Do you want a stronger
I am sure that We all do. But
our strength, in the future, de-
pends upon our schools of todayg
because in a nation's schools her
future leaders are prepared for
their respective tasks.
The students in school now are
going to be the backbone of this
country in the years to come and
these students must be educated.
Only through education can the
youth of today be qualified to
vote and serve their country in-
telligently and become more Worthy
members of society.
It is a fact that more than sixty
per cent of eligible voters today
have only an eighth grade educa-
tion or less. If this continues, do
you think that youth, without an
education, can have a true and
thorough understanding of what We
call the American way of life?
It is true that we, the young
people of today, are the leaders of
tomorrowg but this potential leader-
ship must be found and developed
to its utmost. Only through educa-
tion can we do this, as there is no
synthetic substitute for human
An enlightened public is the
safeguard of Democracy. There-

informed so that he may think con-

express themselves with clarity.
This can be achieved only through

Address to the Undergraduates
How many of us know what the
terms Democracy and Communism
Let us look for a moment at a
few privileges we have under our
democratic form of government.
Under the Bill of Rights, we
have four great freedoms-freedom
of speech, freedom of religion,
freedom of press, and freedom from
fear. In Russia the people have no
freedoms: although their claims are
that they are doing everything for
the best interest of the common
man. In fact, rulers there are doing
everything they can to wipe out all
kinds of religion. VVe had an ex-
ample of that just recently. At
Stalin's funeral there was no
prayer! Imagine living in a country
that does not believe in God!
Not too long ago, Russian leaders
drew up a constitution in which
every citizen over 18 years of age
had the right to vote. What good
did that do? They are forced to
vote, they have no right to choose
their own candidates. They must
vote as the government directs. So
we realize that in communistic
countries there are no real elections.
In America there are 150,000,000
rulers. Why? Because practically
every citizen of voting age has the
right and opportunity to vote as he
pleases, and you know, most think-
ing Americans take advantage of
this great privilege-
In our land of freedoms, we can
have assemblies unlimitedg but the
Russian people know none of these
In America you can advance as
a farmer and buy landg but in com-
munistic territory the amount of
land an individual may own is
limited. Their theme is "No man
shall be rich." Ours is "No man
shall be poor."
VVe as young people, do not
realize what a free nation this isg
but we should think seriously about
it. That thinking should make us
more determined to fight Commu-
nism. In Russia, young people can
get an education, but only with
government consent and direction
and that is entirely different from
our public education.
Democracy is not only a form of
governmentg it is a way of life.
The Jamestown settlers and many
other communities here tried social-
ism and its way of lifeg but soon all
of them starved and fell. Free en-
terprise cannot ilourish under such
restrictions, and we believe in free
Are we then going to let Com-
munism come into this free country?
Let's join the crusade for freedom
and help keep Democracy safe for

