FULTON HIGH SCHOOL
FULTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK
THE FULTON HIGH SCHOOL
On the eve of our graduation, we can not help but experience sadness at
the thought of leaving Fulton High School forever. This very ancient, incon-
venient and inadequate building holds at this time a tender place in our
hearts, and we are almost loath to say anything in depre-
A NEW ciation of it. But calm reflection convinces us that tender
HIGH SCHOOL sentiment must give way to stern reality and conditions
pictured, from an unprejudiced standpoint, exactly as they
are. That means FULTON HIGH SCHOOL MUST BE CONDEMNED.
The building was constructed years ago when the population of Fulton
was greatly below that of to-day. Since its erection, the population of the
city has increased in bou11ds, and the incommodious school is called upon to
accommodate a large number of students, greatly exceeding its original and
unenlarged capacity. i
The Principal has been at wits' end to arrange a place for all to study in
during vacant bells and the Assembly Room, on days of chapel, cannot hold all
those who attend. Many are obliged to stand in the rear and on the sides of
the room, uncomfortable and crowded and what is more: THESE CROWDED
CONDITIONS ARE STEADILY GROWING' WORSE.
When the Physical Training Law was passed by the State, we were
obliged to carry on these exercises in crowded halls, between rows of desks,
and under such circumstances no efficiency was retained. At the present time
owing to the inadequate gymnasiumffll, the Physical Training Instructor can
not hope to conduct these exercises as the State prescribes. In view of this
fact are we not guilty of a violation of a State law?
Affairs are surely at a critical point and it fills us with dread to think that
the students who follow us will be subjected to these unfavorable conditions
for an indefinite period. Such an inadequate High School is a blot upon the
good standing and reputation of any city and we hope that when the war is
over, and the people are again engaged in the pursuits of peace, that the citi-
zens of Fulton will rise and rush to the polls, east a unanimous vote in favor of
a new High School, so as to obliterate this disgraceful blot on our history. By
so doing they will have done their part for the promotion of education and

O R PRI CIPAL
PROF. L. DUDLEY WILCOX has held the prineipalship of Fulton High
School for eleven years. His early home was in Bergen, N. Y., a. small town
near Rochester. After leaving Bergen High School he entered Brockport
Normal and was graduated from there in 1892. Upon leaving Normal he
taught for a time at Mehegan Lake Military School. In 1895 he entered Am-
herst College and was graduated from that institution in 1899 with the A. B.
degree. Prof. Wilcox then accepted a position as supervising principal of the
schools of Canaserago, N. Y., where he remained for two years. Before coming
to Fulton he acted as the principal of the Penn Yan High School for four
years. While acting as Principal of Fulton High School he has been an effi-
cient instructor in Mathematics and Science. L
During his stay in Fulton, Prof. Wilcox has gained innumerable friends.
Everyone who comes in contact with him, either in the class room or outside
seems to gain something just from meeting him. The past year has been per-
haps the most trying in the history of Fulton High School but during it all,
Prof. XVilcoX has not lost his personal interest in every student or his willing-
ness to aid each one. He has ,used his superior judgment, based on his yearsof
experience, to the best of advantage in straightening out the difficulties. VVe
I'ecl that we owe to him our unlimited thanks for the successful year which
now draws to an end. ,

