The New Schedule
This year, a new program has been in-
troduced. It is not a rotating program
such as some schools have, but a program
which omits, in rotation, one regular sub-
ject each day to substitute the extra-cur-
ricular subjects, penmanship, spelling, and
We have six periods a dayg so on Mon-
day the second period is used for penman-
ship and spellingg on Tuesday the third
period is used for musicg on Wednes-
day the fourth period for penmanship
and spcllingg on Thursday the fifth period,
for musicg and on Friday the sixth period
is used for spelling and music.
On Fridays during the music period,
songs are sung, whereas during the other
periods the fundamentals of music are
taught. The substitution of music and
spelling have helped to break the neces-
sary monotony of daily routine.
-Ferne Maher, '39.
III Ill if
For some time the school has been in-
terested in buying a piano. So, at the be-
ginning of this year, we .set out in
earnest-first to raise the money for a
piano, then to find a good buy. We con-
siieied several, but they were not just
what every one wanted. Mr. and Mrs.
James Bunker looked at pianos at Har-
mon's music store in Bangor, and found
one they thought was what we wanted.
Later, through Mr. Scammon's interest,
Miss Gillings and Mrs. Jones were able to
see the piano. They thought it was one
that was worth what the school could
pay for it. Mr. Harmon was notified to
deliver it to the school. It has proved a
good piano and the students have derived
much benefit and pleasure from it.
The F. H. S. students wish to thank
the following, who so generously con-
tributed toward the piano: Hilda. Blais-
dell, Leona Wooster, Dorothy Eldridge
Kelly, Marcia Joy, Blanche Eldridge Goss-
ler, Mrs. Luce, Austin McNeil, Walter
Coombs and Dallas Tracey.
-Martha Hardison, '38.
HAS OUR SCHOOL LEAGUE BENEFITED
This question may be asked many times.
I think that I, as secretary and treasurer
of the League, can prove that the League
has made many things possible which
otherwise would never have been.
At the first meeting of the League for
the year 1937-38, a list of things was sug-
gested that. the students would like the
school to purchase. The articles were:
A flag, a. piano, girls' basketball suits, a
new basketball, curtains for the main
room, magazines for the library table,
and S25 for the Senior Class expenses.
In September, We cooperated with the
school board and were able to subscribe
to twenty dollars' worth of good maga-
zines, the town giving ten dollars and the
League matching it.
On October 1, we had succeeded in get-
ting our flag, which may be seen in front
of our school on all pleasant days. .
On September 13, the League voted to
buy Christmas cards to sell. With these
We netted 525. During this period We
had committees looking for a. good piano
to buy. In November, a piano was loaned
to us by Flora Joy until we could find
one we could buy.
On November 12, the League received
two basketballs from. Dakins' Sporting
Goods Co., for inspection. We kept one
of them, which cost 311.
On November 12, We had a supper to
raise money for girls' basketball suits.
The Baptist church cooperated with us
and let us use their vestry. We cleared
S12.25. The League appropriated from
their funds an additional 87.46, so that
the girls might purchase ten suits at i
cost of S19.66. .
At about this time, Martha Hardison
was appointed to write the Alumni, ask-
ing them to help us to buy our piano.
We received 58.50 in this way. On
November 29, the Harmon Piano Co. de-
livered a se-cond-hand piano, in very good
condition, for 550. At this time we didn't
have S50 in the treasuryg so Mr. Jones
came to our aid and paid for lt, the
school arranging to pay him back when-
ever they were able.
On December 19, the Senior class, with
the cooperation of' the underclassmen,
presented the play, "The Folks Next Door,"
and cleared about S16.00. Since it was
presented on a stormy night, we decided
that we must present it againg and on
February 5, the play cast rolled through
the crowded streets of Eastbrook .and
presented the play in the Grange hall.
We cleared 318.00 there. We were very
grateful to the grangers for letting us
have the hall for 31.00.
6 THE VOICE
The League has given the Seniors
852500, and at the present date, March
17, there is a total in the treasury of
Many people outside of the school
figure that we make money on basket-
ball. I will try to show you how we stood
on basketball for the year 1937-38:
For transportation of the teams S 53.50
For supplies, not including girls'
For electric lights, Town Hall 10.00
Total expenditures 5111.41
Total receipts from home games 87.39
Total loss 525.02
We iigured that the suits for the girls
are as good as new, so if that is taken
out, it makes a loss of only 35.36. We
iigured that every .student who played
ball received S5 worth of fun. Thus we
profited by having basketball. Does this
suits 28.31 not prove that the League has benefited
For girls' basketball suits 19.66 our school?
To Marion Springer, Class of '39
When the earth from her lamp is turning
to the shades of approaching night,
Then my heart with sorrowful yearning
Returneth to you with delight.
You who from life have turned aside
With but a single backward look,
By memory's path come and abide
With earthly friends you once forsook.
But when the East is golden
With dawn of approaching day,
You ieturn to the land of tomorrow,
And I-to the land of today.

