THREE HUNDREDTH ANNIVERSARY
PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS
WAY back in the days when the first schoolmaster in the Boston
Latin School chastised the iirst naughty schoolboy for disturbing his com-
panions, he said sternly, "Peace, ye ingratei Would ye create ungodly
noises despite my commands ?" Thus for the first time, peace, involving
a group of people, was discussed in the American schools of 1635. That
little pebble, once dislodged from its resting place, started an avalanche that
has grown to such huge proportions down through the years, that it has
caused a world to stop long enough in its daily grind to wonder and fear
and make test plans for world peace.
Three hundred years ago no one questioned the right of a nation to
declare war in order that it might avenge rights which it felt had been
violated. Today the world is beginning to realize that perhaps a nation is
not justified in sacrificing its members to settle grievances.
This enlightened attitude may be traced directly to the progress of
education. Each new generation, through the guidance of its teachers, has
developed a more tolerant, more far-seeing philosophy of life. There can
be no doubt in the minds of today's thinkers that education, as a vital, sub-
stantial, tangible thing, has revolutionized the thoughts of the United

ODAY, the world is enveloped
in a turmoil of confusion, distrust and
fear. The men in whose hands the fate
of nations lies, are undecided and hesi-
tant. They are torn between two desires
-to grant the demands of peace-loving
millions, or to accede to the desires of
commercial enterprise. The decisions
made in this year will vitally affect the
future of the world.
We represent the Future. We have a
right to ask for consideration from the
men who are shaping our destinies.
With this in mind, we dedicate the
"Niagarian', of 1935 to the principle to
which we shall ever devote ourselves.
Men of Destiny, we plead for-PEACE!

We sincerely regret the death of one who, although she was
not a member of our school personnel, was always kind, consid-
erate, and sympathetic. Many of us knew her intimately, for, in
her position as wife of the Superintendent of Schools, who was
a former principal of Niagara Falls High School, she constantly
kept in contact with our school life.
"A Being breathing thoughtful hreath,
A Traveller hetween life and death 5
The rearon jirnz, the temperate will,
Enduranre, foreyight, rtrength, and i'hill."
MRs. JAMES F. TAYLOR
:ie at as as
Taken suddenly from his family and friends, he will always
be remembered for his charming personality, his unselfishness,
and his warm-hearted friendship for everyone.
"One who never turned hi! hath hut rnarrhed hreart forward,
Never douhted cloudy would hreah,
Never dreamed, though right were worried, wrong would triumph,
Held we fall to fire, are hafled to ight hetter,
Sleep to wake."
af as ae af
To our thoughts there will often come the memory of a
beautiful girl, always laughing, always cheerful, always sweet,
a gay companion and a true friend, having a delightful person-
ality. The Senior Class will sorely miss their fellow-member.
"A girl not perfert, hut of heart
So high, with thought: to hind and sage,
That euen her hoper hecanze a part
Of earth'J eternal heritage."

Superintendent of Schools
To the Class of 1935
In the maze of economic and social theories
which are prevalent today, I wonder that you
graduates are not completely bewilderedg you must
feel like a ship tossed this way and that by oppos-
ing gusts of Wind. May I suggest two rather fixed
lamps that may help you steer your course? In all
the turmoil of these modern ideas of what can be
accomplished by legislation, no one has success-
fully repealed the law of supply and demand or
the Ten Commandments. Together they constitute
a fair body of economic and social law for your

To Each Senior:
The commencement season brings with it the
pleasant privilege of extending congratulations to
those who are about to be graduated. This gradu-
ation period has now arrived for the class of 1955.
We shall be sorry to see you go. Your class has
shown wisdom in the choice of those responsible
for the conduct of its affairs. I have found it a
pleasure to work with them and you.
As you leave Niagara Falls High School, my
good Wishes go with each and every one of you.
I sincerely hope life will bring to you the success
and happiness your efforts deserve.

To the Seniors:
Reluctantly I say "Farewell" as you
pass into the realm of Niagara Falls
High School Alumni. During the
short time I have been at the Senior
High, I have had the unique privilege
of being an acquaintance and friend
of the Senior Class. I regret that time
did not permit me to know each of
you personally. I Wish to thank the
class of '35 for bestowing upon me
the honor of being class adviser. It
has been delightful to Work with you
and I trust I have not disappointed
you in my endeavors. To each Senior
I sincerely wish success in all your

Greetings to the Seniors, Whose co-
operation, originality, and persever-
ance have characterized their many
successful enterprises. In Working
with those interested especially in the
publication of the "Niagarian," I have
learned to hold in high esteem many
members of the class. It is with great
sincerity that I congratulate the gradu-
ates of 1935, and wish thern success

I extend to you, the class of '55, my
best wishes for success in all your

success in life is measured only by

'gUpon the whole it must be said, that
the first and most important step towards
peace, is sincerely to desire it .... 'The

Class Poem - l935
THE UPWARD TREK
As the glowing ball of golden color
Rises slowly in the eastern sky,
A solitary soul starts up the mount of life,
Girded with the dawn of vigor, the staff of hope,
The cord of patience, and an honest will.
Rapidly at first he ascends the mighty slope,
As dawn lends lightness to his sturdy limbs.
Here and there a loosened pebble
Lets slip his feet upon the mountain way,
But high above, the pinnacle of success
Still draws him farther on that upward trek.
Then, as the dazzling sun slowly
Pursues its course through the lofty heavens,
Dawn departs from his wearied limbs.
Yet, doggedly, the valiant trudges along
The path now dangerously rough.
The tiny pebble has become a massive rock,
Unsurmountable except through strength of will.
But as surely as the fiery orb does blaze
Its trail through the pale blue heavens,
So, too, does the footsore struggler,
Defying destruction, ply his upward way.
The lofty peak is yet quite high above,
But, armed with patience, hope, and will,
Wfho cannot attain their heights?
With here a friendly twig to grasp,
And there a rocky hand to grip,
The traveller, weary and triumphant,
Drags his tired body to the summit
And basks in the glory of the noon-day sun.
BEN JAMIN GOLD, C an Poet.

