ART STUDIO 55
EDEN CENTRAL SCHOOL
September, 1943 - june. 1955
For us, the "Class of 1955, " our beautiful school has been a
busy art studio of life in which we, the amateur artists, during
twelve happy years, have been painting in glowing colors a pic-
ture of the future we are planning for ourselves. Around the gal-
lery of our studio we have hung pictures to represent all the var-
ious master artists who have inspired us in our work and the ma-
terials which they have taught us to use.
The cover of our "Embers" shows three final additions to the
art gallery of our "Art Studio 55, " The three plaques indicate
honors won for outstanding work in the three major fields of high
school life: scholarship, activities, and athletics.
Please open our book and look at the division pages which are
the pictures in our gallery. There you will see the Ex Libris, a
picture of the materials we are to use in our studio, the Title Page,
a reminder of the high ideals of Eden Central in which we hold our
studiog the Foreword, our plan which shows us all the thoughtful
planning that has been done for our success as artists of education,
the Administration, the great artists molding with plastic clay the
lives of students, the Seniors, graduates painting the masterpiece,
the rainbow of the future, the Grades, the simple representation of
simple objects with pencil crayon or paint, the Classrooms, oppor-
tunities where materials and aids are ready for the student to paint
whatever his ability and ambition prompts him to accomplish, the
Activities, pictures in the gallery of several of our activities which 1
any student may choose, and an unfinished picture on which a stu-
dent has been Working in the studio, and Athletics, a picture of the
Discus Thrower or Discobolus, to represent perfection in strength
or skill .
As you follow us through our book and note all the plans, the
preparation, and the loving care that our master artists have taken
to give us inspiration, ideals, and fundamentals, you must share
with us our hopes and confidence that we shall paint, in some field
of noble endeavor, what each of us may call a masterpiece.

MR . JOHN LUNDBE RG
NCE there was a high school art
teacher who longed to produce a
great masterpiece, but he was too busy
helping his students to realize their
dreams, to work on his own masterpiece
either in oils, clay, or marble .
Though he never produced what the
world calls a masterpiece, he sent out
into the world boys and girls with a love
in their hearts and eyes of art in all its
beauty. They were his masterpiece.
This man is Mr. john Lundberg, our
busy art teacher, our friend, and our con-
stant helper. To you, Mr. Lundberg,
we, the class of 1955, dedicate our year-

PRINCIPAL 'S MESSAGE
INCE the beginning of time, art has been one
of the chief mediums by which mankind has
expressed its feelings. Since the way we feel af-
fects the way we act and live, art throughout the
ages has had a tremendous influence on civiliza-
tion. It affects both the artist and the person be-
holding the work of art.
The senior class of 1955 is to be congratulated
upon using as its theme such an important aspect
of the life of mankind.

MR. DONALD I. ANDERSON
ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
N pausing to formulate a bit of advice to you, A W AAAKA'
departing seniors, I am reminded of a little
philosophy as written by Henry Van Dyke:
"Four things a man must learn to do
If he would make his record true:
To think without confusion clearlyg
To love his fellow men sincerelyg
To act with honest motives purelyg
To trust in God and heaven securely."
My advice to you would be to follow these
four points as made by Henry Van Dyke and
yours will be a happy and profitable future.

S an amateur artist must have expert instruction and guidance before he produces his masterpiece, so our
school must have great master artists to guide us and mold for us the plan for our school life, our design
for living. This very necessary and important function belongs to our Board of Education. It is to Mr. Weinar,
our president, and the other members of the Board of Education that we owe many of our privileges here in school
They have provided us with a beautifully equipped building, fine teachers, excellent courses of study, and a
large number of extracurricular activities. The Board has allowed us to go on field trips to illustrate and supple-
ment our knowledge and understanding of our school courses. To insure our safety they instituted a course in
driver education and provided for two classes of swimming each week at South Park, one for beginners and one
for advanced students .
The members gave their permission for the Student Council to allow the students to govem themselves and
to allow us to prepare ourselves for the future by gaining experience in student govemment. We wish to express
our thanks and appreciation for all the Board of Education has done for us, not only in the past year, but all dur-
ing our years at Eden Central. The entire district is deeply grateful for the new grade school.

ATIENT, ever prepared to give us extra instruction, always willing to chaperone our dances, sports, or
other extracurricular activities, our faculty have shown they are willing to aid us . It is to them that we
owe much gratitude for each successful year in school. The teachers, as the accomplished master artists
of the world, instill us, the young amateur artists, who are just beginning our artistic careers, with a sense
of responsibility that will serve us well in the world after we have left the protection of our school years .
Often a special difficulty arises because students are unable to grasp fully the contents of a course. By
staying after school hours to give these students that extra little hit of instruction they need, our teachers
show their desire to see us make good. The faculty is always very willing to supervise or serve as advisors
for our extracurricular activities . We, at Eden Central, feel that we are very fortunate to have a faculty that
is so truly concerned and interested, not only in our work in class, but also in our activities outside of
school . We want them to know that we deeply and sincerely appreciate all their efforts to mold our charac-
ters and raise our ideals to a lofty standard.

l-IE destiny of our nation lies in the hands of those who teach its children, for it is the teachers who act
as the artists sketching the characters and molding the personalities of the leaders of the world of tomor-
row. The responsibility, the devotion to duty, and the confidence in the future are instilled in the children
from their first year of school by their grade school teachers. The grade school faculty strive very diligently
to instruct their students in reading, science, social studies, and mathematics, and encourage them to take
a lively interest in the important events and happenings of the world around them. Art, music, sports, cre-
ative hobbies--these talents and interests and many more are stressed and encouraged in the children to as-
sist them in making themselves more versatile, well-rounded persons as they progress toward adulthood in
their educations. Each teacher is able to take an active personal interest in the future of each of her pupils,
since she has many meetings with the parents to discuss the children's aptitudes, capabilities and inter-
ests . Through these methods the grade school faculty are very well prepared to equip the children under
them with the essentials of a good education and to prepare them for their roles as the artists ofthe future.

