A... an I w If '--f ' ll--ll f EX LIBFQIS JMQMSLQ fa k956' I Y ?- THREE HUNDREDTH ANNIVERSARY PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS 16354935 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 States. Education, we salute ou! Ma our trium hs within the next three Y Y Y P hundred years carry you farther on your way toward permanent world peace.

Walsh We, the Senior Class of 1935, dedicate this "Niagarianf' .msklilrelxgwgl LEED sf we FOREWORD 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! PAGE THREE 'gif K ,Q Q L esililreligel Qilfelfh 'J 14' IN MEMORIAM 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." ABRAHAM LESHNER 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 Greetings: 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 guidance. Q Very sincerely, JAMES F. TAYLOR. klnlrflkwfl Q IPI-P lf' 44' .. klulvflk-wfl Q WEP if 44' .

'The seeds of war are chiefly sown by those people whose wisdom and moderation ought to compose and assuage the im' petuous passions for the people .... 'There is scarcely any peace so unjust, but it is preferable, upon the whole, to the justest war ....

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.

N PAGE FORTY-NINE K- if B Ii IVEKQEI W- lah 'J 44' 1 'iii K QQ L 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 life. 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 in life. 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. JACK WELCH, Prerident of Clary of 1935. PAGE Fiery N r . - .E Tkliligllbagvg I LEED sf 44' CLASS HISTCDRY 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 soon after. 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! N PAGE FIFTY-ONE ,il , D ' Ii IVEIKEEI EPS 41 fi' Ll! CLASS HISTURY-Continued We organized in March.

R UTH GOLD 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, RUTH GOLD, Clan Hiftorian. PAGE FIFTY-Two N -1 Q fkIiIrfILQEI Qflfalfb Q! 14' rv CLASS STATISTICS 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 abilities.

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 'Gold Standard'.,' 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. PAGE FIFTY-FOUR N .1 al i blilrelkiel Qflfglsh if cafe' CLASS PROPHECY-Continued 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 N PAGE FIFTY-FIVE 5- 1.E klilr5IiQEI LEED U "K CLASS PRGPHECY-Continued 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 seated. 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 Beach. 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 York Times.

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. NEWCOMB PROZELLER, Mantle Omfor. N PAGE FIFTY-SEVEN - Q 'Q IEIEILQE I LEED eff 44' 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 class. 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. BRUCE DUFFETT, fwzior Reprerefzlalirfe.

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 vicinity. 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 Thirty-live. SENIOR CLASS OF 1935.

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.

OLIVER N PAGE SIXTY-ONE ndsskli lrelxgqe I Qilglfb Q J SENIQR PLAY 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. PAGE SIXTY-TWO N L- Lsimlilfnalgel LEED 41 44' I The Left to right: A. HINCKLEY, L. WITT, H.

BASKETBALL 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 Education. 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- fully. 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.

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 winners. 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. Only doubles were played in the handball tournament. Maurice St. Denny and Edison Brown were the victors, in a group of 104 other com- petitors. Wrestling had a large number of entrants.

There were many close and well-played matches. N PAGE EIGHTY-THREE Q QQSEIEIVEIKQEEI Qflaglfi 'e"'4'e' - GIRLS' SPCRTS 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 Prindle. PAGE EIGHTY-FOUR N 4 lilrglsgl new K SPORT HEADL MES OF X955 NUC x '11, I . x X 'K cwag 2 . ,jf f ,f Q f me C X I 677715 Efsf Fox?

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. PAGE EIGHTY-EIGHT N up E efslilfgltggl new if ff' As usual, the Council this year sponsored the Christmas Basket Cam- paign, which included the distributing of food, clothing, and money to needy families.

ENGLISH AND AMERICAN LITERATURE CLASS 19344935 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.

