Taylor, Superintendent of Schools, Niagara Falls, New York, the educator who has developed our local system of education to its present standingg ' the administrator who has guided our schools through many adverse circumstances and trying wartimesp the scholar who is responsible for making our school days a cherished memoryg the friend ol' many generations of students, wc, the class of 1945, respectfully dedicate our senior book with the hope that he may enjoy many happy years of well-deserved rest after his long and most successful public service. IPD ID IEMV 10 IIQ ID "ALL the world's a stage and all the men and women merely players," Shakespeare observed in the early seventeenth century. Things have changed a little since then, and we, the class of 1945, find that our world is a motion picture. 1"fa.r1'1back.r of 1945 is the movie of our high school days. It is the best movie we have ever attended, perhaps because we starred in it, or perhaps because its plot is happier than that of other movies which we shall make later. It was made by an all-star cast of seniors, with hundreds of supporting juniors and sophomores, and under the capable direction of a principal, vice-principal, and faculty to whom we shall always be grateful. The setting of our picture, of course, is Niagara Falls High School, erected before our time but decorated partly by our art staff and supervised by our student council. There are many sub-plots in our movie, but essentially it is the story of a girl in a baggy sweater, a plaited skirt, bobby sox, and bangle bracelets, and a boy with a brush cut, a tent-sized plaid shirt, and cuffless trousers, who find happiness in a world of laughter, music, sports, milk shakes, and even . . . a little learning. The houselights dim and the curtain rises. VVe are transported back to our high school days as we see with renewed joy and lasting delight Fla.rhbacfQ.r of 1945. --21 6 In-' SIEWUFIINIE E ! NIAGARA FALLS HIGH SCHOOL Commanding an imposing position in the heart of downtown Niagara Falls, stands a building which is the scene of our movie, Flarrhbacler of 1945. This building has been the scene of tragedy, sorrow, and happiness, but for us its cheerful hours have far outnumberechany other moments. Quiet at times, and at times often bursting with noise of confusion, the halls of "Old Niagara" are filled with the memories of its former students. For those of us still present and for those of us who will graduate, Niagara Falls High School will remain a treasured interlude in the symphony of life. --21 7 Izcf' AILMAX MKAUFIEID WE love thee, deer old High With your halls of leeeeihg ee-ehd.

The good habits which you have formed and the things which you have learned to do will be of inestimable value to you in the years ahead. Regardless of where you may go or what you may do, be alert for opportunities to continue your education. May your achievements be exceeded only by your desire to achieve. To THE CLASS or 1945- Graduation seems to you, no doubt, to be the and of a long and wearisome journey. In reality it is the com- mencement of a longer and Still more clifficult venture, one that will demand greater effort and will offer corres- pondingly richer rewards to those who strive for achievement. While some of you will seek further education in the immediate future, and others will spend some time in military Service, Sooner or later all ofyou will take the full responsibilities of Self-directed citizenship. You will establish homes and build careers, participate in community improvement and assume positions of influence and leadership. AS the future ,Years unfold, may you always hold true to the best ideals you learned during these high school days. t l I I XVILLIAM F. IACK jc I"1'L'e-l'1'z'11cz'pal --21 10 la-- B.

