. THE JUNIOR CLASS
A PAINTED POST HIGH SCHOOL
In publishing The Poster of 1938, We have
attempted to nlake it represent the work of
the student body. By recording our achieve-
ments, we hope to inspire the classes of the
future. By exeniplifying the spirit of the
school, perhaps we shall be able to refresh the
nzeniories of our graduates.
To Norman B. Phelps, whose years of service
have won the respect and admiration of every
student, we dedicate The Poster of 1939.
XVith unfailing' loyalty, he has applied his
exceptional talent for the good of the school.

The History of The Senior Class
Once upon a time there was a class of '38, VVhat a class! They offered
an inspiration to all other classes. Quiet, you "mugs" who disagree! Vile
were set upon the earth to show these other crazy humans the lightg so we
started out by choosing:
President ...... ....... N ed Kelley
Vice President ............ Hill Montgomery
Secretary and Treasurer ...... Rheon Price
Class Advisor ................. Mr. Sanford
and by choosing our attractive rings until another should take its place.
VVith this "set up", we went ahead and made great progress financially
and socially. NVe had a llallowe'en dance, an Easter dance, a St. Patrick
dance, and several social hours.
Although "Bill" Sanford bluffed us along in his gruff way, saying that
we were making a pretty bad stab at earning our way to NVashington, most
of us worked willingly merely because we were working for the class of '38
Often our averages have disgraced us in the face of our under-classmen,
but what do we care about brains as long we have the old gang? Come ou.
"kids", don't give up your egoism now just because no one pays any attention
to your philosophy. Vile must have been destined for something besides a
"bunch of dopes".
Senior Class Will
VVe, the Class of 1938, of the Painted Post High School, Village of
Painted Post, Town of Erwin, County of Steuben, and State of New York,
being of sound and disposing mind and meinory, do make and declare this
to be our last VVill and Testament, in the manner followingg that is to say:
I. We bequeath:
A. We direct that all our just debts and expenses be paid after our funeral,
II. We bequeath:
A. To our teachers, our sincere appreciation for their efforts in trying to
pound Calthough they did take it too literallyb something into our heads.
B. To our faculty we also graciously return all the zeroes, all the sessions
after school, all the Hunks which they have kindly given us, with the parting
request that they be conferred as freely upon our successors.
C. To Mr. Ilall, we bequeath a student body which takes the right attitude.
D. To Mr. Clowc, We bequeath a grammar school full of pests.
E. Also, to the faculty, we leave our sincere colnmiserations over the fact
that they are losing the most brilliant class in the history of the school.
III. We bequeath:
A. To the Freshmen, our class spirit and best wishes.
B. To the Sophomores, our unlimited thirst for knowledge, and our Hin-
finite capacity for taking pains".
C. To the Juniors:
1. The rights, privileges and respects due to the Seniors - whatever
privileges in the hope that the Juniors may succeed.
2. Our loyal support in all their undertakings to raise money for their
3. The ability to win next yea1"s basketball games.
IV. We bequeath to the whole school:
A. Success in athletics.
B. Sineerest hopes for the immediate abolition of Regents.
V. We, also, bequeath separately and apart to each member of the Class
To Vtlalter Andrews: A soft davenport so that he may recline more
easily in history class.
To Beverdine BeGell: More thoughts for the home town boys and fewer
for a Heertain someonel' in California.
To Larry Bonham: A little more restraint concerning a certain Fresh-
man girl. I :A
To Shirley Borden: Something: to say: and a chance to say it, alone
with a few right answers.
To Rosemary Brace: A little less to say: it would sound better.
To Carl Brennan: One thousand cubic centimeters of ambition.

Senior Class Prophesy
Good evening, friends! This is your toastmaster, XValter Winchell,
speaking. This evening the class of 1938 is holding its fifteenth reunion.
This is just a glimpse of the many celebrities who are present!
Flash! You of the class of '38 remember how you went around singing,
humming, or whistling 'fl NVant to Be in VVinchell's Columnv? You do? Well,
at last you have all reached that goal.
Flash! Catherine Barrett, the Ulittlest big" girl in the class, is now Dean
Barrett of Vassar, college for girls, and she can hardly wear l1er English hat
for sheer pride.
Flash! Bill Bess, following up his high school days as a star athlete, is
now the captain of the successful Rugby team, which returned from England
victor over the team from Oxford, the school which so badly defeated the
American universities back in 1938,

fied the world by her stunning style creations-all you girls, here's your

be a sure cure for cancer.
Flash! Beverly Cunningham - the stately and dignitied Beverly - was

lllississippin. Remember those 90's in English, Beverly?
Flash! Lillian Dann, who broke the hearts of a good many of the callow
youths, recently published a statement that she had settled down to the life
of a spinster. How long will it last, Lillian?
Flash! Benson Dann, the class woman-hater, who has spent all his time
in his workshop, perfected television not more than a year ago, and can
manufacture the sets at such a low price that even the inhabitants of Shanty
Town can afford one.

