e Presented by
'Phe Graduating Class
The Albany eeeeemy -- eleeny, New me
To Mr. Pike, in grateful recognition of the sincere advice, criticism, and
instruction he has given to ours and to twenty-two other graduating classes
at the Academy, the Sixth Form dedicates the 1944 CUE.
CI . . tile virtue that conquers passion,
And the sorrow that hides in a smile,-V
It is these that are worth the homage of earth,
For we End them but once in a whilef'
MR. LAWRENCE H. PIKE
With the coming of Graduation we
of the Senior Class look forward with
mixed emotions and with the question-
ing thought, "Where do we go from
here, boys-where do we go from
here?" We experience a feeling of ex-
hilaration at having completed our
high school education. But this is tem-
pered by a queer sensation in the pit
of our stomachs caused by the knowl-
edge that our class is breaking up.
It will be a difficult and delicate
transition from an atmosphere in which
most of us have spent a good part of
our lives, new surroundings, new faces,
new duties-all will challenge our
adaptability. As we go forth into the
ever-changing world, we leave behind
this record of our last memorable year
at the Academy . . .
Hoping that you our ablest critics and most enthusiastic friends, enjoy our book,

MR. HARRY E. P. MEISLAHN, Headmaster
On the shoulders of the faculty rests the responsibility for not only educating
but developing the character of the students. To both these important ends they
are dedicated and have carried out their duties in a highly laudatory degree.
Although the curriculum has been somewhat altered and adapted to the
exacting demands of wartime, the main purpose of the school is still to prepare the
boy for a rich and serviceful life whether in war or in peace. Under the competent
guidance of our new headmaster and the faculty, we have been enriched by learning
and its applications and inspired in our associations with them. A
In the English department we were led by Mr. Pike to enjoy literature, both
national and foreign, and to express ourselves correctly and with poise in writing
Through Mr. Webber we gained an insight to the intricacies of mathematics
and a valuable schooling in accuracy plus great helpfulness to those anticipating
Mr. Midgley's service to the nation was, we hope, the production of intelligent
and well-informed citizens. His history classes were forever brain-teasing and
In the Held of science, Mr. Holmes did an admirable job in awakening the
scientific spirit among us.

Mr. Fullaytor, Mr. Colton.
Front4Mr. Lindsey, Mr. Sharp, Miss Kermeth, Mr. Meislahn, Mr. Pike, Mr. Morris,
As ever, the languages department with Mr. Colton, Mr. Lindsey, and Mr.
Sharp added to our general fund of culture and background.
Our training in athletics, in accepting victory or defeat with equal grace, we
owe to Coaches Morris, Sabisch, and Townsend, with the assistance of Mr. Colton,
whose Commando Course has aided much in building healthy bodies.
To Colonel Conners fell the job of instilling discipline in the cadets and also
knowledge of practical concern in military affairs. In both these aims he well
fulfilled his obligations.
Miss Henshaw, with a requisite infinite patience, has added greatly to the
appreciation of music by those in her classes.
e Next year's group of second and third formers will have been well-equipped
for the year ahead under the leadership of Miss Kermeth and Messrs. Easton,
Fullaytor and Totten.
Looking back over the years, we realize and come to appreciate the benelicent
influence exerted on us by the members of the faculty. To those who 'Laiiiect
eternity" we extend our sincere thanks and continued good wishes.

