We all felf exfremely proud of passing our firsf Regenfs examin- afions fhe June before, and we displayed fhis affifude as we enfered our new insfifufion on Sevenfh Avenue. This building was, fherefore, immedi- afely subiecf fo our severe crificismg and whaf a beafing if look! Were we superior beings going fo be forced fo spend fhe nexf four years of our life in fhis place? Indeed, mosf of us were nof! lf was on fhe second day of our glorious high school career fhaf we were 'ro learn of fhe exisfence of anofher building, which we came fo know as fhe "Annex". This building, we were fold, was made especially for fhe comforf of Freshmen ll sfill wanf fo know who fold me fhaf onelg and mosf of us were overioyed fo learn fhaf a large percenfage of fhe Freshman Class would be fransferred fo fhis "ulfra-mod- ern" garden-spof. As in any new building, fhings weren'f foo easy fo gef used fo in our "modern and up-fo- dafe" Annex. Affer fhe firsf few monfhs, how- ever, we began fo ignore fhe falling plasfer and leaky roof lfhaf large pail on fhe window sill of fhe audiforium was exfremely efficienfl, and fhe Annex became our beloved second home. Our Freshman year af fhe Annex was cram- med fighf wifh acfivifies and schoolwork. Movies magazines, bird feeders lfor five exfra credifs, of coursel, and play rehearsals were all a parf of our busy day. We especially enioyed giving oral fopics, and Nick was our favorife scienfific speaker. He proved fo be an orafor of perfecfion when he falked on fhe "sfrucfure and nefwork of fhe fibro-vascular bundle" lbofh in class and ouf.l "Tomb-gin", anofher scienfisf of nofe, was ever inferviewing R. P. I. professors lupon advice from fhe faculfyl fo learn more abouf fhe life cycle of fhe nasfurfium. Yes, we experienced many enioyable days af fhe Annex, days which l am sure we shall never forgef. In fhe meanfime, fhe small percenfage of fhe Class of l953 fhaf re- mained in fhe Main Building were experiencing a wonderful buf somefimes hecfic year. Why was everyone always going in fhe wrong direcfion on fhe sfairs? Whaf is fhis fhing called fhe "Supper Club"? ls fhis "A" 11' i 1 week or "B" week? ls fhe gym on fhe second floor or fhe fhird? Oh well, we'II learn someday! ln due fime, fhe Freshmen in fhe Main Building did learn, and were soon fo become experienced Sophomores, while fhe Annex Freshmen were desfined fo fasfe fhe biffer medicine of being "green" Sophomores! THE ERA OF ECONOMIC PROSPERITY A new school year was nof fhe only fhing fhaf confronfed us in Sepfember, I950. On our firsf day of Sopho-moredom, a new and smil- ing face appeared before fhe fhrong of fwelve hundred in fhe Troy High audiforium. His name was Arfhur J. Norfh: his fifle - Principal of Troy High School. Mr. Norfh, we learned, was fo fake former principal W. Kennefh DoyIe's posifion, and Mr. Doyle was fo be fhe new Assisfanf Superinfendenf of Schools. Mr. Norfh immediafely emphasized fhe im- porfance of serious sfudy and, in facf, - -The firsf half of our Sophomore year was devofed primarily fo sfudy, alfhough lunch period inafurallyi proved fo be our favorife. While mosf of us were dreaming fhe period before of fhe delicious ham sand- wich in our lunch, a selecf group of biology sfudenfs were busy dissecfing a frog or sfudying fhe sfrucfure of a grasshop- E per's leg. These unforfunafe individuals had a lab period iusf before lunch! Neverfheless, fhey managed fo sfruggle fhrough lunch period, and, indeed, were subiecf fo a wonderful "liff" via fhe Fresh-Air Room, 205. Somefimes, however, fhis very same air made if exfremely difficulf fo knof sfring - an essenfial piece of geomefric equipmenf in relafion fo fhe compass! Affer fhe mid-ferm examinafions, fhe mem- bers of fhe Sophomore Class began fhinking seri- Pmennng fha omcial Tm . h y Hgh S h ol g ously abouf fhe annual Sophomore Dance. This new being worn by eh. mambo S of iii, ci... fhinking was spurred info acfion wifh fhe appoinf- of ma' menf of our faculfy advisors. They were, and forfunafely sfill are, Miss Anfoineffe Lewis and Mr. Benjamin James. This dance was fo be our firsf social evenf, and we simply had fo make if successful. Under fhe capable