V In the curriculum of Physical Education, there are teams for the various sports. The different classes and clubs, therefore, can be compared to these teams. Thus, the following pages have been arranged in order to resemble a basketball, football, or baseball team, with the teachers as coaches, the students as players, and the main events of the year as the schedule. To have perfect physical and mental fitness should be vitally important to every one. Any graduate leaving high school realizes that to have a healthy body and mind is of great advan- tage in gaining desirable jobs, and in being able to compete against others for higher positions. Therefore, it is now more than fitting that the theme of this book be dedicated to Physical Education, especially since We are engaged in a great War in which being physically fit is most important.

And they never knew what it was to fear anything bigger than a history test, never stormed any objective but the Home Economics Department on pastry day, never sustained any wounds save those from football spikes or Mary's hat-pin, seldom aimed at anything but the Frog Bottle in the Chem Lab and usually missed that. Yet Uncle Sam has seen fit to enlarge on these boyhood endeavors: teaching them how to storm a beach, how to treat their wounds with sulfa and penicillin, how to kill. God grant the cause worthy of the transformation, God grant not the concentration of their dreams into single golden stars to burn themselves out in this eleventh hour, but instead the expansion of their dreams on the blue hori- zon that heralds tomorrow. ' DR. GERALD A. WILBER OR the past fifteen years, Dr. Wilber has been our super- vising principal. There is no uncertainty whatsoever that he has held his position with high esteem and dili- gence. The students of Falconer High School and also those who have been previously graduated owe much to him. We have been very appreciative of his indefatigable spirit in furthering our interests, his genial personality and above all his willingness to assist us in solving our problems in work- ing toward our ultimate goal-graduation. Through his efforts and ability, the school has made wonderful progress in many ways. A great deal of credit is due him for the high standard the school now has. lt is with sincere regret that We learned of your resigna- tion as principal, Dr. Wilber, The students of Falconer High School will miss you greatly and will be thinking of you often in the future. We extend our deepest wishes for hap- piness in any and all of your future plans. -lgl KATE E. DAVIS OR the past twenty-five years, Mrs. Davis, through diligence and hard work, has done a great deal in improving the library and literature department of Falconer High School. Much of the credit is justly due her for our well--developed library system. Previous to her position in the school, Mrs. Davis managed the affairs of the first public library in Fal- coner which was at her own home. Later this library was moved to the Community Building where it has since been increased greatly. Being a member of the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle, Mrs. Davis has steadily broadened her literary knowledge, using this knowledge to extend the progress of the school library. Then, too, many of her summer vacations have been spent at Chicago, studying for further im- provement and advancement along this line. We were filled with regret upon learning of your departure, Mrs. Davis, and we assure you that you will long be remembered by the many students of Falconer High for your ability and willingness to co- operate fully with both students and faculty. 1Ql MARY CRITOPH EING a person with outstanding artistic ability, Mrs. Critoph has been a decided asset to our school as head of the Art Department for the past nineteen years, During these years, she has willingly rendered her assistance to the Corridor Staff by contributing her ingenious ideas to the art section. One can readily see that she has made great achievements in the field of art by noting the following. Her art class has designed booths for the Eastern Ari Conference at Philadelphia and New York City. She has put on exhibits at the Iunior High School Convention in Washington, D. C., the Northern Zone Teachers Meeting Convention, Chautauqua County Fair where her display received first awards and many other in- dividual prizes were awarded to the students. One of her exhibits was sent to Cleveland, to the National Teachers Association Convention, and some exhibits have circulated through the East, South and California. From a personal viewpoint, Mrs. Critoph has shown unusual ability in her own personal paintings, some of which were displayed at the Albright Art Gallery of Buffalo, in the Western New York State Artists' Exhibit. Each time her work was submitted, it was accepted by the jury as outstanding, Mrs. Critoph has had the opportunity of studying at the International Summer School of Art and work- ing with internationally famous commercial artists such as Ioseph Bender and Emmy Zweybruck. It is with a great deal of regret that we learned of your decision to leave the faculty, Mrs, Critoph, May you be happy in any andlall of your future plansl Ccominued on Page 14-J 6 PERPETUAL INTEREST OF PRINCIPAL IN F. H. S. Falconer, New York Dear Falconer Students, Past and Present: April 10, 1945 HIS message to you bids well to be a final one from me in the official capacity of your principal. It is always difficult to express one's feelings by little black and white marks on paper but it seems to be the custom to do so. The period from 1930 through 1945 has been a decade and a half in which the Falconer schools have gone through the period of growing up and have now reached their majority. After the opening of the new high school in 1930 there was quite a lot of discussion about dropping athletics particularly foot- ball. That hardly seems possible now but it was seriously considered in those days. In music, the band, choir and orchestra were just starting and having a rather rugged time getting instruments and uniforms. Shop and home economics were infants and just be- ginning to attract students to their courses. During the years we have had excellent teachers in Falconer. The success of the schools has been largely tied up with the successful efforts of this staff. These teachers have been your friends and have given of their best efforts in an attempt to develop the best possible type of citizenship in you boys and girls. That they have been successful, is evident by the long list of scholarship winners, athletic team winners, music group winners and last but not least, the unsullied records of all of our young men and women in the war. We are extremely proud of the achievements of all these young enlisted men and officers and, regardless of rank, everyone has done his or her part in the best possible way. All of these good things have been accomplished by perfect cooperation between the administrative officers of your schools, the board of education, the faculty and you students. If any one of these groups had been recalcitrant, it would have shown up by lowered standards somewhere along the line. This same team work must prevail in the future. In the very near future you young folks will be the leaders in Falconer and it will be your civic duty to see that the same relationship continues to exist in your schools then. Your new principal will do a good job. I have every confidence in Mr. Fenner and I assure you that he is the man for this place. He knows all of your faults and foibles and will start out with a wide knowledge of local conditions. Perhaps he, too, will perpetuate the type of general school organization under which you have lived all your school lives. There will be many changes, of course, but I am sure that Mr. Fenner is imbued with the philosophy of good school administration. His most difficult task will be the organization of a new staff of teachers next September to take over the duties relinquished by those leaving this Iune. You students can help him here and remember that all of these things will be new to him and to your new teachers. So be patient and the details will work out just fine. For Mrs. Wilber and me a new type of life looms ahead. We are looking forward to it with keen interest since we feel that the challenge it offers will add the spice and adven- ture which all of us seek. We know that you young folks will carry on, and do so in the best possible way. We shall return to visit you and shall be pleased by your successes and rejoice with you in your conquests. The standards of the schools are high but they can always be improved upon. There is always room for change and opportunity for revising and refining of our ways of life. Falconer schools have come of age and we shall look forward to their doing great things in the days of peace ahead. May the best of all good things be ever yoursl In classroom, study, field and track, may you excell You have definite civic and social responsibilities. Be sure to accept theml May God bless your every effort both as a school and as individuals! Your friend, 190. I -v I QA, E6Zl:C6lil:0IfL O Coach Maben C. Cameron Who will never be forgotten by the Class of l945 as a sincere teacher and a loyal friend. In the year of l936, When "Cam" first entered upon his teaching career in Falconer a majority of the Class of '45 