Wle notice that you have taken a great interest in us in many ways, and have lent us help on every hand. For this we thank you in every way which we possibly can,-but now in what way are we dis- appointed? It is in this way. VVhere you have given much you have taken little in return for yourselves. XVhere you have done nobly on your part you have failed to let us have an oppor- tunity of showing our appreciation. iVe will not say in every case for there may be exceptions, but on the whole we have had the opportunity to do very little for you. llowever, this is no time for vain re- grets. This year is gone but there is an- other year coming. In it lies oppor- tunityg look over our olfer again and in the coming year make the most of it and above all do not fail to visit us at any timeg faculty and students will be glad to have you. A SUGGESTION. The coming thing is radio: another coming thing is Fryeburg Academy. VVhy not put two things together? Here is an opportunity for some one to win the everlasting gratitude of the student body. It is also an excellent thing for the stu- dents to work for, a radio set for the school. VVhy not? THE CHIVALRY OF TODAY. A generation or two ago our country. especially in certain sections. had what some call its chivalrous age. Those were the days of sweet romances in quaint old- fashioned gardens: the time when girls were the frail, fair maidens of the cling- ing-vine type, and chivalrous manhood stood waiting to catch the first pale dam- sel who should faint at the sight of a little mouse, or to pick up the diminutive square of perfumed lace when it liuttered from slender white hands. llut was that chivalry, that feeling of pity such as a strong man feels for a help- less little child? The Pilgrim and Pioneer days had far more and truer chivalry when man and woman together laid the foundation of our nation amidst trials and hardships. llut today for the first time in the his- tory of the world is true chivalry being revealed. It is in the age of crime and evil, of iiapperism and jazz, but these things do not predominate. These things shall soon pass away and leave the World at the dawn of a new day, a day in which the ideals now but newborn shall be upheld throughout the landsg when knighthood THE ACADEMY BELL 3 shall indeed be in flower but in a way as yet hardly dreamed of. for chivalry shall be founded on equality. Already young manhood and woman- hood, standng practically on the sam: level, are shaking hands in preparation for entering their tasks together in this needy old world. Civilizations on another basis have long teen tried and have fallen as Rome in all her glory fell. The thing which can save the civilization of today is the united working of man and woman. The world is waking up to this vital need and the chivalry of today is the gradual accep- tance of womanhood into her rightful place as fellow-worker and helper of man in the business, political, social, and religious fields. Doius FiaRN.x1.o, Qi. LIFE. Life is the greatest gift God can be- stow. Our destiny, which He alone knows. is planned by Ilis wisdom and carried out under His perfect guidance. How do footsteps patter when by con- fidence they may be stayed by that ever willing and helpful hand? We say life is a burden. This is not so unless we make it so and this surely was not God's intention. VVhy should we make it this xx hen He has made it possible for life to be such a wonderful revelation from be- ginning to end? For even in our darkest hours and deepest grief we can always feel confident that by trusting that Divine power we shall be shown the silver lining which is always just beneath the blackest cloud. HOW OUR SCHOOL ACTIVITIES PREPARE US FOR THE FUTURE. There is no better way to prepare us for the future than by our school activi- ties. We are as a people famous for good sportsmanship, and as a school we should keep these ideals. Often in ath- letic meets there is a chance to Hget by with" unfair playing. This is not the idea we have of sportsmanship, for we take the penalty and profit by our errors. Not only in athletics but by debating we are prepared for the future. This was successfully introduced in the acad- emy this year. It enables us to think quickly and be alert. LEONA MCINTLRE. WKQ WAP 4 THE ACADEMY BELL iflitnrarg SALUTATORY. ln the early days of our country, much of ceremony and form entered into even the everyday things of life. Today in oriental lands great pomp and show is considered a necessity to properly meet- ing or parting from friends. Tt has al- ways been the custom to cling to oriental or ancient customs in occasions like this, though in other things the spirit of the times is straight forward simplicity. Today the pleasant duty is mine of greeting you here assembled, and T wish to do it in a simple twentieth century American way. Honorable trustees, teach- ers, parents, undergraduates, friends: we appreciate the interest which you have long shown in us, we appreciate your presence here this afternoon, and in be- half of my class T most heartily welcome you to our graduation exercises. THE IMPORTANCE OF CHEMIS- TRY TO MAN. Q In the beginning of n1an's life upon earth he was little different in any dis- cernible way from the animals among which he lived. lie became vitally dif- ferentiated from these, his early com- panions, principally because he began dimly to grasp certain scientific