To Dr. Helnikamp we extend our heart-felt thanks for his
unselfish efforts in our behalf. He has ever lent a willing ear to
our problems, and his wise counsel has proved invaluable. We
shall be ever grateful for having had the privilege of knowing,
and associating with him.
'70 Me lflemdazfi afffze Senior. Glafu:
1492 - 1942
Four hundred and fifty years ago, as you have heard many times
in school, Europe suffered from the loss of trade with the Spice Isa
lands of the Far Iiast because Constantinople had fallen into the
hands of the Turks. Then it was, that Columbus, seeking a new route
to the fabulous riches of those islands, crossed the Atlantic and un-
wittingly discovered a new world. America, peopled by refugees from
European tyranny, developed a strong and prosperous nation that
made its rich contribution to the world, not only in terms of mate-
rial goods, but also in the high ideals of religious liberty, political
freedom, and human equality.
Today, as in the days of Columbus, the world has again suffered
the loss of trade with the Spice Islands of the Far East. The fall of
Singapore and the islands of the East Indies has disrupted our eco-
nomic life. New threats arise out of the Pacific that jeopardize our
nation, its wealth, and its ideals.
There is no new world, in a geographic sense, to be discovered
in this time of crisis. But new horizons of human development beckon
to you and me. The call comes full and strong to each of us, to stand
fast, to fight for our heritage, and to pledge our all, not only to pro-
tect what has been given us, but to use it, so that after the turmoil,
confusion, and strife, mankind can reach new levels of historic achieve-
ment, in line with the ideals that have made America great.
You leave school in a year of war. livents crowd in upon us,
dark and foreboding. The future seems uncertain. Yet, if you and I
are true to th-e best that America has meant to the world during its
past history, an equally glorious future must be ahead. My best
wishes go with you.

A vote of praise is due Mr. Cady for
his cheerful understanding and helpful-
ness throughout our high school career.
For all he has done to make our stay
in li. F. A. a pleasant one, we express
our sincere gratitude to Mr. Kerlin.

All Seniors will agree that the four years spent at F. A. were really happy
ones, in spite of the fact that ours was the first class to learn the disadvantages
of a short noon hour. Some of us spent our Freshman year at Diven. The unfor-
getable event of that year was a dance sponsored by the Student Council.
The officers chosen to represent the Sophomore Class were Robert Valois,
Esther Hood, Edwina Ford, and Henry Rogers, president, vice-president, secre-
tary, and treasurer, respectively.
VVe were so pleased with their leadership, that Hob and Esther were re-
elected for our Junior Year with Carol Cleveland, secretary, and Dan Furey,
treasurer. VVith the arrival of junior Day, we felt. for the first time, like actual
As Seniors, we settled down to enjoy completely, the social aspect of school
life, and chose Ben Brown, liugenia Marks, Henry Rogers, and Doris Chamber-
lain, for our officers.
Initiated this year was the memorable Senior Prom, held December l9 in the
gymnasium. The class of l942 considers it one of the outstanding events of their
The Student Council Carnival was a great success. john Barnett was crowned
king, while Dorothy Cox reigned with queenly grace and beauty. A new idea
was adopted for the annual Senior Musical, a piano concert by Hans Helm.
On the evening of April 24, "The Crocus Hop" heralded the beginning of
the Spring activities of the Seniors. The Senior Play, an amusing comedy entitled
'tEver Since Eve," was one of the highlights of the year, starring jane Snyder
and Richard Markowitz. Senior Day brought our activities to an end with the
banquet and dance.
Our feelings of accomplishment are mingled with regret as Graduation draws
near. We will miss F. A. and will look back to our school years with pride and

