We have endeavored to put on the following pages some photographs and accounts of the most important events of 1940 in Verona School history. We hope that some of the scenes will represent something of particular significance to you. It may be an activity, a pleasant association or a friend that is the means of your en- joyment of this book. Not only to bring back fond and pleasant memories but as a permanent record of something which you will never again ex- perience, this friendship edition comes to you. .gli MZl4402'y ziencfi LMG vlyfaue ejamfeaf I cannot say, and I will not say That he is dead,-he is just away! With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand, He has wandered into an unknown land, And left us dreaming how very fair It needs must be, since he lingers there, And you, O you, who the wildest yearn For the old time step and the glad return,- Think of him faring on, as dear In the love of there as the love of hereg Think of him still as the same, I say: He is not dead-he is just away! ...James Whitcomb Riley Michael Tuminella I William Glasgow Alcorn Ae FRIENDSH FRIENDSH I FRIENDSH Bertha and Wilto'n wonder what the results of this ex- periment will be. Awe med 0 den IP OF THE CLASSROOM The friendships created during our high school days are part of that destiny which shaped our lives. As we worked over a chemistry experiment, prepared a town hall discussion or struggled over a translation, together, many sides of our classmates were revealed and perhaps a lasting friendship resulted. Our teachers, as they led us on to discover new experiences were aiding us in be- coming friends with them and perhaps later we will look on their influence as a potent force in our development. IP OF THE CLUBS By working together in clubs and organizations through- out the school, we have learned to admire the talents and abilities of other and have seen many worthwhile friendships established. Finding boys or girls whose in- terests were similar to our own stimulated us in our par- ticular activity. High moral standards qualities oi leadership, journalistic training and ability to create are some of the aims and purposes of our organizations. Association with people well trained in some particular field of endeavor may prove to become a lasting friendship. IP IN SPORTS It has been shown that athletics have played a par- ticular part in the formation of friendships. As other teams were encountered on the gridiron, basketball court, or track field we learned to admire the prowess oi others. Each individual on the team realized the importance of friendliness if his team worked together harmoniously and as a unit. Team play, cooperation and good sports- manship were stressed by all the athletic leaders and every participant realized the importance of these qualities if the best results were to be attained. " Learn to play" has been our motto. den Future homemakers as they draw up their plans and learn to bake a cake are busy at their respective jobs. "Don't forget the baking powder" is a familiar cry to these aspiring cooks. Touch, speed and ac- curacy become im- portant in operating these machines. Who would ever believe that cedar chests and lamps could be produced here and that perfect copies could be made by amateurs. 5 Me Qadjtoom . g..1.w 'g6fl4fll?1l..'fZc'Z1ZLl.VZ an gl,QZZVl1'fl.l'l The endless stream of chattering voices of the hundreds of students who have graduated has long been silenced. Only faint echoes, the voice of the spirit of the youth of Verona, remain to represent it at the meet- ings of the Board of Education, where several Verona graduates are serving on this board. On the second Monday of every month these five citizens, chosen by the people of Verona to supervise the education of their children, assemble and transact the business of the school district. Subject to state regulations, the duties of the Board of Education are definitely outlined by a school code. Collectively, these duties concern the supervision of all school activities, finances, buildings, grounds, supplies and curriculum!all receive due consideration. At meetings of this group, vacancies are filled, resignations are accepted, taxes are levied and provisions are made for the purchase of books and school supplies. Through the efforts of these friends of education, school repairs have been made and in this manner the path of knowledge is made smoother and more accessible to the younger generation of Verona. Only the clamor of thronged corridors breaks the orderly and business like silence of the two offices located in the Junior and Senior High School buildings. In one Dr. J. W. C. Remaley, the supervising prin- cipal and Miss Blanche Lindemuth work together. In the other, Mr. Alfred Snyder faces the problems and duties of a high school principal. But their duties are not confined to the narrow limits of these offices. To these individuals, many intimate and individual problems of the students are brought. These men are efiiciently assisted, Dr. Remaley by Julia Maroni and Mr. Snyder by a corps of student office workers. Miss Blanche Lindemuth, who supervises the junior High, has been with us in Verona school for number of years and the school just wouldn't seem the same without her. She has been a great friend, as well as a teacher, to most of the students now in school and to many of the alumni. Thus with the combined efforts of these individuals as administrative heads, a school year moves along steadily and smoothly. 54.015 . .. Harry Pierce, Frank Hogan, U. G. Palmer, R, R.

