Today, as we review the four swift years of our high school life, we say truthfully that "Parting is such sweet sorrow." We have had many happy times and we hesitate to leave them. Now, the whole world lies before us. Off we go to take up our tasks in military service, in industry in college, in the greatest adventure of all time ...... life. Our obstacles will be numerous and, perhaps, unyielding. Nevertheless, we shall face them and overcome them, for so we have been taught. Off we go with a farewell to our fellow-students, with the steadfast assurance with which us, with a deep sense of gratitude for our tude of pleasant memories. As a parting Troy High School has furnished faculty friends, and with a multi word to our Alma Mater, we say respectfully, "May your glorious colors be ever held high, And your honors increase many fold."

Carolyn 3 6 E ycleshimer Qlass Cyfistor Ccfirst and ,Second years CX T'S hard for us, the class of '45, to look back upon that day, many, many exams ago - almost four years to be exact, but who wants to be exact about such an embarrassing thing as being a "freshie" - and remember our first terrifying day or two in our Alma Mater. On that memorable day, when Mr. Doyle stood before us as foreboding as the Rock of Gibralter giving us rules and regulations, we were a very much bewildered and be- fuddled group. CConfess now, were you one of those frosh who forgot that to fill in papers, cards, etc., you need a pencil? Tisk! Tisklj. After the first lecture, however, we settled down to await our fate. Were we to go to the Annex or fall into the hands of upperclassmen in what was affec- tionately called "The Big Building?" Most of us were sent to the Annex, but there were a few bewildered unfortunates who were thrown into the playful hands of the other classes. Naturally, I use the word "playful" in a general sense. It's odd, but Sophomores never seem to remember that they, too, were freshmen. Did you buy an air conditioned seat in the auditorium or one of those free passes from the horrible lions den -1 deten- tion? "Magnum Opus": great work, for them, yes - believe me, I was a freshman! We who went to the Annex were a little better off as compared with our other classmates. At least we weren't tormented by upperclassmen - in fact, we had a chance to show our high school superiority. Those kids in "School 5" believe anything. We learned the correct stairs to use and the importance of getting to classes on time. Did you have to write fifty or one hundred sentences on the subject of "Punctuality"? Fellows, was it worth while to shoot paper planes and "spit bal1s"? After school how long did it take you to sweep the floor? Ah, dear memories! What feminine heart did not go pitter patter when Mr. Donner appeared? "Oh, 'J', isn't he, a darling! Why he is a combination of Boyer and Bogart rolled into one." That bubble you were floating on soon burst when he told you in frigid tones that it was not lady like to powder one's nose in public. Whether or not it was our class which deter- mined the fate of other feminine hearts we are not sure, but at the end of our term Mr. Donner left this institution of higher learning. Girls, we weren't that bad - or were we? Who dares to state that freshmen don't know the tricks of the trade? The class of '45 did. Do you remember Miss Wood's bird house contest? How many of us slaved to make the best bird house for some unsuspecting Wren? Was it love for our feathered friends or the extra credit at the end of the marking period? My guess it that the latter had a lot to do with it: but then most of us were proud members of the Audubon Society. Miss Wood's room held a great deal of interest for many of us. That corner near the aquarium was extremely popular at noon hour. Weren't the fish interesting - or weren't you interested in the Phoxinus phoxinus Cmin- now to usj ? 37 Glass Wfistory Ccontinuedl The class of '45 was off to a flying start even in these days. We will never forget Miss Foxell's assistance in our Penny-a-week-drive. My! what a proud moment it was when Jack Driscoll handed Mr. Doyle our first War Bond! We, freshmen, had started a precedent and actually were recognized by the upper classmen as a "fair" class. We showed them! ! Well we did! Penny-a-week: Miss Foxell: Marines. Cln those days at the tender age of fourteen little did we appreciate Marineslj Of course, we thought that our first year wouldn't be complete with- out our Annex celebrity contest. With much ado we cast our votes and breathlessly awaited the outcome. James Perry, the science whiz was voted the most likely to succeed - but he took his success to Vermont: Elsie Landau, the most popular girl, and Dick Selzer the most popular boy. Perry "Red" Massey was our class wit CNOW at the close of our fourth year he is still holding that title much to our benefit - or was it to our benefit? - oh those oral topics second yearlj 3 Ned Krug was our class baby and Richard Best our most bashful males fBashful - a fresh- man term meaning the opposite sex has no appeal to me: or please, girls, stay away from melj These along with many others gave us a start toward choosing our future class oflicers. . In May we were confronted by one of our most ballling problems - excluding exams of course - that of helping to choose a Student Council President. What seemed to us far too many upperclassmen came over to our humble domain, and, in very bravado tones, delivered what sounded to us very eloquent speeches. CLittle did we dream that some day we too would be Writing such for a homework assignment or our dreaded senior thesisj . It was all strange to us, one speaker being as good as another, so we voted as best as we knew how. CEnie Miene Miney Mol Stephen Gillespie was elected and proved to be an excellent president. We had done our part in helping Student Council! Even then we were wise voters! Then came that dreaded week in June - exams were upon us. The sun was shining brightly outside but inside the clock ticked away precious minutes while we slaved away over a maze of questions. We knew we had to pass in order to be Sophomores in the "Big Building", that "big building" which held so much in store for us. At last, the week was over and we, with the exception of a few who had dropped along the way, were sophomores-to-be. Good bye, Annex. The summer passed and once more we were entering the portals of Troy High but not as the year before. We were a real class which had had experience. CSO we thought!J During the first week, the other classes and even some of our own classmates from the main building, jeered at us for not going up and down the right stairs. Our fellow classmen had learned this in their first year and were taking it out on us formerly of the Annex. Notice I say "formerly." - CWith the shout "Annexers" the red of embarressment mixed with a little frosh green would give us that rugged outdoor look. Remember?J As the year progressed, we attended the upperclass dances, and of course, the football and basketball games. We sophomores