EDITORIALS The publishing of this year book is made possible by the help of our friends and ad- vertisers, to whom we extend sincere thanks. To the Alumni, also, who have con- tributed to the alumni section or to the purchase of our piano, we Wish to express our gratitude, For their cooperation in publishing the "Voice," I wish to express to the editorial staff and to all those who have assisted in the publicaction of the 4'Voice" my sincere appreciation. Gerald Wilbur, Editor-in-Chief. Ill his ik 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 music. H 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 Piano Pot-Pourri 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 THE VorCE 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 THE SCHOOL? 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 S24.7'7. 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? IN MEMORIAM 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. -Margaret Eldridge, '38, THE Vorca CHARLES B.

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. 1907 Oh, diary, am I proud! The students have published the first "Voice" this year, but as yet I can't boast of any graduates. 1908 6JuneD 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. p p THE Vorca 11 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 ambitious students. 1915 My hope of having the commercial course added has been realized, and another teacher has been added, too. Am I proud! 1932 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 them. I 1933 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 1937 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 third-place trophy. 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 with us." 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- held ? 12 THE VOICE 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- brarian. 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 damages. B Only one book may be taken out at a time. 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- newal period. H SCHOOL LIBRARY ARTICLE III-LOST BOOKS A 'Ihe loss of a book must be reported immediately to the librarian, who Will make the necessary arrange- ments. 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- rowers. 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- let." 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. -Hazel Wilbur, '38, Librarian. 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," Celand Hopkins Dr. Samuel Hcvbsln-next door neighbor, Donald' Piper 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, Edward Hardison Lola Ellington-a local belle ....... Bette Donnell Almira Gudgeon-president of ladies' aid, Evelyn Googins Byron Longly-principal of grammar school, Gerald Wilbur 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 pink tights. 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 supper." 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. -Harriet Edmunds, '39, 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 it has been held at Castine. Last year, at baseball, we took .second place. Mt. Desert beat us by the score of 13-3. ' 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- 14 THE VOICE 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. In the "Achievement" tests, Kenneth Weatherbee, who is now attending Ogle- thorpe University in Georgia, won first place in American Government. Gerald Wilbur, of Eastbrook, won fourth place in THE FRANKLIN HIGH 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 geometry. Donald Piper won third place in general science. This year we hope to do better in division, with the help of our principal, Mr. Jones, and of the assistant, Miss Gill- ings, and with the co-operation of the students. -Verncn Dalzell, '39. SCHOOL GLEE CLUB meeting, the club obtained money to buy music. The organization has received many in- vitations to sing at school functions, con- tests, churches, and organizations, and were pleasantly entertained at the home of Mrs. Minnie Wilbur of Eastbrook.

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 barn. 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. -Bradley Bunker, '39. THE VOICE 15 LITERARY MURDER DEFERRED 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- truder. ' 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 16 THE Voice 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 'troubles -Gerald Wilbur, '38. THE INTRUDER 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, said mother. 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 song. 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- lapsed. 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 'Frm Voice 17 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 me screaming. 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 escape my mind. -Harriett Edmunds, '39. 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 at once." "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- party of 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 18 THE VOICE 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, NEW-FOUND HAPPINESS 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 very odd. Such a person was Ellen Pratt who, at thirty-five, was considered a queer old THE VOICE 19 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 fear her. 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- ing. 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 milk. 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 eyes. 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- 20 THE Voice 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 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 told it. -Evelyn Googins, '39. 1 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. I-Ieathershlre. "Whoever he is, I wish he would hurry up. I wonder who that beautiful girl who just came in can be. Those luxurious furs around her neck must have cost Plenty! Gee, I wish I knew -her, but I never get the breaks. My gosh! I believe she is coming over here!" The girl who came toward him certainly was beautiful. She was small and beauti- fully formed, with a small hat set on her golden hair. "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." H THE Vorca Z1 "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- ly ready." "Which means that I must be going, as I have a dinner date," said Mr. Heather- shire. "Once more I ask you not to put your money into that fool company. You will surely be sorry," he admonished, as he was leaving. "Father, it's no use to ask me, I am de- termined to joln the company," she re- plied. "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- ten. 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 cried. "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, and, sobbing, she explained what had hap- pened. In the midst of her explanation the bell rang and the bellboy announced that a Mr. Greyland was there to see his son. "Why!" Mr. Heathershire exclaimed with surprise when Mr. Greyland entered, "Aren't you Banker Greyland, the million- aire?" V "Well," Mr. Greyland laughed, a bit ern- ba.rrassed, "I guess you are right, but Where is Garth?" Mr. Greyland was an older edition of his son, with the same generous mouth and that something about him which invited trust. When Margo's father explained that Garth was married, .Mr. Greyland, with a choleric expression, asked where his wife was. But after he had been in- troduced to Margo he said, "I don't be- lieve Garth has done so badly after all, but where is he?" "I am going for him now," Margo said. 22 THE VOICE with a look of happiness on her face be- cause her faith had been restored in himg he hadn't married her for the hundred dollars after all. It seemed to Margo as if the taxi merely crawled across the city to the Graymore hotel. -Margaret Eldridge, '39. . A MIDWINTER'S DAY DREAM In the little town of Egypt, just west of F. H.

