The above draw- ing of an orchestra conductor's hands is symbolic of the subtle yet im ortant influence music has on our lives. A conductoris hands uietl P q Y guide his orchestra, bringing out the best in both musicians and music. Similarly, music forms a background to our daily life, expressing far more eloquently than Words our deepest emotions. ' Throughout this book other drawings will be found which illustrate some of many Ways music enters into our lives. 4We hope they will add to your enjoyment of this record of our days here.

Her many years of loyal service here at the Academy in teaching and advising students deserve more praise than we can possibly convey. She has unconsciously acted as an inspiration and example to innumerable students who have been in her classes or benefited by her guidance. Her implicit trust in us has given us new confidence in ourselves. Her constant good humor and cheerfulness cannot be commended too highly. We want to take this opportunity to thank Miss Wixon for all these things and to give her our best wishes for her future health and happiness. gacuffy xl f .fl Q DEAR DR. HELMKAMP: It is with strangely mixed emotions that now, after four long and pleasant years, we are preparing to leave the Academy for good. Certainly one of the most widespread and universal of these is a feeling of gratitude to you for the many things you have done on our behalf. Your kind and cooperative leadership, your friendliness and interest have impressed us deeply. For these, and all the other things you have so willingly done for us, we wish to thank you. Sincerely yours, THE CLASS or 1947 To THE NIEMBERS or THE SENIOR CL.-XSS or 1947: Some years ago in a speech before an Academy assembly, State Senator Chauncey B. Hammond used as the theme of his discourse, the legend found on the stub of a railroad ticket: HNot good if detached? Because it impressed me at the time, has stayed with me, and is appropriate to this occasion, I want to pass on the message of the railroad ticket stub to you. As human beings we are social by nature. The church, the school, the home, our clubs, our class associations, our jobs are social in character. Only as we learn to interact with this environment, with moral insight. do we function successfully. If we are anti-social, if we put our selfish, personal interests above the common good, we doom ourselves to ultimate failure, we do not measure up to the best that is in us, we are Knot good if detachedf' That which is true on the personal and individual level applies also to us as a people and a nation. The world has become increasingly a single social entity. What happens in New York has repercussions in India and China, what happens in Moscow may vitally affect your life and mine. As a nation, we have a responsibility to see that the lamp of liberty is not dimmed. Unless all men everywhere learn to enjoy the freedoms that are basic to our culture, they will not long endure for us. In that task, too, America is Hnot good if detached." Here in school, you have been led to recognize the importance of these individual and national responsibilities. You have learned, Qsome through hard experiencej that we do not live to ourselves alone, that in everyday living we are 'cnot good if detachedf' May these basic lessons in democratic living go with you through life, may you grow in wisdom and in the stature of your moral outlooks as good American citizens.

For some of us commencement will be a brief pause before we continue our education at other institutions. For others it will he the end of schooling. What we have accomplished together as classmates will live in memory. Vlfe will always be grateful to our teachers for their patience and their encouragement during our happy high school days. To Dr. Helmkamp goes our sincere thanks for his un- failing assistance in making these years a joyful and worthwhile experience. Let us keep green the memory of friends and schoolmates who served in the armed forces during the war, particularly those who did not return but gave their lives so that the freedom we enjoy might be preserved. To my classmates, I wish to express my personal appreciation for the fine cooperation you have given to me and the other officers during our senior year. Sincerely yours, Louis Pmozzoro Senior Class History The fall of 194-3 was one of the first important landmarks in our advance through life, for that fateful season saw the' beginning of our high school career. Now we were living! Unfortunately, the days ahead were not all a bed of roses. Bewilderment plagued us. While still wondering about things, we managed to elect John Zures, presidentg Pat Dunn, vice-president, Jack McConnell, secretaryg and Ann Penney, treasurer. We ended the year with a skating party at Grotto. As Sophomores we began to show some of the spirit which singled out our class as a precedent-breaker. We held the first Sophomore Day seen in E. F. A. for many years past, and in the evening there was the Sopho- more Dance. The dynamic quartet which steered us through this year consisted of Sam Horwitz, Nancy Cum- mings, Nancy Marks, and Bill Nagle, serving as president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer, respectively. Another skating party was held during our second year. Our Junior year also was unusual. We presented the first Junior Play in Academy history, ulVliss Alma Materf, Mr. Weaver, Mr. Ekes, and Miss Park deserve much praise for putting the show over the top. Jim Boss, Ann Penney, Doris Jacobs, and Louis Pirozzolo, in the usual order, were the duly elected officers of our junior year. Other activities that year included the Thanksgiving dance, the uTurkey Trot," and the traditional Junior Day with the Junior Prom in the evening. How grown-up we felt as we strutted around wearing those red and white ribbons on our shoulders. At last the day came when we were promoted to the exalted ranks of seniors. We began the year by electing the officers which appear on the opposite page. Things were rather quiet until February ll- when the Student Council Carnival was presented. Marty Kain and Pat Vreatt made a handsome couple as King and Queen, and Lou Pirozzolo displayed some hidden talents along the modeling line. A Senior Musicale to end all musicales was given by the Torch Business Staff. The uGay Nineties Revue," as it was called, starred the L'Bowery Boys," the 'Tloradora Flappersf, and John Knapp and his Lamplighters. Miss Park and Miss Van Duyn are to be thanked for their kind help with the program. 'T I The next big event was the Senior Play, '4Nothing But the Truthf, which star- red two members of our Junior Play cast, Shirley Havens and Beno Parlo. Mr. Col- ganis line coaching contributed greatly to the success of the performance. Broadway had better look to its laurels! . - ' ? ' I C. .- L, - Then, the crowning glory came with Senior Day! We paraded through the halls, looking extremely important. Our blue and white colors accompanied us, that evening, to the Senior Banquet and Prom, pointing out to the world that we were mighty seniors, not to be dealt with lightly! Soon this school and all our activities here are to become only memories. But no matter how far our paths may diverge in the future we will always remember with fondness our four years at E. F. A. and all they meant to us. il- 91- 94 To Miss Park and Mr. Ekes go the sincerest thanks of all seniors for their iri- valuable advice and assistance during the year.

