Text from Pages 1 - 116 of the 1952 volume:

— We, Che Seniors Gis Central aciool E, the class of 1952, are proud to present our ‘‘Bmbers’’ built upon the theme of ‘Knighthood. ”’ As we journey through life, the Castle of Camelot appears and disappears before our eyes just as it did in the days of the armor-clad knights. The castle, of course, is our goal toward which we are constantly striving. When we first entered school, we were like the young pages who served the King. In ninth grade we became heralds; in tenth and eleventh grades, squires; and in twelfth grade, knights. Through the years, we have increased our knowledge to the extent where we can now take the oath of Knighthood just as the young pages dreamed of doing as they became older and more versed in the ideals of Knighthood. ‘Live pure, speak true, right wrong, and follow the King’’ were the ideals of every Knight and truth, loyalty, and virtue inspired them to unselfishness and heroism. Naturally, we do not intend to go forth into the world clad in armor and riding a fiery steed. However, we all have the ability to gird ourselves with those virtues which are essential to carrying out the standards required of a Knight. Also, it is true that we cannot follow the King, in the same sense implied in the rules of Knighthood, but we can and should follow God, who is really our King. For it is through him and him only that we can fulfill the required essentials of a Knight and finally attain our goal. Therefore, as we leave our beloved school, we fix our eyes steadfastly ahead toward the Castle of Camelot knowing that our ‘‘King’’ will remain constantly at our side to lead us to the ways of purer living, truer speaking and every other character- istic required of us--the future ‘‘Knights”’ of the ‘‘King. ”’ ‘‘The old order changeth, yielding place to new, And God fulfills himself in many ways; Lest one good custom should corrupt the world. he ‘‘The Idylls of the King”’ Alfred Tennyson 4 OFe word Samuel D' Antonino Cfo you, Mr. D’Antonino, we of the Senior Class dedicate our 1952 ‘“‘Embers.’’ As the Knights of Old patterned them- selves after Sir Galahad, the Prince of Knights, so the members of the Senior Class look to you. During your four years at Eden Central School you have proved as good a friend and teacher as one ever will find, Your sound advice concerning our many problems and your w illing assistance is greatly appreciated and will always be remembered.

However there are certain parallels we can draw from this illustration to fit modern living. To be sure, you will not be called upon to ride a fiery steed to battle some fierce dragon or to defend some fair lady, but there are battles to be fought of much more far - reaching im- portance. Many people throughout the world are either turning to Communism or becoming very reactionary and intolerant of any way of life that does not exactly coincide with theirs. There are too few people who are standing up for the principles of truth, integrity and justice toward all mankind. Herein lies a challenge that would have called forth all the daring the bravest knight could have mustered. I hope the Class of 1952 will be equal to this challenge, and I wish to congratulate them on their 8 , 1 JC 6 a) L a is ' te A LOLLEA ASSISTANT. PRINCIPAL Miss Jackson and Mr. Andetson R. ANDERSON, as assistant principal of our school and supervisor of the first six grades, has numerous duties and responsibilities. With the assistance of his very efficient secretary, Miss Jackson, he takescharge of the attendance re- cords, the approving of excuses, the granting of passes, and the keeping of registers. Another of his numerous duties is the supervision of the school bus system: the daily buses, the buses for games, the buses for field trips, and special buses for the annual picnics sponsored by every class every year. In all cases, he stresses safety rules and regulations for all who ride or drive any of our buses. Having a genuine interest in the welfare of the school and the children, Mr. Anderson has proved himself to be a real friend to the high school students and to the teachers and students of those grades over which he has super- vision. As a true knight guided and trained the little pages at each step of their progress to the grade of herald, so does Mr. Anderson, with elastic patience, help the little ones to respect truth, to understand the rights of others, and to be ready to help a worthy cause. BOARD OF EDUCATION ? i HE unselfish, voluntary services of the Board of 2 Education make our school the smoothly function- a a So ing organization it is. This group of individuals is responsible for the many advantages we are able to enjoy. Through them we are provided with the most capable teachers and staff, the finest books, and es- sential modern equipment, Their generosity and their interest in our welfare have enabled us to have social hours, assemblies, spectator buses to the games, and our own student government. In providing for us the best means of obtaining a good education, these sagacious knights and ladies have placed in our hands King Arthur’s mighty sword, Excalibur, with which we may conquer the evils of the world.

This year, under the leadership of Mr. Alexander Wysocki, the Eden Parent-Teacher Association has again achieved its goals, and has succeeded in es- tablishing a closer relationship among all who are concerned with our education. Together, they studied our Language Arts and Social Studies program, our Promotional policy, the question of Television and Education, and the Regent’s Examinations.

