out the school year.
We are carrying out the tradition of the last' yearls Senior Class in
editing the second volume of the Rocket.
Our treasury was opened by the proceeds from a scrap paper drive.
We enjoyed decorating our tree and exchanging gifts at our Christ-
mas party. The Senior Class held a sleigh ride party which reached its
climax at the school. Games were enjoyed by all. Refreshments were
The lime light of the year was our Senior Play "Crazy Mix-upf,

and H. Mary Anderson, our salutatorian.
I HAVE called you together upon this solemn occasion to listen to the
last will and testament of my client and to receive from her dying hands
the few gifts she has to bestow in her last moments.
"We, the Class of I94S, being in as good mental condition as possible,
and in much better temper than usual, do make this, our last will and
testament, to dispose of our possessions as follows:
To our dear faculty we leave a succession of restful nights and peace-
ful dreams. To them we also leave all of the amazing knowledge and
startling information that we have furnished them from time to time in
our examination papers.
We leave to the junior Class our most valuable properties: Our self-
satisfaction, our importance and our wisdom, all of which we have in
enormous quantities. 4-
To the Sophomore Class we leave oui patience. They will need it as
it is the only way to endure the juniors.
To the Freshmen we leave any overlooked cuds of gum we may have
left on the underside of desks, banisters, or any likely place. We have
had to rid ourselves of these in too much of a hurry to choose a more de-
sirable means of disposal.
To Harold Roush we leave Mary's list of unreasonable excuses for
We leave .Ioan's excess energy to Doris Eckert.
Richard Sweeney, we feel, needs Mary's song arrangements.
To Bryan Nagel we leave a contract with Ipana Co. for flashing his
To anyone who needs it, Roland Dole's bluff.
To Mrs. Chapman we leave an enthusiastic health class.
We have induced Helen to leave her self-composure at a basketball
game to Lucille Crandall.
Roger leaves his place as star of the basketball team to Dick Hardin-
ger. but we could not persuade him to leave his good looks also.
To Marilyn Button we leave a board on which to sharpen her catty

Do you believe that dreams can be prophetic? They say that Abra-
ham Lincoln had prophetic dreams. I'm no Lincoln, of course, but I did
have the strangest dream last night. It concerned you, and Mary, and
well, in fact, all of our Senior Class.
Wliile strolling down Memory Lane, and lingering by waysides of
Reverie, I stumbled upon a path leading to the I'IllflH'K'. Ifither side of the
twisted road was lined with homes, some unassuming, some pretentious.
Leading up to each house was a pathway which opened onto the road by
means of a latticed gate bearing the name of the occupant.
The thunder of approaching hoofbeats seemed to shatter my peace-
ful mood. Turning, I saw Roland Dole astride his horse. He spoke and
I learned that he was now a ranch owner. I"Iis main pride and ioy being
his jersey cattle.
As I resumed my journey I noticed a crowd gathering nearby, curi-
ously I joined them. Marvin Carlson, the top ranking lawyer and poli-
tician of the day, delivered a memorable oration, "The Rights of a Man
in a XVoman's Wforldf'
On entering Marilyn Munson's cozy living room, my attention was
drawn to her clever magazine illustrations scattered about. One of these
illustrations pictured a man down on all fours examining a suspicious de-
sign on a rug, through a magnifying glass. In one pocket was a pair of
handcuffs, and in another was a notebook entitled "Clues',. The charac-
ter, with a triumphant gesture, next lifted his head and I found Lester
XVevers to be the "Sherlock Holmes" of the day.
I next entered the doors of education and learning. Helen Wozowicz,
Professor of Creative Poetry, graciously admitted me to her office.
The flash of lights and rolls of film drew my attention to a movie
lot. As I peered over the shoulder of a photographer, I saw Daphine Con-
nor saunter into the spotlight as an understudy for Mae West.
The strains of music pierced my ears and my steps bent toward the
source. The long haired, unkempt figure, none other than Alec Perkins,
was rendering his greatest achievement, an arrangement of the scale in C

