These are dressed skins ready for the table cutters. Soon this unfinished product will be made into table cut gloves. It is a pleasure to introduce the reader to our theme. The staff chose early in 1956 the very thing which surrounds us, which affects our daily lives and habits, which has molded our commun- ity for years and years in the past and may con- tinue to do so in the future. And so our theme is gloves-the glove industry as it is established and operating in Gloversville and Fulton County. Although it may be paradoxical to say so, it is possible to see a close relationship between the unfinished product being made into a glove and the unfinished product being made into a matured, learned adult. Both will undergo many processes. The skin will be treated at a tannery and then shipped to a glove shop where the treat- ment of cutting and sewing and laying-off in turn will result in a warm, friendly pair of gloves. The child will be treated at the elementary level and then sent on to a secondary school where the treatment of speech, conduct, and responsi- bility will result in an understanding adult. To gain what we really mean by the theme, the staff invites you, the reader, to read the book closely and see if our analysis is true. nam ,X vim Y, M Z., 'im K ,Hs 5 4- 'M mf - ' - g' 'L 15 W W s - Q A wi. , 4 ,V M k,..k N, any 1 Z' .

Its some 80 or more glove plants, its allied industries, its varied industries such as the Brunswick Radio Corporation and the Glov- erville Knitting Company, its modern up-to-date retail establishments, its fine schools, its splendid churches, its recreational facilities, its close location to mountains and lakes, its surfaced roads, its attractive and beautiful homes were points that caused many a traveler to reconsider and make Gloversville his home. At the same time they gave great pride to the local citizenry who enticed hundreds of other people to settle here to enioy a future of happiness, prosperity, and brotherly love. Since no previous Gracle has ever featured the industrial life of the community, the T956 Oracle Staff decided to work into the yearbook a theme-"Gloves-A Handicraft Industry." Immediately the staff encoun- tered trouble on conflicting points in history about the establishment of Gloversville and the establishment of tanning. An attempt was made, therefore, to simplify the history of Gloversville and the account of the process of tanning. A debt of gratitude is owed by the staff to the Na- tional Association of Leather Glove Manufacturers and the Gloversville Chamber of Commerce for the use of valuable information that may be found within Glove Life H9551 and Yesterday and Today 119405. The staff would also like to express their thanks to J. M. Rubin and Sons for their co-operation in supplying merchandise and providing facilities for taking pictures. The T956 Oracle Staff hopes this edition will become a valuable volume in the many years to come. ill INTRODUCTION . ......,........,.. DEDICATION . ,.........,M,. ,....

Seldom is The opporTuniTy afforded To a class To honor a Teach- er whose undersTanding and unTiring efforTs for The beTTer- menT of GHS have vvon The admiraTion and loyalTy of The enTire sTudenT loody. His consTanT inTeresT and supporT in The class have been very noTiceable. We, The Class of 1956, affecTionaTe- ly dedicaTe This Oracle To CARMELO MICHAEL DIGIOIA GROWTH OF GLOVERSVILLE Up to T828 there was no place called Gloversville. In the course of the last quarter of the l8th century, there appeared three centers of settlement in what one day would make up the city of Gloversville. The first of these was Kings- borough. lt was settled by New Englanders whose ingenuity for selling and quest for knowledge and culture brought fame to the settlement. The second settlement was made along what today is referred to as East Fulton Street and Kingsboro Avenue. Although no definite name was assigned to this settlement, a number of homes were built within the vicinity. The third settlement was made along what today is called West Fulton Street in the section above Orchard Street. Again no definite name was assigned by its occupants. However, as more and more settlers erected homes within this third region, the more land was taken for settlement to the extent that eventually the first Store was built on Main Street in TBT 8. The tremendous transaction made by Elisha Judson convinced the settlers along the west branch of the Cayadutta Creek that they had an important industry in their area. In T825 he loaded a wagon with gloves and traveled to Boston. Within two months he had returned with S600 dollars in silver. This trip is said to have been the start of the large sale of gloves throughout the United States. As the glove industry progressed, naturally many allied industries sprang up along the Cayadutta Creek and its feeders. Since this was outside the Kingsborough region, it was natural to call the village after the many stumps that were found on its outskirts. However, Stump City was never an officially recognized name. The postmaster of the region in T828 decided to call the area Gloversville, but it wasn't until T851 that the village was incorporated. At that time Gloversville had a little over one hundred homes and a population nearly 3,000. Finally in T890 the state legislature passed an act to incorporate the City of Gloversville with Kingsborough as part of Gloversville. With the establishment of the F.J.8QG. Railroad in l87O, Gloversville continued to make great strides, ever increasing its factories and population to the extent where today it can point with pride to its handicraft trade and its population of 23,000. P .1 - Z5!!I9 7UglG95Z'-!Z55 The Gloversville Board of Education is an elec- tive body of nine members. The members serve for a term of five years without salary. To pro- vide continuity in membership an election is held every year. The Board meets on the second Monday of each month to transact business required by state edu- cational statutes and local board by-laws. These duties include authorization for payment of all bills, appointments to the teaching and non-teach- ing staff, consideration of contracts, and other similar actions. Special meetings can be called for particular problems. Each year a president is elected from the board members and standing committees are appointed by the president. The Superintendent of Schools is the chief administrative school officer, but he does not have a vote in board deliberations. During the 1955-56 school year Mrs. Martha Kunkel served as president, Mr. William Male as Superintendent of Schools, and Mr. Lewis Theurer as Clerk of the Board of Education and as an as- sistant to the Superintendent.

