BOARD OF ED UCA T10
The Niagara Falls Board of Education, originating in
l892, is the administrative body of our educational
system. lt has been an outstanding factor in the mold-
ing and the maintaining of a dynamic scholastic at-
The general aim of American education is the fullest
possible development of the individual within the
framework of our present industrialized democratic
society. The Board members' ultimate goal is to prop-
erly prepare us, so that we may be able to face and
cope with the complexities of life following our school
years. They stress the need for the individual to be an
Mr. Harry Abate
educated person, to be an educated member of the
family, to be an educated producer or consumer, and
to be an educated citizen as a member of the commu-
nity. The educated American might well measure him-
self in terms of the obiectives of self-realization, hu-
man relationship, economic efliciency and civic respon-
For their invaluable contributions to our future lives,
we the students, sincerely thank these men of the
Board of Education for their willingness to serve so
unselfishly for the youth of our community.

We love thee dear old High,
With your halls of learning grand,
Your colors we'll hold high,
To the front wefll proudly stand.
Always, always, staunch and true,
Always, always, proud of you,
And your praises loud we'll sing,
We to thee our homage bring.
Nine 'rahs for Niagara Falls,
Nine forthe Red and Gray
To duty now she calls,
That success may with us stay.
So we pledge ourselves anew,
N.F.H.S. we'll be true,
And for you we'll climb the height.
Niagara, you're all right.
A. Gow Brownell '14
September 8, 1963 marked the advent of 795 sus-
picious sophomores to Niagara Falls High School. We
confused the upperclassmen with the presence of our
large class, since we were the first complete class of
sophomores to enter N.F.H.S. after the completion of
the new annex, In that year, we were introduced to
the l.B.M. machine which produced our program
schedules and later our report cards. Automation was
not a complete success. Equally unsuccessful, as far
as the sophomores were concerned, was the lengthen-
ing of the school day by the Board of Education,
happily, this innovation was short-lived.
The sophomores then elected their class oftlcers to
settle the confusion. They were: Diane Perdikas,
President, Deborah Plumer, Vice-President, Roberta
Payne, Secretary, and Robert Falsetti, Treasurer. They
were guided and assisted by our class advisors, Miss
Barbara Yandian and Mr. Vern Abel.
That opening year brought great excitement, some
expectations, and some tragedies. The filming of
Route 66 filled everyone with the expectation of see-
ing our great city on television, although the show
never quite made the air due to technical difficulties
-so they say! At about the same time, the world
renowned "Beatles" made their formal entrance into
the music world bringing along with them a whole
new creation of fads and fashions.
ln November, we were stunned by the tragic death
of President John F. Kennedy. lt was a great shock
and disappointment not only to the students but to
the people of the nation.
The first appearance of our classmates in the field of
sports proved interesting. The Junior Varsity football
team, led by some of our sophomores, achieved first
place in the Junior Varsity League. The sophomore
year marked the beginning of our wrestling team,
and although it did not become league champion,
the team became a prominent addition to the sport
activities at the school.
The Fall of T964 brought us back as the iovial iuniors
of Niagara Falls High School. We soon elected our
