Most sincerely we thank Ur, Hehnlqamp for his mani- fold services to our class. our school. and our country, "above and beyond the Call of duty." TO THE CLASS GF 1945: The following lines are so written, that as you read them, you may as I am sure you will want to, see in them a statement of principles to which you give your personal, loyal adherence: I am an American. . I believe in a government of law as set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. I believe in the equality of men before the law. I oppose all political and economic discrimination between men on account of race, color or religion. I stand for tolerance, free speech, freedom of conscience. I believe in democracy, the right to choose my rulers and to help formulate the laws that govern the citizens of this nation. I believe in safeguarding the rights of the minority. I believe in free education for all, according to ability and talent I believe in the right of each individual to a chance to develop the best that is Within him. l would see my country accept leadership, not to dominate, but to work with other nations, so that in my day and generation the world may move nearer a real community of nations in which international rivalry, hatred, and war will find no place. Il! 1 W I know that if I would see these principles in practice I must accept the sober responsibilities of citizenship and strive to set, if need be, the common good above my own advantage. I am mindful of the sacrifices during .170 years of American his tory, symbolized by Lexington, Gettysburg, Chateau Thierry Ardennes, and Tarawa. I have a deepening sense of the great responsibility that faces my nation both at home and abroad in the days when this war shall be over. I hope that I may do my part in solving our domestic problems and in achieving and maintaining a lasting peace among all nations if Ili ll' This is what I mean, when with pride in my national heritage I say I am an American. To all of you, to those who are still in school and to those who have left to join the armed forces, your teachers give their best wishes for happy and successful lives as honorable and useful citizens of our country Sincerely yours, Ma. Gee? 'lla Mr, Carly xxx- wish ln cxtcncl our gI'C1llL'Sl zulxmlimliml for his zlssucizlli :mfl curncst ccmccrn in our class. Ma.

Seam 61444 Jaiwf VVith the greenness of all freshmen, we meekly entered the halls of this school for the first on a sunny September morning, in 1941. Our first accomplishment as a class was to elect our officers: Franklin Lockwood, president, Virginia Reynolds, vice-president, Mary Ellen Maxcy, secretary, Thomas Keeton, treas- urer. The following year as sophomores, we elected -Iames Digby, Charlotte Jarvis, Virginia Benedict and Robert Landon to the ofbces of president, vice-president. secretary and treasurer, respectively. Increased interest and action in school activities, marked this, our second year in Elmira Free Academy. In the fall of 1943 we attained our primary goal, that of becoming "upper- classmenf' Happily we elected james Digby, Virginia Benedict, Gwen Evans and Robert Morris to guide us through our junior year. With great pride we displayed our red and white colors on -Iunior Day. That evening we had our junior Dance with Edward Sutter and Marjorie Nimtz as co-chairmen. After three years of struggling, we were finally promoted to the exalted state of being seniors. VVith the ease of veterans we carried out the routine of electing officers. To guide us through the year we chose Robert Morris, Ann Riddle. Patricia Hanechack, and Paul Sullivan, This was easily the best of our four years. At the Student Council Carnival, to the evident enjoyment of all, Richard Mace and Patricia McConnell reigned as King and Queen. We continued our successful year with a dance in March. This was followed by the skating party and the presentation of an almost-professional Senior Musical. Ann Biddle and Edward Sutter were the stars of "Best Foot Forward," our popular Senior Play. The supporting cast gave performances that deserved the phrase "VVell-done!" The most memorable occasion of the year, however, was Senior Day which included: assembly, year books, autographing, followed by the Senior Banquet and Prom. In a few weeks from now, this school and all the incidents that took place here will be pleasant memories. As we leave, we will take with us a fond remem- brance of four happy years in 'fdear E. F. A." -13 20 lif- ' L PAH. SL'x.L1vAN, PAT HANECHACK, ANN BIDDLE, ROBERT Mofuns X President ,,,,,, ,,,,,, . ,, Robert Morris Vice-President .. ,,,, Pat Hanechack Secretary , . ,, ,,,,, Ann Biddle Treasurer ,,,, Paul Sullivan Dear Classmates : Here we are. the graduating class of 1945, preparing' ourselves for our places in the world. Our future seems to be rather uncertain when we consider the times that we shall have to face. However, I am sure that the initiative of every student will give him the success that is always so diHicult to attain. Since we entered Elmira Free Academy in June 1941 many of our friends have left for other tasks. In the last two years a great number of our classmates have lett to answer the call of Uncle Sam. It. moreover, is very evident that many, many more will soon leave to do the same thing. Therefore on this occasion, meeting for the last time as a class. I. as your president. speaking' in your behalf wish to thank Dr. Hehnkamp, our faculty and our advisers for their encouragement while we were students these last four years. I also wish to thank our parents, who by their sacrifices have made our graduation possihle. Finally, I should like to offer my good wishes for a successful and happy future to each in the class of 1945. Good luck to you all and continued success to dear old E. F. A.

