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.

A TRIBUTE tCont'd from page 35 lent, save for the footsteps of the managers, echoing through thy cavernous passages. And after the battle is fought and finished, I see thee again, filled with the radiant joy of victory-or cloaked in the gloom of defeat. Thus it has been for many years, locker room, and thus it shall be for years after I am goneg for my time is but a fragment of thine historyg like the Sphinx, you shall never die.

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."
