"Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal" - THOMAS MOORE
For her many years of service to Albion High School, she will always be remem-
bered. The years were long and happy ones, although she had more than her share
of burdens. She deeply loved her subject and taught it well. Many are the students
who passed a difficult Latin regents because of her help and guidance.
Yes, we, the students and teachers of Albion High School, wish to pay tribute
to Miss Jessie Valnia for her constant and devoted service to the school and the
subject she loved so well.
THE BIG BRASS
SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS
Slips appear!! Piggy banks disappear!! The officers, President, George LaMont,
Vice President, Nancy Spierdowis, Secretary, Maralee Juliana, Treasurer, David
Van Norman and the whole gang in 238 agree that itls all a barrel of fun. Through
our class advisers, Mr. Anderson and Mrs. Landfear and our efficient rules and
student cooperation, our homeroom operated quite smoothly.
Our first activity was the senior play. Tryouts, more tryouts, practice and then
on December 5, 1952 "The Moon Makes Three" was a success. Our class did a fine
job and feel that we were well represented by the cast. Funds reached a new low
mark and we worked on the football stand to enrich our treasury.
The whole school was surprised in November when the seniors appeared in
their best bib-and-tuck for the senior tea. Besides all the work setting tables and
making punch and coffee by the gallon, we even got a day off from English class.
ln spite of the fact that the officers shook hands more this day than ever before,
everyone had a fine time. Our Christmas party this year was a little hurried because
many seniors were working in Newberryys to supplement their Christmas money.
After our tureen supper, we all had a wonderful time, especially Jeanna who was
privileged enough to sit on Santa's lap. The year wouldn't have been complete
without the usual trips to the Medina skating rink. We should have brought a
cushion engraved with "especially for you." It would have come in handy for
On February 17, 1953 we took a slightly longer trip to Rochester to see the musi-
cal comedy, "Cuys and Dollsf' Richard Ferris's big cigar wasn't a very big hit in
the lobby of the Auditorium, especially for the women. Of course seniors always
have to eat! We had dinner in Rochester and before we invaded Albion, we stopped
for a snack. All the way home we were giving three cheers for Allis Chalmers -
"Hurrah! Hurrah! 1-1urrah!'i These trips depleted our treasury considerably but we
all agreed it was well worth it.
The class of '53 had representatives in cheerleading, girls' sports, various boys'
sports, band, glee club, operetta, and various clubs.
Senior pictures, calling cards, graduation announcements, and finally class day
and commencement. Summing up the year in one word, it's been

JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS
S. Miller, M. Hicks, S. Brownell
This year's junior Class was both capable and versatile. Try out for cheer-
leading? Sure, Sue Sands became a varsity cheerleaderg Ann Finney and Joyce
Coloney were on the V. squad. Athletics? Of course! The junior Class was
well represented in wrestling, track, football, basketball, and baseball. Money?
Perhaps our greatest project in which each junior took part was the magazine cam-
paign in which we sold almost S2300 worth of periodicals. With some of our
earnings we enjoyed a trip to Buffalo to see the lee Follies. We have had two skating
parties and we enjoyed an ice cream and cake party held in the gym. Great success?
We feel that our success was brought about by the efforts of our officers, Elizabeth
Perry. Presidentg Marcia Hicks, Vice-President, Sydne Brownell, Secretary, and
Shirley Miller, Treasurer. Which junior ring do you want? Oh, I wonder who'll
speak in Signor Prize? What, you made National Honor Society! Where'll I ever
get 1000 words for that essay? How will l ever pass that regents exam? Our
advisers, Mrs. Schnitzer, Mrs. Harrigan, and Miss Britton just tell us to be confident.
Coming to the end - Regents - Making the daisy chain - Packing up and
moving to 238.
IN MEMORY OF DAVID DAWSON
"So we stand silent, having lost so soon
The best of us, the high and silver flute."
These words are a fitting tribute to the memory of a
classmate whose fine character and kind deeds will long
be remembered in the halls of Albion High.

SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS
A. Kuhn, M. Durront
'AAnd the vote goes up and up and up!" And as the results come in, we find the
Sophomore Class President is . . . Arnold . . . Creally JakeD Kuhn!! From that point
on the girls went "up and up!" as Arlene Ciarrizzo became Vice-President and Mar-
jorie Durrant became Secretary-Treasurer.
A'Boom, Boomlv went the Class of 1955 as it began its series of activities with a
somewhat traditional skating party on November 26, and again on March 10. These
parties included our best times with everything from spills to the bus ride home.
We rate an "A" for representation in activities this year. Chuckie Plummer,
George Hildreth and Dick Griffin did quite well for themselves on the Varsity bas-
ketball squad. Several boys made the V. basketball team, while others played on
Albionls football and baseball squads. "Herb" Steele set a new V. basketball
scoring record by setting up 29 points in one game. The girls shone in intramurals,
besides having Barb Restivo and Arlene Ciarrizzo cheering for the Vfs. Sopho-
more boys and girls participated in both Clee Club and Band. Two Sophomores,
Mae Saeva and Joe Sacco had leads in the spring operetta, "Chimes of Normandy."
Robert Kubica can be identified by her baton with which she led the band down the
field at many football games.
Weire almost past the middle now and next year we will be upper classmen.

FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS
C. Archbald, H. Babcock, I. Crawshow
One down and three to gol That's our class standing at A. H. S. We got to
first base when Constance Archbald became President, Harold Babcock, Vice Presi-
dent, and Ida Crawshaw, Secretary-Treasurer.
On November 1, 1952 and March 9, 1953, we were safe at second and the
class attended skating parties in Medina. Spills, aching feet, blisters, and a good timel
As we rounded another base, both boys and girls took an active part in the
noon hour intra-mural program. Although we had no representation on either
cheerleading squad, several girls participated in the tryouts. If you don't succeed,
try, try, again. That's our motto.
We are extremely proud to have had a member of the freshman class, Thomas
Burgio, on the Varsity football squad. The Iunior Varsity squad, supported mostly
by freshmen, wound up the season undefeated.
Several freshman boys - Carlton Barclift, Frederick Parker, Lee Brooks. Matt
Pecorclla, Harold Babcock, and William Narburgh - participated in Junior Varsity
We also have musical notes in our class, too. A number of freshmen were
chosen for band and glee club. Christmas Choir and the chorus of the operetta,
"Chimes of Normandy," wouldn't have been complete without the freshmen.
We're almost to home plate now as the year draws to a close. We've had fun
and a lot of memories will linger. We are looking forward to next year as sophomores
and two down and two to go.
We owe a great deal of our accomplishments to Miss Ball, Miss Beeman, Mr.
Campbell, and Mr. Monacelli.

"Money - Money - Money - Lack of it is driving me crazy" - sighs Enid Blake,
head of Promotion Staff. Enid and her staff overcame that problem through the
Variety Show, Friday movies, the Cake Walk, the Spring Dance.
Delores Vagg, Co-Chairman of the Advertising Staff became slightly annoyed
with the other Co-Chairman Richard Ferris, because he was always leaving his
master list in his locker when a meeting was called. These two and their staff did
make a great advancement in Chevron advertising though, by perking up the ads
"Don't you think you could have your articles in by next Friday, then?,' -A asks
Fran Pecorella, head of the Literary Staff, as she tries to meet the deadline. The
write-ups were finally handed in and all enjoyed reading them.
"Psstl Psstl What's that word - Now why would anyone write around a
piece of paper?" wonders Marlene Weale, head of the Typing Staff. The deciphering
really didn't take too long.
"One-two-three-four - Money, Money dropping, dropping, hear the pennies
fall," chants Nancy Spierdowis, laboring hard over her task as Circulation Manager.
This year the Circulation Staff promoted a contest to see which homeroom could get
in the most money every week. It turned out to be quite successful.
Although the days of taking pictures were hectic and the editors were pestered
by students who wanted to know the theme and the senior catalogue, the deadlines
were met. The Chevron Staff hopes it has pleased the Studnts of A. H. S. with its
larger, earlier published yearbook.

