O almost every person comes, that sen-
sation at one time or another of drift-
ing, in which the body is helpless but
thoughts active. It usually occurs when one
is half-asleep or drowsy. Pictures flash un-
summoned before your closed eyes or ideas
spring unbidden into your brain. This
essay is based on such an experience. Though
inherently it is a fantasy, nevertheless there
is a delicate stencil of truth tracing its subtle
Off the tip of Florida is a small island
with a narrow strip of white sand on one
side. At the time of which I am speaking,
very little was known of it, and I was de-
termined to swim out and explore it. Thus
it was that one morning found me in the
tepid water slowly headed for this same
piece of land. It happened to be the first
time I had been in a bathing suit since I had
reached Florida, and it certainly was a change
to have my cares forsake me with each wave
that washed up over my shoulders. Even
so, I began to think that my strength was
not equal to my zeal. Tiring, I flipped over
on my back to gaze dreamily at the clouds
drifting above like tufts of snowy cotton.
Suddenly another object drew my attention,
a motorboat tossing up the spray as it sped
toward me and leaving a trail of white be-
hind it. Didn't they see me? I moved into
sudden activity, waved one hand and
shouted,-a rather difficult procedure when
in ten fathoms of water. Nearer and nearer.
Ah! the fellow saw me and at the last
minute swervedg but the foaming wake
which followed the launch caught me in its
grasp. I struggled, sank, and came up gasp-
ing, choking for air. My arms and legs
Hailed. I lost my senses. Gallons of jade-
green water seethed over me. My sight was
blurred now. Down and down, and the
farther I sank, the lighter and happier I felt.
My body was apart, impersonal, I could even
breathe well. No cares, no worries, only
this mass of water, boiling and swirling,
forming all sorts of pictures. I began to
dream. What else could it be called, this
detached feeling which brought me a clearer
perspective than 1 had ever had before?
And as the water bubbled around, in its
magic, mystic depths I could see the coral
just below and the glints of color as the fish
swam about. But even as I looked, the rest-
less waters were stilledg and the crimson,
topaz and emerald reflected from a source
like the setting sun changed and melted in
together. Then, as if an unseen hand had
waved a magic wand, the liquid darkened
to an ebony-black with an irregular stain
of crimson like a spilt goblet of wine or-
and I shuddered to think of it-the scarlet
flowing from an open wound. I saw a line
of trenches filled with men, and in front a
mass of barbed wire and posts.
was suddenly filled with the screech of a
shell as it burst near by. Two orderlies were
carrying a youth, who, in his tattered khaki,
seemed barely twenty. Irregular spurts of
blood were gushing from a vein in his wrist.
He barely had had a chance to fight, and
now, his once-proud body maimed, he was
lying there. "To make the world safe for
democracy," they had said,-and yet there
are fewer democracies now than before the
war. To what purpose this mad rush to
reach military supremacy? Did there not

exist in European countries the glow of dis-
contentment which might easily be fanned
into the Hame of war? VVhy pour forth the
prime of American youth to satisfy petty
strife and burden future generations with
extravagant war debts? But look! the water
was changing. Circles of gold and silver
appeared against a background of green and
faded away in the rippling water. A pano-
rama of sights passed. I glimpsed the gaunt,
tear-streaked faces of small children as they
begged for food in the slums of New York.
. . Breadlines. . . The despairing faces of
farmers as they learned of the new low on
crops. . . The tense strain in Wall Street as
stocks and bonds sank to rock bottom. . .
The closing of hundreds of factories and mills
on which numerous workers were depen-
dent. . . Strikes, violence, and the destruction
of property as dissatisfied people revolted.
All this I saw, and more, before the waters
finally cleared, this time to reveal an old
man with a child on his knee, and as I
strained to hear,
" Yes, my boy," the elder said, " it's a hard
journey to reach success, and many fall by
the way. Wars, depressions, and other trials
must be survived, but the really worthwhile
things in life are those obtained with diffi-
culty. I've lived in times of strife when
people all about me were in despair, but I
never ceased to hope. I knew that depres-
sions werenit a novelty to the United States,
or even to our toil-worn world. Civilization
had survived before, why not again? They
sayf' and he chuckled, " that we're in a
depression now. Is it a depression of affairs
alone or partly of the mind? I'11 warrant
that business is poor, but isn't it perhaps be-
cause so many are afraid? Afraid to buy, to
spend, to look forward to times of prosperity?
They seem to think we're in an impossible
rut. Nonsense! H and he laughed again.
The waters cleared now and were filled
with myriad colors, like a sunrise, or a rain-
bow after a storm. . .
"She's coming to,,' they said as they looked
at the girl gasping on the hard planks of the
motorboat. I felt a new strength come into
my body, a new courage quicken my
senses. No matter what might come, I felt
I could face the future bravely. I might not
reach my goal, yet I knew that I would at
least have the satisfaction of knowing I had
Members of the Faculty: It is now too late
to prove but not to express our true appreci-
ation for your help and patience. At times
welve been exasperating, but you have en-
countered those difficult situations with the
sympathetic guidance of a friend and the
wise understanding of a counselor. We wish
to thank you for all your efforts in our be-
half and for the penetrating interest you
have shown in each of us.
Classmates: The world we face tomorrow
is one tinged with gloom. We know that.
We realize that jobs are scarce and wages
poor. We face dangers caused by hatred,
greed, and strife. We cannot reform the
world, nor do we wish to. Yet beginning
with ourselves, as individuals, let us strive
to become more tolerant, wiser, and clearer
thinking. May we, the Class of 1938, go forth
determined to do our best in the face of all
opposition. And now the moment draws
near for us to say farewell. I say goodbye
to you with, regret and express in Long-
fellow's words the feeling of you, the mem-
bers of our class, for one another:
" Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee,
Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears,
Our faith triumphant o'er our fears,
Are all with thee,-are all with thee!"