Parents, Teachers, and Friends:
We of the class of 1945 are approaching one of the greatest mile-
stones in our careers. Now that our school days are drawing to a close, we
are anticipating the challenge of the future, fully realizing there are many
new experiences awaiting us.
Behind us lay twelve years of learning, in which our teachers have
helped to prepare us to make the most of the opportunities we may en-
counter. Some say that an opportunity will come but once and we must
be ready to recognize and accept it. Of course, it is impossible that an
equal privilege will come to all, but it is true that people in the past have
failed to recognize or take advantage of the possibilities opened to them.
Many people believe that there is something beyond their reach
which is essential to their obtaining success. However, it is often the per-
son who seizes the nearest goal and the unused opportunity to achieve
his ambition who succeeds.
We are the future generation and we must be ready to accept our
place among our fellow citizens. We must be prepared to face the diili-
cult task of carrying on our government and preventing future wars.
As Sumner Welles has so ably said: "The people of the United States are
once more afforded the chance to offer their co-operation and their lead-
ership to other nations. They are granted another opportunity to help to
make a world in which they, and all peoples, can safely live."
There are many of us who will not receive additional education
through formal schooling, but we will acquire much knowledge through
the school of experience. To the world at large our graduation is of little
significanceg to us it is one of the most memorable events in our lives.
Knowing that we have your best wishes for our future success means
much to us. Having followed our troubles and victories with sincere in-
terest during our school years, we feel that you will share in our happiness
tonight. In the past your friendship has been an inspiration and a comfort
to us, and we are looking forward to your assistance in the future.
So long as men shall be on earth
There will be tasks for them to do,
Some way for them to show their worthg
Each day shall bring its problems new.
And men shall dream of mightier deeds
Than ever have been done before:
There always shall be human needs
For men to work and struggle for.
H. Mary Anderson
Parents, Teachers, and Ifriends:
Tonight we gather here, a major stop, on the voyage of life. In the
past iz years this voyage has sent us through many winding and twisting
courses. These courses were often so crooked that we sometimes wondered
what we had just passed and what we were about to encounter. This voyage
of life has often seemed so complicated and tiresome that we were tempted
to drift with the current. XY'e would drift to some dangerous point and
there be righted by one of our teachers or some other helpful individual.
We have managed to sail those winding and twisting courses in the
years past and we seem little the worse for our experiences. On the con-
trary, we have met with problems which seemed insurmountable, and we
have solved them. These experiences will help us when we leave here
tonight to sail out into a longer and more troubled course of life. Wlieim
we resume our voyage tomorrow we cannot afford to drift with the cur-
rent. For we will not have teachers and others to correct our course and
send us from the treacherous rocks which may mean a disastrous end and
our ultimate downfall.
Many of us who have fought and Won the battle of the school rooms,
will sail from here tonight to enter a battle which is much larger and
greater in importance. We hope by the grace of God that this battle
may soon be won and when we gather here again next year that the stu-
dents will not have to look forward to this great war.
W'e realize that it was the silent and active influence of our principal
and teachers in our school activities that has laid the solid foundation
which makes it possible for us to be here tonight. XWe thank them for their
help and inspiration.
Wfe also want to thank the Board of Ifducation for the privileges
which it has granted us and for the use of the school building to carry on
part of our social activities.
To our parents and the rest of the community, we want to express
our thanks for your cooperation and support in our major activities.
Fellow classmates, we have been blessed with some of the best gifts
of life-an education, a wealthy country, and a sense of security. Our
forefathers, with far less opportunities than we have enjoyed, built this
country and endowed us with these gifts. I.et us now resolve as we battle
for a position in this world, that we shall do all in our power to improve
and enlarge upon the freedoms and opportunities to which our posterity
will be entitled.
So may we leave here tonight to continue the voyage of life with
a spirit of courage and a resolution that we will succeed in making these
United States, yes and the whole world a better place in which to live.

As the year draws swiftly to a close, We look upon the past.
The years since we were Freshmen have flown exceedingly fast
We had our foolish notions, yet with teachers as our guide.
We approach our graduation with a sentiment of pride.
We crammed our minds with learning, which we looked upon as vain.
But future lay before us, with its ecstasy and pain.
Now we staunehly face tomorrow-the future we have planned.
On our four years of training, we can safely stand.
As the years ahead go rolling, we'll recall the things we've done.
We'll value all our memories for our future welll have won.
As we take our year book from the shelf, our school days to renew,
We'll think of all our classmates and the school that saw us through.
Letls admit it fairly, that we're proud of our dear school,
For the work its done to educate, and supply us with a tool.
To her alone our hearts go out, for the achievement it has brought.
For without her help, our future could never have been wrought.

