Hard as it was to believe, we were Fresh-
men on that glorious day in September of
1945, as we entered the halls of knowledge
at T. H. S. VVe filled up three rooms with 96
students eager to extract as much know-
ledge as possible from the faculty and all the
books on hand. The class was very active and
participated in many of the events and organi-
zations. Gloria Grande and Bernice Twar-
dowski were chosen to aid the Pep Club by
cheering our boys on to victory. Our Fresh-
man parties were successes despite the fact
that the upperclassmen ate our ice cream and
crashed our parties. Joann Zigarovich and
Diana Godich were chosen as attendants at
the May Day Pageant. We survived the
pranks and ill treatment by the upperclassmen
arid finally were promoted to the Sophomore
What a day that was when we returned
to the "padded cellsv to find that ten of our
number had left us. R. Stafford, S. Zigaro-
vich, W. Koepka, H. Scanlon, B. Minkel, S.
Vecchio, E. Cercone, W. Holsinger, Brickel,
D. Paul, D. Culp, and C. Dettis gave their
might and brawn to the football squad. We
really got Spring Fever that year. Almost
everybody lay down on the job, but a few
of the hardier stock donated their services to
aid in producing the wonderful operetta
"Blow Me Downf' Harry Mahr had the bari-
tone lead of Captain Kidd, while Frank Kerin
had the tenor lead of Bob, an English profes-
sor. Melva johnson and Olive Warden were
selected from amongst our fair lasses as at-
tendants at the May Queenis Court. School
finally drew to a close that year and we de-
cided that we really needed a long vacation.
After finally passing Miss Biereris Latin
Cfor which we had those wonderful helpers,
cheat slipsj and Mr. Lloydig Geometry, we
thought we were through with the heavy sub-
jects, but fear not, the junior subjects were
thrown at us as hard as ever. Class officers
were elected to govern us, the illustrious ones.
They were, Pres., H. Mahr, V. Pres. S. Vec-
chio, Sec., O. Warden, and Treas., D. Paul.
Our class had dwindled in size quite a bit
since our "Green Yearsv because some of our
boys went to serve Uncle Sam and a group
of the girls entered the sea of matrimony. The
big event of the year, the Prom, was placed in
our trusting and careful hands. VVe needed
money to pay for the Prom, so we eager bea-
vers sold magazines and produced a class
play, "One Mad Nightv and we really mean
mad. The actors were Toocheck, Surmacz,
Watterson, Marker, Holsinger, Kerin, Babeo,
Paleskv, Bantovich, Mayhan, Matulia, Horan-
ic, Lytle, and Zigarovich. Clyde Knightis or-
chestra played for the Prom. Gloria Grande
Left to Right-Sammy Vecchio, vice presi-
dent, Joann Zigarovich, secretary, Wayne Helsing-
er, presidentg Steve Zigarovich, treasurer.
and Eleanor Uhrrecht were our representa-
tives at the Queen's Court on May Day.
After staying three long years, each in a
different port of knowledge, we were finally
tossed mercilessly at the harbor gate of i'Port
Seniorf, By this time our class had dwindl-
ed to a mere 59. Fifty seven graduated. Due
to unusual conditions beyond our control,
Boody didnit quite make it and Rico was lured
away by a coal mine. The officers that we
elected were: Pres., VV. Holsinger, V. Pres.,
S. Vecchio, Sec. Zigarovich, Treas., S. Zig-
arovich. The girls just loved home eco-
nomics. Sweetie Crandall ig still trying to
make muffins. The boys liked shop so well
that Mr. Siegel was forced to eliminate some
of the boys because they just couldnit seem to
follow directions. Wasnit chemistry class real-
ly something? We just loved those small
explosions and the wonderful odors we cre-
ated. The class put on the play, "Uncle Fred
Flits Byf' The roles were taken by Holsinger,
Surmacz, Toocheck, McMunn, Kerin, Horanic,
Babeo, Lytle, Mertz, Murray, Watterson, and
Matulia. Gloria Grande was crowned our
"grande, May Queen and Joann Zigarovich,
attired in green, and Eleanor Uhrrecht, wear-
ing a pink gown, were her attendants. Can you
imagine Gloria portraying the part of a saint?
There were reported fits of hysteria during the
last few days of school, but it was just the
seniors. They finally would be unshackled
and set free.
Amid great pomp and circumstance the
seniors marched down the aisle to receive
their diplomas. We had a time fitting every-
one with caps and gowns. Bemember how nice
Leeis cap sat on the back of his head? We
were given our diplomas and were pushed out
of the harbor of safety into the sea of life to
fend for ourselves.

