THE OLD ACADEMY
THE 1937 CUE Q Q Q
lt was many months ago in November when we first
considered making this year book. We were at the time
rather idealistic-perhaps too idealistic-and, seeing a sales-
man one morning, we were persuaded to sign contracts with
printing and engraving companies with hopes that this book
would be a better one than those of the past few years.
lt is for you, rather than us, to judge, now that the
book is printed, whether or not we were right in believing
we could do something a little different from usual. ln mak-
ing this book we have necessarily been inexperienced both
in the matter of yearbooks and in regard to printers and
engravers. We can, therefore, but hope that what we have
clone is successful. lf this book measures up to your expecta-
tions, we are very pleasedg if it does not, we are sorry.
We will always consider the help we received from Mr.
Peter S. Ciurwit, our adviser, invaluable and we are sure
that without his ideas and experience such a book as this
would not have been possible. For the photographs in this
book, we acknowledge the work of the Gustave Lorey Stu-
dios which have been serving The Cue for over twenty
years. For permission to publish the dedicatee photograph we
wish to thank the Blackstone Studios of New York City.

9 9 Q THE 1937
UR class, the class of l937, had its dim beginning back in the dim
autumn of l925. Coolidge had been president for a few years, that
great rise before the fall, those boom days of ,29 were just starting, and
people realized more and more each day that everything would be utopian
forever and ever. lt was therefore with a great deal of assurance that our
parents some twelve years ago first bundled us off for our first taste of
scholastic life at the Albany Academy. 1
Now on the night of Commencement, there are just seven of the
original twenty or so of that E Class that have resisted those grim two-fate
and the economic depression. Of the Old Cuard only Wheeler, l-lannock,
Bedell, Bridge, l-leisler, l-lemstead, and Smith can receive their diplomas with
Nevertheless, that September Wednesday in l925 was a significant
day for our class as we came together for the first time at that building on
the corner of Lafayette and Park Streets-now known as The Old Academy.
Quite uneventfully we spent our first several years. Our first memories are
of a certain Dicky Niles who used to kiss our Miss Russell good-bye each
day. ln those first years we did, of course, learn to ready we learned to write,
we eventually became adept in arranging colored pegs to the effect of two
plus two are four. On some occasions we were led in calisthenics by some
very impressive Sixth Formers, although we were still utterly ignorant of
the fact that a Sixth Form even existed. Finally, we were sent up to a
little house on Elk Street, there to spend two seasons with the oiled floors
and queer staircases of the place.
Then quite unexpectedly we found ourselves entering the A Class
with a crowd of strangers, boys who soon learned our ways and became an
integral part of us. Faint recollections are brought to our minds: the antics
of one Tarril Weaver, a movie show by Miss jordan's section for the bene-
fit of the New Academy, and an even greater benefit produced by Mrs.
Potter's section-that superb drama, "Appleseed john" with the title role
played by one jacob VanAernam. Remember Miss Mills and Miss Marsh
and l-lerman Lang? Remember chapel on the stairs and under the piano and
how we used to sing about green leaves growing around, around, around
about green leaves growing all around? Remember when Wilkins gave Mrs.
.il Potter the mumps? Remember "C-rasshopper Creen is a comical chap, he
lives on the best of fare"?
Then, with our life in the Lower school concluded with fitting cere-
,tjjj mony at Commencement exercises in june of l93O, we returned to the
l93'?CUE Q is
old building as members of the Academic Department. Some boys named
Edward Eaton and Carl Meyer and Donald Van Olst had joined us and we
were quartered at the foot of the stairs in Miss Boyd's and Miss Shute's
rooms. The yoyo craze hit its hardest that year and recovery had not been
around several corners and was destined to be not around many more. We
organized a sleigh ride that winter and those who knew kept trying to make
those who didn't to go snipe hunting. All year we were saving our pennies
for the building fund and ducking missiles hurled by that Mr. Krogh during
his terroristic reign in the Sixth Period. The following year still as First
Formers we moved to the New Academy and, while workers were still put-
ting finishing touches to the staircases and doorways, we all signed up for
Doc Adams' Radio Club, or Mr. l-lahn's Stamp Club, or Mr. l-licks' Astrono-
my Club. ln those early months we were rather thrilled as we first tasted
the experience of military drill, learning right face and left face iheel of
the right, ball of the left or ball of the right and heel of the leftl, but Tom
Wheeler was the only one proficient enough to march in the parade that
fall. Somehow we managed to get through our first Cuidon and Competitive
Drills and on both occasions we were conscious of real excitement.
i933 passed quite uneventfully while the class matured to the extent
of another year. Mr. Krogh continued to take honors for class bogey man,
but, other than the daily forty minute ordeal with him, nothing in particular
ever happened, and the Second Form seems to be the low point of the class
With the arrival of another fall things began to buzz in earnest. Prac-
tically everyone was on the swimming team and Tom Wheeler began his
climb to hockey fame by starring for the varsity in the Third Form. A
strange fellow named Mr. Loomis blew in one day to expose us to a little
Latin, but confined his pedagogical pursuits to the relating of his experi-
ences as a sailor and to swearing at the class in French. Some of us that
year got into a society, some of us didn't.
Andrew Rooney and Charles Smith brought glory to themselves the fol-
lowing fall by playing varsity football. Our Fourth Form Ceneral lnforma-
tion Contest Committee drew criticism for its weird questions, of which
one, possibly the weirdest, read, "l-low many saxophones are there in Cilen
Cray's orchestra?" Mr. Colton beat out Mr. Hahn for the information prize
and either for that accomplishment or merely as an expression of good will,
Mr. Colton was subsequently presented with a valiant white steed lnot
alive, of course, it was a whiskey advertiser's modell by his humble Caesar
class, led most enthusiastically by the class mascot, Willie Baumet.
c Came the Fifth Form with Marshall l-lannock, President, and Douglas
Bridge, Student Council representative, once more. As had been anticipated,
a certain half or two-thirds of the class were promoted to sergeants and