Parents, frierzds, teachers and fellow school-
In behalf of the Class of 1938, I wish to
extend a sincere welcome to you on this
occasion which means so much to us who are
about to venture into a world which is al-
most foreign to us. This evening will be
one which will be long remembered by us.
This is an event which we can look back
THE LAUREL 21
upon in later years as one of the turning
points of our lives.
Your presence here tonight is the climax
of the constant support you have given to
our class throughout its four years of high
school. As a slight evidence of our appreci-
ation of this support which has meant so
much to us, I reiterate that we sincerely
The Vivid Past
Farmington, the shire town of Franklin
County, is situated in the valley of the
Sandy River. It is naturally divided into
two portions by this river. Undoubtedly it
was the beauty and fertility of the valley
which attracted the explorers and settlers
to this river.
The explorers who first came to the Sandy
River Valley found a small tribe of Indians
at Messee Contee Qherring placej, the spot
now known as Farmington Falls. It is un-
certain when the first white man visited this
location. Tradition states that a youth by
the name of Knights was captured by
Indians and brought here. He escaped and
made his way through the wilderness to his
home. He carried such accounts of the
luxuriant vegetation of the country through
which he had traversed that he induced some
of his friends to explore the region. This
story, however, is merely tradition, but it
is certain that hunters and trappers visited
this valley long before any thought of settling
it was made.
In the autumn of 1779, two hunters from
Winthrop came here prepared to spend the
winter. They trapped for beaver, otter,
mink and sable. In the spring they made a
crude boat, and putting their valuable cargo
on board, went down the river to the Ken-
nebec and thence to their homes. They
were the first white men known to have
passed a winter in what is now Franklin
The first settlers were aided greatly by the
Indian, Pierpole, who, undismayed by the
approach of the white man, remained, the
last of a race which had once held undis-
puted sway over the hunting grounds.
Pierpole is believed to have belonged to
the Androscoggin tribe. He and his family
were living near the Falls when the first
courageous settlers came, but Pierpole soon
left and moved to Strong. The last the
settlers ever saw of him was as he paddled
his canoe down the river. Whether he went
to Canadian waters or the ocean, no man
The time chosen for the settlements on
the shores of the Sandy River was a fortu-
nate one. The settlers who came here did
not suffer from the Indians nor even the fear
of the Indians. The only savage to visit
their camp-fires was Pierpole, their friend
The year of 1781 came and found Stephen
Titcomb trapping in Farmington and his
family snowbound in Readiield. However,
when the storm subsided enough to allow
a team to get through, Mr. Titcomb returned
to Readiield to bring his family back to the
Sandy River Valley. With the families of
Titcomb, Brown, and Davis began the first
civilized life in the future town of Farm-
The growth of the town was compara-
tively rapid, for at the end of the lirst decade
the census numbered to 494 inhabitants.
Mills were operating, schools were estab-
lished and the people were nearly indepen-
dent of the outside world. Although no
definite mail route was established, a Mr.
Willis began to bring newspapers to the
township about 1790, and a few years later,
a weekly mail line was opened to Hallo-
well. Modern people would have found few
entertainments existing in those days. There
were no churches formed to act as the center
of social functions as only a few itinerant
preachers found their way to this opening
in the wilderness.
In this wilderness, however, the town
meetings were of serious importance. They
were examples of pure democracy, a govern-
ment of the people, for the people, and by
the people. They acted on articles ranging
from the amount of the salary of a minister
to the care of straying cattle.
22 THE LAUREL
The years passed swiftly for the flourish-
ing little town, and then a new need arose.
This need was for military organization.
Under the state law of that time, each town
was obliged to provide its own military
stores and equip its own militia. The train-
ing of this militia created a new diversion
for the people who whole-hcartedly supported
the proposition. A few years after the
militia was formed, a cavalry was organized.
This was done only when rumors of a war
with England were in the air in 1812. How-
ever, when war was finally declared, so far
as can now be ascertained, only two Farm-
ington men, David Bump and Elisha Iewett,
enlisted in the United States army and per-
formed actual service on the Held. The
military organizations were maintained and
a brigade review was held in 1827 with
Governor Lincoln and his staff present.
However, a few years later the only material
remnant of Farmington's military glory was
a few stones on a hill, the remains of a build-
ing for storing ammunition built in 1817,
and the abstract remnant, its name, Powder
Before many years had elapsed, churches
were established, railroads were chartered,
schools were built, and then came the crisis
which split the country into two divisions,
both embittered by sectional antagonism.
Farmington was definitely loyal, meeting all
her quotas of soldiers, nursing the wounded,
and raising money. However the years fol-
lowing the opening of the war were anxious
and troublesome times for the town. When
the news of the assassination of President
Lincoln reached Farmington, it was a signal
for mourning throughout the town.
The years rolled on with the first public
library being built, a Franklin County Sav-
ings Bank organized, and then a real dis-
aster struck. It was the great fire of 1886.
This destructive conflagration started in a
stable on Pleasant Street and swept away
nearly every building on Main Street down
to South Street. It was a calamity that will
long be remembered by those who wit-
Farmington at the present time is defi-
nitely an educational center. The Farming-
ton State Normal School was established in
1864. The high school was completed in
1906 and has been enlarged sinceg the last
addition was in 1936. The Training School
building was built in 1931.
Now the town has within its limits an
admirable public library, built in 1901 in
memory of Nathan Cutler, and the Franklin
Memorial Hospital, opened in 1929.
The personage of whom Farmington is
the proudest is Madame Lillian Nordica, a
famous opera singer who was born in this
town. Madame Nordica made her debut in
Italy and later appeared in London and in the
New York Metropolitan Opera House. Her
home, which has been kept as nearly as
possible as it was when she lived, is one of
the most interesting spots in this vicinity.
All in all, Farmington is a town of which
its citizens may be justly proud. Undoubt-
edly, because distance lends enchantment,
if Farmington were situated some 30 or 40
miles from here, we would all be anxious
to visit itg but because we live in it, we are
less likely to realize what a truly beautiful
and interesting place it is.

COURAGE T0 DARE
HE interest of the people of today in
aviation is increasing by leaps and
bounds. The airplane is taking an important
place in business and recreation. Because
of this, many high-school graduates are
planning to make one of its many branches
their life work.
Such a pilot as Amelia Earhart serves as
an inspiring example to American girls.
At the age of ten, when at the Iowa State
Fair, she saw her first airplane. It was a
thing of rusty wire and wood and did not
look a bit interesting. No wonder that she
was much more absorbed in an absurd hat
which she had just purchased. Regardless
of what psychologists might have said, in
later years she hated hats and would not miss
THE LAUREL 23
a chance to see an airplane, no matter how
rusty it was.
The next airplane she saw was at the ex-
position held at Toronto, Canada. Some
war heroes were giving exhibitions. In
1918, to relieve the monotony and to make
life more exciting, pilots would dive on
crowds at beaches and fairs. Today the De-
partment of Commerce frowns upon such
antics. Miss Earhart and a girl friend were
in the middle of the Held, somewhat sepa-
rated from the crowd. The pilot, seeing this
tempting target, dove on them for the fun
of seeing them scamper. He tried several
times. One of them ran, the other, later
to achieve world fame as an aviatrix, stood
her ground, fascinated.
On a summer vacation in California she
became very much interested in air meets.
It was at one of these that she took her first
ride, with the then unknown barnstormer,
Frank Hawkes. With this trip her flying
career began. Helped by her mother, she
bought a little second-hand plane and learned
to Hy it.
While working in a social settlement in
Boston, she received a surprising message
asking if she would like to fly the Atlantic.
She went to New York to see if she could
meet the requirements. The man who was
searching for a woman to make this trip
was George Palmer Putnam, whom she later
In Iune, 1928, after having been accepted
and after many weeks of preparation, her
plane, the " Friendshipf, with mechanic Lou
Gordon, pilot Bill Stultz and passenger
Amelia Earhart, took off from Boston Har-
bor for Newfoundland. After thirteen days
of tiresome waiting at Trepassey, Newfound-
land, conditions became satisfactory for the
crossing. The Atlantic flight began. Twenty
hours and forty minutes later, they tied up
to a bouy off Burryport, Wales.
Four years later in a three year old Lock-
heed she made a solo flight across the At-
lantic. The bad storm, the flames leaking
out around the exhaust collector ring, and
the spin caused by heavily iced wings were
the high-lights of the trip. When she arrived
at Londonderry, Ireland and landed in a
cow-pasture, not knowing the proper words
to say at such a time, she merely stated,
" I lm from America."
In April, 1935, upon an official invitation
from the Mexican government, she flew from
Burbank, California, to Mexico City. There
a superb fiesta was staged for her. Regret-
fully, because of not having so much time
there as she would have liked, she set out
for New York. Upon landing at Newark
airport, she was mobbed by a crowd from
which a couple of husky policemen tried to
rescue her. The only dilhculty was that
they lacked co-operation, and in the melee
one grasped her arm and the other her leg.
Then, to make matters worse, they started
in opposite directions.
Miss Earhart was connected with Purdue
University as a faculty member in the new
aviation department. One of her pet
schemes, which seems entirely logical, was
to have a miscellaneous workshop, labeled
" Tinkering: For Girls Only." She believed
that girls who have mechanical ability and
who donlt have a chance, as boys do, to
tinker with machines should be encouraged.
She often said she was as much concerned
with the problems and opportunities of her
Purdue co-eds as with aviation.
Mr. Putnam, who practices as well as
approves of the theory that wives should do
the work they are best fitted for, was a help-
ful and approving partner in all her projects.
Knowing her desire for a bigger and better
plane which would allow her to pioneer in
the field of aviation education and technical
experimentation, he started the wheels mov-
ing to get it for her.
ChieHy through the Purdue Research
Foundation and the generosity of manufac-
turers who seemed to think her activities
were helpful in furthering aviation and also
in overcoming feminine "sales-resistance"
to air travel, she came into possession of her
two-motor Lockheed Electra, her Hying
24 THE LAUREL
The original plans for her round-the-world
Hight were to Hy from Oakland to Honolulu,
from there to Howland Island, and then on
to Australia. Establishing a record for the
east-west crossing of 15 hours and 47
minutes, she landed at Wheeler Field, Hono-
Bad weather conditions caused a long
delay here, and then the giving way of a
shock-absorber crumpled one wing and
wiped off the landing gear at the long
awaited take-off. Undiscouraged, Amelia
took the plane back to Oakland to be re-
stored to its proper state.
Then, because of weather conditions, she
decided to reverse the direction of the flight.
On May 19, with Fred Noonan, her navi-
gator, she hopped off from Oakland on the
first lap of the flight.
Tuscon and New Orleans to Miami took
her across the continent. At Miami the
Electra had a thorough going-over. At this
point she made the statement that she in-
tended to give up her hazardous flights,
that she had a growing conviction that she
was getting old, and that now was the time
for her to make way for the younger genera-
The world watched by newspaper and
radio the flight of the daring woman, fol-
lowing her daily on her dangerous journey.
The route lay along the South American
coast, and then across the South Atlantic to
a French colony on the African shore, across
Africa, and along the coast of Arabia to
India. The next stop was Australia. The
following wireless came from New Guinea,
her last stop before crossing the Pacific.
" Amelia Earhart departed for Howland
Island at ten o'clock, beginning a 2,556-mile
Hight across the Pacihc along a route never
before traveled by an airplane."
Somehow she missed the island. So ended
the earthly career of an inimitable and
courageous woman, a true pioneer of the
ever-advancing frontier of aviation.
Miss Earhart has been severely criticized
for taking such a dangerous flight. I want
to give an excerpt from a letter to her hus-
band, which was written before a perilous
Hight, to be read if it proved to be her last
" Please know I am quite aware of the
"I want to do it because I want to do it.
Women must try to do things as men have
tried. When they fail, their failure must
be but a challenge to othersf'
In closing, may I also quote this poem
written by Amelia Earhart herself, on
Courage is the price that life exacts for grant-
The soul that knows it not, knows no release
From little things,
Knows not the livid loneliness of fear
Nor mountain heights, where bitter joy can hear
The sound of wings.
How can life grant us boon of living, compen-
For dull gray ugliness and pregnant hate
Unless we dare
The soul's dominion? Each time we make 3.
choice we pay
With courage to behold resistless day
And count it fair."