TIME: IO music-filled months of ,52 and '53
SETTING: A. H. S.
ACT I - Septenrloer to January
Scene l - Across the gridiron comes the stirring music of a big brass band.
Commands ring out in the crisp fall air and the AHS marching band comes swinging
down the field as high-stepping majorettes strut and twirl in countermarches and
flank movements. Football is in the air and the band answers the crowdis enthusiasm
by putting on a great show.
Scene 2 - A rainy weekend in November rolls around and four AHS bandsmcn
arc off to Ncwfane for a Sectional All-State Festival. Playing in a 100-piece concert
band thrills the Albion members: Pauline Hicks, Robert DeCarlo, George LaMont.
and Dykman Poland.
ACT ll - january to june
Scene l - The annual spring music festival at Barker acts as an incentive to
make the band members get down to hard work. They succeed in polishing five
selections and enter competition at the festival. Some also compete in solo work.
Scene 2. - Weeks of 8:20 rehearsals on dreary Thursday mornings pay off when
it comes to presenting a pop concert in addition to a regular spring presentation of
music. The director, Mr. Sherman, takes a terrific beating while making the events
successful, but manages to emerge unscathed and ready to go again.
Scene 3 - The year climaxes as the band plays the strains to which the seniors
march down the aisle to the graduation exercises.
"Heaven be with mel" "Stay where you are!" "And who talks so freely of
Serpolette?" "ls it a ghost I see?,' "Tell Bell, Ding Dong, Ding Dong". "What
means this noise and clatter?"
No member of the "Chimes of Normandy" operetta cast or, we hope, the
audience, will ever forget the performance of Mae Saeva as Germaine, lim Harmon
as de Corneville, Ann Finney as Serpolette, joe Sacco as Grenicheaux, Dave
Van Norman as Caspard, and Luciano Spalla as the Bailli. Syclne Brownell, as
Manette, and Dixie Dragon, as Gertrude, added a little extra life to the story with
their gossip and dancing, while the chorus did the rest.
The combined boys, and girls' glee clubs, in addition to the fun at operetta re-
hearsals, also enjoyed presenting a concert of Christmas music, and singing at the
graduation exercises. The boys were greatly outnumbered by the girls, however,
tha? had little effect on the quality of the music and the boys didn't seem to mind
at a l.
Two members of the chorus, Harmon and Van Norman, represented A. H. S.
at the All-State sectional at Newfane. Later, the two boys, plus Sacco, were fortu-
nate to be members of the chorus, made up of students from all over the state, which
sang in Klcinhans Music Hall in Buffalo. The girls lost out on making either trip,
but hope to be accepted in future years.
Everything undertaken by the glee clubs was considered a success, for Mrs.
Trumble, director of the chorus, had again perfected a choral group worthy of Albion
High School's pride.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
The meeting is called to order by the president of the Albion Chapter of the
National Honor Society, David Van Norman. Roll call is taken and the minutes
of the previous meeting are read by Maralee Juliana, Secretary. Treasurer, Robert
Hannan, reports our financial standing and then the group is off on a lively dis-
cussion of committee reports and old and new business. It is reported that the
Society is still in charge of noon duty in the front hall each day. The members also
monitor the halls each night at the close of school and help new students with
The meetings are held at the homes of the members. The date for the next
meeting is set and Dixie Dragon, Vice President, oliers to have it at her home.
Frances Pecorella brings up the subject of the new members who will be elected
to National Honor Society in the Spring. It is suggested, by Nancy Spierdowis, that
we begin, at once, making plans for the initiation of the new members and the tea
for teachers, parents, and members that will follow. Everyone agrees and after fur-
ther discussion, and a peek at the clock, David calls for a motion of adjournment.
The members of the junior and Senior Classes who were elected new members
of the National Honor Society in the Spring are: Robert DeCarlo, Shirley Gillette,
George LaMont, Norman Pieniaszek, Donald Sadowski, Marlene Weale, Constance
Bell, Sydne Brownell, Joyce Coloney, David Dawson, Mary jackson, and Elizabeth
FUTURE FARMERS OF AMERICA
Initiation time comes. Everyone likes it except the Freshmen and several upper
classmen, but it's all in fun and everybody has a good time to go along with the
delicious refreshments at the end. At present we have 41 active members in our
local chapter, including our able officers, President, Luciano Spalla, Vice-President,
Dave Dawson, Secretary, Ronald Harling, Treasurer, George LaMont, Reporter,
Richard Ferris, and Watch Dog, Danny Snell.
The FFA is one, if not the most active of all clubs at Albion High. Under the
capable supervision of Mr. New, the FFA has many traditional activities but still
undertakes many new ones each year. We raised money by working for Mr. New
and then transferring the money into the treasury. We also won all four individual
places in the tomato division of the New York State Vegetable Canners Contest which
netted us 57500.
Our other activities included field trips, a father and son banquet, a 2-day trip
to the Farm and Home Week Convention at Cornell, basketball games, and the
nomination of George LaMont for the Empire Farmer Award. Losh Spalla won top
honors in local, county, regional and zone speaking contests. The fruit judging team
won a place at the Horticultural Show in Rochester.
As our activities come to an end, we are planning an annual picnic at Crystal
Beach. We really do a lot of hard work along with our fun.

