BOARD OF EDUCATION STOCKBRIDGE VALLEY C. R. SCHOOLS MUNNSVILLE, N. Y. r A. J. Goubert, Pres. Arthur Trew Dru so Be Grant Fred Scott Ernest Foster Because of the defense needs of our Country, the schools will find it impossible to purchase materials for expanding facilities unless there is a most desperate need. Schools do have a priority rating which enables them to make replacements if available. The Board feels that we were very fortup nate in getting the much needed extension of facil- ities at the High School by the building of the Ag- riculture shop and two classrooms which were started last June and completed in November. Such a project could not be started now. In fact, some difficulties were encountered in obtaining materials at that time. final financing on the new addition will be completed before the end of the school year. The funds came from the following sources: N.!.A. Federal Government: Local current school balance on hand: Appropriations of current funds in last year's and in this year's school budget: balance of bond money on hand: and authorization to raise up to 86,000 in bonds. It appears now that considerable less than that will have to be raised, and next years tax rate will remain the same as it is at present. Yours very truly, A. J. Goubert 9 TOP ROW LEFT TO RIGHT--Doris Alberding, William Bennett, Marguerite Butler, Dorothy Denman, Hazel llphick.

H-one-Ice ' SENIOR CLASS HISTORY The school term beginning in September, 1938, saw the advent of this class into high school. By the middle of our Freshmen year, there were 22 boys and 18 girls in our class. Marjorie Endries Joined our class in January. She won the first prize in the local girls' prize-speaking contest, and second prize in the county contest that spring. Burel Love received the citizenship key for the year of 1938-39. It was great to come back to school as Sophomores in the fall of 1939. There were 16 boys, and 17 girls, at the beginning of the term. Pearl Filson left our throng but a new member, Shirley Carpenter, took her place. In January, 1940, Patricia Jones, Shirley Herring, lloyd Relyea and Charles White joined us from the Freshman room. Burel Love was elected president of the class, Mary Schlick, vice-president, and Robert lyser, secretary- treasurer. Bradley Shea was awarded the citizenship key that June. We entered S. V. H. S. the next fall as Juniors. There were 17 boys and 14 girls in our class including 4 'sub-Seniorsn, Joseph Carlon, Carlton Eickox, Arthur Perkins and Glenna lilson who joined their own group in January. The class officers were: Bradley Shea, President: Dorothy Iilkinson, Vicefpresident: Marjorie Endries, secretary, and Burel Love, treasurer. The Junior Prom was held on May 9, 1941. It wasia very gala occasion and very successful! In June these honors were awarded our class members: Marjorie Endrd won the alumni prizes for Latin and Mathematics: Bradley Shea the athletic key, and Clint: Thurston received the citizenship key award, the third successive boy from our class to be so honored. Mary Walters came from Canastota early in our Senior year, bringing our total enroll- ment to 28, which incidentally is the largest Senior Class ever to attend 8. V. H. S. In the fall, we sponsored a magazine drive which gained us a profit of 3100. This helped toward the purchase of class rings. A Hallowe'en Dance and a Christmas Dance were a part of our Senior activities. On Iebruary 4th and 5th of 1942, the class presented a play entitled 'Mystery At M1dnight'. The Seniors co-operated with the Juniors in putting on a formal Spring Dance, May 1, 1942. Our Senior class elected the following officers: Burei Love, president: Marjorie lndriee, Vice-president: George Basher, secretary-treasurer and Marjorie English, Corresponding-secretary. Miss Venable has been our faculty advisor for 4 years. le owe a great deal of gratitude to her for her continued thoughtfulness in sch affairs. Our Class Day exercises were held friday afternoon, June 19th. The Baccalaurea service was Sunday night, June 20th and Commencement, Monday night, June 2lst. Thus endm The High School Days of the Class of 1942. 14 JUNIOR CLASS HOLL Top Rowfleft to right, Middle Row Bottom Row Virginia Aldrich Billie English Lorenzo llarshall Cora Briest Gene Griffin Alvin Hiller Leman Clark Patricia Jones Carol Orcutt Jane Gross Dorothy Iyser Richard Relyea Phyllis Cunningham Robert Iyser Kenneth Seamon Janet DeWolfe Ada Hay Marshall Halter Yell ' Posw GRADUATES Jane Carlon Eleanor Harrington Glenna Wilson I5 SOPHOMORE CLASS ROLL mop new Cleft to right?

We were all pleased to be able to move into one of the best farm shops in the State. We wish to express our gratitude and appreciation to our Board of Education and our Principal, Mr. Zeller. For the which are to tory Gardens Many of third year the boys have continued to buy cooperatively, certified seed potatoes be planted and used as projects this summer.

