Text from Pages 1 - 60 of the 1941 volume:

This Annual is dedicated to A. J. Goubert in tribute to, and appreciation of his unselfish devotion to the ed- ucational interests of this community for over forty years. Long before nCentra1ization', and for many years, A. J. Goubert served as trustee of Valley Mills School Dis- trict. An early advocate of contracting, consolidation, and transportation for school children, he became a staunch supporter of the NCentralization Lawu, and helped promote the Stockbridge Valley Centralizetion in 1927. He was elec- ted to the Central Rural School Board in that year, serving continuously since that time, during the past five years as President. His interest in education has been motivated by his optimism, and belief in young people. He has been, and is a true friend of youth, of teachers, and of his community. BOARD OF EDUCATION STOCKBRIDGE VALLEY C. R. SCHOOLS HUNNSVIIJE, N. Y. A. J. Goubert, Pres. Arthur Trew Dr. S. B. Grant Fred Scott Ernest Foster PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION Another year of P. T. A. activity has been concluded in Stockbridge Valley. During the year different types of pro- grams have been sponsored by this group. Among them inter- esting talks have been given by D, Anna Gronlund of Marcy State Hospital and Prof. Harold Ihitnall of Colgate University: the demonstrations by the Homemaklng and Music Departments of our own High School were very favorable received. As a health project, two toxoid clinics were held during last summer. These were highly successful owing to the fact that seventy-five children were innoculated. The various committees have carried on their work as planned, and they have enjoyed splendid cooperation from everyone. Let us look forward to a pleasant and helpful year with our new officers for 1941-42: President - Mrs. R. Y.

GREETINGS TO THE ALUMNI I presume former presidents of our Association, in the midst of their own work plus Spring Alumni Activities, have been tempted to find some haven of escape where no social responsibilities exist. Fortunes of war and the Selective Service Program have provided me such a spot in the lowlands of New Jersey. Here at Fort Dix, civilian activities are only a pleasant memory as Army Trainees concentrate on the fundamentals required in the School of a Soldier. Social and fraternal life is replaced by intensive military training. The hours are long and the work is hard, yet the graduates of this school will some day emerge as healthy and well-diciplined citizens. The initial training period for Selectees lasted 13 weeks. le are new in the second phase of our training--learning combat tactics by practice maneuvers in this section of New Jersey. Later in the summer, we will apply these tactics during extended war games in Virginia. From reliable informants, I hear that Stockbridge Valley is sending out a fine senior class. May they always be as happy as they are today. To the officers and members of the Association this Soldier sends his most sincere wishes for continued success. Edmund D. Clark Co.

He seemed to believe that, since he as V1ceqPres1- dent last year assumed there responsibilities, it was only the working of the Law of Compensation when Urs. Platten was forced to "take over' this year. The Reunion this 1921 and 1931. Hrs. Edwin Hickox fdlta Edwardsi Hrs. Melvin Knapp Ckuby Gardiner!

Scout Executive Forks at Savage Arms Recently Mrs. Virginia Platten placed two interesting documents in the Alumni file, One is the WDecennlal Announcement of the Munnsville Union School 1904-l9O5,W The faculty consisted of: E. A. Fuller, prin- cipal: A. E. Post, assistant: Joe L, Brooks, Junior Department: Isabelle V. Gladstone, Primary Department. The other is the 1905-1906 'Announce- ment' and contains a picture of the school drum corps. The new addition being built to the high school will relieve a rather uCramped' situation and make possible some desirable curriculum and sched- ule adjustments. Because ef the sound financial condition of the district and the help of the National Youth Administration this addition will not cause a rise in the tax rate. In the 1904-1905 Announcement referred to above, appears the name of A, J. Goubert as trustee of school district ll2, contracting with Munnsvllle Union School. During the past school year our district had instruction and trans- portation relations with the following surrounding school districts: East Hill +5, East Hill 49, Siloam, Merrlllsvllle, Lennox Furnace, Clement, Bortle Hill, and Pratts Hollow. Children from several other districts also attended school here. Our Faculty for the next year remains the same as this year. The Annual this year is the result of the cooperative effort of many people, There was no editorial staff. Miss Lillian Harriman and Walter Ferszt deserve special mention. Mrs. Platten, Stowell Pettit, Adelaide Church, Mary Davis, Mary Carlon, Douglas Greenfield, Dayton Smith, Leora Haslauer, Ethel Dick, Lyle Boylan, and June Mason have contributed their aid. 'The gentleman pictured with Mr. Zeller above is Mr. Charles Mann, Field Engineer N.Y.A., Construction Superintendent of Farm Shops. Mr. Mann is already a familiar figure around Stockbridge Valley High School, and we expect to see him quite frequently during the construction of the new farm shop. It is too bad girls that such a gen1aL handsome energetic, gentleman is married. A. G. Z. ix WQTADYSUQ g W 'L o o 0 0 e o 0 Q Q 0 0 0 Hqi C009 No Yo George Edward Ielson KSergeantJ . . . . . . Co.

