Still thou shalt ever be
Fairest ou land and sea

Our dear friend and patron,
as an appreciation of her work in our behalf,
We, the 'Signum Board for the Senior Glass
dedicate this book.
1 You have before you the annual publication of the Class of
1919, the 4'Signuin," the sign of the seal. Each year a Year Book
is issued by the Senior Class as a record of its last year in E. F. A,
This year it has been the purpose of the editors to present a book
which will be a history of the year not only for the Senior Class
but also for every person in any way connected with the Academy.
In doing this our aim has been distinction. In past years
there has been a tendency towards sameness. This year we have
changed radically. In pursuing our aim We selected a name for
this book which we think represents its full meaning. The first
meaning of Signum is "the seal" and we use as representing our
school, its seal. The significance of Equality and Excellence add
to the reasons why we have chosen this name.
So you have the Signum as a record of the Academy for the
year 1918-1919. Each member of the staff has done his best to
make this book as nearly perfect as possible as a means of adding
to the pleasant memories of the Class of 1919 in the years to come.

"Better late than never."
We are very glad to have had Marian as a classmate even
though she has been with us for only two years. Marian manages
to get her lessons and have good times outside in the meantime.
Her course in domestic science will prove to some man how ef-
ficient she is. We are eonident that Marian will also be a credit
to the business world.

She is so very. quiet that sometimes we don 't know she is

but we promised we wouldnlt tell. We haven 't found out what
she intends to do next year but we ar-en't worrying about Dot 's

"A true friend is one worth having."
This little lady even had the audacity to ask our reporter
what she is especially noted for. The first thing is thatiheathen-
ish yell that startles us out of belief that she never makes any
noise. Then, haven 't we a comfortable feeling when we're with
her that she is listening to what we are saying, and isn't going
to "rake us over the coals?" Her ambitions are of a higher
sort than many of ours and point to a college in Ohio.

EVELYN YVONNE BEEMAN
"I just can 't make my eyes behave."
Evelyn is one of the girls that hails from across the river
and no doubt that is her excuse for being late so often. Her
first thought is to ha.ve a good time and as far as we can see, shc
certainly accomplishes it. We hear rumors of her keeping com-
pany with the son of one of our well known grocers but we ad-
vise you to go to Evelyn for more definite information.

Anna is another one of our ,good students. She never acts
as if her schoolwork troubled her much but when it comes to reci-
tations, she's right there. Anna has one great accomplishment
and that is her singing. She certainly has a wonderful voice. Her
good nature is her chief characteristic and it makes one feel good
to be with her. Anna has a twin for, wherever you see her, you
see Harriet. We know that Anna will have great success in her
HARRY VV. BLANK
"Give to the world the best that you have
And the best will come back to you!!
If you see a very energetic young man dashing through the
halls, you may be sure that he is Harry Blank. He is certainly
one of the Inost industrious young men that we know. As Edi-
tor-in-Chief of this book, he has again given us proof of his ef-
ficiency. He has taken an active part in everything connected
with school life, either in business or pleasure. So We all hate
to think what the class of 1919 would have done without him.

KATHERINE G. BLYLEY
"A person of business."
Just to hear "Kat's" firm, decided footstep as she goes
down the hall, one would know her to be a girl on Whom all un-
consciously rely. It has been thus ever since she came to thc
Academy. Her business ability has made her a necessary factor
in almost every enterprise that the class of 1919 has undertaken.
She is also genuinely interested in all social events. We all wish
her great success in whatever she does.

What would the Senior class have done without Talitha?
Our class would not possess such an original and appealing song,
if it had not been for her. One can hardly believe that such a lit-
tle person could do such big things. Talitha is not only a finc
composer but also a. clever little violinist and artist. She is
never idle a moment and from her sketches we conclude that her
favorite animal is the pony. With all of hcr talents, Ta1itha's
future holds a variety of things in store for her.

