"GET INTO THE GAME," HAS COME TO APPLY NOT ONLY TO A CONTEST ON THE FIELD, BUT ALSO TO THE GAME OF LIFE. THE WORD GAME SIGNIFIES THAT ONE IS IN HONOR BOUND TO OBSERVE CERTAIN RULES OF CONDUCT IF THE GAME OF BUSINESS, LEISURE, LIFE IS TO DEVELOP SATISFACTORILY . . . "I-IE IS A GOOD SPORT." "HE IS GAME." SUCH TERMS ARE USED ONLY IN ADMIRATION AND APPROVAL, BUT WHAT DO THEY REALLY MEAN? . . . MANY ARE THE SLOGANS THAT HAVE BEEN COINED IN THE ATTEMPT TO EXPRESS IN WORDS THAT INTANGIBLE SPIRIT WHICH PROMIPTS ONE UNERRINGLY TO DO AND SAY THE RIGHT THING. BUT AFTER ALL, IS NOT THE REAL TEST OF GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP THE SATISFACTION ONE FEELS, EITHER IN VICTORY OR DEFEAT, THAT THE GAME HAS BEEN PLAYED ACCORDING TO THE RULES, AND NO QUARTER ASKED OR GIVEN . . . THE CLASS OF 1934 LEAVES SCHOOL AT A TIME WHEN THE SWORLD SEEMS TO HAVE LITTLE NEED OF THOUSANDS OF NEW GRADUATES. NEW ADIUSTMENTS, NEW RULES, PERHAPS A NEW GAME MUST RESULT BEFORE THEY CAN ADAPT THEMSELVES TO THE SITUATION . . . BUT ENCOUR- AGED BY THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THE SIDE LINES ARE CHEERING, AND, ALTHOUGH THE FIGHT WILL BE HARDER, THE CHANCES ARE EQUAL FOR A HIGH SCORE, THE MEMBERS OF THE GRADU- ATING CLASS OF KIBLER HIGH SCHOOL PRESENT THIS SCORE CARD OF THE GAME THEY PLAYED IN SCHOOL, DETERMINED TO BE GOOD SPORTS, "GET INTO THE BIG GAME, AND PLAY THE GAME WITH THE NET UP." THE CLASS OF 1934 DEDICATES ITS ANNUAL TO COACH CHRIS TUSSING TO SHOW ITS APPRECIATION OF HIS NINETEEN YEARS OF TEACH- ING AND COACHING IN THIS HIGH SCHOOL . . . TO YOU, MR. TUSSING, WE ARE INDEBTED FOR THE SPIRIT YOU HAVE INSTILLED INTO OUR BOYS, AND FOR THE SUCCESS OF OUR TEAMS . . . OUR HEARTIEST CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU AND YOUR CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM! . . .MAY YOUR SUCCESS BE EVERLASTING!

K Here she has worked quietly but tirelessly,tinstilling into her pupils some of her own enthusiasm for science. For an extra-curricular activity she organized the Garden Club. lts purpose is not only to teach the elements of gardening but also to give practical experience by means of work in the conservatory. lf its success can be measured by tl '- beautiful flowers that have found their way into office, library, and sometimes ss rooms, it is an extremely profitable organization. Mrs. Driscoll has lived in the Tonawandas all her life. She was graduated from Tonawanda High School in 1896, and entered Buffalo Normal the follow- ing September. After her graduation in 1899, she was given a position in the elementary school of the city. Later she was transferred to Junior High, Where she taught arithmetic for several years. Then she entered High School and began her present lim: fist work. ln luly, 1924, Miss Booth was married to Mr. lguzes Driscoll. Soon after their marriage, they began the erection of a home on Hill Street Where they now reside. Since Mrs. Driscoll has completed her full quota of years of successful teach- ing, she will retire at the close of this session. She will be greatly missed by both pupils and faculty members, but all join in wishing ner long life and the best of health to enjoy herwell-deserved rest. 10 ,y O 1 ' .i 22 fum!