Time marches on and we march with it. In a few short weeks
these halls will know us no more. No more will we be urged to "Get
to your room before the bell rings", no more will Mr. Parry herd
us, when tardy, into the ofhce, nor Miss Kellogg grudgingly hand us
an early excuse. Dr. Helmkamp may still lead the assemblies and
Miss McMahon guard her study hall, but we will not be there. Of
course, all these little attentions, so justly deserved by us at some
time or other, will, in a few short years, blend in with our fond
memories of school life at the E. F. A.
We will recall the day when as timid Freshmen we entered these
hallsg how we grew into carefree and fun loving studentsg how in the
course of time we rose successfully to the stature of Seniors. VVe
will long remember the friendships we have made when much we
otherwise have learned may be forgotten.
VVe owe much to our teachers and in your name I sincerely
desire to thank Dr. Hempkamp and the other members of the fac-
ulty for all that they have done for us.
None of us can know for sure what life i11 these uncertain times
may hold in store for us, but as good Americans we face that future
unafraid and with ambition. May success and happiness come to all

effectively. The pupils, teachers and other school officials have cooperated
A delegation, consisting of Dr. Helmkamp, Jean Clark, Marjorie lid-
munds, Jim Beecher and Hill Kinsman attended the Inter-Scholastic confer-
ence at Ithaca. From the discussions on school problems our delegates brought

The annual Fall Carnival, under the direction of Eugenia Marks and
Charles Brown, proved to be a great success. both financially and socially.
The proceeds from this have been set aside to buy materials for the mural
which will be placed in the hack of the auditorium: and to purchase frames
for the best pictures painted by the art students. These pictures xvill then be
hung in the school halls for all to enjoy.
The "May Mart" was very well attended. Co-chairmen were Marjorie
lfdmunds and Joe Saginario. Proceeds will be used to buy a motion picture
screen for the school, and to purchase more slides so that we shall be able to
sing the latest songs.
Student Council has also sponsored several school assemblies which
showed the talents of the various clubs, For their participation, clubs received
a gift. All clubs are under the supervision of the Club Advisory Committee.

The Vindex commenced an exceedingly successful v 'r with its usual a
campaign. Bob Thrasher entertained the Tag Day audience "th his displ , f
magic. In October the members of the staff attended the limpi' State c ool
Press Association at Syracuse. Mrs. Jeanette P. Deuel, able advisor ur p per,
was elected vice-president of the E. S. S. P. A. There they listened to ' struci
tive lectures and were awarded All New York Rating. An editorial wrftte by
Betty Giles won second place in the state competition.
At the close of the First term, the campaign for the next semester was be-
gun. The "Pep" assembly featured a skit called "The Lureh of Time" written
by Jack Calkins. At the Tag Day assembly, subscribers enjoyed entertainment
provided by Royal Denson, the ventriloquist.
ln March, staff members attended the Columbia Scholastic Press Conven-
tion in New York City, at which they gained valuable information about news-
The publication was handed over to the new staff in April. The annual
banquet in June closed the presses after a most successful year. Tliroughout the
year the staff concentrated especially on making the Vindex a living record of
Academy life, Various new ideas were tried in order to maintain the stand-
ards that a high school paper should follow.

The task of compiling a year book is undertaken annually by a group of
seniors known as the Torch Literary Staff. These erstwhile literary artists,
amazed at the seemingly endless accumulation of duties which the publica-
tion of the Torch entails, might well have become discouraged but for the
kindly direction and encouragement of Mr. Schwenkler and Miss Martin,
whose patience and understanding have been never-failing.
The staff will count their hours of work and planning well worth whilc
if their fellow students enjoy looking through this year's record of Academy

The primary purpose of Forum, interest and spirit in public speaking and
' parliamentary procedure, was stressed by the members and officers of the club
during the year.
Forumites held interclub debates on vital questions, presented a mock trial,
debated with Agora, and participated in panel discussions of the present crisis.
The club extended former policies by adopting a plan of having guest speakers,
and by petitioning the Student Council to award its debators letters. It also
attended the Hi-Y Round Table Discussions, and purchased Forum banners for
Forum expanded its social program this year with a public "old clothes"
dance with Agora, a hayride, and an Agora-Forum party in January. The club
traditionally culminates the year with an outing and banquet.

