Study it carefully and try to Find the names of all your classmates. If your score is from 65-75 you "get A sophisticated sophomore swain and his Clarita set forth to pick a violet all on an August summer's day. The powers-that-be were merrily eyeing the heath. The brooks babbled and the birds trilled their lovliest rounds. Iolly Miller Stevens by the stream waved at them and said hello with more than his usual frankness. While he was playing with a hazel withe, he little dreamed that the coal-black, heady eye of fate was marking this youth for future reference. VVhile the merry pair continued on their way, a cock ran across their path, loosely carrying a berry in his mouth and chased by a small Welch terrier. "Oh,'l squealed Clarita, "Patric, can we please hunt for the patch where he found that luscious berry? " "Foster such a thought, would you? Well, I suppose we can if you must." They strolled along and finally found the patch in a merry lynn so Clarita's aims were fulfilled. Much to their surprise they met the Earl of Farrington picking berries and chatting with the King of the Rangers. With- out intruding on this duo, they wandered hand in hand into the shadowy glenwood. Being overcome by the romantic surround- ing and tired of walking, they rested on the cool moss. Many subjects were discussed from the warts on Patric's hand to the latest gossip about Roger and Lill in the Barker. They even planned their dream- house, deciding to buy the Haney place and add a new ell to it. By the time the ell is done and Pat gets to be a sargent or a bailie, they might be financially able to re- place the staples in the door or buy a chest of drawers. By now Patric's mind was in a hodge- podge Worse than Tuttle's often is. Why did God, in giving life, have to allot such an amount of beauty to one person! His temperature was rising above normal and those ruby lips and pearly teeth seemed around "-excellent, 50-64 is good, 35-49 fair, under 35, you'd better get acquainted. Key on page 22. to draw him nearer, nearer and nearer. His state of mind must have been clearly legible for Clarita burst out with- "Why, man! I feel as if I hadn't eaten so much as a straw since Red left to ski. A guy linels caught somewhere in my stomach making it rub all the bones in my bodyf, "Mol 'Sher ever hear of anything as prissy as that! You would think of your stomach at a time like thisli' "Well, rue the day when the Alexanders' horse felt no peppier than this! You'd better feed me quick, even if you have to go from here to Libia to get something. If you don't, youlll have to wheel a load of sand to cover my body, and that needn,t make you glad especiallyf! "I don't give a whit! Nay, not a whit! But come along and we'll stop at Frary and Davis's and get some food. Catheryn and Kathryn will be there in their customary roles to feed sweets to the sweet."

President, Charles Murray Secretary, Iuclith Flint Vice President, Allan Smith Treasurer, Peggy Lou Iuhnsnn 24 ' The LAUREL 0 FRESHMENVILLE, LAST STOP! Bang! Crash! I had just had a blowout, skidded across the road and into a tree. At the time I was very annoyed, but the following hours in which the car was repaired were the most pleasant I had spent in a long time. As I finished examining the remains of what had so recently been a good front wheel, a loud screeching of brakes caused me to jump several feet. When I recovered and turned around, I was amazed to see a green Ford with none other than " Chazzu Murray sitting calmly in the driverls seat. " Anybody hurt? I, asked he. Then " Why, Deaniel I didnit know you." I explained the situation and Chazz said, " Hop in and welll get everything straightened out." We hadn't gone far when with another screeching of brakes we stopped to pick up a hitch-hiker, who turned out to be B. Robinson. He had been riding his famous bike on a cross country tour when the pint sized front wheel finally lay down to rest. We were both in the drove, he talked and same boat. As Chazz Blaine and I soon found out that we were on the out skirts of 'iFreshmanvilleu and that a great many of our former Farmington friends lived there. In fact, it turned out that there were so many I wouldn't have time to tell you all about every