From the faculty view point, the Academe is valuable as a part of our per-
manent records. In the procession of graduates and events in high school life
memory of faces slips away. Pictures in the Academe serve to bring recollections
of students when questions arise about them.
As one school year differs little from another so there is a marked similarity
in the various Academes. Yet each staff leaves the stamp of its personality un-
mistakably imprinted upon the pages of its volume. May the editors of this book
always be able to look upon it having real ability and thought behind it, and
real merit in its make up.

High stands our Alma Mater
Overlooking lake and town:
High in our hearts we cherish
Her ideals and fair renown:
Noble in her grace and beauty,
In her service frank and free-
Training lives in truth and duty,
Honor, trust and loyalty.
Then we'll work and fight for her honor,
And we'll work and fight for her fame,
And we'll serve aright in the world's great fight,
We will ever uphold her name,
For her sturdy sons are so valiant,
And her maidens so kind and true,
Oh! we'll "Carry On" till the stars are gone,
For Academy The Gold and Blue!
Strong are the ties that bind us,
And promote our friendship here:
Strong is the pledge of fealty
To our Alma Mater dear,
As we work in track and football,
In debate or classroom test,
We will strive to raise her colors,
Higher far than all the rest.
A Toast to Academy
Arise, here's a toast to the school we love,
Her name and her colors acclaim,
To friendships, and knowledge, and joy she gives,
A toast-to her fortune and fame.
Through life may her sons and her daughters all,
Her standards forever uphold:
And long may her banner unrivaled wave-
A toast-to the Blue and the Gold.

On the following pages will be found a graphic story of what the athletic
world calls Success. If victories, and championships are the only measures, then
we are "Sitting on top of the world." But those engaged in the coaching, and
management of these various teams feel that time alone will tell whether or not
they have reached success. If winning-habits have been formed, if not to fear
hard work, and if co-operation and loyalty have been learned by observing the
rules of training, then great has been the success, and it has all been worth while.
The cups and trophies, emblematic of the several championships won this
year, make a splendid showing in our trophy case-but all too soon they will
become tarnished and forgotten-not so the spirit that made their possession
ours. May the winners of these honors go forth and achieve still greater triumphs
in the years that lie ahead.

During the summer of 1931 Coach Drake molded from the material turning out for football
training, two first teams: one called the Blue team, and the other the Gold team. By the time the
season games were to begin, the Gold team proved to be the better, and therefore was allotted
the harder assignments during the first half-season. At that time the best players from each
team were chosen to constitute a varsity to play the remainder of the schedule. 5
September 12-Academy 345 Wesleyville 0. Academy football started a brilliant season
with the Blue team scoring a victory over Wesleyville High.
September 18-Academy 245 Huntington, West Virginia 6. The Academy Gold team in-
troduced night football into Erie by scoring a victory over the Hrst intersectional foe of '31,
September 19-Academy 65 Ashtabula Harbor, Ohio 0. The Blue team sojourned to Ohio,
and returned with a victory over Ashtabula Harbor High.
September 23-Academy 195 Erie Tech 0. The Blue team played Tech High for the first
time to emerge from a well fought game in victory.
September 26-Academy 75 Jamestown, N. Y. 13. The Gold lads travelled to Jamestown,
and although they fought hard, were unable to click. '
October 3-Academy 405 Chaney Hi, Youngstown, Ohio 7. The Gold team entered the
fray, still feeling the sting of a bitter week-old defeat, determined to gain revenge. And they did!
October 9-Academy 595 Ashtabula, Ohio 0. In this game Coach Drake combined his
Blue and Gold teams much to the dismay of the Ohioans as the score tells. It was Academy's
second victory under the stadium lights.
October 14-Academy 135 Tech Hi, Atlanta, Ga. 24. A varsity team was sent way down
South to Georgia to play the second intersectional tilt under the lights of a Georgian stadium
The varsity fought valiantly, and faithfully in a game full of thrills, but went town in proud
October 24-Academy 85 East Hi. 0. Chapter nine brought us face to face with our tradi-
tional rival from the East Sidef
The day dawned cold and clear, but by game time an icy drizzle set in, interspersed with
rays of a cold sun, to last all afternoon. At 2:30 P. M. a confident and plucky Academy team, with
the odds and newspaper clippings most heavily against them for the first time in many years,
entered the battle against a highly-touted East Hi team.
The East line failed to hold5 the backfield failed to succeed. The Blue and Gold Standard
Bearers completely outsmarted and outplayed the East Hi squad in every department, but for
three quarters failed to score. The final period is football history. The Warriors were forced back
to their own goal, a punt was blocked and converted into a safety for Academy.
The disillusioned, disheartened East team kicked to Captain Watson who dashed through
the entire East eleven for a touchdown. The game ended Academy 8-East 0. The sport critics
were proven wrong, and the boys had again come through in real Academy fashion.
October 30-Academy 135 Parkersburg, West Virginia 7. Another intersectional game
under the Stadium lights was anybody's game until the final gun shot with Academy ahead.
November 6-Academy 205 Farrell, Pa. 0. The Farrell boys came to Erie confident they
could turn the trick. They left confident they could not.
November 14-Academy 345 North Tonawanda, N. Y. 0. The Academy Lions invaded the
Lumberjack territory, returning crowned with laurels of victory.
November 20-Academy 405 Alliance College 0. In Academyfs last night game, next
year's team was seen in action for part of the game against the Polish lads from Cambridge Springs.
November 26-Academy 345 Vincent Hi 7. Turkey day saw the final city series game of
1931. The Vincent Colonels fought valiantly, but the Lions won the city title by a fine victory.
December 4-Academy 05 Fairmont, West Virginia 0. The varsity travelled to West
Virginia for a post season intersectional game. The field was a sea of slush, water and mud. Both
teams slid, slipped and waded to no score.

