PUBLIC-SPIRITED CITIZENS The Board of Educationis aim is superior academic, vocational, and social training for the 1,800 children in our schools. Ever conscious of their responsibility to all the people of the Seneca Falls Central School District, they strive to offer the best education possible in clean modern schools with good quality supplies and equipment to do the job. Mr. Knight, president of the Board, began his service in 1937 g Dr. Romeo in 1947, Mr. Yates in 19493 Messrs. Garnsey, Parker, and Shuster in 1950 When the district was centralized, Mr. Toner in 19555 and Messrs. Christopher and Kuney in 1957. With an aggregate service of 69 years, the 9-member board efficiently serves our school in formulating the education of our youth. They devote many hours of their time Without pay to the problems of our district. As is their just due, We extend a vote of thanks to each and every member. Mr. Frank Knight, President A They discuss our needs 5 I ARTHUR L. BAKER, Syracuse University, A.B., B.S., M.S. Your parenis and your communify have built this fine building, every brick of which represents sacrifice and hard work on their part. The past four years you have been building an education which, if well completed, has represented some sacrifice and hard work on your part. Good teachers, facilities, and guidance have been available to you. How well you have taken advantage of your opportunities will determine your success in getting the future job or entering the school of your choice. You have faced the challenge of competition in high school just as you will be required to face it every day of your life. If you have developed habits of drive, courage, integrity, and respect for others at Mynderse, you will do well in the game of life. We Will follow your progress and take pride in your successes. The faculty and administration Wish you well. Sincerely, Arthur L. Baker Superintendent of Schools 6 RAYMOND M. RADTKE, Buffalo State Teachers' College, Cornell University, B.S., M.S. The iheme, "More fhan a Building," . . . has special meaning to you, the graduating class of 1958. As freshmen, your careers began in a brand new building. You are the first class to complete four years in the "new schoolf, Because of this, you have come to realize that Mynderse Academy is more than a building-it is a tradition, an important part of your life. Your life in school has been a signiiicant means of transmitting the Mynderse tradition from one building to another. The traditions of Mynderse Academy, high standards of education and excellent reputation did not just happen. It is the sum total of the contributions of dedicated, qualified teachers and staff, an interested Board of Education and community, and the contribution to school life of your class and the many preceding yours. As you enter a more complex life, your contributions through the type of life you lead are even more important. "American needs guided persons as Well as guided missiles." It is your responsi- bility to help transmit the great American tradition from one generation to another. Best wishes for success in your life ahead. Sincerely, Raymond M. Radtke Principal 7 CARL B.

FACULTY The Class of '58 is proud to here present our Mynderse faculty. In looking over these past four years, we are sure that we Will never forget them. What would we have done without those extra review classes before the finals? Each teacher has added in some way to our dances, plays, and sports events. As we leave our alma mater and its teachers, we would like to thank them sincerely for all their efforts. TERESA M.

Mynderse is more than a building: The kids who come to school together a, basically alike- doing and enjoying the same things. Whether they are getting "banged up" in a snowball fight or sipping cokes at Ward's, Myndersians are having the time of their lives together. Seeing friends and school-mates each day helps us learn to live together and share what we have with all our chums. It is from these associations, at Work and at play, that We know each other better and find the path of growing up. 1 Fun Af School Our many extra-curricular activities proved suc- cessful, especially when they made such a "hit" with the rest of the kids. Here Mike Kahl displays his replica of Sputnik. It even "beeps." Juice got caught in the act of "downing" a forkful of spaghetti while eating in the cafeteria. Though our basketball team was not the very best, we cheered and cheered for them.

Our Junior boys gave us their version of the hula at the Junior All-School Party. We never dreamed it could be so . . . Our slumber parties filled the weekends when there was nothing to do, or just when someone got the urge to have one. We brought our stuffed animals and clung to them all night. Incidentally, no one ever slept. Annette sings at the Junior All-school Party, "Crazy Socsf' She, like so many other Mynclersians, finds singing a pleasant and relaxing pastime.