HE door of the guidance office is
never closedg it is always open t0
those students who wish to seek advice
about their school work or their pla11S
for the years ahead . Mr . Olney, our
competent guidance counselor, has nev-
er been too busy to help students decide
whether to go to work or college, which
college to attend, what career to follow,
and what kind of job to seek. By his
meeting with both parents and students
to discuss the students' desires, his
needs, and his capabilities, Mr . Olney
has greatly aided us in shaping and
molding our futures, much as a sculptor
molds his clays .
Dr, Martin, F. Boyce, Miss Gressman, D. Ball,
HE main purpose of our clinic is to
guard the students of Eden Central
against the many diseases present in our
world today. The clinic has given polio
immunization to children in the first,
second, and third levels for the past two
years. Our sports participants and cheer
leaders are given thorough physical ex-
aminations each year before they are per-
mitted to participate in any sport. The
credit for all these services must go to
Miss Pauline Gressman, our capable
nurse, and to Dr. Ronald Martin, our
Miss Schiller, K. Agle.
HE many flashing white smiles seen
around school are ample evidence of
the excellentway Miss Schiller, our dental
hygienist, has taken care of the students'
teeth. Careful annual check-ups of every
student by Miss Schiller have helped to
keep our mouths in a healthy condition.
By demonstrating to us the results of the
proper care of our teeth, Miss Schiller
has made many of us realize that besides
being attractive, bright well-cared for
teeth are also an asset to all of us, phys-
ically, mentally, and socially. Healthy
teeth made a definite contribution to a
pleasing personality .

plays an important role in maintain-

activities, to prepare the school for the
next day's classes. These after school
activities necessitate irregular hours
for 'the custodians. Too often we for-
get to show appreciation for the workof
the custodians who deserve much more
for their efforts . The seniors remem-
ber and are grateful to these friends.

drivers have been attending special night
school classes conducted by Mr. Nelson.
Several experts in the training of bus driv-

Hammond, Mrs . Richard Polasik, Mr. Kenneth Savage, Mr . Joseph Kwilos, and Mr. Ralph LeFeVre .
This group assisted in organizing classes, promoting campaigns, and in general, informing the public of
the Eden Central Adult Education program. With Mr. Foroscij as director, they have completed their ninth
successful year in our community.
One of the projects undertaken by the committee was to send a member of the Americanization class
to Albany to watch the State Govemment in action. Mrs . Alfrieda Looze, a German war bride residing in
this community, was chosen to attend this session in Albany. Upon retuming, she spoke before many
community groups telling of her experiences. All expenses were covered by the generous contributions of
various community organizations . The apprenticeship training program was carried out this year with
courses in methods and time measurement, mechanical drawing, and welding, sharing the limelight .
Driving, typing, physical education, and home economics were included in this program . A total number
of eighteen classes took part in this adult education program this being the lar est artici atio ' the

ey, which made our Washington Trip and the printing of our "Embers" possible.
The "Embers" staffs are to be congratulated for the many worried and hurried hours they spent on the
yearbook . We are thankful for the devoted hours and sacrifices Mrs . Pierce has given us to make a suc-
As the memories of scenes here at E .C .S . pass through our minds, we are reminded that our hardest
goal lies before us, as the unfinished masterpiece awaits the artist.

HE Junior Class started off their year with the election of
officers . They were as follows: President, Robert Keheg
Vice President, George Zittelg Secretary and Treasurer, james
Messer. Through excellent class co-operation, they have
carried out many successful activities, such as movies, and
the highlight of the year, 1955, the junior Prom, "Wonder-
land Fantasy The class has participated in all of the ex-
tracurricular activities with as much enthusiasm as has been
shown in their subjects . If the enthusiasm and co -operation
of the class continue, these artists will meet the responsi-
bilities of Weir senior year and later life with the initiative
and spirit which has kept our nation strong. The Juniors are
thankful to Mr. Ball, Mr. Lundberg, and Mr. Lawless for
their advice throughout the year.

HE artists of tomorrow are in the Sophomore Class of
Eden Central School. They have various talents, inter-
ests, and activities--clever artists, fine musicians, future
homemakers, budding craftsmen, potential scientists and
young businessmen. But the Sophomores' interests did not
lie only in their studies. They have also made their marks
in athletics as was seen by the many Sophomore partici-
pants in basketball, baseball, football, cheerleading and
track . 'I'heir Sophomore Hop, "Autumn Silhouette" united
the class in many pleasant hours of preparation. Wherever
there is worthwhile activity, one can find the Sophomores.
The class wish to thank their advisors, Mrs . Brenneman,
Miss Murphy, and Mr. Duffy, the master artists, who
helped them to sketch such a pleasant scene of this year.

men this year. Latin has been introduced for the first
time into the ninth grade program. The boys and girls have
been represented in athletic and music organizations. Class
spirit prompted them to choose the fabulous unicorn as the
class mascot. These unicoms, designed and made by the
students themselves, were wom as the Freshmen insignia.
At the first project of their high school career, the Freshman
dance, each committee readily and eagerly leamed the tech-
niques and arts to organize asuccessful dance. 'I'he success
of the'dance proved their efforts were notin vain. Under the
guidance of Mrs . Conklin, Mr. Christensen, Miss Witzleben,
and Miss Collins, the Freshmen have enjoyed a busy year.

