' iFomunrfc The two main ends toward which an editor of an annual strives in behalf of his class, is first, to bring forth a work por- traying the achievements of the year, so vividly, so forcefully, that in years to come the owner delving in it, will live again in that time which makes up the most sublime period of life, his high school days; secondly, to compile a complete record of the glorious deeds accomplished during the last term before we have said farewell. We, the Class of 192 7, upon departing for foreign shores and points afar, do take heartfelt delight in presenting to the coming generations of Academy, this, the seventh volume of the Academe, that it may serve as an inspiration to them in further spreading the glory of our beloved Alma Mater. We have spared neither time nor effort in an honest en- deavor to make this manuscript a fitting history of the projects carried to a most successful conclusion during our last year in this model school. We know that this work is far from being perfect, but we humbly request that you overlook our shortcomings and give us the praise you think is justly due us by placing it among your valued treasures. At this time we feel it is most fitting to take this oppor- tunity to extend our grateful thanks to the faculty, office force, and student body, for the hearty co-operation they have given us in producing the volume which we hope will be the Acme of Annuals. THE EDITOR. t HHHBB K ifiiiration As a sign of gratitude for the great help she has been to all of us, for the work she has done to make this school a better place to be in, and for the interest she has taken in promoting the general welfare of Academy, we respectfully dedicate this volume of the Academe to uaan A. banner ■ Mj H j L Tjpr H-9.C. «vy mao- - B3BBIgia B»UHan A. Satutpr Miss Susan A. Tanner was born in Erie and excepting for short intervals has lived here ever since. She attended Erie High, now Central, from which place she graduated with the honor of " distinction. " Leaving Erie High she resumed her studies at Vassar where she majored in Mathematics. When Miss Tanner left Vassar she took with her an A. B. degree. We next found her teaching Latin and Mathematics in Oil City High School. After two years at the down state school she returned to Erie at which time she began teaching at her former Alma Mater. Superintendent Diehl was at that time principal. When Academy was opened Miss Tanner, with others of the Erie High faculty, was sent to be a teacher in our school. She was appointed assistant principal in May, 1923. This position she has very creditably filled since that time. lEBSEagBI %=- BfeMr-irfi= ai: a Principal C. W. McNary ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL January 10, 1927 Kenneth L. Page, Editor-in-Chief of the Academe, Academy High School, Erie, Pa. My Dear Kenneth: The choice of the Academe staff this year marks an- other distinct forward step in the organization of that body. Until last year the Senior Class each September chose one of their members editor-in-chief, and another business manager of the Academe. Those elected to these positions were students of the highest type and were thoroughly successful in their efforts to produce a good year book. However, they were usually plunged in- to the work without previous experience and with little or no time to think about their problems and to plan accordingly. Last year, as you know, we chose assis- tants to the editor-in-chief and business manager from the Junior Class. You and the Businees Manager for the 1927 Academe have been chosen because, in the opinion of the faculty advisers you surpassed the other assis- tants in ability and initiative. You are to be congrat- ulated for having won these honors. However, every such honor carries its responsibilities. In planning the Academe each year it is the ten- dency of the staff to choose some expensive feature which will make the volume they are to publish excel all previous ones. May I remind you that ours is an institution for mental training. We should, therefore, strive to make our excellence apparent in things of the mind rather than that of the pocketbook. If the stan- dard of the Academe is to be set by its cost then the staff which can raise the most money will produce the best book. If, on the other hand, its standard is to be set by ability and effort put into it the cost in dollars will be relatively unimportant. May I urge you and your staff to keep this thought in mind in laying and developing your plans. I want to congratulate you and every member of the staff, as well as the faculty advisers on the thorough- ness of your plans, as revealed so far, and the prompt- ness in which you are carrying them through. I sincere- ly hope you will be able to publish the very best Aca- deme that has yet appeared. Heartily yours, aTrw.

Year by year we increased our knowledge. We learned the beauty of friendship, the value of the school organization, and the pleasure of working for the advancement of all school activities. The members of our class have distinguished themselves in the fields of sport, in the classroom, and on the platform. Valued highest are the ideals of Academy which will ever urge us on to greater activities. Our Commencement Exercises were held on the evening of February first, nineteen hundred and twenty-seven.

" We did not wait as some classes have, but we began to organize from the very first. During our Freshman, Sopho- more, and Junior years, we had many social gatherings which were successes financially as well as socially. In our Senior year we started immediately to make our class a distinguished one. We held a dance in honor of the Dayton Steele team, after the Dayton Steele-Academy football game. We also sponsored a farewell party in honor of the February Class. During our last year we organized three new clubs, The Radium Club, The Six Footer ' s Club, and The Stamp Club. We feel very proud of our producing one of the finest football teams Academy has ever known. And now as our high school days end it may be truly said that we have made many life-long friends, gained worth while knowledge, and established a firm foundation of character which will make each one of us a stronger and better citizen.

