Business Manager THE NIAGARIAN 1946 P bl sh d by THE NIAGARIAN STAFF NIAGARA FALLS HIGH SCHOOL Niagara Falls New York THIS CHANGING WORLD l-TE old order changeth, yielding place to new, and God fulfils l-limself in many ways. . . lfTennyson had but lcnown, when he penned those lines a hundred years ago, what marvelous changes would be wrought within that one brief centuryl Even the past fifty years have brought about entirely different methods of transporta- tion, communication, improvements in medicine, architecture, and health. Picture American high school boys and girls of the "Gay Ninetiesnz the bustle, leg-o-mutton sleeve, petticoat-enveloped young ladies dancing the Virginia Reel or the "new" waltz with the young gentlemen in their tight trousers and short iaclcets. After the dance, they would go for a ride in the parlc by horse and buggy. The houses they lived in were large, as were their families. The pictures they exchanged were tintypes. It they travelled any distance, they went by trains-small, slow, stuffy, and dirty. Messages were sent by letters which were slow, and by telegraph. Epidemics of smallpox and diphtheria were difficult to checlc, the X-ray had iust been invented. "The old order changeth. : . H Today we are high school "guys" and "gals" in our plaid shirts and rolled-up trousers, our sweaters and bracelets and bobby-sox. Some of us are iitterbugs and rumba hounds. We go out on dates in the family Buick or Plymouth, or our own ialopies. We dance or listen to victrola records or the radio, we attend movies, we indulge heavily in millcshalces, pop, hot dogs, and "donuts" We live in flats, apartments, or small houses, because our families are smaller. We love photographs, we have collections of friends' and movie stars' pictures on our mirrors, loclcer doors, and noteboolcs. It we travel, we go by auto- mobile or by comfortable, air-conditioned busses, trains, or airplanes. We send messages auiclcly by telephone, telegraph, air mail, V-mail, and radio, all over the world. Our newspapers have pictures sent by wirephoto from anywhere on the globe. ln a few years we'll be watching the Army-Navy football games by techni- color television. Our older brothers' helped win the war in iet-propelled fighter planes. This has been the age of roclcet-bombs and atomic war. lt's going to be up to us to malce it the age of atomic peace. As we go out of high school into the world, we're going to find that more of its problems are our problems, more of its discoveries, our discoveries, more of its ioys, our ioys. Each of us, whether working, studying, or building a home and family, will find himself constantly challenged by change. ln our hands lies the shaping of the destiny of Tl-HS CHANGING WORLD. DEDICATION 0 this changing world, to those who are to come and vvho are to make their marks in this world of peace, to those who were obliged to leave before their gradua- tion to serve our country, and who created the peace into which vve are now stepping, and to the many of them who have returned to continue their studies where they were interrupted, especially, clo vve Want this book to stand as a symbol of encouragement. To the Future graduating classes of Niagara Falls High School who, vve trust, vvill have the opportunity of completing their high school education without any iurther disturbances, we, the graduating class of 1946, dedicate this yearbook vvith the desire for a peaceful luture. Administration Seniors Undergraduates CONTENTS Clubs and Organizations Athletics Features ALMA MATER E love thee, dear old l-ligh With your halls ot learning grand.

SMALL Superintendent of Schools I om gIad to have this opportunity to express my greetings and best wishes to the students ot the Niagara Falls I-Iigh School. These are times that challenge the best that is in each ot us. Complex sociai problems can only be satisfactorily soIved onthe basis ot broader Imowiedge and better understanding. The ideaI ot a worId at peace can onIy be attained through unceasing determination and continuous ertort. In no other age has mankind ever had so great an opportunity or such grave responsibilities. The present challenge to you is to prepare yourself as thoroughly as you can to meet these obligations. Nine en i JAMES H. ERWIN Deputy Superintendent of Schools l vvant to alter my congratulations not only to the Nineteen l'lundred Forty-six graduates but to all the students oi the Niagara Falls I-iigh School upon completion of their yearis work. Those graduating this year, while completing the secondary phase oi public school vvorlc, have Finished only another step in the ladder. Education must be continuous, especially in this atomic age, since only by education can we hope to save the world and prevent another world catastrophe which probably would end civilization. The necessities oi vvar brought forth many new scientific ideas and a more complex lcnovvledge of vvorld government. By education alone can vve learn to control these new factors and live in 'iQne World.'i CLARK J. PEET if WILLIAM F. JACK Principal To the Niagarian Staff and Class of 1946: lt is especially vvorthy ot notice that you have selected for your yearbook the theme, xulhis Changing World." We all need to realize the rapid changes that the last few years have brought to us and the probabilities that the next ievv years will bring even greater changes. The information, l4novvledge, and iacts you have received of the past during your high school course should be a great assistance to you in understanding and meeting the problems of the future. That should be, to a great extent, the criteria lor iudging the value of your high school education. My best vvishes and sincere regards go with you as you leave N. F. H. S. Vice-Principal To the Class of 1946: It is said that the future is so unpredictable that the only thing certain about the vvorld ot tomorrovv is that it will be ditterent from the world oi today. Every generation has been laced with a similar situation, but the necessary changes oi today and tomorrovv in our complex vvorld will otter manyiglorious opportunities to each oi you. Face the future vvith confidence, because the good habits which you have Formed and the high ideals vvhich you have developed vvill enable you to meet successfully the chal- lenge ol tomorrovv. May your every endeavor be rewarded by the success you desire. Eleven B. Gregg Abbey Robert H. Baxter Alfred W. Benson Olive Chalterfon Twelve Florence M.