HREE homerooms under the supervision of Mrs . Hannan,
Mrs . Semson, and Mr. Mazuca were used for an unusually
large eighth grade this year. The students of each homeroom
elected their class officers and so prepared themselves as the
graduating class of 1959 by uniting on various appeal drives
and supporting school functions . Their further-enriched school
curriculum has made it easier for the students to decide their
future courses of study. Many of the boys were among the
members of our junior Varsity sports squads, even though they
couldn't participate in inter- school games. The girls were
numerous in their support of the F .H .A. Club. Their main
objective was to seek further changes in the Student Council
Constitution so that more eighth graders could attend senior
high school functions.

Y looking at any striking design or picture, we will find
that it is composed of many small parts carefully fitted to-
gether to form the finished picture. The seventh grade pupils
have entered upon a project which will, under the direction of
Mr. A . Gray, L .Foroscij, M .Dash, E .Col1ard, take them
six years to fashion. English, social studies, music, gym,
homemaking, shop, math, science, and art must all be
completed to produce the beautiful effect of the pattern of life
and education. This work, however, has not ruled out ex-
tracurricular activity for the seventh graders . Band, chorus,
and intramurals were only a few of the many activities in
which they participated . By creating a balance between
studies and activities, they have leamed earlyin life the value
of a well-rounded school program.

HE students in Mr. Griffin's room, 241, have enjoyed an adventurous year in academic and handicraft
work. "Pretend trips" to faraway lands have helped them to better understand the people of those places
In science, the class actually built a fire with flint and stone. Experiences in woodworking, painting, and
paper sculpturing added to their knowledge of art. Each passing day with its new adventures better prepared
them to meet the requirements for a successful life in Junior High School .
RS . GOULD'S class, in Room 242, has carried on many interesting activities during the year. The art
classes have furnished much enjoyment for all, namely, the making of three dimensional pictures,
Thanksgiving faces with paper, and spatter paint Halloween work. Very good work has been done in our reg-
ular class subjects too. Since September, one boy has moved away and a new girl has entered the class.
She was born in Germany, and she has told the group many interesting things about her life in Europe .

NTEREST in Miss Saunder's room, 240, was motivated by correlating our class work and our art projects .
Cartoon drawings was one of the students' favorite mediums . In social studies the pupils have been very
busy leaming about the Ancient World, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa. Responsibilities were sharedby
individuals and groups, thus developing initiative and leadership in the students . Everybody has worked
hard and studied diligently in the hope of graduating in June from the Elementary School into the junior High .
UR year with Mrs. Lemmler, in Room 245, has been an exciting and busy one. We have learned many
more facts about the vast United States and its many possessions . Our visits to nearby plants have
nelped us to better understand the importance of an education and the workings of the intricate machines .
Although our class has lived in an overcrowded room, we have still been able to carry on many projects . Our
dioramas formed an interesting exhibit for our parents to View on Open House Night.

IFTH grade social studies was very intriguing to most of us in Mrs. Wilson's room, 243, because we
leamed more about the history of our country. While studying about the Pilgrims, we presented a play
entitled "jonathan's Thanksgiving" at an assembly for the intermediate grades . We had so much ftuiprac-
ticing that we were sorry when it was over. One of our projects was making envelopes to keep our report
cards clean. Our class has also taken a trip to the Ford Plant to watch cars being assembled.

LL the students have shown an interest this year in "How Things Began." Through books, pictures, and
discus ' h ' ' ' ' '

Y joumeying in our imaginations to cities across the country, we spent many enjoyable hours and increased
our knowledge of the history and geography of our country . Making notebooks on music data helped us un-
derstand our music studies. Our reading activities in Mrs .Hauth's room, 249, have been furthered this year
by much library Workg so we are well prepared to advance in our studies next year. Through our art classes
we have gained a sense of design and an introduction to different mediums .
MERICA and famous men and women who have made our country great have been concentrated on this
year in Miss Wilson's room, 246 . The children enjoyed learning about the colonial and pioneer periods .
Through pencil and crayon illustrations, murals were made on the history of travel, automobiles, and air-
planes. Art projects added spice and color to the year's work. There were correlations with social studies,
and seasonal activities. Daily story periods fostered a love of books and reading.

XPRESSION has been the primary aim in Mrs. Blakely's room. To help us accomplish this aim, we
stressed the language arts . just as art is a means of expression, language is a means of progress . Growth
in personality results when proper conditions are provided for the stimulation of language . Our program in
Room 180 tried to develop skills in the various aspects of expression . Thus, we had an enriched program of
reading, writing, thinking, taking field trips, acting and doing.
ISS BROWN'S room has had a large reading project this year . Incorrelation with reading activities, we
studied such varied topics as the Pilgrims, Washingtorfs Birthday, and the Dutch people, to buildarich
basic reading vocabulary. Along with this, Room 130 leamed multiplication and many of the measures
used every day. Whenever possible, we have tried to correlate our art and music activities, since we know
that art is a way to develop our minds, as well as a means of expression.

