BJECT MATTER 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 civic advancement. THE FACULTY PRINCIPAL L. D. WILCOX FULTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK 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. , W 4 .,,, 771 THE FACULTY Back Row--Miss Johnston, Mrs. Clark, Misses Achilli, Dickernian, Mr. Fairgrieve fSuperintendentJ, Misses Rice, Lowerre, Kimber, Wells.

Circulating Editor Entered in the Pos! Ojice al Fulton, N. Y., as second class mail mailer EDITORIALS 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 school work. 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- tion. 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 war. 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 United States. 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. Q ,,r- 'um 1 L ll!

S.-- BASKETBALL PARTY 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 dancing. The girls had prepared a feed, which was greatly enjoyed by all who were present. 1-F. H. S.-- ' THEATER PARTY Saturday, June 8th, the members of the Cast of the Class Play journeyed to Syracuse, ehaperoned by Miss Austen, to attend "The Thirteenth Chair," which was being staged at The Empire. Everyone enjoyed the performance and a very pleasant time was reported. l-F. H. S.--- 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. Buell and J. Conners.

FULTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK 27 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: Won 63 Tied 1'g Lost 0.

FULTON HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK 29 BASKETBALL 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 BASEBALL, 1918 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- ner, ' 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.

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 contests. The events went as follows, and ev- eryone agreed that this traclemeet was the best ever planned by Fulton High school. The prizes were award- ed at the Parish House in the even- i11g.

GIRLS' TRACK MEET , of L 6 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 event. 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 as follows: 50-yards dash: Katherine Hanifin, lst, Helen Tyrell, Zdg Virginia De- lano. Sd. 100-yards dash: Katherine Hani- lin, lst, Virginia Delano, Zdg Sarah Church, 3d.

Potato race: Freshmen team, lst, Katherine I-Ianihn, Sarah Church, Helen Lyon, Virginia Delano, Juniors, Zdg Sophomores, 3d. 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. llf. H. S.-- First student: "Look at the riot on the campus."

GIRLS' BASKETBALL 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' FULTON IIIGII SCHOOL YEAR BOOK 37 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 of long and ardent practice and extra- ordinary ability in Coach Roherty. Much credit is due to those loyal ones who came out and practiced every night, even though they could not pos- sibly hope to make the team, to give the more proficient players good prac- tice. The schedule of the games played is as follows: Cazenovia vs. Fulton at Cazenovia, Feb. 22d-Cazenovia, 21, Fulton, 18. Mexico vs. Fulton, at Mexico, March 6th-Mexico, 10, Fulton, 8.

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.
