With graduation fast approaching the members of the class of 1938 pause for a few
moments' reminiscence, as, soon, the doors of Edward Little will be closed behind them forever.
At the beginning of their sophomore year, they elected to the Student Council: john Bower,
Eileen Clark, Daniel Drummond, Irna Lehner, Beatrice Packard, William Rogers, Barbara
Sinclair, and Leonard Zenkevitch.

Board. The entire Board then chose Theodora Rizoulis as the secretary-treasurer.

presidentg and Beatrice Packard, secretary-treasurer.
At mid-years, when the senior Library Proctors are replaced by sophomores, John Bower,
Priscilla Haskell, John james, Irna Lehner, Rena Rolerson, and Barbara Sinclair were selected.
Elroy Briggs, prominent sophomore athlete, was awarded a position on the All-Tourney
team in recognition of his excellent performance in the Western Maine Hoop Tournament.
Leonard Zenkevitch also did outstanding work on the football squad.
Vacation passed all too swiftly. In September, 1936, the class of '38 began its junior year.
Eileen Clark, Carl Getchell, Priscilla Haskell, Ovis McAllister, Allan Pulsifer, Barbara
Sinclair, and Raymond Whiting won posts. Carl Getchell was elected vice-president.
From a group trying out for the Assembly Board, John James, Verna Read, and Theodora
Rizoulis made the grade. John James was named vice-president.
When the Junior Ring Committee was formed, Irna Lehner, John James, and Raymond
Whiting were selected as members. This year, the center symbol of the new school seal, a
bas-relief of the statue of Edward Little, was used on a class ring for the first time.

music for the occasion. Those on the Executive Committee were William Rogers, Priscilla
Haskell, John James, Irna Lehner, Glenna Urquhart, and Ernest Zallen.
In the fall of 1937, Marcel Boucher, Carl Getchell, John James, William Rogers, Rena
Rolerson, Barbara Sinclair, Milton Ware, Edward Williams, and Ruth Wyer became the senior
members of the Student Council. John James was chosen president, Carl Getchell, vice-
president, and Rena Rolerson, secretary-treasurer.
When the returns from the class elections were counted, it was found that Raymond

The Assembly Board itself re-appointed John James, and Raymond Whiting, Verna Read,
and Theodora Rizoulis won position in the try-outs.

E. L. ll. S. Song
Thereis a school that is dear to the hearts of all,
It is E. L. H. S. fair,
There's a name that whene,er we hear its call,
Comes a shout that fills the air.
There's a place that we love with a love as true
As the stars in heaven blestg
And though others may jeer, we will join in a cheer
For the bravest, the grandest, the best.
Oh, E. L. H. S. for evermore
Conquerors, leaders of the way,
In all competing, never retreating,
We must win today.
So forward then and never quail,
Onward to the victory,
Then we,ll sing to thee our
Hail! Hail! Hail!
Was there ever a lad who could play the game?
He's from E. L. H. S. fair.
Was there ever a maid, with lovely name?
She was educated there.
Was there ever a hero whom others praised
For his deeds of eminence?
Then yozfll know for his might, he has searched aright,
In the school that is grandest and hest.

The purpose of the Student Council is to maintain high ideals among the students of
L. H. S. and to promote co-operation between the students and faculty.
This council is made up of representatives from the home-rooms of the school. The group
meets with Principal Turner whenever it is necessary to discuss and act upon school prohlems
which arise through the year. The council considers all matters pertaining to the best interests
of the school. These include the promotion of dances, afternoon parties and the puhlication of
handhoolcs for the incoming sophomores. The aim of the council is to be a continuous source of
inspiration and guidance to the school activities.
In the fall the council sponsored a very successful reception to the incoming sophomores, the
second of its kind to he held at Edward Little. Students and their parents were presented to the
members of the faculty and to the upperclassmen at an informal party.
This year the council procured some greatly needed megaphones for the cheerleaders. The
council also purchased mirrors for the boys, loclcer rooms.
The oflicers of the council were: President, john -Iamesg Vice-President, Carl Getchell,
Secretary-Treasurer, Rena Rolerson.

We, the ORACLE staff, have more or less followed the beaten track, but have deviated now
and then to introduce some ideas of our own.
The most important innovation was the drawing up of a contract with one firm for all the
professional photography in the ORACLE. The local studios were asked to bid and the contract
was awarded to the one making the best offer. This produced more uniform results, saved
money for the students, and eliminated wear and tear on everyone concerned. A photography
department was also introduced. Instead of the customary New England, a better quality of
paper, Cumberland Gloss, has been used.
We chose the theme, "The Doors of Edward Little High School," because it seemed to be
an appropriate means of linking together memories of our school days at E. I.. H. S.
We talce this opportunity to thanlc Mrs. Anna Kennedy for the hard worlc and unflagging
assistance she expended in her capacity as faculty adviser, also Mr. Robert Chandler for his able
conduct of the financial end of this enterprise. We also wish to express our gratitude to Miss
Frances Woods for overseeing the typing of material, to Miss Ruth Coan for proofreading,
and to Blanche Dostie for typing.

