One cold frosty morning in the year 1840, several boys waited furtively,
but gleefully, in a country store opposite the schoolhouse. They were waiting
for the bell to ring, but nine o'clock came, and no bellg nine-thirty and
then ten, - still no bell. These boys, the night before, had palntaklngly
climbed to the belfry, turned the bell over and filled it with water, knowing
that by morning it would be frozen and no bell could summon them to class.
Inside the schoolhouse was one large room with a long, low stove near the
center for heat and desks were built along the walls. The teacher.was en-
throned upon a platform where his all-seeing eye could detect the playful or the
loiterer, and with a birch ruler bring him back to the pursuit of knowledge.
Even with all that has been said and written about these early schools,
they were a definite step forward in free, public education. It was left for
America to provide universal education, Education was needed for everyone if
people were to understand the principles and problems of American Democracy.
Standards have been rapidly advanced for teacher tralningg men and women
are entering the profession today to pursue it as their life work. America
Marches On! - and with it, Education goes hand in hand.

United States of America I Peace hath our God given,
It means so much to me: America he has blestg
Now, my fellow-citizens,
We must do the
We, who are the youth,
Even seem to know
That our love for America
Will never cease to grow.
Can overcome the wrong
If daily we set out to bear
All our burdens with a song.
You are our life, America,
We'll love you till we dieg
And we'll always be filled with pride

Look again, Americans,
What have we to fear?
WHAT UNCLE SAM MEANS TO ME
A century and a half ago a new government was ordained in America founded on something almost new to
Europeans - Liberty. In the years that have followed, the United States of America has become a design for
equality and justice, leading nations-and peoples to liberalism all over the world. Today this takes on
new significance. With oppression and suffering being felt all about her, America becomes a sanctuary of
these principles, not only to others who, in peril and distress, look to her for aid and relief, but also to
Americans in whom are awakened a new devotion and greater zeal for making them secure.
Uncle Sam guarantees us Liberty with happiness and security and provides equal opportunities for all
his people. An American's life and possessions are his own, to be used for whatever he desires: he is called
upon for his services and contributions only when the safety and integrity of the country is at stake. Ours
is the right to worship God in the church of our choice, subject only to the dictates of our own conscience.
The decisions of life are left with us. We are free to frame and carry out our own ideas, to criticize the
government, and to suggest improvements. We are endowed with the right to express our views peacefully to
But, this is only the beginning of the kindness of Uncle Sam. These personal liberties and many more
are guaranteed to all citizens alike, to the merchant or the farmer, the minister or the office holder, the
industrial worker or the business magnate. The franchise is granted to all citizens who are capable and
deserving of a voice in governmental affairs. The great fortunes and opportunities of this vast land of
almost unlimited resources are free and open to all who will only invite opportunity to their doors. As a
student, I know the boundless possibilities offered in schools to every American boy or girl who is eager to
prepare his life for a useful future.
Probably the most precious endowment which Uncle Sam can offer is the felicity which we enjoy. In this
traditional land of peace and comparative security, we are fairly safe from repeated and disastrous hostility
and strife between nations which so often shatters the tranquility of human existence. In this country, states,
of a size to be considered nations elsewhere, are joined in mutual friendship and diffidence, all deriving
their authority from the central government. Here, peoples of scores of nationalities, religions, races and
creeds, are united with one ultimate goal - to form a perfect democracy. Here we can pass our lives in
happiness, comparative peace and reasonable abundance. Let us, as Americans, rally ardently to the defense
of our beloved WLand of the free and home of the brave,W for in the realm of Uncle Sam, Compassion and the
Golden Rule prevail rather than Oppression and Iron Rule.

In the fall of '29, fifteen frightened, yet happy students, found their way to
the first grade where Miss Baker greeted them. Here they learned the three nR'sn and had
their first glimpse of school life. Only three members of this graduating group were in
that first grade class: Stanley Fox, Betty Brown, and Floyd Crocker. Others joined
the ranks as the years passed by and our school life rapidly expanded. Exciting
and puzzling experiences awaited the students in grammar school. However, through
the patience and efforts of our teachers, this illustrious class passed from
the eighth grade into a high school full of new opportunities and achievements.
High school life has been both happy and exciting. In the junior
year, the class entered the new modern monument for the promotion of
knowledge, and a more proud or happier group of Juniors could not be
found The highlights of the year were a play, 'Aunt Susie Shoots the
Norks , and a very successful Junior Prom. At last the students
came to their last school year of secondary education.
The students of our class adopted their new title
of nSeniorsn with the greatest dignity and pride and
selected Stanley Fox as their leader. Through the ,ff
earnest endeavors and cooperation of the faculty
advisor, Miss Connor, and all the members of the W
class of '41 the goal was reached: a trip to
Washington, I3.C., and graduation ---the f C M,
result of perseverance, hard work and f" ,
many happy hours of student life. X if