Our first ten provisions are made for those who tread closely in our footsteps, the Juniors. 1. To Polly Marks and Dan Krouse, the tardy duo of Rita Moss and John Zures bequeath their cross- indexed file of teacheris signatures, plus four cartons each ofiexcuse blanks, hall passes, and detained slips. 2. Harold Hart has decided to leave his histrionic facting, that isl talents to genial Gene Cesari. '3. Paul Rowe transfers to any needy geometry or drafting student his unexcelled abilities, namely those of drawing circles and straight lines with ruler and Compasses, respectively. 4. Hack Hyssong gives outright his wonderful drawl to that sultry Southern siren, Suzanne Joyce. 5. Nash-driver Bill Nagle passes on his fender- denting abilities to a fellow Nash-driver, l'Lenny" Shepard. 6. Louis 'Towers Model" Pirozzolo is leasing his clothes-horse talents to Marilyn Sutter. 7. Sam Horwitz has expressed his desire to turn over all Hnancial accounts residing in his care to Bob Owens, providing the latter learns to add. 8. Don Coleman and Jack McConnell leave those end runs and line plunges to Bill Tryon and Ken Rogers. 9. Vic Makovitch bequeaths his exemplary conduct in study-hall and library to Chuck Mashanic, who has a flying start already. 10. Louis Clark deeds his poetic license to Carmine Dandrea. CThis provision is subject to revocation if Carmine cannot think up a rhyme for Hsilverul. You lower classes come in for a share of the loot, too, so donlt worry, we'll get around to you. 1. To the Freshmen, we Seniors offer this bit of tried and true advice: Take long steps to preserve your shoe leather, and peer over the tops of your specs as often as possible to save optical wear and tear. 2. To the Sophomores goes a more concrete legacy. Room 317, formerly vacant, has been equipped with a concealed bar, easy chairs, and the latest comic books. lt's yours, Sophomores, as soon as you can eject us from II. Oh yes, here's a few bequests made out to the teachers. Letis see what they are. 1. To Mr. Schwenkler goes a beautiful vest pocket calculator to keep track of how many times he has told us to "get that." 2. To Mr. Colgan we leave a genuine Siamese white elephant, complete with native princess, to add to his desk collection. 3. For Mrs. Hutchinson we have constructed a chalk box with a concealed mousetrap so that her chalk will be safe from Mr. Weaver's raids. 4. Mr. Weaver gets a year's supply of same so that he won't get his fingers caught, 5. Lastly, Mrs. Stewart and Mrs. Munson get a thousand page collection of crossword puzzles, complete with answers. Oh happy day! As a final post-script, may we leave a nickel-plated crochet hook and our best wishes to those princes among janitors, Mr. Andy Koval and Mr. Claude MDOCW Kittle.

