Academy's '26 track team proved to be one of the pleasant surprises of the year.
Last year's track team had a very successful season, but due to the graduation of several
stars, it was supposed by the student body that a team of mediocre ability would represent
Academy on the cinder path this spring.
However, Coach Drake, with only six lettermen available, developed one of the best
track teams that ever wore the Blue and Gold. Work was started soon after the close of
the basketball season and a large number of likely candidates appeared. Two weeks of
indoor training and calisthenics helped greatly when the boys began in earnest in the
Although inclement weather hampered daily workouts, Drake with the assistance of
Coach Wright, soon had a well-balanced team ready for action. Many young and inex-
perienced fellows showed up well in the dashes, while several new weight men were
Academy received her first taste of competition in the Lakewood relays on May l.
Academy, according to "dope", was not considered important in this meet. Thirty-six
high schools of high calibre were entered. The Blue and Cold won two first places, two
seconds and two-thirds, taking First when Nelsen won the high jump. Academy placed
second in the 4-mile relay and third in the 3-mile relay.
On May 8 the team traveled to Pittsburgh to compete in the Carnegie Tech relays,
the largest scholastic track meet in the Tri-state district. Sixty-six high schools partici-
pated. Of these Academy finished seventh. Nelsen, Academy's captain and high jumper,
took second place in the high jump, equaling the high jump record at the Carnegie Tech,
and forcing the winner to break the record.
On May I5 Academy was the host of the "schoolboy Athletes" of Northwestern
Pennsylvania, district eight in the elimination for the State championship at Bucknell to
be held Saturday, May 22,
Academy won the district championship the fourth consecutive time, and by the larg-
est majority since the meet has been in competition.
Three records were broken in this meet, two of these by Academy men. Nelsen
broke the city high jump record, formerly held by Central, and Fuller broke the city pole
vault record, held by Heinlein, a former Gold and Blue star. Academy will send four
members of her track team to compete in the state championship at Bucknell. These
members are: Nlarvey Nelsen, high jump: Richard Speicher, 220 yard dash: Gilbert Spath.
220 yards low hurdles: and Stanley Fuller, pole vault.
May 29 Academy is scheduled to meet Lafayette of Buffalo, who are considered one
of the best track teams in the state of New York.
On june 4 the annual meet for the local high schools to contest for the city champion-
ship will be held.. The last two meets will be staged in the Athletic Field due to the
repair work being done on the stadium.

unior High Basketball
The Academy junior High Basketball team has come to the fore remarkably in the
last year. Last year the team Hnished the season at the bottom of the League with only
one victory to its credit. This year it has Finished second and has a number of victories.
The schedule was rather complicated, having a number of forfeitures from the vari-
ous teams which ithe team played. During the season the junior boys played the teams
from Lincoln Junior High, Roosevelt High, and East High schools. During the season
there were sixteen games played, five of which were forfeited to us because of- inelligi-
bility of the opponent's men.
We gained an ovelming victory on our home court when we played Gridley High.
The score was I6-6.
At the beginning of the season the team was not at all promising but it gradually
worked up to its present position: and the instructors hold high hopes for the boys when
they reach the stage where they can play on the varsity team.
Howard Stoneroach was high point 'man, having played in all the League games. He
had 60 points from baskets, I4 fouls making a total of 74 points. Milton Harding placed
second with a total of 57 points. He scored 44 from baskets, and I3 from fouls. Hard-
ing played in ll games. john Malthaner was third, playing in I5 games. His total is
53 points, 34 from baskets and I9 from fouls.
Arthur Wells, who 'become a student in the senior high school before the season was
over, deserves special mention for his fine playing. ' ,.

The season of i925-l926 was by far the most successful that any squad of natators
at Academy has ever had. Not only did we place second in the city swimming meets.
but we Won the city championship in water polo, a new sport introduced this season.
The first meet of the season was held at Cleveland with the University School of that
city. Unfortunately we were badly crippled for the meet, as our captain, Donald Parsons.
was ill, and several of the fellows who went up on the bus were detained. The final score
was 50-7 in favor of the opponents, Schauble and Flick being high scorers.
The next meet was held with Central in our pool and our lads made a favorable
showing against the city champs, losing by a score of 40-l2. Sola, a newcomer, showed
the way in scoring,
Then we took on East High, also in our pool, and turned them back to the tune of
36-23, Sola again featuring. lt was in this meet that our relay team, swimming 200
yeads made an Academy record.
Central again took us over at the Y. M. C. A. pool-43-I3. With such stars as
Cross, Huey, and Gillespie, Central was easily victorious, though our boys made a fine
showing, pushing every winner.
Eastil-ligh was beaten in the East pool by a score of 36-23. Although handicapped
by the larger pool, our fish won by large margins in each race. Thus we ended the city
series in second place.
The Alumni meet called out the largest crowd that ever attended a swimming meet
at Academy. With such formidable stars as Guerrin, Kavelage, and Fritz, the Alumni
presented an imposing line-up, but the students triumphed by a score of 40-9, and won
the water polo game held afterward.
Water polo, a game new to the high schools, was introduced this year, and at the
end of the regular season Central and Academy were tied for first place. This necessi-
tated three post-season games. Central took the first game by a score of 2-l, Flick scor-
ing for Academy. However. we turned around and won the deciding games both by a
score of I-0. Mink. a substitute, scored the winning goal in both games. This placed
the honor of being the first champs in water polo at Academy.
Coach john Kamora worked hard and faithfully, though he had to contend with the
illness of the captain and the absence of Schauble, who was unable to compete in any
but the first meet, due to an injured leg. The boys are very grateful to the coach for his

