The A u akeuzug
About the first week 1n September strange noxses could be heard 1ssu1n from th
blg stone bulldlng on the corner of Pme and Portage It wasn t the ghosts of the
gra uates wanderlng but the host of workers preparlng Hlgh School for the ram
pages of a new arlstocracy the Semors of 42
September 5th a sea of smrlmg faces could be seen mrllmg around the doorway
Everyone and everything was ready for a hard years work except about 1500 stu
dents and 60 teachers who were st1ll dreammg about that beautlful summer
Fi , ,
From our lofty heights, we Seniors delgned to notice the bright and Smlllng new
faces ln our mldst Their halr was combed and then' ties were stralght Behold the
Frosh, wllled to our gentle care by North umor Under our sheltering wmgs they
soon came to know where room 150 was and why the fourth floor has two parts
No sooner had the school year started, with xts perslstent demands for study, than
orgamzatxons began to function once agam Fraternmes, Sorormes, H1 Y s, the ten
ms, golf, and football teams all began mtegratmg the Frosh IIIEO the life of High
School Many Frosh emerged as leaders, and by the time for class orgamzatlon,
Frank Vaccarella was chosen as president, Bob Russell as Vlce President, Mary Lou
Hoff as secretary, and Albert Chllle as treasurer of the class of 44

On October 10 North Tonawanda beat us 14 7 ust to keep the score even
our team then upset Lockport 13 6 That was a muddy ramy day It was an out
of town game and our band went along to provrde a llttle moral support The
muslclans were tamed out but the game went on just the same The Lockport
boys came out all dressed 1n whlte so they really got messed up
The rest of the season didnt go so well We bowed to Kenmore Tonawanda
and as a final blow to Trott So the football season ended, none too successfully
lf would seem from the scores but st1ll those who go to the games enjoy them
Coach Crxpe IS our football mentor He had lots of Seniors on h1s team th1s year,
some of whom may be back for post graduate work The captam was Les Tarc
zynskl our well l1ked bashful center oe Bulack was the runnmg dodgmg back
who added a lot of spectacular runs to the varlous games Then there was Bob
Scholtz wlth h1s green socks and Dud DCSIIHO who dld the passrng These and
all the others were our 41 football squad They all had to work together and whrle
they d1dn t w1n many games we strll appreclate them At least they beat LaSalle

Among our worthy classmates are an unfortunate few who have been doomed
to study Latln Admlttedly there are some who llke the nonsense but alas SCICHCC
has as yet found no cure In the meantlme these unhappy souls have managed to
elce a llttle pleasure out of the grlm reallty by pretending that they are back 1n the
League Thexr programs held ln the aud1tor1um lncluded everything from llvmg
statues to a burlesque of Caesars death
About this t1me m November the club was orgamzed and electlons were held
MISS Gratrxck was the advlser th1s year and one of the Hrst meetmgs under her
guldance was the formal 1nstallat1on of officers The Senate sat on stage wrapped
up ln sheets for togas and solemnly llstened to Marjorxe Krausman mtone a prayer
to the gods for an omen of a successful year It turned out to be just that so ap
patently the sp1r1ts were w1th them
days of Caesar. All those who take Latin are formed into the Junior Classical

Whrle the club dxdnt present any play thxs year, several socxal functxons were
held A slexghrlde was planned for the Fall Comphcatlons set m and the party
ended up at the Ray Ott, but stlll everyone had a good txme
Several mterestmg speakers addressed the club for some of the programs The
Forens1c Soclety meets every other Tuesday evenmg Thxs year about half of the

THE MON OCLE
On the lower end of the journalxstxc scale IS
the lnfamous Monocle There lf ls, a mere piece
of fiber board, hung m the cafeterla Thereon are
posted notlces, cartoons, ed1tor1als, and gosslp It
grew to be the bane of the Hlgh School as the
unwary wolves saw their mlsdeeds IH prmt The
Eye the g0SSlP column, saw too much, but the
students, llke drug addlcts, scurrled back for more
And so the Monocle wended lts merry way
through the year, xn and out of favor, tw1xt the
Charybdxs of censorshxp and the Scylla of slack
emng mterest It came out safely and surv1ved,
an lgnoble but fond memory of our semor year

school became aware of the exlstence of them
Charlre rs the boy who pulls the curtalns wh1le
Domxnrck and Bernard help get the stage ready
Ed Rhoney usually manages the lxghts Of course
the boys work terribly hard we ve always been
One group that has truly been affected by the
war IS the Projectron Stall: Thls group of about
elght boys under Mr Fowler though smaller than
m prevrous years has helped 1n over a dozen de
fense meetxngs It has been an act1ve year for the
fellows for they have also helped 1n the Clare Tree
Major plays and have shown pictures for Engllsh
Those were busy days between Thanlcsgxvmg and Chrlstmas Pearl Harbor had aroused the natlon we
were a country at war But our school affarrs went on w1th hardly a thought of the days and years to come
A journalrsm conference was held ln Buffalo some of the Senior English classes had a party at the Plan
tatxon the I-I1Ys held their annual banquet at the Y and on the last day of school a Chrlstmas
pageant was presented ln Assembly
So school closed and the season of mlstletoe and holly began While the outside world prepared to
destroy itself our own little lrves were happy It was Chrlstmas txme and snow was framing the trees
There was war ln the world but peace ln our hearts