Since students' plans differ, it is easy to see that a program had to be set up that could handle both situations. Under ltlr. Rogers, the guidance department works to fulfill these needs. When you enter high school, you find a Wide choice of subjects. The guidance department helps you choose the correct curriculum for your particular need. As your Senior year approaches, Mr. Rogers helps you fill out college applications, gives recommendations and, in general, guides you along in your post-high school endeavors. Valedictorian Judy with the books she has used in four years at Mynderse. To supplement the work of the guid- ance department, lVIiss Compitello, as Dean of Girls, helps girls adjust to school life. Any problems that arise pertaining to social adjustment are in this category, and it may extend to extra-class activities. In addition to these important tasks, the Dean of Girls cooperates with the attendance officer. Also, she assists with the freshman orientation program to start the girls along on the proper course of social development. Pi? 1 of -.

English projects this year consisted of grammar, literature, and library study. Literature books were supplemented by "Ivanhoe" for the freshmen, "Julius Caesarn for the sophomores, and "Macbeth,, for the seniors. "Practical English," silent reading review books, and regents review books aided grammar comprehension. Library Work was emphasized by using the regular materials-magazines, newspapers, pam- phlets, and reference materials. Freshmen had several classes in the library, While sophomores, juniors, and seniors wrote term papers using reference skills learned in previous years. Freshmen enjoyed books of travel, history, and science, along with short novels. Upper class- men read essays, plays, English and American novels, poems, and biographies. Sentence struc- ture, expression, punctuation, silent reading, composition, vocabulary, and spelling comprised the grammar course. An all-around knowledge of every phase of English is oH'ered to every pupil at Mynderse. The sophomores read their P. E.'s. Juniors learn that discussions can be fun 45 Mr. Morrison explains . . . Anyone rate 100 Percent? Social Siudies Keeps Us Informed. The roots of our present and future lie deep in the past, and it is only through studying and interpreting the past that we will be able to solve the problems of the future. The background given us through four years of social studies at Mynderse Academy is excellent preparation for the solving of problems we will face. As freshmen we learn the basic geography of our nation and the world in citizenship education. Sophomores find that world history gives a clear and concise picture of other nations, growth and problems. As juniors and seniors we study the growth and development of our own nation from the days of colonization to our present domestic and foreign policy. Through various assignments supplementary to our textbooks-movies, discussions, oral reports, and term papers-our teachers try to make the study of these subjects as interesting as possible, for it is the interested student who gains the most. Through the well-known "Weekly News Reviewn and "American Observer," we learn of current affairs-history in the making. Social studies at Mynderse Academy makes us more aware of our democratic nation and the world of turmoil about us and develops within us a sense of pride and love for the United States and her people.

At Mynderse, students are taught how to think clearly and apply these thoughts to everyday problems. One of the main courses for this purpose is science. Knowledge of science is a must in this day and age of rockets, satellites, and missiles.With all the talk of a trip to the moon, we have to be conscious of the new developments in atomic energy and other scientific fields. The courses of General Science, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics supply knowledge of new developments and statistics. General Science, at the beginning of the ladder, lays the cement in the foundation. Biology, the next step, is the study of plant and animal tissues and their reaction and behavior to stimuli. Both Chemistry and Physics are advanced and are the basis of college science. To help explain the class work, laboratory periods are set aside where the students of both courses perform experiments supplementing the homework. Besides the work in class, each subject has special projects on which to work, the main one being the Science Fair. Oscar is helpful in locating parts of the body. Science Fair exhibits prove to be interesting. 48 , M ,V A T ,K- V ... . 4 fi A 4 ,' "" ,, ,Ji ' M5 f f fag. so . XV, ' f. ' ,1- .ff 145, i , l "I am the king of the beasts." Planning a Bon Voyage Languages Broaden Our Horizons French and Latin are the two language courses offered at hlynderse. Languages serve several purposes. They give a broader comprehension of the English language, and help to bring about better World understanding and cooperation through the knowledge of other people and their customs. It is amazing how much can be learned about English through the study of another language. It not only provides a greater knowledge of grammar, but also creates a much broader vocabulary. Grammar is the basis of these language courses, but background is also important. The history of the country is studied along with important figures in government, art, and science. Geography and places of interest are also noted to provide up-to-date information about the country. Food, dress, entertainment, and customs are considered, stories are read in the language being studied and are sometimes acted out. Puppet shows are often presented by members of the French class. Movies provide historical data, as Well as material about the lives and customs of these people. These methods provide entertainment and create more interest in language. Over half of English words come from Latin ones. Like to live here? 49 1 M 5 XX 5565 0 Wi L a Y . . X Concentrating on Transcription. Business Prepares For fhe Fufure The principal aim of this department at Mynderse is to prepare the students for a sound basic knowledge of the commercial world for future employment. The foundation is set through Introduction to Business. Accountant training is found in the courses of Business Arithmetic and Bookkeeping. Typing helps in the further development of the business students. The basis for the future secretary,s dictation begins with Shorthand I, where the students are taught the basic shorthand outlines. The second year is Shorthand II and Tran- scription, which emphasizes speed, as well as accuracy. Further business knowledge is acquired in Senior Office Practice and Secretarial Practice. The final segment before a student is thoroughly prepared for office employment is Business Law. Mynderse Academy is known for its excellent business courses, as well as for its beautifully equipped department for this work. K ,WMMKWW . I . 2.