These precious high school years are to us all the rosy
season of life but so rapidly does time slip by that without a
tangible reminder we should soon forget our high school days.
ln an effort to keep them always with us, we, the class of
l926 present this, the sixth volume of the Academe, in which
we have endeavored to declare the true spirit of our last year.
If there are faults we ask you to remember that 'ito err
is humang to forgive divine." If the book merits praise we
only ask you to put it with your treasures.
We wish to thank the faculty, the students and the ofihce
force for their fine co-operation in producing what we hope will
be the usuper annual."

The next game was, lost to the Juniors by a score of I8-I l. After that the Seniors were
defeated, the score being I7-l4. ln the second game with the Freshmen, the Sophomores
held them to a lone field goal, the Hnal score resting at 28-2.
The juniors came back again, defeating the Sophomores l6-2. The Seniors next
avenged their former defeat by winning the second game C26-165 making it necessary to
play a third game. The final game of the season was the playoff between the Seniors and
the Sophomores. Two overtime periods were played in the game before the outcome
was finally settled at a score of I0-8, in favor of the Sophomores: this placed them second
in the interclass league.
The star performer of the Sophomore team was Sarah Getty, who was high scorer
with 68 points. Margaret Sullivan was second with 53 points. Both girls showed much
ability in the forward -positions.
Mildred Carlin and Margaret Hall as guards showed exceptional ability in holding
their opponents to 95 points for the entire season. Charlotte Seaver, center, showed
good form in getting the tipoff almost every time. Sophie Landberg and Erma Grace,
her running mate at side-center, aided materially in winning second place in the league.
With the entire team expecting to be back next year and with this year's experience
the Sophomores entertain high hopes of winning the championship in '27,

The Leaders' Class
The Leaders' Class is composed of the girls from the various physical education
classes, who do good work in class and are especially interested in health education.
Upper class members of the organization can be called upon to lead groups in games
and other physical activities. Practice periods come three times a week after school
hours. If a member of the class absents herself from practice three consecutive times
her name is dropped from the roll.
The Leaders' Class, under the direction of Miss Meyette, always takes a prominent
part in the gymnastic exhibition, which is given annually by the girls and boys from the
physical education departments. Tactics by the Leaders' Class was probably the most
attractive number on the last exhibition program. Other interesting 'features were "Men
of Valor," a dance given by the boys under Mr. Drake's supervision: apparatus work by
boys and girls: tumbling by the bays, and dances by the girls. The complete program was:
Men of Valor
Parallel Bars and Horse
Wand Drill Mazurka
Marionettes Tulip Time

Mr. C. L. Arnold
Mr. C. l... Arnold, the subject of this sketch, was born near the village of Dillsbury,
York County, on December 27, 1863. This town is noted as the birthplace of M. S. Quay,
who is said to be the greatest United States senator Pennsylvania has ever produced.
Mr. Arnold received his early education in the public schools of Yorl-1 County and
later attended summer sessions of County Normal Schools, which existed at that timeg
he also attended several summer sessions at the Millersville State Normal School. During
the winters of these years he taught school in the rural districts of York County.
ln l888 he entered Clarion Normal school and graduated from this institution in
I890. His teaching career as supervising principal of borough schools then began. l-le
spent ten years in this line of worl-z at the following places: Boiling Springs, Cumberland
County, one yearg Mount Joy, Lane County, five years: Hummelstown, Dauphin County,
The next two years he spent at Steelton, Dauphin County. as a ward principal,
For several years, Mr, Arnold had been contemplating and preparing himself for giving
up academic work, and taking up commercial work as a more remunerative and pleasant
field or work.
After preparing for this work at the International Business lnstitute of Newark, New
Jersey, and Drexel Institute, Philadelphia, Mr. Arnold was elected to a position at Greens-
burg and one at Erie at about the same time. l-le accepted the Erie position. This was
in the year l902, and he held it until February l, 1926, at which time he was compelled
to resign on account of ill health.

