' 1 ft' ,"i':f 1 T THE TQRCH Published by TI-IE SENIDR CLASS ELMIRA FREE ACADEMY ELMIRA, NEW YORK FORE ORD "This is the time of your lives," our parents have often reminded us as they have referred to our high school years. Only recently have we come to realize that these four years have been so priceless. There are so many varied aspects to this period, so many items to be remembered and treasured after graduation-those sun-drenched noons on the school lawn, the companionable confusion in the halls between classes, the end- less whirl of games and dances, plays and pro- grams, the ever-familiar faces of students and faculty. Behind all this is the classroom-the basic purpose of school, the fundamental aim of education. We, the graduates of 1952, are grateful that in E. F. A. we have had the opportunity of living and learning and the privilege of enjoy- ing the 'gtime of our lives.', VICTOR IMPECIATO MARTIN HARRIGAN DEDICATIU Through their abilities as competent social studies teachers and football coaches, UVic." Impeciato and "Marty" Harrigan have both imparted knowledge to their students and advanced the prestige of our football team. Largely because of their assiduous efforts, our team was able to win the 1951 Southern Tier Conference football title. Besides fulfilling their athletic responsibili- ties, Mr. lmpeciato acting as head coach and Mr. Harri- gan as assistant, have inspired good sportmanship and school spirit among the students. The class of 1952 feels honored to dedicate its yearbook to these two men, not only because of their outstanding achievements in sports, but also because of their sterling qualities of leadership. 3 ALMA Dear to us always, This school and all its walls, Thou'lt ever with us stay, Fair E. F. A. When we are gone from thee, Still thou shalt ever be, Fairest on land and sea, Dear E. F. A. 4 ATER Our hearts may well grieve, So soon to part from thee, But dear old school, believe, We're true always. True hearts and friends well-met Thy charms are with us yet, Nor can we e'er forget Fair E. F. A. The Senior Annual commemorates the activities of the past four years of schooling. For the most part, these years have been joy- ous and carefree. They have been a gift to you by parents who have provided for your needs, so that "the days of your youthn might be happy ones. They have been a time of opportunity provided by a democratic society that desires each individual to develop his potentialities to the full. In this sense, you have had "the time of your livesf' But the good things of life do not come to a close with graduation from high school. DR. HELMKA P Throughout our high school years, Dr. Albert Helmkamp has been not only the ad- ministrator directing the school as a whole, but also a personal friend promoting the best interests of the members of the class of '52, As an educational adviser in our senior year, and a counselor in all of our social affairs, Dr. Helmkamp has contributed much toward making these four memorable years "thc time of our lives." True, responsibilitieswill increase with ma- turity, and life will show some of its sterner aspects. But the opportunity to grow and to share in an ever-widening vista will remain. If you face the future with zest and hope, if you play your part bravely, the great adven- ture of living will provide in new and unex- pectedrways the joy of achievement. In this sense, may you often experience "the time of your lives." 1416011 E. J! DIRECTORS Many of our students wonder at the sight of the frequent visitors who appar- ently know their way through our halls and to our classrooms. Chances are that it is either Mr. Osmond Wall, Academic Director of the high schools, Mr. Wil- liam Dobberstein, Director of Guidance, Mr. Elbert Ryerson, Art Director, Gerald Loughlin, Director of Audio- Visual Education, Mr. Glilford Hard- ing, Commercial Director in the high schools, Miss Kathryn Pollock, Home Economics Director, Mr. Roscoe Tar- bell, Industrial Arts and Vocational Education Director, Mr. George Ab- bott, Director of Music, or Mr. Roland George, Director of Physical Education and Health Instruction. Each in his specialized Held serves as a city co- ordinator who helps keep our courses unified, and our school running smooth- ly. ,lack-of-all-Hades fjak'-ov-ol' t'radz',,l iz. one zeho ran do any kind of work or business. Syn. Silas Parry. Yes, Mr. Parry is the jack-of-all-trades described by IfVr'bste'r,s Collegiate Dic- tionary. Students think of him chiefly as the man who patrols the halls and watches attendance, but these are only two of his many duties. He is also the man who takes care of the lockers and conducts the lost-and-found depart- ment. Excuses ure his major headache. Least known of his activities is teaching, which brings out his subtle humor and keeps his pupils on their toes. Surely both students and teachers of the Academy are greatly indebted to this dynamo of energy and helpfulness. MR. P RRY Standing7Harding, Tarbell, Loughlin, Abbott.