"A quiet girl yet a charming one."
Just come in Yergil and hear Aileen recite, she will take
Your breath away. She always has her lessons and yet has a good
time too. She lives out of town and that accounts for her absence
at many of our social functions. She is a very good friend and has
helped greatly to raise the standard of the class of 1919.

Nothing is too diiiicult for Lillian to do. Did we ever become
so entangled in the meshes of an Algebra. or Physics problem
that Lillian could not straighten out each difficulty and lead us
out safely? She is so willing and cheerful in giving such help
that she is sure to succeed as a teacher. It is very evident that
Lillian Will also be an excellent housewife as reports of her ability
in needlework and the culinary art have proven.
MARJIORIE CLARA BURK
"Blithe and bonny and gay."
Marjorie is quite a shy little girl and so quiet at times that we
hardly know she is with us. Her thoughts run in deep channels
and her mind is continually grasping valuable and worth-while
information. The attentions of a certain young man do not seem
to interfere with Mai-jorie's lessons for her standings always
hover around the nineties.

"Solemn and studious is he.',
Did anyone ever hear Bernard crack a joke? We never have,
but one thing we know is, that should he crack one it would be
worth listening to. One must really know Bernard to appreciate
him. In his studies he is an all around man, not fast, but steady,
always doing something that counts. As we look into his horo-
scope we see him a. prominent man of the future.
"Knowledge comes and wisdom lingers."
Henry's wisdom so overwhelms the rest of us that we can only
sit amazed and speechless. Can any of us ever forget that mem-
orable day when Henry was giving a very eloquent exfplanation in
Ver-gil? Of course we could hardly be expected to understand
some of his more lengthy words but when he had finished, we were
even more firmly convinced of our ignorance. Then Miss Tash-
jian very cleverly said, ' 'What he means to say is ........ " and
she gave us the explanation in language that We could at least
understand. But Henry is as true a friend as he is a fine student
and he has greatly helped to make this last year a successful one.

"A merry heart doeth good like medicine."
No one can be blue when around Gertrude. She is a sure cure
for the blues. She always seems to enjoy everything and if you
should hear the words "Wasn't that great?" you can be sure it's
Gertrude talking. Did you ever see her dance? She seems to
understand how to " trip the light fantastic" and besides that,
she has many other accomplishments. We know that "Gert" will
succeed in the future.
FRANCES H. GOLDBERG
' 'Just sweet with human kindness! '
Frances is always so quiet that we don 't know much about her.
But we do know one thing and that is that she is a good student.
Her recitations are always a joy to the teachers, and her name
usually appears on the honor roll. Frances isn't selfish with her
knowledge either for she will always help her friends. May she
be successful in her future life!
"What is more rare than a good disposition! "
Agneta is a very quiet and studious person. She has a very

Her greatest fault is her liking for moving pictures. She has

"Bore not his cheeks the apple 's ruddy glovv'?'l
We do mean to make "Walt" vain but everyone admires his
rosy cheeks. VValter is one of our E. F. A. farmers and for two
years was a member of our farm brigade. This accounts for the
above. He never Was a "shark" but he manages to get through
just the same. He is a. silent youth who seldom ventures an
opinion unasked, but we feel safe in prophesying a very rosy
future for him.
"She is gentle, she is shy
But there's mischief in her eye." .
Thelma lives in a sphere apart from the rest of us, in a little
World of her own. Thus it is rather a hard task to tell what We

very fond of them, especially when there are to be "lots of eats."

