dous part in the lives of ancient Greeks,
from whom we have taken many of our
traditions, so GCS has exertecladominant
Force on our lives for the past Four years.
Here we record a portion of our ac-

The Board of Education, as directors of our school program, have an excellent
approach to the problems of education Each year our learning environment is um
proved and we have the best Instruction possible
This year the Board made a safety survey and gave additional protection for
our school, such as fire extinguishers. Most important of all on the program was a
study of the curricula in the school.
The Board and the faculty meet occasionally todiscuss the program and school
problems so as to better the school.
Paul Eshbaugh served as President this year.

Although the orchestra was rather small this
year, the group was able to handle music arranged
for larger orchestras It is hoped that next year new

This will greatly augment the power of the orchestra

The 1954-55 edition of the Blue Devils court squad played
in the tradition of Geneseo Central's sportsmanship and
spirit. Though sadly handicapped by the loss of Jerry
Ulmerthrough iniuries, the team won its share of contests.
Several ofthe games were thrillers to the very end, in-
