EX ' § LIB MS iif iMir it iiMri )» iMir ii« ii: ri 3arHwuth 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. In an effort to keep them always with us, we, the class of 1926 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 " to err is human; 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 office force for their fine co-operation in producing w hat we hope will be the " super annual. " THE EDITOR. i itrattnn The class of 1 926 dedicates this volume of the ACADEME to LOWELL C. DRAKE In gratitude for keeping the Gold and Blue waving on high, for upholding our honor and for inspiring us physically and morally, we dedicate this volume with the sincerest hope that in years to come he will reveal to our successors the same fine spirit that he has revealed to us. ,JII .mm IIL . - w LOWELL C.

McNARY A PRINCIPAL ' S OFFICE ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL ERIE. PA. December 16, 1925 Miss Harriet Merritt, Editor-in-Chief of the Academe Academy High School Erie, Pa. 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 succeBS 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. ur? .

The number of students who were graduated was double that of the previous year. This class was fully organized having for officers: Elmer Hostettler, President; Jean Stewart, Secretary; and Walter Lancaster, Treasurer. The commencement speakers were: Elm=r Hostettler, Edna Branch, William Miller and Jean Stewart. The commencement exercises were held on the evening of January 29, 1926. Erwin Adams Elsie Adier Edward Altsman Mildred Bauman Edward Bernhard Edna Branch Leo Brennan Vance Brooks Milton Brown Cecilia Burch Jeanette Causgrove Clara Cimino Charles Cowley Merle Crowell Margaret Dankworth Dorothy Davenport Leonard Eliasson William Frame Nathan Cabin Blanche Gifford Carl Goetz Anna Gold PriciUa Hippelli Elmer Hostettler Gustav Jerge Walter Lancaster Bennie Levic Fred Morris William Nuber Donald Powers Mercedes Quinn Dwight Robinson Jessie Rosen Sylvia Saft Ruth Seachrist Merle Schuster Erma Stewart Jean Stewart Frances Stoddart Josephine Stoltze Agnes Storz C. Gerry Sweet Louis Tannenbaum Harold Turner Kimber Vought Alma Wehn Marion Werle Estelle Weschler Alberta Wetherbe Robert Wheler « , ERWIN ADAMS Erwin hailed from Lincoln a couple of years ago, where, it was foretold that he would make good. During his stay at Academy he has not disproven the prophecy. If you have not had the pleasure of knowing Erwin, get acquainted. There is always room for one more link in the chain of his friends. ELSIE ADLER Pretty " Kisses " how can we, Ever bear to part with thee? You whose smiling face has made Hearts of brass turn soft and fade. Can ' t you stay and be a jewel Longer in our fine big school? EDWARD ALTSMAN Eddie has never set the river afire while at Academy but he is always ready to be a friend. Always good natured and always working. MILDRED BAUMAN Mildred is one of our quiet little girls who graduated in February. She may be quiet in school but — I Putting all joking aside, she is a good sport and a good student. EDWARD BERNH.ARD Eddie displays a marked interest in the ice business! Just why he chose that line of work we do not knov . Ice does not affect him apparently, for he is always warm and jovial and friendly despite his cold profession. EDN.A BRANCH H r voice is glad with silvery song. Her mind is free from care, Go where you will in ten miles ' round. You ' ll find none so good and fair! There is always room at the top — for top-notcher 20 LEO BRENNAN " He is awfully quiet but he is awfully nice. " Where ould we find a better description of the reputation he has reated while he was with us? VANCE BROOKS very road into his kindness ind and cannot " You know the lose the way. " Vance is a fine fellow and worthy of our highest praise. He is a perpetual surprise even to those who know him best. Surely he can do nothing but succeed. MILTON BROWN In the classroom, on the gridiron, or anywhere, Brownie :vea!s a marked capacity for perfection. We hope that he ill attain as great success as his oratorical ability indi- ites. This youthful elocutionist has held our vast assembly ve struck. Just recall that scientific demonstration. CECILIA BURCH Cecilia is the very essence of intelligence and understand- ing " . When the poet sang of " raven locks " and " cherry cheeks " he must have had Cecilia in mind. JEANETTE CAUSGROVE Jeanette is making her life as perfect as she can. By lit- tle words and deeds she has branded herself a real girl and an honest friend. She has been submerged in the sea of many subjects, but she has always come up smiling with a free hand to help us. CLARA CIMINO Clara is known as quite a seamstress, being one of the girls w ho designed and made their own graduation dress. Although she has been very, very quiet during the last four years w e have found that she has been storing knowledge, domestic and otherw ise for future use. ' Don ' t get peevish; get busy. " 21 p; iMir II i ii m III =»iic y Those in the CHARLES COWLEY ' You hear that boy laughing? You think he ' s all fun? But the angels laugh, too, at the good he has done. " Chowie ' s radiant wit is the life of the party. Besides his enviable title of school jester, he boasts that his earthly ex- istence is much less than any of his fellow class-men. Figure it out. MERLE CROWELL Merle, a quiet unassuming senior, is destined to become the manager of one of Erie ' s leading theatres. Nevertheless this achievement will not hinder him in his quest for knowl- edge for Merle plans to attend Penn State in the near future. MARGARET DANKWORTH Has Peggy become a geologist? Her interest in certain " brooks " would tend to prove the affirmative. Whoever saw her eyes flash without being prepared for a change in the atmosphere? We have enjoyed knowing you, Margaret. Good luck! DOROTHY DAVENPORT " Life is what you make it ' is the adage Dot believes in and it has proven true. Whenever you see her she is in that adorable realm of cheery excitement. Her friendly manners have made this little happy-go-lucky lady one of the most loved of the senior class. LEONARD ELIASSON Although Leonard has graduated he is still Academy ' s " bronze boy. " Evidently he cherishes hopes of becoming a linguist as he " tells the world " in three languages. The boys it Oberlin will not know what he is talking about. WILLIAM FRAME Bill was one of the stars, the very bright stars on our foot- ball squad. He is the kind of football hero the girls dream of. The kind that is really handsome under the layers of mud and togs. sldoni get a helping hand. 22 ir-iMr:!;iii ii iMiii= B NATHAN CABIN Nate is Demie s main worry because he loves to stage little tricks that invariably land him in the office. But then, famous men are sometimes a bit eccentric, and Nate is that without a doubt. BLANCHE GIFFORD Blanche seems to be one of those " quiet " girls but from what we can gather she has so many other virtues that her friends quite forget this trait. Her studies receive her best efforts and that is more than most of us have to our credit. CARL GOETZ Carl ' s fondest ambition is to become a pro-golfer and at his present rate of speed we feel certain- that his success is doubly assured. If there is a book in town that he has not read it is not published yet. ANNA GOLD As bright and shining as her name, full of fun and a good sport. We are not sure that she is an advertising agent for some Paris cloak house but she is, to us, a living example of the word " style. " PRISCILLA GUCKES Here is a maiden, coy and shy. Who is brilliant, we know, for her marks are so high. She ranks with the best. Has time for a jest, You ask why we like her? That ' s why! MAGDALEN HIPPELLl " Madalen, Madalen, tell us truly, Why are you so shy? " The pansy is bashful, yet loves life ' s glory, Madalen answers, " So do 1!

He has advanced far ir maze of athletics, and his viking blood and courage ha us to admire him for the athlete that he is. GUSTAV JERGE and he Gus enjoys the social side that school life offers, also delights in absenting himself from class on various oc- casions for no specified reason. He loyally supported our athletics and other divisions of the school. We wish him luck! WALTER LANCASTER ••He is wealthy in his friends. " As our manager of the track team for the season of 1925. Walter proved himself perfectly capable; and terminated a successful series of meets. Not only this, but he has also bound many of our hearts in loyal friendship. He left us in February and intends to study at Slippery Rock Normal, BENNIE LEVICK Bennie intends to some day become the confidential secre- tary of a famous man and perhaps he will be an accountant, too. Those accounts will be good ones for he is rated as a wizard at the work. WILLIAM MILLER ••If there be a devil in a man there is an angel too. " Honor came to Bill as Commencement Speaker and he ha; roven his superior mentality. The drums proclaim his usicl ability. He ••percolates " a speedy Hup. A social, ental and physical ideal, to be sure! FRED MORRIS ademy will not forget a boy like Fred. No student has ne acquainted with him without being impressed by his mination. He is a fellow worthy of our highest praise J to be commended for his grit. His motto must have a A( beco: deter and i ••push in it day brings sunshine to th ; umbr 24 and the farmer. yjaf I wr I ■ ii m iii =m WILLIAM NUBER We thought him quite a youngster until recently when he suddenly grew up and became very much of a dignified Senior. We do not know his intentions after he leaves Academy, but we shall not be astonished if becomes famous. MERCEDES QUINN Mercedes is a jolly good natured companion whose ready sympathy and understanding is much appreciated by her classmates. She is usually bubbling with fun and enthusiasm which make her a bewitching pal. DWIGHT ROBINSON He is a true friend In every sense of the word, and his friendship is sought by all who come in contact with him. Dwight keeps a respectful distance from the girls but he may, in time, fall to the lure of the " speaker sex. " JESSIE ROSEN " Here ' s health to the lass with merry black eyes Here ' s riches and joy and success, Here ' s honor and fame to her w ho tries. And that is our Jessie, I guess. SYLVIA SAFT Here is another case of " see one, see the other. " We of- ten wonder if Sylvia could ever be found without Jessie. She, however, is a dandy girl and is well liked by everyone. Do you suppose that being a fine student and a dependable friend has anything to do with it? RUTH SEACHRIST Ruth is one of the most practical girls in the February class, and we are sure v e can rely upon her to maintain our standards of good sense. She is the type we all admire; clean spirited and sure of herself. She is out to win and it being Ruth, she will win! A " green " student is better than a " Blue " one. 25 ERMA STEWART Excel, if you must. We admit that you ' ve won; And you still will be winning. When life ' s race is run. JEAN STEWART 5e her in the dewy flowers, see her sweet and fair; ar her in the tunefu ' birds, hear her charm the air; There ' s not a bonnie flower that sprii By fountain, shaw, or green.