Stage Manager-James Burkhardt. Senior Play uNothing But the Truthf' by James Montgomery, was pre- sented on May 22 by the Senior Class. The production consti- tuted another triumph in Mr. Colgan's long line of successful plays. Gwen Ralston gives Bob Bennett 310,000 to invest. He claims he can double it. Through a series of mixups, the 310,000 was doubled, a charity received 3120,000, and Bob has to tell the truth for twenty-four hours. After he has insulted everyone fsimply by telling them the honest truthl , the twenty-four hours finally run out and, by lying with great facility, he manages to soothe all rufiled dispositions in time for a happy ending.

For our first activity we leased the Academy's Moonbeam Room, decorated it appropriately, hired Dick Hamlin 81 Corn- pany, and presented the 'cwishbone Whirl,' on the evening before Thanksgiving. The Student Council Carnival corona- tion saw us represented by William Tryon and ,lean Drake, both of Whom discharged their duties as attendants with skill and polish. lf' A X nfl I -r Class We got the jump on the future by order- ing our class rings this year, so we would have them for our debut as seniors. W'e also changed the design on them. Of course, the last and most impressive event on our schedule was Junior Day. With our red and white ribbons promin- ently displayed, we displaced the mighty seniors ffor one day, at leastj as the most important people on the face of the earth. An in the evening we trouped en masse to our own Junior Prom. A Our sincerest thanks go to Miss Martin and Mr. Donelson. Their understanding and wise counsel were greatly appreciated. MR.

Our class was represented at the Student Council Carnival by Sophie Zawko and Richard Olney. gl Class On May 17 we presented a Sophomore Dance in the E. F. A. gymnasium. This impressive evening ended our activities for the year. We wish to express our apprecia- tion to Mrs. Holger and Mr. Parry for their advice and interest in our class. With- out their help we should not have had such an easy path. MR. SILAS PARRY, MRS. CAROLYN BOLGER SHIRLEY SHAFFER, ANTHONY FUSARE, RICHARD Ross, JENNYLEE Rossurs Freshman We must confess that for a few weeks at the beginning of the year, we were a little bewildered. After we had become fairly well oriented, we chose our officers: Richard Ross, president, Shirley Shaffer, vice president, ,lennylee Roberts, secretaryg and Anthony Fusare, treasurer. With this capable quartet in the lead, We felt ready for anything. Next we proceeded to select Mr. Shep- herd and Miss MacNamara for advisers. Class Our most sincere thanks go to both of them for their patient and skillful guidance. At the Student Council Carnival, our class was represented by Martha Steele and Robert Butler, who served as attendants to the king and queen. The main event of our calendar was the May Dance, held on May 3rd. With this gala affair we concluded 'a very pleasant year at E. F.

J P Y J Y Y Club members assembled at Rossi's Tearoom for an initiation dinner one evening last fall. This was the club's first major activity of the year. Meetings were held regularly throughout the season. Various subjects were discussed at these meetings, although no formal debates were conducted. In March a banquet was held at the Langwell Hotel. It was very well attended and constituted the final important event on the club schedule.

Participation is limited to students who have passed their biology Regents or are maintaining an average of 85 percent or better, in the subject. Meetings are held on Tuesdays in Room 303. The club has had interesting discussions on anatomy, allergies, dissection, hypnotism, and other subjects. Motion pictures on cancer were shown during one meeting. At the Student Council Carnival, club members held the ice cream concession. There was also a club party which was very successful. ln the fall the club toured the iiltration plant and learned about our water purification system. Mr. Gorman gave a lecture on the same topic. Early in the spring they made a trip through the Hoff- man Nurseries. Club members want to express their thanks to Miss 0'Connor for her interest and assistance throughout the year.

While aiding her friends in the library, the cflunior Librarian" also betters herself by becoming familiar with many books. At Library Council meetings, held every Tuesday, the girls learn more about library work from Miss Elizabeth Elclredge, their capable adviser. ! ffl, 5 N-f ,M- Seated on floor -- Cornell Lagonegro, Brown.

Its members put through several major projects and laid plans for many more. Early in the year a college catalog file was established in the library. Council oH'icers wrote to dozens of colleges and universities all over the country to procure these catalogs. ln November several Student Council members attended a conference at Johnson City. There they participated in discussions concerning Council activities and procedures. At the Carnival, held in February, Marty Kain and Patty Vreatt were crowned king and queen, amid the applause of attendants and audience. A dance in the gym followed, at which several hundred Academy-ites tripped the light fantastic, A proposal was made to change the school hours. Students and teachers were given an oppor- tunity to vote on the question, the former approved it by more than four to one, while the latter opposed the measure nearly three to two. The change may be instituted next year. Other plans for the future include the purchase of an electric basketball scoreboard and cheerleaders' uniforms, as well as the establishment of a varsity lettermen's club. Dr. He1mkamp's cooperation and advice, so essential to the groupis success, is greatly appreciated by all Council members. President .............. .................

