To those Academy men of World War II who
have given their lives to let us live in a free
world, we humbly dedicate this issue of the Cue,
realizing how inadequate is our gesture.

S we of the class of 1945 bid goodbye to a major part of our childhood and
adolescent environment, we find a war-weary and confused world. The mis-
takes of the past are all too evident to us, who are determined that they shall not
happen again. We are a class stepping out into the world on the eve of victory in
war, the victory of the peace is ours to win.
In endeavoring to preserve the highlights of our years at the Academy, we are
of necessity limited to the medium of printers' ink and paper, but it is our sincere
hope that these will serve as stimulants for recollections as vivid as only the recesses
of memory can conjure.
Rear-Mr. Townsend, Mr. Colton, Mr. Sabisch, Mr. Easton, Mr. Fullaytor, Mr. Warner, Mr
Rodney, Mr. Totten.
Front-Mr. Pike, Mr. Sharp, Mr. Midgley, Mr. Holmes, Mr. Meislahn, Miss Kermeth, Mr
Lindsey, Mr. Morris, Mr. Webber.
T is platitudinous to say that a grcat deal of permanent influence is exerted by
the faculty upon those students with whom they come in contact. Qftentimes,
however, we fail to appreciate this fact, if we recognize it'. Every experience has
its effects upon our personalities, and we have had many rich and varied experi-
ences' with faculty acquaintances. During our years at the Academy we have
supposedly learned something, and it is safe to say that no one is -to blame but the
faculty. Perhaps someday we shall be grateful for their services.
Considering the peculiar characteristics of the graduating class, the faculty
deserves special commendation for withstanding the pressure of its exuberant spirits.
fln all other classes, of course, there was little agitationj The daily tussles with
weighty tomes were not half so severe, or so much fun, as those with teachers.
Do you remember, you of the Upper School, those all too infrequent days in
Mr. Pike's English class when we were lulled from the tedious intellectual battles
of the day to the point of relaxation by his gentle readings from eighteenth century
melodrama? And the precise, efficient hours spent in learning French with Mr.
Sharp? Or the German periods, a bit baffling at first, even more so later on, under
the watchful eye of Mr. Lindsey? And certainly you can't forget the days of
violent epithets in Mr. Midgley's History, the indelible impressions -that the intric-
acies of Mathematics made upon your minds through Messrs. Webber, Rodney and
Meislahn. All this not to mention the fascinating times spent recuperating from
the ascent to Lab, Mr. Holmes and Mr. Fullaytor, and enjoying 'the absorbing talks
with Mr. Colton while declining a verb fwhich can't be done-Ed.j.
For both Upper and Middle Schools, the healthful and vigorous athletic periods
with Coaches Morris, Townsend and Sabisch need not be remembered for they will
be felt. K
Do you remember, too, Middle Scholars, your expert supervision by Miss
Kermeth, Mr. Easton's discipline, playful hours with Mr. Warner cutting up wood,
Mr. Fullaytor and his rugged manner, and the 60-yard dash to Mr, Totten's room?
Such memories will be cherished for a long time. But in the accomplishment
of their true purpose, giving us the fundamentals of an education, the faculty will
always be a part of our daily lives to the degree in which they were successful. For
that we can only say a heartfelt Thanks,'.