Mr. Snyder who teaches chemistry is preparing a class demonstration. Miss Pierce has some "microbes" on a slide to show her sophomore biology class. Mr. Brammer looks pleased as he inspects the projects of the boys. Little wonder they like shop and mechanical drawing, with such a con- genial instructor. The overseers of the library are in a get-to-gether. Mrs. Cushard who served as librarian from four o'clock until nine when the library was open to the public, has now resigned and Miss Durst is in charge. Miss Lindley who teaches Latin and history, has a group of Seniors who re- port to her in this room while Mrs. Fehrenbach who teaches French and history restrains a group of sophomores who have the library for a report room. Miss McCollum and Miss Hunter in a little informal gathering. Miss McCollum is serving some delicious tea made by her home economics class for maybe the boy's cooking clubj to Miss Hunter. This is the pause that refreshed Miss Hunter and aided her to carry on her art work for the day. Mr. Brown and Mr. Douds look like they are glad when school is out. Probably Mr. Brown's typing and bookkeeping classes were "practical joking" again. I wonder if Mr. Douds is telling some of the boners pulled in P.O.D. class, or perhaps his algebra and plane geometry classes serve as the topic of conversation. Maybe they are just talking as teach- ers have a way of doing. Mrs. Palmer and Coach Wild, athletic directors, are probably laugh- ing about the results of the Verona-Oakmont basketball games. Al- though the girls team, coached by Mrs. Palmer, did not have many games scheduled, they had a successful season. Doctor Remaley's secretary, Miss Maroni, is ringing Mr. Snyder. Julia is everybody's friend. Besides being Doctor Remaley's personal secretary she will help anybody else out when she is free to do so. The Junior and Freshman English teachers are giving a demonstra- tion. Miss McCullough, Freshman teacher, seems to be dictating to Miss Lindemuth. Diagramming is one of the subjects which is not al- ways a favorite with all the students. We wonder who that "you be quiet" glance was meant for. Miss Claypool, sponsors the Junior class. She is pictured as she is running off some work on the ditto machine. Even though she has a staff of N .Y.A. workers under her supervision to do the work, you can always find her working hard. Mr. Brallier who left at mid-term to take another position, taught civics and first year algebra. Mrs. Helen Henggi who replaced him in Verona, hails from Oakmont but served as teacher here a few years ago in the physical education de- partment. She, Miss Rupert, Mr. Boydston, and Miss Steffy seem to be collaberating on the advance copy of the year book. Judging from their smiles maybe they are looking at their own pictures. The latter three all teach English at various stages of the game. Miss Steffy and Mr. Boydston in the Junior High and Miss Rupert to the Sophomores and Seniors. 11 Seniors 1940 ALBERT LQMBARDOZZI WILLIAM ALCORN MUSICSI minded Albert is His grand personality will :Stays found with his trum- take him far in the future.

Verona's four cheer- leaders strut their stuff in a practice session. They're all "up in the air" at least.

The coaches meet some of their cohorts as classes change on a summery day. What is the discussion? Bet it's football. land! 7gl.6H6Z4A9Q on Me Qi Zion Verona High School's current season of football, although not so successful, was one of the best in cooperation and fellowship. Due to injuries from the severe first encounter some of the boys were unable to put out their best efforts from that time on. The first game of the season, Verona encountered a fast and powerful Wilkinsburg squad and consequently the Verona boys bowed in defeat. The second contest took place on the Edgewood field and had not the breaks gone against the boys they would have had their first victory but the game ended with one touchdown chalked up for Edgewood. Our first home game was against Sharpsburg and with the good fight- ing spirit and the school's cooperation the boys had their first victory. The game ended with a score of twelve to six amid cheering and the beating drums of the new V.H.S. band. The next game was a night game at Arnold. The boys were not as yet accustomed to night football. As a result the game ended with Arnold the victor. At the Aspinwall game, Verona was in the thick of the fight until an injury put Joe DeVita out of the game. This loss seemed to weaken the boy's spirit and Aspinwall scored two decisive touchdowns. Brentwood was the next foe and here the boys met an experienced squad who took them by surprise by putting over four touchdowns. Verona traveled to East McKeesport and there met a worthy foe. A completed pass in the closing seconds of the first half proved fatal to Verona and the game ended with the score of seven to nothing. The game of the season had at last arrived. "Oakmont". Our boys efforts were all in vain to try to stop the march of their rivals for Oak- mont emerged victorious by a score of twelve to nothing. First row: Machen J. Tuc- key, Lombardozzi, C.

