EDITORIAL One of the most important goals which the world seeks today is peace. The world hopes for a peace that will end wars and bring all nations together in coopera- tive work for the benefit of all people. It is known that if we are to accomplish this goal of peace among nations, we must conquer the obstacles that stand in its way. Lasting peace cannot be reached suddenly. It may take years and even centuries to obtain lasting peace for all nations. Ever since the beginning of time, some have struggled to achieve itg today, many more are working and hoping. Over the centuries, many attempts for peace have been made. Within the past twenty years, the two greatest attempts in the world toward achieving peaceful rela- tions among peoples of the earth have been the defeating of the ruthless dictators of World War II and the setting up of the great United Nations organization in which nations of the world work to settle disputes arising from disagreements among nations. In World War II, the peace-loving countries of the world joined together and stopped Hitler, Mussolini, and Tojo from conquering the world and destroying all chances of our ever having peace. After much fighting and bloodshed, the war was finally over, but the ill feelings roused in the people of the warring nations continue today, and resentment over their defeat is in the hearts of many people in the de- feated nations. If there is to be peace, the peoples of the different countries must learn to understand each other, understanding among nations being a definite part of peaceful relations. The United Nations, the greatest union there has ever been for peace, was organ- ized so that the countries could discuss their problems intelligently without war. Many disputes have been settled, such as the Iranian oil problem and the Korean War conflict, but there will always be new problems which must be discussed and settled. The United Nations' greatest job is to settle these disputes without having the conflicting countries resort to armed methods. The United Nations' ability to bring countries together in the future will depend on the countries themselves. No one is able to foretell the countless accomplishments that the United Nations organ- ization will be able to make in the years to come. Though peace is sometimes defined as "freedom from war or strife," the peace of the world could mean much more than just freedom from war. It could mean that all countries would get together and work to conquer devastating diseases, such as polio, cancer, and tuberculosis, diseases which are killing so many men, women, and children all over the world. It could mean that instead of using atomic power to make greater A-bombs and H-bombs to destroy lands and people, scientists would work together to put this great atomic force to work in benefiting the peoples of the earth. Total peace could also mean that the more fortunate countries would help the less fortunate and backward ones, like China and Korea today, for we must remem- ber that anti-peace movements thrive when people do not know where their next meal is coming from. Yes, peace, real peace, is the goal of the whole world. Though the world today may be on the right road to peace, the road has many curves, and until these curves -one being war-are straightened out, people must go on hoping, working, and praying to God that someday there will be a warless world with freedom for men of all nations.

We, the Class of '55, do hereby appoint as chief executor of this will George Gobel, "So there you are, and here we are," and that's our Will. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, we do affix our seal and signatures. Signed, Class of '55 -I 25 1- PROPHECY Here we are, Lad-ies and Gentlemen, your zany news commentators, "Bugsy" De Angelis and "Tweeta" Ciricillo with our weekly aero-vision show. We are speak- ing to you from the Grand Lazanarian Ballroom in the Hotel Pierogi on the planet Mars. Here, the Central High Class of '55 is having a celestial reunion. This is the first time in forty-tive years that the members of this class have all been together. Many significant things have happened in these four and a half decades. One of the most startling is the scientific discovery made by Dr. Conrad Baran. He syn- thesized a drug which, when injected into the bloodstream, helps to keep human beings young. He calls it his Ponce de Leon Youth Serum. To aid in the progress of science, the members of the Class of '55 were requested by their classmates to be the first people injected with the serum. They all bravely consented, and, as the experi- ment was successful, they will be here tonight looking and acting nearly the same as they did forty-five years ago. Dr. Baran's sister, Tina, has been his able assistant in all his work. We are glad that both will be able to attend the reunion tonight. That roaring sound you hear in the background, ladies and gentlemen, is Rocket No. 9 coming in for a landing. We will now take you outside the ballroom to see the arriving members of the Class of '55. First comes the pilot, the former Irene Rusinko. Renee consented to drive the rocket, since prior to her marriage she had been a pilot for the New Moon Rocket Lines. Her co-pilot on this trip, Pauline Perun, is tal ing excitedly to some of the guests. Do you suppose she is describing the hard time she and Renee had on another trip dodging a huge comet that was headed for their rocket ship? The passengers are now disembarking from the space ship. Let's talk with a few of them. "Senator McNabb, how did you make out in your debates about bringing jupiter into the United Planets ?" "The decision to admit jupiter was reached, and as soon as the conference was adjourned, I hurriedly boarded this express- rocket. It's sure nice seeing you two again. I think I'll go in now and see the rest of the old gang." Here