This is true in the school, as well as in the business worldg therefore, we, the staff, pre- sent this Academe as a recording of the student activities which have occurred dur- ing the past year. Of course, the Academe is more than a history book. Primarily, it is concerned with the graduating seniors. In the years to come, it will be to this book that the members of the 1942 class will turn, to recall some of the happiest days of their lives. However, the other grades have not been neglected. This year, the Academe has given egual consideration to all clubs and organizations. lt has not dwelt on senior activities alone, but has shown the life of the entire school. It has presented the story of any student from the seventh through the twelfth grades. The staff has taken no little space to pre- sent the members of the faculty to parents and other outside readers, and to explain the functions of Various school organizations. Several Academy groups are more than locally famous, and their officers and mem- bers have been given due recognition in the pages of the Academe. Every student reading through the year- book should learn some interesting new fact about the school. The club section should prove especially helpful to under-graduates looking for new clubs, for different school societies which develop special interests and talents. . Above all else, this yearbook was de- signed, photographed, and written to bring enjoyment to its readers. lt was planned to cover the many phases of Academy life, to be an imperishable record of the years that passed between the morning-we, the seventh graders, went to homeroom, until the night we, the seniors, received our diplomas. ln the final analysis, the Academe is a picture of life at Academy, and, indirectly, a picture of life in Erie. The year 1942 will go down as one of the most eventful periods in history, and this Academe will be a symbol of our changing times. The Schools The American record of free education is the finest in the world. The last census showed that thirty millions of the nation's one hundred and thirty two million citizens are students, that of these, approximately twenty two million attend grade schools, seven mil- lion high schools, and one and a half million, college. Legislation enacted during the past few years will do much to raise these statistics still further. Only in the United States could such a record be established, and only in the United States will such a record be surpassed. What finer thing could be said of any nation, than that every year three hundred thousand of its young people have been able to com- plete the best education the world has to offer? Academy's share of the twenty two million came, almost without exception, from the nine schools pictured on this page. Because, with the passing of the years, memories of high school dim, and memories of grade school disappear, we, of the staff, believed it fitting to include these pictures, as a reminder to Academy students of days gone by, and as a small tribute to the American system. i I 1 hs- -,.1-,. -must - -, ' The llffice Stall No small or easy task is that performed by Academy's efficient and capable Office Staff. Miss Hakel, Miss Waugh, and Miss Weber have a never-ending job, keeping scholastic records of twenty-five hundred students and daily records to show the whereabouts of every pupil. This is only a part of the work of the Qffice Staff. Issuing bulletins, answering telephone calls, checking supplies, and making out the payroll are all tasks vital to the smoothness of Academy's administration. These, and a thousand and one other details are all handled by the Office Staff. lt is their un- tiring work which keeps the school on its toes from 8:30 until 3:00. Illegal absences will always be with us, but they are a minor problem at Academy, where student time is filled with activities which encourage regular attendance. As- semblies, sports, clubs, and movies all make the school day more enjoyable. The latest statistics show that total absences among the student body have been cut to less than three per cent. Under the new attendance system recently inaugurated, boys returning to school after periods of absence obtain admits from Mr. Kelly, while girls go to Miss Lockwood. ln order to secure an admit, it is necessary to bring a legitimate excuse, signed by a parent or guardian. Without an admit, students are unable to return to classes. Although the attendance record was favorable, tardiness was a serious problem at Academy. The l94l-42 report was not up to the usual standards, and during the second semester it was found necessary to provide a detention hall for late-comers. The situation improved. Apparently Academy students had to have it pointed out to them that being on time is a serious matter. Pupils must realize that all tardiness is recorded in school records, and that employers always check on this. Colleges, also, in addition to scholastic standing, are concerned with individual attendance records. r 2 in IIIIIIIIIIISTIIIITIIJII Mr. Ray Hakel, Olivia Waugh, Ruth Weber, Margaret Principal Office Clerk Office Clerk Office Clerk Badger, Pearl Bausc1'iard,Herrnine Blake, Marion Braley, Louella Bright, Jonathan Spanish Geography English Geography Drafting Burgun, Sylvia Cecho, Elizabeth Cochanides, Frances Latin Physical Education English Miss Susan Tanner Assistant Principal Cofini, Nord Crane, Mary Davis, Lynn Demuling, Marie Detmers, Walter Orthagenics Orthagenics Science Speech Mathematics DeTuerk, James Dolce, Louise Drake, Lowell Fiorelli, Joseph Fluegel, Helma Social Studies Music Physical Education Science Social Studies Fritts, Kenneth Graham, Andrew Grender, Obed Gruber, Florence Hale, Nelson Machine Shop Machine Shop Music Commercial Social Studies Hall, Walter Hoffman, Lynette Howe, Mary Hultman, Kenneth Krantz, Frederick Mathematics Social Studies Library Machine Shop Social Studies Kelly, Howard Leamy, John Lewis, V.

