TT VALEDICTORY Reverie 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 design. 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 The air 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 20 THE LAUREL 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 tried. 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!" Constance McLeary '38. TY SALUTATCRY Parents, frierzds, teachers and fellow school- ?7'lllfC'5.' 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 welcome you. 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 County. 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 knows. 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 and ally. 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- ington. 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 House Hill. 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- nessed it. 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. Norma Vose '38. 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 married. 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 laboratory. 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- lulu. 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- tion. 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 flight. " Please know I am quite aware of the hazards. "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 " Couragef' n Courage is the price that life exacts for grant- ing peace. The soul that knows it not, knows no release From little things, ir Knows not the livid loneliness of fear Nor mountain heights, where bitter joy can hear The sound of wings. ri How can life grant us boon of living, compen- sate For dull gray ugliness and pregnant hate Unless we dare fi The soul's dominion? Each time we make 3. choice we pay With courage to behold resistless day And count it fair." Iacqueline Greenwood '38, 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 hobby. 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 by knitting. 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 costly ones. 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. Glenys L. Gould '38. 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 shirker. AUREL 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 get by. 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 school are. 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 for sheer enjoyment. I can sympathize with 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 tiny bits until it looks like confetti, and then covertly dropping it on the Hoor or depositing it in another person's desk? Missives which are of such private nature that it is necessary to tear them into minute particles in order to keep their contents hidden from inquisitive eyes should not be THE LAUREL Q 27 in circulation in the school. At this time a definition of wastebasket might be appro- priate. According to Mr. Webster it is "a basket to hold scraps, waste paper, etcf' The "etc.', is Mr. Websterls, not mine. No one wants it said of him that he can't " take itfl We all have occasions when it 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 learn in high school to face a low mark or punishment and blame no one but yourself, as to have to learn to do it after leaving school. 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 may seem to be an easy way to get around a difficult exam or an unprepared lesson, but we can't always dodge distasteful as- signments now or later. 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 up the furniture. Moreover, you wouldnlt deface your own property. Although the school is owned collectively, that is, it is public property, it is your personal duty to respect and take care of it individually. Slightly changing the words of a seven- teenth century poet, I shall say, " Yet, if in my desire to do you service, I humbly offered my advice fbut still under correc- tionj, I hope I shall not have incurred your high displeasure." Then to come back to dear old Cicero, " He loves who advises. Farewell and be- waref' Laura Worthley '38. fr 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. TY 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- arithmetic and subject that an mention. Part 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 the subject. CLooks in bookj. Here's a high light! Along in Ianuary the Freshman Reception was held. We all had a good time, and only a few had a belt placed across their pos- terior. THE LAUREL 29 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 year before. 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 'different ideas. 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 labors. 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 so I THE LAUREL 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 some work. Darrell Bryant '38. ORATION 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, .4' 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 freedom. 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 responsibilities. 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 people represented. 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 cherished liberty. Elden Hall, Ir. '38.

Carlton jumps up and stiffens at the sound of footsteps. Carlton: Oh, it's you. I though it was the madam coming to say, 'K Wade, loaling again? " Mabel: No, you're safe this time. fSlides tray onto table., At last lunch is over and everybody has gone out for the afternoon. Am I tired! QDraws chair and sits.j Guess I'll leave those dishes on the table and sit down a while and rest. What's more, welll need a good rest before we're through. Carlton: What,s happening now? Mabel: That Gwen Richards sure is showing class lately. Party this week, party 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- jumping aviator, Freddie McLeary. He re- ceived Hrst prize for stunt flying at the National Air Meet in Cleveland last week. Carlton: Youire telling me! Every paper you pick up has pictures of him and his 34 THE LAUREL 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. Let's look it over. QLean over to look down list togetherj Carlton: Do we have to cook for Robert Pinkham. . . Mabel: Qreadingj Sara Tobin. . . Harley Oliver. . . Carlton: Glenys Gould? Those fussy people? Mabel: Well, I should hope to tell you we don't. She apparently doesn't believe we're capable. She had Harvey Abbott's whole telegraph office trying to locate Darrell Bryant, the famous chef. Carlton: Did she get him? I have al- ways wanted to taste his Southern fried chicken, candied sweet potatoes, butter- scotch pie smothered in an inch of whipped cream. Mabel: Oh, please!!! After a whole morning's work, Harvey finally found him cooking turtle soup on a beach down on Cape Cod. 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. Mabel: And another who is on the guest list has made a name for herself in the Middle West. Iuanita LaBree has become one of the most beloved and outstanding figures in the Held of social service. Her work is in the crowded slum areas through- out Ohio. fBoth look at guest list., Mabel: Well, if it isnit Elden Hall! Carlton: Remember the night we went to the theatre in New York? It was Elden's 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. The audience grew tense and then- Mabel: And then Pete Hall sneezed! Carlton: Here are Phyllis Simpson and Leland Walker, too, who both appear every Saturday night on the Limburger Cheese 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 dinners. 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- paper. 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 accountant. 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.

