The Niagarian stall' has been doing considerable research in
the school files in order to find what progress has been made
by our school. We are taking this opportunity to bring to your
attention the achievements which have been made by our
Alma Mater in the first half of the twentieth century.
To Miss Mabel Eshelman, in grateful recognition of 4-5 years
of distinctive service as a teacher in our public schools,
we respectfully dedicate the 1951 Niagarian.

November, 1902-A laying of the cornerstone ceremony was held in the new high school building
though it is still incomplete. A box of documents, among them being a copy of the Gazette,
a picture of the cataracts, names of three hundred students and many important people of city,
state and country, was placed in an opening under the bottom step and sealed. .

THE B0 RD OF ED C TIO
In 1892 when the city of Niagara Falls was incorporated, the
first Board of Education was appointed. Succeeding boards have
seen schools destroyed by fire and authorized new ones to be built
to take their places or to fill the needs of a growing city. The work
of the board is carried out largely by its three permanent committees
whose titles are self-explanatory. They are Finance and Operation,
Buildings and Grounds, and Purchase and Equipment. Any special
committees are formed when they are needed. This year through the
combined efforts of these committees our auditorium received com-
plete redecorating from the careful repainting to new draperies and
curtains. Besides providing material things, the board forms the poli-
cies and plans of our educational system and sees that they are car-
ried out. We deeply appreciate having had the sound judgment of
the board in guiding us throughout our years in school.
The past fifty years is a short period in the his-
tory of mankind, but in terms of human achieve-
ment it-has been the greatest period of all time. The
results of scientific discovery and technological de-
velopments have given us a standard of living far
beyond that of any other people.
These achievements do not necessarily assure us
of the good life. To preserve the privileges of our
democracy we must devote ourselves to the respons-
ibilities of citizenship. We must strive for a better
understanding of human relationships.
Your generation must meet the challenge of the
next fifty years.
Superintendent of Schools
'll - -
The past fifty years were marvelous years Un
believable scientific inventions were made and our
ways of life were completely changed. Unfortunate
lv we did not learn how to live with each other in
the world-the two greatest wars in history result
ed. Men forgot they were civilized and used their
scientific inventions to destroy others. You are en-
tering the struggle to determine whether man
should live for the state or the state for the individ-
ual. The struggle between these two ideologies will
affect your whole life and in our American way of
thinking will probably be more important than all
our great scientific inventions. I wish you success.
Fifty years-only a sentence on the pages of
time, but almost a lifetime to many. Modes of tra-
vel, means of communication, philosophies of gov-
ernment and family relationships-yes, methods of
instruction too, all have changed. Fantastic pro-
gress has been made in some things but we have
retrogressed in others. The answers which were
sought by our students in 1900 still are being pur-
sued by the graduates of today. We, who have dedi-
cated our lives to assist boys and girls in develop-
ing a better world through education, are not whol-
ly disillusioned. We still have the finest assistants-
the educated youth of America. May we go forward
together and solve the many world problems and
permit mankind to enjoy its rightful heritage-a
useful and happy life.
To The Class of 1951:
Your graduation, which comes at the mid-
century, also comes at a time in the world's history
when it is dillicult to tell whether civilization will
move forward, or whether its progress will be
temporarily retarded. This situation is not new,
because men in all periods of history have had to
meet challenges to their way of life. The present
world crisis, while probably on a larger scale, is
not different from that which man has had to meet
in every generation.
Because our American way of life is worth
preserving, we must work diligently for its preser-
vation in times of peace, as well as in times of war.
We have won the wars, but too often lost the
peace. May your generation be the first to win a
When you leave Niagara Falls High School, the
best wishes of the Faculty go with you.