Class Hi tor
"Gone are the days when our hearts were young and gayf, Lest we lose the
memory of those golden years of complete freedom and no responsibility, let us
pause, before we step out into lifels busy thoroughfare, and look back a while to
the days of our youth. . . A
Do you remember, you original four, your nrst impression of the school?. . .
that day in the late summer of the dark, dark year of 1931 when you tagged silently
along behind your parents as they were shown about the nearly completed school
by Doctor McCormick. . .
Remember the first day of school? . . . how your mother got you all dressed
lip and rushed you off in the Model-A to a classroom Hlled with silent wide-eyed
Hve-year olds and talking parents . . . hon' suddenly they were gone and you
were left with your first teacher. . .
Remember that first year? . . . how you learned to tell time, how you hid
behind the piano, how you mastered the triangles in the Kindergarten Orchestra,
how you were scared to death by the Indian stories of Chief Crazy Bull. . .
Remember your progress through the grades? . . . the huge houses you built
of blocks and then toppled . . . the Hrst basic reader . . . introduction to com-
petitive sports, Reds versus Blacks . . . the candy rewards for correct piano lessons
under the sinister Miss Heisler on the Third Floor . . . the first time you really
understood what all the talking was about in Monday Chapel . . . your salutes to
the flag and 'LI pwedge aleechantsv and 'ffor purple mounted majestiesn . . . dis-
cipline and beauty with Miss Davenport . . . the class picnic at which "Pop" got
his nickname . . . the gang warfare in the fields across the road and in the forest
that grew down in back by the boiler room . . . the trouble you had understanding
division . . . the excitement that arose one day when Artie chased Jack all the way
home . . . the first jump in the pool . . , the Exhibitions when you marched
around the Gym, twirled wands, ran relays, and rotated flashlights inside balloons
. . . and the distasteful Lower School Choir, with you in the red dress and high
starched collar . . . your part as a bright young maid in the chorus of 'cPinafore,'
. . . the fierce snowball fights between the Fifth and Sixth Grades out by the drift
. . . trips with Miss Jordan to the Education Building and to the Karmelkorn . . .
that picnic when Gordonis football fell in the crick . . . Miss Snively's promotion-
seating system . . . and the Lower School Commencement when you went up to
receive your diploma. . .
Remember your introduction to the military side of the school? . . . the Sixth
Form instructors shouting, "Squads Right, not Squads Left!" . . . the afternoons
you spent desperately wading through uniforms in the Exchange. . . "Cap', Town-
send passing between the ranks of "C" Company blowing nauseating puffs from his
stogie into the faces of you recruits . . . Colonel Donner, "the bald eaglen, keeping
you at attention in the hot sun while he lectured to some wayward Corporal. . .
L'Cap', Townsend's advice: "Now that you're a p.f.c. you've got to live up to itll,
. . . your Hrst Cuidon . . . shining your buckles for hours on end . . . shaking
for fear that the Reviewing Officer might ask you a question when he came around
. . . the cry of dismay that went up on Armistice Day when the Battalion learned
it was to march directly behind the cavalry units . . . how angry you were when
the crowd kept saying, "Here comes C.B.A.,' and "Back from the Civil War, eh!"
. . . the exhausting trip to Cooperstown and drill in the dust-bowl stadium . . .
and the Competitive Drill when you steamed and sweated all afternoon. . .
Remember your years in the Middle School? . . . the dictionaries that
Mr. Paul used to throw at you . . . the continuous wrestling match between
Artie and Marcus . . . Mr. Easton's flaming temper . , . that day you low-
ered Mr. Paul Oh-so-gently into a mud puddle . . . shagging flies in the Spring
. . . the opening baseball game when you all went down to see the Senators . . .
Mr. Moranis lectures on Arizona and the effectiveness of a three-inch hatpin . .
Mr. Crawford's desolate existence in the Middle School. . .
Remember the Upper School? . . . that first day rushing around trying to
find the classrooms before the third bell rang . . . the fierce intramural football
games. . .Coach Morris' advice to candidates: "Read the Bible and get enough
sleep." . . . the thrill of being on a Varsity team, even though you were on the bench
most of the time. . . Mr. Stetson: "Now . . . ah . . . someone . . . has . . .
ah . . . mis . . . appropriated . . . the . . . ah . . . chandelier . . . in . . . the
library", followed by "You . . . ah . . . know that . . . you . . . cannot . . .
ah. . . expect. . .towin. . . aboatrace . . . ah . . .ifoneof.. .thecrew
a hole in itl' ,... Mr. Webber's varied remarks to his classes, ranging from "Quietl
dogs," for the Third Form to HI-lush, Ladsf, for the Sixth . . . Mr. Midgley's
violent shaking of the notebooks of his Ancient History class . . . those informal
metallic clangs as the ............ hit the floor of the Varsity Locker Room in swift
succession . . . that burning cord in Mr. Lindsey's room and the knife in the door
with the ominous note: "Death to Joelv . . . the time Mr. Owen brought the
Dartmouth Outing Club guide posing as an illiterate half-breed '. . . the exterior
warm feeling and the interior sick feeling after the Initiations . . . strains of Tony
Sporborg's "Etude in C-Sharp Minor' flowing through the building on a rainy
afternoon . . . the spirited chalk Hghts . . . the massive figure of Mr. Webber
striding down the hall after Chapel before the Sixth Period Math tests . . . the
new Kindergarten teachers . . . and that succession of '4lasts" . . . the last foot-
ball game . . . the last Guidon . . . the last parade . . . the last test . . . the
last Commencement. . .
All of which should leave you with the feeling you've experienced if you have
been the last one out of the building on a Friday afternoon, and you have walked
down the halls, just thinking: or if at night you have ever sat outside on the steps
waiting for your Dad after an athletic trip, just thinking. . . The school contains
memories of from one to thirteen of the best years of your life. A class history can
only scratch the surface of this golden lodeg the rest is upto you.

