Man has been given the atom for a birthday present, and like a baby presented with a tiny teething ring, he doesn't know whether to use it to stop the pain caused by his new molars or to swallow it and choke himself out of existence. One is iust as easy as the other .... Yet, looking at the problem from the vantage point of youth, it all seems so simple. Of course, our atomic "teething ring" should be used to alleviate the suffering, the disease, the famine, the poverty, the "molars" of modern civilization. Of course, our unlimited power and knowledge should be used for the good of everybody. It's the human ideal! It's the open door to prosperity! Just walk through! . . . But many adults see the world through a mirror. "impractical hog-wash," they say. "Ridiculous dreaming! Make bombs and blow the devil out of any guy who makes a false move!" . . . And so, the confusion grows .... What's this got to do with us, Seniors of 1949? We ask. Plenty. Our actions will decide the life or death of this planet, our children, and even ourselves, perhaps. We're the baby with the teething ring! We make the choice .... That's what our '49 Niagarian portrays: the future world of atomic power and peace .... The atom is a looking-glass in which man sees himself. Will he see a rational human being or the last ofthe earth's great soulless animals? N . km' 2 ' .O .

Directly responsible to them are the super- intendent, the deputy superintendent, and the clerk who acts in the capacity of business manager. The members of the Board are appointed by the Mayor of the City of Niagara Falls. They serve for a tive- year term without remuneration. Dr. Charles M. Brent is president: Mr. William l.. Salacuse, vice-presidentg and Mr. Frank J. Lang, clerk. The other members are: Mr. A. M. Arney, Mrs. Mary L. Bialecki, Mr. Wesley L. Kester, Mrs. Edith M. Krakoski, Mr. Edward D. Mahoney, Mr. Stephen G. McMullen, and Mr. Arthur M. Silberberg. 7 DR. CHARLES M. BRENT President aclmlnlstration WILLIAM J. SMALL At no time has the future for American youth seemed so bright. We have been able to raise our standards of living for beyond those of any other country. Through recognition of individual rights we have learned to live and work together to a de- gree ot co-operative effort never before attained. We must not only cherish these privileges but we must also make every effort to preserve them. We must strive for greater understanding of the com- plex problems that lie ahead. We cannot hope to enjoy the privileges of American citizenship with- out actively and earnestly assuming its obligations. I have faith that you will do as well or even better than your predecessors. WILLIAM J. SMALL Supt. JAMES H. ERWIN First ot all, may l congratulate the Class of 1949 upon completion of their secondary school work. l hope that most of you will realize that, while a big part of your education has been completed, there is still much to learn and solve. You are entering the period of world atfairs where the problems are not only national but they must take in the whole world. That intensifies our responsibilities of learning what all the people in all the world must have to keep the world in a peaceful and success- ful position. JAMES H. ERWIN Dept.

'5i' T0 MEMBERS OF THE NIAGARIAN STAFF AND THE SENIOR CLASS ln CI recent issue of o current magazine there was an article about the rapid rise of a young scientist. During the war he was drafted to help develop the atomic bomb. He witnessed the explosion of the first one. He declared this terrible example of destruction and power had left him a "legacy of concern." His concern should follow only one path, ...that of helping to harness this great force for the good of all mankind. That same problem will face the young people of our high schools who will be graduated in the next few years. The challenge is clear. May the members of this class feel a great con- cern in helping to make constructive plans for the use of this force. Our best wishes ga with you. CLARK J. FEET T0 THE NIAGARIAN STAFF AND THE CLASS OF 1949 The theme for your yearbook indicates that you are aware of the responsibilities of living in an Atomic Age. One of your most important responsi- bilities in this new age will be that of helping to maintain a peaceful world, for without a peaceful world not much else will matter. Sooner than you expect, you will have the task of solving the great problems confronting your country and the world. We hope that the training which you have received, and the character which you have developed during your high school days will help yau to meet the challenge of the future. As you leave your Alma Mater our best wishes go with you. ' WILLIAM F. JACK WILLIAM F.

An active student, Helen was a member of the high school's orchestra and chorus and the Tri-Y club. At Gaskill Junior High she was a member of the Legion of Honor. Membership into the National Honor Society was awarded posthumously to Helen's family on October 28, l948. Helen's cheerful disposition won her many friends. A good student with a keen determination to go on despite a physical handicap, and a desire to develop her musical talent, especially with the violin, won her the admiration of both students and teachers. Danford Nichols died early this fall of iniuries he received when he dived into shallow water at one of the adiacent beaches. Danny had played an active part in all high school activities. He was always interested in all, and all were interested in him. His ambition and ready wit won him respect and friends wherever he went. Danny participated in all maior sports in North Junior High and at N. F. H. S. and was a layal member of the Gamma Sigma fratemity. We, the Senior Class of 1949, moum the absence of Helen and Danny tram our midst. Their memories will remain imprinted farever upon our hearts. Our deepest sympathy is sincerely extended to the families of our departed classmates. 57 class history "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women, merely players." . . . so was Niagara Falls High School the stage set for the entrance of the Class of '49. Act l .... We were first viewed over the faotlights in the role of sophomores in the year of l946. Under the direction of Mr. Crowie, our adviser, we lost no time in introducing our drama. The cast of characters that year was headed by Jack Viele, president of the class. He was ably assisted by Vincent Sullivan, vice- president, and Felix Palermo, secretary. Since we were new to the stage, we contented ourselves with a minor role, supporting the various school activities which included the student council, the senior play, and the school's athletic teams. Thus at the end of Act l the curtain fell upon an uneventful, yet successful sopho- more year. Act. ll .... After a brief intermission, we resumed our play, this time in the role of iuniors. With Mrs. Herges as adviser we elected Jack Perkins, president, Bob Dolan, vice-president, Bradley Cherenzio, secretary: and Steve Jarlenski, treasurer. We proved our worth as amateur thespians by producing Adam's Evening on November 13 and l4. Encouraged by this successful performance, we presented the Junior Class Variety Show in May. Rumors were circulated about having a iuke box in the cafeteria. However, they proved un- founded. Instead, a trio played soft dinner music in the auditorium above. A vigorous campaign was waged for the offices of president, secretary, and treasurer of N. F. H. S. The candidates, who were ficm the iunior class, organized into two parties. The Abolitionist Party pla tered the halls of the school with signs of the times: "Vote for Viele, Haynes, and Leo." On the other hand, the Cosmos ispelled backwards-scm sccl sported party shields emblazoned: "Vote for Perkins, Brad, and Truddy." The final result of the election: Perkins, Haynes, and Leo, an even split. Thus with an ever increasing partici- paticn in school activities giving hints of things to come, we rang down the curtain on Act ll. Act lll .... When the footlights dimmed and the curtains parted for the last act, the spotlight was focused on us, seniors now. During our last year, o change was made in the student council. Under the new plan each homeroom was given the name of a state with the representative of each bearing the title of governor. The 70th anniversary of the Chronicle was celebrated by an assembly featuring Hashbacks from previous years. It not only provided the student with humorous entertainment but it also promoted the sale of the school paper. This year N. F. H. S. was honored to receive the Lieutenant Torn Savage Trophy awarded for successful athletic competition. During the same program, members of the Red and Gray football team received their hard earned letters from our popular new coach, Mike O'Laughlin. We elected as our senior class officers: Tom Roberts, president: Dick Soluri, vice-president: Paul Donofro, secretary: and .loe DeSantis, treasurer. Mr. Reeser was chosen as our adviser. Under this leadership we sold magazine subscriptions to raise money for the senior class treasury. Many who buckled under the high pressure tactics of our salesmen can still be heard muttering such recriminations as, "Ten more years of Ski News . . . bah!" The last scene of Act lll found the entire cast, from the leading characters to the bit players, assembled on the stage for the flnal curtain . . . graduation. Our performance was concluded. Now as we return for our curtain call, we can look back on the three acts, our three years at N. F. H. S. They have been pleasant and fruit- ful. At the same time we must always be thinking of what tomorrow holds for us and constantly planning for it. This is aptly illustrated by an ex- ujt I . - :I i, 5.11: cerpt from Jules Jusserand's farewell address to America .... "Remember li I: l X" , "-l ' ' ..

