A Law for Living
The greatest of all Books contains this adage:-
"Cast they bread upon the waters, and it will return
unto thee many fold." Those simple words hold a
truth applicable to any phase of life. '
We came to school to get an education, but do
We put into our school life as much as we take out?
In order to leave school with a sense of having right-
fully secured our knowledge, We must pay for it the
small price of study, attention, discipline and earnest-
But this fundamental law applies not only to
school, but to all of life. We cannot make a person
a steadfast friend without givingfhimi-our confidence,
liking, and respect in return. We cannot earn sub-
stantial wages in business Without putting forth our
best efforts in order to be Worthy of those Wages.
We must give in order to receive.
What do you say? Shall We do what we know
is right, instead of hedging, cheating, and taking the
easier path? Shall We face the! vfforld, head held
high, in the knowledge that our lives are clean and
straight? Shall We make this great law our LAW of
Living? V . '
TABLE CF CONTENTS
No period of life provides happy memories in
such abundance as do the high school years. As a
reminder of the people and incidents of those years
the Academe is invaluable. lt should provide mirth
and stimulate sentiment among Academy people so
long as they have an interest in life.
The Academe Staff carries a real responsibility.
It must faithfully picture life at Academy High so that
those who possess this volume may have memory
served aright. This the Staff has tried to do. We
hope you like the results of their Work.

Forewell from the F ebruory Seniors
As we, the February Class ot l938, bring our
High School career to a close, We look back with
satisfaction upon the years Well spent at Academy.
During these years we have engaged in various
activities, and have provided able leaders in musical
and athletic organizations, as Well as encouraged
high scholastic standing.
Although we did not realize the advantages of
education at the time, We now see how it will help
us to bear the responsibilities which We are about to
assume. We Wish to express our sincere gratitude
to our Principal, assistant principals and teachers tor
the invaluable aid and guidance they have given us.
'As We now take our leave, We feel confident that
our classmen and under-graduates will continue to
uphold the spirit and glory of Academy. We shall
always hold its name and memory in reverence.
We now bid farewell to our school, Academy

Forewell from the lune Seniors
We, the l une class of 1938, take this last opportu-
nity to bid farewell to our Alma Mater, Academy High
School. During our years at Academy, We have been
prominent in scholarship, music, clubs, sports, and
other activities, and have offered many students of
outstanding ability in each field.
Four years ago, We entered Academy, each of us
with a definite goal in mind. We have striven to
attain these goals by the end of our high school lite.
We Wish to thank Mr. McNary, the assistant principals,
the teachers, and the office force for their aid in
guiding us to success.
We have not only acquired an education, but
have also developed in character, and ideals.
Our class leaves Academy with a feeling of
security, knowing that our under-classmen are
capable of carrying on after us.
As all good things must end, so must our high
school life, and so-good-bye, Academy.

A Coming To Terms
I feel awfully small standing here looking up at you, Academy,
But at least I am frank enough to say so.
I do not like sentimentality, and I do not believe you do either,
So l am just going to tell you before I go
Exactly where you stand with me.
I do not say I hate those inspired poetasters
Who sing reverently of Alma Mater's ivy-covered halls.
I merely cannot see their point of view.
To me you are my school.
I do not care if you are ivy-covered or moss-covered or weather-
beaten or solid cement,
You are my school and I respect you and that is all.
Outside you are a well-built, steadfast-looking structure
Standing impressively on the hill with the Stadium before you,
And when I catch sight of you the feeling I get
Could probably be beautifully put into words
By real poets. I only know it is there and always will be.
It lifts my head and makes me feel like living up
To all your principles and ideals.
I am not going to choke back a sob while declaring '
In heavenly speech my loyalty to you-
Too many millions of others have done that-
But I can tell you I really mean every word of what I say here,
And I dare the men of letters to do the same.
Of course there are memories connected with you, too,-
Memories that confuse themselves and mingle
Caesar the Great with Washington and Shakespeare,
Memories that throw helter-shelter, without order,
My pals of years ago with friends to-day,
And pleasant days of busy doings come befOre mo
Faster than I can remember them. And these
Are just a small part of the thing called school spirit,
Which I thought was just a way to get the students to support the
Until I met you and found out what it really is.
In my mind's eye I can see the thousands on thousands of graduates
Pouring out of your doors, each pausing, as I do now,
To thank you for past favors and experience,
And I feel that my word to you is overwhelmed
By this conglomerate praise. So I am not saying,
As the inspired ones say, l'Au revoir" or uGoodbye-but-I-will-
To you, Academy, I just say thanks,
And so long!
- -IANE LEWIS.

just spent an enjoyable year at Academy. Many of
us, having come from other schools, have taken
advantage of the opportunities that the school offers
us for making friends and having a pleasant school life
by joining clubs, and entering the many school
activities. We plan to live up to the standards set
by others and, if possible, set higher standards. We
also aim to make student participation a success.

"Music when soft voices die
Vibrates in the memory."
lf, as our graduates move along their various
paths of life, the echoes of such fine music as is
taught in Academy High School vibrates in their
memories, the school will on this basis alone have
justified its existence.
Music is the noblest of the arts and has a fitting
note for every circumstance in which we may find
ourselves. There are paeans of victory, dirges of the
dead, lyrics for joyous youth. Good music inspires,
revives and enobles life. With these thoughts in
mind my Wish for each graduate of 1938 is expressed
in the following lines from Wordsworth:
"The music in my heart I bore
Long after it was heard no more."

The Academy Senior Orchestra was established a number of years
ago tor the purpose of developing culture, and educating the musically
inclined students. At the present time it is one ot the outstanding musical
organizations ot Academy High School.
The Senior Orchestra is composed mostly of students ot the Senior
High School. Some members have received previous training in the
lunior Orchestra, while others study music outside of school under private
teachers. The group meets every day tor a full period-a period spent in
earnestly developing the musical ability ot the pupil as Well as his musical
The able leader, Mr. W. S. Owen, takes great pains in selecting appro-
priate music, both classical and semi-classical, tor the various functions in
which the organization may engage during the course of the school year.
This excellent training encourages the student to continue his musical
education after leaving High School. lt also forms a solid background
lor further training.
Music is the oldest of the arts. The study and understanding, and ap-
preciation ot this art creates in the student an ability to appreciate, and to
understand the beauty and culture of the finer things of lite found in
nature, paintings, literature, and sculpture.
The Senior Orchestra engages in various activities among which are
assembly programs, school plays, and trips to other schools. The Senior
Orchestra is but one ot the many musical organizations in Academy High
School in which all students musically inclined are able to enroll.