UCI-I em hasis was placed upon a more integrated program this year in language arts in Miss Poniatow-
ski's room. This program was designed to fit each child's level of maturity. Through this course of
study and enriching experiences in other subjects, individual needs were more fully met. It was our hope in
h ll. Above all, our
Room 179, to help each child find success in his accomplishments no matter ow sma
goal was to better prepare the children for group living and good citizenship .
E are primarily concerned this year in Mrs. Rothe's room, 102, with enabling each pupil to build the
power to read with adequate understanding and make good use of ideas gained from reading. As art
develops an interest in expression, reading is used to provide a wide variety of worthwhile materials . The
pupil is taught techniques which enable him to identify syllables and use the sounds associated with them.
This provides the child with the skills required for effective study of other school subjects .

OOM 196 has had a very successful year under the direction of Mrs. Karr and Mrs. Forsyth. We have
improved our reading skills and leamed to write our names . We especially enjoyed the units on thelives
of the Indians and the seasons. The completion of the new school especially pleased us because we are one
of the groups who are housed in it. The architecture of the new building is another added attraction of this
year. Altogether we have spent an enjoyable and profitable year in our room.
MPHASIS has been placed on the fine arts this year in Mrs. Holden's class, Room 105 . Many of us are
good readers and read many library books. We also leamed poems and songs, and how to write stories
and letters. At Halloween there was the animation of putting on a play entitled "The Shadow Show At
Christmas we made a book of songs and poems, with original illustrations, for our mothers. We exchanged
gifts and made glittery painted pine cones and pinwheel decorations for our Christmas tree.

such as' group work, social reading, and library book work. Excitement and planning for our part in the
Halloween Assembly program began early in the year. We decided to be ghosts and recited "The Goblin
At Christmas time Mrs . Krempa helped us make decorations for our tree in Room 107 . We have enjoyed art
activities for all the seasons. Our culminating activity for the year was a trip to the zoo.
OOD reading has been stressed in Mrs . Walter's room, and we have worked hard toward higher reading
' ' ' l h k t
goals so that we may be better pupils when we enter the higher levels of learning. Our c ass as ep
busy reading library books to further their experiences needed for reading. Mr. Haug, the grade school art
instructor, helped us make snow pictures with tempera paints and sparkling glitter. Working and playing to-
gether in Room 194 has proved a profitable lesson in citizenship. We expect to take a big trip to climax

HIS year Mrs . jeffe's class in Room 189, studied our country and learned about Mexico, our neighboring
country to the south. The Chrismias season was probably the most joyful time of the whole school year
for us. We enjoyed our beautiful room decorations and especially the lovely art Work and paintings on the
windows and in the halls. We learned many winter safety rules and practices . Our reading activities were
not neglected . We are looking forward to another year of study and pleasure .
EADINESS in Miss McIntyre's room, 131, has been our program for all avenues of learning. Interestwas
first aroused in reading and numbers by the use of charts, pictures, stories and concrete objects, andin
language arts by movies, records and stories . After certain basic skills were acquired, a formal program
was begun . The children were eager to tell of their experiences during our daily "Show and Tell Time ."
Block building, painting, games, puzzles, and playing in our doll corner were part of our daily program.

URING the year Mrs . Morgester's class, in Room 135, has finished several important projects. The
. . . . th
children have helped to keep the room decorated for Christmas and other special holidays, by doing e
decorations and art work themselves. Three times during the year we have a big birthday party with refresh-

ments. By the close of the year every child has received a cake with a candle . An activity we are eager y
anticipating is our trip to a dairy to find out how milk is prepared for us to drink.
HROUGH the happy experiences of Dick, jane, and Sally in our new basic reading series, the childrenin
Mrs . Smith's class, Room 123, are learning to be strong enthusiastic readers . Working together with
our classmates is a very important factor in good school adjustment. We like to think of our class as a big
school family, learning to be thoughtful and considerate. Many experiences, such as trips to the post of-

ITTLE artists in Room 121 carried on an extensive reading program at the beginning of this year . With
the help of Mrs. Vollentine, they read their pre -primers and their first primer . Concerned with the art of
speaking, much emphasis was put on phonics . The group leamed to count and write numbers and to become
familiar with number facts . We kept a record of the days that passed, on a callendar on the board, and each
day wrote a bit of news on the board. Our aquarium consists of fish and several snails .
CTIVITIES in Room 126 centered around the subject of reading this year. It is an exciting experience .
With the help ofMiss Wrench, they leamed to read and to do new things in art. Finding various scien-
tific articles with their classmates had led to an ever-changing science corner. Many unusual items and
specimens have been brought in and interesting experiments watched. The social studies program centered
around four big units: the school, the home and family, community helpers, and holidays .

