A"'e""' F In a letter sol'citing advertising for the 1942 "Reflector" by mail, we made a statement that despite the war and priorities, there was going to be a yearbook at Trafford High School. This book, as you now see it, represents the fulfillment of that pledge. The school is still the bulwark of Democracy.

KELLY We honor Mr. Kelly for his invaluable seven years of service to Trafford High School. The Class of 1942 shows its respect and gratitude to Mr. Kelly in the dedi- cation of our "ReEector". His extensive knowledge and acccmplislments in the field of science and botany have enabled him to give us advice most unseliishly. For a man of such talent, friendliness, and ability, each pupil can possess only admiration. As we make our own lives and fortunes, we shall always remember a teacher who enriched our lives and helped us on our road to success. Mx .

Without it, this world of ours would place indeed. With it, we can drown our deepest sorrows if only for a little while Perhaps you have already noticed the masque of comedy on the cover of this year's "Refiector" and wonder what it had to do with the book itself. In the earlier days actors wore this masque so that the audience might know the presentation was to be a humorous one. We have incorporated this same idea into our annual this year. By using the masque of comedy on the cover of your book, we are revealing to you that the theme behind our publication is comedy and laughter. We bring this new theme to you through the aid of our dear beloved friend and classmate, " Guppy". In case you are inquisitive, " Guppy" is a typical Trafford High School Senior in that he spends at least two nights a week in Time Room, knows everyone else's business, seldom does his own nightwork, and thinks he is just about "it", But at heart is a good chap and will be only too glad to show you about the school and introduce you to our students, faculty, and various activities. The only condition he asks for, however, is that he be excused from classes while doing lt. So why not join him? If you find yourself able to escape from the coniiict and turmoil of our present world while glancing through our book, pausing here and there to reflect and visualize our various school activities in a more or less humorous vein, then we will feel certain that we have attained our purpose.