The Academy Band is one of the main contributing forces to the intense
school spirit of Academy High School. lt awakes in the students a feeling
that never could be aroused otherwise.
When Academy's band proudly marches into the Stadium on the even-
ing of an important city-series game, a wave of excitement passes over the
Academy cheering section, as well as over all the sections. The cheers
have more fire and earnestness than they had before the band entered,
and the team itself feels that it just must win.
Those blue and gold uniforms stand for much more than just school
spirit. They represent days and weeks of hard work and training. They
represent ambition for more than just a high school education.
Its capable leader, Mr. W. S. Owen, is largely responsible for the suc-
cess of the band. With his patience and skill he has molded more than an
ordinary high school band. l-le has made an organization that is famous
throughout the state for its fine music and ability.
The band is noted for classical as well as martial music. It presents
splendid programs of cultural music in other schools as well as Academy.
Once a year, it engages in a concert consisting of various types of music.
This function is always looked forward to with eagerness by the Academy
students as well as the music lovers of Erie.
Yes, Academy is very proud to have such a talented and ambitious

The Academy Singers is the foremost of the choral groups at Academy.
Previously known as the A Capella Choir, the Academy Singers is not
only considered one of the best choirs in Pennsylvania, but it also holds
a high place among the choirs of America. lts concerts at New York City,
the Chicago World's Fair of l935, and its network broadcasts upon several
occasions have carried the fame of Academy so far that it has received com-
mendations from the entire nation as well as from countries beyond our
lt is always the main attraction at the annual Spring and Christmas
Concerts given by all the choral groups of the school, and it has repeatedly
reached beyond the expectations of the audience.
The group is composed of the best singing material at Academy. Its
members are carefully selected through elimination contests in which
everyone is eligible to participate. They are chosen not only for their
ability to sing, but also for their true conception of the many details of
music. Many of the Singers had been members of the Girls' Chorus, or
the Boys' Glee Club, nevertheless they, too, were compelled to undergo
the stiff competition of the elimination contests.
Their unstinted loyality, their capacity for work, and their pains-
taking attention to detail has made this success possible. Many former
members cherish memories of their experiences in the choir, and often
return to hear its concerts.

The first Vocal group formed at Academy was the Girls' Chorus.
It was organized by Professor M. I. Luvaas and under his direction achieved
considerable fame as an excellent and artistic organization. All those
who were interested in music were elegible for membership.
Later Professor Luvaas accepted a position at Allegheny College in
Meadville. His position at Academy was filled by Professor C. L. Grender,
under whose direction the chorus became a widely known organization.
It has appeared in various places, and has won many contests.
Later Mr. Gfrender formed the Academy A Cappella Choir, which is
now known as the Academy Singers. Since the organization of this group,
the Chorus has become a stay-at-home choir. Work in the Chorus gives
one a better conception of singing technique. Some of the girls later
become members of the Singers, but more and more of them are making
the Girls' Chorus their career organization. '
Last year the membership became so large that some were eliminated
by competition. At the present time, new members are chosen in the same
Way. With this in effect, the Chorus seems destined to continue its former
excellence and importance.
The Chorus always does beautiful work in the two main events of
the year, the Christmas Concert, and the Spring Choral Concert.

The Cflee Club is composed of Academy boys both from the lunior
and from the Senior High School. This organization serves as an opening
into the musical world for many boys. lf any talent whatsoever exists, its
quality is brought forth by practise, and by harmonizing with other voices.
This practice teaches one to manipulate his vocal chords properly, to
pronounce words correctly, and to enunciate them clearly.
The Glee Club offers to its members their first experience in four part
harmony. They may, if they find they have a talent for part singing, con-
tinue in the Glee Club, or graduate into the Academy Singers. A facility
in singing male harmony parts is an accomplishment which is seldom
wasted after high school years are over. In the past, many members have
gone into Glee Club work in colleges and universities, and some even to
a professional career in choral directing. lt is the hope of the organization
in the future to place more of their singers in a singing society where their
ability will be further used.
Into the minds of the group is instilled an appreciation for the classical
works. From the classics of Bach and other renowned composers, the
singers gain a vivid conception of the pitfalls and hardships of life.
The Cflee Club appears in at least two major events during the school
year: namely, the Christmas Concert, and the Spring Choral Concert.

Drum ond Bugle Corps
The Girls' Drum and Bugle Corps is one of Academy's most brilliant
show pieces. For this group the girls are selected on the basis of physical
fitness, and musical aptitude. lntricate drills are presented by this organi-
zation at each football game.
These drills are carefully designed by Miss Edith Meyette, who has
full charge of the marching tactics for the group. Miss Louise Schweitzer
arranges and directs the music. Many hours of diligent rehearsal are
necessary, before a routine is ready for public performance.
Twelve new piston bugles have been added to the eguipment for the
Drum and Bugle Corps. These new bugles will greatly increase the musical
repertoire of the Corps, since almost every tone of the scale can now be
played. On the old style bugles only four tones of the scale could be
produced, thus limiting the melodies to bugle calls. The Corps hopes to
create a sensation with its new equipment, and Miss Schweitzer is arrang-
ing several new marches for its appearance next fall.
Each year the Corps plans a trip with the football team and this year
the girls went to Canton, Ohio. The audience at Canton was most en-
thusiastic in its praise of the group, and many complimentary remarks
were made about the uniforms.
The Corps also participates in civic affairs, and is invited to march
in many parades. This year, in addition to the annual Memorial Day
parade, the Corps marched in the lubilee for Constitution Day.

