N fix ' ' Tx 7 5, fda Xi X I .95 X 'xiii .lie Eva I' ' ?orewvrd The Tomahawk has been the symbol of all sports at Trafford for many years. From history we have learned that Indians, really peace loving people, had to be taught the use of the tomahawk. This is a rather confusing idea but since this is an age of confusion We have decided to use the Indian head rather than the scalping instrument as our symbol. The Indian Head represents Trafford graduates who have strong charac- ter, healthy bodies, and strong minds. An Indian head used to appear on our pennies but those issues are almost collectors, items today, perhaps the only value a penny has in these inflationary times. Another thing about Indians-While they did go on the war path, they also smoked the pipe of peace and buried the hatchet. Our school looks forward to the time when all Americans may follow the leadership of the Indians and be at peace with all peoples. 7 7a6le of Con ten tA INTRODUCTION Title ....,........,.....,..... ,.....,,., 1 2 Foreword .....,.....,.,...A .....,..., Table of Contents ..t,..,, .4.,,.... 3 Dedication .,......,.,., .......... 4 Administration ,. ....,,.... 5-6 Faculty .,....... ..,...,... 7 -8 CLASSES Senior Class History ..,...., ......,...... 9 Senior Class Pictures ....,......, ......... 1 O-15 Senior Class History fcontj ...i,.. .......... 1 6 Senior Class Prophecy ......,..... .....,, 1 7-18 Senior Class Will ....,...........,.............,.......,. 19-20 Commencement Program and gifts ...... ......, 2 1 Junior Class History .........,,...,......,.... ..,.,., 2 2 Junior Class Pictures .....,.,,i. .,.... 2 3 Sophomore Class History ,. ,... ...... 2 4 Sophomore Class Pictures .,..,..,.... 1 ..... ....... 2 5 7th, 8th 61 9th grade class histories ..,.,........,, 26 Freshman Class Pictures ,.......4.,...... ...,.. 2 7 8th Grade Class Pictures .,..... ....., 2 8 7th Grade Class Pictures ,......,. 4,.,.. 2 9 Snapshots ................,.,.......,............................. 30 CLUBS, ORGANIZATIONS, ACTIVITIES National Honor Society ......,..,..i...,..,,..,.....,... 32 Student Council .,..,...,.,.... .,.... 3 2 Tomahawk Stall ...,,.,, ....,. 3 3 Camera Club ..........,..,,..,.. ,.,..., 3 3 National Forensic league ..,,,.. ..,.... 3 4 34 Chorus ....,..,...........,,.,..,.. : .. .... ...

He is a living example of the qualities which Newman outlined in his "Defi- nition of a Gentleman? Mr. Kenyon is modest and humble. He never forces his viewpoint on another, yet he leaves no shadow of a doubt as to what his point of view is. He shows an intelligent insight when dealing with life's problems and his answers are based on deep thought: you can feel his sincerity. He encourages the backward pupil, he is merciful toward the foolish and kind to all. He is the sponsor of a quartet, the Camera Club and the Tomahawk. It is a distinct privi- lege for any student of Trafford Hi to be acquainted with Mr. Kenyon. Mr. Andrew Bryan Carnack Supcrvisiug Principal California S. T. C. Peniisylvuiiiu State College, B. S.

