The only change in the English Department this year has been the installation of new
books. They are HPr0se and Poetryf, four volumes that contain all the literature used in
class work. Whether or not they will be used another year is undecided. for the English
Department expects a radical change in the State syllabus that will call for a broader study
of classic literature.
Special emphasis has been placed on the technical work this
- year. For years the faculty has had many special clinics and it is
with regret that they have not been able to give them this year. Such
a change was occasioned by the transfer of several teachers to the
Although the English Department has not been in charge of
a special assembly, the students wH0 demonstrated the work of
the other departments were chosen for their proficiency in English.
Since weekly oral work has been required, the development in the
average student's ability to ei-Lpress himself and assimilate the essen-
tials has been frequently noted in other classes.
Special project work has been enjoyed by the students. One

SCIENCE AND ART DEPARTMENTS
Science classes are filled to overflowing this year. indicating that there is a marked
increase in the number of students who wish tm learn something of the forces that surround
us and of which we are made. Chemistry classes are especially popular. making it difficult
to work in the laboratory.
Those of us who are mechanically inclined are rounding into shape under the guidance
of Miss Youmans, while the future artists and designers of the school are being trained
successfully by Miss Sekol. Both branches ofthe Art Department are overcrowded, but the
teachers are accomplishing Wonders under adverse conditions.
The Art Department has been of special value to the Torch staff.
The Home Economics Department offers a course which may n W
he elected by any girl enrolled in the Academy. T
The aims of this course are: first. to arouse in the individual
girl an understanding of the importance of developing a greater
appreciation of the mental. social, and spiritual sides of home and
community lifeg second, to help the girl develop skill in manipu-
lative processes, in reasoning, in judging. and in creating. which
will aid her in adjusting herself to everyday living. This course is
composed of seven units ol' study:
l. Nutrition, meal preparation and sewing.
2. Selection, construction. and care of clothing.
3. Family relationships.
4. Selection and decoration of the home.
5. Household administration. '
6. Child care and training. Dittoiv A. CAM

The Mathematics Department has held to a rather conservative course this past year.
There have been few changes in its curriculum. However, simple trigonometry, dealing
with the measurement of right triangles, has been taught in solid geometry and algebra
classes. The object of this is to spread trigonometry, so that
students not studying it may know something of its functions.
There is no contemplation of abolishing the regular class in trigo-
The major alteration in mathematics has been in the first year
course. Starting in January, 1932, Freshmen students have been
able to take a year of ulntroduetion to Business" in place of ele-
mentary algebra. This teaches the rudiments of business, and is
designed to prepare students for later business courses.
During the past few years the mathematics department has
undergone a gradual modification in the form of its examination
questions. These have tended to become less complicated and me-
chanical, demanding deeper thought and reasoning. ln this manner
the mathematics department has "kept up with the times" in methods

HISTORY AND COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENTS
This staff of teachers is responsible for the excellent rating' given to Academy history
students. Their subjects include ancient, modern, and American history. A thorough study
of these subjects is most essential to every high school student.
The department has tried several interesting experiments to make the subjects more
appealing. ln ancient history classes, the pupils make soap models , 7
of the prominent figures and noted architecture of famous times.
This proves interesting as well as educational.
On Armistice Day, the history group was in charge of a pa-
triotic assembly, memorable for its speeches and recitations.
The Commercial Department offers two years work, at the com-
letion of which students desiring to continue transfer to the South-
? . . . .ff . .
side. The subjects given include economic geography, commercial
arithmetic, textiles, advertising, salesmanship, and business writing.
Few schools offer textiles and advertising. On account of the great
demand for business writing, Mr. Thaddeus Emblen, director of

FOREIGN LANGUAGE DEPARTMENTS
For many years Latin has been part of the school curriculum in spite of the tendency
to do away with classical languages. The rise in the number of Vergil students this year
has been conspicuous. In November, an essembly was staged by the department. A Latin
A song, a pageant, several recitations, and a

French, too, becomes increasingly pop-
ular at the Academy. Second and third year
conversational classes have been inaugurated
this year. This department, not to be outdone
by the Latin, made itself responsible for an
assembly, in which the students showed their
proficiency in the language and literature by

