From the beginning of the founding of our
beloved nation the school has been the focal
point of attention. One of the first acts of any
settlement was that of providing for some type
of school organization. Hence, anxious parents
were assured of the fact that their children
would secure the basic fundamentals of reading,
writing and arithmetic, as well being made
aware of those freedoms for which they had
struggled and fought.
Schools of today have been vastly improved
over those of early days, but their basic influ-
ence remains practically the same. Students are
still being taught the fundamentals of learning
and an awareness of their responsibilities to
their community and nation. It's true that they
have the advantage of greatly improved facili-
ties and enriched curricula, but participation in
such serves to heighten their position as future
The school, down through the generations,
has continued to exert much influence on the
educational, social and political life of the com-
munity and, we, at North Huntingdon, are proud
to have a part in contributing to this heritage.

REFLECTION . . .
Evelyn and Dave greet new teachers. Miss Heinz,
Miss Berkoben, and Mr. Campbell
The past year's efforts
are reviewed with pride
There is a tendency to become sentimental
and reflective when reviewing that which has
happened in the past. However, perhaps each
class or organization has a right to do so with
pride, for each has added something to the tra-
dition of the school and each has received much
The work in the classroom has helped to de-
velop the students' mental capacities and has
aided in creating a sense of responsible citizen-
ship. Participation in the many available activi-
ties has helped to enliven school live. Further-
more, it has served in the capacity of enlarging
the students' scope of interest.
A review of the football and basketball games,
the wrestling program, the golf and baseball
teams, as well as the intra-mural program, serves
as a reminder that a well-developed body is
essential to a good life.
Thus, when reflections on classes, activities
and athletics for the year 1952-53 have been
brought to an end, there is a feeling of quiet
satisfaction that the coordination of the results
of all three has been good.

Officials plan and work for o
In order that our school can assume its obli-
gation in preparing boys and girls for the effort
of coping effectively with the problems of the
nation and the world with courage and stead-
fastness, it must present an effective program,
led by far-seeing administrators. We believe
that those in charge of administrative problems
at North Huntingdon have just such a goal in
mind, for we know that the seven-member
School Board, along with administrative leaders
of the school, spend much time in determining
those policies that are for the best interests of
the school and community. They have taken
definite progressive steps to make certain that
North Huntingdon Township High School will
rank among the top high schools of the state.
Officials take time out to pose for picture
Dedicating his life to the promotion
of sound educational policies has been
the aim of Mr. Carl C. Pearsall, Superin-
tendent of North Huntingdon Township
Schools. His vast experience and wealth
of understanding have proved to be
great assets in helping to solve the
many intricate problems that have faced
this school district in the past and pres-
Promoting a sound philosophy of
education has characterized the work
of Mr. Mearl Gerheim, Principal of
North Huntingdon High School, during
the period he has guided the policy of
the high school. His desire to strengthen
all departments of the school and to
present an enriched curriculum to satisfy
the needs of the students has been much

The administration officials and
faculty members work cooperately
for the best interests of the school
Assisting in administrative work and direct-
ing activities of the students were the duties
that were assumed by Mr. Curtis Taylor, Assist-
ant Principal. His efficiency in dealing with
the very important problem of attendance was
noteworthy and his interest in matters pertain-
ing to school and community has been much in
Dealing efficiently with the detailed matters
of the offices were Mrs. Mary McCormick of
the High School Office and Mrs. Mary Sheplar,
Secretary to the Board of Education. Both have
had years of service in this type of work and
thus have been able to help in the efficient
functioning of the business of the school.
Assisting in the work of both offices were
Carol Fundis and Nancy Patterson, who helped
Mrs. McCormick and Mrs. Sheplar, respectively.

on school and community
Eagerly anticipating the events of the final
year before them, the senior class entered
North Huntingdon in September of 1952 with
high hopes. They found it to be a grand finale
of their high school experiencesg filled with
many dances, parties, sports events, new friend-
ships, clubs, and scholastic achievements.
The many talents of the class of ,52 were
distributed among various activities. Taking
their place as leaders in sports field, the boys
helped their Alma Mater through a rather suc-
cessful athletic year. The remainder of the stu-
dents loaned their musical abilities to the Band
and Chorus, while others entered into Publica-
tions, Student Council, Hi-Y, Tri-Hi-Y and other
K'Room for One More," a two-set play, was

The transition from seventh to eighth grade
status was made with a minimum of effort by
these active boys and girls.
To grasp the exact hopes and reactions of
these young students as they were about to fin-
ish their second year of junior high one would
have to have talked and listened to these ex-
cited students. Indeed, hardly any students in
the school were more enthusiastic on advancing
into a new class.