Cbb Two years of social studies including United States History or Problems of Democracy. CCD Physical Education through tenth grade. The requirements for graduation are made known to boys and girls as soon as they are allowed to make their own choice regarding the subjects they wish to take. At the same time, students are urged to try to select the field of work which they will pursue after leaving school. lf such a choice is made there is no effort wasted in "shopping around" for classes. Everyone knows the student who is working his way through college, but how many know the student who is working his way through high school? Though many people are not aware of it, hundreds of students are doing just this thing in schools all over the country. The N.Y.A., or National Youth Adminis- tration, is a government agency set up to aid those students who would be unable to secure a good education without some financial help. lt is designed to find or create suitable employment for younger people, proving salaries which, although small, often mean the difference between wasted abilities and a useful career. Academy, through the N.Y.A. program, offers many opportunities to needy pupils. A large percentage of these are employed by members of the faculty, to correct papers, keep reports, and run errands. Most of the others Work in the cafeteria. The boys run the ice cream counters, bring clean trays and dishes to the center aisle, and empty used trays. The girls who work in the cafeteria man- age the candy counter and prepare some of the simpler items on the daily menu. They are fortunate in securing work of this type, which gives invaluable experience in meal planning and food preparation. The assistance the N.Y.A. can offer is necessarily limited, but the result of this help is a finer, more democratic America. Through the efforts of this agency, intelligent students all over the nation, who otherwise would be forced to leave school at an early age, are able to secure as fine an education as money can buy. A score or more of Academy's people have been able to graduate, and will perhaps go on to college, with the help of the N.Y.A. They have been able to partici- pate in the schcol's activities as much as any other student. They have earned their way through school, and as members of Academy High earned the right to own this Academe, and to belong to all of the clubs and organi- zations on the following pages. Ten Favorite Funds The students of Academy may look with pride upon their cafeteria, the largest and one of the best maintained ln the city's school system. Heading the cafeteria staff is Miss E. Fields. She and her co-workers prepare hundreds of meals each day, turning out a staggering amount of pies, salads, and other dishes. An average daily output includes as many as l00 pies C600 piecesl and 300 salads. Each day sees l5 gallons, or approximately 240 bowls of soup, being carried away on cafeteria trays. Statistics show that the daily consump- tion of potatoes averages six bushels, and of milk, 900 half pints. 6027 of these bottles are chocolate, the favorite. Fruit and vegetable juices are not very popular, only l75 glasses a day being sold. Seven hundred twenty people buy a roll every day. Five hundred sixty students buy ice cream, and four hundred eighty buy ice cream suckers. lce cream is the most popular food served, totaling l040 pieces a day, or 5200 in one week. '-omval The favorite among the more substantial dishes is weiners. The usual daily sale of hot dogs is over l800, 49422 with mustard, 492, with catsup, and SQQ plain. A realization of the work necessary to prepare meals for some two thousand people daily should help the students of Academy appreciate the fine service they are really getting. lt should go far in bringing better order and courtesy to the cafeteria. Gafeteria hines One of the situations most criticized by Academy students is the long cafeteria lines. Complaints are made to the effect that waiting to reach the counters often takes much more time than the pupils believe necessary. To relieve this unfavorable situation, students are asked to follow a few simple rules: Do not run from the classroom to the cafeteria, go to the end of the line-do not sneak in with a friend nearer the front. Go at YQUR scheduled lunch period. The only way to solve this problem of ex- cessive waiting is to co-operate fully with the other students and the teachers maintaining cafeteria order. Illuh Program The club program is a relatively new idea in the Public School System of Erie, as it was just five years ago that Academy High School inaugurated its first year of clubs. The man who had a great part in founding the club program at Academy was our former principal, C. W. McNary, who is the present Assistant superintendent of Schools. He appointed Mr. Howard Kelly to supervise the clubs in l9f-37. Mr. Kelly in turn named Mr. Tohn Leamy as new head of the Club program in l94O. The club program was generally re- organized in l94l for the purpose of em- phasizing the activities of the lunior High. The clubs of Academy have proved to be extremely successful, as can be evidenced by the overwhelming enthusiasm which most of the students have shown. A club program in a modern high school has many reasons for its existence. Possibly one of the more important reasons is in the fact that a club presents a form of learning that could not otherwise take place in the average classroom. In a club, the pupil and the teacher function as fellow workers. Many times the pupil can offer information and personal experiences to the club which are sometimes as new to the teacher as to the pupil. The more intimate contact with the teacher engenders a higher morale and a finer school spirit. The atmosphere of the club is less re- strained and more informal than in the class- room. The pupil is striving to learn because he Wants to, not because certain things are required of him. The student is not constantly worrying about what mark he will receive at the end of the school year, which as a result arouses his interest to a higher degree. It has been found that the club system greatly improves the class work of the average student. A club helps to educate the pupil in the art of doing thingsg it often brings out a student's particular abilities, and assists him in finding himself. The poorer student and the timid student in the classroom are encouraged to partici- pate in the various activities of the club. A club helps to give the student self reliance. lt demands the initiative of each student. The club assists students in developing the qualities of leadership and it gives the pupil a chance to hold a responsible position in the governing body of the club. It gives the pupils and teachers a pleasant form of recreation and relaxation from their daily round of study. Probably one of the greatest benefits the student acquires from clubs, is learning to mingle with other people which usually results in the forming of rich friendships, and provides the community with a better citizen, a person who through his companionship with other people is better able to adapt himself to the society in which he lives. Twelve Press Dluh The Press Club, sponsor of the clubs' newspaper and proving ground for future members of the "Star," is one of Academy's charter clubs. Guided by Mr. C. C. Radder, it was organized for those students interested in newspaper work and creative writing. Members of the Press Club are taught the funda- mentals of news writing by studying reviews and editorials, and by hearing various speakers. Their learning is put into practical use in the publication of the bi monthly "l-lilltopperf' This paper, "the voice of the clubs," is devoted exclusively to reporting club activities. The subscribers average approximately one thousand each semester. Elected by the entire group, the heads of the various departments in l94l were: Editor-in-Chief, Riva Agens, Assistant Editors, Paul Leahy and David Tannenbaump Business Manager, Bruce Root, Assistant Business Managers, Tack Kissell and Donald Malthanerp Art Editor, Fred Albrecht, and Secretary, Gloria Ott. Star Staff For twenty-two years the "Star" has been the "Voice of Academy." In this time it has undertaken all sorts of projects which have helped the school, and has built up a substantial circulation. One of its most recent activities was the erection of the "A" during the football season and at Christmas. Engaging actively in school social affairs, the "Star" sponsored several dances and skating parties during the past season. A new plan was inaugurated .M Abs.. Around Table, Left to RightfD.

Among the many duties, members must locate reference and reading material for students and teachers, shelve books, mend books, and check all incoming and outgoing books and material. Any Academy student may become a member of the Staff if he or she can meet the requirements. Library assistants must have a real interest in this work, and an average of "B" or better. The two most experienced members are chosen for after school work as paid assistants. Many staff graduates are working as as- sistants in college and public libraries. o 5 T tn m 'o U, F. 9.

Our comparatively new team, which is one of the finest in or out of the city, belongs to one of the less fre- quented Academy clubs. The club was organized two years ago with Miss H. lohnston as sponsor. Later, Mr. Phillips became the advisor. He selected from the club the team which won the Lake Erie Debating League cup. This year's first team upheld the fine record, and the alternate team did well in its duels with alternate teams of the other schools.