N a crisp September morning in 1932, ten of the present sixth forrners wandered
bewilderedly into lvfiss Greenleafls room. After looking bashfully at each other
for some time, they began to play, and soon were throwing sand into each other's
eyes and ears like old friends. This motley crew included the socialite two-foot
Boynton, that fat little pusher, Cuffy Williams, tall and silent John Kyfiin, un-
combed Dick Bacon, the pudgy rascal, Avery Fullerton, the sly lad in the hip boots,
Mouse Mardeng the muscular ape, Tony Sporborg, that handsome scoundrel with
the cute sm-ile, Chuck Stevens, that slight but durable will-o-the-wisp, Dave Pike,
and last but never least, the tiny executive, Fat-Man Morris.
That First day was the beginning for a class long to be remembezed at the
Academy. We found a practically new building and proceeded to use it roughly
during the whole of our thirteen years in the school. And so, from Miss Greanleaf
we passed on to the first grade, where under Miss McCormick we were joined by two
muscular lads, Tom Proctor,' Gamble and I-lil Greeley. In the next year we met
the first of those two frank teachers who expressed their honest opinion of us. Miss
Davenport called us the worst second grade she could remember, and that included
three years in a steel-mill town. In the third grade, we met Miss Russell and learned
spelling, the multiplication table and a lot of other things too.
During 1936, we were coached by Miss Swantee and had our first picnic at
Bacon's sandy but Hgee, it's niceu Queechy Lake. The next year saw a small boy
wander into our midst as Tyler Headley joined the miscreants. That same year
Miss Davenport had her second inning, but we were older and much wiser', and
managed to escape with only a little of that red stain. We also met Miss Davis that
same year and really began to learn history. In the sixth grade we reached the sum-
mit of the lower school and were fast becoming uneasy about that frightening word
which was whispered behind closed doors only, Drill',. During the reign of Miss
Snively and Miss jordan, we were enlarged by the two muscle-boys, Scholtz and
Moessinger. That same year, George Ross entered the ranks and distinguished
himself by breaking a window and chasing us all madly around with a chair.
Detail, attennun-shun! This is the worst Gompany G welve ever seen,
rasped the voices of our zealous instructors. We thought we'd never learn the

as Upper Schoolmen, Dr. McCormick left, and although disappointed by his de-
parture, we remained to witness carefree days under Mr. Stetson and knew we had

nothing to fear. During that plebe year, when Mr. Easton's red hair and Mr. Paul's
dictionaries were the only frightening aspects, the then-innocent Ed Lucke and our
preacher Bob Jamison joined the throng. The school year passed-punctuated by
both Mr. Eastonls and hir. Paul's frequent outbursts. We left both embittered.
The second form year was noted mainly for teachers Fred Bowman and
Anson B. Moran. lvfr. Bowman was later hired as a double for Governor Dewey
and could tap-dance too.
As we became freshmen, noisy Harry Boardman, cute Irv Burrows, reliable Bob
Clark, and naive Malcolm Riley joined us. We learned about skiing from Mr.
Owen, Shakespeare from Mr. Pike, and Mr. Midgley carried on Miss Davcnportls
good work. The outlook for the following year was bright, for the societies loomed
there. How we dreaded those initiations! We were surprised and delighted to
learn from Mr. Brown that there were people less scholarly and of less intellect
than we tilliterate Mexicans in Boulder City, Arizonaj. We were alarmed in Chapel
one day by Mr. Brown's violent outburst: Either sing it the right way, or Iam
through, through I At the end of our fourth form year, both Mr. Brown and Mr.
Stetson left. .
Then came the fifth form, and Mr. Meislahn took over. Immediately the
enrollment jumped. Wfas this a sound increase, or was it inflation? I VVe don't
know yet, but those two outcasts from Poker Flat, Bernie Conners and Larry Foley,
several out-of-towners, Blubber Wemple, quiet Roger Sheldon, mysterious Harry
Southworth Cwe donlt understand him yetj, Chief Peckham, Bluebeard Gold, and
unassuming Avery Holzworth descended upon us. Colonel Conners, with the aid
of a pair of loaded dice and a roulette wheel, picked sixteen of us to be sergeants
two were on our way up in the worldj .
And so we were seniors-and a pretty bunch. This year we acquired the
Altamont Fox QCharlie Coonsj, Red Brownell, and the affable Earll' Parkhurst.
Again Colonel Conners rolled those dice, and sixteen of us became officers in the
battalion. Then came our Hrst parade as officers, the dances, the OB. and Scholtzls
party, the 847 Club, Bernie's farewell party, the carnival, the competitive drill, the
sixth form dance,-and now graduation. The school, shaken at our departure, is
still standing fwe have left it for next yearls classj.
We have had a good time here, and now we are ready to go out into the
world, head held high, chest lifted, and heads reeling,-ready to inflict our various
temperaments on the services and colleges of the country. 4'Hold on to your hats-
herc comes the class of '45!
I1ACON4Shc had Dick worried by constant talk of a Scarborough lover until she made the
mistake of showing him to us. Dicque never could comb the Queechy sand from
his hair. Always the last to break a tradition, we called him the Conservative .
BOARDNIAN-Harry always brightened up those long, lonesome evenings. If we all had the
Boardman technique, what couldn't be done? He nearly ran out' of weeping
towels this year.
BOYNTON-The genial proprietor of the 847 Club never really could stomach the Albany
girls after spending the summer with those glamorous lovelies at Madison. Ach
spent about half his last weekends in Connecticut and the other half talking about
them. Oh, those flowing locks, Ach!
BROWNELL- Brownie', came to school with hay-seeds in his hair, but heis gradually

