THE 1946 ALCEN presented by THE SENIOR CLASS ALFRED-ALMOND CENTRAL SCHOOL Almond, N. Y. Vol. 5FOREWORD The class of ’46 presents the Alcen. We have done our best to collect all of the big, momentous, lasting memories which have occurred during this, our last year at Alfred- Almond. The events which have taken place during this last year are important events in our lives and we shall treasure them dearly through the years. Never forgetting the good spirit, good sportsmanship and fine clean friendships we have made, we sincerely hope that the students of Alfred-Almond will appreciate our efforts.WE HONOR MISS VERA H. PAULSEN In recognition of her friendly counsel, encouragement, and helpful advice through the weeks and months of our final year at Alfred-Almond, we, the Seniors, dedicate the 1946 Alcen. Through her willingness, and capability, we, with less difficulty, have reached the goal of graduation.I. Home Making 2. Industrial Arts 3. CafeteriaLEF 1 IO RIGHI: Mrs. R. Reynolds. Mr. H.

BOARD OF EDUCATION Behind the scenes of activity and backing up our daily routine at Alfred-Almond, is the unlimited supply of strength of the Board of Education. It is this group that forms the foundation on which is built the high standards of our scholastic training. Their cooperation, not only in the local school district but within the school set-up as well, has enabled our school to function with more ease and confidence. We appreciate their hard work, well-arrived-at decisions and helpful advice that have been the foot stones in the path of our success. It is the wisdom and ability of these individuals that has kept the work of our school in the light of higher education. ★ 6PRINCIPAL and SECRETARY ★ During the years that Mr. Gilmore has been with us, we have realized his willing cooperation and leadership. The result of his effort to establish democratic organization, will always he an asset to those who were guided under his counsel. His understanding nature is ever ready to consider every student and lend him a helping hand to the goal of success. His ability to look ahead of our present needs and desires to those of the future, will aid much in the planning of our tomorrow. We appreciate too, the effort of Miss Wheeler in establishing smooth running management in the office. It is with grateful hearts that we ascend to the higher levels of education, remembering the great advantages of our high school environment. I Miss V. Wheeler and Mr. J.

