WIXON E, THE CLASS or 194-9, feel honored to be able to dedicate this "Torch" to Miss Harriet I. Wixon-teacher, adviser, and friend. For nearly a half century she has taught the youth of Elmira Free Academy, by precept and by her exemplary life. Eilicient in her work, wise in her judgment, kindly in her dealings, she has inspired all who have been privileged to know her. Faculty and students alike join in wishing her many years of "retirement" as rich and full as have been those of her teaching career, L. Q li-1 fzff: ff'- Q 3 M.. ,Z X., gg if, 2,- fj,,'If'- .ig-'Q g sk. X Z ls . 5 em Dm, 'gfefmkcmwz NVQ have known you only four short years, but in those years we have learned much from you and from the examples you have set. If we follow these fine examples. we shall surely have better chances for attaining success in life after we leave high school. The first thing we noticed was your scholarly interest in all affairs. ranging from local school matters to international problems. Your talks in assembly have revealed your wide range of knowl- edge. We have also been impressed with the meticulous way in which you assemble information and arrive at conclusions. Although these qualities have provided an inspiration for our scholastic achievement, you have also done much more for us. You have given us your guidance and help. not only in our school work, but also in our social functions. Thus we attribute a major part of our success. scholastic and social, to you. You have gone out of your way to gather information concerning scholarships and have done much to guide us, especially through our senior year. Surely we could not have functioned so smoothly without that guidance. lt is only proper that we should express our appreciation now. lVe sincerely thank you for the interest you have taken in us as a class, and especially for the aid you have given to us as individuals. 'Me H444 af 7949 vom ,,emezm,gz949 The theme of your year book is "The Forty-niners." I knew a "Forty-ninerf' He was my grandfather. As a boy I listened to him spin yarns about his trek to the western land of promised gold and his penniless return across the Isthmus of Panama to his home in the Middle West. He did not belong to the lucky few who make a "strike" Like thousands of others he gained nothing but experience from the grand adventure. He found no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Although he loved to tell this story of his early youth, he achieved his modest success on a fertile Illinois farm through hard work and honest endeavor. The frontier has largely vanished, but modern youth still dreams of high adventure in far-away places. There are also those who seek, in these days of prosperity, an easy way to riches and success, if only they might hit upon it. Others are content to sit by the radio and telephone on the off chance that fortune in the form of a "give-away program" will smile upon them and dump riches in their laps. Yet it is still true for most of us, as of old, that worthwhile living and the attainment of high objective come only as a result of ambition, hard work and intelligent planning. It is good that youth is filled with idealism and enthusiasm. But these :.re not enough. We need stout hearts to see things through to the finish. St. Peter once spontaneously declared himself ready to go to prison or even to death with his Master. But when the crisis came he denied Him thrice. Peter petered out. Repentant and in bitter tears, he later regained his moral courage and became one of the great stalwart leaders of the Christian Church. But he illustrates in this instance a common human failing. We begin tasks, both in school and in life, with vigor and good intention and then all too often fall short of the mark. May you keep your ideals and your enthusiasms. And, as you face the task of daily living-for yourself, your loved ones, and your country,-may you hold steadfast, measure up to the best within you, and never-peter out. As you leave these halls, the best wishes for success and happiness go with you from your teachers and Your principal, 643. Rachel M. Bowen, A.B. John E. Colgan, A.B. Kathryn L. Daly, A.B.

Fmfzq S'See'st thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings? The writer of "Proverbs" must have had men like Mr. Parry in mind when he wrote these words of commendation. Regardless of the particular work Mr. Parry does about the school, he always exerts an influence for good. In the truest sense of the word, he is an educator- one concerned with developing integrity as well as mental ability. And well may he work for these qualities in others, for he already possesses them himself. MR. SILAS F. PARRY I We wish to thank Mrs. Hutchinson, Miss Cameron and Mr. Weaver for their unselfish aid in the making of this 1949 Torch. ,, W. ..-M .. t , 3 I MRS. CELIA HUTCHINSON MR.