lunior Orchestro I
Ever since the lunior Orchestra was organized a number of years
ago, it has progressed steadily until at the present time it is one ot the
most outstanding groups of Academy's lunior High School. The orchestra
meets daily in Room E. These periods are spent doing hard but interesting
work. The director, Miss Louise Schweitzer, is careful in choosing music
that is both cultural and interesting.
This organization is not only educational, but it forms a solid back-
ground tor those pupils who wish to continue their musical activities in
the Senior High School. ln the lunior Orchestra, the student masters the
rudiments of music so when he reaches other organizations, he will be
thoroughly prepared. '
The group does not center its activities in Academy High School
alone, but during the course of a semester the orchestra makes trips to
the various schools of Erie and neighboring towns Where it presents
interesting and colorful programs which are pleasing to every one. Each
spring, the organization presents its spring concert in Academy High
Auditorium. At this time the music lovers of Erie are given an excellent
chance to hear this talented group.
ln its repertoire, the orchestra has not only the old classical master-
pieces, but modern numbers as well. ln this way it can please every
type ot music lover.
Academy is both fortunate and proud in having such an outstanding
lunior Orchestra. lt has spread the School's good name throughout this
section ot the state and has helped to further musical progress in the
city of Erie, also. .
The goal ot all education is to learn how to live
"the more abundant lite." Outside ot a set program
ot studies, the students ot Academy High School
have the opportunity ot expressing their special
talents and abilities in a number ot extra-curricular
activities of which the school is justly proud. Musical
organizations, clubs reflecting all interests and tastes,
publications, such as the Star and the Academe,
furnish the opportunity tor expressing one's in-
dividuality as well as one's ability to cooperate with
others. Capacities for social leadership are developed
which inspire confidence, and prepare one to assume
his proper place in the civic lite of his community.
Year after year finds new activities developing at the
'lhill" school, so it is with pride that we introduce you
to l'Our Activities."

Our Hi-Y Club, in maintaining its purpose, and upholding its plat-
form has been of great value to Academy, due to the fact that it aims for
an allaround development: Spiritually, Mentally, and Physically.
The organization, under the leadership of its officers, its faculty
adviser, Mr. Leamy, and its Y.M.C.A. leaders, Mr. Max Darone and Mr.
Tell Eppley, has completed another successful year of social functioning.
The club sponsored several dances, parties, and other activities. The part
it took in lumbo Night helped to make that event a great success.
Each year the students of Academy look forward to the initiation of
the new Hi-Y members. Lipstick, signs, rolled up pant legs, different
shoes-all will long be remembered as I-li-Y tradition.
The Club has a fine basketball team and a crack rifle team.
The l-li-Y has held many interesting programs at its meetings. Speakers,
entertainers, scavenger and treasure hunts were all part of many well
spent evenings. Under the sponsorship of the Club, Academy students
were able to hear the well-known speaker, Dr. Frank D. Stuty. Academy
students certainly appreciate all that the Hi-Y Club has done for them
in making their high school years a pleasure.

The International Club of Academy High School was formed by the
students of the United States History, World History, and World Problems
classes that they might better acquaint themselves with international
problems and contemporary events. Membership is limited to students
attaining an honor average in one of these subjects. Meetings are held
twice every month. The programs are planned to create further interest
in foreign relations of the United States and other nations. Debates on
subjects of contemporary interest are held. Reports are read by various
members, and these are followed by discussions. This year the program
committee has arranged to have occasionally a speaker from outside the
school. Throughout the year a series of current-affairs' tests have been
given. Each year, a prize is awarded to the member receiving the highest
score in this contest.
Through the club's affiliation with the Student Forum on International
Relations, members correspond with students in foreign countries and
contact similar organizations in the country. A number of members are
sending and receiving letters regularly from friends in other nations.
Besides affording an opportunity for broader study of current history, the
International Club takes a prominent part in the social affairs, as well as
in the school activities. Since the early years of its organization, the lnter-
national Club has had a varied program of social activities among which
are parties, short hikes, and picnics. The International Club offers students
a great opportunity for participation in an extra-curricular activity.

The Girl Reserve slogan "To face life sguarely," and the purpose,
"To find and give the best," expresses for girls, the purpose of the Y.W.C.A.
The movement is attempting, through Work based upon modern
scientific educational methods, to help girls to understand better how to
make right choices, thus the organization earns the right to call itself a
character-building movement. -
The symbol of the Girl Reserves is a triangle within a circle. The
triangle represents the individual club member, the circle, the world in
which she lives. As a girl "Strives to face life squarely, and to find and
to give the best," her triangle expands as her growing self. The points
of her expanding triangle mark out an everwidening circle that symbolizes
the World in which she lives and serves. This symbol is her 'ltrade-mark"
and a daily reminder to herself and others of the way she Wishes to live.

The aim of the Camera Club is to promote interest in photography
among Academy High School students. The club does not necessarily
confine itself to the technicalities of the camera, lout tries to teach a person
how to use one so that pictures of some value may be taken. ln order
to further their cause the members have endeavored to present a program
at most of their meetings.
Sometimes a speaker is engaged who is not necessarily in the business
as a profession, but someone who is interested in photography, who might
have some helpful suggestions and interesting experiences to relate.
The club has made several necessary additions to the "dark room"
in room 14. This enables the club to hold "dark room" studies. These
are in charge of some member of the club who will direct a group of
members in the process of printing and developing films.
ln the same room silhouette studies have been held, and there have
also been some table top experiments made.
During the spring and summer, hikes are taken on which members
search for new subjects. After pictures are printed and developed, they
are brought to the meetings where the qualities are discussed.
The club is not lacking in social activities. lt has an annual party,
an annual picnic, and has sponsored skating parties and dances. The
members enjoy hours of pleasant, helpful, and profitable fun as a reward
for the support they give the club.