It took me back to m childhood When life was one grand merry-go-round And we were so unafraid. I thought of the wonderful teachers Who were ever in their places. Of children who have long since gone Their sweet familiar faces Will linger in m memory When my sight has long grown dim. And many of my school mates Have heard the call of him, 'ho closes the gates behind us To never more return. He has guided our every effort As we tried so hard to learn. nThis is not the end,' the little brook said 'But the very beginning of life, For you, my children are on your own To face all struggle and strife. Just be prepared to meet it: Face it squarely if you can And don't forget the importance Of being a friend to man. Choose wisely and struggle on Play not the minor role, Never content with the task you've done Until you have reached your goal. The little brook's voice grew fainter And farther away. So I tell the Class of '41 What the little brook said that day. Adelaide History Class 1941 September 1937 found the class of 1941 beginning its high school course at S.V.H.S. Miss Tarolli served as advisor for the 36 members composing the class. At the beginning of the term, Hildred Jacquay and Carolyn Holt joined the class. During the year, Evelyn Colclough, Lois Tanner, Dorothy Davenport, Doris Eddy, and Ruth Kelson discontinued their work at S.V.H.S. Hildred Jacquay brought great honor to the Freshman class by winning first place in the local prize speaking contest and second in the county. Our Sophomore year found 35 members enrolled under the leadership of Miss Rank. Betty DeKing, Glenna Wilson, Eleanor Harrington, and Katherine Burleson were the new students enrolled in our class. Harry Grow, Carolyn Holt, Helen Skellham, Katherine Burleson, and Hildred Jacquay left during the year. Twenty-three members returned in September 1939 to continue their pursuit of higher learning. Miss Rank guided the class during this year's work. The class elected the fol- lowing members as officers: President, Halter Splaing Vice-President, Ethel Dick, Sec- retary, Helen Rainey Treasurer, Jane Carlon. On May 16, 1941 the Junior Prom was held which provided the highlight of the social events of the Junior Year. Nineteen members of the original 36 began their last year at S.V.H.S. in September 1941. Miss Marshall was placed in charge of the group. The class elected the following officers for the years President, Lyle Boylang Vice-President, Adelaide Church, Secretary, Walter Splaing Sec-Treasurer, Mary Davis. In January, Joe Carlon, Art Perkins, Glenna Wilson, and Carlton Hickox joined the class. During the year two successful plays, 'Meet the Folks' and 'Sc Help Me Hannah' were pro- dllcedo Hay 23, 1941 the Senior Ball was held in the school gymnasuim. The class as a whole wishes to thank the three teachers who served as class advisors and all those who aided the class through its four year course. Class Prophecy Ringed about by the hills of Stockbridge Valley lies the thriving metroplis of Munnsville This city, in the year of our Lord 1961, is the most important center of business in all of Central New York. It has progressed far since the early days of Stockbridge Valley High School. Two trains fast approached the city, one from the East, the other from the West. As the trains eased into the decorated station, bands began to play and crowds cheered. Alighting from my train, I smiled at the cheering throngs. Then, turning I surveyed the other train. Out of it stepped a well-dressed man, smiling from ear to ear. It was none other than my political rival, the Republican candidate for the Presidency, Gore Hamrick. Shaking hands and smiling for the newsreel men, we turned toward the vast crowd. There we were agreeably surprised by meeting Mrs. Timothy Murphy and Mrs. Stowell Pettit. These, of course, were our old classmates Eleanor Harrington and Adelaide Church. Eleanor is the social leader of the town while Adelaide's husband, Stowell Pettit, is prin- cipal of the Morrisville State School of Agriculture. Feeling in need of a shave, Gore and I entered the imposing barbershop. Who should we find but our old friend, Carlton Hickox. This he said had long been a hidden ambition, and he finally gratified it. Here we received the inside information on everyone in town. I5 Then came the most trying of all trials for politicians, the afternoon tea. But here w were most agreeably surprised. The tea was held in the home of Mrs. George Bashar, wife o the foreman of the W.P.A. project. Friends will recognize this young matron as Jane Carl George's flame of old. There also we met four old friends, Leora Haslauer, now Mrs. Bradley Shea, wife of the head librarian of the Stockbridge Library, June Mason, Mrs.'lilliam Bowman, wife of Gene eral Bowman, Chief of Staff, United States Armyg Corable Snyder, new Mrs. Raymond Bavener famous airplane designer, and Helen Maine, glamour girl who is 'Miss Munnsville.' Leaving there, we hurried to the Stockbridge Valley High School, to look over our old stamping ground. Imagine our surprise when we found Miss Herriman as principal, with a considerably sobered outlook on life. Hers also we found two old classmates who had suc- ceeded in becoming teachers. These are Paul Ihipple and Glenna'lllson whom we caught making sheep eyes at each other. le wish them the best of luck. we entered a board meeting that was going on at the school often wanting to have done s while we were in school. Here we met Merton Thurston who is now Justice of the Peace. Bert tells us that he never married because he married so many other people he oouldn't get up nerve to get married himself. Here also we met Lyle Boylan and Nathan Mosher. lyl is Co missioner of Street Sweeping in the City of Sherrill and Nathan is President of the New York Yankees Farm System. As we remember Nate always was a good farmer. In additi n to these old classmates, we met our home-room teacher of old, Miss Marshall. Asking her why she stayed in school so long, Miss Marshall answered that it was her duty to stay and instruct wayward seniors. On our way back to our hotel, we noticed a large group surrounding a man giving a speec on a soapbox. The scene brought back memories of our own early political careers. As we pressed closer, we recognized the speaker as none other than Roy Glave who was running for Mayor, on the Independent ticket. As we recalled Roy never could make up his mind what party he favored. Running on the same ticket with Roy was Merle Chafee, another old class mate who was striving to become City Clerk. With these two in office, we felt the city would be sure to benefit. That evening we went to a dance given in our honor. The host was none other than Arthu Perkins, former classmate. Art is now propietor of the largest dancehall in New York Stai and also gives dancing lessons on the side. When the spotlight was turned on, we recognized the featured vocalist as Ethel Dick, former classmate, now singing with Mil Maok's Orchestra. In this case we believe Ethel in combining business with pleasure. With Ethel was Joe Carlon, who tells us that he is now being paid for making noises for Walt Disney's Super Studios. As a Senior, Joe made noises for amusement only. In the wee hours of the morning, tired but happy, Gore and I taxied to the giant Strat: liner, we beheld Mary Carlon as the stewardess. As a Senior we always believed Mary's disposition and character would take her to great heights. Winging our way toward Washington, Gore and I settled down in our berths and reflected on the day's happenings. After sincere reflection, we realized that we, as politicians, had progressed least since graduation in 1941. So to bed! Walter Splain Gore Hamrick L A S T W I L L A N D T E S T A H E N T le the Senior Class of 1941 being of sane mind well stored with knowledge, do hereby bring before you this legal document, drawn up and duly signed by the members of said class, as being their last will and testament.