CLASS NIGHT ADDRESS
E, who are going from our school tonight, would like to leave
a three-fold message. First, we give sincere thanks to the teachers and super-
visors who have aided us so greatly during our stay here. Secondly, we wish
to say that memories of our enjoyable times in this school will live as long
as we live. Thirdly, we promise that the strong loyalty we have for the
ideals which our school has impressed upon us shall lead us on to a finer
The instructions we have received here prepare us well for our future
life. We have seen in high school some previews of the problems of our
life to come. We have been taught to solve these problems in our studies,
and, also, in our activities-social and dramatic organizations, athletic asso-
ciations, and student government. Our work and play in these activities
have given us a course in "Practical Living," from which we have drawn
general ideals and principles that we shall be able to apply to specific tasks
in later years.
We have been prepared here, too, for the earning of our livelihood.
The college entrance students will use their high school education as a step
to higher learning in the professions, arts, and sciences, the academic and
commercial students are ready to take up jobs which their abilities will
determine. High school, we think, has trained us well for our proper work
Our education, however, we do not regard purely as a practical utility
to give us distinction, a better position, or more wealth. We realize that
only one-third of the hours of our life is spent in earning our living. We
also realize that there are some things in life more valuable than material
things. Therefore, the culture gifts of education-refinement of the mind,
enlargement of viewpoints, and enrichment of the imagination-we con-
sider as important as the help education has given us in fulfilling our
vocation. We understand that, in one sense, education is its own reward,
and we shall retain what has been taught us for its pure wealth alone.
In leaving school, the members of our class both lose and gain. We
lose the definite progress from one grade to the next-a progress which
most of us will not resume in college. We lose the firm and helpful guid-
ance of our teachers. We lose friends, and student interests. But we gain,
on this night, the strongest feeling of progress we can have-the climax
of our progress so far-Graduation. We have acquired here a preparation
for whatever life may offer, and with some confidence and optimism we can
face the difficulties that lie ahead of all of us. Now we have our chance to
build a new world or put skylights on the old.

HE years we have spent at Niagara Falls High School hold many
memories dear to us. Friends and teachers have left an indelible mark upon
us. Each one of us has enjoyed to the full his pleasant sojourn here. We
are stepping forward into a new world, perhaps a bit strange and fearsome
to us. Ignorant of our future, we pause to think once again of our delight-
ful past, and recall the wonderful days this school has given us.
We were Freshmen. It was September, 1932, and registration day. We
rushed to school very early that morning, hoping to be the first in line.
Imagine our surprise to discover that the whole Freshman class had the
same idea! We never will know how we lived through that awful day.
The following weeks were even worse. We were scorned, not even
noticed, because we were "green freshiesf' The bewildering array of
teachers, the endless halls, the innumerable students, all served to confuse
us greatly. Finally, however, we began to breathe normally again. School
became more a part of us.
Being Hfreshiesf' or sophomores that year, we had not yet begun to
make our presence felt. We still felt inferior. When Wing Collar Day came
'round, we shrank even more. However, we successfully survived this
modern form of torture, and merrily hurdled the Regents that followed
Now, being Juniors, we began to wake up, and look about us. We
even adopted a distinctive swagger as we casually surveyed the rest of the
student body. We were almost Seniors, and we intended to make our
presence felt. Therefore, we joined organizations in the school, took an
active part in sports, watched for an opportunity to distinguish ourselves.
It did not come until Wing Collar Day. Then, with brilliant red ribbons
and ties, we challenged anyone who dared to tackle us. No one dared.
The Seniors pretended to be too busy with the Freshmen to bother about
us, but we all knew better.
After the Regents of that year, we donned a serious, far-away expres-
sion. Anyone could tell by looking at us that we were Seniors!

Peacock blue and peach were chosen as the class colors, the tea rose
became the class flower, "No Failure Hinders Success," became our class
motto, Benjamin Gold became class poet, and Kathryn Steele, song writer.
This year, Wing Collar Day was Senior Day, as far as we were con-
cerned. Flaunting our new class colors, we took an active part in the day's
proceedings, especially at the roller skating party.
The Senior play, "Nothing But the Truth,', by james Montgomery, was
a great success. Once again we Seniors had scored!
The "Niagarian" issue gave us more opportunity to boast. We were
positive that this had been the best year book ever published-although
next year's Seniors will probably say the same thing about their year book.
And now, we are making more history. Now, we have turned to
another page in our life book. It is blank and fresh, waiting for the writer
to continue his story. With a firm determination to think clearly, act justly,
and live rightly, we look forward to what the future holds in store for us,
always remembering, "No Failure Hinders Successf,

