I - 1 DEDICATIO Memor Et Fidelis To the Trafford boys who have entered the armed services of their country we dedicate this 1952 issue of The Reflector. We are proud that in this highly industrialized corner of the arsenal of democracy, honeyeombed as it is with factions subversive and coercive, that Trafford boys still believe in the American way of life so ardently that the cause of freedom, the relieving of the down- trodden and enslaved peoples is yet a rallying cry. We rejoice in the return of the many who have served their country willingly and faithfully and who once more are taking their places in our community life. We grieve for those who in the line of duty have been wounded both mentally and physically. YVe pray Cod to heal their wounds and remove all bitterness from their lives. We revere the memory of those who gave their lives in that last full measure of devotion, those whose brothers and sisters are our schoolmates. May they remember the devotion of these lost to us, and. through rainbows made from their tears, may they see that bright tomorrow, that day we are all striving for when a free people shall dwell in a peaceful world. To the memory of these who have served us we will always be faithful. 4 Indiana S.'li.C., B.S. in Ed. Unixvrsity of Pittslnlrgh M. lid. Cmitixlllrzl Ciillfiliilill alt NIR.

V ice President Anthony Asquino ,, In the fall of '49 our "Alma Mammyv was blessed with 57 original udiapered darlings" of '34 who with love in their hearts and brains in their heads sought to prove to upper class- men and teachers that they could conquer Latin, algebra, and English. To lead us through this new year we chose Marcia Cracion as President, and for some reason or other we can't remember the others. Those meetings proved that Marcie Cracion had the most powerful voice in the class! Chosen to lead our teams to victory were Mary Jane Marshalek and Irene Litwin. Others from the class played in the orchestra or band, those in the band were led by the twirling cuties of the class, Marjorie McKee, Marcia Gracion, and Arlene Neale. The two songbirds for the classg Josephine and Lexine Carter, were outstanding as vocal- ists for the school orchestra. jack Connor stood out among the grease paint dramatic group showing his talents as an End Man in the Minstrel and as the annoy- ing "Kid brother" in "A Date With Judy." .. President VVe thought our Freshmen parties would be Hops. But when the food was brought out, with everyone grabbing and gulping, they soon proved to be a huge success. VVhat would those boys do without the girls?? Our Freshmen year will be an everlasting memory in all our minds. It was the year when the school system was partially changed and also no freshmen attendants were chosen to honor the May Queenis court, which disap- pointed the girls. Coming into our Sophomore Vear we found that we lost quite a few of our members. Four of the fellows joined the service and the one girl, Elizabeth Wilson, moved to lean- nette. That left a total of 15 boys and girls. No one can say that the boys had the say so in the class, Elected by the members of the class were Herky Asquino, Presidentg Dick Hydak, Vice Presidentg Betty Koepka, Secretaryg and last but not least Paul Turkovich as our Treasurer. Speaking of Paul Turkovich we suggest that he take a course in bookkeeping! ASQLHNO,ANTHONY "Herky" Football . . . Baseball . . President of the class , . . Stage Crew . . . Minstrel . . .

