We, the Senior Class of 1939,
dedicate this Annual to Mr. Finegan,
who has advised us wisely thru our
last three years, and to Mrs. Ravel,
our Freshman Advisor.
FAREWELL TO THE BUFF AND BLUE
sunny haze of a summer's day
Rests o'er the Winfield hills,
the shadows fall with mellow rays
O'er laughing boys and girlsg'
ere the shadows go to stay
Beyond the hills so high,
Seniors with their brave, sad hearts
Must quietly say good-bye.
To friends and parents gathered 'round
Our thankfulness is yours,
all your help and charity
Which patiently enduresg
We'11 try to use the future hours
So as to living no grief,
to those haooy days with you
The Seniors say good-bye.
faculty, we'l1 ne'er forget
Nor the classes that they taught,
We hope the future will bring forth
Fine records of their work,
And may the years that swiftly fly
Bring kindnesses to them,
the Seniors on their new earned path
Have bravely said good-bye.

leading up to the klck because they
for this narrative. As I said before,
I decided that as long as I was where
around. The thought crossed my mind
what my old school chums of l939 were
a place that had Nalrplanes to rentu
and began a tour of this vast land. I headed East and was soon over
the large city of New York. The air traffic was terrific but I finally
managed to find a parking space on the Empire State Building which was
a midget compared to some of the buildings surrounding it. I allghted
from my plane and started in search of a mechanic who could give the
plane the once over so that lt would be in good condition when I ret-
A mechanic was walking toward me across the platform. I started
talking to him in a business like manner without really looking at him.
As'I finished my instructions, I looked at the mechanic and who should
I be talking to but Jimmie Murphy. Just then another mechanic in the
person of Holly Salisbury came saunterlng up. They told me that they
had a very good business repairing planes. Just as I was about to
leave, a redheaded girl, beautifully dressed in furs, paused slightly
after ascending the stairs to the platform. She commanded her plane
in a superclllous tone and when it was whirled over to her, placed
herself in it with all kinds of dignity. A long line of people carry-
ing numerous bundles, followed her to her plane and disposed of their
burdens in the baggage compartment. I thought that pompus person sit-
ting in her plane looked very familiar. I started to walk toward the
plane to command a closer view, but just at that time, one of the box
carriers fell-headlong and the contents of his bpx went flying in all
directions. The lady began to laugh and suddenly I knew who she was.
There was no mistaking that laugh. There was only like it ln all the
world and that belonged to Betty Watkins. I spoke to Betty and she
instantly recognized me. It was surprising how she suddenly lost all
her dignity and became like she always was, tlttering and amiable.
She told me that she was living on a farm QI had no doubt that it was
probably an estate! outside of West Winfield with her tall, dark hus-
band. She had been shopping for the afternoon in New York. After
exchanging a few more pleasantries, she flew off in her plane, and I
took the elevator to the ground.
I went out of the building into the street which, on accountlof
the tall buildings, was lighted by artificial sunlight. I bought a
paper because I thought it would be fun to see what international
affairs were like in 1950. It so happened that the man at the news-
paper stand gave me the wrong paper. The paper was not the famous
New York Paper I had ordered but a small town paper edited in East
Winfield, New York. As I was about to return the paper, my eye ca-
ught a name on the front page. Kelly--Frank Kelly. Glanclng upward,
I read the title of the featured article of the week, writer of the
Editor. It was uln My Oplnionn, by Frank Kelly. One thought crossed
my mind. I never knew Kelly wanted to be an editor, but the prof-
ession is suitable to him. However, I returned the paper and rec-
eived a copy of the one I had ordered.
I reserved a room in the Waldorf Astoria. Everything was so
modernlstic ln the hotel that I was completely lost upon coming
out of my room. As I walked along a maze of tortuous corridors, I
became more and more mixed up. Finally, I came to a staircase. I
walked down the stairs and enticed a narrow hall. At the end of this
hall was a round

