The Tenth Volume of the Yearhoolc
Pulzlishecl By The Senior Class of
Vestal Central School Vestal, New Yorlc
Who dreamed a dream one day almost ten years ago,
Who saw the need of a yearbook in the dark hours before the dawn
when Vestal still was sleeping,
Who put the will behind this dream making it become a reality in the
golden memories we count in retrospect.
We, the Class of 1952, affectionately dedicate this volume to Mr.
Stephen O. Salmon for his untiring efforts and his guiding help through
our years in this Vestal Central School.
When our high school days are but dim lights of the past
and the mind is busied with worldly care, should this brief
protrayal of those days so important in our present high
school life bring back our fondest thoughts and make us
more appreciative of the weary Way of life. With this
thought in mind we will feel rewarded for our labor and

f' 5'x?lX.,Sx,-,xv..5'- N
"I wish to publicly compliment the Seniors of 1952 for the part they have played in helping
me maintain the standards Mr. Salmon spent nine years in developing. I am sure he feels
very proud of you." -- Arthur J. Peck
"Do the difficult job now. Take a little more time to do the 'impossible'." -- Mr. Genor
They're jolly and friendly, and in cheer they are rich
I've found as our halls they have graced." -- Miss Anna Strong
"Its saving good humor will probably make the post-commencement days of this class
more enjoyable than that of many." -- Mr. Kearny
"Tongues in trees
Books in running brooks
Sermons in stones
Good in everything." -- Miss Murphy
"Beauty is its own excuse for being. A curve is the most beautiful distance between two
points." -- James Williams
"The realization that you know very little is the beginning of wisdom." -- Miss Stahl
"One of the best Senior classes I have ever had the privilege of working with. Good luck!
-- Mr. Marvin
"To a wonderful class:
Be ever careful in your choice of friends,
And let your special love be given to those
Whose strength of character may prove the Whip
That drives you ever to fair Wisdom's goal." -- Mrs. Dorothy Harder

My interest will always be with you." -- Louis .T . Pond

way in the years that are ahead of you." -- Phil Hubbard

classes I have ever worked with. Luck to all." -- Mr. Hoover
"To the graduates of 1952:
To keep a sense of humor when adversity overcomes you will enable you to resolve the
mysteries of living a fuller, richer, and more enjoyable life." -- H. Reiter
OUR BIG STORY
The American people are a reading public. This is largely due to
the fine system of education enjoyed by all of us. As a result of this
great ability of our public, we have many sources of reading material,
most widely used being the magazine. In these publications may be
found many types of literature - essays, poems, plays, stories, and
even letters. In these aforementioned kinds of literature are found
innumerable subjects. Some articles are fictional and have as their
purpose entertainment only and other articles tell of news and also in-
form the public in other fields. It is only fitting that these magazines
tell about our educational system which enables the public to read these
magazines, and which is also such an important factor in the develop-
ment of our nation and its government.
The editorial staff of "The Denn has prepared this year's annual in
the form of articles, from famous magazines, telling about education at
Vestal. As you read the following pages, we hope that you will enjoy
seeing and reading about your school, your friends, and yes -- even
yourself, in pictures and articles from the leading magazines of the

SENIORS' MEMOIRS - TO OUR FACULTY
As we turn another page in our book of memories, we come face to
face with the realities of life. We realize that you, both as a group and
as individuals, have helped us along the paths in which we had many
sunny and dark days, along the rough roads of discouragement and the
hills of triumph.
Now upon graudation, though we are glad to end the chapter on our
school days, we are reluctant to close the school door behind us. To
you we extend our deepest thanks and appreciation for the consideration
given us -- not only in school work but in the task of growing up. May
your kind thoughts and wise consideration aid others as they have helped

