ln later years. the morale being of the
school and its individuals has been height-
ened by the advent of the school circus.
Many individuals and many' clubs have par-
ticipated in helping to make the event each
year just as superb and enjoyable as thc
last, Each year they succccd in doing so.
lndcr the capable leadership of a faculty
chairman. who helps indcfatigably' with all
aspects. the circus each year develops from
a mere display' of props and words into the
systematic organization of a well-oiled ma-
chine. The crcdit for being chairman last
ycar goes to Mr. Richard Lucas. while Mr.
Marvin Click htld that post the previous
year. This year. of couse. we all know that
Mr. Lucas again handled the duties. making

arc' several of the familiar parts of any' ex-
cellent circus. For instance. there is the in-
evitable side-show with its weird offerings of
freaks and exhibits of wholly unusual talents.
Then there are the extraordinary' displays of
fantastic movies. and all types of unique and
fun-filled games. These are amusing sections
which keep the children quite active before
the big show begins. The after-show. too, is a
much looked-forward-to event. There the
more or less specialty' acts are performed.
and they' always contain much enjoyment and
humor for everyone.
ln any circus. certain events are con-
sidered better than others. and certain acts
are always drawing cards for the complete
display. Such are the ridiculously' funny'
"chorus girls." composed entirely' of mem-
bers of the Key' Club. who do the Can-Can.
Then there is the tumbling act, composed of
the muscular individuals of the school, and

the unimaginable display of weird and some-
times grotesque animals. Needless to say,
these are not real animals. but boys and
girls individually talented to perform
as sueh. Much of the fun would be lost if the'
animals were real.
Then. too. the eireus parade. which is in
charge of the Booster Club. travels the day
before the big show opens through the busi-
ness section of town to give the townfolk a
slight insight as to what the eireus will con-
tain. The youngsters in town always have a
grand time running around and following
this or that elown. or this or that animal. And
tht- elowns and animals love it.
The eireus allows individual talent to be
displayed and perfected by the school pupils
in a form whereby it might never have been
so. For that reason. too. the pupils love to
participate in it. The monev gained. needless
to say. is given toward a most deserving
During the first year of its existence. the
eircus gave only an evening performance.
The next year it had to give a matinee as
well. That goes to prove that the eireus is
here to stay.
Each vear it becomes better. and. though
it wonit ever be competition to Ringling
Brothers. it will stav as a definite event to

RICHARD A. LUCAS
It isn't often that the yearbook has the honor to dedicate
itself to a man who is filled with versatility and who possesses
a congenial attitude and humorous perception. Full of vi-
tality, his manner is one of friendliness and amiability. It
is, therefore, with a great deal of pleasure that we are able
to dedicate this year's ORACLE to lVlr. Lucas.

This year, under the capable direction of our
new dramatic teacher, Mrs. Dorthea Hinkle, the
senior class presented a three-act comedy by Wal-
ter Kerr-"Stardust.,' The comedy was enjoyed
by all, and the players had a great deal of fun
putting it on.
The play takes place in a small New Hampshire
university, where the members of that institutionls
dramatic club, under the strict supervision of Pro-
fessor Craig Kendal Bach, played by Richard
Blumcnberg, tend to believe that they must 'glivew
what they act. Prudence Mason, played by Con-
cetta Beneduce, is a big Broadway star who comes
to the University to play with the club in "An-
thony and Cleopatra? She is quite disturbed over
the attitudes of the students, and her Wall Street
fiance, Arthur Scott, Jr., Michael Parkhurst, is
quite put out over the whole affair. Clair Carter,

There is a break while John Ligons puts the finishing touches on
the "souped up" hotrods in preparation for the feat of the heck-drivers.
Among the celebrities present, we recognize Betty Reith, who receives
tremendous applause for her famous novel, "Gone With The Breeze." Also
in ,the audience is Ron "Sizzling" Selufsky, who is now teaching Ein-

Tanner, who are competing with Jim "Lay 'um Out" Langlois, John "Four

whelming odds in their daredevil stunts which keep the audience on
the edge of their seats. After the boys and their wrecks have been
carried off the field, the four winners are awarded a week's trip to the
moon, all expenses paid by the K'Spact-mobile Little Racer Corpora-

The show is over! We wish we could stay to talk over old times
with our friends, but we must leave to fly home.

ln 1952. G.H.S. had a team. which. though they didnit
win too many of their games. was an encouraging en-
semble of spirit. Under the inspiring leadership of
Coach Bernie Woyeik and Assistant Coaches Leroy White
and Richard Lucas. the team indicated by their per-
formance during the Johnstown tie, that they may have
lost games, but they certainly hadnit lost spirit, and the
wholehcarted desire to win.
With co-captains Harry Steele and ,lim Marshall set-
ting pace, the team clicked. and played their best game
of the year at Johnstown. The first game of the year was
won by the Huskies at Amsterdam.
Men like Tom Foster, Wes Harris. Frank Malagisi, and
Dave Abdella helped make the team at times display a
remarkable sense of coordination which eventually
paid off at that last big
game. After the season
closed. the climax for the
players and coaches came at
, a banquet which was made
possible by local contribu-
tors. In one respect the sea'
son was not successful. but
in another. it most definitely
was a success

