"As a Community
Can We Afford To Do Less
Than Our Level Best For Our Children?"
On December 14, 1954, the voters of the Albion Central
School District answered this question when they
approved by an overwhelming majority a forward-looking
building program for the needs of their children. This
program was the result of months of careful study by the
Board of Education and the citizens committee. The
Chevron pays tribute to progress that builds a future of
freedom for all the children of all the people.
STANLEY T. WOODS
whose loyalty as an alumnus and devoted service of
twenty-five years as a member of the Board of Education
of the Albion Union School and as the first president
of the Albion Central School Board mark a lifetime of
devotion to the best in education for the youth of Albion.
Kindly, earnest, farseeing, always mindful of his
responsibility to the children, teachers, and citizens of
the community, he will long be remembered and esteemed
by this school and village.

Top of the building is here! 238 -- Seniors all together under one ceiling.
Our custodians, Mrs. Landfear, and Mr. I-lill.
We started off our last big year with the election of officers: Dan Cottovi,
president, Pat Fraser, vice-president, Nancy Bielinski, secretary, Marcia Gibbs,
treasurer. The honorable office of 'lpig keeper" went to Matteo Pecorella, who has
faithfully hounded the gum-chewers of the Senior Class.
Suits and ties - sweaters and pearls! The whole school knew that the Seniors
were having their pictures taken. Back came the proofs - it's awful - looks
just like me!
june came in December, with the Senior Play, "June Mad"! Tryouts, re-
hearsals, footlights! Up goes the curtain - we're on! Tommy in jeans - Sue in
chiffon - the audience in stitches!
"The Highwaymanu rode in A. C. S. on December 9th. Ciarico in braids,
the rest of us in our best. The Senior Tea had arrived. The program was fun, the
tea was punch, and we bowed our bow to society. Who will ever forget the moon
that showed Craddock the way? "Silver Bells" by the chorus set the theme for the
decorations by Carrie.
Came the Christmas party! One time when the girls had it easy. The spaghetti
dinner was cooked CPD and served by the boys Cdeep bows to Mrs. Arwell, Mrs.
Pecorella and Mrs. Petroniol. And such a charming Santa Claus to reward all
good little Seniors.
Slave Day - packed with laughs! The windows in Senior Homeroom shone -
thanks to two willing CPD slaves. Gridiron warriors turned dance-teachers - to
the eighth grade girls. And the slave-masters grinned! VVho can blame them?
March 8th, blizzard and all, saw us hop the bus for Rochester and "The Boy
Friend". What a show! What a welcome home - no lights, no heat, no school!
Now - cards and announcements are ordered - finals will soon be here -
and in only too short a time weill take our trip and trip across the stage in cap and
gown. Vale, Albion Central!

Order in the court! Case of junior class versus Albion Central School.
Plain. Att.: During the latter part of September, this group elected the fol-
lowing ring leaders: President, Ann Navarrag Vice President, Paul Canham, Secretary-
Treasurer, Sandra Waldo. The first crime committed was a campaign in which
they sold magazines. lt was very successful and they made a large amount of money
on this deal.
With some of this money, the entire junior class skipped town and hid out for
one evening in Rochester where they saw the Ice Follies of 1955. Many of them
lost their way and were almost picked up, but as the evening ended, all returned
safely to headquarters.
Future plans consist of a skating party and a radio broadcast, "The junior Town
Meeting of the Air." Speakers on this panel are Ann Navarra, Bob Skinner, john
Ellis and Beverly Brownell. The date of broadcast is March 15, 1956.
Members of the jury, I leave you to judge the damage done by these juniors.
The Plaintiff rests.
Def. Att.: Members of the jury, as you look at these fine juniors, how can
you find them guilty of such crimes? Many members of this class have contributed
a great deal to this school. Four girls, Eleanor Minckley, Dorothy Gregg, Dawn
Minier, and Bea Sedita cheered faithfully for the varsity football and basketball teams.
Cheering for the junior Varsity team were jane Bigger, Shirley Pecorella and Bev-
erly Brownell. Derwick, Pilon, Brackenbury, and Craddock did a fine job playing
on the Varsity football team. VVe had these junior boys, Derwick, Pilon, Ellis,
Hannon, and Batt who played Varsity basketball.
A large number of students represented the junior class in the Christmas Choir.
john Ellis sang the solo, "The Holy City."
Four members of this class, john Ellis, Sharon Hubbell, Charlie Derwick, and
Priscilla Standish were chosen as exchange students to Canada.
Does the jury find the junior class guilty or not guilty?
Cuilty, Your Honor.
The jury finds you guilty of irreparable damage to parents, teachers and the
school. You are therefore sentenced to one year of hard toil in Homeroom 238 -
sentence to begin in September, 1956.

