Mary Caputo was Secretary and Miss Hanna and Miss Seibel were Class Ad- visors. During our junior year, Edward Roberts was made President and Raymond Roods Vice-President, with Mary Caputo acting as Treasurer. Jane McCrea was elected Sec- retary and Miss Hanna and Miss Reed were Class Advisors. In our Senior year, Edward Roberts was re-elected President, and joseph Bowe was made Vice-President.

Harvest Dance The Senior class held a "Harvest Dance" on November 19 and it proved to be very successful. Fenton Murray's orchestra played for the dancing and later in the evening cider and doughnuts were served. Many members of the faculty and Board of Education were present. Everybody present seemed to enjoy himself very much. The "Harvest Dance" helped to increase the Senior Washington Trip Fund and they appreciated the public's aid in making it a success. .....,i9,,,- Senior Play The Senior Play of the class of 1938 was produced Thursday and Friday, December 16 and 17, at 8:15 P. M., in the High School Auditorium. Under the able direction of Mr. Griffith, dramatic coach, the cast pre- sented "The Family Upstairs," a comedy in three acts. V The play showed life typical of many fam- ilies today. Joe Heller, street-car conductor, and father of the family, was portrayed by Page Six Raymond Roods. His wife, Emma Heller, played by Elizabeth Vines, did quite a bit Of hen-pecking and still tried to manage the family also. VVillie, the brother of the fam- ily, was played by George Chambers. VVillie was trying to help others, but his ideas were rather vague for such a lazy fellow. Mar- garet Steele was Annabelle, the kid sister, whose antics proved very amusing. ,lane McCrea as Louise Heller, the oldest daugh- ter, and Edward Roberts as Charles Grant, provided the romantic angle to the plot. Madelyn Joiner as Miss Callahan, was the gum-chewing factory girl whose tongue was as free as her gum. Herby, Charles' kid bro- ther, and Mrs. Grant, Charles' mother, brought before the audience Joseph Bowe and Helene Smith respectively. The play was purely an amusing one and provided the audience with many laughs. It was a real success and money realized from it was added to the Senior Class Fund. - lie.-...T... St. Patricks Card Party and Dance The party was held on St. Patriek's night. It was our last money-making proposition before our trip to Washingtoii, so the whole class worked very hard to make it a huge success. Through the suggestion of Mr. Fletcher, we had most of the organizations of Fort Edward backing us. The card playing began at eight o'clock and the "Swingsters" played for the dancing which started at nine. Despite the weather, we had a grand crowd and the party was a huge success, netting us over 55200. ......-t9........ Senior Characteristics Best workers for class ......

The following meeting the Juniors pre- sented their program. Their chairman was Mary Sheehan. Most of the Juniors who belonged to the club participated. The pro- gram consisted of monologues, dialogues and charades. Next came the Sophomores. Robert Rourke was chairman. This program con- sisted of Sophomore members who put on a program of monologues, dialogues and a fashion show. These programs, put on by the different classes, were only for the bene-- fit of the Dramatic Club members. Wfhile these programs had been going on, a cast which had been selected, was re- hearsing their first play, "The First Dress Suit." On November 3, 1937, the play was presented at an assembly in the Fort Ed- ward High School Auditorium. The High School members and also the Junior High classes were present. The cast consisted of Thelma Johnson as "Betty," Donald Ames as "Johnny," Jane McCrea as "Mrs. Harding," Jack Morse as "Teddy" This play went over so well that it was presented in Argyle a short time later. This concluded the activities of the club during its first year of existence. ............4g....,. Debate Club This year, in addition to our regular league debate, the Fort Edward High School debate team also met llion. The league subject for the year was- "Resolved: That all labor disputes should be settled by compulsory arbitration." Page Eleven THE SIREN. 1938 Un March 9, the annual league debate took place. The Fort Edward affirmative team traveled to Glens Falls, from which an affirmative team went to Granville, and our own negative entertained, in the high school auditorium, members of the Granville affir- mative team. The league championship was won by Granville whose total number of votes was four. The decision at Fort Ed- ward was 2-1 in favor of Granville's affir- mative. In Glens Falls, a unanimous vote was rendered in favor of Glens Falls nega- tive. At Granville, the judges voted 3-O in favor of Granville's negative. The totals, therefore, were- Granville, 4, Glens Falls, 3, Fort Edward, 1. Not to be discouraged by one defeat, how- ever, the team arranged a debate with llion High School, one time champion of own league, and in