MR. RICHARD L. ROBINSON
We dedicate this 1953 Reflector to Mr. Robinson who has not only been our
principal and teacher, but who has also been our advisor, our confidant, and
above all, our friend. We cannot help remembering all the fun We have had
during our school years: the Held trips, the plays, the dances, and with each
recollection We remember Mr. Robinson sharing in the work and fun.
It is with warm thanks that We dedicate this book to you, Mr. Robinson, for
all your efforts in trying to make us better, happier citizens.

It was a chilly Fall morning in September, 1949.
Our band of explorers stood on the hill gazing at our
destination, Trafford High School, 'feagerlyi' waiting
to begin the greatest adventure of our careers. We
found that the adventure was going to last four long
years, and for some, even more. But all of us soon
realized that this venture would be one that we would
remember the rest of our lives.
We entered into this Hall of Knowledge as
'Creeniesi' bursting with enthusiasm to cfdigv into
Latin and I.B.T. After a week or two, this enthusi-
asm faded, but we found an outlet for it in our
study halls: throwing paper wads, books and shak-
ing the floors.
We took time-off from the mischief to 'elect class
officers, electing james VVracker as our President, Vice
President Edward Lenart, Secretary Maryann Mikan,
and Bill Ogle as Treasurer. After threats of impeach-
ment, Wracker carried on successfully as President.
We also used some of our enthusiasm on the basket-
ball Hoor. The boys and girls were champions of the
interclass basketball tournaments and we celebrated
the event by having a spaghetti dinner. The troubles
we had trying to eat spaghetti and using good man-
ners will long be remembered.
Our band of adventurers was a courageous one
witnessed by our noble stand at Busby Run. fActually
we ran away from the antics of a wild man. It seemed
a few of the boys happened to venture into his farm
crops. We all fied except Mr. Shank, who stood his
By the time another year rolled around, we were
firmly established in our Alma Mater. With one year
behind us, we 'still ploddcd forward to our goal. With
the advancement of a year, we became aware of
financial responsibilities thrust upon us. We had a
bake sale which proved to be quite a success. Al-
though we had a diflicult time collecting dues, we
finally pulled through with the aid of our trusty trea-
surer, Jim Sage.
Ther-e we were in the midst of our Sophomore
year. The year of our immortal "Slip Slop Quartet."
Who will forget "We Love You Madlyf' and how
shaky they were in their appearance in our annual
Burnt Corkeris Minstrel? We never thought Joe
Mazur would stop laughing long enough to sing.
After the Minstrel, we tamed down long enough to
choose Frances Stojakovich and Marion Harvey to rep-
resent the Sophomores in the yearly May Queen coro-
WVO were also very proud of our adventurous crew
in the basketball field. VVe contributed our fine
sportsmen to Mr. Trembath's quintet. The boys'
interclass basketball team had an unusual talent for
losing games. Well, we all have our ups and downs.
The entire Sophomore year was filled with trials
and tribulations. We all felt sure we were prepared
to enter into our gala Junior Year.
The summer was all too short for us, and we
soon found ourselves back in school again for the
third chapter of our High School life. Opening our
third chapter, we elected Evelyn Morrow as President,
Bill Ogle as Vice President, and James Sage was re-
elected as Treasurer and Jim Owens as Secretary.
After spending a time trying to translate I. P.'s "legi-
blei' handwriting, we finally pulled through.

The National Honor Society was established to
better stimulate and promote high ideals of citizen-
ship than were being realized through either the
emphasis on physical or on mental accomplish-
The qualiiications for membership are excel-
lence in character, scholarship, leadership, and ser-
vice. Those members chosen from last yearis Iunior
class were David Iosephic, Edward Lenart, Mary-
ann Mikan, Evelyn Morrow, and Frances Stojako-
The initiation program is set off with an impres-
sive candlelight ceremony under the sponsorship
of Mrs. C. V. Lloyd. Speeches are given by senior
members and the new members are presented with
National Honor Soci ety pins.
The Student Council is the governing body
for pupil activity in Trafford High School.
It is a non-profit organization which has done
much for the benefit of others. The Council
held its annual Christmas Hop on December
Among other projects held throughout
the year were afternoon dances, the selling
of engraved pencils, and the collecting of
clothing for Clarence Fee. The students sup-
ported these projects generously. Later in
the year representatives were sent to the con-
vention of the XVestern Pennsylvania Associa-
tion of Student Councils which was held at
Duquesne High School.