said good-bye to Bernie every week for months before he left for the Army.
Don't forget to remember us to Mr. X the next time you see him!
COONS-How about coming into town tonight? Ture, ture, said the Altamont- Fox, I
hope the bus isnit late. Maybe he will stop answering Mr. Holmes' questions
by saying L'You got me when he's stumped. Some one always pops up with the
answer, I donit want you .
FOLEY- Fluff with his open, innocent face fooled a lot of us. His most famous remark

Defense Stamps or Two for Twenty-Five?
GREELEY-'fGamble,-I mean Greeley, the famous misconception. Hil had Mr. Anthony
beat by a mile with his famous good-will talks at the Girls' Academy. We don't
understand Hil, but maybe they do.
HEADLEY-Sorry our dances bore you, Ty. Guess you couldn,t stand the long distance
between Loudonville and Peyster Street, so you had to foresake the wilderness for
a more civilized spot. Ty has been in the groove for the last four years.
HOLZWORTH- Right shoulder, ohms Ei' Avery bafHed us for two months with his Green-
bush accent before our trained interpreter, the jovial Math. man, translated
it into English. We never could Hgure out what happened to him that night at
Scholtzfs after the Guidon.
JAMISON-Always great on humming, der fuehrer could be counted on to brighten up
any class with the latest funeral march. Bob never did get to hold that seance
we heard so much about. -

KYFFIN-In spite of his good looks, the kitten never could be inveigled into a date with
them fickle wimmin . John never could quite throw Lucke out of the window.
When he could put the check-rein on his wild young energy, Jinx would put

think you're kidding, Ed, the Colonel, the teachers, the redhead, or yourself?
IVIARDEN-Herels our vote for the potential class lover f Aw, I don't know any girls. j
The first ten years are the hardest, Bill. How about naming Dartmouth's athletes

session at the 847 Club.
MOESSINGER-Everybody thought Red was a woman hater until they saw him in action
at the l'Royal'l. Doesn't drink, doe-sn't smoke, howls he make out with Cuffy?
Keep saving yourself for that Lake George belle, Red. He made 357.23 and
two Als QU on Mr. Midgley's radio.
MORRIS-That summer on those dashing expeditions to Sehroon Lake and Pennsylvania,
Barr and Harry formed a famous partnership. Barr found Albany quite tame
after those starry Timlo evenings, and was often to be found in Troy. The fat
man used to drive the truck at Timlo-maybe the steering wheel did break, maybe
the sand did grip the wheels, but there was no evidence that Barr used the brakes.
PARKHURST-The big boy from Schenectady had a smile for everybody. Jovial Parkie
surprised us all in the Vincentian game with that tremendous wallop.
PECKHAM- Whatta ya think, Chief? Don't know, Moe, Ugh! Chief always had the
French class waiting for his next word. He's working on a book called Why
the present-day Indian is so reservedu.
PIKE-Ellery Queen is known as the logical successor to Sherlock Holmes, Dave is known as
the logical successor to Roy Wooster. Oppressed by our somber society, Dave,
alias Michael George, sought refuge in a Manhattan penthouse. C Hey Mike!
RILEY-At the end of ,the 1920's the little red man immigrated from Czechoslovakia. He
and the great depression hit America at the same time. Malcolmls exploits in
the realm of collegiate charm at Connecticut College have kept us guessing.
When he came back with a sunburned face, someone compared Riley with the
poem, 'fThe frost is on the punkin .
ROSS-Joe does everything in the Academy but his homework. How do you get by, Joscef?
You don't do your homework, you don't do your themes, you don't do your
classwork, but Illl have to give you an 'AY' Oh, well, such is lifemwhere there's
pessimism, there,s Ross.
SCHOLTZ-One of the big men around school, f'Shortiel, took great delight in his toy
soldiers. Jim had a lot of faculty friends, and was untouched by the rebellious
spirit. As far as social life was concerned,-strictly aloof.
SHELDON-Roger joined the Navy to escape Sam Baeon's classes. ,Hal ha! Rog, it
crossed you up. They have them at Sampson, too. Maybe the Navy can tear
Mr. Studious away from his books. Good luck, Salty!
SOUTHWORTH-An episode on a test paper on Monday morning- Mr, Webber-I knew
it last night, I knew it again this morning, but I don't know it now. Love,
Harryn. One teacher says, When I see you out there running the mile, working
so hard and so determined, I admire you, but when I get you in my history
class . . . . Silence is golden.
SPORBORG-The bag takes our vote for 'fthe origin of the speciesw. He has that caveman
approach, about as subtle as a Mack truck. Q: Taking this down, Sporborg?
A: No, why should I?',
STEVENS-When Chuck got his tooth fixed, the dentist gave him gas. He never did wake
up. I didn't know we shouldn't do that. Oh, those exotic weekends!
WEIVIPLE-Clark was loudest when bemoaning his fate and the tough breaks chance gave
him. The Dumb Dutchmann delighted in skipping the Schenectady bus so he
could hitch-hike to school, in leaving his English class to see the nurse and in
complaining untiringly to the teachers. Come on, Gee!
WILLIAMS-Is this trip really necessary, Pete? Cuffy ,planned to get admitted to Williams
College on his name alone. Dr. Fischoff saw more of him than the Academy did.