Our first venture into the business world was a magazine sale which did not net large profits. In fact, no profit at all! But with bigger hopes and ideas we managed to hold a bake sale and were shocked at the money we made! The scholastic honors were held by Jose- phine Zyhowski, Margaret Baric, Marcie Cra- cion, Cookie Marshalek and Dick Hydak. The boys in the class weren't too ambitious. The May Queen attendants for that year were Mitzi Tarbuck and Janet Matulia who added beauty to the May Queen's court. Towards the end of the year we found out that we were almost bankrupt due to the fact that no dues had been paid. After the three month vacation we came back full of pep and energy, eager to raise 1noney!! With the aid of the Senior boys we man- aged to put on our Junior Class Play "All On Account of Louellaf' Bunny Calloro and Richard Hydak held the lead rolls of the play. Mary Jane Marshalek played the part of a typical kid sister, while Mildred Ludmann was the old maid aunt. We vowed next year to have an all girl cast. We just donit have any Clark Cables!! The prom presented our next problem. We still had fifteen boys and thirty-three girls. Unless something was done every boy would have to take 215 girls! After many battles with Mr. Robinson our class held the first open Prom in the history of Trafford High! We danced to Buddy Leeis orchestra and everyone vowed Qwhile arms were being twisted! that they had a wonderful time. On the football field the Juniors offered Herky Asquino, Tubby Twardowski, John Ogle, Paul Turkovich, Gene Corl, John Zigaro- vich, Dave Robinson, Jack Connor, Sam Godich, and John Carlheim. In basketball our pla ers were John Zigarovich, Dave Robinson, and,Herkv Asquino. Tubby Twardowski, Sam Codich, Dave Robinson, John Ogle, Dick Hydak, and John Carlheim were on the track team. On the Cirlis Varsity we had the ruflies of the class. Twvla Bigler, Mitzi Tarbuck, Jose- phine Carter, and Ann Behe. The Junior attendants for Mav Queen were Arlene Neale and,Marcia Cracion. For the Valentineis Day Dance Dick Hydak and Marcie Gracion were elected King and Queen of Hearts. Ah! finally after three years of long waiting we became the mighty Seniors of Trafford High. Once again we elected Herky Asquino, President, Mary Jane Marshalek, Vice Presi- dent, Betty Koepka, Secretaryg and Wilma Meager, Treasurer. We started another first by having the yearbook come out before graduation. But we'll have to find a way of getting around to the debt. The only plans made were having an auction and that only got as far as talking about it. Bunny Calloro and John Ogle carried the leads in the Senior Class play "Don't Darken My Doori' and proved that they were tops in acting. In the field of sports Herky Asquino, David Robinson, Bernie Twardowski, John Zigarovich, Gene Corl, and Jack Connor show- ed their talents in football. John Zigarovich was the only Senior on the Basketball team and proved mighty helpful to Mr. Trembath and the Team. We had a wonderful class party. Eating, dancing, and having pictures taken with every- one looking as crazy as ever. We also took a trip to Torrcnce. We had to explain to some of the attendants that some of us were really studentsC?J at Trafford. We promised not to mention it but Vernie Consoli ate all the way up and all the way back! Jack Connor displayed his talents as an End Man. He did his clowning on the stage for a change. Herky Asquino proved to be a very capable interlocutor. A few more of our seniors contributed to the success of the minstrel bv singing in the chorus. Herky proved to all of us that he was still the biggest brown noser for the year of 152. Sam Codich was the Class joker and from the last reports Jack Connor and Paul Turko- vich were in a neck to neck race seeing who could talk the loudest and break the most test tubes in Chemistry class. Ah, those were the days when everyone was trying to blow up the place or else burn someone with a bunsen burner. Mitzi Tarbuck was elected May Queen and Arlene Neale and Janet Matulia were elected Senior attendants. We close now saying that we have really enjoyed our teachers and classes. We all know that we'll miss everyone including Mr. Schrock and we'll treasure the wonderful memories? We end this with just one comment: We entered our Freshman year with our pockets full and our heads empty. We now leave our Senior year with our heads full C?! and our pockets empty, GR DE CHOOL FACULTY VESTA B.

