F F A Grganizafion
Future Farmers of America is a boys' organi-
zation in conjunction with the courses in Vocational
Agriculture and is advised by the agriculture teach-
er. The primary aims are to develop agriculture
leadership, cooperation and citizenship, and im-
prove farm home surroundings to provide for a
better life and a better place to live.
During a school year, the F. F. A. boys par-
ticipate in many activities climaxed by a banquet
at which the degree of Empire State Farmer is
Many awards have been made to the boys
this year. At Morrisville State Agricultural Insti-
tute, Raymond Klock won individual high honors
in dairy cattle judging, having the highest score
of all boys participating. He was awarded a pure-
bred, registered Holstein bull calf which came from
the high producing stock at the Institute.
The Fort Plain F. F. A. won fourth place as a
school, with thirty-three schools participating, in a
similar contest at Cobleskill. The boys placed
second in dairy cattle judging. Edward Dillenbeck
placed first high individual in Dairy Technology as
well as high team score.
At open house last fall, the local chapter of
Future Farmers displayed a booth representing
the home farm business of the F. F. A. boys. This
was a pleasing display of the various accomplish-
ments of the boys and their projects.
Later in the fall, the F. F. A. sponsored a
harvest dance together with the Future Home-
makers. The F. F. A. boys attended Farm and
Home Week, and the advance classes of agricul-
ture accompanied Mr. Fredericksen to Ithaca, where
they visited the State College, attended lectures,
and saw demonstrations and actual practices of
modern, up-to-date farm methods.
Gerald Burns, Raymond Klock and Theodore
Michalik received the Empire State Farmer Degree
at the annual Future Farmers of America Conven-
tion held in the spring.

Library Club Activities
The purposes of the school library system are
to train student library assistants and to develop
interest in the school library and librarianship. The
student assistants help provide better service to
pupils since this gives the librarian more time to
devote to library work which students can't do.
Daily duties of the student librarian are
charging library books, shelving library books,
keeping a record of attendance, keeping a record
of the circulation of library books, preparing maga-
zines and newspapers and sending notices for over-
The student librarian's other duties are pre-
paring books for circulation, typing catalog and
shelf list cards, tiling catalog and shelf list cards,
typing letters and book lists, preparing bulletin
board displays, helping other students select books,
taking inventory, mending books and preparing
and filing pamphlets and pictures.
"Belvedere" cast included: Harry Patterson, Mr. Appleton, Emelie Hoffman, Alice Foster, Ross Hack, Harry
King, Sheila Desmond, Tacy King, Milburn Smith, Lynn Belvedere, Vernon Hinkle, Bill Philbyg
Betty Bergen, Edna Philbyg Salvatore Davi, Mark King, Bruce Harbster, Bobby King, Harold
Schwager, Sam Troutg Gail Achenbach, Mrs. Appleton.

HAI! The Worlds a Stage"
fTwo children enter, having just come from the
first day of school. September, 19395
First Child: Gosh, school looks like its gonna
Second Child: Yes, and there are a lot of swell
kids, too. Bob Bronk, Sonny Davi, "Red" Wclls,
and that cute Marlyn Wahler.
First Child: Is she the one who was chasing
Dickie Luft all around Kindergarten?
Second Child: Yes. Did you meet Pat Luft, Billy
Hoffman and his cousin, Emelie Hoffman?
First Child: Sure. Helen Miller and little Mil-
burn Smith look like nice kids. I think Miss Fail-
ing is gonna be a nice teacher.
Second Child: I bet we'll have fun. They're get-
ting a new slide this year.
First Child: We'll be the first class to go to the
Kindergarten in the new school, here on the hill.
Last year, they went to the Masonic Temple.
Second Child: Yes, I know. I think school is
gonna be great. I can't wait to get started.
First Child: See you tomorrow.
ACT I-SCENE I
fThe day of registration in the First Grade, 1940.
A father and son are talking.J
Father: How'd school go, son?
Son: Fine, dad. Gee, just think, this year I'm in
the First Grade.
Father: Are there any new members in your
Son: Yes, two. Glenn Petterson and June Kibler.
Father: Who is your teacher?
Son: Mrs. Frank, and is she nice!
Father: This year you start to read and write,
Son: Yes. We're gonna learn geography and
Father: You'll have to study hard.
Son: I know, but I won't mind. School is fun!
ACT I-SCENE II
fFive years later, 1945. Last day of school
in the Sixth Grade.l
Son: Boy, am I glad this year's over!
Father: I thought you liked school.
Son: I do, but I can only take ten months of it
at a time.
Father: Did you learn anything this year?
Son: Sure. I learned all about fractions, and Mrs.
O!Connell taught us a lot about geography.
Father: What's your favorite subject?