This court of gentle knights and ladies, under the guidance of Mr. Anderson, has spent many hours in studying new ways of teaching gracious manners and good reading habits to the little pages. The elementary school faculty has done a commendable job in building a firm foundation that will see these future ‘‘Knights’’ through the Junior and Senior High. Not only do these teachers spend numerous hours each day with their young charges, but they unselfishly devote their after-school hours to conferences with the parents of their students in order to familiarize them with their children’s problems and progress.

To secure the best and latest methods of instruction, these instructors under the guidance of Mr. Peck, have devoted one whole year to group meetings to study student needs, new courses of study in each subject, and practical uses of Audio- Visual Aids. . With unflagging zeal and wholesome example, these teachers have kept the ideals of honor, truth, and justice ever foremost in the minds of their students. | y A gt | First row: Mr. O'Rorke, history; Mr. Duffy, history.

Vara, Mr. Jenkins IDED by Mr. Jenkins, our full time guidance counsellor, each student has chosen the course individually suited to him. He has helped us solve our vocational problems and has aided us in de- cisions regarding our further edu- cation.

In all, thirteen classes were in session on four different evenings with a total enrollment of over two hundred persons. Evidence of the stronghold Adult Education has in our community is the fact that this is the sixth consecutive year that it has been in operation. director of the program.

Foroscij is the Chorus and Music Appreciation First Aid To Injured Americanization HOME ECONOMICS History of Che Class of 1952 NE bright September morning in the year 1940, Danny Agle, Carl Bauer, Sue Bray- miller, Carl Chelius, Jimmy Cole, Freddy Haier, Nelson Hickling, Jim Gier, Marian Reed, Jane Rice, Bob Schumer, and Jack Strawbrich entered Mrs. Morgester’s first grade in the newly completed Eden Central School. Armed with pencils, tablets, and crayons, they were ready for the battle of readin’, writin’, and ’rithmetic. We put on two plays, ‘“‘Br’er Rabbit’? and ‘‘Lincoln’s Boyhood’’, in the second grade, and gained a new member, Clifford Palmeter. No one will forget the time Marian put hot water on the goldfish. Third and fourth grade memories are especially clear in our minds. Nothing was as enjoyable as our trips to the woods and Miss Board- man’s noon-hour stories. Also, these years brought us five new friends--Marlene Bruns, Sam Catapano, Dick Hornung, Roger Mashke, and Joyce Papich. Fifth grade passed quickly, and we found we were beginning the final and most memorable year of our elementary grades. We presented an Irish play in assembly and held a picnic behind the school at the end of the year. The theme of our graduation into the Junior High was the United Nations, and Carl Bauer, Joyce Papich, and Marlene Bruns were the main speakers. Herb Bogner and Bob Sloma joined us during this year. Seventh grade gave us an entirely different curriculum, and also four new additions to our class--Mary Ann Catalino, Jan Jakiel, Irene Krycia, and Peggie Sherman. Gerald Schmittendorf and Marlene Bruns were elected presidents of the respective home- rooms. During the ninth grade, we became conscious of the importance and advantages of participating in the school government. Sam was elected president of the Junior High Student Association and helped promote the purchase of a New York State flag for the auditorium. Among our new class acquaintances were Ray Dayka, Alice Domin, George Gates, John Kozak, Charlotte May, Donna Neifer, Edgar Preischel, and John Salewski. The evidence of our readiness to enter the Senior High was indicated by our ninth grade graduation. ' ‘‘The Pigskin Hop’’ was the name given to our first dance, the Sophomore Hop. It was a great success with most of the class participating. Gary Sargent and Paul and Allen Wollenberg, this year’s new members, made friends thick and fast. We found our Junior year to be almost as exciting as our Senior year. Nelson Hickling was elected Junior Class President, and we received our long-desired school rings. Sue Braymiller and Gerald Schmittendorf were selected as king and queen of our festive Junior Prom, ‘‘Mardi Gras.’’ Valerie Mott, our Editor, and Mary Munich joined our ranks late in the year. ; Then came the happy, busy year in dear old 204. What a merry time we had as we sold notebooks and banners, planned our yearbook, and gave a fish dinner at the town hall. A magazine subscription campaign with Nelson Hickling as captain of the boys’ team and Marlene Bruns as captain of the girls’ team was also conducted to raise money to finance our yearbook and Washington trip. The arrival of Sharon Kreckel and Pat Slaughenhaupt completed the present members of our Senior Class. We shall always remember Mrs. Pierce for her capable leadership as Senior advisor as well as her cheery good morning and bulging briefcase. After the Senior Ball, our picnic, and Regents, we shall pass through the gateway. of graduation, but the haunting memory of ‘‘Eden Forever”’ will linger always in our hearts, as we set forth on our quest to seek the Magic Castle of Camelot. e Oele@ I C5 G2 | SENIOR ADVISOR " Honor and truth and manhood.

