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.

Pearsall The experience and good judgment of Mr. Carl C. Pearsall, our Superintendent of Schools, has helped to make North Huntingdon outstanding.

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. ne' ---"1 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. ..-1 NAME . . . Edith Standfest SUBJECT . . .

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 teams. 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.

Led very capably by Miss Saunders, adviser, and Donald Creighton, president, Michael McMahon, vice-president, Joanne Fletcher, secretary, and Grace Janiro, treasurer, the sophomore class ends an- other year successfully. One member from each homeroom was elected to serve on Student Council, Doris Ralph, Evelyn Wright, David Eberhardt, and Eugene Barrett with David Carrera as their representative at large. Many of these energetic sophomores offered much talent to the sports schedule of North Huntingdon. With Howard Leuk- hart giving his all for the Blue and Gold varsity basketball team, it is easy to see why many victories came our way. Howard Row 1. Seybert,R, Sofaly, A, Sistek, M.

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- izations. 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 Huntingdon. Hager, Mr. Wray, Maystrovich, Sherbondy, Claax Row 1.

The business staff consisted of the following students: George Krick, Janet Kleckner, Dale Kober, Mary Cuccaro, Nancy McElroy, Jean Morozowich, Joanne Pezze, Elvira Orsino, Mary Rees, Angeline Rose, Betty Senica, Betty Lauffer, Nancy Patterson, Lillian Plowman, Mae Forsyth, Donna Horten, Shirley Spencer. L. to R.: Molsky Whitlatch, Cramer, Cook, Clair, Lewis fiorlaiwope . . . 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. Photographers A.

Sitting-Miller, Kleckner Standing - Eichelberger, Whitlatch, Roth, Filkosky, Neri, Carson, Jereb 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- lines. 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 their ability. 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 Jere . 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- tion. Whitlach, Eicnelberger, .lereb Mrs. Dailey, Roth Slruulinyp' Eberhardt. Kober. Wollain, Creighton.

Each member did his share in adding an essential quality to the song arrangements and varied routines. Under the direction of Mr. Joseph Men- ham, the band members elected Franklin Cha- dima to guide them as president. While Don Davis managed the band, Libby Troutman served as librarian with Donna Horten to assist her. The most promising students, Dale Kober, Wanda Hughes, Anthony Thiem, Evelyn Wright, Stanley Rackley, Anna Schoenenbro- ich, Franklin Chadima and George Krick were selected to participate in the County Band. Wanda Hughes, Stanley Rackley, and Anna Schoenenbroich were also given the opportun- ity to attend District Band. The annual concert held in the spring proved the musical abilities of the band well developed and worthy of praise. Mamie . . . 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. Chosen to fill the vacancy of drum major was Gene Dunn, a sophomore, who with frequent lessons proved his hidden ability. Countless practices were conducted after school and at noontime. The saying that practice makes perfect was enthu- siastically taken into consideration. Parading before the band, the major- ettes put forth plenty of pep, vim, and vigor into their strutting techniques. Blended with perfect harmony Orsino. Viecelli, Caldwell. Bergman, Dunn L. to R.

At the beginning of the school term it was impossible for the chorus to continue its functions. After the new music room was finished the Chorus practiced with eagerness for their oncoming performances. Proven to the student body during the Easter services was the ability of the Chorus to present a joyous and entertaining cantata. Chosen to sing at the Western Pennsylvania district chorus were Ellen Whitlatch, Anna Schoenenbroich, and Dale Kober. Selected to participate in the county chorus were Bill Shiffler, Ellen Whitlatch, Anna Schoenenbroich, George Krick, Dale Kober, Jeanne Viecelli, Wanda Hughes and Evelyn Wright. The Chorus also displayed their skill at the dedication of the new building and at the graduation exercises completing a suc- cessful year. Row' I P.

Exhibited versatility through many artistic talents R Ex 15 1 X Mrs. Helen Hadley 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. , , ig , s i X . Thomas, Mr. Altman, Dubosky, Rice, Ponitz Iii-11. .. Promoted better comradeship To create, m a i nt a i n, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character was the constant motto of the Hi-Y. The club plan- ned its years work to benefit these two in- stitutions in whatever ways possible. To be- come a member the student must possess qualities of leadership and responsibility and show the right attitude toward his class- mates. Under the capable supervision of their new adviser, Mr. James Altman, the boys selected for their president, Jack Dubosky, who had Charles Ponitz, vice-president, Ray Rice, secretary, and Edward Thomas, treas- urer, to assist him. Going swimming, playing basketball, and having dances were the activities suc- cessfully undertaken during the past school year. Between classes the members showed their excellent spirit by patrolling the halls and keeping the traffic down to a minimum. Careful planning and co-operation among the boys helped to make this year one of the best. I., In R. Row I. Ponitz, Martincheck, Eberhardt, O'Bradovich, Semifero, Jereb, Thiem Row 3.

