For wherever there is music in life, there must he harmony. It is to the music that has so enriched our lives at Albion High School that the Chevron of 1953 raises its baton.

IN MEIVIORIAIVI A Tribute "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 Z? M Q12 My 14 SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS SENIOR CLASS 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 Charley. 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 HTREMENDOUSH D. VonNormon, G. LaMont, N.

Miller, M. Hicks, S. Brownell JUNIOR CLASS 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. Top Rowi J. 3rd Row: K. 2nd Row: P. lst Row: G.

Durront SOPHOMORE CLASS '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. my 28 SOPHDMORE CLASS Top Raw: A. Kuhn, C. Bokman, L. Kelley, C. Jacobs, D. Webster, A. Foote G. Wahl C. Prawel D.

Crawshow FRESHIVIAN CLASS 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 basketball. 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. ao E 3 FRESH MAN CLASS Top Row: P. Leigh, S. Monagan, A. D'Arnico, R. Bergman, R. Daniels, L.

"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 with photographs. "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. EDITORIAL STAFF Top Row: R. Hannon, D. Van Norman, L. Spalla lst Row: D.

VVhen "l lerkyu was well and ahle again, the Student Council formed new come mittees and councils. Dixie Dragon was appointed chairman of the Extra-Curricular and Awards Council and lim llaimon was appointed head of the Traffic and Safety Council. Other committees included election, sportsmanship, puhlicity, assemhly. orientation and constitution. They worked hard to improve our school. As the year progressed, we entertained the Medina Student Council officers and put in a new seating arrangement into elfect to keep the seniors from filihustering. Our Feet were weary as we marked from homeroom to homeroom selling lucky charms and hanners. Even lXli'. lffkmico didnt know if we were selling rahhit leer or rahhit's ioots.

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. A, .2 GLEE CLUB "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. Top Row: M.

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 their lockers. 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 Perry. Q44 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. Top Rowi J. Henderson, R. Trolley, E. Tower, R.

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.

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 Rainbow Ferris and his drums. Also, Faye Hatch, Jack Gaze, and Dave Wolfe have very capably filled in when members of the Band have been absent. l Top Row: Adviser O. Rickey, C. London, B. Rosenblum M. Levondowski, J. Kedinq, W.

Noon movies, showing pictures for History and English classes as well as other organizations such as the Student Council or the Chevron staff, is just one of the functions of the Audio-Visual Club. Under the supervision of Mr. Rickey, the members learn not onl how to operate the ma- chines but they also obtain a clear understand- ing of the entire process of making motion pictures. At the beginning of the school year, the members elected officers: President, Don Sadow- ski, Vice-President, Mary Lou Levandowskig and Secretary, Mary Staines. Although the machines don't always operate in the desired fashion, the club considers this a very successful ear and the students of A. H. S. thank them Kar the enjoyment they have brought.

Since Decem- ber the editors and reporters from grades 6-12 have slaved away in order that all school events and gossip could appear in bi-monthly editions. The paper was highlighted with feature articles on outstanding students, for which con- fidential information was gotten from pumping Mrs. Hannan to conducting surveys. The chemistry students offered to help haggard Mr. Monacelli set type until they heard they would have to start at quarter to 4 on Fri- day morning. The paper continued successfully however, and was read and enjoyed by the students. 47Q 1 Standing: B. Janus, H. Ireland, C. McKenna, D. Sullivan, G. Kettle, E. Tower, B. Bielinski, C. Parker, S.

Under the leadership of President, Geraldine Kettleg Vice President, Colon Towerg Secretary, Anna Telovskyg and Treasurer, Margot McKenna, we have had a lot of fun and have completed some interesting and entertaining projects. Lois McKenna and Wil- liam Burgio, as Sergeants-at-Arms, have worked very hard this year. As part of our activities, we conducted a sur- vey to find a part-time employment for Albion school students. Later on, a lecture for our enjoyment, was given by Mr. Miller on "Monroe Calculating Machines." The club members entertained with a buffet supper and a movie on "The Duties of a Secretary" at a joint meet- ing with the Medina Commercial Club.