The 1937-1933 stali of the Sfafimi li. L. H. S. edited a very successful school paper which
won second class prize in the nation-wide contest sponsored hy the Columhia Scholastic Press
Association. This is the third successive year that the Slalion has received this honor. The paper
was entered in the class for schools which have an enrollment of 301-800 students.
The Station is published twelve times during the school year. Shortly after the middle of
the year, a new stati composed of juniors goes into office and the retiring editors devote their
time to editing the ORACLE, the school yearlvoolc.
The staff led hy Daniel Drummond, editor-in-chief, consisted of managing editor, Carl
Balcerg associate editors. Richard Gardner and Raymond Wfhitingg news editor, Theodora
Rizoulisg hoys' sports editor. Arnold Card, girls' sports editor, Priscilla Haskellg humor editor,

manager, John James, and exchange editor, Natalie Walker. These students toolc over the
Sfation in Felwruary, 1937.
This year the paper has added a new column called "The Commentator" which deals with
the life of some distinguished person or with outstanding events. So far this new column has
proved a most valuahle and interesting addition to the paper. A new position, that of news
editor, was created this year. This editor is held responsible for collecting, distributing and
proofreading all material of news importance. It is helieved that in this way the hurden of the
editor-in-chief would he lightened to some extent.

The Senior Dramatic Club is one of two organizations at Edward Little that offers a student
an opportunity to display his dramatic ability. Throughout the year plays and skits are staged,
and members of the club are trained as stage managers, prompters, electricians, and coaches.
Programs for monthly meetings have included a demonstration in the art of stage make-up
by Miss Jessie Alley, and an entertaining talk about the Passion Play by Miss Edna Cornforth
who showed many interesting pictures of the Passion players. john Bartlett, a student of Bates
College, gave an address on the values of a college education, and Miss Margaret Jordan spoke
on subjects having to do with play production.

presented at student assemblies. The cast of "The Music Box" included Robert McLaughlin,
Theodora Rizoulis, Julia Small, Paul Bornstein, Raymond Whiting, Ernest Zallen, Priscilla

One of Edward Little High School's most successful activities both from the artistic and
the financial standpoints has been the annual senior drama coached in recent years with signal
success by Miss Margaret jordan, For the last two or three years Miss jordan has been ably
assisted by Miss Christine Norwood.
This year the play chosen was "New Firesi' by Charles Quimby Burdette. The story centers
around the Santry family. Stephen Santry, the father, is a writer. He is greatly worried
because his family devotes its energies solely to having a good time, and knows nothing what-
ever of the real values of life. He inherits a farm from an eccentric uncle and goes there to do
some writing. Shortly he sends for his family thinking that it will be a good idea to get them
away from their frivolous pursuits. They arrive expecting to have a great deal of fun. Con-
sternation reigns when Stephen announces that he who wants food and raiment must work
for it. This naturally results in some highly entertaining episodes.
The characters in the play were as follows: Stephen Santry, Robert McLaughlin, Anne, his
wife, Verna Read, Billy, his son, Arnold Card, Phyllis, his daughter, Glenna Urquhart, Olive,
his daughter, Ruth Wyerg Eve, his daughter-in-law, Irna Lehnerg Dick, his son, Royce Abbott,

The Kappa Pi Dramatic Club is a newly formed organization composed of juniors who are
interested in amateur dramatics. This is the first time in the history of Edward Little that the
junior class has been given the opportunity to show its histrionic ability. Although there are
only twenty-two members, the club has enjoyed a good season.
"A Modern Thanksgiving" was the club's first effort. This one-act play was presented in
an assembly, and was well received. Those in the cast were Pauline Eith, Mary Allen, Harold
Wheeler, John Bewley, Norman Ostrofi, and Burton Wfilner. "Angel Aware," the next presen-
tation, received great acclaim. It was first offered at an assembly, and later was given before
the Thalian Club, and then before the Art and Literature Club. Those in the cast were: Shirley
Grovo, Burton Wilner, Sally Rubinofi, Mary Garrity, Edythe Lyon, Norman Ostrofi, Alfred
Dawes, Jr. Clinton Daley was the organ-grinder off-stage.
The club entered the Maine One-Act Play Contest with "Angel Awarcn and won in the
district preliminary contest, defeating Lewiston and Winthrop. Edward Little was in turn
defeated by Brunswick High School which won the right to compete in the Final Drama
Tournament at Bowdoin.
Miss Ruth Coan, a new instructor at Edward Little this year, is the faculty adviser and she
will continue in that capacity next year when the present junior club will automatically become
the Senior Dramatic Club. Tryouts, however, will be held again next year for those who wish
to become members.

In accordance with the constitution, tryouts for membership to the Assembly Board were
held in the auditorium in October. At this time, three members from each class are chosen by
a committee made up of representatives from the student body and from the faculty. The
retiring board appoints from its group an additional member to the senior group, thus assuring
the retention of a competent and experienced chairman. The aim of this organization is to
present worth-while assemblies every other Friday, or more frequently if advisable.
This year the board has presented speeches, recitals, plays, and motion pictures. Among the
speakers were: Commander Donald Macmillan, the famous Arctic explorer, and Dr. Leslie
Grossmith, the internationally known pianist and lecturer. During the year various departments
of the school have given demonstrations of their respective activities.
Miss Christine Norwood is the faculty adviser, and all chairmen of the various assemblies
are directly responsible to her.

