Advertising . . . . . . . . . .Circulation Norb Winter Roger Countryman . .Photographer Editorial Staff: Dave Seymour Len Johnson- George Anderegg John Stafford EDITORIAL Since the addition of Mr. Ras- mussen to the Academy staff as athletic director and varsity coach, great strides have been made in the school's athletic development, not only spiritually, but physically as well. Certainly one of the greatest advances came into effect this year as the rental plan of issuing foot- ball equipment was adopted. As part of the program, the varsity was outfitted in new elastic skin- tight pants and new helmets. There are many advantages to this program. Coach has often re- marked how well the equipment fits the lads now, and there is a de- cline in injuries this year. Previous to this plan, it was not uncommon to see boys walking around in foot- ball garb many sizes too large, bought with the future in mind. The equipment is on the whole, of better quality, thus offering bet- ter protection. The school uses up- to-date methods in taking care of the equipment. Otherwise it might lie stagnant nine months of the year in a mouldy drawer, or, after the senior year, just go altogether out of circulation. In the near future, we hope to see this plan expanded into all sports at the Academy. It would make the whole athletic system run more smoothly, and keep SPA sports on the upgrade. Sk Sk S N0 TOWELS It is the duty of the Now and Then to act as a vehicle to express the views of the students and bring things of importance to the sight of the powers that be. We refer to the absence of towels for the first team every other day two weeks ago. This necessitates either chang- ing from football equipment direct- ly to uniforms, or using wet, second hand towels. Neither is a pleasant situation. We realize that the lack of towels may be merely an over- sight on the part of someone, but it is not appreciated, and most cer- tainly does not aid in morale and spirit. -144 Left to right: Morton, Juniors Feature The goal of the Junior class is to find unity in its diversity. The class is exceptional in its variety, hav- ing scholars and athletes as well as auto-maniacs and socialites. Likewise, the class boasts mathe- matical wizards, electrical geniuses, and a number of waifs! The class has yet to develop the cohesiveness and "esprit-de-corps" that prevailed in many Academy classes, and still not sacrifice the varied talents of its members. As a class of seniors, this group of prodigies and characters will leave an indelible mark in the annals of the Academy, providing a strong class spirit is built and main- tained. As the members of the class now look down on the lower formers, they recall earlier seasons such as the one of countless skating parties, when girls were considered targets for snowballs rather than goddesses to be approached with bended knee! Likewise, they have seen the many developments in the grounds, curriculum, and activi- ties effected by Mr. Read since he took over the reins from Mr. X, We Andere gg, Townsend, Morgan Variety in Class Briggs. The class takes particular pride in the accomplishments of athletes Hoff and Crosby, poli- ticians Levy and Kyle, scholars Anderegg and Morgan, socialites Ford and Parish, and scientists Countryman and Spilhaus. But what would the class be without eminent individualists such as 'tStinky" French and "The Open- Mouthed Wonder", C. Bruce Plow- man? All Fifth Formers are cocoons on the verge of blossoming forth on the gaudy wings of seniority. Next year they will find themselves con- fronted with responsibilities of school leadership. This is the year they must be quietly preparing to assume the privileges and duties of their approaching seniority. As the members approach their senior year, they begin to realize that all too soon they will be looking back upon their years at the Academy with nostalgia. May they pull to- gether in the months ahead, that they can look back upon their final years at the Academy with a feel- ing of satisfaction and true accom- plishment. Some memorable comments seem to come from the lab. During one of Mr. Bray's lectures, someone said something was burning. Mr. Bray hastily assured him, "Not un- less someone is thinking too hard" . . . And in another class, Bill Beadie was asked by a fellow toiler how to spell chlorophyll. "I-P-A-N-A", he answered . . . Nowadays, Mr. Fitch is providing his students with excuses. While everyone was assembling, he in- quired: "Are you talking Levy, or is your jaw just napping?" It's a 6th form history class, which daily pits the wits and in- telligence of Mr. Schofield against the equally clever seniors. On this day, Opstad was challenged. Mr. Schofield: "Opstad, are you listening ?" Opstad: "Yes sir." Mr. Schofield: "Then what did I just Say?" In fruitless concentration, Don pondered the situation, then ral- lied, and answered: "I was listen- ing to Ward, sir." On another is a series of inter- esting scouting trips, this time t0 Shattuck, John Stafford and Mike Armstrong bought their lunches at a bakery shop, and then proceeded directly to a drugstore counter, where they ate the merchandise to the accompaniment of a nickel root beer . . . Mr. Ameluxen referred to a regular tetrahedron in his solid geometry class, to which Tilden re- plied, "Any relation to the dino- sauer?" . . . Bill Budd and George Burr were once referred to as two Boy Scouts when looking for ads . . . Silly Boy Dept.-One Prep former shouted from his position at the lunch table, "Everything - and make mine white meat."