The youngest is the "ripe old age" of l6 years. If you find, while walking through our hallowed halls, that the maiority of our seniors have brown hair and eyes, you are correct. It has been proven that 360 have brown hair, 77, blonde, 39, black, and a lagging 14 with red tresses. We have one senior whose head is in the clouds. This aviator stands 6 feet 4 V1 inches, while our most down to earth, reaches the height of 4 feet TOV2 inches. Every morning 166 of us patronize the I. R. C., 256 wear out our shoe leather, while a select 99 travel in style-in the family automobile. Our two most modern students Hy. Rising with the sun, one early bird emerges from his boudoir at 5 a.m. to milk the cows. The average Joe and Jane rise at 7:30 a.m., and this comes pretty early for some of our "night hawks" who admit sneaking into the hause at 1:30 a.m. on school nights. The remaining group of wide awoke students crawl into bed at ll p.m., although we do have a "wise one" who goes to bed at 7 p.m., lafter Dick Tracyl. Due to the fact that we are ordinary fun-loving youths, 99 44fl0OW-, of us enioy night life, ranging from movies and dances, to iust plain visiting, about four times a week. One in our midst stretches the week into eight fun-filled days. According to our questionnaires, our most sought-after teachers land men rank high over womenl are those who teach social studies and English, while those from which students shrink are teachers of languages and Science. Of interest to the fashion-minded set is the fact that 501, of our student body prefer high necklines and long skirts, while the remaining 5095 cry, "short skirts and low necklines." Again, as in previous years, basketball leads our sports parade by a wide margin, and dancing offsets this physical exercise as our favorite pastime. Although it is not yet spring, love seems to be blooming in all its glory in our Alma Mater. We are happy to say that one of our group has sought married bliss, 2l have not yet taken the fatal plunge, and l49 of our "love birds" are going steady. Although this may come as a iolt ta some of our teachers, 991, of us hockey classes. The favorite hangout proved to be the "iohn." Five of our more adventurous students travel to Buffalo on their "clay ot?." A meager 257, are lucky enough to drive their own cars, but, fortunately, only 276 of them have been involved in accidents. You might have guessed-5042, of us daydream in study hall, while the remaining sow, actually do homework. Strangely enough, classical music and pie top our list of "likes." N. F. H. S. local representative of Lana Turner has been found to be a brunette, with blue eyes, about 5 feel' 4 inches tall, and weighing l25 pounds. This year the trend seems to be toward the home type, so, girls, if you want to get your man, be sweet, natural, smart, and neat. According to the opposite sex, the girls' ideal has brown wavy hair, blue eyes, stands at the heavenly height of 6 feet, possessed shoulders like "Atlas," and owns a car. After having compiled this information we hope that the students of N. F. H. S. are well informed as to the characters of the never-to-be- forgotten Class of '49.

Your sad soothsayers were knocking their heads against the freshly-painted walls of High School, when to our rescue came Captain Marvel Lawrence with his famous time machine. We stepped in and were whirled away to the land of the future. The first thing we noticed was the change of weather-NIAGARA FALLS, WINTER PLAYGROUND OF THE STARS! lt was warm! The streets were covered with palm trees and orange blossoms, beautiful girls in bathing suits were walking up and down the boardwalk. Preparing for the Miss America contest were: Marty Van Loan, Mary Dusher, Donna Cuttaia, Delores Ciambrone, Joyce Wisbaum, and Mae George. We hired one of the new all-glass DeFranco and Moesta taxis driven by Joe Sansalone, Jr. As we drove down Esenwein Avenue we passed Amato's Unique Barbershop and through the window we could see Theresa Appoloney, Laura Fernandez, and Mary Ann D'Anna, lady barbersp polishing Jack Viele's fingemails was Roland Rosati. A screech of brakes was the first warning we had that Bill Fermoile was in the vicinity. As he skidded by, we could see Bobbie Pinkowski, Harold Holman, and Vicki Maniago, all in the front seat. We passed several souvenir and prune juice stands owned by the Stack-Shapiro syndicate. The drug stores appeared to be owned by the Tavano and Haman monopoly. Curious to find out what had happened to N. F. H. S. over the years, we walked in the front door and were amazed to flnd students leisurely sitting in lounges. There were escalators, and sweet be-bop music was being played over the loudspeaker system. Dick Soluri and Alice Cripe, on a two-seated pogo-stick, hopped past us. lt seems that they had been serving "time." Opening the door marked "Principal," we found Molly Silbergeld sitting at the desk, dictating two letters at the same time to Marie Ferro and Anne Morton, while Antoinette Rangatore answered the phone. In the midst of the confusion we noticed the colors of the room-sky-blue pink with purple rabbits! Finally Molly looked up and recognized us. It seems that we came to school much too early-for the TEACHERS!-Mary Pokarney, Mary Lou Scibilia, Joan Kelly, Hazel Graham, Jack Perkins, and Donald Burhyte had just walked in. We decided that we needed refresher courses. We bade them a fond farewell and continued our sight- seeing. We soon spotted the Jepsen laboratory where the famous nuclear flzzes, Fred Koperski, Charles Kla- bunde, and Jan Richelsen, had iust perfected the famous atom-fertilizer, guaranteed to make Carl Ablett grow! looming up ahead of us was the most modern building in the city, the Medical Arts Building, and the new railroad station constructed by the Duddy and Leissle contractors. Here was located the famous Cheren- zia-Childs Clinic. Among the many intemationally known doctors connected with it were Richard Rovner, M.A.D., Betty Pauline, C.U.T.E., Theodore Casamento, the world's only turtle specialist, and Florence Rymer, famous female philanthropist. We passed door marked: Domonic Falsetti, chicken dentist, Jenkins and Morreale, Veterinarians: and the Research Laboratory of Belden and Herowski, where these two men were devoting their lives to the field of JEANS-McDonald, Ashby, Peron, and Durfy. We ordered the cob to circle the outskirts of the city where the Brain University was located lco-ed, of coursel. The driver told us that Dean Manker and his vice, James Lindsay, had a staff of Niagara Falls High School alumni. Professor of Darby College of Musical Knowledge was Irv Long. The physical education department was headed by Randy Rice and Gloria Brandon, famous All-American badminton players. Professor of colloquial English, slang that is, was "Bumper" Movesian while director of the choral groups was Stella Wrobel. Other noteworthy professors were John Burroughs, Joan Conrad, Jardine Skoff, and Barbara Worry. A few furlongs past the university was the scientific form of Jimmy Kydd with his right-hand man, "farmer" Metzler. His partner, "Hayseed" Camann, had quit a few weeks earlier as he declared farming methods were getting too modem for him. We decided to enter the barn where we discovered a record of the melodious voice of Jimmy Spina was being played as encouragement for the cows' milking. To our amazement, in the chicken coop, the hens were laying eggs by the thousands to the tune of Joe DeSantis' iokes. As we drove away, the milk maids, Phyllis Belishuk, Jeanne Fink, and Dorothy Dorochak, bade us fond farewell. Ah! these modern farms. 60 Re-entering the city, we came upon Shahin's Showboat Cafe where we were greeted by the bouncer, Patsy Allender, who threw us to a ringside table. We ordered the specialty ofthe day-"Pill A-La Capsule on TOAST"-from the waiter, Eugene Janik. The house lights dimmed and a hush fell over the audience. The M. C., John Grana, introduced the parade of stars. The flrst number was an exotic dance by Katies Chorus, Katy Clay, Katy Roussi, Katy Giles, Katy Curry, Katy Graves, and Katy Wallace. Next was an acrobatic act with Gerard Alvarez and Bruce Andrew, followed by Bob Borks and his twenty mule team. The last act was the "aff-key" quartet with Queenie Beclrasian, Mary Cunningham, Charles Kracht, and Duane Johnson. At the conclusion of the show, the M.C. had famous celebrities at the ringside introduced, among them, Diane Dawe, Metropolitan Opera Star, Chief Justice of the U. S., Paul Zatulcve, Bonnie Haynes, first woman Governor of New York State, the glamorous movie star, Ada Cochrane, the Bill Heils, the flrst family of the city, and his in-laws, the Macks, and Marshall Meyers, cartoonist of the local newspaper-the "Palumbo Gazette." Leaving the cafe and looking for some more laughs, we drove past the Budrow Memoriam Grounds. At the grounds was the Barr-Baia Carnival. Through our inliuence with the manager, Aurelius Fernandez, Jr., we were admitted for 52.00 instead of the usual dollar and a half. We were pushed into the Sideshow and on the platforms we noticed many peculiar sights: the thineman, Tom Roberts, and the fat lady, Lorraine Pethybridgeg the strong man, Clayton Robinson, going through his strenuous routine of busting threads with his bare hands--two-at-a-time, the Siamese twins, Margaret and Mary Suhanski, and the fire-eater, Ann Coyle. Above our heads we saw a monkey swinging by his tail with a camera in his hands. "Hi-Ya, Bahlmann," we hallered. Lying an a bed of needles was Roger Dodimead, Lo and behold-a man with ten arms- Tom Freeburg. As we were on our way out, we were astounded when we saw an emergency crew trying to get Janet Atkison out of the barrel of the cannon. They told us that most of the crowd had gone as they had been there three hours already. Barclay, the barker, then drew our attention to o hot dog, before we took the cab back to the Deloisio Radio Station where the famous quil show, "Say lt Or Play lt," was taking place. The quiz master was interviewing the first contestant, Walter Popovich. When he couldn't answer who the principal of N. F. H. S. was in '49, he had to play his violin. When he began, so did we, for the door. The stampeding audience from that studio carried us like leaves in the wind to a room marked, "Amelia Sarkees," woman commentator. We entered iust in time to hear her say, "Good-evening, ladies and gentlemeni "Flash! Quintuplets were born to Mr. and Mrs, Robert Dolan today. lt is reported that he immediately rushed to Darrall's Sport Center and bought flve basketballs. "Professors Vanderhoek and Danofro have iust returned from a trip to the moon and they plan to open up a green cheese factory. "Police Commissioner, James Beanblossom, today ordered a routine check-up to be made concerning Dr. Mike Yandian and his aid, Margaret Fielding, and the Dick-Toole-Eaton Undertaking Establishment who are believed to be working hand-in-hand on a 50-50 basis. "And now a slight pause for only a few thousand words from our sponsor." We, being allergic ta commercials, left the studio, and walked out into the night air--when suddenly from out of the past came the thundering machine. The soothsayers ride again, back to '49, to end their memorable high school daze in the halls of our dear Alma Mater, days which will be lacked in our golden book of memories forever.