A s f luino In the month of September. 1947, we, the ugreeniesv stepped over the threshold of T.H.S. to begin a new life. This was a day that we'll never be able to forget. For, after waiting eight long years, it was like a dream come true. We knew that we would no longer be looked upon as babies, or be scorned for at- tending high school dances, or other affairs. We, the Class of '51 were now to be an active part of T. H. S. Our first social affair for the year was, of course, our class party. As most Freshman parties, it did not go too well. Most of the boys didnit know how to dance and the few that did just sat around and talked. We sat and listened to the music, and when the food was ready, we went upstairs to eat. At the close of the evening, we all agreed that we had had a good time. In October of the same year, Patti Haines and Patty Cole were added as the personable Freshmen to the Pep Club. But at the end of the year, Patty Cole moved to East Pittsburgh leaving a vacancy for a Freshman Cheerleader the following year. To attend the May Queen on May Day, our class elected as their representatives Bar- bara Holsinger, and Patti Haines. They wore gowns of yellow, and carried red roses. WVe must of course not forget our active class officers, Bill Morrow serving as president, Beverly Kopnitsky as vice-president, Patti Haines as secretary, and Paul Sorokach as treasurer. We entered this year with 61 of our own students, and acquired two new ones, namely Ioan Dashkewitz, and Earl Devine. We left to enter our Sophomore year with 54, leaving a few behind to help the teachers with the new greenies. Our Sophomore year was a great improve- ment over the previous one. We chose Bill Morrow, once again, to be our leader, and to serve under him were Peggy Gibbs, Ronald Peduzzi, and Lucy Asquino. We entered this year with 57 students, adding three new students, Barbara Klujaric, Clyde Minnis, and William Vergot. This year our class was, perhaps, the most active class to enter T. H. S. We were well represented in every field. On the football squad were the Peduzzi Twins, Patsy Paul, Mike Zeravica, Donald Vanisco, Frank Wengrzyn, John Schneider, John Nabuda, Russell Loutsenhizer, and Ed Banasik, with Randall Groth as Manager. The girls inter-class team, "The Amazonsf' as they were called by the boys, because of their daintiness, did very well by only losing one game, and being defeated for the cham- pion-ship by one point. To fill the vacancy left by Patty Cole, Lucy Asquino was chosen cheerleader. Of course we must not forget the two girls who added their beauty to the May Queen,s Court. They were Lucy Asquino and Anne Capets. During the year we had a few parties which were very successful. To end the year, we held a Wiener roast at Bill Vergotis home. Of course, it rained as it always does, but we had fun just the same. We left that year 55 strong to become the Mighty Iuniors. CContinued on Page 16D Asquino, Lucy ULOUU Peppy cheerleader . . .

Claw Hia tory CContinued from Page 92 As we entered our Junior year our main interest was the prom. To help us make this a success we chose James Brown as our leader. Russell Loutsenhizer served as vice-president, Peggy Gibbs, secretary, and Bill Vergot, trea- surer. Through our hard work we put on, in our opinion, the finest prom ever held at Traf- ford. Again our class was very well represented in sports. john Serafin, one of our great athletes, won second place in the W. P. I. A. L. TRACK MEET at Pitt Stadium. On the basketball floor we had Iohn Sera- fin, Frank Wengrzyn, Eddie Banasik, Iohn Schneider and Ronald Peduzzi. They did fair- ly well but not so well as the girls' interclass team which won the championship. As most other plays, our Junior Class Play was not very successful Hnancially. The title was "The Black Ghostv and Jean Traiicante and John Serafin had the leading roles. When the ballots for the May Day were counted the two happy girls were Peggy Gibbs and JoAnn Kromer. They made a lovely showing in their yellow gowns. As we look back on our junior year we think of it as gay, exciting and adventurous. As we "the mighty Seniorsi' climbed the steps of T. H. S. in September 1950 our only thoughts were of making this year our best. We got off to a good start by electing Ron Peduzzi our president, Bill Morrow, vice-presi- dent, Evelyn Mathias, Secretary, and Lucy Asquino, Treasurer. Although our football and basketball teams did not come out on top, we know that they played their best and didnit give up with- out a iight. For the second consecutive year our girls took the championship in interclass basketball. Since we were so busy trying to catch up on late briefs and themes we didn't have time for parties. But to make up for that we took a trip to Torrence. We lost a few boys on the way though but they caught up with us when we stopped at the police barracks in Greens- burg. We also took a trip to the Mellon Bank where each of us started a savings account with a silver dollar. Since none of us could see the value of saving money, we each wrote out a check to get it back. Other trips we took were to the courthouse and county jail. One of the highlights of the year was, of course, the May Growning. Patti Haines was I6 chosen May Queen with IoAnn Kromer and Anne Capets as her Attendents. Something new was tried this year in the way of putting on a Senior Class Play.