This past year, under the guidance of Mr. James Rupert, the Cinema Club
introduced a new plan for their meetings which were held each Friday during
the fifth period.
Besides holding a square dance, a spring picnic, and several parties, Cinema
Club members participated in regular discussions of current movies, and the
methods of judging these movies. Each week one person reported on inside
news direct from Hollywood, obtained from a pamphlet not available to the
public. Thus the members received first-hand information on odd facts about
the movie World.
To insure a comprehensive and interesting discussion of one outstanding
picture a week, Cinema donated theater tickets to members who viewed the
pictures critically and reported to the club.

The basic idea of Stylus Club is the study ot Art. During the course of
the past year, local artists have visited the club, demonstrating the various
mediums of expression in Art.
Projects have been planned to beautify the school, including a new bulletin
board for the main hall. W'e have also accepted the responsibility for the
continual care of the present board.
To do this successfully, the club needs the cooperation of each individual
in the school. The advertisements of clubs will be displayed to their best advan-
tage if they are both made and hung by the members of the Stylus Club.
Our social calendar has been very complete, including a Round and Square
Dance with the Cinema Club.
We wish to thank Mr. Ryerson for his kind guidance, and to extend to the
students of the Academy the services of our club.

If, during the past year, you have noticed a lad with a camera in hand
stalking his prey on the school grounds, the chances are two to one that this
"shutter bug" is a member of the Boys' Photography Club. At the beginning of
the year, their activities consisted of traveling to scenic places near Elmira to
take pictures. The tire shortage, however, has reduced their trips to a minimum,
and, as a result, the boys are now shooting their hlms on local subjects.
At the annual Student Council Carnival, the club operated a booth. Pic-
tures taken of the customers were developed and printed, and within a few
minutes delivered to the waiting subject.
In order to raise money and help the defense effort, the club held a paper
collecting campaign in January.
The annual banquet, at which the next year's olnhcers are elected, will be
held the last week in May.
The club is very grateful to Mr. NVilliam Dobberstein for his kind and
understanding guidance during the past year.

Perhaps the most representative, and certainly the most enjoyable of school
organizations, is the mixed choir.
At several social functions during the current season have been offered
t excerpts from its repertoire. Last fall the Choir proudly participated in the
Centennial Celebration at the A. M. E. Zion Church. A program was also
successfully presented for the March P. T. .-X. meeting.
The group is eagerly anticipating the May Festival in which it will repre-
sent its Alma Mater in both accompanied, and acappella chorals,
Students who enjoy singing and who may he clcpenrlcd upon to attend
rehearsals and social eiigagemelits are heartily welcoincrl to join the organization.

able years in Hi-Y. Last fall we started off an auspicious beginning by having
a big Halloween party at the "Yf' At Christmas time, we molded favors out
of parafin, which were sent to the hospitals. Miss Cullat, from the United
States Employment Office, spoke to us at our January meeting concerning
work after high school. On our program during February was a talk by Miss
Thurston, a home-economics professor. However the main event of our year
was the annual banquet for all Hi-Y clubs held this spring.

During the year the Sophomore Girls Hi-Y strived to maintain its purpose
ot building a fellowship of women and girls.
Early in the year Ada Mae Epstein and Marguerite Young were elected
as representatives to Inter-Club Council.
A Mother-Daughter banquet at which Mrs. Rollin Marquis, president O1
the Y. NY. C. A. was guest speaker, started off the activities. At a later meeting
Mr. Howard Shinn, general secretary of the Y. M. C. A. led a discussion with
the girls on. "Boy-Girl Relations." A "Come As You Are" Christmas party
and an 'All Hi-Y Skating' Party' with the boys Hi-Y constituted the social
events of the year.
ln various ways, the girls raised money to send Helen Parry as a delegate
to summer conference and Jean Swann as a delegate to the Mid-VVinter con-
ference at Cortland.