notice me much so I decided to look around. I was
looking over my shoulder at a man making bread when I bumped into some
one. I looked around culckly with apologies all over my tongue, but
they were never said because I was too surprised to talk. I was look-
ing at Jimmie Doran who was head dish washer at this hotel. Jimmie
had to get right back to his work and therefore d1dn't have much time
to talk to me. However, he did show me the way out of the hotel.
New York had changed so much from the time I last saw it fSen1or
Trip l939l that I had great difficulty finding my way around. I walk-
ed for half an hour with no object in mind. I really hadn't noticed
the time as I had been so busy looking at modernized New York. I cont-
inued on.my way and suddenly came to a large black and white building
which bore the sign 'Cotton Club.n Two people were just standing,
looking at the door as if they expected it to open at any moment. I
walked up to them with the purpose of asking directions. WPardon me,u
I said, but that was as far as I got. The two people were none other
than Kilt and Buck. They told me that they were waitors here and were
waiting for someone to open the door for them so they could go in. I
asked them if they weren't afraid of losing their jobs but they said
it didn't matter if they lost their old Jobs. Conversing with them
further, I learned that Ralph Griffith was in Texas and I made a men-
tal note to stop there on my tour. After getting directions from the
boys, I opened the door for them and then continued on my way.
I went into one of the larger department stores. As usual I was
completely lost. I finally found the women's wardrobe dept. and was
cordially and warmly greeted by a charming girl who seemed to be the
head of the department. S e had striking blue eyes and ultra upsweep
hair do. It took me quite a few minutes to realize I was talking to
Helen Colwell. From her I learned that Janet Smith was at the head of
the style department in another large New York Store and that she
CJanetJ went to the Paris openings twice a year. Helen also said that
Janet often encountered there Mildred Sandford who was studying voice
culture in Paris. Consulting with Helen further, I learned that Eliz-
abeth Kehoe had her own exclusive dress shop on Fifth Avenue. I could
imagine that Beth was probably her own best model. I bought a becom-
ing l9bO made dress which Helen very efficiently helped me select, and
left the store after receiving directions to Beth's shoppe.
Arriving at Beth's Shoppe, I was escorted into Miss Kehoe's
private office by Margaret Shermeta, Beth's trim and efficient Private
Secretary. Beth was so much like her old self that I felt quite at
home, even though I was in the midst of ultra modern grandeur. We had
a grand time talking about Beth's lucrative business. However, it
wasn't long before we were reminiscing. I remembered that Beth and
Kathleen Huntley had been very good high school friends and so I in-
quired about Kit. It seems that she had realized her life long ambit-
ion and was running a beauty salon in Ilion. After being personally
conducted through Beth's shopoe, I returned to my hotel, gathered up
my few belongings, and started for my plane. I was going to continue
my tour of 1950.
I headed South with no purpose in mind. I passed several pass-
