B0 RD of EDUCATIO
For four years, nine members of the Frontier Central Board of Educa-
tion have united their efforts to advance the educational facilities of the
Frontier Central School district. Two of their dreams arc nearing realiza-
tion, and soon the students will have these new i'Frontiers" opened to
them: the Pinehurst Elementary School and lhe Frontier Junior-Senior
The hours which these members have spent in bringing about these
new buildings, new courses of study, and new co-curricular activities can-
not be counted, but will always be appreciated by every student who has
the opportunity to attend these beautiful schools.
The Members of the Board have willingly given of their time and
effort in an attempt to make Frontier Central the educational stage for all
students of the District. ln return, the Staff wishes to assure the members
that the students, as players, will put forth their best efforts to "exit"
better citizens than they were at their uentraricev.

Twelve years ago this all began
When these nine into Woodlawn Grade School ran:
Hester Croakman, Lorraine Bozegh, Dorothy Hush,
Shirley Ochaske, Dawn Coodheart, Carol Carmodyg
Barbara Meyers, Russell Cheney, Michael Levor-
Day by day they learned, and in 1943 earned
lA Kindergarten diplomal
Our number had grown by 749,
When these three pupils fell in line:
Kenneth Sickau, Beverly Brakowiecki, and
Scholars, alliabout sixth grade graduation
While some of our classmates chose to drop out.
By 751 it w as time to whirl,
For Freshman Dance to select a girl.
Then, not to allow finances to baffle,
We busied ourselves with a turkey raffle.
Sophomores seek the light fantastic toe,
And so to the Autumn Nocturne we go.
To Miss Creedon and Miss Faturos
We owe our social graces,
For in parties and in picnics
They put us through our paces,
Upperclassmen, unusually alive
We did not scorn the popular jivcfzf
'LAutunm Whirll' we chose to call
The dance delighting us that Fall.
We did many things to numerous to mention
But Prom and rings engaged top attention.
The Senior 4'Kick-off" was tops,
For the play "Junior Prom" we had all the props.
Next, for our senior pictures to wait,
And for Senior Prom-to stay out real late.
Exams, did you say? the day of reckoning,
Enthusiastic Seniors could see it beckonin
Beyond, we saw the graduation page,
ln our education a glorious stage.
Athletics, skills, friendships, power.
Woodlawn High had these to shower,
Teachers, students, dances-fond memories will give
To us of '55, wherever we live.

Senior Class History
Our Senior year began on September 8, 1954-
That was to speed by in an incredibly short time.
We chose our officers with p1'ide-
'flakef' and "Ray," and "Phil," and HBob,'7
They had proven themselves in our ,lunior year
As the very best in class officers.
Our class colors were purple and white-
As kingly as the position that we occupied
in B. H. S.
Beautiful rings were chosen, as a symbol
Of our class and of our graduation.
We gave a dance-the annual Football Dance-
To start the annual social season right.
Our year was marked with parties, Christmas
There were parties to make dance decorations-
ln all truth, they really proved to be
A glorious excuse for having a small riot.
It w asn't really a very long time
Before Christmas vacation had come a11d gone
And then January exams were upon us.
Close upon the heels of exams came the thrill
That is the prize the Senior year.
Our play-"The Perfect ldiot"-with
More work and play rolled into one bundle
Than is possible to imagine.
Who will ever forget Mr. Latlmerby and his
Or Rhodora, the Tenny sons' philosophical maid?
Our Prom was the great social event of the season.
The gymnasium was beautifully decorated
And elegant evening gowns transformed the girls
lnto breath-taking visions of loveliness.
It was a solemn lnoment in June when we
Took down our banner from the stage on
We, the Seniors of 1955. last to graduate
from B. l'l. S.,
Numbered exactly forty-nine. By coincidence,
We were also the forty-ninth graduating class.
Last. and greatest of all, came graduation.
Sadness at leaving school was overcome by the joy
ln realizing that we had come to a long-sought goal.
As we reached that goal, may each and every
Senior of l955 reach his future goals with
The same happiness and good fortune that
Our class history.

TIIE GATE AY for 1955
The publication of the Gateway has
been a rewarding experience because
it has involved surmounting obstacles
inherent in the collection of data
from many separate schools. The
staff has brought you, in pictures and
in writing, the 1954-55 story of
school life at Frontier Central. We
hope that you will assign to this
record a very prominent place among
To the faculty, students, and or-
ganizations who have contributed so
effectively to the success of this An-

Hail the Woodlawnian! A fortunate and unfailing combination of toil, nervous ex-
haustion, hilarity, and ink spots! The press room is a beehive of activity, in fact, to
the casual visitor, the noise might seem deafening. However, the finished product is
a source of great satisfaction to the hurried and harried staff. We try, each year, to
expand and improve the publication. This year, our efforts assumed the form of a new
We treasure the practical experience derived from this cooperative project in Wood-V
lawn High School, for it is experience concerning both journalism and teamwork.
As the ink dries on the last copy of the Woodlawnian, as such, the staff looks forward
to bigger and better journalism in the new Frontier Central School.