"All right!! One, two, three, playf, Mr.
Sherman director bellows as his big arms start
the Junior Band off.
The band consists of about 40 members.
Twice a week, the participants, who are mostly
sixth, seventh, and eighth graders, meet for re-
hearsals. After the seniors leave in June, the
Junior Band people who have enough knowledge
of their instruments will fill in the vacancies.
The Junior Band participates in the annual
Spring Concert. The members of the band
choose three or four selections and prepare them

amazing ability to play the latest hit tunes and
the ever popular ballads.
Who can resist Keith Downey's pleasing
piano playing, the haunting melodies of Dyke
Poland, Bob Hoot, and Mr. Sherman, the mel-
low trombone playing of Ken Whiting, Don
Joslyn, and Jim Harmon, and the soothing
strains on the saxophone by Joe Sacco, Bob De-
Carlo, Marv Sayles, and Don Steele. Last but
not least, the tantalizing rhythm of Dick "The

Even though we see birds - more birds, in
the A. H. S. auditorium, the main objective of
the Dramatic Club this year is to further the
dramatic ability of its members. Under the very
capable leadership of Mr. Lynch, it has at-
tempted to learn and have fun at the same time.
The reading and discussion of plays has occupied
the club's hours and given us some good and
practical ideas concerning the state.
The Dramatic Club chose their leaders of
1952 and 1953 at the beginning of the club
program year. Maralee Juliana was elected
President, Aprille DeBbouwt, Vice-President,
Ioan Cunningham, Secretary, and Karl Kling-
enberger, Treasurer. We presented "Life of the
Party." The future plans include three one-act
plays, "Summons of Sariel", "She Was Only a
Farmer's Daughter", and "Minor Miracle", for
an evening performance skits, and a theatre party
at the Rochester Arena Theatre.
We've had a lot of fun this past year, and
we hope to have accomplishments - more accom-
plishments in the coming year.

Case". Some poor misguided athlete is going to be tried by the Sportsmanship Coun-

not fit into the program of a real high school athlete or cheerleader. The Sportsman-
ship Council hopes to show boys and girls in our high school how much they will
profit hy following the few but necessary rules of good sportsmanship.
"Wliat you-all think you're goin' s'fast?" Jim Hannon's authoritative voice rings
clear as he puts into effect the laws of the Traffic and Safety Council. Cars of
Albion High students must be registered and drivers must have permits to be allowed
to drive to school. As the council expands, its duties will become larger. It will
conduct fire drills in the building as well as traffic on the school campus.
"I-Ielp! Ah-h-h-h!" screams Dixie Dragon, head of the Extra-Curricular and
Awards Council, as the Sophomores pounce on her. This Council, heading the club
program is also using a new system for awards called the point system. The Sopho-
mores apparently didn't want to be the guinea pigs for the testing of this new system,
so it is starting with the Freshmen only. Students are awarded points for not only
participation in sports but also for class averages and honors, such as class officer.
If enough credits are earned, a school letter is awarded.
These three organizations are the new sub-councils of the Student Council.

