Superintendenfs Message I am happy to offer congratulations to the graduating class of 1961 and to express the hope that you will be able to achieve those goals which are still before you as you take your place in adult life. Regardless of what you do. now that you have completed the secondary school pro- gram, you cannot afford to stop studying and learning. No person today can af- ford to stop studying and understanding. Never before has it been more necessary for an individual to pursue a continuing program of education, either in the formal sense through more organized schooling or by the informal efforts to achieve per- sonal growth through individual studv and reading. The young citizen of today is called upon to express opinions through his vote on problems which were never even thought of when his parents were at a similar age. Although it took man the span of thousands of years of recorded history to learn how to get off the ground and fly. it has only been during the last fifty years that he has considered inter- planetary travel feasible. The contrast found in the time span of these two periods of the age of man is beyond human comprehension. Even so, we who live in these times cannot afford to be lax in our mental habits and admit we have finished our education. We have actually only begun. You. and the hundreds of thousands of young people like you in the schools of America, will have to find your place in an increasingly smaller world. We commend you for your effort to this point. We commit you to continued effort for the future. Superintendent 2 I PrincipaVs Message " The heights by great men reached and kept Were not attained by sudden flight. But they while their companions slept Were toiling upward in the night. " — Longfellow — Our thanks to you, the class of 1961, for the contributions you have made to the Apponequet School. Although your stay with us has been of short duration, your enthusiastic leadership has set a high standard for future classes to follow. Conversely, I would hope that Apponequet has made a contribution to each of you. Obviously, you have been exposed to certain knowledges and skills here, but these alone will not guarantee a useful, successful life. I hope that beyond these knowl- edges and skills you have been given a sense of your obligations and responsibilities as young citizens. For, if you are to realize the full extent of happiness through peace of mind, you must also realize the importance of individual resolution and determination. I urge that each of you be a leader, anxious to face difficult tasks; I implore each of you to be an individual, strong in your convictions and unafraid to defend them even when to do so means being unpopular for the moment. I earnestly wish for all of you the best of everything in the years to come, and, above all, it is my fervent hope that you will continue to demonstrate the competent leadership you have shown here . . . that you will come to know the satisfaction of " ... toiling upward in the night.

This spirit at Apponequet was only found in our Senior year and has made our last year here one always to be remembered and cherished. Throughout our yearbook he hunts and works and plays to his heart ' s content, just as we have here at Apponequet. He has been with us in all our activities and may have even encouraged us to do better in the things that we did. His name was derived from the last five letters of Apponequet, and we owe his present form to Dan Gibbons, our yearbook artist. Since he must stay at Apponequet after we are graduated, we would like to leave him to all future Senior classes hoping that they will come to appreciate him as much as we have . . .

I was sponsored by the Apponequet Reservation So- ciety for a tour of any one of the 50 states of my choice. I chose Hawaii, because . . . Well, if you don ' t know. I ain ' t a gonna tell you! By the way. my eligibility consists of my being the only Indian attending A.H.S. Also I am in the top 99 per cent of my class. As we prepared for take-off at the Circle Airport, I remarked to pilots " Jim Holden " and " Larry Oliveira " that the runway was circular. They politely informed me that it had been designed and built by world famous " Dave White " and " Gary Adams " to avoid collisions. After allowing stewardess " Sue Vera " to fasten my seat belt, I recogniz- ed " Sue Fernandes " , who was making the trip in order to purchase grass skirts at a discount for Berk ' s and " Danny Gibbons, " who was planning to enter a water skiing contest. At that point " Peggy Foley, " also a stewardess, offered me the light menu. My choice, rare beef steak, was served five minutes later, still glowing softly, by former Chef major, " Tiger Medeiros. " After a satisfactory flight, I was met at the airport by nurses " Dee Baker, " " Carol Lopes, " " Terry LaRochelle, " and " Irene Singster, " who were checking on a rumored air sickness epidemic. After my luggage was searched by policewoman " Ronnie Lyons, " who was hot on the trail of a narcotics jjeddler. I decided to check into the Aloha Hotel, owned by " Barry French " and operated by " Bob Gray. " Ahead of me, attending a secretarial convention, were " Lynn Allan. " " Jackie " and " Tiny Bolduc. " " Julie Cam- peau, " " Caroline DeMoranville, " " Sue Moniz, " " Nancy Morland, " " Carolyn Pear- son " and " Byrn Williams. " Before attending the night ' s floor show featuring " Glenna Chase " and " Kathy Jordan " and a special number, " Jingle Bells, " sung by " Linda Silvan, " " Gail Haskins, " " Carolyn Smith, " and " Butch Begin, " and arranged by " James Sheridan, " I decided to have my pigtails trimmed by hotel barber, " Roger Alves. " While in the barber shop. I noticed a wanted poster for the capture of " Charles Hadsell, " alias " Chuck-o, " " Puddy " and " Franny. " The charge was taking candy from a baby, filed by governess " Diane Gurney. " While wandering through the streets, I came upon " Pam Chace, " " Donna DeMoranville, " " Chris Langlois, " " Sharon Peabody, " and " Lois Sullivan, " who were teaching the natives to shred coconut fcr commercial benefits. After returning to the hotel, I was told that elevator operator, " Razzes Caswell, " had been stranded between floors, but that " Ralph Freeman " had freed him by cutting the cable. After climbing the stairs to the 69th floor, I noticed a light under the door of the room next to mine. Inside was Professor " Knobs Norris, " who was burning the midnight oil in order to perfect his new and better mouse trap. I was awakened next morning by " Willie Howard " collecting for the Hawaiian March of Dimes and who had already received S27.10 in donations. On the way down to the beach I observed " Pretty Boy Gutowski, " " Bud Nelson, " and " Joe Sawicki " coaching Hula girls while " Dave Barton " accompanied them on his bongos. Further on, I met renowned artist, " Sam Nepini, " who was under contract to paint the town. On the beach, I listened to " Bev Ashley " who was translating " Betty Townsend ' s " latest script for Hawaiian I into " French " for sale abroad, until I fell asleep. I awoke in my own teepee on Long Pond to discover it was all a dream, but dreams sometimes come true! OUR BEST WISHES . . . " Scratch the green rind of a sapling, or wantonly twist it in the soil, and a scarred or crooked oak will tell of the act for centuries to come. So it is with the teachings of youth, which make impressions on the mind and heart that are to last forever. " Amiel MISS ANNE ANDREWS MRS. MARGARET PORTER Bristol Ferry School, Portsmouth, R. I.

We know that we speak not only for ourselves but for the entire school and community when we say that to have known them is a privilege; to have studied with them, an in- spiration; and to invoke for them continued happiness, our most sincere wish. 24 Polarion Staff Your high school years are full of mem- ories — victorious moments, sad failures, carefree fun and laughter. We, your co- editors, have tried to gather as many mem- ories as possible for you to store in your yearbook. Of course we couldn ' t include them all. but we tried our best! When you read the Polarion a few years after you are graduated, we are sure many wonderful memories of Apponequet will be recalled. New ordeals and experiences have faced you continuously in your last two years here; you have shouldered them well. We hope, as you face the world, that you meet it with the same vigor and determination.
