So many people and events have con- tributed to the enjoyment of our few years in high school that, as time passes, we realize the necessity of a permanent record of names and faces, of work and play, of clubs and classes, of students and teachers. As an aid in the pleasant recall of memories of these years, we are proud to present this twentinolirth Paradox. 5 4 . , I Ari' TW f , , x..

May their sacrifice remind us that our best efforts, too, are needed that America may endure and grow as a great nation in peace.

What is Mr. Ralph IVI. lfaust muttering to himself now? That I never attend school functions? Ilinm! My worthy opponent and I tpointing' to the devilj are always present in spirit. l admit, though, that the devil's presence is often more obvious. Well, we decided to attend this performance in person-at least one of us. We made a bet and agreed that whoever won, could be present physically, while the other could be here as usual, spiritually, I bet that the Paradox would be out in September instead of june! I won.

The President of the Class of 1946, Fred Peckham. l'RliSllJliNT'S SPIQICCH The president of the Class of 1945 in his challenge to the Class of 1946, expressed the hope that we would be the first peace-time class to graduate from A O, ll. S. following Wlorld VVar ll. That hope has been realized and the Class xfffnfmutk-afmenwwfffffffa-fwfrmein1anmwmmrfififas1:ifif-nrwtf-k-A--M-kit-k-tiff-kuuffff-A SMALL FRY: l..i. Ilan lllulcahey Teddy Clayton Jeanne 0'Brien THE PARADOX of 1946 proudly and thankfully accepts the challenge which this realization pre- sents. Naturally we are thankful that the war and its attendant horrors is now a part of history. We are proud to-be the first class to join the Alumni of O.H.S. in this new post-war world. This, my fellow-classmates, is indeed a challenge because upon our shoulders and upon the shoulders of the graduating classes of the thousands of high schools throughout the country will rest, in a large measure, the responsibility of righting the wrongs which were responsible for the so-recent war. Some of the older people here tonight may smile at this assumption of such a responsibility by people of our youth and inexperience. To them I would say that a generation ago the responsibility and opportunity which now is ours, was theirs. May we do our part to see to it that the class which will graduate here a generation from tonight will not be called upon to go forth to battle. So, therefore, we, the Class of 1946, do hereby challenge you, the Class of 1947, to hold fast to those principles of Liberty, justice, Fair-play and Democracy which you and we learned in our years here, that upon your graduation next year you will go forth into the world with higher standards and greater vision than we or any other class before us has had. St. Peter: I notice that there is one person on this stage who doesn't look as if he belonged here. He lacks that sophisticated blase air that Seniors have, he seems so young, so innocent, so shy and retiring. Jack Godden: I am Jack Godden, President of the Junior Class and I wish to accept the challenge of the Senior President. Devil: You'll be sorry! C-lacks' speechzl My acceptance of the challenge handed to us by the Seniors is tinged with pleasure and with sadness. We are actually paying tribute to you Seniors, who after four years of diligent study, now stand on the threshold of a new venture. Your ventures will not all be the same but whatever goals you decide upon the class of 1947 wishes you the best of luck. You have set many splendid examples which we can well afford to follow. It is with a feeling of regret that we, tonight, prepare to say farewell to you as a class. You will be long remembered by many of us who have enjoyed our three years association, which has resulted in many happy and pleasant experiences. Yes, we eagerly accept the challenge the Senior Class President has placed before us and we hope that we, as a class, can justify your challenge. We sin- cerely believe that we can successfully carry on the work you, our predecessors, have started and advanced for the good of the school. I know that I speak for the Juniors when I wish Godspeed to all of you who depart tonight. St. Peter: When people get near me they seem very eager to tell me all the things they have accomplished and I can see -this group is no exception. SCI-IOLASTIC HISTORY The Class History, written and read by Betty Jo Walsh, Martha Falanga, Sally Gorman, Paul Westcott, and Clarence M-cComber: Once we started this history we realized what poor memories we have for other things besides school work. However, with the assistance of our classmates and teachers we have succeeded, we think, in collecting the high lights of our years in Oswego High School. Although we may not be the most outstanding class scholastically, we do have a large number graduating who are members of Owl's Head, the honor society