VOLUME SIXTEEN of the
According to the legend, when the (Ire.at Spirit blessed the Iroquois, he left the imprint of his hand and long tapering fingers in the soil from which the six lakes sprang, and thus gave us our Finger Lakes. Hut the lakes took their names from the Indians who thus have left the indelible impress of their people on central New York. In fact counties, towns, and rivers with their musical names remind us that not a foot of our community lacks a story connected with those earlier residents of this locality. Sites of thirteen Indian villages dot the shores of our own Lake Cayuga, while only forty miles away we find the headquarters of the Six Nations south of Syracuse. This is truly a land rich in the color and romance of Indian lore.
For instance, as we look around us at our beautiful lake country, it is difficult to realize that in 1779, only one hundred and sixty-two years ago, this section between what is known as Cayuga Lake State Park and the Inlet at Geneva was the site of the important military encampment of one-third of the American army of that day. You know the story of the Sullivan-Indian expedition of that time, perhaps. If you do, you realize that by a series of treaties this land was acquired from the Indians though they reserved for a time territory a mile square around what is now Canoga. There today on a wooded slope up from the Cayuga Lake Boulevard we see the monument pictured on the opposite page, which marks the approximate birthplace of Red Jacket, wily orator and chieftain of the Senecas. This Canoga land the Indians also lost, but it is known to students of Indian history that they dearly loved Seneca County and have never given up the hope of buying land here, where they may settle and live on soil their forefathers once owned.
All of this may seem a far cry from the story of the year in a modern high school, but is it? In an environment such as this, we find the new order. The Indians had their tribes, activities, sports; we have our classes, activities, and sports. Sometimes as the shouts of our cheering section go up to shake the autumn sky, perhaps the spirits of those earlier braves listen in silent awe to this newer version of war cry. as our warriors go out for the scalps of their football foes. Yes, ours is a story book land, and we must not forget to pay tribute to those earlier Central New Yorkers who loved and lost this land.WE HONOR
Miss Mary Miller

CLASSES ATHLETICSTHE BOARD OF EDUCATION
We students of Mynderse Academy are grateful to our Board of Kducation for its efficient and beneficial service to the taxpayers of Seneca Falls. The educational opportunities of our village have been augmented this year by the much needed Industrial Arts Department. Now the training of students can be truly many sided. Since September. many assembly programs of an entertaining and educational character have been provided for the students, which have been thoroughly enjoyed. For these reasons, the Class of Nineteen Forty-one goes out from Mynderse Academy with kindly remembrances of the services of the Board to them and to the community.

