In his personal contacts with each individual senior, Dr. Helrnkamp has proved undeniably ' . We his value in the capacity of teacher, counselor, and advisor , the class of 1941, can only say, "Thank you' for every helpful word spoken to us. To THE CLASS or Ii94I2 You set forth from school in stirring time. Life, in the next few years, will be neither tranquil nor certain. World-sluaking events that are shattering European civilization will not leave you unaffected. The school venerations than immediatel receded ou faced an m Y P Y economic situation that offered them little hope. That situation has chan ed. Toda , our countr is callin for men and women, for bo s g Y Y Y g Y and girls, to give their energy and their brains to the great task of Preparation for the defense of all that we hold dear. I am sure you will not be found wanting. As you go about the business of adapting yourselves to new con- ditions, it is my earnest hope that you will never be unmindful of the rich heritage that is yours. American democracy has given you an education under freedom. It has given you a chance to think and to evaluate. Within the framework of true liberty, no one can fetter the mind, the heart, or the conscience. Your loyalties are freely given. Whatever the future may hold in store, it is ufor us, the livingn to dedicate ourselves to the task of Preserving, perpetuating and improving our democratic institutions. ln this, as in the other, I m sure you will not be found wanting. Sincerely yours, 0 ' 0 DILLQN A. CADY l'Ve express everlasting gratefulness to one who has watched us grow for four years toward the climax of our school days, one who has been always ready to lend a sympathetic ear to our troubles, and one who, if possible, helped to erase those dith- culties with a kind word or deed. CDSCAR KERLIN VVe wish to voice our thanks to Mr. Kerlin for the many advantages which we have had at the Elmira Free Academy, through his energetic and thoughtful efforts towards our well-being.

"So smalln, 'gTerri- bly scaredn, and "Poor thingsu. Despite all this, We, the Freshmen Class, soon ucaught oni' under the leadership of John DeLaney, president, Betty Swift, vice-president, Dorothy Schneck, secretary and Richard Pannell, treasurer. A Freshman Party with Ruth Butts and John Eldridge as chairmen served as our premier activity. Robert Hirst, Betty Bird Austin, Ruth Butts, and Augustine Taggi acted as officers of our class during the Sophomore year. Although we joined many clubs, as Sophomores, we were not especially active. Proud to be upperclassmen, we immediately elected Harry Furman, Betty Bird Austin, Mary Elizabeth Kinner, and' Jack Fogarty as president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer re- spectively, Miss Marian Kelly and Mr. A. Schwenkler acted as class advisers. Not only did we hold a Junior Dance headed by Harry Furman, but also we upheld the Junior Day tradition of wearing red and white. As Seniors, our year has been filled with many successful ac- tivities. Betty Swift and David Tuttle headed the Senior Musicalc Committee 5 Maryanna Hoffman and George Thomas were co- chairmen of the class dance, nBig Tap Hopn. During May were successfully planned Senior Day and the Annual Play, entitled 'fjune Mad" in which Shirley Hungerford and Thomas O'Brien played the leading roles. These were clirnaxed by the banquet and Prom. With graduation only a few weeks in the future, we are be- ginning to realize what our four year career has meant. Now are we sorry to leave, for we will greatly miss our E. F. A., so 'gdear to us always". Dear Classmates, As President of the Senior Class of 194-l, I have been accorded the privilege of writing in your behalf a message of farewell to those we leave behind. Commencement draws near. We are about to leave the tender care of beloved E. F. A., and embark on a voyage into a world strange and different from that which we have known for four years, a world torn with strife and suffering. Our journey is bound to be rough and hazardous, but with the sympathetic assistance and cooperation we have received from Dr. Helmkamp and the members of the faculty, we are bound to traverse successfully the stormy periods. Although our high school careers are about to end, the happy times and true friendships created during our all too-short stay will ever be cherished. I want to express our most sincere gratitude to Dr. Helmkamp, our class adviser, and the faculty for their expert guidance. To them we owe a life long debt repayable only by our success which will reflect honor and prestige upon E. F. A. - Yours sincerely, ROBERT HIRST. Therels room for wit in every ed tool.

