only a one-sheet weekly, which delivers
to its suhscrihers the important hap-

which hinds the school into one solid

8 THE ACADEMY BELL
'l'he day is here to which our class of
ISVH has been looking forward for four
years, I1 is gt day of happiness to us
and we are indeed glad to have you
present to share that happiness with
us. Trustees, teachers, parents.
friends, and undergraduates. we ex-
tend to you most cordial greetings at
these our commencement exercises.
Your help has made possible the four
happy years and so, without your pres-
ence. this occasion would not be com-
plete. XYith our grateful appreciation
of that fact, accept, today, our heart-
Many years ago one of America's
poets wrote the story of a youth who
lost his life in the search for an ideal.
ln the poem. "l2xcelsior," Longfellow
pictured the journey of a young man
towards the realization of a vision. As
he went on his way towards the moun-
tain top, great temptations and dis-
couragements were thrown in his path,
but he foiled on that he might realize
his ambition. In the story he was un-
successful and died before he attained
his goal, but the spirit that inspired
him lives on.
Our great explorers and adventurers
have been touched with the same ambi-
tion as l.ongfellow's hero, who sped
on. crying. "lCxcelsior." They, too,
have disregarded personal safety and
financial success and have thought only
of the goal set before them.
Columbus set a goal before him and
determined to reach it. Only through
great difficulties was he able to dis-
cover the New XYorld. llad he not
been greatly determined he would have
turned back in answer to the sailors'
warnings and pleadings and we. who
are now free .Xinericans, might be hud-
dled in liurope or Asia.
Other early explorers or discoverers
might he mentioned who suffered
many privations because of the goals
they set before themselves. but they
felt satisfied. knowing that they were
helping to advance the knowledge
which would benefit the world.
Among those who charted the north-
ern seas and lands is one whose sum-
mer home is not far from Iiryeburg.
General Adolphus Greely. General
Ureely, in the employ of the l'nited
States government, had for his object
the establishing of a series of posts for
the furthering of Arctic exploration. As
he was performing this duty his boat
was sunk and many of his food sup-
plies lost. Cold and hunger began to
take toll of the little party. and. one
by one, many of them died. A relief
expedition was sent in search. since
nothing had been heard from them for
some time. XVhen, by a lucky chance
they were discovered. neither he nor
any of his men were recognizable. A
member of the rescuing party leaned
over him saying, Ulireely. is this
you?" "Yes," said Greely, in a faint
and broken voice, hesitating and shuf-
fling with his words, "Yes-seven of us
left-here we are-dying-like men.
Did what I came to do--beat the best

record." The motto of this intrepid
explorer was "Excelsior," and he was.
fortunately, more successful than the
hero of l,ongfellow's poem.
Another Arctic explorer, who had
for his motto "Excelsior," and who is of
particular interest to Fryeburg people,
in that he once lived here, is Com-
mander Robert E. Peary, the discov-
erer of the North Pole. After eighteen
years of almost continual work in
that region he realized his ambition,
and in doing so, gave the United States
the honor of being the hrst to reach
that long sought-for goal. His health
was undoubtedly undermined by his
many Arctic trips and he died in mid-
dle life. but he must be regarded as

appointment kcpt them from their
goal. and though Scott met with the

yet he succeeded in attaining his
A graduate of the .Xcadetuy in the
class of 1884 made a record as an
explorer, which is well worth our
attention. Dennis N. Cole and a com-
panion, making surveys and explora-
tions iu Labrador, discovered the Great
Falls. They met with many mishaps
and nearly lost their lives, but all
through Mr. Cole's life it was a great
satisfaction to him that he attained his

should not fail to mention Donald li.

