Fortier EDITORIALS SCHOOL SPIRIT AND YOU People often ask a student graduating' from high school, "What is the most important thing, in your opinion, gain- ed in school?" It is a question that would rarely be answered the same by any two people. My own answer would be that intangible quality known as school spirit. First of all, what is school spirit? I feel it is pride in your school and every- thing connected with it. lt is not only being proud but also showing this pride. This year we have so many reasons to be proud with a fine new school and very good teams in all sports. By at- tending the games and supporting your teams, you cast your vote for the teams and your school. I' But school spirit is not just sports and competition. It is pride in the school itself. A visitor can tell by the appear- ance of a school the amount of school spirit that exists in the student body. How is this important? As you grow, your school spirit also grows. From sup- porting your high school, you grow to support your city, state, and nation. As you vote in class meetings, you choose the ones you believe best qualified to represent your class and school. In later years as you vote you will vote for the ones you believe will be best for your city, state, and nation. -I X, Patriotism is grownaup school spirit. When you go to a basketball game be- tween Ellsworth and Old Town, if you are from Ellsworth, you certainly don't cheer for Old Town. School spirit is loyalty to your own school. So in later life, you don't switch from one country to another. Patriotism is loyalty to your own country. Maybe people don't cheer as loudly when the debate team wins a decision as they do when the Eagles win a close game, nevertheless the pride is there when Ellsworth High School wins any- thing. The school isn't a lot of small groups competing against each other, but a large unit joined together by school spirit. Be proud of Ellsworth High School always because, win or lose, it is your school. Joan G. Knight '53 A CHANCE FOR IMPROVEMENT Another school year is already near completion at Ellsworth High School. We will graduate an intelligent class this year as we have done in the past and will continue to do in the future. We, as a student body, have greatly improv- ed since entering our new high school. All the organizations have become re- cognized in their field. It may even be noted that the students have found a greater interest in classes because of better facilities with which both the students and teachers may work. How- ever, there is still room for improve- ment. Assemblies are educationally enjoy- able. They provide a pleasant change from daily routine and ought not be looked upon as chances to "escape" from school work. As an introduction to the afternoon program, school talent is often presented. All this reveals the fact that assemblies are a privilege to have and should be gratefully received. No matter who the person is, no ex- cuse can be given in his defense for his acting impolitely and rudely in any way in assemblies. It is in no way gratifying to those gathered for the program to be continually distracted by those who are evidently lacking in politeness. High school students should know that assem- blies are not for persons who find them- selves unable to act as other students do. That is only one of several things which need to be corrected. We will do well to continue to raise the level of our activities and behavior as the years go by. School is not all written work, but a process of bettering oneself in many fields.

" 'Til we meet again," my friend, I so dislike good-byes. They seem to say, "The end is come, The bond between us dies." Say. " 'Til we meet again," my friend, Our parting's not foreverg Good-byes are better left unsaid When our paths must sever. Say. " 'Til we meet again," my friend, But never say, "good-bye." Good-byes can only mean the end- They're not for you and I. And when death does the eyelids close And calls one Home on high, We'll meet again on Heaven's shore So do not say "Good-bye."

The setting of the play was an English boarding house in the late 1940's. The story, dramatic and serious, offered, in the character of Madge Don- nythorpe, unusual opportunities for student acting. A former student, emot- ionally unbalanced and warped, returns to her old teacher and attempts, first, to get revenge for past injuries, then to seek asylum from herself and a hostile, lonely world. It was well acted under the direction of Edward M. Holmes. Thirty-nine rehearsals went into the pre- paration of this play to insure its success. The cast was as follows: .Ieanne Douse Mrs. Beauclerc Connie Beal . . Nora Nancy Candage Miss Malleson Rita Linscott . .. Miss Figgis Elaine Farren .. . Mrs. Heysham Nancy Rowell . Madge Donnthorpe Hadley Jordan . ............... Major Shales The prompter was Joyce Round. The stage crews were as follows: Car- penters: Robert Gordon, Harold Young.