fourth place in national com- petition at Kansas. Affirmative teams again traveled. At Fort Edward, the decision was unanimously in favor of the negative team, while our af- firmative at llion lost by a vote of 2-1, but succeeded in capturing the winning vote, making the total score 4-2 in favor of Fort Edward. Members of the negative team, which remained to debate at home both times, were: Ronald Powers, john Marine, Lucille Ganley, and Mary Bennett as alternate. The affirmative team was composed of jean Etu, Shirley Ten Eyck, Robert Nolan, and Mary jane McCarty as alternate. Although the squad did not accomplish all that it had planned and hoped, it made a good showing and "stuck to the wheel," even in the face of defeat. With this ex- perienced team as a basis, we are all confi- dent that next year we will have a successful season and do more than break even with one loss and one win. .T.....49-ii.. Press Club As the sun is sinking into the West a weary band of workers file out through the school doors. Some are conversing over the thought that they are in for a vacation, others over some amusing copy to be pub- lished in the Commencement Issue. They are the members of the Press Club. Throughout the whole semester they have worked faithfully and industriously to pub- lish a paper worthy of its name and they have succeeded in doing so. Their dreams to publish a Senior Commencement Issue have been fulfilled. Weeks of tedious writing, typing and research, account for the condition of the members. They are phys- ically exhausted but happy in mind. They can hardly wait to watch the surprised looks that many of the students will acquire when the Commencement Issue is distributed. They have published a paper which should remain priceless for many Seniors in years to come when they can open the covers and let their minds go back to the good "old school days." This is the first Commencement issue Page Twelve A published by our school since 1925 and the Press Club will strive to publish it annually from now on. Although this book is con- sidered very valuable by the Press Club members, they are only charging a small sum for it. It is worth, the price to find out what the Seniors have accomplished during their high school career. Next year the Press Club plans to publish an annual for the school. With the know- ledge and experience which has been gained this year, next year's paper should be very good. Practically all of the present 1ne1n- bers will be on next year's staff, plus those who join next semester. The present staff is composed of the following students: Edi- tor, Michael Ruotolo, Business Manager, Bradley Wright, Circulation Manager, Gil- bert Millsg Sports Editors, Jack Whalen and Andrew Shelly, Humor Editors, john Mar- ine and Ronald Powers, Art Editors, Michael Ruotolo and Clothier Maloney, Typists, Jean Etu, Thelma Johnson, Robert McCarty and Helen Hoag, Reporters, Gold- ie Daniels, Bill McCarty and Muriel Butler. THE SIREN . 1938 Girls' The Girls' Glee Club, under the direction of Miss Etu, was organized for the year in the month of September. It met on Mon- day and Thursday throughout the year. The first meeting was devoted to taking attend- ance and voice tests. The club was then divided into parts consisting of Soprano, Second Soprano and Alto. On February 8, the Glee Club gave its first public performance. It appeared at the public meeting of the Civic League. The girls gave a very fine performance, render- ing the following songs: "Dedication', by Franz, "Morning" by Oley Speaks, and "The Snow Storm" by Rogers. The second appearance was made at the annual Spring Concert. Three groups of Memb e Rose Anne Arcurio, Eva Barker, Betty Bennett, Dorothea Bennett, Mary Rose Bowe, Geraldine Brown, Margaret Canti- ello, Margarite Chapman, Shirley Clark, Mary Dangelico, Anne Deutschbein, June lloyle, ,lane Elder, Helen Etu, .lean Etu, Helen Finn, .lean Horwald, Christine lan- ueei, .lean LaSarso, Elizabeth Leonard, Anita Marine, Eleanor Martin, Mary ,lane McCarty, Irma Mills, Catherine Murphy, limma Newton, Catherine Roberts, Elsie Robinson, Anne Sears, Phyllis Sears, Mary Sheehan, Helen Simmons, Helene Smith, Glee u Club songs were offered, consisting of "Deep River" and "Jacob's Ladder," "Morning" and "Marianna," t'Golden Slumbersu and "The Dancers." The girls will sing at the graduation ex- ercises and will choose their songs from the following group: '6Dedication" by Franz, "Send Out Thy Light" by Gounod--ar- ranged, and "The Heavens Resoundn by Beethoven. This will conclude the activi- ties of the club for the year. The club was composed of fifty-five girls including Helene Smith who served as ac- companist. This was a much larger group than previous years and was a more suc- cessful one. rs of Glee Club faecompanistj, Margaret Smith, Elaine Stanley, Eleanor Taylor, jean Toole, Susie VVilliams. junior High School Members Ulympia Aurelia, Mary Boucher, Dorothy Bruso, Mary Catone, .lean Clark, Gloria Collier, Beverly Doyle, julia Flores, Antoi- nette Frawley, Patricia Galloway, Emily Miller, Betty Pashby, Carmela Peters, Mar- jorie Rice, Florence Roberts, Phyllis Shelly, Roberta Stead. 