' CLASS HISTORY In September, l928 Theresa Arena,Carmelo Calarco, Eleanor Driggs, Margery Porter, June Buck, and Jessie Wigton began the course of study in the first grade of Elba High School. In a few months, Tony Zamblto entered. Marie Coughlin joined the class in fourth gradeg Frank Florentine in fifth grade, and Howard Hart in seventh grade. In January, Harley Dilcher, who was then in the sixth grade, was promoted to the seventh grade and June of that year, entered the eighth grade with our class. Margaret Crane and Mabel Woof entered high school with us in the year 1936. Earl Keller, James Schelber, Edna Lonnen, Charles Lonnen, and Rose Sulimowicz were transferred from other schools. Zygmont Wantuck and Raymond Peters came in our Junior year. In January of our Senior year, Thomas Carrubba Passed enough subjects to make him eligible to become a member of the Senior class, after ' Fifi- ' . FTW? ' f vii- having spent only two and one high school. 'J'.V A I Our class has been the best-financed class in the history, of the school, Our' financial success began when we were in the seventh grade with a very successful bake sale. We continued with sales of candy and baked goods throughout our Freshman year. By the next year, we had enough money to buy our banner. When we were Sophomores, the Class of 1938 handed down to us its candyt business. We took it seriously and received . a regular income for two years before follow- ing the precedent of giving it to our sister class after Easter Vacation. At the beginning of our Senior year, we had over two hundred dollars in our class treasury, out of which we paid for our class r1ngsA x Two memorable events in our Sophomore year were the sliding party and'the Senior Dance at which we served refreshments. The Junior Play, nAl1b1 Blllu, was presented in May, 1939. In June, the class had a picnic at Olcott Beach, and later we served the Alum- ni Banquet. The first event sponsored by the Class of l94O this year was the Harvest Hop held on Oct- ober 25, 1939. NBeyond Reasonn, a mystery farce, was given on November 21. The screen used in the play was presented to the school as a gift. On December ll the Seniors had a theatre party followed by bowling in Albion.. The Juniors and Seniors together sponsored. 9 Leap-Year Dance for the high school students, Cur high school life has been very happy- We hope that all other classes may find the pleasure in fulfilling high school requirements that we have found. GLASS PROPHECY Theresa's been our president And served us to the bestg And in the hopeful future years, We know she'll stand the test. Carmelo truly likes to argue To that we will agree: And maybe a skillful lawyer, Is what he's fated to be. Marie will be a registered nurse And work her way to fame: If she is not a true success, Depression we will blame. Margaret has something in mind As to what she will dog A secretarial course, no doubt, Will carry her right through. Tom's a newcomer in our class Welcomed by us this year, And of his future life and prospects, We know he'll have no fear. Harley a millionaire would be Can such a thing be done? If anyone can possibly do it, He will be the one. Eleanor will be a teacher We see it right from here: She is sure to be a real success, So let's give her a cheer. Frank is a mucker's oldest son Who to the muck may gog And we predict that if he does, He'll work much more. We know. Howard is a popular boy And liked by many girlsg His future is very bright, But shaded with curls. Earl is a willing lad A more willing could ne'er be foundg A successful business man, We hope he will be crowned. Charles Lonnen will not commit himself On what he's going to dog He'll probably work on the Chevrolet Until.Nineteen-Ninety-Two. Edna is an attractive girl She smiles at everyone, ' Her future won't be lonesome, for ' The boys to her will run. What HPeteU will do is hard to tell, But we're sure he'll find a wayg Let's hope he gets an easy job, With a great big roll of pay. Marge is going on to school To learn a lot indeedg We know she 1s progressive, thus She'll always take the lead. June Ruck will be a registered nurse A good one we may say: Her patients she will teach to care For their health in every way.' , James Soheiber likes the land the b So you just wait and seeg We'll be surprised if he is not, A farmer going to be. Dorothy hasn't made up her mind As to what she'd like to dog But she is optimistic still, As others should be, too. Rose's future is a question We know not what she'll dog But she will be industrious, And make you like her, too. Ziggy is handsome, tall and thin. He wants to go on to schoolg We wish him well in every way, Encouragement is our rule. Jessie in the field of research Will find her future full: We bet she'll get a job by push, Instead of one by pull. Mabel will be a dletician I Of great renown we think: And in the chain of happiness, She'll be the strongest link. Tony is studious and strong And chemistry is his goal: Let's prophesy he gets to the top. And not just another knoll.

