Qs Foreword This year the U.N. celebrates the tenth an- niversary of its inception at Lake Success. At Flushing, we have learned to work together in a spirit of friendship. Therefore this event is not simply a commemorative occasion for us, but a time to reflect upon the accomplishments of the U.N. and contemplate the world's future. The U.N. represents the brotherhood and peaceful aspirations of all peoples. We must place our reliance in the U.N. to provide a world of peace and prosperity. Thus, our book is dedicated to the Brotherhood of Man and its symbol, the United Nations. Realization Seest thou thyself as an Island, Simple Man An unmatched high place, far above the surging Sea? Isolated, alone, greater, mightier Than all the roaring Tides, all the noisy Sea? "I am Myselff, thou sayest, "Detached from all the Rest. The Sea is alien to meg I am free of it. I stand far above the endless wash." 0, Foolish Man, thou art as alone as a leaf among leaves, A grain among grains, a part of humanity. And when the Cold Wind blows a single leaf o'er the side, View it not with detachment, for the selfsame Wind Blows chill for Thee. Richard Dreyfuss TABLE GF CONTENTS I m'msor4l 5 Hvzllizzlliml Urs.

We were surprised and saddened by her resignation earlier this year, and would like to express our thanks to her for her guidance during most of our stay at Flushing. It is rare indeed, when a principal is noted for working well with both pupils and teachers. Yet, Mrs. Ward certainly enjoyed this reputation. She was respected and loved by students and teachers alike. We witnessed a convincing demonstration of her administrative ability during the construction of the new wing: she minimized con- fusion and kept the school schedule running smoothly. Her unfailing good humor and boundless energy helped her solve the many problems that confronted her during the fourteen years she was principal of Flushing. However, we will always remember Mrs. Ward for her personal interest in each one of us. We felt that she gave each of us her individual attention, and that our welfare was important to her and to the school. Now, as we graduate, we would like to show our appreciation to her and wish for her continued happiness. 6 Deal Bop and Girls lnspired by the tenth anniversary of the lvnited Nations, the editorial staff of the Gargoyle has chosen a serious theme for the June '56 issue-brotherhood and the U.N. Perhaps this choice indicates a new trend in Gargoyle themes. Perhaps seniors are really becoming grave and serious. Certainly the world that confronts graduates today is a graver world than that of half a century ago. Students of today are also more aware of world problems and the relationship of this country to those problems than were students of even a short while back. Though seniors may be grave, they have their lighter moments that make them balanced people. The theme of the Gargoyle may be serious. but it may also have those lighter touches that make a yearbook fun lo read cven a long time after Commencement.

Class Histor One reason for choosing the Brotherhood of Man as the theme of our Gargoyle, is the wonderful, friendly atmosphere we have been accustomed to during our four years at Flushing. In spite of differences of opinion, fespecially at rally timej and minor disagreements, many lifelong friendships have sprung up among us. We have advanced in knowledge and maturity during our stay at Flushing, and have had all the fun and enjoyment that go hand in hand with growing up. Isn't it hard to believe that we were once frightened little freshmen running through the halls? Besides suddenly finding ourselves in an immense school, we were the victims of many upper-term pranks, as we looked for the gym on the fifth floor and wondered when we could use our newly bought pool and elevator passes. To further befuddle us, we had new and strange subjects, such as French, Latin, Spanish, and algebra. We had enough trouble speaking English, not to mention Spanish. Dressing and undressing for gym in seven minutes seemed impossible and many girls went into a slight state of shock when they saw the bloomer-type gym suits they were expected to wear. Soon we became used to life at Flushing, we were no longer poor, defenseless creatures, but old friends. We began to participate in school activities, and joined either of the political parties, Green and White or Red, White and Blue, getting our first taste of the enthusiasm and fervor of campaigning for our favorites. In our second term the Red, White and Blue Party was dissolved and many of us helped to form the new Silver-Blue Party. Word of Flushing's football team soon reached our ears, and we learned that Memorial Field was being renovated by the "Friends of Flushing," a group of local businessmen. Fired with that true school spirit, we became loyal fans of our team and saw them win the PSAL football title, becoming Queens Champs. We can still remember the wild victory parades from Memorial Field, down Main Street to the Flushing Library, that stopped traffic for miles. Then everybody would go to Jahn's to celebrate. Of course, since we were lowly freshmen, we had the worst session, twelve-thirty to five. The only consolation was that we could sleep late in the mornings. We were encouraged by the thought that we would someday get the eight to twelve-thirty session reserved for upper termers until we heard the rumor that Flushing was getting a new wing, and the whole school would once again be on single session from nine to three. We frosh, however, were unbelievers until we noticed a throng of strange men walking around the school with reams of blueprints tucked under their arms. By now we were rabid sports fans and went over to the Armory to see Flushing win basketball games. One Saturday afternoon we went to see Flushing play New Utrecht at Madison Square Garden. This was one of the closest and most exciting games we had ever seen. The game was all tied up at 149-491 when the final gun went off. Two overtimes were played, but Flushing suffered a heartbreaking defeat and lost the city championship. fffontinuerl on page 291 11 Green and White Chairman DI-:ANNA OLSEN Advisor Mn.

