FRO 11 LOG SCHOOL T0 CENTRAIIZED SCH001'
USSELL srtuated rn St Lawrence County anclent
huntrng ground of the Iroquors was funded rn 1805
by Russell Attwater who looked at the vrrgrn territory
rlch rn fish and game and considered rt well worth the
petty sum he pard Soon people largely from Massachu
setts and Vermont came by ox cart to settle the new
land Wrthrn four years a small log school was built
upon one of the high hrlls north of the village over
lookrng the pleasant valley below through which the
Grasse rrver wmds from east to west Thrs rs the rrve
known to the Indians as NI KENT SIA KI ffull of
big hshesj The building was heated by two fire places
and was furnrshed wrth a pulpit for use rn rellgrous
services as the first church was not buxlt untrl 1845
From the openmg of this first school under the
dlrectlon of Rollin Smith tn 1808 to the dedlcatlon of
the new wing of Knox Memorial Central School rn
1957 any observer of education rs rmpressed wlth the
steady progressive sprrrt evidenced by the people rn
therr efforts to provide for the children the very best
avarlable at any partrcular trme From a budget of 3250
rn 1809 to a budget of 3160 000 ln the present day
hnancnl sacrxhce has be n necessary One hundred
thirty eight puprls were enrolled for five months a year
rn seven schools rn 1820 Four hundred eighty seven
pupils are now enrolled rn three schools rn the central
In 1860 after the log school burned the Arsenal
was obtarned for use for the first trme as a pubhc
school At that time the length of the school term w as
declded by the state of the farm work and the SIZC of
the winter woodprle and students furnished their own
rharrs Teac iers were paid from S150 to S2 00 per
week and were boarded around Everyone wanted to
board the teacher after sprmg housecleanrng and before
In 1905 the pubhc and school hbrary was estab
hshed wrth 2100 volumes and today there are some ten
thousand books for reference purposes as well as for
lersure time readmg In 1860 however the only refer
ence book was Websters Unabridged Drctronary and
for lelsure txme the students attended evenrng spelling
schools hrrngrng their own lanterns or candles
In 1875 country schools marntamed two terms a
veir There w as an extra ten weeks nn the ullage school
and there were two departments maintained ln the vrl
lage school prrmary and advanced
The followmg year found the law bemg changed
concerning the hcensrng of teachers and they could not
thereafter obtain a hcense until they were sixteen years
of age Prevlously they had been Issued at the age of
fourteen Common practice found teachers or head
teachers younger than students rn school but so eager
were the people for education that thrs lack of maturity
on the part of the teacher drd not seem to hamper the
By 1888 the primary department rn the vrllage had
grown to approximately forty students and three terms
now bemg held one of twelve weeks and two of ten
weeks each With hundreds of dollars today bemg
spent for maps globes charts microscopes film strip
machines and other teachmg aids rt rs interesting to
note that charts for readmg and models for physiology
were only coming rnto use at this trme
The year 1890 found the first Regents examrnatrons
bemg grven rn Russell and the first Arbor Day bemg
observed By 1893 attempts were bemg made to enforce
the attendance law and wlth the establishment of the
pubhc and school hbrary ln 1901 the stage was set for
the chartering of the Unron School and its academrc
department opened in September 1905 for the first trme
The return of Seymour H Knox and Bishop Lewis
to Russell and their decrsron to do somethrng for the
drstrrct wrll be adequately covered elsewhere but rt rs
rnterestlng to note that eleven years after the dedrcatron
of the Knox Memorral I-hgh School a few women form
er Arsenal students held a prcnlc and plans were made
for 1 larger group PICUIC the followrng year This prcnlc
developed lnto the Old Arsenal Teachers and Students
Assocratron whrch was organized rn 1921 and which
down through the years to the present time has found
people returning each june from all sectrons of the
country to attend the meetrng to enloy the prcnxc lunch
and to remlnrsce of youthful days spent rn the Arsenal
A strong force for educatron thrs organrzatlon was
quick to note the advantages of centralization and many
of the workers for centrahzatron came fom the Old
Arsenal Teachers and Students Assoclatron XVork on
ccntrahzatnon began late rn the thrrtres and was brought
to a completion rn October 1911 when wrth nearly four
hundred votes cast only svcteen opposrtron votes were
registered Wxtli one of the greatest mayorrtres rn favor
this second centrahzatron rn St Lawrence County open
ed on the first of july 1912 with twenty three dlstrrcts
The twenty fourth district was added ln 1913
Centrahzatron brought new problems not the least
of w hrch w as room for the greater enrollment and
school authorrtr s were forced to operate eighteen schools
the first year and to again bring the Old Arsenal into
use for grades 16 rn the village Thirty one persons
made up the faculty and plans were rmmedrately made
for the burldmg of the wrng whrch rs bemg dedrcated