heard speak in this church. Ile is
now making important explorations
in the Arctic regions. "Excelsior" has
always been his motto.
A band of daring mountaineers is
hoping this summer to conquer Mt.
Everest. lN'e may soon hear that they
have attained their goal, and they will
have a thrilling story to tell the world.
These explorers and pioneers were
successful because they had one end in
view. and, of course. the driving power
of one aim is just as impelling in other
lines of activity. To take just one ex-
ample of this let ns look back at those
days when our constitution was
After the Revolutionary NVar Con-
gress sat in Philadelphia with the defi-
nite view that the United States should

the world. This was their goal. After

States now what they hoped it would
become? llid they not realize their
What shall be our final estimate of
the value of the work of men like
these? XYould they have contributed
more to the world if they had thought
only of financial success and personal
safety? Not all adventurers can be
equally successful, but every person
who is willing to make the sacrifices
necessary for high ideals. adds some-
thing to the sum total of the world's
wisdom. There are always some who
criticize a man who will not compro-
mise, whose motto is "Excelsior," The

SCIENCE AND MIRACLES .
I have chosen a suhject on which
one may spend hours in deep thoughtg
one on which many a man has spent a
lifetime in study and research. l.et us
consider the suhject,-Science and
Miracles. A miracle is a sign or
mighty wonder performed to show the
power of God, htit only employed in
a great cause or for a religious purpose,
Yet it is often given a hroader mean-
ing. heing employed to descrihe many
wonders which are explainahle hy
science and are not really supernatural.
'l'lie miracles of the llihle were per-
formed hy tiod and llis own Son, -le-
sus. Xvho else could divide the wa-
ters to let the children of lsrael return
lu t'anaan? fiod appeared to Moses
in a hurning hush to give llis com-
mands. -lesus walked on the turhulent
waters to cheer and encourage those in
danger. lle fed five thousand people
with hve loaves of hread and ltvtn
fishes. At the marriage feast lle
changed the water to wine. lle and
some of the disciples had the power to
heal the sick. jesus heing of the lloly
Trinity had divine power. hut the diss
ciples were common people who were
empowered hy God. 'l'hrough hlesus
and the disciples did tlod reveal
Men have performed what appear ltr
he miracles, hut nothing performed hy
man is unexplainahle. Nothing ex-
plainahle is really a miracle.
liotl is the Creator of an innnense
universe of which the earth is a very
small part. lle has peopled the earth
and made it rich in resources. 'l'o men
of heneficent minds lle has revealed
these secrets of nature and hy llis
guidance men have developed them to
a vast extent. liotl has guided men in
the study of science. tiod is the founf
dation of chemistry and chemistry is
the foundation of everything. livery
material suhstance can he analyzed and
its constituents deteriuined. The ani-
mal and vegetahle kingdoms have a
common characteristic. lifeg yet how
dissimilar it is in each. lloth have mas
terial hodies composed of essentially
the same elements.
Does this not create in you a desire
to understand what life is? .-X man
and a tree die, hut what a change takes
place? .VX tree dies liinh hy limh. QX
man may die in an instant and what
is lacking after death? ls not every
part of the hody there? lt will weigh
as much as hefore life departed. Xvhat.

in the image of find. that is indissol-
uhle? ls it not the mind, that strange
power that enahles man to develop in
himself to a greater or less degree a
likeness to his Master? The myste-
rious power that makes man the crown-
ing work of God.
Another matter which is not known
hy anyone, is what life is for. XYhy
are we on earth? lt is tiod's affair
and the lmest we can do is to live and
do Ilis will. Many people, if asked.
will say that life is to have a good
time. Xthat is success in life? Many
people accumulate great wealth and
are not very happy. Others are poor
and nmst work hard, hut are after all
very happy. XYhich have made the
greater success? Again, people have
studied and luecome very learned while
others can neither read nor write. You
may have olmserved that the ignorant
are often the happier. lf life is to
have a good time. will not people after
death have a good time in Paradise
supposing they are admitted? God
has put us on earth for some special
purpose and hy llis guidance we ac-
complish that purpose and die when
lle is ready to receive us.
llow wonderfully Ile has created the
animal kingdom! livery living crea-
ture eats food. a part of which is con-
verted into energy hy chemical changes
in the digestive system. The rest is
used to hnild up the tissues and keep
the lwody warm. This energy main-
tains the ahility of each to move about
and do tiod's will.
There are other chemical changes
which develop energy in everyday life.
toal is an important source of heat as
well as dyes. medicine, and tar. :Xu-
other important source is natural gas.
lt is used in making steam. in driving
engines. and in producing light. lloth
of these sources of energy are material
There is yet another source ul
energy which is coming into wide use.
lt is a mystery in itself. lt is electric-
ity which is delined as an imponder-
alile and invisilwle agent. producing
manifestations of energy. Yet can we
not see electricity? Benjamin Frank-
lin discovered that lightning is elec-
tricity. Although it has no material
form we can feel it. XN'e see lightning
and call it a hall of fire. W'hat ele-
ments are lmurning to produce fire
which we call electricity? lilectricity
is the means of conveying radio, wire-
less telegraphy, and telephone mes-
sages. All of these were considered as
miracles when invented and would
doulztless he so considered among sav-
ages. Xke hear of people controlling
a lioat at sea when no one is almoard
and even of sending out radio waves
that will stop motors in aeroplanes.
Many will wish to dishelieve such
statements. hut we who are ignorant
of what great inventors can do must
not he too hasty to criticise.
From time to time we see in the
northern heavens the Aurora Borealis,
more commonly called the northern
lights. lt arouses in us admiration,
awe. and curiosity. The ancients hc-
lieved it of supernatural origin, hut re-
cent ohservations show that it is