Under the supervision of Mr. Spierdowis, the members of the club have completed what they consider a very successful year. Because of very busy schedules, the members have not elected officers for the year, but enjoyed joint meetings with the Hi-Y, as well as other numerous activities. To the members of the Varsity Club, the students of A. H. S. extend their "congratula- tionsv for the fine work they have done in keep- ing our school one with sportsmanlike traditions. All the students who are involved in athletics, are looking forward to the annual Awards Ban- quet sponsored by the Varsity Club. At the ban- quet, not only are the letters given out, but the Babe Ruth Sportsmanship Awards are presented to the senior boy and girl who best exemplify the characteristics of good sportsmen. These awards prove that A. I-l. S. can lose a game, and not be defeated. Top Row: H. Lowman, F. Babcock, J. Stark, H. Brust, L. Buck, D. Poland, G. Hildreth, D. Pawlawczyk, K. Kling- enberger, J.

A. Ducking, diving, and dipping, they're all having a wonderful time. Can't you just see them? But wait, what's missing from this picture? Oh yes - SPLASH!! It's Mr. Schroeder, the boys' adviser, jumping right into the fun as usual. The Hi-Y members are not always water- logged, however. The boys also enjoy getting together with the many girls of the Varsity Club for joint fun nights in the gym. This club certainly does add "zip" to the social life of A. H. S., besides symbolizing its high standards of sportsmanship and cleanliness. Top Row: A. Fitch, J. Gaze, J. Sacco, L. Spalla, J. Bur- roughs, E. Blake, J. Cunningham, B. Rosenblum, E. Tower, J.

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. 49 KIA 'HO TRAFFIC AND SAFETY COUNCIL Standing: Advusor H, Hopkins, D.

Giarizzo SPECIAL COUNCILS 'AOrderl Order!" cries Mr. Campbell, head of the Sportsmanship Council. "First Case". Some poor misguided athlete is going to be tried by the Sportsmanship Coun- cil because he has violated one of the laws set up to enforce good sportsmanship and clean living in Albion High School. Smoking, drinking, and keeping late hours do 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. 5 13,252 SENIOR PLAY "THE MOON MAKES THREE" by Aurond Harris CAST OF CHARACTERS Grandma Jackson - Iohn Henry Bailey Marsue Bailey CMarsyD Eleanor Bailey Ann Bailey - Nickie Barlow Eve Wilson - Frank Hall - Mrs. Bailey - Freddie Smith - Terry Randolph Wendel Wilcox - FRANCES PECORELLA JOHN Durcmzn - DIXIE DRAGON - ENID BLAKE - DELORES VAGG NORMAN PIENIASZEK - ANN WoLcoTr - DON VAGG NANCY SPIERDOWIS GEORGE LAMONT - JIM HARMON DAVID VANNORMAN jenny May West - - MARY Lou TRUMBLE Minetta Miller - - MARALEE JULIANA Roger Armstrong - - HERBERT LOWMAN The William Tell Overture started - the lights were lowered - the curtain opened.

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." Grandma Grows Grey Till I Waltz Again With You Early Stages Waiting to Cut the Wedding Coke What Are You Wearing To The Masquerade?" Bridal Party I' , i VICTORY MARCH 5 4. Af 5 Z. 5 ii 2 fi Wai 11 122 FOOTBALL 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. 1952 FOOTBALL SCHEDULE AND SCORES Brockport 6 ..........

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.

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. Bock Row: D. Vogg, N. Pienioszek, D. Brace, Coach Spierdowis Front Row: J, Dennisron, G. Froncis, L. Johnson, G. LoMont TRACK 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. PRE-SEASON PREDICTIONS: 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. 59 14,1 JUNIOR VARSITY FOOTBALL Top Row: Mr. Campbell, W. Dale, P. Ciorico, J.

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. VARSITY CHEERLEADERS S Sonds, A. Wolcott, D. Dragon, C. Clement N. Spierdowis, M. Juliana, P. Ayrault 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 alternate. 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 basketball games. For a while, clothing seemed to be disappearing and appearing in the locker rooms. "Showers, here I comef' if you had a birthday on a gym day. Ask Enid and Fran, they know! At present, we're trying to learn the new dance steps. When weather permits, we will begin our softball schedule. Sore muscles, kicks, net balls, over-guarding. and striking out. Accomplishments are not too outstanding, but the fun excelled.