A. portals in September 1945, we immediately proceeded to prove tu all concerned that atomic energy was here to stay. We were it! Although we had heard of 'fthose terrible upper classmenf' we also found, amidst our new schedules, new teachers and hard-to-find rooms. The only real difficulties encountered, though, were in the matters of the newly built third floor and the "frosh', elevator. In all this hectic up- heaval we still managed to elect John Sala, Joan Hendy, Lola Brown, and Frank Giles as presi- dent, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer respectively. We extend our sincere thanks to Miss Rosinski and Mr. Parry for their splendid assistance to our class in that first year. When we became sophomores, we proved correct the statement concerning "wise fools" with which the sophomore class is associated. But after we had settled down to the "ole grind," we skil- fully selected Clayton Huey, president, Lola Brown, vice-president, Jeanne McArdle, secretary, and John Saia, treasurer. We wish to express our appreciation to Mrs. Bolger and Mr. Parry for their advice and interest in our class. We finally stepped into the social spotlight in our first year as upper classmen by presenting the g'Basketball Bounce" on January 9. Determined to continue the tradition of junior classes, we pre- sented a one-act comedy in the school auditorium. Success was ours, for both students and adults applauded the production of HSugar and Spice," with Ellen Mitchell and Mark Sullivan taking the leads. Much of our success that year was due to the excellent work of john Saia, Sophie Zawko, Lola Brown, and Clayton Huey in the usual orders. Seeing that we were soon to become seniors, we made certain of our class rings by ordering them ahead of time. At last the memorable Junior Day arrived when we strutted down the halls proudly displaying our red and white colors. To end this perfect day, we danced the evening away at our own Junior Prom. There we chose Bob Chapman and Ellen Mitchell as our proud King and Queen. We started our last year at E. F. A. by electing Joe Bevilacqua, president, Sophie Zawko, vice- presidentg Suzanne Poppleton, secretary, and Bob Chapman, treasurer. The "Twirp Season Twirl" on November 19 with Dick Hamlin's orchestra was our first social function of the year, and we leaped the hurdles to gain success. Our next big event was the senior play, 'fOut of the Frying Pan," presented on February 24 with Marjorie Ann Witherell, Polly Pitcher, Kaye Long, Mark Sullivan, Charles Des Jardins, and Edward Hoffman taking the major parts. , - The Senior Musicale on April 22 was one to be remembered for many years, while the Student Council Carnival saw a large number of our class attempting to crowd as many events as possible into the few remaining months of school. Then the momentous day ar- rived when we, as seniors, literally flew through the halls, so full of ego were we about our illustrious blue and white colors. The ban- quet and prom following were ones that will always be "dear to our hearts," for they were our last functions of the senior class as a whole. As we leave E. F. A. we take with us vivid memories of good times and of good teachers who helped to mold our lives. These will doubtless be more vital to us than the diploma awarded at the end of those four years. MRS. CAROLYN BOLGER, MR. RAY SHERMAN i .nn Qian . ,ww SUZANNE POPPLETON, josspu BEVILACQUA, SOPHIE ZAwKo, Roseiu' CHAPMAN Deen Elaaamatea: One hundred years ago men went seeking gold, security and happiness in a new country ber- yond the Rockies. In order to become established in this new territory, they had to take with them the essentials of living. We who are leaving the Academy one hundred years after the gold rush, are in a similar situation. We are going across the mountains of the problems of the Twentieth Century to seek se- curity, happiness and a livelihood. The necessities for conquering a successful future we have gained here at EFA-a knowledge of the world and people, a strength of character to meet the hard things in life, and above all a respect for God, our country and the freedoms which we enjoy in Amer- ica. We shall always be grateful to our school-a friend as well as a "mother," which has trained us to find security and happiness in our new world world of the future. Speaking on behalf of the Senior Class, I wish to thank our parents, teachers and especially Dr. Helmkamp and our advisers. Mrs. Bolger and Mr. Sherman, for their part in making our four years at EFA pleasant ones. May all the seniors graduating this June achieve joy and prosperity in their future lives, al- ways remembering their debt to E. F. A. Sincerely yours, Jw' NICHOLAS A.

