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
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
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.

We dedicate 'the 1951 Volume of the
Reflector to Mr. George Kenyon, a scholar and
a gentleman. 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.

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
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
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

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-
Again our class was very well represented
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
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
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

In 1492 Columbus discovered America
but in 1948 the Freshmen of T. H. S. dis-
covered a vast area of territory to be conquer-

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-
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

bers of the cast were as follows: Bunny
Galloro, Cookie Marshalek, Mickey Ludmann,

John Ogle, Iohn Serafin, Gene Corl, Betty
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!

people get into our final Qwe hope? year, we

The Diaper Dans of "1935v have labori-
ously reached 1951. We reached this year
deserving all the credits due to the Sopho-
rnores. 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. David Josephic, Joe

in the high school building by having an election of
officers. 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.

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

The Trafford Chapter of the National Honor So-
ciety is composed of Junior and Senior students who
have received honor grades in their studies.
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-
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.
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.

The Camera Club, in existence for four years, has
been very active. To start the year the Camera
'iFiends" went on a hike near Trafford. To raise
money they held the "Mystery Dancev and the "Sadie
Hawkins Dancef' Later in the year they had a very
successful spaghetti supper dance, at which the
i'FiendsU and their so called girl and boy friends had
a marvelous time. With club funds they bought an
enlarger and a dryer. They experimented in copying
prints for exhibition at Open House.
The officers were, Pres. Pat Prines, V. Pres. James
Delia, Sec. Eva Jane Bruno, Treas. james Iulian.
The Camera Club sponsor is Mr. Kenyon.
WVith Mr. Kenyon as advisor and Bill Vergot as
editor, the 25 members of the Tomahawk Staff got
off to a good start. Assets from 15 business organi-
zations and the annual King 61 Qu-een of Hearts dance
which was held in February financed the paper.

The Trafford High School Chorus with a mem-
bership of forty-five and directed by Henry J. 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.
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.

The Girlis Varsity Club is made up of girls who
have played at least one year on the Varsity. 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.

The cheerleaders of Trafford High started the
1950 season all decked out in new uniforms which
were paid for by their efforts to raise money by dances
and bake sales. 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.

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.

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 very capable inter-
locutor Was Bill Vergot. Mr. Ferri directed the music
and played the accompaninients for both the chorus
and the end men. 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.
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. So
here it is.

When you have an Irish May Queen, consistency
demands an Irish May Day. 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
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-

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
The backfield consisted of John Schneider
at quarterback, Mike Zeravica and Eddie
Banasik at half backs, and Tony Asquino as
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
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
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
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
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-
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
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
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.

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-
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
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.

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

Once again the wintry blasts and spring rains
restrained the awakening actions of our short-clad
gladiators. 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