X Humore que
ANDERSON-Andy .worked on a farm a few summers ago, and he has never lost interest
in the dairy industry. Perhaps thatls why hc was always so quick to volunteer
when someone was needed to take the milk up to the Kindergarten and First
Grade. He did so like the little fellows, you know.
BOWVEN-Coach is still trying to Hgure out what happened to "Bones', on the day of the
C.B.A. football game. Greased lightning isn't quite the word, but it will give
you the idea. If it wasn't for the fact that he has already enlisted in the Navy,
who could tell what the Army might have done with him?-The Army.
CHATTERLEY-It's been quite a while since we've seen Chatls little car rolling up and
down Academy Road at breakneck speed, but from all reports he is quite happy
to have traded it in for an airplane.
,CLEVELAND-It is rumored that Chick eats lunch at seven different times during the day.
It is either that or dreams of 38 Euclid Avenue that put him into such a peaceful
and cherubic sleep during those Fifth Period classes.
COBDEN-It took Dick just three minutes and twenty-seven seconds to find out what was
going on in Sam Bacouls class, but it took him only three seconds to evacuate that
sector post haste. Although the Army finally got him, the "Beanl' First volun-
teered for service as a periscope on one of our newer-type subs. However, the
Navy plans to use the steel ones for a few more years.
CRANE-Once Pete was convinced of something, he couldn't be shaken from it by a major
earthquake plus Mr. Midgleyls arguments thrown ing witness that unfortunate
aHair at the Mendelssohn Club Concert. Pete still insists that the l94-4 Hockey
team was the best in years.
DUFFY-When Mac wanted to know if Company B was "present or accounted forn, Duff
let him know in no uncertain terms. John wrote Dorothy Dix so many letters
filled with questions about his love life that she invited him down to New York
for a few weeks to talk things over. The upshot of the whole affair was that Miss
Dix committed hari-kari.
EIGHNIEY-No one ever did find out where Sid lived in Troy, but wherever it is, he must
have spent many long nights there trying to fathom the Academy system of note-
books, outlines, and experiments. He took it all stoically, however, and by the
end of the year he was telling us a few things about our school work and Emma
ELLEGATE-Have you read Emmettis new thriller "Revolutions and How to Run Themn?
It is reported that early sales are topping those of his previous successes 'LService
on Committees" and "The Intricacies of Finance and Tricky Maneuvers Therein".
A current rumor has it that Emmett is switching from McManus 8: Riley to Omar,
GOODMAN-A leading psycho-analyst has predicted a short and tragic life for Itch. It
seems that he will die at the age of twenty-three of acute laryngitis fafter estab-
lishing the phenomenal record of asking four million questions without making
a single statement of factj. We have arranged for a granite obelisk for his
gravestone on which will be cut three marks H? ? ?l', supreme amid the silence.
GRAY--Incomplete returns indicate that Dick had more dates during the school year than
I the rest of the class put together KD. Ryan exceptedl. He always had a re-
sponsive ear to the various woes the boys brought to him-a regular Mr. Anthony.
Several sponsors have approached him about a radio show of his own, but he
always blushed shyly and said, "Oh, I'm much too busy with my homework."
HAVEN-Is there a member of the Class of '44 who will ever forget the clarion call:
"My name is HAVEN, sir!" ? The Sixth Form lunch table buzzed every Monday
as the news of his latest escapade into the darkest reaches of the Ritz leaked out
to the waiting world. Be careful! Don't upset Bob's books, fellows, hels liable
to pick up a desk and throw it at you.
HAWN-jawn rates a big hand for his
ever, every once in a while he
announcements that he would
maintains that the Senior year
well-developed Chapel announcement style. How-
would become so entranced with the splendor of his
talk himself into an oral dead-end street. He still
was a snap.
lN'IcLEOD-Mac was always either doing little things for the Junior-League, such as throw-
ing together five-story houses, or Hitting back and forth for War Council Meet-
ings. Of course he was always careful that his knee didn't take off and roll down
the hall without him.
MOREHOUSE-Everyone thought Wade was a nice, quiet lad until malicious stories began
to dribble in from the outlying districts of Waterford. An investigation forced
the Morehouses to move to Albany. After that, Wade was identihed by that
devilish little red hat in the better spots in town. l'Old Automatic" was the only
student in the history of the school to pass Solid Geometry on the basis of one
NIORRIS-"Hey listen, you guys, I've got an idea!" Gordon was always hatching brain-
storms or campaigning for changes in the school. In his own little way "Gordy',
got to know quite a few of the younger set around town. He met them in the
funniest places, such as in the ferris wheel at the carnival, or at one of his ubarn
OLCOTT-Bob has been busy all year in organizing the Albany Chapter of the "League To
Defend England No Matter What Happens." In addition he has been waging
,pitched battles daily with Mr. Holmes on the interpretation of physics and home-
work included therein.
REES-Dave kept Mrs. Munson on the Sixth Form map with his regular attendance and
also represented the ultra-ultra in manners and living-room technique. Every once
in a while, however, he would come out with a statement that set the boys back
on their heels.
ROSE-Artie didn't creep out of Chapel for nothing when the F.B.I. agent visited school this
winter. He thought Coach was investigating whether that arm he had bandaged
to the hilt before every basketball game was in one or two pieces. -
RYAN-Such a nice, quiet, unassuming lad--this Ryan boy. Queried recently as to the
secret of his success with the opposite sex, Don promptly replied, "I have always
maintained that lots of sleep and lots of studying Csometimes in books, sometimes
notj work wonders for every enterprising Don Juanf' And then he added, "Always
wash your face with warm water before you go outg it produces a lovely blush
and is marvelous for your complexion? Say fella!
SMITH---The crowd at the Prize Speaking Contest was hushed, the next speaker was about
to be announced. But where was the next speaker? Just as the final words of
the introduction were completed, there was a slight disturbance, and down the
aisle strode Oney. Learning that he was due on the platform, he was assisted
to the stage and, to quote Socrates, "He done noblyf' Thus was completed
another tense drama, with the unknowing world as an audience.
SWIRE-Here, ladies and gentlemen, you may see for one dime, one tenth of a dollar,
the authentic, the original "Snookums" Swire, the only man with the bulbous
nose. Poor Umbriago was the most misinformed fellow in school. "They say
. . . some one told me . . . I heard . . . one of the fellows was saying . . .H
-he never got any further, Hawn always laughed him down.
TOWNSEND-Nobody has yet figured out what happened to Glen in the A.H.S. basketball
game when he put in three in a row from way out. Whatever it was, he wasn't
the same man afterwards. The town of Ravena has presented him with the
key to his own back door, you know, you know, you know.
TRUCHIO-The Times Union had more writeups during the football season on Truch's
educated toe than on the war situation. They gave the size of his foot, what
color shoes he was wearing, and the name of the girl he was taking out on Sat-
urday night. Mr. Midgley has finally convinced him not only that the Monroe
Doctrine was not passed by a vote of 51-48, but that it was not passed at all by
any body. Of course, it's all in the way you look at it.
VALLEY-It isn't widely known that Mort is a close friend of a native Cohoesite who stars as
Z1 monster in the horror thrillers. Incidentally, everyone at school thinks that
Mortls classic beauty and deep bass voice will make him a sure hit in the cinema.
After all, some one has to take Crosby's place.
WOOSTER-Roy is the unchallenged master of the triple deal. He has plunged in and
out of more tight spots in his time than that amazing little imp, Bolivar Shagnasty.
Royls stirring pep talks were instrumental in holding up thc high standards of the
color guard. How far up no one will say, but up they were.
Editorls Note: As has previously been announced, the names of the members of the board
of three which is responsible for the above Humoresque must for reasons of security, remain
anonymous. Incidentally-and let me emphasize this point-the rumor that our Miami cor-
respondent had a major hand in the effort is wholly without foundation.

