Our last year in the Albany Academy has come at a time when all the loyalty and faith and energy of a great school have been drastically tested. It is a needless thing for us to say that the response has been magnificent. To you, the alumni, the fathers, and the friends of the School, we wish to express our sincere and heartfelt grati- tude. You have shown us what real loyalty meant, you have made us realize with pride the glorious tradition and the splendid promise of our Alma Mater. Now the time has come when we too must become Alumni. No longer shall we participate in the comradeship of the athletic field, no longer shall we find understanding and inspiration under the teaching of a beloved faculty. But the memory of vvhat we have learned here, what we have felt in friendship and strug- gle and victory-that we shall never forget. lt is a debt we can not repay. As we leave the School novv, still carrying with us its great associations, we can not find it in our hearts to say goodbye. Rather would we borrow a phrase learned in the classrooms of our dearest years and bid it a fond Auf WiecIerseh'n!

I25TH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE 0 0 0 0 VALEDICTORY HOWARD GARBERICI-l HACEIVIAN, JR. We come to this Commencement Day with conflicting emotions- great joy, and deep sadness. This day brings to us the fulfillment of all that we have hoped for, worked for, lived for. Yet we dread to face the very hour of our hopes' realization, for it means the severance of ties we have long treasured. A few brief moments have made us Alumni of our Alma Mater, foster children of a fostering mother. Today terminates one phase of our education. We cannot remain here: we must go on to broader fields of endeavor. But may no day of our lives ever terminate our education. For education is not something which ceases when we cease to attend school. It is rather a continuous growth of mind and spirit. And of this growth the years we have spent here will be a vital part. But we cannot leave without giving thanks to those who have given so much to us while we have been here. What can we say in gratitude to you who have labored so patiently with us and into whose hands the train- ing of our minds has been given? What words can we use to thank you? lt is a gratitude too deep for expression, but a gratitude which each of us feels. Arid our parents-dare we reveal to you those hidden feelings of our hearts? You have made sacrifices greater than we shall ever understand that we might be here. And in return we have sometimes been wayward, obstinate, and ill-tempered. We cannot thank you. We can only pledge that we will try to be worthy of your sacrifices, that we will try to be the men you want us to be. And to you other members of the Student Body of the Albany Acad- emy, and particularly to you of the Class of l939, we extend our heartiest good wishes. lt is our desire that our failures may teach you success, and that you may carry on the traditions of this school as she enters the sixth quarter century of her work, Page twenty-three 0 0 Q 0 THE COMMENCEMENT CUE Classmates: Need l recall to you what must be foremost in the minds and hearts ot all ot you? Our first day at school, our first C-uidon Drill, chapel, games, the Celebration just passed, and many other incidents crowd through our minds like a pageant. Never again will we be called upon to take part in these activities, but the treasury of our memories is tull. l-low swittly the years have passed and brought us to this day with an inward desire to stay here, but an irrepressible urge to go on. For go on we must: We shall step out into an age confused and troubled. But let us never lose sight ot those principles we have learned hereg loyalty, honesty, love ot truth, and service to others. And so, with hearts tull of mingled hope and sadness, we say to the school which we have cherished and will ever cherish, "Farewell and God bless you."

Mr. Midgley was a sweet young thing in a pink bow tie, Mr. Stetson had no moustache, Mr. Lindsey was hockey coach Chall and the corridors still slept unshaken by the pachydermatous tread of Stephen Webber. Few re- main today of the old guard who can recollect that momentous occasion, but among the elect were and are Atwood, Perkins, Richters, Stein, Steph- ens, Were and Wood. Placed under the charge of Miss Russell we set busily to work learning our number combinations lused now only on the football field and in safe- breakingl as well as the gentler arts of drawing and music a la Miss Swan- tee's pitchpipe. We attempted no oratorios or operatic selections, the ulti- mate thule of our efforts being "Postman, Postman", a little jewel long since mercifully forgotten. Then came the summer recess and the first year of our exposure to education was at an end. ln the fall of i927 the little band gathered in the now familiar walls for the next step in its educational progress. Our ranks had been increased by two-a tall, refined, precise youngster by the name of l-lenry Sage and one other who is as well