TI-lllE SlEVlElNTYalFlIlFTlHI BATTALION
HE Albany Academy Cadet Battalion of 194-4-45 was one of the largest Bat-
talions since the organization of the military unit in 1870. The battalion C243
strongj was formed, as soon as school opened in September, with all members of
the Middle and Upper Schools participating.
The Battalion, which is the only organization to which every student in the
upper six forms belongs, emphasizes discipline and the feeling that the cadet Hgrayw
must receive highest esteem.
During the first month of drill, the recruits were instructed in the manual of
arms and in marching with the seniors alternating as officers. Thus, after each
senior had been rated according to his merits, the commissions were announced.
Col. John Conners, Jr., professor of military science and tactics, presented the
sixteen commissions with Major Scholtz leading the Battalion in its seventy-fifth
The succeeding weeks were devoted to preparation for the Armistice Day
After making a creditable appearance on Armistice Day, the military unit went
indoors and began its winter program. Through the winter months, the cadets were
taught map-reading, triangulation, first-aid, military courtesy, rifle marksmanship,
and the Infantry Drill Regulations. Recruits continued practicing the manual of
arms under special instructors.
In February, the company commanders began intense preparation for the
annual Guidon Drill to be held on March 23. During the weeks that followed, the
companies drilled at the Troop B Armory to attain their highest proficiency in
close-order drill. Previous years' traditional uthirty-twol' drills were enlarged to
forty in the company competition for the coveted guidons.
With only five days' practice for the drill at the Washington Avenue Tenth
Infantry Armory, most of the time was spent in reviewing the Battalion drill.
Friday, March 23, the Guidon Drill, the biggest event of the year, finally arrived.
The Battalion passed in review before Governor Dewey and his staff. During
the evening parade, which followed the Guard Mount, Governor Dewey awarded
the Guidons to Captain Richard NI. Bacon of Company B, the winning company.
Alumni, parents and friends were present to witness this outstanding function
of the year.

lettermen returned from the previous year. They were co-captains Barr Morris
and Jim Seholtz, Tony Sporborg and Bernie Conners fV.I. transferj.
In the opening game, the Red and Black defeated Philip Schuyler, 20-0.
Against two tough Schenectady high schools, Mont Pleasant and Nott Terrace,
the Academy team came out victorious, 7-O and 14-6, respectively.
Cn October 28, the Academy squad met Albany High on our field. After at
thrilling comeback for us, the score at half time was 20-19 in favor of Albany High.
The second half revealed that both teams were very weak, as Academy pulled ahead
in the final stages only to lose the game in the last few minutes by a 33-32 score.
The following week, a sluggish Red and Black eleven lost to a powerful
Cranwell squad, 20-7.
In the last tilt of the year we suffered our third defeat of the season by losing
19-0 against Vincentian.
Next year's football team appears to have both spirit and power. Those re-
turning are Captain Jerry Elliot, Ben Cubbage, Ted Woodward, Doug Canaday,
Russ Dodds and John Kyfhn.