corporals and on election day the battalion was ready to march at Bleecker
Stadium before the football game in which the Academy was subdued
46-O by the l-ligh School. The Dramatic Club play, "Adam and Eva," came
and was gone, the Cuidon passed in the conventional manner and, flat-
tered at being allowed to attend, we appraised the Officers' Dance as the
best of the school social events. Paul Cohen easily won the Prize Speaking
award for the glory of our class and Wheeler, Hannock, Smith, Wilkins,
and others definitely established the athletic worth of the junior Class
above that of the Senior group. Clinton Brand acquired the Corporal's Cup,
Wheeler, the Sergeant's Medalg and Edward Eaton, the Townsend Medal to
bring to a close the Fifth Form year lsave for the matter of college boardsl
and herald the beginning of the fuller life to be foundonly in the Sixth
Wilkins having been chosen major, captain of football, president of
the Sixth Form and the Student Council, what were left of the honors were
thrown open to the public. The battalion steadily improved in both ap-
pearance and efficiency. For the first time all ranks were filled and the ef-
ficient officers with Colonel Donner and Captain Townsend gave promise
of a banner year. ln December Paul Cohen fell in love with Anne Morgan
and climaxed with a kiss the joint C-irls' Academy-Boys' Academy pro-
duction of "The Cuckoo's Nest". Finally, Captain Eaton carried off the
flags at the Cuidon Drill for Company B, and so elated were Colonel Don-
ner and Capt. Townsend with the appearance of the battalion that they
both appeared at the Officers' Dance for an exhibition of their ballroom
technique. Clarence Thurston Thompson came, and Douglas Manley went,
and johnny Wertime came and went, all to add to the confusion of this
memorable year. As the banquets passed, as the often-to-be-recalled Cue
trip ended with the return to the unstimulating Capital District, as this
same Commencement Cue won its fight for existence, the Sixth Form be-
came increasingly conscious that their twelve years at the Academy were
quickly coming to an end. Competitive drill was not long in coming and the
next week on june eighteenth we commenced with due honor. Thus, we,
the class of thirty-seven, have passed on.
lt has indeed been a memorable year. No one quite dared to simulate
the experience of Stalky and the dead cat, but there have been moments:
Who, for instance, was the cowardly villain, or if you will, the brilliant
jokester, who from the height of some twenty-five feet, with careless
abandon dropped a handful of wet towels directly over the unsuspecting
person of Mr. Crawford? And who failed to arouse the mirth of Dr. Mc-
Cormick with the alarm clock in chapel? And, once and for all, what was
the true story of Mr. Midgley's window stick? These questions, my dear
readers, remain unanswerable, or, at least, unanswered. lt has been a memo-

