She romped through life as happy people do, With love and laughter romping at her side, Then suddenly, without a fond adieu, Her place became a place unoccupied. Although all words of reasoning are strange When final partings such as this occur, We who are left to wonder at the change Should feel enriched for having talked with her And thankful for the quick and friendly smile That brightened us, if only for cx while. -William W. Pratt "Uncle Bill 6 orgoffen :jo olfmie DONALD LINTNER 1936-1952 He'll never be forgotten, for he was one of us. We remember his booming voice, His infectious laughter. fDonnie never laughed at anyone, he laughed with themj Whether on the football field or in a class room, He was always happy, And his happiness rubbed off on us Until we, too, became satisfied with the routine Of everyday experience. When we think of Donnie, we think of football. fHe was no slouch: first string tackle his Sophomore yearl To most people Don was known affectionately as "Bull", For he was the immoveable obiect on defense And the irresistible force in offense. It is strange . . . the thing he loved most in life Brought him death. 7 me Carnac 3lPFPVl.5fWg rinczyozzf MR. ANDREW BRYAN CARNACK, Supervising Principal, Mrs, Melvin Buchin California S.T.

It was 1951, and our chance, at last, to become active members of Trafford High School. We started the year with high hopes for the four long years ahead. We elected a president: Jim Walko, and a vice-president: Dolly Czapor, a secretary: Loretta Vaccaro, and a treasurer: Leonard Colangelo. The first event listed on our agenda was a class party. Surprisingly, this party, our first, was a success. The sec- ond party was "real great". It was held February 15, the day after St. Valentine's Day, and even at that late date a few new "sweethearts" were found. We were kept plenty busy with Miss Bierer's English and Latin I classes. The poor commercial students were "utterly flabbergasted by a new fangled math course called JBT. While in such deep concentration we found to our dismay that we had lost a few students: Charlie Stan- ley left to attend school at Ginter, Pa., and Bernie Desmond left to join the Navy later. But to make up for that loss, handsome and likeable Roland Dobos ioined our "great group". Throughout the year our class was outstanding in the sports' field, having contributed their share to football and basketball teams, and also to track and baseball. These boys, we knew, would prove themselves worthy material for building winning teams. At the end of the year we found that exemptions from final tests were few and far between but we had "great expectations" for the coming year. Il Well, can you beat that! Here we are, SOPHOMORES! We iust couldn't believe that all of us made it. Of course, as always, we started this year off with a bang. Some teachers called it an explosion almost as great as the A- bomb, In late September we elected our class officers. Little Dolly Czapor, who proved to be bigger than we thought, was president, other omcers were: Betty Petrina, vice-presi- dent: Lois Wanner, secretary, Rose Bucar, a very efficient treasurer. Our student council representatives were Jackie Pratt, Ed, Krcelic, Pat Prines, and Chuck Jones. The Sophs, of course, again contributed to the football team the "divine nine": Joe "Ears" Frydrych, Mike Di Cesare, Kenny "Beans" Kinley, Don "Bull" Lintner, Roland lftlf' If0l"7 cf... om... "Rollo" Dobos, Don "Toad" Hopkins, Barry "Boody" Brickel, Jim Furimsky, and John "Shorty" Hartzer, We added Betty Petrina to the ranks of our high step- ping maiorettes. We also had a group of "mad musicians" as band members: Len Colangelo, Jackie Pratt, Walter Trkula, Lois Wanner, and Gertrude Meager. Adding a touch of class to the band was our cute little color guard, Dolly Czapor. In October's bright blue weather we staged a bake sale as one of our many "raise more money campaigns". The sale . . . poor Mr. Horlick . . . he was almost at his wit's end before the day was over. You're wrong! We weren't destructive at all, we iust pestered him until he bought one of our "giant size" chocolate cakes for the very small price of two dollars and fifty cents-tax free. We made thirty dollars and could have made more only we ran out of "goodies". During football season in one of our pep rallies we found out that we really had talented actors in our class. Miss Bierer probably gave up trying to teach us Latin and turned her class into a dramatic skit for the "good of the cause". ln the course of the year we gained a promising addi- tion to our class. His name was Chuck Jones, better known as "Buck", Buck is a typical high school boy: very tall, blue eyes, blond hair. He became a promising artist for our school paper the Tomahawk, and helped with the back- drop for the minstrel, in fact he designed and painted it. Buck also was a type setter and ticket printer with his partner Ed. Krcelic. Both boys gave up their free time most willingly to help out on the Tomahawk. Our sophomore basketball players were Bob Mathias, Bill