Chief purpose of the club is to teach members the proper etiquette of ushers, and to help at large school functions. They furnish the added comfort of a check room at all important affairs. Officers for the year were: Leroy Valimont, President: lean Heddrick, Vice President: Irene Wosnicki, Secretary, and Marjorie Ryan, Treasurer. Stage Drew The Stage Crew is one of the most important and least noticed of Academy's organizations. Always at hand to assist with assembly programs, concerts, and other auditorium affairs, the Stage Crew has charge of the public address system, spotlights, motion picture projectors, lights, and other mechanical equipment. The boys make and take care of the scenery used at different times during the year. The Stage Crew was organized more than ten years ago, when Mr. McNary appointed Mr. l. Bright supervisor of the stage. Since that time, under Mr. Bright's capable instruction, the stage work has all been done by different crews of boys. Several boys have gone on with this work after leaving school, handling scenery and equipment at different Erie theatres. Working with Mr. Bright this year were Donald Higgins, Manager, Donald Culver, Assistant Manager, and five regular members. Fifteen 3 15 if Row 1fD. Higgins, Mr. Bright, D. Culver.

Officers for the year were: Allan Mierke, President, Definitely for males only, the ever popular Rod and Gun Club is advised by sportsman, Guy Minadeo. Started four years ago and averaging about thirty-five members, this organization has done much to encourage better sportsmanship in the field. Members are taught to handle firearms safely, and carry on the work of the Senior Sportsman's League. They are taught all the little tricks of the hunter and fisherman. The boys go on field trips, learn about training dogs, and study various types of am- munition, guns, and equipment. They study "every good hunter's wardrobe," and learn where to find the best game each season. To manage their affairs during the past year, the boys elected: lack Gintz, President: Dick Wynn, Vice President, and Milton Sont- heimer, Secretary-Treasurer. The program director was Ernie Kuhn.

Mr. Peterson interprets the music, ex- plaining the various themes and moods, and the students learn to recognize these things in future listenings. One of the latest additions to the activities program is Mr. Peterson's Classical Recording Club. Organized during the first semester of 1941, the club proved a welcome addition to the many musical groups at Academy. The main objective of the group is to further appreciation and understanding of classical music. The music studied ranges from symphonic to semi- classical and light-operatic. They also study different instruments, learning at least to distinguish a bassoon from a bass viol. -The supply of school records is used, and members and Randolph Luther, Secretary-Treasurer.

Under the direction of Miss Olsen, the club has helped to better school life in many ways. During fhelipssi year, the club organized the football jaunt to Warren, distributed Christmas baskets, helped preserve order in the cafeteria, and generally did its best to make improved conditions in and around the school.

In 1938 the Cinema Club was organized for juniors and seniors who were interested in motion picture technique. Photography, stage design, acting, costum- ing, lighting and sound recording have been of especial interest. In 1939 the club, with the help of the school, purchased a "movie" Camera, telephoto lenses, titleing Seventeen device, and other equipment. Eight films of parties, athletics, and commencement have been made. This year eleven boys have qualified and received operator's licenses. The club has charge of all the school's audio-visual equipment.

Dheerleaders' Dluh The Cheerleaders' Club was organized several years ago with Mr. R. N. Hale as faculty advisor. lt proved so popular that a junior club was also organized the following year. Each year, eight of the best cheerleaders are chosen from the senior club, which averages over fifty members. These leaders are present at all rallies, assemblies, and games. The cheerleaders for the 1941- 1942 season were: Robert Wholehan, David McFiggan, loyce Rogers, Lois Schlecht, Wilma DeVette, lune Mattison, Robert Smith, Robert Slater, and Lion, Richard Seyler. The Cheerleaders' Clubs meet every week sep- arately, and the time is devoted to learning the funda- mentals of cheerleading. They also develop new cheers, spending a great deal of time writing and learning to lead the school's new battle cries. During the past year, members have had a great deal of success Writing "Academy" words to fit college and military music. These proved especially popular at the band rallies in the auditorium. The officers for the past year were: Robert Whole- han, President, Robert Smith, Vice President, lohn Rinderle, Secretary, and Lucille McDonald, Treasurer. Besides promoting school spirit at the games, the cheerleaders sponsored several successful dances and skating parties. Row IGA. Mierke, H. Lynch, H. Fritts, G. Klenk, I. Iervis, Mr, Hall, R.

The girls study different types of dress for different types of character, and learn the proper Nineteen etiquette for different occasions-dates, parties, dances, and other social affairs. Most important, the girls are given a chance to develop poise and charm, doing it in a natural manner that makes it possible for them to have real social presence.

Senior Problems One of the largest groups in the school, the Senior Problems Club, was organized in the fall of 1941. First intended to include only a small number of students, the club proved so popular that plans had to be rapidly expanded. Over one third of the February class joined the club during the first semester, and it became an ideal place to discuss problems of the class. The group acted as a sort of policy making board for the seniors, having much to do with the class party and play. ln addition to working on group problems, the club also dealt with the difficulties confronting the individual student before and after graduation. The advantages of different colleges were shown, college life was discussed thoroughly, and the needs of the future were studied. lob qualifications were explained, and different vocations were examined closely. Speaking generally, the Senior Problems Club proved itself one of the most useful in the school. Officers, elected by the entire club, were: Daniel Rader, President: lean Buseck, Vice President, Marge Stod- dart, Secretary, and Mr. Joseph Zipper, faculty advisor. nluniur Camera Dlub Due to the appeal that photography has for young and old, this club was one of the popular groups among the Junior High students. With Miss Mabel Weir as sponsor the lunior Camera Club chose Don Liebel, President, Mildred Boyce, Secretary and Nancy Gronnett, Treasurer. The aims of the club were to teach the mem- bers to know and understand their cameras, to be able to take good pictures, to process films and to make good prints. During this past year the club members constructed pin hole cameras, had lessons in tinting pictures, learned to take silhouettes, and delved into the use of filters. They soon realized the magnitude of the field which they had already found to be fascinating. Row 1fM. Gardner, I. Vitelli, L. Strand, A. lohnson, B. McKeen, V. Schugart, M. Rodriguiz, K. Kauffmann.

Ulef Ulllb The Clef Club, organized when the club program u was introduced at Academy, has grown tremendously in size and popularity. lt is now one of the largest groups of this type in the school. Members of the organization are interested chiefly in learning to conduct community singing. Also interested in discriminating between good and bad popular music, they use their dues to buy their own copy, and expect some day to have a complete library of popular music. Officers were: Ruth Randecker, President, Margaret lEddy, Vice President, Geraldine Randall, Treasurerg Gloria Dyke, Secretary, Mrs. Dolce, Sponsor. these often puzzling questions. One of the older Academy organizations, this club endeavors to solve the problems of girls about to go to college. Each club period, members report on different colleges, telling about entrance requirements, expenses, ratings, and social life. This year Mr. McNary spoke to the members of the club, his subject being "College for Girls." Organized by Miss Tanner and now advised by Miss Lockwood, the College Club is one of the school's most popular groups.