Academy started the 1931-32 basketball season with a veteran, championship
team practically intact. Victories came in from North and South-outstanding
among the victories was that over North Braddock, last year's champions, which
played its championship team, also practically intact.
But fate decreed Academy should not repeat its brilliant success of the
previous season. Twice it fell valiantly in defeat, by a close margin, before a
powerful Vincent Hi team. After defeating East Hi twice, the Stadium school
stood half-a-game behind the city champion, Vincent.
Of the games played, seventeen ended in victory for the Lion nettersg two
ended in proud defeat. Olfensively the Blue and Gold boys scored 532 points-
defensively they yielded 344 to their opponents. It ended a great season for a

a Track History
Early in the indoor-track season the Academy Team traveled to West
Virginia University to compete in the annual interscholastic track meet. The
Academy team came through in great form, taking iirst place in the meet. The
strong relay team helped us pile up points for the lead, and with the support of
the individuals in the field events, our score climbed above any made by other
On March 26 in the Cleveland Public Auditorium the team took third place
in the Cleveland Athletic Club indoor-track meet, lacking only three tenths of a
point to tie for second place. The team scored as follows:
Devore 1st place-880 6 points
Decker 1st place-440 6 points
880 Relay lst place 6 points
Hanes, Keiper-4th place Pole Vault 1 115 points
1 Mile Relay-5th place M points
Total 19 7f1O points.
On April 29 the first outdoor meet, in which the Academy team participated,
was staged in Ashtabula, with the Ashtabula Harbor team as opponents.
The Smithport Relays, another important outdoor meet, were run on April
30. The Academy team was strong in the runs and was thus enabled to maintain
its usual good standing.
An especially exciting meet was that held among Ashtabula Harbor, Ash-
tabula High, and Academy. As Ashtabula High, and Ashtabula Harbor are
rivals for leadership in their section, it made competition keen.
The novel meet of the season was the Interclass Meet held in our Stadium
with the aid of the fioodlights. Held in the evening of May 14, it proved of great
interest to the sport fans of Erie.
May 21 marked the day of the District Ten championship of the Pennsyl-
vania Interscholastic Athletic Association competition. All the high schools
of this district belonging to this organization were represented by well-drilled
The high schools of the state competed for the championship on 'May 28.
We entered into rivalry with local schools in a regular meet held this year on
June 4. For the first time in local track a team representing Erie Technical High
School was entered, making the usual triangular meet a four team event.

