The students chosen to represent their class at gradua-
tion this year have been outstanding, not only in,scho1ar-
ship, but in extra curricular activities as well. The
honors were won through much diligent work and cooperation
by the pupils, Richard Dreselly, valedictorian, Vernon
Wilson, sulutatorian, Janet Smith, Lillian Hutchinson,
Arthur Hincks, and Dana Stubbs, honor essayists.
The theme around which the graduation program is cen-
tered is "Youth Today and Tomorrow", a topic which should be
first and foremost in all young minds today.

yet praise the government for the good job it is doing.
Many of us are complaining that we are losing many of our
rights as American citizens and we are drifting towards
distatorship, but this is just propaganda. Certainly we
have many restrictions now, but these are necessary in
an all out war such as we are fighting.
Many of us are unknowingly giving invaluable aid to
the enemy by spreading rumors of scandal in the govern-
mentg military and naval defeats, unpreparedness of our
fighting forces, and many other things equally disasterous
to national morale.

Blackout, blackout! it was screamed by sirens, moaned

grew dimmer by seconds, until in a few minutes one could

Portland and its adjacent towns were witnessing then their
first official blackout.
To most people the warning signal was a cue for them
to immediately assemble blackout curtains, blankets or

A few people preferred to take the whole affair as a
joke, and left their lights on as usual. These folks were
greatly astonished and somewhat ashamed when their Air
Raid Warden or policeman demanded their lights out. The
houses went black immediately.
It is hoped by authorities that if necessity should
require more blackouts that all past slackers will have
waked up. It seems to me that a twenty minute or even an
all night electrical blackout is a fairly small thing con-
pared to a permanent spiritual, political, and social
'blackout. Such a blackness would follow the defeat of
this country. Let's do our part while there is still time

Johnny's First Date
Mom,--Mommy, she's promised to go to the prom with
meil Little Johnny burst madly into the kitchen to break
the news to his young mother. She listens excitedly while
he babbles on about Joan, and how he, aged fifteen has
managed to wrangle his first date.
Johnny's brother Bobby, who is two years his senior,
bangs on the bathroom door.
NHey, will you hurry up? I've'got to have my shower
uOh, Bob, have a heart, your only going to a show,
and besides you won't have to leave till after I do. I've
only been here for half an hour.n
Poor Johnny emer es in a few moments, and heads
frantically for the bedroom, where his mother has laid out
his first formal wardrobe. It is now nearly six, and
while dressing he drops his collar pin behind his bureau.
In retreiving that, the third button on his shirt decides
to pop off. Now our poor little boy dashes pell-mell
down the stairs, where he knows there is someone to fix
The grandfather clock in the corner shows all too
plainly that it is 6:55, when Johnny again emerges, this

and heads for.the garage.
Joan Ralston, lives on Hill Crest Avenue, which is
about two miles from Johnny's house. He drives rather
slowly, as he approaches her home, but as he prepares to
drive in, his courage leaves him, and he circles the
block in the hope that it will return. Never in his
young life has he been so excited, and never so nervous,
yet he grits his teeth and h ads the car into the drive-
way. He steps from the car, heads for the front door,
and timidly rings the bell. In the second before she
greets him, he glances at his watch. It is 7:14, and
with a sigh of relief he realizes that at least he is on
Our beautiful Joan now opens the door, poised and
self confident. As they descend the steps together

When little Bobb1e's mother died, his Aunt Jane and
Aunt Betty took him in to live with them.
Aunt Jane was a middle aged woman, with a good na-
ture but with poor understanding of children. Aunt Betty
who was younger worked while Jane stayed home and kept
Betty was very fond of little Bobby and they used to
have grand times when she would get home from work and on
Bobby had lived in London with his parents before but
they were killed. He was a good little boy, but was used
to having everything. He was a smart little boyg when he
came to America to live with his aunts, he understood he
couldn't have everything he wanted.
He made friends with rather an old man, whom he call-
ed 'Gumpy'. He lived on the farm next to him. Every
afternoon the little old man would call Bobby in for
and cookies. They became great friends. One afternoon
old Gumpy, had a big surprise for Bobby.
nOh, Gumpy' please tell me what the surprise is. I'm
just dying' to know. Please, Gumpy,hurry up.n Bobby jump
ed up and down with anxiety,

and there it was--the cutest, littlest, puppy you ever saw

Quick as a flash Bobby was out of the door and stand-
ing on the back porch of his own house wiping his feet,
because Aunt Jane was very strict about her floors. He
opened the door and called anxiously, nAunt Jane, ooh,
Aunt Jane, look what I 've got, Gumpy gave him to me, oh
1sn't he wonderful? I'm gonna call him Pepper, because my
other dog's name was Pepper.'
'I'm awfully sorry, Bobby, but I hope you don't in-
tend to keep him here in this house. Now like a good boy
take him back to lumpy and you can play with him as often
as you l1ke.'
nBut Aunt Jane, Pepper is mine, all mine and I've got
to keep him. He can stay with me up in my room and he
wont bother anyonw, honest he wont, please Aunt Jane I---
nI'm sorry Bobby, but you'll be going back to school
soon, and I canft have that dog hanging around, always

With a depressing look and heavy feet, Bobby carried
his little puppy to the door, opened it and disappeared,
not to be seen until three nights later when they found
him and Pepper in an old cellar of a store in the city.

came hmmorized by boy and dog devotion.