'iKnoWledge is the wing wherewith we iiy to heaven."
It seems to us that Ida must believe this motto, for she lives
up to it. She is more fortunate than the rest of us mortals, for
she finished in January. While here she took up business sub-jects
and was very conscientious in her work. We hear now that she is
using her knowledge to advantage in business and We are sure
that Ida's usccess will be complete.
JOHN 'WENDELL HOWARD
'Haltl one, two, Right, dress! Front! At ease! "
Wendell has spent much of his brain energy this year drilling
the stalwart youths of Company A over the Armory floor. Who
would guess from this that he is a parso11's son. Rumors are re-
peatedly reaching us that Wendell keeps company with a charm-
ing young lady in both the lower and upper halls. This is rather
a surprise to us but it is only one of many. In later life Wendell
intends, so he says, to become a forester or soldier, at either of
which we are sure he will be successful.
CAROLYN J. HOWE
'AA sweet, attractive kind of grace."
Carolyn believes in "packing all her troubles in an old kit bag
and smiling." Although very quiet, she is always busy and doing
things worth while. She is very much interested in church work
and we have heard that she has a kindergarten class We can
picture her conducting a kindergarten and we do not doubt out
that all of her pupils will love her and bc attracted to her just as
we have been.
CHARLES ANTHONY HUGHES
p "An Originator of fun."
Charles is another of the young men who has helped to make
the Senior Class the fun-loving one that it is. His impcrsonations
of that well known character "Charlie Chaplin" are quite mar.
velous and for that reason are known far and wide. He is also
noted a great debatcr and we believe that he would have Q
very successful career as a lawyer. He is excellent in working on
party committees and his help has been sought very often, VVC all
wish you great success, Charles, in whatever you undertake.
ROGERS PLATT CHURCHILL
"Jest and youthful jollityf'
Rogers is our class jester. He not only has spent hours searchs
ing for jokes for the Vindex and Year Book but he also has origi-
nated some. His wit and humor help to make him a model toast-
master and entertainer. He likes to argue and in this he is par-
ticularly successful. We envy Rogers because he seems to have
his name on the honor roll with practically no efforts whatever.
Rogers has helped the class and the school enormously and his
support has been appreciated by all.

"Of all the great fussers on land and sea,
Pray tell us who it is if it is not she."
This young lady is noted for hor beautiful dark eyes and hei-
general fashionable appearance. She is also a great actress, as
all who witnessed the class play will tell you that she was a
great f'Molly." We have great expectations for her in this line,
in the future. Dorothy is very fond of good ti1119s and although
she has not worked overtin-ie in school, we nevertheless leel sure
of her future success.

"To laugh and he merry is my motto."
Anna never seems to hother very much about lessons but she
'gets through somevvay and manages to have good times along
with her work. She is always jolly and is an optimist, for she
sees the best in everything. Good luck to you, Anna, and may
your happy disposition drive away all cares.
HOWARD J. UNOLD
"He sayeth little and thinketh less."
Is there any student who does not know Howard? If so, inake
haste, for not to know him is a loss. A good sport is the best
Way we have of describing him. As far as we can discover he
is one of that species that can shine in whatever line strikes
its fancy without really worrying about it. So here's to Howard
for his success in life.
CARA R. VAN CAMPEN

