The class of 1940 began its career at Edward Little with the distinction of being the largest sophomore class ever to enter its doors. At the beginning of the year, Martha Allen, Clair Chesley, Lawrence Packard, and Phyllis Tolman were elected to the Student Council. Joan Hammond was elected class president, and David Andrews, vice-president. Athanasia Rizoulis, Joan Hammond, and Lincoln Robinson were chosen to serve on the Assembly Board. The first social event of the year was the sophomore reception which was held in early October. The newlyfelected sophomore class president replied to the welcome of the senior class president, the president of the Student Council outlined the various school activities. Sophomores elected to the Library Proctors' Club were Robert Beaudry, Clair Chesley, Donald Day, Joan Hammond, Adalia Nauyokas, and Athanasia Rizoulis. Only two members of the class made the debating team. They were Robert Beaudry and Lincoln Robinson. From a group of sophomores trying out for "The Station", Margaret Chase, Clair Chesley, Richard Desjardins, Caroline Gray, Joan Hammond, Alice Marcoux, Athanf asia Rizoulis, Marcia Rubinoif, and Velma Sylvester were selected as reporters. After a brief summer vacation, the fullffledged juniors elected Martha Allen, Robert Beaudry, Margaret Chase, joan Hammond, Sam Illingworth, Nelda Millett, Marcia Rollins, and Gwendolyn Wilson to serve on the Student Council. Barbara Boothby, Donald Day, and Joan Hammond were elected as members of the Assembly Board. When the results of the class election were learned, it was found that Clair Chesley was president, and Robert Beaudry, vicefpresident. Following the precedent established by the class of '39, the junior Ring Committee, composed of Robert Beaudry, Elizabeth Clough, and Marcia Rollins, selected a stone ring. The junior Dramatic Club, headed by Nikolas Naum, Marcia Rollins, and Arlene Hutchinson, presented several plays under the direction of Miss Morin. The junior class was represented on the debating team by Donald Day, Robert Beaudry, and Albert Crockett. At midfyear the following were elected into the Library Proctors' Club: Robert Eveleth, Grace Cole, Elizabeth Clough, Richard Murphy, Barbara Boothby, Alice Marcoux, and Marion Hatch. The new "Station" staff was headed by Velma Sylvester, editor, Margaret Chase and joan Hammond, associate editors, Donald Day, managing editor, and Donald Fraser, business manager. The social events of the year were brought to a close with the annual juniorfSenior Promenade. 82 After a much welcomed vacation, the class of 1940 returned as seniors, and elected Clair Chesley and Robert Beaudry as president and vicefpresident respectively. The class chose the following as its final representatives to the Student Council: Barbara Boothby, William Cullen, Donald Fraser, Arlene Hutchinson, Marcia Rollins, and Gwendolyn Wilson. William Cullen was elected president, Donald Fraser, vice' president, Marcia Rollins, secretaryftreasurer. Donald Day was elected president of the "Thespians". The enrollment of this year's club differed from that of previous years in that the membership consisted of both seniors and juniors. Other oilicers were Russell Pelletier, vicefpresidentg and Catherine Naum, secretaryftreasurer. m joan Hammond, on the basis of her last year'S performance, was elected to serve on the Assembly Board with Barbara Boothby, Penley Stephens, and Athanasia Rizoulis. The goal of the Assembly Board was to install a talking movie projector. This prof jector has already proved its worth. The class chose the following as members of the executive committee for graduaf tion: Robert Eveleth, Baccalaureate, Lawrence Packard, Graduation, Alma Titus, Banquet, Robinetta Titus, Courtesy, Richard Paige, Receptiong Donald Skinner, Class Dayg William Cullen, Dress. One of the outstanding achievements of the year was the production by the "Thespians" of "The Singapore Spider" which reached the state finals at Bowdoin. April 11 and 12, the class of '40 successfully presented the senior drama H320 College Avenue". When the honor parts were announced, Margaret Chase was found to be the valedictorian. Others with ranks of ninety or over were, in order Joan Hammond, Elizabeth Clough, Erle Huse, Gladys Cole, Albert Crockett, Eleanor Faber, Barbara Boothby, Donald Day, Marcia Rubinoff, Martha Allen, Athanasia Rizoulis, Delillus Crockett, Velma Sylvester. One of the last activities of the year was Baccalaureate at which we were very fortunate in having the Reverend john Connolley of Hebron as the speaker. Apart from tradition, this year's senior class chose to present a play at graduation instead of the customary orations. The play, "Back to Adam", is in three episodes, and deals with the rebellion of the successive generations against their parents. Margaret Chase, valedictorian, gave the welcome and the class farewell. Aside from the honor parts, the cast was chosen by tryouts. 1820 Sir jasper Mallory DAVID ANDREWS Lady Mallory ATHANASIA RIZOULIS Rupert Mallory THOMAS MCCARTHY Clarissa Mallory JEAN CHILDS 1886 Sir William Mallory PENLEY STEPHENS Richard Mallory ERLE HUSE Charlotte Mallory JOAN HAMMOND Angela Traherne ELIZABETH CLOUGH 1940 Sir Arthur Mallory Bertram Mallory Lady Mallory QPhyll Constance Hill isj 83 RUSSELL PELLETIER DONALD DAY MARCIA ROLLINS BARBARA BOOTHBY CLASS ODE TUNE: "Ahide With Me" The portal doors have slowly opened wideg On fleet, white wings Time passed us in its stride. Through portal doors we all must slowly march, With heads held high, and silent tears aflow. Carefully and yet tenderly our name Is written on your halls of wondrous fame. Deep in our souls lie your sweet memories, Cherished in deepest thoughts of happiness. Today we bid farewell with leaden hearts, As from our loved friends we must depart. Outside the gates we look back just once more, And through a teary mist bid our farewell. GENEVIEVE SNOW I SUPERMEN 1.

After a few weeks, the newcomers established themselves and settled down to the regular routine. The Student Council representatives of the class were Bertrand Boucher, Olive Cook, Michael DiRenzo, Louise Kerr, Barbara Millett, Fred Rand, and Georganne Sputar. At the first class meeting, Edmund Capano was elected president, and Therna Sturgis, vicefpresident. The "Station" chose as reporters Georganne Soutar, Peggy Newton, Mary Booth, Monica Daunis, Mary Knights, Barbara Prescott, Barbara Smith, Stanley White, Willard Munroe, Marion Estes, and Bebe Tuttle. After the Christmas vacation, Louise Kerr, Barbara Barron, Barkley Goodrich, Mike DiRenzo, and Robert Miller were elected to the Library Proctors' Club. Summer vacation passed all too quickly, and when the class returned as juniors, it refelected Edmund Capano, president, and Therna Sturgis, vicefpresident. For the second successive year, Betty Wood, Doris Simard, and Barkley Goodrich served on the Assembly Board. Barbara Smith, Ernest Kelly, Georganne Soutar, Barkley Goodrich, Barbara Millett, and john Briggs were chosen as members of the Student Council. Following the precedent established by the classes of '39 and '40, the Ring Com' mittee, consisting of Peggy Newton, Monica Daunis, and Harold Curtis, selected a stone ring. As the junior and senior dramatic clubs were discontinued, the "Thespians", a club consisting of both classes, was formed. At the tryouts, Catherine Naum, Barkley Goodrich, Betty Wood, Alfred Payne, Mike DiRenzo, Eleanor Baker, Collette Char' ron, Harold Curtis, and Paul Thurlow were chosen as members from the junior class. The "Station" staff is now headed by Willard Munroe, editorg Peggy Newton and Barbara Smith, associate editors, and Stanley White, business manager. The year closed happily with the members of the class looking forward to the fall when they will return to E. L. as seniors. 93 E. L. I-I. S. SONG There's a school that is dear to the hearts of allg 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. CHORUS 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 you'll know for his might, he has searched aright, In the school that was grandest and best. Words and Music by GEORGE A.

