Untilthis year, the last issue of the newspaper was done in yearbook for- mat. Because of centralization it was necessary to publish a book for the entire district--thus The Frontierian. The staff has done its utmost to put between two covers all the prec- ious memories only school can pro- vide. Students and advisors from the two high schools have worked diligent- ly to make this edition a treasure of those unforgettable days.

HEIMAN Co-Principal of Administration CENTRALIZING The organizing of Frontier Central has brought together for the first time many communities for the purpose ofgiving to all ofthe children of the area equal as well as greater educational opportunities. The task of unifying must be approached in the spirit of mutual cooperation, eachwith a thorough understanding of the related situations. Conclusions must be tempered with patience and progress must be made slowly. This procedure applies not only to the administra- tion, the faculty and the Board ofEducation, but equally as well to every organization and to every individual in the area. The students can and will contribute much to the real job of "centralizing" if they, too, will be patient, will attempt to understand fellow students, and will be willing to work with them. It has often been said that a chain is not stronger than its weakest link. Those links to which we refer, we must repeat, are PATIENCE, COOPERATION, and MUTUAL UNDERSTANDlNG.Theymustbe continually strengthened.

Blasdell 53 JUNIOR ACTIVITIES This year the Junior Class started out with an overwhelming success, the Sadie Hawkins Dance. Girls made vegetable corsages for their "dates" and the race held Dog Patch style entertained everyone. Girls who didn't catcha beau at the dance were given a second chance when the Leap Year dance was held N fi :stat The last dance the Juniors sponsored was the traditional Junior-Senior prom in a setting of soft lights, softer music and frothy dresses. However the class did not "dance" its way ' ' ' throughout the whole year. Candy was sold to help pay for the television set, source of manyfine ' programs. In the late spring, the Juniors enter- tained the Seniors at a picnic. The class was very pleased to have so many " J -,1 , Juniors take part in athleticsjrnusicals, and other activities.

Woodlawn 3 The Class of '53 enjoyed a happy and busy year. Many problems arose, but were easily solved. The responsibilities included the presenting of the Junior- Senior Prom, with its soft lights and smooth music, the purchasing of class ringsg and the building up of their treasury . A baked goods sale,a dance and the collection of dues were the various ways in which they increased the funds. In the midst of all this, the Juniors did find time for a class party. Excitement runs high as the members of this class anticipate the activities of their Senior year. JOLLY JUNIORS ..

O i Blasdell 54 Sweaters, skirts and slacks were the mode at an afternoon Sports's Dance held by the Sophomores Jan- uary ll. It was a new experience for the students to stow their books in their ,lockers and cavort gaily about the gym to the accomplished music renderedby four of their classmates. In April, an evening dance was enjoyed by all who attended. Dignity was tossed to the balm wind as the mem- bers ofthe class capered at Chestnut Ridge to work up an appetite for sizzling hot-dogs, tasty potato salads, delicious cakes and long, coo'l cokes--a WOU- derful picnic to close their vear's activities. 1 SOPHS DO WORK 34 Back Row- Richard Clark, Ronald Howe, Donald Spencer, Joel Bus, George Plarr, Gladys Van Buskirk, Joseph Louvam, Linda Ward, Vincent Miller, Neil Carpentier, Gordon Poecking, Donald Jasuira, Ray- mond Goodrich.

As we close another year, we anxiously look forward to the next, guided as always by our motto borrowed from Edgar Guest: Somebody said it cou1dn't be done, But we with a chuckle replied That "maybe it cou1dn't, but we would be the ones Who wouldn't say so till we tried.

O i 5 A MLS FR ONTIER ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS Frontier Elementary students are housed in eight school buildings. These vary from the one-room school ofAmsdell to the larger schools such as Blas- dell. Woodlawn. al1dWanakahin which many grades have two classes. Many of these schools have well equipped cafeterias. I I LUNCH TIME , E 5' s- .m MAPS CAN BE FUN Amsdellschool has only one teacher who is also the principal. Athol Springs is a very attractive building whichfacesCampRoad. Recently, a brick addition was made to Big Tree School which is lo- cated at the corner of South Park Avenue and Bay ViewRoad. Blasdell'sElementarySchool, onArthur Avenue, was built in 1911 and a brick addition made in l925. Lake View School, originally two rooms, andbuilt otwoodwas built in the late 1800's but now has had additions made to better accomodate the number of pupils. Shaleton is a four room building on Heltz Road. Plans are being made to build a new school to replace this one. Located on Lake Shore Road, Wanakah School was built on the SOCIAL ST UDIES PR OJECT "ml WELC OME VISIT OR early site of a one room log.cabin, probably built in 1800. The Indian name "Wanakah" is very appropriate for it means "Beautiful Land by the Water," Woodlawn School for elementary grades is on Lake Shore Road. - -ip vt' V3 we 9-'V I ASSEMBLY PR OGRAM The district owns 'five buses and contracted six others totransportthe students of all these schools. The routes thatwere taken made a very complicated system but made it possible for pupils living great distances from schools to have transportation sup- plied to them.