It seems but yesterday that we were bewildered sophomores scrambling up the steps in the Fall of '42, Somehow we managed to survive that first year and went on to our junior year which found us greatly enlarged with addition of classmates from Gaskill and South lunior. Kenneth Pearl was elected Vice-President of the Student Council. The lunior plays, "Out of the Blue," "The Valiant" and "Idlings of the Kings," with Carl Foss and lack Carleton, were superl ' Before we realized it, we were high and mighty seniors. Dick Clancy was elected President ofthe Student Council. When he graduated in Ianuary, our famed basketball star, Paul Costanzo, took over. We'll never forget the im- pressive assembly the lanuary graduates presented. The president was Canter- bury Coleman. His speech left most of us with few dry eyes. A big event was the crowning of Bill WVilson and loey Vllells as King and Queen of Niagara at the yearbook assembly. The Senior play "Clarence" was a huge success under the capable direction of Frank Baggallay. Carl Foss and lean Wright' were smooth in the leads. In March we organized the Senior class. Hans Popp is advisor. The otlicers are: President, Bill NVilsong Vice-President, Iulia Cabello, Secretary, Bob Quarantillog Treasurer, Ronald Zito. Class day othcers are: Statistician, Nlartha Iohnstoneg Testator, Lois Smithg Historian, Carole Kulickg Prophet, Frieda Kramer, Poet, Isabell Garry. The class colors are sky bluefand gold- and the class flower is the yellow rose. The motto is the inspiring: "Success is made, not given." As our Senior year draws to a close, all of us hold fond memories of our high school days. No matter what the future holds for us, we can face the world confident that the knowledge gained here will be an asset to us, wherever we are. CAROLE KULICK. Q-:AI 47 Ile-- 'C ILASS ID IDD ID II'I IBEW HE sun poured its rays through the study hall window on to the white pages of my algebra book. The imaginary numbers before me swam as my heavy eyelids tluttered. But suddenly the rude bell woke me. I raised my head from the book. The pages were now yellow-as if from age. The teacher walked briskly toward me. It wasn't the same one, she looked like Vincenette Rangatore. "I'm sorry but youlll have to get a pass from the office, ma'am" she said. As I was walking down the corridor toward the office, I saw Glen Snyder. I called to him. He stopped. "Look, lady, my name's Bill. My a'aa".r name is Glen." A bit confused now, I stepped into the office, where I saw Rose Sonsiadlo sitting behind the secretary's desk. I asked her jokingly, "Are you the secretary?" She replied with a very formal "yes," and showed no sign of recognizing me. From where I stood I could see a gray-haired Paul Costanzo sitting behind the principal's desk. Dazedly I walked out of the office, only to bump into Beverly McBride. I guessed she was a member of the faculty. Sorrowful strains of a chorus flowed from the auditorium. There was Ethel Olander shaking a stick at twenty potential singers. In the gymnasium, I saw Eleanor Princevalle teaching a group of girls how to acquire a drape shape. A .drummer, remarkably resembling Vincent Brierley, was assisting her. He was beating out the one, two, three bend on his drum. Assistant instructor, Rose Maglio, was just scolding him for not paying attention to his instrument and paying too much attention to the girls. Tiring of the intellectual atmosphere in the school, I walked out into the fresh air. But everything looked different here, too. As I walked down the street, I noticed that a new building had arisen where the Palace Laundry used to stand. I soon discovered that this was the NIcKelvey-Bowen Hospital for the feeble-minded. Upon entering the hospital I found Paul Greiner, as chief surgeon-not as a patient. In the infirmary, technician Faye Rosenberg was trying to relieve Ronald Zito of a few corpuscles. Among the angels of mercy trodding the plastic floors were Loda Passer, Carol Green, Vincenette Ullo, and Gula Ann Pendleton. Unfortunately the patients were nowhere in. sight. Across from the hospital was the Brown and Brewer Brewery. The happy owners, Pete and Bill, were sitting on a keg, partaking of their thirst-quenching .if 48 pc.. 