Coach "Danny" XVurzhach and succeeded in winning every meet except the Quadrangular held
in Yincent's poolg however the Quadrangular meet was not one of title competition.

ln the first part of the swimming schedule it was not very hard for the boys to prove their
superiority over their opponents. llowever, in the second part the loss of "Bill" Rollinger greatly
handicapped chances of winning the relay and the 40, but the team came through like the cham-
pion it was, surpassing all competition and finishing with a clean record. lt was the first time in
history that a swimming championship was taken from Strong Vincentg and Academy is proud
of being the tirst to accomplish it.
During the first half of competition in the Quadrangular, "Bill" Rollinger established a
new national record in the 40 by doing it in 18 seconds Hatgclipping three-fifths of a second off
the former record. He also made a new city record in the 100 swim.

It is under the capable direction of Miss Frances Roesch.

her own letter. In previous years teams were organized, and the girls worked
Each individual was graded on the place she took in the different races, and

Junior High Athletics U
The junior High Athletic activities are more or less dimmed by the bright
accomplishment of the Senior section, and so are generally neglected, by the
Academy students. Nevertheless the fine records of the Junior athletes this
year are worthy of special note and praise. The three departments, namely
track, swimming and basketball, all had successful seasons under the careful
coaching of Thomas, Drake, and Wurzbachg and even the coaches noted the in-
crease in the efficiency of the Junior High machine.
The Basketball season was a mixture of triumphs and defeats, and although
no championship resulted, this team's record is the best so far of Academy Junior
Quintet. At the very first of the season the marked improvement in the playing
of the team over that of the other years, attracted the attention of the school.
The team won frequently during the season, and finished with more victories
than defeats. Credit for the team's fine work must be given to Coach Thomas
who was the main cause of the great improvement. At the end of the season the
juniors had won nine games as compared to seven defeats. The schedule follows:-
First Half Second Half
Academy 12-Gridley 14 Academy 35-Burton 10
Academy 26-Burton 5 Academy 17-Wilson 16
Academy 23-Wilson 34 Academy 5-East 15
Academy 10-East 20 Academy 21-Roosevelt 25
Academy 11-Roosevelt 26 Academy 19-Gridley 19
Academy 31-Tech 13
The swimming had a still better season and, like their Senior comrades,
captured the city title for the first time. The first match of the season resulted
in a defeat by East, the champions of last year, but after this the boys had an
easy time. In the next meet they defeated Gridley, and after that trounced East,
and then Gridley again. The latter meet gave the juniors the championship.
The consistent winning of Hinds, Blowachi, and Luther were the chief factors
in determining the championship. All this is due to the fine coaching of " Danny"
In the triangular meet we had to be content with second place, mainly
because " Billy" Hinds, the swimming ace of the Junior squad, was ill and was
unable to participate in the action. It is the first time that the junior title has
been held by an Academy team, and the Juniors are proud of their success.
The Junior track team was also successful in putting a good account of
itself on the past records. Its schedule consisted of the dual meets with the other
Junior High schools, and also of a city meet to be held on June tenth. In all of
these meets the track team did splendid work and lived up to the standards of
The fine work this year in this section is expected to carry over into next
year because only a few members of the team will be lost by promotion.

The motto of Academy High School is " Carry On" and its aim is to have as
many students as possible take part in some worth while extra curricular activity.
The school offers an unusually long list of such opportunities as one will discover
by a glance at the pages of this volume. Modern educators are as vitally interested
in the three "R's" as ever, but they believe that one's leisure hours can make
helpful contributions to education when employed wisely. Academy is making
every effort to encourage those activities that give a wholesome zest to play, and
at the same time tend to enrich life.

Music in Academy has become an important part of the daily life of the
school. livery hour of the day there is music in the building, and without it the
school would seem a dreary, lifeless institution. Its inspiriaton is building an
appreciation of the finer things in life, and our city is reflecting the value of the
years effort devoted to music by its demand for the classics.
Academy is doing more than merely giving its students a high school cclu-
cation, it is giving them a love for the beautiful. Great music is no longer for the
delight of a cultured few, it is being given free to the masses. It is as necessary
for them as air and bread, for it is the spiritual wine of Humanity.