RS . DAVIDSON'S and Miss Fitzmaurice's kindergarten in Room 197, this year, has undertaken many
activities that have developed the background and interests of the children so they will be prepared for
the increased responsibilities of the higher arts . To accomplish this, we feel the children should have an
abundance of concepts which are real and varied. These concepts are developed through stories and pic-
tures, constructive activities, and field trips, to increase their knowledge of the world around them.
AINTING, clay modeling, and paper sculpture all enriched our kindergarten program . In our room we
built a model "Mayflower" and an Indian tepee . This prompted us to learn the story of the Pilgrims and
of the Indians who formerly inhabited this country. During the Christmas season we visited Santa Claus
in Buffalo . For many of the children this was the first trip to the city. They were curious about everything
from the boats on Lake Erie to riding in an elevator at a department store.

HERE are many arts developed in a child's kindergarten yearg one of the most important of these is the
art of living together harmoniously. These little people here have the opportunity of working and playing
together, sharing old and new experiences, and co-operating with each other , thereby preparing themselves
for future experiences. Since kindergarten means a child'S garden, that goal is what Mrs . Gerrie and Miss
Pack, in Room 198, are trying to attain through the growth of happy well-adjusted children .
TORIES, poems, rhythms, music, and the care of plants and pets were included in our program . We
have taken many excursions which include taking a train ride to Buffalo and seeing Santa Claus . We dec-
orated our room with the appropriate decorations for each holiday . For Christmas, Mother's Day, and Fath-
er's Day, we made useful gifts for our parents. At Christmas time, especially, we learned to share our fun
and work together. These experiences together have taught us to meet any future situations without fear.

tion. Commercial students are required
to learn speed, exactness, and a knowl-
edge of the basic principles of business .
Today there are opporttuiities open to
graduates of the Edenbusiness course who
have proved themselves efficient, capa-
ble, and willing to accept responsibility.
We find them working in the surrounding
areas of Hamburg and Buffalo . Many

we have been aided and guided by these
molders of our literary tastes and COITCCI
English background: Mr. Mazuca, MIS .
Hannan, Miss Murphy, Mr. Lawless, and
Mrs . Pierce . Besides our constant drill in
grammar, spelling, and vocabulary, we
have learned to speak correctly, write flu-
ently, think logically, and to appreciate
the great masterpieces of literature, the
classics . Through this appreciation, we
attain a high standard of cultural living.

ANGUAGES are important, not only in
many professions but also in bringing
about understanding among nations . In
the language courses at Eden Central, the
students, under Miss Collins's guidance,
learn not only French and Latin but also
study the civilizations of France and the
Roman Empire. To give her students a
better glimpse of the foods and cultures
of other lands, Miss Collins has taken
them to dinner at several of the famous
foreign restaurants in Buffalo.

necessary in this age we live in. Mr.
Duffy, through his history courses, shows
his students how the American heritage of
freedom has come about. We al so study
modem-day problems and happenings .

school vocal music groups, the Girls'
Chorus and the Boys' Choir with emphasis
on good musicianship . The choruses, di-
rectedby Mrs . Carpenter and Mrs . Gangi,
produced the Spring Concert. The band
and orchestra, directed by Mr . Downey,
produced the Band Concert and a music

HE Business Department aims to pre-
pare people to be better citizens in a
rapidly changingworld . This challenge is
met through general and specific business
courses such as bookkeeping and busine ss
management which are taught by Mr . Ball,
an ideal business man. Stress is laid on
the three "R's, " as well as accuracy,
neatness, and speed in business prac-
tices and principles. Business students
graduate with an understanding, skill,
and ability to get along well with others
so as to be a credit to themselves and
their parents .

HE Agriculture Department's aim, un-
der the managementof Mr. Munger, is
to develop a student who is acquainted with
the advances in scientific farming. Dur-
ing the past year, classes visited Weck-
erle Dairy and Danahy Packing Company
in Buffalo to study the marketing of farm
produce. The annual trip to Comell
made it possible for the students to see
the educational facilities available in the
field of agriculture. The milk testing and
other similar programs aid the pupil in
producing a higher quality dairy product
on his home farm.

the instruction of Mr . Varco . Along
with the instruction period, in which the
students learn the basis of their subject,
the classes have an additional period for
laboratory work. By working by them-
selves, the students become acquainted
with the practical part of science which
is necessary in college or in jobs relat-
ing to science . Besides being interest-
ing, science is useful in an atomic
world like ours, where it is constantly
at work .

part of our school curriculum. With Mr.
Nelson in charge, each driver education
class is taught not only the essentials of
proper driving, but also that courtesy on
the road is an important qualification for
a good driver. Alternating class periods
and actual driving practice gives each
student ample driving experience and
makes it possible for him to acquire low-

NE of the more complex and useful
arts is that of mathematics. At
Eden, the students are put through rigor
ous training to master the complexities
of algebra, geometry and trigonometry.
This year we were most fortunate in
having Mrs . Brenneman as instructor.
Through these branches of mathematics,
students acquire an abilityto reason in-
telligently, aiding them in the future .
For these reasons, mathematics occu-
pies a well-deserved niche in the
school curriculum .

child care, and first aid. As a means
of furthering their education, the class
went on various field trips, including
one to the canning factory. They have
planned and bought all the food for one
week for a family of four. A new class,

HE innate ability to create exists in
everyoneg but as one grows older, one
begins to feel his limitations and this
ability is smothered. Art classes are an
attempt to revive this ability. Mr. Lund-
berg's art classes have made many new
drawings and paintings this year and per-
formed a service to the school by making
posters for dances, dinners, and parties.
The beautiful Christmas windows were a
credit to the basic art and advanced art
classes, and the lobby, to the eighth
grade classes .
N keepi.ngwith the policy "a sound mind
in a sound body," the Physical Educa-
tion Department has set up a well -balanced
program of sports designed to encourage
physical fitness for all. Tennis, field
hockey, volleyball, and basketball--there
is a sport to interest everyone . In physi-
cal education classes, students practice

struct the students in those sports which
they will enjoy for many years . It is

HE art ofphysical fitness for all is the
aim of the Eden Central Physical Ed-
ucation Department, but we realize that
everyone cannot take part in the regular
students' gym classes. For the benefit
of those students who are unable to par-
ticipate in strenuous activities, a cor-
rectives class has been formed under the
leadership of Mr. Moore . The class mem-
bers perform exercises and those activities
which are suited to their capabilities .