Henkel, Barry Brickel, Denny Robinson, Jim Furimsky, Leonard Colangelo, and Ed. Krcelic. These boys really helped the team, Bob Mathias, only a sophomore, played for the varsity and was the top scorer with a total of 239 points. Brickel, Colangelo, Furimsky, Robinson, Henkel, Kinley, Hopkins, and Mathias helped the junior varsity come out even with eleven wins and eleven losses. Brickel had a total of 197 points as highest scorer: then followed Colangelo, Robinson, and Furimsky with 134, 127, and 99 points respectively. Mathias scored 29 points in the first game. Ed, Krcelic devoted his time to helping Mr. Trem- bath as manager. Barry Brickel was manager for the iunior high basketball team. The baseball team was blessed with five sophomores: Hopkins, Lintner, Brickel, Furimsky, and Kinley. They filled vacancies in infield and outfield posts. Kinley, Brickel, Lintner, Mathias, Colangelo, and Furimsky added that extra sparkle to the track team. Our girls should not be forgotten either. On the G.A.A. volleyball and basketball teams were Patty Erwin, Dolores Fedor, Dorothy Fedor, Joann Gotch, Jan lovino, Tance Leffier, Gertrude Meager, Mary Lou Merritts, Jackie Pratt, Eleanor Radosh, Pat Reed, and Lois Wanner. The girls who had enough points received, as an award, a chenille letter with G.A.A. printed in brown. ln the inter- class basketball team the "eight fates" were: forwards- Jan lovino, Lois Wanner, Pat Reed, and Gertrude Meager: guards-Pat Erwin, Dolores Fedor, Tance Leffier, and Eleanor Radosh, Romance also played a part in our every day lives. Couples frequently seen during the year were Elly and Mike, Rose and Rich, Pat and Bill, Jackie and Ruck, Dolly and Bud, Barry and Anna Mae, Pat and Jim, Bunny and Yunny, and of course we couldn't forget those three new fContinued on page 22D BRICKEL, BARRY usoodyu x Foo'i'l:all 4, Basketball 4, Track 4, Baseball 4, Minstrel 2, Stage Crew 2, Varsity Club 2.

O, those guys from Pitcairn! At midterm we lost one of our most popular boys, Walter Trkula, to Penn Township. Walter was better known as Bunny to most of us. Toward the end of January we started an all out drive to raise money. In this we returned to the old stand-by--selling magazines. Our new student, Chuck Jones, came through with flying colors by selling the most subscriptions. We all aimed for that turkey dinner but iust never reached it: however, we sure can't forget the times we had going from door to door selling subscrip- tions. Take notice, underclassmen. Watch out for those doors! Some of us still have old battle wounds from those evenings when we tried to get more sales by not taking no for on answer. Use a different approach. After sell- ing these magazines we found that we still weren't quite the millionaires we expected to be, although we had been moderately successful. As the old year drifted slowly out, January popped up much too fast. It was that dreaded time again. What a way to start the new year! MID TERM EXAMS! Many times the thought popped into our minds, "I wonder if there are going to be any exemptions." To our dismay we found out that only students with all S's would be exempted. The air was filled with tension but after the tests we dis- covered that it wasn't so bad after all. No one was afraid to take his report card home. As Tommy reported: "All those 'saucy sophs' passed their mid-term exams." February found us a little wiser and quite a little hap- pier. After all, who wouldn't be relieved after those tests! Only four more months as sophomores. Individual pictures were taken to appear in the yearbook. Can we ever forget those mugs! Many of us thought they were pictures prepared for the Rogues' Gallery that had been mixed up with ours. Our classes were always kept alive by those ever- ioking four: Kinley, Colangelo, Hartzer, and Hopkins. Mr. Kenyon's English class was the scene of our greatest merry- making: for in that class, during these last months, we had Shakespeare's immortal Julius Caesar. Can't you iust picture "Beans" Kinley as "Ol Juli", Hartzer as Brutus, Pete as handsome Antony, and Hopkins as the lean and hungry Cassius! We still hear those lines, "Friends, Romans, Coun- trymen", and "Oh pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth". Those boys sure added color to this seeming'y drab play. later all of us agreed we really enioyed Julius Caesar and would never forget it. At the beginning of our English II year we thought we had gained a new student, for one day Mr. Kenyon was handing out test papers and called out the name "Eric Frydrych". The whisper went 'round, "Who is Eric?" Well, Joe, as you know, has the nickname of EARS and Mr. Ken- yon thought it looked like Eric. That is why Frydrych 'has never used his nickname on papers since: he's probab'y just allergic to the name Eric. He was always the first to laugh at Mr. Kenyon's iokes even when they weren't verv funny, and when he started to laugh everyone else laughed too. The streets were always cleared when Joe started his old dilapidated car. You could hear that thing coming