M ' CL ASSES IN T 1 '2 I EDUCATIONAL LEADERS Jim, B BOARD OF EDUCATION Standing: John Grogan, Harry Pierce, Paul Bright. Seated: Fred Shoemaker, Robert Morford, John Moritz, John Young. This year the board lost a member and gained a member. Many other changes have been made this year, but we find the president, Mr. Bright, and vice-president, Mr. Morford, are still leading the meetings. New problems have arisen and although some have caused diFFiculty these men have come through with the proper solutions. Teachers and students alike have been aided by this organization. Aside from the work these men do in their meetings, they are very busy with other activities. Basketball games, dances, and other extra-curricular activities are attended by our board members. President .. , Paul Bright Vice President . Robert Morford Treasurer .. ., , John Young Secretary .. Harry Pierce 8 Howard C. Douds - Supervising Principal At the head of the faculty is our principal, Mr. Douds. Through his oftice all the activities of the School are planned and every day the problems of many stu- dents are solved with his help. Mr. Douds has become well known throughout V. H. S. as a congenial and cap- able leader. Kermit Anderson - High School Principal This is the man who promotes the general welfare of the senior high school students. He is kept busy sched- uling activities and issuing excuses to those who have been absent. Mr. Anderson has many other chores, in- cluding presiding over assemblies and interpreting the rules and regulations to fit all cases. Blanche Lindemuth - Junior High School Principal Although we know that the business of the school is carried on in Mr. Douds' oftice, one of the busiest places is just across the hall. There you'll find Miss Lindemuth. If you know anything about Verona Schools, you know her. She has long been the 'Favorite of students, which may be due to her magnetic personality. 9 Howard C.

The first year passed, the second, too, and soon came Junior High: Our high school days would soon begin, the time kept fiying by. Our Freshman year was here and gone before we thought about it. The Sophomore class of '46, the best, no one dare doubt it! As Juniors we received our rings and also held our dance, We planned the Prom and Junior Play a long time in advance. And finally the time had come for us to move ahead, As Seniors, we realized we must lead and not be led. The day of graduation lay just around the bend, Too swiftly life in Verona High was drawing to an end. Our days in school are over, and now we will confess The time we spent in V. H. S. was filled with happiness. No matter what a Senior says, he stands with heart downcast To think that his own Senior Class is now part of the past. We all pretend we're glad we're through, but this is lust a show- The way we feel down in our hearts only a Senior can know. by Tom Marchese 'I2 Apostolos L. Budich sr' Apostolos N.

Maroon and white were the colors we chose As our prom decorations when the tour years close. The Freshman hike was really swell, And everyone liked it very well. We all came packed with lots of food While everyone was in a happy mood. Our own class party was a big success, It was full of fun and happiness. We've had lots of fun every day, And now a lot more is coming our way. As the year rolls on and on All our Freshman fun is gone, But the next three years will be a hit And we'll try to make the best of it. We'll pass this year to a lower grade, And with the Sophomores we'll make a trade. by NONNIE EILER and NANCY MORRILL 25 jhej 'Ln U. .,S,. E I G H T H G R A D E First Row: C. Viores, S. McWilliams, S.

These words are familiar to every Hi-Y member. Their purpose, service, is realized in a six-fold program-service to members, community, nation, world, God and school-by personally accepting responsibility for the best Academic effort: by participating in extra-curricular and student-faculty activity: by offering to help in the many situations that arise where student co-operation and organization are necessary.

The Hi-Y organization should enable high school boys to be able to deal with their per- sonal problems as well as to realistically face the kind of world they live in. The Hi-Y has many worthy objectives. lt strives to deepen their Christian convictions, to understand the meaning of democracy and dem- onstrate how it operates, and to prepare for citi- zenship and active participation in community life.

The code of Y-Teens, "World Fellowship," was pro- moted by all these activities. Some of the club members enjoyed a swimming party at the YWCA in town. Most of them attended a dance given by the Y-Teens from this district. lt has been felt that a successful year has been spent. President .......,....,.,.,, ...,.,.....