Memoirs of a Student
CWil:h Apologies to Poeb
Once upon a night so dreary, as I went, weak and weary,
Over many an old volume stacked upon my chamber floor,
One I noticed in gold wrapping, and I slowly, nearly napping,
Then began my brain to racking, to think of what it was once moreg
"'Tis but something," I muttered, "of forgotten, useless lore,
Only this and nothing more."
When I at last undid the paper at my desk by lighted taper,
And let my gaze rise slowly from the dreary hardwood floor,
I started, as though in a dream I saw the name of Academe
On a cover of blue supreme-supreme because of days of yore,
Because of happy, ne'er forgotten, wondrous days of yore
That are gone for evermore.
Then with many an eager finger that on the book was wont to linger
I again caressed the pages that told of things passed long before.
Memories I began to sifting, and as my thoughts were lazily drifting,
I felt my spirits lightly lifting, as if once again a senior,
As if once again I lived that short year as seniorg
Year that can come nevermore.
Then the leaves I started turning, all my soul within me burning
When I read accounts of school, and of things it did outpour'
It was as if one was to be lost in a great wide open sea-
A sea of light, a sea of glee, just to feel those things gone o'er.
Those things that had happened so many years before
And shall happen nevermore.
Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the gay September
And the noise of many students, more resembled a great roar.
It was with this bright cheer that I began my senior year-
All the way ahead was clear for me to go on and explore-
Explore school's vast and varied, and also useful storeg
Something I've missed evermore.
And this joyous first semester faded quickly as a gesture
Showing one the way to fair, but distant shores.
Even football season seemed less for our team to be best
And far outclassed the rest as was shown by the score,
Many times they proved their worth by a good decisive scoreg
But this team plays nevermore.
The first was quick but the second faster and soon, after many a time of
The Prom was no bright spot of the future anymore.
In our commencement attire we sat stiff as iron wire
On the stage from which dire and also good news came before-
News of bad events and good had often come beforeg
But I have heard them nevermore.
I turned the last page slowly, sadly-queer it made me feel so badly
To know that they were gone, those lost days of yore,
That though I seek the whole world o'er, from this land to distant shore,
Though I penetrate the core, and if I look for years or more:
If I look for bygone days-those wondrous days of yore
I shall find them nevermore.

Bill Frost and Jimmie Williams, Universal News reporters, were greatly
delighted with the bird's-eye view of the crowded Stadium which was theirs to
enjoy from the elevated press box. Jimmie at length tired of watching the colorful
spectacle below, turned to his friend and said, 'AI still insist, Bill, that Bucky
Turner's being hurt in that accident last night will cost State the game, and the
conference title today. The State team has been built around him all season. He's
the one man Tech is afraid of. Why, without Turner in the line up, State will
look life a fish out of water."
"You're all wrong, Jimmie," Frost replied shaking his head. " I've seen this
game for the last ten years, and I've seen Coach Brannon pull State through to a
victory over greater handicaps than this. He'll win today, too. What I want to
see is how he's going to do it, and just what sort of headwork the old boy will
' The kick off prevented any further exchange of opinions. Jimmie's prophecy
seemed fulfilled. State was decidedly the weaker team, both offensively and
defensively. Time and again, Tech fought its way down the field, its fleet backs
zigzaging through the holes a hard charging line opened for them. The first half
ended with Tech on the long end of a 12-0 score.
"A lot of strategy your great coach pulled that half," Jimmie remarked
Frost pretended not to hear. "Did you see Harris, the guy that's substi-
tuting for Turner, limp off the field?" he asked.
"Sure, what of it?"
"Well, that's Brannon's first piece of strategy," Frost slowly answered,
"because Harris wasn't hurt. He was pretending. I don't quite see the object"-
A roar from the crowd as the two teams again trotted on the field broke off the
rest of his sentence.
Jimmie, who had been anxiously watching the players take their places,
suddenly leaped to his feet and gestured wildly downward. "Am I seeing things,
or isn't that Turnerdown there? See him, Bill, his face all wrapped up in bandages."
Bill already had seen the great halfback. " No, you're not seeing things,"
he snapped, "but you're going to. Wait'll he gets into action."
The second half started with a rush. State received the ball from the kick-off,
and on the first play from scrimmage a white bandaged figure faked carrying the
ball on a criss-cross play through tackle while one of his teammates, State's
shifty little quarterback, sneaked around the end, stepped into the clear, and ran
for a touchdown. Turner place kicked successfully for the extra point. A few
moments later the same play was repeated with the same result. The remainder
of the game was a monotony of nobody getting anywhere. The final score was
13-12 in State's favor.
Bill did not give Jimmie a chance to talk. "You see. Jimmie. Coach Brannon
knew if Turner was in there, that Tech would concentrate on him, and they did,
so much that another back got away twice to score. He knew he couldn't win
without Turner. But Turner is hurt, so he does the next best thing. See that guy
pulling the bandages off his face? That's not Turner, it's Harris. Boy, that's
what I call head work."