The name on the gate was that of Roger Ilarkness, now a four-star gen-
eral in command of Ll XVAC division.
I soon grew tired and stopped to rest under a great tree. There was a
newspaper lying nearby and I picked it up. The headlines spelled the
name of I-I. Mary Anderson, I read on. Mary had won fame and
fortune for her unique and sophisticated hair styles. All of the society
women were copying them.
I looked further into the paper and saw another well-known name,
Geneva Turner. Her "Advice To The Love I.orn,' articles were sweeping
I continued on this Highway of Tomorrow but the cheering and
shouting of il huge crowd once again turned my steps aside. A crowd
had gathered to see a football game. Roger Crandall had again saved the
day by an 8 5-yard run.
My dream informed me that you will be a successful secretary.
I found myself a Laboratory Technician. Well, it was a nice dream
anyway. Let's hope that all of the Class of y4S may someday live on the
Road of Success.

A CRAZY MIXfUP
THE footlights were turned on, the room lights were dimmed, and the
curtains opened on the dramatic production of the year. "The Crazy
Mix-up" kept the appreciative audience in a crazy mix-up attempting to
trace the plot and the story. What with Lee julian fjoan Senskej ap-
pearing Hrst as an eccentric man and then as the man's charming wife,
the representative of the Good Will Society, Philip Holden Qlloger Cran-
dallj, has a dillicult time awarding the prize. Crystal QDaphine Con-
norj and Paula fl-Ielen Wozowiczj lend exciting and tall tales in their
roles as roommates of Lee. The masculine counterparts of these girls are
found in the dashing Spanish Don Carlos Sebastian CRoland Dolej and
the persevering Russian Clsester Weversj. The sophisticated interior
decorator Natalie Lane CBarbara Sanfordj proves to be a worthy mate
for the eminent young violinist Emil Stamm CAlec Perkinsj. The irate
landlady, Mrs. Macready fMarilyn Munsonj resenting the impulses of
the girls, fails in her threat to evict her roomers. Lee's mother, Alicia'
CGeneva Turnerj personifying dignity and pride, heaps coals of fun up-
on the already hopelessly tangled crazy mix-up.
ln presenting this play our class again proved the old adage-small
but mighty. The success of the play on April 6, is credited only to the
spirit of the united effort of the class.

ON FRIDAY evening, May i ith, the High School Chorus presented an
operetta entitled "Green Cheese."
This operetta was very colorful showing the life of the Swiss peasants
in a small cheese town, A wealthy young man from America visited the
town. He caused considerable suspicion and excitement, but it was found
out that he was there on honorable business.

Hardingerg Johann von Bimmer - Donald Sweeney, Trini Schultz -

To Nickys dismay the radio is to be presented in person by Mr. Parks
CFloyd Hulbertj. In panic Nick conscripts the help of his friend A1
Taney CLeonard Robertsj. They try to decide how they can obtain the
radio and Hnally Nick decides to dress in Grandma's clothes and a wig and
to play deaf and dumb.

othy Denton fCarol Swanson, enter. Nick wants the radio for Dorothy.
Finally Grandma appears. She states that she wrote the Winning letter
to the Seed Co. and Dorothy tells that she received the letter which Nick
was to have sent to the Seed Co.
Grandma receives the radio and gives it to Nick. Nick in turn gives
the radio to Dorothy who is very pleased.