This year the Senior Class has turned aside from the usual course of
events and in place of the "Senior Oracle," has published a year book, called
"The Red and Green." "Red and Green" are Fulton High Sehool's colors
and they stand for Fulton High. Likewise, the "Year Book"
THE YEAR stands for Fulton High and endeavors to put, in clear and
BOOK concise statements, the happenings of the past year in school
life. The many pictures will, in future years, recall to memory
the happy days at dear old High School. The many interesting articles con-
cerning classmates, teachers, athletics and social activities will bring back the
good times--the best times of our lives. The citizens of Fulton will enjoy the
book for surely everyone is interested in the school. The book will be a suc-
cess only if the students, faculty and citizens purchase it. The book was put
out at a tremendous expense, and many, saying that expense should be cut
down during the VVar, have severely criticised us. Yet the "Class" feels
that the school work is not complete without some literary endeavor. Then,
why not a good one?
The Senior Class wishes that next year's class will undertake a year book,
and put out one, better and larger than the one which the 1918 Class edited.
The Class of '18 has started the "stone-a-rollin," so to speak, and future
classes must keep it moving.
FULTON HIGI-I SCHOOL YEAR BOOK 19
It may seem presumptuous for the editors, who have never had any ex-
perience in running a school, to endeavor to advise the Board of Education as
to how tl1e schedule of the Senior Class Entertainments should be arranged.
lNe will not deny nor affirm the truth of such an opinion, but
THE SENIOR the presumption of our suggestions may possibly be excused
PLAY by a consideration of the fact that they are made only for the
best interest of both the school and the students.
For years it has been the custom to hold the Prize Speaking Contest and
Class Play during the month of June. The adequate preparation for these
events necessitates tremendous work on the part of the participants and the
results that follow are very detrimental. Much time that should be used in re-
view of school work is exhausted by the Play and Prize Speaking The
student has to study during the small hours of the night, returns to school
tired out and utterly incapable of concentrated study, and his chances of pass-
ing the Regents are greatly endangered.
In view of this fact, we, the editors, expressing popular opinion, and hav-
ing experienced the aforesaid evils, earnestly advise that the Class Play be
staged in the early part of the year. At this season affairs and time would
not be so pressing and the Senior could do greater justice to both Play and
1-F. H. S.--
Early last fall President Wilson issued a proclamation to the school chil-
dren of the United States, asking them to form an organization to be known as
the Junior Red Cross. The pupils in the Fulton school responded eagerly and
enthusiastically. Soon every pupil in the public schools was
JUNIOR RED enrolled as a member. The schools became Red Cross auxil-
CROSS iaries, and entered upon their work of aiding the senior
branch of the American Red Cross in any way possible.
Since then much Work has been accomplished. Pupils in the seventh and
eighth grades devote time from their hand work classes, while the High School
pupils sew each afternoon at the close of school, under the supervision of the
various teachers. Miss Marion Dickerman represents the Senior Red Cross in
the organization. Miss Nancy Cook purchases and distributes the supplies,
and Miss Adelaide Lowerre supervises the work in the High School.
u The children chose the making of layettes as the major part of their
activities. By the last of June eighty complete outfits will be ready for ship-
ment to the orphans of France and Belgium.
Many pupils learned to knit and have made sweaters, wristlets and scarfs
which have been used in outfitting the men as they have left Fulton for camp.
The High School alone has made and turned over to the Red Cross twenty
sweaters. Mention might also be made of the boys who learned to knit and
who have been making wash cloths for each layette.
The High School boys have done excellent work in making picture puz-
zles. Large, gaily colored pictures were pasted upon cardboard, cut into odd-
shaped pieces and placed in large manilla envelopes on which were written
the names of the puzzles and the number of pieces. These puzzles are used
to entertain the convalescents in the hospitals of France.
Under the supervision of Mr. Lawton, the boys in the manual training
department have made fifty-four large packing boxes for use by the local Red
Cross in sending supplies abroad.
20 FULTON'HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK
Tl1e Junior Red Cross has been the recipient of several gifts of yarn and
other materials and of twenty comfort bags presented by the 1909 Shakespeare
Class and the T. A. E. Club. Each bag contains soap, washcloth, talcum,
needles, pins, thread and thimble and a bag accompanies each layette.
The children, while doing for others and learning a great practical lesson
in patriotism, are becoming more capable and efficient needle-women, and the
boys are aiding in every way possible. Truly it may be said that all are learn-
ing to do by doing. A
T-F. H. S.--
A message by President Wilson: "Patriotic boys, girls, men and women
of Fulton will you help win the war? Every family must help feed itself."
Fresh vegetables must be used to lessen home consumption of staple foods
needed by troops and Allies-and there are still other necessities besides
these. The people of this country must provide with
UNITED STATES adequate food supplies for the future--for next winter.
SCHOOL GARDENS Each individual citizen must try to grow as large a por-
tion of his future food supply as he can, in order to ease
transportation problems, or in other words. to lighten the task of hauling to
him for long distances cars full of food. And every group and association of
citizens must do the same. It is because so many people last Summer took up
gardening in this spirit that there were enough vegetables available the past
winter to tide the country over during the periods of transportation conges-
The duty of all citizens is this: Raise vegetables to provide food for your-
selves. And this applies to every one who owns or can get access to land
which may be cultivated. - '
We all have been having the opportunity to serve by not doing certain
things, by avoiding waste, and refraining from extensive use of wheat, fats,
and other kinds of food. But added to it now comes the chance to do some-
thing to grow a garden full of vegetables, each one of which will help win the
These are the days when you should say over and over to yourselves,
not only about gardens but about everything else: Is this thing that I am
about to do going to help my country in winning the war? That is the ques-
tion which not only you, but every man, woman, and child in the whole nation
ought to ask himself.
The pupils of Fulton Public Schools have responded to the "Call to the
Garden" with eleven hundred and sixty-three volunteers. For the first time
i11 the history of the world has a government turned to'its school children and
asked them to mobilize for war against an enemy. The U. S. S. G. army is the
largest army in the Whole world. It has five million volunteers who are will-
ing to do a small part toward winning this War.
Fulton has every reason to be proud of its youthful citizens. They have
responded to the call in larger numbers than in the majority of cities of the
Five hundred of the Fulton gardens contain four hundred or more square
feet. These have been planted carefully and are being well cared for.
The pupils of Fulton Public' Schools deserve encouragement and praise
for their splendid patriotic work.

