concern. 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.

WAR LOAN DRIVE
During the month of April lahithe school
joined with the nation in participating in the
Second War Loan Drive, and by the close of the
campaign on May first it had purchased ,l090.90
worth of stamps and bonds. 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. The
competition between the houses was exceptionally
keen with these results as of M P.H., April 50th

Mr. M. 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.

The major improvement at school this mar
has been the addition of the ell to the Cottage.
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.

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.
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.
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.

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
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.

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
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

As there was little ice this year the op-
portunities for skating on the Exeter River were
very limited. 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.