facts. Through untold centuries his progress was infinitely slow, because that progress a knowledge and science was ever dependent upon and application of science, never has revealed her secrets satisfac- torily save to keen, deep minds-minds capable of great concentration and pa- tience. The worldls debt to scientihc research is best understood when we remember that the aboriginal man, clothed in the skin of an animal tstruck down by a clubj, living in a dark damp cave eating as do wild animals, the uncombined, un- prepared products of mother earth might have been enjoying all of the advantages of twentieth century civilization if he had been possessed of the scientific knowl- edge which belongs to this century. Cf the many branches of science wh'ch through the ages man has studied and applied, all others combined have not yielded such practical fruits for his com- fort and happiness as has chemistry. it is a thought as fascinating as it is fearful, as interesting as it is awe inspiring, that all material which the wizzard-like chemist of today is so marvelously using, has lain ready and waiting since the be- ginning of manis earth life, and he knew it not through the passing of countless ages. Thirty centuries have passed since the chemically prepared mummy of King Tut-ankh-amen was tucked away in its chamber of splendors, and for thousands of years before this men had been apply- ing chemical facts. A history of this and of later research holds for the think- ing person a fascination unequalled by the most thrilling tale of fiction, but we pass it by untouched because we wish to deal with modern chemistry. Between early and modern chemistry there is no positive line of demarcation. Routledge speaks of the discovery of gases as marking the beginning of modern chemistry, and Henry Smith Wfillianis. in his great five-volume history of science, THE ACADEMY BELL 5 says of the discovery of atoms two hun- dred years later, "Upon this wonderful theory tof atomsJ the Whole gigantic structure of modern chemistry is found- ed." Xlfe are inclined to agree with the laier writer. for chemistry without a r..cogt'ition of atoms certainly not quit: modern. Chemistry is the fundamental science of the tfanslormation of matter. or we may say it is the sc'ence of analysis and syrthesls, that is. the taking apart and putt ng together of compounds and ele- n1e.1ts. For instance, take water. Anal- ys's is separating it into its elements. hydrt.-gen and oxygen. Synthesis is com- b.n'rg ogzygeii and hydrogen to form water. 'lite last hfty years chemistry lias lst-gn prfiicpaly synthesis or combining oi compcunds and elements to make new cc mpounds. many of which are not found in nature. linen season we see things changing from dead to living and from llving to dead. 'l'11.s is one manifestation of the cyce of substances in nature. All ele- nients and cotnpounds are consiantly uiiilergofng changes because the atoms are con:-tz111t'y rearringing theinselyes. Thus, the tr es and shrubs of one gen :ra- tion may ne it turn into soft call. and tl'at into hard crxali the hard coal into giaphtei and hnally. under proper candi- tors, rgrapltlte fnto diamonds. llut there w u'd be less graphlte thin coal, beiausc much gfeater pressure is neided for t'rs c' a gg to talze ylace. Only a very small part of the graphite would turn to d'a- munds Iiecause this crystallization occurs only under tremendous pressure, more tfan lIi'ClilfIZl'lly exists on the earth. No matter is lost or gained in the world. For illustration, when wood is burned. it may seem that matter is de- stroyed. l?ut if one could collect all of the liberated gases and moisture and weigh them together with the ashes he would have the exact weight of the origi- nal wood. Chemistry makes for order and com- fort. The natural arrangement of things on the earth is chaos. All sub- sttnces have been mixed in the earth for us to sort out and fmd a use for. This is what chemistry does. Its natural or- der is cosmos. For an ihustration take metals. We do not find great sheets of iron or great lumps of gold free in the eargh. 'lhese metals are in tiny pieces. or chemfcally combined in their ores uith other ClSIHfHfS. Chemistry has de- vised means to get metals from their ores and purify them for our use. Most of the organic compounds have lzeen analyzed. llut as yet no way has lzeen found to combine the elements fornrng them. Sugar. starch, fruits. celulofe, and many other compounds omntafn nothing but carbon. hydrogen and oxygen-elements found abun- dantly in nature. The only difference be- tween them is a differerce in arrange- ment of their atoms, but as yet the science of properly arranging these ele- ments to produce a required compound has evaded the chemfst. Fortunate is the man vxho discovers the art of com- bining them. All he will need to do is to have a well equipped factory, plenty of carbon and water. Then by the proper combining of these he will be ready to meet the demanxfslof the world 6 THE ACADEMY BELL for starch, sugar, oil, and all other or- ganic compounds. Nature's supply of many of our com- pounds will soon become exhausted. For instance, this will be true of our coal, oil and illuminating gas. We will soon need chemists who can provide some substitute for these compounds. Chemists are more and more turning their attention to the use of by-products or waste products, and some of these