Busy as bees, we. the Journztlisin Class, have worked
to present the yearbook, PORTRAIT, as a syinbol of Fort
Plain Central School and its activities.
We have chosen to represent the school as the bec-
hiveg the administration as the bee-keeper. who watches
over the beesg the seniors as the queen beeg the underclass-
men as the bees finding' their way in lifeg and the activities,
as worker bees gathering honey.
In life's pattern. it is the busy bees who get the
Inost honey and live without fear. So following their
example. we have tried to form R firni foundation for our

NVQ, thc Class of 15154, clecliczitc our
yearbook, Portrztit. to MRs. lllARY FL.xND1sRs
for hor loyal service to Fort Plain Cvntral
School and its students. Wm- wish to thunk
her, especially, for her aissistzuice with pro-
ducing this Portrait and to wish her success
and happiness in tho following years.
To Miz. 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.
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
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
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.
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
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.

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

the boys and their projects. One of the outstanding

modern farming. They attended lectures and saw
many demonstrations and exhibits. They also had an
opportunity to talk to experts about problems on their
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.

The Attendance Club was formed for a two-fold
purpose by its adviser, Eugene D. 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
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.