S. dis- covered a vast area of territory to be conquer- ed-namely algebra and Latin. In order to help us get through this wilderness we chose Marcia Gracion as president, Marcia nearly resigned her position when the class meetings used to get a little rowdy. Despite our rowdy- ism we managed to get through to the Sopho- more Mountains. This was really a tough journey for most of us fespecially the inter- class basketball teams.j We elected janet Matulia and Mildred Tarbuck as May Queen Attendants and they looked lovely in their pink gowns. We had a magazine sale for our funds were a little on the deficit side, however this idea didn't work out any too well. So, poor as we were, we advanced to our Iunior year, all raving and ranting, to make a successful prom for our fellow seniors. Our class president, Herky Asquino, encouraged us to bring in our back dues and Margaret Baric, being our newly elected treasurer, very efficiently took over the matters of book- keeping. We may have a shortage of funds but our class is also short of-boys too. That is the reason for having senior boys play the parts in our Junior Class Play, "All On Account Of Louellav in which Mary Stanisic and Dick Hydak had the leading roles. The other mem- bers of the cast were as follows: Bunny Galloro, Cookie Marshalek, Mickey Ludmann, Gertrude Bonde, Bill Vergot, Bill Morrow, John Ogle, Iohn Serafin, Gene Corl, Betty Koepka. Incidentally our class parties turned out with a bang! All girls, and oh yes, four or five boys showed up to eat. Representing our class in the athletic field were Ziggy, Dave, Iack, Sam, Carlheim, Herky, Tubby, Ogle, Turk, and Corl. On the basketball court were our part time players fthey only quit 3 or 4 timesj Ziggy, Dave, and Herky. Carlheim, Hydak, Dave, Ogle, Sam, and Tubby represented us on the track team. The girls also showed up in our class. They were Bigler and Tarbuck on the Girls Varsity-although they only had two games this season they displayed their talents well. Arlene Neale and Marcia Gracion were chosen May Queen Attendants by 'the class. Many of the Juniors played for the Band Concert. A solo baton twirling exhibition was performed by Marjorie McKee with a lighted baton. Quite talented, this girl! f So until next year when all of us talented people get into our final Qwe hope? year, we shall leave T. H.

Our Freshman year was the beginning of our newly acquired high school years. We must admit, we took it boldly. Our Freshman Class trip 'to Bushy Run proved to be quite exciting, since a few of the boys were chased by some mad man. We hope our picnic this year won,t be quite so frightful. Opening the hectic years we chose Mary- ann Mikan as our class president. We thank her very much for trying to keep our meetings orderly. Vice President was Evelyn Morrow, Barbara Keller as Secretary and Iames Sage was our trusty treasurer. Our treasury department is quite full we are proud to admit. We had a bake sale in Mandelis storeroom which proved to be quite a success. Although we had a difficult time collecting dues, we finally pulled through. In the sports field We contributed greatly to Mr. Trembath's quintet. The members are as follows: Eddie Lenart, Graham Grubb, John McCann, David Iosephic, Joe Mazur, Tom McHugh, and Bill Ogle. We are extremely proud of our quartet, "The Slip Slopsf, originators of the very popu- lar "We Love You Madlylv The mighty four are: David Iosephic, Joe Mazur, Eugene Patrick, and Graham Grubb. The girls inter-class team played excellent basketball, losing only one game and hoping to win the championship. As for the boys, we better not say because of their unusual talent for losing games. In the yearly May Queen crowning. Frances Stojakovich and Marion Harvey were chosen to represent the Sophomore Class by wearing yellow gowns and red and yellow roses. The festival proved to be quite colorful, Representing the Sophomores in the band are Maryann Mikan, Marietta DeFrank, Eugene Patrick, Violet Klimovich, and Graham Grubb. As Majorettes we have Frances Stojakovich and Dorothy Banasic. We send all our regards to Dorothy Banasic, who has been ill for a few weeks. We are hoping sheill have a speedy recovery. In the Pep Club, Anna Mae Nabuda and Marion Harvey are our peppy cheerleaders. We are proud to send our donation of Maryann Mikan to County Chorus. She had a very wonderful and interesting time meeting new friends and students. To aid the Iunior and Senior Prom this year, Frances Stojakovich, Marion Harvey and Violet Klimovich were hat check girls. This proved to be quite profitable, since each received 31.51 in tips.

