PECK, SUPERVISING PRINCIPAL O you, Mr. Peck, our principal, our friend, and our ideal citizen, we, the "Class of 1953," dedicate our yearbook, "Embers." As an officer with the rank of Lieutenant Commander inthe service of the United States Navy in World War II, as an educator in the public schools of New York State, as a former member of the New York State Department of Education, as an advocate of student government in Eden Central School, and as a leader in the worthy projects of our community, you have proved yourself to be a credit to your country, your profession, and your community. 4 PRE IDE T ADDRESS ' Y Fellow Citizens: The world and we have passed the midway point of a century of continu- ing challenge. We sense with all our facilities that forces of good and evil are massed and armed and opposed as rarely before in history. This fact defines the meaning of this day. We are summoned, by this honored and historic cer- emony, to witness more than the act of one citizen swearing his oath of service, in the presence of his God. We are called as a people, to give testimony, in the sight of the world, to our faith that the future shall belong to the free. For our own country, it has been a time of recurring trial. We have grown in power and in re- sponsibility. We have passed through the anxieties of depression and of war to summit unmatched in man' s history. Seeking to secure peace in the world, we have had to fight through the forests of the Argonne to the shores of Iwo Jima, and to the mountain peaks of Korea. In the swift rush of great events, we find ourselves growing to know the full sense and meaning of the times in which we live. In our quest of understanding, we beseech God' s guidance. We sum- mon all our lmowledge of the past and we scan all signs of the future. MAN' S POWER UNSURPASSED We bring all our wit and will to meet the question: How far have we come in man' s long pil- grimage from darkness toward light? Are we nearing the light--a day of freedom and of peace for all mankind? Or are the shadows of another night closing in upon us ? Great as are the preoccupations absorbing us at home, concerned as we are with matters that deeply affect our livelihood today and our vision of the future, each of these domestic problems is dwarfed by, and often even created by, this question that involves all human-kind. This trial comes at a monent when man' s power to achieve good or to inflict evil surpasses the brightest hopes and the sharpest fears of all ages. We can turn rivers in their courses, level mountains to the plains. Ocean and land and sky are avenues for our colossal commerce. Disease diminishes and life 'lengthens . Yet the promise of this life is imperiled by the very genius that has made it possible. Nations amass wealth. Labor sweats to create and turns out devices to level not only mountains but also cities. Science seems ready to confer upon us, as its final gift, the power to erase human life from the earth. Skit At such a time in history, we who are free must proclaim anew our faith. This faith is the abiding creed of our fathers. It is our faith in the deathless dignity of man,gov- erned by eternal moral and natural laws. This faith defines our full view of life. It establishes, beyond debate, those gifts of the Creator that are man' s inalienable rights, and that make all men equal in his sight! MUST ACCEPT SACRIFICES We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose. We must be willing, individually and as a nation, to accept whatever sacrifices may be required of us. A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both. The basic precepts are not lofty abstractions, far removed from matters of daily living. They are laws of spiritual strength that generate and define our material strength. Patriotism means equipped forces and a prepared citizenry. Moral stamina means more energy and more produc- tivity, on the farm and in the factory. Love of liberty means the guarding of every resource that makes freedom possible from the sanctity of our families and the wealth of our soil to the genius of our scientists. Each citizen plays an indispensable role, the productivity of our heads, our hands and our hearts is the source of all the strength we can command, for both the enrichment of our lives and the win- ning of peace. The peace we seek, then, is nothing less than the practice and the fulfillment of our whole faith, among ourselves and in our dealings with others. It signifies more than stilling the guns, easing the sorrow of war. More than an escape from death, it is a way of life. More than a haven for the weary, it is a hope for the brave. This is the hope that beckons us onward in this century of trial. This is the work that awaits us all, to be done with bravery, with charity and with prayer to Almighty God." 5 Z Www fl ' llq 'W 1 , , i Q Al ,. ,fi ull' in H n , A M , 11 11 wd w 'V l if ii. wr, i l nl, K FOREWORD 'F "Sweet Land of Liberty! Of Thee I Sing" - ll AMERICA, by samuei Francis smith Y C E, the Seniors of Eden Central School, in order to perpetu- ate the memory of those patriots who have given their lives ,g in l If X . for our country, to honor those who, today, are still fighting the bat- tle of liberation, and to pledge ourselves to preserve, protect, and de- fend the precious heritage of patriotic ideals for which they fought, do edit and present this yearbook, our EMBERS of 1953. The time has come when American Youth must make a new Declaration of Independence against the ideologies that threaten democracy. By our thinking and by our labors we Americans must exert constructive influ- ence in every move we make, for this means united advancement against those also advancing destructive forces. For our symbols of Liberty or Freedom we have chosen the following: cover design, the monument to the minuternen, those forefathers who stood ready to defend their country as we stand ready to defend it today, Ex Libris, the American Eagle, emblem of The Great Seal of The United States, denoting power in peace and war, administration, the torch of the Statue of Liberty, that lamp of learning that illuminates the dark corners of the earth, seniors, the Capitol at Washington, "the beneficent face of a Q nation shining with justice and truth", grades, the covered wagon of the pi- oneer rolling along the hilly road from the Eastern gate of kindergarten to the Western gate of graduation, classrooms, Abe Lincoln, the promise of America to every man, regardless of his birth, the right to become what- ever his manhood and his vision can combine to make him, activities, the work, purpose, organization, drafting, and signing of all our famous docu- ments of history, athletics, Lincoln, the rail splitter, the embodiment of the purpose, strength, humility, and dignity of the common man in a demo - cracy, the good sportsman. Dear Citizens, we know that as we show in the pages of our book how our school is preparing us to be good citizens that our resolution will find ' an echo in your hearts: "That these dead shall not have ' V died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new H r mv birth of Freedom, and that government of the people, by the fl people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