The Academe Popularity Contest
The i926 Academe Popularity Contest is the second of its kind to be held in
Academy. The First was a feature of the '25 Academe. This year the school has also
chosen the most popular boy in th'e school as well as the most popular girl.
From a group of five boys and five girls, previously nominated, the winners were
chosen by ballot, by the student body.
Louise Weschler, voted the most popular girl in Academy, has been an active and
well-known member of the class of '26 since it entered high school. Her charm and
personality have won for her a wide range of friends, as well as the title of most popular
girl. Besides her excellent academic work she has shown remarkable dramatic ability,
Clarence Meyer, voted the most popular boy in Academy, has been active along
athetic and dramatic lines. It is needless to say that he is well-lcnown and is a general
favorite. Perhaps the primary reason for his popularity is his happy, good-natured, easy-

In past years Academy has always turned out tennis teams of high calibre. Among
other victories our teams hold the scalps of East, Central, and Rayen High of Youngstown.
Our most outstanding triumph is that registered by Byron Baur's team over Cathedral
Latin High School of Cleveland. In this game the Latinites failed to win a match and
consequently went down to their first defeat in several years. Robert Whiting, an
Academy graduate, has offered a cup for this year, which is an added incentive for the
three local schools.
With several veterans remaining from last year's squad the Academy team has a
Fine chance of winning the championship. Not only are there several veterans back but
the new material is the most promising in years.
The squad started.worl-ting out in the Girls' gym, rather earlier than usual and will
go outside as soon as weather permits. No matches have been played as yet but Acade-
my is solidly behind its tennis team.
Alvin Schainer, the manager, has already arranged home and home games with
outside teams, besides the series for the city championship.
Altogether this year's representatives are about the livest outfit in years to carry
Academy's colors in tennis.

good music, and this year she has reached -the highest pinnacle of her appreciation,
Our four musical organizations are the best of their kind in the city. Under the
direction and careful leadership of Mr. W. S. Owen and Mr. M. Luvaas, we have come

The Girls' Chorus has been an outstanding feature of this year's social activities.
Sixty girls, clad in brilliant gold and blue costumes, have banded together in an effort
to heighten Academy's musical standards.
The Boys' Clee Club has been a source of satisfaction to the student body because
of the splendid work done this year. They, as well as the Girls' Chorus, have charmed
Our band and our orchestra deserve special mention because of the fine music they

The Academy High School Band, under the direction of Prof. W. S. Cwen, has be-
come an organization more worthy of sincere praise than any former Academy band.
The instrumentation has been increased until we have a band equipped with over sixty
pieces. The boys have made creditable appearance in concerts, and it was they who gave
our boys their inspiration on the gridiron, and on the basl-:etball court.
We hope the long-looked-for and coveted trip to Chicago, to compete for national
honors with other bands from all over America, will be realized this year. We are very
sure that our band is capable of winning laurels if it competes in the contest.

highly skilled musically than ever before. The instrumentation has been steadily in-
creased, and we now have an orchestra that can easily compete with the finest in the
city. The members have l-:ept before them the ideal of a symphonic orchestra and have
been benefitted therebyf

The Academy Girls' Chorus, under the efficient direction of Morten Luvaas, has
won even more praise this year than last.
Publiework during the year has consisted of concerts given for Erie business clubs,
and also, with the Boys' Clee Club, entertainments in different churches. A very enjoy-
able program was given at the First, Methodist Church of Union City. The girls will sing
at Chautauqua and Conneaut Lake later in the year.
This year's chorus, consisting of fifty-five voices with Charlotte Withrow as soloist
and Thelma Tate as accompanist, has risen to a position of musical achievement.
Our most sincere hope is that in the future, as in the past, the Girls' Chorus may
continue its active interest in musical work and so bring Academy the honor and fame
that is rightfully hers.

year, September, l925. Last year the club gained little recognition, but since reorganiz-

the Girls' Chorus for vocal supremacy.
It is a group of thirty boys who have banded together forthe purpose of cultivating
their voices as well as to furnish enjoyment and pleasure for their audiences.
The club has sung at several of the cityis most prominent civic clubs, and has re-
ceived favorable comment wherever it has gone, It accompanied the Girls' Chorus ,to
Union City, where the two organizations combined their forces to present a perfect musi-
The Lions', Rotary, and Kiwanis clubs have been entertained by this group of talented
male singers. '
Some of the churches of the city, as well as the civic clubs, have been favored with
the boys' singing, for they have sung at the First Baptist Church and the Glenwood U. B.
The club is planning to sing at Conneaut Lake Exposition Park on June 22.

This page is dedicated to Victor Patterson, Boys' Work Director of the Y. M. C. A.,
who is the benefactor and advisor of the Hi-Y Clubs of the three high schools: and to
Everett Zurn and the officers who have served under him.
The Hi-Y Club is an association of high school fellows, endeavoring to create, main-
tain, and extend throughout their school and community high standards of Christian
The platform is clean athletics, clean speech, clean habits, clean scholarship and con-
tagious Christian character.
When the club started out in 1925 it was composed of five members. During the
next few weeks, this number increased by two or three. The distribution of the Academy
Hi-Y Handbooks among the lower classes seemed to arouse interest so that just before the
Christmas vacation there were twelve members interested. Shortly after the beginning
of the year the first initiation was held and soon the club numbered twenty. The club
meets during the home room period every Wednesday to discuss live issues of interest to
every high school fellow. lr has been favored immensely during the last year by having
the ablest speakers talk on interesting topics.
During the year one second degree was adminsitered to members of each club of
the three high schools. The Academy members who tool: the degree are distinguished
by the sweaters they wear.
The oflicers elected for the coming year are as follows:
Vice President-Linson Jennings.
The activities of the year were concluded at a Mothers' Night Banquet, in the dining
room of the Boston Store on May 4.
The banquet was a huge success and was a most fitting conclusion for a successful
year. The installation of the ofhcers previously mentioned took place at this gathering.