VVe are Seniors and we are passing out of dear old E. F. A., some of us to
begin life 's battle, and others to go on to higher institutions of learning. We
have successfully passed over all obstacles placed in our way, and we have ac-
complished our tasks. In the glow of graduation and peering into the future
some of us, perhaps, forget the life in E. F. A. for the past four years. Let us
pause for a moment in our mad, twentieth century rush and review our carrers
in the Academy.
Freshman! How we dreaded the name as we timidly entered the Academy
for the iirst time on that fateful Tuesday in 1915! How many mistakes did we
make in those first few days? How we were laughed at by the upper-classmen!
Yet we managed to exist and as we began to get acquainted with teachers, Alge-
bra, and each other, we were soon enjoying ourselves. Shortly we attended our
irst mass meeting and nominated our officers. We began
in politics. George Diven was elected presidentg Esther
Lois Shoemaker, secretary, John Lynch, treasurer. We
June Regents' with nothing in particular happening.
urged to subscribe to wonderful papers, and to go out
to receive instructions
drifted along towards
We were frequently
for games which men
played and whi-eh, they said we would have to play some day. But we wisely
stuck to our studies and under the safe guidance of Miss Calkins we had a picnic
late in June before we tackled our grim semi-annual visitor.
Sophoinores! And new we had our turn to tease those green children! We
held our election early and elected Mortimer Sullivan president, Marion VVest,
vice-president, K. Blyley, secretary, George Diven, treasurerg Miss Hopkins,
patron saint. Between our work, and our activities into which some of the more
venturesome now began to enter, we thought we were very busy but we managed
fee? r ,s ax
f l : 5 if'
731205 to hold a party which was very successful. NVe were now accepted into that
very powerful body of upper-classmen and we began to feel much taller and more
potent as we gripped with the Giant.
Juniors! Our assumed dignity almost overburdened us but we managed to
keep up-right and managed with great eiitort to get our hats on. Under the cap-
able guidance of Edward Young, president: Susan Holleran, vice-president,
Marie Beardsley, secretary, Carlton Stanehtleld, treasurer, and Miss Quinlan,
patron saint, we early began to assume our inherent duties. We even began to
ehum around with SENIORS! We held a. big Junior party with a vaudeville
show in the fall, which was quite an undertaking. We planned and Worked and
studied, besides having a little fun now and then. We were ,right "in the swim."
To crown our successful career we held a. party in May and then-on to meet our
Destiny, the Regents!
Seniors! Wonderful, hoped-for name! Title of dignity! How many of us
looked any different from what we did as Juniors? Yet we thought we did, as the
burdens of our elass and school fell upon us. Under our capable oflicers we soon
entered upon our tasks, the Vindex, parties, committees, the Signuin. And now
we are at the end. Our memories of fair E. F. A. are many and fond. Our
friendships are dear. And so, in our busy rush, let us not forget our motto,
"He profits most who serves best,'7 and strive to keep on as we have begun.

Trbe Senior Uieception
The Senior Class has held many enjoyable social functions but the largest
and most successful was the Senior Reception which was held in the Masonic
Temple, November 29, 1918. The hall was decorated with the class colors includ-
ing the class banners and a few American flags. For the feature dance, a large
American flag was suspended by the four corners in the middle of the hall. The
flag was Hlled with baloons and at a given time these were allowed to float down
upon the dancers. The refreshments consisted of punch and wafers. During the
intermission the Fidelman sisters gave a delightful little dance. The following
committees were responsible for the success of the party:
Ticket Committee-Chauncey VVright, Rogers Churchill.
Decoration Connnittee-Marie Bcardsley, Susan Holleran, James Deegan,
Entertainment Committee-Alice Grinnell, Marjorie Burk, Lawrence Fitch.
Refreshment Committee-Louise Davis, Alice Price, Irving Hall, Lewis
Music Committee-Harry Blank, Cara Van Campen, Dorothy Hays.
Program Committee-Mortimer Sullivan, Helen Flynn, James Perry.
'Ebe Valentine Tarty
On February 14, 1919, the Senior Class held a Valentine Party in the gym-
nasium. The room was decorated with red crepe paper, and the lights being cov-
cred with it, giving the room a soft glow. Along two sides of the room were small
white-covered tables each bearing a vase of red carnations. After the ice cream
and cake was served, "Reverend Rogers Churchill, D.D.," gave a very interesting
sermon. Then Herman Leupelt and Charles Hughes ,alias Charles Chaplin, gave
a very amusing dialogue. The remainder of thc evening was spent in dancing.
The following people composed the -committee for this party:
Marion West, chairman, Bernice Clark, Dorothy Espey, Edgar Tillman

May 2, the SIGNUM Board held a party in the gyninasiuin for the benefit
of the Board. There was dancing to the uiusic of the Jazz Band and ice creain
and wafers were served. A large crowd attended and a large ainount was real-
ized. We ,owe the success of the party to Herman Leupelt, Marie Beardsley,
Daniel O 'Neil, Carolyn Howe, and Helen Flynn.