class ofhcers to guide us in our second year. They
were: Anita Bazzani, President, Alan Rennie, Vice-
president, Steve Ashby, Treasurer, and Linda Munger,
Secretary. Our class officers were helped along by
our advisor Miss Clara Bishara.
Our second year also brought many new creations
of fads. Boys with extra long hair, girls with pierced
ears, James Bond, and skateboards were among the
newest crazes. It was a year of "firsts" when the
American Field Service was formed and Pheng Phieng,
our first foreign student, was graduated. Our photo-
genic mayor, E. Dent Lackey, made an appearance at
our school to present our Varsity Football Team the
"Mayor's Trophy" for being intra-city champions.
That year brought the political scene into focus with
the election of Lyndon B. Johnson as President of our
country, carrying his "New Society" with him. The
national election was not the only one being con-
ducted. The student body of N.F.H.S. was carrying
on its own election of its Student Council. Elected to
govern the student body were: Anthony Serianni,
President, Ron Anderson, Vice-President, Debbie
Plumer, Treasurer, and Mary Trapasso, Secretary.
Guy Forcucci was elected president of the Forensic
Society, while Jim Hauser was busy winning the finals
of the Society's annual oratorical contest. Mitchel
Stumpo was chosen to head the '65-'66 Chronicle
staff and, in March, many of our talented juniors
played in the Drama Club's production of Arsenic
and Old Lace which was a great success.
ln the line of sports, our basketball team reached a
new high scoring record of iO4 points over North
Tonawanda. Coach James O'Shea announced his re-
tirement as head basketball coach at the end of his
team's i6-2 season. Our football team was renamed
the Power Cats that year by its members. This same
year saw the birth of the Niagara Falls Varsity Club
which is composed of members of all the varsity letter
As serious seniors, we returned to the hallowed halls
of N.F.H.S. in September of l965. We were looking
forward to an exciting year. The Senior Class ofhcers
chosen were: Luciano Giampa, President, Kathy Ruff,
Vice-president, Diane Perdikas, Secretary, and Rich-
ard Brezing, Treasurer. Miss Clara Bishara, Mr.
Robert Rosa and Mr. Robert Simpson accepted the
task of advising the senior class.
Our senior year marked the arrival of a foreign
visitor, Taking a trip across the ocean was our French
exchange student, Francoise Sylvestre, who spent her
senior year at N.F.H.S.
Honors were accorded our class when Anne Por-
reca and Joanne Labosky were chosen as National
Merit Semi-Finalists. Greg Brinda was the second
highest scorer in the Niagara Frontier League, and
Tom Buffamonte, Luciano Giampa, and Greg Brinda
were picked as members of the city's all-star football
team. Also Luciano Giampa was selected for the Ex-
change Club's award of Outstanding Senior of the
The social activities of the senior class began with
a record hop, followed by a Student Council Hoote-
nanny. Both were a great success. The Christmas As-
sembly on December 2l was excellent. The choir sang
the traditional carols, but instead of the usual en-
semble in flowing robes, the carols were sung in a
cozy setting of a living room. The band and choir also
brought some fame and good fortune to N.F.H.S. The
band was fortunate to participate in two annual
Band Days at the State University at Buffalo and at
The Class Day activities were held May 26, at the
Parkway Inn, The dinner and festivities of that day
will not be forgotten. The Senior Prom, held on June
24th at the Parkway lnn, was a glamorous and excit-
ing conclusion to the history of the Class of T966.