But coming up from last year's Junior Varsity were a few boys who had the earmarks of Varsity performers, and from this group Coach Wild found Bud Remaley and Charlie Den- tino fighting it out for one forward position, and Warner Anthony and Quimiro battling for the right to start on the other side. In the center position, Bertosa and Zakraysek had things their own way as far as new members were concerned. In the backcourt, Mehelic stepped through- out the season. For three years, Albert Lombardozzi had knocked on the door of Varsity competition, but each year an old knee injury would crop up to throw Al for a loss. This year, however, the knee behaved well enough to give him a chance to show his ability on the hardwood, and it was nip and tuck all the Way through between Al and "Ace" Mauro, the sparkplug of the team. Although Intorre, DeFazio and James Tuckey did not get a chance to break into as many games as the other members of the squad, their presence was an important factor throughout the season. More should be heard of this young squad next year. Verona boys won five and lost sixteen games. Several last minute rallies seemed to be the cause of most of the defeats, They defeated Oakmont at both counts and this is only an example of what our boys are going to do in football and basketball next year. 31 Verona Verona Verona Verona Verona Verona Verona Verona Verona Verona N Score 28 23 32 32 36 37 26 0 28 41 SENIOR VARSITY SCORES Score E.

Many girls and boys found time to participate in the varied sports program offered, which was carried out in a manner similar to the other years. Gym curricula developed seasonally. In the fall there is football and basketball, and the fundamentals are taught in the gymnasium. The winter presents a grand panorama of activities with exercises, basketball and boxing. In the spring the shrill screams of the girls are heard as they engage in a fast moving game of volley ball, while the boys have a grand game of mushball up on the Hyatt M. Cribbs Field. Gym periods allow for sixty minutes of fun and exercise for boys and girls alike. Sometimes this is spent in hard manual labor over exercise, stretching those unused muscles whose names we have to learn in our health classes and other days we play at some more lively games. Nomatter what it is from the seventh grade through to the twelfth, fun is a part of the program Learning to play is so important to all of us and entering into a good volley ball, mushball or football contest, whether it be for a trophy or championship or for mere fun is always worthwhile. The Allegheny County track meet at South Park brought forth some our shining track stars and some records were shattered by our con- testants. The sports program for the year offered much enjoyment to those who participated in the program. To Mrs. Palmer and Mr. Wild, who by their faithful planning of these activities have helped to make them so successful and popular, the boys and girls wish to express their sin- cere appreciation. 34 Q in 3 zzz .. yz zslq f .A .,,,h:: 5 5 f, ,J Q E:.,. ?

It has nevertheless, and today the membership totals fifty and it is still growing. During the football season the band performed very accreditably in comparison with other bands of much longer standing. Marching for- mations and the like all required practice and Mrs. Palmer coached the group in marching. In March this group held a concert in the auditorium. Many people came and enjoyed it throughout, but much practice was necessary for this performance and each member is to be complimented for his service. The band is sponsored by a mother's committee and the uniforms were gotten through the unstinting work of this group. Lawn fete, concert, movies and a bake sale were held and many letters written asking or- ganizations for donations. All this work netted sufficient funds to outfit the members of the band. This committee is to be commended for their hard labor. GLEE CLUB IN FULL SWING , This year the Glee Club has been much more active than any year previous. It is composed of thirty-five students. Before this year, the Club was in two groups, the Boy's Glee Club and the Girl's Glee Club, but now it is a combined group The mixed group has proved to be much more successful. This club has been under the direction of VMiss Jane McCullough for the past three years. Among their activities were two assembly programs. Their first chance to entertain the whole student body was an assembly program at Christmas time, when they sang a group of carols. Later a Stephen Foster program was arranged. The operetta "Rose of the Danubef' presented by this group earlier in the year, was a great success. SWING BAND ORGANIZED Music! The soft mellow tone of the saxophone, the mingling of the notes of the trumpets and trombones, the singing tones of the guitar and the gay tinkling sound of the piano, lovely soothing music, gay dance music. Who is playing? Why, of course, the Verona High School Swing Band. Maybe it didn't sound quite like this all the time. This group was organized about four months ago by the band conductor, Mr. Louis Mango. The members of the orchestra were selected from the band membership and the group made their first public appearance when the Band Concert was held in March. Trumpets, saxophones, trombones, piano, accordian, drums and guitars are heard in this band. Many school functions could be ably served by this active group of school musicians. 39 I nlvvu sf o., ., ' I ' 4,4 Mom!! . We meme of Me -ff Q SENIOR HI-Y Howard C. Douds has sponsored the Senior Hi-Y for several years and has produced successful organizations throughout. This year's group consisted of eighteen members interested in the aims of the organization. One of the first assembly programs, a unique quiz pro- gram, a battle of the sexes, was sponsored by this group. I believe the males defeated the females by a small margin. The group enjoyed a trip to the Buhl Planetarium on the North Side, an unusual and rare treat for the youths of our locality. A party was held for members only and movies were shown to the group. The club has had various speakers at their meetings and feel that they have all been worth attending. JUNIOR H1-Y Under the capable supervision of Mr. Brallier, Mrs. Henggi, and Mr. Boydston, the varied activities of the junior Hi-Y have made for one of the most successful associations in Verona's history. Its officers have promoted many successful activities. Various educational trips and swimming parties have been but a part of their numerous activities. As well as taking part in our assembly programs, this group of youths have helped to promote higher ideals and greater associations among the students of the Junior High School, and has maintained the pledge and creed of the association to which they belong. The members of this organization are chosen from the eighth grade and these members are then automatically active in the club the following year. The president of the Junior Hi-Y this year is Charles Tuckey, who has promoted one of the best years of the organization. 40 1.