C 24 CHRONICLES OF THE CLASS OF 1934 Once upon a time, in some instances, a long time ago, the mighty monarchs of Tonawanda High School put a violent strain on their cerebral region and forded the "Rivers" issued semi-annually by the New York State Board of Education. The grandeur of the graduation that followed can be surpassed only by another of this Iune. We uentered to learn" in 1930, f29-28-271, and uleave to serve" in 1934. All these years of life, and what a life, task any of the exhausted but triumphant teachersl, we excelled in major scholastic trials, and we added new laurels to the trophy case for athletic ability. We were never dull, or without enthusiasm, or unprepared, fexcept on Book Report dayl. In short, ours has been, without question, the perfection admired but seldom attained by our past, present, or future classmates. Our standard of supremacy shall stand as an incentive to those ambitious youngsters of vivid imagination. The program of achievements began in our "cradle daze" of 1930. We autographed the "Annuals" of the then upperclassmen which, in those days, was the height of any freshrnan's sky. We soared around in the clouds for what seemed a short time, then some of us had to "bail-out." The rest glided safely into their Sophomore year. Our conquests, and the honors we heaped upon the school, are too numerous to mention, therefore, we l'Carioca'd" into the lunior Homeroom under the supervision of Mrs. Filsinger. At this rung up the ladder we picked up our old pal and able advisor on school life, "Bike," who assisted our class officers- President-loe Balough Vice President-Chuck Rech Secretary-Rosina Burnett Treasurer-Pete Zickey in the problems incurred by conducting such a brilliant, sparkling, illustrious, eminent, intelligent, tempermental, studious, competent, diligent, and renowned group of individuals. Reminiscence brings fond memories of joy and gladness. The lunior Prom, a very delightful affair, was just an inkling of what this class did with their Senior Prom. That bit of practice made perfection. Many parties and dances that gave pleasure to the other students were sponsored by our class in their lunior year. The ability to surmount obstacles, the aptitude, the acumen of our class could not be downed so, although it brought great sorrow to our faculty, we became the Kings and especially "Queens" of Kibler Kastle, fthe rest of you are but maids and knaves, have hope. We didl. After carefully choosing the most becoming head, lack Howard's, for our crown, we picked his executive counsel. In case the king should abdict his throne for lack of duty, Rich Baker was to be alternate. Anne Heuer was elected Keeper of the Records, and Eddie Smith was unemployed as Treasurer. Immediately after installing the officers, we began checking off the many and varied events that crowded each other on the Senior Calendar. Each month of the year found us busily engaged with some project for the benefit of either ourselves or the other pupils. On October 31, all the ghosts and goblins on their way to the Hal1owe'en Party scared the Magazine Sale into a grand climax. Those refreshments that so mysteriously disappeared are still missing but the case shall be taken to Scotland Yard in the very near future. November's Thanksgiving Day classic crowned us with the Western New York Championship and also placed a loving cup in the show case after an undefeated season on the gridiron. Our Senior Class was the sponsor of the dance that marked the "coming-out again" of the football fellows tno more 10 o'clock bed timel. - .lust previous to Christmas Day, our class enjoyed itself at a party where avery familiar "Sanny Claus" distributed gifts. February 14 couldn't be complete without candy for "the Valentinesf' therefore, we very kindly obliged. Ours is also the first class to hold a special candy sale for Mother's Day. The month of March saw the daughters of Tonawanda entertain their mothers at a banquet on the 19th. Later in the month, "Mrs Wiggs" blew into town and packed the auditorium when she exhibited all the "Cabbages in her Patch." . The annual Prom on April 20th surpassed all expectations. lf you believe everything you hear, each girl was the "Belle of the Ball" attended by Prince Charming, himself. During this month our Commercial students, upon entering a district contest, acquitted themselves in good fashion by bringing home five, of a possible six, honors as companions to those cups already on exhibition. As the President now has a day, so shall our class too, have a day. Iune 16, Class Day, is to be the last splurge before the final plunge into those almighty "Rivers." The exact spot of recreation is, as yet, undecided, but rest assured, we can have a "wow of a time" anywhere, anytime and any place fwe're like thatl. As the Grand Finale to our four years of high school, comes Commencement, an event of striking elegance and impressive dignity. The grand splendor of graduation is saddened by Moving-Up day when we must forever relinquish the right to march into the auditorium and sit in the seats of honorl In adieu we must say that it has been a pleasure to rule such good and faithful underclassmen as you have been, and whom we know will forever endeavor to carry onthe standards set by the Alumni of 1934.

The story vs zlraingtized by Annie Crawford Flexner from the novel by Alice Hegan Rico, a. novel which portrayed the beloved Mrs. Wiggs and her friendly people who have entered into the hearts and minds of a nation. Mrs. Wiggs encouraged all wholived in the Cabbage Patch with her kind deeds, gcod hunxgr and philosophical advice. . There are many interesting characters.