THE lBASlElBAlLlL SEASON
T the beginning of this year, the team with its six holdovers looked fairly good
Having defeated Milne in a non-league game, the team lost the second game
to Vincentian, 14-12, although the Cadets showed some potential batting power by
rallying in the final inning.
After this game, rainy weather began to take its toll by postponing four succes-
sive games. However, later, the team again pitted its skill and strategy against t-he
other highly favored Albany nines. Although Albany High School, C.B.A., and
Vince-ntian gained three straight victories from us, Academy scored its second win
over Schuyler, with the aid of Outfielder Dick Bryant. The one game this year
in which the team had a Held day was in the postponed contest with Darrow, for
almost everyone on the squad got a hit, all of which helped to win the game by the
score of 19-2.
The team's captain and flashy infielder, Bernie Conners, was inducted into the
Armed Forces shortly before this game and therefore forced Coach Morris to
revamp his inheld slightly. Soon afterwards, however, the infield had to be changed
again, for Chick Cleveland, shortstop and pitcher, left school. In the two tilts
following his departure, the Cadets triumphed once to end the season with a record
of Hve wins and seven losses. it

HIS year, because of transportation difficulties, the hockey team was able to
play only two oHicial games, one with the Williams College Freshmen, and the
other with the West Point Plebes.
The team was very fortunate in that several let-termen of the previous season
were back on the squad. It was not fortunate in the weather, however, for because
of the snow, practice was difficult.
The team played remarkably well against the heavier Williams players. The
score was 1-0 in favor of Williams, this point being made in the end of the last
The second game was played at West Point. A heavy snowfall the previous
week had made practice impossible, but this rest did not help the team. The team
was defeated by the Plebes, 6-2.
The prospects for next year's team are very promising, and under the able
coaching of Mr. Townsend, the team should be able to have a successful season.

HIS year's track team took the majority of first places, but could not get enough
second and third places to win. Of the four meets scheduled, those with
Watervliet and Philip Schuyler were called off because of the weather. In the
meets wit'h Bethlehem Central and C.B.A. we lost by scores of 56-48, 58-46,
jim Scholtz and co-captains Ed Lucke and Harry Southworth were consistent
winners. Scholtz broke his own record in the shot put, and Southworth broke his
record in the mile twice. Tony Sporborg he-lped in the broad jump, and Bill
Marden in the shot put and discus.
In the Albany Track and Field Meet we took four first places: Jim Scholtz,
shot put and discus, Harry Southworth, mile run, and Ed Lucke, half-mile run.
John DeGraff in the quarter and Bill Marden in the discus took third place each
to make our total add up to fourth place.

S this article is written, the tennis team, captained by Irv Burrows, has played
two matches, defeating Troy High, 5-1, and losing to Milne, 3-7. It has a return
match with Troy, and two with Milne yet to play. Also it will oppose Nott Terrace
twice, Williams College, Bethlehem Central and a faculty team. A
An unusually large number of 'boys turned out for practice. Coach Totten
immediately set to work and has done an excellent job in improving individual play-
ing as well as in developing teamwork for doubles players. His efforts have brought
about a team strong in numbers, cooperation and spirit. Manager Tom O'Connor's
fine work also deserves a good deal of praise.
Outstanding in the two completed matches were Bill Sutherland and Dave
Stevenson, both as single players and as a doubles team, Bruce Cobden's and Red
Diamond's work in doubles matches, and Dick Lauterback and Tom Gamble's
The team is expected to complete a good record this year and with only Irv

THE STUDENT CCClUNCClIlL
HE Hrst act of this year's student council was to hold elections. Barr Morris,
chosen President by a vote of the entire student body, presided as Dick Bacon
was elected Vice-President, Irv Burrows Secretary, and John Kyflin Treasurer.
Other members were Jim Scholtz of the Sixth Form, Ted Woodward of the Fifth
Form, and Clark Daggett and Jim Fullerton from the Fouth and Third forms
respectively. Mr. Meislahn acted as faculty adviser.
In its chief capacity as a medium between the faculty and the student body,
the council this year performed many acts, the most important being these: contrib-
uting money to the War Chest, Red Cross and similar institutions, setting the dates
and times for all dances during the year, and distributing the student tax. Weekly
meetings were held with Mr. Meislahn during which many student matters were
discussed and acted upon.
Student Council members gain valuable knowledge from their experiences with
the faculty and other members. '