POETRY at THE SUNSET HOUR Were I to be locked in a dungeon Save for one hour of the day And I could choose the hour When I from my prison might stray I would choose the sunset hour The hour of the golden hue When even the grass of the fields is re- freshed. From the kiss of the falling. dew. The hour when the frogs are singing The hour when the winds are still The hour of the gentle zephyrs The hour of the whip-poor-will I'd linger there at sunset 'Til twilight begins to fall Then silently I'd tread the path Back to my prison wall. Geneva M. Frost 53 WHAT THE MOUNTAINS SAW The royal mountains blue above the trees A deeper blue than shined across the lake, Saw the grass bow down beneath the breeze That caused the leaves upon the trees to shake. An Indian maiden stood upon the shore, Gazing across the waters shimmering blue. Many hours since she had left her teepee doorg Waiting for her lover so fond and true. Her doelike eyes were shining wet with tears Why must he grieve her this way so? A canoe appeared to set at rest her fearsg She smiled a smile that only love can know. He took his Indian maiden by the hand And led her toward the waiting Indian band. Mary Reynolds '56 THE NIGHT The night, clothed in garments - dark and rustling, Adorned with the bright stars of heaven, Slips in at the fast fading sunset And holds captive the human heart. Through the sweet zephyrs, she whispers To the heart held in awe by her beauty, Dreams that wither away at the sunrise, That fade away at the sunrise, That die - though hopes live - at the sun- rise. Geneva M. Frost '53 THE OCEAN Oh mighty ocean, ruler of the earth, Beyond your algid waters of afray, Your rolling magnitude of noble worth, The mystic wonders of all eras lay. Your limbs so small yet full of life and pride Are aye enduring avid deeds of bale. Your graceful waves go with the ebbing tide. Aloft the white caps agile boats still sail Transporting goods from shore to shore anon. They strive to join the world in unity But you delight to daunt the world eon, Amused as only one like you would be. Oh ancient king of dignity and guile, Your ageless face for e'er I know will smile. Barbara Littlefield '55 POETRY To thee, 0 muse, I dedicate these lines, Thou fair elusive maid of inspiration Who leaves me when I'm striving for creation Of poetry to sound as thou divine. What can I do to woo thee to my side The while I write of wondrous things I've seen Of mountain, lake and placid little stream That beautify this world where we abide. Oh, if I could but write in words inspired And share these beauties with my fellow man Who has not seen the things that I've admired, My lifel then would have purpose and some p an. So comle, dear, muse, I humbly do beseech t ee, And let my mind with words and zeal be fired. Myron Jones SON NET Last night as they were strolling up the walk, The moon was shining bright up in the sky, Their thoughts were of the party not the clock, He looked at her and gave a little sigh. "I guess you should be going in." he said, "Your mother will be waiting by the door, She'll want to hear of all the fun you've had, I'll see you Sunday afternoon at four." She watched him off the porch and down the awn, Then rushed into the house to tell Mom all, She showed her Dad her paper hat and horn, And told them how she'd won the rubber ball. For Janie was a little girl of eight, Jan's birthday party was her first "real date." Constance Hurley P O E T R Y fcontinuedj AUTUMN The leaves in the fall come fluttering down, To carpet the ground for the fast falling snow. They flutter and blow as around they flow, With colors of yellow, red, gold and brown. Their beauty soon covers both city and town, While all around us their colors seem to ow. Their beauty deceives the fate to which alhey SO, And soon we see the hunter and his hound. As they fare forth to hunt the wary fowl. Then soon the gun is heard above the wind As through the trees the winds whistle and howl. All summer the birds in the trees have been, But. soon they will join the migratory fowl Whlle the leaves flutter on to cover the ground. Joseph Jordan WILD GEESE Wild geese Call to their mates. In autumn skies they form Familiar V-shaped bonds to fly Southward. FREEDOM Freedom Gentle Maiden Desire of every soul . . . Her cause has set the hearts of men Aflame! IRIS Iris Purple iris Nodding their queenly heads Like harbingers bear tidings of Springtime. SPARROWS Sparrows Gay song sparrows Flitting from tree to tree Raise their sweet voices in songs of Gladness. Geneva M. Frost '53 ONE DAY OF SIGHT If there were now but one day left to me, Wherein my searching eyes could yet behold The shining world and memories enfold All that my heart held dear and ne'er would see. After the dark when I would sightless be, fd rise to watch the waking world unfold With colors gay and fleecy clouds that rolled Across the azure sky to meet the sea. Faces of loved ones dear, I'd put away And sights of peace, despair, sorrow and joy Within my memory to still remind Me of all I had known while I had day, Memories that sightless years could not destroy. Though the dark curtain fell and I were blind. Geneva M. Frost '53 THE GREAT ARTIST I could not paint a picture of Thy universe- The wide sky, the wooly clouds of white, The golden dim ray of morning lightg The yonder dark green forests that rise Behind the rolling plains and hills, The The The The Thy splashing waves on a rock coastg gurgling of the brooks and rillsg distant purple mountains, I see: yongler plain where a tiller works the so g art is life: Thy art is living! Thou art a mighty Artist, oh my God. Geneva M. Frost '53 THE FIRE I saw the smoke roll o'er the wooded hill. I saw it rising black against the sky. I saw the flames shoot up then fade and die. As if enraged, I saw it leaping still From out the forest to the homes and mill. And from the valley heard the awful cry Of those left homeless as the fire swept by. And theih when night had darkened, all was sti , I wandered where the raging fire had died, I watched the strickened walk their weary mile And 'rfiid the ashes view the ruin - their oss And force back tears when they longed to have cried. I saw those hardy people force a smile And humbly stoop to lift again their cross. Geneva M. Frost '53 t S DRIVER TRAINING Back row: P. Jenkins, M. Ray, L. Nickerson, J. Lunt, J. Ashe, M. Pike.

Joyce Round Bal LGA LQ NATURE'S PICTURE Looking across the meadows at daybreak in early autumn, one can view one of Nature's most beautiful pictures. Beyond the back- ground of purple mountains, the sun slowly and peacefully breaks through the hush of dawn. Over the tree tops, garbed in their dress of red, yellow, and orange, it continues to cast its brilliancy on a little brook quietly drifting by. In the fields, the asters and golden-rod roused from their sleep by the morning sun, wash their faces in the refresh- ing dew. Glancing beyond this beautiful picture. one can see the loving hand of God quietly at work creating beauty for us to enjoy. How beautiful are the creations of Nature! Marlene Joy DEBATE 5.8.

