ELPHI ACADEMY was founded in 1863 by john Lockwood a name
famlllar to all of us as one of his projects in the Held of higher education
Startmg with one student ln September of ltS First year its ranks mcreased
until there were twenty eight enrolled by the end of the second semester
In 1871 the first graduatlncf class consisted of one student The well known
school colors brown and gold were adopted in 1886
name and colors are known to many in the metropolitan area We feel sure
it will continu to command in the future the same respect for its attain
ments ln scholarshlp and athletics whlch it has enjoyed ln the past
Because our school has such a long and interesting history a history in
which we take a very natural prlde we the seventy eighth graduatmg class
have dedicated our yearbook to the traditions of Adelphi
' . 6 . . -
Through the years, our school has risen slowly but steadily, until its
It is with both affection and gratitude
that the seventy-eighth graduating class of
Adelphi dedicates this Adelphic to you, Mr.
Johnson. You have been our principal, ad-
viser to the senior boys, and our history and
civics teacher-and we found that time could
not wither nor custom stale your untiring
efforts in our behalf, in any of these capaci-
ties. We greatly admire the capability with
which you administer the affairs of the school
as principal. The boys among us are deeply
indebted to you for your help and advice
concerning our post-graduation plans.
But more than anything else, we will all
remember how you made history and civics-
subjects generally considered dry-come alive
by communicating to us your intense interest
in them. Your humor, down-to-earth manner,
and your vivid portrayals were a constant
source of enjoyment to us. Ave atque vale.
HEADMASTER S MESSAGE
N A COUNTRY and a clty where almost everythmg IS new often
brand new even It IS unusual to find a school as old as Adelphi The very
name w1th 1ts smack of classlcal learnlng speaks of another century
In the course of nts many decades of exlstence a host of trad1t1ons have
grown up here at Adelphi tradltlons whlch are as much a part of the school
as the brlcks that make 1ts walls Such customs as openmg the dally session
w1th the Lord s Prayer the annual charlty bazaar the carol Slflglflg on the
sta1rs at Chrlstmas tlme And less tangible thmgs l1ke our code of good
the way everybody pltches 1n to make school projects a success These
are only a few of the tradltlons that give our students something concrete
and Worthwh11e to remember when ln later years they turn back to thelr
schooldays ln a remmlscent mood
But the greatest trad1t1on 1n any school IS an mdelinable one com
pounded of the do1ngs and the harmless mlsdomgs the hopes work and
laughter of a lot of boys and glrls Really lt IS the boys and glrls them
selves In thls peclal sense of the word the class of 48 l1ke xts predeces
sors IS the favormte and the oldest tradxtlon of Adelphx

OR TWELVE YEARS the 1llustr1ous class of 48 has been treadmg
a path of fame to graduation Many of those who started wxth us 1n the
first grade changed to dlfferent treadmllls but others took their places and
helped our happy throng reach the1r present helghts of attamment
What fun It IS to remember our early years' Under the Inspired gu1d
ance of Mlss Otls we made and operated a store and post office In th1rd
grade we put on our first pageant a lavlsh extravaganza whlch would be
the envy of Cecll B DeM1lle Thls was an Amerlcan Indlan productlon
ln which we sewed our own be frmged and wampumed costumes ground
corn w1th a mortar and pestle made a bark wlgwam and composed songs
whlch we sang leapmg around a cerernomal fire before the eyes of our
startled parents Then 1n fourth grade we nearly enbalmed our teacher ln
an elaborate Egyptlan tomb CThe tomb was really the cloakroom whlch
we transformed by palntmg authentlc hleroglyphlcs on the wallsj The
fourth grade was also a theatrlcal year memorable for the masterplece
Sokar and the Crocodzle and our part ln The Seven Dwarfs In the fifth
grade there was an event which foreshadowed the mcomparable Adelphxc

Though, in the beginning of the year, from our superior height as
seniors. we regarded the efforts of the freshmen somewhat quizzically, we
are now willing to take our hat off to them. They have pitched into all
activities and have often come out on top We feel certain that they will
be as loyal to the school as we have tried to be We even envy them a
little for they still have three years ahead of them in Adelphi

Although there are few boys to choose from,
Adelphi has managed to muster a group of daunt-
less and spirited players who have fought loyally
against overwhelming odds. Amazingly enough,
despite our limited numbers, the Adelphi football
team scored the most points against Horace Mann.
Not a bad record!
Adelphi's basketball team was received this year
with increased enthusiasm. They began the season
by defeating the First team they played against.
Although they were handicapped by their insufficient
height, they counteracted this difficulty by their true
Tennis is one of the more popular fair weather
sports, One need not be a member of the varsity to
enjoy this wonderful game, as is proven by the large
number in our school who participate. Energy and
enthusiasm are not lacking when these fellows take
to the courts.
Although bowling is not a traditional sport at
Adelphi, the introduction of this activity this year
met with great success. So great was the number
who flocked to the alleys that some of the alleys
were used by six or eight people at once.
Inspired by their new coach, Miss Cooke, the
girls hockey team started the season with a game
with Birch Wathen. This outlet for feminine ener-
gies has become an example, par excellence, of tra-
ditional Adelphian spirit. Defeats and victories are
soon forgotten-fellowship lasts forever!
So accurate .
they wear a hole in the basket.
Although Adelphi has no share in the Kentucky
Derby, it could offer some fine entries, for agility,
grace, beauty and skill all go to make a winning con-
testant. Once every week the girls go out for a trot
in the park. This serves as beneficial exercise, lim-
bers up the muscles and develops an insatiable
Adelphi's oldest fraternity, Alpha Phi, goes out
of its way to further the traditions of the Academy.
Admitted in 1890, its members have since then
graced the honor rolls, literary staffs and teams. A