' 'TIME WILL TELL' ' Relentless Time has removed ten years from our span of life since the Class of '34 graduated from Tonawanda High School. For ten years each member of that distinguished class has been going his own way, but today we meet again to hold that reunion we arranged on our graduation day. What have these brilliant people accomplished since they have been out in the world? We shall see. Kibler High School is now a mammoth ten-story building equipped with elevators, electric fans, over-stuffed furniture and all other modern conveniences. loe Kohler and Norman Koepsel, having suffered from the defects of the old building, planned and executed the improvements. Mighty fine work, boys. This magnificent building stands in an extensive and beautiful campus which was laid out by our classmates, Karl Seigmund and Robert Marohn. Their work received so much acclaim that they were called to Washington to improve the White House grounds. Sauntering over this velvety green, among the rare shrubbery, I met many of my old friends. The first were Ben Bechtel and Bill Follett, both distinguished surgeons. tWho would have thought those two cut-ups could have gotten so fai-?j I thought they were afraid to go in for fear they would miss something, but they said they had their eye out for accidents. Business was poor, since William Steinberg had invented that fool-proof automobile. They said they did not care for themselves, but Betty Kibler, Wilma Kaegebein, Irene Schneider, and Mary Iane Armstrong were nurses in their hospital, and they hated to have them idle. Ben asked me if I had heard of the changes that have taken place in the management of the school, and when I replied in the negative, he and Bill both started talking at once. I was finally able to gather that Myron Beisiegel is the new principal. CI knew he would get far with his ambi- tionl. Mr. Mosher retired just to give Bike a chance to show his ability. Miss Haskell is the only one of the original faculty still teaching.. Can it be that she was the only one who approved of Bike's ideas? Sarah Cipriano has replaced Mrs. Dickson in the English departmentp Evelyn Vogel, Miss Major in the Latin departmentp and Sherwood McOuinn, Mr. Clukey in the Commercial. Other members of the faculty include Gordon Allen, Marion Lewis, and Annamae Robillard. Osh Bedell is now basketball coach, and is teaching the Bedell Method of Basketball. fAnd a good method it isll Charles Rech is football coach, and N. T. hasn't had a chance against the Little Red Team since Chuck took up his duties. Girls' sports are on an equal basis with the boys' now, and Mary McDowell, the coach, is turning out some mighty fine teams. As we entered the building, my attention was attracted by a fully equipped beauty parlor on the ground floor, presided over by Doris Turner, who owns a chain of beauty parlors that stretches from Buffalo to New York. Ethel Thursam and Lois Dick are two of her expert hairdressers. Bike thought it was quite a good plan to have a beauty parlor so near. It saves the girls many half-days' absence from school. Besides it relieves the congestion in study halls. A - But when Ruth Post wanted to open a Parisian Dress Shop adjoining, Bike rebelled. He thinks girls ought to have at least an hour a day left for their studies, and he knew that would be impossible with a dress shop in the building, especially with such models as Alma Ianke, Verna Dauman, and Ruth Haskins. I asked why there was not a barber shop, too: but they shushed me quickly. Bike, it seems, insists on having the Gentlemen's Agreement observed to the limit. In the hall, I met lack Howard, our class president. He told me that he had kept up his music career and is now the leader of the world-famed Musical Ambassadors in which Henry Whitefield, Howard Phillips, John Dreier, and Bert Rowe are a few of the melody makers. Rosina Burnett and Stuart Wolf lend their bit of harmony with their crooning. The United States was not a large enough field for some ofqour graduates, it seems, for lack said that Rich Baker is in China, teaching the Chinese football, while Peg Berhalter is in Africa teaching the cannibals French. ' . - In the school library I met Mr. end-Mrs. Edward Smith CD0 I have to say who the Mrs. is?J, still holding hands. Evidently they takvf marriage seriously. From them I learned that Thelma Hudson and Ruth Supple are still rivals for the title of America's Sweetheait left vacant by Our Mary when she deserted Hollywood. Iohn Albright is commercial artist for the Kalpin-Kampas Furniture Company of Buffalo. Other famous members of the clas .nciade Anne Heuer and Richard Ohstrom, champion backstroke swimmers, who, with Martin Ohstrom,, are training for the coming Olympic Games. Ralph Helbing has earned a just fame by returning to Mexico to prove to the Mexicans that they were to blame for the Mexican War QW'e wonder where he learned it.j At the latest reports he is still alive. When I met Iris Semon and Dorothy Townsend, well-known society matrons whose chief aim in life is to get one more picture in the Sunday supplement, they told me they had just returned from Paris where they left Doris Leber and Dorothy Pickard enjoying the sights. CWe wonderlj I was disappointed to learn that no one in our illustrious class had become president of the United States, but I was slightly recompensed to learn that Herbert Paris is Governor of New York, with Winnifred Grant as Secretary of State, and Leonard Kuntz as Attorney General. If you must break any laws, go outside of New York State to do it. We all remember well how we were taught, away back in 1934, that all the jobs were taken, there weren't any for usp so we should have to make jobs for ourselves. Charles Gruen, George Edwards and Merle Filsinger took the advice seriously and undertook the responsibility of making Little America into a prosperous country. They elected Eugene Shafer president, and induced Ray Morningstar to operate a chain of Shea's shows there. A few of his competent helpers are Edwin Lowitzer, Edwin Andres, and Robert Smith. Helen Warner has undertaken to teach the pelicans to 28 dance. Eddie Watkins got a brilliant idea and decided to create a demand for fans at the Pole. Sounds queer, doesn't it? Well, he filled the fans so full of holes that it took so much exertion to raise a breeze, the effort kept one warm. Clever idea! We congratulate you, Eddie. Some more of the class have created jobs for themselves. lane Bestier, lane and Anne Hackett, and Kathleen Hayes are now famous dietitions., Their menus are popular the world over. They are equally popular with a group of doctors, Frank Bellinger, Ted Iakubezak, and Richard Perry, to whom people have to go after eating these famous meals. If that isn't creating a job for yourself and your friends, too, I ask you, What is it? I ust then I met Conrad Pohl who immediately tried to sell me a bottle of his l'Absolutely Guaran- teed Indelible Ink" only five dollars a bottle. He attempted to prove it by marking a handkerchief, explaining meanwhile that nothing could remove the mark. Iust then he upset the bottle and spattered my new dress. "Now see what your old ink has done-ruined my good dress," I cried. l'Never mind, sister," he soothed. "Here comes Norman Keller with a bottle of Magic Indelible Ink Remover, absolutely guaranteed to take my ink out of the most delicate fabric without injuring it or leaving a trace. Only ten dollars a bottle. We make the bottles so they will upset easily," he added with a grin. I asked him if his conscience didn't trouble him, but he denied it. "We had to make our own jobs, so we're doing our bit." Fritz Greiner and Roland Dominski also made jobs for themselves by inventing collapsible houses with collapsible furniture that can be spread out at night, and folded up and parked in the morning. They prophesy that before long everybody will be living in that kind of houses. William Iacobs is their chief advertising agent. In one of the classrooms I saw Hubert Seaman sitting by himself with an awfully contented look on his face, and I knew without telling that he had reached the goal of his desire, a cottage small. It did not surprise me to learn that Goof Gfroerer was back in school taking a post graduate course. Goof said that someone had to use that comfortable furniture, and he didn't know anybody who could do it better than he. Charles Graf has also reached his goal, he is full-fledged agent for the Dutton Matrimonial Agency. He has had his eye on Wilbert Ianke, who is chief meterologist for the Weather Bureauy and Clinton Small, who broadcasts the Musical Clock tHow does he ever get up in time?D but he has not been able to interest either one in the fair sex. Marjorie Knoche runs a out-rate drug store. She makes her own medicines and has become a world-renowned druqgist, although some people do say she puts too much salt in her chicken salad. A feature of the reunion was an entertainment in the huge auditorium. Marion Tripodi, the great television personality, gave a reading. fEllis sat in the front seat.j Olive Pagels, U. S. Senator from N. Y., gave a humorous reading, "How I run the government." George Smith gave some sensational piano numbers which he composed himself, and Ann Sieber and Iohn McCormick, the famous comedy stars, presented their act. There followed the calling of the class roll from which I learned that Harvey Baker is Professor of Mischief at Hiram College. Edward Wisler has taken charge of the Sunshine Mission with Pauline Muranji for his assistant in that worthy work. Iohn Stack is promoter of the largest summer resort in the world on Grand Island. One of its features is a glass roofed city designed by Edmund Wolf, where people goto get their southern tan. Amelia Cramer and Anna Swisston are the official life guards on the beach. Sometimes Muriel Kflly gives demonstrations of her "space" aircraft with which she hopes in time to reach other p anets. After the assembly, we adjourned to the tennis courts to watch those world champions, Vera Heybourne and Leola Gademski, practice. On the sidelines with the girls' trainer, Dan Mulcahy, were Regina Eva and VeNorma Bruden, reporters for the Tonawanda Gazette. They told me that with so many prominent people home for the reunion, Edward Mikits, the editor, did not know what to do with all the news. I asked them to tell me what I didn't know, and they proceeded. Elvie Nelson is just home from Sweden, where she went to write a history of that country, Margaret Niland has become editor of the New York Times since she made such a' hit with her latest novel. Mildred Ross and Katrine Simson are happily married and living in Lockport. Edna Schneider is illustrator for a chain of high class magazines. Mary Tony and Amelia Todzonia are giving demonstrations of their well known cosmetics. "Yon put it on and it won't come aff," is their trademark. Ruth Bern- hardt and Violet Walker are their experts who compound the stuff to suit individual complexions. I strayed back to the campus and mt down alone to think of all I had learned. I was sure there was nothing more to learn, but just than Albert LaRusch came rushing by. I asked him what he was doing. He said that he and Mildred Schimpf had taken that advice about creating their own jobs: so they started wearing wooden shoesj Soon it became a fad, and such a demand was created that they had to build a factory and employ Dolores Norton as a designer. And he clumped merrily away on his wooden shoes, leaving me convinced that there was nothing more to be learned. Did I hear you ask what I had been doing all those years? I had been on an extended tour for which I am 'leaving tonight, to some undiscovered section of the universe where I had to remain until the general amnesty proclamation of 1944 made it safe for me to come home, unscathed by the dire threats of my insulted classmates. - LEONA ANDRES. 29 THE SENIOR CLASS WILL We, the Senior Class of 1934 of Tonawanda High School, being of sound mind and memory, and realizing that the youth and inefficiency of the underclassmen will prevent them from attaining the heights reached by their famous predeces- sors unless we, in passing, bequeath to them some timely hints, do make, publish and declare this to be our LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT Expressing our inestimable gratitude and appreciation of services rendered by our devoted teachers and pilots, we appoint these said teachers as executors of this document. WE BEQUEATH THE FGLLOWING: ITEM I To the Freshmen-the privilege of speaking when spoken top of look- ing at usp and of hoping, however ill-founded their hopes may be, that some day, perhaps six or seven years hence, they will be as tall, handsome and dignified as we are. ITEM II To the Sophomores-the privilege of sitting in study hall A. After a long conference in which we have given the matter full considera- tion, we have even decided to let them use the pencil sharpener. ITEM III To the citizens of Tonawanda, a large appropriation from the class fund to pay for any doorbells that we may have worn out in selling candy, magazines, and tickets. ITEM IV To Chris Tussing, material for another championship football team. ITEM V To Miss Major, the right to change her mind again. ITEM VI To Mabel Duff, a voice silencer, to give her friends a rest. ITEM VII To Ioe Balough, some of Ellis Leber's self assurance. ITEM VIII To Bill Dick, an extension of the halls, so that he will have farther to roam. ITEM IX To Bob Canning, a muffler for his mighty voice. ITEM X Tin David Wasson, Gordon Allen's ability to keep "every hair in p ace. A . ITEM XI To Norman Iohnson, some of lack Howard's dignity. V ITEM XII To Bob Rose and Ina Nilandp Ellis Leber and Marion Tripodi's ability to find quiet corners. ITEM XIII To Miss Bush, a modern senior play and some recruits for the or- chestra. ITEM XIV To the band, the privilege of going on to greater honors, as they have each year to this writing. , ITEM XV To the football team, the right to do as well as for better thanj last year's team. ITEM XVI To the commercial students, the right to carry off even greater honors than they did this year. So it is that we pass onward Crammed with learning, hope and cheer, Ne'er, to let our progress falter In our plans for coming years. Properly signed, sealed, and declared in my presence, I have hereunto fixed my name on this thirtieth day of April in the year one thousand nine hundred and thirty-four A.D. V RICHARD PERRY 30 . THE JUNIOR CLASS Since their confident advent as Freshmen, three, and in some cases four or five years ago, the brightest, most successful, and praiseworthy thing about the Juniors has been their future. Their promising appearance and numerous talents have kindled eager hopes in the breasts of their teachers--hope now glowing dimly among the ashes of disappointment, but nevertheless waiting to burst into flame at the merest spark of action. As Freshmen the present Junior class distin- guished itself as a body by its tremendous social inactivity. As Sophomores the class outdid itself fand every other classl in accomplishing nothing at all. Ah! But as Juniors-third-year classmen and everything-these ambitious students really made their mark in the world-Kibler High School, I mean. They did so much and accumulated so much money that I couldn't begin to describe it all, but must condense it into a few frief words:-They had a dance in February not long after their sudden organization. It was a colossal success. Why, quite a few people were there, and the Juniors made a clear profit of eighty cents fS.8Ol. How's that for a starter! And finisher! The dance was on Ash Wednesday, by the way, but this unusually wise choice of a date cannot be entirely credited to the class since all other nights were taken. Oh, but that's not all. We were going to have a Junior Prom, but Mr. Mosher doesn't want to spoil our Senior Prom next year. He wants us to have some pleasures left for our last year. This is prudent counsel. We have followed it strictly all through high school, in fact, we have such a large untouched collection of new pleasures left for our senior year that there is hardly room left for graduation. We shall probably have a Class Day, too. Maybe you'll read about it next year. Of course that's not saying that the class isn't bursting with dynamic personalities. There are enterprising and vigorous individuals in practically every seat. Football stars lie all over the place. Names of swimmers of superior ability are listed on the roll. Basketball players are numerous. You must ask them all about how to be a good loser. We have debators, actors, artists, journalists, winners of all kinds of contests-and even scholars. We have lots of band members. I am not ashamed to say it falthough Mrs. Filsinger might not like ith that the highest average in our class ranks fourth among the highest averages of the four classes. You can't be everything, In the interclass swimming meet the Juniors were second only to the Seniors. At least we are just as good as we should be in the water. Do I hear applause? . We also have night owls in the class-you know, people who wake up after the sun goes down. They use the desks in school to catch up on their rest. We are not appreciated by the Faculty. It is an actual fact that we were nearly banned from Assembly because in our exuberance of spirits and affectionate desire to be near our friends, we often picked rows far out of our normal course, and did a lot of stalling and scrambling and pushing to accai. plish our ends, which held up the gathering and exasperated its directors. Threats and pleadings fixed us up fine. We are now models. Now comes the hard part for me, mentioning names. Well, Bob Rose, l.ill Dick, Ellis Leber, and Joe Balough shone in football. In fact, it took the first mentioned to put the pigskin over the line for the winning touchdown in the Thanksgiving game. Os. Gleason is the outstanding swimmer of the class. Claud Dolp and Bob Rose are our basketball players. We are represented on the debating team by Bernard Feeney, George Ayrault, and Bob Canning. The class had many girls on the basketball teams, and the girl swimmers are Jo Arenz and Catherine Leighty. Frances Baltes and George Ayrault represented the class in the speaking contests. At least half of the Juniors are missing from the study hall during X period. Nearly everyone belongs to at least one club. We are well represented in all the extra-curricular activities in the school, and spend a good share of our time in such occupations as rehearsing plays, planning parties, pondering on money-raising schemes, and collecting dues. Well, I guess that's all I can think of right now, unless there's a volcanic spurt of action as soon as this is handed in Iwhich would be just my luckj it will contain all information up to date. So long until next year! ' Good Grief! Word has just arrived by special delivery that the Junior Class will give a dance June lst. It's to be called the Junior Hop. It will, of course, be an overwhelming success-and lust suppose I'd left that out!

