Wherever they may be, our thoughts go with them. We pray that they may soon return to a peaceful America. ifkikiiriifvftfaiksfkifkvfkikik K K l K l-K-K-l-K-l-i-l-K-K-l----l-K-l-l- l-K-l-l-l-K-K-i-K-K-K-K-l-K K K i FOREWOBll It has been a common but most welcome experience this year to see boys in uniform wandering through the halls of Albion High School, visiting their old classrooms, arguing with teachers as to exactly which seat they used to occupy. The uniforms may differg the ranks may diiferg but in one respect the boys are all alike-sooner or later they get around to that eager phrase, "Remember when . . . Pm These boys may be far away from Albion High School now, but they have shown us that they will never forget their school days. It is for them that the "Chevron" Staff has edited this year- book. We hope our letters will give them pictures of our life at school during the years of 1944-1945. More than this, however, we hope our letters may help the boys to recapture memories of their own days at Albion High School . . . to "remember when."

STUDENT COUNCIL Dear Ken, May 1, 1945 You probably donlt remember me, for I was only a Freshman when you were President of Student Council. However, I remember you very clearly for the won- derful work you did as President. Maybe you recall Alvin Watersoii, dashing young Senior of today. Well, he was elected President of this year's Student Council. Marcia Daniels was chosen Vice-President, and Beverly Murray is Secretary and Treasurer. Did you ever have to work at the stand during the football games when you were in school? If so, perhaps this little account will sound only too familiar. A com- mittee was formed from the members of Student Council to sell refreshments at the games. Theoretically, this was a good idea, but those who volunteered for the work bumped up against a little stark reality. It was a pitiful sight they -made, with mustard smeared all over their faces and behind their ears, and with rain, which accompanied nearly every game, continually drenching them. The work was profit- able if not pleasurable, however, for Student Council has made more money this year than in any former year. lncidentally, all the workers did survive. Another event that was harrowing in its preparation but most enjoyable as a finished product was the Annual Football Prom, put on by the Student Council in honor of the football players, whom were all proud of for having won at least one game. Besides being a well-arranged event, the Prom was a great help in raising funds for the Athletic Association. The student Council kept order in the halls by means of strict-faced monitors. There have been a few times when the monitors have made more noise than the students, but, all in all, they have done a fine job and have made our halls just about as peaceful as we think they should be. Since l'm writing this while on monitor duty, llll have to end now, for seventh period is just about over, and I'd better prepare for the bus-rush. Take care of yourself.

Robinson, A. DeCarlo. W. J. Neal. E. McColl SENIOR CLASS May l. 1945 Dear Les, Congratulations on being accepted for O. C. S.! l bet it'll be different from your high school days. Remember them? Were now able to look back and re- member too, for it's almost the end of the trail for the Class of A45. We remember how, as luniors, we tried to avoid rhetoricals, but it was no use. We laugh now, but it wasnit funny then! We take a bow for having surpassed any preceding class in the magazine drive. With the money earned from this campaign we financed the Iunior Prom. We remember the Easter Ball, a highlight of our Senior year. We really had our headaches, trying to make three different shades of green all seem to match and to make our colorful decorations seem spring-like. You should have seen the Senior Play that was never put on. After weeks of practicing and having heart failure as Anthony DeCarlo turned somersaults over the footlights, we finally had to give up having the play because of the fuel shortage. l am enclosing a snapshot of our officers. That is Anthony DeCarlo at the desk: he's our President and also Valedictorian. Wilma lean Neal is Vice-President and Salutatoriang Esther McColl, Treasurerg and Marilyn Robinson, Secretary. Yes, now we are dignified Seniors and very quiet in homeroom. Of course. Miss Elson and Mr. Anderson might have a different opinion, but how could 238 be quiet when kids like Iohn Coffey, Patsy Burgio, and Ioe Nenni get together for the sole purpose of making Bill Bradley give out with his tinkling laugh? Our graduating class is doomed to lean on the feminine side this year, since several of the boys have left for the Armed Forces. The Navy has taken Levi Wood- cookg Lee Spanton has enlisted in the Merchant Marinesg Delois Thompson is an air cadetg joseph Nenni expects to be in the Army soong and Keith Hinman, Tommy Dragon, and Alvin Waterson are awaiting their call from' the Merchant Marines and Air Corps respectively. It's the end of the trail, we know. But remembering that Albion High School, as any American school, is a symbol of what you are fighting for, we, also, are now ready to take our places in the confused world of today.

