"I shall detain you no longer in the demonstration of what we should not do, but
straight conduct ye to a hillside, where I will point ye out the right path of a virtuous
and noble education: laborious indeed at the first ascent, but else so smooth, so
green, so full of goodly prospect, and melodious sounds on every side, that the harp
of Orpheus was not more charming."

The Student Council has been very active this year. Wie were unfortunate in
starting our meetings late and therefore we have not accomplished all that We had
hoped to. During the past year the council has discussed the problem of traffic in
the school, and it has established a group of guides and ushers which has successfully
controlled the traffic in the corridors and auditorium. Also it has taken up the
topic of the hljoint System" that deals with the awards for extra-curricular activities
in the school. The council has debated other such subjects as the ujunior-senior
fight," the athletic department activities, and other minor problems which arise in
the school. The council has been most diligent and busy and is pleased to say that
the manners and conduct of the student body have this year reflected a dignity be-
coming our school system. Wie are proud of our work and hope future councils
will build upon the constructive work we have accomplished this year.

HISTUIQY DI: Tl-IE SENIDID CLASS
September 1926-Three cute little girls and four cunning little boys wan-
dered into Mrs. Davis, room in the old school on Academy Street. They
were unaccustomed to the ways of school, but under Mrs. Davis, excellent
instruction were soon able to progress into the second grade. These children
were Luella Sprague, Marion Miars, Roderick McLean, Stuart Allen, Robert
Lally, and Frederick Helter-line. Hulda Zweifel was with us for only part
of this year but returned in third grade to spend part of that year with us.
September 1928-The first to join us was Roger Jones in the third grade
with Miss Harris as our guide.
September 1929--Our number was then increased by Elizabeth McCartney
and John Kelley with Miss Ethel Smith as our efficient teacher in the fourth
September 1930-When we returned to classes the new school awaited us
with Miss Thelma Hingre as our instructor. Norma Jane Evans and Helen
Sullivan now joined our ranks with Emily Hetzinger and Lester Chamberlain
coming from Sangerfield to enlarge our original class to thirteen. The first
part of the year our room was on the east side of the building facing Staf-
ford Avenue but in the middle of the year we moved across the hall to re-
main the rest of the time in that room which is now the regular fifth grade.
September 1931-During the sixth year with Miss Helen Korbel we were
joined by Phyllis Hinman from Deansboro, William Avery, and Edward Te-
September 1932-Several people from Deansboro joined our class this year.
Eleanor Lloyd, Mildred Klotzbach, Ramon Iles, and Milton Wratten were the
pupils who started school together at Deansboro. Besides these there were
Isabelle Cichon and Marion Day. Edna Quillman, Hulda Zweifel, Ruth Og-
den, Donald Williams, and Gertrude Lloyd who also joined when the Deans-
boro pupils came in. There were no new members in the eighth grade but
we had a very enjoyable year. Our class was divided into sections with Miss
Simmons and Miss Heckert as our home room teachers. In June we had a
banquet in the homemaking rooms.
September 1934-At last in high school we proceeded to enter into all social
activities that we could. The new recruits this year were: Francis Jory,
Rosemary 0,Dowd, and Rachel Henry.
September 1935-We started off with a bang with two new members: Ruth
and John Pesto, who Came here from New York. Early in the year we had
a uGeorge Washingtonii Hop and it was a big success.
September 1936--We were all together in one room this year. Two addi-
tions to the class were Dorothy and Donald Beha who came from West Ley-
den. Almost as soon as the year began we started talking about getting
junior rings. We got them the latter part of April and we were very pleased
with them. On May 9 was our Junior Prom which turned out to be a huge
success. As is the usual custom we put up a dummy for the seniors to take
down. We juniors were the victors because we warded off the seniors all
September l937fln this, our last year. we have been very active in all school
activities. Our new members are Mabel Angier, Francis Van Slyke, Lynn
Williams, Gertrude Zieres, and John Zweifel. ln November we held the
4'Pigskin parades' and a few weeks later on- December 3 we presented our
senior play, 'iThe -House of a Thousand Thrillsf, It was attended by a ca-
pacity crowd and the proceeds were quite a boost to our treasury. During
both our junior and senior years the boys and girls have won the basketball
Throughout the years of high school we have been fortunate in having good
leaders and through their fine efforts our enterprises have turned out suc-
For one week in the late spring of 1963 there was flashed across the country
by all the wireless stations of the most outstanding cities of the U. S. A. and printed
in the personal columns of the most outstanding newspapers, an urgent message made
by a wealthy, but eccentric elderly gentleman. In part, it was as follows, MClass of
,38 of W. C. S., where are you all? Drop a line to me about what you are doing or
let me know about the others. W. B. Pat, 410 Thurston Road, Rochester, N. Yf,
Within twenty-four hours the gentleman was receiving response by mail, tele-
graph, and even by his television-phone.
Among the replies he received were these which follow:
Mrs. Allen wrote that her husband, Stuart, had been named the champion potato
grower in the country and that he owns a farm in Sangerfield. He is said to have
raised potatoes of incomparable size.
Mabel Angier, in her telegram to Mr. Pat, informed us that she was instructress
in an exclusive girls, school located in Oneonta.
One of the most outstanding students of our former senior class made a personal
call on Mr. Pat and told him that he had received a contract as language teacher of
Waterville .High School with Monsieur Wilcox as his faithful assistant, Billy is
noted for his beautiful "mots d amour" which he utters to his female pupils.
Due to the fact that Mr. Beha is vitally concerned with the grasshopper plague
which is affecting every farmer throughout the country, he is unable to answer the
message which Mr. Pat has sent. But his assistant writes that he is very successful
as the head of the Department of Agriculture at Washington. We certainly hope
that you are successful in doing away with the grasshopper plague, Don.
Gertrude Lloyd and Emily Betzinger have retired after an outstanding career of
singing and dancing in a French Casino and they have received part ownership of
Our hero, Lester Chamberlain, who has successfully reached the top as champion
prize-fighter need not reply to Mr. Pat's announcement, for his picture has covered
the front page of every outstanding newspaper of the United States.
Word has reached Mr. Pat that Isabelle Cichon is living in the very depths of
the African jungle. Her soft voice is soothing to the natives.
Mrs. Johnson, commonly known to her colleagues as Marion Day, is now in the
midst of her term as governor of Texas. Show them your authority, Marion.
By our recent means of communication, former Miss Norma Jane Evans sends the
following message: "My husband, Francis Jory, has been very fortunate this year in
obtaining a medal declaring him champion of the orange growers of Californiaff Her
husband, unbeknown to her, encloses the following statement about his wife, Norma:
'fln spite of all my persuading she persists in following her usual occupation of pros-
pecting for goldf,
Rachel Henry says that she is enjoying her married life in Morrisville with her
husband 'tAl,,' or uDoc" for short.
Ramon Iles is now the only remaining individual who understands the Einstein
Theory of Relativity.
A clipping was received, by mail, stating that the temperamental actress, Phyllis
Hinman, was residing at Beverly Hills and was said to have been the best dresser
The manager of the International Basketball squad notified Mr. Pat that his
team, Lynn Williams, Roger Jones, John Kelley, Robert Lally, and Donald Williams,
had had a successful season and they wish to send their regards to the rest of the
class of '38.
Dorothy Beha writes that surely Mr. Pat realizes that she is the famous clarinet
player on Uncle Lukeis EZZ Program.
Frederick Helterlineis wife, Shirley, television-phoned that Freddy is a Supreme
Court Justice and has all the police officers of the land at his beck and call.
Mildred Klotzbach wired that she waited two years after graduation before she
married George MacConnell and then settled down with him in the thriving metropolis
Roderick McLean wired that he had taken over the McLean Undertaking Parlors
but that his favorite pastimes were the fairer sex and engineering.
Marion Miars writes that she is a governess for Eleanor Lloyd and Bob's chil-