The club is celebrating its seventh successful year in Verona High School. To be a member one must be voted in by the girls of the club and take part in the initiation stunts. Numerous dances, parties and trips to different places of interest are some of the activities. The club will lose many old members this year, but there are many more girls anxious to fill their places. Tl is group usually earns enough money by dances, bakesales or sale of refreshments at football games to buy jackets for their members. This year's group plans to buy light blue ones rather than the traditional white. The name of the group implies that they are leaders and they are in all Eelds in V.H.S. In athletics, activities, scholarsl: ip, popularity and dancing, these girls are foremost. They are always willing to assist in any way. BOXING CLUB This group is sponsored by our capable coach, Mr. Wild. In this group the boys are taught the art of self defense. Mr. Wild and his assistants teach the boys to train, to exercise and to apply the simple rules of boxing. At one of our Assemblies this club put on a show con- sisting of about Eve bouts between boys of different weights. The program was a big success and enjoyed by everyone. The ring was assembled and the lights were carried on like real championship bouts The rounds were three minutes and each bout consisted of three rounds This club has rendered a great service to the school and to the boys who have improved their physical condition and boxing ability through this club's actibities. In April a Boxing Show was sponsored by the group and Verona competed with boys of Penn High, Carrick and Oliver. These matches were interesting and attracted a large number of the male populace of Verona. 43 VAYIIH g':' ..:,V ,U A ' qqff We Mfdxij -Q .Qqe High Pressure Homer The entire action of the play takes place in the living room of the Woodruff family. And what a family it is! Mother Woodruff just adores going to funerals because she finds them so stimulating and meets so many of her friends there. Father Woodruff loves to go to fires, nothing else gives him such keen joy! Junior Woodruff, their son, is of mechanical bend. He can fix anythingf and he doesb and he also gets a great joy from shooting a rifle. Boots, their daughter, loves to act and is rehearsing a part at the most inopportune times. Amidst all this confusion, Aunt Cora arrives bringing with her what turns out to be a pet, and that too of a most unusual nature. Arlene, the Woodruff 's adopted daughter, is practically engaged to Homer Hampton Haywood, who believes in employing high pressure salesmanship methods. Since Homer, a typical go-getter, always knows more than his employer, he never holds a job very long. But that doesn't bother him-he goes blissfully on his way inventing new ways of making a fortune. Finally young Wade Wain- right arrives on the scene and falls a victim to Arlene's charms. When the self-assured and confident Homer plunges the entire Woodruff family into grief, Arlene breaks her engagement and vows never to see Homer again. But our indomitable hero has several cards up his sleeve and proceeds to play them up to a thrilling climax. The play proved to be a great success and was enjoyed by everyone who attended. ROSE OF THE DANUBE The story takes place in the kingdom of Eurolania in Europe along the banks of the blue Danube. On the morning of our story the king is very blue because of the royal treasury being exhausted. A villain, Count Sergius von Popova is plotting to start a revolution. He is as- sisted by Demetrius Doodledorf and Trombonius Tootletop. The attention of the populace is being distracted for a while by the Rose Festival. Some visitors for the occasion are Darrel Davis, a news photographer and Percival McPipp, a movie director, who is accom- panied by Mrs. McPipp and their daughter. The Royal family beg and pester the movie director to put them into the movies. Mr. McPipp being so intrigued with the beauty of the kingdom gets the idea of having a motion picture made of the kingdom. The story, of course, includes a revolution but blank cartridges and dynamite are used. But the scoundrel Count, sees a good opportunity to make a real revolution. Unknovsm to him, however, Darrel Davis overhears the plot, uncovers it, saves the king and is the alll around hero, collecting a reward of course. All ends on a happy note. 44 Four principals of "Rose of the Danube" stop in their dancing and pose for the photographer. The uni- form certainly makes the man.