JUNIGR CLASS May 1, 1945 Dear Bob, l received your letter asking for goingsaon about school, and l apologize for not answering sooner Ca little matter of too much homework to doj. Since this is my Iunior year, most of the news will have a third year slant to it, if you don't object too much. To begin at the beginning, here are our class officers. Howard Holliday is President, with lames King as his only vice. Jennie Brooks and -lean Donahue are filling the posts of Secretary and Treasurer in that order. Now for some really big news. As you probably know, one of the fund-raising schemes of the Iuniors in past years has been the selling of magazine subscriptions. Well, this yearls class got down to business and really 'ioutclassedu all previous efforts with a grand total of S961 collected. The hard work of the team captains and their fellow students has set a mark which will be hard to equal. Top Row: S. Landauer, K. Hudson, D. Mansell, P. Chorney, W. Spanton, M. Mattern, J.

JUNIOR CLASS As the school year wears on, the number of juniors taking part in extra- curricular activities has become more and more evident. You'd probably be amazed at our variety of interests. We can point with what we feel is pardonable pride to the third-year students who are participating in athletics or in the activities of the music department. Then there are the Signor Prize Speakers. I'1l name them in hope that you will recognize a familiar name. They are: Marie Gurzenski, Mary Penasack, Muriel Rowley, Barbara Stoney, Marion Wickhziin, Anthony Ciarico, Kirk Hudson, James King, Charles Paganelli, and Patsy Sacco. Muriel Rowley and Charles Paganelli were the prize winners. Of course it vvouldnlt do to leave out an account of the Junior Prom, especially since something new was added to it. Instead of the usual routine of such an affair, we held a banquet after the dance, and I think that a general opinion of satisfaction was expressed by all who attended. The more serious activities of the class are also due for mention. Seven Juniors were taken into the membership of the National Honor Society this spring, and they were initiated with the same ceremony through which you went. Well, Bob, I guess I've just about run out of talk for the time being. You can expect another letter in a short time, and in the meantime, you'lI write me, won't you? Harry Top Row: P. Kelley, R.

SOPHOMORE CLASS lklay 1, 1945 Dear Lynn, Although you're in the Service now, once you were a Sophomore, and l sup- pose you know many of the members of the Class of y47. Therefore, l'm going to tell you about our activities this year. We began with a bang in a really close election. Before a president could be chosen, we had to vote several times. Finally Audrey Blissctt came out on top. You probably remember Elsie Dragon. Well, she was chosen Vice-President, while Beverly Ferris was named Secretary and Barbara hlerrill, Treasurer. Right away, to try out our new officers, we had to have a Hallowe'en party. It was, of course, held in the gym, with the traditional decorations of corn shocks, pumpkins, and black cats, as well as orange and black paper. As was expected, during the games some over-enthusiastic members of the class overturned the corn shocks, but even that didnlt stop the fun, instead, it added to it. There were stacks Top Rowg D.

Mr. Nestle, acting as chaperon, won a huge rat trap as a prize and immediately proceeded to catch the tail of Miss Ganiard's jacket in it, but, all in all, there were no other serious casualties. During the recent War Bond Drive, Home Room 347, led by Miss Diluaura, bought more stamps and bonds than any other homeroom-over S400 worth! But a Freshman homeroom, with fewer pupils, had a higher percentage, so the Sophomore homeroom humbly bowed to defeat. The other Sophomore homerooms were super- intended by Miss Gillette and Miss Valnia, and they also made an excellent showing in the drive. Well, it's getting late, so I'd better stop. l think you have just about all the news of importance concerning the Sophomores anyway. Thanks for the letter you wrote. From what you said, it sounds as if perhaps you will be able to come home on leave some time in May. Don't forget to come up to school and visit us if and when you do convince your commanding officer that he can do without you for a fe da s. W y Jack Top Row: W. Parsons. D. W. Henry, B. Drew, B.