MY TRIP TO AFRICA
I shall now proceed to tell you
about my hunting trip to Africa.
In 1924 I planned a hunting trip to
British East Africa with a few of my
Wall Street friends. They were John
D. Rockefeller, J. P. Morgan II, and
a few others of my associates. We
planned to leave, May 24, 1924.
On May first I went to a sporting
goods store to buy some guns and
supplies. When I looked at the guns
I was very embarrassed. When I
looked down the barrel of the gun,
the clerk started laughing for I was
looking down the barrel all right,
into the muzzel.
We started out for Africa at 1:00
p. m., May 24, 1924 on the Prince
James. We arrived in Africa on
June 1, 1924. We started for the
interior of Africa the next morning.
On the way we took some pictures
of animals like the white zebra, elk,
and water buffalo. Q"Funny where
all these animals come from!"J
Once we were in the interior, I
went to find an elephant.
After a mile of walking, I found
a bull elephant. He saw me about
the same time I saw him. He
charged meg I fired once, twice,
three, four times before I discovered
that I had only a double barrel shot
gun. Anyway the elephant dropped
dead. When I obtained a closer
look at him, I noticed he had long
shaggy hair, curved tusks, and was
bigger than most animals.
When the rest of the group came,
they said that he was a mammouth
which was supposed to be extinct.
We followed a well-worn path that
led through a long cave After we
left the cave, we discovered a sight
never before seen in this modern
world. We saw before our excited
eyes, mammouths, sabre-tooth
tigers, three-toed horses, and all
kinds of extinct animals.
Well, this ends my story, for my
time is ended in this world.
Mae Peppard '55
A WASTE OF TIME, PERHAPS
As I was taking care of my
brothers and sisters the other even-
ing, one of my sisters, Judy, asked
me to tell a story. This is how I
"Once upon a time in the land
of Nod there lived a very rich
family. Because of their wealth,
they felt superior to everyone else."
Here Judy stopped me to ask
what "superior" meant. I neglected
to answer and went on.
"They lived along the shores of
a very nice place to fish. The
name of the large lake was Lilly
Lake. Because it was excellent
fishing, there were a lot of fisher-
men living nearby. But of course,
the rich family, who were known as
the "Vandergoulds", would have
nothing to do with thepoor fisher-
men. And knowing how the Vander-
goulds felt, in return, none of the
poorer fishermen bothered them.
There was one elderly Woman
who was the wife of one of the less
Wealthy fishermen. She came each
forenoon to help clean the Vand-
ergould house, which, of course,
really didn't need it. Whenever
she came, she had to come through
the back door and go out the same
way. Of course, Mrs. Vandergould
wouldn't want any of her friends
to see this poor old fisherman's
wife leaving or entering her fine
Her name was Martha. In re-
ality she was a very dear person!
The Vandergould children loved
her, but could only see her when
"mama" was gone. If their mother
ever caught them being friendly,
they would get a sound spanking
Working for the Vandergoulds
was Martha's only way of earning
extra money, so she took these
unwarranted insults and snide treat-
ment, and kept on working. Some-
times, when she came, she would
bring a few home-made donuts
because all of their food was store
bought. They enjoyed these very
much but, unfortunately, took them
and ate them in secret.
One morning the Vandergoulds
decided to go on a little vacation
trip to the village across the big
lake. It would be a three days
journey in their small, slow-going
boat. Martha was to go along to
keep everything clean and in order,
but was to remain on the boat while
they went about having fun. They
felt they could not take her with
them into the village. It might
"spoil" their reputation as Mrs.
So they started on their journey.
The second day a sudden sharp
wind arose, the sky darkened hur-
ridly. As the wind rose and blew
harder, the small boat tossed upon
the rough, choppy, foam-crested
waves. The heavens seemed to open
and great blinding sheets of solid
silver rain covered them. Mrs.
Vandergould grew suddenly white,
some subtle sense suddenly made
her realize they could not last long
under these conditions. For once,
I believe she really prayed, but
she didn't get upon her knees. After
all those were costly nylons!!
All of a sudden there was a
crash! The boat was flung forward
by a huge Wave, and when it fell
sharply into the trough of the
waves, one of the heavy irons of
the boat broke loose, was hurled
about, until it suddenly made an
ugly hole about the size of a per-
son's arm in the side of the boat.
No one saw this but Martha.
She hurredly fought toward the
spot, bent over gasping, battling
wind and the incoming water, thrust
her arm into the hole. The water
came in no more.
After she had stayed in this posi-
tion for seeming hours, her body
grew weaker, she lost consciousness
but still crouched there.
The Vandergoulds, who were in
the cabin below, did not even seem
to miss her. As the storm grew
calmer, finally, Mr. Vandergould
went up on deck. There in the cold-
ness and dark which the storm had
left, he stumbled upon Martha,
crouched on the deck, her arm still
keeping the water from rushing in.
He knelt and turned her body,
but all too late! Martha was dead!
I think, though, that she died
happily for she had saved someone's
And, today, on the shores of
Lilly Lake, there is a grave with
this epitaph engraved on the stone
"Here lies our beloved Martha"
and each year the Vandergoulds
replenish her grave with tears and
You see, it took the life of a
lovely woman to open the eyes of
I glanced at Judy to see if the
story had left her sad, but she sat
there amusing herself with a book.
"Well, didn't you like the story?"
I asked her. "I didn't listen!" she
answered. "You didn't tell me what
THE FROG POND
Up in the pasture and a little way beyond,
There is a large rock by a small frog pond.
I used to look forward every spring-
A little pail I would bring-
Walking up slowly beside the rock,
So I could see the iiock,
Of big frogs.
But the big ones always seemed to disappearg
But if everything was quiet, they would reappear.
It wasn't them I really was looking for,
It was the little polywogs,
Sunning themselves beside the logs.
I would scoop them up into my bucket,
Homeward slowly I would lug it.
Up everyday with the pail I would go,
Swinging it high and swinging it low!
Now comes summer's long hot weather.
Then water in the clouds seems to gather.
Then the sound of the croaking of the frogs
That jumped in and out and over the logs,
Would go away!
They never came back to play
Until the next year came around.
Then again I would hear the sound
Of the croaking of the little frogs,
Jumping in and out and over the logs.
I took a little trip down by the brook,
Just to see how everything looked!
Looking towards the distance this way and that,
It was as if winter was putting on a new spring hat
Bare hills of brown and a sky so blue,
It is about time winter was having a rendezvous!
This brook, once covered with ice,
Is singing merrilee.
A robin this morning was singing in our Maple Tree,
Up there, by the place I call the Bee Hive Hill,
CCause the bees live there.J
I hear the bees a-buzzing in the country air!
The foot prints and sled tracks are fading and are gone
Soon Spring will be singing a different song.
In the far distance is the cawing of the crow.
They're telling the world that spring is here,
Cause they know.
Yes, brown patches sticking out of the ground,
And melting white snow glittering all around,
With my dog beside me sitting on a stump,
Winter will be sliding down,
And Spring taking the jump.

