This Annual is a report of your
schoolg of its organization, its
achievements, its ideals and its hopes.
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.
MR. ANDREW C. BEAM
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
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.
'Symbols of our common objective: to perpetuate
strength and Unity for free people." K

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-
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.

THE 1953 GATEWAY
It is doubtful whether any group assembled for an
exacting task as that of publishing a yearbook could man-
age to have as many good times as we have had in this
past year . . . lfsing the talents and time of many seniors
as well as faculty members and working together as under
one roof we have tried to prove an equal to those books
presented before this and to perhaps even surpass them
with the few improvements possible . . . We offer our heart-
felt thanks and gratitude to the many other students who
contributed their services, and to the many teachers who
so diligently helped us.

On the serious side our accom-
plishments this year included in-
creased subscriptiong increased
content, silk screen covers in
several colorsg and clearer type. 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.

to Springville in the last game.
The quarterhacking was ably done by Ray Suto and Dick Percy. The

I. V. SOCCER
The real scoring power of the
J. V.'s came from the front line
of J. Piniewski, A. Colafranceschi,
D. Crabtree, and K. Sickau. The
defensive stars were J. Bus, D.
Bushnell, P. Ludlow, and Goalie, J. Do-
linar. Many of these boys were playing for
the first time, and their willingness to play
made up for their inexperience. By the
seasons end the team had learned to func-
tion as a unit, and while being limited to
only four victories, had held the opposition
to three wins and three ties.
The J. V. Soccer team ended the season
with a four win, three losses, three tie
record. Freshmen and Sophomores made
up the greater part of the squad, and the

The 1952-53 edition of the cage five though weakened by the
graduation losses of Bill Firth, Bill Brogan and Carm Morrano
from the 51-52 Section V1 champions has come through in fine
style with a record of seven wins and one loss at the halfway
point in the season. Probably the highlights of the season at this
writing have been the two line victories over Hamburg High
School. Other victories have been over Orchard Park, Eden,
Holland, North Collins and Lake Shore the lone defeat came at
the hands of a fine Amherst team.
The team has been led by Capt. Vince Yacabacci, who has
had able assistance from such stalwarts as Ray Ernewein, Hank

OR VARSITY BASKETBALL
The J. V. basketball team although off to a rather inauspicious start has shown
a gradual improvement not only in individual play but in the all important team play.
Several players have looked exceptionally well and will probably be playing with
the varsity in the coming years.
lt is hoped that with more experience several more players can be developed to
the point where they may eventually replace graduating varsity players.
