FREDONIA, NEW YORK
During the course of the day the sun in its path across the skies sees many
events. Like the sun, We of the staff have seen many happenings dur-
ing the year. Some of these will long be remembered: others will
soon be forgotten, and still others, although not in themselves memo-
rable, are, we feel, Worthy of a place in our year book.
In the presentation of our 1940 Hilltopper we, the staff, Wish to ac-
knowledge our sincere appreciation for the Wholehearted cooperation
which We have received from both the faculty and the entire student
body. This cooperation Which is characteristic of our high school is
a prominent factor not only in making our book a success but also
in making our year as members of the l-lilltopper Staff a pleasurable
This year the staff has chosen the theme, "Meet Fredonia," so that
in the years to come When you glance through the l940 "Hilltopper,"
you will be reminded of the "School on the Hill" at Work, at study,
and at play. More especially our theme will remind you of the town
and the people who make our "Alma Mater" possible. lf this remem-
brance can in any Way make your life a little happier, our book has
been a success.
S. GORDON CORTER
This 1940 'AHilltopper" is dedicated to one Whom We all admire as a
kindly friend, a wise counselor, and an outstanding teacher. Mr. Corter
came to Fredonia High School when We of the class of 1940 were fresh-
men to teach history, debate, and track. His genuine enthusiasm has
always been an inspiration in all school activities, and the real Warmth
of his encouragement has kindled a responsive zeal for accomplishment
on the part of those students With Whom he has come in contact. Be-
cause Mr. Corter has so Won the affection of the members of the class
of 1940, We dedicate our "I-Iilltopper" to him With our best Wishes for
a long and happy career in F. H. S.

In years to come no books in your library will he referred to more fre-
quently than will the Hilltoppers of your four high school years. The
future holds many interesting events in the lives of the present stu-
dents of our school. Some day some former classmates will Win honor
and distinction. Their names Will be Written up as leaders in the World
of affairs. Immediately you Will turn to the Hilltoppers of '37, '38,
'39, '40 to see how they looked and to find what they did While stu-
dents in Fredonia High School. We join in thanking an excellent 1940
annual staff for the assurance of many pleasant reminders in the years
of the l96O's.

We, the senior class of l94O, Wish to express our sincere appreciation to Miss
Clara Hazelton for her many services to us and to our school. She has been the
teacher of French at Fredonia High School since 1926. In addition to her class
room Work, Miss Hazelton founded our present Dramatic Club and Was at one
time its sole director, for the past few years she has been a co-director: her assistance
in Camera Club work has been invaluable to that organization. In spite of her
varied interests in school, Miss Hazelton has found time to be active in com-
munity organizations, such as the Yo No Se Club, the University Women's Club
and the Dunkirk Literary Club. We, the class of 1940, shall always remember
Miss Hazelton for all her contributions to the "School on the Hill" as Well as
for her kindliness in her relations With us both in and out of the class room.
We wish her success and happiness in her life away from Fredonia.

This year the junior class, having entered upon the career of upper
classmen, conduct themselves with a new dignity that is strange to be-
hold, particularly as it manifests itself in the persons of some of our
members. However, of the president of the class, John Bell, we are
especially proud, for he is also the president of the Student Council
and in that capacity helps to determine the student activities of Fredonia
One of the high spots in our current history was the prom which we
so successfully conducted that reverberations of its splendor are still to
be heard about the corridors. We fear that no other class will be quite
able to surpass our dance, especially in respect to the beauty of the de-
corations: Perhaps, however, these underclassmen, who from our
exalted ition look too, too, verdant, may amount to something good,

I am the tall, dark, and-ahem-handsome type. I don't know what it is that gets
'emg maybe it's my dimples. Who am I?
I am the strong, silent type. I am pretty good in my school work, and this year
I joined the Beta Hi-Y. Who am I?
I am very argumentative. I guess I have more debates than the Debate Club.
Everybody thinks I am a Woman hater - CBoy, do I have them fooledljWho am I?
I am a playboy - at least, I play around a lot. Who am I? Q
I figure prominently in class politics, and am an officer of the Student Council.
I am a member of the Debate Team and am never at a loss for Words, except
possibly, in geometry class. Who am I?
I attend all the dances, but I am definitely not a jitterbug. Who am I? . sf