Gethin, Vice President. Standing: Mr. E. L. Hill- strom, Mr. J. M. Brown. School Board Guppy points with pride to the Board of Education of the Trafford Public Schools. Although it is impossible for him to take you to one of their meetings, he can tell you that when they do meet, it is for the purpose of discussing conditions and ways of betterment in our schools. No one realizes more than Guppy himself that the decisions handed down by this Board are the wisest possible for the progress and welfare of our Alma Mater. Guppy will also inform you that the Board does not limit itself to school matters alone, but is responsible for numerous improvements in our community as well. He points with pride to his own resplendent brown and white band uniform. The Board is responsible for outiitting the entire High School Band as well as the alluring majorettes who lead it. This serves as an excellent example of the good works done by this body of men. When Guppy expresses his gratitude to our Board of Education members for all their services, he is merely carrying out the wishes of all the students. We keel certain that these gentlemen will continue to serve, not only the school, but also the community, to the best of their ability. The Reflector I I iw? I IWW I LG e.f'l ' in G U D DY ME ETI TH If D E0 D LE "I must watch my time" Greetings from THE AMERICAN LEGION AUXILIARY 'I'raf-Ford, Unit 331 Mr. H. E. Seville Our Supervisor Mr. Seville, our Supervising Principal, has for the past eighteen years directed the educational program in the Trafford Public Schools. His interest and sympathy in Student activity have helped to shape the lives of many youths. We always enjoy listening to Mr. Seville tell of his experiences as a school teacher and as a super- visor in a small country school. By hearing him tell of these experiences one can learn many lessons. Some of Mr. Sevi1le's students from that little sclzool have made great names for themselves. He is proud of them. We hope he will have reason to be just as proud of us, Through Mr. Seville's connections with different organi- zations of Trafford, he not only has successfully directed the education program in the Trafford Public Schools but he has also done much toward the betterment of the community. We shall always be grateful to Mr. Seville for his guidance throughout our school years. Our Principal Mr. Legory has been connected with Trafford High School since 1927. He began his work here as a science teacher and in a few years attained the position of High School Principal. Through his self-control and suave manner he was won the admiration and respect of many. As we leave behind our High School days, we can not forget this friend whose guidance through our four years of High School has done much to keep many on the road to success. May we always remember and try to follow the fine example set by Mr. Legory. Not only will we remember Mr. Legory for his excellent supervision of our High School but also for his masterful teaching. In addition to his duties as Principal he teaches several Chemistry classes. We hope the students of Trafford High School for many years to come will learn to know and appreciate him as we have. The Reflector Mr. L. A. Legory Our Instructors Sitting: Miss Bierer, Mrs. David- son, Mrs. Lloyd, Miss Megee, Mr. Shrock, Mr. McFadden, Mr. Lloyd Standing: Mr. McLeister, Mr. Ruckle, Mr. Koepka, Mr. Kelly Missing from group: Mrs. Conolly, Mr. Legory Guppy Sees the Faculty Guppy remembers the faculty by their calling cards. Each one brings vivid memories back to him. One especially, is that of Mr, Lloyd's. On it was written Algebra and Geometry. One problem Guppy has never solved is how can such a short teacher wrestle such large subjects. With Mrs. Davidson, Guppy shared his joys, sorrows, and also his?? marks in Civics and English. Coming with Mrs. Connelly's card is always her S0-50 proposition in Civics and History. 450 true and false questions? On Mr. Ruckle's calling card is Bookkeeping and Typing. Guppy has been hearing lately that our Commercial teacher has been seeing every- thing by twos. The reason might be his lovely twin daughters. Guppy knows the writing on the next card, well, as it has often appeared on his corrected Latin and English papers: it is the easily read script ol Miss Bierer. The aroma of frogs and fish comes with next calling card. On it was written Gen. Science and Biology. Mr. Kelly, can you still go home and eat a good dinner after one of your dissecting classes? From Room 29, comes a card in which is written History. Mr. Shrock has many History dates sealed away in his memory: there is one that is outstanding to him, 1939-- the time when a certain "Darlene" joined the family. The next calling card is written in cyphers--I beg your pardon, Miss Megee, it seems to be Shorthand! Hurry up, Guppy, and get Miss Megee a chair and a glass of water, the commercial girls are taking 110 words per minute. Indelibly written on the next card is Physical Education. Poor Guppy is wondering if he will ever have the muscles and shoulders Mr. Koepka has. Ssh, ssh, let Guppy keep on dreaming. "Je ne sais pas" is Guppy's answer to Mrs. Lloyd's calling card. Poor "la maitresse", after two years of teaching him French and the answer is still "je ne sais pas". QP.S. It means "I do not know"Q. Wading through the Classics, and English Literature, Guppy encounters the calling card of Mr. McLeister. It was written hurriedly, but then who has to straighten out all of the Seniors difficulties? Guppy sadly now turns his step to Room 31. The teacher's calling card reads "Army Air Corps". Our pilots must know some Physics and Trigonometry to win our war, so we supplied them with Mr. McFadden, now, however, Mr. Kudrow is pinch-hitting for liim and doing a good job. Guppy really surprised Mr. Legory when he asked for a calling card instead of an excuse. H20 is vital to life, and Mr. Legory is vital to T.H.S. The Reflec tor visitor in our Miss Grace Huttn i Our Secretary Guppy certainly had one advantage over the other boys in the school. He went down to the office for sup- plies every month. On his first trip to the office, he met Mr. Seville's competent new secretary, Miss Louise Yeager. Guppy thought she was superb-'just the l-Lind of secretary he'd want: tall, blonde, very efficient, and very neat. Whenever he found the office empty, Guppy would call her up and talk for hours, just to get out of classes. l Our Nurse Miss Hutton, the school nurse, had a very frequent in the health office every afternoon. Guppy had the class the habit of making his afternoon calls during periods, but Miss Hutton soon got wise to him. Telling him he was suffering from an imaginary disease, she sent him back to class with an excuse. Miss Hutton has been school for the past Eve years. She's not fond of hyperchrondiacs nor valetudinarians, sic. Miss Lo..ii,e X eager First row: Betty Harris Second row: Betty Zeravica, Dorothy Du- brave Third row: Edith Giacomin, Margaret Lovre, Joan Welsh Fourth row: Mary Grace Lovett,Camilla Lovett, Doris Jenkins The Reflector May Queen Group It was time for the May Queen group to enter the gym- nasium. Guppy was sitting in the front row where he had been stationed since eleven o'clock. He will never forget how lovely the procession looked that night-the Senior representatives in yellow gowns, the junior girls in blue, the Sophcmores in pink, and the Freshmen in green. The queen, who was in Guppy's estimation the most outstanding ever to reign in T.H.S., was, to say the least, super-super. Guppy sat with his mouth gaping throughout the ceremony and when it was all over he sighed and sighedfand sighed again. 10 I-IE 1942 GRADUATE! SENIOR CLASS OFFIC ERS Left to right: John S. Harris, Treasurer, Sophie Shurmatz, Secretary, Robert Cor- coran, Vice President, Elaine Mclndoe, Ass't. Treasurer: James Jenets, President Senior C lass H istory When Guppy heard that he was to write the Senior Class History for the " Reflector", he became panic stricken. His memory had never been any- thing to brag about, but now it was a complete blank. However, after giving his fellow Seniors the third degree, he recalled a few of the outstand- ing events of his high school life. For instance, he remembered the important feeling he had when Mr. Legory dismissed the Seniors from the chapel exercises before the others, at the beginning of his Senior year. The under- classmen seemed quite small and insignificant that day. Then, there was the day that jimmy jenets, who is everybody's pal, was voted Presi- dent of the Senior class. Bob Corcoran went along as Vice President just for the ride, and Sophie Shurmatz and john Harris were Secretary and Treasurer, respectively. Elaine Mclndoe acted as assistant treasurer. "Gallopin' Ghosts", the Senior class play, couldn't have been anything but a success with jane Feigert's contribution as "Righty Marie". Guppy recalled, with pleasure, the operetta, "Crocodile Island", in which Betty Brezovic and Bill Fleming played the leading roles. And of course, he couldn't forget the day that the Commercial Law Class toured Greensburg. Guppy remembered the fun everyone had trying to decide who our May Queen should be, and how thrilled he was when he learned that Betty Harris had been chosen. Her Senior attendants were Betty Zeravica and Dorothy Dubrave. Probing into his memory a little farther, Guppy could see, once more, the look of complete disgust I1 on the faces of the Junior girls during the pre' ceding year when they discovered that every office was held by a boy. Teddy Federonko was the President, Max Dorosa was Vice President until he was promoted and Tony Folino acted as Secretary-Treasurer for the duration. Guppy recalled the line performance given by Edward Josephic as Vaslav in the operetta, "The Forest Prince". The junior Class was given the privilege of presenting as its class play " It's A Long Lane", by John Hershey. The May Queen attendants were Elaine Mclndoe and Betty Zeravica. Guppy can still imagine himself in a Chinese garden when he thinks of the prom. During the Sophomore year, Leila Baker dis- tinguished herself by winning a place in the Forensic League contest for the county, as a pianist. Guppy remembered the May Queen procession in which Anna Radosh, and Catherine Wandless proudly represented the Sophomore Class. Elaine Mclndoe shouldered her responsibilities as President of the class, while John Bucar carried out his duties as Vice President, and Helen Zigarovich took notes and money as a good Secretary-Treasurer should. Guppy smiled to himself as he thought of the Freshman dance, with everyone jumping around on one foot and thinking he was doing the shag. When the time arrived for the election of officers, Sophie Shurmatz was selected at Presidentg George Bartakovich as Vice President, and Catherine Wandless as Secretary-Treasurer. After Guppy had finished reviewing his high school days he muttered quietly to himself, "Those were the good old days".