The Dramatic Club which consists of stu-

began the year under the Cll1'6CtiO11 of Miss
The club did something new by organizing
a Verse speaking choir which proved to be
successful. ln addition to the verse speaking
choir We produced a few plays in which a
student director was chosen for the purpose of
directing the play and choosing the characters.
The officers of the organization are Bose

The staff started the year working in the
newly decorated Tomahawk room. They
then added a small printing press, which
brought more work than expected.
At mid-term Janet 'Ioyino stepped into the
position as editor, replacing Senior Mary Ann
Mikan, and the entire staff was completely
reorganized under junior leadership.
There are now sixteen members of the
straight news reporting staff, with Robert
Scales as news editor. There are also twenty
members of a special reporting staff, with
eleven departments each with a special editor.
In all, there are thirty six members of the
staff who are working for the good of the
On February 14 the Tomahawk staff held
its annual Sweetheart Dance which, as usual,
was a big success. The gymnasium was dec-
orated with pink and white crepe paper and
on the walls there were cupids holding hearts
with Sweethearts names on them.
Congratulations to the sponsor, Mr. Ken-
yon, and to the staff for their good work this
year in bringing the news to the students.

The Trafford High School Band which
began having weekly practice sessions early
in the summer for football season marched
at all nine of the football games and made
,some splendid showings. The formations
were improved and the music was much
more difficult, although handled with ease
under Mr. Ferriis direction.
One new addition to this yearis band was
Bob Mathias, our high-stepping drum major.
The new majorettes chosen from last year
were Helen Serfling, Antoinette Morocco and
Dolores Traiicante. In number there were
fifty-five marching pieces, six majorettes, four
color-guards and one drum major.
Besides marching at football games, the
band also gave a concert in the spring. Much
preparation was needed for this concert as the
type of music was especially difficult. Some
of the selections were c'Stars and Stripes For-
ever, Wizard of Oz Fantasy, and Fantaziniaf'

The Girls, Athletic Association, sponsored
by Miss Bemaley, started the year off by
choosing Frances Stojakovich to lead them
through the year as president. They elected
Ankey Morocco as Vice President, Janet lovi-
no as Secretary, and for the second time Ruth
Dumm as Treasurer.
The iirst activity they had was the pick-up
volleyball teams. Right after these games
vvere completed, the interclass volleyball
games started, which the always victorious
In February the basketball tournaments
started. The pickup team games were dis-
continued. The interclass games as of now
CMarch lll have not been completed. 'How-
ever, the honors will go either to the Sopho-
mores or the Seniors.
As an extra activity to earn money for
awards the G.A.A. sold sweat shirts. Some of
them had a black and red G.A.A. emblem on
the front. These were sold only to the girls
in the association. There were others with a
Trafford Tomahawk emblem, and were sold
to anyone who desired them.
At the end of the year the winning teams
and the girls who have the sufficient number
of points will be awarded the earned awards.
The first award given is the Trafford If
a girl received a "T" last year she will get a
different award this year. Miss Pmemaley is not
sure what the second award will be, but it
probably will be a pin with the letters C.A.A.
and the date 1953 on it.
Points are given for participating in the
games, for keeping score, keeping time, and
for refereeing. There are two points given for
doing each of these things.

otlicers: President, Frances Stojakovichg Vice
President, Mary lean Ruilog Secretary, Patty
Prines, Treasurer, Frances Leffler.
The purpose of the club is to familiarize
commercial students with their chosen voca-
tion. This vear a movie was shown to the
students to help them learn how to act and
prepare themselves to be secretaries. The
movie, called "Duties of Secretariesf, was en-
ioved bv the girls since it added to the know-
ledge of becoming a secretary.
The club also held its annual Commercial
Club Party to which the girls always ask their
fellows. The party was a tremendous success
for everyone had a Wonderful time.