My dears, it was so exciting! Of course, it was all imagination, but it was such fun. First I must tell you something of the situation. This ingenious and eccen- tric old man allowed me to tell him the topic which I wished him to tell me about, and I immediately asked him to relate to me some calculations of my senior year in high school. Here are just a few of the things he related to me. "Your senior year, my dear, will be very successful both for you and your classmates. Your class officers will be two boys and one girl. The class presi- dent will be David S.: the vice-president, Peter B.g and your secretary, Anna F. There will be keen competition among Cora B., Marjorie D., and Lillian G. for the honor of being valedictorian. Your historian will be a girl. I think her name is Alice L. The seniors will have a magazine sale. There will be two teamsg one led by Robert B. and the other by Louis H. I also see a candy sale in which all the sen- iors take part. It will be a tremendous success. You will be led to this success by an able and willing chairman, Albert C. I see an annual-a year book. The sale of this annual will far surpass that of any previous year. Apart from the regular senior play, the seniors will present a comedy. The cast of this play will be composed of sixteen members of the class. The leading lady will be Lois B5 the leading man will be Henry W. This cast will repeat the play many times, and will gain wide-spread popularity. The senior play will be a romance. I can see quite plainly that an aunt interferes greatly. The char- acters who take the leading parts will be: Gladys D., Vera P., William I., Edward L., Gertrude H., and Iack D. Cne of these people-I am not sure which-will be asked to take part in a drama to be enacted at the State Teachers' Convention of the year. I see-see-many dances in your senior year. There is an especially pretty one-I believe it is a senior hop-no-no, I have it, a senior prom. It will be lovely. Flowers-flowers will be everywhere. There will be no other decora- tions. The cost will be great, but the seniors have worked hard and really deserve it." I must stop for a minute and explain to you that all the time I was having the best time. I was sitting right on the edge of my pillow-the pillow was on the floor. Gee, it was exciting! Well, to get on with my story, the old man con- tinued: "There are many scholars in your class, my dear. At least five from your class will win scholwfships. At graduation time the class will be highly honored. A man of high regard in your state will visit you. The graduated will be the greatest number since the school was erected. There will be many more little happy incidents. I see no more. With best wishes, my dear, I bid you good-bye." ' And that was all. Was I excited? Was I thrilled? I just had to write and tell you all about it. Wouldn't it be nice if things turned out just that way? I must close now as it is time for lunch. Sincerely I EAN KINZLY 36 THE FRESHMAN CLASS ln September we entered Tonawanda High School, having graduated with due honor trom Grammar school last lune. We approached with awe and fear the new upward step in our intellectual progress, but "Now we are at home." During our Freshman year, we have realized as never before what our school with all its ideals means to us. Our class has been active in contests, clubs, sports, and, last but not least, in our studies. The Freshman high scholarship pin was won for the first three quarters by Helen Solomon. Her average for the third quarter was 96.7, higher than either the senior or junior honors. We took part in the interclass swimming meet, and although we did not come out on top, we found the training beneficial. The Frosh football team was very successful this year, winning games from its heaviest opponents. We are represented in almost every activity and club in the school, and hope to continue with them all. ln our Sophomore year, we expect even greater deeds of valor are in store for us. lt will be but a very short time before we are seniors, and then we, the Class ot 1937, hope to do as well as the Class ot l934. We sincerely congratulate the Seniors and wish them all the luck and happiness in the world. IEAN NEASMITH AS A SENIOR SEES THEM lt you see someone look troubled Not knowing where to go You can tell that it's a Freshman They're all that way, you know. Yes, they're the merry Freshmen They study day and night But though they try their darndest lt seems they're never right. lt's plain to see they're studious lt's written in their looks And every time you see them . A Their arms are full ot books. This spirit doesn't last longy ln just a year or two They get to think they're something And school's just ballyhoo. l. S. 37 X ' ts.