Commencement draws near and soon the annals of another Senior Class will be history. I-Iowever, we pause here to reminisce, step by step, the history of the Class of '46. As we stood before the portals of Niagara falls I-Iigh School on registration day in September of 1943, we were, indeed, a bewildered group of sophomores. After school had officially gotten under way, we were slow in malcing friends with our older brothers and sisters. Hflunlqers frolicf, a dance sponsored by the Student Council in January of 1944, seemed to ease the tension considerably, june Regents proved to be our first formidable barrier, but we surmounted this by our ever-growing determination to malce good. When we returned the next fall, our ranlcs had increased with new students entering from Gasldll slunior I-Iigh School. The newness of our surroundings had long since worn off and we now very willingly and proudly assumed the title of Uhluniorsf' finally, our time came. We returned to school in September as full-fledged seniors, humbled by a colorful past and stimulated by a glimpse of graduation. Books became our constant companions, "diploma," our password. Gne of the biggest events of the year, thanks to the untiring efforts of frank Baggallay, was the record smashing presentation of the senior play entitled "The Enchanted Cottage," written by Sir Arthur Pimero. Cn February 6, we gave the graduating class of 41 fellow classmates, a good send off. In the same month the senior class held its first meeting and chose Miss Esther Dahlquist as its adviser. The officers are: john Kilkenny, president, Richard Stevens, vice-president, Franlc Massaro, secretary, Leo Kotlarz, treasurer. The class day officers are: Jeannine Fiori, Statistician, Rose Maglio, testator, james O'Connor, prophet, Lois Reisig, poet, C. Wesley King, historian. Green and white are the class colors and the class flower is the white Killarney Rose. The motto is the inspiring "No Steps Backward." JaneII Jenss wrote the class song. With graduation upon us, the first lap of life's iourney is brought to a close. We are, indeed, gratified with the degree of success which is ours. As our motto implies, the Class of '46 is resolved to attain higher heights in the world of tomorrow. C. Wesley King, Class I-listorian Assisted by Beverly Goldstone and Thomas Thorne Forty-seven Forty-eight SENIOR PROPHECY Tis night. l am seated in my seance parlor. The heavy blaclc curtains are drawn and the huge crystal ball on the table before me glows with an eerie light. The mists gradually clear away and l see before me a strange sight. A lofty building soars into view and l see a woman's figure running toward it. She stops, loolcs furtively around, then begins to tug at the corner stone dated 1960. Another figure Flashes into sight. Why, it's Lloyd Patterson, resplendent in bishop's robesl l-le stops in horror, then yells, "Put down that corner stone, Mother, youire talcing too much for graniteln The scene shifts to farther down the street and suddenly a loud horn accompanied by a long, low whistle blasts my ears. The sounds are repeated to be followed by a squeal of bralces as Marge Walker rounds the corner, streales past policeman Bob Moore, and slcids to a stop in her man-catching convertible coupe, equipped with bear traps on the front bumper and patented wolf call and whistle combined, directly in front of Rose Maglio's super sl4y service station. She spots a handsome guy ambling down the street past Jeannine Fiori's plastic hardware store. She iumps out, and iust as l am about to see some action, the crystal clouds over. The scene now depicted is the famous New Yorlc limes building. How it's changedl The building nears and l find myself gazing in the window of a sumptuous office on the fortieth floor. Giving rapid fire orders over two television 'phones at the same time is the editor. l loolc closer. With surprise l recognize her. lt's Bev Milloy. The door bursts open and in runs Cathie Hess, Bea Cole, and Eunice Pratt, demon reporters, followed by Shirley Boolcout, Marion Jack, and Dot Swiderslci, Editor Milloy's personal secretaries. Cathie slaps down the latest ml'lMlfS," still wet with printer's inlc, onto Editor Milloy's blue lucite deslc. Peering closely into the crystal l can see the headlines announcing the victory of Bill Simpson as champion free-style swimmer in the international Qlympics. The scene moves to the next office where Diclc Jacoby, serial story writer, is pounding out the latest installment on his typewriter of his smash sequel to the "Lost Weel4end" entitled "l-liclf' A dusty manuscript lying on the table beside him reads "A Revised Edition of 'Arsenic and Qld Lace, by Jaclc Klahs and Don Kysor or 'Bilgewater and Qld Cheeseclothf H The scene fades and distorts, then disappears entirely to be replaced by a bird's-eye view of the classrooms in an ultra-modern school. The section l see appears to be the social science department where Marcia Eglof and Suzanne Hodge, teachers par excellence, are pouring forth streams of invective at their stupid, but attentive pupils. ln the midst of the blanlc faces in Miss Egloffs class sit a pair of bright-eyed, red- haired twins, daughters of the country's newest singing sensation, Betty Field. The scene changes slightly, and before me is an enormous room lilce a surrealistic lab- oratory, filled with glass everywhere. ln the center stands Franlclin "Lover" Fulson, SENIOR PROPHECY the popular conception ot a mad chemist, his curly locks rumpled, his eyes blazing, feverishly mixing together three smoking test tubes. The smoke increases and obscures all vision until it is whisked away by some unknown torce, but not before l glimpse his assistants, Shirley Hook, Paul Zelones, and Thelma Southerland. The reason lor this sudden gust ot wind is evident when the next scene appears. lt is the orchestra pit of the McGraw-Fernandez Theatre lavishly decorated with silk cushions and Numdah rugs on the Floor, designed and furnished by Scotty Milne. ln the center sits tuba-player Fred King blowing his instrument with lorce during the overture to "Non coati, non vesti, treezi en la piazzau written by Adelene DaRin. Near him sit Shirley Creelcmore and Audrey Buckley, pounding on the pianos. The overture Finishes, the houselights are dimmed by Bob Theal, and the curtain rises on a set depicting a sawmill. Tied to the buzz saw is beautiful Pat Haller looking with haughty disdain at the villain who is twirling his handlebar moustaches, none other than Dick Stevens. ,lust in the nick of time l see the door crash open, and in rushes the hero, joe Taylor, to foil the villain in his mad scheme. Vigorous applause is heard from the audience as, with a clap of thunder, the scene changes once more. Qver the street that l see, hovers a silver helicopter with George Beck at the con- trols. Below on the street riding in a long black sedan l see a Figure that looks vaguely familiar. Qt course. lt's Jack Ursprung. And iudging by his uniform, he is now a six-star admiral in the Coast Guard. ln another car directly behind the sedan, this one only a broken down 1959 Kaiser, l see Pat Miller driving with one hand, the other clutching his trusty camera. A card in his hat intorms me ot his occupa- tion. Sitting next to him is Joe Dooley, also with a camera, and in the shadows ot the back seat l can lust make out the Familiar lace ol "Corky" Harvey, frantically scribbling a news story. The cars Flash by and everything disappears to give place to a television broadcasting studio where l see Elizabeth Osborn and David Williams playing "John and his Qther Wife," judging from the placard set near the micro- phone. Their popular announcer is Gertrude Blaise. ln the next studio l see Gloria Gruarin and Dolores Davey standing at a mike surrounded by a refrigerator, stove, and a multitude ot pots and pans. They seem to be making Fudge and describing the process to their eager listeners at the same time. A loud crash is heard as the scene shitts to the sidewalk below. Seated in the midst ot shattered pottery is Lucille Losch, who has no doubt iust found out that she can't carry all those vases by herself. lt's really a funny sight, and try-as-l-may not to laugh, l do. Lucille seems to sense something wrong and looks around. She sees me looking at her. Picking up the only unbroken vase, she hurls it toward me. There is a loud crash, and the crystal goes dark. The seance is over. james Qfonnor, Class prophet Forty-nine ifty SENIOR STATISTICS , hoving been chosen cIoss stotisticion, om submitting the foIIovving occurote ond honest report: Out of 432 seniors, 406 onsvvered the questionnoires sent out.

