Jurns EDWARD IQING, who has given us nnivli help :incl guideince during his years as our class advisor, wo, the gracluziting class of 11154, wish to say ai heeirtfclt t'Tlizmks." Without his aid wc could not have so successfully completed our high si-hool days. Class In September, 1941, sixteen baby bees buzzed into Miss Helen Failing's kindergarten at Fort Plain school. This lively swarm, which was to become the graduating class of 1954 included Joe Ciani, Bob Dicks, Richard Dygert, Yvonne Geweye, Sandra Haz- zard, Marlene Hoyer, Russell Hoyer, Anita King, Shirley Knowlton, Claudia Monk, Yvonne Pelletier, Marvin Schwartz, Bob Shockley, Amelia Sickler, Joyce Timmerman, Roger Wahler and Gary Wells. Arleen Stock joined us in First Grade, where Mrs. Frank was our "Keeper," Third Grade, with Mrs. Hudson, added Jane Aird, Joan Mabbett, and Hugh Pomella. Fourth Grade brought Marion Doxtater and Barbara Hunter, and in Fifth Grade, Tony Lipson and Owen Wilson helped increase the swarm. The first real signs of business appeared in Sixth Grade, along with Marvin Conover. Ours was the distinction of being the "Lost Sixth Graders" on the very first Moving-Up Day. We tried out our drama- tic wings by presenting "Valentine's Day in the Court of Hearts." Seventh Grade, with the coming of Simone Carpenter, Carole Conrad, Shirley Dillenback, James Edick, Ina Frasier, Lois Gould, Florence Loren, Lydia Moore, Betty Oldick, Barbara Palm, Linda MacRoy, Mary-Jo MacRoy, Kay Patterson, Carolyn Prall, Eva Smith, and Leland Walrath, saw the sale of basket- ball pencils and the weaving of an afghan by the class. The next year, Phyllis Wauiie flew in from St. Johnsville to join the growing swarm. Our Freshmen year, with Miss Lillian .Penney and Mr. Kenneth Baumgartner our chief "Keepers" was the beginning of more serious activity. The sale of Fort Plain caps, pennants, and emblems, as well as a food sale brought in honey in the form of money. History Junior High School graduation was a marker on our flight, promising greater things to come. Joan Barbaric, Bernice Morrison, Bob Reese, Evelyn Getman, and Milt Weaver from Nelliston braved the "watery deep" every day to be with us. Mr. James E. King became our adviser during our Sophomore year on the departure of Mr. Baum- gartner. Shirley Kilmartin and Natalie Mowers came to help us with a food sale, while the boys worked hard on Saturday scrap and paper collections. We were very sorry to lose Miss Penney as an adviser, but hoped she would enjoy being in Hawaii. Another animal-a rabbit-appeared in Fort Plain Central School during the Junior Play. Who will forget "Harvey?" The old stand-by, a food sale, was outshone by a very successful hayride and an equally successful dance. A good time was had by all at the Junior-Senior Banquet. Helene Seguin joined our class at this time. The next September we suddenly realized that this was it! Our Senior Year! We became Busy Bees in earnest, for the big Easter trip to New York wasn't too far away. A dance, a hayride, two food sales, and the refreshment concession at basketball games were our money-making activities. "Night Must Fall," the Senior Play, involved a lot of hard work, but brought a great deal of satisfaction when it was over. Jim Lockyer came to spend this last year with us. Marvin Schwartz was our president, Russell Hoyer the vice-president, Yvonne Geweye our secretary and Carole Conrad our treasurer. Carolyn Prall and Hugh Pomella were our representatives to Student Council. Graduation marked the end of one phase of our life and the beginning of another as the Busy Bees of 1954 flew on to even greater success. oy' V A .4 ' mum ,W .iq I QV , X U kv 4?' 0 1 I QE' if 1 5 Q W v .F Q :Za pi?

The team was undefeated at home in league contests. One of the defeats was at Dolgeville in an over-time game, and another was a two-point decision at Canajoharie. The third loss was at Frankfort, the league champions. For three consecutive years under Coach Mullet, the Hilltoppers have played in the sectional play-offs at Saratoga. The team will miss the offensive play of Richard Osborne and the defensive abilities of Robert Shock- ley, Robert Dicks, and Hugh Pomella when next sea- son rolls around.