panying himself with a Voice. Remember when he used to get his voice in

tirst task which was
very successful, was the sale of Christmas cards. After our good work at
selling these, we received our rings at Christmas time. From then up until
the Saint l'atrick's Dance, we received the benefits of some movies at which
we held candy sales. Next came the very successful St. Patrick's Dance, at
which much credit was given to the decorating committee.
Then came the long task of preparing the 1938 Poster. Several com-
mittees were appointed in order to make it one of the most outstanding ever
produced. To our class advisor goes much of the credit for its success. And
last of all - our Junior lrom, with balmy weather, a smooth orchestra, and
charming decorations all contributing' to make it a most enjoyable dance.
Thus we end a very successful year and now await the next semester
when we shall all be Seniors, and on the final stretch toward the long-
awaited Vtfashington trip.

Under the expert direction of Miss Andersen, the Senior Class of 1938
rose to new heights in theatrical interpretation in presenting' the three-
act comedy, "Girl Shyv, by Katharine Kavanaugh. On the nights of Novem-
ber 18 and 19, record crowds applauded the able acting of the entire cast.
The audience felt themselves drawn into the atmosphere of the humorous
complications of Tom Arsdale and Uke Stimson, in their bachelor apartment
at college. Tom, good-looking, rather serious, and very girl-shy, was aptly
portrayed by Lawrence Kelley, llis room-mate, Oke, a gray, irresponsible
tlippant young man who wasn't girl-shy, was competently played by Keith
Merrick. Barbara CBabsD Sanford, well handled by Anna Kimble, was a
sophisticated, cultured young girl who was attempting to win Tomls affections.
NVinifred Martin had the audience rocking' in their seats with her hi-
larious performance as Birdie Laverne, the talkative, unretined cleaning' lady
who was quite a-movie aspirant. Pretty, modern Peaches Carter, 0ke's present
weakness, was adroitly played by Mary Reynolds.
Tom's Aunt Caroline, a rather dominating woman, was well portrayed
by Beverly Cunningham. The dictatorial Mr. Arsdale was excellently played
by Glenn James. Edith Cook fitted very well into the part of Sylvia lVebster,
Ton1's pet aversion.
Asma, the colored maid. and Chuck Mayo, the uncouth friend of Birdie,
were very satisfactorily portrayed by Inez Ross and Robert Congdon. Carle-
ton Phillips most convincin,Q'ly played the part of the proverbial grind, Alfred
Tennyson lllurgatoyd, while Dean Marlow was equally well done by Merle
All the parts were exceptionally well performed by this talented cast
of characters. Congratulations, Seniors!

The Arrowhead, the school newspaper, serves the QIPZIIIUIIEII' school, and
to a lesser degree, the high school. lt is published monthly by thc pupils
of the elementary school.
The first Arrowhead, a dittoed cow of ten iawes, nut out February,
, . I 2- l .
1935, was well-received by the student body. Since 1936, the Arrowhead
has been mimeogxraplied.
The staff members serve only one semester so as to give a large number
of girls and boys the opportunity to work on the paper. They maintain
their positions by merit. As recognition for the service given, blue a11d while
felt emblems arc awarded to those members who have earned them. About
fifteen are awarded each term.
The Arrowhead has enjoyed financial success. A radio, several pictures,
and electric bulbs for the Cliristmas tree have been purchased and donated
to the school by the staff.

lessons was able to participate in the annual spring concert, April 5. lt
has made rapid progress under Miss Peelis baton and certainly will prove
to be of value to the new director.