Peck. cw HE Seniors of '53 wish to express their sincere appreciation to the Board of Education for the privileges allowed the Seniors during their projects throughout the year. The Board have been most co-operative in their endeavors to promote, in this school, a self-governing student body. In much the same manner as the Board members are elected by the parents, so the student officers are elected by the student body. This expression of freedom is typical of today' s determination to live in a free world where public education for all is possible. Through the Board' s actions and decisions we have been allowed to hold Christmas, Valentine, and Halloween parties at school and two fish dinners to raise funds for our Washington trip. They have providrad buses for our field trips, most enjoyable of which have been our roller skating parties at Angola Ri , our theater trips to see "Hamlet" and "Ivanhoe," and several splendid concerts at Kleinhans Music Hall. They have given the student body freedoms, so important today in our modern world, to show that they think of the students and children of the town as an intelligent, mature group, who are able to act wisely for the betterment of their school.

Chelius Miss Rose Clark P RE T-TEACHERS ASSOClATl0 PRESIDENT - Mr. Beyer PANEL DISCUSSION CHE Parent Teachers Associationhas produced harmony between the faculty and parents through monthly meetings in which child and school problems have been discussed. Open house was held in November and March encouraging parents to come to confer with teachers about their chil- dren' s progress. Each year the association advances a step farther in developing cooperation between parents and teachers and this year has been one of their most successful. This is partly because during several of the meetings students from various courses of study were asked to sit in and give opin- ions and comments on certain school and social subjects. One of the most thoroughly discussed topics was the one on "Does Television Harm the Average School Child?" They came to the con- clusion that those students who are serious enough about school do not let television interfere with their school work. PRESIDENT - Walter Beyer RECORDING SECRETARY - Mrs. G.

PECK, SUPERVISING PRINCIPAL 'VISA MISS KASPE RE K, SEC RETARY OUR topic of patriotism is well timed. America is beset, as it has been since its founding, by enemies from within and without. Though at present we consider communism our greatest enemy, there are others just as grievous. There are ultra reactionary elements in our government who, in a demagogic manner are chiefly for their own gain. This threat to our country bears close watching. One of the main dangers is the indifference of the major- ity of Americans. To lead worthwhile lives in these perilous times you need to be prepared. Keep alert to the dangers besetting our country. Train your- selves well physically, mentally, morally, and spiritually and you will be a credit to your coun- try, yourselves, and your families. 'QQCQ 10 ASSISTA T PRI CIPAL tax X DONALD I. ANDERSON, ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL C Y fondest wish for each of you would be that I might say, "Fear not, for tomorrow the new dawn will bring understanding between nations, tolerance among people of different races and religions, and a new era of lasting peace will emerge from the chaotic turmoil of today' s global strife." More than a wish, it is a prayer that you, of this graduating class, pro- fit from your education and discover the key to lasting world peace. Accept the challenge of the day and go forth to prove that right shall ul- timately win over might. May your love of God, home, family, and country help you to success- fully tread the pathways of life.