Edna Quillman obligingly informed Mr. Pat that she was now the proprietress
of nYe Quainte Tea Shoppew somewhere near Times Square and that Elizabeth Mr--
Cartney liked the dance hall business so well that she now owned a chain with Ray
Maxson as her general manager.
Ruth Ogdenis reputation preceded her answer to the advertisement, for she had
combined her interest for art and typing and invented a machine which draws pic-
tures as you press the keys.
Mr. Pat found out from reliable sources that Rosemary O'Dowd was still waiting
for Milton Wratten to pop the question.
Ruth Pesto wrote a very amusing letter to Mr. Pat in which she stated that John
Pesto was the new head of West Point and that she along with her husband ran a
horse and dog farm just outside of New York City.
And Mr. Pat further found out from miscellaneous sources that:
Helen Sullivan, always interested in history, had married a man 35 years her
Luella Sprague was appearing in Watson's g'The Heart Breakerw in the Schnizzle-
pritz Theater in San Francisco.
Francis Van Slyke had just won the 500 mile auto classic at Indianapolis.
Edward Tepolt had invented a one-wheeled motorcycle so it would not take as
much petrol to run it as it did to run a two-wheeled one.
Gertrude Zieres was teaching industrial arts at a very exclusive school.
Hulda Zweifel was following in Florence Nightingale's footsteps but that she
carried a flashlight instead of a lamp.
Within six weeks Mr. Pat had received replies from all parts of the country and
after a few straggling ones had finally come in, Mr. Pat was overwhelmed to find
that he had received, if not a reply, at least information about every member of the
Class of 738 of W. C. S.
We, the Graduating Class of 738 do hereby expound and put forth this, our
will and testament.
Stuart Allen leaves, with not much pleasure, Marjorie Loftus to whoever will
have her. Easy, Marj, put down that piano.
Mabel Angier gives her quiet ways to Virginia Brocker. Only a hint, Ginny.
William Avery leaves his "short pants" to Ralph Pelkey. We understand you
box, Ralph, so maybe you can use them.