"0az'afZ4e ' paul' The Senior Play "Out of the Frying Pang proved to be one of the most successful theatrical productions ever staged in the Academy auditorium. A capacity audience saw the Senior Thespians run through a show which kept them spellbound throughout its entirety. The story concerned three boys and three girls, all aspiring young actors and actresses, who lived together in thc same apartment. One of the girls learned her father was coming to visit her. Meanwhile Arthur Kenny, a producer, whom the kids were trying to impress, finally came up to their apartment. The rest of the play concerned the attempts of the young Thespians to impress Mr. Kenny of their ability and to hide their living conditions from Dottie's father, Mr. Coburn. Mrs. Florence Evans deserves much credit for the superb direction of the whole production which resulted in such excellent acting. Polly Pitcher, as Dottie, a not too bright actress, gave a realistic performance. Charles Des jardins, as Norman, did a very fine job in a very difficult part. Marge Witherell as Marge, Kaye Long as Kate, Shirley Lofstrom as Muriel, Mark Sullivan as Tony, and Ed Hoffman as George were also impressive. The most outstanding performances, how- ever, were given by Genevieve Calabrese, George Simmons, and jack Keagle. Because these three all played characters much older than themselves, they deserve a great deal of credit for the high caliber of the performance. John Saia and jerry Prechtl showed that they would be good prospects for future policemen. The cast found a great deal of enjoyment in producing this show: and to all appearances, the audience enjoyed witnessing it. Thus a great deal of credit goes to the Glass of '49 for the Hne production of "Out of the Frying Pan." Kale Aull ..... Dollie Coburn . Marge Benson Norman Reese .. ...

To further these plans, John Morrell, Anna Mae Sassano, Elaine Limoncelli, and Thomas Addabbo were elected as president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer respectively. The class realized its dreams in its first dance, 5'Frosh Frolicf' which was held in the Academy Ballroom on May 6.

On June 13th, 1946, we were driven together by the Poles who had come to our home in Pomerania, and pushed into cattle trucks and we arrived here on June 27th, 1946. The few belongings which the Russians and Poles had left us in Pomerania were almost entirely taken away from us by the Poles during the stay in the transit camp in Stettin, so that we retained only the most necessary and thin clothing we were actually wearing. Blankets and eiderdowns were taken away as well .... About 1700 people live in this camp, and one room often holds 8, 10 or more families: old men, babies, men and women of all ages are forced to live in one room .... The state of health of the adults is sub-normal and 75W of all the children in the camp have some kind of TB. The children of school age go to the camp school, but many parents of widows are not able to buy the necessary exercise books, pencils, etc .... In more than 50W of the families the mothers are alone because their husbands have either been deported or killed in the war or have died in Russian or Polish POW camps .... People have become dull and soured with grief, because all hope for the future is gradually going. After a great deal of trouble we have at last succeeded in getting a kindergarten so that at least the small chil- dren up to six years can escape from the overcrowded rooms in the camp. But good food for the children, sweets and chocolate are lacking: the little ones hardly know what chocolate is. But how shall we help the children? The older children learn English in our camp school. They would be very glad if they could extend their knowledge of the language by finding pen friends among young people of 12-20 years of age. We should be very glad if this short description of our misery in this camp finds sympathetic hearts who can understand us and who may be able to send us a ray of light in our troubled existence. Yours sincerely, on behalf of the Refugee Committee f'Sga'j W. LARSCHOYV 744: 264P0ft46 Approximately two hundred pounds of clothing, food and school supplies were collected by students of Mrs. Hutchinsonis third and fourth-year English classes. They were packed and shipped to Germany with money col- lected in the English classes. 1 CARE blanket package was shipped. The Student Council sponsored a drive for funds with which school supplies would be bought. This drive netted over S67. In addition to this, many students' good will was mani- fested in the form of letters to the youth of the camp school at Schleswig. 'Me Sggecz Schleswig, 12th January 1949 Refugee Committee. Camp Moltkekaserne. To our dear friends and patrons in USA. We want to express our very best thanks to you all who have undertaken in a generous way to collect, pack and send off the clothing for the inmates of our camp. The hrst gifts reached us just before Christmas and you cannot imagine the pleasure they gave to some families living in the poorest conditions. Every gift is welcome to us and we do hope that many needy families 'tan still be helped. The things we received have been in such good condition that the people wear them as their best clothes. Your material help for our camp is also L1 spirit- ual one, as we realize that there are still kind people in the world who have some sympathy with us. The ties between Germany and the USA are thereby revived and the feeling of friendship towards the American population is deepened. We therefore say to our American brothers and sisters 'fmay God reward you." In gratitude Yours sincerely fSgdj W. LARSCHOXV F X -A ,.n.I-""' +f'7'Nx LW ff ff x fs Y! N X, V 300 0-CS F1 Z mad l ww-3.