The Reflector SEN IORS A Long Range Forecast , Behind the editor's desk of that great syndicate newspaper, "The Trafford Tattler," sits our dear old friend Guppy. His hair has thinned out, and his figure is not so dashing as it once used to be, but that twinkle in his eye when he smiles suggests that he still is as fond of mischief as he was many yeais ago at T.H.S. He glances at the calendar to reassure himself that this is the day. "May 27, 1957--How many changes can fifteen years make?" he asks himself. Back in 1942 when he, with seventy-odd other Seniors, graduated from T.H.S., it was agreed that on this date, each one would send a report of his achievements direct to "The Trafford Tattler". From these reports a special paper would be printed and a copy sent to each contributor. And now, the day has come! He presses one of the many buzzers on his desk and in an instant his secretary, Helen Zigarovich, enters laden with letters, papers and pencils. Being a "42" graduate herself, she realizes the tremendous im- portance of this occasion and has already taken time to begin the list. Under her own name and Guppy's we find that of James Jenets, President of the Sixteenth 9 f Nba Rife's "Recipes from the Old South," and Francis Murray and Walter Scanlon's column "The Seattle Cherry-go-Round' . We mustn't overlook Bob Corcoran and Betty Jones, who have originated that new comic strip "Betty Petty" using Barbara Balkovic and Lois Schaffer as models. Then we have the local beauty parlor owned by Adeline Czapor with the famous John Kellar as hair stylist and Mary Jane Pringle, Jane Crandall, Krcelic, and Anna Lubanovich as operators. We might add that Frank Grbinich, manager of Trot- zer's Department Store, and Charles Wanner, manufacturer of noiseless alarm clocks, receive their weekly manicure here. Now we come to our three sets of brothers. The Folino Brothers producers on Broadway with their leading ladies, Marie Chappetti, and Margaret Burnett, their leading men, Glenn Shoppe and Lester Lutz, not for- getting to mention their songwrit- er, John Vaccarro, and stage hands, Steve Mikach and George Rantovich are up to their necks in a bitter feud with the Turchan Brothers, producers of Amalga- mated Pictures with their stars 1 Mary Carroll, Anna Stakor, Albert I f 1,- I ' A National Bank, and Catherine Wandless, his secretary. Following them we find several representatives of the local alumnae of "42" at the Harris Hospital, so called because Betty Harris, world famous mezzo soprano, and john Harris, famous orchestra leader, wishing to immortalize their name, donated the funds to build it. Those at the hospital are Emma Jean Cartwright, superintendent of Nurses Edwin Bandy, famous photographer, who is being re-operated on by Staff Surgeon Dr. John Bucar because Nurse Marion- Kerrigan has misplaced her chewing gum, and society matrons Jane Feigert and Dorothy Dubrave, overstaying cases of mumps and measles respectively, so they might be near the handsome doctors, Joseph Lenhart and John Lovre. There are also quite a few doing work with"The Trafford Tattler" itself. Here we find Sophie Shurmatz, writing the famous "Advice to the Lovelorn", Bill Fleming's column on "You Are What You Eat," combined with Dorothy Mae Josephic, and Edward Lawrence. Here we have our famous character Ivan Roackage, who is a prodigy of Orson Welles. Standing calmly by, supposedly neutral in this feud, we find the Grande Brothers, own- ers of the great network, T.H.S. They have just begun a new show entitled "Gunman's Moll" starring Max Dorosa and Anne Radosh with a supporting cast consisting of those veterans of stage and screen, George Myers and Frank Dra- gisic. This blood-curdling drama is sponsored by Donald Leffier, manufacturer of Tinker Toys for Youngsters. George Jonlia is responsible for testing each of these toys before they leave the factory. Ineidentally, it is rumored that Betty Zeravica and her dancing trio including Virginia Patika, Mary Kasonovich, and Kathryn Ivicak are touring Army Camps in one of Gwen Gethiri's Black- poodle busses.