by-products are even more useful than the main products. Only a short time ago, the coal which had been heated to furnish the illuminating gas used in cit- ies, was thrown away. Now we get nearly all of our ammonia from this coal. Hut the most important by-prod- uct of heating coal is coal tar. Coal tar is the scrap-heap of the vegetable king- dom. In it is found a little of every- thing that is in trees. It contains about a dozen primary compounds which can be made into hundreds of thousands of other substances. It heals and wounds. It furnishes medicines and munitions. From it is made perfume which sur- passes that of the rose. It is like the magic purse of Fortunatus, from which anything can be drawn. Its most im- portant use is in manufacturing of dyes. This was practically started in t'1e United States after our supply was cut off from Germany during the war. Gur dye in- dustry has been a great success. Now the value of our export of dyes is as great as was the value of the import of dyes before the war. The chemists of this country could have earlier found a way to make dyes if they had tried. This is just an example of what chemists can do when necessity demands. Nitrogen plays a very important part in making high explosives. The first im- plement of fighting was cellulose, chietiy in the form of clubs. Then came silica, mostly in the form of flint arrowheads and spear-points. Now has come the nitrogenous era, the using of nitrogen compounds to make gunpowder and ex- plosives: Nitrogen is generally consid- ered as an inert substance, so it might seem strange that it is of so great use in making explosives, but this is the very reason it is useful. It is very reluctant to unite with other substances, but on the other hand, very active in getting out of certain of its compounds. So when these nitrogen atoms are disturbed in any way, they, obeying their natural or- der, force themselves out of their com- pounds with such violence that an ex- plosion occurs. Gun cotton, T. N. T. and all our explosives contain nitrogen. The only objection in regard to the nitro- gen is that it must be in a compound. Free nitrogen is of no worth. It is as free as air, but reminds one of the quo- tation from the Ancient Mariner: "VVa- ter, water everywhere but not a drop to drink.' At the opening of the world war, Germany was using Chile saltpeter almost entirely in making explosives. Later this supply was cut off and Ger- many would at once have been forced to her knees but for her chemists who found a way to take nitrogen from the air and put it into compounds. This is another example of the skill and power of chemists. Pamphlets endorsed by world prominent people are now being distributed to womens' clubs and other organizations with the avowed purpose THE ACADEMY BELL 7 to "assess anew the value of the intimate and unending service of chemistry to home, community and country: to weigh afresh the obligation resting upon us all to bring our country abreast of the world's foremost nations in this branch of knowledge which literally underlies our physical and our economic life." This shows the great importance which our leaders are placing upon chemistry today. Yet beyond question, even with its wonderful recent development. chemi- cal research is but in its infancy. VVhat the future holds for it no man can say, but all agree that generations to come will look back upon this age in chemistry much as we look back upon ages now long past. :Ks we wonder why a knowledge of gases and the the- ory of atoms so long evaded early chem- ists, so people of the future will marvel that our men of science failed to under- stand many truths of chemistry which will then be universally known. VASHTI CLEMENT CLASS HISTORY. As historian of the class of 1923. it is my duty to cast to the four winds the record of our labors and activities. Four years ago, on September 23. 15139, Fryeburg Academy opened its doors. groared. and sighed. for more desks must be purchased in order to ac- eonimodate forty-five small and Very green Freshmen. For the first few days we had great confidence in our power to maintain our rights. VVe pushed the Sophomores around at will and went on our blissful way undisturbed. Perhaps this conti- dence was inspired by the fact that we were the largest class that had entered the Academy for some years. VVhat- ever the cause, these unnatural condi- tions did not long prevail. At a social tendered us by the juniors, we were shown our place, and what is more, we kept it for the rest of the year. This did not hinder us. however, from receiving a fair share of the prizes offered by the school. 'lhree of our boys won their letters in baseball. One of our boys won the second Latin prizeg anolher won the general improvement prize: and a third won second honor in l'rize Speaking. 