THE l93'ICUE Q S 0
Bedell-They laughed when he stood up at the Beck banquet, tell us, Wal-
lace, just what was the answer to that story? Our editor has done his
best to make himself believe that a certain resignation from a post'
with the basketball team has broken Coach Morris' heart.
Brand-As official and duly commissioned First Lieutenant Quartermaster
in the Cadet Battalion of the Albany Academy, Clint did . . . no . . .
er . . . or rather acted as . . . was, er, ah, blew his tin whistle smartly
and clearly each week for the duration of ten seconds.
Bridge-During the Spring, there was a movement afoot to rip up the board
track land why not?l and with the wood build Doug an office at the
back of chapel where he could meet his debtors privately. We also
thought of making a statue of Doug draped in many a ripe and also
rare uniform of historic vintage-the statue to be dedicated to those
hardy souls who try to collect exchange bills.
Clark-The gift of the class of '36-which reminds us that the clfss of
'32 should replace the dead tree it left. William was another one of
those cheerful oddities that make America's subways and street cor-
ners the topic of such amusing satires.
Cleaver-l-lolstein didwhis best to get himself nicknamed "l-loke", but to us
there is something very fetching about just plain black and white
Holstein. Among Cleve's repertoire of daily questions were, "Do we
use ink?', and "Can we write on both sides?"
Cohen-Could Paul's parents have had anything in mind when they initialed
him P. A.? lthere isxa famous system and it hasn't anything to do with
Notre Dame footballl. Paul is looking for five silent partners with
which to incorporate. The son of Mrs. Cohen spent his year dancing
and talking about it.
Eaton-Cupid traded his bow and arrow for a machine gun when Ed stepped
out. l-le looked like the original gold standard in uniform with all his
Gibson-Chuck's main aims were to be a non-conformist at any cost and
to throw Landay off his trail. What the Sixth Form didn't do to him
and what he didn't do to the Sixth Form Room leaves very little for
us to talk about.
C-ormly-"Now, there was a traveling salesman and a farmer's daughter
. . . harumph, Douglas, harumph, "Sweet Adeline", in fact life it-
self, assumes a new meaning when interpreted by his ace bass voice.
l-le had such a low voice that they had to move the bank notes down
an octave so he could count the Clee Club concert profits,

hockey-football man with a one track mind. lf only he had had time

l-lume-Dave was born with a silver soup ladle in his mouth. l-le resents
any remarks about the way he's bringing Pearson up. lf fellows were
ships, Dave would be a sailboat.
Kreher-Books open to Mr. Kreherl A close rival to Van Wie for getting
more homework done in class than most of us do at night lwhich still
isn't an awful lotl. They say he can't figure out the Einstein theory.
Balls, l'Vlr. Kreher, Balls! Possibly he'll turn out to be a genius, but
maybe it's only that he's queer.
Kattrein-"Battling Bill" lto our better peoplel led with his chin. l-le should
have known they were only rubber bricks, and then too the boys had
to have something to do.
Landay-Tess is our red,
Violence comes too,