As leaders of the world and peace, we have, in this Atomic Age, a great and heavy load to carry. We have been taught the ideals of democracy and fair play, and it is up to us, as a minute particle of the youth of the world, to help spread these cherished ideals. We shall try, to the best of our ability, to accomplish this great task. We should like to express our sincere thanks to the following: First, to the teachers who have guided us and helped us with the deepest of understanding. Throughout our sophomore, iunior, and senior years, they have extended a helping hand that has made vs surmount the problems of youth, and that has directed us to the paths of success. Secondly, to the friends whose fellowship we have enioyed in these hollowed halls of learning. We hope that this friendship shall not be dissolved after graduation. Finally, to Niagara Falls High School where some of the best days of aur lives have been spent. Although we look forward to graduation, with pride and humility, we also look forward with a touch of regret, And so proceeding toward the future, we turn to bid one last farewell to the faculty and our classmates, and to take one last look at our beloved Senior High. With genuine pleasure and pride, "Class of 50," l present ta you the Mantle of Red and Grey. lt is a hopeful expectation of great things you are capable of accomplishing. May you hold this Mantle dear, and add to it a distinction and honor, which will set a high goal and inspire the future classes of this institution. THOMAS ROBERTS President, Class of '49 iunior class response With deep gratitude and sincere appreciation to the Senior Class, l, as representative of the class of l950, am happy to accept the symbol of seniority, the Mantle of Red and Grey. College and industry seem near in the closing days of high school and the Seniors are becoming aware of the new responsibilities which will face them. However, with good high school records behind them, our graduates can look with confldence to the future. At the some time, it is necessary to remember that high school graduation is not regarded as the end of education, but merely a stepping stone towards higher endeavors. The Seniors are a united group with high ideals of loyalty and devotion lo our school. The Junior Class is confronted with the task of upholding the traditions of the school. lf it maintains the spirit of co-operation and good workmanship so apparent in this Senior Class it will not find the task too di5icult. It is with best wishes for good luck and happiness to the members of the Senior Class that we, as next year's Seniors, accept this responsibility.

Last year we were only 288 in number from North Junior, but we made ourselves known in sports and other functions. This year many students immigrating from South Junior and Gaskill added to our tiny class, making the membership now 577. Our class adviser, Miss Jeannette Wylie, aided us greatly with our annual play, "A Case of Springtime," an entertaining comedy presented in December. The annual Junior Class Variety Show was presented during May exhibiting our versatile talents. To the Senior Class we extend sincere congratulations and best wishes. To the incoming Junior Class we extend a hearty welcome. As seniors, we shall follow in the footsteps of the preceding senior classes. We shall sincerely try our best to live up to all the standards and traditions of Niagara Falls High School. "What we have done for ourselves dies with us, what we have done for others and the world, remains." With this goal in mind we shall strive for greater achievement during our senior year of l950. lun Row: R. Anton, R. Belounv, F. Bongiovanni, H. Brooks, T. Shumwuy, W. Carlxan, F. Field, T.

Home-rooms were no longer the conventional 105, 212, 450 but were California, Oklahoma, or Missouri. Homeroom representatives and alternates quickly became the "governors" and "lieutenant-governors" of the various states. The highlight of the year was the vigorous campaign for the vice-presidency of the school, patterned after notional party nominations. On election day, the auditorium was f1lled with hundreds of excited "politicians," each sitting in his own state "bloc," designated by an uproisecl sign. On the stage were the candidates, Glenn Tillyou, Jerry Holder, and Douglas Wilson, together with the huge tally-board and tellers equipped with adding machines. As the roll-call at states was read ali, each governor rose in tum and proclaimed his state's ballots. While disgruntled "Dixiecrats" from South Carolina filled the air with confetti, and countless Flashbulbs blinded the crowd, Jerry Holder was announced our new vice-president. Among the student Council's accomplishments were two suc- cessful dances, contributions to the Junior Red Cross and Com- munity Chest Campaigns, intramural basketball, the mainte- nance of the Sportsmanship Council, panel discussion an comic books, ond contributions to CARE. Also bus tickets were made available to the students. Officers of the Student Council are os follows: President, Jack Perkins, Vice-President, Jerry Holder, Secretory, Bonnie Haynes, Treasurer, Freddie Leo. Thanks to the efforts of these officers with their adviser Edmond J. Skimin, N. F. H. S. became better known in the community for its welfare and social services rendered. Standing: Mr. Skimin, G.