a mile away. May soon crept up. These days were always bury, in fact so busy that we were almost lost in the shuffle. The Queen's court turned out to be one of the shortest courts in Trafford's history. Sophomores contributed to this cou't by electing Dolores Czapor and Frances Leffier as attend- ants. The girls chose green as the color of their gowns and they carried red roses. Then the annual school picnic was held May 23, at Kennywood. After Kennywood we all settled down to take exams. When greeted with our report cards some of us smiled and others looked surprised and exclaimed, "Whew, I passed!" Ill After a too short summer we found ourselves back in school as "Jolly Juniors". But we really weren't so iolly for during the late summer we lost one of our best friends, Don Lintner, known to all of us as "Bull". Don died after an appendectomy. As usual we elected class officers: Joe Frydrych, presi- dent, Dolly Czapor, vice-president: Loretta Vaccaro, secre- tary and mistress of our books: Rose Bucar, treasurer. First on the agenda was the Junior Class Play. What a scream! That's not an exaggeration: for how could we forget that hideous hanging head of Jan's and her blood- curdling scream? Joe Frydrych almost proved to himself that he was a mad man with a bloody hatchet, while Lois Wanner and Mike Di Cesare really played their part to the hilt. The "prom" was our next problem. Committees were chosen early in the year. ln a comparatively short time the theme was decided upon: a "Mexican Fiesta". "Our Mr. Heaps helped us with a new idea, an all-night prom. The MEN-ABOUT-TOWN supplied the music for dancing. After dancing various activities were offered, even swim- ming. In the early morning a few of the mothers cooked a breakfast for us. All in all it was really a big success. ln athletics we held our place contributing to football "Ears", "Beans", "Toad", "Rollo", Hartzer, DiCesare, Den- ny, "Boody", and Furimsky. ln basketball our players were our own "Bob Mathias", Len Colangelo, and James Furimsky. Our royalty this year were: King and Queen of Hearts, Bob Mathias and Betty Petrina: and Junior Class Attend- ants for May Day, Rose Bucar and Betty Petrina. ln science we had three mad chemists: Jim Walko, John Hartzer, and Toad Hopkins. Those stink bombs were the "most to say the Ieast". Poor Mr. Miller! Maybe now he'll be able to figure out why some of their experiments wouldn't work. Some of those new found formulae were really gaseous. Whew! After May Day and the "Prom" another tragedy struck our class. An excellent student and a best friend of many, Jackie Pratt was killed in an automobile accident. IV After three wonderful years, that really didn't drag, we became the "Super Seniors of '54". Our old stand-by, Joe Frydrych was re-elected president: vice-president, James Walko: secretary, Pat Prines: and once more for a third term, Rose Bucar as treasurer. This year, the year book was our biggest problem. Betty Petrina and Loretta Vaccaro were co-editors. We were then sure that the year book would come out on time. The Senior Class Play, "Take Your Medicine" was quite a hit. Len Colangelo as Henry K. Dodson really proved to all that he was a stuffy old bank president. Johnny Hartzer was as funny as ever as Mr. Puckett. The nurses, who looked so neat in their white uniforms, were Dolly Czapor, Jan lovino, and Rose Bucar. Caroline Gor- nick played the part of Miss Holt the head nurseg she really surprised everyone by being mean and cross. Chuck Jones played the part of Dr. Jackson, a college professor mis- taken for a surgeon. His girl friend, niece of the bank president, was played by Betty Petrina. The maniac Di Cesare, orderly Kinley, visitors to Miss Finkeldink lloretta Vaccaroj played by .loan Zentner and Joann Gotch to- gether with Dotty Wislocky as Dodie, a terribly mixed up student nurse, rounded out a very excellent performance. All in all, perhaps that trip to Torrance and the State Police Barracks which we made earier in the year were aood training for the manhandling some of these characters had to take. Another highlight of the year was the Seventh Annual Burnt Corkers' Minstrel. Len Colangelo was really a hit as End Man. We'll never forget the antics of J. C. Hartzer and Mike DiCesare who were also End Men. "Our own Jim Walko" was not only handsome as lnterlocutor, but also very capable. The school elected Betty Jane Petrina as May Queen and we chose Patty Prines and Lois Wanner for her at- tendants. With May Day over and the "Prom", and with graduation approaching we bring to a close our wonderful school days-some glad, others sad: but we still remem- ber what we did, saw, and heard. We even remember our briefs for Miss Bierer that we disliked so much. Just a few things we'd like to say: some of us wasted time in school: let our difficulties be o lesson for some of you other students. Get everything you can out of those four years, don't gripe when it's time to do some work. We know you won't be sorry. A814 we lfU8lf'8 y0lfLlfLg Top: Cute Twinsg Shy Lolo! ls that all Joan?