Debating at Edward Little High toolc a decided turn for the better this year although only
one member, Mary Allen, had had previous experience.
Lincoln Robinson and George Hammond represented the high school in the Bowdoin
League. Although these two boys won no honors, they did gain much needed experience.
Eight debaters prepared the material for the Bates League question. Edward Little spon-
sored a practice tournament which was attended by an unusually large number of students from

In accordance with the usual custom, only members of the junior class were elected officers
of the Sodalitas Latina. Hitherto all entertainments have been given by the club as a whole.
This year, however, every class has conducted at least one meeting. Because of this, the pro-
grams have been more interesting and varied as each class strove to outdo the others.
Meetings were held every other Monday in the home room of Miss Jessie Alley, the faculty
adviser. Ar these meetings a business session was held followed by some form of entertainment.
At one of the meetings a "Vox Popn program was presented during which several students
were brought before the mike and asked questions dealing with Latin problems.
The elections of the Sodalitas Latina are usually held before midyears at which time the
club chooses twelve sophomores whose ranks in Latin must be at least of certificate grade.
On April 8 in an assembly, the club presented a Roman wedding depicting in several scenes
the ancient marriage customs. The robes of the officials, the uniforms and armor of the
soldiers and lictors, and the colorful and picturesque garments of the members of the wedding
party were accurately portrayed, and the stage setting was unusual and beautiful.
A committee of three composed of Mary Allen, Theodora Rizoulis, and Shirley Grovo
revised the constitution at the beginning of the year.

Although the E. L. H. S. Science Club is a comparatively new organization, it has attracted
many students and has had a busy schedule. This club has made it possible for those students
who have a special interest in biology, chemistry, or physics to talce up various phases of these
studies for which there is not sufiicient time in class. Thus, every student has an opportunity to
come baclc after school hours to work on any project which interests him.
This organization was founded by Mr. Arthur Yeaton in 1935. and was really an outgrowth
of the Camera Club,
Under the guidance of Mr. Robert Chandler and Mr. Alden Cleaves. students have
observed, studied, and discussed such fascinating subjects as photography, astronomy, static
electricity. electric motors, and the manufacture of certain products such as ice cream. A great
variety of material is shown and inspected at various meetings.
The club visited manufacturing concerns to observe the actual commercial application of
scientihc lcnowledge. Trips to the mountains were taken to gain information about barometric
pressure. Excursions were made to the Bleachery and the Bates Mill where the members
watched the making of cloth. Everyone found it a pleasant and a profitable method of acquiring

When the new building was annexed in 1930, the Library Proctor's Club was organized by
a group of seniors under the supervision of Miss Edna Cornforth and Principal L. E. Moulton.
As every year brought forth a group of inexperienced seniors to be trained in the care of the
library, a different system was inaugurated in 1934. According to this plan, sophomores and
juniors are eligible for membership. These students are recommended by their English teachers
and are elected and instructed by the retiring members. Then, until mid-years in their senior
year, they remain the proctors of the library.
The proctors are glad to announce that the following books have been added to the library:
"Th: Main Stream of French Literaturef, by Guyerg "Chants de France," by jameson and

The Hi-Y Clulw originated at the Y. M. C. A. About eight years ago it became a recog-
nized extra-curricular activity of Edward Little. Its main purpose is to create, maintain. and
extend throughout the school and community, high standards of Christian character. The clulfs
function is to hring together those hoys who are sincerely interested in Christian standards for
personal as well as for school life. Meetings are held regularly every other Monday evening
at the Y. M. C. A.
This organization helps to promote many projects in the school, and this year it has spon-
sored a very active program. Included in this were the footliall dance,-the proceeds of which
were donated to the Edward Little Athletic Association-a sleigh ride, and interesting addresses
made lwy well-lcnown spealcers. Among the latter were Professor Mahee and Professor Myhrman
of Bates Collegeg Sam Connor and Norman Thomas of The Lewiston Sim-journal: and Tad
O'Brien, Vice-President of the State of Maine foothall officials. The cluh had charge of two
school assemlvlies, at one of which a play was presented and at the other, a speaker.

The Home Economics Club has been very active this year. More interest has been shown
in it than for many years.
During the Christmas vacation the members of the club collected discarded toys. A com-
mittee was then chosen to wrap up these toys artistically and to send them to the Red Cross to
be distributed to needy children. The girls derived much satisfaction from the knowledge that
they were doing their part to brighten the Christmas holidays for unfortunate and under-
Meetings took place regularly every Monday at various places. Several were held in the
form of supper parties. The girls cooked the meals in the school's foods laboratory. They have
also enjoyed a ski hike and candy-pull at the home of Hazel Meade.
Etiquette has been studied extensively along with home-planning and decorating.
Miss Ann Purvis and Miss Dorothy Anderson are the faculty advisers.

The Order of Gregg Artists is the largest shorthand organization in the world. There arc
hundreds of thousands of members from countries all over the world. The O.G.A. was
inaugurated in 1912, and since that time has been an important factor in contributing to the
development of practical shorthand writing skill. Winning the O.G.A. certificate is an undis-

A Complete Theory Certificate is awarded to students who qualify in one of the tests pub-
lished each month in a Shorthand News Letter. The tests of one hundred words each embrace
various principles in the Manual and are designed to test the student's knowledge of shorthand
theory. The passing grade to secure a certificate is 90'Qf . This certificate, also, is required by
many schools for promotion and graduation.
The first transcription certihcate is available to those who are able to write sixty words a
minute for five minutes and transcribe the material neatly and accurately.
A forty-word typing pin is awarded to those students who type at a rate of forty words a

This year the band has been conducted on the same plan as the orchestra has. Rehearsals
have been held fourth period on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Because of this new plan, the
membership has risen to thirty-eight, and next year it is expected that thirty-five musicians will
come from Webster and ten from Walton. This addition will make the biggest band in the
history of our school.
Edward Little had no band last year, but the splendid progress made this year shows what
can be done when there is sufficient material. The band played both at football games and at
assemblies. The school has received much commendation for our band from various sources and
feels justly proud.
The band also took part in the Minstrel Show and benefited financially thereby. The
Lewiston-Auburn Rotary Club, pleased with the band's success, very kindly donated one
hundred dollars to the music department. This money was used in buying new horns for the
band, and chairs for the orchestra.
Plans are being made to have a drillmaster next year to lead the band at the football games.
Also the music department hopes that by next year each band member will have a uniform.