The Cosmopolitan Club is the outgrowth of the desire of a group of
students to further their knowledge of foreign languages, and to obtain
information supplementary to that which the classroom provides. The
enthusiastic support with which the movement has been received showed
that the students of Academy had long been desirous of such a society.
The club was not planned as a purely social organization. It has as its
aim the successful combining of social and scholastic life.
All those who have spent a year in the study of a foreign language
are eligible for membership in the club. Each meeting is conducted by
the students of one language group. They present a program which is
informative as well as entertaining. The programs provide an insight into
the "human side" of the languages.
The students were called together early in l937, a constitution was
drawn up, and officers were elected. The club enjoyed remarkable
success, and soon became one of the largest organizations in the school.
lt now has a membership of over one hundred. The members of the club
have added greatly to their knowledge, not only of foreign languages, but
of the history and customs of the foreign countries.
ln the line of social activities, the club has sponsored dances and
private parties. They have twice been successful in their lumbo Nite
The future of the club looks very bright as it is under the leadership
of capable officers, and is composed of students who are vitally interested
in its activities.

The Academy Star is Academy l-ligh's official monthly newspaper,
which offers to its subscribers news of important school events, personals,
and sport flashes. Thanks to the good will of the students in subscribing,
our enterprise has been very successful. V
Our staff of fifteen members is one of the largest the Star has ever
had. Four of these are Page Editors, each of whom has charge of one page,
and is wholly responsible for the planning, editing, and part of the com-
posing of his page. He also must have it in on the dead-line, complete
with "heads," "cuts," and "dummy."
The duty of our several reporters is to gather the current school
gossip. Then there is our Business Manager, who conducts subscription
campaigns, plans entertainments, and in general looks after the Star's
A new position was created this year: that of the Starlet Editor. His
job is to supervise the composing and mimeographing of this weekly
sheet, which is a new feature. Although the Starlet Editor supervises it,
the other staff members help with the actual writing.
Last mentioned, is the position to which' every reporter and editor
aspiresp that of Editor-in-Chief. The staff itself chooses one of its members
to hold this office. This year, however, the election was so close that we
appointed the two leading candidates as co-editors.
Without the support of the student body, the Star could not exist.
We hope that in the future the Staff will have as whole-hearted cooperation
as we have had.

The chief aim of the College Club is to acquaint its members with
the various colleges of the country. Only girls taking academic courses-
that is, those who will be eligible for college after graduation---are members
of this organization. The College Club has been organized for many
years, and is under the able supervision of Miss Susan Tanner, our Assistant
At the beginning of each year, Miss Tanner calls a meeting of the
eligible girls, at which they organize, and elect officers. Officers this
year have been: President, Esther Luther, Vice President, Nancy Seayp
Secretary, lane Lewisy and Treasurer, Ellen Bullard.
Delegates from the various colleges attend the meetings of the Club,
and explain to the girls the requirements, cost, curriculum, and other
advantages of the institution they represent. ln this way each member
is able to choose the college best suited to her chosen vocation. Among
the outstanding delegates who have visited the Club were Miss Penning-
ton, from Flora Stone Mather College of Western Reserve University, and
Miss MacFee, from Lake Erie College. Often these representatives show
moving pictures or slides of their institutions, describe them minutely,
and answer the students' questions.
The College Club also takes part in many social activities, including
the Bridge-Tea Which is given for the benefit of the honor pin fund. The
most recent enterprise was a Varsity Shop conducted at lumbo Night.
The College Club has become a vital organization at Academy, and
we hope it may continue to be so for many years to come.

The Academy Chess Club was started ln the fall of l935 by two
sophomores, Gilbert Michel and Albert Goodrich. The club was a two-
man affair for quite a while, but fortunately, Mr. Detmers, one of Erie's
most ardent chess enthusiasts, became interested and took over the
position of faculty advisor. He mixed chess lectures with algebra and
geometry, and miraculously the membership roll grew by leaps and
bounds. At present there are twenty-two registered members.
As part of its spring activities, the club staged a simultaneous chess
demonstration in which Glenn Hartleb of the Erie Chess Club played
each of the members. The organization holds its club championship each
spring, and a perpetual ladder-tournament in which any player in the club
may challenge the next best player above him. The club also participated
in lumbo Night.
Thus far the Chess Club's tournament record has been very satis-
factory. Albert Goodrich, Academy's captain, and Robert Gillette,
second ranking player, took first and fourth places respectively in the
first lnter-scholastic Chess Tournament. Later, in answer to a challenge
from East, Academy swept the boards, and won a very decisive victory by
the score of seven to one. Many of the club's leading players have had
considerable experience by playing in the Erie Chess Club tournaments
and playing against members of the lamestown, and Warren Chess Clubs.
We believe that the Chess Club has developed not only sport, but also
clearflevel-headed, intelligent thinking and sportsmanship.

The library acguaints one with books and their authors. One familiar
with the library is in close contact with new books and ever changing ideas.
The best magazines published are available and their companionship is
lifelong. The study of library methods is also a valuable experience in
efficiency and cooperation.
Before students are admitted to membership on the Library Staff their
records are reviewed and their general character and attitude are care-
fully considered. Those students who are accepted are given a special
opportunity for service and education, granted by no other school
One student has the following to say regarding this work: 'lln the last
part of the year 1937, l was asked by the Librarian to participate in the
library activities. I readily consented. lt gave me a great deal of pleasure
to know that, while working in the library, l was making it easier for some
student to make preparation for his schoolwork. But it gave me greater
pleasure to know that I had been selected to keep watch over the best
friends a man can have-books. lt is not until one had had an opportunity
to live with books, that he realizes the advantages of having books as his
friends and associates."
Some of the duties of the library staff are charging books, and mag-
azines, slipping, shelving, taking care of overdues and fines, filing cir-
culation, compiling circulation statistics, arranging and filing catalog
cards, pasting pockets and date slips, re-inforcing magazines, learning the
decimal classification and becoming familiar with the use of reference books.
Through this training, the staff members become more poised, alert,
and dependable. A number of former members of the Academy Library
Staff have continued on College Library staffs and are now making such
work their life work. MTS Mary Howe

Februory Senior Senote
The February Senior Senate consisted of one representative from each
row, chosen by the other members of their respective rows. The services
rendered by these Senators can hardly be measured, for they aided the
officers as Well as the advisors in all activities undertaken by the class.
The Home Room attendance for each row was in charge of the Senate,
also attendance at all auditorium exercises. A check up of this was made
with the home room teacher. When the task of selling tickets presented
itself, the Senators procured tickets from the officers, and distributed them
to the students in their own row. They were also responsible for turning
in the money obtained through the sale of tickets. When a call for con-
tributions to the Red Cross, or to the Community Chest was made, the
Senators were again called upon to transact this business. They had
charge of all orders to be taken for pictures and the Star. Reservations
for class parties, picnics, and all social functions were in the hands of
this group, and they in turn worked with the committee in charge.
They make up one of the many democratic features of the organiza-
tion in that each row has direct representation, and without a doubt, we
can say that the Senior Senate is an indespensable organization of any class,
if that class is to function properly.