Richard Cortney was a tall, well built young man with black hair and brown
eyes. His features were delicate, even effeminate. He had an unusual pallor.
His eyes were those of a caged bird.
This man with the black hair, and the tortured eyes was thinking of suicide.
Why not, he mused? The greatest cowards lived because they were afraid to die.
There was no place in the world for him. He was a hybrid, a freak, an aerial
spirit doomed to wander among leaden-footed men.
He reviewed his life as a drowning person is said to do. Graduating from a
leading college, he had become a clerk in a large shipping firm. He had been ad-
vanced only twice in seven years, and now the blow had falleng he had lost his
job. Among New York's hundreds of unemployed he would never find a position.
Now was the time for action. He shivered.
To die by his own hand-Yet it was not such a hard death. He would lie
on the bed in his little garret. It was easy to remember every detail of the little
unfriendly room. Its pink wall paper, faded and wistful like an old love letter.
The new shiny bureau with its smell of varnish, and the lower drawer that always
stuck. The small narrow bed with the dirty sheets. The gas jet. The long piece
of rubber tubing. The gasg that was it! He would put an end of the tube into his
mouth, and lie on the bed. A soft lethargy would steal slowly over him. He would
die in the middle of a dream, to enter another dream.
As he had been thinking, he had unconsciously wandered to the entrance of
Central Park. It was a wilderness of winding paths and cement benches, with
here and there men, the hulks and wrecks of humanity. It touched his sense of
humor that his last few hours on earth should be spent in the company of misfits
He sat down beside a young vagrant, a long, lean individual with ragged
trousers, and a faded blue shirt several sizes too large for him. They talked.
Life had not been kind to the wanderer. Born in a little town in Ohio, he
became an orphan at the age of eight. His mother died in a train wreck. Soon
his father followed her to the land of no return.
He was put in a building of carbolic acid smell, and harsh voiced matrons.
They were called matrons because they had never been mothers. It was an
orphan asylum. There his young soul, striving for beauty, was twisted and man-
gled in the armor of routine. When every day became an eternity of torture he
ran away. Ever since he had lived in the half-world, between crime and poverty.
Now he was the grotesque shell of what might have been . . . He was not
bitter, he was resigned, with that resignation that is more terrible than any