As freshmen We are striving to build our "House Beautiful" - a structure We Will
be proud to claim When We stand aside in 1943 to View the completed building,
our four years in E. H. S. How splendid will the structure then appear! Even
now With but a year of Work upon it, it gives promise of beauty. Its founda-
tions are sunk deep in the traditions of our school, so deep that even when the strong
Winds of failure beat upon it, there will be no quaking. The materials out of Which
We will create the fine superstructure are the skills We gain through the enthusiasms
and the interests of our teachers. These materials, cemented closely by the friend-
ships and loyalties we are forming in this freshman year, will indeed make a fu-
ture "House Beautiful" - four years of life at E. H. S. f a 1

The Student Council of Fredonia High School has added a second mile-
stone to its successful history. We have endeavored to follow the pre-
cedent set by those before us and have made additions to the social fea-
tures of our school life.
This year a group known as the Social Committee, which consists of
representatives from the Parent-Teacher Association, the faculty, and
the executive board of the Student Council, has conceived and carried
out plans for social hours of dancing and games for the enjoyment of
the entire student body.
The Student Council has also continued its policy of arranging the
school social calendar for the year, trying to create a friendly feeling
between the faculty and the students.
The Student Council is made up of the four officers of each class and
two faculty advisers. We, the Student Council, feel that our organiza-
tion has become a vital part of the school's management and we expect
0-ur group to continue to bein importapt factor of school life. ,

This year the Fredonia High School band has soared to stellar heights in the music
World. The band ranks among the foremost activities of our school and has
earned this merit by its tireless energy in putting on programs for the school and
the public. Several Well-attended concerts were given this year at which soloists, as
Well as the entire group, were featured. We of the band feel that this year we have
accomplished our aim of providing better music for Fredonia.

The 1939-'40 orchestra has developed into a fifty-piece organization. Its first pub-
lic appearance was on the evening of February 5, when the group supplied the music
for the play, "The Family Upstairs". At various times during the year it has played
in chapel, At present the orchestra is making plans for its Spring Concert, the West-
ern New York Music Festival and the State Contest. At the close of the year the
orchestra will furnish all the music for the Commencement activities.

Every Tuesday and Thursday mornings there can be heard a flow
of harmony which could come from no other organization but the
Boys' Glee Club. This year's club is an improvement over the school's
past organizations of this kind because of a larger enrollment.
Under the able direction of Mr. Emanuelson, the Boys' Glee Club
made its first public appearance with the other choral groups and or-
chestra in the Annual Spring Concert. It completed a successful year
by making a fine appearance at the Western New York Music Festival
singing the following numbers: "The Winter Song" by Bullard, "Pass-
ing By" by Purcell-Cockram, and "Sing Me a Chantey with a Yo-
Heave-Ho" by Wellesley.
Mr. Emanuelson was assisted in his work this year by two student
directors from the State Normal School, Mr. George Butler and Mr.
Carl Lester, who conducted numbers both at our Annual Spring Con-
cert and at the Music Festival.

"ON THE HILL" is Fredonia High School's newspaper published week-
ly in "The Fredonia Censor", the village newspaper. During the present
school year an effort has been made to produce a paper of which the
school might be proud. To this end the staff was increased in number
and the work of gathering and writing the news has been conducted in
a more formal manner than ever in the history of the school. Regularly
each week throughout the year the staff has reported for assignments
and for the exacting business of getting the copy ready for the printer.
The aims of the staff have been to record school happenings of interest
to the entire student body, to interpret the school to the community
through the "Principal's Corner", and to entertain our readers with the
'vVe wish to thank the students and the teachers of P.H.S. for their loyal
cooperation and the Editor of the "Censor" for his generosity in giving
us space and the benefit of his counsel whenever we sought it. Our hope
is that the coming year will show more progress in and continued en--
thusiasm for "ON THE HILL".

This is the second successful year of the Jolly Homemakers' club. Our
chief purpose is to help the members extend their homemaking interests
socially and vocationally.
During our regular meetings we drew up a constitution, elected officers,
and worked on crafts. Our social meetings included Christmas and
theatre parties, a picnic and a Mother and Daughter banquet.
The Mother and Daughter Banquet was the outstanding event of the
year. We served a tureen dinner buffet style. Our program consisted
of a brief skit, a fashion review showing appropriate choice of colors
and styles for the blond, brunette, brownette and Titian. The remainder
of the evening was spent in playing games.
Two of our members, Sarah Diate and Alta Shaw, assisted by Miss
Frisbee gave a vocational talk over station W.J,T.N. at Jamestown
during Easter vacation. They discussed the homemaking courses offered
in high schools and the possibility of using the training given in each
course as an aid in obtaining work.

