THE FINAL VOLUME
OF OUR YEARBOOK
ACADEMY OF MOUNT SAINT VINCENT
TUXEDO PARK. NEW YORK 10987CHASTELLUX 1972
will be the final volume
of our Academy Yearbooks.
The story of the Academy began in 1847
in the heart of New York City.
When the City decided to develop the area
in which the Academy was located
into what is now Central Park,
the Academy moved to the northwest corner
of the City.
where two of its boundaries were
the Yonkers City Line and the Hudson River.
In 1910 the College of Mount Saint Vincent opened
and as the College expanded
the Academy was forced to surrender more and more
of the space it had occupied.
Finally the Sisters of Charity were offered
the beautiful estate of Mrs. E. John Heidsieck
in Tuxedo Park.
which she had given to His Eminence.
Francis Cardinal Spellman.
In 1943 the Academy moved to its third
and final location.
In 1947 Lindley Hall.
the home of Mrs. Heidsieck s sister.
Clara Hill Lindley.
was given to the Academy by Mr. Erasmus Lindley,
after the death of his wife.
Eight years later Mr. George Harris
gave his lovely mansion to the Sisters
and in 1962 Mr. and Mrs. George S. Amory
gave their beautiful home to the Academy.
Countless persons have been
closely associated with the Academy
during this century and a quarter of its existence.
To all of these our Yearbook is dedicated.
First of all to the Sisters. Priests.
and Lay Members of the Faculty.
who throughout the years
have shared with the students of the Academy
their wisdom, knowledge, experience and love.
2Then to the Alumnae and to all
who claim the Academy as their Alma Mater.
These daughters of the Academy
have proven their love and devotion
throughout the years in countless ways.
In a very special way we include our classmates,
those in our original Class of '72
those who have accelerated to join us,
and those who have come to us in Senior year.
The Sophomores who have shared with us
the final year of the Academy
share in the dedication too.
With deep gratitude our Yearbook is dedicated
to those who gave us their homes —
Mrs. E. John Heidsieck.
Mr. and Mrs. Erasmus Lindley,
Mr. George Harris
and Mr. and Mrs. George S. Amory.
We cannot omit those who. through the
Fathers and Friends of the Mount
and the Mothers’ Guild,
or through personal contributions,
have aided the Academy financially
and made possible its expansion and development.
We include, too. the people of Tuxedo Park,
who welcomed the Academy, and with whom
our association has been so pleasant;
and finally those faithful men and women
responsible for the smooth functioning
of the Academy.
During our years here we have learned that
there’s simply not
a more congenial spot
for happ’ly-ever aftering
That is why throughout our book you’ll find
the theme of Camelot repeated again and again
in words and symbols
as we share with you the joy and sadness
of the last year of OUR Camelot.

a very good year
It was a very good year Despite the fact
that registration was down fifty percent school
spirit was better than ever. There were forty-
nine Seniors, this number including a group of
Juniors who were accelerating and completing
two years in one. There were just seventeen
Sophomores who returned, although they
knew the Academy would be closing in June
and they would not be graduating from the
Mount. No Freshmen were accepted. Fewer
students meant a smaller Faculty, and al-
though classes were smaller, there were sever-
al changes in subject assignments. It was SIS-
TER RITA MARY GUSHUE whose program was
Although she continued in her role as Director
of the Academy, SISTER RITA found — or
made — time to teach three courses: Chemis-
try, Biology and Math 12. This was the first
time since our Freshman year that Sister had
taught. Her classes were interesting and chal-
lenging. planned to spur superior students to
new heights, while providing for those who
found Science and Math difficult.
pins her Student Council
SISTER RITA did much to make our last year
at the Mount — the last year of the Academy
— a happy and profitable one. and we thank
her for this. It WAS a very good year.
It would not have been possible for SISTER
RITA to combine the roles of Director and
Instructor without the assistance of MRS.
FLORENCE MacBAIN, her Secretary. Last
spring MRS. MacBAIN was in constant pain. It
was not until mid-summer that the cause was
diagnosed as a crushed spinal disc. Surgery
was followed by a long, slow period of conva-
lescence. during which her hobby of rug-mak-
ing was the best possible therapy and pain was