THE play "A Silver Lining" was presented by the Seniors under direction
of Miss Munger.
Cedric Green fliichard Wilstedj tries to buy the homestead from
old Martha Kane fGeneva Turnerj. Alice Cjoan Senskej and Henry
fMarvin Carlsonj the niece and nephew of Martha, are staying at her
place during vacation. Henry, sensing that all is not well with Mr.
Green's bargain, investigates.
Meanwhile Max Meyers QRoger Crandallj, Irene Campbell QBar-
bara Sanfordj, and Donna Dreams fDaphine Connorj arrive from the
nearby railroad which is blocked. Max is a prospector. So when Henry
returns he shows Max a piece of ore found on the farm and sends Max to
the place to see if the vein of ore is valuable.
While Max is gone Henry tries all conceivable ways to prevent Mar-
tha from selling. As Martha is about to sign, Max returns with news that
the farm is rich. Cedric Green, caught in his act becomes angry and leaves
with Miss Dreams. Martha hires Max to run her mine and Irene, who is
really Max's fiancee stays at the farm as a visitor.

The chorus planned on robes for their first appearance which was at

war, so we will receive them sometime in the future.

OUR band has enjoyed a successful year under the capable direction of
Mrs. Roraback. W'e credit our success to organization, increase in mem-
bership, and spirit of co-operation. In addition to these improvements
we have increased our repertoire to a great extent. Our Fall concert was
well attended, and plans for a Spring concert are being made. Through-
out the year our band has played for several assembly programs. In
preparation for Memorial Day, we are drilling on our outdoor marching
and playing. we expect to add more members in the near future.

PROSPECTS for a winning baseball team are not too bright this season
due to the loss of both pitchers and the third baseman through graduation.
Also missing from last year's squad are Sam Steves and Rogers Harkness,
both of Whom are now in the service of our country. Roy Hamilton and
Alfred Poole, former players, have left school.
The team is now beginning to take shape with Roger Crandall, vet-
eran of three years behind the plate, Wayne Senske, converted outfielder
playing thirdg Harold johnson, another outfielder of last year, playing
shortstop, Howard McNitt is making his first regular debut at second,
and Dick Hardinger, regular second baseman of last year, at first base.
Harold "Red" Chapman has the regular pitching duties well under con-
trol, with Dick Hardinger, Lester Wevers and Harold Davis ready for
second call. In the outfield, Roland Dole, Art Usborne, and John Sim-
mons look promising, but theylre meeting stiff opposition from John Hes-
link, Don Dole, David Lindberg and Bill Cochran. Schedule: Lakewood,
Frewsburg, Celoron, and Falconer.
BASKETBALL started out like football, the boys winning the opener,
but although it was a long time before they were to taste victory again,
they did it in a brilliant manner. They toppled Lakewood into a tie for
first place with Clymer, thus setting the stage for the game which ended
with Clymer as "Champions of the Leaguef, Gf fourteen games played the
boys won only three, but the feat of beating Lakewood, rivals for the past
four years, gave the team a feeling of a victorious season.
The team members were, for the most part, boys who had played on
the successful second string in 1944. The newcomers from the second
string were: Roy Hamilton, Donald Sweeney, Richard Hardinger, Fred
Eggleston, Wayiie Senske, and Harold Davis. Only Roger Crandall and
Bryan Nagel were holdovers from the IQ43-1944 varsity.

THE Panama Central second team won six of twelve games played.
Although a few of the scores were decidedly in the opponents' favor the
team lacked the height necessary to compete successfully. There were
two games which were outstanding. Gne was the overtime victory over
Clymerg the other was our victory over Celoron, which was accomplished
by a late fourth quarter rally.