For the first time in the history of GHS, the 1952
golf team won the Sectional Two Championship at the
Schenectady Municipal Course on May 29th. Those who
participated in this achievement were Captain Albert
Sanges, ,lack Veghte, Stan Tracy. and Harry Hoffman.
This made the foursome eligible for the state sectional
at Newburgh on June 6. The team. being pushed hard,
managed to pick up fourth place at that time. All credit
for this splendid record was due to the efforts of Coach
For many years before the outbreak of Wrirltl War
II. the high school had very strong teams. These man-
aged to defeat all the rugged valley schools, but to the
knowledge of school officials, these teams never "cop-
ped" a sectional championship. After the war a number
of boys interested in the sport enticed the school offi-
cials to begin golf once again. For a number of years,
Mr. Check, supervisor of the sport, found .his support
in Larry Sanges and Larry White. Each year the teams
grew stronger, thereby earning the Championship. After
the war the first attempt at sectionals was at Troy, where
the team produced fourth place out of eight competing
teams. Each year saw the teams progress in pace until
in the spring of 1952 it reached the top.
The Kingsboro Golf Course has been the practicing
spot for the teams. However, after three years the of-
ficials of Pine Brook Golf Course offered the team per--
mission to use their course for three days a week.

Slnon, had one of their best seasons. This is shown
by their brilliant record.
The cross-country team topped off the season
by finally defeating Glens Falls in the Sectionals
at Schenectady after having dropped two meets to
this fine squad.
The team, led by co-captains Palmateer ahd Ken-
nedy, also competed in the lntersectionals at Schen-

After an undefeated 1951 season. the GHS win-
ning streak was brought to a halt by Amsterdam.
The loss previous to this had been in 1950. ln-
cluding practice games against smaller schools,
the CHS teams of 751-'52 had an unbroken string
of victories, numbering 39 wins with one tie. This
is the longest winning streak ever held by any
Although the team was not quite as strong as
the team of 1951, they were a very well-rounded
aggregation. Due to two lay-offs, the team never
quite regained their mid-season form.

to play college hall, and one player has gone into

The forty members of the '52 tennis squad
started practicing indoors during Easter vacation.
When school started. however. practice was halted
due to wet courts. Although the tournaments were,
limited to only two with Northvillc, Coach Lucas
feels that the squad acquired much knowledge and
skill during the season. Two outstanding female
competitors were Katherine Swart and Ellen Wood.
Before the war. tennis was an important part
of our sport curriculum. However, in 194-1, CHS
had its last such team. and it was not until after
the war. in 1951, that the tennis idea really got

the team, with all its newness, lost only two games:
those were with Northville.
lt is hoped that in future years the teams will
develop, and turn the sport into one which will
be widely participated in.

A little pluck, and a lot of skill and practice
go into what is called a C.H.S. badminton
player. While the basic rules and training are
given in class, many girls go to the after
school sessions where they perfect their game
and learn the fine points. This year a new
system, a ladder tournament, was used to find
the winner. There were twenty-two couples
participating in this elimination tournament.
The winning couple and G.H.S. badminton
champs are Delores Sanges and Crystie Com-

Although the girls, volleyball team this
year played one game only with another
school, they did exceptionally well. In their
tournament they beat Northville.
The girls also organized themselves into k
class teams for an interclass tournament. In
this tournament the juniors were the victors,
with the seniors second, and the sophomores
The girls organized into four teams because
of the large number of girls who went out for N
volleyball. These teams met in the girls gym
every Wednesday after school to practice. This
year's volleyball teams had a lot of fun and
gained valuable experience.
An integral part of winter sports is basket-
ball. Every Tuesday and Thursday, the
nswishi' of a ball being dropped in for a
' basket and the referee's whistle proclaimed an
'S W, E exciting basketball game. A large turn out of -

, After much practice and playing, an honor- N
I team was chosen. As in previous years, this '

t, l season was that the refereeing was taken over I
entirely by some of the players. Under Miss '

a compass with the twirlers forming the needle.
As the needle pointed in different directions the
band played appropriate selections.

To tho Oracle Staff. and the senior Class for
whom this volume has been prepared: Greetings
. . . and congratulations upon successfully com-
pleting your high school studies in Cloversville.
May this issue of the Oracle serve to remind you
of the fun. hard work, and achievement that has
marked these busy years in Gloversville High.
Few of us ever achieve all of the creative ac-
complishment which is possible for purposeful hu-
mans. It may be that it would not be well to spend
all waking moments with purpose. Life should en-
compass enjoyment, as well as production.
But may you, in large measure, enjoy much,
learn and do much as you begin again in the next
stages of a successful career.
