FREDONIA HIGH SCHOOL
FREDONIA, NEW YORK
illliElllUlllJ and llfllllllillllil
In these days of total war, no annual would be complete without
some thought of the men and women who are fighting on far-flung
It seems only fitting and appropriate, then, that we dedicate our
senior yearbook to the students and teachers defending and serving
their country as they have served before in school,
They are of our geneation - they fight, and sacrifice their per-
sonal desires, to keep alive the things we cherish. lt is such things -
memories of school years, a happiness and a way of living, shared with
their fellows - which will ever serve as a spur to them.
Each age has had its ideals, each war has had its heroes. Many
have been the statues, buildings, poems and other works completed in
honor of these men and ideals. None, no matter how great or how
small, has been dedicated with any more respect, honor, and love
than we give with this dedication to you - living and dead -
The men and women ot our Armed Forces,
Just as the hills will echo and re-echo your praises, so will our
voices and the voices of those who read this book be raised in proud
salute to you!
So Proudly We Hail .
Lest We Forget ....

We dedicate our book to all of those
Who courageously answered our country's call,
But to our three boys special tribute goes
For they're part of us and we love them all.
They left their homes for the horrors of war,
Their loving parents, their church and the school,
Picnics and dances, and friends by the score,
The basket-ball court and the drug-store stool:
Leaving these things which had once seemed trifles
The hang-out, the gang, and familiar sights,
Laying down pencils, shouldering rifles
They sacrifice youth to defend our rights:
Though they long to return, they're fighting yet.
Pause often and think of them. Lest We Forget,
- Valerie Schoener, Class of I945
O'er all Fredonia towering high
Stands our noble high school that
We all have learned to love

The aim of the National Honor Society is to make good citizenship in high
schools a matter ot distinction, Those students who rank in the upper third of their
classes are eligible tor membership in the society so it is inevitable that the leaders
come from those who ranlc high in mentality and achievement. But the National
Honor Society is more than an association of students of high scholastic attainments.
lt also aims to stimulate the character, scholarship, leadership, and service of the
students ot the secondary schools of this country.
In the latter part of February, the faculty chose ten new members, - six
senior members and four junior members who were inducted at a special chapel
program. In order to make all pupils of the school aware ot the primary aims at
the Society, impressive rituals ot induction have been established. This year, as
in the past, the olticers of our school chapter used an elaborate "tapping" ceremony
which was acclaimed the most impressive program of the year,
and near We hear the

The past few years have seen many changes
in high school life. Because of the war the tempo
of things has greatly increased. l-ligh school
students find an increasingly great number of
tasks to perform, duties to be done. We are learn-
ing to be fighters in a world of war and preparing
to be good citizens in a world at peace
This is a stupendous task, and one which we
could never accomplish, if it were not for the guid-
ance and ever present assistance of our friends,
the faculty of F. l-l. S. We will always remember
you with the deepest gratitude.
From where we slond, lcxnguogo

we were to take part during the coming four years. Gradually we become customer!
to this world and we expect to accomplish much before leaving F.H.S. '-

BESSlE C. HANISER, Adviser
A volley of Thundering voices, a fist pounding the desk to emphasize the words
of a boisterous speaker, yes, it's the seniors again! These frequent noon-hour discussions
on politics, religion, etc., are carried on with such enthusiasm that one would think all
the world's problems were being solved in Room 37.
This year's senior class is just one big happy family. Although an unusually small
group, they have demonstrated their ambition and enthusiasm by breaking all records
set by former classes. lnspired bythe drive of their adviser, they sold amazing numbers
of Christmas cards, magazines and "Hilltopper" subscriptions. They also produced the
first senior play ever presented in F.l-l.S., one that will long be remembered as a most
hilarious, entertaining three-act comedy.
The class of '45 unwillingly relinquishes its place to make way for another.
Throughout their lives, the members of this class will cherish memories of a school they'll ,l . 3

Regular school work is important, true, - but what
would high school be without National Forensic League,
l-li-Y, On-the-l-lill and the many other clubs which form
anv student's extra-curricular lite. .
Just as pictured opposite, very often have we stood
before the bulletin board to read ot the latest activities in
the various clubs. With what excitement did we await
the announcement ot the actors in the senior play, what
a thrill when we read our own name on the list of newly-
elected Sea Scouts.
Trulv will the voices of these clubs echo in each life.

The year i945 has seen many new additions to the activities in FHS. Not the least
Ol these is the reorganized Athletic Council. We have sports, it is true, and our inteiest
has been greatg nevertheless, we feel that the reorganization of the Athletic Council
will foster greater interest in athletics,
One of the most important actions of the Athletic Council this year was the es-
tablishment of a new set of rules governing participation in athletics. These rules are
much the same as our previous ones, with one exception: the new scholastic requirements.
This clause states that no student is eligible tor sports who does not maintain an average
of 75W in three subiects. Also, all post-graduates must carry at least four school units
and physical education regularly to be eligible.
The aim ot the Athletic Council is to maintain scholarship as well as athletic abil-
ity. The first year's work has set a firm foundation. lvlay the good work continue.

Dependability, co-operation, and promptness are all traits of the i945 staff ot
"On-the-Hill", our school newspaper which is published in a special section ot the weekly
town paper, "The Censoru. This years senior class has displayed such interest in working
on the paper that it has been necessary to have two separate staffs.
Practical and valuable experience has been obtained by all members of the staff.
Each member has learned that he must be depended upon to report all school activities
clearly and accurately. I-le realizes that co-operation and Teamwork are necessary to
carry on the work of a good newspaper. And finally, he has learned the importance
of having one's articles in on time, tor every newspaper must meet its "deodIine".