Payton, D. Surace, J. De Fina Green and White is Flushing's oldest political party. With Mr. De Meo, its adviser, it is striving for continued success. Green and White's accom- plishments include the inauguration of music in the lunchrooms and free G.O. buttons. Before rally time, there is much varied activity taking place. After many hours of planning, the skit for the rally is presented. Last term, the theme of the skit was "Santa,s Workshop.,, Starring as Santa Claus was Bart Gabrielli, who did a terrific job. Other members of Green and White portrayed dolls and wooden soldiers. Before the day of pre- sentation, props and costumes had to be designed and posters had to be put up on the walls. Candi- dates had to write and memorize their speeches. It takes a lot of interested people and a lot of tenacious work to have a successful rally. Each term the cycle is repeated with numerous new faces added. Last term, the work of Green and White was re- warded when all four of her candidates won posi- tions as G.O. officers. Through working with Green and White, students -acquire a spirit of cooperation by working towards a common goal. This spirit is helpful to all in later life.

Edelman The Silver-Blue party has been in existence since our second term in Flushing High School. It was formed to succeed the dying Red, White and Blue party and it is still growing. There are about two hundred active students in the party and there are many opportunities for them to participate in the work. There is a skit committee, a poster committee, a publicity com- mittee, a platform committee, and a booster com- mittee, each under the direction of a chairman. Finally, the chairman of the Silver-Blue party co- ordinates all these activities into the large show seen by F.H.S. during rally week. The rallies are presented with a main theme which last term was a quiz program combining "What,s My Line?,' and Masquerade Party. Over its relatively short time in existence, eight candidates for the various political ofiices have tri- umphed at the polls. In the Fall of 1954, Bob Cook, one of our outstanding seniors. was elected vice- president. Left to Right: First Row: A. Stern, A. Adler, N. Kidd, J. Kahan, Mr. Goldberg, M. Anderson, J. Arkin, J.

This group, made up of representatives from each senior section, meets, on the average, twice a week to plan senior activities and festivities. With the aid of Mrs. Phalen, topics such as senior dues, the wearing of caps and gowns at graduation, the date and location of the prom, and other interests are discussed. Most of them are then voted upon by the senior sections. Service League l'rcsir1vn! Srzvmolin Mimsxom-' Aflriscr Mas. Blckrznrow Lcff ln Right: First Row: B. Sinowitz. B. Hagen, F. Sharpe. I..

This organization, headed this year by Natalie Kahan as chairman and Judy In- gram as secretary. is responsible for the holding of all school elections. These include all elections pertaining to C.0. oflicers and G.O. and Service League representatives. Perhaps the most popular election of this year was the one that determined the "Ml: and Miss Rhythm" of the "Rockin Rollw dance. Of special interest to seniors is the fact that the Board of Elections holds the election of senior oflicers. 14 The Service League, under the direction of Mrs. llickerton. is an organization composed of those students who render voluntary school service and who handle the service record cards. All students in each section elect a representative to the Service League Council. The Service League Council in turn elects the oflicers of the Service League. This year they are: President. Seymour Mauskopf: Vice-presi- dent. Judy lngramg Secretary, Barbara Ply: C.0. Council Representative, Eleanor Anderson: Student Tribunal Representative. Faith Brofman. At Council meetings any important issues concerning the Service League are discussed and voted upon. The Service Leagueis principal function is to handle the service record cards. on which credit for all school service is entered. These cards are dis- tributed once a term to the students for the collec- tion of service credit. Three awards are offered for various amounts of service credit. Each council representative is responsible for the distribution and collection of the service cards in his section. The Service League is thus one of the school's most im- portant organizations.