PETRASKE Secretary fo Superintendent Srenographer ACCO'-ml Clerk 5fef10QfaPl7e" Srenographer As you study the Oracle you must be im- pressed with the variety and inclusiveness of the activity pfogram of GHS. Some of you may be asking why we have all these activities-social, musical, dramatic club, sports, cheerleading, twirl- ing, publications, and student council. After three years in GHS I hope many of you seniors can testify to the values you have received in recre- ation, personality development, character build- ing, and leadership training. These activities are an invaluable supplement to the scholastic activi- ties of the classroom in developing the well- rounded personality needed for present day, dem- ocratic living. Here we have the opportunity to develop the attitudes and practices of good citi- zenship. ADA H. BUSSE Vice Principal ARTHUR FERGUSON Principal School and its activity program is one of so- ciety's principal agencies to help young people grow up and develop into mature, happy, use- ful citizens. Are we deriving the fullest possible benefit from the school program? Of course, the answer is quite obvious, that we are not in most cases. Wouldn't it be well to take stock and fre- quently ask ourselves if we can't profit more fully from the classroom and from participation in the activity program? A few try to participate in too many activities and as a result something more important may go by the board. But far too many are not an active participant in any activity and thereby are missing the opportunities which will do so much in preparing them for later life. There must be some activity in high school suit- ed to the needs of each one. Why not make sure next year that you are a member of some organi- zation which will be helpful to you and which you can help function better? Arthur Ferguson , My I 1L55W6!'"iisiii5.-.212 MRS.

MARIANNE SMITH Stenographer FRANCIS WOODWORTH Director of Guidance GUIDANCE DIRECTOR To the Class of T956 You have now reached the position on the edu- cational ladder where the time and effort you have expended during the past twelve years will begin to bear fruit. You have encountered various obstacles along the way and you have had to make decisions of consequence. Your teachers have done more than merely teach you a collec- tion of facts, they have tried all along the way to prepare you for the event in your lives with which you are now confronted. You are well armed to face the challenge of life in a competitive world. The rest is up to you. Whether or not you are planning additional formal education, you will be exposed to learning in the school of living experi- ence. Today your opportunities for success are the greatest of all time. All that remains is for you to grasp these opportunities and convert them into a satisfying and meaningful life. The other members of the guidance staff and I wish you every success in your future endeavors. May I add my sincere congratulations to the members of the GHS graduating class of l956, You have made that first step toward a success- ful and happy life by completing the difficult, but worthwhile task of high school graduation. The members of the faculty of Gloversville Jun- ior-Senior High School are vitally concerned that the students receive the very best education pos- sible. We are now in the process of re-examining the content and sequence of courses offered in our schools. We are also considering new courses that should be added to our curriculum to pre- pare our students to take their places in a demo- cratic society. We are anxious that the educational needs of all students in school be met, whether it is the need to prepare for further formal educa- tion or the need to be well prepared for immedi- ate employment, and we are constantly working to that end. When the children of the I956 gradu- ates of GHS attend our schools, and that time will come more quickly than you realize, we want to be sure that their education will be even better than the one you received. My sincere wish is that the education you have received in Gloversville schools may help you find real happiness in your future life.

This year the editor-in-chief, Mary Louise Wood, the Husky Growl staff, and the staff's ad- visor, Miss Mary Evelyn Connors developed an excellent eight page school paper that was pub- lished five times during the year. The staff's eagerness to enlarge the paper with new features resulted in such additions as the Growl-o-gram, favorite G.H.S. recipes, a fashion column, and class spotlights. The subscribers re- ceived the above additions and other enlarged sections: the music column, sports' page, and Estee Echoes, with enthusiasm. The editorial page with its apropos topics for every season was in- teresting and enlightening. The editorial page included an artistic cartoon, a guest editorial, and a new column, The Griping Growlers. Another new feature in the last issue of the Growl was the Last Will and Testament of the Class of i956. The Husky Growl was sold on a yearly basis in order to lessen the work of the staff and re- duce the cost of printing.

SER VICE KEY CLUB A club that is deserving of high praise for its excellent service for the past five years is called the Key Club. This organization was organized as the iunior branch of the local Kiwanis Club to perform services to the school and community. For many years now the club has rendered ser- vices in many ways to other organizations of G.H.S. lt offered a sizable donation to the foot- ball team for a moving picture camera and to the high school for the erection of a television an- tenna. Besides the usual activities, in the fall the mem- bers handled the scoreboard for all home games at Darling Field. During the basketball season, the club sold Scorecards to fill their depleted treasury. FELlClTA CLUB "Service to school and community" played a big part in the lives of the iunior and senior girls who made up the membership of the Felicita Club. The club's motto accounted for the girls servicing the Hospitality Shop at the Nathan Lit- tauer Hospital on weekends selling candy and other articles in order to make the patients more comfortable. This was well-handled by the chair- man of the Hospital Committee, Bonnie Archinal. The Felicita girls also worked for the local chapter of the Red Cross and solicited funds in the local door to door drives for benefits. During the basketball season they were practically in- dispensable at the Park Terrace Gym. The girls were called upon to usher and to sell candy and soft drinks.

The activities and financ- ing of projects were capably handled by its offi- cers: President, Alan Shwartz, Vice President, Fred Kunkel, Secretary, Bob Abele, Treasurer, Les- ter Schlanger, Corresponding Secretary, Harry Robinson. The officers and advisor decided upon an enlarged program for 1955-56 and, therefore, will increase membership in the Key Club. Financially sound, the organization has donated sums for worthy causes such as the Langvvorthy Scholarship Fund. Requests are scrutinized and studied carefully before a donation is granted.

The French Club officers are discussing problems with Miss Cassidy, advisor. Gerry Sarantos, president, presides over a meeting of the officers to decide what affairs to discuss at the next meeting. FRENCH CLUB French Club has done much to encourage stu- dents who are studying the French language to apply their learning. With its officers: President, Gerry Sarantos, Vice President, Martha Balzano, Secretary, Nancy Barter, Recorder, Jacquelyn Mar- tin, and its Advisor, Miss Caroline Cassidy, the club planned and conducted its meetings in French. Every month a phase of French history, a physical aspect of the land itself, or some his- torical or interesting city or province is discussed. French songs and short skits also composed the entertainment. The meetings of "Le Cercle Francais," French Club, were usually held during the noon hour of the first Monday of every month, except on occasions when guest speakers have appeared before the club. Speakers presented films of their trips to France and notes on interesting places visited or events which happened to them. Other French Clubs from surrounding schools attended the meetings. This gave the clubs new ideas for expansion and betterment. The important feature of the French Club which was begun last year was the exchange of corre- spondence between students in France and stu- dents in the local French classes. This proved to be very successful and did much to acquaint our students with the actual home and school life of young Frenchmen.