New desires poured through his veins. After all he was only thirty-one: men

Food For Thought
What Industry Will Do
Two English art students were hailed before
the Head Master because lately they had
spent too much time loitering in the pubs.
Their previous records, however, had been
One of them was plainly discouraged. He
complained because Nature, in granting
genius, had denied it to him while granting it
to many less worthy.
The other, conceited at his own genius, ex-
pressed confidence in a brilliant future, and
laid recent idleness to lack of inspiration.
The Head Master promised to withhold
judgement if both would attend the ,lectures
of Sir joshua Reynolds at the Academy and
memorize anything he said which might help
A few days later, he found the first student
working industriously. "Have you memor-
ized something?" he asked. The young man
replied with a smile, "If you have but mod-
erate abilities, industry will supply their
deficiency. Nothing is denied to well directed
laborg nothing is to be obtained without it."
A little while later, the Head Master was
pleased to find the other student also at work.
"And what have you learned?" he inquired.
The inci ient genius answered a little sheep-
ishly, 'Hiave no faith in your own genius. If
you have great talents, industry will improve
The Devil's Auction
The devil announced once upon a time that
he was thinking of retiring from business and
would offer all of his diabolical inventions for
sale to anyone who would pay the price. On
the day of the sale the tools were all attrac-
tively displayed, in spite of the ugliness of
most of them. Malice, hatred, envy, jealousy,
sensuality, deceit, and all the other instru-
mentalities of evil were spread out, each
marked with its price.
Apart from the rest lay a plain, wedge-
shaped tool, much worn and priced higher
than any of the others. Someone asked the
Devil what it was.
"That's Discouragementf' was the reply.
"Why have you priced such a simple tool
"Because," the Devil answered, "it is more
useful to me than any of the others. I can
pry open and get inside a man's consciousness
with that when I could not get near him with
any of the othersg and when once inside I can
use him in whatever way suits me best. It is
much worn because I have used it on nearly
everybpdy, yet very few know that it belongs
to me. '
And it came to pass that the Devil's price
for Discouragement was so high that it was
never sold. He still owns it and is still using
A Business Woman's Soliloquy
To wed or not to wed, that is the question.
Whether 'tis better, after all, to marry and be
cajoled and bullied hy a husband, or to take
up stenography or clerking, and slave, alas!
for someone else's husband.
To love--to wed-and by a wedding end
the struggles and the thousand petty cares
that "slaves" are heir to !-tis a rare vocation
devoutly to be wished for!
To love-to wed-to wed-perchance di-
vorce! Aye, there's the rub.
For in that dream of bliss what jolts may
come when we have cast aside our little job,
must make us wary.
There's the sorry thought that makes so
many spinsters hesitate. For who would bear
the long, eternal grind, the emp1oyer's jokes
the chief clerk's contumely, the insolence of
the office boy, the smoke of last week's
stogies clinging to the hair when she herself
may quickly and it all by getting married?
Who would not exchange a dingy oiiice for
a kitchenette-a keyboard for a cookstove or
a cradle-but that the dread of something
worse to come after the honeymoon-that life
of chance from whose dark bourne so many
have returned by way of Reno-fills us with
dismay, and makes us rather bear the jobs
we have than fly to evils we know not of?
Thus cowardice makes spinsters of so many.
Hope for the best, get ready for the worst,
and philosophically accept whatever comes.
The Lord compensates those who aren't
important by making them feel important.

'Twas Just Beiore Assembly
CWil:l1 apologies to Clement C. Moorel
'Twas just before assembly, and all through the class
Not a student was stirring, not a lad nor a lass,
The chairs had been placed in positions with care,
So the students could quickly get out of there.
Then from over our heads a signal was rung
And it hardly had ceased 'fore action begung
The class did not wait to hear any more,
But arose in one body, and rushed for the door.
An idly flung chair my clear way now barred,
And my hurrying progress was suddenly marred.
In spite of delays I soon reached the door.
And in much haste I sped over the floor,
But in midst of my flying to catch up with the crowd,
My ear stopped so quickly that I yelled out aloud:
I turned 'round with a jerk to be faced with the fact
That my ear was held tightly by the well known "Mac.
I quivered, and quaked and thought it no use,
But he looked at me sternly, and then turned me loose
And joy filled my heart when I soon gained a seat
That had been kept vacant by a friend, so discreet.
I had long settled down with a yawn and a sigh
For the talk that was given was a long one, and dry,
When all of a sudden there arose such a banter
That I knew in a moment it must be Miss Tanner
Who was coming to put out some wily culprit,
Though I thought that better than having to sit
Disgusted and tired and studious as I.
She looked us all over with critical eye,
But then I got frightened, and wanted to flee-
F rom among all the others she had to choose me.
Escape was too hard, so I had to submit
A martyr for all e'en though I didn't fit.
Across the hall I made ignoble advance
For her pencil was held back poised as a lance.
just shortly after my spirits did fall
For I was sentenced to time in Detention Hall.
As I sauntered out slowly assembly dismissed
And I felt quite bad 'cause I never was missed.
I went to the third class but soon I got "slipped"
And I tried to recall a class that I skipped.
It was only Miss Tanner who voted repentence,
Forgave me and said not to serve out my sentence.
I was again happy, the sky again clear,
But as I wrote on the wall a cloud did appear,
Still it didn't take me long to get into the room,
Escaping both Demmy and a terrible doom.
So I found it is easy to get 'long with them all-
Have fun in the classes, but not in the hall.