As President of the class of 1932, I have been accorded the privilege of writing in your behalf a
message of farewell to our Alma Mater. Again Commencement casts its shadow upon us, and I am sure
your feelings, as well as mine, are of mingled joy and regret. Isay this in all sincerity. The opportunity
of further pursuing our education in college holds much anticipation for many of us, the opportunity of
business attracts others of usg and the uniqueness of the present financial era perplexes still others and
leaves us in a quandary as to just what our future offers. Each course holds forth promise, growth, and
a fuller life. Whatever our lot in the future, I feel safe to say we all are touched with sadness at the
thought of leaving the Academy.
Well may we as a class call the Academy our foster mother, for it is she who has guided and
directed and developed us these last four years. To her, we have incurred a life-long debt. Opportuni-
ties for democratic government, scholarship, athletics, and extra curricular activities have all been accorded
each of us. No one has been denied an equal opportunity to excel. Individual initiative, ambition, and
perseverance have never failed to receive encouragement and reward. Examples of justice, fairness,
patience, and benevolence have been brought clearly home to us in the life and conduct of our Principal,
F. R. Parker, as well as in our faculty. These impressions and lessons, like the friendships we have made
here, will be ever a part of us, long after our knowledge of particular subjects has left us. Is it any
wonder, then, that there is a tinge of sadness in our hearts at leaving behind these inestimable joys?
Yet we must go on, for we must see life through and see it whole. Therefore, we relinquish our
place to another class, not to end but to begin a fuller and more mature life.
In parting then, may I hope that we, as a class, will be ever loyal to our Alma Mater, and all that
she and her principal and her faculty have taught us.
May we so continue that our lives and our achievements may ever reflect honor, gratitude, and
appreciation upon Elmira Free Academy.
Sincerely yours, '

THE JUNIOR CLASS
For two years, the members of the Class of '33 wandered in our halls in pursuit of
knowledge. Now their horizons have broadened and they begin to take an interest in school
The Junior Class began its career three years ago when it was represented on the Stu-
dent Council by three freshmen. Last year, as Sophomores, they were favored by one seat
in that body, and this year, by four. However the class did not feel its unity until it elected
ollicers last fall. They are: Richard Seem, President, Alice Booth, Vice-President, Anne
Coleman, Secretary, and George Gregory, Treasurer.
Class jewelry was ordered early in December. Both pins and rings have the same de-
sign, an oncoming ship bearing the letters E. F. A. on its sails. The background is a blue
stone representing the school colors.
The Junior basketball team was victorious, under Captains Joseph Christastie and James
DeNunzio. It won all' six games played against Seniors and underclassmen.
At present the Class of '33 is looking forward to its day of days, Junior Day, at the end
of which will be held the Junior Promenade.

THE SOPHOMORE CLASS
The Sophomore and Freshman Classes at the Academy are not organized and do not
participate in activities as groups. However, individuals may join the clubs. Some socie-
ties require the new members to be second year students.
The two hundred Freshmen that entered E. F. A. at the close of January could not be
seated in the crowded Academy building. The new George M. Diven School received them
with a group of our teachers.

Late in November the Student Council swung into form with a magician show by Robert
Thrasher. famed local performer of black magic.
During the second semester, the Council gave several after-school dances in the gym-
nasium. The ten cent entertainments have been well received by the depression affected
lnterclass Athletics were supervised for the Hrst time by the governing board. The
work consisted chiefly of providing eligibility rules and lists, and in purchasing equipment.
The most prominent social event of the year, sponsored by this group, was the Annual
Spring Carnival held in the school halls, May l3tl1, in conjunction with the Senior Class.
Each school organization participated. Much of the credit for its success is due to John
Delaney and his committee, who were responsible for the unique arrangements.

Despite a year of Hnancial reverses, the Yindex staff of l931-32 has successfully main-
tained the high standards set hy its predecessors. The student journalists have not had the
financial support of other years, yet the quality of their work has heen excellent. Among
the outstanding issues were the uBingo', and Christmas ones. The latter was printed in
green ink with red decorations. The April Fool paper in orange and green was the source
of much laughter.
The Vindex placed in two contests this year, receiving second place in Class HB" com-
petition at Columbia. and first honorahle mention at Cornell. The staff deserves praise for

Under the capable guidance of Miss Gamble, the Agora Debating Society has enjoyed
an interesting year. A few weeks after school opened in September, thirty new members
were admitted. During the first semester, the weekly meetings were devoted to a variety
of interesting programs in which unusual ability was displayed by the girls. A novel spread,
at which the members obtained their food by reciting tongue-twisters, ended the first term.
The second half of the year was given over to a series of debates on topics of vital interest
to high school students of today.