forgotten, Meanwhile we had reached the parting of the ways as Atwood to McLeod became the A Section under Miss Mac- Latchie while Myers to Wood became the B Section still clinging to Miss Russell. That was a memorable year. There was Red Leahy, ridiculed by the whole class for his red hair and great obesity and Winne Druce, the unfor- gettable, who danced about like a jumping-jack. And who could forget the high wall in the yard where we weren't supposed to go lwe were on it more than any other place in the school when we realized we weren't supposed to bei and Stein's gang and Boilingame's gang. Remember "the sweep?" Wowll lt was in i928 that we were bundled off to the old Deanery at Elk and Swan to spend three eventful years. We were C Class now and just beginning to appreciate our importance. The A Section was placed under Miss Swantee but the B Section went to Miss Mills-remember Miss Mills? -ah-er-and time marched on as Burlingame dropped off and we got Page twenty-five 0 0 o 0 THE COMMENCEMENT CUE Cohn and the Major to compensate?? lt was also in this year that Tarrill Weaver arrived to give us our first lesson in profanity and Anthony Tar- taglia reigned triumphant, "de only guy dat could beat up Walkah Stuartf, Along with the crash of l929, we crashed into B Class to find that Schenectady had sneaked in a foul play on us and dropped joseph Wilde lyou said itll Pearson, Meanwhile Dr. McCormick, still a mysterious deity to be regarded with curious and distant worship by us "little guys" moved into the apartment next to the B Class room and saturated us each morning with the smell of coffee and bacon. In this same year too, disregarding the depression, came the start of the building fund drive. The cornerstone of the new school was laid as future President Roosevelt spoke and all our spare pennies went into the bank on Miss Swantee's desk. Who could forget the used book sale we had in the office-or the forbidden backstairs-or vaccinations? And later in that same year Mr. l.udlum's historic one round battle "wid de Saint Mary's boiys" that resulted in Miss jordan frantically paging the police? That year was full of memorable pictures-Loucks playing he was an auto- mobile and the whole class sliding on dishpans down the icy slope into West Albany. But time and the Faculty brought us to the A Class where we found that the class ahead had bequeathed us our Class President and a wild-eyed youngster by the name of l-laley. And then one winter's day, nattily at- tiahed in a bluh sweatah came Bell of Boston with an accent you could cut with a soup knife. Meanwhile our aspirations to graduate into the Upper School had been smashed by the new system as we entered the new building and became the first Sixth C-rade. And this year we were kings. Remember "Pull up your socks, Duffy: here's an elastic", and Robin l-lood Creenough and Maid Marian Stein? f"C-orsh, fellahs, waren't he cute?"l But tempus fugitted and we graduated. "We're in the army now" was the war cry as we came trooping back next year full-fledged First Formers but meek as little mousies, only to find in our midst his Majesty the Commanding Ceneral of the Cohoes Royal ln- fantry Forces, Richard Edgah Bolton. Think of Mr. l-lahn's picture outlines and Butch Kramer's attempts to break rulers on our skulls-futile effortl -and the Prep News with Wood running against Leach as Editor. ln i934 the Third Form started us upward from the meekness and ob- scurity of our second year in the Upper School, Mr. Webber hove in sight and Mr. Lindsey l"now, Wend, you'll do it my wayllll And then the So- Przge twenty-s1'.r IZSTH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE 0 0 0 0 ciety elections with joy to some and disappointment to others. And the Fourth Form with lVlr. Sharpe, the high spot of any Fourth Former's year. By this time the Faculty was growing alarmed under the increasing reali- zation of our scholastic capabilities as Dr. McCormick began waxing ironic in chapel. Remember the month 2996 passed-we were lucky: the Faculty almost passed out. ln l936 came the inevitable backwash, leaving us some of our most stellar members, Evans, Rooney, Purdy, VanAernam and our own Matthew. A good many of us became non-coms in the Battalion this year, some played football, others were elected officers of Societies. Obie Slingerland, by this time, had gained athletic fame and Howie Hageman was striving valiantly to keep our scholastic head above water. But the Boards came and went-with half the class. Those of us who had survived, a noble band, together with the per- ennial C. Z. Smith, Swede, Hannock, and Hume constituted the schoolls upper crust land what crustll for the year, Oakley was elected President, Slingerland became Major and the Cohoes Caesar was made Adjutant only to be struck down in the height of his glory by appendicitis. The football team made history by going through the season unbeaten, and the other teams made good records, C-uidon came with Dick Lloyd's great solo per- formance and Captain Oakley capturing the honors. Providence Street's