HE Fish 51 Pumpkin was extremely fortunate this year in having started with a
clean slate. All previous de'bts had been wiped away by means of gifts from
the Mothers' and Fathers' Associations and by the diligent and economical work
of last year's Board. As in former years, the publication was brought back into
circulation as a four-page issue. 'There were twelve editions this year, spaced about
two or three weeks apart, thus adequately covering the news of the school.
In December, as a year ago, the Alumni Association sponsored an issue pur-
posely for our graduates who are serving with the forces of the United States. Every
alumnus was mailed a copy of this publication entirely at the expense of the Asso-
ciation. We received many letters of gratitude, thanking us for our work in
connection with this special feature. We feel only too happy that wehcould have
been of service to those of the boys who once knew and still remember the life at
the Academy. I
So, all in all, the publications have been a successful venture this year. The
staff 'of this year's Fish' G? Pumpkin has 'been especially efficient and loyal. We leave
the management of the school paper in the hands of next yearls class, our
successors, wishing them good luck to help them along their way.

wo minutes to curtain !-Two minutes to curtain-! The house-lights dimmed
and the curtain rose on the 1944- production of the joint Dramatics Clubs. The
play, a mystery-comedy called 'iGhost Wanted by Guernsey Le Pelley, was directed
by Miss Ella R. Robinson of the Girls' Academy and Mr. Lawrence H. Pike of our
school. The cast included Joann Besch, Cherry Hockett, Lee Crandle, Alice Webber,
Jean James, Marcia Hedberg, Geraldine Retanne fwho took Joan Mandlebaurrfs
partj, Dick Bacon, Ed McDonald, George Ross, Bob Jamison, and Bruce Gobden.
And it is now released for publication that Hil Greeley played the part of the
The success of the play is proven by the fact that there was a record audience
and a very enthusiastic one, that the clubs were able to give S100 to the Red Gross,
and by the fact that there were so many favorable comments.
President David Pike, Secretary Robert Jamison, and Treasurer Hildreth
Greeley wish to thank Miss Robinson and Mr. Pike for their expert staging, the
cast for its Hne cooperation, and the many production committees for their .efficiency
in managing the technical details of the play. '

ODAY we are closing a chapter of our lives. With this exercise, our high school
years are ended. Recent commencements, during the war years, have brought
endings more abrupt, more Hnal than other commencements. After today, friend-
ships which have lasted for many years will be temporarily interrupted, if not
permanently broken off. This is drastic medicine at our age and is not softened
by any immediate prospect of college years. But we must face our future like men,
must this day become men. ,
' How have we been prepared for our entrance into this 'high estate?
The loving care of our parents laid the foundations on which our moral
structures are built. They have given us needed confidence in early childhood, they
have piloted us through the dangerous years of adolescence now so suddenly finished.
Our teachers have helped us when urgent problems have arisen, they have been
our good friends and valued counselors. f
The trustees of the Academy have seen to it that t-he best equipment obtainable
has been placed at our disposal, that our education might be the finest possible.
4 Our athletic coaches have taught us to play the game cleanly, fairly and with
a fierce will to win, have taught us to take victory with modesty and defeats with our
heads up and our backs stiff.
For -this we thank them all. The preparation which they have given us will stand
us in good stead. For as we leave the Academy, we go forth to take our part in
the most gigantic war in the history of mankind. Unlike the last few graduating
classes, we are fortunate in that we are entering a war that is half won. The
triumph of our arms in Europe has once more gloriously blazoned the name of
America across the pages of history. The Academy's part in that triumph lhas not
been small. More than 600 alumni are now in service. Twenty-two have given
their lives. X
From liberation in the West, we shall sweep on t'o victory in the East. There is
hard fighting ahead, fighting in which we may take part, but there is no doubt that
we shall win, for the yellow tyrant can never stop the aroused might of the free
peoples of the earth.
Our particular responsibility, however, is an even greater one than winning the
war. Our generation will determine the future of the world. We must help to guide
our country in company with all other nations from the turbulent waters of war to
the as yet unmapped channels of peace.
To this end have our past preparations been dedicated, to this end must our
future energies be directed. We must not betray those who have fallen, for if we
fail, there may never be a third chance.
Classmates: this is the last time that we shall stand before the school. Our
close unit is now dissolved. To next year's Sixth Form we leave the leadership of
the school, a responsibility which will call for t-heir best, but we are confident that
they will succeed in it. For us the hour strikes, the trumpet calls. And so-