The path stretched before us is beckoning now, And we'll reach our goal, though we know not how, But we'll travel life's trail throughout each long year With thoughts in our hearts for the joy we found here. As treading life's pathway, we turn to look back, In the dimness we'll see, down the long, narrow track, E. L. in its glory, the place that we love, With light shining on it from heaven above. Goodbye, Edward Little, and dear teachers all. For this class of 'forty has now heard its callg But we know in the end all our glory and fame Will be a reflection upon your good name.

The outstanding football player of the year was Wilfred Fournier. The Band, Orchestra, and Glee Club, under the supervision of Mr. Russell jack, made fine progress during the past year. It is the wish of the student body to improve the music during the coming years as much as it has improved the past year, On April 17 three onefact plays were presented before the public. Those in the ninth grade taking part were Anita Bellevance, Marilyn Cook, Margaret Levasseur, Harriette Libby, and Horace Libby. The annual class party took place on May 17.

This year's ninth grade was continually busy in school work, athletics, assemblies, newspaper work, and social activities. To the Staff of the "Webster News", the school newspaper, the following freshmen were appointed: Charles Wilner, Marjory Ford, Marjory Millett, Jouet Richan, Prescott Kenber, Marjorie Dutton, David Haskell, jean Jacobs, Robert Snow, Mary Turgeon, Sally White, and Raymond Davis. The Junior HifY, with David Chase as president, sponsored two successful dances: one to benent its own club, and the other to help the "Webster News." Ernest Glover and Edward Lambert were two prominent freshmen who won their high school letters in swimming. The outstanding social event of the year was the annual class party held in the Webster auditorium February 2. Freshmen on the various committees were jane Robertson, Virginia Huntley, Hugh Doten, Shirley Cushman, and Rita Carey. The Variety Show which Webster gave as a means of contributing to the needy fund netted 35140, more than any other school in Auburn. The band and orchestra, plays, singing, tap dancing, baton twirling comprised the program for the Variety Show. , The spring term passed very quickly, and graduation found the class of '43 sorry to bid farewell to Webster, yet at the same time looking forward with anticipation to its sophomore year at Edward Little.

This organization, which meets regularly with Principal Turner to discuss and deal with the problems and affairs that arise within the school, is made up of representatives from each of the home rooms. In its meetings, the council considers all matters perf taining to the best interests of the school, including the promotion of dances and other extrafcurricular events. In the fall, for the last four years, the council has sponsored a reception to the incoming sophomores. At this informal party, where the council members served as ushers and waitresses, the students and their parents were presented to the members of the faculty. This year, during the Curtis Publishing Company campaign which the Assembly Board sponsored, the Student Council members aided by taking charge of the daily reports in the various home rooms. The point system, that was supposed to have gone into effect last fall, was discussed a great deal, and will be presented before the student body next fall for its approval. The oflicers of the council were president, William Culleng vicefpresident, Donald Fraser, secretaryftreasurer, Marcia Rollins. 110 Front Row: Ruth McKenney, Marcia Rollins, Margaret Chase, Velma Sylvester, Robert Beaudry, Donald lfrascr, jean Childs, Ralph Bean.

This year, work on the "Oracle" lwegan in December with the awarding of a conf tract for photography to Loring's Studio. Next the theme, 'lLight", was chosen, The art committee was then able to begin the work of illustrating the various departments. Since the class voted for personals, a special committee early in March undertook the tremendous task of writing them. The humor department was in charge of Howard ,lordan and Phyllis Miller, who have striven for originality of arrangement. The group activities were written hy representatives from the different clulws. The typing, under the direction of Theresa Dufresne, was of the highest caliher. This made prooffreading much easier, and enahled the staff to send the material to Merrill Welwher Company, the printers, earlier than the schedule demanded. Since each staff tries to add some new feature to the yearhook, we in turn have introduced informal group pictures, a new cover design, and a new makefup. We wish to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to Mrs. Kennedy, Mr. Chandler, Miss Moore, and Miss Coan for their untiring aid and cofoperation in the production of the "Oracle", STAFF EditorfinfChiet'- Roisiiair BEAUDRY Managing Editoi-fVifLMA SYLVESTER CofBusiness Managers 'M.'XRfi.KRET Cnase, DoN.ixLD FRASER Head Typist- THERESA DuFREsNE Chairman of the Personalsf-GRACE COLE 111 ff -' 1 .

ASSEMBLY BOARD The Assembly Board has had a busy and successful year raising money for a movf ing picture sound projector and screen. Since about half the needed amount was subscribed by last year's club, the new board had to find ways and means for completing the fund. Their first project was the sponsoring of the annual Armistice Day Football Dance. Later, the board arranged a very interesting basketball game between the Thornton and Edward Little faculties. The Edward Little stickers were again sold this year. But the most sucf cessful scheme was the introduction of the Curtis Publishing Company Plan. This campaign was under the combined auspices of the Assembly Board and Student Counf cil. Practically every student sold subscriptions to many of the most popular magazines of the country. The results of the sale were so successful that the Assembly Board was able to purchase a projector soon after the Christmas vacation. The aim of this organization is to arrange and prepare worthwhile assembly prof grams. This year the programs have included moving pictures, lectures, plays by the "Thespians", rallies, and a talent show. The officers are president, Athanasia Rizoulisg vicefpresident, Barkley Coodrichg secretaryftreasurer, Roselyn Mower. Miss Christine Norwood is faculty adviser, and all chairmen of the various assemf blies are directly responsible to her. 112 Front Row: Donald Fraser, Robert Beaudry, Velma Sylvester, Alice Marcoux, Margaret Chase, -loan Hammond, Athanasia Rizoulis, Clair Chesley, Donald Day.

A new column dealing with the hobbies of Edward Little students was inauguratedg also, news from "exchange" papers occupied a more prominent place than it had previously. The staff conducted a poll of student opinion, which decided the entrance into the Columbia Contest. After the students understood that a "gossip" column would detract from the credits of a paper in the contest, they voted, at the same poll, not to introduce one. The contest is sponsored annually by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. The "Station E. L. H. S." received third rating. The editorials this past year covered many diiferent subjects, and were written from entirely diiferent viewpoints. This was due largely to the fact that the two assistant editors, besides the editorfinfchief, wrote editorials for each issue. The "Student Mike" has increased in popularity, and the letters voicing the quandaries of new students have proved especially enlightening to the staff. Velma Sylvester headed the "Station" as editorfinfchief, Margaret Chase and joan Hammond were associate editors, and Donald Day was managing editor. Miss Ethel Saunders served as faculty adviser. 113 Front Row: Adalia Nauyokas, Arlene Hutchinson, Betty Wood, joan Hammond, Aletha Meade, Colette Charron, Athanasia Rizoulis, Catherine Naum, Donald Day, Russell Pelletier.

