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 C ass. 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.

MA!! 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- eration. 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- quests: I, Richard Aglietti leave my ability to get up so early in the morning to Jean Capets. I, Paul Artman, leave my sarcastic laugh to Wanda Lenart. I, Tom Babeo, leave my craze for arguing to Ralph Watts. I, Irene Banasik, leave my alleged fear of boys to Annamae Nabuda. I, Earl Bowden, leave my forwardness with the girls to Clyde Minnis. I, Leo Gorman, leave my height to Jimmy Delia. I, Eleanor Mayhan, leave my scholastic pro- ficiency to Bertha Lawrence.

I, Bill, "Nature Boyv Varsafsky, leave for the woods. I, Mae Snyder, leave my tight fitting basket- ball uniform to Angie Canillo. A I, Harry Mahr, leave my sandwich to Nor- man Mcindoe for next year. I, Wayne Holsinger, leave my baby face to Donald Mendicina. I, Pauline Horanic, leave to chase Rico. C am MA!!

We hereby nominate and appoint the class of 1950 as sole executors of this our last will and testament. omior .J474f5f0l"g 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 treasurer. 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 saidj. 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. omior Cjfaw First Bow-F, Sanders, Koloski, I. Drost, A. Ruffin, I. Cupcts, B. Mustriunni, P. Mzistriunni, M. Mussaro.

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- ively. 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- ness. 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- bara Kljucaric. On the track team we had S. Serafin and B. Lloyd. 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- ed. 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 lavender gowns. 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- give us? The year is over and although we are sorry to say we are no longer MWise Foolsf all that sorrow will turn to joy next year when We be- come the high and mighty Juniors.

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. Eighth Grade 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 classes. 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. Freshmen 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 filled with experience gained in the elementary grades promises to act as a solid base for the building these aarchitectsi' hope to accomplish- building strength in their bodies, knowledge in their brains, and the spirit of fairness in their hearts. 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 of life. 3 l"9:5Alf1fLOLIfL 641,155 First Row left to right fbottoml-J, Anthony, I.

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 N 43 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. 7 035 uardify Boy's Varsity Record T. H. S. ODD. 40 ....... South Huntington ,.....,.... 22 28 ..,..,....

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. Eugene Surniacz-Manager and publicity agent for Basketball.

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. 45 foanior uaraify omior 5 - eam Under the coaching of Mr. Siegel the Junior Varsity basketball team finished the season with a record of 6 victories against 8 defeats.

New talent, however, seems to be cropping up in the junior high grades and pro- mises a good team for the coming year. Front row, left to right-E. Len- art, D. Koepka, P. Turkovich, J. Robinson, J.

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 girl. 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.