Victor Capets was elected president, Norma Jean Bradley, vice president, Darlene Schrock, secre- tary, and Iuliann Bayko, treasurer. Our student Council members were Joyce Simmons, Gilbert Burkel, Delores Traiicante and Arthur Toocheck. Our first party was our Halloween Party. We had Steve Turchan's recordings. We all went home sleepy- eyed having much fun. In February we had our second social. It was a dance also. Thus another memorable party was chalked up for the seventh grade class. At the beginning of the year we acquired a new member, Patty Fundis. We want to thank Mrs. Harris and Mr. Siegel for their encouragement and advice and for sponsor- ing our parties during the year. To sum it We might say that our first year in the high school building was very successful. The seventh grade hopes for many more successful years. 951: tl: gr de Hi tory This year the eighth graders were further initiated into the nightmares of study halls, homework, and the art of avoiding it. At the beginning of the year we had a rather confusing class meeting, electing these officers: Presi- dent Buddy Calloro, Vice-President Edward Horanic, Treasurer john Beck, and Carole Ann Carnak, Secre- tary Eva Jane Bruno. Ruby St-eckler and Elaine Valcourt were our student council representatives. Our first party was a Halloween party. The boys were a little bashful at first but Mrs. Neil fixed that. Soon they were all dancing like little gentlemen. Of course there were trying times like Home-Ec for the girls when we sat watching the cookies burn. While the delicious odors from the home-ec department penetrated the high school the boys were down at shop class, making bookends and footstools that their families never used. Our last yearis president Billy Mahr, and another class-mate Tom Mathias moved away in the middle of the year, making our class two persons smaller. At the closing of the school year, we had our spring party, with the beautiful stag line that spent half of the time outside. However Mr. Shank, our professional dancer, danced with all the girls, which made them feel better. We are looking forward to becoming "Greeny Frogsf' and to being initiated into the Freshman class, next year. ?re Inman Hi tory We started our Freshman year with high hopes for the coming four years of high school. We elected as our president, Jim Walko, vice president, Dolly Czapor, secretary, Loretta Vaccaro and treasurer, Leonard "Peter Lorre" Colangelo. Our first party was in the first part of November at which we enjoyed delicious refreshments and danced to the melodious strains of Steve Turchanis record player. The second party was a bang up affair. It was held Feb. 15. The fun certainly didn't end when the party was over. By this time we were all too deeply absorbed in English I to notice anything around us, so we now skip to the end of the year which finds us minus a few of our companions. In the last week of school our combined history classes had a picnic at Bushy Run. This was really a wild aHair but having successfully dodged Indian Tomahawks all day we returned home safely. Throughout the year our class was prominent in the sports field, having contributed to football and basketball teams and the track teams and the baseball squad. Word of exemptions from the final tests spread like wild fire until we found that the disliked subjects were not included. As the year closed there was many a tearful eye as we looked hack on the fun and frolic of our Fresh- men year. ?re lumen lst row, left to right-I. Wallco, W. Henkel, D. Lintncr, R. Mathias, D.

This year the Honor Society started the practice of presenting gold pins to its Senior members. To raise money for the pins, NHS members sold peanuts at various high school functions and, with the Band, co-sponsored a Band concert. Senior Officers were elected at the second meet- ing of the organization. Earl Devine was elected presi- dent, Dolores Susang, secretary, Bill Morrow, Trea- surer. Initiation of Iunior members into the society was an impressive sight. Each new member lighted his small candle, signifying his scholastic life, from four larger candles signifying the motto of the NHS: Lead- ership, Scholarship, Service, and Character. Student Council The Student Council began this year as usual with the election of members, a boy and girl from each class to represent them. The purpose of this is to better relations between the students and ad- ministration. Should a serious difference arise be- tween a student and a faculty member, it may be pre- sented to the administration through the council. The officers of the organization are Bill Morrow, president, Bill Vergot vice-president, Barbara Hol- singer secretary, and Dave Josephic treasurer. This year the Student Council sponsored the Christmas Formal and the Christmas Decoration Con- test. First Row: R. Steckler, M. Schopp VV. Vergot, B. Holsinger, W. Morrow, D. Iosephic, D. Czapor, I.