ECAUSE I was fortunate in passing Geometry, because I just skimmed through
Algebra, and because I never did have any use for Mathematics anyway, the wise and thoughtful
students of the Senior Class of 1935 appointed me Class Statistician.
Our class is somewhat smaller than many of the preceding ones, and numbers only 432. Of
this number it is estimated that 350 Seniors were called down to the ofiice at some time or other
and asked by Miss Schultz to attend the daily detention session, 77 Seniors were interviewed by
Miss I-Iulen or Mr. Strough on such trivial matters as forgetting to attend school or neglecting
to do a little homework. The remaining 5 Seniors didn't enjoy school.
Two thousand five hundred tablets were purchased at the book store. Twenty-two were
actually used by the purchasers and two thousand four hundred seventy-eight lent to chiselers, who
never pay back.
The favorite loitering place of the male students was between the book store and the office
on the second floor. An average of 27 students assembled at the above-mentioned place between
periods, day in and day out, and commented studiously and intelligently on the passing unfair sex.
However, the Coach's ofhce opposite the cafeteria ran a close second in popularity as a "hang-out."
The one problem that most annoyed our mathematical mind was finally solved. We had
often wondered who said the most words per minute, Anne Hinckley or Lorayne Woodward.
One day we sneaked up behind these two as they were trying to out-gossip each other on the
matter of chain letters. Witlu the aid of an adding machine, we discovered that Lorayne was
the champion talker, with an average of 411 words per minute, while Anne only uttered a mere
407 words per minute.
Mr. Abate and a few members of the Niagarian staff, in making frequent trips to Buffalo
to see the engraver and book cover agent, in rushing to Fort Niagara for information, to the
Board of Education building every day, to all the painters'in town every few hours, to 7 widely
distributed photographers 4 or 5 times every day, to a typist out in De Veaux section, and even
travelling as far as Syracuse, used, conservatively, 10 gallons of gasoline a day. At the present
price of 55.18 per gallon, Mr. Abate spent 551.80 per day for gasoline or a total of 35102.07 from
March to June 10. One slightly used Model "T" Ford, 5 coats of paint for this car, and 25
double-dip ice cream cones could have been bought with this money. They traveled a total dis-
tance of 8,400 miles, or the equivalent of a trip from Niagara Falls to Istanbul, Turkey, and
back, with enough money left to buy plenty of hot dogs and soda pop on the way.
On our Senior list are young men of whom we are justly proud. These 5 Seniors have
formed an association called the "5-Year-Men Club." They have faithfully attended and con-
scientiously executed their scholastic duties at N. F. H. S. for 5 long years and are deserving
of the title.
Exactly 250 magazines and dime novels were collected by literature-loving study hall teachers.
Among these were Nick Carter's "Twenty Famous Classics", "Dick Merriwell's Defense of the
Weaker Sex," or, "Straight Shooters Always Win", and "Baseball Joe's Ninth Inning Strikeoutf'
or, "In the Nick of Time." Incidentally, these magazines were never returned by the teachers.
Do you know that other Senior classes will have to be far above the average to reach the
high scholastic standings set by 25 of the Seniors? Do you know that there are 79 Seniors who
have never failed to support their school teams? Do you know that Harlyn Dickinson is one of
the cleverest artists ever produced at this school? And do you know that Louis Spector has the
largest freckle in school? In fact he has only one, but that one freckle covers his whole face.
Reams and reams of statistics could be written concerning the Class of 1935, but let us hope
that the accomplishments of every individual Senior in the future will offer enough proof of our

POWER CITY OF WORLD BECOMES PEACE CENTER
NIAGARA FALLS CENTER OF INTERNATIONAL PEACE
HUS will blaze the headlines across the papers of the world.
The New York Times must be the first to announce it to the world. With
this grim determination, I swiftly mounted up to the blue highway in my
little gyro-plane and sped Northwest. My instructions from the editor-in-
chief, jack Gellman, were still ringing in my ears. "Cover the Peace Con-
ference, Anne, but work in a little on the city as well. Play up the idea that
President Welch was born there-why, he was a pal of ours in high
school! But do not forget that the paper goes to press at midnight!" My
high-speed gyro would reach Niagara in an hour and this would give me
three hours to get my story.
It was not long before I saw an expanse of gleaming lights before
me, and I dropped neatly down on the roof of the Niagara Hotel. Two
mechanics ran up to help me. To my surprise, I recognized jack Christen-
son and Ruth Hays. just then someone behind me spoke, and upon turn-
ing around, I saw Donald Lambert, the hotel manager. He handed me a
little pamphlet and said, "Here is a Conference program. Down in the
ballroom jim Bowman is conducting the Carborundum program, which is
broadcasting the speeches of the rival Senators, Gold and Gold, on the
Hastily, I rushed down to the ballroom, practically capsizing Dick
Bowen, house detective, on the way, but I was just too late. Mr. Bowman
was just announcing a varied entertainment, before the next broadcast.
Herman Asma and Doris Harvey, famous adagio dancers, would entertain
the distinguished audience to the accompaniment of Frank Ansley on his
silver clarinet, and Bob Mitchell, "The Honey Crooner of the Air."
Thankful for the opportunity to escape this torture, I rushed out of the
hotel. Loud shouting from the direction of the Falls attracted my attention.
When I arrived there breathlessly, a policeman by my side whom I recog-
nized as my old friend, Tom Stewart, informed me that the famous Olympic
swimmers, john Vockrodt and Annette Stroup, were about to dive over the
Falls and swim the rapids. Suddenly I heard a roaring noise overhead. Two
pink-striped airplanes zoomed down, catapulted at the brink of the Falls,
and then with breath-taking speed, just escaped cracking on the rocks below.

