But in order to get that victory, we must be alert so that we do not lose the liberties which have made America great and kept her free. Of equal importance to winning the war is the preservation within America of her Democracy-a pattern for the rest of the world to fol- low in the years of reconstruction that are now waiting just ahead of us, for if we defeat the enemy abroad only to lose our liberties here at home, victory will be incomplete. In due course, the voters of this country will speak effectively on what kind of a peace they are fighting for and the kind of America they want after the war. At the ballot box the people, voting as Americans and not as Democrats or Republicans, will be seeking new advantages, and will determine whether the American dream has ended or whether, after the war, it will continue to guide our destinies to even higher accomplishments, and lead other nations out of their confusion into the democratic way of life. Erwin Nickless '43 This is the end of another successful year at Freedom Academy. There have been a few changes here because of the war. This fall, after school had begun, we had one afternoon off in which scrap iron was collected for defense. It really was amazing to see how much could be gathered in such a short time. We also col- lected rubber, and what we did do, I know helped the boys fighting at the front. We had started school lunches this fall down at the K. of P. Hall, but after Christmas it was discontinued for a few weeks. The lunches were started again the last of January, and have been continued.

Ella Tyler, Sherman Fogg, Kenneth Giles, and Edward Albert left dur- ing the year which leaves us with nineteen. A few days after school started, the Sophomores had us march down to the corn factory with the girls wearing one long and one short stocking and their cloths wrong side out, the boys wore skirts with one pant leg rolled up. On October 9, we had the much dreaded Freshmen Reception with stunts and a social afterwards. The Class Officers for the year were elected as follows: President, Marillyn Hamel, Vice-President, John Ingraham, Secretary, Louise Tyler, and Treasurer, Erdene Knight. About all of our class went out for Basketball with most of them making the team and taking part in the games. Because of the war, we had no prize reading this year, to the relief of most of us. ' Il. ' Erdene Knight '46 ix "' "V .,9 i 2, Qxxt-1' Sophomote X, - illfxfl ASW On September twenty-eighth this year our class began school with twelve members. The last of the year one member, Paul Hamel, left us. Sophomore Class Officers were elected as follows: President, Jean Fowler, Vice-President, Janet Currie, Secretary, Ruby McLellan, Treasurer, Helen McFarland. At the beginning of the year, we gave the "Freshies" a hearty reception, we also dressed up the "Freshies" and took them down to the corn shop. Sophomore boys and girls taking part in basket-ball are: Mildred Stevens, Janet Currie, Helen McFarland, Thelma Raven, Paul Flye and Wendell Glidden. The only Sophomore cheer leader is Jean Fowler. Ruby McLellan '45 guniofzs We started our Junior year off with a "crash" and ended up with a "bang," having twenty-two members in all. During the year the fol- lowing five members of our class left school: Calvin White, Donald Spaulding, Marshall Rhein, William Nutt, and Clayton Thompson. This left us only five boys. Although we missed those boys, the girls kept WWW' 9 up their courage and we pulled through the year coming out on top. We elected our class officers as follows: President, Shirley Nutt, Vice-President, Theodore Knowlton, Secretary Arlene Clark, Treas- urer, Hazel Clark, representatives to the Student Council, Ruth Grass and Clayton Thompson. Our class can easily be rated as "A" in dramatics. Two of our boys, Ernest Tweedie and Theodore Knowlton took part in the Senior Play. Many of our members were in the one-act plays put on by the dramatics class. Four of our boys are "lettermen" in basketball. So even though we have not as large a class at the end as at the beginning we can support the school activities in a big way. Ruth Grass '44 Seniovs Our class numbers only seven, the smallest in the school. At the beginning of the year we elected our class officers as follows: Presi- dent, Vivian Voseg Vice-President, Raymond Stevens: Secretary, Sarah Waterman, Treasurer, Thelma Benner. The representatives to the Student Council are: President, Fred Drake, Vice-President, Sarah Waterman, Treasurer, Raymond Stevens, Senior Class representatives, Thelma Benner and Erwin Nickless. In the fall we had our Senior drama DUMMY, which was patron- ized very successfully. February 