A new system has been devised this year whereby the orchestra rehearsals are conducted on
school time rather than in after school hours as had been the custom hitherto. This change of
program has made possible a larger enrollment in the various musical organizations which
Edward Little offers. More people have joined the orchestra this year than ever before.
The orchestra numbers forty-seven. Although this is a fairly large group, many vacancies
still exist which should be easily filled next year if the present interest continues.
There is always a demand for stringed instruments such as violins, viols, and cellos. Further-
more there are many openings for basses, Woodwinds, and especially for bassoons.
Drchestra rehearsals are held two times a week, fourth period on Mondays and Wediiesdays.
The orchestra has entertained at assemblies and at the one-act play contest held in the
Edward Little auditorium. It also played during the acts at the Senior Drama.
At present there are eight seniors, thirteen juniors, and twenty-four sophomores. Next year
it is anticipated that the membership will exceed sixty.
A bass horn and a saxophone were bought this year and there is a possibility that next year
a French horn will be purchased.

Edward Little High School had an exceptionally large Glee Club this year with about one
hundred girls enrolled, sixty-two in the junior-senior unit and thirty-eight in the sophomore.
The two clubs held their meetings every Thursday afternoon under the able guidance of
Mr. Russell jaclc, the Supervisor of Music. Regular singing sessions which lasted two periods
took place in the auditorium. Mr. Jack gave the girls vocal exercises before the singing sessions
to improve the quality and range of their voices. The girls sang three part music consisting of
first soprano, second soprano, and alto.
Many members of the organization aided the Athletic Association in presenting a minstrel
in March, some singing in the chorus, and the rest assisting in various other capacities. This
minstrel was such a marked success that it will probably become an annual feature. The Glee
Club received part of the proceeds.
As the Glee Clubs were larger and better trained this year, they sang on many occasions in
assemblies. At Christmas time a special group of girls sang at the High Street Congregational

Graduation exercises. This summer he plans to hold an hour's daily singing school over a period
of six weeks so that by the time school opens in the fall he will have better trained voices to
work with the coming year.
Mr. jack feels that the Glee Club should be put on school time in order to insure better
attendance and more effective accomplishment. By means of this summer session he hopes to
demonstrate to the school authorities that, given time and opportunity, he can produce an
Owing to the scarcity of equipment, he intends to reduce the number of voices from one
hundred to hfty. In the future he will award pins in recognition of two years' service. In the
junior high schools the period hitherto devoted to singing--which is a required subject-has
occupied only half an hour. Mr. Jack wishes to lengthen this period.
Officers of the club are: President, Muriel Pontbriandg Vice-President, Nelda Crockett,

In this, its third year, the Edward Little Athletic Council accomplished more than ever
before. This group sponsors all athletic activities of the Edward Little High School. Six
representatives from the student body who are lettermen and usually the captains of the various
teams serve on the board. The members this year are: Leonard Zenkevitch, footballg Elroy
Briggs, basketballg Mickey Meserve, baseballg Constanteen Blake, track, Marcel Boucher, swim-
mingg and Royce Abbott, winter sports. Besides these boys the Council includes: Linwood
Dwelley, athletic directorg Perley S. Turner, principal, Fred Bryant, of the high school facultyg
Harry Newell. and Paul Brogan, coaches, and Earle Chesley, of the Auburn School Board.
All officers of the Council and lettermen representing the dillerent sports are elected annually
at the regular meeting in june, and assume their duties the following September.
The Council this year has agreed to issue sweaters to those who may earn them in each of
the major sports: football, basketball, and baseball. It approves all purchases of equipment,
elects managers, awards letters and sweaters, promotes athletic rallies, and does other things
pertaining to athletics.
Representing as it does so many phases of athletics, this council makes an excellent clearing
house for settling disputes and for arriving at the most effective results.