Below — MR. THOMAS O’NEILL
Courses in Religion were taught by FATHER
PETER MALET of St. Peter’s Parish in Haver-
straw and by MR. THOMAS O’NEILL of the
House of Prayer at Beacon, a layman. FATHER
MALET’S aim was to make students know
themselves and decide what direction they
wanted to take. This involved commitment. To
be fully a woman a person must be committed
to the Person Jesus and His Gospel. A person
had to know herself first; then with all the pain
and struggle that growth and maturity en-
tailed. she moved towards real commitment.
MR. O’NEILL felt that he had found Christ, and
in his classes shared his experiences with the
students he taught, deepening their faith and
broadening their knowledge through this
21New fields and
a new librarian
There were two Senior Classes and SISTER
KATHLEEN NORA and SISTER MARIE
FRANCESCA were there Advisors. Both contin-
ued to teach Social Studies, but each added a
new field to her program. SISTER KATHLEEN,
a professional seamstress, took over the nee-
dlework classes, and under her guidance stu-
dents made dresses, pant suits, culottes —
anything they wished — and all had a store-
bought-look. As Moderator of the Student
Council again SISTER KATHLEEN worked with

program and her assignments required much
independent study in the History Resource
Center. To her program was added Math 11
which she enjoyed teaching and to which her
students responded with enthusiasm. Involved
in both social studies and Math, it is not sur-
prising that Sister included a series of lectures
on the subject of taxation in the first term.

SISTER MARIA TURIBIUS was Sophomore
Class Advisor again this year. Because there
were only three English classes. SISTER was
alone in the English Department. In her cours-
es she included both classical and modern
perspectives. Among the classical works stud-
ied were Oedipus Rex and Prometheus Bound.
A new text was used for the course in Modern
Literature — Insights: English Literature. Stu-
dents in English 11 studied Recent American
Literature. In all grades special focus was put
on creative and journalistic writing. As a result

profitable involvement was the aim of all Eng-
A newcomer to the Mount last fall, SISTER
MARGARET O BRIEN replaced SISTER
EUCHARIA as Librarian. She was also named
Moderator of the Glee Club and soon realized
that this involved much more than being on
hand each Monday afternoon for Glee Club
Rehearsals. The first program presented was
AMAHL and the NIGHT VISITORS at Christmas
and SISTER shared with SISTER MARIAN
FRANCIS the time consuming task of provid-
ing costumes for those who were in the play as
well as those in the chorus. Before coming to
us SISTER MARGARET had taught Spanish,
and she was asked to assist MRS. KELLEHER
and teach SPANISH IV. since MRS. KELLEHER
was including Italian as well as French and
Spanish in her program.
23Sister Rita’s double
role was challenging
We have referred above to the fact that SISTER
RITA was playing a difficult double role this
year. To be Director of an Academy during its
final year and to teach Chemistry. Biology and
Math 12 would be impossible — and not a
dream — for most educators, even if. like SIS-
TER RITA, they had had experience in admin-
istration and teaching. At times Presidents of
Universities have arranged to teach so that
through their contacts they would be able to
know, reach and influence their students
SR. RITA GUSHUE
MRS. VALERIE CLEARY
SISTER RITA works with a group of Seniors in the Laboratory
and their students would know them as people
and not just as names or titles. Perhaps this
was one reason that led SISTER RITA to con-
sider teaching these three courses. Another
practical explanation is the difficulty of at-
tracting a qualified teacher willing to teach all
three courses for just one year. Whatever the
causes, the effects have been gratifying for
both SISTER RITA and the students whom she
a front seat
When MRS. VALERIE CLEARY, who has taught
Math at the Academy for the last three years,
said that ’This year at the Mount was a teach-
er’s dream,’ she was referring to classes so
sized that everyone had a front seat' and indi-
vidual attention made it possible for difficul-
ties to be clarified and problems solved almost
as soon as they came to a student's mind. Be-
sides this, small classes meant that students
worked at the blackboard more frequently and
used the Overhead Projectorto present home-
Again this year MRS. CLEARY taught an elec-
tive ’Preparation for Marriage’ which included
Home-making. Social Usage and Domestic
Arts. Those who chose the course were well
prepared for the Betty Crocker Homemaker-
of-the-Year Competitive Examination as well
as for the more remote future when they
would have homes of their own.
The warmth of Student-Faculty rapport is il-
lustrated by the picture above left showing
MRS. CLEARY. CHRIS CAWLEY and PAT
KRAMER at the Hallowe en Basketball Game.
One distinction MRS. CLEARY shared with no
other member of the Faculty: her daughter,