During the 1953-54 school term, Trafford High School received a 1953 Pontiac, for driv- ing classes. Mr. Schrock is the instructor of the dual control car. Each year there are between 25 and 30 students who complete the driving course. This course includes actual driving in all kinds of weather and regular indoor classes. ln November we had two repre:entatives lnlflfblflg from the Atlantic Company giving our stu- dents the Atlantic Driving Test. This test for both students and teachers, was given to point out the kind of driving habits they have. After the tests were completed, two students Pat Prines and John Vuick were chosen to demon- strate to the student body the reaction time and the breaking distance of a car in case of an emergency.

With the departure of Coach Mel Eremic and assistant coach Thomas Heaps for Florida, Trafford welcomed to its doors two new coaches for the year of 1953. Don Karanovich, o native of North Huntingdon, and a gradu- ate of the University of Pittsburgh, took over coaching honors, and Bob Teitt, a native of Trafford, acted as assistant coach. Together, they hoped to bring new life to Trafford by showing their coaching talents on the gridiron. After a month of practice the Tomahawks looked forward to their season opener at North Huntingdon. North Huntingdon started their attack early by setting up a six point lead in the first quarter. The Tomahawks, fighting hard, tried to put a stop to this attack, but it seemed, somehow, that the mighty warriors of North Huntingdon just couldn't be stopped. Final score: North Huntingdon 13, Trafford 0. With the loss of one battle in their minds, and the thought of victory in their hearts, the Trafford eleven attacked at Ligonier. Although the battle was long and tough, the Toma- hawks' minds were put at ease when the first touchdown was scored. They came up with the scalp which put a different view on things for the future. Score: Trafford 13, Ligonier 0. Battles of the past have proved our next opponents worthy of the name, the East Mc- Keesport Rams. The blood thirsty Rams struck first but it wasn't long before our boys made them feel the mighty sting from their toma- hawks. However, the Rams of East McKees- port seemed to find our weakness and kept striking it, finally gaining a well deserved vic- tory. The final score was East McKeesport 18, Trafford 6. Our next encounter was with West New- ton, which brought us the hope of another vic- tory. These hopes looked good and stayed good as our mighty warriors Horanic, McCoy, Brickel, and Dobos, led the Tomahawks to their second victory. The final score was Traf- ford 13, West Newton 7. With the taste of battle in their mouths, our warriors waited for the challenging tribe from St. Vincent Prep and descended upon them with great force to take revenge against last year's defeat. Again our warriors Horanic, McCoy, and Brickel, brought victory to our wigwams. Hanging up their scalp made the third victory in the five games played. The score ended with Trafford 13, St. Vincent O. Then our Tomahawks travelled a bit to meet the Indians of Penn Township. ln this game our warriors got off to a fast start which starred Joe Frydrych in the opening minutes of play as he ran for a touchdown to draw first scoring. Also starring in this game were Hor- anic, Dobos, and McCoy who helped bring back another scalp for our increasing collec- tion. Scalps: Trafford 19, Penn Township 13. This game also caused iniuries to Joe Frydrych and Larry McCoy. With the season rapidly closing, the Rob- bits of Rankin came to pit their talents against ours. After last year's defeat, the Rabbits wasted no time in getting started to hand us our third defeat of the season. The final score read Rankin 6, Trafford 0. The Tomahawks then decided they should travel to Derry Boro to match their talents with those of the Derry Rams. This battle caused in- jury to Larry McCoy who suffered a rib frac- ture, but wholeheartedly kept up his good work by staying in the game. This game also was sparked by Joe Frydrych who made most of the defensive stops. Also starring were Do- bos, Horanic, and Brickel in the offensive de- partment, these boys handed Derry Boro their defeat and placed another scalp in our collec- tion. Final score was Trafford 13, Derry Boro 7. The warring season ended with the mighty warriors challenging Pitcairn in an ef- fort to keep the victory