Members were inducted in October at a breakfast. ln February the group played host to the LaSalle chapter at a banquet at the Samovar Restaurant. Additional members were inducted in March at an im- pressive assemhly. A motion picture was sponsored as a money-making proiect. Maintenance of the school clinic and management of the corridor patrol are among the organization's functions. A picnic with its tra- , V ditionol baseball game and delicious food completed the year. Olricers during the first semester were: Marshall Meyers, president, Bradley Cherenzia, vice-president, Amelia Sarkees, secretary, and Margaret Vitello, treasurer. At the mid-year Mike Yandian was elected president, Anna DiGiovine, vice- presidenty Mary Nassoiy, secretary, and Theresa Appoioney, treasurer.

Gone are the "buttons and bows" which characterized the first editions of l879. Now the Chronicle must play a new, realistic role without sacrificing its high school flavor. In the year l9A9, Joyce Palumbo and Paul Zatulove have worked as co-editors-in-chief with associate editors Richard Rovner, news stattg Molly Silbergeld, literary editor, Irvin lang, sports editor, Joy Sidenberg, circulation manager, Anna DiGiovine, business manager, and star reporters, Peter Budakian, Aurelius Fernandez, Richard Weil, Bernard Zublcoff, Bill Ellison, Margaret Neville, and Mary Pokorney the iournalism classes, and Donna Cuttoia, typist. The Chronicle's chief praiects this year have been in promoting a nominating convention for the election of school officers and 7 an assembly commemorating this year as the Chronicle's 70th anniversary since 1879.

Sezond The earnest efforts of several of our teachers and fellow students have gone into the making of our Niagarian for l949. All looked boldly ahead to the future that is bound up with us in selecting the "Atomic Age" as the yearbook theme. ln carrying the theme through the pages of the Niagarian, the staff hoped to make our yearbook both meaningful, enioyable, and inspiring. The school yearbook was an issue of the Chronicle before l93l, when it first was made a separate pub- lication called the Niagarian. This year's yearbook features an outstanding maroon and silver cover and bold black and white division pages, in keeping with the futuristic theme. Among the innovations featured in the yearbook for l949 are "Yesterday and Today" with pictures of members of the Senior Class in baby- hood and as seniors, and a "Roving Reporter" column of student views. Guiding the yearbook organization were Marshall Meyers, editor-in-chief, Ronald Lauzau, associate editor-in-chief, Mr. James Bongiorno, faculty adviser, and Mr. Perry Brown, assistant faculty adviser. feature staff Row: J.

At its first organization meeting in November, the representatives of these various music groups elected Janet Atkison as president, Angelo LaPorta as vice-president, Ralph Vescio as secretary, and Jennie Schiro as treasurer. The various music groups have enioyed a successful year. The band entertained the students here in school with the assemblies, and also played at South Junior. They cheered on our football team, too, playing at all home games. The various Associated Music Clubs have performed together on many occasions. The highlight of the season was their annual spring concert. The orchestra and the A Cappella Chorus performed at the Commencement exercises in June. The orchestra and band played for the Junior Class Play. These ioint activities also covered the amusement side. At Christmas, a rousing party was held in the music room where everyone present had fun playing games and dancing to records. The'school year was concluded by a picnic in June filled with plenty of sports and food. These happy hours spent at work and play by the Associated Music Clubs were made possible through the directing of Mr. W. A. Scotchmer and Mr. C. B. Emert. -J ., . . .rs , r .. ..,. .. .,XQ,.B, ii?

We were given our first opportunity to hear the band when it presented a pep assembly to honor the football team. Shortly after, an assembly of modern compositions was pre- sented at South .lunior before a capacity audience. Having received word of its abilities, the Rotary Club requested the band to play at one of its meetings at the Hotel Niagara. To round out the season, the band presented a concert at Stella Niagara, receiving much praise and recognition for its performance. 81 I , ' 'hi' QXJN N . , C3,c .ny I pl.. X.. ' Capella J. Adams, O.

Truly, they deserve credit for their hard work and untiring efforts. This year the Stage Crew under the direction of Miss Mary E. McDougall and Mr. Robert l.. Cooley, have etticiently taken care of scenery, props, clever lighting effects, and the carefree timing of curtains. They have contributed much of their extra time to prepare and decorate the stage for the iunior and senior plays. Members of the stage crew are: Bruce Andrew, William Barclay, Anna DiGiovine, Arthur Evans, James Huer, Donald Jepsen, Victor ladouceur, James MacKenzie. Walter Popovich is the stage manager and Herbert Liebig is his assistant. Ca-workers and helpers to the stage crew are the members of the Proiection Staff. They have the iob of handling the public address system, playing records, and showing movies and slides in the auditorium and in the classrooms. With Mr. William Crowie to guide them, they have played a very important part in the Thanksgiving skit, and the numerous variety shows. Members ot the Projection Staff are: Sally Austin, William Barclay, Gordon Bolton, Anna DiGiovine, Phylis Fraser, Victor Ladouceur, Herbert Liebig and Gerard Warfield. These students are the ones who pulled the switches, climbed the ladders, pounded the nails, burned their fingers on the hot spotlights, opened curtains. They are the students who, in overalls and dust-stained shirts, made possible the fine stage productions which we saw this year. , . v g 115' ' ggmslc, wg:-lg' Q f ilfr 1:., ----f I . :'Q1l'2 T ' -.- . de' ' ,.

The Ush The members ofthe squad serve at annual events of the school, such as the iunior and senior plays, concerts, the variety show, and at baccalaureate and commencement exercises. The girls also render their invaluable assistance at general teachers' meetings, the lectures of the Public Forum, and other community programs and performances taking place at Niagara Falls High School. On these occasions the girls help with the sale and collection of tickets, the distribution of programs, and with the smooth functioning of the seating of the audience. Miss Lucy Massimilian has been faculty adviser for the past year. She l has been ably assisted by Phyllis Belishuk, captain, who has greatly helped the squad to maintain its standard of service. The captain and all the squad members are to be commended on the excellent iob they have done. yjwa 84 school store The bookstore, which is lodged between the office and clinic, serves a demanding purpose. It is a familiar and welcome sight to those who need school supplies. The stat? consists of Georgia Shahinian, Rose Hovivian, Shirley l.utey, Helen Schultz, June Noble, and Don Myers. When Miss Emma Hulen, the original founder, organized the school store, the sole purpose was to provide o service ta the students and a means of raising funds for the Student Council. The same principles are ap- plied today. When Mr. Jack came to N. F. H. S. he was given complete responsibility of the store. ln i945 the adviser- ship was given to Miss Virginia Donohue. Merchandise includes notebooks, two and three ring paper, pencils, erasers, ledger and iournal paper and folders, two and three ring paper having the greatest volume of sales. ln l947, an additional service was provided. A lost and found department was established in the store. This has aided many students in recovering articles. The purchasing of the service flag, displayed on the second floor opposite the assembly, was made possible several years ago by funds 'USQQ 1 raised through the school store. , On December 2, the Student Council and the staff of the school store ,gl 0 sponsored the presentation of Donald Scott-Morrison, a famed pianist 5 6 and impersonator.