The Ushers, Club, under the guidance of Miss Julia Collins, has the largest membership this year of any since its founding seven years ago. These girls, whom you have seen directing traffic at assem- blies, form a very active group. Among their other school duties is presiding at the hostess table in the front hall. The Ushers began their social activities this year with a skating party at Grotto. Next they presented the "Ushers' Hoedownf, a round and square dance, which was held in the school gymnasium. This was followed by another skating party and the traditional banquet and dance, climaxing the year's activities. On Senior Day, as is the custom, the Ushers reluctantly relinquished their ribbons to the Junior girls with the confident hope that they will uphold the fine reputation now enjoyed by the club. This yearis members wish to thank Miss Collins for her helpful guidance by which they have benefited throughout the year. Head Usher .,........... ..........

On that fateful day early in the year when we were told of our appointment to the Torch Edi- torial Staff, we could think only of the great honor being bestowed upon us. How things have changed! Several cases of aspirin, myriads of penpoints, and tons of shoe leather have come and gone since then. Now our sole thought is of sleep. Yet, we would "do it all over again," were we given theioppor- XX, tunity. Our most sincere thanks go to Mrs. Hutchinson and Miss Cameron. Their patient and persistent assistance have made this book possible. With quivering hearts we now await the distribution of this, our masterpiece. Only the knowl- edge that the Junior Class must follow in our footsteps consoles us. Let them have strength-theylll need it!

We never knew Elmira was so big! But, after much labor, we finally succeeded in filling up those pages. ,The sales campaign was held in the fall. Thanks to a great many enterprising homeroom sales- men, we managed to get rid of nearly 1100 yearbooks. Because more money was needed to pay all those bills, we decided to stage a musicale. Enlisting the aid of Miss Park, we set out to produce a really fancy show, the ccGay Nineties Revuef' This highly acclaimed presentation featured some leg work by the 5'Flora Dora Flappersv and vocals plus leg work from the '4Bowery Boysf, John Knapp and his 'cLamplighters,' provided some hot jazz to bring the show to a conclusion. Next a big drive was held to find sponsors. The campaign was an immense success--at least, from our point of view. Now that we have exhausted the available means of collecting money, we can rest in the knowl- edge that the 1947 Torch is completely paid for. We were victorious! Mr. Schwenkler is to be thanked for all his advice and assistance, without his help there would have been no yearbook. Seated. on floor - Frazier, Rose, Schwartz, F. Eaton, D'Onofrio, Della. Rocco.

This year was an especially active one for the Academy's not-so-scandalous scandal sheet. The season opened with an all out subscription drive. Vindex stop signs suddenly appeared all over the school. The pep assembly, written, produced, and directed by Vindex staff members, fea- tured such renowned radio stars as Fulton Horwitz, Sr., and the incomparable Hildehamm. The faithful were paid off at the Tag Day assembly with an excellent performance by Lew Thrasher, local magician. Next our press invaded Syracuse to attend the E. S. S. P. A. convention, where they pulled down a Hsuperiorv rating, besides having a rarin' good time. At that time, ,loan Danzig received an award for a feature story which had appeared in one of last year's Vindex issues.

The founding of the Freshman Girls' Glee Club created a minor mix-up in names, so the change was instituted. Members of the Girls' Choir have participated in both Elmirais Spring Festival and the Hornell music contest. They sang :Slumber Song," uStardust,', uPrayer', from "Hansel and Gretelf' MPeter Panf' HBy the Bend of the River," and other numbers-some at Southside, some at Hornell.

The Octet, with Charles Desjardins as master of ceremonies, has been kept forever Mon the gov throughout the past year. With singing, the lVl.C.,s wise cracks, and Marie BroWn's readings they have entertained at many varied functions about town. They made their debut singing for women of the Chemung County Home Bureau, and tried to bring a ray of sunshine to the people at the Home for the Aged. The Elmira Business and Professional Women and the Home Economics Club also requested programs which were gladly presented. Some very attentive veterans were serenaded at a Veterans, School assembly, and the Rotary Club was also entertained. At a dinner meeting of the Flat Tire Club the group sangseveral numbers. The l9416 Arctic League broadcast included mlihe Night Before Christmas," sung by the Octet. Their last venture was a trip to Hornell, N.