49.1.1- Sclwol Ensemble Our instrumental work throughout this year has proved to be far more successful than in previous years. The faculty, student body, and members of the ensemble itself have shown great interest and support in this field. Under the supervision of Miss Eleanor lftu, supervisor of music in the Fort Edward School, the ensemble has consisted of the following students: lst violins-Ronald Powers and Anita Boissoneau. 2nd violins-Grace Butler and Roberta Stead. Cellist-Jean Etu. Trum- pet-John Marine. Pianist-Miss Etu. Rehearsals have been held regularly once a week throughout the school year.

THE SIREN. 1938 SIFMMARY--The boys started the season off in fine shape by winning the first few gameS by large scores. After this excellent start, the team began to slip and they seemed to lack cooperation. This "slump" continued through out the rest of the season and many games were lost by a few points margin. Although finishing near the end of the list, they scored 396 points against their opponents' 377.

The boys won the first two games by large margins and then they lost their stride. Partially to blame for this, is the lack of experienced moundsmen.

The rest of the team has shown fine examples of good ball playing and hope to finish the season by winning their remaining games.

They are leaving our premises and are going out into the world to make use of the knowledge they have obtained from their twelve years of study in school. VVe hope that they will reach the heights of achievement both in the social and business world. Their success has been attained through many mediums. First there is cooperation, without which no class can work smoothly. Then there is work., Work not only seems to be, but is, the basis. of success. No one can attain success without it. This time of the year seems to be the most melancholy one throughout the whole semester. There is a reason for this and if you have not already guessed it, it is be- cause of Regents. Regents is a peculiar thing and is dreaded by all high school stu- dents, but nevertheless it is required by the state. It does not seem right that a person who works industriously throughout the year at a passable average should repeat the same schedule because he or she got 64 in- stead of 65 on a Regents test. The exams are feared so much that nervousness, fright and worry are often the cause of failures rather than lack of knowledge. But since they are required, you should prepare for them, a few hours of extra study may save you a whole year of school work. Your teachers are more valuable to you than your hooks, without them your books are worth- less and you are helpless. They are here to Page Sixteen . , teach you what they know and it not only is your privilege but your duty to accept this knowledge. The members of the Press Club wish to express their gratitude to the members of the faculty who helped them throughout the whole semester. Without their help, we would have never obtained the success which we have. Their generosity has been a great help and we appreciate it a great deal. -The Editor. "Farewell Seniors with Trust and Best Wishes" To you, members of the class of '38, the school has been beckoning for the past 12 years. The bells of the school have been ringing to you its message, calling you to your classes, calling you to your many tasks through which your teachers, parents, and friends have been sincerely trying to aid you to develop fine character and those qualities which will enable you to take your place in life as worthy citizens of your community, state, and nation. The bells of the school have called you to tasks which were many times odious, summoning you to studies which in your heart you felt were neither useful nor interesting. However, during these past years you have heard and obeyed as they called you to listen and learn. All too often, perhaps, they have not called you to discuss the sterner problems of life nor to face the realities of life. All too often, perhaps, they have merely called you to attend school, to he prepared to recite the lessons assigned to you, and to play and enjoy life when classes were over. They have called you, no doubt, when you wished they were far away, when lessons were not so well fixed in your minds, and when the dread of failure loomed large. The bells of the school will soon be silent to you. But do not think that because you no longer pay attention to the clamor of the school bells that all is ended-for you have but begun. If you think you have completed an education by graduating from high school, you are like the man who, with a drop of water in a teaspoon, boasted that he had corralled the ocean. tContinued on page twenty-twoj Tim SIREN. 19:32-s FACULTY 3 , v .

