ONE HUNDREDTH ANNIVERSARY Charles E. Paine There is a tradition in American life and literature of the school-master whose influ- ence remains with his pupils long after they have left his classes. Such a man is Charles E. Paine. He has been honored by election to the presidency of many organizations, among them the Barnard Club and the Brown University Teachers' Association. But we honor him as a teacher whose love of classical scholarship has been warmed and humanized by his interest in people. He was born on October l0, 1873, in Springfield, Massachusetts, After graduating from SpringHeld's Central High, he went to Harvard University. Here he was a great sports' enthusiast. Charles Paine was a fa- miliar figure on the tennis court, the track field, and the skating rink. Skating has always been one of his favorite sports. Ac- companied by another ambitious skater, he would often make a little trip of thirty miles up the Connecticut River, and take the train back. Perhaps one of the reasons for his ar- dent interest in this sport was the fact that he met Sarah Lawrence, the future Mrs. Paine, at a college skating party. His devotion to sports, however, did not take away his attention from his studies. For two years he was a brilliant pre-medical stu- dent at Harvard, but when his family moved to Providence, he transferred to Brown Uni- versity from which he graduated in 1898. He passed his medical examination with the mark of ninety-nine, but suddenly changing his mind, he decided to become a teacher. He was Assistant Principal at Lakewood, New Jersey High School for three years. He returned to Brown for his Master of Arts degree, and then taught at the Wilbraham Academy near Springfield, where he was the head of the Latin and History Departments. In l903 he began the first year of his career at Classical, a career of forty years of teaching in our school. From the very beginning Charles Paine endeared himself to all his pupils. When he became principal, he continued Mr. Peck's championship of the school's standards of scholarship. Many attempts have been made to discourage the study of Greek and Latin in Classical High. Mr. Paine has always successfully resisted these efforts to oust the classics from our curriculum. He has held assemblies, prepared word lists, invited outside speakers to encourage their study. In this way he has infiuenced many to study the classics, for which we're always grateful. Mr. Paine translated a famous line into Latin to be the motto of Classical High: 'ACertare, petere, reperire, sed non cederef' Interested in scholarship, he yet finds time for many hobbies. Mr. Paine possesses a great amount of nautical skill. He once built his own boat, 4-IM feet in length, and that is quite a feat, especially for a student of the classics. Every spring Mr. Paine and Mrs. Paine entertained the graduating class and members of the faculty on a trip to Potter's Cove and Narragansett Pier in his boat. On this boat he and Mrs. Paine spent six happy summers, but when war broke out, they de- cided to sell it. Mrs. Paine, too, has always been a wonderful friend of the school. It was she who, after having been attracted by the brightness and color of the cheerleaders in Boston Ciardens. sponsored them at Classical. We have seen our principal and Mrs. Paine at all our dances, games, plays, and assemblies. They have fitted their lives into the routine of our school. His fostering of athletics here, we have related elsewhere in the history of our school. We shall always remember Mr. Paine best, however, for his kind, loving in- terest in us. Whenever we have had a sug- gestion, problem, or complaint, we have been sure of understanding counsel from him. A theme written by a Freshman soon after she entered Classical shows how very sincere pu- pils are in their respect for their principal: "When I entered Classical, I was a little scared. I didn't know what to do or where to go. I was about to ask information when I saw a pleasant man walking down the cor- ridor. I didn't hesitate because he looked so friendly and kind. Before he reached me, I had a chance to watch and draw my own conclusions about him. Everything about and on him seemed just right, His silver hair blended beautifully with his happy smile and his kind eyes. In addition, his dress was so neat and Htting that nothing could have been changed to appear better. Before either one of us spoke, I knew that this man would al- ways prove to be a good friend. And when he spoke, I felt as if I had known him all my life. I shall always think of our principal as the kind man with the pleasant smile who made me feel comfortable in my new sur- roundings at Classical High." Perhaps it is because of his kindness that, according to him, each graduation class has always been "the best we ever had." When he retires in June, his greatest loss will be leaving 'fall his children."