The Freshman Girls' Glee Club was founded this year to provide choral training for new girls. After a year in this group they are admitted to the Girls' Choir and the Mixed Choir. Thanksgiving was the only time the group sang in public this year. At that assembly they sang a well-known hymn, demonstrating very clearly their ability to sing as well as a group. Because the personnel of the club will change every year, there is little probability that it will appear in public very frequently. However, Miss Park hopes to continucQ-tasfla training ground for young talent. A Pregidenlf ,,,,,,,,,,,4 ..,...... E llen KC3T11CY Vice President ........... .......

Under the leadership of new coaches Ben Botnick and uMoon7' Mullins, and with eleven returning lettermen from the 1945 team, EHS lost only one decision in their seven game schedule. The opening game of the season on September 25 at Parker Field saw EHS roll up a 19-O victory over Scranton Central. Elmira rolled to their win on touchdowns by McConnell and Coleman. The first Saturday in October saw the Blue and White travel to Ithaca to notch an easy 27-O win. After Don Coleman dashed 73 yards for the first score, he joined forces with Bob Chapman to score the other three scores. However, Ben Botnick's forces lost a decisive 41-0 defeat at the hands of Auburn. The game, played on a miserably rainy day, saw Auburn completely outplay the home forces. The most thrilling game of the season was our victory over Syracuse Central on October 19. Trailing 7-0 going into the last quarter, Elmira scored on touchdowns by Rothwell and Bob Mashanic. Mashanic scored on a long pass from Pirozzola in the closing moments of the game. After a week of rest Elmira came up with the T-formation and battled the Orange Tornado of Endicott to a 14-14 stalemate. Don Coleman paced our attack with Marty Kain and Lou Pirozzolo sharing the defensive honors. Elmira then traveled to Johnson City and recorded their fourth win in six games. Once again it was Coleman who provided our margin of victory. This time he raced 75 yards for the Winning score. In the final game of the season, EHS completely overran Ithaca to the tune of 32-0. With all six touchdowns scored by six different players, the Little Red was no match for the Blue and VVhite. Letters were awarded to the following: Somers, Donovan, Holden, McConnell, Pirozzolo, Kain, Huffner, Skordynski, Ott, Huey, Rothwell, Coleman, Mashanic, Barneski, Goodwin, Bystrom, Rogers, Sowers, Carrier, Steiner, Hamm, Tryon, Chapman, and Manager William Doland. In addition Lou Pirozzola was nominated to the Herald-American all-state team and Coleman re- ceived honorable mention. s Next year the two schools will each have a separate team, with Moon Mullins coaching at South- side and Adam Markowski as the new mentor at EFA. sw- - 1 'YAY if ' 'W ' , 175-llvtvwvv--I-I-1l.1sn1u.' .. Basketball 1946 - 1947 p New coach Bill Wipfler called his first workout for basketball on November 1, 1946 and found five returning varsity lettermen and nine jayvees ready to form the nucleus for his 1946-47 basketball squad. The team opened its season by losing the first two games. On opening night, December 6, they traveled to Johnson City to be defeated 55-47, and four days later, in their first home appearance, they were defeated by Elmira Heights 44-39. They lost both games despite gallant last quarter rallies. Against Johnson City they tallied 19 points in the last canto, and in the Heights contest Bob Chap- man scored 12 points in the last half, but it was just short of victory. The,team won their first game of the season the following week by edging out Endicott 30-26. Jerry Halpin and Ward Hamm sparked the team to victory. However, the squad closed its 1946 competition the following week by losing to a powerful Central team from Binghamton 60-29. EFA was somewhat busy during the first week of play in 1947. On Tuesday, January 7, they lost a heartbreaker to Bingo North 44-42. On Friday they broke a third quarter tie and rallied to defeat SHS by a 48-39 margin. Jerry Halpin was the star of the game with 19 counters. He was helped greatly by the play of Michalko, Coleman, and Zures. The following night, the Blue and White lost to a classy Hornell team in a non-league game 52-36. Don Parry tallied 11 points for EFA and Zures scored 10. The Academy Hoopsters were able to win only one of their next three games. They lost to Vestal, 49-37, defeated Corning Northside 53-37 in a game which featured the brilliant play of Jim Ross, who tallied 15 points. Halpin scored 16 and Michalko 11 in this contest. In completing the first round of competition, EFA dropped a close 36-33 decision to Ithaca. Halpin notched 17 points. The Blue and White suffered two overpowering defeats in the beginning of the second round. They lost to Johnson City 59-36 despite the outstanding play of Ward Hamm who netted a total of 19 points. In the other contest U-E reversed an earlier setback by defeating EFA 58-28. Once again the local lads suffered two defeats at the hands of Bingo North and Central. The North score was 47-39, and the Central result was 53-33. Jerry Halpin was outstanding in these games, scoring 17 against Central and 27 against North. After staging a terrific last quarter drive to defeat Southside 48-42, EFA lost their final three games of the season. They were conquered by Horseheads 53-373 Vestal 33-223 and Ithaca 58-29. It was the outstanding playing of John Zures that finally clinched the uphill struggle against the Green and White. However, Hamm and Halpin shared scoring honors with Zures in this contest. Jerry Halpin finished fourth in league scoring and was nominated to a position on the second all-star team. Zures received honorable mention. The prospects for a better season for next year are indeed bright, as only three lettermen are not expected to return. The Blue and White Junior Varsity closed the season with a record of four victories in eighteen games. The team consisted of one senior, two juniors, and the remaining members were sophomores. The squad won from Vestal twice, Southside, and Horseheads once. Lon Ban-iewicz paced the team in scoring with 121 points with Bill Blandford second with 75 and Don Barneski third with 73. 7 , , I "' "i' """"-'- ' 'Q Y- - 1 Front-Bevilacqua.