Remember four years ago? Eugene Gustafson was our president. Everyone looked down upon us and called us "kids." Rut we showed ’em when our hillbilly skit won the prize at the Junior Party. Then we proved that it wasn’t an accident by writing most of the Glee Club Operetta and capturing the leading roles. We also made history when our boys’ intramural basketball team walked away with the championship. Of course, we far outshone the sophs at the Frosh-Soph Picnic and closed the year with the feeling that we were definitely “somebodies.”
We intrusted the leadership of our sophomore year to Roland Lind. We had lost some of our cockiness; and although our boys retained the basketball championship and our warblers were again operetta stars, do you remember how quiet the year was? In fact, it wasn't until the Frosh-Soph Picnic that we regained all of our old boisterousness and went forth to repeat our success of the preceding year.
Didn’t things start with a whirl junior year? We had no sooner elected Harold Hart ran, Xorma Gustafson, Janice Olinstead, and Roland Lind class officers than the Junior Party was upon us. All the classes co-operated by putting on skits to carry out the Gay Nineties theme.
Will you ever forget our Junior Play. “What a Life.” with Rill Rrignall as Henry Aldrich and Dick Trumble as the detective who solved the case of the missing band instruments? We brought down the house by just being natural.
Then came the Junior-Senior Party with its "Kookoo Kollege." The gym shook with the jitterbugging of students once considered the quietest in Mynderse.
Late in May, Harold Bartran, Roland Lind, and Stephen Kelleher were chosen to attend Empire Roys’ State in Syracuse. In June, Harold Bartran and Anthony Sinicropi were selected to serve as Junior Rotarians for terms of six months each.
The highlight of the year was the Junior Prom. The theme was “An Old Dutch Garden;” and Norma Gustafson was crowned queen in a setting of tulips, storks, wooden shoes, and windmills.
The events of our senior year are not difficult to remember. We chose Anthony Sinicropi, Helen Marsella, Janice Olinstead, and Alex Lamanna to lead us through our last year in Mvnderse, and then turned our attention to the Senior Play. The group that had clowned its way through its first three years in school surprised Mvnderse with its seriousness in presenting a mystery-drama, “The Thirteenth Chair.” We had the audience practically on the stage in an effort to see “who done it.”
With December came the ball. Decorations were Christmas trees against a background of blue and silver. Queen Helen and King Roland reigned for the night.
Next, Alex Lamanna’s losing ticket team entertained Harold Bartran’s winners in a post-play pay-off at an informal evening party.
Now we are looking forward to the annual Junior-Senior Party and awaiting with a mingled feeling of joy anti sadness graduation when we will sever all ties with life in Mynderse and enter into a new existence.
Just to prove we could be decorous even with the temptations of an Indian theme, we give you this annual, the 1941 Myndersian, as a remembrance of our last year in Mynderse.
For what success we have achieved in school our gratitude goes to our class advisers and especially to Miss O’Brien, who has given her patience, advice, and time in guiding our senior activities, preparing us for graduation, and extending her friendship to everyone of us.

23CLASS OF 1942
Mynderse Academy fairly shook on its foundations when the Class of '42 arrived with a mighty bound. These ninety-two industrious, fun loving students plunged directly into their year’s work of electing officers.
As freshmen, we were one hundred and thirty strong. Of this number, ninety-two are now full-fledged juniors. Of the thirty-eight unaccounted for, eleven have moved away, twenty have simply left school, and six have dropped behind.
The untimely death this winter of Clementine Santinello, a popular girl of our class, was indeed a blow to the class. Although "Dine" was quiet, she was a hard worker and a staunch friend; and we miss her.
As everyone seemed to have recovered from the strain of returning to their books by November, we sprang the Junior Party on them. The theme was “School Days,” with Hob Lawson acting as the “school master” of the skit which was presented. Representatives were chosen from each class to play the leading roles.
School seems to play an important part in the lives and thoughts of the Class of '1-2; for the Junior Play, "Remember the Day,” was a story of a young school boy, his teachers, and his comrades. The leading roles were ably protrayed by Louis Esposito, Marion Spencer, Bill Gargan, and June Holland.
Mynderse may count itself fortunate in the number of juniors participating in the various activities and sports. Two of our outstanding varsity men are Gene Platten and Bob Lawson. The Class of ’42 is well represented in practically every activity in school. Many of us hold important offices in these activities.
The two most cherished privileges of the junior class we have yet to fulfill this year. Two of our boys, as Junior Rotarians, will be allowed the privileges of Rotary Club members next year and will attend their meetings for a half year each. We also must choose three boys to attend Boys’ State for a week this summer. The fortunate boys may be proud that they possesss the admirable characteristics that enable them to be chosen for these two honorary activities.
We must not forget to mention our fete to our predecessors, the seniors, in the form of the Junior-Senior party in the spring. This informal party is an annual gesture to show our affection for and appreciation of the seniors.
And, last but not least, we shall conclude this happy and fruitful year with the Junior Prom. Plans are under way to make this one of the most gala, memorable formal dances ever held at Mynderse. We are sure that our Prom Queen will be a true representative of Mynderse beauty and talent.
We especially wish to pay tribute to Mrs. Jenkins, Miss Palumbo, and Mr. Becker, our class advisers this year. They have put much time and effort into making our junior year in high school a happy memory.