THE THESPIANS E Preparation for the task of inaugurating the 193940 dramatic season at Edward Little hcgan early in Octoher with tryouts for a comhined -IuniorfSenior eluh. The iinal organization, consisting of twentyfthree seniors and nine juniors, selected the appropriate name of the "Thespians" for the eluh title and elected the following otlicers: president, Donald Day: vicefpresident, Russell Pelletier: secretaryftreasurer, Catherine Naum. The cluh chose for its first production a onefact comedy "The Telegram", which was ahly coached hy Miss Coan, the faculty adviser. Donald Day, Marcia Ruhinoif, Eleanor Baker, Elizaheth Clough, and Russell Pelletier were represented in the cast. For the annual Christmas play, to he presented hefore the entire student hody in assemhly, the "Thespians" staged a onefact drama entitled "Is This the Child?" In the cast were Elizaheth Clough, David Andrews, Avis Wiliie1', Penley Stephens, Nick Naum, ,Ioan Hammond, Edith Could, Barkley Goodrich, and Richard Paige. The high spot of the dramatic year, however, was the production of "The Singapore Spider", a thriller hy Edward Finnegan. This play, hy tar the hardest attempted hy the E. L. dramatists this year, included in the cast David Andrews, Donald Day, Elizaheth Clough, Russell Pelletier, and Arlene Hutchinson. The "Tliespians" entered the "Spider" in the State OnefAct Play Contest and, much to the amazement of all, the play swept through the preliminary and semiffinal contests. However, the group lost in the iinals at Bowdoin College. 114 Front Row: Rosamond Hammond, Mildred Rosen, Mr. Vxfesterberg, Oswyn Hammond, Barbara Boothhy. Back Row: Irma Miller, Dorothy Strout.

DEBATING CLUB The dehating season opened with Edward Little capahly represented in the Bow' doin League hy Rohert Beaudry and Donald Day. The start of the Bates League season uncovered evidence of increased interest in this activity among the sophomores, with nine of them reporting to augment the three returning seniors. At an early meeting, Rohert Beaudry and Donald Day were elected president and vicefpresident respectively of the local chapter of the National Forensic League. For the first three weeks, the cluh participated in practice tournaments at Lewiston, Portland, and Vxfinslow High Schools, where they gained needed experience and their share of victories. Between these tournaments and the Bates League competition, practice dehates were held with Maine Central Institute at Pittsfield, with Leavitt Institute at Turner, and with Colehrook Academy, the New Hampshire scholastic champions, in Auburn. In the preliminary round of the Bates League, the Edward Little allirmative team defeated the Stephens High negative teamg and the Edward Little negative team sucf cumhed to the Lewiston aihrmative. Edward Little was eliminated, however, on the total numher of judges' votes. As the last activity of the year, the teams traveled to Lisbon Falls to participate in a program for a meeting of the Pomona Grange. At the end of the year, Mr. Westei'herg presented National Forensic League memhership certificates and degrees, and Bates League certiiicates. The season closed with the present sophomores promf ising continued success for the club. 115 Front Row: B. Boothhy, Hammond, M. Tarr, A. Meade, E. Clough, E. Gould, M. Rollins, E. Marsden.

The judges were faculty memhers. H320 College Avenue", a three act comedy, was written hy Fred Ballard and Mignon C. Eherhart. The plot concerns the unraveling of a murder tangle in which a group of college students find themselves involved. Complications arise with the arrival of the Chief and joe, a pair of "hick detectives", who add to the general hysteria of the party. Not until the end of the third act is the murderer apprehended, and peace restored. The play calls for an unusually large cast. Those awarded parts were Elizaheth Clough, Ralph Could, Aletha Meade, Camille Gardner, Adalia Nau- yokas, Robert Desjardins, Edith Gould, Penley Stephens, Donald Day, Priscilla Stewart, Joan Hammond, jacoh Davidson, Marcia Rollins, Ralph Taylor, Russell Pelletier, Barhara Boothhy, Lawrence Packard, Evelyn Marsden, Thomas McCarthy, Marjory Tarr, Erle Huse, David Andrews, Ralph Bean, and William Cullen.

Various entertainments planned hy the program committee were presentedg among these were a spelling hee in which everyone participated, and a description of life at Bates College hy Edward Booth, a student there. lvlemhcrs of the Latin Cfluh also enjoyed a Christmas party at which homefmade cards were ex changed. Each year twelve sophomores are granted the privilege of joining the Latin Cluh, Their initiation this year provided a great deal ol' amusement, for everyone danced, sang, and recited nursery rhymes and tongue twisters. In previous years, cluh meetings were not held regularly. This year, however, it was suggested that a certain date he set for the meetings, and it was voted that they he held the second and fourth Monday of each month.

LIBFQARY PVQOCTORS' CLUB In 1930 with the huilding of the annex which included a wellfequipped lihrary, a group of seniors under the supervision of Miss Edna Corntorth and Principal L. E. Moulton organized the Lihrary Proctors' Clulw. The purpose of the cluh was to keep order in the lihrary, to care for the hooks and magazines, and to aid the students. Since the founding of the clulv, the constitution has lween amended several times as need has arisen. The qualifications for meinhership are recommendation from the English teachers, and suitahle study periods for duty in the lihrary. From the names of those students suhmitted as eligihle to the cluh, live juniors and three sophomores are chosen. Election takes place in the fall, and the mcmhers remain in the cluh until they are graduated from high school. Mcmhership is limited to twenty. Sophomores are required to include in their English course a unit in lihrary work, acquainting them with the lihrary and its methods. The 1940 executive committee was composed of Rohert Beaudry, chairman, Bar- hara Boothhy, Joan Hammond, Athanasia Rizoulis, Louise Kerr, and Barkley Goodrich. The ofhcers are president, Clair Chesleyg viccfpresidcnt, Roliert Beaudryg secretary' treasurer, Barhara Boothhy. Mrs. Elizabeth Bowen is faculty adviser. 118 Front Row: Deane Sturgis.

I-II-Y The Edward Little HifY Club resumed operations in September under the leader' ship ot the new oflicers who are president, Robert Beaudry: vicefpresident, Clair Chesleyg secretaryftreasurer, Lawrence Packard. Because of the small membership carried over from last year, the club has many underelassmen on its roster. Since Mr. Anderson, former adviser to the club, was overfburdened with other duties at the "Y", the HifY adopted the policy of having a faculty representative, Mr. john Messina. Mr. Messina has brought to the club many new ideas which will be more evident as time goes on. The HifY, with the Junior Red Cross, sponsored a benefit danee to send a Junior Red Cross representative to Wasliingtoii. The HifY has been very busy within its own circle. Ronald Hartin represented the group at a conclave held at Brunswick High School during Cctober. Because the dates conflicted with the Winter Carnival, the Hi-Y was unable to send delegates to the state assembly in Camden. The boys decided to hold meetings once a week instead of twice a month as heretofore. 119 Mr. jack, the Instructor.