GALLOPING AWAY ON A HOBBY
ES, a hobby is the 'kind of a nag you
want to ride. It gives me the greatest
pleasure to tell you how to break one in and
go galloping over hill and dale on it. The
trite saying that " All work and no play
makes lack a dull boy " gives the reason for
a hobby in a nut-shell. More than ever before
in this age of speed and nervous tension, one
needs relaxation and the uplift that is gained
in the riding of a hobby.
Many a tired business man returning
home after a hard day at the oflice finds
rest and relaxation for tired nerves in work-
ing in a vegetable or Bower garden. A1-
though few ever become Burbanks by fol-
lowing this hobby, many do become
interested in growing some particular plant
THE LAUREL U 25
or Hower. Gardening is one of the hobbies
that bring us to a closer communion with
nature and with God.
Generally speaking, the kind of hobby you
ought to mount should be quite different
from the work you do. If your profession
is chiefly mental, you should take up a
hobby that calls for physical exercise, and
likewise, one whose work is physical gener-
ally enjoys an intellectual or brain-teasing
Children should have their hobbies as
well as Mother and Dad. Boys especially
like to collect small things, such as stamps,
marbles, pebbles, and small animals. A
striking example of this is Tom Sawyer and
his pet toad.
Radio appeals to young and old alike.
One of the first acts of a radio enthusiast is
to build a one-tube radio set. What a
triumph it is after hours of intensive work
to hear distinct voices penetrating through
the ether. And sometimes very unexpected
things result from ones hobby. A man told
me the other day what his radio hobby did
for him. He built his own two-way trans-
mitter and in using it contacted a young lady
in a neighboring foreign country. After
talking back and forth each day for some
time, he visited her and returned with her
as his bride.
Hobbies of prominent people are. doubly
interesting. Everyone is familiar with Pres-
ident Roosevelt's hobby, deep-sea fishing.
He finds relief from pressing national affairs
by retreating to his yacht for a week or two
of tranquil deep-sea fishing.
Perhaps a most unusual hobby for a man
is that of the Duke of Windsor. He knits
and crochets scarves and muliiers. When a
youngster he learned this skill from his royal
mother. This hobby is not so unprecedented
as it seems. For generations the shepherds
of Scotland have whiled away the long hours
Almost any kind of hobby you adopt will
cost you money, a little or a lot depending
on what it is and the thoroughness with
which you ride it. Therefore, one should
choose one that is within his means. Garden-
ing, wood-work, and reading are inex-
pensive, while photography, music, aviation,
and travel are considered among the more
Oftentimes it happens that what one
chooses for a hobby may later become a
vocation. Henry Ford was a machinist by
trade and his hobby was making things.
He conceived the idea of building a gasoline
buggy, or automobile as it is now called,
merely as a hobby. He was prevailed upon
by his friends to build similar cars for them.
He finally went into the business of manu-
facturing and marketing them to such an
extent that the slogan now is: Watch the
Fords go by.
Among the hobbies which interested me
was that of a country doctor who brought
forth from the depths of his pockets samples
of tatting in three threads. He declared that
he was the only tatter in the world that
could use three threads at once. He invented
his own shuttle for the purpose while re-
cuperating from a long illness.
Then there is the dentist who is the
creator of some magnificent hooked rugs.
He volunteered that he was only one of many
men who have reached prominence in an art
usually considered the field of women.
Aviation is a very recent hobby. We
modems learn to fly ships of the air much
easier than did our ancestors learn to sail
their ships of the sea. We cannot think of
the speed and comparative safety with which
these winged couriers travel over land and
sea without realizing that it is the coming
means of travel.
You perhaps know the lines of one of
Robert Browning's poems where he says,
" Grow old along with me, the best is yet
to be,,' but I would change this and say,
" Grow young along with me, the best is
yet to be.', And how can you do this?
Why, by galloping away on a hobby.

26 , THE L
ADDRESS TO UNDERGRADUATES
Iuniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen:
It is not pleasant to be critic, but since
I have been asked to give you some advice
which may be of help to you when you re-
turn to school in the fall, the following
quotation from Cicero expresses my feel-
ings: " Both to advise and to be advised
is a feature of real friendshipf, We all do
things heedlessly, not thinking of the con-
sequences, and I hope you will return to
school in the fall determined to do better.
The main purpose of the high school is
undoubtedly for study and learning, but not
for that alone. Your high school life should
contain three ranges of activitiy: intellectual,
social, extra-curricular. As you grow
mentally you will want to make more
friends, because of the broader view you will
have toward other students. Your social
activity will then be a daily event instead of
merely a special occasion. If you keep your
intellectual and social life well-balanced, you
will feel the urge to go out for extra-curricu-
lar activities: music, sports, or public
speaking. Soon your veins will thrill with
school spirit, and you won,t think school
such a bore after all.
It is surprising when we stop to realize it,
how much time we waste though every day
seems crammed with activity, but all too
often, it is with useless, ineffectual activity.
We Hit spasmodically from one thing to an-
other. Too many times we half-heartedly
tackle the easier task and hopelessly wish
the harder one were done. Before we know
it, there isnlt time enough to thoroughly
study that important assignment in chem-
istry or biology. That is why you frequently
see so many of your friends hurriedly scan-
ning a text-book during the twenty-five
minute period or a few minutes before class.
You will rarely find time to study that les-
son you didn't fully prepare last week.
Slackness in one thing has the tendency to
lead to slackness in others, and it doesn't
take long to gain the reputation of being a
Have you ever walked along a busy
street just at the rush hour when a group of
persons decide to call a conference and do
so right there and then? If you have never
encountered such a congestion, take a glance
at the bevy of girls conversing at the end of
the girls, walk just before school begins.
Will they move to let one by? Not a frac-
tion of an inch more than the Rock of
Gibraltar would! It is a very convenient
place to talk before the bell rings, but we
should show at least the common courtesy of
stepping aside when someone would like to
Now I admire a person who has a little
get-up-and-go in him, but when it comes
to getting up and going all over the building
when he should be studying just to ramble
around in order to satisfy a yearning to
travel is quite a different story. We all
know who the chronic meanderers of the
I-Iave you ever been in the library when
two so-called book worms of the human
variety were trying to whisper fOh! 50
quietlyj and then they looked up innocently
to Find the eyes of the student teacher turned
toward them? It is advisable not to use a
speaking privilege for a tete a tete either in
the library, main room, or elsewhere. More-
over, have you ever heard anyone speak right
out without permission because he thinks
the teacher librarian is his friend and will
overlook the broken rule?
In the October issue of the Reader's Digest
there was an anecdote telling of the thrill
the Serbians get from breaking glass just

this idea of pleasure. There is something
about the sound of breaking glass that is
fascinating, but will someone please tell me
where the fun comes from tearing paper into

takes every ounce of self-control to keep
our feelings under our thumb. There are
times in our school life when we all make
a mark lower than usual. Instead of throw-
ing up your hands and blaming the mark
on the teacher or on a difficult assignment
the night before in some other subject, you
should put the blame on yourself, where it
generally belongs. Life is full of pitfalls
and failures, and you might just as well

Have you ever played dodge ball? The
idea is to keep out of the path of the ball
because of the penalty to the one whom the
ball hits. There are some pupils who apply
that game to school life. Convenient illness

a difficult exam or an unprepared lesson,
but we can't always dodge distasteful as-