they strived for perfection. Donald Creighton
was the dependable editor who met the dead-
line for publication. The business manager,
David Eberhardt, handled the accounting of
dances, subscriptions, patrons, and concessions.
The talented art editor was Larry Tharp.
In addition to their work on the staff, many
found time to attend school press conferences
of state and national interest. A representative
group went to Pitt last October 2, where Don
Creighton spoke on photography. There were
thirty students who made this trip. To the
Altoona Conference held November 7 and 8
went a body of twenty-four students. Accom-
panying the group was Mrs. Isabel Kerner.
The staff member's "pet project," though, was
operating the concession stand at the football
field. Many memorable events took place that
everyone who had a part in selling coffee and
hot dogs will long remember. Then, too, this
business venture was a successful one, in that
it added much-needed money to the treasury.
The seniors, Donald Creighton, Jerry Radosh,
Nancy Vaughn, Virginia Wall, Roger Willby,
and the juniors, who were prospective publica-
tion members for next year, Donna Cramer,
Landis Jones, Owen Proctor, Eileen Koper, and
Patty Battiston, went to the Columbia Scholas-
tic Press Association annual convention at Co-
lumbia University in New York City. They at-
tended conferences pertaining to all phases,
such as printing, financing, photography, all
patterns of writing, and took an actual part in
three forums. Many ideas were brought back
and applied to our 1953 annual.
In the course of the year the yearbook staff
sponsored many dances, such as the St. Patrick's
day and Valentine's day dance. A corn roast
was held in the fall.
The 1953 Norhiscope staff extends its con-
gratulations to the '52 staff in recognition of last
year's Norhiscope winning medalist honors in
the CSPA judging survey.
In order to get a paper out every two weeks,
many news, feature, and sports writers were
seen working in the staff room at any hour
during and after school sessions. Mrs. Isabel
Kerner, adviser of the school publications, was
overseer of all this work.
Filling the various top positions of a paper

Tempo of school life enlivened
by these spirited groups
Adding their share of moral support to the
football team, the band members and their
director, Mr. Joseph Menham, provided many
intricate and unique half-time formations. One
of the outstanding performances of the season
was the Indian War Dance performed by the
majorettes, who were decked in Indian cos-
tumes, and the band in formations with their
hats adorned with lights.
Ten outstanding musicians: E. Holderbaum,
D. Furlong, M. McGee, O. Proctor, G. Dunn, E.

During the year, Raymond Dudura served as
student director and Evelyn Wright as band
librarian. Putting in several practice sessions a
week, the band was well prepared to present
its excellent spring concert on May 11, with
Mr. Menham conducting. The annual band
banquet held in the cafeteria on May 12 con-
cluded the yearis program.

moral character was the aim of every faithful
Tri-Hi-Y member. Rewarded with a grateful
thanks from giving to needy people was an in-
spiration to the members of the Tri-Hi-Y.
Activities of the year included the impres-
sive inductive services held by the Alpha and
Beta groups. Baskets of food and clothing were
given to the less fortunate on the special holi-
days. Swimming and other activities at the
Y. M. C. A. were enjoyed by the girls.

The "crowning event" of 'the evening
To accentuate the blue and white streamers
of the "Snowflake Ball," gayly adorned Christ-
mas trees with twinkling lights were placed
about the gymnasium. Other decorations were

sleigh, and the realistic mantle piece trimmed
with pine bough and lights.

Miss Pontius checks work ol library aides
Adjusting the lights, setting up the props,
and pulling the curtains were some of the duties
of the stage hands. Mr. Russell McKelvey, fac-
ulty adviser, made certain that the boys had
everything in shape for the stage productions.
The 'tshowl' depended upon the alertness of
jerry Radosh, Wes Broker, Bob Comer, Owen
Kelly, Fred Flenner, and Buck Sensenich.
These boys rendered their time and effort
to "Take Care of My Little Girl," "Room for
One More," "On Stage," "Band Festival," "Fol-
lies of 1953," and many other affairs that de-
pended upon their assistance.
Making a production more timely and
smoothly were attributed to the cooperation
and coordination of the stage crew. They were
truly essential to every performance.
The Hi-Y, under the guidance of Mr. William
Houck, enjoyed another active year as they
combined school service with social entertain-
ment. To lead them through the year were
David Eberhardt, presidentg Clifford Lingsch,
vice-president, Howard Leukhardt, secretary,
replaced later by Walter O'Bradovichg and
Owen Proctor, treasurer. Induction of new
members took place in the gym October 24
along with the services of the Tri-Hi-Y.
The group held a Christmas party December
15, during which time they decorated a tree for
in front of the building. Several swimming and
bowling parties were held during the new year.
To raise funds for the club, the members sold
pins and pennants at the basketball games.
Throughout the year the members of the
Library Club assisted Miss Lois Pontius with
the Library duties. They were students from
the ninth through twelfth grades who worked
in the library a minimum of one period a week.
The purpose of the Library Club was to aid in
the upkeep of the library and to help render
better library service.
Students performed such duties as circulation
desk work, mechanical routines of new books,
and miscellaneous duties of magazines, pamph-
lets, inventory, and bibliographies.
Helping to coordinate the duties of the library
aides were Mary Ann Claar, president, Shirley
Hoak, vice-presidentg Betty Shaw, treasurer,
Loretta Carr, secretary.