Although there is but one group of this club this year, there were many applications. The number is limited, but this does not decrease their anxiety to cook, to bake, and to eat their own finished products. These master chefs have created such things this year as lemon pie, banana pie, fruit cake, peanut brittle, salmon croquettes and muffins. Everything has been eaten too. Some of the boys have shown great im- provement this year and there have been few errors such as, putting in too much baking powder. Perhaps the reason for their doing such a line job of mixing is due to the fact that they have to eat what they make. Some do like to double the recipe. Many of the so called "tough guys" around school have shown that they are only regular fellows when they don their aprons and begin to bake a cake for lunch. This group has already had a luncheon, and are looking forward to a banquet in the future. AIRPLANE CLUB BUILD MODELS The Airplane Club is just a new club organized this year by Mr. Brammer, our manual training teacher. The boys in this club have built many different kinds of model planes and a contest is being planned for the best looking and the best flying planes. Making these models is not as easy as one might imagine from reading the directions. The pur- pose of this club is to cultivate the interests of those boys who are in- terested in airplanes. Part of an assembly program was used by this group to explain their work. The makings of an airplane were displayed and it was seen that the work is very tedious and requires careful hand- ling of each tiny piece. Several large model planes were shown by Teddy Woodings and Regis Hunkele. These were actually propelled by small motors and really worked. This club is very creative and most inter- esting for boys of all ages. 46 BOYS COOKING CLUB First row: Martin, Costa, Anthony, Beddingfield, Colonello, Gug liuzza.

Here we find thirty-nine Junior High School members who are interested in handcrafts. These people do work in leather, crepe paper and do bead work, knitting and raffia weaving. Crepe paper was taken, cut and rolled and then used over a paper plate and in a short time variegated baskets in various shapes were pro- duced. These were shellacked and used at home for knick-knacks. Purses of leather were made and gloves and mittens were turned out by the knitters of the group. One of their social functions of the year was a Christmas Party, held during their club period before Christmas. We know that they had fun. THE SHOW MUST GO ON Now that the curtain has fallen on another year of activities, the Dramatic Club can look backward on another successful year. The club under the direction of their sponsor and adviser Mr. Brown, has worked on one act plays and discussed the topic of Dramatics. Two of the plays which were presented in Assembly were "Be Home By Midnight," and "Telephone Calls." These plays were very entertaining and showed considerable work. There are nineteen members in the club all of which are active. The Club's main purpose is to promote interest in the study of plays and to develop the ability to read them. 48 HANDCRAFT CLUB First row: Shultz, Lanious, Bolster, Coover, Allman, Woods, Rice Pyle, White, Pritchard, Margaret Steffey Csponsorj.

Answering the phone, typing and running errands keeps this group busy. 50 MONITORS HELP TO GOVERN Stationed at various places throughout the building, the job of the monitors is to keep order before and after school as well as between classes. This group has to be particularly on the alert to keep their positions. A few monitors have served the entire semester, but most of them have changed from time to time. It is a hard job and means sacrificing time. One must come early and remain until the building has been cleared. Sometimes it even means losing the last few minutes of important discussion in the classroom. The principal thing is that the monitors must stay at their posts, and Joe Liberto, head monitor, sees that they do stay there. The monitors must be stern and yet not be mean and bossy. "KEEP BUSY", THAT'S OUR MOTTO The ofiice force is one of the hardest working organizations in school. This is not a club but a real honest to goodness staff of workers, whose various duties in the office include writing excuses for people who can't be on time, doing errands, answering the telephone, and acting as gen- eral hostess to all the people who visit the office. Selected by Mr. Snyder from Senior High School the girls prove to be very efficient in their work. They were picked because of these qualities: relaibility, honesty, ability to carry out orders, daily attendance, personality and last but far from least, leadership. Each girl has one period a day, which serves both as a study period and as an office practice, session where real experience is gained. This will be helpful later on in life when office jobs become a reality with a weekly or monthly pay envelope. .51 M-MA QZKZLZJ .QU Gem upetwfzon ff' ,J ,ff ,z f, , k.,. .