CLASS WILL We, the Senior Class of 1941, being of apparently sound mind, with rubber ears and feathers on our feet, and knowing we are about to depart from the Academy forever, do make and publish this last will and testament. We bequeath l. To the Freshmen Class, an escalator to carry them to and from their classes. 2. To the Sophomore classes, an unforgetable reputation, knowing full well that it will take them at least three years to live it down. 3. To the Junior Class, our long list of Senior privileges which we trust they will enjoy as much as we did.

F. A., we, the Junior class, can now willingly but cautiously say that we are most anxious to take over the Senior duties, even though our First three years have passed too swiftly. We recall our struggles of the first year with horror, but under the able leadership of Robert Groff, as president of the student council, many interesting assemblies were given at George M. Diven. Our Sophomore year went with much more ease since we could now begin to feel "at home" in the Academy. Robert Valois, Esther Hood, Edwina Ford, and Henry Rogers were elected President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer respectively, IUNIGR CLASS Top, left to right: Robert Valois, Daniel Furey Bottom, left to right: Carol Cleveland, Esther Hood IUNIOR CLASS MR. WILLIAM WIPFLER Miss HARRIET WIXSON with Mr. John Colgan, and Miss Elizabeth Deneen encouraging our activities as advisors. Our first year as upper classmen placed an added responsibility upon our shoulders in all school affairs. Robert Valois and Esther Hood served a second term most efficiently as our President and Vice-President. Carol Cleveland acted as Secretary and Daniel Furey as Treasurer. Miss Isabelle Wixon and Mr. William Wipfler proved most able advisors for our Junior Day preparations, the high light of the year. We wish to thank them most sincerely for all the much-needed help they offered us during the past year. SOPHOMORE CLASS Top, left to right: Carl Krug, Robert Kinner. Bottom, left to right: Eleanor Stamp, Barbara Poppleton Now that our underclassmen days are ended, we can at last admit with what great timidity we entered the Academy. We can jokingly remind each other of the mistakes we made when we were freshmen and continued to make when we were sophomores. We can remem- ber the thrill of attending our first real social activities, the skating parties, dances, and carnivals. Weave had a grand time together and J , if w WW fb SOPHOMCDRE CLASS JAMES D.

STUDENT CGUNCIL During the past year, the Academy Student Council has proved itself a valuable asset in governing school affairs. Through the medium of the Fall Carnival, the Student Council obtained funds with which to purchase a Public Address System. The Council members also authorized plans for the painting of a mural on the walls of the auditorium. During the first half of the Council's reign, the officers were deli- gates to a conference in Binghamton where they discussed problems of student government with representatives of other schools.

S. S. P. A. convention in Syracuse, the Vindex won gf: G1 All New York Rating, and two articles won second place in the state competition-a feature story by Beatrice Kissane, and an seaitorial. The new term brought another campaign climaxed by our version of the balcony scene from "Romeo and Juliet". Thanks to Jimmy Matthews, Jack Calkins, George Givens, and other members of the staff, it proved to be highly entertaining. In March, staff members attended the Columbia Press Convention in New York City where the paper rated second place among school papers of the nation. A banquet in the spring brought to an end a busy, but successful year for us. Mas. JEANNETTE P.

In December, they published a much-needed book, "Songs and Cheers of Elmira High Schools" and dedicated it to those interests which foster school spirit. Teams were organized for a softball Play Day, and a camp weekend at Harris Hill for the club members and senior girls was planned. A banquet at the end of the semester, at which time the eligible members receive their letters, according to points earned during the year, climaxed the spring season. Much credit and thanks are due Miss Garrett for the increased interest in sports among girls since she has been here. Miss LORRAINE GARRETT . . . . Ruth Knapp Patricia Morrow . . Janice Ozard . . .