of our school and hope that you may be
in part, repaid by the honor which
lfryeburg Academy reflects upon you.
Teachers: It is under your guid-
ance that we have grown in wisdom
and understanding. lf our lives prove
noble, if we become in any measure
useful to the world, we owe to you
thanks for the molding of our youthful
character. No distance. h o w e v e r
great, can ever make us forget the help
and encouragement you have given us.
l'arents and friends: To you we owe
a great deal. You have borne equally
with us the joys and sorrows of school
life: by your tender care you have
guided us through many a narrow
strait and past many jutting rocks.
May the joy which you now have never
grow less, but may it increase as we
launch out into the world. You have
made many sacrifices that we might be
here today and we hope that we may
prove worthy of such sacrifice.
Undergraduates: To you we can
only say farewall and hope that the re-
mainder of your school life may be as
happy as ours has been.
Classmates: The close of this
school year has been a long expected
event. VVe can hardly realize that to-
night we part, never to meet again as
students of Fryeburg Academy. Four
years ago some of us were strangers
but there has sprung up a friendship
so strong we wish it might last forever.
The four happy years have passed
all too quickly. As we leave Fryeburg
Academy let us resolve to try and
make a mark in the world and by so
doing bring honor not only on our-
selves but on our school and the Class
We have shared together our hard-
sh.ps and we trust that from our con-
stant comradeship in the past, and
from jthe consciousness of unfilled as-
pirations, each of us has obtained
something helpful to him in the future.

TRAPPED AMONG THE HUNS
liarly on the morning of September
twenty-fifth, a young American mil-
lionaire, Sherman Berkeley by name,
sat in the sitting room of his apartment
in Berlin reading. Ile picked up a
newspaper. glancing leisurely at the
headlines. Suddenly he started.
"Harvey l" he shouted.
A middle-aged man, seated o-1
other side of the room, raised his eyes
from his book.
"VVhat's the matter now ?" he asked
calmly. He had not lived with a ha-
rum-scarum like Sherman Berkeley
for five years without learning that
such sudden outbursts of feeling were
apt to be of little consequence.
"Read that!" was the answer.
llarveyl took the paper. This is
what he read:
"FRANCE HAS D E C L A R E IJ
VVAR ON GERMANY."
He looked at his employer in dismay.

lfinally the younger man said, "Well,
I rlonlt suppose it is so very alarming
after all. lt simply means that we

"1 shall have the jewels which Dad

"'l'hose will be of no use to you here.