Following the good example set by the Journalism class of last year, the class of
l925-26 settled right down to work, under the instruction of Mr. C. C. Radder, and has
produced good results, such as the "Academy Starz" especially the "Boost Erie" edition,
the "Radder Press," and many "stories" for the daily papers.
The class First won honor last fall by placing William Getty, editor-in-chief of the
i'Star," in the position of editor-in-chief of the "Kids' Edition" of the Erie Daily Times.,
Also by placing on the staff of that edition Louis C-ersman, writing the "What D'ye Known
column of Tom Sterrett, and Rose Gawiser, reporting.
The "Star," which is now issued monthly by the class, has been enlarged and made
much better than that of last year in the hands of the following staff: William C-etty.
editor-in-chief, Harlan Lancaster, sports editor: John C-rasberger, circulation manager,
and Martha McMahon, advertising manager.
The "Boost Eriei' edition of the "Star," which was circulated throughout the city
and far beyond, won Commendation wherever it went.
'Storiesn for both Erie newspapers were written by all the members of the class, and
Academy has been represented very frequently on the Times School Page by the writ-

Great hopes are held for the journalism class of next year, now Journalism l, which
will soon take over the "Star" and other projects which this year's class has success-

Although Le Cercle Francaise is still in its infancy, it is fast becoming one of the
social lights of the school.
The club, which consists of students who have had a year or more of French, was
formed to stimulate interest in French by studying French music and literature.
The club's First social event was held on December Z0 in the form of a Christmas
party. At this party, the club entertained the other French students ot the school. A
very interesting program consisting of a talk on French music, a piano selection and a
short playlet in French was given. At the conclusion of the playlet, presents were taken
from the brilliantly-lighted tree and distributed among the members, and their guests.
ln February, a membership campaign was held which swelled the club's ranks,
About the middle of March, the Club sponsored a cinema entertainment in the audi-
torium, admission five cents. Our treasury increased noticably.
The meetings of the Club have been very interesting because of the splendid material
from which they have to choose. Par exemple, Academy's prima donna, Charlotte With-
:ow: lsabel Glass, an accomplished speaker, Everett Zurn, who made his very successful
debut in "Agatha's Auntng Anne and David Cold, accomplished actors: and many other

Arrangements are also being made for the framing of several pictures which will be
left in the French Room.
Although this is the clubis first year it has made, with the guidance of its advisor, a
fairly good start toward becoming a success.

Rusterholtz, it is charged, was
driving out Sixteenth street between
Sassafras and Myrtle, at a breakneck
pace when spotted by Heintzel, who
immediately gave chase. After a
long, exciting race, Rusterholtz was
caught and finally induced by Heint-
zel to tell the judge about it.
I-Ie was released on 5c bail byf
judge Brown and will appear for
trial some time in the future.
NEW REDUCING FORMULA
Gerry Sweet. noted chemist, has
completed a formula for reducing.
Mr, Sweet has always been burdened
with weight but now after using his
famous anti-fat remedy, he is but
a shadow of his former self.
When he attended Academy High
school he balanced the scales at four
hundred net, but now he weighs only
two hundred and ninety-nine.
Mr. Sweet's formula is this:
Run ten miles every day,
Work at all times, never
Eat no fat, but lots of lean,
Stick your head in water
to reduce your bean.

The stock included two bushels of

bankrupt condition has developed, it

especially marked since Leo Mc-
Mahon, former classmate of the two
partners, moved into the neighbor-
hood five years ago.

The National Congress of Parents and Teachers, chartered under the laws of the
District of Columbia, is a volunteer organization actively engaged in certain special
lines of educational work. All those interested in its objects may become members.
On February I7, 1897, the Parent-Teachers' Association was organized under the
name of the National Congress of Mothers by a group of women led by Mrs. Theodore
W. Burney and Mrs. Phoebe A. Hearst.
Prominent men, including Theodore Roosevelt, were proud to accept places on the
Advisory Council. Within a decade Mrs. Burney's .Beautiful Dream," regarded by
many at first as Utopian, beyond hope of realization, had been outrun and the National
Congress of Mothers had become a powerful influence throughout America.

A debating class under the able direction of Miss Laura Cramp, was organized at
Academy in February, 1926. From a group of thirteen students two teams af three
speakers each were chosen,
A triangular debate was held April I4, Academy, East and Central participating.
Our af'Hrmative met East's negative at East and our negative met Central's affirmative at
Academy. It was the first debate for either of our teams and in both instances we were
pitted against teams of two years' standing. We lost the decisions, but had the satisfac-
tion of knowing that both opposing teams were obliged to extend themselves to the limit
Plans are being made for a debating class at the beginning of the coming year and a
brilliant and successful season is anticipated.

