I hope others will enjoy reading a copy of this as much as I have enjoyed Working EDITOR-IN-CHIEF. THE VALUE OF A YEAR BOOK There has long been the custom of having in each high school or academy, a year book, published by the student body. Is this not a fitting "wind-up" for the school year? When the book is published, it contains articles which show the parents and the pupils themselves the ability of the individual student. The editing of the paper gives the editorial .board an experience in handling business matters in an orderly manner. Through exchanges with other schools, the name of Fryeburg is more widely spread, and the social and athletic activities recognized. The Alumni and undergraduates know the progress of the school through the year book. The separate depart- ments give in summary form the work accomplished during the different semesters. The paper holds the interest of the student of today as well as proves valuable in years to come. What student does not, at some time or other, wish to glance back over his school life? It means extra time and money put in by a few, but, after all, is it not worth it? THE EDITORS. for its success. COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT The Commercial Department has progressed rapidly under the supervision of Miss Smart. Some of the girls have earned awards for typing a certain number of words per minute for fifteen minutes with only five errors. The following girls have received awards this year: UNDERWOOD ROYAL Rate per Rate per minute minute Leah Mclntire 40 Nettie Keefe 53 fBronze Pin! fGold Pinl Nettie Keefe 40 Mary Lothrop 31 iBronze Pinj Herlene Seavey 38 THE ACADEMY BELL' 5 EXPERIENCE COUNTS A three-place biplane was given John Palmer for his birthday. He had for an instructor, Henry Shultz, a vet- eran pilot of the war. Soon afterward the instruction began. When John had been flying for a week, he decided to take off on his first solo without the consent of his in- structor. One night at dusk when all had left the flying field, John thought it a good time for his solo. When the motor had been warmed up and everything was in readiness, he took 05. Up and up he went, on and on into the darkness until he had attained a 5,000 foot altitude. There he was flying, blind, having no idea in which direction he was flying. Without a moment's notice the engine kicked a few times and went dead-out of gas. There was an inexperienced pilot diving toward the earth, turning over these words in his mind, "Experience Counts? WILLIAM FORCE, '32. ANNUAL REPORT OF THE FRYEBURG LIBRARY The library which was added at the .beginning of the school year has proved a great success. It is not a new idea because at one time there was a Webster Memorial Library. As many of the books as possible from the Webster Library have been collected together. The present collection consists of about twelve hundred books. Some of these were scattered in various classrooms, but are now assembled in the new library. A committee under the direction of Mrs. Lougee solicited a great many books besides the money to buy reference material. From time to time throughout the year, books have been given from the private shelves of various friends of the Academy. The library has been able to secure during the year a great many reference books on United States History, European History, and Ancient History. There are some shelves set aside for Latin and French reference books. There is also a good collection of fbiographies, poetry, and fiction. Many works of standard authors are available. There are complete sets of Stevenson and Shakespeare. If the good work progresses proportionately in years to come, Fryeburg Academy will have one of the best school libraries in the vicinity. Before I close I wish to express my sincere thanks to Mrs. Lougee and the committee in her charge, Clarence Mulford, Mr. Hastings, Miss Mary Barrows, and many others who have helped to make the library a success.

Between hockey and basketball seasons came numerous "bouts" with classmates, which helped keep her in trim. Underneath this playful, pugilistic attitude, however, is a good supply of loyalty and sportsmanship. We know her ability to make friends will help her next year in Normal School.

From Hiram High School came Clemons. When we first saw "Clem" we thought we were going to have a rather quiet lad added to our list. However, those who know "Clem" very well realize that the basis of many funny in- cidences come from Clemons' quick wit and joyous nature. In Clemons we found a good, clean fellow and a friend to all. We certainly wish you luck in the future "Clem."

HAROLD CHARLES GAIN "Gu'i1'mie" COMMERCIAL COURSE Born April 23, 1912 Fryeburg Center, Maine Commercial Club 3, 4: Track 1, 2: School Circus 1, 3. "Gu1nn1e" has been with us at F.

"Norm" as Class Treasurer for four years has indeed performed his duty well. It takes "slow, but sure" work to make a class keep its dues paid, and that's just how "Norm" works. May luck be with you next year, "Norm," JAMES ERNEST GUPTILL "Jimmy" COLLEGE COURSE Born August 13, 1912 Fryeburg, Maine Commercial Club 3: French Club 2, 3, 4: Latin Club 1, 2, 3, 4: Prize Speaking 3: Football Squad 2: Varsity 3, 4: Track 1, 2, 3, 4: School Circus 1, 3: Latin Play 3 French Pla 3' B ' ' 3 y , ELL Board, Assistant Editor 3, Honor Student: Class Part-Class History.

"Bus" may appear rather slow or quiet at times, but his work on the Football squad and with the "Star" basketball team proves his good sportsmanship. We became known to his writing ability when he won the Chemistry Prize. May we wish you luck, "Bus," in what- ever you attempt next year.

One day one of the ladies were going up the street the road was kind of slippy and she fell down, and it made me laugh. We hed a good basket ball team they played brown- field before the game was ended I said that fryeburg would win I told one that I woud bet with him if I gain or loose I gained and then he was mad and said that he woud not pay me and I said that I hed a good muscule and I could take it out of his hide he decided to pay me. and that ended that.