Above me and you. 1
Larson-Hleem, the melancholy Swede", is having a suit made with the
label on the outside so he won't constantly have to unbutton his coat
to show people.
Mayersohn-The K'White Sheep", "Pretty Duckling", and so forth of the
Mayersohn family. When you are misunderstood or have a joke that
nobody appreciates, go to Arnyg he'll understand.
lVlcArdle-Paul didn't mind the monotony of day in and day out of l-listory,
but this day in and week out got his goat. l-le's tired of studying, so
he's going to Notre Dame and play football. After he makes his first
million there, he's going to retire and enter business . . . Pop is one
of those people who speaks for himself, in fact Paul has been speak-
ing for himself ever since we knew him.
Meyer-Carl of the horse and huggy age . . . we don't know where the
horse comes in, but we know . . . he was often represented to be
that thing that is outside people's door when something else is just
around the corner, but that's not so. You never found Carl out in the
cold, Here was one person who never leaned on his shovel.
Plummer-These days Pete has been spending his time wondering whether
people were itching for a bruise, and trying to convince Coach that
the track Captain trained lwe won't mention any namesl.
Roche-Charley is the kind of a fellow that when you see a suit in a cloth-
ing store window and wonder who the heck would ever buy that, he's
Smith-To Smythe goes the title, "Done the Academy for lvlostn. We al-
ways thought that in Spring a young man's fancy turns, but Charles'
"fancy" turns regularly every other month. "l-lonest, fellas, l may be
fickle, but this time l'm serious"-Smitty wanted to be a humorist.
Thompson-The pin boy's enemy! They didn't mind an occasional crack on
the knee, but, when you start heaving that sixteen pound missile at
their noggins, they begin to run.
Van Olst-Don was that little guy you used to see sliding under peoplels
feet on the basketball court. l-le used to collect the Class dues, Meyer
would spend them on his records. '
THE i937 6 W B
Van Wie-The one thing that gave us a breath of sex during the day was
Allen's Coy soprano voice breaking out into screams of laughter just
as the room had quieted down. Saint Agnes, Guides Post, that violin
of his, and the rifle club has had a weird affect on the lad.
Wertime-No one has seen johnny for six months-we think he was blown
away back in january.
Wheeler-No one understands Tomg he'd rather go to bed at 9:30 on a
Saturday night than stay up till one o'clock doing nothing fqueer
duckll. We understand that Tom is potentially another Martin Luther.
Wilkins-Earle wondered why they didn't flavor those rubber things on
the ends of pencilsg he didn't know they were to erase mistakes lhe
didn't even know there were such thinks as mistakesl, A lot of fellows
were for calling off elections and proclaiming Wilk king: King Wayne
sounds almost as nice as Wayne King.
Willits-lf you find some one crawling up your back one of these days,
it's either a caterpillar or Robert. We're still a little careful about
calling Robert, "Bob".
Wisely-joe aspires to the hire arts. l-le can't make up his mind l?l . . .
or at least he can't decide whether to go to Harvard or join de marines.
The reason C company drilled was not because they wanted to, but
because they got scared into doing it by their First Lieutenant.

sions and our blessings in the following manner:
First-To our Head Master, Dr. lslay E. lVlcCormick, we leave one
momentous day in the life of the Albany Academy in which no one will be

mind, and the unprecedented audacity, not to excuse on each drill day the
entire lower three forms.
Third-To lVlr. Evan A. Nason we leave the management of the Athen-
ian First Form Drill with hopes that he may make more out of it than
the Sixth Form did.

absorb the sound of small pieces of chalk thrown into itg also a gigantic
feather which he can hurl to the floor in one of his fits of rage.
Fifth-To lVlr. Lawrence l-l. Pike we give three organs for the chapel
so that he, lVlr. Dodge, and Miss l-lenshaw may accompany the school in a
suitably inspiring way as it sings "Play, Play the Cameug "Mr, Pike's Alma
Mater", and other selections.
Sixth-To Mr. joseph B. Lindsey we leave a scholarship to the New
York State College for Teachers so that he may learn of the methods and
techniques of his alleged professiong and a position as hockey coach at
Seventh-To Mr. Lyman B. Owen go several sixteen-millimeter reels
of the motion picture entitled "Northeastern l-lindustan, its Romance and
Beauty" to show to the school for several hours each morning, and some
bathtubs with hot and cold running water to add to the comfort of the
proposed utopian Fourth Form Room.

he is in his moods. l-le is also to have Fall, Winter, and Spring Seasons at

Eleventh-To Mr. john H. Dodge goes the presidency of the "We're
just buddies" Club which for several years he has been inspiring in an un-

demonstrations to his laboratory classes.
Twelfth-To Mr. james B. Colton, Znd, we leave an ancestry from
.the gods and pugnat from the verb "pugno, are, avi, atus". Also each
and every member of this year's junior Varsity Baseball Team and junior

gullible young students unprejudiced by Republican parents with whom he
may be for the first time successful in teaching his Socialist doctrines.
Fourteenth-To Mr. William C. Ritter we leave ten dollars cash solely
for the novel effect it will have on his pocketbook, and a row of apart-
ment houses across from the school so that his Biology classes wont have
to tramp over those muddy fields to see the first robin.

poem, "Old Silas Webber", and a blackboard eraser with a hole for chang-
ing a plus sign to a minus sign with a minimum of effort.

rear rank of the third squad of the second Platoon of C Company standing

bidden fruit about which he had been wondering all these years. Then he

of her jimmy Colton.
Twenty-first-To Emma goes our college board returns as they will be
of no practical value to us.