The purpose of these outings is twofold: to give the members recrea- tion, and to enable them to take pictures of the beautiful natural surroundings. The club has also held parties at various members' houses and at the home of Mr. Dobberstein. In the latter part of the school year, at their last regular meeting, the club held a banquet.

Discussions on different phases of photography have been held and the methods explained have been put into practice by the members. An improvised dark room in the basement of the girls' gymnasium has been the scene of classes in developing, printing, and enlarging pictures. A The keen interest on the part of Miss Garrett has given girls interested in photography an opportunity to pursue their hobby, a chance which they have been previously denied.

HCDRACE REED HI-Y Under the capable leadership of Mr. Robert Patterson and Mr. Sherman Hardy, the Horace Reed Hi-Y club has risen to high esteem among the student organizations at the Academy. Last May marked its first anniversary as an independent chapter and its first year of commendable scholastic and social activity. The club started off the year with a bang by sponsoring a member ship program in the auditorium at the Academy for which they secured an entertaining speaker, Corporal W. E. Cadwell. Represen- tatives from the club attended conferences held at Binghamton, Albany, Schenectady, and Cortlandg and two of its members were honored by being elected officers of the Southern Tier Council. The club also participated in the Pre-College Conference held at the Academy. A Halloween party, a Christmas party, plus a Co-ed Mixer held in February constituted the big social events of the year. Wc sincerely hope that the Horace Reed programs of future years will prove as satisfactory as those of the past two terms. MR.

Faculty Adviser . . . . Mr. With Mr. Emory Donelson and Mr. Sherman Hardy, as competent guides, the Alpha Chapter of Hi-Y of the Elmira Free Academy has ended another prosperous year of Hi-Y activity. Because of the establishment of a brother chapter, it was considered advisable to change its name from the Senior Boys, Hi-Y to the Alpha Chapter of Hi-Y. Last autumn prominent members were sent to the Hi-Y training camp situated at Hamilton. Club representatives were commissioned to attend Southern Tier Council meetings held at Binghamton and Cortland, the Albany Conference, and the Older Boys, Conference held at Schenectady. Various members also cooperated with other Hi-Y club representatives to help make the Pre-College Conference held at the Academy a success. During the year the club was honored by talks given by Mr. Lancraft and Dr. Phillips. Enthusias- tic discussions have been of great benefit to the members. We wish to compliment the club on its past activity and we truly hope that it will continue to be an ideal Hi-Y club based upon firm principles and traditions. MR. EMORY DONELSON William Crispin . .

The Hi-Y has sponsored candy sales in order to raise money with which delegate, Geraldine Barchet, was sent to the inter Hi-Y con- ference held at Erie, Pennsylvania, in February. At the Student Council Carnival a booth was furnished by the club. The girls have also planned a joint supper meeting with the Boys' Hi-Y, and participation in the Junior radio program.

When Joanne Loop was forced to resign her position because of unavoidable circumstances, Sally Moak became our new secretary. We have had successful campaigns to raise money, including several candy sales, and skating parties. At one of our suppers, Mrs. Robert Bidde gave an interesting talk on Boy and Girl Relations. We wish to express our appreciation to Miss Grace Miller, and Miss Marian Kelly, who have so generously given their time to help us to obtain a permanent foothold in Hi-Y activities. Miss MARION KELLY, Mrss GRACE MILLER E. H. S. BAND Mr. William E. Biery, Director Jane Satterlee--Drum Major In any kind of weather you can count on the Boys' Band to be at the football games, leading us in the school songs and perform- ing intricate manuevers on the field between halves. This year the band made the trip to Ithaca to support the team and encourage a fight for victory. Besides playing at the football games, the band participated in the Santa Claus parade and broadcasted for the Arctic League. They gave surprise pep assemblies at both high schools and planned a concert later in the year. Arrangements were made for the annual spring concert to be given at the Southside High School in May. The members of the band wish to thank Mr. Biery for his guidance and never-failing interest, and also wish to congratulate Miss Jane Satterlee for the fine exhibitions she gave as drum major.

