Yvhen first entering 'lirott Vocational School some labored at typewriters and calculators, others filled the lower corridors with ghastly odors in attempt to explore the secrets of unknown gases and liquids. Still others tinkered with machinery trying to discover the malady of a Nlodel T Ford. As freshmen the shop boys stood in awe at the glorified seniors of '33 who knew all the secrets of machines, formulas, carburetors, and accelerators that they themselves were trying so hard to master. These once mere youngsters are now going forth as adult efficiency experts each soon to procure a job that will lead him to the way of happiness in success. After the first year which always proves to be the most difficult, we entered our senior year under the student council guidance of Marvin Beck, president, Wlalter Thomas, vice-president, loe Iamarco, secretary, and Mike Portick, treasurer. Under the capable leadership of these fine officers a year of pleasant activities as well as scholastic success was completed. At the opening of the basketball season, an athletic association composed of 150 members was formed. Mike Ercliak was elected president, Edward Clark, vice-president, and Anne NVinger, secretary. On lanuary 18, the "Land O'Cotton" Nlinstrel Show was given in the Audi- torium ofrlirott Vocational School. The seniors, Ioe lamarco and Iohn Tomazeweslxi, took two leading rolls assisted by a chorus composed of many of their fellowclassmen. The Varsity Basketball Team gloried in a successful season as members to the R. P. l. League for the first time. 'lihe efforts of the following seniors, Russell Gregory, lohn Porreco, Charles Hollwwicli, and Urvin Alaybe, combined with that of Trott High Students were largely responsible for Trott's success. ln Nlarch a startling announcement from the office stated that those who con- sidered themselves seniors were to inform their respective teachers. It was surprising that the time spent at 'lirott was nearly over. Xve had entered with one thought in mind, to reach the same port, and perhaps combine pleasure with worlc. Now we had nearly reached our pinnacle happily, if not a bit reluctantly. At the first senior meeting Mr. Small was chosen class advisor. At the second meeting a precedent was established in the election of Arlene Alaimo as president of the Senior Class, the first girl to be chosen for this high position in the six years ofTrott's existence. Ethyl Brown was elected vice-president, lohn Porreco, secretary, and Stanley Chervinslci, treasurer. lNe have now reached our goal, one which seemed so distant when we entered rlirott Vocational School. After graduation, we will scatter to find a place in the world and then settle down to a routine. NVe may never see each other again in school, but long may we remember our grand days at 'l'. V.

This course otllers instruction in chemistry, drafting, auto mechanics, machinery, electricity, and millwrighting. Students taking this course are taught every phase ol' their individual work and when they are graduated they are alile to continue it as their life's work. The largest shop division is the millwright shop which numhers thirty-two students. Each course otlered is complete in itself. The vocational group as well as the com- mercial department is operated on the Dalton Plan. XVhen a student completes sixteen units of work, he is graduated from the trade he is taking and is eligihle for employment. Because of this system sixty students of the vocational group have heen placed with employers. The vocational department does not consider its jolm complete until students are properly placed where their knowledge will aid them in their work. Follow up visits are made hy the instructors to ascertain it' any further help is needed hy the graduate. 15 T11 ls' R Is' 1"L If C T 0 R I ll ll It II ll Il H ll I TROTT COMMERCIAL AND CONTINUATION DEPARTMENTS Trott's Commercial Section is composed of about three hundred students who receive worthwhile and complete instruction in typewriting, filing, office practice, lmookkeeping, and operation of office appliances. Since rapid and accurate work are two of' the outstanding requirements of persons engaged in office work, this phase is particularly stressed until every graduate is a skilled worker in his or her field. The course has proved itself' to lie one of the most popular in the school owing to the tact that it too is operated on the Dalton Plan. Ut' all the departments in Trott, the Continuation Department is the most interesting and the least known. It is chiefly a social service unit created for the purpose of' aiding children who are unalile to attend full time school. It is here that the working lioy or girl is acquainted with the latest ideas in the profession which he or she is following. Here as well as in the vocation and commercial departments, the school helps to secure employment for the pupils. 16 7' ll lc' If lc' I" I, ln' L' Y' 0 R I ll ll Il ll Il ll ll Il I HIGH SCHOOL DEPARTMENT The High School Uepzirlmenl of Troll Vocalionzil School, which was crcalecl in lhe yczir of H752 lo relieve thc over-crowclecl comlilion in lhe Senior High School, is coniposeml ol' seconcl year sluclenls.