On the side of the planes, in large letters, was printed "Hitchcock and Bagg,
Daredevil Flyers." Being curious as to the cause of all this excitement, I
inquired of a near-by park attendant, who turned out to be little Louis
Spector, and I discovered that it was an entertainment for the Bhopal of
Geek, nee Newcomb Prozeller. This newly turbaned prince of India had
been an accomplished stunt truck driver in his youth.
just then I heard, "Extra! Extra! Prohibition carried!" Upon looking
around, I saw the famous philanthropist, Richard Mather, who was now
providing food for the homeless squirrels and selling newspapers on the
side. I bought a paper. The first thing that caught my eye was an article
about john Dillon and jim Foster, ultra-prohibitionists. They had finally
convinced Congress of the benefits of dry law. As I glanced through the
paper, several famous names caught my attention. Larry Miner had just
won the 1960 cannon-ball tossing contestg Gwen Hooper, Womanls cham-
pion Ping-Pong artist, had just been challenged by the world champion,
Bill McDowell, Bill Duffett, Hollywood's best dressed man, had revolu-
tionized the latest fashions by wearing beauty spots to match his tie.
Leviticus Wicker and Gertie Hyde, starring in "Strong Man," taken
from Jean Gay's winning contest book, "Golden Morn," was being brought
to the Strand by the manager, M. Pringle. It was an all-talkie Lauroesch
production. The city jail had just welcomed Richard Hallett again, because
of his soap box orations on "The Balance of Power in the Home." The
jenss fashion sweepstakes had just been won by May Prozeller, well-known
society woman, who was going to donate the two thousand dollars to Miss
Margaret O'Brien's orphan asylum. A bevy of charming ladies smiled out
at me. When I looked closer, I noticed that Dorothy Brody, jean Butler,
Doris Grundhofer, jean Ullman, Erhma Bagg, Lauretta Stanton, Betty
Cannon, and Helen Davis had just entered the 1960 bathing beauty contest.
The preceding year, Ruth Fitch had won by a "neck." The Misses Hagen,
Heffelfinger, and Hall had just built penthouses on their estates on the
Niagara. Lorayne Woodward, famous entymologist, had just discovered
the way to rid the world of termites.
The raucous blowing of a horn distracted my attention from the paper.
Down the street rattled an ancient 1935 model La Salle jitney. In it I

recognized the beaming countenances of Tubby Wicker, Al Riley, and
Shupe Dales, successful business men back home for a fraternity conven-
tion. I hailed them to inquire about others of their brethren. Arthur Batts,
ambassador to Germany, was, they said, unable to leave his duties in order
to attend mere conventions. They consented to drive me to the old High
School, where the Peace Conference was taking place.
On the way we passed Hannel's Temperance House. At one of the
tables in the sidewalk cafe, we saw Rodney Harris drinking tea with Marian
Arnold, the new queen of Siam, and Norma Wills, countess of Egypt. His
eyes, however, kept wandering to the next table, where the glamorous
actress, Ruth Yarnell, and her publicity agent, George Whetham, were
Rounding a corner, we passed a towering structure called the Witt
Science Research Institute, run entirely by modern women. Some of the
staff, my companions said, were Margaret Brown, Ruth Buck, Virginia
Taylor, Marion Bartlett, Mavis Brown, Vlfinifred Hornsby, and Jeanne
As we reached the familiar portals, I glanced across the street. On the
corner where A1's Diner had once been, was a modernistic building. A huge
sign-"Charles Caccamise, World Champion Hash Slinger"-was blazoned
over the doorway.
I bade my chauffeurs a lively farewell and hastened into the building,
but I was too late. Bill Small, the famous lobbyist, was thanking Brother
Newton of Russia for his fine talk on "Fraternity Between Nations."
Suddenly I glanced at my watch. Five minutes to eleven! I must Hy!
I dashed to the hotel, jumped into my trusty gyro, and in a few moments
I was high above the glittering wonder city. Although I had had only a
limited time and had been able to meet but a few of my old acquaintances,
I felt I had a wonderful story-a full "Niagara Editionn for the New

Teachers, Classmates, and Friends:
All too soon, Time has passed. Tonight we leave your midst to enter
many and varied fields of endeavor. The path before us is unknown and
unexplored, and yet we face it with eagerness and impatience. We want to
move on, always with that zeal and determination so characteristic of Youth.
Today the world with its over-increasing economic and social conditions
needs us, and we shall give her the best that we have.
We Seniors wish to thank those whose helpful influence has guided
us through these three years of ever-changing duties. Let us remember,
classmates, that it is our achievements which will be their reward. With
this ever in mind, let us go forth with noble ideals so that our accomplish-
ments will be for them a record of which they can justly be proud. Many
of us will not attain high honors in life, but to meet our fellowmen with
kindness and sincerity is within the power of all. Edgar Guest has said:
"About us all are those who need
The gifts which we have power to give,
We can be friendly while we live
And by some thoughtful, kindly deed
Can help another on his way-
And that is service, come what may."
We hope we will be missed, but each year the junior Class steps in
with confidence and ability to take up the responsibilities for which it has
been trained. The years spent in Senior High School have been pleasant
ones, and though we may go far from here, it is these happy days of Youth
which will long be remembered.
Class of 1936, it is my privilege to bestow upon you this Mantle of
Red and Gray. It represents Seniority and carries with it many treasured
traditions. May you love and cherish it for all it symbolizes, and with
added laurels leave it with those who will carry on.

