The 1929 Reflector
13th Annual Commencement Edition
A Tribute to the Class of 1929

We praise you, Class of “Farrell High”
For courage that will never die;
For sportsmanship you've shown each day;
For trials met without dismay.

And as you leave these sacred halls
For broader ones, where duty calls,
May wisdom guide you all along
And make you noble, brave, and strong.

May your great Class of “Twenty-nine”
Upon the page of history shine;
And may your record through the years
Be one that “Farrell High” reveres!

The Dedication of Our New Athletic Field

[Athletic Field ]

September 22, 1928 will live long in the memories of all residents of Farrell, the Alumni, and the students of Farrell High School. On that memorable day the people of Farrell presented a modern athletic field to Farrell High School, in proud recognition of the high ideals of clean living and fine sportsmanship which have always characterized the students of their high school, whether in the class room, on the basketball court, or upon the gridiron.

The field was formally dedicated with all the ceremonies appropriate to such a gala occasion. However, the chief feature of the day was the parade sponsored by our Alumni. Favored with the setting of a resplendent, blazing Indian summer day, it was certainly equal, if not actually superior, in both glamour and size, to any parade previously staged in Farrell.

[1929 Cheerleaders] The procession was headed by an honorary escort of four stalwart motorcycle officers, with Parade Marshalls, McConnon, and Maxwell, efficiently directing its progress with the aid of two trimly decorated topless roadsters. They were closely followed by the Sharon Moose Band, blaring forth strains of martial melodies, the municipal fire trucks occasionally sounding their brazen bells, scores of automobiles gaily bedecked with blue and gold banners and streamers, several collegiate flivvers packed with cheering and yelling students — all contributing generously to the tremendous din. Next in order came the Sharon American Legion Bugle and Drum Corps, led by their inimitable drum major; all were clad in uniforms of such resplendency as to surpass anything before seen in Farrell. Marching closely behind came countless students carrying banners and an unlimited supply of unique noise-making devices. The route follwed by the parade was lined on both sides by practically the entire population of the town, hugely enthusiastic in their applause and encouragement.

Upon arriving at the field, the Bugle and Drum Corps gave a thrilling exhibition of military maneuvers, after which Burgess Scowden and President Bovard of the School Board gave brief, appropriate talks. Upon their conclusion, a volley of aerial bombs touched off burst into a blaze of blue and bold.

The closing feature of the afternoon's brilliant program was the dedication game with a team bearing the appropriate name of Memorial High, with the Blue and Gold of Farrell playing, for the first time, the part of host on its new home grounds. The game ended in a 12 to 0 victory in favor of the Ohio team. Thus, the final curtain was rung down. With the sun setting in a blaza of golden glory, it seemed to pesage a new era in athletics for Farrell High School.