12, we went to the Preble Studio in Waterville to have our pictures taken. Mable Raven '43 10 ofifefzaiwze NSHEP HOYT'S DOG" It was a dark night in July. I was coming along a mountain ridge from Fredericton where I had been earlier in the evening. As I got to the end of the ridge I saw a large form loom up in front of my horse. It frightened himg he began to gallop along towards home. The shadow was of a large dog, larger than my horse. It seemed to float along beside my wagon. I was startled for a momentg I craked my whip at the shadow and the whip went right through it. As I neared the end of the mountain, the shadow of the dog departed slowly up the moun- tain side. I stopped my horse and watched the dog disappear down the other side of the mountain. When I arrived home I told my father of the strange shadow of the dog. He told me that it was what was called "Shep Hoyt's Dog." It was said to have been Captain Kid's dog which he left to guard his treasure which had been buried on the mountain. The dog had been seen many times, going down one side of the mountain and coming up the other side. It was just a large shadow which appeared there every night around midnight. Janet Currie '45 WHAT AMERICA MEANS TO ME To me America stands for everything that is right, and now is the time for every patriotic American to be thinking just what Amer- ica means to him or to her. If America means anything at all to them, they will want to be doing something to help the war effort. If you are not old enough to join the armed forces, you can work in a war plant, if not that, plant crops, if you havn't much ground, you could have a garden, or hire land. The American people are made up of every nationality in the world, and the Germans that have lived here any length of time would, I think, fight for America. I read a story in a magazine about a Jap-A anese fellow that tried to enlist and the men at the recruiting office asked him which side was going to win, and on which side he preferred to fight. He replied that the Americans would win the war, and to the second question he answered, "If I wasn't for America, I wouldn't be enlisting." All in all, I think that America is one swell land, and it will give anyone a fair chance to live and be happy. In a few simple words, I can write what all Americans are thinking: "Thank God that I am an American." Ernest Tweedie '44 11 AN EXCITING DAY One cold day in March, I was awakened by my kid brother splash- ing cold water in my face. In my anger and without thinking, I stepped out of bed and brought my feet down smack-on a cold floor. Not only this, but I had gotten up on the wrong side of the bed. I started looking for my slippers, but could only find one. So I hurried out to dress by the living room fire. I opened the door and was met by a pillow and my slipper-My kid brother again. I picked up the pillow and threw it at him, then I got him out of the room. I dressed hurridly, and with no light. About fifteen minutes later, I found myself washing in cold water and trying to figure out what was happening. I next started preparing my breakfast. Guess what! I put cereal in my coffee cup, and my coffee in my cereal dish! Mad? I sure was. These few incidents are just a part of what happened all day at school. I stepped out on the platform and got hit in the eye with snow ball. I started off the steps, all the snow off the roof went down my neck. I got out of the truck and slipped and fell in front of an on- coming car. Someone helped me up and hurried me to the side of the road. No bones broken! I was thinking it over after a while and made up my mind I'd had a pretty close call. Now just to mention a few of the incidents that happened during the day. First thing, I fell up the stairs, tore my stocking and banged my knee. Not only this, but for the first time since I started at Free- dom Academy, I got caught passing a note. What happened? Well, I read that note in front of the whole school! Was my face red! I went home at three-thirty, went into the house and caught my toe on the rug. I fell over a chair and burned my arm on the stove. I went over to the mirror to see where I burned my arm, and what do you know? The mirror fell to the floor and smashed into a thousand pieces. Seven years bad luck! This had gone far enough. I was going to find out the cause of all my bad luck. I went to the calendar, and the date was Friday the thirteenth of March. Ruth Grass '44 TRIP TO ISLESBORO On March 12, the basket-ball team took a trip to Islesboro. We started from here about one-thirty. Mr Thurston, Mrs. Perkins, and Theodore Knowlton took their cars. We got over to Islesboro about four