The Senior Popularity Poll conducted by the Tomahawk in which both
the high school and the junior high school took part, showed the following results:
MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED
We, the graduating class of the Trafford High
School, for the year 1949, being of sound mind
and good judgment, do hereby make, execute,
publish and declare this our last will and testa-
ment, in manner following, and do individually
and collectively, any and all former promises
made without due deliberation or careful consid-
First, To Our Parents, who have made school
life possible, we bequeath our life-long love and
devotion. VVe realize that it has not always
been an easy matter to keep us in school. Our
parents. have denied themselves pleasures and
often necessities of life in order that we might
have educational advantages. We bequeath to
our beloved parents our most sincere thanks for
their timely assistance in times of trouble and
distress, even though they did not always have
the correct solutions to the problems in math.
Second, To Our Faithful Teachers, we bequeath
our heartfelt thanks for their patient guiding
hands even though they were laid on a trifle
heavy at times. No doubt, there have been times
when they felt the results were not worth the
effort and sometimes they may have even suspi-
cioned that certain members of the class would
never be able to make their grades. We owe
much of our educational progress to their untir-
ing efforts. Perhaps we have often been thought-
less and careless, but in the years to come we
will appreciate their efforts more and more.
Third, To Our Kind Hearted Principal, we be-
queath also our many thanks for his keen fore-
sight and strength that enabled him to keep us
close to the line even though we were wilfull and
contrary at times. We bequeath him the plea-
sure of guiding other classes safely through the
school course to honorable graduation.
Fourth, To The Honorable School Board, we be-
queath best wishes and praise. They have given
unstintingly of their time and judgment, and we
honor them for their wisdom and splendid man-
agement of the school affairs and trust they will
feel that their efforts have not been all in vain.
And individually we make the following re-

We hereby nominate and appoint the class
of 1950 as sole executors of this our last will and
As our class approached the huge, ominous
building looming before us our group wondered
just what lay ahead of us. We were entering
the massive portals known as Trafford High
School where we have been sentenced to four
years of hard labor for repeated mental cruelty
to the faculty, for the last eight years. We shuf-
fled into the Building and were appointed to two
different cells . . . Mr. Kenyon was head guard of
one cell and Mr. Cibulas of the other. We elect-
ed a committee to represent us. Robert fdonit
spell my name with the ic? Marshalic was our
president and there were also three other officers
whom we seem to have lost record of. We had
quite a bit of fun that year at our class parties
and our two cell keepers helped us tremendously.
Jane Drost and Violet Olinzock were chosen as
Freshmen attendants. Betty Zigarovich and F lo-
rence Pogue were our cheerleaders.
Next year after having been paroled for
three months we landed back in the abuildingi'
with a higher status and were known as Sopho-
mores. Mr. Faulk, the new head warden, had
been appointed in our absence and now welcom-
ed us at the door. Filing through the familiar
halls we realized how much we dreaded to be
back. Having been briefed on our discipline
rules we elected Margie Lawrence as our presi-
dent, Iohn Scales, vice-president, Florence
Pogue, secretary, and Joe DiCesare as our honest
Our class contributed many boys to the
prisonis basketball and football teams and the
Sophomore girls nearly dethroned the mighty
Seniors in the interclass basketball games. We
chose two lovely May Queen attendants, Betty
Zigarovich, and Florence Pogue, to grace the
royal court. Mr. Lloyd and Mrs. Buehner helped
our class so much that we were granted another
parole for good behavior. That summer found
us enjoying our freedom outside the "building"
We began our third year of the sentence in Sep-
tember as Juniors. We elected to the important
job of leading us through the new year, Iohn
Scales as President, Iames Leffler, vice-presi-
dent, Amelina Buffo, secretary and Josephine
Gynkar as treasurer. Our Iunior football play-
ers, Scubby Cavalancia, Lefty Leffler, Eddie Er-
win, Lou Bucar, Muggs Marshalic, Stush Ban-
asic, Don Todaro, Bob Mikan and Bill Fitz-
simmons helped the team to win many games.
The Junior-Senior class party finally came off
and everyone had a good time. Basketball sea-
son arrived and to the Boys, Varsity, coached by
Mr. Trembath, was added the services of james
Leffler, john Scales, Paul Bucar, Scubby Cava-
lancia and Billy Snopko. The Junior girls on the
Girls' Varsity were Margie and Bertha Lawrence,
Jean Capets, Florence Pogue and Irene Lovre.
Gerry Gracian was the Junior manager. Both
teams had a fine season. The Iunior boys inter-
class teamis games with the Seniors and their
upset by the Sophomores kept the crowd on the
edge of their seats until the final whistle. The
boys ended up in a tie with the Seniors and went
down to defeat by one point in the playoff.
The interclass girls were defeated by the
Sophomores and Seniors and decided to hang
up their basketball togs and call it a season.
After basketball season the Iuniors produced a
great play, "Crazy Housefi Florence Sanders
and Lois Smith were Iunior attendants to the
lovely May Queen, Gloria Grande. Dolores Gel-
lich, Mary Ann Beck, and Jean Capets were gyp-
sies watching for the beacon on the Brocken.
To help finance the big event of the year, the
Junior and Senior prom, we sponsored bake sales
and dances to raise money, and finally the big
day arrived. The gym was decorated as a "Silver
Bally. We danced to the music of Tommy Car-
lyn. It stopped raining one day through the last
week of school for the junior picnic at Bushy
Bun. The students amused themselves playing
softball, badminton, and croquet. Some just
sprawled out on the ground and rested while
other brave pioneers set out to explore the sur-
rounding territory. Sage and Dettle uncovered
an abandoned mine and an unopened coke bottle
which they had bought at an Indian village fthey
By the time Robbie got a fire started every-
one was starved and made short work of the hot
dogs and the tub of lemon blend. Everyone had
a good time and came home sunburned and still
curious about Sageis wigwams. The year had
come to an end and now we look forward to
being the Seniors of 1950.

