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 memory. 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. of S. GORDON CORTER Q O 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.

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. Q x GEORGE W.

HAzELToN o o 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. e.Q,e,cA.2 x QfQO,,U,-4 SL, Nlfof-.,q,-cfvhq WNW?

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 High School. 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, ' f ' f - .

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 x.

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.

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.

Mrs. Bessie Haniser "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 "Pattern column. '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". l forty-three forty-f 7fLe f'gc-MA' Glad Uffwm President - ---- Sarah Diate Catherine DeTolla Joyce Weidmaier Vice President Secretary - Treasurer - Mary Ellen Porter Newsreporter ---- Dorothy Grobaski qawliq fqcfwiim . Miss Eunice Frisbee 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.

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. forty-HU Stage Gaew qaculifff vqcfufiiavi Miss Helen Miller Miss Eunice Frisbee Mr. Wesley Leech 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 year. 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. forty-six Shack GM President - - ---- Margaret Harris Vice President - - Ruth Ann Dikeman Secretary-Treasurer - - - Helen June Johnson qaculiff rqafuum Miss Helen Miller Felt fishes, red hearts, furry dogs, leather footballs - am I in a notion shop?

Even the boys bought "Gloria Vanderbilt Hearts", 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 February, the boys visited Bethlehem Steel Corpora- ation in Lackawanna, and the girls spent a very interesting day at Mil- lard Fillmore Hospital in Buffalo. In April, we visited the Observa- tory of the Astronomers' Cxuild in Jamestown. We also plan to attend the Annual Western Zone Science Congress held in the Museum of Science, where, last year, Edward Blom was awarded a gold medal and Fredonia High School a gold cup for the presentation of the outstand- ing paper.

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 , . .

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.

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.

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. fifty-two Baia alla- W Uffam President - - - - Jack Radloff Vice President - Lynn Button Secretary - Orville Sherman Treasurer ----- Donald Sidey aww, fdcdauea Mr. George Belden 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.

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. fifty-four fbaamwiic glad 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. They haue their exits and their entrances And one man in his time plays many parts." fifty-fiu 1 6 GM mm President - ---- Roger Heppell Vice President - Jean Morse Secretary - - Jeanne Hovey Treasurer ----- Donald Aldrich -'ilwaliq Aadwzma Miss Clara Hazelton Miss Helen Miller 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. A backward glance assures us that l939-40 has been a most profitable year. 4 fifty-six Ufficm Secretary-Treasurer - - - Newton Huntley Qaoulfq rqcfaielwa Mr. George W. Belden 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. xi J I fifl Lf-seven 'ggfvl-oL7'w .A ff'-'-' on -. l.

Moore 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. In a touchdown-studded game, Silver Creek managed to keep ahead school have engaged in competition. Our traditional battle with u kirk was played on a "traditionally" wet field. We held the " " for the duration of the first quarter, but Dunkirk's touchdo ns elled defeat for Fredonia 25-O.

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. MQ' f Spell!! Physical Director Mrs. Mildred Hunt 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.