'l'here came the fall of 1920. IVe re- turned to our studies with a feeling of more or less importance. We were Sophomores, and as such looked for- ward to teaching the Freshmen the ways of lfryeburg Academy. NVe missed several from our ranks, but their places were filled by new mem- bers. As I looked one over from feet to head, I saw two feet that undoubt- edly belonged to a woman. Letting my glance rove upward, I noticed a set of trouser legs. Surprised, yes, even star- tled. I looked into a face that belonged to a man. Upon inquiring as to whom th's gentleman possessing woman's feet might be, I learned that his name was Percy liurnell of XVest llaldwin. VVendell Ridlon. another new member, seemed to lack the ability of handling himself properly, and so quickly gained the nickname of "Weary." Floyd Warren was conspicuous be- 8 THE ACADEMY BELL cause of his white hair and gold tooth. Rachel Heath, Clifford Kimball, and Alice llallard joined our ranks and again we numbered forty-five. As the year progressed we found more time to take part in the Various activi- ent. My attention was soon called to one of our new members. He was a pale, thin, sickly looking fellow. Today as we look at Charles l-larmon we cannot help but marvel at the change two years of life at Fryeburg Academy has brought about. In place of a wan and beardless face, we ind a countenance with the amplitude of a full moon and with the whiskers of a buecaneer. VVe also welcomed Forrest and VVal- lace lllake, and Marguerite Marston of llrownheld. After a year's absence Charles Davidson returned to F. A., Marion Stokes and Lucille Locke regis- tered, but left soon after they had joined us. ties. The varsity basket ball team took two of our men, one of whom was the captain, and two others won their let- ters in track. Vlfhen the spring term ended seven boys had earned their let- ters in baseball. .Athletics was not the only thing in which we gloried, however. The gen- eral improvement prize was earned by Percy llurnellg Lillian Swan won the medal for excellency in Englishg Percy Burnell and Marion Charles won prizes in the annual speaking contestg Lillian Swan and Vashti Clement won the Latin prizes. When we returned as juniors in the fall of 1921, we counted and recounted the class roll and found only forty pres- Few were the functions of school life that did not find some of the Juniors in- volved. The improvement prize for girls was won by Doris lfernaldg the English medal was won by Vashti Clement, the first prize in Latin was won by Mary Eastmang and the first prize in the annual speaking contest was won by Raymond Cotton. Two Juniors served as literary editors on the ACAD- EMY BELL, while a third held the position of assistant business manager. Five Juniors, including the captain and man- ager, won letters in basket ball, and eight juniors earned letters in baseball. At the end of this year we heard of Mr. VVelch,s resignation with misgivings, for he had guided us through three years of our school life. At the beginning of our Senior year Mr. Elroy O. LaCasce took the position as Headmaster. Mr. LaCasce has proved himself wholly in sympathy with the scholars, and has thereby gained the co- operation of the entire school. Early last fall a debating society was organized by the Senior class. Percy llurnell was chosen President, Robert Eastman, Vice-President and Mary Eastman, Secretary. Un March 22 we presented a drama entitled "His Unclels Niece." The parts were well taken, and from this drama and the dance which followed the class realized one hundred and sixty-one dol- lars. Un March 29, 1923, we were sad- dened by the death of Mrs. Alberta Mabry Abbott who had been the faithful and efficient head of the Music Depart- ment for the past quarter of a century. THE ACADEMY BELL 9 Our endeavors in the literary world have been shown this year by several articles in the AcA111eMv BE1.1.,the Edi- tor-in-chief and the Associate Editors on Alumni, Literature, Exchanges, Ath- lct cs, and the Art Department, were Seniors, as well as the Business Man- ager and one of his assistants. Today marks the end of the history of the class of 19223. Today we leave the dear old Academy.

Among the dates in history which are important to every American citizen are: October 12, 1l92g the year 16203 July 4, l77tig September 3, 17833 the year 1i'SSg December 2, 18233 April 12, 1861, April 14, 1865, and April ti, 1917. l do not pretend to say these dates are the greatest ones in American History: lgut 1 do say that they are among the greatest. The hrst date, Octolger 12, 1-192, brings to every mind the discovery of America. Christopher Columbus, an ltalian by birth, after many disappoint- ments received the help of the Queen of Spain to equip a small Heet of three ships. On August 3, 1492, Columbus set sail from Spain and headed due west. He hoped to find the West Indies. Co- lumbus had two motives in sailing: First he wished to convert the people of the Indies to Christianity, and second, he hoped to establish a shorter trade route to these islands, Finally, 011 October I2, 1492, after many hardships, land was sighted, and Columbus landed on the Island of Guanahani. Thus was America discovered. My second date deals with the land- ing of the Pilgrims. In the year I62O a company of Englishmen had resolved to emigrate to America. The chief rea- son for going was that they might enjoy both political and religious liberty, ac- cording to their own standards of what was just alld right. They had pla1111ed to settle 11ear tl1e Hudson River, but upon reaching this coast they found themselves near what is now Cape Cod, and decided to settle there. lVhfle their ship. the Mayflower, re- mained at anchor. Captain Standish with a btzatload of men went out to explore. On December 21st they came to Ply- mtruth fiay and landed near a boulder which has since been called Plyniouth Rock. The Pilgrims declared them- selves loyal subjects of the King, but at the same time they made their