Fine Arfs Aid Enioymenf Fine Arts are those which seek expression through beautiful or significant modes. The art pro- gram given at lllynderse enables a student to better understand and appreciate the standards of good taste. Within the art department, headed by Miss Trulan, drawing, painting, commercial designing, and crafts are offered. The surroundings of the school are made more pleasant and enjoyable by the art students' works. lvithout our art department, lllynderse would certainly be a dull, unlively building. lllusic, the art of sound, adds enjoyment to our school life. Vocal music, as in the Girls' Glee Club and the Varsity Chorus, develops the singers and urges them to participate in out-of-school activities, as Well as those in school. In instrumental music, fundamentals are taught and opportunities for expression given. This type of music gives enjoy- ment and an added depth of knowledge to the students who take advantage of it. hlusic gives life to Mynderse, for there are always students who rush to their classes humming a tune. p i""'Wll X X 'faqm 51 It takes a delicate touch. 1' ,:-'C' Study and planning precede construction. Learning a trade can be fun. In the north section of the building the halls are filled with a mixture of sounds-sounds that are born in the Wood and metal shops. Under the supervision of Mr. Davies and Mr. Parks many of our high school boys are busy learning the processes and skills they will later use in industry. The shop student has at his disposal the most modern equipment ranging from shiny hammers to printing presses. With these tools he can use his hands to create his ideas and designs, and make them tangible objects instead of envisioned projects. Practical Arfs Sfudy Agriculture, taught by Mr. Koska, includes a Wide variety of topics ranging from the study of parliamentary procedure to Work in the shop on various farm implements and the construction of apparatus for the farm home. In conjunction with the study of livestock, the pupils of the class take field trips and partici- pate in livestock judging contests. In the classroom the student learns fundamentals for farming, many of which he will use in his career in agriculture. It is the purpose of the ag classes to develop Well-rounded boys, boys who have a good back- ground in agriculture and in the many areas that contribute to farm life. Mr, K, reviews the reports.

Personal, social, and emotional adjust- ment and home emergencies were their second semester topics. Homemaking II girls learned of clothing and garment construction the first term and studied home furnishings the second term, making floor plans of their dream homes. Child growth, care, and development were the topics for Homemaking VIII, a first semester course, while in second semester Homemaking V, personal relationship, marriage, and family living were taught. Serves veryday Living. Driver Education is more than a program to teach the student the mechanics of operating a car, it delves into the psychological problems of the young driver. A student in Driver Education learns to accept responsibility-the responsibility of the driver to the community and his parents. A driver must respect the lives of others, and he must remem- ber that it is his privilege, not his right, to drive a car on the super-highways and byways of modern America. Those who learn this lesson of reliability receive blue cards which entitle them to drive at night at seventeen years of age. In a sense, it is a reward for accepting a responsibility that must be faced by all drivers. The bookwork of driving is important. Practice makes perfect, boys. -53 Fresh team at their best.

Fall sports consist of hockey, archery, and soccer. Basket- ball, volleyball, bowling, tumbling, and marching provide interesting Winter activities while tennis, badminton, baseball, and track complete the spring sports. Once a week the girls join with the boys to enjoy social dancing, which includes square dancing, folk dancing, and Waltzing. The boys, under Mr. Davis, engage in the same sports as the girls except that they add the popular sport, football, to their program. This is the first year at Mynderse that students got marked in gym, which is a state requirement. The students at hlynderse are very fortunate to have such a fine physical education department.

