LINCOLNIZING THE WORLD
Nothing in the new or old world inspires the people like
the spirit of Lincoln. lt is not just the United States that
honors and remembers him, but England, France, and many
VV'e all have to form our own characters. They are not
given us, and we have to develop them to suit ourselves. Lin-
coln had to form his character, and he based it on sense, cour-
age, and truth. Wfe should base ours on these principles, in
order to make ourselves most fit for the world, and the things
we must do.
If everyone were like Lincoln, his greatness would dis-
appear. Everyone cannot be like Lincoln, so he remains un-
equaled and unparalleled, while we struggle to obtain his
The road to greatness is peculiar. For example, the
statesman Cecil Rhodes when a boy had consumption. He
went to Afrfca where he made a large fortune in diamonds.
He pushed the British boundaries far into that continent.
When he died he was buried on a hill in Africa, and now stu-
dents, travelers, and all kinds of people visit his grave and
remember his greatness.
Lincoln's character began to grow while he was reading
the few books he could get hold of. He lived in a time when
people made their own opinions regardless of anyone else.
Lincoln's opinions had purity, straightness, and some thought
of the other fellow in them. All his actions and opinions were
in the light, nothing that he did was hidden from the people.
lf the countries of Turkey, Russia, Italy, Germany, and Japan
l'ad these methods, there would be no fear of what they would
do next. If the world had Lincolnis stability of purpose there
wouldn't be any war debts or Arms Conferences. If the world
had Lincoln's straightness and unselfishness, there would be
no jealousy between the countries. H I
Lincoln gave to the world a sweep of universal policy.
All people were his brothers, the Northerners, the Southern-
ers and negroes. We should have a universal policy. The
success of the countries of Europe and other continents is our
success. their failure, our failure. Qur attention to the VVorld

reatness of other men of history, to build our characters on,
TNQ should use these things, and contribute our value to the
world. We are under obligation to the people who lived be-
fore us, and made the world a bet-ter place for us to live in.
We should all catch the spirit of Lincoln, and make the
world finer, sweeter, more human, more sublime, and more

IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN WORSE
It was only four-thirty, but on this bleak December after-
noon it was as dark as it would be at nine in September. The
downfall of snow that had lasted all day was turning to rain,
and the icy pavements made walking very difficult. The
lights glimmered through the darkness and together with the
rain and mist presented a scene almost terrifying.
It was the time in the afternoon when the theatre crowds
were dispersing. They vvove their Way hurriedly homexvard,
blinded by the rainy snow. In the hurry of getting to their
homes, no one noticed the wee slip of a girl who pushed her
Way in the opposite direction, through the mass of pedestrians.
That is, no one but "Jimmy" Hogan, noticed her. "Jimmy"
was the policeman, who for fifteen faithful years had paced
his beat from Fifth Street to the bridge.
He saw her now vvending her way in and out among the
throngs. At times there seemed danger that she would be
trampled to the wet pavement. Bravely she elbowed her way
along until at last she left the city behind and hastened toward
She was attired in a "slicker," the right side of which
bulged out. As she proceeded down the street the bulge
changed to the left. "jimmy" followed, keeping far enough
behind in order that he might not attract attention. She
turned a corner. By hastening his steps it was not long be-
fore ".Iimmy" again caught sight of her. This time he saw
no perceivable bulge, but under her arm she carried a large
bundle-large for a person so small.
She turned another corner and before "Jimmy" could
again regain sight of her, she was on the bridge, gazing down
into the black waters. She was resting her parcel on the rail-
ing as if trying to decide whether she was doing the correct
thing. As "Jimmy" came in sight she raised it high above
her head and flung it far out into the foaming waters.
It was done! At last she was rid of the one hateful thing
in her life! How she hated it! How many uncomfortable
hours had she spent with that thing! She felt now as though
life was Worth living!
She started to run, she must get home before her husband
got there! She glanced around and savv "Jimmy" about to
dive off the bridge into the icy Waters. Should she yell? No!
This was her affair, not his! She hastened on. She turned
corner after corner, and at last she fairly flung herself against
the door of her home nearly exhausted. The door was opened
by her "better half" who shouted far too loudly from within.
"Great Heavens! VVoman, where's my saxaphone? It's gone !"