1 une Senior Senote
The lune Senior Class of 1938 followed the meritorious two-year old
tradition of organizing the class by appointing a Senior Senate. Early in
September of 1937, the class officers were elected and immediately there
followed the designation of a group of representatives. This representative
group, called the Senate, consisted of one boy and one girl from each row
in the Auditorium homeroom. These appointments were made to provide
greater representation for the Whole class in all Senior activities.
The Senators set forth with an enthusiastic spirit. They rendered
their whole-hearted support to the Get-Acguainted Days, held September
30, and October 1, 1937. The plan enjoyed a two-fold success. Not only
were many new friends made by all, but a fine assembly fund was pro-
vided by the money collected for tags.
Rather than assess each Senior for class dues, the Senators sponsored
a tag day, and combined the payment of dues with a class party held
November 8, 1937. The P. T. A. campaign was staged and again their co-
operative spirit was displayed. They gave their full support to fumbo 111
lglyl aiding in the sponsoring of the Saratoga Race Track, and the Auditorium
After their diligent work on the class play, they are set forth with
untiring efforts to assist with the banguet, class day, and finally com-

activities, and it is hoped the "Spirit of '38" will attain new and higher
peaks in each succeeding Senior Class.

The Stage Crew is preeminently a service organization, working with-
out pay and without too much glory, because its members enjoy the work.
Many of the boys belong to the crew year after year, and because of their
experience fill a very important place in the work of the school. Their
work consists of running the stage at all times, for assemblies, plays, dances,
concerts and meetings, or for anything that takes place on the stage that is
in anyway connected with the school.
For entertainment given by those outside the school the boys are
hired to take care of the stage, and only at such times, and they are few,
do they receive any remuneration in terms of cash.
The boys must have some mechanical ability. They must be able
to build new scenery, and they must have a good knowledge of the common
electrical currents. They should understand their work so thoroughly that
they can do it quickly and quietly without supervision.
Cbeying orders without question is the first requirement of a good
stage hand. The Crew is important only when they work whole-heartedly
for the success of the entertainment, whatever it may be, with the under-
standing that the entertainment is the important thing, and that they must
stay in the background at all times. The more efficient they are in doing
their work, the smoother will be the action of the play, if the entertain-
ment be such, and more will be the credit the players will receive.
Most of the boys conform to this idea of service without pay or without

The organization of the cheerleaders, although very small, is an
effective and a necessary group to aid the school in its sporting functions.
The members are selected for their ability and their willingness to
work. ln this capacity only mentally and physically fit boys are chosen
to represent the student body.
The cheerleaders' most important function in the mechanism of the
school is to lead cheers at rallies and at sporting events effectively. It is
necessary for them to attain an aspect of school spirit in order to set an
example, and to create a lively feeling throughout the audience.
The position of cheerleader requires much training and practice.
They not only have to learn cheers, but they need much body expression
and a knowledge of discipline in order to maintain peace and order when-
ever a crowd might become over-excited.
During a game the cheerleaders have to use good judgment in choos-
ing appropriate cheers. Not only do they have to lead their schools, but
they must present a front of friendliness to the opponents. ln spite of
victory or defeat the cheerleaders have to control themselves and offer
their congratulations, or their praises of excellent playing to the victor or
The group appears not only in the sporting department of the school,
but also in the social functions. In the past year they participated in
making lumbo the Third a success. Also, recently, they presented a
dance to the enjoyment of all.

In this book, the Academe Staff offers the finished product of its year'-
long worries, struggles, and responsibilities, its constant service and co-
operation, its perpetual striving for the best. lf you, the readers, find some
enjoyment in this year's Academe, our work has not been in vain.
With an eye to efficiency, the staff this year was divided into three
parts: the Literary Staff, which, under Miss Gertrude Gaggin, was in charge
of the writeups and compilation, the Technical Staff, under Mr. Whiteman,
which supervised the details of arrangement, photography, preparation
for engraving and printing, and the Financial Committee, under Miss
Weschler, which took over the subscription campaign and business enter-
prises. We believe that the staff, thus divided, works more harmoniously
and with less confusion.
During the past year, the staff has experimented with new effects,
dropped some old conventions, adopted many new ideas, and added
much more material. Examples of this are the cover, the novel arrange-
ments, the additions to the feature section, and the many interesting candid
shots. But we have aimed, of course, not to revolutionize our year book
by these changes, only to improve it.
However, the primary value of the book is not its appearance and
arrangement. The real importance of our Annual is simply to record
certain events and associations connected with Academy High in the Year

The Academe Club of Academy High School is one of the most re-
cently organized clubs of the school. It was organized in the spring of
l937. Several meetings were held, but nothing definite was accomplished
until after school began the following September.
The club is made up of students from the lunior class who are interested
in Academy's Year Book. lt is hoped that the members, by working along
with the members of this year's Academe staff, and by observing their
plans and methods of work, will be prepared, the coming year, to put out
the biggest and best annual that Academy has ever published.
The Club, during the early part of the year, did not attempt very
much. The members attended many meetings with the regular staff, and
served on various committees. One of the most important pieces of work
done by the club for the 1938 Academe, was assisting in the subscription
After the l938 Academe dummy was in the hands of the printer, the
Academe Club went to work by itself, elected officers, and appointed
committees, then set to work on a sample annual. This work was carried
on with just as much interest and earnest work as if the members were
putting out the regular Academe.
The work naturally necessitated a great deal of ingenuity, originality,
and initiative, for there was little actual material at hand. The Club feels,
however, that it accomplished much, and awaits with interest the work
for the l939 Academe.