The Council tried to act on all complaints brought before itg and in many instances, Council action resulted in the correction of the difiiculties. To speed the time a student was required to spend in the lunch line, a separate milk counter, staffed by Council members, was set up for those who did not buy their lunch in the cafeteria. The Council provided workers for all home wrestling, basketball, and football games. After-game dances were provided for those who attended the basketball games. The supply store hours were expanded to include being open during the lunch hour, and the hall monitor system was given entirely to the seniors. The officers arranged an exchange visit in February with the Student Council of Geneva High School, which enabled our officers to see how other councils are organized. Two Council delegates were made members of the village recreation committee, and a new "Stu- dent of the Month" award was started by which the Council selected one outstanding student each month. The Student Council has done everything within its limits to aid the students with their problems. Back row: E. Passitione, D. Wormuth, J. Capacci, H. Kotkas, M. Hamill, E. Giusti, L. Simson, J.

We met during the summer at Miss Trulanis cottage and attempted to learn all we could about the production of a yearbook. Finally we chose the theme '6More than a building, we are the schoolg our living gives it lifef, The staff heads, who gave our efforts unity, were Editor-in-chief, Joyce Nicandrig Art Editor, Inge Sorenseng Photographic Editor, Bill Ottemillerg Sports Editors, John Bohensky and Charles Hayesg and Business Manager, Theresa Taber. We Worked hard, but enjoyed every minute of itg and most of us had our first experience with mass production as We printed our division pages with the silkscreen. The business staff directed the seniors in a successful magazine drive which went over the goal of 653000. This started us on our way to financing the yearbook. The remaining funds were secured through advertising and the sale of subscriptions. Mr. Carlo Frappolli and Mr. Donald Sutterby aided us in supplying photographs and the Bullock Studio made all the portraits. We really appreciated Editor Joyce Nicandri's sympathetic understanding when the Words didn't flow freely from our pens or the deadlines caught up with us. Much credit and thanks go to Miss Trulan and Mr. Becker for their help and patience. I. Sorensen, Art Editor W. Ottemiller, Photographic Editor I A 58 mix Lf' i i HQ.

Under the able direction of Mrs. Wilson, the fifty members of the staff have worked very dili- gently. They spent many hours and much effort in interviewing, Writing, and assembling the pub- lication in an attempt to bring school news and information of interest to the attention of the students and faculty. The paper serves to give practice in journalism to the staH members and teaches the importance of accuracy and of meeting deadlines, thus providing useful experience for school and outside life. Several members of thc Microphone staff attended the annual Empire State School Press Associ- ation Conference at Syracuse in November, where our paper won third prize for its advertising. 3rd row: R.

LIBRARY CLUB Library Club members cleared away the summerls dust from the books and magazines stacked on the shelves and planned for a new year. Many new books were processed, magazines set out, and additions to reference materials arranged. At mid-term, girls on desk duty took inventory, the whole school was checked for missing books, while the older volumes were cleaned, repaired, and grouped correctly. After mid-term, club members assisted in term-paper assignments for the sophomores, juniors, and seniors. This work consisted of knowing all reference material and being able to adapt it to the students' assignment needs. Bi-weekly meetings were held on Mondays, during which members took library quizzes, learned how to apply the Dewey Decimal System, and prepared better ways to serve the student body as a whole. To make our library as efficient as possible was the need recognized by all members and the main goal for the year. Back row: C. Timmons, Secretary: Miss Compitello, Advisor. F rom 1-ow: A.

SCIENCE CLUB Science Club, under the competent direction of Mr. Dickieson, has had a very interesting and informative year. This organization has as its goals the gaining of a better knowledge and under- standing of science and scientific progress and the stimulation of interest in this field through various and diversified experiments. A demonstration of a topic of interest to all was given by members of the club at each regular meeting. The members of the club worked on special individ- ual projects to be shown at the Annual Regional Science Congress. Because of the work of this organization, our school has become more aware of how interesting science can be. QQ2? LATIN CLUB This year Latin Club activities were patterned after the events of early Rome. The conspiracy of Julius Caesar was portrayed with much dramatism at one meetingg and at the Christmas party, the story of the first Saturnalia Cpagan Christmasj was told. Other well-planned card and charade games were played-all of which promoted special knowledge of the Latin language and Roman customs. The annual Roman banquet was held in the homemaking center, togas and tunics, decorated with mock jewels, were fashioned by all present. Those with the highest averages in the two Latin classes acted as slaves. "Ab ovo ad nucesn Ceverything from eggs to nutsj was served. Two guests from the faculty were invited to enjoy the gala feast. Bliss lNIiller, club advisor, with her enthusiastic and understanding manner, has led the club through another successful year. 3rd row: P. Smallwood, J. Haysscn, R. VVeber, K. Davis, P. Stewart. H.