F. A. have slipped into past history. It seems as though only yesterday we trudged up the broad front steps of our new Alma Mater, nervously gulped a deep breath, and strode through the doors to a new life. A thrilling thing was happening, each one of us was becoming a freshman! With all the excitement that comes with the fall class elections, we made the excellent choices of John Morrell, president, Ann Sassanog vice president, Elaine Limoncelli, secretary, and Tom Addabbo, treasurer. The guidance and friendship of our advisers, Miss McTiernan and Mr. Jackson, aided us at all times. We were justified in being proud of our first dance, the 'iFrosh Frolici' given on May 6, 1949. Now we had passed thc crucial year and returned to the "old routine" as sophomores. After a rousing period of campaigning, Tom Horigan, Mary Manning, Mary Lou Leach, and Bob Colucei emerged victorious as our new class leaders. We developed a vigorous class spirit that year, making it one never to be forgotten. Everyone enjoyed himself at our "Cupid,s Fling" on February 10. My, how the time went by! We were bewildered, yet proud, when thc fall of our junior year arrived, and we could boast of being upperclassmen. We realized that we would have more activities going on this year, so we made certain of having capable class officers by selecting Robert Williams, Jean Grant, Virginia Car- roll, and Tom Addabbo. We started in with a bang, due to the success of our '6Back to School Dance" held in September. On January 14 we capitalized on everyone's favorite rabbit, Harvey, and entitled our dance the "Harvey Hop." While our happiness and security as a class were developing, our treasury was growing by leaps and bounds. Everyone lauded the success of our April Junior Class Play, a merry bit of entertainment named "Spring F ever." - The weeks whizzed by, and at last june l, better remembered as junior Day, brought with it a com- bination of frilly white dresses, neatly pressed suits, and sparkling red and white ribbons. That evening a twinkling silver tree, emerald grass, and a tranquil pond created an enchanting atmosphere in "the ballroom." Tom Sheeder and Nancy Sadler reigned over that magic scene as King and Queen of our "Junior Promf' It just couldn't be true! After experiencing three puzzling years of mixed emotions, we reigned supreme as seniors. Again we opened the year by presenting a dance, this time called the 'SSchool Daze Seamperf' 40 Soon we exercised our voting privilege once more and chose our last high school class officers. After a close balloting the results were: Dan Agan, president, Sonia McConnell, vice-president, Mary Manning, secretary, and Monroe Whiting, treasurer. Mr. Jackson remained our adviser, but Miss West replaced Miss McTiernan who had assumed responsibility for the V index. "The ole Southside, she ain't what she used to beli' This victorious cry, combined with the clanging of the Erie Bell, proved to elated Academyites that, for the first time since the division of the city football team, E. F. A. had trampled over S. H. S. 21 to 0. Support for the "miracle" team surged during the season and reached its peak on November ll, when E. F. A. defeated Binghamton North 19 to 0. Yes! This was our year, for the Blue Devils now ruled as Southern Tier Champions. Our classmates will long laud the teamwork of the fellows and the two terrific coaches "Vic" Impeciato and "Marty" Harrigan. After our victory over our cross-town rivals, our class celebrated by presenting "The Quarterback Sneak," an after-game dance. Just before Thanksgiving, we staged our Senior Class Play, "Men Are Like Streetcarsf' under the able direction of Miss Betty-Jane Loomis. After the Christmas holiday, we returned to our planning for "The Sno-Ballf, All the proceeds from this dance were to go to the building fund of The Arnot-Ogden Memorial Hospital for a plaque in memory of our classmates John Morrell, Maureen Collins, Constance Florack, and Elaine Limoncelli. Months of planning brought us the morning upon which we awoke to realize that Senior Day was here at last! Each of us was experiencing a feeling we found difficult to describe. It was a time of pride and satisfaction tempered by sadness. We recalled many events and persons we would long cherish. Prominent among them, were the faces of four who, although they were not able to be there in person, somehow seemed to be part of our experiences. Our banquet and our Prom furnished us with more memorable moments, and we were reluctant to con- clude them when the wee hours of the morning crept upon us. Throughout our four years, we have been indebted to Dr. Helmkamp for his understanding and assist- ance with our various plans, to Mr. Parry for his many indispensable services, to Mr. Jackson, Miss West and Miss McTiernan for their advice on class problems, to Mrs. O'Sullivan for her assistance in Usher's Club, to Mrs. Hutchinson and Miss Chambers for their patience and endless help during the publishing of "The Torch," and to all our teachers for trying to prove to us that learning can bring a pleasurable reward for every bit of hard work invested. Thank you, most of all, dear E. F. A. for all the experiences which make us now realize that the past four years have truly been "the time of our lives."