At the beginning of the 1930 school year, Mr. O. L. Grender was appointed conductor, and has held this post for the past twelve years. Meeting every day during the first period, the Glee Club is, to many boys, a stepping stone to the Choir. This year, the Glee Club sang the usual round of concerts, appearing at several schools, and at the Academy Christmas and Spring concerts. The annual party with Mrs. Dolce's Girls' Chorus was the highlight of the club's social activities. To provide another chance for a get together, the boys also sponsored a dance with the co operation of the Chorus. The business affairs of the Glee Club were handled by Robert Chaffee, Presidentg Lewbert Rastatter, Vice President, Amos Church, Treasurerg and George Swanson, Secretary. Girls' llhurus First singing organization ever sponsored by the Academy faculty, the Girls' Chorus, began its career under the direction of Morton If Luvaas. " Upon his departure for Allegheny College, Mr. O. L. Grender became director and held this position until 1940, when Mrs. Dolce was appointed conductor. Largest of the school's musical groups, the chorus has ninety members. They sing everything from Bach to Berlin. The girls sing at the Christmas and Spring concerts, at schools near and not so near, and participate in the city's annual Spring Music Festival. They have gained a wide reputation as an artistically excellent group. ln the future the girls will wear the new, black robes which they recently purchased. Twenty-three Row lil. Rosequist, I.

The Dhnir Probably the best known high school group in America, the Academy A Capella Choir is under the direction of Professor O. L. Grender. Mr. W. E. Demorier has been the Business Manager during the Choir's entire career, and is now assisted by Mr. Scrafford. Made up of sixty four exceptional student voices selected from the entire school body, the Choir has brought Academy nation wide fame. It has been the custom of the Choir to spend a week every spring, traveling about the country. Last year's trip included concerts at Rochester, Schenectady, Boston, and Concord, and at Colgate and Kueka colleges. This spring, the Choir planned concerts at various army camps, beinglimited on distance by tire and gasoline shortages. Most important of the school activities of the group are the annual Christmas and Spring concerts. These concerts, presented by the Choir with the assistance of the Girls' Chorus and the Boys' Glee Club, are important events in the city's musical calendar.

Senior llrchestra The members ot the Senior Orchestra make up one of the oldest musical organiza- tions at Academy Organized shortly after Academy was constructed, the director at that time was Mr. R. Rastatter. Later, Mr. William Owens took charge, and he remained as conductor until 1940. At that time, Mrs. Dolce was appointed directress, and under her able . leadership, the orchestra has been making great strides in playing ability and general musicianship. During the semester, the members of this organization gain valuable experience in group playing, and learn much about the individual instruments. lt has long been the policy ot the school to lend the students some of the instruments tor private practice, thus furthering their interest and ability. Each year, in conjunction with the Band, the Orchestra presents a concert ot both classical and modern music. In the spring, the group makes a tour to some point of interest in the musical World, an opera at Cleveland or perhaps a visit to the Eastman School of Music at Rochester. The officers this year were: loan Lans- berry, Presidentg Betty Mix, Vice President, Geraldine Snow, Treasurer, and William Horn, Secretary. llrum and Bugle Dnrps One of the show pieces ot Academy High, the Girls' Drum and Bugle Corps, is to be seen at all Academy football games, and all civic events. Under the direction ot Miss Edith Meyette, drill mistress, and Mrs. Louise Dolce, musical instructress, the Corps plays in all city parades, and at all holiday celebrations. As a result ot these activities, they lose many ot their vacations and evenings. They take annual trips with the football team, hold a yearly banquet, and sponsor several skating parties and dances.

Here the students meet the problems of group playing, something not found in the usual beginning instrumental classes. They have, by the time they are promoted to the older group, received a rich experience which makes them better musicians, and consequently, the backbone of a better band for Academy. This will be evident in the years to come. Officers for this past year were: Donald Rettger, President, William Bronston, Vice President, and Constance lohnson, Secretary-Treasurer. Row IAC. York, I.

It has functioned successfully ever since. This year, Roberta Martin, President, Robert Holmes, Vice President, Mary Mueller, Secretary-Treasurer, and Mr. Peterson, director, have continued to carry out the usual schedule for the orchestra. The first purpose of the lunior Orchestra is to provide a rich experience in the playing of fine or- chestral music. ln addition to this, there are other influences in pleasant social contacts and in a balancing of the student's personality through his activity in a cultural subject. Twenty-six Band Tactics This year's band went a long way in making its work attractive to stadium spectators. Classed as the best in several years, the band put special emphasis on formations, using many never tried before by the school. Most spectacular performance of the year came at the East Academy game. After a fanfare at the north goal line, the band marched down the field spelling out the word Lfl-O N. From this, they went into the AHS formation, playing the Victory Song. Swinging into a large USA, they played "The Stars and Stripes Forever." Reaching the south goal, they counter marched up the field in a huge letter E, stopping at the fifty yard line to play "East Side, West Side," as a compliment to the East players. Marching to the Academy sidelines in a block A formation, the maneuvers closed with the playing of the School Song. The new policy has found favor with all. lt is a matter of pride with the band boys, who are endeavoring to bring their work up to the level of the best high school bands in the country. ' Row 1fS.

The group was organized by Miss VanGeem at the beginning of the current school year, and officers were: Donald Paulson, President, Beverly Schwindt, Vice Presidentg Phyllis Nagle, Secretary. The Sign Painters are among the few at Academy who could claim an actual part ln the national defense program before the war, for they were actively engaged during most of the first semester, in making Christmas menus for the sailors in the United States Navy.

They are working toward this goal under the capable direction of Mr. Whiteman, who is developing in them the "press photographers technique" of picture-taking. Pictures are taken by the members at various social functions, and all around the school. This stimulates the embryonic photographer in taking action pictures and also broadens his experience. This club offers excellent opportunity for students of Academy who wish to learn more about the field of press photography. asher. Second Row: L. Hiller, A. Ostrowski, E. Dout, F. Fluerek, R.