Wczwdtq The football team enjoyed a moderately successful season last fall. Three games were won. three lost, and two ended in ties. The team was best described as a "hot-and-cold" team. Against Corning Free Academy. it was just a mediocre organization: and only a forty-yard run by Berry on an intercepted lateral saved the Blue from defeat. The next week against Ithaca, it was an unstopable machine, completely pulverizing the opposition. When Endicott came to town, though, our team was helpless. However, against Binghamton North, the boys in blue played wonderful football with Rogers breaking through for several long gains. Binghamton Central defeated the .Academy in a heartbreaker. An attempted Held goal which would have won the game for us hit the cross-bar and bounced back on the field. Southside routed our hapless team to win the city championship. Bill Tryon was named the outstanding player of this game and won the Glenn O. Sherwood Trophy. Johnson City came to town expecting a poor team, but found instead a fighting aggregationg and when the mud was cleared, the Academy came off the field with a tie in points and a great moral victory. Hornell, which was, like Johnson City, undefeated until its game with the Academy, also felt the hot side of the Blue Devils. With Eve minutes left to play, Hornell led 13-O. Two Tryon-to- Berry passes and two perfect placements by Tryon provided a thrilling victory for the Academy. The following received their varsity letters: co-captains Huey and Rogers, Barnstead, Berry, Booth, Bruce, Chapman, Duhl, Fowler, Freeman, Hamm, Hoffman, Jones, Krouse, Pack, Palizay, Saia, Schmidt, Sekella, Sherwood, Tryon, Vockrock, Wheeler, and manager DeLige. Several players will be back next year, at which time Coach Impeciatio anticipates a good season. 'Wafzaclzfq Scene E.F.A. 6 .. C.F.A. 6 E.F.A. 6 .... .... C entral 7 E. F. A. 25 Ithaca 6 E. F.

The EFA junior varsity football team enjoyed a very successful season last fall under Coach Howard Looney. Several of the boys showed great promise for next year's varsity squad. The Little Blue Devils won four games while losing only one. The Watkins Glen Varsity was the only team to defeat the hlue juniors, while the Horseheads varsity and the Southside, Waverly, and Elmira Heights junior varsities fell before the EFA power.