Driveris Training has been offered to the
students of Trafford High for the past live
years. A new Chevrolet car is donated to the
school each year by the Schade Brothers of
Irwin, Pennsylvania. The schoolis expense
on this car amounts to the payment of the in-
surance and providing gasoline and oil.

class. Students may take this class during
their free periods, however, the driving in-
structor, Mr. Schrock, has found that the forty-
minute periods do not give the student enough
actual driving time, hereby increasing the
time needed to complete the course. The class
has averaged twenty-five to thirty students a
year, at the present time, thirteen have obtain-
ed their licenses, nine are taking the course,
and five have applied for permits.
All we do is work. For every assembly we
have to put up the chairs, then afterwards
take them down. VVhen there is a play we
put up the props, we carry the furniture and
place it. We take care of the curtain pulling
and the lighting of the stage. But we have
fun doing it and we like helping Mr. Robinson
because we get a meal and a movie at the end
of the season.

This picture of good-looking
girls was taken in our newly dec-
orated Home EC room. As you
can see we were having a din-
ner. Doesnit everyone look
hungry? Mrs. Harris is our
Home Ec teacher, and she
knows how hungry we are when
we come to class, so we cook
extra large servings of our favor-
ite dishes. Our favorite dish is
spaghetti and meat halls.
To our Commercial system
this year we have added a cleri-
cal course. This course consists
of different types of machines.
The School Board has bought a
Monroe Calculator and a Bur-
roughs machine for this course.
We are given a period of two
weeks in which to achieve some
skill in the operation of each
machine. This course is for Inn-
iors and Seniors only.

is called the Tomahawk room,

The senior class play was presented to the
public on February 20, 1953. The cast for
this hilarious farce, No Bride for the Groom,
consisted of Marion Harvey, James Kelly,
Maryann Mikan, Frances Stojakovich, James
Julian, Marion Ludmann, James Sage, Anna
Mae Nabuda, Mary Jean Rufio, Dave Jose-
phic, Shirley Eves, and Marietta De Frank.
Critics said it was one of the most hilarious
plays to be presented in many years. Even
though there Wasnit a large attendance the
seniors had a lot of fun putting it on.
The Mold goatv in the play, James Julian,
embarrassed his youthful nephew, Kelly, by
rubbing noses with the old Widow, Frances
Stojakovich. Such carrying on results in Kelly
being brideless at a crucial moment, and in
the substitution of the scheming and Willing
Maryann Mikan. The play is a big mix up be-
cause everyone wants to get married. Since
there are only four men for eight Women the
situation resolves itself into a pit of confusion.
The actions of James Sage and Anna Mae
Nabuda as negroes in love is very cute. When
Marion Harvey and Dave Josephic go through
their love scene, it really looks like they are in
love by the sweet things they say to each
other. Before the curtain falls on the last act
there are sorted out four happy couples: Fran-
ces Stojakovich and James Julian, Anna Mae
Nabuda and James Sage, Maryann Mikan
and James Kelly, Marion Harvey and Dave
Josephic. The four jilted girls start hunting
in other pastures.