Back to school and back to work for regents were only two weeks away The
teachers drove and the students slaved all preparmg for the ordeal to come One
brlght moment appeared however and that was the Nmgarzan Ice Carnival on
anuary 16th The blggest crowd IH years came to the gym that night to dance
toss pennles and buy ICC cream It was a combtnanon fxremen s ball and Coney
Island Everyone had fun and the Nzagarzan raked xn the profits
That was only the calm before the storm Regents followed the next week Of
course thls was a vacatlon for many especlally the underclassmen but for others If
meant exams day after day
Toward the end of the week reglstratlon started 1n the school gym It was far
less compllcated than the one 1n the Fall because all of us knew what we were golng
to take and whom we wanted to teach lf A few new courses were started a bunch
of gurls qulte unexpectedly joined the Personal Reg class to learn as Betty Noble
hopefully announced how to comb your hair and when to say No
The second lap started the followmg Monday Sprlng term 1942 the best was
yet to come

Fourth floor-iron steps to the roof-secret compartments in desks-Varga cal-
endar-ever changing crowds of people-small dark room-setting for either a
murder or a yearbook, or both. Above the door to this den of iniquity is inscribed
the same legend that is written above the entrance to I-Iell-"Abandon hope, all ye
who enter here." How truly the words do prophesy, for this is the N iagarian room.
In those sheltering walls, the Ice Carnival was planned and executed, the early
February blitzkrieg sales campaign that broke all records was launchedg the movie
that undermined the daily class routine was ordered. From within that room photog-
raphers cameg around that table adviser and engraver consulted, and on that roof
the editors played handball and threw parties.
Many there were who sacrificed much for the sake of the yearbook. Besides those
whose pictures you see, there were Rose Mary Lynch, Catherine Hailey, Bill Hallet,
Bill Frank, Charlotte Miller, Janet Abbey, Regina Caldrone, Marjorie Leigh, May
Johnstone-dozens of others. We love them all, and to all of them goes any credit
and any praise that the '42 N iagarian may have earned.

Rumors and plans for Semor Play had been in the malcmg even before m1d year exams
After the new term had started work was begun rn earnest Supposedly, tryouts were held
early enough to leave plenty of txme for rehearsals but as always happens there was Just
about t1me to whlp It mto shape before the 19th Vlvacrous Lady was the name of the
play, and Beth Long was our VIVACIOUS herome Ed Baker aged some forty years put on
a monocle and turned mto a college presxdenr wrth May ohnstone as hrs lovmg but tem
peramental wxfe Chi? Swartz, wlthout too much actxng became a rather t1m1d professor
although love and a b1t of excellerator arranged everythmg mcely, 1n more ways than one
The only people not happy towards the end of the play were Kexth and Helen, played by
Al Crpperman and Catherme Halley, but even these partner rn m1sery patched thrngs up
and all was serene
So the curtam came down on the 42 Semor Play whrle Bob Crewe as Culpepper yelled
Down wnth the flowers' The crowd was large and the play was good Afterwards the
cast presented Mrs Threle wlth a bouquet of roses As the long suffermg drrector she
deserved them and more, for all those hours of rehearsals

When the opera was over and finished, elections were held for next year's student
council officers. Theoretically the student council is the governing body of the
school, and while we're proud that we have this machinery for local democracy,
we're afraid that it is not nearly so powerful as it could or should be. However some
progress was made this year when the Activities, Committee was set up. The ex-
pressed purpose of the committee is to arrange activities of the various organizations
so that they will not conflict. As time goes on, the system ought to become more
The Council ventured to change the assembly opening and under the leadership
of ohn Baum planned an Impresslve ceremonial begmnlng
Another banner event was the arrival and initiation of our new sound projector
After years of dreaming and schemlng, we finally managed to buy it
Then there were three assembly programs sponsored by Student Council Hug
gerhite, the archer, Payne, the page hoy and Shearer, the modern dancer, all added
entertainment to our school day

Senior Day was May 15, and wrth that grand and glorrous day over, the Semors pre
pared to leave Nxagara Hrgh Exams and graduatxon were only a few short weeks away
However, all wlll not be lost when the Senrors go Somehow, the school always manages
to struggle on
We leave to follow rn our footsteps the class of 43 Ir would be uncalled for to say
that thls class consists of dreamer-s, wolves, and adolescents, and we wrll not mentron the fact
Of course they arent an unusually bad unxor class, by any means In fact they have
members on practrcally every team and orgamzatron ln school and some of the young ladles
are queens rn their own rlght rn splte of bemg only unxors
When Fall comes round agam these chrldren whose pictures you see on the followmg
pages, will be hrgh and lofty Senxors May they wear well that mantle that the class of 42
places on thelr shoulders