DIARY CDF FRANKLIN HIGH SCHOOL - 1904-1938
Ah, what a grand day for me, diary!
For, as you know, I am born today, though
as yet I am not very elaborate. You see,
the Franklin people, realizing the need of
a high school for their children, have fol-
lowed the example of the neighboring
ic-wus and, under Mr. Cobb as principal,
and Mr. Joseph Doyle, as superinterdent,
have started a high school in the lower
room of the town hall. There is an en-
rollment of thirty-live pupils, and seven
sit at each table. Mr. Cobb intends to
keep school in the grammar school build-
ing in the winter. He hasn't any partic-
ular courses, but teaches from whatever
books we happen to have.
Oh, diary, am I proud! The students
have published the first "Voice" this year,
but as yet I can't boast of any graduates.
There has been quite a lot of excite-
ment in me this year. The "Voice" was
published by my first graduates, who held
their graduation in the town hall. Mrs.
Percy Clark, successor to my former super-
intendent, Mr. Joe Doyle, presented the
seven g1aduates with their diplomas.
1909 fJune 103
Well, diary, after a severe argument in
town meeting, the townspeople have de-
cided to furnish me, their school, with a
body for my spirit, and are to build a high
school. Mr. Charles Sprague is the boss
carpenter and Almer Fernald, Daniel
Crabtree and H. W. Lawrie are his able
assistants. The masons, Frank Workman
and Fred Swan, are to be assisted by
Arthur Bunker, Austin McNeil and Eugene
Butler, who are going to complete the
job by painting me. I think that I shall
cost about three thousand dollars.

1909 iFall - Septemberl
This morning, in the new building, Mr.
Foss, principal, sat behind his new oak-
paneled desk. Beside him was his able as-
sistant. The enrollment has increased so
much that an assistant was necessary. I
now offer two courses to the pupils. I
hope that sometime the commercial course
will be added to my curriculum. The stu-
dents can come to a warm building instead
of to the drafty town hall. The fires
are tended by James Bunker, one of my
My hope of having the commercial
course added has been realized, and
another teacher has been added, too. Am
Although my students have always
played baseball and basketball, this year
a particularly good basketball team has
been built up. The team won the cup in
the small school tournament and com-
peted in the State and county tourna-
ments. It brought home the third place
cup in the former, and a trophy from the
latter and placed them in the trophy case,
which was presented to me by the gradu-
ating class. I am very proud of the good
sportsmanship trophy which the Ban-
gor Y. M. C. A. Tournament awarded
I am still praising my basketball team
because this year it placed the trophy of
the Eastern State Small School Cham-
pionship in my trophy case
Again, diary, my students have made the
name of Franklin high well known. The
baseball team has taken first place in a
four-school tournament, and two of our
student speakers took part in a speaking
contest at Steuben, bringing home the
The first scholarship that has ever been
given to any of my graduates was given
to Kenneth Weatherbee this year by
Oglethorpe University, Ga., for having an
average of over ninety in high school.
Of him, Miss Russell Stovall, student
secretary, wrote to our principal, Mr.
Jones: "We are proud to have Kenneth
Weatherbee with us this year, and he has
proven to be a iine student. We should
like to -have some more boys of his type
I feel quite elaborate now, with electric
lights, running water, flush toilets, my
lawn all graveled nicely, a flag waving
before the school, our piano, our chorus
group, and our library and magazines.
My desks have also been scraped and
varnished by the N. Y. A. boys, until the
carvings, put there by thoughtless boys,
can no longer be seen.
Some of my most noted and praise-
worthy graduates are: Lloyd Dunham.
superintendent of Ellsworth schools,
Charles Hulbert, superintendent of schools
in Patten, Maine, Walter Blalsdell, who
received his M. A. degree at Harvard,
Bernard Sprague, who received his M. A.
degree at Columbia Universityg Leonard
Bragdon, a state civil engineer, Hilda
Blalsdell, superintendent of the Eye and
Ear Infirmary! Marcia Jordan, superin-
tendent in a chlldren's home in Massa-
chusettsg Frank Hanscomb, who will
soon graduate as a doctor from a western
college, and Sumner Crabtree, who will
soon graduate as a minister from Provi-
dence, Rhode Island, Bible Institute.
Now, diary, don't you think that, on the
Whole, I have a very good name to be up-
THE FRANKLIN HIG
The Franklin high school library opened
on September 20, 1937. Since many new
books had been purchased for the school,
it was necessary to devise some way of car-
ing for them, therefore the school voted
to have two librarians, Hazel Wilbur and
Ferne Maher, who should organize a li-
brary and present rules for its use. With
the help of Miss Gillings, the following
rules were made:
ARTICLE I-LIBRARY HOURS
A The library shall be open
1 In the morning before school
2 Morning recess
3 Half hour at ncon
4 Afternoon exercise period
5 Five minutes after school
B No book shall be taken from the li-
brary in the absence of the li-
ARTICLE II-LIBRARY RULES
A Anyone who willfully defaces or de-
stroys a library book shall have
library privileges withdrawn at the
discretion of the librarian and
must reimburse the library for
B Only one book may be taken out at a
C Books may be kept for two weeks,
after which period a fine of lc
per day will be charged for over-
time unless the book is renewed.
1 A book may be renewed once for a
period of one Week, upon applica-
tion to the librarian.
2 'Ihe regular overtime charge will be
made if the book is not returned
after the expiration of the re-

immediately to the librarian, who
Will make the necessary arrange-
ARTICLE IV-FINDING BOOKS
A If you are unable to find a particu-
lar book according to its classi-
fication the librarian will be glad
to assist you.
The librarians initiated a miniature fil-
ing system, the card case being a small
pasteboard box. Since this box is nearly
filled, a regular card case would be deeply
appreciated by the school. The regular
Dewey classification .system is being fol-
lowed. There is a card for each book.
On these cards are: The dates taken, the
dates due, and the names of the bor-
The library contains many recent books,
but there is need of more non-fiction ma-
terial for use in English reports.
We are grateful to have the following
magazines: "Life," "The National Geo-
graphic," "Nature Magazine," "The Ameri-
can," "Literary Digest," "Readers' Digest,"
"S-eholaitic Coach," "Popular Mechanics,"
"Popular Aviation," 'fTime," "Pathfinder,"
"Le Petit Journal," "Biology Briefs," "The
Science Teacher," and "The Science Leaf-
In our library we have many new books,
the most popular of which are: "Silver
Chief," "Joan of Arc," "Moby Dick and the
White Whale," "Ho-Ming, Girl of New
China," "Treasure Island," "The Three
Musketeers," and "All Sails Set."
The school takes this opportunity to
thank those who have contributed books
and who have made this library possible.