HE Senior Band has always been one of the
V more important organizations at Eden. The
band members, under thedirection of Mr. Dow-
ney, have spent long hours diligently perfecting
the various numbers which they presented before
the student body and the townspeople at their
many concerts and performances throughout the
school year. Their brilliant performances at the
Christmas Concert and at the annual Spring Con-
cert delighted all who attended. Several members
of the band were fortunate enough to be chosen to
represent Eden at the All State Music Festival.
The student body has also greatly appreciated the
entertainment the band has provided for them by
arranging several music assemblies from time to
time during the year. Their fine performaces dur-
ing half time at the home games during football
season demonstrated how much the band actually
does to encourage school spirit among the student

HE band, however, does not exist merely to
provide entertainment for the student body at
assemblies, concerts, and games. The main
purpose of the band is to teach its members the
value of a good musical education, and give a
good basic background in music to those students
who will continue to pursue their studies of music
after they have graduated from Eden Central. Mr.
Downey has spent many hours instructing the band
members in the fundamentals of music. The band
has studied carefully and leamed to perform vari-
ous types of musical compositions, both classical
and semi-classical pieces. To add a little bit of
fun to the band program, the members also studied
several of the more recent popular melodies. Their
diligent hours of preparation paid off for themg for
the members of the Senior Band were able to turn
in a fine performance at the New York State Music
Festival at Fredonia.

GIRL '- umm
GAIN this year, the Girls' Chorus turned in an outstanding record
The girls spent several enjoyable music periods with Mrs. Gangi
singing such melodies as "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" and "April in
Portuga1." Rehearsals for their concerts consumed quite a bit of time,
but it was well worth the effort for the audience enjoyed the girls' per-
formances . The chorus has learned to read three -part music and sev-
eral of the girls had an opportunity to do solo Work. This year the cho
rus attended the New York State Musical Festival at Fredonia.
IXED Chorus, directed by Mrs. Gangi, has provided much enjoy-
ment for the students at Eden . With the addition of a music peri
od, the Mixed Chorus has had more time and a better opportunity to re
hearse the songs they performed at the Christmas Concert and the an-
nual Spring Concert. Besides practicing for these events, they also
sing purely for the joy of singing. Folk songs, semi-classical, and
popular songs are sung with enthusiasm by the members of Mixed Cho
rus at their twice-weekly meetings .

I-IIS year Mrs. Carpenter organized the Boys' Choir, a chorus specif-
ically for the boys in the grade school. The boys met regularly to
smdy the fundamentals of group singing and to perform those songs which
will enrich their musical knowledge and teach them a real enjoyment of
various types of music that they may wish to rmdertake at Eden. The
boys took part in several concerts during the year and turned in admirable
performances . The Boys' Choir is a newly organized group, but it is able
to display an enviable record for this year.
IRLS' Grade Chorus was organized to give the girls in the grades a
chance to participate in a musical activity. The girls met regularly
with Mrs. Carpenter and practiced a variety of music and worked to rnas-
ter part singing. Their efforts were well appreciated by all who heard
them sing at their marry performances throughout the year. These begin-
ning music classes are very necessary and important since it is in these MIS. Carpenter' D.Huck1e
classes that the children's voices are trained for more advanced work in
RU - HE Junior High Chorus belongs to an intermediate music group . It has advanced beyond the Grade Chorus,
but its members are not yet ready for the more difficult music of the Senior High Choruses . These boys
and girls and their director, Mrs. Carpenter, have shown by their brilliant performances at the Christmas and
Spring Concerts that they will take a back seat to no one. Besides hard and faithful practice for their concerts,
the junior Chorus members spent much time learning the basic elements of music . The junior High Chorus de-
serves its reputation as a fine musical group.
INCE there is a high interest in music at Eden this year, Mrs. Gangi selected two groups of girls for ad-
vanced work in music. These groups of nine girls each,comprise the two Triple Trios at Eden. The girls
have done outstanding work in their musical studies at school, singing at the Christmas Concert, Spring Con-
cert, and performing grade five and six music at the Fredonia Music Festival. The Triple Trios have appeared
at the Eastem Star, the Rotary, and other community ftmctions

HE Eden Cennal orchestra continued to advance in the realm of orchestral music . Because of the popular-
ity of the band, the orchestra has had to take a back seat . I.n the past few years, however, there has been
a marked increase in school orchestras . This organization, besides playing at various assemblies during the
year, performed at the Spring Concert and the Music Contest at Fredonia, at which they played very well. We
are very proud of these fine musicians and their conductor, Mr. Downey.
HE purpose of our Training Band is to give the younger students a chance to perform in a musical organiza-
tion. Here they leam rehearsal procedures, group co-operation, and acquire the technique of performing in
an organized musical unit to prepare for Senior Ba.nd. One of their public appearances was a trip with Mr. Dow-
ney, the director, to the Farnham School to play at a grade school assembly . The students in Training Band
are practicing diligently while waiting to move to the Senior Band.

