Text from Pages 1 - 106 of the 1949 volume:
HIS is the yearbook of the "Forty-Niners," a collection of nuggets of
knowledge and experiences acquired through the past year.
lt is with regret that we realize that our high-school prospecting is so nearly
finished. The parties, the classes, the everyday events that have filled our lives
will soon be turned to memories-golden memories. To record these has been the
purpose of this book.
Wise teachers have "panned" the knowledge to be given us and filled us with
hopes, dreams, and ambitions for bright futures.
When first we hit the trail in search of priceless knowledge, we little realized
that we would find not only that knowledge which can be learned through text-
books but also a wisdom and deeper understanding of life acquired through the
daily associations that are an integral part of Mynderse life.
As the weeks, months, and years passed, a sense of superiority surged in our
veins. The pauper had become the prince with this new discovery of knowledge.
Now we feel humble again, because we have learned enough to realize that our
training is iust beginning.
The following pages will reveal, in part, the good times brought about by the
dances, plays, extra-curricular activities, and classes that have gone to make up
the rich ore of our school life.
Those of you who are leaving Mynderse Academy will treasure the memories
these pages will induce, those remaining in school will know what Mynderse has
in store for you.

WO YEARS AGO, MR. MARSHALL, YOU CAME TO
MYNDERSE ACADEMY FROM SERVICE IN THE EUROPEAN
THEATER. SINCE THEN YOU HAVE WON OUR RESPECT BY
YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF YOUTH PROBLEMS AND OUR
RECREATIONAL NEEDS AT "THE BARN." YOUR REVIVAL OF
TRACK HAS BROUGHT US A NEW SPORT INTEREST, AND
YOUR INTERESTING SCIENCE CLASSES HAVE BEEN STIMU-
LATING EXPERIENCES. FOR THESE REASONS WE DEDICATE
THIS I949 'MYNDERSIAN TO YOU.

BOARD UF EDUCATION
Our Board of Education, that group of seven men who govern the destinies of' our
school system, is made up of the following: Mr. John Bracht, president of the board,
and Mr. Frank Knight, Mr. Robert Glanville, Dr. Angelo Romeo, Mr. Bernard
Vergamini, Mr. Robert Pollard and Mr. Orville Yates.
At their monthly meetings they consider such subjects as maintenance of the
several school plants, recommendations of teachers and textbooks, and other
problems involving the efficient maintenance and operation of the schools.
During the past two years they have made several improvements. Among these
are the installing of the radio intercommunication system, the redecoration of the
Elizabeth Cady Stanton School, the Homemaking Center, First Ward School and
Mynderse Academy, the acoustical treatment of Mynderse Academy Auditorium,
the purchase of band uniforms, the installation of fluorescent lighting in First Ward,
new equipment for the Homemaking Center, the erection of a steel fence around the
athletic field, and the completion of other desirable improvements to increase the
efficiency of the school system.
Not all the plans of the Board center around the present, but the future needs
have been anticipated in the contracts that have been let to the John Bellardino
Inc., Contractors, for the creation of three projects: a new cinder track, a new foot-
ball field, a new baseball diamond, and draining, grading, and seeding of the State
Street athletic field.
B. Vergamini, A. Romeo, 0. Yates, J. Bracht, Pres., R. Pollard, F. Knight, R. Glanville.
Seneca Falls, N. Y.
Congratulations and best wishes to the modern 'UFORTY-NINERS." While the objective of
the 1849ers was primarily material, you 1949ers are qualified for far greater achievements. You are
among the fortunate 49 per cent of our nation's youth who will graduate from high school in '49. We
trust that your GOAL wi-ll be greater than mere gold.
Your knowledge, skill, critical thinking ability, and moral character, if properly developed and
implemented, will insure personal success. The proper utilization of your abilities will also be effective
in desirably shaping the future world situation.
For every privilege there is a corresponding obligation or responsibility. Consequently, your GOAL
in life should be much higher than that of the less fortunate 51 per cent non-graduates.
HFORTY-NINERSQ' I challenge you to be always ambitious, courageous, strong and prosperous
"GOAL DIGGERSY' Keep your AIM high and you will meet the CHALLENGE.
The theme of this year's Myndersian suggests "Then and Now" and is especially appropriate since
this marks the one hundredth anniversary of Free Education in New York State, for in 1849 the
legislature first attempted to mandate a minimum amount of free common schooling. Previously each
community was a law u11to itself relative to education. Those who wished for an education, and had
the means, managed to obtain what they deemed necessary, but the majority received very little.
Today education is free for all youth between the ages of five and eighteen. Beyond this the state
through its teacher colleges, institutes and scholarships, has made it possible to obtain an education
which fits the present student for almost any career.
Let us hope that you, the Seniors of 1949, and those who are to follow, will make use of these
opportunities and fit yourselves as better citizens for this, the best country in the world.