I 53 ar-iM iKii miJiis Class of ' 27 Tune " America the Beautfui " Like ghosts the past four years have gone, As shadoivs, slipped away, And now ive stand with the dawn Of wisdom ' s brightening day. How long it seems, Academy, And yet how short four years Do seem, as Freshmen stood we With many quaking fears! As Sophomores we felt that Fate Had taught us all to know, But as Juniors we saw how great The distance yet to go; And now as Seniors how it seems We have much yet to learn, Our knowledge is but shadowed dreams So we to college turn! Our castles rise above the clouds And pierce the Heaven ' s blue; Unto our teachers, praises loud, We ' ll oive success to you! Out in the world we ' ll weep our trust To serve and do our best, That thou ' ll not be ashamed of us True " Fighting Lions " blest! Oh listen, Class of Twenty-seven, Come let us sing a song; We ' d love to stay, but in the Heavens, The space of time is gone. The friendships formed at Academy Are akin to those Above; Let ' s sing the song, " Blessed be The ties of Fraternal love. " Oh, Academy Hi, to leave thee ne ' er, But duties call beyond, So with the prayer, " Academy for ' er " We sadly will respond. We heap laurels on thee, Academy, As did thy sous of old, And wish thee strength thy foes defy; Wave long thou Blue and Gold! 54 raaagBBiaa And so it is that we again see clearly the working of this great scheme of Life by the all powerful Creator. Even in our group of youth, freshness, and life, that far-reaching hand can- not be opposed. It is an awful and yet a beautiful thing which has come among us and deprived us of beloved friends. Still we should not grieve and mourn for those who have been so elevated, so translated as to return to Him, The Fathsr of All. Rather we should consider their position and be glad. And so, it is not in an attitude of grief and sorrow, but rather in one of hope and faith that we most respectfully dedi- cate this place as a memoriam to those of our class who have returned to their Great Maker. CROSSING THE BAR SUNSET and evening star, And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea. But such a tide as moving seems asleep. Too full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home. Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell. When I embark ; For tho ' from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crossed the bar. — Tennyson. 55 )Br-IM[r-lKlMlMIB I E The Academy Faculty Odd and amusing group, you see, Comprise the Academy Faculty; Assorted sizes, short and tall, Wide and solid, lank and small; A funnier lot there ne ' er could be Than this Academy Faculty. You cannot tell by their looks at all What subject to their lots may fall. One looks as though hers might be style, But English is her special trial. A misfit group, as you may see, Is this Academy Faculty. One ' s tall and thin, upon the ground He runs his lines and angles round, While another short and broad of base, Teaches each star ' s distinctive place. A funnier group, you must admit. The Academy Faculty, to-wit. A man, you ' ll be amazed to hear, With kindly smile and friendly air Is the principal, while one whose brows Show all the gloom the law allows Is just a teacher; strange, you see, This group, the Academy Faculty. Cast in heroic mold, a man Helps girls their Easter hats to plan, While ladies rule in mathematics. In bookkeeping, and shorthand antics. The funniest group you e ' er did see Is our Academy Faculty. 56 jKjEi BE 1 gj MM i li Junior dlaas mULII I I .iJ II IIMH— W MM II rWMIH i mi WWiDm. HISTORY OF JUNIOR CLASS We of the Junior Class, completing the third year of our course at Academy High, feel that it has been a very profitable and successful year. During our Freshman and Sophomore years we observed the actions of the older classes, noting their good qualities and profiting thereby. This year we have shown the results of our observations. Many of Academy ' s best students and athletes have been recruited from our ranks. During the year we have held several delightful parties and social gatherings. To the Seniors whose place we shall fill, and make every effort to fill creditably, we extend our heartiest congratulations and best wishes for the future.

C. Drake, with his two trusty assist- ants, Coach M. V. Wright and Coach H. T. Folkman, have brought to a very successful close a program of athletics which would do credit to a first-class college. These diversified activities have placed Academy well up among the leading athletic centers in the state. Football ended, as only a good season can end, with the Lion well on top of the pile. Six years has it reigned there successfully. Our basketball team, composed mostly of Sophomores, displayed a fine brand of ball but failed to reach the pinnacle. In the tank Academy ' s colors waved triumphant in one phase, being crowned for a second time water polo kings. In swimming second place had to be accepted. Just at the beginning of track everything bids fair for another champion- ship team on the cinder path. Among the new activities we find boxing, wrestling, tumbling, and in- door track. Boxing and wrestling were begun for the express purpose of developing and training men for the gridiron. At Academy this year there have been close to twelve hundred students participating in some kind of athletics. For eight weeks after Thanksgiving Football classes were held in the. fundamentals and technique of the game. Great interest was shown along this line. Over two hundred boys attended the classes the full time. At every available spot — in both gyms, in the halls, on the stage, even in the cafeteria, athletics were promoted. It has been the largest athletic program ever attempted by any Erie school. We have truly " carried on " as ever, developing clean sportsmanship, installing high ideals, and building to make better men and women for to- morrow. 66 Wearers of the " A " Donald Parsons Stanley Fuller Oral Ehrheart John Malthaner Edward Feichtne Michael Ferrare FOOTBALL Walter Temple Richard Speicher William Kinsinge: Charles Kinsingei Russel Weed Howard Flint John Wagner John Travis Arthur Schwartz Eugene Starosta Dave Finlay William Hendricks Michael Ferrare Walter Temple Rocco Cutri BASKETBALL Arthur Wells Milton Harding Ross Brown Howard Stonerook Emerson Johnson Douglas Zuck Fred Monihan Stanley Fuller Fred Knepper Walter Temple Geo.