Anyone who is interested in any type of speech may join the Forensic League. This year our Forensic League took several trips to other schools. We attended the Original and Humorous Declamation contest at Jeannette, and at Greensburg, Radio and Oral Interpretation. The Poetry Reading Bt Shakespeare contests took place at Trafford. After the contests, refreshments were served and members got a chance to meet and talk to other boys and girls their age. Altogether we enjoyed the meetings of the Forensic League very much and are looking forward to many more times together. S4 FORENSIC Sitting, left to right- B. Holsinger, M. Lud- mann, L. Consoli, M.

Ferri, has taken part in such activities as the Minstrel and the Variety Show. On Patrons, day the chorus gave a concert consisting of such songs as "You'll Never Walk Alonev and "Cindy,' in honor of George Washington's birthday. One of our chorus members Earl Devine wrote the continuity for George Wash- ington in Song and Story. For the graduation exer- cises the chorus sang "You,ll Never Walk Alonef' at the request of the Seniors, and "Our Fatherf, The Chorus raised money by selling candy at noon-time every day and by putting on a concert. Kane! The band, reorganized by Mr. Henry J. Ferri, has been very active for the last two years. The band attended all the football games this season, and did various formations at each game. After football season was over, the band was invited to go to McKeesport to march in their Christmas Parade. It rained that night so we stayed in the bus and played. Our majorettes and our Trafford High School Indian, Bill Vergot, marched in front of our bus. The Indian was a new addition this year and it was very appropri- ate to have him at the football games. Later on in the year the band put on a band concert which was very successful. We played various songs and one novelty song, Jack Dalton,s Ride, which the audience liked. At the end of the year the band gave to the senior members of the band jackets. The seniors that received them Were, Bill Vergot, Ann Capets, Peggy Gibbs, Lois Turchan, James Delia, James Brown, Rose Kerin, Barbara Holsinger, and Jean Traflicante. We hope to continue this in the years to come. During the year we found various ways to raise funds. We sold candy each afternoon and held a dance. With these funds we purchased music and seven new instruments. The band had a party to which the members of the band were able to invite a friend. It turned out to be a great success. Everyone had a wonderful time and plenty to eat. All the members of the band will receive letters, including the seniors. The band hopes to grow bigger and b-etter in the years to come. lst row: F.

The purpose of this club is to unite together in an effort to earn money for some sort of an award which the girls receive in their senior year. The organization, under the direction of Miss Remaley, raised money for their sweaters by holding dances for the students and also a bake sale. The girls that received sweaters were: Ann Capets, Peggy Gibbs, Hattie Boyd, Lois Turchan, Angie Cannillo, jean Traiicante, and Twyla Bigler. The sponsor, Miss Remaley also received a sweater. Uar :ty C ab This year was one of the busiest years for the Boy,s Varsity Club. The boys in the club started off the year by sell- ing taffy, after which they sold Christmas Cards, then they had a Variety Show, and finally they held dances. All the money went to the purchase of handsome white sweaters. The boys in the Varsity Club wish to thank Mr. H-eaps, the sponsor, for his full coopera- tion for without it, the year would not have been very successful. Miss Remaley, I. Traficante, T.

