DEDICATION The good name of a school depends upon a number of things, one of which is good teaching. Since its beginning in 1920, Academy has had many fine teachers whose dedicated service has given it an enviable position among schools in this area. One of these fine teachers is Miss Alice Gaggin, to whom this Academe is affectionately dedicated. Miss Gaggin taught at Academy from 1920 until her retirement in 1942. To have missed a course in English from Alice or her sister, Gertrude, was a calamity indeed. Hundreds of graduates will remem- ber pleasantly the friendly tone of her classes and the stimulation of her instruction. Many also will pay her the highest tribute a teacher can receive, saying in fond remembrance: She was my friend.d39U3U3d 01 8 V3A V m EZB sfmBBEeffi]•! rEOR; x$9mH5Jy i ffl i ;;c V Zilails awl EJ History is of importance to us because it enables us to profit from past failures and successes. This Academe is a history of your school life. May you make use of it, not only to recall your high school days, but to profit by your past experiences as a stu- dent of Academy. As time passes, look back on your high school life, for you will find many places in it where in the light of your present knowledge you would have acted in a manner that would have been of greater help to you in your life. Sincerely, GUY A. MINADEO Principal 6Success in future work will come with interest, application and an ability to continue learning. Also cooperation with others is vital in a modern world. Give to others the respect you wish to earn and realize that a calm and happy individual lifts the morale of an entire group. Empathy is a quality each needs in order to understand why others act as they do in this time of rapid change but changeless values. MABEL STUDEBAKER Assistant Principal This Academe is a pictorial record of the many opportunities that have confronted you during the past school year. I hope that you have taken full advantage of the various opportunities for participation. If you have done so then I am certain that you have had a pleasant and satis- fying school year. LEROY E.

AND MISS ACADEME Ted Parker A vivacious girl of the senior class is our Miss Academe, Salli Illig. Salli, with blue eyes and golden hair, stands about 5' 6". She is an active member of Y-Teens, and is co-captain of our cheerleaders. Her friendly disposition has been a credit to Academy and has won her many friends. After graduation Salli hopes to attend Mercyhurst College to become a kindergarten teacher. Our Mr. Academe is Theodore Parker, popular lad around school who can be found busily engaged in some activity. Ted stands about 5' 10", and has brown hair and hazel eyes. He is our very capable Senate President, and was on our Water Polo and Swimming teams for several years. Ted hopes to enter Ohio Wesleyan College after graduation. Ted and Salli are known throughout the school for their friendly manner and thoughtful ways. Ted and Salli are well-deserving of the high honor of being elected Mr. and Miss Academe of 1956. We wish them this success all through their lives. 60Row 1: S. Young, G. Brosius, P. Narducci, J. Stevens, M. Cohen, B. Donatelli, T. Parker, B. Johnson, C. Bettilyon, J. Montour, P. Stronb, D.

This governing body of Academy students was established to help others to become good leaders and to be the voice of the students. Each homeroom has representation in this organization and elects a member senator, who carries out the wishes of the students. Briefly, the purposes of the Student Senate are these: to bring the problems of the student body before the faculty, to increase student body co-operation with the faculty, to give practice in methods of democratic government, and to encourage more student leadership in all the school's activities. The Senate sponsors Gavel Day, one of the few traditional cere- monies of the school, at the beginning of the school year. The ceremony opens with the presentation of new officers and home- room representatives. The outgoing president of the Senate returns the gavel to the principal who in turn gives it to the new president. The gavel is a symbol of authority and was made from the wood of the Niagara, Admiral Perry's flagship during the Battle of Lake Erie in 1813. This act symbolizes the new president's delegation of authority and his veto power.HONOR SOCIETY One of the most outstanding organizations at Academy is the National Honor Society which is under the direction of Miss Mong. The emblem of this organi- zation is the torch, which is a Symbol of the Society's purposes: to strive to learn the truth, to lead others, to keep up the ambitions of the students, and to always have consideration for others. In order to be eligible for membership you must be above average in scholar- ship, leadership, and character. Becoming a member is a goal for most students. The inductions into the National Honor Society are very impressive and are held twice a year. During the assembly program the chosen students are tapped by the present members. Each year, members of the National Honor Society look forward to the annual city-wide banguet. Row 1: D. Kelley, G. Sette, K. Hummel, T. Bubrzyk, P. Marchini, K. Ankiel, B.. Donatelli, C. Ankiel, J.

