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
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
"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."

' 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
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. Folger '52

relaxation or habit, why don't you cultivate the
idea of browsing through magazines such as

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.

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-

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.

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'

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.

WHY I LIKE WINTER
Some people like spring, some like summer,
and then there's fall that most people think is
the best of them all. 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.

hockey any day.

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
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
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.

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.

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
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-

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.

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.

WHENE 'ER TO DRINK YOU ARE
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

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
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
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. Down the back is a very dark