Some of the customary duties of the library workers were to check books in and out, to pre- pare the fine list and overdue notices, to keep the shelves correctly arranged, to process news- papers, to aid in the ordering of new books, to collate books, to prepare new books for circula- tion, and to draw up special bibliographies for many different subiects. This year the outstanding work of the club has been the making of a Library handbook. lt will be a valuable tool for new members as well as the present ones who from time to time may be changed from iob to iob. For many weeks the members prepared for the annual Book Week project. All bulletin boards in the school were gaily decorated with fancy papers, book iackets, and lettering. Weekly changes were made in connection with the sec- ond floor showcase and the bulletin board. Meetings were held once a month, alternating in the afternoon and the evening. Dues collected were used for CARE book fund to purchase books desperately needed in foreign countries. All this was done by the following officers: President, Phyllis McGillis, Vice President, Ruth Smalley, Secretary, Louise Tropia, Treasurer, Carol Girard. The librarian, Tillie M. Thompson served as ad- visor. LIBRARY CLUB Library club members take care of the main desk. They also handle other chores as this being done by Phyllis McGillis. Bulletin board display is being arranged by Library Club mem bers for Book Week. !

ORCHESTRA The T955-56 school year saw a big improve- ment in the orchestra under the direction of Ger- ald Burakoff. An attempt was made to add more members to the nucleus of thirty members to make the orchestra a bigger and better organi- zation. The ultimate goal was a fifty piece orches- tra. Although the orchestra was unable to perform at the Senior Play because of the nature of the play, it did offer selections in conjunction with assembly programs. The orchestra played a major part in the Spring Music Festival held on March 22. It upheld its traditional role of supplying the necessary and pleasing music for the graduation exercises on June 26. During November, G.l-l.S. sent three members, Patty Wood, Ralph Ambrosi- Mr. Burakoff is working very hard to produce a satisfactory orchestra. no, and Barbara Rose to attend the New York Sectional All-State Orchestra at Saratoga. The or- chestra entered into the festivities of the Fulton County Musical Festival at Northville during the second semester. The orchestra also used the rotating system. Section rehearsals for various instruments were held according to a plan established by William Cooney, Director of Music. Members of the or- chestra missed a class once every seven weeks. It proved to be a worthwhile experiment. The officers who worked with Mr. Burakoff, Secretary and Treasurer, were President, Bob Abele, Vice President, Louis Rosmanno, Historian, Shirley Gifford. One rehearsal after another produced excellent results.

His immediate task last fall was to re-organize the band by balancing the band with more color instruments. By the middle of September Mr. Cresanti had whipped into shape an effective organization of fifty-five members. The band participated in community parades and played at home football games. More im- portant were the drills performed on the football field between the halves. lt took many daily drills at Littauer Field and extra time on Saturday morning at Darling Field to execute the forma- tions in precision style. The band traveled to Sara- toga to keep our team in the undefeated ranks. Rehearsals pay off on Saturday afternoon when the football crowd are entertained. The financing of this proiect was underwritten by the Student Council. Later they sponsored a dance To repay the loan. Two members of the band, Bob Miller and Sid- ney Batty, were sent to the New York State All- State Band at Saratoga on November i8 and l9. ln the spring the band entered into the Spring Con- cert on April 19 at the Boulevard School. It also ioined the Fulton County Music Festival in North- ville on April 27, Mr. Cresanti served as band chairman. To aid in establishing a better band for G.H.S., the band resorted to the rotation plan. Such group instruction proved to be beneficial. Mr. Cresanti, the conductor, is pleased with the result at band rehearsal. sl Members of the Student Council vote on a proposition to improve spelling in our high school. gl , This year's Student Council had two new fea- tures. There was the addition of the freshman representatives and its president to the Council to represent the ninth grade. Second the Council found it had a new advisor, Richard Lucas. The first important item of business at the end of September was the election of officers: Presi- dent, Fred Kunkel, Vice President, Joe Andreana, Secretary Carol Frank, Treasurer, Jerry Wood. The Council planned its work according to its constitution. Its purposes were to promote the general welfare of the school, to provide for stu- dent co-operation, and to participate in the man- agement of school affairs, however, any action taken must be approved by the principal. All awards were made by recommendation of the coaches and advisors. These were approved by the Council if the students concerned had passed requirements set by the Council for an award. The Student Council offered excellent training for the elected members to serve as the leaders of tomorrow. This opportunity was constantly given each Tuesday at 8 A.M. as the Council met in session in room 304. Before the meeting, the officers assemble with Mr. Lucas to look over the agenda.

The Football Handbook Staff played an impor- tant role during the football season. ln the early fall, members were active in obtaining ads for the score card. The handbook was published four times through the effort of the members and ad- visors. The staff also sold copies of the handbook before and during each home game. The Commercial Department has supervised this protect for years. The publication has been a financial success every year. The profit is given annually to the Student Activities Fund. The Fund in turn has alloted the money to less profitable organizations or activities such as sports and pub- lications. The purpose of the handbook publication is to print informative material about the football game for the fans' use. The players' names and numbers, space for score keeping, and the names of the cheerleaders were printed upon the score card. The success of the Football Handbook was largely due to its advertisers, the football fans, and staff cooperation. The Club advisors, Miss Catherine Drury, Mrs. Winifred Fleig, and Mrs. Betsey Robison, and the officers: President, Ann Ruff, Vice President, Sue Keaveney, Secretary, Vincy Nigro, Treasurer, Ruth Smalley, worked effectively to produce this year's handbook.

This year many changes were made in the organization of Choir As before, it was com- posed of juniors and seniors, but it was divided into sections-a girls' choir and a mixed choir. Mrs. Cohan directed the mixed choir. They met three times a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in room 304-E. The girls' choir was under the direction of Clarence Getz. This section met on the same day in the auditorium. Choir "A" performed at the Christmas program, which featured "Break Forth, O Beauteous Hea- venly Light," a chorus from the Christmas Ora- tories by Bach. The choir also performed at the Spring Concert in March and later at the May Festival. Members from the choir were elected to participate in the Fulton County Festival. Mr, Getz conducts the girls' choir section of Choir "A' the auditorium. A change was made in the administration or- ganization of the choir. Instead of the usual of- ficers, Pat Viskup and Eleanor Robbins were elec- ted as librarians. These girls kept the music and folders of the choir in order, In the spring, the members of Choir "A" went on an outing at Caroga Lake. This was financed by the Spring Concert. 1 CHOIR "A" CHOIR "A"-First row, left to right: Susan Mills, Mrs. Ellen Cohan, Karen Olsson.