In the memorable year, nineteen hundred and forty-nine, Niagara Falls
High School opened its doors to the graduating class of 1951, who assembled
from Caskill, North Junior, and South Junior High School. As voices joined
to sing the Alma Mater, fears were forgotten and new friends were made.
The school welcomed its incoming juniors as well as its new executives,
Mr. William F. Jack as principal, assisted by Mr. Timothy O'Brien, former
LaSalle alumnus, as vice-principal. After becoming firmly established in
N.F.H.S., we were led through two successful years of adventure and exploits.
As November rolled around, our thoughts were turned toward the election
of vice-president of our Student Council, who was to be elected from the
junior class. Carl Costanzo, formerly of South Junior, was elected to this
Time drew near for the officers of the Junior Class to be selected. Bill
Scouler was elected president, William Johnson, vice-president, Bernard
Zeifang, secretary, and Bruce Rhodes, treasurer. Under the able advisorship
of Miss Esther Dahlquist, we completed a memorable junior year.
With Christmas drawing near, our efforts were devoted to the promotion
of the junior play f'Chost Trainv. Under the capable direction of Mr. Frank
Baggallay, we found hidden behind shy faces, unbeknown talent.
ln the field of sports, our football team captured the city championship
league. On the basketball court we were equally successful, winning 11 of
With spring, came new activities, new sports, and the production of a
talent-filled variety show.
September, 1950, and we were at last seniors! Getting off to a good
start, we elected Carl Costanzo, president, James Mott, vice-president,
Dorothy Smith, secretary, and Norma Masters, treasurer. Under the capable
guidance of Mr. John Edwards, our advisor, we advanced through our
Our class, although not record-breaking in size, proved itself capable of
directing a profitable magazine sales campaign.
One of the outstanding improvements in N.F.H.S. for the year 1950, was
the complete redecoratign of our auditorium, at a cost of over 812,500 To
complete the changes, new flags were donated by the class of 1950. During
the World Series, a television set was donated to the school so the students
could enjoy the Series during study halls. This was greatly appreciated by
With the month of June, our thoughts turn, as have the twenty-five other
graduation classes before us, toward Class Day, and the grand climax of
twelve years of education. N.F.H.S. opens its doors to send one more grad-
uating class into the future.

CLASS STATI TIC
We, the Sixty-third Graduating Class of Niagara Falls High School, stop
the turning wheels of progress to calculate the statistics of the Senior Class
The average healthy senior tumbles out of bed at 7:20 A.M. and is rudely
awakened by the snap, crackle, and pop of his breakfast cereal.
Through our questionnaire, we found that 257 vigorous seniors walk to
our beloved halls of learning. 163 of us have to suffer the joggling and the
12c fares on N.F.T. However there are 'quite a few thrifty seniors who take
advantage of the weekly 50c bus ticket. The rest of us hitch a ride with Dad
or a frlend Of course there are a few who don t get to school at all on some
It comes to light that 42'Z2 of our school loving seniors at some time or
other have played hooky How shocking'
Due to the fact that 173 of us have television it was found that 174 dont
do their homework every night fthe 174th obviously watches his neighbors
setl The remaining students clazm to spend one hour a night doing home
work All this studying makes the average 81 195
lt was amazing to discover that 210 seniors drive automobiles but only
173 have driver s licenses Better look into this Mr Rlndfussl
Co Niagara' Yea team' can be heard as 66 2 367 of the senior class
cheer the seasonal teams on to victory Most of us prefer to freeze at the
football games with the basketball games our second favorite
Sammy Senior IS 17 years old He weighs 157 pounds has brown hair
brown eyes is 5 feet 10 inches and wears size 10 shoe Suzy Senior IS 17
also She has brown eyes brown hair fpartly blonde IS 5 feet 4 inches
tall and wears slze 55 shoe
We have found through much studying of the questionnaires that 180
intellectuals are deflnltely going to college or other schools of higher learn
ing whlle 280 will not go on in school and the rest are undecided The Draft
Board will probably have something to say about th1s 50 patriotic seniors
are looklng forward to Joining the armed services and 169 draft dodgers are
praying that the government won t ever find them
The average height of boys and girls together was found to be 5 feet 6
inches a total of 4000 feet or when placed end to end will reach from
N F H S to Spinners and back 3 times
Blue was found to be the favorite color red and green being a close
second while one undecided senior chose plaid
It was interesting to note that 67 of the seniors are anxlous to enter into
the state of wedded bliss soon after graduation 63W are willing to walt a
few more years before taking the final plunge The remaining 31 'Zn will leave
it all up to fate allowing cupld s darts to hlt where they may
73011 of the senlor class bring 134 sandwiches in their lunch 26'7 buy
1f you are a senior that you drink chocolate milk
Now havlng completed our duties as class statlsticians as well as our
stay at Niagara Falls High School we lay aside our pencils and question
nalres as we set the wheels of progress in motlon again Tlme marches on'

