X S we sail the .sea of life, may the
"Torch,' relight the memory
of the course we steered through
high school .... Though there
were stormy days . . . and days
when we were hecelmed . . . we
will rememher only the smooth sail-
ing on this, our pleasure cruise.
As a small token of our appreciation of her wise
and kindly guidance throughout our high school
days, we, the class of '37, gratefully dedicate the
"Torch" to our Patron Saint
MISS HELEN I-IIBBARD

FRANCIS R. PARKER
FOR three and one-half years the ship of '37 was guided and piloted
through both calm waters and stormy seas by that loving, faith'
ful captain, Mr. Parker. Each member ofthe crew had the privilege
of seeking advice from this kind captain. His decisions, which were
wise and just, were always respected. I-le was an inspiration to all,
because of his fine intellectual ability his liberal ideas and opinions,
and his sympathetic understanding of the problems of young people.
DR. ALBERT H. HELMKAMP
WE welcome Doctor I-lelmkamp as the new principal
of the Elmira Free Academy. l-le has already proved
that he can competently fill the position which Mr. Parker
held for so many years. It is a difficult task which faces
him but We are confident that, with the ability he has shown
from the beginning, he will overcome all obstacles. I-le has
shown his interest in and fairness toward all students and
his unfailing efforts in their behalf have already endeared
him to their hearts. We wish for him much success as
principal of the Academy.
DILLON A. CADY
WE wish to express our gratitude to Mr.
Dillon Cady for the interest which
be has shown in the students during and since
Mr. Parker's absence. His patience and will-
ing cooperation will always be remembered
and appreciated by the pupils of E. F. A.

I could Write Pages on the "glories of old E. Ii. A." but I dont think I shall. Of
course we shall all remember the wonderful good times we have had in connection with this
school, and I don't believe there is one of the class of ,37 that does not feel deep regret
leaving, although we are looking forward to the things we are going to do and the good
times we are going to have after graduating.
Surely you will all back me up when I Pass on a word of thanks and appreciation to
the faculty who have proved themselves real friends, always ready to talce a Iew niinutes to
help any of us with our problems, in spite of the hardships brought upon them by the
overcrowded condition of the school. I hate to think of the memories that the teachers will
I-ave of some of us, myself included, but we will have to agree that all of our classes would
have been less of a problem and therefore much more Profitable and enjoyable if we had
realized the full importance of what Charles Steiuiuetz was talking about when he said,
k'Cooperation is DOI a sentimentg it is an economic necessity." This seems to be one of our
trustiest weapons in the hunt for that most elusive and most sought after of all quarries,
Yours for lots of it,
WE, THE CLASS OF 1937, are nearing the completion of four of the most exciting and
eventful years of our life. It has been a period of mental growth for each one of us and the
ultimate goal has, of course, been graduation, the most thrilling climax of all.
The first stage of our journey was rather uneventful, since we failed even to elect
class officers. Nevertheless, we became well acquainted with our surroundings and the tradi-
tions of E. F. A. which prepared us for the future.
In our Sophomore year, we elected Robert It-rome president, Mary Clarke vice-
president, Margaret Hardy secretary, and Robert Thomas treasurer. As sophomores, we
successfully celebrated a class day and gave an assembly.
On the third lap of our journey, we chose Robert Thomas president, assisted by
Elizabeth Baker, Frances Day and Robert Iszard. Gay red and white ribbons were con-
spicuous on Iunior Day, which seemed to mark the beginning of real prominence for our
class. The Inuiors collaborated with the Seniors to have a socially successful prom.
Upon our return as Seniors in September, Robert Thomas was again elected president,
together with klargaret Hardy vice-president, Iune Steen secretary, and Vinton Stevens
treasurer. On May fourteenth, the Senior Play, 'LBig-Hearted Herbert," was presented under
the able direction of Mr. Iohn Colgan. It was most amusing and met with huge success.
The Senior Prom was not held this year, so the Senior Reception remains the sole social
event on our calendar. However, Senior Day made some retribution for this disappointment,
and the long awaited commencement is yet to come.
Soon the members of the Class of ,37 will be making their individual marks in this
world, backed by their friends and educators, the faculty of E. F. A. May they have success.

IN SEPTEMBER, the Freshman Class arrived to join the students of Elmira Free Academy
hoping, hot only to be happy with them, but also to gain sufficient knowledge that they
might become as brilliant as the upper classmen.
Later on, the class elected its ofHcers for the year. Freshmen activities, however, were
somewhat restricted owing to their youth and inexperience, particularly in athletics. Never-
theless, they showed Promise for the future not only al ng educational lines but also in
their interclass workouts.

As THE HUB or THE XVHEEL about which the activities of the Elmira Free Academy revolve,
the Student Council has very successfullv guided the destinies of the student bodv this vear.
The Council sponsored the Hrst school social event of the term, the fall carnival, at
which a witch and a wizard were chosen to reign over the festivities.
ln collaboration with The Vindex, the Council arranged the E. F, A. Varieties of
1937, a show which was enthusiasricallv received bv the student bodv. Another carnival,
held in the spring was also the result of Student Council work.
ln addition to bringing many interesting assembly speakers to the E.,F. A., the
Council has proved itself to be an efficient, valuable organization in directing the affairs of