Though most of the Freshman Class had spent nine years in the same surroundings, it
seemed, as they climbed the stairs of Vestal Central in 1948, that it was just the begin-
ning. And indeed it was! Until now they had been somewhat immature and had been
accustomed to thinking of themselves as children. But suddenly they had grown up and
had definite goals to attain before they would be fitted to make their way in life. What
these lives were to be would depend a large measure on the foundations that would be laid
for them in the next four years. They were most fortunate to have as their principal and
leader, a man of unexcelled ability and understanding, Mr. Stephen O. Salmon.
At the first get-together of the class, officers were elected, and everyone pledged
themselves to do their part in all undertakings. Those chosen were: President--Kenneth
Stanley, Vice-President--Craig Johnson, Secretary- -Mary Coughling and Treasurer--
Robert Little. As it had been the tradition for many years for the Senior Class to take a
trip, plans were discussed to raise money for this.
During the fall months, there was the usual run of football games with the Junior
Varsity defeating every opposing team. Many of the Freshmen attended the big bonfire
that helped spur the teams on to victory. That year the Cross Country team under Sid
Stock won its first Triple Cities Championship led by Bill Mitchell, who also took the
There was a lovely Christmas Pageant in which many of the Freshmen participated
that year, and in the Spring the class had its first big social function- -the Freshman April
Fool Dance. The great success of this square dance gave the pea-green class confidence
in its ability. At the close of the term, the class went to Lily Lake for a picnic.
Then the summer of 1949 flew by and once more the class was back in school. But
now one year of their high school career was past, and they had earned the title of Sopho-
mores. This time they chose as leaders: Kenneth Stanley--President, Craig Johnson--
Vice President, Kathleen Stanton--Secretary and Julie Rossi--Treasurer. They had as
class advisors: Miss Ann Strong, Mr. Donald Callahan, Mr. Leland Genor, and Mr. James
As usual, music played a big part in the progress of the class, under the able super-
vision of Mrs. MacLowry, of the vocal department, and Mr. Marvin, Mr. Eddy and Mr.
Galough of the instrumental department. With choirs, orchestra, band, etc., most every-
one had a part in some form of harmonizing.
In April the class had the traditional Sophomore dance called the "Spring Fever
Frolic," at which there was a record crowd. Then the class settled down to finish out the
term and prepare for the year to come.
Class History continuedl
In the fall of 1950, they started their Junior year. By this time they felt quite grown
up and ready to face most anything. In choosing their officers, this class had one of the
biggest political campaigns in the history of the school. The Gold Party had a most amus-
ing assembly to spread their viewpoint and the Green Party sponsored a dance to raise
money for the class. The Green Party emerged victorious with Julia Rossi--President,
Roger Westgate--Vice President, Marcia Mann--Secretary, and Georgia Sandidge--
Treasurer. Faculty advisors for this year were: Mrs. Harder, Miss Stahl and Miss
Coach Stock helped bring his boys through a third victory and they thereby won per-
manent possession of the Triple Cities Trophy. That fall they also won the Sectional
Championship. In November, the class ordered their rings andeagerly awaited the day
when they would arrive so they could display them.
At Christmas time, a beautiful Christmas Pageant was presented under the direction
of Miss Murphy, with background music furnished by Mrs. MacLowry's Mixed Choir.
Many Juniors had the pleasure of taking part in this. Then came basketball season with
Coach Hubbard's boy's playing many thrilling games. That year a new school scoring
record for a single year was set.
Shortly after basketball season, the class decided to have a roller skating party. This
resulted in some spills, and many laughs, but a grand time was had by all at Roller Drome
in Tioga. Sometime in May, the big event everyone had been awaiting rolled around--the
Junior Prom. It was probably the most beautiful prom ever held in Vestal, with the gor-
geous decorations completed one whole day ahead of time, a feat never before accom-
plished by a class. "Southern Rhapsody" as the dance was named, had as a setting a
southern mansion and flower garden complete even to a moon. Anna Kintner, who was
crowned queen by Sue Knight, was followed to her throne by her attendants who were:
Marion Wagner, Gail Felton, Elaine Bishop, Marcia Mann, Kathleen Stanton, Jean Zalen-
ski, Georgia Sandidge, Julia Rossi, Ann VanDuzer, Lois Rathbone, Mary Lou Watts and
In June, much to the sorrow of the Junior Class, came Class Day. Both classes went
to Lily Lake where the Juniors were initiated by the Seniors in the form of bending their
knees to every Senior, being painted with lipstick and squirted with cheap perfume. The
Seniors were truly having their hayday until some of the Junior boys threw Neil Robinson,
a Senior, into the lake. However, the day ended on a happy note with the Junior class feed-
ing the Seniors and the reading of the Senior Class Will and Prophecy. The year came to
a close with the Junior Class in geat anticipation of the big year yet to come.
At last, this class which but four short years before had started in Vestal as Fresh-
men, had'reached their glory--they were now known as the Senior Class of 1952. Every-
one was more than a little sad to learn that Mr. Salmon would not be with them this all
important year 5 for due to poor health, he had been given a year's leave of absence. The
heavy responsibilities of this year were given to a man admired by all, Mr. Peck.
To run their affairs, the following officers were elected: President- -Roger Westgate,
Vice President--Norman Spence, Secretary--Kathleen Stanton, and Treasurer--Coit
Conant, Mrs. MacLowry, Miss Fitzgerald and a newcomer to Vestal, Miss Langeland,
were their homeroom teachers, and of course "Pop" Bundy was their leader. To head
the Student Congress for that year, Norman Spence was chosen President, Dalton Willis as
Vice-President, Kathleen Stanton as Secretary, and Georgia Sandidge as Treasurer.
About the first activity on the agenda for the Seniors was their annual magazine cam-
paign, headed by Lucille Banick, Lois Rathbone and Roger Searles. As it had been decided
there could be no more class trips in Vestal due to the enormous size of the classes, they
were raising money for a banquet and dance at the end of the year.
Football really played abig part in this school year. With such Senior stars as "Butch"
Class History continuedl
Conant, Johnny Compton, Bob Wickizer, Dave Gould, "Smokey" McMullen, Dado Dittrich,
Gene Potter, Bob Little and Roger Westgate, Vestal had a winning year, the first in a long
time. School spirity played abig part during football season, and it was at its height when
Vestal tied with its biggest competitor, Union-Endicott. Directly after the end of the sea-
son, Student Congress sponsored a square dance to honor the team, cheerleaders, band,
etc. A few weeks later in assembly, Coach Hoover was awarded a trophy by Bill Prior,
noted sports writer, as most outstanding coach of the season. A trophy was also awarded
the Sophomore Class for having the most school spirit.
In the early part of December the Senior Class presented its Senior play which took
the place of aChristmas Pageant for that year. Playing the lead roles were: James Blos-
som, Roger Westgate and Joyce Cook. Their excellent performance brought a great deal
of praise. A week before Christmas the traditional Senior Ball was held. Georgia San-
didge and Roger Westgate were crowned queen and king of the "Marshmallow Swirl". At-
tending them were: Elaine Bishop, Marcia Mann, Kathleen Stanton, Lois Rathbone, Anna
Kintnerg Coit Conant, John Compton, Kenneth Stanley, David McMullen and Robert Little.
After Christmas vacation everyone crammed for mid-terms, and after all the marks
tallied up, Barbara Platt was decided upon as Valedictorian and Alberta Gardner as Salut-
atorian. By this time, work on their yearbook was well under way and the Seniors were
busy selling subscriptions to it. With Craig Johnson and Alberta Gardner as co-editors,
everyone did his part.
Seniors who belong to the United Nations Club are looking forward to their trip to New
York City, and Senior members of Choir are awaiting state competition, which is to be at
Vestal this year.
This class is now looking ahead to the events of the year still awaiting them--class
day, their Senior banquet, but most of all, Graduation, and the receiving of the diplomas
they have worked so hard for. Then they will be leaving the school as finished men and
women, ready to take their places in life among the citizens of the greatest Republic and
grandest nation of all the world, representing before its people the best schools of all that
cover the land from ocean to ocean. And may their lives be such as shall bring pride to
the Vestal Central School.
"And soon the ship glides out between
the rocks that guard the shore,
Bearing the class of '52
To be a class no more."
"But looking forward with a smile
of courage strong and high,
To meet in that glad afterwhile
No more to say good-by."
Well, well! Here we are approaching the scene of our happy Class Day Reunion
of 1962. We smile as we fondly remember the perhaps chaotic, but certain joyous
festivities in which we as Seniors participated ten years ago. At this first rennion
in a decade, we find that our classmates have fallen into varied and novel ways of
life. Let's visit the groups of friends who have congregated here, so that we may
renew past acquaintances and more readily instill in our memories the avid joys and
fervor of this day.

