Far above the sparkling water
Neath the sky of blue
Stand Gilboa Central High School
Glorious to view.
Lift the chorus, speed it onward
Let her praises tell
Hail to thee, Gilboa High School
We will serve thee well.
All the world proclaims our glory
And our colors grand:
For the purple and the gold
We will always stand.
We forever shall be loyal
To our school so dear
For her colors we shall toil
And her name we'll cheer.

The REFLECTOR staff, elected in the latter part of the Junior year, is concerned in
the Senior year with the preparation of the yearbook. Although it is the Seniors' responsi-
bility to compile the book, it covers the life of the entire school.
MRS. 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.

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

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
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.
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

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
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.
