There it stands, upright and firm,
A challenge to every child,
A challenge to enter and graduate,
To face the world unbeguiled.
Here in our school, we learn about life,
About people, their ideas and ways,
And we build ourselves to compete with them
For the rest of our livelong days.
Our school's a stepping stone to success,
A foundation, firm and strong,
which will last forever and can't be destroyed
It's been part of our mould for so long.
There's a spirit within this school of ours,
That's American through and through,
And it makes us proud of our U. S. A.
That land of the Red, White and Blue!
Yes, 1t's a great place, this school of ours,
Our free flag floats above lt,
'tis many a year we've labored here,
But 1t's our school, and we love it.

Q an s us freedoms which so few countries are enjoying today. -
We must uphold the principles that our great leaders have set before us Therefore, as

nGee it seems good not to be Freshman anymoren said the Sophomores upon return-
ing to school in the fall. They really felt that they had grown up during summer
and they had.
On December 17, under the chairmanship of Imogene Burke they' proved they could con
duct a social function as well as anyone else. They entertained themselves at a
Christmas Party in the school. At this party besides fine food the Sophomores enjoyed
singing, dancing, and games in the gymnasium.
The Sophomores are looking forward to a class picnic in June. This will be their
way of saying nAd1osn, to their classmates until their Junior year.

The T.A.E. Football Team opened the 1941 season with a 22-6 victory over the Bath High School
It was a thrilling game from start to finish with the Heights eleven leading all the way. The
thrill of the gamewhenShannon, speedy end for the Bath team, took the opening kickoff of the second
half and ran 85 yards for a touchdown. This did not discourage the Heights and they came back to
The second game of the season was played against Watkins Glen which the Heights won 32-6. I
this game the Heights eleven showed they had great power by using throughout thewholegame straight
power plays. The Watkins eleven who were pass-happy, threw away good scoring chances by using
aerial tactics. This first game victory in league competition made Heights a challenger for the
The next contest for the Heights was the Horseheads game,wh1ch as you all know is always packed
with thrills and spills. Again for the tenth straight year Heights beat the Horseheads eleven but
not without a few scares. This year Horseheads had the highest rated team to yet play on the grid
iron but they were overcome by the power and trickery of the Heights eleven who finally won by 12 O
The next encounter between Heights and Waverly resulted in a l3-O victory for the T.A.E. War
riors. The game was played for three quarters without either teams scoring. As the third quarter
began it looked bad for the yet unbeaten Heights team, but on the first play in the third quarter
they took the ball from mid-field to Waverly's three year line, and on the next play they scored a
touchdown. They scored another quick touchdown and an extra point to put the game on ice. This
gave the Heights team a good chance for the championship laurels.
The Sayre-Heights game which was a non-league game ended in a 6-6 tie. On this day we cele-
brated Northrup Day, in honor of our coach who has served us all well for 10 years on and off the
playing field. Coach Northrup was presented a fishing outfit by the '41 football team and also re
celved from the alumni a moving picture camera and projector. In this game Heights came from be-

think it could be worthy to mention that our Captain

The l94l-42 basketball season looked pretty dark for the T.A.E. team because they lost
four varsity men and had only two men coming back that had had experience before. At the
first game in which this unexperienced team of T.A.E. took the floor they were beaten by
Corning Free Academy 34-26, but showed that they were not the Hunderdogn that they were
noted to be. This first game was non-league and the next week in another non-league game the
Heights beat Corning Northside, 27-22 which showed they were ready to begin their campaign
for the Championship.
The first league game was played against Montour Falls, in which the Heights won, 51-14
The Montour team was very weak on both defense and offense and the Heights had it going easy
all through the game.
Next came the Owego-Heights game which everyone knew was the most important game of the
year. Owego won, 44-24 but were greatly aided by Heights being unexperienced and having a
weak defense. This victory gave Owego undisputed possession of first place until they met
the Heights team in the second round.
The defeat by Owego seemed to open the eyes of the team because the following week they
beat Waverly 27-19 and showed remarkable improvement over the week before. The players seemed
to become veterans overnight and ready for any team.
The Horseheads-Heights game was next on the list. Here again, the Heights team was
noted as the HUnderdogn. But the fast rising Heights team showed their ability on defense
that allowed Horseheads Only six points in the first half, not any in the third quarter,
and only three in the last quarter. The game finally ended in a 24-9 victory for the T.A.E.
team. The following Thursday, the Heights played Corning Northside. The score, 47-56.
The Heights' next encounter was against Watkins Glen. Heights won, 42-ll and this was
the last game of the first round of the Southern Counties League. In this game the Heights
played another brilliant defensivegamelnfnotallowing The Watkins team to score a field goal
until the last quarter and then they only scored two. In this game the Heights proved that
they have ability to score as well as defend by' scoring 42 points. The following
Tuesday, the Heights' Five were beaten by' Corning Free Academy in a non-league game,
The Heights then started off the second round by beating Montour Falls, 44-23. The
game was played at Montour with the Heights' Five leading all the way.
The time soon came for Heights to play Owego again. Owego at this time was in
first place and well on the way to another Championship. The Heights team knew that
this was their last chance so they really went in to play ball. They came out with a
36-26 victory and a chance for Championship.
Now that the Heights' Five have tied for first place, they have to win all their
games to maintain this position. So they' went to Waverly the following week and came
home with'a 36-30 victory.
Then came time for the great rivals, Heights and Horseheads, to come together.
Horseheads was out to knock Heights out of their first place position with Owego. In
this game both teams were all out for victory and it wasn't until both teams showed
everything they had that Heights came out on top, 40-29.
The final game of the l94l-l942 season the Heights basketball team defeated Watkins
Glen by' the score of 52-lO. The Heights five led all of the way and the Watkins team
couldn't get enough power to overcome Heights who had an early lead. This victory
enabled Heights to end the season in a tie for first place with Owego. Because of
a state ruling the teams were unable to have a playoff.