To aid students in securing the most from their high school courses and to help prepare them for eventual vocations, the Academy's Guidance Department func- tions. At least semi-annually, one of the seven advisers contacts each student and discusses his problems and progress. The responsibility of the eounselors is great, because they have a two-fold objective- -to know the students and to advise them with reference to courses best suited to their individual interests and abilities. In addition, the Guidance Department serves as a source of information, supplying numerous catalogs and bulletins for the students' use. The guidance counselors are: Dr. Helmkzunp, Mrs. Hutchinson, Mr. jackson, Miss G. Miller, Mr. Sherman, Mrs. O,Sullivan, and Mr. VVeaver. GUIDANCE HEALTH The Academy's Health Department plays a significant part in the lives of nearly twelve hundred students. A familiar sight in the halls of E. F. A. is Mrs. Cleary, our amiable school nurse. By her expert admin- istration of first aid, she has often proved true the proverb, "A friend in need is a friend indeed." In addi- tion to her work within the building, she makes many home visits, checking on absentecs. Not to be overlooked in maintaining a vigorous student body are the annual health examinations. In these Dr. Bloch plays a major role. Specialized tests include the essential X-ray and hearing check-ups. Ob- viously, such a complete health program contributes much to the well-being of the student body as a whole, 55 1 T1 EQ: Af 3 , K .

Martin Wenzel tearing his hair because "Hooter" Whiting and his base drum were on the off beat, or because the violins were getting out of tune. Actually, though, it is remarkable what this organization can produce in its limited re- hearsal time. One might have heard the orchestra practicing the "Doll Dance," 'LSiboney," S'March from Carmenf, 'Spanish Dance,', or the HSyncopated Clock" in prepara- tion for the annual Spring Concert. Incidentally, this concert gave the public an opportunity to appreciate the results of all these efforts. Perhaps some of us should consider how much of their time the orchestra players give to the school. At the beginning of our assemblies we have the strains of a familiar march, during our school plays we are enter- tained by their selections, and in their free periods we can hear them diligently practicing their parts in room IUO. Yes, the Academy owes its orchestra a great deal of thanks. ORCHESTR Isl I'!l7l'-Rllllfllllllgll. Pmkop, Tolbert, Clinton. Zrzfi VIIZI'--Illl7L'lll2ll. Nlllflill, Strung, Pirolfi, Tlloulzls, Bauer.

The group started the year with gusto at the first home foot- ball game when it entertained the crowd with a startling half-time show. Then. later in the season, the band collaborated with the Southside Band to put on an amazing performance at the intra-city game. After the football season, the band began to prepare for its many concerts in the city schools. Such numbers as Whirting Bobby, Kolomefz, and Axleep in the Deep ffeaturing Buzzy Bauerj will long he re- membered. Still another activity of the band was participation in various city parades. Through its many musical ven- tures the band has gained in both conti- dence and skill.

