DR, H ELM KAM P
There is an old saying that if you want something clone.
ask a busy man to do it. Besides tackling a full-time job as our
school principal, Dr. llelmkamp has given up his personal
pleasures and devoted his leisure time to the many tasks connected
with the war effort. VYe admire and respect him for performing
these duties so well, but we shall remember him most for the
personal interest he has taken in us, for his kindness and his
patience, and for his genuine friendliness towards us.
TO THE MEMBERS OF THE SENIOR CLASS:
VVhen, in September 1939, you entered the Academy as carefree,
happy freshmen, Hitler was invading Poland. That event must have
seemed afar off and of little moment to you then. You were juniors
when the japanese launched their sudden attack on Pearl Harbor.
However eager and patriotic your response,-and it was both,--you
must still have felt that the war was primarily the job of older folks,
that perhaps the conflict would be over before you had a real chance
to take part in it. But so swift has been the rising tide of events, that
today, even before you finish your schooling, the pressing needs of
total war require our government to reach down into the 'teen age
group and call you to an active part in the struggle.
Already, many of your comrades are in the armed forces. Some
during the past year have seen service in Africa and the South Sea
islands of the Pacific. Hardly a boy among you but expects to join
one of the armed services in june. Hardly a girl, but sees opportunity
for service, immediate and imperative, For all of you, normal peace-
time hopes and ambitions must wait upon the performance of war
time tasks that brook no delay. A '
To extol youth and to tell them that they are the hope of the
future, has, in the past, been a usual part of the sometimes empty
rhetoric of Commencement Day speeches. There is no need to tell you
that opporunity and duty wait upon you, here and now, with clear
and incisive meaning. A task comparable to that given to young men
and women in 1776 and 1861 faces you. May you prove worthy of our
great historic past and meet the challenge of our day.
Your teachers wish you God-speed, great courage, and indomitable
will in your efforts to win the victory, a full measure of equity,
tolerance, and mercy to help establish a just and lasting peace. May
the moral purpose that sustains you during the coniiict be motivated
by the desire to "raise a standard to which the wise and honest can
'fjoyous you too launch out on trackless seas
"Fearless for unknown shores . . ."
With a deep and abiding confidence that America is gathering the
strength of her youth to fulfill a noble destiny,
"Away 0 Soul! . . .
Sail forth-steer for the deep waters only ,....
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go,
And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all."

In 1940 we timidly entered the halls of the Elmira Free Academy for the
first time. "Green" to this new life, we elected James Wilson, for president,
Barbara Allison, vice-president, Maxine Fairchild, secretary, and Arthur Shoe-
maker, treasurer of our class. As "freshies" we weren't very active, but soon
caught on to Academy life.
We became more active in school affairs in our sophomore year, under the
leadership of Robert Kinner, Eleanor Stamp, Barbara Poppleton, and Carl
Krug. Skating parties, dances and carnivals were high lights of our second year.
In 1942 we at last became "upperclassmen," proudly bearing the title of
juniors. With Ray Murray, Virginia Gerrity, Barbara Poppleton, and Robert
Kinner as our officers, we took an active part in school activities. The most out-
standing event of our Junior year was Junior Day, on which we proudly dis-
played our class colors.
A year later we attained our goal. As leaders of our Senior class, we chose
Chester Malanoski as president, with Virginia Gerrity, vice-president, Marjorie
Edmunds, secretary, and Robert Swart, treasurer. During this year, by far our
most successful, two Senior dances took place, the "One O'Clock Jump," in
December, and the 'iSpring Fever Hop," in March.
The Student Council Carnival was another popular event, with James XVil-
son and Virginia Gerrity reigning as King and Queen. The Senior Class pre-
sented something different in musicals this year with their 'C-Xnnual Senior
Frolic,'l at which cartoon movies were shown. '
Barbara Poppleton and VVilliam Cassada were the stars in our very successful
Senior play, "The Nut Farmf'
The high light of the whole year, however, was Senior Day, followed by
the Senior Banquet, a memorable event which the members of the Senior Class
will never forget.
Now, at the close of our last year, and with the future uncertain, we look
back with fond memories upon four pleasant years spent in these beloved halls
of the E. F. A., "so dear to us always."