It was their first year on the upper floor and everything was unfamiliar. They missed Miss Barr and Mr. Shank. Why, geography and literature weren't even on the schedule. How- ever, they soon grew accustomed to the new routine and elected class officers. They were: Joan Welsh, president, who had the immense task of doing nothingg Edward Magusiak, vice president, dittog Adeline Bray, secretary, and Charles Baird, treasurer. He collected enough dues to finance two parties. Everyone spent three restless hours at each party, and then went home dissatisfied with the favors, as usual. One day, months before May, ballots were distributed for the purpose of electing May Queen attendants. The freshmen very wisely decided on Adeline Bray and Marguerite Smith. To celebrate their graduation to the sophomore class, all of the freshmen got dizzy riding the Racer at the annual picnic at Kennywood Park. And then their second year at high school. Remember, Guppy? The first few days were spent in the woods killing most of the trees in order to get a few more leaves for Biology note-books. You did the same thing a year before, Guppy. This was a year to remember. The year the Academic students were introduced to Caesar, the year the Commercial learned to pound out words on a typewriter, and this was the year Emma jean and George discovered each other. This year for class officers they elceted Edith Giacomin, presidentg Anna- belle Zuback, vice-presidentg Helen Zyhowski, secretaryg and Kathryn Hauth, treasurer. Naturally these officers wouldn't break any old traditions by working, so their terms passed uneventfully, except for the two parties at which everyone had so much fun?? Another May Day and the sophomores chose two lovely brunettes, Kathryn Hauth and LaVerne Mertz. The closing months of school brought on the usual restlessness and spring fever, and the usual picnic at Kenny- wood Park. Then, on an important day in May, the sophomores became upper- classmen. As Juniors they took on an important task. This year they were at work for the Junior-Senior Prom, which is held for you, Guppy, and the other Seniors. To help their finances, of which they had everything but, they sold salt water taffy. Prizes for selling the most taffy were given to several junior girls, who probably never want to see another piece of salt water taffy again. The class officers were elected, to wit: james Masteranna, president, Edward Capets, vice presidentg Adam Yourcheck, secretary-treasurer. They held a skating party at the Broadway Rink and the profits greatly helped the treasury. Then the Juniors took to selling candy bars ati noon, and at the basketball games, and the plays. No school event was complete without the "Kandy Kids" Qname courtesy of Mr. Shrockj. For the third time they elected attendants, Edith Giacomin and Joan Welsh. Soon after the Junior-Senior Prom, Guppy, you and all the other Seniors will be leaving dear old Trafford High. The Juniors, who will succeed you, wish you all the luck in the world.

CLA SS OF 1944 ff It won't be long now - - - " One night after school Guppy, a typical Senior, was paying up for sleeping in too late that morning by sitting in Time Room for one-half hour. Like all students, when he got to Time Room, he could think of nothing else to do except talk, so he picked on his neighbor, who happened to be a Sopho- more. The subject Guppy thought was most interesting was the election of the May Queen that morning. This started the Sophomore on a train of thoughts. Half thinking to himself and half talking to Guppy he said, "Yeah, election of May Queen today. Seems like no time since we entered high schoolu. "Hm, our Freshman girls were pretty indignant about their separate Glee Club. The boys succeeded in getting into the older Boy's Glee Club though. Hal Ha! Irrepressible "Halfy" Gioia certainly was at home in the part of the Jester in the annual operetta, "The Forest Prince". "Then there were our class parties. Never had so much fun in my life. Even learned a bit about dancing." Guppy interrupted him to ask who the Freshman class officers were last year. "Oh yes, our class officers. Kids made a big mistake in neglecting to elect me. Oh, well, Pres. Chuck Monahan, V. Pres., Pat Gorman, and Sec.-Treas., Jack Baker did a swell job as our executives, so they didn't miss me". "Gee this stoved linger hurts! Got it playing basketball in gym class. Didn't make the team myself. Coach just didn't appreciate my basketball abilities. Too bad we couldn't have made a better showing as Freshmen, but there'll come a day. " There goes Alma Pogue through the hall. She and Helen Petrini made lovely Freshman attendants." At this point Guppy and his friend were sharply reminded that they were sup- posed to be studying, but after a vague attempt to look busy they were soon talking their heads off again. "Gee", said the Sophomore, "tonight's the annual football banquet. Couple of our huskier Sophornores'll be there. I should be too, but Mother thought I was a bit too frail for football. I only weigh 210 pounds." " Phew! sure is warm today! Reminds me of " Crocodile Island", our operetta. A goodly number of Sophomores were in choruses. Would've had the lead myself if voice hadn't been changing." "Heat reminds me too of the terrific exercise I got trying to do the La Conga at our last Class Party. The Sophomore officers, Pres. Carl Peducci, V. Pres., Jack Baker and Eddie Howes, and Sec.-Treas. Walter Koon did themselves proud in planning both parties." "My basketball abilities were ignored this year as usual, and to my surprise the Sophomore boys made quite a name for themselves and the girls showed a marked improvement too." At last they were aroused from their musing and were dismissed from Time Room. The Sophomore met a fellow-student in the hall and learned that the Sophomore Attendants were to be Mary Grace Lovett and Margaret Lovre. Making their way homeward, the Sophomore said to Guppy, "You know, it's too bad they don't elect boys for attendants. I think I would have made a dandy one. People just don't appreciate me."