The William Tell Overture started - the lights were lowered - the curtain
opened. A spry white-haired Creally corn starchD lady limps across the stage shout-
ing "It's time for Superboyf,
After weeks of practice CPD on December 5, 1952, "The Moon Makes Three",
under the direction of Mr. Lynch, had started. And, we thought tryouts and re-
hearsals were exciting!
"I was the only girl who could split," "It's utterly utter!", "QUIE.T". These
are familiar to the cast but Freddie's cute legs, Marsy's pigtails, and Nickie's Indian
dance will never be forgotten. Weddings are nerve wracking, especially for the
groom, but not many bridesmaids carry a size ten shoe.
Rehearsals, left-over punch from the Senior Tea, Writing on the scenery, butter-
flies in the stomach, and the applause are all behind us. But we still say "Yes,
You and Me and the Moon makes three."

Early Stages Waiting to Cut the Wedding Coke
What Are You Wearing To The Masquerade?" Bridal Party
A cool breeze in the air - the familiar cheers of an excited crowd and cheering
section - Coach Spierdowis yelling instructions from the sidelines - these are but
a few of the memories that will cling to remind us of another football season gone by.
Spirits were high and injuries few except for Vinnie lVlartina's sprained ankle and
Don 1oslyn's pulled shoulder muscle.
The team got off to a good start by tying the first two games: a 6 to 6 tic with
Brockport and a 7 to 7 tie with Williamsville. After dropping the next game to
Clarence by a score of 13 to O, we rallied to beat LeRoy 7 to 6 - the first time a
LeRoy team has been beaten by Albion on their own field since 1941. After LeRoy
came Depew, whom we beat 21 to 63 then we dropped the next one to Akron 21 to 7.
The next game was the devastating victory over Perry 55 to 7 Cthe highest score an
Albion team has ever reached.D The final game ended this great season by retaining
the Orleans County Championship and crushing the Medina eleven 21 to 6.
Much credit goes to Coach Spierdowis, John Ioy and our two Co-Captains,
Ozzie Francis and Normie Pieniaszek. Next year the team will miss these Senior
boys: David Vagg, James Harmon, Ozzie Frances, Norm Pieniaszek, Vinnie Martina,
Loyd Buck, Erwin Allen, Ceorge LaMont, John Klopp, and a junior, Don Brace.
l1ere's hoping next year's team has a successful season.

Although it ended the season with a record of 5 wins and 10 losses, the 1952.-1953
varsity squad proved to be a hustling, high-scoring aggregation.
The boys fared much better on their home court, winning 5 and losing 2, than
on the road, where they dropped 8 straight games.
ln league competition, they split the two game series with Medina and LeRoy,
missing a trip to the sectionals as the result of a heart-breaking 67-66 loss to Medina
in the final game of a playoff, resulting from a three-way tie for league leadership.
Brace, Hannan, Pawlaczyk, Pieniaszek, and Sadowski played their final game
for the Purple and White.
Highlights of the season: Aches and pains from early season exercises - record-
breaking 81 points against Medina - Normie's free haircut - Dick Griffin's game
winning basket in the overtime period against Oakfield - the Lions ,Club banquet -
lack Gaze's driving jump shots in practice.

One fine spring afternoon at A. H. S., smiles and bright chatter flooded the
hall outside senior homeroom. They came as a result of beaming Coach Biordi's
showing of the recently arrived, new baseball uniforms.
Soon after, the baseball squad of '53 proudly donned the new uniforms and
began practice. The team, formed around a nucleus of eight returning lettermen
including Klopp, Klingenberger, Sadowski, Harmon, Penesack, Pieniaszek, Pawlaczyk
and Hannan, looked forward to another successful season. They intended to work
hard to keep up with the '52 record of ll wins and 3 losses, the Genesee-Orleans
league championship, and the sectional finals in Red Wing Stadium.
Although the team had lost a good and experienced catcher, Butch Radzinski,
they placed their faith in Karl Klingenbergerls attempt to learn the catching skill.
Indeed, all students were fill with the baseball spirit this spring. "Take Me Out
to the Ball Camel' again became the most popular tune of the day.