As our final school term draws tu a close, we, the members uf the
Class of 1943, will he ahle to recall four juyous years spent at the
Academy in quest of knowledge.
Our search was not in vain. At the Academy we were introduced
tu Dr. Helmkamp. the principal, and members nf the faculty to whom
we will always he indehted fur their unfailing guidance and inspiration.
During nur course of study at sehuol, our country was thrown
intu the present, critical, life and death struggle against aggression.
Our ranks were gradually depleted. and our hearts gn nut to all those
whu ent shurt their sclwul career tu help make the wurld sale fur
demueraey. XYe wish them luck and Godspeed.
Xow. as we emhark on tn the sea of life, may success and gum!-
furtune eu hand in hand with us intu the future.

Agora Debating Society, which was organized to give girls experience in
the art of debating, has been very active during the past year. Several debates
were held at the regular meetings, and one debate with Forum was held.
Aside from the debating experiences, several social events were held. New
members in the fall were welcomed at a banquet at the Candle Light Tea
Room, while those joining in March were initiated at a party at Rossi's. Mrs.
Albert Helmkamp gave several readings at one of the meetings. The sale of
li. F. A. class pins proved a successful venture.
Agora wishes to express thanks to Miss Xlartin for her very kind and

The membership of the club was eut to a minimum due to the war-time
requirements placed on the students. Lack of manpower has required that many
students take up positions in order to help quench this vital need.
Consequently the group was small and aetivities few. Regular meetings
were held 'l'hursday evenings. After the eluh business was terminated, dis-
1 enssions were held concerning topics of the day. Swlllls and skating parties
were among the clulfs activities held during the year.
Under the. line supervision of Mr. Patterson and Mr. 'llrnman, advisors,
the Horace Reed Hi-Y enjoyed a sueeessful term.

.X novel method has been tried this year in membership grouping. The first
group is composed of girls in the Senior and Junior classes and the second group
uri the girls in the Sophomore and Freshman classes.
Our objective as Christian women and girls is devoted to better realization
of common ideals, of personal and social living, and better citizenship.
This is attained through discussions on boy and girl relations, personality,
wartime jobs for high school girls, social, athletic and educational activities.
:Xt a community party which we held we gained a clear and better understanding
of our city government.
Our gratitude is herewith expressed to our advisors, Miss Yeda Spohn,

Academy Orchestra plays in making the school assemblies interesting. Their
fine performances make these assemblies much more enjoyable than they
ordinarily would be.
The orchestra has been greatly enlarged this year by the addition of not
only a number of new musicians, but also by the addition of new music.
Much of the success and ability of the orchestra is due to the capable
direction of Miss lilizabetll Park, who has so admirably taken the place of
the former advisor, Mr. Sehaad.