The members are as friendly and pleasant as their pictures indicate. They are always ready, with a smile and a cheerful "hello" and their presence brightens the school Perhaps the busiest social group in the school is the Leaders Club who have spent their time earning money and being helpful to the school in numerous ways. Selling tickets to football games and for other school functions was one of many "little odd jobsi' done by these girls for dear old "Alma Mater". It looks as if these four Hi-Y members were planning a way to make money or a way to spend it. Either is typical of this group. Earning money by holding dances and selling Easter Eggs, spending money on emblems and social functions were the chief thoughts of the boys through- out the year. As this striking photograph illustrates Laura Jean leads the band, which has been our newest pride and joy this year. We were not only proud of their new uniforms, but of the way they have been striving to improve through long, hard drilling practices. Their appearance at games has given the school a new life. The ofiice force as represented by Janet's picture is not a social or- ganization. It is primarily to give the school girls practice and relieve Mr. Snyder's burdens in the High School office. .53 2-7oA'z'Zc5 an! grain eu gm ine STUDENT COUNCIL NEWLY ORGANIZED "Court is now in session". These are the opening words of the Stu- dent Court, which is just one of the many activities of this representative body. A mid-year election of new members inauguarated this active group, which was destined to become an outstanding organization of our school. As a representative body of the various home rooms, they arrange the school calendar, direct the monitor activity, handle the student prob- lems as well as conducting a Court where student misdemeanors are tried. The tea dance season was inaugurated by the group when a repre- sentative group of students from the entire school turned out and made the dance a great success. Under the supervision of Mr. Howard Douds, this group made a place for itself in Verona High School. COMMERCIAL CLUB INTERESTS GIRLS During the activity periods this club may be found having lots of fun. Maybe it is a spelling bee, a typing contest or even mending typewriter covers but nevertheless doing it together makes it seem like play not work. Special programs for both Lincoln's and Washington's birthdays were carried on within the club at the regular club period. Practice in using the typewriter was always a pleasant filler-in when program ac- tivities lagged. A Christmas party and a Valentine party were held by the club and a trip to the Pittsburgh Press was enjoyed. A play demonstrating the correct way to apply for a position was presented in assembly and some good pointers were given those who wish to continue in the business world. 54 STUDENT COUNCIL First row: Lyter, Frazier, Zakraysek, Abercrombie, Peretic.

This has been brought about by the valuable guidance of Miss Rupert and the cooperation of the thirty members of the staff. The staff consists of boys and girls chosen from the sophomore, junior and senior classes by the adviser. Work was started early in the year and through constant effort the book was completed, sent to the press and was ready for distribution by the middle of May. Miss Rupert, Bill Alcorn and june Babilon at- tended the Pennsylvania State Press Association Convention at Read- ing, Pennsylvania in October. This was the second time Verona had participated in a convention of this sort but it was a new experience for these two students. Some of the tasks done by the hard working Purple and Gold Staff are as follows: typing, gathering information about clubs, proof reading, art work and writing facts about the school. In addition to work, the staff enjoys social get-to-gethers. For ex- ample, a Christmas party was held in the upper halls of the Senior High School Building a few days before Christmas during the lunch hour. At which time, games, dancing and eating were the main features. In April, twelve members of the Staff attended the Westem Penn- sylvania School Press Association Convention, held in Allegheny High School. Ideas for year books and school papers were exchanged by people from different schools all over the section of the state and this is very helpful in getting ideas for the annual. 56 Eddie calls the advertisers while the rest laugh at his businesslike manner.

After much con- sideration these pupils were chosen by the faculty. The members are elected into this society more for their rank in the class than upon grades. The members have been of service to the school and looked up to by the rest of the student body. If you wonder why the Juniors are so perfect or if you imagine you see tiny halos around their headsg it is in hope of being elected into the society when the Senior members initiate new- comers. Appealing to the sense of gratitude for educational benefits received, and the hope to develop fruitful personalities, the National Honor Society endeavors to capitalize on these emotions.