Noel Coward, C. Wood, played crazy in the school play and Hageman up- held the Class's honor as he became Valedictorian. Then came-at last- the first week in june and the lZ5th Anniversary Celebration. And with the sunset on the western side of the field on june l7th the tale is ended. It remains for a muse of history far greater than mine to write the succeeding chapters of this story. But this is sure: as long as we live, these twelve years will hold precious memories for us, and when we are in our senility, "haec olim meminisse iuvabitf' Page twenty-seven 0 0 Q 0 THE COMMENCEMENT CUE CLASS l-IUMORESQUE BELL-A nice little fellow who developed an inferiority complex when we squared off his nice round Boston accent. As Second Lieutenant of A Company, Squirt wasn't a man to look up to. BOLTON-When we asked the stylist how his nurse was and he answered "Very good" meaning efficient, we knew he was sick. When bigger and better wars are fought, Dick wants to fight them. CLIFTON--"Powerhouse" is looking for a nice college with a brook run- ning through the campus. "Snuffy" fishing for brook trout is like a contractor looking for a needle in a haystack with a steamshovel. COHN- EVANS-l-lank wears the pants in his family and if they don't like it, he gets a new pair. l-le's always after a new polo pony-if wishes were horses, lvlr. Evans would take an awful ride. FORKEL-Well, we can't all be perfect. At Graduation we suddenly woke up to the fact that Kurt was still in the Sixth Form. C-REENOUCI-l-lf john doesn't take the hair out of his eyes, someone's going to enter him in a pet show as a skye terrier. That's the most opposite thing from a brush-cut there is. I-lAC-EMAN-The King among Student Princes writes exclusively in in- delible ink. l-le was the Faculty's one consolation for the rest of our great Sixth Form. l-llLL-Tom knew all the answers to the little lady's questions as long as she didn't ask him where he was going to college. LLOYD-lf Dickie Boy meant anything at all, he probably meant well. lVlACARTl-IUR-"Mac" is the only radical in Sixth l-listory-he thinks Communism is unbearable. The Admiral wanted to join the Boxer Rebellion, but Mr. l-lahn explained carefully to him that it was all over. Page twenty-eiglzt l25TH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE 0 0 0 0 OAKLEY-"Strong Cieorge" was embarrassed by the number of ex-class- mates that shook hands with him at the Competitive Drill. Still, we suspect he and Bolton were the only ones who appreciated Colonel Donner. PEARSON-The problem child grown up-just a problem now. Spends days and nights telling himself stories about geniuses and millionaires who couldn't get through High School. The intelligent "can but won't,' type. PERKINS-Everyone thought Perk was foolish going way to Amsterdam every Friday night. l-le didnit look half so foolish when he came to school Monday morning in the same clothes we left him in Friday driving a 6F Chevie. PURDY-Our john can be neatly described by one word-'inoln l-lis only nightmare is the ever-present image of joe Venuti batting balls all over the lot with a stradivarius. RICHTERS-Ceorge amuses himself by racing to the station and just miss- ing a train he wasn't going to take anyway. The morning he came in five minutes early, Mr Nason sent for Benny to check the clock. ROCKEFELLER-The demon of the marble floors leaves his last class at the first tinkle of the last bell and is half way down Academy road before it stops. l-le likes l-litler, jean l-larlow lshels still playing in Stuyvesant Fallsl, C. lVl. T. C. Camp and just can't wait for us to declare war on Russia. ROONEY-Cap Townsend has a special job waiting for Andy when the next war comes. As a "conscientious objector", Andrew will pick up all the dud shells, lecture to japanese soldiers on the value of Christian ethics and cover the Chinese waterfront. SLINCERLAND-Sling's answer to the Admission Director's question, 'il-low much are you passing?" was "About forty yards." SMITH-Glen is resigned to this education business. l-le was the only man in jo l-lenry who sat still during Newton's experiments. STEINA-"the muskratis pal". Arthur was known for his love of wild life and his hunting expeditions to the Country Club lmuskratsl, Buck- ingham Lake lrabbitsl and Woodlawn Avenue lother wild lifel.

VANAERNAM-jake tried Duke as a last resort-he'd tried all the other resorts land l do mean resortll VAN KEUREN-No one ever used the Academy uniform more practically than Vang he found it a much cheaper way to get to New Haven than the train. Van is remembered chiefly for his sister's picture. WEND-jerry is very careful about his dress. For instance, the day he rode to school to Parade, he was very careful to roll his white ducks to the knee so they wouldn't get mussed. WERE-Theo is an idea man. l-le wants to buy Indian Ladder and modern- ize it by installing an escalator. lndian Escalator-nice, what? WOOD-Charlie's great double-cross, "Why Pacifism is Impossible" ranks with the Great Ping-Pong and Tit-Tat-Toe Scandals of other years.