John Severn stood on the bridge watching the moon path in the water below.
His head and upper part of his body were leaning over the rail. His thoughts
seemed to rest on just three words, " Ten thousand dollars-ten thousand dollars."
There was no use! How could he get ten thousand dollars by tomorrow? It seemed
that his work for the past twelve years had been futile. 1
He had gone over seas during the war, and like thousands of other healthy
young men, had come back shell-shocked, and ruined in health. He had fought
his way back, and now he owned a very prosperous radio store-prosperous until
his chest had begun to bother him again. Then all his money had gone for cures.
Now a ten-thousand note was due at the bank and he could not pay it. That
meant his store would have to go. After that what was left? He felt that he could
not start all over again, so that was why he was standing on the bridge looking
at the dusky river.
During his younger days, he had been a rather excellent swimmer and diver,
and he thought grimly, this was his last dive.
He had been so absorbed in his morbid thoughts that he had not noticed the
commotion on the shore far below him. A figure ran into the water and with long,
easy strokes was making its way rapidly across the water. Jack shut his eyes and
dived. He was not conscious of anything but a swift rush of air, then a splash
into icy water. Strange as it may seem he came to the surface and caught himself
treading water. At such a serious time he chuckled to himself. He was going to
drown himself and there he was treading water. Try to drown a swimmer like
himself-it could not be done!
The clamor on the shore arrested jack's attention. He saw a rowboat start
out, and he also saw that the man in the boat did not know much about rowing.
A fraction of a second later he saw the figure swimming rapidly toward him.
He heard, "Come back here, Slavoni. Come back or we'll shoot."
Slavoni! The word clicked in his mental register. Nick Slavoni, the child
murderer, whom the police could not catch. Wowie! was this adventure! Suicide
long since forgotten, he started after the Italian. It was an uneven race, because
he had to swim diagonally to reach his would-be victim who was some two hun-
dred feet to the right of him. He was fearfully out of practice, and conscious of a
suffocating feeling in his chest. However, he kept on, and much to his gratifica-
tion, saw he was gaining. The Italian, he saw, was not breathing properly. Thank
heavens, he had learned that in his college days.
Slavoni Cfor as Jack drew closer, he was sure that it was hej was rapidly tiring,
but so was Jack. The rowboat was still as slow as ever and just about half-way
across the stream when the two swimmers were just about a hundred yards from
the shore. Oh, why did they not hurry! Jack knew if Nick reached the shore
before he caught him, it was all off as far as he was concerned because he simply
could not run. He was almost exhausted now. He stretched out his hand as he
made a long stroke and grasped the man by the hair. Then they struggled. For a
while Jack thought the Italian was going to choke him, but he broke the hold,
and grasped the man across the chest and shoulder and held him there. He kept
kicking, and kept himself and his erstwhile enemy on the surface. By this time
the rowboat was quite near. jack yelled, "Hurry up, I can't keep this fellow here
just then Slavoni gave a great jerk and was out of Jack's arms. Like a flash
Jack was after him. This time he dived under water and grabbed the heel of the
rapidly departing figure.
The boat reached Jack who was holding on to the heel for dear life. A black
head came to the surface, and then the police reached over the boat and grasped
it. J ack let go of the foot, and that is all 'he remembered. '

When he awoke, he was in a room lying on a very soft bed. Several people stood
around him. A doctor, a nurse with pretty brown eyes, and a tall man with a
gray mustache where all watching him intently.
It was the latter who spoke, "Young man, you caught him and here's a
check for your work. Twenty-live thousand dollars-not bad for about half an
hour's work, eh."
Jack looked from him to the check and then at the nurse. He smiled. Twenty-
five thousand dollars-store, rest cure and everything.
"His store, his health, and he even might ask the brown-eyed nurse a certain
question." Yes, he decided, he might even do that. Then he went to sleep.
A customer sat down to a table in a smart
restaurant and tied his napkin around his
neck. The manager, scandalized, called a
boy fPaul Dwyerb and said to him:
"You try to make him understand as tac-
fully as possible that that's not done."

front porch when a salesman approached the
gate. He tried to open it but it stuck.
"Mother at home, little one?" he inquired,
before making further attempt to enter the
"Yes sir," replied Lydia, "she's always at
The agent jumped the gate and rang the
door bell. There was no response. He rang
it several times more, and waited. The door
remained closed. Somewhat vexed, he turned
to Lydia and asked, "Didn't you say your
mother was at home?"
"Yes sir, and I'm sure she is," answered the
"Then why in the world doesn't she answer
my ring, I wonder?"

for the space in this year book, and want to congratulate the management of this

the sense that individuals will do their part when called upon, but inactive as a
group, in that we are not organized into the body that we should be. You, as
individuals of the classes of '32, and the classes to follow, can certainly do a lot
in maintaining the spirit of Academy High School by lending your support to
the organization of the Alumni into the sort of body we should have.