comes that famous trio, "The Rocketettes," consisting of Angie Dello Stritto, Marge Siracusa, and Rose Durante. The girls' specialty dance is very popular at the Venus De Milo Hotel, where they are appearing nightly. They have to get ready to rehearse their act for the class program tonight. That's probably why they are rushing past us without stopping. Let's try to catch that human comet running towards us. "Say, Tyna-Tyna Homick!" "Oh, hello there! Sorry, but I can't stop and talk because I want to be the first to get the scoop on our class reunion. I'm the editor of 'The jupiterian' newspaper, you know." Look at racing Janice Morrow, star reporter of "The jupiterianj' and speedy Judy Smith, the newspaper's top photo-editor, trying to keep up with Tyna. Like all reporters, they must keep up a very fast pace. "Say, Bugs, whatis that thing coming towards us ?" "Oh, don't get alarmed, Tweeta. That's only our Hedda Hopper, with one of her fabulous hat creations! You do remember Alice Pitcher, don't you ?" "I thought I saw a familiar face under those extended antennas, Bugs. Do you think she brought her famous assistant designer, Gloria Pacelli, with her?" "Naturally. Here she comes now with Alice's model, Diane Suborski. just look at the hat on Diane! Let's find out what Alice calls it." "Hi, girls! Would one of you mind telling us what that bonnet is called?" "But, naturally! This is called 'A Tootsie Torpedo.' It won the prize for origin- ality in Donna Shreve's Beret Contest at the Milky Way Salon." Maybe some of you listeners will remember that Pat Murinka also won a Hrst prize for her colorful hat creation, "Little Martianmellow Men." Doris Teabo models all of Pat's creations. -j 26 1- "Boy, Tweeta, I wonder if Sue Butler and Pete Killian will be able to come tonight." "Well, Bugs, I hate to inform you, but that bald-headed guy walking by is Peter, and the lady on crutches, with him, is Sue." "So that's what happens when chemists blow up their labs!" "Head Chemist Evelyn Rogers was away at the time, and she couldn't cprevent the situation. However, Pete and Sue received excellent care from nurses Lin a Paul, Nancy Perron and Elease Chick." The last passenger is now descending from Rocket Whoop-it-Up. Why, that must be the president of New Moon Rocket Lines, Joanna Cimpi, herself! Another rocket, The Star jumper, is zooming in for a landing, too. Let's go over there and meet some more guests. How quickly it has landed! The door is already open. The first passengers to descend are Carole Green and Ellen Hickey. They have to hurry to the hotel to prepare the food for this festive occasion. As you may know, they are two of the chefs at Patty Anderson's Venus De Milo Hotel. Head Chef Mar- tino, who arrived earlier, will probably sample all the food to make sure it is superb. He is fussy, as most chefs are, and he won't permit any food which is not perfect to leave the kitchen. One true blessing tonight for the volunteer dishwashers, Rena Matzen and Pat- ricia Burns, will be Lee Lasher's stupendous Flying Saucer Dishwashing Machine. It will be a treat for Rena and Pat, since they have to wash dishes by hand for their fourteen children. Joanne Nobes, Joanne Smeaton, and Marguerite Carnicelli, all ex- cellent waitresses, have volunteered their services on this memorable occasion. These girls, now married, are kept on their toes catering to their families. Barbara Lober, hostess for tonight, is coming toward us. She is probably looking for her boss, jean Cecchini, who is president of the Red Star Rocket Express Lines. Dorothy Logue is vice-president of this corporation, while Rose Marie Simmons, Evelyn Closs and Nancy Gromick are junior partners. "Well, I believe most of our classmates have arrived, Bugs. What do you say we go inside?" "Let's visit the bartender, Ronnie Pelc, and see if we can snitch some Burpsi- Cola. It sure was nice of Linda Heinzmann to supply the class tonight with this tasty drink from her factory." It looks as if Linda, Sales Manager Naomi Moore and Advertising Agents Sonia Chamulak and Glenda Loyster are discussing a big transaction with their attorney, Trudy McLean, at table No. 4. Mary Lou Deacy and Joan Fedor, partners in the firm, are evidently acting as advisors for this transaction. At table No. 5 are joan Fraczek and Charlene Fares, who own the Sweet Babe Diaper Factory. With them are their two best consumers, the former Kenna twins, each of whom has three sets of twins herself. "Hey, Tweeta, who's that up there swinging from the chandelier ?" "Gee, Bugs, don't you recognize him? It's the football hero of our teen-age days and the now colossal Horset Racer, Bill Lowery. For heaven's sake, what is he doing up there? My guess is that he caught a whiff of Sue Neuman's new perfume product, Venitioa Sensation. Say, isn't that his manager, Maria jose Manzari, telling him to come down?" "Yes, Bill is to be in the championship race tomorrow at the Sweep-it-Downs, and Maria wants him to save his energy. Say, Tweeta, I see the ever popular band- leader, Sam Scozzari, organizing his musicians. What do you say we take our seats? I think the program is about to begin." Let's take a peek at the program notes. Gale Pappert, well known as chairman of the Planetary Congress, is to be the mistress of ceremonies tonight. Ronald Coombe will do an excerpt from his latest movie, a recent revision of "Gone with the Hurricane." To conclude the program, our famous songstress Mary Etta Ryan will sing her new ballad, "Slow Rocket to Saturn." Well, Ladies and Gentlemen, as our aero-vision show comes to a close, we want to remind you to view our mental telepathy show next week. Then we'll be broad- casting from jupiter. We hope you have enjoyed meeting the members of the Class of '55. So-"If you want to see mugs, tune to Tweeta and Bugs." .-I 27 IT W iw QSM M ' s. im? QD Hi ..- 3 m ii gi ll LQ.