BIMILLENNIUM VIRGILIANUM Publius Virgilius Maro, the greatest of the Roman poets, was born at Mantua in 70 B. C. The most noted and best remembered of all of his works is the "Aeneid." 1930 is the year of the Bimillenium Virgilianum, The world is observing this anniversary through their schools, that have found many ways in which to bring to it the attention of the public. The Virgil exhilbits includ.e class notebooks, posters, clay models, drawings, and objects 16 THE ACADEMY BELL of any kind that represent Virgil's topics or characters. Pageants, processions, or tableaux, which present Virgilian scenes, are to be given by many of the schools. Some insti- tutions are dramatizing one-act plays based on Virgil and his writings. The New York Browning Society is paying its homage to Virgil in a series of Virgilian Mornings, the last Thurs- day of every month. The city libraries and museums are doing work of great value for this celebration. The Public Library of New York will open an exhibit of Virgiliana some time in May. It will include such remarkable books dealing with Virgil, such as those which are now in the library of Princeton University. t A There is planned for this summer, two Virgilian Cruises. One starts at Marseilles, France, the other at Naples, Italy. These cruises touch the places Virgil's hero Aeneas visited on his journey from Troy to Italy. ' BERTHA RoGERs, '30. WHAT WOULD A GENTLEMAN DO? Dick was off on the train for the big dance that his fraternity was giving that night. It was the end of the football season and Richard Trenton, Boxford's football captain, was to be the guest of honor. Although the ball was supposed to be a masquerade, Dick had decided to wear his dress suit. On boarding the train, Dick carelessly threw his suit- case on the rack above his seat and settled down for the fifty mile journey. In the seat in front of him sat a young girl about his own age. Dick said to himself, "Gee! That girl looks like the one that Ted is inviting up to the dance, and, come to think of it, he said that she would probably come on the same train." Dick started to speak to her, but hesitated thinking, "What if that shouldn't be the girl?" After debating a few minutes, he decided to wait until night and see if it really was Banbara Rich, Ted's friend. The fifty miles were at an end, and the train had stopped. Dick reached for his suitcase and left the car. As he neared the steps, he looked back and saw that the girl who had sat in front of him was also preparing to get off the train. j Upon leaving the car, Dick, just for curiosity's sake, waited outside to see where the girl went. Soon a taxi drove THE ACADEMY BELL 17 up and the young lady stepped in. Dick listened and, sure enough, he heard her say, "Boxford College, please." "I guess that was Miss Rich after all," said Dick. Well, he would find out for sure tonight anyway. So, hailing a taxi, he made his way to his fraternity house. Upon arriving, he was heartily greeted by his friends who met him with shouts and cheers. After talking with the boys a few minutes, he left for his room as it was late and it would soon be time for the dance. Dick stepped into his room, closed the door and opened his suitcase. The first thing that met his gaze was a lovely peach taffeta evening dress, from under which peeped a pair of silver pumps. Dick stood back in amaze- ment. What did this all mean? Was it a trick that the boys had played on him, iinding that he was not going to masquerade? Then the solution came to him. In his haste in leaving the train, he had picked. the wrong suitcase from the rack. What should he do? Even if this suitcase did belong to Barbara Rich, there was no time to locate her, for it was now eight-thirty and besides, he would not know where to look for her. He sat down on his bed and tried to think. Suddenly an idea popped into his head. He jumped up, hurried off his traveling clothes, and made an attempt to put on the lovely taffeta dress. After trying half an hour, Dick stood before his long mirror, beautifully attired in the contents of the suitcase, which were suitable for the occasion. He had even managed to squeeze his feet into the silver pumps, although he had his doubts as to their lasting through the evening. But he lacked one thing. It was the lovely head of ,black wavy hair of Barbara Rich. Here was another problem, but leave it to Dick. It was late, but what did a half hour matter with this joke up his sleeve. Slipping on his top coat, he stepped quietly out of his room and hurried to a hairdresser's shop, only a short distance from the fraternity house. The elderly lady who owned the shop was a friend of Dick's mother and had also been a friend of Dick's all four years at college. As Dick excitedly blurted out his problem, an amused expression spread over the old lady's face, and when Dick had finished, she left the room. In a few minutes she returned with a wavy black Wig. "Now Dick," said Mrs. Wilson, "if you will be very careful of this, you may take it for the evening." Kissing the old lady on the forehead, he grabbed the wig and was gone. Meanwhile, in her room, Barbara Rich was also con- fronted with a problem. Upon opening her suitcase, she found that it was not hers, for it contained a dress suit. Barbara had always been a good sport and now she had a 18 THE ACADEMY BELL good chance to show her sportsmanship. Instead of bor- rowing an evening dress from a girl friend, she hurried into the dress suit. It was a little large, but after a short struggle, she faced, in the mirror, a fine looking gentleman. But what was she to do with her hair? This problem did not perplex her long. From a friend she borrowed a man's tall silk hat and a little mask to cover her eyes. With a box of hair pins, she pulled all of her hair upon the top of her head and pinned it. Then she put on her mask and tall hat. After giving herself the "once over" in the mirror, Barbara made her way to the ball room. Upon arriving, she found the dance in full progress. As she stepped into the hall, she heard the shout from the crowd, "Dick is here." They were looking straight at her. Who was Dick? Then she remembered seeing on the suitcase that she had mistaken for hers, the letters, "DICK," She thought over all the possible "Dicks," but finally decided that the owner must be Dick Trenton, Box- ford's football captain. Ted had told her that he might be on the same train with her. She had noticed a tall, hand- some young fellow in the seat behind her, but not knowing young Trenton very well, did not recognize him. The gang was hurrying toward her. What should she do? Could she play the game and not let them know who she really was? She was greeted with great excitement by all of the fellows, but when they offered to take her hat she politely shook her head and stepped into the ball room with it on, a proceeding which looked very queer indeed. The fellows tried to talk to her, but received no answer. Finally, Ted shouted, "Well, Dick, what's the big idea, donit you suppose we know who you are?" He also added, a little more excitedly, "Have you seen anything of Barbara? She has not arrived yet. I am afraid something has happened." Just then a gentle- man outside announced that Miss Rich had arrived. Ted quickly left and ran to greet her. But as he shook her hand and looked down into her eyes, he drew back in amazement. "Dick," he blurted out. "Sh, sh," whispered Dick, "dont let the gang know yet." The warning came too late. The fellows had heard Ted's exclamation and they now rushed to the place where the two were standing. It was a good joke enjoyed by Barbara and Dick, no less than by the others. But what could have been more appropriate as they danced the next fox trot together, than the selection played by the orchestra, "What Would a Gentleman Do ?" HERLENE SEAVEY, '32, THE ACADEMY BELL THE VARSITY FISHERMAN ON BANK DUTY ' 'EXCITEMENT IN CAMP' ' 20 THE ACADEMY BELL HALLOWED GROUND One of the most solemn moments in the history of the world took place in the Allied trenches November 11, at 11 o'clock-the coming of peace. This great silence replaced, the thunder of cannons and machine guns, that had been heard so many terrible years. Silence-peace-ending the bloodiest war that the world has ever known, a war to which all nations of the earth sent their best young men to facie death. Thousands of America's sons are still in France, resting in fields that will long bear marks of the terrible contests in which so many lives were cast away. Nature has done much in these battle fields to make men forget the awful turmoil of only a few years ago. She has grown plants and wild flowers, trying to hide the places where human beings fell by the thousands, bathed in blood. Yet, among all these fiowers and foliage, grim reminders often are seen as one passes along this sacred ground. Wire entanglements slowly rusting away, dugouts, guns, still in firing position, untouched. Here and there stand white crosses, unnamed. It has been impossible to mark every resting place, and they lie, unknown soldiers, by the tens of thousands in Belleau Wood and. Chateau-Thierry. In the northern part of Belleau Wood one may see many field guns in firing position, just as they were taken by the Americans in 1918g then in advance of those, a line of German machine guns, just as they were eleven years ago. Now, surrounded -by beautiful leaves, they