Was attending fourth grade. Thus, for eight years, Coach Cameron faithfully taught us good sportsmanship and kept us physically fit. It was "Cam" Who trained the undefeated football team of 1944, "Cam" Who taught us to be good losers when our basket- ball team lost the Championship by a few points. The Class of '45 thinks of you often, "Cam", and Wishes you all the luck in the World. ' 8 JPL il!J!9'C6Cl:dtl.0lfl 0 MARY IANE BUSCH NEWCOMER, both in Falconer High and in the field of teaching, Miss Busch has done much toward the furthering of our Physical Educa- tion Program. Her cooperative spirit and democratic ideas are disclosed in her willingness to talk things over. With her patient attitude, Miss Busch has carried out a schedule of events, bringing all the students into participation, making sure that they understood fully the rules and practices of the game. We, of the Corridor Staff, appreciate very much, the cooperation and help that Miss Busch has given us in working out the theme of this book. In her original ideas, which were unseliishly shared with us, we have found many improvements and additions to our own. Q,, CGACI-I BRADLEY BISHOP N his own silent way, Brad carried on where Cam left off, taking the foot- ball team through, undefeated, and successfully training our basketball and baseball teams. Although this has been his first year at Falconer, Coach Brad has made many friends among the students and faculty. ln his practice of good sports- manship, Brad has been an example in teaching the students that to be good sports, regardless of the circumstances, is most important. Since Coach specializes in Physical Education, he has been able to give us a great deal of aid in the make-up and planning of this year's book. There- fore, we wish to take this opportunity to show our appreciation for his wil- lingness to help. 9 THE VALUE OF GOOD HEALTH AVING had a thorough physical and mental education, these four young men reveal in their countenances, sucf cessl The sailor willingly serving his country, the businessman, making pos- sible the efficient functioning of large concerns, the doctor, offering his services to people in need, and lastly, the laborer, perhaps the most common, who regard' less of his overalls and shovel, is over to stand among the professional men, all of these are confident that their previous training, both physically and mentally, has prepared them to meet, and over- come the many hardships of life. THE RESULTS OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION HESE two young men are products of a good Physical Education. fn acquiring their physical fitness, they have gained self-control and mental alertness with the cofordination of their muscles and minds. Therefore with fully developed bodies and minds, they are able to enter the future, fear- less, and with confidence of being able to stand eaual with their fellow men. WHAT LIES IN THE FUTURE? VERY graduate in the world has the future ahead, and inust choose his or her profession. Through Physi- cal Education, these girls have learned poise, which will enable thern to face the future with a happy outlook. Their bodies and iriinds are trained so that decisions will be rnade quickly and hardships will be borne with grace and fortitude, ,'! A SUCCESSFUL FUTURE N a glimpse of the future we are able to observe success in these four differf ent professions due to the inental and physical education received in school. The Nurse, who spends rnost of her time helping other people, the housewife, who is contented with fulfilling the duties of a home-maker, the business woman, who is able to carry on business transactions while at the same tirne possesses poise, and eauanirnity, and lastly, the WAVE, who serves her country all are physi cally fit because of their training in High School. PHYSICAL EDUCATION HE value of physical education does not lie in a pair of satiny blue and gold trunks, an "F" or a banner, it lies in the honest sweat beading Frank Gattos brow after that Fal- coner Football feud among the "Seven Hills", in a student ability to add "congratulations" to "you won", in the combination of youthful- ness and poise. lncidentally of interest is the declaration of a seventh grader who experi- encing gym for the first time this year declares, "I like it because it exercises my bones." A girl in the same grade expresses it more form- ally, Hlt gives me confidence and an urge for the great outdoors." Our 'told timer", Ioe De Marco points out that, "The physical fitness program has en- abled me to prepare myself for the enjoyment of competitive sports after l leave school and has fitted me for entrance into the service, if necessary" and Marge Kennedy advocates it because "lt builds you up for future work- gives you pride in your own accomplish- ments." Dr. Wilber supplies that missing link between gymnastics and the sixteen credits- or should we say the relationship of the physi- cal program to the academic courses by stat- ing: "Physical education has a primary func- tion of preparing young men and women for an active and healthy life after leaving school." However, it has another very definite effect on other aspects of school life beside that of building strong, healthy bodies. This is the function of the art of the habit of obeying di- rections and doing so alertly and without argu- mentative discussion. One of the best things which have come out of this war is the readjustment of youth toward life and its demands for obeying directions. One Cannot do what he or she wishes in this life of ours, particularly if there is some inter- ference with the lives of others. Therefore, it is a prime function of physical education to adjust young people to the ideas of "team work" and working together, not for personal glory or grand stand play, but rather for the team and the school. We might add to this notion the relaxation aspects of physical education and point out how gross bodily exercises relieve the tedium of mental strain and cramped muscles. We might also add that there is no greater "level- ing influencef' in our high schools than the athletic teams, either varsity or intramural. Everyone stands on his or her own merit and not on family or social position. "lf you are good you make the team, if not you sit on the bench ."' As we take stock of the benefits from physi- cal education, we take pride in the program which brought them about. With new instrucf tors come novel ideas andefjust in case you mistook all that hopping and jumping for Leap Frog every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, "hear ye": those were Rhythmic movements. The boys werent exactly playing Tap the lce- Box either, that was boxing. Both boy and girl schedules Urunneth over" with stunts, football, basketball, softball, volley ball, soccer, drill, exercises, dancing and track. Surely good health and posture will follow them all the days of their life and they'll dwell in the heights of clean living forever. ELSIE A.. POTTER GREAT faculty addition to F. H. S. during the past five years has been our cheerful, capable, friendly Miss Potter. We who have been her students can truthfully say that we have benefitted a great deal by her style of teaching, for she has developed our interest in world affairs and she has also taught us to "be specific". Knowing Miss Potter as we do, we can say that she has cheerfully undertaken the responsibilities as adviser of the Mi-Y. A great deal of credit for its success during the past few years is due her. Also worthy of recognition is her advisership to the Senior Class and Honor Society to which she has rendered her valuable service. Of particular significance during the past two years in F. H. S. has been the Bond Drive that has been administered under the able leadership of Miss Potter. She has worked diligently and with an indefatigable spirit which has resulted in our eligibility to fly the minute-man flag. We, your friends, will cherish our many happy days spent with you and wish you happiness in your new position, Miss Potter. la-...- ADAH P. REDFIELD OR the majority of teachers who are leaving, we can tack a list of acknowledgments on to our goodbyes-specific ways that they have helped us-but Mrs. Redfield is dif- ferent. You can't lay your finger on appreciation of beauty, the fire in an orator's eye, or the thrill of a Senior Play. You can't say, "Thank you," for the taste of finer things of life which her presence here has contributed. ln two years she has won a spot in the student heart! Any member of the Falcon Staff would describe her as the most consid- erate person they have ever met. Shall we wish you success, Mrs. Redfield? That's a cold wordl How about luck? That's too vague. Let's wish you happinessp that covers everything. lQi MARY PHYLLIS SOMMERHOF AILING from Erie, Miss Sommerhof, who seems to be quiet and shy, is one of our ' most likable and efficient teachers. Her personality is one which cannot readily be forgotten along with her cheery smile. We all Wish you, Miss Sommerhof, the best of luck in your future plans. -ig-.i RUTH SMITH LL of us are sorry to see Mrs. Smith leave F. H. S. She has taught several years in the North Side, being principal for a year and a half. She plans to return to that position again next year. Our best Wishes, Mrs. Smith. 14 1 X.. 1 'th COACHES O team can gain success without the aid of cooperative ore. it may be con- coaches.