Mr, Ilcapg Mr. Ereuiic Mr. Teitt
Many council fires have been dampened by the
words that a warrior of the tribe has fallen. So it
was within the wigwams of our tribal unit, for the
loss of Don "Bull" Lintner immediately prior to the
opening stanza of our fall campaign was sorely felt.
The cry of "O Manitou" was raised again when our
foremost brave, Dave Josephic suffered an ankle in-
jury which was to plague him and his tribesmen
throughout the ensuing campaign. But those who
were later to feel the edge of our tomahawks reckoned
not with the valor of our ancestry, for wc of the
Trafford Tribe walk with the lion, fly with the eagle,
and thus we know no fear of our adversaries.
Our first sortie found us on the moonlight warpath
to North Huntingdon. Trafford struck with the
quickness of the panther and was rebuffed by the
staunch warriors of North Huntingdon whose de-
fensive measures showed the cunning of an owl. The
contest awed the spectators with the rib-rocking style
of play. Finally, in desperation, since they were the
favored warriors, our adversaries put on a desperation
attack, broke through our stout front line and crossed
into our guarded goal zone. The final score was
North Huntingdon 6, Trafford 0. What better warn-
ing to our future foes might we have offered than this
valiant effort against such an overwhelming force.
With the taste of battle in their mouths our
warriors waited for the challenging tribe from the
Ligonier mountains and descended upon them in an
avenging manner which devastated the attacking
force and caused them to run wildly back over the
hills to their own village while leaving many scalps
lying on the field of battle. Scalps: Trafford 26,
Battles of the past have proven our next antago-
nists' to be worthy of their new found name, the East
McKeesport Rams. The elusive Rams struck first but
revenge was not long in coming and our own braves
made them feel the sting of our long sessions in 'battle
lore. However, during the heavy encounter of the
second half, one of our leaders was struck down and
this proved a sore spot at which the enemy struck re-
peatedly, finally to gain the point of victory. The
score, East McKeesport 13, Trafford 6, meant more
than a loss on the field of honor. It meant also that
Ioe Frydrych, our giant front line warrior, would
miss an active part in engagements to follow.
The green of the forest acted kindly as a merging
color for the East Pittsburgh braves who struck with
lightning-like rapidity to score. Such an early crush-
ing blow was not easily overcome and it was not
until late in the battle that our own warriors, Horan-
ic and Mazur, retaliated for the infringement upon our
hallowed ground. Suddenly the evil gods of the
visiting hill-men caused our warriors to err in a
catastrophic manner, allowing a migrating member
of the foraging group to strike the telling blow which
sent our tribe woefully to their wigwams. East Pitts-
burgh 12, Trafford 6.
Our tribal chiefs thought it advisable to travel afar
and participate in a sortie of our own. The hosting
warriors struck swiftly through the air and wounded
us mortally even at the onset of the conquest. This
being another night raid we reeled about in an at-
tempt to collect ourselves after this initial onslaught,
but too late. The braves of St. Vincent Prep wig-
wam had outdistanced our true but tired veterans.
When nightis rays had settled we had suffered badly
in a 20 to 6 defeat.
Our next encounter was with the Indians of Penn
Township. While endeavoring to reach our battle-
ground we were briefly halted by lack of transporta-
tion and so, without our canoes Calias the Trafford
Coach Linesj, we forged in. This added effort seemed
to ignite the spark with which we fought that day.
Our defensive warriors stood unflinchingly and threw
down each wave of invaders while our deploying
offensive team burst loose from all restrainin forces
and surged through the oppenents time ancf again.
One enemy charge did pass unrestricted as, with a
quick deft maneuver, the enemy scored. This battle
saw the emergence of Brave Brickel as our mighty
air arm, and adroitness developed to coincide with
his running agility. Scalps: TraHord 18, Penn Town-
Then our warriors traveled afar to meet the tribe
of the Rankin Rabbits. Here the combined strengths
of Sage, Brickel, Horanic, Mazur, and an unsung
brave, Draganac brought victory to our Wigwam only
to have it stealthily taken again. The superiority
of our tribesmen was undone by a momentary la se
during which time this group of rakish maraucfers
struck twice in secrete-d moves and struck mortal
blows to our loyal legionaires. Rankin 25, Trafford
In the past the Derry Boro Indians had struck us
down and carried our scalps into their tribal council.
But not this day! In the background could be heard
the challenging cries of another foe. With the lead-
ers of the last foray spreading their war cry through
the air, our lusty braves swooped through the oppo-
nents and emerged with a victory. Scalps: Trafford
34, Derry Boro 2.
The warring season ended as our braves invaded
the domain of the neighboring Railroaders. Here
our claims to fame and honor lay. The soldiers from
Pitcairn had experiencefd more victories, fought
equally strong opposition, and surrounded its activi-
ties with veterans or experienced men, Whereas we
boasted not a lengthy list of victories, nor great num-
bers in our midst. Thus our braves entered battle,
not embellished with buHalo robes of glory, only the
quiet cloak of decision. The defensive measures set
up by our protective force would not let the enemy
threaten seriously throughout, while our offensive
group ripped holes in the forward walls of the oppo-
nent. Standout tasks were performed by Brickel
and Horanic in offensive chores, while Draganac was
superlative on defense, striking down our enemy
and making the all important stop-gap play which
broke their ranks completely and caused the final vic-
tory. The score, Trafford 6, Pitcairn 0 is most inade-
quate to tell the tale of the valor shown that day.
And so to Sage. McHugh, Iosephic, Kelly, Mazur,
Koeoka. Kerin. an-d Owens we extend our arms in a
fond salute of farewell.

