In September, 1921 we entered the Elmira Free Academy as green a
mob of freshmen as ever wandered down its aged halls. Then came a time
when we were informed that "The September Freshmen will report in the
auditorium at 3 145 for the election of officers." XVell, in we went and chose
VVilfred Booth, jr., president. Later we presented a play "The Three
NVho Pass XVhile The Lentels Boil." XVeren't we great then? But wait
until you recall our Sophomore year. john Henry NVay was president.
As juniors we returned for our last year at E. F. A. NVe elected John
Then came january 28 with its historic moving to our new home,
Southside High. VVe were the first class to organize. Our officers were:
XVilliam M. French, presidentg Dorothy Durell, vice presidentg Leonella
Schaad, secretaryg George Enyedy, treasurerg Miss Henrichon, Patron Saint.
Later Mary Catherine Daly was elected to succeed Miss Durrell, resigned.
Seniors! The Hrst class to be graduated from Southside! That was
our chant upon coming here for our iirst full year. During the hrst week,
we set a precedent by organizing early under a very capable group of officers.
Charles Kuggles won the presidency and Betty Sherman the vice-presidency.
Thomas McCarthy was chosen treasurerg Bertha VVeser, secretary and Miss
Haupt, Patron Saint. XVhen "Tom" resigned to become business manager
of the El-So-Hi Annual, Walter X-X-'atkins was named to succeed him.
During the last few days of our third year, a flag pole was ordered by
the class and placed during our senior year with fitting ceremonies. Mr.
Edson, in accepting the pole for the school, stated he hoped that each senior
would be like it, standing staunch and upright for things that are Wholesome
and true in the years to come.
On October 31 we had our First social activity in the forni of a
Halloween Dance. Not only was it unique in that it was the first dance ever
held in Southside, but also because of the fine conduct. The class put on a
profitable minstrel show in November with the aid of the faculty and the
student body, Many outsiders thought that this would be just another
school affair, but nearly everyone remarked that it was actually a finished
But February 23 was the great dancing affair-our first annual Senior
"Prom l" It was a real success in all respects, socially and financially.