S we look back through the scenes,
we find that there are sixteen of us
who have been together during our thirteen
years of school. We began by learning
our A, B, C's and then ventured into new
problems of Spelling, reading and arith-
metic . There were the usual sieges of
the chicken pox and mumps too . Now
that we have finally reached our climax
as seniors and are looking forward to
graduation, we are starting to sketch in
our future, hoping as all artists do, that
it will be a masterpiece .

have won much praise from the student
body and made them a popular musical
organization at Eden. At pep rallies, the

HE monitor system is operated by the Student Council to bring about order in the halls . Two monitors are
elected by the freshmen through the senior classes. These boys and girls are on duty in the halls between
classes to enforce the hall rules. Those students who are found breaking any of these rules are issued tickets
to appear at Student Court. Regular meetings are held to deal with problems and suggestions for making this
system more efficient in keeping the halls free from confusion.
MPHASIS on student government at Eden has resulted in a Student Council which is continually rowiu in
experience. Student Court, the monitor system, and the Sports Advertising Committee are all responsible
to Student Council. One of the main aims of Student Council was to purchase a sign for the outside of the scho
to publicize the schedule of school events . They accomplished this by sponsoring dances and a variety show.
The council also organized dances after the home basketball games.

TUDENT Court was established to enable students at Eden to learn the proper procedure in a courtroom
and to give them an even greater measure of student government. A judge, prosecuting and defense at
' ' ' ' ' h rt. The ac-
torney, and a jury, chosen from the student body help to provide a realistic attitude in t e cou
cused offenders are allowed to present witnesses on their behalf before the case is decided by the jury.
Those found guilty are assign
ed to detention hall or report to assist certain teachers.
N these days when the danger of an atomic attack is an ever-present possibility, it is essential that every-
one should lcnow the procedure in the event of an attack. Air raid drills are held each year to familiarize the
student body with the rules to be followed in the event of such an attack. Through these drills, students learn
. . . . h. ld
the value of being able to follow directions . At a given signal, they proceed to their assigned posts, s ie
their faces with their arms, and wait for an all- clear signal.

LL the world's a stage, " said Shakespeare. This famous quotation certainly does apply to the Dramatics
Club in our school. Membership in the club is open to students who are aspiring amateur actors. Presi-
dent Dallas Mehs and the club members have spent a truly interesting year, thoroughly enjoying themselves
while learning first-hand information about the technicalities of putting on a successful stage play. This year
the members have concentrated their efforts in producing a hilarious three-act comedy, "Books and Crooks, "
as the annual school play.
The office of Principal Amold Q. Henley of Alexander Hamilton High School becomes a hiding place for two
notorious bank robbers, the "Prof" and his accomplice, Francis. The discovery that Principal Henley and the
"Prof" are exact doubles sets off a hilarious chain of events that keeps everybody in the school thoroughly con-
fused and mystified. Mr. Lewis Fischer, the director, and the cast really brought the play to life and provided
much merriment for the audience by their antics on the stage .

FTER a losing streak that began with a defeat by East Aurora at the season's start, the Eden "Raiders"
regained their composure and ended the season on a happier note. The football team, composed mainly
of veterans and sophomores, was frustrated in its efforts to achieve victory in the early part of the season but
the boys and their coach, Mr. Mazuca, never lost their fight. The boys were amply rewarded for their efforts
when the team defeated Lake Shore 6 to 0 in the closing game of the season. John Dempsey was chosen for
the all league team, and Robert Nehring and Robert Kehe gained honorable mention on the same team. Although
the team will be losing several members this year, among them co-captains james Miller and William Schassar,
there is great promise for a better team next year. Many excellent players will be promoted from the J. V. foot-
ball team to the varsity squad next season.

' EA team"' "Let's go, E.C.S.l" The Eden gymnasium echoes with these and many similar shouts from
t at Eden,
December through early March during basketball season. Since basketball is an important spor
the whole student body is very proud of the boys on the team and takes an active interest in all the games.
The team has earned the respect of everyone, for, although they did not win every game, the boys kept up
their courage and put everything they had into each game.
Although this year's team was lacking in height and experience, the boys possessed a tremendous amount
of fighting spirit. They more than made up for their lack of size by employing a fast breaking offense. De-
spite several defeats in league games in the first half of the season, Coach Nelson and the team members re-
der of the schedule. At the halfway mark, the addition of several promising
mained optimistic for the remain
j.V. players strengthened the team.

AD weather and a full schedule forced the Eden baseball team to look for experience rather than victories .
Though the team did not finish with a good average, the maroon and white will have many veterans retum-
ing to help improve its record next season. After opening the season with two victories over Pine Hill and the
team's arch rival, North Collins, the Eden Raiders suddenly went into a tailspin. Under a grueling schedule
of playing daily, the club, lacking hitting support, was not able to gain another victory until the last game on
their schedule against Springville. The highlight of the season came in the last game on a rain-drenched play
ing field at Springville. Captain Mike Shea hit a bases-loaded home run which enabled the team to gain an 8
to 7 victory over their opponents. The boys aren't discouraged by a poor season but have great hopes for a
much-improved season in the spring.