Upper lower classmen, you say? Thats right! We've reached the second
rung of the ladder!
To help keep us balanced, Fred Daniels was elected president, Adrienne Daniels,
vice-president, lean Lent, secretary, Carolyn Miller, treasurer. Standing by to lend
a helping hand was our advisory trio, Mrs. Mahoney, Mrs. Holt, and Mr. Schroeder.
Looking back over the past year, the Sophomore Class is justly proud of its
contribution to Albion Central.
"Cive the ball to 'Unis'!'l, was a familiar cry at the football games. Fred Daniels
and "Beater" DeCarlo helped raise the Varsity basketball scores. And where would
the V.s have been without the Sophomores?
As for our girls - who could miss lean Lent, our V. Cheerleader - the two
Claudias CBritt and McColloughD, Bonnie Grimm, Karen Horton -- and lean
again f those talented Twirlersl
Many of our girls Cand boys, tool sang in the Glee Club, 'itootedn in the Band,
and slavcd OD on the Clarion-Echo and Chevron Staffs. ln fact, there was scarcely
a phase of school life in which the Sophomores were ll0t represented.
Along with the new year came the traditional skating party at Medina -
thrills, spills - an event long to be remembered.
And now we're reaching for the third rung of the ladder - and looking forward
expectantly to magazine sales, Signor Prize - and all that goes with being a junior.

We're Freshmen - a part of Albion High School at last! Until now, we've
been in the building, but not of it. Now we are!
We started this momentous year by electing the following class officers: jimmy
Graham, presidentg John Denniston, vice-president, Kay Bell, secretary, and Clark
The Freshman year brings new opportunities! And we made our presence felt
in a number of different fields. Our boys played on the V. basketball and football
teams. Donna Minckley and Kay Hubbell made the V. Cheerleading Squad -
Iudy Rice was our contribution to the Twirlers.
Now for the first time, our girls could join the Glee Club. We're justly proud
of our representative, Lenore Marth, who sang solos in both the Christmas Choir
and the Spring Concert.
Last, but not least, many thanks to our advisors, Mrs. D'Amico, Miss Klotz-
back, Miss Beeman and Mr. Salchak, for all the time and effort they have given to
our class. We hope they feel it has been well spent.
And now its time to climb higher into high school! We've made plans for the
future - plans to work hard and yet have fun too. We know weire going to love
every minute of it! But our Freshman year is one we won't forget!
SIXTH, SEVENTH and EIC-HTH GRADES
Special projects have added zest to the daily routine of the Sixth Grades. lVlrs.
Severns' class made a mural of the Solar System. Mrs. Scharett's class has done
committee work on foreign countries. Each class held a most successful Christmas
Life in the three Seventh Grades has been filled with activities - Christmas
parties, basketball teams, knitting lessons, a field trip, mural making - to mention
only a few.
Opportunity knocked at the door of the Eighth Grade this year. For the boys
- a new junior Bod and Gun Club, for the girls - a dancing class. The high-
light of the year - a skating party at Medina.

