USIC is the oldest and most universal of languagesg it appeals
to everyone, regardless of age or experience. The above draw-

yet im ortant influence music has on our lives. A conductoris hands uietl

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.
Dear to us always,
This school and all its walls,
Thou'lt ever with us stay,
Fair F.. F. A.
When we are gone from thee,
Still thou shalt ever be
Fairest on land and sea,
Dear E. F. A.
Our hearts may well grieve,
So soon to part from thee,
But clear old school, believe,
We're true always.
True hearts and friends well-niet
Thy charms are with us yet,
Nor can we eler forget

With sincerest admiration and respect we dedicate this 1911-7 issue of the uTorch"
to Miss Harriet I. Wixon. 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
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.
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

To MY CLASSMATES:
In a few short weeks our four year stay in the Elmira Free Academy will come
to a close. 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.
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.
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. .-
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.

Senior Class Will
We, the august and privileged characters of the 1941-7 Senior Class, will, whether or not you want
us to, leave this list of legacies to those who remain behind as we depart from this institution of
higher learning. Our first ten provisions are made for those who tread closely in our footsteps, the
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
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"
6. Louis 'Towers Model" Pirozzolo is leasing his
clothes-horse talents to Marilyn Sutter.

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
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
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.

Of course, the last and most impressive
event on our schedule was Junior Day.
With our red and white ribbons promin-

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.
All Agora members wish to thank Mrs. Bolger for her helpful advice and guidance, so freely

The girls of the Library Council have the responsibility of helping their classmates find refer-
ence material and select good reading matter. They also check books in and out and collect fines on
overdue books. Although usually busy returning slips to study halls or mending torn books, these
girls occasionally visit the Steele Memorial Library to observe procedures there.
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.

The Proscenium Club is one of the Academyis least known but most active organizations. Although
the club has been in existence for only a little more than two years, its members have designed and
constructed stage sets for eight major productions. This year's included the Christmas program, the
nGay Nineties Revuefi and '4Nothing But the Truth? Proscenium Club members are also responsible
for backstage Work and lights during assembly programs.
Mr. Donald Waite, founder and original adviser of the group left the Elmira school system this
year. Mr. John -I. Byrd, who replaced Mr. Waite as drafting instructor, took over the duties of Pro-
scenium Club adviser. Under his capable direction the club has progressed far toward becoming a
permanent organization in the Academy.

Activity was the keyword in this yearis Student Council. 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.

Stylus is the Academy artists' club. lts objectives are the promotion of a widespread interest in
art and encouragement of promising young artists.
Club projects this year included sketching and making scrapbooks for hospitals. Highlight of the
year was a visit from Mr. Roy Fox, prominent local artist. He displayed some of his woodcuts and
donated one to the school. The club also visited the Arnot Art Gallery.
Stylus members wish to thank Miss Cameron for her advice and assistance.

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
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

throughout the year.

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-
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-

HOh, my aching feetlll This groan might well have been uttered by any member of thel Torch
Business Staff after he or she had tramped all over town soliciting ads. 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.

Clubs may come and clubs may go, but the Vindex goes on forever! 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

a Hsuperiorv rating, besides having a rarin' good time. At that time, ,loan Danzig received an award

The Academy musical group, formerly called the Glee Club, has changed its name this year
to the Girls' Choir. 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.
Girls' Choir choristers also sang in the Academy Music Department's assembly in May.

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. Y., where they acquitted themselves very Well at the annual
music contest. '

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

Football 1946 - 1947
The Elmira High Schools combined football team ended its existence with the first championship
team since 1939. 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
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
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.

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
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
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.

The great success of this year's athletic program is due
in no small part to the efforts of our physical education
instructors. Their untiring assistance is sincerely appre-
The E. H. 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
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. ,

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
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-
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-
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.
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
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-
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-
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
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

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-

When Miss Loomis was told of her
appointment, she said, 'fl shall strive

ment made public today, an-
nounced a fifty per cent increase
in insurance rates throughout Che-
City Conncilmen Robert Rarrick,
Theodore Lutomski, Louis Cacciotti,
and Councilwomen Carolyn Carpen-

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
'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,

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-

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!"
Many Elmira notables were seen
at the annual Senior League Ball
last evening at the Skordynski Hotel.

Brown, famed comedienne: Peter
Pecchio, the Broadway star, with his
manager, Mary Tanaka: Governor
and Mrs. Theodore Hableg Alex Mus-
tico, noted sports announcer: and
band-leader John Knapp.
Chairman of the affair was Senior
League President Marie Lilholt.
Committee chairmen included: Betty
Jane Eskeli, hall: Rita Moss, tickets:
Helen Ptaszek, music: and Evesta

Farnham and her All-Boy Orchestra
furnished rolicking rhythm for danc-
ing from ll:3O to 3:30.