In the high school world, Where girls are more concerned with social achievements than with domestic duties, this club is a novelty in two senses of the word. The girls crochet, knit and embroider. They make tufted and braided rugs, worked in beautiful and difficult designs. Most of the equipment is brought to school by the girls, although Miss Brown is always willing to help. The members also make attractive and inexpensive jewelry, using macaroni, nail polish, colored discs, waxed acrons, and other simple materials. They design many colorful and useful novelties for their homes. movie monitors Thirty-two students fill the required stations for the three motion picture periods. These students act as cashiers, and assist at the doors in maintaining an orderly program. A high scholastic rating is reguired of members of this group.

Twenty- nine Another of Academy's year old groups, the Safe Driver Club, was organized in September of 1941 by Mr. McLean. lts objectives center on highway safety, including knowledge of automobiles, safety rules, and the important points in the state Motor Vehicle Code. With an eye on National Defense, the most economic ways of using a car are also demonstrated. Most of the members are Hust below the age limit for state driving examinations and use club periods studying the vehicle code or the mechanics of an automobile. Approximately ten members will be eligible for the tests in February, and most of the other people will be ready in Iune.

They came into existence about the time when Academy students assumed the duties and responsibilities of their own government. There are one hundred and twelve monitorsgfsixteen monitors on duty each period. Two monitors are stationed at every door to check on people entering or leaving the building from 8:30 in the morning until 3:00 in the afternoon. Applications for positions as monitors are made at the beginning of each semester. When chosen and assigned to posts, they hold their positions as long as they prove trustworthy. These monitors offer invaluable assistance during tire drills and will no doubt prove very helpful in air raid drills as well. They check students leaving at noon time through special lunch passes. They are frequently drafted for extra work by teachers. They maintain discipline in the halls between periods when classes are changing. They act as hosts and guides when strangers enter the building. These monitors are identified by special badges which they wear while on duty. Each post is numbered so that a monitor can be easily located. The work of the monitor is voluntary and students, as well as faculty members, sincerely appreciate what they are doing for their school. Thirty- one Row 1-l. Allen, I, I. Kramer, G, Delamater, M.

Girl Reserves One of the most popular clubs in the school is the Academy chapter of the Girl Reserves.- The Girl Reserves are the younger members of the Y. W. C. A. Their organization originated during the first World War at that critical time when young girls were considered the reserve force of the nation and the leaders of the future. Since 1918, it has grown to be one of the largest girls' societies in the country. To date, there are twelve city and six county chapters with l2OO members in Erie and Erie County. Twenty six faculty advisors work with these various groups. The past year was one of great social activity for the Academy Chapter. ln September, the first business of the new group was the balloting for officers. Those elected were: Margaret Steadman, President, Betty Paterson, Vice President, Patricia Wasser, Treasurer, lanet Pulling, Secretary, and Rosemary Schmitt, Program Chairman. During the same month the girls organized a Peninsula get together. Later, with the cooperation of the Hi-Y, a dance was sponsored in the girls' gym. ln December, along with other Christmas activities, the "Hanging of the Greens" tcok place at the YWCA building. ln lanuary, plans were completed for the annual banquet honoring the graduating seniors. Shortly after the banquet, second semester cfficers were elected. They were: Betty Paterson, President, Phyllis Davis, Vice President, Patricia Wasser, Treasurer, Wilma lean Steadman, Secretary, and Mary Patton, Program Chairman. Faculty advisors throughout the year were Miss Olsen and Mrs. Gruber. Highlights of the Girl Reserve year are always the fall and spring Tri Hi Dances. On the occasions the three city high school chapters work together, and it is customary for the girls to take the initiative in inviting their men of the hour. Girl Reserves are now working for the nation, helping with Red Cross work, learning first aid, and building the morale of the American girl. Now, more than ever, they must strive to live up to their motto, "To face life squarely." Thirty-two Girl Reserves Fall Get-Together-Girl Reserves do this, too.

The Hostess Club has answered the ever- increasing demand of Academy girls for a club in which they may learn good manners, and prepare themselves for their entrance into the social affairs of the community. Started when the club program was intro- duced to the school, the group Was originally intended to include only twenty-five members. lt attracted such a great number of girls, however, that this constitutional limitation had to be amended. This year's enrollment totaled fifty-three. l The Hostess Club has a carefully planned program for each meeting. lt has been the policy of the group to have one social, one business and four discussion meetings, in rotation, during the course of the year. Discussion periods are the most important. The girls talk over such subjects as interior decorating, color schemes in dress, appropri- ate types of clothing and how to apply make- up. They are instructed in the proper ways of table setting and decorating, and are given demonstrations of flower arrangements. The social climax of the semester was a Weiner roast at one of the peninsula cabins. A phonograph provided music, and the Virginia Reel was the order of the day. At the end of the first semester, the girls decided to change the club, temporarily, into a War Relief Qrganization. Enthusiastic over the idea of a Red Cross Training Class in first aid and a knitting group, the girls carried this Work over into their second semester. The usual program Was dispensed with "for the duration." The Hostess Club is an illustration of a truly democratic organization. The interests of each girl are brought before the group, and every member is given an opportunity to participate in the meetings. Parliamentary procedure is observed at all times. The officers of the past semester Were: Wilma lean Steadman, President, Mary Schultz, Vice President, Lois Holtz, Secretary, and Margaret Conyngham, Treasurer. With Mrs. Whitley as their sponsor, the girls of the Hostess Club completed in 1942 one of the most successful years since their organi- zation. Thirty- four The Chess Club came into existence in l937. At that time Mr. Detmers was playing at the Erie Chess Club. Gilbert Michael and Albert Goodrich, well versed in the gentle art of persuasion, prevailed upon Mr. Detmers to sponsor such a club at Academy. So, the Chess Club was born. With the aid of its advisor, who is a past master of the game of chess, the club works to improve the ability of those who already play chess, and to give instructions to those who wish to learn. The new members of the club, who are not well acquainted with the fundamentals of this puzzling yet popular game, try to improve themselves by playing the more experienced chess players of the club. Mr. Detmers shows them how to improve their game, and in- dulges in a few games of chess with them. A tournament is held each semester to determine the best chess player in the club. Each member awaits the arrival of the semi- annual bouts with anticipation, and, during the course of the tournament, does his best to make the competition as hard as possible for his fellow enthusiasts. The members of the Chess Club receive many of the worthwhile benefits that are derived from this garneg namely, better and clearer thinking ability, patience, and per- serverance. .