year's squad, the Bulldogs had their best grid-
iron season in several years as they won six out
of nine starts under Coaches Kassian Koval-
check and Roy Siebert.
In the first game of the season, the Bulldogs
out-fought a heavier and more experienced
team from Trafford for a deserved 6-0 victory
over the Tomahawks.
Next, the exhibition match with Elizabeth
proved to be one of the high-spots in the sched-
ule. As the Blue and Gold scored on a safety
the final seconds to win 14-13. The Bulldogs
then journeyed to Swissvale and with a dazzling

display of power and deception scored a sur-
prising 12-6 victory over a bigger eleven.
Outmanned and outplayed, the Bulldogs
routed the Scottdale Scotties, an inexperienced
eleven, to the tune of 20-0 on a soaked field.
A weak pass defense proved the undoing for
the Bulldogs as Kittanning handed the Koval-
men a 19-14 defeat. This game was later for-
feited to North Huntingdon.
The Bulldogs were no match for the heavier
more experienced eleven from Jeannette. A. M.
Barnes showed their power by the 20-O win of
the local gridmen.
The high and mighty Bulldogs were in charge
throughout the entire sixty minutes of the
Youngwood encounter as they rallied a 39-7
win over the Railroaders.
A valiant fight to the end was staged by the
Kovalmen as they lost a very close 18-13 ball
game to a Derry Township eleven.
Students thrilled to exploits on the gridiron

41-40 victory. Then the Rosemen were de

test. D '
erry Twp., Connellsvllle, and Uniontown
were turned back by the local quintet before
they were upset by Hurst, an underestimated
quintet. Latrobe then took the hopes for the
section title away from the Bulldogs in a heart-
breaking 51-47 defeat. Following this defeat,
Jeannette fell to the Bulldogs as the first half
of the league season came to a close. In the
first game of the second round, the Greensburg
Lions rallied to defeat the Bulldogs in th f'
minutes of play. This defeat seemed to take
form and good sportsmanship displayed
away the spark of a winning club as the Blue
and Gold dropped their next five games. The
league season ended with '
a win over Jeannette.
St. Vincent faced the Bulldogs in the county
tournament and went down to defeat. Latrobe
then eliminated the Rosemen in the quarter-
Captain Howard Leukhardt highlighted his
b k '
as etball career by leadlng the scoring with
350 points. Seniors Dave Carerra and Milton
Plank ended up with 140 and 197 points, re-
spectively, for the season. Juniors Jack Sher-
bondy and Regis Filtz, who will be the nucleus
of next year's team, showed their authority on
the hardwood. Jack scored 150 points while
Regis ripped the cords for 104.

Junior teams indicated promise for the future
Under the coaching of Mr. Robert Kowash,
the Jayvee cagers finished the season with a
fair record. Although being a small team, the
scrappy junior varsity players compiled vic-
tories over such teams as Wilmerding, Somerset,
Connellsville, Hurst, Pitcairn, East Pittsburgh,
and East McKeesport.
Along with these impressive wins, the Bull-
pups suffered defeat at the hands of Uniontown,
Monessen, Greensburg, Derry Township, and
Connellsville. Displaying fine form and promise
were Joe Regets, john Crupie, and George
Directing the boys on the Junior High squad
was Mr. james Jenets. These young basketeers,
although showing lots of spirit and fight, com-
pleted a light schedule.
Proving themselves to be worthy players and
good material for future teams were Frank
Eichelberger, Ed Ziegler, and Chico Vasquez.

Minor sports at North Huntingdon include
baseball, golf, and wrestling. The teams, al-
though lacking in experience, fought their way
through very rough competition.
Wrestling became another highlight in the
sports scene here at North Huntingdon this
year. The matmen, coached by Roy Siebert,
lacked experience, but really surprised every
team they met. Their only victory came in the
last match against Jeannette. Defeats were
handed them by Charleroi twice, Greensburg,
Blairsville, and Claysville. The team was also
entered in the W. P. I. A. L. wrestling playoff
held at the Pitt Field House.
Last year the baseball team took the section
championship. Wins over Wilmerding, Plum,
Trafford, and Pitcairn enabled the Bulldogs to
accomplish this feat. A strong Glassport team
defeated the Lawsonmen in the section playoffs.
This year due to the rain and snow only one
game has been played at the time of this writing.
The Trafford Tomahawks were handed a 10-2
walloping. The team's future looks very good
as the yearbook goes to press.
North Huntingdon golf teams, under the lead-
ership of George Koelsch, entered into the
W. P. I. A. L. competition this year. Sopho-
mores dominated the squad with the exception
of James Borza, who was a senior. Jack Howell
and Jim Borza led the Bulldog scoring.