CHEVRON EDITORIAL STAFF
ist Rowt P. Standish, Mrs. Londfeor, S. Leste
September, '55! Again the door to 310 is open! Inside a veritable beehive of
activity as Co-Editors Sue Lester and Cordon Wells and their staff begin to make
plans for the 1956 Chevron. And where is Mrs. Landfear? Right in the middle,
of course - a never-failing source of inspiration and advice!
Ideas? Ideas? To track them down, off to the Empire State Scholastic Press
Association conference in Syracuse go Mrs. Landfear, Sue Lester, Senior Editor
Richard McMurray, and Assistant Editors Priscilla Standish and john Ellis. Cordon
Wells was a block behind us all the way!
"Cotta have money!" So the enterprising Promotion Staff under Ronnie Kettle
and Marcia Cibbs wrack their collective brains for new and novel means of pro-
curing the "green stulff' The result - that riot of fun, Slave Day! A Sadie
Hawkins Chase Cleap year, you knowD, Christmas Capers, after-game dances, and
Friday noon movies help swell the Treasury and keep Business Manager Nancy
Bielinski out of the "red."
Circulation Manager Pat Fraser's dog race proves a "doggone" good way to
stimulate competition in the homerooms and "up" the Chevron circulation. Now
all Pat has to do is pass out the finished product.
"Deadline Eridayv, warns Literary Editor Sue Beach, but it doesn't mean a
thing. "Better late than never", she sighs, checking off incoming write-ups on her
little chart. And then the fun begins, as Karen Rush and her corps of typists
attempt to decipher the hieroglyphics. "What's this word?" "Can't anybody write?"
Fingers fly over the keyboards - and at long last - Eddy's, here we come!
One picture's worth a thousand words Cso they sayl and Staff Photographer
Dick Brownell sets out to prove it - with gratifying results. Art Editor Carrie Wahl
bends over her drawing board and comes up with - just turn the pages and see
And now our task is over! lt's been a lot of work - and a lot of fun! Here's
the 1956 Chevron! Hope you like it!

STUDENT COUNCIL EXECUTIVES
"There will be a meeting of the Student Council in the cafeteria at 8:35 todayfi
That announcement has boomed out many times over the P. A. system, proving the
Student Council works hard for the students all the time.
Ably heading our student government is Sue Lester. Hand in hand with Sue
are John Craddock, vice presidentg Daisy Baker, recording secretaryg Eleanor Frank,
corresponding secretaryg Ann Burgis, treasurerg William Narburgh, head of the
Traffic and Safety Councilg and Rosemary Sadler, head of the Awards Council.
The first thing accomplished by the Student Council was the setting up of the
various committees and their heads. Susan Beach was placed in charge of the
Orientation Committee. lt was Susan who found each new student a big sister
or brother to acquaint him with the ways of A. C. S. Patricia Fraser, named head
of the Assembly Committee, was given the job of planning all the assemblies for
next year. Patricia Leigh was head of the Publicity Committee. lt was her job
to see that all Student Council activities were fully advertised. Charles Derwick
was given the task of managing the Spring election.
The Traffic and Safety Council fell under the supervision of the Student
Council this year. Bill Narburgh and his committee granted permits to the student
drivers. They also patrolled the drivers to make sure that their laws were followed
to the letter T Cas for ticketlD
The Awards Council with Rosemary Sadler and her members, had charge of the
awards. They could be found delving into the files, compiling each individual's
P The Finance Committee handled the money. All the money earned in the
school store passed through the hands of Ann Burgis, our treasurer. This com-
mittee also handled the Athletic Association money this year.
The meetings were run in true governmental fashion. At each meeting all the
committee heads gave reports along with at least five homeroom presidents.
Two new clubs were chartered for the eighth graders: the Junior Rod and Cun
Club and the Cirls' Dancing Club. Another club chartered was the Service Club.
Two free assemblies we all enjoyed must be credited to the Student Council.
We made money, too! We sold candy at the basketball games and held two
successful bake sales.
We worked with others. ln October, we co-operated with the Rotary Club to
help put on the annual Halloweien Party. At present we are trying to help the
P. T. A. pick an exchange student for next year.