Ridge, Mr, Carruthers C HIS year, Mr. Carruthers, our new guidance teacher, has helped the students decide what field of work to enter.

CSHROUGHOUT the year, the pleasant service of these ladies has given our cafeteria a homelike atmosphere. Each day, they meet the 12:00 deadline, by pro- viding fine-tasting, well-balanced meals, thus contributing a substantial part to the health and enjoyment of the students and faculty. BUS DRIVERS STANDING: Mr. Wittmeyer, Mr. Bower, Mr. Garlock, Mr. Winter, Mr. Mroz, Mr. Wilcox, Mr. Pericak, Mr. Wierzba. KNEELING: Mr. Howell, Mr. Wilcox, Mr. Winkleman. EFOR the most of us, our transportation to and from school depends on the school buses and the responsible men who drive them. In addition to this they have willingly and safely driven to athletic events and for various field trips. In fact our bus drivers can boast a no-accident record in the history of Eden Central School CUSTODIANS Mr. Knoll, Mr. Kaminski C ITH the close of the students' day, the custodians' work begins. Even when their working day is over, they have willingly assisted the students with social functions, and other night activities at school. Through their example the stu- dents have come to learn an unwritten and unspoken lesson of service. DENTAL HYGIENE Mrs. Stoll, Harley Hickling C RS. Stoll, our dental hygienist, has constantly checked and campaigned for good health practices and frequent den- tal care, on the part of the students. This concern has made possible better all round health, and has proven a successful example of preventive medicine. CLINIC Miss Gressman, Dr, Krug HYSICAL examinations are given to new students and also those in kinder- garten, third, sixth, ninth and twelfth grades. Each student in the school is given an ear and eye test. In the spring, immunization shots for diphtheria and small pox are given to children of the community with their parents' permission. IGHT CHO0L DIRECTOR-Mr. Foroscij SEWING CLASS CHE Adult Education Program of the Eden Central School completed its seventh year under the direction of Mr. Leo I. Foroscij. This year the program was expanded to include a course in Trade Mathematics under the Trade Apprenticeship Program of the New York State Education Department. Auto driving was also included after a lapse of three years. Other courses offered were Arts and Drafts, Business Practices, Homemaking, Chorus, General Shop Physical Education for men and for women, Welding, Knitting, Americanization, Photography and Badminton. Classes were conducted on a four nights a week schedule in cooperation with the "Lighted Schoolhouse" movement in New York State. Registration figures this year were rather high in comparison with other years with aver- age attendance. 5 . . S . 1 -3 H. ,,e:.. , . .

Those members of our class who began and will complete the journey here are these: Ella Iean Bugenhagen, Lucy Cataldo, Edgar Cheney, Nelson Cheney, Joel Cotten, Mary Lynn Gumtow, Harley Hickling, Mary Lou Kern, Florence Mietlinski, Shirley Miller, Betty Nellis, Patricia Rebman, James Ridge, Samuel Sammarco, David Schumer, and Marlene Winter. As we traveled through the grades, we picked up new passengers and let off old ones who had made plans to travel another road. We encountered numerous difficulties and different opinions, entered childish squabbles and puppy loves, and were made to stand in the corner by our wagon masters, the grade school teachers. Yet we thank them for making the road a little smoother and the hills a little easier to ascend and for teaching us the value of cooperation and our A, B, C' s and multiplication tables. After we had conquered the first hill which brought us from the grades into junior high school, we had our first experience in making our own rules of the road in student government. Here we learned what we must remember. In order to preserve democracy and our rights and liberties, we must accept our duties and responsibilities and take an active part in our government. Upon entering ninth grade, we, with the aid of our teachers and guidance counselor, mapped out the course we desired to follow. The reasoning was instilled in us that if we continued to drive, to keep our eyes ahead, and to keep steady hands on the reins, nothing could stop us from reaching our goal and the summit of any hill we desired to climb. Unforgettable scenes along the way were the presentations of "Little Black Sambo" in second grade, "Hansel and Gretel" in fifth grade, and our dances: "The Hayseed Hop," as sophomores, the "Starlite Serenade," with Ann Crowe, a member of our class who graduated last year, as queen when we were juniors, and last but not least, our Senior Ball. We also profitted by those detours off the regular road, to the City Hall and Science Museum in Buffalo, Fort Niagara, and the Canadian Hydro-Electric Plant. These educational and pleasurable trips made while passing through the eighth grade have made a lasting impression upon us. We have now, with the assistance of our energetic and always helpful senior advisor Mrs. Pierce, reached the summit of the highest hill we had hoped to climb. We view our goal. Onward! Oh leaders of our wagon train! The horses shall not be spared until we have enjoyed to the utmost the fruits of our labors. We have sold magazines, held fish dinners, published an annual, and spon- sored dances and other activities that we might enjoy our trip to Washington. What a thrill to see the memorials to the men who made our country great and the place Where they worked! Dear God, please make us Worthy of this great gift, the democratic country in which we live.