Certainly we are all proud of you. In your last letter you asked how things were going along in Albion High School these days. Well, pardon 1ny prejudiced outlook-after all, l am a Frosh myself- but l would say that the Freshman Class looks "mighty sharpn this year. The go- getters and energetic people you can find in that class! just to prove 1ny boasting has some justification, listen to this. A few months back, our school had a Bond Drive, with each homeroom assigned a certain quota. All the Freshman homerooms exceeded their quotas, but bliss Ganiardls Freshmen won the five-dollar prize. They arcn't sure to what use the money will be put, but they are seriously thinking of buying a flag. Top Row: A. Bradt, D. Barber, J. Postle, J. Rearner, F. Garrod, S. O'Kane, R. Kurzawski, L.

He was a rolyfpoly little boy when you were in school, but you should see what a smooth fellow he is now. Lowell is our President and is ably assisted by Vice-President Nancy Sturges. The Honorable l'Meatball" Dailey is the secretary and also is in charge of the few pennies that the freshmen hold dear. The Freshmen had quite u party on November 3. Our class has some promising jitterbugs, but they also do pretty well on the square dances. The refreshments were exceptionally goodg lkliss Ball claims we had the best fruit punch she has ever tasted. If you could come back to visit our school for a day, you would realize that the Freshmen this year aren't much different from those of your day. We may still bc what the Seniors like to call timid and green, but things that are green at least show promise of life. Well, it's almost quarter to five now, so I think l'cl better close. Guess where l'vc been writing this-that's right, in Detention! Remember, l'm only a Freshman, and live got a lot to learn. Jin EIGHTI-I GRADE Top Row: T. Sanfilippo, D. Chapman, C. Draper, R.

Neal NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY May 1, 1945 Dear Jean, Of course I know you are terribly busy with your du-ties in the Cadet Nurse Corps, but today I was looking through the secretary's book for the National Honor Society, and I became interested in the articles on the purpose and standards of the society. I thought that you, as a member, would be interested too. I found that the Albion Chapter of the National Honor Society of Secondary Schools was first organized in 1935. The object of the Chapter is to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote worth- while leadership, and to encourage the development of character in pupils of Albion High School. Membership in this chapter is based on scholarship, service, leader- ship, and character. You probably remember that the speeches made during the initiation ceremony in assembly dealt with scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Do you think you will ever be able to forget the day you were initiated? I know my knees were ever so shaky. There were only three Seniors who were old members, so they had quite a problem as to what they should do about electing officers. Now, I don't know whether I should tell you this or not, but as long as you are a member, I guess it will be all right. They went into a huddle with Miss Elson and finally arrived at a solution on how to elect officers. They drew lots! Of course, I know that isn't the way the books say to elect officers, but what else was there to do? It turned out that Elizabeth Nickerson became President, Wilma lean Neal, Vice-President, and Bev- erly Murray, Secretary and Treasurer. I certainly hope the new members get as much satisfaction out of being mem- bers of the National Honor Society as I, and I know you also, have had. I'll write again later to tell you all about the spring initiation ceremonyj ll 1 GLEE CLUB Top Row: H. Bakeman, P. Chorney, R. Nudd, B. Stoney, C. Paganelli, A. Ciarico, M. Filer, G. Wright, J.