Together we are swiftly approaching the climax of our school life at
the Academy, a moment when many emotions well within us as our long
association comes to its close. Perhaps for the first time, we realize the
true significance of cofmmencement, what other classes have felt as they bade
farewell to the Academy with its lasting friendships and fond memories.
This afternoon thoughts reach out to us of what the school has given
us here: fellowship, training, leadership, the beginnings of preparation for
life, To our teachers and our parents, who have guided us ever forward in
spite of our ofttimes apparent ingratitude, we are indebted for these excit-
ing experiences which would have been only fading dreams. They have
sacrificed for us as we must sacrifice for the generation that follows. We
cannot thank them as we should, yet it is our hope that our true gratitude
may be expressed in the lives that we shall live, the first foundations of
which have been laid here at the Academy.
Let us now call back those lasting memories of our school life. We
are the last Upper School class that sat together in the Old Academy build-
ing and we are the first class to have completed the entire Upper School
course in the New Academy. As we graduate, we take with us the com-
rades-hip among boys and teachers alike, the days of athletic achievement,
though not always of victory, the thrills of our first command, and the re-
wards for our efforts, no matter how small in number they may have been.
l-low proud we are as we pause to reflect and almost wish that it were not
all ending so soon! But we must go on into a different world, new and per-
plexing, where our mistakes here will guide us to even nobler achievements.
Behind us we leave another class, and to you, the Class of l938, we
extend our heartiest wishes for a successful Sixth Form year. Now, as
"sadly our footsteps resound through these halls," we must take our leave
and bid farewell to the school that has fostered us for so long, always our
Alma lvlater, the Albany Academy.

appeared those thrilling verses entitled "Science Simplified for Steel IVO1-ks
Stenographersu by my friend, Captain Gerald Firth, of the Firth-Sterling Steel
Company. At the risk of being accused of i'borrowing" some of his "lines"
I want to give you an idea of what might be done.
I studied, first, Petrography
lVhich deals with structures found in rocks and slags.
I then applied this knowledge
To some Ores I found in College
lVhich the Miners used to stow away in bags.
But the structures of the metals,
Be they melted down in kettles
Or rolled to sheet or drawn out into wire,
Soon took my whole attention
And I found that under tension
The grains were elongated, but entire.
I found in the beginning
That annealing produced twinning
Wfith a corresponding drop in tensile strengthg
VVhile on reapplying strain
Hardness returns again
In proportion to the increase in the length.
Then we took up the alloys
Wfhich the engineer employs
And found they had dendritic segregation,
Which will often disappear
On annealing, for it's clear
Theylre, after all, a crystal aggregation.
'W e soon learned that Martensite
Is minutely-grained Ferrite
Wfith sub-microscopic Cementite in suspension.
But it took us many years
To find that this occurs
In alloys far too numerous to mention. -
Of course, I could run on in this way, taking up each topic we covered in
Metallurgy l4l from Ambrac to Zimac, from Carbaloy to Wfidia, from I-Ionda's
magnets to Copper-Beryllium chisels, but these few lines will show you what
might be done, and you can imagine the application in other lines of Human
Endeavor, I mean lecture courses.
And so, apologizing once more for not being able to oblige with an article
for your very admirable publication, I am,