SE IOR CL SS POEM
On our Journey through llfe we have come to the place
Where we must prove how mature we have grown
The world and 1lS problems we know we must face
As the old generatlon glVCS way to our own
And now here we stand w1th the world at our door
And so rullng wlsely w1ll be our great task,
To govern, to vote, to serve, and stlll more
But are we prepared for these dut1es9 you ask
In our free country the people can rule,
And 1n the near future, we ll have just that chance
So the trammg that we have obtamed here 1n school,
Wnll a1d us 1n makmg the natlon advance.
Let us try, lf we can, to follow the road,
Whlch we hope, ln the end, w1ll lead to success
As workxng together w1ll llghten our load,
We w1ll, lf we strlve, make our country progress.

Since the first publication in 1879, the Chronicle
has come down from a one page twelve column issue
to the present four page five colum publication. The
journalism classes of N.F.H.S. edits the paper under
the supervision of Mrs. Bereneice Oliver.
The Chronicle has been a member of the Central
lnterscholastic Press Association, the Western New
York Inter-state and National Press Association to
which the paper still has membership in the latter two.
,ludged first prize winner at the Annual Scholastic
Editors' Convention held at Syracuse in 1930. the
Chronicle took first place honors for its 'iLights Col-
den ,lubilee Edition". Letters of congratulation were
received from Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt of New
York and from Sir Esme Howard, the British ambas-
sador to the United States.
On November 24. 1943 an honor rating was re-
ceived from the N.S.P.A. for the paperis fine work
for the previous year.
During the school year 1944-45, a weekly one-cent
supplement was printed and on April first of the same
year a special edition was printed in blue ink with
the startling headlines "School Evictedf,
It has been the goal for some of the students to
gain membership into the National Quill and Scroll.
To become a member, students have to have excep-
tional qualifications as a reporter.
The present policy of the journalism classes is to
publish six issues of the Chronicle yearly and students
are able to buy the paper for ten cents a copy.

The editorial. art. business. theme. publicity. and photographic staffs of the '51
Niagarian have all worked together to make this year's book a little better than last.
The staff has chosen as its theme. 'ffifty years of progress in N.F.H.S." Through-
out the book. references to the founding date of the various organizations haxe been
made. The write-up for each "State" has been cut down to a small outline making a
better looking page and'leaving room for an informal snap of the Student Council
Representatives. The emblem of each Creek letter organization is added to its page.
We have added a page giving recognition to our new vice-principal and to our de-
parting vice-principal and another page of faculty caricatures.

The art stall has worked hard to carry the theme of progress throughout the book.
Each division page represents an important event in that division. The white division
page was used instead of a colored one because we felt that the detail in each drawing
showed up better on the white.
We hope that you will get as much pleasure from the '51 yearbook as we have
had working on it and that we have set a higher goal for all yearbook staffs of the
next fifty years.