A doctor of questionable character was supposedly operating a Sanltorlum for the feeble- mlnded, but the unusual part of the story was that the inmates were not feeble-minded, but merely being put out of circulation that their rela - tives would inherit their fortunes . Excitement grew with leaps and bounds when two employees were suddenly re- vealed as detectives. - Then out of thin air the most unusual thrills occurred, each one topped off with a mighty outburst of laughter. Miss England very ably directed the play and the players were assisted by Miss Murphy, the class Advisor, together with the other members of the class.

PETER PAN Daniel O'Connor This story takes place in one of the nicest nurseries in the world. The main characters are: Peter Pan, John Napoleon, Wendy Moira Angela, and Michael, the children of Mr. and Mrs. Darling. Nana, their beloved nurse dog and Liza, the maid. My incident of this story is when Peter urges Wendy and her brothers to go to the Never-Never-Never Land. When the children were put to bed Mr. and Mrs. Darling went to a party. The window was opened by someone and then the lights went on. The children stared at the boy who opened the bureau drawer and pulled out his shadow. Wendy sewed it on for him. His name was Peter Pan. The children became his friend.

The same was true of the fourth grade. Groups were formed and these would exchange rooms for special classes. It was soon discovered that a change had to be made, for the groups were too large. Fourteen pupils from the third grade and ten pupils from the fourth grade formed a new home room--that is us. Being a small group, we have become a harmonious little family. Close friendships have been made. We are able to understand our individual differences .

About a week after school started Paul Gavel was stricken with infantile paralysis. We often wrote letters to cheer him and also other children who were ill. In October, our room took on an Indian atmosphere. We with the kind assistance of Mr. Dash, constructed a Wigwam large enough in which to play. It was with much regret that we had to take it down.

In addition to our regular classes of Reading, Manuscript, Writing, Arithmetic, Spelling, Health, and English, we enjoy our special classes of Music and Gym, once a week, and Art twice a week. In February, some of our boys and girls took part in a play called 'February Daysu, which was given for the P.T.A. on Tuesday, February twenty-seventh. We enjoyed practis- ing for this play with the first grade. ThiB was of value to our boys and girls in learn- ing to work with other groups. x In second grade we try to learn to live with other children by being fair in our work and play, honest, courteous, and kind to others.