SENIOR POEM ILL you remember us when we are gone' Or will you forget This class that is passing on To roads as yet unmet? We Find it hard to leave, recalling lime spent here, We smile to thinlc ol lates, belalling Us each year We dwelt within these walls Ot learning. Qur thoughts will echo through the halls, Returning. Behind us, we are leaving scattered dreams Of hope for you. Ahead, the engine ol advancement steams Towards the new. Qur entrance gained, ahead will Fly Dreams ol success, All eager now to search and try For happiness, But wearily, il thoughts turn back To things like this, We will often realize how much we laclc, l'low much we miss. So, carried forth with changing times, We leave: Some to speed to lar-ott climes, Some to cleave To present Friends, familiar ways, Some to strive lor greater learning. But all will loolc to youthful days With hearts a little yearning. This class that is passing on To roads as yet unmet, Will you remember when we are gone- Qr will you Forget? Lois A.

Some members toolc this shortened program so that they could further their education by attending college, while others did so to enter the armed forces. These graduates held the traditional class day assembly on January 23. The president, Joe Lach, gave a tallc based on the motto of the class, "Progress and Successf' Then the class history vvas given by Tom Woitaszelc and the class statistics by Rosa Perri. Carolyn White read the class poem and Janette Dunlap read the prophecy for the students. The last will and testament was presented by Jaclc Thompson. Cn the committee for this assembly were Mary Louise Fiasca, Douglas Graham, and Robert Sdao. During this assembly, Mary Louise Fiasca presented the mantle vvith the duty of upholding the doctrine of Niagara Falls High School to Joyce Miller, a member of the June graduating class, who accepted it on behalf of all June graduates. ' Graduation exercises for these 41 students were held in the evening on February 6. Thirteen of those who vvere graduated completed the requirements for a high school diploma While still in service. Fven before their graduation day had arrived, several members had already made plans to enlist in the armed forces. So, as the old changes for the nevv, the January graduates left Niagara Falls l-ligh, leaving the most recent graduates, the June 1946 seniors, to talce their places.