HVEANGEANCE IS MINE"
By Kenneth Schauble
One night of quite recent date, I was sitting in my study in a rather satanic, if I
may so express myself, mood. I had just finished perusing an ancient, moldy, crumbling
copy of a tome on Black Magic by a long-forgotten monk, who, it seems, was called Per
Dantus. Manifestations, exorcisms, spells, transmutations, all were discussed in complete
if somewhat stilted language.
The book was absorbing to say the least, and my mood was very propitious, for it
was but a scant two days since my wife had taken French leave, bearing with her my
child of two years and my happiness, which she had hithehto held in the hollow of her
adorable hand. Search was unavailing. No trace had been found and they had vanished
into thin air as a wreath of smoke from a dreamer's pipe, and left me broken, embittered,
at outs with the world.
I had just relapsed into a brown study during which my thoughts were a shame to
humanity. I was devising ways and means to be revenged on all mankind. I could pic-
ture myself an avenging demon, smiting whomsoever and wherever I pleased, all with the
aid of a seemingly insignificant book.
A savage joy took hold of me. I rose, l felt inclined to shout to all Creation "Bow
down, you fooIs.' An insane desire to prove my power, to grind, to crush, to cause pain
wherever I wished, possessed me. I strode up and down the room with a short, sharp
cries and gutteral mutteringsg a fiend incarnate. I mouthed irzanely, gasped, choked,
fought for air, wrung my hands, with all the bestiality within me surging to the fore.
With a sudden muffled curse I seized the book, turned the pages feverishly, madly, reck-
lessly, paying no heed to the imminent danger of forever destroying the aged volume.
And then I stopped. I was in a quandry, for I knew not what form of retribution to
take. Should I, by some mysterious 'formula or incantation, cause sudden storms, floods,
an inundation of the world? Should fire be the destroying instrument, or should virulent
plagues, loathsome diseases wreck havoc and desolation on an unsuspecting Earth?
But stay! Might not such means place my life in jeopardy as well? I was but human
and shrank from such a method. It was no part of my plans that any hurt should come
just when it seemed my schemings must go up in smoke, I happened upon an idea
that took my breath away, so simpleit seemed. It was slow in comparison with the others
but infinitely more satisfying to my lust for blood, Blood BLOOD. The ingenuity of Per
Dantus would serve me well after all. I recalled that in the middle of the book was a dis-
sertation on the art of rendering oneself invisible. Into what places was it not' possible to
penetrate in the guise of thin air? The most secret, hidden nooks woud be easily ac-
cessible to one who could don the cloak of invisibility when he so desired. I-lad I but
known the effects, invisibility would have been my last resort, but my sense of bitterness
was stronger than any sense of caution, and I boldly prepared the preliminary steps to
secure the desired results.
The directions called for several potent drugs that were rather difhcult to obtain.
I-Iowever, I had small quantities of them all, with the single exception ef one that was
singularly effercescent in solution, namely mytoplin. Cast about as I would, no solu-
tion of this puzzle met my brain until I bethought be of an old chest of medicines that
belonged to my father and had descended to me at his death. Perchance this rare powder
might be found in it, for my father had a monomania for the collection of rare and curious
mQ nI"'Ti ull:1 ..., ' """"'lIl""f llllll "Ili,f1l41lJ11"'lII llllwllh
With frenzied haste, for the night was wearing away, I rushed to the attic, rescued
the chest from the obscure corner in which it reposed, and carried it to the study. A
hurried yet thorough search revealed no sight of the drug and l was in despair. It seeemd
that an indefinite postponement was the best I could do. Finally in desperation, l de-
cided to use another of similar effervescent qualities. l quickly measured the ingredients
of the potion, stirred them vigorously and quaffecl it at one gulp.
A racking, tearing pain shot thru me, and a mighty flame enwrapped and consumed
my body. l felt as if l were in the grasp of giant hands: and terrible, disgusting voices
rang in my ears. The light grew dim, Hickered uncertainly. A fear, as if all the fiends
of Hell stood taunting, hung over me like a cloud. Beads of sweat rolled down my face,
and a palsy seemed to attack me.
Gradually the mists began to clear from by brain, and l rushed to the mirror and
gazed intently, but to all appearances the room was empty. I was invisible even to
Ar the thought of the vast power the black arts had given me, a giddy sense of un-
reality came over me, but I forced it down and took stock of my position. The power of
the draught was so tremendous that any article l touched immediately assumed the
minus quality of my own body, tho this phase of the experiment wore off after a while.
Part of the decoction had previously been rubbed on my apparel and thus my disappear-
ance was complete.
Extinguishing the light, l groped my way out of the house and headed for the down-
town section of the city. It was in my mind to test my disguise to the utmost. If l could
walk thru the crowds of the roof-garden and dance-halls without being seen, then indeed
could l expect vengeance in full. The first stop was at an all night cabaret. I sauntered
into the lobby, looked around, but caused no attention from the obsequious head waiter
nor the Hippant young woman at the ticket window. l passed the doortender but saw no
flicker of interest or change of expression on his face. I waved my hand and arm back
and forth only five feet from him but with no results. l was safely from the sight of man.
My exultation at the success of the venture was difficult to control. I felt like shout-
ing, dancing, anything to express my mad, terrible joy. l rushed wildly homeward, un-
seen, unnoticed, Hew to my room and gave vent to my emotions. Peal after peal of
clemonical laughter rolled from my lips. l was insane with derision of a world within my
grasp. No power on earth could curb me now, for l had the bit between my teeth and
was careening onward, God alone knew whither.
Slowly my frenzy subsided and l decided to return to visibility. Further destructive
plans could wait for the future. for Time was mine, all thru the learning of Per Dantus,
who little though, perhaps, that it would be put to such use when he recorded it on the
old parchment, then new and crackling, now worn, soft and pliable.
Dawn crept showly thru the chinks of the closed shutters and warned me that day
and day's activities were near. For some unknown, probably psychological reason, a
vague, goomy, forboding crept over me, and l prepared the antidote to Per Dantus' pre-
scription under a harrowing apprehension that lay like a pall over me. l seized it, gulped
it down and waited for the same painful experience, but nothing happened. I rushed to
the mirror but no sign of my presence moved in its clear surface. l cursed the monkish
fool for his false pratings, ranted, raved frantically, and then realibzation came like a Hash.
Due to the substitute for Amytoplin. which was not acted upon by the antidote, l was
doomed for the span of mv life. to walk the world, apart from men, companionship, all,
all, but revenge, FOREVER INVISIBLE.

ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL
December 16, 1925
Miss Harriet Merritt,
Editor-in-Chief of the Academe
Academy High School
My dear Miss Merritt:
The progress which your staff has made in plan-
ning the 1926 Academe and the promptness with which
these plans have been carried out to date are com-
mendable indeed. This, of course, is a tribute to
the Editor-in-Chief, Business Manager and the Fac-
ulty Advisers. I am sure that, with the present
leadership, the plans will continue to materialize
promptly'until the book is completed and distributed.
The responsibility of the Academe Staff this
year is slightly different from that of previous
staffs. For the first time the faculty has taken
a definate part in choosing the Editor-in-Chief and
the Business Manager. Not only does this make the
staff more responsible to the faculty but creates
an interesting question as to whether or not a
staff so chosen will produce a better volume than
one selected by the method formerly used. As your
plans have materialized so far, I believe that this
year's Academe will justify the change.
Tradition now dictates the entire completion of
all matters in connection with this publication
by commencement time. It is not necessary to re-
mind you of this fact, I know. You and the Bus-
iness Manager were chosen because you have a record
of carrying things through to completion in due
time. The Academe will be no exception, I am sure.
In closing may I extend you congratulations on
your success to date in choosing your staff and in
maturing your plans. I trust that the harmony
which has been characteristic of the staff under
your leadership will continue and that the 1926
Academe will be superior to any yet published.
Most sincerely yours,
up 1 .....-..-,.. 1-11 .1,... 1 1,,..,,,,,-,1,,1,,,i.,,,,,-, 1 11,-, 4.

The President became more
and more interested as he went
over the pages, which showed
regular deposits over a period
of three years.
When asked why he chose

, I PI lg ANKIND, with ignorance of the darkened future, has
always been careful to keep contact with its past.
When the luxurious tombs of the Pharaohs were being
1 :W A if l I
hewn from the solid rocks of the Nile Valley, there
developed in Central America a civilization with a
high culture that went down under the heavy tread of the Spanish
conquistadors. This people, on its feast years, erected stone
memorials, cut with tools of stone, to keep a record of its social
progress. Within recent years many of these tablets have been
unearthed and their messages deciphered.
Only the Mayan rulers and priests could keep such a diary,
and there was only one copy for the use of all. ln this present
day and age, millions of people keep a running story of their past
-and there are millions of diary books for them to use. The one
diary cut laboriously in stone has given way to millions made
possible by generous quantities of paper.

And we'll work and fight for her faim,
And we'll serve a right in the worlcl's big fig
We will ever uphold her name:
For her sturdy sons are so valiant,
And her maidens so kind and true,

We will strive to raise her colors,

The June Senior Class History
Four years ago we, the Senior Class, started our career as makers of Academy
history, as cheerful, carefree, and noisy a group of Freshmen as ever entered the school.
We took for our motto, "Watch Us Crow," and although Academy could hardly hold us
then, we lived up to that motto by gathering more students, more chums, and more
As we neared our Sophomore year we became less sure, less bold, and more serious.
Once in that enviable class we "Lived to Learn," as the old saying goes, and it was then
that we began to realize what school life really means and we showed our appreciation
of it in our fine work, our co-operation with the other classes, and in our work in the
organizations. For who played the best instruments in the orchestra and the band if not
the Sophomores? Who attended, upheld, and managed the Science and the Latin and
Clio clubs, and the active Leaders' Class but the Sophomores? We were indeed ready and
prepared for the next step upward.
Another year found us nearer to the "privileged class," and we put forth a mighty
effort to merit the honor that would soon be ours. Our fellows gained recognition on the
gridiron, the track, and in the pool: our girls gave their time and talent to musical lines
and to the commercial work The Girls' Chorus gained fame and recognation every-
where. The chorus was made up largely of juniors. It was at this time, too, that the
"Smile Club" was started, and many smiling Juniors at once ioined to make this organ-
ization a success. lt was the juniors also who carried away the shorthand honors in the
Inter-county contest. We appeared but once socially, at the Junior-Senior Prom, but we
were "new at the game" and felt we could afford to wait until our Senior year when
social activities and good times go hand in hand with difficult academic work.
We left school that term feeling as if we had accomplished a great deal.
ln due time we were justly rewarded, and it was with the greatest dignity that we
assumed the long-looked-for title of Seniors. Here we were successful in sports, music
and scholarship. True, our ranks had decreased noticeably but the spirit of '26 flour-
ished still. True to our motto, we had grown surprisingly in four short years,
The main social event of the year was an informal get-to-gether party. This party
was one of the most largely atended gatherings that any senior class has ever sponsored.
The aim of the party was to get the members of the class beter acquainted and after a
very clever form of introductions, a series of old foshioned games were played. The
Boys' C-lee Club furnished several delightful selections, and the evening ended when the
refreshments had been srved. Financially and socially, the affair was a pronounced
When we won the Princeton Alumni Trophy cup: when we gained water-polo