Unique for their versatility. these girls are all
out for dear old Adelphi Academy. They defend her
name by adding their talents to her numerous activ-
ities. You'll always find them wending their way
with smiling faces.
DELTA THETA io! 1

Delta Theta was originated in Adelphi in 1896.
Through the years the names of many of its mem-
bers have appeared on the honor roll and on the list
of athletic awards. Though all but one of the old
brothers will soon be gone, the new members will
This group of enthusiastic Adelphians enters
into almost all the school activities. We find them
on the honor lists, in sports, leading the Extension
Society and working hard on the Adelphian and
Adelphia staffs. They played a spirited part in
engineering the successful Fratso dance this year.

This is the First year since the 1920's that Adel-
phi has had a choral reading club. Under Miss
Palmer's able guidance, this vowel-slinging, meter-
minded group spends every Thursday afternoon
chanting songs without music. We hope that some
day they will give a performance in assembly.
In plane English, this club has been hammer-
ing its way to success. No one foresaw that this
group wood get down to brass tacks. Under Mr.
Williams, the various members do their level
best and have an opportunity to make use of their
The discussion club consists of a group of
students who are interested in important political
and international questions. They argue the ques-
tions back and forth, and though they seldom reach
a conclusion, they have a lot of fun and gain a lot
Buck Rogers is small change compared with
the Electronics group. Although we do not expect
another atomic bomb to be produced under Mr.
Gaul's supervision, still we advise one and all to
stay clear of room 86 during club periods. Judging
from the weird contraptions scattered around up
there, the members must be having a marvelous
The Art Club, aslde from functioning merely
for amusement and improvement, also serves a
practical purpose. Its members illustrate the Adel-
phian and can always be counted on to design clever
posters for coming events.
Although we don't know what this busy group
is rehearsing, we are eagerly awaiting their final
production. The curiosity of the staff has been
greatly piqued by the sight of members mysteri-
ously flying around with wet rags and by the inter-
mittent arrival of huge cans of paste, accompanied
by the demand, Open this! at the most incon-

staff was found when Wfltlflg the 1nd1v1dual blographles
To round out thls comment we have decided to g1V6 a frank play by
play report of how the llterary part of the yearbook came 1nto bemg
We doubt lf you ll be surprlsed
Our work began w1th the wrltlng of the Foreword At that t1me we
were hesitant neophytes and so after many laborlous hours lmbued wlth
the rdea of mjectmg the tradltxons of Adelphl lnto our work we achxeved
a first draft as ponderous and full of detall as the Constitution of the
Then havmg exhausted our pent up energy we fell mto the self
confident lethargy common to yearbook staffs whxle the deadlme IS st1ll
far far away Durmg thxs perxod of dellghtful mdolence we started to
wr1te the blographles Here we ran lnto dlfficultles Dlfiiculty No 1 We
were at a loss to find words whlch would not be corrected Dlfficulty
No 2 Some people have Just done more than others during the1r four
years 1n hlgh school In trymg to solve th1s difficulty the staff h1t upon
no method by whlch the wrlte ups of these people could be made as long
and compl1mentary as those of the1r more energetlc classmates
The llttle comments whrch you w1l1 find at the end of your blographles
were taken from famous Amerlcan quotatlons They were meant to be
characterlzxng Slnce however thexr source 1S history and they are 1m
mortal you can look upon them as laudatory lf you 1ns1st and are the
Our most enjoyable moments were spent upon The Teachers Page
and The Senlor Reflector Durlng the wrltlng of these pages we had
many opportunltles to set down br1ll1ant w1tt1c1sms about practlcally every
body You may be sure that we took advantage of our opportumtles w1th
shouts of glee but our valor havmg been rubbed out by our advlsers
dlscretxon the world and the rest of Adelphl w1ll never know how funny
we can be
We have one more confesslon to make Thls revelatory article occuples

The Senlor Spotllght Due to the staff s obvlously congemtal dlSlI1CllI'la

And now havlng let you ln on the secret of how our part of the year

there lS room for lmprovement but t1me IS runnlng short and though lt
IS w1th great reluctance we are compelled to lay down our pens Our
work IS done

HEN, IN 1944, we came to Adelphi as freshmen, we considered the
four y-ears before us an eternity in which we would have immeasurable
time to fulfill all our ambitions Now that the four years are spent we
realize with some regret that we have all made mistakes Most of us feel
that better scholastic records might have been attained and that our ac
complishments mlght have been more numerous and more commendable
However these things are behind us now and the past cannot be altered
With our graduation this episode in our lives will come to a close never
to be reopened except perhaps as cherished memories in the dim and un