All united in prophesying a poor season for Academy, but the following story of the football season proves us to be poor prophesiers. On September 25 th the Kane team came to Erie, confident of wiping out the stains of previous defeats. In a driving rain the Blue and Gold launched such a powerful and deceptive attack that the Mountaineers were sent to a bewildering defeat. The team showed so well that the students had visions of impressive victories over Central and East High schools. Score: Academy 27, Kane 0. The following Saturday the squad journeyed to Massilion, Ohio. They met a veteran team which always has been a strong contender for the Buckeye state championship. The team fought hard but was beaten to the tune of 26 to 0. On October 9th Westfield was played in the Stadium. The varsity had no trouble in piling up a large score, then the second and third stringers were sent in. Touchdowns continued to pile up until Coach Drake put in the fourth team. Forty-five Southsiders saw service in this game. The score was: Westfield 1 3, Academy 34. When six more days had elapsed Coach Drake sent his warriors forth to do battle with Jamestown. The Jimtowners had a veteran team which had won four consecutive victories without being scored on. The first quarter ended 6-6; the New Yorkers having scored on a fumble. Our " Four Equestrians " then clapped spurs to their mounts and soon demonstrated their superiority. The final score was: Jamestown 6, Academy 2 7. 72 On October 29th Coach Drake took the " Golden Avalanche " to North Tonawanda where it shone as brilliantly as ever. The field was a mire. However, when our land and sea attacks were stopped, Academy took to the air. When the last of the subs were in the game the New Yorkers managed to score, making the final reckoning, Erie 20, Tonawanda 9. The next Saturday saw us playing Central in the Stadium mud. The Red and Black was loudly touted by the newspapermen. The Lions bucked, passed, and ran themselves into three touchdowns in the first quarter; score, Academy 2 1 , Central 0. After that it was merely a question of how high the score would mount. The team averaged much better than a point a minute until finally in the last quarter the fourth team fell slightly behind in the schedule only running up thirteen points. After the scorers had resharp- ened their pencils and buckled down to work, it was found that the score read: Academy 74, Central 0. The following week the team was idle. November 1 3th dawned clear and cold, a typical football day. How- ever the Stadium field was very treacherous, the result of heavy rains. East High, our opponent, took the offensive in the first quarter and carried the ball to the six inch line with two downs to go. Then, with " Stonewall Academy " ringing over the field and our Alma Mater looking grimly down upon us, our team proved just why they are called the " Lions " by throwing the East backs twice for losses. Fuller then got off a long punt and the danger was over. In the second half Academy opened up with a drive which promised to produce results. The ball was carried to the one-yard line with two minutes to go. But the fates decreed that we should not score and consequently Fuller was held. Score: East, 0, Academy 0. On November 20th Dayton Steele arrived fresh from a decisive victory over East Tech, Scholastic Champions of Cleveland. Steele scored on a forty-yard forward pass in the first two minute of play. All the rest of the game Academy kept threatening to score but Dayton proved to be a fighting team and the threat failed to materialize. Score , Dayton 6, Academy 0. Thanksgiving Day Coach Drake took the Lions to New Castle to play for the Championship of Western Pennsylvania. The score was 6-6 at half time, Speicher scoring Academy ' s touchdown. The last part of the game the team fought hard but could not keep the Castles from scoring twice. That was the margin of victory. Score: New Castle 19, Academy 6. 73 ' iSBiagigigaB A BE3HHE1BB Basketball Personnel M. Victor Wright, Coach Douglas Zuck, Manager Michael Ferrare Guard, Captain Walter Temple Center, Guard Roc co Cutri Center Arthur Wells Forward Emerson Johnson „ Forward Robert Harding Forward Ross Brown Guard Howard Stonerok Guard Basketball History The Academy Basketball team deserves special credit this year for the way in which it has " carried on. " They were not always successful but their never dying spirit was always apparent. The team this year was composed of a group who were unacquainted with the ways of the other fellow. A great handicap which means much to a team. Now, with only one letterman lost through graduation, we may well look forward to a better season next year. December 1 7, Academy opened the season playing the DeMolay. This team, composed of former high school stars, proved too much for our in- experienced team. The final count was DeMolay 31, Academy 26. December 23 found the prodicals returned. A strong alumni team bowed before the varsity by a 40-35 score. A last quarter rally was the means of victory. The next appearance was on January 7 when the Cathedral Latin of Cleveland formed the opposition. In this game of thrills and spills, the Latin team garnered a 20-19 victory after four hard fought quarters. Academy ' s next game, January 14, was with Warren at Warren. We saw our team defeated by a count of 44-1 7. In this game was again evident the lack of experience under fire. On January 1 8 defeat was again taken. This time in the East High Gym. The East team carried off a 35-16 decision to take the day ' s honors. The next game was an afternoon attraction on January 2 1 . Running up a large score in the first half we had little difficulty scoring over the West Millcreek High School team to the tune of 32-25. 76 Following on February 4 Academy played host to Meadville High School. A fast and well played game with our defense tightening when necessary gave us a 2 1 - 1 8 victory. Then came the game when Academy almost rose to supreme heights. In a roaring, furious game on February 8, Central earned a bitterly fought game. When all the smoke of battle had cleared it was found that we lacked one lone point. The game was lost 13-12. February 16 the team journeyed to Westfield. Academy superiority shone in every branch, and hers were the spoils of victory. Westfield was defeated by a score of 43-30. February 22 saw Academy and East fighting it out on the Carney Audi- torium Court. The East aggregation again turned the trick, piling up 42 points to our 24. A few days later, on February 26, Academy and Central met once more. Once more victory slipped away when it was almost in our grasp. A barrage of long shots in the final quarter put a stinging threat into the Central camp, but the final whistle came all too soon. We lacked one double-decker to even the count. The short end of a 26-24 score was our lot. On March 4 we repaid a visit, calling at Meadville for the afternoon. Once more we proved the superior basketeers. A see-saw game found Academy leading 22-19 at the final reckoning. A week later, March 1 1, we met Jamestown on their hardwood. A snappy bunch of players handed us a 29-15 defeat. On March 1 4 Academy finished the season and hung up their suits on top of a 26-19 win over West Millcreek. 77 ' ir-iMi iKiMiMiMis 78 Track Personnel Arthur Schwartz Man: ger Fred Monohan Stanley Fuller Fred Knepper Walter Temple Wesley Ross S.