CHOIR " " Several changes were made in the organiza- tion of Choir "B." Although it is still composed of sophomores and freshmen, it has been divided into two parts, a girls' choir and a mixed choir. Mrs. Cohan directed the mixed choir. They met twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday in room 304-E. The girls' choir was under the direction Mrs. Ellen Cohan directs a mixed section of Choir "B" in room 304-E. of Clarence Getz. This section of the choir met twice on the same days in the auditorium. Choir "B" took part in the Christmas program. Two girls from the choir, .Lucinda Peligrino and Carole Girard, sang a solo part in "l Wonder As I Wander." The members also participated in the Spring Festival in March and the Music Festival in May. With Choir "A" the members of Choir "B" went on an outing in the spring at Caroga Lake. Trans- portation was financed by the Spring Concert. Due to changes, there were no executive of- ficers. The only office was that of the librarian which was held iointly by Audrey Champion and Diane Gifford. The duty of the librarian was to keep the music and folders in order.

BOOSTER CLUB Booster Club under the advisorship of Richard Aiken had the following slate of officers: President, Sue Keaveney, Vice Presi- dent, Betty Arnold, Secretary, Virginia Combothekras, and Treas- urer, Sara Barter. The purpose of this 'club was to support scholas- tic and sporting events of G.H.S. This cheering nucleus was present at pep, rallies and football games to boost the morale of the teams. The club was open to all high school girls. Meetings were held on alternate Thursdays at noon in the auditorium. RED CROSS COUNCIL The advisorship of the Red Cross Council was transferred to two G.H.S. instructors, Mrs. Dorothy Clark and Wellington Vande- Walker. Both were very instrumental in reorganizing the club. First, each homeroom elected a representative. These representa- tives met with the advisors to lay plans. During, the first semester, the representatives made a strong appeal for funds to the Na- tional Junior Red Cross Drive. During the second semester, the representatives volunteered to undertake any requests that were extended by the local Red Cross Chapter.

MOVIE PROJECTIONISTS The Proiectionist Club consisted of thirty-five boys who showed educational films and filmstrips to classes during their free per- iods. The boys, under the direction of James Cullen, were taught to operate movie proiectors, filmstrip machines, and other audio-visual equipment which teachers use to make learning easier and more interesting. The proiectionists also showed films for various community organizations from time to time. This group thus rendered a valuable service to both the school and the community. QUADRILLE CLUB increasing interest was shown by our students in dancing. The initial meeting of the Quadrille Club, held in November under the direction of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Miller, elected the follow- ing officers: President, Fred Kunkel, Vice President, David- Max- field, Secretary, Shirley Robbins, Treasurer, Abe Seroussi. Members advanced so quickly that it was possible for the callers to offer new drills. These were accomplished with the perfection necessary for exhibitions normally not attained until February. The more proficient members were invited to the Adult dance called by two name callers from the West.

FOOTBALL The 1955 season of the Gloversville Varsity Football team was one of the best in recent G.H.S. history. The team went undefeated in seven games. Two factors aided this achievement. The first was the expert handling of the team by our new head coach, Jack Weiss, and our new line coach, Richard Croucher. The second was the unity among the boys. This teamwork brought victory week after week. The team was not exceptionally strong on of- fense. The leadership of James lzzo and Tom Cornick, co-captains, served as a stimulus in mak- ing the team known for its defense. An open date or' "'-iober 22 gave the boys an opportunity to see the Syracuse-Maryland game at Syracuse. Coach Weiss seized upon the offer to acquaint the team with the tactics of the Maryland team. i955 FOOTBALL SCORES 1 1 'l Co-Captain RALPH JAMES IZZO LAURITANO Halfback Tackle G.H.S.

Before the committee made up of Miss Betty Meagher, Miss Marie Sarantos, Miss Shirley Andrews, Miss Ada Busse, Richard Lucas, and Arthur Ferguson, fourteen candidates were selected to represent the varsity and iunior var- sity squads in cheerleading. The squads were immediately called together by Miss Sarantos, advisor, and the varsity chose Loretta Picardi to be Captain with twoCo-Captains to aid her, Louise D'Errico and Patty Stratton. The iunior varsity squad chose Millie Semprevio as Captain with CHEERLEADERS Janice Lawrence and Kathryn Ferrara as Co- Captains. The cheerleaders created a great deal of school spirit at football and basketball games. The stu- dent body gave them whole-hearted support. They sponsored hops and pep rallies. Dances were held throughout the year to raise funds to cover expenditures for trips and uniforms. At the end of the season, the cheerleaders were invited as guests to the Touchdown Club Football banquet. They took an active part in the programming to make it interesting to all.

Vim 'i ABE SEROUSSI Guard JUNIOR VARSITY FOOTBALL The 1955 Junior Varsity Football team, coached by Richard Silvernail and Wellington VandeWalk- er, was hampered seriously by many injuries and by the constant shift of improved players to the varsity squad. lts curtailed strength had a great effect upon the season's scores. G.H.S. lost four games, in fact, Johnstown defeated the team twice. G.H.S. won against Amsterdam by con- sistent running on the part of Jim Clarkin, quar- terback, James Roscigno, fullback, and Edward Cosselman, halfback. The team had little experi- ence before its first game. RICHARD ART GILL SOULES Tackle Halfback The coaches were gratified with the turnout of freshmen.

The students of G.H.S. were very proud of their twirlers this year. Under the direction of Vincent Cresanti and the leadership of Betty Otto and assistant directors, Lynn Feldman and Jo Ann Marcoux, the thirty twirlers did much to enliven school spirit. The girls performed during the half periods at football games. They were also seen at the head of the G.H.S. band in the Veteran's Day, Memorial Day and Flag Day parades.