HE organization known as "The Falconer High School Student Association" is the stud- ent governing body. The general purposes of this organization are: to unify all student organizations under one general control, to aid in the internal administration of the school, to foster sentiments of law and orderg to promote the general activities of the school, to develop in the student a growing appreciation of membership in a democracy by pro- viding the educative responsibilities of, and privileges of participating in, such a democracy in the school, and lastly, to promote in all Ways the best interests of the school. The Student Council has the power to: make and enforce any rules necessary for the betterment of the school, its life, and interests, grant charters to clubs and organizationsp have final decision in matters concerning the extra-curricular activities of the school, recom- mend the appointment of necessary committees, investigate and report on matters referred to it by faculty or administrative officers of the school, and have charge of all the financial matters pertaining to extra-curricular activities. Perhaps you would like to know exactly what goes on at a Student Council meeting. First of all our president, Dick Nunn, calls the meeting to order. He then asks Phyllis Whattler, secretary, to take roll and to read the minutes of the previous meeting, After this is done, President Nunn, asks for any old business that needs further discussion. Every- one takes part in the discussion and gives further ideas concerning the matter being dis- cussed. New business that might have come up during the week is also discussed and if necessary voted on. When the business of the school has been taken care of, some one makes a motion that we adjourn at that timeg if the motion is seconded, we close the meet- iilg. The Student Council meets regularly every Tuesday morning first period, unless previ- ous announcement has been made. 18 TEAMS ITH our victorious goal of graduation now in sight, we varsity playing Seniors can well appreciate the five years of train- ing which we have undergone in preparation for this main event.