In order that the completed work might be as professional as possible, four girls attended a yearbook conference in New York City in October, returning with numerous helpful hints. The Torch ofiicc, a beehive of activity, has hummed with the in- dustry of this zealous group. Planning the Hdummyn was a strenuous task. Many hours after school were required to put it in final order. Efliciency-plus describes the way Virginia Carroll managed the responsible office of editor-in-chief. Ginnyis patience and unceasing efforts were an inspiration to all who worked with her. No less enthusi- .W astic were Jean Grant and Ed Boggs, co-editors. Richards Bauer, art Mrs. Cl5lia Hutchinson editor, gave an adept hand to the book along with Arthur Goodrich, Liierary Adviser Leonard Giarmoli, and Monroe VVhiting. As sports editor, John Mur- ray provided accurate accounts of our victorious athletes. Together with these students worked Mary Lou Coe, Sonia McConnell, Arline Grier, Shirley Fidelman, Torn Sheeder, Pat Naylor, Brian Flynn, Harris Kenner, Mary Lou Rohrbaugh, John Paul Thomas, Bob Entley, and Barbara Rosenbloom. Of course, the yearbook would not have been possible without the marvelous assistance of Mrs. Celia Hutchinson, faculty adviser. The 1952 Torch became a worthy publication through the interest, skill, and tireless efforts of those who created it.

Through the conscientious efforts of Donna Albertson, business manager, a precedent was set in the number of subscriptions sold. Donna conducted one of the most intense campaigns in the history of the Torch, ably aided by Catherine Plunkett, sales manager. Besides selling subscriptions, the Business Staff solieited sponsor- ship under the supervision of Shirley Oelsner. Those who earned a position on the staff by turning in at least fifty dollars were Paul Babitz, John Daddona, Ursula Shappee, Barbara Moore, Peter lN4iles, Robert O'Brien, Julianne Ryan, Patricia Mullen. and Margaret Costello. The funds of the group were managed by Joyce Gilroy, treasurer. In charge of the portraits and photographs this year was efficient Judie Kusler. It was no easy task, for Judie had to make certain that no senior or group picture was missing, So that the printers would have no problem of illegibility. Shirley Horton, Teresa Majchrzak, and Lois Andrus accurately typed all the material. i lhe unusual competency of this year's Business Staff, supported by the active interest of Miss Eleanor Chambers. contributed greatly to the success of this Torfh, TCRCH BUSINESS STAFF Isl rnzu-Albertson, Kuslcr, Andrus, Moore, Plunkett, Oelsner, Majehrzak. 2nr1 mu'-Shappee, Horton, Babill, Miles, 0'l-Brien, Ryan, Costello, Dadtlrma, Mullen. 71 Editor ...., News Editor ..

The midyear campaign brought the radio program "Young Widder Green" to E. F. A. upperclass listen- ers over the Neuter Broadcasting System. The under- classmen were entertained by a take-off on the famous radio program "Twenty Questionsf' Advertising, a major responsibility of the business staff, was ably promoted under the student leader- ship of Jean Roush, Credit is due the business staff for keeping the Vindex solvent by means of advertising, subscriptions, and an occasional school dance.

Rundcll. A school newspaper represents a challenge. For the Vindex staff, meeting this challenge gave the mem- bers the "time of their livesnga time to function as a team, to learn new skills, and to accept greater re- sponsibilities. In the interests of the school as a whole, the staff members have tried to publish a paper which would keep teachers and students informed on school activitiesgschool policies, class and cluli news, sports. and social events. For the first time in twenty-seven years, novices on the staff began work under the leadership of new advisers also. Miss Ellen McTiernan and Miss Eliza- Scoop! beth Deneen shared the advisory work which had formerly been done by Mrs. Jeannette Deuel. The Vindex producers were justly proud to learn that the Columbia Scholastic Press Association had given the Vindex second place rating in the national competition.

Both setbacks were dealt the little Blue Devils by the Ithaca Juniors, 20-0 and 20-7. The V.'s swamped the Watkins HB" team, 39-0, defeated Heights, 38-6, and over powered their crosstown rivals, Southside, 18-7. The experience gained by the E. F.