On a bright, cheery, September morn, a small caravan was seen beginning its trek across the land
towards a great goal. The wagons carried a gay, laughing group of boys and girls, known as the
As we rumbled along through colorful autumnal days, we began planning for a get-together party,
so on November 11 our plans were formulated and the "Junior Armistice Soiree" made its bow. Such
a delightful time we had dancing, eating, and watching the entertainment, especially the prize fight.
These prize fighters had acquired their exceptional brawn by participating in the various activities
About a month after our Junior Party, and while passing through an extremely cold region, we
realized that Christmas was here so stopped in a small clearing to spend the holidays.
After two weeks of pleasure, we again trundled on across the thick blanket of snow. Since all had
a premonition of some hard task ahead, we decided to have a last fling. Seated together one sunny
afternoon we shouted in laughter at what the others had made into a talent show. We can't forget
"Rambling Roses," our quartet, and the band who had sung and played at "Cornegie Hall."
It was well that we had our jollity then, for a few weeks later we were challenged by a band of
inquisitors and it took all our mental ingenuity to conquer. The contest waged for almost a week.
While we rested at night we planned our strategy for the next day. Day after day we fought to sur-
vive and when the week ended, the Battle of the Midyears ceased, and we had triumphed.
One clear afternoon our caravan stopped at a little schoolhouse, and after all had alighted, we
entered. A group of boys and girls rushed forward to a platform, and after an announcement the
rest of us realized we were to be entertained by our talented actors in the annual play, "Date
Bait." Afterwards we all agreed that our play was a big success.
The journey went on over steep hills and smooth plains, and finally on an evening in June we came
in sight of another caravan named the "Grave old Seniors." To wish them well on their trip, we held
a wonderful party, which included "eats," enjoyment and entertainment.
Soon the end of the trail was in sight. With great care we proceeded on the plans for our Prom.
Everyone eagerly gave his services to make it the best and loveliest Prom ever held.
A year has passed and we have traveled over smooth plateaus, along calm sections and in troubled
regions, and now have reached our goal--the border of Senior Land. Our final tests are over and
only the Prom is left of our activities .Our advisers and teachers who made the trek with us, gra-
ciously gave us their aid, without which we would have stumbled many times. To them we say thank
you. None of us will ever forget our Junior trip across the Land of Knowledge.

A short one hundred years ago, the Forty-Niners in their covered wagons, started out iI1 search of
precious gold which would make them rich and prosperous.
In September, 1948, nearly one hundred years later, we new, eager, sophomores began our quest
for the possession of a different kind of gold-knowledge and friendship. We were sure our year'S
journey would turn out successfully because of the competent leadership of our advisers, teachers,
and well selected officers.
Our class cooperated with other Myndersians to welcome the new frosh who have inherited our
places and to help them adjust themselves to new conditions, for we were happy to give them the
benefit of our suggestions.
It was an ambitious, talented class, well represented in the many Mynderse organizations such as
band, chorus, Microphone, Student Council, Junior Red Cross, Science Club, Girls Athletic Associa-
tion, Block M, Hearth and Camera Clubs. All found sophomores ready and willing to take advantage
of the extensive activity program Mynderse has to offer.
In sports, our teamwork was outstanding. Many of our loyal sophomores played on the J ay Vee
Team, showing their ability and sportsmanship all through the basketball season. To help lead us in
cheering at these exciting games, three of our peppy sophomore girls were chosen by the cheerlead-
ing organization. Football, tennis and track also attracted the attention of our athletic group. The
girls in our class must not be forgotten for their participation in intramurals.
Early iI1 February, we examined the results of our midyear exams and found that many of us had
gathered quite a bit of dust along with the real gold we had been searching for. Our aim for the
second semester was to replace this dust with more gold.
May 13, 1949 found us and all other Myndersians clamoring to attend the wonderful sophomore
dance, "Maytime Magic." It was one of the biggest events of this exciting year with enchanting
music, dancing, food and lively entertainment.
Almost before we realized it, the time had come for the Frosh-Soph play tournament in which we
worked hard, discovered and were able to show our hidden talents.
It waSn't long before we met, on our journey, the hot summer sun and warm breezes which led us
and the freshmen on our annual picnic at the lake for a day of relaxation and fun. Food, of course,
played an important part in this fun-packed day. Many pictures were taken of our bathing beauties,
and as the day ended, we compared our golden tans which were to remind us all summer of this
At last we reached our journey's end and to test the quality of the gold we had acquired, came
final examinations. A happy group of sophomores emerged from these, some battle-scarred but all
full of plans for the coming year.