In the early days of our career as Sopho-
mores, we were still a bit timid, but as the days
turned to weeks we finally came out of our shells
and rose as one of the most active classes in the
We chose as our chief executive Bill Mor-
row who once more proved to be an efficient
leader. As members of his cabinet we chose Peg-
gy Gibbs, Ronald Peduzzi, and Lucy Asquinog
vice president, secretary, and treasurer respect-
To fill the place in our hearts made by the
departure of our two peppy cheerleaders Patty
Cole and Patty Haines, came Barbara Kljucaric
and Bill Vergot from Patton Twp., and an old
classmaate from way back, Clyde Minnis, who
hailed from Swissvale.
We were well represented in the musical
and athletic fields as well as in many of the var-
ious clubs and activities as proof of our active-
On the football squad were the Peduzzi
twins, Patsy Paul, Mike Zeravica, Donald Vanis-
ko, Frank Wengryzn, John Schneider, John Na-
buda, and Russel Loutsenhizer. Randall Groth
was a manager of the team.
On the Basketball floor we had representing
us John Serafin, Eddie Banasik, and John Schnei-
der on the Varsity, and on the J. V. there were
Ron Peduzzi, Bill Vergot, Frank Wengryzn,
Frank Stanisic, Jimmy Brown, John Schnieder,
Eddie Banasik and John Nabuda.
The girls chosen for the Varsity were Lois
Turchan, Hattie Boyd, Angie Cannillo and Bar-
On the track team we had S. Serafin and B.
On the baseball team Ron Peduzzi, Mike
Zeravica, Bill Morrow, John Schneider and Frank
Wengryzn added their athletic ability and Rey
Peduzzi offered his brains to be scorekeeper.
The girls inter-class team CThe "Amazona',
as the boys so fittingly called themj played ex-
cellent basketball, losing only one game and then
only to be defeated of the championship crown
by the Seniors with the heartbreaking score of
17-16. The boys however did not do so well,
winning only one of their games and losing three.
Pat Cole's vacancy was excellently filled by
Lucy Asquino, another cheerleader is to be pick-
In the Band were J. Brown, A. Capets, P.
Gibbs, M. Murray, L. Turchan, B. Holsinger, and
T. Mikan. Bill Vergot, B. Lloyd, B. Morrow and
J. Serafin served as color guards. Our high-
stepping majorette was Jeannie Traficante, who
will lead the band for the remainder of her
high school years. '
A. Capets, J. Brown and T. Mikan lent their
musical talents to Mr. Shank,s swing Band.
The Student Council representatives were
Barbara Holsinger, Billy Vergot, Evelyn Mathias,
and Bill Morrow.
Lucy Asquino and Anne Capets were the
happy girls when the votes were counted for
May Queen attendants. They made a pretty
picture as they marched up the aisles in their
Ron Peduzzi was the only Sophomore end
man in the Burnt Corkeris Minstrel, and he was
a corkerl Some of the people are still wondering
how he managed to lean out almost parrallel to
the floor without falling.
We sure put on a swell chapel program this
year. It was the talk of the school for a week.
And how can we forget that Sophomore
Masquerade Ball? Both of our parties turned
out successfully and every one had a great time.
Do you remember, we even got the boys to do
some folk dances.
To conclude the year we had a wiener roast.
It of course rained, but that didn't stop us! We
just sat in the rain and had twice as much fun.
We set a record these past two years. We
got all of our Freshman dues and most of our
Sophomore dues paid.
Looking back over the year brings back
many pleasant memories. Maybe not for Miss
Wilson and Mr. Kenyon though, we nearly drove
them frantic with our spit balls. Will they for-