We all agree with this especially when we think of work OJ. ln our freshman year, we remember doing about the usual things. To begin with, we elected officers: President-Harold Caswell, Vice-President- Gerald Stimson, Secretary-Edwin Naslund, Treasurer-Ioyce Hine. We held the skating party at the usual place-Celoron Park, just average "school kids." 42-43 Our "soph" year started off with a bang and we were all very much determined to make good use of our valuable time. Ronald LeRoy was elected President, with Delores Kolstee, Vice-President and Helen Swanson, Secretary-Treasurer. Square-dancing had become the fad and our dances and skating parties seemed to have been enjoyed by all even though there was an inadequate supply of males. However, we know now that we gained much knowledge by experience which helped us to more ably play our roles as 43-44 Becoming Iuniors, we felt rather prominent. Here was the year our headaches began. To start our job well, we elected Dick Nunn, President, Ioyce Hine, Vice-President, Gene Bloomquist, Secretary, Dorothy Forbes, Treasurer. We were happy to find that so many fellows were learning the art of "cutting a rug." We appreciated the fact that all the kids were supporting our class by attending our dances, theatre and skating parties. Then on a beautiful night in Iune, the date of that long-awaited Iunior-Senior Prom arrived. We enjoyed a chicken dinner and afterwards, we danced to the irresistible music of Pat Nor- man. The girls made their appearance in lovely gowns and the boys looked sharp in sport jackets with light pants. lt seemed like a dream to think that by the next year we would 44-45 How could one help noticing those boys and girls strutting around with brilliant faces and looking so important? Of course they were no other than our intelligent, indispens- able seniors. We used very good judgment in our selection of officers. Our capable Maur- ice Phillips held the office of President: Delores Kolstee, Vice-President: Patsy Nelson, Sec-- retaryg and Ioe DeMarco, Treasurer. The majority of Seniors were employed part time or on weekends. They proved to be efficient in lessening the acute labor shortage. Then on a cold night in December, the first, the Senior Plays were presented to a capacity crowd, The plays were entitled, "Pink for Proposals" and "The Brave Shall Serve." Due credit is attributed to Mrs. Redfield, director, the superb casts, and the committees for the success of the play. We appreciated the "play supper" treat given to us by the advisors and play director. Uncle Sam seemed to have his eyes cast on the "men" of the class. Frank Gatto, Gerald Stimson, and Stuart Barnes left to join the Armed Forces. We again attended the lunior-Senior Prom as guests, rather than hosts. The Seniors say "Au Revoir" and the best of luck to all. Iuniors. be Seniors.