Baker, THE GLEE CLUBS "Blended Voices in Harmony" This year the glee club was under the direction of Mrs. Ference, and Guppy noticed that this was her first year with a high school glee club. During the course of the year they learned many fine selections, but those that caught Guppy's ear were "Leibestram" and " I'll See You Again". On several occasions Guppy has had the pleasure of hearing the girls sing at our assemblies. Within the glee club Guppy detected a quartet, who incidentally performed very well on the nights of the Senior Class Play. The members of the quartet were Sophie Shur- matz, Helen Zigarovich, Alma Pogue, and Mary Grace Lovett. Guppy will never forget Sophie when the quartet sang "Elmer's Tune" at assembly. In early spring, Guppy noticed Seniors, under-classmen and what not--running about the school dressed in bright colored costumes with bright Bowers adorning their hair. T o Guppy's surprise it was operetta time again, and the girls were taking their parts, some as members of the cast and others as natives, sailors, and tourists. Guppy agrees that Mrs. F erence should be given much credit for all the time she spent in getting the operetta ready for presentation. To put the final touch to her work with the glee clubs, Mrs. Ference had a big party in the gym. Everybody had a good time--ask Guppy-- he was there. "This year," Guppy says, "was a successful one for the Freshman Girl's Glee Club". It was surprising the number oi girls who were more than enthusiastic to join with Miss Hammon to form, what has proved to be a very active organization. Upon observing this group at some of its meetings, which incidentally, were held on Fridays, Guppy noticed that these girls really enjoyed their work. Per- haps they seemed to enjoy it because of the fine way in which it was presented to them or maybe too, because of the very fine selection of music. But still, Guppy has a better reason--the director of the Freshman Girls Glee Club is Miss Hammon, who is a new-comer to the Trafford Schools this year. Much credit is to be given to Miss Hammon for the time she spent in helping to make the operetta the success it proved to be. Besides appearing at assembly on several occasions, the Freshman Girl's Glee Club also played a big part in the school's annual operetta, "Crocodile Island". Guppy mustn't forget their piano accompanist and secretary, Florence Mayer and Daisy Chappetti, respectively. At the beginning of the year Guppy had a question on his mind. Who was going to instruct the Boy's Glee Club, since Mr. Renton had left. Finally one day practice for the Boy's Glee Club was called on the stage. When someone said the instructor was coming, Guppy looked at the entrance. He learned that the new instructor was Miss Hammon. Guppy has never missed a practice, isn't that strange? Soon Miss Hammon called for tryouts for the operetta. Guppy naturally tried for the lead, but he went flat and his voice screeked. Finally William Fleming, John Bucar, James Jenets, Carl Dorosa, William Cellich, and Roy Cellich got the male leads. Guppy got a part to scrub and sweep the stage. 29 "Just another 'nightingale?" x 3. ul NA SY xx "X visa 1 ex - , 5 MY, S I- . N ilfii: fzt . R -, lisa .tx N F' ' A, 'tx' .. up NX ' X QN , his ' ' I m all wrapped up in music" INSTRUMENTAL GROUPS "A Symphony of Sounds" When the senior orchestra plays at an affair, Guppy is always thrilled, be- cause that means that he can play his tuba for the public. Guppy hasn't been playing long enough to take solos, but when he plays "off beat" time, it's just as much fun as a solo. ' At the time Mrs. Ference first organized this orchestra, instruments in Trafford High School were almost extinct. However, soon after a drive for more musical instruments had been completed, Mrs. Ference had an orchestra of considerable size. Since the orchestra has made itself a definite part of Trafford's musical plan, by playing at all school entertainments. May it continue to expand in years to come. When our band begins to play, Guppy's heart keeps perfect time with the bass drum. He thinks Trafford's band is just about tops, and for once everyone agrees with Guppy. The brown and white uniforms worn by our present band members present a picture that is certain to please even the most severe critics. They, strangely enough compare favorably with any of the ordinarily more appealing colors. In fact, Guppy thinks they outshine any uniform he's ever seen. Of course, he may be just the least bit prejudiced. Mrs. Ference, the conductor has worked both hard and well with our band this year, and the results have been more than satisfactory. Guppy and his fellow Seniors wish the band success in the years to come. May it always be considered, by the students of Trafford High, as an essential part of high school life. Since everyone at T.H.S. agrees that "all work and no play makes a bad student worse," Mr. Shank's orchestra provides the music for the various class dances. Guppy, Trafford's prize jitterbug claims that no orchestra can play "Alexan- der's Rag Time Band" like our school orchestra plays it--and live. Seriously though, Mr. Shank has conducted the dance orchestra for ten years and that is quite a record. Especially when you consider the fact that he's played his trumpet with the orchestra for that length of time also. In fact, without his trumpet every dance would probably turn into a free-for-all, with each player keeping his own time. But since we do have Mr. Shank, we think he deserved a great big hand for his patience and understanding. 30 ORCHESTRA First row: R. Phillips, C. Whitaker, N. Cerne, M. Lovre, L. Walker, A.