He has not been with us four years, but the popularity he has piled up would shade the sun. It is strange that the school does not suffer earth tremors when Gerry mounts the stairs. A good book is the best friend, espe 26 ally if it bankbook. -fTTilltlili ' Tr W Mh iHiiri; ill ■fill m ill =m LOUIS TANNENBAUM Louie is rather small in stature but he cannot be excelled in many things. His dramatic ability is remarkable. He is some vhat of a joker, too, we hear, and has surprised many of us with his wit. NELLIE VETRONE " In thy dark eyes splendor. Where the warm light loves to dwell. " In whose warm eyes we find frivolous fun and frankness. There are other virtues to counter balance Nellie ' s over sup- ply of humor. KIMBER VOUGHT .Although Kimber was not fortunate enough to be num- bered among those who go into our athletes ' hall of fame, he is one of Drake ' s most earnest and enthusiastic disciples. His efforts are not wholly confined to athletics as he is cap- able of squeezing a clarinet to some musical advantage. Ask Mr. Owen about that swinet. .ALMA WEHN Alma still retains her golden curls even though she has done them up. She graduated in February and her average was no mean mark. We liked her a lot, and we feel an emptiness since she left but we know that out in life she if going to make others like her just as she made us. MARION WERLE A wholesome, friendly, kindly girl, Marion. She never was known to be sarcastic or " catty. " Such adjectives just cannot survive in the same world in which Marion lives. ESTELLE WESCHLER When there ' s music in the air. We all know that Stella ' s there. With her flute-like voice this curly haired miss can keep her host of friends in spasms of laughter or, if she prefers, in serious silence. " The clock afe.

We took for our motto. " Watch Us Grow. " and although Academy could hardly hold us then, we lived up to that motto by gathering more students, more chums, and more know Iedge. 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 organi :ations. For w ho 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. It 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 feh v. e 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 had iplished a it dc In due time we were justly rewarded, and it was with the greatest dignity that w e assumed the long-looked-for title of Seniors. Here w e 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 grov.-n 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 ' Glee Club furnished several delightf-l selections, and the evening ended when the refreshments had been srved. Financially and socially, the affair was a pronounced success. When we won the Princeton Alumni Trophy cup; when W3 gained water-polo championship; when we received recognition in basketball and v. ' ere successful in track, we knew our efforts had not been in vain. And so, as we leave our Alma Mater, we feel that we have borne our joys and re- sponsibilities well, and it is with pride and confidence that we enthrust them to the effi- cient Juniors. 32 r-iMir-ii iM The ELEANOR ADAMS he heeks are smiling ros Beside her lips a dimple peeks, The day breaks on an earnest heart, From girls like her, how can we part?

He is quite a journalist, we hear. We wondered why that profession was becoming so popular at Academy. Now we know! FRED ALTHOF Fred ' s mastery of his mother tongue has won our admira- tion and envy. It seems just as easy for him to explain the workings of a great dynamo as a passage from Hamlet! Have you ever succeeded in winning an argument with him?

When one can take Virgil and Cicero at the same time it is absolute proof that one ' s gray cells are efficient. We might add that Dot is the second reason for the pretzel ' s popularity. If we look for it, even spilt milk h 33 BERTHA BACHER Bertha is a cross-word puzzle. Hard to solve, but the solution brings a feeling of satisfaction.

It requires the skill of a captain to avoid the rocks and breast the tide, and Bill has brought us safely home. We are on terra firma again and his steady hand has guided us aright.

HELEN BRUELL " All the world ' s a stage, And all the men and women merely players. " School has been somewhat of a stage to Helen for did she not appear in one of the best plays given in ' 26? To take part in Academy ' s dramatics one must be a good student and Helen is that. MARY BUCKMANN Mary " stoops to conquer. " She is not any taller than any of the other girls but nevertheless she " stoops " to our level. Perhaps the reason that there are not more who know her is that she lives in spheres above us. MARSHALL BURD In the course of four years. Stub has mastered a number of things, such as an Auburn, trigonometry, himself and a host of other things that go to make life successful.

Dun, smile! " Chronic grumblitis kills more happy souls than a plague 36 JEANNETTE CARRINGER " The hours I ' ve spent with thee, dear heart, Are as a string of pearls to me, I count them every one apart, My Rosary, my Rosary! " That flowing melody seems to characterize Jeanette. She keeps her lessons in her head and her songlets in her heart, but as a hobby Ramon Novarro is her favorite actor. LEONA CHARTLEY " Her face is not more sunny than her heart. " Leona has a sunny heart and her motto is, we think, " smile the while. " When all her neighbors have been bob- bing their hair she has remained firm and has a nice lot of " v oman s crowning glory " to show for her firmness.

He served faith- fully on the football squad, in fact he is quite well known because of connection with the team. After considering his upright character, his good card is a trifle. RUTH CLARK To us she seems little short of feminine perfection and as we, poor misguided mortals, are not in the habit of de- scribing goddesses we can simply quote: " Amazing brightness, purity and truth. Eternal joy and everlasting love. " HARRY COHEN " Thought is deeper than all speech, Feeling deeper than all thought. " We have noticed that Harry feels and thinks before he speaks, which is the acknowledged proper thing to do. As far as good sense is concerned, he reminds us of the " wise old owl " that sat on the oak. Salesmanship is the art of making yourself believe that a polite 37 i ' ji; efusal is an excuse to go on arguing. , y-rTi ijiiTrtt Tp V jwh I wr- ill ii = m ii jib BERNARD CONNORS " Dutch " has chosen the stormy path of criminal lawyer.

LUCILLE COTTON Lucille is a Girl Reserve and that means that she is a real fine girl. Though she has a rather serious aspect of life, that saving sense of humor is lurking within hailing distance. If she keeps on with her art of pleasing some day we shall be reeling off the " 1 knew her when " line. AILENE COX The prettiest of creatures, the daintiest of misses, Ailene with her sweet and modest v ays has captivated the hearts of those who know her. Keep smiling, Ailene, it is one of your chief attractions. 7 . ., I LOUISE DIEFENDORF " Benji " is a member of the school of mermaids who we hear bask on the shores of our deep green pool, combing their shingled locks in the stiff ocean breezes. She dons civilian clothes occasionally and comes up to see how the seniors are getting along without her, which is not very well, it must be admitted. MARIE DOBMEIER Marie is just a dainty bit of humanity whose readv smile, rtnd cheerful outlook make her a real American girl. ' She is a member of one of our cliques and is rarely seen without the " other Marie " and Elizabeth. We hear she is a " wiz- ardette " at German.

LAURA DURBIN „ t " Sing a song ' o cheer.

WILLIAM EHRHEART " He is complete in feature, and in mind. With all good grace to grace a gentleman. " Bill deserves pages and pages more, but we feel that erything is expressed in those two lines. WINIFRED ELLER " Her very frowns are fairer far, Than smiles of other maidens are. " She is the chum sort of girl. With no effort on her part she lets us know that she can be a friend if there ever was one. Martha and Eleanor and she might well be called the " Three Graces.

The bonfire of " 26 just would not burn without her. Then, too, she is a jolly sport and a lover of adventure. MABEL FLICK " Let me live in my house. By the side of the road, And be a friend to man. " Mabel is a bouquet of cheery friendliness with the fresh leaves of sympathy intermingled. She understands, she cares. " A kind face is a beautiful face, " and Mabel ' s is both kind and beautiful. WILBUR FOHT " Fohtie " has v on honors on the swimming team. On the dance floor he can do equally well. He also possesses the notable merit of being able to navigate to perfection a Ford MARTHA FOREMAN Though Martha is a quiet maid. We ' ve often heard it romired, Shes full of life as she can be.

Moreover she can make friends with anybody, and that alone is a gift straight from the gods. She stands well in her classes, and high in the opinion of her friends. FREDERICK GARDNER Fred has a morbid propensity for weddings, newspapers and, of course, the ladies. The three go hand in hand.

