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
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.

We would consider our yearbook incomplete without the customary page devoted
to Mrs. Edith Ward, our former principal. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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
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-

One of the most popular of all organizations
with seniors is the Senior Council. 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.

Our student government would be unable to
exist if it were not for the work carried on by the
Board of Elections. 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
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-

organization is composed of a representative from
'llllf' 0.0. 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.

The Biology Lab Squad is a vital service organ
of the school. Its members assist Miss Binger, the
Biology Lab Assistant, in distributing to all the
teachers of biology the materials which make
classes so much more interesting. 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. We are grateful to them for their
service and hope they will continue to be as indus-
trious in the years to come.

Flushing's cheering squad consists of 14 girls
who cheer our teams at games at home or away.
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
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
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.

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. Most administrative notices
are mimeographed by these hard working printers.
They also aid the school's departments by printing
necessary material for them.

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.

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
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.

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
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.

The track team participated in ten meets, five
indoor and the rest cross-country. Grady Crumply
proved again to be the team's star and one of the
city's finest track stars. 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.
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.

The baseball team of last season was able to
make a good showing at the end of last term. 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 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
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

When we finally arrived at the exalted status of seniors, we looked for the
special privileges that come with such a great honor but found that nothing had really
changed. 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
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.
