There have been times when we have not seen eye to eye, Miss Jones, but these have been more than offset by your personal efforts to make class proiects achieve goals. For your part in guiding our steps aright through three years of senior high we, the Class of 1956, express sincere thanks to you, Miss Anna Jones. OUR ADVISCRS MR. PAUL KRAYER By similar administrative action Mr. Paul Krayer shared the advisorship of our class with Miss Jones. Just as Miss Jones did not use her duties in Room ll and at "Rec" Center as excuses to neglect our class, so Mr. Krayer has found time, from a busy schedule of teaching in the grades and high school plus coaching varsity basketball and intramural sports, to cooperate with Miss Jones in all class affairs. For his share of counsel, guidance, and good will, we, the Class of 1956, use this space to say, "Thank you, Mr. Krayerf' I BOARD OF SCHOOL DIRECTORS, PLANNERS OF OUR STEPS William E. Griffith, President, Miller S. Frederick, Bruce G. Blackman, Noel Thom- as, Frank R. Wallace, Charles D. Lemmond. Absent when picture was taken, Sterling A. Wagner, Vice President, Herman E. Plieskatt, Secretary, l-l. Lane Glidden, Treasurer, .lames'P. Harris, Solicitor, Stanley K. Walborn, Architect. The steps ot all students in the Forty Fort School District are turned toward greater opportunities in education by these civic-minded men. For their efforts in obtaining the best in every phase of our school lives, the Class of 1956 wishes to thank the Board of School Directors. MR. FRANK W. WALP Elementary grades were characterized by ever-lengthening strides, from our short wee steps as first-graders to our elongated pace as sixth grade residents. This is to express our appreciation to Nlr. Frank W. Walp, who supervised our ever-changing gait. OUR ADMINISTRATION MR. L. C. BUBECK Junior-Senior high school saw ou beaver steps in seventh grade slow r eager- down to the stately shuffle of aging seniors. For his supervision of this contrast from measured steps, we shall be ever to Mr. L. C. Bubeck. fast to grateful as 'QW' is .iff W I PAUL KRAYER EDNA MAURER JOHN MORRIS HEI-EN NOACK Health, Physical Education AFT Supervisor Geography Librarian REESE PELTON DOROTHY PETTEBONE RUTH PETTEBONE I-ORRAINE RICE Music English, Spanish, French School Nurse English, Speech KATHLEEN STACK JEANNE STAPLETON GOMER WILLIAMS SALLY YATSKO Science Home Economics Latin, Social Studies Music Without the guidance of the faculty ot Forty Fort High School, our paths would not have been nearly so wide, so straight, or so clear. We have been led, not only in the vvays of learning, but along the roads of citizenship and practical experiencefall valuable parts of our education. We have received the help of faculty members for our class projects and our extracurricular interests. They have taken to heart our problems, both personal and academic. Perhaps our best way of expressing our sincere thanks is by staying on the paths along which we have been started. 'X 1 E W Y i? X new 1 l. A 1.4. iff. 2 , ,- X ' ' 61 ' X 1 1-,ff I W 1. .IQ 1 5? .

In football, in addition to serving as co-captain, he won the unique distinc- tion of being selected to the position of center on two West Side Conference All-Star Teams in both 1954 and 1955, by the players on the conference teams and by the Sunday Independent of Wilkes-Barre, respectively. ln wrestling he was undefeated during the regular season of 1954 and he emerged as runner-up in the 133 pound class of District 2, P.l.A.A. This year he has capably filled the exacting office of class presi- dent, guiding our steps in the rapid course of events which constitute the senior year and of which graduation is the mem- orable climax. Also, he has been very helpful in promoting the best interests of the school as an active member of the Student Council. The Class of 1956 takes this means of saluting Tom for his steady "drive" that made possible the progress of our steps in senior year in achievement of goals and in service to the school. OUR CLASS LEADERS ROBERT COLLINS MACK President of the Student Council Bob's long list of services to Forty Fort High School begins early in seventh grade and extends step by step through iunior and senior high. Aside from a perfectly normal human desire to achieve, Bob can be said to have genuinely wanted to help his school, his class, his homeroom, Versatility describes his school life as proved by such things as football managerships, class clance committeeman, American Legion Award, wrestling squad member, dramatics, tenth grade class president, Sports Editor of RED AND WHITE and THE FORT, soft- ball team member, representative to two P.A.S.C. conventions, and student-of-the-month. His greatest strides have been taken in the ascent to Student Council activity. At the close of his sophomore year, he was elected to the iunior year office of vice presidency. Senior year has seen him bring to the office of president the qualities of leadership, firmness, co-operation. His gavel has not sounded a harsh "Do this" but rather the inviting challenge "Let's do it together." No student council president has left worthier steps to be followed than Bob Mack.