We, the seventh graders began the year by
having our first presidential election. The offi-
cers were as follows: Jackie Pratt, president, Ed-
die Krcelic, vice-president, Patty Erwin, secre-
tary, Mike DiCesare, treasurer.
The Student Council members were Jackie
Pratt and James Walko.
In October we had our first party of the year
with Mr. Shank's orchestra playing for us.
Then came the Christmas Party with all its
pomp, ceremony, and mistletoe! We had Steve
Turchanis recordings for this party.
Not that we liked parties or anything like
that, but we did have two more, the Valentine
party and a picnic at the Gun Club.
In the middle of the year Dorothy Harvey
and Charles Wilson left us. Soon after that we
gained two new students, Patty Prines and
Joyce Denton. At the end of the year we lost
another student, Doris Guynn.
Miss Barr left us due to serious illness and
everyone was sorry to see her go.
After a happy summer we returned' to school
anxious to try out the long awaited Home Eco-
nomics and Shop classes. We started our hectic
year by having an orderly election of class offi-
cers. As President we chose Maryann Mikang
vice-president, David Josephic. As our Treasur-
er we chose Jim Wracker and Vincent Morocco
as Secretary, although not a speck of minutes can
be found, written in his ulegiblev hand writing.
Eddie Lenart, David Josephic, Jimmy Ten-
ney and Joe Mazur proudly represented our class
on Junior High Varsity.
And the chapels we had! Such acting or
shall we say promoting? Remember how lovely
Jim Tenney looked in Mrs. Neilas strapless eve-
ning gown, not to mention Pfs popular imita-
tions. They clapped so long and loud for us that
we surely thought we must be good, but soon
found out that they just wanted to get out of
We had a few prize winning people who
carried away the honors and the prize money in
the Fire Prevention and Citizenship Essays.
Our contribution to the Minstrel was P.
Owens, who received several encores for his be-
loved c'Mamief' Miss Murf has called our girls
'idearsn many a time for helping clean up, and
Mr. Seigel surely wouldn't have enjoyed school
this year if it hadnit been for our boys.
The 'idiapered darlingv of 1934 entered the
regal halls of T. H. S. this year with all pomp and
splendor due scholars of their standing. A past

grades promises to act as a solid base for the

their brains, and the spirit of fairness in their
David Robinson alone entered the T. H. S.
hall of fame as a Letterman in Track, his en-
deavors as a half-miler and relay man were in-
valuable. Dave also, along with Anthony Ban-
asic, was a medal-winner at the Valley Junior
High Track and Field Championship Meet.
Moving from the scene of sports to that of
club activities we again find many of the F rosh
class occupying key positions. Jack Connor
stood out among the grease paint Dramatic
Group showing his talents as an End Man in the
Minstrel and an annoying Ukid brotherv in "A-
Date With Judyf, The two songbirds of the
Class of 52, Josephine and Lexine Carter, were
outstanding as vocalists for the school orchestra.
Others from the class played in the orchestra or
school band, those playing in the latter were led
by twirling cuties of the class, Marcia Gracion,
Arlene Neale, and Marjorie McKee. Chosen as
cheerleaders to lead our teams to victory were
Mary Jane Marshalic and Irene Litwin.
Moving on to the path of a scholastic
achievement we see consistent Honor Roll
Award being taken by Mary Jane Marshalic,
Marcia Gracian, Ann Behe, Wilma Meagher,
Josephine Zyhowski, and Margaret Baric.
The Freshman Class Assembly was out-
standing during the school year. It followed the
pattern of radiois "Di: I. and gave to the con-
testants and audience a memorable hour of
laughter and information concerning the school,
the faculty, and the students. '
By now these gangling guys and gals have
weathered their first year of high school activity
and have matured to proportions with which
they will proceed to a higher rung of their ladder