The 1937 Edward Little football season was not very successful although it was an improve-
ment over that of last year. The Eddies won two games, lost six, and played one tie. Indications
for next year, however, point to a fine team with several experienced men returning.
The Eddies won their opening game with Westbrook, 13-6. The first score of the Confer-
ence schedule as well as the iirst score of the Edward Little season came when Billy Rogers
passed to Arnold Card for a touchdown in the second period. john James recovered a kickoff
in the end zone for the Eddies, second touchdown. Westbrook scored in the third period, but
the Eddies held the lead to win their first tussle of the year.
In the second game, the Eddies took an early lead on lVIatthew's great line plunging, but
they could not hold it and the Hebron Reserves pushed across three touchdowns to win 18-7.
In the all-important Lewiston game the Eddies lost 13-6. Lewiston scored early when they
recovered a fumble near the Ghosts' goal line. The Eddies came to within one point of tying
the score when Lem Hamblin blocked and recovered a Lewiston punt for a touchdown. Lewiston
again scored on a pass in the fourth period to clinch the game.
The Eddies showed little in the Portland game losing 18-0. Cus Blake, who was tried out
in the backfield during this match, made a good showing.
At the Deering game the Eddies produced their best football of the year. Deering took an
early 7-0 lead on passes. Blake's plunging and Capano's pass to Hamblin resulted in an
Edward Little touchdown. Deering again scored, and with four minutes left to play led 13-6.
Then on a punt runback, Billy Rogers threw a lateral to Arnold Card who ran 30 yards to the
goal line. Card then tied up the game with a place kick. With forty seconds left to go, Rogers
passed to Hamblin for the winning score.
Page One Hundred' Eighteen
In the next encounter Biddeford and the Eddies played their second consecutive scoreless tie.
Lem Hamblin and Billy Rogers put on a good passing offense, but were unable to click for a
Thornton trounced the Eddies 19-0, with the Sacoites off-tackles and reverses working to
perfection. The Eddies seldom threatened, but Rogers' passing and a 90 yard punt by Card
South Portland handed Edward Little an 18-0 licking. This game saw the Eddies display-
ing their worst football. Dyer, mammoth South Portland end, scored two touchdowns on
Finally came Armistice Day and with it the Lewiston game. But for the second time of the
season the Eddies were beaten by one touchdown, the score being 7-eO. The Eddies threatened
early in the game on a long run by Card, but were repulsed on the next play by a fumble and a
tricky ruling. Card got away for some other runs, but could not cross the final stripes. Len
Zenkevitch, playing his last game, climaxed a brilliant season by making tackle after tackle.
Len Zenkevitch was awarded a place on The S un- joumallr All-Maine team and also won a
tackle post on the All-Conference Eleven. Cus Blake and Arnold Card received All-Maine
The Eddies lose by graduation Lem Hamblin and Captain Mickey Meserve, ends: Len
Zenkevitch, tackle, Cus Blake and Alex Krapovicky, guards, Al Matthews, Billy Rogers, and
Arnold Card, backs. Also graduating are the following lettermen: John james, end, Deane
Cowles, tackle, Harry Goss and Lucien Pepin, guards, and George Deletetsky, center.
The lettermen who will form the backbone of next year's team are George Bergeron and
Harry jones, tackles, Don Dyer, and Earl Chesley, guards, Phil Clough and Bob Beaudry,
centers, and Lornie Arnold, Danny Capano, Frank Shaw, and Erburn Simpson, backs. Besides
these, Bob Leadbetter, Harlan Sturgis, Ernest Dow, Ralph Ridley, George Lobozzo, and others
have had experience.
This year's team was not so conservative as the Edward Little teams of the past few years.
They threw many passes and laterals. Billy Rogers and Danny Capano were both fine passers
and Lem Hamblin was a good receiver. Mickey Meserve and Arnold Card also caught their
share. The backfield threw laterals with reckless abandon with Lornie Arnold and Erburn
Simpson specializing in this art. The Eddies worked lateral plays for long gains in the West-
brook, Portland, and Lewiston games, and in the Deering encounter one lateral clicked for a
touchdown. In the Biddeford game, however, the Eddies were outshown in tossing the ball
around, when the Biddies threw as many as five laterals in one play.

The 1937-38 array of Edward Little basketeers led by Captain Elroy Briggs made a fine
record for their gruelling eighteen game schedule, winning eleven and dropping seven decisions.
In the class games Coach Newell had his first opportunity to look over the prospects for the
varsity. The juniors defeated the seniors in the Hnal game by a good score. The seniors had
previously trounced the sophomores, and the juniors had beaten the freshmen.
In their first taste of competition, the Eddies eked out a 25 to 24 win over a strong Alumni
The Auburnites won their next encounter defeating South Paris 42 to 19 in a game that
saw three complete Ghost teams competing.
Edward Little squeezed out a 28 to 24 win over Jay, who threatened in the last period,
coming up from far behind.
South Portland furnished the Eds their first Conference test and possessing too much power
defeated the Eddies 36 to 25.
The Bates Freshmen out shot the Eddies over at the Bates Gym to take the tussle 32 to 21.
Then came the best game of the year---that is for the Eddies. They beat Portland 30 to 29.
It was the first time that any team had beaten the Pale Blue in twenty-three conference games.
Portland led 9 to 0 at the end of the first period and 18 to 8 at the half. The Eds came out for
the second half with a new spirit. They worked all their plays with fine timing and as a result
climbed to within one point of the Portland boys' score. With ten seconds remaining, Erburn
Simpson sunk the winning basket to end the Portland streak.
Bates Frosh couldn't have heard about the Portland game for they smacked the Eds 33 to
16 in their next encounter.
Deering and the Eddies put on a close scrap at the Exposition Building, but the Purple had
the edge and won 38 to 31.
Page One Hundred Twenty
In the first game with Lewiston for five years, the Eddies were unable to start off the series
in the right way and were edged out 27 to 19. Briggs played a fine game. Although he did not
score a held goal, he did cage nine foul shots.
Portland got sweet revenge for the earlier licking handed to them by the Eds, and defeated
E. L. 30 to 24.
Westbrook forfeited to Edward' Little at Westbrook when one of their star players was
ejected because of disorderly conduct. The score at the time was E. L. 15, Westbrook 5. This
Westbrook game was the first of seven straight wins the Eddies then piled up.
Thornton was beaten 42 to 27, the Bowdoin Freshmen edged out 27 to 26, Westbrook again
was trounced 30 to 25, Thornton bowed to the Eddies for the second time 30 to 22, Deering
was defeated 35 to 32, and Bowdoin Freshmen bit the dust 31 to 19. g
South Portland broke the streak with a 36 to 22 defeat. This same South Portland team
later went on to win the Western Maine Tourney.
The Eddies were selected for the South Western Maine Tournament and drew Morse as an
opponent. Although Elroy Briggs, playing his last game, scored nineteen points, the Eds lost.
Indications are that Edward Little will have a fine team next year with five lettermen return-
ing: Lornie Arnold, guard, Harlan Sturgis, guard, Bob Leadbetter, center, Carl Monk, for-
ward, and Erburn Simpson, forward. Besides these boys, "Peanut" Desjardins, Fred Dick, and
Harry jones will be available.
Elroy Briggs was chosen All-Conference Forward for the third consecutive year. He led the
Conference in scoring and likewise the Big Twelve. He was the spearhead of the Eddies
attack, as Briggs went, so went the Eddies. The opponents usually spoke of the Eddies in terms
of one man, "Briggs"
Lem Hamblin also had a fine year. He didn't break into the lineup until after the season
started, but after that, he was hard to beat.
Albert Belliveau who played forward, Eddie Williams and john James, center, and Arnold
Card, who played about any position, were other members of the varsity squad. Briggs,
Hamblin, Belliveau, Williams, James, and Card are to be graduated this June.