JUNIOR RESPONSE TO MANTLE ORATION
ENIORS, we, the Class of '36, wish to thank you for the trust
and faith you show in us by the placing of this badge on our shoulders.
You have done much in these past three years of which you may well be
proud. We congratulate you upon your wonderful accomplishments.
Years ago during the first expansion of the west, mail was carried by
a relay system of ponies. Such a system was called the Pony Express. One
rider would start the route at St. Louis and ride with all speed to his destina-
tion, where a fresh rider would take the mail on. Thus, after a succession
of relays, the mail would be brought to the Pacific.
Friends, the successive journeys of Senior Classes are very like that
means of communication. You Seniors started on your record-making flight
a year ago, on Class Night. You have ridden the road at a furious pace,
stopping for no one to catch up. Depression, hard luck, or grievances-
nothing has stopped you in reaching the next post. Tonight your ride is
finished. Conquest and success are yours.
Even though you are rejoicing upon rea.ching your goal, you cannot
forget that the mail must go through. It is our duty to start the next relay.
Inspire us with high aims, and send us off with Q'God-speed."-
Seniors, we have watched your ride this year with great interest, realiz-
ing that we shall be travelling a similar path a year hence. This token of
red and gray stands for the goal you have aimed at and accomplished. It
reminds us of our duty to uphold the splendid traditions you have so well
kept. It reminds us of our duty to our school and to you, the graduating
Now, as representative of the Junior class of Niagara Falls High
School, our beloved Alma Mater, I accept this mantle of red and gray,
symbolic of seniority, and thank you for it. Next year will see us travelling
the same road, enduring the same hardships, and conquering the same
obstacles as you have done. Friends, on with the journey, on to farther
goals! And have faith in us who follow.

"YE OLDE CLASS WILL"
AVING regretfully watched our last days at this esteemed institution of
knowledge dwindle into nothing, but feeling with the optimism that is characteristic
of youth that we will successfully continue onward in the school of life, we, the Senior
Class of 1935, at the Niagara Falls High School, in the Sovereign Commonwealth of
New York, being of lawful age and sound mind, find that the time has come to publish
this, out last will and testament, so that no overzealous underclassmen will be injured
in the ensuing scramble for those things which we so sorrowfully leave behind us.
ARTICLE I.-To that member of the junior Class who is destined to become the
Editor-in-Chief of the 1936 "Niagarian," we leave the outstanding journalistic ability
of jack Gellman, the demon reporter, but not the classic Roman UQ nose that adorns
his face. fSuch punishment is too much even for an underclassmanj
ARTICLE II.-To Frederick "Freddie" Leighton, voluminous, voluptuous, bouncing
boy of the junior Class, we bequeath two 12, seats at all athletic events so that he can
cheer all our teams to victory and celebrate after every Niagara goal without rudely
depositing on the floor, all those unfortunate spectators who happen to be seated in his
ARTICLE III.-To all members of the junior Class who have been told that they
are lacking in "grey matter," we bequeath about ZW of Ruth Gold's intelligence. She
won't miss it, but next year's Honor Roll will set a new record.
ARTICLE IV.-To Doris Scalzo, the blonde Venus of the Junior Class, we bequeath
one dozen bottles of peroxide "in case"-in spite of john Dillon's vehement protests.
ARTICLE V.-To Miss Hutson, our esteemed Librarian, we bequeath several good
novels to enhance our present supply of good fiction literature. Notably among these
are: a copy of "The Face on the Barroom Floor," or "The Mystery of the Missing
Cuspidor," by the popular author of olden days, a copy of "Risen from the Ranks,"
by Horatio Alger, jr., that eminent writer of classic fiction, and three copies of the
"Adventures of Daring Dan, the Detective."
We have always contended that what this country needs is not a good 5c cigar, but
a good old nickel novel.
ARTICLE VI.-To the faculty and ofiice personnel we leave the satisfaction of
knowing that we, after graduating from this institution, will no longer be able to drive
them to distraction.
We, the Senior Class of 1935, do hereby appoint as executors of this last will and
testament that All-American trio-Fraulein Niesz, Monsieur Brownell, and Senor Oliver.
In witness of the undersigned, we do hereunto set our hand to this document
on this twenty-fourth day of june, in the Year of Our Lord, Nineteen Hundred and
SENIOR CLASS OF 1935.
LOUIS SPECTOR, Clair Tertator.
We, the undersigned, testify that in our presence the said testator, Louis Spector,
affixed his name to this document, and in his presence and the presence of each other,
do subscribe our names as witnesses hereto:

HE "Niagarian" of 1935 was truly a student project in every
sense of the word. Every single cartoon or piece of art, all composition,
and even the intricate and difficult drawing of the Class Song, were done by
members of the "Niagarian" Staff.
The cost of printing was higher than the year before, which necessitated
the careful using of the decreased funds to the best advantageg the problem
of securing appropriate art to illustrate the unusual theme, "Peace," was
ever-presentg and the three weeks' delay in the taking of the group pictures
because of incessant rain, interfered greatly with the progress of the book.
These difficulties were finally overcome only by the excellent cooperation
and hard work of the staff members.
Mr. Abate's practical knowledge encouraged the staff when the prob-
lems seemed darkest and most insurmountable. Without Mr. Abate, the
quality of workmanship in the 1955 "Niagarian" would have been im-
possible. Mrs. Oliver, assistant adviser, also aided us greatly with her able
assistance and timely advice.

