Congratulations to the Seniors of 1945.
Your record in scholastic and extracurricu-
lar activities have been outstanding. The
theme for this year's Mynderrian, shows
that you are thinking clearly of the re-
sponsibilities you are about to assume as
citizens of the United States and of the
world. If we are to have peace during the
coming years, some sort of international
organization must be formed that will
work. There must be a system for world
co-operation in all spheres of life. We must
realize that our own domestic policies
affect peoples of other countries, and must
cultivate the practice of consultation on
international and social problems. Only
through knowing the backgrounds and
aims of other people can this be accom-
FRANK W. VOGEL
We on the Home Front, temporarily or
permanently, have a definite responsibility
to help win the peace in a way that hasn't
been stressed so much of late, it has even
been de-emphasized and spoken of as over-
optimism. It calls for close co-operation
with our Allies, the Big Four.
The only chance for the Axis now is
through negotiated peace, to split, not our
Armies, but our home front, through public
opinion or the lack of it.
Let's jettison fuzzy thinking, and be
prepared to win the peace by being realistic
-straight thinking-not sloppily senti-
mental, or antagonistic to our Allies, but
forthright partners to do a complete job.

Our class officers are the envy of every other class in Mynderse Academy. They, with Miss Julia
O'Brien, Senior Class Adviser, have led us along "Senior Street" with amazing skill.
Our class president, Charles Campbell, should feel the satisfaction of a job really Well done. He
kept our class meetings in order, and that's not easy when you have a group to deal With as peppy as
the Cpresent sniors. Chuck has Worked hard on class activities and seems possessed of the gift o finding
kin red spirits to follow his example. If We don't miss our guess,he Will one day be a leader in industry.
Competent Anna Ludovico served as vice-president and stood ready to pinch hit for Chuck if he
We picked Betty Cross to be our secretary, because she can keep notes well, and what is more im-
portant, read them back a month later. Too, she gives her ovvn individual touch to the performance,
so that we used to look forward to that phase of the meeting.
The man in charge of our finances was tall Jim Jarrett. After he got our money, he kept it out of
our reach lest we should change our minds about paying up. Conlidentially we nominate him for the
Federal Tax Office, he has such a gift for getting your next-to-the-last cent.
So now ou see Why we traveled along Senior Way so confidently. With Miss O'Brien, Chuck, Anna,
Betty, anclijim to lead us, how could we miss?

From the ranks of the Senior Class, several illustrious members were aptly chosen to emote before the footlights
of Mynderse Academy in the Senior Play, "The Bargain Bride." Under the able supervision of Miss Margaret
Allen, the talents of our Thespians were developed with the result that we vvill always remember our blushing
red-haired goddess "Scotch," and our roving Lothario Wayne, Who, with the rest of the cast made our play a
memorable occasion, tuned to the rollicking antics of the players and the echoing laughter and enjoyment of
Mynderse Went all out for the mystery-thriller, "Ghost Wanted," which the Junior Class presented. Laurels
went to Tommy Baker and Jimmy Fegley, playing Hugo Bromley and Jeff Hall.
From the time our tvvo heroes applied for the job of haunting an island mansion, the plot moved swiftly, intro-
ducing Hne comedy, a fevv 'izombiesf' and Brin Kissell as the monster. Romance entered when the tvvo boys savv
Rita Capparelli and Joyce Scattaglia.
The play was a success, thanks to the fine work of the cast, the committees, Miss Allen's excellent coaching and
Norma Cline's last minute substitution.