Cates in l87O. Since that time it has play- ed an increasingly important part in the moral and physical development of the school. To some, not unfittingly perhaps, the Battalion is synonymous with the morale of the Student Body. Its lessons in loyalty and obedience and leadership, its tests in subordination, intelligence, and appearance, these things have proved to be the criterion of our student career. ln its training for citizenship, the Battalion is invaluable, To the Alumni and friends of the school it has gradually become the most significant repre- sentation of student life. Page fifty-fozn' l25TH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE I 0 0 0 This year has proved no exception. Unfortunately handicapped by repairs to the Armory, the Battalion lost considerable time in preparation for the annual Cuidon which finally took place on the twenty-second of April. ln the colorful drill that fol- lowed, Captain Oakley's D Company took the honors while Captains Wood, Perkins and Purdy competed in a series of "32" drills that had obviously been prepared with considerable work. Major Slingerland's Battalion Drill was one of the finest in recent years. At this point the Battalion suffered visibly from the loss of Adjutant Bolton, who remained out of school for the rest of the year due to an attack of acute appendicitis. Bolton was probably the finest officer in the Bat- talion, and his absence during the remainder of nineteen thirty-eight was more than regretted: his conduct as an officer and a fellow has gained him a genuine respect throughout the school that made his sickness doubly un- fortunate. lt was a real happiness to see him return for Craduation. The Battalion officiated prominently in the Pageant and Anniversary Celebration during the first four days of june, playing an important role in the dramatic presentation and including the annual Competitive Drill as part of this great jubilee. An interesting comparison was afforded during this Pageant when a group of cadets representing the first Academy Bat- talion in nondescript costume and Civil War hats were followed by a repre- sentative squad from this year's military organization. The year of nineteen thirty-eight has marked several significant and commendable innovations in the uniform of the Cadet. The new coats and overseas caps of last year have been followed by light fatigue shirts to be worn in the Armory and on the field during regular drill days, the formal uniforms being reserved for parades and other occasions. The Competitive Drill was honored this year by the presence of Major- C-eneral Haskell, who reviewed the Battalion in the final military affair of the school year. With the approach of sunset on june fourth, the Battalion marched off the field and the officers gave their last commands. A memor- able year had come to an end and a memorable experience in the life of every Sixth Former. To the boys of the Albany Academy the Battalion will mean more than they realize in its sharpening of character, its rugged training for intelligent citizenship. lt is and always will be the distinguish- ing note of a great school.

FOOTBALL REVIEW The i937 undefeated Academy Football Team was voted the best team in the Capitol District-and justly. Led by the unparalleled gridiron tactics of Obie Slingerland and the fine linework of Andy Rooney, this year's eleven proved to be one of the most brilliant athletic combinations in the school's history. The team began its season by an overwhelming victory over Coopers- town, defeating their opponents by the score of forty-one to six in the broiling heat of September. ln this game the offensive ability of the team was prominently displayed, although little opportunity was given for any outstanding defensive work. The next game-a night contest with the powerful Manlius team in Hawkins Stadium-presented a different pic- ture. Forced to the limit of its endurance the Academy eleven showed that it was equally capable of great defensive play. Contrary to all ex- pectations, the Red and Black held their rivals to a scoreless tie. Page sixty-three 0 0 0 0 THE COMMENCEMENT CUE ln the third game with C-loversville, Slingerland's spectacular passing attack and l-lill's consistent line plunging led to a close victory as the home team won l3-7. As events later proved, these two players constituted the mainstay of the backfield offense with Purdy's splendid kicking tallying most of the extra points. Against Lenox this unbeatable combination found little resistance as they swamped the opposition 40 to 7, leaving a large part of the game to the substitutes. Academy's annual duel with Troy l-ligh, played in a rain-drenched field, exhibited another phase of tactics as the contest settled down to a kicking duel between Slingerland and DeCeorge, with the Red and Black ultimately winning 7-O. On Election Day the team found itself undefeated and favored to win in its annual tilt with Albany High. Somewhat overconfident in the first half, the Academy eleven fell prey to Vincent's amazing offensive attack as the Carnet and Cray scored the first touchdown. ln the second half, however, the team settled down to some of the most brilliant playing of the year, ultimately crossing the goal-line on a toss from Slingerland to l-lannock. When the kick for the extra point failed, the score stood at six all, and neither team was able to break the tie throughout the rest of the game. Academy's final game with the Christian Brothers Academy culminat- ed in an overpowering victory as the Red and Black drove the ball over the goal-line again and again in a wet and muddy field. The score ended at 33-6. lt was in this game that Charlie Smith played one of the most spec- tacular defensive games yet seen in the Academy, plunging in time after time to check the C. B. A, drive. The record of Obie Slingerland as Co-captain of the l937 Eleven needs little comment. As a great player and a great sportsman he will live long in the athletic annals of the Academy. To his Co-captain Andy Rooney goes the credit for maintaining a morale seldom equaled in an Academy team-a sense of humor coupled with a great line game that made an un- beatable combination. And so we might go down the team, mentioning each man and his record-l-lill's line-plunging, Purdy's kicking, Smith's de- fensive play, l-lannock's spectacular "Larry Kellyl' receiving. But the Team of i937 does not stand on individual performances. Rather it has maintained a fine record by its sportsmanship and its willingness to work and work hard. It is a credit to the school. To next year's Captain, Bill judson, we wish equal success.