S. sports system, which has been expanded considerably during the past two years, once again provided entertainment and thrills from September to June. The split-up between the schools was complete in all fields except football and track and these undoubtedly will be divided for next year. The last year for football with combined schools saw E. H. S. end in a first place tie in the South- ern Tier Conference. The only loss was a 4-1-0 shellacking by Auburn, a non-conference team. Lou Pirozzolo was named to the all-state team for the second consecutive year and Don Coleman was given honorable mention. Wlith the opening of the basketball campaign, E. F. A. had a new coach in the person of Bill Wipfler. Although only four games were won in the schedule of eighteen games, the varsity and junior varsity players gained valuable experience for next yearis campaign. The nomination of high-scoring Terry Halpin to the second all-star squad and the two victories over the Southside highlighted the season. Boxing and wrestling followed immediately after the curtain fell on the basketball season. The F. A. wrestlers, coached by Bill Wipfler won six of the nine championships, with Harvey Hilden and Lou Pirozzolo retaining their championships. However, the Academy boxers were able to win only three matches, Bob Mashanic and Pirozzolo becoming two-time winners. Mr. Tony Peckally coached the Blue and 'White pugilists. The girls also enjoyed a successful sports season under the guidance of Miss Van Duyn and Miss Sprague. Basketball games were played in class, homeroom, and interschool competition. Other fea- tures of the girls' program were badminton, soccer, ping pong, dancing, volleyball and softball. A The year of 1947 witnessed the return of track to the list of varsity sports with Francis CMoon,l Mullins as coach. This sport still continued as a two-school proposition. E Along with track the baseball team progressed under the coaching of Bill Wipfler. Although the prospects are somewhat hopeful, the team is not expected to match the record of last yearns squad. Other sports obtaining popular recognition at E. F. A. were ping pong, and intramural basket- ball. Room 312C copped this basketball title and Herb Knapp won the individual scoring crown. It was proposed to have a high school golf team and possibly a tennis tournament which would round out this highly successful sports year. , ,x'- ' 3- lf ' 820 For the convenience of those Academy girls land boysj who are accustomed to writing long epistles in each others' yearbooks, we here present a form letter, with blanks in appropriate spots.

