It is a lasting record of your school life together at Frontier Central. Thus, in the future, it will serve as HTHE GATEWAY" to those many enjoyable times those many unforgetable memories that you will always cherish. However, it is much more than that. Frontier, although a small part of an in- ternational frontier, is symbolic of the kind of boundary for which all the world is striving-a boundary that substitues cooperation and understanding for fortifications and battlefields. HTHE CATEWAYT to that kind of frontier is the dream of all man- kind and only so long as such gateways can be kept open by freedom-loving men, can there be any hope for future world peace. Thus you can, indeed be proud of the selection of the name "The Catewayw for your Annual not merely because of geographical and historical significance but rather because of the symbol of hope it holds for all of us. CGNTENTS 3 Administration Seniors Classes Activities . Sports ..... Auxiliary ..... MR. ANDREW C. BEAM IN MEMORIHM Andrew C. Beam joined the community of Yvoodlawn in the year 1929. He came here a stranger to most of us. He came to fill the position of Principal of the Woodlawn Union Free School. None of us even remotely guessed at that time what his role was to be in the mighty drama that was to unfold in the succeeding twenty three years. In that eventful quarter of a century, he helped to determine the destiny of a large part of the educational pattern of the County of Erie through his untiring effort to bring about such centralizations of schools as Alden Central, West Seneca Central, and our own Frontier Central. ln his own chosen community he stood out as a leader of fine ability, actively participating in and giving leadership to such organizations as the Boy Scouts, The Church of Christ and the Fire Department. Our feeble utterances here will very soon be forgotten but Mr. Beam's deeds have been written indelibly on the pages of our local history. 4 MIN ISTRATIO 'Symbols of our common objective: to perpetuate strength and Unity for free people." K Q 4 VERNON W. HEIMAN Co-Principal of Administration Mr. Vernon Heiman is Co-Principal for administration in the Frontier Central School system. Mr. Heiman's experience has been var- ied. He taught one year in a district school then he spent four years in Almond where he was Social Studies teacher as well as vice-principal. From Almond he went to Scio in the capacity of principal. He left Scio in 1936 to become principal of Woodlawn High School. The registration then was 408. Today the registration in Woodlawn is 658. Registration in Frontier Central is 2890. Mr. Heiman is a graduate of Alfred University. He has done graduate work at Columbia University and at the Univer- sity of Buffalo. CHARLES G. BUESCH Co-Principal of Instruction Mr. Charles G. Buesch is Co-Principal, with Mr. Heiman of the entire Frontier Central School system. Before coming to Blasdell as Supervis- ing Principal in 1934, he was Science In- structor at Hamburg High School.

BLHSDELL The class of '56 has a member- ship of eighty-one. Choosing elective subjects was a serious responsibility for most of us, as it is the beginning of the training for our careers. The boys formed a Freshman basketball team which we were very proud of. Nancy, Kay and Jeanette helped to keep up the teams' spirits with their fine cheer- leading. Mr. Crottanelli has been a good pal to all of us and even obliged by playing Santa Claus at our Christmas party. That was our first eve- ning party and we are looking forward to many more. We waded through the novel ulvanhoew and most of the booklets were well written.

We strove to maintain a quality of ex- cellence in each issue and to bring readers a paper which was truly usec- ond to none". On the lighter side we managed to dub several noble persons uwashers of the stencils", to have the mimeo- graph machine overhauled, to break the glass on the mimeoscope, use more ink than Carter has pills, be- come nervous wrecks on Press Day, form a chain gang for assembly, and have more fun than people. THE BULLETINETTE The Blasdell Bulletinette Staff is composed of forty members: Henry Zak as Editor and the Misses Geral- dine Herrick and Elma Titus as Ad- Visors. ln October 1952, Miss Titus, An- drew Kuszak and Sue Taleff went to the Empire State School Press Con- ference in Syracuse.