We, in seventh grade, found many nice, and new things due to the combination of the two schools. We had many more advantages, and new friends, too. The size of our class, then, was far different from what it is now. It was much larger—we’ve lost a lot of our classmates since then. We found, too, that for awhile, we were in the same boat as any of the older classes—in discovering new rooms, unknown territories, the cafeteria, the gym, and so forth. During our first and second years at A.A.C.S., we organized for the first time as a class. That is, we chose our own officers, and even elected a Student Council. Too, we planned our first party and dance, under Mr. Willard’s capable leadership. We held the first junior- high formal, a tradition which has been kept up since. At the end of seventh grade, we had a class picnic at Conesus Lake—and we all had a swell time. We went swimming, and some kind gentleman, “for a small consideration,” even gave us a ride in his yacht. It was a nice ending to an eventful year for us. EIGHTH GRADE: This year, too, was pretty full of events, Mainly—part of the class was in a Junior Choir, which sang in Alfred, for a group at the University. We discovered, at Christmas time, how nice it was to have Christmas parties in the cafeteria—nice and convenient. Eighth periods we held dancing classes. Our celebration of Val- entine’s Day that year can be remembered. We had no social studies regents that year, for we were the first group to take the social studies program in junior high which was arranged by Mr. Willard. The state furnished no regents in said subject. During eighth grade, Rupert Belovsky left our ranks. Later, we heard he had joined the Navy, had become an Ensign, and last year, was killed in action in the Invasion. NINTH GRADE: Bill Biehl, the highly esteemed, was chosen as president of our freshman class; for help, Benny Cornelius was the vice-president; Jeannette Pieters the secretary, and Peggy Van Skiver our treasurer. Miss Bacon was our enduring advisor. We put on a Spring Frolic, with the music furnished bv the school Swing Band, headed by Miss Bacon. Prof. Babcock left us that year, to join the Armed Forces, so we gave him a going-away present. At the end of the year we spent a nice Sunday afternoon at Palmer’s pool. Each one of us brought a dish to pass, so there was plenty of good food. We went swimming, played outdoor basketball, ping pong, and al- together had a nice time. SOPHOMORES: We began the year right, by electing Genevieve Greene as president; Benny succeeded himself as vice-presi- dent; Dot I.orrow was our secretary; and Leo Johnson balanced the books for us. Jeannette and Portia McManus, who were co-chairmen of the Junior Red Cross that year, received some gratifying compliments from the Red Cross Organization on their exceptional work. Congratulations were due. During our soph year, the Varsity Club was formed, and we rated Leo, Bill and Fran Schwartz as our members. Fran, Steve (“The Monster”) Saunders, Leo, Bill, and Gerald (“Hammer”) Hanks plowed their way through competition to be on the basketball team. Those were our promising talents. They had Dot Lorrow to cheer for them—she was on the cheerleading squad that year. Too, there was formed at school, a tumbling team, and there were several members, both boys and girls who were on it. We were a pretty good class, we’ll admit. JUNIORS: It was this year when our individuality really began, and the boys stepped into their own. First, we chose our officers—Steve as president, Benny, again as vice-president, “Hammer” as secretary, and Herm Hilsdorf as treasurer. “The Monster,” Fran, Leo—these boys proved their talents on the Varsity, as the team plowed its way to Roch- ester to fall by one point in a thrilling game with Sodus. The year began a month late due to the polio crisis, and no one can say we were sorry. When finally we came to school, we received numerous warnings from our teachers to buckle down and make up for our time missed. It was hard, especially in half-year subjects, but Certainly worth it. Our first action to prove our determination to have a good year was to put on a square dance to raise money for a good orchestra at our Junior Prom, which followed in April. There was behind our capable coaching of Paul Powers, the strong left-arm of Fran Schwartz and a fighting team behind him, consisting of “Hammer,” Leo, Morgan Wirt, and Bill, from our class. This team pushed their way through the league to trim Hammondsport in the semi-finals, then traveling to Rochester to win from C hurchvillc and then a trying 15 inning battle to win the Cup from South Byron. This was our first champion- ship since the school began. YVe got our class rings (at long last!) in April; wore them proudly throughout the rest of school. With that hard-earned square dance money, we held our Junior Prom. The “Campus Cheers” played be- neath the false ceiling we borrowed from Alfred U. Evervone seemed to have a nice time, and we felt it to be a thorough success. Our class held a reception for the seniors and their families, which (we hope!) will be traditional. Near the end of the year, we took a trip to Canandaigua Lake in Leo’s POWERFUL International—Leo driving, on a beautiful sunny day. After spending a delightful afternoon at Roseland, we returned safely (!) to end our Junior year. 21SENIORS: This year began with a bang—nice and quietly. Unobtrusively, plans were made for the Senior square dance —and a success it was, too! We sold coke and some nourishment, and even tried to help Mr. Wirt clean up afterwards! Our next big deed was the play—and how well we’ll remember that—the feud between the cast, the times we went to Hornell with Mr. Wirt to get props, to return them, and the classes we didn’t have. Opening night finally arrived and the manv-times-mumbled-over lines gave an excellent performance. A surprise birthday party was given at Austin’s where our “leading lady” entertained the entire cast that evening. We were fortunate enough to leave in the hands of the oncoming seniors a hard-fought for, and well- earned basketball Cup for which many of our seniors sacrificed much of their time. As for the Yearbook, we ought not forget the fun and hard work we put into it—taking pictures of our ac- tivities, and gathering our wits together to the best of our abilities to do our write-ups, eating dinner, night after night in the cafeteria, working in order to finish the Yearbook in due time, staying after school and not giving up until away after midnight!, when the last sheet was handed in. Upon completing the Alcen the seniors turn their attention to one of the most memorable events of the senior year, the Senior Ball, and later, ('lass Day, Baccalaureate, and lastly GRADUATION.