do is for me to go directly to Marseilles
and horrovv money for the voyage

Sherman spent the morning in paclz-
ing. About noon he decided to call
on the landlord. lle might not accept
the proposition of their leaving kindly.
Un hearing that his tenant intended
to take the afternoon train he said,
"'l'here has been a notice posted in the
square saying that all foreigners must

a slight linglish accent in Sherman's

".'Xhl my line fellow. So you thot
you'd fool us did you? You are the
linglish spy we have been seeking for
the past week. Your passport will l.e
made out to yonder prison."
The amazed .Xmerican was hand-
cuffed and dragged roughly across the
street into a damp, dirty cell.
XYhen the guard locked the door
Sherman sat down to think.
XYhat a predicament he was in to be
sure! Unless he could get out of llerf
lin before the following noon the liner
would have left l,yons. lf he did not
arrive in Marseilles on the midnight
express llarvey would be frantic. 'l'he
thot of llarvey suggested a plan. llc
called to the guard and asked to be
allowed to send a telegram. lfor an-
swer the guard pointed to a sign on the
wall of the cell. It read:
"NU tfUMINlLfNlCA'l'lUN IS Al,

llarvey gave up in despair. llc
knew that spies were hanged in Kier-
many. l'rohably hy this time tomor-
rovv he would be dead.
About eight o'clock that evening a
little girl went along the passage by the
cell. She was a pretty little thing
about eight years of age. .Xs she
passed the door of Sherman's cell she
felt sorry for the poor man within and
stopped to push a blossom through the

"Uh, you are the dear man that gave
us money for food," she cried. "XX'hy

Sherman told her his story.
lilva asked the guard if she might
go into Sherman's cell. 'l'he guard
hesitated but the wistful look in the
ch.ld's eyes softened his heart. lle
THE ACADEMY BELL 17
silently unlocked the door to admit
"You poor man, I will try to help
you," lisped the little girl. Then she
whispered something in his ear. Sher-
man's face brightened.
Very soon Elva departed to visit her
worthless father who was imprisoned
About midnight a door in the back
of Sherman's cell opened as if by mag-
ic. Little lilva appeared wrapped in
a gray cloak. Putting her Finger on
her lips she motioned him to follow
her. They had left the secret passage
and were almost to the street door
when a voice called, "Halt! VVho goes
A guard swung his lantern full in
their faces. "Alas! 1 thought there
would be trouble when Herr Von Mor-
ton showed you that secret passage.
As for you, sir, l will put you where
you will be safe for tonight. Tomor-
row night you will need no shelter,"
Next morning Sherman was brought
before the court. He was tried and
pronounced guilty of spying. lie was
to be hanged at sunset.
just as the judge was about to dis-
miss the court a messenger entered.
XYhat joy he brought to the innocent
prisoner no one can tell. Anyway he
saved Sherman's life for he bore a let-
ter from llarvey telling of the plans
for sailing. This letter persuaded the
court that Sherman was no spy.
The young man arrived in America
just in time to escape the terrible sub-

the door of his house after a friendly

"And now," he said, turning to h.s
twelve-year-old son, who was standing
beside him, "l want you to take this

ln a short time jimmy arrived at Mr.

walked along the road towards the
postoliice and also by the Haynes lot.
As he neared the Haynes lot a dog
came bounding out of the bushes, wag-
ging its tail in a friendly way. jimmy
stopped and patted the dog, wondering
as he did so to whom it belonged.
Suddenly the dog walked slowly
towards the woods, whining as he did
"That dog wants me to follow it."
thought jimmie, remembering a book
that told of the same thing which he
had been reading.
"l might just as well follow it, for l