But when it comes to worldly ways l
He isn't there at all.
He cannot do the Charleston,
Never smoked a cigarette.
He doesn't drive high-powered cars
A carriage serves him yet.
His strongest drink is "Mellens,"
He never makes a date.

GRANDPA TWIDDLE-DUM'S GOAT.
"Listen, my children, and I shall quote
Of a prim young man and my grandpa's goat."
About twenty years ago old Grandpa Twiddle-Dum had
a frisky young goat called "Buttah." QHow it derived its
name you may easily guess?
Une day young Mr. Percival Prim came to call on grand-
pa. Now Mr. Percival Prim was a very conceited person who
always wore a high silk hat and carried an ivory-headed cane.
His patent leather shoes were polished until you might have
seen your face in them if you had troubled to look, his spats
were of finest white suede, his white Hannels creased to a
knife-like crease, and his black coat scrupulously brushed.
Around his neck was a black and white striped necktie.

the face Mr. Prim managed to keep an eyeglass stuck into his

"That animal will eat tin cans," said grandpa. "VVant
to see him do it?"
Mr. Prim blinked his eyes, looked at his host to see if he
were suffering from a sunstroke, then hnally said, "Er-r-r, yes,
that would be rather interestingf'
By the vvay, did I forget to mention that Mr. Prim wore
a gold watch chain? He did, anyvvay, and "Piuttah" was very
much interested in it. VVhile Grandpa Twiddle-Dum went
to fetch a tin can, the goat slowly approached the door of his
pen, keeping his eye on that shiny gold chain.
Mr. Prim became annoyed at the animal's friendliness so
he backed away. Wheretipon "Buttah," becoming angry at
losing his prize, crashed head first through the door. He
started for Mr. Prim who ran across the yard and scrambled
over a nearby fence very nimbly for one who was alwavs care-
ful to walk correctly. The goat followed close behind but
came to a halt when he reached the fence.
On the other side was a muddy pool of water made by the

A WEIRD NIGHT
Wfhether it was to my advantage or not I am quite uncer-
tain, although I do know that I learned a great lesson during
my visit to the haunted mansion in Norfork Woocls.
Three of us had decided to investigate the old Appleton
Mansion, to see the ghost travel up and down the corridors.
VVe had heard of the weird tales told about the murder of
Jane Appleton and of the escape of -Iohn Appleton. VX7e had
heard of the return of the ghost and of its wanderings. Until
the time that we visited the mansion I had not really believed
the tales, but for a while the happenings led me to believe
that all that had been said, and a great deal more, was true.
Wfe picked Friday night for the exploration, and, as it
happened, that Friday night was the darkest night in all the
whole summer. '
The tale went that at twelve o'clock a light shone for
some minutes from the tower on the mansion. It was also a
known fact that an old negro slave of the Appletons lived in
a hut close to the back of the mansion. This night I feared
meeting the old negro much more than the ghosts. Wfith the
aid of a flashlight we reached the ancient moss-covered gate
and entered the once well kept grounds, now a scene of deso-
lation. VVe succeeded in reaching the veranda of the beautiful
romantic old mansion. Its kind was known only in Kentucky.
Wife tried all the windows on the terrace, but they were all
tightly fastened. At last, after much pushing, one window
opened and we crawled in. 'Using the Hashlight we found our-
selves in a large parlor, once beautiful, but now showing lack
of care. The furniture was covered with sheeting which
looked ghostly under the rays of the flashlight. VVe walkecf
on into the reception hall which was very serene and quiet. I
was about to laugh at the thought of this peaceful house being
haunted when down the staircase flashed a light. My com-
panions seemed to fade into the darkness. I was alone in the
hall, a door slammed and all was silent. I reached for the
flashlight, but it was gone. Turning toward the door through
which I had entered, to my astonishment it had gone and only
a blank wall met my glance. just then something black
passed by me. Ye Gods! I tore down the hall, grasped the
stair rail, and fairly flew up the stairs. I paused, for there on
the landing was a white figure. A ghost was my thought and
I nearly fainted. The ghost turned and lied and I dropped to
my knees, my heart pounding so that I could hear nothing