You are only in high school four years.
Some of you are realizing how fast time
does Hy, and how much of the profitable
things you miss. How often outside in-
terests separate you from the companionship
of class and schoolmates. Soon you lose
interest, and perhaps your ranks drop. It
is impossible to be happy deep down inside
without friendship and companionship in
connection with your business, and your
business, at the present time, is school.
Most of you enter high school in the first
or second year of your teens. With a few
exceptions that is too early in life to definitely
decide on a vocation. However, you ought
to begin to lay plans, as far as possible, in
your freshman year so that you can plan
your course of study. If you don't, when
you come to your senior year, there will be
a great many vocations and lines of busi-
ness which will appeal to you. Which are
you going to take? You must decide for
yourself, and it takes a great deal of thinking.
Have you ever heard this quotation:
"Fools' names and fools' faces are always
seen in public places "P We have all seen
some of the inscriptions written or carved
on desks or books. You wouldnit want
anyone to come into your house and mark

ADDRESS OF WELCOME-CLASS DAY
ARENTS, teachers, and friends: I am
deeply grateful for the opportunity and
the privilege of welcoming you to the long-
anticipated Class Day of the Class of 1938.
Mothers and Fathers, we want you to realize
that we appreciate your mingled feelings
at this time as you become keenly aware
that your boy or girl is steadily veering from
beneath your parental and friendly guidance.
As you have joined with us individually in
our joys and cares of past years, we invite
you to unite with us today in our facetious
reminiscence and prophecy.
W'e, the class, sincerely express to you
our gratitude for this cooperation of the
past. It is through your aid and under-
standing that many of us were able to re-
main throughout the four years.
We, as a class, are intensely proud of our
size, it is the largest to ever graduate. The
spirit of fellowship has not, however, been
28 THE LAUREL
dulled by our size but has predominately
been threaded through our association since
our initial days together.
A certain few among us have faced many
difficulties to attend high school. Some have
been obliged to live away from home.
Others, who wished to take part in extra-
curricular activities, such as sports, dra-
matics, and music, have remained late at
school and gone many miles only to help
to do their share of chores at home. Some
of us have been able to relieve the financial
strain on your pocketbooks through work-
ing for the National Youth Administration.
We are fully aware that to the teachers
we owe our genuine thanks, and to them we
extend it at this time. They have endured
patiently and understandingly our crude
pranks and obvious shortcomings.
So now, hoping that you will enjoy our
program as much as we enjoy having you
here,-on with the program!
Norman Blanchard '38.
CLASS HISTORY-CLASS OF '33
ELL, I think I'll have to spend this
evening studying. I must put the
finishing touches on the lecture I have to
give before the Portland Historical Society.
QSees package on tablej Hm, wonder what
this is? Oh, yes, it's my latest history on the
" Development of Farmington High School."
fBegins to look through bookj Here's a
picture of the Class of 'Thirty-eight. It was
quite a class at that, it had approximately
80 members. That's my old class, come to
think of it. This picture must have been
taken when we were green freshmen.
Those were the days when Norman Blanch-
ard didn't comb his hair so often. Why is
it that some fellows begin to think more of
their appearance about the time they be-
come sophomores? ,Norman was elected
president of the class that year. Dalton
Hardy was vice president. In that period
Dalton didn't have to pay for his two movie
tickets and went more than he now does.
There's Pete Hall right up beside Gwen
Richards. Those were happy days with
Pete. He did have time to become our first
Student Council representative though.
Connie McLeary was secretary, and did she
keep us busy looking up big words which
she put in her reports! Ieannice Robinson
must have been the class treasurer. When
she approached the he-men of the class with
that heart Huttering smile of hers, they never
knew whether she was going to inveigle a
date or a dollar from them. There's the
original bashful boy in the form of Richard
Morrill. But we find that he wasn't so
bashful when it came to raising cain in
partnership with cousin Dana. I recall that
I collected school dues that year and acquired
several grey hairs trying to balance the
book at the end of the year.
I 'll never forget the teachers we had when
we were freshmen. Mrs. Bryant was the
anti-"ain't " teacher. We had a good time
in her class, and no one was really afraid
of her scowl because she couldn't control the
twinkle in her eye. Mr. Gould taught us
that 3 and 2 are 7 by the means of the all-
powerful X. Miss Howard taught us all
about Cleopatra and her boy friends, Mark
Antony and Caesar. Until illness pre-
vented it, Mrs. Miner taught Latin, and
then we were under the care of Mr. Owen
Gilman, Miss Magoni, and Miss Hawkins.
That didn't help some of us who found it
obligatory to sit in the front seats,
as we hadn't delved into the dead language
too much as it was. Our friend of long
standing in the music department, Miss
Perkins, came over to high school to make
sure we still sang " do " on pitch. Mr. De-
subject that an
Wever taught commercial
held open forums on any
unprepared student might
of that year Mrs. Ryan had the art class,
and when she resigned Mrs. Webster taught
CLooks in bookj. Here's a high light!

was held. We all had a good time, and only
a few had a belt placed across their pos-

We must have passed the rest of the school
year in obscurity. When Iune came, I guess
we felt very much at home in our new en-
vironment but were as glad as infants when
the summer vacation at last arrived.
Yes, I remember the confident feeling we
had as we came back to school on Septem-
ber 9th to become silly sophomores. Here
are two girls I don't seem to know. Oh,
they are two new teachers, Miss Pinkham
and Miss Moore. Miss Pinkham taught in
the Home Economics Department. I won-
der what this snapshot is? It shows a
perfectly good biscuit and a broken sledge
hammer, and under it a note says,
" Vera Whitten's First biscuit. It passed the
testf' Miss Moore was the teacher who
taught the classes Mr. DeWever had had the
Sophomore class election consisted of ap-
proving of the oflicers of the previous year
and adding Norman Sawyer as our second
Student Council representative. Glenys
Gould was elected secretary to replace Connie
McLeary who resigned. Some of " Hank "
Applin's disciplesg such as, Dingley, Morrill,
Libby, Blanchard and Ray came into evi-
dence on the gridiron that season. We had
our first big social event of the year too, that
-of initiating the freshmen into the mill. It
sure was fun to put someone else in the
position we had been in the year before.
Due to my strength of vocal organs, I was
chosen to be master of ceremonies. Pete
Hall would have made a good one but his
voice still had the tendency of suddenly
changing from bass to soprano without any
warning. The after effects of that party
weren't so good for some of our novelty-
loving sophomores who had had their own
ideas about freshman chastisement, for they
found that certain other people had entirely
Norman Blanchard showed us another side
of his personality in the skit, "Municipal
Davenport," given at Drummond Hall just
before Christmas vacation. That was one
time when he was a man of few words while
in pursuit of a fair damsel's heart. Cljausej
Here is our contribution to the school fair.
VVe had a pawnshop. We did a good busi-
ness too as such places usually do. That
seems to be the sum of our sophomore
We at last got to be juniors. We had several
new rooms that year, so that we were just as
lost as the freshmen when told to go to room
6. Miss Tarr managed to keep us fairly well
straightened-out when she wasn't mixed up
herself. We also changed English teachers.
Little people surely do have big ideas. An-
other new teacherg it was no other than the
happy-go-lucky Miss Carter. She surely was
a peach. I often wonder whatever became
of her. Dingley had come into his rightful
place in football then. That's why Wilton
didn't beat us. A tie is better than a loss
any old time.
What other important things happened?
Oh, yes, we had free eats at the magazine
contest party that year. Glenys Gould was
the third Student Council member and Bar-
bara Robbins was elected to the position of
class scribe. On the second annual Students'
Day, Norman Blanchard was Superintendent
of Schools. He forgot his dignity, but he
said he liked his job because he didnit go
to a class all day. Red Morrill was the star
performer at the Bloomer Boys' basketball
game. He was as nimble as a centipede with
the gout. fPicture of cast of " Dust of the
Road nj Here is a picture of the " Dust of
the Road " cast. Laura Worthley, Elden
Hall and Iohn Linscott were the actors.
They surely gave a fine performance of a
difhcult play, and deserve much credit.
Here is a picture of the orchestra after it
had been to the Western Maine Music Festi-
val at Rumford. Miss Perkins surely missed
" Smally's" off-key trumpet after he gradu-
ated. Then came the greatest formal in
years, our Iunior Prom. The background
was dressed up to look like the deck of a
ship. It certainly did look good, and so did
the profits. I can't forget how satisfying it
was to see Connie McLeary while she was
preparing the scenic background crawling
around on her hands and knees with no

