Like all who have preceded us

whatever image we wish to become.

we practice endurance.

WE CAST OUR LOT
Beside his window overlooking London Bridge
Chaucer observed in fascination the pilgrim train
wend its way to Canterbury.
Remembering - he made them famous in his Tales.
Shakespeare - keen observer of the human scene -
viewed the lowly and the mightyg
the young, the oldp the poor, the rich.
Remembering - he brought them to life upon his stage.
Like Chaucer and Shakespeare
we teachers, too, are brought to view
an exciting spectrum of humanity.
Out of the maze of nameless faces
that come before us year by year
appears a studious Meg, a laughing Tim,
each unique in his own way -
yet neither an extension of the other.
Within a few short weeks
the entire gamut of human traits
unfolds itself before our eyes
and soon we learn to know their needsg
then search for ways to deal with each accordingly.
We cast our lot
with these young inquiring minds who count on us
for guidance in their search for knowledge
and independent thought.
From them, one day, who knows .. .
a modern Chaucer or a future Shakespeare may arise,
What challenge could be greater?

Leadership inspires confidence
Mr. Donald Zonno, Assistant Principal
Mrs. Bertha Blau, Assistant Principal
ln his sixth year as school chief,
Principal Donald DeNardo exhib-
ited strong leadership and author-
ity in managing school policies and
dealing with school-oriented prob-
lems. Assistants, Mrs. Bertha Blau
and Mr. Donald Zonno, ably assist-
ed him in these important tasks.
The support and firm guidance of-
fered by our administrators played
a positive note in encouraging
Academy students to adopt a new
pride in maintaining the beauty of
our recently renovated schoolg a
role which, in turn, created individ-
ual pride and confidence.
Both Superintendent Richard Helinski and Principal Don DeNardo

Mr. I. Buchanan
- Guidance Counselor
No problem or advice sought by
students was too large or in-
significant to receive the attention
of any of Academy's five coun-
selors. Crossing grade levels, they
offered their assistance to any stu-
dent who approached them. They
advised Seniors on how to prepare
college applications, administered
tests and later counseled about the
PSAT and SAT scores. Anyone
who had a personal problem, a
question to ask, or a career to in-
quire about knew where to go for
assistance. Counselors hosted a
very successful College Night, a
first for Academy.

Office secretaries, drawing on their
diversified talents, handled efficiently
their multiple daily duties. ln addition
to answering phones, typing student
lists, writing letters, and filing student
records, office personnel also greeted
and directed visitors to the school.
They cooperated wholeheartedly with
faculty, pupils, and administrators.

Mrs. Sheridan, R.N., continued to
handle student ailments, both real

Class physicals, she was present
also when exams were adminis-
tered. As a part of Phase Il, the
infirmary now occupies an attrac-
tive suite of rooms on the east side
ofthe main floor.
Mrs. Brenoel, librarian, along with
her aide, Mrs. DeLuca, offered im-
measurable help to teachers and
students. The library became a re-
source center for A.V.A. software
used in many classes.

Math confuses and challenges
Math Department presented a wide
variety of "problematic" courses,
ranging from basic ninth grade
math to calculus. Each student had
the option of selecting a class suit-

talent. Modern equipment and a
highly mechanized computer in-
spired ingenuity and independent

Kristie Roberts, student under Mr. Chizmadia, decided to
redecorate a large antique oval tray, black in color. She was
sure that with a little imagination, plus talent, she could
transform it into a decorative seasonal piece. Step 1 involved
giving the tray several coats of crimson enamel. Envisioning
English holly branches as a design, she draws the first leaf.
Satisfied with her progress, Kristie continued to paint the holly
and berries. She then sprayed the tray with an art lacquer to
give it a glossy finished appearance. A few days later, her work
finished, she inspects it for any flaws.
Step 3 entailed making the project functional. On the tray
Kristie placed an eight inch bayberry candle within a large
globe, wreathing it with a holly garland. Proud of her artistry, she
views her work once more before presenting the tray to Mrs.
Bermon for her use.

Imagine - if you can --
a house without a footer:
just black wallsg a stark foundation.
Soon the house would fall down.
Imagine - if you can -
a world without children
on which to build our dreams.
Soon there'd be no world.
Imagine - if you can -
a class without a teacherg
just books, machines, and tapes.
Soon we'd lose the human touch.
Imagine - if you can -

no froshes, sophs, or juniors.
Alas! Academy would vanish.

We freshmen entered school this
fall, rather hesitant and a bit shy,
but it was only a matter of weeks
before that feeling wore off. At the
first pep rally we attended, our best
efforts produced only a slight mur-
mur from the balcony. How things
changed by the third rally when we
burst out with freshmen V-l-C-T-O-
We enjoyed our new and exciting
surroundings, obediently sat in
homeroom by 8:30, attended all our
classes and went along with quar-
ter courses to which we had been
assigned. Of course, we were no
longer high man on the totem pole
as we had been at the middle
schools, but we are proud to be the
Lion cubs who will continue to roar
louder as we progress.