They learn to play as well as to work as a group, rather than as an individual. They begin to form habits of fair play, cooperation, good manners, neatness in person as well as in their work and are curious to find out about things. The child of this age gets a great deal of satisfaction if he finds he can make something hlmself,even though the finished product may not look like much to an adult. He has gained not only self sat- lsfactlon but self confidence which every child needs. The jungle gym furnishes enjoyment as well as helping in the developing of muscular control. Music plays an important part in the program of the kindergarten. The children enjoy learning songs and participating in rhythmical movements such as elephant walks, bird flying and horses galloping. The Rhythm Band is another form of enjoyment for the children and it helps in bringing out talent in some children and encouraging rhythmical response in others. The child gets many ideas from his' first year at school which are developed and practiced as he grows. His greatest achievement is in finding himself one of a group and in becoming an active and con- 'genial member of the group. 9 Elba, New York April 7, 19HO Dear Miss England, D . At last I have fulfilled my first am- bltion. I have become a Senior. In a short time now I shall be graduated and go forth into this world of confusion. A high school instructs one in preparing for the world. During our course in English IV I enjoyed best the author of UA Liberal Educationn, Thomas Henry Huxley. I quote him when I say: NThat man, who has been so trained in youth that his body is the ready servant of his will, and does with ease and pleasure all the work that, as a mechanism, it is capable ofg whosetintellect is a clear, cold, logic engine, ready to spin the gos- somers as well as forge the anchors of the mind, whose mind is stored with a knowledge of the great and fundamental truth of Nature and of the laws of her operationsg whose pas- sions are trained to come to heel by a vigor- ous wlllg who has learned to love all beauty, 'to hate all vlleness, and to respect others as himself, has had a liberal educatlon.N Graduation from high school reminds me of a truck that has been driven half way up a steep hill. If you don't keep climbing steadily, you will never reach the top and may go all the way back to the bottom. In a way I shall be very glad to get out into the world and see if I can do my share. I have spent twelve school years, preparing myself for nMother Natureu, and at last, I am, supposedly, ready. I shall soon know if She and I can cooperate in harmony, or if she will get the better of me, or I of Her. Personally, I think school and all the teachers who have instructed me have prepared iQEQVI . -1. , ,V me to work with Her. , Q I - p ' n,', I hate to leave school in a way becaugg some of the best days that I have ever had have been spent inside of its walls. I know that all I can expect from the world is not a living, but a chance to earn one. ' In school I d1dn't have to think about this because I was too busy cramm1ng'5Book Learningu into my head. I know that all that I have learned ln twelve years is but a small fraction of what there is to know. I realize that I can never master all that there is to know, but I shall come as close to this ideal as I possibly can. f At the present time I have not decided what I shall become after I leave high school. I expect to become a mucker although there are things, that, at present, I would rather do. e I I have made many new friends during my four years in high school, both in books and in real life. Among the best ones that I have made in books are Sydney Carton, Ivanhoe, Rustum, and too many others to list their names here.d I have visited many lands and have seen foreign life thru the eyes of many different authors. All in all, I believe that these last four years have been well spent. I am, glad that 1 went thru high school, ana, 'at present, my ambition is to go thru college. Your friend, e Frank Florentine 'UO N .32p THOUGHTS ON LEAVING SCHOeL On commencement night in June the Seniors are the most envied group in high school. -The members of the other classes pray for the day when they will receive diplomas, and their prayers are answered only too soon. I can remember how, through the years, I have watched the classes, and felt that the members of these classes were Wthe luckiest people in the worldn. Now my time has come. I no longer look forward to graduation with great eagerness. Now, I dread the night when I must march through the aisles and onto the stage. I do not want to say farewell to the place that for twelve years has been my home, and to the people who for a long time have been my parents and my brothers and my sisters. The course of our school days has been a long road that we havebtrod together, and soon we shall come to the crossroads and each of us will go in a different direction. Friendships cultivated for twelve years will be broken in a day. Many times during those twelve years, all of us have wished thatl our school days were over, but as we approach the end of our stay in Elba Central, we have a differ- ent thought in our minds. We wish that in- stead of the end this were only the begin- ning of our school life, and that insteadof looking back on the good times we had, we might once more relive what we have so often wished were passed. Anthony Zambito '40 I saw the moon. It was the moon of fall, Rising and rising O'er a beautiful world. It was a world Made beautiful by frost-- Autumn frost.

June Huck '40 'TWAS SOLID GEOMETRY TEST Backward, turn backward, Time, in your flight, And tell me just one thing I studied last night. Now if you do, I'll be very terse. Then, I'll discontinue This boring verse. Zygmont Wantuck 'MO REUNITED uYou men have been ordered to they front immediately. You will start one hour after you have been dismissed, and with steady marching, you should reach the lines in four days. Carry with you only that which is necessary. You will obey the commands of General Lebon, who is to be your leader. That is all. Company dlsmlssedlu The Commander strode back tohlstent, and the line of soldiers broke up, while some of the men ran toward the long line of tents which formed an impressive background and others chatted with their comrades for a few minutes before going to pack their necessary equipment. Jean was one of the latter group, and as he lit a cigarette which he had borrowed from one of his friends, he thought sadly of all that which he had to leave. Yes, he was anxious to be at the front and fight for his country, but while he had been stationed with the other recruits at the camp, he had become acquainted with many people from the nearby village. Interested spectators often came and stared at the soldiers as they went through their many drills, and Jean had made friends with a boy of his own age, who was usually among the on-lockers. His name was Henri, and he and Jean used to stroll through the surrounding woods talking about the war, their loyalty'mJFrance, the future, and other serious topics. Each boy really enjoyed the other's company, and as the days went by, Jean and Henri grew to love each other as 1 gfg:a,55's1r335gf , brothers do. . Each respected his com- pan1on's thoughts, although many friendly arguments arose from their different view-points. M , Now all this must come to' an end. Jean had known that he must leave Henri sometime, but he had tried to delay the parting as long as possible. But the orders had been given and orders are not disobeyed in the army. Jean walked quickly to his tent, packed his belongings, and then hurried to the old oak tree which was the meeting place of the two boys. Henri was there wait- ing, and the look on his face revealed that he knew. There was no need of conversation between the boys: each knew how the other felt. However, they talked of insignificant things, which did not show their true feelings. Finally Jean's time was up, and as he started Slowly to leave, Henri said, NAnd Jean, if ever you hear, or find out anything about- me, remember that I really was and always will be, your best fr1end.' Au-revour. Jean was puzzled by these words, but he nodded his head, his eyes blinded by tears, and ran quickly back to the camp. Ten minutes later the troops were on the way to the front. Jean was very mel- ancholy on the wearisome march, but on the fourth day, he had been' cheered up by the npmarks of his comrades. That night, under cover of darkness, they reached the front, and after a short rest, relieved the men who were guarding the lines. Q Q w w Q i s Days passed. Jean became used to his duty as sentinel, and his eyes and ears soon were accustomed to the shelling and bombing that went on around him. Although he was very busy, and had no time to relax and think, he did not forget Henri. AHe kept being reminded of him, and when he thought of their good times together, a look of sadness came into his eyes, for he had a premonition that if he ever saw Henri again, something tragic would happen. He tried to rid his mind of this idea, but it persisted in haunting him. 5 'I' I' if if The night was cold and dreary, and the front was quiet. Jean seemed to be unusually alert, perhaps because he seemed to sense something in the air. The hours crept slowly by, and just as the grey dawn cast an eerie light over the lines, Jean was startled by a slight rustle which came from a clump of bushes a few yards in front of him. He watched eagerly, and a few seconds later saw a form creep slowly from bush to bush. Jean raised his gun, and aiming steadily at the moving figure, fired. The shape staggered for a minute and then fell to the ground. As a comrade moved to take Jean's place, Jean crept slowly from the trench and crawled on his hands and knees to- ward the prostrate body. The shot had started a bombardment of shells and bombs, and Jean was creeping forward with Death as his companion. He reached the huddled' shape safely, however, and as he rolled the body over, his face became distorted as he stared at the mutilated features of Henri. As he kept gazing, a bomb burst near him, and the guard at Jean's post gasped in horror as he heard a horrible scream, stllled by the falling debris, which covered the two boys, friends forever.