It represents the fundamental objectives for which schools are instituted and gives recognition to those who have attained most nearly the desired ends. The Constitution of this national organization recognizes four cardinal obiec- tives as fundamental in all educational practice: Scholarship, Character, Leader- ship, and Service. To exalt these obiectives and hold them ever before the school as goals towards which all should strive, is the purpose of this Society. Our aim shall be to hold before the school such motives as shall induce others to aspire to scholarly habits, to enlist in worthy service and to lead forward in all things that shall advance the welfare of the school. The main advantages of the Society are to define and set standards for the ideal high school student, to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to promote lead- ership, to develop character, and to stimulate a desire to render service. The emblem of the Society is the Keystone, which bears at its base the letters S, L, C, and S, and a flaming torch. To you, the members of the National Honor Society, we say "Keep the torch of high ideals burning." 32 R. Pyle, R. Hartman, N Tatalovich STUDENT COUNCIL Kneeling: A. Bozik, R. Pyle, S.

They have striven to carry out these principles as we as o nation have striven to carry out the principles of the Constitution of the United States. As servants of the students and faculty, they have, to the utmost of their ability, promoted student paricipotion, served as a medium between the faculty and the student body, and contributed to the general welfare of the school by helping to foster school spirit and fellowship. Their accomplishments deserve more than a passing remark from all of us. Our remarks should be, "Well done, and more power to you in the future, Student Council."

YEARBOOK SOLICITORS ff U01 Many of us realize the importance of financing the yearbook. We know that in order to have a "Purple and Gold," we must work for it. First of all, there is the soliciting of ads for the yearbook. Mrs. Higginbotham chose eight reliable and dependable students to take over the task. Under her guidance, they learned the art of salesman- ship and courtesy. Although they met with some difficulty in securing the ads, they retained their spirit. They all agreed that wherever they went, they were received in a friendly manner. They were un- easy at first, but then fears vanished. Eagerly, they went to work to obtain their goal. We should be proud of them and Mrs. Higgin- botham for doing such a splendid job. They did a great deal in help- ing to finance our "Purple and Gold." 35 Kneeling: R. Hartman R Pyle T Mar chese, B.

Strunk MAJORETTES This year our girls spent many hours perfecting routines to go with the band drills. They didn't have to rely entirely on their own ingen- uity because of the instructions they received from their director, Mr. Bongiovanni. One girl is chosen from each grade from eight to twelve to repre- sent that class on the maiorette squad. Each girl chosen must prove herself capable in new routines before she is accepted. The senior member is head maiorette for the season and soon learns the right commands to put the band through their paces. A lot of credit is due to these girls who put forth so much effort to make our band successful and attractive. 36 VERONA BAND Jazz, Umonah, 9 ' Early in the fall before school began the prospective band members met with their new director, Mr. Bongiovanni. At this meeting and the ones that followed they became acquainted with the director and his plans. It was obvious to every- one that the year would bring a lot of hard work. The first week of school found the band practicing morning and evening for the football games. The townspeople saw many new formations and drills and were pleased with the new ideas. Immediately after football season they began practicing for the spring con- cert. Novelty numbers and several classics brought to the band a new type of program and again the audience was pleased by the variety offered. Throughout the year the band has played for assemblies, plays, and pro- grams of all kinds. Band-T. Mavchese, J. Liberto, B. Knapp, J. Vescio, D. Knapp, J. Beers, P. Kastanias, G. White, B.