Now Mr. Patterson will have an easier time looking up words.
Dorothy Beha bequeaths her height to Reba Quillman. Come up and see us
Emily Betzinger leaves her eight year option on Ted to someone who might be
interested. It was fun while it lasted, wasnit it, Ted?

you'll have an excuse to sit on someoneis lap.
Marion Day bequeaths her ability to chatter to Josephine Furner.
Norma Jane Evans leaves her 'Sway with the teachers" to Mary Gibbons. Norma
has set a good precedent, Mary.
Freddie Helterline leaves his uncanny 'gluckw to Ross McCabe. When you're
going eighty, you need a little uluckf' Ross.
Rachel Henry leaves her cash register to Catherine Heidel. Nice work if you
can get it.
Phyllis Hinman bestows her truckin, ability to Mr. Thomson. Add that to your
repertoire, Mr. Thomson.

still four, isnit it Mr. Jenkins?
Roger Jones gives his athletic prowess to Bill Zweifel. There's hopes for the
basketball team now, Coach.
Francis Jory leaves his Liability to farm it" to John Mango. Now, John, you can
tap dance to the music of the sweet potatoes.

a string around your spending money, Milt.
Mildred Klotzbach leaves Hfleorgiew to Gladys Cechowic. He likes blondes,

manage it, Miss Cotes?
Gertrude Lloyd bequeaths her lovely smile and sparkling eyes to Anne Evans.
Do you think you can use them, Anne?

evaluate yourself, Mr. Thomson.
Roderick McLean is undecided. Will he give Norma Jane away? Listen in next
year for the answer to this perplexing riddle.
Marion Miars leaves her kicking ability to Margaret Wlilliams. It might come
in handy when you want to get rid of the boy friend, Muggins.
Ruth Ogden leaves her artistic ability to Eileen Burth. It adds a personal touch
to make-up, Eileen.
John Pesto bequeaths his definite ideas on love to Tommy Roberts. He also has
a line, but heis taking that with him. Sorry, Tommy.

use some of the names, Shirley.

do you do it, Helen?

but he's taking Rosemary with him.
Hulda Zweifel leaves her perpetual smile to Dotty Townsend. It's ulovely to
look at," Dotty. Or have you noticed?
John Zweifel leaves his perseverance to a junior. You need it to make the
grade, eh John?
Longin Kucharski gives his senior English book fand hcis glad to get rid of itj
to the junior class. Nasty stuff, wasn't it, Longin?
Rosemary O'Dowd smiles encouragingly at the junior class. What could be I1
sweeter gift, juniors?
And last but not least Gertrude Zieres leaves the school behind. She says it's
too big and heavy, especially with the new addition, to carry away.

Since first we entered here
Ancl those we niet as 1-lassinales

For the lessons they have taught ns
While we have lalrorerl here.
So farewell to Alma Mater
Farewell to friends and teachers
We are sad that we are leaving

Although only organized last year under Miss Field, the Girls, Ensemble has
made notable progress, appearing in many public appearances. Last fall we sang
for the l,LlI'CIll-rllC21l,'ll6l' meeting and on December l9 we sang for the annual Christ-
nias program. Some of our other appearances included singing for an Eastern Star
meeting in llehruary, and taking part in a special assembly given for a group of
principals and supervisors who visited our school April l2.
Graduation will take some of our most talented singers but We will still have our
accompanist, Katharina Christeler.