Richard Hill '41 WINTER ROUTINE The eight-thirty-five bell rings just as Howie Hartley and Roy Porter Uskidu into their homeroom. Mr. New gives them a dis- approving glance, and then the room becomes quiet. Toward the end of the five minutes, a person in the hall may see a door open, a hand reach out and put an orange, blue or the Ucolor-of-the-monthn slip in the door. Then the bell rings, and the students straggle out of the rooms to go to their respective classes. Some of the pupils are sent after slips from the office, simply for sliding thru the doorway half a second late. The class begins, only to be interrupted by the students who ride on the busses. They come ln, one by one, rattle papers, look a- round, and then say that they don't know what we are doing. After all ls settled, however, the class goes on smoothly, if you disregard the way Stanley and Dave act. The morning slowly passes and when noon comes, Mr. Vanderhoof finally gives the sig- nal in Study Hall. The causes of teachers' headaches flood out, open their set lockers, Ngrabn their lunches, and make a nbee-line' for the cafeteria. For twenty minutes all is quiet in the upper hall. Then a bell rings, and the fifth-period classes go thru the same routine. Bye this time some of the Uteachers' little chargesu are cluttering up the hall, so Mr. Benton stands by the rail- ing and Nyellsn, NOK, Wigton, either get in the Study Hall, or go to some room and stay therelu Jessie mumbles under her breath, but obeys.

Geometry and English IV are two of the subjects thru which the students struggle. Second period classes are varied, and the Study Hall is quite emp- ty, except for a few students who behave on their honor. At least, they are supposed to do so. The last period is devoted to activi- ties, and the pupils do what' they want co, although the teachers try to make ,them stay where they should be. At three-twenty-five the halls are cluttered again, but ,not for long. As the lingering C72 boys and girls leave, the walls seem to heave a sigh of re- lief, but start to prepare themselves for the rumpus and uproar of the next day. HUNTING As we walk through the fields in the early, beautiful morning with the frost still on the ground and the sun just peeping above the horizon, we wonder if we will have any luck today. We tramp through the wheat stub- ble, listening to the crunching of the small stalks breaking under foot. Our hands be- come cold from holding the hard, cold gun bar- rel.