Fred has a morbid propensity for weddings, newspapers

She is one of our journalistic students, and happy and
prosperous will be the newspaper who finds her on its staff.
She is the original go-getter: she is out for big game and
nothing will stop her. That is the spirit! Success is only

Gives to the greatest and smallest, no difference he shows.
Thus dreams follow after, nor care where he goes.
Thus, dear ones, remember that the rich or poor,
Humble or lofty, penniless, starving or weak,
That nothing, no nothing, makes Happiness sure,
Save kindness, sweet kindness, both early and late.
Kindness, the beacon that flares on the hill,
And guides folks thru darkness to havens quite still.

THE RIVER AT NIGHT
Oh! the river in the night,
When the sun is out of sight,
With its rambling, roaring, rolling,
Till it sets my ears a-ringing,
Like the whippoorwill a-singing.
With its washing, dashing, splashing,
Till it fills my heart with passion:
Sets one's 'heart to solemn thinking,
Sets the poet's heart a-singing.
Seems to set one's heart repenting,
Seems to set one's soul repenting,
Then the river seems to soften,
Then as silent as a coffin,
Off one floats to dreamland.
But the river onward sweeps,
For it cannot wait for sleep.
Oh, what do we learn as we go through life
As the bright days dawn and die,
And the years bring rest or the years bring strife
And youth's rainbow dreams pass by?
Some follow the marsh lights of pleasure afar,
Or the bubbles of wealth drifting past,
The secrets of nature some seek to unbar
Or explore truth's ocean so vast.
Life's purpose is lost and its wisdom is vain,
And vain falls the light from above.
And hopes fade away at the end of the lane
lf we have not learned to love!

The juniors opened the season at top speed with a football dance in the girls' gym,
after the Academy-Tonawanda game. The gym was brilliantly decorated with our colors,
blue and gold, and Brown's lsle of Pines orchestra furnished the snappy music.
On February Sth. at Kahkwa Park lnn, the Junior class held the annual junior-
Senior Prom. There were beautiful decorations and clever favors. The Alpha Gamma
Dictators furnished the music and all in all the Prom proved a great success.
The junior boys represented us well in football, basketball, and track. ln dramatics,
music and debating we also demonstrated our ability.
All through the year the entire class has been behind activities and ready to help
at any time. This assures us of having the Best Class ever next year.
We are sure that as Seniors we shall uphold, in every way, the honors of our school.

ln introducing athletics at Academy for the years l925 and l926 we can
truly say that we have i'Fought a good fight" and for the most part we have
been victorious. We have taken our motto of "Carry On" to the gridiron,
track, court and the pool and above all Academy has cherished the highest
standard of good sportsmanship.
Our football season will stand out boldly in high relief in the annals of
Academy, for in that season the long-contested Princeton Alumni Cup became
ours forever. The Cup is ours by right of hard-won victories for three con-
secutive years. Our football team is, indeed, Worthy of sincere commenda-
tiong the students also are to be commended for their enthusiastic support.
Our basketball team served faithfully and although we failed to reach
our goal of city champions, we have gained valuable experience, and we hope
for victory next year.
Track was not abandoned as We feared it might be, but was ushered in
with the spring with as much enthusiasm and victory as ever. Although the
season is not finished yet the team bids fair to retain its title of city champs.
The swimming and water polo teams deserve special mention for their
fine Work in gaining for Academy the first water polo championship.
The girls' basketball teams, swimming team and the Leaders' Class are
unique groups of girls which have attracted considerable attention because
of their unexpected progress.
To lVlr. l... C. Drake, lVlr. lVl. V. Wright, lVliss Edith lVleyette and Mr. Jack
Komora is due the praise for our achievements in athletics.
ln closing We wish to give the school's approval and sincere praise. Our
boy and girl athletes have, indeed, Ucarried on till the stars have gone."

