THE SPECTATOR 1938 FOREWORD The Spectator Staff this year has tried to include in the yearbook all the things that interest you mostkyour school, your teach- ers, your schoolmates, your athletics, and your clubs. It you enjoy this book as much as We have enjoyed working on it, We shall feel that our time has been well spent. DEDICATION In appreciation of his outstanding work in the fields of athletic and academic endeavor, with admiration for a man who, in a short two years, has carved for himself a place in the hearts of the school, and with respect for his human characteristics, we, the Class of 1938, dedicate this Spectator to MR. WALLACE SULLIVAN To Vandergrift High School XYithin these walls where we have W XVe've had a lot of fun. It is with saddened hearts we leave, Now that our Work is done. VVe'll miss our Chapels, operettas, Our paper and our dancesg NVe'll miss the games that we attend, Our clubs and our romances. Sometimes the road was very steep- The teachers helped us climb. They took our hand and led us on When we would lag behind. Since our futures will be shaped By work done in the past, VVe thank them, for they gave to us Foundations that would last. Many feet pass through these halls, Many more will comeg Much wiser students are they when Diplomas they have won. Though a long trail Winds before us NVe'll all keep in our hearts The school that sent us on our way And gave us all our starts. orked -Alison Croft 38 I' mmmmmm mmm 5.53.- MR. li. T.

I don't want to see you go, Time has passed so rapidly, And I'll miss old friends so. I don't want to say good-bye. It means so much to me To be back with old pals again, XVith old friends I can see. f I don't Want to say good-bye To the school we love so much, To books and games and tricks so rare, The high school with the personal touch. I just hate to say good-byeg But I'll be back again, I'll haunt those halls and rooms and books, I'll be back-but When? To the friends we've left behind,- Just feel that gusty sigh!- To the rooms and pals and teachers there, I don't want to say good-bye! --Jean Crooks, '38 f fi7f4" X w X, A , Ps--v-rro I .I 'I Senior Class History Eighth Grade: As Eighth Graders We entered high school, green but eager to discover the mysteries and thrills it offered us. The American Legion awards were earned by Laura Mae Lace and Edwin Sipos. Freshman : As Freshmen we were eligible to join clubs, athletics, and to contribute to musical productions. Sophomore : This year was not particularly outstanding. We became more serious and realized better the real meaning of high school. Junior : XVe were now upperclassmen. Our class proved to be active and showed interest in school affairs. Many members made the varsity football and basket ball teams. We obtained our class rings one year earlier, and, for the first time, organized our class. President ............ EDWIN MovER Vice President . . . ....... EDWIN SIPOS Secretary .... .

Senior 2 ' As nineteen hundred and thirty-eight came around, it brought closer the ending of our school days. For the fourth year Louise Porter was chosen to play the lead in the annual operetta, and again we have a large percentage of lettermen, both in football and basket ball.

S. was new to most of us, although some had attended eighth grade here and were somewhat familiar with our surroundings. During our Hrst year, we numbered three hundred and forty-two members. As the months rolled by, we became acquainted with each other and with the traditions of our Alma Mater. Last year, as Sophomores, there were three hundred and four members in our class. A few of us began to find our places in clubs and other activities. This year, two hundred and ninety-one proud juniors were again sum- moned by the school bell. For the first time we elected officers and were organized as a class unit. President ...... . . HARlJl.D Butxovvskl Vim' President ...... .........

The answering candidates had to be whipped into shape for one of the toughest schedules in many years. Qui' tilt with Jeannette was dropped and Latrobe added. This is the first time we have resumed relations with Latrobe since 1925. September 18-The Blue Devils took to the road for their first game of the season, which was with Ford City. V. H. S. scored first by sending over Shutt on a 52-yard drive. Ford City retaliated and evened the score. Fol- lowing recovery of a blocked punt behind their own goal line, Vandergrift surrendered the game to the Ford-men with an 8-6 score. September 25--Leechburg invaded the Van's gridiron, primed for their annual scrap with the Rosenzweig machine. The Blue Devils were out for a victory to even their loss to the Forders. Playing amid a cloud of dust, the Vans pushed Mascusevicz over the line for three touchdowns, and Miller added an extra point. Thus the Blues chalked up their first victory with the score 19-0. Cctober 9-The Lancers were unable to beat the timekeeper's whistle for a victory or possible tie with the Latrobe eleven on the Red and Black's field. In a cold, drenching rain, both teams showed stubborn resistance to opposition, but the Latrobites were able to pierce the Blue line for the tally which won the game. VVith only a few minutes to go, the Lancers staged a rally which ended on the one-yard line as the whistle blew. The squad re- turned home, bringing the hard-fought 6-0 loss on their books. Cctober 16-Seeking revenge, the Blue Lancers proceeded to whip the strong Kitlanning eleven in an exciting game on the local gridiron. The Kitties rang up seven points and the locals came back to send Shutt over for a goal and extra point. In the second period, the Lancers jumped into the lead through a pass to Mascusevicz and another point by Shutt. Again the Kitties tied the score at 14-all. On a long pass from Zawacki to Stewart the Vans earned a well deserved victory, with a 20-14 score. October 22-The Blues journeyed to Har-Brack for a night tilt in the ever-present rain which has jinxed the game for the past three seasons. Har- Brack marked up six points and the Blue Devils even the score with a pass from Shutt to Stewart. The Greens again jumped into the lead, but, after a rest at the half, Troila skipped over the goal to upset the score. Not to be outdone, the Union boys staged a last minute rally, and clenched the tilt with a winning goal. Score, 19-13, in favor of Har-Brack. uf .Q - - t THE SPECTATOR FOOTBALL SQUAD Uctolwer 50-'l'he uncleteatetl eleven from 'llarentum invarleil the local griil-iron anal went away with the .X-K league championship.