As he approached the city limits, he saw the sign. "Speed Limit, 15 miles an hour." Frantically poking his oxen with the stick he muttered, "I don't be- lieve we can make it." "You're a nuisance," said the father to his unruly child. " The next time I take you out, I'll leave you home." Professor: "Give the most imporant fact about nitrates." Student: "They're cheaper than day rates." "Mother sent me to get a package of diapers for the new baby." "Here's the package." said the store- keeper. "That'll be fifty cents for the diapers and two cents for the tax." "Never mind the tacksf' said the boy. "Mother uses safety pins." Student: Sir, I don't thing I deserve an absolute zerofl Professor: "I don't either. But it's the lowest mark I can possibly give." First Farmer: "Quite a storm we had last night."

Among the most interest- BANKIN This year our school banking has been very successful. On the first bank day only 9.5 per cent of the students banked. Each week, thereafter, there was a steady increase until February 3, the percentage was 55.1 per cent. During this period the school average was 30.3 per cent. The juniors, with a percentage of 32.8, were closely followed by the sophomores with a 32.5 percentage. The percentage for the freshmen was 28.7, while for the seniors it was 24.4. Room GPR ing were the assemblies for Thanksgiv- ing, Education Week, Christmas and the initiation of new members. During Education Week members of the club presented three programs over the intercommunication system and had as guest speaker at an assembly, Rev. John Brett Fort of Bangor. Other guest speakers have been Super- intendent Henry G. Perkins, Mr. Charles Katsiaficas, Rev. Robert Simonton and Rev. Charles Dartnell of Brewer. Rita Linscott' News Reporter OGRAM C was the highest room with a percent- age of 47.9. The Biology Room. Room H, and Room G. were closely bunched. each having a percentage of over 40. For the last seven weeks the Biology Room maintained a 100 per cent aver- age. Room H reached the 100 per cent mark twice while Room D and G each reached the mark on one occasion. We hope that more students will take part in this activity before the year is over. Judy Willey '54 fi if ASSEMBLY CLUB Fourth row: E. Farren, S. Richmond, J. Jordan, D. Clark, R. Gordon, P.

The The band organized this fall under the direction of Mr. Van Patten. Rehear- sals got under way with about forty participating members. Since we already had most of the needed uniforms, we looked quite smart at the many events we performed. Some money was raised by various methods to help pay for the uniforms which we have and to start a fund for some more new ones. We are planning a rather different concert to be presented this spring. We are going to have this con- cert, not only to raise more money, but, also, to show our audience what we can do.

Maine's Glass I, Basketball Champions After a verv successful season last vear. the high fiving Eagles of Ellsworth High. under the tutorship of Charles Katsiaficas. soared to an even better season this year, winning 23 and losing 1. This season was the greatest ever en- ,ioved bv an Eagle quintet. as they won the State of Maine Basketball Champ- ionship. There were four lettermen returning from last year's squad and of these only one was a senior. They were: Juniors, Kent White, John Scott, and John Edes, and Senior, Herbert Hodgkins. The starting quintet for the Eagles were: Dick Willey and Jack Scott, forwards, John Edes, center, Harold White, Jerry Jor- dan, and Kent White, guards. The play- ers rounding out the squad were, Her- bert Hodgkins, George Davis, Dick Dunn, Phil Edgerly, Jerry Kane and Jerry Crabtree. The manager was reli- able Hugh Grant. The Eagles, though not possessing too much height, made up for their lack of height with speed and ball-handling, determination and hustle. Ellsworth, unbeaten for the second straight year on their home court, held twin victories over Pemetic, Winslow, John Bapst, Old Town, Bucksport, Mount Desert, Rockland, Brewer, Bar Harbor, and a single victory over Husson College of Bangor. In the Eastern Maine Tour- nament, Houlton, Old Town and Stearns fell before the Eagles. In the State Championship playoff, they tamed the Panthers from Rumford. The Eagles were handed their first loss by New London, Connecticut, in the New Eng- land championship playoffs. The only other defeat administered to the Eagles was at the hands of the Alumni in a ben- efit game for the Hospital Drive. Besides winning the State and East- ern Maine Championships, the Eagles won the Hancock County and Penobscot Valley Conference titles for the second straight year. In the point rating sys- tem for the tournament, Ellsworth was rated second with a 101.65 rating. The Eagles scored 1,722 points to the oppo- nents 1,298 points in 25 games. They never scored under 50 points in any game all season. The substitutes were used so much in the high scoring games it began to be doubtful if the first five would win their letters, but the second team picked up a great deal of experi- ence which points to a good season next winter. Next year the Eagles will miss the services of George Davis, Herbert Hodgkins, Richard Dunn, Harold White and Gerald Jordan and the competence of Manager Hugh Grant. A lot of praise should be given to Coach Charles Katsiaficas, who taught his boys that not one man but five boys working together make a team. This year's team was just that. The secret BASK5TBAbbfcont. to the Eagles' success was the ability of all five boys to score. The opponents cou1dn't hold down just one man be- cause the other four would take up the slack. While all the regulars were get- ting headlines, the substitutes were tak- benchu. So a little bit of praise ought to be given to the boys who sat in the back seat while the others were grab- bing the glory. Herb Hodgkins, Dick Dunn, George Davis, Phil Edgerly, Jer- ry Kane and Gerry Carbtree - take a ing a back seat, but as the old saying bow. J.