The play takes place in the Minton living-room in Ashton in early summer.The Minton residence is just like any average American home until Diana Minton, the Minton's eldest daughter, discovers that her boy friend, Tom Corning, has returned home after being in japan for two years. During their first evening together, Tom is surprised to find that Diana has changed considerably during his two-year absence. Tom can hardly believe it when Diana tells him that she works at the local auto school overhauling cars and trucks. After Tom loses a bet on a ball game to Diana and she succeeds in starting a car when his attempts to start it have failed, their re- union ends abruptly with his walking out on her. Gale Pappert plays the intellectual Diana, and Tom McNabb, the dismayed engineer. Grandma Thornton, characterized by Suzanne Neuman, arrives just in time to play Cupid to Tom and Diana. Tyna Homick, as Mrs. Minton, gives her mother some stiff competition, for she believes that Diana can win Tom only by reading books and being intelligent. The trouble is, however, that Diana is too intelligent. While Mrs. Minton is worrying about Diana, Eve Tyler, an attractive Southern widow played by Wanda Kenna, is playing up to Mr. Minton with her sweet talk and ways. Like many a poor hen-pecked husband, Mr. Minton, as played by Lee Lasher, is very much flattered when the flirtatious and seemingly helpless Mrs. Tyler places her problems in his hands. "Scoots," the Minton's youngest daughter, is continually getting into mischief and causing an uproar in the Minton household. Her many comical antics are repro- duced by Tina Baran. jerry, Diana's sixteen year old sister, has already caught her man and so she tries to help Diana catch Tom. jerry leads her boy friend Albert around by the nose, but he doesn't seem to mind it. These two typical teenagers are played by Norma Jean DeAngelis and Ronald Pelc. Theresa Ciricillo and Mary Etta Ryan add much to the humor which prevails throughout the play in their respective roles as Delores Megglehammer and Mrs. Simmons. Delores is a washed-out, singing maid who has frequent troubles with the members of the family and whose main objective seems to be to displease Mrs. Min- ton. Mrs. Simmons, Grandma's glum, sour-faced nurse, is always running in and out with a heavily laden wheelchair, trying to fulfill Grandma's many requests. Anthony Martino, as the Sure-Shot Man, is called to the Minton home to fum- igate Delores' bedroom after bed bugs have been set loose in it by the mischievous "Scoots." The climax of the play occurs when Diana and Mrs. Minton have to decide whether to listen to Grandma, who is determined to get Diana and Tom together. They do follow her suggestion, and with Mr. Minton's help, Grandma stages a re- hearsal to show Diana the technique to use in winning Tom. Although the real per- formance by Diana and Tom turns out to be just the opposite of their rehearsal, their purpose is achieved and Tom does propose. Diana's meek "yes" is too much for Grandma, who faints as the curtains close. Stage Managers Irene Rusinko and Doris Teabo worked especially hard and really deserve a great deal of credit for making the production a. success. We of the cast and of the Senior Class would like to thank Mrs. Page, our won- derful director, whose countless efforts made "A Little Honey" into a "honey" of a play that was acclaimed by both cast and audience.