Assembly has a number of important functions. lt discusses and votes on all important resolutions submitted to it or brought up during meetings. lt also has the job of appropriating money to all activities and subsidiary groups of the C.0. It has the power to change or even scrap the con- stitutions of the various subsidiary organizations. Two members of the 0.0. Assembly are elected by that body to the Student Tribunal. jeffrey Steinfeld and Helen Driscoll were the successful candidates for the Fall term. loc Kicrnan and Linda Destefanis represented the 0.0. Assembly for the Spring term. 0ne of the year's most vital issues, the contro- versy over whether oflicers of the school's organiza- tions should hold oflice for a year or for a term. as they have done in the past. was discussed by the 0.0. Assembly last term in a meeting that included representatives from all school organizations. Many provocative opinions were expressed by both sides, but no vote was taken. Everyone is eagerly awaiting the C.0. Assembly's decision on this matter. Biology Lab Squad Left fo Right: First Row: J. Kahan, M. Slutzky, Miss Binge-r, T. Semon, K. Kaletchitz Second Row: J.

Anyone who has ever taken a course in General Science or Biology has benefited from the diligent work of the mem- bers of this squad.

At the induction assemhly last Fall thirty-three students were made members. Meetings are held every second and fourth Thursday. One important activity last term was the tea for Judge Colden given under the auspices of Arista. The chief duty of Arista is to tutor those who ask for aid. The tutoring committee handles all requests. and special rooms have heen set aside each period for tutoring. Recently.

With their wonderful spirit, they keep the teams' morale high. At the cheering squad try-outs, girls from fifth term or over are eligible. They are picked for their athletic ability and good looks. Last term a new class, the Leaders class, was started by Miss McAleer. Its purpose is to train girls to assist teachers in the regular gym classes. This class is open to girls in any term who are interested in extra gym work. Under the excellent direction of Miss McAleer and Miss Berchielli, the Leaders class meets twice a week for two periods. This replaces the regular gym period for the Leaders. The Leaders will be distinguished from other stu- dents by their blue gym suits with large orange "L"s on these uniforms. The gym teachers can rely on these girls to demonstrate their ability to the class and thereby help other students acquire this knowledge. In this class, the girls get the opportunity to do what would ordinarily be impossible to do in a regular gym class because of its large size. The girls play basketball, volleyball, badminton and other extra sports. Some of the girls recently passed a written volleyball ofhcial's test. If they pass the practical test given in the Spring, they will be quali- fied as official referees. Not only can these girls referee volleyball, but they can play it well. This was proven when the Leaders' team triumphed in the inter-class tournament. Thus by aiding the teachers and practicing the cooperation they learn through sports, the Leaders have proved to be a great asset to our school. Orchestra Left lo Riglzl: First Row: M. Veglia, S.

Burchette The orchestra, under the direction of Mrs. Piedra. has hecome one of the school's most important artistic organizations. This group is divided into two sections, the junior and the Senior Orchestras. The main function of the ,lunior Orchestra is to train promising but inexperienced student instrumentalists in orchestral playing. The Senior Orchestra is the principal performing division of this organization and is made up of more seasoned musicians. This group plays at all of the important scholastic functions. including assemblies. special concerts. such as the annual Spring Concert. and at graduation exercises, where they perform the processional and recessional marches. We wish this hard working group continued growth and prosperity in the dissemination of happiness through the medium of music. M imeo Squad One of the least known though most vital of service groups is the Mimeograph Squad. under Mr. lleimeris direction.

Semple SENIOR CHORUS President J on PAYTON Adviser Miss MILLER The Junior Chorus consists of girls in all terms who enjoy singing and have some musical ability. Under the excellent direction of Miss Miller the chorus performs at commencements and other special events during the school year. This term the chorus was featured at a special program honoring Judge Colden, and at the school's Spring Concert. The girls are given a chance to discover their musical talents and many former members have been given wonderful opportunities in the musical world. Students from terms five to eight may belong to the Senior Chorus, which is also under the direction of Miss Miller. Besides participating in activities with the Junior Chorus, members having outstanding voices sing with the All City High Chorus. The two choruses are certainly a credit to Miss Miller and the Music Department of the School. They give boys and girls with talent a chance to perform at many school assemblies, to the enjoyment of all. We always look forward to their appear- ances at the annual Christmas show and at the G.O. rallies. Flushing is fortunate that so many students are interested in good music so that they may bring us songs that have been favorites through the years. The Forum The Folio is Flushing's semiannual literary and art magazine. Students with any creative or artistic ability are urged to oller their contributions, and thi- In-st are st-lei-ted for publication by the Folio stall and their adviser. Mr. Goldberg.

