Through l87 years of combined service to Academy, these women have given Themselves to the difficult Tasks involved in a teaching career. To them we dedicate this book in sincere appreciation of their under- standing, friendship, and contribution to the enrichment of our growth. This dedication on a page of our yearbook, is in itself a small acknowledgement and is not intended to compensate for the years of service conscientiously rendered. lt is only a reminder that we are grateful and that we wish them the very best. Miss Bateson's exceptional ability to speak fluent French was admired by all of her students. She had a pleasing manner and was always sincere. We are sorry that we were unable to secure a picture of Miss Bateson. Although Miss Carroll was a tlrm believer in strict discipline, her classes were always congenial. She made necessary tasks interesting. One of the most enthusiastic teachers was Mrs. Crane. She exerted a great influence on the lives of the boys she taught. Her eagerness to be of assistance at any time made her a true friend. Even though business was mixed with pleasure, no time was wasted in Miss Johns- ton's World History classes. Her students will never forget her cheerfulness and ability to get things done properly. Miss Lord's art work was a great inspiration to her students. She is fondly remem- bered for her continuous search for the good that could be developed in an individual. Miss Meyette's vim, vigor, and vitality kept her gym classes on the tips of their toes. Her very pleasant nature and keen sense of humor were responsible for the cheerful atmosphere that permeated the gym at all times. 4 an ,tr MFA ,X , . 4, 'M . , - f 5 - X 11 S , , ..

This Academe is meant To give pleasure by helping you To recall your friends, oc- Tivifies, and experiences during the 1958- l959 school year. Happy memories To you! LEROY E. BARBER, Ed.D. Assistant Principal Dear Friends 'I958-1959 has been, is and will be branded in my memory as a wonderful year for me. During this time, I have done more things than I have in all my sixteen years, and I love doing things. There are many first times, first experiences and impressions. When I first came, I shuddered to think how I would adapt my- self to the new environment, but I soon found out how wrong one could be. Too often we emphasize the difference of foreign peoples, but when we begin to dig further down, we discover that those petty differences are dwarfed by the same- ness that is latent within us. The word "American" to me means "modern, rich, friendly and fast - eat fast, talk fast,and walk fast." The standard of living here is undoubtedly the highest. Television at night is a provoking challenge to my homework, and wild horses could not drag me away from the set. Being an exchange student is a wonderful and unique experience and I know I will benefit from and cherish memories of it. The American Field Service is in- deed doing a splendid iob and my "family," the Benses are just great. I am glad that I can say these words when I return home: "I'm from Academy and no one could be prouder. If you cannot hear me, I'll yell a little louderI" MeaLanLye x ii- t X -fi DRI , .51 Y .l amiga Malayan FederaT1?m Matacc a CO 10 at Academy, You are the ones who, with the American Field Service International Scholar- ships, made possible for me to come to the United States and I think you would perhaps like to know about my first impressions of American teenagers and what I think about Academy and its students. I came to America with the impression that youngsters here did everything they wanted, driving as though crazy and causing many accidents and troubles. I apologize now to you because I have completely changed my mind. The students of Academy are so nice, friendly and intelligent. I enioyed associating with you, my friends. Academy is also different from the strict Catholic private schools I was attending in Greece. I find my teachers here conducting classes very informally and am permitted to consider them as friends also. They are always giving us a hand of help when we are in need, and I needed it quite often because of the difficulty I had with my English. In concluding my year at Academy, I would like to thank all of you for the kindness and friendship shown to me and the wonderful experience that I will never forget as long as I live.

That day marked our initial step into the exciting and interesting world of teachers, books, schedules, bells, fire drills, sports, activities, dates, and parties. In our classes we found excellent teachers, each different, but each basically understanding and helpful when we faltered. Our classmates, teammates, and co-workers were of many races, creeds and nationalities. Among them all we found friends. Each has left an im- print on us as each has become a part of what we are today. This has been a rich heritage, and our years have been fruitful.