O'Brien, senior stenographer, has helped both students and faculty. A few of her duties include making out students' transcripts for colleges and iobs, requisitions for materials needed in school and she is in charge of all official cor- respondence. She is in charge of diplomas, financial statements, and permanent record cards, also. A newcomer to the omce stat? is Miss Doraine Sonzio, who was a member ofthe i948 graduating class af N. F. H. S. Her main duty is to check all absentees from class and make out the weekly, monthly, and annual attendance reports. She compiles and mimeographs the weekly bulletin and supervises the staff of students who assist her, collecting the blue sheets and morning attendance cards. The switchboard and pro- gram cards are also under her supervision. R. Rosati, M. Klrchue, D- Sanrlv. Sally Childs, Diane Dowe, Faye Johannes, and Margaret Voutour collect the blue attendance sheets every clay. Gloria Porto, Norma Roscetti, Rosemary Piscioneri,and Theresa Perri collect the attendance cards in the morning. Roland Rosati and Carol Hermanson have the task of alphabetizing the list of absent students. Mary Kirchue types up the absence sheets and sorts mail. Few people have seen the inside of the school vault which contains the records of all students who have been graduated from high school and records of all students who have left school before graduation. It contains duplicate report cards of all students now in school and a master keyboard with keys to all locks. In the main office are the mail boxes tor teachers, the teachers' bulletin board, the master clock, card catalog, switchboard, desks for stenographers and a desk for excuses and tardiness, where a teacher is in charge every period. ln an adioining room is the mimeograph machine and the school store.

"A Case of Springtime," a comedy in three acts by Lee Sherman, was presented by the Junior class on December 7. Under the direction of Miss Mary McDougall, a fine performance was given by the hard-working members ofthe cast. The plot concerned the troubles of a high school boy, Bob Parker, turned magician in order to regain the attention of Joan Abemaker, the principal's daughter, who was more interested in dates with college boys. Bob Utterly fails as a magician, and flnds himself in more difficulties than he had bargained for. By ruining the tuxedo belonging to Mr. Abernaker, and failing chemistry, Bob is in trouble with both faculty and his family, not to mention Joan. A minor calamity occurs when members of the Parent-Teachers Association arrive at the Parker home to register complaints against Bob. The humor in this scene is provided by the kid brother, Dickie Parker, and his girl friend, Gwen Anderson. However, all ends happily and Joan and Bob flnd mutual interest once again. The cast of characters was as follows: Bob Parker, Stanley Horab, Mr. Parker, Avrom Levy, Mrs. Parker, Barbara Sheldon, Betty Parker, Elizabeth White, Dickie Parker, lgnazio LaPresti, Gwen Anderson, Anita Ulla, Joan Abernaker, Marcia Weeks, Eddie Abernoker, Glenn Tilyoup Lauella, Barbara Bryant, Mr. Abernaker, Daniel Clayton, Mrs. Bruns- wick, Joanne Little, Mrs. James, Sally Jeckovich, Mrs. Hill, Jean Salacuse, Plainclothes Man, the "Law," James MacKenziep and Miss Bright, from the Zoo, Mary Lau Buehl.

The unequalled work of the Junior Red Cross in our school is proat that it has not only become a worthwhile part of our school administration but also an integral pqart of the inter-school Red Cross council. ' Under the guidance of Miss Britton, assisted by Miss Werner, and the three representatives to the city-wide council, Joy Sidenberg, president, Fred Forrester, treasurer, and Phyllis Belishuk, the program commenced with the election of officers. Amelia Sarkees was elected president, Elizabeth White, vice-president, Amel Kinan, secretary, Ann Mack, treasurer, and Vivian Maniago, reporter. They all did a noteworthy iob. ln November, the members were called upon to assist in the city x-ray campaign, sponsored by the tuberculosis center. They not only worked in mobile units stationed throughout the city, but also delivered informative pamphlets to all houses in the DeVeaux section. ln the annual drive for funds, held in January of this year, the school exceeded its goal by obtaining the high total of S'l5'l.00. lt was due to the excellent publicity campaign, under the chairmanship of Jerry Haman, and the ardent persuasion of the council members, that so commendable a sum was able to be rasied. All those students who contributed to the drive automatically became members of the National Junior Red Cross. During Christmas, three members went ta Batavia to help decorate the Veterans' Hospital for the Yuletide Season. Other activities for the hospital included a variety show presented in March. The talent for this, such as other entertain- ment, was part at a reserve list of talent which we used in emergencies whenever such entertainment was needed at various hospitals, old-folks homes, or schools throughout the county. This committee was headed by Tom Duddy and Fred Forrester, Many volunteers assisted at Red Cross Headquarters during the pre- parations for the Senior drive by counting and sorting various material. .S The council sponsored a Red Cross home nursing class held at Memorial I 4 we ' Hospital and over twenty girls earned their home nursing certificates.

Study of them helps us to take our places in this modern world. Two hundred and fifty new books are added each year to the five thou- sand books already in our school li- brary. Our library subscribes to forty magazines of varied appeal, a collec- tion of college catalogs is available, and fine encyclopedias offer unlimited advantages for study and research. Miss Della Hutson, school librarian, with the assistance of twenty-three girls, helps the students take advantage of the varied library materials. The library is a pleasant place where education is an enioyment and inspira- tion.

Since early October, the Science Club, with Robert Brain as president, Charles Klabunde as vice-president, and Vee Houseman as secretory-treas- urer, has been actively operating under the guidance of Mr. Benson as sponsor. ln order to ioin the club, under the new constitution, one must possess a keen interest in the advancement of science together with a few courses of high school science. Prospective mem- bers can flnd facilities for experimenta- tion and investigation by joining the club. Members are allowed full use of the chemistry laboratory facilities where they work out proiects according to their individual interests, Many useful inventions have been developed by the student members of the club with re- sults in the fields of chemistry, physics, and biology. palette and brush The Palette and Brush Club is com- posed of a small but active group of students who are interested in the de- velopment of their talents along the different lines of art. Their meetings offer the student the stimulation of working with fellow artists. Various techniques are used by the members including soap carving, water color and oil painting, wood carving, charcoal drawing, and modeling in clay. The meetings are held each Wednes- day after school and are open to any- one who is interested in art. Donald Burhyte is the president, Evelyn Ricketts is secretary-treasurer, and Mr. Murray McKaig is the adviser. 90 lout Row: G. Tatoian, P. Budaklan, Mr. McKaig, S. Kreamer, E.