I will tell you of one of these occasions. Once we were studying hard during our spare period. All at once we heard Ru- blnoil? tuning his violin. At iirst it sounded rather like an old door-hinge that needed Sllnfl oil. 'But gradually it changed to the shrill scream of an African night-owl, wierd :ind lonely. Then, to our dismay, came music-yes, real music-sweet and clear, lifting one into a heavenly dream, and We were float- ing along with the hypnotism of Rubinoff's "sweet music." But lo! the dream became a nightmare. As Rubinoff reached that Wild crescendow- pop-the violin string brokeg so did the strings of Dompey's heart, for he made up a terrible, frightful face and cried until recess. fEditor's note: Rubinoff is Weyman Billings, alias Dompeyg his violin is a stretched elastic.l FINDING A RENT She led me to the second floorg The room was dull and bareg The light came dimly from withoutg Gray dust was everywhere.

Dear Sirs: Three Weeks ago I bought one stick of your guaranteed gum. I chewed it for three days and nights. At the end of this time I parked it on the bedpost for one night. Ofn the first day of October I resumed my a.ctivities of testing the so-called "Chewem Special." By this time the gum had changed color and lost at least one- half of its flavor. During meals, I would hide it under the table. I am only trying to impress on you that I took the best of care of the so-called "CheWem Special." After chewing it for three weeks, I find that it has no lubricating qualities and has turned slightly hard. In other works, gentlemen, I find your 'iChewem Special" very unsatisfactory. I will be expecting you to refund my money in the near fu- ture. Very truly yours, Miss Chatterbox Clickteeth. -Betty Donnell, '42. ' THE VOICE 27 MOVIE ALBUM The Merry-Go-Round of 1938-F. H. S.