Cl-ICDRUS This year those students who were interested in singing formed a chorus under the direction oi Mr, Russell Jack, Supervisor of Music in the Auhurn Schools. This group, made up entirely of girls, replaced the Clee Cluh of former years. About twent , forthe most art iuniors and seniors enrolled as memhers. This fear, for the Y . . -' . ' 5 first time, singing classes were held during school hours. Inasmuch as the chorus was ahle to hold its meetin s live times a week it made considerahle wrorress. a l L In Eehruary, an operetta, entitled 'iThe Prince and the Cofedn, was presented by the chorus. Several memhers had leading roles, among them Erma Rowe, Constance Ham, and Marjorie Tarr. Others formed, with a selected group of students, an eihcient chorus which made an effective hackground for the operetta. This was the Hrst time the entire chorus had appeared hefore an audience, and it gave a very commendahle performance. Next year Mr. jack wishes to form an a cappella choir of ahout sixty mixed voices which will he trained to sing at the haccalaureate and graduation exercises. 120 Front Row: Richard Paige, Rohert Rankin, Gwendolyn Wilson, Barhara Boothhy, Alyce Fletcher, Bette Marhle, Lillian Shaw, Avis Wilner, Dorothy Strout, Nickolas Naum, john Ault.

SCIENCE CLUB Since the beginning of the school year, the Science Club has held its meetings every other Wednesday under the capable supervision of M1'. Lind, the faculty adviser. This club, which originated in 1936, oifers opportunity to students interested in physics, chemistry, or biology to work on experiments in which they are interested One is also able at this time to discuss thoroughly any subject which he did not under' stand in class. In March, the club decided to hold additional informal meetings every Tuesday and Thursday. Mr. Lind is present on these occasions for the benefit of those memf bers who might wish to prepare projects for the exhibit to be held sometime next fall. At a previous meeting, the club was privileged to hear a speaker from Bates Col' lege, who gave a very interesting talk on biology. This discourse proved to be helpful in giving many novel ideas for the coming exhibit. Differing from the other organizations of Edward Little, the Science Club elects a group of officers not only in September, but also in February. The oiiicers for the first semester were president, Williiiiii Rigbyg viccfpresident, Robert Millcrg sccretaryf treasurer, Lorraine Stockbridge. 122 Front Row: E. Smart, R, Piselli, C.

CDRCI-I ESTRA Although the orchestra receives much less attention than does the hand, this organization should he given credit for the time and effort it has put into its work throughout the past year. During the fourth period on Mondays and Wediiesf days, the memhers have faithfully rehearsed compositions of various types that afford each instrument the opportunity of playing a solo at one time or another. The orchestra was not so large as it has heen formerly hecause it had a relatively small string section. Bands have heen spotlighted so much recently that heginners in music naturally want to play hand instrumentsg hence, there is a decrease in the number who wish to study stringed instruments. The small orchestra had its advantages, however, for occasionally different memhcrs were given a chance to direct, and thus gained ex' pericnec they would not get in a hand. Despite various handicaps, the orchestra played well for the operctta, "The Count and CofEd" which was presented hy Edward Little students on Fehruary 14 and 15. At their second puhlic appearance, the orchestra played a few selections preceding the lecture on Finland given on March ZS hy Colonel Cooper. In April, the orchestra furnished music for the annual senior drama. 123 n , 'img 325 org "'C..U .335 U-15138 -6 -Aa :CLD 2 ,. .3Q :Lui 3952 CD23 -. 3 .c 229 ELI U25 . Q .. -.. Emi : . 'JM .

D6 ui TI-IE BAND This year the Edward Little band is still the largest in the history of the school, with its membership increased to eightyfeight. For parade and drilling purposes, how' ever, the unit is cut down to seventyftwo, since six Hles and twelve ranks make a suit' able marching group. Soon after school opened for tlxe fall term, the parents of the members of the band reorganized their club in order to formulate ways and means of raising money for new uniforms, for instruments, and for the purpose of sending the organization to the Western Maine Music Festival, held at Waterville, and to the New England Festival at Lawrence, Massachusetts. Events sponsored to raise funds for these worthy enter' prises were an operetta-which this year replaced the minstrel showfprivate bridge parties, the annual band concert, and a lecture by Colonel Edward H. Cooper. Wheii Major Morin began to train the group in the fall, he thought it would aid the band in making its formation if a few girls from his Golden Arrows drill team came out and marched too. This idea worked out so well that the six girls became an integral part of the unit, marching in front of the band in all parades, in their white' andfgold uniforms. Thanks to Major Morin and Mr. jack, the organization is well on the way to be' coming one of New England's highestfranking high school bands. 4 . Hbr!9A...A.. x Our Band spelling out "E.

ATHLETIC COUNCIL Each year the Athletic Council is chosen for the purpose of supervising and solving the financial problems that may confront the various sports during the year. The council consists of a faculty adviser, the coaches, and a student representative from each athletic activity. As its principal duties, this organization manages the financial affairs of each team, oversees the purchasing of equipment, and awards letters to worthy athletes. The following boys were elected to this year's council: Robert Beaudry, football: Erle Huse, basketball: Clair Chesley, winter sportsg Raymond Mills, swimming, Don' ald Skinner, trackg and Edmund Dubois, baseball. The advisory board is composed of Mr. Westerberg, representing the facultyg Coaches Fisher, Brogan, Dvvelley, Akerley, Messinag Mr. Chesley and Mr. Moulton, members of the school board, and Principal Turner. 128 Front Row: French, B.

In the class meet, the juniors set the pace for the various teams, with the seniors nnishing second, and the sophomores third. The following week the Ghosts comlwined forces to eke out a victory over the Alumni by .5 of a point. In a trifmeet held at Lewiston, the Eddies lost a close one to Romford with Lewiston taking third. Combating Hebron in a duofweekly meet Qthat is, the events were held on two sepf arate weekfendsj, the Red Eds were finally edged out. The next week-end found the Ghosts at Romford where they lost to the home team. At last the Eddies came out of their slump, trouncing the Bates Freshmen from across the river. This year the State Meet was held in the Eddies' own back yard as part of the Wiriter Carnival. The Eds took top honors, thus avenging their previous defeat Ivy Rumford which took second place. Edward Little wound up the season at Andover by winning the New England Interscholastic Skiing Championships for the third consecutive year, thus retaining the cup. i On the same weekfend, the remainder of the team went to Caribou, where they took third in a state meet. 129 Iiront Row: E.

