Schools are established and maintained to impart knowledge
in certain fields and to develop skills and attitudes that life in
a complex society deems necessary. It would seem to follow
then that the memories of school days would be mostly of the
knowledge of history and geography, skills in reading, writing,
and arithmetic, and the attitudes of honesty, fair play, and
such. But they are not of those things. Instead they are memo-
ries of the people with whom we worked and played, of the
things they said and did, both the foolish and the wise.
This yearbook is an effort to gather as many as possible of
those delightful incidents which mirrored life at Northwest
Area High School. It contains glimpses of personalities, class-
room work, and extracurricular activities. lt is a record of
treasured memories, a lasting souvenir of the class of 1958.
The Northwester staff hopes that this yearhoolc will bring
pleasure now and will continue to furnish pleasant hours in
increasing measure throughout the years.

The Senior Girls' Chorus is the most active of i
the choral groups directed by Mr. Guldin. ln No-
vember it presented an operetta entitled '6An Old-
Fashioned Charmfi ln December a combined band
and choral concert was held. The chorus sang a
number of well-known carols some of which were
sung with band accompaniment. During that month
a selected group sang Christmas Carols at the
P.T.A. meeting. ln March another band and choral
concert was presented. The chorus featured many
popular numbers from Broadway shows. The last
appearance of the chorus was at the baccalaureate
services where the girls sang two numbers-HHe',
and '4The Nation's Prayerf'
The Senior Mixed Chorus sang two selections at
the band and chorus concert. They were 'aThe
Builderi' and "The Battle Hymn of the Republic."
The Ninth Grade Mixed Chorus made no public
appearance but served as a training program for
the senior high choral groups.

At the end of the football season the band

pated in the Loyalty Day parade in Nanticoke and
the Memorial Day parade in Shickshinny. It also
played appropriate selections for the Memorial Day

The activity which provided the greatest thrill
for the members of the dance band was its ap-
pearance on the televised Ted Mack Amateur Show.
This necessitated two trips to New York City-one

dance band received top honors for scoring with

The 'Typing Club, sponsored by Miss Keller, is
composed of students from the junior and senior
classes. The group meets every Wednesday and
Thursday during activity period. Its purpose is to
teach the keyboard and the fundamentals of typing
to academic students who cannot take typing as a
regularly scheduled class. The ability to type for
one's personal use will be a valuable asset to those
students who plan to go to college.
The group of girls who belong to the Ushers'
Club, supervised by Miss Cook, perform a service
which is both needed and appreciated. Their duties
consist of collecting tickets, distributing programs,
and helping guests find suitable seats at activities
which require the use of the auditorium. Their
presence is especially appreciated at times when
large audiences are anticipated such as at concerts,
plays, and commencement.

The Tri-Hi-Y has been very active this
year. Early in the fall the officers and
the advisor, Mrs. Killian, attended the Of-
ficers, Training Conference held at Key-
stone Junior College. To raise money for
their projects the girls sold candy and
cakes. During the Christmas season the
members of the club collected used toys,
clothing, games. and books. These to-
gether with woolen mittens which each
girl made and other articles which the
girls purchased were wrapped attractively
in about 75 packages and taken to the St.
Stanislaus Orphanage. At Easter the girls
bought candy and filled 4-0 Easter baskets
for the children at the orphanage.
The club was commended by the State
Y.lVI.C.A. for its projects and was awarded
a banner for fulfilling the requirements of
the discussion course known as Teen Talks.
The president, Shirley Kishbaugh, attended
a Y.lVI.C.A. dinner where she gave a talk
reviewing the club's activities for the year.

of the organization, the members spent a consider-

students practical experience in setting up and per-

The Student Council is made up of representa-
tives from each class, two faculty members, and
the two supervising principals. The purpose of the
organization is to give the representatives an op-
portunity to present the problems of their fellow
students to the group and attempt to find solutions
for them after pupil and faculty discussions.
Among the activities undertaken by the Council
was the selection of special assembly programs to
be presented to the student body during the year,
planning the Harvest Ball and the Christmas party,
holding occasional locker inspections, working on
the constitution of the organization, and making
plans to produce a student handbook.
Fuling the need of a student hand-
hook. the Council took its production
as one of the projects for the year.
ln the picture to the right, the offi-
cers of the Student Council are shown
with Mr. Gregory, one of the faculty
advisors, examining and discussing
sample handbooks which were secured
from various other high schools.

Northwest opened its l957 season with high
hopes for a successful team. A series of injuries
to key players, illnesses, and a flu epidemic which
caused the cancellation of two games all worked
against the gridders. The biggest blow of all was
the cancellation of most of the games of the pre
vious year which slowed the development of a
potentially strong team. The high point of the
otherwise disappointing season was the defeat of
arch-rival Forty Fort for the first time since 1939
Many promising young players saw action this
year, and with these boys to build around, the
coaches look forward to a winning team next sea

The second year of wrestling at Northwest
proved to be a very good and successful one. The
Rangers started the year in the Y.M.C.A. Novice
Wrestling Tournament with Milford Lewis win-
ning a first place trophy in the 103 pound class
and Kenneth Naugle winning a second place trophy
in the 127 pound class.
The members of the wrestling squad worked
hard and wrestled with the will to win strongly
impressed in their minds. Under the leadership of
the co-captains they exhibited good, hard, clean
wrestling which brought many a fan screaming
to his feet with excitement.
Losing their first match to Danville, the wrestling
Rangers went on to compile an eight win six loss
record for the year which gave them their first
winning season since wrestling began one year ago.
In the Wyoming Valley Wrestling Conference,
Northwest held a four win three loss record to
cop fourth place in that conference.
The Rangers will lose six boys through gradu-
ation. While not all six wrestled varsity, they
helped to develop the team spirit and attitude of
good sportsmanship which will not be forgotten
by those on the squad next year.
Northwest has an optimistic outlook for wres-
tling next season. With a host of returning wres-
tlers, the Rangers have high hopes of having
another winning season and possibly advance
higher in the Wyoming Valley Conference stand-

The Northwest Rangers, defending champions in
the Luzerne County Baseball League, hoped for
another successful season but were handicapped from
the start since there was only one returnee from
the previous yearis championship squad. Despite the
lack of experience, the boys proved their worth time
and again by playing well in all the games and at
times providing some thrilling moments for the fans.
The seniors who gave their all have moved on
while the underclassmen are eagerly looking forward
to next year when they will fill the places vacated
by the seniors and profiting by the experience gained
during the past season, they will endeavor to get the
team back among champions.