bell which they had re- tained last year. The people on this day were to witness one of the most exciting rival battles in all this valley's history. The teams were in top form for this game and both Pitcairn and Trafford were out to "Get that Bell." Although Trafford was bothered with in- iuries during the whole season, they still wanted to get a crack at Pitcairn no matter what the cost was. Thus our braves entered battle. Through the bitter cold our warriors fought but there seemed to be no chance for them to score. Standout tasks were performed by McCoy, Horanic, Dobos, and Brickel. How- ever, this still wasn't enough to stop the pow- erful eleven of Pitcairn and they went on to take the victory and regain the victory bell which had stood in Trafford High School dur- ing the previous year. The final score was Pitcairn 26, Trafford 0. The closing of the 1953 season also brought to a close the many heartaches and happinesses for Seniors who will not be return- ing next year. These team mates are: Mike DiCesare, who didn't see any action because of a heart ailment, Joe Frydrych, Barry Brickel, Jim Furimsky, Roland Dobos, Denny Robinson, Kenny Kinley, Don Hopkins, and John Hartzer, who also didn't see action because of a rup- ture. So to these boys we tip our hats, bid them farewell, and wish them lots of luck. SCHEDULE Trafford North Huntingdon Trafford Ligonier ......,.,.,,....

The Trafford High School basketball quintet completed the '53-'54 season with an impressive eighteen wins and three losses and the copping of the Section XVI title. This fine basketball team was the second in the history of the school to win a section title. Coach Dick Trembath, who is retiring from coaching this year, won his second section title in his six years as head coach of Trafford High. The starting lineup for the Tomahawks, one of the tallest teams in Class B, was Bob Mathias, Barry Brickel, Anthony Zigarovich, Dennis Robinson and Jim Furimsky. The substitutes consisted of Leonard Colangelo, Tom Zim- merman, Jim Culliver and Eddie Cigich, The only returning regulars from last year's team were Bob Mathias and Jim Furimsky. The Trafford squad opened the '53-'54 season by losing to the Irwin Knights in an exhibition game at Irwin. The team looked very impressive as they were playing together for the first time and also against the state champs. The next game they found themselves pitted against Penn Township whom they defeated easily. West Newton was next on the schedule and the Tomahawks defeated them after a very tight game. lt was in this contest that Bob Mathias broke his old school record set last year, 37 points against Edgewood, by scoring 40 points. Traveling to Latrobe for their next encounter the Toma- hawks came from behind to defeat their class A opponents 66-65 in the last ten seconds of play. This was the second year in succession that the Tomahawks had defeated La- trobe by one point. East Huntington was next for the red hot Traifordians and didn't stand a chance when Trafford held a twenty point lead at halftime and held about the same margin through the second half. The Tomahawks then won a close one at Export by a slim two points. This game was very close because both teams had given everything they possibly could in the first half in an attempt to gain a large lead. During the Christmas Holidays the Tomahawks didn't have much rest, they had their annual game with the Alum- ni and defeated them. The following week the Kadets tried to end the winning streak of the varsity five, but could not muster enough to quite do the trick. On January 5, the Tomahawks opened the Section XVI season by defeating the East McKeesport Rams by five points in a hotly contested game on TraFford's court. The Trafford five next visited the Edgewood five and nearly met disaster. The Tomahawks pulled the game out of the fire in an overtime when one of the substitutions, Tom Zimmerman, made a set shot with ten seconds to go to win the game. Trafford played host to Export in an exhibition game because Zelienople had dropped out of the W.P.I.A.L. This time the Tomahawks did not have it as rough as in their previous meeting. Next on TraFford's long line of victims was Evans City, the new entry to Section XVI. Although Trafford beat them badly, Evans City held a twelve point lead at halftime. The rivalry between Trafford and Pitcairn was re- newed in the fourth