During sec- ond period they can be found rehearsing for concerts and assemblies under the direction of Miss Schweitzer The spring and winter concerts are the most gala events of the year in which the girls participate. The concerts take much hard work, but the end results are always gratifying. Besides presenting concerts and assemblies, the girls also sing at various schools throughout the city, Row 1: F.

Briggs, L Kensill, E. Carlisle, M. Mando, C. Johnston, J. Porter, D. Dick, A. Sundberg, where they are always remembered for their fine programs. Before becoming members of the Chorus, the girls must take a voice and ear test. The girls are tested by repeating certain refrains just as they hear them played by Miss Schweitzer. No girl can possibly be taken into the Chorus unless she has this ability. No girl will ever regret having belonged to the Senior Girls' Chorus for she will always remember the pleasant times and good experience she gained. R. Hedderick, C. Simmons. Row 4: M. J.

They concentrate on learning appreciation of music and voice control until they are at their best. Each girl becomes familiar with the works of many well-known composers ranging from Bach to Berlin, and as a result of such training, the chorus presents beautiful programs. Some examples of these programs are the Christmas and Spring Concerts and the Junior High Festival in May. The Chorus rehearses jn two sections; the eighth grade girls meet fourth period while the ninth grade meets fifth period. The neat appearance of their long- sleeved white blouses and dark-colored skirts pre- sents a pleasing sight to their audience. Any eighth or ninth grade girl interested in music is eligible for audition, providing she can success- fully pass the voice and ear test given by Miss Schweitzer. 69T. Ashton, M. Ayers, J.

BAND The audiences are always pleased to hear the various performances of the band in the Instrumental Concert, Academy on Parade, in parades and rallies. This year our band had the honor of going to Cleveland to play during the intermission of the Brown's football game. The excellent performances can be attributed to Mr. Burger, our new band director, and to the many students who have out- standing musical ability. During this football season the audiences commented on the clever formations and fine appearance of the band and twirlers. R. Angelotti, C. Hanes, L. Filipczak, J. Fredrychowski, J. Perry, C.

TWIRLERS The twirlers, one of the most popular organizations at Academy, is under the direction of Mr. Swahn. To become a member of the twirlers is the aim of just about every girl who enters Academy. During the latter part of November the try-outs are held from which girls are chosen for their marching ability, personality, neatness, and ability to work. Maintain- ing an average of "B" is a must. The girls practice every day during sixth period and often after school, learning new drills and acts. Besides performing at school rallies, in half time performances, and in Academy on Parade, the major- ettes design and make all their outfits for these shows. Last year the twirlers gained fame when they ac- companied the band to Pasadena, where they per- formed in the Rose Bowl Parade. M. Savelli, D. Taylor, C. Skinner, P. Plonsky, L. Peplinski, L.

They've put on skits, marched in parades, and partici- pated in half-time shows at football and basketball games. Sue Hammill and Sally Illig, co-cap- tains of the cheerleading sguad, have given spunk to many of Academy's ral- lies. Win or lose, this team of girls has lifted the school spirit. Besides cheering our team on to vic- tory, these girls sell booster plates, pen- cils and book covers, also sponsor dan- ces to earn money for new uniforms and other expenses. SENIOR HIGH: Row 1: S.

Palmer, J. Dalton, C. Sullivan, L. Ross DRAMA CLUB The two plays which the Drama Club presented this year were enthusiastically received by the student body. Drama is a form of expression which depends largely upon communication from the playwright to the audience through the medium of the actor. Activities such as public speaking, make-up, costuming, stage managing, and directing are only a few of the complexities of stage production stressed during the year. The Playhouse Student Theatre offers a limited number of scholarships to the various schools in Erie. These scholarships are based on ability to act and proficiency in stage craft. We were fortunate to have two Academy students receive scholarships this past fall. Membership is limited to the Senior High School, and is open only in September and February. The meetings and rehearsals take place entirely after school hours. The officers who were elected in September are: President, Donald Palmer; Vice President, Joan Dalton; Secretary, Linda Ross; and Treasurer, Connie Sullivan. few 1: C. Sullivan, L. Ross, D.

Its members, as a result of their work on these projects, develop good citizenship habits and an awareness of their respon- sibilities to others. Under the super- vision and direction of Miss Kaste, Mrs. Hogenmiller, and student representa- tives, homeroom members participate in these activities. For example, they col- lect money for charity, prepare baskets for needy children, and fill gift boxes which are sent to Europe. Row 1: J. Green, C. Higgins, P. Kemple, M. Epp, F. Emerman, D.