own laws and elected John Carver as their first Governor. Thus the 11ew common- wealth began. They were but a few score people, but they had the strength that belongs to those who fear God and respect themselves. The next date is Indepenence Day, IO THE ACADEMY BELL July -1, 17713. England had endeavored to tax the Colonists against their will, and as a result the Colonists rebelled. The Americans did not seek separation, but the King of England forced it on them and there was no choice left. In june, 1776, Richard Henty Lee of Vir- ginia offered this resolution in Congress: "Resolved, that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent states." A committee of live, Thomas Jeffer- son, john Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Robert R. Living- ston, was chosen to draw up a declara- tion enbodying ythat resolution. Thomas jefferson did the work. On July 4, 17713, John Hancock, President of Congress. signed the Declaration of American In- dependence in that bold, decided hand which the King of England could read without spectacles. Later, the represent- atives of the colonies added their names to the Declaration. That completed the work. The thirteen British Colonies had ceased to exist. In their place stood a new nation. the United States of Amer- ica, and it has been a free and independ- ent nation ever since. September 3, 1783, marks the signing of the Treaty of Peace with England. ln a speech to Parliament in 1782, the King of England said that he was ready to acknowledge the independence of the United States, and that it was his ear- nest prayer that religion, language, in- terest, and affection might prove a bond of permanent union between the two countries. The treaty secured for us the thirteen states and the territory west of them to the Mississippi, in all, an area of about eight hundred thousand square miles. VVe were then free and independent, but we were not united. Congress had no power to enforce the laws that it made. At last, in 1787, a convention of fifty-five members was held in Philadel- phia to draw up a new Constitution. W'ashington presided at this convention, which consisted of the chief men from all the states. After a stormy session of nearly four months the great work was completed, and the Constitution was adopted. During the next year, 1788, all of the states decided to adopt it, and from that time on we were united as well as free and independent. About a hundred years ago Mexico and several South American countries had declared themselves republics, inde- pendent of Spain. President Monroe suspected that the European kings were going to help Spain regain control of these countries. In his message to Con- gress on December 2, 1823, the Presi- dent declared, that while the United States was resolved not to meddle with the affairs of the nations of the Old VVorld, we were equally determined that they should not meddle with the affairs of the New. That declaration is called the Monroe Doctrine. It means that we consider that America is for Americans, and any attempt on the part of Europe to extend her system to any portion of this hemisphere would be regarded as the manifestation of an unfriendly dis- position toward the United States. April 12, 1861, marks the beginning of the Civil War, that great struggle be- tween the North and South. Durinff b the four long years that the war lasted, THE ACADEMY BELL ll thcusands of brave men were killed and miilmns of dollars' damage done to the country. Even when we think of the great cost of the war, both in lives anf' money, we cannot help but think of the results. Wlhfn the Civil lVar ended, we ha'l changed from a slave-holding coun- try to a nation in which every man was equal. The quarrel between the North and SouLh xi as over. and, instead of two pe'ty nations always fighting each other. we were still one great republic. On the evening of April ll, 18155, a wave of sorrow swept over the coun- try: for ton that evening while President Lincoln was attend'ng a theatre in Wlash- irglon, a miserable, half crazy actor named Vtlillzes Booth, stepped into the lox and shot the President in the back of the head. The next morning, surrounded by his family and offical friends, Abraham Lincoln died. lliords have no power to tell the worth of Abraham Lincoln. llis name, linked with the immortal W'ashington's, is forever enshrined in the hearts of the American people, for he was the savior of our country as Wash- ington was its founder and father. liarly in the morning of April ti, 1917. a resolution declaring a state of war be- tween the United States and Germany, was passed by Congress. For the first time in over a century we were at war with one of the great foreign powers. As ljresident Wilson said, "The great fact that stands outabove all the rest is that this is a peoples, war, a war for freedom and justice, a war to make the world safe for the people who live in it and who have made it their own.', Our presence in the war brought victory for the Allies and Germany was crushed. Thus far I have mentioned dates which are important to every American citizen. My tenth date is important to a certain few who are gathered in this church this afternoon. To us, this day, June 12, 1923, is of vast importance, for it marks the ending of one of the happiest peri- ods of our lives-our four years at Frye- burg Academy. . PERCY BURNELL. THE LAST JOURNEY.