Since that time there have been three issues ot' the "'l'rott Herald" and the yearbook, "The Reflector," published. Xvorking both during and atiter school hours, the statl' did its utmost to make a success of the paper. "The Trott Herald" belonged to the XVestern New York lnter-Scholastic Press Association.

David Saunders, a noted explorer of the tropical islands, hroke the silence. "There is no douht in my mind," he said, "as to which side has the right ofit," and he poured forth this story: "The sun came out in all its glory and it was hard to helieve that a few hours hefore a fierce tropical storm had lashed the sky and sea to a fury and that the ship had gone down. lack Hays opened his eyes and found himself on a small native island, the sole survivor of his exploration ship, 'The Christinaf He saw a graceful figure approaching and as she came nearer perceived she was heautiful heyond words. Her long hlack hair floated ahout her slender form, from her lips came a startled cry. She seemed to draw away, hut he called out and finally through his knowledge of many native dialects he made her understand that he was in need of food and shelter. She looked stealthily ahout her and then led him to a strange, crude, temple-like structure carved in the likeness of the head of a great crocodile. "Days passed swiftly hy for lack as he lay under the tender care of the lovely Laneen. Une evening as they watched the moonlight that played with the shadows cast hy the rocks, he hegged her to flee with him to another island where they could live the rest of their days safely and happily in a pagan paradise. She, at last, consented and through the long darkness they traveled silently and swiftly in an out-rigger canoe heneath the tropical stars. At dawn they landed upon an un- inhahitcd island. "The long, lovely tropical days passed lazily, softly hy: hut this new-found happiness was not to last, for suddenly lack was stricken with the dreaded fever of the tropics and for days lay in a semi-coma. He wasted rapidly despite Laneen's efforts until at last she knew that death was close. Now she understood: she had offended the temple god and in his anger he was taking her heloved away from her. There was only one thing to do. After a tremendous struggle she got lack into the canoe and returned to Crocodile Island. Hiding the hoat and its precious cargo she sped to the temple and offered herself as a sacrifice for the ceremonial dance which was to take place at the rising of the moon of flowers. As a holy creature set aside for sacrifice she would have access to the golden seal hearing the image of the crocodile god whose hrand would protect from all evil any who hore it. It gave the wearer tremendous power hut few availed themselves of it, for it could he ohtained only through a willing, living sacrifice to the hideous god. "XVhen she had procured the seal, she hound lack securely and hlinded with tears hranded him deeply on the chest with the heated seal, then heavy-hearted hut resolute returned to the temple to he sacrificed. "She was arranged reverently in the sacrihcial garments of great heauty. lleafening through the tropical night came the slow, rhythmic pounding of the tom toms. The ceremony had hegun. Xvith light step and eyes aglow she stepped into the center of the circle and swaying in time to the instruments hegan the dance ofdeath. At the close of day as the golden sun kissed the shadows of twilight Laneen hid adieu to all earthly things and was given to the crocodile: hut even as the slavering jaws of the scaly monster approached, she cried out the place where her lover was hidden and claimed the natives' help and protection hy the seal of the god he wore. fcontinued on Page 35j 54 T ll la' R ln' I" I, If L' T 0 R I ll ll ll Il ll Il ll Il I LAUGII AND THE WORLD LAUGIIS WITH YOU lfddie: l have sad news.