THE HILL VALIEY GIRLOS 4-H CLUB In 1929 the Gir1's 4-H Club was combined with the Snappy Boy's Club. In 1932 they reorganized into separate groups. The girls chose their present name and are now working under the leadership of Miss Marshall and her assistants Miss Chaffee and Jane Carlon. In 1932 there were 13 members but now the club has 45 members. The club has had a most enjoyable year. The projects studied were Cakes and Cookies, Tools and Fabrics, Successful Dresses, Under Garments and The 4-H Girl and Her Appearance. At the County Demonstration Day held at Morrisville, April 19, Elizabeth Marshall and Ada May Marshall received blue ribbons for their demonstrations. At the inter-county demonstration contest Elizabeth Marshall received blue ribbon for her demonstration of 'Making a Cherry Pie."

On May 5, we played for the Parent-Teacher Meeting in the School auditorium. It was more thoroughly enjoyed this year because of the new uniforms and the enlargement of the band. ORCHESTRA Our Orchestra is small this y8ar but it is progressing with its few members. The Orchestra consists of the following: French Horn: Joanna Marshall: Trombone: Eunice Hickox: Flute: June Mason: Oboe: Mary Davis: Clarinets: Adelaide Church, Ethel Dick, Leonard Hull: Violin: Clinton Thurston: Trumpets: Carlton Hickox, David Williams: Piano: Gene Griffin.