After the money was earned and the uniforms paid for, a faculty committee and two Senior cheerleaders elected Patti Reed and Frances Leflfler to the club for the next four years. Though the teams didn't win all of their games, these pep makers did their share to inspire them. Lucy Asquino and Shirley Bowery, two graduat- ing seniors, received varsity sweaters as a token of our appreciation for fine service. lee lllajv ette The Trafford High School Band is led by eight maiorettes, four of whom were chosen this past foot- ball season. Jean Traficante, who has been a major- ette for five years, is the leader of this group. jean, who is graduating this year will be replaced by Marcia Gracion, as head majorette. The majorettes this season held dances and bake sales to raise money to buy two new uniforms and a trophy for Jean. These girls have led the band at all the football games and appeared at various other performances at T. H. S. dum: I lll1nAtl-el Mr. R. L. Robinson coached the six end rnen in The Burnt Corker's Minstrel who were Rey and Ron Peduzzi, Jack Connor, Tom McHugh, Eugene Patrick, Peter Colangelo.

The Slip Slops sang two songs "I Had A Drearnf and "Evening By The Moonlightf, James Patrick Owens who kept interrupting Finally was allowed to sing "Me and My Shadowf, Mildred Tarbuck and LaVerne Consoli presented a skit about their first trip to New York. There were also two couples that did the Samba. 5192 Slap The Slip Slop Quartet consists of four boys: Eu- gene Patrick, Joe Mazur, David Iosephic and Graham Grubb. The Slip Slop Quartet was started this year. It was formed just to have fun at lunch hour. Since Mr. Kenyon disapproved of their singing in his home room, there was quite a bit of congestion in the room when they did sing. They finally convinced Mr. Kenyon to let them practice in the Tomahawk room. Then Mr. Kenyon bargained with them, that if they sang in the niinstrel, they would get their picture in the Reflector.

And what better setting could you have than a tumble down shack on the edge of a bog with Peggy Gibbs doing a iig and Kathleen, the Kilronans and their neighbors singing and the women talking of Leprechauns, Pookas, Ban- shees, and other fairy folk while the blessed quicken wood waves from the churn dash to ward off harm on May Eve. It is to Kathleen and the two American visitors that the May Queen in the person of Ceridwen, a moon goddess, appears from the bog. They alone witness the ancient rites of the cauldron of Ceridwen. The Irish hut of Act I and the back drop of the fairy sky with its luminous stars and the bog were the work of Edward Szniyd. These added immeasure- able to the fantasy called Quicken VVood written and produced by Miss Bierer. The rainbow-like gowns of the members of the May Queenls court, and the cute children who acted as crown, flower, and train bearers created the lovely picture.