Several organizations both instrumental and vocal give many students opportunities to develop their talents and entertain their parents and friends on various occa- sions. Both high school bands were represented in the Fire Prevention Parade early in the fall. Agratify- ing number of students were selected from the bands and choruses to take part in the annual Erie County Music All High Concert and another highlight ofthe year was the annual District Music Festival. In Februarythe Blasdell Music Department gave a musical comedy "The Hither and Thither of Danny Dither. " On March 14, the Woodlawn Music Organizations presented the annual spring concert. After a year of performing for school assembly programs and P. T. A. meetings the various organ- izations closed the yearis activities with music for graduation exercises.

Staff members enjoy seeing the genius of a facile pen in print. WANAKAN With the publication of the Graduation number of the Wanakan for this year, the magazine of Wana- kah School will have completed fourteen years of publication. Due to various circumstances the num- ber of issues each year has varied. However, there is now a general history of the school from 1938-1952, not to mention bits of earlier history which were gathered in 1950. Annual features have been the poetry and story contests. The seventh and eighth graders have had an opportunity to ,par- ticipate in a high school type of activity which has been an asset as they have gone onto other schools. WOODLAWNIAN "The Woodlawnian"--- the school paper repre- sented hard work and effort. The reporters buzz- ed around like bees in search of interesting news items. The typists had the long tedious task of putting all the material together and running it off the press. The art workers, of course, helpedwith clever covers and illustrations to make the public- ations attractive. In fact, the entire staff lent a hand in order to put an interesting school paper into the hands of the appreciative student body. It was apleasure for all of us to help with the public- ation of this year's four issues. Our sincere appre- ciation went to Miss Mittman, Mr. Moore, and Mrs. Borkan for their able guidance.

BULLETINETTE This year marks the fifteenth anniversary of the Bulletinette, the Blasdell High School news- paper. In February 1938, a staff of eight Fresh- men organized to publish a four page newspaper to keep the school informed of their various school activities. ltwas namedtheFreshmen Bulletinette. Because this paper was so enthusiastically re- ceived by the student body, faculty, and Mr. Charles Buesch, Principal, it was continued under the name, Blasdell Bulletinette, and news from the school included. By l94l the paper had grown to a twelve page edition with a cover. It not only informed parents of the various school activities, but kept the school departments in contact with each other. Miss Elma Titus, Freshman English teacher was the advisor. During World War ll, as well as at the present time, the paper was sent free to all the boys in service who had attended Blasdell School. The many letters from these boys showed how much this was and still is appreciated. Two hundred and fifty schools belonging to the New York State Empire School Press Association send copies of their papers to be judged in Syra- cuse. The Bulletinette has earned an"All New York" 52 rating.for the past four years and in 1950-51, having attained the highest possible rating, the school was awarded the Adelaide Woodruff Memorial Plaque. This year the Frontier Central Board of Edu- cation sent to the Press Convention held in Syra- cuse, the following delegates: Mr. Et Mrs. A. Dunk- lin, Mrs. L. Borkan, Marlene Heil and James Frisca from Woodlawn, MissE. Titus, Mrs. I... Law son, SylviaStoklosa and Eugene Kraus from Blas- dell. The delegates were very proud when Miss E. Titus was selected Vice President of the Press Association. The National Quill Sz Scroll society rated the Bulletinette third highest in the mimeographed mag- azine section in l950-51. For several years Miss Titus had taken pictures of classes and various activities to be published in the last issues -of the paper because Blasdell had no Yearbook. This year the Bulletinette discontin- uedthe pictures and cooperated with the Frontier- ian in the yearbook project. The Bulletinette pledged its continued support to the yearbook. With the capable assistance of Miss G: Her- rick in typing and Mrs. J. Wing in mimeographing, and the faithful encouragement ofMiss Pray and Mr. Buesch, the Bulletinette looks forward to many successful years.

NS VARSITY FOOTBALL I The two high, schools in the Frontier Central School marched 'along together to a victorious football season. Forming a composite team from Blasdell andwoodlawn gave the students a chance to work and play together. Mr. Charles Mead and Mr. Serafino Grot- tanelli pr :ved their capability by leading the teams toa completely victorious season. Bill Brogan from Blasdell and John Roman- owski from Woodlawn proved their prowess with the pigskinandbecame high scdrers for the sea- son. ' - Albion almost tippedthe team off the victory pedestal but Frontier rallied and won by a sin- gle touchdown.

SOCCER lk lk lk Outstanding team spirit and "will to win" proved the outstanding factor in the Frontier Central Soccer teams victories over many of their favored opponents. The first two games of the season saw Holland emerg- ing with a victory in the first game and -the Frontiers- men fighting back in the last seconds to stave off de- feat and secure a tie with the same team. Two ofthe closest and most exciting games of the season were playedwith Amherst Central. Frontier emerged' vic- torious over visiting Amherst, 3-Z, and in turn was edged, Z-l, at Amherst. Arch rival Orchard Park alsoprovided thrilling -competition with Frontier win- ning both fiercely contested games. Frontier also de- feated Gow twice to finish a very successful season.