league game in the Section. Pitcoirn's strategy was to hold down Bob Mathias who was aver- aging close to twenty-nine points a game. They succeeded in limiting him to fifteen points but in the process lost the game. The Tomahawks now leading the section with only East Pittsburgh remaining to be played in the first round, iourneyed to the Shamrock court and defeated them easily. This win was Traf'forcl's thirteenth in succession but was as high as it went. Penn Township out for revenge, outlasted the Tomahawks to hand them their second de- feat of the season by a slim one point margin. With the second round of section play resuming, the Trafford quintet visited the East McKeesport Rams and turned them back for the second time by a slightly larger margin than in their first meeting. lt was now Edgewood's turn to visit at Trafford, but as in their previous meeting the Tomahawks turned them back to gain their seventh Section XVI league win. The hottest game of the season was next for the Toma- hawks who traveled to Evans City, where an inspired team almost handed Trafford their first defeat. With only a minute to play the Evans City tive had the Tomahawks by three points, but Trafford was not to be counted out of this game, they not only overcame the deficit, but went on to win by three points. Again playing an exhibition game the Tomahawks easily defeated W.P.l.D. to gain their seventeenth win of the season. Trafford next journeyed to Pitcairn, the only team in the section which could overtake them. Pitcairn avenging an earlier defeat at the hands of Trafford, gave the Toma- hawks their first league defeat by a slirn two point margin. Trafford and Pitcairn were now tied for the section honors with Pitcairn having Evans City remaining on their schedule and Trafford having East Pittsburgh. Pitcairn now had to beat Evans City, this, however, did not come about as they were turned back by an in- spired Evans City team by one point. This gave Trafford first place honors with only East Pittsburgh standing between them and Trafford's second Section Crown. East Pittsburgh playing probably one of their best games of the season gave the Tomahawks a good game but did not have what it took as the Tomahawks de- feated them by sixteen points. The season scoring showed the Tomahawks average per game was fifty-eight to their opponents fifty-two. The individual scores showed Bob Mathias with 536 points, Barry Brickel 230 points, Anthony Zigarovich T70 points, Dennis Robinson 'Iii points, Jim Furimsky 63 points, Leonard Colangelo 36 points, Tom Zimmerman 23, points and Eddie Cigich 3 points. The graduating members of the squad are Bob Mathias, Barry Brickel, Dennis Robinson, Jim Furimsky and Leonard Colangelo. Returning next year are Anthony Zigarovich, Tom Zim. merman, Eddie Cigich and Jim Culliver. W. P. I. A. L. The Trafford Tomahawks made a fine showing in the W. P. I. A. L. Class B Tournament defeating Sewickley Town- ship Section i7 champs 45-42 at Wilkinsburg High School. Their next encounter was with Irwin at the McKeesport Vo- cational School. Unfortunately the Tomahawks lost to Irwin 58-40 although leading by eight points at halftime. omior liiuwflfy Zgadlefdaf Standing: Mr. Karanovich, J.

This squad, which will be next year's varsity, con- sisted of Jim Culliver, Tom Zimmerman, Eddie Cigich, Carl Zigarovich, Bob Peacock, and John Petrichko. The second team was com- posed of Bruce Bradley, John Mikan, Eddie Mandich, Joe Schopp, Bill Stutz, Joe Barsic, and Bill Morocco.

Although they lost seven games they were playing against larger schools and teams with more experience. The starting team consisted of Kenneth Mathias, Martin Varsafsky, Bill Daugherty, John Vaccaro, and Walter Lawson. Kenny Matulia, Wayne Mikach and Joe Ruffo were the chief substitutes. This team ended the regular season in a sectional tie with Wilmer- ding, but lost it in the playoff game by a score of 35-27. The TraFFord Junior High had previously defeated Wilmerding twice, but when they really needed the win to cinch their section, they lost a very close game to the Wilmerding team. High scorers of the season were Ken Mathias, Martin Varsafsky and John Vaccaro with 203, I22, and I2'I points respectively? The other scorers on the team were Daugh- erty, Lawson, Matulia, and Mikan with 45, 33, 20, I4 points respectively. J UNIOR HIGH BASKETBALL Trafford Opp 30 ........ ....