Mount, and a student in her Mother’s Math

When permission was given to the students to wear pant suits on Fridays, MRS.
KELLEHER was the first member of the Faculty to take advantage of the permis-
sion and wear them too.
After teaching Typing and Notehand in
SKYTOP for three years, MRS.
MARSHALL inherited the Freshman
Classroom in the new wing. The room
was spacious and multi-windowed and
MRS. MARSHALL made the most of its
possibilities. There was room for an extra
set of desks for notehand classes. There
were long blackboards and bulletin
boards for display of work. There was an
overhead projector that could be used in
teaching both Typing and Notehand. It
was the last year — but for MRS.
MARSHALL it was wonderful in many
A newcomer to the Mount and a very re-
cent bride, MRS. KELLEHER included
three Romance languages in her pro-
gram: Spanish, French and Italian — and
amazed all by her multi-lingual skill. With
her youth, personality and teaching abili-
ty. rapport between MRS. KELLEHER and
her students was evident early in the
year. At the Student-Faculty Basketball
Game at Hallowe’en another of her tal-

Progress in art
is evident and rewarding
In no other course at the Mount was it possible
for each student to 'do her own thing’ as it was
again this past year in MRS. MILDRED
FERRIS’s Studio Art Classes. This year she
added metalwork to the oil and watercolor
painting, the pen and ink. pencil, scratch-
board. textile and fashion design, ceramics
and chip carving she had taught so
successfully in past years. Working closely
with SISTER MARIAN FRANCIS and the mem-
bers of the Dramatic Club. MRS. FERRIS has
made stage settings that have added much to
the effectiveness of the plays presented. This
year she painted a stained glass Nativity Scene
to be used as the setting of the Bridal Tableau
in the Senior Christmas Fashion Show. At the

point. Below — the magnificent finished

Three years ago, MRS. SHIRLEY McCOR-
MACK, R.N. came to the Mount as our School
Nurse. She’s been much more than that
She’s taught Health classes she was a prize

She has been our friend and confidante,
and her wit and wisdom have made the worst
cold seem quite trivial. When the NURSE’S
ROOM was moved to a new location we soon
discovered that the room didn’t matter — but
the day did. The room was brighter on the
days she was in than on the days she wasn’t.

but they were fun. When we went riding, skat-
ing or skiing, she rode, skated or skiied with
us. She played the organ, piano and guitar,
and trained us for Guitar Masses each Wednes-
day at Chastellux. She became Moderator of
the Guitar Club and helped us plan Hootenan-
nies. The old saying ’Love me. love my dog!’
was easy in MISS MONTVILL’s case, we all

MR. EUGENE JUDGE. Director of the Glee
Club. He wouldn't be working with just the
cream of the crop — with students with good
voices who enjoyed singing. He met the chal-
lenge and won! Most of the first term was
spent preparing for AMAHL and the NIGHT
VISITORS. The second term was busy too,
preparing for the celebration of the 125th
Anniversary of the Academy and its final

Although the first term was perhaps easier for
SISTER MARIAN FRANCIS, since a repeat per-
formance of AMAHL and the NIGHT VISITORS
would be less difficult than staging an unfa-
miliar play, the second term required much
time, work and planning for the Anniversary
Celebration. First there had to be research into
the History of the Academy, then the organiza-
tion of this material to form Tableaux, the
staging, costuming and finally the combining
of the two groups — the players and the sing-
ers. to make a perfect whole the glorious
swan-song of the Academy and of

Even when she's clowning SHIRLEY is beautiful as in this instance

there was a reduction

boarders, had its repercussions in the reduced nurm-er
of employees of the Academy and in changes of