On Friday evening, May Sth, the Girls' Basketball Team gave a party in
the gymnasium. Miss Roherty, their coach, acted as chaperon. The Senior
Cast, which held a rehearsal in the High School, the same evening, were all
invited to attend and also Miss Austen.
During the evening games were played and a victrola furnished music for

CAPTAIN KRAUS ENTERTAINS
Captain Kraus entertained the Basketball and Baseball Teams at l1is home
on June 17th. The table was beautifully decorated with red, white and blue.
At each plate was a delightful menu, listing, as the boys termed it, "good
eats." President E. F. Sullivan of the Athletic Association, was toastmaster.
He called upon Captain Kraus of this year's Baseball Team, and also of last
and next year 's Basketball Team. Prof. Darby was next called upo11, and his
speech was a farewell address, as he was leaving that evening to join the
colors. In turn, each guest was called upon, and judging from the speeches,
Athletics will be a big success next year.
A toast was given to Mrs. Kraus in appreciation for the "swell eats." A
yell was given for Coach Darby. Mr. Darby, in turn, gave his college yell,
and put Fulton High School on the end. Those present were: F. L. Kraus, Mr.
Darby, D. Hunter, J. Pearl, L. Foster, W. Dingle, A. O'Brien, E. Sullivan, E.
LePointe, C. Pooler, R. Foster, N. Hunter, H. Dingle, H. Lundy, D. O'Brien, J.

FOOTBALL, 19 1 7
In the year 1917, the Football Team, under the guidance of our Coach
Prof. Maure and our Captain, James Judd, experienced a season that was
marked by an unprecedented and phenomenal success. Prof. Maure, who had
been a thorough and 'fall-around" athlete in his College days, still retained
his ability in Athletics, and the clever plays that he knew, illustrated and
taught to the team, made it invincible to all other teams that faced it on the
gridiron. Ile was a man of high ideals and a. sense of fair play and these de-
sirable characteristics. had a most pleasing' effect upon those who came in
contact with him, with the result that the members of the team were not only
skilled athletes, but were thoroughly imbued with a nobility and fairness
that was paramount.
Captain Judd proved himself to be a man of grood judgment, a talented
athlete and the faculty of inspiring the respect and admiration of the mem-
bers of the team. Ile had a most cont:-i.g1'ious fighting spirit that seemed to
spread to each member in the team. The result of such an excellent Uoach
and l'aptain was most g.:'ratil?ying.r as can plainly be seen by a perusal of the
following splendid schedule that had been planned by Manager Pooler before
the season started:

The Fulton Iligh School flushed with its success in Football undertook,
with vigor and confidence, the activities of Basketball. A most successful
schedule was played against out of town teams, both on our court and on
the courts of the opposing teams. Then it became necessary to decide which
team was the Champion in the city. The Mutineers, and Holy Names, the
other two city teams had experienced a successful season and both expected
10 come out ahead in the Championship Games. A schedule was arranged
with each one of these teams, and although many had predicted that our
team would be hard pressed and would not stand much chance of winning,
it came out the victor. The other two teams had practically given us no op-
position at all and we had soon demonstrated beyond a doubt that we were
the Champions of the city. '
When Captain "Keene" LePointe enlisted in the Medical Corps, he was
succeeded by Kraus, whose playing was a big feature. Prof. Maure, who had
begun the coaching left to assume the duties of a higher position in another
city, and was succeeded by Prof. Darby. Mr. Darby undertook the coaching
and his ability was shown by the excellent playing and creditable showing of
the team. Carlyle Pooler, next year's manager, promises a good schedule
for next year and Captain-elect Kraus, predicts another championship team.

FULTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK 31
At the end of the season of 1917, the
members of the old team unanimously
elected "Babe" Kraus to pilot the old
ship of "Baseball" through the sea-
son. Our new coach, Professor Darby,
immediately co-operated with "Babe"
and the calling of the crew of base-
ball candidates began immediately.
Coach Darby and Capt. Kraus were
under a decided disadvantage, having
Only three of last year's team with
them. At last by many afternoons of
practice, a team was picked, which
has ,since proved its ability as a "win-
On May 1st the team started on its
string of victories. I-Ieretofore Bald-
winsville had put forth a team worthy
Of our metal, but because of superior
playing on the side of the Red and
Green the visitors were defeated by
a score of 16 to 4. -
Our next opponents, May 3d, were
our.neighbors from Phoenix. Lundy.
a pitching man of merit, started the
game. "Hank's" ability gave the op-
posing team something to think about,
aus they did not succeed in scoring un-
til the "lucky seventh," when one run
was put to their credit. At last the
fellows decided they wanted to go
home, so Pickett was put in the box.
The opponents went one, two, three
and the last six men were struck out.
The score at the finish was 16 to 1.
On the 17th of May the team made
a trip to Mexico. Each team was con-
fident of victory. Lundy started the
game with a K fstrike-outj to his
credit for the first man. The game at
once became fast and furious. In the
fourth inning Pearl, Lundy and D.
Hunter scored, the score then being 5
to 1. By an accident in the eighth one
of the opposing team made a home
run.' The team at once tightened up
and finished the game at once, leav-
Ing the score 6 to 5 in F. H. S.'s favor.
May 24th proved a bright but windy
day. Mexico came to Fulton for a re-
turn game. The game went off with
the same "pep" and spirit as usual.
The team worked hard and was re-
warded at the end of the 9th with a
score of 12 to 7 in itsfavor.
At 1 o'clock on May 25th the team
took autos for Cazenovia. Cazenovia
has students from all over Central
New York and consequently much
good material is available. Therefore,
the fellows expected a good game.
"Hank" started the game. The oppos-
ing pitcher was certainly "there" with
the speed. In the first inning three
runs were secured, making a good
start-off. At the beginning of the 4th
it began to rain and the ball began to
get slippery. The Cazenovia pitcher,
because steam is hard to control, re-
fused to pitch any longer and all the
Cazenovia team took to the grand
stand. The fellows, of course, would
not think of abandoning a game just
for the sake of rain, and some stayed
in their positions. At last it let up a
little and the game began again, with
Cazenovia at bat. The second man up
drove the ball to left field, with a man
on first. The umpire called the ball a
"fair ball," but I personally heard one
of their own men say the ball was a
foul. This put the score 8 to 6 in Caz-
enovia's favor. It rained harder in a
short time and the umpire, a "town
man," called the game "on account of
rain." Although defeated in the score,
the fellows all agreed that they could
play better ball than Cazenovia.
On June lst Cazenovia came here.
Of course the High school was anxious
to begin, in order to show that they
could beat Cazenovia fairly and square-
ly. Pitckett pitched. I think that is
sufficient explanation. Needless to say
he did everything in his power to baffle
the opponents. By fair and square
playing at last the Royal Red and
Green defeated the visitors by a score
of 8 to 6.
On june Sth the team played one
of the most sensational games of the
season. This game was with Bald-
winsville at Baldwinsville. The in-