September found one hundred and twenty-one eager young freshmen entering the halls of Mynderse
Academy searching for fun and knowledge. When a prospector looks for a mine he searches for the
one that will provide the most gold. After he has discovered a vein of gold of great value he is most
pleased with himself. So it was with the '49ers in 1849 and so it is with the Freshman Class of 1949.
When we finally got settled we found, much to our disgust, that our homerooms were up on the
third floor. A few of us decided that someday when we strike gold we will install an escalator system.
We also began to realize all the "gold" which was a part of our class. We recognized personality,
scholastic ability, musical talent, and all the other golden qualities that make a class outstanding.
We showed our spirit of adventure when we started joining the school activities. Band, Orchestra,
and Glee Club interested our musical classmatesg French and Latin Clubs received the attention of
the language students and the Hearth Club of the homemakers. Many of us interested in other
specialized fields joined Library, Science, Camera, and Acanthus Clubs.
We also stood out in varsity and intramural sports. Some of our classmates show great promise in
becoming second Blanchards on the football field. Our basketball team certainly put up a good, stiff
fight on the court.
Most of us studied hard during the first couple months of school, but we turned out full force when
we were needed to support the school's football and basketball teams.
The first big event for us was the election of class officers. We went in search of some capable and
fun-loving classmates and found them.
Next on our program was the annual Freshman Dance. The girls did a little gold digging when
"Musical Snowflakes" whirled around the corner on January seventh. We were very much honored
when the Senior Quartet agreed to perform for the entertainment. Everyone had fun and the Fresh-
men of '49 really struck it rich.
During the following few weeks it was found beneficial for all to do some studying as midyear
exams drew nearer and nearer. At last they arrived and now the not so eager freshmen entered the
school to meet their fate. Most of us survived, however, and we started our second and more im-
portant term of our freshman year.
We struck gold, in the form of talent, when the freshman play came along. The next few weeks
were spent in hard work frantically rehearsing. Our greatest hope was to triumph over the sophomores
who had won for the past three years. With the annual Frosh-Soph Picnic we settled our differences
with the sophomores. Everyone had a fine time.
Now, as we come to the end of this first year of treasure hunting, we look back on our accomplish-
ments with gratitude to our able advisers, who guided us on our search.
We hope that during the next few years we may acquire some of the golden qualities so evident
among our upperclassmen. We intend to devote ourselves to improving our class, so that when the
year 1952 comes around we will possess as much "gold" as the class of 1949.

For the first time in Your years, the Myndersc
Academy football team ended the season with a
sub-par record. Led by Captain Ronnie Sandroni,
the locals finished the season in a fourth place tie
in league standings, their record was 2-3-3. The
team was in there fighting all season but couldn't
seem to strike pay dirt.
The three top league teams-Penn Yan, New-
ark, and Canandaigua accounted for the three
losses. Palmyra and Lyo11s were the only victims.
Baldwinsville, Waterloo and Clyde tied us.
Coaches Cooley, Marshall and Bourdon will
have a problem in molding a IIGW playing com-
bination because they will lose sixteen players by
graduation. Some of these athletes may return for
post-graduate work, but this is indefinite.
The three year string of' victorious home games
was also broken this year, butthat record will still
be remembered by the sports fans of Seneca Falls.
The annual Football Banquet, held January
twentieth, climaxed the season. The Elks spon-

Mynderse Academy's 1948-49 basketball team
finished in fifth place in the final league standings.
Led by Captain John Capacci the Blue and White
cagers salvaged four league wins and one non-
league victory to leave a season's record of five
won and eight lost.
Bob Freeland led the team's scoring as he netted
94 points during the season.
Nearly all the losses were accountable to a dis-
astrous third period, or second half. In the entire
season the locals never had a really bad first half,
but they seemed to fold in the second many times.
Coach Cooley will have to build a new quint for
next year' as most of the team are graduating.
They include: Capacci, Freeland, Paradise, San-
droni, Hartman, Lemma, Faiola. and Oakes.
Returning next year will be Bishop and many
of' the Jay-Vee players, but none of these have
played as a unit. There may also be some post-
graduates, but this is not certain.