Membership is limited to twenty-five, who are chosen from a list of those Whqfare recommended by their French teachers as capable students. At present there are twenty-two active members, eighteen of whom were initiated into the club in the spring and fall of the year. The meetings were well organized by Mary Beth Jones, the social president. During the last four meetings a contest was carried on, the club being divided into four groups with captains, each group presenting a program on different weeks. Prizes were presented for the best program and best individual work. The officers for 1934-35 were: Prefidem' .................................... ...........

The question debated was, Resolved: "That the Federal Government should adopt the policy of equalizing educational opportunity throughout the nation by means of annual grants to the several states for public elemen- tary and secondary education." The personnel of the two Niagara teams follows: Affirmative-Robert Newton, Benjamin Gold, james Bowman, negative-jack A. Gellman, Charles Cooper, Louis Spector. The schools participating in debates cover a large area. Their names are: Lockport, Amherst, Lackawanna, Tonawanda, in league debates, Niagara University freshman, Hornell, Kenmore, Amherst, East High of Erie, Penn., North East Penn. In the league debates a critic judge rendered the decision and commented on the debate, giving the reasons for his decision. In each of the non-league debates the winning team was decided upon by three judges, The members of the teams are to be complimented for the creditable manner in which they represented their Alma Mater in forensic art. For their participation, each member received a major school letter. Mark R. Bedford, who coached the teams, deserves special recognition for his unusually fine work.

FORENSIC SOCIETY 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.

SOCIAL COMMITTEE 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 dances. 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.

The members are composed of boys who are keenly interested in developing a better understanding of themselves and the world. The meetings were divided into two parts. During the first half busi- ness was discussed, while the second half was devoted to educational pro- grams, under the direction of Mark R. Bedford, faculty adviser. Many interesting speakers addressed the club, among whom were Mr. Pollard and Mr. Munsee, who spoke on hygiene, and Mr. Wilbur, a former Yale football player, who informally discussed football and college. The club held a dinner meeting, at which the LaSalle and Lewiston chapters were guests. Dr. Rooker was the principal speaker. The officers were: Premienz ............ .....

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: Prefzdent .........

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. N PAGE NINETY-NINE K.

THOMAS STEWART 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.

DRAMATICS-Continued "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 N PAGE ONE HUNDRED FIVE 1ii.EikIiIreIiQEI LEED 'J 4' Left to right, first row: E.

'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 we hope. 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.

Niagara defeated their op- ponents to the tune of 13-6. Another vacation. Armistice day and we all remem- ber, too. "After the war, the music." Well, the quotation is something like that. Anyway, report cards came out today 110 weeksJ 'with the usual results. Niagara vs. Lockport with the Red and Gray coming through once more. 35-6 was the score and another victory for N. F. H. S. Last day of Book Week, and we all took our old books to the library for the next fellow to read. "Dark Horse" presented to Mr. Strough and "The Bone of Contention" presentel to Mr. Gregory.

Isn't he just a wonderful Uncle? Those who didn't see this play missed something. Falls debaters beat Amherst today. This morning endured severe torture for ten or eleven minutes while endeavoring to give my Senior speech. Well, there is one conclusion-it was as good as Mosy's anyway. Another victory! Our affirmative team defeated Am- herst this time. A few dopes around school were seen with spy glasses pouring over the new issue of the Chronicle. They tell me that the spy glasses are a new invention in order to read between the lines of the column called "Tongue Waggins". Wish I had one. Tonight the Parsonmen were defeated by the Twin City Five, 42-22. Report cards-five weeks' marks. Need I say more? Our debaters scored a double victory in a dual debate with Kenmore even if it was the 13th. Howard Cleaves, naturalist, spoke to the N. F. H. S. today and illustrated his talk with motion pictures and many slides. What a funny collection of scare- crows he had! And how I amused him when I thought a rabbit was traveling south when it was going north. N. F. basketball team took a game tonight, the first in quite a few. Score 31-20. Maybe this is a late rally, since this is the next to the last game. I am beginning to wonder when they will finish painting the school, because I am tired of having someone tell me I have paint on my clothes again. The hrst day of spring, tra la! Why don't they give us a day off to admire the tender crocus buds? Niagara's last league basketball game. Lost to Trott by a score of 50-22. Our band and chorus gave their annual spring concert. Mr. Mclilwain mislaid his music and all the selections were conducted without any music, but who would have guessed it?