M ' COACH ASSISTANT COACH EREMIC HEAPS 48 ?oot6all I9 0 Sea on The Trafford Tomahawks, Football team of 1950 showed john Serafin, Dave Robinson, Iohn Zigarovich and Iames Furimsky at ends, the guards were Rey and Ron Peduzzi, the tackles were Frank Wengryzn, Patsy Paul, and Russell Loutsenhizer, the center was Tubby Twardowski. The backfield consisted of John Schneider at quarterback, Mike Zeravica and Eddie Banasik at half backs, and Tony Asquino as the fullback. Football started off with a bang in the year of 1950 for the boys from the cellars of Old Trafford High under the hopeful eyes of Coach Mel Eremic and Tom Heaps. On September the 9th, the Vernon Bulldogs in- vaded the fields of Trafford, but were turned back as a beaten foe. The Tomahawks celebrated a 12 to 6 victory with Asquino and Serafin scoring the touch- downs. The highlight of the game was an intercepted pass by Serafin who traveled 55 yards for the final touchdown. In Trafford's next game, we found the Toma- hawks as the Invaders and there objectives, the Moun- taineers of Ligonier. A huge crowd witnessed the dedication of Ligonier's new field Saturday night, the 16th of September, with a shining victory for the fighting sons of Trafford. The score was 16 to 6 in favor of Trafford, with john Schneider and Tony Asquino scoring the touchdowns. Two points were scored by Trafford in the first half, with the whole line breaking through to smother the quarterback for a safety. The third game of the season took the Toma- hawks to Avalon on September the 23rd. The Toma- hawks were held to a scoreless tie, by the Avalon Panthers. Not till a week or so later did the boy-s find out that they were awarded the game, by the score of 1 to 0, because Avalon had an illegal player in the game. The next game was a heart breaker with the Tomahawks losing 14 to 13 in favor of Snowden. Early in the first quarter, Mike Zeravica scored on a dash from the five yard line. Tony Asquino made the second touchdown with a plunge of 2 yards. This proved to be the first loss of the 'season for the boys of Trafford. The fifth game took the Tomahawks to Wilmer- ding where a huge crowd witnessed a great battle which saw the Wildcats of Wilmerding edge Trafford 7 to 0. This game was played at night and for a while looked as though it might turn out to be a score- less tie. But near the end of the game, Wilmerding scored on a long pass. The next game was played at TraHord Stadium and showed Etna as the visitors. Etna came out the victors with a score 26 to 19. John Serafin, Mike Zeravica, and John Schneider scored the touchdowns. The seventh game was also played at the Trafford Stadium and saw Trafford nip Derry 14 to 0. Mike Zeravica scored the first touchdown, and John Serafin scored the second. At this stage of the season, Traf- ford had four wins against three defeats. The next game was played at Pitcairn on Mon- day, November 6, with everyone anxious about its outcome. The Pitcairn Railroaders were outplayed by the Trafford Tomahawks, but they were fortunate enough to squeeze out a 13 to 12 victory. Tony Asquino scored both touchdowns. His first was from the five yard line, the second from the 30 yard line. The final gam-e saw the Tomahawks go down to defeat with Penn Township, getting whipped by a score of 25 to 7. John Serafin scored the only touch- down. Trafford's record now showed four wins to five losses. This year the breaks seemed to go against the boys, and consequently dropped some games which could have been theirs with a little luck.

The Girls Varsity began their second season this year under the supervision of their coach, Miss Audrey Remaley. Although they only played five games, the girls were hard pressed and only won one of their games. That being their win over the Cirlis Alumni, who were a little out of shape. The main trouble with the girls was the lack of time for practice. They had a strong powerful team but they could not function correctly together. The girls played Export twice and they were defeated twice. They played Franklin once and they came out on the short end of the score for the third time in the row. They were beaten by the West Penn Nurses, but finally hit the victory trail, when they played against their former team-mates, the Girl,s Alumni. With the end of this season, the Cirl's Varsity Basketball team will be discontinued, because there is a lack of Girl,s Basketball teams around our district. The organization which will take its place will be the G. A. A.- Girl's Athletic Association. The C. A. A. has already been organized and will be put into full working order next year. Since the Girl's Varsity is fading out as a functioning group in Trafford, it would be only right if all would give them a round of applause for the great work they have done in the past. So, well done girls!! We hate to see you fade out of the picture. univr High Kmleetball T. H. S. OPP. T. H. S. OPP. 25 ............... Irwin ..,.,,.., .....,... 3 0 33 ,.,...........

Kin e Y Standing-R. Scales, I. Beck, E. Cigich, L. Colangelo, E. Horanic, R. Dobos, D. Hopkins, Coach Eremic The Trafford Junior High Basketball team wound up the season with ten wins and four losses. The four losses were to Irwin twice, and Wilmerding twice. The won and loss record indicates that the true quality of Junior high basketball is advancing at Trafford High. Trafford could have won at least two more games if the Jun- ior Tomahawks had been given a few breaks here and there. This yearis team had a well rounded group of boys who, under the coaching of Mel Ere- mic, improved greatly from last yearis show- ing. Almost everyone is interested in basket- ball at Trafford High, for they know that the sooner the boys are taught the fundamentals of the game, the better they will become in later years. Most all ambitious boys who are inclined toward basketball, go out and play when they are in seventh and eight grades. Here the fundamentals of the game are learned and here is the beginning of a championship team if all will cooperate. Returning to next years, Iunior High team will be Anthony Zigarovich, Eddie Hor- anic, Robert Scales, Iohn Beck, and Robert Peacock. Coach Erernic is hoping for a good season next year even though he will be losing some good boys such as Barry Brickel, Robert Mathias, and jimmy Furmisky. Leading scorers of last year's team were Barry Brickel and Robert Mathias, who, with the help of others on the team, turned in sterling floor performances. KaAe6all 1951 Semen L-R-First Row: I.