THE FRESHMAN CLASS
We elected our class officers as follows:
President: Allen Downer
Vice President: Leroy Keller
Secretary: Pauline Turner
Treasurer: Sylvia Austin
Student Council: Eleanor Bryant and Allen Downer
Echo Editorial Board: Eleanor Bryant and Leroy Keller
In the fall of '52 the Freshman
class, with twenty-five members
was graciously accepted into
Freedom Academy by the upper
classmen. We appreciate your
Early in the year two of our
members left usg thus giving us a
remaining total of twenty-three
members for the rest of the year.
We hope that these will all come
back-not only next year but every
year to see us through graduation.
A perfect class is our goal. S'pose
we'll succeed? Annette Scott who
left has returned to live with her
parents in Bath, Maineg and Rita
Corey is married.
Well, of course, as you know the
Freshman class wouldn't be well
on their progressive road without
their initiation on the inevitable
"Freshman Day." The Sophomores
really did a job on us. As always
we marched through the corn fac-
tory with all eyes, quizzical and
amusing, upon us ,with our costumes
of burlap bags, old undershirts,
shoe boxes for shoes, and onions
for necklaces. CThese, I think,
were especially for Mr. Jordanj.
And here I must not forget to
mention our very flattering hair-
dos. The tiny braids all over our
heads were most becoming, and the
boys Wore their hair in pin curls to
further their feminine appeal. That
evening we had our reception
which many of you probably at-
Following the suggestion of our
home-room teacher, we decided to
collect weekly dues. The amount
in the treasury now is S20.10. Since
we are the first class to begin this
in the Freshman year, we feel we
have a head start for ourselves. We
plan to raise the amount from a
nickle a week to a dime next year.
So, by our Senior year we shall have
enough with what we are able to
raise in dinners etc., to take us on
a real interesting class trip.
Proud are we to tell of our class
athletics! For the most part, our
class is energetic and right on their
toes when it comes to sports.
After nearly a year here, we
have adapted well to our school,
teachers, and schoolmatesg and
have come to love and respect each
Since We are to have a hand in
the future of Freedom Academy, we
will try our hardest to do our best
and pursue the coming years with
vigor, interest, and earnestness, in
order that we may not only gain for
ourselves, but that we may con-
tribute something of lasting Value
to our school.