Schmerer, V. Rumore, R. Miranda. A. Howard, J. Adams. P. Sammon, M. Schreiner Every school has its fighters and our school was no exception during the past year. Our football team, under the direction of Mr. Balitsos, proudly displayed the school colors and proved that the title of "Red Devils" was well deserved by placing first among the high school football of our borough with a borough record of four games won and none lost. The team thus earned the triumphant title of "Queens Champs." Out of seven games played throughout the city, our team was victorious in five. Much of the success of the team can be attributed to the fact that most of the players were on last year's team. In order to attain their splendid record, the team did a great deal of sliding through the mud in scrimmiages in a succession of rainy and muddy playing fields. Victory. the keynote of the season, was first sounded in our opening game which started the season exuberantly when we romped Curtis to the score of 19-7. Frank Mambuca was the team's spearhead. for he made the first touchdown of the game, but his efforts were ably supported by two touchdowns of Pape Lukk and Ralph Palla- dino. With last year's defeat by this school avenged, we were ready for more games and victories. Tile team's luck faded slightly when we lost to Dewitt Clinton, l3-0. This loss was more than made up for in our third game in which we edged out Taft by one touchdown, the score being 18-13. We dropped the fourth game of the season to Monroe by a very slim margin, the score this time being 26-19. After this game, however, our winning streak began in earnest and was to continue uninterrupted to the end of the season. Our football team trounced Far Rockaway, 13-6. Palladino and Mambuca continued their great football record by scoring one touchdown apiece in this game. One week later on November 12, the team triumphed over Evander Childs to the score of 19-12. This game saw brilliant playing by Joe Payton, who scored two of our three touchdowns, the third one having been made by Mambuca. After a 12-12 deadlock at the end of the first half, Payton came up with a magnificent dash around the left end for a touchdown that broke the tie of the first half and helped to win the game for us. Excellent offensive playing was displayed by Lukk, Palladino, and Albrecht, as well as fine defensive playing by Bill Croene, in this game. This game continued our winning streak and put us on the doorstep to the title of 'iQueens Champs." Our scheduled game with Stuyvesant was postponed twice and it finally became necessary to cancel it altogether. Thanksgiving Day certainly gave us plenty of reason to be grateful, for it was on that day that the final game of the season was played and it proved to be a fitting end and climax for the football season. Our team smashed Adams to the score of 14--0. Frank Mambuca gave a truly brilliant exhibition of a field play by intercepting a pass on his own forty yard line and, cleverly evading many of Adams' tacklers, ran all the way down the field to score a touchdown. Another touchdown was scored by Palladino in this game while Adams was held scoreless. Thus ended a truly great season for the "Red Devils" and for Flushing. Among the many heartening results of the fine football played this season was the fact that a number of our players were honored in various ways for their good work. Palladino was honored at a dinner sponsored by the Boys' League honoring the P.S.A.L. Player of the Week because of his brilliant performance in the Adams game. Frank Mambuca was the highest scorer in Queens for the season. In connection with this, we are most happy to announce that both he and Don Albrecht were awarded scholarships to Dayton College in Ohio because of their outstanding athletic records. Don Albrecht also made the 'gAll City Teamw sponsored by the N. Y. Journal American. Thus, our football season was a jubilant, victorious one, to be envied by any school. We wish equal success to next year's team and the best of luck to those that made this year's glorious victories possible.