Old Arsenal Used As a School
OLD ARSI:NAL DA1 S
QTIIIS paper read by Mmnre A VanBuren Old
Home Imght rn Russell rn 1915 tells of the Arsenal
HE war ended happrly and the arsenal xx as no longer
needed as a mrlltary station Select school were held
lt xx hxch was attended by our fathers and mothers
but It w as not untrl after the old log school house burn
ed that the arsenal became a hall of learnrng
The loxx er room xx as furmshed wrth wooden bench
es ln the upper were tables deep gashed and carved
wrth rnltlals Erght or ten puprls would srt around a
table rn chairs xx hrch were the personal property of the
scholars Sometrmes when a chalr became weak or
broken an enterprrsrng boy would exchange rt for the
safer one used by the teacher w ho unsuspecting danger
xxould find hrmself on the floor amrd the turns The
rooms were heated by large stoves whrch had a habrt of
smokrng and there were old stove prpes lrable to come
apart or fall down any txme Once upon a trme some
of that stove prpe drsappeared took unto rtself as rt
were xxrngs and flew away That remrnds me of an
other mystery I do not refer to the sllly yarns of the
ghosts amusrng themselves rolhng the cannon balls on
thc thrrd Hloor I refer to a coat a lmen coat that was
xxorn by one of the teachers during school hours and
hung by the chimney when he left the bulldmg That
coat drd serxrce durrng the fall term and at the begrn
mag of the xxmter term xx as ragged and very far from
clean One noon the grrls held a consultation Several
suggestrons were offered and at last rt was decxded that
the coat should be washed 1roned and patched That
night as thc teachers hung rt rn rts accustomed place he
Laxe lt one long lrngerrng lovrng look thrnkmg per
haps that no nore familiar object would ever meet
hrs gaze In the mornlng the hall xx as empty The coat
xx as gonc and nevcr seen aagnn
O1 cold days xx hen the xx 1nd xxould xx hustle through
the many paned xxrndoxxs xxe xxould gathcr round the
stoxc and all went merrrly tnll the teach r xxould say IH
stern toncs It that xx hlsper rs not stopped you wrll all
Wrtlr no fear of bacterra mlcrobes or other germs
the scholar of the old days found therr supreme hap
prness rn passing the water It was a pleasure that never
grcxx old though of darly occurrence and happy was
that chrld who had the prrxrlege of passrng the water to
hrs thrrsty school mates xx ho drank trccly from a tm
cup somctrmcs old and rusty
In thosc days we dld not haxc professors wc had

resourceful rn Hndrng pleasure and exercrse In the
summer xxe xxould play kc p house over rn the Knox
pasture under the heautrtul trees by the srde of the

