THEODORE N. ANDERSON
To Mr. Theodore Anderson, who has taught us the value of genlal comradeshxp
and sincere friendship, we, the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Forty one dedicate
this, our year-book.
R. W. Emerson
"A ruddy drop of manly blood
The surging sea out-weighs,
The world uncertain comes and goes,
The lover rooted stays.
I fancied he was fled,-
And, after many a year,
Glowed unexhausted kindliness
Like daily sunrise there.
My careful heart was free again,
O friend, my bosom said,
Through thee alone the sky is arched,
Through thee the rose is red.
All things through thee take nobler
And look beyond the earth,
The mill-round of our fate appears
A sun-path in the worth.
Me, too, thy nobleness has taught
To master my despair,
The fountains of my hidden life
Are through thy friendship fairf,
"Lives of great men all remind as
We can make our lives sublime,
And departing, leave hehind us
Footprints on the sands of time."
Through the year the students of Albion High School have
Worked and played together, lived Democracy in its finest form.
Our school, portraying the kind of world in which we shall live,
is a real laboratory of democratic living. Here we learn that in a
free World one must accept his responsibilities as well as enjoy his
privileges, and only as all citizens shall do this can we, as a school
or as a nation, be truly happy.
The CHEVRON records in picture and in story the activities that
have occupied the students and faculty in school. Many whose
names and pictures appear in these pages will depart from school
this year, ready to take their places in the larger life that lies ahead.
As they have left "footprints on the sands of time" in school, so will
they continue on through life knowing, as Well may we all, that
"Not enjoyment and not sorrow
ls our destined end or way,
Bat to act that each tomorrow
Finds as farther than today."

After a long, serious illness, Miss Eunice Richardson of
the Faculty passed away November 12, 1940.
Practically all of Miss Richardson's life was spent in
Albion where she attended school, graduating in 1911.
After finishing at Brockport Normal, she accepted a position
at New York Mills. During the First World War, she Hdid
her bit" in Washington until she returned to Albion, where
as a Fifth and Sixth Grade teacher, she taught for over
Because of her sturdy character and high principle,
Miss Richardson personified the Ideal Teacher who gave
completely of herself to her pupils and her position. Al-
though her ill health was apparent to all, she never used
her sickness as an excuse for neglecting her work. She
toiled far beyond her strength and resigned only when she
could carry on no longer.
Truly, Miss Richardson was a lovely person and a
Lillian A. Achilles
The community was shocked, April 17, to hear of the
sudden death of Miss Lillian A. Achilles as she was on her
way to work. Fragile and delicate, Miss Achilles had been
in poor health, nevertheless, she had been able to attend
her duties at the Library.
Born in Ridgeway, 1871, Miss Lillian A. Achilles of
three score and ten years had come to symbolize all that is
good and beautiful in our midst. Helping to found,
cradling, nuturing it, she gave to Swan Library a vitality
that has made it a living force in the town. Many citizens,
young and old, are eager readers because of the gracious
presence of Miss Achilles at her desk.
Although she realistically became a part of this modern
age with its hurly-burly crudities, Miss Achilles never lost
the kindly refinement of a Nineteenth Century Gentle-

ln the fall of 1937 Albion lligh School opened its doors to welcome more than
one hundred timid Freshmen.
It was their good fortune to have Miss Adams as adviser during their Freshman,
Sophomore, and Iunior years. Under her guidance several functions were held
which gave the class members social experience. During their Freshman year.
parties were held at Christmas and in the spring. The following year the outstand-
ing social event was a successful l'lallowe'en masquerade party. During their junior
year the class sponsored a magazine drive to finance their junior Banquet and Prom.
Last fall, as Seniors, they returned to school with a more thoughtful and serious
attitude. aware that this was to be their last year at Albion lligh School. Under the
guidance of Miss Wzilsli they found greater responsibilities awaiting them. ln early
fall a meeting was called for the purpose of electing officers. The new democratic
method of voting was employed in the school this year for the first time. Thomas
McNall served very ably as treasurer during the first semester, but his heavy school
schedule necessitated his resignation. Kinyon Brooks was then appointed to succeed
Autumn's social event for the Seniors was the highly successful Football Prom.
Another very delightful occasion was the Easter Ball, which everyone wholeheartedly
enjoyed. This was soon followed by the formal Commencement exercises, which
concluded their careers as students of Albion Iligh School. May their glories increase
with each successive year.

