These have been full years--full of varied activities, joys and disappointments, excitement and discouragement. Through all, however, has run a continuous strain of happiness that has made a rich and lasting imprint upon our lives. We have earnestly endeavored to present a pic- torial history of the highlights of the year's activities in the pages of the 1955 ANCHOR. As you turn through these pages in the future, we hope that itwill enable you to recall many pleas- ant memories of the years spent as students at Anson Academy.

CONNON, in appreciation of his tireless efforts and friendly guidance during our four years as students at Anson Academy. In all of our associations with him--as principal, teacher, coach, and friend--we have found that his helpfulness and interest have been exceeded only by a full measure of devotion on our behalf.

During that year one of our classmates, Lorraine Mayo, dropped out. Her loss was balanced, however, by the addition of Lois Blagden. Our initiation by the members of the Student Council early in the year was most "enjoyable. " Our cardboard box costumes were outlandish but what fun we had with those cowbells! Our number was increased by one in the fall of 1952 when George Grant joined us. During the year, Joyce Miller left, giving us a total membership of twenty-three at the end of the year. 7731: 1 J N 5 At the beginning of our Junior year we were pleased to welcome a new member, Nancy Wells, into our class. During that year twelve of our class- mates participated in the annual Junior Prize Speaking Contest, the prize winners being Darrell Moody, Joyce Fletcher and Lois Blagden. When we entered school as Seniors in the fall of 1954, Gene Dickey's name was missing from the class roll. Our number has been further reduced since that time by the loss of Katherine Jacques and Walter Parlin. As we approach the June 9th graduation date, we have twenty-one members. eigh- If QQ' teen of whom were among the twenty-three Freshmen who entered Anson ...-f Academy away back in September of 1951. A glance at our activities and accomplishments during our four years at Anson Academy indicates why the Class of 1955 has earned a reputation as a very energetic and well-rounded group. Without exception all members of the class have been very active participants in one or more of the various school activities. That our class has excelled in scholastic achievement as well as in other fields is shown by the fact that the names of many of our members have appeared consistently on the honor roll. In the spring we plan to take a nip to an as yet undetermined destination. The many varied activities undertaken to raise money to finance this venture include washing cars, raffles, dances, food sales, and the collection of dues from the members of the class. This trip will serve as a fitting climax to our Q9 it 7 'a i - ,f four enjoyable years as students at Anson Academy. classes 4 at Hmm 746 7954-7955 FRESHMAN CLASS Lawrence Atwood June E.

Since the beginning of the school year two more of 1 our members, James Lightbody and Shirley Gordon, have left us, giving us an enrollment of twenty-three at the present time. Up to the present we have lost none of the pep and enthusiasm for which we gained great fame during our first year. The bulk of the membership in the still very popular "3:l5 Club" continues to be made up of members of the class of '57. Some of our classmates have been very active as members of the various athletic teams. Particularly outstanding have been Gary Moody in basketball and baseballg Grace Matthews and Sandra Cushing in basketballg Dianne Piper as a member of the cheerlead- ing squad: and Ann Bessey as the manager of girls' basketball.

Under the capable leadership of the editor-in-chief Judith Rogers, and the guidance of our faculty advisor, Mr. Connon, the work of col- lecting and preparing the material has progressed very rapidly. Early in the fall the members of the Senior Class cooperated to make the sale of advertising for the yearbook a great success. Sufficient funds were T ' raised in this manner to pay most of the cost of publication. 1 L The members of the staff wish to take this opportunity to express ,, . . . . . their gratitude to all of the many individuals and groups who have aided in making the publication of the 1955 Anchor possible.