The first issue of the Bulletinette was published on February, 16, 1938, as a Fresh-
man paper, and consisted of four pages. ln 1939, the paper was expanded to cover
the news of the entire school. A cover and title page was added in 194-1.
The paper,s fame and popularity steadily increased until, today, it is eagerly await-
ed, and purchased by nearly every student in the school.
The Bulletinette, which has won many awards for outsanding work, owes its suc-
cess chiefly to Miss Elma Titus, Miss Ruth Pray, Mr. Charles Buesch, and the former

HIGH SCHOOL MUSIC
Music at Woodlawn has shown a steady growth since the music department was organized back
in '29, It long since outgrew its room accommodations, and large group rehearsals are held in the
Music is a required subject twice a week in grades 7 and 8. Any boy or girl with aptitude and inter-
est can learn to play an instrument. Students with vocal interests are permitted to sing in the larger
chorus groups on special schedule. Selected singers from the Junior High participated in the Junior
Choir concert at Kleinhans on March 20, sponsored by the Erie County Music Educators Association.
A group of eighth graders also contributed a special number on the Christmas assembly program.
High school music students interested in serious music study, may take the Rudiments and Har-
mony courses, leading to a music major. Participation in the Wood-
lawn Rehearsal Band is open to anyone who can qualify. Rehearsals
are held twice a week, for 45 minutes each. The Assembly Band is
selected from this group to play for assembly and special occasions.
Competition music is studied by selected band members in pre-
paration for Spring concerts. It is hoped that selected players from
both Blasdell and Woodlawn High Schools will blaze the trail for a
Frontier Concert Band.
The high school mixed chorus gave a Christmas program that will
long be remembered for its soloists and format. Selected voices from
this group sang in the All-State chorus at Fredonia, in November,
and in the Erie County All-High chorus concert on April 2, 1955,
at the Maryvale High School.
The Woodlawn music students eagerly look forward to better
practice and rehearsal facilities in the new building, thus fulfilling
64 il ' '
ly the dream of "an enrichment of life through music."

HIGH SCHOOL MUSIC
Music, under the capable direction of Mrs. Simon, comprises part of the sched-
ule of the majority of students at Blasdell High School.
The Mixed Chorus is open to any interested student from grades nine through
twelve. This group meets twice a week and performs at assemblies and programs
of various kinds. All types of music are sung. The combined efforts of the
Chorus and the Glee Club gave the memorable Christmas Program. Some of
the more experienced singers are chosen for the Advanced Choir which prac-
tices once a week, and performs music of a higher calibre as to division and
difficulty of parts. The Junior High Chorus is the training ground for the Mixed
The Clee Club at Blasdell High School is composed of forty girls. This group
sings classical and semi-classical music and performs in musicals and at as-
semblies. Selections are both accompanied and sung a cappella. Their aim is
to develop better voice qualities and to undertake the study of the intricacies of
good vocal production. The highlight of the year is the Spring Competition for
which the girls have eagerly prepared.

The High School Band meets twice a week and membership is open to any senior
high school student depending on his ability to perform. This organization enters the
competition festivals in the Spring for a rating according to other schools in Western
New York. From the nucleus of our present band will evolve the marching band for
athletic events and a concert band for assemblies and programs.
Members of any high school music organization are eligible to enter the Erie County
Chorus, Band, or Orchestra, and certain groups, are also eligible to enter for place-
ment in the corresponding All-State groups. As the Blasdell High School music stu-
dents complete another successful year, they are indeed striving to help organize an
excellent music department for the future Frontier Central School and in this manner
definitely comply to make it "A Dream Come Truef,

The Varsity Football team of '55, coached by Mr.
Mead and Mr. Grottanelli, was beset by bad luck
in the form of injuries for most of the year. ln
the first game of the season, Rosario Bonfessuto
suffered a broken ankle. Don Fredriksen received a
broken finger in the Williamsville game. Robert
Wardell also twisted his knee and was out for the
rest of the season. Gerard Durward was injured in
the game with East Aurora and Jake Burger and MR- SAKOWSKI
Glenn Mead received fractured noses while George Coach
Maue received facial lacerations. Although the team
was badly crippled,they fought hard and clean. In
spite of low scores, the main goal of sportsmanship
was maintained throughout the year.
Some of the outstanding players were: Gerald
Burger, who received L'All High Award" as a
guard, Glenn Mead, Don Fredriksen, Pat Carosa,
Bob Percy, Alan Evans, Gerard Durward, Paul
Ludlow, Russell Cheney, Henry Puleo, Larry Bal-
lagh, George Devisser, and George Maue.

" team, many playing for the first season. Outstanding
on defense were Ron Scheffler, Ray Scheffler, and
John Piniewski. While on offense, Ken Sickau,
Frank De Backer, Doug Bushnell, and Gene Ruch-
alski were leading scorers.
The Junior Varsity, coached by-. Robert Walsh,
showed great promise. The experience gained dur-
ing the past season should be of great assistance
in the coming year. These players, plus the return-

contender next season.