The boyls debating club has accomplished more than usual this year. One of the most
interesting battles was fought over the proposition. ulflmira Should Adopt the City Manager
Plan of Municipal Governmentf' The negative side was triumphant. Members have en-
joyed hearing several outside speakers.
This year Forum started an important experiment in our high school. Contrary to E.
F. A. custom, it has abolished the former vigorous initiation that every pledge had to un-
dergo before becoming a full-fledged member. Congratulations.
Although its activities have already been numerous, the club is planning to hold both
a debate in Assembly, and its annual banquet.

Viihen this club was organized, it was known as the Friendly Triangle. lts purpose was
to unite its members in a spirit of friendliness and service and any girl who was a student
at the Elmira Free Academy was eligible.
Later, the name was changed to the Girl Reserves. The original spirit of friendliness
and service still reigns, as well as the ideals of team work and loyalty to MDear Old E. F. Af'
The Girl Reserves have been unusually active this year. They have conducted weekly
business meetings and have had several social functions. Among the outstanding of these
gatherings were the Freshman Party, Initiation Night, the Christmas Party, and numerous
skating parties. The basketball team has been very successful in its Weekly games.
At Christmas a group of poor children was entertained and baskets of food were sent
to the needy at Thanksgiving and Easter.

Hi- succeeded in these school betterments but it believes that it has also planted in the
minds Of its members high standards of Christian character, for which the club stands.
At the beginning Of the year the executive committee planned a program of speakers,
by which the members had the Opportunity of hearing leading men Of Elmira talk an their
respective businesses or professions. ln contrast to these serious subjects, which were meant
to help the members to decide the vocation each wants to take up as a life work, and dis-
cussions On various topics of world-wide problems, the club enjoyed several swimming
parties, an Outing at Bob Rosels farm, and a Christmas banquet.
Hi-Y feels that no little thanks and appreciation should be extended to its worthy fac-
ulty advisor, Mr. Anthony Schwenkler, and to Mr. Ernest Eaton of the Central Y. M. C. A.

Masquers Dramatic Society gives the Academy students an Opportunity to go Hon the
stage." The unusually large membership at present shows how keenly that desire is felt.
ujonesyfl a comedy in three acts, by Anne Morrison and john Peter Toohey, was pro- l
duced in the fall. The leading roles were taken by Alice Faul and John Delaney.
Interesting programs are given at the Weekly meetings.
The annual dance, held during the Easter vacation, was a huge success. The deficit
incurred in the staging Of 'flonesyv was made up.

The Clee Club began its regular bi-weekly meetings the second week of school, when
new members were admitted. One of the first public appearances was at the Southside High
School during the Christmas Season, when parts of the Academy and Southside Glee Clubs
furnished the chorus for an interesting Christmas Play. A few nights later the girls went
On February 23rd, the Parent-Teachers Association of Riverside School was entertained.
The girls have been asked to sing for the Rotary and other organizations. Plans are being
made for a picnic to be held soon.
In May the Glee Club will hold its Annual Spring Concert at which time a joint pro-
gram with the Elmira High Schools Orchestra and Band will be presented.
Under the capable leadership of Mr. George .l. Abbott, the Elmira Free Academy
Orchestra, made up of only especially talented students, has enjoyed another successful year.
Besides rendering selections at the weekly assemblies, the orchestra played at the Masquers'
play, flonesyf, and at the drama, MLittle Women,', produced by the senior class. At the
annual Spring concert held at the Southside High School, our orchestra also participated.
The Orchestra has further ambitions. As members of a junior symphony, the indi-
vidual players are afforded the opportunity of practice in orchestration. Earnest coopera-
tion between the players and Mr. Abbott, has built up one of the best high school orches-
tras in the Southern Tier. So worth-while is the work accomplished by the members of the
unit. that they are granted Regent's credit by the State.