HE Senior Class of 1935 presented james Montgomery's
"Nothing but the Truth " on May 16 and 17.
This three-act comedy opens at a broker's office in New York. Mr.
Ralston is the senior partner of the firm, with Robert Bennett and Dick
Donnelly as junior associate members. During the first act we learn that
Mr. Ralston isn't particularly scrupulous as to the manner in which he sells
stocks, as long as he sells them. Dick admires his super-salesmanship, but
Robert does not. Instead, he criticizes his methods. During the discussion
as to whether one can carry on business without deception, Bob states that
he believes that he could tell the absolute truth for tweny-four hours.
Whereupon Mr. Ralston bets him ten thousand dollars that he cannot tell
the absolute truth for twenty-four hours.
The second act is set in the summer home of Mr. Ralston, where they
have taken Bob in order that they may watch him closely. Bob has already
begun to realize that he is involved in an extremely delicate situation. The
two partners have asked him every kind of question imaginable in order to
catch him, but regardless of the consequences, Bob has told the absolute
truth, whether he was giving his opinion on the hat that Ethel, the daughter
of one of the richest colonists, was wearing, or revealing his income, which,
we learn, he had before greatly exaggerated.
However, when his twenty-four hours are almost up and he has still
not been caught, his partners decide to frame him, because they feel that
he wouldn't risk losing his fiancee, Gwen. Bob almost gives in at this point,
but he manages to ask questions until the clock strikes four. His twenty-
four hours are ended, and he can keep himself from being a social outcast
by a few white lies.

ANDICAPPED by the loss of two players because of ineligibility, and by
the lack of experienced players, the basketball team failed, for the first time in many
years, to place in the St. Lawrence League. The St. Lawrence League was formerly
the R. P. I. League.
However, the team did defeat Trott and St. Mary's High School on successive
nights, to win the first Niagara Falls Interscholastic Basketball Tournament. For this
victory, the team received a beautiful trophy, donated by Mr. Stone, of the Board of
Eddie LaSota was the only player selected from the Red and Gray team on the
League All-Star team. Captain Quarantillo, Joe Morello, and Edison Brown also
deserve credit for their fine playing.

ATHLETIC ADVISORY CGMMITTEE
N its second year of organization, the Athletic Advisery committee has
already become an influential student group. With the aid of Mr. Strough, Miss
Phelps, and Mr. Parsons, the committee developed the year's athletic program success-
During the football season, the members took complete charge of the sale of
tickets to the games.
With the advent of the basketball-swimming season, the committee issued student
season tickets,'which enabled the students to attend all home games, both in basketball
and swimming, at a bargain price. The response reflected credit upon the student body.
Under the direction of the committee, the Wing Collar Day program was pre-
sented successfully. At the conclusion of the day's contests, a roller skating party was
held in the gym.

ECAUSE the gymnasium was not always available, fewer activi-
ties were scheduled in the intramural sports program. However, as in
former years, the athletic contests were very successful.
Basketball was the most popular sport. Twenty teams, under Coach
Szczerbacki's direction, engaged in a Winner-Loser consolation tourna-
ment. The "Whirlpools" were the winners, and the "Bars," the consolation
Fourteen teams entered the volleyball program. There were two leagues.
The 'lDelts,,' leader of league UB", defeated the l'Alley Oops" of league
"A" to become the champions.

IRLS' sports have assumed a definite place in the activities of
the school. Under the direction of Miss Amelia Phelps, badminton, tennis,
volleyball, soccer, archery, and baseball tournaments have been played
with a great deal of enthusiasm and success. Mrs. Lang supervised the after
school life-saving class, composed of twenty girls. This work, usually con-
fined to class periods, was thus completed in a shorter space of time.
The most exciting event of the year was the mixed doubles badminton
tourney. These matches were well attended and thoroughly enjoyed. The
final one, in which Grace Kenesky and Larry Miner defeated Avis Pitman
and Charles Caccamise, was especially interesting. These matches were so
successful that it was decided to play several games on Wing Collar Day.
The badminton entrants were divided into two groups-"AH and
Avis Pitman and Esther Sheperdson of the "A" League Qadvanced playersj
were the victors. Mary Bevilacqua and Palmina justiana were the winners
in the "B" League.
The tennis doubles brought Virginia Taylor and Ruth Yarnell to the
fore, when they defeated Avis Pitman and Esther Sheperdson in the finals.
The volleyball resulted in a three-way tie. These three teams were
captained by Mildred Miller, Lottie Kasprzak, and Mary Bevilacqua.
The Red Stripes, captained by Lottie Kasprzak, were the winners of the
soccer matches. Lottie also captured the handball title by defeating Ruth

ACH year it is recognized more and more that the School Coun-
cil is an important and intricate part of the school system. Through the co-
operation of the faculty and the student body, the School Council, under
the able leadership of Newcomb Prozeller, president, Bruce Duffett, vice-
presidentg Arthur Batts, secretary, Gerald Hewitt, treasurer, and Miss Emma
Hulen, faculty adviser, completed another successful business year.
The Council was fortunate in being able to arrrange several interesting
assembly programs. Dr. Luther Gable gave an enlightening talk on the
development and use of radium. Mr. Roger Baker, sports commentator,
delivered an instructive talk entitled l'Behind the Scenes of Radio." With
the aid of motion pictures, Mr. Howard Cleaves spoke on 'lWild Life."
Mr. William Finney related, with the aid of motion pictures, his personal
experiences among his Eskimo friends.