Ryan JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY Two down, one to goI Thatis we, the Junior Ciass of Niagara I:aIIs I-Iigh School. We have reached our enviable position through hard woric and cooperation of teachers and students aIiI4e. Upon entering our Alma Mater in '44, we were appaIIed by our IacI4 of Icnowiedge and aIso by the "true" superiority of the seniors. We found ourselves quite indispensabie to the operating of schooi activities. Ihus, we were soon engaged in a myriad of functions designed to heip us toward our goaI, which we now have aImost realized, that of becoming seniors, In September of'45,we found our ronics strengthened by recruits ofsophomores from GosIciII. Feeling our new energy, we immediateiy found our representatives engaged in successful competition in the fieid of sports. Our dramatically-minded feIIow iuniors presented "Janie's One IracI4 Mind" on November thirteenth and fourteenth. Another proof of the iuniors supreme technique was the recent seiection of Queen of Niagara, Laura Fernandez with Darlene Woodard as runner-up. Our cIass was organized with the selection of Mr. Abbey as adviser, and the election of the following officers: Nicholas CaroseIIa, president, Patsy Destino, vice-president, Mary Lou Ryan, secretary-treasurer. Now that we have rightfuIIy acquired the high and mighty -honor of caIIing our- selves "Juniors," we can scorn and scoff ot the poor, adoiescent children Icnown as sophomores, and IooIc up in awe and admiration as we bow to those whose traditions and responsibiiities we shall inherit as seniors.

Seventy THE LIBRARY As new inventions and ideas came into the world, they are set down on paper and published in the form ol books. Some Q75 ol these have iound their way into the school library this year. These new ones added to the books already in the library make a total ol 4500 books now onthe bookshelves ready for our use. Each day an average at 90 books are taken out by students. A It is the work of the library stalt, a group ot girls under the direction of Miss Della l-lutson, to stamp books, check and deliver permits, and collect Fines. It is one of these 32 girls who smiles brightly and says, HYou'll Find that book under Travel," or "l'm sorry but that book isn't in at present." The room itself has changed since the new school was built. Because of crowded conditions, a door, which connected the library with 306, was replaced by shelves. There is also a magazine room on the west side ot the library which contains many older issues of 42 magazines and periodicals. Although the stall of the library and its contents change from year to year, the atmosphere of quiet and calm will always reign. The following girls have worked in the library this year: Shirley Amendt, Elaine Ashby, Emily Banos, Janice Barrs, Delores Bettino, Gertrude Blaise, Geraldine Brusino, Beverley Carney, Lena Cirrito, Shirley Clark, Jennie D'Angelo, Alba DeFiore, Anne Foriione, Amy Garrison, Suzanne Hodge, Harriet Hooker, Margaret Jensen, Margaret Kavanaugh, June Kostuk, Pat McGinnis, Mary McGraw, Kathleen McNamara, Maureen McNamara, Ann Moore, Ruby Murchison, Shirley Newtown, Pat Niedda, Anne Nudo, Mary Onopuk, Mariorie Parker, Neva Peckham, Dorothy Pitonyak, Rose Poulos, Norma Prey, Mary Puccio, Marianna Pyzynski, Doraine Sanzio, Becky Shaw, Jean Shepherd, Beverly Smith, Jean E.