You always were "on the beami' in the music department. Well, I wish you and your trombone lots of luck. Our school band has been quite busy this year. You should have heard them blaring forth at the pep assemblies and beating it out on the Four Corners as the climax of the Pep Parade before the Medina game. We have a strong band in more ways than one. Imagine Pat Sacco sturdily blowing sweet notes out of a tuba that is twice as big as he is. The orchestra played at Signor Prize and, of course, will accompany the Seniors as they "process, on Commencement night. If you ever want any professional advice on musical matters, ask our music de- partment. Weive trained one music teacher for Hollywood. Mr. Laurini left for the West Coast in February, and Mr. Schultz, from Rochester, became our capable conductor. Our Clee Club did all right for itself, too. The Christmas Choir gave a splen- did program of carols at the Baptist Church on Christmas Eve and at school on an earlier date. And the operettal It even overcame the jinx of having been presented on Friday, the thirteenth. llere is the plot, briefly. A marchioness, Margaret Marks, masquerades, for reasons of safety, a peasant girl. After some confusion- both on-stage and back-stageeshe promises to marry a young man, Bill Bradley, who had saved her from drowning. Of course they live happily ever after. It really took Kirk Hudson to play the maniac convincingly in i'The Chimes of Normandyv, while Bill Bradley threw himself into the part of making practiced love to Margie Marks. As usual, the entire Clee Club will sing at Commencement. I only hope that you will be able to get home at that time as you have planned, then you can see and hear for yourself what a really fine Music Department we have. ,lack Top Row: W. J. Neal, E.

S.P Well, it's our turn this year, and lim telling you I certainly wouldn't want to be a Iunior this year. Our first meeting was held in the cafeteria quite early in the school year. After some confusion, Pearl Hakes was elected President, Eloise Smith, Vice-President, and Alberta Spinks, Secretary and Treasurer. Eloise moved to Rochester in January, so Patricia Youngs was elected as Vice-President to take her place. In a meeting before Christmas vacation, when Pearl was asked what activities we wanted to have, many suggestions came up. Some one who, like all of us, didn't know how much sleighing weather would be ahead, suggested a sleigh ride. Another suggested a caroling party, so what do you think we did? Yes, we combined them and set the date for December 19. But, because only thirteen people, counting four teachers, turned up that night, we went caroling in cars. Would you like to know what happened when they visited the hospital? Why donit you write to Ianice Barnum and find out? l'm sure she'd be more than glad to tell you. Well, with cold feet and hoarse voices, the party dropped in at Miss Fishers home afterwards for refreshments. We had a "lVlr. Anthonyv program, which was going to be put on in assembly, semi-rehearsed, but-as you already know-the storm came. We had so much school work to catch up on after our sudden vacations which occurred about every other week during the winter that the program was dropped, and it hasn't been men- tioned since. , We were out of school so much that we couldn't accomplish much more than dances in the gym during noon hours, but, as l said before, we are all looking for- ward now to initiating the new members. If you have any fiendish ideas for initia- tion stunts, please send them on to me when you write next. l promise I'll never let the poor Junior girls know who the master-mind was who invented their torture.

A. lVlay 1, 1945 I-li, "Red"l I suppose by now youre used to the "bell bottom trousers, and have traded your jitterbug for a sailor's hornpipe. Sampson must seem pretty far away from Albion High School, but l'm awfully glad to know that you're still interested in getting some school news. You were asking about the F. F. A. Well, you're in a pretty good position to know that the Future Farmers of America arenit headed directly for a future of farming-Uncle Sam will take care of that-but this year they did a really grand job of preparing for the more distant future in farming. You probably know that the boys have a new teacher. Mr. Sherman left early in the first semester, and Mr. New Cthat's no jokcg itys really his nameD took over. Before Mr. Sherman left, the boys bought a War Bond and gave it to him. Mr. New is a fine man, and the fellows like him very much. He certainly keeps them busy with field trips and meetings. And speaking of field trips, that one to Kenneth Drewis farm proved one point-fields can be muddy. Ralph Gavenda is President of the F. F. A. this yearg Gerald Scharping is Vice- Presidentg Lyell Buckner, Secretaryg Dennis Sheelar, Reporter, and Gerald Gibbs holds the money bags. And do they have money! lust before Christmas the boys divided into two teams and sold Christmas trees. They made over S125 on the deal, so a party was in order. With the money made from the sale of the trees, the boys hired an orchestra and had a party. The Home Ec. girls were invited-they fur- nished the refreshments. Nice planning, huh? If the F. F. A. carries on next year as well as this, lim pretty certain that by the time you are home to stay, the Albion countryside will be flourishing. Until then, lots of luck. Tom J. J. C. D. F. S. E. D. R.

