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
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
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
Be proud of Ellsworth High School
always because, win or lose, it is your

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-
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
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

D0 NOT SAY GOOD-BYE
Say. " '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."

"Corinth House" Senior 3-Act Play
On October 29, the class of 1953 pre-
sented its three - act play "Corinth
House". 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

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-
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, clothed in garments - dark and
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-
Geneva M. Frost '53
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
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
So comle, dear, muse, I humbly do beseech
And let my mind with words and zeal be fired.
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
Then rushed into the house to tell Mom all,

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
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
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
Call to their mates.
In autumn skies they form
Familiar V-shaped bonds to fly
Desire of every soul . . .
Her cause has set the hearts of men
Nodding their queenly heads
Like harbingers bear tidings of
Gay song sparrows
Flitting from tree to tree
Raise their sweet voices in songs of

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
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
Though the dark curtain fell and I were

THE GREAT ARTIST
I could not paint a picture of Thy universe-
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,
splashing waves on a rock coastg
gurgling of the brooks and rillsg
distant purple mountains, I see:
yongler plain where a tiller works the
art is life: Thy art is living!
Thou art a mighty Artist, oh my God.
Geneva M. Frost '53
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
I wandered where the raging fire had died,
I watched the strickened walk their weary
And 'rfiid the ashes view the ruin - their
And force back tears when they longed to
I saw those hardy people force a smile
And humbly stoop to lift again their cross.

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

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
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. Edes '54

ELLSWORTH vs OLD TOWN
Ellsworth's Eagles showed true cham-
pionship caliber as they rolled over the
Old Town Indians with an 84 - 57 score.
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 smooth center ruined
the Indians by connecting for 24 points,

Much credit for the Ellsworth win

Eastern Maine Championship . 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

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
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
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.

he would name his own squad right

Displaying the same deft touch and
court craft of their pre-season play pro-
fessors, Ellsworth High's Eagles clawed

60-45, to swoop to its first state Class L
flarge schoolj basketball title before a
bumper crowd in the bulging Waterville

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

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

ed to upset Ellsworth's poise. but the

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

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
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-

step ahead on lhe fast break. Then

The game was called much closer
than the usual Boston brand and it hin-

With the exception of these two major
items the Eagles were on a par with the

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.

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
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
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
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-

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

O'Connor led New London with 20
points while Willoughby had 17, Philo-

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

EAGLES SCORE HIT WITH
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
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
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-
New London's able Coach O'Brien
spent a bustling week stressing that
"these are no country cousins down for
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
What makes Scott's performance all
the more impressive is that he did it
while handicapped with four personal

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.

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-

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

Captain Tug White, by his "never give
up" attitude and his hustle, proved to
everyone who watched him and played
beside him that he was a good leader.
For his efforts he was chosen on the
All-Little Ten Conference first team.
Some mention should be given to the
smooth passing combination of Jack
Scott and Kent White, the "Iron Man"
work of Jasper Kane, who played line
on defense and quarterback on offense,
the great ball carrying and tackling of
fullback Jerry Jordan, and the fight-

This year's manager was Johnny Edes.
The squad finished fourth in the North-
ern Maine Meet and fourth in the State
of Maine Meet. 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.

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
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.

of May. Other meets are being scheduled.

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-

tice manager, Sandra Crowe.

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. If this year the team
comes back all willing to learn and with
more spirit maybe the P. V. C. softball
trophy will be invited to gather dust
for another year in our trophy case.

The cheerleaders organized this year
under the supervision of Miss Russell.
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-

Fort Lauderdale High School in Florida
and was replaced on the varsity by
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-

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

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-