Perhaps that’s why we oft resent the wisdom That older persons have at their command. The false security we felt as children Has left us now, and here alone we stand Against the world, at Graduation’s Gateway, An utterly bewildered little band. At seventeen we know that Youth is eager To read the pages of the Book of Life, To hurry over parts that seem to bore us To those that picture action, color, strife. We need your patience to tone down our vigor; We need your smile and friendship every day; We need your faith to help us win our battles; We need you there beside us all the way. You need us, too, because you are the artist While we, the plastic clay, bring you release; Though each is incomplete without the other, Together we might mold a masterpiece. Forgive us then, if in our clumsy effort To snatch some crumbs of joy ere we depart, We, in our thoughtless eagerness and hurry, Have wounded any kindly, loving heart. To you: our teachers, parents, and advisors, We make our plea to have you love us still. Your trust, your faith, your patient understanding Will all our lives with pleasant memories fill. ‘‘The Class of ‘'52’’ and Gertrude Pierce 27 What are they???? G. Gates, N. Hickling, P.

They have par- ticipated in Student Government activities and carried . on vigorous campaigns for their candidates. The highlight of the year was the Sophomore Hop, “Fall Time Frolic.’’ Its informal setting of harvest fruits, autumn leaves, cornstalks, pumpkins, gourds, and 7 gay balloons is well remembered by all who attended.

As a science project they modeled clay animals and arranged them in cages, their zoo attracting much attention and favorable comment. After the first report cards were given out, they decided to make envelopes in which to keep the cards clean; therefore the art consultant helped them design their own monograms for the envelopes. Their recent study of New York City with its sky- scraper buildings, subways, and other sights inspired them to make a mural of Manhattan, and many of them hope to make a personal visit to the largest city in the Empire State. URING the year, the fourth graders have increased their knowledge and understanding of the peoples of different countries and eras.

Cf HE aim of the Second Grade is to build a strong foundation of the fundamentals, especially reading, and to sow the seeds of morality, democracy, and insatiable curiosity for knowledge. During the year the Second Graders read many stories about boys and girls like themselves. In Science they studied about different animals and brought frogs, snails, toads, grasshoppers, and other animals to school. They were eager to learn about the community in which they live and the people who help to protect their homes. First Row: P. Rogers, P. Williams, W. Place, H. Wielkie. Second Row: J. Richardson, C.

The story has to do with young Kirby Stevens who has a definite talent for musical composition, but whose tastes run to melody and beauty rather than swing and syn- copated noise. His ambition is to compose a great waltz song, one that will live in the hearts of its hearers. In this ambition, he is derided by all his young friends and his family, but Sue Oliver, who is in love with Kirby believes in his future and never ceases to encourage him. Kirby is so engrossed in his music, however, that he almost loses Sue to Gilmore Scott, his rival. Kirby composes the waltz song ‘‘My Sweetheart, ’’ never dreaming that un- conciously it is Sue who inspired it. After many discourage- ments, Kirby finally gets a hearing for his song and almost overnight, it sweeps the country. Just as suddenly he realizes his latent love for Sue and reclaims her as she is about to wed Gilmore. The en- tire operetta abounded in the sparkle and fresh- ness of vivacious youth, and will long be remem- bered by those who attended. Seated: S. Sammarco, R. Beyer, B. McGuire, A. Crowe.

Kirby Stevens Joel Cotten Lilac Charlotte Renschler » Mrs. Lucy Stevens Peggy Sherman Sue Oliver Carol Ziegelhofer Patricia Summers Karen Emerick SCHOOL PLAY HIS year, the main dramatic presentation of our school was ‘‘You Can’t Take It With You. ”’ At first the Sycamores seem extravagantly mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. The plot shows how Tony, attractive young son of the Kirbys falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home, on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by the Kirbys, who are invited to eat cheap delicatessen food, shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question. The Sycamores, however, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view. Seated: First Row: J. Brzezicki, E. Cheney, A. Wollenberg. Second Row: M. Hammond, J. Rice, P.

Composed of fifty members from the fourth, fifth, and sixth grades, this spirited group, directed by Mr. Hahn, played in the Spring Concert and has provided music at the beginning and end of many elementary assemblies. The mem- bers of this band are looking forward to the day when they will step into their places in the Senior Band. The Junior Orchestra, consisting of about fifteen members from grades five to eight is under the able direction of Mrs. Gangi. Meeting once a week, this newly organized group played admirably for the Spring Con- cert and the Senior graduation. JUNIOR BAND 77 " wrt , 335 TIS First Row: Horace, Hilda Smith, Lynn, Lane Ehmke.