Strong in endurance
gifted in agility
and enriched in spirit,
- cheered on by loyal fans -
possess but one desire:
to win the game.
Days of arduous practice
seem so worthwhile
when the whistle blows
the refs appear
and the game begins.
But in the end
it is the scoreboard tells the story
- for spectators to observe
- for media to relay.
Victory - though sweet . . .
and defeat -- though sad . . .
must both be taken
as they come.
In the game of life
- some will win
- some will lose.
The pursuit of a goal
is what really matters.

Academy batsmen finished the sea- V 0 l
son strong by taking the Darby uhh, V ,
Mannix tournament crown. Behind
the excellent coaching of Ron Sev-
ero, the Lions finished with a
record of 17-9. Leading the team to
victory were pitching ace Scott Kli-
mow, batting stars Dan O'Conner
and Randy Marzka, Tom Ftettger,
john Klochak, and Iohn Clark in
the field. Klimow authored a no-hit,
no-run gem versus East, 13-O. Kli-
mow also was the only Lion to
become first team All-City. Captain
Dan O'Conner, clean-up hitter,
paved the way offensively as he led
the team in homeruns and batting
average. Randy Marzka placed
second in batting with Klimow
coming in third.
The outlook for the 1977 season is
bright with regulars Klimow, Klo-

Academy High Linksters stroked
their way to third place in City
Series with a 6-9 record led by the
excellent playing of Paul Lichten-
Walter. Paul blazed the greens for
scores in the 60's and 70's, repeat-
edly becoming the medalist for the
match. His talent was backed by
the consistent playing of Tom Gay
and jerry Woznicki. Lichtenwalter
was chosen lst Man, 1st Team All-
Cityg Gay garnering Honorable
Mention on the Dream Team.

Outside threat Dwight "Poo Poo" johnson
hits his "jay" from 30 feet.
The Hilltoppers out - scored oppo-
nents throughout the season with
torrid outside shooting coming from
guards Francis Spearman and
Dwight fPoo Pooj johnson. The de-
fense continually cleared the
boards with towering 6'8" Walt
Stone and devastating Rob Carter
muscling underneath. At times
when the offense fizzled, Coach
Lou DiBacco substituted Bill "Ga-
zelle" joint whose defensive plays
and percentage shooting led the
team to several important victories.
Other bench support came from
David Thomas and Matt
McAllister. On March Ist, Academy
faced Cathedral Prep for Section 1
Title. The two teams were dead-
locked with identical 8-2 slates.
Prep edged Academy in City Series
play with a 7-1 city record while
the Lions finished 6-2. The teams
split the season series, Prep suc-
cumbing f65-63jg Lions f67-63j. This
set the stage for the March Ist mas-
sacre. ln this tilt, Prep employed a
sticky zone defense, forcing the
Lions to pop from the outside. Our
cold shooting spelled doom for the
Lion cagers. Academy defeated
Warren 44-42 in District play and
Prep overwhelmed Hickory. This
meant that a 4th Lion - Rambler
encounter was set, this time for D-
10 honors. Tough practice almost
paid off as the Hilltoppers cracked
the Preppies' zone before falling
short, 57-54. Despite this remorseful
loss, the Academy cagers edged
Punxytawney 62-57 in Regional

The Lions roared to an extremely
successful season, finishing at a 5-3-
1 marker. The season was high-
lighted by Academy's first outright
City Title in 31 years and the nam-
ing of eight members to the All-City
team. Under the direction of third
year mentor Ion Christenson, the
inspired pride of athletes devas-
tated their opponents in the city
with the most stubborn "no name"
defense, allowing only 8.2 points
per game. Unfortunately, the pow-
erful Lion offense, so evident at the
beginning, sputtered towards the
end of the season. The brilliant
punt team captured a spot in city
annals behind Scott Klimow's 40.87
yard average and coverage that
held opponents to minus yards.
Running back Clifton Coleman,
Rob Carter and Matt McCallister
raced up and down the gridiron
under the direction of quarter back
Scott Klimow. His favorite receiv-
ers, were tight-end Gary Briggs,
Flanker John Toran, and split-end
Floyd Gregory. Superior line block-
ing proved essential in victory with
linemen Randal Coleman, Ray
Carr, Dave Hammonds, john Clark,
and Dave Sheldon.

High stands our Alma Mater
Overlooking lal-ze and town,
High in our hearts we cherish
Her ideals and fair renown,
Noble in her grace and beauty,
ln her service frank and free,
Training lives in truth and duty,
Honor, trust, and loyalty.
Then we'11 work and fight for her honor,
And we'11 work and fight for her fameg
And we'lI serve a right in the wor1d's great fight,
We will ever uphold her nameg
For her sturdy sons are so valiant
And her maidens so kind and true
Oh! We'11 "Carry On" till the stars are gone
For Academy The Gold and Blue!