MARSHALL Greenslnirg High School Indiana State Teachers College Duke University University of Pittsburgh Second Grade UNIOR CLASS HISTORY The Shrimp boats are coming and so are the Juniors coming to the throne as Seniors. We have notoriously achieved this honor after striving for eleven years to reach the end of our goal. As 4'Young Saplingsi' we must admit we had a very striving class. VVe started this hectic year by breaking in two new teachers, Miss Smith and Miss Remaley. Our parties were quite exciting and will go down in history as being very vivacious. Our Freshman year was the beginning of our newly acquired high school years. We are now convinced we took it boldly. Opening our Sophomore year we elected class officers and commenced to build up our treasury department. Our bake sale added much to our petty Fort Knox. This was the year of the immortal Slip Slop Quartet. We will never forget their quivering in the min- strel. They finally pulled through with high honors. We were proud to contribute Marion Harvey and Frances Stojakovich to the May Queen Court. The girls were very successful in inter-class basketball that year winning the championship, while the boys contributed their talents to the Varsity. We were also proud that year to send Maryann Mikan as our donation to County Chorus. At the beginning of our present year we chose as President, Evelyn Morrow, Vice President, Bill Ogle, Secretary, J, P. Owensg and Treasurer, James Sage. We wish to thank the officers for their co-operation. To earn greenbacks for the annual prom, we sold magazines which proved not too suc- cessful. Also, we held a dance which was profitable and sold Christmas wreathes. Representing the Student Council were four capable students: Dave Josephic, Presi- dent, Jim Wracker, Vice President, Maryann Mikan and Mary Jean Ruffo. Chosen by popular vote Maryann Mikan and Mary Jean Ruffo represented the Junior Class in the May Queen's Court. On the gridiron we were proud to have donated our talent. Among those were: Tom McHugh, Dave Josephic, James Kelly, Joe Mazur, James Sage, Delmar Koepka, James Majernik, Jim Owens, John Kerin, Bob Smeltz, and Jim Morocco. WVe are looking forward to a successful season next year. Continuing their position as majorettes we have Dorothy Banasik, and Frances Stojako- vich. Marion Harvey and Anna Mae Nabuda are our peppy cheerleaders. Contributing to Mr. Trembathis Quintet are: Eddie Lenart, Dave Josephic, Joe Mazur, John McCann, Tom McHugh, and Graham Grubb. The basketball team has proved fairly successful. The Junior girls and Junior boys decided to match their basketball ability in an official game. The grudge game turned out with the boys on top winning by a few points over the well proved girls. This game was played under girl's rules. P. Owens seemed to get quite excited when the girls would surround him! All in all we had a very enjoyable eve- ning. We added another face to our Junior Class. A real southern rebel named Jim Moore. Jim hails from the famous winter resort, Flori- da. Having never seen snow before he came to Trafford, we were just as excited as he when the first Hakes fell. Jim "Texv Moore resides at Duquesne Avenue and can be seen driving a blue Ford. Having gained a new student we lost two. Bob Smeltz having moved away is now at- tending North Huntingdon High School. He left us after our reading of the tragedy, Mac- beth. We can understand his leaving after the great Shakespearean play. Also, Harry Corl left our notorious Junior Class. To the ever progressing Trafford High School Band we donated our own: Graham Grubb, Maryann Mikan, Violet Klimovich, Dorothy Banasik, and Frances Stojakovich. To the newly organized color guards Marion Ludmann and Mary Jean Ruffo were chosen. Mr. F erri deserves great credit for his achieve- ments. In the Minstrel this year as end men were Tom McHugh, Jim Morocco, and Eugene Patrick. ln the dramatic field we put on our pro- duction of "Thats' My Boyf, Portraying the characters were: Jim Moore, Jim Wracker, Anna Mae Nabuda, Frances Stojakovich, Don Schopp, James Sage, Dorothy Banasik, Mary- ann Mikan, Jim Julian, Tom McHugh, Mariet- ta De Frank, Mary Jean Buffo, Audrey Schel- ler, and Violet Klimovich. We wish to thank Miss Smith for her help in making the Junior Class play a success. We close our Junior Year with our hearti- est thanks to Mr. Heaps and Mr. Ruckle our sponsors. . , I U IOR CLASS lst row: I". cillpllll, Nl. Nlikun, A. Nllllllllil, lf. l7x'yclryd1, A.