Serious minded and grim faced, we the junior Class, with our heads packed full of book learning,
look back with delight on the eventful year we have left behind us. .
The beat of the orchestra drummer at our Junior Party was barely distinguishable above the clatter
of numerous pairs of knees knocking and teeth chattering-after effects of our Spider-webbed Staircase
and Chamber-of-horrors that were in keeping with our theme "The Haunted House."
Turning for a moment from the air of mystery prevailing at the party, we featured a fashion parade
of today and yesterday. Every costume was shown from bathing suits to formals. Tom Baker, who is
a really good sport, made his appearance in daring red flannels, straw hat, and a bushy raccoon coat.
At the conclusion of the parade I think the majority of us were convinced that though odd, the fashions
of today are "tops."
One of our spectacular achievements was an amateur show put on as an assembly program. Did
we ever dig up hidden talent, and to this day we're sorry some of it was ever uncovered! We are glad
that the students of Mynderse can still gaze upon Seneca Falls with an air of pride after our rendition
of its discovery. But we brought down the curtain in hilarity as we had as our finale a group of boys
garbed as girls in a song and dance. What grace those fellows possessed, namely Jim Fegley and
Finding terrorizing the students of Mynderse such great fun, we decided to have another fling at it,
therefore, we chose as our Junior Play "Ghost Wanted." This starred such well-known juniors as
Rita Capparellihloyce Scattaglia,Jim Fegley, and Tom Baker, to mention only a few. And it seems to
be agreed upon that Alice Sullivan did a wonderful portrayal of the woman of mystery, Madame Zolga.
CLASS OF 1946...
Here may we compliment the make-up committee on their horrifying masterpiece, the monster.
Mystery must be in demand in Mynderse, for we considered our play a success.
Days and months rolled by, days of worry and sorrow, joy and hilarity. We loved every one of
them. Then came the Junior-Senior Party when we gave those grave old seniors an evening of super
fun that we'll never forget and hope they won't as they file out into the cold world.
It is our ho e that this ear we will ut forth one of the bi est and best unior Proms held in
. Y . gg . . .
Mynderse, and if the class members respond to this as they have to our other activities I can say for
sure that it will be a success.
Our class was evenly distributed among the various activities of the school. Such organizations as
the Band and Orchestra, Wig and Rouge, language clubs, and athletic organizations found among
their ranks members of the Junior Class.
Perhaps our year wouldn't have been quite so successful if we hadn't had such well-chosen class
officers as Brin Kissel presiding as nresident, never tardy at class meetings but always in school,
assisted by capable Alice Casey, vice-president, Barbara Potter, secretary, and last but very important,
Roland Gustafson, treasurer, who was elected because of his charming personality.
Much credit is due also to our splendid class advisers, Mrs. Oliver, Miss Spencer, and Mr. Becker,
who guided us so ably.
Soon we shall abandon our life as gay, young juniors, and fill the seat of the seniors. Let's hope we
can make as good a showing as did the previous class, before we begin our work in a world new to us.

"I-Ieyf We're Sophs !" This was hard to realize as We started the second round of the battle facing us,
as a class, at Mynderse. Although in the first round we had contracted some scars of battle, the success
we enjoyed healed them quickly. So it was in the second round, too, though the hardships increased
and the good times became more sparse.
To represent us in the punching line we elected as president, likeable Joe Poole. His able assistants
in executive powers were Norma "Chips" Smallwood, in the role of vice-president, Ladonna Lindsey,
a willing secretary, and Jimmy Rogers was custodian of our funds.
We had as our able advisers, Miss Bruton, who offered us no end of excellent counsel and advice,
Mrs. Shannon, who tried to show us the way, Miss Miller, who proves every day that Latin cannot
be forgotten, and last but not least our own Mr. C. A. P. Davies. Many thanks to them for making
this round a successful one.
We made many valuable additions to our class in the form of Helen Widger, whose father is at
Sampson, Berta Ostberg, Ruth lXfIcGhan, and Betty Burgess. However, we also suffered losses when
Doris Clayton moved to Gorham and when George Bastian enlisted.
Round two started more seriously for us, and the responsibilities outweighed our thoughts of
pleasure as a class, so relaxation did not come until the hands of the timekeeper's clock neared the
zero hour. But as individuals, many of our boys showed superfluous skill in varsity sports as well as
in intramurals. Meanwhile the Soph girls carried away top honors in soccer. With Betty Burgess
directing the blows they put up a hard fight in girls' intramurals basketball and concluded the season
in second place.

Again we made a "bang up" showing in extracurricular activities offered at Mynderse. Sophs fought
their way into Band, Orchestra, Senior Choir, Science Club, Wig and Rouge, Library Club, and
Of course the spotlight eventually turns to our fine slugging in the war effort. Through our repre-
sentatives on the Mynderse Junior Red Cross Council we joined the rest of the school in its 1001,
membership. We bought our share of War Bonds and Stamps, striving always to keep the Minute Man
Flag flying over the halls of Mynderse! Some of our number made scrapbooks for servicemen, while
others folded vast amounts of newspaper bedside bags.
After the struggle of Mid-Years our aspirations turned to the annual Soph Hop. Our theme was
the "Soph Mardi Gras." Side shows such as the famous Madam, the fortune teller, preceded the gala
parade of our own much publicized caricatures. Clowns, a bearded lady, the fat lady, and the renowned
Flora Dora Sextet offered utmost amusement to those in the ringside seats.
By slugging away our representatives produced an undeniably superb masterpiece for us in the
annual Wig and Rouge Play Tournament. Our contribution was L'The Ghostly Passenger" and our
sincere thanks go to Miss Allen and her assistants who trained us to the ninth degree.
Closing round two in collaboration with the Freshmen we held the Frosh-Soph Picnic. Exhausting
good times that only a picnic can provide made this conclusion one to be remembered.
With the concluding gong, we marched out wearily from our role as Sophomores into that of
"Jolly Juniors. "