shoes on. She drew the water scenes and
was trying not to ruffle the fins of the fishes.
How it did rain that night, but I imagine
it added to the sea effect. QStop at picturej
Here's a picture of Barbara Robbins and
Elden Hall taken after they won top honors
in the Iunior Prize Speaking. Another
school fair and our class won the prize for
having the biggest sales returns. Last Chapel
and Graduation exercises finished up the
year, and we all hoped we would be doing
the same thing a year from then.
At last we came to the final year at F. H.
S. " Iac U Greenwood was our last member
to be added to the Student Council. For
three years we had looked forward to the
day when we would become the sophisti-
cates of the school, but when we finally
arrived there, we didn't feel any different
from when we were youngsters four years
ago. More new teachers that year, they
come and go as often as the grocery man.
Miss Crozier taught Latin. Here's a quota-
tion from Norman Sawyer. He said, " Why
didn't I take Latin four years?" Miss
Gellerson taught chemistry and tried hard
to show us the difference between H-2 O
and H-2 SO-4. Mid-years were growled
over for the last time in F. H. S. And then
came the final ceremonies of Commence-
ment. We started it all with Last Chapel,
at which time we all did a bit of struggling
with the bump in our throat. Devotional
exercises were led by Ieannice Robinson,
and the address was given by Arlyn Whit-
ney. Iune 11th we took the class trip to
Bar Harbor and had our last good time
together. The next day was the Baccalau-
reate service in which the Reverend G. D.
Moores gave us a very inspiring sermon.
At the alumni-sponscfed Commencement
Dance we danced our cares away for the
last time as members of the high school.
Then came the last two great events, the
informal Class Day exercises and the Grad-
uation. No one could blame our class
marshal and president for strutting just a
little, for he was leading a fine class through
their last duties. Then with some very
mixed emotions the class filed off the stage
at the Alumni Gym, receiving their diplo-
mas as they went out. QMusinglyj Yes,
the Class of 'Thirty-eight was certainly a
notable one. Let me think, what was it I
was going to do before I sat down here?
Oh, yes, that lecture. Well, I canyt settle
down to it now. There are too many cob-
webs of the past in my brain. Maybe some
fresh air would sweep them out. Guess I'll
go for a stroll, and then come back and do

Essence of Liberty
r RIENDS: For many of us graduation
from high school is the termination of
our formal education, though ending our
systematic study of various subjects, we shall
retain and enrich the general ideas which
we have been absorbing under routine
guidance. One of the ideals which have
been instilled in us from the time of sub-
primary education is that of respect, rever-
ence, and love of this, our country. We have
been taught and we firmly believe that the
United States is now, and we hope and pray
that it always will be, the cradle of liberty.
Our popular government is a direct con-
trast to the governments in existence before
democracy was ever known. The ancients
had their powerful kings of Egypt, rulers
of Babylon, and Caesars of Rome. Medieval
times produced tyrannical despots, and then
out of the dust of centuries came the fiower-
ing of democracy in 1775. It could be said
that the seed of democracy was sown cen-
turies before in Athens, and from the
writings of Aristotle and Plato, the fathers
of the new freedom, Montesquieu, Iohn
Locke, and Rousseau produced the political
philosophy from which Thomas Iefferson,
Iames Madison, and other early Americans
framed our Constitution.
To fully appreciate the meaning of this
important document we should always re-
member that man for untold centuries
groveled in the dust, was beaten into slavery,
THE LAUREL 31
and kept in ignorance. Emergence from this
condition was gradual, and slowly the rights
of man were established and recognized.
Our Constitution gave us the first free
government of modern times. It established
this great nation, the growth of which is
unparalleled in the history of the world.
All of us are proud of our system of govern-
ment, and we vigilantly guard the freedom
which it affords us. But many times we do
not fully appreciate the value of the docu-
ment which guarantees and protects this
When we look at the political situation in
many of the countries of the modern world,
most of us breathe a thankful sigh that we
are not slaves to an arrogant lord. In Italy
a subservient people are under the dominion
of one man, Mussolini. His will dominates
that of millions. Germany, the ancient
home of the fierce liberty-loving Germans,
of whom Tacitus, the Roman historian,
wrote and marvelled because of their sturdy
love of freedom, that same Germany clicks
its heels today at the command of Hitler.
Russia, Iapan, Rumania, and other nations
are in similar plights. Dictatorial military
leaders are blotting out popular government
on every hand. In this country as long as
the Constitution endures and is supported
by Americans, we will not lose our precious
heritage of freedom-freedom to worship
as we please, freedom to speak our thoughts,
and freedom to print them. These things
distinguish our government from the
tyrannical systems of government which are
rapidly taking many parts of the hitherto
civilized world back to the Middle Ages.
These guarantees of freedom, as I have said,
are embedded in the Constitution.
The framers of the Constitution in order
to protect and guarantee the rights of man,
which we take for granted, established a
government of three branches: executive,
judiciary, and legislative. Under the system
of checks and balances the departments
operate so that no one of them may seize the
power of government and thereby destroy
the freedom of the governed. Our repre-
sentatives in the legislative branch are
responsible to us directly. We vote for
them, and if we are dissatisfied, we may
turn them out of oliice. It is little wonder
then that when large groups make their
will known to Congress that it answers that
will rather than the will of the executive.
The executive carries out and administers
the laws which the legislative branch enacts.
The judiciary interprets the laws, and if
any law is contrary to the fundamental law,
the Constitution, the judiciary branch sets
it aside as unconstitutional. If we, the people,
wish to change the Constitution we may do
so by amending it as has been done on
twenty-one different occasions.
One of the greatest threats to our present
government is that of corrupt politics which
is not confined to one party, but may be
found in all. We know in many instances
that men in public life have betrayed the
public trust. They have used public oflices
for their own advantages, ignoring that it is
our money they are spending and that it is
our interests they are supposed to represent.
Corrupt political machines have gained
power because we have remained idly by and
have not voiced, or rather, not acted upon
our dissatisfaction. If the conditions grow
worse, some demagogue in the future will
be able to take from us the privilege of self
government. Now how may we as citizens
combat the power of corrupt politics?
ldealistic but practical countrymen believe
that the influence of corrupt politics may be
virtually stamped out by an alert and vigi-
lant public. lmpurity in public life exists
because people are apathetic and do not take
an interest in the welfare First, of the com-
munity, then, the state, and Finally, the
nation. We do not Qpect that we can bring
into being a Utopia within one generation,
but we know that many of the imperfections
of our society may be eradicated if we all
become vigilantly awake and conform to our
Under dictatorship laws are hurriedly en-
acted without the slightest thought of the
people's desire. The popular form of gov-
32 THE LAUREL
ernment, such as ours affords the people a
chance to vote indirectly, through their
representatives, for their laws. This process
is slow and therefore amendments and alter-
ations are made slowly. When completed,
these laws are those of, by, and for the
This opportunity of self government is
established in our Constitution. We must
realize the responsibility that goes along
with it because it is not the document alone,
but the alert social and political responsi-
bility of our fathers which has gone hand in
hand with the great truths laid down in the
Constitution that has brought to us blessings
unparalleled in the history of the world.
Let us make new resolves that we will
keep the faith of our forefathers, will live
as they would have us live, conscious of our
responsibility to protect our government
which, in turn, preserves for us our dearly

Carlton: What,s happening now?
Mabel: That Gwen Richards sure is

last week, and two parties the week before.
And guess who it's for this time.
Carlton: It isnlt that stuffy old professor,
Camille Marquis, with all his Doctor of
Science degrees trailing behind him, is it?
I'll never forget the last time he was here.
Science may be science and all that, but
when it comes to dissecting the family
housepets he ld better go back to college.
Mabel: No, we've another prize this time.
It's that breath-taking, daredevil, parachute-

National Air Meet in Cleveland last week.
Carlton: Youire telling me! Every paper
you pick up has pictures of him and his

chief mechanic, Maylon Wilbur. They say
a lot of credit for Freddie's success should
be placed on the shoulders of the mechanic.
Maylon came by that job rightly. Even in
high school days he used to take everything
conceivable apart just to see what made it
tick. This should be quite a party with
such a spectacular guest. Did you find out
who else will be among the honored few?
Mabel: Yes, Miss Richards was evidently
making out a guest list during lunch be-
cause I found it on the table after she left.

we don't. She apparently doesn't believe
we're capable. She had Harvey Abbott's

ways wanted to taste his Southern fried

Carlton: Dalton Hardy, too, is in the
vicinity of Cape Cod. He plans to be re-
turned from his Florida cruise in time for
the party. He is scheduled to bring Sara
Tobin, the famous New York model.
Mabel: Speaking of Sara reminds me of
Bunny Cox, her sidekick during high school.
Nowadays, Bunny is Missouri's most promi-
nent osteopath. It is a satisfaction to know
that she returned to her home state and
achieved her ambitions.
Carlton: Oh, by the way, the big auto
race, the Indianapolis Speedway, is coming
off soon. Robert Pinkham, otherwise known
as the Cyclone, has been the runner-up for
the past three years and seems to be the fav-
orite to win this year.

list has made a name for herself in the

first appearance on the stage. The scene
was a garden in the moonlight. The music
was soft and dreamy. He approached his
ladylove to take her gently into his arms.

