MR. EDWIN C. 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.
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
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
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."

'F "Sweet Land of Liberty! Of Thee I Sing"
- ll AMERICA, by samuei Francis smith
C E, the Seniors of Eden Central School, in order to perpetu-
ate the memory of those patriots who have given their lives
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
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."

BOAI-RD OF EDUCATIO
Mr. R. Brindley, Mrs. D. Smith, Mr. C. Hobbie, Mr. R. Beehler, Mr. I. Weinar, Mr. C. Chelius, Mr. E. 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.

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.

MR. EDWIN C. PECK, SUPERVISING PRINCIPAL
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.
ASSISTA T PRI CIPAL
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.

HIS year, Mr. Carruthers, our new
guidance teacher, has helped the students
decide what field of work to enter. Each
student from grades eight through twelve
had a conference with him and was given
in addition to helpful advice, interesting
booklets to look over if he so desired.
Miss Congilosi, Mrs. O'Bryant, Mrs. Carpenter, Mrs. Krohn,
Mrs. Shepker, Mrs. Miller.
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

EFOR the most of us, our transportation
to and from school depends on the

drive them. In addition to this they have
willingly and safely driven to athletic

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.

C RS. Stoll, our dental hygienist, has
constantly checked and campaigned
for good health practices and frequent den-

concern has made possible better all round
health, and has proven a successful example
of preventive medicine.

HYSICAL examinations are given to
new students and also those in kinder-

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
Classes were conducted on a four nights a week schedule in cooperation with the "Lighted
Schoolhouse" movement in New York State.

CLASS HI TORY
N 1940, we, pioneers in Eden Central, began our journey in our covered wagons to the newly
opened gates. 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.

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

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.

this year and are eagerly looking forward to be-
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

CHE seventh graders found their first year of
Iunior High offering many new courses of
study. 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.

together. 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

URING the first semester, Miss Saunders was called home because of illness in the family and
Mrs. Luders taught for the rest of the semester. 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.

Billy Agle give a report of his personal visit there. His description of the Smithsonian In-
stitute prompted the class s trip to the Historical Building in Buffalo. As a result of stressing dic
tionary work, one boy received IOOZ on a California Achievement Test.
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.

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.

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.

C RS. 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.

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.

Y initiating a program of Audio-Visual Aids into their curriculum, the second graders are
more vitally interested in everything that surrounds them. 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.

library books. 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.

EFORE Thanksgiving Miss Ess' s Pre-Primers spent much time talking about school, their
homes, and their families. They became interested in science this year. 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.

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.

COR most children, kindergarten was their first introduction into a large society. 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.

C AKING new friends, finding new joys, and experiencing new adventures in living, constituted
the main part of the life of the kindergarten children in Mrs. Gerrie' s and Miss Allen' s room
The past year found them visiting many places of interest including the Post Office, dairy, airport,
fire house, greenhouse, woods, and, most important, Santa in Buffalo. Together they made vege-
table soup, butter, and cookies. Their daily routine contained a multitude of various enjoyable ac-
tivities: sharing music, stories, and games, using paints and crayons, and making objects out of

CPARTICIPATING in the Erie County Civil Defense Program, the students have practiced ac-
tion in case of an air attack. 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.

FEATURE event in 1952 was the presentation of our annual school play, "The Curious
Savage" by Iohn Patrick, under the direction of Mrs. Bigelow of Buffalo.
Relating the humorous story of Mrs. Savage, who hides her fortune in a stuffed Teddy Bear
the play proceeds to portray the antics of her stepson and stepdaughter in their eager attempts
to get possession of her fortune. Her family finally forsake their quest and permit Mrs. Sav-
age to continue using her money for charitable purposes.
The audience's enjoyment was itself testimony to the talented acting of the cast and to our
constantly improving dramatics department.

Squad. Steady teamwork, precision passing, and bulls-eye shooting, have led Eden into high
honors of the basketball court. Although some of the players will graduate, the remaining ones,
plus a few of the Junior Squad, will constitute another fine team for Eden.

ASEBALL is rapidly becoming a more popular sport here at Eden. Under the coaching of
Mr. Batorski, the Eden nine have produced the tension of many close games. 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. A valuable aid in these games was John LeFevre, with a batting average of

C-QHIS track team, with Mr. Hagen as its coach, has made Eden proud because of the records
it has set. 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.

UR Iunior Varsity made an effort to train the intellect to master certain fundamental skills in-
herent in the individual' s nature. 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. Although defeat reigned over victory, the boys dis-
played much potentiality and are destined to become varsity material.

NDER the leadership of the Captains, Lucy Cataldo of the Senior Varsity, and Mary Laine
Phatiger, of the junior Varsity, the ten cheerleaders have led the student body through many
close games. 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. It' s "hats off" to the cheer-
leaders for a job well done during the football and basketball season.

NEW field sport has been added at Eden. The cross-country team, coached by Mr. Hagen, is
composed of boys with great stamina, strong hearts, and an enthusiasm for running. 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.
OYS' intramurals, under the direc- GCI' HE girls' intramural games, super-

of the very important ways by which Eden tween freshmen, sophomore, junior, and
Central School students build up their stan- senior homerooms. Later the girls en-
dards of fair play, good health, and good joyed competition in volleyball and softball.
sportsmanship. In this participation they built healthy bod-
ies and developed better playing ability.
