A glove factory that has excelled
in a famous "make" for years.
Glove factories are usually referred to
as shops. There are about eighty shops
These are dressed skins ready for the table cutters.
Soon this unfinished product will be made into table
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.

THE ORACLE STAFF
Gloversville High School
Gloversville, New York
Gloversville has always been described as an ideal community in
which to live. 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.

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

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
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
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.

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-
ADA H. BUSSE
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?

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. Since the cost has been
increasing in recent years, the Press Club has

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

"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

Meetings were held weekly under the advisor-

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.

officers to decide what affairs to discuss at the next meeting.
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.

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

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-

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-
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.

The band was given new life by the appoint-
ment of Vincent Cresanti as band director. 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

Members of the Student Council vote on a proposition to

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

for the elected members to serve as the leaders

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-
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
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'
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.

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
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
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 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
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.

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
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.

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

Early last fall a call was made to the four
classes of G.H.S. and seventy-two girls tried out
for cheerleading. 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
Janice Lawrence and Kathryn Ferrara as Co-
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.

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.
The coaches were gratified with the turnout
of freshmen. They will be looking forward to a
better season with a more experienced team.

spent many hours of practice perfecting routines

in their excellent performances. They were com-
mended on the precision with which they exe-
cuted their formations, the "G", the head of a
rabbit used in the bunny hop, the maze and

school spirit and add color to our local football

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
Coach Kobuskie and such players as John

The Jayvee games this year provided a great
deal of excitement for GHS fans. 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
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-

one point. Ray Parker netted two points on a
jump shot for the 38-37 victory.

For the first time a wrestling team has been
organized at G.H.S. 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.

old Stoftolano and William Pozefsky, had an ac-
tive season with five victories in eight meets.
Coach Jim Sinon, starting his eighth year,

220 yard dash, and relay events, was the high
point scorer. Bill Pozefsky was runner up in scor-

The cross country squad ot this year, which
was the best in the schooI's history, had an ex-
cellent season. 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
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.

cluded twenty-one teams from thirteen schools,

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.
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

Since the tennis courts open late in the season, Coach
White explains the correct method of handling the
racquet in front ofthe school.
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.

Players and coaches of the T955 baseball team
were deserving of considerable credit for win-
ning approximately half of their games while
playing a large share of the season without the
use of a home field.
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.
Highlights on the good side were the follow-

We all remember clearly our awe and pleasure when we entered G.H.S. for the
first time. 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
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. '

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

SCENES OF THE
T955 JUNIOR PROM

Such a delightful evening
was an occasion for fun and

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
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.-
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.

JUNIORS NOT SHOWN
SOPHOM ORE CLASS HISTORY
We were the last class to make up a three year junior high school. 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
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.
Maureen Martin points out to The Sophomore
Class Advisors, Mrs, Winifred Fleig and Philip
Verfucci, the class plans for 1955-56.

SOPHOMORES NOT SHOWN
Betty Lou Miller
FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
As members of the eighth grade, we were all thrilled to learn that in the fall
of 1955, we would enter into a four year high school. 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
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.

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.

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
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

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

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

technicians, the tanning industry has introduced a washable

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

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

skins to regain something of their original tex-

of drenching or pickling. The former calls for
another washing and the soaking for sev-

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
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

tanner, it will pass through seven departments

"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
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
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 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?