Captain Bob Chapman tossed seventeen points to lead the Academy attack. Bing- hamton North tripped the Blue in their next outing, 53-48. Bill Jones, with 14 points, was high for the Blue and White. Southside High School was the next opponent of the Academy: and the Blue gave the Green and White the worst beating in the history of intra-city series, trouncing the South- siders 46-27. Ted Berry was high scorer for the Academy with 16 points. just before the Christmas holidays, EFA became the first team to beat Binghamton Central on its home court in six years. It was EFA 40, Central 39. Cortland fell before the Academy attack 48-42g but the next night, john- son City proved to be too much for the local boys. as C. won, 62-43. A hard-fighting Ithaca five, lost a close one to the Academy, 38-33, with Ted Berry dropping in 20 points. Berry threw in 18 points in the Academy's next game: but Union-Endicott was too strong for the Blue, and the Grange Tornado triumphed, 63-52. The Blue Devils ended the First round of Southern Tier Con- ference competition with an easy triumph over Vestal. The final score was 46-30. with Bill Tryon scoring 17 points, to lead the Academy pointmakers. Binghamton North was given a score by the Blue and VVhitc, but the league leaders managed to succumb to the local forces, 43-42. Horseheads went down before the Academy power, 53-36: and then Southside was defeated in the State Armory, 50-38. These two wins gave the Academy the city championship and the Elmira vicinity championship. Central was beaten 51-46, and Cortland went down to defeat 37-32. This Academy victory streak was halted at four games by a wild loss to Johnson City on our home court. C. lead at the half time, 31-15: but the home forces fought back in the second half and nearly snatched victory from the visitors. The final score was Johnson City 40. EFA 37. Ithaca gave the Blue its worst beating of the season on the Little Red court with a seore of 46-27. Vestal fell before the Blue Devils, 49-39: and in the final game of the Conference season, the Aeademy defeated the Orange :ind Black from Endicott, 33-30.

The Blue Devils defeated Horseheads and Ithaca twice and downed Elmira Heights, Central, and South- side once. Captain Lou Wood led the pitchers while Miller, Halpin, and Rogers, all of whom batted over 300, were the outstanding hitters. Tryon, who led the team in home runs and, along with Rogers, in runs batted in, was the top slugger. Rogers also stole the most bases. The following team members received letters: Ackerman, Cady, Casil, Chapman, Duffy, Ford. Halpin, Huntington, Knapp, Miller, Raniewicz, Rogers, Schiefen, Sekella, Tryon, Wheeler, Wood, and manager Bevilacqua. INith most of these men returning, Coach Wipfler is looking forward to an even better season this year. The scores of last years' games: E. F. A. 5 .................. Heights 1 E. F. A. 7 . . . . .

The season was not what one could call successful, but the members of the team did their best and enjoyed themselves, so the time was not wasted. Since he had only four lettermen return- ing from the previous year's E. H. S. team, Coach Peckally had to start from scratch. In spite of the fact that the Academy team did not win a single meet, the team did gain some distinctions. In the relay carnivals, our teams gained first and third places at Geneva and second place at Bingham- ton. Al Cerand and Milford O'Brien proved themselves to be among the best in the area by gaining third places in the sectional meet. The following team members received letters: Barnstead, Berry, Cerand, Ferguson, Gunder- man, Hoffman, La Fond, Loll, O,Brien, Riley, Saia, Simpson, Vockroth, Wood, and manager Sardo. Coach Peckally looks forward to a much better season this year. Al Cerand will captain the team this spring, and he and the rest of the team hope to raise the Academy's track standing in the Southern Tier. ssvfa..

Coach Bill Wiplier instituted this league as a feeder for the varsity and junior varsity teams. Over one hundred boys turned out, forty of whom were chosen to play in the league. These forty boys were divided into five teams, and each team played four games. The league served its purpose as several boys were elevated to the junior varsity when the season began.

In the contests between the four classes, the seniors proved to be the cream of the crop by going through the season undefeated. The senior team was sparked by the play of its Cap- tain, Bill Brown. The seniors later met the intramural champions from the Southside for the city intramural title. Much credit is due Mr. Wipfler and Mr. Peckally for their fine work in this im- portant phase of high school sports. ' 5 ' annie As a result of the increased interest in tennis, Coach Bill Wipfler inaugurated a tournament at the Academy in the fall. The tournament was open to all those interested and twenty-seven boys entered. Bill Lagonegro and Gordie Stetz eliminated a series of tough opponents to enter the finals. In the final match Bill Lagonegro won out by a 6-2, 6-3 score to become the first recog- nized tennis champion at the Academy since 1941. This spring Coach Wipfler hopes to take some of the top players to the sectionals at Bingham- ton. If this venture proves successful, tennis may soon become a recognized sport at the Academy under the enlarged athletic program.