Son: Well, when I was in the Second Grade, and
Miss Buell was the teacher, Math was my favor-
ite: that was when Joan Es-sler, Ross Hack, Gary
Hokerk. Janet Schrell, and Shirley Hopkinson
joined the class. Then, the next year, when Miss
Brooks was our teacher, I liked English a lot. In
the Fourth Grade. Miss Miller was the teacher,
and I liked spelling. Mary Oldick came to FPHS
that year. Last year Miss Shediield wa-s our teach-
er, and I liked geography. Now, this year I've de-
cided all those are too hard. I like Gym the best!!!
Father: Were there any new members in your
class this year?
Son: Blondie Augustine, Ralph Smith, and Ber-
nice Buley. Next year, there will be more because
a lot of kids come in from the country schoo s. And,
next year we pass classes for the first time.
QTWO students are on their way to Junior High
First Student: Just think, tonight we graduate
from Junior High school.
Second Student: You know, our Junior High
days have been terriffic. So many new kids, new
activities, and new subjects.
First Student: In the Seventh Grade, we gained
more new classmates than in any other previous
grade, Betty Bergen, Gerald Burns, Ed Dillenbeck,
and Jane Edick.
Second Student: Barbara Fredericks, Betty
Gould, Charlotte Leneker, too.
First Student: There were many who came to
F. P. H. S. for the first time from the country
schools. Carl Looman, Dorothy March, Harry Pater-
son and Roger Trumbull.
Second Student: Don't forget Sheila Desmond,
she came from Little Falls.
First Student: In the Eighth Grade, Harold
Schwager joined and this year Gail Achenbach,
Gwen Getman, Nadine Klock and Vernon Hinkle
also have become new classmates.
Second Student: This year was the first year
we've had class activities and class officers.
First Student: Oh yes, Emelie Hoffman, presi-
dent, and June Kibler, secretary-treasurer. Well,
here we are at school.
Second Student: Gosh, we're practically sopho-
fTwo Seniors are talking in Journalism Class,
First Senior: Miss White asked me to write the
Class History. I've got it all done except our high
school history. Let's see, what'll I say?
Second Senior: Have you told about class offic-
ers, and new members?
First Senior: That's right. There've been three
new '52ers. In our sophomore year, Betty Jaiser
and Grace Tudor, and this year Jean Perri. What
about the officers?
Second Senior: Let's see, in our sophomore year
"Red" Wells was president, and Emelie Hoffman,
secretary-treasurer. Then last year Ross Hack was
president, with Gail Achenbach secretary-treasurer.
Remember, they were so successful, we re-elected
them this year.
First Senior: I should include some of the activi-
ties such as our plays: "Big Hearted Herbert" in
our junior year and "Be1vedere' this year. They
were a riot!
Second Senior: And don't forget the Prom,
and the under-water theme, with the fish net, mer-
maids and all. That was a darn good prom, even
though we did lose a little money on it.
First Senior: You know we're the first class to
graduate from Fort Plain Central school.
Second Senior: I guess I've got it all down. I
wonder where we'll all be in the future, about
2,000. Next year we start out in this game of life.
It would be interesting to 'see what happens to all
of us. I wonder what we'll be doing.
First Senior: I wonder.
fTwo men are seated in a Rocket Ship on Mars,
which is about to take off. The year is 2,000
A.D. They are talking over old times
when they were in school together.D
First Man: Those were the days!
Second Man: Yes, FPCS wa-s really jumping back
A voice over a loud speaker: All aboard for Ven-
us, Earth and Mercury. Humans show tickets at
space ship. All robots to the rear. Ready for the
First Man: Remember the Class of '52?
Second Man: Do I! You know, they were a swell
bunch of kids.
First Man: I'll say! There aren't many classes
like that now.
Second Man: Whatever became of those kids?
First Man: Well, let me see, Harold Schwager is
the space cadet of this ship, you know, and a few
days ago, back on Mars, I saw Shirley Hopkinson.
She was converting all the three-eyed Marsians.
You remember June Kibler? Well, she's printing the
Daily Stock Report. Sales are way up since she's
added that gossip column. Who else was in that
Second Man: There was Sonny Davi and "Red"
Wells. Sonny, they call him Rhubarb Davi, he's
the Spitfire manager of the "Brooklyn Dodgers."
"Red,' is a sportscaster. Last year, during the
game in which the Dodgers finally won the pen-
nant, "Red" got so excited he couldn't speak.
People all over the world thought their TV speak-
ers had gone dead.
First Man: I remember that. I was in Washing-
ton at the time.
Second Man: Two of the Class of '52 are in
Washington. Congressman Harry Patterson of New
York, and Janet Schrell. She's the President's pri-
vate secretary. And, you remember Gary Hokerk?
He's in Washington quite a bit too. Gary is now
Good-Will Ambassador to Europe.
