403 'VV ffii c ' - avg -ii 07. v 'L' ,L og " Q ls' PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OF THE ST. PAUL ACADEMY, ST. PAUL, MINN. 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.