Displaying all the drive and courage commensural with the unbeaten sea- son's record of 18 wins, Gerry Jordan, a tower of power for the classy Eagles pitched up a desperate shot which will live in immortality with Ellsworth fol- lowers. On the play, Chapman was fouled, and that posed another of those blood- curdling, tension packed moments. He went to the line for two shots, hit the first when the ball curled and dropped through the twine, then erred on his second try. And once again the count was knotted, this time at 51 - 51. Only 35 seconds remained. The howl- ing, wild-eyed throng, emotionally wrung out by the furious pace then saw Ells- worth's John Edes hoop the clincher. Edes hit on a pass from Jumpin' Jack Scott, feinted Dobbins out of the lane, and pitched in a two-pointer which saw the teams leave the floor with Ellsworth ahead, 53 - 51. H.

Against Iloulton, the Eagles failed to show their scoring power, but this was completely changed against the tribe. Displaying one of the most fastfbreak- ing schoolboy teams seen in years, Ells- worth left little doubt about the final outcome. The game was close for the Hrst periol with the Eagles holding a slim 14-12 period edge. The roof fell in on the Indians in the second period, however, as the Hancock County power- house exploded for 29 points, to take a comfortable 43 - 30 half time lead. Sparkplug ofthe Eagles attack was big .Iohnny Edes, who makes all his shots look easy.

The rug- ged Edes hooked and faked all afternoon and nothing the Indians could do was able to stop his scoring. Much credit for the Ellsworth win must be given to playmaker John Scott whose shooting and floor work were big factors in the long run. Scott clicked for 20 points himself as well as engineer- ing many plays into Edes in the pivot. Old Town was able to stay close for some time, thanks to the work of Bob LaPlante, who hit for 18 crucial points with a variety of shots. High man for the Indians was Dick Geroux, who cop- ped 21 markers and played a fine floor game. It was a question of just too much firepower against the state champs. Ellsworth's deft-fingered boys contin- ually stole the ball and caused tactful errors which hurt the Indians. Depth and speed paid big dividends for the Eagles who racked up their 19th con- secutive win. Ellsworth's quintet was something to watch-dazzling at times, spectacular on occasion and generally speaking, any- thing but the ball club which hobbled past the gritty Houlton entry the day before. It was Ellsworth's powerful one-two wallop which axed the underpinning from under the hustling Indians. A combination of Johnny Edes and jump- ing Jack Scott, an amazing pair of work- men, zipped the rugs out from under Coach Johnny Barker's Old Towners. Edes pumped 24 points through the hoop and sure-handed Mr. Scott reach- ed up and rang the bell with another 20. And that wasn't all, either. Gerry Jordan checked off 11 and Dick Willey had 10, giving the visitors a four- pronged attack that all but scuttled the Tribesmen. The sum result of Ellsworth's potent attack, will for the first time since 1945, bracket the Hancock County youngs- ters in the Eastern Maine finals. The showing put on today by Ells- worth dispelled all doubt of the Eagles' right to be in the championship finals. Pre-tournament appraisal of Ellsw0rth's unbeaten streak of 17 wins, all during the regular campaign, was minced with ridiculous talk of "weak competition." In two tournament games, against Houl- ton and today in the Old Town semi-- finals engagement, the slick-operating victors put a sudden halt to loose talk and second-guessing. Edes was a positive marvel in the silks while working from his pivot post. He hit eleven field goals in 22 tries, which is big league shooting, fed off with dazzling hand-offs, played a strong defensive and rebounding game - and in the face of fighting off, on occasion, two to three guarding Indians. Scott, the backcourt pepper-pot, igni- ted the Indians with his glossy, stylish play and those three unsung but tre- mendously effective running mates - Gerry Jordan, Dick Willey and Tug White -- just went about their busi- ness to make Ellsworth one whale of a ball club.

Ellsworth vs Stearns In posting a 50-47 verdict over a strong Stearns team at Orono, Saturday night to Win the first eastern title for their school, the Garnets reached an anti-climax to their sparkling season of 21 consecutive victories. Their game against Stearns was a fit- ting climax to an outstanding tourna- ment and their victory gave Hancock County two of the three eastern titles. In Stearns they faced a club well schooled in Maine's favorite winter pas- time but they had the needed spark to rise from a five point deficit, take the lead and stave of an everthreatening group of Minutemen-a mark of cham- pionship ball in itself. Pointing out key players in the wrap- up is an impossibility. There were no stars above the others. All of them were stars but the spotlight fell on one man, unheralded in the two previous games, as one who gave the champs a needed push at the right time. He was rugged Tug White. When Stearns left the floor at the half boast- ing a five-point lead, it appeared the tide might be turning in favor of the Minutemen, but young Mr. White took personal charge and dunked seven points to bring his club back on even terms. The Eagles were equal to the task. Whitets splurge in the third quarter brought them back with a bang and a ELLSWORTH versus STERNS fcontj hooker by Edes put them back in the lead only to relinquish it on a side shot by McAvoy. Four foul shots by Dick Willey who had a perfect night at the foul line helped shove Ellsworth back into a tie and another point by Edes gave the club a 41-40 lead at the close of the third. The fourth frame offered a brand of ball that was a bit more ragged than the first three, when real championship play was presented. The tilt was a great one to win and a tough one to lose. Despite a handicap in reach, Ellsworth got a big portion of the bounces. Eagles clubs had reached the final in the past and later the semi-finals but this was the first title for Ellsworth High that has been on the border line of M and L play for many years. The coaching by both Katsiaficas and George Wentworth played a big part in the game as they presented clever master- minding from the bench. The scoring was well distributed on the Ellsworth squad. Edes' 19 points topped the list while Tug White had 11, Willey nine and Scott seven. Bragdon's 16 led the losers with McAvoy dunking 12 and Healey eight.