She is wearing an apron and has a cloth about her 36 THE LAUREL 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 owners. 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- brains. Susy: I suppose we can send the things to them. 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 his brother's? 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- natured ...... 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- bow Valley." 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 '57 THE LAUREL 37 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 in hand! That's Iohnny and Ieannice. fElmer takes a piece of candy from a box of it which is on the tablej VVonder how long 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- hearted timidity. Susy: Could you eat any of this spice cake for dessert? 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 of carrots. 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 fresh egg? 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. Elmer: Iackie Greenwood was a good all- round gal, good in about everything: sports, scholarship, and so forth-and so forth. Susy: This ball's all round too. Guess it fits. her. Elmer: Have we a handle that Hts this mop head? Susy: No, I don't know whatever became of it. That mop head should go to Laura Worthley for she has a good head on her shoulders. 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- worked. 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 saving. 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- ter. 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 the trunks? 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 you? 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 so stolid. Susy: This ballet costume looks far from stolid. It's kind of Hui-'fy and graceful, isn't it? 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- some. 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 anything. 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 Romeos. 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, Charlie. 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 down. THE LAUREL 39 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, Melvin. 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 ears ...... 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 class. 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 expressive eyes. Elmer: So have you, Susy-Q. These dark 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 asleep. Susy: This night shirt makes me feel sleepier than ever. Elmer: Looks like Camille Marquis to me. Susy: It's going to him anyway. Maybe he'll take the hint and stay awake when he ought to. 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 Connie McLeary. 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 mud. 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 too. 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. 40 THE LAUREL Susy: This gameis the thing we send her then. 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 old Norm. 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. N. 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 dough. 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 dollar. 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- ous day. 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.

'FT soPHoMORE CLASS NOTES HE Class of '40 began its sophomore year on September 7th with 45 girls and 34 boys, making a total of 79 pupils en- rolled. The total enrollment has now been reduced to 72. Early in the school year we elected these class ofiicers: President Arthur Russell Vice President Gordon Gould Sggrgfgry Elaine Treasurer Carolinn Adams The executive committee consists of three members: Eileen Wade fchairmanj, Harold Grant, and Lorraine Jalbert. The class re-elected Ralph Gray to rep- resent the group in the Student Council, and Mildred Blodgett was chosen as the second representative. For the annual school fair, the following committee was appointed: Marion Sawyer, Chairman, Carolinn Adams, Shirley Frary, Carroll Collins, Arthur Russell, and Lor- raine Holman. Gur class has been very well represented in many school activities, as follows: Or- chestra 14, Band 4, Girls' Glee Club 12, Boys' Glee Club 6, Hi-Life Board 5, Art 7, Football 7, Boys' Basketball 7, Girls' Bas- ketball ll, String Ensemble 6, Boys' Base- ball 6, Girls' Softball 9, Track 4, Cross Country 4, Boys' Hockey 2, Girls' Hockey 4, and Debating 2. The Sophomore Class feels proud to have so many of the students interested in music and so outstanding in musical activities. 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- ior year of F. H. S., although they have had a very pleasant and satisfying year. Martha Osborne '40. FRESHMAN CLASS 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 Staff. 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.

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.

Besson, Coach Applin FOOTB ALL 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. Summary: F. H. S. 0 Gardiner 13 F. H. S. 7 Alumni 0 F. H. S. 7 Brunswick 0 F. H.

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. Summary: F. H. S. 1 Berlin 15 F. H. S. 20 Kingheld 9 F. H. S. 4 Jay 6 F. H. S. 8 Kingfield 9 F. H.

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. CROSS COUNTRY 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. TT GIRLS' BASKETBALL 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 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.

Rangeley TT 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 the future. TY TENNIS 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. Darrell Bryant, Athletics Editor. SCHOOL GALE DAR Sept. 7. F. H. S. opens with an enroll- ment of 290.