THE Vorca 1-f
THE SENIOR PLAY
AFTER weeks of rehearsal the Senior
play, "The Folks Next Door," was pre-
sented at Sprague's Hall, December 16. On
February 5, it was repeated at Eastbrook.
A social followed both performances. The
cast was as follows:
Willard Stiver-Editor of the "Independent,"
Dr. Samuel Hcvbsln-next door neighbor,
Sarah Stiver-Stiver's wife ..... Martha Hardison
Roy Stiver-Stiver's son ........ Weyman Billings
Ellen Hobson-I-Iobson's wife ........ Hazel Wilbur
Zelda Hobson-I-Iobson's daughter ...... Erma Joy
Cleva Stiver-Stlver's daughter ...... Bette Hewitt
Donald Hobson-Hc-bson's son .... Harold Bunker
Elwood Granger-young man from Indianapolis,
Lola Ellington-a local belle ....... Bette Donnell
Almira Gudgeon-president of ladies' aid,
Byron Longly-principal of grammar school,
The outstanding and most humorous
scene of the play was the iight between
Erma Joy iZelda Hobsonl and Weyman
Billings tRoy Stiverl, who staged a tooth-
and-nail fight to start a feud between
their families in order that their fathers
might not have to portray "brotherly
love" in the ladies' aid tableafux, dressed in
Some of the memorable speeches were:
Hazel Wilbur, in a whining voice to her
son, Harold Bunker, who has just been
married to Bette Hewitt and is going to
Chicago: "I'll never have a minutes peace
while you're in Chic--a-g-y!"
Donald Piper, in his sarcastic way to his
wife fHazel Wilburl: "Go on home 'n git
Piper and Hopkins in their furious rage.
Piper saying to Hopkins that he will set
his dog on him, to which Hazel QPiper's
wife! draggingly replies: "But, Sam, we
haven't a d-o-r-g."
Both plays were a financial success.

BESTOCCA y ,
RESTOCCA stands for the following: B
for baseball, E for expression, S for
spelling, T for track, O for orchestra, one
C for commercial, the other C for chorus,
and A for achievement.
Bestocca takes place in the spring at
places which are chosen by the School-
masters' Club of Hancock county. For the
last two yea.rs it has been held at Castine.
Last year, at baseball, we took .second
place. Mt. Desert beat us by the score of
In Expression we had two contestants,
Bette Hewitt and Harold Bunker. Bette
gave "A Voice From A Far Away Country,"
and Harold, "Bill Magee's Weapon."
In Track, we did fairly well, consider-
ing it was the first year that we have ever
had a track team. In track the events
are: A 440-yard relay race, broa.d jumping
and the shot put. Our line-up for the
relay was Vernon Dalzell, Junior Hardison,
Herbert Jordan and Perley Harriman. The
broad jump line-up was the same, except
tha.t Earland Coombs jumped instead of
Herbert Jordan. Hardison cast the shot
38-feet, but because one boy did not ap-
pear for the shot put, we failed. How-
ever, this year we hope to do better, and
Hardison hopes to make a throw of 44
feet. We also had a girls' track team.

THE Franklin High School Glee Club was
organized October 26, 1937, the first meet-
ing being held with Miss Gillings at the
home of Edith Bradbury. There it was
voted that the club meet once a, week and
the following officers were elected: Presi-
dent, E. Hardisong vice-president, D. Col-
lar, secretary and treasurer, M. Jordang
master of ceremonies, Celand Hopkins.
At the second meeting the club decided
on the name, "The Franklin Harmony
Songsters . "
Before the next meeting Miss Gillings,
with the help of three other members,
drew up a constitution, one of the rules of
the constitution being that those not at-
tending the first meeting who wished to
join the club must be voted into the club
and undergo an initiation.
By means of a penny collection at each

THE HARE'S ADVENTURE
Cwith apologies to Scottl
The hare at dawn had ta'en his rest
And faced the daylight at his best.
With utmost bravery he did start,
With quick farewell did he depart.
The hunter with his shootin' 'arn
Commenced his hunt from Bradbury's
The hare loped to a. grassy spot,
Knowing not of the hunter's plot.
He had not nearly reached his fill
When thunder broke the morning still.
A swish of lead like wind tl1a.t pushes
Went o'er his head into the bushes.
Quick from the clover he did dart
With speed of light right from the start.
His skin the hunter did not get:
For aught I know he's running yet.