This year the chorus has had a very successful year under the direction of Miss
Thelma Field. The group consisted of 56 voices.
We have made four public appearances. On December 19, at our annual Christ-
mas program, we sang for the play, uWhy the Chimes Rang." On December 21 we
repeated the same program for the junior-senior high school assembly program.
At the meeting of the Parent-Teacher Association in April, twenty from our group
sang the songs that we had prepared for the Sectional Music Contest at Clinton. On
April 7 we journeyed to Clinton to sing at the contest but we did not compete. The
numbers we sang were: a'Praise Ye the Lord," by Tchaikovskig '4Tell Me Not of a
Lovely Lassf' by Cecil Forsyth, and l',lacob,s Ladderf' a negro spiritual.
We are sorry that we will lose so many of our members through graduation and
we wish them every success in the future.
The Science Club, a branch of the Camera Club, is under the direction of Mr.
Peterson and has five members. Meetings are held each week and members work on
some selected project. One of the projects which has been completed is a sounds ef-
fects machine, which will ring a door bell, telephone, door buzzer, or auto horn.
Some of the boys have started an aquarium, which has not been completed at the
present time. Other projects have been taken up, such as the use of the candid camera
and some astronomy with the new telescope.
The club has given demonstrations at the Parent-Teacher meetings at which
were exhibited a movie sound projector, splicer, high teslia coil, and some of the
apparatus for developing and enlarging pictures.
The five members of the club are Milton Jannone, Thomas Roberts, Harry North-
rup, Arthur Sanders, and Warren Rankins.
The activities of the Camera Club this year have been largely confined to the
developing, printing and enlarging of pictures. Each member of the club has access
to the dark room after school and it is always a popular place. The dark room is, as
the name suggests, a dark room in which the pictures are developed.
Early in the year we elected Norma Evans for president, Harry Borthrup, vice
presidentg Edward Manion, secretaryg and Hulda Zweifel, publicity agent.
This club has many future possibilities and each year we are making increased
Dancing Club is an activity in which social dancing is taught. This club was
started after the Christmas holidays because of the pupils' demands for it and now
it has about seventy-eight regular members.
The first part of this period is devoted to the instruction of dance steps. A few
we have had in the course of this year are the waltz step and the fox trot with various
combinations of each. The second half of the period is spent in the enjoyment of
social dancing. For variation we have had some square dancing.
This club is very instructive and beneficial to those members who haxe had no
training or experience in social dancing before.

The baseball squad is one of the largest that Waterville has had in recent years.
From last yearls varsity there are John Kelley, pitcher, Pesto, 3rd base, D. Williams,
2nd base, lles, R. Lally, and Warriner, fielders.
Coach Roberts has around forty candidates from which he will pick about ten
to complete the rest of the team.
Some of the most promising candidates are McLean, Dempsey, Benjamin, ,lau-
none, L. Williams, Cook, Helterline, Kucharski, Wratten, and D. Beha.
The squad is working hard and a successful season is looked forward to.
May 2-Waterville at Sauquoit.
May 6-Clinton at Waterville.
May 13-Waterville at New Hartford.
May 20-Waterville at Hamilton.
May 23-Sauquoit at Waterville,
May 27-Waterville at Whitesboro
June 3-Cazenovia at Waterville.
Tennis, one of the minor sports, looks very promising. The team will be led by
.lannone, J. Kelley, N. Byrnes, some of last year's players. To complete the team will
be J. Pesto, Jones, Reagan, Doyle, and Hahle.
Track, the other minor sport, will be stronger as a large squad has turned out.
From last year's team are Jannone, Allen, Rankins, and Eerrucci. Meets are being
arranged with Sauquoit, West Winfield and the team may enter the Cherry Valley
Out of about a dozen students out for cheer leading this year, only five cheer
leaders and two substitutes could be chosen. All of the candidates were trained by
Miss Bauer, Stuart Allen, and Emily Betzinger. Part of the faculty was judges, and
they picked Anne Evans, Dorothea Townsend, Emily Betzinger, Margaret Williams,
Stuart Allen, Roderick McLean, and John Mango. Each cheer leader got a chance
to do his part in cheering the team on to victory. The hardest job of all. that of
being chief, was handed to Roderick McLean. Under his capable leadership and
organization, the cheer leading squad had a very successful season. It7s nice work
if you can earn it, but it's hard work earning it!
I NTIQAMU IQAI. SDCIQTS
The most important and contested intramural sport this year was basketball.
The seniors. composed of five varsity ff1Cl'HlJ0l'S and good substitutes, breezed
through their battles undefeated. They won five and lost none, winning the cham-
The juniors were second, the sophomores third, and the freshmen last.
The remaining program of boys' intramurals was played in softball.
Because there was no time for the classes to play their soccer tournament, the gym
Classes were divided into teams, namely, Harvard, Princeton, and Hamilton. Har-
vard won tlie tournament by winning all their games.
Following the example set by the boys, the senior girls won the basketball cham-
pionship in which the sophomores placed second.
Through the intramural games each student has an opportunity of participating.
The sucvess of this yearis intramurals was due to the kind cooperation of Coach
Roberts, Miss Bauer, and the Athletic Council.