Star. , forensic society The Forensic Society, one of the longest-established N. F. H. S. organizations, was founded by a group of energetic students for the purpose of fostering fellowship and developing ability in public speaking. Through the years, the society has maintained a high standard of achievement, and has played an im- portant role in building future leaders. The 1949 members viewed with pride the accomplishments of their predecessors, and determined to uphold the fine record, while it was in their hands. With the indispensible help of Mr. Mark Bedford, the faculty adviser, the members maintained this ideal throughout a successful year. The otTicers for the first semester were as follows: Robert Brain, president, Paul Zatulove, vice-president, Richard Weil, secretary, and Richard Rayner, treasurer. For the second semester, the officers were: Paul Zatulove, president, Robert Brain, vice-presidentg Kenneth Lawrence, secretary: and John Burroughs, treasurer. At the meetings, held every second Wednesday evening at the homes of the members, good fellowship formed the background, while the emphasis was on public speaking, debate, and group discussion. The wide variety of program subjects included current topics such as the presidential campaign and the Berlin crisis, as well as general topics such as school spirit, and the education system. To assure the complete absence of monotony of meetings, the type of program also was varied. Debates, informal discussions, outside speakers, wire-recordings of short talks, impromptu speech contests, ond com- petitive tests, were included in the year's calendar. Among the special proiects this year was the presentation of an educational radio program over WHLD. The members of the Forensic Society realized that its continued success depends primarily upon the natural ability and enthusiasm of the various members. With this fact in mind, try-outs for membership were held twice during the year, and each time a well-qualified group of new members was added. lt is generally agreed that, in our complex world of today, in order to become a leader in almost any field, a person must be a good speaker, To find out whether the converse is also true, i.e., whether good speakers become leaders, the '49 members organized a tile containing data about former Forensic Society members. The data showed a goodly percentage of the Forensic alumni to be well on the road to c s 1 a f top, in many fields. This year's members liked to think of this tile as a crystal ball that showed wh t their future might hold for them. A typical attitude was expressed by one member, who said, "l only hope l have done h Ja mupklof ff I the Forensic Society as it has done for me." Ivy 1,4 ji Alf! 91 M Back Row: L. Bax, C.

Long, Miss Mitchell, M. McPherson, R. Shahin. Elections held in September resulted in Dick Soluri, chairman, Roberta Pinkowski, vice-chairman, and Mae McPherson, secretary-treasurer. When the ballots were counted after the first ten week term, the chairman was Roberta Pinkowski, the vice-chairman was Dick Soluri and Leona Bax was secretary-treasurer. February elections began with Roberta Pinkowski, again, as chairman, Harold Olander as the new vice-chairman, and Virginia Long as the new secretary-treasurer. ln September the laws concerning pledging, initiated last year by Pun Hellenic members, with the approval of Mr. Peet and the organizations, were again in force. These rules concerned the length of the pledging period, dates for the rushes to be held, and general standards for pledging. These agreements helped to curtail the amount of vicious hazing which has been going an, yet allowed the members to satisfy their feelings or opinions in a more mature manner. Scholarship was also highly stressed in Pan Hellenic this year. In the past, sororities had informally con- ducted competitions each ten weeks, by submitting their averages to the other four organizations. However, it was decided to try to get all the groups into this program. A few special meetings were held with Miss Mitchell and a selected committee to organize the program. They decided to erect a plaque in the Pan Hellenic box onthe tlrst floor in front of the cafeteria and, each January and June, to place two plates with the names of the sorority and fraternity having the highest averages for the preceding semester on them. The annual Pan Hellenic assembly in the spring provided educational entertainment for all. The members representing their organizations for the year were: Beta Alpha Sigma, Leona Bax and Doris DeRin, Theta Lambda Chi, Mae McPherson and Joanne Barber, Theta Xi Upsilon, Roberta Pinkowski and Sue Pu rant- Zeta Sigma Epsilon, Marcia Weeks and Janice Clayton, Zeta Tau Iota, Mary Jane Eades, Cornelia McConnell, and Virginia Long, Alpha Theta Kappa, Frank Farina and Dick Saluri, Gamma Delta Psi, William Fermoile and Harold Holman, Gamma Sigma, Harold Olander and Fred Forrester, Sigma Psi, Bob Dolan and Carl DeFranco. pan hellenic pianissimos V A relatively new organization to enter the halls of Niagara Falls High is the "Pianissimos." The name of this organization originated from a song of the some name popular at the time, "Pianis- simo." The members, through the organization, are trying to promote good fellowship, curb iuvenile delinquency, and racial and religious discrimination. A member added: "To form a more perfect fraternity ond brotherhood for the enlightenment of ourselves and others." Organization of this fraternity took many months of planning, meeting, and hard effort. lt was in May, I948, when the venture was first undertaken as the boys wanted to keep in contact with each other during the summer vacation. It was Neil Fitzgerald who flrst came upon the idea of getting together as an organization. His suggestion was unanimously approved and "Pianissimos" came into being. At flrst the sole purpose was to have good times. After serious thinking the members began to plan their meeting, to hold elections, and to debate the dihierent current issues. A moderator was needed for the debates and Mr. Leo Waznak, on interested party, kindly accepted the invitation to ioin the group. They began to hold regular meetings in members' homes. During the latter port of the summer, meetings were recessed as it was vacation time. ln September, meetings were resumed but things were greatly out of order. After two to three months, another interested person, Mrs. D. W. Van Allan, agreed to help. Soon the members will be high school graduates on their way to colleges and iobs but as the president stated, "Once a pianissimo, always a pianissimof' This good fellowship will never be forgotten. Members hope to carry the organization far into the future and have another chartered to fallow. A great man once said: "A good doctor, in curing a disease, delves into its source." Under- standing among all people is the only road to peace and happiness. J 2 gg' , K i, -v - : . -1. 1,1 . ,, Q. - N. Fltlgorald J. Adam! .. W ' Q. sy , , t"9 it F' Fifi' ' T7 Y X A M fi A.

Under the auspices of the Red Cross, an afghan was knitted for the Veteran's Hospital in Batavia. The Mother-Faculty Tea was held on April 24. This traditional affair proved to be very enioyable. June 3 came, and the final dance ofthe year, Memory Lane, was held.

The proceeds of this dance helped to pay for the leather-bound covers of the "Niagarian." During the year Beta exchanged ponies with their sister club, the Beta Chi. It also supported Hi-Y activities, including the Saturday Nite Club, the Hi-Y City Council, the World Youth Guild, and other Hi-Y benefits. Members of the Beta took active part in school sports, dances, and other social proiects. The season concluded with the annual picnic at Olcott Beach. John Grana was president and Charles A. Zabaldo was the adviser. beta hi-y to-bo-vi hi-y o Many students in N. F. H. S. can still remember when the To Bo Vi Hi-Y was organized in 1946. lt has advanced far since then, and has in the years '48-'49 left many milestones that will be remembered. Under the leadership of Charles Caccamise, adviser, and Elio Marchetti, president, the club has accom- plished many achievements. , The social calendar was highlighted by the "Moth Ball Hop" on May 21 at the north end Y. M. C. A. and participation in the Saturday Night Club. Another feather in the To Bo Vi's hat was the distinction of being the first Hi-Y in this area to meet its obligation to the World Youth Fund. As a lawmaker, the To Bo Vi Hi-Y presented a bill at the area Hi-Y Council meeting on December ii. On November l5, the To Ba Vi Hi-Y selected the Phi Gamma Beta as its sister Hi-Y. To commemorate the occasion a party was held at the North End "Y" on November 26. The To Ba Vi sent a representative to the State Hi-Y Council which was held on April 23, 24, and 25 in Westheld, New York. The To Bo Vi Hi-Y rings down the curtain and looks back on the old year with pride and toward the new year with anticipation of greater things to come. :wx , 4: 9 K' xi . 1 ' U 'F' ' Ai 1, N y 3, ' 1 ,, wig .',r 12 N' C-c... -mi.. r 'A , Q.. .