BASKETBALL REVIEW The quintet of l937-l938, led by the skilled court tactics of Bill lud- son and the brilliant drive of Tom Hill, proved to be in every way equal to the expectations of the school. Although losing to some of its more power- ful opponents such as the Yale and Williams Freshmen and Albany High, the Academy Team defeated the majority of its rivals, among them such teams as Christian Brothers Academy, Union College Freshmen, Bethlehem Central, Berkshire, Deerfield, Fonda, Cathedral, Cooperstown, and Albany High lin the second gamei, The ability of the team to rally from behind and win by a slim margin proved a major asset to the Red and Black in several encounters, mainly in the Berkshire match which was won by the narrow advantage of two points C27-25? and the Bethlehem Central game where an overtime period resulted in a 27-20 victory for the Cadets. Paced by Hill and ludson, the remainder of the team proved itself a credit to the i937-i938 athletic record of the Albany Academy.

HOCKEY REVIEW This year the Academy puck-chasers, by winning seven games and losing only two came out on the top of a fairly difficult schedule. Led by their stalwart defenseman, Captain Oakley, the team defeated Union twice, 6-O and 3-2, Williston twice, once at Lake Placid and once at Easthampton, and won decisive victories over Lenox and Amsterdam. Most notable vic- tory, however, was that over the West Point Plebes when the Academy Team showed that the world's longest rink was no asset to the opposition as they lost to the home team 4-l. The Williams Freshmen, led by acting-Captain Tom Wheeler '37, proved too powerful for the Red and Black, nevertheless, as did the North- wood aggregation who defeated Academy 4-2 continuing a string of vic- tories unbroken in two years. With the graduation of Captain Oakley, Perkins, Purdy, Evans, and Slingerland, the Academy l-lockey Team is practically forced to start anew. Around a capable nucleus consisting of Captain-elect Burlingame, A. Perk- ins, Wheeler and the Stein Bros., next year's crew must be fashioned, May they be as fortunate as this year's team in bringing their schedule to an equally satisfactory close.

SWIMMING REVIEW Fulfilling in every respect the promise of its last three years, Coach Ritter's Cadet Mermen turned in an undefeated season with one of the toughest schedules any Academy team has ever faced. Triumphing 'Sl-24 in their encounter with the Williams Freshmen-a contest in which they were not favored-the Team went on to defeat Pawling 56-IO, R. P. I. Freshmen, 45-30, and finally won a close but well-earned victory over their hitherto most formidable competitor, I-Iotchkiss. ln their tilt with Rutgers the Cadet outfit took five first places to win a decisive victory, and cul- minated their season by defeating Glens Falls. This year's Captain, Sam Bacon, proved Coach Ritter's prediction that he would be Olympic material, breaking the Glens Falls pool record in the 220 free style with the brilliant time of 2:24, and topping Tom Stetson's record in the breaststroke-a performance many would have thought im- possible. Unlike the Football or I-lockey Teams, the Swimming Team is losing very few of its men. Next year, under the leadership of Captain-elect Eaton, the Academy Mermen may very likely become the leading scholastic swimming team in New England as Bacon, Glass, and almost all of the other members return for another season in the I-IQO.

FIRST ROW-Bell, Slingerland, Purdy lCaptainl, Oakley, Hannock. BASEBALL REVIEW With a fairly large number of last year's lettermen back, Coach Filley turned out a i938 ball nine of more than average ability. The team began its season with an inauspicious 3-l2 defeat at the hands of the Williams Freshmen only to recover in its next encounter to win 6-2 over Bethlehem Central. Following a 9-l3 loss to Williston the Cadet Team then hit its stride to add up three straight victories-over Cathedral Academy, Albany High and C. B. A. After a third defeat, this time by Cooperstown High in a closely fought game on May l3 in which the opponents won by one run, the Academy beat Schuyler High and Troy High. Other victories were added when the Red and Black Ball Club swept over Lenox School lO-2. Captain Purdy's fielding, for the last few years one of the most spec- tacular attractions of any Academy game, this year became one of the most consistent assets of the ball nine. Obie Slingerland, as always, proved a superb athlete in the pitcher's box backed by Catcher Walt C-lass, next year's Captain-Elect. Coach Filley has done a fine job and has worked with a fine bunch of fellows to make a good baseball team. To Captain-Elect Class we wish equal good fortune.