chairmenship of Mary Barsamian and Dick Rose, fhe Sophomores began making decorafions and posfers in accordance wifh fhe "Shamrock Serenade" fheme: and fwo weeks before fhe memorable evenf, one of fhe mosf specfacular and energefic fickef-selling campaigns was launched. As a resulf of painsfaking perseverance and fhe complefe co-operafion of every classmafe, fhe nighf of March I7, l95I, saw fhe Troy High School audiforium filled fo capacify - a record crowd of 40I danced fo fhe sweef music of Paul Parker and his orchesfra. "Oh, fhe days dwindled down fo a precious few", and before we knew if, "June was busfin' ouf all over!" We fhen wifnessed a grand baffle befween Spring fever and "examinafionifis", fwo of fhe mosf deadly diseases known! The laffer proved fo be fhe worse, fhe only cure being sfudy, sfudy, and more sfudy. The examinafions were finally con- quered, and we could donaughf buf look fo fhe fufure wifh dreams of being upperclassmen. lf had been a very successful year! - THE ERA OF GOOD FEELING The lyou'll pardon fhe expressionl "wheels" of fime had quickly rolled us righf info our Junior year. Affer comparing nofes, fhe general con- census was fhe same . . . and we relucfanfly admiffed fhaf being upper- classmen didn'f ruffle us one bi+. Affer all, didn'f we already know all fhere was fo know? We were now, of course, enfifled fo cerfain privileges . . . sfanding af fhe end of fhe IO4 line all morning, insfead of af fhe beginning for only fen minufes. Classes began in full swing, and we once again found ourselves in fhe midsf of work. Hisfory presenfed quife a challenge, buf we learned a greaf deal, and became parficularily well-versed on fhe democrafic principles of vofing. A vofe was faken on everyfhing . . . including whefher or nof fo vofe. ln 2 I 0 fhe class diligenfly underfook fhe sfudy of persecufion . . . fhe per- secufion of fhe Cafholics, fhe Profesfanfs, and - of Howard. We found fhaf science and hisfory could be inferchanged, and wifh scienfific prow- ess our geniuses sef ouf fo use fheir hisfory-mak- ing incense bomb. The evenf lafer became known as fhe "lf wasn'f a broken radiafor" incidenf. Mosf of us were earnesfly frying fo conquer fhe English language, and if nof, fhen af leasf fhe English feachers. ln 309 fhe class eagerly a- lnformal momenf af a formal dance: fhe Junior waifecl fhe finale fo l'lUf1llS l'l.OUiSl6l'1d Pfom- Swamp Girl," and in 307 fhe masferminds waifed for fhe opporfune momenf fo hear fhe --- "BELL" --! Many an un- forfunafe subsfifufe found herself wifhouf a class before fhe period was over, and never did know why. Up in physics lab, fhe scienfisfs were doing infense experimenfafion. Unforfunafely, fhey were using poor Josh as a guinea pig. The girl's gym classes were The scene of brighTly colored gym suiTs. ATTer all, didn'T we wash, iron and sTarch Them every week? We were also The maThemaTician's dismay. When counTing over The leTT shoulder, I, noT 8, Tollowed 7. We never did Tigure ThaT one ouT. DespiTe Their iokes, The class members did serious Thinking in regard To leadership, and wisely eIecTed Harold Danzis, Class PresidenT: RoberT SToker, Vice PresidenT: Jean DuCuennois, SecreTary: and Carol McGin- nis, Treasurer. To assisT Them, and aid The class, an excellenT selecTion oT ExecuTive Board members was made. WiTh Their help, and The guiding hand of our advisors, preparaTions were made Tor The Junior Mixer.

WhaT Time did Those picnics geT over? ln a shorT Time, poliTics invaded Troy High School. IT was "Time Tor a change," and aTTer much vigorous cam- paigning, The very capable and popular Jerry Wilkes was swepT inTo The STudenT Council presi- dency. AT The same Time The key To The Chal- lenger Office was handed To Adrienne Tuffy and Carol WaTerTield, our new girl ediTors. The year was almosT over, and exams befell us. Somehow, we all managed. As we walked ouT The door Tor a Two-monThs resT, we realized we would never roam The old corridors again. We said our fond Tarewells wiTh mingled feelings of regreT and anTicipaTion . . . anTicipaTion oT The yugo Harney Couples bid adie T d f I enlof Q Q day when we would begin a new year in a new building.