FOOTBALL Witli the Edward Little 1939 llootliall season opening, Head Coach jackie Fisher was faced with the fact that only four lettermen were returning from the preceding season. lvlany new acquaintances were made during the first liew days of practice. and among these was John lvlessina who replaced Assistant Coach Alexander. Mr. Messina came to Edward Little as a graduate of Rhode lslaiid State College, where he made an outstanding record in foothall, hasketlwall, and hasehall. In the opening game of the season, a green Eddie team upset a veteran Vxfestlirook eleven to the tune of 716. Francis Parker, stalwart Edward Little end, caught a pass over the goal line in the closing minutes of the second period, and then proceeded to kick the extra point. This proved to he the telling point, as Vifesthrook scored in the fourth period, hut its lioot for the 'kextral' was hlocked. Appearing at home for the first time, the Eddies romped to a 7fO victory over the Hehron Reserves. The score surmises a close liattleg hut statistics show that the home team had things their own way most of the afternoon, as Hehron failed to make a first down. The next Saturday found the Red Ghosts encountering Lewiston, their traditional rivals. The veteran eleven from across the river proved too much for the Eddies, and smothered them hy a score of 'l7fO. -Iouriieyiiig to Portland the following week, the Red Eds held a strong Portland team to a 120 victory. Several times thc Auhurnites were down near the Portland goal line, hut they failed to put over a score. 130 The next week Edward Little played Deering in a night game, a new experience for the Auburnites. Completely befuddling the Ghosts, the Deering lads went home with a 12fO win tucked under their belts. The following Saturday, the Eddies met defeat again. This time it was at the hands of Biddeford, who were victorious by a 19fO score. In the next game, in spite of mud and rain, the Ghosts surprised experts by holding a powerful Thornton eleven to a 19f7 victory. The bright spot of the day came in the fourth period when Parker took a pass from Dutton and plodded through the murky sea sixty yards for a touchdown. Thc Eddies journeyed to South Portland for the next to the last game of the season. Although Ridley scored for the visitors in the third period, the Capers set too fast a pace for the Auburn team and came out on the long end of a 25f6 decision. In the final game of the year, the Eddies met an undefeated Lewiston eleven. The Ghosts entered the game as predicted underdogs by several touchdowns, however, they fought so hard that it was not until the fourth quarter that the Blue Streaks were able to score. Ralph Ridley's running and Frankie Donnell's spectacular kicking greatly helped the Red Eds to hold their rivals to a 12fO win. Francis Parker, who played fine ball for the Eddies this year, was given honorable mention on the All-Maine team. Though the season was not a very successful one, the fact remains that fourteen lettermen are coming back next yearg and with this in mind Edward Little's future, so far as football is concerned, looks a great deal brighter.

BASKETBALL Witli Hachey and Huse the only lettermen returning from the previous year, Coach jackie Fisher had his work cut out for him hefore the haskethall season started. After a few weeks of practice, he found a clicking comhination in Dillenzo and Huse as forl wards, l'arker at center, and Hachey and Lahhe as guards. In the opening game of the season, the strongest Alumni team in years was upset hy the Ragging Red Eddies to the tune of Bflfli, The "Fishermen" showed good teamwork and had the graduates completely hefuddled with their zone defense. The following Friday night, the Eddies continued to keep on the long end of the score, when they defeated .lay 3943. However, the Ghosts received a surprise in the next game as a strong Cony five came down from Augusta to upset them 39128. Llourneying to Vsfesthrook for the first conference tilt of the season, the Eddies rolled up a score of 4227 on the Paper City hoys, The Eds played some of their hest hall of the year in the next game, when they sur- prised an undefeated Mtnrse team and came home victorious 4243. The contest with South Portland was a heartfhreaker for the Auhurnites, for after leading three periods, they were finally edged out hy the Capers 4267, The Eddies then dropped another, heing defeated hy Portland 3907, The following game saw the Ghosts come hack and take an easy victory from Thornton 4933, 132 The Red Eds then proceeded to lose the next three in a, row. The first was a close one to Deering, which the lads from Portland won 2823. P'd'rtland then trounced them 39-27. Finally Morse, seeking revenge from the first encounter with the Eddies, edged them out 3663 in the last seconds of play. Coming mit of their slump, the Ed' dies upset Deering 3362 before a wild roaring crowd. In the next game at Augusta, the Auburn five settled scores with Cony beating them 4283. The Eds continued to ring them up, swamping Westbrook and Thornton 47f18 and 48f24 respectively. Here the Red Eddies' winning streak ended, as they dropped their next game to the Bates Freshmen 35'-25. Playing Natick, a team from Massachusetts, the Auburnites squeezed out a victory, when Frannie Parker cooly dropped one from around the foul line in an overtime, win' ning for his team 29f2'7. The Ghosts ended the season by losing another close game to South Portland 46-41. ,' ' Again Edward Little was selected to play in the Western Maine Principals' Tour! nament. This year they were paired against Cheverus. Although the Eddies put up a good battle, nothing could stop Cheverus who defeated them 24118 and ended -by taking the tournament. The season closed with Parker taking highest scoring honors in the state, tallying 207 points, while Huse was second with 138. As the Eddies have four out of five of the starting team returning next year, and several good reserves, it looks as though Ed' ward Little would have one of the best teams in the state, when the basketball season opens once more. fp TV 3 'isfk ll Q.

SWIMMING With 'LBud" White replacing Harry Hall as swimming coach, the Edward Little swimming team looked forward with high hopes to the oncoming season. Mr. White is a graduate of Edward Little and of Bowdoin College, where he was an outstanding swimmer. In the first meet of the season, the Eddies downed Deering to the tune of 3326. The Ghosts took the next one in line, as they defeated Lewiston, their rivals from across the river, by a score of 3829. journeying to Brunswick, the Eddies suffered their first defeat. The score read 3729. However, the Red Ghosts came back the following week to roll over Hebron 46f19. The Portland natators proved too much for the E. L. swimmers, who bowed to the Blue Boys by a 37829 margin. The Ghosts then proceeded to take Deering 3927, and followed up by completely sinking Lewiston 46f19. Again Brunswick was too much for the Eddies who were defeated 39327. Hebron, seeking revenge for their first massacre at the hands of the Red Eds, almost came throughg but the Red Eds finally subdued them by the narrow advantage of 34412. The Eddies ended the season by losing to Portland 3826. Edward Little came in fourth in the annual state meet, behind Portland, Brunswick, and Deering. 134 l l Front Row: Mr. Dwelley. Coach: R.

Don Skinner was the only letterman returning from the previous year, and anyone who follows track knows it is next to impossible to huild a winning team around one or two competitors. So Mr. Dwelley started to work, not to produce a winning team this season, hut to huild a cluh that would bring home the victories two or three years from now. The Eddies opened their schedule against a veteran Cony team. The Cony High players completely overfran the Red Ghosts hy a score of 95 '13, The next Saturday Edward Little joined with Stephens High of Rumford to meet the Maine Frosh. The Freshmen were too powerful for the comhined efforts of the two schools, and won hy the lopsided score of 108f8. The Ghosts found themselves in the meet with Hehron and fought hand and foot all the way, only to be edged out 6053. The following boys hold the various positions on the team: E. Capano, Dow, Skinner and Taylor, 100 and 220 yard dash, Marston and James, 440, Bishop, Bourgoin, and Hartin, half mile: Hartin and Bishop, mile, Blackmore, Taylor, Caldf well, and Peacock, high jump, Bishop and Charron, broad jump, A.

