S OPQLUCLI' At this moment in our lives we realize that we must look at ourselves objectively and de- termine how much twelve years of school have equipped us for living, intelligently, in a com- plex, dynamic, and rapidly shrinking world. No longer can we be primarily concerned with the provincial trivolities of youth. Rather, as young adults we now must willingly under- take the serious responsibility for assuming a functionally mature role in life. PAGE FOUR Our goals are voluminous. However, we possess an awareness that the knowledge and experience gained at McKinley, over the past three years, will enable us to perform as capa- ble citizens in a democratic society, as well as facilitate the fulfillment of our dreams. Therefore, we look to what lies ahead of us with an enthusiastic confidence that we can face the challenges of the future.

Due to the early publication of the yearbook, it is impossible to give a com- plete rundown of the '59 baseball season. With the return of four lettermen and sev- eral boys who performed well in last year's various sandlot teams, prospects for another winning season look very bright for head coach Larry Pa1lante's diamondmen. NEO district champions in 1957 and semi-finalists in 1958, Niles was also run- ner-up in the Mahoning Valley League in 1958, bowing out in the final game.