Several afternoons a week the steady pat-pat of light feet could be heard. Coach Drake was laying founda- tions. A new phase was added to track this year with the inauguration of in- door track. In the early part of December a meet was held in the arena. A large number of contestants representing the high schools of this district was present. Academy easily reigned victorious, garnering eighty-four points to twelve for the runner up. During the winter months a Decathlon, composed of ten events and run off in official Olympic style, was held. Fuller captured honors here with Gemler, Flint, and Kinsinger finishing in the order named. This carried with it the individual track championship of the school. A Decathlon was held shortly afterward for novices only. Willets won after some real competition from our group of athletic youngsters. On April 1 6, by special invitation, our team will compete in the indoor track meet at the Cleveland Public Auditorium. With the experience our. boys have gained they should show to good advantage in this meet. May 1 , will see our men again in the vicinity of Cleveland. They will attend the Lakewood Relay Carnival. The same men who placed second and third for us last year in the three and four mile relay are still with us. Unless Lady Luck is entirely against them they ought to break the tape leading the field this year. 80 May 1 4 we will play host to the high school athletes of this section who take part in the District Meet to be held in the Stadium. For the past four years we have reigned District Three and all expectations are centered in re- peating again. The following Thursday the winners of first and second places in the District Meet will go to the State Tournament at Bucknell College. Academy should be well represented there. Another big track day falls on May 28. On this date Coach Drake takes his charges to participate in the University of Pittsburgh Track and Field Meet. This is Academy ' s first appearance in this meet, and we hope to make a fine showing. The next scene of battle will be the Stadium. On June 4 we will defend our title as City Champions, which we have held for two years. With our already brilliant history we should be successful in this attempt. The Junior High track meet will be held in the Stadium the following Saturday. The deeds of the boys in the Senior High naturally overshadow those of the younger boys, but it is to them we look for the future athletes who will keep the Blue and Gold waving on high.

With the last year ' s team intact the work went on where it was left off. The first appearance of the team was before the Academy-Central foot- ball game. Knepper won handily to be proclaimed city champion. For his efforts he received a silver loving cup presented by the Palace Hardware Company. The team journeyed to Alfred University where they competed in the Interscholastic Meet. Academy won third place. Every man on our team finished to turn the trick. Knepper again led the Academy team. The field was composed of about fifteen teams representing Buffalo, Syracuse, Roches- ter and other places. 83 « J5B1 1 gj IJB I = S gaagagigMKDBi Swimmim Academy realized as successful a season this year in the pool as at any time before We duplicated the feat of the last year ' s aggregation by winning the water polo title and placing second in swimming. Only one more win is necessary to clinch the polo cup permantly. Academy now has two of the ne three legs Academy ' s first dual meet was with Central. Although our boys lost 44- 1 6, they made a creditable showing. The next meet saw Academy take East into count by a 42-18 score. The entire team displayed its true form to carry away the decision. In the second meeting with Central they again took the honors winning 41-19. Again the " Boys in Blue " forced the issue but failed to reach the top. Academy ' s return meet with East gave us second place in the championship race. We took East into camp with a 41-19 victory. Academy ' s superiority was evident in every branch. The last meet of the year was dropped to the University High of Cleveland. The Cleveland lads took home a 38-22 win. In polo Acadiemy handily upheld its title of champ. In the first round, the last game between Academy and Central was to decide the round champion. Academy took the game but it was later found we had played an ineligible man. The game was therefore forfeited. Academy then stepped out in true form, going through the second round without loosing a game. ' Many hard battles were waged but the Blue and Gold always reigned on high. In the playoff series the outcome was never in doubt. Passing and shooting with unerring accuracy we took the first game 8-1, and the second 5-0. A truly enviable record was set for future teams to try for. During the season Acad- emy lost only one polo game. That one was lost to Central, the first game of the year. The team as a whole was regarded as the best polo team organized since the sport was started in Erie. Among the personnel of the team are found many who were rated the best in the city. aaaagBKaBg 8b KHHEBBBB Leaders Class The personnel of the Leader ' s Class is composed of those who show special aptitude in physical education. The class meets once a week for practice. The Leaders always take a very prominent part in the annual gym exhibition.