On that eventful autumn day when we assembled in the auditorium, there was a grand total of
one hundred and seventeen freshmen. We started our year off with a bang by electing that small but
powerful Lee Letizia as president. The other class officers were Dorothy Struble, vice-president, who
always has a smile for everyone, Doris Dark, secretary, who did a good job keeping up the minutes
and Mark "pa-leese pay your dues" Sinicropi, treasurer.
Because there were many strangers in our midst we decided to have a Freshmen Get-together Party.
This was our first occasion of the year and one not to be forgotten. Dancing, entertainment, and, of
course, refreshments all united to make the party a great success.
But now the fun was over, at least for a while. We all settled down to school work and went
out for various activities. We proved to the upper classmen that the freshmen weren't so pea-green
by displaying our various abilities in Wig and Rouge, Library Club, Microphone, Band, Tumbling
Clubs, A Cappella Choir, basketball, football, and baseball. Homerooms 78 and 79 maintained the
honors in 10075 War Stamp Sales and banking. Volunteers were always available to do Red Cross
work and other war projects.
At last time had come, and deadly silence fell over the one hundred and seventeen freshmen.
Everyone seemed to appear more studious, books were carried home at night, and no longer were spit-
wads thrown during classes. What was it? What had happened to the invincible freshmen? Ah yes,
Midyears. Dear, sweet Midyears! We tackled the examinations bravely, however, and after a hard
struggle came out on top. When at last they had been safely passed, the dark cloud of gloom rose from
around us as quickly as it had come.
It wasn't long before spring arrived and with it . . . yes, you guessed it, spring fever. I'll have to
admit that it hit the girls harder than the boys this year. In Latin class we dreamed not of Julius
Caesar but of that boy that sits in the last seat in English, we thought of Frank Sinatra for Bing
CrosbyD instead of Robert Louis Stevenson, and in Science we just sat there utterly fascinated by Mr.
Parkin's dazzling ties. In April the Wig and Rouge sponsored a Sadie Hawkin's Dance, and the fresh-
men girls certainly did rise and shine. Each pursued her man and succeeded in dragging him to the
dance. lt must be those gals had heard of the man-power shortage.
April also brought the Frosh-Soph tournament and hope in the hearts of the freshman class. We
were a dauntless bunch and the sophomores could say nothing to discourage us. New talent blossomed
forth and comedians and tragedians were unearthed.
The annual Freshman Dance came about this time, and the freshmen really outdid themselves.
Decorations, entertainment, and last but far from least, refreshments, made the dance a hit and one
for Mynderse to remember.
The year was drawing to a close but not before the Frosh-Soph picnic was held. There were the
usual hot-dogs and lemonade, and of course wherever there's food, there's fun. This was an especially
gala affair because we were marking the end of a memorable school year. Before we can draw the cur-
tains on the Freshman Class, however, We all want to bestow our thanks and appreciation on our
class advisers. They have been kind and understanding and willingly gave their time and help to make
our class a successful one. Mrs. Seld, Miss Allen, Miss Block, and Mr. Parkin all receive a full vote of
thanks from the Class of '48.

SEVENTH GRADE . .
Mynderse Academy is a new school to most of the seventh grade students, and we decided that
electing class officers would help us in working into Mynderse ways. Our president, by appointing
committees to attend to the class business, would prepare us for high school classes. Our onicers are
president, James Carpentergsecretaty,Clara Anne Batty, and treasurer, Winifred Colgove. These omcers
and committees have made the work very simple for pupils and teachers.
The seventh graders, among the many things we have to be thankful for, can be especially proud of
our nice teachers, special teachers, and our principal. They have been wonderful and have always
been glad to help us in any way. We have found that Mynderse Academy is a very nice place in which
to get an education. We have also enjoyed the good books in the library and the othersources of pleasure
that the school offers.
During the year pupils participated in school projects. The program, "Peace Through Brotherhood,"
was one of these. The Junior Choir members took part in the "Christmas Carol Sing." The seventh
grade Junior Choir put on a minstrel show for entertainment before Easter. The girls furnished the
music, while seven boys did the acting. V
The day is rapidly drawing nearer the time when we will leave our 'lGlorious Myndersen for a
summer vacation, but we will be longing for the day when we can come back as eighth graders.

