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 iwwm, 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- sibility. 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. Mr. Herbert Bothamley Miss Geraldine Mann 'Vie r"s-'nn Learn, andyou will learn sornethingg teach andyou will learn much more. Abbe Ernest Dimnet FA CULTT all E IlIIHHlllllIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEIIllumu e, i To the Class of 1966: As the class of 1966 approaches completion of its high school years, its graduates face a world filled with many opportunities and problems.

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 60 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- HIS TORT 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 winners. 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 Month. 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 Cornell University. 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 62 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 School. 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 STA TISTIC 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 U.N.C.L.E." 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 sleep. 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 Ernie Domanico. 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 way. 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 N.F.H.S.'s basketball team, Bob Torre and Dave Walos. An Indian tribe will do an ancient dance for the visitors. The dancers include Tom BuFfamonte, Larry Toni, Joe Mauldin and Albert Rinaldo. Finally, the picturesque scenery of the glens will be shown by guide Kathy Holt. 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 shining, 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 spent in pleasant ways.

This year, under the excellent guidance ot Miss Bertha Storey, has been one of the most successful in its entire history. The aim of the Chronicle is to keep its subscribers informed ot school functions such as sports, meetings, evening programs, and other activities. The able staff also adds a personal touch by including articles on school 'celebrities', plus a collection of many amusing selections to entertain the readers.

HO OR SOCIETY The Niagara Falls High School Chapter of the National Honor Society, under the super- vision ot Miss Elizabeth Mitchell and Mr. Glenn Smith, provides one of the school's most outstanding organizations. Students are inducted into the Honor Society on the basis of scholarship, service, lead- ership, and character and must maintain an 88 average throughout the year. Two of its main projects are the monitoring of the corridors during the day and the up- keep of a paperback bookstore. The society also sponsors a project to raise money to present one or two of its members with scholarships. This year the Honor Society oflicers were Craig Austin, President, Dominick DeFazio, Vice-president, Susan Shapiro, Secretary, and Robert Ewalt, Treasurer. Under the direction of such capable advisors and officers, the Honor Society is truly an asset to our school. 102 --K W. fn, 1, W M ,,,., K w:E,,k,.l., if -7 5 va., me ' 15? if 2 Vi 6 v 1- , ,KV 5 1 if 11.1, Q W, , ug" .NV ' , , sf!

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 demand. 104 Left to right FIRST ROW: Frederick Fadel, Jonathan Sax, Jim THIRD ROW: Mr. John Hagerty, Advisor: Craig Austin Ernest Hauser SECOND ROW: Guy Forcucci, Wayne Gladish, Nick De- Curto, Michael Gold, Thomas Sales, Mark Shatter, Mitchell Stumpo Fazlo Douglas Fadel, Frank Seliga, Peter Beckett, Vincent Bucci.

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.

Funds were raised in each homeroom from the student body. OFB- cers for the year were: Madlyn Costantino, President, Lynn Shaffer, Vice-President, and Joan Pino, Secretary. 115 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- fort put forth by the capable staff helped to make the library a credit to our school. Advised by Miss Virginia Donahue, the school store was a valuable asset to the student body. Essential school supplies were purchased daily before school and during the lunch periods. Under the guidance of Mrs. Clarissa Hyser, the clinic staff helped to meet the needs of the student body during the school day. The workers assisted in com- piling records, tiling cards, and treating minor illnesses. One of the busiest places at Niagara Falls High School was the guidance office. Miss Gretchen Erwin, Mrs. Edith Seatter, Mr. John Janowski, Mr. George Wood, and Mr. Herbert Swift advised students on their individual problems and future plans. Assisted by a capable staff of students, the guidance department performed many services for the entire student body. Preparing televisions and protectors for class utilization and film and sound equipment for assemblies was the task of the audio-visual group. The lighting, scenery arrangements, and special effects of stage productions are often as important as the performers. These behind-the-scene activities were carried on by the stage crew. Both the audio-visual and stage crew were under the di- rection of Mr. Robert Magee. The Radiological Detection group, organized by Mr. Kenneth Rideout, assisted the entire school in practicing safety to prevent casualties in the event of an enemy attack. The members of the group were trained to act as stretcher bearers and couriers. Throughout the year, the Usherettes was an essential part of all school functions. The girls, under the direction of Miss Mary lngrasci, ushered at such events as Parent's Night, Class Day, and Commencement exercises. lnformation pertinent to the student body was easily found in the bulletin board outside the main ofhce. Miss May Lanigan supervised the posting of various announcements. The showcases in the front hall contained many beautiful and clever displays throughout the year. These exhibits were capably co-ordinated under the super- vision of Miss Mariorie Helstrom. II6 Left to Right, STANDING OFF STAGE: Eira Cazazola, Linda Angela Incorvia, Joann Labosky.