Curtis, K. Moore, E. Huse. Back Row: R, Raymond, W. Cullen With three letter men returning from the preceding season prospects for th Edward Little tennis team looked fairly good. Besides these men, two other players in the persons of Bill Cullen and Ralph Raymond came out. As hoth these hoys had had previous experience, five strong positions were filled on the cluh. A week hefore the first match, a twelvefinch snowfall greeted the tennis enthusiasts. Consequently it was an unrehearsed cluh that met Hehron a week later. The Eddies suffered an expected defeat at the hands of the Big Green hy a score of 6f1. The only match the Ghosts were ahle to pull out of the fire was hy way of Curtis and Huse who won their douhles in a three set affair, 66, 3f6, 1'.Zf10. Hard luck continued to follow the Eddies as the next match with Morse was post' poned on account of rain. However, with hopes of better weather conditions, the team looks forward to a victorious season. 135 Front Row: Mr. Messina, Coach: A. Godin, M. Godin, M. DiRenzo. L. Goussc, C. Kerr, R. Beaudry.

BASEBALL john Messina came from his regular post as assistant coach of football and basket' ball to take over the position of head coach of baseball, replacing Walter Akerley who accepted the job last year for the 1939 season. As only two lettermen and one veteran pitcher returned from the past year, Coach Messina had a difficult task to whip a team into shape before the season got under way. Mother Nature did not help him much in this respect, for wet grounds kept the players in the gym during a greater part of the pre-scheduled year. In the Hrst game of the season, the Eddies met a lOf3 defeat when they played the Bowdoin Freshmen. The Red Eds made their safeties count, however, as they scored three runs and made three hits. The following Saturday the Ghosts journeyed to Berlin, N. H., to play Berlin. After the Eds were dressed and ready to go, the game was called off on account of rain, so there was nothing for the belated club to do but turn around and come home. Playing their first home game, the Eddies again lost, and this time to the Rumford Panthers who took home the bacon by a score of 126. The next game was a heart-breaker for the Ghosts, as they gave a close decision to the Hebron Reserves by a Zfl count. Gagnon, Pontbriand, and Packard have done some effective pitching for the Eddiesg but so far this year the boys with the hickory sticks haven't given the hurlers much support. But one can never tell when these rookies will find their batting eyes, and then their opponents had better watch out. 137 Front Row: R. MacDonald. D. Day, A. Bunker. Back Row: A. Caldwell, W. Timpany, R. Caldwell, D. Fraser GOLF Again this year the Edward Little golf team entered the Southwestern Iviaine Conference. Since the Eddies meet some of the best golfers of the state in this league, they have to set a fast pace to keep up with their opponents. Unexpected snows and wet weather made the goliing season late this year, so that it was May before the golf team was able to get under way. An unscheduled match with the Bates Freshmen gave the Eddies a chanee to loosen up their muscles for the oncoming season. The Red Chosts were right in form, and handed the Garnet a 343 defeat. The Eds ofhcially opened their campaign against Thornton, However, the elubsters from Saco proved to be too strong for the Auburn team, defeating them 410. As three of the starting linefup are veterans from last year's team, the Eddies, led by Coach Carroll, soon expect to start ringing them up. The team consists of Bill Timpany, number one positiong Ralph Caldwell, number two position, Alan Caldwell, number three position, and Herbert Prout in number four. I SPORTS l.

In its program, the Girls' Athletic Association has given the girls of Edward Little a chance to participate in six sports: Volleyball, Basketball, Bowling, Baseball, Tennis, and Winter Sports. The large enrollment this year proves that it is an organization indispensable to the school. An important change has been made in the method of giving thc awards for the different sports. Each girl eligible for an award is given a certificate stating the sport in which she has taken part. Then, those who have received certincates may purchase one set of letters. BOWLING Bowling still takes first place in the list of activities. In the classic game between the Red and White teams, the Whites were the victors. Eleven girls were chosen for the varsity. They are Helen Carberry, Sia Rizoulis, Marcia Rollins, Catharine Abbott, Dorothy Currier, Velma Sylvester, Evelyn Marsden, Jean Keirstead, Martha Allen, Aletha Meade, and Arlene MacLennan. Although thc girls are considered good bowlers, the boys defeated them in the annual contest. 140 BASKETBALL Basketball holds the spotlight for many G. A. A. members. The White team con' quered the Red team in this sport also. From the girls who played, a team of hon' orary varsity players was chosen. The members were Jean Keirstead, Gwendolyn Wilson, Thelma Peacock, Theresa Dufresne, Mary Leclair, and Hilda Gagnon. In the class games, where the rivalry is the keenest, the juniors came out on top to take the championship. VOLLEYBALL Volleyball is growing more popular every year, as it does not require so much physical stamina as the other games. As an opening sport, it warms up the girls for later battles. The juniors showed even more athletic stars when they won the volley' ball tournament. WINTER SPORTS Most of the activity in Winter Sports was carried out individually. By going out skiing or skating, the girls collected points towards their letters. One of the G. A. A. members, Georganne Soutar, placed in the Androscoggin Interfcity Ski Meet. OTHER ACTIVITIES Instruction in tennis for beginners was given again this year. So much enthusiasm was shown that it may be that this sport will become very popular in the future. Base' ball proved to be another popular outfdoor sport. Swimming and archery were dis- continued because of lack of facilities. As an outside activity, a group of G. A. A. girls gave a volleyball demonstration for the State Teachers' Convention. Under the direction of Miss Doris Fitz, the Girls' Athletic Association has ex' panded and developed new ideas.