LENA GOLDBERG " Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. " Therefore Lena v. ' Orks with great fervor at everything and comes out the better for it. A sincere, pleasant girl, deserv- ing of praise. SIGMUND GORNY Sigmund makes us think of the inspiring speeches made by Webster when our country was new. History, science, literature, philosophy, common sense, and Sigmund come with a single thought. May his intellectual powers bloom and produce great fruits. r CATHERINE GRAF Catherine belongs to the smart set of ' 26. In fact, she is smarter, academically and socially, than most of us. How she manages her " engagements " and her lessons too is too baffling for us! ADRIEL GRAHAM They tell me, .4ddie, you are leaving. Many friends will grieve to see you go. But go into the great wide world, Addie, Strive, fight and win you can, you know! JOHN GRASBERGER The ball sailed high in the air. The crowd gave a gasp of suspense. Down, dov. n, down came the twisting pigskin and the hero-captain snatched it out of the atmosphere and scampered across the goal for a touchdown.

On the contrary we find this young man has more than the average share of useful brain matter. MARY GREIDER " Her eyes are blue and dewy. As the glimmering summer dawn. Her face is like the eglantine. Before the dew is gone. " That tinkling, rollicking, fetching laugh of hers has a fa reaching effect. CARL GUYER Carl is a patron of all Academy ' s dances. Of course, he is popular and well-liked by the boys, but. the girls seem to think that he is Prince Charming himself. We hear he is a good sport and a hearty (?) loser. MARGARET HAMLETT " Like to the damask you see. Or like the blossom on the tree. " Margaret is our sweet girl graduate with her brown curls, brown eyes and modest smile. Who would v.-ant a sweeter, truer friend? DONALD HAMOT " Tuffy " has rather a gruff appearance and some of us think him quite belligerent. Well, he used to be but he is not any more. Underneath his burly exterior he is as thoughtful and courteous as Lord Chesterfield. IMELDA HAUSMAN She likes the world best neat and trim. Like the new-washed April air.

ADELAIDE HOFFMAN " Dale ' s " pet hobby is playing her uke, and she certainly can make the string hum! There are other things she plucks too, we speak of heart strings. We hear that many a lonesome lad has been cheered at one of those " informal gatherings " that Dale sponsors at her cottage on the lake. HENRIETTA HORN Henrietta is one of the few girls of the class who has jet black hair and dancing brown eyes. After she graduates we wonder what she is ever going to do without Mary, who has been for some time her constant companion. We. also, are wondering what we are going to do w ithout her!

IRENE KARSH Wit! Humor! Laughter! Joy! Irene! Just a bunch of happy exclamation, that. As a specimen for our curiosity shop bring around the creature who does not know Irene ' s cheerful grin as well as he knows Irene herself. From past experience we know that out in life ' s highway she can laugh a path through anything that gets in her way. DAISY KELLY " Few persons have courage enough to appear as good as thev really are. " Daisy is even better than she seems and we envy her. A girl with such courage and integrity will surely achieve THOMAS KENNEDY Tom has recently taken up the study of the trombone and is mastering it to a high degree. Together w ith this, he has had valuable experience with his fiddle . We have been en- tirely unaware of the rise of this very young musician. FLORENCE KING - I I know something and, contrary to rule, I shall tell; namely Florence King made a very realistic society matron in " Tweedles " , even though she is just a senior in high school. She is proficient in most sports, but swimming is her forte, and just to prove it ask the wild waves. LEONA KLICK Leona has chummed with her little clique, and has i been caught in the social current. She is a fine girl and wish her lots of luck! Face the sun and the shadows v ' ill fall behind. 45 FRANCES KOHLER In spite of the fact that Frances is very silent she has her aims, desires, and wishes just like the rest of us. She cher- ishes the fond hope of becoming a nurs e, and we surely w ish her the best of luck in her chosen line of work. ELIZABETH LAMBERTON She isn ' t a goddess. She isn ' t an angel, She isn ' t a lily, a rose or a pearl She is simply what ' s sweetest, Completest and neatest, A dear, little, sweet little girl!

HELEN LIEBAU Bubbling o ' er with wit and fun. Yet her work is always done. She has -words at her command. And have you seen her write shorthand? CLARENCE LOOMIS Clarence seems determined to win.

He re- ceived quite a bit of sympathy from the girls last semester by temporarily becoming a cripple. LUCY MASSELO Lucy has succeeded in making her school life a happy and profitable one. For who does not enjoy Lucy ' s pranks and Lucy ' s laugh, and yet appreciate the ability she shows on certain occasions? MARGARET MAYNARD Beauty and wisdom, health and fami These we can judge just from her n But more than this, she ' s proven it i And we will b e. rry to see her go. f, ' STANLEY McARDLE Is Stanley a woman-hater? Well, we had better not say. He, as as accomplished trombonist, loyally supports our orchestra. He is a member of the intellectual group and is worthy of sincece praise. Silence is apt to get wet when it reigns 47 ALBERTA McKAY We hear that she ' s to become a nurse In the future, bye and bye. Her smile ' s a proven, cure-all balm. Fretting patients, do not sigh. LeROY McLaughlin LeRoy has quite a bit to offer to the world in the way of good looks and manners. " We have not found out what he expects to become, but we never worry the least bit for with his personality it will incidentally be something worth while. LEO McMAHON " Micky " loves to wander into class a little late v rith a bored look on his face; and his hands thrust deep in his pockkets, but nevertheless he is a good scholar and a real athlete. The mere fact that he is a regular on the Erie County Electric basketball team is enough to convince us of his exceptional ability. MARGUERITE MEADE There are tv. ' o sides to every body, a right side and a left side. Marguerite ' s right is earnest and studious with lots of vim and grit to attack Cicero and French or any old thing that comes along. Her left is merry and mischievous with lots of vim and grit to attack the grumpers and growlers, and make them her friends just as she has made us. GEORGE MELHORN George is a quiet fellow who uses most of his energy play- ing the oboe in the orchestra. He belongs to the class of superior students, is true through and through, and will make good in any event. HARRIET MERRIT The ladder of succes Harriet is the first g irl to become editc -Academe and by her keen insight, ready and untiring patience she has certainly w her staff.

Somt say he is interested in motion pictures. No, of course, no as an actor. Is that the only interest the movies hold? CLARENCE MEYER He does not seem to worry a bit whether he is popular or not, and that is the reason he is so well liked and so well known. Dramatics, athletics, organizations, everything the school offers seems to reach out, and drag him in. CAROLINE MINGOY " A violet by a mossy stone Half hidden from the eye Fair as a star when only o Is shining in the sky. " PRISCILLA MOHNEY Who is a leader kind and true? Who is a friend who would die for you? Who is the girl who banishes woes. Scattering sunshine wherever she goes? To be sure, ' tis our pretty Priscilla ! RICHARD MONO Dick neither grinds nor shirks but strikes a happy medium which places him in good standing with both the faculty and the students. The word " happy " is suggestive of his general self. Very few, if any of us, have ever seen him in a sullen mood. Dick has decided upon Cornell as his next school.

" EDNA MUDGE " Laugh and the world laughs with you. " Edna does not seem averse to this saying, and surely no one can help but laugh with her. Life is one huge joke inyway, Edna, so keep up the laughter and merriment. DAVID MURPHY David is a jolly, easy-going, likeable fellow, extremely popular with his class mates. We hear he is going into poli- tics some day, and in the meantime his term as class presi- dent will serve to get him in trim. Perhaps he will change his mind and earn glory with his voice. We failed to hear the " Prisoner ' s Song " but the Boys ' Glee Club will miss him. Living costs more these days, but it is worth 50 w iL i ' 11 =m ISABEL NEFF " A creature not too bright or good, For human nature ' s daily food. For transient sorrows, simple wiles. Praise, blame, love, kisses, tears and smiles. ' HARVEY NELSEN Harvey has attained great heights — do you recall the day he cleared the bar at five feet, nine inches? Well, it took plenty of training and hard work to perform that feat. His accomplishments are not solely limited to the physical plane. For direct and accurate proof, just ask any one of his teachers. FLORENCE NELSON ••What is beautiful is good, and who ' is good will be beautiful.- A sweeter girl than Florence is hard to find. Gifted « ith a gentle disposition, her winning ways make us all adn: ire and love her. As for Ken, he is exceedingly lucky. HAROLD NEUMAIER If he does not express himself vocally to any extent, sure- ly his drum has a voice in his expression. He is another of the " boys " who have become " men " in so short a while. Since he has donned long trousers he seems a different person. CYNTHIA NORTH If you want fun look for " Cin ; If you want pep look for " Cin, " If you want wit look for " Cin. " If you want a pal look for " Cin. " In short if you want an id l companion who has all th qualities you have always admired — look for " Cin! " ELSIE O ' BRIEN " Slight the subject but not so the praise. " Elsie is a bit small to be graduating but in the showdown she seems to have lots more steadfastness than the majority of our illustrious class. She excels in the commercial line. When we say " excels " we mean " excels.