'I2 ILASS ID IDU ID II'I IEICV product. Not far away was the Rohrer radio station. As I walked in, I saw Betty at the controls and announcer lerry hlann giving out with a commercial. It went something like this: "Little boys who go to school, You don't want to be a fool. Eat Exler's Cornflakes and you'll be Like that big, strong man, Less Finney." Being very confused but very hungry, I entered the Moraca Spaghetti House, whose blue plate special was one meatball. Singing there as a spaghetti house duet was tenor, Gary Manuse, and baritone, Louis Santelli. From there I went to the "Thrilling Theater" owned and operated jointly by Bud Snyder and Iimmy VVarren. In front of the theater was spread a huge picture of Carl Foss and underneath it in huge letters was CFIVIBL. Reading on, I found that he was favorably compared to the late Van Iohnson. The picture, in which he was starring, was entitled "The Sleepy-eyed Boy" and co-starred lean Wright. The double feature, Hlailbird Iackief' featured the great lack Carlton in the title role. A few yards away a bright neon sign glowed, "The Putty Girls." I stepped closer and found myself in front of a charm school. Peeking in, I saw, amidst taffetas and Silks, models Betty Koncz, Pat Quinn, Ray Rotunda, and Eleanor Feigensohn. Wa1x'ing paint brushes furiously about Cand incidentally spilling paint all overj were artists Betty Casey and Gorden Badgley who were endeavor- ing' to put the "Putty Girls" on canvas. Cameraman Eric Dahlstrom was "shooting" a certain angle ofGloria Peck. As head instructor, Branka Popovich, came walking toward me, I quickly turned and ran down the street. I was more bewildered than ever now that I had seen all my classmates as adults. Suddenly, as I passed the Abbot Antique Shoppe, I noticed a portrait, strangely familiar. Upon walking back and examining it more closely, I dis- covered that it was not a portrait. It was a mirror! c FRIEDA KRAMER, Clam Pmplzeiemf. ...II 49 in-- 'II lLAXSS SWMUFII SWF II 'CS ECAUSE 1 succeeded in exasperating my mathematic teachers, and ac- complished the great feat of Htlunkingu geometry, and intermediate algebra, 1 have been chosen as class Statistician. The facts and Hgures hereof, comply with all O. P. A. regulations. It was discovered, upon looking up the Senior list, that those stuclious, lovable Seniors are 445 in number. The 296 girls have to fight over the remaining 149 boys. After long hours of hard work, and referring to several mathematic books, the conclusion was drawn, that 592 feet have followed the 68,455,200 footsteps of the masculine sex. Their attendance record is a remarkable one. Out of the 165 school days, 5 Seniors managed to get to school every day, 100 missed a few days, and 542 got here at most 2 days per week. On the days missed, 46 trips were made to Buffalo and 150 movies were seen. At the beginning of the school year, Mr. Strough purchased 400 books ot yellow slips, and 500 books of tardy slips, with each book containing 100 permits. Out of these 7,000 permits, only 100 had authentic teacher's signatures. Ten Seniors are now serving a 10 year term at Sing Sing on forgery charges. Also 150 short day passes were given to graduates who said they wished to work. One hundred and twenty of these energetic people enjoyed the park benches across the street, and the 4 comfortable booths in Spinners. Out of the 400 hours spent by students in Spinners, 250 were claimed by Seniors. Out of the 6555 cokes tsomeone only had 5cj bought there, only 106y2 were bought by them. Of these 106yZ cokes, 58 were bought with borrowed money which was never returned. As each Senior spent at least S10 for gradua- tion expenses, those kind-hearted souls, who so cheerfully lent the money, might as well give it up as lost, and keep their wallets out of sight. Issued to the upper classmen, in the past year, were 600 school books. Each night, 60 were carried home, while the remaining 540 stayed in lockers from September to June. Those who did carry books home, knew that the only way they could pass was by making a good impression on their teachers. This shows that education ranks first and always in their minds. Eating is a subject that even the thinnest enjoy discussing, especially when eating means hot dogs. This tempting dish was served in the Cafeteria 6 times last year, and 600 hot dogs were served each time. The boys consumed 5,000 hot dogs, while the teachers and members ofthe fairer sex fought over the remain- ing 600. The teachers may have had more intelligence, but with the commando tactics taught in gym, the girls didn't have to put up much of a fight. Now after barely passing our subjects, and the fear of being caught "hooky- ing," no longer haunting us, we leave our alma mater-many of us to fight for victory, others of us, to stand by at home, awaiting its arrival.