THE VOICE 15
THE house stood dark and desolate
against the background of a starlit sum-
mer sky. Mr. Morrison, who lived there
with his servants, was evidently away on
some professional trip or at one of the
numerous lodges to which he belonged.
He was a doctor, who had no conscience
a.bout letting a person die because he
lacked money. It was rumored that his
young wife had died of poisoning, but as
she had been coniined to charitable work,
her death was attributed to hard work.
At this particular time, a man could be
seen raising a window and entering the
house. He crossed to a safe in the wall,
but his flashlight gleamedi on something,
and on closer observation he found it to
be a partially iilled whiskey bottle, from
which he took a few quick swallows. Sud-
denly he heard the sound of a key in the
lock, and he hid himself in a small closet
from which he saw Dr. Morrison enter
the room. The doctor seated himself by
his desk and drank the remaining contents
from the bottle. Then, taking a maga-
zine, he began to read. He sat thus for
half an hour, but the intruder noticed that
he had assumed a queer position. The
doct:ir's teeth were clenched, his arms
seemed to be immovable, and he stared
straight at the wall. A noise behind him,
like something hard scraping on glass,
failed to attract his attention, even though
it made shrill squeaks and drove daggers
of fear into the very heart of .the in-
The sound of breaking glass could now
be heard, and a man crawled through a
broken window into the room and 'took a
position directly in front of the doctor.
The latest visitor walked with a sort of
-catlike grace, and his voice, when he
finally spoke, was like the hissing of a
confined rattlesnake. He turned to the
doctor, who had become sickly pale, but
had never moved from his rigid position,
and began talking to him.
"So it is the mighty doctor, himself,
whom I have here," he said. "You who
let my brother die because he could not
pay your fee g you who poisoned your wife
because she would not tolerate your evll
deedsg you have been at liberty only be-
cause you had money and power 'enough
to live outside the clutch of the law.
Now you are in my power because of a
drug which was in that bottle and which
you so obligingly drained. This drug has
paralyzed you, but as it was a weak solu-
tion, its effect will have worn away in
about two hours. I have some here in
this little tube which will last for a
thousand years. It is even stronger than
that which holds you now, for it will stop
your heart from beating, but still your
mind shall live.
"Tomorrow, when you are found, people
will think that you are deadg they will
plan your funeral - and you will be pow-
erless to prevent them. You will go alive
to your own funeral and will hear them
bury you. For a. thousand years you will
live in your grave and hear the world
above you, and at the end of that time,
your heart will begin to beat and your
lungs will crave for air. But in your cell
there will be no air and you will die from
strangulation , "
He was preparing to inject the drug into
the doctor's veins when the intruder in
the closet decided that he would end this
cruelty. He tried to step forth into the
room, but he remembered that he had
drunk from the bottle and was held para-
lyzed by its effects. He watched the man
give the drug to Morrison by means of a
little vial, and then he saw him leave the
room. In about two hours he was able to
move, and he, too, left the room.
Two days later he saw a funeral proces-
sion pass by on the street, and he alone
knew that a live man was being buried,
but dared not tell because of the suspicion
it would throw on himself. As for Morri-
son, probably he still lives in his death
-cell waiting for that day far away when
he shall die and end forever his worldly
-Gerald Wilbur, '38.
0NE day, when I was about five years old,
a strange and terrifying incident,
which I will never forget, came to my
mother and me.
My mother and I had been shopping,
we came home about 6 o'c1ock in the eve-
ning of a bleak wintry day.
"Dale, father won't be home to dinner
tonight, so we will have to eat alone, and
you must go to bed directly after dinner,
After dinner, mother took me into my
bedroom and helped me undress.
"Just one teeny-weeny story before I
go to sleep?" I said.
"Well, it will have to be a short one," re-
plied mother, settling herself comfortably
beside me on the bed, while I prepared
myself to listen to her story.
Suddenly, I felt my mother stifren. I
looked at her inquiringly. Her face had a
frightened expression, and her eyes had
grown large with fear. She kept staring
at something - something apparently on
the floor. My eyes followed here.
"Mother," I began. But her hand closed
over my mouth. Instead of telling me a
story, she slapped me hard and began to
sing loudly in Roumanian. "Go to sleep.
you bad girl," she snapped at meg then
.S-ang more loudly than ever in Roumanian
while I cried harder.
"What makes her act so strang1y?" 1
wondered. But I was too young to reason.
Then she pinched me-not too hard-but
a defmite pinch. Loudly I screamed in
anger, and higher rose her voice in the
Amidst all the tumult, the doorbell
rang. Mother kept on singing. Again
the bell rang lnsistently. Mother called,
"Just a minute!" Then, with shaking arms,
she grabbed me closed and tried to walk
slowly-I say "tried to walk," for I sensed
that she wanted to run, not walk. I felt,
as she held me, that she was shaking with
fear-of what, I didn't know. With an ef-
fort she managed to open the door, and
there stood our next door neighbor with
a policeman at her side.
"There's a burglar under the bed!"
mother screamed in Roumanian, and col-
After the thief was led away and mother
had been praised for her bravery and
cleverness in deceiving the burglar, she
.said to me, "Forgive me, honey, for pinch-
ing youg but it was the only way."
Mother explained that after she saw the
burglar's feet under the bed, she figured
the only way to keep him there was to
pretend she was singing me to sleep. She
knew that our next door neighbor under-
stood Roumanian, and so she sang in that

language. But lt wasn't only a song, but
a cry for help, and in order to attract
our neighbors attention, she had to keep
Now that my mothen ls dead and I have
a little girl five years old, it brings back
the memory of that bleak, cold, wintry
day with the experience that will never