The club's most important duty is to usher for the school assemblies. It has
also proved its worth at other school affairs, including the Senior Play, Junior
Day, Senior Day, and special P. T. A. meetings.
This year the girls innovated two new features. The first of these was the
hostess' table in the main hall. Some girl is assigned to this table each period
of the day to direct visitors. The second and most exciting was the new uni-

Under the capable direction of Mr. John E. Colgan, the Senior Play of
1942, "Ever Since Eve," a comedy in three acts by Florence Ryerson and
Colin Clements, was produced.
"Ever Since Eve" is the mirthful story of Susan Blake, a Hcareer girlf' and
the troubles which beset two loyal musketeers, Johnny Clover and Spud Erwin,
Editor and Business Manager of the Preston High School 'tPenguin" when
Susan high pressures herself into the position of Assistant Editor. The
innocent enthusiasm of Susan and her side kick Betsy, Spud's younger sister,
entangles them all in an illegal pin ball game, almost bankrupts the 'tPenguin,"
gives them the measles, gets Lucybelle, the southern flirt, in trouble with her
family, and involves a young teacher and principal in a never-to-be forgotten
scandal. Mrs. Clovcr, Johnny's mother, saves the day and Susan becomes the

Wfe, the class of 1942, take this section of our book to
give our heartiest thanks to our athletic instructors, Miss
Davis, Mr. Hirst, and Mr. Xvipfler. All of us have spent
many enjoyable hours under their guidance and we feel
sure that by their kindly assistance they will have enabled
us to stand by the principles of true sportsmanship, which
they have taught us.

Handicapped by the loss of almost his entire 1940 eleven, which suffered
only one defeat at the hands of a highly rated U. E. eleven, Coach Art Hirst
molded a new team which finished the late grid campaign with three wins and
The season's opener with Syracuse Eastwood revealed flashes of fine ball
playing which was not, however, too reminiscent of former light blue charges.
Elmira came out on top with a score of 14-0 which proved that talent was not
lacking in our midst.
On the following Saturday the Hirstmen journeyed to Auburn and re-
ceived their initial setback of the year at the hands of a superior Auburn
aggregation by the not too decisive score of 12-7.
The following week saw the locals playing host to an over-rated james-
town squad which held last year's outfit to a scoreless tie. Elmira trailed the
invaders in a bitterly contested struggle, until the fleeting minutes of the game
when Elmira pushed over their lone tally after a sustained drive. Kirkendall
calmly booted the extra point which spelled victory for the home forces.
Taking advantage of a week's rest, the light Blue were at their peak
when they played host to a stubborn Aquinas eleven and handed them a severe
lashing to the tune of 20-0. Bill Lewis' speedy running and Larry Owen's line
crashing featured the win.
Elmira received its severest setback of the current gridiron campaign at
the hands of a superior U. E. eleven on the latter's Field, the score being 32-6
with Elmira unable to cope with the experienced pigsters of the Orange and
On Thanksgiving Day, despite beautiful runs by Bill Lewis who dashed
70 and 80 yards respecgvely for touchdowns, it just wasn't a Blue and VVhite
day, for both these sprints went for naught and the game ended, likewise the
'41 season, with Elmira's arch rivals, the Little Red from Ithaca, on top of
a 13-12 score.
This yeaifs football eleven didn't end the season with a seven game win
streak. Neither did it go untied nor unscored upon. However, it was a team
which played straight heads up football all year. Despite constant setbacks
which were in many cases by very close margins, they came thru with a rec-
ord of which we can all be proud. Winnixig games isn't everything, but where
there's spirit and fight and cooperation you're sure to have a team such as
ours was this year.
Prospects for the next football campaign are the brightest in years. Since
only six regulars, Armand Malandra, Al McCarthy, Nick Petrusiw, Bill Lewis,
Dick Poppleton and Bob NVilliams are being graduated, this leaves five var-
sity men plus capable reserves rgturning.
The annual banquet at the Parker Field Clubhouse saw the awarding of
letters to the following gridders: Bernard Trifoso, Captain Armand Malandra,
Nick Petrusiw, Mario Malandra, Richard Poppleton, Robert VVilliams, Al
McCarthy, Lawrence Owen, Williain Lewis, Robert Kirkeudall, Henry Rohver,
James DeLauro, Peter Dickinson, Harry Hoffman, Kenneth Fish, Francis
Fernan, Carmen Sorino, John Karski, Joe Brown, Carl Mustico, Ballard
Huntley, Tom Reid, Francis Sayles, John Knapp and Gordon Dinger.
Congratulations are due Benny Botnick and Nap Blanchette whose val-
uable advice and assistance to Coach Hirst were greatly appreciated.
As a closing thought, may we express the best of luck and success to the
next E. H. S. football eleven. The Torch wishes to compliment Coach Arthur
Hirst on his excellent ability to mold such a fine team, and express the hope
for a successful season.