Notionol Honor Society
The Academy Chapter of the National l-lonor Society was organized
this year. The first induction ceremony was held on lanuary l4, 1938.
At this time, eleven February Seniors and twelve lune Seniors were in-
stalled as charter members. Because of the youthfulness of the Chapter,
only Seniors were eligible at first: but from time to time other under class-
men will have the opportunity of becoming members of the Society.
ln order to become a member, the student must excel in four qualities:
scholarship, leadership, service, and character. ln other words, a pupil
must be in the upper third of his class, he must prove himself capable of
taking charge of various functions, he should be willing to serve his
school by joining clubs, musical organizations, and by helping in every
way possible to better the groups, and he must have a good character.
The first of the scholarship honor societies was founded in l900 by
Dr. W. B. Owen, then principal of South Side Academy in Chicago. From
time to time other schools throughout the United States established Chapters.
ln l92l, after much revision, the National Honor Society was founded. At
the present time, there are 1,876 Chapters with a total of over 200,000
members in American Secondary Schools. This organization is somewhat
imitative of Phi Beta Kappa in colleges.
The main reasons why this organization is most attractive are the
l. It defines and sets standards for the ideal high school student.
2. Rank, rather than marks, determines scholastic eligibility.
3. lt is very flexible.
4. lts national scope givees it significance and prestige.
5. It is an educational agency because of its constructive program.
At this writing we' have just finished the most
successful football season since the historic year cf
l93l. What would one hundred enthusiastic boys,
working with five coaches, and backed by the entire
school, do in the rest of the sports on their year's
calendar? The results would indeed be pleasing to
contemplate. But no such ideal setup exists, except-
ing in football. The records you are about to read
were accomplished with various degrees of support
and enthusiasm. The victories Won, and champion-
ships lost, as here recorded, serve as a true barometer
of the school's athletic pulse.
The Trophy of Trophies came back in '36 to roost
in its original nest after a flight of several years. lt
was battered and neglected. May Academy this year
and in years to come feed this bird on the food it
reguireswenthusiasm and school spirit, so that it
will never again take flight.

At the close of the 1937 football season, statistics show that
Academy, this year, had the best team it has had since 1931.
The boys returned from football camp with plenty of hard
training under their belts, and showed it in their first game when
they tripped Warren, Ohio, 6 to O at Warren. To follow this up
the squad polished off Louisville, Kentucky, 14 to O in the Stadium.
Then came the first city series game. East was favored to win, but
the boys went into the game with a grim determination to beat
the Warriors. After a long, hard battle Academy emerged trium-
phant by a 6 to O margin. Playing their next game at Canton,
Ohio, the boys suffered a 13 to O defeat by a very strong eleven.
Two city series games followed their return home. ln the first,
Prep was beaten by a score of 32 to 7, in the second Vincent was
turned back by a 20 to 6 decision. The following week Academy
met lamestown, New York in the Stadium. Although the New York
team put up a good battle they returned home with a score of
22 to O against them. Academy then received its real trip of
the year. Although the score resulting was not so favorable as had
been hoped for, the trip was a very enjoyable one. This event took
them to Huntington, West Virginia, where they were defeated
20 to O. Returning home Academy played its last city series
game: its last game at home, beating a fighting Tech team
6 to O. This victory clinched the city championship for Academy.
Reversing the situation of last year, Academy stormed Watertown
for a 14 to 13 victory in their last game of the season.
This resume shows that Coach Drake, and his assistant Coaches
Thomas, Lewis, De-Tuerk and Townes, from a startingly small per
cent of lettermen, built up a team of gridiron stars.
May the future teams of Academy follow in the footsteps of
the 1937 Football Team.

The Hilltop basketeers, in their '37-'38 season, got off to a
bad start. Their first two games took them to Ambridge and
Ashtabula-they were defeated at both places. Cn December 14,
Academy beat Alliance lunior College on its own hardwood.
The team followed this up by defeating Girard, and a return game
with Ashtabula. The team received defeat at the hands of Farrell,
then went to Greenville, to win, and returned home to tie Ambridge
47-47. At this time the city series, the highlight of basketball
season, began. East defeated the Blue and Gold 30 to 36. We
were defeated by Strong Vincent 27 to 24, and then Tech took
us over 35 to 22. East followed this up by giving the Kelly-men
a 35 to 26 beating. Things looked black for Academy. During
this part of the city series Farrell had beaten us. We, however,
had beaten West Millcreek and Alliance lunior College. After the
defeat at the hands of East the Academy five gave North East a
45 to 22 licking. Then the team began to go places. Strong
Vincent fell under us 44 to 33, Sharpsville fell into the line of our
vanquished foes by a score of 46 to 29, then Tech 37 to 33, fol-
lowed by Girard 58 to 26, and then Edinboro 61 to 22. Again we
met East and won 48 to 37, Greenville fell 45 to 31. The next
victim was Strong Vincent by a score of 33 to 21. We were mo-
mentarily stopped by Sharpsville, losing 28 to 27, but the Blue
and Gold came back to defeat North East 67 to 19. The last game
of the season we lost to Tech 36 to 34. For the season Academy
won 16 games, lost 10 and tied one. Academy's total score was
996 to their opponents 791--a very good record for the Kelly-men.

