BOARD OF EDUCATION STOCKBRIDGE VALLEY C. R. SCHOOLS
MUNNSVILLE, N. Y.
r A. J. Goubert, Pres.
Dru so Be Grant
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

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.

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

nonths getting ready for the New York State Fair. Our chapter had the honor and pleasure of
to work cooperatively with the Elbridge,znd Fabius F. F. A. Chapters, to put
Jn the educational exhibit in the Boys' and Girls' Building at the State Fair Grounds. We
received thirty-five dollars prize money for our efforts.
Billie English, Kenneth Seamon, Bernard Snell and Harry Westcott went to the Annual
Livestock Judging Contest at Delhi, August lst and 2nd, conducted by the Delhi New York State
School of Agriculture. The group left Munnsville, July 3lst. On our trip to Delhi, we

HILL VALLEY GIRLS' 4-H CLUB
The H111 Valley Girls' 4-H Club has held eleven meetings during the year of
1941 and 1942. 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.
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.
The members of the club were very active during the fall.
Many prizes were won at the 4-H Round-Up, Morrisville, New York
State Fair, Brookfield Fair and at the F.F.A. and 4-H Round-Up
at Stockbridge Valley High School.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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
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.
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. We feel sure that the young
msn of the area who have participated in the courses given, will be better
qualified to serve agriculture as it becomes increasingly mechanized.
Approximately fifteen young men will receive certificates for satisfactorily
completing both courses. hz