TRACK REVIEW Led by the human comet of the Fifth Form, I-lughie Burr, the i938 Track Team failed to turn in an impressive season. That this was true was no fault of Captain Burr's. Hailed justly as the fastest student sprinter in the Capitol District, Burr again and again led the field, clocking record times that brought back the glory of Al l-lessberg or Bill Cook. I-le was, is, and will be, a splendid athlete and a splendid Captain. The Team's best performances were turnecl in against C, B. A. when they won 67-37 and in the Invitation Meet on May Zlst when they totaled 68 points. Many of these points were made by Perkins in the half mile, Slingerland in the mile, or Were in the discus. lack Perkins, who by sheer hard work and practise, became the finest half-miler in Academy track his- tory, breaking the school half-mile record, ranks along with Captain Burr as one of the finest runners we have yet seen. Fortunately a great many of the Fifth and Fourth Formers who formed a large part of this year's Team will be back next year to constitute the nucleus of the i939 outfit. The future for the Track Team, with l-lughie Burr again Captain, is bright.

TENNIS REVIEW Somewhat handicapped by lack of practice, the Cadet Racketeers of i938 got away to a discouraging start by losing their first two matches, one to the R. P. I, Freshmen by the score of 2-7, the other to Nott Terrace I-Iigh by I-5. The next three court tilts, however, resulted in victory for the Academy as the Red and Black Team defeated Williston 5-4, Milne High 4-3 and LaSalle 5-I. A fourth victory came when the Cadets clashed with Bethlehem Central to win 4-2. Less fortunate with the Williams Freshmen, the A. A. C. Boys lost I-8, only to come back with smashing force the same week to beat Mount Pleasant-a victory doubly laudable because the Mount Pleasant Team had hitherto been unbeaten for over twenty matches, Over Lenox the Cadet Racketeers won an easy 5-I victory. For the season of i939 the Captaincy has been given to Eddie Laugh- lin with this year's Captain, Dick McLeod, still in the van. All but one of the members of the Team are returning. In view of these facts we may predict an even more successful season than that of i938-which is saying a good deal, since this year's outfit, formed largely of Fifth and Fourth Formers, has turned in an excellent record.

"Both the history of the Academy and that of the City during the last century and a quarter are filled with tradition and drama, Both are so in- terwoven that there is no separation. "No higher compliment was ever paid to the value of sound education than by the city of Albany when it gave of its property to found the Albany Academy and by its care fostered the institution in its infancy." Page severity-two I25TH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE 0 0 0 0 ,,, 'Hn THE PAGEANT "A School and a Citynz Historical Episodes of Albany and the Academy -thus ran the heading of the program as an eager crowd of Alumni, Fath- ers, and friends of the School settled down in the Washington Avenue Ar- mory on the evening of lune Znd to witness the result of months of inten- sive work and preparation. But to those who knew the Academy it was more than a Pageant. Under the magic of the pen and footlight the story of a great school had been transformed to the stage-a vivid, living repre- sentation of loyal Alumni, admiring fathers and friends, earnest students. There were more than two hundred and fifty men and women in the cast. Almost everyone was connected in some way with the school, but not a few were rendering their services merely out of friendship and genuine interest. For all this we cannot help but be more than grateful. lt is an inspiring experience to witness the feeling of respect and tenderness that actuated hundreds of Alumni to take part in the Anniversary Celebration of their Alma Mater. Their part in the activities of those three momentous days was undoubtedly the predominating factor in assuring its success. Of the Pageant itself pages might be written and yet much left unsaid. To those who witnessed it, little need be added to that which has already been expressed by hundreds of enthusiasticvwitnesses. lt was written by Thomas F. Woods, prominent Albany poet, Thomas C. Stowell and Lyman B. Owen. The direction was by lvlr. Stowell. One of the most gratifying A Page seventy-three ii 0 0 0 0 THE COMMENCEMENT CUE facts in connection with the entire Pageant was the amazing lack of dull- ness-a fault that characterizes a large percentage of similar school pag- eants. We can only attribute this gratefully to the care of the authors, who never allowed their sense of humor to be submerged in the interest of their subject. Their choice of episodes, taken from the tremendous wealth of Academy history, was both artistic and tactful, combining as it did the old and the new, the serious and the comic, the "school and the citym. Unfortunately we sometimes forget how intimately associated the Academy is with the City of Albany. Following its title, the Pageant illus- trated graphically the development of the school and its connection with the City-the granting of the Charter in l8l3, the auction of the old goal to provide funds for the new Academy and the laying of the cornerstone in l8l5. These scenes were well chosen, well written and well acted. No finer tribute could have been