First purpose of the organization is to solve the charm problems of each member. The choice and wise use of beauty aids has had an important place in the weekly program. The group also tries to assay each girl's assets and short-comings, and to effectively develop them thus increasing poise and social grace. Officers for 194142 were: Betty Clark, President, Barbara Arnold, Vice President, Lynette Cooper, Secretary, and lessie Kelly, Treasurer. uluniur Sub-Ileh Club Organized to meet the needs of younger Academy girls, the lunior Sub Debs will start their third year in September. With Miss Laura Wagner as sponsor, the club is primarily interested in the problems of junior girls. Proper care of the hair, approved techniques of applying make-up, selection of clothes and correct behavior are the most important topics of discussion. Pamphlets and magazines on these subjects are used extensively. Officers were: Norma Rarick, President, Betty Cairns, Secretary, and Shirley Luther, Treasurer. First Row: N. Martin, L.

Ilrt Typing Illuh A brand new idea brought back from a Johnstown school by Miss Frances Stull, the Art Typing Club acquaints its members with the vast possibility for creative work on the typewriter. This includes making pictures, border designs, and simple cross-stitch patterns on the typewriter. The club also stresses the preparation of typewritten material with simplicity and good taste, so as to be appealing to the eye. The practical use ot art typing, that is, setting off statistics, preparing manu- scripts, copy, menus, programs, announcements, and notices, is also shown. The students have also done some cover designing, and learned to use the machine as an actually artistic instrument. This past year, the club has had thirty enrolled members. The officers were: Velma Bigley, President, Lois Christoph, Vice President, and Frances Downie, Treasurer. Senior Camera Dluh Sponsored by Miss Weir and Mr. Davis, the Senior Camera Club is one ot the school's most popular activities. Organized in September of 1938, its mem- bership rolls have shown a steady increase. Led by lean Leighty, President, Margaret Dufala, Vice Presi- dent, and Murray Brainard, Treasurer, the club this year has concentrated arousing students' interest in photography. Members of the group are taught the fundamentals of photography science. They become acquainted with the various techniques of taking flashlight and night pictures, learning to develop and print them. They study tinting and enlarging, and generally endeavor to have some acquaintances with the different branches of the art. Most important benefit, however, is a knowledge of good snap shot rules, which sooner or later shows up in the efforts of the students. First Row: B. Amann, G. Bard, A. M. Case, L. Rutkowski, I.

Urch. , . ,rig fe- tumzttf' i - w!a f The Student Senate The modern, progressive school believes in the right of the student to participate in school government. The Student Senate of Academy High School, embraces in its membership all pupils, teachers, and principals of the school. The principal delegates authority to the President of the body, reserving a veto power. The president, and other officers, the representatives from individual Home Rooms, and a faculty advisor compose the main governing body. The Preamble to the Constitution of this powerful body states its purposes, namelyg to bring the interests of the students before the facultyg to provide opportunities for student co operation in the internal operation of the schoolg and to promote the general welfare of the school and a sentiment for law and order. School elections are proceeded by mock civic activities such as the circulation of nominating petitions, and an assembly at which all candidates present their qualifications for office. The primary electicns are noted for their use of voting machines, borrowed from the County Commissioner. An election board and committee supervises the election. The final election is conducted through the Home Rooms. Arthur Baker, Patricia Young, Marilyn Dick, and Leo Verdecchia were the officers for the first semester of the school year. Second semester officers were Leo Verdecchia, Frank Pizzat, Alice Ziemer, and Carl Larson. The Senate sponsors twice each year, one of the few traditional ceremonies of the school, Gavel Day. The gavel, symbol of parliamentary ruleg the freedom of speech, the freedom of assembly and many other birthrights of the American system, is properly the symbol of authority for the Senate. Each semester the outgoing President of the Senate returns to the principal of the school, a gavel made from the wood of the Niagara, Admiral Perry's flagship during the Battle of Lake Erie, in 1813. The principal, then presents this historic gavel to the incoming president of the Senate, symbolizing in the act both his delegation of authority and his veto power. The processional of the Senate, headed by the flag bearers of the Band and the Drum and Bugle Corps is a simple but effective combination of national and school patriotism and loyalty. First Row: M.

National Honor Society The Academy Chapter ot the National Honor Society has attempted this past year to live up to the previous record ot service so Well initiated by the Charter Members of the year l937. What are the aims ot the National Honor Society? The following quotation is taken trom a message Written by a late President oi the National Council ot the National Honor Society: "The aim ot the National Honor Society is to make good citizenship in high schools a matter ot distinction. Its principles are broad enough to include in its roll ot honor a Wide variety ot admirable types ot young citizens. There is, ot course, the boy ot keen mind and magnetic personality whom his classmates elect to every ottice Within their voting power. He is the personitication ot leadership. There is the athlete Whose scholarship barely ranks him in the upper third ot his class but who rates high in sturdy integrity. There is the useful type ot girl, not brilliant, but Willing and capable as student-aid in gymnasium or library. There is the brilliant girl who enters inter-scholastic competitions ot an intellectual nature and brings home trophies tor her school. There is the girl who has to work hard to keep a B average but Whose gitt of friendliness is turned into a Wholesome service to the school. There is the boy-or girl-with a genius tor management and organizing, a genius that could very easily be turned to anti-social uses. First Row: R. Marcello, l. Schultz, B. Kindle, P. Young, M.