SCHKAQE 1 ' f ARTHUR I-IIRST Coach Hirst, of English and German descent, started his educational training at Sumner and Madison grade schools in Syracuse. Later he matriculated at Central Vocational, and North High Schools. Strange as it may seem, he played no football or baseball in school, but his attentions were centered mainly on semi-professional baseball, and amateur wrestling matches. After graduation from high school, Mr. Hirst was employed at a typewriter plant for three years before enrolling at Springfield College for a physical education course. While attending Springfield he wrestled for one year, and lost in a final Eastern Inter- collegiate to a 145 pound Yale man in an over time match which Hirst surrendered on decision. Coach Hirst also pitched for Springfield, winning 6, losing 1 to Holy Cross whose hurler was Rosy Ryan, later with the New York Giants. Hirst injured his arm and gave up his aspirations for major league baseball. The Hrst football he played was at Springfield, as varsity end for two years, occasionally playing fullback. He was graduated in 1917. Later he became the assistant director of physical education at Syracuse University, and for eight summers he taught physical education at Orange School. In 1918, Mr. Hirst spent six months service at Camp Hancock. There he passed an examination for a transfer to a machine gun officers' training school just as the war ended. January, 1919 found Mr. Hirst a football coach at Binghamton Central High School, helping them win six games out of eight. Then in 1920 they had nine straight wins, and a score of 70-0 over Elmira. That score drew Mr. Parkeris attention to Art Hirst. He was brought to Elmira as director of physical education and the Elmira Schools' basketball coach. Although he played neither high school or college varsity basketball, he turned out ten championship teams, winning sectional honors. 1925-1926 the quintet won state Championship at Buffalo in a hectic tournament. In the twenty years, the Light Blue has won 102 games, tied ten, lost only 35. The live undefeated Elmira teams are: 1922-Won 7, tied 1 1928-Won 6, tied 1 1935-Eastern Interscholastic Champs-won 8 1936-7 straight 1939-Southern Tier Champions-6 straight 1920-Binghamton Central unbeaten-9 straight There was one winning streak in which 17 games were won-8 in 1935, 7 in 1936, and the first two games in 1937. Although, Hirst preferred baseball in his own school life, he said, "Football is the greatest sport in the world for high school boys". Art Hirst Day was held on Saturday, November 9th, 1940, when he received a tribute from fans as a token of appreciation. Again Coach Art Hirst, for all that you have done, Thank you-- ATHLETIC INSTRUCTQRS We the class of 1941, extend our congratulations to Miss Lorraine Garrett, Coach Arthur Hirst, and Mr. William Wipfler who have promoted another successful year of sports activities among Academy students. Social dancing classes, football, basketball, and track teams, plus keen intramural competition completed an athletic program of which we can be proud!