We must not forget, however, that her four years of high school life here have not been tarnished by some of those little letters that stand for " delinquent. " As for her future dull spots on it are going to be as hard to find as equatorial eskimos. DOMINICK ORLANDO Dom has spent most of his school days in selecting a hobby. He has tried drafting and bookkeeping and music. We wonder what he likes best. He has lots of friends but he and Dundon seem to be inseparable. EVELYN OSBORNE •Co IS tho ' coy and gentle the ' retired. " Evelyn ' s sweet, modest self and quiet manner are char- acteristics which have brought her friends and happiness. If a typing record of sixty words a minute means a private secretaryship in the President ' s office, Evelyn will surely be the lucky girl. JEAN OVES " A soul as white as heaven. " Jean arrived in our midst only last year but in the short time she has been here we have found her splendid charac- ter. Jean says, " Love me, love my accent. " We do love Jean ' s accent. It is as pleasantly " different " as Jean her- self. LOUISE PALMER " One touch of merriment makes the whole world grin. " This seems to be Louise ' s slogan, at least in American History class. She came to Academy from Columbus, Ohio, two years ago, and she has succeeded in winning a throne for herself in the hearts of many of us. ■IX WILLETT.A PEPLINSKI " Pep, " true to her nickname, is known by her vivacity and pep. She and " Lorett " have graced our school for a long time. She has the ability for keeping any typewriter so well under control that there is no doubt of her becoming some little " stenog.

Just keep that pep, " Caesar, " and you are bound to win! WILLIS PETERSON " Nor hope to find a friend, Who has not found a friend in thee. " Who cannot find a champion and a steely friend in W may as well rest assured that there are no friends on this green footstool. We have found him honest and upright and a gentleman. MARGUERITE PFIRMAN " Hark! hark the lark. " The lark must come second, however, if he competes with Marguerite, for her sweet voice has been of much help to our chorus. Says Marguerite, " I do but sing because I must, and pipe but as the linnets do. " ELMA PORTER Do you suppose Elma is always as lenient with transgres- sors as she is with us when we enter the library without an admit? Fervently, we hope so. She knows school life inside Dut, and upside down, and those w ho do not know her are rather a minus quantity. ' Bye, Elma, good luck! PERIS PRATT " A sudden thought strikes me let u friendship.

He has laughed with us and wept (?) with us over a ghastly exam, and now when we must part we are giving him our hand and promising him eternal friendship. THORA RATH gay Always happy, c Thora ' s the kind we like Thora, though just a slip of a girl, is so gay and lively that she takes the place of several girls of the tall, serious type. We all hope that Thora will keep her sunny disposi- tion, for she will need it during some of life ' s gloomy days.

" f ,P ANNETTE RIDER Not many of us knew Annette until her senior year. Just recently she blossomed, and we wonder why we did not know her before. She is a rather diminutive bit of feminity and she is one of our " listeners. " but she is a pretty little pal and we love her. MARGARET RITTER When Margaret regards us with that bland smile and those wide-open eyes we sense a " kindred spirit. " Some of us only recently discovered her friendliness, but we are mak- ing up for lost time. PAUL ROBERTS Another of our best type of fellows. Paul is what every boy wants to be a good sport. But he does not stop there, as his class room records prove. We also hear that he is gaining popularity with the girls. LAWRENCE ROWEN To satisfy our curiosity we must know where Lawrence [procured those red cheeks. He is very much the man since he has become a senior. Some of his best friends tell us that lie is not a fair weather friend, but a pal who " sticks " through thick and thin. In the spring a young I ' s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of clothe 54 CARLYLE RUHL " Curley ' s " good qualities are numerous and not hard to find and his mastery of the piano is undisputed. Speaking of his accomplishments, we must not forget that rattling, good " Henry " of which he is chauffeur, mechanic and nurse- maid. PAUL RUMBOL Hail to " Pete! " He is one of the most brilliant of Acade- my ' s football luminaries. Pete is one of those students who has mixed football and studies and made successes of both .And the girls, oh, the girls! GEORGE RYAN George left us before he graduated and we miss him. He never has much to say but what he says means something. We do not know what he intends to do, but whatever his profession, he will surely succeed. ROSE SABATINO " And yet she ' s neither nymph nor fay. Nor yet of angel kind; She ' s but a racing school girl With her curls blown out behind. " Rose is a member of the conscientious sect who works first and then plays, and does both well. FRIEDA SALMEN A very charming little lass, A genius in the shorthand class. Whose pretty face and winsome air. Have made her welcome everywhere. ROSE SCALISE Rose has an abundance of " those endearing young charms " and is truly ,dire of the sweetest bl ossoms in the garden of ' 26. She, scevt d at her piano, can face any audience and leave tljem c wed with delight. Good bye. Rose, and good luck! . r - i The only real of " try-it- THEODORE SCHAAL Commonly known as " Dud " and navigator of the higher altitudes, Ted is counted as one of our biological experts. Some time ago he discovered a delightful species of poison ivy, but after experiencing its results he classed at as " not so good. " Well, anyway, we hope his success is as prominent as his heighth. ABE SCHERR Abe is exceptionally brilliant in his classes, in fact, Dame Rumor has it that his report card is to be retained, framed and hung in the office so that we less spectacular students may admire it, and perhaps be inspired to do better work. MARCELLA SCHERR A May-bloom face. Soft, azure eyes, Marcella gay, Yet droll and wise! MILDRED SCHLAUDECKER Mildred is usually the center of the most mirthful group. Her slogan, we should say, is " Make others happy. " As for an art, there is no .one who can tniinic quite as vi ' ell as Mildred. ,, U ANNEBELILE SCHNEIDER A " live wire " has nothing o i Annebelle who is noted for vivacity and pep, from the groiind floor to the third. .Anne- belle is truly jfeminirie ' as is displayed by the fact that she has " changed heVmind " and will graduate with us in June. RALPH SCHNEIDER As a football man Ralph has our utmost appreciation and profound admiration. He is mild and easv-going as plump people usually are. We hear that the proverbial " friend indeed " has not a claim on fame when Ralph is around. you press forward you will get pushes to keep you going 56 iMr iLHir ii» iM, EVELYN SCHROEDER Evelyn seems gifted with a remarkable ability for a quick change in the cafeteria. We promise a scholarship to anyone who can beat her reciting, and million dollars to her rival in good fellowship and cheer. BUELAHBELLE SESSAMEN Buelahbelle is one of Academy ' s star girl basketball pi era. Pretty and charming — is it small wonder that she is th center of attraction at a game. RUTH SHATTUCK The academic curriculum interests Ruth more than the social whirl. The industrious bees make the lovely blossoms, and it is industrious girls like Ruth that make the world a better place because they have lived it it. WARNER SHELDON Ask Warner to analyse any chemical composition. He is a veteran at the work. He is the type that attends strictly to books and actually knows what a high school graduate should know. To avoid giving our readers the impression that he is super-human, we must admit that he finds time, occasionally, to crack a joke. HAROLD SHIPLEY Harold is the Beau Brummel of Academy, popular with the boys but more popular with the girls. He is a prominent patron and indorser of all Academy ' s dances, in fact if he is not present the hop is not considered a social success- JOHN SHOEMAKER John, the ever shining light of cleverness will soon cease to shine in Academy. He will be sadly missed by the stu- dents in his classes for he has saved them many a long and hard lesson by arguing with the teacher the whole period.

She has lent so many hands that we wonder she is still so smilingly capable. RICHARD SOUTHWORTH Dick is one of our ablest students and although his ability has not been used to any extent as yet, we are of the opinion that when he is confronted with life ' s problems it will shine in all its glory. HAROLD SPAEDER " Spuds " evidently has determined to divide his time be- tween study and athletics. It has not been definitely decided whether he will be a pitcher or a dashing football hero. OLIN STANCLIF Ice cream became suddenly popular with the girls when Olin took his place behind the counter in the cafeteria. There is a reason. He is interested in track and is a regular Mercury when given a pair of track shoes and a long stretch to run on. WILLELLA STOUT The plump little darling of ' 26, perhaps a wee bit timid and retiring, perhaps less ostentatious than some of us, but she has riddetn over the bumps without a fatal spill, and that Take things as th to go after. 58 igr-iMir giNH Mii ' ANNA STREIDER Anna is good; she has a good card too. Someone has said that her friends are so numberless that she has to catalog them to keep things straight. That may be a little far- fetched but anyway we know that everyone knows her. FREDERICK STRITZINGER Fred is inclined to be a little bit bashful but this charac- teristic is by no means a handicap to him in his studies for he has succeeded commendably well. GWENDOLYN STUMP " Her eyes are stars of twilight fair, Like twilight, too, her dusky hair. But all things else about hei " drawn, From May-time and the fiery dawn. " She can be either " Peter Pan " or the original " Mids mer Night ' s Dream. " Suit yourself. BIANCO SURGO " Life is real, life is earnest. " Bianco accepts this as true and seriously applies it to her studies. But after classes you can scarcely find a more fun- loving girl than Bianco. MABEL SWEYER Mabel is a frisky little bit of femininity with enough ani- mated electricity to run a dynamo. That pep is poured forth daily in wonderous recitations. Many a time hav6 we sat in misery wondering just where she gets all the informa- MAX TANNENB.AUM It can be truthfully said that Max is the life of any class room.

