and fine clean friendships we have made, we sincerely hope
that the students of Alfred-Almond will appreciate our

Alfred-Almond, is the unlimited supply of strength of the Board

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

This was the first year that the Alfred and Almond schools were combined, and we, the class of ’46, are
proud to say that we are the first ones to graduate after having been through both junior and senior high
school at A.A.C.S.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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
“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
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.
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
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.

Phyllis Austin ............. President Rose Marie Baker..............Secretary
Jack McMahon ............ Vice President Willard Sutton................. Treasurer
This year the Student Council sponsored the Halloween Parade for the grades, the Junior
Red Cross drive and the dances after the Basketball games. Also they have sponsored a full length
movie each month.
In the Spring the Council has charge of Moving Up Day, and at this time award the school Crest.
The Student Council, at all times, with the help and cooperation of the entire school, bases its de-
cisions on democratic thinking.
The orchestra consists of twenty-five instruments, most of which arc strings. Some members of the
Junior Band are participating in this organization to further their experience in playing. They expect
to play in the Spring Concert this year, for the first time. Last year they made their first public ap-
pearance at Commencement and they will again appear this June.
This year’s choir had an excellent turnout of 66 members. Christmas music was learned, hut the
program was cancelled because of sickness. r
On February 18, the choir gave a program before the Fortnightly Club in Hornell. Ibis was
followed by a party at school, on February 21 with the Methodist Choir.
The School and Methodist choirs put on an Easter program in Hornell on Palm Sunday Eve-
ning in the Park Methodist Church.
The Choir appreciates Mr. Austin’s line leadership. His fun-loving ambition has made Senior
Choir an activity which will long he remembered.

The Senior Hand this year has a total of 21 members, who have played less than three years on
their instruments. 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.
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-
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.

MISS VERA PAULSEN
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.
"You will manifest it by uniting your right hands"
"Get off my stomach!"
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.

Alfred-A1 monel Central School for the first time in four years entered in the soccer league of Al-
legany County. 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.
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
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
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
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-
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. Rigby, 1). Martin, W. Reid, V. Wirt. BACK ROW:

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
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.

Beat Hilton!—This was our cry at Rochester where we were victorious over Hilton. 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.

What a J. V. team, the J. V.’s of 1945-46! Will we ever forget the thrill of these preliminary
games, especially the Edison Tech? We cheered until we could hardly speak. They were terrific!
Our J. V. cheerleading squad, under the leadership of Charlotte Cornelius, a veteran, included
“Liz” Ann Orinsby, also an old timer, and two new cheerleaders, Doris Reynolds and Shirley Champlin.
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”.