one so I'11 just mention those I saw and what they were doing. The garage was our first stop and we found out it was owned by V. Hodglgins. The driver of the Wrecker which went out to get my car was lohn Campbell and his assistant was C. Lesperanrc. Chazz next took me to the hotel so I could check in for the night. He told me that the owner of the hotel was .elvis I'I0plginx. The big, husky door-man who took my bags was Clare Greenlatu. As I went to register, who should the clerk be but S, Hodglqins. The next surprise was to find A. Lambert a bellhop. As I walked down the corridor, a door was Hung wildly open and out dashed L. Loacll and H. Bosworth, who were spending the weekend in town. After my walk upstairs I decided to come down in the elevator. VVhen the door opened there stood my old friend R. Barker in his bright blue, elevator boyis uniform. I met Chazz and Blaine in the lobby. We decided to eat lunch in the dining-room there at the hotel. There we saw Avis, who told us that her old gang worked in the kitchen-F. Farring- ton at the sink, G. Lamlgin as cook, and L. Nic: as the waitress. After the hearty meal, we decided to go to the afternoon matinee at the theater. It was a musical production called the "Redhead" star- ring L. Bailey, Paquctte, V. Luce, B. Crosby and fl. Tracy. Between pictures there was a floor show, which had a chorus of "Puttin, on the Ritzfl This was composed of P. loner, H. Hawes, and H. Sturteaant. There were some new ones too, who were G. Haley, Robbins, C. Stewart, B. Metcalf, F. Osborne, R. Porter, V. Pond, D. Soalc and S. Badge. The featured attraction was P. lohtzron and Flint doing their ever faithful glass acts with Hodge as pianist. The last was a Negro Chorus. I was surprised to recognize the voices of Hodglqinx, P. Gcndrvau, D. Ferrari, D. Turner, H. Wilson and R. Wing. The back drop was very comical with caricatures of the class of '52 on it. We later found out it was drawn by I. Waite. It was late when we got out of the movies, and as we were planning to go to a basketball game that night, we decided to settle on just hot dogs for supper. It was much to our amuse- ment to see K. Clzurcbill standing in front of the hot dog stand yelling, " I-Iot dogs, red hot! Come and get 'em. Hot dogsln When we went to buy our tickets for the game V. Harris was selling and P. Hobbs collecting at the door. On Freshmanvilleis first team were T. Bradley, G. Brumz, Frost, Merle Smith, and A. Smitlzj George and Fred Pillrbary were subs. The coach and his assistant were B. Raclqlijie and L. Richart1'5. The announcer was F. Hargreaifcr. Sittin' in front of us yelling their lungs out were G. Thomas, W. Webber, Wright, E. Robbins, and A. Mitchell. The referees were R. Beech, and F. Marana. Later that night at the hotel I received a call from Vernon saying my car was ready and I could call for it in the morning. I piled happily into bed only to still see 'fFreshmanviI1e', in my dreams. N.

O you fritter away your time in such use- less ways as reading comic books, mop- ing over homework. and hanging around down town? These may Ways in which you waste your time. In tact. that you spend your time be some of the numerous you may not know carelessly, and therefore don't realize that you might take up act.vities or hobbies that you have a real desire for. Say you read the comic books. Do you really enjoy them and think theylre worth your While? If you read comic books as a form of relaxation or habit, why don't you cultivate the idea of browsing through magazines such as the L'National Geographicv? These are not only interesting but informative as well. Don't you think moping over homework is sort of childish and shows a lack of willpower? Select a convenient time and put your mind to the task. Good lighting, quiet, and knowledge of your assignment will help you stick to your subject more easily. Why do you hang around downtown sipping a coke for over an hour? During the time you waste there, you might go skating, do your home work, or find an after-school job. Combine the time wasted on just these three topics and it would "add up" to a startling sum. I suggest that what you never have time to do be done on this Mfrittered away" time. Albert Mitchell 30.