ACANTHUS One aim of Acanthus is to beautify the school with seasonal decorations. Members are assigned to the front foyer, the bulletin boards and the cafeteria. A mosaic mural was designed for each side of the front entry and members Worked together to make and mount the tiles in attempt to complete them before the year closes. Art class members designed and painted wall decorations for the library and music room of the new Clinton Street School. Acanthus paid for the materials With money earned by running a check room at the home basketball games. Many thanks are due to Acanthus and Miss Trulan for making our school a more enjoyable place in which to learn. :union uso caoss Under the able leadership of President Raymond Plscitelli, Vice President Louis Dellefave, Secretary Joey Hayssen, and Treasurer Richard Burtless, the Junior Red Cross began its annual Red Cross drive. The money received goes either to aid the Senior Red Cross in some of their projects by adding to the fund or to send relief packages to needy people all over the World. The purpose of this organization is to help support the Senior Red Cross and to promote com- munity spirit on the part of the students at Mynderse Academy. -3rd raw: J. VanEpps, H. Miller, M.

Everyone enjoyed the Christmas program which included soloists and a quartetteg The program was closed With the singing of carols by the student body, led by the chorus. The second semester was begun under the supervision of Mr. Buzak, and work was started on the spring concert held in May. Much time and effort were spent preparing for the all-state competition held at Ithaca. Many thanks are due the music department for providing us with many enjoyable hours of music. p y GIRLS' GLEE CLUB Girls Glee Club, directed by Mrs Fraser, is composed of freshman and sophomore girls. The organization gives training in group singingg and after one year of participation, a girl becomes eligible for the Varsity Chorus. Those girls with the ability to play the piano are encouraged to accompany the group in their musical productions, enriching their own experience and contribut- ing to the organizationis success. Their first project, the Christmas Program, was performed equally well at both the school and an adult assembly performance. Other appearances included the County Festival at Ovid, the Spring Concert for Mynderse, the Junior High, St. Patrick's and an evening concert for the public. !,th row: C. Wolfe, J. Santinello, E.

Under Mr. Anzalone a group of musically minded students meet each week to study chords, scales, and song structure. These topics are broken down into their various components, and then they are thoroughly analyzed. This effort is not Without purpose. Once the students have become skilled in the handling of these parts of music, they attempt to write their own arrangements. These are discussed as to their merit With the idea of improving the student's knowledge and appreciation. It 3- DANCE BAND The school band has this year branched out into a new field, that of supplying music for school dances. Organized under Mr. Anzalone it is hard at Work rehearsing a wide variety of tunes. It practices many old favorites and also "pop', songs. Being a new group, the dance band has had a slow start, but as it gains experience it will im- prove. The members are nearly all underclassmen with only one senior in the band. It promises to provide the school with the best in dance band music in succeeding years. Standing: Mr. Anzalone, Advisory J. Hart, R. Harris. Seated: Qml row: D. Lyke, W. Jackson, Rich. Burlew, J.

The hours spent in practice for these chilly afternoon appearances made our band one in which every Myndersian takes pride. The band lent a cheerful note to our Pep Rally and parades. The sixteen piece orchestra developed and directed by Mr. Anzalone has also become a group of which to be truly proud. At our assemblies and concerts the members came forth with a new style-the modern Latin American beat. This led to increased interest and appreciation by stu- dents and faculty alike. The organization of a dance band to play at school and outside functions is another new achieve- ment of Mr. Anzalone and some band members. With the band you will Hnd the twenty majorettes, under the supervision of Miss Darling. The girls kept smiling faces as they shivered during football games and the Pep Rally and snapped through parades and a basketball game intermission in their new outfits.

With Mrs. Plummer as their very capable advisor, the oflicers for the new year were elected. Candidates for membership, who had earned their credits by participating in dramatic activities, were initiated in November and December. Following these initiations, parties were given for the new members. Members of the Wig and Rouge applied make-up for the Rotarians and the Kiwanians in their yearly productions. They enjoyed announcing the school assembly programs and Working as stage crew for other school events. To further interest and knowledge in dramatics, Wig and Rouge members attended a college stage production. The activities of the club Were climaxed by the annual picnic. Back row: B. Doyle, C.