HE idea of having military drill at the Academy was inaugurated during
. the Civil War when Charles Emory Smith, who was later a member of
the President's Cabinet as Postmaster-Ceneral, was made Major of the first
Battalion. This drilling, however, was poorly organized and the only uni-
form was the military caps that were similar to those used today. When
Dr. Merrill Edwards Cates became Head Master in l87O, he immediately
pressed the matter of drill to the trustees who established a real Battalion
in that same year with Ceneral Rathbone as instructor.
This year, the largest battalion the school has ever had assembled on
October Fifth following the reading of the promotions. There were in all
two-hundred fifty officers and men. Colonel Donner and his newly appointed
assistant, Captain Townsend, were determined to accomplish real improve-
ments in the morale and appearance of the privates, and for that reason
several new plans were begun. The demerit system was revised with an
effort to make the stimulus for good drilling greater than it had ever been
before. Certain fortunate improvements were made in the equipment, chief

of which was the
which replaced the
often motley sheep-
skins of previous

in the athletic pro-
gram as a means of
straightening up the
soldiers of t h e
Academy. The prac-
tice of having color-
ed shakos and pom-
pons for certain of
t h e non-commis-
sioned officers was
revived as a further
means of making
the battalion more
attractive to boys
and parents alike.
Following s o m e
six or seven weeks
of enthusiastic pre-
paration, the annual
Guidon Drill took
place at the State
Armory on the
March. The battal-
ion gathered early
with white ducks,
cross belts, sashes, and glistening buckles. ln the company rooms officers
inspected the men while inside, the armory filled with parents and friends.
Finally, with the sounding of assembly at 8:20 began one of the best drills
in many years as the first sergeants led their companies onto the floor.
The parade was formed and the companies were marched in review
and inspcted by Major Carter R. McLennan, R.A. The battalion drill was
carried out by Major Wayne Willcins and it was surely the most success-
ful part of the evening performance. The manoeuvres themselves were in-
teresting and unusual, and they were perfectly executed by the members of
the companies. The floor was then cleared of all the cadets in preparation
for the company drills in competition for the Guidons. A
Captain Van Olst led out first his C Company which fulfilled Captain
Townsends fondest hopes. D Company followed under Captain Douglas
Bridge who made an excellent attempt to retain the Guidons won last year

l-IE i936 edition of the Academy tootball team is, with the season tar
behind, only a record ot weights, and men, and scores, but is such
a record that the school may well be proud of it. For many years students
and alumni will remember the Slingerland-l-lannock pass combination as an
outstanding example of what the boys ot the Red and Black can do in foot-
ball. Score after score was made over bewildered opponents by their bril-
liant playing, lndeed even the attitude ot the powerful Albany High School
team changed from scorn to tearful respect at the sight ot their aerial
But the "Old 59" was possible only because ot the inspired co-opera-
tion ot the interference which set the stage tor the sensational Cadet of-
fenses. There were the co-captains Wilkins and lVlcArdle of the line and
backtield respectively, who were intelligent leaders ot indomitable spirit.
The others ot the line and backtield deserve equal credit and praise.
ln the opening game with Cooperstown on September 28, the "long
pass" was completed in the third quarter for the only score. But the 6-O
victory cost the team the services of Paul lVlcArdle tor several weeks, for in
this game the co-captain was seriously injured by one of the opposing lines-

Cloversville was the second opponent to be the victim of the pass at-
tack, This game, featuring also reverses, end runs, and line bucks by Slinger-
land, Hannock, and Hill, showed the versatility of the Academy attack.
This second victory was scored ZO-l4.
The third straight win is remembered chiefly for the extremely muddy
field at Lenox, which was deluged with rain during the entire afternoon of
October l7. ln this kind of weather breaks may decide the victor, but it
was not entirely luck that the Academy won 8 to O by virtue of Hill's touch-
down and a blocked kick that turned out to be a safety.
The cadets entered the Troy High School game, played on the Albany
field, favored to lose easily. However, Hannock surprised the Trojans with
the first touchdown and the defense was able to hold the visitors to seven
points so that a last minute push made it possible for the Academy to win

with Albany High made it the best game in more than one respect. Properly
the score should have been tied, but an extra point ended another renewal
of this ancient rivalry i9 to i8 with the High School once more on the bet-
ter end of the score.
A fitting climax of a memorable year was the 43-O victory over Vin-
.je centian which definitely established the reputation of this squad. The very
versatile and capable eleven romped up and down the field for six tallies
l and a safety.