L SERIOUSLY SPEAKI Thomas Jefferson: Father of American Democracy - Charles Raymond Shepardson - fBelow are printed exerpts from an essay written by Ray Shepardson. for a Knights of Columbus essay contest held in May 1946. The piece was awarded first place in the Academy and was published in the Elmira Sunday Telegrarn.J PZ 22: 222 In all of the great history of the United States of America, no man has had a more glorious record of selfless public service than Thomas Jefferson. He held untlaggingly to the great cause of real democracy in spite of fierce opposition and under- handed personal attacks. His long public life included the positions of member of the House of Burgesses of Virginia, member of Congress, three times wartime governor of Virginia, Minister to France, Secretary of State, Vicepresident, and twice Presi- dent of the United States. I, therefore, nominate Thomas Jef- ferson to the honorable rank of f'Outstanding American." Jefferson believed in the people. He mistrusted monarchial or auto- cratic government of any form, say- ing, t'Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves, therefore, are its only safe deposi- tariesfl is THOMAS JEFFERSON FELT that the ideal America should be mainly agrarian, a prosperous lantl of individually owned farms, con- trolled by government. He believed that the least government was the best government. He opposed indus- trialization, for he felt that city dwell- ers might tend to forget their re- sponsibility to keep their govern- ment in a democratic form, and allow themselves to fall under the control of a despotic government. He was no mere theorist, for he realized that a people must be prepared for de- mocracyg that they can not merely accept it when it is offered to them. Therefore he believed that educa- tion should have a foremost position under a republican form of govern- ment. He fought bitterly for the repeal of unjust laws and the passage of necessary ones. He was never afraid to offend those in control or to make enemies in his battle for the right. WE MAY NOW PAUSE for a glimpse of the physical ,Jefferson at the threshold of his great career. He was six feet, two inches in height, lean and angular, with a thatch of sandy hair surmounting a freckled and bony face. His personal habits were retiring, for his voice tended to become weak while speaking in public. He was very sensitive to criticism. He had an amazing range of interests which included music, government, inven- tion, philosophy, architecture, farm- ing, and surveying. He invented many labor-saving devices, including the moldboard plow, the dumbwaitcr, and many other clever and useful articles. He personally designed and built his beautiful home, uMonti- cello," and equipped it with many novel devices. He never really wanted his public ofhces, for he felt that he would be far happier as a simple farmer, removed from the attacks and anxieties of public life. is IN l808, refusing a third term, the old man returned to his home, leav- ing a grateful nation and a job, well done. The Federalist Party had been completely smashed, and his demo- cratic ideals had triumphed. Madi- son and Monroe, the next Presidents, were close friends and disciples of Jefferson, so for the next I6 years the shadow of Thomas Jefferson helped form the policies of the land. No man has ever had the influence of Jefferson in forming the future of his country. On the fourth of .Iuly, I8-26, on the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas .Jefferson joined the Ages, a true patriot who spent his 83 years in the service of his country. A grateful nation has since greatly honored Jefferson, founder and fight- er for the democratic principles for which the United States of America has become the inspiration of the- world. The Lamp Lighter - James Ross - fThe following is a poem about Mr. Floyd Strow, ci mathematics teacher in Perrysburg High School, Perrysburg, Ohio. The poem was printed in the May, 1946, issue of the New York State Education As- sociation Magazine.J He lives with a foreign world Of vertices and faces, And is often lost amid a maze Of parallels and bases. To exist in such a manner In which fun is not a feature, Is the life which fate hasgiven to The mathematics teacher. The road is long, the way is hard, The problems oft confusing, And so we say, three cheers, hurray For making it amusing. I know a math instructor Who really turns the trick, And I think his sense of humor Is the thing that makes him click. His excellence as a teacher And his value as a coach ls his Hmodus operandiu- The humorous approach. To inject a note of humor In a subject dull and dry Is a very good idea Which more teachers ought to try. Engulfed in calculations, When the end at length appears, His students Find the volume Plus the 'imusic of the spheres." Theldeals ofthe Constitution in the World Today fThe following is a condensation of the speech with which Harold Hart won first place in the Academy division of the American Legion Oratorical Contest this year.l In the past century and a half the United States has risen from the status of an insignificant little coun- try to that of a great world power. The impelling force capable of mak- ing such a transformation must sure- ly have been as magnificent as the final product. And indeed it was. Inspired though the document was, the people of that day regarded it with suspicion. Before they could agree to such a document they want- ed a guarantee that their rights to freedom would never be infringed upon. The English had such a guar- anteeg why not the Americans? The founding fathers sat again in convention to give the people what they wanted, a Bill of Rights. Ten amendments were added to the Con- stitution, the first setting forth most potently the guarantee of freedom which the people