Prospects were indeed bright when Coach Art Hirst assembled his football
warriors for the 1942 grid campaign. Eight varsity lettermen plus capable second
team reserves returned -to give the Light Blue a claim to the mythical Southern
Tier championship, with a record of three wins, one reverse, and two tie
affairs. Backfield material was the highlight with Coach Hirst building two
complete backfields for alternate duty.
The inaugurating game against Syracuse Eastwood proclaimed a banner
season for the Light Blue and the 46-7 rout inflected upon the helpless Syracuse,
gave impetus to the hope that Elmira would continue along the road to victory.
The whole team coordinated perfectly with the backfield running rough-shod
over their opponents, rolling up 24 First downs in the process.
The following Saturday, on a rain-soaked Parker Field gridiron, the Light
Blue encountered trouble in the person of Coach Ki Young's Auburn eleven and
when the final whistle sounded, the game was a dead-lock at 20-20. Highlight of
the contest was Semski's 67 yard Touchdown jaunt along the sidelines.
The Blue and White continued their momentarily-interrupted victory march
on Oct. 24, when they met, saw, and conquered an inspired and aggressive
Corning Free Academy team 13-7. Larry Owen smacked the Hirstmen with
his smashing line-bucking which resulted in both touchdowns.
On the following week, the Light Blue journeyed to Rochester, and with
Larry Owen and Ed Semski leading the way, scorned their third victory on
the long end of a 13-6 count. The loss of over one hundred yards via the
penalty route stopped the frequent Elmira scoring threats.
Then the victory bubble burst when on the following Saturday, the orange
and black-clad warriors of Union Endicott invaded Parker Field and toppled
the Hirstmen from the ranks of undefeated teams by the slimmest of margins,
7-6. Owen's 25 yard run accounted for the Elmira score but two conversion
attempts failed. The Light Blue outplayed the U-E Tornado in both the passing
and rushing departments but lacked the necessary spark for triumph.
The annual Thanksgiving Day encounter with Ithaca on the foreign grid-
iron marked the final appearance of the Blue and White and resulted in a
scoreless tie. The contest was a bitterly fought affair with the Hirstmen's only
serious scoring threat stopped by a penalty. Huddle's booming punts consistently
set the Elmira lads back and was a definite factor in the outcome.
Thus the Hirst charges closed another successful season, which, considering
this present war, maybe the last for some time. Congratulations to all the
players here and those in the armed service plus good luck to the latter.
Coach Hirst and his able assistant trio, Ben Botnick, Nap Blanchette, and
Bill NVipfler deserve praise for welding this but-once defeated pigskin eleven
into the coordinating team it was.

Under the capable leadership of Coach Nap Blanchette and Captain Larry
VVhittier, the 1942 track team opened with highly successful victories over
Sayre and Ithaca. Sparked with these two victories the boys traveled to Union
Endicott for their third and Final meet. U. E. who was sporting one of its
better track teams beat the Napmen in an up and down meet. The last meet
of the year was held at Union Endicott, who were hosts to the conference
track meet. U. E. again monopolized the first honors, while Ithaca galloped
away with the second place red ribbon,
After the conference meet the trackmen lost no time in electing Robert
"XVashy" Allen, now with the United States Air Corps, and Bob Keegan as
co-captains for the 1943 track season.
With such regulars as Captain Keegan, Quent Doolittle, Dick Summers,
Thad Carpenter, Bob Whittier, Russell Ghee, Jack Pitcher, Allen Russell,
Bob Crispin, Bob Maynard and Art Held, back for another season, the situa-
tion as far as manpower is concerned, is bright. .Although the'O.P.A. has a
ban against chartering buses for athletic purposes, Coach Blanchette is optimis-
tic as to having dual meets with nearby cities.
Track is one of the finest conditioning sports today, and it is hoped that
a large turnout of boys will be present at practice. The national physical fitness
committee has stressed the point that it is the job of every boy to put himself
in the top physical condition so he will be prepared to enter the armed forces
prepared for everything.

With more than a year of shortages and curtailments, even sports have
been affected in more than one way. Basketball between E. F. A. and out-oi-
town schools was discontinued this year because of the difficulty of securing
proper and convenient means of transportation for the players.
To offset this, a broadened and extended program of intramural sports
was mapped out by Physical Director William Wiptler. At the top of these,
was basketball. The games played were between school homerooms, with the
champions of the underclasses matched against the winners of the upperclasses.
In this series Home Room 312 came out victorious with Captain Winston
Coleman setting a blazing pace by scoring a total of 72 points throughout the
series. Joseph Marino of Home Room 117 led the scoring in the Freshman
league with 42 tallies. The high scorers were:

In late spring of 1942, softball took the limelight with games played be-
tween the classes. In the final game the juniors overcame the sophomores in a
hard played game. Chester Malanoski and Ed Semski formed the batteries and
led the way to victory for their team.
This spring and winter many E.F.A.ers were busy training themselves for
tussles and matches in wrestling and boxing. For the first time in a number of
years, the Physical Education Department inaugurated these sports in the extra-
curricular activities program. The boys were classified in various weight classes.
Many of the boxers and wrestlers competed with contestants from the Southside
XVith the advent of physical training for war, Mr. Wipfler and Mr.
Hirst have been extremely busy in the past year getting the boys of E. F. A.
into a better physical shape. Our hats are tipped to them.