Cotton is called the king of crops. This cotton-growing section of the South is called the cotton belt. The large farms where cotton is raised are called cotton plantations. The owners of these plantations employ negroes to work for them because they can stand the heat better than the white people. The crop grows very slowly. It tahes six months to grow. The farmers plant the seeds when the danger of grost is past. Then in June, July and August the blossoms begin to come out. The plants are about two or three feet high. From September until December is picking time. Workers go through the rows of cotton about three or four times to pick the cotton. Before they can use the cotton, they must remove the seeds from the fibers. This is done by a machine called a cotton gin. The cotton is pressed into 500 pound bales. .They take the seeds and put them between heavy rollers to press out the oil. The oil 18 used for salad oil, lard and butter. An enemy of the cotton has caused millions of dollars worth of damage. This enemy ls the cotton boll weevil. The cotton is spun into thread, then woven into cloth. Some of the kinds of cot- ton cloth are organdy, cotton crash, voile, print, cotton shantung. Some things made of cotton are stockings, underwear, dresses, sheets and plllowcases. Laura Jean Eggers Grade 5 A TRIP TO MARS Not long ago I made a trip to Mars with the new high-powered rocket ship which I had made in my spare time. I set out with light- ning speed, headed in the direction of the planet. I took my lunch along and, on the way, ate it. Through my telescope I could see my ship, drawing closer and closer to the planet, until finally I came in contact with the lighter air nearer the planet and could not control the ship. I hit with a resounding crash. I crawled out, badly shaken up but not hurt. The surface of Mars was made up of im- pervium which cracked my ship badly. I found nothing to eat on the planet and by night had become very hungry. The next day, I hunted over the wreckage 'for my heat ray gun, which I could use in making another ship. With my gun I melted some of the metal, covering the planet, and made myself another ship. The volcanoes on Mars erupted and gave off gas which would drive my new ship back to Earth. I canned all the gas which the ship would hold and set out for Earth. I had a large supply of gas and used only very little of it because it was so powerful and I was going with the wind. When I landed, I saved the surplus gas and later sold it for a fortune. Now, with the money I made with the gas, I am constructing another ship. John Gillard '42 MY PRINTING PRESS One day whenxl was out of a job, I was struck with the idea of starting a weekly newspaper for Elba. I purchased myself a printing press on the installment p1an.After two months I turned out the first and last edition. It was Ha flopn because the news was six weeks old and because I cannot write any- way. I soon.found'myself in debt and owing back payments on the pressg so I decided to make it pay for itself. 1 I started making money. As I was a be- ginner, I commenced at the bottom and made one dollar bills. I became very good at this art and soon had full possession of my print-p ing press and money besides. I found it much easier to live on home-made money. Soon the country was flooded with my ones, fives, tens and twenties. The T-men began to arrest the members of the Treasury Department for making counterfeit bills. My bills were so perfect that they devaluated the regular United States currency. By the time I was discovered, it was too lateg so all they could do was make me Secre- tary of the Treasury. I liked the old print- ing press so much that I kept it and turned my cellar into a mint. I put my picture on every bill and I am now known as the founder of the United States currency system. .Ralph Gillard '42 NGONE WITH THE WINDU Here is a movie you'll all want to see, It's stupenduous, colossal and grandg You'll never regret that you went, I know It's renowned throughout all the land.

The monthly meetings are presided over by: President ------- Dorothy George Vice-President--Ethel Woof Secretary ------- Evangeline Millis Treasurer ------- Margaret Crane At present the club is working on a constitution, which, it ls hoped, will make the organization even more efficient. The Library Club is very active. It has had many parties at the homes of the girls and the school librarian, Mrs. Kirsch. This year about five hundred Vbooks were lent to our school from the traveling library. The club members had to make two lists of all the books that came in for a record. It is then the girls' responsibility to keep track of these books for the re- mainder of the school year and to return all of them to the traveling library in good condition. The Library Club gives the girls ex- cellent tralning and teaches them to be exact and efficient. ' After the girls have completed two years of work, they are awarded with a pin at graduation.

New, Agriculture Instructor. Early in the school year officers were elected as follows: President, Howard Bate- mang Vice-President, Donald L. Coughling Secretary, Earl Dorman, Treasurer, David Boyce: Reporter, Stanley Andrews. The boys have been very busy partici- pating in various Judging contests which have been held in different places. Last summer they won thirty-two dollars at the Genesee County Fair and several ribbons, a dairy calf and nine bushels of certified seed potatoes in athletic contests at the Winter Rally. At the Empire State Potato Show the boys won first in grading, Judging and identifi- cation of potato defects. At Cornell, Elba placed fifteenth in potato judging and was above average in the other contests. During the year many field trips were enjoyed, some to the boys' farms and others to cold storages and lecture halls. One of the important parts of the ag- ricultural course is the boy's project which he manages and carries on himself. The labor income from the boys' projects this year was over one thousand dollars. The F. F. A. boys will have their annual Father and Son Banquet in April. We are all looking forward to a bigger and stronger Elba Chapter of the Future Farmers next year.