didn't pass the threshold for there in the center of the room
stood two white Hgures, ghosts! I closed the door as quickly
as I had opencd it and crept down the hall. Gpening another
door I found a room in which a lantern had been hidden. It
was still lighted, standing behind a pile of rubbish. I grabbed
the lantern and hurried into the kitchen. The ghosts had
gone. "Will I ever get out of this alive?" I asked myself.
and blowing out the lantern I opened the first door I came to.
Smelling fresh paint, I realized that some one had recently
been in the room. I sat down in a chair and wiped the cold
perspiration from my brow. After some time I reached the
front hall and hurried up the stairway. I was about to open
a window and jump to safety when I heard a sound which
made my blood run cold. Some one was coming! Down the
hall came the two white figures that I had seen in the kitchen.

negro.. It had been his custom for years to put on a white
coat and go to the tower room at twelve o'clock and light a
light as a guide for his master, Iohn Appleton, who fifty years
ago had fled, heart-broken, after his wife had been murdered.
At that time Old Tom, the negro, was a house servant and he
still wore the same white coat. He had buried the faithful
servants one by one and now he was the only one left.
"But," I told them, 'KI canlt see where the skeleton came

shortly to return with a mirror. He told me to turn back to
and then look in the mirror. I did so and therewas the skele-
ton. VVhen I had sat in the chair earlier in the evening, it had
been recently painted, and had left its shape on the back of my
coat. What a fool I was to jump so at conclusions. If I had
really tried to figure out our rampage, I should have found
nothing to terrify me.

In the compass of a nation
Which extends from sea to sea,
There are many institutions
Famed by men of high degree.
Cf these gloried institutions
Which are clothed in wondrous fame
None a higher standing carries
Than our old F. A. in Maine.
Six-score fourteen years behind us
Marks a date of great renown,
As then rose that humble structure
Gn the plain in Fryeburg town.
In this lowly wooden building
Taught that grand and noble soul,
Daniel Webster, honored statesman,
Who attained a lofty goal.
Now behold! A large brick building
Built by trained and skilful hands,
VVith its pleasant shady campus
In a new location stands.
In the foothills of the mountains,
On the broad elm arched way,
Overlooking grassy meadows,
You will find its site today.
Thru the students' worthy efforts
A HCW gym is standing near, -
With a bounteous equipment,
To the athletes' heart
So our brave and sturdy athletes
A Many contests light and win,
s our shouts proclaimin vict'r
Through the spacious structure ring.
THE ACADEMY BELL
Then aside from our athletics,
VVe must keep our standing high.
"First our studies," is the motto
On which, ever, we rely.
And our speakers and debaters,
VVith a gifted fluent tongue,
Backed by wit and understanding,
Hear -their praises ever rung.
Here are formed some lasting friendships,
Which are severed not by time,
And these many happy mem'ries
Help to make our lives sublime.
We shall sorrow, we shall suffer,
And our hopes may fall and die, '
But shall rise again thru musing
Cf the happy days gone by.'
Now these days are swiftly passing
Thru the corridors of time,
And our youth is likewise waning
In life's ever upward climb.
So let's rise and ight together,
And our goal shall be the sky,
"VVork and win," shall be our motto,
As we, storms of life defy.
When the Latin seems perplexing,
Or the figures donit compare,
Don't give in, but fight a battle,
Those who win are those who dare.
Un the book of registration,
These are names which may bring fame
To this grand old institution,
And the Pine Tree 'State of Maine.
Time alone will tell the story,
Now we each must do our best,
As did those who went before us,
And proved worthy of the test.