The girls of our Glee Club even looked like angels as they stood on the stage of the dimly lighted auditorium with their long, flow- ing gowns in pastel shades giving the scene a touch of ethereal beauty. This group under the direction of Mr. Bongiovanni gave iust the right touch to the musical activities at V. H. S. during this past year, and they shall continue to do so through the years to come. BOYS GLEE CLUB In true masculine tone the strains of "Dona Nobis" rose over the hushed audience as a new and better Boys Glee Club made its debut. This group, in- spired by an enthusiastic Mr. Bongiovanni, brought music to our ears unlike any we've heard in our auditorium for years. The many hours of hard work put in by all were not wasted. The crescen- does' and pianissimos and fortissimos were almost near perfection. The fine performances given at Christmas time and in the assemblies were a splendid surprise and in the future we would like to hear more fine renditions. It was a joy listening to such a well-rehearsed group. MUSIC CLUB Appreciation of good music took a special part in activities at V. H. S. when Mr. Bongiovanni organized a music club. In the foreground of this group's activities is the effort to give recognition to those of our lucky student body who possess real talent. They have shown that they know the value of the phono- graph by letting it have its say at meetings, which goes all the way from Bach to James-Harry, that is. 39 Jffww B11 ' CIVICS CLUB The Civics Club, an organization of 'fresh- man students, undertakes such projects as the Community Chest and the Red Cross Drive, in order to stimulate activities which will provoke thought and arouse interest for such worthy causes. The main purposes of the club are to encourage intelligent thinking, the setting up of high ideals, and the practice of these ideals in every day life. President . .. ..

Our cheerleaders, under the sponsorship of Mr. Bongiovanni, were very trim this year in their new uniforms. They wore purple skirts and yellow varsity sweaters. Mrs. Bell, our Home Ec. teacher, made their skirts. These girls-Peggy, Jane, Betty Jane, Babe, Martha, Marilyn, and Pat-did a wonderful job in keeping up the morale, both of the team and of the student body. They were always energetic and peppy. Realizing the importance of their iob, they carried on even though things may have looked bad for the team. A great deal of time was spent in working with new cheers and revising old ones. It took ca lot of thinking to find new motions for the cheers. They should be given credit for their marvelous work. In giving credit to the Senior High Cheerleaders, we must not forget the Junior High Cheerleaders. Having been chosen at the end of the '47 school year, they have shown that they are quite capable of slipping into their places in the Senior High squad when their time comes. Due to their late organization, we regret to say that we have no picture of them. 44 P. Gaines, M. Leppold M Budich P Antal M. Dible, J. O'Connell B J Bell AT TH Five minute break Long may it sfand!

FOOTBALL Millvale-19 Verona-6 ln this, the first game of the year, Verona was baffled by Millvale's tricky T offense. Verona was stunned as Millvale carried across a score in the first few minutes of the game. Millvale again scored and convened in the second quarter. At half time the score stood Millvale 'I3-Verona 0. In the third quarter Verona got its only score when Bright, intercepting a Millvale pass, dashed 60 yards for the touchdown. Bright failed to convert. In the fourth quarter a Millvale back twisted 30 yards for the third and final score. Edgewood-13 Verona-6 In the first quarter of the game Edgewood scored on a long pass. They failed to convert. ln the second, Verona marched 80 yards down the field to score. Here Hawk scored on a pass from Costa. Verona failed to convert. At the half the score stood at 6-6. The third quarter was a stalemate as both teams played scoreless ball. In the fourth quarter they again scored by means of a long pass. This time they con- verted. Verona could not score again, and the game ended with Edgewood the winner. East McKeesport-19 Verona-0 ln the third game of the season Verona faced East McKees- port who was undefeated in Class B running. In the first quar- ter East McKeesport recovered a Verona fumble on the five yard line. A few plays later they scored from the one foot line. The second period touchdown was made when a blocked kick was recovered in the end zone. The half ended with East McKeesport leading by two touchdowns. In the third quarter neither team could score. In the fourth quarter East McKees- port again blocked a kick and recovered on the five yard line. This set up the third touchdown and the conversion was good. St. Justin-7 Verona-6 Verona's failure to convert cost them the fourth defeat of the season. In the first quarter St. Justin scored on a long pass. The kick for the extra point was partly blocked but the point was still good. There was no scoring in the second quarter. The half ended with St. Justin leading, 7-O. The third quarter was scoreless. In the fourth quarter Verona marched down the field and scored on a pass from Turpin to Hawk in the end zone. The pass for the extra point was blocked and the game ended with Verona losing a heartbreaker, 7-6. Hampton-7 Verona-'I2 Late in the first quarter Verona's hard-charging line re- covered a fumble in the end zone for the first score. The con- version failed. In the second quarter Loggi, after intercepting a pass, raced 60 yards, only to be dragged down on the one yard line. From here Hawk scored the second touchdown on a plunge. Again the conversion failed. At the half the score stood 12-0. ln the third quarter Hampton, capitalizing on a fumble, drove across a score. The conversion was good. In the fourth quarter neither team could score. Thus, Verona snatched their first win of the season. Unfwna, P nn, Hfuklbzon, HOW WE FARED Mlllvale . ,,.. . ,.., .. Edgewood .