of O. H. S. The two outstanding students are Nancy Graham, with an average of 933182, and Sally Brenner, with an average of 926818. We also congratulate the Seniors who obtained a 90 or above average. The class of '46 is very grateful to the teachers who have helped us through- out our four years and enabled us to graduate. We realize that the knowledge we have gained at Oswego High School will help prepare us as future citizens. -38- SENIORS MUSIC AND DRAMATIC HISTORY The talent of the class of 1946 may he placed primarily in the category of Lily Ilons rather than that of lithel llarrymore. llecause of the lack of a draniatics teacher during the war, few of our mem- bers had access to this phase of training. Despite this, however, one of our fellow- graduates, Kostia Zabotin, captured in l945 lirst prize in the city and county prize speaking contests sponsored by the American Legion. Also in several one-act plays the quality of our members' dramatics was especially noted. As for our musical history, many of the present graduates contributed their musical abilities to present some of the most highly praised shows ever presented in this high school. Most outstanding in this field was Betty Guilds who took part in many productions, and whose gift for singing brought joy to all. During the past year the Philomelians presented their lifth annual concert, and the lleta Mu Gamma gave their initial recital. Not to be forgotten is our ever improving high school band that is always ready to add their bit to the enter- tainment of the day. There are many Seniors who are members of these groups. The class of '46 will long remember all of these activities in connection with their high school days. A'I'HLliTlC HISTORY Great have been the events in the O.l'l.S. sports arenas since we, the class of "46" first set foot within the portals of this building. ln our Freshman year, llinny Comerford was our four-letter man with base- ball, basketball, football, and track. Witlell was doing the track running for that ear. y ln our Sophomore year, Comerford still helped us work up scores in football. lt was also in this year that the teams of our 'lunior and Senior years were getting their training. ' On the gridiron in our 'lunior year were lNlordaunt, Maxwell, Garlock, and Peters, tloating around with that little ball. llasketball brought us Tubby Mor- daunt, Father Maxwell, rlllllllllllivl' Garlock, Salty I'eters, and Nanny Alheri. Doc Peckham was there as manager to nurse the poor ball back to health after games and practice. llunishing the sawdust ball during baseball season were Altieri, Garlock, and Salisbury. Our cinder path burner of that year was Bill Peters. Of course, we left out one of our great football men of the year, in the personage of fhuck Lloyd, who is at present working for Uncle Sam. H -39. I i THE PARADOX SOCIAL HISTORY These social minded Seniors in view of the fact that their treasury was nearly exhausted, and that they would need plenty of money to sponsor the l'rom, set out in their 'Iunior year to raise their monetary fund. The tirst means of building a treasury was introduced by the collection of dues. Members who paid these wore ribbons during the week of the collection. Secondly, the class sponsored 21 bake sale which proved to be a great success. Feeling that they would still need more money, they sponsored a rummage sale. These both helped a great deal to elevate the figures. Now for something new. The class of '-lo inaugurated the "l're-Prom l lance" which was informal, and at which time the candidates for Prom Queen were announced. This procedure was followed by the class of '47, and probably will be for many years to come. Then came the highlight of all their school years. VVith an atmosphere of spring gaiety, they presented the class of l9-15 with what was said to be one of the best, the l'rom. The Senior year of this class, while not entirely inactive, was not so active as it was in its 'lunior year. They started off with the sale of felt emblems which moved a little too slowly to suit the class. To remedy this situation, they spon- sored another dance giving these emblems as favors. This dance proved to be as big a success as its former enterprises. ln leaving we can only wish the succeeding classes the success and fun that we have had as :1 class of Oswego High School. St. l'eter: l'll have to admit that these people are not very boastful: you know sometimes when l am forced to listen to the long dry accounts of what people have done with their lives, l feel like going on a strike. But then l remember that folks can't strike anymore-enot even in heaven. Paul VVestcott put an end to that in l950, remember, he atomized the two big l.abor leaders. Ah, 21 welcome interruption! Here we have some male musical talent. l really enjoy music, when the singers are so eager to perform: Song Title: 'fW'ho Knows." "Three for Jack'lASoloist, NVilliam Horan.