The Band, this year, is large and played at all the football games and an additional
game with the Alumni. At the Onondaga Valley one, the Blue and White musicians
played a ceremonial in honor of NDoc. Anderson." At Binghamton, under the capable
direction of Jack Schweppe. whose unfortunate death aroused the deep sympathy of his fel-
low classmates, the Band executed a new formation of the letter MET' amid cheers from a large
contingent of ardent supporters.
ln December, the Band performed creditably at a concert sponsored by the senior class.
Under the baton of Mr. Vllilliam Biery, the boys played c'Tramp, tramp, trampf, arranged
for baritone solo, the solo being played by Floyd Sweet.
The blue-coated boys were present at all the basketball games played at home this year,
playing such lively marches as Wfhe Boosterv and H011 Wlisconsinf'
We are sorry that no band contests were held this year as in 1928, for our fine organi-
zation would have acquitted itself admirably in any competitive concert.

This organization, which was founded in September, l928, has had an interesting life.
lts duty is to assist Miss Eldridge in the administration of the library. The girls' work
consists mainly of charging and discharging books. sending notices, arranging the books, re-
inforcing magazine covers. and helping to post new books. At the weekly meetings the
members learn the fundamentals of library procedure and talk over the problems of the
library and its duties. They also discuss many books in order to find those most suitable
for the students and their work. The club has a social, as well as a literary side. It has
an interesting and varied program that includes teas, visits to other libraries, and social
gatherings with other library councils. The members also have many good times at the social
evenings held in the homes of the various girls. It is a privilege to he chosen a member
of such an active council.

The Biology Club consists of a group of students interested in science and biology.
Early in the fall the club took an active interest in entomology, went on many field trips
and also did laboratory work on insects. In connection with this study Doctor Mathewson
of Cornell University gave an interesting lecture to a large group of staudents in the Audi-
torium. Weekly motion pictures were also enjoyed.
in February Doctor Eaton of the Geology Department of Elmira College gave an infor-
mal talk, in the auditorium of the Steele memorial Library, to the members of the club
and other interested Academy Students. Doctor Eaton spoke on prehistoric man and used
many interesting slides to illustrate his talk.
Doctor Classen of Cornell also spoke to the club.
The society holds monthly parties and an annual banquet in June, when new ofiicers

Youthful laughter and difhcult trials are met with an equal sense of responsibility by
the four Mlsittle Vllomenw of Miss Alcott's story. The escapades of these happy young-girls
include Zara's falling tower, unsuccessful plaster of Paris efforts by uLittle Raphaelf,
literary masterpieces of boyous Lilo," and Htryingeri, experiences on the part of HAmy."
uLittle Bethasn beautiful kindnesses and lovely thoughts win everyonels love. HMeg's77 earn-
est efforts and ungrudging sacrifices reap their reward.
How these girls work out the solutions to their problems and develop into Womanhood
is described in the play. It is a wholesome and amusing story, full of joyous spontaneity
and yet weighted with the more serious problems of life.