attended and dancing was enjoyed until 10 :3'0. 5537.50 was the net proiit and this
was turned over to the Student Council. The connnittee in charge was: Alice
Price, Lucile Meeker, Daniel O 'Neil, John Lynch, Alfred Ziindahl, Janies Deegan,
May 9, the Seniors held a. party in the gyinnasiuni for their parents and it
was the novelty of the Year. Just imagine the students acting as teachers and
Vice versa. Harry Blank conducted the class composed of English teachers,
'Henry Friendly taught U25 Math, Esther Leonard was in charge of the foreign
language class, Janies Deegan showed how to run an office, Katherine Blyley
instructed in science 5 and Mort led the teachers in physical training. It was a
most enjoyable party, which was concluded with a talk by Dr. Lent. We hope
that in the future the classes will follow the example of the Class of 1919 and
hold a Get-Together Party for their parents. The connnittee in charge was Helen
Fitzpatrick, Ellawene P-ettingill, Marie James, Elizabeth Evans. Williain Hoff-
man, Morris Fidehnan, Leo MacNan1ara, Dorothea. Atwater, Venna Decker,

A CAST FOR CLASS PLAY

ri 'Ti 'li
l fi f x.,
HE MAN VH ETAYED AT Hlllltlf
The Seniors produced a great play this year which everyone enjoyed. Con-
trary to the usual custom the play was not of ancient times but strictly modern.
The story has to do with the present war. The place is an inn on the coast ol'
England, the time, September 1914. It concerns the edorts of an English secret
service man, Brent, to discover the German spies in this English inn, owned by
Mrs. Sanderson. Brent suspects the Sandersons but needs proof. He is aided in
his Work by Miriam Leigh, a widow. Brent ls love for Molly, and the quarrels
between Miss Myrtle and Preston help the action along, while secret wireless
stations, tires. guns, revolver tights, etc., furnish plenty of thrills.
Innis Lyon, as the English secret service man, Christopher Brent, masque-
rading as a dude, did well. He showed talent. Dorothy Todd as Molly Preston,
Who, in love with Brent, 'has her patience sorely tried by his secret Work with
Miriam Leigh, was the typical English girl. Alice Grinnell as Miriam Leigh, was
the star. Her impersonation of the part of the sympathetic widow required
talent, and Alice was "there'l every time.
Edgar Tillman was a typical Englishman. Blustering, nervous, and easily
excitable, he played Mr. Preston, Molly's father, to perfection. At the hotel
there is also an old maid, Miss Myrtle, a "maiden lady" Who will never again see
forty. She is the typical boarding-house "old maidn and she has set her cap for
Preston. Venna Decker was Miss Myrtle and was the hit of the play. She was
The difficult German parts required exceptional acting and each member of
the German cast was excellent. Irving Hall played the villain, Carl Sanderson,
as modern villains should be done. In the first part he was the suave, pleasing
Englislnnan, but he quickly changed in the last to his real character. Helen
Flynn as Fraulein Schroeder, the pseudo English governess, was very good.
Edward Young made a great butler, his talent surprising everyone. His Ger-
man dialect Was perfect.
Mortimer Sullivan as the English recruit Pennicuick, Anna Bernstein as
Mrs. Sanderson, and Alice Price as Daphne Kidlington, took their minor parts
Well and deserve much credit. Daniel O'Nei1l had but a line in the last act but
he took his part Well and he comes in for his share with the rest.
The scenery was exceptionally appropriate and the properties very fitting
indeed. Lawrence Fitch was the stage-manager and he surely was the man for
the job. He showed that he knew how to make things perfect. Cornelius Sulli-
van Was the business manager and he is responsible for the financial success.
The greatest credit for the success of the play, however, goes to Mrs. Doyle,
who so very capably coached the cast.