Forty-seven members will complete their projects for the year. The youngest group of girls took 'Beginning Sewing' and made a skirt and two towels. The middle group studied 'What Foods to lat and lhy', and Wlggs for any Meal.n The oldest group of girls took 'Successful Dreseesn, which included the planning and construction of a usable outfit. The following officers were elected: president, Ada May Marshall: vice- president, Phyllis Cunningham: secretary, Cora Briest, and treasurer. Dorothy Kyser. The leaders were: Miss Marshall, Mrs. Hendrickson and Jane Garlen. They served very well as guides to their respective groups. During this year we have enjoyed several social activities: a Halloween Party, a Christmas party and a Picnic. le also had some practical demonstrations in First Aid by the County Nurse. A turkey dinner was served by us to the Scout Executives, to raise money for prizes for the County Round-Up. This is the tenth successful year for this Club and one hundred per cent of the members have completed their projects in the past seven years. This is a record to be proud of in any club, in addition to this fact, it is the largest Club in New York State. 24 BOYS' 4-H CLUB The activities of the Boys' 4-H Club were carried out under the leadership of Frederick Trew, president: Richard Bartlett, vice-president: Frederick Marshall, secretary: Roland Urben, treasurer and Rober Xyser, reporter.

Regular meetings have been held twice a month during the school year. Instruction has been given in dairying, poultry and gardening. le were privileged to have Professor Bltsford, poultry specialist: Professor Harold Wilman, dairy specialist and Professor Arthur J. Pratt, garden specialist, meet with us at three of our meetings. le have lOO5 enrollment for Victory Gardens. 25 BAND Our band though small has. we believe, caught the spark and understanding of playing instruments as a group. We lack many players such as clarinets, flute, oboe and trumpets. The latter depends on the number of clarinets in a band. For the third year. our music organizations are preparing to attend the Madison-Oneida League Festival. Members of the Band Are: Trumpets: David Williams, Itola Brockway, Beverly Dungey, Ella Foster. Clarinets: Granton Jewett, Gene Thurston, Roy Roher, Dawn Tuttle, Evelyn White. Saxophone: Dayton Smith. Sousaphone: Joseph Splain. Baritone: Claude Roher. Trombone Shirley Carpenter, Harold Thurston. French Horn: Joanna Marshall. Drums: Richard Greenfield, Robert Shaver. As a sideline, so to speak. a brass quartet was organized. In such a group, the players must be more proficient as well as independent, to achieve unity and a musicianly result. They cannot wait for help from their neighbor, but they them- selves must execute their parts. The members of this group are: lst Cornet: David Williams, 2nd Trumpet: Ella Foster. French Horn: Joanna Marshall, Trombone: Shirley Carpenter. ORCHESTRA The marjority of the Orchestra members are new this year, but we are slowly progressing. The orchestra consists of: Trumpets: David Williams, Etola Brockway, Beverly Dungey. Clarinetsz Gene Thurston. Roy Roher. Bass: Joseph Splain. Violins: Clinton Thurston, Alma Foster, Harold Richmond. Trombone: Harold Thurston. Cello: Calvin Mosher. French' Horn: Joanna Marshall. Drums: Richard Greenfield. The orchestra. also participated in the Parent-Teachers' Meeting and Music Festival. GIRLS' CHORUS Having difficulty in finding time for all the girls' interested in choral work to assemble, we have had a small girls' chorus this year. We are twenty strong and sing songs in two parts. oi-'ff 27 BASKETBALL - 1942 Stockbridge Valley High School enjoyed another successful basketball seasoz placing third in the Madison-Oneida League.

Last September they won first prize of fifteen dollars at Brookfield Fair for the best exhibit. which was Astronomy. le thank Mr. Braendle for his valuable help. Troop 30 has twenty members, the active ones have advanced in their badge work, so that quite a few will receive the 'Curved Bar' award this year. Irma Longbotham has been the Captain of the two troops since 1938. The last two years she has been assisted by Lieutenants Betty and Rose Mary Brockway. '60 BOY SOGUTS The regular weekly meetings of Troop 00 were discontinued in March due to lack of sufficient adult leadership. Our Scout- master, Stowell Pettit, is now in the armed forces and is stationed at Fort Eustis, Virginia. Idward Splain, assistant scoutmaster has enlisted in the Marines. Nevertheless, the troop is still active and is taking part in the National Defense Program by collecting paper and scrap metal. Last summer several pounds of aluminum were collected during the drive. ' Several of the boys are planning to go to Scout Camp at laton Brooke this summer. Jacque Frost, Charles Meakin and Ivan loonen were the scouts who attended camp last summer. le hope to have a new Scoutmaster by fall so that we may resume our regular meetings again. 51 0. S. Y. DEFENSE TRAINING SCHOOL At the completion of the Farm Shop, Stockbridge Valley High School was given the opportunity to conduct an 0.S.Y. Defense Training School, in the evening for the out of school, farm youths of the area. Many of the young men of the area responded to the notices sent out, concerning the possibilities of such a school. As a result of the in- terest shown by the young men the O.S.Y. Defense School started February 9, 1942. Two ten week courses were offered. The first one being for Auto Mechanics, including the operations, care, and repair of tractors, trucks and automobiles. At the conclusion of the first course on April 19, the second course in Metal Work began, including welding, tempering, drilling, shaping and machinery repair. The periods of instructions were from 7:30 until 10:30 P.M., Monday through Friday. Mr. Fred Speer of Vernon and Mr. Hugh Griffin of lunnsville were the instructors. Additional equipment needed to carry on the courses was purchased from the 0.S.Y. funds. The principal equipment purchased was a complete set of auto and tractor mechanic tools, a blacksmiths forge. an oxyacetylene outfit and a metal lathe. During the continuation of the courses several tractors and many pieces of farm machinery have been repaired.