YOUTH CENTER Farmington Has a New Youth Center! How would you like to see this in the headlines? It could be made possible by the cooperation of the townspeople and with help from the state. About a year ago there was a write-up in the paper about Farmingtons young people "going to the dogs." This sounded as though some- thing would be done, but nothing has been done about it as yet. The town of Farmington has a theater where many young people spend some of their time. VVe have a community building, where many different activities of the town take place. We also have a ski tow, but still there doesn't seem to be enough opportuni- ties to keep young folks busy. What Farmington needs is a Youth Center. Then there would be no good reason for idle- ness on the streets. If there ever is a Youth Center, it should contain many dilierent rec- reational facilities. Peggy Lou lohnson '52. WHAT I OWE TO MY GRANDMOTHER Ah, but life is sweet! And how close l came to not enjoying it. I owe my life to my grand- mother. VVhen I was born my whole right side was paralyzed. My mother was dying. My grand- mother, who had previously practised nursing. 9 The LAUREL I was my mother's nurse. The doctor said that he could save only one of us-mother or me. Naturally he picked mother because he didn't think I would be so great a loss as she. But grandmother said that if I died she would die anyway. So she took care of me. After she had worked on me for weeks, both day and night, the paralysis left me. Mother and I are now both able to enjoy life. Thank you, grandmother, dear. Ioyce Berry '50. A HEARTY NEW ENGLANDER The most unforgettable character Ilve ever met appeared to me once while I was at work in the Farmers, Telephone Office. I first met this individual when I answered a call with my usual, "Number, pleasef' I waited to hear the customary bored voice drawl out a number, but to my astonishment instead I heard, "Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Birthday! This is I. K. the butcher. Give me 699-Zlf' Then one night several weeks later as Roxie, the other operator, and I were sitting in the ofhce busying ourselves at the switchboard, I heard a clomp, clomp, clomp ascending the stairs. The bang of the door drew my atten- tion to a short, plump man with a hand towel around his neck and a cheerful grin on his face. He greeted us with a sprightly, "Hello", and even though I had never seen him before, I knew instantly that this was HI. K., the butcherf' Elaine Adams '50. DOWNFALL I remember the date very clearly. It was Octo- ber Zl, 1947, the First day of deer hunting. At hve oiclock that morning the air was crisp and clear. There had been a heavy frost the night before and the leaves were noisy. I was stumbling along the old woods road on Dallas Hill, in Rangeley, heading for my fa- vorite deer crossing. When I arrived there I con- cealed myself and impatiently awaited legal shooting time, which was about 6:10. It seemed to me that it grew colder as dawn crept closer. I checked my .30-30 to make sure the safety was on. Suddenly there was a noise off to my left like an animal very warily stalk- ing along. My heart started pumping like a triphammer. I raised my rifle and waited. My thoughts went astray. Then the noise stopped not thirty feet from me on the edge of the trail. I waited not daring to breathe. Then I could have shot myself. A big plump partridge walked proudly out in the open. Kenneth Fraser ISO. PERSONAL EPISODE The pasture was chosen by the Lower High Street Kids, as the perfect place to play Cowboys and Indians. When all had arrived, we chose sides, with both boys and girls playing. We made our own weapons-hows and arrows, also wooden guns. Some of the kids had cap guns. When the Indians began their attack, my out- fit scattered. lust then one of the Indian braves yelled. "A bull V' I made a dash for the old pine tree ahead, but as I ran, my unpredictable left ankle went out of joint. CThe bull was still coming., I thought of all the mean things I had done to the pasture animals of late, such as trying to lasso the cows, ride the calves, elec- trocute innocent frogs, and let the shiners out of their containers, making a bait shortage for the town's fishermen. Yes, I was deeply sorry for my wrong doings, The beast was still coming and I couldn't move. My ankle was swelling too. No longer was I a fearless bandit but a helpless little girl. Then out of no-where, the brain of my outfit picked me up and placed me safely in the tree. Then he laughed. The ferocious beast was only a frisky heifer. Ioyce Petrie ,50. OH-OH!

But winter is my favorite. What a feeling getting up on a nice bright morning with the ground covered with snowl It makes me think of all the sports I can take part in during the season. First there's basket- ball, nice for the cold winter nights. Then there's skiing or skating for the milder nights. What fun to go with the gang and start out for an evenings fun during the winter! I'm not forgetting the hockey games, those wonder- ful games where we give all we've got Fight- ing it out on ice. Sometimes we get a black- eye or a broken nose, but also a score 2 to I that makes our broken nose worth it. What pride to be able to win a hockey gamel Yes, Sir!