One day Guppy walked into the high school gym just as the curtain parted for the first act of Crocodile Island, an Operetta, being presented by the high school Glee Clubs. The parting curtain disclosed a scene of exotic beauty and Guppy sat speechless as the plot unfolded before his eyes. It appeared that the happiness of Crocodile Island and its cheerful leader, King Bongazoola fRoy Cellichj was being menaced by the presence of the guard- ian of the sacred Crocodiles, Coco Orinoco, Games Jenetsj who acts as an inter- preter for a dreaded oracle and also has sinister designs on the kingdom. Thus, it happens that on the day of the story he demands the King and Nitwit tCarl Dorosaj to be offered as sacrifices to the crocodiles. While the King debates with his two daughters Pearl QBetty Brezovicj and Petal fDorothy Dubravej the best way to escape, the royal nurse, Mammy Lu fFrances CiCesarej comes hurrying in to announce the arrival of a shipload of American tourists. Chief among the tourists are: Dr. Amos McSnoozer, tWilliam Cellichj an elderly gem collectorg his nurse, Sara Crisp QI-Ielen Zigarovichlg Miss Abigail Brewster QGwen Gethinl and her nephews, Tom Brooks CBill Flemingb and jefferson, Penfield Cjohn Bucarj and a colored porter, Hopalong Simpson CBob Corcoranj. Of course, Tom and Jeff immediately make the acquaintance of Pearl and Petal, who tell them about the plan to get rid of the King. They conceive the plan of having Hopalong change places with the King, but Hopalong hides in the oracle. When Coco calls on the oracle for a final pronouncement, Hopalong's presence changes matters and Coco confesses his deception. Tom and Jeff are rewarded with the hands of the King's daughters and Hopalong finds recompense in the charms of Mammy Lu. Guppy applauded when the curtain was drawn, but he felt a pang of regret that he had not participated even in the chorus which played such an important part in making the operetta a success. Outside Guppy noticed the Majorettes practicing and stood entranced as they went through their routines. He registered that Dorothy Dubrave would be leaving and wondered who would take her place. The girls made a big hit at the Football games and were always ready to do their part in making the band a success. They started last year with Dolly Lavish, Dot Dubrave, and Mary Lou Harris. Later Camilla Lovett, Loraine Heinritz, Emma Zigarovich, Helen Petrini, and Marilyn Pogue were chosen to do some "stepping", Guppy finally came out of his trance and noticed Mr. Ruckle coaching the girls. He thought back to the time when Mr. Ruckle started training the girls and still patiently keeps on the job. The students owe a lot to him so its "hats off to Mr. Ruckle." No Guppy, we know you don't have a hat. Guppy on his way home met several members of the Seventh and Eighth Grade Glee Club and commended them for their fine performances in Chapel. They thanked him but said all the glory went to Miss Hammon. 33 JI. .NJ 'F' eta, 3 .11 , ,wr W1 MM fill " lilly WW, f 5 .1 11 l"'l.l'1W 'Mr' .SWT gl 1 fm wi' M Pblwllfllh "ill" :i'.'!1'i"'l. -I' ,L l i if 'iff M y ...

After Guppy had recovered from the shock, he found that he had encountered Gevalt, make-believe ghost of the Senior Class Play. Pat QBetty Harrisj and Phil QWilliam Cellichj, niece and nephew of Aunt Betty QMartha Paichj, are not idly twiddling their thumbs until the guests arrive for Aunt Bettie's birthday party. They have made a ghost to scare Richard Barton Qjames Jenetsj, a wealthy 1 wyer, and Madame Dupre, QAnn Radoshb but in the meantime .hey scare cousin Melinda CDorothy Mae Rifel nea to death. Steve QBill Flemingj is supposed to dress up as a ghost and scare Madame Dupre but he comes over to show Pat his costume and scares Aunt Betty instead. After the arrival of Richard Barton, his wife Berkely QCatherine Wandlessf, Madame Dupre, and Tom Barton Cjohn Bucarj everything is set to order when who should pop in but Marie Farrell fjane Feigertj fiancee of Tom.. She is a scatterbrain girl who is frank almost to the point of embarrassment and she never shuts up. Dick brought some gold that he was going to hide and then hold a seance with Madame Dupre as a clairvoyant. Madame Dupre has some ideas of her own and she tells Albert fMax Dorosaj, her accomplice, where the gold is hidden and he is supposed to steal it. Well, you know what happened: Albert stole the bag filled with rocks and got caught. Dick got th: gold back and found the real gold that Grandpa Barton had hid besides. The play turned out all right, and I don't think anybody was scared too much by Gevalt except Guppy. This ought to teach Guppy a lesson not to wander around in places where he shouldn't be, or Mrs. Lloyd and Mr. McLeister will put him to work shining light bulbs. 34 Front row seated: J. Jenets C.

