On the banks of the old Oswego
Where Indian camp tires gleamed,
Now stands our Alma Mater,
True guardian of the stream.
Tho' our strength dwells ever with
We never stronger seem,
Than when we are defending
l7ulton's royal Red and Green.
Though it be on field or platform,
That our valor meets the test,
We are fighting for old Fulton,
And she bids us do our best.
Then with victory as our portion,
Our banners may be seen,
Waving high in glorious triumph,
Fulton's royal Red and Green.
In these halls of our ambition,
True loyalty we learn,
NfVitl1 courage to uphold it,
liver steadfast, sure and Hrmg
So that when in life's broad vineyard,
Eartlfs fruits we seek to glean,
We shall always live to honor
Fulton's royal Red and Green.
"liduc:1,tion is Il journey-always we are enroute."
As we travel through life, many treasures are uncovered and cherished by us.
Memories of schooldaysg friendships that will endure forever.
Through four years of work and play, we have attained the goal for which
we were striving. Now that it is accomplished, bigger and better goals can be
attained. Looking to the future, we see ourselves traveling on a road burdened
with the 'task of reconstruction and the problems of world peace.
We the Senior Class of '46, realize the responsibilities we have in the years
to come. The world we live in will be the world we make, We must avoid the
errors of the past and hold true to the upward way toward one world where all
nicn are entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

1 Sophomore Class
Hardened to the routine of high school life, but still "sopht," the 253 tenth graders of F. H. S. organized on October 17.
On 'December 7, they sponsored a Christmas Dance in the gym. "Since" QSophoMOrEj was there. Santa Claus QDominic
Clavellij also carne to bring cheer to the dancers.
"Rooming" near 214, the Sophomores often "rubbed elbows" and kicked the ankles of their neighbors, the Seniors.
During the year, the Sophomores initiated a fund from which flowers could be bought and sent to members of the class
who were ill for a long period of time.

SIMPLY A SPIDERKS VVEB
rI'IlCl'C,S beauty in a spider's web
That puts man's art to shameg
'But with Mother Nature on her side
Slit-'s on a different plane.
With each concentric circle
Radiating from the center,
The spider performs a splendid feat
VVith the instincts Nature lent her.
And when the sun shines on the dew drops
Collected over the night,
Its beauty excels even the earnival's
-Theodore I. Holmes
l was a piece of gum,
All alone in a yellow pack.
Awhile ago there were four more,
All heaped up in a stack.
One by one my cousins left me
Until I alone was kept
Inside of l1l'ope's blouse pocket
And I wept, and wept, and wept.
I wept and I propose a toast,
A toast to those days now gone.
When people in pre-war days
Could chew from night 'til dawn.
Could chew from dawn 'til night,
Could chew 'til their jaws were numb.
Ah yes-I now propose a toast,
A toast to a piece of gum.

These girls were willing to sacrilice one study period daily in order to lessen
the weight of Miss Di Stefands workg and simultzmeously to increase their own
knowledge of library organization.
Routine tasks included: checking out, carcling and shelving booksg taking
attcndanceg putting new magazines in the rack and filing old perioclicalsg and
keeping the library, in general, in good condition. Doing these jobs so cheerfully
and so well made it possible for Miss Di Stefano to be free for the more intricate
parts of her career.
Those eager for more information about library work received further in-
struction from Miss Di Stefano when business was slack.

"At your service" may justly be considered the unproclaimed motto of Miss
Gormans office helpers.
During a free period each day, these girls volunteered -to perform some of
the menial tasks connected with the office. They collected absence slips from the
class rooms, delivered blue passes and mail to the teachers. They also checked up
on detention evadersg and served as reliable messenger girls for the office.
The installation of the Public Address System has relieved them from passing
the notices at dismissal.