The student Council met once a month to decide what measures should be taken
on questions concerning student and school activities.
The first meeting was held on October ll, 1940. It was decided to lend
Dana Wallace, School paper business manager, a sum up to ten dollars, to start
At the December meeting the president appointed a committee to work with
him, in consenting to parties connected with the school. They were: Virginia
Geer, John Goodrich, Merlyn Stowe, Dorothy Wright.
At this meeting the Seniors were granted permission to sell candy at basket-
ball games. It was decided that two votes must be cast against an Honor Club
applicant rather than one to eliminate favoritism and mistakes. The Council
decided to compel Freshman to learn the School 'Alma Matern, under penalty of
singing it alone in assembly. nThey learned it well.n
The Student Council decided to have a shake up in the method of choosing
Honor Club members. The new minimum requirements of the set up are: 801 monthly
average, good school spirit, praise-worthy conduct, at least one extra-curricular
activity for anyone taking less than five credits, and neatness to be decided
by regular locker inspection. The application sheets were reworded to eliminate ,
Yes, No, questions. ""

Last fall, the F. F. A. attended the State Fair at Syracuse and the Bath
Fair. The boys judged potatoes, horses, poultry and dairy cattle. Later in
the year, the club was host to the County F. F. A. Rally. Here the boys won
first place in shop skill and in judging livestock.
The Christmas decorations for A. C. S. were made by the Agriculture IV
Classy Don Weber was the artist. The entire design was made out of wallboard
and displayed on the roof of the school building. The class was awarded a
prize by the Avoca Service Club for having the best Christmas display in Avoca
Monthly meetings of the F. F. A. are held in the gymnasium. At these
meetings, the boys discuss farm life and the problems involved in farm work.
The Board of Education presented the club with a year's subscription to
the Farm Bureau paper. This gift has been appreciated and has become very
During the summer vacation, Mr. Bullett visits the farm of each one of the
F. F. A. boys and gives them helpful advice concerning their projects. Each
member of the F. F. A. keeps an accurate record of his farm produce and a
final report is made at the end of the year as to the time spent and profit
made. Two girls have taken the Agriculture course this year, and have shown
their superiority in this line of work.
The F. F. A. members review the year's activity with pride and consider it
most valuable and beneficial.

thoroughly convinced the students of A. C. S. that they are vitally interested
The objectives of the club are to foster a greater interest in the study
of science and to help the students plan for future activities in the realm
of science. The meetings of the club are well attended, and a spirit of
interest and cooperation is very obvious.
The science club has affiliated with The American Institute of Science
and Engineering Clubs.
The 'Bunsen Burners' are outstanding in their scientific advancement and
deserve commendation for their excellent cooperation.

Each morning during the school year, students are notified concerning ath-
letic contests, club meetings and other extra-curricular events. A special
news commentator Fred Sharp - sum arizes the latest national and international
newsg James Blake comments on school news. Every Wednesday morning selections
from the Bible are read.
The radio broadcast has greatly increased and arroused interest in school
life and all that it offers to students of A. C. S. This club, organized in
1938, has been of the greatest service to all the students and faculty members.
As special features, the Radio Club has produced short one act plays and
,has given educational comments on the various movies shown during the year.

Homemaking A includes home project work, cooking and serving meals, clothing
selection and sewing. During the past year, the girls have made dresses and
clothing for needy children. Every two weeks luncheons have been served for
the various teachers. In assembly a fashion show was featured at which time the
girls modeled articles of clothing they had made. At the Father and Son Banquet
the Homemaking A club served the meal and displaye their cooking art.
The Homemaking B course has been divided into four separate units: house
planning, house decoration, house furnishing and house care. The class has
planned and decorated model rooms, a slip cover for the studio couch, and a
scale drawing of the Homemaking house. At the regular monthly meetings, the
members of the club have learned how to knit, how to make various kinds of candy
and attractive gifts. Buffet suppers have been served and successful parties have
been planned. Recently the club visited Wayland Chair Factory and observed the
methods of constructing furniture.

During the past year, the' Junior Class has sponsored the school paper in
connection with their class work in English III. Four editions of the paper
have been published and, according to the comments of both students and facul-
ty, this has been a successful project.
The editor and members of the staff wish to take this opportunity to thank
the advisors for their excellent advice and helpfulness. Because of this, we,
the Junior Class, have published a school paper far superior to any of previous
years. This experience has taught us the fundamentals of journalism, coopera-
tion with our fellow classmates, and, last but not least, it has greatly aided
us in our study of English. Although the paper has required much hard work, it
has been one of the most enjoyable events of the year.

Athletics for the 1940-'41 season
at A.C.S. started off with softball.
As this sport had not been included
in interscholastic athletics until
this year, our team was not too suc-

school, however, by conquering an
all-star team made up of faculty

Basketball came next and there were
many candidates for both the varsity
and junior varsity teams. No league
games were won, but several heart-
breakers were lost to slightly
superior teams. The junior varsity
won about half of their games - and
adopted the name, "Mighty negate."
We are anticipating a championship
team when they become juniors and
