8 THE 1940 ALBANIAN SENIORS ARTHUR DEIKEK REID SCHOENFELD, Prcsizfmf ELLSWORTH CHAPMAN ALXVOIKIJ, JR., T1'f'zlx111'r1' in-... CONGENIAL, almost optimisrically light-hearted, but close-knit, homo- geneous-that's the Class of 1940. Thirteen of its twenty-one members are products of the Lower School, three more have completed the four- year Upper School course, and the five who have entered since Form HI have joined so into the general friendship of the Class that they are in- distinguishable from their fellows. From its first days in the Lower School, the Class has had a good time. All this fun started back in Form B, eight years ago, when Ellsworth Alvord, Van Ness Philip, Burr Piggott, and Alex Walker, listened en- thralled for a year to Mr. Al Wagner,s readings of "The Cremation of Dan McGee" and "The Highwaymanf' This little charter group became divided when Piggott and Walker left to pick up Jack Hare and be coached by Mr. Middleton in Choir-Form A. Unfortunately, the "regu- lars" were not privileged to live again with these three Choir boys until Upper School days. The fall of 1934 saw the greatest number of new faces enter the class, faces that were destined to change little through the years up to the Sixth Form. To Form I at this time came Dick Alexander, Custis Hall, Jack Myers, Derek Schoenfeld, and George Trible, joining Alvord and Philip in the last class to be taught by a mustache-less Mr. Barlow. After a year under a violent, head-thumping Mr. McGehee in Form II, and after collecting John McClure into our fold, the group took the straight andnarrow path to the Upper School. Here they encountered Mr. Phillips, the new Third Form English teacher, who tried his best to

ST. ALBANS SCHOOL 9 supply newcomers Niel Platter, Bill Manger, and Forrest Holmes with the notebooks-full of English grammar notes which they had missed under Mr. McGehee. In 1938, in sharp contrast to Peoria's own Scott Morrill, who the year before had tried to master every grade of English given at the School, Carl Luebben and Courtney Sunday decided to spend just one more year under Mr. Ruge in the Fifth Form. Luebben, who had entered Form I in 1933, and Sunday, who had joined him in Form II the next year, had somehow given Mr. Ruge reason to concoct the well known story that he had taught the pair in every grade from the Sixth Form down and that they were now only on their way to the top again. At this time also came one lone new-comer, Bill Hannon, but when three others-Bob LeFevre, Walt Swift, and John Winant-joined him last fall in the dormitory, they soon formed a group of four fellows that behave no differently, that is, no more strangely than all the others. In fact, all have contributed much to the enjoyment of our stay at Saint Albans. This year, although with a greatly improved athletic record over those of the last three years, the Class academically has become one of Dr. Lucas's proverbial headaches. But the utter ridiculousness of his statement that he is trying like anything to get us all out of the bottom fifth of our Class, only adds to our enjoyment. And there is much to be said for a Class of hard-driving Saint Albans that still manages to have a good time.