ff! ff' Football
With the lightest team in the history ot' the school, Coach Collister again
produced a championship eleven. The team was undefeated throughout the
entire season, but they tied one game, 0-0, with Elmira Heights, for the
It was a green team that the coach worked into shape, since the only
regulars to return from last year were Jesse Cornell, Frank Smith, and Let
Lowery. The coach and the squad worked well together and they soon dc-
veloped a "hokus-pokus" style of lateral passing that baffled opponents
The longest run of the season was made by Let Lowery. On the
opening kick-off of the Waverly game, he received a lateral pass, which was
almost the entire width of the field, from Bob Smith, and ran 80 yards to
a touchdown. The team won this game 46-0.
The Elmira Heights game was the most important one of the year. The
two teams met on a very muddy Parsons Field. The Posters were the lighter
team, and every player fought very hard as they held the Heights to a
scoreless tie. By completing this game, and not being scored on, the team
in the last 15 games, has been scored on only once, by Owego. Owcgo made
The success of the team was undoubtedly due to the fact that there
were no individual stars and that the team worked together with perfection.
The value of football in high school, as well as for giving physical dc-
velopment to the players, is that it teaches them to think "under fire". It

teaches them to learn to give and take, and it teaches them to cooperate.
It teaches the students loyalty to the school, and it teaches them to be good

for the support given them by the school authorities, the student body and
theloyal fans Who followed the team.

Returning to the outdoors, the Painted Post Braves climbed into their
baseball suits and prepared to defend their league championship. They held
several practice sessions with Savona, to get in shape before the season
Bill Gethin took over the pitching' duties, and in the llornell game he
struck out 12 and allowed 3 hits. The team lost to Northside and U. F. A.
in succeeding weeks and then defeated,Haverling on home grounds. The
season is never over until the last game is played, so the team is in there
Hghtilig to retain its title.
There are many changes in the nine this year. Captain Dave Griffith
broke his leg in the llornell game, and it was necessary to change the team
to find a suitable catcher.

Regents - Fore and Aft
'Twas the week before Regents and all through the town,
Every student was looking at texts with a frown,
VVhen old Mr. Temptation stalked on the scene,
Deciding 'twas time that he intervene.
Ile created a turmoil, and said he desired
That students stop t'eramming" before they expired.
All students paid heed to this needless advice,
They put away books, and seampering like mice
Fled away to their hobbies, their toys and their girls.
They landed in the midst of soeietyis whirls.
lmmensely enjoying each dance and eaeh play,
Quite soon they forgot the "reckoning" day.
"XVhy bother,', said they, "to study and learn?
XYe'll pass, for we do, at the end of each term."
The morning of Regents dawned ol1, oh, so bright,
And the students assembled with heads oh so light.
After toiling three hours without much success,
The students resigned to enjoy noon recess.
When at last they returned to View the results,
The marks did much more than quicken their pulse.
Johnny B., said the paper, a mere sixty-four.
"Oh why, oh why, didn't l study more il"
Susie Q., written next, received fifty-two.
HI guess I should study a little more, too."
As their eyes seanned the paper, there loomed in the line,
For Miranda McKay, a whole eighty-nine.
"Gosh, kids, if we'd studied," quoth a sorrowful group,
"VVe'd be going to VV.-ashington with the rest of the troop."
Agreed: lt all is enough to make anyone daft-
But, my friends, that is Regents -+ both fore and aft.

Miss Helen Rose was at the wheel,
And feet all started pattering.

And Hpop" said, "No, no more, because
You might go on a Ubendern.

Essay on Men
It is my aim in life to protect my own sex, and there's only one thing
I can think of to protect them from, and that UMENH. VVe women were
put on this earth to brighten it, and to help improve it. Beautiful thoughts
make beautiful faces. What man has beautiful thoughts? We women look
upward to find the sunshine, and men look around to find the moonshine. Men
are anxious to wring your finger, but when they get you, they want to wring
your neck. Men, M-E-N, put an 'tal' and ue" and what do you get? Men have
walked on women since the time of Adam, and their feet are large. It's
no wonder the footprints of time are stamped on the faces of so many of
the married women I have seen.
When Iget older, maybe I'd like to run for president, but do you suppose
I could? I should say not! All I'll be running for is groceries. All of us
young girls sometimes think of love's young dream, but I don't think we'd
better carry it any farther or We'll be having matrimonial nightmares.
Fellow-women, if a man asks for your hand, give it to him on the side of
the head. That is my advice. You can see I have said little about the fair
sex. They speak for themselves.