paid the Academy than the spirit of co- operation that induced some of the most prominent citizens of Albany to take active part in this dramatic representation. Who will forget Mayor Thacher playing his honored predecessor in office, Philip Vanllensselaer, lohn Blackburn as Reverend joseph Shaw, or Mr. Midgley as Principal Cates? These finely etched dramatic portraits from our School's history were more than mere good stage performances: they seemed, acted as they were, almost like a reincarnation of a great his- tory and a great tradition that will never die in the hearts of Academy Alumni. To mention each member of the huge cast, and to express ade- quately to him or to her the sincere gratitude of the School, is, of course, a task beyond the scope of this publication. But it would be unjust not to mention here the stellar work of some of those in whose ceaseless effort the success of the Pageant was largely grounded. To Mr. Lyman B. Owen, Chairman of the Pageant Committee, to Mr, VanAernam, our astute and amazingly successful Publicity Manager, to Mr. Titus, Chairman of the Pub- lications Committee, and above all, to the authors, Thomas F. Woods, Thomas C. Stowell and Mr. Owen, the Academy owes much. Captain Townsend, as always, proved a perfect Stage Manager with a capacity 'Ml-sf for endurance almost un- . believable. Mrs. Perkins, in charge of Costumes, Mr. Colton, Business Manager, Miss Sarah -, L l-larper, Mr. Paul Kane and Mr. Theodore Leake, Ill' Page smieizty-fom' AW' P? ial3 S www .t 'l25TH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE 0 0 0 0 all contributed more than their share in their individual duties. When one attempts to criticize the Pageant from a purely dramatic viewpoint, forgetting as much as possible the sentiment that made many of its scenes memorable, one finds that even on its theatrical standards alone, the Pageant was a fine piece of literary composition and dramatic skill. That is to say a stranger, utterly unassociated with the Academy and unfamiliar with it, could have enjoyed and appreciated it fully as much- from a purely critical standpoint-as the most loyal Alumnus. Probably more so. For the Alumnus, viewing the Pageant with a good deal of emo- tion, might fail to recognize in it the beautifully written poetry and prose, coupled with the genuine humor that made it not merely a spectacle but a splendidly composed and splendidly acted performance. ln expressing our sincere appreciation of the Alumni and friends of the Academy, we are not, however, forgetting ourselves-the Student Body. Here we are very apt to sound egotistical. Yet the part we had in the Pag- eant has repaid to us far more than we have given. lt has been a unique and vitalizing experience. lt has given us a feeling of unity and fellow- ship with all Academy Alumni, a realization of the loyalty and comradeship that makes a School mean something far greater than the interpretation we are apt to place upon it in the process of our daily educational routine. One feels that sort of emotion sometime on the athletic field-an uplifting morale, a sense of esprit de corps, or, more properly in this application, es- prit d'ecole, that gives meaning and force to life. lt has made the Academy not merely a stepping stone of our youth, a means toward an end, but Page seventy-five 0 Q 0 0 THE COMMENCEMENT CUE rather a firm beam in the construction of ourselves-a part ofgan end. That the Academy should color our philosophy of life is as inevitable as it is fitting. And that an intelligent and sympathetic Faculty should take part in this transformation is fortunate, But even with these bonds, we can not help but feel that the Pageant, revealing the deep unity of the Alumni and associating the old with the new, has sharpened immensely our appreciation of what the Albany Academy has done for us. For this, more than anything else, we, the Student Body, are tremendously indebted. Now that the Anniversary is over, the danger is, of course, that we are liable to remember it largely as a celebration. Undoubtedly it was that. In the name and history of the Albany Academy we have much to celebrate. But to think of this memorable occasion in terms of the Pageant alone would be like thinking of America in terms of the Statute of Liberty. The Pageant stood for something. lt stood for a deep unity between Academy men, a sense of alliance, a great loyalty for all the School stands for. The Pageant showed, as nothing else could, how firmly grounded in the Past is our hope for the Future. lt brought out, as nothing else could, the evidence of a loyal and loving Alumni. lt revealed, in short, the integral strength of the Albany Academy. ln that alone, it was intensely worth-while, That it was a magnificently created dramatic performance equally magnificently performed, is a tribute to the genius of its authors and interpreters. The memory of the Academy Anniversary and its great Pageant will live long, But let us hope that the spirit it revealed in the thousand hearts that gathered there to witness it or take part in it will live even longer. Page seventy-six 'l25TH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE 0 0 0 0 UNVEILING OF TABLET AND PARADE JU N E 3 R D Impressive as the Pageant of june 2nd had been, the following day saw events no less deeply grounded in the memory of Academy Alumni. At 2:00 the Battalion, headed