Although the record made by the J. V.'s during the year was not outstanding
from the mathematical standpoint, the team itself was impressive. It met and reck-
oned with teams thirteen times during the year, winning six, and dropping seven.
High scorers for the entire year include Peterson, Sinicropi, and Staley. Marked
improvement was noticed among the team in handling the ball, setting up plays,
etc. Bob Knight in particular showed great improvement.
The 1948 edition of the Blue and White tennis team ended its season with a 5-5
record. The ten game schedule consisted of two matches each with Geneva, Clifton
Springs, Canandaigua, Waterloo, and Penn Yan.
Captain Tom Olmstead was a consistent winner in the singles competition and
Cramer and Cafaro won many double matches. Losing them, Coach Wallace Smith
will have only two lettermen, Jack Pratt and Bob Knight, returning to form a
nucleus for the 1949 squad.

UN THE CINDER PATH
Mynderse's second track leam in several years
showed great promise in the l948 season. The
team competed in l'our dual meets, one triangular,
the other, conference competition. We sent three
athletes to the Section V meet in Rochester. Al-
though winning only one, the team inspired an
avid interest for track and field in this town by
holding two home meets and by nearly upsetting
Mynderse took second in the triangular meet
with Geneva and Solvay. Canandaigua trimmed
us as did powerful Penn Yan. Newark was our sole
victim. The team could gain only twelve points in
the conference meet but qualified the following for
the sectionals: Mackey in the individual 4-40,
Hizzieri in the individual 220 hurdles and Dom-
browski, who won a shield, in a relay.
Louis Hizzieri led the team's scoring with 5445
points. Captain Don Mackey was next with 23M
points. Ray Butz and Bob Freeland added 23 and
Allen Odell and liay Butz were elected co-
captains of the 1949 team. Caracillo, Rizzieri,
Carpenter, Sisson, Ashbaugh, Aronson, Baker,
Cherchia and Piseatelli were lost by graduation.

JOHN CANALE, Coach.
The Blue and NN hite nine, under lhe guidance ol'
coaches Canale and Swinger, salvaged four wins
out ol' a twelve game schedule, including l'our non-
league contests. Captain Lee Letezia's charges had
spirit but lacked in hits and runs, and there were
several close losses.
The most valuable player award, determined by
the coaches, went to Lenny Passifione, who also
led the team's batting over the campaign. Lost by
graduation were: Broadbent, Bowers, Letezia,
Passifione, Hanlin and Franeeschi. With several
returning veterans, Coach Canale hopes to have a
victorious team next season.
The story of the 1948 games can be briefly
summed up. DeSales was a victim of Broadbent's
pitching and Passifione's three hits. Waterloo then
took a sloppy game. DeSales again lost to the
locals. Franceschi saved a victory over Canan-
daigua but poor ball gave Waterloo another vic-
tory. Geneva tossed a no-hitter and Holy Family
upset us. Canandaigua took a heartbreaker as did
Penn Yan. Geneva romped again and Penn Yan
took another thriller. Staley's hitting took Holy
in jf WW?

sociation went into elfect in September, 1948, cover-
ing membership open to all girls in the high school
with a first requirement that a girl must earn 100
points through participation, according to the
The three main purposes of the G.A.A. are

MIKE CHANGES MAKE-UP
Students Laud Revisions
Several progressive changes have
been made in the 1948-1949 Myn-
derse Microphone. In the February
tenth issue the second page had a
complete new make-up. These
changes were so well received by the
students that succeeding issues were
done in a similar manner. A poll of
current topics, short biographies on
outstanding, senior Mynderse girls
and boys, teen-age etiquette letters,
feature stories, and questions about
Mynderse and Myndersians were in-
cluded in the new make-up changes.
When the fashion column was
used, photographs of Myndersians
in striking apparel were frequently
Due to the increased cost of print-
ing and paper the Microphone price
was increased. Only twelve issues
were published because of the rising
price of printing, nevertheless, the
students supported the paper with
their usual enthusiasm.
Microphone members receive no
high-school credits for the work they
do. This work takes study halls and
after school time. When you are a
Microphone member you learn not
to count on study halls. You can
never tell when the galleys will come
back. However, Nlicrophone mem-
bers feel rewarded when they sec
each issue roll off the press.
The Microphone has continued lo

ism. This bi-weekly publication is
still rated among the best by Myn-

The Mynderse Band first hit pay dirt in September when they received sixty-two new uniforms
which are very different from the old ones. Each uniform consists of a double-breasted coat of blue
embellished by a gold trim and gold citation cord. A military cap of corresponding colors is also
included. There are four three-piece drum majorette uniforms and a white uniform with shako for
the drum major.
The excellent progress made by the band and by various individuals through the year was dis-
played at the annual spring concert, presented March 18 before the usual enthusiastic audience.
Beverly Vreeland, Nancy Ashbaugh, Frank Del Russo, Pat Mastroleo, Jack Pratt, and Jack
Hubbard participated in the All-State Band at Canandaigua, November 21 and 22.