M Rxfe HTOMAHAWKH Carries On Our monthly journal, "The Tomahawk", originated by the Honor Society in 1939, has completed its third successful year under the supervision of Miss Megee, Mr. Lloyd, and Mr. McLeister. The staff, composed of thirty-three high school representatives has worked hard to bring entertainment and enjoyment to the student body. Much credit is given to Betty Brezovic, our editor-in-chief. Marjorie Bacon is assist ant editor and jane Feigert, news editor. Our business manager, Sophie Shurmatz, con- troling our money CPP, keeps us out of "the red!" Despite the fact that our reporters have much difficulty in remembering the deadlines, they have been faithful and, as the backbone of our paper, deserve much credit. Betty Jones and her assistants have drawn our sketches, and Elaine Mclndoe has entertained us with her exchange articles. Our Sports Editor is Bill Lucas. Our faithful typists, along with these, are worthy of our recognition. This year our business enterprizes were the investments in card tables to be rented at the school parties and the sale of Christmas candy. These have helped us on our road to financial success. Another year has passed in the life of our paper. This, another step forward in the progress of education, has helped to develop the talent of its contributors' and has brought much interest in the school activities. May our "Tomahawk' live for many years to come. TOMAHAWK STAFF First row: V. Paich, L. Muntz, C. Hillstrom, M. Sana ders, E. Mclndoe, D. Du- brave, H. Zigarovich, A. Stakor, B. Harris, J. Welsh.

When Mr. Kelly calls a meeting, he does not have to look over the whole school to find Guppy, for he is always around where one hears feminine voices. Now Mr. Kelly waits for tive minutes till the members become orderly. Then as he is about to call the meeting to order, Guppy raises his hand, and asks if he may go out and get a drink of water. Mr. Kelly now balances the sword on one hand, and the pen on the other, The pen wins, and permission is granted. After Guppy's return, the meeting is started. Mr. Kelly explains that this year the Astronomy Club will not take a trip to Pittsburgh. "What!" says Guppy, "No trip to Pittsburgh?" "No, Guppy," says Mr. Kelly, and I'1l tell you why. We all realize that transr portation rates are high, and that we must be willing to sacrifice such privileges as trips to Pittsburgh during this crisis. Do you understand, Guppy?" "Yes, Mr Kelly," answers Guppy, "and incidently when will our telescope be completed, and where will it be placed?" Mr. Kelly pulls out his handkerchief and after wiping his brow says, "You're a very inquisitive lad, Guppy, but I shall answer your question. Our telescope will be completed at the end of this year. We then shall install it under a dome, which shall be built on the new field. This observatory when completed will be used by our dear little astronomy students." Mr. Kelly stops suddenly. "Why the tears, Guppy? Are they falling because you are graduating this year?" "No, Mr. Kelly, it isn't that. It's this onion." 36 Jenets, E. Mclndoe, P. Gor- "We're the T Boys, but no tea.

What is this queer sight coming toward us? Why, it looks like Guppy with " T's" all over his jacket. Oh, now we get it. He is a twenty-one letter man and has decided to let every one know about it. Guppy just couldn't be satisfied with one letter on his jacket, he had to have a jacket made of his letters. Of course, his mother had to do some Crocheting, so the boys decided to save their money and have Guppy's mother make his jacket. Do you mind if we call him over and get some information about this club? "Oh, Guppy, will you come here a moment? What is this Varsity Club, what is its purpose, and who are eligible to join?" "Please, Mr. Reporter, one question at a time. What I want to know is what do I get out of it if I do tell you? My name in the paper?" "Well, I think that can be arranged. We might even have a talk with the principal about your marks. I hear you are just above the line." "Would you really talk to Mr. Legory about me? Gee! that would be swell. Now let me think you asked, 'What is the Varsity Club, what is its purpose, and who are eligible to join?' It's an organization to promote better sportsman- ship, and to encourage the boys to participate in sports so they can receive a "T". You see, only boys who have been awarded "T's" can join. In case you are interested, the officers are: Tony Folino, President: Joseph Grande, Vice Presidentg and Steve Mikach, Treasurer. We also hold dances, candy sales, and sell pins whenever we can. There goes the bell. I had better hurry up and get to my classes. I hope I see you again. So long." .fr F I. , jig, . it 'yfls X . :x' fs Q X fx, Ax i'5:.., qw? ..., fi, rm- a i as M? ':i'-" 1, .. 1.

We came within smelling distance of the WsP.I.A.L. and within one game of winning the county championship. Our team had two sets of brothers, the Grandes and the Folinos. QMang was manager for the fourth year.D The team was composed of 25 boys, all of whom saw Uattive service". Fourteen of them received letters for playing twenty quarters, or half the total playing season. Nine of them were Seniors, two Juniors, and occasionally one or two Sophomores were in the starting lineup. Trafford won six games, dropped three, and tied Bell Township in a scoreless deadlock. In all the games played, every boy showed true spirit of sportsmanship and courage. A team like Trafford's stands out as a shining example of coopera- tion liglpting friendly rival teams. The bystanders helped to keep our team's spirits high by cheering them on from the sidelines. The attendance was good for all games, even though our new field was not ready for use. A few of the boys that shone during the year were: Anthony Folino, carrying the ball straight thru the lineg Guppy who kept the bench at 78 9 Edward Lawrence, running sensationally down the fieldg Joe Grande keeping a hole open: Jim Masterianna, brilliant end catching of passes, only to be hurt and miss most of the season. They are only a few of the players that helped to bring Trafford to a victorious season.

This is Mr. Keopka's second year as athletic director at T.H.S. He is responsible for bringing out the best in our football squad, our boys' and girls' basketball teams as well as various other activities. Mr. Koepka was the proud father of a new daughter, Nedra Jean. We are certain that when this young lady is herself a stu- dent at T.H.S. she will be as popular as her daddy is now.