by Major Slingerland and joined by the Alumni and Fathers, left the Old Academy Building to march to the corner of State and Lodge Streets where the Tablet on the Standard Building was un- veiled. lt was during this same afternoon that the Major placed a decora- tion on the statue of joseph Henry which now stands in the old Academy Park. ln paying homage to the memory of joseph l-lenry, the most famous of Academy Alumni and Faculty members, the School was emphasizing one of its greatest historic attributes. Born in l797, joseph l-lenry learned and taught at the Albany Academy and later became the foremost American inventor and physicist of his generation. Today, over a century afterward, the school in which he served as a Faculty Member, finds itself in a world of science such as l-lenry never dreamed of, yet the memory of what he accomplished, the inspiration of his ceaseless search for truth, remain as lodestars for the young men who follow in his great field. Along with such other famous Alumni as l-lermann Melville and William Rose Benet, Henry belongs to the vivid and unforgettable annals of Academy history. ln the afternoon of the same day, turning from the more serious events of the Anniversary, the Alumni and Fathers were invited to inspect the new school and to witness the Academy baseball team in action. To many of the Alumni the "new" school, was, in every sense of the word, new. We who have stud- ied there so long have grown so accustomed to the comparatively recent building that we almost forget the tremendous and significant change that took place seven years ago when the entire Academy was moved into the con- 1 Page seventy-seven f - 1 it NY ACADEM P' 1 38 wiiimxxxtkwttmy 2 . isp 5 B, ",, at A 4 9 I ,E Y . 3 W 1 ,J -2 5-ii i ' , inm- 'TW P-,, iai3 i ii. L55 at ttxxxxxxxkttkwlllsxkmx 0 0 Q 0 THE COMMENCEMENT CUE struction on the then al- most empty Academy Road. Of course, the effect of the change has actually been considerable. Whereas we were former- ly handicapped by a divi- sion between the Upper and Lower Schools which necessitated more than one building, we are now united in one-a great im- provement. Our athletic facilities have so improv- ed that the Academy now ranks with the finest schools in the country in inter-scholastic athletics. All these changes and improvements, however, to many of the out-of-town Alumni are new. l-lence it was a great opportunity for many of the visitors to be able to see for the first time the tremendous step which was taken when the School changed its location and became the Academy that we know. The same day found further events scheduled for the one hundred and twenty-fifth Anniversary Celebration when the School was honored by an evening address from President james Phinney Baxter of Williams College. Dr. Baxter's splendid talk gave all who had the pleasure of hearing him a genuine insight on the importance of college. lt is rarely that the School has so fine a speaker as President Baxter and it is even more unusual to hear such a fine and understanding address on the value of education. The afternoon of june 4th, following an Alumni Luncheon at the Old School, found the Battalion marching onto the New School Campus in full array for the annual Competitive Drill. Unlike the Guidon Drill, which is an exhibition of close order drill and complex maneuvers, the Competitive Drill is largely an exhibition of drill in the manual of arms. Although it is scarcely as colorful or as picturesque as the former, it is considerably more exacting. Under the review of Major General l-laskell, the Battalion passed through its formations and the Battalion eliminations then got under way. For more than three hours the Cadets drilled in competition for the military awards which are given to those who are judged by the reviewing officers as the best drilled in the Battalion. Page seventy-e1'ght 125TH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE 0 0 0 0 By five-thirty the Battalion Finals had formed with the best drilled of each Company prepared to drill for the final elimination. After a period of grueling manual, the final twelve were chosen. Of these two were chosen as the best drilled and second best drilled in the Battalion. Six days later it was announced that Sergeant McLeod of Company A had won the Rathbone Medal and Corporal Arnold Rosenstein the Townsend Medal. At this same drill Corporal David A. Forster of Company B was judged the best drilled Corporal of the Battalion and awarded the Corporal's Cup at the Alumni Banquet. When the Battalion marched off the field at 6:lO the military career of the Class of l938 was temporarily at an end. To Colonel Donner and Captain Townsend, the Students of the Albany Academy owe much for their patient and thorough preparation, Following the Competitive Drill the Alumni and the Class of l938 congregated in the Academy Buttery for the Annual Dinner and Meeting of the Alumni Association. With the close of this event came the close of the one hundred and twenty-fifth Anniversary. Much could be said sen- timentally concerning these three days, but it would be wiser to leave a memory of the occasion in pictures, not in words. What it has meant in the history of the School, to hundreds of Alumni, to Students, to Fathers, to Friends, can not be put in words. lt speaks for itself-a great celebra- tion and a great tribute.