enger planes all of which were decorated by advertising. On several
of the ads on these planes I saw a very familiar face. On more cldsely
scrutinizing this ad, I recognized the face of Cecelia Christian. Her
natural curly eyelashes were advertising mascara and eye make-up.
As my plane was speedy and the time went fast, I was soon over
Miami, Florida. Never having seen this famous place, I decided to land
and look over the future of it. I spent a day and a night exploring
Miami. The one startling event that happened to me there, was my sur-
prising meeting with Earl Palmer. Earl was running a Drug Store and
was doing a very good business. I hadn't any intention of leaving the
United States, but Earl said that if I went to Havana, Cuba, I would
no doubt run into Joe Horan. As looking up the class of '39 was my
primary idea, I went to Cuba. There at the exact snot where Earl had
told me I would find him, was Joe Horan doing a Rhumba act in a Havana
night club. One couldn't miss that red hair. when Joe had finished
his act, he came over to my table, having recognized me before. He
told me that dancing was just a side line with him. His main business
was running a tobacco farm in the country. Joe was as nice and danced
as well as he had in l939.
I left Cuba that night and flew most of the night over the Gulf-of
Mexico. Just about dawn I landed in a small Texas oil town where I had
been told I would find Ralph Griffith. Sure enough, as I walked down
the street later in the day, I was confronted by a large sign which
boasted of Griffith's Oil Refinery. I found Ralph's private office.
Ralph was the exact picture of the industrious, prosperous, business
man. He personally conducted me on a tour of his refinery. We were
constantly accompanied by a tall, serious looking person. I didn't
notice him especially until Ralph called my attention to him. He was
Alex Cursh. He was Ralph's private secretary and also his bodyguard.
As usual, Alex said nothing. As soon as we again reached Ralph's off-
ice, he was swept up again in his workg so I left.
When I left Texas, I was determined to do a little exploring. I
had read an advertisement which told of, and showed pictures of Hull's
Dude Ranch in Nevada. I had a sneaking suspicion that the Ranch was
now run by Ann Hull. I flew over the state of Nevada sometime before
I located a building that announced itself as Ann Hull's Dude Ranch,
to all air traffic. I landed and inquired of the boy who took over my
plane, before I could find the owner. Following the boy's directions,
I went to the corral. Ann was then watching some of her Whandsu train-
ing horses. She hadn't changed a bit. Her position suited her and she
seemed extremely happy. Ann offered to give me
riding lessons and to
throw a big party for me if I would stay. However, I declined the off-
er, having other business to attend to. As Ann
and I were walking to-
ward the ranch, we encountered, among other people a rather large,
athletic woman. Ann said, niou remember Veronica Byrnes, don't you?N
I was surprised at finding NBonnieu in such a place and said as much.
They both expIained to me that WBonnien was Dean of Women at Penn State
and that she spent all her spare time at Ann's Dude Ranch. Reluctantly
I took my leave of two of my oldest friends.
I had always wanted to go to Hollywood and

