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 resources. An enlightened public is the safeguard of Democracy. There- fore, each citizen should be well informed so that he may think con- structively and make wise decisions concerning public affairs. These citizens must be able to listen, to read with understanding, and to express themselves with clarity. This can be achieved only through education. To educate America's youth sufficiently, We must have better schools and more qualified teachers. Today, as you are Well aware, bet- ter qualified teachers is the more serious problem facing America. What can We as citizens do about it? Are We Willing to sacrifice for our children, our state, and our country? The last question must be answered "Yes", for only through the efforts of today's generation will the generation of tomorrow be stronger, more intelligent, and independent.

Honor Essay 2nd. Honor Essay 3rd. Honor Essay History Address to the Undergraduates Prophesy Will Gifts DEMOCRACY versus COMMUNISM How many of us know what the terms Democracy and Communism really mean? 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 pleasures. 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 enterprise. 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 America. Charlene Smith '53 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 began. "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 house! 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 for it. 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. Vandergould said. 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 life. And, today, on the shores of Lilly Lake, there is a grave with this epitaph engraved on the stone above it: "Here lies our beloved Martha" and each year the Vandergoulds replenish her grave with tears and beautiful flowers. You see, it took the life of a lovely woman to open the eyes of foolish people." 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 'superior' meant." 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. 23 THE JUMP 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 hospitality, folks. 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- tended. 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 other. 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. Eleanor Bryant '56 Leroy Keller '56 GIRLS' BASKETBALL SQUAD 1st, row, l. to r., June Larrabee, Irene Scribner, Maxine Downer, Eleanor Bryant, Nancy Brown, Janice Raven. 2nd, row, l. to r., Mr. Jordan, Mary Lou Heald, Rowena Flye, Gladys Brown, June Bowman, Louise Emerson, Carolyn Cates, Sylvia Austin, Mary Ingraham. Perhaps many of you think the girls' squad did not have too success- ful a season because of only six wins. 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 abilities. With these difficulties to over- come, don't you agree that we did pretty well? We wish to thank Mr. Jordan, our coach, for the fine job of coaching he didg and also thank the cheer- leaders for their support at all the games. Last but not least, we wish to thank our manager, Mary Ingra- ham, for all the care and time she has given to the girls' team. 37 Those who went out for basket- ball are as follows: Captain, June Bowman, Captains-elect, Mary Lou Heald and Carolyn Cates. Others were June Larrabee, Maxine Downer, Louise Emerson, Irene Scribner, Gladys Brown, Sylvia Austin, Nancy Brown, Eleanor Bryant, Rowena Flye, and Janice Raven.

We hope that the season this spring will be a successful one. We want to thank Mr. Jordan, our new coach, for the fine job he has done in coaching us girls.

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 three losses. 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 48-41. 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 College. 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 rolls around. REGULAR SCHEDULED GAMES F. A. "'70 Stockton 34 F. A. 66 Erskine 43 F. A. 46 Unity 45 F. A. 65 Liberty 23 F. A. 56 VVinterport 43 F.

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 cheerleaders. 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 in singing. 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 thanks. 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 best of luck next year to the teams and cheerleaders Thanks again.

In the afternoon a game of soft- ball was played between the Freshman girls and their visitors. Also the Freshmen boys enter- tertained their visitors by playing baseball. The playing of records in the gymnasium furnished dance music for those who wished to dance Later in the afternoon a movie was shown. Following the movie refreshments were served. Everyone had a good time and we are looking forward to next year's Academy Day. Audrey Grass '54 CAMERA CLUB 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 Academy.