Seventy-one NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY Seventy-two Dedicated to the tour cardinal principles of Character, Leadership, Scholarship and Service, the Niagara Falls High School chapter of the National Honor Society, although a comparatively young organization, has played an increasingly prominent role in school attairs since its inception in 1942. Another effect ot the Honor Society upon the school, an eftect which is readily apparent when one considers that the membership Figures have increased from 40 to 125 in the past tour years, is the tact that ithas stimulatedthoselourcardinal qualities -Scholarship, Leadership, Character, and Service. Although membership within the Society may not be an end in itself, it serves as a goal, or better yet, a beacon on which students may talce their bearings and towards which they may guide themselves. The local chapter began the school year with Richard Stevens, Thomas Thorne, Janet Moore, and Yolanda Scalzo as president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer respectively. ln October, 34 new members were inducted. ln January, the local chapter was the guest of the LaSalle branch at a dinner held at the Hotel Niagara. The mid-year elections saw Richard Stevens reelected to the presidency, and Martin Kotarba, Isabel Stefanslci, and Blanche Barbero elected to the posts of vice- president, secretary, and treasurer respectively. ln March, 60 students were inducted into the Society at a special assembly at which Mr. William Small, superintendent ol schools, was the guest speaker. ASSOCIATED MUSIC CLUBS The various music organizations of our school have continued this year as in the past to go on establishing a good reputation for themselves, and proving to all what an important part music plays in our school life. The club was officially organized this year at a meeting in October when the following officers were elected: President ..... .. .Marbud Gagen Vice-President .... , . .Elizabeth Csborn Secretary ..... .... E dward Taylor Treasurer ....... .. ... ... ..... Betty field A party was held in November to begin the season with music, dancing, and refreshments. ln the Twenty-Second Annual Thanksgiving and Spring Concerts, all of the music groups performed together. The proceeds from this and all other events were set aside for new robes for the A Cappella choir. ln Qctober the band played at the Niagara County Teachers' Convention held at high school. They also presented assembly programs at South junior, Trott, and Stella Niagara. The orchestra played at two music assemblies, and also at South glunior. ln Decem- ber they played for a presentation by ,lane Keeler of Buffalo given at high school, followed by two music appreciation concerts for the students of the fourth, fifth, and sixth grades. The first was given here April Q, and the next at LaSalle, sponsored by the Parent Education Association. The orchestra also played for the January and June Commencements. The Salon Symphonette, a group of seven of the orchestra members, played for a Community Chest Dinner, the junior and Senior plays, and for a spring banquet at the l'lotel Niagara for the Business and Professional Women. The A Cappella choir began by singing at the Niagara County Teachers' Con- vention in Qctober. They sang for the Community Chest dinner and presented a Thanksgiving broadcast over Wl'lLD. ln December, they sang for the College Club, the Rotary, the Lions, and the Kiwanis Clubs. ln March they sang at the Baptist Church, in April at St. James Church, and for a special Lenten service at St. Paul's Methodist Church. They also sang at school assemblies, one being the l-lonor Society assembly on March Qi. Cn palm Sunday they presented an excellent program over WHLD. ln addition to these many activities, the choir added to the January and the June graduations by contributing beautiful music, Although it has been a busy year, everyone will remember it with pleasure and satisfaction. Seventy three ORCHESTRA BAND A CAPPELLA CHORUS DEUTSCHER BCDTE For the last eight years the students ot Miss Baaderis German classes have been publishing a German newspaper called the Deutscher Bote. It is a very unique paper, and contains stories, iol4es, and poems Written in German. It is published monthly and sold tor tive cents a copy. Each issue ot the Bote has the same general outline. The cover is chosen to correspond with the season and a ditterent picture is used for each issue. The popular gossip page is called "Am Schlussellochn which means "through the lceyholef' There are also cartoons and poems scattered throughout the pages. The artists contribute to the cartoon pages and submit cover drawings, one of which is chosen each month. As all oi the material must be both typed and stenciled, there is also a group to do this vvorlc. And in addition, there is a squad of mimeographers who run oft the paper each issue. The planning is done weeks ahead ot time in order to do the needed layout tor the paper. It is decided which student will talce each assignment, and a deadline forthe material to come in is set. When the articles are handed in, they are corrected and then they are given to the typists. After the material has been typed, the editors "make up" the paper by pasting the articles on ruled pages, arranging them so that each page will be the usual length. These pages are given to the stencilists to be stenciled, and when that has been done, they are mimeographed and stapled together. The Deutscher Bote usually uses its funds on hand at the end oi the school year tor things that would better the appearance oi the German classroom. It contributes frequently to worthy charities. This German paper, under the supervision ot Miss Baader, has proved to be a very successful undertaking and it is hoped that it will be even bigger and better in the years to come. l Seventy-six QUILL AND SCROLL lnternational Honorary Society for High School journalists ln the spring of 1945, the editors of the Chronicle and their associates decided that the school should recognize outstanding achievement in the field of newspaper iournalism. Upon consultation with Mrs. Bereneice Oliver, faculty adviser, it was found that Quill and Scroll, the international l-lonorary Society for l-ligh School Journalists, was the recognized group throughout the world, to reward such attain- ment. HQuill and Scroll" was organized in April, 1926, by a group of high school advisers for the purpose of encouraging and rewarding individual attainment in iournalism. The Society aims to raise the standards of high school iournalism and direct its course. The "Chronicle" applied for a charter and was accepted. A constitutional com- mittee was set up and advisers appointed. The first induction toolc place in june, 1945, at which time QQ "Chronicle" staff reporters and editors were accepted as charter members. Cf these QQ, 13 were graduated last june, leaving nine active members. This February, three new members were inducted. The colors of the organization are blaclc and white, representing newsprint and inlr, while the emblem of the society is an unfurled scroll with a quill placed diagonally across it. Upon the emblem are placed the letters l.l'l.Sil'l.S.,l.-lnternational Honor- ary Society for High School journalists, and the words, Quill and Scroll. The officers of the Quill and Scroll are: Thomas Thorne, president, Beatrice Cole, vice-president, Marcia Eglof, secretary. Mrs. Bereneice Oliver is the faculty adviser. The Chapter of Quill and Scroll at Niagara Falls l-ligh School has been officially named mihe Lyndon l'lall Stroughn chapter, in honor of our former principal. Back row: R. Gagen, L. Patterson, J.

It it had not been for the stage crew and the proiection sta Ft, the students ot Niagara Falls High School probably would not have seen any movies or witnessed any plays this year. The stage crew has accomplished a multitude of iobs that would seem impossible to many people. The iunior and senior plays owed much of their success to the excellent scenery designed, painted, and erected by the ambitious boys oi the crew. They also handled lighting arrangements and properties. ln the senior play, "The Enchanted Cottagef' Mr. Baggallay and the stage crew accomplished the diiticult taslc of creating a lightning chamber for the windows. The proiection stall, besides supervising all assembly movies, science movies, and the lilce, presented movies for the Teachers, Association lecture and "The Marlc ot Zorroi' starring Tyrone Power and Linda Darnell, sponsored by the National Honor Society. The stage crew and proiection stall are really the forgotten organizations of high school, but they are the ones who really do the hard worlc, Under the direction and supervision of Mr. Franlc Baggallay and Mr. William Crowie, they have toiled, strained, and have probably gone slightly mad to accomplish the miracles about which no one really lcnows.