Testators: Suzanne Kianoff and Guy Forcucci
We, the statisticians of the Class of 1966, proudly
announce the records set by a most outstanding and
intellectual group of students. These intellectuals are
the "masts" ever to stroll through the corridors of
Niagara Falls High School. In 1948, as our American
soldiers returned from overseas, thankful that World
War ll was over, 669 war babies were born in this
universe who were destined to become members of
the largest graduating class of Niagara Falls High
We have been under the education of one school or
another for a period of thirteen years. As gradua-
tion approaches, the tension of the intellectual giants
mounts as they prepare to go out and "set the world
straight." We leave behind us 77,760,000 seconds
spent at Niagara Falls High School. We also leave
the 2.5 books carried home by the average senior
each night in our permanently closed lockers. We also
relinquish much of the responsibility which was be-
coming too heavy for our poor weak shoulders.
As we make the weekly Saturday afternoon "cruise"
down Main Street, we spot the average 5' 9V2"
and 155 pound senior boy and the 5' 4" and 111
pound senior girl walking hand in hand down the
street with Cupid following closely behind. This
couple is one of a minority of seniors to wear glasses,
and they are eighteen years old. They are talking
about their future college plans. Today is their day
off, as they happen to be a part of the majority of
seniors to have working papers in use. We've npw
followed them into a music store, where they're play-
ing everyone's favorite song, "Eve of Destruction".
They look at the popular type of albums by their
favorite group, the "Rolling Stones". They see the
average senior's favorite singers' records on display,
those of Barbra Streisand and Johnny Mathis. Be-
cause of the large crowd in front of the Rapids Thea-
ter, they wonder what is playing. Oh, a double fea-
ture, our seniors' favorite movies, "Goldfinger",
featuring that popular Sean Connery, and "The Ox-
Bow Incident", starring the vivacious Sophia Loren,
the seniors' favorite actress.
Now our romantic couple see Jim Oleniczak, the best
dressed senior boy, and Madlyn Costantino, the
most humorous girl, standing on the corner in front
of Jenss. At the same time, they observe that most
scholastic boy, Dan Ensminger, and that scholastic
girl Joanne Labosky ambling down the avenue talk-
ing over Einstein's theory. As our ideal couple enter
Jenss, they bump into the most handsome senior, Mike
Gallina, who is talking to Rose Ciambrone, the most
friendly of all seniors, together with Kathy Ruff, the
best dressed senior girl. As these popular seniors de-
part from the store, they begin to exchange the latest
gossip of the seniors.
It is decided by some to break up this group by their
announcing they are going swimming, the favorite
sport of most seniors. The others decide to go home
to prepare for the evening's entertainment. As they
enter their respective homes, each finds Mom cooking
his most delicious food, steak. Instead of helping with
the preparation, each one seems to pick up the
Gazette and to turn to the comics and read "Pea-
nuts", the most popular comic strip for seniors, As din-
ner is announced, each senior enioys his favorite in-
door sport by being first at the table and last to
leave. After their scrumptious dinner, the average
senior occupies two hours each night doing his home-
work, English being his most enjoyable subiect and
math being his most disliked course.
Since no member of the senior class wishes to be con-
sidered rude, he spends one hour and thirty minutes
on each of his personal telephone calls. Since all
seniors have Hnished their favorite book, Gone With
The Wind, the average senior patiently awaits each
week his favorite television show, "Man From
For a "night on the town", most seniors go to the
teen's favorite hangout, Pee Wee's. On their way,
many frequently see Mr. Richard DeMunda, their
favorite male teacher, polishing his "cool" car again,
as if it doesn't shine enough. Others, while walking
down Pine Avenue, wave to Mrs. Eugenia De Fran-
cesco, their favorite female teacher, as she drives by
in her green Wildcat. At Pee Wee's, some of the gang
is sitting around, while others are doing the "ierk",
their favorite dance. Cindy Frisina, the most athletic
girl, is often found dancing with Tom Buffamonte, the
most humorous senior boy. Greg Brinda, the most
athletic boy, and Craig Austin, the senior boy most
likely to succeed, are talking over Student Council
problems with Tony Serianni and Debbie Plumer, the
most popular senior boy and girl. Nancy Armeli and
Michelle Ligamarri, the most talkative girls, are gab-
bing away to the most affable senior boy, Rich
Colosi. Everything goes into a deep silence. Everyone
turns toward the door. Look, here comes Denise Cor-
tese, the most attractive girl. No wonder all the
males are falling all over their own feet. Even Though
she's here, Jonathan Sax, the most talkative guy, is
still sitting in the corner. Of course, he's talking the
ear off Judy Baumgartner, the girl most likely to suc-
ceed, and Mary Trapasso, the most courteous senior
girl. lt's really been a great night, but now it's time
to leave. Each senior eventually bids each other
goodbye, because he must get his eight hours beauty
