Niagara Falls High School
Niagara Falls, New York
As we, the Class of 1962, approach the final
door of our high school days, ci period of
transition awaits us. Upon leaving high school,
we will enter a world Hlled with many doors,
the choice is up to us. The classes we have at-
tended and the instruction we have received
will provide a sound basis for our future en-
deavors. Though the doors be varied through
which we shall pass, the Class of 1962 will
aspire to further the progress of our community.
It is not our intention, however, to blot the
memories of the past two years. By publishing
the 1962 "Niagarian," we shall leave this door
slightly aiar, so that we may always look back
on our happy days at Niagara Falls High

Progress is typified in many ways. lt can be the
accumulation of day by day effort evolving into
a lasting impression or, perhaps, it may be
evidenced by one stroke of profound intelli-
gence. Often one sees the former illustrated,
other times the latter is predominant. Seldom
can one find these two composites in one per-
ln our midst is an individual who genuinely em-
bodies such attributes. Leadership, kindness,
service, and a profound sense of loyalty mark
her as one most worthy of acknowledgement.
lt is to you, Miss Leah Simmons, that we dedi-
cate this, the 1962 "Niagarian."

Production of the "Niagarian" is initiated by the use of a few
simple tools and concepts. Hard work and determination mold
these ingredients into our annual yearbook.
A D PRESENT
As one glances at the diverse views of Niagara Falls
High School, it becomes most apparent that the
years have produced both change and progress.
Structurally, the building was razed by fire in 1922,
this effected a program of reconstruction and ex-
pansion which was completed in 1923.
Progressively, strides have been made to meet and
adjust to the multi-faceted world in which we live.
Equipment and facilities relative to the various
phases of educational development have been in-
corporated into a program rich with an appreciation
of the total student. Now, as girders once more are
placed to form an expanded Niagara Falls High
School, we look forward to a future bright with
SEATED: Mr. Peter Longhine, Mrs. Hugh Pifer, Mr. George Kauber, Richard Doherty, Miss Nea Brown, Secretary, Mr, Frank Lang, Clerk,
President of the Board, Mr. Joseph Chille, Mr. William Collins, Mrs. Dr. Weldon Oliver, Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Robert McKnight,
John Runals. STANDING: Mr. Albert Fose, Mr. John Lunney, Mr. Administrative Assistant of Business Affairs.

BOARD OF EDUCATIO
Every public school system must be run by a conscientious body of
citizens who are truly interested in furthering the cause of education.
The Niagara Falls Board of Education fulfills this need. The rate of
progress of the Niagara Falls School system testifies to this fact and
assures us ofthe continued growth of our educational needs.

To the Seniors of 1962:
You have now reached the doorway which you
alone must open, and beyond it lies your future.
Up to this time, you were able to proceed with a
planned program whose goals were rather easily
seen and evaluated by you. Your classes were
steps to them, and your teachers counseled you
along the way. The threshold has a good founda-
Your progress through school has made you
worthy to approach the doorway to life with a
good degree of confidence.,We know the years
ahead will be a wonderful adventure.
My best wishes go with you.
Timothy A. O'brien
To the Class of l962:
You have chosen as your theme "Progress is the
Doorway to Life." When you entered kindergarten
or first grade, the doorway to educational oppor-
tunities was opened to you. As you have advanced
through school, new and wider doors have been
opened. Each of you has developed your capaci-
ties according to individual skills and effort. Your
personal power is yours alone.
Nothing worth having is easy to win. lt has been
said that when one ceases to progress, he begins
to deteriorate. As you leave high school, each of
you will go his or her way - new friends, new in-
terests and new opportunities. Your life will de-
velop according to the manner in which you take
advantage of these opportunities. lt is my hope
each of you will travel the road of progress.
My sincere congratulations and best wishes to
Leah M. Simmons

The result of the Junior Class election of officers produced some very outstanding lead-
ers for the present year. John Zankowski was elected Presidentf Jack Foster was chosen
Vice-President, Anne Cale became Secretary, and Sandy Tantillo was selected Treasurer.
The new officers were ably guided by faculty advisors, Miss C. Bishara, and Mr. R.
In the meeting which followed, several fund-raising activities were discussed. The variety
and originality of the suggested projects showed the trust placed in its new representa-
tives bythe Junior Class to be well founded.

Tom Weistlog: I like the High
School better than the Junior
High School because of the
more adult atmosphere.
Cynthia Barkley, I like itl
There are more people to
meet and more extracurricu-
lar activities to participate
in. However, I get more
homework which I don't have
time to do.
Mary Ann Puerner: I like the
freedom in the halls in High
School. The mixed grouping' of
classes is good because we meet
many people in the iunior and
Diane Wyrauch: There isn't too
much difference in the school
itself. We still get the same
amount of homework.
Charles Rader: The High School
is very nice but the lunch room
is rather crowded. There are
more nice girls here - and that
Jill Palumbo: The teachers are
friendly. I was really surprised
that the upperclossmen accept-
ed us as well as they did. Most
of us were afraid of coming to
the high school because we
were in the minority.