This was the result of our president's efforts to extract last yearis dues from us. Around the end of September we elected our class oflicers, which are as follows: Dolly Czapor, president, Betty Petrina, Vice Presi- dent, Lois Wanner, secretary, and Rose Bucar, treasurer. The Student Council members were Jackie Pratt, Eddie Krcelic, Pat Prines, and Chuck Jones. It was with the guidance of these faithful servants that we were able to get through the year without a mishap., The sophomore class contributed gal- lantly to the football team by the addition of Joe Frydrych, Mike DiCesare, Kenny Kinley, Don Lintner, Don Hopkins, Roland Dobos, Barry Brickle, Jim Furimsky and John Hartzer. We proudly contributed Betty Petrina to the ranks of our high stepping majorettes. We also had a group of musicians as band mem- bers. Leonard Colangelo, Jackie Pratt, Walter Trkula, Lois Wanner, and Certrude Meager. Adding a touch of class to the band was our color guard, Dolly Czapor. In October we staged a bake sale in Har- lich's Drug Store with the same purpose in mind-namely, moneyl We "made out" rather well in this, too, about SSO. Also, we can't forget those talented actors and actresses from our Latin II class, who put on a skit, under the direction of Miss Bierer. This was of course put on during football sea- son at one of our Pep rallies. In the course of the year we gained a promising addition to our class. His name, Chuck Jones, better known to all as Buck. He turned out to be a great and promising artist for our school newspaper, the Tomahawk. The sophomore basketball players were Bob Mathias, Bill Henkel, Barry Brickle, Den- ny Robinson, Jim Furimsky, Leonard Colan- gelo, and Eddie Krcelic. The sophomore girls who contributed to the C.A.A. volleyball, and basketball teams were: Patty Erwin, Dolores Fedor, Dorothy Fedor, Joann Cotch, Janet Iovino, Tance Leffler, Gertrude Meager, Mary Lou Merritts, Jackie Pratt, Eleanor Radosh, Pat Reed, and Lois Wanner. Frequent couples seen during the year were Elly and Mike, Bose and Rich, Pat and Bill, Jackie and Cap, Dolly and Bud, Barry and Anna Mae, Pretzel and Fran, Pat and Jim, Bunny and Yunny, and of course we can't for- get those three new romances which happened over the holidays, namely Jan and Paul, Wood- gie and Ron, and Chache and Myrrl. Oh, those out of town boys. At mid-term we lost one of our most popu- lar boys, Walter Trkula, to Penn Township. On January the seventh we had our first class party, our Freshman dues finally being in. This was a grand success and the boys, as usual, enjoyed the food. Toward the end of January we started an all out drive to raise money. In this we returned to the old stand-by of selling maga- zines. Our new student, Chuck Jones, came through with flying colors by selling the most subscriptions. While this did not make us millionaires it was fairly successful. As the old year went out with a bang, we found ourselves staring at the second Week of January, and came face to face with that dreaded time of exams. We then started look- ing forward to see if there were exemptions and who would be exempted. To our dismay we found only four teachers had exemptions and only the few students who had all Sis were not compelled to take the tests. Our hopes fell with a thud as the news circulated. To our amazement, the tests weren't as difli- cult as expected and no one needed to fear the consequences of facing our parents. And so we brought to a close our Sopho- more year and looked forward to a bright future in the hallowed halls of Trafford High School.

They have had a very prosperous year with which they are well pleased. They have had several parties which came out beautifully with the help of Mrs. Harris and Mr. Seigel. While the boys were busy making things in shop they never used, the girls were busy trying to send delicious smelling odors through the halls from the Home Ec. room. A few of the girls didn't survive the break- fasts they made. But most of us were out of the hospital in a few weeks. If you see a few boys walking around without fingers you,ll know that they let the band saw get out of hand. But we all survived the tragic happen- ings of 7th grade to be here next year. We hope future seventh graders will have such a memorable year to look back on. We also hope that we havenit been too much trouble to the upper classmen and to the teach- ers. We all made a resolution to try to be better next year. EIGHTH GRADE HISTORY The "Dreadful Dansv of 1938 have at last reached the eighth grade. As the shepherd to lead our flock we chose George Mahr, The other officers were Vice President, Darlene Schrockg Secretary, Norma Iean Bradley, Trea- surer, Joyce Simmons. Our student council representatives were juliann Bayko, Darlene Schrock, Pat Di Ceasare and Gilbert Burkel. We had two successful parties, Halloween and St. Valentine,s Day. The boys were a little bashful at first but Mrs. Neil soon got them over that. Our class increased by acquiring two new boys, Dick Morgan and Larry McCoy. The eighth grade was well represented this year in the gym exhibition. Some of the boys showed their skill on the mats doing wrestling and tumbling. Some of the boys were chosen to square dance with twelve girls. All in all, overlooking the bumps and bruises the boys must have gotten, the eighth grade came out on top. We want to thank Mrs. Neil and Mr. Shank for all their patience in trying to control our class. We are anxiously awaiting next year when weill be taking Latin, Algebra, and Ir. Business Training. We hope our year as "Creenies', turns out as well as this year did. FRE SHMAN CLASS HISTORY On September 4, 1950, the Freshman class with high hopes and a keen sense, entered a new era of their education. It was the same building but how different it looked when seen through Freshman eyes. "At last we have arrivedf, was echoed in each heart. But our serenity was dashed. We found that we were still ninth graders members of the junior High. We elected our class officers-President, Bardo Calloro, Vice President, Edward Hora- nic, Secretary, Eva Jane Bruno, Treasurer, Antoinette Morocco. Our members showed interest in the various school activities avail- able. Take a look at some of the activities we entered: Student Council, Reflector, and Tomahawk representatives and Freshman cheerleaders were chosen, Dramatic Club, Camera Club, Band, Jazz Band, Traffordians, Football Team, junior High Basketball, Cho- rus, interclass basketball, C.A.A., F.H.A., and the Minstrel drew many of us. Intermingled with the serious were the gay times, one of which our Freshman Party, was a great success. Dancing and a delicious lunch kept us in a happy mood. Miss Smith and Mr. Trembath worked diligently for our pleasure and we would like to thank them and say how much we appreciated their kind- IIPSS.