W One of the most active organizations for girls in the Academy is the Girls' Athletic Association QG. A. AQ This year G. A. A. showed a large increase in membership over previous years. At its first meeting the club chose as its leaders Jean Caywood, president, Dorothy Christastie, vice-presi- dent 3 Jacqueline Mapes, secretary 5 Ruth Forsythe, treasurer 5 and Patricia Mackey, sergeant at arms. Several activities for its members were sponsored by G. A. A. this year, including interclass competition in bowling, basketball, volleyball, and softball. The play days with the Horseheads, Elmira Heights, and Southside High Schools provided the members with interschool competition. Both gave the girls of the Academy and of the neighboring schools a chance to get acquainted and to swap sports' techniques. toa When spring arrived, the G. A. A. members took hikes in the surrounding hills and took a trip Finger Lake for a picnic. Then to close the successful year, G. A. A. held its annual banquet. This club and its adviser, Miss Marguerite Van Duyn, deserve much credit for providing the Academy girls with not only an enjoyable recreation program but also a healthy one. .W .H ,f AMW' M N u ' T .vg1l"'v . ,.

To meet the demand for true representation in the administration of the school, the Student Council elected Basil Fabbioli as president, William Blandford as vice-president, Eleanor Copley as secretary, and Edward Stearns as treasurer. This group, together with the Senior Executive Council, headed the organization in a year which saw many innovations. Early in the year, six members, accompanied by Mr. jackson, attended in Ithaca a convention of vari- ous student councils throughout the state. They returned inspired by the examples and experiences of other counf cils and eager to try them at E. F. A. Among the first of their accomplishments was the formation of a Letterman's Club. Through the efforts of the Student Council, those boys holding an "E" were given the opportunity to join this organization in which they could look after their own interests and carry on their own activities. December saw the Council at its peak in constructive activity. Building a suggestion of Mrs. Celia Hutch- inson's into a mighty campaign, the Student Council sponsored a drive to raise funds for a school in Germany. The entire student body and faculty showed remarkable enthusiasm in this project of the Student Council's, the result being a collection of sixty-seven dollars. With this money, tablets, pencils, notebooks, and other school supplies were sent to a destitute school in Germany. It was also in December that another project, undertaken by the Student Council, came to life, A new set of college catalogs for the use of the students were received by the library. Plans were made, too, for the pur- chase of a school flag to be displayed in the auditorium and carried by the band in their line of march. To add the final touch to a more successful year, the Student Council presented its annual carnival, featured by the crowning of the King and Queen. Thanks to the wholehearted cooperation and assistance of Dr. Helmkamp, as well as the entire faculty and student body, this year's Student Council was one of the most successful in the school's history.