FRIDAY, THE THIRTEENTH
By S.xM,xNTHA SLADE
ffsuch an unlucky day! But then why shouldnlt it have
I unlucky when it was Friday, the thirteenth. First thing
fedilgl was to break my shoe lacing and that always does make
me mad. I hunted around an, couldn't find another so I had
to take a string an' by that time jake Cthat s my husbandj was
t his breakfast. Then I burned the toast
an, jake he wonit eat burned toast so I had to make some more.
That took all my bread that I was savin' for dinner 'cause I
knew I was goin' to be busy. Then I'd forgotten the cream
for his coffee and just as I was comin' out of the pantry with
a pitcher full I stepped on the cat an' went sprawlin', throwin'
that cream all over my clean floor. An' while I was tryin' to
get up, the cat jumped on the table that was near me an' up-
set the pitcher of water all over me. I didn't get 'round to do
my work for an hour after 'cause I had to get settled down
agin after my fall. Qur cat was black an, I still think my
unlucky day is due to her. I was plannin, to put a new cover
on an old feather bed thatday. It was awful hot an' I dreaded
to do it, but I thought I'd get it over with. Ild just started
to rip it a little when the door bell rang, and I was in such a
hurry to get downstairs that I caught my foot in the feather
bed and pulled it right over me. I ,most smothered and when
I got out I looked like a bird. But that bell was a-ringin' an'
I hustled right down, feathers an' all. There was a man at
the front door an, he just stared at me an' I sez to him that
he needn't stare at me like that 'cause he'd been the cause of
that catastrophe, an' he hnally got 'round to ask me if I wanted
some 50313, powder, hair dye, perfume, needles, thread, an' a

water an' poured the dye in. Then I soused it up an, down
an' then found my way to the looking-glass to see my black
hair,,an' then I opened my eyes. Was that black hair I saw?
No, no, a bright purple! I didn't know what to do. What
had I done? I knew that man was a fake! I looked at the
directions an' read, "Use no soap whatever as it is apt to
change color of dye." Then that was what was the matter.
I had used soap an' I had purple hair! That was awful!

him some hot biscuits and canned blueberries for supper 'cause
he likes 'em awful well an' so I went down cellar after the
blueberries. I got 'most to the top step when along came

ran right between my legs an' upset me an' I tried to put that
jar of blueberries on the step when I felt myself fallin', but
they came a-crashing down on my head. How it hurt! Wust
of all I felt blueberries runnin' down my neck an' into my face.
I didn,t fall far 'cause I caught hold of the railin', but my hair
was a wreck. But anyway them blueberries saved the day
'cause I let ,lake believe that that was what made my hair
purple and let everybody else think that, too.
I didn't have any more bad luck that day. That cat
started my bad luck an' then she helped me out by making me
spill blueberries all over my head. I don't know zactly what
to think of that cat."

THE KU KLUX KLAN
The Ku Klux Klan was a direct outgrowth of the Recon-
struction Acts of 1867. In the Reconstruction Acts the dom-
inance of the Negro in the South was to be included even in
the Constitution of the United States. When this new article
was really put in force, 1870, the Southern white men were
stirred with the desire to protect themselves, by means no
matter how desperate, from the defects of a government made
by ignorant blacks. As the new law forbid the brilliant South-
ern statesmen their right in politics the only way which they
had of preserving themselves was by private means, as a force
hostile to the government.
Experienced and sober men understood that the only
way which could mend the breach was the slow process of the

It was the satisfaction of seeing the looks of terror they
brought from the darkies, that put thoughts of mischief in
This example was found very tempting by dishonorable
men in other Southern states., Every town wanted to have its
own Ku Klux Klan, until in a few years there was formed
"An Invisible Empire of the South," bound together in a com-
mon cause. Instead of being a joke the organization had
grown to be serious. They were "to protect the people from
indignities and wrongs, to succor the suffering, particularly
the families of dead Confederate soldiersg to influence what
they conceived to be the real laws of their states and defend
the Constitution of the United States and all laws passed in
conformity thereto, to aid in executing all constitutional laws
and protect the people from unlawful seizures and from trial
otherwise than by jury."
ln a short time other similar orders had been organized:
Knights of the White Camelia, Pale Faces, Constitutional
Union Guards, and the White Brotherhood.