This worthy organization consisted of juniors and seniors having a high scholastic record and interest in the basic fundamentals of Chris- tian religion. Because of the many worth-While proj- ects undertaken by this group, it was looked upon as an outstanding club by the faculty and student body. To the orphan homes went favors and place mats. Needy families received help with food or money. Daisy Mae, Delores Miller, and Lil Ab- ner, Jack Dubosky had difficulty keeping their identity a secret at the annual Sadie Hawkins Day dance sponsored by the club. Under the capable supervision of Mrs. Edith Standfest and leadership of the offi- cers, Elaine Roth, Jean Lagalski, Eileen Gongaware, Patricia Filkosky, and Jackie Carson the club flourished and grew in character.

All of the many activities proved to be interesting and will enable them to become better homemakers. The sophomores, juniors, and seniors had their separate club and officers. Evelyn Wright, Lucille Raspotnik, Grace Janiro, Pauline Bilott and Shirley Brozack led the sophomores as president, vice-president, sec- retary, treasurer, and reporter respectively. The juniors selected Mae Forsyth, Shirley Spencer, Donna Horten, Lois Hegland, and Sarah Tucker to serve as their officers. Elected to preside over the seniors were Dolores Bellis, Emma Altman, Grace Noel, Ethel Meikle, and Angeline Minervino. ?vrenA1cA . . . Developed poise through debate and dramatics L. to R.

They were convinced that the students were capable of accepting the responsibilities of self-government. Composed of representatives at large from each class a total of twenty-seven members was derived. Undertaken by the Student Council was the great responsibility of adopting an orphan from Italy named Maria Tucciarone. They are to sup- port her for one year through the Foster Parents' Plan for War Children. Chosen to preside as president was Jack Dubosky. Charles Ponitz was elected vice-president, Carol Miller, secretary, and Doris Graybrook, corresponding secretary. Holding dances and several locker inspections were some of the other tasks completed successfully by the council. Under the able guidance of Mr. Bruce Lawson, the members of the Student Council acclaimed respect from the entire student body, faculty and administration by assisting in making school regulations and enforcing them. SiHiny.' Graybrook, Mil- ler, Roth, Ralph, Lagal- Creighton, Novak, May- Thrilling school days with loads of action and activities Many admiring glances were cast as our five cheerleaders, dressed in their snappy new gold and blue uniforms, appeared before the crowd. During football season, be it raining, snowing or bright and sunny, a corps of five girls could be seen ready and waiting eagerly to do their job. Come bas- ketball season they donned their brand new sleeveless blouses and cheered the team to many victories. Even though two seniors, Nellie Eichel- berger and Jackie Carson will graduate this year two more will be chosen to fill their positions. Mae Forsyth, Shirley Hlava, and Lillian Plowman, juniors, will carry on next year. To further promote the growing interest in foreign languages was the motto selected by the L. L. C. For the dedication of the new building the members prepared an exhibition dealing with French, Spanish, and Latin customs and ways of living. For the first time the club has selected the title L. L. C. for its name which stands for Le Linqua Circle. Each word is derived from one of the three languages. With the assistance of Mrs. Jean Wills as adviser the members chose as their presi- dent, vice-president and secretary-treasurer, Pat Filkosky, Evelyn Wright and Agnes Reid respectively.

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.

Overshadowing the numerous setbacks was the display of good sportsmanship and team play. 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 heart-breaking loss. 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 to defeat. 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 field. 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. Coach explains a play. ucceuful Seann for Kal ,zulu . . . 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. JUNIOR VARSITY Row 1. Plank, Mullin, F. Dalesandro, N. Orell, Wright, Acalotto. Row 2.

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 Youngwood. 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 to 41. 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 Latrobe. 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. Baseball became another entry on the Huntingdon sports scene this past year. Coach Bruce Lawson ably led the Bulldogs to a three-way deadlock in section play. In the playoffs the Blue and Gold defeated Penn Township and lost to a strong Greens- burg nine. The North Huntingdon Junior High had a commendable track season. Mr. Seibert's squad displayed exceptional ability in win- ning their only competitive meet with Jean- nette. The linksmen of the gold team were coached by Mr. Kovalcheck.

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 emerged champion. Under the watchful jurisdiction of Mrs. Genevieve Cahoon, coming to us new, and the refereeing and scheduling of games by her competent Leaders' Club the girls' sports program developed to a height. Junior homeroom 33 copped the vol- 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, with Corrine Whitehead as ping-pong champion. 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. sg Q if 5 gvx -Q. 9 . 1' Q Y 'v, fn u EU!

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 Ben Blotzer, Winston Boggs, Bernie Borza, Jack Dubosky, Martin Edwards, Tom Molsky, Duane Reeves, Ray Rice, and Bill Sherbondy. The big event on the social calendar of the Lettermen was the annual Letter- men's Ball which took place April 20. The Karyn' S'p0rtA . . .

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. l I il 'ls ll ll A 1, Q if 5 I A it f 1 x .i .-1, 'gm hi' V WSJ, 'Env xmmxg qw ml se, fs T-5' H" 5 - .