Mr. lohn Raymond of Lafayette Collgce was guest conductor. Besides heing a won- derful conductor. he had a pleasing personal- tv and a keen sense ot humor. 1 Most of the time was spent in exercising our vocal chords. But in our few minutes for recreation we managed to meet quite a few other students. All of us agreed that we had a wonderful time even it we did have sore throats. Pa. Galore, Nl.

Our school Band is progressing under the fine direction of Mr. Ferri, To our now 6:2 piece band we have added a new tuba. 3 inelophones. and three trumpets. We have added four color guards, Mary Stan- isic, Dolly Czapor. Marion Ludinann. and Mary lean Rufio. Mr. Ferri has started up a Jazz Band. The band played for two concerts this year and was present at all the football games and also played for Pep Rallies and May Day. For the County Band, District Band. and High District Band, members of the Trafford band are selected to represent us. VVe marched for the Halloween Parade for which we received ten dollars. NVe attended the Football Band Banquet as guests of the Lions Club. The Band officers were, President -Graham Crubbs, Vice President - Buddy Galloro, Secretary-LaVerne Consoli, Treasur- er - Leonard Colangelo, Librarian - james Moore. Nine Jackets were received by Sen- iors, Colleen VVatts. john Carlheim, NVilnia Meager. Marcie Gracion, Marjorie McKee. LaVerne Consoli. Mildred Ludmann, Twyla Bigler. Ann Behe. This year has proved very successful and Mr. Ferri looks forward to even a better year. next year. AIORETTE The Majorettes, along with the band, are one of the main clubs around football season. This year we are going to lose two of our "high stepping majorettesf our leader, Marcia Gracion, who has lead us through a very suc- cessful year. and Nlarjorie McKee. During the year, they have done some yery interesting stunts such as the 'iMerry Go Round Broke Downf, uThrec O'clock in the Morningf' and 'Come On To My Housef, Their twirling was much improved also for Marcia drilled and drilled. The Majorettes held a dance for the pur- pose of earning money for trophies for the graduating seniors. They are Marcia Cracion, who has completed six years as a inajorette, and Marjorie McKee, a five year record. This year there was something new tried in the routine. Since jazz was very popular in band music, the only thing to do was to have jazzy dance steps that kept everyone pepped up from beginning till end. The oncoming Seniors will be Frances Stojakoyich and Dorothv Banasik. The others in the group are Dolores and Dorothy Fedor, and Betty Petrina. Two new ones will be chosen for the coming year.

Pctrina CHEERLEADER The Cheerleaders of Trafford High School started their 1951 season full of pep, ready to lead our team through the football games. Our team was not successful in winning all their games. but they always did their best in supplying the pep. After the football season got started the faculty and two senior cheerleaders elected two attractive freshman cheerleaders who are Margie Schopp and Betty Vecchio. They also held quite a few dances so it would be possible to buy their uniforms of brown skirts and boleros with white blouses. Many new cheers were drawn up with fancy motions to go with them. They also contributed their services to making a success of all the pep 1'allies with little skits to 1'CPI'C- sent the team played that week, Mary Jane Marshalek and Irene Litwin, our two graduating seniors, received varsity jackets from the cheerleaders in appreciation for their four years of fine service. Next year Anna Mae Nabuda and Marion Harvey will lead you in your class cheers. CHEERLEADERS B. Vecchio, F. Leffler, M. Harvey, I. Litwin, M. nl, Marshalek, A. Nabuda, P. Reed, M.