are a picturesque sight as they hold the positions, their rattling hail of death stilled forever. Beyond these machine guns, nearly hidden by ferns and fir trees, is an Australian 88 millimeter gun, a symbol of the war gods, yet no longer throwing out its high velocity shells, but constituting a permanent memorial. Along the south front of the St. Michiel, the Germans constructed an elaborate barbed-wire defence to help pro- tect deep trenches just behind it all. Today the entangle- ment of wire is still there, intermingled with flowers of every description, it is a picture of grim struggle mingled with nature's beauty, a reminder of what has been there. One could hardly believe that, in truth, 200,000 gas shells had fallen in a single night in that area, or that 400,000 Germans had sacrificed their lives to hold the section just beyond, namely, Fort Danaumont, now a beautiful monu- ment, surrounded by the white crosses of 100,000 unknown heroes who .barred the way to Verdun. Here may be seen one of the most heart-breaking scenes of all this sacred ground. We see one rifle barrel appearing above the ground, a little farther another, then another, bayonets in THE ACADEMY BELL 21 place, the "Trench of Bayonetsn protected by the American memorial. "Men of the 137th Infantry had been ordered to hold this trench at any cost. They were standing in it, rifles in hand, when a discharge from the enemy upset the works and buried the occupants alive." The bayonets still stand above the earth, grim reminders of the tragic fate of the men holding them. It reminds me of "Little Boy Blue" in which the little tin soldier is waiting endlessly. The largest overseas cemetery, at Romagne-Sous-Mont- jaucon, contains 14,000 little white crosses in perfect rows, four marble monuments on either corner, and, a beautiful drive enclosing it all. The soldiers there represent every division of the American Legion. As we look over these graves of the best young men of our nation, a surge of blood rushes through us and we hope for better understanding and everlasting peace between nations: we hope that these men have not died in vain, but have made the world safe, so that never again the bugle will be heard at the front, so that never again the words "Cease firing" will ring out, and so that never again such grim spectacles as these which are left will remind humanity of such needless sacrifice. ELLSWORTH B. LAWRENCE, '30. MYSTERIES OF HOBBIES AND HABITS Everywhere there are people who have peculiar hobbies or habits. Business men, after a hot, hard day in the oflice, feel the necessity of the form of recreation which is most pleasing to them, therefore, they may visit the golf links, attend the theater, pick up some light fiction, or even work in a small garden after supper. Such hobbies are easily understood and truly helpful to the ones who enjoy them, but those which are originated in, around, or by dor- mitory life are far less comprehensible, I am sure. For example, why does a person like to go fishing in the most muddy season of the year, when it is certain the car will get stuck in the mud? Garage men are not always available on immediate call. Can there be some d.elight, unknown to most of us, in waiting on a lonely, country road, knee-deep in slimy mud, until a certain party fexpected or not ?J comes to the rescue? I know not, so will leave the explanation to a person better informed than I. To me the gum-chewing habit, too, still remains among the unsolved mysteries of life. The practice is all right once in a while and one stick at a time, but it has ceased to be limited to that. Those who take up this form of "side 22 THE ACADEMY BELL line" become rivals for first place in the number of sticks they can chew at one time and the size of the bubbles they are able to blow. What ideals for virtue! If you have ever watched a group of people dancing perhaps you, too, have thought of how absurd it is to get up and take idiotic side steps, whirls, and dips, keeping in time with weird sounding music. Nevertheless, thousands do it every day and consider themselves as sane as neces- sary. There are other habits, such as collecting souvenirs, assigning new words to old tunes, holding afternoon teas, and sitting around a card table for hours at a time, which are too numerous to, mention. If you try to inquire as to why a certain person does or likes such things, the answer is always the same, "Oh, everyone else likes them, so I do," and you turn away still unsatisfied and without any solu- tion. ELIZABETH RUNDLETT, '30. ' LETTERS The postman with his letters has many effects on dif- ferent people. When he gives a mother a letter from her daughter, she is very happy. When a father receives a letter from his son, he is generally worried lest he ask for more money. Bills! The postman gives those to everyone and, of course, they don't bring much pleasure. To the person in love, I suppose, it gives a moment of happy thrills. What it means to a boy or girl away from home to receive a nice letter from "Dad" with a check enclosed! Imagine the feelings of a person who is ready to go to some big party and at the last moment has a letter come saying they're sorry but the shoes of that size are not in stock, at the present. To some, a letter is a letter, and they are glad of almost any kind. MARION BARKER, '32. A PLEASANT TRIP One fine morning last September it was decided that the "Dorm" girls, who wished to, and several teachers, climb Mount Chocorua. We started about eight A. M., with Mr. LaCasce and Miss Fifield as chauffeurs. Among those who went were, "Mister," Miss Fifield, Miss Johnny, "Cherub" Chase, Eleanor Frye, June Upton, Norma Stuart, and I. THE ACADEMY BELL 23 When we reached the foot of the mountain "Mister" filled his knap-sack with apples and other food. We then started our climb. We were two hours reaching the topg we stopped many times for the Piper Trail was hard climbing. "Mister" and June kept the lead most of the time. As we walked we could see the top of the mountain at one side, it seemed as though we would never get there in such a round-about way. Before we had quite reached the summit it was about eleven. We were all hungry, so we ate our dinner of frank- forts, sandwiches, cake, cookies, and apples. The wind was blowing and it was rather cold, but we enjoyed our dinner. When we were through eating we continued to the top. From here we could see rivers, mountains, lakes and vil- lages. We looked around all we wished to, then "Mister" suggested we go to the football game at Wolfeboro f between Fryeburg and Brewster Academyj. We took a very different trail, the Weetamoo, coming down. It was much steeper than the one by which we went up. I fell down twice and my toes were covered with blisters g just the same I followed the others as best I could. We arrived at the foot of the mountain about two-thirty P. M. Then we started toward Brewster. Before we got there a large white cat ran across the road in front of us. Some one said we must be going to win. A black cat means bad luck, so the white one must mean good fortune. We did win, thirteen to six. As soon as the game was over we started home. It was growing dark, and it seemed as if we would never reach Fryeburg. Finally, "Mister" sug- gested if I didn't keep still he'd have to put a hot potato into my mouth. This frightened me so I tried to be more quiet. We got home at 6 P. M., very tired and hungry. In spite of this, I am sure we all enjoyed our trip very much. ELSIE SMITH, '33. THE CITY OF CARCASSONNE In the western part of France lies a famous old city called Carcassonne. While visiting the country we stumbled over this unique little place and took a great interest in it On first appearance, we were struck by the grand and severe aspect of those brown towers, so varied in dimen- sions, silhouetted in the sky. Below these lies a wall sur- rounding this city. It stands about sixty or seventy feet high, and is at least twelve feet in thickness. Around the 24 T HE ACADEMY BELL wall is 'a deep moat which at one time was filled with water for protection. On the eastern side opens the chief en- trance, which is the only one accessible to carting. It is defended by a barbican supplied with loop-holes and battle- ments with a watch. The entrance is slanted, so as to mask the gate of the chief work. On the outward side the two huge towers, between which the gate opens, are reinforced by a sort of buttress used in olden days to keep off the besiegers from the most assailable point. Protection was the prime factor when this city was built. This fact is more noticeable than anything else when one is looking it over. In the southwest corner, inside the walls is a chapel, named St. Nazaire, a most beautiful building of its kind. Throughout the inside of the city are small houses or huts in which the inhabitants used to live. The thing that struck me most forcibly when visiting this city was the lack of any tourists which would usually infest a place like this. It was only by luck that we stumbled over it. The train we were on was held up for some reason and we learned from a peasant that a good way to pass the time away would be to look over this unknown city which was still inhabited by poor peasants. Incidentally we were so interested in the city that we forgot all about our train and had to stay overnight to wait for the next one. Ross BURTON, '30.