The 1954-55 edition of the Frontier cagers fin-
ished the season with an overall record of 5 wins
and 11 losses. In the 16 game season they lost
twice to undefeated Amherst, East Aurora and De-
pew, and split the season's series with Hamburg,
Orchard Park, West Seneca, Cleveland Hill, and
The majority of the games were close and ex-
citing with the issue in doubt until the very end.
The seasonis high spots for followers of the team
were: the thrilling win at Hamburg after losing to
that team on our home floor, the fine last second
overtime win at Cleveland Hill on Henry Pule0's
clutch set shot, the overtime loss to Depew after
that same team had won easily on their own court,
and the last second win over a fine West Seneca
Team at Blasdell.
Nine seniors played their last game and will be
sorely missed next year. They are Capt. Don Fred-

The 1954 baseball team representing Frontier Central was conceded
by competent observers, to be one of the finest high school nines in the
state. They finished the season with a record of 17 wins and 2 losses while
winning the championship of the Erie County lnterscholastic League as
well as the "A" championship of Section Six of New York State. In the
four sectional games against Clarence Central Cleveland Hill, Lewiston
Porter and Salamanca they scored a total of 30 runs while holding the
opposition to a combined total of 40 runs.
Memories of this fine season will linger long for those who watched as
well as the players themselves. Who will forget the fine play of Co-cap-
tains Gene Seidleck and Stan F igiel or the two stalwart moundsmen, fire-
balling Richie Clark and diminutive Dick Graf? Probably the game most
fans will remember was the 5-4 win over Amherst, on homeruns in the
last inning by Henry Puleo and Ray Scheffler.
The seniors who played their last game will be sorely missed next
year. They are Gene Seidleck, Stan Figiel, Bob Wasmund, Gene Crusan,
Diclc Graf and Richard Clark.

This was Frontier's first year in Cross Country competition. The team, consisting of seven
boys coached by Mr. Parisi, participated in 7 meets. Cross Country, in its first year, shows promise
of an important addition to our sports program.
Last year the track team, coached by Mr. C-rottanelli, participated in five meets. The team
consisted of 22 boys. In the first track meet, Frontier lost at Amherst 48-24. Nick Kapuszak took
a first in the high jump and discus. Frontier lost its first home track meet to East Aurora 52-34.
Ray Ernewein and Nick Kapuszak took first places. In the next meet we lost a close one to West
Seneca 52Vz-5115. First places were taken by Jim Pyne, John Thiel, Nick Kapuszak, Bob Wardell,
and Dick Brox. On May 17, Frontier lost to a good Hamburg team 70-15. Frontier won its first
track meet of the season in beating Orchard Park 45-41. First place men were .lim Pyne, Ray
Ernewein, and Chuck Haffner. A great number of second places were taken also by an improved
team. Mr. Crottanelli's hopes are high, for the 1955 team is expected to be the best so far.

The 1954 Tennis Season was a
period of rebuilding, with only
two experienced players return-
ing. The squad was lacking in
experience, but made a good
showing in each match it played.
This was the first season for
Frontier in Division 1 as a "AAN
team, and the pace was too much
for the green squad. Though
most of the contests were close,
Frontier was able to register only
one win while suffering seven
The most encouraging part of
the season was the large turnout
by candidates, all of whom fought
gamely for position on the squad.
With a year's experience behind
them and renewed confidence,
the team looks forward to a suc-
cessful season for 1955.

Early spring finds Frontier Central working very vigorously trying to select a small number of cheerleaders to
represent their school. Oncoming sophomores and juniors are seen doing tedious exercises, preparing for these try-
outs. lndispensable qualities of a good cheerleader are form, interest, agility, co-ordination and passing grades. Thus,
we see that cheerleading is a very definite part of our education. This year, with attractive uniforms and peppy cheers,
the cheerleaders enjoyed leading organized cheers for the team.
Cheerleading is an art. A great deal of time and effort was expended by the girls and the results were rewarding,
An example of the spirit that the cheerleaders and the student body had this season can be found in one of the fa-

Activities such as soccer, basketball,
tumbling, volleyball, bowling, softball and
tennis were included in the program. This
great variety is conducive to general par-
lt is believed that the girls participating

skill used in adult life, and above all have
the needed competition.

Our local P.T.A. members and officers have worked closely with the National
Congress of Parents and Teachers and have exerted constant effort toward the realiza-
tion of its aims. Our programs, including Founders Day Program, Bob Wills visit
to our Hi-Teen and our Installation Day Dinner are centered around problems asso-
ciated with promoting good homes, sound health, safety, educational opportunities,
civic responsibilities, active spiritual faith and, especially, the closer relationship be-
tween home and school. If we meet the needs of youth successfully, then we shall
feel richly rewarded for our efforts. We anticipate even greater Hunity for progressv,
and a wider scope of activity in the new Frontier Central School.