VARSITY BASKETBALL Coach Jack Kobuskie and some of the team players iust before the first game of the season. The basketball season was here again! With hopes high, G.H.S. entered into its first game with Amsterdam. The first half showed promise, but Amsterdam left the court with a major vic- tory. The team, then, won three games in a row. The fans thought the team was about to offer competition for first or second place in the league. Unfortunately, the games during and after the holiday season proved this to be false. Although Gloversville defeated Johnstown by eighteen points in the first game, it lost to the Twin City team by one point in the second game. Perhaps one of the factors contributing to our losses was that the players had little varsity ex- perience. The depletion of the squad by gradua- tion in T955 had its effect upon the T955-56 season. Coach Kobuskie and such players as John Stoffolano, Bruce Hobbs, and Charles Warner certainly tried their best to make the team a win- ning one. 46 Nov. Dec. Dec. Dec. Dec. Dec. Dec. Dec. Jan. Jan.

It was a hus- tling, fast, and fighting ball club of prospective varsity sharp-shooters. This spirit paid off with several victories and few losses. Such stalwarts as Brian O'Hare, Ray Parker, Butch Ruberti, Phil Semprevio, and Bob Winig proved too much for the opposition. The great playing of these and other boys resulted in a high- ly successful season under the direction of Coach Leo Hallenbeck. It was his second year at coach- ing junior varsity basketball. The Jayvee team suffered its initial defeat in the first Draper game. The visitors were in front throughout the game. However, the team made a strong comeback in the second game with Draper. A thrilling game was won against Fort Plain on the seventeenth of December. After losing three straight games, Coach Hallenbeck's club wound up on the winning end of the score, 38- 37. Fort Plain, with one minute to go, led with one point. Ray Parker netted two points on a jump shot for the 38-37 victory.

The team, which consisted of eighteen members, was instructed in the act of wrestling by Coach John Weiss. He was as- sisted by Wellington Vande-Walker. Three of the eighteen members, James Izzo, Eddie Cerasia, and Tom McFarlane, had had experience in wres- tling. They helped to lighten the work of the coach. The lightest member of the team, David Starr, weighed lil pounds, the heaviest, John Castiglione, weighed 210 Pounds. Members of the team met every day after school except Thursday at the Park Terrace School. The boys who were interested in wrestling met for the first time November 21. Coach Weiss briefed the fellows in what could be expected during the season. The coach then called for practice after the Christmas vacation. The team arranged a schedule of matches with other schools. Some of these failed to material- ize. Exhibitions were held between the halves of the basketball games. The boys, who turned out, enjoyed the sport. They found it a good conditioning factor. The coach hoped more of the younger boys would appear for the sport next winter. 1956 WRESTLING T956 WRESTLING SCHEDULE February 9fSaratoga . ., .

Gene Seeley was the individual winner for G.H.S. in every meet. The rest ot the varsity included Harry Robison, Al LaPorta, Bernie Fountain, Billy Arnst, Dick Bona, Chris Rossbach. The Harriers were coached by Jim Sinon and captained by Harry Robison and Chris Rossbach. The season's record as a whole was three dual victories, one triangular victory, and three meet championships. The highlights ot the season were the sectionals in which G.H.S. retained the class B-C-D-E Charripionships, and the state champion- ships at Bear Mountain in which G.H.S. came in second. The best team running by the squad was turned in at the Cobleskill interscholastic Run in which the G.H.S. team posted the lowest score in the history ot the event with three men among the first tour finishers. These were Seeley, Robi- son, and Bona.

Bottom: Our cross country stars feature the captured trophies of the 1955 season and included the largest field in the history of the event, was won by the G.H.S. Harriers by an overwhelming margin. Wayne Smeallie of Scotia erased the old record of seven years' standing. Seeley, Robison, and Bona finished third, fifth, and seventh respectively. The season opened with an inter-class meet. Three classes competed against each other. The Seniors won with a low score of 11. The Juniors were not too far behind with a score of 13. The Sophomores came in last with 23. To understand the way in which cross country is scored, the first runner to finish scores the lowest score and every runner finishing after him scores according to the place he finishes. Thus, 15 is the perfect score being the sum of 1-5. At the 14th annual Proctor Run at Utica, thirty teams from sixteen schools participated. Glovers- ville High came in fifth behind four class "A" schools. In that run, this was the best showing to date. This marked the first time G.H.S. had de- feated the powerful Mont Pleasant. The scores were 147 to 169. OF 1955 Individual honors were won at the sectionals. At Central Park, Seeley, who had set a new record at llion, won a gold medal for first in Class Robison won a silver medal for second place in Class Later Seeley won an oscar for 10th place in the State Championship Run at Newburgh. The nucleus for 1956 will consist of William Arnst, Barney Galinsky, William Banovic, Robert Brown, William Wheeler, Gilbert Wagar, Carl Feinstock, and Dick Johnston. Future prospects look good as these boys running as Jayvees defeated all other groups in their class and lost only to Class "A" Nott Terrace by a small margin. 1955 CROSS COUNTRY RECORD Date Meet Results Sept. 17-lnterclass Meet ...... ...c.. 1 .

Thirty-tour students, seventeen girls and seven- teen boys, reported for the first call for the 1955 tennis team, the team was coached by LeRoy White. This number dwindled to ten active par- ticipants due to the lack of facilities. It was diffi- cult to gain the use of one of the gyms. The baseball teams had priority since they could not use Darling Field. Then, too, the wet Spring left the tennis courts at Darling Field in such a bad and wet state that it was impossible to use them until the season was over. David Slater, Bert Vonderahe, Mike Pozefsky, Jim Becker, and Chuck Recesso were some of the outstanding players. The team had a brief season because most of its matches had to be cancelled. 1955 TENNIS TENNIS-First row, left to right: Paula Kolberg, Dave Seld, Dale Nicholson, Bob Williams, Bert Vonderahe, Bob Nelkin, Addison Gilbert, Freida Kolberg.

At the start of the season, most opponents were on their diamonds at least three weeks be- fore Darling Field could be used. ln fact, the G.H.S. team played their first two games with no outdoor practice. Near the end of May our boys started to click, only to be forced off the field again by wet weather. This time two games had to be cancelled, and four more postponed during the twelve day lay-off. The boys never completely shook off this second blow although they finished strong.