THE ACADEMY BELL 21
In 1871 a committee of twenty-one was sent to the South
to determine the true facts in regard to the outrages being
committed. Cn April 20, 1871, an act was passed which was
meant to crush the Ku Klux. This provided that any act, of
violence or of intimidation, was a conspiracy against the gov-
ernment, and was punishable by fine or imprisonment. Presi-
dent Grant immediately took advantage of his power and
ordered the arrest of some daring clansmen in South Carolina.
The Federal officers in the other states followed the example
and in less than a year an end was made of the whole business.
At the height of its power the Klan was composed of
nearly a half million persons. The Klan accomplished one of
its main purposes: white supremacy in the South.
In Georgia in 1915 another Ku K-lux Klan sprang up and
very quickly spread through the North and West, creating
national alarm. This time the activities were directed against
Catholics and jews, as well as negroes.
In 1921 some murders took place in Louisiana and were
attributed to the Klan. That government pleaded with na-
tional authorities to stamp out the organization, but in 1923
no action had been taken by the Government at Washington.
The following facts are from the defense of the Klan by
Hiram Wesley Evans:
The klan does not attempt to argue on the doctrine of
universal social equality. Science does not support it and the
average American does not believe in it. This matter can
never be settled by argument. If ever settled, it will be by
race instinct, personal prejudices and sentiment. Actual so-
cial equality between whites and any other race is not prac-
ticed to any great extent anywhere on earth. Facts prove the
idea unworkable. The Klan looks forward to the day when
the union of a white person with one of any other race will be
illegal in every state in the Union.
This is the basic idea of the Klan:
"VVe believe that the pioneers that built America be-
queathed to their own children a priority right to it, the con-
trol of it and of its future, and that no one on earth can claim
any part of this inheritance except through generosity. We
believe, too, the mission of America under Almighty God is
to perpetuate and develop just the kind of nation and just the
kind of civilization which our forefathers created. This is
said without offense to other civilizations, but we do believe
that ours, through all possible growth and expansion, should
22 THE ACADEMY BELL
remain the same kind that was 'brought forth upon this con-
tinent.' Also, we believe that races of men are as distinct as
breeds of animals, that any mixture between races of any
great divergence is evil, that the American stock, which was
bred under highly selective surroundings, has proved its value
and should not be mongrelized, that it has automatically and
instinctively developed the kind of civilization which is best
suited to its own healthy life and growth, and that this can-
not safely be changed except by ourselves and along the lines
of our own character. Finally, we believe that all foreignerx
were admitted with the idea, and on the basis of at least an
implied understanding, that they would become a part of us,
adopt our ideas and ideals, and help in fulfilling our destiny
along those lines, but never that they should be permitted to
force usuto change into anything else.
"There can be no doubt about the traditional American
spirit, the Americanism of the pioneers

to the Roman Catholic Church. The facts are that the Roman
Church has always opposed the fundamental principle of lib-
erty for which America stands. It has made certain compro-
mises, taking advantage of the tolerance we give but which
t e Roman Church denies, and is trying through these com-
promises to win control of the nation.
The real objection to Romanism in America is n t h
o t at
it is a religion-which is no objection at all-but that it is a
church in politicsg an organized, disciplined powerful rival
to every political government. A religion in politics is seri-
ous, a church in politics is deadly to free institutions.
Another ground for our opposition to the Roman Cath-
olic Church is that most of its members in this country are
aliens, and that the Church not only makes ff
. . no e ort to help
them become assimilated to Americanism, but actually works
to prevent this and to keep the Catholics as a group apart.
CS Qf any

it Of us,
THE ACADEMY BELL 23
The Klan considers the jew a far smaller problem. For
one thing, he is confined to a few cities, and is no problem at
all to most of the country. For another thing, his exclusive-
ness, political activities and refusal to become assimilated
are racial rather than religious, based on centuries of persecu-
tion. They cannot last long in the atmosphere of free Amer-
ica, and we may expect that with the passage of time the
serious aspects of this problem will fade away.
I will not deny for a moment the charge that the Klan's
leadership is weak, and that the Klan has not solved the prob-
lem of the cure of our national ills. In fact, it has offered no
cure and does not pretend to have one. All it is able to do is
to help voice the protest of the plain people, and call attention
to the evils, in the knowledge tha-t until the trouble and dan-
ger are clearly seen, no cure will even be attempted.
The mistakes of the Klan do need defense, but they are
not fatal. They have grown out of the conditions under which
we began work, and out of human fallibility. They are being
corrected. In spite of them the Klan remains the only leader
in the effort to stop the perversion of our national character.