SPRING!!! - lt's time for Coach Spierdowis to begin working with his speedy
athletes. The 1952 version of the A. H. S. track team had a highly successful
season, being undefeated in most meets. Many of last year's track men advanced to
the sectionals where they made creditable showings. The outlook for this year
is very hopeful, respite the fact that there are only 7 returning lettermen from last
yearis championship squad. The lettermen are Brace, Miller, Hildreth, johnson,
Vagg, Gaze, and Spalla.
Our track teams in the past have always given a good account of themselves
and we are sure they shall continue. So, to the members of the track team, the
students of A. fl. S. wish speed and strength.
Coach predicts Brace will be slower this year. Reason --
Ile won't have Paganelli chasing him.
Spalla predicts he will throw the shot an easy 50 feet this
year - left handed.
Dick Miller predicts that only one runner will beat him in
the mile event - a distance runner.
The first meet of the 1953 season is with Corfu at Corfu on Wediiesday, May
6. followed by Holley at Albion on May 9.

Veteran grunt and groaners under Co-Captains Don Vagg and John Klopp
initiated a crop of new muscle benders and then proceeded to lead the 1953 Wrestling
Team on to a very successful season. Letter winners or those who have the equivalent
in points are Ed Tower, Dick Miller, Loren Johnson, Leland Johnson, Don Vagg,
John Klopp, Frank Babcock, Vinnie Martina, Jerome Makowski and Jerry Wahl.
Winning seven matches before tasting defeat, the team's record to date is ten
victories and only one loss. The team is undefeated in league com tition. The
veteran nucleus of this year's team was John Klopp, Jerome Makowslfii Don Vagg,
Dick Miller and Loren Johnson. John Klopp, one of the best wrestlers A. H. S. has
seen in a long time, is still undefeated this year.
What boys would ever practice volleyball in the Batavia High School shower
rooms besides Lowman, Francis, Brust, Buck, Stymus, Harmon, Harrison, Dawson,
Piazza, LaMont, and DeCarlo?
The Albion volleyball team just made it to Batavia in Ozzie's Ford and Herbie's
Packard. In fact, the probably got there in 5 or 10 minutes. They were scheduled
to play three games, ut they were defeated in the first two 15 to 8 and 15 to 6.
Batavia seemed to stick to that number 15.
The guys were really "on the ballv and even though their success was limited,
the fun they had balanced the season.
A. H. S. sports fans were impressed with the fine showings made by the Junior
Varsity football and basketball teams. The football squad finished the season un-
defeated. The basketball squad had more hard luck, but is sure to shape up to make
an excellent Varsity team in the future.

GI RLS' ATHLETICS
After the addition of a bouncing baby boy, the girls of Albion High School much
regretted the absence of Mrs. Biordi as physical educational director. Even though
we can't remember our numbers at roll call and are somewhat crowded in the lockers,
our athletic curriculum has been ably supervised by Miss janet Hatch.
On September 26, 1952 several girls participated in cheerleading tryouts. leana
Monacelli, Joyce Coloney, Ann Finney, Arlene Giarrizzo, Barbara Restivo, Delores
Vagg, and Eleanor Minckley were named for the junior Varsity squad. Six seniors,
Nancy Spierdowis, Dixie Dragon, Claire Clement, Patricia Ayrault, Ann Wolcott,
and Maralee luliana made up the Varsity squad with a junior, Sue Sands, as
The first semester intra-mural program included both field hockey and soccer.
Two field hockey teams and four soccer teams were confronted with the problem
of "sticks" and black and blue marks.
Next on the sport's schedule was volleyball, which was played during gym
periods and noon hours. Of the thirteen volleyball teams, the juniors took the honors.
At the end of the season an all star team was chosen.
Basketball then appeared on the agenda. This activity included twelve intra-
mural teams. A few unsuccessful attempts were made to engage in inter-scholastic