Of the 75 candidates who reported for practice in September only four were varsity holdovers, and it was these men that Art Hirst used as the nucleus around which he built a new team. At the end of the first game of the 1940 season with Elmira on top of a 47-O score over a rugged Eastwood eleven, Art Hirst knew he had a great season ahead of him. The following Saturday the Blue and White forces played a flashy Auburn team, and although outplayed, the visiting eleven held the locals to a 19-19 tie. Elmira journeyed to Jamestown on October 18 and met unexpected stubborn re- sistance from a strong Jamestown eleven. The game ended in a scoreless tie. Bob Hirst, versatile field general, was lost to the squad for the duration of the year as a result of an ankle injury which he sustained during the second period of the game. On their own gridiron the following Saturday, Elmira came back with a bang, defeating Corning North 13-0 with Bill Lewis sparking a ground attack which was superb. The Blue and White charges journeyed to Rochester on November 2 and whipped a favored Aquinas eleven 13-0 in a sea of mud. Once again it was speed merchant Bill Lewis toting the ball for the Blue and White. November 9 proclaimed Art Hirst Day in honor of our coach's 20th anniversary of service for the Elmira High Schools, was a day which will long be cherished in the hearts of those who were at the U. E. game. Elmira's long winning streak was snapped, however, by a 0-13 defeat at the hands of a superior U. E. aggregation. On Thanksgiving Day the Blue and White ended the season in a blaze of glory by humbling their age old rivals from the college town on the hill by a score of 13-0. A new man directly responsible for both tallies bobbed up from the Hirst ranks during this fray. His name, as you all know, is Lawrence Owen who has a great football career ahead of him. Thus ended another triumphal season of Football at E. F. A., with lettermen Bill Scwhenke, Sheldon, Lewis, Capt. Pete Morrow, Percy Brown, William Cieri, Bob Hirst, and Jack Biggs playing their last year for dear old E. F. A. Benny Botnick and "Nap', Blanchette are to be commended for the able assistance which they gave to Arthur Hirst. At the Banquet held at Parker Field Clubhouse the following were rewarded letters: Harry Furman, Raymond Manning, Booth Seymore, Robert Hirst, William Cieri, Percy Brown, Peter Morrow, Jack Biggs, Sheldon Lewis, Bill Lewis, Dominic Rossi, james De Lauro, Nick Petrusiw, Ed Gere, Bill Schwenke, Armond Malandra, Lawrence Owens. Mr. Hirst is expecting a good season next year because of the prospective return of many of the first stringers. In behalf of the Torch and students of E. F. A. we wish to extend our most hearty congratulations to coach Arthur Hirst who is completing this year his 20th season as coach of Light Blue activities.

BASKETBALL Early last December, when the basketball season was getting under way, the Elmira High Schools basketball team appeared doomed to finish in the cellar for the first time in the history of the sport in this school. This pessismistic outlook was the result of losing such outstanding varsity members as Peter Morrow, Bob Losinger, Emil Vogel, and Frank Zywicki who made up last year's varsity quintet. Another disaster befell the light blue when Vin Heher was forced out of the line-up with the recurrence of a knee injury sustained in the first work out. Conference activity got under way December 20th when the Light Blue invaded Bingo Central only to be grounded up 65-24. Again for the third straight year, Bill Garbor started in a blaze of glory that made him number one scorer at the close of the season. BASKETBALL Undaunted by their opening defeat, the E. H. S. cagers threw all caution to the wind and romped merrily up and down the planking of Ithaca Gymnasium and garnered a sufficient quota of points to insure themselves a victory because of the capable ball handling of Captain Jack Biggs. On January 16, the Hirstmen journeyed to Corning and handed the Orange and Black ive a 36-27 trouncing in a non-league contest. The following night the E. H. S. five played their initial home game and were defeated 31-30. The E. H. S. quintet led throughout the first two periods of the game, but a flashy last period bombard- ment by U. E. cagers was too much for the EHS's five and a last second foul shot was missed, thus paving the way for another close one for the E. H. S. five. The biggest upset of the year proved to be Elmirais decisive 32-27 victory over their arch-rivals, Binghamton Central. The crowd actu- ally turned out to see Billy Gabor turn on the heat, but instead saw Jack Biggs check Gabor, turning an ultimate defeat into a definite victory. The locals paced by Tom Ried and Babe Fitch were able to hand Bingo Central their first defeat in four years. On Friday, Feb. 21, the Elmira High Schools were playing their seventh game of the season. The number seven proved its worth when the E. H. S. basket bobbers took a hopeless, hapless Cortland aggre- gation into camp to the tune of 45-28. It was at this game that Tommy Reid, scoring ace of the local five, went beserk and estab- lished a new local scoring record for the year when he notched nine- teen tallies to pace the locals in their win which was their third in seven starts. The E. H. S. winning streak continued as the locals proceeded to down Ithaca 41-31. It was in this contest that the Blue and White made their long waited for debut into the first division. The Blue continued to ground up their opponents by winning their last three games by decisive scores, defeating Johnson City 27-20, U. E. 39-27 and Cortland 41-17. In the final contest Tommy Reed succeeded in matching third place in league competition. Tommy Reed and jack Biggs placed second on the all conference team. The team finished with a record of 7 wins and 5 defeats in league play and also defeated Corning Northside in a non-league fray.