An older and possibly wiser group of students returned to Mynderse Academy last fall to form the class that “knows nothing but thinks it knows it all,” the sophomore class.
As soon as our advisers could round us up for a meeting, we elected the leaders mentioned above. We had no sooner begun to breathe sighs of complacency over our good work, than we were caught up in the torrent of activity connected with the Junior Party. Several members of our class participated in “School Days,” a sketch presented during the evening. Most of them looked very natural, especially those wearing dunce caps.
Exams produced a temporary lull, after which we took part in the second annual Frosh-Soph play tournament, sponsored by the Wig and Rouge.
We continued the custom established by last year’s enterprising class by holding a second even bigger and better Sophomore Hop. On April twenty-fifth, the students gathered for a hilarious evening of games, dancing, and that all-important item, food. Under the able sponsorship of our faculty advisers, Miss Miller, Miss Wickes, Mr. Rockwell, and Mr. Hoppe, and the class officers, we feel that our undertaking was very successful.
The last and perhaps most important activity on the year's calendar was of course our annual Frosh-Soph picnic at which the hardier members of our bomb-proof stomached class challenged each other to see who could eat the most weiners and rolls and drink the most lemonade. (After personal observation, we feel safe in saying that this doubtful honor belongs to our walking dictionary, George Miller.)
Rut our sophomore year was not composed merely of social interests. Representatives of our class may be found in nearly every activity the school offers. In every activity we have entered, we have endeavored to do our part. Several members of our class participated in the yearly operetta, not only in the chorus, but also in some of the leading roles. Those interested in athletics took part in the various intramurals throughout the year. The language clubs are being bolstered from our numbers. The band and orchestra contain a large number of our more musical sophomores. The other clubs have also been augmented by sophomores.
Our sophomore year is now coming to a close. Next fall when we return, we will belong to the ranks of the upper classmen. Then we will put on a “know-it-all” air and look down our noses upon the audacious little freshmen and the pompous sophomores. Then we’ll say to each other, with a patronizing air, “Goodness, I’m glad I never was as awful a squirt as they are,” while deep down in our hearts we will know that we behaved just as badly, if not worse. And did we enjoy it!

Following through with the larger paper, the 1940-41 Microphone, under the leadership of Harold Bart ran and Alys Jones, succeeded in reaching a larger percentage of the students than ever before. Stressing the type of content of the paper and the addition of several new features resulted in the raising of the standards of the Microphone. As a crowning achievement of much hard work, the Microphone was awarded a Superior rating at the Empire State School Press Association Conference held in Syracuse in November.
Special mention should be given to Miss Compitello, the publication adviser. Thirteen years’ supervision of the paper has not dulled her enthusiasm. She takes pleasure in working with the staff in this worth-while activity, interested in presenting to the outside world, a picture of Mynderse life.

Miss Jean George Director of Dramatics
As our first official activity of the year, the members of the Wig and Rouge sold hot dogs and pop at the home football games. The enterprise was very successful—the receipts for one sale being the price of 18 pounds of hot dogs and one burned finger.
At an early meeting we elected our officers. Norma Gustafson was chosen president; Thomas Keach, vice-president; Barbara Knox, secretary, and Betty Masten, treasurer.
With Frank Zona's good acting and Betty Masten’s outstanding knowledge in art displayed in the realistic scenic effects, we presented a very inspiring Christinas assembly program.
On January 80, we sponsored the annual prize speaking contest and in April, the Freshman-Sophomore Flay Tournament.
Our meetings were devoted to the study of make-up and stage craft under the supervision of Miss George, the club’s adviser.

During the past year, various members of the Aeanthus Club have entered soap statuettes, clothing designs, wallpaper designs, and posters in several different national art contests. The most important eontest was that of the American Magazine Youth Forum. In posters, the members of the club worked out the theme, "What my community contributes to the nation." The main object in entering these contests has not been to win but to broaden the outlook and scope of the club through the research and study such participation necessitates.
In these projects the club has been led by Mrs. Steigervvald, adviser, and Rose Delia, president; Duane Marks, vice-president; Violet Grahling, secretary; and Georgina Fornesi, treasurer.
Early in the fall and spring new members were initiated.
Plans are now being made for the annual May Dance. Club activities will be brought to a close by a banquet in June.