Advance indications point to a successful Edward Little baseball season. The club, although
weak in pitching, was very strong in batting and fielding.
The Eddies won their first encounter with the Hebron Reserves 23-14 in a free-hitting
slugfest. During the season the Eddies also had games with Rumford, Berlin, Lewiston, and
Len Zenkevitch and Paul Cloutier handled the catching, Harry jones, Norm Lamb, Mickey
Meserve, Arnold Card, and Royce Abbott led the pitching.
Lornie Arnold and Bob McLaughlin played first base, john Bower, second, Frank Shaw,
shortstop, and Erburn Simpson, third base. Jim Heafy and Leo Pontbriand were also infielders.
The outfielders were all on the same par and their starting line-up was never the same. They
were Danny Capano, Lem Hamblin, Elroy Briggs, Mickey Meserve, Royce Abbott, and Peanut
A junior varsity team was coached this year by Walter Akerley and its schedule included
games with Lewiston Seconds, Coombs High of Bowdoinham, Lisbon Falls, and Brunswick.
Graduating this season will be Mickey Meserve, Arnold Card, Royce Abbott, Len

Edward Little has had such line swimming teams the past few years that she has always been
at the top of the list. But no team can expect to have extraordinary seasons every year, and this
year was certainly a lean one for the Eddie swimmers. Although Deane Cowles, james Soutar,
and Captain Marcel Boucher will swim no more for the Ghosts, the outlook for next winter is
promising. Wilner, Bain, Knowlton, McFadden, Glover, Taylor, Watson, Blossom, John
Hammond, Rand, and others will match strokes with the Eddie opponents next spring and are
sure to win their share of the meets.
The Eddies' first defeat came at the hands of a strong Hebron squad. The Ghosts suffered
successive defeats by small margins at the hands of Deering and Portland before they out-
Deering for the second time outswam the Eddies, the score being 37 to 29.
Portland narrowly escaped defeat winning by two points, 34 to 32.
Brunswick and Hebron were victorious over the Eds before the latter gained their victory of
the year, 52 to 13 over Lewiston.
The Eddies dropped their last meet to Brunswick 46 to 20.
In the State Championship at Bowdoin, the Eddies failed to retain their title and finished

Tennis has been on the upswing for several years now and last year there was a full schedule
for the first time. The boys had an excellent team and were virtually undefeated last year by
preparatory school teams, although they did bow to the Bates freshmen.
This season they had another good team although they were dropped in their first march
by a strong Hebron squad 9-0. The Eddies probably could have averted a shutout if their
leading player, john Abbott, had not been absent because of a sprained ligament in his leg.
John Abbott, Carl Monk, and Carl Baker are the only ones with experience this year.
As there are only two seniors on the team, Carl Baker and Paul Lafontaine, prospects are good

Last season the Edward Little golf team fared very well although its star golfer, Royce
Abbott, could not play as he was holding down third base on the baseball team. E. L. had
matches with Wilton, Lewiston, and other schools which officially sponsored teams.
Fewer students go out for golf than for other sports as it is a comparatively new inter-
scholastic arhletic activity, and as not many schools have easy access to a golf course. However,
its popularity is rapidly developing.
Anthony -Iencuis is coach, captain, and manager of this year's squad. Jencuis, Abbott, and
Carl Getchell graduate this June.
One match with Brunswick has already been played, which the Eddies won five to three.
Another match with Brunswick, and two each with Lewiston, Morse High School of Bath,
Hebron Academy, and Bridgton Academy have been scheduled.
The team uses the Martindale course for practice and home games.