The Octette has sung on numerous occasions for the school and also for out- side organizations. During April the Choir is putting on a radio show with Louie Adler and "Chinks" Lombardo as toastmasters. ln it will be featured such numbers as solo dances and vocal solos. The "Stardusters" will furnish popular music, Under the direction of Mis.

Donald Anderson now plays the alto-sax and Robert Trummer, who was the leader has left. Vincent Lombardo now wields the baton, lt is one of the most popular organizations in the school and has a promising future. 44 THE MAIORETTES AYBE you've noticed an increase in the number of baton twirlers this year-oh, there have been four new ones added. They are Donna Peterson, Lois Latona, Ienny Fonti, and Ioyce Morley. They were chosen from a group of about 12 prospective candidates. Both old and new ones twirled at the lamestown game, and Band Concert, and for various other occasions. The four new ones have snappy looking uniforms which are blue taffeta jumpers with white blouses. The old taithluls, Barb, Lola, and Marilyn, also have new outfits. Theirs are blue velveteen trimmed with gold sequins. All in all they are really an important port of our Alma Mater. Second How-I. Fonti, I. Morley, L. Latona, D. Peterson. First Row-M. Ecklund, B.

Miss Busch ECAUSE it is a fast, clean game which requires thought behind every play, basketball is thoroughly enjoyed by all members of F, H. S. The "Falcons" and the "Falcon Yankees" of the Senior and Iunior High respectively, surpassed all others in a fair and competitive manner. S1 TI-IE GIRLS' VOLLEYBALL IRLS' intramural tournaments are played annually ciuthough this year, unlike previ- ous years, the girls chose their own captains and selected their own teams and names. Many times we have heard over the address system announcements of games between the "Falcons" and the "Flying Eagles", or maybe the "He1lcats" and the "Spitlires". During the tall and winter, Soccer and Basketball were played respectively with Volleyball coming in the spring. A very successful and enjoyable year was ended with the favorite sport of Softball. dl S2 SCHEDULE OF EVENTS WITH COMPLIIVIENTS OF F. H. S.