ANOTHER " CUB PILOT 7' I remember the first year I started oiling on a dragline for my father. The First day was "shore" colder than my brother's feet at bed- time, The second day I encountered something I had not planned on. This dragline had a sixty-live foot boom and promptly enough I was elected to climb to the top and grease the point shin. Upon reaching the top, I quite clumsily proceeded to drop my grease gun into a Five-foot pile of soft, sticky mud. I assure you the pleasure of digging it out was all mine. I kept pestering my dad to let me run the dragline. As most busy men do. he kept put- ting me off, always promising to let me try it. This soon became irritating and one day when he was in town after a roll of drag cable. I quite daringly decided to try my hand at erating this steel cracker box. As I sat in the seat I kept repeating to myself everything I had ever learned about it. After working over the controls some ten the bucket. Thus encouraged, I grasped another lever and quite confidently pulled as hard as I could. The dragline responded like a spurred steed, for I had pulled the swing lever with the throttle wide open. I swung around and around in circles with the tOIl bucket swinging op- minutes. I received some movement of around in front of me. Frantically I pulled every lever I could get a hold of and eventually had the dragline in al- most the same position it was when dad left. This seemed a complete miracle to me, for I had my eyes tightly closed most of the time. Clyde Cain A-I9. THE COYOTEE KID During my years in the Mid-W'est, I went on numerous coyote hunts, but two incidents in particular 1'1l remember all my life. When I was a freshman. I was going to school in a small town in northwestern Nebraska by the name of Palisade, on Frenchman's Creek. One day about a dozen of us school boys took an old coal truck and went hunting. VVe were about live miles from town when we saw our first coyote. Shooting from a roll- ing truck is no easy task, and we succeeded only scaring him "right good." The next one was so close any one of us "could of" hit him with a rock-except me. There were 22's, a shot- gun. and a 50-30 among us, and as we later found out. all but one small rifle drew blood. The concussion hurled "the critter" sideways, but he did not lose his footing- just sank close to the ground and ran from bush to bush as is common with the species. VVe all piled out of the truck and started trailing him by the blood and tracks he'd left. About half a mile farther on we found him flopped protectingly over a hole, with one hind leg shattered and parts of his entrails exposed. Coming closer we saw there was little life left in him. As we ap- proached, he curled up his lip and made a gurg- ling sound that was supposed to be a growl. We shot him again but even after he was dead, U The LAUREL 0 his lip stayed curled and we could see the tip of his red tongue sticking out between his teeth. In the hole he was protecting, there were five small cubs. We killed all but one, and this was given to a member of our party who raised him and finally turned him over to a zoo. Another time I was out after the cows on horseback. I vvas allowed to take a shotgun with me and like most kids, my hat was sure too small for my head. lust as I was getting the cattle under way toward the house, I saw this big gray feller, in fact, he was one of the biggest coyotes I had ever seen. Impulsively, almost without thinking, I threw down on him and let him have a whole bucket full of double-0 buckshot. About that time, the horse I was rid- ing decided he didn't like the scenery around "them partsl' and let me know what the atmos- phere was like about six feet above where I'd been sitting. Even if he hadn,t thrown me, the kick from the shotgun would have let me know what good old Nebraska topsoil feels like. I got home about ten o'clock that night, and my dad said he was just about to send the cows out to get me. I never saw the coyote after I shot him for shot at himj, but I bet he never walked so far that night as I did. Clyde Cain '49. BELIEVING IS SEEING Sam has been home from the Army now for two weeks. And everyone in the little town of Springdale is waiting for the big day when he will marry his boyhood sweetheart, Sally Brown. Samuel Stewart Iackson is his full name. He was born and reared in the little town of Spring- dale. Every tree branch could have told you Sam's weight when he roamed the countryside as a kid. And every trout in the small streams could tell his hook a-coming a mile away. As a boy, he was small for his age. He had thick sandy-colored hair, the kind that will never stay back even long enough for church on Sunday. His face was round with a deter- mined little chin and two big blue eyes placed evenly on each side of his short snout of a nose. You can sec then why Sally found him much more interesting in her younger days than her old rag dolls. Their fondness for each other grew stronger with the years. So when Sam left for the Army she went to the station with him. And after their good-bye kiss, she promised him she would wait. Sam went through a hard but short physical training and was shipped right Over-seas, with- out once having a chance to come home. He was stationed on a small island right under the nose of lap-held territory. It was hard work to keep yourself alive to say nothing about the guy beside you. He was lucky enough to keep away from that little gray bullet for a long time. Then one day as his group was taking a small lap island, something went off in front of him. He heard a loud blast then everything went black. When he came to, he was in a hospital. Yes, he knew he was-he could tell by the smell. What hospital? Did they take the island? Why was his face all covered with bandages? All this he did not know. He stayed in the hospital for two long months and then was sent home. Yes, Sam was finally sent home to Sally. And now, this very day Sam is to marry Sally at the little brick Baptist Church. There will be a lot of excitement and then it will be all over. And Sally will be Mrs. Samuel Stewart Iackson. Sam will talk with all his friends and hear them tell Sally how beautiful she is. And Sam will believe them all, because for the rest of his life he will have to believe without see- ing.