GIRLS CHORUS This organization began in October, under the direction of Mr. Ferszt. At that time the chorus consisted of 50 members. Although several have moved or otherwise left, new girls have joined, keeping the number at 50. With Joanna Marshall as accompianist, melodious songs are sung in two parts. However, three part harmony is the aim of the chorus. Its public appear- ance was at the Parent-Teacher Meeting on May 5. by ,aiu E 5 4 " Vw... ,, 'N 'xf' Cv--Q -f. if A Xf T A -"" xg I N irmsn, 'Le BASKETBALL Stockbridge Valley High School had a very successful basketball season this year placing third in the Madison-Oneida League.

The J.V. players are: Maurice Richmond, Bob Bikowski, Richard Greenfield, Joseph Splain, Frank Renwick, Alvin Miller, Charles Splain, Charles Brockway, Ernest Lewis, Harold Thurston, Nathan Mosher. These players show great promise for the future. We are very lucky in that the Varsity is losing only two players, Tim Murphy and Philip Truman, while Nathan Mosher is lost to the Junior Varsity through graduation. - BASEBALL The baseball season opened for S.V.H.S. with about 18 students for the first practice.

The first league game with Chittenango was postponed because of rain. Stockbridge defeated Madison 8 to 3 in the first league game played. The madison League for S.V.H.S. plays: ay 9, Chittenango at Stockbridge fpostponed.Q May 13, Madison at Stockbridgeg May 19, Stockbridge at Chittenangog May 23, Stockbridge at Madison.

We expect to play Sherrill High School, Madison High, Georgetown High, Canastota High and Remsen High. In spite of the fact that we were defeated in the first game the team looks good and we expect to have a food season. 39 GIRL SCCUTS The Girl Scout Troop No. 20 was organized in October, 1938. Irma Longbotham was Captain and Mary Shepard was Lieutenant. The troop consisted of 24 scouts, and the girls worked hard to finish their work and move to the next class. In June 1940, Troop No. 20 split into two troops. A11 the girls over 14 became Senior scouts forming Troop No. 30. Irma Longbotham became Captain of both these groups and Betty Brockway, Lieutenant. Troop No. 20 has carried on with the younger girls. A11 the year the girls in Troop 20 and 30 have worked hard to advance into higher classes. There are now 27 in the two groups,-- 10 in Troop No. 20, and 17 in Troop No, 30. Ten are First Class Scouts, 13 Second Class, and 4 Tenderfoot. Three of the 10 in the First Class Scouts have the highest award in Scouting--the Curved Bar. The girls in both troops have been working on scarfs for the Red Cross. Plans for the coming year have not yet been made. BOY SCOUTS The Boy Scouts. Troop No. 7 received its Charter in 1914 and organ- ized with Sam Pinder as Scoutmaster. There were only 6 boys in the troop at that time, but it increased rapidly in size. In 1923 Harry Drake became Scoutmaster and remained until 1925, when Mr, Zeller took his place and kept it for 7 years. The troop had greatly increased in size by this time and in 1932 when Howard Reynolds became Scoutmaster there were 35 scouts. During the next 7 years two new patrols were formed, so that in 1959 there were four patrols. Robert Hollenbeck became Scoutmaster in 1939 when Howard Reynolds resigned. In June 1940, Robert Hollenbeck entered professional scouting service and moved to Uniontown, Pa, He is Assistant Scout Executive in a large scouting Council and has charge of one of the scouting districts which contains 51 troops. This district is larger than the whole Madison County Council, The troop was left without a Scoutmaster and Howard Reynolds is now Acting-Scoutmaster until a new one is chosen. There are 16 acting scouts in the troop at present: l Eagle Scout, 1 First-Class Scout, ll Second-Class Scouts. and 3 Tenderfoot. Darwin Jones is the Assistant Scoutmaster, Walter Splain and Harold Eastman are Junior Assistant Scoutmasters and Joseph Splain is the Scribe.

Eleven editions were published in that year. The paper was sold at five cents a copy and had a fair circu- lation. It was published on a mimeograph purchased by the Board of Education. This first Staff made some observations which they re- ported. Their experience was appreciated and their advice fol- lowed. The Staff of the Valley Breeze has been enlarged so as not to put the whole burden on the shoulders of a few. We have exchanged papers with other schools and gotten ideas from them, 4 We have published seven issues of the paper this year and have deem quite successful. We hop that with a little cooperation from the Student Body we may have many more suc- 'fstul vear.