MY BOOKS Oh, where would I be without my books! Wouldn't it be terrible to come home nights with no studying to do, no themes to write, and no Latin to translate? I should really be in a terrible predicament. What if some one should call up and suggest going to a dance? I couldn't refuse for I should have no excuse and how I would rave, "Oh my books! How I miss my books !" If there were no dance, I might be drawn into a pool game. I should wander about the table tearing my hair at the noise and excitement, wishing for my books and a calm, peaceful evening at home with the wonderful com- panionship of Virgil or, perhaps, Maria Chapdelaine. If there were no dance or pool game I might be per- suaded to go to the movies, although I detest those talkies! How they do bother mel There is no rest in the movie halls of today. How can anyone even compare a movie with a pleasant hour of study? Modern movies are a cheap sort of story compared to the old Roman Classics. If there were a basketball game I'd. have to go. I should sit on the bleacher, nearly wild with the noise of the cheering and pray and pray for the end of the game, not caring which side won. The last resort would be to go to bed. I can hardly imagine an evening spent in such a way. Just think how terrible it would be, to lie in bed and dream of the pleasant evenings I had spent with my books and wish for even one of them.

Perhaps some of you may even have experienced the same difliculties. The first step is to select a rather plain piece of writing paper, that "the folks at home" may not criticize your spending money foolishly on envelopes with fancy linings. However, if your parents are Scotch, a gay plaid lining in the envelope might be received with smiles of appreciation. Next, you write the heading, slowly, though, to give you more time to think of a proper opening sentence. With pen poised in mid-air you decide that topics of the weather have no direct connection with money, so might be used to avert the inevitable suspicion. The weather has been fair, so that discussion occupies no great space before being exhausted. Now, must the money question be brought up-the thoughts of it give you a nervous feeling which is mistaken for hunger. That makes you think of mother's cooking and -well, why not kill two birds with one stone and mention, that since the food here has not been very good lately, you would not mind getting a box from home? To make this hint more effective you flatter the lady of the house and fervently remark that you have not tasted any pie as good as hers since you were home on your last vacation. Secretly satisfied and elated by your ability to compli- ment and flatter, you now feel that there is nothing about which you are afraid to write. Encouraged by this feeling, you begin to write boldly, "Say, isn't it about time you sent me some more money?" The words stare you in the face! They are written, though, and you can not erase them. Such audacity must be at least partially remedied, so you make some joke about it, and spend the next half hour telling about all the basketball games, good movies, and dances there have been to go to, and end by explaining, also, that roommates frequently have the habit of using up your toothpaste or hair tonic. You believe that, of course, the family will realize that all this takes money, and you close the letter feeling re- lieved that the deed is done. The great task of writing home is over once more. ELIZABETH RUNDLETT, '30, THE ACADEMY BELL 27 THE BRIEF LIFE OF A SATIN SLIPPER I, a pink satin slipper, had only the night before been set in the redecorated window of an exclusive Fifth Avenue shop. I had been placed on the foot of a wax model. I remained there until late the following day when a lady chanced to pass and stop for a moment to admire me. A little while later I was taken from the model and tried on by the lady who had admired me in the window. I heard her give the address, H25 East Forty-Sixth Street, Suite 7." I little knew at the time of my arrival what would be my fate. My new owner had already changed her costume and was wearing a gown of pink. I soon realized that I was on the foot of a living person and not a waxen one. Stepping from a limousine I was escorted to a pier, and then up a gang plank to a seemingly large ship which proved to be only a yacht, where a gay party of people had gathered, Dancing started immediately upon our arrival, and at once I was crushed unmercifully by my mistress' escortg for the first time my attention was turned to him who appeared to be host of the affair. Cocktails were served continuously, and this I figured was the cause of my being trodden upon. From the comments I learned that we were well outside of the harbor. My owner begged her escort to take her to the deck Where, after seating herself in a deck chair, she removed me from her foot which had become blistered. I grieved, real- izing I had caused her so much pain. She held me in her hand for a moment, and for no reason at all, he who was with her, grabbed me from her and hurled me overboard. I heard a shriek, but it was too late. All night I floated and the next morning I found myself beneath a wharf, floating with "a broken toy horse, a bit of a letter, a dirty white glove-" other things which had been tossed out of people's lives.