MRS. MARGARET KLEIN MISS JEAN ZRELAK MISS RUTH O’BRIEN
MRS. GLADYS MOORE, who had been at Lindley Hall,
and MRS. ANNA JENC, who had been at Marian Hall,
were assigned to Chastellux. which was the only Resi-
dence Hall used.
MRS. MARGARET KLEIN, who had been our cook at Ren-
amor a few years ago, returned to us, and she was as-
sisted in the Student Dining-Room and Kitchen by JEAN
ZRELAK and RUTH O BRIEN.
The four men who continued to help us are not pictured
here. They were MICHAEL HUDOK, OMELRON
JAWORSKI, CHARLES BUSHING and BILL SMITH.
For all these men and women the Mount was CAMELOT
as it was for the Faculty and Students and they were like
jockeys putting all they had into the last stretch.
SeniorsOur FIRST Ring Day was in May. FATHER
JAMES BORSTELMANN of Blauvelt cele-
brated our Ring Day mass and joined us
at Luncheon afterwards. We left for New
York by Bus and the matinee of THE ME
NOBODY KNOWS. This was followed by
dinner at MAMA LEONE’S.
Just before Christmas there was a SEC-
OND Ring Day for accelerating and new
students. The Mass was celebrated by
FATHER FLOYD ROTUNNO of Don Bos-
co High School, and was followed by a
Christmas Buffet, a Christmas Skit, and a
viewing of slides of the Prom taken by
CAROL DOUGLASS’S Father.

SEVENTEEN of last year’s Freshmen chose to return to
the Mount — even though they knew they would have to
transfer at the end of their Sophomore year and would
not graduate from the Mount. Far-sighted teen-agers,
they were aware of several advantages the warmth
and intimacy of a small school that they would probably
not enjoy again the opportunities for developing
qualities of leadership and service and finally the
sharing of a historic experience — the closing year of the
one hundred and twenty-five year old Academy.

the Academy was phasing out. Now in 71 ‘STEGS’ was leav-
ing us to go to the new Suffern High School. We couldn't
believe it. but it was true. All preliminary arrangements for
her transfer had been made. The next day — Friday —
would be her last as a Mountie!
CHRIS and TRICIA went home and baked cakes to make the
farewell less gloomy. At noon the seventeen of us gathered
in the Cafteria. We clowned more than ever and tried to for-
get that on Monday we'd be just sixteen.
Classes end early on Fridays so that boarders can make the
2:02 Short Line Bus from Tuxedo. KAREN had disappeared
— into SISTER RITA'S Office with her parents and we
couldn’t even say good’bye.
Monday morning We boarded the Bus AND SO DID
STEGS! We couldn’t believe our eyes. Perhaps it was the
party that did it. Over the weekend she had reversed her
decision. She knew Suffern High School wouldn’t be like
the Mount — and she’d have to begin all over again and
make new friends there. We were as happy to have her back
as she was to be back.
LASSIE HAD COME HOME We thought we were safe and
seventeen. STEGS would be with us. but we had lost CHRIS!
Her grandmother who lives in Massachusetts was critically
ill and CHRIS’S Mother would have to be with her. so after
Christmas CHRIS would be attending school in Boston. Sor-
ry. CHRIS, we've missed you in many ways!
GUILDThe fine spirit at the Mount
in is final year
was due to its
outstanding STUDENT COUNCIL
The last year of any organization could be either one of
triumph and glory or one of sadness and failure. In a school
like ours two major influences determining the character of
our last year were
1) the character and enthusiasm of the Faculty
2) the leadership and spirit of the members of
the STUDENT COUNCIL.
Fortunately for all of us these two influences reached an
apogee in ’71-72. We have referred to the spirit of the Fac-
ulty in the section devoted to them. This spirit blossomed
as the months passed, and the Birthday Party for MRS.
McCORMACK was followed by one for MRS. MARSHALL and
a Christmas-Tree-Decorating-Party at the home of the
MacBAINS the day young BILL returned from Vietnam.
Members of the Faculty. Students and Friends celebrated
Midnight Mass in the Chaoel at Chastellux. Now as we go to
press we look forward to similar proofs of Faculty Spirit in
our last term.

