The first copy of the SIGN by the boys on a small mimeograph a few years ago a larger and better was bought and since then a considerable amount of equipment has been added. The boys who are on the Signboard are those who have the most number of hours of workto their credit. In spite of the inexperience of most of the board members,everything has run very smoothly. We hope the same enthusiasm will be carried on to next year's Board. - I s.,Is,wvx.sm 4Y W THE SIGN, 'Y MAGICIEXNS' GUILD i This year the Emerson Glilo of Magicians completed iLs third successful fear under the di- rection of hr.

This amount was suf- ficient to buy a jeep for the United States Amny. The enthusiasm shown by the boys in sub- scribing to the War Loan Fund was a fine example of practical patriotism. Wsacrificesn of allow- ances and many Wednesday and Saturday afternoon treats were cheerfully made by all the boys.

Souders, Director of Athletics at Phillips Exeter Academy, was the first speaker at Vespers on October 19th. Hr. Souders' talk on the physical training program at the Navy Pre- Flight School at the University of North Carolina was of much interest to the boys. Lieutenant W. Hunter Perry, U. S. A., a former member of our faculty, was the Vesperssmede er on November twenty-second. He discussed thewak of the Military Police and answered many1pBstions the boys had on this branch of the service. Bm:Reverend,Elbridge Stoneham of the first Unitarian Church in Exeter spoke to the school on December oth on the pictures of ourselves that we draw in the minds of others. On January 51st the Reverend Walter W. Clem of the Episcopal Church-in Exeter spoke on Divine Law and the necessity of applying it to our daily lives,particularly in times like these. We had the pleasure of heiring Lieutenant Porter Kimball, U. S. A., an alumnus of Emerson, speak during the chapel period of February 12th on UTank Warfaren. One of the most interesting talks of the year was given on Sunday, February 23th, by Mr. Louis Harlio of the Brookings Institute of Wash- ington, D. C. Hr. Harlio's proposal of a UUnited States of Europen provoked a long and interesting discussion and question period. Mr. Fowler of the Department of Physical Education at Phillips Exeter Academy, Save a thrilling account of fishing and canoeing in Northern Canada. We were delighted to havelum speak to us on this subject at Vespers, April 10.

This new addition provides accommodations for four boys, and is made up of two bedrooms and a large common study, all finished attractively in natural wood panelling. Of Colonial design, and in keeping with the rest of the school buildings, the new addit- ion was planned by the school architect. One of the most interesting features of the new build- ing is the large percentage of the construction which was done by the boys. As a work project in connection with the Ranger program the addit- ion has provided much valuable practice in the development of manual skills. All the boys in school have at one time or another aided in re- moving over one hundred tons of fill from the cellar hole, and have set more than six hundred blocks in the foundation. f' XX - i 7 4 xx j ..

Y A V I x A 3 0 4 . 1 . tp f As in past school years, a Student Council has been elected. This election differed from last year's in that instead of electing two repre- sentatives from each house, one boy was elected to represent each of the various houses and two were to represent the school at large. These elections took place early in the fall term when all the boyshadtmcome thoroughly acquainted, and in IFeb- ruary just after Christmas vacation.' The election winners in the fall were David Ellis, Hunt House, Dick Handel, Hawthorne Houseg -Gharlie Baker, the Cottage, and John Reed, Emerson House. The boys representing the school at large were Tom Thomas and Lorry 'Wooldrodge. Uinners in February were Tom Thomas, Hunt Houscg Ralph Mulcahy, Hawthorne House, Earl Florence, the Cottage, and John Reed, Emerson House. Elton Cosse and Charlie Baker were Hat largeu. The work of the Council was to create a closer unity between the boys and the faculty. To reach this objective Weekly .", meetings with a faculty advisor mere held. This practice was con- tinued throughout the year with success. .Pl v --+-+---M--+0--+----WTI-lla sleN Pi-IOTCDGRAPHY CL UB This year the Photography Club didnft do as much as it had hoped. This was due principally to the lack of a ark-room. In the first part of the year the boyse' st to-' -i,t,V ifthinking that they would use tie cel jQQQQ2jeJ,ifUfiPm8TY ,yib as a dark-room. The weather'd9Hf?tion?idade it impos- sible for this, so nothing much was accomplished. The officers of the clue were Dick Smith,Presidenq Joe Kerr, Secretary, and the-follow, g boys were members: Frederick Smith, Charles'Le-M han, Warren Abbott, John Chandler, Gregory Stewart, Marshall Wellington, and John Sargeant. Although the club was unable to have any exhibitione, they did take some of the pictures for the Sign. Hr. Wildes was their faculty advisor. WAITERS' CLUB At the end of the fall tern due to the shortage of help, Mr. Turner started the waiter's club. The original five members were Joe Kerr, Earl Florence, David Ellis, Dick Taylor, and Sandy Draper. After a few weeks Kerr, Taylor, and Draper stopped. Tom Thomas and Lorry Wooldredge took their places. Charlie Lcnnihan and John Alden were auxiliaries. The whole crew was doing so well that the faculty decided to give all the waiters a dinner at the Exeter Inn every two wrks. On April fourteenth the members gave up their din- ner and bought war stamps mith.the money. We feel that we owe a lot to the waiter: because they kept us well supplied with food throughout thevdnter and spring terms. wma-.-4-M--.9---H+..-Tu-:E sneN f W xii r' r" r' - C OM M L N C L ML N F As We go to press, plans for the thhv teenth annual commencement exercises are almost completed.