Stamina and the will to win drove the Flyers to a second place tie in the West Side Confer- ence. Grueling summer practice sessions led by our able co-captains, Tom Craver and Bill Thomas, brought about many obstacles-iniuries. The Fly- ers went on to obtain a 5-5 record. The record was better than it sounds, for the teams victori- ous over the Flyers had to put down a deter- mined dynamo. How can any of the seniors leaving this year forget the high spirits at the Bloomsburg game, the closeness of the Shick- shinny game, and the heartbreak of the West Pittston game? As in the past, the Flyers were well represented in individual honors. The press and the coaches made a wise choice in placing Tom Craver as first team center, Dick Rimple, Harry Lewis, and Tom Lewis also gained honors and mention. Another step was made into the future by the creation of a iunior high team. We know this will lead to future commendable Forty Fort gridiron teams. 1 Q -M ig, . 34 QW' 1, ?fw gf X as , 5, sf ' 1' 'f Q Q , Sa 'S - 1. A .Q . A Y ,W iimw. A'i,,,,,'7f' 3 QW.

Co-Captained by Craig Beach, the distance runner, and 'Ed Margavage, the field general, the Flyers pulled many meets out of the fire in the last few events. The real speed of the team was distributed among Tom Lewis, Harry Lewis, Dick Rimple, and Jim Ford, not excluding the fast finishes by Bob King. The Followed by Ford, Rimple breaks tape. weight department was held down by Lee Davis and George Keiper, while Margavage, Andy Larko, and Joe Kren kept the Flyers in the run- ning in other field events. The Flyers took anoth- er big step by taking their share of titles at districts. Don't think the boys relaxed over the summer. No sir, some of them lent their talents in helping Wilkes-Barre to a victory in the Junior Olympics competition. King presses for 4:00 mile.

In the final bout of this meet, Bill Thomas dupli- cated Bill Pickering's effort of last year and ensured victory for the team. Three seniors carried the FIyer's banner into post-season tour- neys. In the Districts Bill Thomas and Tom Craver were vic- torious until the final bouts in their classes. Dick Rimple was the District Il champion in the I27-pound competition and placed second in the regionals.

On May 17, l955, the gaily decorated gym was crowded to capacity. Couples whirled and spun to the music of Al Anderson and his orchestra in a glittering tribute to the sooneto-be-leaving Seniors. The highlight ot the evening was the crowning ot lovely Mary Lou Newcomb as Queen ot the Prom. Richard Shemo, iunior class president was general chairman. MGVY LOU, Queen of the Deep STEPPING OUT CLASS HISTORY OUR STEPS With its premiere in 1953, Troupe 1956 es- tablished itself as a group with a brilliant future. Miss Anna Jones and Mr. Paul Krayer took on the task of directing our troupe. When tryouts were completed, Robert Mack emerged in the leading role, with Jane Wellhofer as his cosstar. Grace Corcoran handled the correspondence for the cast, and Richard Rimple managed the financial affairs. As the curtain opened, on stage appeared sev- eral members of the troupe in Five for Bac! Luck, our sophomore entry for the All-School Play Con- test. With Mary Frances Swigert in the featured role of a small town girl who "turned the tables" on Richard Cain, a sophisticated college sopho- more, our first production was a great success. During the second act the scene shifted from one athletic event to another. Many members of the cast were depicted as athletes, boosting the school's name in interscholastic sports. The third act showed the cast with shoes in hand, enioying a social "Sock Dance," which brought the curtain down on a most successful season. Before breaking up for the off-season vacation, the troupe enjoyed the annual outing, held this year at Hickory Run State Park. During the va- cation many members of the cast could be seen leisurely swimming at the pool or gathering at Martins' to discuss next season's production by Troupe 1956. After three months of delightful summer rec- reation, the troupe jumped eagerly into a year of performing. The maior role for this year's production was filled by Richard Shemo, with Joan Heydon as his leading lady. Grace Cor- coran and Richard Rimple retained their positions as secretary and financial director. The first act was resplendent with the colorful reds and yellows of autumn as the members of the cast took part in the "Mr. Touchdown Dance." Stepping into the spotlight was Ruth Ann Rundle, chairman of this traditional event. As the curtain closed, the evening was acclaimed a success. All eyes turned to view The Story of a Dead Woman, the cast's contribution to the 1955 All- School Play Contest. For her superb acting, Sally Riefenstahl received the award for the outstand- ing performer, and the cast received congratu- lations for a splendid production. -cr P '. ,Q I 7 . XA! Q .