Perhaps the most vivid in their memory is "Snowflake Swir1," their prom, with Barbara Zittel as queen of this gala affair. Sponsoring the movie, "ln Fast Company"g receiving their class ringsg participating in band, orchestra, and chorusg and having boys and girls represent them as members of the athletic teams and as cheerleaders also helped to make this an unforgettable year of high school experiences for all of them.

CW HE sophomore class look back with pride on ,,, their accomplishments of the past year. Perhaps S their most successful social activity was their sopho- more hop, "Frost Time Festival," with Jeanne Shepker as chairman. Members of their class have been ac- tive participants in numerous school activities. They had representatives in both varsity and junior varsity sports, plus two peppy cheerleaders, Carol Thompson, and Mary Laine Phatiger. Also, many students took part in band, chorus, and orchestrag nevertheless, they found time to concentrate on the intricate com- plexities of geometry, biology, English, and foreign languages.

CN HE largest freshman class in the history of Eden Central School took their places last fall in first year high. This year was marked by their entrance into more difficult scholastic fields in which they acquitted themselves creditably. The class was well represented in cross country, foot- ball, and basketball, as well as by three enthusias- tic cheerleaders. This athletic potentiality along with their scholastic records, gained for them much prestige with teachers and fellow students. Thank you's go from the freshmen to the class advisors, Miss Witzleben, Miss Collins, and Mr. O' Rorke for their aid. CLASS OFFICERS J. Messer, R. Kehe, R. Knoll ' 32 EIGHTH GRADE BACK ROW: R.

During this term they have had astronomy and geology in science and have drilled on proper pro- nunciation and enunciation in English. Since these students are entering their teens, problems of teen- agers were discussed in health classes. The history of the United States and its relation- ship with foreign countries was covered in social studies, and in mathematics they have advanced to basic geometry and algebra.

Accuracy in everyday speech and proper development of business and social letters were stressed in English. In social studies they ex.- plored the United States geographically, and in health they studied the importance of proper care for the human body. The students visited local industries and had an opportunity to examine a voting machine at the voti-ng booths. 34 I TH GRgllE i X .rs-"f l A, V 1 8 , Q .

During their social studies lessons they have taken imaginary trips to far away lands, made salt maps of a few of the countries, and made silhouettes of the continents. But most of all they enjoyed their craft corner. Here, using new tools acquired this year, they made plaster plaques and toys often used as presents. N Room 242, Mrs. Gould' s class has worked on a newspaper project and a literary magazine. The students studied editorials, news items, current events, and many other phases of news- paper writing. Interest in social studies was also created through reading material, projects, and maps. STANDING: T. Peck, J. -Neidermeyr, R. Ver Hagen, C. Vara, J. Bolton, M. Walther, D. Anderson, R. Davis, N.

In social studies the class made a Roman ac- tivity booklet and visited the Art Gallery and Historical Building in Buffalo. They wrote friendly, in- formative letters to Miss Saunders, started a class room library, made a scientific Weather chart, and studied good manners to prevent Emily Post' s frowning on them. Besides taking the field trips with the rest of the fifth grades, Mrs. Lemmler' s group has ex- plored the past in an attempt to unfold the history of the settlement of our country. Their experience brought to mind many times the perseverance of great men like Washington and Lincoln. FIFTH ROW: P. Kuppel, P. Kirst, L. Arnold, J. Zells, E. Scritchfield. FOURTH ROW: D.