Furimsky, A. Zuzik, W. Morrow, B. Brickel, R. Peduzzi The Trafford Tomahawkis Baseball team opened their 1951 season with a 3 to 2 setback at the hands of Plum. The next game saw the Tomahawks down the Wilmerding Wildcats by the score of 6 to 5. Following this game, we saw the Pitcairn Railroaders invade the Helds of Trafford with the idea of winning, but they were turned back with a 15 to 2 lacing at the hands of the beloved boys from Trafford. A few days later, Trafford visited Pitcairn and proved their first victory was no flash in the pan, and Walloped the Pitcairn Railroaders again, this time to the tune of 8 to 2. At this stage of the season, Trafford had Won 3 and lost 1, the crucial game was coming up with the boys from Plum. This game was a iight to the Hnish with Plum coming out the victors, with a score of 6 to 4. Following this game, Trafford played Wil- merding again, and this time they lost by the score of 5 to 4. Batting honors were distributed among the different players on the team. Eddie Len- art was top pitcher with 2 wins and 1 loss. Coach Eremic is hoping for a better season next year and will have regulars, John Zigaro- vich, Dave Iosephic, Eddie Lenart, jimmy Wracker, Roland Galore, Tubby Twardowski, James F urimsky, Kenneth Kinley, and Iames Julian.

Even newly acquired sweat suits were not suflice to counter winter's chill, otherwise, our churn- ing legs of the cinderpath might have been the captors of even more laurels than were taken by our Toma- hawk trackmen. Trafford's junior High "Tomahawks" captured numerous medals in the Valley Junior High Championship Meet and gave hopes for possible cham- pions of the future. The singular home showing of track events was the annual Valley Championship Meet in which Traf- ford hosted seven teams. Wilmerding junior High was winner of the team trophy. A dual meet with Plum Township preceeded Traiford's entry into County and WPIAL competition and an inexperienced group of warriors almost upset Plumls seasoned team in a close 66-62 score, the Final relay event deciding the outcome of the meet. Trafford High's Varsity Track team under the great coaching of Tom Heaps, has grown in renown greatly through the efforts of its "Iron Mann-John "Yush,' Serafin-who had a strange talent for winning just about everything he entered. Yush won notice in l950,s Westmoreland County, WPIAL, and Penn- sylvania State Meetsg he then proceeded to repeat his performance in 1951, winning medals in the County Meet, winning the WPIAL 220 yard championship, sparking the 880 yard relay team of Serafin, Robinson, V-ergot, and Nabuda, who won P. I. A. A. recognition as the Western Pennsylvania Relay champions. The Relay team, with Croth and Ogle as alter- nates, and Yush, as an individual champion, repre- sented Trafford in the State Schoolboy Championship Meet held at Penn State College. "Yush,' once again flashed his spikes in champion form to win second place medal honors among the state's fastest schoolboysg actually, while running second to the 1951 PIAA champion Yush was clocked at a time of 22.7 sec. which unoflicially betters the standing WPIAL 220 yard dash mark. The 880 relay team also sped to a magnificent time of 1136.3 seconds but missed medal honors by but one place as two teams tied for state championship with remarkable times of 1134.1 seconds. Aspirants for the crowns of champions next year will be the returning warriors: Dave Robinson C100 yard dash, half-mile, S80 relay, broadjumpl, Billy Ogle Churdles, dashes, mile-relayj, Tom McHugh Chalf-mile, mile runl, Joe Mazur fshot, iavelinl, Gene Corl Cshot, discusl, Sam Godich Qjavelinj, John Carl- heim Cdiscusl, Richy Walko f440 mile relayl, Eddie Horanic Cdashes, mile relayl, and Sammy Draganac thigh jump, dashesl.
