Miss Carroll Mrs. Crane
"Gladly would he learn and gladly teach." 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.

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.
'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"

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,
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.

We have come a long way since our first day of school. 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.

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
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.

Senate Key Awards
Recognition of good citizenship is just as important
as recognition in Academic studies or athletics. The Key
Awards are presented by the Senate for outstanding
citizenship in a school organization.
A gold key is the award which is presented to only
one member of every 20 members of an organization.
Either the faculty or fellow members may nominate the
candidates, with the faculty having the final approval.

simulating the monthly JRC variety shows presented
at the Veterans' Hospital.

patients and home tutored students ot Erie. An-
other big proiect was that of raising money for a
school chest to help schools which have been
destroyed by natural disasters or war either in the
U.S. or abroad.
Under the supervision of their sponsor teachers,
Mrs. Bell and Mrs. Whaley, this year was indeed
successful. The JRC council accomplished its goal -

e yearbook is a challenging task
To make a complete, accurate memory book for the school year is the challenging
job of the yearbook staff. This interesting work was tackled eagerly by this year's staff
with an eye toward producing a book that would be a credit to the school.
Headed by Nancy Dennington, editor, and David Eller, business manager, the staff
is divided into six sections: activities, sports, faculty, seniors, underclassmen, and busi-
ness. Each section has its own chairman and its own specific assignment, which must be
completed in time to meet the deadlines. Mr. Balla and Mr, Ferrare, the faculty advisors,
keep a close supervision on the work to see that high standards are maintained.
Compiling the 1959 Academe has been a rewarding experience for the staff, and we
feel that we have reason to be proud of our book. We hope that those who read it
will feel the same.

Many hours of hard but enioyable work marked the preparation of the girls' chorus for
their season activities.

packed audience to Christmas songs from many parts of the world.
Later they entertained Wilson and Memorial Junior High Schools at assembly pro-
grams, where they were received with unusual enthusiasm. At the close of the season,
the girls gave their annual Spring Concert to on appreciative audience of Academy
students, parents, and old friends.

After an absence of two years, the Dramatic Club staged a very successful comeback.
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
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

the basis ot their sense of responsibility and service
to the school.
Divided into three groups according to their

librarian, and the office staft. They all help to keep
the halls quiet and orderly.

Whoa boy, that's for enoughl
Despite a wavering start when Farrell defeated Academy 33-13, the Lions roared
forward to a spectacular victory over Prep. 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.

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
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