"Pass"-"One spade"-"Your bid."
The second VVednesday of every month this was a common ordeal at the
bridge games undertaken as a part of Carpe Diems schedule for the year. Under
the supervision of Miss Wallace, members learned to bid and play a simple game
of bridge. Although the members have not developed into Ely Culbertsons, still
these College Entrance students have become better acquainted with this aspect of
In place of the usual open meeting, it was unanimously agreed to have a hot
dog roast in the middle of May. A committee was chosen to arrange the affair.
In previous years, Carpe Diem was visited by speakers who talked of college
hte andof topics of general interest. This year, however, solving the mystery
of contract bridge was preferred.

the members of the Commercial Club met once a month with their faculty adv1ser,
Miss McGraw, to better acquaint themselves wlth the busmess world.
Before the war, the members were permitted to visit the offices of Fulton
factories and other business places. There they saw in operation the machines
which they were learning to use. Due to wartime restrictions, these tours had to

'iDo,te la sol fa mi re do."
Sixth bell every Monday and Vtfednesday, strains of melody waited on the
air from the auditorium to the corridors. No mistaking it, the Girls' Glee Club
is always at it, merrily vocalizing under the direction of Mr. Wagoner.
These girls worked on a program of selections which was presented in
assembly. The favorite piece was "Summertime" from George Gersl1win's opera,
"Porgy and Bess." The girls combined with the newly organized Boys' Glee Club
to present the music to an eager audience.

It was not the least bit difficult to imagine these scenes when the Fulton High
School Band gave its exquisite rendition of the Three Blind Mice Symphony in
the Music Assembly on March 29. It was the 'thing most talked about that day.
Each movement was announced by Ed Duver.
The Band practiced in the auditorium the seventh period of every Monday,
Wednesday and Friday under the direction of Mr. Wagiicr.
An annual Spring Music Festival was planned for May 24. Among the
features offered by the red, green and gold uniformed Band were: "Three Dances
of Henry VIII," "Donkey Serenade," "Lus'tspicl," and "Kiltics March."
This active organization has become renowned for its consistent excellence
at assemblies, football games, and other school activities.

In September the girls were chosen by live faculty members, who judged
them on voice, posture, ability and appearance. After weeks of practice and
drilling, accompanied by aching muscles, they were ready to make their debut at
the opening football game.
As the season progressed, new cheers and formations were produced and
taught to the students in various assembly programs. Among these were "The
Reason Yell," "One, Two, Three, Four," 'tThe Hoodoo," "FU" and "The l-lello
Yell." Later acrobatics were introduced in "The Upside Down," "The More
For" and "The Football" yells.

Fulton l-ligh School's 1945-'46 Basketball team had one of the most success-
ful seasons a Fulton I-ligh School team has had in many years, Under the mas-
terful coaching of John "Baron" Muscalino the team ended the season with a
record of lwclve wins and six losses. The team lost two very good centers during
the season due to sickness and the armed service. Aldan WHI'HCl', 6 foot, 3 inch
center, was lost to the team in mid-season when he was stricken with rheumatic
fever. VVarren Cusack, last year's center, returned -to school in January to take
over the center position. 'l-le played in but three games and then he was called
into the Navy. Dominic "Zip" Ippolitto was called up from the junior varsity to
till in at center and "Zip" proved to be a great asset tothe team. The varsity
players were: Sam Bonnano, Max Borek, Ronald Buell, Tony Cavone, War1'e11

Ready hike! There they go right down the field for a touchdown. Boy, what
a team! T hat's our Fulton High football squad.
In an early season game with Baldwinsville High, the Red and Green showed
plenty of promise by defeating the visitors 14 to 6.
Fulton High's next gridiron opponent was Oswego High. The boys played
a hard game, but found themselves on the short end of the 12 to 7 score.
For the third game, the Red and Green gridders traveled to Oneida to play
a hard and wild game of football. Fulton took the lead early in the game. Oneida
came back and tied up the game in the third quarter. The Red and Green then
rolled up two consecutive touchdowns. Oneida struck back to score two touch-
downs, and extra points in the closing seconds ot the game which ended with
Oneida leading 21 to 20.
St. Mary's of Cortland was the next toe of Fulton High. Neither team was
able to score due to the wet, soggy lield. The game ended in a 0 to 0 tie.
The following Saturday, Fulton scored an impressive 26 to 6 win over
The Red and Green banners were waving high and triumphantly after the
final whistle was blown in the second Fulton-Oswego game. Fulton scored early
in the iirst quarter, after a long drive down the field. Oswego bounded right back
to score a touchdown in the next few minutes of play. In the second quarter,
Fulton took the lead again when Stanton hurled a touchdown pass to Tracy. The
Red and Green went into the scoring column again when McGinn cut off tackle
then made at lateral pass to Tracy who scored. The team played one of its best
games of the season to defeat Oswego, 18 to 6.