Elmira High Schools' football stock, that was precipitated to a new low level when the
bottom fell out of the local gridiron market in the fall of 1930, took an upward trend last
fall as the Blue preferred rose steadily. Although a far cry from the meaty years of 1928-
29, those days of state renown, the Elmira High Schools, football team of 1931 compiled
a record equal to any of the Southern Tier.
Elmira won five games and lost three for a .625 average, which, in the language of
percentage points, was a 292 point increase over the 1930 figures. The Blue and Wfhite grid-
men rolled up a 192 point game total while their foemen could muster but -L8 scores.
Head coach, Arthur Hirst, mobilized the Blue forces on the opening day of school.
Some three score huskies responded to the call. The squad was divided into three camps with
Coach Hirst and Leo Bolley of the 1922 state champions bossing the first squad. Coach
Bob Fox generaled the reserves and Emory Donelson, Academy teacher, the Jayvees. Seven
staid and tried veterans were available. Knapp, Ogrodowski, Punzo, Allen, Easton, Besley,
and Graham constituted this contingent. Although training operations were considerably
hampered by torrid weather, when Saturday, October 3, neared, Coach Hirst was once more
ready to chance gridiron competition with a highly pleasing outfit.
On Saturday, October 3, the Blue eleven took the field against Oneonta on the local
gridiron. The Orange invasion was repelled in its infancy as the Hirst team triumphed 33-0.
The Elmira line was impregnable and the offensive bolts, precise and sudden, could not be
checked. Ogrodowski and Knapp loosed several spectacular runs and in the triumph could
be envisioned the Hirst juggernauts of 1928-29.
Eastwood High School of Syracuse fell by the way for the third consecutive year under
the blow of a Blue shutout club . The Saline city's troops were snuffed out 37-0.
Spirit in the team ran high as it was primed for its initial great test with Ithaca. The
Ithaca triumph of 1930, the first over Elmira since 1923, was to be avenged. ln a battle
of gargantuans at the local field, in which the Hirst team outplayed the college towners in
every department of play, the lthacans secured a lean 7-6 victory by a queer quirk. The
locals tallied early in the Hrst quarter after smashing down Bed and C-old barriers com-
pletely. The placement for the extra-counter was true but another kick was ordered as result
of an off-sides. This failed but another off-sides presented another try, which went wide
of its mark. On those two off-sides rested the Red and Gold triumph.
The succeeding Saturday found a morale-weakened Blue team bowing to a weak Auburn
eleven 12-0, although Auburn had been bested 32-0 the preceding year.
Then Coach Arthur Hirst and his entire squad made ready to storm Binghamton for the
twenty-eighth annual encounter between the traditional rivals on October 31. Ample prepar-
ation and drilling put the Elmira team in the line mettle it had enjoyed against Ithaca.
Although Charles Allen, injured guard, was lost to the team for the season, the Blue warriers
entered the Bingo fray strong. The able Bingo machine was played to a standstill by the
locals and only in the closing moments did the tide turn in the dark Blue favor. The
Schuster team then pushed over the winning touchdown for a 14--6 verdict.
Solace for the Bingo and Ithaca decisions was afforded by the complete annihilation of
both Onondaga Valley School of Syracuse and Canton. The upstaters were driven off with a
32-0 win, while Canton was ground up 58-0. In a tilt resplendent with glamour and amazing
fand some not so amazingj versatility by the veterans, the varsity harnessed an alumni
aggregation by 20-15. Many of Elmira's football immortals, -- Bill Habeck, Bus Horrigan,
Ed Sweeney, and Al Frederick, played beautiful games.
After the alumni clash, the lettermen chose Max Easton, lineman, to succeed Dan Pun-
zo and Louie Knapp as Elmira captain.
The royal houses of Hirst and Schuster, rival contenders for the Southern Tier Basket-
ball Conference throne since the Leaguels formation, waged another superlative battle for
the power this year. The Schuster dynasty of three years, standing retained its championship
rights but only after precarious tottering when the Elmira claimants, and one-time cham-
pions, made a gallant bid for the League title. For the third time in as many consecutive
years, a potential coup of the light Blue fell a mite short and the 1931-32 conference crown
was won by Binghamton. The Elmira High Schools' team won ten and lost four games, to
finish in the League runner-up position.
The Conference officials scrapped the League division split of 1930-31, and substituted
in its stead the plan of other years-a split season but no split in the personnel. Elmira
Heights withdrew from the conference in favor of Counties League competition, leaving
seven teams on the field. Elmira, Norwich, and Binghamton tied for the first round title. To
avoid time-taking play-offs, the officials proclaimed the race a straight-season one.
Elmira and Binghamton drew to the fore and the beam of potential championship was
focused on the final night of competition. The ancient rivals were not paired, however.
Binghamton was scheduled for a bye while Arthur Hirst's cagemen were pitted against
Union-Endicott. An Elmira triumph would have enabled the locals to draw up on even
terms with the Parlor City quintet, thus creating a tie, followed by a play-off to determine
the league kings. The Union-Endicott courtmen, early season victims of the Blue, turned
about and on their home floor halted the Hirstmen 33-24-, blasting Elmirais title aspirations.
Sectional competition was declined by Binghamton, as the dark Blue athletic policies
frown on it. Elmira, as runner-up, was offered the chance to meet the Counties League win-
ner for district supremacy. The local team refused to compete as a second place outfit, so
Ithaca was nominated by the Conference. Ithaca likewise refused but Cortland, which fin-
ished in fourth place, accepted the invitation. The upstaters bowed to Johnson City in the
play-off. Johnson City reached the semi-final for the state championship at Syracuse.
Coach Hirst had but two veterans around whom to mold the 1931-32 team. After much
experimenting, during which time the opening contest was lost to Cortland 16-9, he per-
fected a team around Ogrodowski and Vecellio, tl1e veterans. Graham and Sebring, ably
performed with the stand-byes, being supplemented on numerous occasions by Spaulding,
Edmunds, Hurst, and Habersaat.
After the Cortland rebuff in the season-opener, the Elrnirans downed Oneonta 22-10. A
three-year Binghamton enchantment was snapped as the Hirstmen snatched a 25-24 split, last
second victory from the Schuster five. The Heights fell by the way 27-4 in a non-league fray.
A surprise 23-19 victory by Norwich, thought insignificant at the time, probably cost
the locals the first round title. lt created a triple deadlock that lead to the abolishment of
the split season. Ithaca and Union-Endicott were defeated in quick order to end the first round.
Binghamton avenged its first round defeat and checked the local drive for a second round
lead by a single basket margin, 20-18, win. Cortland and Oneonta were stopped before the
Bingo repulse. Norwich, first round conqueror of the Blue, was bested 37-20 on the South-
side court. Norwich failed to win a single contest in second round although a first round
contender. The Heights was once more massacred, by 41-14 figures this time.
A 31-22 win over Ithaca's Bed and Gold quintet was the Blueis last victory of the race.
The following week-end in the crucial season-finale, the Hirstmen were eliminated from the
possibilities of a championship tie with Bingo, by dropping a 33-24 decision to Endicott.
The Elmira team chalked up a grand total of 359 counters while enemy cage-hunters'
quests netted their 265 points against the Blue. Brusie Ogrodowski, sage of four years, var-
sity service, topped the Conference scorers by a sizeable margin. The diminutive forward
agglomerated 122 points in league games. Edgar Sebring, guard of one season,s fire, was
elected to captain the 1932-33 team and to succeed his fellow-guard, Captain Julius Vecellio.