However, early in the season these hopes were considerably dampened when the star pivot man, Darrell Moody, suffered a broken leg while playing against Harmony. Despite this great loss, the team compiled an enviable record, winning ten of the fourteen league games, which placed it in a tie for thi.rd place with Bingham in the league standing. The only other game on the schedule resulted in a one point loss to the strong Kingfield team, making the season's record ten victories against only five defeats. In tournament play at the end of the season our team was victorious over Clinton in the preliminary round, but was defeated by the league champions, Monson Academy, in the finals. Dale Bessey won the foul shooting championship of the squad and took part in the shoot-off for the state title at Farmington. He and Howard Hartwell represented Anson Academy on the league all-star team. Although six members of the squad are Seniors, future prospects do not look too dim. The remaining squad members, plus some help from members year. X151 of the strong I. V. squad, form a good nucleus around which to build for next Seated: G. Matthews, E. Abbott, B.

The 1954-55 Anson Academy girls' team compiled an excellent record. There were only two losses, both by two points and one of those in a double overtime game, to mar an otherwise perfect record. The season's record was thirteen wins and two defeats. The league record of twelve wins and two defeats put the team in a triple tie for first place with Central High School and Harmony High School. Nearly a month after the end of our regular season the team had to play off for the championship. In a game played at Bingham, Central High was victorious over us by a score of 52 to 46. Betsy Wyman and Nancy Wells were selected to represent our school ln the annual league all-star game. Four members of the squad are members of the Senior Class. Al- though all of them were members of the starting six, prospects for con- tinued success in the future are not too dim. The valuable experience f. J 1, gained by other squad members plus some very good material coming . I up from the Junior High School team promise to Keep Anson Academy at or near the top in girls' athletics ln the years to come. .W. fs, Kneeling: D. Gilbert, C. l-lunnewell, W. Lehay. Standing: L.

Because of the large number of boys who desired to participate in basketball this season, the group was divided into varsity and junior varsity squads. The eight member J. V. squad was coached by Neil Witham, who very generously donated his time and knowledge in teaching the boys the fundamentals of the game. Although the schedule of games played with teams of other schools was limited to five, the boys received valuable experience. There was only one loss to mar an other- wise perfect season, that being a two-point defeat by the Bingham J. V. 's when our team was weakened by the absence of one of its better players. Later in the season that defeat was avenged by a 49 to 29 victory. The highlight of the season was an easy '77 to 12 victory over a supposedly strong I. V. team from Monson. Us Some of the members of the I. V. squad have developed to KX!!! 5 5, the point where next year they are expected to capably fill the X 'sr . i shoes of the members of the varsity squad who will be lost by X graduation. Since all the members of the squad have at least two more years of eligibility, they are certain to play a prom- inent role in furthering the winning ways of Anson Academy's K Y athletic teams. fy .1 4: 1 is I I ar Huddle Coach Girls game R 1.

The reason for this optimism is that, with the exception of one player, the very strong team of last year will once again take the field. The fact that there are twenty-five boys on the squad, all of whom are very eager to play, means that the more experienced players will have to hustle at all times in order to hold their positions The pitching staff is once again headed by Winfield Davis who did not walk a single batter in the forty-three innings he pitched last season. Leading candidates for the vacant catching position are Darrell Moody and Lewis Holbrook. The infield posi- tions are capably filled by Buddy Nelson, Gary Moody, Dale Bessey and Norman Greene while the leading outfield candidates are Clyde Browne, Howard Hartwell and George Grant. F, - E K ? If the team can overcome its inability to hit Q b ff f j in clutch situations, it will be a strong contender ' 6 X to take the top league honors for the first time in 53 many years.

The group rehearsed regularly during the Wednesday morning music period. In addition, the younger mem- bers of the band have received special instrumental instruction from the director, Miss Ela, throughout the year as part of the music program. The band has made a number of public appearances this year. It played several numbers at the fall concert of the pupils of the Mark Emery School and also at the spring concerts held in the various towns of the school union. Some members of the band have been outfitted with new maroon and white uni- forms. It is hoped that in the near future sufficient money will be obtained to buy uniforms for the remainder of the band members. Vincent and Winfield Davis, William Goodwin and Betsy Wyman were v. I selected to participate as members of the Kennebec Valley Band. The first Fl three also represented our school as members of the All-State Band which 5' - f Of I 'Y 4 WQ 6 presented a concert at South Portland during the month of April. gl X Q2 sq .