Tumbling Team Although tumbling is a new sport at Academy it has already shown itself to be popu- lar with the student body. An athletic circus, in which the tumblers took a prominent part, was held in the early part of March. The work of the tumblers at that time was of the highest caliber. In the annual gym exhibition the acrobats again made their presence known by their fine work on the bars as well as on the mats. 38 iiajaagBsaag %sd ( rgamzattnna h i . .wm i .„,n , » lv iw,itJ.Hi j iai ti, i i iMirf!ii- iiMmiiii3iig P " assssmmisssssssBsar (f ¥ff) asmsmsnmmmmsssma. H-T C bav»Tian Debating Club Debating has occupied a more important position at Academy this year than ever before. At the beginning of the year a club was formed which met one period every day under the direction of Miss Laura Cramp, and with valuable assistance from Mr. Dimorier. December 1 Oth Academy ' s Negative Team debated Warren, Pa., on the Volstead Act, winning a two to one decision. On March 1 8th the Affirma- tive Team debated Jamestown, New York, on the same question. In the city ' s triangular meet Academy ' s Affirmative debates Central, while our Negative debates East. A dual debate is to be held April 22nd with East High School of Youngstown, Ohio, and another dual debate is to be staged with Cleveland Heights on the same subject as the triangular de- bates: " Resolved that the surplus in the treasury should be used for strength- ening our national defense. " On May 1 3th South High School of Youngstown, Ohio, will meet our Negative Team at Academy on the subject of the cancellation of the debts of Allied Nations. PERSONNEL OF TEAMS Negative Wallace Rusterholtz Catherine Mong Nelson Hale Affirmative Madeline Applebee David Finlay Virginia Delamater ir-iMn ii iM mniJiiR Trigonometry Those who delve into the higher mathematics find Trigonometry to be a most interesting, though at times a somewhat trying, subject. Trigonome- try as a subject is not only beneficial in school, as the thought seems to be with some, for it has many practical applications as well. These followers of Albitegnius have formed no formal organization or carried on any social program during the year. However with the course laid out, under the able tutelage of Miss Mildred Lockwood, much advance has been made in that ancient science. The first part of the course was entirely text book work. With the fundamentals of Trig well established some more practical lines were taken. The class had special enjoyment trying to solve the mysteries of surveying and the puzzle of the slide-rule.