H I ll. , 'ff ' s I Act two opened with a three-act drama entitled Old Doc, for his realistic portrayal of a country doctor, Richard Shemo won the plaudits of all. The final step in this year's production cen- tered around Neptune's Kingdom, theme of the Junior Prom. Soft blues and greens blended into the shimmering aquatic atmosphere. Romantic music by Al Anderson's Orchestra accompanied the dancing guests. The crowning of the queen, Mary Lou Newcomb, a senior, was the highlight of the evening. After completing their second season, the mem- bers of Troupe T956 adjourned to enioy their vacation. During the months that followed, they could be seen enioying themselves at the pool, tennis court, or park. ln September, l955, the members of the troupe stepped into position for their final engagement. The title role was held by Thomas Craver, with William Bonham as the supporting actor. Grace Corcoran continued to do an excellent iob of handling the correspondence for the troupe, and William Miller was named financial manager. As the curtain rose, the spotlight fell on the excitement of a pep meeting. Joan Wasserott and Darla DuRoss, assisted the students in a tribute to the Flyers. That evening at the football game, the snappy majorettesfRuth Ann Rundle, Jeanne and Jackelyn Senghaas, and Judith Wright-set the pace for the band as it marched briskly down the field. Joan Heydon, band president, was justly proud of the spirited-playing instrumen- talists. The curtain closed for a brief interlude, then opened on the successful performance of Time Out for Ginger, Darla DuRoss was the teen-age "dynamo" who finally succeeded in gaining a position on the varsity football squad. Robert Mack and Sally Riefenstahl added to the hilarity of the play as Ginger's distraught parents. Taking time out from busy rehearsals, the cast stepped into the wonderland of the Winter Fantasy presented by the Y-Teens, under the leadership of Jackelyn Senghaas. The dance was supported by various organizations including NNW Nu the Hi-Y under the direction of Edward Hutter The affair was given excellent coverage by the press agents of the troupe, Ellenita NSWCOINU and Elaine Grarnley, The feverish preparation for The Devil and Daniel Webster was the opening note of the second act. Members of the cast of wltont we were especially proud were Willrarwr Bonharn as Daniel Webster, David Thornas, the Devil, Ju' dith Wright, and Richard Sherno. The All-School Play Contest was under the direction of the Student Council, with Robert Mack as president, Practice continued srnoothly until the begin- ning of May, when seyeral rnernbers of the troupe put aside their playboolrs to participate in the Band Concert. A few weeks later the troupe, in a change of costurnes, stepped out for a night of dancing at the gaily decorated Junior Prorn. ln the final act the rnentbers of the cast as sentbled for Award Day. As several rnernbers of the troupe received their hard-earned letters, the others looked on proudly. The captains ol our successful teants were William Tltontas and Thomas Craver, football, and Richard Rrntple, wrestling. The scene rnoved rapidly to the solernn at' nrosphere of the Sermon to the Graduates. Class Day soon followed with rnernbers of the cast feverishly signing yearbooks, Darla DuRoss and Mary Frances Swrgert did a very cornrnendable job as editors of the rnenioirs of Troupe l95o. As the curtain rose for the final trrne on the members of the cast, they appeared in cap and gown to receive their diplontas. The ntentbers ol the troupe had reached the long-awaited goal. VVhen they walked proudly down the aisle, they knew that although each one would soon embark to play an individual role elsewhere, nothing could ever' replace the experiences they had shared together.

Through five entrances they have admitted us into the building. They have made it possible to reach second floor from first. When we have wanted to go to the shop, athletic equipment room, or the shower, steps have led us there. Likewise, steps have taken us from the auditorium level to the stage for chapel announcements, for plays and programs. Why all this fuss about steps? Just this. It enables us to say to you who have kept all steps of our school building in good repair and neat appearance, "Thanks, Doc, thanks, Miles, and you, too, Bill."
