In an attempt to render the 1947 Edacra interesting to the alumni,
supporters patrons, and friends of Arcade Central School -- and not
merely to the students thereof the staif has in keepmg wrth the
Dedlcation on page 3 carrxed through the book an account of the his

THE CLASS OF 1887
Left to nght Dr Elmer Grant Horton, Nel11e Clough Homer W Clough
1th a humble realization of the inadequacy of the recogmtlon afforded th1s lssue of Edacra
is sincerely dedicated to the class of 1887, Arcade Hlgh School In the snxty years smce thenr
greater age and wxsdom has come a greater claim we realxze, to our school s academlc honors
Therefore, ln accepting such honors, as may come our way on our graduatlon, we do so wlth the
knowledge that our prominence is as a brief flxcker while the1rs IS of a lasting brxlhance We
hope that the Class of 1887, 1ntact as it IS now, can be w1th us many years to come as alumm of
the alma mater we share with them

The following historical notes on Arcade s Schools, gleaned largely from the
t b k f
no e oo o Mr Harry Douglass, tell the story of the growth of Arcade s educa
tional facilities They tell this story, we must admit, in a rather sketchy mann
er, but brevity ls necessary to cover the span of years treated Sallent events
have been noted together with, here and there a dlgression to cust d
oms an char
acterlstics of a period These facts could be woven into a smoother narrative
hat could be accomplished only be a story of much greater length The pages
given to these glimpses into the past are connected by a note at the bottom of
each page indicating the next page on which the notes are continued
1811 Rebecca Parker was teaching in the first school of the Town of China
fthere is no record of the location of the building, but it was somewhere
ln the vicinity of what is now Arcade Centerj
1813 Joel Dutton was teaching ln Chlna's first village school - a log hut At
this time, a Deacon Walter Hunckley had his "Temperance Tavern"
in about the location of the present Post Office. The village fArcadeJ
at that time had no name, it was sometimes known as "The Settle-
ment" or "Hlnckley's Station," having been a stop on the stage lines.
There were scattered farm buildings and possibly a general store near
the site of what is now the corner of Liberty and Main. In this same
school building, the town's flrst Sunday School and church services
1813 - Aprll - At a Town Meeting of the Town of Sheldon Qlncludlng at that time
the present townships of Arcade, lava, and Sheldonl, three inspectors
of common schools were appointed: Walter Hinckley, Israel Klbbe,
and Simeon Welles. This ls the earliest mention of any school officials
ln what are now the towns of Sheldon, lava, and Arcade.

April At the first Town Meeting of the Town of China, S75 was approprt
ated for the support of common schools At that date the town of China
newly separated from the town of Sheldon, included what is now the towns
of Arcade and Java This figure of S75 represents the entire cost of tree
public education for this large area The following year the sum was ln
creased to 3100, at which point it remained until 1827, when it was lncrea
sed to S 250
The report of the Commissioners of Common Schools showed 199 children
were taught during the past year, although only about S60 was distributed
to schools By 1832 the figures had risen to 753 puplls taught and S309
49 divided among 19 districts CAt this time a schoolhouse stood near
what, at the present time, is Hurdvllle, and lt is said to have been the on
ly frame building in the settlement at thi time
Ira Shedd taught school in a log hut that stood, as our town is now laid out
just west of the Arcade and Attica Railroad tracks on the south side
that Money there is now in the hands of the Overseers of the Poor will
go to the support of common schools
The records of the United States Post Office Department show that there
were four post offices ln the township China, East China fprobably on
the South Road! North China , Uava Lakej, and Centre China KCurr1ersJ
Town Meeting April l, "Voted to impose a fine of flve dollars on all per
sons who shall exhibit any puppet shows with animals or wire dancing
wax figures or shows of any kind the present year and the avails of such
fines to go for the support of common schools