"Come quickly" she cried, "My daughter just swallowed a fountain pen!" The doctor re- mained calm. "I will get over as soon as I can," he said, "but there are several in my office now: and you may not see me'for three or four hours." "Three or four hours!" echoed Mrs. Cosgrove "What will I do in the meantime?" "I am afraid you will have to use a pencil," said the doctor. D. Maxim: "Give me a shovel quick, Stephen Fowler is stuck in the mud up to his shoetopsf' D. Marcia: "Why doesn't he Walk out?" D. Maxim: "He's in head first." Two penniless lads graduated from Freedom Academy. The first fVaughn Clarkj made a million dollars. He invented a machine into which you insert a dime and a new wife came out. The other fCarl Perkinsj made five million dollars. In this machine you insert the wife and out came a new dime. An American soldier, billeted in England, didn't like the Way the food was cooked at a local inn. He barely touched the food that was set down before him. The waiter was indignant, "Aren't you asham- ed to be wasting food that way?" he chided. "Don't you know that food will Win the war?" "Could be," allowed the soldier, "but who's going to get the enemy to eat here?" A local Romeo's face appeared in the window of his beloved's bed- room. "Get a move on," he hollered, "let's get this eloping business over with!" "Be quiet," cautioned Juliet, "Papa'll hear us and spoil all our plans." "I wouldn't worry about that," said Romeo, "He's down holding the ladder." Bertha: "Why did you turn out the lights, dear?" Donnie: "I just wanted to see if my pipe was lit." J. Elkins: "Why is a girl like a radio?" E. Howe: "I give up." J. Elkins: "When there isn't much on they become mushy." C. Perkins: "Whisper those little words that will make me Walk on air!" M. Hall: "Go hang yourself." Mr. Jordan cleared his throat in the midst of a Physics examination and remarked gently. "Will some generous student who isn't copying from his textbook be kind enough to let me have the use of it for a few minutes?" Undertaker: "Are you one of the mourners?" R. Drew: "I am, sir: the corpse owed me ten dollars." Mr. Littlefield took his two sons to the county fair. The boys watched the proceedings with great interest and finally one of the boys asked, "Why does that man go around patting and pinch- ing the cows?" Mr. Littlefield: "He is making sure he will get good meat from the creature if he buys." A few days later the boys came running very excited, "Hurry! the letter carrier is buying our cook." A boy has grown up when he'd rather steal a kiss than second base. Mr. Cosgrove: "Roger, can you name me three kinds of ants?" R. Drew: "Yes: Aunts, gi-ants and eleph-ants." Carolyn Cates: "What is usually the first thing to turn green in spring?" Delta Fowler: "An engagement ring." Nelson Sanborn: "Why are people afraid of a doctor's needle?" Kenneth Hall: "Cause if you are- n't careful, he's liable to get you in the end." Mr. Cosgrove: "Can anyone name something that's fireproof?" Paul McFarland: "The boss's son." 66 CLASS OF 1948 NAME OCCUPATION ADDRESS Richard Bailey Working Knox, Maine Jacqueline Balsor Magnon Housewife Bangor, Maine Merland Clark Air Force Texas Waym0H Giggey Marines Florida Mildred Doughty Raven Housewife Knox, Maine Judy Raven At Home Thorndike, Maine John Hall Army New Jersey Irene Penney Mehuren Housewife Morrill, Maine Loretta Holmes Grass Housewife Thorndike, Maine CLASS OF 1949 NAME OCCUPATION ADDRESS Joan Nutt University Orono, Maine of Maine Ruth Fowler Thompson Housewife Knox, Maine Gladys Smith Holmes Housewife Freedom, Maine Virginia Briggs Nurse Portland, Maine Doris Shaw Young Housewife Belfast, Maine Alice Bailey Lester Housewife Burnham, Maine Claris Johnson Penney Housewife Thorndike, Maine Dolly Basford 1 Housewife --- Joseph Bryant Working Knox, Maine Alvin Clark Working Unity, Maine Beatrice Gardiner Bryant Frances Thomas Hubert Clark Leona Larrabee Curtis Clayton Wentworth NAME Barbara Briggs Vivian Hardy Constable Betty Jacques Cecilia Americh Lois Webber Bernard Robert Couturier Richard Ingraham NAME Paul Austin Housewife Knox, Maine Working Oakland, Maine At Home Freedom, Maine Housewife Thorndike, Maine Working Freedom, Maine CLASS OF 1950 OCCUPATION ADDRESS Husson College Bangor, Maine Housewife Unity, Maine Working Bangor, Maine Housewife Connecticut University Orono, Maine of Maine Working Knox, Maine CLASS OF 1951 OCCUPATION ADDRESS Working Bath, Maine 67 Robert Bagley Paul Bradstreet Norma Bridges Lucille Bucklin Ramon Cates Harvey Clark K Donna Crabbe Bagley Kermit Danforth Floyd Fowler Margaret Giggey Blood Harold Greely William Hodgdon Charlene Hustus Richard Mitchell Carl Moody Alice Nickless Brown Royce Penney Anne Pushor Edith Raven Porter Janet Sanborn Virginia Spaulding Allen Yeaton NAME Betty Bowman Gardiner Beatrice Bowman Pearl Gardiner Bertha Downer Alfreda Raven Earl Gardiner Richard Shibles Walter Condon Philip Steele Ernest Austin Allen Knights Working Working Farmington State Teacher's College Working Army Army Housewife Working Army Secretary Working Working Bible School Working Air Force Housewife Air Force Working Housewife W.