Three men were unanimous choices and three schools gained representa- tion on the Eastern Maine a1l-tourna- ment team, a vote by the coaches of the eight teams displayed in a poll conduc- ted by the NEWS. John Edes of Ells- worth, Mike Bragdon of Stearns and Herbie Barakat of Waterville each re- ceived the maximum number of votes in the poll, seven, while Jack Scott and Terry Healey completed the all-tourney team. Second team in the voting according to the ballots: Jack Dobbins, Houlton, Dick Geroux, Old Town, Peter Handis, Gardner, Tug White, Ellsworth, and Pat McAvoy, Stearns. Others to receive votes were: Kent White and Dick Willey, Ellsworth, Leon- ard St. Peter, Old Town, Jamie Hamil- ton, Bangor, and Don Farquhar, Stearns. Charlie Katsiaficas, coach at Ellswor- th, stated if he could select his own men he would name his own squad right through. 'Tm proud of the way they played, but we had some great competi- tion," he stated. "Men like Dobbins of Houlton and Healey and Bragdon of Stearns can really give you a hard time." Other coaches voting were: Wally Donovan, Waterville, Bill Hanscom, Presque Isle, Red Barry, Bangor, George Wentworth, Millinocket, Gordon Smith, Gardner, John Barker, Old Town, and Wess Hussey, Houlton. E1lsworth's poise and doggedness ap- peared to be the wafer-thin-difference between the two squads. Never once did the Eagles panic, even when they trailed 32-27, which chanced to be at half-time. Then came that tremendous third quarter with Ellsworth bucketing 12 points to Stearns' eight. It was the Eagles' spectacular defense that cooled off Stearns. And the rebounding of Tug and Kent White and Gerry Jordan, unselfish performers, will never be out- lived in the minds of those who viewed this trio scrap a bigger rival right off the hardwood. Happiest person was Ellsworth's Johnny Edes. "Gee, what a feeling! The other fel- lows played wonderful ball, didn't they?" Boy named John Edes had himself a pretty good tournament. He swished 59 points through the netting, including 19 against Stearns. Said George Wentworth: "Just one of those things. They played great ball. My kids were fine. We're disappointed. ELLSWORTH versus STEARNS fcontj Frankly, we thought this was the year. Somebody had to lose. Tonight it was us." Said Katsiaficas: "The Greeks are smart people. Always it seems, they can give with the philosophy. I'm speech- less. Give the credit to the kids, and don't forget Stearns, please. We licked a great, great team. That's why I am so proud and happy we won this one." Athlt' D' t.G.D.L ,C l Chl Katsieaficcasirlihacg of Referele?s?Cl1la,1Effes Woatltoelj. State Championship Game - - Ellsworth, 60 - Stephens, 45 Displaying the same deft touch and court craft of their pre-season play pro- fessors, Ellsworth High's Eagles clawed stunned Stephens High of Rumford, 60-45, to swoop to its first state Class L flarge schoolj basketball title before a bumper crowd in the bulging Waterville Community Center Building. Unbeaten Ellsworth, Eastern kingpin, soared to its twenty-third win and quali- fied for Thursday's New England school- boy tournament opener at the Boston Garden. Game attendance, estimated on 4,800 seats sold, and 400 standing-only ducats, swelled the bui1ding's capacity to at least 500 more than the tourney fan record set in 1944 here. ELJLSWORTH versus STEPHENS teontj The classy Katsiaficas Kids, who de- rive half their fond title from Coach Charlie K., apparently absorbed much of the inside hoop wizardry of the Boston Celtics, early season point practitioners in the Ellsworth Gym. They dazzled the Western Maine Panthers and first time viewing fans with fancy passing, tremen- dous drive, aggressive rebounding and discouraging accuracy e v e r y w h e r e around the hoop. Stephens, beaten but once in 20 school- boy starts, stuck doggedly to a hopeless task of trying to clip the scoring wings of the soaring Eagles. If there was any strain encouraged by a near-berserk mob exceeding the Hancock County club's city population, they failed to show it. Conditioned by a community's winter spectator zest that shelved fishing and lumbering for the basketball mania, as the town's principal occupation, Ellsworth was long on deli- berate, point-piling tactics, and alterna- ted control and firewagon ball with snap and precision. The glass backboards in use here fail- ed to upset Ellsworth's poise. but the new experience for Stephens was sad- dening. tlmsing Slmilmi' llirk liillvy ELLSWORTH versus STEPHENS teont.l The Eagles even refused the slightly rangier Rumford crew an even break in the backboard battle. Springly Eagles climbed high often to snatch a nxissed Rumford shot and clear the boards for a downcourt drive. Standout offensive playmaking, reflec- ting the Celtics' "lessons," featured the Ellsworth attack. Jerry Jordan was a major Ewing" in the Eagles' win, hawk- ing balls even suspiciously loose and firing bullseye passes to driving mates, John Edes and Dick Willey for point conversions. Two fine hook shots of a professional manner by the Eagles' Johnny Edes stood out in the second quarter. It was apparent early after the inter- mission that the smartly coached Ells- worth quintet was not going to let the lead slip through their fingers. The Eagles started to play control ball and force the Rumford five to commit the errors. The tempo slowed considerably in the first few minutes but then the teams battled on nearly even terms for the remainder of the stanza although the Easterners added one-point to their ad- vantage for a 45 to 33 lead at the three- quarter pole. 'llliere mis no change in tactics for the new state champions in the final chapter but naturally the Panthers were foiceu to press fo. the ball in an attempt to pull the game out of the fire. How- ever, this was to the Eagles' liking as they moved the bali smartly until a man worked clear under the hoop or got one step ahead on lhe fast break. Then llal t'l'ugl White and Scott came through to put the game on ice.