Our unsureness began to vanish with our first responsibility, the Sopho- more Hop, which we planned with eagerness and whose success assured us of our place in G.H.S. The year passed so swiftly that the football and basketball games and even the final exams were over before we knew it. We all looked forward to a successful year as Juniors. The first day of school finally arrived with the immediate task of appointing a committee to select our rings. We attended all sport activities. Our choir concert was all fuss and frills, the outing was all fun and frolic. Finally we enthusiastically began planning for our Junior Prom. After a great deal of discussion, the theme "Under Paris Skies" was chosen, with such decoration as French street signs, black crepe paper silhouettes, French scenes, and silver blue stars. In the center stood a typical French cafe scene with checked table cloth and wine glasses. The Prom was a success, for parents and teachers complimented us on our originality of artistic expression. We became seniors. ln our first assembly with Mr. Ferguson, Mr. Woodworth, and others as our speakers, the realization dawned on us. The underclassmen stood as we took our seats. That day was the beginning of a very full and successful year as a senior class. Our football team was undefeated. Our cross-country squad, which participated in the state sectional at West Point, had the best season in its history. Then the never ending activities and work began: taking senior pictures, wprking on the Husky Growl, gathering material for the Oracle and electing our officers, with Bill Yanno, president. Tryouts for the play were held and when the production, "Curtain Going Up" appeared, it was acclaimed a success. More things had to be accomplished-seeking admission to colleges and other types of schools, and signing up for College Board exams. Before we knew it the College Board Scholastic Aptitude Test was given and midyears arrived. More exams! The New York State Regents Scholarship was given in February. Soon our Senior themes were due. In spring we planned our awards assembly and greeted the coming of the Sen- ior Ball with excitement and preparation, for we were sure it would be a success, as it was. There was a lot of last minute cramming for exams, but finally gradu- ation arrived. We were all pleased with ourselves, and as we left the Glove Theater, we hoped that we would havezpshwtany fruitful years outside G.H.S. as we had in G.H.S.

SENIOR Gloversville High School Seniors gained an op- portunity to teach classes when the ninth annual Senior Day was held on December 9, 1955. On this day the seniors traded places with their teachers and school officials. Some seniors gained experience in teaching more than one class and in monitoring study halls and homerooms. The program dates back to i946 when the idea for Senior Day was adopted by the school staff at the suggestion of two seniors. Since then school officials have strongly backed the plan as an aid to education. Many surrounding schools have adopted this plan. Regular teachers of the classes rated student teachers and answered any questions that may Abe Seroussi practised with a group of students before The Art room pupils receive individual attention from the he was confronted with a class. class instructor, Alan Shwartz. Mr Woodworth acquaints the Guidance Director, Jack Davin with the office appointments of the day. DAY OF 1955 have been beyond the comprehension of the new instructor. Student teachers were rated as excell- ent, good, fair, or poor depending on how well they had performed their duties in the opinion of the customary teacher. The principal for the day was William Yanno, chairman of the senior day committee. Scott Houghteling acted as vice-principal. Guidance Di- rector was Jack Davin. E r n e st DuMond, Curriculum Coordinator, worked with the Senior Day Committee of Con- stance Barone, Mary Ann Ganster, Fred Kunkel, Loretta Picardi, Millie Semprevio in setting up the assignments. The committee was also aided by Miss Esther M. Jones and Carmelo DiGioia, senior class advisors. At noon there was plenty of discussion about the problems each had encountered or would encounter.

SCENES OF THE T955 JUNIOR PROM Those without partners were not left unattended. The chaperones enioyed their refreshments in the Boulevard cafeteria. Such a delightful evening was an occasion for fun and frolic, even for faculty mem- bers, Mrs. and Mrs. Wood. Z5 55 Fi999FDE 5... JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY "l made it" was the cry heard at the end of the Sophomore year. With this echoing throughout the halls, many of us automatically established ourselves as JUNIORS. In the fall we were proud to see so many of our members taking part in the school sports' program. How we waded through the mud at Darling Field to see Bruce Hobbs, Jerry Wood, Larry Baird, Leo Sicilia, and Vinnie DiGiacomo help the football team reach its first undefeated season in years. We couldn't keep up with the Cross Country runners, but we knew Carl Feinstock, and Bill Wheeler were doing their bit for the sectional championship. Then, on the court where we saw Bruce Hobbs, John Stoffolano, Charlie Warner, Dick Stewart, and Dick Bona trying desperately to uphold the tradition of the Kobuskie Warriors. For spring sports there were Vinnie DiGiacomo, Kenny Blow, and Bruce Hobbs try- ing their best for G,H.S. Of our girls, Janice Lawrence, Kathy Ferrara, Carole Rossi, Pat Ponticello, Lynn Bown, and Sistie Aulisi led the crowd in yelling "G.H.S.- Team." We held our own scholastically, too. There were usually between 20 and 30 iuniors on the honor lists. We were sure Jerry Wood, Sue Mills, Sara Barter, Steve Clemens, Judy Brennen, Sue Garonzik, Janice Lawrence, and Michael Durkee would uphold the scholastic honors of the Class of l957. The best day of the year was the arrival of our rings. The design carried the traditional Nick Stoner and the numerals, l957. We had a hard time choosing the style we wanted, but once the rings were on our fingers, we knew we had selected the only one for us. The high point of the year was the prom-Our Junior Prom. We planned and saved, and before we knew it, May 4th had arrived. We were busy decorating the Boulevard School, cutting and curling our hair, pressing our gowns and suits. Didn't we look nice for the formal event? Pretty couples voted as they arrived. Was everyone surprised at the selection of the King and Queen! June was here. Teachers were stressing certain points. We listened with due respect, when the examinations arrived, we were successful-not all, but enough to make a good size senior class. As we thought over the year, we became aware of how much our school Alma Mater meant to us . . . the good times . . . hard work . . . the good friends, . . . and teachers who did us proud. Now we are ready to accept the challenge of a senior year, to accept the greatest achievement which G.H.S. has to offer, a certified diploma.