Oiicers who were elected for the post year are: Charles Sheusi, president, John Burroughs, vice-president, Herbert Bloomquist, secretary, and Avrom Levy, treasurer. The Key Club sponsored two fund-raising projects. lt sold "coke" at home games of the basketball team and tickets to the annual Kiwanis Invitation Basketball Tournament held last April. The March of Dimes Drive in school was in the members' charge and proved highly successful. Over sixty dollars was turned over to the lnfantile Paralysis Foundation. The highlight of the season was the Key Club International Convention in Washington, D. C. The local Kiwanis Club, at its own expense, sent several Key Club members there to receive a better understanding and appreciation of the work of Key Clubs all over the country. With a year of helpful experience to guide it, the Key Club can look forward to an even more vigorous program next season.

The many rushees who received bids and underwent the somewhat arduous period of pledging, breathed a deep sigh of relief at the formal initiation in November. On Thanksgiving Day, the third annual "Harvest Moon" dance was held under the chairmanship of Bill Fermoile. The unusual elimination dance prize was a Toy Shepherd puppy which was won by Mildred Plunkett and Kevin Weil. Due to the financial success of this dance, money was donated to the Salvation APmy.

A King and Queen were chosen, crowned, and each was presented with a prize in keeping with the spring season. Program booklets were given away as souvenirs.

Bedford, the Nu chapter of Sigma Psi fraternity has completed another satisfactory year. An innovation of the pledge period, which started shortly after the beginning of the school year and ended in November, was its constructive theme. An entirely new and unprecedented type of informal initiation was conducted this year. The formal rituals and a banquet, at which the eleven new members were feted, took place the following Monday night. The main event of the past year was the annual Christmas formal at Hotel Niagara with Hal Mclntyre and his orchestra, famed for its modern rhythm. Other praisewoithy events were the Mother and Son banquet, the Father and Son banquet, a toboggan party at Fonthill, a hay ride, and the celebration of the twentieth anniversary of Nu chapter of Sigma Psi fraternity. Once again Sigma Psi was undefeated in the lnterfraternity football league. Interesting and educational programs were a part of the weekly meetings in addition to the regular business of the evening. Monetary contributions were made to two worthy causes: The March of Dimes and the American Red Cross. " ' 2 i '. 2, 1 A' . , If . .. L . 'P -az. .mf - s 79 r 'ri s 1. . Q -V -. 5, -' .

The Red and Gray nine opened the season by shutting out the LaSalle squad, 5-0. Lanky Jack Perkins pitched good ball, striking out fourteen men. The trio of Chepkauskas, Marshall, and Burnett collected two hits apiece. Tonawanda proved to be a stumbling block, and Niagara was beaten by a 7-4 score. The hnal score against Lockport was 6-5 with Mickey Novak pitching a six-hit ball game. Bud Johnson, rookie inheider, led the barrage of hits with three singles. Jim Webber proved to be too much for the Lackawanna club and came through with a neat four-hitter. Again outhelder, Danny Chep- kauskas, led the hitting with a double and two singles. Frank Bumett drove in the winning run with a single in the sixth inning to make the Rnal score, 3-1. In the game with Trott, Mickey Novak, pitcher, held the Engineers to no runs and two hits. Jack Marshall and Danny Chepkauskas racked up six hits and were instmmental in the eight run splurge of the Red and Gray. Niagara Falls then came through with a 3-I victory over North Tonawanda by the efforts of hurler Bob Young. The speed of wiry Jack Perkins handicapped the Kenmore Blue Devils to but two runs, four hits, while his squad was gathering ten runs. Danny Chepkauskas, speedy outhelder, proved to be the spark plug in the field and at the plate. N. F. H. S. entered the playoffs to meet the Lockport nine.

As the season ended, the Red and Grey had a record of no wins, six losses and one tie, but as every game was played, the boys showed steady improvement in their knowledge of football. N. F. H. S. opened the season by playing the White and Blues of Kenmore. Numerous fumbles cost the Falls three touchdowns in the flrst half. During the second half the boys knuckled down to a better defense and held the Ken- morites to but two hard-earned touchdowns. A week later Tonawanda traveled to Hyde Park Stadium to play the Red and Gray. In the second quarter of play a twenty yard pass from Skelton to Rhodes gave Niagara the lead, 6-0. John Nowe failed to convert the extra point. During the third quarter, Tonawanda scored and made the extra point to clinch the game. The following Saturday the team met the LaSalle squad. It was touch and go for three quarters until LaSalle blocked Richard Banos' punt and recovered. Two plays later they scored. Niagara went to the air but to no avail. A small but scrappy Dunkirk team beat N. F. in a hard fought battle, I2-O. The shifty deceptive single wing attack of North Tonawanda baffled the Red and Gray players. North Tonawanda emerged victorious, 37-O. Against the Blue and Gray Steelers of Lackawanna, Niagara went down to defeat 34-O. During the first half N. F. H.

The second classic of the season was only a 28-27 victory. Lockport and Lackawanna, the third and fourth opponents of the season, tasted 59-43 and 39-3l losses. The flfth clash of the season began the short list of Red and Grey losses as Tonawando outscored 52-33. Doormat LaSalle remained underdogs after Niagara handed them a 48-33 defeat in the sixth game of the season. Trott visited us to play in the seventh classic of the season with a former Red and Grey cager to leave with a 40-33 win. The first round of the season flnished with five victories and two losses. ll Wh wt... -sr 3 EXXQ-gk s . 1 ,1 , .. xXx -. .l ,X 'F -L L, ,.

At this point Niagara recorded its third loss. Kenmore tasted their second Niagara loss in the ninth clash of the season. The Blue Devils were out-tallied 49-43. Lockport outscored Niagara in the next tilt 35-29 and our fourth lass of the season was chalked up. The twelfth and thirteenth games of the season proved to be extremely exciting when the "Come back kids" from Tonawanda and LaSalle were paid visits. Both tilts were 38-36. Trott paid their second visit of the season and made a repeat performance. The game was lost 55-40. This flnished the season for the Red and Grey and left them in a two-way place for third and an invitation to the playoffs where they were comparatively un- successful. Every man who wore the Red and Grey this season did not disgrace the colors. All played fine ball using sports- manship and fair play as their guides. High scorers for the season were Dave Sand, Jack Perkins, and Bob Dolan, all of whom played extremely flne ball throughout the season. They had I76, IO2, and 7l points, respectively. lllt Rovrx J.

Although the natators downed the "County Sealers," 45-21, in the opening meet they went on to lose the next four meets in the following order: December 8 to Kenmore 39-27, December 16 to Tonawanda 37-29, January 6 to North Tonawanda 42-24, January 13 to Amherst 38-28. The first round ended with a wan l and lost 4 record. i lnougurating the second round at Lockport on January 20, the team chalked up its second victory in six starts to the tune of 38-27. Kenmore, Tonawanda, and North Tonowanda repeated their tirst round of performances on Febmary 3, 10, and 17, respectively. The points for the meets ran 41-25, 48-18, and 57-9, respectively. The final meet of the season on February 24 found the Red and Grey in "tip- if top" shape to down Amherst to the splash of 39-27.

W J The volleyball tournament gave the iunior and senior girls their first -:MWF it chance of this school year to take part in a team sport which really re- quired the ability to work together as a group. ' , Members of the eleventh grade gym classes gat together and formed Z 'fl fifteen individual teams which vied with each other for top honors in this A ,Q field. After a number of close games, sore muscles, and hoarse voices, the Cyanamid team, with Mariorie Smith as captain, came out on top. The Flying Saucers, with Anna Scalfoni as captain, captured the title of runners-up, ln the senior division ten professional teams were arranged, which fought fast and furiously to win the honored title of champs. However, quite a few of the teams met with overwhelming competition and were forced to bow out of the running after suffering many defeats. ln the end the Atoms, winners of two previous years, finished the season undefeated and captured the senior crown. Margaret Nacca was the captain of the winning team with the following players: Lottie Sieczka, Jennie Sieczka, Gloria Brandon, lrene Elia, Mary Vanni, Rose DiPosquoIe, Arshloose Der Ohanessian, Shirley Robillard, Margaret Fielding, Mary Pokorney, and Noreen Lass. Second place honors went to the Drivers with Mary Pitari as captain. The volleyball toumament was enioyed by all, including some daily observers of the opposite sex. last Row: G. Brandon, N..La1x, M.