Snare Drummers-SULLIVAN, PRATT
On December 2 through fl., Eleanor Shepherd and Frank
Del Russo took part i11 the All-State Band at Eastman
School of Music in Rochester.
The entire organization of sixty members, attended the
Music Festival at Geneva, May 21 and 22.
This 1948-49 band is different from last year's in as
much as a great number of first chair and important
players were graduated last year. With the exception of
Janet Reynolds, flute player, all first chair people are play-
ing those positions for the first time.
Although the band as a whole is rather new to the parts,
there are several good soloists. Those who presented solos
at the concert were Frank Del Russo, Pat Mastroleo and
J ack Hubbard.
On January 3, Jack Pratt was granted membership in
the National Association of Rudimental Drummers, and
was awarded a certificate of merit for his drumming

Under the direction of Miss Schlosser, the Senior Chorus presented two programs throughout the year.
the "Pop" Concert on March 4, 1949, and the annual Spring Concert on April 7th and 8th, 1949. The types
of music pursued by the group have been varied, both in subject and in degree of difficulty.
The chorus earned the highest rating possible to attain at the Spring Festival sponsored by the NYSSMA.
Miss Schlosser hopes that this will set a precedent that will continue for many seasons to come. ,
Since the Senior Chorus did not give an operetta this year, the group was given the opportunity to choose
the music it felt would be the most enjoyable to perform and hear in the concerts which would be given during
the year. It is felt that a good choice of numbers was made and both concerts were well received.
One of the problems of the present chorus was proper
seating arrangement. Due to the increase in strength in
the men's section, an arrangement providing proper vocal
balance was sought. This was finally accomplished by
placing the men in the center of the group.
The following were the officers selected to carry the
group through the year: President, Donald Mackey, Vice-
President, Nona Holland, Treasurer, Joe Lemma, Secre-
tary, Jean Sugliag Librarians, Barbara Byrne, Chief Li-
brariang Joyce Lind, Dominic Caraccilo, Anna De Pas-

grades who are vocally inclined, at Christmas time, to-
gether with the Wig and Rouge, presented an operetta

was participation in the April Spring Concert given by the

with the election ol' officers. Membership reached
a new high, as thirty-l'our applicants were accepted

The club members displayed their co-operativc

classes de frangais quelques livres au sujet du
"French Clubs" et aussi des films.
Le Cercle commenca ses dances en decembre et
les continua une annee. C'est une partie du pro-
gramme social du Cercle.

Secrelary . . , BARBARA AMIDQN it limited membership in the club to eighteen stu-
dents, and divided the membership into work
groups in the fields of their choices: photography,
medicine, machines, animals, or chemistry.
A project on the lighter side was the talent show
sponsored by the Library and Science Clubs.
Hidden talent among the faculty and students
appeared, so it was voted to make it an annual
Since Francis Cammuso was the only new mem-
ber accepted this year, there was no formal initia-
tion party. There was, however, a Christmas party
in its place, at which the members had a gala time
singing carols and playing games.
Throughout the year at the meetings, various
members gave lectures 011 scientific subjects of
interest to other members.
The scientific attitude was lost sight of at the
annual picnic. Food, more food and fun were the

BEACON SERVICE. SIR!
When the Beacon Milling Company, Inc., was started in 1920, it
established a precedent in feeding service. Instead of following the
prevailing practice of making poultry and livestock feeds primarily
as an outlet for specific by-products, Beacon formulated its feeds to
meet the requirements of the poultry and livestock to be fed. Beacon's
conception of feeding service, then and now, calls for the unrestricted
use of ingredients in its formulas according to their proven feeding
value, and for the production of the best possible rations that science,
experience and modern equipment can make.
To complete this feeding service, specially trained Beacon service
men give up-to-date practical aid to the farmers using the feeds.
Back of this corps of service men are the Beacon Poultry Research
Farm and the Beacon Dairy Research Farm, which are constantly
alert to develop progressive steps in feeding and management.