Skinner At the beginning of the year is was generally felt that the 1955-56 season would be a good one. There was the talented sophomore, Andy Edelman, and the aggressive playmaker, Bob Molfetta, to be the nucleus around which the team could be built. The tryouts were held and after careful scrutinization, a thirteen man squad was picked containing four seniors. The team started to train and practice games were played with other schools. Flushing was first tested in a practice game with Jamaica, last year's P.S.A.l... champs. This was the first game played in the new gym. We lost the game 63-48, but it proved that the team could function smoothly as a unit and the talented junior, Rudy Serrett, established himself as the regular center. After final warmups with Jamaica and Franklin K. Lane, Flushing opened the season with Cleveland in our own gym. Rudy Serrett, Ken McCarthy, Tony Skinner and the two backcourt men, Bob Molfetta and Andy Edelman were the starting five. This game was one of many thrills. With only a minute or so left, Flushing went out in front by two points on a layup by Edelman only to lose to Cleveland 4-6-43 in overtime seconds. 26 In Bayside, with the return of Don Albrecht, the only senior on the first team, into the lineup, Flushing won its first league game by the score of 61-48. Pete Baron, Larry Spellins and Bill Croene proved to be able substitutes for the five starters. After another overtime defeat to Long lsland City, Flushing triumphed over Newtown and Bryant High Schools, 55-50 and 69-42, respectively. By the latter part of the first half, Edelman had distinguished himself on ball handling and control, Molfetta had shown a remarkable ability to play a very fast and aggressive game, Rudy Serrett led the team with T0 points, McCarthy had shown some outstanding rebounding, and late starter Don Albrecht had proven himself to be the solid, dependable ball player that he was last year. After we had beaten Bryant, largely due, incidentally, to Rudy Serrettis compiling 19 points, there were whispers of P.S.A.L. playoff games at the Garden in March. Flushing had by this time jelled into a fine offensive and defensive team. The whispers grew to shouts when Flushing defeated Forest Hills, then the leading contender in our division. 46-42. Serrett led the way with 19 points. Flushing ended the first half of the season with a 65-42 win over Edison in which Tony Skinner scored 12 points. We entered the second half of the season with very high hopes. ln the first game, the 'flied Devils" defeated Cleveland 49-46 and then four days later played a thriller with Bayside at our home court. We trailed throughout most of the game, and the final winning score in our favor, 42-40, was hard-earned by us. Flushing next played Long Island City, unbeaten in regular competition against us. The game closely paralleled the previous Bayside game in that we trailed for most of the game and in the late stages tried to surge ahead. However L.l.'C. won by a one point margin, 42-41. We crushed Newtown for the second time and played Bryant in a night game. Bryant won, and we knew that our last chance would be against Forest Hills. Our team, lacking Rudy Serrett, was defeated. ln the closing game of the season against an improved Edison squad, all the seniors played their last game which we won 60-59. John Prudenti, a senior, gave a fine performance that netted 15 points. Thus Flushing ended the 1955- 1956 season tied for fourth place in the league with a 9-5 record. Also this season, Flushing played in the new school gym for the first time, the talented junior, Bob Molfetta, made an amazing 18 out of 19 foul shots in the first halfg a Junior Varsity team was again formed. It was indeed a most exciting season and we can surely hope for the very best in the years to come.

He placed first in two cross- country races, won medals in the Bishop Loughlin and Cardinal Hayes meets, and came in first in the P.S.A.L. Cross-Country meet, covering himself and his school with glory. Bowling Mr. Larsen's bowling team, unfortunately, did not have too favorable a season this semester. This was not due to a lack of good material, for all the team members had fine averages and Peter Priore managed to attain an overall average of 155. Al- though the team won a few preliminary games, it didn't win any matches. 28 Left to Right: First Row: J. Rosenthal, J. Anderson, Mr Harras, G. Scalone, R. Bruning Second Row: D. Winston, J.