The Tomahawks started off by beating Bell Township, then lost to Export, and came back to beat Plum Township twice in a row. Next the Tomahawks played two games with Sewickley, away and at home, and won both. They next lost to Penn Township but came back and won a second game. Then came a sensational upset. Youngwood was a lirst class team and in this game Trafford was held down by the Youngwood second team for three quarters but when the first string came in Traf- ford started to score. The Tomahawks won 21-18. This gave us a chance to compete in the county tournament only to lose to Ligonier 21-15. 40 Highlights from the Floor Trafford had an extremely good basketball season this year, as far as county records are concerned. All in all there were seven wins and ten defeats for Trafford but some of the defeats were at the hands of vastly superior schools. Pitcairn, our old enemy, got the best of us this season, defeating us at every try except one. However, we managed to hold our own with teams of our own class and then some. We defeated Bell Twp., Export, Sewickley, Plum Twp., Penn Twp., and made a sensational upset by defeating Youngwood 21-18. Youngwood was ex- pected to beat us by a wide margin, but Trafford came thru to win the respect for the Brown and White after all these years of submission. Trafford never came within the county tournaments before but after defeating Youngwood, they experienced the pleasure of playing lst class basketball with lst class teams. Our home and away games had a good attendance all in all, and we had a good supporting cheering section. The bystanders received a "yell" from Pitcairn which was at once introduced in T.H.S. as, " Our team is red hot!" Guppy was the fellow on the team who sat on the banking board and pushed the ball through. The Tomahawk team consisted of five shirfty, accurate fellows plus Guppy: Edward Lawrence, Joe Grande, Kenneth Koepka, joe Lenart, and Francis Grande. High scores were made by E. Lawrence, and F. Grande, who showed up well in the tournament making most of the goals. We can only hope for as good a season and as good a team next year. BASKETBALL . A ' X S X K T X if x X ... - i A EVM.

He had everything down pat when the girls' team was concerned. At the first game, Guppy showed up with a broad smile and a cheer when Trafford tackled Bell Township and bowed to them. The return match proved the girls needed more practice when Bell Township defeated Trafford again. But Guppy would always pat the girls' shoul- ders, commend them on their fine play, and wish them better luck next time. Luck was against Trafford when the Alumni Girls' Team walked off the floor victorious. Two games were scheduled with Franklin Township. The first game Trafford lost to Franklin, and the second game was cancelled because of weather conditions. After losing so many games the girls decided they would surprise everyone by winning the game scheduled with Pitcairn, at Pitcairn. This proved to be an exciting game when the score, at the end of the game, was tied 10-10. An extra three minutes were played when Miss Kerrigan came through with a foul shot, making the score 11-10 in favor of the Tomahawks. That evening Guppy treated the girls' team to a soda. In the return match with Pitcairn, the game ended in a deadlock. And so it ended--the last year of basketball to be played for Trafford High by the senior girls. But next basketball season Guppy and the girls will be back to "root" for an up and coming attractive and enter- taining group, The Girls' Varsity Basketball Team. 42 "We Hope You Liked It" After combing the entire building, calling frantically from room to room, in search of Guppy, we Finally found him, fast asleep, curled up on the cot in Mr. Koepka's office. Poor thing, he tried so hard to make your tour of our high school as interesting and humorous as possible that by now he's just completely worn out. He looks so peaceful and unpreturbed that, instead of awakening and reprimanding him for neglecting us, we have decided to introduce ourselves as best we can. We compose the staff of your "Reflector" this year,. Under the able guidance and supervision of our faculty adviser, Mr. McLeister, we have been able to bring to you another annual containing memoirs of our Alma Mater. We have been able to do so only with the assistance of our dear beloved friend Guppy. When we returned, exhausted from pounding the pavements in search of ads, Guppy had a foot-bath ready and waiting for each of us. When we felt discouraged, he cheered us up. And when it came to write-ups, he calmly suggested that we leave everything in his hands. The method he chose was that of a conducted tour of our entire high school, pausing here and there to describe our various activities, and interview teachers and students. We sincerely hope that the results are effectual. This year we have tried to bring comedy to you, using Guppy as a medium. It has been said, "Laugh and the world laughs with you". By laughing himself, Guppy hopes that at least a small part ofthe world is laughing with him. REFLECTOR G ,V I ,4' i A f l l 1 ,,,g Q X e e 1 .... ",, g . iiz .5 . V 'L REFLECTOR STAFF First row: G.

Member of Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation -eb: 50tl9 Anniversary -113+ The Reflector ALUMNI NOTES Keeping Step with the Grads This time, Guppy is certainly one up on you. He knows all, sees all, and has finally decided to tell all. . One afternoon, down at the ex-coke machine with a group of Senior girls, their favorite rendezvous, the subject of the Alumni was brought up. Well- here's where Guppy stood-out, because he hung around corners and had the habit of " eavesdroppin" on teachers. He managed to gather up many important bits of gossip concerning the Alumni.

So she very quietly gathered her papers and took her leave, allowing Guppy to recall fond memories and per- haps dream of what would happen in the next fifteen years. 58 l 9 ADVERTISERS Compliments of Harry E.