Hour. From the way Leland used to drawl
one can hardly picture him as the Huent and
peppy announcer who introduces Phyllis,
the star of the program.
Mabel: Star! Why Phyllis is an artiste.
When she draws the bow on the strings of
her violin, people from all corners of the
earth listen, enchanted, to her music.
Carlton: Say, we have a comedian here
who was in our class. Harley Oliver de-
cided to become a ventriloquist. I suppose
Harley will have to have his dummy, Wise
Cracker, on his knee during dinner. The
two have become so inseparable that they get
homesick when apart. Have you heard who
are to be the entertainers tomorrow evening?
Mabel: You know our old pal, Melvin
Wade, has gone into opera? Well, he is
going to be the singer. I always thought his
voice would be famous some day after the
wonderful training received by its everlasting
arguments with the teachers.
Carlton: If Melvin is going to sing, Lewis
McKechnie's String Ensemble must be ac-
companying him. He left the farm because
of his love of music.
THE LAUREL 35
Mabel: Two others who left the farm
for more exciting careers are Leon Yeaton
and Bernard Gilbert. Lions seemed more
momentous to Leon than cows so he joined
an expedition and went to Africa. How-
ever, the first lion that he saw terrified him
so that he changed his mind and decided
cows were better after all. Bernard entered
the last Boston Marathon, but he got OH the
course and they hunted three days before
he came to light.
Carlton: Yes, I know. They finally
located him at Glennis Hutchinson's poultry
farm on the outskirts of Boston. It is she
who supplies Beacon Hill with its Sunday
Mabel: Glennis and Phyllis Melvin are
still the great friends they used to be. In
order to be together, Phyllis managed to get
a job as society reporter on a Boston news-
Carlton: Arlene Nile is now a cartoonist.
Her clever sketches appear alike in news-
papers, magazines and books.
Mabel: Books! Books bring only one
thing to my mind-Carlton Wade in all
his glory as critic for the Book-of-the-Month
Club. All his high school time, spare and
otherwise, was spent in reading.
Carlton: I guess you forget about Carl
Heath. He deals with books-both in
black and red. He is a certified public
Mabel: Here's Rachel Parker on the guest
list. She surely turned out to be a sensation.
One can scarcely imagine her as a mountain
climber. Seeing she sticks to the heights,
I expect she will arrive by plane.
Carlton: Probably she will come on the
New England Clipper. I hear Dana Dingley
is chief pilot. He was the first man to ac-
complish the daring feat of soloing across
the Sandy River.
Mabel: Glenys Gould, the newly crowned
tennis queen, plans to come that way. I
guess her tennis ability is second only to
her skill in driving her father's milk truck.
Carlton: I hear she was pinched for
speeding the other day by Kenneth Tibbetts,
the state cop in this district. The way he
used to drive makes me wonder!
QLook at 1ist.j
Mabel: Qreadingj Leah Stinson. . .Marcia
Storer. Of all the jobs Marcia ever picked
-to be a model for a Dresden China doll.
Carlton: And Leah Stinson as a 'well-
known architect is a bit of a surprise.
Mabel: I'll have you know Leah Stinson
is a member of the firm Robinson, Hager-
strom 8: Stinson, incorporated at The Home-
makers Agency. The interior of the pros-
pective home is designed by Ieannice Robin-
son. Her unique and original arrangements
have set a new vogue in interior decoration.
Carlton: Something of a new vogue has
been established in landscape gardening by
Mabel Hagerstrom. The way she sets out
those flowers and trees is a crime.
Mabel: We should also mention the junior
assistant, Bernice Durrell, who does the odd
jobs. She is demother, window-washer,
termite-eradicator and carpet-sweeperg in
brief, a Iill-of-all-trades.
Carlton: With such an illustrious gather-
ing dropping in on us so shortly, I'd better
start polishing the family silver.

fSusy enters with her arms full of miscel-
laneous objects taken from the attic. She is
wearing an apron and has a cloth about her

head. She has evidently been cleaning. She
sinks into a chair.j
Susy: I thought that I was never going
to get that attic cleaned, but it's done, and
I'm all played out. It,s a mystery to me
where all this trash came from.
CElmer, who is dressed in working clothes,
enters from cellar. He is carrying a bushel
basket and a bicycle tire.j
Elmer: Well, that's one less job I,ve got
to think about: that cellar's good for an-
other fifteen years. How's the attic coming?
Susy: All done! But what shall we do
with this junk?
Elmer: Dump it.
Susy: But what's the matter with this
fish line? I found it upstairs. Someone
probably could use it.
Elmer: Yeh, that fellow, Kenneth Tib-
betts, who used to room here. He's out of
town most of the time. Guess he needs a
new line to hook a local gal on.
Susy: These aren,t really ours to throw
away when you come to think about it.
We really should try to return them to their
Elmer: In the Fifteen years we've had this
rooming and boarding house, there hasn't
been one person who has left without forget-
ting something. Iust a bunch of rattle-

Elmer: Do you think we're millionaires?
It would cost us a small fortune to send
these all over the United States. We'll send
them collect or dump them.
Susy: It's all right by me.
Elmer: Here, Hazel Lunny left this tire.
She'll probably need it by now for that
bicycle of hers ......
Susy: Elmer, wasn't this the car that
Leon Yeaton bought right after he smashed
Elmer: Smashed his brother's car? First
I've heard about it. But you're the boss,
Susy-Q. If you say so, it's so.
Susy: You're right. I'll send this beaut
of a streamlined car to Leon. As a work
of art it is matchless. I love the lines .....
I wonder how these matches ever happened
to be in the attic? It's a wonder the house
didn't burn down.
Elmer: They ought to go to Arthur Libby
for his matchless disposition. You'd go a
long way before you'd find a fellow as good-
Susy: This bus looks as though it's
traveled a long way over some wavy roads.
I bet that Richard Blodgett must have carted
the Temple bunch around in this ......
Elmer: This boat is a water bus that has
been riding the waves.
Susy: Bernice Durrell must have left that.
I always envied her her natural waves.
Elmer: I remember before you had your
permanent, your hair would be straight as
a string whenever you got caught in a shower
without your umbrella.
Susy: That reminds me that I found this
parasol in the attic. Darrell Bryant can use
that so that he won't get sunburned when
he sings so realistically " Sunshine in Rain-
Elmer: He sure had a swell voice. I
imagine that it has taken him places .....
This can of peaches takes the spot with me.
Why not have them for supper?
Susy: No, Dorris Currier always had a
peach of a complexion. We ,ll send them to
her ...... Didn't you find anything else
down cellar that we could have for dessert?
Elmer: Yeh, how about these preserves?
Susy: Vera Whitten always liked those
when she boarded here, probably because
she was so well-preserved looking ......
How would those raspberries be for supper?
Elmer: No, I have a use for those. I've
always wanted to give that boisterous fel-
low, Lester Small, the raspberries. Here
they are ...... Gee, I'm starved! Canlt
we eat now?
Susy: Well, I've been busy all afternoon,
it won't be much, but I'll see what I can dig

up. You can be deciding whom these be-
long to. CSusy exits.j
Elmer: fPicks up a tobaoco can and
shakes it-then he looks inside.j I'll be
jiggered! Here are those worms that I dug
the other night to go fishing with. " The
early bird catches the worm." The only
early riser we ever had here was Iuanita
LaBree. She was always on hand way ahead
of anyone else. That's a good fault to have.
. . . . . Where in the dickens did these false
hands come from? Probably one of
Susy-Q's practical jokes before I ever stepped
into the picture. I'll get rid of them before
she sees them and tries any funny business
on me. fPuts the hands togethenj Hand