Thus we can see that these interesting statistics con-
Hrm, without contradiction, that the references made
by the class historians prove that this group of seniors
is the "bestest of the mostest"!
Statisticians: Anthony Serianni and Stan Wright.
ln 1968, it was discovered that Stan Wright possessed
a supernatural understanding of space travel. He
became the head of the aeronautical program at
Cape Kennedy. Shortly after, Joe Hlavenka and Lu-
ciano Giampa landed on the moon and liked it so
much, they decided to stay. After the passage of
three decades, Joe and Luciano have been requested
to return to the United States for personal tours with
their famous rocket powered by Greg Brinda and
They will make their first stop in New York City,
where they will witness a tremendous musical pro-
duction under the direction of Craig Austin featuring
Nick "Barrymore" DeFazio and the vivacious Claudia
Raham. Lydia Colosi, the loquacious publicity agent,
is the permanent audience. The musical score has
PR OPHE S T
been composed by the multi-talented Bob Jones, and
the distinctive costumes designed by Vogue's editor,
the renowned Ilene Wake. The skillfully painted
scenery is the creation of John Campbell and Janis
Golanka. The choreography has been under the su-
pervision of Cindy Ramos.
From New York City, the duo will travel to Albany
to visit the state leaders headed by New York State's
first woman governor, Susan Shapiro. The Demo-
cratic controlled Assembly has as its leader, Guy For-
cucci, the Republican Senate Maiority Leader is Ernest
Curto. Just prior to the arrival of the distinguished
guests, a terrible tragedy occurred. The reticent
Patrick Snyder collapsed of suffocation during his
last filibuster. The garrulous Jonathan Sax even-
tually revived Patrick by mouth to mouth resuscitation.
From Albany, the astronauts will iourney to Niagara
Falls by chartered plane with the Bazzani sisters as
pilot and co-pilot. They will be greeted by Chief of
Police Gary Sankes and a fire department squad
headed by Jay Buffan. They will be introduced to the
world renowned Nobel Prize winner, Mitchel Stumpo.
Incidentally, a greater honor was conferred upon
Mitchel when he was given honorary membership in
the N.F.H.S. Honor Society. The duo will also visit
the high school where they will find Denise Cortese,
Bernie Sobczyk and Sharlane Bennett teaching
classes filled with boys. This fact illustrates that the
l.B.M. machines can "be fixed."
Washington will be the next stop on the itinerary.
Here Joe and Luciano will be introduced to President
Anthony Serianni and his cabinet. His Secretary of
State is Kathy Ruff, his Secretary of the Treasury is
Jim Hauser, his Secretary of Defense is lan Scho-
field. Debbie Plumer is Secretary of the Interior and
Lynn Shafer is Secretary of Commerce. President
Serianni has iust appointed John Miller to head the
poverty program. Rich Brezing, because of previous
experience, has become Director of the Budget. He
will "meet the press" which is directed by Judy Baum-
gartner, Tom Killian and Greg Mitchell.
The duo will next be greeted in sunny California by
Bill Lang, a prosperous executive. They will be treated
to a presentation of the Three Stooges iEd Salacuse,
Dan Sofia, and Frank Vaccarellai which is under the
supervision of Mike Gold. Candy Proudfoot will en-
tertain them by singing folk music. Steve Ashby will
allow them to see his television orogram, "The Fugi-
tive." This week Steve is running from Tom Carella,
who, in turn, is escaping from Mr. D'Angelo. An elite
banquet will be held in honor of Luciano and Joe.
Master of Ceremonies for this important event will
be Noel Touchette. Father John Bobbera and Sister
Donna Destino will give the invocation and benedic-
tion respectively. The speakers will be Stan Pietras
on "Listening to One's Own Voice" and John Schultz
on "Bob Dylan."
After the dinner, they will enjoy a wrestling match
whose contestants are, in the heavyweight class, 300
pound Mark Lazeration against 310 pound Jan Igras.
The middleweight competition is between he-man
Marv Shimmel and anyone crazy enough to chal-
lenge him. In the lightweight classification is the amaz-
ing Greg St. Onge taking on the determined Bob
Laster, the agile Larry Ponzi and the rough and ready
Jerry Biamonte, all at the same time. Simultaneously,
Tom Gwozdek and John Cox will compete in the
latest sport's fad, a sleeping contest. Giant Ron Lon-
berger and speedy Paul Parise will have a drag race
down the aisles to attempt to wake them up.
From California, they will fly to Hawaii to be met by
millionaire hotel owner, the handsome Pete Woolver-
ton. Pete's associate, Kim Reeves, owns a biological
plant filled with turtles which he feeds his own con-
coctions. Employed by Pete's hotel is the friendly Tom
Heck, who led the United States to victory in the
tennis matches for the Davis Cup. Mike Slipko is the
golf instructor at the hotel. He will show the duo the
finesse in hitting a two iron. Mike, incidentally, won
the U.S. Open. The head lifeguard is Mark Morath,
who recently swam the English Channel the wrong
The astronauts will now head for Africa. They intend
to see the dedicated missionary, Mark Wineburgh, who
is teaching the Swalks how to take College Boards.
They will also see the two legendary men of