CAMERA CLUB The members of the Camera Club, under the guidance of Mr. Becker, have been busy this year teaching several of the younger members the proper procedure in the use of the polariod camera. During the club's regularly scheduled meetings the members have been viewing films explaining the correct technique in the use of cameras and the proper lighting of the subject. In addition, club members are studying slides to determine color composition and balance. In conjunction with this program the members are experimenting with taking colored pictures. 9 " 6 ig., PROJECTION CLUB One of the greatest benefits to the teachers is the availability of educational movies. Without the Projection Club, under the supervision of Mr. Dickieson, this educational aid would be lost to the student. During meetings the members are given instructions in the proper methods of running the movie projectors. This assures having trained operators who can efficiently run the machines. The devoted members of the club give up many study halls to provide the students with the movies the teachers desire them to see. A great deal of knowledge has been gained by the students, thanks to Projection Club. 3rd row: Mr. Dickieson, Advisor, K. Davis, R. Wolf, D. Perry, R. Kirkhart, R. Rice, P. Updyke, G. Niles, C.

A. is to help members grow as individuals in the home, school, and g community. The aim is carried out through many of the club's well-rounded activities. By selling refresh- ments with the F. F. A. at home football games, the members learned how to work with other ' people. At Christmas, the homemakers decorated the tree in the front foyer which helped promote school interest. The members worked on their Junior and Chapter Homemaker Degrees and made Easter favors for the Johnson Home. To promote community interest, the girls made a UN dis- ' play and sent a CARE package to a needy family. As a money-raising project, the F. H. A.ers sold all-occasion cards. Two delegates were selected to attend the F. H. A. State Convention and almost all members attended the spring district rally and Farm Home Week. To end a successful --153-EE year a Mother-Daughter Banquet was held. si The Future Farmers of America, commonly known in Mynclerse as the "Sodbusters," extend community and farm services through the leadership and cooperation of all club members. On G' the county level, our F.F.A. Chapter placed Hrst in the Lewis Bell Dairy Judging Tour, Hrst in the Parliamentary Procedure Contest, third in the Poultry Judging Contest, and second in the District Parliamentary Procedure Contest. Q The "Sodbusters,' proved active in many community projects during the past year as in install- ing lights for the skating rink, demonstrating with local crops, planting 18,000 trees on local farms and constructing bleachers for the baseball field. ' Under the supervision of Mr. Koska, the F .F.A. completed another successful year. 3rd row: A. Kanaley, J. Greenlee, K. Hoster, J. D'Eredita, P. Dyson, E. hlartello, J. Healy, C. Farney, B.

Valesente Mynderse opened its season with a 38-0 win over Newark in a well-played night contest. The Blue Devils continued thier winning ways by overtaking Oswego, Q0-14, in a game marked by good line play. Wlatkins Glen fell next, 59-6, thanks to hard-running backs. The Asiatic Flu forced the Penn Yan game to be cancelled, the following the week Devils went to Clyde to defeat them, 14-13, in one of the best contests ever played in this area. The team next rolled over Lyons and DeSales by scores of 34-IQ and 46-0. In the "big game" of the season against Waterloo, the Devils rallied as true champions to down their arch-rivals, 6-2. All-league players were Joe Noz- zolio, Darryl Anderson, Ray Piscitelli, and Bob Valesente. Much credit for the seventh consecu- tive championship is due Coaches Davis and Koska. The Mynclerse J.

The team, coached by Mr. Nelson, had great potentialities but didn't get the breaks that teams need. Our Wins were two against DeSales and one each against Geneva and Canandai- gua, which was an upset victory. With five men returning to the squad, next year's team should be stronger than this year's. Three players will be lost through graduation, they are Bob Valesente, John Sand and Ray Piscitelli. Players coming up from the junior varsity are Billy Burns, Malcom Fraser, and Buzz Kirkhart. Managers were Dick Burtless, Fred Houck, and Mike Same.

TRACK TEAM The Mynderse Academy track team concluded the 1957 season marked by a huge rebuilding program. Lower classmen were earnestly encouraged to come out for the squad and gain valuable experience. As a result, the "Cinder boysv failed to win a meet, but instead gained morale. Many times the Academy line was dotted by Freshmen and Sophomores, which means the sport is once again becoming popular at Mynderse. A few bright spots on the team were "Speed', Burtless, "Skip" Bobeau, and "Miken Scannell. This year marks the last season for Coach Frank Cooley. Despite this year's poor record, he turns an experienced squad over to Mr. Morrison. Mr. Cooley has a record of which he can be proud, his teams of the past, especially 1950-53, were the talk of the school. Back row: Coach Cooley, W. Bobeau, R. Sullivan, E. Nenoff, R. Burtless, F.