"The End of the Trail" seems to me a big subject when I begin to realize that there are all kinds of trails, but the more l think of it, the more I believe that none of these trails really end. Let us conslder a few of them and see if this is not true. Life is the big trail. the broad highway along which we travel from childhood. The entrances to many smaller trails dot the sides of it and are visible to us as we pass by. lVe have the liberty of ex- ploring any of these, of choosing any one that we like. But we find to our surprise that each one evidently lea back to the main trail with its obstacles to be overcome and its pleasant places to be enjoyed. So we journey until we reach the end of the trail, across which a veil is drawn. There is no escape from the trail at this point. XVe must pierce the veil, beyond which lies Eter- nity. Some of us will do it with fear and trembling. others with confidence. But there is no need of fear, for the end of life is but the beginning of a bigger, broader trail where we shall start anew. All stages of life are the same. Take childhood, for instance. This is a short but beautiful trail. Tall trees border the sides of it: velvety green grass grows beside itg a delicious perfume floats through the balmy air. issuing from the iranv Howers of delicate shades and tints which are sprinkled through the grass on either side: beautiful birds with bright pfumage trill and warble as they flit from branch to branch: above, not a cloud mars the serenity of the blue heavens. Everything is calm, peaceful and lovely. Below, there are no jagged stones in the path for the little feet to stumble against as they toddle along, neither are there any sharp turns around which lurk unknown dangers. True, an occasional storm-cloud looms up on the horizon, but it is not often a very large one nor does it stay very long. The journey down this trail is over all too quickly and the end is soon reached. But wait! Is it the end? No. Upon THE ACADEMY BELL 13 looking again we find that there is no end to childhood, only the beginning of youth. Thus it goes down through the ages. Next in consideration is a mountain trail. The beginning is just like walk- irg on level ground. for the slope begins very gradually. ln fact. it is so simple tliat you th'nk, "My, this is easy! I'll soon be at the topfl llut that is a great mistake. For at first slowly, but finally very quickly, the trail begins to get steeper and rougher. Sharp rocks are strewn over the path and the roots of trees jut out into it at unexpected places to trip you disastrously. The trail be- comes still steeper. You stop to rest frequently, saying to yourself, "This is1i't going to be as simple as I thought, but l guess I'll soon be theref' Perse- verance and the determination to reach the top prove to be good incentives for climbing. At last you arrive at the high- est peak. "XVhat!" you exclaim, star- ing ahead, there no end to this trail?" However, after the first glance around, you become oblivious of all else but the glorious panorama spread before your eyes. Azure skies, huge, blue moun- tans with their peaks and ravines, and far away a glimpse of the valley with its farms and villages. Certainly it is a sight well worth the long, hard climb. Before you start back, take another look at the trail. Isn't there really any end to it? Vtlhy, so there isn't! 'It just continues and merges into the trail that leads downward on the other side. Now, I come to the best trail of all- the trail that we as a class have traveled for four years. lt has been a long trail, but we have passed quickly over it. Let us make a short resume of it. We were rather timid as we started because the path was strange and we did not know what new dangers might be awaiting us around the next turn. or what pitfalls might be underneath our feet. But nothing direful happened to us, and as we passed along the way we walked faster in proportion as our confidence increaseld. Obstacles were constantly being thrown in our way, but by dint of hard work we overcame them. XVe became stronger and braver with every step we took. The difhcult places were always broken up by easy pleasant ones before they became irksome. The temp- tations were many, but we passed them by without yielding, As seniors we have continued our triumphant march, sweeping all before us till we have reached this final victory-what seems the end of the trail. llut even as there was no end to the other trails which I have mentioned, so there is no end to this one. Rightly were these exercises named Commencement, for that is what they are, the commencement of new things, the dawn of a new life. Honorable Trustees, it is to you that we owe the privilege of attending Frye- burg Academy-a privilege that we have enjoyed for four years. Before we leave we wish to thank you for the op- portunities you have offered us, for the interest you have manifested in us. Speak- ing for my class, I thank you and bid you farewell. Teachers of Fryeburg Academy, you have labored long and diligently with us, trying to infuse a little knowledge I4 THE ACADEMY BELL into our heads. You have been very patient and helpful. XVe have always felt free to come to you :for help, know- ing that it would be given gladly. You have watched over us and tried to make the way as smooth as possible. Now we are going out from under your care and we want to tell you how much we appreciate the help and inspi- ration you have given us. Undergraduates. we, the Class of 153253, are leaving Ifryeburg Academy forever, and we bequeath our places to you. You will step into them and fill them capably. we feel sure. VVe are handing you the torch and you must carry on in our stead. Above all, be sincere in everything you do, persevere in your work, and you will have no regrets when you leave. And now, my classmates, I turn to you. Today is our day of days, our greatest day, for it is in all probability t"e last time that we shall all be together. VVe must make the most of it because before we rialize it will have slipped from us and we shall be waiching the sun rise on tomorrow with its glorious p1'om'se. Tonight will see us scattered to the four winds of fate, and if per- chance any of us meet again it will be under different circumstances. Even after these exercises are over the part- ing will begin, and so we must grasp each golden moment as it flies by and p'ace it in our treasure-chest of memo- ries. Dear classmates, shall we ever forget the days we have spent together in old lf. A.? No, as long as memory lasts, even though we never see each other again. each of us will always think ten- derly of the good old times at F. A. Although it grieves me. the time has come when I must say farewell, Gladly I would talk on and on and keep back the dread moment, but it is inevitable. It must come! And so farewell to you, my classmates and comrades! As we go forth into our new life, each in a dif- ferent direction, each to a different vo- cation, let us make a solemn vow never to forget the class of N123 of Ifryeburg Academy, what it has been in the past, what it is in the present, and what it will be