MYNDE RS IAN
The Myndersian is headed by Ruth Hol-
comb, Editor-in-Chief, Wally Weart, Busi-
ness Managerg Mary Elizabeth Finn and
Barbara Huson, Photographic Editors, and
Aileen Poole, Head Typist. Miss O'Brien,
as usual, is adviser.
Centering around a theme of world co-
operation and international brotherhood,
this Mynderfizzn, produced by a staff of 29
Seniors, is presented to you in order that I HHSOH, P0016 ,

there will be a tangible reminder of the Holcomb Weart
1944-45 year at Mynderse.
Since the opening of school, months before our staff was organized, Miss O'Brien had Mr. Sutterby
covering events. That accounts for the almost complete photographic coverage of the year. Amateurs
among the seniors contributed some of their snaps, too. The Bullock Studio took the individuals of
the seniors and the class groups. We have included our young friends in the grades because they are
an important Wing of the Mynderse family, and soon will be a part of the entering high school classes
that are formed from these grade students, the graduates from St. Patricks, and rural pupils from out-
The staH of this 1945 Mymierrian wish to express their sincere gratitude to Miss O'Brien for her
experienced guidance of this the twentieth Mynderrian.

Under the capable leadership of Charles Campbell and Joan Cafaro and the guidance of Miss Compi-
tello the Microphone has completed another successful year.
In addition to their regular activities, the Microphone staff published a G. I. Issue, which contained
the names, location, and activities of all Mynderse graduates who were then serving their country.
This information was obtained by staff members through the service men's families. This issue was
distributed free to these families in order that it might be sent to the service men. Another wartime
feature of the Microphone has been sending issues to Mynderse servicemen stationed in the United States.
The Microphone has co-operated with the war effort in va.rious ways. It has published articles, and
stories which have been sent from the Treasury Department and reports on War Stamp Sales and
editorials on various phases of the war effort. By publishing twelve issues on inferior paper the Micro-
phone has done its bit to preserve paper during this wartime emergency.
Several new features have been introduced to the Microphone this year. These are biographies of
some of the students in Mynderse and questions based on present and past Mynderse students and
activities special column.
Without Miss Compitellds vigilance in keeping us to our deadlines the staff would many times
have been lost. We owe her a deep debt of gratitude, because without her help the bi-weekly publica-
tion of the Microphone would have been impossible.
Our wish for the new staff of the Microphone is "Good Luck and continue to publish a good paper."
Microphone activities will conclude with the annual banquet held at the Armitage in the spring.
The band, under the direction of Mr. Fraser, is still one of the most important activities in Mynderse.
Some difhculty was encountered in procuring musical instruments this year, and for that reason not
all the students who wanted to start band classes were able to do so. However, a reasonably good job
was done in acquiring second hand instruments from music stores and from people who were former
members of the band and orchestra. By the acquisition of these instruments, it was possible to start a
number of the students in the ward schools and the grades at Mynderse.
Two valuable band members went into the army just before the band concert. These were Wayne
Guy and Irwin Spieglman, but the younger players stepped in and did a iine job nevertheless. The
band is now showing the results of the advisability of starting large beginners' clasess, for the band
at present is composed to a great extent of people who started in pre-war and early war years.
It is hoped that an early resumption of the manufacture of musical instruments will once again
enable us to start larger beginning classes. This is all, of course, contingent on the progress of the war.
A band class that increased notably was the drum majorettes. The enrollment in this is the largest
in the history of the school. The class operates under the joint direction of the senior majorettes.
The band played at all the football games and, of course, the annual band concert, held March 15,
introduced many new and interesting numbers. The musical festival was held at Port Byron, May 12,
the entire band participated.