The fourth quarter neither team scored, although Verona was threatening when the game ended. Plum-0 Verona-0 Early in the first quarter Plum completed a long pass which carried to the Verona eight yard line. Verona braced and held for downs on their own ten-yard line. In the second quarter neither team threatened. Then in the third quarter both teams battled up and down the field but neither could score. The fourth quarter saw Plum threatening again but was stop- ped on the ten by Verona. Verona-32 Sharpsburg-0 Verona High's grid machine finally hit their scoring stride against Sharpsburg. Verona scored in the first quarter after recovering a Sharpsburg fumble. Turpin passed to Gould for the first score. The attempt for extra point failed. In the sec- ond quarter Verona marched sixty yards with Bright taking it over from the eight yard line. The conversion failed. In the last half Verona was able to pick up three touchdowns.

The second half saw a highly aroused Verona team march 80 yards to a touchdown after the kickoff. Bright scored from the 5-yard line. The conversion failed. The score was tied at 6-6.

WILLIAM TURPIN-Ben was one of the two re- turning Iettermen. Besides being co-captain, he was high scorer for the year. JAMES KUNTZ-Jim was another returned letter- man. Although he didn't make too many points, his floor play was a great asset. Coach Mon acc Bill Turpin Earl Schwartz Richie Papp EARL SCHWARTZ--Earl will remain immortal for his spectacular climax to the Oakmont game. GEORGE KCHNEN-George, although the small- est player on the team, did his best to help the quintet reach its goal.

The football season started, and just like a gale, We lost to Edgewood, East McKeesport, and Millvale. ln the middle of all the confusion, the teachers dressed up in their best, While they went to Institute we stayed home to rest. The remaining games with Hampton, St. Justin, and Sharpsburg werent so bad, But the last game of the season was really sad. Our last word to Oakmont is that they've got something to fear When they see the team we have lined up for next year. The Juniors surprised us with their very fine play, And a week later with their dance, which was the hit of the day Reverend Hilbert gave the prayer for Thanksgiving And gave thanks for the great world in which we are living. The way our basketball season started was beyond speech And the goal we made last year, we were sure again to reach. The Christmas Cantata was the greatest sensation, For a long time Verona had not witnessed such a presentation. After vacation we lost to East Deer and West Deer, too, But we beat Millvale, Aspinwall, Hampton and Plum, to name ius January ninth was really the treat, For on that day it was Oakmont we beat, Oakmont wasn't happy-they were really sore, And they started saying they would beat us on their floor. lt was the other way around for Oakmont, I guess, Because on February 6th we made Oakmont look like a mess. March was a busy month with class parties and plays, And the seniors were starting to count the remaining days. The month of May was the finest of all, With the distribution of year books and the Junior Ball, The seniors were busy with their graduation programs, The teachers were busy with the 'final exams. The '48 seniors in their hearts will hold A little soft spot for the Purple and Gold. June fourth was the closing day, And everyone went home looking bright and gay. --Malamo 55 t a few Tsudis M M FIRST STREET U3 l 1 5 " AA"' ' 4 ---. L Wgifn miss:- 'T-..-..:: E--"'....