A LWAYS ADVANCING N order to enter college or the Armed Forces, twenty-eight of our classmates graduated in Ianuary instead of Iune. Through hard work Linder the ac- celerated program, they managed to complete two years work in a year and a half. Despite their heavy burden, this brave little group found time to put on two of the year's most outstanding assemblies. The first was a student forum based on the radio "Town Meeting of the Air" at which Canterbury Coleman repre- sented the affirmative while Ierome Horwitz and Dick lVlcKelvey argued for the negative on the question, "Peacetime Conscription of 18-year olds." The second was the Class Day assembly shortly before their graduation. After a short play written and directed by Ronald Briggs which depicted their first day at high school, the history, will, prophecy, statistics, and testament of the Ianuary Class were read. In conclusion, Canterbury Coleman presented Mr. Strough and the school with a banner to commemorate the class. NO one who attended the assembly will ever forget Canterbury's farewell speech, given while the rest of the class softly hummed "Auld Lang Synef' Graduation meant no relief from work for these boys and girls. By the time graduation exercises were held lanuary 50, several of them had already left for the Armed Forces or college. NO matter where they may be when we graduate, we shall think with pride and admiration of those who should be with us, but who gave us pleasure and amusement to do their duty. nal 56 Ia-- IDASSIINNE IDAIIQAIDIE VIEAIIQ IDD 'U Ili 'ID IFIFII 'C IE IDS -YA .ga fv- CARL Foss DTARGARETE MxDAs BETTY ROHRER FRANK BOWEN C0-lfdflor Co-Edilol' zl.r.r1f.rlanl Edllol' lgll.I'L.lItJJ'.l' Jfrznnyer BETTY CASEY Jr!

Motion Picture Company is better known as the student council. Although the manpower shortage of recent years hit last year's student council drastically, we managed to pull through 1944-1945 with just two council presidents. Paul Costanzo, the school's basketball star, replaced Dick Clancy who was graduated in Ianuary. Some of the numerous projects the council has undertaken include the sale of tickets for "The Road to Zanzibar," the movie sponsored by the yearbook, the collection of money for the A. W. V. S. QU. S. OJ, the sale of war bonds and stamps, and the collection of soap for the Polish people. Despite the coal shortage and many other war emergencies, the social com- mittee is to be commended on its work, which included a dance after one of the basketball games. The good sportsmanship committee, formed during the basketball season to promote the spirit of friendly competition among the schools participating in the tournaments, has also done a remarkable job. Working hard and long, the assembly committee provided that touch of entertainment necessary to Complete a well-rounded, happy school year. .ai 61 Ip.. NAUFIIIDNAXIL II'l'DN'DII2 SUCIIIEWIY ACH year, the Academy of Nlotion Picture Arts and Sciences presents an award to the outstanding workers in the industry. Our Academy Award winners are those who became members ofthe National Honor Society because of outstanding scholarship, character, service, and leadership. At the Hrst Academy Award dinner ofthe year, in our case a breakfast on Halloween, twenty-six new members were inducted. Acting as toastmaster was Dick lVlcKelvey, while Ioanne Wells, Frank Bowen, Margarete Midas, and Carl Foss spoke on the four basic qualities. Because of the interest in group discussion which became apparent in heated pre-election arguments, some of the members formed a discussion group whose weekly meetings were open to any one interested. The chief innovation was the society's new function as corridor patrol. Given jointly with the La Salle chapter, the banquet held Ianuary ll, was considered the outstanding event of the year. There, strengthened by steaks and French fries, the members were entertained by Earl W. Brydges, guest speaker, and a truth or consequences program under the direction of Carl Foss, Master of Ceremonies. Officers for the first term were Bill YVilson, Presidentg Ioanne Wells, Vice- President, and Carol Green, Secretary, while Frank Bowen, Dick lVlcKelvey, and Iulia Cabello were elected to these offices for the second term. The largest group ever to be admitted to the Honor Society at one time was inducted at a surprise tapping ceremony in assembly on Nlarch 7th. Among the spring projects were a splash party and the annual picnic which concluded the year's activities. P ..:1I Ig.. ILII II3 IDA IDY S each motion picture studio has its research division, Niagara has its library. The cheery room, with pine-panellecl walls and endless rows of books, is the ideal place to escape cross study hall teachers and delve into another world. 