One of the best basketball teams in years was produced in this 1941-42
edition which garnered the splendid record of nine victories against three defeats.
In league competition the Hirstmen topped all other teams in both the
offensive and defensive departments, thus showing their dual strength. Elmira
also received an invitation to compete in a sectional tournament at Little Falls,
N. Y. but because of school regulations, this had to be refused. Having as a
neucleus Torn Reid, George Fitch, and Leo Makovitch, Coach Hirst added lanky
Nap Shephard and Ed Semski and the "jayvee" graduates, Chet Malanoski and
Dewitt Smith to mold a formidable aggregation of which the Elmira High
Schools might well be proud.
The initial game against Cortland provided hopes for a successful season,
when the Light Blue five swamped the Maroon 59-25. George Fitch went wild
in this game scoring 19 points.
Our joyfulness was short-lived, however, for the following week Bingham-
ton Central came, saw, and conquered by the count of 38-33. Another Bing-
hamton team was our opponent in the next game when the Histmen gained
partial revenge by defeating Binghamton North 43-42.
Three more victories were added in rapid succession-the first over
johnson City 37-32, the second over Union-Endicott 29-26 and the concluding
one over Ithaca by the overwhelming score of 59-24. Elmira seemed to be
traveling with the speed of a championship team eager to avenge its defeat
At the beginning of the second round the Blue and VVhite continued their
winning way, this time against Cortland whom they took into camp to the
tune of 66-I6!
The following week Coach Hirst took his charges to Binghamton for the
Central game. In a spectacular contest, Central again triumphed 44-37. This
second loss did not discourage the team, however, since they triumphed over
Binghamton North 44-33 for their seventh victory.
Johnson City inflicted the final defeat when they topped the E. H. S. Quin-
tet in an extra period encounter 43-41. The Blue and VVhite then concluded
their season with two more triumphs, one over Union-Endicott, and the last
over Ithaca. The Orange then fell 52-39, whereas the Little Red received a
Individual scoring records saw the Light Blue place three men among the
Hrst ten leading scorers, Tom Reid ended the season in second place with 138
points. An interesting sidelight is the fact that George Fitch was the foul king
Nap Shephard, lanky center, ended up in the seventh place with a total of 92
point. An interesting sidelight is the fact that George Fitch was the foul king
of the league leading with 41 points.
Prospects for next year's edition are bright, with only Tom Reid and
Nap Blanchard not returning to action.
The Torch Staff wishes to extend its congratulations to Coach Hirst and
to the members of his team on their line playing.

