Like our school, our class has been built so that we stand ready to face the challenging years ahead. During construction, we have been aided and befriended by our Principal and Faculty, who have helped us over- come the obstacles of ignorance, super- stition, and prejudice. They have pre- pared us for the day when we shall as sincere citizens face the problems of every day life. The past has been built by our forerunners, the future is up to us. DEDICATICN We, the Class of 1953, proudly dedicate "The Album" to Mr. Foster and Mr. Sinclair, whose guidance and patience has sustained us through- out our four years at Alden Central School. As the school was built, so they have helped build our character. I v s I I , 1 . .-""Tlff at ,.'l 4' l .-ll It is with the greatest of pleasure and sincerest humility that I accept from you this dedication in your "Album" of high school memories. As teach- er, counselor, co-worker, and friend, no honor could please me' more than that of being chosen as the one to whom you are dedicating one of your last "group projects," your yearbook. In all sincerity, I can say that many years will pass before I will be privileged to work with a class which will demonstrate such leadership and cooperation. Throughout our few years together we have all been builders-builders of a future which shows great promise. All of your works, trials, and successes have done their part in building your class in a special, spiritual way as well as in your more tangible accomplishments. I extend to the Class of 1953 of Alden Central School my best wishes to continue building your- selves, your community, and your nation toward ever greater successes. l Mr. Fo ster Mr. Sinclair Experience is a wonderful teacher and it is a hard, and ruthless one but the rigors of advance- ment can be made less painful by heeding the sincere council of those who have gone before. There will be many times when you will look back on these few years and remember them as the happiest and most carefree time of your life. The associations you have made will undoubted- ly, one by one, lose their full meanings as new fields of endeavor are entered and conquered but still there remains the outstanding episodes of the part of life gone by, from which one can gleen as ever present encouragement for the unknown pitfalls of the future. The present and past considered, the Gradu- ating Class of 1953 is to be congratulated on its fine record of achievement in the past four years and it is my sincere wish that this he a success- ful reminder to each individual for the rugged years ahead. n nie nis Page Administration 7 Seniors 13 Classes 27 Activities 43 Athletics 53 .. 2 A. 5 ,..,. in Q. 5.

CLASS OFFICERS CLASS OF 1953 When the Class of '53 entered Alden four years ago, we were the first Freshman class in the centralized system. During the intervening years many changes have been made in our school as changes have been made in our class. In 1950, during our Sophomore year, money was appropri- ated for the building of a new addition which was started the next year. This year the school, like our class, has reached completion. During the past year our class has been aided and encouraged by our class advisors, Miss Carlson and Mr. Sinclair. Their cooperation and guidance has made our many class activities, during this time, a suc- cess. Through this cooperation and guidance, the rough road over which we had to travel to reach our graduation day was made much smoother. L. to R.: Miss Carlson and Mr. Sinclair.