However, '5 A 't due to unfavorable weather conditions, the toumaments could not be f completed until spring and all the flnal championships could not be ' determined. In the eleventh grade singles tournament, the toss up was between ag Amanda Grandon, Marcia Weeks, and Clara Gornicki. In the eleventh grade doubles, flnals were played between Theresa Ross and Mariorie Kraft who defeated Jane Zymraz and Elaine Kopacz by a scare of nine to seven. ln the twelfth grade singles, Gloria Brandon was defeated by Mary Vanni with the terrific scare of six to zero. ln the twelfth grade doubles, the final match is to be between Ann Orsi and Mary Pitari against lrene Elia and Elizabeth Pasquale. This is predicted to be a fast moving and exciting match. Either way the game will be won by a close score. X lan Raw: G. Brandon, E. Pasquale, A. Orsi, M. Pitari, M. Vanni, l. Ella. Flrlt Raw: J.

"Fear is one of the most powerful instinctive emotions," says Miss Mary McDougall, girls' swimming instructor. "I consider it my most important adversary in my teaching of swimming. The causes of fear are usually some frightening personal experiences in the water or serious water accidents to near relatives or friends: The high school girl usually manifests her fear by some expression of rationalization, so we have the numerous so called 'reasons' for her not taking swimming-catch cold too easily, hair looks unglamorovs, not enough time to dress, feel ill after swimming, and many others. Our program is designed primarily to aid the pupil in understanding and overcoming these fears. The many advantages of knowledge of swimming are discussed and evaluated. "The ability to save oneself or another is reason enough in itself to leam to swim. A 'water wallflower' is a sod unhappy person, How many swim parties, canoe trips, fishing or sailing expeditions does the non- swimmer miss aut on! Also, swimming can't be equalled as a form of ' r symmetrical body building exercise. It develops grace, poise, and good muscular co-ordination." Miss McDougall, in addition to her regular classes, teaches a class in X Senior Red Cross Life-Saving, allows the girls to go to the pool every i . ,S FriddY after school for PlaY or Practice, and also presides at several H Q "mixed" splash parties each year. She holds several classes for non- 3 K swimmers as she feels that everyone should have at least an elementary :WWW I K - knowledge of the fundamentals of swimming. , , :l?JE'11:-'iffffr-W. girls' swimming girls' basketball Basketball season in the girls' gym was the time for all good female contestants to come to the aid of their teams in the annual tournament. Those males who witnessed some of the games were probably a bit puzzled by the method of play. There are two main differences between girls' and boys' basketball. First, the girls place their forwards and guards at different ends of the court, and neither cross the center line during play. Secondly, o girls' team consists of six players com- posed of three forwards and three guards instead of five. This year the girls especially loaked forward to the season since Lockport invited our "basketshooters" of two girls' teams for a Play Dav in basketball. Here at High School, intramural games were played with former champions such as Margaret Nacca's and Susie .lohnson's teams trying to Q hold their crowns earned last year. Also, contests were held in the differ- ' ent gym classes. ' Ak, jk My Aside from the fun and sports ability displayed, both the eleventh 4' X '- : and twelfth grades were given tests in class. The Juniors had a practice if if test while the Seniors labored over a written examination. ,yffiifif The students were also drilled in the techniques of basketball during si , wif' ff, ' class. f ya ,Q 'Lit is E. --,r it Standing: G.

The finals in the doubles was a very close match which went to three games, the scores being 17-21, .21-16, 21-13. Mary Vanni and Rose DePasquale were the winners of this tournament while Anne Orsi and Mary Pltaru took second place honors. The iuniors also had a chance to exhibit their talents in a tourr which took place at the same time as the senior tournament. The singles crown was claimed by a previous winner, Rose Bov Jn, who with her fast game, defeated Jean Rymer with the scores of 21-9 and 21-15.

At the beginning of the second term, during every gym class the girls could be found industriously hitting the bird from one end of the court to the other, and trying tricky net shots to toil their opponents. There were individual class tournaments which progressed through the weeks until two girls from each gym period worked their way through the flnals to become class champs, At the end of the school badminton season the iunior and senior tournaments were held, with a large number of girls turning out to give their full support. The games were usually played in the girls' gym on Thursdays after school. ln the iunior tournament 94 girls entered. After a number of close, well-played games, Barbara Sheldon and Mariorie Smith emerged triumphant after downing Evelyn Eichholz and Mariorie Irish in a match which went to three games. Eichholz and Irish took the flrst game ll-15, and then Sheldon and Smith staged o come back to win the next two games by the scores of I5-6 and I5-9. The senior girls, not to be outdone, also played good badminton in t , . 3 their tournaments, in which 52 were entered. In the hnal match Ann Mack , s,.,t Q' Q5 ' and Mary Tower, champions in tenth grade, captured the senior bad- u W minton crown by defeating their opponents in two games, 15-7 and 1 ac K I5-7. Margaret Nacca and Lottie Sieczka claimed the runner-up position. Contrary to other years, there was no play-off match between the senior and iunior winning teams. 199 123 bowling leagues boys' bowling N b by .

Everyone was enthusiastic about the game of bowling, and this resulted in a record number of teams in the league. The fifteen teams bowled every other Friday at the Central Bowling Alley. Under the supervision of Mrs. Skinner, the girls learned the funda- mentals of bowling. They learned the meaning of "soldiers" and "timber" and how to get their high scores. Although many had never bowled before, scores of 100 or better soon showed on the score sheets. The teams, the Alley Cats, Ball Bearings, Beginners, Boogie Bowlers, Bunnie Bugs, Jet Pilots, New Look, Pin Queens, Pin Splitters, Rockets, Schmoas, Spares, Strikes, Triple Threat, and the White Eagles, fought hard to win first place, with the Boogie Bowlers and Triple Threats leading. ln the individual scoring the league was amazed at the increasing number of high scores. Dolores Evans of the Triple Threats was high with l5O and June Julian followed with a score of 144. Last Raw: E. Surman, D. Smith, S. Mayes, J. Mahl, E. Janik, J. Trane, R. Price, B. Kaifasz, J.

Practices were few and far between due to the frequency of wet grounds, but under the supervision of Mr. Stafford each practice was a step ahead. During the flrst few weeks an intra-squad tournament was played to seed out the best qualified players. Among these were flrst singles, Don King, second singles, MorQrLHaber, third singles, Francis Pedrick. ln the doubles Stanley Herowski and Herbert Liebig paired off. Also Bryant Kurtzman and Lew Smith played in the other doubles with Pat LaBarber as alternate. The Red and Grey Racqueteers squared off against LaSalle in the flrst match. It was a hard fought scrap with the Explorers coming out an top 3 to 2. After five days rest, the boys met Trott and won a one-sided victory 5-O. Against the Red and Blue of North Tonawanda, the squad lost four matches to one. They met the Kenmore Blue Devils on May l8th and were defeated by a lop-sided score of 5-O. LaSalle was the first foe in the second round of play.