From the ashes Of eternity a flame we could not hold has gone into the
everlasting. For so brief a time, she who has passed from Our sight but
not from our heart, flung the light of her glowing presence upon our
lives. Because the Class of 1941 glimpsed that gleam, the shadow will
forever be less intense and the remembrance more vivid.

lflaunting conviction lilte a wellfearned aura, almost two hundred juniors walk
the corridors of .Xlhion lligh today, not unaware, however, that in i933 the doors
swung open to admit a group of thoroughlyhfrightened youngsters.
Miss Trivisond, their class adviser, helping to guide their uncertain destinies
with a firm. friendly hand, has led them toward the final triumph! These proud
upperfelassmen held their first party in Decemher. ln the fall, hoping to augment
their finances, the class conducted a most successful magazine campaign, and in
lN'larch with true lrish friendliness joined the Sophomore Class in a eelehration
dedicated to the lrish saint.
ln liehruary. memhers of the class received the symhol of their prestige and
honor, the .lunior llingg later, some purchased gold pins. With the arrival of spring,
came the hig eventl Eagerly anticipated hy all loyal juniors, the annual Banquet
and Prom was well attended and its memory tucked away in lavender for future
years. To prove that it was not all laughter and merriment the class pledged several
of its memhers to that criterion of super achievement, the National llonor Society.
As the sun dial marks the passing hours, so for the Class of '42 did these in-
cidents weave a thread of enduring memory. Surely, these youngsters will continue
to march steadfastly toward ultimate victory and conclude their lligh School Pil-
grimage in a hurst of gloryl

As lireshmen we have ltept rather closely to our worli, getting a good start on
our secondary education. Nevertheless, with the help ol bliss Laird. our adviser,
we have managed to sandwich in two parties to help us to get better acquainted
The first one was held in the gym on November l. As a means of entertainf
ment the members daneed, participated in games, and were entertained by Margaret
hlarlts and Evelyn Sadowslti, who rendered vocal numbers. Cider and doughnuts
were served later to the seventy-five or eighty present. Miss Laird, Mathew Ciszek,
Virginia hlonacelli and Florence Soeciarelli deserve our thanlxs lior taking charge
of such a delightful party.
The second party was held on February 28 in the Gymnasium. There were
eighty present. We played games, danced, held an amateur show, and ate ice cream
and cake. hlr. Sherman and Mr. Coolt favored us with some songs ol' "The Good
Old Days." It was because of the cooperation of Mathew Ciszelt, loy Clement,
Emma Eibl working with Miss Laird, who was in charge, that the party was a success.
Next year we intend that you shall hear more of us!

At their first meeting, the P. Cfs elected officers, using the new democratic
method inaugurated this year. The most important accomplishment of the class was
the purchase of a radio. A Thanksgiving dance, held on November 20, was a
decided success and made possible the payment for the radio. This dance was
arranged and conducted by a committee consisting of Evadean Cliff, Audrey Tindale,
Willizim Casement, Arnold DiLaura, Thomas Heard, and Edward Ronan.
The first semesters roll call of post graduates was as follows: Ruth Rakeman,
lane Reach, Franklin Broadwell, George Callard, Wfilliam Casement, Evadean Cliff,

'ilset hint that seeketh cease not from his search until he find"
ldeals are like stars for bv following them we reach our destiny. The National
Honor Society, founded in 1903 by the Department of Secondary School Principals,
has for its purpose four cardinal objectives. Those pupils who enter the portals of
this organization pledge themselves to "bear forward the searching light of truth, to
lead so that others may follow in the light, to keep burning in our school a high
ambition for the enduring values of life, and to forget self in service."
In April the fourteen members of Albion High School met in the llome
Economics Room for their first meeting of this school year with Mrs. Wtird llurlburt
as guest speaker of the evening. Plans were initiated for the establishment of a
"Lost and Found" Department by thc Society.
At thc induction ceremony of April 28 the following candidates were admitted
to the Society: Edna Ball, Kinyon Brooks, Esther Bulmore, Eleanor Clark, Marilyn
Delaano, Gertrude Gurney, Curtis Lyman, Betty Myers, Kenneth Pettine, Leslene
Phillips, Ruth Schnitzer, Gerald VanVleet, Dorothy VanVlcct, John VVeeks.

And having set your steps regard not -much
The tlownward laughter clinging at your feet,
Nor mferuiuch the warning, only know,
As well as you know down from lantern-light,
That far ahove you, for you, and within you,
There hurns and shines and lives, unwavering
And always yours, the truth."