o'clock, and from four until about five o'clock, we spent looking the island over. About five o'clock, we went to the places where we were going to stay and got our supper. After supper some of us boys I2 rode around until about seven o'clock, then we went to the hall and started getting ready for the game. The girls played first and lost. Then the boys played. We won in this game, but I think it was the hardest game I ever played. The next morning we started for home around eight o'clock and we got back to Freedom around ten. Howard Drake '44 SCHOOL YEAR When basket-ball is over, And baseball begins, That's the time they And ask, Where's Mr. Chick? look around Well, Mr. Chick is in Helping to fight those Japs, There won't be many of them left When Chick gets in their laps. the army, Now there's another matter That has taken place this year, We have two new teachers, A man and a woman here. , The gentleman is Mr. Thurston, principal of our school, The The lady is Miss Rollins, The teacher of English rules. -Pearl Carmichael '44 PUNCTUATION MARKS Of all the punctuation marks I think the period is the busiest man. He is really like a traffic cop, Line by line he blocks the words And brings them to a stop. The question mark is a very funny fellow, He is small, but very wise, He asks so many questions For a fellow of his size. Of all the punctuation marks I like the comma best, Because when I am out of breath He just simply lets me take a rest. -Betty Bradstreet '45 A RADIO RIDDLE Now l'm going to ask you a riddle, He's very famous and plays a fiddle, He's on the radio every Sunday eve., And he and Fred Allen do enjoy, I believe, To give each other dirty cracks, And slam each other behind their backs He was up to Bangor quite a few weeks ago, And gave the people a wonderful show. He entertained the soldiers of Dow Field And all their sorrows he tried to heal. I'm sure you have heard his big, fat announcer, I think he is one you may call a "bouncer", The squeaky tenor on his radio show Is one, I'm sure, you all must know. The lady actress who receives great applause Keeps the show rolling without a pause. And still another who I think is best His jokes surpass all of the rest. His voice is hoarse, his skin is dark, But with me, he hits the mark. I'm sure you all have guessed by now- Yes, lt's Jack Benney! And how! ! -Erdene Knight. '46 a 13 SPRINGTIME THOUGHTS CWritten in Ballad Forml ,Tis The evening slowly creeping in, sun is sinking lower, The dishes have been washed and dried And I've just swept the floor. The baby's eating his supper now And talking in his baby way, It's peaceful as I'm sitting here Thinking at the close of day. The sun reHects upon the window And also upon the floor, Those rays seem bright and calm to me As the sun is sinking lower. The days are warmer and longer now, 'Tis spring, I guess that's true, The snow covered fields are clearing And the sky is a pretty blue. The streets are thawing slowly And the birds beginning to call, This all seems very nice to me, But the sun is best of all. I guess the summer is rather nice With its warm days and nights, The fall is Very pretty too With all its autumn sights. I like the winter too, I guess, For all its snow and ice, But best of all I like the spring It seems so bright and nice. E veryone has his favorites, Of cloths, and eats, and time, Cf all the favorite things there are, I believe that spring is mine. You can't express some things in words, Mere words don't express your feelings, You can't say why and how by these, You have to see to believe in. One can't say why he likes the trees, And the sky of a pretty blue, I can't say in words why I like spring, So this will have to do. -Jean Clark ,44 OLD GLORY When I see Old Glory waving in the air, Waving o'er this land so fair, When the stars and strips I see, It makes me sing and shout with glee. After this wicked war is o'er, When heart-ache and sorrows we know no more Old Glory will still be waving high In this true American sky. Now if we want this war to cease, We must help production to increase, Help to make America more than swell, And keep the Hag we love so well. -Barbara Upham '46 RATIONING Don't be a sourpuss as rationing gets underway Donlt go around grumbling about it every day It isn't so bad as you'll find out When you see what it's all about, For it's helping our boys who are in training To keep their weight and keep on gaining. I'm sure we don't really mean to grumble Any more than a cannon can help its rumble. So every time you begin to sputter About your coffee, tea and butter, Think again just what it's for And let's all beat the Axis in the war. -Betty Webber '46 POEM