The orchestra, which is under the direction of Mr. Fraser, is continuing its policy of last year in
playing a lighter type of music. This seems to interest the students more than the classical composi-
tions and also provides more of an incentive for band members to play in the orchestra.
The orchestra has played for all the assemblies and has participated in both gym exhibitions 5 one
of them put on by Coach Rallis and the other sponsored by Miss Ruby Smith. It accompanied the
students while they were performing their various stunts.
From the encouragement received at school, a number of the boys formed a dance orchestra under
the leadership of Wayne Guy, which has played for numerous school dances and after basketball
games. It furnished music for the Recreation Center and several dances at St. Patrick's school. Among
the places Where the orchestra has played outside of Seneca Falls are Port Byron, Moravia, Clyde,
and of course, Waterloo.
Members of the orchestra include: three saxophonists, Albert Parks, John Miller, and Robert Gibbsg
tvvo Violinists, Brin Kissel and Sherman Eighmey, While Bernard Horle, Ethel Mae Flickinger, Rich-
ard Dyson, and William Ward play the cornets. Tommy Baker is the pianist and the trombonists are
"Scotchie" Little and "Wally" Weart. Last come the very important drummers, vvho are jimmy
Denman and Milton Fridley.
Of the thirteen members of the orchestra, four will be graduated in june. These are "Wally" Weart,
"Scotchie', Little, Bernard Horle, and Ethel Mae Flickinger. Two former orchestra members, Wayne
Guy and Irwin Spiegelman, graduates this year too, are in the armed forces having left Mynderse
shortly after Midyears. Both of these musicians have been missed very much.
SENIOR A CAPELLA CHOIR
The Senior Choir is a professional organization or so we try to make it. Our members belong not
just because of a desire to sing nor for the credit to be obtained, but because in singing we work as a
unit and aim toward the highest point, musically.
The choir has a membership of eighty, under the direction of Miss Betsy Ross, thirty-two sopranos,
thirty-one altos, eight tenors, and nine basses. As you can see, we need more boys in the choir, but
those we have are doing much to give balance to the whole. Two of our basses, Irwin Spiegelman
and Wayne Guy, were called to the service of their country. We hope that they will always remember
us and the fun that we all had together.
We had two concerts during the year. Our Christmas Carol Sing was given for the community
December 13, and for the school as an assembly on December 15. We sang sacred and secular songs of
the Christmas season.
Our Spring Concert was given as a school assembly on April 12 and the regular program was pre-
sented on April 13. At this concert we introduced to our audience some new arrangements of rare,
but beautiful, folk songs and patriotic songs. Several members formed a triple-trio as an additional
Our last endeavor of this year was a Gay Nineties Assembly Program.
We were glad to welcome back a former member of the choir, Charles Cator. He received a medical
discharge from the Army last year and resumed his position in the bass section.
The ones who will be members of the choir next year want to extend their thanks and appreciation
to Miss Ross, who has resigned, and congratulate her for the fine work she has done as their musical
To our fourteen seniors who are leaving us we wish the best of luck and much happiness throughout

WIG AND RGUGE . ..
Wig and Rouge began the year by electing officers. Barrie Doane was elected president, Molly Van
Cleef, vice-president, Aileen Poole, secretary, and Barbara Campbell, treasurer.
The round of activities began under the capable leadership of Miss Allen, the new dramatic coach.
On October ninth the club contributed some of its talent to a school assembly program in which
they presented a short two character comedy, "Table Service." This was followed by another assembly
on December eighth when they presented two plays.
On February twentyfthird the students were again treated to an assembly sponsored by Wig and
Rouge. This time it was in the form of a radio program, the subject of which was, "Little Known
Moments of History." It consisted of humorous skits and commercials in honor of the month of
February. Included in these were: "Paul Revere's Ride," "Pocahontas Saves the Captain," "George
Washington's Cherry Tree," Aunt Sally's Hour, a public speech on the topic "Health," and a musical
offering. The program went over with a "bang" and was conclusive evidence of the talent of Mynderse
With the coming of spring, Wig and Rouge sponsored a Sadie Hawkins' Dance. The date problem
was solved by having the girls ask the boys. Everyone wore old clothes, slacks and overalls being
included. Corsages were sold at the door to the boys. Once inside, the girls kept their dates far away
from the long stag line of dateless girls who, because of the man power shortage, came unaccompanied.
It was a novel and successful party.
Thus the year of activities closed for Wig and Rouge, but it was a year filled with fun and happiness
for all its members.
LIBRARY CLUB. .
The year opened for the Library Club with the election of officers. Phyllis Brady was elected presi-
dent, Barbara Campbell, vice-president, Joan Reardon, secretary, and Lena Blawski, treasurer. The
club continued under the able leadership of Miss Compitello as club adviser. Eleven new members
were admitted to the club.
The members of the club sold sandwiches at one of the football games and they were welcomed
by the spectators who discovered that they were hungry after standing for an hour or more. The
proceeds from the sale were used to have the library drapes cleaned and for new books.
During the Christmas season, the club had a Christmas party. Invitations were library notices in
green and red ink. The Freshmen members who had charge of the meeting, entertained the upper
classmen. Games were played and gifts were exchanged, and the party was a huge success.
During Regents week, the members, taking advantage of the lull in library reading, took an inven-
tory of the books in the library.
After January exams the members were quizzed on library questions, prepratory to a library exam
given to all students on March twenty-first.
During the whole year the members aided Miss Compitello in keeping the books in order and in
the general upkeep of the library. Members volunteered for desk duty during their study periods and
performed their task of keeping the students in the library quiet and the books, coming in and going
out of the library, in order. This work is valuable to the students in that it teaches them the basic
Thus the year proved a valuable library experience to many Myndersians who became better ac-
quainted with the books and book readers of our school.