First Man: Did any of the class settle in Fort
Second Man: Oh, yes. Dick Luft and his wife,
formerly Marlyn Wahler, live there. Dick is Mayor
now. Ralph Smith is manager of the Oneida Mar-
First Man: Oh, ye-s, I remember now. Joan Essler,
Jane Edick, Gwen Getman and Grace Tudor
fthose are their maiden namesb are leading citi-
zens. And, isn't Glenn Petterson in the Beech-Nut?
Second Man: Yes, he has a high paying job
Voice over loud speaker: Now ready for landing
First Man: Well, go on, tell me more, who else
was in that class?
Second Man: Let me see, there was Gail Achen-
bach. She can be found in the Radio City chorus
line, third from the end in the padded pink tights.
First Man: What ever became of her friend,
Second Man: Sheila combined her two inter-
ests, and has just designed a nurse's uniform.
They're rather hard on the nurses, but the doctors
love them! Remember Betty Jaiser? Well, she's
been a nurse in all the great hospitals of the world.
Just returned from one in Hawaii. While there,
Betty visited Miss Penney.
First Man: What about Gerald Burns, Roger
Trumbull and Ed Dillenbeck?
Second Man: Well, Gerald and Roger are the
heads of the Dairymen's League. Ed, commonly
known as Dragalong Dillenbeck, is the Marshal of
West Gulch, Arizona. Remember Blondie Augus-
tine? He owns a chain of restaurants across the
universe. Very successful. Let me think, who else
was in that class?
First Man: Well, I know about some of them, for
instance, Dorothy March, and Mary Oldick are out
in Hollywood acting as technical advisers on the
filming of their latest novel, "My Desire." They
used those hours in library to a good advantage.
Milburn Smith is in Hollywood too. He's jack-of-
all trades out at Metro-Goldwyn-Smith, filming,
directing, acting, writing, etc. And, you remember
Bob Bronk? He lives an easy life in Fort Plain,
controls the petroleum consumption up and down
Second Man: What about Bernice Buley and
First Man: Bernice is a medium in a carnival.
She holds silent seances. Betty is the head of the
Actors' Lab Dramatics School on Broadway. Speak-
ing of Broadway, Vernon Hinkle just opened there
in "0mlette," the story of a melancholy chicken
Second Man: What about Barb Fredericks and
First Man: Oh, they're lecturing on their trip
around the universe. Remember Betty Gould? She's
just set an endurance record for staying in the air
longer than any other pilot. Three years in a jet!
Second Man: What ever became of Ross Hack?
First Man: Ross is very busy writing the bio-
graphy of his idol, Tennessee Williams. I heard a
review of his book on Emelie HoHman's TV show.
She does the entire telecast in her gym suit. That's
the program filmed by Bill Hofman.
Second Man: What became of Jean Perri?
First Man: She is in charge of all employment
for Luxuray. And remember Pat Luft? Last sum-
mer she was the first woman to swim the Gulf of
Mexico. What a gal!
Second Man: Nadine Klock, you know, is now
Nadine of the Waldorf, originator of original hair-
dos. Carl Looman makes up the State regents
exams for Chemistry and Physics. He is an author-
ity on science. He just designed a new Atomic
Motor. Remember Charlotte Leneker? She is the
foremost American tatooist. She also pierces ears
while you wait.
A voice over loud speaker: Ready for landing
Second Man: Gee, it's good to hear all about
those '52ers again.
First man: There'll never be another class like

Gur Bill oi Rights
If we were to ask a person today what the Bill
of Rights means to him, he might say one of many
things: freedom of speech, press, and religion,
just an addition to the Constitution, or nothing.
First we should all learn what the Bill of Rights
is and why we need it. Second we should find out
how our country with these rights compares with
other countries that are not so fortunate.
These ten amendments, the Bill of Rights, are
an important addition to the Constitution, and are
our rights as citizens of the United States.
The first article which gives us freedom of
speech, press, and religion is, I think, the most
important. These freedoms can be compared more
readily than described. In our country there is not
one universal religion, but many and from these
The stage is made ready.
The Actor has been prepared,
And in his mind
Are firmly set the lines and action.
An audience awaits the curtain,
After which, the play will begin.
The world has not been made ready.
The student, however, has been educated,
And in his mind,
The thoughts and action will have to be firm.
Or, after the graduation,
The life will not begin.
MILBURN SMITH, JR.
we may make our choice. In some countries of the
world worship of God is prohibited and religious
leaders are imprisoned, tortured, or even killed.
The rights of free speech and press can be dis-
cussed together. Under these rights we can speak
freely, print any but libelous news in our papers,
assemble freely and petition the government. In
comparison with other countries we note a great
difference. In many parts of the world people are
restricted in these rights. They are not allowed
to think for themselves or criticize the govern-
ment and are, therefore, uninformed, downtrodden
If all countries had our Bill of Rights, people
would be better informed and more tolerant and
there would be less bloodshed as a result.