WHERE THERE'S A WILL -
Rufus Grind1e's chair came down with
a bang as an imperious voice cut into his
reverie demanding, "I must have a. room
"Darn!" Someone would have to come
as he was getting to the most interesting
pa1t of his book. He looked up and saw
an attractive young woman with black
eyes, black wavy hair, delicate black brows,
and a very determined chin.
"Well, what are you staring at?" she
asked. "Haven't you ever seen a woman
before?" Rufus murmured an apology
and rang for a bellboy. Girls usually
paid some attention to himg but this one
was different, she treated him as if he
were merely a servant. "She sure is at-
tractive," said Rufus to himself.
The bellboy arrived, picked up her
bag and waited for her to follow him
from the room. She thought a moment,
and then signed her name on the reg-
ister. After haughtily asking Rufus about
the meals, she commanded the bellboy to
show her to her room.
After she left, Rufus stood gazing after
her in mute admiration. The book, that
he had so hated to leave, was entirely for-
gotten. "Why was she so nervous?" said
Rufus to himself. "What was her great
rush? H-m, now, lets see, didn't she say
something about a man following her?
Yes! I know she did. Well, he won't get
her unless she is willing to go with him.
Not if Rufus Grindle can help it."
Suddenly he pulled the register towa.rd
him and looked at her name-"June
Lowlace," a name belying the character
of its owner, and written in a clear firm
hand that disputed the feminine delicacy
of the name.
He was rudely awakened from this
pleasant reverie by a harsh voice demand-
ing, "Let me look at that register." He
murmured an apology and looked up at
the owner of the voice. He gazed at the
man a moment and gave a start of sur-
prise. "Why," thought Rufus, "he must
surely be June's father. Yes, his eyes,
brows, and chin are identical."
Suddenly Rufus remembered himself
and asked, "Would you like a room, sir?"
"No, I wouldn't. If I had I would have
told you so in the first place," was the curt
reply. The man then turned and left as
abruptly as he had come.
Rufus dropped into his chair wondering
what it was all about. He was still won-
dering a.n hour later when a
tourists arrived demanding his attention.
June did not go into the dining room
for her supper until after everyone else
had left, and, wonder of wonders, she
asked Rufus to join her. His heart was
in his eyes as he joyously answered, "I
shall be delighted to join you as soon as
the other clerk comes on duty." Just then
the other clerk arrived, and Rufus and
June went into the dining room together.
"Suppose you tell me your story," said
Rufus, as they seated themselves.
"I believe that I can trust you," June re-
plied, "and so I'll tell you. A month ago
I came home from a tour in Europe. I
have been there three years and, as I am
twenty-three and was my own boss over
there, I feel that I am perfectly able to
take care of myself. Father is grouchy
and ve.y domineering. I think that I
could have borne it if he had been pleas-
ant, but he wasn't. I have promised to
marry a, fellow I have known all my life.
He is very wealthy, three years my junior
and can be easily ruled. He thinks that
he loves meg and by marrying him, I
shall escape my father's domineering
spirit and shall be able to do as I please,
My father is opposed to my marriage with
Percival. We are going to meet here to-
morrow and be married at once.
"I told father today, and be forbade
me to even leave my room. He said that
he would give the servants orders to keep
me there. I went to my room and got
my bag, which I had packed before I told
father. Then I ran down the servants'
stairs and out their entrance. Fate was
against me, beca.use father saw me when
he was giving the servants orders. He
started in pursuit, and I Went into a de-
partment store, eluding him by going out
the bacl: entrance. And .so here I am."
"Great Scott!" ex-claimed Rufus. "Did
you :ay your father was looking for you?
Why, that must have been he here shortly
after you arrived. He seemed very curt
and looked at the register as if he would
cat it up."
June turned pale as she heard these
wo1:'s. "Father must have heard Percival
and I talking about my staying here."
As she and Rufus were getting up from
the table, the door opened and admitted
Mr. Lovelace. June whispered, "That's
my father. Are you married?"
Rufus replied negatively, and then Mr.
Lovelace spoke: "Well, young lady, what
do you mean by disobeying my orders
Come home at once."
'fFather, you always said that a woman's
place is with her husbandg so I shall stay
with mine. May I present Rufus Grindle,
your new son?"
Mr. Lovelace gasped in surprise, but
quickly recovered himself and heartily
congratulated them both, saying, "I only
tried to keep Portia from marrying that
young infant because I knew they would
not be happy."
"Portia?" said Rufus, "I thought her
name was June."
"I only took that name," said June, "in
hopes that father would not find me. My
real name is Portia Bruce."
"I comprehend that you do not need any
assistance to plan a honeymoon, so I will
go to my office," said Mr. Bruce, with
mock solemnity as he left them.
As the door closed behind him, Rufus
crushed Portia's hat on her head, grabbed
her aim, and said, "We have just time
to reach the license bureau before it
closesg and, if you won't go, you'l1 find
that I shall be more domineering than
your father. Are you going?" He was
pushing her ahead of him all the timeg
and what could a poor girl do against a
led-headed, blue-eyed, football giant, two
years her senior?
-Hazel Wilbur, '38,
IT has been said that gossip does more
harm than a war. In New England this
is very true, dating back to the Puritans.
If a person does something uncommon,
there is always someone to start a story
about it. Sometimes this causes sensi-
tive people to seclude themselves and seem
Such a person was Ellen Pratt who, at
thirty-five, was considered a queer old