No. 2 Vol. XLVII MONDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1953 C01'HCi1N0feS OFFICERS ELECTED GORDOIN T. SCHOFIELD Gordon T. Schofield came to the Saint Paul Academy in 1952, and took over the History classes for the fifth and sixth forms. Many masters have come to the Academy, but few have been so well liked as Mr. Schofield. His topics of dis- cussion and his quick wit are en- joyed by all, and especially by his history students. He has the ability to give his students an excellent background in history and yet make it the student's favorite class. Mr. Schofield has an excellent scholastic background. He attend- Gordon Schofield ed Williams College and obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1948. He went to officers' training school at Holy Cross and obtained a Bachelor of Naval Science degree there. For three .years, he taught at Trinity - Pawling School in New York and then went to summer school at Harvard where he did graduate work in history. He went to Boston University for the year' '51-'52 and received his Master of Arts degree. Immediately upon his arrival at the Academy Mr. Schofield was put in charge of the Junior Varsity football squad. He coached his team through a fine season of five wins and two losses, and at the fCont'd on page 4, col. 3J I. Plans for the United Appeal continued to hold a prominent place in discussions as the final goal was set and the drive was launched by President Driscoll. Amounts are to be set aside for the particular charities later. Also, in this field, the Red Cross made an appeal for gift boxes to be sent to peoples in need. It was suggested that this be a lower form project, handled perhaps by the class officers. II. The Football Dance was dis- cussed among proposals that the surplus money, if existing, might go to the meager Student Council fund. The dance, to be held shortly after the Blake game, is to be en- larged if possible. III. On Nov. 5, 6, and 7 the council is sending two to four dele- gates to the Minnesota Student Council convention at St. Louis Park. The convention's purpose is to discuss the functions of student councils. IV. The Now and Then staff proudly explained their plans for replacing the SPAR by binding the Now and Thens. All were impress- ed by a sample of what this publi- cation will look like when finished. Besides being economic, the idea is a step forward in the attempt to record the school year. V. Lastly, it was proposed that the council might supervise the job of cheerleading. Experiences of a Bakery Salesman By George Anderegg It was Monday, September 21, 10:28 A.M. The chief called me into his office, confessed he was running a goodies ring: bismarcks, rolls, doughnuts. My job: sell 'em. 10:29 A.M. I was standing in the basement hall. I had my back to the wall, a stout table in front of me. I was ready for the at- tack. 10:30 A. M. They came. A crazy, screaming, mob of creatures of all shapes and sizes. They poured down the staircases, oozed out under doors. They were every- where. They kept shouting moronic questions like the price of dough- nuts. You couldn't blame them, though. They just wanted to get the facts. 10:35 A.M. I had been pushing fCont'd on page 4, col. 45 By Dave Seymour On Monday, September 28, 1953, elections were held for officers of each form. Every year a Presi- dent, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer of each form are elected. These officers hold an im- portant part in the school and class activities. It is the President's job to run the class properly during each class meeting. The oflicers have the responsibility of collect- ing money from their classes for the different charities. It is the job of the officers to see that their class is a well-united body. Printed here is a list of the class officers in order of President, Vice-President, and Secretary-Treasurer: Third Formers Receive Tests By Len Johnson Recently, our freshmen have undergone tests of various sorts, sponsored by the University of Minnesota. These tests have been given statewide, and cover a large field of subjectsg they include co- operative math, English, social studies, science, and a psychologi- cal test. The aptitude test is made up of a battery of shorter tests which were drawn up to test the student's judgment and, reasoning. These tests include space relations, lan- guage usage, abstract reasoning, numerical ability, clerical speed and accuracy, and mechanical reason- ing. All these tests are placed under the heading of differential aptitude tests. The general purposes of these tests are summarized in a manual describing these tests. 1. To provide the student with the knowledge of the type of studies for which 'he is best suited. 2. To provide information about the student to high school and col- lege counselors, teachers, and ad- ministrators. 3. To assist high schools and colleges to identify early in their academic careers students who have talent for college and whose needs can be satisfied by various colleges.

Freeman Students Attend Survival Meeting By Don Bacon On Thursday, September 24th, a group of Academy Seniors and Juniors, accompanied by Mr. Read and Mr. Schofield, attended the Highland Survival Meeting at the Highland Theater. The purpose of this meeting was to show people what can happen during an atomic attack and what to do in the event of one. The meeting was opened by Major Rick Driscoll leading the assembly in the Pledge of Allegi- ance. Movies were shown depict- ing situations one might encounter during an actual bomb attack, after which Dr. Hanns Schwyzer, author- ity on medical care and radiation, spoke to the assembly and answer- ed questions.