Since its origin in 1934, the Senior Service Squad has successfully accom-
plished its aim for the furtherance of good-fellowship among its members, for par-
ticipation and service in school and community activities, and for the cooperation
of Senior girls.
This year the interesting theme, "As We See Ourselvesfi was selected. During
the first semester both Miss Adams and Mr. Bergerson aided in developing this topic,
and other speakers presented various aspects of the same subject.
The Club has attempted to be of some benefit in its service activities this year.
Members of the squad served regularly as monitors, whose duty it is to keep order
in the corridors, as well as to provide information for school guests. During the
Christmas season, the girls displayed outstanding cooperation. Each member donated
either food or money for baskets which were prepared to aid needy families.
Plans for the social activities of the Club aroused an intense interest among the
members. These events consisted of a roller-skating party, several dances, and the
annual Senior Service Squad Banquet.
Several sources were discovered for financing the Club activities. During the
football season, stickers were sold and at basketball games both schedule pencils and
candy were available to the students for 'i nominal fee. Noon-hour dances also
served to increase finances of the Club.
in addition to our financial aid and our social activities our greatest support
has been proffered by our adviser, Miss Evelyn Fisher, to whom we hereby acl
knowledge our very sincere gratitude.

"Our success is measured,
Not hy what we'd like to do,
But by the sincere and honest efforts,
That see our wishes through."
The theory, "Practice makes perfect", was allowed a trial by hir. Cook in
Camera Club as the members strove to master the act of photography. The mem-
bership, limited to those who possess experience in photography and an interest in
attending Camera Club meetings, enabled the group to attempt more advanced
fields of work.
After a demonstration of enlarging by Mr. Cook, the members tried individual
work. Some of the group brought pictures, the negatives of which were lost, and
they were successful in producing them.
It had been intended that the Camera Club should take a trip to Eastman
Kodak Company to view the new types of cameras, but because of the companys
participation in government work, visitors are not allowed.
The club discussed the problem of pursuing its hobby economically, and at the
beginning of the second semester it was accordingly suggested that some of the
necessary darkroom equipment be made. Therefore, projects such as printing boxes
and enlargers were undertaken in the shop under the guidance of Mr. Cook.

The Albion Chapter of the Future Farmers of America commenced the 1940-41
year by attending the New York Worldis Fair in a group. Approximately thirty-five
boys undertook this trip. At the State Fair the Albion Chapter was awarded more
ribbons than was any other. Here Roger Pratt placed fifth in the Horse ludging
Contest, while David Nesbitt qualified for eighth place in Apple lodging and sixth
place in Potato Judging. At Rochester's Western New York Horticultural Show, our
Apple judging Team, composed of Roger Pratt, Herbert Randemer, and David Nes-
bitt, secured champion honors and received a large trophy cup. Also, David Nesbitt
defeated competitors by gaining first place. Five of the members attended the Na-
tional F. F. A. Convention at Kansas City with their adviser, hir. Willizim Sherman.
Twelve of our members participated in Farm and Home week at Cornell, and the
boys competed favorably in their various contests. Leonard Snyder was awarded
third place in the seed identification contest and the chapter received a small plaque.
Franklin Rroadwcll scored eleventh in the Plant Diseased contest and David Nesbitt
fifteenth in potato judging.
The boys have enjoyed a very active program of sports with basketball, football,
baseball and track predominating. The club also sponsored a Father and Son's Ran-
quet, several picnics, and a dance. Also this spring the chapter sponsored an amateur
show with Clinton Ruehlman, radio star of Station VVCR in Buffalo, as master of
ceremonies. Many amateurs took part, and three girls from the State School for the
Rlind won first place. This provided our treasury with the money to carry on the
rest of the spring activities.

DRAMATICS AND PUBLIC SPEAKING
One of the maxims of Publius Syrus is translated, "Speech is a mirror of the
soul, as a man speaks, so is he." find Thcmistocles said, "il mans discourse is like to
a rich Persian carpet, the beautiful figures and patterns of which can be shown only
by spreading and extending it out."
This year it has been the chief endeavor of the students of public speaking and
drama in Albion lligh School, to try to exemplify in some slight degree through their
work, the spirit indicated in these txvo quotations. First there has been an effort to
develop the individual in mind and spirit, secondly, the students have tried to create
rich patterns of growth by the sharing of the wisdom of the great minds of all ages.
In dramatics three projects have been attempted. On October lo, 1940, the
Seniors. assisted by several others, gave a highly successful performance of the Edna
Ferber-George Kaufman comedy, "Stage Door". This is a splendid vehicle for high
school performance because it portrays some of the hopes. fears and problems of
young people. This play provided an opportunity for a large number of students to
act a great variety of roles. Outstanding in smoothness, diction and character in-
terpretation, this play was very well received.