maidg but she was not as queer as people
thought. She would have been friendly
had people tried to be friends with her.
Mothers had brought up their children to
On the night when our story begins,
Miss Pratt is seated by- the fireplace in
her parlor with her six cats sleeping in
various parts of the room. She is look-
ing at an old family album, and her eyes
have a far-away look as she dreams of
days gone by. This dreamy look deepens
as she gazes at the picture of a handsome
young man with Wide brown eyes.
Suddenly her happy dreams are inter-
rupted by a wailing sound coming from
the front of the house. At first Ellen
thought it was only the wind in the pines,
but after listening several minutes, she de-
cided to investigate. As she opened the
door, her surprise was unspeakable, for
there on her front steps lay a bundle of
pink blankets, from which came the wail-
After she recovered from her surprise,
she picked up the bundle and carried it
into the house. Carefully putting it on
the sofa, she began to unwrap it and
soon uncovered a baby boy about two
months old, who looked at her with wide
brown eyes. As Ellen looked at the baby.
she wondered where she had seen those
eyesg but she didn't wonder long, for soon
the baby began to cry and Ellen had to
quiet him by giving him some sugar and
After the baby was asleep Ellen laid
him down and went to look over his
clothes. As she was examining them, she
found a note which read "Please keep lit-
tle Joe." As Ellen read the note, her won-
derment grew even greaterg for all the
time she had the feeling that there was
something familiar about the little waif
she had found.
Taking the note, Ellen went over to
look at the sleeping babyg and as she
stood there, the brown eyes opened and
looked up at her. Suddenly a change
came over Ellen Pratt's face and her eyes
filled with tears, for once more she was
remembering that night ten years ago
when she and Joe Grant had quarreled
and parted forever.
Well could she remember the day she
had read of the marriage of Joe Grant
and Nancy Brown. That was three
years ago. She had not seen or heard
of Joe since, but now before her lay his ln-
fant son. There Was no mistake about
that, for no one but Joe or his son could
have such eyes.
After making sure of the baby's identity,
Ellen Went to her mirror to see if she had
changed in the last ten years. The
image she saw there was very much like
the Ellen of ten years ago-the same soft,
waving, golden hair and the same, blue
After a few days, news spread through
town that a baby had been left on "Old
Maid" Pratt's doorstep. Soon Ellen was
flooded with callers, telling her how to
take care of the baby. Ellen decided that
if they weren't willing to call on her be-
fore, she wasn't going to be bothered with
them nowg so she dldn't put herself out
to be friendly. People were surprised to
find Ellen Pratt a very pretty young
woman and not what gossips had reported
her to be. - c
One evening after Ellen had had the
baby about two weeks, a knock came at
the door. Upon hearing it Ellen thought
it probably was only more callersg but she
went to answer it. There in the door
stood a man about her own age, pitifully
thin, holding his head down as though in
shame. Ellen asked him to come in and
rest. As he came into the room, she near-
ly faintedg for there stood Joe Grant, just
as he had ten years a.go.
After Ellen had given Joe something to
eat, he told his story-how his Wife had
died about a month before, leaving him
the care of little Joe. This job he knew
he could not do, so he had left the ba.by
on E1len's step, for he knew she was still
the tender-hearted woman she had al-
ways been in spite of the stories.
When he finished his story and had
seen his son, he told Ellen he would go, but
it would make him very happy if she
would forgive him for the wrongs he had
done. Ellen forgave him saying the quar-
rel wa.s as much her fault as his.
About a week later, the town was shocked
nearly out of its senses when an an-
nouncement of the marriage of Joe Grant
and Ellen Pratt appeared in the paper.
After this, many of the gossips were care-
ful to find the truth of a story before they

A MARRIAGE FOR CONVENIENCE.
"WELL, this must be the place where I
am to meet my future employer. I
wonder what sort of a person M. Heather-
shire can be? This is a rather peculiar ad-
vertisement anywayf' Thus ran Garth
Greyland's thoughts as he reread the piece
of paper in his hand.
Wanted: A young man for honorable
work for a short time. No experience
necessary. Please meet me at Grand
Station at 3:30 p. m., Wednesday--M.

"Are you the Mr. Garth Greyland who
answered my advertisement?" she asked,
as she approached the tall young man
with dark hair and surprising grey eyes.
"Yes," he answered as he gazed into her
large violet eyes," but I thought you were
a man-I mean, the advertisement was
signed M. Heathershiref' he blundered on,
trying to overcome his surprise.
"I did sign my initial, but my name is
Margo," she explained. "And now for the
work. I want you to marry me."
At the look of astonishment which spread
over the young man's face, she explained,
"It can be annulled at once, but I must get
married in order to get my money which
is in trust. You see, I want to join a radio
company and I need a thousand dollars to
invest in it, and my dad won't give lt to
me. If you will marry me, I wlll give you
a hundred dollars."
Garth, after a moment of thinking,
asked where the justice of the peace was.
within an hour they were standing in front
of the justice's house looking rather em-
barrassedly at each other. "Well, my dear,
we are now man and wife."
"Yes, but you will please call me, Margo,
and not 'my dear'," she responded rather
tartly, and then added, "would you like to
come up to the apartment for dinner?"
They were greeted at the door of her
ultra-smart apartment by a man, who, at
a glance, one could see was her father.
"Where have you been, young lady?" he al-
most bellowed at her.
"Father, meet my husband."

"W-w-what!" the old man stammered, a
look of consternation on his face.
"Yes, my husband. You needn't look so
surprised. Now Ishall join the radio com-
pany. I am going to the rehearsal to-
night, and," after a moment's silence, "I
shall take the money to them then." "Well,"
she continued, "we might as well have
some supper." ' ' s
As Garth prepared to follow her through
the kitchen asking, "Can't I help?" her
father said, "No, young mang you stay and
talk with me."
After a half hour's absence, Margo ap-
peared at the door, saying, "Dinner is near-