She is up and beyond when there are lessons to learn, friends to find, or brightness to brew. EDMUND THOMAS •■Peewee " excels in the skill of brawn and brain displayed on the basketball court. He has captained our team, and has shown his rare ability in spite of difficulties. EVELYN THORNTON Another of the bashful type! Some of our girls would look adorable in hoop skirts and bonnets! Evelyn, for in- stance. After all, modesty should be woman ' s forte. COSTON TOWNS Coston is one of Academy ' s best trombone players. He plays in the band, and has acquired an enviable reputation as a trombonist. He intends to become a professional player, and we are sure he will shine with the famous. OPAL TRAUT Opal sits back and regards us with merry eyes while w wonder what she is thinking about. Many a time we hav been loath to say, " A penny for your thoughts. Opal. " Per haps some day she will concoct a book of character sketche of her old friends at Academy. LEONA TURNER Leona is the little kitten of her class. Her scholastic ■cord is as fine as her small self. As far as the Girls ' Chorus concerned we all know that " like wind in summer sigh- g: her voice is soft and sweet. " ver said, " Save the surface and you save all. 60 iBr iMir gii i imi E MARY UEBEL " Mary, Mary, quite contrary, How do your friendships grow? " " Kind deeds and smiles. Some love and some wiles, And that ' s how my friendships grow. " HELEN UHLMAN Helen is a big yellow chrysanthemum with a personality shading from pure white quietness to the brilliant gold of witty humor. At least that is what many of us have likened her to. Lest you do not understand, the chrysanthemum is a beautiful flower; the metaphor still appli es. Who, by the " way, ever saw her without " Dale " Hoffman? MILDREN VAN DUSEN True, Mildred has a fair complexion but fair does not ap- ply to Mildred ' s grades. She is an A- 1 student and has a firm foundation upon which to build her temple of Success. Many of us wonde as not he is talking witty being it is bee; SAMUEL VANGIRO at the odd things Sam says, but as er our heads. " He has extraordir small, and if we have not found hi ie we cannot appreciate his wit. CHARLES VAN TASSEL Charles is a steady plugger who helps to support the school ' s honor. He never says much, but he sees everything that goes on around him, and catalogs it in his brain against the time when he will rise up and show the world that Academy has turned out another great man. RUBYE VOIGHT; Somebody is always taking the joy oiit br life but IRubye puts it in again. Who was it that said woman ' s chief ftha was a pleasing voice? Well, Rubye, has it; to say nothing of fluffy auburn tresses!

He is quite a salesman we hear. By the way he sold non-sinkable bathing suit to Adam Smith the other day. THOMAS WATSON " A man he seems of cheerful yesterdays And confident tomorrows. " Tom left us before our senior year was finished and we miss him much. He is a good student from what we hear, and quite a mechanic from what we see. LUCILLE WELCH " We meet thee like a pleasant thought. " After we have parted, Lucille will still be a pleasant thought as a girl friend whom we cared for and liked. High school days should be crowded w ith happy memories and we like to think that Lucille has helped us to make our mem- ories even more happy. ELEANOR WERTZ In this fast age you will not find many girls with bobbing curls, but Eleanor is individual in almost everything. Be- cause we lack words to describe her we shall lapse into ex- clamations. Such a student and such a friend! Leave it to Eleanor! LOUISE WESCHLER " Music hath charms. " Here is one of Academy ' s most popular and attractive girls. She contributes greatly to the success of the Girls ' Chorus. Louise is also as good a stenographer as singer. ROBERT WESCHLER Bob will be missed on Academy ' s basketball court where he has shone brilliantly for two years. Although he is one of Mr Radder ' s star journalists, we hope he will go into the shoe business and keep " Weschler ' s of Course, " famous. The road to success is full of ruts and puddles, but there is no detour sign. 62 wjf K ' n ii r, " V MILDRED WEST She can sing and sKe can dance, She can hold us in a trance: For her eyes are like the stars, And her teeth as white as pearl; No fault her beauty mars. She is queen of all the girls. MORRIS WEXLER Morris is not in sympathy with the theory that he who works, wins. Work or play, he is graduating with us so there is no doubt of his being a trump. WILMUR WHITEMAN When Wilmur smiles he is " one vast substantial smile ' but, unfortunately, when he is cross he is quite the opposite Now he may be cross and cranky but we have seldom seei him so. The girls especially will vouch for this. Now girls, is he not quite an Adonis? BERNICE WILER ' Tis hard to part when friends are dear. Perhaps, ' twill cost a sigh, a tear.

" 63 WILBERT WURST Wilbert served in the print shop for some time and for that reason we have not become very well acquainted with him. However, he is well known to the trade class boys. We are glad he is graduating with us and v e wish him tons of luck! CHESTER ZIEGLER Chet is another of our blond men who has discovered path that leads straight to the hearts of the girls. He has mean musical ability and is a good student, too. He Fred and Bill can rightfully claim the title of Acaden •Three Musketeers. " n y.

" His nimble feet and happy nature have brought friends to his door. If he goes through life as well as he dances we are sure of his success. HOWARD DE FOE Howard belongs out " in the great open spaces where men are men. " The school room is too quiet for him. He dresses, looks and acts like a true westerner. He has a large supply of useful k nowledge that puts many of the best of us to shame. LOUIS DI NICOLA Louis decided late that he would graduate with us. He is such a youngster that we are surprised at his presence in Not doing wrong is not doing right. ig iMir l-llMMIIali JOHN EVERHART Johnnie has no outstanding characteristics, accomplish- ment or hobby, but you have often heard it said that " It is the little things that go to make the great " Thus it is that all his good traits help to make him a fine fellov and a student. JOSEPH HEINTZL - Italy has her poet-warrier, Morocco has her priest-war- rior and Academy has her musician warrior, Joseph Heintzl. He punts a mean pigskin, and toots a wicked clarionet. Be that as it may Joe has his good points and ought to " bring home the bacon. " HELEN HENDERSON Just this last semester the fresh east wind brought into oui midst a pretty little girl in the person of Helen Henderson Helen has come from Dunkirk to graduate with us and we are very glad to have her. We hope she likes our school a lot because well, every loyal Academician knows why!

We should like to see just how many of her virtues we could set down here, but since o ' lr space is limited we have to be content w ith saying that she has proved herself to be unalloyed gold. GLADYS SMITH " My tongue within my lips I reign. For who talks much must talk in vain. " We have a sneaking feeling that Gladys is not quite so 5uiet when she is away from school. Of course, one cannot ilways be serious. The friendship of Gladys and Helen Sink s like that of David and Jonathan. H ' HH y " Learn to labor and to wait.

Falls like the softest of rosebud petals That drop in the dark of the moon. Then stealing, yes, stealing comes the sly old Sandman, On his back is his pack of dreams that he gives To the kindest, yes kindest, of kiddies he knows. So he goes on his toes, and he gives to them all; Gives to the greatest and smallest, no difference he 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. Ken Schauble. THE SENIOR LEGACY We, the class of ' 26, do Here bequeath our full possessions.

When the sun is out of sight. With its rambling, roaring, rolling. Till it sets my ears a-ringing. Like the v hippoorv ill 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. —Duncan Lasl LEARNING Oh, what do we learn as we go through li As the bright days dawn and die.

The gym was brilliantly decorated with our colors, blue and gold, and Brown ' s Isle of Pines orchestra furnished the snappy music. On February 5th. at Kahkwa Park Inn, the Junior class held the annual Junior- Senior Prom. There w ere 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. In 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.

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 w ill 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- tion; 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 v e hope for victory next year. Track was not abandoned as we feared it might be, but was ushered in w ith 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 sw imming and w ater polo teams deserve special mention for their fine work in gaining for Academy the first water polo championship. The girls ' basketball teams, svirimming team and the Leaders ' Class are unique groups of girls which have attracted considerable attention because of their unexpected progress. To Mr. L. C. Drake, Mr. M. V. Wright, Miss Edith Meyette and Mr. Jack Komora is due the praise for our achievements in athletics. In closing we wish to give the school ' s approval and sincere praise. Our boy and girl athletes have, indeed, " Carried on till the stars have gone. " 80 lB lLHir ill» li= IMilll3i|g( )]r-iLHiir-ii»».ii; Miiii3mB %s5» ' c MV A VRIGWTJR.

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 19-6. Captain Johnny scored the only touchdown for us, which was the first touchdown scored against the Lakewood City champions in the past two years. Later 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 " walloping " Meadville 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 w as a brilliant game and kept the crow d of spectators in continual suspense. Coach Drake ' s machine w orked 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 17-10. It 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 14-0 score. In this game we " ran away " with our opponents, North Tonawanda. This team, prior to its game here had not been de- feated during the season. It 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. ]r-iLHirjiii ii iMiiMi( When the day of October 3 1 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 v.-ritten in our opponents history and only time is capable of erasing it. On November 7 we played Tonaw anda on our home field and got the short end of the score, 12-6. 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 14 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 17-0 score. Academy won that game because she was at her height physically, and because she played a school w ho 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 da ined " brite 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 w as a particularly brilliant and animated group of Academy students that left the Stadium that evening. We were the victors; w e had exhibited our strength; the cup w as ours! 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.

