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.

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.

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.