year Charles Campbell was elected president, Wesley Lay, vice-president, Joan Young, secretary, Rita Capparelli,
treasurer, and Brin Kissel, program chairman. The program for the year has been lectures and demonstrations on
astronomy and various other science subjects. Two ofthe members ofthe club, Charles Campbell and Harry Weart,
Won honorable mention in the Fourth Annual Science Talent Search conducted by the Science Clubs of America,
to discover and develop scientific ability.

The year's activities will reach their peak at the annual Roman banquet. At this feast in the Home Center
everyone will come dressed as ancient Roman citizens in tunics. The Latin I students having the highest average
will act as slaves Whose duty it is to provide entertainment and to serve the Roman food.
The aim of the club is to increase the interest in the Roman people and their language.

JUNIOR RED CROSS.
junior Red Cross organized since January 26, 1942, has had a busy year. They filled Christmas boxes for foreign
children, made utility bags, scrapbooks, hospital bags, international scrapbooks and wash clothes. They have
designed Christmas decorations and favors for trays, and writing boards for Sampson Hospital, besides assisting
in the War Fund Drive, and Blood Donor campaign. The Red Cross is proud that Mynderse Academy is eligible
to fly the Minute Man flag. Heading the organization under Miss Campany's supervision are Betty Cross, president,

The Junior Choir is made up of boys and girls from the seventh and eighth grades, under the direction of Miss
Ross. Our membership totals 85 this year: 36 sopranos, 25 altos, and 24 alto-tenors. The songs we sing are not
only three-part, but unison and two-part as well, and we learn to sing the folks from countries all over the world.
Besides our performances at the Christmas Carol-Sing and the Spring Concert, we have staged two assembly
programs-the first, a one-act operetta, "Shooting Stars," and the second, "Radio Minstrelsf'

best of -them, but on more frequent occasions it just couldn't reach its stride, seemingly displaying youth and
The first game Cresulting in a 6-6 tieD was a night affair with Clyde. Earning a first period score the Mynderse
boys held a scrappy Clyde eleven to the only remaining touchdown.
Invading Penn Yanfs home field the locals held that undefeated team to their lowest margin of the season.
Mynderse scored first but couldn't keep the Keuka boys from inflicting a 20-6 defeat.
Playing for the first time on their home field the Mynderse eleven
showedlremarkable spirit in their game with Newark by ending the
game with a 13-13 tie after trailing 13-O at the half. - -
The local lads dropped the next game to a strong Lyons team, 36-O,
on the .State Street field. The following week Mynderse turned in their
only win of the season by defeating Palmyra's eleven 33-6.
The following Saturday Mynderse stubbornly tried to stave off a
14-12 defeat at the hands of Canandaigua in one of the bitterest con-
tests of the season. -
One of the best teams Waterloo has had in recent years defeated
Mynderse in the last game of the season its first win over Seneca Falls
in sixteen years. The aggressive Orange and Black playing on a wet

team when the final whistle blew.

Relying on only a few 1943 regulars, the squad showed "fight" although they met teams with superior
The Mynderse nine, after losing three straight games, beat their traditional rival Waterloo. A Win
was again chalked up against the Black and Orange in the last game of the season, which Was, inci-
dently, Coach Baker's last athletic contest at Mynderse.
James Jarrett had the highest batting average, hitting .333. -
Burt Marsh, who played a "bang up" game at first base, was chosen by his teammates as the team's
most valuable player.