The baton signaled "Cheer for Old Albionnl Out marched the Senior Band to
spur our team to Victory.
The band, Linder the direction of lVlr. Sherman, got off to a bang-up start this
year by -electing Tom Craddoclc as president, jimmy Graham as vice-president,
Sharon Hubbell as secretary, Daisy Baker as treasurer, and joan Cavenda, Pat Kelly,
and Marjorie Bates, as librarians.
The quick stepping of the marching band, and the high strutting of the
majorettes made a colorful formation for our football victories. In November, two of
our members, Faye liatch and Xfvlllikllll Allen, took part in the All-State Band in
Brighton. The next thing on the repertoire was the annual Pops Concert which
featured a trumpet trio.
ln May we went to the Spring Festival. As the finale of our year, we presented
our Spring Concert.
The junior Band, composed of approximately forty members, practiced regu-
larly during the school year. Their chief objective is to fill the chairs of the graduates
in the Senior Band. This band may be junior in age, but not in spirit and ability,
as they will have an opportunity to show in the Spring Concert.
If you should pass the music room door on Monday night, you would hear the
slow ballads and the smooth jazz of the Dance Band. The band, headed by Mr.
Sherman, played for the dance at the Band Fun Night, and other activities.

THE C-LEE CLUB
Spring came late for the Clee Club! lnstead of the concert, a blizzard and yet
another! We finally heard a wonderful program ranging from "l Wish I Wuz" to
"The Battle Hymn of the Republic".
The one hundred and twenty members had worked hard and the results
To begin the year four members were chosen to attend All State at Brighton.
They were llah Long, Susan Beach, Race Bergman, and Thomas Craddock.
During latter October, the Christmas Choir, with 41 voices, was organized. They
practiced long and faithfully and presented their program for the PTA and the
student body. The choir sang "Break Forth O Beauteous Heavenly Lightf "Holy,
Holy", "Sing O Heavens" and "There's a Song ln the Air". The girls sang "Bing
Out Ye Bells". Three boy Sopranos, Dennis Slizewski, David Ellis, and David
Greenlee, sang "Cantique de Noel". The soloists were John Ellis, singing "The
Holy City", and Leonore Marth singing "Under the Stars." The choir's songs were
an inspiration to all as the Christmas season approached.

Smiling Service! lVlerry lXlonitoringl Carl Petronio, with Mr. Anderson, heads
this year's newly formed organization, the Alpha Service Club. The function of
this club is to serve our school in manv wavs.
lt's greatest accomplishment was the setting up of a good monitor system. Our
members tlitl such a fine job of 'iinonitoringn that the school bought them jackets
to xvear while on dutv.
Our first social event was the i'Darlttown Strutters' Ball". Good turnoutl Good
tiniel Wie hope that the students will support all our activities, so that in future years
our members xvill be able to provide more entertziininent for the student body. At
present, we are planning a tureen supper and another dance. The profits of these
projects are to be put in the Student Council fund toward the purchase of a hiefi
for the school.
.Ns projects to raise money, we sold programs at the football games and, later,
pencils which had the basketball schedule on them.

FUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA
Farmers produce and howl The surplus of the Future Farmers of America
this year was one of ability. VVe had a bumper crop of thirty-two active members
in our local chapter.
Our officers this year include President, Gordon Wells, Vice President, Ronald
Kettle, Secretary, Neal Newton, Treasurer, Dan Snellg Reporter, Robert Brooksg and
Wzitch Dog, Mark Turner.
The first activity in our program for the year was initiation. The Senior boys
passed the judgment on the incoming greenhands.
Our money raising activities this year included our calendar advertising and
The Horticultural Show in Rochester brought many honors to the boys. Gordon
Wells won first prize in the speaking contest and also the County and Regional
contests which followed later. VVC also won four places in the fruit exhibit and
Ronald Kettle placed seventh in the fruit judging contest.
Gur next event was the annual banquet which was a howling success. At the
same time, we sponsored a pageant, which was appreciated by everyone of all ages.
The present Future Farmers of America Chapter has been an outstanding one.
not only for its ability to produce, but also for its talents along agricultural lines.

