giidvllj . Q19 ". nn I n. . of Q Elljlfii PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OF THE ST. PAUL ACADEMY, ST. PAUL, MINN. vol. XLVII MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1953 No. 1 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- Clifford Rogers 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 fCont'd on page 2J By Burt Bigelow Students, returning to St. Paul Academy at the end of summer va- cation, found many changes in the school's appearance. 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- tion. 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 year. Last, but not least, new varsity uniforms and helmets have been provided for the football team. Council Notes By Tom Milton 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 by all. 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. fCont'd on page 25 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. Robert Ford Ordway 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 fCont'd on page 29 By Charles Tilden St. Paul Academy's fifty-third 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 and sixth forms, there are new students in every class, although 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 Irvine, J. Second Form: Burgwald, Dau- gherty, Erskine, Freeman, H. and Woodward. Third Form: Andrews, Hum- phrey, Langland, Nelson, G. and Warren. 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. Vocal Prospects Reported Good By Rod Bacon Following voice tests, Mr. Paul Wilkinson, director, has announced this year's members of the Acade- my Glee Club and A Cappella group. Mr. Wilkinson expressed enthu- siasm over the results of the tests. "Many boys who didn't make the Glee Club last year, have made it this year," he added. The Glee Club's first appearance will be in a League concert in No- vember. Then, on the last day be- fore Christmas vacation, there will be a concert in the gymnasium open to parents and friends. The A Cappella group for this year is composed entirely of sen- iors. Last year, both juniors and seniors were represented. In addi- tion to veteran members Rick Dris- coll and Len Johnson, the group in- cludes Don and Rod Bacon, Dave Beadie, George Burr, Doc Mayo, Jim Neher, Charles Tilden, Pete Ward, Norb Winter, Pete Frenzel and Bill Budd.