From its inception in l87O, the Albany Academy Cadet Battalion has been
one of the outstanding and distinctive features of the school. This year, as soon
as school began, the Battalion was formed, and preparations were begun to make
the second full-time war schedule a success.
Under the constant supervision of Lt. Col. John Conners, Jr. N.Y.G., the
recruits began their training with the seniors, who rotated through the various
grades, instructing. Because of the unusual number of first-year drillers, all cadets
received a full course of close-order drill.
At last, after a full month of drill, the commissions were announced, these
were awarded on the basis of the three military examinations taken last year and
the Colonelis observations of the seniors during the preliminary period. John Hawn
was named Major and became the seventy-third Battalion commander. Immedi-
ately the five captains and the Major began the selection of the lower-ranking non-
commissioned oihcers. A list was prepared and, after being approved by Colonel
Conners, was read off in Chapel. The Battalion was now formed for the first time,
and the appointed oflicers began the task of readying the Battalion for its first
public appearance on Armistice Day.
44 32 D
' The parade went off creditably, and almost immediately the Battalion was called
upon to appear at the football games with the High School and C.B.A., held in
With the long-sought-for precision beginning to appear, the unit went indoors
and began the winter drill program. Each cadet was given the preliminary exer-
cises of rifle marksmanship, and, after a brief review of the positions, the older
cadets began firing on the range. The recruits were worked extensievly on triangu-
lation, the proper use of afsling, and sighting and breathing exercises, soon they
were far enough advanced to take their turn on the range. The daily schedule
was now put into operation, and it allowed for each cadet to Fire on the range
once every two weeks. When not on the range, the separate companies practiced
extended-order drill under their commanding ofhcers.
One of the changes from last year was the addition of a demerit system and
a military court. Demerits could be given by commissioned officers and recom-
mended by non-commissioned oflicersg each cadet receiving a demerit was required
to appear on Friday afternoon and walk it off in the quadrangle.
When the Christmas vacation was ended, the drill routine went into another
phase. Throughout January the Battalion formed each day either in the Buttery
or in Chapel, and Colonel Conners lectured on military map-reading. After the
completion of this course one week was devoted to lectures on first aid, adminis-
tered by the medical-officer of the Tenth Regiment of the New York Guard.
In February the individual companies commenced preparations for the annual
Guidon, which remains the high point of the drill program. With constant use of
the Troop B Armory, each company sought to attain its peak for the drill on March
31. The Battalion could use the Tenth Infantry Armory but five times before
the drill, hence the drill periods in the last two weeks of March were lengthened
to two and one-half hours on the days when the Armory was to be ours. Because
of the nature of the Battalion drill, most of the time was spent in polishing it up and
apreparing for the formations which were to be used in the Guidon,
At last, after long preparation, the eventful day arrived, and from all sources
-from the reviewing officers, headed by Brig. Gen. Ames T. Brown on down-the
drill was a decided success. The traditional guidons were won by Company B,
led by Captain Duffy, the salient feature of the Guidon was the excellence of all
The Guidon over, the Battalion once again settled into its more ordinary routine.
Additional practice on extended order and riflery was given, and in the Memorial
Day parade the Battalion, more experienced and precise, made a fine showing.
As the Battalion for the last time "Passed in Review" at the Competitive Drill
and left the Held, looking back on the year's accomplishments, one can see how
profitable the organization is for all concerned. It increases the qualities of leader-
ship of everyone from the commander down to the last cadet in the rear rank of
Company C, and as such, it is truly the outstanding feature of the Academy curri-
culum. P. H.

The 1943 football season marked the second year in the return of Academy
teams to city competition. The team at the beginning of the year lost the services
of Captain-elect Jack Van Hoogenstyn, and Jim Scholtz was elected by the squad
to take his place.
The Red and Black began the season with somewhat doubtful prospects, but,
as the necessary teamwork began to develop, it gained confidence in its ability. In
swift succession Schuyler, Bethlehem Central, Mont Pleasant, Nott Terrace, and
Vincentian were toppled. As the season progressed, the squad exhibited a strong
offensive, with Hawn's passes to Rose and Wooster and the running of Ryan and
On November 13 the Red and Black met the High School in the second
installment of their renewed rivalry, with both teams undefeated. A combination
of over-confidence and sluggishness together with a weak pass defense, Hrst apparent
in the Vincentian game, spelt our defeat.
A week later the squad opposed Christian Brothers Academy. The two teams
were tied at the half, but C. B. A, broke away to win with a brilliant display of
The season, which gave promise, at the outset, of continuing the 1942 banner
year with another undefeated record, was marked by a serious letdown in the
Hnal stages. Was the team over-confident? Was it over-trained? No one person

The Ba kethall ea on
When the 1944 season closed, the basketball team found itself with the in-
auspicious record of nine wins and eight losses.
Using the fast break and a zone defense throughout the year, the club was
definitely of the hot and cold variety. When the first practice was called by Coach
Morris late in November, a veteran group of players reported, but unfortunately
The first three games were with schools having no football teams, principally
through lack of practice the team won but one of these three.
In a stretch drive, the high points of the season were reached in two games
-the second meetings with Albany High and Vincentian. In the VI game, the
team on its opponentls court attained the playing heights of the season in chalking
up a 51-37 win. In the High School game, playing against a team that had
swamped it in the early part of the year, the club came through with a 31-30 win
in an overtime period. Next year Bob Perkins will captain a team on which he
will be the only letterman. The folowing is a record of the individual scoring:

T The Hockey Sea on
There is always the aspect of uncertainty about a hockey schedule, a team may
play all its games, it may play one, or, as in the case nine times out of ten, it may
come somewhere between the two extremes.
Such was the experience of this year's hockey team. The team was fortunate
in having an outstanding captain, Pete Crane, and a very able coach, Charlie
Townsend-both incurable optimists.
With little practice working as a unit, the team began its season by clrubbing a
Loudonville team, studded with prep-school stars, to the tune of 3-0.
The remainder of the season saw the team defeat Cohoes twice, Christian
Brothers Academy twice, and Glens Falls and Lenox, once each-never severely
pressed. The only two defeats were at the hands of the West Point Plebes and
the Northwood team. The work of the whole Academy team-the forward line
for its vigorous attack, the defense for its stout protection, and the goalie, Headley,
for his excellent work-was extremely creditable.
With the loss of only two regulars, next year's aggregation should be even
stronger than this year's team. Goalie Tyler Headley will captain the squad, while
Bob Clark will take over Dave McLeod's managerial duties.
The scoring for the season is as follows:
Crane ..... 24 Duffy .............. 2
Scholtz 9 MacDonald 2
Elliot ............ 7 McChesney .... 1