James Jones The 194-0 Track Squad had its most successful season since Track was revived four years ago. The Squad had one meet called off because of inclement weather, and, in the remaining three, over whelmingly defeated Ithaca 78 to 25, lost a close one to U E and placed second at the Intersectional meet held at Cornell University The "40" team had two Sectional Champions, B111 Lewis, who won both the 100 yard dash and the 220 yard dash, and Howard Horne, who triumphed in the mile event. lNilliam Wirth and Marsden Stamp were runners up in the 44-0 yard run and the Pole Vault, respectively. Marsden Stamp was Captain of the "40" Squad and William Wirth was selected as the 194-1 Track Captain. The following were selected as lettermen: William Lewis, Marsden Stamp, William Wirth, Howard Horne, Carl Groom, Lawrence Wh1tt1Cf Nathan Schoonover, Richard Johnson, John Perry, William Schwenke, Anthony Pulos, Manager Robert Allen, Sheldon Lewis, Nick Petrusiw James Curry, James Delauro. The "4ll' team promises to be the best track team turned out by Coach Blanchette since the revival of Track because B111 Lewis, Howard Horne, Marsden Stamp, William Wirth are all returning We wish the team the best of luck, and hope that this season will be even better than the last one. INTRAMURAL SPCRTS ' The current school year has brought to the students of the Academy the most complete program of intramural sports ever attempted within the walls of this edifice. Mr. W. J. Wipfier, director of the program, with Student Manager Richard Fernan and James Cronin assisting him, created a schedule whereby the students were engaged in some sort of competition throughout the year. The program was opened in the fall when the football season was inaugurated. About 70 boys turned out for the Junior Varsity practice and took part in workouts for about two months. The boys who were divided into four squads, each using a different offensive system, were engaged in inter-squad games each night after school. With the coming of winter all boys' minds turn to basketball. So it was in our intramural program. About 175 boys participated in a two month program which included an Inter- homeroom tourney and an Inter Class match. The Inter-homeroom tournament was a double elimination affair with the rooms were separated into divisions. The Upper Class tourney was won by Room 312 when they conquered the Seniors from Room 305. There were 31 games played before the field was finally narrowed down to the two teams. The victorious seniors proceeded to challenge the faculty basketball team to a game. Their wish was granted and a capacity crowd jammed the school gym to see the students defeat the prexys 33-30 in an extra period. In the Lowerclass tournament 20 games were played before Rooms 117 and 118 met in the game to decide the championship. The final was a thriller throughout and the final score of 24-22 testifies to that. Room 117 certainly earned the victory they scored to become kings of their division. The five high scorers in the tournament wereg 1. Napoleon Shepard ........ C1171 54 2. Charles Dickinson ........ f312j 36 3. Phil Lipshutz ..... .. . 11185 28 4. Joe Dobranski ............ 13125 26 5. Abe Parker .............. f2l0D 26 The following activity in the winter schedule was an Interclass Tournament. Each team was represented by ten men who were chosen according to their merit by a committee con- sisting of Mr. Wipfler, R. Fernan, and officials jack Bauer and Charles Hall. The Sophomores downed the Seniors and the Juniors defeated the Freshmen in the opening games to go into the finals. In this title match, the Sophs showed their power and versatility by annihilating the Juniors 34-22. The captains of the respective teams were: Freshmen-Bud Sullivan Sophomores-Henry McLaughlin Juniors-Nick Petrusiw Seniors-Jack Fogarty The annual school ping-pong tournament followed the closing of the court activities. There were 98 entries in the contest and after the field had narrowed, we found Bob Hirst pitted against Phil Lipshutz, and Bill Hoppe matched with Babe Fitch in the semi-finals. Hirst took care of Lipshutz to enter the finals and then the big upset of the tourney came when Hoppe won 3 straight games to down the highly regarded Fitch. In the finals, the power and deceptiveness of his attack enabled Bob Hirst to conquer Hoppe in four games and become the new school ping-pong champ. Volleyball, a new and popular sport, was inaugurated in the boys' gym classes this year. The interest was so great in this activity that a league was formed, and for one month the students and faculty engaged in a total of twenty games while trying to prove their superiority over one another. The captains of the teams are: Freshmen-Mike Powers Sophomores-Dick Babcock Juniors-Jim Cronin Seniors-Bill Young Faculty-Mr. Parry Another new and energetic sport that has become popular during the past year is tumbling. There are about 50 boys in the school who are interested in the intricacies of that fine art and who made good use of the modern facilities in our gym for that purpose. John Flynn was named Student Leader of that activity. He directed the program during the season. Again spring has come and brought with it the sun, the rain, the green grass, and last, but not least of all-baseball. To the hundreds of boys in the Academy this meant an opportunity to roam in the outfield, scoop hard, sharp grounders in the infield, and to pitch and catch. With no available facilities for hardball, the Interclass softball league was again organized to satisfy the want of those who craved the popular sport. The league was divided into two rounds, and the Sophomores set about the difficult task of defending the title they wrested from the grasp of the Juniors last year. The concluding activity of a very busy year was the tennis tournament. About 50 boys were expected to participate in this match to try and dethrone Abe Parker who won the title by downing young Ed Semski in the finals of last year's tourney. Thus we have come to the end of another year of sport in this school. We want to congratulate Mr. Wipfier for the fine way in which he has conducted the athletic program for the past year. We would also like'to extend to the students of the school our appreciation for the splended way in which they cooperated in all the activities. 4 Www 'lf' FEATURES ffl?