Some are happy ones, some, solemn, some bring a tinge of bitterness. But through them all, there is ever some light of hope or of desire which has steadied us in our gravest crises. As a whole, our days at Edward Little have been joyous ones. There have been times, however, when the light faded, and a sense of futility crept into our hearts. Then it was that we looked to our school and to our teachers for encouragement and guidance. Daily we have passed through the portals of Edward Little oblivious to the glorious traditions which have surrounded us. We have walked through the halls, unseeing, taking for granted this institution of ours. Then suddenly, the clouds have parted, the light has broken upon us. This is our school. Here, we have spent some of the happiest days of our lives. Here, we have worked and played. Within these walls we have been trained to meet the world with resolution. Edward Little has become a glowing symbol, inspiring us to carry out our dreams. It has taught us that although some things may suffer change, others will still live on, untouched by time. Now we may look back and see that the light which has guided us along the way and protected us from wrong is Edward Little itself. I HISTORY OE TI-IE "ORACLE" While browsing around the library the other day, I chanced upon a copy of the L. Chimes". I had never heard of this paper, but then, the date was in 1887, rather a long time ago. Through Miss Edna Cornforth, a teacher here for many years, I learned that this was the first publication issued at Edward Little. That was in the days when bees were kept on the third floor in the old building, and even before the ell containing Mr. Westerberg's room - study 24 - and the chemistry and physics laboratory had been added, to say nothing of what we know as the new building. These discoveries led to others about things that happened down through the years, directly concerning the history of our yearbook. The E. L. "Oracle" came into being in 1900. In 1901 it became the L. Champion" for three years, but after that it was "The Oracle" permanently. The irst "Oracle" was a monthly publication, a sort of magazine. Contributions came from students of all four classes - the freshmen were here then, of course. The june issue for 1911 took on the aspect of a com' mencement number by having quotations for the individuals of the graduating class. In 1914 an unusually upfandfcoming class of seniors decided to take full charge of the June issue. Accordingly, the freshmen had charge of the March issue, the sophomores of the April, and the juniors of the May. This practice continued until 1927. The class of 1914 was also the first class to have its pictures in "The Oracle". In 1915 we find that the orchestra, although it had been in existence for several years, became a permanent feature established on the credit system. Group pictures were a part of the "Oracle" in 1915. Faculty faces appear in a group in the 1917 "Oracle", This was the year the United States entered the World War, and we find that the price for publishing the "Oracle" rose from fortyfive to sixty dollars per month. 148 The Abraxas Cup came to Edward Little for the first time in 1918, through the good work of William Ludden, Henry Merry, and Everts Wagg. E. L. debaters, King Turgeon, Elton Young, and Philip Stevens, won the Bowdoin League debates. This victory means all the more to us when we read the following excerpt from the "Oracle" of that year, "Because of lack of coal, the Auburn Public Library was obliged to close its doors, thus depriving the debaters of their usual source of information." King Turgeon, now a professor of French at Amherst, was prominent also as a singer during his high school days. Raoul Dufail, who later studied singing in Italy, was outstanding in E. L. music circles. Is it any wonder that the Boys' Glee Club was a flourishing organization at that time? The exchanges used to receive a great deal of notice. They came not only from all over the United States, but even from farfoff China. To show the interest in the exchange department, I have only to state that the 1919 "Oracle" for June had a cut on each page depicting the early development of radio. Postfwar depression affected the 1920's so much that the seniors were obliged to publish their number without any pictures. This was the Hrst class to exceed one hundred in number. The E. L. band became an organization with uniforms in 1925. Senior superlatives appeared in the "Oracle" of june, 1926, under the title of "Honor Roll". However, they went a step farther than we do now, by having a "Post Mortem" which explained the choices. We have the beginning of the "Oracle" as a yearbook in 1927. Under Miss Alice Hawley the "Station E. L. H. S." was established, and a remodeled "Oracle" became the yearbook. This "Oracle" had the first fancy covers, which were of heavy, dark red paper. Faculty personals made their advent with this issue. The Boys' Glee Cub reached its zenith this year with thirtyfiive members. In 1930 Mr. Moulton, who had been principal since 1909, died. That year's "Oracle" was the last to be issued in the old building. In this number a humor department appeared, which has remained down to the present time. Starting in 1931, the full front page of the outstanding issue of the "Station" was printed in the "Oracle". Individual pictures of the faculty began in 1932, and since this was the year of the Washington centennial, the top of each page had a cut of Mount Vernon. The early history of Auburn was the "Oracle" theme of 1933. Frances Cartland drew many drawings of Indians to carry out this idea. Pauline Turner was valedic' torian that year, and the honor speeches were printed in the 'LOracle". Cuts as frontispieces for the classes and organizations came in 1934, and we find the Boys' Glee Club was still carrying on, why not now? The great event of 1935 was the participation of the Edward Little debating team in the National Tournament at Kent, Ohio. Caroline Pulsifer, Eldon Grant, Paul Wheeler, and E. Bisbee took part. Richard Eveleth and Laura Meade were alternates. Harrison Greenleaf took the team out in his car. Class histories started in 1937. Last year the distinctive feature was the grey cover, which had been used only once before, in 1922. Each year the goal of the "Oracle" staff has been a "bigger and better" "Oracle". Of course, it doesn't always succeed, but every year new minds think of a few new things, and the "ups and downs" make rather an eventful history. JOAN 'HAMMOND 149 TI-IE LUIQE OE THE LAND April twentyffifth dawned dull and gray. jude Crosley peered from the kitchen window of his farmhouse, while snow blew against the pane in specks of white dust. He stared at the spectacle, restless and resentful, anxious to grasp the plough handles and begin spring planting. But something distracting and intangible compelled him to stand there, shackled by the elements. The farm, which had been the Crosley's for generations, was as much a part of Jude as the blood in his veins. From the comfortable combination of house, woodshed, and barn, the land extended acre upon acre to the ice bound lake now scarcely dis' tinguishable through the sifting snow. As Jude stood there gazing into nothingness, he wondered why he stuck through drouth, late springs, and devastating storms. He had a keen, well-trained mind, and several times he had been irnpelled to "leave it all" for what seemed better prospects. Yet the farm held him. Sighing, he turned from the window to pick up his cap and jacket. It was time for the chores ..... June twenty-fifth dawned bright and pleasant. Jude Crosley peered from the kitchen window, and a contented smile parted his lips. Outside, a brilliant summer sun was pulling at the growing plants, fields were heavy with vegetation, and the garden rows showed varied ribbons of green. A soft breeze stirred the surface of the nearby lake where Jude's row boat tugged playfully at the anchor rope. A song sparrow was trilling in a fragrant lilac bush, while down in the meadow, bobolinks drenched the air with their ecstatic warblings. Jude took his straw hat from the peg, picked up the milk pail, and strolled out to the barn, humming a bygone tune. As he settled himself on the threeflegged stool beside a Guernsey cow, his father's favorite saying flashed pleasantly across his mind. " 'There's promise in the land,' " he murmured. "Yes, 'there's promise in the landl' " ERLE Huss I A MORNING ON Tl-IE NEW MEADOWS The New Meadows River is the deepest, easternmost, and most beautiful arm of Casco Bay, and moments spent looking out over its sparkling reaches will never pass from the eye of memory. For the present purposes, I shall confine myself to a description of a clear summer morning. I was awakened at dawn of the day under observation by the sun shining through my east window. I arose, descended the stairs, unlocked the door, and stepped out onto the wide veranda of our cottage. The sea that the rising sun discovered was as calm and smooth as the proverbial pane of glass, reflecting the deepfblue morning sky more effectively than any mirror. Looking down river, I could see the bordering banks of massive rocks and towering evergreens reflected undistorted in the serene mirroring surface of the sea. Overhead, a few gulls glided about with effortless watchfulness, scanning the velvet surface of the cove for an unwary fish or a bit of offal. Immediately in front of me, in the rough grass of our lawn, I could see the dew drops scintillating among the blades like jewels, beautiful but unattainable. With startling suddenness, a fishing boat that had been resting quietly in the placid cove started up and headed down river, its bowfwave pushing an ever widening wedge of ripples over the once peaceful surface. As the sun climbed higher, and the humidity became oppressive, I could see, way down at the ocean, a deeper blue than before, signifying that a breeze was approaching to break the stillness and herald the beginning of the active day. PENLEY STEPHENS 150 FULFILLMENT Where are you going, little flower? Who will take you from this box into which I am so carefully fitting you? Will her hands be as gentle as mine are trying to be? Surely it will be a "her", it must be, for flowers are made for "hers". Perhaps you will arrive at some tiny room where an aged mother is rocking away her remaining hours on this earth. If so, try to make her see that she is not forgotten, not quite, someone loved her well enough to send her you. Make her life with you a bright and cheery one. However, if you find yourself lifted from your box by youthful hands, be merry, little flower. Whisper in her ear each sweet message of love which was sent by you. Nestle in that fair lady's silken tresses and impart to them your fragrance and your beauty. Make her life with you a gay, romantic, memorable one. But then, if it is your mission to keep a vigil beside some sick bed, give every blessing for comfort, for health to that person lying there, give her hope and strength and faith. From your station near the bedside, make her life with you a quiet, peaceful one. But oh, little flower, wherever you go, leave your beauty there, and your message of love. CAROLINE GRAY MY TOWN Through avenues and squalid streets, The pulse of our small city beats. Its heart, the mills, supply the mass With food and rent and lights and gas. Others live by darker methods, Some of which are off the records. From the drab we turn to light, To things that make our faces bright, The old familiar lane and street On which the centuries rain has beat. The stately elms and ancient homes, Oh! would we'd never have to roam! The business secti0n's busy look, I know it all like an open book. The memories of my town will live, 'Till back to God, my soul I give. PRISCILLA STEWART O NEVER AGAIN! The whistles shrieked while mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and sweethearts sobbed their goodfbyes to their boys, to the young, sturdy, healthy youths that they might never see again. Suddenly the band blared forth with the national anthem. The steamer jerked from its moorings with a scraping, rasping noise, and those on the deck and those on dock smiled a quivering farewell smile and choked out a hoarse cheer. The huge transport with its stacks belching dirty, black smoke, steamed out into the harbor carrying with it young boys, sturdy boys, healthy boys, boys who might never see home again, courageous boys who were going forth to fight a courageous battle to keep the world free for democracy. That was the year nineteen seventeen. This is the year nineteen forty, and another World War is raging across the sea. Here in America, however, veterans of the first war are shouting from platforms, "No son of mine will ever fight on foreign shores". Only too well do they know the futility of their departure twenty years ago. EDITH GOULD 151 1. A three man band: Howard Jordan. Sam Illingworth, and Dick Paige. 2.