standing success. In the past, track
teams with a better than .500 average
were the exception, but, at this writing,
the 1944 track team, capitalizing on
new interest and a squad strong num-
erically as well as individually, was
undefeated. B O H S, Vincentian,
Schuyler, and Gloversville had been de-
feated by substantial margins.
Jim Scholtz upped the shot put rec-
ord three feet and the discus record

lowerd the mile record by Hve seconds.
Other consistent winners were Captain
Roy Wooster in the 220 low hurdles
and in the high jump, Ed Lucke in the
half mile, Dick Anderson in the quar-
ter, and Pat Truchio in the 220 and in
the broad jump.
One should not forget, however, the
good work of the other members of
the team who took in seconds, thirds,
and fourths to provide the margin of
victory. The work of these boys was

team was dark. Only a few stalwarts
had survived the lapse of competition
last year, the coach had left school,
and the courts had fallen into disrepair.
With the able assistance and instruc-
tion of Mr. Totten, the courts were
renewed and new material 'was devel-
oped. The team played Milne four
times, Troy High twice, and Mont
Pleasant once, and, although the results
of the matches were not spectacular,
the foundation for a strong team next
year was laid.

The Ba eball ea on
With an abundance of material on hand, the baseball team, after two weeks
of outdoor practice, began the 1944 season by losing to Vincentian in a hard-
fought extra-inning game. This contest showed that the loss of last year's brilliant
mound staff was a hard one. In the next game Schuyler's efhcient infield and
power at the plate proved enough to beat the Cadets.
On the next Friday, in meeting C. B. A.'s strong offensive, the Red and Black
reached its nadir. Fourteen Academy errors and fifteen C. B. A. hits resulted
in a 16-2 loss. The only glimmer of hope amid the confusion was the inspired
pitching of Pop Hawn.
After a week of sustained practice the Cadets met and defeated the High
School for their first win, showing their first sign of strength.
In the second half of the season Academy dropped another to Vincentian 6-1.
Both teams were much improved but Vlis tighter play won out. From the see-
ond Schuyler game the Cadets emerged with a 5-4 win. Our revamped and re-
juvenated infield, playing its best game, the pitching of Pop Hawn, and the clutch
hitting of the team, in general, and Art Rose, in particular, provided the margin
The annual West Point trip witnessed the Army Plebes romping over the
Cadets 22-11 in a free hitting, free fielding game.
At this writing, with a record of two victories and five defeats, the whole
squad is, at last, hitting its stride in a surge of offensive and defensive strength.
Its only complaint is that the season is too short, no one wants to alibi the team's
record, but with a longer schedule the record might have been a different story.

Eighty-seven years ago the Beck Literary Society was formed by a few students
of the Albany Academy for the purpose of improving elocution, composition, and
debate. Since its establishment, many problems have presented themselves, but
none could have been so vitally important as the one which the Beck members
faced this year. During the past two years, there has been a decided change in
the attitude of the members toward the Society in general.
The problem, therefore, that arose this year was whether Beck should con-
tinue to function despite these rising obstacles. This question was discussed at a
regular meeting by six of the Sixth Form members, and the Society resolved to
take a new hold and press on. Moreover, suggestions were made to breathe new
spirit into our activities. The society met Gates in various games and during the
Spring Term continued this course of action, holding track meets, baseball games,
and the like.
Under the leadership of Bob Olcott, President, Don Ryan, Vice-President,
Bob Bowen, Secretary, and Jim Scholtz, Treasurer, th.e Society profited during the
Fall Term. "Pop" Hawn led us through the Banquet Term with his supporting
oH:icers, Emmett Ellegate, Dave Rees, and Dick Bacon. Spring Term arrived and,
along with it, the revived spirit of the Society. To end the year with a bang,
John Duffy was installed as President, Chick Cleveland, Vice-President, Gordon
Morris, Secretary, and John Kyfiin, Treasurer.
So Beck resumes its activities, with new hope of attaining a higher goal in
the future and with new life surging in its veins. R. M. B.

With the annual spring picnic and Commencement, the sixty-first year of
the Gates Literary Society-a year which proved to be a most successful one for
Gates-drew to a close. It was apparent from the start that, instead of an expected
rdrop in interest, the literary work and spirit improved immensely.
X At the beginning of the Fall Term the societies were handicapped by football
practice, but, in spite of this, President Anderson conducted some most enjoyable
meetings. Later, plans were drawn up for the Beck-Gates dance, which was one
of the gala affairs of the year. Close on the heels of the dance came the election

The Student Council
The main function of the Student Council is to act as a connecting link be-
tween the students and the Faculty, or governing body. It represents the inter-
ests of the students and presents their ideas and questions to the Headmaster.
The main objective of the Council has always been to encourage an enthusiastic
school spirit. -
Some of the typical activities of the Council this year were as follows: it had
charge of the bonfire and rally before the High School football game, it was the
enthusiastic force in the innovation of the new seating arrangement in Chapelg it
promoted the purchase of War Stamps and Bonds and organized drives for the
War Chest and Red Cross, it was inHuential in bringing about many improve-
ments in the appearance of the school. At the beginning of the school year each
of the upper four forms elected its representatives to the Council. They were as
follows: Third Form, Darby Houston, Fourth Form, Louis Woodward, Fifth
Form, james Scholtz, and Sixth Form, John Hawn, David McLeod, Robert Olcott,
David Rees, and William Swire. The officers for 1943-44 were as follows: Presi-
dent, Robert Olcottg Vice-President, William Swire: Secretary, David Rees,
Treasurer, David McLeod.
Throughout the year, on the last three Mondays of each month, the Council
met regularly with the Headmaster, Mr. Meislahn.