The father works hard to provide enough to keep body and soul together for his family. He is a strong, leathery-faced man who comes home at the end of the day to the peace of his Fireside and children. The mother is a kindly, thrifty, understanding woman who takes care of the home and mends the children,s clothes when they come home. The youngest children, who still havenlt out- grown their lisping, rush to their father as he comes home tired from the field. They are not old enough to go out to work but they have their chores to do at home. 0 The LAUREL 0 The older children come home from the neighboring farms where they are "bound out", at the end of each week. They turn their earn- ings over to their parents. Ienny, the oldest, brings home a young neighbor's boy whom she has fallen in love with. The father talks to him about cows and farming, and her mother puts her best aged cheese on the table for supper in his honor. After the simple meal of porridge and this cheese, the children inquire as to what the others have been doing during the week. The time flies with this social talk until it comes time for family prayers. The father reads from the Bible and after that everyone sings some old Scottish hymns. ln closing the father leads them in prayer. After the parents have given the children some timely advice. the eldest ones go back to their place of work and the youngest ones go to bed. The father and mother then pray to- gether, asking that the family may meet later in Heaven and that God will guide them and preside in their hearts. Patricia Richards VW. " The Cotter's Saturday Night by Robert Burns WHENE 'ER TO DRINK YOU ARE INCLINED -'X Tam, of Shanter farm in Carrick, had gone to the district market town of Ayr with his pro- duce. His route took him over the Doon river bridge and by Alloway kirkyard. He sold his produce, took the money and, despite his wife's warnings, went to the tavern. Here, seated by the fireplace, he and his fellow crony. the shoe- maker, proceeded to get exceedingly drunk. Tam flirted with the landlady, sang, and raised havoc in general as the night wore on. He did not notice that it was getting late and that it had turned into a very stormy night with wild rain, weird lightning and terrifying thunder. Despite this and the fact that the witches rule till midnight, Tam and his sturdy mare, Meg. set out the " lang Scots miles for hame ". The liquor in him made him very brave and also it set his mind wandering. However, he got along well enough until he reached the church. Here he saw a very strange sight. The place was all lit up and quite a crowd of warlocks and witches were dancing and doing jigs to the screaming music supplied by the Devil and his bagpipe. All about them were the most grue- some sights. There were open coflins with the dead holding torches. There were blood-stained axes and swords and murderers bones and un- christened babies. The dance became more and more lively. Hot and perspiring, the old bel- dams began to strip off their clothes even to their Flannel undershirts. Tam noticed one in particular whose shirt was exceedingly short. He reflected what a sight this would have been if this particular Nannie had been young, but she danced so well that he unwittingly shouted her praise, roaring, "Weel-done, Cutty-sarklu Instantly everything went black as the night and Tam came to himself. Quickly he started away at full speed for the Doon river bridge be- yond the middle of which no witch or beldam could go. He barely made it for the whole company was in mad pursuit. VVith a last burst of specd Maggie carried Tam across, but as she did so, Nannie "clutched her ain gray rail This sad sight remained as a warning for many long years to the farmers of Ayr not to stay oe'r-long at their drinking on market days. " Whene'er to drink you are inclined, Or cutty sarks run in your mind, Think! ye may buy the joys oe 'r dear, Remember Tam 0' Shanter's mare." Roy Lamkin '49 XTam o' Shanter by Robert Burns BROOK TROUT 4' A sport much practiced in the U. S. A. and the State of Maine is brook fishing. Many sportsmen take part in this game throughout the year. Among their catch are the following trout: rainbow, brown, speckled, and sand. We will take each one of these and try to tell you something about them-how to know them. where to find them and how to catch them. First a little about the structure of a brook trout. A fish has only a backbone, which is not a backbone at all but a vertebrae. This has