1 But behind the scenes, who checks the visitors in and out, stamps the books, and collects the fines? lt is the library staff, a group of girls who have shown their school spirit by giving up their study halls and putting in many hours a week to work under Miss Hutson's supervision. To become an assistant, a girl must have an 80 per cent average. After a lew weeks of training, she is able to do any of the numerous jobs in and around the library. The work is divided and rotated so that each girl receives experience in checking books, magazines, and papers. To these girls who serve so efficiently to keep the library running smoothly, the school owes a debt of gratitude: S. Wills, B. Stagg, I. Downey, M. Puccio, R. Vanderhoff, Miss D. Hutson, R. Poulos, A. Cirrito, M. lenson, Sekula, F. Daddario, H. McClure, M. Cali, I. Penman, M. Carusa, S. Davis, C. Stempien, Shepherd, P. Mazuronski, B. Iensen, D. Ciadella, E. Asby, R. Shankland, M.

Y VONNE Fix Under their capable direction, the Associated Music Clubs of Niagara Falls High School have enjoyed a successful year. The orchestra appeared in public five times. "F'inlandia" presented by the orchestra at the autumn concert, December 5, was especially outstanding. The orchestra lent dignity to the solemn occasion of graduation, both at Ianuary and Iune. Its other public appearances were at the spring concert, May 10, and in an assembly program at South Iunior High School. The mixed chorus also appeared in the autumn and spring concerts. Especi- ally well received was "Gianina Mia" from "The Firefly." Students at South Iunior found "The Lobster Quadrilleu from "Alice in Wonderland" very enter- taining when the chorus presented an assembly there May 5. The A Cappella choir has had a full year. They sang at the autumn concert and participated in the Christmas assembly. On March l, the choir was invited to sing at the Lenten service at St. Paul's Methodist Church before an audience of about 1,500 people. At the spring concert, they sang Franz Schuberfs Cantata, "Miriam's Song of Triumph." The band under Mr. Emert's direction appeared on the football field through the year, contributing color to the enthusiasm voiced at the games. They also participated in two assemblies here, one at South Iunior, and one at Trott, at which the band piyed, The clarinet quartet played at South Iunior and in the autumn concert of the Associated MLISTC Clubs. In assembly April 24, the students and faculty enjoyed a medley of Victor Herbert favorites and the processional from "Peter and the YVolf" by Prokoheff. The annual spring picnic crowned the social events of the Associated Music Clubs for the year.

This year the combined efforts ofthe Girl Reserve Clubs have fostered many activities. "The Angel's Delight," a formal dance, was held for the cadets of Niagara University. During Lent, the cooperation of the clubs brought some ofthe city's prominent speakers to the Y. A number of girls from each club have signed up for service work in the local hospitals. The girls have also aided the soldiers at Fort Niagara by sending Christmas cookies and packages to them. A mid-winter conference of Girl Reserves inspired representatives from each club. TRI Y The Tri-Y with Ann Long as president really went to town this year. A scavenger hunt and a closed plaid shirt dance called "Shirtails for Two" high- lighted the fun. "Bundles for Britain" appreciated the etlorts of the Tri-Y in making slippers for the children abroad and aiding them in other ways. BEDA Cm In the Beda Chi, the girls enjoyed a hayride and a Valentine Dance. An unusual bake sale was one of their activities for the year. Lorraine Alaimo is their president. GAMMA RI IO The Gamma Rho Club with Rosemary Valentino as president went all out on the "Gifts for Yanks Who Gave." A spring dance and hayride were among their activities.