Football and commercial ability rank above all other achievements in honors this year. Tonawanda has produced a championship football team and now winning teams in commercial work. Five cups for team events were won out of a possible six awarded, and seven pins out of 21 for individual honors. Twelve High Schools were competing and 125 individuals, and we won the sweepstakes honors for Western New York, proving the efficiency of the corn- mercial department, which is in the spotlight for the first time in the history of our school. ' : On April 28, a chartered bus transported 20 students to Orchard Park. What a joycfis homecoming. Mr. Mosher said, "Bring'ihome the Bacon." This we did with all the trimmings. U Competition is a stimulating factor in both football and commercial contests, but both need to be backed with harc work in order to achieve success. Any- thing not worth working for is not worth having. One gets out of each enterprise that one undertakes, just what one puts into it. The importance of keeping one's profession or aims constantly in mind cannot be over emphasized. The following received individual honors: Shorthand ll, Regina Eva, lst placep Shorthand l, Lorraine Errick, 3rd place: Typewriting l, Phyllis Hetzel, lst place, Typewriting ll, Rosina Burnett, 2nd place, Arlene Perry, 3rd placeg Book- keeping l, Eugene Hamman, 3rd placeg Commercial Arithmetic, Dorothy Koep- sel, tied for 2nd place. The teams that won first place were as follows: Shorthand ll, Regina Eva, Verna Daumen, Ann Sieberp Shorthand l, Frances Baltes, Lorraine Errick, Ruby Reedp Typewriting ll, Rosina Burnett, Arlene Perry, Eugene Hammang Typewriting I, Phyllis Hetzel, Marjorie Dutton, Norma Thursamp Bookkeeping ll, Edna Kohl, Grace Webster, Ruth Oswald. Team winning second place: Com. Arithmetic, Dorothy Koepsel, Mark La- Fleur, Alice Long. The spirit of competition has enlivened the commercial department to aim high and achieve honors to inspire future classes. Here's to greater success. Classes entered in this contest were instructed by the following teachers: Shorthand, Mrsl Margaret Clukeyg Typewriting, Mrs. Anne Neasmithg Book- keeping and Commercial Arithmetic, Miss Frances Haskell. 40 3 5 M ATHLET FOOTBALL SQUAD When the 1934 football team takes the tield next year, Chris Tussing will find himself at the head of another fighting line, a liiie that will fight doubly hard to eoual or better the rej lation of the 1933 team, whfch was the best the school has had for iuary years. i 4 1 Next year's team will laclfing the superior playing of Rich Baker, "Octu" Leber, Chuck Rech, -fidtay Srnith, .lohnny H6 rmon, llGoot" Giroerer, Rich Ohstrorn. and Ralph tielbissg. Those ez-jfht regulars will be leaving the team, and we hope they will make a name for themselves in college as they have done in nigh school. Spring practice began this year shortly after the Easter vacation. A large number of boys reported tor practice the tirst night. Among this number there were only two regulars from last year, Ioe Balough and Captain Bob Rose. However, there is a chance that Alex Kish, UOsh" Bedell, and Bill Dick will be back next year. Coach Tussing stated that the outlook for next year is tair. The team will be a much lighter and less experienced team than this year's team, and they will face a harder schedule, which means that they rriigfht lose a few games. Despite these tough breaks, Chris said he wouldiput out :good team and one of which we may be proud. The whole school is behind the coach and his team, and Wish them a most successful season.