F. A. finished in a second place tie in the rugged Southern Tier Con- ference. In spite of the loss of eight last year's lettermen, Coach Bill Wipfier molded his inexperienced crew into a consistent winner. The 15-5 record compiled by this year's team was the best for an Elmira quintet since the mid-thirties. After two early-season setbacks at the hands of Binghamton Central and Cortland, the Blue Devils swept through their re- maining games with the exception of a 46-41 defeat to Johnson City and a controversial loss to Endicott, 63-61. During this period, the Academy continued its supremacy over their cross- town rivals, Southside, with 67-42 and 52-32 victories. Because of their excellent performances during the season, Angie Pizzo, Junior Long, and Bill Williamson were nominated to the S. T. C.'s All Star second team. The experience gained by this year's squad will aid greatly in the success of the 1952-53 quintet. 83 Ist row-Hudson, Brett, Hurst, Maloney, Holmes, Mahar, Coach Impeciato. 2nd row-Chappel, Hartmett, Todd, Cricchi, Hughes. 3rd row-Spriggs, Bassel, Cassidy, Festag, Cook, Barteau, Manager.

But for a few shots which hit the basket and bounced away, many of the close scores would have been reversed. However, this very fact made many of the Junior Varsity games more thrilling than the corresponding varsity contests. The experience which the J.

F. A. Blue Devils completed the 1951 season with a respectable record, winning scven out of eleven decisions. They would have finished second in the Southern Tier Conference, except for a costly de- feat at the hands of Vestal in the last game of the season. Bill Williamson, the Academy first baseman, led the team in many departments. He paced the squad in batting with a lusty .450 average, collected the most hits, 18, including four triples and two home runs, and drove in ten runs. Jerry Cady was second to Williamson with a .355 average, and Ron West finished the season with a .318 batting average. Frank Gush, the Blue Devil's second sacker, lcd the team in R. B. l.'s with twelve. Lefty john Claset was the ace of the pitching staff, although he was often hampered by hard luck. Ray Thompson compiled the best record, winning three games without a defeat, while Sophomore Nick Bacrile won two out of three decisions. Claset led the moundsmen in strikeouts with 59 in 42 innings. The prospects for next scason are fair, since Coach Wipfler will have six lettcrmen to form a nucleus for the 1952 squad. Next ycar's edition of the Blue Devils should rank high in the S. T. C. standings at the climax of the season. I P Ted Berry, Floyd Wilcox, and Bill Myers provided the nucleus of the 1951 E. F. A. track team. Around these three returning lettermen, Coach Peckally built a fine team which finished near the top in many meets. Although the Blue Devils got off to a slow start in the relay meet at Endicott, they finished second in a triangular meet at Ithaca. The Academy forces placed third in a quadrangular meet with johnson City, Endicott, and Southside. Next, the Blue Devils were host to Binghamton North, Central, and S. H. S. The outcome of this thrilling meet was: Binghamton North 57V4, E. F. A. 44, S. H. S. IBM, Binghamton Central 125. After swamping Athens, 77-32, they tied with Southside for first in the Geneva Relays in which eight teams participated. E. F. A. then proceeded to defeat their local rivals, Southside High School, by a GSVQ- -1OM score. In the Western Zone Meet at Parker Field, the Academy finished second to the Little Red of Ithaca. E. F. A. qualihed three boysffBerry, Myers, and Wilcox-for the Section III Meet at Cornell. How- ever, Ted Berry was the only one to place, tying for first place in the high jump. At West Point, Berry cap- tured fifth place in the high jump, attaining the best jump of his career, 5' HM". Ted Berry was the teamls most consistent winner, piling up a total of 68 points. He Hnished first in the 100- yard dash six times and seven times in the high jump. Myers, Wilcox, and john Snover were the other winners on the squad. Since most of last year's top point makers were lost through graduation, the Blue Devils of 1952 will find it difficult to better the impressive record of the 1951 team. TRACK ' 1 ' - IAA., ...
