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' 44455 MR. LAWRENCE H. PIKE 4455? 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 . . .

MEISLAHN, Headmaster The Faculty 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 and speaking. Through Mr. Webber we gained an insight to the intricacies of mathematics and a valuable schooling in accuracy plus great helpfulness to those anticipating military service. 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 popular. In the Held of science, Mr. Holmes did an admirable job in awakening the scientific spirit among us. 44 8 D? Rear-Miss Henshaw, Mr. Holmes, Mr. Totten, Mr. Easton, Mr. Webber, Mr. Sabisch, Mr. Fullaytor, Mr. Colton. Front4Mr. Lindsey, Mr. Sharp, Miss Kermeth, Mr. Meislahn, Mr. Pike, Mr. Morris, Mr. Midgley. 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. G. K. R. 44 9 57 441075 RICHARD ARTHUR ANDERSON "AndyJ' "A1'nei-soni' Age.'

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. . . 441975 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 ...is...ah...downinthe...bottom...oftheboat...drilling... 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. R. O. II 44 20 D 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 Willard. 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, the tentmaker. 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. 442155 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 statement. 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 dancesfl 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. 44 22 77 Class Election DONE MOST FOR ACADEMY . . .

'Phe Battalion 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 Bleecker Stadium. 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 company drills. 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.

Football Review 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 King outstanding. 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 running. 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 can say. Returning next year are four lettermen, including Captains ,lim Scholtz and Barr Morris, and a number of other veterans whose spirited work on the second string provided invaluable practice for the varsity.

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.

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: Goals Goals Crane ..... 24 Duffy .............. 2 Scholtz 9 MacDonald 2 Elliot ............ 7 McChesney .... 1 Moessinger ....., 5 Sporborg ...., 1 44 38 D K In April the outlook for the tennis M -.--rv-'ff-s s.. - V. :nw fa- . . :iQEtg,:mc13f3i32tf ' ' "rm .P t tj 'rf .--V WO .1'Vj'f,. 2 ,, 3 It 1 21?-'t'2:,'f2.,V'.::-'-' ' f ai? 2 12:2,q:'..1."2-xrjfda -as itfV'EQi5s2:ag2i-"'aQ1v-.-Q ,.g,5w,, .

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 tffirty feet, while Harry Southworth 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 instrumental in building morale and team spirit, for they all had the will to win. R. A. A. 44 39 57 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. D. B.

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 of victory. 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. . R. O., II C4 40 P7 ,, .

Beck 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. C4 42 D il 4. Rear-Boynton, Valley, Eighmey, Headley.

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 and initiation of the Fourth Form. For one day the Academy was greeted by a strange-looking crew of blushing bathing ,N beauties and brutes dressed in barrels, fur coats, and long underwear. But as always, it was the initiates who had the most fun. The training given by the society is seldom noticed in the meetings, as infor- mality is the keynote, however, speaking before an audience does develop poise and self-confidence, and the good fellowship fostered by the society is equally important. VVhen the year ended, Gates had increased its membership and standing by hard work, giving promise of sixty-one more years of outstanding achievements. E. W.

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. D. C. R. 44 44 7?

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 Haven, Vice-President, Remsen Chatterley, Secretary, and Wade Morehouse, Treasurer.

The Dramatic Club The joint play, presented annually by the combined Dramatics Clubs of the Albany Academy and the Albany Academy for Girls, has through the years be- come an event eagerly awaited, strongly attended, and greatly acclaimed by the student bodies of both schools. This year proved to be no exception as Glenn Hughes, mystery-comedy, "Midnight',, was presented to a full house at the begin- ning of Christmas Vacation. Under the able direction of Miss Robinson and Mr. Pike, the cast, which included Helen Mullennaux, Helen Muhlfelder, Mary Kingdon, Joann Besch, lVIarcia Hedberg, Phillis Buck, John fSarnboj Duffy, Dick Gray, Dick Anderson, Rernsen Chatterley, George Ross, Dick Bacon, and Bob Jamison turned in particu- larly Fine performances. The stage settings, constructed with unusual ability this year with Mr. Holmes' supervision, contributed much to the effectiveness of the play. The Club was able to give the Red Cross 3112.25 after all expenses had been paid. With Bill Swire as President, Dave McLeod as Secretary, and Dick Anderson as Treasurer, the Club concluded one oi its best years. R. A. A. 44 46 PP Rear-Headley, Elliot, Scholtz, Perkins, Saunders.

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 The Forum, this year under the direction of Bob Haven, Chairman, Dave McLeod, Secretary, Bill Swire, Treasurer, and Lawrence H. Pike, faculty adviser, gathered an unusually entertaining array of guests. The season open-ed with the return appearance of Claude Frank, the pianist. The next guest was also a musi- 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 Publication 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. C. G. C. 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. R. o., II 44 48 D 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- failing geniality. K 49 7? " 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 years later. 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 44517? 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. K 52 PP X 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 alien tongue. 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' Track and Field Record R Eygnt Ti7H6 HOld67' 100 yd. Dash 0210.0 A.

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.