Under the expert direction of Miss Isadora Schweitzer, the Academy Orchestra gives two concerts each year. Throughout the year the members travel to various schools to present programs. These activities vary the orchestra's repetoire from the standard classics to concert arrangements of popular musical comedy numbers. The orchestra aims at instrumental proficiency and the better understanding of the works of the great masters. A concert master is selected each year for his music reading ability, technigue, and dependability. Carolyn Trieber was the recipent of this honor this past year. Other officers include; Diane Moran, Secretary; Kay Schmidt, Treasurer; Arlene Tomzak and Linda Taylor, Librarians.In the future the students of the Dis- tributive Education class, commonly known as the Merchandising class, will be the leading salesmen and sales- women of Erie and vicinity. The course is offered only to Seniors who wish to take it and can meet the reguirements. From 8:00 to 11:00 each morning the students concentrate on English, store mathematics, buying, selling, and mak- ing counter and window displays, under the capable direction of Mrs. Eisert. In the afternoon they report to their various jobs, which they have obtained with the help of the school. In addition to their regular schedule, the Merchandising students sponsor various activities, such as the skating party which was held last November. B. Balsiger, B. Bellows, M. E. Bliss, N.

MONITORS An organization which students hear very little about is the monitor force, which quietly and efficiently maintains order in the school halls. Besides the regular hall monitors, there are also office monitors who run errands, and in general, assist the office staff. Such responsibilities can only be given to trust-worthy and competent students. Row 1: M. Crocker, K. Phillips, Y. Phillips, C. Held, V. Walter, C. Roll, B. Hayes, P. Hess, C. Zwilling. Row 2: J.

The program which has become known as E.B.I. day is a rather recent development in our community. E.B.I. means Edu- cation, Business, and Industry, and it is the purpose of the program to promote friendship, and familiarity between the three participating groups. Because of their civic project, responsible parties in business and industry are becoming more aware of school operation and of the preparation of students for adult life. On their recent visit to Academy, our guests examined the school and its facilities, attended classes in progress, and talked with faculty members and administrators about school operation. It is believed that as a result of these visits, businessmen and industrialists will become aware of the capabilities of students seeking employment. Further- more, because they become familiar with the school, it is hoped that aid in the form of suggestions and fresh ideas from its visitors enrich the school program.Row 1: F. Wild, I.

Because of the endeavor and initiative of adminis- trative and faculty members, this year's Visitation Day at Academy was certainly a success. Special credit should be given to Mr. John Mifkovic and to Mr. Marion Lewis, who willingly assumed the bulk of the responsibility for the day's activity, and who carried out their responsibility to its conclusion. 87 90vl J.

The team lost games, but they won the respect of their opponents and the student body for being one of the finest teams that ever donned the blue and gold. The enthusiasm and the desire to play, despite setbacks, built within our boys a character trait to be envied by all. We hope that the future teams of Academy will also have this same spirit and enthusiasm. 114VARSITY FOOTBALLBASKETBALL R. Klomp, E. Riley, A. Mango, D. Kidder, M. Gregory, C. Thomas, E. Plonsky, K. Hayden, R. McWilliams, P. Holmes, D. Blake, M. Schumaker, E. Cieless, A. Marthinson, C. Shearer.Lead by Coach Mike Ferrare, our basket- ball team had a very successful season, winning 20 of their 24 games. Two members of the team, Roger Pierce and Ed Plonsky, held first string positions on the All-Scholastic team. Ken Hayden received second team honors. Both Pierce and Plonsky succeeded in breaking the school scoring record held by Pete Russo from the class of 1955. Our sharpshooters finished second in District '10, one game behind Tech. In the last game of the season, against Vincent, our boys meshed 74 points to set an all time scoring record last held by the Vincent team. Because of losses through graduation, next year's team will rely on the ability of Chuck Thomas, Alan Marthinsen, Don Kidder, Bob Klomp, Max Schumaker, and players from this year's J. V. team.