than my old school
mate, Robert Knapp. Bob informed me that he owned a ranch on which he
raised citrus fruits outside of Hollywood. He spent all his time there
when he wasn't working at the studio. Bob gave
me that if I went to this address, I would find
me an address and told
a big surprise. SUPP?-
ises intrigue me so I went to the address. It was an office of a big
producer. His private secretary was, of course, Virginia Rising. Nat-
urally, Ginny and I fell to talking on the common
days. I learned from her that Harriett Welch was
Belgian Congo. Cnce when Ginny's job interrupted

over the pages, I caught a glimpse of a face that

looked vaguely fam-
iliar. Recovering the place, I decided that the face belonged to How-
ard Palmer. He was advertising Arrow Shirts. Ginny confirmed my dec-
ision and said that Howard had a chance for a movie contract.
After spending a few more hours in Hollywood, I climbed into my
plane and headed North. Somewhere over the state of Montana, motor
trouble forced me to land in a small clearing in an isolated part of
the state. Upon landing, I had noticed something that looked like a
lookout tower. I left my plane and commenced to walk through the woods,
toward the tower. It was a good three mile walk and when I came out in-
to the clearing in which the tower stood, I was pretty well exhausted.
A few feet from the steel girders of the tower was a small cabin with
a lean-to kitchen. Smoke was coming from a dilapitated chimney prot-
ruding from the lean-to. I presumed that this was a Forest Ranger's
cabin. I knocked on the door and was confronted by Albert Will. After
recovering sufficiently from my surprise, I introduced myself to Albert,
as he d1dn't seem to recognize me. He remembered me instantly and made
me feel completely at home in his cabin. I told him my difficulty and,
after we had eaten a lunch which he had prepared, he set out to see if
he could fix my plane. Left to myself, I explored my surroundings.
From the pictures and news items covering the walls of the cabin, I
gathered that Albert had played professional football before becoming
Ranger. Sometime later Albert returned and said that the plane
was ready to fly. I thanked him for his kindness and set off for the
My tour next took me to Montreal. I landed at that Canadian City,
and began a tour of inspection. At a famous Concert Hall, I heard two
famous artists, brother and sister, whom I knew
very well. After the
concert, I went backstage and lauded John and Josephine Koenig for their
splendid work. John played the violin and Josephine sang Contralto.
We talked about the class of '39 of which John had been the President.
From Montreal, I flew Southeast to Boston,
where John and Jos-
ephine had told me I would find Faith Lohnas. Faith was running a
very famous bride's school. I promised Faith that if I ever decided
to get married, I would take a course at her school.
I had completed my circuit and so, began the last lap back to West
Winfield, In the Ilion Gorge, I set my plane down on a spacious air
landing field, which the owners of the Black and White had made for
air service. Mr. and Mrs. Paul Burnett were proprietors of the stand
Mrs. Burnett was formerly Marion Connor. These occurences did not
surprise me. Paul and Marion told me that Francis Brewer was married
and lived on a farm somewhere in North Winfield, They also told me
that if I visited the West Winfield Central School, I would find
Arlene Cole teaching students typing and accounting, and Ruth Rice
teaching Home Economics. I remembered that it was Arlene who had
typed the Class Prophecy after I had finished writing it back in 1939
I had witnessed the whereabouts of every member of the class,
except myself. However, I d1dn't have to see myself in 1950. I knew
what I would be doing then. I was pretty sure that I was in New York
doing Commercial Art work and singing as a sideline.
I took my rented plane back to the place where I had rented lt.
It seems that I had kept it much longer then the time I had rented lt
for. The owner of the plane was very angry. In fact, he was furious
In fact, he kicked me and I whirled through space and landed ln 1939
where I had left off.
Yes, clasp the parchment tightly these few hours
And learn to know ach1evement's haunting taste:
Roll triumph on your tongue before lt soursg
Do not rush with superficial haste
Through this experience. Be glad
And proud to hold the prize you struggled for,
Believe there's nothing further to be had
--That you will be content forevermore.
Believe it till you wake some sudden dawn,
When all the world's ablaze with sunlight fire
To find that poor illusion strangely gone
Before the splendor of a new desire.
In silence you will lay this scroll away,
And that will be your Graduation Day.

LEST YOU FORGET
Washlngton's a monument,
Wash1ngton's a square,
Washington's an institute,
And a thoroughfare.
Washington is even more:

State and maybe ridge--
Wash1ngton's so numerous,
Shades of Valley Forge!
Few there are
Who now connect