The Glee Club began the year with several disadvantages. Many good voices
from last year's successful organization were lost to the club through graduation.
In addition, the membership contained a smaller number of Sixth Formers, Qwho
must forrn the core of any school activity,j than in previous years, and, finally,
a new schedule permitted the Glee Club to practice only once a week.
The club, this year under the able direction of Mr. Colton and Miss Hen-
shaw, gave its first concert at the Lower School Gym Exhibition. Following a
general trend away from the classical, the group prepared a number of semi-
classical and popular selections, which were well-received by a large audience.
The officers this year were as follows: Emmet Ellegate, President, Robert

The Dramatic Club
The joint play, presented annually by the combined Dramatics Clubs of the

The Athletic Assooiotioo
The factor that determines the awarding of letters is not exclusively how many
points a boy has scored, but is more his development of the team spirit and his
usefulness to the morale of the team. The Athletic Association, by including in
it the head coach, the captains of the teams, and the athletes themselves, awards
letters on such a theory.
A new and generally applauded idea was presented by "Pop', Hawn, who
suggested that a jacket be awarded to that player on each team who, in the opinion
of his captain and coach, has made the most marked improvement. The recipients
were Gordon Morris, for basketball, and John Moessinger, for hockey. R. O., II
The Forum, this year under the direction of Bob Haven, Chairman, Dave

cian, John Jacob Niles, who presented a program of folk songs of Kentucky, sung
and played on the dulcimer. We were also fortunate in obtaining Sydney Mon-
tague to return and tell an interested audience about northern Canada and Alaska.
The only thing that was definitely missing from the program this year was
the annual visit of the Hampton singers. For many years we have been honored
by their appearance, but this year, because of travel difhculties, they were forced
to cancel their tour. D. B. MCL.

The highlight of the Fish and Pumpkin year was the Alumni Issue sponsored
by Mr. Colton and published in early- March.. In it the addresses of many recent
graduates were printed, and 1800 copies were made up and sent to alumni all
over the world.
During the regular year, an issue came out each month, a smaller number
than usual. Operating under a debt incurred by previous boards, this year's or-
ganization was forced to reduce the sheet to a two-page aifair. However, with
the generous aid of the Fathers' and Mothers, Associations, the board succeeded
in substantially clearing away the debt.
For the most part, co-operation from the students in writing articles was
excellent and showed that the boys really did have an interest in school. With
cooperation like that next year, the "F Sz. P" should have a banner year.

The first job of the CUE board this year was to extricate itself from the
morass of conflicting figures left behind by last year's organization. This done,
work on the 1944 CUE began in earnest. First among the achievements of the
Board must be numbered the amazingly successful advertising campaign, which
staggered even the faculty advisers. Some features in last year's publication whose
cost far outweighed their effect have been dropped, and, in the belief that it is
better to move forward than to stand still, a new literary section has been included.
Despite myriad difficulties in photography, engraving, and printing, the Board
feels that the CUE has advanced still further towards that ever-elusive goal-
perfection. It is hoped that next year, with a new and more sensible re-organiza-
ion of the Staff of the CUE, an even greater success will be achieved.

The "Governor" Passes By
Gcznrevoort Prize Theme
by ROBERT OLGOTT, II
Nothing has a more invigorating effect on the mind than a stiff wind, uproot-
ing prejudice and conservatism, it makes one's thoughts clear and productive.
I had just stepped out of such a wind into the confined atmosphere of a bar-
ber shop opposite the Capitol. The barber shop was a typical one-the smoke of
five-cent cigars rising up from behind the afternoon newspapers, the low, confi-
dential conversation between barber and customer, the reek of liberally applied
hair tonic-these things I noticed as I sought a seat in the corner. My mind,
previously occupied in concentrating on the ferocity of the wind and now thrust into
a quiet that lent itself to thought, was racing, much as a skidding car, striking a
bare spot in the road, surges ahead. I was laboring with the strange and recurrent
thought that something unusual was about to happen.
A man walked slowly in front of the window and stood for some time gazing
across the street at the Capitol its gloomy gray structure and dead grass forming
a depressing picture. Inside, activity ceased. The steady snip, snip of the scissors
abruptly stopped, the papers were discarded, and conversation was broken off,
as everyone watched the Hgure outside.
The man was not hard to recognize, the brown derby with a fringe of white
hair beneath, the ruddy complexion, the formal cutaway coat, the spats-all served
to identify the Hgure that had, twenty years ago, occupied the Governor's Mansion.
HAI" Smith was back in Albanyfh
The head barber, who had cut Mr. Smith,s hair when he was governor, tapped
on the window, but he didn't seem to hear. This action, together with the quiet
of the barber shop, enhanced the superior position of those inside. Removed to a
higher plane and isolated from the world, it was as if we were able, unobserved,
to watch the workings of life below.
WVith a hesitation and an uncertainty in his gait, the "Governor', crossed the
street and proceeded up Washington Avenue. He seemed quite fragile and help-
Nleg as he zig-zagged from one side of the walk tothe other, like a sailboat tacking
against the wind. And as he slowly made his way up the avenue, the people of
Albany, one and all, stopped and shook the great man's hand. They had never
known him to speak to, they merely had lived in the same city as he and had
seen him many times from a distance. For twenty years, all they had had with
which to remember their governor was the newspaperls annual picture of him at
Easter on the steps of Saint Patriek's in New York, a picture at which their un-
thinking teen-age children had laughed and said:
"Why there's 'All Smith, the man who failed against Hoover. Look at his red
nose, no wonder he was a 'Wet'.,'
Disearding partisan sympathies, the older people, friend and foe alike, had
nothing in their hearts but warm affection for their "Governor Smithn. As his
figure disappeared from sight, the conversation resumed, the papers were recovered,
and I sat there thinking. . .
Though a man may be wrong in his policies and principles, though a man
may advocate the wrong measures and support the wrong causes, he, in the final
analysis, is remembered, not for what he said, or did, or signed on this or that
occasion, but for his character-his outlook on life, his generosity, and his never-