Forty-two National Hnnur Sucietgsaontinued On the selective basis of leadership, service, scholarship, and character each of these types is awarded a place in the National Honor Society. Of these criteria only scholar- ship can be considered exclusive in its effects. Those students who rank in the lower two- thirds of their classes are not eligible for membership in the society, but nature's own classification of men and women seems to carry the decision that leaders inevitably come from those who rank high in mentality and achievement. In other words, the scholarship requirement rarely works for in- justice, but serves rather to confirm superiority." As usual, this year the Academy group sold stationery with an engraving of the school, which is popular with all students. The proceeds from this sale make it possible to offer the Tenth Grade Award, which is presented to the boy and girl of that grade who rank high in scholarship, leadership, service, and character. g ln October the Society had charge of the collections for the Community Chest. During the campaign they collected money from the home rooms, turned it over to the office, and gave short talks in the home rooms and in assemblies. The first inter-scholastic banquet was organized in November 1940 to provide an opportunity for the members of the various chapters of the Erie high schools to exchange views and ideas. The second banquet, held this year at The Barn, was well attended and all members agreed that these worth while meetings must be continued. ln lanuary and again in May, the induc- tion ceremonies were held. On these occasions, outstanding days in the school year, students from the ll-2, 12-l, and l2-2 classes who were qualified, were inducted into the Society. The guest speaker for lanuary was Dr. C. Herman Grose, Superin- tendent of Erie Schools. The first semester officers of the Academy Chapter were: William Wright, President, Margaret Steadman, Vice President, Robert Kleffman, Student Treasurer, and Annette lohnson, Secretary. No member may serve in office for more than one semester, therefore, at the beginning of the new semester a meeting was held to choose new officers. The fortunate students who qualified, and were elected, were: Frank Pizzat, President, Elaine Huff, Vice President, Alice Knoll, Secretary, and Donald Carlson, Student Treasurer. The Faculty Treasurer, who retains his office from year to year is Mr. Walter Detmers. ln March and April the Society worked to earn money to buy soldier kits to give to the Red Cross. Thus with a year, as busy as could be, the members of Academy's National Honor Society left their Alma Mater to con- tinue its service in the world. ln the Induction picture below can be seen the N. H. S. emblem. The flaming torch is the emblem of the Society's purposes: "To bear onward and forward the searching light of truth, to lead that others may follow in the light, to keep burning in our school a high ambition for the enduring values of life, and to serve, in consideration of others."

Unscored on themselves, their games with Strong Vincent and East were nothing-to- nothing ties. Defeated in none of the city series games, the Lions lost the title to East after the final game, as East had won over Strong Vincent pre- viously. Taking everything into consideration, the 1941 team was one of the finest Academy has ever had, one that will long be remembered for its enthusiasm, discipline, and sportsmanship. Cf the three games the Lions lost, the most difficult to concede to an opponent was the Warren, Ohio game. Here Academy held the only score until the last few minutes of play, when Warren scored a touchdown, with conversion, winning the game seven to two. Busiest minute of any Academy football team came at the start of the game in Louisville, Ken- tucky. Before a full minute of playing time had elapsed, both Academy and Louisville had scored a touchdown. The longest run of the season was made by Tohn Wiley at Louisville, where he ran 73 yards for a touchdown.

'is 3 1- WW .. iii! .rf-ff' ,. .gr :Asif 4 .ff The close of the 1941-42 basketball season found Academy and Strong Vincent tied for second place in the city series league. The Lions had come through one of the toughest schedules in several years, playing eleven games besides the nine city matches. Academy led the entire league through- out the earlier part of the season. However, mid-year graduation robbed the team of three of its best players. The loss of Phil 1-laendler, Neal Mangold, and Tom Franzkoski left a gap that was keenly felt, but the team, refusing to give up, played through the last game with all the ability they possessed. Time after time, game after game, they showed their fighting determination, either defeating their opponents or losing by heart-breaking, close scores. The Academy Lions were the only team in the city to defeat the East High cagers, scoring 35 points to the Warriors! 29. After defeating Vincent in the first match, Academy lost by one point each the other two games played with the Colonels. Like the teams of years gone by, the Academy '41 basketball sguad was made up of boys who really had their hearts in the game. They worked hard, and played hard. lt goes without saying that they wanted to be the champions. But there was not one among them who regretted being on the Academy team, and win or lose, Academy was, and always will be, 'ttops" to them. Forty-seven First Row: I. Pizzat, W, French, 1. Donahi, C.

The lay-Vee Basketball team had more than its share of hard luck. The Lions won only three of their nine games, but they always went down fighting. For example, the game with Strong Vincent. At the fourth guarter, the Colonels led with a score of 32 to 21, but by the game's end, Academy had scored 14 points to Vincent's 5. Toughest of all the breaks occurred in the game with East. The teams were tied until the last three minutes of play, when East scored two more baskets to win the game. Coach Lewis had intended to have a tall team, but the team was made up almost entirely of small players. The two smallest boys, Lester Grable and Ioe Pizzat, were the highest scorers.

One ot the best squads in several years, the Lions not only won every meet of the season but established two new records. The time tor the mile relay was cut to 3:33, and Leon Holland set up a record ot 22:4 for the 2OO yard low hurdles. Academy, besides winning all dual meets, carried ctt the city crown, with a total of titty points.

The program of varsity competition can- not accommodate all who wish to participate in school athletics. Realizing the need for physical development oi these students, the coaching stati inaugurated the intramural sports program in which all students may participate. Thus, the intramural program gives the boy organized league competition which he would otherwise have to iind out- side the school.

All worked together' as one unit in which every member knew exactly what was to be done. This will explain why, during the entire season, the opposing teams scored only twelve goals against Academy.

I'-.I-' I The calendar above gives a com- plete picture of Academy's first- semester extra curricular activities. lt includes the dates of all skating parties and dances held between September and December, the scores of all football games, and the results of other late-year sporting eventsg it notes all the important assemblies and special club activities. Deadlines and space limitations have prevented the addition of less important events of the second semester. The two Proms, the Class Plays and the Senior Banquets have been recorded in other parts of the book, and are not listed on this page. Academy was fortunate in having such an extensive and varied pro- gram during 1941, for such outside events are disappearing from the American scene. The war has al- ready curtailed amusements, and the next few months will see further drastic reductions in pleasure-time activities. Today, when all America is working longer and harder, the dances and parties will be the least of the sacrifices students will be called upon to make. Academy lends itself well to photography. Its imposing location, its size and its surroundings give it a dignity that many schools lack. The stadium, the boulevard, the terrace to the west, and the open ground to the north and east all add a certain air to the school proper. Of the thousands of pictures taken during the past decade, from many angles and many distances, this is the choice of students, faculty and alumni. More than any other photo- graph, it has caught the dignity and character of the school, and the beauty of its surroundings. Fifty-four Inf 'I :Q 'I 2? Sf 1335291 smmwiws m .