A PROFITABLE MISTAKE
.lames Vvilson, while a delegate at
a convention met a young lady, whom
he had known in college. She asked
him to call. The afternoon that he
was to call on her, his mind was oc-
cupied with a subject which had been
brought up at a club meeting, that he
The Orphans' Club in that city was
going to try to raise money for a new
home. They were about to elect a
new president for the club. The one
who proved himself best qualified dur-
ing this lfund Drive for the ollice
would probably receive it. jim was
respected very highly by the members
of the club. .lf he could only do well
in this work, perhaps he would be
elected president. lle was framing in
his mind what he would say when he
asked the prominent business men of
the city to give money.
.lim had heard some of the prominent
men in the club talking about a cer-
tain lllr. Thompson, who was very
wealthy, but he was as stingy as he
was wealthy. Their opinion seemed
to be that the man who dared ask him
for money and succeeded in getting
any would be entitled to the presi-
jim forgot that the young lady, Miss
Kennerson, had told him that she then
lived on 12 instead of 8 Spruce St. Ile
had called on this certain young lady
quite frequently when he was in col-
lege and without thinking he called at
H Spruce St. and rang the bell.
just as he pressed the button he re-
membered, but it was too late probably.
But then, perhaps the bell wouldn't
be answered, he had given such a short
ring. lint, alas! He heard footsteps
20 THE ACADEMY BELL
coming along the hall. XN'hat could
he say? just then he noticed the
name, lirown, on the door. A brilliant
idea came to him. l'erhaps he could
make a dignified departure after all.
The door opened and he found himself
face to face with a very stately, digni-
james took off his hat and bowing,
said politely, "l low do you do. ls Mr.
Thompson in?" There! of course if
Mr. Brown lived there, there would not
be any Mr. Thompson. He was wait-
ing for the woman to say, "No," so that
he could leave, when she said, "Yes,
come right in."
XX'hat should he do? She was going
into a waiting room. expecting him to
follow. Of course he must. There
was nothing else to do. Could he frame
up something about his father and this
Mr. Thompson having been friends in
college? No. he could not. lle knew
he was no good at blufling. The
woman was saying, "Sit right down.
lIe'll be right in." Absently jim sat
down, still searching his brain franti-
cally for an excuse to get out of the
place. lle shoved his right hand into
his pocket--to aid him in thinking
better, perhaps. lint if that was the
reason, he did it in vain. "XYhat would
happen?" he asked himself. Well, he
would soon know, for he could hear
some one coming into the room. Prob-
ably it was Mr. Thompson. Yes, it
was. lle was coming into the room.
jim wondered what he would say. He
must break that embarrassing silence.
lle took his hand out of his pocket, un-
consciously taking out the booklets of
the Orphan Clulfs work in it. He had
forgotten all about the fund in his ex-
citement but now as he remembered it
he gave a sigh of relief. At least, he
could pretend that he came for that.
After what seemed to jim an hour,
he heard himself saying, "How do you
clo, Mr. Thompson, l am a representa-
tive of the Orphans Club. There is
great need of another home for the or-
phans in this city. The club is trying
to raise money to build one. l wonder
if you would consider giving some-
thing toward it?"
Mr. Thompson seemed very much
interested in jim's description of the
club's plan, and listened to him grave-
ly. NYhen jim had finished, he thot
for a minute, then said:
"Yes, my boy, l'll gladly give you
some money. l have always felt that
I should like to. l have the name
around here of being rather stingy and
grouchy. and none of the boys ever
ask me to help any of their good causes
along, XYhen l was younger and just
starting in business, l had to be rather
hard on the boys to get rid of them.
Then they started passing by me. l
thot nothing of that at first, but in the
late years it has sort of hurt my feel-
ings. You find out just how much it
will cost to build the home. At the
end of a month l will give what is
needed to put with what you already
have by that time."
jim suddenly realized that this must
he the stingy Mr. Thompson that the
boys had been talking about. He
wasn't really stingy at heart, after all.
THE ACADEMY BELL 21
l'eople had made him seem that way.
jim was astounded at the wonderful
generosity. lle thanked Mr, Thomp-
son as politely as he could in his ex-
citement. Mr. Thompson seemed to
understand and only smiled and he
went to the door with jim.
jim called up the manager of the
liund Committee and told him. The
manager said that it really was the Mr.
Thompson that the men had been talk-
jim was too excited to go to Miss
lxt-nnerson's then. lle went to his
rooms to think it all out, pleading a
headache to Miss Kennerson by phone.
The next day jim received notice
that he was elected president of the
club. jim could not understand why
everyone thot that that was such a
great feat. After that time he and lllr.
Thompson were great friends. jim
had really broken the thickening wall
between lllr. Thompson and the rest
of the world.