TPTE FOOTBALL BANQUET
The girls of Fryeburg Academy have started something
which we hope will be instituted in the life of the school. It
shows the spirit that is behind the athletic teams, and a spirit
that exists noticeably in Fryeburg Academy. Members of
any school activity always like to feel that the entire school
is behind them in whatever they do. Interest so keen has
never been shown before, and we know that it will be contin-
ued. There are two girls that deserve to be mentioned, Esther
Baker, and Ruth Peterson. They were, perhaps, the founders.
Able assistance was given by the other girls of the School and
Mr and Mrs. Frank Peterson.
To top off the annual victory from Kennett High School
a banquet was given to the squad by the girls. It was held in
the Chapel of the Congregational Church. The tables were
decorated with the school colors, and places were set for all
members of the squad, the faculty, and those of the school
who wished to attend. Placed beside each plate of members
of the squad was a small football with a card attached which
gave the name of the player and his position. The meal
served was "ht for a King" and everybody did justice to it.
Toastmaster LaCasce gave a talk on football, games played,
the spirit of the school, and the future of the team. He also
congratulated the girls on what they had done, saying' he
hoped that they would continue their good work. Mr. Deer-
ing gave a very good talk on football, and what it developed
in the players. Capt. Quinn was called o.n and he gave ac-
counts of the games, and prospects for the future. Farris
and McKeen also said a few words. McKeen was congrat-
ulated by Toastmaster LaCasce for telling the biggest lie of
the evening. Thurlow, representing the Freshman Class. was
asked to speak, but through Freshman modesty, he stated that
he had nothing to say. School songs were sung. Cheers
were given for the girls, Mr. and Mrs. Peterson, each member
of the team, and for Mr. LaCasce, football coach. The party
then adjourned to the gym to dance. At twelve o'clock the
party broke up. Every one expressed hope that the Football
Banquet would become established in the school life of Frye-
burg Academy. ,

THE ACADEMY BELL 29
From the first the school spirit in this direction was ex-
cellent and there were undoubtedly some of the candidates
who could have performed nearly as well if not as creditably
as the speakers themselves. The teams at first proposed
were, negative, Mr. Robert Littlefield and Miss Ruth Shaw as
speakers, with Miss Daphine Barker as alternate, and for the
affirmative, Miss Ruth Gaffner and Brooks Eastman as speak-
ers, with Miss Averil Harnden as alternate. lt was discov-
ered, however, that Miss Gaffner was ineligible, so Miss
Harnden was elected as first speaker and Mr. john Wfeston
The teams continued in this order throughout the season
and strove, under the coaching of Mr. Deering and Miss Earris,
to develop a winning team. Mr. Deering initiated the stu-
dents into the mysteries of debating, while Miss Earris on her
part secured voluminous material by many well-written let-
ters to men and women of importance throughout the United
States. So much for our embryo team.
Friday evening, March the nineteenth, the two teams
representing Fryeburg Academy began their careers as de-
baters. Instead of being placed in a triangular debate as was
customary in the Bates League, Eryeburg Academy had been
placed in a dual debate with Bridgton Academy, so that our
negative debated the Bridgton Academy affirmative at Bridg-
ton, and our affirmative, the Bridgton Academy negative at
Eryeburg. At the start both Eryeburg teams realized that
theirs were no mean antagonists. Even at the close of the
main speeches, there seemed to be no choice between the
teams. However, in the rebuttal the Fryeburg teams showed
a marked superiority. Nevertheless, the difference was so
slight that the members of both teams awaited 'the decision of
the Judges with many qualms and a few chills running up and
down their backs. Therefore the Eryeburgites were hilarious
when they learned that both teams had won, the negative by
a two-to-one decision, with Miss Ruth Shaw as second best
speaker, and the affrrmative by a unanimous decision, with
Brooks Eastman as best speaker.
After the recess at Easter the two teams worked harder
than ever, if that be possible, so that they might perform cred-
itably at Bates.
30 THE ACADEMY BELL
Friday morning, the sixteenth of hpril, the two teams set
out together for Lewiston, accompanied by Mr. Deering and
Miss Farris. Having spent the forenoon in Portland, they
reached Bates College at about four olclock in the afternoon.
Here they were all hospitably entertained by the College.
That evening the teams debated in a triangular debate
with the Deering High School negative and the Goodwill High
School afhrmative, and as someone namely expressed it, uThe
negative had the fun of winning from Goodwill High School
and the affirmative, the pleasure of losing to Deering." In
the hrst instance Miss Ruth Shaw was tied for best speaker,
The college supplied punch and our vanquished debaters
tried to dispel, or rather to drown out the bitterness of their
defeat with it. Over their glasses they swore a solemn vow,
which ran something as follows: "Resolved, That, if next year
we compete in Bates Debating League, we shall endeavor
with every honorable resource at our command to give the
other teams a run for the cup, not soon to be forgottenf'