to promote interest in girls' athletics. The large attendance at the girls' varsity basketball
games has proved the success of this enterprise.
This year, the members of the society opened their activities with their annual banquet
given in honor of the new members admitted just before summer vacation. During the
Christmas vacation the girls entertained the former members home from college at an HOld
ln addition to frequent indoor skating and swimming parties at which friends were wel-

, CLASS HISTORY
The Class of 1932, about to complete four joyous years, hopes that they have made a
lasting impression upon their school, both faculty and students.
Although unorganized during Freshman and Sophomore years, they did have each year
a representative in the Interclass Basketball League, and in their Sophomore year, Edwina
Butler and Richard Shoemaker represented the class in the Student Council. The Junior
basketball team won the interclass championship, each member being awarded a gold charm.
The ring and pin committee with Mary Splann, chairman, chose a torch as the feature of the
design for class jewelry. May eighth was observed as Junior Day. A special assembly with
Harry 07Donnell presiding, presented a one-act play, HThe Pot Boiler," delightfully inter-
preted by a well trained cast coached by Mr. Colgan. The crowning touch to the day's activi-
ties was the annual Prom, held at the Country Club.
ln October, 1931, the class named Julius Vecellio, president, Edwina Butler, vice-
president, Ruth French, secretary, Forrest Reynolds, treasurer. Mary Splann and David
Horwitz were appointed as the ring and pin committee.
The biggest social event of the year, the Senior Ball, which took place April 22nd at
Rorick's Glen, owed its success primarily to Richard Shoemaker, chairman, and to his able

director, and the cast, are to be congratulated.
On May 13th, the Senior Class, with the Student Council, sponsored the annual '6Spring
Carnival." Participated in by all classes and school organizations, this event proved a
Perhaps the greatest thrill will come on May 18th, Senior Day. It is then that honors
are announced, then that white dresses and blue ties find their way across the stage, then
that hearts beat high, and voices catch, then that seniors autograph hundreds of blue vol-
The Senior Reception lies still further ahead but it is looked forward to with anticipation.
Commencement comes last and with it the closing of their careers in the Academy.
Then the seniors part, each to explore new and different trails, but all with an appreciation
of what their Alma Mater has done for them.