Each year the standard of the Star is set higher, and each staff tries to make its Star bigger and better than the former ones. During 1926-1927 the first semester staff was composed of:— Alvin Schaffner, managing editor; Charles Edelen, editor; Andrew Kalvelege, sports editor; Raymond Clark, assistant sports editor; LeRoy Boosier, business manager; Barbara Kimmel, society editor and Betty Ormsbee, art editor. This staff twice broke previous circulation records, introduced the linoleum cuts, which were made by Betty Ormsbee and appeared on the front page of each edition, put out a football extra and a humorous " Hotsy Totsy " number. The second semester staff was composed of: Edwin Wolfe, managing editor; June Cole, editor; Claire Cox, business manager; Fred rvorn, assistant business manager; Lowell Cook, sports editor; John Travis, assistant sports editor; Leona Berry, society editor; Douglas Sawdy, music editor; Betty Ormsbee, art editor; Charles Mehler, adver- tising manager; and Charles Macloskey, assistant business manager. With their first issue, they would have undoubtedly broken all the circulating records had there been a sufficient number of papers ordered to supply the demand. At the time this article was written this staff had proved itself capable of continuing the splendid work which the other staffs have performed. 13HEaiMglG3[gg 96 IM3BBEB Le Cercle Francais First Semester Officers Second Semester Constance Knoll President Leonard Pasqualicchio Minnie White Secretary-Treasurer Mary McCrady The French Club has completed one of the fullest, and most successful terms it has ever known. The club held meetings regularly every other Friday during the recitation period, with an occasional meeting after school. In the meetings were given varied programs dealing with French novels, plays, arts, politics, customs, and France as a nation. The club sold views of the School and Stadium from which they ob- tained money to pay for their club cut. A Christmas party was held which proved very delightful. For its motto " Le Cercle Francaise " has chosen, " Bien oir tout rien, ' " Well or nothing at all. " ■Bfet«Eslig1s«l= B J 98 C«C-|iila ' Latin Club History President William Banester Secretary-Treasurer Margaret Kaltenbach For about two years there has been no Latin Club at Academy, but now a group of enthusiastic Latin students have come together, and formed a club which gives fine promises of success. A large roll includes pupils from the upper Latin classes; that is, from the second, third and fourth years. Through the club program we hope to gain a vivid understanding of Roman life, character, and institutions, and to find ourselves possessors of important data which will aid us in handling our daily problems concerning Latin. This, then, is what the Latin Club is trying to accomplish. While there are pleasures which all can enjoy, pleasure is not the main object of the club. We want to further the interest of the student body in Latin, by making the ways and means of learning it as interesting as possible. Plans are being made for either an outdoor real American party, or an indoor Roman banquet. No matter which is held there is real fun in store for all. There is work and pleasure combined in a helpful way in our Latin Club. ir-«Mir-a iMimi3iig 77 %, jMiBBh rt 1( JggMP gaBgMgiBTgaBi Six Foot Club CW- President William Feightner Vice-President Mortimer Dean Secretary Ray Russell The Six Foot Club is one of the most recently developed organizations at Academy, and it has about sixty members no member is less than five feet eleven inches in height. The club is modeled after a similar organization in the Atlanta Technical High School. The object of the organization is to instill in the rising generation the desire to grow tall. The club has held few meetings or social events, but it has proven its worth by supplying the school with guardians of the various capacities. Although the members appear very formidable they are nevertheless blessed, as is the case with all big people, with an amiable intent. We venture to account for this by calling attention to the fact that by reason of their extra- ordinary height they obtain an altitude unattainable by other mortals, where all is clear and bright, and which dark, obscuring clouds cannot reach. From this height they are able to beam down clearly and serenely upon us be- fuddled ordinaries. p i )if nn i» ga m ■ m JBBBBIBK " Hi-Y " Club President Harley Werren Vice President Meredith Southworth Secretary John Steinmetz Treasurer Ray Russell The " Hi-Y " Club has carried through to a finish a full and varied pro- gram this year. A banquet was held at which several well known speakers gave some very interesting talks. Other social events have been held and proven successful. The club has been under the direction of Mr. C. D. Wheeler, Boys ' Work Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. The object of the club is very clearly set forth. The aim is to create and maintain a higher standard of Christian Fel- lowship among the community at large, as well as among their members. Any organization of this sort is always beneficial to a school, and we feel that in this respect the Hi-Yers have done their bit. 103 afelW-i»1 fgia« 104 College Club First Semester Officers Second Semester Marjorie Stitt President Minnie White Minnie White Vice President Eunice Cole Cecilia Metz Secy.-Treas. Cecilia Metz Miss Susan Tanner, Faculty Advisor. Academy Go-To-College Club, which was started three years ago, is for the purpose of acquainting the girls with the necessary preparation for col- lege, the courses offered in the different kinds of colleges, and the customs of college life. There were many interesting programs given at the meetings. During the year a standard design for pins was selected. Marion Cook acted as chairman of the announcements committee, and Eunice Cole as chair- man of the program committee. Throughout the year different girls were asked to assist them. The first of the social activities was held in September — a picnic supper at Miss Tanner ' s cottage. This was followed in December by the banquet in the Y. W. C. A., sponsored by the College Women ' s Club for the clubs of the three high schools. Miss Martha Chamberlain, of Lake Erie College, was speaker at one of the meetings. In the early spring a supper meeting was held and several members told of the colleges which they are planning to attend. Later in the spring a Kid Party was given. 105 rew-MdtaiaM Library Staff Few of us ever stop to consider, or realize the vast importance of a fine library to a high school. It is the intellectual center of the institution in which it is situated. Every student should avail himself of the privilege of using the library to help him in his work. In it are many complete sets of reference volumes, as well as interesting fiction. We are particularly fortunate in having a librarian like Mrs. Binney. What student in search of knowledge has not been assisted along his way by her ready help? With her she has a group of quiet, efficient helpers on her staff. Personal of staff: Mrs. Binney, Librarian; Alice Moore, Marjorie Statton, Marjorie Stitt, Donald Kent and Douglas Sawdey. 106 aaBtagBBHBE iEusir Music Foreword Music at Academy has been a remarkable inspiration for all the school activities. Each year the already long list of Acadamian musicians is added to. This year Academy was fortunate to have added to its faculty Miss Hillyer who has organized a Junior Orchestra and Junior Girls ' Chorus. These two organizations will make themselves felt in the laying of a foundation for the senior orchestra and chorus. Music has grown in other ways also. A class in harmony organized by Mr. Luvass has proven to be very successful. Our Orchestra, Band, Girls Chorus and Boys ' Glee Club have carried on in a true Academy manner, increasing their fame to the glory of the Alma Mater. 107 iEBgggigisaB 108 I flMIMWIM Academy Band Of all our musical organizations the band seems to form the nucleus. During its existance, under the direction of Mr. Owens, the band has grown from almost nothing to the leading high school band in this section. The bandl has very ably assisted at all times with their fine playing. They offered special courage, and backing in all our athletic endeavors. The student body has had several opportunities in assembly periods to hear these musicians and the appreciation shown manifests the true feeling for music at Acade my. Personnel of the Band are:— Profe Di Donald Barnhart, cornet George Carr, clarinet Jack Clark, snare drum Stuard Deaner, tuba William DeNeil, drum Richard Ellsworth Bert Epp, saxaphone Malcolm Farnsworth, clarin.