C. Drake, mentor at the Hill School, found his material to be inexperienced, with a very hard schedule to follow. In the first game Academy defeated the Demolay by a score of 37-12. The Blue and Gold players had such a tight defense, that the Demolay failed to score during the first half. The second game saw the strong Alumni bow to defeat by a score of 32-10. The third and fourth games Academy played in Cleveland, where she defeated Cathedral Latin, Catholic champs of Ohio, by a score of 21-18. The next night we lost to the fast Lakewood champs of Ohio by a score of 29-18. On January 1 5 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 33-17. However, on the return game, it took this mighty aggregation three overtime periods to hand the Blue and Gold a 24-21 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 24-21. 90 i]» jMiir ill « ii m II =iii( jy The team went to Kane and due to the small floor our team was unable to compete ith the heavier Kane team.

This trip proved rather bad for the team, as many fellows had been suffering from colds. South High handed as a 2 1 - I 7 defeat. On the trip to Oil City, during their heavy floor, which caused a matinee game, Academy was upset by a score of 24-23. Then East High, runnerup in the finals of Pennsylvania State, met the hill school and in both games handed us defeat. The first score v. ' as 23-18 and the second was 46-19.

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 stadium. 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 discovered. ■Academy received her first taste of competition in the Lakewood relays on May 1. Academy, according to " dope " , was not considered important in this meet. Thirty-six high schools of high calibre were entered. The Blue and Gold 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 15 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 v.- ' on 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 f-leinlein, 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: Marvey Nelsen, high jump; Richard Speicher, 220 yard dash; Gilbert Spath. 220 yards low hurdles; and Stanley Fuller, pole vauh. 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 v ork being done on the stadium.

Last year the team finished 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 the 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 1 6-6. 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, 14 fouls making a total of 74 points. Milton Harding placed second with a total of 5 7 points. He scored 44 from baskets, and 13 from fouls. Hard- ing played in 1 1 games. John Malthaner was third, playing in 1 5 games. His total is 53 points, 34 from baskets and 19 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 personnel of the team is: First Row, left to right: Robert Winters, manager, Abe Cohen, forward; Milton Harding, forward; Howard Stoneroach, captain; Charles Daucher, guard; Sam Moore, guard; Edv.

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 40-12. 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. It 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— 43-13. With such stars as Cross, Huey, and Gillespie, Central was easily victorious, though our boys made a fine showing, pushing every winner. East High was beaten in the East pool b by the larger pool, our fish won by large mars series in second place. Df 36-23. Although handicapped ch race. Thus we ended the city 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 2-1, Flick scor- ing for Academy. However, we turned around and won the deciding games both by a score of 1-0. Mink, a substitute, scored the winning goal m 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 untiring efforts. 99 nimiiiiiiiiiiifP !ir iwir ii- ii=Miii= is % 100 ir-iMr ii iM Senior Girls ' Basketball Team Miss Edith Meyette, Coach Gladys Smith, Capt Forward Beulahbelle Sessamen Forward Eleanor Wertz , Guard Louise Diefendorf « Center Laura Durbin Guard SCHEDULE Seniors 21 Seniors 36 Seniors 14 Senio rs 12 Seniors 39 Seniors 36 Seniors 3 Seniors 8 Juniors 17 Freshmen Sophomore I 7 Juniors 16 Freshmen 4 Sophomores 1 6 3 » - ™ Juniors 1 6 Sophomores 10 101 Jill ;mmii IIIIL. — " mm " IttF " - :; t,-v— s — iir-iMrjii« ii=rinmii3iis Sophomore Class Girls ' Basketball Team Margaret Sullivan, Captain Miss Edith Mayette, Coach Personnel Sarah Getty Forward Margaret Sullivan Forward Charlotte Seaver Center Sophie Landberg „ Side Center Erma Grace Side Center Margaret Hall Guard Mildred Carlin Guard The Sophomore Class Girls ' Basketball team placed second in the interclass league.

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 10-8, in favor of the Sophomores; this placed them second in the interclass league. The star performer of the Sophomore team was Sarah Getty, v fho 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.

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.

L. Arnold 106 lar iMiir i ii iMiJiE Mr. C. L. Arnold Mr. C. L. Arnold, the subject of this sketch, was born near the village of Dillsbury, York County, on December 2 7, 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 York County and later attended summer sessions of County Normal Schools, which existed at that time; 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. In 1888 he entered Clarion Normal school and graduated from this institution in 1 890. His teaching career as supervising principal of borough schools then began. He spent ten years in this line of work at the following places: Boiling Springs, Cumberland County, one year; Mount Joy, Lane County, five years; Hummelstown, Dauphin County, four years. 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 Institute 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. He accepted the Erie position. This was in the year 1902, and he held it until February 1, 1926, at which time he was compelled to resign on account of ill health. iir-iwir-iii»»ii= Miii[3JiiB %s s ' PopKiariiif clarence Kei er iBr iHir ii-iiMmiJiiig The Academe Popularity Contest The 1926 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 w ere 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 w ide range of friends, as well as the title of most popular girl. Besides her excellent academic work she has shov n remarkable dramatic ability. Clarence Meyer, voted the most popular boy m Academy, has been active along athetic and dramatic lines. It is needless to say that he is well-known and is a general favorite. Perhaps the primary reason for his popularity is his happy, good-natured, easy- going v ay. 109 r iw ii» ii Miiii=iiiig( TENNIS 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, working 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 Schaffner, 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.

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. J. Luvaas, we have come to possess four fine groups of musical students. 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 ' Glee 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 many groups. Our band and our orchestra deserve special mention because of the fine music they have been rendering during the past year. Next to school spirit and athletics, music touches the hearts of the students, and akes them realize that shool is much more than text books and hard work. ii iwiirifiii n= Miii3JiiB Band The Academy High School Band, under the direction of Prof. W. S. Owen, has be- come an organization more worthy of sincere praise than any former Academy band. The instrumentation has been increased until v. ' e 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 basketball 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. The per Director: Prof. W. S.

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 character. 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 dasses 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. It has been favored immensely during the last year by having the ablest speakers talk on interesting topics. During the year one second degre the three high schools.

C. Radder, and has produced good results, such as the " Academy Star; " 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 " 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 Gersman, writing the " What D ' ye Know " 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 Getty, editor-in-chief; Harlan Lancaster, sports editor; John Grasberger, circulation manager, and Martha McMahon, advertising manager.

Hunt, Faculty Advisor Motto: Mien ou tout rein. (Do things well or not at alM 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 20 in the form of a Christmas party. At this party, the club entertained the other French students of 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. In 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- row: Isabel Glass, an accomplished speaker; Everett Zurn, who made his very successful debut in " Agatha ' s Aunt " ; Anne and David Gold, accomplished actors; and many other celebrities. One of the most interesting programs of the year was as follows: La Rosarie (In French) Charlotte Withrow Russian Rhapsody Dorothy Weaver The Mad Man | ,,,,-, Isabel Glass The Fan 1 The club members are now working on the first act o f the humorous play " Monseiur Perrichon, " which they hope to present before the club shortly. Arrangements are also being made for the framing of several pictures which will be left in the French Room. Although this is the club ' s first year it has made, with the guidance of its advisor, a fairly good start toward becoming a success. The personnel of the club is: Back row — Ruth Lynch, Louise Clayton, Dorothy Weaver, Aileen Austin, Marjorie Stitt.

SLEUTHS NAB PHANTOM FIRE DESTROYS ERIE ' S LARGEST ' PRETZEL FACTORY Damages resulting from a fire which started last night in the An- derson pretzel factory, 242 West Twelfth Street, were estimated this morning at approximately $25,000 by Fire-chief Leonard Pasqualicchio. The fire, which raged a good part of the night, and practically de- stroyed the entire factory, is be- lieved to have had its origin in a pan of pretzels left on the fire, w hen the proprietors, Doris and Dorothy Anderson, stepped out with two former classmates, William Frame and Eugene McManus.

' = AIRPLANE OWNERS FILE COMPLAINT Due to the over crowded condi- tion of the airplane parking space on top of Academy High school, where ' the students and faculty park their planes, a petition w as put in before Principal C. W. McNary to- day by the students demanding a larger parking space. The petition is believed to have been started by Eugene Starosta after his new helicouter model was damaged when Miss Tanner bumped into it with her Maxwell plane last week. During the last two weeks the students and some of the faculty had been landing in the stadium in front of the school but this was stopped by the stadium committee when they learned that the north goal post was torn down by Mr. Walter Detmers when taking off in his plane yesterday, and that the playing field and track were being cut up. Nearly the entire student body is behind the petition, as over two- thirds of them are owners of planes, and a larger landing space is in great demand at the hill school. Slayer Proves to Be Popular Society Man The mysterious phantom slayer who has baffled police circles for ten years by his daring and cruelty has at last been caught. The capture was made last even- ing by Detective Harold Shipley and his assistants, Elmer Hostettler and Theodore Schaal, as the mur- derer attempted to enter the home of Mr. and Mrs. William Ehrheart on Glenwood Boulevard. Chief of Police Edward Murphy an- nounced this morning that the arch criminal is none other than Carl Guyer. This discovery of the phan- tom ' s identity was indeed a great blow to society which has for years acepted Guyer as an honorable gen- tleman of unquestionable social standing. (Continued on Page 2) MODEL REFUSES POSITION Just before this issue went to press " Whitey " Sola told the reporter that he had refused to join the New York stage success, " Artists and Models. " Although he did not divulge the salary he was offered, the reporter inferred it v. as to be immense. Unlike " Red " Grange, " Whitey " Sola has decided to finish his school career, as he is adverse to notoriety, and is of the mind that one ' s school- ing comes but once in a life time.