Our negative traveled to North East, with a hard-earned win. It closed a in which our debaters hnished second in the league. For the hrst time in many years Mr. Strough called an afternoon assembly and what a mix-up! Mr. Strough read the numbers of the rooms supposed to be present and everybody left, only to be sent back again. But it was worth all this fuss to be able to see the Dramatic Club production, "The Valiant." The clinic began to fill up suddenly with many students struck by a malady which visits us every spring. I wonder! Richard Finnie, an explorer, showed us his own moving pictures of the Coppermine Eskimos. This was the last of the programs arranged by the School Council. Each has been better than the preceding one. Larry Pease provided the hot rhythm for our annual Spring Prom. Have I got sore feet? With a spiteful shove, I laid my book aside once more to enjoy the visit of the Easter Bunny. I did what anyone else would on the first morning of a vacation. Z-Z-Z-Z-Z! boy, did I do some fancy stepping in school all day in order to have my part of the Niagarian done. Well, school again. This rain suits my disposition perfectly.

With the exception of a few pictures to be developed, all is in readiness for the engraver to begin work. The Niagarian is to be printed and placed on the market, not doomed to crash. Today the Senior Class presented in assembly a few scenes of their play called 4'Nothing But the Truth." I am sure going to be there on the 16th or the 17th for certain. Ofiicers of the School Council for '55-'36 were elected today. May they have the best of luck posible for the coming year. They are: President ...... Bruce Durfett Vice-President . . . . Edison Willers Secretary . . . Donald Urquhart Treasurer ...... Irene Weglicki Final production of senior play after weeks of super- vision by Miss Hill tonight. This was the finest Senior play ever given in N. F. H. S., in my opinion. Well, what if I am a Senior? What a man! What a build! Who do I mean? Why George VanBibber, coach of football at U. of B., who was presented to us by the Niagarian Staff. Why can't we have more assembly programs like these lately? Whoo-oh, are we going to pass the number of Niagarians sold last year? And how! Why if we keep on this way we shall have to order 500 more copies of the yearbook. Niagarian assembly in order to give the students an idea of the contents of the 1935 Niagarian. The sales are increasing by the 50's and 100's each day. Slight vacation from the usual grind of work, for my- self and several others. Took a day off to reverse the memory of those brave men "gone west". just think-the last day of May! Well, it won't be long now. The Niagarian Staff is working as hard as ever in order to sell the required number of books, I think they appreciate the help given them by the student body immensely. JUNE Diary: Only 10 more class days left until the deciding factor of the year begins to tax my knowledge. "Have you bought a Niagarian yet?" This is the pass word around school these days. Boy! l-low I suffered during that history test today. I hope I can at least pull down an eighty-five and get my S0 per cent. ruling. Today I received my report card. It was fair. I lacked my 80 per cent. in German, which worries me some. Niagarian sales are going strong, but if Art. Batts expects to reach 900 in the number sold, it will be a miracle and 'I believe in Miracles." fGood one, eh?y Many long faces appeared before me today as regents began with a bang. There will be plenty who will do the same regents paper in class next january in preparation for the january regents. Well, the agony of regents are over for me and am I glad! Oh, Boy! and how, Hel I know the teachers are tooyespecially one! I bet Miss Seippel can't guess how I passed that history regents like I did, any more than I can, myself. Tonight I became one of the many other 420 Seniors to sit on the stage for Class Night. Did I dance or did I dance? I'll say so. First Commencement, june 25. What a cute ribbon my diploma was tied with. There goes Mrs. Strough's new ribbon, Never mind, there are plenty more where that came from. Same thing as last night, only tonight I sat in the audience in comfort, while the rest of the graduates "suffered in silence". 10" A 4 Q L A -A AQQDIEIEILEEEI QZLQIEP 41 44' GUESS WHO?
