Cliff01'd Rogers SCHOOL CPE S WITH CHANGE
Joins Faculty IMPROVEMENTS REGULATIONS ENROLLMENT
By Jim Neher
Mr. Clifford Rogers joined the
Academy faculty this year. He
graduated from Tufts College in
1951, where he earned his A.B. de-
gree, besides playing both varsity
baseball and varsity hockey. Then
he went on to Brown University
where he earned his M.A. degree
and taught Latin, Greek, and Latin
Literature for one year. One can
plainly see that Mr. Rogers had a
very busy time in the two years
before he came to the Academy. He
also has a very busy schedule here.
This year he will be teaching Sec-
ond and Third Form Latin, coach-
ing the "Big Oaks" in intramural
football, and coaching the "C"
team in hockey. He is also plan-
ning to study for his Ph.D. at the
University. If anyone is wonder-
ing whether Mr. Rogers has time
for recreation such as tennis or
golf, his schedule will show you
how very busy he is. Besides hav-
ing the problem of adjusting to his
new teaching schedule, he must
face the tremendous job of getting
settled in his new home, buying
furniture, having his license plates
changed from Massachusetts to
Minnesota, and so forth. In spite
of his present busy schedule, Mr.
Rogers is already looking ahead

Students, returning to St. Paul
Academy at the end of summer va-
cation, found many changes in the
The hollow at the end of the
parking lot has been filled in and
a new gate added for cars leaving
the parking area. This provides
one-way trafiic and should elimi-
nate those near head-on collisions
when one gate was used for both
an entrance and an exit.
Beside the varsity hockey rink,
a big, new warming house has been
built. It is large enough to house
two hockey teams between periods
and has a 'thick wall between the
rooms so that coaching strategy
cannot be overheard.
Two new tennis courts, similar
to the ones installed last year, have
been added. All four courts are
green and are in excellent condi-
At lunch-time, students found a
dining room redecorated in light
green and white as contrasted to
the dull walls and brown ceiling of
Last, but not least, new varsity
uniforms and helmets have been
provided for the football team.

I. The bakery sales have been
continued this year by the new
council. There was a change in
bakery prices which forced the
council to change their prices, rais-
ing them a few cents. The price
list has been rearranged according-
ly. The same line-up system as
that of last year was agreed upon
II. One of the council's biggest
jobs, the United Appeal, was dis-
cussed with the proposition of do-
nating equal amounts of money to
the Community Chest and the Red
Cross. Approximate sums of money
were assigned to the First Former,
the Second Former, etc. A final
goal has not been set yet.
III. Again the student drivers
are to register with the council,
only this year the engine serial
number is to be registered also.

Three changes in school regula-
tions have been announced and will
be effective this year.
Saturday morning sessions will
begin at 8:30 A.M. instead of at
8:45 and will close at 10:30.
Khaki trousers may now be worn
as part of the school uniform dur-
ing the warm weather.
Upon completion of the new exit
gate, cars leaving the parking lot
must turn right on Davern.
The news that Bob Ordway had
died of polio was a sad blow to
everyone at the Academy. He be-
came ill while sailing in the regatta
at Lake Minnetonka and died a few
days later, on August 21st.
Bob,,who was about to begin his
senior year at Yale, was graduated
from the Academy in the Class of
1950. Unable to play on varsity
teams, he yet made a big contribu-
tion to their success as one of the
ablest and most cheerful managers
we have had. In the military he
was a member of both the Crack
Squad and the Manual of Arms
Team, attaining finally the rank of
First Lieutenant. Bob also sang in
the Glee Club, took part in dra-
matics, and helped to manage the
Now and Then and the Spar. He
was twice a winner of the Smith
Cup for Junior Oratory, and few
who heard his entertaining and
authoritative talks to the school on
hunting safety will never forget
them. Skilled in hunting and sail-
ing, he was also a fine tennis play-
er and an exceptional golfer.
More important than any of these
accomplishments, however, were
the essential qualities of person-
ality and character that won for
Bob a tremendous fund of affec-
tion and high regard. His rare
combination of courage and humor,
of gentleness and strength, made
him a boy of whom we could all be
proud. One of his classmates, writ-
ing about him in the Spar, empha-
sized his friendliness and quiet
charm, and then said what has
become increasingly evident since
graduation, that Bob had won "the

year got off to a flying start Mon-
day, September 14, with a full
schedule for the one-hundred
eighty-one enrolled students. Reg-
ular classes were held on the first
day, as contrasted to half day ses-
sions in previous years. A regular
athletic period followed.
With the exception of the fourth

the total enrollment is four less
than it was last year.
In addition to the twenty-two
new Prep Formers, the following
new students have been enrolled:
First Form: Caton, Groth and
Second Form: Burgwald, Dau-
gherty, Erskine, Freeman, H. and
Third Form: Andrews, Hum-
phrey, Langland, Nelson, G. and
Fourth Form: Klein.
Fifth Form: Irvine, H.
The largest number of students
is to be found in the Second Form.
There are thirty-eight pupils who
are divided into three sections.

Following voice tests, Mr. Paul
Wilkinson, director, has announced
this year's members of the Acade-