Perhaps many of you think the
girls' squad did not have too success-
ful a season because of only six
One of the reasons for not having
a better record is because we lost
so many of the first team players
last year. We were very fortunate,
however, to have the Freshman class
furnish us with many new players.
With these girls playing in new
positions, our progress was very
slowg but, by the end of the season,
everyone could see the improve-
ment of the squad.
We also had a new coach, with
whom we had to get acquainted.
And he had to learn to know us and
the best place to use our separate

has given to the girls' team.

THE TOURNAMENT CHAMPS
The Redskins of Freedom Acad-
emy again had one of their remark-
able seasons. This fme team ended
with a record of 24 wins with but
In league competition, the men
had a record of 15 wins-1 loss, to
tie for first place. By venturing out-
side the league, we won three games
and lost one along with a Win over
the Alumni. A record of 19 and 1
was posted for regular season play.
A play-off game was held at
Winslow between Freedom and
Unity to decide the county cham-
pionship. Unity won this contest
In the Waldo County Tourney, the
Academy boys got past Monroe in
the opener, and Winterport in the
semi-finals. This put them into the
finals against none other than
Unity. This time the tide turned
for the better and the Indians won
by nine points, 47-38.
We were invited to participate in
the K. V. C. Tourney held at Water-
ville and Winslow. In the first game
F. A. was selected to play Winthrop,
whom we defeated 48-39. In the
semi-finals we had to play a strong
Hallowell team. Freedom won in
an upset, a 51-36 margin. By this
win, we advanced into the finals g
the first time an Academy team had
done this. Our competition was a
wonderful team from Richmond
High. We were beaten 51-31.
Two brilliant hoopsters from F.
A. were selected by the Waldo
County Coaches for a berth on the
All-County team. They were Donald
Marcia and Paul McFarland.
Bob Hotham was elected by his
teammates as captain for next sea-
son. Bob was also the champion
foul shooter of the school and he
represented us in the District Foul
Shooting Contest held at Colby
This year, by graduation, the
varsity team will lose D. Marcia, D.
Maxim, P. McFarland, C. Giggey,
R. Gray, B. Wentworth, K. Hall, and
P. Myrick. These boys will surely
be missed, but under the capable
coaching of Mr. Cosgrove, a team
as good, or better, can be built.
He has some mighty fine material
from which to choose. We will all
be backing them when next season

CHEERLEADERS OF '52 AND '53
As usual, the season of basket-
ball rolls around in the fall. That is
the time for the selecting of players
for the teams. It is also the time for
the selecting of another group- the
This past fall We had the annual
tryouts for cheerleaders, with
fifteen girls trying out. From this
group six were chosen as follows:
Delta Fowler, Mary Turner, Lorene
Clark, Elinor Corey, Lucille Shaw,
and Grace Black, fco-captainsj,
with Mrs. Johnson as our coach.
Through the help of the student
council, we have been able to se-
cure new uniforms. These were
a one piece uniform of maroon and
white satin. These were made with
the help of Mrs. Johnson and our
mothers. Many thanks are ex-
tended to them all.
Many new cheers were made up
this year, so that we had quite a
variety. Our specialty was the
school song which we took pride
We would like to take this
opportunity to thank the many fans
who have supported us with our
cheers. It certainly has been ap-
preciated! Also, to those that made
the banquets at Waterville and
Freedom possible, We extend our
It certainly has been fun cheer-
ing the teams on to victory. We
are proud of our boys who have
rolled up such an excellent record.

The Camera Club has been found
by many to be a wholesome and
enjoyable activity. However, we
were not able to accommodate as
many students at one time as we
would have liked. Nevertheless,
we do find that it is a benefit to the
individualg as well as a time of
relaxation after a strenuous day of
studies. After one's studies are
done, only then can one participate
in this or any other activity.
We purchased some new supplies
and equipment last fall, and find
we have adequate equipment for
developing films, printing pictures,
and drying prints. It would be
desirable to have an enlarger for
enlarging prints. This would be
a worthwhile goal to strive for, and,
with all sincerity of mind, I believe
the Camera Club should be con-
tinued and expanded for the better-
ment of our school, Freedom

An American soldier, billeted in
England, didn't like the Way the

the boys asked, "Why does that
man go around patting and pinch-
ing the cows?"
Mr. Littlefield: "He is making