Our vicefpresident, "Bob" Beaudry takes a bow, for he "Did Most For E. L." "Prexy" Chesley is runnerfup .... Cagey "Don" Fraser is our "Best Business Man", and this time "Bob" Beaudry is at second base .... It isn't strange that Captain Erle Huse was voted "Best Athlete". He nosed out "Bob" Beaudry and "Larry" Packard by a matter of split seconds .... Because of his super drawings, Lester Gordon copped the title of "Best Artist". His partner in sketching is "Nick" Naum .... Would you believe it? Ralph Bean is "Most Absent Minded", and "Nick" Naum is again one lazy leap behind .... Harry McGlinchy defeated "Larry" Packard in the race for "Best Naturedn, and Dana Chaplin ran away with "Wittiest" with "Bob" Beaudry close on his heels .... The Senior Drama did its part in helping to select the "Best Actor", because "Dave" Andrews received the honor, and Russell Pelletier deserves very honorable mention ..... That "rootinftootin" trumpeter, "Eddie" Lothrop, outplayed that urazzlefdazzle' boy, Howard Jordan, by a couple of notes for "Best Musician" .... If you're looking for keen conversation, listen in on a classfwide hookup of a "Gab" between "Pen" Stephens and "Don" Day. The class gives "Pen" the honors for "Most Talkativev, but "Don" is doing all right for himself .... Bashful Ralph Huston is "Most Modest", and Ralph Bean is his assistant .... The E. L. "glamour kid", Ralph Albert Could, Jr., is the subject of 1940 Maidens' Prayers. "Larry" Packard is the answer to the dreams of some other girls .... He must have a strong constitution, but anyway, "jitterbug" Naum lasted a few minutes longer than "Dick" Paige in the marathon for "Best Dancer". . . . We have been told that "Ken" Dudley was L'Most Studiousn, and the poll proved this point .... Erle Huse and "Don" Day tied for "Most Brilliant", and Albert Crockett is in second place .... Albert Crockett followed by "Bill" Cullen cleaned up the votes for "Best Writer" .... And now that genial gentleman with the genuine smile, "Tom" McCarthy, is the owner of the "Most Pleasing Personality." That's all for now boys! I EDITOR -IN - BRIEF A slightly disheveled figure lurches up the walk and falls heavily on the bench. He is the editorfinfchief of any yearbook. This once robust lad is now a mere shadow of his former self g in fact, the change is so pronounced that not even his own mother recognizes him. When our hero undertook this task, there was a sparkle in his eyes, a spring in his step, and a press in his trousers, but now his breeches have a noticeable droop. There were circles under his eyes by the time the glossies had been sent to the engravers. The completion of the personals left him going around muttering to himself, and when the book had finally been put to "bed" he was a violent case, fit only for an institution. 154 IQ!-LO "CO- EDS" ' Marcia Rollins ran away with the title of "Miss 194O", with Ruth McKenney as close second .... It isn't strange that the honor of "Did Most for E. L." should result in a tie between Velma Sylvester and Joan Hammond .... Again Velma came through, and snatched "Best Business Woman" .... In spite of her size, "Gwen" Wilson proved to be "Best Athlete", leaving the rest of the weaker sex far behind .... "Kay" Abbott drew "Best Artist", with jean Childs and Ruth McKenney right behind her .... Don't let us forget to tell you that our "Most Absent Mindedl' is "Sian Rizoulis, with Nelda Millett in second place .... Gladys Cole is "Best Natured", and Grace, her twin, is 'LWittiest". These two must be a jovial pair . . . . Her role in the Senior Drama certainly put her over, because the class voted "Betty" Clough "Best Actress". Marcia Rollins did very well with her part, too, because she is second .... They're both small, but have you ever heard Marcia Rubinoff and "Barb" Boothby "tickle the keysu? They're our "Best Musicians" . . . . Adalia Nauyokas outftalked "Bessie" jones for "Most Talkativen, but only by a little! . . . . In an impersonal duel for "Most Modest", Bette Marble defeated Delillus Crockett "by a nose" .... "The Answer to a Young Man's Prayer" is the glamorous Barbara Boothby, and if the young man doesn't dream of "Barb", he will certainly dream of dazzling Berylis Philbrook, because she was next in line .... L'On with the dance", Alice Miller! You are our "Best Dancer" .... Because she is able to conf centrate, Joan Hammond was voted "Most Studious' .... It goes without saying, Qbut we'll say it anywayj, that Margaret Chase, our Valedictorian, is "Most Brilliant" . . . . Martha Allen, with Caroline Gray one jump behind, captured the title of 'LBest Writer" .... And last but not least, the girl with the "Most Pleasing Personality" is none other than "Mardie" Rolerson. "Congrats" and all that, gals! ! ! ! I "THE THREE PIGS" Remember the story of the pigs of three, I'll tell it to you as 'twas told to me. The first little pig built a house of straw, It wasn't so long 'til the wolf he saw. If this wolf, like us, could only speak, He'd say to you, "That pig was a treat." Then out in the world came pig number two, But the way he died would make you feel blue. Now pig number three knew all of the tricks, The home that he built was made out of bricks. This wolf thought himself a wise old fellow, But I have heard that this wolf was yellow. He thought the third pig would make a fine meal, So he planned one day this pig he would steal. This day for the pig was said to be sad, The way I heard it, it wasn't so bad. Piggy was clever and piggy was gay, Piggy would never give the wolf his way. The wolf tried one plan, and then many others, The pig wasn't caught as were his two brothers. You've all read the story, as oft heard it told, How down through the chimney the big, bad wolf rolled. Into a kettle the poor wolf did fall, And the third little pig wasn't sorry at all. No, he wasn't sorry. Why should he be? He cooked that wolf and had him for tea.