TAYLOR CASSANO MOORADIAN N Uno IH ll 1-V95 A LP11 A HE Alpha chapter of the Niagara Falls Hi-Y organization has been operating longer than any other local Hi-Y chapter. A varied program throughout the year was designed to develop the mental, moral, and physical aspects ofthe members of the group who rotated in planning and conducting meetings. Nlovies were shown and several speakers discussed worthwhile subjects of interest to the youth of today. The cooperation between club officers, the faculty, and the other club members has resulted in an interesting and inspiring year. IXLPHA DE1.'rA The Alpha Delts' year began with the open house and the beginning of pledging. After a strenuous football season came the formal initiation. The high-point of the winter came on February 1 with the election of officers. Pledging was again resumed in February. Two of the more social activities of the Alpha Delta Hi-Y were the Hi-Y dance and the Alpha Delta picnic con- cluding the ninth year in the history of the Alpha Delta Hi-Y. BETA There are few people in N. F. H. S. who remember the day the Beta Hi-Y was organized. This year, as well as previously, members of the club have been proud to participate in school activities under the leadership of Anthony Rendina and the advisor, Mr. Grauer. To the football squad the Beta Hi-Y lent Mike Aiduk and Tony Cassano. Active in basketball this year were: Bob Quarantillo, Tony Cassano, Anthony Mooraclian, and Nlilce Aiduk. The musically adept members ofthe club participated in school choral groups, band, and orchestra. A social feature of the year was a party ofthe Gamma Rho girls' club. As each member graduates, his name is added to the Scroll of Honor to link him always to his school club. a-:xl 78 If IE AUT IU ID IE S X J IDAXN Il-I IEILILIEN IIC Theta Lambda Chi.

IDAN II'I IEILILIEN IIC S a special feature, we are presenting a brief study ofthe activities of the "Greeks" They had a busy time this year, beginning ambitiously early in the fall to reorganize Pan Hellenic, a union of all the fraternities and sororities, by drawing up a. constitution based on former rules and regulations. Room 152 became the scene of many hot debates on Tuesday afternoons until it was decided to hold regular weekly meetings, although it meant giving up a lively time at the soda fountain after school. They also decided to invite as Pan Hellenic advisors the faculty advisor of each separate sorority and fraternity. The inter-fraternity football games resulted in the usual number of bruised noses and twisted ankles. However, what's a broken leg among fraternitiesl The sororities showed their fraternal spirit by whole-heartedly attending the annual pot-luck supper. Considering themselves experienced at the art of cooking, they bravely ate their own poison. After the supper each sorority contributed some form of entertainment which was the finish ofa very enjoyable evening. In the fall we saw the usual number ot' pledges looking lost and harried at first, but gaining a look of serene happiness when their time of pledgeship was over. The new members quickly became loyal supporters of Pan Hellenic. ln the spring Pan Hellenic again sponsored an assembly entertaining this time with Ross Burley, a magician, who mystified even the most sophisticated senior. ln the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love, but the "Greeks" turn to thoughts of spring dances. There was an especially large number of dances in the spring of this year-almost one every week in fact. The "Greeks" put on some "smooth" dances despite wartime handicaps adding color and excitement to our high school days. At the same time these dances cheered the lives of those less fortunate, for profits were often given to charity or put into War Bonds. Crowds ol' the "Greeks" congregated before and after school in the cafeteria to sec their friends and worry about the day's tests and assignments. They little realized that they were part of an organization which greatly benefits the school and fraternal organizations. -al 81 ln-- TIIH IEWFA ILAMMII3 IDA an I .a 4, 'A 45 'EY I sa v , ins 3 N P ABBOTT REAGAN STEWART WxLsoN DYKSTRA MARTINSON Ll A.