The Girls' Athletic Association of l937Al938 concluded a very successful year as the result
of the efforts of its capahle officers and heads of sports. A program of nine sports was offered.
consisting of: howling, haslcethall, volley ball, tennis, hilcing, swimming, winter sports, hasehall,
The point system was replaced this year hy a new method of awards, hy which more girls
receive letters. According to this plan, any girl who makes a class team, is entitled to numerals:
any girl who makes either a red or a white team, receives a small E. Lg and any girl who malces
a varsity team is awarded an emhlem.
On April 7 a dance was held in the gymnasium to defray the cost of these insignia. The
money received in payment of dues was used to huv a pin for each memher of the Girls'
Bowling, usually the most popular sport, was again the highlight of the year. Witli a large
group of girls turning out, the team playoffs were completed. Wlien the class games tool: place,
the seniors won, with the juniors nosing out the sophomores for second place. The Wliite Team
left the Red Team far behind in their game. In the last match of the season, the Varsity
defeated the Faculty. This year the Varsity included: Barbara Sinclair, Captaing Glenna
Urquhart, Victoria Childs, Pauline Eitli. Nlarguerite Goodwin, janet Scruton, and June
Page Um' HlllIL1ft'Ll iliiivrily-eigfir
Another change took place in basketball. Instead of the former Round Robin Tournament,
two teams from each class played off, and the Red and White teams were chosen from those
who played. The players of the Red and XVhite teams automatically became the Varsity. Those
on the Varsity are: Virginia Hamblin, Edith Everett, Lois Redmun, Virginia White, Barbara
Sinclair, Margery Hammond, Constance Bearce, Elinor Flagg, Gwendolyn Wilson, Mildred
Matthews, Jean Myrand, Eleanor Hobbs, Shirley Sampson, Alice Koss, Sally Rubinoif,
Marjorie Cox, and Theodora Rizoulis.
This ear swimmin was not conducted as a com etitive s ort because the cost was too hi h.

Any girl who wished could pay the regular price and swim at the time scheduled for high school
students, but no teams were chosen.
Hiking is a sport of two seasons: spring and fall. It is not possible to give letters, but the
girls have good times going on hikes to definite destinations, sometimes taking lunches.
Tennis practice was held in the gymnasium in the fall, and also in the spring. A
Volley ball and baseball were the sports planned for the early part of May.
At the close of the year a banquet was held for the members of the Girls' Athletic Associa-
tion. Since this was the last time during the school year that the girls were to be all together,
the opportunity was taken to award letters to those who had earned them.
Much credit should be given to Miss Doris Fitz, who tool: Miss Catherine Blagden's place
at midyears as faculty adviser. She put several new ideas into effect which have proved valuable.

Doors of llpportunity
How often do we fail to recognize the doors of opportunity when we see them! They open
every day, inviting us in so many unpretentious ways. So many opportunities present them-
selves every day in our social life, and in our school life.
Opportunities of life begin when we are small children and at that time we take advantage
of them without realizing it. We learn to play the games of youth which often require some
skill in balance, or limber grace. As we become fascinated with some one skill, we realize that
it may be valuable to us in later life.
When we reach grammar school age, more opportunities slip quietly into our lives in the
manner of special subjects and school activities. We discover that wood-carving, mathematics,
or sewing interests us. We may be inclined toward study as we discover our well-developed
intellectual curiosity. We are beginning to consider plans for our life work.
Next comes our high school career when opportunities come in a rush. We have the chance
to discover our skill as actors, athletes, debaters, business executives, scientists or painters. Our
school and social life develops our character, giving us poise and tolerance. The door to happi-
ness is flung wide open, we need only to don our "good mixer" cloak to walk right in.
Then graduation draws near, and we must decide upon our life work. We wander about
peering into the doors of opportunity-little doors, big doors-nearly always we find them open
and inviting. Thus, even though many doors of opportunity in Auburn appear today to be
closed and padlocked, we are still determined to fulfill our hopes in spite of the discouraging
Keys, Doors, and Seniors
Commencement opens the door to our careers as we conclude our secondary education. It is
for us, therefore, to convince the citizens of Auburn of the merits of our schooling. The value
of an education is incalculable in dollars and cents. The student must struggle continually, and
parents and friends must sacrifice many things so that the student may receive his diploma and
reach his goal in life. Even to those of us who have taken the minimum interest in studies and
school activities, these four years have not been valueless. Someone has said that true education
is what the student has left after he has forgotten what he has learned. The cost to the com-
munity in financial support establishes for us a great debt to society. Indirectly the whole nation
has contributed toward our education. Therefore our duty and obligation should be to repay in
service to America the sacrince and devotion our education has occasioned.
In this, the largest class ever to be graduated from Edward Little, the youth of America is
amply portrayed, we are a cross-section of it. Each of us has some particular talent, some ability
or aptitude, some special pattern to carry out in the scheme of life. Our implicit duty is to find
this niche and to adapt ourselves to life and to the world, for we are citizens of the great human
family and the world is our abode. We must apply in our lives all we have been taught about
tolerance, virtue, and peace. In the final appraisal of our education, it may be said that each
one has received in return, just as much as he has contributed.
We stand on the threshold of the future. The portals of new experiences and myriad new
adventures have been opened to us. Some of us will blaze new trails, explore new fields of
experience, others will tread the well-beaten highways, pursue the well-established, time-tested
vocations to discover new values and principles. Our Alma Mater has nurtured our self-reliance
-the master key to the door of self-expression. Therefore, we are well equipped to march in
the parade of progress. Throughout our lives, a great chain of doors has been unlocked to us.
All our units of study have served as keys to practical knowledge and understanding. Moreover,
we have a compass to guide us morally, mentally, and spiritually, it is formed, point for point,
by the lines of various philosophers, writers, and teachers-exemplars, whose careers and
achievements we have studied.