This is a question that is often asked. In order to reach a satisfactory con- clusion we must ask ourselves another question. What is our attitude toward poetry? Is it a lboresome subject forced upon us by our teachers, or is it a meaningless jumble of words, the rhythm of which strikes pleasantly on our ears? Possibly it is a song, the verses of which bring a thrill other- wise found in life itself. Poetry is another form of life. The verses of Keats, Shelley, and Goldsmith portray pic- tures of life. To the average student poetry is a necessary evil which has to be endured. . The first mentioned attitude is the characteristic of the average high school student. Let us try to discover why this view persists. I believe that the trouble may spring from two causes: first, the student is afraid of being con- sidered effeminate by his classmates, second, he has not read enough to find the type of poetry that appeals to him. Few boys today find a great deal of pleasure in the poetry of Walt Whitman. What boy, however, can read Kipling's poetry without being thrilled? The poems taught in the schools today comprise such a variety that everyone should find something of interest among them. "The Ancient Mariner," "Sohrab and Rus- tum," and "The Lady of the Lake" are a few of the pieces of poetry read. What more could fbe asked? Adventure, love, hate, war, peace and sensational things all may be found in the books just named. What then is the trouble? If it does not lie in books, not in teachers, "despite the arguments I hear advanced by our sterling teachers," not in the pupil, where must we look? To me the answer is simple. As I see it, poetry is not a study, but an emotion. One cannot be taught emotions. He either has them or has not. F.

We get our hopes up, now and then For a lesson, short and sweet. Lo and behold! When she gives it out In length it can't be beat. If we should all have our lesson done This is what Miss Johnson would say, "I know that this is too good to be true They'll be terrible the following day." But I must do my next day's work Or the class' reputation, I'll kill, And you'd read tomorrow, in this poem A chapter, sadder still. MARION BARKER, '32 PARODY ON "THE OLD OAKEN BUCKET" How clear in my mind are the pranks of my boyhood When I was a kid and just starting to grow. The strings in my pockets, the fish hooks and matches, The bruises and cuts and the bandaged-up toe, The crows and the blue jays and chattering squirrels. The sling shots and arrows I used for a gun. The switching I got when I brought down a victim That old tingling switch! Say, it wasn't much fun. JAMES W. MERRILL, '30 THE ACADEMY BELL A SCHOOL INCIDENT School had begun at the usual time, Each student in his homeroom seat, When in came Stearns and a little behind Came Bussell with noiseless feet. Now," said Miss Piper with an angry look, "You boys are two minutes late." "I couldn't help it," was Bussell's reply, "I have to keep my dates." So into the oflice poor "Buzzy" was sent, He knew that his time had come If you have ever been sent in for that, You know that it is no fun. "Mister's" face was very stern As he said, "Will you please sit down? And "Buzzy" nearly had heart failure n When he said, "Have you been down town?' "Yes, I have, but I hurried right back, And came right up to the 'Dorm,' But when I looked for the other boys, I found that they all had gone." "Now, Bussell," says "Mister" with a smile on his face, "I know that isn't so, For I saw you myself walking with a girl Up the street twenty minutes ago." Finally "Buzzy" spoke up and said "May I go to my classes now?" "Yes," he replied, "But remember this, To lie, you have to know how."