THE BOSTON AND MAINE RAIL-
The first nation-wide railroad strike
ever called by union-heads was called on
july I, 1922. The men who struck were
the shopmen and yard workers. They
were led to believe that this would cripple
the service so much that the railroad
heads would be forced to yield to their
demands. This did prove to be the case
on many of the larger, more eliicient
roads, but on the smaller roads where
poor service was common they stood the
shock better and hired strike-breakers to
carry on the work as best they could.
This soon broke the strike and the strik-
ers were forced to go back to their jobs
or lose them.
The one exception to this was the
lloston and Blaine system 'in New ling-

THE ACADEMY BELL 23
of tJbei'-.'Xmmergau to the outside world
is derived from the Passion Plays which
are performed there by the villagers at
intervals of ten years and are now at-
tended by many thousands of liuropean
and .-Nmerican people.
The Uber-Ammergau Passion l'lay
took its rise from a vow made by the
inhabitants in 101313 with the hope of stay-
ing a plague then raging.
The performances take place on the
Sundays of summer, in a large open-air
theatre holding about 0000 people. There
are seventeen principal actors and be-
tween six and seven lmndred other per-
formers. The parts are distributed at a
general election, held on the sixth of De-
cember, the feast of St. Nicholas, and he
who is chosen as' Christus is regarded as
the village king. ln 1870, 1880 and 1800
-Ioseph Klayer took the part of Christus,
and in 15100 .Xnton l.ang took the part.
lle was a wood carver, and when the
news came that he had been chosen, he
did not leave his work, but simply said.
"l have tried to live the life," then he re-
sumed his carving with the thought that
he must not be unfaithful in little things,
he who had been chosen ruler over so
much. lle must tinish his work.
The tirst sight of the chorus, eight men
and ten women, is something which can-
not be readily forgotten-the band of
peasants, fresh from their daily work,
every expression, every movement, full
of dignity. grace, and beauty, of noble
simplicity, and with an entire absence of
self-consciousness. Such is the effect even
to those who can clearly see every motion
and play of feature: no distanceisneeded
to lend enchantment to those noble figures
and faces. Their robes and the blending
of colors are striking and beautiful.
Now the first scene of the Passion l'lay
begins, and often as we may have read
or heard of the entry into jerusalem as
acted in this theatre, the reality far ex-
ceeds our expectations. lt is one of the
most powerful and etlfective scenes in the
whole drama. As the seemingly endless
crowd flows on, men, women and children
are all swayed by one sentiment, every
voice joining in the choral march.
The first appearance of the Lihristus is
apt to cause disappointment. perhaps be-
cause expectations have been wrought
too highly by the song and triumph of the
multitude. .Xt all events the first feeling
is that he has attempted the impossible.
The attitude, also, cannot but injure the
effect. and the first words he utters may
cause disapiptiintment. "What do 1 lze-
hold? ls this tiod's house, or is it a
market-place?" he exclaims with accents
of strong indignation. "Lol l come to
do thy willlu. was expressed in every
word and action. bringing the thought
before the spectators with wonderful
vividness. lle was possessed by his
mission, and throughout the ttunult and
variety of the play, this calm unity of
unwavering purpose was manifested with
Une of the next very touching scenes
is "The Parting at llethanyf' lNlayer's act-
ing as Christus here was very admirable.
"Once more, farewell, beloved, peaceful
Ilethany. never more shall l tarry amid
thy still valleys." .Xnd in this scene with
his mother he sustains his part with true
feeling and dignity. The words he speaks
are all distinctly utteredg "Thou wilt
suffer with me, dearest mother, wilt
battle with me in my mortal struggle, and
also take part in my triumph. 'lhe first

her risen Master. After the Christus
leaves Mary she exelainis. "Halleluiah,
lle is risen," and the cry is echoed on all
sides. The Christus is seen for the last

our lighter and inexperienced team by
a Z8-l-I score. Our points were made
by Quinn UU, and Gilmore CSD.

the Paper City lads showed us their

journeyed to the University of lNle..
to take part in the tournament. The
team, tired Out by the long trip, was
taken into camp by XYilton Academy.
NVhile this season was not the most
successful in F. A. basketball history,
it was sufficient to show the Academy
teams still have power. ll Fryeburg
teams had the great advantage that
most schools have, a Gym, lar greater