The history of N. F. H. S. is long, but that of the school store is comparatively
short. It was established in 1928 under the guidance of Miss Emma Hulen. When Mr.
Jack came to high school in 1942. he assumed the management of the store. In 1945
Miss Virginia Donohue took over the supervision of it, and has been running it suc-
cessfully ever since.
The store was set up as a convenience to the students especially because of a diffi-
culty in obtaining specialized paper for bookkeeping. Next, other supplies were added
so that we now have a complete stock of school supplies. This money helps defray the
expenses of our paid assemblies and raises money for student council. Aside from the
sale of notebook and typing paper, pencils, erasers, rulers, and shorthand notebooks,
etc. red and gray plates for cars, pencils with the basketball schedules on them, also
in red and gray, and book covers, done in the school colors are stocked.
At the end of each year awards for participation in store activities for one year
are made These awards are felt letters of red and gray
The treasurer of the Student Council Eugene Molak IS also responsible for the
funds in the school store
Among those who work in the store each morning and noon are Virginia Stagg

Under the direction of ltliss Jeanette VVylie and lN'Iiss Doraine Sanzio
the school office functions smoothly with the help of thirteen students.
Mrs. Agnes O'Brien, secretary to Mr. Jack, also has the added duties
of filling out student transcripts for colleges and jobs, permanent record
cards and diplomas.
Miss Sanzio compiles attendance and absentee reports. The school bul-
letins are mimeographed and drawn up under her supervision.
During the first period, Michalena Mariano and Ann Ricotta file lists
of absentees and sort attendance cards. ,Ioan Shanabrook takes Miss
Sanzio's place in the office during fifth period. June White, Kathleen
Brown, Laura Raush, Colleen O'Leary, Kathleen Brown, and Ann Harvey
collect and check attendance sheets during the eighth period. The ab-
sentee cards are collected by Nancy Kane, Sylvia Kishoian, Peggy Morgan,
and Delores Cecot in the moming.
The efficiency of the office has been increased through the efforts of
Since 1945, one of the most essential departments in Niagara Falls
High School has been the guidance office. Each student is helped greatly by
the efforts of both Miss Werner and Mr. Schrader. Assistance in making
out high school programs, in obtaining working papers, and in choosing
suitable vocations and colleges are some of the many services given will-
ingly by the guidance ofhce to the students of Niagara Falls High School.

"Erstwhile Susan". presented by the senior class on April 11th and 12th,
is a delightful three act comedy written by Mary Ann DeForest. It centers
around the simple countrified family of a widower, Mr. Barnaby Dreary who
decides to marry a rich widow, Juliet Miller in order to help manage her money.
Instead, Juliet completely takes the family affairs into her own hands and tries
to teach them some of her fashionable New England ideas by redecorating
their simple home and persuading Mr. Dreary's daughter, Barnabetta, to go to
a private school, much to the dismay of poor Barnaby.
The members of the cast under the capable direction of Mr. Frank Baggal-
lay are as follows: Ronald Swick as Barnaby Drearyg James Mesler and David
Robertson as Jacob and Emanuel. Barnaby's two sonsg Beverly Tucker as Juliet
Miller lErstwhile Susanl 3 Ann Wanchisin as Barnabetta Drearyg Peter Previte

Fifty years ago this city did not even have
a public library. We have progressed greatly
since then for today the school library con-
tains 5500 volumes with more being added
yearly. Our library was first used in 1924
when the present building was opened.
Through the years improvements have been
made, additional shelves and storage space
have been added as the supply of books grew
while just this year a new lighting system
Since from books we canuobtain both infor-
mation and pleasure, the library is one of the
most useful and enjoyable rooms in the
school. At the student's disposal are novels,
plays, poetry, biographies, encyclopedias and
reference books. It also contains college cata-
logues and copies of the 45 magazines to
which it subscribes. Perhaps the most unusual
feature for any high school library is the
Clark J. Peet collection of record albums
which may be borrowed.
Always willing to help us make use of its
facilities are: Miss Hutson, the librarian, Mrs.
Chatterton and a staff of 28 girls and Miss
Rasmussen. With its pleasant paneling, shelves
of books and atmosphere of peace, our li-
brary is indeed inviting.