Page Seventeen THE SIREN. 1938 Washington Tour Un the morn of April 15, 1938, the Senior class members of Fort Edward High boarded the 6:20 train to start their long journey to Washington, D. C. We arrived in Albany at 8:43 A. M., and we were given one hour and a half to look the town over. A group of our boys led by Mr. Roberts, who supposedly knew the 'flayoutv of the town, walked for over an hour to find a place suit- able to eat in and when we did find the place, we discovered that it was about a min- ute and a half walk from the station. WKNTC left Albany at 10:26 A. M. and we had an eight hour seventeen minute ride ahead of us before we reached VVashington, D. C. The boys and girls played cards, read maga- zines, etc., to pass the time away. VVoody went to the observation car and slept there in one of the over-stuffed chairs during the whole trip. Some of the boys made new ac-- quaintances during their tour on the train and their time was spent with these new friendls. VVe passed through New York City at 1:55 P. M. and arrived at .lersey City at 2:30 P. M. Here we stopped long enough to hook on a dining car and a faster train. We passed through Reading, Pa., at 4:05 P. M. and about this time most everyone was settled down, some were sleeping, others reading and a few playing cards. We passed through Philadelphia at 4:24 P. M. and ar- rived at Baltimore, Maryland, at 6:08. After leaving Baltimore, the students started get- ting things together and at 6:53, we arrived at our destination, Washington, D. C. VVe boarded Van Zile's special buses, which took us directly to our hotel, the New Ebbitt. No one slept the first night because a great many just lay awake and talked of the trip and even those who tried to sleep were out of luck because other tours were pulling in the hotel at all hours and they made so much noise that hardly anyone slept. Our tours of the city began the next morn- ing at eight o'clock. The city of Washing- ton is a very unique one and the streets are so carefully laid out and numbered that one would find it hard to lose himself. The buildings and scenery are a sight that every- one should view if he or she has the oppor- tunity to do so. The buses used on the tours belonged to the Capital Transit Company Page Eighteen and they were very comfortable coaches. VVhilc in Vtfashington, we saw almost every building in the city and all those in- cluded in the tour. The weather was very fine in XVasl1ington, but on the day of our tour to Annapolis we were greeted there by a downpour of rain, and as a result the guides were unable to give us a complete tour. W'e arrived in time to see the midshipmen drill and it was a very fine drill with each f'Mid- dy" in perfect step. VVe then returned home tired and worn out from our day's tour and the singing aboard the bus coming back lacked the pep and vigor that was shown when we first started out. Un Tuesday, April 19, the students went on buses to Union Station and entrained at 1 P. M. for New York City. VVe arrived at Grand Central Station and boarded 1711565 which took us aboard a ferry boat. VVe trav- eled about twenty minutes upstream and then docked on one of the piers. Our buses then drove off the ferry and took us to the Hotel Taft. The hotel was luxuriously fur- nished, and everyone enjoyed his stay at it. W'hile in New York, we took an N. B. C. Radio Tour which proved very interesting and amusing. The rest of our time was free and we made use of every minute of it. One night a Fort Edward boy and a lady friend were doing the "Shag,', at the lnternational Casino, one of New York City's smartest night clubs. His footwork was so clever that everyone left the floor and the show stopped to watch him go through his routine. He was congratulated by the audience and was granted many selections hy the orches- tra leader. Thursday afternoon, suitcases were packed and the students were ready for home sweet home. At 4:30, we took special cabs which brought us to the Grand Central Station. After about an hour's wait we boarded a fast train which brought us home in record time. The trip home passed very quickly and everyone was tired from the tour. We arrived in Fort Edward at 10:20 P. M. and were greeted by a large gathering of town folks. Although everyone was glad to be home, we all hated to leave Vifashington, The city is so attractive and interesting that one would like to spend a few months to look the place over. THE SIREN. 