This squad was not only a service to the students of Niagara Falls High School but to the community as well. its duties consisted oi ushering at all gatherings in the high school for which an usher squad was required. At that time those ushers who attended a certain percentage of the activities were given a school seal. This year the usher squad under the supervision ot Mr. William Jaclc, vice-principal, is headed by June Schell. it has the task oi ushering at general teachers' meetings, graduation exercises, baccalaureate services, and social activities including plays, concerts and lectures.

Seventy nine THE BOOKSTORE Students may come and go, but the school store still remains. Every morning and during fifth period the store is open for the convenience of N. F. l'l. S. students. The little store at the left of the office is a familiar and welcome sight to those who need school supplies. The store was not organized to mal4e profit. Miss Emma l'lulen started the store as a service to the students and as a means of raising funds for the Student Council. lt functions today under the same principles. When Mr. ,laclc came to Senior l-ligh, he took over the management of the store. ln 1945, it passed on to Miss Virginia Donohue, whois assisted by Betty Stagg, Minnie Webster, Vivian Wilson, Dora Lee, Lois Broolcins, Frances Voellcer, Mary Lasher, Eugene Muth, and Nick Carosella. School supplies sold in the store include looseleaf, typing, graph, and plain paper, pencils, tablets, noteboolcs, protracters, and folders. The profit made this year was used to sponsor two assemblies. Mr. Edward Jeamby, the man with large collection of canes, delighted all the students. ln the spring Mr. C. findley Bowser, mountain climber, showed some beautiful and instructive motion pictures. A few years ago funds from the school store made it possible to purchase the service flag displayed on the second floor opposite the assembly. Plans are being made to establish a lost and found department in the store. As yet, it is only in the malcing, but in future years it will be a reality. Eighty Back row: B. Stagg, M. Lasher, L.

At that time there were not as many groups as there are today. The purpose oi the l'li-Y's is to create, maintain, and expand throughout the school and community high standards oi Christian living. To carry out this purpose the boys in the groups obtain supervision, education, and recreation as well. Today there are three l'li-Y groups operating in the Niagara Falls l'ligh School- Beta, Alpha Delta, and Tobovi. BETA Beta was formed many years ago and since that time has become well-lcnown in the eyes oi the students. The members oi this club have completed another success- iul year with Anthony Mooradian as president.

Darlene Schieman, Verna Palmer The Pan-l-lellenic Society ol Niagara Falls l-ligh School is an organization composed of tvvo representatives from each of the Greelc letter fraternities and sororities registered with the high school oitice. It was organized in 1940. The First aim ot the Society is to promote a better understanding and better co- operation among the fraternities and sororities, This aim has been achieved during the past few years through unity in a common endeavor to aid the school in every way possible. This is put into action each year in the form of the Pan-l-lellenic Assembly, which tal4es place in the Spring. This year the assembly was held in April, during which Mr. Edwin Steclcel demonstrated to the students the appreciation of music. The second aim of Pan-Hellenic has been to promote and maintain a friendly relationship with the student body and faculty, thus promoting the general welfare of the Niagara Falls High School. The government of the Society is entirely democratic as it features alternate chair- manship, unlimited debate, and equal voting povver. Regular meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month of the school year in Room 152. pan- Hellenic advisers are the faculty advisers of the various sororities and fraternities. Thus as years pass and the older students leave the management of atlairs to the inexperienced but energetic, matters change, ln Pan-l-lellenic too, there are changes, but nevertheless, the aims remain the same. Representatives are ditlerent but the fundamental ideals stay the same. Ninety-six ALPHA THETA KAPPA G. Weil E. Woods Mr. Polley R. DiMeo S. Rangatore F. Frank D. Yates R. Theal P. Dickinson R.