NOTES FROM THE PAST lcont I
1844 The village opened a district free public elementary school of two rooms on
Pearl Street This building ls now part of the residence of Dr George
Davls Some of the original woodwork still remains This school was
used mmtll l870 Some of the customs prevalent in the school in this and
earlier periods were
Desks were slantlng shelves of slabs or boards usually arranged
around the outside walls
Ordlnarlly, girls and boys were seated on opposite sldes of the
A dunce stool or block was lnvarlably situated ln the front of the
The qulll pens were made and repaired by the teachers at the be
ginnlng of the morning sessions
It was customary to assess the fuel supply from parents accord
ing to the number of children sent to school In some cases, lt
was one third to one half of a cord of good maple wood per child
to be delivered before the first snowfall and usually was meas
ured by the trustees or teachers
Apparently the schools had health regulations, for there was a rule
which forbad sending children who had the itch to school
There were no formal grades pupils advancing from reader to
reader and from one arithmetic book to another
1863 Arcade Academy fa private elementary and secondary lnstitutlonj was o
pened on April 7 An advertisement printed ln THE ARCADE ENTERPRISE
PRISE on April 3, 1863 contained the following interesting notes
'The Arcade Academy is nearly ready for the opening term. The Trust
ees are busy putting things to rights, here and there, and will make lt com
ished this institution will equal any similar one in western New York
Prof Earle, the Principal, has arrived, and is also getting ready on his
part Underteachers and assistants are nearly all designated and will be
in full the week The desks and seats are today Q Thursday J going into the
schoolroom and the ladies Just like 'em, are carpeting the chapel ros
trum and have on hand for that room a fine chandelier' So, every day some
thing is done towards completion And now, boys and girls, blg and little,
here and elsewhere, let's see you on hand next Tuesday morn at the tap of
the bell ln your school rlg, and with smiling faces, of course, and so avail
yourselves of this new and lnvitlng opportunity for an education which is
better than houses or lands, gold or silver, or greenbacks either
1871 Miss Mary Wright became the only woman principal of Arcade Academy tonly
woman ever to be principal of Arcade School J She served three terms
1870 In April the Arcade Academy was sold to School District No 1, which was
made up of the Village of Arcade, and, with this transfer, the Arcade Aca
demy and Union School was established under the general law of the state
Tuition was stlll charged to non residents CThls date marks the end of the
Arcade Academy and the public elementary school on Pearl Street J
1871 The old district school house on Pearl Street was sold at public auction

NOTES FROM THE PAST continued on Page 47
1870 The Arcade Academy and Unlon,School boasted a faculty of two in the aca
demic department, about the same number ln the grades, and a part
time vocal and instrumental teacher Two terms of sixteen weeks made
up the school year In 1883 Mr Goldsmith, Principal was conducting
teachers classes Two of the best remembered teachers of the training
class during the subsequent years were Mrs Mary Fenner Knight and
Miss julia Young
Blackboards, in these days were painted boards, while erasers were
blocks of wood covered with sheep skin or rags It ls interesting to find
that ln 1880 the School Commissioner complained, in his state report that
many schools had no crayons or erasers, while blackboards were univer
sally poor To remedy the situation, the Commissioner carried a can of
blackboard slatlng under his wagon seat a brush ln a teapot with a hole
in the lid to allow the brush handle to pass through, a tea cup, a lot of
erasers he made himself, and a box of chalk He claimed to be able to
paint the blackboards in ten minutes and that twenty minutes later, the
boards would be ready to be used
The school had its own outside pump to which the older boys went with pails
Back in the school room it was a privilege to pass the water pail, while
each pupil filled and drank from a common dlpper
Each room was heated by a large stove which used three foot sticks of wood
brought in by the older boys Q A pile of such wood can be seen in the pic
ture of the building J
James H Gibson was principal of the Arcade Academy for seven terms in the
1860 s and 1870 s I-le is pictured above ln his home office It is interesting to note
that, before entering the field of education, Mr Gibson was, at different times a
drugglst and a printer The local paper, Arcade Enterprise, ln April, 1865, reported
that James H Gibson was making qulte a success of a hair restorer called Orn
aline which was supposed to eliminate gray hair In August, 1865, the Enterprise
carried this advertisement for Gibson s Restorative Dressing Cures baldness,
falling hair and promotes growth been ln use about a year There ls a class
of bald headed people upon whose heads the hair cannot be made to grow by any
remedy known The Restorative Dressing will not perform miracles Mr Gibson
was founder, editor, and publisher of the Arcade Enter rise established March 31
1859 This was Arcade s flrst regular newspaper In his st issue he offered to
take good maple sugar or wood on subscriptions