knew the 38 u Glass 'Ufistory lcontinuedl cheers and consequently really yelled. Even in classes the following Mon- day morn, evidences of our lusty shouting could be very easily detected. Yea, Troy High! The event of the year for the class was our dance, the "Sophomore Soiree". This was a dance at which the underclassmen felt they could be at ease. They were! The auditorium was crowded and we had made a success of our first real class project. This was a beginning of a success- ful career. - Successful is putting it mildly, for the dance committee, headed by Naz Chaderjian, collected 858. This beat the Seniors by about S40. and was cause for a great jubilation. We did it again! Exams came: exams went. Our furious studying just before exams "paid off" - not to mention the studying we did during the year. Well, we did do some - and we were full fledged upperclassmen. Now we could proudly say to the new frosh, that someday they, too, might become dignified upperclassmen. ' A CC'5hi'rd and Qourth :Years ST of us returned to school reluctantly in September, 1943, but as soon as we had seen all our old buddies again, we did not regret that another school year had begun. Indeed we were upperclassmen, and we wanted everyone to know it. How we looked forward to attending our first upperclass assembly! We did realize, however, that We were fewer in number than the scared kids who had entered in 1941. We had weathered the storms of underclass days, and now we were veterans. As Juniors, it was our task to organize our class. We held elections, and John Snyder was chosen as our President, John Driscoll was elected Vice-President, Elsie Landau was named Secretary, and Richard Selzer became Treasurer. With Mr. Wm. Farrell, our Advisor, the class officers selected a Junior Executive Board. Then we started on our first enterprise of an eventful year, the "Junior Mixer." Here was something really big. Nazaret Chaderjian was named General Chairman. Soon everyone was talking about our great "mystery" advertising campaign. Remember "Only 125"? And few will foret the wonders that the decoration crew worked on the school auditorium. Few school dances saw a larger, hap- pier crowd. After talk about the "Mixer" had subsided, we found that Christmas vacation was at hand, and soon we would be taking our mid-year exams. During the first half year, we had discovered upperclass work to be much harder than studies had been in our first two years. The number of our classmates on the honor roll was proportionately smaller. Nevertheless, we survived our exams, and resignedly settled down to a long stretch of hard work. At least, that sounds good now. At the approach of Spring, however, things started jumping. The call went out for all would-be actors to report to Mr. Farrell and Miss Fitzpatrick. The Junior Class was going to stage a play. Clifford Gold- - 39 Qlass Cgfistory Ccontinuedl H smith's "What a Life" had been chosen, and Perry Massey became a Henry Aldrich pursued with troubles. Your historian can't say how it appeared to the audience, but the ample laughter made the play great fun for those on the stage as well as in front of it. Do you remember the Italian behind the big mustache? Name was Driscoll, I think. Dawn Hall, Dick Selzer. Nazaret Chaderjian, Ed Dinowitz, and many others contributed to an evening of merriment. On the night of the play, the Class of '45 was indeed proud of itself, for at that time so many of us had just purchased our class rings. Every- where you turned your chums were flashing their rings at you. Our rings served to give us additional fervor as we turned our eyes toward the cul- mination of our year, the Junior Prom. Wendell Bryce was named Chair- man. and the date was set at June 9. It was the center of all conversation. the thrill of thrills. Everyone asked "Are you going?" "Have you got a car?" Etc. However, bigger events in the world coincided with our Prom. On June 6, 1944, Allied troops invaded Normandy. The thought of dancing to such music was difficult, but our cares melted in the atmosphere of the Hendrick Hudson Crystal Ballroom. With the Prom as a fitting climax, we brought to a close our year as Juniors. So, after we had passed our final exams we left school for a well deserved vacation. For most of us, working in many various jobs, the summer of 1944 was a small vacation. Maybe we took up our school work a little more willingly. Besides, we would be Seniors. After we had become accustom- ed to the routine once again, we proceeded to get our affairs under Way by re-electing John Snyder president of the class, Helen Califano became Vice-President, and John Driscoll and Hugh Brown filled the positions of Secretary and Treasurer. Mr. Dudley Van Arnum and Miss Isabel Mann were faculty advisors. The President appointed Elsie Landau, Alberta Braveman, Rosemarie Fletcher, Arnold Willi and Nazaret Chaderjian to the Senior Executive Board. Bernard Clancy was added later. The first week in May, when Hugh Brown entered the Navy, Donald Dickinson was elected Treasurer to fill Hugh's place. ,- Immediately we decided that we should hold our Senior Ball in the first semester, for the benefit of our classmates who might not be with us after January. We decided that the school auditorium wasn't large enough to accomodate the crowds we had come to expect from our past successes: so We moved to the Hendrick Hudson Crystal Ballroom. Marion Wanso- vitch was named Chairman, and a large committee was appointed to insure that this would be the finest event of our career as a class. On the night of November 18, 1944, the more than 220 young people who danced to the music of Paul Perker's orchestra, will assure you that this was a real success. With our eyes financing our yearbook as well as spreading holiday cheer, we undertook the sale of Christmas cards in December. After our Christmas recess, we set to work in earnest to publish the "Dardanian". Helen Califano was selected as Editor-in-Chief, with Henry Tutunjian as Assistant Editor. 40 Glass 'Ufistory Ccontinuedl But it was by no means all work. On St. Patrick's night, we put on our "County Fair and Fun Night", an event the likeness of which had never been seen in old Troy High. You will long recall the "Spook House" including the "Spook" who fainted, "Madame Janey", the palm- ist, and Ed Ciillie ducking tennis balls. Betty Hintz deserved a lot of credit for putting it over. ' Then, a cluster of activities heralded the end of our fourth year. Many a student doubted the sanity of the Seniors on Loud Tie and Hair Ribbon Day. On Senior Day, we handed over the title of Seniors to the Class of 1946, and scrambled off to the Senior Picnic. After the mer- riment of Class Day, we were all but oflicially graduates of Troy High. We left with a record of successes behind us, unparalleled from Freshman to Senior. Time will dim all these, of course, but it will never dim our memories of school days. 41 Glass Celebrities g Done most for Troy High School is ..., s Class Wit ........,........,......,...... c .....