Academy's football team opened its season at Kane on September l9, with a l3-0
victory over the mountain town's combination. The team came through without an in-
jury: probably due to their superb condition gained at the fall camp before the opening
of school in September. With this auspicious start it was hoped that Academy was
launched into her best season of gridiron sport.
Lady Luck was not with Academy when we played the strong Lakewood team on
their field in Ohio. Lakewood defeated us by a score of l9-6. Captain johnny scored
the only touchdown for us, which was the first touchdown scored against the Lakewood
City champions in the past two years. l.Jater in the season the game was forfeited to us
because of the ineligibility of one of their men. We declined the forfeiture.
On October third Academy High gridders made a most spectacular home stand by
uwallopingn Nleadville before a large and colorful audience. The game was held at the
Athletic Field. The score was 23-2. A break in the Final quarter allowed the Meadville
team to score its only two points of the game. It was a brilliant game and kept the crowd
of spectators in continual suspense. Coach Dralce's machine worked in splendid fashion,
gaining ground through the line, and around end in the first half, and resorting to a sharp
aerial attack in the second session.
On October tenth the celebrated Steam Rollers, otherwise known as Massillon High
School, invaded our town, followed by a contingent of loyal rooters. and won only in the
last minutes of the game by a score of I7-IO. lt seemed that Fate was called to take a
hand, but it was no dishonor to lose to a team like Massillon, especially so, when we recall
how narrowly it was won.
Our boys rested the 'following Saturday, but resumed their work on October 24,
when they emerged on the long end of a I4-0 score. ln this game we "ran away" with
our opponents, North Tonawanda. This team, prior to its game here had not been de-
feated cluring the season. lt will be admitted that our group of pigskin heroes was vastly
superior to the visitors. Although Hostettler was submerged in a sea of mud and Water,
he came through with his usual two points after a touchdown.

When the day of October 3I dawned upon Erie, hundreds of students and eager
grown-ups awoke with one thought foremost in their minds: who would win the game?
East High had a good team but so had Academy: both sides possessed that grim fighting
spirit which is so nobly put forth in high school youths. Moreover, East's rooters seemed
to be in possession of a large portion of that confidence which points toward victory.
he game itself was a real treat, and was marked by frequent gains, losses, and penalties
which made the blood tingle in the veins of the spectators. The pinnacle of excitement
was reached when "Pat" Goodman registered a touchdown after the pigskin was blocked
by "Pete" Rumbol. This bitter 6-0 defeat has been indellibly written in our opponents
history and only time is capable of erasing it.
On November 7 we played Tonawancla on our home field and got the short end of
the score, l2-6. Tonawanda labored under the impression that our team was a group
of gridders not difficult to conquer but our fighting mein and good playing convinced them
that they were very wrong. Hubman was the sensation of the Lumberjacks. He made
two touchdowns, one from a long pass and the other by a 65-yard run, Then it was
that Academy showed she was efficient. Fuller made a 60-yard run down the mud-
soaked field, slipped like an eel between two Tonawanda tackles and crossed the line.
This was the only touchdown that was made for Academy that day.
November I4 Academy took a long and tiresome journey to Dayton, Ohio, to play
the strong State High of that city., Newspaper dope put Academy on the short end once
more, but when the smoke of the battle had cleared away Academy was found to have
come through on top, giving the opponents the small part of a l7-0 score. Academy won
that game because she was at her height physically, and because she played a school who
was ignorant of her ability. Bill Erheart was quite seriously injured and was taken to
the hospital during the course of the game.
Thanksgiving morning dawned Ubrite and fair." The shining sun transformed the
field that had been covered with snow into a sea of ice-cold mud. Both schools were
represented by rooters in vast numbers. The Red and Black, and the Gold and Blue were
bitter enemies. The Academicians and the Centralites were hostile camps.
Like most athletic meets, the game was spectacular. The bands with their stirring
marches sent thrills into the hearts of the loyal supporters of the two schools.
A perfectly-timed kick from the right foot of sorrel-'topped Hostettler in the opening
moments of the play decided the margin of victory by which Academy defeated Central
in the Stadium. We won by a score of 3-0.
It was a particularly brilliant and animated group of Academy students that left the
Stadium that evening. We were the victors: we had exhibited our strength: the cup was
So the season finished and we are proud of it. We have set a standard for good
sportsmanship and endurance for other years to follow. May teams-to-come bear in
mind that on the gridiron Academy stands for "Carry On."

Ar the call of the '26 Basketball season Coach L. C. Drake, mentor at the Hill School,
found his material to be inexperienced, with a very hard schedule to follow.
ln the first game Academy defeated the Demolay by a score of 37-I2. The Blue and
Gold players had such a tight defense, that the Demolay failed to score during the first
The second game saw the strong Alumni bow to defeat by a score of 32-l0.
The third and fourth games Academy played in Cleveland, where she defeated
Cathedral Latin, Catholic champs of Ohio, by a score of 21-IS. The next night we lost
to the fast Lakewood champs of Ohio by a score of 29-l8.
On january I5 Academy went to Buffalo, where we met the champions of New
York State in the strong Lafayette team. We were defeated by this team by a score of
33-l7. However, on the return game, it took this mighty aggregation three overtime
periods to hand the Blue and Gold a 24-2l beating,
This was our first defeat on our home floor. Hutchinson High, also of Buffalo, came
to Erie on january 22 and proved to be the fastest team ever to meet an Academy team.
Academy showed herself to be in top form and handed the Hutchinson team an unex-
pected defeat by a score of 24-Zl.