It brought back many memories of my classmates, for I was attending Alden when the corner- stone was laid. Every one of my classmates has achieved success in his respective field. There was Don Streit. He always wanted to make dollars and that's exactly what he is doing. He's a printer in the U.S. mint. Rhea Donnelly and Mickey Fleming have spent most of their careers as lady wrestlers, wrestling each other for the title. Tommy Roll became a famous pitcher for the Red Soxs and is now in baseball's Hall of Fame. Then there's Arlene Hassenbobler, a famous lawyer and politician. Her cheerleading must have helped her become so long winded. Helen Oestreich and Sharon Schmitke are spending much of their time flying around the world, often with Shirley Hicks as pilot, seeing all the places they studied in social studies. They have made several trips to Hawaii to see Peggy Lynch, who is living there. Sally Weber has become the head of Saks' Fifth Avenue surrounded by her first love . . . . . clothes. Beverly Gerhardt is employed by Nora Baltz, a famous beautician, to model all her newest bairdos. I Jim Sievenpiper has built a super hot rod in which Evelyn Nuwer and Frank Binder have broken all previous speed records. For the test they used the super highway to the moon, which was engineered by Charlie Chauncey. After witnessing the test, Willard 1Stocks and Bonds, Preis- chel bought the car. Then there's Carol Mellon, who married a stock driver, and Nancy Zamiara, who surprised everyone by being the only one in the driving class to obtain a driver's license. Wesley Weil, Eugene Kelchlin, and Bob Daniels have joined the Navy to see the world. 1 don't know how much of the world they have seen, but they certainly have seen miles of water. If you have admired any of the illustrations in the top magazines, they may have been drawn by Joanne Wimmer, who is now a famous illustrator. Bessie Toulmin and Frances Abramski keep her files, records and so forth in excellent shape. Joan Austin has written nnny wonderful poems which she dictated to her private secretary, Genevieve Wisniewski. She employs Carol Lock as a comptometer operator to keep count of all the money she makes. jimmy Wilson became Mr. Conrad's desk boy and he has also worked for Ronnie Horst, who succeeded Mr. Conrad as principal. One of his most efficient teachers is Joann Woodard, who teaches music. Ednamae Reuter, Claudia Smith, Virginia Khun, Mary Foss, joan Terre- berry, and Pat Wlodarczyk all married soon after graduation and now have large families. Rosie Kelley became secretary to a successful business man and eventually married him. Myrlene Thompson is a chorus girl in the top musical comedy on 24 , -My Pan CWM Broadway, and right next door Gail Fischer has the lead in the hit play. Francis Nuwer has put his talents as class clown to work and is now known as the second Milton Berle. Gloria Ramos went to college and enjoyed it so much that she returned after graduation as a teacher. Then there's jimmy Roberts, who operates a diesel train that travels from coast to coast daily. Charlie Lynch has his own jazz band and has many fans because of his fine trumpet playing. Paul Henry joined the foreign legion and has risen rapidly to his present position as a general. joan Wilson is a food sampler for one of the big restaurants and does she enjoy it! The bricks of the school from which they graduated reflect the success of each individual. Let us hope that this reflection may never dim. Pulling switches in the mint. -rr--f We, the Class of '53, being of sound mind, fremember, don't believe everything you readll, do hereby draw up this, our last will and testament: ' Genevieve Wisniewski and Frances Ahramski leave their printing ability to all those who wish to make money. ' Francis Nuwer, class clown, bequests his title to Bill Irish. Don't do all your practicing in Mr. Hanlon's room, please. Tommy Roll and jimmy Sievenpiper leave their ability to play football to Gary Garrison. Make sure it helps our team to win! I Airlene Hassenbobler leaves her cheerleading ability to Nancy Garber, our Freshman cheer' ea er. joan Austin leaves her art ability to next year's Art Department of the yearbook.

We first met in 1951, when both of us were freshmen. The school was just beginning to rise, and we were just beginning to be a class. By the end of our sophomore year, however, we are both thriving. The school is fully constructed and we are welded into a busy class, successful both in studies and activi- tres. We would like to say that both we and the school are looking forward to fine careers here. Our only regret is that ours cannot be as long and worthwhile as the school's.

As the Class of 1953 departs from the new building, we, the Class of '56, enter it. No longer do we find ourselves in over- crowded classrooms, a small cafeteria and an inadequate gymnasium. Instead we look forward to spacious classrooms, a modern cafeteria, and a huge new gymnasium. In addition we have a beautiful new auditorium. Therefore, we enter our high school careers with all the material qualifications for suc- cess. We have used these facilities to sponsor two successful movies and a very profitable candy sale. We are looking forward to three more very pleasant and successful years. L. to R.: Margaret Oestreich, Presidentg Thomas Pope, Vice-President, joan Swyers, Secretary, Jacqueline Kumpf, Treasurer.

From all indications the change has been favorable both from the student and community standpoint. Mr. Melvin Schaefer, the new High School Mathe- matics teacher was Varsity coach, and Mr. Richardson was Junior Varsity coach. In this its first year of eleven-man football, the Bulldogs did exceptionally well. Alrron won the Con- ference and Alden and Warsaw tied fomsecond. The highlight of the season was the last game against Attica. Having lost to them previously, the Alden team turned around and defeated Attica 32-0. Four Seniors who will be suely missed for next year's team are Charles Chauncey, Tom Roll, Charles Lynch and jim Sievenpiper. Their spirit and teamwork was beyond reproach.