HE "Chronicle" Staff, under the supervision of Miss Ruth
Hauck, attained a great deal of success during this school year. It published
seven issues, including the Pigskin, Alumni, and Wing Collar Day issues.
The first issue, November thirteenth, proved a success by sponsoring a popu-
larity contest, which extended into the following issue. The second issue
was dedicated to the three hundredth anniversary of the establishment of the
Boston Latin School. With this issue, with no extra charge, was "The Pic,"
containing pictorial news and events from the Scholastic World. The Wing
Collar Day issue, printed with red ink on gray paper, was well received.
Jack Gellman, member of the staff, was elected president of the Niagara

ENGLISH AND AMERICAN LITERATURE
HIS is the first English and American Literature class to have its
picture in the year book. As all the members were not notified, eleven were
not present at the time the picture was taken.
This class combines the work, freedom, and social contact of both class
and club, studying the whole range of English and American literature,
colored by history, charting the centuries, reading the works of some of
the leading writers in each century, and reporting on them in Round Table
discussions, and, also, occasionally meeting socially to hear some speaker,
at an afternoon "party."
The members are usually lovers of books, and delight in finding that
the wealth of the centuries is at their command.
The class of 1934, with john Martin as president, introduced the first
reunion of this class. This was held at the jefferson Arms, at noon on
Saturday, june 16. Miss Frances Hickox, principal of North junior High
School, was the speaker, after which each of the fifty-five guests was called
upon to say something for himself. It was voted to establish this reunion
as a permanent annual gathering, and the time was set as the Saturday noon
directly preceding regenfs week. The ofiicers were:

URING the year 1934-55, the Niagara Falls High School For-
ensic Society accomplished a great deal toward its aim of improving and
teaching, and was aided greatly in reaching its goal by having for its faculty
adviser, the debate coach, Mark R. Bedford. He, together with both of his
debating teams, who were also members of the club, served to impart to
those inexperienced in public speaking, this proficiency.
The committee which planned the programs arranged such interesting
evenings as: a trip through the Defiance Paper Mill, swimming parties, gym
nights, and discussions of current topics concerning our school and the
world in general. One program was completely given over to a representa-
tive of the local American Salesbook Company, who, with the aid of
samples, talked to the group about the products of his company.
The membership of the organization was back to normal this year, a
total of twenty-one members having joined.

HIS year the Social Committee enjoyed a season of social and
financial success. A large number of students attended the two evening
dances and the many afternoon dances which the committee sponsored.
A new faculty adviser, Miss Dorothy Seippel, was appointed at the
beginning of the year. Members of the faculty acted as chaperones at the
Late in the fall, the Annual Autumn Prom was held. The gymnasium,
decorated in the customary corn-stalks and pumpkins, created a fine Hallo-
we'en atmosphere. Louis Preuster and his orchestra furnished the music.
After this dance, the tryouts for membership were voted upon and
seven new members were added to the committee.
On April 12, the second evening dance was held. The music for this
event was rendered by Larry Pease and his Indigoers, an orchestra which
proved very popular with those who attended.

HE Science Club this year was composed of twenty members
interested in all phases of science. Programs were arranged by the program
committee, under the chairmanship of Robert Read. At the meetings, the
members of the club spoke on various science topics of current interest.
Speakers from various factories in the city addressed the club.
A novel and different program was planned and presented for one of
the meetings, in the form Of a mock trial. Jack Corey presided as judge,
Robert Read acted as attorney for the defense, and Wilfred Crofts, as
attorney for the prosecution. The question was whether or not science
should take a ten years' vacation. The prosecution held that science should
be negelcted for ten years. The verdict was rendered in favor of the defense.
It declared that science is not to blame for war, famine, and other calami-
ties, and therefore should not be falsely accused.
The officers for this year were:

ASSCCIATED MUSIC CLUBS
HE Music Clubs of the school enjoyed an active year. Each
year students become more proficient and experienced, and this year espe-
cially proved a notable success.
The band, under the direction of Mr. McElWain, played at several
football and basketball games. A delightful spring concert was given, in
collaboration with the chorus. The band also took part in the Frontier
Music Festival, with a great deal of success.
Under the direction of Miss Clement, the chorus of one hundred and
seventy-five voices presented a Thanksgiving concert in conjunction with
the orchestra, a radio program on Christmas Eve, and a spring concert in
cooperation with the band. Six members of the chorus went to Pittsburgh
in March, to take part in a chorus of four hundred voices selected from
various schools in the eastern states.
The Little Symphony orchestra, composed of ten players, had a very
successful season. It played for various banquets, junior League plays, the
Community Chest, and the Senior Play.
The orchestra this year was composed of fifty-five players, under the
direction of Mr. Scotchmer. It presented its eleventh annual Thanksgiving
concert in cooperation with the chorus, and a spring concert, assisted by the
A Capella Chorus. The orchestra played during the Frontier Music Festival,
and also for the graduation exercises.
"The Pirates of Penzance," a light opera by Gilbert and Sullivan, was
presented by the Dramatic Club and the Associated Music Clubs. With the
accompaniment of a small selected orchestra and with the able assistance
of the stage crew, a delightful performance was given.
The club members enjoyed a Christmas party and a spring picnic.
Special mention must be made of the A Capella Chorus, which distin-
guished itself greatly this year.

