When one thinks of the intellectual great of the world one recalls Confuscius, the great philosopher and teacherj so we have naturally chosen China to introduce this section devoted to our administrators and the faculty-those friendbf guides to learning in Mynderse Academy. Board of The Board of Education has the responsibility of formulat- ing the educational policy for the Seneca Falls Public Schools, Comprising Mynderse Acad- emy, the First Ward and Stan- ton Buildings. Its members are progressive, forward looking citizens who provide instruc- tors in a well-rounded curricu- lum. This includes besides the basic grade instruction, aca- demic, scientific, vocational, MR. JOHN BRAcHT President s MR. JOHN FYFE MR. FRANK KNIG MR. JAMES ROMEO MRS. J HT OHN MANN 9 Education and aesthetic training for the students attending our schools. The personnel of the board has changed but little in recent years. Mr. John Bracht is the veteran president, while other members include Mr. John Fyfe, Mr. Frank Knight, Mr. Thomas Bevins, Mr. James Romeo, Mr. Earl Hilbert, and Mrs. John Mann. The latter is finishing out the unexpired term of Mrs. William Medden, who resigned recently. MR. THOMAS P. BEVINS MR.

I J a a fp 9 Q s ' 9 a ' , . J , -4 1 Q1 9 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- plished. A FRANK W. VOGEL Principal Mynderse Academy 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.

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 weakened. 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.

Cafaro Guy Bartran Finn Sabatini 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 the audience. 4 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 Ferdinand Nicandri. 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 0131946 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.

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 Microphone Staff. 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.

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 ...CLASS OF1948 ...CLASS CDF1948 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.

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.

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 , , , , H. O'Br1en FIHH 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- of-tovvn schools. 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.

MYNDERSE MICROPHONE 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. 38 BAND 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. Back Raw: Shuster, Nugent, Seitz, Wetmore, J. Carpenter, Horle, Miller, Ashbough, Martin, Little, W.

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. 40 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 entertainment. 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 director. To our fourteen seniors who are leaving us we wish the best of luck and much happiness throughout their lives. Back Row: Robbins, Flickinger, Marks, Brown, N.

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 students. 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. 42 1 1 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 library problems. 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. Back Row: Cline, Lama, Riley, Cherchio, Kissel.

In the beginning of the 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. LATIN CLUB . 44 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, Betty Morehouse, vice-president, Barbara Campbell, secretary, Gloria Povero, treasurer. Back Row: F.

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' JUNIOR CHOIR. 45 Brown, Sabatini, Tarquino, Verzilla, Poole.

At times the 1944 football eleven, playing an unpredictable season, looked as though it were as good as the best of -them, but on more frequent occasions it just couldn't reach its stride, seemingly displaying youth and inexperience. 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 field had imposed a stinging 28-0 defeat on a lighter but fast Mynderse team when the final whistle blew. .Mynderse will lose from its football team through graduation Don Ainsworth, Charles Campbell, Gino Cologgi, Carlo Giovannetti, Earl Guthr1e,JamesJarrett, Wesley Lay, George Schaertl, and Harry Weart.

The 1944 Blue and White baseball team, playing an eight game schedule, won three of its games. Relying on only a few 1943 regulars, the squad showed "fight" although they met teams with superior skill. 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. Those who did not return to the 1945 squad because of graduation are Burt Marsh, Florance Sullivan, and George Amidon. The season's results Were: a Mynderse Penn Yan . Mynderse Canandaigua Mynderse Geneva . Mynderse Waterloo . Mynderse Penn Yan . Mynderse Geneva . Mynderse Canandaigua Mynderse Waterloo . 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. The team will lose through graduation the following: Carlo Giovannetti, James Jarrett, and Joe Kemak. Wayne Guy left for military service just before the last Canandaigua game.

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 Meeks starred. 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 Gi ovannetti. 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.

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. 52 BASTIAN BROS.