The Trafford Tomahawks completed a fair-
ly successful season which showed a record of
five wins against five defeats. New faces were
seen in the Trafford coaching lines as head coach
Melvin Eremic, assisted by Thomas Heaps began
their first season coaching the Tomahawks.
The strong Trafford eleven was edged by
Brentwood in their opening gam-e under the
lights bythe score of 20-7. The Eremic men put
up a tremendous fight against the class A team
and made them know they were in a game till
the final whistle.
The following Saturday Trafford bounced
back and defeated Ligonier in their league com-
petition by 12-7. But again Trafford was set
back by Rankin the next week by the score of
7-6. This, however, couldnit keep the Trafford
boys down as they charged back with a decisive
victory over Youngwood, 14-13.
Then on Saturday, October 9, on their own
home grounds, the Tomahawks showed their
power and game spirit as they came from behind
and upset the highly favored East McKeesport
team by 20-12. This will be the unforgettable
game which brought many spectators out on to
the playing field protesting several disputed de-
cisions by the referees.
The following week under the lights, Traf-
ford met with defeat again at the hands of Mt.
Pleasant by 19-6. Although the next week in
the first night game ever played on the Trafford
Stadium, the Tomahawks won a thriller from
Penn Township by the score of 21-20. Not giv-
ing up for a minute, the Eremic men rolled over
the highly touted Derry Borough eleven, 14-7
and eliminated them from the undefeated ranks.
The last two games of the season proved fa-
tal to the Trafford team as they dropped both
games on wet and muddy fields. The first was to
Pitcairn 20-0, followed by Wilmerding, 14-0.

The faithful Trafford rooters expected great things of
the 48-49 basketball squad and the team did not let them
down, taking Sec. 25 honors with a 7-1 record. Coached by
Dick Trembath and Ray Siegel the boys set an impressive
record, winning the first four games and winning 5 out of
6 before league competition started.
In league play Trafford took the lead early, defeating
Bell Twp. and Saltsburg. After losing a non-league game
to VVilmerding, the Tomahawks never lost again until the
county tournaments and W. P. I. A. L. playoffs.
Leffler led the lettermen in scoring with 246 points,
followed by Koepka 237, Gorman 208, Zigarovich 93, Scales
81, and Serafin 27.
Returning lettermen are Leffler, Scales and Serafin,
who will be assisted by Malley, Bucar, Cavalancia, Snopko,
Wengryzn, Banasik, and Snyder. These boys will vie for
honors in a new section next year. They will be playing
East McKeesport, Pitcairn, Wilmerding, East Pittsburgh,
Classport, and Elizabeth.
We wish to salute three great stars who graduated this
year, Wayne Koepka, Leo Gorman, and Steve Zigarovich.

The Trafford High School Girl's Varsity Team has completed a fairly
good season this year. With Mr. C. R. Schrock as the competent coach, at the
helm they were able to steer through eight games with only two defeats.
The girls all cooperated and got along fine. They had excellent team work.
Both the guards and forwards should be given credit for the good team-
work. The regulars at the guard positions were Ioan McMunn, Irene Lovre, and
Florence Pogue, not to mention the much other up and coming Varsity material.
The team was handicapped by the danger of a trick knee to one of the
experienced members of the team, Willa Mae Boyd, which kept her from complet-
ing the basketball season.
The Seniors on the team who are leaving are Gloria Grande, Bernice Twar-
dowski, joan McMunn, Mae Snyder, Willa Mae Boyd, Phyllis Traficante, and the
capable manager Lorena Matulia.

Spring is the time for flowers and beauty and on the
evening of May 3 a beautiful spectacle greeted the eyes
of the audience in the Trafford High auditorium. Gloria
Grande, a lovely dark haired senior was crowned Queen
of the May. Her senior attendants were Joann Zigaro-
vich who wore a green gown, and Eleanor Uhrrecht who
wore a pink colonial type gown. Lois Smith and Flor-
ence Sanders, the junior attendants were arrayed in a
pale blue while the Sophomores, Anne Capets and Lucy
Asquino wore orchid. Gloria was crowned by Joann
Peduzzi, last yearis May Queen. Four first graders also
took part in the crowning: Bonnie Ogle and Vincent
Matulia carried the Queenis train. Timmy Erhart was
the crown bearer and Patricia Del Rosso was the flower
In the short play, which was written and directed by
Miss Bierer, Gloria Grande played the part of Saint Wal-
purga, daughter of an English king who came to Ger-
many and spent her life fighting against the pagan beliefs
of the heathen. A band of gypsies consisting of Frank
Kerin, Maryann Mikan, Mary Ann Beck, Dolores Cellich,
lean Capets, Bill Vergot, Betty Petrina, and Melvin Rabo
came to watch for witches on the Brocken, a rocky moun-
tainous area in Germany. Saint Walpurga appears with
Jrer aitendantsand teh. tlme. gvpsies thai thege ag no
witches and that the fires on the Brocken which were
set by her are fires of love. The soloist was Barbara Hol-