Entering the season with high hopes, the Water Polo team won
its first game against Tech at East High by a score of 4-O. On
December 2 the team battled in the Tech pool against Vincent.
After three overtime periods, Academy won 2-l. On December
6, the Hilltop boys defeated East at Vincent, 3-O. On December 9
the Blue and Gold met Tech in the only game held in our own
harbor. Here the boys sailed forth with flying colors to a score of
19-7. Then came the storm! On December 13, at Vincent, after
a long hard fight, Academy came home minus the bacon. We
were defeated by a one-tally edge: 3-2 in favor of Vincent.
On December 16 in the final game of the season, we beat East
3-1. But was it the final game? No! Vincent had lost one game
also, and a play-off was held in the neutral East tank, on December
22. The boys went to East hoping to take the championship, but
that pool was a watery grave for Academy. The final score: 2-1
favoring Vincent. So Academy lost the championship by one point,
but only to a very good team and after a hard battle.
The Academy Swimmers, under the able coaching of Mr.
William Rollinger, entered competition for the city series title
on lanuary 13, when they swam against East, defeating them
56-19. The next meet was with Vincent, the Colonels being the
victor. This meet ended with a score of SO-25.
The two following meets, against Tech and East, ended in
victories for the Lions. Again came an exciting meet on February
6 against Vincent, which ended in their favor. On February 13
the swimmers defeated Tech 56-19.
The Academy splashers ended their city series competition by
taking second place in the quadrangular meet at Vincent, February
24. Then the team went to Slippery Rock for the District meet.
Again we lost first place only to our own arch rival, Strong Vincent.
On March ll, the Academy splashers were enroute to State College
for the State meet, where they were very hospitably treated. The
team worked hard the following day to capture fifth place in
At the national meet at Philadelphia, Academy was rep-
resented by two of its swimmers, who won eighth place for their
Alma Mater. This meet brought to a close a very successful
swimming season for Coach Rollinger and his aquatic team.

The track team under the coaching ot L. C. Drake and C. Towns
came out of the 1937 track season with much to their credit. The team
' ' t t t' t lace in the City
started the season by tying Strong Vincen or 1rs p
meet but came out ot the District meet victorious with the high score ot
62V' to the Colonels' 52. They then entered the State meet to win 3rd
place, placing in the high jump, the javehn throw, and in the low hurdles.
Honors were taken once again in the Pitt Relays which were held
indoors at Pitt. In the Alliance meet, and the Triangular meet at Harbor
School the Academy Lions were once again victors with a score of SOM
points and 87 points respectively.
The Varsity Lettermen were: A. Grygo, D. Wiley, A. Polson, F.

Gardner, W. Allamon, S. Nowak, E. Purdue, F. Liebel, R. Meadows,
P. Iernstrom, and P. Karr.
The team started its l938 season with the same type ot success as
last season, leaving records shattered.
The Lion trackers won their first meet when they won the University
ot West Virginia meet. Ot the points won by the various 14 Southern
schools and Academy, Academy Won l9 points winning the meet. The
70 yard hurdle, the high jump, and the 2 5 mile relay records were broken
in this meet by Academy runners.
The team then took second honors in the Pitt meet shattering records
in the low hurdles, and in the relay. Other points were taken in the broad
jump, the high jump, two mile relay.
ln the first indoor Erie Championship meet, which was held in the
Armory, Academy took high honors ending the meet with a score of
Fu-st Row-Johnson, Maclnnes.
Second Row-Lindberg, Loper, Work.
Last year our Tennis Team, which was made up of all new members,
failed to win any trophies, but the capable instruction of Coach Abe Cohen
kept the team from complete disgrace, winning one match and tying
another. However, with the return of all lettermen of last year, and with
Bill Work as a capable substitute, Coach Cohen hopes to have a bigger
and batter season this year than ever before.
In his plans for better teams in the future, the Coach will have two
teams, a Tunior team, and the Varsity, thus giving the younger boys train-
ing before they become members of the Varsity team. That these boys
may not lose interest in their work, since they will have no scheduled
matches of their own, Coach Cohen will substitute them as often as possible
in the games of the varsity team.
The returning lettermen for the l938 season are: Dale Lindberg,
Donald Loper, Bill lohnson, and Bob Maclnnes.

The Academy Golf Team in 1937 was at first composed of Captain Donald Uht, lohn
Mullen, William Lichtenwalter, Charles Hymers, and Roy Nordin. Later Donald Uht and
Roy Nordin graduated, so William Neff filled the vacancy left by Uht.
The 1937 season was the first season that an Academy gclt team came out undefeated.
lt won the City Scholastic Title and County Title, thus bringing the cup to Academy. lts
standing in games was: won, 155 lost, 0. ln the Northwestern Pennsylvania Golf Tourna-
ment CN.W.P.l.A.A.J Donald Uht placed second.
With Mullen, Lichtenwalter, Hymers, and Neff as hcldovers of the championship
team of 1937, prospects for 1938 are very good.
Many individual meets with teams outside the Erie County League are being arranged
and these teams will be met if it is possible to fit them into the schedule.

lumbo Night is a comparatively recent development at
Academy. lt was designed primarily as an annual night of revelry,
fun, and comradeship, which we hoped would continue to be
associated with the name of Academy 1-ligh for many years. But,
after the huge success of lumbo the First in 1935, the idea proved
to be a great aid financially, lumbo the Second followed in 1936,
and after its triumph, this year's show was most eagerly looked
After weeks of preparation, rehearsals, and real hard work,
lumbo the Third came into being on the night of December 3,
1937. A record crowd, including many students of other schools,
attended. All seemed to have a very enjoyable timefeverywhere
were laughing faces and gay chatter.
U Among the many entertainments featured at lumbo the Third
were the Auditorium Show, consisting of music, dancing, and
sketches, the Midway, and the picturesque Pool Show. All sorts
of side shows, from the Chamber of Horrors to the Saratoga Race
Track, were sponsored by the school's various organizations. The
cafeteria was transformed into a dazzling wilderness of gayly
decorated booths, where one might purchase refreshments, school
supplies, and all sorts of knicknacks. The gym was packed with
light-hearted dancers. But all good things must come to an end,
and Jumbo Night was no exception. Slowly the crowd dwindled,
and soon lumbo the Third was a thing of the past.
Looking back at the three lumbo Nights held so far, we believe
that they have proved this annual event to be a memorable and a
worth while one. lt is our sincere hope that Academy students of
future years will see fit to carry out this newly established tradition.
Escape From the City
1 have wandered through the night,
Far, far from the lonesome street
Where the green smoke dims the light
And the bitter seek retreat,
1 have screamed among the stars
And into the night l'll go
Away from urbanity's scars
And far from the bondman's woe,
l'll fly to the side of the moon,
l'll dwell in the luminous bend
Where the stars are chimed in tune
And hearts have never an end,
Beside still waters l'll shout
And the winds shall brace me then
For l've lived my riot out
And l'm crushed for the touch of men.
Farewell to Scuptured 1-learts
Oh what a wreath of starlite in her eyes
And such a glimpse of beauty in her cheeks,
Sweet l-lelen, she is crushed in the divine
And 1'm afraid to steal her from the Greeks.
But Mary, though the stars above her shine
And though she tempts with dimples in her cheeks,
Such winsomeness and charm may yet be mine
And then we'll build upon the marble of the Greeks.