Ah yes, a spot of light appears on the ball, and the first thing I see is a large courtroom. The defendant is none other than our own Ed. Gere, sitting solemnly in the presence of Judge Kenneth Woodward. Do you notice the gray streaks in Howard "Cicero" Horneis hair as he delivers his speech, entitled "This younger generation ain't what it used to ben, to the jury. Slowly the jury files out and comes back instantly with a verdict of "guilty", In comes James Brady, the jail tailor, to measure Ed for a black and white striped suit. Ed is now spending a few days at the jail for the criminal offense of speeding. The ball clouds now, but through the haze a night club looms in the crystal. The room is hushed! It's that great blues singer, Bobby Brown, accompanied by Harold Lewis and his swing band. Is that 'cjeannie with the Light Brown Hair" I hear? ASCAP is still going strong! Suddenly the orchestra stops and swings into 'iYou've Gotta Be a Football Hero", as that blond all-American, Bobby Hirst, enters surrounded by a bevy of beautiful debutantes. Do I recognize Ruth Butts in that group too? Ah yes!-Crash!+Bang! Waiter Bobby Bauman just tripped over the first table at the right, and under it he met Gomer Brinthaupt! The spot light now glows on the dance floor picking out that famous dancing team, "The Doty's'f. Looking into the kitchen, we find that well-known chef, Raymond Fassett. At the sink stands Frank Rolls deligently polishing apples for a living. The night club fades from view, and a very beautiful summer resort catches my eye. Here guests are met by hostess, Martha Taylor, followed by bellhops, Don Clark and Packy Brownlow. In the swimming pool are Marty Stamp and Ruth Knapp, the swimming team, about to go into their swan UD dive. Their audience consists of the movie celebrities, Shirley Hungerford fthe new oomph girlj, Tommy O'Brien fstar of "For Whom the Bells To1l"j, and Arthur Baker CHollywood's famous bachelorj. Esther Horwitz, the knitting instructor, is patiently trying to aid Arline Gunderman in finishing her blue sweater. Now the crystal ball hazes, never to lighten again. At least we are sure of one thing-the future is coming. N W' X if 4 Mb X ,.:." l,,- ADS ww W W mw- EZ www Eze if will Z , ww GED UlE'J'-lu'i':3 Ulm!