In the fall there xx as alw ays an abundant supply of

I REME lIBl:R
ES well do I remember that s1zzl1ng day rn the
summer of 1908 when I recexved a letter from my
mother Informing me that Albert Hughes trustee rn
the Hughes Drstrxct wanted to h1re me to teach h1s
school' I was attending summer school 1n Chnton at
the t1me and hke any young prospectlve school marm
I was perfectly thrilled to receive such news He would
pay exght dollars a week why that was money rxght
out of this world'
You can well lmagxne that I wasted no t1me m
w rltmg home Ot course I would be glad to teach the
school' For eu ht dollars a week seemed lxke a fortune to
me just thnnk my entzre salary tor the year would be
3256 as there w ere only 57 weeks of school
As was the custom then our school opened IH Aug
ust The early opening was caused by the fact that
usuallv we had a long enforced vacatlon In February
and March when the weather and roads were bad
The schnol was loacted about two and one halt
mules from the village As I walked I had to leave home
around 15 IH the mormng to arrrve there at 9 O0
oclock The darly sesslon lasted from nme unt1l four
but I usually stayed after school to sweep and txdy up
The room ltself was heated by a box stove Into
whose yaw nmg mouth the cluldren or I It seemed were
forever te dmg the blg chunks whlch were pxled across
one corner of the room smce there was no woodshed
The sn double seats and desks for the puplls faced the
back ot the room while my desk was on a ra1sed plat
form I still retarn vlvrd plctures ot that crude wooden
desk Its cover llfted up and many tlmes when I hur
rledly raxsed lt all my books would be toppled to the
floor wlth a resoundlng bang
In nrce weather we enjoyed the playground out of
doors The favorlte games were Steal Wedges Hrde
and Seek and Tag
Of course hfe was not w lthout nts mental or phys1
cal hazards whrch rn retrospect seem amusmg but at
the moment were extremely real and equally terrlfymg
One such lncxdent occurred one mornmg when I had
just arrlved and was decrdedly upset to hear a pecullar
scratchlng nolse commg from one of the outsnde base
ments Not belng sure whether the cause might be man
or beast I stood for a moment undecided whether to
run msrde and lock the door aaglnst any Intruder or to
brave the unknown drsturber of the mornings peace
Fxnally I summoned all fny courage stepped warlly to
the llttle burldlng and poked a reluctant nose through
the door At last the culprit to my extreme amusement
I saw a large brown porcupme
There were slx chxldren enrolled Eunlce Morrow
the eldest was m the fifth grade the others lncluded
the three Sullxvan chxldren Florence Guy and Ruth
Leon Howland and Mamie Fenton Late ln the fall Mr
Fenton moved hrs famlly to the vxllage where he and
hrs wlfe operated the store which IS now the IGA
store This left me only live puplls Later In the year
Goldre Curtis entered
Wlth so tew puplls there was no competltron and
lnterest lagged Before the year was half done I had
made up my mxnd that thus would be my first and last
year of teachmg' Yes I sand as much to Mr Grbbons
our School Commxssxoner when he was vrsntmg my
school one day He advlsed that I get Into a larger
Teacher and Pupils In Front of Hughes School
For several years I taught rn rural schools whlch
usually had all erght grades In 1919 I came to K M H S
and taught hrst second thlrd and fourth grades untxl
the hrst sn grades were moved to the Old Arsenal after
the dxstrxct w as centralized Wlmen the Arsenal burned
I moved to the Methodrst Church wrth 51 puplls m
three grades Because the room at tne church was not
large enough to accommodate so many another teacher
was lured for thxrd and fourth grades I contmued to
teach the first and second grades here unt1l we moved
mto the annex th1s fall

What a pleasure rt has been this year to teach
rn a modern well equrpped room' We find the mov
able tables and chairs make the room more cheerful and
home lrke besrdes allowrng the children greater freedom
The room rs well lighted even on dark days The chll
dren are pleased to see therr work on display on the
large bulletin hoard which rs constantly rn use They
also enjoy the easels where they can express therr Ideas
n drawrng and parntmg
Each mornmg now we enter a room that rs swept
dusted and rn perfect order thanks to the janrtors What
a contrast between the tiled floors cleaned and waxed
and those rough wooden floors that no amount of elbow
grease or wrshful thrnkrng could keep clean I can still
see those wrde cracks filled wlth dust and drrt'
How wonderful to have a heatrng system that keeps
the room at an even temperature' Well do I recall the
struggles I had keepmg that wood hte The room would
be erther too warm or so cold we would huddle shrver
rng about the stove
Durrng the cold weather rt was next to lmpossrble
to keep the room well ventrlated Only by openrng a
door or rarsrng a wrndow could thrs be accomplrshed
and durrng cold weather thrs method was not practrcal
Today we can get plenty of fresh arr srmply by turn
mg a lever on the unrvent
Today a prnt srzed srnk for lrttle people ID one
corner of the room wrth a paper tow el dispenser over rt
rs most convenrent for washrng therr hands just out
srde the door IS a drrnkmg fountarn What a change
from the unsamtary conditions when each chrld drank
from a drpper Yeste day we lugged water by parls
heated rt on the stove and several washed from the one
basrn of water Yesterday we all gathered round to
drrnk from the same drpper and greatly rncreased our
chances of catchrng the other students germs
Pupxls En oy Cafeteria
One thrng I have noticed rn partrcular this year rs
the fact that the chrldren arc not so trred and lrstless
durrng the afternoon I feel sure this rs due to therr
havrng hot lunches at the cafeterra at noon I also find
that these hot lunches grve me more pep and energy
for my afternoon s work
Yes rts been a long way and not always an easy way
from that day w hen I w as frrst thrrlled by the appear
ance of a letter from home Yet as I look back I can
only say :ts been a good way