Broadway, here we come! From Rosemary's banged-up knee to Danny's glider
accident, the whole play was a crashing hit! Even Elaine hit a pretty good one
when she slapped Dan.
And the sequins and the tulle - the dinner guests were "elegant" - but no
one outshone Elaine in her "creation". The matronly Mrs. Wood, gray hair and
all - kept everything under control except Sheila's petticoat.
Hours of hard work - moments of fearful anticipation - than it was all over
- a side-splitting success!
And to Mr. Lynch, the distracted director of this talented troupe - our heart-
felt thanks for his patient perseverance.

junior or senior class.
Cavel wielder at meetings this year was
Richard lVlclVlurray, assisted by Secretary
Charles Derwick and Treasurer Robert Skinner.
Mr. Anderson, Mr. Hopkins and Mr. Host
acted as faculty advisors.
Most important project of the year was the
suggestion that an indoor rifle range be built
in the school. So far no action has been taken
on this suggestion. The club has also considered
joining the National Riflemenis Association, and
will make a definite decision at a future meeting.

The purpose of the Hi-Y Club is "to create,
maintain, and extend throughout the school and
community high standards of character". Its
specific objects are: 1. Clean speech, 2. Clean
athleticsg 3. Clean scholarship, 4. Clean sports-
manship. That the boys of Albion Central ap-
prove these objectives is confirmed by the length
of its roster.
Club officers for the ,SS-'56 season are: john
Burroughs, president, Robert Skinner, Vice-
president, Fred Parker, secretary and treasurer,
Lee Brooks, Matteo Pecorella, Dan Cottovi and
Terry Neal, sergeants-at-arms. Mr. Schroeder
again acts as its genial advisor.
Plans for a trip to Rochester to see the
"Royals" in action, swimming tournaments, and
other sporting events have kept interest in the
club at a high level. Fun Night proved a great

lnjuries in early season to first string halfback, ,lohn Babcock and starting
quarterback. Lee Brooks did not stop Albion's rampaging attack.
Led by cofeaptains Phil Ciarico and Lawrence Atwell, the Albion Central
lootball team began the athletic season with a superb showing. The teamis record
ol live wins, two losses and one tie is an excellent one.
The thundering haekliield of Eugene Lllianelli, the leading point-getter, Dave
Saeva's, Charlie Derwiek's and Dick Pilon's running behind the hard hitting line of
Bill Narhurgh, David Spierdowis, Matt Peeorella, VVally Dale, Lawrence Atwell, Phil
Ciarico and .Iohn Burroughs was a lormidable combination to stop.
Coach Spierdowis handled his bench expertly as he easily could with such able
substitutes as Arnold DeCarlo, Dan Gottovi, l'red Daniels, Carl Petronio and many
other outstanding players.
To climax a great season the Albion squad scored a tremendous victory over
our archlrival, Medina. 1 his was the liitli consecutive year that Albion has beaten
With the help of new coaches, hlangefrida and Salchak, the team of '55 had
a highly successtul season and everyone hopes that the team of '56, which will be led
by coecaptains Dick Pilon and Charlie Derwick, will have a season equally as good.

The Varsity Basketball Team, in spite of a poor season's record, rapidly ima
proved over the last half of the season. After eight losses, including three league
games, Albion finally won two games from Notre Dame, of Batavia. Then after
two close defeats, Albion broke loose against Medina, scoring 82 points and beating
them, thereby making the season a success.
High points of the season have been Chuck Derwiek's 30fpoint output against
LeBoy, and the rapid improvement of Arnold DeCarlo after being brought up to
the Varsity from the V. squad. Other members of the team are Lee Brooks,
john Burroughs, Dick Pilon, Fred Daniels, john Ellis, Race Bergman, Donald
Hannon and George Batt.
Prospects for next year look very good as Coach Biordi will have seven
years team back plus several members of the V.s who will be juniors.

When the leaves come out, so will Coach Hopkins and his diamond demons,
who will be trying for their third consecutive league championship.
Last year, Coach Hopkins led his smooth functioning team to the sectionals
where they were defeated by Painted Post in a hard fought game.
Familiar names like Griffin, Plummer, Brackenbury, Steele, Hobbs, and Pahura,
will be missing from the team's roster this year. Their positions will be hard to fill
but Coach Hopkins isn't worrying, because he has a fine crop of rookies. Also a few
old veterans will be returning to bolster the squad.
Coach has several choices for the catching position which he won't disclose
until practice sessions start. His finger will probably point to either Lee Brooks,
Dick Pilon or Eugene Ulianelli to fill this gap. The mound duties will be carried
mostly by John Burroughs with help from Charlie Derwick and Bob Skinner. Gordon
Wells, Phil Ciarico and Arnold D'Amico are lettcrmen who will hold down infield
and outfield posts.
The forecast is an encouraging one and here's hoping the team of '56 will have
a great season.