We find here a musical organization which is well able to fill the place where it is needed. With professor W. S. Owens directing the orchestra in a most effi- cient manner, it has grown rapidly and shown much progress. The orchestra has rendered, by its fine playing, a great deal of assistance to all activities of the school. There have also been several concerts which were most success- ful, and which brought the orchestra praise it truly has earned by its efforts. Personnel: — Prof. W. S.

Starting out about three years ago the Glee Club has advanced, and grown until now we may justly feel proud of it. A great deal of hard work, especially on the part of Mr. Luvaas, the director, has given us as a reward this fine organization. The Glee Club has given several splendid perforr ces. A concert, in conjunction with the Boys Glee Club of Warren High School, was presented in the Academy audi- torium. The large audience was very much impressed by the exceptional work done by our vocalists. Later in the year a delightful musical comedy entitled Cleopatra, was given. This endeavor was a success in all ways. More plans are being made which we most sincerely hope will materialize.

Since then we have grown steadily and the orchestra now has forty members. The size was greatly increased in February by the entrance of the violin classes and those from other schools. The Junior Orchestra made its initial appearance January thirteenth when it played several numbers between the acts of " Yanki San " , an operetta given by the Junior Girls ' Chorus. On March eighth our timid strains were heard in Assembly for the first time and as none of the players suffered stage fright perhaps the stuclent body will have to endure a repetition of the program. If we continue to progress as we have, the Senior Orchestra is going to have some competition. Watch Us!

Hereto- fore musical clubs have been confined to the Senior High. This year, however, under the direction of Miss Hillyer, a chorus consisting of seventh and eighth grade girls was or- ganized. At the first meeting officers were elected: Susan Neiner President Mary Jane Mason Secretary Most of the semester was spent preparing a Japanese operetta, " Yanki San, " which was given early in January. Gay costumes and a colorful stage setting helped to make what we feel was a real credit to the Junior High. We are looking forward to some other activity before the year is over. We hope that the Junior Girls ' Chorus will be a permanent organization in the Junior High. We have derived much enjoyment from it and believe that its educational value has been worth while.

The most popular girl and boy in the Senior Class being chosen. The nominations for the contest were made by ballot by the seniors. Each senior voted for his choice for the most popular girl and boy member of the class. From these the eight highest girls, and eight highest boys were voted on again. By this vote three girls and three boys were eliminated. The student body then chose, by ballot, the winners from this list of five girls and five boys. Barbara Kimmel was voted the most popular girl. Active and willing to do her part in any scholastic or class affair, Barbara has always had a host of friends around her. Her winning way and pleasing personality has given her this title which we all feel she rightly deserves. Harlan Lancaster was voted the most popular boy. Being the president of our class for a year and a half clearly shows his perpetual popularity. " Bud " has been connected with athletics in various ways in the school ' s activi- ties, as well as standing well to the fore in all social events. 121 IgaigfBKDlBai Practice The football game was over, and at the parlor gate, A maiden and a long haired boy were wandering rather late, They talked of goals, and touchdowns but found it rollin ' tame, ' Till Cupid put his nose guard on and butted in the game. Quoth he, " It ' s mighty funny if I can ' t arrange a match " — So he lined the couple up again and made them toe the scratch. The youth was getting nervous ' neath the strain of new born bliss, And he kind-a-thought the scrimmage ought to end up with a kiss — He charged upon the center and he tackled left and right, And the way they held that chair for downs, was simply out of sight. Then he tried an osculation just an amateur affair — But he missed it by a fumble and it landed in mid-air. With firm chin he tried another, and this succeeded fine And he scored an easy touchdown on the crimson two inch line, Then while the two were sitting there, communing soul to soul The parlor droor swung open and father kicked the goal.

Out of the grade school into this, here. Why are your eyes so black and blue? A big Soph stopped me as I stepped thru. What makes the light in them so dim? The stars I saw when hit by him. What makes your forehead so smooth and high? A Junior praised me as I passed by. What makes your cheek like a big red rose? The Seniors all use it, everyone knows. Whence that three-corned smile of bliss? I ' m thinking of lessons I ' d like to miss. What do you do with those arms and hands? So long and dangling they need iron bands. Feet, whence do you come, you darling things? That stampede our halls, when lunch bell rings. How didt you come to be just you? I can ' t see how such a creature grew. But, anyhow, were glad my dear, You ' ve three more years to stay right here. —ANONYMOUS SONNET ON AMBITION Ambition is a strange, unceasing thing Which seldom to its own pleasure brings. Whenever a man, though he becomes a king, Gains his ambition, he most seldom sings. ' Tis not in the order of the world ' s history That man conquer fortune entirely, And gain the realm of heart ' s desire with glory; He must live patiently and truly humbly. But the greatest ambition a man can hold. The one he can realize all his days, Is to help his brother; to carefully mold His own free soul in Christ-like ways. This ambition each man can attain, His soul ' s ambition worthy to remain. WALLACE P. RUSTERHOLTZ PRINCES The Prince of Wales Chas. Mehler The Prince of Wails Geo.