The class history began in 1939, during the first semester of the tenth grade. With Mr. Towns, Mr. Lewis, Miss Demuling and Miss Burgun as faculty advisors, the class elected Mark Mueller president. First in a long line of successful social affairs was a get-together party held in the spring. In September, during the second tenth- grade semester, Phillip Haendler was elected president. Later he resigned, and Marilyn Treado was appointed to fill this position. The eleventh grade passed quietly, with the usual round of parties and dances. New faculty advisors were appointed, among them being Mr. Presogna, Miss Wollett, Miss Carroll, and Miss Badger. The Senior !lear The senior year was naturally the most important. In April, the class sponsored a dance at the Y. W. C. A. In May, a skit, "The Sugar Bowl," was written and produced by Theo- dore Lynch, with Ioycelyn Sheldon as general chairman. Iames McLaughlin and Marilyn Treado were co-chairmen of the Prom, held at Rainbow Gardens Iune 17, with Iohnny Messner's orchestra. Speaking with all sincerity, this was one of the most successful Proms an Academy class ever sponsored. The class play, "Spooks," was presented in November, and the banquet in Ianuary. On Ianuary 29, the February Seniors were the guests of the Iune Class at the Prom pre- sented in their honor. Gray Gordon's orchestra provided the music and Rainbow Gardens provided the setting. It is to be regretted that there is no further space to give credit to all those who worked so hard on so many committees, to make the career of the February Class of '42 the success that it was.

One ot the smallest classes ever graduated from Academy, the February Seniors had more than their share ot honors. Two class members, loyce Heinzelman and William Lester, graduated with distinction, winning a place on the bronze plague in the front hall. Other award winners were as follows: l.

Ray Principal Prom llueen As a climax to one of the most successful and colorful Proms at Academy, which featured the well- known band of lohnny Messner, the King and Queen with their attendants were announced. Doris Greiner and loe Senger were elected to fill the honored positions. Attendants were Rita Bolla, layne Runser, lean Buseck, Marge Stoddart, Rosemary Schmitt, and Phyllis Barton. E. Corvino, M. Mueller, R. Babe, R. Haas, L. Holland, M. Yentes, I. Emery, A. Rhodes, D. Lindgren, G. Stephan, M. Schloss. Few people really know what a great under- taking the Prom is. It involves in monetary values some eight hundred dollars, and entails a great deal of work and responsibility for various committee heads. The success of the 1941 lune Prom should be credited to Marilyn Treado and less McLaughlin, co chairmen, and to committee chairmen Daniel Rader, Marge Stoddart, Betty Shapiro, Beverly McKeen, and Marilyn Blair. Greatest single problem the committees faced was procurement of a good band. After seeing the Cleveland booking agent, lohnny Messner's band was selected. The February Class was noted for its individuality, and remained true to form in presenting a type of play not often tried at Academy. lt was a mystery, "Spooks," directed by Arthur Shepherd. The play enthralled the audience with its ghostly atmosphere and great number of murders. Spectators were kept guessing until the very end as to who the killer was. lean Emery and Leon Holland were cast as the leads. The plot centered about the will of an eccentric old man. Those of his heirs who remained in his home for three nights after the reading of the will were to receive the benefits of his estate. It seemed an easy task, but this was no ordinary home. The play was presented to the public on the evenings of November " 20 and 21. Fifty-eight Adams, Donald-birthday, December 15, 1922 -school attended, Wilson-aim, alderman.

The leads were carried by Marilyn Dick and Robert Wholehan, and the supporting cast included lames Scott, Alan Mierke, Patricia Young, Yvonne Davis, Craig Williamson, and Randolph Luther. Cne of the last affairs sponsored by the lune Class, "Fire Away" met with the approval of students, faculty, and public, playing to a capacity audience during each of the three evening performances. Sixty-six Music by Gray Gordon Were you there ? ? One of the highlights ot every Prom is the "inter- mission-time" announcement of the Prom King and Queen, with their attendants. This "royalty" is elected by the eleventh and twelfth grades. The King and Queen, and two of their attendants, are always members ot the graduating class. Two are chosen from the 12-1 class, and one each from the two eleventh grade groups. As a pleasing variation ot the usual procedure, an equal number of boys were elected attendants for the February Prom.

Ulrlch A Johnson FIRST SEMESTER The lune Seniors of 1942 have a longer history as an united group than any other Academy class, having organized early in the ninth grade, with Richard Shuffstall, president. In the sophomore year, Arthur Baker was elected president. A party, held on Hal- loween, was followed by a get-together at the Y.W.C.A., and a skating party at the 12th Street Rink. When Robert Chaffee became president in the junior year, several changes took place. A system of dues collection was established, and for the first time, senior class rings and jewelry could be ordered in the eleventh grade. During the senior year, business of the class was carried on by Craig Williamson, President, and the executive board. The class party, held in October with the cooperation of the February seniors, was an overwhelming success. Most outstanding social event, the February prom featuring Gray Gordon's orchestra, was held at Rainbow Gardens. Early in April, the seniors enjoyed another social gathering at a theatre party. As one of the last features of the year, the class play, "Fire Away," was presented. This was followed by the Prom, held on May 22, and then by the banquet and graduation.

Qpen to any person out of high school, they train inexperienced young people as machine operators and serve as refresher courses for older men. The classes, divided into several sessions, run twenty-four hours a day. Applicants, who are accepted whenever a machine is free, usually leave to Work in the factories before completing the entire course. ln conjunction with their classes, several blue-print reading courses are sponsored. ln these also it is possible to begin study at any time, although the course began in March and present students are Well ad- vanced in the study of blue prints and draft- mg. Newest addition to the school's curricula includes a machine shop course for girls. Classes were organized at the beginning of the second semester, to give mechanically- minded girls some of the basic principles of machine-shop practice. At the end of the first half year, it has been shown that girls are as adept as boys at this type of work.

But have courage! Your achievements in reaching the Senior class and your diplomas are your first steps in the development of Con- fidence. Now is the time for Confidence. Confidence in the heart and mind of each individual, young or old. That spirit pushes its way through family groups, municipal governments, state governments, and finally, up through the closely knit Unity that is America. It is necessary, therefore, that each individual, especially you Seniors coming from our high schools, face the situation with a clear eye, with that courage and will to do all that is right to preserve the American Way of Life. Let us look upon these days with open minds. You, who in your Chemistry classes, looked upon the experiment in the crucible with interest and intelligence, quickly learned that, having completed the right procedure, your result would be right. So it is in today's living. Go into business and industry with a will. Keep your feet on the ground, and above all, remember . . . It is from the valleys that we gain our courageg from the hills, our strength. Good luck and keep your chin up. Sincerely yours, Z E ifmfbzw Vice President President and the ERIE METER SYSTEMS, INC.