very capable cashier. They say Bob's hit a gold mine in his store.
Over on a bench we see A. VANDUZER and D. SASINA talking about their jobs
with the Air Force as secretaries.
Here comes J . COMPTON, and his following of spotlessly-clean pigs. They say
he won a hog-calling contest in Georgia, and has made a career of it.
Whew! What was that that just whizzed by us? A plane? A rocket? Superman?
No! J. BLOSSOM on roller skates Che owns a private rink nowj with B. WESTON in
his lil ol' hot rod fhe's a stock car racerj, in close pursuit. G. LATE LL, a builder
of hot rods, is waiting to pick up the pieces and start all over again.
Over on a bench, a bunch of younger children, fchildren of our classmatesj are
quizzing H. BETZ and G. DUNHAM, who profess to be teachers. Glenn, an Ameri-
can History teacher, is admitting woefully that they've got him stumped. fBy the
way, where IS Maine? D
T. HOGG, of swimming fame is flutter-kicking through the lilies at Lily Lake.
'Tis said she swam the English channel, gasped "What a swim! I'm dead!" and
they renamed it the Dead Sea in her honor.
What is that crowd milling around over there?Aha! A.COYLE is giving one of
her famous speeches on how to catch a man. Men, watch out! Coyle's back in town!
Oh, Oh! Here comes J. GREGORY, with tickets to the famous Plush Room the
Hotel Zaza, now boasting the appearance of the great dancer, and Jimmy giving his
own version of the Tango.
Over on the side we see a terrific tennis match in progress. P. ELLIS and O.
MURPHEY, Phys. Ed. Instructors, are matching each other.
It's rumored that we have some famous people in our midst. Ah, yes! There on
the bench, surrounded by empty platters is J. COOK, spaghetti-twirling champ of the
actors' union! Talking about show life with her is M. COUGHLIN, who runs a midget
circus. Her theme song? Oh, no! STILL "Shrimp Boats!" Also, there is C. GAR-
RETT, next to Clem Cadiddlehopper of T.V. fame. L. JONES, aprofessional skater,
is bathing her blistered feet in the wading pool. What is the comotion about? Some-
one has fainted! Now we see! R. MATHER, an opera singe r, has the gals swooning.
We have another famous singer in our midst, also. Lovely L. RATHBONE, singer
at the Copa Club. What is that swarm of girls so excited about? No wonder! Here
comes D. MC MULLEN, of movie fame. He has played a villain, a football star, and
a great lover. Guess which role he liked best! The grunts and groans you hear are
coming from CHUCK CONRAD, the bearded wrestler of Zanzabar. And, oh yes!
Don't forget C. I. JOHNSON, cigar-smoking president of G.E.! fGeneral Entertain-
ment, that is.l
There seems to be a square dance in session! Dancing to some of G. MOREY'S
new album of records we see B. HAVEN and S. GATES, who still go to East Maine
We have two professors in our midst. They are A. KINTNER and B. MORRISON,
who attended a local institute. fThey were so well liked that they kept them as pro-
M. HANEY and M. MANN, two lovely models, are being photographed by J. POT-
TER. They are modeling some creations by M. WAGNER, a leading fashion design-
er. Off to one side, M. LOVE, is sketching them. She's an artist for the Local An-
nual Calendar. With her is J. ZALENSKI, covered with paint. They say she's an
famous artist now.
Class Prophecy continuedj
Who is the man in the new Cadillac that just drove up? You might know! Sur-
rounded by beautiful girls, we see J. HOOVER, a rich furrier in New York, who
started his own mink farm back in 1952. Some gossipers say that the mink were
caught out of season, but we won't talk about that!
Down by the lake is another animated group. In it we see A. ROSSI, a leading
brain surgeon, L. BANICK, who is raising her family to be sailors, G. WILCOX,
director of the City Service Band of America, K. STANTON who patches up roman-
ces through her lovelorn column, D. JONES, a leading physicist and mathematician,
and that boy nobody can beat, C. CONANT, kicking footballs 'way up in the blue, as
an expert football coach.
As for the authors of these, well, we're the little mice in the corner who don't
squeak anymore. We drank some lubricating oil.
And so, at the end of a happy reunion, we have learned what has become of our
Class of 1952--a class to remember--a class of distinction!