The game was the opener of the New England lnlcr- scholastic Tournament. The Eagles offered Maine's best show- ing in the tournament since 1949 when Waterville was nipped in a late rush by Somerville, yet they faced a heavily fa- vored club. The game was called much closer than the usual Boston brand and it hin- dered the Garnets no little. This, pair- ed with the fact that the club was out- reached by far made the difference. With the exception of these two major items the Eagles were on a par with the ..f" New London vs Ellswtorth Whalers all the way and superior to them on several occasions. Ellsworth's ball handling was good but their shooting from the floor sagged as they tried to score over the towering team from Connecticut that boasted four men over six feet. Jack Scott stole a big part of the spotlight and was the best man on the floor by far. He kept his club geared full speed and his contribution of 31 points came within six of the individual scoring mark held by Ronnie Perry of Somerville. Twice the gallant Eagles who were a credit to the State of Maine staged sparkling comebacks. A spurt of a min- ute and a half in the third period sliced a 34-27 halftime deficit to a one point, 34-33, but New London ganged up to halt the drive and pull away. Another splurge chopped the margin back to two points, 49-47, at the start of the four- th and the Whalers were forced to make an all-out effort to regain a working margin. Then the fouls began to take their toll: Scott, who played two and a half periods with four miscues registered against him, never did foul out but Johnny Edes left with 5.50 remaining. Just 20 seconds later steady Dick Wil- ley left on fouls. Tug and Kent White and Jerry Jor- dan each had four fouls against them and it meant cautious work for the Eagles. Ellsworth stayed within four points through three minutes of the fourth with Willoughby doing much of the damage to Eagle blasts and when Edes left on fouls it was the signal for an all- out attack. Burns and Kent White tra- ded foul points then Willey left on fouls and the gap was stretched to 15 points. Reserves took over and sliced the margin to nine but time was running out and New London moved into a semi- final round. Watch Those Passes!! -- Kent White Scott's 31 points was the best by far and one of the outstanding marks in tournament history. His points came on good floor play and excellent basketball while Perry piled up his record mostly on set shots. Edes dunked 14 points despite a tre- irendous handicap from big men under the boards, one being six-foot five, 220 round Ed Siff. Willey accounted for 12. O'Connor led New London with 20 points while Willoughby had 17, Philo- pena 15 and Burns 12. All fans in the Garden as well as those along the press row were high in their praise of the Ellsworth team and the fine coaching job offered by Charlie Katsiaficas. The excellent schooling kept them in contention all the way, their best asset against the towering reach of the Whalers. " A large delegation of Ellsworth fans was on hand to cheer for the Eagles and Ellsworth signs were in evidence throughout the spacious Garden. 3 THE SUMMARY New London 4757 6 9 Willoughby, f 11 5 3 17 0'Connor, f 13 7 7 6 3 20 Epps, f 0 0 0 0 0 0 Riley, f 0 0 0 0 0 0 Philopena, c 11 6 9 3 4 15 Siff, c 0 O 2 1 1 1 Burns, g 5 4 5 4 5 12 Devlin, g 2 0 1 1 2 1 Devico. g 0 0 2 0 1 9 Devendittis, g 3 2 6 5 3 9 Totals 45 25 41 25 22 75 Ellsworth 4673 Scott, f 23 11 10 9 3 31 Willey, f 9 5 4 2 5 12 Davis, f 0 0 0 0 0 5 0 Hodgkins, f 0 0 0 0 1 0 Edes, c 13 4 13 8 5 14 T.