VARSITY swimming team which counted only three seniors in its ranks
compiled this year the greatest record for a season ever made at the
Academy. The team, winning six meets, loosing but two, scored a total of
287 points to their opponents' 243.
Capturing every event except the forty-yard free style, the Cadets began
the season with a 43-23 victory over Cooperstown. Following this, the R.P.l.
Freshmen received a considerable surprise by being conquered 39-36 by
the very young swimmers from the Academy. Fourteen-year-old Sam Bacon
turned in winning performances in the l00 and 220 yard free style as his
team took seven of the eight firsts.
The return meet with Cooperstown marked the third straight victory:
Captain Van Wie and Arnie Mayersohn share high-point honors. Then at
Pawling the first Academy set-back came when Captain-elect Sam Bacon,

swimming the 220 in 2:3l 10, was able to gain the only blue ribbon for Coach
Ritter. ln the thrilling meet at C-lens Falls the Red and Black chalked up a
brilliant 36-30 win in which Bacon was nosed out in the 220 as a new pool
record was set. In the Pittsfield Boys' Club meet anchor-man Bolton's ac-
complishment on the winning relay team won for his team a close contest.
The strongly favored I-lotchkiss aggregation was able to get the other vic-
troy from the Academy in another record breaking contest and the defeat
of Glens Falls High School in a return meet completed this season. Athletic I
awards went to Eaton, Captain Van Wie, Mayersohn, Bacon, Class, Pensel, t

Front Row: Oakley, Slingerland, Wheeler lCaptain7, Hannock, Purdy.
HE recod of seven victores to three defeats does not at once seem
significant, but the odds against perfection were many and the sched-
ule was indeed ambitious for the squad which showed up for the first prac-
tice late in December. Almost immediately the players left for Lake Placid
to take part in the Northwood Invitation Hockey Meet, defeating Willis-
ton and Exeter, the team advanced to the finals with Exeter. After five over-
time periods in which the brilliant goaling of Marsh Hannock and the speed
of Captain Tom Wheeler played a large part, the game came to an end,
still tied l to l.
Outnumbered, but not outplayed at New Haven, the squad lost a
decided match with the Yale Frosh, but an 8 to l win over Union more than
made up for this. After weeks with no practice because of weather condi-
tions, the team was tripped neatly by Berkshire, recovering the following
week to trample Lenox 3-l, Generally speaking, it was a remarkable season,
possibly as successful lsurely as publicizedl as the football season. There
can be no doubt that Hannock was one of the best goal tenders the school
has had in many years, and he largely contributed to the phenominal victories
of this year. Tom Wheeler was a skilled leader and by all odds the fastest
on the squad. Captain-elect Oakley was a very capable defense man and,
with Pete Pearson, staved off many an attack from such skilled teams as
those of Hotchkiss, Holyoke, Andover, and Williston. Lettermen include
Burlingame, Evans, Perkins, Pearson, C. Wheeler, Captain Wheeler, Slinger-
land, Oakley, Hannock, and Purdy.

CH EDULED to be the finest quintet in some seasons, the basketball team
disappointed Coach Morris by loosing a .500 average by one game out
of the twenty on the docket. Both the return of many veterans and a train-
ing trip to the South during the Christmas recess pointed toward many vic-
tories, fate did not point that way. As a matter of fact, many games includ-
ing the first Albany High match, Williams Frosh, Union Frosh, Deerfield,
Vincentian, and the second Cooperstown game, were lost by extremely slight
Following four straight victories with average opponents, the cadets fell
into the Deerfield trap, 39-35, as those veteran players fired their shots out-
side the reach of the Academy defense. The team lost to Vincentian fool-
ishly bythe score Z0-l9 at the Elk's Tournament in the State Armory. Yale
was a predetermined victor at least 40-25 because of Eli's skilled forward,
Larry Krieger. Albany High won with a lone score, Troy High did also with
equal difficulty, Bethlehem lost, but Union Frosh won in the Academy gym-
nasium on February l3.
The season was drawing to a close as the squad revenged decisively its
former blow from the Albany High School. The next week-end, both Coop-
erstown and C.B.A. won their matches and in March R.P.l. Freshman got
their win. ln an effort to redeem the inauspicious close of the season, the
team beat Highland in its final court battle. Always Thompson proved very
effective under the basket and Hill showed his worth as guard, Van Olst was
an ideal captain. Lettermen include: Van Olst, Hill, ludson, Thompson, Wil
kins, Eaton, Hawkins, R. McCarthy, and Smith.