This unconquerable team took to the gridiron with a deteivniiintiori to be victorious, and as the record shows, they were victorious. This splendid record was set not only by the brilliant outstaniing playing of the team, but also by the unceasing tire.ess efforts of "Chris," and .the support ot this student body. Chris Tussing put out a team last year that made every high school coaclzin the state envious.

X I BASKETBALL VARSITY Early in December, a large squad of boys turned out for basketball. Many of the veterans of last year responded to the call, and the outlook for a successful season seemed very bright. The team was fairly successful in that it won six games although it lost thirteen. That is a better record than in some past years. The team played clean, fast ball, and they, as well as the coach, deserve credit, for they continued to play and practice hard in the face of some bad defeats. The scores were as follows: T.H.S.

The boys worked very hard and played a clean, fast game from beginning to end. The Reserves of this year will go to make up the Varsity of next year. The team won fourteen games and lost two, one of the victories going to Twin City lndustrial League Champions, the Spaulding Fibre Team. The scores were as follows: T. H . S. Opponents T.H. S.

Two defeats were suffered at the hands Cand feet! of Niagara Falls, and North Tonawanda eked out one victory by a very narrow margin. Although our lads did not end the season with a win in the sectional meet, their efforts resulted in a second place for Tonawanda. lt is the first year we have not won first place, and it is just as well to give the other fellow a chance. The prospects for next year are very bright, with the possible exception of the backstroke department. We are certain of losing Rick Ostrom who has been on the team for the past four years, and Bob Walters, our other backstroker, is uncertain of his return to school for the next swimming season. We have been exceptionally blessed this year in having a pair of exceptional divers. These divers, Osborn Gleason and lohn Drenocky, have been vying with one another for first place honors, and have very nearly alternated in vic- tories all season. Our hundred-yard freestyle swimmers were rather weak this year, with lohnny Vogt not returning until ,mid-year, and Eddy Beard not being able to cut his time in this event to less than one minute, five seconds. Next year the team will consist mainly of veterans, and we look for the best record in years. ln order to maintain the high standard set by the teams of the past, the teams of the future will have to be composed of experienced swimmers. So, come out, boys, for the 1935 season, and acquire experience for other years. MARTIN Ol-ISTROM, Manager 45 St nd g K O'Connor, D. Lewis, C. Tripodi, A. Janlce, W. Kaegebein, V. Andres Seated: A.

Many of the games were very closely con- tested, and it was impossible to predict the Winners until the last week of the season. The team shown above with Mary McDowell tor captain completed their schedule with but one game lost. This gave them the championship. To top off the season, a varsity team was chosen, which overwhelmingly de- teated North Tonawanda High School, and the Y. W. C. A. teams by such scores as you see below.

One was a novelty meet and included races, stunts, and games of a comic variety. This was Won by the luniors. The other meets were on a strictly competitive basis, and were all Won by the Seniors, ot which result the seniors are justly proud.

