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 Seniors were first. Edna Hoag was chosen chairman. They put on a program in the form of an amateur hour and a contest was held, for determining the best amateur. The prize was awarded to Margaret Steele, Mary Caputo and Betty Vines, a trio, who sang. Other members of the Senior class who belonged to the club and wished to be in the program were pre- sented. 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....,.

The league subject for the year was- "Resolved: That all labor disputes should be settled by compulsory arbitration." Page Eleven