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 cup. 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 hurdles. 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. -Bradley Bunker, Athletic Editor. BOYS' BASKETBALL 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- 30 THE Voice g ,g lin, we Won an exciting game by a .Score of 24-20. Due to the loss of two good pla.yers upon whom we had been depending, the first team did not win many games at the beginning of the season. Out of the scheduled games played the iirst team won five and lost nine, thus keeping them from the tournaments. Next year's outlook seems brighter. None of the Ilrst team regulars and only two oi the second team will be lost through graduation this year. All the boys in school have cooperated well by attending practice regularly. We 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. -Bradley Bunker, Athletic Editor. GIRLS' BASKETBALL 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, Miss Pumphrey. 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. Following is the basketball sechedule for the season: Franklin at Ellsworth, 19-31. Winter Harbor at Franklin, 22-22. Franklin at Milbridge, 14-32. ,Sullivan at Franklin, 55-9. Winter Harbor at Franklin, 36-17. Milbridge at Franklin, 23-19. Franklin at Sullivan, 37-10. Ellsworth at Franklin, 19-22. Franklin at Castine, 15-37. Castfne at Franklin, 29-40. Celand Hopkins, a pretty good guy, Has spent seven years in Franklin high. He tries to keep the Freshmen straight, And thinks he does, at any rate. He sits in his .seat and does not roam, And now and then sees Martha home. He had a mustache growing swell, It made his face look like-, there goes the bell. -Avery and Billings. THE Voice 31 ALUMNI 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 to remember. 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 accomplishment . 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- fers the girl and boy who is willing to Work. The Way isn't easy, and you may meet many discouragements from those those who haven't in any Way made a suc- cess of lifeg but keep your head high and your purpose clear in mind. , Success, in short, is only what you make 32 THE VOICE jj it. If you are willing to strive with all the splendid energy that nearly all young people are blessed with, and reach for the very highest goal in life, your efforts will be rewarded. -Freda Taylor, '23. Bryant 8a Stratton Commercial School is situated in the heart of Boston, being near the Boston Public Library, the Boston Pub- lic Gardens, the Art Museum, the capitol building of Massachusetts, and other im- portant buildings. 'I'his school is ranked with the best in New England. It has very high standards for a person to receive a certificate of di- plomacy from the school. To obtain this certificate. an average rank of eighty-iive is required. It has an enrollment of over 600 stu- dents. One may study almost any subject in the secretarial or stenographic courses, such as bookkeeping, typing, English, shorthand, income tax, salesmanship, of- fice practice, and many other subjects used in business departments. I think Bryant 8a Stratton has a tenden- cy to like Maine teachers. During the time I have been there, I have met several teachers from Maine. A few are Miss Young, from Lamoineg Mr. Spurling, from Cranberry Isles, and Mr. Sprague, from Bath. Mr. Alman spends his summers in South Surry. Many students come from Maine and other states near and far. 'When I met a girl from Hawaii, I decided I wasn't very far from home. Pupils come to school by subway, street cars and train. The rates are lowered con- siderably by purchasing monthly tickets. School begins in the morning at 9 o'clocl: and the session ends at 2:15, with a half- hour for lunch. I have enjoyed this type of study very much and I hope to 'finish the course. I know I shall remember the days at Frank- lin high school, and the fun we had on basketball trips and other activities. -Roxie Bragdon, '37. Dear Alumni: From my past experience I find several things of importance for you all. Whatever you do, be faithful, work hard, be honest, and make friends, they will help in the time of need. A friend of mine found for me the position which I now hold as bill collector for the Robert's Motor Company. I enjoy my work very muchg my hours are long, but interesting. -Clyde A. Bragdon. Success 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 long list. I am inclined to believe that most people, having arrived at maturity, look upon suc- cess as the achievement, to at least a 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 THE Vorca 33 social approval and the recognition by one's associates that the circle, whether large or small, in which one llves and works, is the better for one's having been in it. To do all this does not require a large financial income. Too many relatively poor people have lived and are living, what I call, successful lives to warrant my inclusion of wealth as a primary requisite to success. May I close by Wishing you and your col- leagues in school a happy year and a very successful future. Sincerely yours, Walter H. Blaisdell. , Success 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 ineffective. ' 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 more certain. If a person has the qualities of indus- triousness, initiative, endurance, reliability, and efficiency, success for him is immin- ent. ' B - '- -Julia Swan, '36. ., Providence Bible Institute 110 State Street Providence, Rhode Island 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 - 5. 34 THE Vo1cE 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 name. Sincerely yours, -Sumner D. Crabtree, '33, Q Q ,xx " E,.N Sdiri, 9 o J X EXCHANGES Franklin High School wishes to thank many schools who have kindly exchanged year books with us. Much enjoyment has been derived from these as well as helpful suggestions. Looking at the basketball and baseball groups is most interesting to team members because' it is fun to find the person against whom each played. In order that we might make our school paper more interesting, we would welcome any criticisms that other schools could give us. The school hopes that every reader of "The Voice," enjoys it as well as We have enjoyed other school papers, and that another year We may have even more exchanges. -Exchange Editor.
