Our eighfh summer vacafion was over wifh fhe coming of Sepfember
7, I949. 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-
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-

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

Dorpians, Amsferdam. The only loss was a hearfbreaker
fo Albany High.