in the future. LILLIAN SWAN. OUR FRIENDS, THE BIRDS. All forms of nature are interesting but none appeal to me more strongly than b'rds. They are useful, teach many lessons and add greatly to the joy and beauty of the world. VVho does not feel a thrill of pleasure when he awakes some morning after a long dreary winter and hears the bluebird singing in the tree tops? Qr what could furnish greater entertainment than to watch the Purple Finch wooing his mate? I have seen this gaily dressed suitor with wings spread, crest lifted, cir- cle round and round his lady-love, sing- ing his sweet song resembling that of a canary, as he waltzed and bowed, try- ing to win the admiration of his plainly- dressed and rather indifferent compan- ion. How dull would be the woods and fields were it not for the bright colors and joyous songs of the cheerful little birds! Longfellow said, THE ACADEMY BELL 15 "Do you ne'er think what wondrous beings these? Do you ne'er think who made them and who tauglt The dialect they speak, where melodies Alone are the interpreters of thought?'l Scientists have studied and classified thirteen hundred species of birds. They are found all over the world and are of a great many forms and colors. Compare a humming bird with an ostrich, a swal- low with a penguin, and the wide varia- tions in structure and habits is brought forcibly to the mind. Strange as it may seem, it has been found that the widely divergent types descended from a com- mon reptilian ancestor. There is much evidence to prove this, but the most con- clusive is furnished by the discovery. in llavaria, of several specimens of remark- ab'e fossils-a reptile-like bird having teeth. Thus the different kinds of birds, like the different races of men. have been molded by climate and conditions of life into the various types. The habit of a bird determines largely the form of its feet. bill, wings and tail. The swimming birds have developed webs beiween the tees: the bill of the hum- ming-bird enables it to reach its food through tulies of deepest flowers. The woodcock, who thrusts its bill into the mud for earthworms, has acquired the power of moving the upper manible indelqendently of the lower one, thus us- ing it as a finger to draw out its food. lts eyes after generations of looking backward for enemies while its head is down have come to be placed far back on the head. The greatest number of birds depend chiefly upon the protective coloring of their plumage for defense, and the more closely they harmonize with their sur- roundings the more likely are they to escape the watchful eyes of their foes. The female requires the better protection, for in the great majority of cases she builds the nest, covers the eggs and cares for the young. The mother oriole needs to reflect in her feathers the olive green, soft grayish brown, and yellow of the leaves. twigs and sunlight among which she lives. After the family cares are over, the bobolink changes his black, white and buff suit to a winter one of streaked brown like his mate, because they will go south and live among the brown grasses and sedges. The bittern looks more like a stump than a bird as he stands motion- less in his marshy home with his neck stretched upward. Arctic birds turn white in winter so they will match the snow. Our birds are divided into about thirty- six families. Some of these families are large, while in some we have only one representative-as in the case of the hum- ming-bfrd. There are five hundred species known, but only one, the ruby-throat, comes to us. I do not know how many species of birds we have, but at my home I have identified one hundred eleven. XVe know how much beauty and music birds add to their surroundlngs, but do we realize the real usefulness of them? Longfellow must have or he never would have written the "Birds of Killingworthf, Entomologists have estimated that in- sects yearly cause a loss of upwards of S7tJU,tJolb,lJ0tJ to the agricultural interests of the United States. XVere it not for 16 THE ACADEMY BELL our birds the loss would be much greater. Our class, like the swallows, rids the air of small gauzy-winged pests, such as mosquitoes, gnats and midges. Phoebes and other flycatchers sit on posts and dead branches, ready to launch off into the air the instant an insect comes into sight. This class of birds keep down the larger flying insects. The small warblers and creepers help to free the foliage from insects, while the woodpeckers and nuthatches hunt for eggs of insects and beetles on the tree trunks. The feathered army that takes care of the ground is composed of crows, robins, meadow-larks and sparrows. The last is one of the most useful groups. Unobtrusive as they are, they lay the farmer under a helvy debt of gratitude, since their chosen fare consists largely of the seeds of weeds. It was est matcd in 1910 that the sparrow family saved to our farmers over eighty-nine million dollars. Hawks and crows do more good than harm. "You call them thieves and pillagersg but know 'lhcy are the wiiiged wardens of your farms, ' Who from the cornfields drive the insidious foe, And from your liarvests keep a hundred harms, Even the blackest of them all, the crow, Renders good service as your man-at-arms, Crushirg tlee beetle in his coat of mail, And working havoc on the slug and snail." If we were deprived of the service of birds, the earth would soon become un- inhabitable. Perhaps one of the most wonderful things in bird life is their annual migra- tion. lt isnlt strange that birds leave the North when winter comes, but the marvel is that they should leave the abundant food and sunshine of the South and wing their way thousands of miles to build their nests and spend the short summer here, coming not only to the same town but often to their last year's nesting place. The Arctic tern is said to be the great- est of all travelers: it breeds as far north as it can nnd land and winters as far south as it can find open water from which to take its food. So it makes a round trip of twenty-two fthousand miles a year. Imagine the tiny ruby-throated humming-bird, whose outstretched wings barely measure two inches, journeying from New England to Central America. lt is surprising to learn that no one knows the winter quarters of the chimney swift as they are able wholly to vanish from the knowledge of man for five months of the year. As soon as the young are old enough to hunt a little for themselves, the families slowly move southg others join them until, on the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico, they become an innumerable host, then they disappear. In the last week of March there comes again out of the sky a great twittering, and the swifts have re- turned, from whence nobody knows. Vastly amazing is the flight of the golden plover, who leaves the coast of Nova Scotia, striking straight across the ocean for South America, twenty-four hundred miles away. Those on the Pa- cihc coast go across an islandless sea from Alaska to Hawaii. Who knows by what compass they steer for that speck in the greatest of oceans? 36 THE ACADEMY BELL team of Fryeburg played the final half.