CLASS OF FORTY-NINE 25JUNIOR HIGH HISTORY The Junior High, composed of the students in the seventh, eighth and ninth grades, is under the main supervision of Mr. Willard. Each class, however, has its own advisor. The purpose of having the ninth grade considered in the Junior high is to introduce the 6:3 3 plan, that is, six years of elementary grades, three years of Junior High and three years of Senior High School. During the last three years, they have celebrated each holiday with appropriate parties. Last year Rose Marie Baker won first place in the annual spelling bee in both school and county and third place over the Buffalo radio station. This year’s winner is Sara Jacobs, with Marion Sutton running as second. M arch 30th the Junior High presented the play, “Happy Landings,” starring the Freshman class. The purpose of the play was to raise funds for their annual Junior High Frolic. EIGHTH GRADE GIRLS Front Row: A. Johnson, J. Wheaton, R. Sheldon, E. Cor- nelius, L. Sutton, P. Button, E. Easton, S.

However, most of them are in Junior High School, which means that the band will not lose many members through graduation. The Hand played for the St. Pat’s and Memorial Day parades, and presented their annual Spring Concert in May. 34JUNIOR CHORUS 1 hr Junior Chorus, which is composed of about forty-six members, has performed several times this year using three part music. Some of their performances have included singing for the Order of Eastern Star in Horncll, and for the Fall Meeting of the Steuben and Elmira Presbytorial in Al- mond. 1 he purpose of the Junior Chorus is to develop ensemble singing and to give the members exper- ience in vocal music before entering the Senior Chorus.

Gayle Harder Portia McManus Martin Gillette MISS VERA PAULSEN Director SENIOR PLAY The Class of ‘46 was the third class at Alfred-Almond to produce the Senior Play. In order to avoid the difficulties caused by the crowded schedule later in the year, it was wisely decided to hold the performance the first half. After careful consideration of several scripts, “WEDDING HELLE” was selected and play books purchased. Tryouts were then held and the cast was chosen. Rehearsals were held nearly every day for one or more periods, and whenever possible, there were afternoon and evening sessions in addition. Oh! Those after-school sessions! . . . Little incidents such as that night, oh, so, so late and cold, when the battery died and the station wagon wouldn’t start. On the other hand, many of us have little memories of ice cream from the cafeteria late one night. (Run everybody!) . . . Such mixed fortunes kept us going when we were ex- hausted from hours of practice. Gradually we mastered our lines, remembered cues, and “got into the feel” of the play. After six weeks of rehearsal came December 8 and opening night. (Last one, too.) Make-up, lights, lines mumbled over and over again, the audience out front behind the curtain, the last seconds slipping away, READY . . . QUIET . . . CURTAIN! The large audience was responsive, laughing heartily when it was supposed to, and the perform- ance went off smoothly. A Hit! M iss Paulsen was Director for the third year, and our success was due to her interest and un- ceasing efforts. Without her there would have been no Senior Play. Among those unsung, unseen workers without which no play is possible, were Miss Hayes, who did the excellent make-up job, and Leo Johnson who turned in a fine job of lighting and sound effects. 38 "You will manifest it by uniting your right hands" "Get off my stomach!" 39 40BASEBALL Last year’s baseball team was the most outstanding one that Alfred-Almond has ever had. They went through the season winning thirteen games and losing only one. They were undefeated in league competition but Hornell was fortunate enough to win the only game lost by a last inning rally. In the playoffs for Allegany County championship they walloped Friendship with a score of 9-2. They won their way to Rochester by heating Hammondsport, the Steuben County champions, by a score of 13-0. The first game in Rochester with South Byron was a very hard one but they pulled through fifteen long innings winning 3-2. I'he next time they had an easier game and won over Churchville 3-1. Winning the championship was something the team had worked hard for all season and an import- ant factor in their winning it was the superior coaching by Coach Paul Powers. He was always working out with the team and considered them as one big family. The team all felt as though they couldn’t have won if it hadn’t been for him. Besides these games there were five of our boys selected for the All-Star game which was held at Wellsville and our Section won.