Tonavvanda Q0 Tron Q One Hundred Eight REVIEW OF SEASON They say this world is always changing but Niagara's luclc on the gridiron never seemed to change during the 1945-46 season. This season was highlighted by games which were almost won. lime after time the Red and Gray got the "bad breaks," and consequently ended the season with six losses and one tie. Although there were a Few returning lettermen, the team, as a whole, was green, but Filled with plenty ot spirit, Fight, and grim determination. Thus opened the football campaign. The boys opened the season in Tonawanda, losing a 19-O decision. Their next game with LaSalle showed more drive but "Lady l.ucl4,' did not deem it Fit that Niagara win, and with Niagara about to "knock on the golden gate," with only Five yards lor a touchdown, time ran out, ending the halt. The inspired Explorers scored a 6-O victory. Showing too much in the way of power and class, the Kenmore Blue Devils handed Niagara its third loss, Q7-7. Niagara was able to score its initial touchdown of the season, a run by DiMeo. Playing Laclcawanna the following weel4, Niagara's gridders lost a 6-O decision to the Steel City. This game was highlighted by a brilliant 75 yard touchdown run by Aidulc which was called baclc. ln the next game, the Niagara gridders held the Loclcport County Seaters to a 13-13 tie. A beautiful 60 yard touchdown run by Destino which would have decided the issue in our favor, was called back. ln the next home game, the North Tonawanda Lumberiaclcs scored a QO-6 victory over our boys. Fresh from their victory over Kenmore and holding sole possession of First place, the North Tonawanda team expected little competition from the winless Niagara gridders, but with the score tied at six all, Captain Mike Aidulc broke away for an 89 yard touchdown gallop which was called baclc. Aiclulc easily played his most spectacular game ot the season scoring Niagara's only touchdown on a 55 yard sprint. ln the Final game ot the season, Niagara was defeated by their traditional rival Trott, Q-O, A touchdown pass from Aidulc to DiDomizio was called baclc and Niagara lost.

This year we were able to Finish the season. The chances For a championship team this year were Hslim," but Niagara's sons are gradually acquiring valuable experience. Perhaps in a few years Niagara will be iustiiied in expecting a trophy-winning squad, as she Formerly had. This year, the team was coached by l'larolcl Cripe with assistance from George mlubbyn Gager, William Simpson was the captain and Richard Roush, the manager. The season opened with a 46-Q0 loss to a Hsterlingi' Kenmore squad. lt was a bad night lor Niagara as Bogers Hsnaggedn the only First place lor Niagara. Alter losing two more meets, to Tonayvanda and Amherst, Niagara beat Loclcport 40-25. Qur swimmers triumphed in all events except two individual races. Before Niagara beat North lonawanda, in a thrilling contest, in which Niagara came from behind to win by a 36-30 score, we were "ducked" again by Kenmore 39-27. The North Tonawanda victory was won by winning the relays in which Zastrow, Auman, Marlcelonis, Krueger, Theal, Bogers and Simpson participated. Niagara again tasted bitter defeat when our squad lost a decision to lonawanda, but then toolc revenge on the other "Twin City" by Hsmashingn N. T. to the tune ol a 40-Q6 score. Fresh from a loss to Amherst l-ligh, Niagara came out on top in the Loclcport contest. Simpson featured the 41-Q5 win by setting a new school record oi 9133.4 for the two hundred twenty yard free style race. Bogers and Hatalalc accounted for the other two places. At the Finals in Kenmore, our team Finished third, with seventeen points. Auman won the baclc strolce, Simpson Finished second in the two twenty tree style, Bogers and Zastrow came in third and fourth respectively, in the back strolce, and Zastrow, Auman and Simpson won once more-this time in the medley relay. The season, in many respects, was a successful one tor Niagara, and the squad is commended for their eitorts. One Hundred Eleven BASKETBALL Coach .... .................... B rainarcl N.

One Hundred Twelve REVIEW OF SEASON Starting the season with but one returning letterman, Coach "Doc" Rarsons managed to fashion a basketball team of championship calibre from the candidates that reported early last winter, a team that wound up the season with the Niagara Frontier League championship, Playoffs Championship, and Western New York A. A. This season marked "Doa, Parsons: twentieth year as head basketball coach, during which time his charges won 320 of 418 games for a won-lost percentage of .711. La5alle was the Falls' first victim and bowed by a 41 to 12 score. Tonawanda, last year's playoffs winners, dropped a 41 to 22 decision to the Red and Gray. ln their first real test of the campaign the locals squeaked through with a 42-40 win over an improved Kenmore five. Niagara suffered their first loss at the hands of a fast-breaking Lockport five, 35-34. North Tonawanda was the next victim, and they took a 36-26 licking on the Niagara Falls court. Next Lackawanna was handed a 32-30 setback on their own court in a tight game. -frott was next added to the list of Falls victims as they dropped a 41 to 32 decision. ln their second encounter with LaSalle, the Falls managed to win even more im- pressively than the first time, 59 to 11.1 With the first string playing a little over half the game, Niagara took an impressive win over a scrappy 'fonawanda five, 54-29. Kenmore again proved tough opposition and held the locals close in check until late in the third quarter when a quick flurry of Niagara baskets sunk them under 42 to 29. Lockport, the only team able to defeat the champions thus far, was soundly trounced 46 to 30.. North Tonawanda handed the Red and Gray one of their worst defeats in recent years as they knocked over the locals by a 35 to 26 score. Lackawanna again put up a hard battle before being defeated by a 33 to 31 score. ln the last game against lrott, Niagara emerged victorious, 37-35. ln the playoffs, Lockport was defeated in the first game. ln the championship tussle, the Red and Gray overcame all obstacles to win out, 38 to 22. A fitting climax to a great season came at Dunkirk when Niagara defeated James- town, 46 to 41, for the Western New York A. A. Sectional Championship.