Observation from the Siclelines EAGLES SCORE HIT WITH VETERAN OBSERVERS Ellsworth High School's court club that bowed to tourney favorite New London is the best Maine team ever to appear in the New England lnterschol- astics, according to a veteran official. George Hoyt of Boston, retired and honorary official who supervises the offi- ciating and whose word is respected more than any one connected with schoolboy and college basketball, stated that the Eagles were the most impressive team he has ever seen from Maine. "They are by far the best coached club I have ever watched from Maine and that includes the Waterville team of 1944 that won the title," Hoyt said. "That boy tJack Scottj is one of the best players I have seen too." he add- ed. "Maine doesn't have to apologize for that team. It's a credit to the state." Also heaping praise on the court ability of the Eagles were members of the press and radio. According to com- ment Scott stands a chance of being named all-tournament. tand he Wasil Although losing to New London, Ells- worth set a new scoring record for a los- ing team and shared in another record, that of the high point total for a tourna- ment game. Most of the fans were still talking of the excellent showing made by the Eagles. ' Say, those Ellsworth Eagles went down fighting, eh? All Maine must be proud of them today. Of course a vic- tory would have been sweeter and that's the target for another year. However, Ellsworth proved that there's nothing the matter with Maine basketball that a few victories won't correct. And in defeat Maine basketball made progress. Definite progress. lt's the kind that will help us in the seasons ahead, too. QJQ-l There was a time when the first round opponents of Maine teams took a somewhat dim view of the quality of basketball played in this state. Not even the glorious cage conquests of Portland in 1936 and Waterville in 1944 could dispel the general New Eng- land thinking that Maine's entry was the "soft touch" of the N. E. schoolboy tournament. This season, however, there was some- thing about that Ellsworth team and its march to a state crown that made the boys stop, look and intensify their tour- ney preparations. New London's able Coach O'Brien spent a bustling week stressing that "these are no country cousins down for the ride." Beyond that, according to early re- ports filtering back to Maine, New Lon- don culled all available advance mater- ial on the Eagles. They weren't taking any chances. The word out of Maine was: Watch those Eagles! Jack Scott proved why Ellsworth cap- tured a state title. It was a team's team all the way- However you put your clamps on one of the point-makers, one of the others would knock you reeling Using a zone defense, New London zeroed in on center Johnny Edes. De- spite the multiple efforts the Ellsworth ace corralled 14 points before he walk- ed the penalty plank. Yet in corralling Edes, New London almost got itself put out of business, for the talented Jack Scott took up the scor- ing slack and when it was over, the slim Eagle scorer had 31 points, almost a New England tournament record. Only the almost fabulous Ronnie Perry, Holy Cross' great set-shot, bettered Scott's tournament output. What makes Scott's performance all the more impressive is that he did it while handicapped with four personal Sideline Observations fcont.j fouls most of the game. In fact, he racked up 31 points in just about three periods of play. What those Eagles did has reflected favorably on every high school basket- ball player in Maine. Congratulations, champs! TOURNEY TOPICS PIG Pk if Ellsworth, coached by former Univer- sity of New Hampshire star Charlie Katsiaficas, has lost only two out of the 38 basketball games it has played in the last two seasons! Ellsworth is not a tall club, it relies on speed and cleverness, and its attack stresses sharp ballhandling. The team lost its tallest player, six foot two inch Phil Edgerly via a broken leg in the last game of the season sche- dule. 'li Dk Pk Many of the fans are wondering if Ellsworth's Charlie Katsiaficas can real- ly smile. He has yet to crack as much as a grin as he masterminds his Eagles with grim determination. If the Eagles come through the chances are they will find out. Ik Pk lk The Stearns-Ellsworth game? Imagine ten ball players the likes of Mike Brag- don, Dick Willey, Pat McAvoy, Jack Scott, Larry Kelley, Gerry Jordan, John- ny Edes, Terry Healey, Tug White and Jimmy Ebbett on the floor, all at the some time. When they come together it'll be the best ticket buy in America- if you're so fortunate as to locate a ticket. Pl: if -Q- Both Waterville and Stearns play Ells- worth's style of ball with jet-like passes and nifty ball handling. For defense, the zones rate highly in the present tournament, being effective a great many times. Small men in a tall man's sport were a noticeable and important factor in the tourney, and in many cases made their taller brethern look a little less than silly. Stearn's Johnny Spruce and Jim Ebbert, Waterville's Barakat brothers, Bangor's Bob Russell, and Ellsworth's Dick Willey were some of the standouts in the small-man, big-game department. Pk PF PK Edes was tremendous with his scor- ing effort and the poker-faced Scott, as usual, set up many plays. Tug White also. came through with some timely scoring.

In the remaining meets the Hill and Dalers defeated Old Town once and Pemetic twice, while losing to the University of Maine Fresh- men and Lee Academy once each. Ernest Tracy, taking up where Paul Firlotte, left off, was the number one man for Ellsworth. He finished third in the Northern Maine Meet and received a medal for this feat, he also finished a strong fourth in the State Meet over a field of one hundred and forty boys re- presenting twenty schools. 'F Awarded letters for the first time. Tug White "53" TRACK TEAM Last year's track team was under the direction of Coaches Leslie Larson and Charles Katsiaficas. The only lettermen returning was Paul Firlotte. In the first meet of the season Brewer edged out the Eagles 47-44. Firlotte was the victor in the half-mile. Arnie Fran- cis placed first in the 440 yard run. In the next meet, Old Town defeated Brewer and Ellsworth in a triangular meet. The score was Old Town 55, Brew- er 23, and Ellsworth 11. In the P. V. C. meet Paul Firlotte broke two re- cords when he won the mile and the 880 runs. This year's track team will also be under the direction of Coaches Larson and Katsiaficas. The following lettermen are returning and are being counted up- on to make this a successful year in track: Russell Archer, James Edgerly, Ted Lobley, James Harris, Lewis Mer- chant, and Jerry Jordan. Losses will be felt in the broadjump, 14 mile, mile, 220, and 440 runs, and the highjump, where graduation took a heavy toll. The squad will take part in the P. V. C. Track Meet scheduled to be held at the University of Maine the last of May. Other meets are being scheduled. CROSS COUNTRY Front row, left to right: E. Tracy, J. Edgerly, P. Edgerly, R. Archer, S.