A gala night indeed was that of lanuary 23, 1938, for that was
the date of Academy's Mid-year Prom given by the lune Seniors
of 1938 in honor of the February Seniors. Thanks to the combined
effort, and whole-hearted cooperation of the Prom Committee,
everything was in fine shape and went off quite smoothly.
It was a crisp, snowy night, a fact which added to the general
tingle and zest of the occasion. The couples poured into Rainbow
Gardens, checking their wraps and signing names. They certainly
made a fine appearance-the boys neat and well-groomed, the
girls decked out in their loveliest apparel. The ballroom was
filled with an atmosphere of festivity.
Lee Allen and his Trianon Ballroom Orchestra from Cleveland
furnished the music, which was enjoyed by all, to judge from the
favorable comments heard here and there. From the very first
number, the dancers entered into the spirit of the music, and
whirling couples glided gracefully past, seeming scarcely to
touch the floor. But even dancing becomes a bit tiring after a
while, so between dances there was always time for refreshments
and a little rest.
At intermission the Snow Queen and her attendants were
announced, pictures taken, and the G-rand March held. Time
passed very swiftly, and before we noticed it, Cinderella's clock
had struck, and another Academy Prom was just a memory.
Mr. McNary is our principal,
What more could we want?
He maketh us get clown to work,
He examineth our grades.
Yea, though I walk through the
Valley of E's"
I will fear no flunking,
For if luck art with me
Thy rod and thy staff I'll escape.
I'll prepare my lessons for tomorrow.
Thou prepareth our diplomas before us
In the presence of our fellow-classmates.
Thou anointest my heart with encouragement,
My hope runneth over.
Surely by study and preparation, I'll follow
And dwell in the Academe of !'38" forever.
AN ATHLETIC PRAYER
"Dear God: Help me to be a sport in this little game
of life. I don't ask for any easy place in the line upg play
me anywhere You need me. I only ask for the stuff to give
You IOO per cent of what I've got. If all the hard drives
seem to come my way, I thank You for the compliment.
Help me to remember that You won't ever let anything
come my way that You and I together can't handle. And
help me to take the bad breaks as part of the game. Help
me to understand that the game is full of knots and knocks
and trouble, and make me thankful for them. Help me to
get so that the harder they come the better I like it. And,
O God, help me to always play on the square. No matter
what the other players do, help me to come clean. Help
me to study the Book, so that I'll know the rules, and to
study a lot about the Greatest Player that ever lived, and
other great players. If they found out that the best part of
the game was helping other guys who were out of luck,
help me to find it out too. Help me to be a regular fellow
with the other players.
Finally, O God, if fate seems to uppercut me with
both hands, and I'm laid on the shelf in sickness or old age
or something, help me to take that as part of the game too.
Help me not to whimper or squeal that the game was a
frame-up or that I had a raw deal. When, in the falllng
dusk, I get the final bell, I ask for no lying complimentary
stones, I'd only like to know that You feel that I've been a
good, game guy."
JOE'S FOOTBALL DATES
Joe's First Football Date:
"But Ioey dear, why is that man running that way?
Why, he's running right toward the other team's goal,
Joey! HEY, MISTER! YOU'RE RUNNING TI-IE WRONG
WAY! Huh? oh, they run to each other's goals? How
silly! First down? Why, they're cheating-I distinctly
saw a whole lot of other fellows down long before he was!
Oh, Ioey, look! Wasn't that a shame! He kicked the ball
just a little too high-it went right over the top of the goal
post! But loey, why are we leaving? I wanna see the
rest of the game-it's just getting interesting!"
J oe's Second Football Date:
"6-2-2-l defense-look Ioe, there goes a fake reverse-
2nd and 8-there goes that cherry-picking play-look, a
rush around right end-oh-oh, penalty for offside-here
we go, double wingback formation-lateral to O'Hara-
whoo-thrown for a 5-yard loss! They'll kick for it now-
aw, Ice, why ya leavin' so soon? The game's just started!"
Joe's Third Football Date:
-"but he swiftly evades the opposition and it's a
touchdown! A TOUCHDOWN! Listen to those drums!
Hear the crowd cheering! That's just the way you'll feel,
folks, when you try Itsy-Bitsy Corn Flakes for your break-
I gazed at mountains, purple, clouded: walked
Through quiet forests, rickly green, I heard
The mighty ocean's strong majestic roarg
And felt the force of Winter's wind unseen:
To me, deeply awed, I whispered, "God is great."
But then I heard the laughter of a brook,
Felt summer rainy lush grass beneath my feet,
I touched the downy feather of a bird,
Watched snowy clouds, the angel's trailing gown:
Breathed deeply of the flower's fragrance sweet
'And smiling, softly murmured, "God is good."
LIFE AND DEATH
What is life?
A breath of air-
A gleam of light-
Day and night
What is life?
What is death?
A passing away-
A rest in peace-
Night without day-
A flower or wreath-
What is death?

When "His Marlin was good form
Even as recently in his tory as the settlement of America,
it was considered no disgrace to sign a contract with a
"mark.H Writing was a fine art, confined to a few scriveners,
who "sucked their sustenance, as certain sick people are
said to do, through a quill."
Yet today even the day-laborer declares his income
over his own signature, and immigrants from the most
backward sections of the globe attend night school to form
their names with pencil and pen. VVhat was once a special
art has become a common and unnoticed accomplishment
When writing paper was rare the average man had no
particular need of knowing how to write, for he had nothing
to write upon. When means were invented for making
,large quantities of paper cheaply, writing came into common
experience and "his mark' went out. Z