Tower Front row: N. Lankton, B. Van Liew, K. Mack. BADMINTON About sixty-six girls from high school enioyed the girls' doubles badminton tourna- ment which was held in December. The tournament was divided into two groupsfone playing on Mondays and the other on Tuesdays. Kay Mack and janet Moore defeated Marie Parisi and Marilyn Murphy for the championship of the Monday group, while jean Tower and Betts Van Liew defeated Yvonne Fix and Rennie Ryan of the Tuesday group. ln the finals of the two days, Kay Mack and janet Moore defeated Jean Tower and Betts Van Liew. Last year a badminton tournament was also held in high school. This saw Betty Rohrer and ,lean Tower defeat Isabelle Sarlcissian and Mary Xigges for the school championship. Badminton tests in the eleventh grade showed that Amy Garrison, ,lean Schnitzer, and jane Silcora had highest scores. VOLLEY BALL With aching arms and sore wrists but plenty of spirit, the girls' volleyball season got off to a flying start in November, 1945. Each gym class formed teams which competed against each other during class time. The screaming and shouting heard during these games was an indication of how much the girls were enioying themselves. The captains of senior teams which won all their games were: Rose Morganti, Marilyn Murphy, Charlotte Rogers, Casimara Sobienialc, and Margaret Thompson. Way back in the year 1944, a volleyball tournament was held in high school. Several teams were formed which played each other during free fourth periods or else after school. At the end of the tournament the Zeta Sig team, captained by Betty Rohrer, was found to be the winner. This year volley ball tests were given to the tenth graders. The marks in these helped comprise part of the twenty weeks' mark in gym. One Hundred Seventeen BASKETBALL A Round Robin basketball tournament consisting ol teams from each grade was held after school during the month ot March. This was quite an unusual event be- cause girls' basketball has not been played in high school For many years. Six teams were entered from the tenth grade, eight teams from the eleventh grade, and four teams from the twelfth grade. The competition was keen between teams and all games were excellent. ln the playoffs the twelfth graders, captained by Betts Van Liew, put up a terrific battle against the tenth graders, but lost by a score ot 'l4 to 'lO. The tenth graders then went on to overcome the eleventh grade, "Bloomer Girls," captained by Dorothy Taczak, with a score of 'I7 to 9. Playing on the winning team were: Shirley Burford, captain, Beverly Carney, Evelyn D'Aurizio, janet Debbie, Sally Donnenwirth, Norma Hartwig, Jeanne Novak, ,lo-An Redmond, and Jo Anne rwhelan. KEEPING PHYSICALLY FIT Along with swimming and various physical Fitness tests given throughout the year, the girls certainly have kept in trim. The activities which were completed in the gym classes this year are badminton, volleyball, and apparatus tests on stall bars. The girls who stood out in the latter tests are: Joyce Hatch, Mary Ann Barnard, june Sauner, and Dorothy Curyto. All had a perfect score of twenty. Fundamental motor ability tests, basketball, and tennis tests were also given. The scores and rating acquired in these tests determined the marks on report cards. As for swimming, it is by tar the most healthful sport enioyed by the girls. Jean Rutherford, Lorraine Myers, Marcia Eglof, and Maxine Ritchie have advanced considerably in strokes since September. Margaret Case and Joan Parker are advanced in diving as well as in strokes. Swimming is participated in by many enthusiastic athletically-inclined girls. One Hundred Eighteen 1. Af Dunkirk. 2.

The story, written by Sir Arthur Pinero, tells of Qliver Bashlorth, a handsome fellow shattered by the war, and his love for Laura Pennington, a plain village girl whose only attraction is her thoughtfulness for others. The cast was as Iollowsz Qliver Bashlorth, ,Iames O'Connor, Laura Pen- nington, Barbara Honsbergerf Maior Murray I-Iillgrove, Lloyd Pattersoni Mrs. Minnett, Betty Anne Fieldf Mrs. Corsellis, Patricia Hallerf Rev.

SENIOR PLAY One Hundred Twenty one lin illlemnrtam 1930 1946 PI' '14 'B GEORGE ZELONIS 1929 1946 PI' PB 'If ELSIE LAMB A TRIBUTE . Very important indeed, is the cafeteria staff who pati Mr6'?er our tasty and appealing meals from day to day. We will always remember the cheerful service which we received at our high school. Perhaps we do not appreciate enough the effo rtwtheyf put' ferthftowti-elcleourpalateesfsaetrisfyeourf ' 'tu-mmies, 'f and thereby, help us to continue the day. This is nowhere more aptly expressed than in Owen Meredith's following lines: "We may live without poetry, music and art, We may live without conscience and live without heart, We may live without friends, we may live without boolcs, But civilized man cannot live without coolcsf, Day after day as we return to our classes we find cleanliness and good order which on many days turns to chaos by night. As we thoughtlessly discard papers or other refuse, we seldom stop to realize or appreciate the worlc of those who remove the traces of our carelessness. The corps of custodians, porters, and matrons who nightly tidy up after the day's confusion is an important and necessary group, frequently receiving little appreciation or praise. Now in our yearboolc which we shall carry away with us to refresh our minds with many pleasant memories in the years to come, we stop to pay tribute to those who so consistently and faithfully have made our school a clean and attractive place. 11.111 Nor must we forget the man who comes so early in the morning to see that we are warm in winter and comfortable in other seasons.