rib bones hooked to it. These bones are covered by flesh which in turn is covered by skin. On 0 The LAUREL 0 top of the skin, running from the head to the tail are, sometimes, scales. These are to protect the skin. Fish never have hands or feet, they have Hns, which they use to get around in the water with, also helping them is the tail. This has a fanning motion when they are moving. There is also the head, which has two eyes and a mouth. Sometimes the mouth is large, but it varies in size according to the size and type of the Hsh. The fish all told looks like a cigar on the top of which is a fin. Also on each side is a Hn. Iust back of the jaws are what is called gills. The use of these is to take the oxygen from the water for the Hsh to live on. A Hsh can not live in water without oxygen and he also can not live on just pure oxygen, he must also have water. First, let us take the rainbow trout. These are found in brooks, streams, rivers, ponds and lakes. They vary in size, but we will touch only on the type-brook trout. This type of fish likes rapid water. They like cold waters, this type Hsh goes down to the head waters in the fall and up the brook in the spring. In the spring the female lays eggs and then the male lays the sperm over the eggs. When the small fish hatch, they follow in the same routine as their parents. About the way to catch this type fish. When using a worm, put it on in an angular position upon your hook, then drop it on the water at the upper end of fast moving water, letting the water carry the hook and worm down over the rapids, if this does not get results the Hrst time, do not get impatient, try a couple more times. Never Hsh up a stream, always go to the head waters and fish down. If this type Hsh is not biting the worm, we will next try using a Hy. It is best to try a dry Hy first. The Way to do this is to take off the hook which you have been using and put on a small spinner. Try casting down stream and reeling in slowly. The spinner attracts the Hshys attention and the dry Hy gets him when he tries to eat the spinner. If this does not work we will next try a wet Hy. The wet Hy is used in the same manner as the dry Hy except for two things. You do not use a spinner and when reeling in you reel in some- what faster. The rainbow trout should take to one of these styles of bait, but if he doesn't, all I can do is advise you to try another place on the stream. If after several tries in a num- ber of spots you have no results, try fishing for another type, perhaps the brown trout. The brown trout has at very lazy nature. You can dangle the bait right before him and he will just lie there and look to see if the current is going to bring it any closer to him. The brown trout are found mostly in deep pools. They are very frightened by the least thing. Some times when you drop a hook in the pool, they will swim away and hide. A person has to be very careful how he approaches the pools. This type Hsh will become very scared by just a personas shadow falling across the pool. In approaching one of these pools, keep the sun in your face and after coming to the pool slowly push your pole over the pool. To drop your hook, start it swinging like the pendulum of a clock. When it is swinging fast enough, let it drop very gently into the pool. If the Hsh do not bite the hook and worm, move back a step or two from the pool. Take off the hook and put on a dry Hy, then stand where you are and cast to the far side of the pool, making the Hy land as easily as possible on the water. Reel your line in very fast the Hrst couple of times, then more slowly. If this does not work, put on a small spinner and a wet Hy. Cast out as be- fore, but reel in very slowly, and do not make any sudden moves with the pole. When using the dry Hies you must not use any sinkers. The most important thing about Hshing for this type fish is that a person must move very slowly and move with care. A person may also catch speckled trout while fishing for the brown trout, but it is not sur- prising because the speckled trout have no special place of spawning. They go where the most food is and where life is suited to their natures. This type Hsh drives the other type brook trout from their homes and takes over. They eat the other small trout and prey on the other trout's eggs. They hatch very early and this type of Hsh does not have any regular spawning bed. They lay eggs wherever they may be. The color of this Hsh defines it from any other fish.