With Mr. Levitz as coach and Eddie Pilone as captain, the team won all of its practice games and managed to finish with a .500 average of games won, thus finishing third in Queens. Handball Handball has become one of Flushing High Schoolis popular non-spectator sports despite its re- cent inception in the Spring of 1953. Under the guidance of Dr. Kirsch, the team played ten matches, each consisting of three singles and two doubles, against Forest Hills, Bayside, Newtown and L.I.C., triumphing over L.I.C. With experienced seniors, Dr. Kirsch hopes for a good season this year. Class History f Continued from page 11 I In our sophomore year we were still going home when the sun went down. Some of us had just come from junior high school, and although we felt strange at first, we soon joined the happy "Brotherhood of students of Flushing High School." We had more of a choice in subjects, we began harassing our grade advisers. Many of us had classes or service during the morning session but we had no lunch period. We managed to wolf a complete lunch during the hectic twelve minutes between sessions, though. If you can remember the old lunchroom, you recall how crowded it was with a regular lunch class, besides people like us who sneaked in to avoid starvation. We joined many activities that we had only heard about as freshmen. Since we were still on afternoon session, and most of the activities met in the afternoon, our participation was curtailed a bit. Junior Green and White and the afternoon branch of the Silver-Blue Party received our enthusiastic support. Many sophomore girls joined Boosters, a newly organized cheering section to boost school spirit and spur our teams on to victory. Although we had a disappointing football season, we had an exceptional basketball team again. By now workmen were a common sight around the campus, but the progress of the new wing was carefully hidden from our curious eyes by the high walls and strictly forbidden" signs around the construction work. Once in a while we managed to be around when a workman opened one of the secret doors, and we got a peek at the interior of our soon-to-be completed annex. Towards the end of our sophomore year we began preparing to take that inevi- table plunge-our first regents examinations. We had heard so many rumors concern- ing these mysterious three hour exams that we didn't know what to expect. After cramming all night, we finally dragged our weary bodies into class on the fateful day and we became acquainted with really hard tests. In our junior year Flushing High's fondest dream finally came true. We returned to find a new wing making Flushing twice as big as it previously had been, and the whole school on a single session from nine to three. Now the freshmen could not be told apart from the rest of us, because nobody knew where anything was. To add to the general confusion, equipment was missing, stairs and floors had not yet been built, and workmen were running around the building with precariously situated ladders, tools and cans of paint. Since there were so many students, one-way traffic in halls and on stairways was inaugurated, which really mixed everybody up, because everyone was determined to go the shortest way, regardless of what the sign said. Our new lunchroom resembled a vast buffet. Tables and chairs had not yet arrived. There we sat, balancing a container of milk and a sandwich in one hand, and doing homework with the other. Books, clothing, food and milk were sprawled all over the floor. Latecomers finding all the chairs taken, either "borrowed" one from some careless person, or shared the floor. There was at least one good fight a day over a chair. With the arrivals of tables and hot lunches the lunchroom once more regained some semblance of order. Our new public address system was put into use, and we found a big, beautiful library where the old gym used to be. To the girls' dismay, lockers were finally installed in the girls' gym and once again we had to change into our gym suits. We quickly became settled in our new routine, however, and soon the new wing became just as much a part of Flushing to us as our old building. fC,,,,,i,,,,e,1 gn page 571 H 29 4?

However, now we crawled drowsily into school by eight-sixteen in the morning. It felt like the milkman's shift! When our senior jewelry arrived, we went around proudly showing off our rings, pins and keys, the badges of our success at Flushing. fWell, we were almost sure of graduation. J We saw the January graduates proudly sporting their decorated senior hats and began planning our own hat decorations. We submitted to the humility of being ordered around by the eighth termers on Red Letter Day and wistfully watched them prepare for the first Senior Prom, Senior Show, and dance that the January graduates had ever had. Our own prom was not too far off and we waited impatiently for our special senior activities. To our delight, our teams were wonderful during our last year and once again we emerged Queens Champs in Football. For the first time, our gym was used for all home basketball games. Everyone received quite a shock when our principal, Mrs. Ward, announced her retirement at a senior assembly last November. After her touching farewell, we gave her a standing ovation for several minutes. We all felt a lump in our throats for she had won our' affection and respect during the three years we had known her. Mr. Waring, our 'administrative assistant, served as acting principal until our new prin- cipal, Mr. Arthur Franzen, came to us from Haaren High School in our eighth term. Our senior year was also a year of decision. Many of us were busy filling out college applications and preparing for College Boards and scholarship tests. We haunted Mr. Cray in the college room constantly, looking for advice on what school to attend. Choice of a school or a business career now might be a deciding factor in our lives and we examined each opportunity carefully. As usual, diamonds were on parade as the girls came in announcing their engagements. There was the customary last minute study and cramming to pass those regents and we realized that one failure could mean the loss of the diploma for which we had worked so hard. As we look back and summarize our accomplishments and our good times, we feel that when we go out into the world we will have the greater understanding and spirit of co-operation necessary for happiness in our future lives. Our high school career has taught us the meaning of the words, "The Brotherhood of Manf' We are thankful that Flushing has given us the opportunity to meet and work with students of all races, creeds, and nationalities. This has given us priceless knowledge as we go our separate ways and strive for our individual goals in life. 67 T 1 1 FLus1wing 9-1917 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 MAC GROTTY CHEVROLET INC.