In February, eight pupils who showed excellence in Italian I were initiated into the organization at a party held in the gymnasium, where a supper and games were enjoyed by all.
On May 2, II Circolo Italiano presented its annual “Serata,” consisting of two one-act plays and musical numbers by various members of the club.
Since the purpose of the club is to foster an appreciation of Italian language and culture, the club’s programs were planned with this purpose in mind. The members enjoyed a “Beat the Band" program based on Italian songs, an “Information Please” program on Italian culture, Italian bingo, and one-act plays.
A picnic at Cayuga Lake will climax the year's activities.

LE CERCLE FRANCAIS
With Mrs. Jenkins as club adviser and Sheldon Miller as Premier, Le Cerele Francais began its year’s activities under a revised constitution. Ten new members were added to the club bringing the total membership to sixteen.
The first event of the year was a dinner given by the new members for the old ones. After a typically French dinner, a scavanger hunt was held.
Early in the spring the club entertained Ge-neva’s French Club in an attempt to become better acquainted with an outside organization.
The main feature of the club’s biweekly meetings has been an observance of French holidays, the most important of which are Saint Charlemagne’s Day, the French national holiday, July fourteenth, and le jour de Jeanne d’Arc.
The climax of the year’s events will be a bicycle picnic held May twentieth, the day on which the French bicycle races are usually held.

Inder the direction of Mr. Marble, and Sheila Mann, president; Dorothy Mackey, vice-presi-dent; Marion Guthrie, secretary; and Edward Deal, treasurer, the members of the Radio Club have undertaken a variety of projects. The old members have been trying to increase the receiving capacity of their radio sets, while some of the new members have been busy building their first sets. Others have been brushing up on their code. All the members have co-operated in selling candy at the games to help pay for new equipment.
The club has been particularly fortunate this year in receiving donations of several old electric radios from outside peopie interested in its progress. The parts from these radios have been valuable to the members in making and improving their sets.
('lub activities for the year will he brought to a close by a picnic held some time in June.

The yearbook staff presents its sixteenth edition, the work of a group of twenty-six, headed by Marjorie Riel, editor-in-chief, and Stephen Kelleher, business manager. These seniors, chosen for their talents and initiative, have worked under Miss Julia O’Brien, who has developed the Mynders-ians from their modest beginnings to All-American status over a period of years. We are grateful to her for that unfailing enthusiasm, patience, and inspiration which builds our annuals. It is our hope that this record of 1940-1041 in Mynderse Academy will give outsiders a wider understanding of the multiple phases of our activities and bring permanent pleasure to our Myndersians through its pictures, stories, and records of this busy school year.

Last spring many Mynderse girls were attracted to the ever-popular sport, softball. As a result several teams were organized, and a series of competitive games followed. The winning team was captained by June Moil.
Soon after school began last autumn, soccer enthusiasts were organized into several teams chosen by Miss Huyck. In all the games the competition was strong, but the team captained by Marian Spencer emerged victorious.

In addition to the regular program of varsity athletics, Mynderse Academy maintains a widely varied intramural schedule where competition is as keen as in varsity sports.
In the spring a young man’s fancy turns to—softball.
Last spring found Hill Lawler’s seniors victorious over the juniors in the finals. In September, Johnny Hartman led his soccer team through an elimination tournament to the championship.

One of the youngest and yet one of the most active of Mynderse’s activities, the Block M Club, celebrated its fourth birthday this year. Under the supervision of Mr. Wormuth the club has grown in the esteem of the students and faculty. The purpose of the club is to promote better sportsmanship at Mynderse, both on and off the athletic fields. Officers for the 1940-41 year were Eddie Zona, president; Geno Giovaninni, vice-president; Gene Flatten, secretary; and Joe Carissimi, treasurer.
Highlight of the club’s year will be the awarding of the Block M sweater at the award assembly in June. Each year the club awards this sweater to the boy who has shown the best sportsmanship in all inter and intra school activities. I ast year’s winner was John Moreland.
The club will conclude its activities for the year with its annual banquet to be held in June.