1938 The lBool0 Worm Hole Let us suppose, worthy reader, that hitherto you have not visited the bright spot of the Fort Edward High School, the scene of melodramatic action, romance and riots -the High School Library. This being the case, if I may be allowed to quote some worldly, or should I say, earthly writer, "Prepare to die, and follow me." Upon opening the door of Room 7, floor 3, if by chance we are given to staring straight ahead, our gaze will rest on the athletic field, as seen through the seven large windows directly facing us. Further investigation having been prompted by some instinct, We discover that there are a number of other objects in the room, and immediately become engrossed in the highly educational and literary atmos- phere. The walls are lined with bookcases, wherein may be found books of all types- fiction, dictionaries, reference books, and magazines. Its back to the last window on our left, stands a magazine rack, from which flutter several flag-like objects. These later prove to be newspapers, tossed with reckless aban- don over crude little flag pole affairs, the ends of which are inserted into special holes in the side of the rack. Near this stands the dictionary, on a tri- pod. Here dreamy-eyed students while away their time, absently plucking at the pages, and gazing out the window at the girls' ar- chery class in action. And just in case they tire of standing up, there are five long tables, with eight chairs at each. These are provided with drawers, equipped with excellent "banging powers" when brought into Contact with student knees. Last, but not least, is the teacher's desk, the most gazed-at object in the library, since here sits Miss Mercer, our new librarian. We've often wondered why every study hall has become suddenly empty of its male population, and after visiting the library, I shouldn't be surprised if you and I had come upon a very plausible excuse for all the barked shins and smashed fingers suffered in the rush. , -SHIRLEY TEN EYCK. ....,.49 i Subject - Wanted I am asking for another subject. Yes! I know that probably it sounds queer but for some time I have been thinking how pitifully uninformed we are about a subject which, in my opinion, is very important. Its im- portance lies in the fact that it is needed in every phase of life. I am sure it is a wonderful subject, to say nothing of its fascination. It could never be boring or uninteresting for there is al- ways something new to learn. You ask, "Is this subject difficult?" No! That is the wonderful part of it. It would be easy to understand, explain and practice. The teacher of this subject would be looked-up to and respected a great deal because he knows so much more about this subject than you do. This subject, unlike other ones, is not one that you simply learn one year and forget the next. Neither is it like a subject that you forget as soon as you leave the class- room. You would, or certainly should, car-- ry this knowledge, or should I call it ability, with you wherever you go or whatever you do. This subject would make many persons want to be at the "head of the class." Prac- tice makes perfect you know, and you could find so much time to utilize your knowledge that you could not help but succeed in it. This is not merely something to talk about and forget. It really should be taught in every school in the United States. Yes! Even schools in every part of the world. You ask, "What is this subject?,' I will tell you in one word. It is "Etiquette" Why not have someone give it a try and see what pupils could do with it. I am sure We could all use it. -JUNE DOYLE. 3 Page Nineteen THE SIREN. 