The department of music in Fryeburg Academy deserves
special notice this year because of its excellence and growth.
Mr. Herbert A. D. Hurd, the head .of this department, has
demonstrated his capability for handling any branch in music.
He studied music first under Mrs. Alberta Abbott, then at the
Nevv England Conservatory of Music. Before coming back
fe Fryeburg he taught at the Ricker Classical Institute, Houl-
ton, Maine. Mr. Hurd is a member of the American Guild of
Organists and has given over fifty recitals on the pipeorgan.
He is an able composer for both piano and organ, as his orig-
inal compositions testify.
The piano class of Fryeburg Academy consists of thirty-
one students, both boys and girls. VVe are glad to see some
ofthe boys in this class this year, as the class has consisted
of all girls for the past fevv years.
The Academy 'Chorus is an important part of the musical
department, more important, perhaps, than it has ever been
I . . . .
Jefore. At the prize speaking last year one critic proclaimed
it the best chorus of young voices he had ever heard and vve
are trying to make it even better this year. There are sixty-
eight voices in the chorus and they are divided into soprano,
alto, tenor, and bass divisions. Part singing has recently been
taken up and We are progressing very finely in this branch of

December 3, 1925, the Woman's Club of Brownfield in-
vited Mr. Hurd to bring a small chorus, selected from the en-
tire chorus, to assist in a program there. Mr. Hurd accepted
the invitation and went with his picked chorus of twenty-one
voices. We consider this a fine compliment paid to the Acad-
emy and one not soon to be forgotten.
On Sunday, January 31, 1926, the Academy orchestra and
chorus, under the direction of Mr. Hurd, gave a concert, the
first of a series of concerts that Mr. Hurd intended to give.
This was composed almost entirely of Christmas music, with
devotional exercises conducted by Rev. Edward Vtfild and
Rev. Louis Dole. Mr. Asa O. Pike and Mrs. Louise Dole lent
their valuable assistance and their rendering of the solo parts
was very fine.
Cn Sunday, February 28, 1926, Mr. Hurd gave his second
musical concert. The chorus and orchestra united in making
a very line entertainment under his direction. The boys' glee
club gave a few very interesting numbers, among which were
Nevin's "Rosary" and "Mighty Lak' a Rosef, A violin and

The musical department of Eryeburg Academy has be-
come a very important factor in the school life. Mr. Hurd's
inspiring work has, I am sure, succeeded in instilling a degree
of musical appreciation into the minds of the students which
may not be fully appreciated by them until later in life. For
we agree with Shakespeare when he says:
"The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
Is ht for treasons, stratagems and spoils."
A meeting of the piano class was called by our Director
of Music, H. D. Hurd, for the purpose of establishing a
permanent musical society in Eryeburg Academy, in honor of
Alberta Mabry Abbott. The following officers were elected:

Th? first game of the season was played with. Sanford
High School at Sanford. The game was very one-sided, due
to the inexperience of our players, -a few, of whom, had never
seen a football game. The Academy spirit was an encourag-

For the next engagement P. A. journeyed to Brewster

places there was as much as six inches of water. The gain
was hard fought, but we were no match for Brewster who had
a heavy and experienced team. 'fSteve" Andrews saved a
touchdown when he tackled Nelson, Brewsteris star haifback
with so much force that it knocked "Steve" unconscious. All
who witnessed that tackle agree that it was one of the best