SPORTS AT VESTAL CENTRAL HIGH
Varsity magazine is a magazine devoted exclusively to the interests
of young men. We, the editors of Varsity, feel that though we have
dedicated printing space to the coverage of collegiate athletics we have
neglected an integral unit of the sports field, high school sports. This
part of our nation's athletic program is an important feeder for the
professional, semi-professional and collegiate teams. Because this
program is an urgent farm system, teaching our future Joe Dimaggio's,
Jim Thorpe's and Bob Mathias's the desired fundamentals, we propose
to devote this entire issue to articles on high school sports.
As an example of the typical American youth competing in inter-
school and intra-mural sports we have had the good fortune of having
the cooperation of the fine coaching staff at Vestal Central High School
to report on the activities of their athletic department. We would like
to extend our deepest thanks to them for their cooperation in allowing
us the privilege of using their team members as models for the photo-
graphs which illustrate these articles.

Early in the spring of 1951, the planning was started for the fall football season. In-
cluded in this program was pre-season training at Camp Barton located on Lake Cayuga.
It's primary purpose was to condition the boys into one powerful well-oiled machine g not
only physically but with an exceptionally fine mental outlook on the success of the 1951
It is this vision of success that carried them through the most successful season of a
decade making their sought-after goal a reality.
As one of the youngest coaches
in our section, he was appointed
Head Coach of the Vestal Bears
for the season of 1951. He devel- b
oped Ve s t al ' s Bears inexperi-
enced team into one of the best if
teams Vestal had ever had.
For all his work he was a-
warded the "Coach-of-the-Year
Trophy" by WNBF.