On our return trip from Washington, aboard the Paradise Llmlted, all the seniors snlckered as
they woke Mr Douglass out of a troubled sleep Everyone sat up and eagerly listened as he began to
tell Mlss Valone of the amazing dream he had, revealing the future of the drowzy faces he had seen
as he looked about the bus This ls what we heard
In my dream I saw a small, modernized commxmlty called Boomtown, with everyone as happy
and as busy as could be In the newly built Lmrn Less College Louis Domes had been appointed
chief assistant to Professor Murphy The promotion was due to his unexcelled knowledge ln the
field of grammar Notlclng a bill board, I saw that Marjorie Unger, with janet Randall as her cam
paign manager, had been elected Senatol' Ford Strong was conducting a course for the Light On
Your Feet method of dancing This method ls said to be useful to people with small feet like his own
As I entered the Hlgh School I observed a notice annonmclng that Ray Simmer had just received his
appointment as basketball coach in the Slng Sing Association He was said to be training them in the
method of fair play Walking along I heard the rumor that Bill Bates and his wife, the former Mar
tha Joslyn have opened a new theatre They called it the Wild West Hangout with Bing Crosby play
ing on Sundays
Buying a newspaper at the corner drugstore, I noticed thot the Backyard Ballyhoo edited by
Keith Edmunds, was supporting a bill to require younger teachers ln school The latest comic strip
which had been added to Ballyhoo was 'Daffy Damsels drawn by Nancy Almeter As I glanced
through the paper I saw that Mary Lou Metcalf, Ruth Ann Denison and Vlrglnla Dickey had become
vice presidents in Petrillo s unlon and were striking for higher wages A special headline ln the
paper announced james Morgan s new experiment He had succeeded ln crossing telephone poles
with Hybrid Company The result was a decrease in party lines Dlstracted from the newspaper
by the soxmd of music I saw that Mrs Donald Hughes, the former Sally Feraldl, was featured vo
calist with her husband s band Right next door to the music hall was a restaurant owned by Mabel
Smith and Margaret Turk They called it 'Cockroach Haven and the menu for the day was bug hash
with pickle juice for a drink
Overseelng the community hospital as head nurse appeared Rose Marie Conroy She, in her
white uniform went dashing down the hall to a patient I met jean Maracle in the hospital and she
was just arriving to do secretarial work for the good looking doctors It was rumored that if Lois
Fetzer and Arlene Domes soon didn t put through the blll in Congress to decrease high school sub
little boy ln the 'Hospital News He won first prize ln a local baby contest Rita Roche and Mil
dred Richardson had been compllmg a list of Available Men and chances of getting them Oh
what a problem
"As I left the hospital and again went on exploring the small community, I noticed an Admlra
of the Navy coming towards me As he came closer I saw that lt was Carlton Bennett He said he
had been given his commission after having the honor of swabblng the deck of every ship ln the
fleet Talking to Carlton for some time he informed me that Ellen Feraldl was teaching Shakes
peare at Cornell University and was one of the country's best authorities on Macbeth He also told
me that Neil Waldron was nnklng a fortnme as the thin man of radio fame Leavtng,Carlton, I
noticed a slgn which read 'Bumblebee Stamp After lnvestlgatlng I fommd out that Josephine Decker
was giving jltterbug lessons She told me that IacobGendzerskl was awaiting his promotion to man
ager of the Statler Hotel
'Ivy Wagner and Betty Brass were attending the new school for backseat drivers in the com
mnmlty They will graduate with honors this year Eddie Wllkey and Bob Humphrey have been
seen together quite a bit down at the corner ice cream bar Rumors say they are planning to go ln
to business together selling easy chairs and feather beds In another corner of the lce cream bar
were Karolyn Altmann and Gloria Newland busily working on their bills for the day s profits I
overheard a few people talking in the ice cream bar and they said that Ronald Wledemann was belng
featured ln the reproduction of the movie 'Gilda as well as ln 'The Trip to the Insane Asylum I
also heard that Bob Mason was assistant mamger to john Powers Hls department ls concerned
with types of blondes The newest appointment tothe jolm Robert Powers staff was Eddie Domes

Notlclng a hotel, I saw that lt was called the 'Broken Down Arms hotel with Eleanor Relsdorf
as proprietor Frank Griffin and Ralph Balrd were staying at the hotel, resting between glving
boxing lessons They have had success though, as was lndlcated by the fact that all of their clients
can box their shadows very well Adeline La Scala, a columnlst ln the New York Times, was spend
lng a few days at the hotel also Her department handles 'Advice To the Lovelorn etc Her newest
readers are Donald Kllllngbeck and Eddie Redden who have joined the Y W C A and have received