have a dinner date," said Mr. Heather-

termined to joln the company," she re-
"Goodnight! I'll see you in the morning,"
he grumbled as he left.
After an intimate supper, Margo and her
new husband turned the lights low, and
listened to the radio, fully aware of each
other's charm. Before they knew it, they
were in each other's arms, and Margo's
date with the radio -company was forgot-
About 10 o'clock the next morning, while
Margo was getting breakfast, Mr. Heather-
shire came- bustling in to eat with them.
"Well, my boy," he said to Garth while
they were eating, "You won the hundred
dollars, and a very good thing you did, be-
cause I saw in this morningks paper where
that radio company was at fraud and they
are all in jail." A
"So that is the way it is, is lt?" Margo
said, after her father had gone. "You said
that you loved me and wanted to be mar-
ried to me always just for the hundred
dollars dad gave you. Well, here is another
hundred to go with it! And now get out
of my sight and don't ever come back! To
think that I believed what you said!" she
"But, Margo, dear, I did mean it! I dldn't
even think of what your father said! I
love you more' than anything else on
earth," Garth tried to explain.
"Go! go!" she cried hysterically.
"Yes, Margo, I am going, but you are
wrong, and if you ever iind it out, you can
find me at the Graymore hotel," he said
slowly, as heleft.
After' he was gone, Margo threw herself
on the bed and sobbed until she was ex-
hausted.. When her father returned, he
found her asleep. Gently he awakened her,

pened. In the midst of her explanation

The room was dull and bareg
The light came dimly from withoutg
Gray dust was everywhere.

But since my purse was thin,
And there was little choice, I turned
Once more and looked within.
I crossed then to the window ledge,

Stood singing in the rain.

She clumped away, and never guessed
She'd rented me a tree.

When dawn is breaking,

For it's then I realize,

In our school we have a furnace,
And, Oh! How it does smoke!
Some days we study in earnest,
And other days we choke.
My eyes run like a rippling stream,
Enough to float a raft,
The tears run down the back of my neck
As Austin opens the draft.
As I went home from school one night,
And I thought of another day,
I teased my aunt with all my might
That I at home might stay.
Mr. Jones is an extra good guy,
He'1l give you rank that is very high.
He teaches Civics and Algebra too.
When it comes to Physics the kids feel
He is always jolly and full of fun,
But when he gets serious we feel that
You take him all 'round and he's pretty
He always remembers to ring the bell!

OUR baseball season opened early with
a game with Bar Harbor high. The
men in our line-up were Junior Hardison,
pitcherg Thomas Macomber, pitcher and
first baseg Perley Harriman, catcher, Wen-
dell Hardison, second baseg Donald Collar,
third base, Gerald Wilbur, short stop:
Herbert Jordan, left tieldg Earland Coombs,
centerfleldg Vernon Dalzell, right field,
Langdon Jordan, right field.
Substitutes were Carroll Jordan, Paul
Bradbury and Charles Bradbury.
Although we lost this first game, we
showed good organization, and after we
entered the Schoodic League, composed of
Steuben, Sullivan, Winter Harbor and
Franklin, we won all but one game, which
was with Sullivan, the score being close-
Sulllvan, 4, Franklin, 3. Having won all
but one game, we won the championship
At Bestocca on May 16, we played
against Sullivan. After winning this game
by a score of 11 to 3, we played Mt. Desert.
Mt. Desert beat us, as We expectedg but
our boys put up a good fight.
Another Bestocca event which we en-
tered was track, taking places in several
events. At the track meet in Bluehill,
which six attended, Celand Hopkins placed
in two events-the pole-vault and low
We have started a. touch football team
on a small scale, and have a lot of fun
playing this during our sparegtime.
We hope that we shall have the cooper-
ation of everyone in 1938, in order to have
still better teams.
THE boys' basketball season turned out
reasonably successful this year, even
though, between old age and the 1937
g1aduation,iwe lost four of our first team
regular players. In general, We had fairly
large audiences, butuin spite of this good
attendance we came out, financially, in
the hole. This year, through the efforts
and initiative of Mr. Jones, a second team
has been organized, which played eight
games and entered two tournaments. Even
though we won on scheduled games, the
iirst team substitutes gained valuable ex-
perience for another year and had a great
deal of fun.
The first regular team game of the sea-
son was played in-Brooksville, November
20.In spite of being handicapped by a
slippery floor, our boys put up a good iight,
but lost, 31-26.
Other exciting first team games were
with Milbridge at Franklin, 37-36, in favor
of Milbridge. From Brooksville, at Frank-

Due to the loss of two good pla.yers

five and lost nine, thus keeping them from

All the boys in school have cooperated

hope they will keep it up next year.
The men who earned letters in basket-
ball are: Edward Hardison, jr., captain:
Earland Coombs, manager, Donald Collar,
Langdon Jordan, Carroll Jordan, Gerald
Wilbur, Charles Bradbury.
THE basketball season of 1937-38 proved
to be the most successful our team has
ever had. By far the most exciting game
was that played at Winter Harbor, the
score being, 22-22.
This year, the team has been more suc-
cessful in plays and teamwork, since there
were separate coaches for boys and girls,
thereby allowing more time to be devoted
to each team.
Prospects for another season seem good,
since we do not expect to lose a single team
member and since the grammar school
shows promise of developing good ma-
terial through the efforts of their coach,
Those who earned letters were:Barbara
Eumunds, Margaret Eldridge, Harriet Ed-
munds, Bette Donnell, Marjorie Bunker,
Ferne Maher a.nd Adah Reed.
By giving a supper, the girls, assisted by
the boys, were able to earn money for
new green suits.
Two very exciting and humorous post-
season games were played, one being the
regular team members versus the alum-
nae and teachers, with the latter cla.d in
night shirts, the other being a handicap
game between the girls and boys. Even
the referees in the former contributed to
the fun by their dressy Miss Pumphrey be-
ing dressed as a clown, Mr. Jone.s as a
young lady, and Miss Gillings as a. mus-
tached young man.