Last fall when we were told what was ahead of us, we looked upon it without a care in the world. As time progressed, we began to sense our predica- ment. Chasing snapshots, hunting write-ups, and finding spare moments in which to work were only a few of our troubles. This grew into quite a job, but I'm sure we all had a grand time in the compiling of our "Torch." Our sincerest appreciation for their guidance goes to Mrs. Hutchinson and Mr. Schwenkler who inspired us to persevere in our task. W'e also wish to thank our stalif for their able assistance and cooperation. Good luck to our successors, the Junior Class!

We, the business managers, in behalf of the Staff members, wish to express our sincere thanks to all those who helped in securing subscriptions, adx ertise ments, and sponsors so that our Torch could be financed.

Betty Hendricks Secretary .,,,, ,,,,,, B etty Coman Treasurer Paul Ford The high point of the social season for the E. F. A. Student Council was its annual Carnival held on january 13, in the school gymnasium, at which Richard Mace and Patricia McConnell wore the royal robes of King and Queen. Charles Evans, former president, who is now in the U. S. Navy, crowned the royal couple, and Vlfinfield Reese served as the master-of-ceremonies. As a result, the treasury of the council was even further increased to repre- sent a considerable fund, which we are leaving in trust to be used for a worth- while improvement in our school. Again we wish to express our most sincere gratitude to Dr. Helmkamp and Mr. Weaver for their kind and cooperative aid. VVith the wholehearted cooperation of the future members uf our Student Council, we are sure that they can have as successful a new year as ours. MR.

In the fall an initiation at Rossi's Tearoom brought eight girls into the club to increase its membership to twenty-four. Agora added to its treasury by sponsoring three booths at the Student Council Carnival. In March a dinner was held at Patsy Clates at which time several girls were accepted into the club.

This year, the club has been more active than during the past few years. During the first term, many of the members attended conferences at Utica and Albany. Moreover, one of its members was honored by being elected an oiiicer on the Southern Tier Council. The club also helped to begin the Friday night dances held at the Central Y.

In addition we have movies obtained from the various industries showing their methods of manu- facture and operation.

XVe were represented at the Student Council Carnival by a Flower booth for which the members made and sold corsages. Besides this, the Ushers spon- sored two skating parties both of which were attended and enjoyed by many students. Our activities were brought to a close by the animal spring banquet and dance.

The play is a Broadway smash hit about the troubles Bud Hooper gets into when he invites a glamorous movie star to the high school dance--and she really comes! The beautiful movie star and her tough, but bewildered agent cause a near-riot at VVinsocke. Hearing the movie star is really coming. Bud writes his girl, Helen, that he has the grippe and expects to have it until after the dance. However, in order that the faculty may not be angry, he tries to take the publicity-needing movie star to the dance as his girl. Then the real Helen arrives. The play is carried to a successful conclusion through the 1nirth- provoking actions of the cast. BUSINESS ORGANIZATION fo-Managers , , , ,,,, ,, ,, Richard Tucker, l-eo Kaplan MR.