the visitors. The dancers include Tom BuFfamonte,

the picturesque scenery of the glens will be shown by

Donna McDougald, the head of the Smithsonian ln-
stitute, had great hopes that Joe and Luciano would
decide to remain on earth and donate their capsule
to the institution. It looks as if she is going to be very
disappointed. They are now ascending into their
rocket. They think that the United States is dull and
unchallenging. Americans are too concerned with
trivial matters as college boards, proms, and colleges.
Un the moon, they feel more at home, more inde-
pendent and industrious. A cloud of fire is soaring
into oblivion as the final glimpse of the rocket is seen
Maybe, in another decade, some lucky Americans will
go on a luxurious tour to the moon.
Prophets: Susan Shapiro and James Hauser.
CLA SS POEM
DO N07 DESPAIR
Do not despair.
The future is not dim and far away
but right before us
urging us toward our goal.
This beige-brick home
is not a shuttered building
forever in the past.
The knowledge that we gained
while in this place
forever with us will remain
to help us o'er the obstacles
that dot our path.
Do not mourn or sing a dirge to youth,
but ever look to youth as pleasant thoughts
of pleasant days
in pleasant ways.
Ifnooking steadzbf at the door fyfoploortu-
my will sureQ2 open it to success.

JOH MARSHALL CL UB
The debating club of Niagara Falls High School, the
John Marshall Club, has been functioning for the past
ten years. Each member must be able to express him-
self in debate on many topics pertaining to citizen-
ship education or current events.
One of the club's annual events was its participation
in the model United Nations. Each group selects the
nation it would like to represent and familiarizes itself
with the nation's problems and cultures. The discussion
which follows is a duplication of the nation's proce-
dure for coping with the United Nations.
Advisor to the group was Mr. Rollin Wiseman of our
Social Studies Department. Without his guidance, this
year's officers Mitchel Stumpo, President, Wayne
Gladish, Vice-president, Patrick Snyder, Secretary, and
Donald Burford, Treasurer, would not have been able
to function as successfully as its aims and objectives

THE FORE IC SUCIETT
Good fellowship, and practice in public speaking and debating-the purpose of one of
the school's oldest and most selective organization-the Forensic Society. At formal dinner
meetings held on alternating Tuesday nights at the members' homes, the participating
students are exposed to a variety of programs. The design of the year's agenda includes
presentations by prominent community members, prepared group discussions and debates,
impromptu discussions and individual speeches, and the annual inter-club oratorical
competition. After weeks of elimination, the student who is judged the winner by three
qualified professional men of the community has his name engraved on the school plaque.
Other functions of the Forensic Society include one service proiect for the community,
one money-raising proiect, one social activity, and the annual Fathers' and Sons' Banquet.
This year, the Forensic Society was under the capable supervision of Mr. John Hagerty
and leadership of President, Guy Forcucci, Vice-President, Ernest Curto: Secretary,
Craig Austin, and Treasurer, Nick DeFazio. The Society is totally proud of the individual
progress, development, and enjoyment received by each member as a result of his par-
ticipation in the organization.

SER VICE ORGANIZA TIONS
Essential to the success of any scholastic program are the time and effort con-
tributed by the student body. Many students at Niagara Falls High School
freely donated their time to its various sewice organizations for the efficient
functioning of the entire school.
The distribution and collection of attendance sheets was carried on by girls
who volunteered their study halls. As well as assisting with attendance records,
the girls also helped with other ohice tasks. Miss Adeline Dominanni and
Mrs. Hua-Nien Yin supervised the organization of this group.
The library, fundamental to many student activities, functioned efficiently dur-
ing the school year. Under the supervision of Miss Marjorie Blackmar, the ef-

rection of Mr. Robert Magee.