With the fall of 1941 here, another basketball sea-
son which finds coach Atherton and his boys getting lim-
bered up for the tough games ahead of them has rolled
we had our first
good floor game
next Friday we
and good floor
around. After a few weeks of hard work,
test of strength with Scarboro. Having
we beat them 38-15. Butt Pratt played a
besides getting a lot of rebounds. The
journied to Windham. With his passing
game, Red Leighton contributed much to our winning by the
score of 44-21. The third week we kept on the road by
going to Gorham to play a highly favored team. They gave
us plenty of fight but the Falmouth team as a whole pul-
led us through to a victory, 27-11. The fourth week we
played host to Standish. Dick Plummer played an outstand
ing game besides making 16 points which assured us of a
win of 50-25, also Newall Tibbals aided with his 6
points and grappling rebounds. The next game' with our
perennial rival, Cape Elizabeth was one we all looked
forward to with great anticipation. During the game they
were never ahead of us but they were too close for com-
fort. Although he did no scoring, Bobby Moore, playing
his first game as forward, did much in breaking up the
Cape offense. The game ended 20-14. Thus closed the
first half of the season with no losses to our record.
Starting the second half of our scheduled games with
Scarboro was postponed because of circumstances beyond
our control. The following week Windham came down to
fall prey to our winning streak with Buddy Hincks as a
guard scoring 7 points and also getting a high percentage
of rebounds. We won 46-9. We entertained Gorham the
next week making a score of 50-16. Our youngest star
Kark Stimson as guard turned up 8 points. A trip up to
Standish was our next week's assignment and still our
winning streak was in effect. With brilliant playing
by John Stimson besides his scoring we had a fine score
of 57-50. The following Friday was the 15th of Feb.
Something must have had an ill effect upon the Falmouth
boys because they went out to the Cape and lost 24-29
despite hard fighting and great spirit. The loss to Cape
kept us in first place but our crucial game was with
Cape for first. We played Cape on a Friday and the next
night went out to Scarboro. Although everyone was very
tense and nervous, we pulled through famously to the
score of 40-21. Tommy Meehan played a good game as guard
scoring 12 points.
So ended the Triple C season for 1941-42, Falmouth
coming out as winners with but one loss in ten. Herely
we were put in line to play in the Western Main Class B
Tournament. A couple of weeks after our Triple C victory
we went to Saeo where we were paired with Farmington, who
the year before had won this tournament. Leading most of
the way, we suceeded in showing them off 22-12 although
at no time were we ahead of them any considerable number
of points. The next night we went back to play Kennebunk
who previously had beaten Gould Academy. Although they
were an excellent group of players also a nswell bunchn
of boys, we had little trouble in running up a score of
45-27. By beating these two teams, we won the Western
Maine Class B Championship which entitled us to go to
Brewer to play Lee Academy who had won the Eastern half.
Naturally, on the day the game was scheduled everyone was
excited. We chartered two railroad cars and the team
wlth.a large number of the towns people, who all through
the year had a long, tiresome ride but we finally arrived
about noon. Although we were all very hungry, the team
had just a lunch before playing which made us all fthe
more anxious to beat Lee as fast as we could. Finally
the game started. The second quarter we were able to
lead as we had in the first. At the half, Coach Atherton
gave us a pep talk as only he can. The third quarter was
much the same as the other two, but, in the last, Lee
started a rally. As usual Donny Cole, Johnny Stimson,
Buddy Hinks, Tommy Meehan, Dicky Plummer and Butler Pratt
came to the rescue and the final score was Falmouth 56,
Lee 27. I don't think that there were ever a happier
crowd of boys or towns people. Falmouth, for the first
time in the schools history, won three championships in
basketball in one year, the Tripple C, Western Maine
Class B, and the State Class B. The spirit of the boys,
coach, and the people was the prime factor in our winning
these coveted awards.
The most crucial game of the season was played with
Cape at Cape on Friday, February 13. The game was a
closely fought contest, with one team and then the other
in the lead. About the last second an unidentified Fal-
mouth forward dropped in a basket to make the final score
25-21. For the third consecutive year the girls won
the Tripple C Championship by playing clean, aggressive
The team was composed of the following girls: N.
Hawkes, H. Villacci, M. Bragg, M. Cooper, E. Prince, L.
Kloth, I. Russell, S. Lane, R. Wallace, L. Villacci, L.
Anderson, A. Hansen. Since only Nancy Hawkes and Rosie
Villacci are lost through graduation, the prospects for
next year are very bright.
Congratulations, Coach Smith, you have done a swell
job producing championship teams for Falmouth.
Bang! They're off.
The 1941 Swim ing Meet was held October 22, at a new
place, the Portland Boy's Club. Lined up on the starting
line for Falmouth were J. Smith, N. Hawkes, M. Bragg, D.
Bjorn, B. Clement, I. Russell, A. Lane, J. Storer, M.
Cooper, and P. Russell seeking revenge for their l point
defeat by Cape last year.
When the splashing stopped, Falmouth had a total
score of 29, 12 more than their nearest rival, Windham.
Those receiving medals were N. Hawkes, B. Clement, M.
Bragg, D. Bjorn, J. Storer, I. Russell, and A. Lane. The
relay team composed of B. Clement, M. Bragg, D. Bjorn
and I. Russell did some fancy swimming to Lake first
We wish coach Rogers and her future team many more