The second appearance was at the Senior Play. This year the band led the student body and friends in a parade prior to our first bas- ketball game, and it has been boosting our team by playing at home games throughout the season. Other apperances of the band have been at a P.T.A. meeting, the boys' and girls speaking contests, the Junior play, Apple Blossom Festival, and Memorial Day Parade. We are looking foward to having a part in the Commencement program. We have a total of thirty-seven members. The new instrumentation, which we have, adds to the tone and quality of our band. ' QifWikiliiiihwhifiiiiwdiih The Glee Club has had a very good at- tendance this year. The boys and girls enjoy themselves, singing popular and sem1-class1c- al music. We lost many members last year, but when the students heard how interesting our meetings are, many more came in to sing. We now have about thirty members in our club. WNNWWWWMWWWNNNW The boys and girls of the band and or- chestra were invited to make up 5 jazz band, which is now called the NSwingstersn. We met informally Wednesday nights after school. We have played for the dances in the gymnasium at noon. We wish to extend our thanks to Mr.Urion for devoting his time to the Jazz band, and for buying the necessary music. We expect further appearances of the band. First Row: Mrs. Peters, Mrs. Hare, Miss Calarco, Mrs. Spaulding, Mrs. Schogoleff Second Row: J. Neth, B. Forsyth, K. Motz, B. Berg, M. Coughlin, V.

During the summer the girls studied needlecraft and, at the F1remen's concerts, sold the pot holders, towels, and aprons that they had made. After studying dramatics last fall, they rehearsed a play that was presented at the January meeting of the P. T. A. Each scout has learned how to entertain gracefully and has had practical experience by being ln complete charge of a monthly party. Most of the money for the summer camping trip has been raised by checking coats at the F1remen's dances.

A show was held by the Elba Fire Dept. in which Mr. Russell, the magician, Save an act. The Fire Dept. was most generous and turned the proceeds over to the troop. The proceeds from all these activities go into the fund for camp. Camp! Every boy in the troop is waiting anxiously for summer vacation so that they can attend camp. Plans are being made at each meeting for our trip this summer. Last Year 22 boys spent a very pleasing time at Eighth Lake in the Adirondacks. Two new patrols have been organized during the past year. These are the Panther and Tiger patrols. The addition of these patrols has increased the size of the troop considerably. We also have three new members who were not Scouts when our troop picture was taken This year the troop has undertaken the building of a stone fireplace back of the school in the grove. In Jan, we attended a Rally in Corfu. All the troops in the council were present and gave demonstrations in the various branches of Scouting. Troop I7 gave an exhi- bition in first a1d,which included artificial respiration, bandaging and splint work. s sf f 5 E E wvzergrrvfw- an 'wcg ,L 4 - First Row: Z.Wantuck, H.Hart, D,Coughl1n, A.Zamb1to, C.Foster T A Second Row: H.Hartley, J.Zambito, H.Bateman, A.Snell, H.D1lcher, S.Andrews, Coach Spaulding Q V!-Xl2flTY f5AfKJETBALl. 0 VARSITY Coach--Mr. Spaulding Captain--Don Coughlln Manager--Stanley Andrews Ass't.

Since we cannot discuss this year's team, let us review the teams of the past few years. Three years ago the Elba team won the league championship and represented Genesee County in the sectionals. Two years ago, Mr. Benton's last year as coach, the Elba team won the league championship and defeated three teams in the sectionals to become the B Class championship team of Section V. Last year's, team, with Mr. Spaulding as coach was greatly handicapped by the loss of five players from the team of the previous ,year. In spite of this handicap, they won the league and became the first team to defend its title in the history of the Section V Baseball Tournament. The team played hard but lost the game after playing two extra innings. This yearls team with only three left from last year's Championship team will Nhave to work hard to keep in step with the teams of the past three years but we feel that Coach Spaulding will give us a team that Elba Central will be proud to claim. 5 Q v"4 , V z, f? 4 , f . if - LM First Row: L.Bridge, D.Test, W.Raymond Second Row: B.Fraser, D.Day, B.Dorf 0 Cl-HEFQ, l-41AD4PQf 0 Cheer, cheer, for old Elba High, We'l1 win this game tonight or dieg Tip that ball to Little Don, lf he doesn't make it, pass it on.