The bowling team ended the season in third place, improving on their fifth place finish of last year. Their high game totals were 884 and 878 against Waterloo and Canadaigua respectively. Next year will show even better results, according to Mr. Winthrop. John Clay, one of the league's top five bowlers, will be back along with Bill Brown, Mat Feola, and Bob Campbell. Many of the boys are sophomores who participated in intramural bowling. Only Don Lohr and Joe Nozzolio will graduate. High games for Mynderse were Bob Campbell, 211, and John Clay, 202. Clay's 573 was high triple for the team. Ready? Wresfle! Due to a lack of strength in the low-weight classes, the Mynderse grapplers lost six of eight matches. Experience was the main thing gained this year. Only three boys will be lost through graduation so it means brighter things are ahead for Coaches DeBottis and Conlin next year. The team did have its good moments during the season. In its first match the grapplers wal- loped Brockport 40 to 10. Four boys had records over the 500 percentile mark. They were John Bohensky 8-3, Bill Crough '7-4, Bob Focht 6-4, and Ron Focht 5-5. Mynderse had two Finger Lakes Champions, Bill Crough in the 165-pound class and John Bohensky in the heavy-weight division. Standing: J. Bohenskv, W. Crough, J. Deary, W. Willis, P. McMillen, R.

Blue Devil Bowmen Not only are the adventures of Robin Hood read at Mynderse, but his skills are mastered by the Blue Devil Bowmen. The club is under the leadership of Mr. Cooley and is in its third year of existence. During the fall the members planned an archery practice range and set it up behind the school. Mr. Cooley instructed the technics and safety of the sport. As for the winter project, they studied and made their own equipment-targets, bows, and arrows. In the late spring, a club archery tournament was held. Thus far the club has made great strides in promoting the skills of archery. They boosf sporismanship Booster Club, a new organization at Mynderse under the capable direction of Miss Darling, was formed by several interested seniors. Students joined the club and elected twelve representa- tives, three from each class, to choose the officers and set up a Constitution. The members, commonly seen in their blue beanies, worked diligently all year to encourage more people to go to the sports events and to give the participants more confidence. The Boosters and the F. F. A. jointly sponsored the "Touchdown Hopf, a dance to promote good will between Waterloo and Mynderse students. 6th row: L. Stahlnecker, N. Neal, D. Smith, G. Ottemiller, B. Rotondo, M. Clary, P.

To be eligible to become a member, candidates must have a varsity letter in one of the many sports offered at Mynderse. The aim of the club is to promote good sportsmanship at games and to develop leaders not only in school activities, but in community life as well. After the initiation at "The Barn" in September of 15 new members, ofHcers were chosen. Joe Nozzolio was elected Presidentg Bob Valesente, Vice Presidentg Dave Wormuth, Secretaryg and Dick Burtless, Treasurer. Under the able leadership of the new officers, the Block M began another successful year. Programs were sold at football and basketball games, movies were taken of two football games: and the bonfire, preceding the Waterloo football game, was organized by members of the club. Members drafted a new constitution and ended the year with a picnic. 80 3rd row: J. VanEpps, D. Bracht, M. Gurba, P. Lambert, B. VanCleef, M. Fraser. Qnd row: M. Hamill, J. Kelly, B. Brewer M. I.

Hazel Reynolds served as President. In the early fall unforgettable initiations were administered to the prospective members both in the gym and at "The Barn." Twenty-one new members were admitted. The most outstanding achievements of the club were the drawing up of a constitution and the revising of the point sys- tem, which encouraged more students to participate in sport activities. On Fridays after meetings, the G. A. A. members occupied the gym, not only to have fun, but to perfect their skills. In accordance with the usual custom, the G. A. A. sponsored their annual fun-packed Sadie Hawkins dance. The gals had a chance to ask the men of their choice and give them orignial and comical favors. The Club put on many playdays and were the guests of neighboring schools in various sport activities. Again this year the responsibility, leadership, and participation of all members carried out the club's aim to encourage interest in girls' sports. A picnic at Seabreeze ended the year's activities with fun and relaxation. 81 1 Volleyball between boys and girls promotes sports- UMYNDERSE, BEAT WATERLOO!" manship. Sporfs Snaps Tennis team: P.