SECOND ISSUE OUT Our most learned reader! We have as you see returned again. Our motto last year was " Once is enough. " We haven ' t as yet mur- dered anybody, and we think in or- der to do so, we shall have to give you two doses. This one is worse than the first. We hope that before this dose finishes you, you will be able to write to us. We shall then have your name, and publish it, calling you a martyr to literature. And our paper is literature. Say what you will! The most intelligent cats and dogs agree with us. So will you, dear readers, for you can- not help yourself. One last warning before 1 depart. Do not dare to class us with Shake- speare or Milton. Their works are as naught compared with our grand and glorious paper, " THE RADDER PRESS. " KUKU KAT KRACKS The faculties sent me a card to write you about histories, so here 1 am. Somebody said Columbus discov- ered America. He didn ' t. It was Bull Run in a Spaulding seaplane, with a load of mocking birds from the Canary Islands, who alighted here first. Columbus was a general in the Civil War. General Abraham Lincoln wasn ' t in the Revolutionary War. He was a private in the world fight. In the battle of Concord, he captured a Wright Brother ' s Submarine single handed. During the battle of the .Argonne Forest, which was pulled off at Lex- ington in the Civil War, Pershing, who was captain of " Old Ironsides, " sank the " May Flower.

Bobbed hair, rouged lip, and cheek; These sisters of our modern day, With powdered neck and beak. And then the brothers, oh, what ties, With stripes and zig-zag turns; Their checkered sweaters, sagging socks And hair with sleek sideburns. And the things they ride to school in. Those were cars that used to be, Are a never ending pleasure For a looker-on to see. " What ' s the matter with these Mod- erns? " A reformer ' s wont to shout! " They ' re all right, " we yell in chorus, " All O. K. without a doubt. " STUDENTS PROTEST Can we, the Academy High school students, have esculators installed in the old alma mater? 1 ask you, can we? Sure, we can. All we need is your solemn word to uphold the cause. We sure need them. Take for instance our fathers and mothers, former students of Academy High. Look at them. They were burdened down with work. Their mental and physical faculties were overtaxed and still they were compelled to walk up and down the stairs to the study hall or the gym. They were forced to rush down the stairs at the lunch bell, eat lunch and then walk or run up the stairs to classrooms again. Reflect, you students. Think how they turned out. We are being tortured in a similar way. Shall we stand for it? I ' ll say we won ' t. That is all but this — if you don ' t believe what 1 haven ' t said, see the English book.

June 31 1936 RADDER PRESS Page Three Press Backing William Getty Non-politicians of Erie were heartily surprised when Edward Berry, a young man of the city, stepped forward on a solid-wood- and-no-brains platform, supported by our esteemed paper, and made a heavy bid for the position of gar- bage distributor of the city of Erie. Although defeated by the strate- gic efforts of Harlan Lancaster, cam- paign manager for the opposition, he made a wonderful showing, by re- ceiving nine votes compared " with the 9999 votes cast for the victor, John Little. Now the dear public is again about to be surprised when the " Radder Press " will again put forward a can- didate, this time for the position of street-cleaner, which has lately been made subject to popular vote. Our candidate has recently re- turned from an investigation of Sing Sing prison v.-here he remained vol- untarily for three months (since there v as no means of escape). He will make his stay there the subject which will begin this week, and con- tinue through the next two months. A straight-forward, handsome young man, William Getty, is our candidate. FACULTY WINS MEET Upsetting the dope, Walter Det- mers, ace of the Academy faculty swimming team, defeated " Whitey " Sola of the student team in the an- nual varsity-faculty contest yester- day and brought victory to the colors of the faculty. This meet, the biggest attraction of the year, caused must excitement and thousands of water fans were disappointed because of the low water mark in the old swimming hole back of the school, due to the lack of rain. The dopsters were greatly sur- prised when Detmers defeated Sola by twelve feet in the 22-yard dash. The only casualty of the meet was the death of " Butch " Parsons, who was attacked by a shark and pulled down to a watery grave. BELLE VALLEY GETS PEWEE " Edmund " Pewee Thomas, cap- tain of Academy High school basket- ball squad in 1926, has signed up with the Belle Valley town team. Along with Thomas will float Mr. Eugene Sheik Euphraneus McManus, who expects to coach the Belle Val- ley Kindergarten golf team. i RADDER vs. DETMERS In ten-round bout C. C. Radder, heavy weight cham- pion of the Erie School Teachers ' Association, has challenged Walter Detmers, feather-weight champion, to a I 5 round bout to decide which will hold the association title, it was learned to day. It is rumored that " Fighting Det- mers " has accepted the challenge with " Kid " Radder and that the title bout will be held soon. The fight will probably be staged in the arena and all ringside seats will be sold to Academy students. Detmers will probably have his regular second, Dana Darsie, while Radder will have to get another, as his is in the hospital with a broken Principal C. W. McNary, presi- dent of the Erie School Teachers- Fighting Association, will probably be the " Kid ' s " second. MANAGER RETURNS Walter Lancaster, former graduate of Academy High, 1926, has recent- ly returned from college where he has been studying physical culture. He has taken up quarters under the Dew Drop Inn and has outfitted a gymnasium with complete and up- to-date equipment. He has regular schedules for working hours and will give private and class instructions for reducing and growing taller. He has already two pupils: Gerry Sweet and Sher- man Hickey. This will be a decided asset to the athletics of Erie public schools. TENNIS CHATTER A new era in tennis has started at Academy High School since the in- troduction of Fuller revised tennis rules. According to the new rules which were introduced by Stanley Fuller, a member of the graduating class of 1927, each player must be equipped with roller skates and a fan, the lat- ter to replace the old fashioned racket. The idea is widely approved in Erie schools, and should make a big hit all over the country. Fuller returned from college to this city two years ago and at pres- ent is coaching the Belle Valley Col- lege football team. JOHNNY AT PARK John Grasberger, captain of the Academy 1925 football team, will appear in the next week ' s burlesque at the Park theatre of this city. Many boys are expected to go and see their old chum, and a committee has been formed to meet him, the chairman being Ted Eichhorn. 135 Academy Wins Basketball Cup Hats ofl! To whom? Why, Academy High ' s basketball team, national high School basketball champs of 1936. They won this honor yesterday by defeating Ripley High school, representatives of New York State in the Chicago tourna- ment. 1 For fifteen years Academy has striven to enter the hall of fame in basketball, by representing Pennsyl- vania there in the battle for national honors. This is the first year that any Pennsylvania team ever won the tin cup at Chicago. All Erie is celebrating the victory and C. W. McNary, principal of Academy High, dismissed school for two days. (Saturday and Sunday.) The boys who helped bring the cup to Academy are the sons of the old team of 1926, Thomas, Wesch- ler. Fuller, Grasberger and Pasqual. These men did good work in 1926. but their sons are wonders. During the intermission the Erie boys were treated with great hospi- tality. After the first quarter, they were given hot dogs and pop. Dur- ing the half each ate a big spaghetti dinner followed by an hour of danc- ing. After the third quarter they held a smoker, and then after the game each boy devoured his share of a chicken dinner. The boys left the next day, Febru- ary 35, for Erie. SWEET STARS IN DASH During the annual Milkman ' s track and field meet held m the spacious stadium of Brocton College, the long standing record for the hundred yard dash was broken by Cleno " Gerry " Sweet, of Milky-Way University, when he crossed the line, a winner in the phenomenal time of twenty-two minutes flat. In break- ing the old record of 20 and 1-32 seconds which had stood for tv.o v. ' eeks, he had to nose out Fred Feightner, star dash man of State To get in shape for this meet. Sweet ran every day against the fa- mous race horse, Warhorse, SETS WORLD RECORD Robert Weschler, famous high jumper of Academy in ' 25, has re- cently broken the world ' s high jump record held by Osborne at 6 feet, 8 1 2 inches. In this feat Weschler arose from the ground to a heighth of 6 feet, 10 inches. It has also been stated that Weschler has been thinking of representing America in all events in the Olympics. Page Four RADDER PRESS lune 31, 1936 Tweedles Will Tour Country Those who have been following the career of " Tweedles " in the wilds of Africa and the South Sea Isles will be interested to know that the renowned play will soon tour the United States, starting at Kearsarge. The show will open as soon as a suf- ficient number of tickets has been sold. It is a vivid comedy-drama of the trials of a young couple ' s love which is hindered by the false idea of both families; that the boy is not good enough for the girl, that the girl is not good enough for the boy. " Tweedles " was first presented at Academy High school in 1926. Af- ter the presentation at the school it enjoyed a run at the Community Playhouse, a rare distinction for the high school sketch. Thus en- couraged the players started on their world tour, which has been a howling success. FIND LOST CHORD After ten years of hard work M. J. Luvaas, director of the Academy Girls ' chorus, announced today that he has found the lost chord, which was first reported missing by the chorus of ' 26. This is one of the great accomplishments of this fa- mous leader. Mr. Luvaas is also director of the Boys Glee club of Academy, a pic- ture of which appeared recently in the " Whiz Bang " for being one of the best in the school. Kenneth Schauble, leading tenor of this or- ganization, draws the cover designs for this magazine. The Girls ' Chorus and the Boys ' Glee Club will be combined to make a conglomeration during the next century. DOWN WITH IT The Misses Gertrude and Alice Gaggin have recently gained c ontrol of the Wrigley Chewing Gum Com- pany.