We are going to learn many lessons nat taught us in the classroom. Purposely or sub-
consciously we will go on, absorbing lessons and amassing stores of wisdom, whether or not Your
formal education continues. Thus schooling is but a rudiment of education-as we shall
The gates of the past are closed forever behind usg the future is our concern. With the
theory that the world owes us a living, belongs the corollary that everyone must prepare himself
to claim the living which life owes him. Everywhere there is a demand for well-trained, efficient
persons to do the work of the world and to advance civilization. Let us remember that "great-
ness lies in service." Assuredly there is a greater call for service than ever before. We alone are
responsible for our future, we are the architects of our own career. "Success," as we have been
taught, "is oft but perseverence in disguise." Therefore, the possessor of a diploma from
Edward Little may well claim a larger share of the world's bounty. We are a group of pioneers
in a new and enlightened age. We must begin to set our own values and formulate our own
ideals and standards of life. We shall encounter difficulties and struggles, but the inspiration of
great personalities of the past will strengthen our hearts, and give us the stamina to conquer.
Money or fame must not be the lodestar of our eficortg for, if it were, we should find that
money would control us instead of our possessing the wealth. The prospects before us are inspir-
ingg we are living in a land of democracy and advanced civilization. Let us make the world
even better than we now find it. The accomplishments of our predecessors all over the world
should serve as a buttress to our aspirations.
Here, then, are the two Golden Keys of Success: "You can, if you think you can," and
"As you sow, so shall you also reap."
The Doors of Edward Little
One friendly door serene and kind
Warns us each day to bear in mind,
"Be studious, not too much fun,
The time speeds by, work must be done.
On what you learn in high school years
Depends success in life, my dearsf'
A jolly door is near the gym,
And beckons us to hasten in
To watch the games and join the fun,
And cheer our team when it has won,
To meet and greet our friends so gay,
We wish these days with us might stay.
A door stands high on time-worn stairs,
And looks up toward the name it bears
With pride and love. Bids each adieu,
Tells each, "Success is up to you.
W'ork hard, don't shirk, hold high your chin,
Be sure you're right, then hght to winf'
In three short years these doors have grown
Like some dear friends we all have known,
To guide our steps which way to go,
To share each joy, to ease each woe.
I'm sure no words could ever tell
The debt we owe to dear E. L.

Students, pause awhile to hear
This truth and good adviceg
I am a manuwell on in years,
And wisdom rules my life.
You've realized now, or long before,
What education means,
'T is like a key that frees the door
To priceless joys supreme,
'T is like the track that guides the train
Of thoughts that you possess
Away from all things vile and vain
To Station Happiness,
'T is like the lamp that lights the way
Along the rutted path,
That keeps you clear of swamp and clay
But gets you there at last.
In famous structures you have been,
You've noticed all the doors
That bear the names of worthy men-
They studied years or more.
And then there are a number large
Of doors less apt to boast,
They're barroom doors and doors of bars
From them stay clear the most.
Now let me leave you this one thought,
,T will help you evermore:
To know your goal is seldom got,
Till countless failures score,
So push right on in spite of strife,
Each conquered failure adds
A higher value to your life
That kings would die to have.
If you find yourself entangled
In this life of rush and tearg
If your brain is in a muddle
And won't get you anywhere,
Here is something that will help you
Ease the pressure on your mind
Here is something very simple
Which takes little of your time.
First you get a sheet of paper,
Then you take a trusty peng
Then you start as in a letter
With these soothing words, "Dear Friend
Now you write down all your troubles
Keeping not a thing behind
Tell him all about your struggles
Getting them all off your mind.
After telling of your future,
Of your hopes and plans to be,
You will notice with great pleasure
Things are clearing up, you seeg
Now you read what you have written
just as though you were the friendg
You will nnd much trouble hidden
It is smaller now than then.
What you thought was something useless
Clears itself before your eyesg
What you felt to do was fruitless
Can be done now, if you try.
Give me, then, your true opiniong
Don't you think this thought
That your best friend in a million
Is no other one but you?

My First Shave
When but a lad, I always thought
What fun it was to shave a lot,
just like my father did each morn
With shiny razor keen and longg
Then came that grand and gloriou
When I found hair to shave away
I jumped and cried, "Oh, mother dear,
Please come to see what I have hereg
See all the fuzz beneath my nose
No, that's not dirt, that's hair by Joveg
Oh! Boy! I'm gonna shave right now
Before it grows back in somehowgn
I found my father's shaving cream
But, gosh, I started wrong, it seemsg
I squeezed a half a tube too much
And tried to put it back,-no luckg
Then when I lathered up my face,
It spread all over to my waist,
It covered up my mouth and eyes
And muffled all my shrieks and criesg
Page One Hundred Thirty-eight
I walked around to find the cloth
To wipe those sticky suds all off
But I got lost and struck a door
Right on my head, Boy! how I sworeg
To make things worse or just for spite,
I stepped on soap and slipped just right,
I hit the tub with all my might
And fell right in clear out of sightg
The water rose with a splashing sound
Oh gracious me! I almost drowned,
Then, taking up again my task
I worked the razor fine at last,
I had some trouble with my gills
My Adam's apple would not stay still
That's nearly gone I hate to say,
I didn't need it, anyway.
My luck was better with my ear
I've still got half of it right here.
No more I'll praise those slaves who shave,
I know the strain they bearg
I'll pray and say to them "Be brave
Till you run out of hair."