We were eager to cross the threshold into senior high school. Although we might have been disillusioned by the announcement of a four year high school, we took it in stride and recognized our advantages over the freshmen. The pace was fast and the amount of learning great. Many of us were beset with grade difficulty. We pitched in and studied. This studying had its value for many of us continued to be listed on the honor roll. Among these were: Wil- liam Arnst, Penelope Wood, Ellen Barter, Nancy Jones, Jane Lynch, Jean Lynch. Honors were extended to the following sophomores to represent the class at Student Council meetings: William Arnst, Esther Marshall, Roxanne Ridgeway, and Penny Wood. We joined many clubs and helped the upperclassmen in many ways. We seemed to be blessed with assembly periods, especially the program featuring the choir from Union College. There were many extracurricular activities such as football, basketball, cross- country. The football stars were Butch Ruberti, Butch Cannizzo, Joe Liebl, Ray Parker, Fred Dougherty. The basketball stars were Butch Ruberti, Brian O'Hare, Mike Pozefsky, Fred Dougherty, Ray Parker, Last, but not least, were the cross- country stars: Bill Arnst, Barney Galinsky. The sophomores who led the cheers for these boys were Joyce Yanno and Nancy Jones. Our ambition was to gain enough units for the members of our class to register in the iunior homerooms. This we accomplished in June to the point where some 230 sophomores would be ready to accept the mantel of the iunior robe of G.H.S. fri.-FEI SOPHOM ORE MAUREEN MARTIN President ROVENA SCRIBNER Vice President CLASS OFFICERS Maureen Martin points out to The Sophomore Class Advisors, Mrs, Winifred Fleig and Philip Verfucci, the class plans for 1955-56.

On September 7 we dashed back to school and found that the Freshman class was being given the first and second floors of the Estee Junior High School. Although this dampened our spirits somewhat, we soon were overjoyed in examining our program cards in finding we were being assigned to the high school study halls. For a time we were bewildered by the many different classes and procedures. It didn't matter, we were members of Gloversville High School. As soon as we were adiusted, we nominated a person from each freshman homeroom to serve on a nominating committee. The committee offered us a slate of candidates for offices and Student Council. Miss Esther Amos and Mr. Andrew Palmer, our advisors, immediately began to work with our newly elected officers. Jim Clarkin, Guy Ciaccio, and Phil Semprevio aided the football team in their undefeated season. We also helped the cross country team to remain champions by giving them strong competition through the efforts of Dick Johnston. Many other freshman boys participated in the Jayvee sports. These boys did their bit in basketball: Phil Semprevio, Guy Giaccio, Jim Clarkin. Our class made a big hit all through our dramatics club. ln December the Scitamard Dramatics Club offered the public "A Night in Christmas Reading." The presentation was well-received. Now that the year has almost passed, we look forward to the time when we shall be labeled as sophomores. This would mean registration in the high school building and the feeling of really belonging to Gloversville High School. si'-M PHILIP SEMPREVIO President NANCY GIFFORD Secretary FRESHMAN CLASS QFFICERS CAROLE DYE A Vice President JOAN LAZARUS Treasurer The Freshman Class advisors, Miss Esther Amos ancl Andrew Palmer, listen to Philip Semprevio, President, explain Freshman activities.

In 1740 The English crown had awarded This land or region To Sir William Johnson. He rec- ognized The value of sTarTing a glove business and offered a bid To The people of PerTh, ScoTIand, To come over and seTTIe in The Mohawk Valley. These people of PerThshire were skilled arfisans in The arT of Tanning and glovemaking. IT wasn'T long before The skins Tanned by The Indians were being converTed inTo gloves which were Then noT only sold and used in The immediaTe region buT were also hawked by peddlers To The easT and The vvesT in The Mohawk Valley. To keep up wiTh "There is nofhing like leaTher" These Three men have iust finished pickling a batch of skins. All skins must be so Treaied in a revolving drum as seen in The background. A fashion expert examines a pigskin that is about to be shaved by a regular operator. The fashion expert sees for herself that many different kinds of skins are used for glove-making in Fulton County. "Leather is a product of nature" The fashion expert inquires about the blemishes in the pigskin. this industry, some of the settlers entered into the business of tanning leather. The first such mill is reported to have been established near Johnson Hall of Johnstown, New York, so the area gained its start and became well-known for buckskin and buckskin gloves. The American Revolution split the settlers into two groups. Many of the Scots remained loyal to the throne of England, this exodus suspended the industry. As soon as the Revolution of 1775 was over, those who had remained decided to return to their former occupation, others entered into the tin industry that had been started by a group of men in the Kingsborough region Cnow part of Gloversvillej. The peddlers of tinware bartered tin basins, cups, and other utensils for deerskins which they brought back with them to be made into gloves. On a second trip they sold not only gloves but also tinware. Operations continued at a slow pace until T809 when Talmadge Edwards came to Kings- borough at the request of the leaders of that com- munity. Talmadge had learned the secret of tan- ning leather in England from the craft gild. This information he taught to the people of Kings- borough. It was a great aid in producing a more flexible deerskin. Edward's knowledge of treating "Take a piece of leather and. . ." Another lab chemist is washing a skin. All kinds of tests are made in this experimental laboratory. a raw skin in order to preserve it from decay, and to make it durable and finished, created a boom in Fulton County. The lndian method of scraping clean the hair and flesh surfaces and pounding into the deerskin a mixture of the animal's brains and fibrated soap root was sur- passed to offer the public an attractive skin that could be made into gloves. Change after change took place in the tanning processes, until today tanning is looked upon as a chemical process. ln spite of all economies introduced into the busi- ness, it still takes months of handling. Skins arrive at a Tannery from all parts of the world in the custom of the world from which they come. That means that a skin will either receive the chrome tannage process or the oil The leather chemist is preparing a solution to be tested on the skins upon the workbench. tannage process. Since each one is a long process in itself, an attempt will be made to show the handling that every skin undergoes. The first process is soaking. Because raw skins are dirty and full of grease, packed with salt, they are placed in revolving drums filled with soft, clear water. With constant motion, the skins undergo a good soaking and are soon removed as clean. The next process is to remove the hair. This is done by applying a pasty solution of slaked lime and sodium sulphide or red arsenic to the flesh side of the skin so that it can pene- trate and loosen the roots of the hair. In three hours the hair is readily removed by hand or machine. The skins are again replaced within the After years of experimentation and with the aid of college technicians, the tanning industry has introduced a washable skin called launderleather. in a glove factory the fashion expert is told that these skins are ready for table cutting. drums for another thorough washing. Some skins, such as mocha, undergo a long soaking in dead slacked lime. The skins are occasionally stirred in these vats and a fresh solution of lime is added over the weeks. This results in loosening the sweat glands and hair roots as well as the removal of animal fat and grease and a swelling Cplumpingj of the skin to about twice its normal thickness. Then the swollen, slippery, rubbery skins under- go a fleshing process. Since the skins have a layer of flesh still sticking to the skin, this flesh is removed by machine or a hand process called beaming. The supervisor and a worker are critical about the quality of these skins. The industry uses cape, mocha, peccary, doeskins, buckskins, and many others for glove making. "observe the way the fibers are knit together In the cutting room the fashion expert watches a table CUNGI' as he goes about his work deciding iust how many pairs of gloves he will be able to produce out of these skins The same skins are then passed to the deliming section of the shop. The skins are first washed in soft, warm water and then placed in a puer which is a solution of chemicals. This allows the skins to regain something of their original tex- ture-soft and pliable. Then follows the process of drenching or pickling. The former calls for another washing and the soaking for sev- eral hours in a vat containing warm water and some cereal flour pea-meal or bran. The latter calls for the placing of the skins in a re- volving drum with a solution of sulphuric acid and salt. The acid separates the fibres and re- In recent years fabric gloves have become im- portant. ln this room bolts of cloth are un- raveled and cut up as seen by the worker at the left.