the Arsenal the village the Northland to seek fortune
or farlure rn the great busy world Seymour had become
a merchant prrnce the other a traveler rn many lands
During all these years occasronal letters had passed be
tw een them but never had they met face to face untrl
the summer of 1911 when the traveler found hrmself
rn the palatral country home of the merchant prrnce
After the first greetrngs that veneer whrch success some
mist before the mornrng sun and these frrends were boys

long ago Seymour sand Let us go back to the old tow n
and have a look once mor at the fields the hrlls the
rivers the roads that must strll he there
On a july day when the red clover bedecks the
fields of the Northland and the note of the song sparrow
fills the meadows and the pastures these frlends found
themselxes rn the automobile of the merchant prrnce on
the borderland of St Lawrence County
Famrlrar scenes brrngrng back agarn the shadowy
forms of the long ago melt the heart and touch the
nmagrnatron with generous rmpluse Seymour sard I
wish I could do somethrng for Russell that would really
be of servrce to the people
The follow mg morn ng found the two friends ln
the company of a little group of the Cltrzens of the tow n
wendlng therr way to the srte of the Old Arsenal The
grave old burldrng that had defied the storm and stress
ot nore than a century stood rn solrtary grandeur on
the crest of the hull overlooking the vrllage From this
elevated spot the hulls the brooks the fields unchanged
by the years w ere rn solemn contrast to the fate of the
companrons of thrrty years ago faces vorces person
alrtnes that had endeared every nook of the landscape to
the hearts of th returning w and rers

SENIOR PROPHECY lContl
of thrs class arrrvrng7 There s Harold Bullock gorng ap
to the room clerk s desk You know Harold rnyented a
new rnsectrcrde to keep flres off from cows Frrst h
pours alcohol on the cows Then he sprrnkles gravel on
them When the flres become rntoxrcated they throw
gravel at each other
There comes Margaret Krng Drdnt she do well
to make thrs reunron9 sard my classmate Why? I
asked Well she got marrred and put her nurse s trarn
rng to good use She now has four sets of trrplets th
w orld s record
Remember Malcolm Hrll7 He rs rust comrng rn the
entrance at the left Do you recall how Malcolm hated
bookkeeprng but when Uncle Sam grabbed hrm hc
made an excellent bookkeeper for the army He once
remarked to someone that rt was lots easrer than rt was
at Knox because rt doesn t matter to anyone rf the books
don t balance
Our attenron was next centered rn front of the
magazrne counter for there was Esther Prlbeam lookrnf
over the new est rssues We assumed that Esther would
also attend the Lrbrarran s Conventron whrle rn Syracuse
It was nrce for us to thrnk that Esther for several years
had been the very efficrent lrbrarran at Knox Memorral
jrm Smrth as we mrght have eypected qurckly
spotted the Coffee Shop as he entered and made hrs
acquarntance wrth two or three wartresses We well re
called thrs achrevement rn jrm s past years how he could
so readrly obtarn the grrls attentron Botherrng folks w as
always an rnterestrng hobby for jrm He hasnt chang
ed I remarked because he rs now a Collector of In
ternal Revenue and as such rs certarnly a pest to every
Vrvran Fulton now berng escorted to her room
hasnt changed much has shf-9' I asked No was thc
reply and drd you know that Vryran desrgned a new
drawstrrng bathrng surt9 I am rnformed that she rn
tends to wear rt rn the All Amerrcan Beauty Contest
I hope shes wrns
Trme w as raprdly passrng and as the later after
noon came PFC Heman Matthew s rushed mto the lobby
A newspaper account some months ago had gryen m
the news that Heman had jorncd the paratroopers and
obtarned a patent on a parachute w hrch wrll take hrm
back to the plane after he starts down Thats rn case
he doesn t lrke appearances below Heman we recalled
frequently changed hrs mrnd
We w ere also surprrsed and I:-leased to note arrrv
rng perhaps the quretest member of therr class Vrvrar
Blackmer who had also made a great sacrrfrce to come
to the reunron from the mrcl west Vrvran has spent
much of her trme rn solrtrtude wrth a talented black cat
on a yacht on the Mrssrssrppr
Now rt was nearrng the hour for the reunron to
start and the rest of our schoolmates were rushrng rn to
take up therr reseryatrons More rn Uncle Sam s unrforms
were nevt seen There was that handsome Senror of ten
years ago Gene Whrteford wearrng the smart unrform
of the U S Marrnes Wle had heard that Gene rs a fam
ous prlot rn the off trmes when he rsnt on K P or wrth
hrs w rfe w ho was a member of the class of 53
Eva Chase rs also a prlot rn the Arr Force For years
she has featured rn many transcontrnental Hrghts wrth
her attentron keenly focused on all of the good lookrng
prlots Eva appears to us as trrm as ever as she hurrres
to the elevator Joyce Rrder rs accompanyrng her We
now recall how Joyce always had an eye for the sarlors
She lrves wrth her sarlor husband at a naval base and
teaches a course to young brrdes on How to Make .1
Husband Out of a Sarlor
Barbara Colton and Anna Kelly are the last of th
class to arrrve When I notrced Barbara I remarked that
she rs telephone operator rn a New England sanrtorrum
and I wondered rf calls from men especrally could ever
get through rn that localrty because Barbara always be
lreved rn gettrng acquarnted wrth callers Y s rt rs
true our conversatron contrnued that Anna Kelly
marrred a mrllronarre and spends most of her trme
spendrng hrs money The rest of the trme she dances for
the fun of rt Do you suppose she wrll grve us an ex
hrbrtron dance tonrght7
But trme w as flyrng and we strll had to dress for the
banquet At thrs pornt we were sure that we could look
ahead to an enyoyable evenrng wrth the class of 52
Already rdeas were buzzrng rn our heads about how we
mrght handle our newspaper assrgnment of coverrng thc
banquet We were sure that rt would be a successful
new S story