To Song Lovers
Wie all like to hear the popular songs of the year. I think we have
some very good examples of them in the small village of Painted Post.
Yes - very good examples!
Consider these: Bud Hedden does his best in attempting to Udatcu
"Ten Pretty Girls". "Love VValked Right In" to the fast-beating hearts of
the famous Ginny and Doug match. Bill James, '4VVild Irish Rose", Mary
Dec, would stand out in any crowd. Beverdine and Keith are just a little
on the "Sentimental Side", don't you think? Bob James said, MI NVas Doing
All Right". We all are wondering what happened.
Mr. Clicquennoi can see nothing else but "Miss Minnerly's Face Before
Him" during seventh period study hall. Geezil asks Sarge, his Juliet, '4IIow'd
ja Like to Love Me?" Then comes "Billsy', with "Trust in Me", and cute
little Mary Abbott smiles. Red Thompson thinks "Every Day's a Holiday",
while Jesse Cornell HLives the Life He Loves".
Yes, we all like to hear the popular songs of the year.

If there ever was an important letter, this is it. I am about to picture
in my best manner of typewriting the surprise party that the English .ll
class gave at my house. I came home at seven o'clock, and the lights were
all out. I was in a good mood, and the dark didn't seem to bother me. li
took off my coat before I turned on the lights. Just as I went to put on a.
light, I heard a tumult of voices scream USURPRISEH.
Ella, the sight was a t'knockout". There was the whole English H
class pouring out of nowhere all dressed up in freak costumes. The thing
that caught my eye first was Ethel Batley in a baby dress coming out of at
book case. Next I saw 'tI'inkie" and Duane coming out from under the table
dressed as the "little Dutch Boy" and 'fthe little dutch girlv. As I glanced
across the room, I saw the most unusual sight that I had ever seen. Miss
Schneider came out of the top of the piano dressed as '4Mickey Mouse".
Following her came Roy Smith, Harold Simonson, and VValter Love dressed
as the UThree Blind Miceu. Catherine Vanderhoif and Eleanor Hawks came
out from behind the radio made up as 'Tick and Patn. Ella, this was a treat,
and I certainly wish that you could have been there to see it all.
The sights that followed were just as absurd as those that I have pre-
viously described. After all the lost were found, the party proceeded in full
swing. XVe danced the 'tBig Apple", and Miss Schneider is a very good
dancer. That tail of hers bothered her so much that she took the shears and
clipped it off. We soon got tired of dancing, so we started playing games.
VVe played "Blind Man's Bluff" and everything noisy. We concluded the
party by serving refreshments consisting of ice cream soup and crazy cake.
About three o'clock in the morning the guests decided that they had
better go home. It was a sad departure after such a wonderful evening.
June LeValley went home mad because we wouldn't let her have more than
five dishes of ice cream soup. She was so mad that when she went out sho
slammed the door and broke the glass. Just as the door slammed. I found
myself lying on the bedroom floor hollering, ttlieValley, you'll pay for thislll
You know Ella, this was a dream it there ever was one.

It's funny the way some individuals in this school are allowed to sleep
and walk around in class any time they wish! You can surely see who the
teachers' pets are.
Ilnly yesterday in English class, when everyone was supposed to be
writing a composition, one person folded his arms and dropped to sleep.
Nothing was said to him, and everyone was given the impression that the
teacher was willing to let him sleep as long as he wished.
In the library, this certain pet is also shown partiality. IIe walks from
room to room, never bothering to look at the books and magazines, or to do
his lessons. To tell you the truth, however, I think this is logical, and not
the least bit unusual because you can tell at a glance that such such a thing
as studying and reading would be foreign to him.
Of course, you are wondering what person has such a happy school
lite, and I am willing to let you in 011 the secret because this lucky individual
is Judy, the dog - not a "He" - but a "She",
Dedicated to Miss Schneider and Miss Scott.

To Our - - - Friends?
Deah, deah, underclassmen! Ilarken While your finished product gives
you the cream of the crop, what experience and Ovaltine have done for mr-.
Strange to behold, we, who are still with the Senior clan, have failings.
First of all, you want to live right. You also want to get right down
to the fine points, Mr. Cross says. Between you and me, there's a grand
pencil sharpener in Mr. CloWe's room. Take it from Sanford and us. Don't
let gravity hold you down. Above all, do your exercises. Keep cool, for
warm things expand. Never talk through your hat. You're apt to get
smothered or break your vocal chords. The latter would be a shame, of course.
You've learned what we haven't been, Actions speak for themselves.
Pray forgive, not forget us future "has beens" while carrying on for dear
old "Alma Mammyv. P. P. H. S. remember us in your prayers and dreams.