We elected to lead us through that first year three outstandrng members of our
class These were Robert Arthurs Presrdent Danrel Proctor Vice Presrdent and
Al1C6 Nolan Secretary Treasurer
Finally wrth une upon us and regents loomlng ahead we sat home mghts and
crammed emerglng trxumphantly from our ordeal as could It be true unlors

SENIOR CLASS STATISTICS
Ibfs Ullfzccoznliable Class
I belxeve that the mam reason for my belllg elected as semor class SIQUSIICISII was
my ability to count my fTI'lg6I'S over and over agaln and repeatedly get a total of II
Therefore II was my duty to fllld the followmg Stat1StlCS wh1ch are about the fifty
fourth graduatmg class of Nlagara Falls I-Ilgh School
In the 42 class the 511 Semors conslsted of 250 boys and the rest well they re
glrls 32l ID number The average Semor completed lus course ln 4 years vwhlle a
very few school lovers subscrlbed to the 5 year plan
By une about 150 Senxors or 26' of the semor class w1ll have made plans
The average of 30 packs of paper used by the students throughout the year can
be separated Into 685 200 sheets of Wflflllg paper Th1s IS a total of 17 130 packs
used by the whole senxor class If each sheet holds about 400 words then these 17
130 packs of paper could have had 274 080 000 words wrltten on them
Upon meetlng a group of boys and asklng them a few questlons I learned the
following facts Smce last September the average Semor boy has bought 3 palrs
of pants at 6 50 a palr Th1s means that a total of 750 QHIFS of pants seat pohshers
to you were bought at a total of 4875 In hgurmg that a plece of cloth about
4 square feet was used for each palr of pants then 3000 square feet of cloth were
Throughout the latter part of the year defense stamps were bemg sold to the
students SINCE the sale IS stlll gomv on I drew my own concluslons If each Senlor
bought enough defense stamps to trade for an I8 75 bond enough money would be
ralsed to buy I 6 of an Alracobra
Whlle walkmg 1n the halls from class to class I see gxrls carrymg a large number
of books Stopplng to count some I have found that the boys carry only 1 3 the
number of books that the glrls do That proves exther that the boys know more
or that the gxrls know more Or II mxght prove that the boys are smarter by bemg
dumber or then and agam and so on far 1nto the mght

I was a fallurel I had agreed to wr1te a prophecy for my classmates from the
N1agara Falls I-Ilgh School but I could not foretell future events so how was I
to accomphsh my task? In desperat1on I brewed a potent dr1nk of herb julces and
slumped to the Hoor xn a deep sleep
Soon I was wandering through the once famlhar streets of Ntagara Falls th1rty
years later As I strolled along Pme Avenue and 1nto my Alma Mater I soon dl
covered that th1s m1ghty mst1tut1on of learnmg had become th ofhce of a d1ctator
Wl1at dlctator I thought to myself I was told that xt was Clem DeFel1ce and If
was not long before I dxscovered that the promxslng tra1ts of my classmates had
been suppressed The class of 42 was broken and submlsslve under the cruel ruth
less rule of thelr tron handed leader
Clem however was exceedlngly klnd to me and offered to dr1ve me around
h1s tCC1111l1g metropohs Before startmg he had to fill up h1s tank wlth gasohnc
that l1qu1d wh1ch cars consume m such enormous quantltres Nevertheless fhlS was
no hardsh1p because he had been hoard1ng the I13I101'1 s supply for th1rty years A
last we were off and r1d1ng on rubber t1res for Clem had also been conservmg
B111 Sprllane was st ndmg on the corner of Thlrd and Falls Streets attemptmg
1n va1n to sell some funny books wh1ch he had wrltten
Among the thousands of people waltlng in front of the Strand Theater to see
that great actress Beth Long play m XIIVHCIOUS Lady or Fun after F1fty
WlllCll has been on Falls Street for endless seasons were those regular movxe goers
Beverly Ftelds Ida Ella and Gwen Charles I-Ixdmg behmd an enormous stgn
readmg Palumbo s Popcorn for the People was Paul Palumbo and h1s cart
Standmg 1n the mxddle of the street 1gnorant of the HCIIVIIIES around them ohn
Demas 1llustr1ous braln surgeon and h1s assistants Paul Reld and Doc Arthurs
were havmg a serrous conference
Veterlnarlan Dave Gleason was crawl1ng on all fours barkmg whlle attemptmg
to attract customers The streets as usual were swarmxng w1th plckpockets and
hoboes most of whom I recognlzed as former classmates but feel too benevolent
After watch1ng I-Ielen Gold sketch the Falls for several mxnutes Clem and I
ate a del1c1ous lunch wh1ch had been packed by h1s head d1et1t1an Marjorle Kraus
mann As we relaxed Rlchard Dunkm passed us wlth h1s nose 111 the a1r 1n a splck
and span umform maklng h1S da1ly IIISDCCEIOII tour atop the garbage truck
Wlmxlc passmg the Nlagara Room of the Indlan Hotel Clem and I declded to
get a glass of m1lL Professor Crewe and h1s famous dance band were featured