we've had this candy? Guess I'll take a
chance on it. QEats a piece., Not bad.
Kinda sweet though. " Sweets to the
Sweet." It's as plain as day. Sara Tobin
gets these. She's a sweet kid. fSees a silver
dollar on the table.j Well, where did this
silver dollar come from? QSusy enters carry-
ing the following things: a peanut, heart,
carrots, animal crackers, an egg, milk toast,
a banana, sugar, a tongue, and spice cake.j
Hey, where did you get this silver dollar?
Susy: I found it in an old coat that was
hanging in the attic. I guess that we can
find a use for it. I-Iere's what I picked up
for lunch. Quite an assortment. I hustled
this milk toast together for you. Eat it
while it's hot. V
Elmer: So I remind you of Casper
Milquetoast in the funnies, do I? I'm not
that timid, but Robert Pinkham just about
takes the cake for copying Casper's faint-
Susy: Could you eat any of this spice cake
Elmer: No, it's too snappy for me.
Susy: Gwen Richards gets this then, be-
cause she takes the cake for being a snappy
dresser ...... What did you bring that box
of spice up for?
Elmer: I didn't think it could be much
good, it was in the supply closet and cov-
ered with dust. Phyllis Melvin had a kind
of spicy disposition.
Susy: Yes, a sort of pleasing mixture of
" sugar and spice, and everything nice."
Elmer: That's a nice, fresh-looking bunch
Susy: This goes to Maylan Wilbur. Re-
member how upset he used to get when Carl-
ton called his hair "carroty-red"?
Elmer: Yes, I remember! ..... Is that a
Susy: Of course, you don't suppose I'd
feed you a rotten egg. It's perfectly good.
Harley Oliver was always a good egg to
have around. He gets it.

round gal, good in about everything:
sports, scholarship, and so forth-and so
Susy: This ball's all round too. Guess it
Elmer: Have we a handle that Hts this
Susy: No, I don't know whatever became

Worthley for she has a good head on her
Elmer: Leon Heminway has a good
thumb on his hand. It gets him places.
About every night I go out, I see him
thumbing his way to Wilton. Better give
him this extra thumb in case his gets over-
Susy: I wonder if Elden Hall ever felt
overworked as a lady's man. He was quite
a heart breaker. This issue of the " Wom-
an's Home Companion " fits him to a "t."
Elmer: I don't think this heart is worth
Susy: Oh, it must be. Why not give it to
Evelyn Seavey? She was always pretty dis-
tant, hid her heart from us. Now she'll
have one to wear right where we can see it.
She'll have to express her real feelings now.
Elmer: This tongue expresses " the gift of
gab " to me.
38 THE LAUREL
Susy: That goes to Mabel Hagerstromg
she always bubbled over with cheerful chat-
Elmer: Norman Rollins could have done
with some of her chatter.
Susy: Yes, he was our mystery boarder,
always a riddle to me. I guess this book of
riddles that I found in the attic belonged to
him ...... What are we going to do with
this joke book that I picked up in one of
Elmer: I always admired that rare smile
of Glennis Hutchinson's.
Susy: This joke book would make her
cute little smile come out more often ......
Here's a cute little lone peanut.
Elmer: Marjorie Rollin was pretty short.
Come to think of it, I guess she was the
shortest boarder we ever had. This little
peanut's the thing for her ...... What kind
of thing do you call this?
Susy: Thatis a teething ring. Ruth
Parker should have that to bite instead of
her Finger nails ......
Elmer: Some of these animals in this box
of animal crackers look real enough to bite.
Better turn these over to Walter Simpson:
he liked to dissect animals ......
Susy: Hereis a miniature library. Carl
Heath was our book worm. Bet he'd like to
dig into these books. Who was that girl
who roomed here the same time as Carl?
The one who left this motto in her room:
" Speech is silver: silence is golden, Speech
is human, silence is divine "P
Elmer: I know. It was Annette Weston.
She has probably missed that ...... You
wouldn't miss this banana if I ate it, would
Susy: Not if you gave me half of it.
Elmer: It'd do Harvey Abbott good to
slip on this banana peel, then he'd have to
relax and let himself go. He always looked
Susy: This ballet costume looks far from
stolid. It's kind of Hui-'fy and graceful, isn't
Elmer: Graceful? I guess Richard Mor-
rill, that loosely-hung strawberry blond,
should have it to show him what grace is.
Susy: fLooking in mirror., Boy! this
mirror shows up the defects.
Elmer: Depends upon who's looking in it.
Susy: Why not send this to Donald
Rowe, then he can see himself as others see
him. Come and get it, tall, dark and hand-
Elmer: This pan is as bright as a mirror.
Leland Walker needs this to brighten the
expression on his pan.
Susy: Norman Robbins needs these
tweezers to reveal the expression on his
physiog. That jet black beard would hide
Elmer: Someone must have used this
false beak when going to a masquerade to
hide his own.
Susy: I remember: it was Marcia
Storer. She wanted to cover her cute little
pug nose so that she wouldn't be recognized.
. . . . . These overalls werenit worn at a
masquerade. Bunny Cox never was much
of a petticoat lassieg she left these as a relic
of her tomboy days.
Elmer: Bob Watson must have left this
petticoat as a reminder of his petticoat-fever
days. He could serve as a model for modern
Susy: Talking about models! I always
thought Dalton Hardy was a pattern of a
20th century Beau Brummelg so is Charlie
McCarthy. Here's your new master,
Elmer: Charlie took the spot light on the
radio, but Arlyn Whitney took the prize
here for her blues singing. She has made
quite a record. We'11 give her this box of
cracker jacks because she was such a cracker
jack at plaintive melodies ......
Susy: Here's this record. It's a good one
too. That certainly must belong to Betty
Vose for she had an excellent record of A'sg
it never went to her head though: she kept
her feet on the ground.
Elmer: fPicking false feet out.j These
false feet, size 15, would keep anybody

Susy: Carlton Wade's a self-made man,
has stood on his own feet. Here are a
couple of spare doggies for him to throw his
weight on for a change.
Elmer: Here's some scrap iron that ought
to be good to hold something down.
Susy: Betty Smith spent most of her time
up in the air when she was here, cruising in
a silver plane. This will hold her down.
Elmer: Who left this silver polish?
Susy: I don't know who left it, but I
know who needs it. He lives right in town.
Melvin Wade's technique with the fairer sex
could stand polishing. Take it away,
Elmer: Here's something else that will
brighten things up, Dutch Cleanser.
Susy: I'm going to send that Dutch
Cleanser to Lemert Wade to help him keep
that school boy complexion bright and shiny.
Elmer: This mask ought to be wrapped
around somebody's map. I bet Bernard Gil-
bert would be glad to have this when he
feels that rosy tint creeping up around his
Susy: I think that these are the cutest
little dwarfs. These are Happy, Bashful,
and Sleepy. This is Happy.
Elmer: That one welll send to Rachel
Parker. She always looked like a gay little
miss as she went swinging down the street.
Susy: This one is Sleepy.
Elmer: That goes to Ernest Newton. I
used to go to school with him. He was a
kind of sleepy bird, especially in history
Susy: And this one is Bashful. He looks
kind of nice, though. Norma Phillips
used to look nice and bashful when she
was here. I'll have to send him to her,
though 'I hate to part with himg he has such

glasses go to you to cover up those luminous
lamps of yours. The only time when
you're not using them is when you are

sleepier than ever.

he'll take the hint and stay awake when he
Elmer: fPicks up a miniature owl., This
wise old owl reverses thingsg he sleeps in
the daytime and stays awake at night.
Susy: Iune Cunningham believes the best
part of the day is the night. Here's a palsy-
walsy for her.
Elmer: QHolds up a feather., This looks
as if some bird has lost a feather. Probably
it was the pride of the cock of the walk, or
maybe, of the hen of the walk. Sure, hen
of the walk. That goes special delivery to
Susy: If Lewis McKechnie had only
parked his car out by the front walk, he
wouldn't have been stuck in the mud in the
back yard so often.
Elmer: This chain will help him out of
future muddy situations.
Susy: You look as if you've been in some
Elmer: Yeh, that Iones kid practically
smeared the cellar with it when he was over
here last week, and here's a pail of mud
that he left as a souvenir.
Susy: We'll send that to Freddy McLeary
to get even for some of the mud slinging
he did in that gossip column of his.
Elmer: Some of those stories will stick
Susy: They're not the only thing that
will stick. This flypaper has a clinging qual-
ity to it.
Elmer: Phyllis Simpson stuck pretty well
to her studies and kept her rank pretty high
too. This will recall memories of her stick-
to-ative days ......
Susy: I imagine that Leah Stinson would
like this cotton batting to recall the days
when she and Pauline and Avis Cotton were
inseparable. They were a game bunch.
Elmer: Glenys Gould was about the gam-
est roomer we ever had. She was a depend-
able sport in anything, either on the top or
at the bottom.