The productions of the year included three assembly programs of one-act plays.
an operetta given in conjunction with the Associated Music Clubs, and a three-act play.
These plays were produced under the direction of Miss Helen M. Hill.
The first assembly program, given in the fall, was a one-act play by Moliere,
entitled, "A Doctor in Spite of Himself." This was a social satire of the seventeenth
century, mocking the doctors of the time. The play was done in modern costume,
with a symbolic setting by Katherine PaPuch. The cast was composed of Herbert
Dales, LaVerne Misener, LaRue Slack, Robert Read, Ruth Cimber, Blanche Delehant,
Thomas Stewart, and Royal Wenke.

"Why the Chimes Rang," a one-act play, was the presentation for the Christmas
assembly. The chimes in the cathedral had never rung because no one had ever laid
the proper gifts upon the altar. Two little boys, who had befriended an old lady,
watched, in a vision, the procession of fine ladies as they laid their gorgeous gifts on
the altar. It was not until one of the boys stepped forward and placed his few pennies
on the altar, that the chimes rang. Those who took part were: Thomas Stewart, Wesley
Peters, Charles Cooper, Elaine Cardamone, Stanley Terryberry, Calvin Goodrich, Char-
lotte Williams, Sara Tabak, Jack Corey, and Doris Harvey.
The final assembly program was a production of the well-known one-act play, "The
Valiant." This is the touching story of a young man sentenced to die, who refuses
to reveal his identity in order to shield his family. He convinces a girl who comes to
see him that he is not her brother, although, as he leaves the room to die, we are given
conclusive proof that he is her brother. The cast included Herbert Dales, Thomas
Stewart, Loretta Stanton, Robert Bayard, and Stanley Terryberry.
For the first evening performance, the Dramatic Club and the Associated Music
Clubs together presented Gilbert and Sullivan's operetta, "The ,Pirates of Penzance."
The second evening performance was a presentation of Noel Coward's 'Tll Leave
It to You," a three-act comedy. By telling the five children of his widowed sister
that he is wealthy and can live only three years longer, and by promising the bulk of
his estate to the one who becomes the most successful before the end of that time, Oliver

spurs his ycung relatives on to do great things, although they had been reared in luxury,
and, as a consequence, know very little about actual hard work. Oliver secretly encour-
ages each one. Unluckily, the children discover their uncle's trick. They find out that
he actually has no money, and treat him badly for a long time. They apologize just
before he receives a telegram announcing the discovery of gold on his property. Then
Oliver admits having sent the telegram himself.

6th-7th What! School already? Where'd my vacation go?
Registration day with all the fuss and bother it usual-
ly brings,Vplus the regular number of loose cats, dogs,
and freshies trying to register.
Hundreds of meek freshmen throng our lofty halls mak-
ing a poor attempt at hnding room 149 and others
equally well hidden.
Wish the old grads would get back to college so we
seniors can start feeling big.
The old book store reopens, having a usual morning
rush of business. It sure is a life saver to the forget-
ful around here.
Gosh, l'm president of our roll call. Student Council
met for rhe first time today with the following ofhcers:

The old grind is interrupted by our first real assembly,
which took the form of a pep meeting to give the
football team a send-ofi for the first game of the
season this week.
Our initial football game or, rather, team looked good.
We did everything but kill our famous alumni. Final
score stood: High School441, Alumni!0.
Was Niagara's face red today? Tom Szczerbacki told
us what was what. In other words what he thought
of those who didn't support school athletics. No
school spirit, if you get what I mean.
Niagara vs. Tonawanda and Tom's speech worked
'Cause a big crowd turned out -only to see our team
go down in defeat to the twin city boys. Score:
School looks like a stock exchange as World Series
games' scores are posted. Thanks, Mr. Strough. How
'much did you lose on the Tigers?
First spell cast over Niagara. Five weeks' marks close.
With the tests and all, aren't we having fun?
Too bad there aren't more fellows like Chris Columbus
who would go out of his way to give us a holiday.
North Tonawanda arrives by plane, foor, horse,
'ibumsj' and roller skates to wreck Niagara. Result:
Ah, woe is me, for Niagara is wrecked to the tune
of 13-26 score.
'Tragedy in the form of report cards.
First Senior assembly today. Did you notice the cer-
tain important look of the Seniors today? It's all
right, Greenies, you'll be Seniors some day moi
The Dramatic Club presented "A Doctor in Spite of
Himself," and made us forget we were in school-
for a while, anyway.
Dr. Luther Gabel explained to us perfectly all that we
might be able to understand about radium. I hope
that the Student Council continues to bring such tal-
ented men to N. F. H. S.

in Dunkirk's own field. Niagara defeated their op-