Senior Band looks back on Band Day at Gouverneur Fair, pep rallies, basketball games,
Potsdam trips for All-State Band, Halloween and Christmas programs and an appearance
at Appleton Arena, St. Lawrence University, with the comment, "We've had a good year."
The twenty-nine members are under the direction of Mr. Morse.
During our last summer vacation, we played on Band Day at the Gouverneur Fair. Here
we received :1 blue ribbon and twenty-tive dollars for our performance.
Our band has played an active part in pep rallies and basketball games. We have played
at the majority of the home games and we feel that it added to the school spirit.
janet Xviese, Sarah Briggs, and Vivian White went to Potsdam to participate in the All-
State Band. They stayed overnight in the Northside Dorm and were entertained at a dance
one night after practice.
On Halloween, the band and majorettes marched at DeGrasse. We led the elementary
grades in a costume parade.
At Christmas time, we played several numbers for the assembly program to which our
parents and friends were invited.
ln the future, the members of the band hope to participate in several other activities. At
present, we are planning to have zi spring concert and play at the Dedication in May.

The ,lunior Band composed of
25 members was organized this
year under the direction of Nlr.
joseph Nlorse. This was the first
time that the young students of
this group had taken lessons on
instruments. Practices were held
on Monday, Vkednesday and Fri-
day at 12:20 in the Shop with
some of the Senior Band mem-
Senior band members recog-
nize the progress of junior band
members who are now playing
selections from the "Top Flight"
lVhat adds a touch of the dra-
matic to our band concerts, pep
rallies and Memorial Day
rade? XYhy the twirlers, of
course. VVith three Senior
-iorettes, Vivian Fulton fDrum
Klajorettel, Shirley Hewlett and
a new member, Pearl Hutt, they
plan to march and twirl at the
Spring Concert and Dedication.
'lihey have greatly missed Shir-
ley while she was ill.
lfight juniors twirlers are busy
learning the art, and hope to add
new routines as well as perfect
our old ones.
Each week finds members of
beginners' tap class, under Nlr.
Kings direction, practicing their
routines. This class arouses much
interest and we are looking for-
ward to a fine production, when
they master the intricate steps.