1' 'Semi finals
"' " Q Finals
The Trafford basketball quintet completed its
1952-1953 season with one of the most impressive
rf-1-nrrls in the schoolis history. Coach Dick Trem-
bath worked tirelessly to build this basketball quin-
tet into the team it was this year. Two years ago this
team, composed mainly of sophomores, completed a
twenty-game season by winning three and dropping
seventeen. This record does not show the experience
and knowledge oi' basketball that was obtained by the
boys. ln the 1951-52 season the boys showed im-
prov-ement by winning six out of seven exhibition
games and six out of thirteen league games. In their
run for top honors in section sixteen, Trafford ended
up in fifth place. The quintet achieved its thirteenth
victory of the 1952 season in the WVestmoreland Coun-
ty Basketball Tournament.
The Trafford squad entered its 1952-53 season
with all the regulars returning with the exception of
one. The team was composed mainly of seven play-
ers: Graham Grubb. Ed Lenart, Joe Mazur, Dave
Iosephic, Bob Mathias, and Jim Furimsky. The quin-
tet opened its exhibition play by defeating Penn
Township. Then it went on to win over W.P.I.D., two
over Export, one over West Newton, one over La-
trobe, one over the alumni, and a second one over
Penn Township. At the end of the exhibition series
Trafford showed eight wins and no losses. One of
these wins was over a double A school, Latrobe.
At the beginning of Ianuary 1958 the Tomahawks
entered the running for top honors in section sixteen.
After defeating East MeKeesport and highly favored
Edgewood, the Tomahawks came up against the top
team of the section, Glassport. This game aroused
much excitement not only among the people of Traf-
ford and Glassport, but also among many people
from the neighboring communities. This game proved
to be a record in attendance for the Trafford High
School Gymnasium. Although the result of the game
was a sad one for the Trafford quintet, the Toma-
hawks Slave the fans a thriller, losing out by three
noints in the last few seconds. The remainder of the
first half of section sixteen, games with Elizabeth,
Wilmerding, Pitcairn, and East Pittsburgh were won
by the Tomahawks.
Trafford opened up the second half of the section
sixteen games by again defeating East MeKeesport. At
this point in the season the W.P.I.A.L. made a ruling
which eliminated the top running team, Glassport,
and also Wilmerding and Elizabeth from the ranks of
Class B basketball. With these three schools moving
into the A bracket, the first place honors for section
sixteen Went to Trafford. But the losses to these
schools would still count as far as league standings
NVhen the Tomahawks traveled to Edgewood,
their only dangerous opponent at this stage, the quin-
tet was set back by the highly spirited Edgewood
players. This proved to be an expensive loss for the
Tomahawks, for now they had to play Glassport with
only a one game lead over Edgewood. The Glassport
Gladiators set the Trafford five for a loss. Now they
were in a tie for first place. The Trafford quintet was
spirited up for the Elizabeth game in afdesperate at-
tempt to stay in the section sixteen race. But Edge-
wood was up for their game with Glassport and Edge-
wood came out on top. This threw the lead into a
tie again. Would it be Trafford or Edgewood? Nei-
ther team at this point could afford to lose another
game in the section. Then Trafford was set back by
VVilmerding which caused the Tomahawks to drop
out of first place. The two remaining games with
Pitcairn and East Pittsburgh were won by the Traf-
ford quintet. Trafford ended the season with ten
wins and four losses in Section Sixteen giving it second
place honors in the section.
With the ending of the league play the Toma-
hawks went to the WVestmorcland County Basketball
Tournament. It was here that the Trafford outfit
started a season within a season. The Trafford quin-
tet traveled to Greensburg for the first game in the
tournament. In this first game it met Youngwood
High School, when the buzzer sounded after hard
play, the Trafford boys walked off the floor with a
win under the belts. The people of Greensburg were
impressed by the type of ball the Tomahawks played,
and they treated us very cordially.
The following Saturday, Trafford played Laurel
this game ended Trafford was in the semi finals with
Derry Boro, a tough opponent losing only to Irwin
in their section. In one game the boys from Derry
had scored over one hundred points, so Trafford wasn't
playing a "push-overu team. At the end of the first
few minutes of the game the Tomahawks had the
lead. However, at half-time Derry Boro was out in
front by eight points. When the second half started
Derry built their lead to twelve points. It was after
this that the Tomahawks started to click and before
the Derry five knew what had happened their lead
was cut to two points. The Trafford quintet contin-
ued their fiawless play and as a result, Coach Dick
Trembathis five were in the finals.
The Trafford five met Irwin in the finals. Irwin
had taken their section this year and were undefeated
in their class. The Trafford quintet went to Greens-
burg to bring back the Westmoreland County Class
B Championship but Irwin proved to be a strong
opponent and in the late stages of the game, they led
the Tomahawks. The Trafford five threw a scare
into the Irwin Knights by cutting down their lead
quite considerably, however the flurry came too late
in the game and Irwin won, but we gave them a run
for their money.
When Traffordis quintet went to the finals at
Greensburg it was the first time that Trafford had
ever been represented in the finals. Although Coach
Dick Trembathis team was defeated, the people of
Trafford are still proud of their team and they have
every right to be, for it completed one of the most
impressive seasons in the history of Trafford High
School. During the 1952-53 season, the Tomahawks
were turned back only five times, three of which
were by teams out of their class, In the win column
Trafford registered a twenty-one.
Although this team didnit win any trophies for
the high school, it certainly made Trafford a lot of
friends. Mr. Trembath will be leaving his coaching
position this year along with five seniors with whom
he worked for three years. The five seniors: Sonny,
Eddie, Yunny, Ioe, and Dave hope that they have
given him some moments of joy during these past
years that he will remember all his life.
The scoring for the year was led by Graham
Grubb, 384, followed by Bob Mathias with 360, Dave
josephic with 210, Eddie Lenart with 203, John Mc-
Cann with I77, Joe Mazur with 93, and Jim Furinsky
Bob Mathias, jim Furimsky, Pete Colangelo, Eddie
Horanic, Anthony Zigarovich and Roland Dobos will
be returning next year. The graduating members