The game was hard fought and was not won until the last
whistle blew. The game was clean and both teams showed
good sportsmanship. The Abbott boys surely had grit and
fighting blood. "Pete" Ballard was the feature of the en-
counter, running forty yards for the one and only touchdown.
Buzzell, Webb, and VVeston also played a wonderful game.
both on the defence and offense. The score was 6-0.

well organized team of experienced players. Our boys fought
hard and gave all they had in them and showed real sports-
manship, but Fryeburg was forced to play defensive during
most of the game. However, on one offensive play H. Ballard
made a gain of twenty-five yards on a play which completely

And last but not least was the big game with .Kennett
High. It was a clean, hard fought game andended in a glo-
rious victory. The largest crowd that ever witnessed a F. A.
contest watched this game. Twombly was Kennett's fore-
most star, while Fryeburg had many. "Phil,' VVebb played
his best game of the season making long gains through the
line, and played a wonderful defensive game. Don McKeen
made a name for himself in the fullback's position, both on
defense and offense. His plunges were something to be mar-
velled at. The line played a well organized game and but for
their holding Kennett for downs on our eight-yard line we
would never have won. Only for the timekeeper,s whistle
F. A. would have scored two more touchdowns, needing a
minute more to complete each.

The Fryeburg Academy basketball team was fortunate
this season in procuring the services of Mr. Harry McHugh
for a coach. Mr. McHugh had a fairly good-sized squad to
work with, but was greatly handicapped bv the inexperience
of the boys. However, the boys were willing scholars and
under "Macs, pleasing methods, they were soon in full swing.
The members of the team learned to like "Mac" very much
and a fine spirit existed between them. VVe are all proud of
the team Mr. McHugh turned out for us, and his work will
not soon be forgotten.

The Academy opened its Basketball season January first
by defeating the Alumni in a close game, 20-19. As the game
ended the alumni had one foul' to shoot, and if it had been made
the score might have been different. "Sam" Gray featured
for the Alumni, scoring thirteen of the nineteen points made,
while Weston was high point scorer for E. A.
The next game was played with the Portland Boys' Club
and resulted in the Hrst defeat witnessed in the new "Gym,"
The game was close for three-quarters, and then the Boys'
Club went wild and shot baskets from any position on the
floor, while our boys blew up. The score was 35-12.
The teams first trip was made to Bridgton Academy where
it was again defeated by a 30-10 score. The game was hard
fought and rough. Four players left the floor for personal

During the same week F. A. hung a defeat on Bartlett
High School to the tune of 30-23. The game was fast, clean,
and hard fought from the first whistle. Fryeburg took the lead
and did not lose it. Many of the spectators claim it to be the
best game played here this season. "Norm" Blake scored 13
of F. Als points. "Norm,' started in this game and went like
an old timer the rest of the season. "Phil" Webb played a
wonderful game on both offense and defense. '
The following game was played at Bridgton High School.
The game was forfeited to Bridgton, 2-O. The forfeiture was
due only to the incompetence of an official, and no hard feeling
between the schools or players arose.
Another game at Bridgton High School was played and
F. A. lost. by one point, 22-23. The game was glean and hard
fought with both teams evenly matched,

interestingly close and tied for the last time in the seventh
inning, lasting until the last of the ninth, when F. A. scored
the vvinning run, making the final score, 3-4.
VVe cannot let the only Kennett game of the season go
unmentioned. It was no victory to brag about, but it gave
the boys a chance to better their batting averages. The game
started in the afternoon, but had to be called off on account
of darkness. The score was 22-2.
This year the girls had a more successful season than ever
before. Qur success is due largely to the fact that we had
several experienced players, and also had a very efficient coach
in Miss Lowe.

Good sportsmanship was the feature of the game. Wihen the
last whistle blew the score was 33-17, favor of Fryeburg!
For our next game we traveled to North Bridgton in
"Casey's" truck to battle with Bridgton Academy. The game
was fast and vvell played, but We were unlucky and lost. 26-12.
Cn the evening of January 22. we met Kennett High in
our "gym" and defeated them, 13-9.
Qur next game was played in the afternoon of January 29.
Wfe played Bridgton Academy and showed them our heels to
the tune of 21-8.

particularly impressed by the clean playing and good sports-
manship of the Hiram girls.