GIRLS' BASKETBALL At least the girls learned two things during the season. Playing basketball is fun even though we lost the majority of the games, and what girl can concen- trate on basketball practice with the boys' teams practicing beside her! The team had plenty of talent but the opposition seemed to have more. The forwards who led the team with their shooting eyes were Norma Awalt and Sally Bunker with 115 each, Mil- dred Hardwick 105. Total points for the season: Ellsworth 362, opponents 394. The team had sen- ior tri-captains for each game. Mana- gers assisting Coach Plaisted were Elea- nor Forni, Jeanne Douse and appren- tice manager, Sandra Crowe. Jane Colwell '54 Nancy Rowell '53 GIRLS' SOFTBALL With ten regular players and the sub- stitutes behind them the Ellsworth High Girls' Softball Team went out to meet their competition. This journey proved successful considering the green ma- terial, the lack of experience, and most of all the weather. The Eaglettes flew on, only to be stopped twice by Bucks- port and Old Town fplay-offy, 14-8 and 9-4 respectively.

As is customary, the former members of the previous year's basketball cheer- ing squad made up the football cheer- ing group. We helped cheer our foot- ball team on to a fine season. The usual excitement preceded the choosing of the basketball cheering squads. Those who lasted through all the try-outs were: varsity, Marilyn Per- kins, and Norma Weaver, co-captains, Joan Knight, Jane Colwell, Lois Per- kins, Anitra Giles, and Mary Bernardinig junior varsity, Susan Guite' and Vic- toria Guite', co-captainsg Loretta Re- mick, Jane McGraw, Barbara Little- field, Beverly Partridge, and Brenda Nason. Anitra Giles transferred to Fort Lauderdale High School in Florida and was replaced on the varsity by Susan Guite'. The Athletic Council generously do- nated money for new uniforms for the varsity squad. These uniforms were made up for us by Mrs. David Carney. We also had nine megaphones to help us be heard even more than usual. The cheerleaders served as ushers during the basketball season, and also helped usher at the big Celtic drive. We also gave our services during many drives, such as the Polio Drive and the Heart Fund Campaign. Both squads developed new and snappy cheers to deliver to our enthus- iastic Eagle fans. There was much fun concerned in cheering our respective teams on through their victorious sche- dules. Marilyn Perkins '53 TYPICAL SONGS Mr. Piano Player Oh, Happy Day!

A pamphlet entitled "Maine's Most Serious Educational Problem" was pub- lished by the Maine Teachers' Associa- tion this year and distributed through- out the state. We found a copy lying on a shelf in room A with an equals sign after the title, pointing to the pencilled name, Dick Austin. We erased the name because we think the writer of it was wrong. Dick Austin, is in this instance the victim of gross exaggeration, is not Maine's Most Seri- ous Educational Problem. We can say that because we know what is. The problem is one for school archi- tects. These ingenious fellows have quite wisely done away with stairs. No more nonsense about falling up or down stairs between classes. . . This is an eminently sensible arrangement, al- though anyone who lives north of room J knows that if you don't get through the front door before the first bell rings, ou will be late CTeachers from that 'gud ofthe building have talked of equip- pmg with chocolate bars students that go to band practice, and of training car- rier pigeons to take messages to the office.l What the designers must do now, since they are committed to long hall- ways, is to design one with no corners. Not being in school themselves any more, they don't know how disconcerting it is to pass before-school and between- class minutes in a modified version of a tunnel of love. They must not get the naive notion that a hall has only four corners, or even eight. Every time someone opens a door there is another corner. Open a door and a nearby lock- er as well, and you have not just four corners, but a sort of makeshift tele- phone booth. These things are a menace to the sensibilities of most students, who feel silly, blushing every twenty- fifth step. There is no use arguing with people who are going steady fmight as well talk to a rock wallj, but we could get arch- itects to design halls in new schools differently. What is needed is a cylindri- cal, polished-chromium passageway with sliding doors for both lockers and rooms. Such a hallway should be brilli- antly lighted, either from skylights, or with artificial lights controlled by a N0 GOODHBYS Friendship like ours cannot be swept away, By a single tidal wave nor winds undo The great foundations that the years have laid On which is built my lasting love for you. Time's violent storms cannot lay waste the years Of sunshine, shadow, joy and tears we shared. Though each may choose a separate way It cannot be as if we never cared. Sunrise - sunset - and many miles between Our kindred souls can never partg Through sunshine and rain I'll remember, In dreams your smile will stir my heart. As years creep on, we bow our hoary heads And listening hear the trumpet from on high. One must go first to cross the swelling river, But even then we cannot say, "good-by." Geneva M. Frost WHO? Who paints the leaves all red and bright? Who watches o'er us both day and night? Who hung the stars in the evening sky? Someone greater than you and I. Who gives us faith, love, and life? I Who comforts us in this world of strife? Who gave His son for us to die? Someone greater than you and I. Who walks with us over life's rough road? Who will take from our heart its load? Who gives us wisdom if we but try? Someone greater than you and I. Emilie Macy SONNET In autumn all the trees will change their hue, From green to all the brightest red and brown Their colors are to them each year so new That they are disinclined to lay them down. The most resplendent forest talisman-- The oak - its reddish branches to the sky It raises in respect unto the sun Whose rays it needs else it should wilt and die. The maple with its cloak of red and gold Lends background to the birches straight and tall. The smallest of the trees submit to cold And turn their leaves to color one and allg Then when the shafts of sunlight filter through God's handiwork is here for all to view. Victoria Guite locked switch that not just anybody could throw off. This would be expensive, you say? Think nothing of it. A new tax, a cor- ner-tax assessed on couples going steady in old-fashioned school hallways, would pay all added expense. ALUMNI NEWS CLASS 0F 1952 Sarah Anderson, Gordon College, Boston, Mass.
