HERBERT EDWARDS We, the Class of 1957, wish to dedicate our yearbook to Mrs. Herbert Edwards, our guide in Junior High, and Mr. James Gallagher, advisor in our Sophomore and Junior years. During the two years that Mrs. Edwards was our advisor, she did much for our class, directing us in our efforts. Mr. Gallagher, who also was our class advisor for two years, helped us in our social and money making activities. We shall never forget them. MR. JAMES I. GALLAGHER F Princnnalis Message Gilboa -Conesville Central School Gilboa, New York I une, 1957 As you leave high school this month your paths begin to diverge. Some of you will enter other institutions of learning, some the Armed Forces and some will go directly into your chosen occupations. lt is my hope that the past four years have provided you not only with the basic skills but with general knowledge, habits of morality, principles of good sportsmanship and the practices of citizenship which will enable you to build a satisfactory career in your chosen fields of endeavor. The problems of our country have never been more serious than at present: in a time of unprecedented prosperity, we must struggle to preserve our way of life. As you settle in various communities and take up the full burden of responsible citizenship, may it be given to each of you to make those contributions to the welfare of the community, state and nation that our democracy may survive and improve and that you may pass on to future generations the blessings of freedom which you have en- joyed. As a group you have made an enviable record. The same application to work and duty which you have demonstrated here will assure your future success. It is my earnest wish that your lives may each be full, rewarding and filled with happiness. Sincerely, Vivian B. Peckham l X WILLIAM F.

MISS GRACE CONNER Advisor MR. WILLIAM HUNT Advisor D0 You Remember When.. . . One of the usual procedures at the time of a great forward step is to take a backward look. What have been the events which made the greatest im- pressions? Who were the people whose influence determined the development of the members of the class: What gave the group its character, its identity? A search of memories should reveal these lasting factors. The teacher of any class exerts a great influence over her charges, partic- ularly over young children. The class of '57 remember their early school days as they began their formal education in Miss Stryker's class in the main build- ing or Miss Wyckoff's room in Manorkill. That seems to have been a long time ago. World war II had just ended. Vaccinations and whooping cough shots are always associated with Mrs. Nickerson's second grade, while the thrill of a first train ride, all the way from Stamford to Roxbury, distinguishes Mrs. Fernand's class the following year. Mrs. Maben took the class, then fourth grade, to the Catskill Game Farm. Everyone enjoyed the trip so much that the group voted to return the next year with Miss Lizette. She took her young charges to see the operation of a lock on the Erie Canal, too. The year which opened with a polio epidemic ended on a happier note. An assembly program intended to portray the nations of the world was a highlight of the school year. Beside the play itself, there was an exhibit of imported articles, and refreshments including cakes made and frosted in the homemaking department by members of the class. Mrs. Wright was the guiding hand at this time. Seventh grade brought departmentalization of classes. Mr. Dahlberg climaxed the local and state history covered in social studies by taking the class to visit the Old Stone Fort and the Schoharie Jail. No one has forgotten the whiff of tear gas encountered at the jail. Mrs. Edwards started the class through eighth grade but left at Christmas time. A big farewell party for her was a major social event of the year. Mr. Moyer took over briefly but was soon succeeded by Mrs. Ames. The class motto, colors, and flowers, selected this year, were retained by the class throughout the remaining years in school. Like all Freshman classes at G. C. S. , '57 sold seeds. Under the direction of Miss Macdonald, class advisor, a play, "Bobby Socks, " was given as one of the three one-act plays. Highlights of the Sophomore year, with Mr. Gallagher as advisor, includ- ed another play, "No More Boys, " and a hayride. A major event in the history of G. C. S. occurred in the fall of 1955. The new addition to the building was opened. In the Junior year, with Mr. Gallagher continuing as advisor, magazines were sold during the fall and dances scheduled in the spring. The weather interfered as much as possible with floods and snowstorms, so that riot all events could be held, but the prom was held as planned. The class took over candy sales in the spring, and started the 1957 yearbook. The final year saw the class, now advised by Mr. Hunt, engaged in more money raising activities, starting with the sale of magazines and candy, and continuing with greeting cards, refreshments at ball games and P. T. A. meet- ing. The Washington trip was the focal point for the planning. After that, of course, all thoughts turned to graduation. 'af The Junior Class carried on a lumber of activities this year, in- cluding their first dance, the sale of magazines, and the sale of candy, all to raise money for the Senior trip. The Juniors received their class rings of which they are very proud. Juniors First row: J. Kingsley, Secretary. Second row: L. Fancher, Treasurer, B. Every, Pres- identg S. Lutz, Vice President.

Make the Sectionalsf The first cross country meet of the season was held at Middleburg during the latter part of September. Gilboa was successful in winning with a score of 23. Middleburg had 37. On October 3, Gilboa and Cobleskill met at Jefferson. Again Gilboa came in at the top with the score of 28 against Jefferson's 83 and Cobleskill's 29. On October 10, Gilboa was host to Richmondville and Jefferson but remained undefeated. At the end of the run Gilboa had 28, Rich- mondville 29, and Jefferson 87. At the Cobleskill Invitation Run, Gilboa came in in third place behind Richmondville and Waterford. Again at the County Run at Cobleskill on October 25 Gilboa took third place following Richmond- ville and Cobleskill. Middleburg and Jefferson also participated in the run. November 3, at the Sectional Run in Schenectady, Gilboa took second place in Class "D" Section. As a result Leslie Buel again re- presented Gilboa at the Intersectional Run at Baldwinville. Leslie thus became the schoo1's first member ever to take part in the Sectional two years in succession. Although the team will lose Leslie Buel, Paul Humphrey, and Larry Becker by graduation, next year's squad looks very promising with good runners coming up. 5? X Q XVQW 1.