I,-K I ' ' I ' ' ii' -'4'- f A S ,A.... f f,FA 53 I Mr. Academe A combination of many good traits is necessary to be chosen Mr. Academe, Russell Norcross, a pleasant mannered, hard working student and athlete, fits the pattern perfectly. During his three years of high school, he has distinguished himself as a valuable member of our football, basketball, and baseball teams. He has won many personal trophies, but he was not thinking of personal glory when he helped Academy win the coveted Trophy of Trophies. Besides participating in sports, this popular boy enioys going to dances, watching television, and working on cars. But Russ never neglects his academic work as he plans to enter college this fall and realizes that brain is as important as brawn. We are positive that our Mr. Academe will shine in college and in the future as much, if not more, as he has here at Academy. His determination to succeed and his outstanding personality are sure to carry him far. 14 EW 3 ANS. ,gk X, N, ww - , , 132.1 -4 'W 7? A my 'V in ' fm, IRIEQPA 6 ' fs ,itll .. U Y.

Advised by Miss Maior, the members of the organization become acquainted with the many aspects of the theater and strive to develop their creative talents. Early in the spring they presented a one-act comedy entitled "Five for Bad Luck." Nancy Greenstein and David Bondy, playing the main characters, led the rest of the cast through a very successful and enioyable performance. Other proiects for the year included a doughnut sale and a playhouse party. The Drama Club Officers, Mei Lon Lye, Ed Hamilton, Nancy Green- stein, Chairman, Sue Hester, and their advisor Miss Maior, are satisfied with the play, "Five for Bad Luck," which they performed 71 in April. Sopranos, altos, tenors, and baritones blending their voices in superb harmony as members of the Choir, presented many con- certs this year. Highlight of the year was the Christmas Choral Concert when the Choir presented the difficult and impressive "Halleluiah Chorus" from Handel's "Messiah." As a follow up, to transmit the Christmas spirit throughout the entire school, the Choir sang a variety of hymns and carols at the annual Christmas assembly program. With Obed Grender as di- rector, the Choir made a trip to Roosevelt Junior High, enter- tained the Kiwanis Club at a luncheon, participated in the Spring Choral Concert and in a combined concert with the chorus from Strong Vincent and East to mark a very fruitful year. . . . and He shall reign forever and . . , " O ROW I: J.

With only one minute remaining in the game, Russ Norcross snatched a fumble from Prep's I yard line and raced 50 yards toward the Academy goal posts before he was finally brought down. This killed Prep's chances for a win and gave Academy a hard-earned victory. Next two games proved to be the roughest when the Lions lost to a fast charging East team by a score of 21-6 and to a rugged Rochester Acquinas by a score of 12-O. Back on the winning path, Academy trounced Vincent 32-8, Harborcreek 46-6, Tech 31-2, McDowell 26-7 and Meadville 40-O, to place the Blue and Gold in second place in the race for the city championship. Eftorts of Coach Lou Tullio and of his assistants Mike Ferrare and Jack Komora, paid oft for Academy's record at the end of the season was 6 wins - 3 losses. Lettermen were: D. Benz, G. Blanchard, D.

Planning is half the battle, Varsity courtmen broke even this season with a record of 9 wins and 9 losses. This enabled them to tie for third place in the race for the city crown and in the Greater Erie contest. Coach Komora's sharpshooters took to the road for their opening games and looked impressive enough to give Academy followers hopes for a winning season. The team won four out of their first five contests, and then reversed itself by losing four out of the next five. From then on it was an up-and-down season with the team showing its best form against Prep in a thrilling battle that ended 46 to 45 in favor ot Prep. Prospects for next season are quite bright as Coach Komora will have four lettermen back - Woodard, Miller, Nielsen, and May. These men will receive considerable help from a J.V. squad that tied for first place in the J.V. competition. Varsity letters were awarded to the following: Russ Norcross and Doc Blanchard, co-captains, Gene Deibler, El Woodard, Jim Miller, Dave Nielsen, Dave Kraus, Chuck Myers, Gary Miner, and Russ May.

