B. F. A. Mercury 13 Ted Arel, Lawrence Raymond, Gary McEwen, Lee Guertin, Armand Mossey, Louis Chabot, Ronald WVelles and their manager, Bob Bou- dreau, as our contribution to the football picture. The girls, basketball team show Tiny Rich as a fast moving forward and Dorothy Aldrich as a hard-fighting guard. Here the picture is brightened, as spring has arrived, and we see Ready, Arel, Chabot, Sar- gent, Guertin and McEwen once more on Coote Field ready to start the baseball season. This year we were co-champions of baseball in the Northern League. For a quick group of scenes we see Betty Towle, Larry Raymond and Carol Asprey on their way to Burlington to take part in the All- State Chorus. Louis Chabot, Gary McEwen, Dave Ready and Fred Dworshak look like real politicians as they return from Boys, State. These four girls have their share of politics as they attend Girls' State, Nita Hill, Barbara Casavant, Betty Towle, and Mary Hungerford. Yes, we had a play. There is the cast of i'Two Crooks and A Ladyn: Shirley Thompson, Louis Chabot, Tiny Rich, Rita Chenette, Gary McEwen and Thom Rock, with the director, Miss Beeman. Yes, we lost. The next scene shows the sparkle and color of our Iunior Prom. The television screen clouds for a minute, to indicate the passage of time during Junior Final Examinations. Once more the screen is clear and it is the fall of 1950. We all pose for this picture before we start our last year. Ted Arel, president, Mary Hungerford, vice- president, Cliff Sargent, secretary, and Iune Colomb, treasurer, are our choices to lead us this year. NV e are fortunate to get this group in one pic- ture: Leo Nardine, Milford Denner, Ronald XVelles, Armand Mossey, Arthur Bushey, and YVoody Barlow, all members of our Armed Forces. ln the limelight in this scene are the director, Miss Beeman, and the cast of our Senior Play, "Skidding'i: Polly Sheltra. Bernard Cadieux, Faith Britch, Carol Asprey, Guy johnson, Larry King, Betty Swisler, Thom Rock, Betty Towle and Bob Smart. Our camera took a quick shot of the B. F. A. stage when Miss Beeman directed the Seniors in this year's junior Iamboree, "Curses, The Vil- lian is Foiledn. Thom Rock, Betty Swisler, Faith Britch, Bob Smart, Tiny Rich, and Guy johnson are the cast. Now the reason for this picture- we won, after taking part four years in the Iam- boree. It was a great year in basketball. The Bob- whites were co-champions of the Northern League, and the Comets under Doc Comiis gui- dance were State Champions. Our television camera brought both groups together-David Ready, Ted Arel, Louis Chabot, Gary McEwen, Mary Hungerford, Terry Leduc, Tiny Rich, Bar- bara Casavant, Virginia Dacey, and Shirley Thompson. Here is a quickie of our Senior Supper. Mary Hungerford is the hostess, and Ted Arel, host. Nita Hill and Louis Chabot are taking the honors as Good Citizens. The bus is in front of B. F. A. as june Colomb, Carol Asprey, Polly Sheltra, Nancy Davis, Shir- ley Thompson, Fred Dworshak, Larry Raymond, james Abell, and Lee Guertin climb aboard to participate in All-State Music Festival. Another scene of the editorial room of the Mercury finds Nita Hill, Fred Dworshak, Betty Towle, Gloria Green, Carol Asprey, Bob Smart, Mary Hungerford, Iohn Kendrick, Betty Swisler, Barbara Casavant, Ioan lean, Virginia Dacey, Faith Britch, Mary lean Luneau, Shirley Thomp- son, Mary Cantell, Eunice Messier, Eleanor Sweet, Nancy Davis, Marion Berger, Polly Shel- tra, Larry Raymond, getting out the final edition of the Mercury. The light seems to be fading on the screen, but we still have time to catch a few short scenes of the Mercury banquet, Ivy Day, Class Day, Baccalaureate Service, and last minute happen- ings. Now the screen is dark. VVe have only mem- ories of our four years at B. F. A., our pleasant contacts with Mr. Sunderland and members of the faculty, our close association with our fellow students. Through the medium of television, these scenes on film will many times in years to come llash happily across our minds.

Instead, in keeping with our times, we would like to have you relax and en- joy the panorama of highlights of our class over the television set. The setting is B. F. A., the time, September, 1947, the actors, the brand new, quite bewilder- ed, ever so slightly green, members of the pres- ent class of '51. Our first official business was the election of class officers. Walking across the screen are Guy johnson, president, Clifford Sargent, vice- president, Ted Arel, secretary, and Louis Chabot treasurer. A colorful picture is presented of our Fresh- man Beception, a yearly rite, at which the sopho- mores are the hosts. Youill note the lack of up- per classmen. Now here is a lone figure with a baseball. Thatis right, that freshman year we -had but one representative in the field of sports-eTed Arel, who made the Varsity squad. The girls, not to be outdone, gave us Ieanette Belair and Evelyn Chevalier as cheerleaders. Our scene changes quickly to B. F. A. audi- torium. Here we have the cast of the freshman play, "Life O, The Partyv, and their director, Miss Hortense Beeman: Gary McEwen, Gloria Greene, Ianice Church, Betty" Towle, Robert Smart, Gloria Frazier, joan jean, Evelyn Cheva- lier, Guy johnson, Fred Dworshak, Boland Bar- low and Lawrence Raymond. We are 'sad-we lost to the sophomores. Quickly moving to September, 1948, the group you see is no longer the bewildered class it was a year agol Here it has a bit more con- fidence, ready to start its sophomore year, Taking a bow are the new class officers: Guy johnson, president, Louis Chabot, vice-presi- dent, Ted Arel, secretary, and Armand Mossey, treasurer. For our sports review, we have Ted Arel and Cliff Sargent in baseball and Dorothy Aldrich in basketball. Betty Towle, Ieanette Belair, and Evelyn Chevalier are the cheerleaders. The year passes quickly and we find ourselves once more on the stage in the Junior Iamboree with our director, Miss Beeman, in "Gratitude,'. Our actors are Betty Towle, Carol Asprey, Glo1'ia Greene, Polly Sheltra, and Fred Dworshak. We still look sad-the Freshmen won the plaque. Hereis a close-up of Fred Dworshak, who won first prize in a Safety Campaign Contest on his essay, "How Can We Make Our Highways Safer for Our Citizensiw We find Mary Hungerford, Barbara Casa- vant, Virginia Dacey, Nita Hill, and Faith Wil- son sitting around a large table. If you look carefully you will see that they are helping to get the Mercury ready for press. Another September. 1949 is the year. Now you can see our same group entering B. F. A. as upper classmen. The shyness is nearly gone, there is more certainty in everything we do, and we feel this is the year that belongs to us. We wasted no time in electing Louis Chabot, president, Tiny Rich, vice-president, Janice Church, secretary, and Fred Dworshak custo- dian of our funds, to guide us through our junior year. Several members of our class were elected to the Student Council. They were Mary Hunger- ford, vice-president, Nita Hill, secretary, Pauline Sheltra, Iames Abell, Terry Leduc and Louis Chabot, home room representatives. This yearis sportscast shows Arthur Bushey,