Our niche, Rooms 306, 7, 8, 9, and 10 we cheerfully leave you. Yours is the privilege of not sitting on the desks in Mr. Fancher's room, yours that of attempting to slip unnoticed into Mrs. Jacob's line while going to assemblies.

To those of the Annex we do give, devise, and bequeath the supreme honor of being trampled on the stairs. To you we give the gentle reminder, by the mangled condition of your body, that you are on the wrong staircase. Part IV. To the legions of those who are to enter our halls in the future, we do give the responsibility of keeping our corridors, cafeteria, and stairs full to the utmost and earsplitting forever. Look not weakly to these things: they carry to you a full measure of deep portent. SECTION II SPECIAL ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Part I.

SECTION IV , E Part I. In view of all these facts and fancies and hoping to remain indelibly stamped in the memories of all within the portals of Troy High School, we do aflix and assign our seal to this, our last will and testament, on this 25th day of June in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and forty-live.

The Senior Ball was held on November 18, 1944, and the A'Dardanian" Board was appointed in December. Christmas cards were sold to raise money for the yearbook. On March 17, 1945, "County Fair and Fun Night" drew a crowd to T. H. S. On June 8, 1945, was "Loud Bow and Tie Day" and on June 15, was Senior Day. Our class colors were chosen as cherry and white.

Troy Hih's team was named City Champions by virtue of their victories over the other teams of the city. 66 TROY 0 -- MECHANICVILLE 0 For our first game we traveled to Mechanicville where a seesaw battle on a muddy Held ended in a scoreless tie.

At the outset of the season, Coach Picken was blessed with seven returning veterans of last year's varsity, four JayVees, and two newcom- ers. Une was "Cookie" Sherwin and the other Jim Ford. With this material, Coach Picken did rather well, Although Troy High did not conquer "fame and fortune", they did establish themselves as one of the 60 fastest teams of this section. This reputation was attained by the defeat of Nott Terrace Ctwicej, LaSalle, Lansingburg, Hudson, and Watervliet. We were beaten by Cohoes and Catholic High twice and split two games with Albany High during regular season plays. At the end of the regular season, Albany High was tied with us for first place in the Public School League, but in the playoff to determine who would play in the finals, we won 49-40. Therefore, we won also the right to go to Saratoga to play Nott Terrace for the Eastern New York State, Section 2 Finals. The team traveled to Spa only to go down, fighting gallantly, with the final score 36-35 for Nott Terrace. Billy Harrell, star forward, was honored and did well in represent- ing T.H.S., for he was chosen for the All-City team, a very much deserved honor. All in all, the season was a great success from the standpoint of the team, the coach, and the spectators. C. C. H. S.

The tracksmen opened the season against Watervliet High and came out victorious on all counts.