83The honor most coveted
by all students
is Membership in the
National Honor Society
The characteristics of students chosen for the N-H-S are
outstanding SCHOLARSHIP, LEADERSHIP, CHARACTER
and SERVICE. On these pages we have featured the four
Seniors who were selected as Members in their Junior
year. Many students measure up to the standards of
Scholarship and Character required, but the field nar-
rows down when the criterions of Service and above all
of Leadership are applied. The write-ups of ANNE. SHAR-
EE. MARIBETH and LIZ explain why they have been cho-
sen. We have also included a list of those selected for
membership in 1971-1972 — with our congratulations!
ANNE COYLE was Vice President of her class as a Fresh-
man, Class Representative to the Student Council as a
Sophomore. Class President as a Junior, and President of
the Student Council, the highest possible tribute to her
Leadership, as a Senior. She has been active in Athletics,
playing on the Varsity Basketball Team this year. She has
been a member of the Forensic League and has taken part
in Class Plays. As a Sophomore she was a member of the
Newspaper Staff. In her first and fourth years she belonged
to the Glee Club. By class vote she was chosen to be the
Bride in the Senior Fashion Show — a coveted role.
If LEADERSHIP has been ANNE COYLE s strong point
throughout her four years, SERVICE perhaps has been LIZ
SEWARD’s. In a quiet, unassuming way. she has been on
hand when help was needed. SERVICE is a way-of-life with
LIZ and vacations and weekends find her helping out as a
Nurse’s Aid. School Activities for her included Athletics,
Dramatics. French Club. Glee Club. Guitar Club. Math
League. Service Club — the two crowning honors — Editor-

85Meetings of the
FATHERS and FRIENDS
and the MOTHERS’ GUILD
The drastic drop in registration due to the irreversible
decision to phase out the Academy, led to the sugges-
tion that combination meetings of the FATHERS and
FRIENDS and the MOTHERS’ GUILD be held on Sunday
afternoons. The plan has been successful. A Cocktail
Party has been included at each meeting, giving an
opportunity for the parents present to get to know
each other. The pictures on these pages were taken at
the December Meeting.
It was at this meeting that MRS. DONALD
McCORMICK, representing MRS. MATTHEW BOHRER,
President of the MOTHERS’ GUILD, who was unable to
be present at the meeting, presented SR. CONSTANCE

On a golden autumn day the MOTHERS' GUILD held
its Luncheon and Fashion Show at the Hackensack
Golf Club in Oradell, New Jersey. Under the leader-
ship of MRS. DONALD McCORMICK as Chairman,
and MRS. MATTHEW BOHRER as President of the
MOTHERS' GUILD, and with the cooperation of an
efficient Committee, the function was a complete
success. Members of the Committee included MRS.

JAMES MULVEY. MRS. EDWARD O'CONNELL. MRS.

from the success of the Luncheon. The MOTHERS'
GUILD decided to contribute $500.00 of the pro-
ceeds to the Yearbook Fund — a windfall that came
as a delightful surprise and which was announced
at the December Meeting referred to on the preced-

would enjoy and set the date — October 2nd. ISA.

morning to get all the special ingredients needed.
IVE. MARI and the other Spanish boarders spent
the morning at Chastellux. designing menus and
place cards with typical tropical scenes.
As soon as the shoppers arrived from New York
all were ready to start cooking. Soon all you
could hear in the Kitchen were 'Prueba esto’ and
'Ay, bendito, se me quemo.’ At 8:00 p.m. the
doors of the Student Dining Room were opened
and the delicious buffet was ready. Against the
background of merengue music. Sisters and stu-
dents enjoyed the typical Puerto Rican Dinner.

117Last year s Seniors had 'Dared to be different’ and
had selected a yellow floral print dress for Com-

al white for ours. The Red Roses we would carry
would provide the only touch of color. Once again,
MRS. SEIGEL of SHULMAN S BRIDAL SHOP in White
Plains, arrived at the Mount with a carload of beau-
tiful gowns — SO beautiful that a selection was a bit
difficult. Ten or twelve girls were selected to model
the dresses. Few of the dresses were white, there-
fore we had to picture how a dress we were seeing in
a color would look in white.

Again and again throughout our Yearbook you
have seen the symbol that appears on this page.
Have you studied it wondered about its

If you have read our book carefully
and thoughtfully you are aware that
this Epilogue is the concluding
section of our Yearbook, and it is
also the Epilogue of the one
hundred and twenty-five year story
of the Academy. It is especially this
second phase of the Epilogue that
gives you the key to our symbol.
First there is a PHOENIX, the mirac-
ulous bird the Egyptians associated
with the sun-god. According to a
fable the bird would be consumed in
fire, and would then rise in youthful
freshness from its own ashes. The
Academy has already flourished in
three locations: first, in what is now
Central Park: then on the Hudson,
just below Yonkers: and now. for
almost thirty years, here in Tuxedo
Park. Who can deny with certainty
that our Academy will not rise again
from the ashes of the present im-
molation in some new location?
Even if it does not appear again as a
revitalized school, it will live again in
each Alumna. Just as Paul wrote to
the Christians of his day ’You are
my Epistles, written in my blood'
so is each Alumna the personifi-
cation of the Academy and its