WITHOUT A NAME I can't think of a thing to write I guess today I'm not very bright. As I look around the room I see All the students filled with glee. And yet, I'm so blue, so very blue I can't think of a thing to tell to you. But I guess this is enough for anyone to write Especially for someone who's not very bright. -Arthena Taylor '46 14 LEST WE FORGET The stars upon the field of blue Stand out as states united, Our flag waves high over many lands, Those countries that are fighting. The ones who for their country die Their memories have not ceased, But live they shall through many years As ones that died for peace. Let's do our share, we will, we must, Today why not begin? Buy stamps and bonds and do your part To help our fighting men. -Margene Stewart '44 MY POEM What shall I write? What shall I write? With emptiness my head does ring, I guess I'1l wait until tonight, For I canlt think of anything. Everyone 'round me is laughing and V fooling But I must think of something, I musn't start any whispering For my brains a poem must bring. Shall I write about milking the cow? Or shall I make it a goat? My brain surely is empty right now, So empty I'm sure it could float. Guess I'll write a toast to Herr Hitler, No, that wouldn't sound right, Shall I write about the "romantic fiddler' No, guess I'll wait 'till tonight. How can a fool like me write a poem? Now that question I ask of you, Can't write about Paris, Greece or Rome, So guess this will have to do. IN ENGLISH CLASS We all came to class today With our lessons well prepared To find our lesson had been changed To something twice as bad. Now we must try to write something Some poetry or some prose, Everybody is busy writing, But what I'll write nobody knows. The teacher said, 'Thing hard and fast," We have no time to spare, For we must have some material, Our year book to prepare. So I shall try to write something And see if it will pass, Because you don't get ranked for nothing When you're in English class. I think I'll get a D for this, I've done all within my power, The next time they want me to write a poem Please give me more than an hour. -Lila Raven '44 -Thelma Benner '43 15 Uqlumni Freedom, Maine April 6, 1943 Dear Alumni Editor: Looking back almost a year to twenty-six members of the class of 1942, I find it'rather difficult to learn of their exact positions in our so rapidly changing world. Our three honor students were Shirley Bessey, Margaret Marden and Hazel Tyler. Shirley is working as vigorously as ever at home in Knox. Margaret, or better known as "Mugs," to all the gang, attends Bangor Maine School of Commerce. Hazel has taken the name of Mrs. Stephen Cross and resides in Freedom Village. Mary Knowlton who had previously been at home in Freedom is now in Virginia. The other girls who are working at home are Beatrice Hanson, Myrtie Curtis, Marguerite Penney and Marie Clark all of Knox. Also Doris fHustusJ Abbott of Knox, and Evelyn fSteWartJ Drew of Free- dom. Of the six boys in our class Daniel "Judge" Raven is working on the farm in Knox, Clair Barstow who has been in the Bath Iron Works is now waiting for the " call." The other four boys are now under Uncle Sam's guidance in the Army. Carleton L. Curtis at Camp Pickettg Merton M. Keller enlisted after attending Northeastern Uni- versityg Ralph L. Overlock at Fort Devens, Mass. for a short time, and Carleton B. Flye is in Missouri waiting patiently for his transfer to Oregon. Mildred Emerson is married to Harold Abbott, and while he works for Uncle Sam she lives with her mother in Clinton. Another soldier's wife, Frances fYeatonJ Hustus has employment in Belfast. Also working there is Hilma Blenis. Muriel fNuttJ Bowerman is living in Augusta Where both she and her husband are working. Farmington State Normal School houses one of our classmates, Rebecca Ward, whose home town is Thorndike. She is taking a Gen- eral Course which includes Home Economics. The remaining four on my memory list are Phyllis Turner who works in the Augusta State Hospitalg Idella Clark now in Portlandg Hester Raven working in Knox, and Bernese Ravin residing in New Haven, Connecticut. 16 I am listed as a Freshmen of Emerson College in Boston and in terested especially in the Orotory Courses and Little Theater Work I certainly find, as I am sure all our members do that our motto No Victory Without Labor" has proven true to form. No doubt they extend with me our very Best Wishes to all of you Sincerely, Ruth Barstow Bryant Freda Flye Cornelius Larrabee Mildred McDonald Burleigh Raven John Raven Virginia Stewart Spaulding Mary Todd Clayton Alexander Alfreda Clark Welch Eleanor Craig Leland Belgard Stephen Cross.