Although our football team lost five games and won only one, we stoutly main- tain that we had a good team. There wasn't a game in which the boys didn't give their opponents a tough battle and a run for their money.

Under Coach's expert guidance, the team won nearly half the games that were played. The boys had to work hard, sweating every night from four to six o'c1ock in practice, but they were repaid by becoming one of the outstanding basket- ball teams of the county. The varsity men were last ycar's lettermen, wi-th the ex- ception of a few boys who made the second-five varsity for thc first time this year. 1'11 jot down the scores of the games just in case you are fond of statistics: Opponent Albion Middleport ..........

GIRLS' ATHLETICS May l, 1945 Dear joe, Amidst the feeble moans and groans of gym class, I shall attempt to write. I say "attempt" because for the past two weeks we have done nothing but exercises. Of course, there is marching and drill work in that line. Your little sister is in this period gym class, and she really has a rugged time 'ito the rear marching" and "open ordern-ing down the center of the gym. It's amazing the patience Miss Dayton has. This year has been fun. We started out by playing field hockey. Donlt you remember seeing us out there when you were practicing football? We nearly frozel A few girls still have their faint "battle scars"-hockey sticks are hardl Then volley ball. I always liked that. We had six teams and played off our games during the noon-hour. We thought we were good if we could keep the ball going over the net five times. Shortly, after Christmas, girls' afterfschool and intra-mural basketball started. The girls who went out after school have the advantage over the others because they learned several different techniques both in guarding and making up new plays. We have gone to quite a few 'lplay-daysl' at Batavia, and Albion has been host to Ba- tavia here. The pingepong and badminton tournaments are yet to be played off. Quite a few girls have signed up for them. From what I hear, there is some "good material", so the finals probably will be close. Along in lklay, girls' softball will begin. I stand up to bat, swing wildly at every ball, and then, if l do happen to hit it, I throw my bat so far I'm just automatically put Hour". But we do have a few good batters. When Mary Conroy or Elsie Dragon is up, the poor fielders have to chase practically over to Smithis garage, while the batter nonchalantly walks from base to base. For the second year the Girls' Athletic Association has been organized. The officers-Barbara Irvine, President, Barbara Stoney, Vice-President, and Sally Smith, Secretary and Treasurerfwere elected in the early part of the year. The girls have had parties and have raised money by sponsoring noonfhour dances. Since the time is running short, I shall have to bring this to a close. Let us hear from you whenever it is possible.

Engle AERONEERS May 1, 1945 Dear Darrel, Albion High School is very grateful to you for your help in making the Aeroneers what they are today, the future flyers of America. Under your leader- ship in that first year or so, the members showed their stuff. Now, as then, the boys are striving to better themselves for the flying of tomorrow. The Aces have elected these officers, some of whom I think you'll recognize by name: Creg Engle, Presidentg Chet Karls, Secretary, and Bill Parsons, Treasurer. Under the leadership of Mr. Heintz, the boys are making good progress. They have built glider airplanes, which they tried out in the gymnasium. As a result of the contest Ernest Smith won. There are eleven members in allffour new members were enlisted recently. I need not say much about the initiations, but to quote some remarks from the boys, it was "pretty ruggedv. One boyis comment consisted of just HWhew!H We have in the shop a list of members of former years, such as you, who are now in the Armed Forces. With you first on the list, they are: Navy, Matt Ciszek, Donald Bloom, Earle Filer, and Ceorge Chamberlain, Army-Elliott Snyder and Clark Miller. The Aeroneers have been visited by a representative of the State Department at Albany. He told the boys that, out of the few schools having such organizations, Albion High has the best Aeroneers Club he has ever seen. He has also asked to have the regional meets held here at Albion. All that makes them feel pretty good. We are all proud of the Aeroneers and hope that they will keep up the good work. So to you and to these Hellcats of tomorrow we say, 4'Keep ,Em Flyingli' Dick P.