As a result of stressing dic tionary work, one boy received IOOZ on a California Achievement Test. Ci HE students in Mr. MacCallum' s room, 254, have spent this year studying the various sec- tions of our illustrious country, their settlers, explorers, and inter-dependency upon each other. Another project was the exploration of the marvels of science, for they realized the necessity of a background of scientific "know-how" in our modern world. All the while they stressed the im- provement of the three r' s so they might take the jump into the sixth grade. LAST ROW: B. Ferris, L, Barnes, D. Campbell, C. Cole, S. Cheney.

Cx' HE main thread that ran through all the work Miss Wilson' s group did this year was an ap- preciation of America and the good, strong people who found and settled it. They stressed good citizenship with the theme "Helping others" holding first place. Through books of adventure reality, and fancy, the children found truth in the Book Week' s slogan "Reading ls Fun." LOVELY music booklet was made by Miss Boardman' s students and presented to Mrs. Carpenter during one of their music periods. In making the booklet, the children used infor mation acquired in English, art, and arithmetic. They used some spelling words and English know ledge in writing a story of Mozart, arithmetic, in measuring, and art work, on the cover. ON FLOOR: G. Sullivan, E. Chyreck, C. Butler. SEATED: D.

After their trip they constructed a colonial kitchen They also took trips to the Ford Plant when they studied Henry Fordg to the airport when they studied Orville Wright. CN' HE interests of Mrs. Zdzinski' s fourth grade pupils have broadened considerably. A study of their lives helped them understand themselves. They also understood the physical world a- round them better, after reading about people and events that were not in their experience. As they studied American History, they completed projects which helped them visualize the new ideas they encountered. These projects, as well as other skits and plays they presented, entertained the stu- dents and others. BACK ROW: G. Johnson, R. Hale, J. Agle, P. Gehl, M. Lutes, P. Benson, S.

Blakely and Miss Poniatowksi' s third graders have learned to become more mature in- dividuals-mentally, physically, and socially. Thus they have become more responsible and independent. During this past year they have further developed their skills and techniques and bettered their work habits. Reading has played a most important part in their school year. Their teachers have endeavored to offer better materials which could be read with ease and understanding so that the students might develop systematic and useful reading habits. Through a well directed phonics program they strength ened reading and spelling skills. ln their study of foreign countries the children have seen similar- ities and differences and their effects on themselves. From these studies stemmed the projects of making Indian villages, farms, cities, pilgrim scenes, and scenes from foreign countries such as Holland, Switzerland, and China. THIRD ROW: F. Geissman, P.

CWHE need for arithmetic ineveryday life has been realized by Mrs. Rothe s and Miss Hojnacki' s third graders. They also realized that the need goes beyond simple addition and subtraction. They have learned to interpret and solve problems, to apply knowledge of measurements, to tell time, and to do other activities involving arithmetic. Checking of answers has been greatly stressed be- cause of the importance of accuracy in our business and industrial world. 1 ' HE primary method used to create the children' s interest in healthful living was the teaching of a unit when the student could see a good reason for its introduction, for example ....... teach- ing precautions while colds were in season. They were taught that what one does is more impor- tant than what one knows. Highlights of the year were field trips they took to the cheese factory, zoo, woods, and com- munity in order to enrich their background. THIRD ROW: J. Blowers, K. Terhune, L. Kiec, J. Burrows, K.

The children in Miss Mclntyre' s and Mrs. Erickson' s rooms are constantly bringing in collections of specimens of plants and ani- mals from the surrounding area for their science exhibits and displays. In their study of community helpers, they visited a Buffalo Post Office. There they watched a postmaster run the cancelling machine and mailed their Valentines. They also made a model of a local grocery store that was big enough for them to run just like the real one. The running of this store taught them to count money and make correct change.

Mrs. Krempa' s and Miss Bie' s students have developed number concepts through the use of concrete objects. A field trip to the zoo in the spring has greatly stimulated their interest in animal life. In the classroom, the students decided on gifts that would be suitable for their parents at Christmas time. After much contemplation, the pupils decided on such things as trays, comb holders, and door stops. The highlight of the year was the Operetta, "Hansel and Gretel," in which each student demonstrated his talents on stage. SEATED ON FLOOR: S. MacHose, J. Huthsteiner, G.

Making their homes in this room Were these: three caterpillars, a snake, a frog, four snails, two goldfish, and two tur- tles. To add to their knowledge the students visited the zoo. CSIRST grade boys and girls were busy workers this past year. First they learned about fami- lies and the work each member does. The students made a large book about the farmer, his work and his animals. They also made a miniature model farm and took a field trip to a farm and dairy for further information. Miss Wrench, M.