About thirty-five boys answered the call and Coach Paul Powers started teaching the fundamentals of the game. The season started triumphantly with an impressive win over Scio 8 to 0. Friendship with a vet- eran-filled squad came over to take a hard fought game from a very scrappy home team. Our third game was lost because of inexperience, after leading for three quarters. Richburg Central then came back strong and took command of a thrilling game. After suffering two straight defeats on our home field we were very hungry for a win and Scio was again the victim. Fresh with the win over Scio we traveled to Friendship, the league winners who went through the season undefeated in league play, but lost the playoffs to Nunda, and were beaten out by a small margin. We rounded off the season with an exciting win over Richburg who had beaten us earlier in the season. The team wound up in second place with three wins and three defeats. 43VARSITY BASKETBALL Our ’45-’46 squad answered Coach Paul Powers’ call for candidates on November fir t. About forty boys went through the first week’s drill; among these were about five veterans from last year’s team. After the first week, a team began to loom on the horizon. After three weeks of practice, our first game was scheduled on our home court with neighboring Andover. The first team started the game, with that familiar Alfred-Almond spirit, supported greatly by an excellent cheerleading squad, swamped under our opponents by a large margin. But this was only the beginning, for two more home games followed—in the second we showed our scoring ability against Wayland, a Class-A team, by the terrific drubbing of 79-43. The fourth, and first league game, was fought out on the Bolivar court without the service?- of our beloved Coach, who was undergoing a leg operation, at the St. James Hospital. Nevertheless, with help from A. I Vs Coach Me Lane, we met with success. Our winning streak lasted only for six games, and we took our first spill upon travelling to Wellsville. But the defeat made us all the more determined to come back stronger than before. Our next game was a “must” against Cuba Central to stay on top of the league. This game kept the fans on the edge of their seats, for in the final quarter, we led by only a few points, with three of our first string out on fouls. It was anybody’s game until the whistle, but the tine struggle put up by the substitutes left us in the lead. In our next game, Steve Saunders hit an all-time individual scoring record netting twenty-seven points against Canisteo in a non-league tilt. Once again confident of our winning ability, we set out to An- dover, in another non-league tilt. This time, to take the honors away from hard- fighting Andover Central. The following week we went back into league competi- tion, first meeting Bolivar and then Fill- more. As the week ended, we found our- selves more strongly set in the League for both games were ours. On February seventh, we travelled to Cuba, the third place club in the league. We met a pressing man-for-man defense which upset our high scoring, fast-break and completely knocked us off our feet for our second loss of the season. Thus making our next game with Wellsville on our home court the most important game of the season because an upset would tie up the league-standing with Cuba Central, thus forcing us into a play-off game. Much effort and time was spent upon preparing for this momentous game. The crash came on February fourteenth. Ail of Cuba was on hand, and the gate was a complete sell-out as the boys buckled down to the win they must have. The next day was a joyous one for Alfred-Almond. for the team had completely smothered the Wellsville Lions by a 55-31 decision. Our last regular game of the season was on our home court with the Class-B champions of Steuben County, Canisteo. Our team ran up its greatest score of the current season—a mass total of 82 to their 32. Thus making us the favored team in the B League quarterly finals at Alfred University. The team was anxious to pipy at least one more game before entering the quar- ter finals, thus starting a series of tele- phone calls between Mr. Powers and the coach of F.dison Tech., a double-A school in Rochester. An agreement was finally Ireached and the much publicized game was to be played February twenty-third on our home court; hence cutting out a real job, but giving us the necessary prac tice that we would need if we placed in the finals in Rochester. The game was our third sell-out of the season, and teams and coaches plus many of our own fans came to witness the thrilling battle. As the game proceeded to half-time, we were behind bv three points, thus changing the minds of" many as to what the outcome would be. In the third quarter, our fast- break began to click, and our hearts beat faster, for the thrill of a win against a double-A team began to appear before our eyes. We pushed ourselves all the harder in the final canto to ring out our victory by a six-point margin. The quarter finals were this year held at the University of Alfred and we found ourselves playing Canisteo to decide who would carry the banner to Rochester. The first half found Canisteo fighting back very stiffly despite the two defeats which we had previously presented them in our current season. The score at the half found us leading by but two points but the battle was half over. In the second half, our well-noted fast-break began f) pour on the points thus holding Canisteo to six ] oints in the last half and piling up thirty-four of our own calibre, en- titling us to carry the banner for Alle- gany County. Preparations were made for the trip and we were to play Alexander, the first game of a double-bill at the Fast Main St. Armory, Rochester. N. V. This team came to Rochester with a record of nine- teen straight wins which looked like a very good average. But in our minds and from the unforgettable coaching of Paul Powers, we were determined to go after that Cup which we had so nearly won last year. The final outcome of the great effort put forth by our boys was tin- first defeat of the Alexander team and the highest score ever achieved in a play- off game which amounted to a 50-17 win. The following week found us once more in the Palestra which we had left so sadly last year, this time to face Hilton, the semi-finals’ winner over Sodus High. This team’s ability was proven in its last game; their height far exceeded ours, with the exception of our 6’4” center. Steve Saunders. The game started and with short notice everyone could see that it was to be a fast game. The first quar- ter found us ahead 14-6. In the middle of the second canto was one of the most exciting points of the game, when Hilton came back hard to tie the score at 15 all. But their spurt was short-lived when our fast-break was quick to bring us back into the lead which became ever more pressing, due to the fine cooperation of board play by Fred and Fran Schwartz and also the accurate passes of our fast forwards. Leo Johnson, Frank Snyder, and Morgan Wirt, which combined, proved to be too much for our opposition as the final score read 57-33. Stealing the scoring honors were Steve Saunders and Leo Johnson with 18 apiece, thus ending a perfect season with a Cup to show the exceedinglv strong effort put forth by all. Due credit goes to Ted Gardiner, man- ager, and Mr. Prentice Stillman, business manager, for their exceptionally fine work. The last meeting of all came when a basketball banquet was sponsored by the Varsity Club, inviting both parents and cheerleaders. A splendid evening was had by all during which honors were pre- sented and hopes were given that future teams could continue to hold our name so high.FRONT ROW: K. Snyder, P. Saunders, D. Davis, C.