" ot His Own Tongue"
Beck Prize Theme V
by JOHN POYVELL HAXNN
When Joseph Conrad landed in New York, the reporters crowded around to
ask his opinion about the world of books. But he put them off. They could not
make him talk. y
"I am not a literary manf' he said. Not a literary man! The creator of
"Lord Jim", of "The Nigger of the Narcissusf, So incongruous was this statement
that it was heralded throughout the land, yet, to my mind, it was an exact evalua-
tion of Joseph Conrad by Joseph Conrad. The man who learned English at twenty
and wrote it so well that he stood almost alone among its masters was not essen-
tially a literary man. Upon such a note of incongruity, this essay will' begin be-
cause there is no stranger life-story than that of the man who, as a native of an
inland country, spent all his youth at sea, and who, although utterly ignorant of
English at the age of twenty, became not only a great novelist in that tongue, but
also a supreme English stylist.
Joseph Conrad was born December 3, 1857 of Polish parents near Kiev, in
what was then Russian Poland. Here is begun the fantastic evolution of a youth
of noble birth, high spirited and romantic, into a competent master mariner in the
British merchant marine. It was not strange that young Joseph was an incurable
romanticist and adventurer, for his father belonged to the landed gentry and was
an intense patriot. Because of his revolutionary activities, he was arrested and
exiled to Vologda in northeast Russia. Willingly his wife, also an intense patriot,
followed him into exile with her small son. The privations that Conrad,s family
met killed his mother in four years and were the cause of his fath.er's death four
With such a family background, is it strange that Joseph Conradis life took
the strange course that it did? With no family to care for him, the boy, reared
by his practical-minded uncle, grew up with a dual soul. On one hand he was a
devout Roman Catholic, a small patriot who could read the forbidden Polish tongue
before he was five, a lover of fairy tales. On the other hand he was an avid
devourer of adventure stories. Anything by Cooper or Marryat would be read
and reread by this youth who in a few years was to live the role that h.e had
been creating for himself.
At last at the age of sixteen he confided the ambition of becoming a sailor to
his uncle. Reluctantly, after all opposition was swept away by the strength of Con-
rad's desire, permission was given for him to ship on a French vessel from Mar-
seilles. If it were necessary for one to precisely locate the beginning of the devel-
opment of Conrad into the novelist, it would be here. For this was the start of
the sea-going adventures of Conrad which were such an integral part of his fiction.
It is easy to surmise that if Conrad had not had his adventurous background, there
would have been little if any of the prose which so enriches our language.
As Conrad wrote to John Galsworthy, 'lMarseilles was the place where the
puppy opened his eyesf, How true this was may easily be seen from the happenings
of his first years at sea. The first enterprise which Conrad pursued with much
romantic adventure, had to do with the Carlists' ill-fated efforts to place the claim-
ant and pretender, Don Carlos, on the throne of Spain. After running contraband
44 50 D
with three others for several months, this adventure ended ingloriously when they
were forced to wreck their boat on the rocks to escape a. pursuing coast guard.
It was at the age of twenty-one that Conradis life began to shape itself into
some sort of reasonable pattern. After several months of inactivity at Marseilles, in
which time he found time to Hght a duel and have a brief love affair, Conrad,
looking for new adventures, went to England resolved to be "a seaman worthy of
the service." After learning the language well enough to pass the examinations
for merchant officers, Conrad realized his life-long ambition, of sailing the seas
for the British Empire as ofhcer and commander of small wooden boats.
During this period, Conrad lived a rugged adventurous life on the square rig-
gers that beat over the face of the earth with never a thought of writing a word.
It was during this period that Conrad absorbed the impressions that led to the
'cinexplicable impulse" that gave birth to the opening chapters of his first novel,
"Almayer's Folly." After an enforced period of idleness, suddenly given an oppor-
tunity which allowed him to fulfill a boyhood boast, he accepted the command of
a river boat on the Congo. The experiences in the African jungle proved epochal,
for the lingering Congo fever which he brought back to Europe, forced him finally
to give up the active life of the sea and to follow completely the impulse that
had led him to begin "Almayer's Follyf,
Of Conrad's family and home-life little is known, except that in june 1898
he married an Englishwoman, Jessie George, against her family's opposition. Soon
he had two sons to support, Brys and john Alexander. Ill and discouraged, he
forced himself to apply for reinstatement to the service, in order to support his
small family. Fortunately for literature he was refused, friends finally secured a
small Civil Service pension for h.im, which he gave up when his writing began
to bring him in a living. He was no business man, and it was not until his last
years in his beloved Kent that he was entirely free from monetary worry.
However, one thing that he was never poor in was friends. Henry James
delighted in his company, Stephen Craneis last moments were lightened by the
friendship of the older man. Nervous, abrupt, with unreasoning likes and dis-
likes, tortured by the aftermath of the fever and in later years by gout, Conrad
nevertheless was beloved by the few who penetrated the mask of gloom and despair.
Tdln writing an essay of this kind on Conrad it is necessary to choose which
should be featured, his life or his works. After considerable debate I decided,
because his life is such an integral part of his fiction, that both should be treated as
comprehensively as possible. It may be said that Conrad first lived a life, then,
after he had something to say, he wrote. Conrad's life as a seaman and his
career as a writer overlapped. One often wonders why it is that Conrad, knowing
thoroughly three languages: Polish, his mother tongue, French, which he con-
tinued to read, speak, and write in as long as he lived, and English, which he
began to learn at the age of twenty, should choose English as the language in
which he should write. This is one of the mysteries about Conrad that has never
been satisfactorily answered. My own guess is that he was only caught up in his
admiration for the language. The authors he most admired were Shakespeare,
Dickens, Byron, and the Hmanliness, the clearness of Dr. johnson's The Lives of the
Poetf' commanded his admiration. With his open admiration for these men, is it
not right to guess that he wished to write in their language also?
One of the outstanding facts of Conrad is the universal scope of his work.
Consider this: his writings penetrate the heart of London fthe "Secret Agentnjg
the vastness of Russia f4'Under Western Eyesnjg the depths of Africa f"Heart of
Darknessuj 5 the mysterious China Sea QL'Typhoon"j g the Malay Archipelago
f"Almayer,s Follynjg South America Q"Nostromo,'j. And yet with all this vast
range, the fiction of Conrad is essentially the representation of the life he had lived.
Many of his stories grew entirely out of his own experiences, and even those that had
their basis in his own imagination are colored by his experience.
And yet when all is said and done, the one thing that makes Conrad the master
that he is, is his characterization of individuals. His characters are real yet ideal.
They are able to be visualized with amazing accuracy, and yet one hardly expects
to meet any of them. Almayer and James Wfait were both intimately studied by
Conrad, however, when we read of them they suddenly appear as men of unusual
proportions. It has been said of Conrad, and with some truth, that he liked to
write of men who go to sea or live on lonely islands untrammeled by the pressure
of wordly events because such characters allowed freer play to his imagination.
Conradls treatment of material is often called romantic realism. The realism
derives from knowledge, the romanticism from feeling. In realistic description Con-
rad is the supreme artist. He conjures up before us with precise details the smoky,
huddled forecastle of the Narcissus, the brilliant fertility of tropical Sambir. This
Conrad does with expertness because he knows of what he talks. He sailed in the
Narcissus, he saw Almayer in his island home. Still he had no intention of merely
depicting ships and the exciting incidents of life at sea. His ambition was to probe
'fthe sea of the human thought." Conrad is no more a writer of "sea-stories" than
"Moby Dick" is a sea-story. The sea happens to be his raw material just as New
England was for Hawthorne. p
After reading several of his stories, one thing becomes clear. In every story the
principal point is the study of a particular man of event. In f'Almayer's Folly,"
Con-rad lays bare the soul and mind of a man who governed his conduct by "con-
siderations removed from the obvious, by incredible assumptions, which rendered
his logic impenetrable to any reasonable person." And yet there is about Almayer a
deep universality that arouses pity, despite his belief that nothing was ever quite
worthy of him. So it is with James Wait, a lonely Negro in a British forecastle.
Yet James Wait, afraid of death and making her his accomplice, was indisputably
the master of the crew. However, in "The Nigger of the Narcissusu, one of Con'-
rad's most popular stories, James Wait is nothing, he is merely the center of the
ship's collective psychology. And so it goes in his stories, throughout them runs
that plastic quality which Conrad felt and wrote of in his famous preface to "The
Nigger of the Narcissus." These few pages show more of what he was trying to do
than all the books published since. His task which he was trying to achieve was
"by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel-it is,
before all, to make you see,"
All of the emphasis on Conrad's works is invariably given to his sea novels.
Sea writer or not, in l907 he suddenly appeared as a writer of a detective murder
thriller, "The Secret Agent." In its way the story of Adolf Verla, th.e spy of a foreign
power, who kept a disreputable little shop in a shabby London street with his wife,
Winnie, and her half-wit brother, Stevie, is a masterpiece, The figures stand out
with a clearness that is little short of miraculous. This book will prove conclusively
to any doubters the sheer genius of Conrad, it extends even further the great
scope of this novelist.