though Laurel Valley was a section winner they
proved to be no match for the Trafford quintet. VVhen

for next year a prosperous season in "The Friends of
Trafford Columnv if not in the win column.

Traffordis Junior Varsity compiled a record
of 8 wins and 13 losses during the 1952-53
season. Anthony Zigarovich, with 69 points,
was high scorer. The record is not an envia-
ble one but we must consider several factors
before passing judgment. First of all most of
the squad are Sophomores with only their lun-
ior High experience to draw from. In compe-
tition they met boys who outclassed them in

there is a dearth of material to offset. How-

The Tomahawks, under coach Mel Eremic,
finished in third place last year behind North
Huntingdon and Wilmerding. They started
with a 8-2 win over the champs, North Hunt-
ingdon. Going dead after the opening game,
they lost their next three games mainly be-
cause of faulty playing and batting slumps.
Two of these were very closely fought games,
lost by but one run. Plum Township 3-2, and
Wilmerding 2-1. The other was lost on errors
to Pitcairn by a score of 7-4.
Then another game with Pitcairn started
them on the uphill winning streak when Jim
Wracker shut out the Railroaders by a score
of 7-0. In the next game North Huntingdon
showed its hitting ability and walked away
with a 14-6 triumph. After this loss the Toma-
hawks went on to beat Plum 8-5 in a nicely
played game by both teams.
Their last game of the season was a 6-4 loss
at the hands of VVilmerding which finished
second place only a game ahead of Trafford.
The leading pitcher was Jim W1'acker with
two of the three wins, Eddie Lenart won the
third. The leading batters were John Ogle
with a .481 average and Jim Furimsky with
.463. Jim Furimsky had the most runs batted
in while Eddie Lenart had the most runs
The squad will be enlarged this year with
more boys going out for baseball. The battle
for positions will include inielders, Eddie
Lenart, Dave josephic, Larry McCoy, Jim
Walko, john Hartzer, Bpb Scales, and Eddie
Krcelic. The outfielders will include John
McCann, Roland Dobos, Ioe Mazur, Bob Pea-
cock, and Eddie Horanic. The pitchers are
jim W1'acker, Don Hopkins, and Bill Ogle.
Iim Furimsky will do the lone catching chores.
The team is eagerly awaiting the new
season and Coach Eremic, placing high hopes
on his team this year, believes they might even
bring the school a championship.