Under the direction of the music supervisor, Miss Ela, the group met regularly throughout the year during the Wednesday morning music period. The Academy chorus participated in the annual Christmas program held in the gymnasium. It also presented many fine numbers at the annual spring concert series. Highlight of the year's activities was the trip to Belfast, where, in the spring, the entire group auditioned at the Central Maine Music Festival. Some of the members of the chorus were selected by the director to represent our school in outside choral activities. Lois Blagden, Marion Piper, Marie Adams, Everett Dunlap, Charles l-lunnewell, Dale Bessey and Roger Gilman were members of the Kennebec Valley Chorus which presented a series of concerts in many cities in central Maine during the winter. In addition, Lois Blagden was selected to attend the New I ,asf-1 .W M' 'v England Music Festival which met at Rutland, Vermont, in the spring. si t? ,v N ,J I. Dunlap, C. Piper, D. Piper, B.

For the first time in many years at this school, a boy, Jackie Fencik, was a member of the cheerleading squad. He, together with Christine Piper and Ioan Dunlap were new mem- bers of the squad. Much hard work and constant practice under the direction of their advisor, Mrs. Dolan, and the head cheerleader, Marion Piper, enabled the group to develop and present many tricky routines. The pleasing exhibitions were well received at all games, both at home and away, especially the routine which ended up with all members lying flat on the floor. During the basketball season rallies were held to acquaint the student body with new cheers and to arouse enthusiasm for crucial games. - - The group was attractively outfitted in uniforms of the school colors, maroon and white, and was equipped with new megaphones purchased by 35 the Student Council. Although two of this years cheerleaders, Betsy Wyman and Marion ,-Q Piper, will graduate in June, there remains an experienced nucleus around which to build for next year. Let's hope that they have as much to cheer about as we had this year! 1 Q7 'I 91' 1 I Y' 1 4. -9 I- , 1 XX Candy Machrnc ' Y R' S Q' 3 X Gul Crawlmg 3us A DH Ver Glrls wrth Arms Around Each 0tl1r,r Santa Claus Guls Wlth Ball ef Nancy Gul With Coat Betsy Mrs. Given 3 Boys Kg- I 7 Y, x i 1 S New Class' oem QI' ' M" .. -.

The addition, the construction of which was made possible bv funds raised by the Town of Anson, contains two large classrooms. These rooms are very modern, with excellent flourescent lighting, green chalkboards, asphalt tile flooring, built-in coat closets, ample window space, and all new school furniture. The new room on the second floor is occupied by the 'Ith grade of the Junior High School, while the room on the ground floor is used as the homeroom of the Senior Class. The room in the basement of the new addition is used as a projection room for showing movies. The work of landscaping the grounds around the Academy building was started last fall and will be continued this spring. Improvements in the Industrial Arts Department continue to be made. A large doorway has been constructed on the south side of Academy Hall. This doorway pro- vides access into the rear of the basement of the building, making lt possible to bring automobiles and other vehicles into the newly equipped transportation area of the department, thus affording the students an opportunity to learn about automotive repairs and maintenance. A new stainless steel sink has been installed in the foods section of the Home Econ- omics laboratory to provide much needed sink space. This piece of equipment, in addi- tion to being very usetul, adds much to the appearance of the laboratory. Another improvement at the Academy has been the construction of a wide asphalt walk which extends from the front entrance of the Academy building to the steps lead- ing into the Academy Hall. This walk aids greatly in reducing the amount of dirt and mud carried into the building. A new electric range has been added to the refreshment area of the gymnasium. Money for this much needed piece of equipment was raised by the F. H. A. Club through the sale of refreshments at all of the many basketball games held in the gym- nasium. This year the policy of using the large area to the rear of the Academy building as a parking area was started. This relieves the congestion due to parked cars on the narrow driveway between the Academy building and Academy Hall, especially during the winter season when the problem of snow removal is so great. These improvements serve as a good indication that Anson Academy is a progressive institution. They also make it possible for all connected with the school to continue to boast that their school is one of the best, if not the best, of its size in this area. 'Me "Zu" BOY GIRL . .
