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 responsible citizens. 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.

Miss Heinz, Miss Berkoben, and Mr. Campbell CONTENTS o CLASSES QACTIVITIES 1 QATHLETICS 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 in return. 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.

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 IOHN ADAMS RATION SUPERINTENDENT 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- ent. PRINCIPAL 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 in evidence. MR. CURTIS TAYLOR Assistant Principal MARY SHEPLAR MARY McCORMICK Township Secretary High School Secretary NANCY PATTERSON and CAROL FUNDIS Assistant Secretaries 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 evidence. 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. 1 l14l F Iames Altman N. Fay Beck Dolores Betler Fred W.

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 club activities.

Pedder, D. Wright, V. Good N ORHISCOPE Devoting many hours to this activity, the members of the Norhiscope Staff worked dili- gently to publish the school's life story. Work- ing under the direction of Mrs. Isabel Kerner, 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 l69l 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.

Coached by Donald Rose, the Bulldogs played 1 2Section 2 games, 10 in non-league exhibition and 2 in the Westmoreland County Tourna- ment. North Huntingdon started the season at a very fast pace. They won seven out of the first eight games played. The defeat coming at the hands of Monessen in the final three seconds of the game when Hall layed one up for the CContinued on Page 1003 Row 1-I.

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' e mal minutes of play. This defeat seemed to take M. Plank 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- finals. 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. H.

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 Hanko. 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. IUNIOR VARSITY George Row 2-Q. Marcolinoi. I I, Regets, P.

George, L. Dubich, R. Oden MINOR SPORTS 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. LEADER'S CLUB Row 1-R. Ycztes, A. Bcxiley, N. Slates, L.