BASKETBALL . ..
The 1944-45 Mynderse basketball team coached by Mr. Rallis, assisted by Mr. Parkin, turned in
one of the most impressive records for that sport in recent years.
Of fourteen league games played, the Blue and White won six. They also beat non-league Sodus
twice. With James Jarrett and Joe Kemak as co-captains the Blue and White hve annexed the Class A
League championship. The Mynderse quintet was defeated in the quarter linals by Irondequoit with
the score of 30-27. Irondequoit went on to win the Section V basketball title.
Eddie Lorenz led the team with a total of 197 points scored on an average of 11.6 points per game.

new game was introduced to Mynderse. This was field
hockey. Answering the call for players were teams of
junior and senior girls. The junior team succeeded in
winning the field hockey championship. They were
offered very little opposition as the senior team often
failed to show up for their games.
The sophomore soccer team walked away with the
honors by winning all of the eight games played.
Between seasons the senior volleyball team, captained
by Rhoda Wentz, led the league by scoring four wins
over Aileen Poole's team's three.
A - ee- Interclass basketball was the next athletic activity
to promote interest. Fourteen players were chosen to
represent each class. The captains of teams representing
them were Margaret Brown, seniors, Helen Chalker,
juniors, Betty Burgess, sophomores, and Nancy Doane, freshmen. These teams competed in after
school contests. The Junior Class emerged undefeated.
Miss RUBY SMITH, Girli' Coach
Spring brought forth archery, tennis, and softball. Softball teams composed of members of various
classes contested for the championship. When Mynderse girls went out for tennis and archery the
courts burned and the targets stung.

In a sea of mud the Seniors defeated the Juniors in a championship lay-off game to win top honors
in the intramural football league. The game was featured by some fgncy place kicking and running
of Wayne Guy and the circus pass receiving of Joe Kemak. For the losers Gustafson, Miller, and
Most of the touch football encounters were played on a wet and muddy gridiron thus hampering
the potential brilliant play expected. There were several excellent footballers in the ranks, among
which were Guy, Kemak, Torchinelli, Callan, Gustafson, Miller, Meeks, Page, Johnson, Allen, I.
Spiegelman, Griggs, Hadley, D. Paradise, L. Peterson, D. Peterson, and J. Sinicropi.
Following the football season two volleyball leagues were organized, known as the American and
National leagues. The Seniors once again appeared in the play-offs for the school title. However, the
Sophomores, winners of the National league title, stung the Seniors thus emerging as champions of
the school. The Sophomores were sparked by Martin and Paradise: the Seniors, by Jarrett and
With the conclusion of volleyball all eyes turned toward basketball. Since the intramural program
was encouraging "play for all," a promising number of basketball hopefuls were on hand. To make a
more equitable distribution of com etition two basketball leagues were established, known as Class A
and Class B leagues. The process ofp segregation relative to abilities brought the more proficient players
in the A division and the boys whose talents were more latent, in the B division.
The seniors continued to show their superior playing by emerging as champions of the A division.
The graduates were undefeated in their schedule of eight games, the Juniors being in the runner up
position. In the B division the Tigers and Giants were crowned co-champs. In their march to the
basketball championship the Seniors were led by Ainsworth, Griggs, Lay, and Weart. The Tigers
and Giants had such fine performers as Pratt, Serling, Eighmey, Bonnacci, and Sinicropi.
An intramural wrestling tournament program commenced in March and is still functioning with
divisional championships of the school to be decided. Some of the outstanding wrestlers are D. Allen,
R. Worden, M. Sinicropi, G. Torchinelli, C. McCann, Bonnacci, Hibbard, and C. Andrews.
A softball intramural league will be featured for the spring program along with a tennis tournament.

BLOCK CLUB . ..
In 1938 representative athletes started Block M with Mr. Wormuth the central figure in shaping
its policies. Until he resigned from Mynderse teaching, he continued in this capacity. Now Mr. Parkin
is club adviser with Carlo Giovannetti, president, James Jarrett, vice-president, Wayne Guy, secretary,
Charles Campbell, treasurer.
This year Block M-ers have assisted at games and sponsored projects to finance the giving of sweaters
to members completing two years in the club.
Wayne Guy, Gino Cologgi, Earl Guthrie, and Irwin Spiegelman were entertained before leaving in
the spring for the Army.