PERSONALS Alderman Rumbol just issued a marriage license to Lauretta O ' Con- nell and Chester Drake. Mr. and Mrs. Drake will spend their honey- moon in Florida. Find Three Guilty A hearing was held today before Judge Milton Brown, in which three men were convicted of smoking cigarettes. They gave their names as Everett Zurn, Pete Rumbol and David Murphy. All were released with a light fine except Everett Zurn, who was ac- cused of smoking v hile driving a car. The odor of smoke was de- tected by bandit chaser " Red " Hos- tettler, who immediately set in pur- suit and captured the criminal. Searching the car, Hostettler found several packs of Camels neatly con- cealed in the upholstery of the car. Two packs of cigarettes were also found on Zurn ' s person, and a faint odor of smoke on his breath. He was held without bail. Of the three padlocks that were placed on the so-called " cigar stores, " one is being protested on the ground that Cubebs are not to- bacco and hence cannot be classed under the ninety-ninth amendment. The question of legality will, in all probability, be taken to the supreme court for settlement. Noted Musician Signs Contract George Yochim, a well known Erie musician, has just signed a contract to conduct the Belle Valley Regi- mental Band. The band, considered one of the best in this section of the country, is made up of the following persons and instruments: Jews harps — Charles Cowley, Chester Drake and Clarence Myers; mouth organs — Carl Guyer, who is also very adept in playing the player piano; Donald Parsons; Joseph Heintzel, and " Pee- wee " Thomas; sweet potato section Alvin Schaffner, Merwin Bogue, Coston Tov. ' ns, and Stanley Mc- Ardle; accordions Leroy Booser, Bert Epp, Irvin Lang, and Edward Berry. Edward will not be able to play for awhile, at least not until his new instrument comes. He took the old one apart to see where the music came from. RUSTERHOLTZ OUT ON BAIL Wallace Rusterholtz was hailed before Judge Milton Brown this morning by Motorcop Joe Heintzel, on a charge of speeding and disturb- ing the peace. 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. He was released on 5c bail by 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 play, Eat no fat, but lots of lean. Stick your head in water to reduce your bean. 136 THOMAS RUMBOL COMPANY BANKRUPT Entire stock of the Thomas-Rum- bol company, declared bankrupt yes- terday by private investigator Har- vey Nelson, will be placed on sale to- The stock included two bushels of potatoes, depleted only by sales made in the last ten years. The firm ' s bankrupt condition has developed, it is thought, as a result of the selling to friends portions of the stock at bargain prices. This failing has been especially marked since Leo Mc- Mahon, former classmate of the two partners, moved into the neighbor- hood five years ago.

W. McNary Secretary Mrs. Dale Hyner Treasurer Mrs. Branch They carried the association along until this year when Mrs. Otto Myer was elected President. They have tried very hard to co-operate with the teachers to m=ke this a worth- v. ' hile organization. If they have failed whose fault is it? Our Superintendent of Schools, Mr. J. C. Diehl, savs that the Parent-Teachers ' Association has a very honorable place in Erie and has told of how it has helped in our schools. Erie is the oldest organization in the state and we had the first P. T. A. Council. Mrs. Kiernan. President of the Pennsylvania, P. T. A., says, " We are very proud of Erie. " The National Congress of Parents and Teachtrs, 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 17, 1897, the Parent-Teachers ' Association was organized under the name of the National Congress of Mothers bv a group of women led by Mrs. Theodore ■W. Burney and Mrs. Phoebe A. Hearst. Pron-iinent 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. We look upon the thorough training of children as the one ho.oe of civilization. The past is irrevocable; the present is difficult to recite; but the future is largely within We, the students of Academy, wish to thank the Parent-Teachers ' Association for their v onderful help in our effort to make Academy High a school to be proud of. Especially are we grateful for the beautiful pictures put in the halls by this organization. We hope that they will continue to aid the students who come after us. DEBATING TEAM A debating class under the able direction of Miss Laura Cramp, was organized a Academy in February, 1926. From a group of thirteen students two teams af threi speakers each were chosen. A triangular debate was held April 14, Academy, East and Central participating Our affirmative met East ' s negative at East and our negative met Central ' s affirmative a Academy. It was the first debate for either of our teams and in both instances we wen 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 limi to win. Plans are being made for a debating class at the beginning of the coniing year and ; brilliant and successful season is anticipated.

Manifestations, exorcisms, if somewhat stilted language. ng-forgotten monk, who, it rlls, transmutations, all were dii =d Pe ed in complete The book v as absorbing to say the least, and my mood was very pro.pitious, 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. 1 had just relapsed into a brown study during which my thoughts were a shame to humanity. 1 was devising ways and means to be revenged on all mankind. 1 could pic- ture myself an avenging demon, smiting whomsoever and wherever 1 pleased, all with the aid of a seemingly insignificant book. A savage joy took hold of me. 1 rose, 1 felt inclined to shout to all Creation " Bow down, you fools. ' An insane desire to prove my power, to grind, to crush, to cause pain wherever I wished, possessed me. 1 strode up and down the room with a short, sharp cries and gutteral mutterings; a fiend incarnate. 1 mouthed inanely, 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, f:rned the pag3s 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 1 knew not what form of retribution to take. Should I, by some mysterious formula or incantation, cause suddsn 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 pla and shrank from such a method. It was life in jeopardy as v.-ell? 1 was but human irt of my plans that any hurt should come Just when it seemed my schemings must go up in smoke, 1 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. 1 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. Had 1 but known the effects, invisibility would have been my last resort, but my sense of bitterness was stronger than any sense of caution, and 1 boldly prepared the preliminary steps to secure the desired results. The directions called for several potent drugs that were rather difficult to obtain. However, 1 had small quantities of them all, with the single exception of one that was singularly effercescent in solution, namely mytoplin. Cast about as 1 would, no solu- tion of this puzzle met my brain until 1 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 drugs. )ii iwirf!ii« ii i 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 1 was in despair. It seeemd that an indefinite postponement was the best I could do. Finally in desperation, 1 de- cided to use another of similar effervescent qualities. 1 quickly measured the ingredients of the potion, stirred them vigorously and quaffed it at one gulp. A racking, tearing pain shot thru me, and a mighty flame enwrapped and consumed my body. 1 felt as if 1 were in the grasp of giant hands; and terrible, disgusting voices rang in my ears. The light grew dim, flickered 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 I rushed to the mirror gazed intently, but to all appearances the room was empty. 1 was invisible eve myself. ind At 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 1 touched immediately assumed the minus quality of my own body, tho this phase of the experiment wore off after a v hile. Part of the decoction had previously been rubbed on my apparel and thus my disappear- ance was complete. Extinguishing the light, 1 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 I could walk thru the crowds of the roof-garden and dance-halls w ithout being seen, then indeed could 1 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 flippant young woman at the ticket window. I 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. 1 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. 1 rushed wildly homeward, un- seen, unnoticed, flew to my room and gave vent to my emotions. Peal after peal of demonical laughter rolled from my lips. I was insane with derision of a world within my grasp. No power on earth could curb me row, for I had the bit between my teeth and vas careening onward, God alone knev. ' whither. Slowly my frenzy subsided and 1 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 v-arned me that day and day ' s activities were near. For some unknown, probably psychological reason, a vague, goomy, forboding crept over me, and I prepared the antidote to Per Dantus ' pre- scription under a harrowing apprehension that lay like a pall over me. I seized it, gulped it down and waited for the same painful experience, but nothing happened. 1 rushed to the mirror but no sign of my presence moved in its clear surface. I cursed the monkish fool for his false pratings, ranted, raved frantically, and then realibzation came like a flash. Due to the substitute for Amytoplin, which was not acted upon by the antidote, I was doomed for the span of my life, to walk the world, apart from men, companionship, all, all, but revenge, FOREVER INVISIBLE. iHanufarturprB Eiip. ppima, GIVE THE WORLD YOUR BEST Don ' t ask has the world been a friend to me But have I to the world been true, ' Tis not w hat you get, but what you give, That makes life worth while to you.

XVlll XIX 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 hewn from the solid rocks of the Nile VaJley, 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. In 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. HAMMERMILL PAPER CO.