The 1941 edition of the track team had a total record of one meet with
L'nionvl-Indicott, losing hy the overwhelming score of 70-34. The other sched-
uled meet with Sayre was called oh' heeause of unfavorable weather. However,
the Hlanchette charges attended an invitation meet at Syracuse. and competed
in the sectional contest at Parker Field.
In the latter tournament, Bill Lewis, previously undefeated sprint champion,
met his match in the dashes and finished in second place. Howard Horne also
finished in second position in the mile run, while the bright spot was furnished
hy Marty Stamp who carried ofl' the pole vaulting honors.
In the invitation tournament at Syracuse, the Light Blue hnished in fifth
place out of a total of twenty teams, representing high schools from all over
the state. lilmira shared the spotlight with two spectacular victories.
The first was the relay victory. The team, composed of Jimmy DeLauro,
liill VN rth, Larry Vklllttlcf, and lill Ltwis, outdistanccd all other entrees to
win the Post-Standard Trophy. The second victory was lllarty Stamp's record-
making' jump in the pole vaulting contest. Marty's ahility carried him to an
ll ft, 6 in. triumph, one foot higher than the previous mark.
Thus ended the track season with the outlook for l04Z uncertain, The
fact that Lewis, llorne, Stamp, and Vliirth are gone, ofisets the return of
DeLauro, Vl'hittier, and a few others. However, Nap Blanehette may he able
to develop some championship calihre out of the numerous candidates.
The Torch extends its sincere appreciation to the track team and Nap
lllanehette, and hopes that the l942 squad will meet with greater success.

The second year in the introduction of a complete schedule of intra-mural
activities saw a season as successful as the previous one. These sport programs,
inaugurated by W. J. VVipHer, physical director, were 11ot only a great source
of enjoyment to the participants, but they were also tools in keeping ht the
youth of America. Mr. VVipt1er, ably aided by Student Manager James Cronin,
made a vast sport program available for more than 400 students. Both Mr.
VVipHer and james Cronin should be heartily commended for their excellent
work. Commencing early in the Fall at the beginning of the football season,
Mr. Wiptler took charge of his junior varsity candidates and followed last
year's plan, dividing the squad into teams with different formations. Inter-squad
games were waged after school.
Then King XVinter marched in and with him came the basketball intra-
mural league. First, was the freshman inter-homeroom struggle with Room
104 Hnally finishing in top position. Then the upper league composed of the
sophomore, junior, and senior homerooms started a double elimination tourney.
In the finals Room 216 and Room 313 were arrayed against each other. and,
in a bitterly fought contest, Room 313 scored a decisive 29-16 triumph for
Following this tournament came the Inter-Class contest with the players
chosen by Mr. Vtfiptler, J. Cronin, and the referees. Selection was based upon
ability and conduct. The Juniors who had won last year were ceded favorites
to repeat and gave evidence of this by marching to the finals with three
straight triumphs. However, a small but fast-passing Sophomore five rose to
great heights to stem the junior quintet and go on to win the title by a 33 27
count. Casey and Brown. each with ten points, were mainly responsible for
the Sophomore victory.
Thus ended the basketball program, and with Spring on its way in. ping-
pong flashed into the spotlight. Secdings were as follows:
1. Norman Hoppe 4. VVinston Coleman
2. Phil Lipshutz 5. Abe Parker
3. Babe Fitch 6. Stuart Ghee
Starting with over 60 entrees, the held eventually narrowed down to the
finalists, Norman Hoppe and Babe Fitch. This time, Hoppe who was runner-up
last year, refused to be defeated and decisively trimmed Fitch 21-10, 21-17, 21-18
to become school champion.
VVith Spring on full bloom, the students' fancies lightly turned to thoughts
of softball and thus the Inter-Class softball tournament was reborn. The
Seniors, softball winners last year, trotted out again to attempt to win two
years in succession. The captains of the respective teams are:
Freshmen .... B. Sawyer Juniors ...... .... . J. Nelson
Sophomore .......... M. Powers Seniors ............. F. Libertore
The concluding intramural sport activity was the annual tennis tournament.
Abe Parker, twice champion, was given top seeded position and, with Ed
Semski, twice runner-up, and Eric Bystrom the tournament will be an
interesting one. Parker beat Semski last year when he WOl1 three sets to his
Mr. Wipfler should be congratulated for his excellent work in directing
these school activities. VVe wish to extend our congratulations to Jim Cronin,
Student Manager, for his able assistance and hard work, and last but not least
to the students themselves for their cooperation and participation. May the
intra-mural activities continue for years to come as an aid and diversion to the
E. F. A. students.