HEN the baseball squad trotted out on April Z4 clad in their new
uniforms, there was an excellent opportunity for them to score a victory
that day, but Highland High was fated that afternoon to win 5 to 2. That
first defeat seemed to mean that Captain Marsh Hannock and other vet-
erans such as first baseman Ed Eaton, catcher Bill ludson, and pitchers Tom
Wheeler and Obe Slingerland were not going to prove so successful a com-
bination as had been expected.
However, the following Wednesday a l4-l win over Bethlehem es-
tablished the confidence of the team and it continued that technique for
most of the remainder of the season. The squad took Williston lZ to l l 3
Albany High at home 4 to 3, and Cooperstown High School by the score of
8 to l. Tiny Thompson defended his laurels on the mound on many victori-
ous occasions and proved one of the best pitchers the Academy has had in
Christian Brothers Academy gave a real threat in their game during the
first inning with three men on base, one run already scored. However, hurler
Slingerland tightened down to allow no further runs and the team went on
to win lO-3. Marcus "Take-a-Strike" Filley, working on the Academy
boys for the second season, shaped good material into a superior team which
has been as successful as that of any sport this year.
Marshall Hannock, always an outstanding athlete in all sports, finished
his preparatory school career in fitting fashion as captain. Although nick-
named with some right 'LSacrifice", he was with Slingerland and Wheeler,
an excellent batter.

IRTUALLY the same team which last year finished a .SOO record began
a second season on May first when they were outclassed at Williston
5 to O. ln that game the lack of practice that the team had had was clearly
evident. Doubles as well as the singles matches were entirely one-sided.
l-lovvever, the following week a dry tennis court was found at Pittsfield
where the team beat that High School as thoroughly as Williston had won
the week before, 5 to O. ln that match such doubles pairs as Captain Mc-
Leod and Bobo MacMillan, and Lloyd and Laughlin showed their better abili-
ties. Young Allen Perkins, born and bred on the courts of the Albany Coun-
try Club, came forward with consistent accuracy to win his sets in that
match and the other contests of the season.
Regretably rain prevented any playing until the I-ast few days of April
and it continued to harass Bill 'Ritter through May so that the Academy
courts were not used until the middle of that month, The home games with
New York Military Academy, Mount Pleasant, and LaSalle were cancelled
in favor of rain, and practices were repeatedly delayed because of soggy clay
The team won its shares of games, including the omnipresent "tradi-
tional" rival of the tennis team, Albany High School. lt also lost its share,
notably to R.P.l. Freshmen. With all the present team to return next year,
we look forward to a very brilliant record for l938. Indeed the tennis team
which for many seasons declined, is now definitely headed toward more per

l-IEN Coach Morris and Coach Charles Townsend called the track team
together in late April, the chances of there ever being a track team
worthy of the name appeared very slim. Unanimously elected captain,
Charles Smith was the only letterman at the start of the season. l-lowever,
as the season began and progressed, it became evident that in young Hugh
Burr, Rufus Burlingame, and even Tom Ford were sprinters of unusual ability.
ln the Boys' Week Meet on May 8 l-lugh Burr took second place in
the hundred against very stiff competition to account for several of the
eleven points the Academy won to place fourth in that contest. ln the pre-
vious week it was largely bad luck which allowed Chatham High School to
win 59l X2 to 44l f2 in a very even match. ln that meet baseball-pitcher Obie
Slingerland led the field in the mile while the regular members of the track
team failed to place. ln other events baseball players were on hand to help
out, Thompson and luclson heaving the shot, Wheeler pole-vaulting. Al-
though it seemed somewhat strange for the baseball team to be supporting
the track men, this is a very common practice at other schools.
Schuyler won 45 to 59 in their meet as the Academy still lacking mate-
rial for several events and reserves for most competitions strove eagerly to
win a meet. Berkshire played hosts to the team as it was once more out-
pointed this time by but one unit of count. ln the lnvitation Meet, the squad
still didn't do so well as was expected by some, but the Bethlehem Meet
proved to be the one fairly bright spot of the season,