JUNIOR VARSITY BASKETBALL This year’s Jayvee team was one of the most outstanding teams that Alfred-Almond has ever had considering that it was made up of just Freshmen and Sophomore players. They went right to work and worked out plays, under the supervision of Coach Paul Powers, and got in good condition to go through the season with a good record. The first game, which was a very tough one to start the season, was played with Andover and they won, although our boys put up a good fight. This game can be ex- cused because of lack of experience in actual competition. The game with Andover was a bitter pill to most of the Jayvee squad. Working harder than ever in practices, they came back to take a hard fought and well played game from Wayland which rates as a Class-A school. This won put the old Alfred-Almond fight in the future players of Alfred-Almond teams. The Jayvees w'ere less fortunate than were the varsity players but they ended the season with ten wins and seven defeats. They w-ere also in first place in the Class “B” race. They insured this position by defeating the towering Wellsville five, in a game, that at the start looked as though it was going to be a runaway for the opposition. It was really the most exciting game they played this year and it showed height isn’t the only thing that will pull a winning score.

This season has been an exciting and colorful one in which there has been much hard work and many good times. We’ll surely never forget them. Jeane Kame, captain, had three new girls on the squad—Pat Johnson, who moved up from the Junior Varsity squad, and Janet Wheaton and Rosemary Wheeler, who were newly elected. “Butch Johnson” who later was chosen as our mascot worked very hard with the girls. We arc all looking forward to next year and hoping it will be successful.

Many new cheers were introduced during the season: “In the Basket”, “1 wana B”, “When you re up”, and “J. V. Locomotive”. These went over big with the supporting cheering section, which still favors our “Old Faithfuls”.