Spurred on by coach Mike Ferrare, the junior leaguers tied for second place in the city standing. As a result of their hard work and enthusiastic play- ing, this peppy team brought victory to Academy in 9 games out of eleven. After losing their first game to Vincent, the hard working Lions proved their ability by defeating Vincent in the next round, 42 to 32, The second loss was to Prep. Nine players won letters: Ken Emerick, Cleo Har- ris, Jim Keys, Ron Porath, Bob Hilliard, Scott Bar- nard, Chuck Allen, Jim Needham, and Chuck Thomas.

Wrestling Graduation played havoc with Academy's wrestling team, and coach Tony Verga and his hopefuls had to settle for a tie for third place in the city series standing. Their over-all record of 5 wins and 6 losses was way below par for a team that had won three successive city championships immediately preceding this season. However, the experience gained by the squad this year promises a better record for next year. Letters were awarded to captain Dom Sette, Tom Simmons, John Montour, and Jerry Evanoft. Lettermen expecting to win honors next year are: Ronald Kopf, Bob Curry, Ed James, Ben Wall, Frank Huber, Chuck EvanoFf, Dick Scott and Gerald Kubiak, the team's manager.

LIFESAVING Every Monday and Thursday tTtty Academy girls met after school with Mrs. Robb to take a course in lifesaving. Frequently, the girls were called on to rescue drowning victims from the pool, using the various approaches and carries they had learned, Naturally, this was just tor practice. Atter they had completed Htteen strenuous hours ot training in the water and had written their assignments, the girls were tested in the spring by Mr. Pettinato. The lucky ones passed and received pins for their eftorts. Twink McDowell and Pat Albert demonstrate the life- saving lump.

This is essential in the writing of clear, correct, and attractive letters, necessary not only in the personal lives ot students but also for advance- ment in the business world. The eltective use of words is also mastered through practice and class discussion. Attentive listening is necessary to recognize mis- leading statements and continually changing lan- guage usage. Our English teachers know that courteous and critical listening is highly important for an intelligent person. Creative self expression is acquired by means of actual performance before the class. Securing sentence variety helps students not only to speak well but also to communicate their knowledge intelligently to others. Slides, film strips, recordings, and motion pictures are used tor enriching the class work and developing a well rounded personality. on Miss Elizabeth Brown is always ready and willing to help her students with all English problems. Audio-visual aids are a great asset in Mr. Joseph Habas' English classes, for they arouse class interest and bring about a better under- standing ot the fundamentals of English. 137 flu l .rf X... ,ahh To know the worle f :D The students in Frank Pettinato's World History class Lynette vonKortt tells her World History classes about goin o thorough knowledge of world problems. the woy of lite in foreign countries.

Science Science has had a great ettect on mankind. Man no longer labors from dawn until dusk. Modern medicine can cure many diseases formerly fatal. Messages are transmitted quickly to their destinations in all parts ot the world. Travel is a matter ot hours - no longer days. lt is inevitable that science should play a most vital part in our lives. As we view the ever brighter future ot science we pause with awe. To be prepared for newer develop- ments and corresponding competition of other nations, we must use our most defensive force - education. Miss Ethel Ruhling explains the circulatory system to her Biology class. The areas altered at Academy - biology, chemistry, physics, horticulture and health - are now even more greatly encouraged. The student preparing for a career in engineering, medicine, or electronics needs extensive inquiry into these various fields.

In such subjects as Drafting, Machine Shop, Sewing, and Cooking, students are able to develop their aptitudes into useful skills for fu- ture years. Drivers' Education teaches students the theory of driving and then makes them better drivers by actual experience on the highways. This year the Art Department has prepared a tape on the history of art from historic to modern times. This tape will be sent to various schools as a teaching guide. Chief aim of the Music Department is to teach students the appre- ciation of better music. Through daily training and performing before audiences, students gain poise and ease, two qualities that are of great value in the development of one's personality.

To meet the needs of all Academy students, a Junior Trades Department is included in the school curriculum. The course of study of this department includes periods of combined social science and math, language, arts, and shop. Perhaps the most valuable subiect is the shop.