L1NwooD SEAVEY. HOCKEY, '29 A group of girls in hockey suits, Each holding a hockey stick, Were earnestly discussing , Their next game with Berwick. "We've simply got to win itg That game we cannot lose." Then came the Coach's voice, "Come, play," So off they ran in twos. They practiced long and faithfullyg They batted the ball around: Sometimes they hit the ball, Sometimes they hit the ground. In either case, the game they won, They played it fair and square. "Fryeburg Academy, we are fromg We learned our hockey there." AUDREY PENDEXTER, '31. THIS WISH This life is like a candle in the windy Each day left open to realize a dream. 0 Wind, I only ask that you be kind, And let me leave behind, Within the arms of this dark night, A tiny flame and, too, a beacon light. O Wind, I only ask that you may see This wish that lies within the soul of meg And make me understand in future years My ecstasies and all my days of tears. Be kind, O Wind, and let my dream burn high, For if it's quenched my soul then- it will die. I ANON THE ACADEMY BELL DELY'S FORD Bill Dely has a Ford you know That was built in '76 It has four wheels, a steering gear And an engine full of kicks. The body's painted orange, The fenders are of black, It has one head light on the front And a tail light on the back. The tires are made of rubber But they feel just like a brick, And you can never crank the engine Without getting a good big kick. The folding windshield's automatic: It is held up by some wires, And when the wind hits it too hard The windshield just retires. All four wheels are always "tired" The "go juice" mostly gone, And until the engine starts You can not blow the horn. A hot shot runs the tail light A "big shot" drives the car. The 'engine runs on turpentine And is greased the most by tar. DAVEY FORCE, '32 THE SOPHOMORE PEST "Billy" Force is a sophomore boy, And what a pest he is, He loves to tease the little girls, And fill their eyes with tears. He sneaks behind you with stealthy tread, And takes your books away, Then he says, "Mary, Whistle! Whistle!" If I don't have to pay. Then he keeps them under his arm, Till finally he gives in, After I whistle and whistle hard, Then he gives them to me with a grin. MARY SAMPSON, '32 THE ACADEMY BELL MY CAR Taken from "Trees," by Serg. Joyce Kilmer I think that I shall never see A car that's good enough for me. A car that when the gas I press Can get the lead on all the restg A car that smoothly runs all day, And doesn't take most all my payg When on a good road it can tear And leave the cops far in the rear 3 That is the kind of a car for me But where to get it I can't see. ELMER BUSSELL DREAMING In the evening when it's lonely And I've nothing else to do, I sit beside the fireplace And dream, my dear, of you. I think of all the happy times, And things we used to do When you and I were lovers Way back in Waterloo. And always when I sit and gaze Into the dancing flame, My heart cries out to you, dear And I wish you back again. Suppose some day that I should find you, Would you come back to me, And be the same old darling That you always used to be? MIRIAM CHASE, '32 CAESAR I cannot do my Latin 'Although I try and try. And times it seems quite certain That I should have to cry. THE ACADEMY BELL Miss Johnson gets so awful cross If we don't get constructions, And yet you cannot blame the boss Who has to give instructions.

THE ALUMNI HALL SONG We're all Alumni Hall girls, There's not a better crowd, Than the ones that stay in our "dorm," Even though we do seem loud. We try our best to do right, Even though 'tis hard, And the younger girls that don't know, We always try our best to guard. Once in a while we slip up, And naughty girls we get, But it isn't very long, folks, That we stay that way you bet! The teachers always find out, The worst that we can do, Then they put us all on campus, For about a week or two. fTo the tune of, "Hit the Line for Fryeburguj AN ALUMNI HALL GIRL. AN EVENING IN APRIL Sitting by an open window in evening, Comes the sound of frogs peeking And the soft roar of the wind As it goes through the trees seeking.

ELMA CLEMONS, '32 36 THE ACADEMY BELL THE DIFFERENCE O trees, last autumn It gave me great joy To walk beneath your foliage 3 Your shade was cool And your color refreshing, I watched your leaves Turn from red to yellow, I would lie for hours In the green hollow Among you. Then winter came, I went to you No more for consolation. I stayed by the hearth and fire Where I might find red and yellow That would warm me. There was nothing for you to oifer, Your color had gone, And you were left forlorn. A month went by And I saw no more of you. Now spring has comeg And an eager urge falls upon me To go to the understanding hills And the hollow to find you. You will have something to give me And so I want you .... ......... ....... ANON. THRILLS To some it's the thrill of the hunt and the chaseg The call to the hounds or the fear of the wreck That starts their hearts thumping, that makes their blood race To others it's speed, it is death's telling pace That raises the hair on the nape of the neck. But to me it's the swoop, it's the dive, the incline Of a trim little plane when unloosed from the earth. It's the roar of the motor, the struts with their whine - That thrills in my blood and' blots from my mind The thought of my home, and the love of my hearth. WILLIAM J. DELY, '31, THE ACADEMY BELL WHAT WOULD YOU DO? Across the street, in the boys' "dorm," Sat "Matt," very troubled and grieved, Perhaps he had reasons to be that way As he seemed very cross and peeved. "I can't understand," he said to himself, "Why Audrey always wants her wayg Last night when I went to see her, She told me that I couldn't stay." I asked her why, and began to get sore, fBut you know how Audrey willj And before I had time to say any more, She said she was going with "Bill." "You know, 'Matt,"' she said as she stamped her foot, "That if you had a car like his, I would go with you tonight, But I can't now-you see how 'tis." Suddenly "Matt" jumped up and said, With vengeance in his eyes, "I'll get an aeroplane and then You just watch the other guys." Next year, when "Matt" came back, He came in a little "R-E-D" plane, Do you think you know the results? They say he has changed her name. MARY SAMPSON, '32 THE RESCUE Over the widespreading forest A small black speck grew large, With motor roaring steadily, Although 'twas only a barge. That plane flew steadily higher Until all that was left to View Was a small pinprick of sunlight On a silver wing, gleaming new. Yesterday morning a mail plane, But now in search of a crew Which was lost in the year's worst stormg Where, no others ever knew. THE ACADEMY BELL Last night in that mass of darkness The compass of this ship stopped work. Her course was left undirected, Until o'er the lights of Twin Fork. Slowly the plane lost altitude And, as the pilot set her down He breathed a prayer of gratitude To Him who had guided him to this town. Next morn the door was fastened, There were in the cabin three men. Then to the east they hastened Back into civil ken. Next day in all the papers Pictures of three men appeared. And a story of the rescue From a village long-lost and drear. FRANCIS SHAW, '32 THE ACADEMY BELL 39 m If-IU--1141 Q W ti OPENING OF SCHOOL September 16-School opened starting Fryeburg Academy on its one hundred and thirty-eighth year. The student body numbered 147. There were two new mem- bers added to the teaching staff, Miss Frances Nason and Miss Mildred Fifield. FRESHMAN SOCIAL September 27-The Freshman Social was held in the Gibson Gymnasium. The Junior class spent much time and careful preparation for the event. The Freshmen, though green and bashful, performed as directed, causing the spec- tators many a hearty laugh. The remainder of the evening was spent in dancing. 40 THE ACADEMY BELL HOCKEY AND FOOTBALL SEASON September 23--Hockey season opened with practice on Monday. There was a good number present to try out for positions on the team. As there were only three Seniors left from the team of the year before, there was much new material to choose from. Under the supervision of Miss Fifield the team progressed rapidly. At this same time the football squad was Well under Way in practice. Coach Anketell "with his keen eye for good players" had already, in mind, picked out the first team. The girls' first hockey game was called at Bridgton, Friday, October 4. The game came out a tie of 1 to 1, showing well matched teams. The boys' first game was at Cheverus, October 28. FOOTBALL BANQUET November 15-The annual football banquet was held at the Vestry on Friday evening. The event was a marked success, due to the fine work of the Senior girls who were aided by Mrs. A. O. Pike, Mrs. Marston and Mr. and Mrs. Peterson. The tables were very attractively decorated in the school colors. The football men's table had candle sticks as goal posts, and was marked off into ten yard lines by strips of blue crepe paper. The place cards were small imitation footballs, on which each name was printed. Mr. LaCasce acted as toastmaster and called upon dif- ferent members of the football team to speak. The speeches were followed by school songs and cheers. Directly after the banquet, the evening's affair was con- tinued at the gymnasium, where a dance, open to the public, was enjoyed. HONOR STUDENTS April 18-Rank cards were given out. The honor students were as follows: Stanley Brewer, Eleanor Chase, Maxine Clemons, Gordon Cutler, Marion Gilman, A. O. Pike, Jr., Elizabeth Rundlett, Zelma Abbott, Edmund Brown, Vivian Clemons, Davey Force, Frances Heard, Marion Barker, Ruth Chandler, Elma Clemons, Mary Loth- rop, Herlene Seavey, Fred Stearns, Ellen Wiley, Hester Charles, Bion Cram, Olive Eastman, Dorothy Hall, Horace Hill, Donald Kilgour, Evelyn Moulton, Francis Skillings, Elsie Smith, Rita Spring, John Thurlow, June Upton. THE ACADEMY BELL- 41 EDITH A. SAWYER PRIZE I At an assembly, April 18, Miss Elizabeth Rundlett was awarded the Edith A. Sawyer English Prize. This prize is awarded each year to the student using the best spoken and written English. The prize, when sent to Mr. LaCasce, was accompanied by a very pleasing letter from Miss Sawyer.