Junior Class History
We, the juniors of today, the Seniors of tomorrow, entered the portals of
this mighty school an army, three hundred strong, beset with determination,
and ambition for success for future life. In the three years we have spent here we
have contributed talent in the field of scholarship, and in athletic activities.
In the many enterprises we have undertaken, and achieved, we have always
shown the true school spirit which is ever associated with full fledged Academy
And now fully confident of our abilities, yet wise enough to recognize our
shortcomings, and to attempt to overcome them, we enter next fall upon our last
glorious year at this institution. We hope to accomplish as much as our prede-
cessors, to be a credit to Academy High, and its ideals so that we shall leave an
impressing, and lasting mark of our abilities.

February Class History
We of this February graduating class, number some one hundred and twenty
students. Each one of us has his own individual history of those four years which
we have now completed. There are stored in our memories and our hearts in-
numerable incidents, scenes, and friendships, which we shall cherish throughout
our lives. However, it can scarcely be said that our class history is composed
chiefly of these more or less personal histories, but ofthe many activities in which
we were concerned as a group. V
Althouth we had very little organization the first three years, we made our
presence felt in all departments and activities of our school life from the Freshman
year on. Y
After our organization last year we helped to advance the social activities
of the school, by giving football and holiday dances, by supporting class tag
days, and selling football pennants.
Now, as our happy school days draw to a close, we recall with pride our
illustrious representatives in the Held of athletics, music, scholastics and dramat-
ics. We must acknowledge with deep gratitude ourdebt to the rest of the school
for their splendid co-operation, help and support in making these years a success.

June Class History
With the sincere and joyful pride which comes in the success of achievement,
we, the june Class of 1932, come to the end of our high school days.
Reluctantly we leave the scene of many of the happiest experiences of recent
years. Inspired by the knowledge of the fact that the opportunity to serve, and
lead in the work of the world lies within the grasp of our own young hands, we
aspire to nobler and greater heights. g '
The keynote of our high school years has been progress. What increasing
pride and responsibility we felt as we advanced from Freshman to Sophomore
year, and thence to the dignity of the junior class! Then came the final year and
the strong impulse to make it the most worthwhile and successful of all. As
Seniors we can realize fully the inestimable value of education, and training of
The Senior year has been marked with notable success. The Pursuit of
studies, and the buoyant enthusiasm with which the term's social activities were
carried on have brought a busy, happy school year too swiftly to an end. We
are proud to number in our midst leaders in every Field of school life-particularly
our outstanding scholars and athletes.
Above all, we hope to cherish the many loyal friendships we have won, and
the spirit of co-operation that has brought us to our goal.
As we depart to take our positions of service in the world, we pay to our
own Academy High School the tribute of an unfailing devotion and gratitude for
the joys, benefits, and true "lessons in life" which she has given to us.

TROY, NEW YORK
Engineering, Architecture, Science and Business Administration
HE Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute was established at Troy, New York, in 1824, and
is the oldest school of engineering and science in the United States. Students have
come to it from all of the states and territories of the Union and from thirty-nine foreign
countries. At the present time, there are more than 1600 students enrolled at the school.
Four year courses leading to degrees are oiiered, in Civil, Mechanical, Electrical,
and Chemical Engineering, in Architecture, and in Business Administration,
Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Graduates of the engineering courses are prepared
to take up work in any branch of engineering. Graduates of the course in Architecture are
prepared to practice their profession in any of its branches. Graduates of the course in
Business Administration are prepared for careers in business or for the study of law. Gradu-
ates of the courses in Physics and Chemistry are fitted for research and teaching in these
fields, as well as for practice in many branches of applied science. The course in Biology
prepares for research and teaching, for work in sanitary engineering and public health, and
for the study of medicine and dentistry.
Graduates of any of the above courses may continue their work in the Graduate School
of the Institute. The Master's Degree is conferred upon the satisfactory completion of
one year's work and the Doctor's Degree for three year's work.
The method of instruction is unique and very thorough, and in all departments the
laboratory equipment is unusually complete.