The track team of '56 has a tough schedule with which they will undoubtedly
do well. Although many seniors of last year won't be around this year, prospects are
still looking good.
Returning lettermen and their respective fields are as follows: Bill Narburgh,
who will be a big man for the team this year, relays, dashes, and broad jump, Atwell
and Spierdowis, shot put, Erway, Brayley and Fisher, dashes and relays, Wells and
Canale, mile, Craddock, hurdles, Parker, high jump and 880, Ciarico and Dale,
Cliscussg and Batt, 440. Coach Spierdowis expects to see many first year men out this
year, who will give the squad its needed strength.
He is still hunting For a good pole-vaulter to take Dick Griffins place.
Good luck, boysll

Right down the alley went the bowling team of twenty-eight boys. They
bowled every Thursday afternoon for ten weeks after school. The following six boys
with the highest averages were chosen to represent the school at the county bowling
tournament in Batavia: Dan Radzinski, Eugene Banas, Gordon Wells, Alfred
Proctor, jerry Earnst, and Dan Snell.
Our farmers are short this year but they had a surplus of ambition and kept on.
They lost their games but fought hard. The F. F. A. basketball team, captained by
Gordon Wells, played a total of six games this year with area schools, losing all six.
The lack of height against the taller and more experienced players of the other
schools is probably the main reason for an unsuccessful season.
Hard luck accompanied the junior Varsity basketball team this year. The
squad had 2 wins and 14 losses. One highlight of this year's season was the breaking
of the school V. scoring record by Iohn Leigh, who scored 31 points against
Kendall. Good luck next ycarl
This yearis wrestling squad, captained by G. Sullivan and G. Erway, has
clone well in competition with area schools and in the sectional matches. The
nucleus of the squad has been made up of last year's returning lettermen: George
Sullivan, Phil jones, Allan Cote, Gerald Erway, Lawrence Atwell and David
The whistle blows for girls as well as boys in the gym. Under the direction
of a new gym instructor, Mrs. Laughlin, this year was filled with many interesting
sports and activities.
The newly formed Girls' Athletic Association had for its officers, President, Susan
Monagang Vice President, Rosemary Sadler, Secretary, Kay Bell, Treasurer, Donna
Derwick. Representatives were, seniors, Nancy Bielinski and Patricia Fraser, juniors,
Gerry Pilato and Eleanor Minckleyg Sophomores, Mary ,lane Davis and Ann Stockton,
Freshmen, Donna Minckley and -loan Gavenda. This organization is doing its best
to introduce new sports to the school, bring about a closer relationship between our
school and others, and make the girls' athletic life more enjoyable during the year.
The year started out with the sport of field hockey. Teams were organized
but it did not interest as many as later sports.
It was a different story with volleyball, however. We played on Tuesdays and
Thursdays during the noon hour. A volleyball playday was held in Holley with
other schools. We won 2 out of the 3 games played.
Along with volleyball, a new sport, deck tennis, was introduced to the school.
The girls all agreed that it was a lot of fun!
Next followed basketball, a sport which is enjoyed by almost every girl. A
basketball playday was planned to be held in Brockport.
Bowling is our after school sport. lt was a great success this year for a large
number of girls participated. Eva Shawver and Dawn Minier did excellent jobs as
managers. A bowling sportsday was scheduled to be held here with six other schools
Badminton, shuffleboard, and pingpong were open to any girls interested.
This year a new period of time was devoted to a new idea called the Pep Club.
It is an organization for the benefit of girls interested in cheerleading. It gives the
girls in grades seven through eleven pointers on cheerleading and all that goes into
the making of better cheerleaders for the school.
Springtime brings with it softball, tennis, and archery, outdoor sports that are
welcomed each year. Sportsdays are scheduled for softball and tennis.
As the close of the year comes, we all realize what athletics mean to us. They
add a lot of fun and excitement to the school year.