November, 1939-The Greek letter organizations, wishing to be recognized as a part of the school,
formed an organization called Pan-Hellenic. Each sorority and fraternity has two representatives
present at the meetings.

Pan Hellenic is an organization composed of two
representatives from each of the Creek letter groups.
The sororities and fraternities banded together in
September of 1939. For many years prior, the clubs
had unsuccessfully tried to organize. Their motive is
better understanding between themselves and the ad-
ministration, and they act as a clearing house for
dates so one organization doesn't conflict with another.
Pan Hellenic assists the school in many ways. lt
presented the school with a flag and established a
fund for a sound-motion picture projector. In the
spring of 1940, Pan Hellenic held its first dance, pro-
ceeds going to the above mentioned fund. Since then,
this organization has held a dance almost every year.
The proceeds always go to some worthy cause within
the school. Frequently the group has presented an out-
Pan Hellenic also controls sorority and fraternity
pledging to a certain extent. Each fall, at the begin-
ning of the "rush seasonn. the leaders issue a set of
rules decided upon by the members and the adminis-
tration and which each organization must follow. Thus
there is unity and cooperation among the represented

Coach B. N. "Doon Parson's 25th anniversary at NFHS was one of the
most successful years in the school's basketball history.
Co-Captains "Bud" Johnson and Ron Perri along with Bruce Rhodes, Bill
Scouler, and Ted Wozniak made up the starting team. As the season pro-
gressed, Tom Damiano replaced Wozniak when Ted enrolled at the Uni-
versity of Buffalo. The Red and Gray ended the regular season in a tie with
Lackawanna for second place with ten wins and four losses.
The team hit its peak in the play-offs when the Cataracts defeated La-
Salle, Lackawanna, and Tonawanda respectively to become the play-off
winners and gain the honor of representing the Niagara Frontier League
in the sectionals. They defeated Amherst and Jamestown in the sectionals
to become the section VI class AA champions.
The season can be summed up by quoting Mr. Iack's words, "NICE

With five letter-men returning, N.F.H.S. mermen finished a very
successful 1950-51 season in the Niagara Frontier Swimming League.
The team recorded an impressive record of eight wins and four de-
feats to wind up the season in third place.
The highlight of the season came when Niagara Falls handed the
previously unbeaten N.T. Lumberjacks a 37 to 29 decision, their
first loss of the season. The team ended the season by dropping a
close decision to Kenmore 37 to 29.
Individual scoring records were broken during the season
by Walt Patterson, Joel Farugia, and Peter Wolf. Patterson broke a
19 year old record in the 100 yard free style. The new time of 57.1
was enough to beat the old time of 57.3. Joel Farugia clipped off
three tenths of a second from the 220 yard free style record. His
record time was 2:30.5. Peter Wolf washed away the 100 yard
backstroke record with a good 1:06. The old time was 1:07.9.

tain organized her own team.
The captain of the winning twelfth grade team is Amelia Rodriguez. The members of her team

alli, Geraldine Rodenko, Rebecca Rosati, Marie Salerno, Joanne Schweitzer, Marian Shepro, Juanita

In preparation for the basketball season, a clinic was held in the girlis gym in order to train
officials for the game. A rating test was given twice by officials from Buffalo. Carol White received a
local rating, which enables her to ofhciate at any girlls basketball game for pay. Patricia Hunter re-
ceived her intramural rating which means she can officiate at a girl's basketball game in any school.

Much interest is centered around the girls' gym in the spring when the
table tennis season is in progress. About ten tables are available in the gym
and are kept occupied during the class periods and the after school tourna-
ments. Last year's singles tournament champion was Ruth Kenyon and the
doubles tournament ehampions were Eleanor Crabka and Wanda Macielog.
lt was with much enthu-
siasm that 37 couples entered
the annual girls doubles
badminton tournament, The
tournament progressed ra-
pidly to the semi-finals which
saw .lane Upper and Anne
Maxfield playing Betty Di-
Camillo and Ruth Kenyon:
Joan Krauser and Janet