Everyone had a pleasant summer. When school began, we had four teachers, Mr. Fletcher, Mrs. Fletcher, Mrs. Higgins and Miss Wing, but we had no Agriculture teacher. It was arranged so that the boys could take other subjects to make up for this course. Later, Mrs. Fletcher had to go back to Crosby High School in Belfast, so we got along for a while with three teachers. Mr. Fletcher and Mrs. Higgins taught Mrs. Fletcher's classes. Our schedule had to be changed a great deal, and the teachers had double work to do. In February, Mr. Fletcher passed in his resignation and we were fortunate enough to secure two new teachers, Miss Rollins and Mr. Thurston. Our schedule was again changed, but our new teachers were very nice to us and liked our ways of managing the school. Due to the war, we have had no speaking contests. - We also changed our Friday morning assemblies and omitted them, but three days in the week, we have a Devotional Period, and every other week, Mr. Hooten, minister of our Congregational Church, whom we are very fortunate to have, comes in to speak to us and sing Negro Spirituals. We have had rather hard times getting basket-ball games, but our teachers and basket-ball managers have tried to find a way. We think they have done well in helping us make our trips successful and en- joyable to all. On Tuesday afternoons we listened to the Vfictory Corps program on the radio. We decided to have Physical Education, so every after- noon, in activity period, we began to have it instead of basket-ball practice. The boys and girls had the Physical Education on a rotated schedule. Miss Wing was the girls' instructor, Mr. Fletcher the boys' Later we decided we would have to have basket-ball practice instead of Physical Education because we couldn't do all of our practice after school as some of the pupils had to leave on the school bus. In order to make up time which we lost by not beginning school at the first of September, we are having six periods a day instead of five, and we have only a half hour at noon and ten minutes for recess, thus, we make up one day each week. We have had a very successful year, and our teachers have helped us to make it so. ' Janet Currie '45 20 Home gconomics This year the Home Economics classes have been successfully conducted by our new Home Economics instructor, Miss Muriel Wing. All classes have had units in the glory of Home Economics, which you all know is cooking. The freshmen have taken up Foods, Clothing, Personal Develop- ment, Grooming, and Crafts. Some of the garments they have made were aprons, skirts and blouses. In the spring they will have a unit on Crafts. A Valentine party was given for Freshmen boys and eighth grade students. The Sophomores have taken Etiquette, Table Service, Foods and have served two lunches. They have also made more difficult gar- ments in clothing. The Juniors have taken Table Service, Foods, Clothing and Grooming. In their foods work, the Seniors served a supper to the principals of surrounding towns, they have also taken units on Personal Devel- opment, Family Relationship, and Etiquette. All classes have two major projects in Foods, Clothing, Home Decoration, Child Development, Crafts, or some other phase of Home Economics. This work is done outside of class. Also there are one or more such problems done in class. It is a requirement of the State Department, Qsince our Home Economics department is classed as being Vocationalj, that each student do either two major, or one major and two minor projects during each year.

Raymond Stevens '43 gxclzanges LIBERTY-Walker High Banner-We like your poetry and literature. but think that your book could be improved by more pictures. ALBION-Besse Breeze-Your year book is very good. The jokes are excellent, but we think the number of poems and stories should be a little more evenly divided in number. BROOKS-Morsonian-We like your book. Your selection of pictures is good. The jokes are also good, but a few more might be added next time. SOUTH CHINA-Pinnacle-Your book is well arranged. The idea of haing the poetry distributed through the editorials and literary sec- tion is good.

Although the girls' basket-ball team did not prove to do so well this year, it being our first year of actual playing, we did have many good times at the games we played. Because of gas shortage, we could not play all of the teams we usually play: however, we did play games with Albion, Unity, Brooks, and Islesboro. We also played two alumni games. I think everyone liked the trip to Islesboro best of all. We all en- joyed the ferry ride and no one became seasick. Miss Wing, Mrs. Higgins, Mrs. Perkins, Boyden Hall, and Mr. Thurston accompanied us on this trio. Since Mr. Fletcher resigned, Raymond Stevens and Fred Drake have been coaching us assisted by Miss Wing. We think they have been doing a fine job. We hope to win more games next year. 28 Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom First Team Players Louise McFarland Helen McFarland Shirley Nutt Mildred Stevens Thelma Raven Arlene Clark Substitutes Jean Clark, Janet Currie Second Team Players Beatrice Thompson June Tweedie Louise Tyler Elizabeth Webber Barbara Upham Arthena Taylor Winona Larrabee Summary F.A.

The team gave a very good account of itself in all the games we played with other schools: being defeated only by Morse on Morse's floor, and by Winterport on our floor. The team should do as well if not better next year as it is losing only two lettermen by graduation and it has some good "subs" to take their places. The lettermen this year are: Captain Raymond Stevens, Ernest Tweedie, Laurel Drew, Paul Flye, Howard Drake, and Fred Drake, with John Ingraham, Milford Nickless, Wendell Glidden, and Leroy 30 Nickless as "subs" In addition to the games listed in the following summary we had three other games with the alumni, two of which we lost. 3 Summary F.A.
