Kittens 14-6 in a Friday night thriller
on Shaw Field. Even though outweighed
the Bulldogs couldn't be stopped.
A visit to Jeannette proved disastrous,
Huntingdon went down to defeat before a
dazzling display of power and deception.
Surprisingly, the Bulldogs marched the
opening kickoff for a touchdown to com-
mand a 7-0 lead. Hindered by lack of size
the outmanned Blue and Gold succumbed
The following week the Scarlet Hurri-
canes of Hurst dealt the home eleven a 14-
12 defeat in a well-played defensive con-
test. A fourth quarter rally proved to be
the deciding factor. The tides of fortunes
remained unchanged when Blairsville en-
tertained North Huntingdon. The home
team won the tussle 39-0 on a rain-soaked
In the final contest of the season, the
Golden Eagles of Derry Township remained
undefeated in Class A competition by hand-
ing the under-estimated locals a 33-20 set-
back. A second half rally again proved the
undoing of the Bulldogs.

The North Huntingdon .Iayvee football
team was directed this campaign by co-
coaches, Dr. Don Rose and Mr. James Jenets.
In the initial contest the Bullpups
humbled the Trafford eleven 19-0. In a
return game at North Huntingdon the locals
were held scoreless the first half, but Traf-
ford faltered in the late minutes of the
contest. The heavier Jeannette Jayhawks
overpowered the Bullpups 31-6 to snap the
two-game winning streak. At Harrold a hard
driving and under-estimated eleven, upset
the juniors 19-0. The Jayvee gridders ended
the season by winning over a strong Sewick-
ley aggregation 13-12, and 14-0 in the finale.
If determination, courage, and spirit
develop a good team, next year's varsity will
attain a good record.

Favorable Season of
Completing a successful basketball sea-
son, the Bulldog cagers, coached by Mr.
Donald Rose, compiled a favorable record
of 12 wins against 11 setbacks.
The present hardwood campaign con-
sisted of ten non-league encounters, twelve
Section XI games, and one contest in the
annual Westmoreland County Tournament.
North Huntingdon started the exhibition
schedule with two impressive victories
before losing decisively to the powerful
Monessen Greyhounds. The Blue and Gold
cagers completed the warm-up tilts with
triumphs over Trafford and California, while
dropping encounters to Mt. Pleasant and
The local cagers started slowly in
league competion with losses to Greensburg
and Derry Twp., a "dark horse" in the sec-
tion. The Bulldogs rebounded with four
consecutive victories, three over sectional
rivals, Scottdale, Hurst, and Latrobe. In the
big annual home contest with Jeannette, the
locals were routed.
In the second round of Section play the
Bulldogs duplicated their first round begin-
ning by losing to Greensburg and Derry
Twp. North Huntingdon retained a good
league standing with triumphs over Scott-
dale, Hurst and Latrobe. The final tilt at
Jeannette was spirited and close throughout,
but the Jayhawks emerged victorious 46
The section was dominated by Greens-
burg, league winner, and Jeannette. The re-
maining teams were closely grouped, with
North Huntingdon finished third.
North Huntingdon faced a very trying
exhibition schedule. In the warm-up games
the Bulldogs met two section champions at
the beginning of the season. They were
Preparing for a game
Wilmerding, Class B and Section XVIII
champs and Monessen, Class A and Section
VIII winners. North Huntingdon won the
Wilmerding contest and in turn were de-
feated by Monessen, W.P.I.A.L. runnerups,
in the exhibition encounters.
Honoring the outstanding members of
the teams, the coaches of Westmoreland
County voted Bob Parry second string guard
on the All Section Team, and second string
guard on the All County Team. Senior Cap-
tain, Jack Dubosky, received honorable men-
tion on the All Section Team.
The other seniors on this fine team were
Ray Rice and Bill Sherbondy. A good nucleus
of the squad will be available for the next
season. Parry, a junior, and Howard Leuk-
ardt, a sophomore, gave a good account of
themselves in every contest in which they
participated. Also returning for next year's
competition are Calvin Gongaware and Jerry
Richardson, both of whom saw action in
many games. Grouped with these boys will
be some fine prospects from the Jayvee
squad. Much was accomplished by the coach-
ing staff this season. Coach Rose is to be
congratulated for the display of aggressive-
ness and skilled maneuvering of the team.