With the coming of the spring rains and
with the chill winter still hanging in the air
there can be seen activity about the athletic
field, pole vaulting, hurdling, broad jumping,
discus throwing, high jumping, relays and
dashes. The outlook for a promising season is
bleak in that there is a need for a complete
remolding of team personnel for the best dis-
tribution of talents, also there is that seeming-
ly insurmountable task of taking those in the
embryonic stage and developing them into
varsity competitors. However there are rays
of sunshine to be found also, co-captains Billy
Ogle and Richy WVaLko have the ability to lead
their teammates to victorious ventures. Billy
was a medal winner at the WPIAL Track
Championships in 1952. These two specialize
in the dashes and if another duet can be found
to match strides with them a formidable re-
lay team will be the result. -
Hopes for a berth are found in Brickel,
Horanic, Mazur, Wracker, and Draganac.
These would also be the nucleus of the sprint,
relay, and hurdle events while some would
also be found alternating in the javelin and
high jump. The latter is Sammy Draganac's
specialty wherein he has hopes of reaching
the state finals this year. Pole vaulting shows

ning honors in the event at the WPIAL Meet

cal spot of the team this year will be the field

Soon we discovered our financial responsibilities
werenit over with our Sophomore year. To earn
gr-eenbacks for our annual Junior and Senior Prom,
we sold magazines. I might add this wasnit too suc-
cessful. Also, we held a dance which was profitable
and we sold Christmas wreathes.
Coming back from the holiday filled with New
Yearis resolutions, we tried to settle down to work.
But soon we had a rude "April Shower" awakening
by way of the annual minstrel. Our claim to glory in
the minstrel was J. P. Owens, smash television debut,
or should I say splash television debut. We must
admit, I. P.'s crude umbrella wasnit much protection,
when Jim Morocco insisted on making it a real cloud-
burst instead of a shower. We laughed about it for
a week. Our grease paint minstrel men were Tom
McHugh, Eugene Patrick, and Jim Morocco. Aside
from Moroccois little jokes which weren't included
in the script, it went smoothly.
After settling down from the minstrel, we elected
Mary Jean Ruffo and Maryann Mikan to the May
Life at Trafford High didn't stay quiet very long,
for up popped a suggestion which proposed a grudge
basketball game between the boys and girls. This
exciting game turned out with the boys on top win-
ning by a few points. Their excuse for not winning
by a higher score was that they weren't used to play-
ing under girls' rules. Another prevailing excuse
from the boys was that their star, I. P. Owens, was
playing under handicap. It seems he couldnit get
adapted to having the girls surround him. We'll never
forget the look of panic on his face when a girl would
over-guard him. All in all, we had a very enjoyable
Our junior Year saw the appearance and disap-
pearance of Jim Moore. Jim hailed from Florida and
apparently got homesick, and returned at the end
of the year. We were sorry to lose such a swell
buddy. Also, Bob Smeltz, our ace magazine salesman,
left to attend North Huntingdon High School.
Soon the traditional Junior Class Play was cast.
We had so many prompters hiding behind chairs, we
hardly knew where to walk. Aiding "That's My
Bov,', was Miss Smith. We extend our sympathy
to her. I hope our play wasn't the cause of her leav-
It was Prom time soon, and we found that we
finally had enough money. After much committee
work, we chose Candyland as the theme. For this
enchanting event, Artie Demore's Orchestra supplied
the musical background. The enchantment didnit end
with leaving the dance. We found ourselves visiting
the morgue at two oiclock in the morning. The boys
seemed more frightened than the girls. After a hectic
night, we found ourselves safe, sound, and tired.
May arrived rapidly and we closed what we
thought was the most exciting of our school years.
We looked forward to our Senior Year, one that
would mean the climax of our bold adventure.
We never realized how rapidly the climax would