The Elmira High Schools football team emerged from the 1944 season with a record of one victory and five losses in the six games that comprised its abbreviated schedule. However, the team, despite its poor showing on the Field, convinced its followers that it was made up of players that can be developed into championship material in future years. With only three weeks of training, the Blue eleven opened its season against a veteran Auburn eleven at Parker Field October 14. Chalk, Noyes and Smith played brilliantly and scored touchdowns for Elmira, but Auburn won, 27 to 18 despite a rally that netted 12 points for the Blue in the Final quarter. On October 27 the Blue and White team was host to Ithaca, its traditional rival, at Parker Field. The Ithacans, sparked by Fred Seither, one of the greatest ball carriers in the state, won 19 to 6 with 19 points tallied before Chalk man- aged to go over for Elmira's lone touchdown in the final period. The team played its first out of town game October Z8 when it invaded Rochester to oppose Aquinas. The Hirstmen showed a lot of spirit in this game and completely outplayed Aquinas in the second half after trailing, 19 to 0. Elmira scored 13 points in the second half and was beaten by one touchdown, 19 to 13. In the fourth game, November 4, Union-Endicott's Southern Tier champions, were guests at Parker Field, where the biggest crowd of the year saw the Orange Tornado roll up a 33 to 7 score with Tom Hurley scoring the lone Elmira touchdown. Elmira journeyed to South Syracuse to oppose Manlius, Central New York prep school champs on November 11. Manlius scored Z6 points in the first half before Elmira buckled down to hold them even in the last two periods. The final score read Manlius 26, Elmira 0. At Ithaca on November 25 the Blue team, faced with six straight defeats, arose to the heights after trailing at the half, 13 to 0. Three touchdowns were registered in the last two periods with Don Ceiri tossing a Hat pass to Dick Mace on the final play of the game and season to produce a Z0 to 13 victory that enabled the team to bow out in a blaze of glory. Academy students who won letters were Dick Mace, John Smith, Bob Lagonegro, Lewis Pirozolla, Bob Landon, Don Noyes, Dick Gryska, Stan Krouse, Allyn Hoifman, Douglas Huffner, Martin Kain, Jim Maynard, Bill Callahan, Ed Sutter, Bob Snover and Manager Norman Smith. -'Cf 7751- , walling 105 pound class - Charles Meshanic, E.F.A. cle- cisioned Dick Shelansky, E.F,A. 120 pound class - Danny Resavage, EFA. de- cisioned Bob VValker, E.F.A. 127 pound class-Pete Zawko EFA. decisioned Dick Canha, S.H.S. 135 pound class-Russ Hollenbeck, S.H.S. deci- sioned Bill Mechalko, EFA. 105 pound class-Charles Meshanic, E.F.A. defeat- ed Dick Shelansky, E.F.A. 120 pound class-G.

Emmy MWMWJ spam 30019 me an - Despite a decreased entry list, the 1944 boxing and wrestling tournament supervised by Art Hirst of the Academy and Mike George of the Southside, was one of the most successful in the history of the annual event. The Academy broke even with the Southside in pugilistic competition with each team winning three titles in the finals. The Southside won the wrestling honors. The Juniors captured the class championship in both boxing and wrestling by placing four champions in each division. A cheering crowd of 1,200 witnessed the boxing finals at the Academy with Pete Zawko and Russ Hollenbeck receiving silver medals for winning their third straight championships. They were the first contestants in the history of the event to win the silver awards. In interclass basketball competition between the schools, EFA and the Southside broke even with each winning four games.

You've worked hard in Victory gardens to in- sure an adequate food supply for our fighting men and our work- ers. You've taken part in all the campaigns that back the battlefront. You've realized how important it is to keep the home front in good working order . . . and you've eagerly stepped in to fill the gaps in the ranks whenever you could. We refer especially to the splendid way you are helping lszard's serve the community during this critical period. You high school girls have worked on our sales staff week-ends and during vacation. You high school boys have given your strength and energy to help replace those men who have gone in the service.