NOW AND THEN Page 3 Coefficients S A TIPS SH TTUCK, 9-0 Explained By Frenzel This year marks an important change in the lower school athletic program. As many of the alumni and parents have made inquiries about the new system, I will at- tempt to explain it in some detail here. The three former squads, the A, B, and C teams, are replaced by the Acorns, Oak Leaves, and the Big Oaks. Aside from the change in names, the major difference lies in the personnel of each team. Under the old coefiicient system, the boys were classified on the var- ious teams in accordance with their height and weight. Thus the small- est boys would be on the C team, the next smallest on the B team, and so on up. The new system clas- sifies the boys according to forms. The Acorn teams are comprised of prep formers, the Oak Leaves of first formers, the Big Oaks of sec- ond formers. There are cases in which extremely large or small boys may play with the teams above or below him, however, as these are not numerous, competi- tion is still carried on mainly on a intra-form basis. Upon reaching his third form year, a boy may play with the second team or var- sity, providing that his athletic prowess warrants it, but it is more likely that he will again be on a form team, this time the freshmen or "C" squad. Here he will be playing under somewhat the same system as the first team, and here he will be introduced to his first outside competition. Another rather radical change is that all outside competition fi.e. the Blake games! has been cut out, and the teams are operating on a purely intramural basis. Objec- tions have been raised both to this and the former method of having two games with Blake each season, and have even brought up the ques- tion of competition with outside schools employing the same sys- tem. Yet the majority seems to be in favor of this program because of the classification of boys in an age group, rather than in a height- weight group. This year's Acorn teams are under the direction of Mr. Hunter, while the Oak Leaves and Big Oaks are coached by Mr. Hudson and Mr. Rogers respectively. The cap- tains of the squads are as follows: Acorns, Mullery and Platt, Oak Leaves, Roe and Osborn, Big Oaks, Ward and Beadie. The Now and Then staff wishes to extend its heartiest congratulations to Rick Driscoll on winning the captaincy of the 1953 SPA football team. Hoff Outruns Shads, Misses Ball-A Mayo Photo Concordia Holds By Pete Ward A highly overconfident SPA eleven played to a 14 to 14 tie in their first league tilt with Con- cordia Academy on Friday, October 25. Plagued throughout the game by penalties, the Acads had two crucial touchdowns called back. SPA fumbled twice, both resulting in touchdowns for the Comets. After an exchange of punts in the first quarter, the Bluesox scored on a pass from Jake Sea- bury to Tom Hoff which covered 40 yards. Hoff converted, making the score at the end of the quar- ter 7-0. SPA fumbled on a punt return with Concordia recovering on the Acad's 40-yard line. The Comets proceeded to drive the ball down to the nine yard line where Kramer scored on an off-tackle slant. Brehmer plunged over for the extra point. With thirty sec- onds left, the Bluesox scored on SPA to 14-14 Tie another 40-yard pass from Rod Bacon to Hoff. Hoff converted to give the Acads a 14-7 halftime ad- vantage. In the middle of the third period, Rahn picked up a loose fum- ble on the Comets 40-yard line and ran to the SPA 8-yard line where Pete Frenzel hauled him down from behind. The Comets then scored both the touchdown and the extra point making the score 14-14. With minutes remaining in the third quarter, Pete Frenzel went off cen- ter to score on a 50-yard touch- down romp, but the play was called back due to a clipping penalty. Both teams held firmly in the fourth quarter to knot it up at 14-14 as the gun went off ending the game. The Acads gained 290 yards on rushing and passing, while the Comets gained 150 yards. The Bluesox held a 12 to 7 advantage in first downs. By Thomas Hoff On Saturday, the 3rd of October, the SPA football team rebounded from its disappointing tie with Concordia to whip Shattuck 9-0. Having scouted the Shads well, the Acads set up an over-shifted de- fense which stifled the Shattuck running attack, while holding their passing game to almost no net gain. The two teams battled on somewhat even terms throughout the first quarter. The Bluesox be- gan to march in the second quar- ter, and reached the Shad 35. From there, Rod Bacon threw a beautiful pass to Tom Hoff at the five, and he scored untouched. Hoff's kick was good. In the second half, Jake Seabury injured on the first play and the game. The Acad offense was never quite able to get going, the defensive unit presented was left but a fine example of what fight and determination can do for a team, as they smothered an offense which, the week before, had run up 38 points. Only in the last quar- ter, when both teams became tired, did Shattuck put on a sustained drive. This carried them to the five yard line just as the game ended. Pete Frenzel led the offense in this victory, while Peter Ward, Don Opstad, and Johnny Morgan 'stood out on defense. lt was Ward who blocked a Shattuck punt which re- sulted in a safety, giving SPA its extra two points. This was un- doubtedly a fine team effort. Kemper Motor Co.
