"Clean living, clean speech, clean athletics, clean scholarship, and contagious Christian character”
During the early part of the school year, through the efforts of Mr. Raymond Saxon, adviser of the affiliated Hi-Y Clubs of Allegany County, the Penn Hi-Y Club was organized. Its purpose is to create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character.
Limited to a select few, who must meet the necessary requirements as to scholarship, citizenship and character, this club has become an active organization.
Meetings are held each Tuesday evening in the club rooms at the Y. M. C. A. Every program given at these meetings is both educational and entertaining and has done much to build up the morale among the boys of the school.
The club took an active part in the joint meeting of all Allegany County clubs held at the "Y" the first week in March. In the athletic tournament, the Penn Hi-Y Club captured the basket-ball championship. This tournament was limited to only those who were not varsity men. The winning team was: Cage, Thomas, Proudfoot, Malone, Yates, and Gerard.
The club also held a dance in the auditorium on Friday, April 20th. Members of the faculty and guests of the boys enjoyed the dancing. "Maggie's Melody Boys" furnished the music.
At an assembly in January, the club presented the school with a large Hi-Y banner. This banner, in the school colors, maroon and white, bears the Hi-Y seal and the words "Penn Hi-Y, Cumberland." A charter, granted by the State Board has been framed and given an appropriate place in the school.