You were a stranger towering above usg You were a -castle for us to explore. Dared we dream beyond what we could see, While we stood outside the huge door? As we stared in wonder before us, We were met by friendly e es, Which welcomed us so kindly, It dazed us with surprise. Our foregone dreams of high school days, With these could not compare, The fellowship and tender ways, Of love could never wear. We've tramped your long dark hallways, With cares our farthest thought, We've climbed to heights from depths, Recalling lessons taught. This world now goes behind us, And we here firmly standg Facing the trouble ahead, Ready for Life's command. The paths are slyly curled here, Love and Hate are spies, In this uncertain world, Where destination lies. Where'er we chance to wander, Your memories with us go, To distant lands far yonder, Our love for you we'll show. Louise Girard Mr. Montague: Say, Mr. St. Peter, we've been sitting around here for years waiting to play. VVhen can we have our turn? Devil Song: Onesy, twosey, Peter's in Dutchsey. Threesey, foursey, play Montagsey, Fivesey, sixsey, lets' all listensey, To the Oswego Bandsey. Mr. Montague: The Oswego Band, by permission of the devil, will play: "The Little Rhapsody in Blue" by Gershwin. St. Peter: Now, lets' hear what the Fates prophesied for these people 54 years ago. The Class Prophecy, written and read by Betty Vickery, Emerson Hibbard, Jean O'Hrien, Betty Walker, and David Raudenbush: Here beginneth the Prophecy: This prophecy is old and stale by now but it was written way back in 1946, so what more could be expected? The Time-1970. Did you hear about the new explosive that Gus McComber accidentally dis- covered? Poor Mrs. McComber and the thirteen little McCom-bers. Louise Dowdle, the old maid about town, has ,been hopping out to Koka- monga in her new Bennett and Fragale helicopter. The main purpose of these jaunts is to patronize Iack's Juicy Hot-dog and Fish Stand. .41- THE PARADOX MacDonald's fish fries are superb, Eei, Eei, O. just one taste, you'll need Gram's Herbs.

U., and her friend, Betty Io Walsh, who is raising little rabbits. Jimmy Gilmour is studying late into the night to master the art of throwing the switch. He will soon assume the position of the late Charles Lloyd as head executioner at Sing-Sing. His first pleasure will be that of mutilating Paul West- cott, accused of candy-snatching from infants.

Now I shall not only hear them, but see them. "Song of Love," "Let's Dance," "Think on Me," by Philomelians. St. Peter rises and is about to leave the stage.

Whoever heard of my being interested in a man's worldly goods or what he did with them? You 'can't bring any of that stuff up here.

However, hard luck dogged the team, which thereafter was unable to win another game, losing five straight contests and being held score- less in three. lfulton won the return contest, staged at Otis Field, by an 18-6 score. Fred Kirkman, Heet halfback, was the star for the team on attack, scoring all six of Oswego's touchdowns during the season, Leo Maniccia added the other three points on place kicks after touchdowns. ln its seven games, Oswego tallied 39 points to 163 for its opponents.

One was the 38-34 decision over the powerful Manlius team and others were the triumphs over Vocational High of Syracuseg Rome Free Academy's tall team and the final home victory, scored over Fulton, 44-36, after the Blue and White's traditional rivals had compiled one of their most successful seasons in years. liob Sheldon, who was not held scoreless from the held in any of the 19 games, took scoring honors with 150 points, for an average of nearly eight points a game.