Seven starting positions were filled by inex- perienced sophomore and junior aspirants who hoped their zeal might act as a substitute for needed experience. The opener with Pitcairn showed an in- spired squad of Trafford braves pitted against the highly-experienced eleven of the Rail- roaders. The first half of play showed the re- sourcefulness of both teams and ended with Pitcairn holding a slim margin. The Asquino to Zigarovich pass combination was showing very well, Hopes for victory went unreward- ed as the advantage of the experienced team showed itself at telling positions. The contest ended with the Railroaders ahead 24-6. Our home opener showed Ligonieris chargers seeking our scalps. It appeared early in the contest that our braves had found them- selves and were to taste the fruits of victory: however, an early lead was wiped out and overcome by the Ligonier warriors who took advantage of a fumble and an intercepted pass to make the final score 19-6. Our next visitors were Avalon, a con- tender for Class B laurels throughout the season and ending undefeated. Their victory came as the result of a recovered fumble and blocked kick-otherwise, they were over- shadowed in all statistics by the hosting Toma- hawks. A Nocturnal visit to East Pittsburgh saw many scoring opportunities fail due to ankle deep mud and hand numbing cold night air. The game remained scoreless until late in the fourth quarter when an inspiring display of pass catching and downfield running was given by Asquino, as he set up and scored the first points of the game. Weary Trafford could not sustain the desperate driving Green, as they pushed to a deadlocking score, 6-6. Our next visitors were undefeated Wil- merding. On the first play of the game, a Wildcat back rambled 60 yards for a touch- down. This is illustrative of the spontaneity and strength of our opponent. At half time Trafford seemed strong enough to overcome a two touchdown deficit, however, the stren- uous play and alertness on defense left 'the Tomahawks lacking for drive on offense. Many drives which appeared destined for scores were stopped-not by the opponentis defensive unit-but lack of reserve strength. The final score 33-0 did not truly tell the con- test. Our visitors later emerged the WPIAL Champions of 1951. Penn Township offered another tribal feud. The first half's play offered hopes for a Tomahawk victory, statistics favoring Trafford. A revitalized squad of Indians emerged in the second half, however, and assaulted our braves with devastating rapidity as we againisuc- cumbed to the effects of weak reserve power. Score 35-12. Our second nocturnal contest was with Etna. Early injuries to the team robbed them of potential power and the few times our team was found wanting Etna men broke through to score. Two drives made by the Tomahawks were halted by penalties which stopped their goalward movement when the opponent eouldnit. Score 13-0. Derry Boro was our opponent, in a game undecided until the final whistle. The Brown and White held a slim one point lead in the 7-6 battle, but loss of the Tomahawk's leader from the game was so costly a blow to both their offensive and defensive unit that a last quarter drive by Derry could not be thwarted, and a subsequent score gave them a hard earned 13-7 victory. Th season's finale pitted a winless Toma- hawk tribe against a once-beaten squad of Railroaders, even then seeking the Valley Championship. Once again an outscored but not outfought Trafford eleven found fumbles and poor passes their undoing as these ac- counted for two of Pitcairns' four scores. Many times the Brown and White marched forward only to be denied their reward. Trafford's strong defensive play waived in the late min- utes of the game and what had earlier proved an inadequate offensive for Pitcairn now gath- ered momentum, and pushed across decisive points. Plaudits are rarely directed to members of a losing club, but when such is the case the glory is greater. Such was ours when senior co-captain and center, Bernie Twardowslci, was unanimously selected on the mythical All- Valley Team. Congratulations Tubby!