A Few Do's and Don'ts
It is difficult to advise anyone, this day,
of the world. I expect you have all heard
this many times since you have been old
enough to understand the meaning of the
trite expression, but as you go on in life
you will find that it is very true. Neverthe-
less, I do Want to say something to you
that I hope you will rea.d, digest, and try
High school is such fun. You have
reached the age that you have been look-
ing forward to since you first started gram-
mar school. I know that when you were in
grammar school you have said many, many
times, "I'tt be so glad when I get into
high school." Just as though high school
was the one big goal to be reached and
then life would be complete. But now that
you are in high school, have you planned
what to do after you leave? If you haven't
anything definite in mind, get something
right away. There isn't any time to loseg
and if you can't think of anything, prod
yourself to find something that will in-
terest you-something that Won't give you
any rest until you are are on the way to
Perhaps "Don'ts" are bad for this gen-
eration, but I believe some are in order,
and I hope these few will be constructive.
Don't lay down on the job of being a good
citizen. By that I mean, BE someone, but
remember you can't BE someone just laz-
ing around waiting for the chance to make
good. Go out and earn your own reward.
It isn't easy to accomplish what you set
out to dog and the person who is helped at
every turn, who has every chance to make
a success of himself, who has everything
handed to hlm on a silver platter, isn't the
one who merits the admiration and respect
of the citziens in his community.
Don't let your minds become entangled
with sentiment while in school. I don't
mean to infer that you shouldn't enjoy the
social activities that your school coffers
wherein you attend with your best boy or
girl friend, but don't let your best boy or
girl friend be taken too seriously. Assume
it for the present to be an infatuation,
and then don't let that infatuation hinder
you from attempting to make your life
worth while. Don't marry before you have
had a chance adequately to prepare your-
self and get safely started on your career,
or before you have had a chance to ex-
plore at least a small part of the world in
which you are to live.
Don't take the path of least resistance.
That path is a stay-at-home path, and
doing nothing but that. Self-improvement
need not stop and should not stop on leav-
ing high school, and can be accomplished
by studying at home as Well as in schools
of higher education if the Will to Work
and the desire to arrive is strong enough.
I do hope that I have made clear in a
small way that in order to become the
type of citizen that any town or city will
welcome as one of its respected members,
you and ONLY YOU must make the effort
while you are in high school. Prepare
while you are young and your mind is
open to the possibilities that the world of-

To different people, success has different
meanings. As the years go by, one's ideas
of what it means to succeed, change.
Many people at some time in their lives
think of success in terms of material
wealth, others, in terms of power to con-
tzol the destinies of othersg still others, in
terms of personal pleasures or ambotion.
'Ihese are merely typical instances of a
I am inclined to believe that most people,
having arrived at maturity, look upon suc-

moderate degree, of many things. I am
including only two of these here. First,
there is the life occupation at home, in
business or in the professions, that will
permit the maintenance of self-respect
and the sense of a job well done from day
to day. Secondly, there is the desire for

Success can not be measured
In terms of wealth and weal,
Of power, pomp and circumstance,
Or arms of shining steel.
Success, my friends, is measured
By pride in work well dome,
By self-respect and virtue,
By Joy in victories won.
Success can not be purchased
Nor yet be left to fate.
Success will never visit
The ones who sit and wait.
Success is bought with courage,
wan honor, clear and bngnt,
With honest perspiration,
With visicm and foresight.
-James Bernard Sprague, 'l9.
Success comes as a result of making
the most of one's abilities and opportuni-
ties. To achieve success, one must depend
upon one's own personal qualities, such as
lndustriousness, initiative, enduance, re-
liability and efhciency.
There is no doubt that the first point
mentioned above is' the keynote to true
success. Industriousness in the little
things, as well as the big, makes progress
move more steadily. Of course this must
be continuous and not spasmodic. There
can be no progress without industry and
no success without progress. - 1
If all the other qualities are present, but
one lacks the will to go ahead and do a
thing for oneself, the other abilities are
One must be able to withstand the dis-
appointments, failures, and long hours ol
tedious work, because endurance is essen-
tial to success.
Reliability is one of the greatest neces-
sities in acquiring success. A person may
have the capacity and knowledge to per-
form a certain duty, but if he cannot be
relied upon to do it at the time agreed, his
work is of no consequence.
Many a person wastes time through lack
of efficiency and organization. If he en-
deavors to do his work well and use his
time to the best advantage, success is

Dear Students of Franklin High School:
It hardly seems P0ssible that five years
have sped by since my days of student ac-
tivityg yet we are W191 "Time and tide
wait for no man," e -
Many of you undoubtedly are looking
forward with a note of joy and regret in-
termingled at the thought of your school
days soon to be ended.
I find myself looking forward also to
graduationg for this is the last of the
three-years' course I have happily been
privileged to take at the Providence Bible
Institute. " ' " ' '
It is the desire of each individual to at-
tain successg yet, how vague is the meaning
of success to the countless millions who
are riding the wave of uncertainty today!
I am reminded of the morals of the Lord to
the valiant warrior Joshua, "The book of
the law shall not depart out of thy mouthg
but thou shall meditate therein day and
night, that thou mayest observe to do ac-
cording to all that is written thereing for
then thou shalt make thy Way prosperous,
and then thou shalt have good success."
I believe that this is the type of success
that God would have us attain by search-
ing, accepting, and believing in His Son
Jesus and by following in His footsteps. "'
William Lyon Phelps, professor of Eng-
lish literature emeritus, of Yale University,
in his book, "Human Nature and the
Bible," says: "A college education without
a knowledge of the Bible is not so valua-
ble as a knowledge of the Bible without a
college education." I would not have you
consider for a moment that I discourage
college training and education in higher
spheres, for I am planning to enter a uni-
versity to .secure more training to be used
in His service.
My best wishes go to the students of
Franklin high school. May they a.chieve a
success which will honor their school