Falmouth High couped top honors this year in the
Triple C indoor track meet by competing with and beating
Scarboro, Standish, Windham, Gorham, and Pennell. High
point man was Tommy Meehan with 20 points. In gaining his
points he broke three records, the hop skip and jump, the
rope climb, and the short put. Also gaining honors were
Butler Pratt, Dicky Plummer, Donny Cole and Bobby Ames.
We, here at Falmouth High School are looking forward
to a fairly successful ball season this year. We lost
only one lettcrman and gained a lot of new enthusiastic
material. Although they are reen, Coach Atherton will
mold them into a finished team. A new plan is being put
into effect which will permit more students to' see more
of these games. We will start promptly at 5:00, whereby
the students will be able to see the game in time to get
their buses home. Everyone is eager for baseball to
start and try out the plan. Boys that are out for it are
Tommy Meehan, John Stimson, Donny Cole, Forest Leighton,
Gordon Crawford, Lloyd George, Larry Geor5e,Robert Ames,
Newall Tibbals, Arthur Hatch, Teddy Vail, Hugh HcCorkle ,
Arthur Fredricksen, John Doughty, andtDnna Farbicius.
The Blue and Gold ran into rather stiff competition
this year at the Rifle Meet but managed to place third.
Pratt was high man for Falmouth with a total score of 91.
Next year looks a little briphter with three lettermen
returning to form a nucleus for Mr. Drummond to build
This year's meet was put in the strong arms of Tommy
Meehan, who was highest scorer for Falmouth, taking 2nd
place in the 25 yard dash and 2nd in the 50 yard dash.
L. Borge and L. George competed in the backstroke.
CBorge demoralized a swimmer from an opposing team by a
John Stinson and Arthur Hatch did a good job in the
diving and Johnny Stimson and Bob Ames in pushing the win-
ners in the 50 yard breaststroke.
The relay team composed of Tommy Meehan, Bob Ames,
Arthur Hatch, and Manson Swett took second place to place
Falmouth third in the meet.

Once more we are proud to write of one of our two
major social events. The Pop Concert under the guardian -
ship of Miss Rogers, was the most spectacular event ever.
The auditorium was decorated in typical Christmas
fashion, with trees, bows, glowing tensil, and snow.
The entertainment was furnished by members, both in
solo and group numbers, of the student body.
Thanks and appreciation go to Miss Rogers, Miss
Littlefield, Miss Smith and the student body who helped to
make this occasion something to remember.

Music by the Orchestra and Band
With radio, music today has become one of the essen-
tials of life. We hear it practically every day in some
form, but who can get as much enjoyment from it as those
who can actually perform. The pupils of Falmouth have
worked together in their weekly rehearsals of the orches-
tra under the direction of Mr. Stetson. Through these
they have steadily improved, making us very proud of their
public performances. The first of these was at a Forum
meeting of parents and teachers. The Pop Concert started
off with a medley of Christmas carols played by the orches
tra who then struck up the music for the grand march.
Later they made their radio appearance on the Sunday
afternoon nSchools of the Airu broadcast. This prompted
several remarks which pleased and encouraged the young
musicians. May its good work continue.
When stirring peppy music is needed we look to our
band which has been active this year. Rallies and basket-
ball gares would not be nearly so exciting or interesting
were there no such organization. Yes, even the cheers
this year were supported with peppy music, and the gym was
ringing with voices and instruments on basketball nights.
The cheerleaders dressed in white with large megaphones,
and letters, prompted the enthusiasm in several special
f I :W
At the annual Exhibition the band played again feat-
uring this terms four drum-majorettes who strutted out in
flashy blue and gold satin uniforms. Each was featured in
a twirling solo number as well as performing together in a
routine drill. As the climax they stood at attention dur-
ing the singing of the WStar Spangled Banneru accompanied
by the band.
In this school a large percentage of pupils are able
to take part in music, and what better experience could
each of these take with them for their life from Falmouth
Many thanks to Mr. Stetson and Miss Pratt for their
untiring efforts .