Tonawanda 7 Troff 0 IDIEWIIIENV 'Ulf lfll-IIE SIEASUN UR game with Tonawanda October 8, 1944 marked the first game with a Frontier League Team in years. The stands were packed with an expect- ant, cheering crowd of supporters and anxious for a win. Charging to their positions from their first huddle with blood chilling yells, the Falls boys excited the crowd, and with Ioe Condino, Bill Iekielek, and the rest of the team turned in stellar work. Our smoothly-functioning team had Hyde Park Stadium shaking with the cheers of the rooters accolading each touchdown. At the final gun, a somewhat-surprised Tonawanda eleven found themselves decisively beaten, 19 "O, by a superior Falls squad. The next game at LaSalle before a large audience was a thrilling game from the first to last minutes va see-saw battle in which the lead changed hands several times, both teams fighting for the ball and a score. A beautiful pass play from Condino to Costanzo put us in the lead only to have LaSalle tie the score in the last minutes. NVith Kenmore next on the list, we journeyed there with hopes of a win to put us in the lead. A bruising game, there were no scores until near half time. Unfortunately Bill -Iekielek and Frank Granata suffered injuries-Frank, a broken ankle, which dampened our spirits. Despite the Herculean effort of the Falls squad, the Kenmore team rolled up a 21-0 score against the weakened 'Falls crew. WVith the loss ofa strong center lineman and a smart half-back the Falls team traveled to Lackawanna with a determination to return to the win column. ln a close battle played in a rain storm, the Lackawanna team trailed a good part of the game only to force a 7e7 deadlock which was the score at the final gun. Despite all the Falls squad could muster, a strong Lockport team defeated us I3-0 in our next home game. An out-of-town game with North Tonawanda saw the home team defeat us by the narrow margin of 7-6. Underrated before game time, the Falls eleven played well despite the rain and to use a common slang expression, "we was robbed." It was only on a lucky break that N.AT. scored. The final game of the year was played on a wet, snow-covered field Thanks- giving day against our arch and ancient rival-Trott. A large crowd of partisan rooters were on hand to witness a hard-fought, see-saw battle. The game ended in a 0-0 tie. It was a moral victory for both sides and gave the season a successful climax. A word of praise should be given here to the V. squad who played 4 games with the Trott and LaSalle teams and came out on top in three of them. They worked hard and deserve credit. --al 95 In-' l I.

Not only did they defeat the Kenmore tive, but they went on to emerge unbeaten at the end of the first round. Stellar play by Frank Rodriguez and Hank Nlietlowski baffled the opponents in every game. A smart tip-up play on the jump, from Austin to Rodriguez to Mietlowski, almost always started the game with a score for Niagara. The fine pass work of the others, Xvalos, both Costanzos, Pescrillo, Nlensinger, DeFazio, and Aiduk set the stage time after time for scores. Our zone defense worked wonders and we were scored upon the least by far of any team. We went on to win ten straight and there was some talk of another undefeated season. Our eleventh game was against Lackawanna, at the time the Hhottesti' team in the league. This game was played on our own home court where the spectators crowded close to the side lines. It was one of the most exciting contests ot' the year for as one team scored so did the other. With amazing accuracy and some lucky "breaks," Lackawanna emerged the victor of a most bitterly fought game, 56-51. Our team never lost hope and in the last seconds, quick shots by Captain Rodriguez were good to narrow the score as for a time it appeared we might forge ahead to victory. The gang bounced right hack to the winning column. Rodriguez, Mietlowski and Deliazio played their last game of the season against Lockport in the second round and the High rooters gave them both standing ovations. Frank and Hank had been hulwarks of offense and defense as they were top scorers on the team. Don displayed good form in his substitute role. The next morning these fighting sons of Niagara were inducted into the service. In the play-offs in Kenmore, the fellows had an OH' night against a "hot" aggregation from Tonawanda, and Niagara won only, third berth. This review would not be complete without a word of praise to the undefeated Iunior Varsity. Prospects of a great team again next year are in order from the V's. The I"la.vf1b11ck stall and its student supporters say, "Hats off to the fellows of the basketball squad." --al 97 Ia-- 'E II'I IE IE ID IL IEA ID IE IDS I. CIESIELSKI F. PECCIRELLO L. FERNANDEZ M.