N the early part of the year Miss Horton' s class studied the farm, our school, families, and communities. The students learned about cowboys and announced a Cowboy Day when all the boys and girls came 'to school in their cowboy outfits. The children took turns caring for their fish and turtle, Pokey and Slowpoke. Their year also included a visit to the zoo. Mrs. Morgester' s class concentrated on four major units in social studies: the school, the home, community helpers, holidays and special holidays. Through these units they became in- terested in "wanting to know what the words say." Therefore, an aroused curiosity opened the door to a reading program with a purpose and also reading for pleasure. FRONT ROW: N. Greenwood, M. Harlock, H. Osterstuck, L. Slaughenhaupt, T. Winter, K.

They did not spend the first year learning the three r' s, but building habits and sharing experiences which help students to learn skills more rapidly in the future. Activities like block building, easel painting, wood-working, clay modeling, solving puzzles, acting out plays, and sharing the doll corner gave the children opportunities to face, and solve problems. Excursions to the woods, Post Office, airport, fire house, and even to see Santa Claus contributed richly to their knowledge of the world around them. These children in Miss Davidson' s and Miss Allen' s room, have enjoyed their first year in school immensely and are eagerly looking forward to a bright future at Eden Central.

This chorus is composed of male and female voices from the freshman through senior classes, and specializes in singing four and six-part harmony. The majority of the chorus members attend courses in group singing and musical theory. Under the guiding hand of its director, Mrs. Gangi, the Mixed Chorus has enjoyed rendering many harmonious and timely numbers. WEET sounds of well-balanced harmony come to the ear as one listens to the Girls' Chorus. Members are drawn from the freshman through senior classes, with Voices ranging from contralto to mezzo-soprano. In this chorus the accent is placed upon two-part harmony, while the repertoire includes semi-classical, and popular numbers. The Girls' Chorus has rendered top- rate performances both in the Spring Concert, and as the angelic choir in the Christmas Cantata. JUN1on -GRADE Hon CHE Iunior High Chorus, a stepping stone to the senior choruses, has shown fine musical ability in the Spring Concert. and Christmas Cantata. The purpose of this chorus is to train the members in the proper choral interpretation and rendition of music. Under the direction of Mrs. Carpenter, the 55 members of this chorus are now able to sing numbers in two and three- part harmony. IRECTED by Mrs. Carpenter, the Grade School Chorus contributed an added touch of heavenly music to our Christmas Cantata. The children enjoy singing and eagerly cooperate in new musical adventures.

At the sounding of the siren, each class went to its designated place. As older students stood in lines facing the wall, the younger children sat down, head cov- ered, and waited for the "a1l-clear." The serious attitude with which the students accepted and carried out this practice drill, in- dicated a keen sensitivity to the gravity of world conditions today. NFORCING the school law, this tribunal, presided over by Judge Karl Hering, has handed 1 down both guilty and not-guilty verdicts. The jury consists' of volunteers from the student body who have committed no offense. First offenses are ordinarily reprimanded, but future ones receive a court sentence. An innovation, this year was holding court before the entire student body, a practice which proved very successful since about two hundred students attended and showed marked interest in court proceedings.

They have won five and lost seven, but the sound of that old familiar call "play ball" - brought out the spirit with wgich they played.

John Salewski broke the broadjump record, Artie Christian established a new mile record, and Ioel Cotten excelled in the 100 and 200 yard dash. Though some of the boys have already graduated and others will graduate this year, we are confident that next year' s track team will be even bigger and better.

In I.V. football, Mr. Hagen and Mr. Moore attempted to de- velop the boys physically and to teach them how to interpret the rules of the game and to uphold the standards of conduct approved by the group. If we can accomplish this, our future citizens will be prepared to face life. fi HE junior Raiders, coached by Mr. Nelson, once again upheld the tradition of E.C.S' s fine. standard of sportsmanship and fair play.

The inspiration these girls have given the team has brought about many victories for Eden. The cheerleaders conducted several pep assemblies, and pep rallies through the year to institute enthusiasm among the student body. Their excellent showmanship and precision tim- ing came from many hours of practice and co-operation in the squads.

Each race is two and one-half miles long and demands unusual powers of endurance from each athlete who wins or even finishes the race. Participants in this sport spend many long hours in training.