be upon us. The summer fled past us and the autumn
grew nigh. The pleasant September days grew into
long October sessions in English. We learned what
ubriefsn and uthemesn were. Aghast, We tackled
assignment after assignment. Physics and Shorthand
also kent our minds glued to the thoughts of the Pro-
mised Land we hoped to reach in May.
We managed to find time to elect the Deople
who would counsel our group through the trials of
the months to come. Elected were David Ioseohic
as President. James Wracker as Vice President, Anna
Mae Nabuda as Secretary and elected for the third
time, Iim Sage as Treasurer.
The football season gave us an opportunity to re-
lease some pent-up emotions. We cheered our gallant
warriors as they charged down the chalk-lines. There
were victories and there were defeats, but we took
them in stride. The football season ended in a smash
triumph over Pitcairn. Weill never forget that game.
Perhaps the boys got a few i-deas from the eleven fair
football females who cavorted upon the stage 'during
chapel. Seeing the girls in shoulder pads and football
uniforms will long be remembered.
Football was now in the past and we resumed our
routine daily work. But lo and behold, one chilly No-
vember morning Mr. Schrock packed all of us into a
bus marked "Torrence State Hospitalf, We knew
that we were over-zealous in class, but we didn't think
we had progressed that far. To our amazement, we
found it was a P.O.D. field trip to a state hospital.
While walking through the area, some of us had
some fears that we would be mistaken for inmates,
for the patients stared at us quizzicallyl I Thus, we
had to count heads when we returned to the bus.
All were present and accounted for. CPD We re-
turned to the halls of T.H.S. and oft-times we won-
dered if our actions didnit merit our deportation to
However these doubts didnit linger in our "ma-
turei' minds very long. The normal atmosphere of
classes returned very quickly. Jim Sage's comments
were ended only by the Christmas recess, a vacation
that we had looked forward to for many long weeks.
For many, the vacation was a dreamy one, for
others, it was a welcome rest, and for the majority,
it meant making up those papers we never handed in
to our understanding teachers. C??l
The year 1953 meant one thing to usg the final gal-
lop down the home stretch to win the golden prize-
"a diplomaf' The gruelling weeks turned into months
--the basketball season drew to a thrilling climax.
The Senior Class play, "No Bride for the Groom,"
brought out the dramatic instinct in some of us. After
the performances, We all agreed that "It was the best
Senior Class play in many yearsf, Our thou hts
then turned to grease paint, burnt cork and fioodligiits.
Yes, the Burnt Corker's Minstrel was on its way. A
goodly representation of the Seniors participated in
the annual event, and what an event it was! l The
strains of "I Believei' by Iim Kelly still echoes through
our minds along with the antics of Eugene Patrick,
Tom McHugh and Iimmy Julian. The ballads sung
by the Senior Trio still seemed to hang in the air even
though the minstrel was over. We were a tired but
a happy group as we said adieu to our Burnt Corker
We were still in a daze as April drew to a close.
Yes, May was here, the month of fiowers, the month
that is filled with more heart-warming sentiments
that we could account. The month's wonders began
with the crowning of our Queen of May, Frances
Stojakovich. In attendance with our Queen, were
Marion Harvey and Mary Iean Rufio. The pageantry
of the coronation set our minds to a pitch of excite-
ment. Last minute papers and themes, and final ex-
ams were all part of the delirious weeks to come.
We managed to get through those weeks in great
shape, ready to claim our prize. As the final events
arrived, the air of joy faded to an extent, and now
an air of nostalgia came over us. We were now ready
to write more history for our group as we turned
solemnly from the stage, a diploma clutched in our
hands, a serious stare on our countenances and the
refrain of "Alma Materv reverberating through the
air. Our High School Days were over.