Although its activities have been limited by many difficulties brought on by the
war, the National Forensic League continues to function in Fredonia High School. In
debate the members have carried on by holding Intramural debates and by appearing
before several of our Service Clubs. In addition the members have also been keynote
speakers at Community Clubs and local branches of National Organizations.
No write-up for Fredonia's chapter of the National Forsenic League would be
complete without a mention of the Sectional and State Tournaments in which we took
part. Fredonia's participants won first place in the sectional meet in oll contests. This
made us eligible for the State championship contests at Poughkeepsie, New York in

The Aviation Club promotes the construction of model aircraft and the study ot
the world's aircratt. During the present war the standard of military aircraft has been
raised considerably and the club has kept in step with the latest trends.
The club's model engine has been repaired and is novv in excellent running order,
It is hoped that the engine vvill soon be installed in the club's large flying model.
The activities ot the club have been somewhat restricted this year because ot the
lack of a suitable meeting night, but, in spite ot this, the club has accomplished much,
such as the repairing of the engine mentioned above.

lf you happen to look through the door of room twenty-three the first period on
a Wednesday morning, you will see a group of freshman girls at work. They are the
members of the Dragon Lily Club.
In this club, the members take turns at being on the program committee for the
week. The programs, which take place after a formal meeting, consist of recitations or
dramatizations. These give the girls a chance to get accustomed to speaking in front
of a group, gain self-confidence in this field, and to learn parliamentary law.
During the Hilltopper picture week we had a memorable experience when, on
looking at the schedule for the picture, we discovered that we were being called the
Dragon Fly Club in place of our selected name.
We have been given a chance to display our talents in many ways, and have
tent some of our best rhymes for competition with others from New York State to a maga-
zine in Albany which will publish the best.

The Sea Scout Ship Falcon ll, only Senior Scout unit in Fredonia, was organized
in the late summer of TQ44, and is now under the sponsorship of Trinity Episcopal Church.
The basic principles of the Sea Scout program are to teach the Sea Scout to
care for himself and others on or near the water, to help him become a better citizen
to give him the opportunity to serve his community, and to fill his social program.
Sea scouting embodies extensive training in personal safety, covering such phases
as First Aid, swimming, life saving, personal health, cooking, and water safety. Mari-
time training includes communications, canvas and rope work, rigging, and boat-build
ing and repair
Although activities are largely confined to dry-land ship, eacl. man receives in'-
struction in navigation, piloting and weather forecasting-all preparatory to summer's
While the uniform closely resembles that of the United States Navy, the program
is completely non-military. Drill and discipline are included only to develop the Sea
Scout's sense of responsibility to himself and to others.

BOYS' AND GIRLS' G-LEE CLUBS - MIXED CHORUS
One ot the greatest musical experiences is that of participation in large choral
groups. Proof of that statement may be found in the increasing number of students who
each year seek admission to the various choral organizations of the music department.
This year the personnel of each group has been enlarged in order that a greater number
ot students might enjoy the benefits ot such organizations.
The boys' glee club, girls' glee club and mixed chorus ioined in presenting ci
Christmas assembly concert which vvill long be remembered by all of us. The mixed
chorus assistea the students of Barker and Eagle Street Schools in the presenlation ot
the pageant "America's Music" on November 2. The boys' glee club proved its
ability when it assisted the band at its annual spring concert April 27. On May 25 the
girls' glee club presented its annual concert. Our groups participated in the Festival
held at Fredonia State Teaches College, May 4 and 5,

The basketeers of Fredonia l-ligh school struggled Through a rough season to
emerge with nine victories and eight defeats, Only two of these victories were in league
The most notable quality of the team was their undying spirit and their "One ici
all and all tor one" attitude.
Edward Dailey, center, took the individual scoring record, running up a total of
T56 points. He also was high individual scorer tor one game when he scored 25 points
The maiority ot this year's varsity will be back "on the hill" next year to sink
the goals for Fredonia.
Other sports this year were baseball, which has been absent for many years,
intermural basketball and bowling, ping pong, inter-class track events, and volley ball.

The Leaders' Club was re-organized this year, under the supervision of Mrs.
popularity vote. Varsity cheerleaders were also included in this group. Letters were
Evarts, to include all girls who had won two letters in after-school sports instead of by
purchased for girls who took part in athletic activities. Fredonia and Dunkirk girls ex-
changed play days and this practice promoted friendships as well as good sportsmanship.
T The girls ot Fredonia High have again enioyed the interclass and intramural
sports competition. Basketball, which seems to be the most popular indoor sport, has
Cb built up the sportsmanship, co-operation ,and team work of everyone. Sports that they
-Q participated in were volley ball, baseball and soccer ball. Bowling and archery have
5 'R Seen added to the selection ot athletic activities to be enjoyed by all interested girls.
The pretty and original cheerleaders of the '44-'45 season have tremendously
roved school spirit. The varsity squad added many new cheers to our already long
eg list Th gh their untirung, unseltish, and loyal eftorts, F. H. S. has come through
ith fl ing lors. We thank them for their inspiring enthusiasm and "never give up"
as 'rit. r, Jacqueline Augrum, and Carolyn Warn, promising new cheer-