One of the busiest corners in the school this year has been the library,
associated With which has been the Library Club.
The club this year was organized with two basic purposes: first, to
enable students to discover aptitudes which they may have for library
work, and second, to afford its members some opportunities for so-
cial activity. Every member has been required to Work one hour a
week in the library. This period has afforded her an opportunity to
have practical experience in all phases of library routine. Last fall, our
club sponsored an exhibit for National Book Week, and in March, par-
ticipated in an exhibition of the special departments of the school. We
have also sold candy to finance our social activities, which have con-
sisted of theatre and other parties.
We, the members of the Library Club, Wish to thank Miss Saxton for
her splendid co-operation. We also Wish that the members of next
year's club have as much success and pleasure in their organization as
we have had in ours this year.

The Stage Crew, those people never seen on the actual stage, but upon
whom the most details depend, added greatly to the efficient and suc-
cessful manner in which the school's productions were conducted this
This is the second year that this group has been organized. In it are
students of the Fine Arts, the Home Economics, and the Industrial Arts
classes. As a member of this group each student has a splendid oppor-
tunity to serve his school.
With the help of the stage crew, a new stage set was constructed this
year. In the making of this each member was given an opportunity to
understand how such sets are properly constructed. Along with this
new equipment came the necessity of a property room. Shelves and
other equipment were made to help make this room as efficient as possible.
The Dramatic Club plays, Christmas Program, Music Concerts, Chapel
Programs, and the Senior Festivities were all produced with the essential
aid of the stage crew.
Although our work has been hard, and we have spent long hours to
help produce these programs, we feel that the work has been very in-
structive and enjoyable.

pins of strange design and hues to Wear on my lady's lapel. Special orders
Were taken for drums and green trumpets to represent the musically in-

but you may be sure they Weren't for themselves.
We were in hibernation for the Winter, but with spring We came out with
the violets. The group has enjoyed trips to the Albright Art Gallery and
to a fashion show in Buffalo. During the year We have sketched every-
thing from the Laona church and the Fredonia Reservoir to Lake Erie
and return. We exhibited the Work of the year at the annual art eX-
hibit held in March for the P.T.A. In all We have reason to believe that
this year has been our best yet, and We extend our Wishes for the future
success of the club.

The debate team representing Fredonia High School for the school
year 1939-40 has experienced the most successful season ever enjoyed by
this forensic activity. The group this year debated the National For-
ensic League subject, "Resolved: that the Federal Government should
own and operate the Railroads", undertaking the most extensive and
difficult schedule ever attempted.
Debating stands for all that is highest, all that is best in the art of public
speaking. While debating success is not measured entirely by the number
of debates won, on that score alone the season may well be deemed one
of outstanding accomplishment. Eighteen victories were won in a total
of nineteen debates. For the third time in four years Fredonia won the
championship of the Lake Erie Debate League. By doing so we have
, . . I
acquired our second consecutive Alleghfeny College Debate Trophy.

The first senior girls' club in the history of Fredonia High School was
organized in the fall of 1939. Senior Sorosis was selected as the name
of the club, and a pin Was chosen to indicate membership. The pur-
pose of the organization is to promote friendships among the girls of
the class, to establish a closer pupil-teacher relationship, to provide op-
portunities for student leadership and co-operative effort, and to af-
ford entertainment for all the members.
During the year the girls of the club have attempted to make the senior
girls' room a more attractive place to those who spend the noon hour in
the buildingg they have sold pencils to raise money for club purposes.
In addition the girls have enjoyed a picnic, a theatre party, a Christmas
dinner party, and a "Mary Jane" frolic. Before the close of the year.
the club hopes to entertain the mothers and also the junior girls Who will
be members of Sorosis next year.
It is the hope of the present group that throughout the coming years
Senior Sorosis will continue to function and flourish.

"Be Prepared" - the motto of all scouts is the pledge of service. This
year Miss Miller organized a troop of Senior Girl Scouts for those who
Wanted to continue their scout work. We have had many enjoyable
meetings which included a humorous initiation, and a l-lallowe'en party
in October. At our pre-Christmas meeting, We made Wreaths, and in
February Miss Ethel Weyant, director of Girl Scouts, was a guest at
one of our meetings. Miss Weyant gave us an interesting talk on scout-
ing in which she advocated more outdoor Work. The spring meetings in-
cluded craft Work, such as making of leather pocketbooks, hats, belts,
and mittens. During the Easter vacation a breakfast hike Was held for
Which the girls arose much earlier than usual to tramp to a selected spot
beyond the village for a jolly meal together. The group also took part
in the annual cookie selling contest of the scout troops of this vicinity.
As assistant scout leader we had Miss Geraldine Scott until January
when she was succeeded by Miss Florence Miller.
To all future scouts: We salute you and Wish you every success.