Susy: This gameis the thing we send her
Elmer: These suspenders are good, de-
pendable things to have around, and so was
Norman Blanchard dependable, reliable,
and adjustable. Better give these to good
Susy: Here's a good sole that somebody
could use. Dana Dingley is a good old soul.
Guess it goes to him ...... Marjorie Craig
was a dear soul to have around. I'll send
her this deer to remind her of the fact that
we always thought so.
Elmer: I think that Madeline Moody was
a pretty likable kid.
Susy: Yes, she was kind of comfortable
to have around and to mingle with. This
doll goes to the good kid.
Elmer: Lucille Robbins was a sort of lone
wolf, wasn't much of a mixer. This mixing
spoon will convey the idea that we'd like to
see and hear more of her.
Susy: We never heard much from Arlene
Nile. This cowbell makes enough noise for
itself and her too. Guess she can wear this
as a locket so welll know when she's around.
. . . . . Well, Elmer, that's one thing that I
could never say about you. I always know
when you are around. You're always talk-
ing about your old Hames. I found some of
your literature up in the attic. Here it is,
" Book of Flirtations." You can refresh
your memory with this.
Elmer: After that spiel I think I need
something to refresh me. Coca-Cola! The
very thing, the pause that refreshes!
Susy: You can't have that. Norman
Sawyer was always a refreshing, friendly
individual to have around. That Coca-Cola
is for him.
Elmer: Well, we're rid of everything ex-
cept the curtains and the flashlight, and the
Susy: W'e could use those curtains if
they only had ruflles on them.
Elmer: They make me think of Inez Gil-
man-calm, poised and unruffled.
Susy: We can call it a day as soon as we
get rid of this flashlight and the dollar.
Elmer: Myrtle Foster's quick as a Hash
and bright as a dollar. Guess we'll give
Myrtle the flashlight, and I'lI pocket the
Susy: Say, why donit we use that dollar
of mine to go out and get a lunch. I'm too
tired to get supper. This has been a strenu-
Elmer: You said a mouthful. I guess I
can find Fifty cents more for the general
fund if I dig deep enough. A dollar and a
half ought to buy us a couple of juicy steaks.
Susy: Come on, then, if we're going.
Hop into your glad rags, and I'll get on some
fresh war paint.

There were five members of the class who
took part in the radio amateur, " We 're
On The Air."
The sophomores are now looking for-
ward to Commencement week and the jun-

lT'H a total enrollment of 69 stu-
dents the class of 1941 was launched
upon its educational career. Twenty-seven
of this number registered in the General
Course, 25 in the College Preparatory
Course, 12 in the Commercial Division, and
5 in the Home Economics Department.
Members from outside towns total 14. The
class has now been reduced to 615 eight
pupils have left school or moved away.
The class officers elected to lead the
Freshman Class are these:
President Richard Jones
Vice President Earl Ellsworth
Secretary Beverly Robbins
Treasurer Margaret Knapp
Elaine Smith, Stanley Robash, and Chester
Keene were elected as the executive com-
mittee. Mary Whitney is the representa-
tive to the Student Council.
The first year class was properly initi-
ated to Farmington High at the Freshman
Reception. Each member was required to
present himself in a juvenile costume,
Elaine Smith and Dudley Stewart being
selected as the " most youthful." These
youngsters were asked many embarrassing
questions concerning various subjects, and
directed to play childish games, to amuse
the sophisticated upper-classmen.
A large percentage have participated in
the various activities and sports during the
year. Ten boys went out for football, 15
for basketball, 10 for baseball, and five for
track. Stanley Robash and Benny Berry
have proved to be outstanding in all the
THE LAUREL 43
major sports. Earl Sawyer has shown
unusual ability as a cross country runner.
Three girls went out for baseball, and
five for basketball.
Two members were in the radio show,
" We 're On The Air." Five played instru-
ments at the Hill-Billy Social.
There were six public speaking artists
discovered among the iirst year students,
Patricia DeWever showing exceptional
talent in dramatics.
Eight pupils are serving on the Hi-Life
Musical activities have evidenced favor
among the freshmen. Ten play in the
orchestra, live in the band, and a large
number are in the chorus.
No real serious illnesses have been re-
ported, although Rita Marquis and Paul
Hodgkins lost considerable school time.
In concluding this report, may we say,
as a class, that we have truly enjoyed our
first year as students of this school. We
also wish to inform you, at this time, of
our intention to render any service under
the " gray and blue," which may be of
benefit to good old F. H. S.

out the season. No trial debates were held
except among the members of the club.
The question for debate was: " Resolved
that the several states should adopt a uni-
cameral system of legislature."
In the Hates League debates the aFF1rma-
tive team, consisting of Phyllis York '39,
llarbara Robbins '38, and alternates
Theresa Roderick '39 and Helena Nicker-
son '40, was defeated by the Phillips nega-
tive team by a 2-1 decision. The negative
team, consisting of Glenys Gould '38,
Jacqueline Greenwood '38, and alternate
Eileen Greenwood '40, was defeated by the
Leavitt alitirmative team by a 2-l decision.
The speakers did a fine piece of work and
the defeats can be credited to the fact that
there was insuflicient time for preparation.
The club members went to Lewiston and
heard the linals of the debates.
The club members wish to express their
appreciation for the coaching of Mr. Gould
and the help of Nliss Tarr.

ITH one of the toughest schedules in
years, Farmington High's Grey-
hounds again came through with a nearly
perfect record. Out of eight games they
won live, lost two, and tied one.
The 'great rival, Wilton, took the annual
struggle between the ancient rivals by a
small margin of 7 points.
With half of a star team gone, Mr.
Applin brought another one along that
matched if not surpassed the last year's
team. Credit is clue him for his never fail-
ing efforts toward a better team and to the
boys who turned out so faithfully.

THE Farmington Greyhounds played in
-one league only this year, the Twin Valley
League. With a large amount of green
material to work in this year, Mr. Applin
has had a battle on his hands to turn out a
team. All in all the team has done a pretty
,good job against the tough competition it
came up against.

FARMINGTON has one of the biggest and
best track teams it has ever seen. There
are very few things in which the team
-could not stand up to a very strong team.
Marquis has been especially outstanding in
throwing the discus, and he also is able to
throw the hammer a championship distance.
There were two meets, one a joint meet
'with Wilton, Phillips, and ZMexico, and a
single with Wilton, in which Farmington
won by a wide margin.
THE "overlanders" participated in sev-
eral meets and were quite successful.
Without any great amount of material to
work with in the beginning, Coach Gould
had to use all the tricks in the bag to work
up a usable team. Two meets were held
with New Sharon, a joint meet with Wil-
ton, New Sharon and the Greyhound har-
riersg a joint meet with Farmington, Wil-
ton and Phillipsg and the boys ran in the
County Meet against men from Wilton,
New Sharon, jay, Strong, and Phillips.
THE girls' basketball team made a fine
showing this year. It was first under the
leadership of Miss Crozier, and then Mr.
Gould was their mentor. Their two
greatest games were pushing under the
teams from Mexico and Berlin High
Schools. The team started off slowly, but
it soon picked up and from then on it kept
to its winning streak.

THE girls' softball team has been entirely
successful this year under the guidance of
Miss Crozier. The girls have played
against several of the surrounding towns
and have come out on top most of the
time. Prospects are good for another
year too, for many of the best players will
be here then.

GIRLS' FIELD HOCKEY
AN old sport in Farmington High was
re-introduced by Miss Crozier this year,
that of field hockey. There were several
games with Wilton and inter-class games.
A sport of this sort is always acceptable to
F. H. S. students as it is the only way for
A, Libby, C. Kendall
a majority of them to get any form of gym-
nastics. We hope to see it continued in
MR. GOULD brought tennis to Greyhound
grounds for its first trial this year. As
the greater part of the material was green,
there was no attempt to make out a regu-
lar schedule. There will be only matches
between teams and one big match with
Wilton which has a large and well organ-
ized tennis team. There was no lack of
enthusiasm and about 40 members of the
different classes turned out.