The Niagarian Staff, guided by Mrs. H. Donovan and
Miss A. McCabe, have donated a great deal of time
and effort to make this year's Niagarian the best ever.
Led by Co-Editors Elyse Olearczyk and Michael Puerner,
the staff introduced each facet of school activity. It is
their hope that the book will become a permanent part
of each student's memories. The theme which was se-
lected by the staFl is "Progress is the door to life."
Among the additions to this current yearbook are a
senior history, flags of the homeroom states, and a
The selling campaign was successfully launched by the
Variety Show, which had a vaudeville theme. High-
lighting the show was the election of a king and queen.

STUDENT COUNCIL OFFICERS: Joe Hurst, Curtis Bol-
den, Mr. A. Chille, Advisory Gwen Mackenna, Joe
Every homeroom at Niagara Falls High School is a state represented
in the Student Council by a governor and a lieutenant-governor.
The governors meet weekly to transact business pertaining to stu-
dent activities. A record of the meeting is sent to each homeroom
in the form of an agenda sheet. Thus the students are informed of
The Student Council this year sponsored a Spud-nut sale, the Sal-
vation Army Christmas baskets, and dances after home basket-
ball games, The proceeds from the dances go to the general stu-
dent fund, part of which will be used for a Block "N" dinner hon-
oring our athletes. The dances also promoted school spirit.
An innovation this year was the Tri-School Council, consisting of the
officers and two representatives from each of the three high
schools in Niagara Falls. Three times yearly this council met to ex-
change ideas and make suggestions for better coordination of ac-
tivities and proiects.

Coach James O'Shea encountered a gigantic 'rebuilding iob in his initial year as
cage mentor at Niagara Falls High School. The loss of the 'first seven players of
the i960-61 season left Coach O'Shea with few experienced players. Neverthe-
less, the Cataracts came up with a team that spelled danger to the first division
clubs throughout the season. The "Cataracts" improved steadily as the season
progressed, and after the second Kenmore-East game experienced a three game
winning streak going into the tinal two games against North Tonawanda and tra-
ditional rival and City Champs, Trott.
Niagara Falls High School can boast of two of the league's leading scorers in Ron
Bator and Leon Smith. We predict now that with the return of Frank Carter, Ron
Nabors, John Hayes, Pete Hartmans, Craig Finger, Lovelle Stevens and a sound
Junior Varsity squad, the Cataracts will be sound contenders for the league cham-
pionship next year.
Seniors Ron Bator, Leon Smith, John Goodfellow, George Zalocha, Jett Guerhing,
Bob Clayton, Joe Hurst, Wayne Landesman, and Tom Martin have instilled in the
returning team examples of time sportsmanship, the desire to win and uphold
the proud name of Niagara Falls High School.

Our track team last year had a typical year. We were
perennially strong in the dashes and field events, and
through the efforts of many fine seniors we were able
to earn a 5-3 record. We could count on wins from
Bob Jones in the high jump and broad iump, Millard
Ellis or Nick Rizzo in the hundred yard dash, Jim May
in the hurdle and Jerry Norgiel in the shot. Other sen-
iors were Don Thompson, Jerry Dunlop, Joe Smith,
James Broswell and Charles Glover.
Outstanding juniors include Curtis Bolden in the 880,
tin Pennington, Charles Glover, Millard Ellis, Joe Smith, Don Thomp-
son, Bob Jones, Frank Kopczynski, Charles Powloski, Joe Hurst,

Leon Smith in the hop-step and lump, Otis Rentord in
the dashes, Ollie Dozier, and Joe Hurst in the high
lump. Our miler last year was a sophomore Charles
Harding who should be back this year.
Individual honors must be given to Bob Jones and Mil-
lard Ellis for ettorts in the Section VI Class AAA meet
last year. Bob Jones made a double win in the high
iump and broad lump for ten points while Millard Ellis
added another seven points to give Niagara Falls a
third place in the meet.
CROSS COU TRY
In I96I, Niagara Falls High School was one of the last
N.F.L. schools to be introduced to a new sport, cross-
country. This is a sport which requires a great deal of
rigorous training and determination on the part of the
participants. The dual and triangular meets consisted of
a race anywhere trom two to two and a halt miles in

Every Tuesday afternoon a group of boys invade the

visor, Mr. J. O'Shea, supervises the boys while they
bowl. As in every league, good records must be kept,
and Carl Brown has been elected Secretary to take
care of this. A team of boys, composed of the best
bowlers in the league, represented Niagara Falls School
in the Spring Sectional meet in which we placed sec-
ond last year.
The Niagara Falls High School Tennis Team finished the
l96l season fifth in the Niagara Frontier League with
an overall record of 6 wins and 8 losses.
Captain Tom .larzab led the singles players in CI num-
ber of wins while in the doubles the team of Jerry Zipp
and Mark Canfield was prominent.
One high spot of the season was the second match with

best in promoting an enthusiastic school spirit and the
importance ot good sportsmanship. Under the supervi-
sion of Miss M. McDougall, these girls try to interest the
students in backing their team. After tedious hours of
practice, the cheerleaders stand before a roaring stu-
dent body and cheer on their team. ln addition to pro-
moting spirit, the varsity cheerleaders, captain, Bon-
nie Lutz, and co-captain, Dana Berman, fulfill other re-
sponsibilities. One of these is to aid in the advancement
of the colors during the opening exercises. Another is
to prepare and present entertaining pep assemblies.