THE SENIOR TRIP TO NEW YORK
At this time of the year every Senior has two main thoughts in his mind. The serious
thought of graduation and the happy thought of spending three days in New York with the rest
of his class on the yearly Senior Trip.
We are leaving West Winfield at 11:00 A.M. on June 28, and intend to arrive at Hotel Plc-
cadilly about 6:00 P.M. and have dinner in the Hotel dining room. Later that evening we will
take the combined National Broadcasting Company Studio and Television Tour. This tour will
take approximatly one and one half hours and will be conducted by trained guides. It will
include visits to points of interest in the development and a description of all art work,
architectural features, and the history of our project. We expect to find the television
Studio very interesting for this is such a modern invention. The upper floor of the seventy
story RCA Building will be our next aim. This story, 850 feet above the street is a promenade
200 feet long and 20 feet wide. We are anxious to see how it feels seventy stories up.
At the end of the tour we will stop at the Radio City Music Hall for a movie and the
HRockettes.H If time permits before retiring, we hope to see the Bright Lights of Broadway.
The following morning we will board the yacht Marilda at West 42nd St. and Hudson River.
On this boat trip we will see Ellis Island Immigration Station, Statue of Liberty, Battery
Park, Queensborough Bridge, Tri-borough Bridge, and the Navy Yard and see the cruisers and
Battleships anchored and the New York Skyline. The afternoon and evening will be spent at the
New York World's Fa1r.Perhaps later that evening we will visit floor 102, of the Empire State
Building, 1250 feet above the ground.
Friday morning we are allowed to do any individual sight-seeing or shopping that we wish.
In the afternoon we will start for home, tired but happy andqfull of the wonders of New York.
--Betty Jane Watkins
Tonight marks the occasion of another commencement exercise to be held in West
Winfield, and the sixth from this-our new school.
We are indeed happy to see such a well filled assembly, and we, the class of 1939
most heartily welcome you to our graduation.
We know that a feeling of deep interest and pride prompted your presence here--
to share with us our joy--and we sincerely appreciate it. We have enjoyed our four
years in high school together, and tonight we are filled with contrasting emotions-
---Regret-that our school days are over---Happiness that we have attained the goal
for which we have striven.
We trust that our accomplishment which brings Joy to our hearts tonight, may be
increased many times in the ensuing years.
In closing let me once again, on behalf of my class-mateS extend to you a most
We are gathered here tonight to commemorate the close of our hlgh school career
and the commencement of a new life in which we hope to make even a greater contrib-
ution to the world's heritage. It would be unfair to pass into l1fe's sterner side
without first thanking you for giving us a start on such a clear, calm sea. Without
your aid we might have been retarded by many barriers that would threaten to wreck
our vessel for life.
To you, our teachers and friends, we express our sincere thanks for all you have
so cheerfully done for each one of us, and we trust that the years to come may demon-
strate to your satisfaction as well as to our own that you were really as successful
as your ambitions could desire, in turning us out-men and women. We expect great
things from ourselves, and we trust that you, too, may look forward to great things
from us and that you may not be disappointed.
Parents, we realize that it is your silent influence, throughout the under-
current of our school activities, that has laid the foundation for this hour and has
made it possible for us to stand thus proudly before you. We now begin to grasp
more definitely the value of your work in installing into our minds your own lofty
We do realize how greatful we must be to you, through
principles and noble ideals.
all life, for these years of training.
Tonight we stand at the very gateway of l1fe's activities, prepared by these
years of careful instruction and watchful guidance to make our lives hapry ones. As
we look back how easy it is to estimate the Wvalue receivedu of our school days. Now
our time has come for the working out of our npromise to pay!W The world will at
once look at us to pay back the wealth of good things it has been bestowlng upon us.
It will demand our noblest character, our highest demonstrations of attainment, and
our most faithful, self-sacrificing service. So as we step forth we hope to walk ln-
to the world bravely, with full realization of all that is required of us, and of our
ability to meet every requirement. We hope to make our controlling spirit the loy-
alty, courage, resolution, and high minded integrity shown in these lines with which
we must now bid each other farewell,