Each one is scrutinized carefully before packing. moves the last traces of lime. The salt neutralizes the acid to keep it from eating away the fibres. Both processes, however, swell the skins. For the last time the skins are degreased by either a hydraulic press or a kerosene bath, the latter calling for a salt bath, to remove the kerosene. This completes the preliminary steps through which all skins must go. They are still raw skins, but are in a proper condition to be tanned. At this stage the skins are referred to as "in the white." From this point on the skins are subiected to special methods. In each the main idea is to permanently separate the fibres of the skin, sof- ten it, and by chemical change produce the sub- stance known as leather. Under each method an interesting process is staking. After tanning, the skin is given to the knee-staker in order to soften it and to add pliability so necessary in glove leather. The hand "stake" is a vertical post about three feet high, on top of which is a dull semi- circular knife. The skin is thrown over this with the flesh side down. The staker grasps the op- posite edges of the leather and works it back and forth over the dull knife edge, using his knee against the skin to produce the desired tension upon the leather. The entire skin is worked over the blade until it is soft and flexible. mm ...H ...f......a. Under each method before the skin is dyed, it is sorted and graded by workers who decide the kind of gloves each skin can best produce, the colors it will take most satisfactorily and the kind of finish to be applied. Where the method calls for a mixing of the skin and dye in a drum, the skins are then restaked. This completes the process called tanning of leather. The Manufacturing of Leather Gloves Since no two skins are exactly alike, it has been necessary for centuries to make gloves by hand. Although mass production and technology have not been applied in major ways, yet it is possible that one day the many shopowners will find the technology needed to revolutionize the glovemaking industry. After the leather has been procured from a tanner, it will pass through seven departments of a glove factory before it is completed as a This factory recently introduced assembly line production. Each woman does a small part of the glove. This fashion expert learns first hand how gloves are sewn by a glovemaker. "that man cannot hope to reproduce it." The woman operator is sewing on a thumb. lt takes a good year for a glovemaker to learn this skill. glove. The fascination of such is seen in the ex- pressions of fashion experts who frequently come to Gloversville to gain firsthand information. lf the leather is heavy, it is necessary to reduce or thin or split it on a shaving machine having a sharp blade. The leather is then sorted by ex- perts. They not only look for defects but also estimate the grade and weight as most suited for men's, women's, or children's gloves. The skins are next taxed by men long experi- enced in cutting. They can judge how many pairs of gloves can be cut from a certain number of skins. The principal method is table cutting. The ist s-ska" rl! .uf 133 table cutter will iudge the skins with rule to in- sure an absolute fit for a certain specified hand size. He does this by examining the skin on both sides, eliminating weak spots and grain blem- ishes. To determine full capacity, the skin is stretched out to its fullest length ancl width. Then the skin is cut and each cut is called a trank, that is, an oblong piece of leather cut iust the size of the glove pattern with little or no waste. Each trank is paired and matched, then folded in the center and pulled down to the pattern to insure that it will lie straight and fit the hand perfectly. The thumb is cut separately, first being cut in length, then widened out. The fourchettes are so cut that each one corresponds in the same amount of leather and matched in color. The cut- ting department of a glove factory may include The fashion expert catches a gauge glove maker in finishing a pair of gloves.

The glove is moved on to the sixth step, the laying-off department. The gloves are rolled in damp cloths until the moisture has penetrated, and are then fitted on steam or electric-heated brass forms shaped like hands. First the thumb is'laid-off on its separate form and then the glove hand and fingers. Grain finish gloves are polished on a soft felt wheel to give a glossy finish. Vel- vet finish gloves are brushed lightly. The final step is the stock room where the gloves are examined. After this, each approved pair of gloves is wrapped and boxed ready for shipment. ln a factory showroom the owners examine one of the latest innovations that may please the buying market.

"This is where our money goes, noi' only info The vaca'l'ion club, buf also info 'The savings account" CITY NATIONAL BANK AND TRUST COMPANY MEMBER FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION Gloversville, N.Y. The glove shops of Gloversville use all kinds of leather in making gloves-deerskin, goatskin, and wild pigskin. The bulk of all gloves is made from different types of sheep- skin leathers. Sheepskin includes: capes, mochas, degrains, suedes, and chamois. V One small order is being readied for shipment. Similar and larger shipments are made to all parts of the United States during the year. As the reader comes to the end of this year- book so has another class completed its road through the halls of learning in the Gloversville Public School System. The rough unfinished stu- dent who came into high school a few four years ago has been polished and re-polished within that space of time. In the classroom he has learned and he has been taught the wonders of the world about him, and on the playing field and on the stage of the auditorium he has ap- plied these lessons to his fellow man. He is be- ginning understand how much more he will have to learn, if he and his like are to be success- ful, financially and morally in this great wide world of ours. There ends our theme. The raw skin from an animal, acquired by a local tannery and routed to a glove shop, has been pickled, dyed, stretched, cut, and sewn. It has undergone ever so many processes to come out as a beautiful pair of gloves. The buyer of such may marvel at the make, he may even exclaim admiration and glowing satisfaction with the Gloversville-made product. Yet the story continues-how will he use this beautiful pair of gloves? X' TA LOR PUBLISHING CO.