The increase is largely from the Freshman class. Meetings have been of a more variable nature than in previous years and when possible they have been held out of doors. The first gathering, when the club numbered ten veterans from the previous year, was the occasion of the annual steak roast at Lovewell's Pond. Knives and forks 42 THE ACADEMY BELL were rather minus, but appetites whetted by the keen Octo- ber air easily consumed a half pound of steak per capita. In November came the Initiation Meeting. The His- tory room on the second floor of the Academy building in some mysterious manner became transformed into a verit- able den of Pluto. Each candidate was "ferried" across the Styx by Charon C Louis Solarij , escorted by the dim portals of the Nether entrance to Hades and introduced to Dis and Persephone CGerard Groder, who caused much merriment with his long beard and pitch-fork, and Marion Barker in the guise of the queenl. Ellen Wiley represented the obstacles of Latin I. William Force impersonated the great Caesar, Osgood Pike, Cicero, and William Berry, Virgil. Final report at the Elysian Fields refreshed the famished Wanderers with "Nectar of the Gods." At a Christmas meeting the Aedile Committee arranged a tree with exchange of gifts in the Roman fashion. Games and dancing completed the evening's entertainment. In February Circulus Latinus, French Club and Com- mercial Club combined talent arranged a very successful masquerade ball. Modernistic decorations under the super- vision of Gerard Groder transformed the gymnasium into a pleasing ballroom. Music by the Academy orchestra was ably directed. In May a second initiation was staged as a treas- ure hunt. "Buddy" Springer, Helen Crouse, Violet Hutchins and Jay Lawrence were taught the mysteries of the Club at various points along the way. At Lovewell's Pond the dogs, rolls, punch and marshmallows, disrobed of their Latin names, proved very good eating to the "hungry hunters." Dancing at the gym followed. COMMERCIAL CLUB The requirement for membership in the Commercial Club this year was a mark of C plus in at least one commer- cial subject. At the first meeting, held at Gordon Hall, the following club officers were elected: President, Linwood Seaveyg Vice President, Elden Burnellg Secretary, Herlene Seaveyg Treasurer, Maxine Clemons. After the business meeting the entertainment committee furnished the program for the evening. Nineteen new members were added to the club. The initiation meeting was held at Gordon Hall, and the new members furnished a very interesting program. After the THE ACADEMY BELL 43 initiation the party adjourned to the Gymnasium and danced. On February 19, the French, Latin and Commercial Clubs had a masquerade ball at the gymnasium. During the evening prizes were awarded as follows: Leah Mclntire for the best girl's costume, Vernon Skillings for the best boy's costume, and Ellen Wiley for the most original cos- tume. The school orchestra furnished the music for the evening. For one meeting, the French and Commercial Clubs went to North Fryeburg. The Willing Workers acted as hostesses for the clubs at a supper and dance. Everyone had a most enjoyable time. THE VARSITY CLUB The Varsity Club this year has a record membership. At the close of the football season five men, Bus Lawrence, Dan Cullinan, Joe Burns, Mike Jones and Stanley Brewer were found to be eligible for that coveted membership in the Club, and at the close of basketball and winter track, Elmer Bussell, Roland Clemons, and James Lawrence were also found to be candidates for membership. In February the Varsity Club gave a supper and dance, the proceeds of which went to pay for the sweaters. It was a great success and everybody had a good time. Probably the greatest entertainment, during this last year, for the students and townspeople was the initiation of new members. No one will forget Bussell fishing in the watering trough from the top of the monument, nor will they forget Joe Burns advising the town merchants how to run their businesses. We hope that at the close of baseball and track miany more men will be wearing their "F's." J AMES GUPTILL, '30. FRENCH CLUB l Any student who obtains a rank of C plus or better is eligible for membership in the French Club. At the first meeting of the year the following officers were elected: President, Gerald Burnellg Vice President, Ellsworth Law- rence, Secretary and Treasurer, Vivian Clemons. After the business meeting French games, dancing and refresh- ments were enjoyed. 44 THE ACADEMY BELL For one of its social meetings the Club went to North Fryeburg, where a supper was served by a group of ladies of the community. This was followed by a dance which everyone found enjoyable. On the evening of February 19, the French, Latin and Commercial Clubs gave a Masquerade Ball at the gym- nasium. This event was Well attended and the varied cos- tumes and the prizes awarded, not to mention the music, contributed to the success of the occasion. Before the close of the school year the Club plans to present a play as it did last year. Although this is a diffi- cult undertaking We all felt that our play last year, "L'Enfance de Jeanne D'Arc" was worth the eEort it necessitated. BIG FEET THE ACADEMY BELL 45 5 ' . 'M Z 9 . 1 1 1 If ' FOOTBALL The first game of the year was played with Cheverus. It was a close game all the way through, due to the fact that whenever Fryeburg got a touchdown the officials called the ball back. Cheverus won 7-6 on paper, but it was a moral victory for Fryeburg. The boys showed the stuff they were made of and Captain Webster proved his worth as captain. Berwick was the next game on the schedule and every- one wanted to see the boys in action. Those who came to the game were rewarded by seeing Fryeburg pile up a 25-6 score. There was no doubt then of the team's integrity and everyone looked forward to a successful season. The team journeyed down to Wolfeboro, New Hamp- shire, to play Brewster Academy. Although the score was only 13-6 in Fryeburg's favor the Brewster boys were done for the seasong their backfield was smashed up and the line was groggy. Dan Cullinan, a Fryeburg Academy boy, came through with one of his famous offside tackles and 46 THE ACADEMY BELL Pete was hitting them as hard as ever. The team was working smoothly and the chances of taking Hebron over looked good. When the boys played at Hebron something happened that threw them off their stride. It might have been the ride over in the truck or maybe the jinx was on our trail. Joe Burns hurt his ankle and that crippled the team, but the game that we should have won went in Hebron's favor, 21-6. This was a setback and made them work all the harder to get in shape for the next game. Bliss College came up from Lewiston one afternoon and Went back with a 32-0 defeat tacked on them. They didn't stand a show from the start but they were game and fought all the way. The boys had hit their stride again and were preparing for the last, but not least, game of the season with the Bowdoin Freshmen. November 1 was as dismal a day as anyone would want to see and the game with Bowdoin was considered cancelled. After a little argument the team left for Bowdoin, although there was some doubt as to whether they would play. When they arrived they were informed that the game would go on regardless of the weather. The game started in the rain and there were a great many fumbles. At the half Bowdoin led, 7-6. The next half the boys went in determined to win or die trying. They worked some trick plays and bewildered the Frosh with an aerial attack. At the end of the game the score stood 12-7 in Fryeburg's favor. This was the last game of football that many of the members of the team would play for Fryeburg and they certainly put all they had into it and deserved all the credit that they received.