The Alpha chapter of the Fredonia Hi-Y Club has just completed its
tenth and probably its most successful year. After being certified in
the fall, the club embarked on a program of interesting activities. These
included an assembly program, attendance at youth conferences, having
a variety of speakers at the meetings, group discussions on current prob-
lems, such as the attitude of American youth toward War, the American
policy, and vocational guidance for youth, trips to nearby places of in-
terest. swims at the Jamestown and basketball,
At the Youth Conference in Albany last fall a bill sponsored by the
Alpha Hi-Y, concerning State Scholarships Was introduced and passed.
This is the fourth consecutive year that the Alpha l-li-Y has been rep-
resented at the Youth Congress, and it is the fourth time an Alpha
sponsored bill has been passed there.
This year's program will be concluded at the annual banquet when the
officers for next year will be installed. We of the graduating class ex-
tend our best Wishes for the success of the club in the future.

There is but one purpose of the Beta I-li-Y club: that is "to create, main-
tain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards
of Christian character". We feel that during the past year we have
lived up to this aim, accomplishing more worthwhile objectives and
building the best club in the nine years of Beta's existence.
Beginning the year with a BANG, activity followed activity in a steady
flow of fun and service. At one time we entertained two hundred
representatives from Hi-Y clubs throughout the county. At Christmas
we tried to help some of the unfortunate families in Fredonia by con-
tributing generous baskets of food and provisions. On several occasions
we have gone to the Jamestown Y.lXfl.C.A. to enjoy indoor swimming.
One of the coveted rewards of service to the chapter is the trip to the
State Hi-Y Convention in Albany. Jack Radloff and Orville Sherman
represented Beta and took a part in the deliberations at the convention.
YVith the annual banquet late in May, we bring to a close another 'suc-
cessful club year.

Once again the curtain falls bringing to a close another successful year for
the Dramatic Club. This year because of an increased membership,
concentrated effort, and splendid cooperation We have produced more
and better plays than formerly. The evening of January twenty-fifth,
three plays were presented. These Were "Student Days", "Thanks
Awfullyn and "The Red Lamp". We presented our first school play,
"The Great Delusionn, in November. This was quickly followed by a
series of one-act plays: notably: "Bring on the Turkey," "Fireman
Save My ChildI", "Wisdom for Wives."
ln addition to these plays presented for the school and for the public,
committees, appointed by Mrs. Hunt, presented programs at each meet-
ing. A great variety of ideas appeared throughout the year. Among these
were several ingenious One-act plays and programs modeled after those
of Kay Kayser, Major Bowes and other stars of radio.
As in every organization we have our unsung heroes - those who did
not appear on the stage but who are every bit as necessary to a dramatic
production as those who do. Before every play the stage crew arranged
the settings to the satisfaction of the cast and the make-up committee pre-
pared the personae dramatis for the actual performance.
At the beginning of the year the officers, ably assisted by Mrs. Hunt and
Miss Hazelton, drew up a constitution and by-laws which were adopted
by the unanimous vote of the club.
Late last fall the Dramatic Club presented the first evening social of the
year under the capable management of Betty Haenel.
The crowning event of our year was the annual banquet held in May.
The members of the club were in complete charge and did a creditable
piece of work. After the dinner the rest of the evening was spent in
playing games and performing stunts.
This year we added substantially to the club's treasury and to the library
of plays which the Dramatic Club started several years ago.
We owe all our success to the unselfish guidance of Mrs. Hunt and Miss
Hazelton, Each of these teachers gave unstintingly of her energies and
time to train the members for their parts in our productions.
"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.

And one man in his time plays many parts."

A squeal! Then a wail! That's probably some Camera Club member
snapping a sub-deb off her guard. "Oh, Johnny, what a sight I am!
What a picture that will be!" But squeals and wails have no effect on
the camera fan. He must have a natural pose. Hasn't that idea been
drilled into all of us this year? What if some poor senior does lose her
dignity - we must have our candid shots!
This year has been one of exuberant interest and some excellent photog-
raphy has resulted. Especially noteworthy has been the work of Roger
Heppell and Gordon Scott. ln our spring snapshot contest two other
members presented the best collection of pictures. We have been for-
tunate in having our fall picture trips at the Fredonia Reservoir, Shumla
Falls, and Scenic Gorge, Silver Creek. Here under expert guidance, we
have secured some admirable pictures. The Messrs. McLaren, our 'AHill-
topper" photographers, have given us helpful information on posing,
lighting effects, and enlarging. We have heard talks also on compo-
sition and the making of silhouettes.