Mr. Mosher THE ATHLETIC COUNCIL The Athletic Council was organized in September, 1929, for the purpose of pro- tecting and advising the co-:iclms and pupils in athletics. ln September, 1933, the present Council elected as its officers: Dr. Dan Belliniger, president: Mr. Roland Baxter, vice-president: Ruth Supple, secretary. The Council has supervision over all athletics in the public schools of Tona- wanda, and exercised jurisdiction over all matters connected with athletic contests, both interscholastic and intramural. The d,ecision,,of the Council is final. It establishes the rules and regulations which "govern the eligibility of players, discipline of players, athletic finances and management. ' Meetings are held monthly at which time any special business is brought before the Council for decision. A project the Council is working on at present is some plan by which the girls may receive letters for their achievements in various sports: such as, basketball, swimming, :volley ball, and soft ball. Miss McPhilmey has worked out such a plan, but the Council must give its approval before the plan can go into effect. One outstanding decision this year was to award gold footballs to the boys on the first team as a mark of distinction for winning the title of Western New York Champions. The members of the present Council are: Dr. Dan Bellinger, Member of the Board of Education: Roland Baxter, Representative of the Alumni Association: Walter Fraser, Superintendent of Schools: Ralph Mosher, Principal of the High School: Walter Rose, Physical Education Instructor: Chris Tussing, Coach: Beatrice McPhilmy, Physical Education Instructor: Merle F ilsinger, Manager of Football: Charles Rech, Captain of Football Team: Ossian Bedell, Captain of Basketball Team: Benjarnan Bechtel, Manager Basketball: Martin Ohstrom, Manager of Swimming: Wilson Zuhr, Captain of Swimming Team, Robert Rose, Boys' Student Representative: Ruth Supple, Girls' Student Representative. The student representatives are elected at the beginning of the school year by the members of the Student Council. Although the Athletic Council is not an old organization, it has done much to promote the Welfare of the Tonawanda Schools, and one may feel assured that it will continue to function with even greater success in the future. RUTH SUPPLE 47 I THE T CLUB The purpose of this organization, the membership of which is limited to those boys who have earned their letter in athletics, is to promote in and around school the spirit of good sportsmanship and voluntary acceptance of rules that prevail in all organized sports. The club elected the following officers at the beginning of the year: "Bike" Beisiegel, president, Bob Rose, vice-president, l'Osh" Bedell, secretary and treasurer. Coach Tussing is the faculty adviser. The club held a successful sport dance early in April. lt is heartily supporting Mr. Mosher's idea of the l'Gentlemen's Agreement" in regard to smoking. Meetings are held every other Tuesday in Miss Far1'ell's room. MYRON BEISIEGEL - THE CHEER-LEADERS To the three of our cheer-leaders who are leaving us this year, we give a rousing Rah, rah, rah. First to Dick Essenburg, who has led us in our cheers for four years. Next to Dot Pickard, who has three stripesp and third to Leona Andres, who has served us for two years. l-lere's to the Team! May you do as much to keep up the pep and good spirits of the world you Work in as you have in Kibler High School! Whether the teams were winning or losing made no difference to these cheer-leaders. They were right there with the encouragement all the time and everywhere. To the fourth member of the team, Bob Canning, who has already done much for the school, we wish success for the coming year. May all of next year's cheer-leaders carry on the school spirit that this year's group has aroused. l OSEPHINE ARENZ 48 WN ACTIVITIES THE 'nTOURNP!LK5E's'5'I53 CLUB The lournalistic Club was formed for thebxrpose of teacliincf editorial work and 'iublishing the yea" book, the Tonawancian.

Ruth Supple and Robert Ross were appointed by the Council as student representf ,'.' L 'v.f- es on the Athletic Counfui. The purposes of the Council are: to promote a tin-'r spirit of cooperation among the students with their fellow-students and with tlefs iacultyp to help t ein the pupils in le-idersshipg to pit: note a spirit of democracy by giving the students a voice in the school government. Among the topics giv en ccnsideration this year was the revision of the Council constitution to meet the 1. .fern school conditions. This is very important because as the conditions Cin nge, the ideas of the present students change from those ot the students wh' I -"' --tied the Council. Ea-sl. year the girls who have played on the basketbaq, '-vzlleyball, and swimming teams have received a "K" for their interest in athletics. li was suggested that the "K" be changed to a UT," so that both P ovs ani girls will receive the same letter.