The team this year scored East 3 32 points compared to 18 for the competition. Academy 9 Our sea lions should be given special commenda- Tech 1 tion, for Curt Clark, Bob Baumgartner, and Werner Academy 6 Bush made all scholastic first team, while Frank East 3 Pettinato and Dave Cardot made second team and Academy 3 honorable mention respectively.- Bob Baumgartner, Prep 2 led the list of scorers, followed by Frank Pettinato, Academy 3 Dave Cardot, Curt Clark, and Jack Utley.

This year Curt Clark, our star breaststroker, broke the school 100 yd. breaststroke record formerly held by Jon Buzzard. The Sea Lions were defeated by Strong Vincent alone in City Series dual meets, both of these meets being decided by the last relays. Academy gualified five swimmers to compete in the State Championships. Frank Pettinato Jr. placed second in the 150 yd. individual medley, and Dave Cardot finished sixth in the 100 yd. backstroke. Next year's team will have seven lettermen return- ing, for we lose only Curt Clark, Ken. Steinhauer, and Bob Baumgartner.

TRACK Academy's 1955 "Cindermen," ended their season in a flash of speed by capturing the championship at the city meet. Two new records were established by the team this year. One of these was made at the District meet by the 880 relay team which was comprised of A. Baker, C. Baker, J. Barnes, and E. Dunn. Their time was 1:31:3. The other new record was made in the city meet by Art Baker in the 180 yard lowhurdles. The time was 20:7. Charles Baker was the only team member to place in the State meet. Nevertheless, we took first place in the District meet. Because of the excellent coaching staff consisting of Mr. Giesler, Mr. Harkins, Mr. Acker, and Mr. Komora, this group had a very successful season, and we are sure they will be striving for an even better season next year.

Placing second in city school competition, the team lost only two meets, both to Vincent. In the District and State meets the Academy team placed second and sixth respectively. One of Academy's speedy harriers, Bob Bens, brought addi- tional glory to Academy when he set a new school record with the time of 10' 44". Senior squad members leaving this year are: Syd Smith, Bob Bens, Don Grace, Larry Smith, Harry Winkleman, Charles Rohan, and Larry Gibbens manager. B. Benz, H. Winkleman, L. Wasielewski, R. Mar- tin.

Although our boys held a first place position through the early part of the season, they relin- quished that spot after being defeated by Vincent. The linksters finished second in city series standings and were District 10 champions. Of the three boys who quali- fied and participated in the P. I. A. A. championships, two placed in the ninth and twenty-third positions. They are Chuck Bainbridge and Rand Newby, respectively.

This year's Junior Varsity Football team had a fine season finishing in second place in the city series. The highest scorer was Leon Ott with 48 points and the longest run was 85 yards by Grover Blanchard.

Dick Benz was the outstanding player of the team and is a very good prospect for our varsity squad. We are certain that under the instruction of Coach Harkins, this team will continue to produce good athletes. This year's rough and tough junior high football team played a fine season under the competent instruction of Coach Joseph Gervase. The "Cubs" ended the season with 3 wins, 2 losses and 1 tie.

As soon as weather permits, these girls practice tedi- ously in the courts and learn accuracy, team work and good sportsmanship. Although these girls do not compete with other teams as in other girls sports, they do learn the art of badminton well. M. Ellis, P. Phillips, M. Hahn, J. Goetzinger, P. Fritz, P. Palermo. The girls in Mrs. Robb's swimming classes have learned to handle themselves well in the water. If the girls participate in after school swimming they may earn points towards a letter A which re- quires 150 points. For those girls interested, Junior and Senior life saving courses are also included as part of the swim- ming classes activities. 129 E. SteinhauerShown at the right is the girl's champion basketball team. This hard working group has fought hard to gain its title. By an elimination process the best teams in the girl's gym classes are then able to compete with each other for the cham- pionship. Under the able supervision of our gym teachers these girls have learned the rules of good sportsmanship and have gained the desire to win. M. Whigham, W. Jones, A. Sundberg, R. Smith, S. Leberman, M.

Under Miss Meyette's and Mrs. Robb's supervision these girls have participated in many sports and have worked hard for their membership.The girl's champion volley ball team is pictured at the left. As in basketball by an elimination process the best teams in the girls gym classes are then able to compete with each other for the cham- pionship.

These girls have expertly learned the art of the bow and arrow and have also gained poise, accuracy, and habits of good sportsman- ship. This is not a sport meant entirely for pleasure, for each girl must show her ability by gaining a large number of bull's eyes during her training time. Row 1: J. Stroker, P. Maeder. Row 2: K.