As the age that had been enthralled by c'Youth" and "The Nigger of the
Narcissus" grew up, the old author became more and more revered. This man
who had brought into the English language a, fresh vigor which it had never before
felt, spent his last years in sleepy, prosperous Kent. He tasted his rewards, though
it is doubtful whether he cared, by having his name spoken with those of Hardy
and Meredith. Joseph Conrad, a naturalized citizen, left to the language such a
rich heritage through the fact that his was a great mind expressing itself in an
Early in the morning of August 3, 1924, while resting in a chair, Joseph Conrad
died quietly. It is almost poetic justice that this man who had felt so much strife
and hardship should leave this world quietly and easily. H. L. Mencken, when
Conrad died, summed the matter up for all time. "There was," he said, 'csomething
almost suggesting the vastness of a natural phenomenon. He transcended all the
rules. There have been, perhaps, greater novelists, but I believe that he was incom-
paraby the greatest artist who ever wrote a novelf'

How fast our last day at the Academy has come! For thirteen years our
class has seen its conception of Commencement grow from a glimmer of light
amid the darkness of imperative study to a fiery comet that was upon us before
we knew it. Once it was with childlike admiration that we looked upon graduation,
only lately have we come to regard it with a feeling, half of exhilaration at, having
completed our high school education, half of fear of the unknown beyond.
In our youthful hurry we may have forgotten our parents, our teachers, and
our friends. Therefore, as we look back over our lives thus far, let us attempt to
pay our debt to those who have had such a large hand in our past and whose
ideas and ideals will influence our future.
, We express to the Trustees our appreciation of their never-failing concern for
the welfare of the school. To the Faculty, whose vigorous, contagious standards
of study have made us all we are and all we ever hope to be, we extend our heart-
felt, inadequate thanks. To our parents, what can we say, what can we do to
show our gratitude for their sacrifice that we might enjoy a fuller education? And
those in the lower classes, particularly those in next year's Sixth Form, who have
so ably assisted us in fulfilling our duties as Seniors, we leave in the hope that
they may have profited from our leadership as well as from our mistakes. But
words, like a handshake, can hardly express the bond that exists between us and
those whom we must leave behind, the real tie is in what each party treasures at
the bottom of his heart.
Classmates, we have come this far successfully. But Commencement is just
what it means-a beginning. Our class, as other classes in other years have done,
faces an unknown future. Who can foresee what gaps twenty years will leave in
our ranks, which of us will rise, which of us will fall? Other classes entered a
constant world of known values, this year's class is stepping out into an uncertain
world of stumbling, struggling, groping people. Once more the cry might well be:
"God, give us men! A time like this demands strong minds, great hearts, true
faith, and ready hands. . ."
May the doctrines of fair play and hard work, implanted in us during our
years at the Academy, be our guides for the future. A world of grasping selfish-
ness and brooding disillusionment will recognize no others. With these two ideals
before us and with a supreme confidence in our Hunmanifest destiny", we cannot
fail to do justice to our families and to our school.