Since last November many students and teachers have been disturbed by
somewhat hideous sounds emanating from room 36. These noises were
produced by the Bird Study Club, which was organized by Mr, Belden
for the purpose of studying birds and learning to imitate, as accurately as
possible, their songs and calls. A few freshmen boys were chosen for
the club and the first periods of Tuesdays and Thursdays for meetings.
The boys have taken great interest in the club and have progressed rapidly
under Mr. Belden's guidance. They have already had several requests
to give calls before audiences. Among their appearances are those for a
high school chapel program, for the Kiwanis Club, for the P.T.A., and
for a Normal School group. Some of the boys are planning to give
talks on birds, illustrated by bird calls, at the Science Congress for high
school science students of Western New York,
The members are looking forward to more bird observation in the
field during the spring and summer. Through this club the boys have
learned much concerning the nature and habitat of birds in addition to
having mastered the interesting hobby of imitating bird calls.

Early in the fall, Coach "Dinty" Moore issued the call for the first foot-
ball practice and a large group of boys responded. Our opening game
of the season was played at Falconer and excitement ran high as the
game time approached. However, a "Falcon" touchdown early in the
game spelled our defeat, and as the game ended we were still behind 6-O.
The next game was played at Gowanda and again we went down to de-
feat by a 6-0 score. At Westfield, our "Hillbillies" showed the most con-
sistent attack thus far in the season, fighting to a 6-6 tie. Salamanca was
our next opponent. We met defeat by a score of l2-6 after scoring our
only touchdown in the second half.
From the Lakewood game we emerged victorious by a score of l2-0.
Both touchdowns came as a result of good running plays by Harry
McKelvey and Captain "Ninn Siracuse.

Basketball season, which opened late in November, began amid great
enthusiasm. After about three weeks' practice we played our first non-
league game. Team captains were appointed before each game.
Salamanca was our first opponent. In a low score game we managed to
keep ahead by a small margin and finally came out victorious by a 23-20
score. In our league games we were triumphant only once, that being'
our thrilling 26-25 victory over Falconer. In the last minutes of the
game we were able to drive ahead and win by a single point. Our game
with Silver Creek was very close and packed with excitement through-
out. As the final whistle blew, however, we emerged on the short end
of a 42-36 score. We played a postponed game with Cattaraugus and
this was our final victory of the year. The score was 51-34.
The appearance of the "German Band" at home'games was a sustaining
factor in creating more school spirit and their support is hereby recognized.
ln preliminary games our reserves showed considerable promise and great
things will be expected of them in the future. To these and to all who,
as basketball teams, will represent Fredonia High School in years to
come we wish the best of success.

The basketball season for girls started shortly after Christmas vacation.
Games were scheduled after school on Tuesdays and Eridays, and the
following team Captains were elected: Helen Civilette, Antoinette Chi-
mera, Marie Hassett, Stella Saccamano, and Dorothy Zentz. Each team
was composed of girls from different classes. This made the competition
keen. Several girls gained valuable experience and learned considerably
about the technical points of basketball when they were given the pri-
vilege of refereeing. The majority of the games were won by Helen
Civilette's team. Following these games interclass games were held in
the time remaining before Easter vacation.
Soccer games were held at the beginning of the season with fairly success-
ful resultsg however, there were not so many participants as usual.
Volley ball, ping-pong, shuffleboard, and badminton tournaments were
held after Easter vacation with a large number of individuals competing.
To prepare for these tournaments a great deal of practice was needed.
Much of the practice was accomplished in the gymnasium classes with the
aid of Mrs. Hunt. We feel proud of our success this year, for the girls
not only have become accurate and efficient players, but also have learned
good sportsmanship. '

Leaders' Club, a new organization for girls, has made great progress
this year. The purpose of this club is to award letters and pins to all
girls participating in athletics. The required points for achieving the
awards are one hundred points for a three-inch letter, two hundred
points for a five-inch letter, and three hundred points for a seven-inch
letter. The highest award for four hundred points is a pin. Each girl
is given five points for every garne in which she participates.
The revived interest in girls' athletics shows that the Leaders'