Her memory will long be cherished by the alumni. the faculty, and students of Fryrburg Academy, as well as by a host of friends wherever she was known. Mrs. Abbott was a faithful member of the First Congregational Church and served as organist there for many years.

Ting F1u5Nc11 PLAY "Les IJUIIJ' Sourdsv A big event of the term was the pres- entation of a one act comedy in French, given by members of the French classes, May 15, 19225. The play owes its suc- cess to the splendid coaching of Miss VVray, who opened the evenings enter- tainment with two French songs. The French was spoken very fluently through- out. Another interesting feature of the evening was popular songs sung in French by the cast which was as follows: Damoiseau, pere d'Eglantine Wright Cousins Placide, auroreu d'Eglantine Mariner Craig Boniface, domestique Edward Leadbctter Eglantine, fille unique de Damoiseau Lillian Swan "His LTNCLE,S Ntucnu Such was the title of this year's Senior Drama. Francis Felton, a young man of tricky tendencies, was the Niece, by virtue of the fact that Uncle had for years labored under the delusion that Francis was a winsome girl. Francis and his young lawyer chum, Richard Tate, Esq., are living in a bliss- ful bachelor-hood at the time when Cncle decides to call upon his Niece, to exhibit Filander, his choice of a husband for her. It means an actual million dollars for Francis to cater to Uncle's whims, so when the former learns, on short notice, of the impending visit, he Dick Tate saves the million, temporarily, is desperate. with a license whereby Francis disguises as a girl, so that Uncle may really find a Niece upon his arrival. Dora and Alice, special friends of Francis and Dick, arrive on the scene at odd moments, very odd moments in fact, and are pressed into service in carrying out the brilliant hoax. The tangled web that Francis weaves by his attempt to deceive, is finally shat- tered when Filander, clad in a barrel, breaks in upon the faked wedding, which was to have gained Francis the million. The class of '23 can be proud of its dramatic production. Success came as the result of hard work, especially on the part of the coach, Miss Farris. The dance which followed the play, was well attended. The music for the entire oc- casion was furnished by the Academy Orchestra, specially drilled by Mrs. Ab- bott for this occasion.

The entire second THE ACADEMY BELL 17 It surely must be as Bryant says, that "There is a Power whose care Teaches their way along that pathless coast, The desert and illimltable air, Lone wandering but not lost." In many ways birds have human char- acteristics. What greater courage could be dsplayed by a soldier than that shown by the rulied grouse. who, when her chicks are threatened with danger. pre- tend that she is lame or has a broken wing and fluttering near tries to lead the in- truder away, while her chicks stand mo- tionless and unseen. This not only shows courage but mother love. The female oriole displays great skill as an architect. Vtlith exquisite work- manship she weaves a pouch-like nest that rain cannot penetrate nor wind shake from its horsehair moorings. It would be wiser if people, instead of grumbling about the weather, would pat- tern after the robin who sings when it rains, or the verioes and grosbeaks who sing through the intense heat of summer, If students would be as persevering as the bluqbird who built in the pump in our held. they would certainly accomplish a great deal. She built a nest and the hay- makers, feeling it necessary to get water, destroyed it. Again and again she built, only to have her house demolished. After she had made a fourth nest the men thought the plucky little bird cle- served to have her home remain un- touched. Vtiise indeed is he who cultivates the friendship of birds. They will cheer him when he is sick, entertain when he is lonely, teach him many lessons of vital importance and never betray his friend- ship. He will be brought into close touch with nature and learn more and more of the wondrous goodness of God, without whose notice not even a sparrow falls to the ground. IDA CHARLES. WINGS OF WAITING.