"Where Good Fumiturc' Is Noi EXIJC'IlSi1.!l',, FIELD 8: WRIGHT CO. 100-108 MAIN ST. IAMESTOWN, N. Y. 56 LIFE IN F. H. S. ALCONER High is not a schoolg it is a home. Twenty-three parents serve seven meals a day and no use asking them, "what's cookinl" either! Yes sir, twenty-three and 500 students-twenty-one and seventeen twenty-thirds off-springs apiece. Hmm, now I know why they're so many half-witsl Getting back to the food, it is served buffet style in 25, 27, 22, 26 and various other rooms whereupon, it is carried to 24's large dining-tables. As expected in such large families, survival of the fittest reigns. Some severe cases of "in- detention" and "collar-burn" have been developed, but no fatalities reported as yet. More- over, those robust individuals with the cast iron stomachs leave the dining room satisfied and "rarin' to go." Architecture suffered a set-back during that period around 1930 and engineers forgot to remember the bedrooms for F.H.S,, but did that trouble our resourceful family? Quicker than Dick Nunn could say, "Ioyce Hine", they converted 23 into an air conditioned slumber- center complete-with chaperones who switch every hour on the hour to prevent monotony. Moreover, since all work and no play makes for bad boys and girls, we dedicated a portion of our house for a recreation room where gay young things may flit and fling to fancy-chinning bars to keep their "chins up" and exercise to keep everything else down. Due to popular request, no peering pioneers glare down on us from the walls. But so revered are they that we keep their very names under glass by the great front door. By the way there seems to be about the place where brotherly love may appear too potent to some. If so, check it to the friendly atmosphere, or "As You Like It". We like it because F.H.S. is not a school: it is a home. Compliments PEARL CITY PAINT 81 GLASS CO., INC.

N. Y. I0 "BOOST" O you students of Falconer High recall that during the first part of the school year, a certain group of students were doing their best to obtain some place in which we could have a recreation center? Well, you all should, and now that we do have it, how about a little inside information on it. To begin with, our rec center, better known as the "Roost", is located in the large hall on the second floor of the Community Building. In order to get it well organized, the student body elected Ioe Demarco as chairman with Eddie Naslund and "Chinks" Lombardo as co-chairmen. Through the cooperation and aid of the Rotary Club we now have a Iuke Box, refreshment stand with a painted blue and gold FHS on it, ping-pong table, card games, and a coke container. The "Roost" is open on Friday and Saturday nights and also when there are games. Now, as long as we have told you about its organization and the facilities we have, how about being little mice with the Corridor Staff, and peek in on an eventful, hilarious, evening's program. First, as we enter this great hall of music and fun, we hear none other than the "Stardusters" playing their favorite rendition of "Boogie Woogie". Good old FHS certainly does have more than its share of jitterbugs, doesn't it? By the looks of the couples dancing, one might get the impression that there is a man shortage. But that's not true-for our able-bodied men just haven't got on to the knack of "jitterbugging". It's not that they couldn't if they would try, but they have trouble keeping up with the music, Notice though, there are some fellows over in the farther corner who are trying their best to catch on. Good Luck! ls that food we smell, or are our smellers deceiving us. Oh, yes, the refreshment com- mittee's serving hot dogs, along with potato chips, cokes, pop, and cheese-sandwiches. Must be the music tempo has changed as there certainly are a big number of fellows danc- ing now. Look over here-those two inseparable Iunior girls are just getting in the groove when they're cut in by-well, you guess for yourself. We'll tell you one thing though, the girls are Bert Waith and Barbara Peterson. If you look around a bit, you're liable to see a few strange faces-yes they're from out of town, mostly from Iamestown. There is one tall, light fellow who seems to have a keen interest in Pauline Ognibene. Well, I think we've covered most everything tonight- oh wait, there must be something else coming up. Could it be a floor show? Yes sir, that's just what it is. In case you're wondering who the announcer is, We'll inform you that he is one of the trumpet players, Dick Nunn. If any of you girls are interested, ask Ioyce Hine. lt looks as though the first number was going to be ci piano solo by the jazz band's pianist, Lynette Anderson. Very good, Lynette, and now comes a tap dance by Hose Marie Lopresto. Well, we haven't time nor space to ramble on much longer but a song by a trio, drum solo, vocal solo, and a comedian act brings us to the end of tonight's "Roost" program. But thanks for being nice with your Corridor staff--did you enjoy it? Compliments and Best Wishes CONGRATULATIONS of the to the Class of '45 HARDWARE co.lnc. PETE't50"'5 0 eznrnu. runner Elmer A.

It isn't much of a place, considering its name. All there is to it is about seventy-five to a hun- dred cottages, a gas station, a restaurant, and a few small buildings. That morning after breakfast we were standing outside when the gasoline attendant approached us. He asked us if we had been down to the spring to have a drink of water. We hadn't so we went down to get one. The word was spread around and soon everyone was going down to the spring. It turned out that "The Spring" was only an old automobile spring in a box. l4..T Q Lois Dunning . . E had been making paper masks in art class, and I had mine nearly completed. When one day later, I went down to class and I happened to look in the cupboard where I had left it to dry, I noticed something odd in its appearance. On second glance I noticed a mouse had enjoyed a hearty meal off the nose, mouth, and eyebrows. The worst part was that the mask had been remodeled only three times previously because of dam- age done to it. "If it is not man, it has to be mouse", was Mrs. Critoph's solicitous com- ment. 65 1.