The Student Council this year has accomplished many things. NVith mem-
bers representing all activities and all interests of the school, the Council is a
direct medium for helping E. F. A. in many Ways.
The Council this year undertook the task of raising money to buy a bronze
tablet upon which will be inscribed the names of our heroic dead. Katherine
Blyley is chairman of this committee and she has accomplished a wonderful
work as nearly 39200 has been raised already. Before school closes in June the
entire sum will be at hand to pay for this fine tribute to the memory of the
Academy boys who died in the service.
Another committee was the Thrift Stamp committee. Mr. Parker after
Regents gave the management of the Thrift Stamp campaign in the Academy
to the Student Council. This campaign was continued till the middle of April
when the Home Room Representative plan went into effect. Altogether the
Student Council Committees sold many dollars worth of Thrift Stamps.
The officers of the Council are, Arthur McMahon, presidentg Katherine Bly-
ley, vice-presidentg Marie Beardsley, secretaryg Mortimer Sullivan, treasurerg
Margaret Beardsley, Vindex editor. The Council roll is as follows:

THE VIN DEX BOARD
THQ? rig ,X
The Vindex this year maintained its reputation of being the best school
paper in the state, That its worth is evident to the students of E. F. A, is shown
by the number of subscriptions, which this year exceeded that of any previous
year of Vindex existence. ' V
The Vindex was under the capable management of of Henry Friendly,
editor, and Alfred Zimdahl, business manager. Henry Friendly showed much
skill and insight into school conditions by his excellent editorials, which were
looked for from issue to issue by all the students. He was assisted in his work
by Madeline Eoak and Harry l-Blank, whose serial story, 'The Secret VVay,"
was very thrilling and created a senastion throughout the school as it ran from
December to May. The Literary Editors also supplied much material for the
Vindex. Alice Grinnell wrote several excellent short stories, Edward Young
was responsible for some clever essays, while the following wrote short articles
of importance: Elizabeth Epstein, Dorothy Matthews, Esther Leonard, Ethel
Maclnerney, Arthur Keeffe. VVhen lnnis Lyons returned to school in February
he assumed the editorship of the Bungle which has been a source of much en-
joyment to the students.
The Class Notes were capably handled by Katherine Blyley and Naomi
Davis, the jokes, always a source of much laughter, by Rogers Churchill and
VValter V ieweg, Athletics, Mortimer Sullivan, Forum, James Deegan, Exchange,
Susan Holleran, Orchestra, Dorothy Hays, Student Council, Margaret Beards-
Alfred Zimdahl was assisted by Cornelius Sullivan and Anthony Delario.
The ads were solicited by Williaiil Lutz. Chauncey W1'Tg'l1t and Wenclell Howard
acted as circulation managers, while Everett Howes and Booth Crise, George
Merrill and Donald Thomas cared for the interests of the Sophomore and Fresh-
man classes respectively.
Mrs. Doyle acted as Literary Critic and adviser, Miss Youmans furnished
some excellent new covers from her classes, and Mr. Neuwirth assisted the
The two big numbers of the year were the Girls? Number, issued in April,
and the big May issue of '52 pages which was quite a novelty. The Girls' Num-
ber especially showed that the girls can do things as well as the boys even in get-
ting ads as the girls with Katherine Blyley as business manager almost doubled
the usual amount of advertising.
So the V index has passed through another successful year, which we know
will be a stimulus to greater efforts in the years to -come.