These students have worked untiringly in their etiorts to provide a convenient store for their fellow classmates. The profit from the school store sales is used for different assemblies throughout the year. YVar Bonds and stamps have been sold at the school store by Yolanne Forcucci, Marian Serrianne and Rose Sonsiadlo. The approximate amount of bonds and stamps sold this school year totaled S7,000. The publicity staff of the yearbook presented the movie "Road to Zanzibaru from 1:50 to 5:00 on February 28 in the auditorium. Starring in this movie were Bob Hope, Dorothy Lamour and Bing Crosby. An additional extra short subject was also presented. A totl of 700 tickets were sold and the funds received were used by the yearbook stall. The yearbook assembly, one of the most outstanding ofthe year, was presented by the publicity staff' of the yearbook under the capable direction of Marilyn Gaertner. The Court of Niagara under the supreme rule of Queen Joanne YVells and King Bill Wilson, created that novel touch. Their royal attendants were Dora Bertoglio and Joe Fernandez representing the Iunior Class, and Barbara House and Nicholas Carosella from the Sophomore Class. Carl Stewart's band supplied plenty of "hep" music and the clever "singing commercials" were rendered by Betty Burns, Pearl Gerber, and Angie Mehitcll. The Iunior Iivers consisting of Eleanor Princevalle, Rose Maglio, Canterbury Coleman, Iolm Pinizotti, Albert Pinizotti and Gary Manuse sang many popular songs.

SlfIlQ'OlU'l3II'I HE year 1945 marks the end of a very pleasant period for the faculty of the Niagara Falls High School. For sixteen years, Mr. Strough has held the direction of our school. Some of us have been associated with him during all that time, and others, for a shorter span. But, whether the term has been long or short, it has been a happy relationship whose termination would make us sad were it not for the realization that this change means a greater opportunity for Mr. Strough. There will he left with us many agreeable recollections. Chief among these will be the memory of deep-seated kindness. We have heen impressed by the fact that that quality has prevailed in all the situations where good-will and tact are so essential. There has never heen the easy petulance which aggravates difficult moments, hut rather an understanding which prompts the right word and gesture. This good-humor and this self-control are not characteristics easily maintained. They, indeed, give the measure of the man. Mr. Strough has furnished us with intelligent and successful leadership. We shall recall with pleasure the ideals which he has set hefore us and the problems which we have attempted to solve with him in the light of these ideals. YVe shall think often ofthe skill with which he has presided over faculty meetings, assemblies, and other gatherings. He has shown gracious levity when lightness was required, and dignified seriousness in its place. His words have heen marked hy an admirable balance of warmth and nice restraint. So it is rightly with regret that we see Mr. Strough leave us. But he does so with the assurance that our kindest thoughts accompany him to his new post. We feel that the community which receives him will soon develop that affection and esteem which we have for him. Our last hand-clasps will convey to him our ardent wish for his prosperity and success. ' 106 11:4- 1VlONG the graduates of 19-15 is the man who has guided and watched over us alleour principal, Nlr. Strough. He leaves Niagara Falls High School to take over his new duties as Superintendent of Schools in Rome, New York. XVitl1 him go our lmest wishes for further and even greater success, and our deep, lasting gratitude for all he has done for us. It is dillicult to imagine our Alma Matex' without Mr. Strough. But, as he himself said, he will return occasionally, just like an alumnus. In his new position, he told us, he will not be so close to the students as he was to us, so that we would remain his "first love." That is gratifying to know, and our answer is that he, too, will remain ours. YVe the Class of 1945, are proud to have Mr. Strough as fellow-graduate. The rest ofthe school joins us in good wishes, but if we could utter only one word, we would say, humbly and simply, "Thanks" -ai 107 115. I WW . MW qi AxrU1r10'ellQAxlDlHs ff ,.f-'G' ,ffig 07' XE?