F. H. S. Track Meet, May 31st.
For some time Coach Darby and
Miss Roherty had been planning a
track meet. At last on May 31st,
their plans culminated in a field day
for Fulton High. School closed at
2:30 and everyone gathered at the
fair grounds for the events. The
school had previously been divided in-
to three sections. The back section of
the big room, the front section and the
lower rooms. For some weeks Man-
ager Hartnett had had his recruits at
the fair grounds practicing for the

GIRLS' TRACK MEET ,
THE GIRLS' TRACK TEAM
VVhen it was announced that the
girls were to have a track meet this
spring, the different classes held
meetings, elected managers and
showed great interest in the coming
On Saturday, April 20th, 25 girls
reported for practice at the fair
grounds under Miss Roherty's instruc-
tion. From that time on until May
31st, the day of the meet, interest in-
creased and the girls spent many hours
in improving their sprints, jumps, etc.
As this was the first time the girls
had ever participated in track work,
much had to be learned about the cor-
rect form in the different events. The
spirit shown by the girls in their track
work can well be taken as an exam-
ple of the type of spirit which should
be shown by every team, both boys or
girls, in any form of athletics. The
summary of the events in the meet is

Running high jump: This event
proved the most exciting of all. Six
girls entered and were gradually elim-
inated as the pole was raised inch by
inch. The girls were permitted to
jump in any manner which they chose.
Four girls used the right scissors, one
the left scissors and one the straight
ahead. Gertrude Williams succeeded
in capturing first place, clearing the
bar at the height of 3 ft., 8 in. Mar-
garet Fivaz won second place, clear-
ing 3 ft., 7 in. Dorothy Clark was
awarded thirdplace, 3 ft., 6 in. Both
Miss Williams and Miss Fivaz used
the right scissors jump, but Miss
Clark the straight ahead.
The last event was the potato race
between the team of Freshmen girls
and a picked boys' team. In this the
boys gave the girls a handicap of about
ten feet and much to the surprise of
all the girls were victorious.
This summarized briefly the first
track meet for the girls of Fulton High
School and we sincerely hope that it
will not be the last.

The girls' basketball team, under
Miss Roherty's instruction, enjoyed a
line and interesting season, although
some plans did go amiss and every-
thing was not a success. During ev-
ery game that they played, the girls
evidenced the fighting spirit of ter-
riers and every game was highly in-
teresting and hotly contested. Even
though the girls were not victorious
in each game, they always had that re-
deemable quality of being good losers.
Ruth Nipper, a seasoned veteran
along athletic lines and a regular
"husky guy," inspired terror and ad-
miration into the hearts of all those
who played against. her. Florence
Furness, Ellen Powers and Ethel Sul-
livan were forwards that equalled
even the best forwards on the boys'

team, and many baskets are tabulated
to their credit. Gertrude VVilliams
and Lucy McCaffrey guarded against
their opponents with quickness, skill
and agility that ever made them whirl-
winds and baffling warriors to those
who endeavored to play against them.
The whole team showed the result

COLLEGE OF DENTISTRY
SESSION OF 1918-1919
Preliminary Educational Requirement
Qualifying certificates may be issued on evidence of the satis-
factory completion of a four-year course in an approved High school
or the equivalent, or any Regents' Academic Diploma. This course'
of instruction should include one year each--chemistry, physics and
Course of Instruction
The course in dentistry is one of four years. The first and sec-
ondi years are devoted to the fundamental studies of medicine and
dental technic, while in the third and fourth years, the greater part'
of the time is spent in the general practice of dentistry. There arel
more patients applying for treatment than can be accommodated,
which gives a student a rare opportunity to become familiar with all
classes of dental operations.
There are only fifty thousand dentists to
one hundred and fifteen million of inhabitants
in America alone. Therefore, the profession is
not in any sense crowded.
THE GENERAL PRACTICE OF DENTISTRY
The Lecture Platform of the State Boards of Health
The free dental clinics, which are established in most every city and
town in the United States
Attending dentists to religious, charitable, industrial
and penal institutions