MUSIC AT VESTAL CENTRAL HIGH SCHCOL
VOCA L MUSIC
When Mrs. MacLowry took over as vocal music director 9 years ago,
there was a Mixed Choir of 18 girls and 3 boys. The second year a Boy's
Choir was organized with 20 participating and practically everyone of them
members of the football team. Also that year marked the organization of a
High School Girls' Choir, a 7th and 8th grade Boys' Choir, and a 7th and 8th
grade Girls' Choir. This was just a beginning. Each year the choirs have
grown and improved. A 7th and 8th grade mixed choir was formed by Mr.
John Kostun, Jr., who was recently added to the faculty.
Three concerts are held each spring. The elementary concerts are under
the direction of Miss Carmela Scott. The annual senior concert this year was
held on April 3rd, This was the first time that the concert has ever been
held before Easter and for that reason a different type of music was used.
The choirs sang some Easter music and the songs for the Girls' Choir was
chosen with the thoughts of Spring in mind. "Holy City" and "Russian Picnic"
were two outstanding selections sung by the Mixed Choir. A Fred Waring
arrangement of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic", with combined choirs 7
through 12 and orchestral accompaniment, formed the finale of the evening.
INSTRUME NTA L MUSIC
The Vestal Instrumental Department has come a long Way since Mr.
William O. Marvin took over twelve years ago. His first group of twelve
musicians, lacking both uniforms and equipment, has developed into a full
instrumental department numbering around five hundred students. There was
an orchestra at that time too, comprised of twenty players and the next year
a Marching Band was formed.
Everyone that was able to play at all was drafted and a waiting list, such
as we have now, was absolutely unheard of. The first year the Band played
three concerts, one in the middle of the year ffour numbersl, the Spring Con-
cert, and a few selections for a P.T.A. Meeting. This number has increased
to approximately 20 concerts annually in addition to the many outside per-
formances by individual members or groups of the Band. As time passed, new
organizations were added to the Instrumental Department. At present there
are seven bands: Concert, Marching, Junior High, Intermediate, Pep, Swing,
and a parade band at Vestal Center. There are four orchestras: Senior,
Beginners' and the Vestal Center Orchestra. The department now owns 230
uniforms and all the odd instruments. The teaching staff has been increased
from one to four teachers, including Mr. Marvin, Mr. Galough, Mr. Eddy and
MRS. MAC LOWRY
The Vestal Central School, in its
desire and will to aspire in developing
a strong vocal department, interviewed
many applicants and out of the many
who desired the position, Mrs. Leona
Mac Lowry was appointed.
She became amember of our faculty
nine years ago,bringing with her to our
vocal department a great source of
vitality and ability, and with this spirit
Mrs. Mac Lowry developed aboys' choir
and a girls' choir, in addition to the
already-formed mixed choir. "Mrs,
Mac", as she is fondly called, is one
of the best known and beloved persons
in our school. Her radiant personality
and sincere interest in her students
will long be remembered by every

MR . MARVIN
The success of our instrumental
division is due to the untiring and relent-

O. Marvin. Twelve years ago he came to
the Vestal Central School and with a nucle-

concert of 98 members and a marching
band of 136.

There is no mystery about success in
life, and no great genius is necessary to
accomplish things. If you think properly,
Work, and apply the rules of common
sense with a firm belief in your own
ability and the opportunities which the
world offers you, you can attain success.

THE CLASS SONG
V Music by Donna Mc Lain
aw-wfxfw .s,.,,l..tua -as
Words by Lois Rathbone
The twelve full years of school life
Which now make up our past
Are tender years of happiness
That, for us, have flown too fast.
In cap and gown we say farewell
This graduation year
To teachers, books, and friends alike
To much that we held dear
And as we tread the road of life
With hopes and courage high
We'll treasure happy memories
Of Vestal Central High
THE ALMA MATER
Along the rippling Susquehanna,
The shadow of our high school falls,
And mellow mingled tints of sunset,
Illumine now our classic halls.
While students gather round thine altar,
True loyalty to thee confess,
And sing with happy hearts and voices
In praise of VCS.
O, dear old Vestal Central High School,
Attend our pledge of faithfulness,
As unto thee our hearts we render
With a love that we shall ere possess.
And always in our true endeavor,
We'l1 try for thee to win much fame,
O, Alma Mater, we all hail thee
And honor thy dear name.