After the Sophs paraded on Genesee Street to show their costumes to the Friday night shoppers, there was a party at the school. The chaperones for the party were Mrs. Alice McLean, Mrs. Ernest Smeaton, Mrs. Alex Marullo, Miss Leonard, and Miss Superko. During the evening a kangaroo court was held, and the Sophs performed for the crowd. We will never forget Harry Zamniak who, dressed as a woman, sang "St. Louis Woman." To usher in the winter season, the Sno-Ball Dance with all its royal splendor was held on December 17. The king and the queen chosen by ballot were Peter Kil- lian and Helen Kenna, a charming couple. The other well-deserving candidates were Conrad Baran, Bill Lowery, Mary Lou Deacy, and Rose Marie Durante. The throne was a sleigh, and snowball decorations throughout the gymnasium carried out the winter atmosphere beautifully.

D avid Bishop The Student Council, the governing organization of the student body, is made up of the students, by the students, and for the students. The officers are elected by the entire student body, through secret ballots, about May of the year before they take office. In September, when school begins, each homeroom elects a representative and an alternate to send to the meetings. This year the Student Council has discussed and passed many "Bills" for the good of the school. Among them are the following: One of the nrst items discussed at our meeting was the sale of book covers. They are really attractive, with a picture of Central High School on the front and a Mercury head on the back, and have sold like "hotcakes." Next, the members of the Student Council voted to sell tickets to the football games and later did so. The games proved to be very exciting. A discussion was later held concerning a school store. It was decided that the store would sell paper, ink, and pencils and that it would be open during the noon hour, before school, and during seventh bell. It was voted that the Council buy a public address system for the school, and the public address system was purchased. The system was first used at the annual Student Council "Sno-Ball" dance on December 17. A list of rules as to who could use the system was put before the Council at a later meeting. A constitution was discussed in the Student Council, and it was decided that a committee be appointed to look over the old constitution. The committee did so and revised it. Later, it was decided that the parliamentary method of procedure would be used to keep the meetings in order and to make it possible to accomplish more. The president, in carrying out some of his campaign promises, purchased some mirrors for the boys' gym, after consulting the Council. The Student Council is the democratic system in the schools today for pupils to obtain experience in governing. The preceding accomplishments serve to illustrate what can be carried out with the joint consent of the students and the faculty. ...I 41 17 R , A + ,T M, ,Q V ,. ff' n A 'Wulf - 7' K H , JV7. ,f 'h 4 mm-, fa fs f V 1 . . ..- ,---. - .

Numbering fifty girls, the group began preparations for the Thanks- giving assembly program immediately. In November, Evelyn Closs and Nancy Gromick journeyed to Mexico, New York, to participate in the Central New York State Music Festival. Twenty-one girls were selected to comprise the Christmas Chorus which accom- panied the play, "Amahl and The Night Visitors." We were proud of our results in cappella" singing fsinging without accompanimentj. The soloists for the Christ- mas program were Donna Komanecky, Norma De Angelis, Theresa Ciricillo, and Alice Pitcher. On February third, Donna Komanecky and Mary Etta Ryan sang with john Zamniak for a Morning Musicals Program at the Cayuga Museum of History and Art. An assembly program "Stratford College, That's Us!" was presented in March. It was fun to prepare for this entertainment for the entire school. In May each year is held the Auburn Music Department Concert at East High School. We always love to wear our evening dresses, and we try hard to represent our school worthily. -f 44 1- NINTH GRADE GIRLS' CHORUS Although not so large as last year, the chorus had quality if not quantity. After becoming used to singing in three parts, we began rehearsing Irving Ber- lin's "Say It With Music," an arrangement of "Three Blind Mice" and Noble Cain's "joshua Fit De Battle of Jericho." We prepared most of the year for the Music Festival to be held in May at East High School. We were invited to sing at a meeting of the Professional Woman's Club at the Woman's Union in April.

B landyna Pelc OTHER MEMBERS Judy Cholette Janice Morrow Theresa Ciricillo Joanne Nobes Linda Heinzmann Evelyn Rogers Barbara Kowalczyk Eleanor Tokarz Barbara Lober Under the direction of Miss Ellis, the school librarian, a group of girls help in the library each year. Any girl from the ninth grade through the twelfth is eligible to work in the library, and those who are chosen by Miss Ellis are proud of the honor. Among the many varied jobs that these girls perform, the most usual are to check books in and out of the library, put returned books back on the shelves in their proper places, and do assistant librarians' work with the seventh and eighth grade classes. The staff are grateful for the opportunity to work with Miss Ellis and to gain skill in the important library work that she teaches. Now that we have just learned that she is retiring at the end of this year, we wish Miss Ellis all health and happiness during the years that lie ahead. ...I 46 1...- SENIOR AND JUNIOR HONOR SOCIETIES asf pl mfg!!