North Huntingdon completed their sec-
ond season in the Junior High League of
Westmoreland County. The North Hunting-
don Juniors, under the leadership of Mr.
James Jenets ended league competition with
five victories and five defeats.
The Bullpuppies were hampered consid-
erably by lack of experience at the beginning
of the season. This handicap was overcome
at the climax of the season when they upset
a strong New Stanton team and won over
their local rival, North Irwin.
Mike Doshen and Regis Filtz led the
juniors' scoring attack and were capably
assisted by Ray Dudura, Albert Dick, James
Hunt and Larry Kifer. North Huntingdon
can look forward to good basketball seasons
with material from teams such as this one.
The North Huntingdon Jayvees, in-
structed by Roy Seibert, had a successful
season with thirteen wins and eight set-
backs. They succeeded in winning over
Derry Twp. and Hurst twice, while scoring
single victories over Derry Boro, Wilmer-
ding, Trafford, California, Youngwood, East
McKeesport, Greensburg, Scottdale and
The Bullpups consisted of players from
the freshmen, sophomore, and junior classes
who played with the purpose of gaining val-
uable experience for future varsity teams.
The experience gained by playing on the
Bullpup squad should prove valuable to the
players graduating to the varsity.
Such players as high scoring Jack Sher-
bondy, Bill Miller, Milton Plank and Captain
Charles Frye would indicate an improvement
in basketball in the near future at North

Huntingdon sports scene this past year.

Vigorously united fun with play in keen competition
Thrills and spills seemed to be the
theme of the girls' sports program this
year. Although good sportsmanship and
clean play were held high throughout all
games, many hard fought, close games
were battled out before a single team

leyball championship after a closely
fought game with senior homeroom 305.
Many teams turned out for basketball
proving its popularity among the girls.
Ping-pong progressed steadily, slowly
eliminating the long list of contestants
until finally the championship game be-
tween Corrine Whitehead, a senior and
Barbara Bergad, a sophomore was played,

Badminton came into its own when
singles were played between the girls.
Many had aching muscles, bruises
and lumps but always wore a triumphant
smile after mastering that elusive head-
stand or difficult fish-flop. Tumbling
classes were ably supervised by experi-
enced and talented Jean Viecelli and her
assistants Dorothy Bishop, Mary Ruth
Rees, and Betty Lauffer. Archery was
successfully completed after a long ab-
sence from the scene due to bad weather.

The Lettermen's Club composed of out-
standing athletes who were awarded the
coveted "H" concluded a very successful
year. Gathering together early in the term
to plan their activities, the boys selected
Jack Dubosky, presidentg Tom Molsky, vice
presidentg Dale Kober, secretary, and Ray
Rice, treasurer. Mr. Kass Kovalcheck capa-
bly supervised as faculty adviser. Meetings
were held every Thursday evening after
which followed a recreation period in the
gym. Among the many activities planned,
the members enjoyed a swimming party at
the Y.M.C.A. at Greensburg.
During a banquet held by the Booster's
Club in the cafeteria, eight senior football
and basketball players were presented with
blue and gold reversible jackets. They were

theme of this formal affair was Neptune's
Gardens and the gym was appropriately
transformed into an underwater scheme.
Brightly colored fish and mermaids were all
about and old King Neptune himself, was
there. The orchestra under the direction of
Jimmy Gamble, furnished very smooth
music. The Ball was enjoyed tremendously
and proved to be a great success.
Thrills, excitement, and keen competi-
tion were recognized in the boys' intramural
program. Capably guided by Mr. John Brace
with the assistance of Ronald Sekerka and
Dale McWilliams, this program provided an
excellent outlet for vim and vigor. Although
competition was tough, seniors of Room 301
proved to be all-around champions. They not
only showed their superiority over rival
football contenders, but were also leaders of
basketball. Due to short lunch periods, soft-
ball games were not played. However, there
were tournaments in archery, horseshoes,
ping pong, and volleyball. In all these sports
physical fitness and good sportsmanship
were emphasized at all times.
