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 greatness. 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 Court should be one of diplomacy and association, but not THE ACADEMY BELL 8 .milatioll VVC should never forsake. the.World Court and assi of Nations, but we should not mix with other countries Leagufhin 50 unsafe and unstable. in anlymcoi Gave the World straightness, stability of purpose, sweep of poliicy, sweetness of character, and. sympathy, that was sane, strong, and sound, All these are given us, with the 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 divine. CLYDE JOHNSON, ,29. THE FRYEBURG AND KENNETT FOOTBALL GAME "Everyone come out and be sure to yell your loudest For our gallant football team, of them we are the proudest Of anyone around, those gallant glorious boys !" These words, November sixth, made us make a lot of noise. Captain Quinn is a prominent figure on the field, "Your side is the right, Stan, you never should yield !" Q "They are off! Give a cheer!

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 the bridge. 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 !" RU'l'IrI W.

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. adorned with a diamond stickpin. 'By curious contortions of the face Mr. Prim managed to keep an eyeglass stuck into his right optic. The visitor asked to be shown over the farm, so the First place Grandpa Twiddle-Dum took him was to the barn.

Qld Hguftglit' had been tied up for several days, conse- quently hg was feeling rather frisky. "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 overfiow f f ' . o water rom the trough at the top of the hill a short distance from the shed. Having jumped the f M ence, r.

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 THE ACADEMY BELL I4 ' tg ra .

Unable ii? asicertiin my direction, I soon found myself ill 21 large kitchen. That is, I looked in and saw a large kitchen, but I 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. followed by a third ghost. They passed by me and hurried up the next flight of stairs. evidently leading to the tower. Unconscious of what I was doing, I followed but upon mv 'ir rival at the head of the stairs all was quiet. ,Holy cats! 511 at olpcedthe whole hall seemed to light up. From somewhere in t e 1 t ' s ance a clock struck twelve. Gazing around to see where the light came from, I saw, standing just behind me, a skeleton.

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 fromf' They laughed with glee and the negro left the room, 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. GORDON T. HEARD, ,272 X X I Ei-QE. MEMOIR at 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 most dear. So our brave and sturdy athletes A Many contests light and win, s our shouts proclaimin vict'r g Y, 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.

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 Hllllion more things.

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! Wrhat would Jake say? I thought I'd appease him by givin' 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 that cat an' I guess she was scared of my hair, anyway she 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." MARCIA BERRY, '27. 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 THE Ag,4DEMY BELL 20 r inion. But there was one party of men chang1HblC?i5FEtt313Ilti11and take what was forced upon them. 251130 wisok the law into their own hands and attempted to do ese I . t. idation what thev could not do in political fields. Dy In lm . "0 d f 1 This group W 1 K1 h K K U Em- . . ordegnt Delayu 1865 3 few men of the younger set in Polaski, Tennessee finding life monotonous after the war, formed a secret club for the single purpose of amusement. They called themselves Kuklas Cthg Segretj, Secrecy and mystery were their main objects, secrecy in regard to the members, and 'of the place and objects of the meetings, and the mystery of dis- guise ancl parades in the moonlight, white masks, .tall card- board hats, white-sheeted figures and muffled hoofs of horses. It was the satisfaction of seeing the looks of terror they brought from the darkies, that put thoughts of mischief in their heacs. 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. Soon became impossible to keep these lawbreakers as the beginning of that now large an power u ltd angler hand. Mere rogues began imitating the gang and set- ACE PCTSOIEIEJ gfudges.

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 , which we are trying to save." Wfe are 'already seeing in America law of disunity through alienism: our our progress checked, our spirit scorned tion confused. The Klan, knowin the workings of the councils are divided, , our purpose as a na- g this believes that the whole tendency must be stopped, and that the control of the nation should return to and r lation. - emain in the hands of the white popu- Plain recognition of facts supports the Klan's o 't' A pposi ion 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 h 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.

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. ETHEL HALL, '26, O-H MAGGIE! MY MAGGIE!

Mr. Perry is a very interesting speaker and his talk will be long remembered by the students. uOn February. 12, -Dorothy T. Haley, '26, read her essay on The Dramatic Life of Abraham Lincoln."

The classes are held twice a week, a thorough physical examination has been given to nearly all the girls, and the work has proved to be very interesting. 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. , NILS Sonmzsrnom, '2G. 28 1,15 ACADEMY BELL SENIOR DRAMA f 1926 ave 3 very creditable performance of lCanTffXPeb2tSeSPsOclrama,g'iD3dClY Long Less," OH Mafsh 25f 6 The Jla was a marked success both from a dramatic a hnancialivievvpoint.

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 as alternate. 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. H l l 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' .

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 singing. The Glee Club is a branch of the chorus that deserves to be mentio d ' ' ne . It was an experiment this year and has proved a very successful one The cl l ' n . ua consists of eleven boys and 1 ' ' . is indeed surprising to note their Wonderful improvement since they started.

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 saxaphone duet by Edson Keefe and Delbert Bosworth, was an important part oi the program. ' Mr. Hurd is now making elaborate preparations for Na- tional Music Week, May 2-8, 1926, when there will be some musical event every day. The program will be as follows: CELEBRATION or NATIONAL MUs1C WEEK MAY 2-9, 1926 FRYEBURG, MAINE By Frycbmfg Academy and Fryebzwg Public Schools Under the Auspices of The Alberta Mabry Abbott Choral Society Directed by H.

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: President-Daphine Barker, Vice-President-Helen Baker. Secretary-Ethel Hall. Treasurer-Clyde Johnson. Librarian-Robert Littlefield. AccompanistsNDorothy Haley Ruth Sh , , aw. Director-H. A. D. Hurd, Chaplelinsslqev' Edwardivv- Wild, Rev. L. A. Dole.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The game was glean and hard fought with both teams evenly matched, The long hard ffip 'CO VVilton Academy proved fruitless our boys were whitewashed with a score like a call number, 04-18.

THE ACADEMY BELL 59 The best game of the season was with Bridgton Academy, played the afternoon of the Frye House fire. The game was 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. . GIRLS' BASKETBALL 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. The first game vvas in our "gym" with Porter High. 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. We visited Hiram, February 25, to play with Hiram High School. VVe vvon an easy game by a score of 30-10. Vlfe were particularly impressed by the clean playing and good sports- manship of the Hiram girls. VVe won over Bridgton High at Bridgton, February 16. by a score of 26-24. This was the most exciting game of the season. An overtime period was played and vve managed to come out two points ahead. D VVe closed a very successful season by visiting Kennett. Qur rivals vvon by a score of 32-16. Wfe have hopes of an even more successful season next vear.
