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."