This is the first year that Fryeburg has played in the State Conference and the team did well considering the strong competition. The team played just as hard when they were losing as they did when they were ahead. The games with Auburn School of Commerce, Lewiston High, and Hebron Academy, the thrillers of the season, were won or lost by small margins. Hard, fast, clean basketball was played in all the games and next year the chances for the Conference title will look a little better. Below are listed the games and their scores.

The team was made up mostly of new material, for only three girls had been on the squad the year before. Six games were played: two with Mexico, two with Berwick, and two with Bridgton Academy. Three were lost, two won, and one tied. Great improvement was shown toward the last, indicating a good team for the coming season. There were no trips like the famous Berwick trip of the first year, but we enjoyed them all. Here's three cheers for the team in the Fall of 1930! The line-up was as follows: C. Audrey Pendexter C. H. Marian Gilman R. W. Marion Barker L. W. June Upton L. I. Herlene Seavey R. I. Frances Heard L. H. B. Mary Sampson R. H. B. Betty Rundlett R. F. B. Eleanor Chase L. F. B. Zelma Abbott G. Evelyn Moulton GIRLS' BASKETBALL Ruth Marston, Captain Eleanor Chase, Manager We had with us this year only one player from last year's team. We played nine games, and had rather un- usual results as three were won, three lost, and three tied. The Freshman team surely gave the first team a good fight, which shows that there ought to be a scrappy little team for the coming years. Many of the Freshmen won their letters. THE ACADEMY BELL 51 Most of our games were played in our own gymnasium. The two games played here that were not returned were with Alfred High and Portland, Maine School of Com- merce. We tied with Alfred, 17-17, but lost to M. S. C., 39-17, which was our greatest defeat of the season. On our Portland trip to Waynilete Latin School we got into difficulties when it came time to go home. We went in two cars, Mr. LaCasce's and Mr. Larrabee's, and some on the train, an arrangement which was perfectly all right on the way down. Mr. Larrabee seemed to have lost himself in the "big city" so that left nine, large and small, to come home in "Mister's" car. Speeding was out of the question because of the springs and rough roads, but we reached home safely nevertheless, and none the worse for the trip. The team will lose only two of its members, and we hope for a sextette of good spirit and experience next year. This year's line-up was as follows: L. F. Frances Heard R. F. Herlene Seavey C.