E The past year has been an unusually successful.
- one for the Forum Debating Club. The member-
ship was very large, and the membeis were most
enthusiastic in their work. The Forum aims to
"a V l '55
' develop good speakers by holding debates on im-
,41 portant questions of the day. A debate is held
each week of the school year, and the discussion on
any question is open to every member present. The
manner of holding the debates is also invaluable
training to any person. This is as follows: Each
member on entering the club is assigned to some
particular state, as a senator from that state, he
MISS JANE M- BIRCHARD may brng up bills, discuss motions and vote on them
exactly as is done in the Senate of the United States.
Thus every member is not only trained to speak in public, but also receives at
good knowledge of parliamentary law.
Debates, however, were not the only affairs held during the year. The mem-
bers found time on two occasions to enjoy themselves. This enjoyment was in
the nature of dancing parties which were held at the Federation. Both events
were well attended and all enjoyed themselves immensely.
Last year the members decided not to hold the annual Forum banquet. The
money that would have been spent in this way was given over to the Red Cross.
This year, the members voted to hold the banquet. This will be held at the end
of the school year.
The success of the club, this year, is largely due to the untiring efforts of
Miss Birchard, the faculty adviser, who so willingly took up the work formerly
carried on by Mr. Hill. Also we must not forget that credit is due the officers of
the club for their work during this term. These officers were: Daniel O'Neill,
president, XVilliam Lutz, vice-president, NValter Tieweg, treasurer 5 George
Connelly, recording secretary, Vtfilliam McCarthy, corresponding secretary 5
Cornelius Sullivan, sergeant at arms, James Deegan, Forum editor.

1919, would be for the best interests of the United States. On this question our
team supported the affirmative. The debate was held on May 16, in Binghamton.
The team this year was quite remarkable, as all but the leader, Henry Friendly,
had never before been in a formal debate. Henry Friendly was a member of
last year 's team which debated the railroad question with Binghamton in Elmira.
The Amherst prize cup offered as a permanent gift to the winner of three suc-
cessive debates was in the possession of Elmira this year, and because of the
wonderful fight that our boys put up we shall have the cup again next year. It
is the first time in the ten years of Elmira-Binghamton debates that a team Won
away from home. The team deserves great credit.

Athletics is again coming into its own at E. F. A. One has only to glance
at the record made by this year's football team in order to secure ample proof
of this fact. Some of the fellows may have been small but they sure could play
football. "Billl' Hoffman was captain, and 'fRed" Tillman, manager 5 and they
both had much to do with making the season such a success. The largest share
of the credit goes to Frank Ross, the efficient coach and staunch supporter of
E. F. A, football. The squad consisted of: HBill" Hoffman, 4'Red" Tillman,
4'Fairy7' Vieweg, "Smiler'7 Kerwan, 4'Si" Stannard, "Danny7' O'Neill, "Jack,
Cusick, '4Charlie" Hughes, '4Ray" Horton, UAV, Bosley, HBuck" Greatsinger,
t'Johnnie" Murtaugh, 4'Jack'7 Nichols, HDon" McCann. L'Young" Sadler and

Although the Football team did excellent work this year, the Basketball
team did even better. It is true that they lost more games than the football
squad but they also won more and made up for every game lost by beating the
team that had defeated them by a larger score than it had secured against E. F.
A. There have been many claims for the Championship of the Southern Tier
but when Elimrafs is considered the others must take second place. Coach Harry
Shepherd was one of the main factors in making the E. F. A. basketball machine
a success. The other factors were, John Levy CMgr.35 Drew Rader, CCapt.D 5
Crandal Schmidt, Martin Murphy, Thomas Malone, Carl Sutter and Mortimer
Sullivan. A study of the following scores will serve to convince the reader of

Throughout this last year Miss Hopkins has been heard to say the follow-

HA circle is a round straight line with a. hole in the middlef'
HThings which are equal to each other are equal to anything else."
"To find the number of square feet in the room you multiply the room by
the number of feet. The product is the result." .
We have heard -of many fine sayings in Physical Geography, and in that
subject Miss Underhill is the one who gives us these few facts. We have not
been able to iind out if she said all of them or whether the students spoke them.
From the following it looks as if both might be the case.
HThe Rocky Mountains are on the Weste1'11 side of Philadelphia."
"Cape Hatteras is a vast body of water surrounded by land and flowing

However, there was no reason for his assuming that the young thing next to