Capan, E. Morrow, W. Mcager Front Row-M. Tarbuck, C. VVatts. F. Stujaknvielm The Girls' Athletic Association is an or- ganization to promote better sportsmanship among girls. It was put into operation to give the girls at Trafford High a chance to enter into sport when the Girlis Varsity Basketball was discontinued. The C.A.A. not only takes in basketball but vollyball and softball also. This gives the girls a better chance at sports all year round. The G.A.A. consists of the four upper grades in the high school. The membership is open to any one who wishes to join. This being only the second year of the club's exist- ence, it has progressed tremendously from the previous year, It has given each girl an even chance. The complete membership is divided equally into teams that plav each other until all are eliminated, but one. This team will re- ceive memorable honors. The point system by which all girls are Back Row-E. Morrow, M. Tarbuck Front Row-W. Meagcr, F. Stojakovich, F. Capnn, M. Dt-Frank eligible to earn the GAA insignia is based on their activity in the club. Each girl when she plays in a game will receive five points, two points each for keeping score, time, and ref- ereeing. All girls have an equal chance to earn points if they try. Miss Remaley, our sponsor. originated the idea when all other chances for girls, sports were eliminated. The idea had come from a similar college club, which is operated on the same order. The oflicers are President, Betty Koepka, Vice President, Colleen Watts, Secretary, Mary jean Ruffog and Treasurer, Ruth Dumm. Marion Ludmann took over the job of record- er. This consists of keeping an individual record of each girl. We as members of the G.A.A. want to thank Miss Remaley for all her work and cooperation. UNIOR HIGH B SKETB LL J.ll.S. UPP.

Prospects are hright for a much lmettcr showing this year with the return of the three regular pitchers and two outfielders. The whole regular infield was lost through graduation. Returning regulars from the 1951 hasehall team are pitchers Lenart. Wlracker. and Roland Galoreg and outfielders blohn Zigaro- vich and David Alosephic. Vacancies at the infield and outfield posts should he capahly filled hy these promising prospects: Asquino. Furimski. Twardowski. lfloranic. Kelly. Kinley. Brickel. A. Zigarovich. Nlajernick. and B.

XVith permission from the proper authorities we will prohahly play our home games at South Trafford as we did last year. XVe shall be pleading with Mother Na- ture and that villain the weatherman for the pleasant sunny days so necessary to the proper training and conditioning program for getting aspiring hall players into the hest physical shape for the task ahead. Our aim shall he to win the sectional title. In order to reach this aim it is necessary to capture each of our objectives. the game facing us at the particular moment.

Owens Wfhistling winds and driving spring rains are heralding forces which welcome another track season for the scantily clad braves from wigwam THS. The returning braves turn their eyes westward toward the setting sun in memory of Chief I-Runaway-From-them Seraiin who has departed from his inner circle of warriors and left many coveted scalps to prove the victorious nature which he instilled within the tribal unit. A new chief, Catchem- and-Passem-up Robinson. was selected to carry trailing feathers of our tribe to victory this season. Among those braves upon whom he will rely for scouting and foraging are the Run-uin-and-jump-um Ugles. Scout-and-Scout Horanic, VVatchem-My-Smoke WValko. Nie- Tossem Corl, Me-Tossem-Too Carlheim. Me- Heave 'em Hydak, .lump-to-Sky Draganac, Me-Slingnm-Stick Codich, Tossem-Far Mazur. and Stretchem-Legs NVracker. Caretaker of their needs and equipment was Me-Too-Tired F a b y o n i e and coach Me-Crackem-NVhip Heaps. Tribal records were made last year in contests involving braves from the NVPIAL, XVestmoreland County, and the State of Penn- sylvania. Our warriors brought home winning scalps in the 220 yard dash and the half-mile relay. Due to speed of pursuing panther, ex- chief Serafin now runs for Panthers of Pitt Wigwam. Other wigwams seek our present chief to run with the speed of a rabbit for them. Little braves of Iunior WVigwam also catchem scalps in -Iunior Meet held on home reservation. Them bring back skins of Middle- weight relay, broadjump, and highjump. After tribal dances for the blessings of departed warriors, our braves go forth to chal- lenge tribes of Hickory Township. Turtle Creek, Plum Township, Wfestmoreland Coun- ty. NVPIAL, and then, maybe, on to home of the Nittany Lion for All-State Nleet. SNAP I I i THE MINSTREL Top Row-fL4'ft to riglitj tlir' "lluln-rt E.
