THE SIREN . 1938
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.

annual Spring Concert. Three groups of

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
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.
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
This is the first Commencement issue

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.