HARMONY COMMUNITY FAIR
THE Harmony Community Fair was held on September IS and 16 at
the Panama Central School. It was another successful undertaking. It
was made evident that with the proper program such a Fair would not
only grow but would become a permanent affair for the community.
Many people had looked forward for the date and were not disappointed
when it came.
The Watts Flats and Panama 4-H Clubs exhibited nice displays with
the Panama group receiving First Award. There were just two Granges
that exhibited, Panama and Watts Flats. Panama received the Hrst award.
It is hoped that another year will see the Niobe Grange and possibly the
juvenile Granges exhibiting as well. The plans for next year call for the
awarding of a premium to each organization bringing an exhibit.
The Baby Contest, under the direction of Mrs. Chapman, had but
18 babies entered this year, probably because of the Polio scare. These
babies were judged according to a scale of 100 points. Two in the birth
to two years age group had enough points to qualify as excellent babies:
Robert Ross, and Kathleen LeR0yg two were adjudged good babies, Wayne
Morse and Nancy Sager. There were no babies that qualified in the two
to four age group. In the four to six age group one little lady had enough
points to be adjudged good, Margaret Kvashay.
One of the main events for Saturday afternoon was the horse-pulling
Contest. There were four teams in the light weight class and one in the
heavy weight class. Martin Berg of Conewango Valley had a dappled
roan team weighing 3140. His team won the S550 war bond. The sec-
ond team was that of Mr. McComb of Sherman. His team weighed 3140.
His team had pulled the 6lOO pound load just two feet, seven inches.
This same load had been pulled tl1e required distance by Mr. Berg's team
Mr. McComb received a S25 war bond. Verne Yeager's team
weighed 3080 and came in third. The B. Cornish team weighing
3150, came in fourth. As there was but one heavy team, it demon-
strated its strength and received the S50 war bond and the second place
prize money was divided between the third and fourth place teams in the
light weight class. The heavy weight team belonged to jacob Lilly and
weighed 3600 and pulled a load of 7100 pounds.
One event that drew quite a bit of attention was the battle between
the Ashville and Panama Fire Companies. Some fellows were quite wet
and had not even entered the contest. They were all good sports and the
contest was decided a draw.
During the Fair a group of teachers were bond salesmen and did
quite well at it. Stamps and Bonds were sold to the amount of 55.142,
purchase value. The prizes for tl1e various exhibits were given in bonds
Alfred Poole succeeded in getting his arms around the greased pig
well enough to hold it, but still he did not take home the bacon, he sold
it almost on the spot.
Looking forward to another year I would like to give some other
indications of what to expect. A booklet will be printed with the require-
ments for exhibits and the premium to be paid for each. Anyone
will be allowed to make an exhibit with an understanding that all will
receive equal advantage in premiums. Heretofore the youth have been
the only ones that have received any premiums for their exhibits.
The committee has tried to arrange for additional concessions to be
on the fair-way but little has been found to date. The prize for having
the most first prizes for both boys and girls will be repeated. This will
add much interest and will have a tendency to make the exhibits of a
May we all endeavor to make the community as a whole more solidly
behind the Fair and may it bring out the best in the community. The
more we get to working as a unit, even in competition, the greater will
be our appreciation of each other. 3000 people attended and many ex-
pressed their desire for the Fair to continue.

FUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA
THERE were twenty-six members to Carry out the activities of the
F.F.A. The activities are drastically curtailed because of the war. There
was no State Fair, Chautauqua County Fair or Farm and Home Wfeek
However Hve F.F.A. members accompanied Mr. Morse to Cornell
early last fall. Thus Roland Dole, Arthur Osborne, Don Sweeney, john
Simmons and Roger Harkness had an opportunity to visit the great uni-
versity. This trip passed through some of the best farming region of the
State and a few of the farms were visited.
The F.F.A., 4H and other organizations again participated in the
Harmony Community Fair. The F.F.A. placed third in the county
achievement contest at Lakewood. Roland Dole was appointed to set up
an outline to be followed by all F.F.A. chapters in, the state organizing
local chapter activity program.
Richard Crosby's application for N. Y. Empire Farmers Degree was
favorably received, but may be deferred for a year. This is the highest

FROM THE ROCK PILIQ
"How come youlre in Jail, Sam?"
"Jes for throwin' rocks Ollta de neighbor's yard into mine."
"What's wrong with that?"
'KDese was Plymouth Rocks."
BLESS HIS HEART
In a railroad station, a soldier thought to have some fun
with a Salvation Army lassie on duty there. He asked her to
pray for him.
To his profound surprise, she placed a hand on his head and
in a voice plainly heard by his comrades said, "O, Lord, make
this young man's heart as soft as his head."

A mun'l a fool to go around with his pants
pocket burning with extra folding money
when he ought to buy an extra Bond, be-
cause that loose lettuce is the stuff inflation
is made of. When that extra dough goes
hunting for civilian goods lthat are as hard
to find as Crosby in a tuxedolj, it tends to
push up prices. Besides, it doesn't make
sense when twelve million kids are lighting
our battle for any of us to hike up the cost
of living by buying anything we can live