Though no regular teams were organ- ized the boys hadimany hard-fought games between pick-up teams. John Waterhouse, Jack Kern,s and Claude Mosseri were outstanding players.

However, these obstacles have fail- ed to dampen the enthusiasm of the boys forpiay- ing every afternoon that is possible. ' A few games have been played with town teams, and some may be played with the Light Red and Blue teams at the Academy. While almost the entire school is active in baseball, uniforms have been issued to the following boys:Joe Kerr, Lorry Wooldredge, Tom Guglielmo, Randy Gardner, Eugene Baker, Dick Taylor, Ralph 'and Francis Mulcahy, John Alden, Sandy Draper, and Charlie Lennihan. ' 1 SO? TBALL Though regular baseball has been cmdailed somewhat, softball has had a flourishing spring with one or two groups playing every evening the weather permits. Plans are being made as we go to press to form an intramural league that will have a team representing each form entered in a round- robin series of playoffs. 7 ' M-W-M-+--Q-V---Q-Q---Tl-IE SIGN -+0-+-M----------'-S HV ' r' mtl RAM The annual ski-meet with the Tamworth High School team took place early in March at Tamworth, New Hampshire. Somewhat handicappedby a lack of practice, the Emerson team was defeated b the Tamworth team having an elapsed time of 228 lf5 seconds to Tamworth's 212 life seconds. Although the score was not in our favor the boys had an enjoyable and lnvigorating week- end. KA NGEK PROGRAM Reflecting the spirit of the times the school this year has established a closely coor- dinated program of work, physical training, and sports. A contest was held early in the year for the purpose of naming this new course and Ken Smith's suggestion of the NEuerson Rangersn was accepted. The Ranger program is based on amkiinite series of ranks through which a boy may advance by completing necessary requirements of work, physical skills, and sports. All boys start the program as privates and may through work and physical development attain sergeants'and lieu- tenants' ratings. To date a number of the boys are privates first class and a few are corporals. In instituting the program the schodl was divided into three groups, each of which was assigned one day a week to the work program, the commando course, and sports. The Ranger Program has proved an efficient and popular way of coor- dinating our work and sports activities. .1 4+ ya THE SIGN n I 'CHO' 'Ov-00000001 IMOHOMO' -Ov-Q-4-4-Q0--0000 1 4 su gr 'PF I l 13+ z Q 2 T 4?

This year with the wartime emphasis on the saving of gasoline and the curtailment of un- necessary traveling, bicycling as a sport enjoyed increased popularity, The Bicycle Club was formed early in the fall and sponsored by Mr. Turner. Many trips were taken during the year on Sunday afternoons. The first real ride of the season was a trip to Newfields, one of the oldest towns in New Hampshire, with other shorter trips to Kingston, the dam outside Exeter, and numerous rides on the country roads outside of town. Thirteen boys turned out regularly for the Sunday rides: Dick Smith, Ed Tucker, Dick Marshall, Phil Horse, Sam Reynolds, Walter Cook, Steve Mandel, John Eater- house, Karl Pearson, Charles Haneock,Davii Ellis, and Joe Kerr. -00000-O"O'IO"O"O'l 5-Qiiijiini as--f""f'f3" aa- -A ---as K THE SIGN Positions on the Echoes' staff are open to all boys who wish to try for them.

Thus hockey did not develop into a major winter sport as usual. Several good snow falls, however, did provide ample opportunity for sk1ing,tobogganing, and coasting on the hill back of school throughout most of the winter months. Due to transportation difficulties, the usual winter sports weekend trip to Mooselaukee had to be cancelled and a winter sports holiday was substituted in the middle of February. Those boys wishing to ski hiked to a good hill outside of town where lunch was served and the day spent skiing. The younger boys stayed at school to coast on the back hill.