NE of the more common sights here at Eden every spring is that of the

tice has enabled the team to defeat a great many of their opponents in inter-
l kn the student body at Eden as are some
and their coach, Mr. Hagen, haven't allowed themselves to be discouraged by that fact. They have achieved
the enviable record of having won fourteen Consecutive dual track meets in the last two seasons of their inter-
school track competition . The team members have every reason to believe that their winning streak will be

till another season of track competition. The fine work the boys have one is app e

UR j.V. football team certainly deserves a great deal of credit . Though they didn't Win a game all sea-
son, the boys had the pep and loyalty that kept them fighting every second of each game they played.
Each team member demonstrated the co-operation and good sportsmanship which are so necessary to build a
truly good team . The boys and their coaches, Mr. Gray and Mr. Hagen, are offering no excuses for the poor
record this season, but are putting all their efforts into developing a good winning team for next season .
HIS year the j.V. basketball team has experienced one of the best seasons it has every had. The boys,
coached by Mr. Christensen, fought hard to wir1 each game. The team furnished plenty of thrills in each
game and Won many cheers from the spectators. The fighting spirit, loyalty, and good sportsmanship dis-
played by the boys enabled them to take defeat with good grace and to triumph over their victories . Eden can
certainly be proud of the boys on the j.V. basketball team this year and in the years to come as well .

WO and one half miles of woods, roads, mud, and ever-present weather conditions are onlya few of the
many obstacles the cross country team must endure . Our record-setting team this year coached by Mr.
Pempsell has shown a uemendous amount of school spirit and good sportsmanship . john Ball, a new member
of the team from England, set a new record for the course . The varsity squad promises to be even better next
year for most of the veterans will retum and excellent material will be moving up from the 1.V. squad.
HE j.V. cross country, coached by Mr. Pempsell, is one of the newer additions to Eden's long line of ath-
letic activities . This sport is identical to the varsity cross country except that it allows younger boys to
participate, and it prepares them for the stiff competition of the varsity squad. 1.V. cross country is not very
well known at Eden, but the fine performances given by the boys and their loyalty and school spirit are gaining
recognition, attention, and the place they deserve in Eden's long line of sports .

HIRLING batonsl Sparkling maroon and white uniforms! These are common sights to the spectators at
many of the school sports events when the twirlers are performing with the band . The girls' dazzling
performances are always enthusiastically received with much applause from everyone who views their twirling .
Each week the girls in Twirling Club devote much time to perfecting their various routines . This work is plainly
evident in the high quality of the girls' many performances . The school can certainly be proud of these talented
twirlers and of the enjoyment they have provided for everyone .
VARIED schedule of sports to interest everyone was the goal of the intramural program. Girls' intramu-
rals, under the direction of Miss Palmer and Miss Smith, included field hockey, basketball, and volley-
ball . Bowling was an addition to both the girls' and boys' program this year . Inter-school playdays brought
teams from area schools to compete against our girls . These playdays encouraged the students to engage in
friendly competition. Mr. Hagen and Mr. Moore, the boys' directors, arranged a schedule for the junior and
senior high boys which included football, baseball, and basketball .

" N maroon and white array, don't they look fine!" These words, taken from a school song, might best de-
scribe our cheerleaders as they are seen at the games encouraging the boys by their peppy cheers. The
girls are constantly striving to promote school spirit and good sportsmanship among the student body. Var-
sity Captain Mary Laine Phatiger, 1. V. Captain Pat Colvin, and the other cheerleaders spent much time each
week practicing old routines and developing new ones to be used at the football, basketball, and baseball
games . Their enthusiastic cheering at the pep rallies has boosted school spirit and has helped to give the
team the feeling that the whole school is really behind them.
This year the cheerleaders, with the help of their instructors, Miss Palmer and Miss Smith, attempted
something new by sponsoring a cheerleading clinic at Eden. Cheerleaders from approximately thirty-five
schools in Western New York participated in the clinic to discuss such topics as promoting school spirit,
sportsmanship, and training rules . The clinic was a success, with cheerleaders participating from schools
as far away as Jamestown and Lockport. This clinic demonstrated that the cheerleaders are eager for advice
which will enable them to improve their routines.

MRS. CLEO P. MORGESTER
FTER having given nearly a lifetime of service to the public schools in New York State, Mrs. Cleo P.
Morgester, a first grade teacher at Eden Central School, is retiring as of july 1, 1955.
From 1903 through 1909 Mrs . Morgester taught in the rural schools in the Springville area. From 1922
through 1955 she very capably served as a first grade teacher in the Eden system.
Mrs. Morgester has given most generously and unselfishly of her time and energy to the cause of public
education in America, and to the development of better citizens for these United States. It is this sort of
unfailing service that has been the backbone of the communities of our country since the tum of the century.
The people of the Eden area owe Mrs . Morgester a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid.
Edwin C. Peck
E, the members of the Class of 1955, are deeply grateful for the lessons, friendship and patience that
Mrs. Morgester taught us away back there in the first grade, twelve years ago. Surely no person whom
we shall ever meet in the future can ever surpass the skill of her master artistry in molding the lives of young

With standards high and trueg
Though new fields call me elsewhere,