" 128 EBagBGaiBIg AGE AND YOUTH Edgar Guest You are taking fame and fortune, you are young and brave and bold, And I ' m taking friends and friendships — that ' s a sign I ' m getting old; You are taking deeds of valor, high achievement and success, And no doubt you think me foolish, just for talking helpfulness. Well, I ' ve lived for fame and fortune, served them both and struggled through, Used to think them all important, when I was a lad like you; And when some old-fogy muttered words about the joys of friends, I just put him down as crazy; I was seeking nobler ends. Youth must fight and try to conquer, seek new goals at every turn, Not from lips but from experience all the truths of life we learn; But when all the fighting ' s over, the battle ' s lost or won Old men want to count their friendships and the good that they have done. Have we thought and acted kindly, have we helped the times we could? Have we lived among our people as an influence of good? Have we the esteem of others, have we love as well as gold? These are what we find important when at last we ' er getting old. Can you put the spider ' s web back in place that once has been swept away? Can you put the apple back on the bough which fell at your feet today? Can you put the lily-cup back on the stem and cause it to live and grow? Can you mend the butterfly ' s broken wing that you crushed with a hasty blow? Can you put the bloom again on the grape and the grape again on the vine? Can you put the dew-drop back on the flower and make it sparkle and shine? Can you put the petals back on the rose, if you could, would it smell so sweet? Can you put the flour again in the husk and show me the ripened wheat? Can you put the kernel back in the nut and mend the broken shell? Can you put the honey back in the comb and cover with wax each cell? Can you put the perfume back in the vase when once it has sped away? Can you put the corn-silk back on the corn or down on the catkins, say? You think my questions are trifling, lad, let me ask you another one: Can a hasty word be ever unsaid, or a deed unkind be undone? 129 if-IMir «l« MIMHl3i|lfl " OUCH " When a history teacher, to her class one day, Was late, though she was speeding along her way. The pupils decided to conduct their own class, And chose a substitute for the late coming- lass, Surprised and bewildered as she entered the door To find her proxy not only holding the floor But speaking in accents alike measured and low: " It behooves you to liste n, for children, gee whiz, These questions are given in college en- trance quiz. " A chap back at the rear of the room raised his hand And when the dear teacher had told him to stand He said: " Miss teacher, I only want to say I agree with you fully in every way And since we ' ve agreed in our thoughts on the matter, Tis not needful to listen to these kid ' s chatter.

My own waves are the result of much training and hard work. Every girl should carefully consider the value of a perma- nent wave. If there are those of you who wish my receipt for a wave you may have one of the booklets I have written by ap- plying at room 108. With each book goes my best regards and moral support. — MISS KAVENY On Speeding The open country and the broad smooth road is one of the most alluring things I know of. Nothing gives me more pleas- ure than to go down the road with the wind and merrily laugh at the slow world. Every day I can hardly refrain from taking my very life in my hands by exceeding the breakneck speed of fifteen miles per hour. —MISS MONG On Reducing The most important thing a girl has to do is to keep a trim appearance. I have found that plenty of sleep, anything to eat, and no work are the best ways for guard- ing against becoming stout. A plentiful supply of confections, milk, and eggs have been of an immense help to me, and I am sure anyone trying the same will have a success equal to mine. MISS L. C. CRAMP On Hair Bobbing The present day bob is the most at- tractive thing I have ever seen in the way of styles. The extreme boyish bobs are especially fine and nothing will ever take them from us. I say the bob is here to stay. I am very much in favor of bobbing and I shall carry out my idea on myself as soon as possible. In a recent meeting of the faculty a discussion arose and at that time a resolution was unanimously passed that all teachers should do like- wise in the very near future. It was mainly through my efforts at the time that the resolution was passed. —MISS ALICE GAGGIN 133 ■gBTggigigaBi 134 wsBM ma Afterthought As we now complete the Academe we breath an intense and prolonged sigh of relief — not that we feel that we finally have attained our goal: the opposite is true. We are prone to review our past efforts with regret and disappointment — we should have done better. During the compilation of this volume, there were periods when we were consumed with pessimism, when we felt that insuperable obstacles barred further progress, when it seemed a futile task to try again, but due to our friends in the faculty, in the student body and in the school as a whole we were restimulated, and continued our task with renewed vigor. We offer no extenuating arguments for any imperfections which may be found in this book. We only ask that the reader assume a kindly attitude. We have done the best we could, no one can do more. We ask you then to judge the Academe fairly, keeping in mind the incompleteness, the failings, the frailty, and the flaws in everything human. In closing we wish to express our appreciation to H. D. Chapman for the art work he has done in the Academe.

XVII the Doctor Wrote Your Prescription on a Stick of Wood OR the Pottawatomie Indian, the medicine man ' s ten remedies prescribed on a stick of wood probably served well enough. But your avoidance of ailments and your recovery from illness are made easier by the contribution of paper to health ex- tension. Witches ' herbs and the King ' s Touch have given way to the medical book and the prescription pad. Every bottle on your medicine shelf at home speaks to you with a paper label. In the little black jappened box that will be opened when the Doctor has paid his last call, the care of your family is left to a few pieces of paper. Millions of little cellulose fibers stand at attention to serve the physical well-being of you and your loved ones. Paper is one of the Genii dreamed of by the ancient imaginations of the Orient. It lives with us, serves our every need and whim — and we take it for granted.