wanted: "Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibit- ing the free exercise thereofg or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press: or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievancesf' Ik :Er To all those who would like to see America advance far along the road to peace and prosperity through patient understanding of, and co- operation with our neighbors, I say, "Take these ideals to heart: Free- dom, Justice, and Equality for all niankindf' A LIGHTER El ' Lggmis Appgintgd Rees, F idelman Find New Element, Driving Examiner Schwenkler's Law Repudiated Brooklyn Project Nlystery Unveiled Rowe, Cummings Are Assistants Mayor John Zures today announced the appointment of master- driver Nancy Loomis as official driving ex- aminer for Elmira and vicinity. He stated that Miss Loomis's amazing proficiency behind the wheel, as well as her startling safety record, were adequate qualifications for her re- ceiving the post. When Miss Loomis was told of her appointment, she said, 'fl shall strive to fulfill the obligations of my oflice to the best of my ability. No begin- ner can expect to receive a license without taking at least nine tests!" Assistant Inspectors Paul Rowe and Charles Cummings could not be con- tacted for comment. BULLETIN: President Charles Klugo of the Pari-Mutual Life Insurance Company, in a state- ment made public today, an- nounced a fifty per cent increase in insurance rates throughout Che- mung County. City Conncilmen Robert Rarrick, Theodore Lutomski, Louis Cacciotti, and Councilwomen Carolyn Carpen- ter and Mary Frances Spallone ap- proved the appointments unanimous- ly at a special meeting last night. The only objection came fiom an onlooker who identified himself as Harold Wolfe. His claim that he was better qualified for the position was promptly overruled, and the objector was quickly ejected from the room by Sergeant-at-Arms William Bowen. Revolutionary developments in the field of nuclear physics have been announced recently by atomic physic- ists of great national and interna- tional fame. Dr. Norman P. Fidel- man, Ph.D., B.T.O. fBachelor of Theoretical Opticsl, and Piofessor R. Harris Rees, head of the Depart- ment of Research Physics at Vassar, were appointed directors of the Brooklyn Project last year by Presi- dent TI'l1I11E1l1!S successor, Martin Kain. The two scientists told a large gathering of newsmen today of dis- covering element 97, which they have named "fidoniumf' 'fliecause of its atomic number, l23, and its atomic weight, IIS," fidonium's discoverers stated, Nthe new element positively disproves Schwenklefs Law, Avogadro's Law, the atomic theory, and Dalton's hy- pothesis. It will also necessitate a drastic revision of the periodic chart and the electrochemical seriesf, When informed of this revolution- ary development, Professor Schwenk- ler said, 4'Rees and Fidelman were among my most promising studentsf, Filibuster in Senate State Senators Fred Edwards and Henry DePrimo, both of Elmira, are actively participating in the heated debate now going on in Albany. Re- liable quarters reported today that an informed source disclosed that a break was expected IOITIOITOW. The dispute started when Major- ity Leader Richard Colegrove ob- jected to an amendment nroposed by Senator Rocco Fredo. This amend- ment, suggested for the Betts-Cralr oski Anti- disestablishmentarianism Bill, would have reduced maximum yearly salaries for municipal Graft Approval Department heads from 52,867.49 to 32,867.47 Efforts to end the controversy have been hampered by the aggres- sive attitude of the Senateis Horse- heads Block, consisting of Senators Robert Hart, Irvin Appel, Margaret Belig, and Edwin Rutski. When asked for a statement, Sen- ator Harry Nicholson, who is asso- ciated with the group, shouted,HLong live anti - disestablishmentarianism! Down with governmental honesty! Ah hate war! Ah'm gonna fili- buster! !" Attorney General Nagle Orders IVlark's Gambling Ship Seized Last week Willard Patrick Nagle ordered drastic action to be taken against Nancy 'LCapone" Marks and her notorious gambling ship, 'LThe Lucky Seven," located off the coast of Florida. J. Edgar Parlo, head of the F.B.I., sent three of his special agents, Neil Elliott, William Bowen, and John Hyssong, to seize and in- vestigate the ship. When they arrived at the scene, they discovered the un- scrupulous Marks and henchmen in the back room counting their ill- gotten gains. However, when one of the men demanded his fair share of the cash, Pistol Jitsu Marks drew out her sword and sent his dis- membered body over the side railing. When Marks tried to escape with her loot, Elliot, Bowen, and Hyssoug immediately went into action. After a running gun battle, in which two of her gunmen were fatally wounded, Marks was captured. The Supreme Court has decided to side step all precedent and rule on the case without preliminary action in a subordinate court. Chief Justice Oliver Wendell Dieseroth stated yes- terday that this is the most unusual case that has come up during his days on the bench. Irish Stew Explodesg Glocca lVIorra'in Ruins A terrifiic explosion rocked the entire town of Glocca Morra early yesterday. Its cause has not been definitely determined, but firemen be- lieve that the blast originated in a store-room at the Sullivan Brothers Stew Factory. Efforts to find the source of the concussion were ham- pered by the condition of the men: they were all stewed. The only com- ment that could be obtained was from a dazed worker, Chief Stew- Stirrer Jack McConnell. When lo- cated the disheveled, and slightly stir crazy worker stated, "I told Red O'Connor he shouldnft have put in that triple - active Worcestershire Sauce!" However, the disheartened O'Connor merely groaned, NI don't ask questions: I just have fun!"