THE SENIOR CLASS or 1949 By john Batrouny In the momentous year of 1949, we seniors of Elmira Free Academy stand at the very threshold of oppor- tunity itself. Through this golden door of opportunity goes the ambitious stu- dent seeking a career in which he may serve his country, his fellow man, as well as himself. We, the graduating class, have many unexplored fields of work to enter. Topping the list is science with its tiny atom, which may well change our lives, or even end them. Under- standing of the atom may make pos- sible the future city we see in comic booksg make possible travel between the other planets of our universal sys- temg make life for the humblest peas- ant like that of a movie starg make a four hour work week possihleg and make the life of an average human being a hundred years long. The world has already taken the first step in the direction of this cov- eted dream. To bring this dream to reality, many more skilled hands and trained minds must be added to the small group of miracle makers who have constructed the atom bomb. These hands and minds must come from the graduating class of Elmira Free Academy, and from the grad- uating classes of thousands of other high schools in America. We, the future citizens of the world, have in our hands the power to pre- serve and make the world a land of happy, prosperous neighbors, or to completely and very efficiently de- stroy the entire world. Our Lord has let us weak mortals stumble upon a wonderful, but deadly power, and I pray that He lets us in this graduating class have the fore- sight, courage, and sense to walk down the road of peace, instead of taking the well-worn road of war. By june Fidelman Ten years ago my grandfather had pneumonia. He was ninety-six years old then. He recovered, but the shock of his illness weakened him and he died two years later. He left behind him some old Hebrew prayer books, some ornamental canes, and the clothes off his back. These were his physical legacies. But he died a rich man. He had earned the most enjoyable riches, those which come from the love of fellow man and from a true respect for God. He had the riches of a fine spirit, along with the ability to inspire his friends. For a while he lived with his daugh- ter in Brooklyn over her candy store. He was idolized by all the children in the neighborhood because of his access to what was great riches in their eyes. When his daughter turned her back, he would stuff his pockets with candy from under the counter and later hand it out to the children waiting for him outside. He enjoyed feeding the chickens which were in the back yard. Each morning before his breakfast, he did this. Such simple chores were not irksomeg they were a pleasure. As an old man, each day began for him at four o'clock in the mom- ing when he could be seen on the way to the synagogue. He started his day by straightening the books and pre- paring for the morning service. Be- cause of his zeal, he was given the key to the building. He spent the rest of the day visiting the sick and praying for them. From grandfather, we his descend- ants, inherit a precious legacy. His riches remain an invaluable memory in the minds of his children, his grand- children, and his many friends. The following is an excerpt from Edward Hofmanfs' American Legion Oratorical Contest entry which won him first prize in the Academy division of the contest. OUR LIVING CONSTITUTION By Edward Hojman What then gives our nation an age- less quality? Three things. The first is the Supreme Court, a department of government which our founding fath- ers set up and which one man de- veloped. The second is a tiny clause hidden away in the folds of the Con- stitution, setting up a method of amendment. Herein lies the secret of our Constitution's ability to exist through the years. After studying these factors, per- haps it is difficult to see their precise value. One of the best ways to do this is to imagine the nation as a huge tree. The leaves are the people of the nation, changing from year to year and yet basically the same freedom loving group. These leaves are con- trolled by the tree only through a thin stem which allows the leaves to move freely upon the breeze of desire. The limbs and branches of this enormous tree are the state and local govern- ments. They are vitally important in the running of a nation because they help in carrying the policies of the federal government to the citizens. The huge trunk is the national gov- ernment. It is composed of layer after layer of constantly growing wood- entirely independent of the leaves and branches and yet dependent on them. At the base of this great tree are the roots, representing the Constitution. These roots are the foundation for the whole tree, and as the tree grows, so the roots must grow to keep up with it. If they fail to keep up with the tree, then the tree will die and a new one must be planted. In our country the root system is constantly growing and improving and is easily matching the pace set by the rest of the tree. Thus our tree has so far avoided old age, the disease of many a fallen sys- tem. We should remember that a con- stitution does not make a nation great, but merely establishes a means by which the people can make the nation great. A constitution lives only as the people use it to better themselves and their nation. By making the United States the greatest nation the world has ever known, the American people have made our Constitution truly a living document. It is our duty as the citizens and future citizens to keep it alive. f""'N V Q- am QEQQML - ' V N ferqf Qvo if V ear ads GC' 11171 'TTEEQZ1 1 x 'fy Y , KAP ff' W ' wN3P9'1'f'W' -'Q' - A 0 X , " n'.U.,yj. f l 1, -01 3129 "H . . -Si-g lggyfifg . ty! - rfjzif' N . ,' ' H", 1 15,-' ' . gg, A x mf! iw, :fy fm V,W 1 r ' q1E'- fi? f if' f ' 4 : ' 21' 513' lf' fri' 7 'fr A , if ,cf."f'f,4,zff-' ' Lf, ' x -, Nix- K' "I" i f5jfqi','-Q'fvfV7f:7QZy-, 'E ff VZ? yf KQFNA ,4'J',YNx:S' 'WTS V fl 5 ,f A, ,Vfl :.,Z,!b-,, - JL. .,,, I,-1 inf . if f , rf -Iii?