THE SENIOR CLASS
lwith apologies to Longfellowl
Between the dark and the daylight
when the morn is beginning to break,
The Seniors trip gaily homeward
With all their lessons at stake.
They left the party at school last night,
With orders from Prof. to go homey
They nodded with sober faces,
But westward they did roam.
I heard ln the library next morning
The murmer of whispering lips,
As English notes were consulted
In hopes they'd make fewer slips.
The sound of a door that is opened
With voices soft and sweet
They tried to convince Miss Turner
To give them their test next week.
From the office I saw in the corridor,
Descending the broad hall stair,
Gay Betty and Beth slyly laughing
They'dyhad fun-so what do they care?
Class meeting was called to Idle? order,
And Johnn1e's mind is becoming a wreckg
Whose wouldn't when Kelly makes a motion
And Enna says,uI obJect.9
A sudden rush from the home room,
A terrific noise in the hall,
K1lt's out and Buck's close behind him
Who's to say who will win in that brawl?
Before we get on the busses
In Prof's. room we will gather
While Bonnie and Murph make plans for a dance
We will all hope for good weather.
Marlon will be in the kitchen
Paul will sell tickets quite nearg
Knapper will check, beside a sign,
HDonat1ons Accepted Here.W
As for breaking up the stag line
G1nny's expert at the art,
But speaking of NArt.n, we think 1t's Ceciel
who really has his heart.
On the court 1t's Doran guarding,
On the diamond Joe pitches the ball,
Ep and Alex are our heroes
For their football playing last fall.
Don't think only the boys are sports,
For there's Helen and Cornle still
Arlene and Janet also olay
Pick them better if you will.
Earl's brother brings us our candy.
At selling Kit takes the cakeg
With each of her sales we visualize
The trip to the fair we'll take.
The Seniors have their students
- In Faith, whom you rarely hear
And Josephine who commands, NQu1et!u
And puts her hand to her ear.
In the library Ed1th's talking
Makes the teachers fret and fuss,
But to Margaret they always smile
She's quieter than the rest of us.
While Ralph the lights did manage
When the class depicted, NCharm Sohooln
Millie as Miss Curtis
Made the others mind the rule.
And now to make the roll complete
We add Frances, Ruth, and Harr1ett's name
hope that they and all the class
Will someday have much fame.

AS WE KNOW THEM
A little nonsense now and then, is relished by the best of men.
Lucky is the executive who has as his secretary this efficient young lady.
A dash of nonsense and a shake of fun,
Plus earnestness in the classroom, makes his career well begun.
Search far and near and o'er the sea, no better friend you'll find than she.
May every charm that now appears, increase and brighten throughout the years.
She is full of pep, we know, full of dash and vim and EO.
Ever happy, ever wise, winning ways and sparkling eyes.
Tranquil people accomplish much.
To know how to hide one's ability as uAlexW does is great skill.
Surely his smile and jolly ways, success will bring in later days.
nGr1ffn is one who has purchased a one-way ticket to success.
At dancing uJody'sn tops, ln sports he holds full sway,
And his level-eyed sincerety will bring success some day.
A cheery face, a merry disposition, WEnnan leaves a warm spot in our hearts.
Lots of fun and a cheery smile, may they stay with you nK1tH all the while.
Friendly, clever, sweet, and gay, we'll boast uL1sbethu any day.
If 'K1ltn were all virtues, he would not be the swell sport and grand kid he is.
Kelly's complimentary grin ls an integral part of him. I
The field of music will find a new particlpant in NKnapper.u
Busy, alert, energetic each day, but with her friends NJo'su delightfully gay.
Now and then a little fun, and now and then some work, but never any time to shirk
Faith is a quiet little miss with much perserverance.
A sweet attractive kind of grace.
NArt' is a possessor of two rare qualities, loyalty and honesty.
To him we know success will come, for nJ1m'su a good fellow chuck full of fun.
Courtesy, industry, and a pleasing personality--Earl.
A personality rare indeed, a friend, if ever a friend you need.
The typewriter holds her keys to success.
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance.
A fellow more nclean cutu than 'hollien can't be found.
She has bright hair and pretty eyes, and in her studies she's always wise.
'Ta1n't her hair--'ta1n't her smile--'ta1n't her eyes--'ta1n't her w1les--
'Ta1n't her silvery voice you say. Tell you what, 1t's just her way!
She that is wise says little.
Would that we could have to bless us, half the poise that she possesses.
She's studlous and witty, we'll not deny, that she's full of fun we can testify.
Harr1ette's path through life will be a friendly one,
His sense of humor brightens the classroom, his original thinking, the mind
'Ep's' touchdowns everyone will remember, when our class is divided by time.

The father answered:
nHow sad, too bad, your dad.N

Little dabs of powder My lover him has went away:
Little speaks of paint My lover him has went to stay.
Make the mighty freckles Him won't go to I,
Look as though they a1n't. Me won't went to he.