ANOTHER CHAMPION TEAM
WITH A SEASON as impressive as the last one, the Elmira High Schools! football team again
won all their games and gained distinction of being one of the major undefeated teams
in New York State.
It is generally conceded that the Utica team was the hardest to beat, but the majority
of the fans will recall the Ithaca game asdthe most exciting.
Great things were expected of the 1936 team. There was a good reason for the
expectations, for twelve letter men returned from the fine team of the year before. With this
group as a nucleus, Coach Hirst molded a combination which, in all respects, lived up to
the standard set by the team of the previous year.
The Blue and White started with a bang. On the third of October the strong East-
wood team of Syracuse came to the Harper Street field. The Syracusans returned to that
city a sadder, but wiser group, on the short end of a 19-7 score.
The following Saturday the team, together with a large group of local fans, made
the journey to Auburn. This game was of great importance to the upstate city, since it was
the Hrst game played in their new stadium. The warriors of E. H. S. were very inconsiderate,
taking a good, but inexperienced, Auburn team by a score of 20-o.
October seventeenth was the first time that the Blue and White followers were
worried about the outcome of a game. But the powerful Utica team came, saw, and was
conquered. The score being E, H. S. 20, Utica I2,
The next victory was over the traditional foe, Binghamton. By winning this game,
the local boys evened the score with their ancient rival, each has now won fifteen games.
It also was the last game ever to be played between the two schools, as Bingo has broken
athletic relations with Elmira. The score: Elmira 7, Bingo o.
The closest score was that of the U.-E. game, Elmira winning by a margin of only
three points, nine for E. H. S. while all that the Orange Tornado could get was six.
A hard-fighting Cortland team fell on the next Saturday under the push of a superior
Blue and White. Using numerous reserves, the E. H. S. was able to win 24-O.
The Hnal game of the season was with Ithaca. Nearly one thousand followers of the
Blue and White accompanied the team. They were not disappointed. The two fast, light
combinations fought the full four quarters. The E. H. S., with superior teamwork and
blocking, won 26-zo.
With a string of Hfteen consecutive victories, the Elmira boys have set a Hne record.
The whole school will join in wishing the team of 1937, which will have sixteen returning
letter men, all the luck in the world and that their season will be as fruitful as that of this

ALTHOUGH THE RECORD of three victories and seven defeats in league competition compiled
by the 1936-37 edition of the Elmira High Schools' basketball team was far from brilliant,
things were not as dark as they seem. A glance at the records shows that Blue and White
lost only two games by a margin of over ten points, and only one of these could be called
a 1'OLlt. In its final game, Elmira succeeded in doing what no other team had been able
to do in the league race, namely, to triumph over Cortland, champions of the western divi-
sion of the circuit. Finally, and perhaps most important, there will be a large group of
experienced players returning next season, and prospects are bright for an Elmira champion-
ship in 1938.
At the start of the campaign, Coach Hirst was blessed with only two veterans,
"Redl' O,Neil and "Flip'l LeValley. These two, together with the sensational Sophomore
shooter, Ropelewski, formed the nucleus for the team that Coach Hirst found necessary to
juggle quite constantly during the season in an effort to hit upon a winning combination.
Sleeper, McConnell, Messing, Shaff, Heher, Robertson, and Crittenden all saw considerable
action in varsity games.
The opening game was a non-league encounter with the Reformatory who were a
highly lauded aggregation. The Blue and VVhite made a strong showing, and hopes rose
regarding the conference chase. However, Endicott served notice that all was not to be so
agreeable, when they took the Hrst league encounter from the locals by a 38-25 score. Leon
Ropelewski brightened the gloom somewhat by tossing in 16 points for E. H. S. A week
later, the Hirstmen dropped a second decision to Iohnson City, but kept the score close
all the way.
The Elmirans scored their initial victory of the season at Ithaca, when they piled up
an overwhelming advantage in the second period. The game was enlivened, or marred,
which ever way one looks at it, by a display of Hsticuffs, but Elmira beat off a last quarter
rally to win 30-26. The Blue and Wliite suffered its worst defeat of the season at the hands
of Binghamton in a game about which the least said is the best. In the Hnal contest of
the round, the Hirstmen nearly upset Cortland, but failed by three points.
E. H. S. avenged its earlier licking at the hands of U.-E. by outpointing them 8-2
in an extra period to win 36-30. The Elmirans, however, suffered setbacks in their next three
contests, losing to Iohnson City by five points, Ithaca by two points, and Binghamton by
five points, after leading at the halfway mark in each encounter. The locals completed the
the schedule in a blaze of glory when they handed Cortlandfs Purple its initial conference
defeat with a last half drive that carried them to victory, 19-17.
The Sophomore star, Leon Ropelewski, who finished fourth in the Conference race
for point-getting honors, led the team in scoring. He caged forty-one field goals and twelve
fouls for a seasonls total of ninety-four points. Harry O'Neil was second with twenty-nine
Held goals and II fouls for sixty-nine points, while Fred LeValley, veteran guard, was third
with fifty-one tallies.

BANISI-IES CRAB GRASS
AND VVEED PESTS
One of the most annoying problems of lawn
care is now thoroughly solved by means of
this simple, inexpensive device, Quickly in-
stalled on any lawn mower, new or old.
Gently combs, disentangles and lifts up grass
and weeds for smooth, even cutting-gives
your lawn a "barber's trim."
Prevents re-seeding of low-growing, lawn-
destroying grasses and other annual weeds
which ordinary mowing leaves untouched-
they can'I' re-seed if you keep them cut
down. Only with Mowerake can these lawn
parasites be cut with an ordi-
SI nary mower. Ask your dealer
' to demonstrate it.
