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,
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.
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
Clubs and Organizations
E love thee, dear old l-ligh
With your halls ot learning grand.
Your colors we'll hold high,
lo the front weull proudly stand.
Always, always staunch and true,
Always, always proud ol youl
And your praises loud we,ll sing,
We to thee our homage bring.
Nine 'rahs tor Niagara Fallsl
Nine lor the Red and Grayl
To duty now she calls,
That success may with us stay.
So we pledge ourselves anew,
N. F. l-l. S., we'll be true,
And lor you we,ll climb the height.
Niagara, youlre all right.
A. Gow Brownell, "l4
There moved the multitude, a thousand heads:
The patient leaders of their Institute
Taught them with facts."

WILLIAM J. 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.
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
CLARK J. PEET if WILLIAM F. JACK
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
My best vvishes and sincere regards go with
you as you leave N. F. H. S.
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.

,I At last we are about to realize the goal for which we have striven these
three years. 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
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.

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,
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.

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
Qur thoughts will echo through the halls,
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
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,
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?

Seeing either the advantage or the necessity of graduating early, the January
graduates toolc an accelerated course, and completed their work in February instead
of in June. 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.

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.

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.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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

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
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
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.

The usher squad was formed in 1927 in the Niagara Falls l'ligh School. There was
a need for trained ushers since only reserved seats were sold. 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.
The regular usher squad consists oi June ScheFi, captain, Dora Bertoglio, Beverly
Goldstone, Lois Reisig, Mary Lasher, Eileen Abel, Eva DiCamillo, Darlene Schie-
man, Edith Novalc, Margaret Trapasso, Lottie Wach, Florence Rydzewslci, Dora

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
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.

The days oi the l"li-Y's in Niagara Falls date baclc to the 'l9QO's but they were not
strongly organized until about 1933. At that time there were not as many groups as

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
Today there are three l'li-Y groups operating in the Niagara Falls l'ligh School-
Beta, Alpha Delta, and Tobovi.

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.

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
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
ln the Final game ot the season, Niagara was defeated by their traditional rival

REVIEW OF SEASON
Last year, due to coal shortages, the Falls pools were closed, and consequently
Niagara did not complete its swimming schedule. 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
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
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.

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
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
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.

record that gave them a tie vvith Tonavvanda for the Frontier League Junior Varsity
The boys started oit the season in good fashion by vvinning three straight Irom
LaSaIIe, Tonawanda, and Kenmore, They then dropped a cIose one to Locicport
Q8-26, but came back strong from this setbacIc to taice another Five Wins beiore being
surprised by an improved Kenmore Iive on the Iatteris court, where they dropped a
cIose decision. After that they started another three-game win streak that was
snapped in the seasons close against Trott, a thrilling game that was decided by the

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
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
Badminton tests in the eleventh grade showed that Amy Garrison, ,lean Schnitzer,
and jane Silcora had highest scores.
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
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.

SENIOR AND JUNIOR PLAYS
In the past few years, enthusiastic audiences have seen entertaining comedies
presented by the senior classes. I-Iowever, this year's play changed style a bit.
Under the sI4iIIIuI handling and technical Icnowledge of Mr. I:ronI4 Baggallay, the
intensely dramatic lable Nlhe Enchanted Cottage" was presented to capacity
audiences on the nights of April 'I5 and 'I6. 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. Mr. Corsellis, David
Williamsf Mrs. Smallwood, Mariorie Walker, Mr. Smallwood, Joseph Taylori Rigg,
Thomas McMeeIcinf understudy, Elizabeth Osborn.
In November of 1945, the iunior play ",Ianey's Qne-Track Mindl' was presented.

glamour in ten easy lessons. The cast featured: slaney Browne, Louise Winshipf
Muriel Browne, Elizabeth Osbornf George Browne, James O'Connorf Bummy Post,

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.
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. He has never failed us.