1938 A Glimpse Into The Study Hall Fifth period was finally over and classes were changing. I ran to my locker hurried- ly, grabbed some books, and struggled in vain through the crowded corridor. At last I reached the study hall door and a minute later, I sank down exhausted in my seat. The period was soon underway, and my mind commenced to wander Qas it always does sixth period in the afternoonb. First, I looked out the large and bright windows into nature's paradise, "Outdoorsf' How I longed to be there. Drawing my eyes away from the green trees and the sparkling sunshine, I rested my eyes upon different people in the room. My first gaze fell upon Albert Hilfinger, sitting across from me. He was reading a western story, and biting his finger nails as fast as he read. His mouth, as I could smell, was overloaded with Teaberry gum. Leaving Albert to his interesting book, my eyes wandered over to the other side of the room. Here, I found .lack Whalen sit- ting, or almost lying down. His books were on his desk untouched, his mouth was mov- ing slowly, his eyes kept closing, a little more, and before I knew it, he was sleeping in peace. It was too bad the fire whistle didn't blow, for then I am sure that ,lack wouldn't have been sleeping, but struggling with the study hall teacher to let him go. Right behind jack sat Bill Slack. To my astonishment he wasn't doing much of any- thing. He was just sitting very still, never changing his position. However his two hands weren't very still. They kept moving up over the top of his seat, until finally they touched the back of Eleanor McCurry's seat. They kept moving still farther, until at last, hc reached Eleanor's hair. Her hair looked very tempting to play with and so Billy commenced to pull. Pulling her hair wasn't so much fun, and so he started to tie it into little knots, and small balls. This was good fun, but poor Billy had to be taken from his fun, when Eleanor turned around quickly, and told him not to play with her hair. Fortunately the girls cannot be made fun of, for all were engrossed in their studies. Coming back to earth again, I came to the conclusion that study hall was a very inter- esting place. It reminded me of a corner grocery store Where almost anything may happen. All sorts of people come in to and go out of this room a thousand times a day, but we never stop to think of how interest- ing or uninteresting some of them can be. --JEAN TOOLE. The Autocmts Of The Library Table Now, technically speaking, an autocrat is one who reigns supreme and unchallenged in any one group. Therefore, it seems rather unusual to use the plural when referring to just one table. Perhaps I should say "the would-be-autocratsu because no one of them actually succeeds in his designs. The first autocrat I would like to disclaim is the newspaper reader. You are familiar with the awkward pole which holds the newspaper. Well, the newspaper autocrat has an uncanny persistency to ram this miniature flag staff into the optics. Envel- oped in the folds of this same newspaper, you are unable to do anything. Next to this autocrat is the sports auto- crat. He looks over the shoulder of the newspaper autocrat and continually holds forth on the relative merits of the "Yanks" and the "Giants," At every library table there is the teacher's Page Twenty pest. lt's his duty continually to attract the ICZlCllC1',S attention by slamming a book down with unnecessary force or by bluster- ing loudly against some imagined injury done by the person next to him. In addition hc runs to his locker as often as he can get permission to do so. A fairly harmless autocrat is the walking library. He carries every last one of .his textbooks with him and insists upon having enough room on the table for all of them. He also gets a stack of reference books as an auxiliary to his library. I'm sure you recognize each one of these types I have mentioned. You have probab- ly come in contact with each one at your table. So the next time you notice them just smile knowingly to yourself as I do in my conceit in thinking that I am the only one there lacking such idiosyncrasies. -WILLIAM SLACK.

"Farewell Seniors with Trust and Best Wishes" fContinued from page sixteena The Bells of Fort Edward High School may soon be silent to you, but there are other bells calling which are far more in- sistent, far more authoritative, than any you ever may have heard. No tinkle of sound may be heard as they ring to you. They are for your ears alone, they may call to you alone. Let your consciousness fail to hear them and they have rung in vain. VVill you listen to them as they ring? My happy and very pleasant relations with you this past year have strengthened my faith that you will. To you all I wish every success. ERLVIN R.