102. 118. 119. 132. 133Our indebtedness to MR. and
MRS. WILLIAM A. BROOKS, MR.
and MRS. VINCENT E. IORIO and
MR. and MRS. PETER L. KEANE is
very great. Not only have they
contributed generously to each
volume of our Yearbook while
their daughters were students at
the Academy, but they continued
to support our book even after
their daughters had been
As President of the MOTHERS' GUILD. MRS. WILLIAM BROOKS saw to it
that the GUILD contribute generously to our Fund, and perhaps this
year s windfall of $500.00 was inspired to some extent by the tradition
of Yearbook support that she established. While his wife was playing a
leading role in the MOTHERS GUILD. MR BROOKS was an active
member of the FATHERS and FRIENDS of the MOUNT
MR. IORIO was also an active member of the FATHERS and FRIENDS.
Chairman of its Fund Raising Campaign, and Vice President of the or-
ganization. He was a member of the ADVISORY BOARD of the Acade-
my. MR IORIO never lost an opportunity to support our Yearbook,
and even after ELIZABETH S graduation, he continued to be concerned
about the Academy
During MR. KEANE’S term of office as President of the FATHERS and
FRIENDS of the MOUNT, we realized what a champion of our Yearbook
he was. it was he who suggested an increase of the Club's Yearbook
contribution from seventy-five to a hundred dollars, and that a check
be given for photographic expenses too At SUE s graduation he was
the first to assure us he would be a Golden Rose Contributor, and there-
fore. like Abou Ben Adhem. 'his name led all the rest.’
127In June 1971 S T A G E 1 of the Yearbook plan-
ning was begun. Limited registration for our
final year at the Academy meant a fifty percent
reduction in the finances we could count on
from student subscriptions. This posed a seri-
ous problem. Would the final Yearbook of the
Academy have to be smaller, thinner, less col-
orful than our other Yearbooks? It would have
to be unless we could raise approximately $2,
500.00 to supplement the amount we could
count upon from subscriptions and later

At this point the idea of GOLDEN ROSE CON-

ALL students attending the Academy in ’70-'71,
Business Contributors and Friends of the Acad-
emy all received an appeal. If they would con-
tribute to the Yearbook Fund before June 30,
1971, they would be listed as GOLDEN ROSE
CONTRIBUTORS. Sponsors and Special Pa-
trons would receive a Golden Rose and a Certif-
icate. The response was enthusiastic. Before
the end of June we had almost reached our

vide all services to the residents of
TUXEDO PARK. Now it sells and
services oil burners, sells fuel oil
and provides plumbing services to
the Park and to the town as well.

130THE OKONITE COMPANY
The OKONITE COMPANY was established in 1878. A pioneer in the
electrical wire and cable business, it first made insulated wire for
SAMUEL B. MORSE, inventor of the telegraph.
Today OKONITE PLANTS produce more than 5000 different prod-
ucts. They range from wires the size of a human hair to cables as
large as five inches in diameter.
The Company is a leader in supplying wire and cable used by the
power and light companies to carry electricity to huge cities and
industrial plants. It also produces cables that are used to supply
power to run trains and signal systems for railroads, shovels and
drilling equpment for mines, and motors for large ships and sub-
marines. Telephones, heat and light and electrical appliances —
these are a few household items requiring products manufactured
The nation's demands for electric power are expected to triple by
1985. As a result of its modernization and growth programs, its
research activities and development of a skilled work force. THE
OKONITE COMPANY is prepared to supply the wire and cable need-
ed to meet the challenge.

131The afternoon we chose for the pictures at the
Bank, happened to be the one chosen by MRS.
GLADYS BRENTNALL for her departure for Florida.
It was a bitterly cold day and we envied her! Fortun-
ately for us, MRS. RITA GANNON was available, and
we snapped a picture of her as she was explaining
to PRISCILLA and LIZ the advantages of Traveler’s
Checks for their coming trip to Italy.

half a block from the Bank to the TUXEDO
PARK PHARMACY. INC. Like so many stores of
its kind, it has its Soda and Lunch Counter, its
Stationery and Greeting Card Department,
plus all the usual supplies and knicknacks cus-
tomers would need or could be induced to
buy. Naturally it is a favorite haunt of Acade-
my students, especially the Seniors