COMMENCEMENT SPEAKERS and SIGNOR PRIZE SPEAKERS
Five students prepared and presented the one-act comedy, "Wlio Gets the Car
Tonight," by Chris Sergel, as a means of developing student interest in dramatics.
This playlet provided recreation at a high school assembly, at a P. T. A. meeting
and in an exchange assembly program at Medina High School.
As a means of demonstrating a different type of dramatic expression, the inter-
lude "Nevertheless," by Stuart Wrillzice, was given at an assembly. A delightfully
written playlet, it pleased the audience with its grace and charm.
Approximately every two weeks, an assembly program has been given through-
out the year, usually presenting six speakers, who occasionally have been assisted by
some of the schools musicians. An endeavor has been made to provide programs of
sufficient variety to furnish interesting topics for all groups in the student body.
llistory, poetry, drama, humor and selections have been interpreted by some sixty
students, who have worked hard to present enjoyable and commendable programs.
lr is interesting to note that whenever requests have been made for additional pro-
grams, volunteers have made these preparations very easy. As a fundamental train-
ing for the highly important Signer Prize and Commencement programs, the bi-
monthly assemblies are invaluable practice.
For through the experience of appearing before a large audience, the student
gains poise, self-confidence and skill, and eventually develops his natural abilities into
a rich pattern Hwhich can be shown only by spreading and extending it outf'

The 1940 Albion High School Baseball Team successfully defended their
Cenesee'Orleans championship by winning seven out of eight league games.
Approximately thirty-nine players answered Coach Spierdowis' call at the be-
ginning of the season, but because of the withdrawal of some boys and the elimina-
tion of others from the squad, by the end of the season twenty-two players were
reporting for practice.
The nucleus of the 1940 nine consisted of Russell Soper and Grayson Norman,
pitchers, Leo Donahue, shortstop, and Leonard lVlager, center field. The remainder
of the starting line-up was usually composed of Ludington, Pettine, Curzinski, and
Acchione with Boccaccio, Fintak, and Altman also seeing quite a bit of action. The
manager of the 1940 team was Edward Ronan.
For two years Albion High eliminated all its opponents until the finals in Roch-
ester. But each time the Albion boys, although they apparently possessed the spirit,
ability, and the support, seemed unable to come out on top.
The team trimmed Warsaw High to the tune of 15 to 2 in the semiefinals. In
the finals, the boys lost a hard fought ball game to Canandaigua through no fault of
their own, as each one played his best game of the season. The final score of the
Canandaigua game was 5-4.
Chronologically the scores of the season's games are as follows:
Albion 3-Holley 1 Albion 1-Oakfield 0

The Albion High School Football Team had a most successful season this year,
winning five out of seven games. Much credit is due Coach Spierdowis and Assistant
Coach Derrick for their capable leadership, as well as Co-captains Peter Theodorakos
and James Aina and Manager Clyde Simpson. "Pete's" indomitable fighting spirit
and hard play bolstered the team's morale throughout the season.
Several of the boys have hung up their football togs for the last time at Albion
High. Co-captains James Aina and Peter Theodorakos will be sorely missed next
year, as will backs Edward Ronan and Howard Brooks, and lineman Melvin Quag-
liana. Leo Donahue, four year quarterback who left school in the middle of the
season, will also be missing from the line-up when the Purple and White take the
field again next year.
The scores are as follows:
Albion 6-East Aurora 7 Albion 14-Akron 0
Albion 20-LeRoy 7 Albion 15-East Rochester 6
Albion 12-Fairport 18 Albion 26-Medina O

The 1940-41 Basketball season proved an unfortunate one, since the team lost
every game. All eight games of the Genesee-Orleans County League games, as well
as the six non-league games resulted in decisions unfavorable to Albion.
Probably the most notable game of the entire season was the one with lflolley.
Until the last minutes of play there was a continual tie, however, llollcy emerged
To say that the season was unfavorable in every respect would be false. Credit
is due a gallant team who faced superior opposition with unfailing courage. Twelve
letters were awarded instead of the usual ten,