LINDSTRGM AND MEYER 223 West Third Street Flowers H EELAS FLOWER SHOP 214 Cherry Street RADIO SHOW OMETHING new in the form of entertainment in Falconer High School was presented in April by the Choir and Glee Clubs of the school-a Radio Show, complete with an- nouncer, commercials, orchestra, choruses, dancers and comedians. After the singing of "The Star Spangled Banner" Maurice Phillips, the announcer, gave the station identification-station F,L.O.P. and gave a commercial for the Peter Pan Beauty Salon. The chorus accompanied by the "Stardusters" Orchestra sang "There Goes That Song Again" after which an important news bulletin stating Hitler's death was read. To comply with the news, the Glee Club sang "This Will Be My Shining Hour" accompanied by Lynette Anderson at the piano. The F.H.S. Rockettes danced to the number. However, as found out after the number, the bulletin was false-Mrs. Hitler had killed a rat in the cellar and the news had been misinterpreted. There was more music to which Rose Marie Lopresto and Geraldine Ceresa did solo dances. Later in the program, a melodrama, "Iohn's Other Life" was presented with Rich- ard Nunn and Margaret Kennedy playing the leading roles. The Barber-Shop quartet composed of Eenie, Meenie, Minnie and Mike next gave out with a medley of old favor- ites. In reality, they were Robert I-Ioaglund, Lee Gallaher, Maurice Phillips and Frank Caf- foe ably directed by Vincent Lombardo. The audience had a prominent part in the next part of the program. A honeymoon couple was interviewed by the emcees to the delight of everyone and the embarrassment of the couple. A real trolley was used for the "Trolley Song" number with Eddie Naslund, Lee Plano, Mary lane Nelson, and Ianet Chase sharing the seats. After more musical numbers by the choruses and the double'octette, the finale, the real climax of the program was present- ed. A poem, "Ballad of Bataan", was read with the choruses breaking in singing the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" with sound effects and maiorettes. With the entire company taking part, it made a fitting end to an excellent program.

Regardless of the depth of snow, every one came to the darkened auditorium to see the budding actors and actresses give a brilliant perform- ance in both plays entitled, "Pink for Proposals" and "The Brave Shall Serve." The former name tells the story in itself, for in that household of women each was after a marriage license and when one accidentally tripped upon an article which read the color pink would do the trick, the climax came with a decided "red pastel" rush in wardrobes. Remember, though, in '44 and '45 that increasingly evident man problem? And remember how typical the second play was which dealt with the war and Fifth Columnists? What all-American patriots were portrayed in that tense drama that brought the audience so much suspensel Yes, both plays were very outstanding, and credit goes to all participants and to Mrs. Red- field for her sincere and steadfast directing.

BOND AND STAMP DRIVE OMETIMES it's love of personfsometimes love of country, and sometimes a combination of both that induces and encourages us to buy bonds. And because of that insepar- able, and subconscious bond between brothers and sisters, parents and their sons overseas, we are more than willing to buy the bonds to bring them back to their homes and under the government lor which they are fighting, It is the bond between the students of F.H.S. and those who have graduated and gone into the service. Perhaps it was be- cause of this bond that our school of over 500 did even more than a few of the larger schools in the Bond and Stamps Drive. It was definitely because of this "tie" that we raised our Minute-Man Flag in February for having a month's average of 90 per cent or more. Our Robert Morris Committee and Paul Revere Committee have worked constantly and with untiring effort, so to them, to Miss Potter, and Miss Reno, to the cashiers Robert Hine and Roy Luce, and the messenger boys George Brakeman and Albert Edstrom goes the credit where credit is deserved. An excellent result was accomplished and it made our school "tops" in the district. CTORY l'I'A1'l I WAR ONDS Arm BUY IJNITID STAMPS G- E. PETERSUH Q SUN CONGRATULATIONS 168 S.

Goodbye is feeling all that has been felt- It is comprising all that has been prized, Goodbye is trumping after all is dealt- It is reviving things never revised. And so we shake the patient, guiding hands Changing our views from teach me to I've learned, And saying each, "goodbye" break off the strands That sewed living to life-esteem to earned. 83 mww.m,i,,M,,.,:., uw :L-,,1,,. ., mv.