Qrganizafion The Future Farmers of America is a boys' organi- BLD-l.1.t.lIlffILO.l1'l.2.bOllL 14 ,to 21 years of The boys also attended the high school judging events at both Cobleskill and Morrisville State Agri- age who are interested in agriculture as their life's work. It is one of the few organizations that actually trains boys for a vocation by the time they leave high school. The FFA in conjunction with the courses in Vocational Agriculture is advised by the Agriculture teacher. Through these courses the boys learn by doing. The requirements of the FFA are that a boy must be interested in farming and have a farm situation whereby he can keep actual records of a farm business and carry on a supervised project of his own such as raising a calf or a flock of chickens. The primary aims are to develop agriculture lead- ership, co-operation and citizenship, improve farm home surroundings to provide for a better iife and a better place to live, and to prepare a boy for his life vocation. The FFA of Fort Plain Central School has grown in the past six years until there are at present 27 members. Several awards were won by the boys this year in the many activities in which they participated. These were climaxed by a parents' and friends' ban- quet. The FFA has entered the annual six-county Milk Quality Control Contest conducted by the Dairymen's League for five consecutive years and has placed in one of the top three places each year. cultural and Technical THstitu'E'WlTer?tl'Tey Tvpnwari ous team and individual prizes. At Open House last fall, the local Chapter of Future Farmers displayed a booth representing the home farm business of the FFA boys. The display included samples of the various accomplishments of the boys and their projects. One of the outstanding exhibits was on farm safety showing how farm acci- dents occur. Twelve of the FFA boys and Mr. Fredericksen attended Farm and Home Week at Cornell University, where these boys had access to all the latest data in modern farming. They attended lectures and saw many demonstrations and exhibits. They also had an opportunity to talk to experts about problems on their home farm. This year the local chapter participated in two radio broadcasts. At WENT in Gloversville, the boys broadcast a program about the "Importance of Dairy Farming." At WGY, their program was the "Production of Quality Milk." One of the outstanding activities of the year was the trip to Kansas City to attend the National FFA Convention. Henry Bergen, Laverne Putnam, and Charles Bramer were representatives from Fort Plain who helped to make up the New York State delegation. These boys attended the regular business meeting and saw the awarding of the American Farmer Degree. This is the most outstanding award a Future Farmer can earn.

Zagorskyg first to give an opportunity to all students to earn a dis- tinctive Fort Plain letter and become more closely associated with the school, and secondly to increase attendance at school. The idea took hold fast and pictured above are the charter members of the "A" Club who had per- fect attendance during the school year 1952-53. This is a tremendous increase over the previous year when there were no pupils with perfect attendance. The prospects for new members during 1953-54 looks encouraging. Barring' any general illness among students we should admit at least 80 new members this year. The letters are purchased by the Student Coun- cil and are of two types. One is of felt and the other of chenille. For one yearfs perfect attendance the student earns a felt letter, for two years or more he earns a chenille letter. The officers are: President, Myrna Beckg Vice- President, Ursula Haniling Secretary, Charles Geh- ringg Treasurer, Barbara Regel. 38 Dramafics Club Row 1: Mr. L. Robert Sanders, director, G.

Gros Geomefry Class Q Class and teacher, Mrs. Evadean Handy listen to and Walter Stewart. Mrs. Evadean It is with genuine regret that we see Mrs. Evadean Handy retire this June. In her years of teaching no one could have served her profession with greater spirit of selflessness. She has been un- failing in giving of her time and effort to bring out the best in each student. She has inspired in her students an admiration Cifizenship Educaiion explanation of theorems as worked by Iona Schrell Handy Retires which lasts. Her record in school speaks for her excellence as a teacher but the devotion of students who remember her speaks for her instinctive under- standing of people. She has always displayed the Hnest qualities of professional ethics. For this she is respected by students, fellow teachers, and people of the com- munity. The Citizenship Education Department participated in the 16th Annual Oratorical contest, sponsored by the American Legion, Department of New York, last fall.