' mr '-at these rules could be assembled for the benefit of the classes. ln view of the tact that ttf number of students has increased since the constitu- tion of the Council was adopted, it was suggested that the representatives from the home rooms be reapportioned. As this very successful year is coming to a close, the Council wishes to thank the Faculty and Students for their cooperation in all it has endeavored to do. , LOUISE WOLF 51 THE TONAWANDA HIGH SCHOOL BAND Mr. Walter Koch, director lohn Albright I ulius Galambas David Mackey Bertram Rowe Lillian Albright Betty Grobe Alvin Marohn Donald Rowe Gordon Allen Norma Ames Walter Arenz George Ayrault Flett Baker lohn Beyer Paul Bylenok Kenneth Chase Carlton Cobernus Francis Conrad Phyllis Conrad Pearl Diebold lohn Drier Mabel Duff Curtis Eaden Charles Fitzgerald Anna Fraser Franklin Grobe William Grobe Donald Hackett Allen Herbst Roy Herschell Lockart Hicks Robert Howard Robert Iohnson William lohnson Henry Killian l erome Kohler Pauline Krauss Ruth Krieman Norman Lang lack Leighty Emerson Luther Lyle Luther Howard Metzloff Conrad Metzger William Meyers Vaugn Middleton Donald Milcham Donald Miller Robert Miller Lillian Mosely Robert Mowitz Ralph Novotny Roland Peters Robert Pteifer Louis Rabb Laurence Redner Verna Roberts Annamae Robillard Frederick Rose lerome Sauberan Lester Schutt Franklin Semon Eugene Shafer David Smith Clarence Spore, lr. lake Stegmeier Eugene Stone David Strebe Betty Struebing Rodney Van Gorder Robert Walters Richard Whitefield Robert Wolf Robert Woodrich William Yaw Kenneth Zuhr Here comes the band! What band? Why, our band in their brand new uni- forms. And are they proud! Well, they deserve to be after their long and faith- ful service to get them. We are quite sure that the appearance of those brilliant red and white uniforms on the field helped to win the Thanksgiving game. Per- haps it was interest in them that helped, to till the Riviera to standing room only, the two nights the band appeared at benefit performances, but it was the quality of the music that held the audience and brought them again whenever the band gave a concert or appeared in another program. Besides its regular activities, the band gave a concert in the Amherst High School in January, furnished the music for the A. W. A. play on February 7 and 8, presented the annual concert to a capacity house in our own auditorium on February 22, and took an important 'part in the music festival given by the musi- cal organizations of the schools of Tonawanda on April 17 and 18. The biggest event of the year was the contest at Fredonia on May 3. 52 THE ORCHESTRA Miss Dorothy Bush, Director Miss Elvie Nelson, Pianist Members: Lillian Albright, George Ayrault, Paul Bylenok, Carlton Cobernus, Phyllis Conrad, lulius Galambos, Raymond Herschell, Albert LaRusch, Edwin Lowitzer, David Mackey, William Meyers, Donald Mileham, Donald Miller, Virginia Montgomery, lean Neasmith, Louis Robb, Bertram Rowe, Donald Rowe, Eugene Shafer, David Smith, fake Stegmeier, Eugene Stone, Franklin Semon, Wodea Tony, Robert Wolf, Lyle Luther, Richard Whitefield. During the past year, the orchestra has taken an active part in school affairs. lt has furnished the musical background for nearly all the Friday assemblies, beside the Senior and American Legion plays. It also took part in the lovely musical festival held at Kibler High School in April. Because more violins were needed, the school has been furnishing free lessons to owners of violins, with Mr. Alfred Walters as teacher. To encourage boys and girls to develop musical talent, the school also gives one-fourth of a credit for each year of active membership in the orchestra. DOROTHY LYON I 1 I GIRLS' CHORUS What is sweeter to the ear than girlish voices uplifted in song? The Girls' Chorus is the largest organization in school, having 174 members. The chorus worked hard during X periods and long hours after school for their part in the musical festival. These ambitious singers have spent many enjoyable hours in their club. We all hope their good work may continue next year. 53 C CHEMISTRY CLUB The purpose and aim of the Chemistry Club, which is limited to those pupils who have taken at least one year of science, is to create interest in, and increase the knowledge of the science of chemistry. The club meets every Tuesday in the Chemistry Lab. Under the able direction of Miss Colman, the faculty ad- viser, the club has enjoyed many interesting programs and a number of success- tul parties. ln addition to giving two one-act plays and a movie for assembly programs, the club had a Christmas party and two roller skating parties. The me" 1bers ot the club have visited several industrial plants of the Tonawandas. 'I he officers are: President, Betty Bellingerg Secretary, lane Hackett: Treasurer, Frank E-ellinger. DOROTHY LYON FRENCH CLUB' "Le Cercle Francais" meets every other week, with Mlle. Rowe as its sponsor and the French language as its medium, English being discouraged by fines. The programs consist of games, songs, recitations, readings, and plays. Students with one semester of French are eligible for this club. ln assembly, the threesact play, "Nous Verrons" was given. Its comprehen- sion was evidently slight, since the audience left after the second actg however its appreciation was no longer in doubt when the school returned en masse later in the day to witness the denouement. Harmony was restored between America and France, and the French Club will continue to spread its culture. MARGARET M. BERHALTER 54 l C THE ETIQUETTE CLUB The purpose of the Etiquette Club which was instituted in our school in Septem- ber, 1931, is to help its members achieve poise and charm cf manner, and a greater degree of success in entertaining others. 'in enjoyable meeting is held on alternate Mondays at which interesting ant intricate facts are made cle-tr by our faculty adviser, Miss Farrell. Any girl is permitted to hand in unsigned questions for discussion. Miss Farrell reads the question, answers it, and then discusses it with the girls. Each meeting is devoted to one special topic: such as, the proper dress for various occasions, introductions, correct use of cosmetics, table etiquette, planning a party, and home decorating. A group of the girls, represented in costume in the picture, presenterzt a one-act comedy, Aunt Deborah's First Luncheon, in assembly on Friday, April 13. It proved to be a successful and popular number. President-Kathleen Hayes Treasurer-Ruth Supple PRO AND CON CLUB This club has just finished a very successful season. lts record of debates won is not impressive, but the experience gained and the quality of argumentation displayed more than justifies the feeling of satisfaction its members have exper- ienced. They have shown an enthusiastic spirit during the whole season and should feel proud of their efforts, for they have forced their opponents to do their utmost in order to win, and the victories were by a very close margin. A promising season is in store for next year, since two experienced teams will be back in school. The 1934 schedule was as follows: February 9 Lockport vs Tonawanda at Tonawanda Lost February 23 Kenmore vs Tonawanda at Kenmore Won March 2 Lackawanna vs Tonawanda at Tonawanda Lost April 13 Niagara Falls vs Tonawanda at Tonawanda Lost EUGENE S1-IAF ER 55 JUNIOR-SENIOR DRAMATIC CLUB One of the most successful clubs in school this year has been the lunior and Senior Dramatic Club. lt has approximately twenty-five members. The officers are: Robert Canning, presidentg Doris Leber, secrotaryp Ruth Supple, vice-presi- dentg Stewart Wolf, treasurer. The faculty advisers are Miss Bush and Mrs. Traver. The club is divided into three groups with a leader for each. Each group selects a play, prepares it, and presents it in Pssembly. The three presented this year Were: "At Breakfast," directed by Thelma Hudson: 'lThe Wedding Re- hearsal," directed by Ruth Supple: "The Kleptornaniacf' directed by Iris Semon. The excellent work of the members ol the groups wlie ther they were in the cast or assisting the directors resulted in assembly programs that won the enthusiastic approval of the student body. ROSINA BURNETT FRESHMAN-SOPHOMORE DRAMATIC CLUB This club is made up of about thirty enthusiastic members, who have worked hard on several dramatic productions. One of these plays was given in assem- bly for l'Book Week." At Christmas time, the club gave a party for members only, at which party games were played and refreshments served. At present plans are being discussed for a skating party. The officers are: President, Geraldine Reed: Secretary, William Shepard, Treasurer, LeRoy Gardiner. The faculty advisers are: Mrs. Alice Adema and Mrs. Lyola Daugherty.
